A picture of Pentecost by Michael Freeman
What is it? Who reads it?
Cultural upbringing affects our daily lives. Most of the time we do things like our parents taught us. Southern folk talk different than people from the North. We eat bacon, grits and greens because that’s the way we were raised. That’s who we are. That’s what we identify with.
Pentecostal isn’t a denomination. It is a way of life. We don’t handle snakes, chant or dance naked around the fire.
We are different. A peculiar people. Pentecostals dress different, act different and talk different than other Christians. We are NOT perfect and we DO make mistakes but true Pentecostals all have one thing in common, the baptism of the Holy Ghost. We talk in tongues and strive for the best Spiritual gifts. We worship in the Spirit.
The Holy Ghost isn’t to be feared. He is the third person of the trinity and is available to all blood-bought, born-again saints, regardless of denomination. He can’t be explained. He must be experienced.
Characters in my fiction novels experience the power of the Holy Ghost. They enter God’s presence through his Spirit. They are drawn to the precious blood of Jesus by the Spirit. As with all relationships, some characters are more intimate with Him than others. While living in a world of conflict and sorrow, they struggle, question and react to God’s prompting. Much like you and I.
If you’ve never attended a Pentecostal service, I encourage you to do so regardless of your own denomination, but you don’t have to be Pentecostal to enjoy Pentecostal fiction. Just like you don’t have to be Amish to read Amish fiction.
A true Pentecostal novel written by a Pentecostal author is available here. I hope you enjoy the story and may the Spirit lead you into God’s presence as you read.
