ARE YOU BAPTISED IN THE RUACH HA KODESH / HOLY SPIRIT?
DO YOU BEAR THE FRUIT OF THE RUACH HA KODESH / HOLY SPIRIT?
You can be BAPTISED BY IMMERSION IN WATER and RUACH HA KODESH on the same day!
INFANT BAPTISM and CONFIRMATION as taught in Anglican / Protestant / Catholic, etc Churches / Denominations are PAGAN CUSTOMS created by Satan to divert YAH’S people from THE TRUTH OF YAH. YAHUSHUA was not baptised as an infant and NEVER CONFIRMED (Matthew 3 & 4)! After HIS baptism, YAHUSHUA went into MINISTRY meaning that HE started serving YAH fervently.
Hosea 4:6 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
6 My PEOPLE are DESTROYED for want of KNOWLEDGE.
Because you REJECTED KNOWLEDGE,
I will also REJECT you as COHEN for me.
Because you forgot the TORAH of your (YAH) GOD,
I will also forget your children.
John 8:32 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
32 you will know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH will set you FREE.”
John 14:6 Names of God Bible (NOG)
6 (YAHUSHUA) Yeshua answered him, “I AM the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. NO ONE goes to the FATHER except through ME.
Rather, as an infant, YAHUSHUA was NAMED as well as CIRCUMCISED on the 8th day from the day of his birth (Luke 2:21-24). After 40 days of birth, YAHUSHUA was DEDICATED by Simeon and Anna to YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD THE FATHER (Luke 2:25-40). Years later, at the age of 30, YAHUSHUA was BAPTISED IMMERSION IN WATER and immediately after that BAPTISED BY THE RUACH HA KODESH who was symbolised as a DOVE from the HEAVENS. It was after that HE was declared as YAH’S SON / CHILD / FOLLOWER (Matthew 3:1-3).
YAHUSHUA went ahead as our example for us to follow all the days of our lives.
John 13:15 Names of God Bible (NOG)
15 I’ve given you an example that you should follow.
1 Peter 2:21-25 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
21 Indeed, this is what you were called to; because the Messiah too suffered, on your behalf, leaving an example so that you should follow in his steps.
22 “He committed no sin,
nor was any deceit found on his lips.”[a]
23 When he was insulted, he didn’t retaliate with insults; when he suffered, he didn’t threaten, but handed them over to him who judges justly. 24 He himself bore our sins[b] in his body on the stake,[c] so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness — by his wounds you were healed.[d] 25 For you used to be like sheep gone astray, but now you have turned to[e] the Shepherd, who watches over you.
Hebrews 12 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
12 So then, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us, too, put aside every impediment — that is, the sin which easily hampers our forward movement — and keep running with endurance in the contest set before us, 2 looking away to the Initiator and Completer of that trusting,[a] Yeshua — who, in exchange for obtaining the joy set before him, endured execution on a stake as a criminal, scorning the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.[b] 3 Yes, think about him who endured such hostility against himself from sinners, so that you won’t grow tired or become despondent. 4 You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in the contest against sin.
HE was VICTORIOUS over satan and his demons and passed that victory on to us that truly belong to HIM.
RUACH HA KODESH BAPTISM:
It is VITAL because The RUACH HA KODESH is a SEAL / SIGNET ENGAGEMENT RING of all Believers in and Followers of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH!
YAH says in:
Exodus 27:20-21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Oil for the Lamps
20 You shall command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of crushed olives, to be used for the light, so that you may keep lamps burning always. 21 From evening to morning Aaron and his sons shall maintain them before the Lord in the tent of meeting, outside the veil which hangs in front of the covenant. This shall be a perpetual statute for the Israelites throughout their generations.
Joel 2:28-30 Names of God Bible (NOG)
The Lord Will Pour His Spirit on All People
28 “After this, I will pour my Ruach on everyone.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
Your old men will dream dreams.
Your young men will see visions.
