The Baptism of the Spirit, Then and Now

Heard this question, and thought it was one to be concidered.

What is the difference in the baptism of the Spirit in Acts 2, and the baptism of the Spirit today?


Please consider that the Acts 2 baptism resulted in Cites being turned upside down, notable healing and miracles taking place, and persecutions on the believers being a result.

Very good question for a thread starter...

I am on my way out of the door (almost), but am interested in reading the responses, and chiming in of course.

The baptism of the Spirit is no different. What is different is how people allow that Spirit to lead them!

The Holy Ghost is the same.

There are other factors that are different though, things in the realm of humanity and culture.

Amen. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

The Baptism of the Spirit, also referenced as:
filled with the Holy Ghost
Holy Ghost coming upon
the promise of the Father
Holy Ghost falling upon
receiving the Holy Spirit

happened about 9:00 AM in the Jewish Temple at Jerusalem in the first century on the Jewish feast of Pentecost. About 120 individuals (men and women) were praying and suddenly there came a sound like wind, tongues of fire appeared over their heads, and they began to speak with languages/tongues they did not normally speak.

Throughout the Book of Acts the fire and wind were not repeated but it is recorded in some cases that the speaking with tongues did occur.

Today when people receive the Holy Ghost Baptism (HGB) we do not expect the sound of wind and the appearance of fire but we do expect that speaking with tongues will occur at the HGB or soon afterwards.

Well one thing for sure they didn't make a list of standards....

Dont forget the miracles we see being done in the book of Acts are almost exclusively being done by the APOSTLES. Should we as the normal Christian expect to have as great an anointing as Apostles?

Yes. The apostles were normal Christians...anything less is subnormal.
