Nowhere in the bible is the phrase slain in the Spirit. anything with the word slain in it is to do with someone been murdered by(sword), hunger,Christ,or beasts. Now do some investigative study and read for yourselves :)
---Carla5754 on 10/14/07

Ryan_Z, they were slain in their bodies. They didn't get back up. Instead they were carried out dead. I'm still here, so I didn't experience what they did, nor did anyone else who is here to tell of it.

In the Garden of Gethesemane, those who fell backward were those who heard Jesus say, "I am He." That is not a bad thing, really it isn't.
---Linda on 10/11/07

Only people I read about that were slain in the spirit were Annanias and Saphira, Lord knows I don't want that experience.
---Ryan_Z on 10/11/07

I believe Andrea exactly right in her last post on this question.
---Mima on 10/11/07

The fact is if you go forward for prayer and the power of the Lord falls and you end up on your back - you will not worry about whom it is from bc when you approach your Heavenly Father for something He does not send you a demon. If your yielding to the Holy Spirit you'll respond as the Spirit leads.
---Andrea on 10/10/07

Slain in the Spirit, 75 points. I can believe it. Cause alot of rift. Here is what I found. Then fell she down straightway at His feet, and yielded up the ghost. When the vision ended, Daniel was alone and felt weak. Dan. 10-8. [omnipotence] Majestic figure, Note description of Christ] given in Revelation, 1:13-15. Preincarnate appearance of Christ. Exodus 24: 9-11 or 3: 3-18-23 with 34:3-9. He laid not His hand means they were not slain, even though they saw the God of Israel.>>>Praise God I got it.++

Tom, if you would like that full testimony, it is available on the web. If you are interested in it, contact me through the pen pal section. My id is linda3843. I also have an awesome healing testimony on the same site. I was healed of the chickenpox in three days from the word, "I have seen your tears, I have heard your cries, surely I will heal you and on the third day ye shall go into the house of the Lord."
---Linda on 10/6/07

I woke up on Thursday morning with the pox and walked into church Sunday morning manifesting "by His stripes I am healed". And I wasn't some 40-year veteran in the faith. I had just been born again three months prior. God is good.
---Linda on 10/6/07

Sorry, the barking like a dog was either from another one similar to yours or another one you wrote on another blog. Most people attribute the barking like a dog to the Holy Laughter Movement called the Toronto Blessing which was no blessing at all in my opinion. You would be suprised to find that I don't agree with the Pentecostal churches on a lot of things but I don't judge them either.
---Michelle on 10/6/07

I believe in certain things that Pentecostals do meaning I believe they are Biblical but that doesn't mean I seek after them or run up to the alter every Sunday seeking to fall on the floor. I think you have met too many like that.
---MichelleS on 10/6/07

My church just hosted an event called Girlfriends where 1,000 women gathered to have a dinner theatre. The story was the modern day story of Ruth and at the end the head of girlfriends- our pastor's wife gave an alter call, not talking anything about speaking in tongues or any of that nature. I watched many get saved.
---Michelle on 10/6/07

Does sound like the kind of church you are describing in most of your post? I think my church is a home to me and when I work there I feel like I am truly doing the work of Jesus. I see new people come all the time and I see them changed by the power of God. My church is just one of many out there that are actually doing what they preach and reaching the lost for Jesus
---MichelleS on 10/6/07

I hear, trust, and obey God all the time. My job is just one big act of trust and obedience. It's not for the fainthearted christian.
I think I need to work on that issue as much as any other Christian. We all need to work on listening to God because we all talk to much. Very few of us actually listen to him. I know my God is with me though because what his word says. Now that is something I can stand on.
---MichelleS on 10/6/07

I did ask Father why He chose to manifest Himself that way to me and He spoke seven words: You fell down but I got up. That sounded so much like the death, burial, and resurrection that I didn't argue with it.
---Linda on 10/5/07

When I read that I got the Holy Ghost chills and there are no bible references for them either. Wow -my Pastor tells the same kind of story - he wasn't looking but God put him down for two hours 30 yesr ago and he said he's been changed since that day.
---Tom on 10/6/07

Michelle: Like you, I'm yet a work in progress. Thank God, He's not thru with us yet! :)

I didn't say you must bark like a dog, etc. Where'd that come from? :) I sincerely apologize for offending you. Please forgive me!

