“And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:17 The Lord hath sent me - Ananias does not tell Saul all which Christ had said concerning him. It was not expedient that he should know yet to how great a dignity he was called.
Ac 9:17 Ananias . . . putting his hands on him. Not to convey a gift, but as a friendly act, significant of God's blessing. That thou mightest receive thy sight. His sight returned immediately after (Ac 9:18). And be filled with the Holy Ghost. There is no proof whatever that any spiritual gifts were imparted, nor that any but apostles could confer these gifts (see PNT "Ac 6:8"), and Paul always asserted that he received his signs of apostleship, not of men, but of Christ. See Ga 1:1,11,12. The being "filled with the Holy Spirit" took place after the baptism at the hands of Ananias.
