More on the Baptism with the Holy Spirit from Terry Virgo

Today Terry continues to argue for the Baptism with the Spirit as a distinct experience (though one that can happen on the day of someones conversion). He was asked about people who feel that they have received all that there is of the Spirit at conversion:

“I have read so much of Martyn Lloyd-Jones that his answer comes to me, if you have got it where is it? . . The coming of the Holy Spirit on people was so transforming. Even JEsus himself was anointed of the Holy Spirit. . . There is plenty of Scripture to show this as a separate experience. , . I think that we should see God . .there is a faith element, we come to God to receive. The laying on of hands is quite common, and it shouldn’t be ignored. . . Having received the Spirit one should be aware, he is a seal which is meant to be something recognizable. ”
