Where? You seem tres optimistic. A good thing no doubt. All who receive Christ as their Lord and Savior are graced with the HS. And someone laying their hands on you does not do it for you.
Every believer receives the Holy Spirit at the moment of conversion!Has the teacher in this video received the baptism of the Holy Spirit?
The spiritual gifts identified in Romans 12 are prophesying, serving, teaching, encouraging, giving, leadership, and mercy.If a person is a Christian, he has Holy Spirit dwelling in him. For the special gifting that comes with the Holy Spirit's baptism, and empowerment, we/he merely need to ask and submit to it. People who speak in tongues are from all levels of spiritual maturity. Holy Spirit is generous with Himself, even though some people misuse what He gives us. It is for us to be careful that we do not.
THANK GOD WE HAVE GOTTEN AWAY FROM THE X'S AND LIKES'S AND DISLIKES AND OPTOMISTIC AND ON AND ON AND ON!!!!!!Every believer receives the Holy Spirit at the moment of conversion!
1 Corth. 12:13........
"For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit".
All believers have the same spirit—the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 1:13 is more specific about the exact moment we receive the Holy Spirit: "In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit."
Rom. 8:9..........explains simply that
"Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him."
Absolutely agreed! They became nothing more than "weapon" which was weilded from those that did not have the ability to speak to others clearly and effectually.Actually Where - from you I did. I mainly didn't like the disagree or dislike buttons. One person went thru all my posts and slapped them with whatever disagree? So I slapped them back (less) but it was stupid and I took them all off - unasked. The other didn't bother. If you disagree - type it out. Let everyone know, not just the target. I never used the button again - either of them.
