Powers of Arabic Holymen

Arabic Mysticism and the Pentecostal Experience

Unlike the modern, material world, Ishamelites (Arabs and Muislims) believe in a Spirit World. For, the Great God, Who is God, is a Supernatural Being. And, HE becomes HIS People to come and join HIM in this Spirit World after their death.

Consequently, Arabic Literature is full of supernatural events and interaction of spirits. We find stories not only of angles, but also of flying carpets, magic lamps, and genies. And, indeed, many of this seem to slide into the world of Satan and his evil gins. Yet, we would NOT have you go there. So, this article is NOT about them. But, we warn you of them, in contrast to the Great Gift of God that you will find, coming, below!

For, as we review the stories of the Prophets, in the Koran or Q'uron, the Jewish Tanach, and the Christian Bible, we find that these Arabic Holymen had Spiritual Powers, indeed! Miraculous healings were quite common at their hands. And supernatural works of great wonder we down by them. Which only leads us to a very practical question: how did they do it? Was it magic? Slight of hand? Science?


No, it was not Science! Rather, Arabic Holy Men have long known that an encounter with God's Spirit was the proper way into the Spirit World. And the correct means by which Prophets of God got their power. This process is very dramatically demonstrated in the life of King Saul. When Samuel anointed Saul and prayed for him, the Spirit of God came upon him and enabled him to be King of Israel (I Samuel 10:1-26). However, when the Spirit of God depart and fled from Saul, he became incapable of doing almost anything (I Samuel 16:14-15), and died a very miserable death! Thus, as Nadab and Abihu also discovered, there is a proper way to approach God--and an improper way, that can lead to death (Numbers 22:61).

Nor is God's Spirit containable, as if we could hold a monopoly on it or form an elitist club around it. Rather, God seeks to have ALL of HIS Follwers get a touch of HIS Spirit (Exodus 11:24-29; II Chronicles 18:22-24). And HIS Spirit will Fall upon whom HE chooses.


However, in Ancient Times, it was a rarity for God's Spirit to come upon a man (or a woman). For, God seemed to keep HIS distance from Mankind. Yet, the Prophets looked forward to the Day when God's Spirit would be poured out in great measure upon HIS People (Isaiah 44:3; Ezekiel 36:26-27; Joel 2:28-29; Luke 24:49). For this was God's Promise!

So, why was it so rare?


Well, that was what the Maqdih or Great Redeemer was all about! As you should have learned in the previous Article (on the Maqdid or Messiah), Mankind was simply too sinful for God to have much to do with! (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Isaiah 59:2) And this was the main role of the Maqdid or Messiah in HIS First Coming--that the sacrifice of HIS perfect life would act as an atonement of payment for our sins (as our death by proxy)! And, indeed, that is the GOOD NEWS!

But, even more than that, those who will confess their Belief in the Maqdih or Messiah, and ask God's Spirit into their heart, will receive the indwelling. That is, the Spirit of God will move into their heart and take up residence there (John 14:23, 17:21, as we might live in a portable tent--a Temple of Flesh (I Corinthians 6:19). The potential for the Outpouring has now come!


While Isse (or Jesus) was here on earth, there was no question that HE did extensive miracles. However, it was not HIS intention to keep a monopoly on miralces! Rather, HE wanted to grant that power to HIS Followers. For, it is clearly written:
"Truly, truly I (Jesus) say unto you: He who Believes in ME, the works (miracles) that I have done, he shall do also! And greater (more widespread) works than these shall he do, because I go to MY Father." (John 14:12)

Moreover, HE goes into great details on exactly what HE will empower HIS Followrs to do:
"And these signs shall follow (or be among) those who Believe (in ME): In MY Name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new (or unknown) Tongues; They shall take up (master) serpents (beasts); And if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." (Mark 16:17-18)

Furthermore, this POWER is not just to sit inside your Temple and be dormant or asleep (as some in the Religious Establishment would like to have you think). Rather, the Holy Ghost wants to be alive and awake--and working through you, if you really Believe! For, the Maqdih or Messiah described it this way:
"He that Believes on ME (Jesus), as the Scriptures have said, out of his belly (inner being) shall flow rivers of living (spiritual) water!" (John 7:38)

So, how do you get this Outpouring? Well, actually, there are a variety of ways. (And you may want to turn to some of our other Articles on Engiftment to find them all.) But let us concentrate here on the most simple and easiest. For, the one that you can pursue right now is PRAYER. Yes, we can pray together right now, and see if God will not fill you to over flowing. Join with us and say the following prayer out loud (so that God will know that you agree with it).
Father God, I claim YOUR Promise to me, according to Luke 11:9-13, which says that if we ask of you the Holy Ghost that you will freely give it to us--and not give us something else as a sibstitute that is bad for us.

I profess that I believe in YOUR Son, Isse (or Jesus), who died on that Tree (or Cross), shedding HIS Blood to pay for my sins--as my death by proxy (and I thank you for Him).

I now renouce the Satan, his followers, and all of their wicked ways and command them, in Jesus' Name, to be gone from my life!

Instead, Heavenly Father, send YOUR precious Holy Ghost into my heart and life--to lead me and guide me in following the Ways that are pleasing to YOU.

And especially, I pray that you will Pour Out of YOUR Spirit upon me and give me the Baptism of the Holy Ghost--and Manifest some of YOUR Gifts in my Life, that I might use them to help others to YOUR Glory.

Now, that is a start. Perhaps you will get the Outpouring NOW? Then, again, it may come later. Perhaps you will need to pray again? (And, again?) Many do. And, it also helps to listen to some Spirit-filled music while you are praying for the Baptism of the Holy Ghost (I Samuel 10:5-6). In fact, in the old fashioned Tarrying Meetings, they would pray for awhile and then sing inspirational songs for awhile, on into the night, untill the Spirit of God would fall on them (Luke 24:49). Perhaps that is what you will need to do, too? For, people are individuals. And how they got the Outpouring is often different from each other. The important thing is that you try. And, that you keep trying untill you get it. [Literature Shield]


No, this is not the end, it is just a beginning. Like any new born babe, you have a lot of growing and learning to do! And, to find out a lot more about your New Parent--GOD. For you are not just chosen, like a servant or slave. You have become part of HIS Family! You are not just a friend of God. Now you are HIS Family. So, turn to the next lesson, and take you next step in Spiritual Growth.
