He was baptized by the Holy Ghost (Spirit) when he was baptized. Lk 3:22. The Holy Spirit didn't come down until after Jesus was crucified, then he sent the Holy Spirit/comforter down to us. Jn 16:7. A person can be filled with the Holy Ghost (Spirit) and not be baptized by it.

#2The first spiritual birth (When God crated man and breathed the Spirit in his nostrils) died through Adam but, through God's mercy we may be re-born in the Spirit through the Son.So you see Christ had to be born of the Spirit.The Father and the Spirit dwelled with Him while He was on Earth.
---Ryan on 11/30/06

#1God the Father, God the Son & God the Holy Spirit are the same.They are one. They dwell within each other.When Adam transgressed God's law Adam, & hummanity along with him, truly died in spirit.Man is subject & born in the flesh because man's spiritual connection to God is dead, hence our necessity to be re-born in the spirit through Christ.
---Ryan on 11/30/06

Helen 5378- You are correct that Jesus wasnt a sinner. But he was filled with the Holy Spirit. Luke 4:1 Jesus was anointed with the H.S. so he could be led by the H.S. as he was predestined, and that after he had taken on all our sins he could give up the H.S. as he did on the cross, so the (Comforter) H.S. could come unto us. John 14:16-18
---ShawnM.T. on 11/29/06

Yes! Jesus did received the H.Spirit when he was baptized by John (Matt.3:16-17; Luke 4:1)
---Shawn.M.T. on 11/29/06

mima, The Word doesn't say Jesus spoke in tongues(so I don't believe He did, or had to, for the reason I posted below). I am non-denominational BTW, I'm sure many other's here are of various denominations. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 11/28/06

I am on Helen's side. But I admit that you pentecoastals. Got me to go back and read when John 32:33 very carefully and very slowly.Jesus baptized WITH the Holy Ghost He himself had no need to be baptized with the Holy Ghost. And tongues came after His resurrection after He took up residence in each individual believer. And it is for a sign to the unbelievers. But Jesus Christ himself never spoke in tongues. But praise His holy name He understands tone very well.
---mima on 11/28/06

Helen; How do you know that Jesus didn't speak in tongues? In Mt 3:11 John was talking about Jesus coming to baptize in the Holy Ghost and with fire. Jesus had to be baptized first befere we could. Because he is the Holy Ghost, and John said here comes one mighter than I that will baptize you with the Holy ghost and with fire. Read John 1:32-33 It says that Jesus was baptized by the Holy Ghost.
---Rebecca_D on 11/28/06

Helen. Please quote the Scripture that tells us that Jesus never spoke in tongues. He did a lot of things that aren't written so maybe you should word your statements a little more carefully. Tongues were given after his ascension and the Spirit is even now making intercession for us with words that cannot be uttered.
---john on 11/28/06

These things we can say with authority:

Jesus was anointed by the Holy Spirit for that is what he claimed for himself. Luke 4:18, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me..."

He was led (Matt 4:1) and empowered (Matt 12:28, Acts 1:2) by the Holy Spirit to do the Father's will (John 5:30)

He was full of the Holy Ghost (Luke 4:1)
---Bruce5656 on 11/28/06

Being full of the Holy Ghost and being baptized in the Holy Ghost means HE dwells IN a individual.John the Baptist was full of the Holy Ghost in His mother's womb.God chose "tongues" to be the FIRST evidence for Christian's that the Holy Ghost has come IN to dwell inside of that person. There are evidences that the Holy Spirit is "with someone"(striving with them),But as far as the Holy Spirit DWELLING IN someone,God chose tongues to signify that,starting at Pentecost.God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 11/28/06

Rebecca & Morgan - Jesus was not baptised in the Holy Spirit. He was water baptised. If He had been baptised in the Spirit then He would have spoken in tongues, which He did not. He was annointed by the Holy Spirit for His earthly ministry as per the Old Testament.
---Helen_5378 on 11/27/06

Bruce5656 - What I meant was that Jesus did not have the Holy Spirit the same way we do. Jesus was not a sinner so the Holy Spirit did not take up residence in Him as He does with us. The Holy Spirit annointed Jesus for His earthly ministry. If I am wrong, please correct me - I am learning.
---Helen_5378 on 11/27/06

Jesus' baptism did not perfect him, for he already was perfect even before he put on flesh; that is why John was astonished that the perfect one would come to him for a baptism, when it should be the other way around that John himself needed baptism by Jesus. People are baptized into Jesus' Name, in his own name, for he is the head and therefore he himself baptized no one. Jesus was never undone prior to his baptism, else he would not have been God. He was, is, and always will be perfect.
---Eloy on 11/27/06