"We know" God is never wrong. When He speaks from Scripture, "we Christians" need to hear, trust & obey Him.

I was a member of a non-denominational (neo-pentecostal) church. They vexed my spirit, so I left...

---Leon on 10/5/07

Oh yes and you have so much Christian maturity Leon to claim that since I am pentecostal that I must bark like a dog, bite things, and run around the sanctuary like a crazy person. I may be thin-skinned but that tends to happen when you teach 22 fourth graders and one of them brings two guns to school plus a knife. Forgive me for reading too much into your post, I was angry at the time.

I do think that you unfairly judged me and lumped me, Andrea and whoever else believes like us with a group of cultic wacos when you don't even no me personally. I repented, maybe you should too. Maybe you should get to know me personally and visit a church like mine before you claim that we do what you say we do. Last time I checked no one was hanging from the ceiling either.
---MichelleS on 10/5/07

Michelle MMR, what happened to your mother is very similar to what happened to me. I was one of those "I don't believe in all that Holy Ghost hype" and believed that men pushed people to the floor, therefore, I wasn't seeking any such experience. Then one evening I ended up flat on my back on the floor and no man ever touched me. However, I don't boast so much in the experience but in the fruit in my life when I got up.
---Linda on 10/5/07

I went into work that night as usual and when I walked in the door, one of my co-workers asked, "What happened to you?" See, my countenance had changed because I was changed. The woman who got up off the floor that night was not the one who went down. I shared Christ with my co-worker and she was born again. The first person I ever shared Christ came to Him. How is that for fruit?
---Linda on 10/5/07

The same happened the next day when I went to college. People were drawn to the Christ in me and I had no shortage of a crowd to share with. Years later, I did ask Father why He chose to manifest Himself that way to me and He spoke seven words: You fell down but I got up. That sounded so much like the death, burial, and resurrection that I didn't argue with it.
---Linda on 10/5/07

Though that experience was wonderful, months later Father asked me if I was willing to trade the experience for a walk in truth by faith. After about a week or two, I said yes. He loves us and deals with us personally where we are. I love that about Him. Michelle, a word of wisdom:
A man with an experience in God is never at the mercy of a man with an argument. It is like sitting down to a seven course meal, thoroughly partaking of it, and then having someone tell you that you didn't eat.
---Linda on 10/5/07

Michelle: Whoa!!! I didn't insinuate you weren't saved. You angrily read that into my comments.

"You are" thin skinned, have a very unChrist-like short fuse & an obvious zero tolerance for biblical truth. To be "all that" you claim you are does certainly cause me to question your Christian maturity.

It has been my experience, people who are lightning quick to call others rude epitomize, perfectly fit the very pattern of rudeness. Repent!!!
---Leon on 10/5/07

Michelle: Apparently Andrea has bailed on me. Perhaps you can answer my questions.

If a person is "slain" in the spirit, are they really dead? Do they go to heaven? Do they have any memory of the time while slain? Do they see a white light? Are they conscious while "slain" or are they just paralyzed?
---jerry6593 on 10/5/07

When a Piano tuner tunes in a piano he uses an instrument to be able to get the right note. He cannot fine tune the piano without it, but he can try his best. Now if you are going to fine tune Spirits you need to be familiar with an instrument called The Word of God and if there is no reference found there You can guarantee that YOU'VE tuned into the wrong SPIRIT and out of tune(line with the Written word of God) if you disregard the truth satan will find work for idle hands.

See, for that seducing spirit theory of yours to work, I would have to be addicted to this falling over like a drug and just going to church because I want the feeling of it. That would be a lie since I'm not at church for the feeling. In fact, I haven't been slain in the Spirit in months and I really don't hunger or search after it.
---MichelleS on 10/4/07

Another thing Carla, I have seen the people you are thinking about who are seeking the feeling and not the giver of Life. I love and adore the Lord with all my heart. I would never have the audacity to seek the Lord because I simply want a good feeling from him. I come before the Lord in prayer because I want to be with him and listen to him and talk to him about how wonderful he is.
---MichelleS on 10/4/07

