I do agree with the article about praying in Jesus’ blood. It’s simply not biblical.
I’m a Pentecostal, who believes in all the gifts of the spirit. I’ve heard the term slain in the spirit or drunk in the spirit for many years. So I decided to do some research. Many that I asked pointed to Acts chapter two as the basis of their belief. But when you look at the scripture, what where the people doing on the day of Pentacost? The Word tells us that when the Holy Spirit fell on them, each person began speaking in tongues. Meaning they were speaking in the native languages of the different people who where in Jerusalem about Jesus (Acts 2:1-15). So I prayed for God to show me. My spirit wasn’t satisfied. What constitutes someone to believe in the term drunk in the spirit or slain in the spirit? After digging deep into God’s Word, God showed me a scripture that validates the term “drunk in the spirit”. In the book of Jeremiah chapter 23, Jeremiah is consumed by the Holy Spirit over what the prophets of Israel where doing. In verse 9, Jeremiah explains how he feels being consumed by the Holy Spirit. “Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the Lord , and because of the words of his holiness.” (Jeremiah 23:9).
Some may disagree with what I truly feel God showed me and that’s alright. My spirit bares witness to God’s truth.

Very interesting article and terrific point of view. I also had assumed that slain in the spirit was an incident from the book of Acts where the husband and wife who were phony Christians and stole from the church and then lied about it were slain by the spirit. They were knocked dead. But if that is one of the origins of the slain in the spirit idea it really is not logical. Because these people were killed by the spirit for apostasy. So I have often wondered about that angle of it!

Whenever I’ve seen someone allegedly be “slain in the Spirit,” it reminds me more of a faint caused by excessive amounts of adrenaline, pumped up by the hyper-emotion and noise. In other words, it’s a panic attack.

I often ,when I pray, say something like, since Jesus she’d his blood to save us and forgive us, please wash me in his blood tonight and take away my sins of the day. Now, that you let me know we are not supposed to pray about blood, what other way can I word this while praying?

Praying to the Father in Jesus’ name is how Jesus said we are to pray. Does that make sense my friend.

Is the babbling I hear in churches today the biblical meaning of speaking in tongues,especially if everyone there speaks English???? Really need to know

Jack Wellman March 24, 2018 at 10:48 am

Hello my friend. No, likely many are not speaking in tongues because the word tongues used in the New Testament means “language” so it’s a known language, and not unknown babbling. I agree.
