If the Holy Spirit is promised to everyone, as the apostle Peter said in Acts 2:39, then why do some people seem to struggle to receive this gift? Dr. David K. Bernard discusses why some spiritual seekers receive the Holy Spirit almost immediately, while others seemingly struggle for months or years without experiencing this biblical promise. He offers practical advice and encouragement for those who are seeking for the Holy Spirit, as well as for spiritual leaders who are praying with them.

If you would like to explore this topic further, Dr. Bernard’s book “The New Birth” (https://pentecostalpublishing.com/products/the-new-birth-volume-2-pentecostal-theology-series) provides an in-depth look at what Oneness Pentecostals believe about the baptism of the Holy Spirit. His book “Spiritual Leadership in the Twenty-First Century” (https://pentecostalpublishing.com/products/spiritual-leadership-in-21st-century) includes a chapter on “Praying with Seekers.”
