baptism of fire and water
3 Feb 07
The Baptism of water is the process of immersion of the entire body underwater and removal from immersion that signifies the cleansing of our soul from the sins that we've comitted. And now what do you intend? Arise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord. -- Acts 22:16 This is also the start of our christian life. After the baptism of water comes the baptism of fire. I indeed baptize you with water to repentance, But he who comes after me is mightier than I , whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire; -- Matthew 3:11 Being a christian, we will now face trials and and persecution. These trials signifies our baptism of fire. Because we have to face trial to test our faith prove our worthyness to the Kingdom of God & eternal life. so that the trial of your faith (being much more precious than that of gold that perishes, but being proven through fire) might be found to praise and honor and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, -- 1 Peter 1:7 That's all... May the Lord always guide you in searching for the truth...
