Mark 1:8 " . . . I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
(John the baptist speaking about Christ)
Acts 1:4-5 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit."
Acts 2:1-4, 11
