The filling with the Holy Spirit, on the other hand, is a process which takes place many times. This infilling, in fact, is needed for the fullness of our walk with God and comes as the believer consistently renews his surrender to Yeshua in faith through prayer. (Eph 5:18-21)
The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a supernatural delegation of power from Heaven intended to equip the believer. It provides abounding power needed for the believer to serve and be a witness at given times, for the expansion of the gospel, for more holiness, more gifts and worship to God. Though not in all cases, a common evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the gift of new tongues which is given by the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:13-14). The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a one-time event which God orchestrates in His mercy to everyone who seeks to be filled with Him with all his heart, in order that he would become a spring of living water. (John 4:14)
That the Holy Spirit dwells in the hearts of all believers and seeks to sanctify them and lead them into all truth. He is our counselor, helper and teacher, our comforter and the advocate of our souls.
God is Spirit and he who wants to truly serve Him has to serve Him in Spirit and in truth. These are the believers our Father in heaven seeks. (John 4:23)
Water baptism or immersion is a one-time event for every believer to experience after he has repented and invited Yeshua to be Lord of his life. Baptism is God’s sealing and an outward expression of our obedience to Him, through which we exhibit outwardly what happened in our hearts. In baptism we identify with the death and resurrection of our Messiah, part with our previous life under the seal of sin. As we exit the water we enter into a new life of righteousness and victory made possible to us through the power of God’s Spirit in our lives. (Rom 6:4)
The new birth is a one-time event which takes place in the life of everyone who believes in his heart and confesses with his mouth that Yeshua is the Lord. The result of the new birth is forgiveness of sin and salvation. (Rom 10:9) In his death on the cross Yeshua fulfilled what was written in the Torah. Hence every human being can obtain God’s righteousness by power of his or her faith in the Messiah. No one can gain righteousness and holiness through keeping the laws of the Torah. Faith is the true goal of the Torah, which is at work in us through the love God poured into our hearts. (Hebrews 11:7; Ro 5:5)
Yeshua, the Messiah, is the way, the truth and the life and that no man can come to the Father but through Him. (John 14:6; Acts 4:12) In other words, there is no salvation, no way into the Kingdom of God, and no eternity with God but through Yeshua.
All men sinned and naturally there is no fear of God in them. The wage of sin is death. God, however, did not want anyone to perish, but for all men to gain eternal life. (Romans 3:23)
Yeshua is the only-begotten son of our Father in Heaven and that God sent Him as redeemer for Israel and for all nations. This was the fulfillment of the promises given to our fathers through the mouths of the prophets. The virgin Miriam of the house of King David became pregnant with the Messiah Yeshua through the power of the Holy Spirit. Yeshua left His glory in Heaven and became man. He was crucified and died for our sins, was buried, but resurrected on the third day. He overcame Satan in order to make us righteous before God. Yeshua ascended into Heaven where He is now seated on the right hand of the Father, clothed with dominion and authority. He came to destroy the works of Satan and He will descend again from Heaven, in the fullness of glory and splendor, in order to establish His Kingdom, which will last for all eternity. (Phil. 2:7-11)
In the God of Israel, the only true and living God. He is all in all, our Father in Heaven; Yeshua, our Messiah, God’s first begotten son; and, God’s Holy Spirit. (Philippians 2: 5-6)