29 In those days I will pour my Ruach on servants,
on both men and women.
30 I will work miracles in the sky and on the earth:
blood, fire, and clouds of smoke.
Then YAH illustrates an important related issue as seen in Matthew 25 below:

MATTHEW 25:1-13 COMPLETE JEWISH BIBLE (CJB)
THE PARABLE OF THE TEN BRIDES / VIRGINS
25 “The KINGDOM OF HEAVEN at that time will be like ten bridesmaids who took their LAMPS (MENORAHS which represent YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH) and went out to meet the GROOM (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). 2 Five of them were foolish and five were sensible. 3 The foolish ones took LAMPS (MENORAHS in Hebrew. They represent YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH) with them but no OIL, 4 whereas the others took flasks of OIL (OIL FROM THE RUACH HA KODESH / HOLY SPIRIT) with their LAMPS (MENORAHS which represent YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). 5 Now the BRIDEGROOM (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH) was late, so they all went to sleep. 6 It was the middle of the night when the cry rang out, ‘The BRIDEGROOM (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH) is here! Go out to meet him!’ 7 The girls all woke up and prepared their LAMPS (MENORAHS) for lighting. 8 The FOOLISH ONES (Some Bride of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH) said to the SENSIBLE ONES (Some BRIDE OF YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH), ‘Give us some of your OIL (OIL OF THE RUACH HA KODESH / HOLY SPIRIT), because our LAMPS (MENORAHS which represent YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH) are going out.’ 9 ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both you and us. Go to the OIL dealers (RUACH HA KODESH / HOLY SPIRIT) and buy some for yourselves.’ 10 But as they were going off to buy, the BRIDGEGROOM (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACHY) came. Those who were ready went with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut. 11 Later, the other BRIDESMAIDS (BRIDE OF YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH) came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they cried, ‘Let us in!’ 12 But he answered, ‘Indeed! I tell you, I don’t know you!’ 13 So stay alert, because you know neither the day nor the hour.
Years later YAH fulfilled HIS PROPHECY seen in Joel 2:28-30 as seen below:
Acts 2:1-4 Names of God Bible (NOG)
The Believers Are Filled with the Holy Spirit
2 When Pentecost, the fiftieth day after Passover, came, all the believers were together in one place. 2 Suddenly, a sound like a violently blowing wind came from the sky and filled the whole house where they were staying. 3 Tongues that looked like fire appeared to them. The tongues arranged themselves so that one came to rest on each believer. 4 All the believers were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages as the Spirit gave them the ability to speak.
We need YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH and the RUACH HA KODESH in order to return to Heaven for eternity!!!
Without the RUACH HA KODESH / HOLY SPIRIT, we cannot return to the Shammayim / Heavens to be with ABBA YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD and YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH and RUACH HA KODESH for eternity!!!
We are sealed by and betrothed to YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH as HIS HOLY BRIDE and GUESTS through the BAPTISM OF THE RUACH HA KODESH (Ephesians 1:13; & 4:30; 2 Corinthians 1:22; Revelation 7)! YAHUSHUA is our Spiritual BRIDEGROOM who is currently in HIS ABBA’S House preparing Mansions / Places for us (John 14:2-4). In ABBA’S time, YAHUSHUA will return to collect HIS HOLY BRIDE & GUESTS (Matthew 24:36)!
Our Spiritual PROMISED LAND / LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY that we are racing / walking towards is the Shammayim / Heavens (Exodus 3:8,17; 33:3; Joshua 3:6; Numbers 13:27-28; Revelation 21). Spiritual Egypt that we have left is satan’s bondage / slavery (to sin) which does not want us to worship YAH in HIS Way (Genesis 15:13; Exodus 6:6; 20:2; Judges 6:8; Deuteronomy 6:12; 8:14; Jeremiah 34:13; Acts 7:6)!
