Please give verses and/or reasonings to show that at salvation that we are indwelt with the Holy Spirit, rather than receiving the Holy Spirit later as a second work of Grace. Dictionary for salvation: "1. the saving or freeing from difficulty, danger, destruction or evil. 2. A person or thing that saves or frees. (3) The freeing of the soul from sin and from punishment for sin; redemption." I have read that there could be 3 tenses of salvation: 1) Past tense. Christ paid the Penalty for us on the cross. 2) Present tense. We are being saved from the Power of sin [perhaps daily sanctification?]. 3) Future tense. We will be saved from the Presence of sin. [to be with the Lord in heaven, perhaps?]...Now the dictionary definition of indwelling: "To exist within as an inner activating spirit, force, or principle." [from m-w.com ] My wife and I need to know the verses that this is based upon. Is this really biblical to belive that upon salvation that we are indwelt with the Holy Spirit who comes to live within us? Thanks for reading, Mr. Messy.
