Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
hey rep/backslider..
i was having this conversation just today with a friend of mine so i decided to google it-i happened upon your post and to my amazement we both described the same exact thing you described it as......
there are scriptures that refer to this-i have to find them- but just wanted to say there are others who have had that experience-the bottom line is- God is real and will reveal himself to people in different ways
-take care

Re: 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.

I admit curiosity as to the actual substance that creates this smell

but I truly enjoy the phenomena just the way it is
 Quoting: rb 360686

you are probably sensing the smell with a spiritual gift (discernment)
it's probaby not a physical smell
or anyone could smell it

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.

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."

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
OP - could you pray that I get a real baptism of the Holy Spirit? I want to be completely overtaken by Him!


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.

that God will give you the desire of your heart
to be totally immersed AND filled with the Holy Spirit

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
It happened to me at least two maybe three times in the late 90's. I was sitting in a pew waiting for the church service to start. All of a sudden I smelled inscence. I looked around to see If I could see anyone burning insence or if anyone else could smell it. The church that I was at did not use inscense. So it always puzzled me that I could smell it. As a child I attended the Catholic church with my parents and I remember the priest walking through the church with inscence and I will never forget the smell.

I've really thought about it and I believe it was from God. I've questioned what it means or symbolizes. So I did a search to see if anyone could smell the Holy Spirit. I came across this site. It seems an odd thing to search for at the moment but I was listening to a sermon about building an altar in ones life. Finding that place where you personally take the time and meet with God and for some reason it popped in my mind to search out the topic. If God does allow a person to smell this scent through the Holy Spirit, I wonder why? The only thing that I can think of is to research Incense and what it symbolizes in terms of God through his spirit.


Please pray for my Father he is recovering from a horrible cancer that almost took his life.

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
I found this to be a good answer

Revelation 5;8 (NLT) "They held gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of God’s people."

Revelation 8:3-4 (NLT) "And a great amount of incense was given to him to mix with the prayers of God’s people as an offering on the gold altar before the throne. 4 The smoke of the incense, mixed with the prayers of God’s holy people, ascended up to God from the altar where the angel had poured them out."

Revelation 8: 3-4 (Message)"He (angel) was given a great quantity of incense so that he could offer up the prayers of all the holy people of God on the Golden Altar before the Throne. Smoke billowed up from the incense-laced prayers of the holy ones, rose before God from the hand of the Angel."

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
If you have a Relationship With The Father, you KNOW HIM.

If you Know HIM, you Know HIM intimately enough to recognize HIS Presence, Witness, Revelations, and all the other Gifts of The Holy Spirit HE Bestows upon you. Those you have experienced.

If you have chosen to depart from HIM, consciously chosen to spurn HIM by choosing sin over HIS Will, then you remain alienated from HIM and are simply confused.


So, what is your deal, OP? Did you ever repent of your sins, ask HIM for help not to sin ever again and resubmit yourself to HIS Will? Or are you just smelling things, wishing you could have it like it once was for you.

I have been In-HIS Presence and received many Witnesses, including recent ones, Scripturally. I have never actually "smelled" HIM. HE IS afterall Spirit.

My witness about Knowing HIS Touch and Scent is metaphorical, like; IF you Know HIM, you recognize HIS Presence in your life like your own parents' or brother/sister.

Born-Again Christians do not continue to sin.
Ezekiel 36:26 Witnesses this.

If you have not repented and received HIS Acceptance back into HIS Accord, whatever you think, you are not HIS at this time. You spurned HIM, turned your back on HIM; not vice-versa. You have an ammends to make to God. May HE Bless your way and Enable your reunion, In Jesus' Name I pray. Someone has to be the last prodigal to return. I hope it can be you.

Ive been meaning to reply...Do you know the Bible verse:

"All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia..." - Psalm 45:8

There is a website where a couple sells candles inspired by this verse. I saw them on the local news channel. Perhaps you should try some and see if it is similar to what you are experiencing. (No, I am not affiliated with them!)

Google: "His Essence" candles.

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
Dear Sir in response to your question. I would like also to agree with you in your experience of the Holy Spirit.

First let them remember that those who are not Born Again have not the light Nor the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to understand or comprehend that which is being discussed here by those who have received one of the GREATEST GIFT'S the FATHER has bequeathed to his errant children. The First being HIS Holy SON our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST. All hail and glory to you Most HOLY 'I AM' and forever and ever to your Most Holy Son our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST and into eternity HIS Most HOLY SPIRIT the Most HOLY PARACLETE!"

