This is distinct from baptism with water. John's baptism is contrasted with it, Acts 11:16; Matthew 3:11 . Christian baptism, though distinct, was in view of the reception of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38 ), but does not confer it. Acts 19:5,6 . Baptism of the Holy Spirit took place at Pentecost: the Lord said to His disciples, "Ye shall be baptised with the Holy Ghost not many days hence," Acts 1:5; so that at Pentecost the saints were all baptised by the one Spirit into one body. 1 Corinthians 12:13 . This agrees with the church having been begun at Pentecost, and tells us that no one can be a part of the body of Christ until he is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, being initiated into the one body formed, characterised, by the baptism of the Holy Spirit once for all.
