ECOLE DE DISCIPLES EGLISE DE WOIPPY DU 9 NOVEMBRE 2013 – enseignement du Pasteur Jacques Chlepko .

I-Définition

Envelopper un manteau revient à se revêtir de la puissance d’en haut.Par analogie au baptême d’eau, le baptême du Saint-Esprit  est une expérience spirituelle qui représente une immersion (de notre esprit) dans la source d’eau vive intarissable qui n’est autre que le Saint-Esprit .  Cela se traduit par la manifestation des dons de l’esprit (parler en langue, prophétie…) dans la vie du croyant.

“Recevoir le Saint-Esprit” ou “recevoir le don du Saint-Esprit”, sont des expressions qui dans la pensée des apôtres désignent : Être baptisé du Saint-Esprit (Actes 2:38; 8.15-17).

II-L’action du Saint-Esprit dans l’Ancien Testament  

L’esprit de Dieu était déjà présent dans la création de l’humanité (Genèse 1-2), il se posait comme un manteau sur ceux qui avaient trouvés grâce aux yeux de l’Eternel (Prophètes,prêtes du temple et les Rois).Les  prêtes et les Rois étaient oints d’huile d’onction (Exode 30-23 :24) représentant le Saint-Esprit avant leur entrée en fonction.

2 Rois 2-7 :14 

Cinquante hommes d’entre les fils des prophètes arrivèrent et s’arrêtèrent à distance vis-à-vis, et eux deux s’arrêtèrent au bord du Jourdain.

2:8

Alors Élie prit son manteau, le roula, et en frappa les eaux, qui se partagèrent çà et là, et ils passèrent tous deux à sec.

2:9

Lorsqu’ils eurent passé, Élie dit à Élisée : Demande ce que tu veux que je fasse pour toi, avant que je sois enlevé d’avec toi. Élisée répondit : Qu’il y ait sur moi, je te prie, une double portion de ton esprit !

2:10

Élie dit : Tu demandes une chose difficile. Mais si tu me vois pendant que je serai enlevé d’avec toi, cela t’arrivera ainsi ; sinon, cela n’arrivera pas.

2:11

Comme ils continuaient à marcher en parlant, voici, un char de feu et des chevaux de feu les séparèrent l’un de l’autre, et Élie monta au ciel dans un tourbillon.

2:12

Élisée regardait et criait : Mon père ! mon père ! Char d’Israël et sa cavalerie ! Et il ne le vit plus. Saisissant alors ses vêtements, il les déchira en deux morceaux,

2:13

et il releva le manteau qu’Élie avait laissé tomber. Puis il retourna, et s’arrêta au bord du Jourdain ;

2:14

il prit le manteau qu’Élie avait laissé tomber, et il en frappa les eaux, et dit : Où est l’Éternel, le Dieu d’Élie ? Lui aussi, il frappa les eaux, qui se partagèrent çà et là, et Élisée passa.

L’image du manteau d’Eli est symbolique de la puissance de la puissance de Dieu.

