  • 1) to dip repeatedly, to immerse, to submerge (of vessels sunk) 2) to cleanse by dipping or submerging, to wash, to make clean with water, to wash one&apos;s self, bathe 3) to overwhelm The clearest example that shows the meaning of baptizo is a text from the Greek poet and physician Nicander, who lived about 200 B.C. It is a recipe for making pickles and is helpful because it uses both words. Nicander says that in order to make a pickle, the vegetable should first be &apos;dipped&apos; ( baptô ) into boiling water and then &apos;baptised&apos; ( baptizô ) in the vinegar solution. Both verbs concern the immersing of vegetables in a solution. But the first is temporary. The second, the act of baptising the vegetable, produces a permanent change.

  • Paul nowhere speaks of a second or subsequent Baptism of the Holy Spirit but his consistent message was the unity of the believers as the Body of Christ.
  • The word prophecy means to “prophesy, to be a prophet, speak forth by divine inspirations, to predict.” But what is Paul telling us to Prophesy? Isn’t it love so that the church would grow in that aspect of the Father’s love, through mission of the Son, under the power of the Spirit?
  • For Paul the battle against Satan was normative; it didn’t require explanation but needed to be addressed merely as a constant battle.

    8. 8. Paul’s Understanding <ul><li>The one “beginning” in the Spirit for all – “would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? Have you suffered so much for nothing—if it really was for nothing? Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard?” (Galatians 3:2-5) </li></ul><ul><li>The one “body” life in the Spirit for all – “ For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body--whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free--and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. ” (1 Corinthians 12:13) </li></ul><ul><li>The one “mark” of the Spirit for all – “And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit. who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession ” (Ephesians 1:13) </li></ul><ul><li>The one “sonship” in the Spirit for all - “But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons. Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, &quot;Abba, Father.” (Galatians 4:4-6) </li></ul>
    9. 9. Paul on the Body of Christ <ul><li>Our membership – “for we are members of his body.” (Ephesians 5:30) </li></ul><ul><li>Our many parts – “The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.” (1 Cor 12:12) </li></ul><ul><li>Our joining – “…and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” (1 Cor 1:10) </li></ul><ul><li>Our call to acceptance – “ Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.” (Romans 15:7) </li></ul><ul><li>Our different tasks – “ Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,” (Romans 12:4) </li></ul><ul><li>Our different gifts – “ There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit.” (1 Cor 12:4) </li></ul><ul><li>Our share of labor - from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:16 - NKJV) </li></ul>
    10. 10. Paul on Our Gifts <ul><li>Read 1 Corinthians 12 </li></ul><ul><li>We must learn about our gifts – “ Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant.” (12:1) </li></ul><ul><li>We have the Spirit who is our greatest gift – “and no one can say, &quot;Jesus is Lord,&quot; except by the Holy Spirit.” (12:3) </li></ul><ul><li>We have different kinds of gifts – “ There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit.” (12:4) </li></ul><ul><li>We have purposeful gifts – “ Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.” (12:7) </li></ul><ul><li>We have Holy Spirit selected gifts – “All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines.” (12:11) </li></ul><ul><li>We have appointed roles to use our gifts - “But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.” (12:18) </li></ul><ul><li>We have a most excellent way to express our gifts – But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way.” (12:32) </li></ul>
    11. 11. Paul on Tongues <ul><li>Read 1 Corinthians 14 </li></ul><ul><li>They are not our primary gift – “Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.” (14:1) </li></ul><ul><li>They are directed toward God , not man – “ For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God.” (14:2) </li></ul><ul><li>They are for self rather than corporate expression - “He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy.” (14:4-5a) </li></ul><ul><li>They need to be interpreted in a corporate setting – “For this reason anyone who speaks in a tongue should pray that he may interpret what he says.” (14:13) </li></ul><ul><li>They were normative in Paul’s life – “ I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you.” (14:18) </li></ul><ul><li>They are not an evangelism tool - “Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers but for unbelievers; prophecy, however, is for believers, not for unbelievers.” (14:22) </li></ul><ul><li>They are permissible – “ and do not forbid speaking in tongues.” (14:39) </li></ul>
    12. 12. Paul on the Spiritual Warfare <ul><li>Read 2 Corinthians 10:1-5; Ephesians 6:10-18 </li></ul><ul><li>We must be prepared for the battle – “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil…” (Ephesians 6:12) </li></ul><ul><li>We do not live by the world’s standards – “ I beg you that when I come I may not have to be as bold as I expect to be toward some people who think that we live by the standards of this world.” (2 Cor 10:2) </li></ul><ul><li>We battle on different terms – “ For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.” (2 Cor 10:3) </li></ul><ul><li>We have more powerful weapons - The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. (2 Cor 10:4) </li></ul><ul><li>We need God’s truth as our only weapon – “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. ” (2 Cor 10:5) </li></ul><ul><li>We have an arsenal of weaponry – “ …put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground…” (Eph 6:13) </li></ul><ul><li>We have the ultimate weapon – “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.” (Ephesians 6:18) </li></ul>
