What is the Baptism in the Holy Spirit?

When we give ourselves to Jesus, the Holy Spirit comes to live within us. The Holy Spirit places us into Jesus. In turn Jesus immerses us in the power of the Holy Spirit, and from the experience comes the ability to reproduce the works of Jesus, including miracles and healings (see John 14:12-16, Acts 1:5,8). Just as there are nine attributes of the fruit of the Spirit, there are nine gifts of the Spirit. Before He ascended into heaven, Jesus said, “John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit” (Acts 1:5). He also said, “You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you: And you shall be witnesses to Me” (Acts 1:8). When the day of Pentecost came, Jesus’ apostles were all together in the same house. There was the sound of a mighty wind, and then tongues of fire sat upon them. They “began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:4).
