Knowing that we need to have the
Holy Spirit to be saved, we must ask ourselves, "Do I have the Holy
Spirit?" Even if you have already accepted Jesus Christ into your heart,
you may not have received the Holy Spirit yet.
If God has not given you the sign
of speaking of tongues, you have not received the Holy Spirit. This is why the
apostle Paul asked the believers he met, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit
when you believed?" (Acts 19:2). They replied that they had not received
or heard of the Holy Spirit. After baptizing them, Paul laid hands on them, and
they received the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues.
