His Spirit as in the Book of Acts.Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2:2-4)7/8/2012). Speaking in tongues and other gifts of the Spirit of God were in evidence at the Azusa Street mission. It was not long before the baptism with the Spirit and speaking in tongues spread around the world. While I was ministering in Iceland, the pastor, Einar Gislason, told me that Pentecost came to Iceland about 1930.At about 1950, David DuPlessis brought the Pentecostal message to many mainline Christian churches. At some point the term "Pentecostal" changed to "Charismatic." There now are numerous churches throughout the world that term themselves "Charismatic."The baptism with the Holy Spirit accompanied by speaking in tongues was part of the restoration of the original apostolic doctrine and experiences. This restoration began with the Protestant Reformation and has continued since then. Step by step the Bible doctrines have been restored to the Christian churches.The baptism with the Spirit with speaking in tongues has been firmly established, along with justification by faith rather than by penances; water baptism by immersion; the reality of the born-again experience; and personal holiness. Sanctification as an instantaneous work has been advanced by some, especially by the Nazarene movement.
