Advent Day 8: Baptized in the Anointing Flow

Advent Day 8 Reading: Matthew 3:1-2, 11

 In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the Desert of Judea and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near. I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me will come One who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

John the Baptist came to prepare the way of the Lord, baptizing with water for repentance…………………but Jesus came baptizing with the Holy Spirit and with fire. When we were born again, we received the gift of the Holy Spirit. The presence of the Living, All-Powerful God came to reside within us, but as we all know, in our human state we are leaky vessels and need refilling daily.  When called upon to ignite and empower us anew, Jesus will baptize, immerse and anoint us afresh through the blessed refreshing gift of His presence, upon and within.

During His earthly ministry, He baptized, and today He continues to do the same.  His baptism or anointing can come in many ways. Some of these are through descending upon us during our praise and worship or times of solitude and prayer, or also through the laying on of hands by the saints.  We, His body, are all carriers of that fiery presence, and can impart to one another as we ask and wait upon Him.

The baptism of His Spirit can manifest in our lives in such ways as grace, peace, power and love, depending on our need or request of the moment.  His anointing flows afresh in and through us to minister the gift of salvation, healing, encouragement, wisdom, deliverance, etc.; according to the need of the moment. I personally LOVE to experience a fresh baptism of His anointing flow.  O’ Let Us Come and Adore Him together and receive the anointing flow.       

Let us soak,

oh let us soak,

And receive the anointing flow;

Come Holy Spirit,

O’ Holy Spirit come,

flow anointing flow!

Flow over us,

flow in and through,

Around and on,

up and to;

More of You Spirit,

more of You,

Your anointing flow,

O’ Holy Spirit flow!

Come straight from Heaven,

that liquid power,

O’come today,

O’come this hour;

Come Holy Spirit,

O’ Holy Spirit come,

Flow anointing flow!

More of Your Spirit,

more of You,

We ask for increase,

request and beseech;

As we cry out,

O’Holy Spirit flow.

More of You Spirit,

more of You,

Your anointing flow,

O’Holy Spirit flow!

-Flow, Anointing Flow
