What does it mean to be baptized with the Holy Spirit?
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is not for the purpose of cleansing from sin,
but for the purpose of empowering for service.
The baptism with the Holy Spirit imparts power, power for service.
While the baptism with the Spirit imparts power,
the way in which that power will be manifested
depends upon the work to which God has called us
and no efficient work can be done without it.
How can we obtain this baptism with the Holy Spirit?
One: Repent – change your mind about God, Christ, and about sin.
Accept Jesus as Christ and Lord.
Two: Renounce – renounce sin, all sin, every sin.
Three: Be water baptized in the name of Jesus Christ
unto the remission of your sins.
Four: Obedience – this is a total surrender of your will for God’s will.
There is nothing to be feared in God’s will.
Five: Desire – desire the baptism of the Holy Spirit
not for your own selfish means,
but for the Glory of God.
Six: Ask – it is the simple act of asking God for this definite blessing.
Seven: Believe – believe that you have received,
ask in faith, nothing wavering.
