THIRD: The Holy Spirit UPON US: The Holy Spirit comes upon us, the born again believer after our salvation experience. This was the promise Jesus was referring to His disciples to. He commanded them not to depart from the Jerusalem but to remain in the city until they were filled by the Spirit of God. In this stage, the believer becomes a vessel the spirit cananoint and use to testify of Jesus' salvation, by confirming His word with signs, wonders and miracles following. The Holy Spirit coming upon us is to EMPOWER the believer with the Spirit's ability to flow and work through us.
“... for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now...But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts1:5,8
“. . .how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”Acts 10:38
