I fully believe God’s Spirit inhabited the Pentecostal movement of the 1930s and beyond, but, due to abuses and lack of grounding in Torah, the movement eventually lost its way.
On the other hand, I’ve seen Torah-grounded congregations completely dead and lacking in the Spirit. I’ve seen atheist Orthodox Jews – that is, Jews practicing Judaism for the sake of Jewishness, not out of trusting in God; no life-giving Spirit within.
What we need is a kind of Pentateuchal-Pentecostal; Pentateuchal in that we are grounded in God’s practical life instructions in the Torah, Pentecostal in that we are filled with God’s life-giving Spirit.
I think it’s no coincidence that both the Torah and the Spirit were both given and manifested on the Feast of Shavuot. Both are needed within God’s assembly, and they both look ahead to Shavuot, the Feast of Tabernacles, where God will tabernacle with his people in both spirit and reality.
