Asked by: Rose Pierre
Hello Rose, What an awesome question and it is one of my favorite topics.
To this I say something simple:
1 Corinthians 12:7 NKJV

Now the bible talks about two different types of baptisms. One baptism is by water and the other is by the Holy Ghost.
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with FIRE:
Water baptism is the immersion of a person into water which signifies righteousness. It is an answer of a clean conscience toward God. This type of baptism is basically the person saying that they desire to be free from sin. That is why Jesus came to John and said He needed to be baptized.
to be baptized with the Holy Ghost? The word baptize still means what it did with water baptism. It means to be immersed. So what Jesus was saying here is that the disciples were going to be immersed in the Holy Ghost. This was promised to happen by Joel.
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
I HOPE and Praye this answer your question...
