Example text

Actually, little is known of Schaepe (pronounced “Sheppy” and sometimes misspelled “Scheppe”). In 1919 he was listed as a minister with the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, a Oneness organization, but he did not play a significant role in the movement after 1913. As the quotations in this chapter from Andrew Urshan, Frank Ewart, and Frank Small show, early Pentecostals used the term “revelation” to refer to the illumination of Scripture by the Holy Spirit. ”67 From the beginning, Oneness believers appealed to Scripture as the authority for their doctrine and rejected the idea of extrabiblical revelation.

48 The major leaders of the Pentecostal movement at the time all opposed Durham, however, including Parham, Seymour, Cashwell, Mason, and Tomlinson. They held that the Spirit could not come upon an unsanctified life, meaning that a person first had to receive sanctification as a definite, instantaneous, second work of grace. It was commonly stated that the Holy Ghost would not fill an unclean vessel (which many have erroneously thought to be a biblical quotation), referring not to repentance but to entire sanctification.

The Azusa Street revival that he led became the impetus for the worldwide spread of Pentecostalism. Although Seymour’s influence rapidly diminished after 1911, almost every Pentecostal organization in the world owes its existence, directly or indirectly, to Seymour’s Azusa Street Mission in Los Angeles. The Pentecostal movement was a logical, scriptural extension of the ideas of the Protestant Reformation of the 1500s, the Methodist revival of the 1700s, and the Holiness movement of the 1800s. It was the next step in the restoration of apostolic doctrine and experience to professing Christendom.
