  • After reading this, God has truly opened my eyes concerning the place of the Holy Spirit in my life. I attended so many churches in my 30+ years as a Christian I had a lot of confusion. God really used this to give me an answer concerning the healing,prophesy,and tongues movement I have been a part of in the past. I am in a Baptist church now and feel safe from all that but felt something was missing. Now I know that it is a personal thing I need to work on. I was used to a lot of man made excitement and I know those things were not of God although they do fascinate. Blessings to you.
