Today, focus is upon the sacred benefit and enlightenment Jesus received through water baptism.  The Spirit that indwelt Jesus is called the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, the Patience of the Saints, the Spirit of Prophecy, and the Spirit of Truth.  While miracles do manifest glory, Jesus was not granted added measures of the Holy Spirit in order to perform miracles.  The Savior did not receive a fresh deposit of the Holy Spirit as sinners must do.  Rather, the Son of the highest experienced growth and transformation (we say, an epiphany) through careful meditation, fasting, prayer, and self-denial.  Later, he would also be transfigured; in both instances, without anything being added or imparted to the Savior’s person, there would be a more complete, and greater appearance of his inward fullness.  Jesus had to submit to divine operations, and had to tarry or wait for various features to appear in sequence, and at their appointed time.  Thus, the imparted spirit he speaks of for mankind is directed to discernment, growth, revelation, and suffering.  Multiple emblems are used throughout the holy writings to describe the imparting of spirit substance from the makeup of GOD to created beings and living creatures.  Included are blood, bread, breath, clouds, corn, fire, incense, oil, smoke, water, and wine.  In addition to anointing and coronation as king, the Lord was witnessed as also receiving endorsement and ordination to holy office as counselor, judge, priest, and prophet.  The fighter at “Yahoo! 7 Answers (Australia)” using the ID “Lever” (Level 1 with 11 points, a member since July 07, 2010) posted the following:


Could Jesus do miracles before the Holy Spirit came to him? What did the Holy Spirit provide to Jesus?


THE GOLDEN ARROW:   And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:  And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.  And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.  Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.  His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.  And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.  Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.  And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.  When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was:  (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,  And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse:  but thou hast kept the good wine until now.  This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.  (John 2:  1-11, King James Version, KJV)


THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Miracles and The Cross (06/09/2016); Jesus Given A Divine Ministry? (08/18/2015); Called of GOD? (08/02/2015); Consecrated in Christ? (06/21/2014); Anointed? (04/28/2014); No More “Mr. Nice Guy”? (04/29/2014); The Priesthood of Kings (10/17/2012); Childlike Faith (10/18/2012)


“Lever”, until he “gave up the ghost” upon the cross, Jesus Christ was never “without” the Holy Spirit.  Mature Christian believers acknowledge that the Lord was conceived through operations of divinity, rather than through human sexual reproduction, and the simple joining of ovary and sperm.  In the years before his response at the Jordan River through the Levitical priesthood of John the Baptist, Jesus was in preparation for his own priesthood as redeemer and savior through ongoing, “low-profile” sacred operations that included home life, fellowship, meditation, participation as first-born in mandatory feast days, attending synagogue, and study of the law. 

For sinners, in water baptism, there is the death of ones inborn spirit, their spiritual burial, and their rebirth from divine DNA, so to speak.  As “new creations” from Christ, sinners must receive inseparable aspects of the divine makeup such as faith, holiness, joy, longsuffering, meekness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  Because emphasis is placed upon absolution (i.e., sin being removed by rinsing, sprinkling, and washing with clean water), many do not correctly understand that there must be permanent changes in ones character, nature, and substance.  Those “born again” must also “grow up again” to become mature (i.e., display balance, completeness, consistency, stability) by meeting life challenges upon the earth.  

More than being given special gifts for ministry, at the Jordan, Jesus was acknowledged as the Son by the Father and the Holy Spirit.  Anointing (making one acceptable and fragrant to GOD by using incense, prayer, and spiced oil) is provided to those who are sanctified (i.e., set apart to exclusively serve divinity), and those who are consecrated (publicly installed to serve divinity).  As the heir of GOD, Adam, Abraham, Moses and David, Jesus was anointed and consecrated to serve as deliverer (i.e., judge), exorcist, healer, high priest, king, prophet, rabbi, and teacher.

There is far more to be said, carefully examined, and spiritually understood.  (For example, miracles are sacred events that serve as prophetic demonstrations and signs to authenticate divine messages, and spokespersons.  Miracles may appear in situations where the people lack discernment (ability to use ones own spirit content from GOD as a standard to recognize divine spirit in events, messages, oneself, other persons, prophecy, etc.).  Miracles are aspects of divine revelation that further identify those sent from GOD as genuine, continue eternal purpose, and may crystallize faith.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
