I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
this phenomenon happened to me in the 90's when I was way into God, the Bible, and fellowship.

the aroma is sweet and spicy, like an ancient fragrance. I feel incredibly empowered and edified by it.

I've only caught whiffs of it over the past several years, occasional and fleeting

He came back in a big way last night at a revival, and the fragrance stayed for hours.

He's still right here, I discern Him through scent. Does anyone else experience this?

It's the anointing and its back.

If anyone needs prayer, also let me know... I'll be happy to pray a powerful prayer of faith at this time.

Could be Abramelin Oil. Used on the physical to have a linked substance to manifest in the Light, I suppose it could go the other way sometimes.

Dismas, I pray that the Father of Lights shall grant you all the desires of your heart. In Jesus name.

That's a tricky thing to wish for. We can't serve God and mammon.

It will be easer for a camel to go through the eye of the needle than for a rich man to go to heaven.

I personally have received all the desires of my heart, and ended up broken and unhappy.

It turns out what I wanted and needed all along was already there. Jesus in my heart.

I have a DSM-IV category or two going on.

the last time I saw a guy with a bunch of letters after his name, he didn't recommend medication. first time in my adult life.

I was very proud and happy.

I minored in psych. without God, it's nearly impossible to help people with these sorts of problems.

pray for me, for wisdom and discernment.

the spirit of confusion comes from the other side.

* 8 parts Cinnamon essential oil

Please pray for my father...he is suffering every day with Parkinson's Disease. He is young. Only 61. Many people with the disease are not in any pain, however, he is in constant pain due to dystonia (abnormal muscle tone/contractions). He says he feels like he's being burned with blow torches. I've prayed for years that he would be healed, but he's only gotten worse. Maybe if you feel the Holy Spirit your prayers will be heard? Thank You.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 341282


I took plenty of hallucinogens

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

I repented of this evil, and chose God.'

"I hold fast to your statutes, O LORD;
do not let me be put to shame." psalm 119:31

"Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me again, saying, “Go, take the scroll that is open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.” So I went to the angel and told him to give me the little scroll. And he said to me, “Take and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey." rev. 10:8-9

I used to trip on this verse when frying.

the thing about hallucinations is, they aren't really edifying or life-changing. phenomenal spiritual experiences are.

"By their fruits you shall know them" Matt. 7:16

when someone has a revelation, it MUST line up with the Word of God

and it needs to manifest fruit in the building and edifying of the individual and ultimately the Kingdom

I find the aroma edifying and it empowers me to speak the Truth boldly in love

 Quoting: Raised Crow


is it delightful? and edifying? are you worshipping and praying in the Spirit when it happens?

if so, I can hope it's your discernment of the Spirit of the Living God falling afresh on you

This is a time of revival and renewal. refreshment is coming upon the Kingdom and its kids.

Father, I stand on your Word praying in faith, believing in agreement with this troubled person that this Parkinsons would be entirely healed, or go into remission to such a degree that this 61 year old dad would be restored.

I pray this not for our sake, but for the sake of Your Kingdom -- if this person and his father see results from this prayer of faith, they can use it to help build the Kingdom. I stand in the gap right now in intercessory prayer and pray the blood of Jesus over this entire situation. Bind the enemy and his emissaries from this troubled man right now. Send angels all around and do Your divine will.

I pray that people of faith will come to him, and lay hands upon him and he will recover. I stand on Your Word, Matthew 16:18, "...they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

In Jesus' name

I've been told the Holy Spirit is a He

and I stand on the Word of God that He is:

JOHN 14:15-17: "If you love me you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father and He will give you another Comforter to be with you forever - the Spirit of Truth. The world cannot accept him because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him for he lives with you and will be in you."

JOHN 14:25, 26: "All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you."

JOHN 15:26: "When the Comforter comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me."

JOHN 16:7,8: "But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment...."

JOHN 16:13-15: "But when he, the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own, he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it know to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you."

I've never smelled Frankensicence to my knowledge. That's a tough word to spell!

 Quoting: ADC 208499


Heavenly Father,

I pray in the name of Jesus that you would lead this one to the people you have ready to lay hands on him and impart the Spirit -- that he may be empowered to express Your will for him in everything he thinks, says, and does

In Jesus name I pray in faith, believing...

In Acts there's a couple of examples of this baptism, I believe we need the laying on of hands by elders in a church where it's practiced. I recommend a pentacostal or charismatic church... it happened for me at Calvary Chapel in 1980

Seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened, ask and it shall be given...

It is entirely correct and proper to desire and ask for the Holy Spirit and His power

Love you, find the people today -- I think it takes the laying on of hands.