Remarque : Dans l’ancienne alliance,  tous les dons  étaient possibles à l’exception du parler en langue et d’une possibilité de chasser les démons (  Exode 31 :1-3, 1 Samuel 10-6, 2close1 Samuel 10:1 Saul Anointed King 10:1 Then Samuel took a flask of oil and poured it on his head and kissed him and said, “Has not the Lord anointed you to be prince over his people Israel? And you shall reign over the people of the Lord and you will save them from the hand of their surrounding enemies. And this shall be the sign to you that the Lord has anointed you to be prince over his heritage. 1 Samuel 2 Hannah's Prayer 2:1 And Hannah prayed and said, “My heart exults in the Lord;
my strength is exalted in the Lord.
My mouth derides my enemies,
because I rejoice in your salvation. “There is none holy like the Lord;
there is none besides you;
there is no rock like our God.
Talk no more so very proudly,
let not arrogance come from your mouth;
for the Lord is a God of knowledge,
and by him actions are weighed.
The bows of the mighty are broken,
but the feeble bind on strength.
Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread,
but those who were hungry have ceased to hunger.
The barren has borne seven,
but she who has many children is forlorn.
The Lord kills and brings to life;
he brings down to Sheol and raises up.
The Lord makes poor and makes rich;
he brings low and he exalts.
He raises up the poor from the dust;
he lifts the needy from the ash heap
to make them sit with princes
and inherit a seat of honor.
For the pillars of the earth are the Lord's,
and on them he has set the world. “He will guard the feet of his faithful ones,
but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness,
for not by might shall a man prevail.
10 The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces;
against them he will thunder in heaven.
The Lord will judge the ends of the earth;
he will give strength to his king
and exalt the power of his anointed.”
11 Then Elkanah went home to Ramah. And the boy ministered to the Lord in the presence of Eli the priest. Eli's Worthless Sons 12 Now the sons of Eli were worthless men. They did not know the Lord. 13 The custom of the priests with the people was that when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servant would come, while the meat was boiling, with a three-pronged fork in his hand, 14 and he would thrust it into the pan or kettle or cauldron or pot. All that the fork brought up the priest would take for himself. This is what they did at Shiloh to all the Israelites who came there. 15 Moreover, before the fat was burned, the priest's servant would come and say to the man who was sacrificing, “Give meat for the priest to roast, for he will not accept boiled meat from you but only raw.” 16 And if the man said to him, “Let them burn the fat first, and then take as much as you wish,” he would say, “No, you must give it now, and if not, I will take it by force.” 17 Thus the sin of the young men was very great in the sight of the Lord, for the men treated the offering of the Lord with contempt. 18 Samuel was ministering before the Lord, a boy clothed with a linen ephod. 19 And his mother used to make for him a little robe and take it to him each year when she went up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice. 20 Then Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, and say, “May the Lord give you children by this woman for the petition she asked of the Lord.” So then they would return to their home. 21 Indeed the Lord visited Hannah, and she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. And the young man Samuel grew in the presence of the Lord. Eli Rebukes His Sons 22 Now Eli was very old, and he kept hearing all that his sons were doing to all Israel, and how they lay with the women who were serving at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 23 And he said to them, “Why do you do such things? For I hear of your evil dealings from all the people. 24 No, my sons; it is no good report that I hear the people of the Lord spreading abroad. 25 If someone sins against a man, God will mediate for him, but if someone sins against the Lord, who can intercede for him?” But they would not listen to the voice of their father, for it was the will of the Lord to put them to death. 26 Now the young man Samuel continued to grow both in stature and in favor with the Lord and also with man. The Lord Rejects Eli's Household 27 And there came a man of God to Eli and said to him, “Thus the Lord has said, ‘Did I indeed reveal myself to the house of your father when they were in Egypt subject to the house of Pharaoh? 28 Did I choose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to go up to my altar, to burn incense, to wear an ephod before me? I gave to the house of your father all my offerings by fire from the people of Israel. 29 Why then do you scorn my sacrifices and my offerings that I commanded, and honor your sons above me by fattening yourselves on the choicest parts of every offering of my people Israel?’ 30 Therefore the Lord, the God of Israel, declares: ‘I promised that your house and the house of your father should go in and out before me forever,’ but now the Lord declares: ‘Far be it from me, for those who honor me I will honor, and those who despise me shall be lightly esteemed. 31 Behold, the days are coming when I will cut off your strength and the strength of your father's house, so that there will not be an old man in your house. 32 Then in distress you will look with envious eye on all the prosperity that shall be bestowed on Israel, and there shall not be an old man in your house forever. 33 The only one of you whom I shall not cut off from my altar shall be spared to weep his eyes out to grieve his heart, and all the descendants of your house shall die by the sword of men. 34 And this that shall come upon your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, shall be the sign to you: both of them shall die on the same day. 35 And I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who shall do according to what is in my heart and in my mind. And I will build him a sure house, and he shall go in and out before my anointed forever. 36 And everyone who is left in your house shall come to implore him for a piece of silver or a loaf of bread and shall say, “Please put me in one of the priests' places, that I may eat a morsel of bread.”’” (ESV)

