Twenty Stories of How People Received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Mark Virkler's picture

I wanted real life stories of how people received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the gift of speaking in tongues, so I sent out an email asking for people to share their testimonies with me. Below are 20 such stories I received back. My guess is that if we did a survey of 2000, what we have below would be fairly typical of the 2000. So what do we learn from their true life stories?

daily word - lessons?

Dale Cresap's picture

How do you select the books you read, your teachers, and other sources of instruction? Do you have a methodical process for this? Does it seem that you come across just the right thing at the time you are ready for it? Perhaps you are being led by the Spirit. Have I not promised  to perfect that which concerns you? You are constantly surrounded by lessons. When you are ready you will see them. Be alert, be aware, be attentive, be receptive and the lessons will find you. He who has ears to hear and eyes to see, let him hear and see. When I open doors for you walk through them.

daily word - motivation

Dale Cresap's picture

What is your motivation for going to church? Do you go for your own benefit or for the benefit of the Kingdom of God? Is it possible to get both? How many people do you know who do not go to church because they don’t get anything out of it? I addressed this matter when I said that if you seek to save your life you will lose it, but if you lose your life for my sake and the Kingdom of God, you will find it. Is this passage a mystery to you?

Muslims Coming to Christ Through Visions of Jesus

Mark Virkler's picture

Biblically speaking, vision and seeing in the Spirit are to be part of our evangelistic work. Not only did Jesus see vision all the time (Jn. 5:19,20,30), but look at the prominence of vision in the missionary work of the book of Acts. The scriptural evidence is overwhelming. Below is a listing of verses from Acts followed by testimonies on the web showing Jesus is still appearing in visions today, converting Muslims. We need to expect the voice and vision of God will be key in our evangelistic outreaches today. Evangelism is to be supernatural!

daily word - awesome

Dale Cresap's picture

Have you ever heard of anything described as awesome? Have you heard this term being applied to every item of passing interest? Awe is a legitimate concept, but the term is applied far too loosely today. Things that are really awesome have a profound effect on you. Awesome things have an expansive scope and scary intensity that leaves you shook up and reminded that you are not the center and measure of all things. This is what the prophet experienced when he said, Woe is me, for I have seen the Lord. It is what you long for but cannot endure.

daily word - examine yourself

Dale Cresap's picture

So let a man examine himself. You recognize this famous passage about the process of taking communion. This doesn’t have to be a grim review of everything you have done wrong. You may get more benefit from an honest evaluation of what is working for you and what is not, and deciding to do more of what is and less of what isn’t. How often do you take communion? The passage says you should perform this self-evaluation at these times but does not limit it to those. You don’t need to wait for a sacramental ritual.

Living in Rest Requires Living at Peace with Myself and Others

Mark Virkler's picture

I concluded that stress was the major cause of my heart attack, so I became diligent to enter God’s rest (Hebrews 4:11). Part of this rest involves a heart that is at peace with myself and others. The peace of God guards our hearts (Phil. 4:6-7). Being emotionally troubled over relationships does not result in peace or rest for one’s heart.

I know for many years of my life, judging ruled rather than mercy and peace. Micah 6:8 says I am to DO justly and LOVE mercy. I had those two flipped: I loved judging and only did mercy. After being critical, I would feel anger or contempt about the person or the situation. This is not peace. These negative emotions surely damaged my heart and contributed toward my heart attack.

daily word - dish it or take it?

Dale Cresap's picture

Have you heard of people who can dish it out but can’t take it? This is no compliment. It implies that someone is eager to be critical, but unable to receive criticism themselves. In a world of perfect symmetry those who are eager to give criticism should be willing to receive it as well, and those who cannot receive it should refrain from giving it. Yet there is another possibility. What about those who are able to receive criticism but hesitate to give it? This would be a position of grace, one who benefits from criticism if it is justified, and refuses to react against unjust criticism.

daily word - believe in people

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you believe in people? Have you ever heard a fellow believer say they only believe in God and not in people? This may sound very spiritual, but if you look beneath the surface you will find underlying bitterness and isolation. The greatest two commandments are to love God with all you have and your neighbor as yourself. The beloved disciple expounded on this to say how can you love God whom you have not seen if you do not love your brother whom you have seen? You can extend this same principle to believing, understanding that it is different from believing for salvation.

The Supernatural Power of Self-Love

Charity Kayembe's picture

I was excited to meet Bill at a recent workshop. He is enrolled in our Hearing God Through Your Dreams e-Learning module and had begun receiving incredible revelation from Heaven through his visions at night. In a dream, the Lord revealed that self-hatred was a root cause underlying the autoimmune issues he had been dealing with for years and how to address it by learning to feel about himself the way God feels about him. That is, unconditional love.

Do you often wake up feeling there was a significant message in your dream, but you’re just not sure what it is? Like Daniel and Joseph, do you long to be able to help others understand their own dreams and win them to Christ as you explain His night messages to them? Wouldn't it be nice if you could receive mid-course corrections from the Lord while you sleep? Do you wish you could be receiving divine inspiration, creative solutions to problems, and direction from the Lord during that third of your life that you’re “just” sleeping?

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