    13. 13. Paul on Christ <ul><li>“… Christ is…” </li></ul><ul><li>End of the law – “ Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.” (Romans 10:21) </li></ul><ul><li>God’s - “ And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.” (1 Cor 3:23) </li></ul><ul><li>Our Leader – “But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” (1 Cor 11:3) </li></ul><ul><li>Veiled to the unbeliever – “But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away.” (2 Cor 3:14) </li></ul><ul><li>Powerful among us – “ since you are demanding proof that Christ is speaking through me. He is not weak in dealing with you, but is powerful among you. (2 Cor 13:3) </li></ul><ul><li>Being formed in us – “My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you” (Galatians 4:19) </li></ul><ul><li>Head of the Church – “For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.” (Ephesians 5:23) </li></ul>
    14. 14. Paul on Christ <ul><li>“… Christ is…” </li></ul><ul><li>To be preached – “But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.” (Philippians 1:18) </li></ul><ul><li>Will be confessed by all – “and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:11) </li></ul><ul><li>Seated at the Right Hand – “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.” (Colossians 3:1) </li></ul><ul><li>All and in all – “ Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.” (Colossians 3:11) </li></ul>
    15. 15. Paul with Christ <ul><li>“… with Christ…” </li></ul><ul><li>We are alive with Christ – “Now if we died with Christ , we believe that we will also live with him.” ( Romans 6:8) </li></ul><ul><li>We are co-heirs with Christ – “ Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ , if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” (Romans 8:17) </li></ul><ul><li>We are crucified with Christ – “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20) </li></ul><ul><li>We are clothed with Christ – “ for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ .” (Galatians 3:27) </li></ul><ul><li>We are seated with Christ – “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,” (Ephesians 2:6) </li></ul><ul><li>We yearn to be with Christ – “ I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;” (Philippians 1:23) </li></ul><ul><li>We have been raised with Christ – “ Since, then, you have been raised with Christ , set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.” (Colossians 3:1) </li></ul>
    16. 16. Paul on Grace <ul><li>for obedience – “Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name,” ( Romans 1:5) </li></ul><ul><li>for justification - “ being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:24) </li></ul><ul><li>for faith – “ Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all” (Romans 4:16) </li></ul><ul><li>for access “through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Romans 5:2) </li></ul><ul><li>for increase – “But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many” (Romans 5:15) </li></ul><ul><li>for reigning – “ For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:17) </li></ul><ul><li>for forgiveness “ Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more” (Romans 5:20) </li></ul>
    17. 17. The Spirit as the Renewed Presence <ul><li>In a New Covenant: </li></ul><ul><li>OT: &quot;The time is coming,&quot; declares the LORD, &quot;when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.” (Jeremiah 31:31) </li></ul><ul><li>Paul: “In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, &quot;This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” (1 Cor 11:25, see also Luke 22:20) </li></ul><ul><li>In a new “spirit”: </li></ul><ul><li>OT: “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10) </li></ul><ul><li>Paul: “For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.” (Romans 8:3-4) </li></ul><ul><li>In a new “heart”: </li></ul><ul><li>OT: “ I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” (Ezekiel 36:26) </li></ul><ul><li>Paul: “ Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come” (2 Corinthians 5:17) </li></ul>
    18. 18. The Spirit as the Renewed Presence <ul><li>In a new “wholeness” </li></ul><ul><li>OT: “Then he said to me, &quot;Prophesy to these bones and say to them, 'Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!” (Ezekiel 37:4) </li></ul><ul><li>Paul: “For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit.” (1 Thes 4:7-8) </li></ul><ul><li>In a new “walk” </li></ul><ul><li>OT: “God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.” (Psalm 53:2) </li></ul><ul><li>Paul: “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1) </li></ul><ul><li>In a new “dwelling place” </li></ul><ul><li>OT: &quot;But will God really dwell on earth? The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built!” (1 Kings 8:27) </li></ul><ul><li>Paul: “And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.” (Ephesians 2:22) </li></ul>
    19. 19. The Spirit as the Renewed Presence <ul><li>In a new “temple” </li></ul><ul><li>OT: “I have indeed built a magnificent temple for you, a place for you to dwell forever.” (1 Kings 8:13) Paul: “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?” (1 Corinthians 6:19) </li></ul>
