Hebrews 6:2 tells of the doctrine of baptisms. Plural. There are at least three baptisms in NT Scripture.
1. Baptism OF the Holy Spirit – Into the Body of Christ
2. Baptism BY disciples of Christ – In water
3. Baptism WITH the Holy Spirit by Jesus
All are unique in their purpose.
#1&3 are spiritual (invisible).
#2 is symbolic. (visible)
#1 is New Birth and Promise Completion
#2 is New Identity by Public Confession
#3 is New Power to Proclaim the Kingdom of God
In restoring the Supernatural Church , #3 is imperative. Without the power of the Holy Spirit enabling the Church to be His witnesses, believers are nothing more than another philosophy. And just like all other philosophies only as convincing as the intellect and charisma of the speaker.
Unfortunately, #3, the most necessary for advancing the Kingdom of God in the earth is the most neglected, debated and incorrectly taught of the three. Tongues for speaking directly to God and not man, power to be His witnesses and confirmation of the Gospel of Christ and His resurrection are not welcome or taught in many “churches” today.
But it is and always will be taught and practiced by true Bible believers.
Jesus IS restoring the Supernatural Church.
