I explain why I took down my last video, "My Chat with Saint Blissful." Sorry Erik, but after some research and discernment, these are my conclusions. No offense to you.
In this video, I am NOT saying that the POWER or PRESENCE of God is to be reduced or downplayed... There is nothing more intoxicating than basking in the glory of God's presence HOWEVER, I draw the line at screaming, yelling, uncontrollable and involuntary convulsions of the body, obnoxious and ceaseless laughing, making strange animal-like sounds and noises and overall running around like a chicken with its head cut off!! I DO NOT believe this is the HOLY SPIRIT or the MOVE OF GOD at all... Holy Spirit would not make God's children look like fools or make them be out of their minds... God gave us a spirit of sober and sound mind and I certainly cannot imagine our Lord Yeshua OR his disciples behaving in this way even as THEY were filled with the Holy Spirit.
Another thing, it is easy for people to think they MUST have some kind of physical manifestation in order to feel they are being touched by God... I fell into this trap myself... it is dangerous and I wanted to set the record straight... We can tell someone has been touched by God by the repentance of their sins, transformation of their spirit and character, the fruit that they bear in the lives and the light of the Lord's spirit which shines from within for all to see.... Convulsions and twitches of the body does NOT mean you are more spiritual or that you need to have these in order to be touched by God... It is not deeper spirituality.
There are some scriptures that REFER to this but I see that they are being taken WAY WAY WAY out of context... For example, Ephesians 5:18 says:
"And be not drunk with wine, where-in is EXCESS; but be filled with the Spirit."
This verse is NOT saying to be DRUNK in the Spirit... it points to being filled up with the Spirit SO THAT you are NOT in an intoxicated state of drunkenness. It is pointing AWAY from drunkenness, away from it. It is NOT saying to REPLACE that drunkenness with the Spirit! How in the world can you be a new creation in Christ if you are still seeking to submit to your flesh by desiring a drunken and intoxicated state of being? Being "drunk" in the Holy Spirit is nothing short of BLASPHEMY. Holy Spirit is NOT a drunkard. God's people are SET APART from this foolishness.
Be STILL and Know that I AM GOD.
It is in the STILLNESS that we can experience God... not in uncontrolled, out of your mind chaos of being "drunk" in the spirit.
9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
-2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

I just want to remind everyone that while this concept of being drunk seems great because there are people who have been delivered and truly touched by God, amidst this positive phenomena, there is a certain satanic mockery of God's people... We must remember, that we are representing God and we cannot afford to look like fools.
