Q 1. When we refer to the Apostolic age, we are referring to the time the Apostles of Christ walked the Earth. Since they all died, the Apostolic period has ended.

Q 2. Where does the Bible say everyone will know instantly when they receive the Holy Spirit? Where does it say that everyone who receives the Holy Spirit immediately shows an outward sign to evidence the event?

Personally, I prefer when God works through me without my knowledge.

When we speak for God, we speak in love. When the Spirit acts through us, we act with love. When our motives are anything but love, we should check our hearts. Rudely accusing and belittling those that claim the blood is not acting in love. So, I ask myself each time, "If what this person is saying is truth, then why aren't they saying it with love?" And I'm left to conclude that whether their knowledge reflects truth or falsehood, if they do not have love, they are not speaking for God.
Amen to that Banarenth. Well said. Thank you.

What an awesome experience! Does this mean that the Holy Spirit intends to
use you in the future? I would say so.

Thanks for posting this, from a new humble soldier in the Lord's army.

My understanding is that:-

God has sent the Holy Spirit to us (In us) for His perposes, so that we might be tools that He can use when & how He sees fit.

Hmmm I c where ur coming from G , that may be good , but i like to see in my own eyes and in my heart that God is moving through me to the peeps around me. It definitely opens my eyes so I can see what I am doing in the physical world.

At first, I don't believe something happens when you get baptized. However, when I got the chance to experience it myself, I felt this unexplainable feeling... I felt this tremendous warmth on my chest and I can still remember how relaxing it is. It's some kind of "mixed" emotions. After which, it doesn't stop there. I noticed a lot of changes in me. For instance, I started to enjoy going to mass on Sundays and church activities or events and I'm starting to fell in love with God through the Holy Spirit.
