John the Baptist on JESUS:

Mark 1:8

King James Version

8 I indeed have baptized you with water: 

but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

What does "outpouring of SPIRIT" mean?

Who is the HOLY SPIRIT?

What can He do?

Here's what the Bible says:

Isaiah 44:1-4

King James Version

44 Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; 

and Israel, whom I have chosen:

2 Thus saith the Lord that made thee, 

and formed thee from the womb, 

which will help thee; 

Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; 

and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.

3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, 

and floods upon the dry ground: 

I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, 

and my blessing upon thine offspring:

4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, 

as willows by the water courses.

Joel 2:28-32

King James Version

28 And it shall come to pass afterward, 

that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; 

and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, 

your old men shall dream dreams, 

your young men shall see visions:

29 And also upon the servants 

and upon the handmaids in those days 

will I pour out my spirit.

30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens 

and in the earth, 

blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, 

and the moon into blood, 

before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.

32 And it shall come to pass, 

that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord 

shall be delivered: 

for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem 

shall be deliverance, 

as the Lord hath said, 

and in the remnant 

whom the Lord shall call.

Zechariah 12:8-10

King James Version

8 In that day shall the Lord defend 

the inhabitants of Jerusalem; 

and he that is feeble among them at that day 

shall be as David; 

and the house of David shall be as God, 

as the angel of the Lord before them.

9 And it shall come to pass in that day, 

that I will seek to destroy all the nations 

that come against Jerusalem.

10 And I will pour upon the house of David, 

and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, 

the spirit of grace and of supplications: 

and they shall look upon me 

whom they have pierced, 

and they shall mourn for him, 

as one mourneth for his only son, 

and shall be in bitterness for him, 

as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Matthew 3:11-12

King James Version

11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. 

but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, 

whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: 

he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, 

and with fire:

12 Whose fan is in his hand, 

and he will throughly purge his floor, 

and gather his wheat into the garner; 

but he will burn up the chaff 

with unquenchable fire.

Luke 24:49

King James Version

49 And, behold, 

I send the promise of my Father upon you: 

but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, 

until ye be endued with power from on high.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

Acts 1:5

King James Version

5 For John truly baptized with water; 

but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost 

not many days hence.

Acts 2:1-4

King James Version

2 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, 

they were all with one accord in one place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven 

as of a rushing mighty wind, 

and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared unto them 

cloven tongues like as of fire, 

and it sat upon each of them.

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, 

and began to speak with other tongues, 

as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 2:38

King James Version

38 Then Peter said unto them, 


and be baptized every one of you 

in the name of Jesus Christ 

for the remission of sins,

 and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 8:14-17

King James Version

14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem 

heard that Samaria had received the word of God, 

they sent unto them Peter and John:

15 Who, when they were come down, 

prayed for them, 

that they might receive the Holy Ghost:

16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: 

only they were baptized 

in the name of the Lord Jesus.)

17 Then laid they their hands on them, 

and they received the Holy Ghost.

Acts 10:36-38

King James Version

36 The word which God 

sent unto the children of Israel, 

preaching peace by Jesus Christ: 

(he is Lord of all:)

37 That word, I say, ye know, 

which was published throughout all Judaea, 

and began from Galilee, 

after the baptism which John preached;

38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth 

with the Holy Ghost and with power: 

who went about doing good, 

and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; 

for God was with him.

Acts 10:42-48

King James Version

42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, 

and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God 

to be the Judge of quick and dead.

43 To him give all the prophets witness, 

that through his name whosoever believeth in him 

shall receive remission of sins.

44 While Peter yet spake these words, 

the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

45 And they of the circumcision which believed 

were astonished, 

as many as came with Peter, 

because that on the Gentiles also 

was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

46 For they heard them speak with tongues, 

and magnify God. 

Then answered Peter,

47 Can any man forbid water, 

that these should not be baptized, 

which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

48 And he commanded them to be baptized 

in the name of the Lord. 

Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

Acts 11:15-18

King James Version

15 And as I began to speak, 

the Holy Ghost fell on them, 

as on us at the beginning.

16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, 

how that he said, 

John indeed baptized with water; 

but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.

17 Forasmuch then as God gave them 

the like gift as he did unto us, 

who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; 

what was I, that I could withstand God?

18 When they heard these things, 

they held their peace, 

and glorified God, 


Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted 

repentance unto life.

1 Corinthians 12:13

King James Version

13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, 

whether we be Jews or Gentiles, 

whether we be bond or free; 

and have been all made to drink 

into one Spirit.

Titus 3:1-7

King James Version

3 Put them in mind to be subject 

to principalities and powers, 

to obey magistrates, 

to be ready to every good work,

2 To speak evil of no man, 

to be no brawlers, but gentle, 

shewing all meekness unto all men.

3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, 

disobedient, deceived, 

serving divers lusts and pleasures, 

living in malice and envy, 

hateful, and hating one another.

4 But after that 

the kindness and love of God our Saviour 

toward man appeared,

5 Not by works of righteousness 

which we have done, 

but according to his mercy he saved us, 

by the washing of regeneration, 

and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

6 Which he shed on us abundantly 

through Jesus Christ our Saviour;

7 That being justified by his grace, 

we should be made heirs 

according to the hope of eternal life.
