“32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. 33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 40 Let all things be done decently and in order.” – 1 Cor 14:32-33, 40
A practice that has spread quickly around the world is this belief that being “slain in the Spirit” is a move of God practiced throughout the Bible. This is has even been endorsed by popes/catholics and other pseudochristian organizations (should be a warning when those that worship another Jesus claim to have the same Spirit). To be “slain” is to be killed, destroyed, beaten, scourged, etc. If we’re supposed to kill our flesh daily and will die a real, natural death, how many more times should we have to die? The Bible says those who are born again will never die (spiritually), so why do we feel that the Holy Spirit would suddenly veer from the Bible and start killing us spiritually? Even if you don’t want to call it “killing,” why would He embarrass, humiliate, and injure Believers who are coming to learn from Him. The reason is because the spirit in operation is not the Holy Spirit but a kundalini spirit.
People want so badly to feel something. The fact that it’s “movement” should be a huge, red flag. Today, people want the Lord to show them “signs”; however, Jesus said that demand comes from a wicked and adulterous generation. We are admonished to be sober and mindful of what’s going on at all times. We are not to empty our minds or stop praying and just wait for a spirit to take over. We are supposed to do everything in decency & in order. People should not be strewn all over the place out of themselves for up to several hours at a time. The Holy Spirit doesn’t move people to behave like animals, cluck & cackle, or disrupt what is supposed to be a holy assembly and lesson. All this carnival activity actually takes the focus from God and puts it onto the person performing because people are seeking the sensation from that person.
Let’s examine some passages used to support this practice:
Num 22:31 – “22 And God’s anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the Lord stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him. 23 And the ass saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way. 24 But the angel of the Lord stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side. 25 And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall: and he smote her again. 26 And the angel of the Lord went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left. 27 And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam’s anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff. 28 And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times? 29 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee. 30 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? and he said, Nay. 31 Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face. 32 And the angel of the Lord said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me: 33 And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive. 34 And Balaam said unto the angel of the Lord, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again. 35 And the angel of the Lord said unto Balaam, Go with the men: but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak.” Num22-35
Balaam was being a disobedient prophet. The donkey’s eyes were opened to see the angel, but Balaam could not discern the problem. When Balaam falls forward on his face, he has thrown himself to the ground in recognition of the angel being sent directly from the LORD and to beg for his life. People don’t beg standing up or lying on their backs convulsing and twitching, and they certainly can’t beg to be spared if they pass out.
2 Chron 5:14 – “13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; 14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.”
“could not stand” – could not continue – “Amad” 5975 – unqualified – The priests ceased from their activity because the pure and holy presence of the Lord had come. As they were already worshiping, they would not pass out and fall backward but would kneel or lie prostrate before the Lord.
Eze 3:23 – “22 And the hand of the Lord was there upon me; and he said unto me, Arise, go forth into the plain, and I will there talk with thee. 23 Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the glory of the Lord stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar: and I fell on my face. 24 Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and spake with me, and said unto me, Go, shut thyself within thine house.” – Eze 3:22-24
Ezekiel is showing reverential fear of the Lord. The first mention of Chebar is in Ezekiel 1 where he says he was among the captives by this river. A vision from the Lord comes, and Ezekiel sees heavenly creatures that have wheels, wings, animal-like parts, four faces including faces of men, which is already a terrifying sight. Then he hears the voice of the Lord from His throne above them. The appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord is enough to send Ezekiel to a worship position on his face. “25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings. 26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. 27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. 28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the LIKENESS of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.” – Eze 1:25-28
Eze 43:2-3 – “1Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east: 2 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory. 3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.”
Ezekiel sees the same creatures he saw from Heaven in chapter 1, and God’s glory has rushed in. Again, Ezekiel goes to a worship position but is completely aware of everything that is happening around him.
Ezekiel 44:4 – “1Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut. 2 Then said the Lord unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the Lord, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut. 3 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the Lord; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same. 4 Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house: and I looked, and, behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord: and I fell upon my face.” Eze 44:1-4
Ezekiel is still being shown incredible things, but at no point does the prophet get cozy with God. At each appearance of God’s glory, Ezekiel shows honor and reverential fear of the Lord. His very Presence demands us recognize Who He is.
Matt 17:6 “1And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. 4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. 6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. 9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.” Matt 17:1-9
Jesus is transfigured on a mountain and is reminiscent of Moses’s countenance shining after being in the presence of God. Two primary figures of the Bible representing the law (Moses) & the prophets (Elijah) appear to Jesus, which indicates that the Lord is with Jesus. The LORD’S voice calls from Heaven (three times audibly during the adult life of Jesus) instructing the disciples to listen because He is greater than all who have come. The disciples have a reverent fear for the Lord Who is demonstrating His control over life, time, and all. They fell on their faces and consciously listened for further instructions. Jesus tells them not to be afraid as He tells John later in Revelation
John 18:6 – “1When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples. 2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples. 3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. 4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? 5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. 6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.” – John 18:1-6
This passage mentions Judas 3 times in 6 verses. By the second mention, we understand Judas is with them. Judas falls backward with the others (Pharisees, band of men, & chief priests) who are coming against Him. They aren’t falling in worship but are falling back under the sound of judgment. They Holy Spirit is NOT on any of these men because the Holy Spirit is the One Who points us to Christ.
Acts 9:3-4 “1And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, 2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. 3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: 4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? 5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. 6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. 7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. 8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.” – Acts 9:1-8
This is Paul BEFORE conversion, so the Holy Spirit is not falling on him to give him “another anointing.” As when Judas Iscariot and company came against Christ and were knocked back in judgment for the desired persecution of Him Who was doing the Lord’s will, Paul and company are knocked back in judgment for coming against Christ (Believers are in Christ & the Body of Christ), which is why He asked why Saul was persecuting HIM and not why Saul was persecuting Believers. The reference of Saul kicking against the pricks means Saul was fighting the direction and instructions the Lord wanted him to have and was causing himself harm in the process of rejecting Jesus. Saul opens his eyes to find himself blind. When the Lord takes away senses in this fashion, it is to get attention because that person has not acknowledged and followed the Lord (ex. Nebuchadnezzar).
Rev 1:17 – “10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” – Rev 1:10-18
The Bible lets us know that the presence of God is powerful, and all who will be in His presence will bow down and worship. John hears the voice, turns and sees the Savior as He will return, and is filled with the fear of the LORD. He doesn’t pass out backward and is completely conscious. Jesus has a task for John, which requires him to remember what happens to write. John can’t observe and remember if he’s unconscious.
At no point do we see the Holy Spirit described as a force/electricity/fire to be flung, thrown, or blown at people. There are no instructions to tap/push people in the forehead or the electric sensors in their cheeks to help them fall over (or assault them by kneeing them). There is not one example of a woman “coming under the power” and falling out, but we see a great number of women seeking this experience.
“2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.” – Jer 10:2
The practice of trying to get people to get in touch with a spirit and feeling was mingled with the Biblical practice of laying on of hands. It taps into an occult practice including trying to line up chakras and opening the third eye (located in the middle of the forehead).

