BAPTISM- Tonight Pastor Gabriel Swaggart preaches from Acts 19:1. He says we find here, three references to baptism. One into Christ, one into water, and the third, a Spirit Baptism. The Baptism into Christ references Salvation, because we put our faith in Christ and Him Crucified we then, in the eyes of God, have died, are buried and resurrected with Him in newness of life. This is the death of our old man. The Baptism of water is an ordinance, and not a sacrament. Brother Gabe says, this in no way is a requirement for salvation; it merely is an outward sign of what has already happened on the inside. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, is when a born again Christian is filled with the Holy Spirit and speaks with other tongues, giving the power of God to the believer. He saved us to be a witness for Him, and He gives us the power to do it. He gives power to lay hands on the sick, to share the Gospel and be a witness for Christ to see revival. Brother Gabe reminds us we cannot do this on our own; we need His power to fulfill His call on our lives.
