Yesterday I was asked to explain what it means to be baptized in the Holy Spirit.

Yehshua commissioned His disciples in what is known as the great commission to go and teach all nations to do as He taught them and to baptize them.

We read this in;

Matt 28:18-20

18 And Yehshua came and spoke to them, saying, all authority is given to me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go therefore instruct all nations, baptizing them “INTO” the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit:

20 Teaching them to guard or to hold fast to all things whatsoever have been commanded or charged to you: and behold, I am with you always, even until the completion of this age.

There has been little focus on Yehshua’s instructions to teach the world that they must live by His Father’s every word as He taught us to do.

As a matter of fact, this instruction has been missing from the false gospel that Christianity has brought to the world.

This commission has not been fulfilled because man has rejected that which we were commanded to teach to all nations.

The gospel that we were to take into the world was that our Creator is building a kingdom of kings and priests.

He is building a royal family if you will out of those who chose be molded by Him to be transformed into His image or into His name.

This good news was to include His offer to man-kind of a way to be forgiven for their transgressions so that He and His Son would come and live in them through the power of His Spirit that would teach them His character.

He sent His Son to the scattered tribes of Israel and to the nation of Judea with a renewal of the old marriage covenant that Israel had rejected by committing adultery with Him.

They had went to whoring after other images of Him which was not of Him nor of His name.

His offer to forgive them or us is based on genuine repentance or turning from our ways and returning to His path.

The 10 scattered tribes of Israel rejected this covenant by perverting it and remained in captivity, all except the small flock that He continued to call out of the whoredom to become His first fruits.

And most of Judah and Benjamin rejected it altogether and they were sent into captivity as well.

And Judah and Benjamin drifted into the perversions of the covenant that the other tribes had embraced.

The scattered tribes of Israel took their perversion of covenant to the world instead.

But we read that the good news of His kingdom will still go out to the whole world before the end of this era will come.

Yehshua tells us this in;

Matt 24:14

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then the end will come.

Most everyone in the world does not even have a clue what the good news of His coming kingdom is.

And they are not going to want to hear it either.

This is why it is going to take the world coming unglued to make it possible for His gospel to go out and be heard.

It will go out by the power of His spirit on the wings of the great affliction that is being released into the world as I speak.

When I said that this covenant included His offer for Him and His Son to take up residence in us through the power of His spirit, this is conditional on our genuine repentance.

Our repentance is our part of signing the contract.

If we do sign the contract, and our signature is real, then we are instructed to be submerged under water as an outward sign of this signature.

There is a reason for this outward sign of being baptized as I will continue to explain.

It is a symbol of something of greater significance.

At this point, when we are baptized, He gives us His seven spirits to guide and to teach us, this is representative of Him and His Son making their abode with us and being baptized in His Spirit.

Here is the catch, He told us;

19 Go therefore instruct all nations, baptizing them “INTO” the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit:

We cannot even be taught what His name is unless we first have a fear of losing out on His offer to be a part of His kingdom.

Man has not feared Him, nor have they feared going against why they were created, except for the small flock.

The spirit of the fear of YEHWEH is the fear of being in disagreement with Him and it is given to us if we truly want His rule over our lives.

We have to want to be made in His image and want what makes us in His image.

The spirit of the fear of YEHWEH is given to us if we really want to be molded by Him into His image.

His image or His character is His name. In the Greek language in the new testament it is the word logos.

The logos of Elohiym is the name that Yehshua was given.

His instructions or His Torah define His logos. They define His name.

This is what the baptism into the Holy Spirit is about because His Spirit guides us into all truth and writes His Torah in our inward parts.

His spirit bears witness with His logos. It represents the same name.

It is the name that we must bear if we are walking in the covenant with Him.

Defying or perverting His name in any way is breaking the 3rd commandment;

Ex 20:7

7 You shall not bear the name of YEHWEH Elohiym falsely or in a desolating way; because YEHWEH will not hold him guiltless that bears His name falsely.

Baptism is a symbol of being cleansed and coming into the contract with Him to bear His name or bear His nature.

It is agreeing to be made in His image.

Jeremiah explains in chapter 31 that the new covenant is one where He will write His Torah in our hearts and in our inward parts.

He does this through His spirit.

If you reject His Torah, obviously your repentance is not real because repentance is turning from our ways to His was and His way is outlined through His Torah.

How can His Torah be written in your heart by His spirit if you never turned to desiring it in the first place?

It cannot.

My Father does not force His way on us, it has to be a choice and a desire on our part to want Him.

His temple has been built and it is made up of those who came to His call and chose His way and chose to be molded by Him through His Torah.

Now we have entered into a time where He is calling the whole world to become part of a later harvest into His family.

The good news continues.

The new covenant is going out to the world by the power of His spirit and He is revealing more about the baptism process to give it increased understanding for these people.

Sadly it is going to take much destruction to humble a people to a point of listening to Him though.

He said that He would give His two witnesses the authority to turn the water into blood.

We read this in;

Rev 11:6

These have the authority to shut heaven so that it does not rain not in the days of their prophecy: AND THEY WILL HAVE THE AUTHORITY OVER WATER TO TURN IT TO BLOOD, and to smite the earth with all plagues as often as they will.

