Slain in the Spirit – part 1

The phrases “slain in the Spirit,” “falling under the power,” or “resting in the Spirit” are not found in the Bible. They are used, however, to describe the experience of falling to the floor under the power of the Holy Spirit. Although being slain in the Spirit seems to be a distinguishing characteristic of some recent revivals and evangelistic ministries, there are recorded accounts of people falling under the power of God or being slain in the Spirit in 18th and 19th century revivals. Some of the earlier recorded prostration experiences were related to sinners falling under conviction for their sins. More frequently in the modern Pentecostal/Charismatic revival, believers who are slain in the Spirit experience an extended, intense time of inner work of the Spirit tailored to the specific nature or needs of the individual.

For the bible say this word was “God”. By this word, everything was made, created brought into existence. We know that this word is Jesus because – the word became flesh and dwelled among us. So, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit all have a creative imprint on our world. John 1:10; Col. 1:16, 17; Heb. 1:2; Gen. 1:2 Don’t believe in evolution… you were fearfully and wonderfully made by a loving creative God.

Emefa is the middle name of my oldest daughter. This is an African name given to a girl. It is a name that is quite popular among the Ewe, Mina people of Togo and Ghana. The meaning of the name is “peace within” and speaks of the prince of peace coming to live in our heart. The only true and lasting peace to be found in this world is found in Jesus Christ. Even before Jesus was born, it was prophesied that he would bring peace (Isa. 9:6; Ps. 72:7). At Jesus’ birth the heavenly host announced that he would bring peace to earth (Luke 4:18). Throughout Jesus’ ministry he brought peace to others. 1. He interpreted his preaching as a mission of peace (Luke 4:18). 2. He taught his disciples that they could know peace in a world of tribulation (John 16:33). 3. He instructed his disciples to spread peace (Luke 10:5). 4. In times of despair, he brought peace to his disciples (John 14:1 – 2). 5. He promised his disciples that the Holy Spirit would …
