The Three Baptisms
Yes or No Game
Rules: I will ask you two questions-you can say yes or no-but you can only say yes once and no once.
- Are you an overwhelmingly loved and sought after person?
- Are you lying?
- The Holy Spirit baptizes us into Jesus (1 Corinthians 12:13) “One Body”- Salvation
- The disciple baptizes us in water (Matthew 28:19)
- Jesus baptizes us in the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11)
Acts 8:12-17 (NKJV)-5 years after Pentecost
12 But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized.
13 Then Simon himself also believed; and when he was baptized he continued with Philip, and was amazed, seeing the miracles and signs which were done. 14 Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, 15 who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. 16 For as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
Acts 19:1-6 (NKJV) – 25 Years after Pentecost
Paul who wrote a third of the New Testament 1 And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples 2 he said to them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?" So they said to him, "We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit." 3 And he said to them, "Into what then were you baptized?" So they said, "Into John's baptism." 4 Then Paul said, "John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus." 5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.
