Me too!! I want more! I want to see more of the Holy Spirit in my church. I go to a large church and the Holy Spirit is never talked about from the pulpit. I am one of a group who are praying for the Holy Spirit to show up boldly. To see lives changed. I want Holy Spirit fire! However, it is with a prayer for discernment that I seek out other followers for fear of the enemy masquerading as holy fire. It leaves me paralyzed to seek more from another church. So what am i to do? I am hungry for more of Jesus. I cannot get enough of His Word, I pray and read my bible.
Take it from one who has suffered this fear for years: Carol Lynn does not exploit our fear. She does us the courtesy of taking us seriously, which quite frankly no male in this church has ever done. You simply cannot wave away this question as if it is not based in logical thought. Angela has already mentioned the temple and the words of part prophets that give this fear a solid foundation. These issues deserve critical engagement, not offhand dismissal. 2b1af7f3a8
