BEAUTIFUL HOLY BIBLE

"THEN JESUS CAME FROM GALILEE TO THE JORDAN TO BE BAPTIZED BY JOHN.  BUT JOHN TRIED TO DETER HIM, SAYING, 'I NEED TO BE BAPTIZED BY YOU, AND DO YOU COME TO ME?'  JESUS REPLIED, 'LET IT BE SO NOW; IT IS PROPER FOR US TO DO THIS TO FULFILL ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS.'  THEN JOHN CONSENTED.  AS SOON AS JESUS WAS BAPTIZED, HE  WENT UP OUT OF THE WATER.  AT THAT MOMENT HEAVEN WAS OPENED, AND HE SAW THE SPIRIT OF GOD DESCENDING LIKE A DOVE AND ALIGHTING ON HIM.  AND A VOICE FROM HEAVEN SAID, 'THIS IS MY SON (JESUS) WHOM I LOVE; WITH HIM, I AM WELL PLEASED.'" MATTHEW 3:13-17


LUKE 18:15-17, JESUS LOVES THE LITTLE CHILDREN AND COMMANDS US TO BE LIKE CHILDREN IN OUR FAITH

"PEOPLE WERE ALSO BRINGING BABIES TO JESUS FOR HIM TO PLACE HIS HANDS ON THEM.  WHEN THE DISCIPLES SAW THIS, THEY REBUKED THEM. BUT JESUS CALLED THE CHILDREN TO HIM AND SAID, "LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME TO ME, AND DO NOT HINDER THEM, FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD BELONGS TO SUCH AS THESE.  TRULY I TELL YOU ANYONE WHO WILL NOT RECEIVE THE KINGDOM OF GOD LIKE A LITTLE CHILD WILL NEVER ENTER IT." LUKE 18:15-17


ACTS 1:8, ACTS 2:1-4, JESUS SENDS THE HOLY SPIRIT

"BUT YOU WILL RECEIVE POWER WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT COMES ON YOU." ACTS 1:8

"WHEN THE DAY OF PENTECOST CAME, THEY WERE ALL TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE. SUDDENLY A SOUND LIKE THE BLOWING OF A VIOLENT WIND CAME FROM HEAVEN AND FILLED THE WHOLE HOUSE WHERE THEY WERE SITTING.  THEY SAW WHAT SEEMED TO BE TONGUES OF FIRE THAT SEPARATED AND CAME TO REST ON EACH OF THEM. ALL OF THEM WERE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND BEGAN TO SPEAK IN OTHER TONGUES AS THE SPIRIT ENABLED THEM." ACTS 2:1-4
