OUR COMFORTER

AS YOU SPEAK A GREAT DEAL ON THE HOLY SPIRIT, IT BRINGS TO MIND A QUESTION I HAVE HAD FOR MANY YEARS AND NOT BEEN GIVEN AN ANSWER.  SOME 50 YEARS AGO, WHILE ATTENDING A PENACOSTAL CHURCH THAT I LOVED AND  WE HAD A PRECIOUS PASTOR WHO IS NOW WITH OUR LORD;  I WAS IN A PRAYER LINE, AS AT THAT TIME I WAS STILL A SMOKER AND DID NOT WANT TO BE.  AS I APPROACHED THE PULPIT OUR PASTOR REACHED OUT HIS HAND TOWARD ME.  NEXT, I CAME TO ON THE FLOOR AND SPEAKING IN TOUNGES.  ONLY BY THE GRACE OF GOD I WAS NOT HARMED SINCE I LANDED ON A CONCRET FLOOR AND I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER FALLING.  ANYHOW, I WAS TOLD THAT I HAD BEEN "SLAIN IN THE SPIRIT."  HAVE YOU HEARD OF THIS?  I HAVE NOT SPOKEN IN TONGUES SINCE THAT DAY. I AM STILL PRAYING FOR THE BAPTISUM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.  I FEEL IN MY HEART THAT HE IS WITH ME BECAUSE OF THE LOVE AND JOY I HAVE THROUGH NO MATTER WHAT BUT I DO NOT SPEAK IN TONGUES.  DO WE ALWAYS?  THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR MANY BLESSINGS I RECEIVE FROM WHAT OUR LORD TEACHES YOU.  BELLA

    Hi Bella! Yes, we are familiar with being slain in the spirit, though it has not occurred with either of us. We heard someone say that some of us are just meant to stand, perhaps to catch the others ;-). As far as I know, you do not lose the ability to speak in tongues, so I pray that God leads to what is needed to be able to open that up in your life again!
