I have always been so fascinated by God's word cause it's so full of mysteries.
In church this morning we studied on the Holy Spirit and it came around to the scripture (Lk 3 vs 16) '...He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire'. That struck a chord and I've been trying to decipher it can someone care to explain?

Fire is one of the forms of the Holy Spirit. If you recall the burning bush that was on fire but not consumed in the old testament which attracted Moses.

That was the Spirit of God right there, and that was why Moses was told to take off his shoes for the ground was a holy ground.

It was what transformed Moses' rod to the rod of God after the rod of Moses touched the floor.

It has the ability to transform anything it touches!

It is the Fire of God!

It's the same Fire that came upon the disciples of Christ on the day of Pentecost didn't consume them but totally transformed their lives.

That Fire was what kept them burning for Christ and His gospel til the day of their deaths.

So that's what it means to be baptized with Fire.

God bless.

Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.

In Jeremiah(5 vs 14) and Jeremiah(23 vs 29), the Word of God is described as being like a fire... that burns in your heart and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces.

In Jeremiah 20 vs 9, the prophet is recorded to have said this of the word of God.

Jeremiah 20 vs 9(ERV)

9. Sometimes I say to myself, “I will forget about him. I will not speak anymore in his name.” But when I say that, his message is like a fire burning inside me! It feels like it is burning deep in my bones! I get tired of trying to hold his message inside. And finally, I am not able to hold it in.

The baptism by fire, I believe refers to the Spirit of Truth(The Word of God or Jesus Christ) living alongside the Spirit of God(The Father) living inside of those who are born of the Spirit of God. Yes, Jesus Christ promised, not one but two Helpers who will live inside of those who accept(trust) and obey His commandments. undecided

It means "Inspiration" (In Spirit Action) Movement of your spirit! Power and Energy in your soul!

All these because you are More Spirit than you know but as taught by your parents, teachers, school, even churches, you think you are skin and bones (flesh) which is not True.

Thus, "He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire" means He Would Give you a New Good and Pure Spirit and Plenty of spirit action (Inspiration)

Hi there.

This is the full quote:

15 Now as the people were in expectation, and all reasoned in their hearts about John, whether he was the Christ or not, 16 John answered, saying to all, “I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 17 His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather the wheat into His barn; but the chaff He will burn with unquenchable fire.”
Luk 3:15 — Luk 3:17 (NKJV)

To be baptized with the Holy Spirit is to be made one with Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9). To be baptized with fire is to be burned up like chaff.

This latter is what will happen to all unbelievers in the Lake of Fire, but it also applies to Armageddon when the Lord Jesus will destroy all those who have the mark of the beast with fire at His Return.

Cheers.