He already had the Holy Ghost, but He became filled witht the Holy Ghost at His baptism, I reckon...
---Okebartam on 11/27/06

(I.)Jesus WAS baptized in the Holy Ghost when the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove settled on Him, John witnessed that. Jesus came down to earth being very man and very God at the same time. Jesus is not only our Lord and savior, but our EXAMPLE too! Jesus didn't need tongues to signify that He was baptized in the Holy Ghost, but we do.
---Mrs._Morgan on 11/27/06

(II.)The first initial sign that a child of God is baptized in the Holy Ghost is when Holy Spirit speaks through them in a different language. As I mentioned in another blog, there is a difference in the Holy Spirit being WITH someone and the Holy Spirit actually "baptizing them", The Word is clear on this, but as usual many Christian's refute that. Gods Redeemed must follow in their Lords footsteps, and be BAPTIZED in the good Holy Ghost. (Acts 19:2,6) . God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 11/27/06

Helen; You said that Jesus was never baptised by the Holy Ghost? Why did John say here comes one mighter than I whom will baptise you in the Holy Ghost and with fire? The Holy Ghost is only for sinners? Not so. The bible says the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form as a dove upon him. Meaning he was baptised in the Holy Ghost. What bible do you read?
---Rebecca_D on 11/27/06

Lily - Jesus Christ is never known as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. The Father is the Father. The Holy Spirit is the Holy Spirit. Three separate persons together as one God. The Father sent the Son, and the Son sent the Holy Spirit.
---Helen_5378 on 11/27/06

The display of heavenly Power at Jesus's Baptism is to show ONEness agreeability in the Blessed Trinity without having to explain to humanity & revealing Gods eternal omnipotent Mystery.Eloy do not get het up, try to understand Jesus's conception as Man,was a divine anomaly(for want of a better word)HE was God & yet man the descending of the dove & the voice show ONENESS.

You are correct. Jesus did what he did as a man led by the Holy Spirit. Specific examples such as Acts 1:2, "...that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles " Or Luke 4:1 "And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost ...led by the Spirit...into the wilderness," illustrate this.
---Bruce5656 on 11/27/06

He made it clear in his applying Isaiah's words to himself. Luke 4:18-22, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me...anointed me to preach...sent me to preach deliverance...and recovering of sight...set at liberty...preach the acceptable year of the Lord...This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."
---Bruce5656 on 11/27/06

re: The statement you made about Jesus never having the Holy Spirit. I would not put it just that way but but I understand what you were trying to say. Obviously Ryan did not.
---Bruce5656 on 11/27/06

Sam - Yes, the Holy Spirit annointed Jesus for service as in the Old Testament. That is when the Holy Spirit descended on Him like a dove.

Ryan - What are you on about? Are you upset that I am on top of the voting? There is much more to being on CNet than the Blogs.
---Helen_5378 on 11/27/06

Ryan - Obviously you do not understand the differences between the Old and the New Covenants. Jesus was living and operating under the Old Covenant because He had not yet gone to the Cross. The Holy Spirit in the Old Testament would come upon believers and annoint them for service, then He would leave. John 7:39 clearly says that "the Holy Spirit was not yet given because Jesus was not glorified".
---Helen_5378 on 11/27/06

Ryan - Just read your blogs again. Obviously you have a problem and you need to deal with it.
---Helen_5378 on 11/27/06

Jesus did not become God in the flesh at 30 years of age. God is eternal, from everlasting to everlasting, and Jesus existed even before he himself created the heavens and the earth. Please read Genesis 1:26; Psalm 45:6; Isaiah 43:11; Matthew 1:18; 22:41-46; John 1:1-3,14; 8:57,58; 17:5; I John 5:20; Jude 25.

Jesus came of the Holy Ghost, he is God, and God has no sin. Jesus was born of the Holy Ghost, not of the unholy. "for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. Forasmuch as you all know that you all were not redeemed with corruptible things, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. Here the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world." Matthew 1:20; John 8:46,47; I Peter 1:18,19; John 1:29.
---Eloy on 11/27/06 John 1:1,2,3,In the begining was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Note how the name Christ and Holy Spirit was never mentioned here? Why? The same was in the begining with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made. Note also: there was only one Divine being here. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Begining and the End. Christ is this Divine Being. He called Himself Father, Son and Holy Ghost, The I Am..the Trinity.
---lily on 11/27/06

No he did not recieve the holy spirit, since Jesus is God the holy spirit is always with him. The only thing that happened at the baptism was that the Triune God was first revield to humankind. If you disagree then why did Jesus have knowledge of who he was when he was at the temple at the age of 12? it was a few years prior to his baptism.
---Jared on 11/26/06

On the question of "born-again" I meditate on the purpose of the
parables and what it is to be "converted"?
Mark 4:12: "That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing
they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be
converted, and their sins should be forgiven them."
---Nana on 11/26/06

Peter was a glorious work of Jesus indeed! His walk with Jesus and
his walk in the Spirit have much to teach us about the meaning of
"converted" and "born-again":
Jesus said:
Luke 22:31: "And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired
to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
Luke 22:32: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when
thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren."

