Would you please provide scripture indicating that receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and being filled with the Spirit are different experiences.
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. (Acts 2:38)
THE FILLING OF THE HOLY GHOST (SUBSEQUENT TO THE GIFT)
And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. (Acts 4:31)
Note: While it appears that Christian baptism is a requirement for receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38), Acts 10 makes it clear that water baptism is subsequent to the baptism with the Holy Spirit (which is the same as the gift of the Holy Ghost).
