Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour
of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the
devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but
against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of
the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in
high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour
of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and
having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your
loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of
righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of
the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the
wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword
of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always
with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching
thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all
saints; 19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me,
that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the
mystery of the gospel, 20 For which I am an ambassador in
bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.



God has ordained such a time
as this ……
Writes Rev David P Griffiths,
Founder of the PHCC & Sons
of God Network as heard from
the Lord

He has warned in HIS WORD to remove not the “Ancient
Landmark” and so he has called Lindsay, Apostle David
Owen and others to make a stand against all the Jezebellic
infiltration of the Egyptian “false translations” like NIV,
NASB, NKJV, NLT etc. etc. and all this infiltration of
Jezebellic tolerating/acceptance of sin love that abounds
in UK “churches” today.

PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

He has called us to pull it all down – and all the “Mickey
Mouse” unity movements that smile at each other in a
false kind of love. God has ordained a judgment – a
removal of the landmark’s replacement and a restoration
of true Pentecostal holiness with power!

The statement of power follows. It is the statement that
fights as it is firmly rooted in the blood bought Authorized
Version – the Holy Bible.

Proverbs 22: 28 Remove not the ancient landmark, which
thy fathers have set.

Acts 10: 38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the
Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good,
and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was
with him. 39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did
both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they
slew and hanged on a tree: 40 Him God raised up the third
day, and shewed him openly; 41 Not to all the people, but
unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat
and drink with him after he rose from the dead. 42 And he
commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that
it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick
and dead. 43 To him give all the prophets witness, that
through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive
remission of sins.

God has ordained that there be a mighty movement
taking up the mantles of Wigglesworth, Jeffreys,
Rees Howells, Campbell, Wesley, D.C. Williams,
Howard Carter, Charles Harthern etc. to bring
about the continuation of a Church (at present in its
remnant state) that has not bowed down to the
Alexandrian corruption. This is the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing with the Sons Of God
Network that is growing to awesome proportions –
full of Holy Ghost anointed preaching of God’s
Word that reveals who we truly are in Christ Jesus!
The remnant is bigger than we thought!

PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

During the preparation months I have been
contacting faithful Ministers of the Word to lay
down before God a doctrinal statement in line with
the precious Authorized Version of the Bible that is
consistent with the vision of Holiness Pentecostal
pioneers.
This is a STATEMENT that fights for our nation’s
Christian Constitution, a STATEMENT that
demands a return to the ethical standards
demanded by God and also it is a STATEMENT
that insists on a return to SOUND DOCTRINE,
the DOCTRINE of the AUTHORIZED
VERSION rather than the false doctrine of the
“new translations”!

I truly believe with all my heart that I have TRULY
HEARD FROM God, this whole operation pulsates
from my heart. I believe the time of revival is near
as Jezebel’s counterfeit is exposed for what it is – a
mish mash of Egyptian Alexandrian bondage
placing what was the “church” in fear rather than
Holy Ghost Fire and Anointing.

                                                   Rev. David P. Griffiths

PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING




It is the responsibility of the Church in Britain to restore
the King James Version of the Bible back to its PRIMARY
POSITION in British Society for it is this Bible that the
present Queen, Queen Elizabeth swore upon pledging
herself as Supreme Head of the Church of England (The
Act of Supremacy 1534) to cause law and justice in mercy
to be executed in all her judgements as well as to the
utmost of her power maintain the laws of God, the true
profession of the gospel and the Protestant reformed
religion established by law (Coronation Oath Act, 1689).

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing is
constitutionally obligated to do the same and will
not accept as law any apparent Act of Parliament
that would endeavour to prevent the Continuing
Church to be part of this Constitutional obligation.
Any such attempt would be seen as an Act of
Treason before Almighty God & the Nation.

Indeed   the  Pentecostal  Holiness    Church
Continuing has an obligation to remind the
Monarch and Her Government of these demands.

Whilst it is understood by the Pentecostal Holiness
Church Continuing that Britain is now a multi cultural
society with many different beliefs and understandings,
the Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing hereby
establishes its determination to point out to the nation
that it is only the Protestant Reformed Religion, which has
been established by law, and that it is the role of the
Monarch constitutionally to defend this faith and no other
(Coronation Oath Act, 1689; Act of Settlement, 1700).
7 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING


Any attempt to repeal the Constitutional Acts of
our nation would be seen as an act of treason by
the Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing
which is dedicated to wholeheartedly maintain the
Constitutional Acts of 1534, 1689 and 1700.

It is accepted by the Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing that constitutionally symbols that
represent the Nation have to reflect our
Protestant Christian heritage and so in Wales the
Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing will
insist that the Nation refrains from waving a flag
of devilish origin and wave a flag of our Christian
heritage like the citizens of England, Northern
Ireland, Scotland and Cornwall do. In Wales this
is the flag of David.

Rev. 12: 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old
serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the
whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels
were cast out with him.
          Away from the defeated symbol
                          As I was burdened for Wales and
                          prayed for the success of the kingdom
                          of God and battled against the forces
                          of darkness I was burdened by the
                          necessity of removing the dragon from
                          being the emblem of our country. As
the religion of Wales is based on the Holy Scriptures and
because the red dragon in the scriptures is a symbol of the
devil is it not scriptural to remove it? When the devil sees his
symbol on the flag of a Christian country that professes to hate
him it is a source of joy to him. Is there not a cry in the hearts
of thousands of followers of the Lamb in Wales against this
inconsistency between their profession and their emblem?

PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING




                         to the real flag of Wales




In addition to this, the Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing hereby points out that due to the obligation
upon the present Queen to maintain the laws of God, it is
thereby obvious that such apparent laws that have been
passed by Parliament and given the Royal signature that
are not matching up to the principles and guidelines given
by God in His Word such as the Abortion Act of 1967, then
of course the Act is not legal, and so it is to be the role of
this Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing to
point out such unbiblical actions and bring the nation
before God in repentance for its sinful actions.
Statement on the British Constitution

Whilst the Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing
firmly argues that Christ Jesus himself is the Head of the
Church; Col. 1:18. The Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing fully understands that as the Act of
Supremacy 1534 itself points out, that when the Act refers
to the Monarch as the supreme Head of the Church of
England, the comment itself is relating to earth. It is
accepted in the act the Lordship of Jesus Christ for the act
itself places obligation on the Monarch to visit, repress,
reform, order, correct, restrain and amend error, heresy,
abuses, offences, contempts and enormities; these actions
being in line with gaining the pleasure of Almighty God
and the increase in virtue of Christ’s religion, this being
linked with the conservation of the peace, unity and
tranquillity of the realm.
9 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing also
accepts that when Constitutional acts refer to “England”
the points raised apply to Wales, Scotland and Northern
Ireland also due to each respective Act of Union.

