The gift of the Holy Ghost is:

The promise of the Father,
Luke 24:49,
Acts 1:4,5,
Isaiah 44:3,
Joel 2:28,29

The Spirit of the Father,
Matthew 10:20

And of his Son, Jesus Christ.
Galatians 4:6,
Philippians 1:19,
2 Corinthians 13:5,
Colossians 1:27,
John 14:17,18,23

There is only ONE Spirit;
Ephesians 4:4

ONE Lord;
Ephesians 4:5

And the Lord IS that Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:17

The name of the Holy Ghost is Jesus Christ.
Matthew 28:19,
Philippians 1:19,
John 14:26

The Holy Ghost is the seal of the Christian’s inheritance,
Ephesians 1:13, 4:30

And the earnest (token or proof) of the inheritance.
2 Corinthians 5:5,
Ephesians 1:14

The Holy Ghost is part of the New Testament baptism (of water and Spirit),
John 3:5,
Acts 2:38,
1 John 5:8

Is received solely by faith,
Galatians 3:1-14

And is the witness to us that we have truly believed the gospel of Christ.
Hebrews 10:15-17,
1 John 3:24,
John 7:38,39,
Mark 16:17

In the Old Testament, people prophesied when the Spirit of God came upon them.
Numbers 11:25-27
1 Samuel 10:10 & 19:20,21
Luke 1:41-55, 67-79

The Old Testament prophets spoke of a time when ALL God’s people would prophesy.
Numbers 11:29
Joel 2:28,29

Isaiah specifically said it would be with “another tongue” (other tongues).
Isaiah 28:11,12
1 Corinthians 14:21,22

God said that the new covenant would be himself actually dwelling IN his people,
2 Corinthians 6:16
Jeremiah 31:33

Which came to pass on the day of Pentecost in Acts chapter 2.
Acts 2:1-4

From that time forward, ALL who received the Holy Ghost spoke with other tongues.

  • JEWS —————-Acts 2:4 ( including Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brethren , the apostles, and many others) Acts 1:14-15
  • SAMARITANS—–Acts 8:14-19
  • GENTILES———-Acts 10:44-46, 19:1-7
  • PAUL—————–1 Corinthians 14:18, Acts 9:17

Every person needs the Holy Ghost to be saved from sin and the wrath of God.
John 3:5,
1 Corinthians 12:13,
2 Corinthians 13:5,
Romans 8:9

—AND—

Every person can have the Holy Ghost by BELIEVING the promise of God, TURNING from sin to Jesus, and by faith RECEIVING the promise!

John 14:23
