My thoughts are that the trinitarian idea rests in all aspects. In other words, God is onipresent, so then is the HS. These scenario's that we see in scripture do not necessarily show that certain people or events warrant additional blessings (Outside of the examples of theocratic anointings of the OT). Matt 13 talks about bearing fruit 30/60/100; but thats not speaking of the HS.
We are exhorted to "be filled".............Hence, there must be something to it.
Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
Act 9:17 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.
Luk 6:21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
Luk 1:15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.
