Bring It On-Line: Holy Spirit Manifestations

I am in a youth group in a spirit-filled church, always been taught that the Holy Spirit is a gentleman and He will not make you act in a way that makes anyone uncomfortable. There is a girl in our youth group and each time she is taken by the ... Read Transcript


WE'VE GOT SOME GREAT "BRING

IT ON" QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

LYNN WRITES, "I AM IN A

YOUTH GROUP IN A CHURCH, AND

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TAUGHT

THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS A

GENTLEMAN, AND WHEN YOU ARE

FILLED WITH HIM, HE WILL NOT

MAKE YOU ACT IN A WAY THAT

MAKES ANYONE UNCOMFORTABLE.

THAT BEING SAID, THERE IS A

GIRL IN OUR YOUTH GROUP, AND

EACH TIME SHE IS TAKEN BY

THE SPIRIT, SHE ROLLS ON THE

FLOOR AND LAUGHS.

I HAVE HAD PEOPLE LEAVE THE

GROUP BECAUSE THEY'RE

UNCOMFORTABLE.

I TOLD MY PASTOR, AND HE

SAID MY COMMENTS ARE FROM

THE DEVIL, AND IT'S IN THE

BIBLE.

MY FRIENDS ARE MISSING OUT

ON GOD BECAUSE OF HER.

IS IT OKAY WHEN PEOPLE ACT

LIKE THIS AT THE EXPENSE OF

OTHERS' SPIRITUAL LIFE

STRIKERS.

Gordon SPIRITUAL

LIFE?"

Gordon: YOU FIND THIS,

WHAT ARE THE GIFTS, YOU FIND

THAT IN CHAPTER 12 AND 13.

AND THEN PAUL SUMS IT ALL UP

IN CHAPTER 14.

THERE IS A DIVERGENCE HERE

BETWEEN LETTING THINGS BEING

DONE AND LETTING THEM BE

DONE IN ORDER.

I'LL GO AHEAD AND READ IT,

"LET ALL THINGS BE DONE

DECENTLY AND IN ORDER."

SO LET'S SPLIT THAT IN TWO.

SOME CHURCHES DON'T EVER LET

ANYTHING BE DONE.

SO IN TERMS OF MOVEMENT OF

THE SPIRIT, THERE IS NONE.

AND THEN YOU CAN GO OVER

BOARD, WHERE IT TURNS

CHAOTIC.

AND PAUL WARNS ABOUT THAT.

LET IT BE DONE, BUT IN ORDER

AND DECENTLY.

AND SO THERE IS A FINE LINE

YOU'VE GOT TO WALK IN THE

EXERCISE OF THE GIFTS AND IN

THE MANIFESTATIONS.

WHAT YOU'RE EXPERIENCING IS

EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED IN

CORINTH.

"IF THE WHOLE CHURCH COMES

TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE AND

ALL SPEAK WITH TONGUES, AND

THERE COMES IN THOSE WHO ARE

UNINFORMED, OR UNBELIEVERS,

WILL THEY NOT SAY THAT YOU

ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND?"

AND THAT'S WHAT'S GOING ON

IN YOUR YOUTH GROUP.

I LIKE TO REMIND PEOPLE WHAT

PAUL REMINDED CORINTHIAN,

THE SPIRIT OF THE PROPHET

ARE SUBJECT TO THE

PROPHETS.

THAT MEANS YOU'RE IN

CONTROL.

THE HOLY SPIRIT NEVER GETS

YOU OUT OF CONTROL.

SO IF YOU'RE ACTING OUT IN

THIS WAY, AND IT'S CAUSING

CONFUSION, THEN YOU NEED TO

GO TO THAT INDIVIDUAL AND

EXPLAIN TO THEM YOU CAN DO

IT A BETTER WAY.
