What it is to be baptize with Holy Spirit, and with fire ?
If water baptism is act of immersing in water, and Baptism
of the Holy Ghost is immersing in the Spirit . Then what is the
baptism with fire? Nothing but “Chaff” putting (immersing)
literally in hell fire.
“ Chaff” are the wicked, and will be baptized in fire (Mk.9: 48,49)
(Not for us, not now but at the end putting wicked to hell fire.)
(Lord the giver of both; but at different times and people)
Purpose of the baptism of the Holy Spirit ?
1 Cor.12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. (To make all believers as one body)
(Not repeated now- but shares when we are added to the church)
If any one offers you baptism of the Holy Ghost, know he is a liar.

(not the key but Keys; and not of the kingdom of God)
