Cowley’s Talks on Doctrine, pg. 110; “Having shown that faith, repentance and baptism are essential to the remission of sins, let us now consider the reception of the Holy Spirit. That this should follow, and not precede, the birth of the water must be evident to every thoughtful person.”
Acts 2:41; “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.”
The Holy Spirit doesn’t have to wait on a man-made ordinance to dwell inside a believer.
