Many people get confused and mix things up when it comes to baptism. They believe that they have the Holy Spirit just because one day they were baptized in water.
Water baptism is like a spiritual burial. When we all come to Jesus, we come like that woman who was caught in adultery. Nowadays people are caught lying, in adultery, in prostitution, on drugs and so on. This lady was caught in adultery, so she came before Jesus dirty… spiritually speaking. We all come dirty before Jesus.
When we give our lives to Jesus, we need to be baptized in waters for us to bury our past and receive a new life. However, if you do not receive the Holy Spirit you will end up going back into your old mistakes, and you will go back into your old sins. You will fall back and will end up doing worse things than before.
The 21 day Fast of Daniel is for those who want to be with God not just for a day or two, but for the rest of their lives. It’s for those who realize that they need the Holy Spirit.
“for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Acts 1:5
When God gives His Spirit, He is taking care of us.
May the God of the Bible bless all of you!
