    1 Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

    John 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

    How can a believer thirst or hunger for a continual infilling of the Holy Ghost after salvation without giving the appearance that Jesus has not kept His promise that we would not thirst nor hunger?

    Matthew 9:17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

    How can a believer claim to be a new creature in Christ and thus a new wine bottle able to hold the wine aka the Holy Spirit, as a sealed and preserved believer testifying to his salvation if he is a leaky vessel?

    Being indwelt forever by the Holy Spirit is the same as infilled by the Holy Spirit always. Spirit-filled believers is a testimony that we are saved ever since we had come to and believed in Jesus Christ at the calling of the gospel. There can be no contrary testimony.

    Yes we all do , as that would be obeying the scripture admonish to becontinually refilled by Him,as when we seek our own will, want to wilfully sin, that is NOT us submitting to Him, nor being Spirit filled!

    Luke 24
    49 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.

    It would behoove you brother to look up what "Endued" means. It is not the same as being "indwelt".

    Explain how you seek to be continually refilled by Him, because believers can lean on Jesus Christ at that throne of grace for help in being submissive to Him by abiding in His words; not by seeking to be refilled by Him.

    When we quench/grieve sin against the Spirit, are we then filled with Him?
