There Are Three Spiritual Baptisms!

Three Spiritual Baptisms.

#1) Baptism of repentance

#2) Baptism of the Holy Ghost

#3) Baptism of Death for the Word sake.

#1) Baptism of repentance

(Mat 20:22) But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.

(Mar 1:4) John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

(Luk 3:3) And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;

(1Pe 3:21) The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

(Mat 3:1) In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

(Mat 3:2) And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

(Mat 3:3) For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

(Mat 3:4) And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

(Mat 3:5) Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,

(Mat 3:6) And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

(Mat 3:7) But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

(Mat 3:8) Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

(Mat 3:9) And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

(Mat 3:10) And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: (Trees are men!) therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

(Mat 3:11) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

(Mat 3:12) Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
(John 15:6
(John 15:6) If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.)

(Mat 3:13) Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

(Mat 3:14) But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

(Mat 3:15) And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

(Mat 3:16) And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

(Mat 3:17) And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Luke 3:1-17

(Luk 3:1) Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,

(Luk 3:2) Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.

(Luk 3:3) And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;

(Luk 3:4) As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

(Luk 3:5) Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;

(Luk 3:6) And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

(Luk 3:7) Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

(Luk 3:8) Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

(Luk 3:9) And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

(Luk 3:10) “And the people” asked him, saying, What shall we do then?

(Luk 3:11) He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.

(Luk 3:12) Then came also “publicans” to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?

(Luk 3:13) And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.

(Luk 3:14) And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

2) Baptism of the Holy Ghost
(Mat 3:11) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

(Mat 3:12) Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. (Wheat and chaff are men.)

(Mar 1:8) I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

(Luk 3:15) And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;

(Luk 3:16) John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

(Luk 3:17) Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

Acts 1:1-12

(Act 1:1) The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

(Act 1:2) Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:

(Act 1:3) To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

(Act 1:4) 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.

(Act 1:5) For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

(Act 1:6) When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?

(Act 1:7) And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

(Act 1:8) But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

(Act 1:9) And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

(Act 1:10) And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

(Act 1:11) “Which also said”, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
(Jesus returned in Acts chapter 2 on the day of Pentecost in the form of the Holy Ghost!)

(Act 1:12) Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day’s journey.

Acts 8:1-24 (The Holy Ghost given by the disciples by the laying on of hands. Why Simon could not receive the Holy Ghost!)

(Act 8:1) And Saul (Paul the apostle) was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.

(Act 8:2) And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.

(Act 8:3) As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.

(Act 8:4) Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.

(Act 8:5) Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.

(Act 8:6) And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake,

hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.

(Act 8:7) For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.

(Act 8:8) And there was great joy in that city.

(Act 8:9) But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:

(Act 8:10) To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.

(Act 8:11) And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

(Act 8:12) But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

(Act 8:13) Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

(Act 8:14) Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:

(Act 8:15) Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:

(Act 8:16) (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)

(Act 8:17) Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

(Act 8:18) And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,

(Act 8:19) Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.

(Act 8:20) But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.

(Act 8:21) Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. (You must have a pure and repentant heart to receive the Holy Ghost!)

(Act 8:22) Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.

(Act 8:23) “””””For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity”””.

(Act 8:24) Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.

Acts 19:1-12 (People who had been baptized by John the Baptist were re-baptized by Paul the apostle in the name of Jesus Christ and receiving the Holy Ghost with the sign of speaking in tongues!)

(Act 19:1) And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,

(Act 19:2) He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.

(Act 19:3) And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.

(Act 19:4) Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

(Act 19:5) When they heard this, they were (re-) baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

(Act 19:6) And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

(Act 19:7) And all the men were about twelve.

#3) Baptism of Death for the Word sake.

(Mat 20:22) But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.
