I read a Bible story about this magician who witnessed the miraculous powers of the Holy Spirit and asked to purchase the same.

Oops. Those powers were purchased with the blood of Jesus Christ. Wrong question….

Acts 8:18-19 (NLT)

18 When Simon saw that the Spirit was given when the apostles laid their hands on people, he offered them money to buy this power. 19 “Let me have this power, too,” he exclaimed, “so that when I lay my hands on people, they will receive the Holy Spirit!”
