At what point are Christians sealed with the Holy Spirit?

Ephesians 1:13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were seal with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of glory. (NKJV)

What must occur in order to be sealed with the Holy Spirit?
 You must hear and believe the truth in order to receive the Holy Spirit. (Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?)NKJV

 You must obey in order to receive the Holy Spirit. (Acts 5:32 "And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.)NKJV

 On the Day of Pentecost the three thousand converts received the gift of the Holy Spirit after they obeyed God.
1. They obeyed by believing. (Acts 2:36 "Therefore let the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.) NKJV

2. They obeyed by repenting and being immersed in water. (Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.) NKJV

3. The promise of the Holy Spirit is for all who believe, repent, and are baptized. (Acts 2:39 "For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call) NKJV Everyone who has hears the gospel has been called. Not everyone who has been called will accept the terms for pardon. Some reject God's free gift of salvation and the Holy Spirit of promise.

TERMS FOR PARDON. Faith John 3:16. Confession Romans 10:9. Repentance Acts 3:19 Water Baptism Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16
