Please note the following information. This page is to complete incomplete references in documentation or to display other important changes to magazine material not quoted correctly or needing change or clarification in the magazine.
As you look at the Pentecost magazine you will possibly notice that some of the articles are missing. This is almost always because of some copyright issue where I have gone back and removed material that used quotations that I do not have permission to use.
the Pentecost magazine uses a number of different Bible Translations. Some are particular in how they need to be documented. The New King James translation is used in some places. The following reference is meant to go along with all of their usage and I have included it here in the addendum to the magazines: “Scripture taken from the New King James Version®. Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc. Used by permission. All rights reserved.” Much of the verses from this translation I have taken out, wanting to conform to their strict copyright restrictions. To my knowledge there is no quotation of the New King James Bible displayed on this website, in the Pentecost Magazine that exceeds their free use, 250 word limit. In many other places I have used the New American Standard Version. A link to their website is: “Scripture quotations taken from the NASB.”
If you would like to copy any issue of the Pentecost Magazine I give full permission for you to copy complete magazine issues or complete articles as long as they are here on the website and as long as they are being distributed free of charge, or at reproduction and/or distribution cost.. If I have taken an issue down from the website it is almost always because there is some reason that I don’t have permission to print or grant reproduction of that particular issue. Most issues can be found on this site but please do not copy issues that you can’t find on our “the Pentecost” page. If you are using an article or issue, please document it. If you want to quote a selection of words fro an article found in the Pentecost Magazine, then I give you full permission to quote my (Shawn Stevens) words. If you are quoting someone other than myself from an article then I do not have the authority to grant that permission. Thank you.
The Pentecost Issue 7:
The quote in the article “The Life and Ministry of John Sung” should have the following as a footnote:

” … the most imposing preacher of the Middle Ages and one of the most note-worthy preachers of righteousness since St. Paul.” Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, Vol. 6 (Peabody: Hendrickson Publishers Inc., 1996), Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, Vol. 6, Copyright 1996 by Hendrickson Publishers, Peabody, Massachusetts.

“I could not endure any longer the wickedness of the blinded peoples of Italy. Virtue I saw despised everywhere and vices exalted and held in honor. With great warmth of heart, I made daily a short prayer to God that He might release me from this veil of tears. ‘Make known to me the way,’ I cried, ‘the way in which I should walk for I lift up my soul unto Thee,’ and God in His infinite mercy showed me the way, unworthy as I am of such distinguishing grace.” Girolamo Savonarola, quoted in Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, Vol. 6 (Peabody: Hendrickson Publishers Inc., 1996), 685.Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, Vol. 6, Copyright 1996 by Hendrickson Publishers, Peabody, Massachusetts.

” Go to Rome and see! In the mansions of the great prelates there is no concern save for poetry and the oratorical art. Go thither and see! Thou shalt find them all with the books of the humanities in their hands and telling one another that they can guide men’s souls by means of Virgil, Horace and Cicero. … The prelates of former days had fewer gold miters and chalices and what few they possessed were broken up and given to meet the needs of the poor. But our prelates, for the sake of obtaining chalices, will rob the poor of their sole means of support. Dost thou not know what I would tell thee! ‘What doest thou, O Lord! Arise, and come to deliver thy Church from the hands of devils, from the hands of tyrants, from the hands of iniquitous prelates.'” Girolamo Savonarola, quoted in Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, Vol. 6 (Peabody: Hendrickson Publishers Inc., 1996), 688.Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, Vol. 6, Copyright 1996 by Hendrickson Publishers, Peabody, Massachusetts.

The Pentecost Issue 41:
Man has always been beset by worry, and the pressures of modern life have aggravated the problem … many of you are filled with a thousand anxieties. Bring them to Jesus Christ by faith … I am learning in my own life, day by day, to keep my mind centered on Christ; the worries and anxieties and concerns of the world pass, and nothing but “perfect peace” is left in the human heart. Billy Grahm, The Bily Grahm Christian Worker’s Handbook (Minneapolis: World Wide Publications,1984)34.

The Pentecost Issue 5:
Louis A. Drummond comments, “Moreover, as is so often the case, that general humanistic atmosphere soon infiltrated theological circles. It began to manifest itself as an emphasis on human development and far less on a God-centred approach to the realities of life as prevailed for centuries.” Louis A.

He clarifies this point in these words; “In our fellowship with Methodists of all grades we have found them firmly adhering to those great evangelical doctrines for which we contend … We care far more for the central evangelical truths than we do for Calvinism as a system … Those who hold the eternal verities of salvation, and yet do not see all that we believe and embrace, are by no means the objects of our opposition: our warfare is with men who are giving up the atoning sacrifice, denying the inspiration of Holy Scriptures, and casting slurs upon justification by faith. The present struggle is not a debate upon the question of Calvinism or Arminianism, but of the truth of God versus the inventions of men.” Charles H. Spurgeon, quoted in Louis A.

