In the Old Testament the Holy spirit was given rarely upon certain individuals at certain times, although He undoubtedly remained upon a number of persons for an extended duration.

In the New Testament, the Christian believer is permanently indwelt by the Spirit of God, as long as they are a believer in truth and not a counterfeit. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is in fact one distinguishing mark of a person being a believer. 'He who does not have the Spirit is none of His,' i.e. is not a believer. Thus, the work of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament era is of a more permanent and lasting nature than that of the Old.

The phrase "holy spirit" appears three times in the KJV Old Testament. (Psalms 51:11; Isaiah 63:10, 63:11)

we can pass the holy spirit to others , there is difference between spirit passing and anointing a person.

In the King James version the phrase - holy spirit - appears three times in the Old Testament... * Psa 51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. * Isa 63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them. * Isa 63:11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? Where is he that put his holy Spirit within him? The King James version uses the phrase "Holy Ghost" in the New Testament... always capitalised, but that phrase never appears in the Old Testament. The more common Old Testament reference to the Holy Spirit is "Spirit of God," which appears fourteen times.

There is no difference. It is the same thing. The Holy Spirit and the Holy Ghost are the same thing, you can call it one or the other. The Holy Ghost is the ONLY ghost there are no such things as ghosts besides the Holy Ghost

The Old and New Testament of the Holy Bible does not come from memories. The books were written by men under the inspiration of Holy Spirit.

There have been so many teachings about the Holy Ghost that people are confused about exactly what it is. There are many references to "Holy Spirit" in both the Old Testament and the New Testament and it is not crystal clear if all the references are the same spirit. This is one teaching of the church that is not absolutely, beyond doubt, perfectly clear. the holy spirit is part of the trinity. god, jesus, holy spirit. the holy spirit speaks to you telling you how to live your life and helps you through things supporting the right decisions

The gifts are mentioned in the new testament and not in the old testament. Mostly in the books of Paul.

In the New Testament book of Acts, chapter 2 it tells about the Holy Spirit coming as the disciples were gathered for Pentecost.

The answer to this question is unknown since it is not written specifically in the Bible. The Bible mentions the Holy Spirit but not specifically when we receive it. In Psalm David asks God not to take the Holy Spirit away from him, which means David had The Holy Spirit and was afraid God would take it away. In the New Testament Jesus says to his disciples that He is leaving but will send a 'Helper', this is considered to be the Holy Spirit. Pentecost is about the Disciples receiving The Holy Spirit. So, although the Bible talks about The Holy Spirit, it does not tell us when we receive or why.

A:The New Testament is replete with references to the Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost), for example, 1 Thessalonians 4:8 : "He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit."To disbelieve in the Holy Spirit would therefore mean seeing the New Testament as theologically unreliable, which is a difficult position for a Christian to take. On the other hand, belief in the Holy Trinity is somewhat less fundamental to Christian faith.

Nothing more than christianic doctrine ideologies and christianic theories. You'll always need to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
