Re: Holy Spirit really moved Sunday in Church any other reports
I SO wish I could experience this. My family is resigned to Home Church because all the churches in our area are so dead, it's pathetic! When we go, we bring the Holy Spirit with us and try to spark the fire but are asked to leave. Traditions and doctrines of men are far more convenient in today's churches.

Glad you got to experience this. He is coming for those who are on FIRE for Him. Not the lukewarm, but the lukewarm will certainly try to convince you otherwise based on their own false doctrines. *sigh*

Let it RAIN, indeed! We need a Revival in this world like never before!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33585838


Asking for a rain of doom on others is naive at best, it would be much better if it can be gracefully, true peace cannot be forced such a way as it's all about grace. The world likes to force things down the throat, I doubt that I have to name examples as you already mentioned one. Tradition and doctrines are a very explosive mix when combined with pride, and there is no shortage of that I can assure you. All about keeping on the heading of doom as long we are in the perceived safety of a flock than to stand alone and think for yourself with both your heart and brain. Besides, in the end we all die alone, maybe it's better to get our act together in known, while we live, than in the unknown/death.

One would think that looking after the younger generation would be enough reason, no matter what race and class they are, I think that Earth also deserves better after all the rape and wars, the boycott of cannabis is evidence enough, it even became a doctrine that people shouldn't question, even if the National Cancer Institute acknowledges possible anti-tumor effects in cannabis. Imagine that with cancer on the rise, doctrines and pride make deaf, but they'll have to face reality eventually, hopefully the graceful way.
 Quoting: RaXz


You have a misunderstanding going on here. The person was talking about the raining down of the Holy Spirit, not for doom. Old time Spirit filled churches used this term to mean they were on "fire" for God, not in a doom sense at all. When the Spirit pours down, we called it raining down and being on fire, it was a total spiritual experience and term. Nothing to do with doom and gloom
 Quoting: whiteangel


Oops, my mistake, I guess I am used to people preaching and wishing for doom around here, I should be more careful not to think that automatically around these parts, or maybe I'm just weary.hf

i read it in a book, and it was based on a time long ago in a galaxy far away. then me and a bunch of people hung out and talked about it and we were feeling all euphoric from all the hot air we were spewing! praise be the skywalkers!

Oh wait, I know where the misunderstanding came from, I was more talking about rain instead of RAIN, the latter came off as aggressive to me, I think it's more about whispers than screams, but that's me.

 Quoting: Goofy for God


When that happens it usually means the Pastor didn't have or take time to prepare a message. In that case, they usually just let the church go wild and get their Holy Ghost rocks off.

Re: Holy Spirit really moved Sunday in Church any other reports
I was raised in a pentecostal church. It was at it's biggest about 50 people, so not that large. I remember people dancing, laughing, and falling over with "the spirit". In my adult life, I've never felt anything similar except once when I was praying and was overcome with the giggles, I was by myself when it happened. It was quite a joy though.
 Quoting: Holldoll


This is a general question not directed toward you, but where did we as a people get this "slain in the spirit" falling down and acting like a fool?

There isn't a record that I know of in the Bible about that other than having an unclean spirit manifesting.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5786799


That's exactly what I was thinking. Laughing and being "overcome with the giggles" doesn't sound like the Holy Spirit to me. I think it's more like crying and falling on your knees in repentance, like the original thread post said.

One should be careful when talking about the gifts of the Holy Spirit to those who have NOT experienced these things. People who are filled, understand this, but those who have never felt the Spirit move on their soul, get scared, think it is evil and many other things. Just know, that if you ever experience the overwhelming filling of the Holy Spirit, you will then understand how some of the "crazy" things happen.

Being slain in the Spirit isn't acting like a fool, rather giving yourself up totally to God. It just looks foolish to those who are not familiar with this experience. I could tell you over and over how it feels, but unless you have experienced this, you will never understand. If you want to experience this oneness with God, then you must pray for full forgiveness and then ask for it. In Jesus' Name you are forgiven and by His comforter you are carried day to day.

BTW, I haven't experienced any of this for decades, though I still have felt the Holy Spirit guide me in day to day life.

God Bless!

Re: Holy Spirit really moved Sunday in Church any other reports
By the way, Sun-day is not Yah's appointed sabbath.


Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5786799


AMEN you are EXACTLY right!! People worshipping on Sunday are bowing to a command of the catholic church and NOT following scripture!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1580547


There is one time the Sabbath is mentioned after Paul began to focus on the Gentiles, “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.” (Colossians 2:16–17). The Jewish Sabbath was abolished at the cross where Christ “canceled the written code, with its regulations” (Colossians 2:14).
 Quoting: Adventus Domini


And that is NOT talking about the WEEKLY sabbath, but the Feast Days that were also called sabbaths! The weekly sabbath was NOT a shadow of things to come, it was instituted at creation LONG before a Jew ever walked the earth! The feast days though, such as the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Passover, etc. which were also called sabbath days WERE a shadow of things to come and were done away at the cross because Christ FULFILLED the book of the law written by Moses! The 10 commandments were written in tables of stone by the FINGER OF GOD HIMSELF, and NOT entrusted to man! STOP confusing the law that was nailed to the cross and the 10 commandment moral law of God that's been here for eternity! Without that law there is NO SIN, because the Bible tells us that "sin is the transgression of the law" Romans 4:15 .... if there is NO sin then satan would still be in heaven and NEVER cast out!!