We need to believe plus confess that YAHUSHUA is the only one and true Messiah / Saviour, Be washed by YAHUSHUA’S Blood and, Baptised by immersion in water, Baptised by the RUACH HA KODESH, Live Holy and Righteous before YAH by being obedient to HIM daily, in order to return to the Shammayim / Heavens (Mark 16:16; John 14:6; Romans 10:9-13; Acts 8:26-40; Ya’akov / James 1; Romans 6:15-23; Hebrews 10:38; Ephesians 5; 2 Peter 2:3)!
Infant Baptism IS NOT BIBLICAL at all! Even YAHUSHUA was not baptised as an infant but rather as an adult at age 30 by Yahuchanan / John The Baptist / Immerser in water after which by the RUACH HA KODESH in the form of a dove (Mattityahu / Matthew 3:13-17). YAHUSHUA was officially named and circumcised. HE was later dedicated to YAH by Anna and Simeon. This is what Orthodox Jews do to this day (name, circumcise if a boy then dedicate to YAH).
We really need the RUACH HA KODESH more than ever because times are changing, and changing fast! We can’t know ha-satan’s plans without RUACH HA KODESH plus we can’t avoid YAH’S bowls of anger without YAH’S RUACH (Revelation 7; Jeremiah 33:3)!!! Pray for a fresh in-filling of the RUACH HA KODESH !
Get your life right with YAH!!! You don’t have all the time in the world! YAH is in control of everything in and around you. You can give HIM more total control if you surrender all to HIM so that ha-satan can back off you and not drag you to hell with him!
SPIRITUAL FRUIT AS A RESULT OF BEING BAPTISED BY THE RUACH HA KODESH / HOLY SPIRIT:
Galatians 5:22-23 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
22 But the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, 23 HUMILITY, SELF-CONTROL. Nothing in the Torah stands against such things.
John 15:5-8 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
5 “I am the vine and you are the branches. Those who stay united with me, and I with them, are the ones who bear much fruit; because apart from me you can’t do a thing. 6 Unless a person remains united with me, he is thrown away like a branch and dries up. Such branches are gathered and thrown into the fire, where they are burned up.
7 “If you remain united with me, and my words with you, then ask whatever you want, and it will happen for you. 8 This is how my Father is glorified — in your bearing much fruit; this is how you will prove to be my talmidim.
Being thrown into the fire implies MISSING HEAVEN and rather be thrown into hell.
HOW IS YOUR SPIRITUAL FRUIT? Are you more like YAHUSHUA?
GOOD FRUIT = A desire to live RIGHTEOUSLY, TO BE OBEDIENT TO YAH NO MATTER WHAT
1 Peter 1:16 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
16 since the Tanakh says,
“You are to be holy because I am holy.”[a]
Hebrews 12:14 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
14 Keep pursuing shalom with everyone and the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.
Leviticus 11:44-45 Names of God Bible (NOG)
44 “Here is the reason: I am Yahweh your Elohim. You must live holy lives. Be holy because I am holy. Never become unclean by touching anything that swarms or crawls on the ground. 45 Here is the reason again: I am Yahweh. I brought you out of Egypt to be your Elohim. Be holy because I am holy.
Leviticus 11:44-45 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
44 For I am Adonai your God; therefore, consecrate yourselves and be holy, for I am holy; and do not defile yourselves with any kind of swarming creature that moves along the ground. (Maftir) 45 For I am Adonai, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt to be your God. Therefore you are to be holy, because I am holy.
Leviticus 20:26 Names of God Bible (NOG)
26 Be my holy people because I, Yahweh, am holy. I have separated you from other people to be my very own.
Romans 8:12 Names of God Bible (NOG)
12 So, brothers and sisters, we have no obligation to live the way our corrupt nature wants us to live.
Romans 12:1-2 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
12 I exhort you, therefore, brothers, in view of God’s mercies, to offer yourselves as a sacrifice, living and set apart for GOD. This will please him; it is the logical “Temple worship” for you. 2 In other words, do not let yourselves be conformed to the standards of the ‘olam hazeh. Instead, keep letting yourselves be transformed by the renewing of your minds; so that you will know what GOD wants and will agree that what he wants is good, satisfying and able to succeed. 3 For I am telling every single one of you, through the grace that has been given to me, not to have exaggerated ideas about your own importance. Instead, develop a sober estimate of yourself based on the standard which God has given to each of you, namely, trust.
