THE SPIRIT BAPTISM: HOW TO RECEIVE!
John 7:37-39 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, from within him shall flow rivers of living water. 39 But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believed on him were to receive: for the Spirit was not yet given; because Jesus was not yet glorified.

v38 confirms v37 that ANY MAN of every race and generation from the beginning of the fulfillment of this prophecy can experience the RIVERS OF LIVING WATER - Mat 3:11; John 14:12; Acts 2:38-39.

HE THAT BELIEVETH shows that the promise is for every man, as much as it does in Mark 16:16; John 3:18; 12:44; 14:12; 1John 5:5,10.

  • 4. BELIEVE ON ME AS THE SCRIPTURE HATH SAID v38 - this means to believe in and obey to the letter the whole Gospel program -- John 14:12-15; Mt 28:20; Mk 16:15-20; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 5:32.
