I baptize you with[a] water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with[b] the Holy Spirit and fire.

Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by the faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit. http://www.ag.org/top/beliefs/statement_of_fundamental_truths/sft_full.cfm#9\host.

There are 7 baptisms for believers listed in the New Testament. Baptism of Fire could be Holy Spirit or persecution as early Pentecostals saw their power in being persecuted for the Gospel. We had a good discussion not long ago on the whole baptism in fire, dynamit etc. But matters little what we think about it and it’s more important what John the Baptis meant when he said: He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. (Matthew 3:11 )

McMinnville, Tennessee Church of God

The term FIRE-BAPTIZED was introduced to the Holiness movement BEFORE they were baptized with the HG.. Irwin taught of a third blessing that came after salvation and entire sanctification called the “baptism of fire.” While speaking in tongues was not unheard of among the Fire-Baptized Holiness, it was not (or perhaps not yet) understood as the initial evidence of fire baptism. This idea was formulated by Charles Parham and only began to influence the Fire-Baptized Church (est. 1895 Lincoln, Nebraska) as news of the Azusa Street Revival spread after 1906. By 1900 (i.e. before Azusa), Irwin also taught there were additional “baptisms of fire” he called baptisms of “dynamite”, “lyddite”, and “oxidite”. This “chemical jargon” never took root within the church and was abandoned by Irwin’s successors. It was also discarded by the few Pentecostal circles that adopted it once the doctrine of HS baptism was finalized at Azusa and denominations like AoG and CoG introduced their doctrinal statements. We had a great discussion about those early roots not long ago, but I cannot find the article. Perhaps Charles Page remembers it and can point you to it

Irwin became convinced that there was an experience beyond sanctification called the “baptism with the Holy Ghost and fire” or simply “the fire”. After receiving this experience in October 1895, he began to preach this “third blessing” among holiness adherents in the Midwest, particularly among Wesleyan Methodists and Brethren in Christ. His services were highly emotional with participants often getting the “jerks”, shouting, speaking in tongues, and holy dancing and laughing.

    The Evidence of the Baptism with the Holy Spirit

    How does a person know if they have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit? Is there any evidence to show that a person has received? Fortunately the Scriptures show us that there is evidence that one has been baptized with the Holy Spirit. In order to demonstrate this we are going to revisit the texts in Acts that were cited in the previous section.

      Troy Day without judgement there is no grace. Dispensing grace and mercy is an act of judgement. Lord judge us, vindicate our hearts with a baptism of fire 🔥 Hebrew tradition welcomes the judgement of God as a virtuous aspect of God, because it is a righteous virtue of a righteous God who dispenses justice. My God is a consuming 🔥

    The Baptism of fire identifies those subject to it with judgment and destruction. It is found in only two passages (Matt 3:11; Luke 3:16), which are parallel accounts. John the Baptist is speaking to the crowd as well as to the Pharisees and Sadducees. John says, “as for me I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I…He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

    Acts 2:19-20. Witness brings responsibility to men and portends judgment to those who reject it. Thus the prophecy of Joel moves from the thought of testimony through an outpoured Spirit, to that of the judgment of the day of the Lord in these verses. The fearful signs here given will announce the imminent arrival of the Lord in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God and obey not the gospel, who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power (cf. 2 Thess 1:7-9).

    It is therefore clear that these signs announce the everlasting doom of those yet unsaved. Hence they may be viewed as symbolic of eternal judgment. Note:

    1. Blood—symbol of death; the first step to eternal doom (Heb 9:27).

    2. Fire—symbol of divine punishment; clearly turning our minds to hell, the lake of fire.

    3. Vapor of smoke—symbol of torment (cf. Rev 14:11). Fire without smoke is not burning anything. Smoke signals that fire is affecting something which therefore is feeling its intensity and effect. Thus smoke fittingly suggests the effect of eternal fire upon those who are in it, i.e., tormenting them (cf. Luke 16:23-24).

    4. The sun shall be turned into darkness—symbol of the “blackness of darkness forever.” Hell is the place where men who have turned their backs on the Light of the World will suffer the agony of an eternal night.

    5. And the moon into blood—second reference to blood; symbol of death, hence a symbol of the “second death.” A darkened sky lighted by a blood-red orb would be a dreadful sight. But the darkness of hell is a place where but one thing is really visible-the experience of the second death. (If we could see souls in hell, we would indeed see them conscious and existing. For whereas the first death is an experience producing unconsciousness, the second death is a conscious experience of death. But whereas they exist, there is nothing worth existing for, whereas they are conscious, there is nothing worth being conscious of. To such a sight one might well respond, “these exist, but do not live.” For there is nothing here that deserves the name of life. This is the second death.)

    Blood, fire, vapor of smoke are doubtless signs in the earth beneath and represent the physical side of eternal judgment. The moon and sun are signs in heaven above and represent the spiritual side of eternal judgment.
