This is from the beginning of a long 2-page explanation of “The Baptism With the Holy Spirit”. Preface: John the Baptist tells us that Jesus is the One who baptizes with the Holy Spirit: “He (Jesus) will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 3:11, Mark 1:8, Luke 3:16, John 1:33). More proof of this is found in Acts 2:33. But, this does not refer to the moment of salvation where the Holy Spirit does the “baptizing”: “For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body (the Church)” (1 Corinthians 12:12). Jesus told His group of disciples to wait for the promise of the Father: ”Behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.” (Luke 24:49) Later, Luke described Jesus’ instructions in more detail: “… He commanded them … to wait for the promise of the Father … ‘… for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now … you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me … to the ends of the earth.’ ” (Acts 1:4-8) In the above passages, Jesus was referring to the following future event … Approximately 120 people received Jesus’ promise: “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come … there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:1-4) So, the promise of the Father was the following: the baptism with the Holy Spirit where the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples, filling them, which anointed them with spiritual power! Jesus’ promise was fulfilled: the disciples were (1) born-again and (2) baptized with the Holy Spirit. And today this often is how it goes, but normally a person only receives the first blessing. Peter explained to the Jews what had just happened: ”Therefore (Jesus) being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He (Jesus) poured out this which you now see and hear. … Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” (Acts 2:33-39) So Peter is referring to being both born-again and baptized with the Holy Spirit. Here the first Gentiles received this experience: “While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word … the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God.” (Acts 10:44-46) Peter recalls his experience with the Gentiles above: “… the Holy Spirit fell upon them (the Gentiles), as upon us (the Jews) at the beginning. Then I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, ‘John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ … God gave them the same gift as He gave to us when we believed on the Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 11:15-17) So, we see that “the promise” and “the gift” refer to both salvation and the baptism with the Holy Spirit (with the evidence of speaking in tongues). The preposition “upon” is always used when referring to this baptism (Luke 24:49 and Acts 1:4-8, 2:1-4, 8:14-19, 10:44-48, 11:15-17, 19:5-6). .
