TEXT: ACTS 1:4-5
(4) And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
(5) For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
KEY VERSE: ACTS 1:8
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Baptism of the Holy Ghost is the imparting of the power of the Holy Spirit in baptismal measure upon a Believer in Christ. The experience imparts on the Believer power for effective Christian service. Speaking in tongues as the spirit gives utterance is the initial outward sign accompanying the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Act 2:4 says, “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,
Another result of the baptism in the Holy Ghost is the manifestation of various gifts of the Spirit. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are still valid today.
I Corinthians 12: 7-11
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
However, baptism with the Holy Ghost is not a requirement for entering Heaven. What qualifies for Heaven is holiness.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Holy Ghost Baptism is the impartation of his power.
SONG FOR THE DAY: The power, the power the Pentecost power…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Proverbs 19-20; 2 Corinthians 3
