Natural eyes and senses comprehend only visible circumstances. Your spiritual eyes and spirit man sees and understands spiritual realm. Spiritual realm is above the natural realm. All natural is only reflection of spiritual realm, where Jesus and the Father reign. The Kingdom of God is spiritual realm that affects and controls the visible realm. Our blessings in Jesus are spiritual blessings in the revelation and power of the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 1:3-5: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons and daughters through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will…

By the Holy Spirit you are connected with God and His Kingdom. Where the Holy Spirit reigns, there is the Kingdom of God. Your soul is the bridge between the spiritual and natural realm. When you were separated from God, your mind lost the ability to see, hear and understand God's spiritual things. After being born again, your spirit began to build communication with your mind. As a result of transformation of your mind, your inner man (spirit + soul) got the ability to unite the will of God.

Romans 7:22: For I joyfully agree with the law of God in the inner person...

Apostle Paul did not have doubts concerning his salvation, his faith of his calling. His inner man agreed with the will of God with delight. His problem was his body of flesh. He determined that through Jesus Christ even the law of death in his mortal body will be defeated. As a matter of fact, apostle Paul was expecting the rapture, as we can see in his letter to Thessalonians. In his letter to Galatians, he wrote:

Galatians 2:19-20: For through the Law I died to the Law, so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Paul had put away his old man and he was living in the faith of the Son of God. This is your goal also. The purpose of your salvation is to be united with Jesus and the Holy Spirit so deeply, that your natural mind and body of flesh in under the authority of your spirit. This transformation is impossible for a natural being. Your natural mind does not conceive your spiritual dimension. Therefore, Jesus gave us teaching and example through His disciples.

Jesus led His disciples to be immersed in the Holy Spirit and Fire. In this immersion, the Holy Spirit will cleanse, heal and renew our spirit and soul. Our inner man will be delivered from darkness and will be renewed into the image of Jesus. Our spirit will be strengthened and rise up to lead our soul and whole life in the faith of God.

After being immersed in the Holy Spirit, the apostles Peter and John had united with Jesus. They were able to hear His voice and see what He wants them to do. By the anointing of the Holy Spirit, they were connected with the faith of God and able to perform miracles with Jesus.

Acts 3:16: And on the basis of faith in His name, it is the name of Jesus which has strengthened this man whom you see and know; and the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect health in the presence of you all.

The promise of the Holy Spirit is our greatest promise after receiving Jesus. Our Father knows, that we are in impossible situation if we try to get into His Kingdom by our natural mind and understanding. A very deep and profound transformation is needed. Jesus will do this in us by the immersion in the Holy Spirit and Fire. Jesus considered this to be so profound for His disciples, that He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem before they will receive the promise of the Father.

Acts 1:4-5: Gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, “Which,” He said, “you heard of from Me; for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”

Jesus had taught disciples about the Kingdom of God during days. The disciples were born again and received increasingly the presence of the Holy Spirit. They went through a deep deliverance and inner healing process. They were healed from the deep wounds of darkness and were able to stay in unity of love. The disciples were able to stay together in worship and supplication after Jesus’s personal presence. They had faith to expect the fulfillment of the promise of the Father. Certainly, Jesus saw this condition before ascending to Heaven.

Acts 1:14: All these were continually devoting themselves with one mind to prayer, along with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.
Acts 2:1-4: When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly a noise like a violent rushing wind came from heaven, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And tongues that looked like fire appeared to them, distributing themselves, and a tongue rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with different tongues, as the Spirit was giving them the ability to speak out.

This speaking in tongues was not "ordinary" speaking of tongues, as most of believers do. In this immersion in the Holy Spirit, Jesus opened His spiritual realm and removed all obstacles which would hinder the proclamation of His Good News for all nations. In this occasion Jesus authorized and released His disciples into their apostolic ministry. As a result of this, great revival broke in Jerusalem. Same kind of manifestations of the Spirit have occurred for example in the Azusa Street revival.

Acts 2:7-12: They were amazed and astonished, saying, “Why, are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we each hear them in our own language to which we were born? Parthians, Medes, and Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya around Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs—we hear them speaking in our own tongues of the mighty deeds of God.” And they all continued in amazement and great perplexity, saying to one another, “What does this mean?”

When apostle Peter explained to people what had happened, he confirmed that the same immersion in the Holy Spirit is for everyone, who receives Jesus. The immersion in the Holy Spirit for your apostolic ministry is waiting for you. Jesus knows that you need power. He has power of the Holy Spirit and Fire for you.

Acts 2:38-40: Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far away, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.” And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on urging them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation!”

The immersion in the Holy Spirit is not only one occasion. Jesus has released the promise of the Father to come over His believers continuously. You will be transformed into His image continuously. You will receive His power for your life and ministry continuously. But there are certain breakthrough moments, where the Holy Spirit and Fire will destroy powers of darkness in your soul permanently. All this will happen in your surrender, deliverance and inner healing process.

Acts 1:8:...but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and as far as the remotest part of the earth.”

When we notice the continuous presence mode of Greek language here, we can translate this verse accurately as follows:

Acts 1:8:"…but you shall receive power continuously, when the Holy Spirit is coming upon you continuously: and you will be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea and Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth…"

This is your victory of your natural mind. Your spirit man leads you the love of the Father, in the revelation of the Holy Spirit and in the faith of God. Your surrender unto Jesus and desire to be immersed in the Holy Spirit and Fire will do it.
