The Plumb Line by Rev. Gordon Upton
The Plumb Line evaluates the histories of several world-wide revival movements that have been raised up over the centuries, their influence on the nations where they occurred, and some of the reasons for the precipitous decline of some of those movements today.
This book includes the history of the Pentecostal revival that broke upon the world's scene at the beginning of the last century, with the subsequent birth of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. The author, who has served more than 65 years in the Pentecostal ministry, traces the development of the Assemblies position of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, the Gifts of the Spirit and the Five-Fold Ministries. Also included is a detailed exposition of some of the fallacious doctrines that causing confusion among many today.
A detailed treatment of the Scriptures relating to the Second Coming of Christ and their relevance in the world today gives the reader much food for thought as the prophesied events of Scripture have begun to unfold on a fractured world in tumult prior to the coming of the Lord.
