stayed on Thee, because He trusteth in Thee.” We shall have wisdom, righ-
teousness and power, for God is righteous in all His ways and holy in all His
acts. This holiness means perfect love in our hearts, perfect love that casteth
out fear.
Brother Paul says in order to become holy and live a holy life, we should
abstain from all appearance of evil. Then the apostle adds, “And the very
God of peace sanctify you wholly, and I pray God your whole spirit and soul
and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
(I Thess. 5:22, 23.) “To the end He may establish your hearts unblameable
in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus
Christ with all His saints.” (I Thess. 3:13.) Bless His holy name. O beloved,
after you have received the light, it is holiness or hell. God is calling for men
and women in these days that will live a holy life free from sin. We should
remain before God until His all-cleansing Blood makes us holy, body, soul,
and spirit.

26. THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST
(AF, May 1908, 3)
The Azusa standard of the baptism with the Holy Ghost is according to the
Bible in Acts 1:5, 8; Acts 2:4 and Luke 24:49. Bless His holy name. Hallelu-
jah to the Lamb for the baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire and speaking in
tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
Jesus gave the church at Pentecost the great lesson of how to carry on a
revival, and it would be well for every church to follow Jesus’ standard of the
baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire.
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one
accord in one place.” O beloved, there is where the secret is: one accord,
one place, one heart, one soul, one mind, one prayer. If God can get a
people anywhere in one accord and in one place, of one heart, mind, and
soul, believing for this great power, it will fall and Pentecostal results will
follow. Glory to God!
Apostolic Faith doctrine means one accord, one soul, one heart. May God
help every child of His to live in Jesus’ prayer: “That they all may be one, as
Thou, Father, art in Me and I in Thee; that they all may be one in us; that
the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.” Praise God! O how my heart
cries out to God in these days that He would make every child of His see
the necessity of living in the 17th chapter of John, that we may be one in the
body of Christ, as Jesus has prayed.
When we are sanctified through the truth, then we are one in Christ, and
we can get into one accord for the gift or power of the Holy Ghost, and God
