Father, Son and Holy Bible???

Mark Virkler's picture

Since the historical Church has minimized the role of the Holy Spirit, and replaced living by the Spirit (Gal. 5:25) with living by the Bible, we need to restore Him to His rightful place in our lives.


Note the first part of the Apostles' Creed below: (Source - spurgeon.org)

  • I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
  • I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven and is seated in the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
  • I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy church....

Notice they have absolutely nothing to say about the Holy Spirit other than He exists!
Is the Bible really that silent about the Holy Spirit, or do they have a problem here?

Well, we have written an entire book in which we guide the reader in looking up every Scripture verse about the Holy Spirit, and journaling about it, with the goal of discovering WHO HE IS and what He does and how we are to relate and interact with Him. This book is Intimacy with the Holy Spirit.

I have condensed the five-page summary prayer at the end of the book (page 209-214), to the following simple prayer you can hang on your mirror and pray every morning and evening.


Holy Spirit, Come
  • Holy Spirit, I come to You. I welcome You (Eph. 1:17,18). I will not grieve You (Eph. 4:25-32).
  • Holy Spirit, I look to see You, and You show me Your perspective (Jn. 5:19,20,30).
  • You give me Your thoughts (1 Cor. 2:12-16). You tell me what’s on the heart of God (Heb. 3:7).
  • I feel You (Ezek. 3:14). You release God’s emotions within me (Gal. 5:22-23).
  • You guide me. You sanctify me for my life’s work (Matt. 12:18; Rom. 15:16).
  • You anoint my lips, my mind, my heart, my hands (2 Sam. 23:2; Ex. 28:3;31:3).
  • You make me creative (Ex. 35:31-33). Let Your words flow through me (Lk. 1:67).
  • You release Your ability through me (1 Cor. 12:7-11). You release in me the power to be holy (2 Cor. 3:4-6; Jn. 6:63).
  • You release the power of God to me. Authenticate Your words with Your power (Acts 4:31).
  • You take me away (Rev. 21:10; 22:17).
Holy Spirit, Come

Purchase the book or ebook here: Intimacy with The Holy Spirit 

Wouldn't this be a good time to prayerfully explore every verse in the Bible on the Holy Spirit? This would allow you to discover all that He desires to do for you. Also learn how you can effectively interact with Him every day, all day, thus ascending to your biblically commanded posture of living and walking by the Spirit (Gal. 5:25). You will be allowing the God of Scripture to guide your daily walk rather than displacing Him with a book He has written which describes other people's experiences with Him.

I love what Bill Johnson says, "It's hard to have the same fruit as the early church when we value a book they didn't have above the Holy Spirit they did have."

The testimony below is from Alexey, who only a few weeks ago learned to do two-way journaling as he worked through the Communion With God Course with a Personal Spiritual Trainer. Alexey is in the process of breaking away from the Communist heritage of his ancestors. The journaling below is an example of living by the Spirit or out of the voice of God. Alexey has lived out of the word for years and now is finding life in the Holy Spirit, and experiencing what it feels like to walk by the Spirit.

(My two-way journaling workshop with Jesus)


Good evening, Lord. I haven’t enough words that I could thank you enough, that you are calling me into your actions. What does this mean, Lord? I am ready to hear and receive. Do you wish to tell me something? Today I lost focus, forgive me. I would like to learn to find you in my spirit.

I would like to live through you. Would you like to give me this opportunity?

Yes, Lord, I would.

Then don’t limit me with your decisions that are controlled by fear.

How to destroy this spirit of fear? Lord, I have no faith.

Then ask from me, I’ll give it to you.

I am asking now for your faith to defeat this fear. Are there steps I should take to remove this fear?

Unconditional love chases out fear.

What does this practically mean? I know it’s written in your Word. How does it work?

Where I am there is no fear. When my presence is manifested there is only love there, which remains. Where there is love, be there, abide in it. Everything that is won over by love will not pass away. This is the fruit that remains.

I understand. Wonderful! How do I experience this in my life?

(Note: at this moment I experienced such an intense presence of God that I forgot everything) …

You are just now experiencing it. I am with you, don’t you feel it?

Absolutely! There - I feel fire inside of me….

Don’t quench it, it is a standard, sign of my presence, don’t pour on it your own actions. Go after this, and you will know my presence in a practical way.

Oh Lord, it is so wonderful to worship You. I have no words now, they’re not enough… I now understand that it’s not as important to know answers to my questions as it is to realize who is with me in this moment. The question will always be, “am I living in an awareness of You or am I living in self-awareness?”

My Holy Spirit is the indicator that shows, teaches, leads, and creates through your human spirit. You can know him by sensing him in your inner man. Remember that I am in your heart. The sensation inside of you is the indicator of faith. Remember that the language of faith is different than the language of the mind. Protect this sensation inside of you, don’t let the seducing spirits injure your heart.

I want to worship you, Lord Jesus.

I know that. This kind of worshippers does my Father look for, and you are one of them.

Thank you.

You want to ask me how to follow Me, right?

Yes, Lord.

You see that my presence takes away all your questions. Where there are no more questions, there are no more problems.

Then what is left?

You and I … our fellowship together … This is a time of joy in our union. This is the culmination of all: my union with my creation. This is the celebration of love. This is better than money. Do you agree?

Yes, Lord.

My life swallows up everything. Literally everything! Celebrate the feast of my Life!

A new book has just been released that accompanies this workbook: Click here for Hearing God Through Your Dreams by Charity Kayembe and Mark Virkler (featured on Sid Roth's "It's Supernatural", with over half a million views just on YouTube).


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?
