Baptized with the Holy Spirit

"Prayer is not logical; it is a mysterious moral working of the Holy Spirit" - Oswald Chambers

The word ‘baptized’ means to immerse, to cover, to saturate, and to bury.  To be baptized with the Holy Spirit is to be totally surrounded, saturated, and covered with the Holy Spirit.  A person who is saturated knows they are wet; someone immersed in the Holy Spirit knows it.

John the Baptist said that the Messiah would carry out this baptism.  Following His resurrection, Jesus told His disciples to wait until they had received this gift.

What prayer are you praying as you wait? Is it to be immersed in the Holy Spirit?
