TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I want you to be baptized in both water and fire. Water to declare your intentions and fire to declare Mine. Let the fire of My Holy Spirit give you the blueprint to fulfill My plan for your life. I Am well pleased with you.
THE POWER OF BAPTISM
Today, I want to talk to you about baptism. Let’s start out with what it’s not: The power of baptism is not about joining a church. The power of baptism is not about you being saved.
My friends, the power of baptism is in the prophetic act of baptism. The reason people don’t understand the power of baptism as an act of prophecy is because everybody thinks it’s about salvation – that if you’re not baptized, you’re not saved. Praise God Jesus didn’t say that to the thief on the cross.
“Thank you Mr. Thief for professing your faith in me, but you must be baptized before you can enter paradise. Sorry!”
No. I don’t believe that baptism is a salvation issue, I believe that baptism is a victory issue. Baptism is a prophetic act that initiates supernatural victory into your life. The book of Luke records Jesus’ words on the subject:
“But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished!” – Luke 12:50
What does that mean? This is what Jesus was saying, “When I got baptized in the Jordan River, it initiated something that I’m not done with. I have to carry it out.”
Baptism initiates supernatural power, but it’s not over with when you get baptized. Your marriage wasn’t over as soon as the wedding was done. The wedding initiated your marriage. Amen.
Okay, the prophetic act of being baptized initiates a supernatural response from heaven that you get to walk in for the rest of your life. Think about that. Chew on it like the spiritual beef jerky it is and ask the Lord what He wants you to accomplish. He’s given you the power, now He just needs a partner to carry it out.