The authority has been given to turn the water into blood and this later harvest is being called to Him through the process of being baptized into His Son’s blood, just as the first fruits were cleansed by His blood.

But being baptized in His blood has not been taught.

Yehshua’s first recorded miracle was at the wedding at Cana.

He used the water pots that the Jewish people of that day used for ritualistic cleansing for this miracle.

They used these pots for rituals of cleansing themselves from their sins.

He had these 6 pots filled with water and He turned the water into wine.

The six pots are representative of the 6,000 years of man that the first fruits were called out of.

His disciples and John the Baptist baptized people under the water as a sign of their agreeing to repent so that they could be cleansed.

This repentance is agreeing to turn from our ways to our Creator’s ways.

It is agreeing to turn to His path and leave our life for His kingdom’s sake.

We are also taught that sin or transgression of the law carries a death penalty unless it is atoned for by blood.

Water cannot cleanse us, it is only symbolism and in this case, it is symbolism of His Son’s shed blood.

The sacrificial system was to teach us the exceedingly high price that transgressing His law costs so that we would learn to not sin.

Transgressing His laws destroys relationships and it destroys families. It causes hurt and sufferings to others.

This is why it is so wicked. It opposes my Father’s very nature and it is His very nature that we are to become in agreement with.

Yehshua turned the water into wine and He used these 6 pots as a vehicle for this sign. And it was a sign. He did nothing without teaching us or pointing to something.

In this case, this sign was pointing to something in the future.

Then later, during the night before His murder, He teaches His disciples that the wine is a symbol of His shed blood, shed for the remission of sins.

This was symbolic that His Father was turning the water that we are baptized in, into His blood.

His death paid the price for all who would be baptized into His blood.

Water baptism is a symbol of being baptized into His blood but it is conditional on being baptized into the name of His Father and into His name through the power of His Holy Spirit.

And in order for the water to be turned into His blood, our signature must be real.

We must be fighting to want to live by His every word.

Christianity has trampled underfoot His shed blood by trampling underfoot why He shed it on their behalf.

It all goes back to wanting to be made in His image. This is the reason that He created us.

We either want Him in spirit and in truth and want to be fashioned by Him or we want to decide right from wrong for ourselves which was the original sin that Adam and Eve chose.

One of the biggest perversions of the process of being baptized is the charismatic movement that came from the false teachings of Saul and Luke.

People get these beliefs from the book of Acts and Saul’s teachings about speaking in tongues and such.

The book of Acts was written by Luke and there are many contradictions in it and there is much error in his writings as with Saul’s and Mark’s.

These people think they are being baptized in the Holy spirit if they can come out speaking in tongues and all sorts of crazy stuff.

Of course none of it is about being made in their Creator’s image which is why we are here.

All of this comes from the lies that came out from Saul of Tarsus who has led billions from my Father’s path with all of his false teachings.
Satan has had his way with these people.

They claim that they have a spiritual feeling when they receive this baptism of what they call the Holy Spirit. Well, this is certainly true.

They certainly invited spirits into them without a doubt and I am sure they experienced a feeling. But the spirit that they are being baptized with is not YEHWEH Elohiym’s Spirit.

The demons have a hay day with this movement.

These people have rejected their Creator’s protection from the demons by rejecting His word that His Son and His prophets spoke.

Instead they chose to believe the lies of Saul who took them away from His truth.

I have not met one tongue speaking person yet that has my Father’s commandments and the same faith that Yehshua had and scripture tells us that these two things are the identifying description of who His saints are.

John the Baptist said;

John 1:32-34

32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove and it abode on Him.

33 And I knew him not: but He that sent me to baptize with water, the same said to me, upon whom you shall see the Spirit descending and remaining on Him, THE SAME IS HE WHICH BAPTIZES IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.

34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of Elohiym.

The account of this in Matthew 3:11 adds “and with fire” to this baptism of the Holy Spirit.

The word “with” is not in the original text and if you read on in Matthew, the next verse shows that the word fire is tied in with this next verse and the chaff being burnt up.

All who are not baptized in the Holy Spirit will be burnt up as chaff in the lake of fire.

Yehshua turns our baptism into a baptism of His Father’s Spirit by atoning for our transgressions.

His blood is this atonement.

This atonement is made on our behalf when His Father turns the water that we are baptized in, into the shed blood of His Son.

At that point, if our part of the contract is validated with genuine repentance, they take up their residence in us through His Spirit and His seven spirits guide us into all truth.

Your repentance is not real if you are not agreeing to be baptized into their character or their very nature.

This is what being baptized into their name represents.

As I said earlier, the fear of not being in agreement with their name that we are to bear is a pre-requisite.

It is the eye salve that anoints our eyes.

The baptism of the Holy Spirit is the receiving of His Spirit when we have entered into this covenant relationship with our Creator and His Son through His blood and through our repentance.

It is not smoke and mirrors, that is satan’s job.

The whole charismatic movement with the speaking of tongues and people falling backwards, being “slain in the spirit” and such is just satan’s smoke and mirrors to keep people deceived.

His spirit then teaches us His logos through walking with them on His narrow path.