It is, therefore, perfectly legal for the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing as subjects of the
Monarch to take action in line with this Act and so
the Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing will
continue to correct error as directed by God and
this will involve removing the widespread
acceptance of immoral acts like abortion and
homosexuality.


The Coronation Oath Act of 1689 refers to the statutes,
laws and customs of the British Realm. The God given role
of the Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing in
this respect is merely to point out this serious obligation
before God. The Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing believes that this obligation has to be
understood as referring to the Christian root of our nation,
the statutes, laws and customs, therefore to be legal need
to have their foundations in the Word of God. This is
clearly established in the Act for the Archbishop of Bishop
asks the forthcoming Monarch at his or her coronation
whether he or she solemnly promises to govern according
to the statutes in Parliament agreed upon, and the laws
and customs of the same following this by a promise to
cause law and justice to be executed in judgements, and
thus following this by a promise to maintain the laws of
God, the true profession of the gospel and the Protestant
Reformed religion.

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing
acknowledges and understands that within modern day
cultures such obligations are seen as being “politically
incorrect”. The Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing in reply to such objections simply points out
10 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

that political correctness has been written down and
political correctness simply means being in line with
British Constitutional values that have been established in
God’s Word.

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing fully
accepts and understands the obligation on the Monarch
not to have communion with the Church of Rome, profess
the Popish religion or marry a Papist; Act of Settlement
1700. Whilst it is not the desire of the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing to restrict or suppress
lawful activities of the Roman Catholic Church, it is the
decision of the Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing to bring a full understanding of the
obligations of the Monarch to defend the Protestant
Reformed faith and that this does mean that the Royal
Family must be fully Protestant. It is understood from the
work of Chris Richards of the Protestant Alliance that the
act refers to succession to the throne coming through the
Protestant Hanoverian line.

Despite of contemporary thinking, the Monarch according
to constitutional acts has to be Protestant and a Defender
of that faith. This is entirely in line with the obligations of
the 1689 Coronation Oath Act, these obligations making it
impossible for anyone but a Protestant to fulfil those
obligations, in the same way that the obligations placed on
the Pope could not be fulfilled by a Protestant and so it is
the presentation of the Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing that the Act is not at all discriminatory, but
simply keeps the nation back on track to its original heart
and vision for without that vision, the people will perish
including those of other persuasions; Proverbs 29:18.

As regards to the current social conditions in
Britain: this is the position of the
Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing
11 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

In the Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing
the unchanging Word of God will take priority
over changing social conditions.

The Unchanging Word of God is the answer for the whole
of humanity and instead of bowing down to the four horns
that are polluting the World and the “Church” the
Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing will expose
the activities of the “horns” and offer a lifeline to the
people.

Zechariah 1:18 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and
behold four horns. 19 And I said unto the angel that talked
with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the
horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.
20 And the LORD shewed me four carpenters. 21 Then said
I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are
the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did
lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out
the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the
land of Judah to scatter it.

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing
accepts this is a prophetic utterance through Zechariah
seeing the social conditions today as being the same that
scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem.

With the power of the Holy Ghost the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing will counteract the
activities of these “horns” which are as follows:

               I. The    Spirit of Intellectualism,
                  humanism and Pride in Man’s
                  Achievements.

This sees everything in black and white, reasoning
everything to a logical conclusion, man being the superior
being and the mind as the source of all knowledge.
12 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING


Apostle John Wesley The devil has
given to the Church a substitute for
  faith which looks and sounds so
 much like faith some people can't
   tell the difference = MENTAL
               ASSENT.

Within this understanding there is a development of an
over-stressed society for man is incapable of finding out
truth which only comes through Jesus Christ and so the
Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing will hold
out a hand to an over stressed society to receive
freedom through the blood of our Precious
Saviour.
          II. The Spirit of Anti-Christ

I John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus
Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that
spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should
come; and even now already is it in the world.

We live in a questioning society that is denying Biblical
truth replacing this truth with a series of ideologies that
result in men suffering torment in this life and eternal
punishment in hell.

“New translations” contribute to this confusion with their
Gnostic perspectives and so it is recognised by the
Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing that we
need a programme of God to counter-act Anti-Christ
activity both in what is known as “Church” and in society
as a whole.
13 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

            III. The Spirit of Immorality

Within the present social conditions this spirit has been
having a hey–day for society and “Church” has moved
away from Biblical truth.

Romans 1: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and
worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator,
who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave
them up unto vile affections: for even their women did
change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the
woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with
men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in
themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

This is a road to destruction and the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing will portray the only way
to salvation.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and
the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

             IV. The Spirit of Lust or Materialism

I Tim. 6: 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and
a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which
drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of
money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after,
they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves
through with many sorrows.

This spirit creates a society intent on creating wealth for
itself developing an uncontrollable desire to get more.

It is in the areas of sexual lust, love of money and
intellectualism that families are being destroyed, and even
today there are those in the “Church” who are discouraged
14 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

with the conditions that have been brought about through
the activities of the four “horns”.

Apostle p.168-179

The Solution ….

Zech. 4: 6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying,
This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not
by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of
hosts. 7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before
Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring
forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace,
grace unto it.

Present day “Zerubabbels” operating in the offices of
Prophet and Apostle will move in this power and it is the
policy of
the Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing to
bring the conditions for these offices to manifest in the
strength of the Lord.

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing does
not accept that Britain has become a multi-faith, secular
humanist society as scripturally preference is given to that
which is written.

It is, therefore written that the following practices and
objects are contrary to scripture and are thus not
permitted under our Protestant Constitution.

Yoga, Fortune Telling, Palmistry, Charms, Zodiac/Birth
signs, Spiritism, Tarot Cards, Hypnosis, Clairvoyance,
Psychic powers, Handwriting analysis, Halloween, Age of
Aquarius, Horoscopes, Dream interpretation, ESP, Hand

Taekwondo, Ch’uan-fa, Taoism, Kung-fu, Mushindo
karate, T’ai Chi Ch’uan, Karate, Numerology,

Incantatations, “Holy” objects, Addictions, Spoon bending,
Voices in the mind, Standing stones ceremonies, Ley lines,

In addition to this the Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing is utterly opposed to the teachings of:

Christian    Scientists,   Mohammedism,        Spiritualists,
Unitarians, Universalists, and Mormons. We deny as false
the teachings of the Seventh Day Adventists (Galatians
3:11; Colossians 2:16-17), Annihilation of the Wicked,
Conditional Immortality and Anti-nomianism, teaching
against an organized church, the Resurrection Life, the
Redemption of Glorification of the body in this life,
Jehovah Witness and the false teaching that we are not
born of God until we are sanctified wholly (Mark 9:43-45;
Revelation 20:10-14), Roman Catholicism (Matt. 17:5), the
belief systems and practices of the Occult, Sorcery (Exodus
20:3; Exodus 22:18; Leviticus 19:31; Leviticus 20:6, 27;
Deuteronomy 18:10-13; Acts 8:9-24; Acts 16:16-19;
Galatians 5:20), Witchcraft (1Samuel 28:8-19; Micah
5:12), Psychics, Psychic telephone lines, Numerology, and
so-called New Age practices.

PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING




               I. Marriage

This can only be between a male and female, clear from
Genesis onwards.

Gen. 1: 27 So God created man in his own image, in the
image of God created he him; male and female created he
them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue
it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the
fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon
the earth.

Marriage involves companionship, there being a social and
spiritual union as well as a sexual one.

Mal. 2:14 Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath
been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against
whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy
companion, and the wife of thy covenant.

I Cor. 7:2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man
have his own wife, and let every woman have her own
husband. 3 Let the husband render unto the wife due
benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the
husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of
his own body, but the wife.

As regards to the sexual union, these relations are
threefold:
17 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

Propagation:

Gen. 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them,
Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and
subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and
over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that
moveth upon the earth.

Unification:

Gen. 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his
mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one
flesh.

Recreation:

Prov. 5:18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the
wife of thy youth. 19 Let her be as the loving hind and
pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be
thou ravished always with her love.

Sexual intercourse before marriage is not permitted and is
referred to as “fornication” in the Holy Scriptures.

Acts 15:20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain
from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from
things strangled, and from blood.

I Cor. 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is
without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth
against his own body.

Sexual intercourse outside of marriage is called “adultery”
in the Holy Scriptures.

Ex. 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Matt. 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away
his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry
18 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her
which is put away doth commit adultery.

Sex is ordained by God for marriage only.

Matt. 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed
undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will
judge.

Marriage is a lifetime commitment.

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing fully
recognises the existence of evil forces looking to
steal our young people away from the Word of
God.

To counteract this activity the Pentecostal
Holiness Church will issue a certificate entitled
“True Love Waits” with appropriate God-given
scriptures to young people who desire to express
their decision to save themselves for their
wedding night.

Eph. 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of
God. 22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands,
as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife,
even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the
saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject
unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in
every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ
also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he
might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by
the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious
church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but
that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 So ought men
to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his
wife loveth himself. 29 For no man ever yet hated his own
19 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the
church: 30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and
of his bones. 31 For this cause shall a man leave his father
and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two
shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery: but I speak
concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let every
one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and
the wife see that she reverence her husband.

             II. Homosexuality

God did not ordain same-sex sexual relations, sex being
within a family context only.

Both the Old and New Testaments condemn the act of
homosexuality, Jude 7 referring to the sins of Sodom as
still being sin today.

Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about
them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication,
and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example,
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Not only does homosexuality defile the persons involved, it
also defiles the land where it is permitted.

Whatever man may have done to apparently
legalise homosexuality in Britain, in God’s eyes
which never change homosexuality is a gross sin
requiring repentance by the individual and in the
nation as a whole where it is tolerated.

Under our Protestant Constitutional Acts,
conflicting laws to the Acts have to bow the knee,
for Constitutional laws are higher as they have
been God given.

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing will,
therefore, continue to expose the sin of
20 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

homosexuality and express God’s Word as the
Holy Ghost gives us utterance.

Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with
womankind: it is abomination. 23 Neither shalt thou lie with
any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any
woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is
confusion. 24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things:
for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before
you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the
iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her
inhabitants.

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing does
not accept that somehow Jesus in the New
Testament released mankind from adhering to
this law, but rather there is a greater emphasis on
the Church staying pure.

Rom. 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and
worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator,
who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave
them up unto vile affections: for even their women did
change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the
woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with
men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in
themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their
knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do
those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with
all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness,
maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit,
malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God,
despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding,
covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable,
unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they

PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do
the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.


            III. Medical Ethics

Abortion:

It is the conviction of the Pentecostal Holiness
Church Continuing that this issue is No.1 on God’s
medical ethical agenda. God wants us to deal with
the issue of bringing life rather than death to the
child in the womb. How can a nation possibly
hope to control its youth when the nation is guilty
itself of allowing innocents to be slaughtered
mercilessly?

It is reported that 6.7 million abortions have been
performed by doctors in Britain since the
implementation of the 1967 Abortion act –
deemed illegal under our nation’s Constitution.

http://www.bmapetition.org.uk/

The first God-given principle given to us is to save life. The
whole issue we believe is dependent on whether or not a
child in the womb is fully human, potentially human or
subhuman. British Constitutional obligations on
government are to protect life rather than destroy it
depending on whether or not the child in the womb is a
living being or not. The Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing declares without doubt that a child in the
womb is fully human, and no human being including the
child’s mother has any right whatsoever to kill a child
precious to God, and all those who declare that life is
above death.

It is understood by The Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing that those who favour the availability of
22 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

abortion would consider a child in the womb as either
being potentially human or subhuman. If the government
of the day understands the child in the womb as fully
human, then that government would be guilty of the crime
of murder if it allowed the crime of abortion to take place.

It is recognized that those who take the subhuman
perspective might well regard having one’s first breath as
the point of the beginning of a human life. The Bible,
however, points out human beings continue to exist after
they stop breathing.

 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart,
   and to be with Christ; which is far better. Phil. 1:23

Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we
are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord; (For
we walk by faith, not by sight;) We are confident, I say, and
willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present
with the Lord. II Cor. 5:6-8

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar
the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and
for the testimony which they held: Rev. 6:9

In addition to this the scripture refers to human life in the
womb long before breathing begins from the point of
conception.

 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother
          conceive me. Psalm of David. Psalm 51:5

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the
Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou
son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for
that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. Matthew
1:20
23 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

As well as this scriptural proof, it is also a fact medically
that many who stop breathing are later revived or have life
aided by a machine. Having the first breath therefore
clearly does not mark the beginning of humanness.

It is also the position of the Pentecostal Holiness
Church Continuing that medical proof does not
support the concept that a baby in the womb is
subhuman for if self-consciousness is essential to
humanness then those who have found
themselves in a coma are not human. It is also a
scientific fact that an embryo is not an extension
of the mother for the baby has its own sex from
conception, and after forty days has its own
individual brain waves. Within a few weeks the
baby has its own blood type and unique
fingerprints, birth simply, therefore, changing the
method of receiving oxygen and food.

In reply to the argument that “legalized” abortion has
saved lives, it is simply not true to say that it has saved
thousand of mothers from dying, but is true to say that it
has killed millions of babies. We in the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing believe it to be our
call to save the lives of these babies. Information
from Norman Geisler’s book on Christian Ethics gives
figures of 1/100 of 1% maternal death rate whereas
abortion operations have a 100% death rate. It is the
position of the Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing that even saving the lives of hundreds of
mothers does not justify costing the lives of millions of
babies. 6.7 million babies have been slaughtered in Britain
since 1967 and so it is the position of the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing that if we are to show to
generations growing up that violence and abuse against
others is wrong, then government has to show its
repentance for being the main perpetrator of it. Figures
show from the U.S.A. that between 1973 when abortion
24 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

was legalized and 1982 child abuse increased by more than
500% proving the Biblical principle of sowing and reaping.
If you therefore, place violence onto youth, youth will
return violence back to you particularly from a world now
seemingly devoid of family stability.

