Real Spiritual Experiences

Baptized In The Holy Spirit

 

This was many years ago when I was a born again Christian. I am no longer, but do believe there is a higher power, just not necessarily Christ. Christ is not old enough. I believe Christ, Buddha, etc., are the same entity. There is something, but it is beyond comprehension.

My story: I was "baptized in the holy spirit". I went up to the alter, they laid their hands on me and I felt something enter my body. It was overwhelming. I fell to the floor (like you see people do). As I was laying there, it felt as though my arms and legs were floating above the ground ever so slightly because I felt so light and an OVERWHELMING feeling of love. The experience was wonderful. I was down for quite some time... Longer than most... Because whatever was in me wasn't leaving. And I didn't mind. The feeling was so overwhelming I cried and cried. But I was crying from joy. Something I have never experienced again.

What was this? As I am older, I have a harder time believing it was Christ's "holy spirit". But it was something. Was it my guardian? Do we have guardians? Can I make this happen again? Is it wise to? And why me? Why do I feel like I am being watched out for?

About a year before I was "baptized" I had a negative spiritual experience. Nothing entered my body, but there was something messing with me and trying to scare me. (Since this site isn't about "ghosts", I guess I can't really talk about it, but I wonder if somehow these entities are related in some way.)

Any insight would be helpful. Thanks!

You are experincing the holy spirit there, a born again experince. Only in Christs name can this happen. You reject christ as your means to salvaion it seems. Go to christ and ask him again to show you he is the way.

Your altar experience sounds typical of being slain in the Holy Spirit. While you are slain the Holy Spirit is ministering to your spirit. Being "born again" is very important in being saved and going to heaven with God. There is NO OTHER God but GOD... No other name will you be saved but by Jesus. Not through Buddha or anyone else. Only through Jesus. As for the experience of something scaring you, "ghost"... I can assure you that it is not a ghost picking on you or waiting to cross over some kind of realm. Any spirit you see that is not an Angel, is a demon. Demons will appear as little kids, sweet old ladies, your grandpa, some ancient Indian... They are all demons and need to be told to go back to the pit of hell and that you want it to leave and to never return... IN JESUS NAME! Jesus' name is the only power and authority that is above the demons. The demons know it and they have to obey a believer in Jesus who tells them to leave. You must have the faith in the power and the blood of Jesus when you tell them to leave. Be sure to repent to Jesus for your sins and ask Him to have mercy on you. To encamp your angels around you to protect you. Trust me... You need to find your way back to God and leave behind the false gods that don't have the power or authority over the evil powers in the world. God Bless all of you... In Jesus' name ❤

When I was younger I had that happen to me as well. Not exactly, I would start out crying but then would feel the sense of love and then start laughing until my sides hurt. It only happened at church. That was when I, my mother and brother went to church like 4 times a week.
I would think that it was the Holy Spirit. I believe in the trio. God/Son/Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the one that dwells within us, God is the one who watches over us and the Son is the one who saved us.
I wouldn't think it was your guardian. Your guardian is the one who delivers the messages back to God. When push comes to shove he/she is allowed to help in any way they could; Like one of my favorite stories on here is "stalked by the devil, saved by an angel" by alarmman2011.
Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be open to you.
Having this happen is like a recharging experience for me. No matter how many times you have it done it will always make you feel loved, cared for and even might make you appear younger.
Jesus loves you; everything about you, from the tip of your head to the souls of your feet.
Prayer; someone out there is always praying for you. In my case I would think prayers are retroactive. My grandfather loved me and he was a very powerful intercessor. His words still bless me to this day 26 years later.
"God is love." No matter where you go, if there is pure overwhelming love then God is there.
I wouldn't think so. A "ghost" as you put it is a spiritual entity that died but keep wanting to live even though they can't. They haven't found it in themselves to leave this earth and enter into judgement. Sure ghosts scare me as well they're more of a nuicance then anything else.
If it wasn't a ghost and if it was a dark entity then that would be a different matter.
If I at all offend you in anyway I don't mean to. I'm just explaining my pov I gather from my life.

Ally,
I must say your honest heart and open mind God loves. Most Christians are set in their ways, and sometimes fell to open their hearts and minds to God and his word. At least you're honest and I respect your views.

If you believe the word of God and I think you do, you have faith in his word. I read the part about Christ being too young and I smiled. The Book of Col. Tells us that Jesus was before "ALL THINGS" and by him, all things consist. (exist)
Whether they be thrones, princpalities, in heaven and in earth.

The book of Revelation, Jesus said, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, which was, which is, and which is to come, THE ALMIGHTY!"

I also think it would do you good to be baptized in his name "Jesus" by water and then you recieve the Holy Ghost and he speaks throuh you, to. You'll never have any doubt!

I respect others beliefs and try to stay open minded, but I fell as the word says, that every knee shall bow, a tongue confess that hi is LORD!

I totally recommend reading the articles on this site. They are some of the most well written and truth infused informative pieces I have ever read. They should be able to help shed some light on things.
I'd also recommend "Keys to the Kingdom and New Dimensions of Being" by Elizabeth Clare Prophet, this book should answer any other questions you have. It did for me:)

All those saints I believe had the Holy Spirit or came from him (as I believe we all come from God) to teach mankind to seek Him. God shows himself to his children in many forms, for the buddist it is Buddha for the catholics Jezus and so on, but in reality it is One... I think

Hope this helped.
