Immersion in the Holy Spirit

Α-Ω

"Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ,

let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation

of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,

of the doctrine of immersions, of laying on of hands,

of resurrection of the dead and of eternal judgment.

And this we will do if God permits," Hebrews 6'1-3.

"... how much more

will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit

to those who ask Him!," Luke 11'13.

IMMERSION IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

At the same time as the Lord's first Disciples were being immersed in the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, His arrival was signifying something far greater.

The coming of the Holy Spirit conveyed the wonderful confirmation - Jesus had been glorified.

Ten days had passed since the Lord's ascension. Having completed on earth what God had sent Him to do, Jesus presented Himself and His work to the Father, was received and was glorified.

Earlier John refers to this and gives some background. The occasion was at a Feast of Tabernacles:

"On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying,

'If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.

He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water'".

John explained:

"... this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified," John 7'37-38.
