It has been a while since I have listened to you, but I started back tonight and I really wanted to share something with you.
So I had to really scroll back down in my emails to find this email, but I knew I had kept it. I just wanted to let you know just in case it would be of any encouragement to you. I wanted to tell you the gracious and loving way you answered my question was great. And planted a great seed. I don’t think it’s on this email but it was about if you have to speak in tongues for salvation. Anyways since then me and my husband both have, and he was a complete non believer in speaking in tongues. We both received the baptism of the HolyGhost shortly after we got married. That seed you planted, I’m ever so grateful.On another note if you don’t mind can I pick your brain for a minute and ask you a few short questions? I respect your teaching and have listened to literally hours and hours of your stuff. And bought your book on the rapture. I’m in a booth all day with my head phones, lol! But I was wondering your view of the old school Apostolic Pentecostal denomination? And I was wondering what you thought about their beliefs? For me I do believe in baptizing in Jesus name and the oneness of God! I don’t believe in the trinity. But I don’t grasp the no make up, no facial hair, and the really strict standards they have. Of course we should be Christ like but I just need your view on it please if you could be so kind. Thank you so much and God bless.Taylor Cordova
What wonderful news! I am so happy to hear your testimony, it is reports like this that absolutely bring me encouragement and let me know my work is not in vain. God bless you and your husband and continue to step out in your new found freedom in the Person of the Holy Spirit!
In answer to your question, the love and freedom that you have experienced through your baptism in the Spirit is evident in the fruit that comes with His presence and ministry in your life and anything that counters that (legalism, bondage, rules and regulations, focus on outward appearances of righteousness, no makeup,etc.) will clash with the vibrant love affair you will begin to experience with Christ through the Holy Spirit. As He said, judge the tree by its fruit. Is it bringing you closer to Christ and His love and acceptance or piling on you false condemnation and confusion? “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ, who walk not after the flesh (outward religious rules and regulations) but after the Spirit (His Person, Presence and love). Romans 8:1
As far as the Trinity, I recommend that you study my books “The Sinner’s Prayer Gospel” and “Who are the Aliens?” for an in depth teaching on this subject. Bear in mind, it will be very difficult for you to develop a deep and intimate relationship with the Person of the Holy Spirit if you don’t believe He exists and would be quite ironic, as He has now taken up residence within your vessel. Keep listening, keep studying and nurture your fellowship with the Blessed Comforter, He will lead you into all truth (John 14-16). Blessings,
