#29 – Ecstasy in Prayer (Ecstatic Experiences)


So we’re talking about experience, and we
talked about how, experience is not necessarily an outward, tangible thing; it’s an inward
thing. But it often overflows into an outward, tangible
thing. Which leads me to this question: talk to me
about ecstatic experiences. I know this is sort of a different level,
but — Right.
Well, I asked an old nun one time if she experiences ecstasy in prayer, and her answer
was amazing. She said, “These things are only for the faithful.”
And I think she nailed something on the head when she said that.
These raptures, delight type of experiences I have not seen then happen to people who
were inconsistent. I’ve seen them happen to two types of people,
or people who do two things: number one, they’re faithful in prayer; and number two: they are
resigned to just being with Him for extended periods of time.
I’ve had many ecstatic experiences and most of them happened after six to eight hours
of just straight being with Jesus. like I — like I’ve told you, I’ve done
extended times and every single one of them He met me in a way that was unexplainable. And they were very ecstatic. very — beyond anything that could ever
be communicated. They are incommunicable, to the core.
They — they bliss — even the body gets blissed to the point where, they’re like electric
currents of bliss going through your being. And, everything changes.
Why do you think that happens, what is that? I think He’s coming close.
You know exactly what I’m talking about. When He comes really close we can’t take it.
Our physical bodies are unable — they’re not fit for glory.
In other words they’re not ready for the Lord. That’s why we get a new one so that we can
be around Him. You know, the way that He desires us to be.
You know, so when He gets real close — you remember in Brownsville, you know, and even
in your meetings now some people will get around you, and the glory of God is so strong
on you they can’t stand up. They fall down; they shake.
It’s because the glory of God is so strong that the physical body, the muscles and sinews,
everything, it responds, to the glory of the Lord.
And is this something that you think every Christian can experience, or this for — I
mean I know it’s for the faithful but for anyone?
Yes, anyone who will seek Him, or find Him. And this is part of finding Him.
It’s part of seeing Him, it’s part of beholding the glory of God, which is, by the way, the
only way to be transformed into the image of Jesus, according to the scriptures.

  1. Thank you for sharing this video. I long and thirst for that kind of experience with the Lord. God continue to us you.

  2. more unnecessary unbiblical mystical elitist Christianity. 

    See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ. 9 For in Him all the fullness of Deity (the Godhead) dwells in bodily form [completely expressing the divine essence of God]. 10 And in Him you have been made complete [achieving spiritual stature through Christ], and He is the head over all rule and authority [of every angelic and earthly power]. Colossians 2:8-10 AMP

    Let no one defraud you by acting as an umpire and declaring you unworthy and disqualifying you for the prize, insisting on self-abasement (asceticism, extreme self-denial) and worship of angels, taking his stand on visions [he claims] he has seen, vainly puffed up by his sensuous notions and inflated by his unspiritual thoughts and fleshly conceit, And not holding fast to the Head, from Whom the entire body, supplied and knit together by means of its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God. If then you have died with Christ to material ways of looking at things and have escaped from the world's crude and elemental notions and teachings of externalism, why do you live as if you still belong to the world? [Why do you submit to rules and regulations?–such as] Do not handle [this], Do not taste [that], Do not even touch [them], Referring to things all of which perish with being used. To do this is to follow human precepts and doctrines. [Isa. 29:13.] Such [practices] have indeed the outward appearance [that popularly passes] for wisdom, in promoting self-imposed rigor of devotion and delight in self-humiliation and severity of discipline of the body, but they are of no value in checking the indulgence of the flesh (the lower nature). [Instead, they do not honor God but serve only to indulge the flesh.]
    Colossians 2:18-23 AMP

  3. People tend to criticize what they really don't understand. I have experienced the ecstasy of God while I was in deep prayer. It is truly amazing and our mere human words, minds and expressions cannot begin to comprehend it. For me it was a feeling of being elevated literally. God is so awesome ! If you have not experienced the Glory of God then this will sound foolish to you because the analytical mind will discard it as nonsense. God uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.

  4. When I worship God, with music and singing and prayer it is heaven. Even in my car, my office, at home cleaning…all of a sudden, I just stop. I can feel the spirit of God in me, throughout me. At those moments I can hear Him, feel Him, speak with Him. I would give my life at that moment to be with Him. Heaven on earth. It is in those moments I remember I am in exile from my real home. In those moments I am filled, saturated by His all encompassing love. Pure love. Jesus. Those moments simultaneously make life here both excruciating and bearable.

  5. I was praying before asking for forgiveness. It was not a lengthy prayer at all. I reached my hands up, I told him I didn't like feeling alone, I had a very intense moment of clarity …then at the moment my hands were up. I sudden, unexpected strong surge of energy passed through my body and I started laughing and smiling because, the feeling was pure elation….

  6. For those that seek Him in spirit and in truth be separate from the world and live for our Lord Jesus Christ and you’ll see His Glory.

  7. I’ve experience this it’s Erotic different visions sent to my minds eye I’m transported to places of pure pleasure I feel cleansed while in these erotic states
