Common Barriers to the Baptism in the Holy Spirit


Be Filled: We must act in obedience to work in cooperation with the Spirit.

To overcome this barrier, we must first understand com­munication theory in God’s design. The apostle Paul helps us un­derstand this very concept when he gave the Corinthian Church guidelines for the prophetic experience of the Spirit baptism. In regard to the evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit, Paul reminded the Corinthians that the prophetic gift of tongues re­quires an act of obedience and control by the speaker. He stated, “The spirits of prophets are subjects to the control of prophets” (1 Corinthians 14:32), and finished his thought encouraging them by stating, “be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way” (vv. 39-40).