The Young Generation is growing up surrounded
by immorality and violence. Instead of changing
the Word of God to match the change in social
conditions, the Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing in not removing the Ancient
Landmark opens up its arms for sinners to repent.

 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man
          soweth, that shall he also reap. Gal. 6:7

It is the position of the Pentecostal Holiness
Church Continuing that deformity is no
justification for abortion pointing out in making
this statement that this reason for abortion covers
only a tiny percentage of abortions carried out. If
abortion for the deformed unborn is acceptable
then so is mass execution for mentally and
physically handicapped people. On stating this,
however, it is the position of the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing that if a nation
repents and follows God, in Britain’s case
according to its Constitution then God is obligated
to honour us by healing us; Ex. 15:26; Deut. 28.

On the subject of the mother’s rights here, it needs
to be pointed out that there is not one known
organization working with physically and
mentally handicapped people in favour of
slaughtering those who they care for. It is widely
accepted that mothers bond with such children
very successfully and to care and love such a child
is certainly God’s will for a family as we stand
25 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

together for complete and absolute healing, not
death.

To argue for the mother to have rights to decide to kill the
unborn is the same as arguing for murder to be legalized in
society. With the exception of criminal rape each person
involved in intercourse is responsible for the consequences
of this, therefore in the vast majority of abortions the
“guest” has been invited in, and so, therefore, the law of
this nation to be in line with its Constitution must not
permit individuals to be able to decide whether or not to
kill a baby, for the status of the unborn biblically
and scientifically is that we are dealing with a
human being.

There are two innocent parties of three involved in a rape
that results in a pregnancy. The two innocent parties in a
rape instigated by a man are the mother and the baby.
Why then should the baby pay the ultimate price for the
illegal intercourse? To quote Norman Geisler; Abortion
does not take away the evil of the rape; it adds
another evil to it. The rape problem is not solved
by killing the baby. Penal correction therefore
should be given to the guilty party, and to the 50%
of people who in such cases seem to not want the
baby, then adoption should be offered as opposed
to abortion.

It is, therefore, the position of the Pentecostal Holiness
Church Continuing to view a foetus as fully human,
Biblical and non-Biblical evidence following. The evidence,
which we regard as overwhelming, therefore, places a
human being in the womb, a human being that has the
same rights to life as those human beings outside the
womb.

The Bible calls unborn children “children” the same word
used of infants and young children. This is consistent with
a medical report given through the Abortion Gallery

     And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the
    salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and
           Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

   For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in
       mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

   And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe
     wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger.

And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and
     the babe lying in a manger. Luke 1:41,44; 2:12,16.

If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit
depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be
surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay

upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. Ex.
21:22

The Bible declares that the unborn are created by
God, as God created Adam and Eve in his image.

 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in
             my mother’ womb. Psalm 139:13

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God
created he him; male and female created he them. Gen. 1:27

Old Testament punishment for those doing harm
to the unborn is the same as to an adult.

If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit
   depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be
surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay
   upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. Ex.
                            21:22

Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be
shed: for in the image of God made he man. Gen. 9:6

Christ Jesus was human from the point he was
conceived in Mary’s womb.

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the
 Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou
 son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for
     that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name
JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew
                          1:20, 21

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God
unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth.
29 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

  To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of
 the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. Luke
                           1:26, 27.

God’s image includes male and female, and it is a
scientific fact that sex is determined from
conception.

 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God
created he him; male and female created he them. Gen. 1:27

Unborn children have personal characteristics
like sin and joy!

 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother
         conceive me. Psalm of David. Psalms 51:5

The Bible uses personal pronouns to describe
unborn children.

  Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before
  thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I
   ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Jeremiah 1:5

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the
Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou
son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for
that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name
JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew
                           1:20,21

The Bible declares that God knows the unborn
personally and intimately, just as He would know
any other person.

  My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in
   secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the
30 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect;
   and in thy book all my members were written, which in
 continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of
                   them. Psalm 139:15,16

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before
thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I
ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Jeremiah 1:5

The Bible declares that the unborn are even called
by God before birth.

   And the children struggled together within her; and she
 said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of
  the Lord. And the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in
   thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated
 from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than
the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. Gen.
                            25:22,23.

And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the
Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren
and bare not. And the angel of the Lord appeared unto the
woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and
bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son. Now
therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong
drink, and eat not any unclean thing: For, lo, thou shalt
conceive and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his
head: for the child shalt be a Nazarite unto God from the
womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of
the Philistines. Then the woman came and told her husband,
saying, A man of God came unto me, and his countenance
was like the countenance of an angel of God, very terrible:
but I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his
name: But he said unto me, Behold, thou shalt conceive, and
bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither
eat any unclean thing: for the child shall be a Nazarite to
God from the womb to the day of his death. Judges 13:2-7
31 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING




 Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far;
The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of
       my mother hath he made mention of my name.

 And now, saith the Lord that formed me from the womb to
be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be
 not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord,
        and my God shall be my strength. Isaiah 49:1,5

But when it pleased God, who separated me from my
mother’s womb, and called me from my mother’s womb,
and called me by his grace, Galatians 1:15

Scientific evidence presented by Norman Geisler in his
book on Christian Ethics certainly is consistent with
biblical passages, it being a genetic fact that a fertilized
human ovum is 100% human, the sex of the child having
been determined at conception, the female ovum having
23 chromosomes, male sperm likewise having 23
chromosomes, the normal adult human having 46
chromosomes and so at the very moment of conception
when the males sperm and female ovum unite, a new, tiny,
46 chromosome human exists.

This scientific fact therefore fully supports the
Biblical perspective that a child in the womb is
100% human and so constitutionally in Britain the
Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing declares
that all violent action taken against a child in the
womb is already a crime of murder, this Church
not even recognizing the Abortion Act of
Parliament as it promotes death and not life, a
concept not in keeping with British Constitutional
values.
32 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

Euthanasia

In today’s social climate there is tremendous pressure to
adapt the Word to suit the changing conditions, and this is
particularly acute in the area of medical ethics.

God’s Word, however, does not change even though there
might well be situations arise in Church life where
euthanasia is being considered, whether it be active,
passive or natural passive. Active euthanasia allows the
taking of a life to avoid suffering whereas passive allows
death to occur to avoid suffering.

As regards to active euthanasia, the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing standing on the
British Constitutional Acts is in no position either
Biblically or constitutionally to allow the taking of a life.

