Politics / Re: Nigeria May End Up Borrowing To Pay Salaries – Obasanjo by onatisi(m): 11:35am
MudRaker:


With all honesty, selling our oil is akin to a man selling his birthrights. The industrialized nations require crude not as an energy source alone but for churning out every conceivable finished product. From pharmaceuticals, electronics, fertilizers, and virtually every single product today is dependent on petrochemical products.

We have the market, the means and resources to be self sustainable. Our crude is not supposed to be a worthless forex earner that will end up back in the hands of the west in exchange for goods we ought to be manufacturing.

This business of shale oil is all hogwash. The US stock market is heading for the second worst crash in history in the coming months and the Saudis are pumping more gas into the global and US market to forestall an impending crash of the US economy but it won't work.

Crude prices will remain strong as long as China keeps ramping up their growth rate because most of China's crude export is destined for other non energy use.
okay I agree with all u have said. But the question remains that whose responsiblity is it to turn the nation around into an exporting nation and an industrialised one? I am not blaming gej alone for this please don't misunderstand me but I will blame every single president for this starting from gowon. The mess nigeria is in now wasn't created by gej and even obj never did anything concrete to turn around the nations industries he is shouting about. The textile industry in nigeria is virtually dead and obj couldn't and didn't do anything about it. I think it is the responsibility of governments to determine the path they want their countries to follow. State govts too have a huge share of this blame and it is pathetic when the first and only solution that comes to the brains of state governors when confronted with financial iSsues is to borrow or lend. state governments too can initiate industrilization policies for their states

I live in Kano and all I think of is how I may be going out for a walk and meet my death. If given a fighting chance, i'll take down some Boko boys before I die.
7 of my friends were killed by Boko girl last 3 months here.
It's us who know what Boko haram menace is all about, and are ready to fight.

Then, I come to Nairaland and see my countrymen make silly comments on bomb stories like "how this one take concern me?" and others

And I begin to ask myself, who should be flushed out from Naija first, Boko Haram or these clueless Nigerians who make jokes out of a literarily dying country"
dude what I witnessed in Mubi Adamawa state will remain the most horrible memory I will ever store........... It was just like those war movies we use to watch helicopter bombing people running for their live soldiers throwing and burying their weapons in the bush in ORder to escape. Killing 30 is a good thing but the number of boko-H members is saw with my own eye invading mubi will be more than 3000 carrying AK47 and AA and dozens of toyota hilux with anti aircraft gunner mounted on them................ That is why I did not blame the soldiers who ran for their lives because they only have ruSted AK47 rifles so how do you expect them to fight. a woman who escaped from mubi last week said that dogs and pigs are feeding on thousands of human dead bodies that is an eye witness from mubi, not to talk of Michika, gwoza, BAMA and madagali........... Our government is hiding all these from the Nigerians and the United Nations so as to offer us assistance........ NIGERIA IS AT WAR THOUSANDS ARE BIENG kiLLED both civilians and soldiers , muslims and Christians GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN IS NOT GIVING PEOPLE HOPE ............. WHEN HUMAN RIGHT ACTIVIST START INVESTIGATING THIS THE OTUOKE GOAT IS GOING TO AN INTERNATIONAL PRISON............ ANYBODY THAT SAY GEJ TILL 2019 is a murderer.......

10 Tips to Help you Sell More Cars

Tip #1: Stay Away from Negative Salespeople, Huddles, etc!
Tip #2: Use a Great Greeting!
Tip #3: Do a T.O. (Turn Over)!
Let a manager have a crack at a customer before they leave. They might say just the right words. On an average month, I personally close around 5-10 customers for salespeople who did a T.O. (I do F&I and Manage here...)
Tip #4: Test Drive With your Customer!
Tip #5: Trial Close Your Customer After Test Drive
Tip #6: See Tip # 5!!!!!
Tip #6 For Real: Learn Basic Objection Overcoming
Do not use "If I could would you" because you assume price is the only objection.
See my article on how to handle "I want to think about it."
Tip #7: Do Not Rely on Lot Traffic (Only)
I'm not saying stay away from lot traffic. What I am saying that if it is dead, call some prospects and previous customers. Ask for referrals. Talk to service customers.
Tip #8: Cash is King: Ask for Cash Down
Tip #9: Get people to like you!!!
Tip #10: Sell the sizzle, not the steak.
Sell the excitement of owning your car. Sell the vacation they will take with it. Sell the money they will save. Sell how jealous their friends will be when they see it. Sell how professional they will look at work. Sell how happy they will be.

