Baptism of the Holy Spirit- Matthew 3:11/John 1:29-34/Acts 19:1-6

MATTHEW 3:11- I BAPTIZE YOU WITH WATER FOR REPENTANCE, BUT HE WHO IS COMING AFTER ME IS MIGHTIER THAN I, WHOSE SANDALS I AM NOT WORTHY TO CARRY.  HE WILL BAPTIZE YOU WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE.  

 

JOHN 1:29- THE NEXT DAY HE SAW JESUS COMING TOWARD HIM, AND SAID, BEHOLD, THE LAMB OF GOD, WHO TAKES AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD!  THIS IS HE OF WHOM I SAID, AFTER ME COMES A MAN WHO RANKS BEFORE ME, BECAUSE HE WAS BEFORE ME.  I MYSELF DID NOT KNOW HIM, BUT FOR THIS PURPOSE I CAME BAPTIZING WITH WATER, THAT HE MIGHT BE REVEALED TO ISRAEL.  AND JOHN BORE WITNESS: I SAW THE HOLY SPIRIT DESCEND FROM HEAVEN LIKE A DOVE, AND IT REMAINED ON HIM.  I MYSELF DID NOT KNOW HIM, BUT HE WHO SENT ME TO BAPTIZE WITH WATER SAID TO ME, HE ON WHOM YOU SEE THE HOLY SPIRIT DESCEND AND REMAIN, THIS IS HE WHO BAPTIZES WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.  AND I HAVE SEEN AND HAVE BORNE WITNESS THAT THIS IS THE SON OF GOD.  

 

ACTS 19:1-6- AND IT HAPPENED THAT WHILE APOLLOS WAS AT CORINTH, PAUL PASSED THROUGH THE INLAND COUNTRY AND CAME TO EPHESUS.  THERE HE FOUND SOME DISCIPLES.  AND HE SAID TO THEM, DID YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT WHEN YOU BELIEVED?  AND THEY SAID, NO, WE HAVE NOT EVEN HEARD THAT THERE IS A HOLY SPIRIT.  AND HE SAID, INTO WHAT THEN WERE YOU BAPTIZED?  THEY SAID, INTO JOHN’S BAPTISM.  AND PAUL SAID, JOHN BAPTIZED WITH THE BAPTISM OF REPENTANCE, TELLING THE PEOPLE TO BEIEVE IN THE ONE WHO WAS TO COME AFTER HIM, THAT IS, JESUS.  ON HEARING THIS, THEY WERE BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS.  AND WHEN PAUL HAD LAID HIS HANDS ON THEM, THE HOLY SPIRIT CAME ON THEM, AND THEY BEGIN SPEAKING IN TONGUES AND PROPHESYING.
