The Biblical revelation concerning the Spirit is a progressive unfolding.
It will be noted that all the Old Testament manifestations of the Spirir were according to His free and sovereign action. He came upon whomsoever He would. No way was revealed by which any Israelite might have the Holy Spirit. Today, in this age, the Spirit indwells every believer. This began after Christ's resurrection. The Old Testament had only a promise that at some future time the Spirit should be poured out upon all flesh (Joel 2:28). The fulfillment of that promise did not begin until Pentecost (Acts 2:16-18)
