Baptism In The Holy Spirit

When I was young, a pastor locked me in the bathroom to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. After an hour he let me out but I did not speak in tongues. Does this mean I'm not baptized in the Spirit? Has this ever happened to you? How did you become baptized in the Spirit?

22Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

23If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?

He's talking about when there is no interpretation.
---Matthew_frrom_LA on 10/11/07

4) this is 1 Corinthians 14 btw

27If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course, and let one interpret.

28But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church, and let him speak to himself, and to God.

T.S. most tongues spoken today are false and sound like jibberish because it is jibberish. You can do it right now if you wanted.
---Matthew_frrom_LA on 10/11/07

Mima - the Spirit bears witness - so I suppose they have to have the soirit to understand what speaking in tongues is and what it means to the believer.

TS - Have you asked the Lord for the least of His gifts, if you have not recieved tongues - have you recieved any gifts
---Andrea on 10/11/07

All you do is speak and don't think of any intelligible words to say and you can do it to. I challenege you to do it right now. Anyone from the saved to the unsaved can do it because it is a human biological phenomena. Pretty much, it is what a baby does when he is trying to learn how to speak. Since a baby does not know any words, whe he/she speaks, out comes strange words when they try. Real tongues involves the Holy SPirit taking over one's mouth and speaking in an actual language.
---Matthew_frrom_LA on 10/11/07

Mrs Morgan:
These are all gifts of the Spirit. Tongues is at the bottom of the list. Modern blathering in unintelligible jibber and foaming at the mouth is not tongues. "God is not the Spirit of Confusion."

This is why Paul said there must be an interpretor in Church if tongues is spoken.
---Matthew_frrom_LA on 10/11/07

1 Corinthians 14:5
I would that ye all spake with tongues but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.

Paul gives the reason why tongues in Chruch must have someone with gift of interpretation.
---Matthew_frrom_LA on 10/11/07

Mrs Morgan:
These are all gifts of the Spirit. Tongues is at the bottom of the list. Modern blathering in unintelligible jibber and foaming at the mouth is not tongues. "God is not the Spirit of Confusion."

1Cor12:28 "God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, AFTER THAT: miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of TONGUES"

6This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

7For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. (ALL BEARING WITNESS OF THE SAME THING, OF ONE MIND AND ONE ACCORD)

8And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: AND THESE THREE AGREE AS ONE.
---kathr4453 on 4/17/07

Susan, The Holy Spirit works with a person according to their HEART, He only works with TRUTH, many OSAS believers haven't hid this in their heart:(Psalm 119:11)/(John 8:51)(John 12:48)/(John 15:6)/(John 17:17)/(Gal. 5:16)/(James 1:22)/(James 2:17)/(Rom.6:16)/(1 John 3:3,5-10),because they feel it isn't "required", this produces little to no growth in God's Grace & Knowledge to their own detriment(2 Peter 3:16-18),reason why Jesus said only a FEW will enter into His Kingdom(Matt.7:21).God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 4/17/07

Here it is the Holy Ghost is God also.
1 John 5:7 (King James Version) For there are THREE that bear record IN HEAVEN, THE FATHER, THE WORD, and THE HOLY GHOST: and these THREE ARE ONE. Kathryn you better read scripture before make assumptions.

---doug7835 on 4/17/07

This is where it starts to flip.

Mrs. Morgan: The Spirit is actually the one who puts to death our old nature at the same time. Those who suffer with Him will be Glorified together with Him. These scriptures are for those who know they are saved. OSAS. To apply them to only a sinfree existence missed the whole point. As we continue, those who are born again, we find we overcome, not only the world, but false doctrine as well."
---Susan on 4/17/07

I think you are referring to what some call the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. No scripture to back that up. Jesus gave "gifts" to HIS Body,but it's "Christ in you" that is working out of you what He is working in you. Christians are indwelt at the time they are Born Again with Father Son and Holy Spirit. The Lord our God is ONE.
---Susan on 4/17/07

Flip/floppy, again.

Mrs. Morgan: You quote Philippians and Revelations.."they overcame through the Blood of the Lamb...yet you don't believe it yourself...if you did, you would believe OSAS. Who do you think were the overcomers? Do you think that is past tense? Or could that possibly be ALL of God's saints, He purchased with His Precious, Blood.

Susan and Frank. I absolutely believe in the Holy Spirit. The Lord our God is ONE, Father Son and Holy Spirit. We worship God, through His Son in the Power of the Holy Spirit. Many have it the opposite. They "worship" the Holy Spirit, as does Benny Hinn. The Holy Spirit does not speak of Himself but Glorifies God. The Three are one, and do not work separately from one another. They are of ONE Mind and ONE accord. Please know the difference. This is what scripture teaches. NEXT
---kathr4453 on 4/17/07

John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, ****he shall testify of me****:

You see Frank and Susan, The Holy Spirit Testifies of Jesus Christ , not Himself.
---kathr4453 on 4/17/07

When John the Baptist baptized Jesus, a dove descended upon Jesus. God said, "This is my Son in whom I'm well pleased. John the Baptist said, "Behold the Lamb of God which takes away the sin of the world". THIS is what the Holy Spirit TESTIFIES TO.

Anything contrary to scripture is a counterfeit spirit. The Holy Spirit does not work contrary to the Word of God. Extra Biblical babel is not the Holy Spirit.

Kathr, you have said some wretched things to your non-friends.