Politics / Re: Gen. Mohammadu Buhari Releases New Campaign Photos by PapiWata: 10:44am
Ken Saro Wiwa was a writer whose ancestors farmed the land and fished the waters of the Niger Delta for generations BEFORE oil companies laid waste the rich resources of that enormous mangrove swamp. Not long after Saro Wiwa spoke angry words in public gatherings about those from his native Ogoni community that were at the time perceived to have "sold out' to oil exploration companies, Saro Wiwa was arrested by forces loyal to then military tyrant Sanni Abacha, hurriedly "tried" by kangaroo court with no appeal, and then, to the astonishment of the free world, hung by the neck until dead ONLY after repeated botched attempts at his execution.

A loyal disciple of the late and loathed dictator Sanni Abacha, appropriately nick-named "Weeping General Madman Buhari", himself a former military tyrant of particularly brutal antecedents, has, over the decades since Saro Wiwa was tortured to death by military fiat, made a frigging CAREER out of DIRECTLY calling for "bloodshed", during the course national elections in which Buhari ran for president, and was consistently rejected by the Nigerian electorate like the bastard offspring of a 20-naira szex worker with a needle drug habit.

Despite MANY direct threats issued in public gatherings by Weeping General Buhari, to the effect that the penalty for his sustaining another flat rejection by the Nigerian electorate would be a nation rendered "ungovernable" thanks to agents hired by the sore losers at the polls, Buhari, unlike the innocent Ken Sawo Wiwa, has evaded arrest for trial thus far as the year 2014 runs its course, his record as an organizer behind waves of violent crimes against innocent civilians notwithstanding.


The grave injustice done to Ken Saro Wiwa, when viewed in the same light as the REGULAR baying for bloodshed that is attributed to Weeping General Buhari EVERY FFUCKING ELECTION Nigeria EVER HOLDS, illustrates so eloquently the double standard of "justice" that has remained among the more malignant of Nigeria's festering cancerous growths over time, given that this weakened or aloof judiciary APPEARS to turn a blind eye and just whistle a happy tune, whenever the mad man Buhari sees another defeat heading his way, and calls out to his rented mobs of starving angry savages that the time has come to kill political opponents and the innocent, yet again.

The logical last stop for final justice due and owing against many of the worlds rascals and mass killers is of course the International Criminal Court, located conveniently close to Nigeria in The Netherlands. Weeping General Buhari's day in that absolutely impartial court of law WILL come, and when that overdue eventuality does occur, the African continent will be rid of one particularly nasty individual whose most recent pastime has been sponsoring the ongoing terror gang invasion ripping apart Northern Nigeria, even as he puffs up his little bird-chest with boasted declarations of intent to run for president and "RULER" over the entire nation of Nigeria, whether the majority approves of such slavery or not.

Weeping General Buhari, Nigeria's perennial court jester and election loser, is a text-book example of why that esteemed law court exists in Den Haag, Holland, so it is indeed reassuring to expect and anticipate that Weeping General Buhari WILL be brought before the panel of learned and fearless presiding judges at the International Criminal Court, kicking and screaming like the blood-thirsty monkey Buhari remains, if need be.
Politics / Why He Is Not A Politician by maclatunji: 10:40am
Why I Am Not a Politician

Storried/Earl Okezie

maclatunji:

A couple of years back, I think it was around 2001 or 2002, my marriage was still young, children hadn’t started coming, and so everywhere I went that wasn’t work related, I went with my wife. It was really fun because those outings afforded me opportunities to show-off my wife and to know my wife a bit more.

Then my father hadn’t joined his ancestors, and one of such social outings was attending my village and family monthly meetings hosted by father in his small apartment in the Itire area of Lagos – Itire is sandwiched between Lawanson and Ijeshatedo in Surulere area of Lagos.

Those were the years when everywhere you went; people were talking about Nigeria’s nascent democracy because we had just returned to democratic ways in 1999 after being held hostage by the military for over 13 years.

It was fun talking politics with whoever cared enough about politics and what the old, the not-so-old and the new politicians were doing with governance. That’s when the phrase “dividends of democracy crept into our consciousness because there was a deep feeling of angst amongst Nigerians that these politicians weren’t keeping to their electoral promises of giving Nigerians better life.

