Three Spiritual Baptisms

THREE SPIRITUAL BAPTISMS

Matthew|13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of
heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in “three”
measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

John|3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler
of the Jews:
John|3:2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi,
we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these
miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
John|3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say
unto thee, Except a man be born again, “he cannot see” the kingdom of
God.
John|3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is
old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
John|3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a
man be born of water and of the Spirit, “he cannot enter” into the
kingdom of God.

Matthew|13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of
heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three
measures of meal, till the whole was leavened
Jesus tells us that the kingdom of God is in three levels. In the parable above the meal is a level in the kingdom we are to go through. Each level is leavened with leaven. This leaven is God giving us revelation as we with a pure heart study the Word of God.
Nicodemus in John 3 comes to Jesus asking about the kingdom of heaven. The first thing that Jesus tells him is, you must be born again to “see” the Kingdom. This being the Holy Ghost spoken of by Jesus in John 14.

John|14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do,
that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
John|14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
John|14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
John|14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you
another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
John|14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot
receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know
him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
John|14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
John|14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but
ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
John|14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and
ye in me, and I in you.
John|14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is
that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and
I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
John|14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that
thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
John|14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he
will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto
him, and make our abode with him.
John|14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the
word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
John|14:25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present
with you.
John|14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the
Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring
all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
John|14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as
the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.
John|14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come
again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I
go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
John|14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that,
when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
John|14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince
of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
John|14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and
as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go
hence.
When Nicodemus asked Jesus how a man can be born again Jesus went on to tell him about two more things. The Spiritual water and the Spiritual Spirit. As we look at scripture we see the spiritual word water in John 4 and what Jesus said about it.

John|4:7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith
unto her, Give me to drink.
John|4:8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy
meat.)
John|4:9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that
thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for
the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
John|4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the
gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou
wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee “living water”.
John|4:11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw
with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living
water?
John|4:12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the
well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
John|4:13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of
this water shall thirst again:
John|4:14 “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him
shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in
him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”
John|4:15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I
thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

Another scripture about spiritual water.
Ephesians|5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved
the church, and gave himself for it;
Ephesians|5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with “the
washing of water by the word”,
Ephesians|5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious
church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it
should be holy and without blemish.
As we see the water is the Word of God who is Jesus Christ who’s spiritual name is “The Word of God”, or the Son of God.
Jesus also told Nicodemus that he had to be born again of the Spirit. Jesus was telling Nicodemus that he had to be born again by the Spirit of the Father, Love. Its not enough to be born of Jesus but we must be born again by the Spirit of God.

1 John|3:9 Whosoever is “born of God” doth not commit sin; for his
seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
1 John|3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the
children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God,
neither he that loveth not his brother.
1 John|3:11 For this is the message that ye heard from the
beginning, that we should love one another.

This scripture tells us that we must be born again of the Spirit of God the Father. If we sin, we have not been born again of the Father, but are still in the lower levels of training in the kingdom.

Matthew|28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power
is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Matthew|28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Matthew|28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have
commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of
the world. Amen.

Go ye therefore and “teach”. Jesus is telling us here that we are to teach all nations about the three spiritual baptisms.
1) the Baptism of the Holy Ghost
2) the Baptism of the Son (The Word of God.)
3) the Baptism of the Father where we do not sin. (THe Baptism of Love, the Father.)

There have been debates in the church because of carnal men not understanding the natural water baptism. There is a key to proving scripture and that is by proving all truths by two or three scriptures. If you cannot find two or more scriptures telling you the same thing, its not truth.
As we us this key we see that the Apostles always baptized in the name of Jesus Christ in baptism. Never did they baptize in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. If you are baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost you have not been baptized with the power of Jesus name. There is no other name given under heaven whereby a man must be saved.

Romans|8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the
dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also
quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

If the Spirit of Him that raised Christ from the dead dwell in you, (That Spirit is the Spirit of the Father) He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also “Quicken”, make alive) your mortal body “By” the Spirit that dwelleth in you.

But if you sin you do not have the Spirit of the Father in you therefore you will not be quickened because the Spirit is not in you.

1 Corinthians|12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man
speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no
man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

This scripture tells us that there are three manifestations of God.
1) The Spirit of God the Father
2) Jesus Christ
3) the Holy Ghost, the Comforter

If you do not have the Holy Ghost as the scriptures teach, you cannot call Jesus Lord. This includes speaking in tongues. Everyone who recieved the Holy Ghost in the book of Acts spoke in tongues when they recieved the Holy Ghost. It also tells us that if you do not have a pure heart, and haven’t repented, you will not receive the Holy Ghost.

As Jesus said, You must be born again of the Holy Ghost to see the Kingdom (And understand scripture).
You must be born again of the water, the Word of God.
And you must be born again of the Spirit of God to “enter into the Kingdom of God”.

John|3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a
man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot “enter” into the
kingdom of God.

I am 68 years young and am a believer in Jesus Christ as the scriptures teaches. I was saved, and recieved the Holy Ghost when I was twelve years old, but when I turned thirty-five years old my world fell apart and I called out WHY GOD?

From that time on I was studying the word of God sometimes ten and twelve hours a day plus praying and fasting. Love God, writing, Photography, Music, guitar, people, science, travel, teaching the word of God, life!
