Divine Revelations





"I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I,whose sandals I am not worthy to carry.
He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire." Matthew 3:11

The bible says,"unless you are born of water and Spirit,you can never enter the Kingdom of heaven.
That which is born of flesh,is flesh,and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit."John 3:5-6
When we come to Christ, we get baptised in water,through complete submerging according to the bible.
This represents death and burial of the old sinful person,and resurrection in Jesus Christ as a brand new person!
But the bible also speaks of Spiritual rebirth.
Because God is Spirit,to become His children we must be born of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would be given to all who would believe in Him.
According to the bible, receiving the Holy Spirit is a must for believers, and Jesus talked about the work that the Holy Spirit would do in the lives of believers.
He referred to the Holy Spirit as "The helper" of believers(John 16:7) because it is actually the Holy Spirit in us who overcomes the world,on our own, we can never overcome.
Jesus said the Holy Spirit would also," convict the world of sin,of righteousness, and of judgement "(John 16:8).
When the Holy Spirit fills us,because He is holy,He makes us to also become holy.
The Holy Spirit baptism is God Himself coming to live inside of us.
He convicts us when we sin,and He shows us what true righteousness is,and He starts to change us to make us like Jesus.
After Jesus resurrected, He told His disciples not to go out to preach yet,but to wait in Jerusalem till they receive the Holy Spirit.
(Luke 24:49)
And in Acts:2:1-4 we see a fulfilment of Jesus' promise.
" suddenly there came a loud sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind,and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
Then there appeared to them forked tongues,as of fire,and one sat upon each of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues,as the Spirit gave them utterance. "
This was the first time believers were baptized with the Holy Spirit but this kept happening to all those who believed.
It was Christ's promise to His church, and its still His promise to today's church.
We still have the promise of the Holy Spirit baptism and Jesus is still very willing to put His Spirit in anyone who surrenders and believes in Him.
Sometimes people ask if they have the Holy Spirit, but when you have received the Holy Spirit, you will know it,its not a subtle event,it changes your entire life!
Sometimes people are taught that if you have confessed Christ with your mouth and accepted Him as your Lord and Savior then you have automatically been baptized with the Holy Spirit and you don't need to seek more.
While the Holy Spirit baptism can take place at the very time you accept Jesus,e.g Acts 10:44-46,its isn't always the case and often believers have to ask for the Holy Spirit baptism.
"If you then being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit TO THOSE WHO ASK HIM." Luke 11:13
Sometimes people want to be comforted that they already have the Holy Spirit and shouldn't seek more simply because they feel to lazy to pray and ask God for the baptism.
It is not automatic that when you are baptized in water,you are also baptized in the Holy Spirit, you need to seek for that something more and get it.
There's controversy regarding what the evidence of the Holy Spirit baptism is.
In the bible, all recorded events when people got baptized by the Holy Spirit, they suddenly began to speak in tongues,something they previously could not do.
Here are a few examples, Acts10:45-46,"And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished,as many as came with Peter,because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also .
For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God "
Acts 19:6,"And when Paul had laid hands on them,the Holy Spirit came upon them and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. "
While the bible does not say whether these believers who spoke in tongues at receiving the Holy Spirit,all continued to do so afterwards, the bible says their speaking in tongues when the Holy Spirit came upon them became a sign to those around them.
For example in the passage I quoted earlier, Acts 10:44-6 the bible says the Jews knew that the gentiles had also received the Holy Spirit because "they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God" (verse 46).
The Holy Spirit baptism wasn't simply the tongues,however the tongues became a sign to those they were with of the deeper encounter they had with God.
So baptism of the Holy Spirit isn't speaking in tongues,it is more than speaking in tongues!
The bible says tongues are a sign so that unbelievers can believe the work God has done.
1 Corinthians 14:22" Therefore tongues are for a sign,not to those who believe but to unbelievers……"
The bible also refers to tongues as one of the Spiritual gifts and some verses suggest that not everyone in the early church was speaking with tongues.
1 Corinthians 12:30" Do all have gifts of healings?Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?"
1 Corinthians 14:5" I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied……… "This verse is referring to tongues as a spiritual gift like prophesy,healing, etc.
So while the recorded events of the Holy Spirit baptism all included speaking in tongues,the bible refers to tongues as a Spiritual gift and that some people in the church did not speak in tongues.
The bible however does not say whether these people who were not speaking in tongues had for once spoken in tongues at the initial reception of the Holy Spirit like the other recorded times.
