Foundational Teachings – Baptism of Spirit
In today’s session, we expounded the Baptism of Spirit as it is taught in the Bible, esp. in the NT. Baptism of the Spirit of God has its different dimentions or operations.
- Firstly, it comes with our new birth into the spiritual life in Christ. It confirms that a disciple now has a new life in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. He or she is now being sealed or seeded with the life of Sonship.
- Secondly, it comes with our growth or maturity in Christ. It empowers us with spiritual gifts for purposes of education and service, in the receiving and in the offering.
- Finally, which is what happened primarily and essentially on the Day of Pentecost, it comes with one’s officiation into his or her priestly commission or office in Christ as a son of God or a priest of God under the headship of Christ. We will have our name changed and revealed in the heavenly realms. It graces or delegates us with authority and power in the Name of Christ Jesus.
