Excerpt

ne was to appear not only for an appointed work, but for an appointed period: "He shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever"--eis ton aiõna. If we translate literally and say "for the age," it harmonizes with a parallel passage. In giving the great commission, Jesus says: "And lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the age." Here his presence by the Holy Ghost is evidently meant. The perpetuity of that presence is guaranteed, "with you all the days"; and its bound determined, "unto the end of the age."

This is a great book on the Holy Spirit! The Church has done a great dis-service to God by not allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us. The Church Age is also the age when the Holy Spirit is drawing the Body of Christ out from the world and preparing the Church to be one with the head (Jesus Christ). Brother Gordon explains the problems with Ecclesiastic, Presbyterian, and Congregational authority. The Holy Spirit should be leading the Church...NOT the clergy, the elders, or the congregation! This book is an in depth, plain explanation of the Ministry of the Spirit. This book is still as fresh and enlightening as if it were written this year. I encourage every Christian to read it.