I was taught that tongues are a Spiritual gift and just because you do not speak in tongues does not mean you are not baptized.
I was taught that the Holy Spirit baptism was not an extra event you should seek,that once you receive Jesus you automatically have the Holy Spirit.
This teaching would comfort me,and when preachers defend this,I'd feel good that since I accepted Christ I already had the Holy Spirit and I didn't have to seek for more.
However, I was reading of people's encounters with the Holy Spirit and deep inside I knew I did not have what they had.
I was reading of how these people received the Holy Spirit.
Most of them received the baptism when they decided to go deeper with God.
They got hungry and thirsty for more of God and began seeking Him in prayer,and even fasting and when they encountered God,He baptized them with the Holy Spirit and for all these people I was reading about it wasn't a subtle event you can hardly notice, it was a powerful life changing event.
I also started to read about the Holy Spirit baptism in the bible and I realized it wasn't something that leaves a person in doubt of whether or not they received the Holy Spirit, it was always an event with clear manifestation of God's power,changing the people.
After much study,I realized I did not have the Holy Spirit, but I knew I wanted Him.
I went on a fast,seeking more of God and asking Him to baptise me with His Holy Spirit and with His blazing fire!
On the last day of the fast,just before the closing prayer,my hands were lifted up and I was asking the Lord to fill me with His Spirit when suddenly I began to speak in tongues!
I could sense the heavens open above me and God was pouring His Spirit into me.
No matter how hard I tried to speak in English, I couldn't, all words were just in tongues.
God gave me the interpretation of the tongues right there,I was saying, "no one can win a battle except The Lord wins it for them!" And I was glorifying the Lord in tongues.
After this incident, I went to catchup on a new episode of a soap opera I loved.
I had watched this soap the previous night but that evening when I watched, I could not enjoy it,I could say it was even tormenting to me.I felt like Jesus didn't like it,and after just a few minutes of watching, I couldn't finish it,I went to my bedroom to pray and ask God to forgive me.
From that very moment I had this encounter of the Holy Spirit baptism, I couldn't wear the clothes I comfortably wore before, I couldn't read books I previously read before, I couldn't talk the way I previously talked!
Before I had this encounter, when people tell me about hell and God's judgement, I would get scared and vow not to sin again.
I would try really hard not to sin because I was scared of hell,but this fear would wear off after a day or two and I would find myself sinning without any fear again.
But when I got baptized with the Holy Spirit, it was like I was on a one way street.
It was like I could not look back.I didn't need someone to tell me about hell for me not to sin,even when alone,my desire was to please God not because I was scared of hell but because I loved Jesus and I wanted to please Him.
I got addicted to His presence that I'd find myself praying till its dark.
When am away from home,I would always want to go back quickly just so that I could be able to pray and be with Jesus.
I didn't care what peoples opinion was but Jesus' opinion was always what I wanted.
1. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a very distinct event in the life of a Christian, it is not a subtle event.
If you are baptized by the Holy Spirit you know exactly when it happened and where.
And when you are baptized by the Holy Spirit, you know it.
If you are in doubt,you haven't yet been baptized in the Holy Spirit and you need to ask God for it.
2.The baptism of the Holy Spirit from my personal experience and from scripture DOES include initial speaking in tongues, but is not limited to speaking in tongues.
A lot of people have received the gift of tongues yet they have not been baptized by the Holy Spirit and you can tell this by their lifestyle. The lack of change in lifestyle, their insensitivity to sin.
The Holy Spirit makes you Holy. If you speak in tongues but are not holy,you have not yet received the Holy Spirit baptism, you have only received the gift of tongues.
Does each and every person speak in tongues at the time they are receiving the Holy Spirit? I don't know, the scriptural records are of those who did,however what I do know is that the person who receives the Holy Spirit will know they have received, and they will even know when they received, and their entire life will change.
God can automatically baptize a believer at conversion like the event in Acts 10:44-46, but if this doesn't happen, a person who is filled with the Holy Spirit can lay hands on the person wanting to receive like in Acts 19:6.
Another way a believer can receive the baptism is by asking for it.Luke 11:13.
The Holy Spirit baptism is a promise of God.
And He wants us to receive the Spirit so that we can be empowered to overcome.
Only the Holy Spirit will help us to be holy,if not we will keep struggling with sin.
So if you have not received the Holy Spirit, you will lose nothing by asking God to baptize you,actually you have everything to gain.
God wants to and will give His Holy Spirit to anyone who asks.
Don't be comforted that you already have Him.If you don't know when you received the baptism then you haven't yet.
He is so powerful He can't fill you without you even knowing, you will know.
Its time to go deeper with God because this is the only way you will overcome.
He will overcome the world in you.

