3-8-2016 The Gift Of The Holy Spirit

The church of Christ began when the Apostles commanded “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:38 NKJV). “The gift of the Holy Spirit” was only given by the laying on of the Apostles’ hands. Later, when Samaritans “were baptized,” Peter and John were sent to them, “who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. For as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit” (Acts 8:15-17 NKJV). There are no Apostles today to give “the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
