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]:’” (Matthew 3:1-2, 11).
“And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
