Do you ever wonder why John the baptism prophesied that the one who comes, after me, is much greater than me, who will baptize you with the spirit.
Here, you can see clearly that even the John Baptism also acknowledged and recognized that He is very much greater than him.
The truth reveals to me that He, who is the Lord, is alive since the day since we were created. One of the criminals, who was prosecuted on the cross, next to Him was also baptized by Him, either the day before he was born. It is because, Our Lord is with the Father. Alternatively, he was baptized by the Lord Jesus Christ, because He is already with the God at that time. Do not forget that Our Lord Jesus Christ is the one who can baptize anyone with the spirit, and not through the water either from sprinkle or sub-merge into the water as the ways we normally understand, is much greater than anyone on earth.
Similarly, it is not surprising that our Lord Jesus Christ can able to baptize anyone with the spirit even till to-date and forever because He is still alive, despite the fact that many people have seen that He already died as a man, but never forget the truth that He was resurrected by the Heavenly Father. Therefore, let us no in doubt that He is still alive and able to do so forever and ever. Trust, by now, you are convicted and convinced to this fundamental truth.
Let us be very clear on these issue, and serve Him mightily and do not debate this issue any longer and save the time from entering into unnecessary debate. Let us be born again so that we can see the kingdom of God, exactly described in John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Let us pray to Him and ask Him to reveal even to you if you have other interpretation than the above.
See you again, let us sharpen each other so as to use the rest of our life to serve Him mightily because God has done so much for us, despite our rebellion against Him, exactly reflected in John 3:16. “For God so love the world that He gave His only and begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not be perished but have everlasting life.
His obedient servant,
