..:I baptize you with... ::. by Nekootje246 ..:I baptize you with... ::. by Nekootje246

Then she that gladly received His word was baptized by His Holy Spirit and Fire!

...::Short Story::...

She was so nervous. It was crowded with people at the river. Waiting for people who also wants let them get baptized. Suddenly the crowd starts to sing and whistle. She saw someone walking into the river, the warm water of the Jordan. A simple man was walking to the man who was ready to receive his testimony and his belief in him. She didn't understand. Something great was about that Man.
A single tear was running over her cheek after the baptism. She was still so young but yet: she was willing to follow this Man! He was naming Himself the Messiah, the Saviour. He also called for the Father in Heaven that He longs to people without fear to come for His Beloved Father!
A small child was running through the crowd. She was crying and with her pretty clothes she runned through the dirty water. But only she wanted is to be close to Him... She was sure of it, her whole heart was full of it after those beautiful words! But it was still so crowded, everyone wanted to be touched by Him... She was jumping and almost drowning; she was still little... Suddenly the Man said: "STOP!"

The crowd was vanishing. She was swimming to the coast again but two strong arms was holding her suddenly. She turned her head to the face she always was hoping to see...

Eye to eye....
Face fo face...
Soul to soul...
Heart to heart...
How closer she could be with Him?...
Him self was carrying her in His mighty arms!!

To the place where people were get baptized. He looked in to her eyes and asked her with His voice at a low point but still very tenderly:" Do you believe in Me?" She said: "Yes..."
Her eyes was full of tears and was searching for the hands that hold her so close to His heart...
He asked once more time: "Do you believe in Me? And in My Father Who has created the Earth and you?" He went to the shallow, so that she could stand in the water and put her down again. But she was shocked. For this she wasn't ready for yet. But she was remembering the whole story how He was born on this earth and died for their sins, not only for their sins but also to love them, for eternally also to bring them to God the Father, Who LONGS for their hearts and the whole being! She was looking in His eyes and grabbed His hands. With a soft voice she said: "Lord, I didn't know, is it still possible to get baptized? Because I have heard Your words for the first time and it touched my heart... and I believe You! You died for our sins and You're truly risen!"
With a smile she looked into His wonderful face, and then He said: "Dear beloved, I baptise you with the Word of God and My Fire!" The Man cupped His one hand under her head and under her shoulder. Then He pushed her under water for few seconds but after that she came from the water.... then she saw Him in all His Glory! There were no words for that feeling for describe... She could touch Him and huggle Him, but yet... until that day! We will praise Him! !
