I have run into many false teachers in the Word of Faith, Pentecostal and New Apostolic Reformation that practice or teach this satanic way called slain or drunk in the spirit. They claim the spirit of God moves and knocks you out in a slain/drunken way. If it is of God it should be modeled in the Holy Word correct? Lets explore this in scripture and see if it of God's spirit or of the enemy satan who imitates God with various false ways.
Here is a picture of a man "so called" drunk in the spirit
First, I know these men/places are NOT of God as they have left the sound biblical gospel and His NT ways. They are not teaching a true gospel, they are worldly, not holy and not in sound doctrine. See these links to prove that:
If we go to scripture in the Old Testament, do we ever see God's spirit making men drunk in a good way? No, not even once!
With 59 references to drunk or drunkeness in the OT; not 1 verse shows anyone drunk by God's spirit. The verses are about drunk as in they drank something or most often it is speaking negative about those who get drunk!
For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags. Proverbs 21:23
Lets move to the New Testament when God's spirit came to dwell in His people. Does it ever teach about a drunk in the spirit way?
In fact; in 18 uses of the word drunk in the NT scriptures; not 1 verse even suggests men were falling over drunk in God's spirit. It talks of drinking something and often it warns against getting drunk. When in awe/fear of God and in His light; some men fell down or backwards but it was NOT in a drunken knocked out state but only a reaction to God's power up close.
The ONLY one single verse they can twist and use to build their heretical demonic drunk in the spirit ways is from Acts 2:
The mockers called them drunk and why? Were they on the floor, drunk and knocked out by Gods power? No, not at all. The Word says they were speaking in different languages and it sounded like gibberish to the mocking people there and that is why they said they were drunk. Ever hear a drunk stumble all over his words as he slurs them? It has NOTHING to do with laying on the floor or acting drunk in the spirit at all it was their words only.
All over the NT word we are told to be SOBER and Brother Apostle Paul warns against drunk-ness leading to HELL, not heaven:
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Gal 5:21
The truth is that satan is the enemy and he likes to twist God's Word. (see his ways in the garden in Genesis 3 and on the mountain with Jesus in Matt 4) He also likes to mock God by counterfeit the Fathers ways as he wanted to be like God in great pride; thus his fall!
"Let me offer to you that this slain/drunk in the spirit way is NOT of God but; it is of satan and his false spirits".
*Jesus warns of false signs and wonders in the last days to deceive many; go see Matthew 24
I have researched and found that satan uses the very same way with occult Hindu guru's. They touch peoples foreheads and they fall into nirvana (trance like state because of a serpent spirit in their spines they claim) See that proven here with links to videos in my article on slain in the spirit exposed:
The joy or drunken holy ghost laughter has come on strong in heretical false groups of the word of Faith and NAR of the last few decades. Go here to see a demonic NAR man who uses that, laughter and occult ways also so called of God. See him in strange video clips and if you are of God, your skin may crawl:
This false way is so far spread and over taking so many. I prove it here with this false man who claims the power to do slain or drunk in the spirit ways. He had claimed on his website that the Acts 2 saints were "laying on the floor". I called him out on the internet and it took him 4 months to even change his website but; in deception he never publically repented of that lie! See it all proved here on his testing:
As we test out these false slain/drunked in the spirit ways it is clear that it is NOT of God. It is a heretical, emotional, false signs and wonder satanic tool of the enemy satan to deceive and damn millions of souls. And they will be judged over it as they embrace it. Why? It pleases their flesh vs denying yourself to walk in the spirit and truth of God.
Please be warned! Repent and walk in soberness, striving to cling to God's Word and ways in all things.
