This is the 2nd Phase. The Holy Spirit IN US: The moment our eyes have been opened to our need of Christ, the Holy Spirit comes and does the work of repentance in the heart of the sinner. The moment the miracle of salvation takes place, the work of the Spirit of God goes from being WITH US to living IN US. This is the point when the believer becomes the residence of God. The Holy Spirit comes to live inside the heart of the believer making us His building (1 Cor. 3), His temple (1 Cor. 3) and His house (Eph. 2).
"And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with your forever - the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know HIm for He dwells with you and will be in you." (John 1:16-17)
"Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, Whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's." (1 Cor.6:19-20)
