"He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."
JAMES CHALLEN & SOΝ:
THE Baptism of the Holy Spirit has claimed much of the public attention of late, and many sermons have been preached on it, and allusions made to it in most of the Christian assemblies met for prayer and other religious exercises. Besides, numerous tracts, essays, and books, have been written and published on this subject, and great prominence has been given to it, as though it was the chief thing now needed, both for the conversion of the world and the sanctification of the believer. There is much room to doubt many of the opinions entertained in regard to the question, "What constitutes this baptism?" — and any serious and prayerful endeavor to throw light upon it, may not prove unacceptable nor unprofitable.
Whilst the Author truly believes in the Work and Agency of the Holy Spirit; in the conviction and conversion of sinners, by and through the truth as it in Jesus;" and in the sanctification of the believer by His presence and power: whilst he joyfully admits, and fully believes, that the Spirit of God dwells in the hearts of all Christians, as a Witness, a Guide, and a Comforter — as the Spirit of Adoption, and an earnest of future glory to the saints: he nevertheless thinks that much that is taught and believed by many, as true, on the Baptism of the Spirit and Fire, will not bear the test of a sound and scriptural examination. And with the design of placing these subjects in their proper relations to the Gospel of Christ, he has written the following pages.
