Is Being “Slain in the Spirit” a Move of God’s Spirit?

Let us ask ourselves discerningly, the truth of what we see…for what Kingdom purpose is this:

1) Lord, is this of You?

2) Lord, if it is of You, is this for me? God may be demonstrating a false prophetic act and we should not join in.

3) John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Truth ale?theia Greek Strong’s 225 meaning not concealing, not hidden

2 Corinthians 4:2 – But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 – For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

The Lord speaks to us in various ways. According to the New Testament Hebrews 1:1-3, God in times past spoke to man through His prophets, and He still speaks to mankind through His prophets, but what is spoken by His prophets of today, in this very moment, “Rhema”, is validated by His thoughts in written word, His truth, “Logos”. His Logos is Jesus (John 1:1) and truth (John 17:17).

Hebrews 1:1-3 – God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

John 1:14 – And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 17:17 Sanctify (Greek Strong’s 37 – hagiazo meaning set them apart for purification and holiness) them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Question: Slain in the spirit.Is that found in the Holy Bible?
: No. Biblically, anything “slain” physically dies, and God will not allow any man or spirit being to kill His spirit in us. Again, God will not allow anyone or anything to kill His spirit in us.

Slain – sphazo Greek Strong’s 4969 means to butcher (especially an animal for food or in sacrifice) or (genitive) to slaughter, or (special) to maim (violently):- kill, slay, wound.

Is Being “Slain in the Spirit” a Move of Gods Spirit?
Spirit nephesh/naphash-Hebrew Strong’s 5314/5315means breath or spirit. (Job 1:12; Job 2:5-6)

Question: Will God put us to sleep, or cause us to sleep?
Answer: Yes. When He wants to speak to us, but we are too busy to listen, God will speak to us through visions and dreams, our subconscious, but God is a God of purpose
(His unyielding will for the Kingdom): To be put asleep by God is Scriptural because everything God does is for, or has His purpose:

Genesis 2:20-22 Adam was put to sleep… God produced a help meet, he brought the woman to Adam

Genesis 15 (entirety), specifically verses 12-16 God spoke to Abram in a vision, God allowed Abram to fall into a deep sleep, and God spoke to Abram concerning the 400-year captivity of the nation.

Genesis 28:10-28 Jacob, the deceiver went to sleep…God spoke to Jacob in that place, which Jacob called Bethel, meaning House of God.

1 Thessalonians 5:4-10 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

. Sleep (1 Thessalonians 5:4-10) Greek Strong’s 2518 Kathheudo (pronounced Kath-you- doe) meaning to lie down to rest, to fall asleep

Question: Is there a “putting to sleep” by the enemy?
Answer: Yes
, but this “sleep” is more spiritually and physiologically causing those who succumb to be lethargic and lulled into passivity, and of that we must be careful and aware:

. Sleep (1 Corinthians 11:30) Greek Strong’s 2837 Koimao (pronounced Coy-ma-oh) meaning outstretched without fulfilling what you should be doing in the place of your assignment. It means to slumber, to be passive, to diminish or be dead.
Sleep (Acts 20:7-12) Greek Strong’s 5258 Hypnos (pronounced Hoop-noz) meaning subsilience or an artificially induced trance state resembling sleep, characterized by heightened susceptibility to suggestion.

Conclusion: For this video, I discern these men were either Koimao or Hypnos, for I cannot discern a Kingdom of God purpose demonstrated by this behavior. Did God speak something to them while they were out as God did with Adam, Abram and Jacob? As I watch this video, and I submit that there may be more that occurred before this portion of the video, my questions would be, if the spirit of the Lord was upon him so powerfully, as it was with Jesus (Luke 4:18-19), Paul (Acts 19:11-12)

and Peter (Acts 5:14-16) for the Kingdom purpose of demonstrating God’s healing power, that is, restoring health and well-being so that they could serve God in their God-given, Divine purpose, why were not the two gentlemen walking behind him, who are touching him, why are they not stretched out? Why wasn’t everyone he passed by stretched out? What is the “funny/laughter” about? What is up with the man jumping on top of the pulpit, a sacred place, Holy Ground? Why is he running into the baptismal, a sacred place, Holy Ground? #WhereistheRespect #PulpitisHolyGround

The Pulpit is Holy Ground (Nehemiah 8:1-8) The Pulpit is Holy Ground


The Pulpit is Holy Ground

Today if there is ever a time when a man is on “holy ground” it is when he is preaching Christ and Him crucified. Qualifications are specified. The inspired writer says, “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also” (2 Tim 2:2). Peter demanded, “If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God” (1 Pet 4:11). Preaching and teaching the word of God is a serious matter. The pulpit is no place for frivolity and merrymaking. Theatrics and foolishness are as out of place in the pulpit as a cowbell in a musical concert, and beneath the dignity of a faithful representative of the crucified Christ. No man has a right to profane the pulpit while representing the Saviour of the world. Cuteness and slang may provoke a laugh from the less spiritual, but the more serious disciple of Jesus demands sincerity and evidence that Christ lives in us (Gal 2:20)…”

“Question: “What does the Bible mean when it refers to holy ground?”

Answer: The phrase “holy ground” is found only twice in the Bible, once in the Old Testament and once in the New. God Himself first identified the area in which He met with Moses on Mount Horeb (Sinai) as holy ground. It was there that God commanded Moses to go to Pharaoh and demand that he let the people go from bondage to Egypt. At the moment Moses came upon the burning bush out of which God spoke to him, God gave him two commands: don’t come near and take off your sandals. Both commands were to impress upon Moses that he was standing on holy ground (Exodus 3:5). Joshua 5:15 describes a similar incident, but the phrase “holy ground” is not used.

It was not that the actual ground on which Moses stood was holy; rather, it was the presence of the holy God that made it holy.”