It was in one of such monthly family meetings in my father’s house, the subject matter of politics crept in to what should’ve been ordinary family discussions. In the course of these heated discussions, one of my uncle’s said something to the effect that I can be in the Lagos talking politics when riff-raffs were occupying political positions and political appointments. In fact, he advised I return to the village and join the political fray.

That made lots of sense to me. Indeed, I began to give serious thoughts to that advice because I knew the riff-raffs he made reference to, and as a community we knew these characters wouldn’t offer our community anything except serve themselves.

These discussions continued over several meetings, and the more we discussed politics, the more my interest heightened. But I didn’t know my wife was watching, reading and monitoring my body language, and didn’t find funny the fact that I was getting convinced to return home to play politics as my people would say.

Then at one of those family meetings, I can’t remember which one now, but I recall my wife doing what I least imagined she could do. She sought the attention of my relations and got it because everyone had known by then that this woman, who agreed to marry their son, isn’t one who ordinarily talks much – at least not in public. I think many of them already had a feeling she deeply cherished her private space.

When she got the attention of the house, she cleared her voice, and apologized for wanting to waste their time with what she wants to say. My relations urged her on.

“My in-laws” she began, “in the last couple of meetings, you people have been goading my husband to return home for politics sake. I cannot stop him. Indeed, if he decides to hearken to your voices, what can I do? But that’s the day our marriage will be over because I cannot marry a politician”. Thank God, she continued, “we don’t have children yet and what will I stand to lose – nothing she stressed for effect”.

When she was done, there was pin-drop silence that seemed to last for eternity.

My uncle, the one who was the chief culprit amongst those urging me to give politics a try – a man known for his courage momentarily lost his power to speak, and when he found it minutes later, he asked my wife why she wouldn’t want me to play politics. After all, man is a political animal and if good men refused to play politics, riff-raffs will have a field day with our lives.

My wife didn’t argue with him. She politely but firmly told my uncle that her husband can’t withstand Nigeria’s brand of politics let alone do the things Nigerian politicians do, and she raised her left hand counting – such as murder, inexplicable nocturnal meetings, oath-taking, lies and deceit, diabolism, intrigues and back-stabs, and on and on she reeled out. She was really prepared.

When she was done, another relation asked her in a rather sarcastic tone, “so madam you don’t want to be first lady.” Sir she retorted, “I’m already first lady in his house, I don’t want anything more.”

At that point, my dad who had been watching and listening intently, cleared his throat to signal a call for a truce, and when he got everyone’s attention thanked my wife for protecting her territory so fiercely and courageously, and then he turned to me looking straight into my eyes, and said, “young man go home with your wife. You’re my son and I know you very well. You can’t do what Nigerian politicians do”.

“She has spoken, and I have spoken, and as he is wont to do, he rubbed it in with a proverb: “the fly that sends its ear on errand, go to the grave with the dead.”

“Leave politics alone. You’ll have enough politics at home”.

Politics / Nigerians In Ghana Prisons Cry Out For Help by lalasticlala(m): 10:39am
His name in Igbo language means “Lord bless me”. But today Chigozie is certainly not feeling blessed as he is one of the numerous Nigerians currently serving various jail terms in Ghanaian prisons.

He was arrested at the airport in Ghana while trying to smuggle Marijuana to Hong Kong and was subsequently sentenced to 15 years imprisonment. Chigozie’s health is said to have deteriorated, allegedly due to the poor condition of the prison. They (inmates) are allegedly denied food and medical attention when sick.

Chigozie and other Nigerians who are languishing in Ghanaian prisons have, therefore, appealed to the Federal Government to repatriate them back to Nigeria to complete their jail terms. He narrated his ordeal to Vanguard Metro, VM on telephone.

“I want to first of all, say that I am truly sorry for engaging in drug trafficking and bringing dishonour to my country, Nigeria. Before I was arrested, I was supplying computer accessories to traders in Ghana.

I later got involved in drug trafficking and was caught with Marijuana at the Airport while attempting to travel to Hong Kong. I was charged to court and sentenced to 15 years imprisonment. I have already served about 12 months and still have 14 years to go.

Presently, I am very sick and need medical care. But the authorities have refused to allow me and other Nigerian prisoners access to medical attention. I don’t want to die in a foreign prison. We are treated like animals and the conditions are terrible. When a Nigeria eventually dies in prison, his relatives are not usually notified,” he said.
Pleads for government intervention

Continuing, he said: “ I am pleading to the Nigeria government to intervene to enable Nigerians who are prisoners in Ghana have access to medical treatment when sick or better still, bring us back to serve our jail terms in Nigeria.

