Acts 8:18-19 King James Version (KJV)
18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,
19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.

Acts 8:18-19 Amplified Bible (AMP)

18 Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money, 19 saying, “Give me this authority and power too, so that anyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.”

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

18 To think the power of the Spirit can be bought with money or with anything we have is deceit, it has been paid for by the blood of Christ and nothing we can do can gain it. The Holy Spirit is something that we as believers are all given.

19 He wanted to give away the Holy Spirit, they were not choosing who they gave the Spirit to God chose them and just let them know, we in no way can determine who receives the gospel and Jesus and who rejects Him.
