Explore overwhelming evidence that reveals how the gifts of the Holy Spirit not only have existed in the centuries since the early apostles, but have also survived the Middle Ages, the politicized church of Europe, and have experienced a spectacular revival this century.

Ireneaus, known as the disciple of Polycarp, the disciple of the apostle John, wrote of tongues, miracles, prophecy, healing, foreknowledge, casting out demons, raising the dead, and many other supernatural occurrences happening among the brethren in his own day.
