It’s not about saying some non-Biblical sinners prayer and ask God to come into your heart and think that you are automatically saved and filled with His Spirit? It actually requires much more than that!
You don’t just decide that you want to ask God to come in your heart and say a few words or repeat some words that a man is telling you to? Then once you are done, he then tells you that you are saved! Wrong! This procedure is not Biblical, not how it is done. Actually, you must first hear the call of God, God calling you to Him, and respond as such! Then you must repent, and be baptised, immersed in water.
If the Gospel is for us today, then the Holy Spirit is for us as well!
If God called you, and you answered, you must repent, be baptised in water, then you would be filled with the Holy Spirit, speak in tongues, or at least have the gift of healing, interpretation, wisdom, knowledge, prophecy, if not, then did God really call you? Did God really fill you with the Holy Spirit? Did you answer the call? You must answer the call of God, not ask him to simply come into your heart to be your personal Saviour! For the gift of the Holy Spirit is to all that are afar off, as many as the LORD God shall call.
You must be of a broken and contrite heart