                    Thou shalt not kill. Ex. 20:13

As regards to passive and natural passive euthanasia
which allows death rather than takes life, the
Pentecostal        Holiness       Church     Continuing
understands that with a secular humanist approach this
makes sense, but Britain does not have a secular humanist
Constitution and so this cannot be allowed to take place in
Britain. God holds human beings responsible for human
life, human life being sacred for God made mankind in his
image.

 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God
created he him; male and female created he them. Gen. 1:27

Having bloodshed and violence in the earth
resulted in the flood, God not permitting the
taking of blood.

  The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was
                filled with violence. Gen. 6:11
33 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be
shed: for in the image of God made he man. Gen. 9:6

Jonah appealed to God to take his life. God did not
accept this request. In addition to this, God
certainly did not approve King Saul’s suicide and
Abimelech’s assisted suicide.

  Therefore now, o Lord, take, I beseech thee, my life from
   me; for it is better for me to die than to live. Jonah 4:3

Then said Saul unto his armourbearer, draw thy sword, and
thrust me through therewith; lest these uncircumcised come
and thrust me through, and abuse me. But his armour
bearer would not; for he was sore afraid. Therefore Saul
took a sword, and fell upon it. I Sam. 31:4

Then he called hastily unto the young man his
armourbearrer, and said unto him, Draw thy sword, and
slay me, that men say not of me, A woman slew him. And his
young man thrust him through, and he died.

 Then God rendered the wickedness of Abimelech, which he
 did unto his father, in slaying his seventy brethren: Judges
                            9:54, 56.

Biomedical Issues

New medical techniques and discoveries have brought
about new ethical issues for the Church to deal with. These
new practices include artificial insemination, test-tube
babies, surrogate mothers, organ transplantation, organ
harvesting, gene splicing and cloning.

It has to be remembered that Britain is a nation of the
Judeo-Christian tradition and so a secular humanist
approach in relation to government of biomedical issues is
strictly prohibited. The Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing standing on the British Constitutional
34 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

Acts will not allow the humanist, secular approach
to pre-emanate for this relates the answer to
decisions of patients, doctors, society, family or
whoever? Are we really to discriminate, therefore
on the basis on which we operate – age, race,
social rank? Scientist and medics can literally be
allowed to play God unless there is a Church that
stands up for the nation’s Christian Constitutional
Acts.

   And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the
 beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he
           might have the preeminence. Col. 1:18

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain
also of your own poets have said, For we are also his
offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God,
we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or
silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the
times of this ignorance God winked at; but now
commandeth all men every where to repent. Acts 18:28-30

Giving Christ Jesus the pre-eminence enables God to be
God and thus avoiding the consequences of the humanist
approach, which might cure some problems with the cost
of producing greater ones. Unless there is an
acknowledgement with medical research of the Creator,
then such research is bound to fail, the sensible motor
mechanic giving heed to the manufacturer’s handbook to
bring about the cure of a car, likewise the scientist and
doctor must give heed to God’s handbook so as to bring
about a successful conclusion.

To deal with recent medical advances the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing is committed to allow
organ transplantation, hundreds of people having had
their lives extended, its concept being completely in line
with God’s Word.
35 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

 Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life
                 for his friends. John 15:13

In allowing transplantation to continue the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing emphasizes personal choice in the
issue for no one should be forced to participate, the individual
being responsible for his own body. It is understood that the
fresher the organ is then the greater chance of success there is,
and so the Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing affirms in
this context that it is unlawful for anyone to extract an organ that
results in a person’s death. It is understood that death is difficult
to define but in general terms it is acknowledged that when
breathing, pulse, nerve reaction and brain waves have ceased then
a person is dead.

  ….. but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth
              life to them that have it. Ecc. 7:12

In relation to genetic surgery this is only permitted on the
basis of restoring life as God intended, and is not
permitted for creating, God’s will being for us to be perfect
even in a fallen world.

As regards to the scientific ability to know the sex of a baby
in a mother’s womb then this is fully acceptable; detection
being fully acceptable whereas selection is not.

In all matters, therefore, the Pentecostal Holiness
Church Continuing is committed to the concept of
marriage and the family. It is important to
understand that medical advances are to restore
and not create.

Please note - the Pentecostal Holiness Church
Continuing in stating “will allow” is relating this
comment to our nation’s Constitution, the
Protestant Church being obligated to ensure that
the Monarch adheres to Her constitutional
promises before God and does not sign acts that
36 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

allow abortion and immorality in our God-given
nation.

We acknowledge the considerable assistance in presenting
this ethical statement of the following excellent book of
Christian Ethics.

   1) In one God who exists eternally; the Father,
      the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are
      the one God; consisting of the same
      substance, co-eternal and co-equal in power
      and glory. He is self-existing and independent
      of His creation, Omnipotent, Omniscient and
      Omnipresent, God making man in his image,
      CHRIST JESUS being the image of the
      Invisible God

I John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven,
the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three
are one.

Gen. 1:26-28; 26 And God said, Let us make man in our
image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over
the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the
cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing
that creepeth upon the earth.
37 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of
God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue
it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the
fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon
the earth.

Col. 1:15,16. 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the
firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things
created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and
invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or
principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and
for him:


   2) Christ Jesus’ Deity as a Biblical Reality

i) Manifest in the Flesh and Justified in the Spirit
I Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery
of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the
Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed
on in the world, received up into glory.

ii) Equal with the Father
Phil. 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not
robbery to be equal with God:

iii) All things made “by him”, not “through him”
John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was
not any thing made that was made.

iv) Existed from “everlasting” – not “ancient times” as in
“new translations”
Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be
little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he
38 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings
forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

v) Jesus was worshipped in the New Testament
Matthew 8:2 And, behold, there came a leper and
worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make
me clean.

vi) The Judgement Seat is of Christ
Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why
dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand
before the judgment seat of Christ.

vii) Jesus had no earthly “father”
Luke 2:33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those
things which were spoken of him.

viii) Jesus is the “begotten son” – not created or made
John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only
begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath
declared him.
3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not
perish, but have everlasting life.

ix) Jesus is “The Son of God” not “a son of the gods” as in
“new translations”
Daniel 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose,
walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and
the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

x) Jesus is the “Only Lord God”
Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who
were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly
men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and
denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
39 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

xi) Christ was raised up
Acts 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God
had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins,
according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his
throne;

   3) The Everlasting Gospel – not “a” or “an”
      Gospel as in “new translations”

Rev. 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven,
having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell
on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue,
and people,
Titus 1:4 To Titus, mine own son after the common faith:
Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord
Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Acts 14:15 And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also
are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that
ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God,
which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things
that are therein:


   4) SALVATION: Redemption is through the
      BLOOD of THE SON OF GOD, the sinner
      repenting of inbred sin

Col. 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood,
even the forgiveness of sins:

I Peter 4:1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in
the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he
that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

Acts 8:37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine
heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that
Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

   5) ETERNAL PUNISHMENT is for the unsaved
      DAMNED in hell – not the “grave” or “Sheol”
      as in “new translations”

Psalms 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the
nations that forget God.