The Lord saved me, healed my heart, delivered me and set me free from a lot of bondage. He has forgiven me and written my name in the Lamb's book of life. Let me tell you when I talk about God to strangers I don't talk about being slain in the Spirit- I talk about how good he is and what he is done for my family and me.
I was just simply trying to start a conversation blog. Right now, all I want is a logical argument from y'all to prove your point but you can't do it.
---MichelleS on 10/4/07

I have news for all of you. Reading the bible from cover to cover, how much do you really know after all that reading? How much of it got into your spirit? I probably will never read the bible cover to cover, Unless God tells me to. He got me late in life and there probably will not be enough time for me to do that. But what I study I really do get it. In my spirit that is. I do not believe in making fun of other's religions.

Not only that Carla but many scriptures have been posted to these blogs over and over again to prove our points but it looks like you haven't read them or you don't care. I don't have to post the scripture, others have done it for me.
Again- my point- seducing spirits would not enter my body, cause me to pray for someone else in the name of Jesus, glorify Jesus in any way, read the Word of God which all happens every day to me including the times when I have been slain in the Spirit.
---Michelle on 10/4/07

Seducing spirits, Carla, want you to believe that something that is of the devil is of God by making it look good to our flesh. Here's the thing, my flesh doesn't get tingled when I lift my hands in prayer or when I read the Bible or slain in the Spirit
---Michelle on 10/4/07

Leon, you are so rude!!! How dare you call yourself a christian! What Christian would insuate that I am not saved because I have certain charasmatic beliefs.
Contrary to popular belief, I have never rolled on the floor, barked like a dog or bit anyone!
Yes, I have read the Bible from cover to cover several times. I have been a born again Christian since I was eight and Pentecostal since I was 25. I was raised in a Prebyterian church and a baptist school. Does than answer your question?
---Michelle on 10/4/07

I agree with Michelle. I have never been slain in the Spirit but I have felt the power of God's anointing during prayer and worship. It's powerful and can take your breath away. I would never question that it can knock someone over. Jesus proclaiming "I am he" was enough to knock people back. (John 18:6)
---Matthew_from_LA on 10/4/07

Another Michelle answered you initially, Carla. I'm MMR.
Slain in the Spirit is a phrase and not a Scripture. TV has given us a charismatic zoo and hyped up services. Rather than admitting spiritual ignorance, hyped up services have become the norm. Starving sheep leave feeling they were served up a few crumbs. Services preached without the Holy Spirit will be hype. Shouting is not the 'anointing', touch of God.
Stirring people up in their emotions will give you fat head but not a fat heart.
---Michelle on 10/4/07

Scripture says, Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.
Zech 4:6
Most people don't have enough patience to wait on the Lord. They would rather try some religious mumbo jumbo, hype and have a fleshy service. God doesn't have an opportunity to move.
God's Holy Spirit destroys the yokes. Isaiah 10:27

Michelle. MMR
---Michelle on 10/4/07

The presence of God is tangible. When someone has a disease and you see them healed by the Power of God, there will be an actual transferring of the presence, the anointing of God. The presence of God comes for a purpose. To set the captives free.
If the preacher and people push their purpose, the Holy Spirit departs. Nothing happens.
But when the Holy Spirit arrives, He can do in two minutes what a church can't do in two years.

---Michelle on 10/4/07

The Word of God is the Will of God for your life. When the Holy Spirit is present in a service, and a spirit of death and cancer is adjured by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of the Living God, to come out....a body may begin to fall to the ground. When the power of God hits someone who is quiet and reserved, they may begin to cry, Thank you, Lord....Thank you, Lord. When God's power enters a hospital room, a patient may shaken out of their bed - healed by the power of the Holy Spirit.

The anointing, the Power of God gets the job done.
Adam was originally clothed in the Shekina Glory of God. When Adam sinned, he lost his clothes and found out that he was naked.

God takes the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. 1 Cor 1:27
God chooses the weak things to confound the mighty. God uses things that are that no flesh should glory in His presence. 1 Cor 1:27

---Michelle on 10/4/07

The presence of God is felt. It can be a shocking experience. The presence of God is not 'falling under the power', but the people may fall as a result of the presence of God.
God's Holy Spirit is God, not an atmosphere. But He can move like the wind, you can't see Him, but you can see the results after the Holy Spirit has been there. People get saved, healed, and delivered.

