Contrary to popular belief, miracles did not pass away with the twelve apostles If anything, the Pentecostal sparks that were lit by them continued to spread throughout the known world In this first installment, the reader will learn how Jesus and the apostles established the concept of the Holy Spirit s abiding presence in the church laying the groundwork for a Christian initiation that included salvation and Spirit baptism The reader will see how spiritual gifts operated through the twelve apostles as they spread Christianity into the known world How bold witnesses, supernatural signs, and practical love resulted in massive expansion of the early church despite extreme persecution How Montanism tried to revive the church from moral decay through strict living and prophetical gifts before it was rejected How Emperor Constantine I reunited the Roman Empire under a new Christian friendly regime How the new state run churches, overrun with sin, caused many to flee to the wilderness resulting in another intense spiritual revival How the Middle Ages featured the mass conversion of much of northern Europe through miracle working missionary monks, followed by a period of great jubilation, mystical faith, and charismatic revivals, and ending with the incredible healing ministry of Vincent Ferrer....

Pentecost To The Present: The Holy Spirit's Enduring Work In The Church-Book 1: Early Prophetic And Spiritual Gifts Movements Reviews
The critics of Pentecostalism and the Charismatic Movement have relied heavily on what one prominent critic has even dared to call “the ‘Historic’ Principle of Biblical Interpretation,” stating primarily if it hasn’t appeared in the history books for two thousand years, it isn’t for today. Hence, the critic has nullified the Word of God in favor of his traditions, and justified it by invention. The author simply opens the books that were actually written throughout the history of the church to reveal that, though critics have always been actively working against the Promise of the Father, the Holy Spirit has not changed in any way toward us, neither in gifts nor in manifestation, and those who seek Him find Him. This series is an extremely well documented examination of the working of the Holy Spirit throughout the church age. The reader will find surprising evidence that what the critics reject might just be the open, outward expression of God’s Love.
I would recommend this book to all Christians. Especially tongue talkers. Learn your biblical heritage that Jesus bled and died for.
The book is fine, but on my kindle it won't show page numbers. I'm trying to do research and would like to cite some information from this book, but it just shows a location number rather than a page. It's really frustrating and I can't figure out how to see the correct page number:( :(
Wonderful opens up the Bible in easy to understand language .
Good and informative read
Very well researched and easy to read