Our families are in the dark, they really don’t know what we are facing. We’ve spent a lot of money trying to appeal in court, but all to no avail.

“ I have witnessed over 100 deaths of Nigerian citizens in Ghanaian prisons and most of their families are not even aware. They still nurse the hope of their return without knowing they are dead and thrown into the bush. We appeal to the government of Nigeria to please act on our behalf and repatriate us back home. We have many Nigerians in all the 46 prisons in Ghana that need the help of the Nigerian government.”

Another prisoner at Nsawam Medium Security Prison, Ghana who insisted on anonymity said: “I’m serving a jail-term of 50 years for narcotics not worth up to one kilogramme. I am presently in my sixth year in jail

Appeal

“We appeal to the Nigerian government to please come to our aid and repatriate us back to Nigerian prisons to serve our remaining sentences. The condition here is very unbearable. We need to reconnect with our families. The Ghanaian police are fond of arresting innocent Nigerians, giving them high sentences of 50, 70 ,100, 150 to 200 years. Most of us have spent eight, 10, 15, 17 and 20 years in prison and some have died without completing their jail terms,” he alleged.

Revenge

“ My prosecutor told me that he is dealing with Nigerians as a revenge for what the Nigerian government did to Ghanaians in 1983 and 1985 when they were deported during the infamous Ghana-Must-Go.”

Pray for us

He appealed to Nigerians to “please continue to pray for us and do what you can to bring us back home”.

His words: “Another sad part is that most of us are on sick bed without drugs and food. We are in prison yet we feed our selves.

This is the hardship Nigerian citizens in all the prisons in Ghana are facing. I have been sick for the past three months and they have not taken me to the hospital or given me any drug. They treat us like animals. They give us only dry garri.
We have no access to communication. I know how I suffered to reach you. Our hopes and the lives of about 800 to 1000 Nigerian prisoners in the 46 prisons in Ghana lies in your hand. Please, help us reach out to the Nigeria government”.

Family / Gen1, Gen2, Inverter And PHCN/NEPA: Now Its Time To Changeover Automatically by electrokristron: 10:34am
If you have two or more power sources available to you in your Home/Office/Church/Mosque/Supermarket etc, then you certainly need an Electrokristron Automatic ChangeOver system to manage your connection to those various power sources (Example: Generator 1, Generator 2, Inverter, Solar System, PHCN/NEPA etc).

ELECTROKRISTRON AUTOMATIC CHANGEOVER UNIT is the way to go for your safe electrical power source interchange and 'blackout management' options both at domestic and industrial levels.

Order one to replace the manual changeover you currently have. It is very safe for your family as it is fully automatic and your wife or children will never have to physically touch or operate a dangerous manual changeover (that might shock them) anymore.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
1. It automatically connects your home/office/factory to your Generator whenever public supply fails
2. It automatically changes from Generator mode to PHCN/NEPA mode when public power supply is restored.
3. It automatically STARTS your Generator when public power supply fails (No need to go out in the rain or dead of night to start your Gen).
4. It automatically turns OFF your Generator as soon as PHCN/NEPA is restored (No need to go out late in the middle of the night to turn off your Gen)
5. It can be used to interchange load between various types of power sources including WIND TURBINE/MILL, INVERTER, SOLAR POWER UNIT, two or more separate GENERATORS, PHCN/NEPA etc.
6. It can be used on small or big 'sound proofed' Generators (MIKANO, Marapco etc), key-start or button-start types
6. Unlike other brands that just switch between Gen and PHCN/NEPA, our brand of automatic changeover acts as an intelligent Robot (When installed with our special ELECTROKRISTRON INVERTER INTERFACE MODULE, EIIM) such that:
(a) It switches to INVERTER mode when PHCN/NEPA fails, allowing your Inverter to run and operate for expected number of hours before starting your Generator automatically thereby saving you running costs on Generator fueling and maintenance.
(b) It Monitors your Inverter batteries continuously to ensure they do not drain beyond a safe preset threshold value typically 10.5Volts per battery.
(c) Immediately Inverter batteries attain the threshold level (at 10.5volts, for instance), ELECTROKRISTRON Automatic Changeover starts your Generator and switches over to GEN mode, allowing your Inverter batteries to start recharging.
(d) As soon as PHCN/NEPA is restored, the changeover unit changes over to PHCN/NEPA and stops your Generator, saving fuel, while your Inverter batteries continue to recharge.
7. You can turn off the feature ('AUTO MODE') that automatically starts your Gen on power outage and put the unit on 'USER MODE' (also known as 'Manual Mode') so that you as the user could start your Gen only when you need it running.
8. You can choose to ALLOW or DISALLOW PHCN/NEPA supply (especially in low voltage situations) through the available front left switch on the unit which serves as a Public Mains Power Isolator switch.
9. 3-in-1 Model also available for three (3) separate power sources changeover operations such as for premises with Generator 1 (SOURCE 1), Generator 2 (SOURCE 2) and Public Mains (SOURCE 3).