---Michelle on 10/4/07

No flesh can stand before the LORD. If any here will pray through and be in the LORDS full presence, you will not be able to move. His power and glory will make you a very humble saint.
---duane on 10/4/07

I'm not going to fight you with this subject michelle reading your blog you claim there is no biblical scripture to to prove this behavior wrong. But you may find that the word talks about familiar spirits, Seducing spirits, spirits that occupy both the night and day, in high and Low places. But the one Spirit you THINK is using people''to do as he pleases '' PROVIDE scripture to back that up.

Ah, many Michelles on here. I didn't say anything about rolling up and down the aisles with the congregants, back and forth. Now, my mother used to go look in the AoG church windows on Saturday nights and watch with her friends. She said that would roll together, back and forth, like the ocean waves. Holy rollers.
About a year ago, I took my mother to a church that believes in the gifts. She went forward for prayer. My mother was very skeptical as many here are. Guess what...

---Michelle on 10/4/07

She ended up on the floor and I watched the most glorious event happen right before my eyes. My mother was having heart trouble. I'm not going to tell you what we witnessed because you'll mock what the Holy Spirit did for my mother. My mother has been a completely different person since then. Her countenance is shiny. When you look at mom's face, you see Jesus Christ living big in her. It's awesome. The Holy Spirit is more beautiful than words can describe.

Michelle. MMR
---Michelle on 10/4/07

For a long while, I was cautious about sharing anything about the Holy Spirit so as not to offend all of you who don't believe in the Holy Spirit baptism and the gifts. I am not ashamed of the Holy Spirit.
You don't need the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to make it into heaven. But why wouldn't you want some fresh manna and new oil while you live on earth? Some of you need an oil change, your motors are starting to smoke like a mosquito sprayer.

Michelle & Andrea: Apart from your laying on the floor worshiping the Lord & perhaps engaging in other pentecostal (word of faith) related experiential worship exercises, e.g., running around the church, holy laughter, ecstatic babble, rolling on the floor & biting furniture, etc., have either of you ever read the Bible from cover-to-cover? Sounds like you're so steeped in cultural churchianity that you really haven't comprehended biblical Christianity.
---Leon on 10/4/07

Andrea: As usual, rather than answering a direct question, you go on the personal attack. Just try to answer without all the extraneous stuff, please.

If a person is "slain" in the spirit, are they really dead? Do they go to heaven? Do they have any memory of the time while slain? Do they see a white light? Are they conscious while "slain" or are they just paralyzed?

Otherwise, I'll just have to conclude that steven-rem is right, it's only demonic possession.
---jerry6593 on 10/4/07

I know the holy Spirit operates in people.

I also know demonic and evil spirits also operate in people. I know this from my own personal experience and because it is written in the Bible.

I wonder why some people refuse to believe there are many different spirits in the world and only one is of, and also from God. The Holy Spirit.

I wonder why some people refuse to test the spirits to see if they are indeed of God. 1 John 4:1-6.
---Rob on 10/4/07

1)Leon - I use the term manisfestation bc it is confusing to keep using 'gifts'. the gift is the Holy Spirit, the evidence of the gift is tongues its outgrowth is power (to evangelize, teach etc).
At salvation we recieve the HS - (jesus breathed on the disciples). At Pentecost they recieved the infilling or gift of the HS with the evidence (tongues) and went on to evangelize( recall denying Christ earlier).
---Andrea on 10/3/07

2)There are NO scriptures to say the gifts have ceased and there are millions of testimonies to the contrary.
I encourage you (strongly) to earnestly seek the 'infilling' of the HS for power. Please research it - your an adult - no one is going to throw you on the floor! I have been filled for 20 yrs and have never been 'slain' I've seen hundreds. Its really no big deal unless God wants to do something and needs you to not resist.

