EXPLANATORY of Dixon Person and Ministry Holy Spirit
WHILE the writer was evangelizing in Europe, he received a letter from his friend, A. C. Dixon, of Baltimore, requesting his help in organizing and supervising a Conference in that city. On my return home Mr. Dixon visited me, and together we sketched the programme of the subjects, nominated speakers, and arranged concerning dates and details. On Mr. Dixon’s return to Baltimore he consulted with the pastors, who, with him, formed a committee to prosecute the work in the city. To this earnest committee is due, under God, the great success which crowned the Convention.
The pleasant task of correspondence with speakers and adjustment of subjects fell to my lot, as on other similar occasions. Many brethren, originally appointed to present the subjects, were detained in various ways, but others cheerfully undertook the office of teacher. The promise, ” Them that honour Me I will honour,” sustained our faith, and God permitted our ears to hear marvelous things throughout this four days’ meeting.
The following is the text of the circular letter, which explains itself:
Bible Schools, Christian Conventions, and Theological Conferences have been multiplying themselves, of late years, throughout this and other lands. The result has been a revived interest in Bible Study, and a more Scriptural method of preaching and teaching the Divine Word on the part of pastors, evangelists, and other fellow-laborers.
Many of these Conferences and Conventions have been of a special character, notably those held in New York and Chicago for the consideration of Prophetic Themes, and that held in Philadelphia for the vindication of Bible Inspiration.
It is now thought best to hold a Four Days’ Meeting in the City of Baltimore, where THE GLORIOUS PERSON AND MANIFOLD MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT shall form the subject of teaching. The invitation comes from a number of Pastors who cordially invite their fellow-Christians of every name to assemble with them during the four days commencing with Tuesday, October 29th. Many of the speakers who took part in previous Conferences, in addition to well-known Pastors and Seminary Professors, will present carefully prepared addresses on this vital theme.
That there is a tendency to practically ignore the Presence and Ministry of the Spirit in the professing church is painfully noticeable. To warn against this declension and to recall believers to a more practical recognition of His presence and relations to the church, and the world, is the object aimed at in thus calling together the disciples of our Lord. Carnality in the church or in the individual can only be met and overcome by an increase of, and an intensity of the Holy Spirit’s Ministry in our midst.
The Conference will be inter-denominational, and an expression of the vital union of believers with one another in Jesus Christ.
Names of speakers, hours of sessions, and place of meeting will be duly announced.
GEO. C. NEEDHAM, A. C. DIXON,
On behalf of Committee. JOHN F. PULLEN, Treasurer,
12 East Fayette Street.
The Convention was held in the Mt. Vernon Place M. E. Church, Baltimore, and the attendance upon all the sessions was very large. Its four days were days of heaven upon earth.
At one time no less than one hundred ministers requested prayer for the fullness of the Holy Ghost. Appeals have come from other cities for like Conferences, but as yet we have been too much occupied with evangelistic labors to comply with the request. We purpose, D. V., when opportunity offers, to multiply such meetings for the consideration and elucidation of this great theme The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit.
Mr. Dixon, in editing the book, has thought it best to publish the addresses just as they were furnished by the speakers. Such repetitions as have occurred are necessary to a full understanding of the subject in hand. They are now sent forth in the present form with much prayer that the gift of power through the indwelling of the Spirit may rest upon every reader.
