Raising a people of purpose


The Word: Acts 1: 4(KJV)

And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.

Acts 1: 5  (KJV)

For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

Think about it

If someone promised you something special by 3pm in the afternoon. If the gift is very special and important, You will look forward to it.
A gift is something voluntarily by the giver. It is not something you earn or work for. The Holy Spirit is the father’s gift after Jesus. We can’t earn or work to deserve him really. Jesus told his disciples not to leave Jerusalem until the promise of the father has come. In other words, even though Kingdom service is important, The baptism or immersion of The Holy Spirit is more important.  Jesus did not start ministry until he was baptised by the father. There are similarities in the 3 baptism. There are also differences…. Let’s do a practical of going through to differentiate them

What is the meaning of Baptism?
What are the 3 types of baptism in scriptures
What is the material for baptism?
Who baptises?
Was there any prophetic before?

The promise of the father is still awaiting if you need him…
