"PENTECOST for DESPISED OUTCASTS" -Arthur Booth-Clibborn. An early pioneer of the Pentecostal movement of 100 years ago, Arthur Booth-Clibborn wrote:- "Any cheapening of the price of Pentecost would be a disaster of untold magnitude. The company in the upper room, upon whom Pentecost fell, had paid for it the highest price. In this they approached as near as possible to Him who had paid the supreme price in order to send it. Do we ever really adequately realize how utterly lost to this world, how completely despised, rejected and outcast was that company? Their master and leader had just passed, so to speak, through the hangmans rope, at the hands of the highest civilization of the day. Their Calvary was complete, and so a complete Pentecost came to match it. The latter will resemble the former in completeness. We may, therefore, each of us say to ourselves: As thy cross, so will thy Pentecost be. Gods way to Pentecost was via Calvary. Individually it must be so today also. The purity and fullness of the individual Pentecost must depend upon the completeness of the individual Calvary. This is an unalterable principle. -Please comment on this article at the website below- http://www.johnthebaptisttv.com/ SOURCE: The book "Azusa Street" by Frank Bartleman (-one of the most powerful Revival books ever written).