Simon said:

Luke 22:33: "And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both

#1 Helen_5378!!WOW!! This is the most blasphemous statement I have ever heard.

"Jesus Christ never had the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is only given to sinners who have become born-again."

Are you saying that Sampson was a born-again sinner only when the "Spirit came mightly upon him"? Or was that a differrent spirit than the Holy Spirit? What about all of the scriptures given through the prophets? Were they also born-again sinners?
---Ryan on 11/26/06

#2 Helen_5378, Appearantly you have used your black hi-liter on scriptures that say, "Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit" and, "Jesus, being led by the Holy Spirit." That you are considered the most helpful blogger on ChristiaNet reveals the failure of the voting system.

Helen..My Bible says Jesus was full of the Holy spirit...
Luke 4:1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness
The Holy Spirit descended on him like a dove...Matthew 3:16.
---sam on 11/26/06

Nana - Those who were born-again had not yet received the Holy Spirit.
---Helen_5378 on 11/26/06

Jesus Christ never had the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is only given to sinners who have become born-again. Jesus was not a sinner.

1st Cliff, Only God can fulfill the justice of God. Poor Israel, because of their lack of faith they received the law and that showed mankind the utter impossibility of mankind to justify himself, through works, to God. So God had to justify hummanity through Himself because He is the only one that can fulfill His law.

This is the confusion that confronts the trinitarian; Jesus performed no miracles 'till after receiving HS at his baptism (some 30 years) after which he fed the multitude,healed the sick,walked on water etc. He is not the Father,nor the HS but the"Son of the living God" Jn.20.22 "He breathed on them and said receive HS" You don't breathe a person on someone!

Lily - Hi. What you say about all the members of the Godhead being the Father is not correct. The Father is the only One called Father. The Son is Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is the Holy Spirit. They are 3 separate persons together as one God.
---Helen_5378 on 11/25/06

Jesus Christ, Almighty God, Holy Spirit is one person who can do the work of 3. Jesus Christ the Father, Almighty God the Father, Holy Spirit the Father. He is infinite, omniscient,omnipresence,omnipotent,omnific,etc. There is no other divine being such as Him. He is the one and only Divine Being who moves us to believe in His saving love and the plan of our salvation from our sins.

The Holy Spirit was, is, and ever shall be the Spirit of God. Isaiah61:1, Isaiah 59:21, Genesis1:2, Exodus31:3, 1 Chronicles28:12, Ezekiel37:14, Ezekiel37:14, Psalms139:7, Isaiah63:10, Psalm51:11, Isaiah42:1, Micah 3:8, Isaiah44:3. I could go one, but you get the point.

Helen 5378,
If I may ask, who was it that had not received the Holy Ghost
until after Jesus was glorified?
---Nana on 11/24/06

Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit & the seed of Mary.

Exactly, so he was born with the Holy Spirit already in him. Which makes sense if you believe in the Trinity.
---grace3869 on 11/24/06

Jesus Christ never received the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Jesus was water baptised only. When the Holy Spirit descended on Jesus at His water baptism it was to annoint Him for His earthly ministry. Jesus was under the Old Covenant. "The Holy Spirit was not yet given because Jesus was not yet glorified" (John 7:39).
---Helen_5378 on 11/24/06

Luke 1:15 speaks of John "and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost,

which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas,
which was guide to them that took Jesus."

In the NT the Holy Ghost begins to be much spoken of. Scriptures about it
point to it being in existence from time old as seen in Acts 1:16. What
was unique to Christ was that he could baptize with it. Now that the Holy
Ghost has been given to so many, it may be a good time to ponder:
Mark 3:29: "But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never
forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:"
---Nana on 11/23/06

in the Old Testement it does talk about a spirit coming on people that gives them super powers so to speak.

so that wasn't the first time anyone got the spirit but i do believe that was the first time he got it.
---tony on 11/23/06

No. He and the Holy Spirit were one. The Holy Spirit descended (appeared) on to Him when He was baptised to show the world that this was God's Son. He must have already had the Holy Spirit earlier - witness His wisdom in the temple at a very young age.