    I had same experiences when I received the holy spirit. World became strange to me, I was able to love everyone and the things I disliked…i began to see those things as Lords will and willingly I gave myself to spiritual things. Holy Spirit amazingly changes your life, if you obey it…

    Amen thank you…. and I had a similarly experience not once but twice. Once when the Holy Spirit filled me and once when Christ was formed in me and I received the Spirit of Christ in my actual mind and brain, physically with power. After that Jesus appeared to me from heaven in glory for real and I felt that glory clothe my entire body head to toe again, triple the power as before.

    Jesus said to the disciples back then that FIRST the gospel must be preached to all the world etc etc then the Son of Man will come back — then Jesus said two things people cannot understand. First Jesus said “I tell you that you will not go through all the towns in Israel before the Son of Man comes back. Then Jesus said also to them “This generation will not pass away until ALL of this is finished.”

    Let me tell you something which you should take with joy but you will most likely reject. Jesus and His coming is a personal coming to each person once they get ready and stay ready. Then He comes to that particular person, one on one…. Also when human beings die they are immediately in the realm of the spirit where they will see Jesus Christ — but the actual 2nd coming and rapture are spiritual in nature and are done in secret between Jesus and that particular believe once he/she gets ready and stays read keeping watch … then Jesus comes to that person. Now go please pray about this matter.

    “2.The baptism of the Holy Spirit from my personal experience and from scripture DOES include initial speaking in tongues, but is not limited to speaking in tongues.”….

    ..You have Correctly qouted the Right scripture Siste…#Rachael Mushala……#But still incorrect with the View that IF A PERSON IS BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY GHOST then they have to speak in tongues as evidence….#Not true at all……

    #Speaking in tongues as you hv rightly qouted the verses its a gift of the Holy Ghost…… Nothing more…#Of course as Christians we can seek for this gift as u hv qoted those verses…but if a Person isnt speaking in tongues…it doesnt mean..he has no Holy Spirit….No….no no…

    .And Speaking in Tongue isnt the best and only sign of baptism of the Holy Ghost, as the Devil is also capable of giving people false tongues……

    …..Change in behaviour as u hv rightly put it yourself…Change in Character and attitude….Forsaking sins and worshipping God in truth and Spirit…
    .The person doesnt hv to necessarily speak in tongues tongues…If a Person has accepted Jesus Christ..and repented…immediately is baptized with the Holy Ghost….

    .the person’s body automatically becomes the Holy Spirit’s temple after repentance…

    .Thats the Baptism of the Holy Spirit…Some people speak in tongues..some dont….

    #Thats why Paul in 1 Corinthians in 14 was rebuking those Christians at that church for they thought they were not BABPTIZED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT SPEAKING IN TONGUES.


    And those who spoke in tongues took PRIDE IN IT…Taking themselves as some SPECIAL PEOPLE….HOLY AND CLOSER TO GOD than those who were not gifted with tongue speaking.

    Speaking in tongues is just a gift…some receive it immediately after repentance….others never receive it…their entire life..

    This doesnt mean they have no HOLY SPIRIT AND They will go to HELL …NO NO NO..
    Anyone who says has not been baptized by the Holy means the Holy Spirit is not living inside them
    which translates to
    because if you sincerely repent, start worshipping God in truth and Spirit…the Holy Spirit is already there in You.
    after repentance..God Forgives your sins..The Holy spirit moves into your body…and THIS IS CALLED THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST.

    Because if You sincerely repent…the Holy Spirit makes your body his temple.
    and if you continue worshipping God in truth and Spirit…Your name remains intact in the book of life..
    and you will go to heaven…even if you don’t speak in tongues..

    tongues…as u hv rightly qoted the verses which i wanted to qoute also…were/are a sign for NON-BELIEVERS…

    In the times of apostles…they were many NON BELIEVERS….alot of Judaism …idol worshippers.
    so, many converted people were receiving those gifts every now and then as a sign for non believers and idol worshippers….not all received it though…but most of the new converts did.
    and its not the best or sure way of knowing if you have the holy spirit or not.

    Excellent evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is
    …The Transformation of the Person’s life..
    ..Character change…behaviour change..
    You start hating the Things God hates…like worldly secular movies..Music…

    Like i said before…i havent qouted any verses…because the verses i wanted to qoute are already in Your post.

