Read – At salvation the Holy Spirit came to live inside you – you received the Holy Spirit (2)

Note that the determining factor of whether or not a person belongs to God rests in
whether or not they have the Spirit of God dwelling in them. One can not separate the presence of the
Holy Spirit and salvation – you either have both or neither. To speak of receiving the actual presence of
the Holy Spirit as a separate event from being saved is simply not consistent with the word of God.
