The following is the author's introduction to this book from 1894. "Many, oh! so many of God's dear children are living on the wrong side of Pentecost, living on the same plane as that on which the disciples were living before they were filled with the Holy Ghost; and thus by their lives practically making the sad confession, 'We did not so much as hear whether the Holy Ghost was given, or whether there be any Holy Ghost.' The object of this little work is to call their attention to their Birthright, to the fact that the Fullness of the Spirit is the Birthright of every believer. God wants us to be living this side of Pentecost, not the other side. In much fear and trembling, because of its inadequateness, but with earnest and unceasing prayer to Him Who has been pleased before today to choose the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; with the prayer that He would graciously do so again, I send this little messenger forth on its mission, trusting that the reading of it may be as great a blessing to every reader as the writing of it has been to the writer."