Rois 5-9 :14 ,Exode 14-1 :31…)

II.1-Le début de l’Eglise primitive

L’arrivé du Saint-Esprit dans l’esprit des disciples le Jour de pentecôte sonne le début  de l’église.  Jésus-Christ juste avant son enlèvement ordonne aux disciples de se rendre à Jérusalem et t’attendre de recevoir le Saint-Esprit .

Actes 1 :5-8 

Car Jean a baptisé d’eau, mais vous, dans peu de jours, vous serez baptisés du Saint Esprit.

1:6

Alors les apôtres réunis lui demandèrent : Seigneur, est-ce en ce temps que tu rétabliras le royaume d’Israël ?

1:7

Il leur répondit : Ce n’est pas à vous de connaître les temps ou les moments que le Père a fixés de sa propre autorité.

1:8

Mais vous recevrez une puissance, le Saint Esprit survenant sur vous, et vous serez mes témoins à Jérusalem, dans toute la Judée, dans la Samarie, et jusqu’aux extrémités de la terre.

Actes 2-1 :4 

Le jour de la Pentecôte, ils étaient tous ensemble dans le même lieu.

2:2

Tout à coup il vint du ciel un bruit comme celui d’un vent impétueux, et il remplit toute la maison où ils étaient assis.

2:3

Des langues, semblables à des langues de feu, leur apparurent, séparées les unes des autres, et se posèrent sur chacun d’eux.

2:4

Et ils furent tous remplis du Saint Esprit, et se mirent à parler en d’autres langues, selon que l’Esprit leur donnait de s’exprimer.

  • Les disciples priaient depuis une dizaine de Jours   à Jérusalem , quand soudain survint sur eux le Saint-Esprit  le Jour de la fête de la moisson . La manifestation du Saint-Esprit en eux se fit par le parler en des langues auditibles.

Actes 12-1 :8

Vers le même temps, le roi Hérode se mit à maltraiter quelques membres de l’Église,

12:2

et il fit mourir par l’épée Jacques, frère de Jean.

12:3

Voyant que cela était agréable aux Juifs, il fit encore arrêter Pierre. -C’était pendant les jours des pains sans levain. –

12:4

Après l’avoir saisi et jeté en prison, il le mit sous la garde de quatre escouades de quatre soldats chacune, avec l’intention de le faire comparaître devant le peuple après la Pâque.

12:5

Pierre donc était gardé dans la prison ; et l’Église ne cessait d’adresser pour lui des prières à Dieu.

12:6

La nuit qui précéda le jour où Hérode allait le faire comparaître, Pierre, lié de deux chaînes, dormait entre deux soldats ; et des sentinelles devant la porte gardaient la prison.

12:7

Et voici, un ange du Seigneur survint, et une lumière brilla dans la prison. L’ange réveilla Pierre, en le frappant au côté, et en disant : Lève-toi promptement ! Les chaînes tombèrent de ses mains.

12:8

Et l’ange lui dit : Mets ta ceinture et tes sandales. Et il fit ainsi. L’ange lui dit encore : Enveloppe-toi de ton manteau, et suis-moi.

A travers ce texte, la ceinture de pierre fait allusion à la puissance du seigneur et ses sandales ,le zèle pour le Seigneur.

Remarque :  Le Saint Esprit en nous (Galates 4 :6 ), nous confère neuf types de dons (1 Corinthiens 12-4 :10) et des nouvelles capacités (Marc 16-16 :18).

III-Condition pour recevoir le Saint-Esprit

  •  IL FAUT Y CROIRE SANS RÉSERVE

La foi est l’élément indispensable pour l’accomplissement des choses que Dieu nous promet.

