When one is born again (from above), the Holy Spirit comes INSIDE (7 passages) “… that He may abide with you forever -- the Spirit of truth … you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” (John 14:16-17) “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.” (Romans 8:9) “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you … through His Spirit who dwells in you.” (Romans 8:11) “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16) “And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts …” (Galatians 4:6) “That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.” (2 Timothy 1:14) “And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.” (1 John 3:24) But, this has nothing to do with being “filled” with the Holy Spirit. When one is baptized with the Holy Spirit, the Spirit comes UPON (7 passages) “Behold, I (will) send the promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with (spiritual) power from on high.” (Luke 24:49) Luke gives more details about the above verse: “He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father … you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit … you shall receive (spiritual) power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me … to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:4-8) “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come … Then 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) “… the Holy Spirit fell upon all those (Gentiles) who heard the word … the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they (Peter and his companions) heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter asked, ‘Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized (in water) who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?’ ” (Acts 10:44-48) Peter recalls the 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 us when we believed on the Lord Jesus Christ …” (Acts 11:15-17) “… they (the Ephesian disciples) were (water) baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied …” (Acts 19:5-6) Normally, manifestations confirm the baptism with the Holy Spirit: “Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them*, who when they had come down, prayed for them* that they* might receive the Holy Spirit. For as yet He (the Holy Spirit) had fallen upon none of them*. They* had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid hands on them*, and they* received the Holy Spirit. And when Simon saw that through the laying on of hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money …”(Acts 8:14-18) * the Samarians The Samarians had received, believed, and had been water-baptized. Peter and John laid hands on them and prayed that they be Spirit-baptized. And poor Simon saw the results.