ELECTROKRISTRON Automatic Changeover Unit (also known as Electrokristron Automatic Transfer Switch, E-ATS) is very versatile, strong, durable and efficient.

See attached pictures of the unit below.

Available as 3-phase units (Can be used in 1-phase situations too), with 1 year warranty.

Properties / Do You Have 2 Generators And PHCN As Power Sources? Get An Automatic Changeover! by electrokristron: 10:17am
Go for ease and convenience, go for safety and user-friendliness. Go for Electrokristron Automatic Changeover.

ELECTROKRISTRON AUTOMATIC CHANGEOVER UNIT is the way to go for your safe electrical power source interchange and 'Power blackout management' options both at domestic and industrial levels.

Order one to replace the manual changeover you currently have. It is very safe for your family as it is fully automatic and your wife or children will never have to physically touch or operate a dangerous manual changeover (that might shock them) anymore

FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
1. It automatically connects your home/office/factory to your Generator whenever public supply fails
2. It automatically changes from Generator mode to PHCN/NEPA mode when public power supply is restored.
3. It automatically STARTS your Generator when public power supply fails (No need to go out in the rain or dead of night to start your Gen).
4. It automatically turns OFF your Generator as soon as PHCN/NEPA is restored (No need to go out late in the middle of the night to turn off your Gen)
5. It can be used to interchange load between various types of power sources including WIND TURBINE/MILL, INVERTER, SOLAR POWER UNIT, two or more separate GENERATORS, PHCN/NEPA etc.
6. It can be used on small or big 'sound proofed' Generators (MIKANO, Marapco etc), key-start or button-start types
6. Unlike other brands that just switch between Gen and PHCN/NEPA, our brand of automatic changeover acts as an intelligent Robot (When installed with our special ELECTROKRISTRON INVERTER INTERFACE MODULE, EIIM) such that:
(a) It switches to INVERTER mode when PHCN/NEPA fails, allowing your Inverter to run and operate for expected number of hours before starting your Generator automatically thereby saving you running costs on Generator fueling and maintenance.
(b) It Monitors your Inverter batteries continuously to ensure they do not drain beyond a safe preset threshold value typically 10.5Volts per battery.
(c) Immediately Inverter batteries attain the threshold level (at 10.5volts, for instance), ELECTROKRISTRON Automatic Changeover starts your Generator and switches over to GEN mode, allowing your Inverter batteries to start recharging.
(d) As soon as PHCN/NEPA is restored, the changeover unit changes over to PHCN/NEPA and stops your Generator, saving fuel, while your Inverter batteries continue to recharge.
7. You can turn off the feature ('AUTO MODE') that automatically starts your Gen on power outage and put the unit on 'USER MODE' (also known as 'Manual Mode') so that you as the user could start your Gen only when you need it running.
8. You can choose to ALLOW or DISALLOW PHCN/NEPA supply (especially in low voltage situations) through the available front left switch on the unit which serves as a Public Mains Power Isolator switch.
9. 3-in-1 Model also available for three (3) separate power sources changeover operations such as for premises with Generator 1 (SOURCE 1), Generator 2 (SOURCE 2) and Public Mains (SOURCE 3).

ELECTROKRISTRON Automatic Changeover Unit (also known as Electrokristron Automatic Transfer Switch, E-ATS) is very versatile, strong, durable and efficient.

The only reason Atheist radical groups are not as prominent as ISIS, Al Qaeda or Boko Haram is that Atheists are in the minority so the radicals would be very few compared to the general population and would be easily extinguished. And Atheists are cowardly.

That's why the dictators do it for Atheism when they have all the powers of the State at their disposal.

