By Rev. Dr. Curian Kaniyamparambil
It is the reception of the Holy Spirit. People received the Holy Spirit in different forms:
a) Holy Spirit abided upon our Lord in the form of a dove.
b) The Holy Spirit acted on the Apostles when our Lord breathed on them.
c) On the apostles as tongs of fire.
d) The Samaritans and Ephesians received the Holy Spirit when the apostles laid their hands on them.
e) During the apostolic times by chrism - But you have an anointing (KJV and Scofield uses the word unction) from the Holy One, and you know all things. (1 John 2:20)