Hébreux 11 :6

Or sans la foi il est impossible de lui être agréable ; car il faut que celui qui s’approche de Dieu croie que Dieu existe, et qu’il est le rémunérateur de ceux qui le cherchent.

Jacques-1-6 :8 

Mais qu’il l’a demande avec foi, sans douter ; car celui qui doute est semblable au flot de la mer, agité par le vent et poussé de côté et d’autre.

1:7

Qu’un tel homme ne s’imagine pas qu’il recevra quelque chose du Seigneur :

1:8

c’est un homme irrésolu, inconstant dans toutes ses voies.

Or, pour croire correctement, il faut un enseignement correct. La foi vient de ce qu’on entend : la Parole de Christ…

Romains 10:17 

Ainsi la foi vient de ce qu’on entend, et ce qu’on entend vient de la parole de Christ.

Jean 7-37 :39 

Le dernier jour, le grand jour de la fête, Jésus, se tenant debout, s’écria : Si quelqu’un a soif, qu’il vienne à moi, et qu’il boive.

7:38

Celui qui croit en moi, des fleuves d’eau vive couleront de son sein, comme dit l’Écriture.

7:39

Il dit cela de l’Esprit que devaient recevoir ceux qui croiraient en lui ; car l’Esprit n’était pas encore, parce que Jésus n’avait pas encore été glorifié.

  • La prière à Dieu pour le recevoir

Luc 11-13

Si donc, méchants comme vous l’êtes, vous savez donner de bonnes choses à vos enfants, à combien plus forte raison le Père céleste donnera-t-il le Saint Esprit à ceux qui le lui demandent.

Actes 10-44 

Comme Pierre prononçait encore ces mots, le Saint Esprit descendit sur tous ceux qui écoutaient la parole.

10:45

Tous les fidèles circoncis qui étaient venus avec Pierre furent étonnés de ce que le don du Saint Esprit était aussi répandu sur les païens.

10:46

Car ils les entendaient parler en langues et glorifier Dieu.

10:47

Alors Pierre dit : Peut-on refuser l’eau du baptême à ceux qui ont reçu le Saint Esprit aussi bien que nous ?

10:48

Et il ordonna qu’ils fussent baptisés au nom du Seigneur. Sur quoi ils le prièrent de rester quelques jours auprès d’eux.

  • Par imposition des mains

Actes 8-15 :17

Ceux-ci, arrivés chez les Samaritains, prièrent pour eux, afin qu’ils reçussent le Saint Esprit.

8:16

Car il n’était encore descendu sur aucun d’eux ; ils avaient seulement été baptisés au nom du Seigneur Jésus.

8:17

Alors Pierre et Jean leur imposèrent les mains, et ils reçurent le Saint Esprit.

Dans ce contexte,   le baptême d’eau survint avant le baptême du Saint-Esprit.

Actes 19-1 :6

Pendant qu’Apollos était à Corinthe, Paul, après avoir parcouru les hautes provinces de l’Asie, arriva à Éphèse. Ayant rencontré quelques disciples, il leur dit :

19:2

Avez-vous reçu le Saint Esprit, quand vous avez cru ? Ils lui répondirent : Nous n’avons pas même entendu dire qu’il y ait un Saint Esprit.

19:3

Il dit : De quel baptême avez-vous donc été baptisés ? Et ils répondirent : Du baptême de Jean.

19:4

Alors Paul dit : Jean a baptisé du baptême de repentance, disant au peuple de croire en celui qui venait après lui, c’est-à-dire, en Jésus.

19:5

Sur ces paroles, ils furent baptisés au nom du Seigneur Jésus.

19:6

Lorsque Paul leur eut imposé les mains, le Saint Esprit vint sur eux, et ils parlaient en langues et prophétisaient.

En somme :  Le baptême du Saint-Esprit est une expérience spirituelle qui nécessite de croire sans réserve à Dieu.Nous devons aspirer aux dons les meilleurs (1 corinthiens 12-31) pour être sensibles aux choses de l’esprit,l’édification de l’église et être un instrument de Dieu
