Coming Wave of the Holy Spirit (25). Jesus says in Luke 11:9–10, 13b (Amplified Bible) “So I say to you, ask and keep on asking, and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking, and you will find; knock and keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking [persistently], receives; and he who keeps on seeking [persistently], finds; and to him who keeps on knocking [persistently], the door will be opened.” “…how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask and continue to ask Him!”
While the indwelling of the Holy Spirit comes at our regeneration and re-birth, most often the Promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a separate and subsequent event. Scripture outlines certain conditions that must be present in a believer’s heart before the Lord will give this blessing, and Jesus instructs us how we are to ask for this gift.
