I was flying home on Saturday April 25 after attending the funeral of my Father’s wife. Sitting on the plane waiting for takeoff I decided to listen to a replay of a webinar offered by Christian Experts Academy. The host of the webinar was Steve Kasyanenko who with Tamara Lowe is one of the founders of Christian Experts Academy.
The webinar started and Steve was listening to either a message or worship music. I’m not sure but something happened. Steve was overcome in Holy Spirit. It was a wave that came over him and Steve was drunk in the Spirit. So I’m watching this and Holy Spirit came over me and I was drunk sitting on the plane! You may want to know how I knew that I was drunk. When I was younger I drank socially but I could never drink without getting high. I would drink wine coolers and get toasted because I had no tolerance for alcohol. That same feeling came over me on the plane. But is was much more because it wasn’t wine coolers getting me drunk I was drunk in Holy Spirit!
I was experiencing Pentecost on that plane. In Acts 2;13 some of the people who witnessed the phenomenon of Pentecost said, “They are full of new wine.” Peter replied, “These are not drunk (not naturally) since it is only the third hour of the day.”
I felt that on the plane. My body was literally intoxicated in Holy Spirit and it remained for hours. When I arrived at the airport I was walking like a drunk man through the concourse. I had to watch my steps as I got on the escalator. I’ve never Holy Spirit in this way. New wine was filling my body!
I know that this encounter is a sign for the season of Pentecost. Holy Spirit is pouring new wine into the Body. This new wine is bringing a joy to the Body of Christ. It is a new movement of healing in the Body of Christ. It will be manifested in different behaviors among God’s people.It will look like a natural expression of drunkenness like it did at Pentecost but it will be something more than alcohol can give.
There was an anointing on Steve to pray for the sick as he was overtaken. That anointing is being poured out on the body in this season of Pentecost. Holy Spirit is pouring a new wine into the body and we will speak words that will release healing in people.
Have you experienced Holy Spirit in this way in this season? Please share your testimony. God is truly doing a new thing in the earth and in His people. HALLELUJAH!!