Vox Day notes concerning atheism and mass murder:
“ Apparently it was just an amazing coincidence that every Communist of historical note publicly declared his atheism … .there have been twenty-eight countries in world history that can be confirmed to have been ruled by regimes with avowed atheists at the helm … These twenty-eight historical regimes have been ruled by eighty-nine atheists, of whom more than half have engaged in democidal162 acts of the sort committed by Stalin and Mao
The total body count for the ninety years between 1917 and 2007 is approximately 148 million dead at the bloody hands of fifty-two atheists, three times more than all the human beings killed by war, civil war, and individual crime in the entire twentieth century combined
.
The historical record of collective atheism is thus 182,716 times worse on an annual basis than Christianity’s worst and most infamous misdeed, the Spanish Inquisition. It is not only Stalin and Mao who were so murderously inclined, they were merely the worst of the whole Hell-bound lot. For every Pol Pot whose infamous name is still spoken with horror today, there was a Mengistu, a Bierut, and a Choibalsan, godless men whose names are now forgotten everywhere but in the lands they once ruled with a red hand.
There Is a 58 percent chance that an atheist leader will murder a noticeable percentage of the population over which he rules sufficient evidence that atheism does, in fact, provide a systematic influence to do bad things? If that is not deemed to be conclusive, how about the fact that the average atheist crime against humanity is 18.3 million percent worse than the very worst depredation committed by Christians, even though atheists have had less than one-twentieth the number of opportunities with which to commit them. If one considers the statistically significant size of the historical atheist set and contrasts it with the fact that not one in a thousand religious leaders have committed similarly large-scale atrocities, it is impossible to conclude otherwise, even if we do not yet understand exactly why this should be the case. Once might be an accident, even twice could be coincidence, but fifty-two incidents in ninety years reeks of causation!"

I doubt anyone does anything dangerous in the name of "atheism"...
You can't see an atheist ISIS group because atheism vouches for no position on attitudes towards theists..
Only dictatorships where people have motives to eliminate religions do such e.g nazism or communism.. people then tag "atheism did it" as though atheism is a creed. undecided

The only reason Atheist radical groups are not as prominent as ISIS, Al Qaeda or Boko Haram is that Atheists are in the minority so the radicals would be very few compared to the general population and would be easily extinguished. And Atheists are cowardly.

Religion / Bible Teaching On Holy Spirit Baptism by FreshGreen: 8:57am
Bible Teaching from the ongoing Online Bible Training Course
VOL. 6 - TRUTH ONLINE BIBLE TRAINING COURSE

ACTIVITY 1 - BIBLE TEACHING

BIBLE TEACHING ON THE HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM
Acts 1:8, "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

The baptism of Holy Spirit is very important in our Christian experience; it is a must for us as the Promise of our Father. But this has been seriously confused in Christianity today that we are only pursuing it in wrong direction and with wrong ambitions. For us to get things right, we need to go back to the Bible, the unchanging written scriptures and clarify things. Why are we so confused about the baptism of Holy Spirit today that we are misinterpreting the Bible and almost getting everything wrong? When there is confusion, Satan is in control because God is not the author of confusion; and where confusion exists, there will be misdirection and distraction, which apparently leads to lost of God's purpose for the subjection of confusion.

Many who claim to be baptized with Holy Spirit are actually not; in fact about 80% to 90% people, including church members, workers, church leaders and ministers that profess to be baptized with Holy Spirit are not really, if we base it on the Bible. And many of us who are longing to be baptized with the Holy Spirit are getting it wrong with the purpose and why we want to be baptized with the Holy Spirit.

Holy Spirit baptism is the promise of the Father through Jesus Christ to all His children. Luke 24:49, "Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.” But what we need to understand and clarify is that, there is difference between having the indwelling of Holy Spirit and being baptized with Holy Spirit.


HAVING THE HOLY SPIRIT
When you surrender your life to Jesus Christ and you accept Him as your Lord, and you become born again, the Holy Spirit comes straight into your life; it is the Holy Spirit that actually helps lead us to salvation. It is the Holy Spirit that comes into your life and begins to guide you in your new life in Jesus. Romans 8:14, "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God." After we are saved, we begin to grow in the Spirit as the Holy Spirit helps us to bring forth the fruit of the Spirit. Without Holy Spirit in us, we can't bring forth the fruit of the Spirit, just as it is not possible for a tree to bring forth Orange tree except it is an Orange tree.

