... when did it change? Was there an expiration date on all those in the Upper Room [to end their Pentecostal experience], and the thousands they laid hands on, were they not also filled with the Spirit of Pentecost? AND, how do we know that the experience of Pentecost truly ended when the last Apostle or Disciple died? Wouldn't the first church, that was, in every sense of the word, PENTECOSTAL, have continued to be PENTECOSTAL, through this day and age, and unto the Rapture? I'm just doing some thinking out loud, and I know many of you will set me straight ... which is why I asked! I would like to hear your honest feelings as to why a church born on Pentecoste and starting out with the gift of speaking in other languages, suddenly switched it's direction, doctrine, theology! I mean, didn't God tell Jacob, in Malachi 3:6 that, "For I am the LORD, I change not..." Then in Numbers 23:19, "God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?" OR, Hebrews 13:8, " Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." And, James 1:17, "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down …" FINALLY, Revelation 1:8, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, said the Lord, …" and Revelation 22:13, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last."
