JOHN 20:20-22 (When the apostles were born-again)

JOHN 20:20-22

The apostles of Jesus healed the sick and cast out demons in the
name of Jesus; but they did not have the indwelling Holy Spirit
until after Christ's resurrection:

"In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.  He that
believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall
flow rivers of living water.

(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him
should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that
Jesus was not yet glorified.)"  John 7:37-39

On the evening of His resurrection Jesus breathed upon the
disciples and they received the indwelling Holy Spirit.  That was
when they were born-again and became a new creation!

"...He showed unto them his hands and his side.  Then were
the  disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.  'Then said
Jesus to them  again, Peace be unto you:  as my Father hath
sent me, even so send I  you.'  And when he had said this,
he breathed on them, and saith unto  them, 'RECEIVE YE THE
HOLY GHOST.'" John 20:20-22
