Acts 2:38;

The Promise: The gift of the Holy Ghost
The Condition: Repentance and baptism for the remission of sins.

38; Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39; For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
40; And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
41; Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. (KJV)

Yes Alithea, you are absolutely correct. There were so many I actually considered making another list of 33...Thanx for including this one. I like to think of the Holy Spirit as a ἀρραβὼν or down payment on salvation too ;)
