Four Steps to Receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your Countenance - Psalm 89:15
Just as Jesus needed the fullness of the Holy Spirit to fulfill the purpose He had been sent forth to accomplish, so we need His ministry in our lives as well. The Holy Spirit has been given to us from the Father to bring us into the fullness of all that God desires for our lives. He searches the deep things that are in the Father's heart and reveals them unto us.

1. Our hearts must be properly prepared through repentance .

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 3:19 "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,

2. There needs to be a real hungering and thirsting for it.

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.

3. There must be a sense of expectation .

Luke 11:9-13 "So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 11 "If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? 12 "Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!"

4. There must be an active response to your faith.

James 2:20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?

James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Notice that it says, "they began to speak... as the Spirit gave them the utterance."

Once you have truly asked to be Baptized in the Holy Spirit, simply open your mouth and begin to speak, but don't speak in any language you know. As you begin to speak the Holy Spirit will give you the utterance.

After you begin to speak a few new sylabbles, keep speaking for at least 15 minutes until your new language becomes fluent. Don't repeat the same sylabbles over and over, but allow God to fill you with a complete new language.
