is The Holy Ghost or The Holy Spirit
Ghost/Spirit, is a spiritual part of God and an entity in its own
right, which we receive if we truly repent and 'Receive the Baptism'
(as I call it), having prayed for it. We cannot separate a piece
of spirit from our spirit, which is also us, as we are human; but God
So the holy
ghost/spirit was sent upon Mary and she conceived the son of God,
though she is not the mother of God, as God was long before Mary and
she did not bear God. This same Holy Ghost/Spirit will
guide you in understanding the Gospel if you read it in truth to find
out the truth, as it is God who calls all people to the Gospel.
Whether you believe this or not, has no bearing on your salvation: for
to do so is not a breach of a commandment.
The Apostles were Baptized with Fire and the Holy Ghost, unlike the other's back then and us today, who baptize with water.
They then laid hands upon the followers of Christ: the baptized Christians, passing the Holy Ghost unto them.
Before one has
been baptized ( meaning first repenting, then baptizing ) with the
Baptism of Repentance, one cannot receive the Holy Ghost. Read
this truth below. Jesus baptized, then prayed, then received the
Holy Ghost. We then read that the same happened to the believers that
followed him - the Christians.
LUK 11: 13
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children:
how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them
LUK 3: 21
Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also
being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,
22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove
upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved
Son; in thee I am well pleased.
ACT 19: 1
And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having
passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain
2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye
believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether
there be any Holy Ghost.
ACT 19: 3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.
4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of
repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him
which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
ACT 19: 5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came
on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.
It is a fact
that those who receive the Holy Ghost back then started to speak with
tongues. This ability was given to them so that they could preach in
all tongues ( all languages ). I have not received any
information of any one of the very few Christians today that would have
received this ability also: and so I believe that we today do not
receive this with the Holy Ghost.
Also, read the succession of the holy ghost to 'Believers' of today.
