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!!

Fasting under the New Covenant – Daniel Fast

Christianity, Daniel Fast, Fasting, Health, Well-Being

The Old Covenant was for those living under the law

The New Covenant is for those who are led by the Spirit

We (believers) who live after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are now called New Covenant believers, who are led by the Spirit (“For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God” Romans 8:14)

This is my personal understanding on fasting. As a New Covenant believer I do not fast for ‘religious duties’ and neither do I fast to ‘get’ God to move. God has already moved, He has already moved sin out-of-the-way in the body of Jesus Christ “once for all” (Heb 10:10) and “sin has been condemned in the flesh” Romans 8:3. We are not fasting to ‘get’ because we ‘have’, everything has been provided for at the cross through Jesus. You are already blessed with every spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1:3), you have already been healed (1 Peter 2:24), you are already forgiven (Ephesians 1:7), and you are already holy (1 Peter 2:9). Therefore, when I am fasting I fast to spend consecrated time with God, to be focused on Him (not me), and to be focused on His word.

“We fast to get our minds in line with God’s word and to have a greater understanding on what He’s already done – Creflo Dollar

 Ok, so here we go.

I think it is always nice to have an understanding into fasting so here are a few truths and I will give you ideas of different types of fasts. You can choose, which you feel led to do.

Spiritual benefits of fasting

  • It’s a time for you to solely focused on God and His word
  • It is a good way to gain self-control over your flesh (showing you have dominion over your flesh in more than one way)

Physical benefits to fasting

  • You sleep better
  • Your bowel movements are regulated and healthier
  • Improves your immune systems and your metabolism is improved
  • Is good for your skin and body

 

Top Tips (prior) to beginning your fast Fasting, why is it so hard?

  • I usually cut out all caffeine (herbal teas included, any caffeinated) a couple of days prior to fasting, as when you stop all of a sudden you can get really bad headaches! This is due to the toxins leaving your body
  • Start cutting out any of the sugary or bad food as well
  • Try reducing the amount of food consumption to get your body prepared
  • I always find that getting ‘mentally prepared’ truly helps you to stay focused, disciplined and stick it out!
  • When eating foods on a Daniel Fast, be very careful for the ingredients in food! You’ll actually come to realise that there are HUGE amounts of E numbers, Artificial additives and lots of icky things that you will begin to eliminate from your entire diet as a way of life after this!
  • Drink lots of water! Stay hydrated and a lot of our hunger really is thirst
  • Do spend time in the word and in prayer during your fast
  • Listen to good teaching
  • Keep a journal to note what you feel God is speaking to you about, any dreams you have and any scriptures that really speak to you during this time
  • Don’t shout it from the rooftops!

Types of fasts

  • No food – just water
  • Daniel Fast
  • Partial fast (to have only light dinner/ only light breakfast etc.)

I will be sharing on a daniel fast, as this is a fast I tend to do more often over longer periods of time. I.e: 3 days, 7 days, 10 days etc. You choose can choose which you prefer.

Before we begin, please feel free to contact us: edensmastrpiece@outlook.com or www.edensmasterpiece.org if you need someone to speak to or be there for you as you embark on your fast

Begin

  1. Decide how long you wish to fast (if it is your first time or you are not familiar with fasting start off with 1 day then move to 3 and grow from there).
  2. Decide which fast you will take part in
  3. Plan, when you will eat and what you will eat.
  4. DO check which foods you should and should not eat
  5. Take note of my tips above and most importantly, enjoy! This is not a penance

Remember this is not for brownie points or to show off. Fasting doesn’t make you any more holier than anyone else, if you think this way that actually makes you very self-righteous when in fact we are righteous! If you break your fast on the first day, don’t beat yourself up. We’ve all been there. You’re more than welcome to let us know and we can be there for you. Take your time and know that even if you don’t complete your fast God still loves you regardless. His love for you does not change based on your performance and neither does it make you any less or a bad Christian!

Grace & Peace, Tanya

Why God made Eve?

Uncategorized

127602292

In the beginning God created Adam and then the woman. He created them differently. Just as the body with different functions, men and women we function differently (even living on different planets sometimes!). Women are more intuitive and men are more logical. Women like to go to the toilet with their friends, whilst men can contently go on their own. This though is the beauty of being a woman, that we are so mysterious. Just like when I met my husband, before we were together he got to know me, he got to find out what I was about. Then he liked what he saw, then resulting in us wanting to spend the rest of our lives together. Now even as a husband and wife, we continue to discover each other day by day.

Eve was formed from Adams rib. Question: What does the rib do? So many people I have asked this question to have very quickly responded “to protect the heart”! Answer: Yes, however, I would like to throw a different outlook into the mix. The rib is a vital part to the skeletal infrastructure. The rib curves from the front of the body around to the back. Just as women know, we certainly do, do a lot behind the scenes! Women have been created with amazing attributes, beautiful characteristics and numerous capabilities.

When God created man God said “It is not good for man to be alone” Genesis 2:18          notice: It did not say man was lonely! The passage goes on to state that God would make a helper. The word “helper” here holds the same meaning as that in the New Testament to describe the “Holy Spirit”; being called to ones side. This shows that women play a vital role within supporting men as  a helper, comforter, adviser just as the Holy Spirit! What an honor ladies!

The men lead us, we like to be led, they are natural-born leaders (God has called men to be the leaders in the family & marriage Ephesians 5:23), as a wife you are called to encourage your man to be the leader and not to contend that. This does not mean it is ok for manipulation and dominance, but the man should always love, trust and respect his wife so that she would be happy and comfortable with her husband taking the lead in return. As women, we want to feel protected, nurtured and wanted. Whilst, men like to take on the protective, heroic, needed role. This should never be abused, a godly man would always honour this as a role from God.

Studies have proven that if you were to put a young boy and girl into a room with two boxes, one containing boys trucks and action heroes, the other with girls dolls and playing clothes.  The girl would opt for the dolls and the boy to the trucks. Same way that God designed us daughters with a princess heart to want to be looked after, delicately handled, pursued and sought after. Lavished with love and be treated like a princess! You have been clothed with beauty. Make sure you understand and maintain this ladies. You are a princess! Most importantly Gods Princess.

Once you receive the love of God, you can learn to be loved, and can healthily love others.

Don’t worry ladies, if you’re reading this thinking what about the single ladies? I will be covering this topic in my next post. In the meantime, you can read this as advice for when you are married 🙂

Come along to our meeting on Saturday 7th February 2015 to hear more on discovering yourself as the woman who God has created you to be. Like us on Facebook for further information.