   6) JESUS IS “THE MORNING STAR” AND “DAY
      STAR” – not Lucifer as depicted in “new
      translations”

Rev. 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you
these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring
of David, and the bright and morning star.

II Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy;
whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that
shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star
arise in your hearts:

   7) THE PENTECOSTAL PIONEERS PASSION for
     the FOURSQUARE GOSPEL
       a. JESUS THE SAVIOUR, born of a virgin
        who committed no sin becoming “Sin For
        Us” II Cor. 5:21

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and
the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 3: 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the
wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but
have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave
41 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent
not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that
the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth
on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is
condemned already, because he hath not believed in the
name of the only begotten Son of God.
THIS PROCLAMATION IS OF ONE SAVIOUR,
AND ONE SAVIOUR ALONE JESUS.

        b. JESUS THE HEALER:
Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the
Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good,
and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was
with him.

The very first COVENANT PROMISE OF GOD
is in the Old Testament:

Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the
voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right
in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and
keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon
thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the
LORD that healeth thee.

Even under the Law the Priest made atonement
for leprosy six times in Leviticus 14 and in
Numbers 16: 46-48 Aaron made atonement for
plague removal.

Hebrews 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ,
who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot
to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the
living God?
42 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

Jesus commanded the Church to “lay hands on the
sick”!

Mark 16:18 ….. they shall lay hands on the sick, and they
shall recover.


                                   I am not moved by what I see

                                   I am not moved by how I feel

                                   I am moved by what I believe and

                                   I believe

                                   THE WORD OF ALMIGHTY GOD!

                                   Smith Wigglesworth



 S.W. What will make men believe the divine
promises of God? Beloved, let me say to you
today, God wants you to be ministering spirits,
and it means to be clothed with another power.
And this divine power, you know when it is there,
and you know when it goes forth.

Dr. T.J. McCrossan : Satan caused Adam and Eve
to sin then Satan is the Author of sin, sickness
and death. John 5:14; 10:10

George Jeffreys – Founder of Elim : Bible reveals
Satan as a personal devil, opposed to God and the
Human Race ....The Israelites understood that
deliverance from all bodily ailments was by the
power of God, that immunity from disease was a
privilege they could enjoy provided they
rendered perfect obedience to His will. Ex. 15:26
43 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

In Isa. 53 “griefs and sorrows” relate to sicknesses
and pain – the Hebrew words being Choli/Makob

Choli examples : Deut. 7:15; 28:6; I Kings 17:17; II
Kings 1:2; 8:8;
II Chron. 16:12; 21:15.
Makob examples : Job 14:22; 33:19

Borne (nasa) means to take away, to lift up, to
bear away, to convey, remove to a distance as with
the scapegoat Lev. 16:22

Isa 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the
arm of the LORD revealed? 2 For he shall grow up before
him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he
hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him,
there is no beauty that we should desire him. 3 He is
despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and
acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from
him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4 Surely he
hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did
esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he
was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our
iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and
with his stripes we are healed.

Matthew 8:16 When the even was come, they brought unto
him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out
the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the
prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our
sicknesses.

God has loosed the pangs of death

Acts 2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel
and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked
hands have crucified and slain: 24 Whom God hath raised
44 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not
possible that he should be holden of it.

The Hosts of Darkness have been put to nought

Hebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers
of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the
same; that through death he might destroy him that had the
power of death, that is, the devil;

Whom He Justified – He also Glorified – Not
Future Tense!

Rom. 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did
predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he
might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover
whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he
called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them
he also glorified.

In Earth – As it is in heaven ……..

Col. 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things
consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is
the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things
he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father
that in him should all fulness dwell; 20 And, having made
peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all
things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in
earth, or things in heaven.

2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made
a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Jesus always used the harsh word Epitimao to
rebuke devils and used the same word to rebuke
sickness. He talked to a “being” rather than a
“thing”.
45 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

Luke 4: 35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace,
and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in
the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. 36 And
they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying,
What a word is this! for with authority and power he
commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out. 37 And
the fame of him went out into every place of the country
round about. 38 And he arose out of the synagogue, and
entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was
taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her.
39 And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left
her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.

Luke 13: 11 And, behold, there was a woman which had a
spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together,
and could in no wise lift up herself. 12 And when Jesus saw
her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou
art loosed from thine infirmity. 13 And he laid his hands on
her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified
God. 14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with
indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath
day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which
men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed,
and not on the sabbath day. 15 The Lord then answered
him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on
the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead
him away to watering? 16 And ought not this woman, being
a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these
eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?

Luke 9:25 When Jesus saw that the people came running
together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou
dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and
enter no more into him.

Mark 9: 23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an
unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24 Saying, Let us alone;
what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art
46 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy
One of God. 25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy
peace, and come out of him.

This authority HE GAVE TO THE CHURCH; Mark
16; John 14

John 14 Who can do greater works?

John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and
the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak
not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth
the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the
Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the
works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than
these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13 And
whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the
Father may be glorified in the Son.

This authority is now even greater through the
Sons of God on earth as we now have the
completed VICTORY THROUGH CHRIST JESUS!

George Jeffreys, Founder of Elim: : We teach people
to seek bodily healing as one of the immediate benefits of
Christ's atoning and redeeming work on the cross ... not
the effect of mind over matter - but the power of Christ
over disease Acts 4:7-10

          c. JESUS – THE BAPTIZER IN THE HOLY
           GHOST

Smith Wigglesworth ... Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Beloved, all that I speak this morning is burning in my
soul. The baptism of the Spirit has come for nothing less
than to eat the whole of my life. It set up Jesus as King,
and nothing can stand in His holy presence when He is
made King. Everything will wither before Him. I am
realizing this. Smith Wigglesworth.

What an inward burning, what an inward craving God
can give! It is a taste of the heavenlies!

Acts 1:5-8.

05 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be
baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. 06
When they therefore were come together, they asked of Him,
saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the
Kingdom to Israel? 07 And He said unto them, It is not for
you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath
put in His own power. 08 But ye shall receive power, after
that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be
witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and
in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Wigglesworth's Points.

1. TO BE CONTINUALLY FULL OF HIS UTTERANCES
AND REVELATIONS AND DIVINE PERCEPTION -
CONTROLLED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
48 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

2. IS RESURRECTION POWER - NOTHING
EARTHLY CAN REMAIN - i.e. DISEASE.
ALIVE TO GOD - Rom. 6:11 by the Spirit.
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be indeed unto sin,
but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

3. HOLY GHOST = UNLIMITED SOURCE OF POWER -
NOTHING STATIONARY IN GOD -
INTO LINE WITH THE MIND OF GOD.

SEVEN STEPS TO
BEING BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY GHOST!

