I need to make an apology to Jlay and Rick. I was so sure I could never be made a mug of
Danny, no need to apologize to me. and, it's not about being made a mug of. It's about helping each other in these situations.
But I have been questioning lots of things that have been 'happening' to me.
That's because you earnestly prayed for discernment. God is showing you.
I need to be clear: I know the holy spirit dwells in me. I know this and feel very much that God is with me and helping guide me.
Praise God!!!! He will NEVER leave you nor forsake you!!!!
The revival? My goodness. I'm questioning it all now. I have to be honest with you all. I went down in front of the pastor. I thought it had felt like I fell onto the most comfortable bed in the land. I am seriously beginning to realise now that I wanted to go down.
Danny, don't get discouraged over this. It's clear God used this to bring you closer to Him.
, but even while I was there I knew that something was wrong. But I put it out of my mind and remained positive about the whole thing.
that was the Holy Spirit speaking to you. I've had many similar situations where the HS was telling me something was wrong. Now that you know, it's very real when God speaks to us through the HS.
What the heck was that enormous rush I was feeling?
It could have been you being emotionally caught up in the "experience" of it all. Ask God to show you.
I saw Bob the alcoholic transformed from death's door to beaming with life.
Bob could have been caught up in the experience himself. Or, sometimes these pastors have "plants". People that work with them to claim healings that in turn get the crowd more emotional. Which in turn brings in more money.
I witnessed a lady who had been healed of arthritis.
The real proof would be to see if the lady is "still" healed after her emotions of the experience have died down. Or, maybe she didn't really have arthritis.
I'd like to say that I am wholeheartedly sorry for being so ****-sure that I couldn't be duped. I thought I'd seen it all. I thought I'd experienced 'real' adrenalin-induced highs. And I have! But, if that rush I had was not the spirit then what the heck was it? I'm still inclined to believe that the spirit was stirring inside of me. But I'm not so sure that the holy spirit was happy with what was going on.
Danny, it can happen to any of us. Keep in the word, and continually pray. God will guide you.
Please understand that I'm still very much elated in my walk with God. I just thank you all for your support and guidence, and especially the guidence of the Lord in my life. I know He has helped guide me to the truth in this.
Praise God! This is how God moves in a believer's life when he/she honestly seeks discernment through prayer!!!!!!
God Bless you, Danny. This is very encouraging to me and others. It shows that God does answer prayers!
