Joh 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth (The Holy Spirit); whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. With this in mind, to me it is saying that an unbeliever cannot receive the Holy Ghost.
OK, next verse. Act 10:43 (Peter said) To him give all the prophets witness, that through His name whosoever believeth in Him (Jesus) shall receive remission of sins. (What? no water baptism to receive remission of sins?)Act 10:44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. (To have the Holy Ghost fall on them, don’t they have to be saved at this point?)Act 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. (Exactly what is this great gift?)
Does the gift of God have to do with Living Water we read of in Jn 4:10.
How about Eternal Life in Rom 6:23?
And then we read in 2Ti 1:6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands; We can even receive the GOD of PEACE.
Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Last for this post is the question: Act 10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? (If baptism is necessary for salvation, how could those Gentiles have received the Holy Ghost before they completed their salvation with water baptism?)
