Ephesians 5:18 is another verse commonly taken out of context by Laughing Revival advocates encapsulates Paul’s admonition that we should “not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. They claim however that being drunk in the spirit is God's ordained answer to alcohol...yeah.
Paul urges being filled with the spirit...........not being in a trance or drunken stupor. "Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” are what is read just a few verses beyond.
As for convulsions and falling bacwards while drunk in the spirit the new manifestations of the Spirit that we see today are I feel actually works of the flesh. Gal.5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith................no mention of holy drunkenness. These skits have the Holy Spirit doing what it has never done before starting with Benny Hinn violently pushing people over who resisted his advances. The fact is that feelings, nor experiences are to be a true test to validate the Holy Spirit operates in such manners.
"Symptoms" are the feeling of electricity or heat. The same descriptions are common of occult manifestations as well as Mormonism.The Bible is rather silent on the matter of feelings manifesting from the Holy Spirit.
If you see someone falling fall over in church call 911 or the prayer line. Either way they need your help.................
