The Author Of The Belgic Confession On 16th-Century Pentecostalism

There be some who have daily some new command from God, to make known unto their brothers and strangers. Some are rapt into an ecstasy and have their appearance and countenance changed, lying upon the ground certain hours. Some tremble and quake for two or three hours together; after that, when they are come back to their senses, they prophesy and speak strange things as if they had been in another world or as if they had fallen from heaven: and they account to have that in common with the Apostle, when he was taken up into the third heaven.

—Guy de Bres, The Rise and Spring of the Anabaptists (1555).
