You Must Call on the Name of the Lord (April 2017)

After Saul encountered Christ on the road to Damascus, Ananias came to instruct him. He said, “You must call on the name of the Lord,” to “baptize yourself” with the Holy Ghost (Acts 22:16, Lavender’s New Testament).

According to Acts 26:16, we simultaneously receive the Pentecost power of the Holy Spirit and entire sanctification. Thus, to “baptize ourselves” means to pray until we obtain the blessing. God will not answer us without this committed prayer in our hearts.

Just as Ananias said to Saul, “Why are you delaying?” Jesus is saying the same to us. Will you come under this word of God?
