TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I love prophetic acts. When you are unashamed to pursue My love and power in creative ways, I take notice. I celebrate. Bring a smile to My face and dive into the prophetic. It’s the deeper waters in which My Spirit can be found.
EACH AND EVERY TIME
So many people don’t understand this: You only need to get saved once. Once you’re in the Lamb’s Book of Life, you’re in. That ain’t baptism. I don’t care if you get baptized a hundred times. It’s up to you.
“Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea.” – 1 Corinthians 10:1-2
If you want to know what baptism is all about, this is what baptism is all about: You’ve been a slave and how you’re free. Yes, baptism is about you being a slave to something and God giving you the grace to walk away from that thing and into freedom.
The children of Israel were slaves and one day their deliverer showed up. Because they applied the blood of the Passover lamb they were saved. Remember this: the saving part happened at Passover.
They leave Egypt but when they get to the ocean, the same devils that owned them before chased them saying, “Who do you think you are? Where do you think you’re going? I own you.” It was then that the Red Sea parted and they went down into the water.
The evil dictator and the devils that had always owned them chased them into the water. The Israelites came up out of the water and the devil – the Egyptians – remained. That’s what baptism is all about. Amen.
What owns you? Addiction, anger, adultery? Are you plagued by fear, finances or failure? Take those devils in the water and come up free on the other side and know this: you can do this as many times as you like! The Bible doesn’t have a limit on the number of times you can declare freedom from what’s enslaving you.
God loves a prophetic act and that’s what baptism is – a prophetic act you can do as many times as you want and God smiles on that, He honors that. Saved and need freedom? Baptism is for you each and every time you need it.