The strength of our spiritual lives depends on how we grow in the Spirit, and how we grow in the Spirit depends on how we obey the Holy Spirit by obeying God's Word, though daily prayer, Bible reading and watchfulness. When we pray daily and read our Bible and obey the Word of God, we become stronger in the Spirit and our spiritual lives are solid. What it means is that we can be strong in the Spirit, and yet not baptized with the Holy Spirit. There are several wrong conceptions about the Baptism of Holy Spirit, that is, what is generally believed the baptism of Holy Spirit will do for you, which are not so. Let's see what Holy Spirit at salvation and growing in the Lord does for you before you are baptism with the Holy Spirit:

(1) Being Strong And Fervent On The Lord.You don't need to be baptized with the Holy Spirit before you can be steadfast and growing strong in your Christian life. Many excuse themselves that their spiritual weaknesses, like rising and falling, prayerlesness and lack of strong faith are due to the fact that they have not been baptized with the Holy Spirit. But the truth is that, you don't need to be baptized with the Holy Spirit before you can do all that. What you need to be strong in the Lord and to grow in your Christian life, prayer life, and in the Word of God and faith is genuine salvation and devotion to God.

(2) Making Rapture Or Entering Heaven.Some denominations claim that you must be baptized with the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues before you can make heaven, such teaching is not biblical. What you need to make heaven is genuine salvation and living a sanctified life, that is walking in holiness and growing every day. Hebrews 12:14, "Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord."

(3) Having Power Over Satan, Demons and Evil Power.Some children of God are afraid of demonic and evil power, and they think the reason is because they are not yet baptized with the power and special anointing of Holy Spirit. But that is not so, you don't need to be baptized with the Holy Spirit before you can exercise power and authority over every satanic spirit. In the Book of Luke 10:19, Jesus gave His followers authority over demonic power, and they were not baptized with the Spirit then. Jesus said, "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you." So that implies, the authority over demons is received before the baptism of Spirit, all you need is genuine salvation. Immediately you give your life to Jesus Christ, you have the authority over principalities and powers of Satan and you can exercise the authority.

Ignorance brings bondage, many Christians today are living under the torment of demonic forces, they complain because they are not yet baptized with the Holy Spirit, and what about those who confessed to have been baptized with the Spirit? They say they are not yet specially anointed, so they can't really exercise authority over demonic power. You do not need to be baptized with Holy Spirit or be specially anointed before you can exercise authority over demonic forces or cast them out; all you need is genuine salvation and living your life to please God.

(4) Starting To Work For God And Healing the Sick.Before you can start working for God, preaching and doing God's work, you need not to wait until you are baptized with Holy Spirit, what you need is genuine salvation and growing in the Lord. Jesus sent His disciples out to preach, heal and cast out demons; in fact, it was like mission work, but they were not yet baptized with the Holy Spirit then.

"And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease....And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give." Matthew 10:1, 7, 8.

SO WHY THE BAPTISM OF HOLY SPIRIT?
There is only one major purpose and reason for the baptism Holy Spirit as Jesus Christ our Lord said it. Let's see the words of Jesus Christ in Bible:

Acts 1:8, "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

From this Bible verse, the purpose of Holy Spirit baptism is for service, to witness more effectively; it is for doing God's work more effectively. This means we must have probably started working for God, serving God in His vineyard, and then be baptized with Holy Spirit power for more effectiveness. The Apostles were already witnessing about Jesus Christ, preaching, teaching, healing and casting our demons; then they needed the baptism of Holy Spirit for more effectiveness.

HOW TO BE BAPTIZED
To be baptized with the Holy Spirit, we must first be saved, living to please God by obeying the Holy Spirit, working for God, and then ask God for the baptism of Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ, that is, in Jesus name. If you are saved but you are not serving God and working for Him, what do you want God to empower for more effectiveness? If you are not living a sanctified life in holiness and pleasing God, you first need to rededicate your life to Jesus, and be fruitful in the Spirit. If you don't have concern or passion for God's work, you need to first work on that and be filled with God's love for God's work, and then you pray for the baptism of Holy Spirit.

So to be baptized by the Holy Spirit can be summed up in three points:

1, Dedicate yourself to Jesus. Genuine salvation, living a consistent godly life in pleasing God, praying daily and reading God's Word with watchfulness.

2, Devote yourself to God's work. Preaching and doing the work of evangelism. You must have passion for God's work before you can be empowered by the baptism of Holy Spirit to do more.

