The baptism of the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation is the basis for (1) the believer's position "in Christ" as justified in right standing before God and (2) the believer's "participation" in the Lord's penal sacrifice whereby God's justice is satisfied. Apart from this singular baptism, the righteousness of Christ could never be applied to the believer and God could not be both just and the justiifier of the ungodly.
