The primary purpose of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is to bring the personal boldness and power of God’s Spirit into a Christian’s life so that he or she can accomplish Christ’s purposes with his authority.
In Jesus’ ministry He heard what other's didn't hear … and saw what other's didn't see … the Jesus who was so incredibly interruptible … now the Holy Spirit is carrying out the Ministry of Jesus through us and His Power flowing THROUGH US.
We need the miraculous in the church today. Postmodern people are too broken to be fixed through simple human care-giving; they need to be pieced back together through the supernatural healing of Jesus through his body, the church.
2.Ask in Faith – Pray and believe that God will fulfill his promise to baptize you in the Holy Spirit. Do not doubt that you will speak in tongues as the initial physical evidence that you have received God’s gift and expect the ongoing evidence of power to witness.
4.Stay focused – some people do not receive because they are expecting a mystical, uncontrollable experience. The Holy Spirit does not overpower a person’s will. You must cooperate with and invite him into your life.
