For much of the twentieth century and from its earliest roots, Pentecostal ism has been understood and interpreted as grounded upon the ecstatic founding of the Church (Pentecost). While this grounding of faith in an event of God encounter engenders an openness to the Holy Spirit, it also places emphasis on spiritual experience rather than on the form of life that facilitates such experience. This misplacement of emphasis easily leads to unbalanced forms of the Christian life. This paper, using primarily the exam ple of John the Baptizer as prophet, is an attempt to recover a more fluid and open Pentecostal dynamic that remains grounded in a life centered in God (ecstasis), while at the same time remaining open to moments of God encounter (ecstasy).
