Dr Lloyd-Jones on Assurance and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"There is a third type of assurance which is the highest, the most absolute and the most glorious, and which differs essentially from the other two. How? Like this. You notice, in the first two types of assurance, what we are doing is to draw distinctions, as we read the Scriptures perhaps. We arrive at the assurance by a process of reading, understanding, self-examination or self-analysis ...

BUT the glory of this third and highest form of assurance is that it is neither anything that we do, nor any deduction that we draw, but an assurance that is given to us by the blessed Spirit Himself".

Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones - "Joy Unspeakable" - Kingsway, Eastbourne (1995) - (p101)
