In the Spirit

  • But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying *in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Jude 20, 21 NKJV
  • I was *in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet Rev 1:10 NASB
  • After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. Rev 4:1,2 NKJV
  • And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God Rev 21:10 NKJV
