Third Blessing

This cartoon, with Satan grasping the country, was published on the front cover of The Burning Bush, one of the more radical of the Wesleyan-Holiness magazines. Its editors often picked fights, settled scores, and attempted to undermine the ministries of those with whom they disagreed in such cartoons. In this case, they have classed the Apostolic Faith Movement with the work of John Alexander Dowie at Zion, Illinois, and Mary Baker Eddy’s Christian Science. One of the reasons for doing this is that there had been a recent fight within Holiness circles over the number of works of grace. Most Holiness people argued for two, salvation and sanctification. The theory that there were three had been condemned by most Holiness people before the Azusa Street revival. When they heard that Parham and Seymour were arguing that the baptism in the Spirit came upon those who had been sanctified, they assumed it to be a third work of grace. Parham and Seymour merely viewed it as an experience of power on the sanctified life.
