BE FISHERS OF MEN
Man is a spirit that lives in a body, and has a soul.
The soul is the mind, the will and the emotions.
Adam left man a legacy,
Man is born a sinner.
Only being born again,
can the Spirit of God enter.
When born again the spirit,
of man is made new.
Jesus said, “There is a baptism
to be baptized with…”
made available to you.
Paul recognized the baptism of the Holy Spirit,
He said unto them, “Have you received the Holy Spirit
since you believed” And they said unto him, we have
not so much as heard whether there is any Holy Spirit;
and he said unto them, unto, what were you baptized?
Any they said, unto John’s baptism, then said Paul,
John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance.
Saying unto the people that they should believe on who
should come after him, that is on Christ Jesus.
And when Paul laid his hands on them, and they spoke
in tongues and prophesied.”
People tend to listen to others,
and as a result, the Holy Spirit, they decline.
Speaking in tongues is of the devil, they are told,
but Paul, was of a different mind.
Jesus said, “I have a baptism to be baptized with;
and how am I constrained; till it be accomplished.”
“But the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father
will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and
bring all things to your remembrance, whatever I have
said unto you.”
“If you love Me, keep My Commandments and I will pray the
Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that
He may abide with you forever.”
“But this spoke He of The Spirit, which they that believe
on Him should receive; for the Holy Spirit was not
yet given, because that Jesus was not yet glorified.”
“Nevertheless, I tell you the truth;It is expedient for you
that I go away; for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come
unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you.”
“You shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of, and with
the baptism that I am baptized withal shall you be baptized,”
“Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass,
that Jesus, also, being baptized, and praying, the heaven
was opened. And the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily shape
like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from Heaven, which said,
You are my beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”
Luke 3:21, 22
“The Kingdom of God comes not with observation; neither shall
they say, lo here or, lo there! For, behold, the Kingdom of God
is within you.”
Luke 17:20, 21
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believes on Me, the works
that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do
, because I go unto My Father,And whatsoever you shall ask in My name,
that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you shall ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
One thing to remember,
Jesus was not baptized for remission of sin.
He was baptized in the Holy Spirit,
and the power He received allowed His ministry to begin.
Now it is your decision,
to remain a Baby Christian, without God’s power;
or accept Jesus’ Word, as truth; and accept the baptism,
He offers, it can be yours this very hour.
‘And He said unto them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
