Holy spirit and tingling sensations.

Has anyone ever experienced after conversion, prayer time or spirit baptism a sensation of tingling in fingers or hands? Have you ever felt burning in palms or conscious of something like electric currents in your body?

After conversion of what?
Yes the Holy Spirit can move in many different ways. All you listed above can be some of the effect of the power of the Holy Spirit. Even many more unexplainable great feelings.

Definitely, that is the baptism of the Holy Spirit by the Lord. When it happens and Holy Spirit comes upon His children, there has to be some feelings in the body. Holy Spirit is a person. He is HOLY.
The presence of the LORD causes very very amazing feeling too. Just indescribable

I always crave it. Our Father knows, HE just likes to make sure we dont get too addicted so that we can always trust that when we don't feel it, He is still there, and is always there

All the time, the spirit lives in you. Its a feeling, pray more for it.

There are days the spirit is so strong in me, I feel like I am walking on cushings.

I am not talking from a abstract/methaphore basis, I feel this literaly; VERY STRONG.


True Evanglists actually lives on this, that this the only thing that keep them motivated. And sometimes even sane, when they are in horrible situations.

It gives us strength, it gives us peace, it gives us wisdome, it gives us lessons etc..


My advice is, hunger for this feeling. Pray you feel it more and stronger.
This is a grace of god, Jesus died for it. Jesus want us to walk with the spirit!

I have experienced this quickening of the Spirit many, many times throughout my walk with Jesus. It is wonderful, fulfilling and satisfying.

However, I do not agree that you should hunger for this feeling. Your hunger should be for God and His Righteousness. I do agree that it is easy to become addicted to the experience of God, rather than God Himself. This is very dangerous, because the feelings come an go. If you are dependent upon the feelings for your faith, you are building your walk on shifting sand.

Enjoy those moments thoroughly! But know that it is not the feeling that you are to strive for, it is the face of God.

You should be wary of such manefestations, simply because they are strange or fascinating does not mean it was a genuine touch of the Holy Spirit.

The gifts of the Holy Spirit always empart power from God to do something, whether that is prophecy, or slaying enemies, or healing, or preaching in new languages, the effects of the spirit are not simply for a cool sensation.

Certainly peace and love and joy are the fruits of the spirit, but these are not tangible, they are the effects on someones overall life, they are not simply tingling feelings of pleasure or excitement.

If you go home from these "experiences" and you feel no different asside from the fact that you had this memory of the experience, you have not experienced the Spirit's power. If you did, you would feel lasting change.

I have gone to meetings and had similar experiences as the one you described and come away with bewilderment afterward. Bewilderment is not from the Lord.

I have also seen friends affected by much stronger experiences, and become unconscious and have cold hands and feet. The fruit of this experience turned out to be that they fell away from the Lord soon after. I concluded it was not the HS, but in fact a false sign.

Beware of false prophets performing fake signs and wonders. THe Bible warns of these things and we are to be watchful for it. Do your own research and look into these things and you will find out that there is a countefeit for almost everything. Especially beware of people who are twitching and convulsing in the spirit, if they do nothing to proclaim the truth of Jesus when this happens, it is certainly fake. It is also possible to have both fake signs and false prophecy together as well.

Predestination has to do with the fact that ALL OF US WERE SINNERS PREDESTINED TO HELL. He chose in his patience and kindness to grant faith to some that they might be saved by his power, the rest are condemned by their own sin.

OP, you will know when the feeling of the holy Spiri comes, It cant be counterfeited.

Also to the pure, all things are pure.

The Lord can allow whoever He wishes to experience His powerful presence. And when the Holy Spirit is working in someone's body or life at that point, the feelings does come.

Don';t let fear come into your heart and life by what someone else says when you should simply trust God. Look to Him and simply trust Him.

Isn't this feeling part of god and the gift we as Christians are able to enjoy. We give up sinful activities and delight in things like this instead.
