Holy Ghost laughter real or fake?

So last night I went to my first ever Rodney Howard Browne meeting. I am not one to go to a lot of ‘church meetings’ but Saturday I felt to go, my husband was already adamant he would go too. The church meeting was Sunday and it was the very same church we had met in exactly 2 years ago, Kensington Temple in London. I knew that God would do something great this day. We went with great expectancy that God would do something significant in our lives. I have seen Rodney’s videos before and I admire them along with Kenneth Hagin’s Holy Ghost meetings.

Ever since our visit to Poland in March earlier this year I’ve seen a lot more manifestations of the spirit in laughter within our meetings. I’ve not, not believed in it, I just haven’t experienced it for myself. Don’t get me wrong I speak in tongues, I believe in the power and miracles of Jesus. I guess I am more observant as I’ve grown up with seeing people who ‘fake’ the falling in the Spirit, as we say “slain in the spirit”. However, lately I’ve been more open to the Holy Spirit saying that Lord if I do go down or anything I want it to be so genuine that not even a man needs to touch me. So what happened? God did just that!

During the meeting last night Rodney spoke of countless meetings in which the joy of the Lord broke out. My husband sitting next to me instantly was sensitive to the spirit and started saying he could feel the Holy Spirit tangibly. A woman starts hysterically laughing on our aisle and Rodney calls her forth and that’s it bang, she’s slain on the floor. Another woman laughs, gets called forth bang! Before you knew it Rodney calls my husband forth asks him what he does and bang! He’s on the floor like an electrocuted fish!! This gave me goosebumps and tingly feet.  My heart was racing and I’m there saying “Ok God, do what you want with me”. Rodney pulls a few people forth most our friends and they all slump to floor like a sack of potatoes, my heart rejoices as I know God is doing something amazing in them.
Then Rodney comes to the guy in front of me (picture attached) and I start laughing. Then I start laughing, like hysterically!! What happened next was the beginning of my first ever real experience with the Holy Spirit, it was laughter in the Spirit. It was something I’ve seen in a Kenneth Hagin video but had never experienced for myself. I’m laughing, then I’m jumping in my seat, it feels like metres high at a time. In that moment your mind doesn’t have time to think, comprehend or care! This is a spiritual matter. I start jumping in my seat and before I know it I’m up and dancing like a crazy woman in my aisle! All dignity out the window and the Holy Spirit is just all over me and I’m dancing at like 60mph on the spot. I am filled with a supernatural joy that is indescribable and I just can’t stop laughing. It’s so true you can’t ever say! I think I’ve had an encounter with the Holy Spirit”, you just know!
I certainly know that I got touched last night and something happened in the spirit realm that I know will have a ripple effect for the rest of my life and for our ministry. A pinnacle one in fact!

We are ministering in Wolverhampton this weekend, which I know will be a very powerful meeting and I am certainly expectant of the Holy Spirit to break out in a greater way. If you want to be there register here
This is just the beginning and I know something significant has taken place. The UK will not remain the same and revival is going to break out through US, the body of Christ. Hallelujah!

Conclusion: Manifestations of the Holy Spirit? Absolutely real!!

Learning how to dance in the rain – Gods way

Christian Lifestyle, Everyday Living, Grace Talk, Woman to Woman

Literally sometimes it’s better to say nothing than say anything at all, but when you are saying something, what are you saying?

God has been speaking to me for the last fortnight about perspective and our words toward God. Are we mumbling, and groaning when we spend time with God or are we in awe, thanking Him for who He is? For the last two weeks, in the midst of challenging situations I’ve been thanking Him and magnifying God and His beauty over my ‘feelings’ and what I’ve been facing. This has really helped me have some of the best couple of weeks, during the most challenging of times.

Thankfulness

Reading Romans 1:21 “because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened”. When your heart is dark, it’s hard. Ezekiel 36:26 refers to the OT’s people’s hearts and refers to the heart which Christ would give us “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh” The Spirit gives us a heart of flesh, because Christ now lives in us. It’s the humble heart that surrenders and says I can’t do this on my own, I need Jesus and His strength. The people of the OT said they knew how to do things ‘their’ way and whatever needed doing, they could ‘do’ Exodus 19:8 (emphasis added).

Our hearts can become hardened when we aren’t thankful, but most importantly thankful to God. I’ve met people that appreciate what they have but don’t look to God as the one who gave them their blessings. They “worked hard” for that house, to raise the children, to put food on the table. This puts the glory on themselves, now yes, we do work and we do work hard. However, who gave you that job – to be able to pay for the house – to eat food on that table?? Where did the wood for that table come from?? We must thank the creator, not the created.

A great place to start is with your own life. In example, if you have a big bill to pay but you don’t have the money to pay for it. Find ten, twenty things to thank God for. Thank Him He is bigger than your bill and that He will provide for you because His word says in a popular scripture, which we all know and quote Philippians 4:19 “And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” BUT, we must read what the scripture says in context. Read the scriptures before to paint the full story:

V4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

V6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

V8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things!!!

Then it goes on to say and God shall supply…Have a think on this and have a read of Romans 1 and Phillipians 4, I know I am speaking to you this morning. Ah but you don’t know Tanya I’ve been here for so long.

You can make a change now. Don’t get involved in complaining, the more you magnify and glorify God, making Him bigger than anything and EVERYthing in your life, you will see a drastic change. No one wants to be around a complainer. The more positive you are and speaking life the more people would want to be around you.

People would rather be around a slow worker whose positive than a fast worker who’s miserable and always complains.

Eternity, having the perspective of eternity and thanking God will help you to magnify Him and minimise your problems. Whatever you’re going through whichever situation you’re facing. What’s your outlook? If you’re letting problems get to you. Your eyes aren’t on Jesus. Magnify Jesus and your problems will be looked in perspective.

I challenge you, whatever situation you are currently facing. Thank God for all the good He’s done, doing, going to do in your life. I promise you, your day will begin to get a lot better, and so will your relationship with your lovingly Heavenly Father.

After all when we’re in Heaven, will this problem be so big then?