How about if someone came to your house, stole your car, killed your kids and then committed adultery with your husband? Would you still feel the same way? It's idiocy for people to think God doesn't have a moral standard or a law! Please people don't believe this foolishness that God doesn't still have a moral law and that moral law STILL includes the 4th commandment that starts with the word REMEMBER that most all Christians want to FORGET!! What a joke!

You are good. Totally understandable why old time Pentecostals were called Holy rollers and Jesus Freaks. Yes as Believers we should be praying for His return, but a mature believer also knows that means "time is up" and they don't want that either. They want as many saved as possible. I hope you understand that fundamental part of a Believer's prayer for Jesus to return quickly, we don't want doom, rather we want Heaven !

We started to sing and The Holy Spirit filled the music, I got goose bumps and started crying, not just me but many, then people got on their knees and started praying, then Worship team kept playing, then a lady gave a beautiful prolific word, this went on for over an hour and Pastor came up and said Holy Spirit moving lets just keep going . So we sang for long time and the Pastor ask if anyone needed prayer or healing , everyone got up in the end went to front and prayedsmile_hear Just Wow is all I can say

I hope that you aren't suggesting that I don't understand and need to understand it quickly. I rather pray that the world repents gracefully, personally I am not waiting for someone that brings a platter full of fish, if Jesus is already inside me I can do the fishing myself with his gracious guidance, and next to that living in tomorrow isn´t my thing, I rather live in the now, how horrid it may be, so I can see what surrounds me more clearly.

Don´t really care about heaven myself, I rather want to help those in need now, the rest I might see in time, or maybe not, I don´t want to do it for a reward, otherwise I´ll be like a domesticated dog.

speaking in tongues has passed away. speaking in tongues is actual human languages of other nations, not glosalalia.
there is no scripture that says the ONLY evidence of receiving the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues. there are many different gifts of the Spirit.

please, people, do not believe this major deception from your adversary.

Salt is exactly uncorrect. I used to make fun of the pentecostal people when I was a teenager. Never make fun of something you do not know about. I was taught all my life this was fake. Until I received the Baptisim of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. The Holy Spirit opens of a whole new world for you. The Bible has more meaning than ever before.

Yes, yes, yes. I used to make fun of them on TV, raising their hands, crying, carrying on. Now I treasure these experiences. The Holy Spirit brings dry bones to life. The Holy Spirit is alive.

Re: Holy Spirit really moved Sunday in Church any other reports
I was raised in a pentecostal church. It was at it's biggest about 50 people, so not that large. I remember people dancing, laughing, and falling over with "the spirit". In my adult life, I've never felt anything similar except once when I was praying and was overcome with the giggles, I was by myself when it happened. It was quite a joy though.

This is a general question not directed toward you, but where did we as a people get this "slain in the spirit" falling down and acting like a fool?

There isn't a record that I know of in the Bible about that other than having an unclean spirit manifesting.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5786799


That's exactly what I was thinking. Laughing and being "overcome with the giggles" doesn't sound like the Holy Spirit to me. I think it's more like crying and falling on your knees in repentance, like the original thread post said.

You my friend have hit the nail on the head. The whole Bible is about repentance and doing God's will, no one can show me in the Bible where people fell backwards, if you will read the Bible all the Holy men of Old fell on their faces when they spoke with God or even when an angel approached them. If anyone needs scripture, I will take the time to look it up.

The power of the Holy Spirit is ALWAYS moving. It's the vessels that sometimes fail to allow it.

Interesting how we mortals have more power than the Holy Ghost - are able to resist it.

Re: Holy Spirit really moved Sunday in Church any other reports
OP, did anybody receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues?

Did your pastor lay hands on those that are sick and did they recover?

Did your pastor cast out any demons?

 Quoting: Goofy for God




I am a fundamental, born again, authentic Bible believing Christian.
I want to caution you not to lose the truth of the gospel with pentecostal "signs and wonders"
God has promised us eternal life and The Cross.
The supernatural, the miraculous does not necessarily mean that the work is of the Holy Spirit. Buddhists and other ungodly people perform miracles. Test the Sprits to see whether they are from God.

The Holy Spirit works in our hearts and lives to give us love, joy, kindness, goodness, patience, peace, self-control. The Holy Spirit is the practical power that God wants us to use in our life to glorify Him and live a righteous, successful life. The Holy Spirit indwells us, seals us, helps us to live the Christian life, helps us to pray, helps us to understand Scripture and helps us to witness to others. Don't get caught up in confusion, signs and wonders.

Be very careful and do not let high emotions get you confused with the true works of God.

Being slain in the spirit and being overcome with the giggles is not Biblical....these pentecostal "phenomena" are definitely not from the living Creator God and Holy Spirit....it is satanic.
