Grace and Michael lets start with this and go from there. "I will agree that Acts 1:5 and Mark 1:8 are the same."
Concerning the matter that Jesus will baptize with the Holy Spirit, I would agree. But you must realize that Jesus said what He said in Acts 1:5, not with reference to what John said in Mark 1:8. What He tells his disciples comes directly from Him, as a telling of what is about to happen in the next few days ahead. And concerning the matter of when that actually happened, points to Acts 2:1-4
Now ask yourself this. In those passages what is the spirit being talked of according to all that is mentioned in John concerning what spirit God (Jesus) is going to send? If you read the gospel of John it is made clear that God is promising the indwelling spirit. It is the well of living water the comforter the spirit of truth as seen in the following passages.
John 14:26 (KJV)
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
John 14:16-17 (KJV)
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it : him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
John 16:7 (KJV)
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
Romans 8:9 (KJV)
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Ephesians 1:13-14 (KJV)
13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Ephesians 4:30 (KJV)
30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Which produces fruit in us from within as seen here Galatians 5:22-25 (KJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
That is the spirit that John was unknowing talking of for it was not made clear to him but the gospel of John made clear.
You insist the the spirit that was poured out for everyone was that of empowering the upon but you can not find scripture support that it is the empowering that John was talking about because it is not poured out on everyone and not even if you beg for it according to scripture and that is easily proven by scripture but you can not grasp it. I have shown you that the indwelling is the promise to All men and is given to all that submit to Christ in the baptism in Christ name.
You said "In those passages what is the spirit being talked of according to all that is mentioned in John concerning what spirit God (Jesus) is going to send?
In Acts 1:4-8 we read "And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father
, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me
; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”. So, considering this, and with regards your question, the following scriptures point to the answer:Luke 24:49
49 Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”
Acts 2:33 Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
John 15:26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.
Therefore, the answer to your question is the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of truth, the Helper/Comforter), is the Spirit that was promised to be sent to them.
Now, how about with the other believers, Jews and Gentiles alike? Was there a promise like unto that? What Spirit will be sent to them, whom they shall receive? Is it the same as with those concerned in Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4-8, and Acts 2:1-4?John 7:37 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, “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. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
Galatians 3:14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Ephesians 1:13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,
Based on the above quoted passages, there also is a promise to all believers. And that is the same Spirit, the Holy Spirit.
You said "If you read the gospel of John it is made clear that God is promising the indwelling spirit.
" If you read all the passages I cited and quoted above, it is clear that the promise is simply the Holy Spirit to be sent to both the chosen apostles and all believers to receive.
Now, we know who the Holy Spirit is and what He was sent for to do, in the same way also we know who the Son is and what He was sent for to do. Consider then the promise concerning the Messiah. The promise is not really what He was sent for to do, but rather, it is the Messiah Himself that is the promise. Jesus' works, what He did, such as choosing the twelve and making them disciples, teaching them, preaching the kingdom of God, preaching repentance, raising the dead, healing the sick and various other miraculous works, even giving His life as a sacrifice for sin on the cross, and so much more, aren't the promise, rather He is the promise. Likewise then, concerning the Holy Spirit, the promise is not really what He was sent for to do, but rather, it is the Holy Spirit Himself that is the promise. And likewise also, the Holy Spirit's works, what He does, such as His "coming upon", His "infilling", His "indwelling", His distributing of spiritual gifts like the speaking in different tongues, healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, His convicting the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment, and so much more, aren't the promise, rather He is the promise.
I can not find scripture that supports your view that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is for all and the one of Act 2:1-4 but really quite the opposite.
Lets look into it. It is actually the first of only 2 events of this manner and is the first fulfillment of Joel 2:28-32 where God poured out hi spirit on ALL mankind. The Apostles is the only one that got the empowering while ALL else got the promised indwelling. How do we know this? It is clearly answered in the word.
Peter tells what they are witnessing is the promised outpouring that Joel told of. It was also an answer to Acts 1:8 so they could be a witness that the gospel has came full blown into power. Even though they Killed their Messiah The salvation is ready available. there power was a sign as foretold in Mark 16:17-20
The power only came upon the Apostles and it is clear because when God pours out the spirit upon the gentiles to finish the prophecy of Joel Peter has to look all the way back to when it was first poured out upon them. Everyone else received the indwelling as promised according to Paul when he verified it in Ephesians 1:13-14 above. If it was the baptism of the Holy Ghost as in Acts 2:1-4 as you claim then Peter would not have to have looked all the way back to his day. that only makes sense if you ponder it out. If you were correct and the baptism that Jesus was to baptize with was that of Acts 2:1-4 then everyone would have been baptized in like manner but Peter says different.
You said "I can not find scripture that supports your view that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is for all and the one of Act 2:1-4 but really quite the opposite."
Mark 1:5 Then all the land of Judea, and those from Jerusalem
, went out to him and were all baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins.6 Now John was clothed with camel’s hair and with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. 7 And he preached
, saying, “There comes One after me who is mightier than I, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose. 8 I indeed baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.
Regarding baptism with the Holy Spirit, don't think that it is the "Spirit upon". For there is a lot more than that, that the baptism with the Holy Spirit does to the believer. But what I was saying is that, Acts 1:5 speaks of baptism with the Holy Spirit. And Acts 1:5 is pointing to the Pentecost event in Acts 2:1-4. Now, there is no reason for me to not believe that what happened in Acts 2:1-4 isn't baptism with the Holy Spirit. But that does not mean to say that, baptism with the Holy Spirit must be exactly just as it happened in Acts 2:1-4. Now what is said that transpired there in this baptism with the Holy Spirit in Acts 2:1-4 is that they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Regarding the speaking in different languages, such was a clear manifestation of the Holy Spirit's presence, and an instant evidence for them to behold, that they have received the promised Holy Spirit, just as Jesus told them they would. This is what was told them in Acts 1:8, what you refer to as the "Spirit upon".
Let me ask, in your reading of scriptures, had you read about the disciples concerned in Acts 2:1-4, regarding their baptism in Christ's name? If you did, can you point me to the passage? In Acts 2:1-4, was there baptism in Christ's name of the disciples? If there wasn't, how would that make of the matter as to when baptism with the Holy Spirit is administered by Jesus Christ?
