H.Rs baptizm of the HolyGhost

At 26, Had already had a great outpouring from God,cleaning me,removing the seed of sin,and getting me(temple)ready for the infilling of the HolyGhost. I was thinking this should be easy,because I had such a hard time recieving sanctification,(many long nights in prayer) Well, I found myself starting all over in spending long hours at the alter again. All kinds of thoughts are tossed in my head,such as ,you already recieved,and your holding up service again people want to go home,and so on.But I wanted to make sure,so I kept pressing. every service I would think I’m not leaving without it.(baptism) but it is very hard on the flesh on your knees for hours,legs go to sleep,cramps everywhere. so around midnight,I was beat. I came in on sunday night service about 6,thinking and feeling like a race horse at the gate,ready to recieve. As I walk in the door,the preacher says,we are having a men’s meeting in the back,something simple, I didn’t want no meeting,I wanted to get my baptizm! So while in the meeting I could feel fire in my heart,and I don’t have a clue what the meeting was for. After about a half hour,chuch started at 630 on sundays. we went into the main church. The fire was gone! Oh no I had to get it back!, so at the beginning of the service,the church was asked to gather at the front for prayer requests and have a short prayer. Not me,when I hit that alter I stayed,right on through the whole service,but nothing, as people were leaving around 830 or 9, a few stayed and prayed with me,I stood up,because I was hurting in the legs but still praying, my pastor stood on 1 side and his son,the piano player on the other,and prayed and I prayed,hands in the air until they hurt, suddenly a white light,the size of a baseball,hit me between the eyes,the next thing I knew,I was on the floor backward, didn’t feel the fall, all I could see was white,I could feel wind blowing across me and electricity running through me like rivers,very strong!! my face and lips trembled and shook,as if I could speak in tongues,but they came later.I don’t know exactly how long I was down but when the power left, it was after 12, As I tried to get up,everything in view was spinning like as if I got of a spinning fair ride,minutes later the spinning slowly stopped,and I could see where I was. light headed to the point,my wife had to drive me home, 28 years later,I can still feel the fire!! praise God Its real, and still waiting for those who HUNGER and THIRST ,they shall be filled. amen

    John 14:16 – “I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper.”

    Jesus said that the Father would send the Comforter to abide with us forever. Pentecost fulfilled that promise (Acts 2:1-4). And ever since that historic day, the Holy Spirit has been faithfully carrying on His ministry in the lives of believers.His comforting activities includes : guiding us into truth (Jn. 16:13), assuring us we are God’s children (Rom. 8:16), helping us pray (Rom. 8:26), transforming us into Christ’s image (2 Cor. 3:18), and strengthening us (Eph. 3:16).
    —Dennis De Haan

    Prayer : “Father in Heaven, we thank you for our Comforter. Help us not to grieve Him. We face each day with confidence because of His blessed ministry in our lives.”

    I’ve never felt that bit I want too!

      I too went through such great and unimaginable experience of the filling of Holy Spirit. I was 16 when I was blessed with this rare gift. We used to attend so-called “tarrying meetings” on every Saturday evening from 6.30 to till the time we feel satisfied, may be till 11 PM or ever 12, according to the situation we used be in. Every meeting I had been, tried to imitate others by clapping, singing and praising, but nothing I could feel about the claims by others on this subject. At times I felt much discouraged on my not getting the same, since I felt it as true!
      One fine evening when we (family members only) were on our evening routine worship proceedings as I was singing the hymn, duly closed my eyes and concentrated on Jesus I felt like heavenly brightness surrounded us like, we are not in the tiny small hut under the light of a hurricane, but I felt like sitting in the place where brightness all over with indescribable happiness of the heart and I started singing in joy which lately told by my family members as i was speaking loud “in languages”. I still remember that happiness which I owned for few days can not be challenged by any of the happiness I ever experienced thereafter.
      But, for my bad days, I once again lost in this world with my friends and lust of life in which I lost my spirit-filled state of affairs and my enlisting in Army was an added atmosphere where the devil wanted to establish his domain in my heart, which now again I overtook by the grace of God our Lord through the prayers of many my well-wishers-in-Christ like you all!
      God bless!

          At a time when deep waters surround many of us. Its time for fresh fire. And I need it!. And I want it!

          As I meditate on the testimony of my brother Joe I think back on my walk with the Lord especially in the last year. Everything I learned years ago has practically had to be erased and new ways relearned. I got on the name it and claim it bandwagon. Yes we do need to claim Gods promises, but they don’t come in a new York minute! I’ve learned that it takes constant fervent down in the trench on your face pressing to receive them. Some do come instantly I agree but others sometimes take years or longer. My dream is to be used by God like the disciples of old. My life has been full of blessings and struggles both. I’ve been stubborn and hard headed at times. Hot tempered and down right angry. But through it all Jesus never gave up on me. I seek His unquenchable fire, His victory, His deliverance, I desire to walk in the secret place with God and to be used by God like the disciples and prophets. This world is at the point of passing away. So many people are lost I was one of them. I work with many that laugh at the things of God, I was one of them too. Now my eyes have seen the truth. Time is short. And if the saints of God don’t bring the word of life to the lost who will?. I see many who I want to see in heaven, so it’s my responsibility to tell them how to get there. And the only way to do that is to be full of the fire of the Holy Spirit. Let’s all make a decision to keep knocking on the door of Heaven until that fire falls!. I’ve been given a vision or dream it consisted of the sick healed, hospitals emptied, children healed I believe wigglesworth or sumrall had the same vision. I too have seen it. And I think its sooner to happen then we realize. Maybe I had the dream because I read about it. But in my sleep I have seen it repeatedly. Im not sure how it will take place. But I know for a FACT its about to happen soon. Let our prayer be to be prepared in mind body and soul to receive Gods mighty miracles and fresh fire!

    The power of Holy Spirit is unquenchable, unchallengeable, beyond imagination of human being! YES! Great is such experience which I too went through in my teens but lost in my lusty life style thereafter, but again I am in the main stream! “His Mercy endures for ever”.
    God Bless
