Repentance comes from a Greek word meaning to change to your right mind, allowing knowledge that anyone who lives in sin is not in their right mind. Christ said, “Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish.” Luke 13:5 Repentance is a command of God to restore fellowship between man and God, and involves a sorrow for your actions, a change of heart and mind, and change of direction. Repentance is confessing and forsaking sin along with a sincere cry for mercy and forgiveness. Not only is repentance required to find salvation originally but every Christian must have an attitude and willingness each day to repent and remain humble before God. Acts 2:38 teaches us :Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
B. WATER BAPTISM:
Water baptism is the second step in Salvation Acts 2:38. Water baptism is just as essential as the first step, Repentance. The same scripture that teaches repentance also teaches baptism in water in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, for the remission of sin. The word Baptize in English comes from the Greek word, Baptizo, which means to plunge, cover up, put under, immerse or bury. For water baptism to be scriptural, it must be administered in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, or Jesus Christ.
C. THE INFILLING OF THE HOLY GHOST
Christ taught men to receive the Holy Ghost. In John 14:16-18, we find that Christ taught that He would baptize all of His followers with the Holy Ghost. Christ refers to Himself as being the Spirit of Truth, “but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” That was Christ. “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” The original translation states, “I will not leave you orphans, but I will come to you,” showing that He was their heavenly Father, and that He was the Holy Ghost that was to come, and that did come on the day of Pentecost. In John 14:26 Christ states that the Spirit of Truth is the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost. This is what the 120 received on the day of Pentecost Acts 2:4, John 15:26-27. The Holy Ghost when received according to the New Testament was always accompanied by the speaking with tongues Acts 2:4, Acts 10:44-48, Acts 19:1-7. The speaking with tongues is the outward sign (evidence) of inward grace of God. Paul was filled with the Holy Ghost, he spoke with tongues I Cor. 14:18.