    Moreover those who are gifted in speaking in tongues they dont always speak in a heavenly languages….as we see this on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2 v 1-7…

    ..#The first day..the Holy Spirit came on Earth..on the believers …they were all speaking in different tongues which were the LANGUAGES OF THOSE PEOPLE OUTSIDE…

    Since speaking in tongues is a sign for non believers and it only Edifies the person speaking unless there is a interpreter or You are speaking a non believers native language e.g in Acts 2 v 1-7…
    (1 Corinthian 14 Paul clears this up…..)

    we see in Acts 2 v 1-7…that peter and his brothers and sisters in christ were speaking Earthly languages…thats why those people were surprised for they knew Peter and his friends as TYPICAL HEBREWs who knew nothing about their languages…

    .#So…speaking in tongues…u can be here in Malawi..Nigeria..or whereever you are …and Speaking in tongues of a language in Israel or Greece…

    You could be speaking latin..or aramaic..or hebrew..or french or any foreign eathly language …just like the Apostles on the day of Pentecost…

    .#Its not always strange heavenly language…#and its just a gift on a few priviledged individuals…


    #And the few priviledged who speak in tongues are not even
    More “Holy” or important or closer to God than the rest..No..No..No….
    (Every born again who doesnt speak in tongues is free to ask for this gift from the Holy Ghost…and its upto to the Holy Ghost to decide to give you or not…we can ask because of John 14 v 13-14…)

    #The only 3 Major things that Move any believer closer to God are …

    1) Cosntant prayers in truth and spirit..
    .2) Regular Fasting..for its adds fuel to Prayer and show the zeal and seriusness of the believer..
    .3) Constant reading of the Bible under the guidance of the Holy Ghost….
    #Nothing surpases these 3…
    For anyone who truly repents is washed by Jesus christ blood…and their name is written in the book of Life in heaven.
    Here on earth..the Holy Moves in Them..and dwell in them…whether THEY SPEAK IN TONGUES OR NOT

    #Other things follow after this…like Evangelism..etc..

    .#Anyone who truly repents is filled with the Holy Spirit and thats what the Scripture call BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

    Hi Phililanie,from what you be written, I think your major argument is that speaking in tongues isn’t the evidence of the Holy Spirit and that a believer can be filled with the Holy Spirit and not speak in tongues.
    I think if you re-read my post all those questions are already answered.
    What I said is that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a separate event from accepting Jesus at salvation.
    The apostles had accepted Jesus and LATER were baptized with the Holy Spirit.
    This is why Jesus said believers could ask for the Holy Spirit.
    Some can get the baptism at conversion, but others get the baptism later.It is an obvious event,that is why all those accounts I quoted in my article are all recorded, it isn’t an event that will go unnoticed.
    I didn’t say anyone not speaking in tongues goes to hell.
    I did clearly say that although in ALL recorded incidences in the bible, speaking in tongues was involved, it doesn’t necessarily mean every person speaking in tongues is baptized with the Holy Spirit. Others just have the gift,but we can’t despite the biblical accounts were speaking in tongues also happened at receiving the baptism.
    But I clearly stated that the real evidence is holiness and change of lifestyle.
    The bible doesn’t say speaking in tongues is unnecessary. It was a sign to unbelievers, but its also a means of your spirit speaking directly to God even without you understanding. Not all tongues are earthly. The bible says some tongues are heavenly. If people are sure they are baptized with the Holy Spirit, that’s great.But there is nothing wrong with speaking in tongues even in this age!Its still important and that’s why God still gives the gift.
    I used to be comforted that the Holy Spirit baptism wasn’t something more you can seek,but when I got out of that comfort zone and began asking God to baptize me with His Spirit, I received what I asked for.For me, It was a significant event, I can take you to the exact place it happened, and I can tell you the time it happened. I completely changed and have never looked back since.and I know God is willing to do that for anyone who asks.

    rachel mushala chisulu – please answer me this question…..So GOD said i must seek him….so tell me…if i repent now and ask for baptism in prayer and fasting….will i find him because like the disciples they had later baptism….so some people told me they were seeking GOD and he started talking to them and aswering their prayer basically GOD revealing himself after 5 years another said 4 years….so my question is if i ask for baptism….can i receive it after some time and still continue seeking GOD or GOD will start talking to me and anseering my prayers the moment i receive the baptism or how does it work…or that lady was just using 5 years as a means to discourage me from seeking GOD