Pentecost Issue 19
This issue contains Rev. William Shurtleff misquote of 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8. The verse should read “
And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:”
please accept this notification as I like to correct these things.Shawn Stevens.
Pentecost Issue 24:
“heart became hungry again for another manifestation of God…. So I went forward that she might place her handsuponme. Whenshedid,theSpiritofGodagain struck me like a bolt of lightening; the power of God surged through my body, and I again began speaking in tongues.”
Ethel A. Goss The Winds of God. (NewYork: Comet Press Books,1958.)
If there are still issues out there of issue 25 please note that there are misquotations of scripture in Seymour’s two messages. I have rerun these articles in issue 95 and made the corrections.
The Pentecost Issue 26:
“Your understanding is small. As to the ocean, though you spent many years in it, you would never be able to explore the half of it, nor reach the limit, and it is utterly impossible to compare it with this well of yours.” Spiros Zodhiates, Was Christ God? (Chattanooga: AMG Publishers,1994), 58-59. This Is not an exact quote, I have changed it somewhat. Shawn Stevens
The Pentecost Issue 27:
“one can hardly go through the streets of this city without hearing the voice of praise or seeing the young men assembling together for prayer.” Joshua Marsden, quoted in Rev. Barry P. Boucher, Canada’s Spiritual Heritage, http://www.watchmen.org, retrieved December, 2004.
“Some students were under the power of God on the floor, others were kneeling in adoration and worship before the Lord. The annointing deepened until the awe was upon everyone. The Lord spoke to one of the brethern, ‘Go and lay hands upon a certain student and pray for him.’
3While he was in doubt and contemplation one of the sisters who had been under the power of God went to the brother saying the same words, and naming the identical student he was to pray for. He went in obedience and a revelation was given concerning the student’s life and future ministry. After this, a long prophecy was given with minute details concerning the great things God was about to do. The pattern for the revival and many details concerning it were given”. I believe the reference is : Reports Of Revival In Canada. Ralf and Lou Sutra.
“It seemed that all heaven broke loose upon our souls, and heaven came down to greet us. Soon a visible manifestation of gifts was received when candidates were prayed over, and many as a result were healed, as gifts of healing were received.”
I believe the reference is : Reports Of Revival In Canada. Ralf and Lou Sutra.
Pentecost Issue 57:
“ … Christianity has in it the power of recovery. It can burst the shell of custom and routine and renew the rapture of its early life.”I have not specifically requested but because it is within their 500 word free use terms I am saying : Taken from Revival : Released And Relayed by Hugh C. C. McCullough, © N.D. Used by permission of Zondervan. www.zondervan.com
The Azusa Series article on “The Life and Ministry of Lucy Farrow” in Issue # 24 contained a quote from The Apostolic Faith Magazine. It says that the quote came from the September 1907 Issue, however, the correct Issue was May of 1908, on page 2
It was said that Azusa Revival ran continuously for three years. This is not far from the truth but the running time was not completely unbroken. For more info see issue 26.
Pentecost Issue 6:
A WORD OF CORRECTION
For those who have read my article Stone, Mountain, Whole Earth, printed in 2006 I wrote that the last world empire in Nebuchadnezzar’s vision was Rome and that I believed that the stone cut without hands and hitting the base of the image was God’s kingdom coming at the time of Christ’s first advent. I would like to take back interpreting this passage and leave its interpretation to God. Thank you. Shawn Stevens
Pentecost Issue 56
AWORDOFCLARIFICATION: Myarticle”ChurchRestoration”in last month’s issue was not meant to be given as a prophecy or as an authoritive teaching but rather as my opinion. I believe that the last days church will be, in a greater way than what we have seen in the past, a revived church and I have used the term “restored”tomeanrevived. Thankyou.

“ love practised among people who love poorly.” Henri Nouwen quoted in Day 23 Daily Forgiveness http://www.kingschurchlondon.org/resources/blog.php?my=January%202013
Now he stood before her with an outstretched hand, asking “Will you forgive me?” Corrie said, “ I stood there with coldness clutching at my heart, but I know that the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart. I prayed, “Jesus, help me!” Woodenly, mechanically, I thrust my hand into the one stretched out to me and I experienced an incredible thing. The current started in my shoulder, raced down into my arm and sprang into our clutched hands. Then this warm reconciliation seemed to flood my whole being, bringing tears to my eyes. “I forgive you, brother.” I cried with my whole heart. For a long moment we grasped each others hands, the former guard, the former prisoner. I have never known the love of God so intensely as I did in that moment!” When we forgive we set a prisoner free—ourselves. reference: http://scott.hayes.org/thoughts/corrie_ten_boom.html
The article “Vision And Message” has a a quotation of Matthew 21:22 however it is incorrect; The correct quotation of Matthew 21:22 is “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
King James Version (KJV)
