the Gift of the Holy Spirit
Behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you...
until you are clothed with power from on high.
[the Lord Jesus / Gospel Luke 24:49]
......be filled with the Holy Spirit..... [Apostle Paul / Ephesians 5:18]
.....He [Jesus] shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.... [spoken by John the Baptist about Christ Jesus / Gospel Luke 3:16]
......the gift of the Holy Spirit..... [spoken by Peter / Acts 10:45]
.....and tongues of fire appeared resting upon each of them.... & they were all filled with the Holy Spirit..... [Day of Pentecost / Acts 2:1-6]
.....and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.....for the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God shall call to Himself. [Peter / Acts 2:38,39]
....and all the circumcised believers who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out upon the Gentiles also... [Acts 10:45]
........Paul, having passed through the upper country came to Ephesus, and found some disciples, and he said to them, 'Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?' And they said to him, 'No, we have not even heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.' And when Paul laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking with tongues and prophesying..... [Acts 19:1-6].
A word of encouragement to believers from Rob Conrad:
Scripturally, the terms 'filled with the Holy Spirit', 'baptized in the fire of the Holy Spirit' and receiving the 'power' of God are synonymous with the 'Gift of the Holy Spirit' . (Acts 10:45).
As shown in Acts 19, a born again believer has already received eternal life and the Spirit of GOD indwelling within in their acceptance of Christ as Savior BUT may not yet have been 'filled' with the power of God which is the OVERFLOWING of the indwelling Spirit to the 'outside' anointing of fire and power as on the Day of Pentecost. This experience of being filled to overflowing with the fulness of God's Spirit, His power and His fire is when the believer receives ALL of what God has of Himself 'upon' the 'outside' of the believer's vessel, being 'clothed with power' as the Lord said has been promised from the Father. (Luke 24:49).
When a believer has this experience, he will know immediately as he asks the Lord directly to fill him with the power of the Holy Spirit and fire. Then, that believer will be 'on fire' spiritually like the New Testa- ment clearly proclaims is available right now for every believer who thirsts for the fulness of God's Spirit. It is the precious GIFT of the Holy Spirit to every believer. The Lord Jesus Himself is the Baptizer in the fire of the Holy Spirit. [Luke 3:16].

"But, you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." [spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ / recorded in the book of Acts 1:8]
A PROMISE of God to every believer
