Finneys Baptism in the Holy Spirit

“In the evening of the same day I received overwhelming baptisms of the Holy Ghost, that went through me, as it seemed to me, body and soul. I immediately found myself endued with such power from on high that a few words dropped here and there to individuals were the...

Aspects of being filled with Holy Spirit
