Dr. Pike identifies several key biblical understandings that enable individuals to easily receive and live in the power of the Holy Spirit. Thousands have found the truth, “It’s as easy to be baptized in the Holy Spirit as it is to be saved” to be a reality in their own lives as they apply the principles taught in this book.
He explains: 1) The Holy Spirit is a Person with personal qualities and not some nebulous entity or force. 2) This Person is God Himself. 3) The Holy Spirit as a Person indwells a believer at salvation bringing supernatural life. 4) As a result, the Christian life is marked by a growing relationship with the Person within. 5) The baptism in the Holy Spirit results from submission to the Person, releasing supernatural power. 6) Finally, Jesus is both our Savior and baptizer in the Holy Spirit. These life-giving principles enable individuals to live in the fullness of the Spirit.
