Acts 19:1-6 NIV
While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior
and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples and asked
them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” They
answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”
So Paul asked, “Then what baptism did you receive?” “John’s
baptism,” they replied. Paul said, “John’s baptism was a baptism of
repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him,
that is, in Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of
the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit
came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.
Two Types of Believers:

  1. Believers baptized in water (Salvation)
  2. Believers baptized in water (Salvation) and baptized in the Holy
    Spirit (Power)
    Matthew 3:11 NKJ
    “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is
    coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to
    carry. He will BAPTIZE YOU WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE.”
    Acts 1:4-8 NKJ
    And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not
    to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father,
    “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized
    with water, but you shall be baptized with the HOLY SPIRIT not many
    days from now.” Therefore, when they had come together, they asked
    Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to
    Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or
    seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. 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.”
    John 14:12 NKJ
    “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I
    do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I
    go to My Father.”
    Acts 2:1-4 NKJ
    When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one
    accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven,
    as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they
    were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire,
    and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy
    Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them
    utterance.

Benefits of Being Filled With the Holy Spirit:

  1. New power to share your faith
    Acts 1:8 NKJ
    “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.”
    Acts 4:31 NKJ
    And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled
    together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and
    they spoke the word of God with BOLDNESS.
  2. New prayer language
    Acts 2:4 NKJ
    And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with
    other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
    Acts 10:44-46 NKJ
    While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon
    all those who heard the word. And those of the circumcision who
    believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the
    gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For
    they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God…
    Romans 8:26-27 NKJ
    Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know
    what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes
    intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He
    who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is,
    because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of
    God.
  3. New ability to operate in the gifts of the Spirit
    1 Corinthians 12:4-11 NKJ
    There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are
    differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities
    of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the
    manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for
    to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the
    word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the
    same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another
    the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of
    spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the
    interpretation of tongues. But one and the same spirit works all these
    things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.
