Baptized in the Holy Spirit?

Let God's Word through the power of The Holy Spirit direct you through the means God's Word says :) The narrow path is following The Scriptures as the number 1 authority... when we suggest a spiritual feeling or intuition as authority we have started down the path of error! Thus why God promised through this success

2 Tim 3:15-17

15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
KJV

We ask God to direct us in His Word through s/Spiritually inspired teachers that we may teach others also … so as born again possessors of God The Holy Spirit we have the unction to discern truth as we yield to His already learned truth of the Word within us... Sanctification!

Can you please clarify to me how suggesting someone ask God their questions and asking Him to show them through His WORD [i.e. Scripture taking priority!] is suggesting a spiritual feeling or intution is the authority?   I am pointing people to God and to His Word as the *sole* authority, let alone the 1st priority ... not to feelings or intutions.  So I really truly do not understand what your issue is with what I have stated.

You are bypassing how The Holy Spirit does so through teachers... People New Born yet not knowing God's Word or framework of same cannot just read and understand... just as you have stated there are two baptisms when God's Word teaches only of one...

So you're saying we have to ask God to direct us to an intermediary instead of being able to ask Him to show us directly?

What does God's Word say :) 
 

Heb 5:12-14

12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
KJV

I'm sorry.  I must humbly disagree with you.  I do not find *any* Scripture that supports this assumption that just because God *does* give us teachers, that we are only permitted, biblically speaking, to ask God to direct us to a human intermediary instead of getting our answers from the Author of Scripture Himself. 

And this does not answer my question as to how my suggesting people get their answers directly from God is giving priority to feelings or intuition.

When you demand God to come to you directly with answers when He purposed to do so with teachers- you are in fact demanding in yourself authority outside of the Scriptural design and how you internalize by feeling or intuition as the the answer from God... but How do you prove this? This is what is called subjective truth … but the Word itself is objective truth... Jesus said it many many times 'it is written'

Heb 5:12-14

12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

I would never presume to *demand* anything from God. 

My Bible tells me that while He does give us human teachers, He also sent us the Holy Spirit to be our Teacher; and that I can ask, seek and knock and He will answer me.  In fact, James 1:5 *promises* me that if *any* lacks wisdom let him ask of God who gives liberally and without reproach.  His word does *not* say I have to ask Him to send me to someone else in order to teach me the things of which I am seeking Him on.

30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

That scripture is saying not everyone speaks in tongues. 

Is speaking in tongues proof of the Holy Spirit baptism? that scripture appears to say it isnt, its a gift some have, and some dont.

This is not what we have examined in Scripture.... so what you are clinging to here is what actually? Something you have always been taught that is true or The Scriptures say

Heb 5:12-14

12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
KJV

Because this is what they say and it is not matching to what you are saying... what exactly is wrong with using the whole council of God in this?
