It is noteworthy that the Pentecostal movement has been spreading rapidly throughout the length and breath of the world as the literal fulfillment of the prophecy of Joel, “In the last days I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh. (Joel 2:28)” Historically, the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues was manifested at Topeka, Kansas in 1901 as in the day of Pentecost. It is evident from the news report about it, which was published in Topeka on January 14, 1901 “Apostolic believers were filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke in other tongues. They had tremendous faith and they met their needs through prayer. They had all the characteristics of the apostles of Jesus Christ.” It is amazing to know that two revivals took place in Kerala in 1873 and 1895 with the manifestation of speaking in tongues many years before the Kansas revival.
