Why Do ONLY Right-Brainers Get Slain in the Spirit? Can Left-Brainers Experience This Also?

Mark Virkler's picture

When talking to the leadership team at Catch the Fire in Toronto, they confirmed that when they pray for people, not everyone is slain in the Spirit. For those who don't know, being slain in the Spirit is falling over (generally backward), when someone is in front of you praying for you. The understanding is that the Holy Spirit is coming upon them and this weakens them so they fall down, and then normally they rest under the Spirit's power as they lay on the floor and He ministers to them.

Lord, What Does a Lifestyle of Living in "Flow" Look Like?

This was a question I had participants at the Catch the Fire Leadership School journal about while I was teaching there last week. We played the Sea of Galilee music in the background and asked, "Lord, what does a lifestyle of living in the flow look like for me?" The Flow, of course, is the River of the Holy Spirit which flows within all believers (Jn. 7:37-39).

Which of These Four Places Do You Gaze as You Worship? ONLY ONE Is Correct! by Jeff Duncan

Dr. Mark Virkler introduced me to the term "throne room worship." Though I have done what throne room worship is, I had never specifically termed it as such. Recently I was at a seminar where Mark taught briefly on throne room worship. This was a 3 day seminar at Singing Waters Ministries where I am the worship leader.  He asked this question. “During worship, where are you looking?”  After people gave a few responses, he summed it up by saying, “We can be staring at the lyrics on the screen, or at the back of the person’s head in front of us, or we can be looking to the Lord, fixing our eyes on Jesus, coming into His throne room with all of Heaven and the angels and saints.”

How Jesus Restores, Reintegrates and Heals Our Brokenness

Mark Virkler's picture

Life hits us with many encounters of pain and failure. We create beliefs and make promises to ourselves based on these encounters. If we don’t hear from Jesus while developing these beliefs, they are most likely wrong and destructive to our beings. It is like we have a broken part within us that is separate from the rest of us. For example, I may normally be fun-loving and carefree, but when it comes to this one issue, I am fearful and anxious. The one issue could be things like: losing weight, providing an income, honoring and cherishing myself and my children.

The pain of poor digestion had been with me for 30 years. Some days I was so frustrated I just wanted to quit eating altogether!!! It took me awhile to recognize that I had poor digestion, then to understand that digestion was crucial to my health, and finally to discover a way to completely resolve digestion issues. Now that has all changed, and in the interest of helping others maintain maximum health, I want to share some recent changes I have made.
