The Baptism of the Holy Spirit

The Gospel of Grace Ministries with KIM BALOGH

Some Christians fail to understand that when one gets saved he has the Holy Spirit in him BUT not necessarily upon him for service. This is the Pentecostal doctrine which some reject, however it is scriptural. Jesus said the Holy Sprit “shall be in you and on you.”

Without the baptism in the Holy Spirit a Christian does not have the anointing on him that brings boldness and dumanis power in the Holy Spirit to be a witness to the world. This is why some are weak in the things of God because they reject or are ignorant of this biblical truth.

Do you want power from on high to be a witness for Jesus ? Ask the Father for it ! “What father among you, if his son asks ford a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:11-13

The “Baptism in the Holy Spirit” is a baptism, “in fire” or “power,” spoken of by Jesus in Acts 1:8

Jesus breathed on the disciples and said “Receive the Holy Spirit.’ Thus they were then born again. He then said, “tarry to receive the outpouring of the Spirit.”

Even after the out pouring on the day of Pentecost, believers were still receiving this outpouring, speaking in tongues and prophesying.

Jesus said with the outpouring or anointing for service he will give power to become Jesus Christ’s witnesses. Many who are born again have not has the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and are not equipped with this power from on high.

Matthew 3:11 – I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and [with] fire:

Acts 10:47 “Can anyone withhold water for baptizing these people, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to remain for some days.

Acts 10:44-45 While Peter was still saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the word. And the believers from among the circumcised who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles. For they were hearing them speaking in tongues and extolling God.

Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come UPON YOU and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Acts 19:6 And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking in tongues and prophesying.

Acts 8:14-17 Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John, who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for he had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a distinct and separate experience from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that occurs at salvation: John 7:37-39; Acts 2:37-38; Acts 8:15-16; Acts 10:44-45.

Please note however that in this regard the Pentecostals err, for they believe that the sign of this baptism is speaking in tongues but scriptures show that some when baptized in the Holy Spirit prophesied with no mention of tongues. God gives each the gifts that he desires according to his will as the bible clearly states.

When I got baptized in the Holy Spirit I did not get tongues initially, rather I began to see in the spirit realm, which is the gift of the discerning of spirits. I saw the shekinah glory, demons and angels battling and had quite the warfare with the demonic realm who thought that they could get tough with me by manifesting and pushing me around the room.

When the Lord began to show me the power in his name, then the demons stopped bugging me. They have to try sneakiness now because they know that I am not afraid of them. After all I have the dumanis power of the Holy Spirit working for me by his grace!

Ministering Evangelism through music (vocals and guitar) Administration; started church support groups, started various different outreaches over the years, Internet ministry. My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