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy
Ghost is come UPON you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me
both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and
unto the uttermost part of the earth.

   1)     Shout and receive!

   2)     Be Ready to Receive!


Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be
baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the
remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy
Ghost.

   3)     Laying on of hands

Acts 8: 12 But when they believed Philip preaching the
things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of
Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was
baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding
the miracles and signs which were done. 14 Now when the
apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had
received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and
49 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

John: 15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them,
that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16 (For as yet he
was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the
name of the Lord Jesus.) 17 Then laid they their hands on
them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world,
and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth
and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall
be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that
believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall
speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and
if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they
shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 19 So
then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received
up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 20 And
they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord
working with them, and confirming the word with signs
following. Amen.

Acts 5:12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs
and wonders wrought among the people ( and they were all
in one accord in Solomon’s porch. …..)

   4)     Speaking in other Tongues

Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and
began to speak with other tongues, AS THE SPIRIT GAVE
THEM UTTERANCE.

Acts 10:44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy
Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. 45 And they of
the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as
came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was
poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46 For they heard
them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered
Peter,
50 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

Acts 19:6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the
Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and
prophesied.

I Cor. 14:1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts,
but rather that ye may prophesy. 2 For he that speaketh in
an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God:
for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he
speaketh mysteries. 3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto
men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.

   5)     Put aside the foolish teaching that you
          might receive something counterfeit.

Luke 11:11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a
father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for
a fish give him a serpent? 12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he
offer him a scorpion? 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to
give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall
your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask
him?

   6)     Be filled with the Spirit

Eph. 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess;
but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in
psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making
melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always
for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our
Lord Jesus Christ;

PNEUMA akin to PNEO to breathe, blow;

Gal. 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh
persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is
now. 30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the
bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman
shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. 31 So then,
51 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the
free.

5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath
made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of
bondage.

John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus
stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto
me, and drink. 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture
hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on
him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given;
because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)


   7)     Those all gathered should Pray in the Spirit

Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they
were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there
came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and
it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there
appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat
upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy
Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit
gave them utterance. 5 And there were dwelling at
Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under
heaven. 6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude
came together, and were confounded, because that every
man heard them speak in his own language.

          d. JESUS – THE SOON COMING KING


I Thess. 4: 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from
heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and
with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise
first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught
52 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the
air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and
worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly,
in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and
the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour
Jesus Christ;

Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of
many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the
second time without sin unto salvation.


   8)HOLINESS
True holiness is manifest through the Believer
who recognizes his/her own inability to keep rules
knowing that it is one’s own dying to self that is
the key to success.
Gal. 2:20; Col. 3; II Cor 7:1; 12:9; Gal. 3:3; Rom. 6
If you are a dead man – then who is left? PHCC
therefore    firmly    declares     the    need   for
sanctification after justification.

Gal. 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet
not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in
the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me,
and gave himself for me.

Col. 3: 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in
God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall
ye also appear with him in glory.

II Cor 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved,
let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and
spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for
my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly
53 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power
of Christ may rest upon me.

Gal. 3:3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye
now made perfect by the flesh?

Rom. 6: 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized
into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore
we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as
Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the
Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For
if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death,
we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

John 17:21 Did Jesus pray that we be one in the
Father and Son? Did Jesus have a successful
prayer life? This is true holiness.

John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in
me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the
world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory
which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be
one, even as we are one:

I Cor.6:17; Eph.5:30; Jer. 3:14 Joined unto the
Lord – members of his body, flesh and bones!
Holiness!

I Cor.6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

Eph.5 30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and
of his bones. 31 For this cause shall a man leave his father
and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two
shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery: but I speak
concerning Christ and the church.
54 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

Jer. 3:14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for
I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and
two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

Rom. 12:1 What do we present holy?

Rom. 12: 1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies
of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

I John 4:17 As He is – So Are we ?

I John 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may
have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so
are we in this world.

Rom. 8:17; Gal. 4:7 What does being equal mean?

Rom. 8: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and
joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that
we may be also glorified together.

Gal. 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son;
and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

The name of the Head of the Church is JESUS as is
the NAME OF THE BODY

Rom. 11; John 15:7 If we are the branches or the
lump – how can we bear a different name?

Rom. 11:16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also
holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

John 15: 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that
abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much
55 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not
in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men
gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are
burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye
shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Matt. 5:48; 19:21; II Tim. 3:16,17; Eph. 4:11,12;
Phil.2:5; Eph.4:24; Col. 1:27-29; I Peter 1:16; 5:10;
Heb. 6:1; 10:14; James 1:4; Are we called to be
perfect?

Matt. 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father
which is in heaven is perfect.

19: 21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell
that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have
treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

II Tim. 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and
is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be
perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Eph. 4: 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets;
and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the
ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

Phil.2: 5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ
Jesus:

Eph.4: 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God
is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Col. 1: 27 To whom God would make known what is the
riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which
is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 28 Whom we preach,
warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom;
56 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his
working, which worketh in me mightily.

I Peter 1: 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

5: 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his
eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a
while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

Heb. 6: 1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of
Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the
foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith
toward God,

10: 14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them
that are sanctified.

James 1: 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye
may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

II Peter 1:4; Col. 1:12; Rom. 8:30; Heb. 3:14
Partakers of the divine nature and glorified?

II Peter 1: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and
precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of
the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in
the world through lust.

Col. 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made
us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in
light:

Rom. 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also
called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and
whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Heb. 3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold
the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

John 1:12-14; I Peter 1:23 Born of blood, flesh or
of God beholding whose Glory?

John 1: 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he
power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe
on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the
will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And
the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we
beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
Father,) full of grace and truth.

I Peter 1: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but
of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and
abideth for ever.

I Cor 3:16-23; II Cor 6:16-18 Is the temple of God not
holy?

I Cor 3: 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and
that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile
the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of
God is holy, which temple ye are. 18 Let no man deceive
himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this
world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19 For the
wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is
written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20 And
again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they
are vain. 21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all
things are your's; 22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas,
or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to
come; all are your's; 23 And ye are Christ's; and Christ is
God's.

II Cor 6: 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God
with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God
58 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will
be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore
come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the
Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive
you. 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my
sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

   9) FULL IMMERSION BAPTISM

It is true to say in quoting Matthew 28:19 that the terms
“Father”, Son, and “Holy Ghost” are not names but titles,
and the scripture does say to baptize “IN THE NAME!”
This can only relate to one name and this name is JESUS!

Col. 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead
bodily.

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost:
(Note “Name” is singular and “Father” “Son” “Holy Ghost”
are titles and not names)

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be
baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the
remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy
Ghost.

Acts 10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the
name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain
days.

Acts 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the
name of the Lord Jesus.

