Why You Definitely Need to Receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (If You Haven't Already)

I love the wonderful Holy Spirit, and I hope that you do, too. He is the most amazing person I have ever met. I think having a personal relationship with Him is one of the most incredible adventures we can have in life. When we are walking with the Spirit, He loves to reveal His love to us in new and exciting ways every day.

I had such a profound and powerful encounter when I was baptized with the Holy Spirit when I was 18 years old. I have never been the same. Ever since that day, I have seen thousands of people receive the baptism with the Holy Spirit in numerous ways. Whether it has been at churches praying near the front, in prayer groups or them sitting behind me or beside me in church vans, even at residential treatment foster care facilities or standing outside near the gun ranges, I've witnessed Jesus baptizing His kids in the Holy Spirit.

Whether I've laid hands on people or not, or encouraged people to go home and pray, many report how the Spirit of God filled them up and they spoke in tongues. Acts 2:1-4 shows us the amazing encounter where the Holy Spirit was poured out for the first time. But ever since then, the Spirit is poured out in power for everyone who calls on the name of Jesus (Acts 2:38-39).

The promise is for you and your children. My kids were between the ages of 4 and 6 when they received the Spirit baptism. As I've heard it said before, "There is no junior Holy Spirit." Kids receive the same Holy Spirit you and I do when we are baptized with the Holy Spirit.

And the Holy Spirit is given to you and me without measure. That means we can have as much of Him as we want. How much of the Spirit do you want in your life? I want to be so filled up I am overflowing everywhere I go. And I have been overflowing since I was baptized with the Holy Spirit.

If you need to receive the baptism with the Holy Spirit, my wife and I released a free e-course available on Charisma Courses. We're believing that thousands of people will watch the free e-course, use the downloadable file and receive the baptism with the Holy Spirit. We go through the biblical stories and principles on what the baptism with the Holy Spirit is, sharing how we were baptized with the Spirit and how we've seen others receive the gift that is also for you. And we lead an activation, knowing people will be baptized with the Holy Spirit as Jesus moves in power.

Jesus loves you, and He loves me. And that is why He gives us the promise of the baptism with the Holy Spirit. Please go through the free Baptism with the Holy Spirit E-Course with your friends, or a small group or church group, and share it with others so that they will baptized with the Spirit. The promise is for you, and you will never be the same.