"Yes, the servant is the Type of Holy Spirit. I do also believe as the Body of Christ the Holy Spirit indwells us,and we not only are the Bride, but as the Body of Christ, His servant as well, calling those through the preaching of the Gospel. Paul& Peter refer to themselves many times as the servant of Jesus Christ. They are also In Christ, The Church."
---Susan on 4/16/07

Dear kathr4453, Thanks for the compliment, It's very important that ALL of God's people choose their words wisely, this is what I have learned, emotions can really make a mess of things. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 4/16/07

" Kathr, I know is a good person, but she has allowed her spirit to be troubled very much, that now when she answers she is not interested in answering a question, or to debate, for God's glory, she has another agenda. Her own spiritual life has changed because I see the difference everyday. I understand, but we should do everything with patience, compassion, respect, and love, for the glory of God.

Chipper is one of many...
Here's Kathr as Larry defending herself....

I have also come to another conclusion. Calvinists have a total disrespect for women. They truly believe they are to be deaf, dumb and blind. Now I see why John T and those who are his side kicks have gone after kathr for her insight on Calvinism.
It's one thing to expose a doctrine, as she has done. "You shall have "NO OTHER GODS" before me". That law will never pass away!

Mrs. Morgan: I want to commend you for your answer to Susan. You are a perfect example of a Godly woman on line not feeding into lies. You know I love you dearly, and whether you believe in OSAS or not is not an issue. What is important is you love the Lord, and your behavior proves you are a genuine Christian. One thing I can say about Mrs. Morgan, Matthew and many others not enough room to name,is that even though we may disagree on issues,we never play games, separate friendships or accuse on another!
---kathr4453 on 4/16/07

No, kathr, thats not what i'm saying
---mark on 4/16/07

I have to hand it over to you, you had this defined last fall. I can pull it up. To paraphrase, the discussion was moving from Calvinism to OSAS. Calvin was a goat, but she said I believe in OSAS. Then over the months, it became fluid, and she no longer believed in OSAS. Then OSAS/eternal security needed wiping off the face of the earth - and we're off and running to the "Holy Spirit as a deity".
Last fall, you said, Kathr - your views - they are-a-changin', day by day. True.

"Since Kathr says, those who consider the Holy Spirit a diety are cultish, what say you, Mrs. Morgan?Kathr does not believe the Holy Spirit equal..."

Dear Susan, All I can say is, I can't speak for kathr & that God knows her heart....If you are asking [me] about the Person of the Holy Spirit, He is just as much as God as God the Father, and God the Son(the Holy Trinity), They are EQUAL/One in terms of power/authority/mind/heart/will. God Bless!

Susan, I have learned in my walk with Jesus , that ALL Christians must GROW in God's Grace and Knowledge, which requires a humble/obedient/pure heart(2 Peter 3:18). God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 4/16/07

Sister Susan, I have just answered Kathr on another blog and said the same thing to her. I believe sister Morgan and her are very good friends and believe in the same things. They speak of cults of others but their own understanding of God is so wrong. The Holy Spirit not equal with the Father or the Son, is one of the reasons they have everything so corrupted. They don't even know who God is. I believe they need to start from the beginning. They answer alot about works, yet don't even know who God is.
---frank on 4/16/07

B. Susan: thank you for speaking out on behalf of God. We need more people to do the same. It gets tiring to see so many making a mockery of God, and His word. More people should come forward with the truth. This place is getting taking over by false teachings.

Kathr, just read on the other blog that you do not believe the Holy Spirit is equal to the Father or the Son. I also realize you used my name to get your evens, which your do very frequently. We all have our eye on you.
The fact that you do not give the Holy Spirit the same measure as the Father or the Son really helps me understand why your views are askew and off.
---Susan on 4/15/07

Since Kathr says, those who consider the Holy Spirit a diety are cultish, what say you, Mrs. Morgan?
Kathr does not believe the Holy Spirit equal in terms of the triune aspect or Holy Trinity of God, Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
---Susan on 4/15/07

What do you think of this Mrs. Morgan?

You are always talking about the Holy Ghost, putting more emphasis there than Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit does not draw attention to Himself, but actually points to Jesus. Do you understand that? Many charismatics have made the Holy Spirit a diety. This is cultish! BEWARE!
This will be the spirit of anti-christ coming with great signs and wonders!
---Susan on 4/16/07

You by all means do not have to speak in tongues following receiving the Holy Spirit. Tongues is a gift like evangelism, hospitality or giving. You must however bear fruit such as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, self-control.

One last question, Jack. As brilliant and scholarly as you are about each and every subject; computer saavy, why don't use these abilities and write a book or two?

Think about it Herb. I am not talking about a Christian conversion experience for those people but rather one to the particular false religion. The point is, if they experience some sort of conversion at the spiritual level - to a non Christian faith - then should we discount Christian conversion as being valid. And because so many false religions practice baptism should we discredit Christian baptism as being invalid as well?

Baptism: ordinance performed to cleanse our sins. The Holy Ghost helps us if we are worthy of him. The gift of the Holy Ghost is given by laying on of hands by those holding authority and priesthood of God. Acts 8:16-18. The Holy Ghost cannot dwell in unholy temples or bodies. He is the spirit of truth and comforter. We live righteously to have him as a constant companion. You cannot break God's laws and expect him to be with you. Example, drunk or high, angry, abuse your family, lie, cheat, etc.
