TEXT: Matthew 3:7-12
We have talked about the baptism of water unto repentance that John administered. We have also talked about the baptism of the Holy Ghost that Jesus brought about. The first was a baptism for those who were preparing to receive the Lord. The second is a baptism for those who have received the Lord. John says, however, that Jesus is bringing a third baptism as well -- a baptism of fire. This is a baptism for those who have chosen to reject the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and those who are the enemies of the Kingdom of God.