3, Desire the Baptism of Holy Spirit by asking, keeping asking until you receive, and keep doing God's work while asking. The baptism of Holy Spirit is God's Promise, so yours is to ask and wait faithfully till you receive it; you need not to bother yourself on when exactly to receive it.

Note: Though, usually, we must first be saved, living to please God and serving God before receiving the baptism of Holy Spirit, there are some unusual cases where God baptizes people even from the moment of their conversion, like the case of Cornelius and his group. Acts 10:44 - 46.

EVIDENCE OF HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM
Here is where many are missing everything about the real baptism of Holy Spirit. Let's read again from the Bible

Luke 24:49, "Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”

Acts 1:8, "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Many Christians claim and even preach that the evidence of the baptism of Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues, but that is not so, not even biblical; that is where many are missing it. From these two Bible passages we read above, the only evidence of Baptism of Holy Spirit is POWER. Jesus said, "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you." Acts 1:8. That is the only evidence of the baptism of Holy Spirit. Since we already have Holy Spirit when we are saved, the baptism in it is the enduement of power, that is the purpose of Holy Spirit baptism - to be endued with Power. Luke 24:49, "but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high."

Speaking in tongues is a sign of the baptism of Holy Spirit, not the evidence. Mark 16:17, "And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues." The sign is not as important as the evidence. If you think you are baptized with the Holy Spirit without the enduement of power from on high, you only have sign that you are close to the real thing, and not yet have it. If you are speaking in tongues without being endued by the power of Holy Spirit, being manifested in your ministrations, it means you don't have the baptism of Holy Spirit yet. If a Christian claims to be baptized with the Holy Spirit, simply because he speaks in tongue but with no power from on high that makes the difference, it means the person just bypassed not baptized. How will you be baptized with the Holy Spirit and your life and ministration is void of the power of God unto salvation?

You can fluently speak in tongues without the baptism of Holy Spirit, but it is not possible to be baptized with Holy Spirit without enduement of power from on high. So, is it possible to be baptized with Holy Spirit without the expected speaking in tongues? It may be possible. There is difference between speaking with tongues of angel, saying what no man understands except by the interpretation of Spirit, and speaking with new tongue of another people's language.

When the Apostles were baptized in Acts 2, they were speaking new tongues of other countries' languages, so people from the countries understood the speaking. Acts 2:1-6, "When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven. 6 And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language."

But Apostle Paul mentioned other speaking in tongues which no man understands except by the gift of interpretation of tongues. 1 Corinthians 14:2, "For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries."

Today, when most believers speak in tongue, the genuine speaking in tongues, they say things that no man understands as Apostle Paul said it, and that is one of the gifts of Holy Spirit; likewise speaking strange language of another tribe by the utterance of Holy Spirit is also a gift. I read about D. L Moody who was enraptured with the Joy of the Lord when he was baptized by the Holy Spirit, probably without speaking in tongues. So, when we are baptized with the Holy Spirit, there must be a strange sign like speaking in tongues or others, but there must be evidence of the enduement of the Power from on high.

POWER FOR WHAT?
How will you know if you are endued with power? Is it by doing more miracles? Not really, doing miracles is also one of gifts which everybody may not have, but the evidential power of the baptism of the Holy Spirit is for powerful witness about Jesus, by strong boldness, utterance for preaching which cannot be resisted by sinners, and winning souls into God's kingdom more than before. After the Apostles were baptized with the power of Holy Spirit, they were winning souls in thousands. So when you are baptized with power from on high, you will experience more soul winning in your ministration more than before, the believers will experience more edification in your ministration more than before and you will be imparted with at least a gift of Holy Spirit where you may specialize to minister. If you are baptized with power of Holy Spirit, you will win souls now and then in your ministry, the souls will remain; you will also be empowered to edify the believers. The end result of the baptism of Holy Spirit is soul winning and edification of saints by the utterance of Holy Spirit.

We must all desire to be baptized with the Holy Spirit and to be filled daily with the Holy Spirit. When we are baptized with the Holy Spirit, the evidence is enduement of power from on high which will be evidential in our prayers and ministrations.Have you been genuinely saved? Have you been serving God? Then seek for the Bible baptism of the Holy Spirit with power from on high. Do not worry that you have not receive it, but wait until you receive it.

Acts 1:8, "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

PRAYER
Pray for what you need first: Salvation, restoration, or love and passion for the work of God.

Ask God to baptize you with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of the Holy Spirit.

Keep asking until you receive, most importantly is to keep living holy and keep working for God.
