. He will baptize you [who truly repent] with the Holy Spirit. Matthew 3:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version
There are some who get baptized for marriage ( so one of the intended is a member of a church and the only way they can get married is if the other one gets baptized into that church ). That is not true baptism.
I have seen some get baptized for social reasons or financial ones ( I only do business with this church so you must be a member or if you want Jehovahs blessings you must be baptized first). They want to fit in with a certain crowd. That is not true baptism.
I have see and experienced true baptism. When it occurs those baptized are on fire for Christ. They cannot stop talking about Him and praising Him.
For me it was at a revival in a big tent. The minister asked for any willing to step forward and talk with Jehovah privately. When that was occurring I felt as if my whole being was filled with an amazing light. I could not stop shouting my love for Christ. Afterwards many in the crowd came to me and informed me that I was glowing like a light bulb ( I am not saying that, that is what will happen every time, just my own personal experience).
Now THAT was a true baptism.
I do not believe you need water submission to be baptized, just a heart that surrenders to Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for redeeming me with Your awesome gift of the Holy Spirit. I laud You in the name of He whose sacrifice provided for this blessing Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