John 4:21-24 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
21 Yeshua said, “Lady, believe me, the time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Yerushalayim. 22 You people don’t know what you are worshipping; we worship what we do know, because salvation comes from the Jews. 23 But the time is coming — indeed, it’s here now — when the true worshippers will worship the Father spiritually and truly, for these are the kind of people the Father wants worshipping him. 24 God is spirit; and worshippers must worship him spiritually and truly.”
Psalm 22:3 Amplified Bible (AMP)
But You are holy,
O You who are enthroned in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered].
Exodus 30:1- 10 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
30 (vii) “You are to make an altar on which to burn incense; make it of acacia-wood. 2 It is to be eighteen inches square and three feet high; its horns are to be of one piece with it. 3 Overlay it with pure gold — its top, all around its sides, and its horns; and put around it a molding of gold. 4 Make two gold rings for it under its molding at the two corners on both sides; this is where the carrying-poles will go. 5 Make the poles of acacia-wood, and overlay them with gold.
6 “Place it in front of the curtain by the ark for the testimony, in front of the ark-cover that is over the testimony, where I will meet with you. 7 Aharon will burn fragrant incense on it as a pleasing aroma every morning; he is to burn it when he prepares the lamps. (Maftir) 8 Aharon is also to burn it when he lights the lamps at dusk; this is the regular burning of incense before Adonai through all your generations. 9 You are not to offer unauthorized incense on it, or a burnt offering or a grain offering; and you are not to pour a drink offering on it. 10 Aharon is to make atonement on its horns once a year — with the blood of the sin offering of atonement he is to make atonement for it once a year through all your generations; it is especially holy to Adonai.”
When we worship YAH in SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH, HE dwells in our PRAISES because it is a SWEET SMELLING SACRIFICE / OFFERING TO HIM. When YAH dwells in our praises, it means that we are FILLED WITH HIS RUACH HA KODESH who is the SHKINYINYAH GLORY OF YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD THE FATHER implying the VERY PRESENCE OF YAH!!!
The more we Praise and Worship YAH, the more of YAH we are filled with and the more of HIM we have inside of our spirits, hence the more we desire to be like HIM and do things like HIM, thereby being HOLY AS YAH IS HOLY!!! Without HIM and more of HIM in us, we are nothing and can not accomplish much. Without HIM and more of HIM in us, we it is difficult to BEAR GOOD FRUIT FOR HIM.
We also need to have the SEVEN SPIRITS / RUACH OF YAH as mentioned below:
Isaiah 11:1-3 Names of God Bible (NOG)
The Lord’s Kingdom Will Be Ruled by a Shoot from Jesse’s Stump
11 Then a shoot will come out from the stump of Jesse,
and a branch from its roots will bear fruit.
2 The Ruach Yahweh will rest on him—
the Ruach of wisdom and understanding,
the Ruach of advice and power,
the Ruach of knowledge and fear of Yahweh.
3 He will gladly bear the fear of Yahweh.
He will not judge by what his eyes see
or decide by what his ears hear.
Revelation 3:1 Names of God Bible (NOG)
A Letter to the Church in Sardis
3 “To the messenger of the church in Sardis, write:
The one who has God’s seven spirits and the seven stars says: I know what you have done. You are known for being alive, but you are dead.
Revelation 4:5 Names of God Bible (NOG)
5 Lightning, noise, and thunder came from the throne. Seven flaming torches were burning in front of the throne. These are the seven spirits of God.
