Holy Spirit falls on those hearing the Word

Scripture references

Acts 10:44–48 (ASV 1901)

44While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all them that heard the word. 45And they of the circumcision that believed were amazed, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Spirit. 46For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 47Can any man forbid the water, that these should not be baptized, who have received the Holy Spirit as well as we? 48And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

Acts 11:15 (ASV 1901)

15And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them, even as on us at the beginning.
