Acts 2:17-21
Acts 1:8
John 20:21-22
Deut. 2:31
Deut 1:8

‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.(the anointing) In those days I will pour out my Spirit on those who are serving me

But YOU will receive power (the anointing) when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”  And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

I have given you this land. Go in and take possession

“I have begun to give… begin to possess.”

Joel 2
Acts 2

In the last days I will pour out my spirit (Anointing)

  How to receive / refire The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Intro..

I’ve had the opportunity over the past years of ministry to lead hundreds of people into the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Both one-on-one and in large meetings,

I’ve seen the transformation of lives and families.

Today I want to give you the steps to which the encounter of the BHS takes place so it can be helpful to those who are pursuing the Lord.

Also to those who need REFIRING

“Let me introduce this with my story”

  How to receive / refire The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

How to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit:

  • Familiarize yourself with scriptures where the Holy Spirit is promised.

Joel 2:28-29 ‘And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.  Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.

Luke 3:16 But one more powerful than I will come, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire

Luke 11:13  how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

John 1:33  ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is he who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’

John 7:37-39 If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”  39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive.

Acts 1:4-5  On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. 5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

Acts 1: 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Acts 8:15-17 When they arrived, they prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit, 17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.

Acts 19:6 When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.

  • Pray the prayer of invitation

“Lord Jesus Christ, I believe with all my heart that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is meant for me.

Just as I trust you for my eternal salvation  I trust you now to baptize me in the Holy Spirit.

I opened my life to receive the fullness of your Holy Spirit and

I thank you in Jesus’ name that you are filling me.

I ask for the gift of my prayer language now and I receive it in Jesus’ name.

 

  • Receive the Holy Spirit within

Know that at this very moment the Holy Spirit is moving into your life in a new and powerful way in answer to your prayer.