4)"If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" (Luke 11:13).....You get the HS automatically at salvation - why is Jesus telling you to 'ask' for a gift.
I promise you it will change your walk with the Lord forever. This is His gift to the church-it is not a doctrine or a denomination - it is a gift. Take it.

layhands - baptism HS - great teaching 100's scriptures
---Andrea on 10/3/07

So far Leon, you haven't proved to me that it's not Biblical. Not one verse have I seen that says thou shall no lay out on the floor and worship God. The only thing you and others who are afaid of the supernatural say to us "satanic" Pentecostals is that we are all hyped up on emotions and supposedly filled with demons. Please, you have no logical argument to say you are right and we are wrong. You can't prove yourself Biblically and that's the bottom line.
---Michelle on 10/3/07

Part 2- I personally think you Leon and all others like you who deny the supernatural are afraid like I was when I was anti-Pentecostal and I looked down on all those crazy people. You are afraid of what would happen if the Holy Spirit got ahold of your body and did with it what he pleased. That's my opinion and last time I checked, I still had a right to that.

Jana, thank you but it WAS the Holy Spirit that spoke to me that day--I know that for sure. I received soooo much healing that day and give all the glory to God. :) Oh, and no, I don't "speak funny" as you call it--never have spoken in tongues.
---Mary on 10/3/07

I have never been slain in the SPirit, but at the same time I felt the power of the Holy Spirit when he overcomes you during worhsip and prayer. I will never question whether the Holy Spirit does this because I know how strong the anoiting of the HS can be. As for "holy laughter" that really bothers me. I don't understand why the Holy Spirit would laugh in a person. I know this though, "barking" is not of God, it's a demon.
---Matthew_from_LA on 10/3/07

Andrea: I believe the Bible (Genesis thru Revelation) -- nothing more or less. Do you? Also, please show me, in the Bible, what you mean by "manisfestation of the Holy Spirit" & what does the gifts of the Holy Spirit have to do with being so called "slain in the spirit"? Thank you. :)
---Leon on 10/3/07

Denying the gifts of the Holy Spirit does not make them go away, it just means you won't be recieving any packages for awhile. But to attribute the manifestations of the Holy Spirit to demons is just stupid.

Thats being far far too kind. Millions of people testify to this for a hundred years. It has nothing to do with your doctrine.
If your ever in a Pentecostal meeting and need a powerful prayer - you tell the pastor you do NOT want to be slain in the spirit bc he'll enjoy a good laugh.

Michelle & Andrea: The overall problem is you & others here try to rationalize an activity that's not found in or supported by Scripture. Many say "it is" because they desperately want to justify their participation in it with other like minded persons. But, if God really isn't in it, then God really isn't in it! That's the bottomline. No matter how you try to square peg Scripture, being "slain in the spirit" just won't fit the normative biblical pattern for Christians.

This subject could hypothetically continue for ever [and probably will til "Shiloh comes"], so I'll just say others & myself experienced & saw this phenomenon of The Holy Spirits power no matter what others say or believe know it's true!

---patre3543 on 10/2/07

In most instances yes, you would be correct, but not in this. If some over eager young preacher is pushing people down on the only thing that is happening is the person is giving praise to God for the peace, joy, love, power and rest they feel. Tell me how this is playing with fire. I don't see it. In reality a human is knocking them down but again, does Satan want them to get up and glorify God? Think!
---Michelle on 10/2/07

"I frankly don't see how it hurts anything anyway even if God doesn't do it."

Michelle: That's a very dangerous philosophy (mind set). You're obviously choosing to play with fire -- a helluva thing!

Darlene_1: Yes, we should "willingly" fall down & prostrate ourselves before the Lord in genuine praise & worship. Though He can, God doesn't force His will upon us. Rather, He give us the freedom of choice.

Trey,you are very welcome. I have been saved since age eleven and have only fallen out under the power 3 or 4 times. Many years ago a Ladies group had laid hands on a woman to pray for healing,Mom moved behind her and laid her hand on her shoulder,the anointing was strong and she was knocked backward and down by the power,that surprised all of us. There is a lot of fear about yielding to the Spirit of God/HG but all it boils down to is complete trust in God.

It isn't the blog topic, and I certainly didn't mention it, and I was replying to whether there was any biblical references to 'people being slain in the spirit' (falling under the power), which has nothing to do with 'incoherent babbling' (I assume you are talking about 'speaking in tongues'?)

jerry - I watched the Phillies win their division and a whole city go crazy - if you know what Christ did for you - why aren't you emotional?

When you dwell in His had better be emotional bc if its not - your already dead.
