The Holy Spirit

Jesus Christ said, “I will pray the Father, and He will give
you another Helper (Comforter), and He may abide with you forever” (John 14:16).

Also read John 16:13, 14.
When then do I get this wonderful gift?

When Christ’s righteousness is imputed to the believer, the Holy Spirit is imparted.

The Holy Spirit is not given because of our attainment but Christ’s atonement.

“Did you not receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” (Acts 19:2)

“If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).

Before the ascension Christ did the baptizing and the Holy Spirit was the sphere (Matt. 3:11).

The Holy Spirit was His ascension gift (John 16:7).

After the ascension, the Holy Spirit does the baptizing and the spiritual body of Christ is the sphere (I Cor. 13:12).

”For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body” (I Cor. 12:13).

“Do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit” (Eph 5:18).

When filled, the life produces the “fruit of the Spirit” (Gal. 5: 22, 23).

A Christian is either “filled” or grieving (Eph 4:30) or quenching (I Thess. 5:19).