I too was once like those who choose to mock and sling accusations. I too am highly self-educated and very versed in the art of warfare. I too use to laugh at those who would cloak themselves with the simpleton's cloak of religion. I thought power was in knowledge and the ability to kill and destroy other men with my weapon issued to me by the land of my birth. I thought that power resided at the end of my M4-A2. I use to think that with enough men and weapons I could storm the gates of heaven.

I have achieved many physical feats from weightlifting records to Martial arts champion, to awards for my shooter's accuracy. I have been in over 200 fight's in my life, some from private security, some from warfare, some from just a good bar fight on sat. Night. I never fought a man unless he was much bigger or I was out numbered by at least 2-3. I am not boasting, those who know me would say I am under-reporting my abilities. (Yes, I have gotten my but kicked, yes I have been knocked the f*@k out, and yes I have been beaten with the scars to prove it) That's what made me so good I learned from my many early failures.


I was a 250lb juiced up killing machine. Afraid of no one. Cause I was never a fighter. They never trained us to be fighters. They trained us to be killers.

Then, my flesh failed me. I got sick, real sick. My body failed me, my flesh went weak, and then I was just a 168lb husk waiting, wanting to die. I could not even stand to look in a mirror at what I had fallen to. I thought I was powerful. I thought I was a Master of the Universe. All it took to bring me down an errant cell which decided to replicate in an unhealthy manner. First one then ten then million. All in my abdomen. I never knew pain like that. I could not wear clothes because the elastic band on the underwear hurt too much.

The pain seemed to fill my entire body then being with agony. The pain knew no bounds. Things not related to the problem would hurt. There were days that the very hair on my head with throb and sting me. I never knew your hair could hurt.

Everything I believed in flesh, guns, bullets, rage, anger, hate, all that I had used as fuel to live my life was now worthless.

No one came to my deathbed. Why would they. It was then that by chance during one of my darker days I heard a man say the name "Jesus Christ." Something inside of me jumped and I knew, don't ask me how, I knew that this was a life line. I also knew that this was the last time that I would be given such a chance. So, I said to the man...."I need some of that."



3yrs later after going to every alter call, every church service; the LORD had mercy upon one such as me. On that common Wednesday night service at Believer's Fellowship with my head bowed the Most HOLY 'I AM' came into my life and filled my Soul with the in-filling of the HIS The Most HOLY SPIRIT -- The HOLY PARACLETE.

There I am in a large auditorium with about maybe 200 other people present. I am sitting by myself with my head bowed crying out to THE LORD JESUS CHRIST please give me this gift, your MOST HOLY SPIRIT.

Then it happened.....

All of the sudden I felt like someone plugged a 220 watt into my side. My body and mind begin to fill with power. Not electric power but a power that was warm, edifying, filling. My entire being began to expand to accommodate this new power. I grew larger and larger as more and more power filled me. It did not fill my mind but it freed my mind from its flesh anchor. This allowed me to receive more power then ever possible in my flesh body. My sight was filled with a light so bright, so awesome that I could not look directly at it. Though, it never hurt, it was never painful. I felt a peace fill my soul that I NEVER EVER experienced in my entire life. Infact my entire life was one of running just fast enough forward so that the agony and pain never caught up with me. Now, I was being filled with a pure peace which did not ask anything in return.

Then, it was then that I smelled and was filled completely with a perfect scent...it was vanilla, sandal-wood, mixed with warm/cool yellow-white light. Do not ask me to explain. That is the best I can do in human terms. That scent was so perfect, so calming, so peaceful, so soothing, its very presence gave me great joyful peace and rest.

(So YES, I too have smelled the presence of the HOLY PARACLETE!!!)

There is MUCH more but I have to go to work. So GOD BLESSES those who are still seeking the TRUTH of JESUS CHRIST.

I say this to all the unbelievers. I ask you if you do not believe then....Ask JESUS CHRIST to prove HIS existence to YOU. ASK HIM to make HIMSELF known to you. Ask HIM to SAVE your eternal Soul from damnation.

P.S. There is a HELL. When I died I went there. It is beyond any horror you have ever experienced in this life I promise you. And No JESUS didn't condemn me. I DID! When I reviewed my life I KNEW I DESERVED TO go HELL. and when I was sliding down into that fire and it caught on me and I began to scream. I will NEVER forget that entire body / mind/ soul searing agony. There was no place for my mind to hide as the fire raged through my entire being. Closing my eyes meant nothing. I tried to pass out but could not. I tried to stop screaming so I could call for help, but the white hot pain would not yield my throat.

Had JESUS CHRIST not come for me I would still be there screaming and burning for the rest of eternity.

Ask JESUS to make HIMSELF known to you! Hey, if it's all fake what do you have to lose?
