Here he is making a clear distinction between the way that he and all those in the Old Testament age of Israel experienced the Spirit, …
… and the outpouring of the Spirit that will come as a result of the life, death and resurrection, ascension and session of Jesus.
1. In the Church Age each and every believer will receive the outpouring, the gift, the permanent indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Without measure.
This is different from the Old Testament when a few chosen men received the Spirit resting on them temporarily to perform a specific task.
For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.
2. He does not measure out a little of the Spirit here, a little there. He POURS OUT the Spirit in rivers of living water. Unlimited potential for whomever receives the Spirit.
What are some of the blessings that flow from the Spirit as rivers of living water?
All truth is available now, JOH 16:13.
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
Love, the same love that God has for His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, ROM 5:5.
Not only is love poured out, but so too is joy.