The examples of the way the Early Church baptize give
further support to baptising this way and it is not good
enough as some Trinitarians state that the instruction is to
59 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

baptize using the Trinitarian formula with the name
referring to “in the authority of”. This simply does not
make sense, but using the right formula is surely not the
essential point. This has to be the individual’s life before
God for it is with the heart we believe unto righteousness
for the letter killeth and the Spirit gives life!

Rom. 10: 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the
Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath
raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with
the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the
mouth confession is made unto salvation.

II Cor. 3: 6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new
testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter
killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

Romans 6:3 declares that those who were baptized were
baptized into the death of the Lord Jesus. This surely
places the onus on the individual’s heart rather than on
the person doing the baptizing! Has there been a
realisation that this baptism was a baptism into death?
This is the most important point for it is with the heart
that we believe unto righteousness.

This is where one of the Evangelical doctrines supported
by James A. Fowler comes in because there has to be the
Christological oneness of Christ Jesus and humanity
taking part in this process, a process that goes further with
the one being baptized being joined as one spirit with
Jesus.

Romans 6: 5 For if we have been planted together in the
likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his
resurrection:

Jer. 3:14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for
I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and
two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:
60 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

I Cor. 6: 15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members
of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make
them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 16 What? know
ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for
two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17 But he that is joined unto
the Lord is one spirit. 18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a
man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth
fornication sinneth against his own body. 19 What? know ye
not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is
in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in
your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

The conclusion coming out of this, therefore, is that surely
it is a matter between the individual and God, God seeing
the heart, the individual being baptized by the heart into
the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, the individual
confessing the name JESUS.

Whether Father, Son and Holy Ghost are expressions or
persons of the Godhead is not the essential question here
for JESUS is the fullness of the Godhead. JESUS is in the
central position here and it is his NAME being referred to
in Matthew 28. His name, however, is not to be used as a
statement of legal formula but rather a heart felt cry from
the heart. Within this context, therefore, the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing will baptize IN THE
NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND
OF THE HOLY GHOST – that is INTO THE NAME
OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST – HIS DEATH –
AND HIS RESURRECTION.

   10)       The “Every Creature Commission”

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing fully
endorses the position taken by Rees Howells in
1934. This relates to the heart of God which is to
reach every creature with the Gospel, the
61 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

responsibility for this being through Christ’s body
on earth.

Matthew 9:38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that
he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

The Pentecostal Holiness Church Continuing will
emphasize missions ministry having the Sons of God
Network as its missions operation working to reach every
creature worldwide through its network membership.

This will involve worldwide prayer warfare to bring the
conditions for a great harvest all over the World. Full
commitment towards this call of God is required to fulfil
our Lord’s command and it is envisaged having a College
that is fully committed to equipping ministers for the
worldwide harvest.

As it was in the days of Joshua so the Pentecostal
Holiness Church Continuing looks to take the
promised land for the Lord, our nation Britain
having been taken over by Gnostic forces, but we
gather around these walls going through a process
of    personal    sanctification  and    personal
expectation by lifting up the genuine WORD OF
GOD high, and crossing the Jordan to realise our
vision

Joshua 3:1 And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they
removed from Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the
children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over.
2 And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went
through the host; 3 And they commanded the people, saying,
When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God,
and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove
from your place, and go after it. 4 Yet there shall be a space
between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure:
come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which
ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore.
62 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

5 And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for
to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you. 6 And
Joshua spake unto the priests, saying, Take up the ark of the
covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took up
the ark of the covenant, and went before the people. 7 And
the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify
thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I
was with Moses, so I will be with thee. 8 And thou shalt
command the priests that bear the ark of the covenant,
saying, When ye are come to the brink of the water of
Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan. 9 And Joshua said
unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words
of the LORD your God. 10 And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall
know that the living God is among you, and that he will
without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and
the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the
Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites. 11 Behold,
the ark of the covenant of the LORD of all the earth passeth
over before you into Jordan. 12 Now therefore take you
twelve men out of the tribes of Israel, out of every tribe a
man. 13 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the
feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the LORD
of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the
waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come
down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap.
14 And it came to pass, when the people removed from their
tents, to pass over Jordan, and the priests bearing the ark of
the covenant before the people; 15 And as they that bare the
ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that
bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for
Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest,)
16 That the waters which came down from above stood and
rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is
beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of
the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the
people passed over right against Jericho. 17 And the priests
that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on
63 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites
passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed
clean over Jordan.

   11)       The Just shall live BY HIS FAITH!

Hab. 2: 1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the
tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and
what I shall answer when I am reproved. 2 And the LORD
answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain
upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 3 For the vision
is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak,
and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely
come, it will not tarry. 4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is
not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

It is not with our faith that we move, but HIS FAITH. This
a powerful statement and the Pentecostal Holiness
Church Continuing will emphasize the personal “dying
to self” so as to be an empty vessel for HIS FAITH to
operate through us!

                            been living on the edge
                            of a war-zone for
                            eighteen years – seen
                            many of your loved

                            because of war –
                            perhaps it is easier for
them to die to self than for us? Is this excuse one
God will accept from us – or must we die too?

   12)   The Lord’s Supper and the Bringing of
     Tithes are the essential parts of the covenant
     meal

Melchizedek brought forth bread and wine: Gen. 14:18 And
Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine:
and he was the priest of the most high God. 19 And he
blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high
God, possessor of heaven and earth: 20 And blessed be the
most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy
hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

Jesus did the same:

I Cor. 11: 23 For I have received of the Lord that which also
I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in
which he was betrayed took bread: 24 And when he had
given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my
body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of
me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he
had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my
blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of
66 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup,
ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. 27 Wherefore
whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the
Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of
the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him
eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that
eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh
damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30 For
this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many
sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be
judged.

Jesus – High Priest forever after the order of Melchizedek

Hebrews 6:19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within
the veil; 20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even
Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of
Melchisedec.

Hebrews 7: 1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of
the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the
slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; 2 To whom also
Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by
interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also
King of Salem, which is, King of peace; 3 Without father,
without mother, without descent, having neither beginning
of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God;
abideth a priest continually. 4 Now consider how great this
man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the
tenth of the spoils.

Ye are “Abraham’s” seed and like Abraham we bring forth
tithes to the Table of the Lord – we give and HE GAVE - a
covenant meal

Gal. 3: 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into
Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor
Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male
67 www.pentecostalcontinuing.org Restoring the Heritage
PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH CONTINUING

nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be
Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to
the promise

   14)    The Divine Inspiration and Authority of
     the Holy Scriptures coming along the Antioch
     line only rather than the Gnostic influenced
     “scriptures” of Alexandria.

II Tim. 3: 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be
perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Acts 18: 24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at
Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures,
came to Ephesus. 25 This man was instructed in the way of
the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and
taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the
baptism of John. 26 And he began to speak boldly in the
synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they
took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of
God more perfectly.