Examples of people under the influence of evil spirits
The boy with a dumb spirit – Luke 9:42 – “42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.”
“17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; 18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not. 19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me. 20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. 21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. 22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. 23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. 24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. 25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. 26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead. 27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.” – Matt 9:17-27
The evil spirit throws the boy around to injure him. The boy rolls around furiously and loses control of his functions such as foaming at the mouth. When the spirit is commanded to depart and leaves, the boy is calm.
Prophets of baal – “26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made. 27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked. 28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them. 29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.” – 1 Kings 18:26-29
The prophets of baal made a big production trying to manufacture the spirit of their god (much like the 4-hour trance music of today’s circus they say is required to “usher in the Spirit of the Lord”), screamed, cried out, and almost killed themselves trying to get a response. The Lord’s Spirit does not require us to mutilate ourselves because we are His workmanship and His temple.
Demon-possessed man – “1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. 2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: 4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. 5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. 6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, 7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. 8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. 9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. 10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. 11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea. 14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. 15 And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.” – Mark 5:1-15
This man had so many devils inside him that he couldn’t even be chained to an area. He lived in a cemetery, cried constantly, and cut himself with stones. When Jesus cast out the demons, they were permitted to go into the pigs nearby, and the entire herd raced “violently” to their deaths. Devils are destroyers. When the people that knew the demoniac saw him (because word spread quickly), he was calm and had all his senses about him. Nowhere does it say the man “fell out under the power” and started erratic behavior.
Is there such a thing as being slain in the Spirit?
Sure, but it’s eternal. It’s called the “second death” and definitely not something anyone should want. We do, however, have examples of being slain BY the Spirit.
Samson killing Philistines by the Spirit of the Lord – “18 And the men of the city said unto him on the seventh day before the sun went down, What is sweeter than honey? And what is stronger than a lion? and he said unto them, If ye had not plowed with my heifer, ye had not found out my riddle. 19 And the Spirit of the Lord came upon him, and he went down to Ashkelon, and slew thirty men of them, and took their spoil, and gave change of garments unto them which expounded the riddle. And his anger was kindled, and he went up to his father’s house.” – Judges 14:18-19
Ananias & Sapphira – “But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, 2 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. 3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. 5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. 6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. 7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. 8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. 9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out. 10 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. 11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.”
When the Holy Spirit slays, it’s permanent! Is that something you really want to pursue?
But…but…I know I felt something, and I’m Christian
Yes, and peer pressure to fall so we’re not seen as missing the blessing, embarrassing the person laying hands, or the power of suggestion will help solidify the experience, especially when you arrive determined to receive an impartation. The problem is that while your intentions may be honorable, the person passing the spirit may not care. We don’t want to voluntarily open ourselves up to be influenced by evil.

– “The concept chakra comes from the yogic traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism. It is said that the body has seven chakras in it. Yoga is the vehicle used to balance the chakras. The main goal of yoga is to awaken Kundalini, or the fiery serpent power that is wrapped around the spinal cord (source). What is serpent power? Isn’t Satan called the Great Serpent? Jordan’s fellow luciferian occultist H.P. Blavatsky states in her book “The Secret Doctrine” that Yahweh isn’t the “One,” and Lucifer is the “One” more superior than Yahweh. She states that the names of Lucifer is known as Dragon of Wisdom, the Dragon, Satan, and The Fiery Serpent (source). Notice that one of the names for Lucifer is Fiery Serpent [dragon]. Also pay attention to the fact that in Yoga the goal is to awaken the kundalini or fiery serpent to obtain divine wisdom /self knowledge. Satan since the garden, is always attempting to get man to obtain knowledge outside of the authority of G-d.” (quote from blog with sources inserted for convenience)
So that you can see and hear how people plan what they’re going to do in advance and the unbiblical practices they use, I am attaching documentaries in which the people were open about their deception during the documentary. So that you can see how luciferians (ministers of satan transforming themselves into angels of light) infiltrate and influence the church, I’m attaching an expose documentary.

To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.” – 2 Peter 3:14-18
