THE HOLY SPIRIT TODAY - by Pastor J. C. O'Hair

The Holy Spirit was first WITH the disciples, who lived  with Christ on earth, and later IN them. When Christ went  back to heaven, He sent the Holy Spirit down from heaven  (I Peter 1:12). Members of the Body of Christ, saved during  the reign and dispensation of grace, could not have an  experience like that of the disciples who lived with Christ both  before and after His resurrection. Today the very moment the  sinner believes the gospel of grace and receives Christ, he  receives the Holy Spirit within and is immediatley sealed by  the Holy Spirit unto the day of redemption (Ephesians 4:30,  1:13 and 14). The moment the believer comes to Calvary, he is  sealed, anointed, and baptized with the Holy Spirit; and in this  age of grace, the sealing, anointing and baptizing with (or in  or by) the Holy Spirit is always a past experience and not a  religious experience to strive for or pray for or tarry for.

But the believer may and should obey Ephesians 5:18:  "And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled  with the Spirit."

In I Corinthians 12:13, we learn of the Holy Spirit's work  in baptizing the believer into the Body of Christ. In Ephesians  1:19, we learn that the mighty power of God is for every  member of the Body of Christ, who is also blessed with every  spiritual blessing in the heavenlies (Ephesians 1:3).

 How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
