You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. Now if any man does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. Romans 8:9 MEV
The rawness and depth of this verse is clear. The fear it brings to the person who meditates on it will either lead them to humble themselves and acknowledge that they are not true Christians (born of the spirit, God’s legitimate child), but just believers (born of the flesh); or lead them to be in denial, proud, believe that they are the exception to the word of God and even lead them to question the validity of this verse.
The baptism in the Holy Spirit = A seal on our spirit as if to say to the Angels, the demons and all humans, “This one is Mine! He/She belong to Me.” Now the only being that can remove this seal is the person (which would be very silly and irrational).
I give them eternal life. They shall never perish, nor shall anyone snatch them from My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them from My Father’s hand. John 10:28-29 MEV
Once this happens, the Spirit of God possesses the person, they will already have one foot in heaven. God leave them on earth as long as He has a plan for them to fulfill, but the are already His.
EVERYONE needs to seek this baptism as a guarantee of their salvation! It should not be an option, an extra or desert. Don’t fall for the demonic mentality of, “it would be nice to be baptized in the Holy Spirit, but if not, that’s fine.” Honestly, in the world we currently live in, SERIOUSLY, why take the risk of striving for salvation with your own strength?
The Holy Spirit was promised and given to ALL those who believe & seek it with all their strength, mind and desire.
Note – The Lord Jesus Himself did nothing until He received the Holy Spirit and did not allow Him disciples o leave Jerusalem until the received the Holy Spirit; the Holy Spirit is essential if we are to remain saved and do the work of God in Gods’ way.
I pray you heard God’s voice and will act upon His guidance, in Jesus name.
