Tarrying For the Holy Ghost
« on: April 24, 2006, 03:52:56 PM »
Let me first start by saying, I am not looking for comments from people that want to debate wether or not if one should or should not Tarry.  I'm not in the business for arguing over the method of the way one receives the Holy Ghost, I feel that our main focus should be that they receive the true Gift of the Holy Ghost and not a familiar spirit.

With that out of the way, my question, how many of you have received the Holy Ghost this way and does your church still tarry?

Of course growing up in the "sanctified" church, we grew up on tarrying. We would have "tarry service" every Friday night, so I know all about tarrying, and the mothers would make us stay there at the altar until we were about ready to pass out!! :D My current church does not tarry. Not necessarily because we don't believe in it per se, but people need to be taught the Word and really understand what it is they are seeking.

I understand what you are saying.  I grew up in a church that tarried for the Holy Ghost and still does.  This is the way that I received the Holy Ghost.  We know that on the day of pentecost, that the Holy Ghost came in it's fullness.  We believe in praising the Lord throught the Hallelujah's, (some call on Jesus)  until he fills the individual with the Holy Ghost.

It is a wonderful and experience and I was wanting to see how many others have had that same experiens as of receiving the Holy Ghost this way.

We sometimes still have tarrying service and have had it since like, the late 80's. The only thing that I can say has changed is the fact that no one is pressured to tarry(particularly young folks like me, whose parents made them tarry). Now it is just explained to the young folks and they have to make the decision to tarry. It kinda defeats the purpose of tarrying if a person isnt ready to fully give their life to God.

However, people at my church tarry when the spirit moves. For example, a young lady got the holy ghost during testimony service.  The spirit was moving and all the shouting music was playing. We noticed her rocking back and forth in her seat, crying. Then, some of the older sisters of the church got around her and had her start tarrying and before you knew it, she was speaking. So, if you are ever in service and the spirit hits you, you can start tarrying in your seat and you just might speak.....But remember to use wisdom when in service. ;)

I grew up going to tarry services as well, but when I was seeking for the Holy Ghost in my early twenties, it was quickly becoming a thing of the past.  I thank God for my Bishop's wife who saw some of us seeking for the baptism of the Holy Ghost and began to have tarry services with us. I actually wasn't in a tarry service when I received the Holy Ghost, though.

Can someone explain what tarry service is?  Below are definitions for tarry.  I don't understand what it means to tarry at the altar.  Do you just stay up there until you speak in tongues?  Does this work?

The reason for tarrying often is for the individual to get to a state of true repentance. The Bible says to repent and be ye baptised and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. When one tarries, it is to come Godly sorry for things that maybe we haven't given up such as smoking, drinking, etc. So in that sense, the definitions are correct. We are waiting on God to give us the stamp of approval that we have maintained that good conscience toward God. It is a temporary state from just being saved meaning not guilty of sin through repentance to being filled with the Holy Ghost which gives us the power to refrain from sin.
I hope this kinda helps you understand a little or at least makes you think more. God Bless

Oh yeah, to answer the topic question. I tarried and my church still does. We don't have tarrying service persay, but when we meet for prayer that is when go before God. I do believe it works and is sometimes necessary (read my post above). I received the Holy Ghost in my dorm room while praying. I had finally made up my mind that I was going to give up everything for God and to God. And just as sure as my name is what it is, He filled me.

And to add to what Vangelist said, the word tarry I think comes from when Jesus instructed the disciples to go to the upper room and wait for the baptism of the Holy Ghost.  It's kind of a waiting period, because until you receive the Holy Ghost you are not fully equipped to go out and do the work of the ministry.

 Ithink its important to wait on god period...i know some churches where the holy ghost will start movin but becuz they have a program they just keep goin and grieve the spirit....our 8 am servie that supposed to end at 10:15 ended an hour late! Because we allowed the holy ghost to move.. tarrying to me simply means allowingthe holy ghost to move....alot of churches stick to programs and u notice those churches dont experience anything bcause they dont allow God to be God....just my thoughts..love yall..

BISHOP I WAS FILLED ON A MONDAY NIGHT AT THE ALTAR ALSO. WHEN I TARRIED, MY TARRYING WAS NOT JUST AT THE ALTAR. I BELIEVE WHEN YOU'RE WAITIN FOR SOMETHING OR SOMEONE THEN YOU MUST ALSO PREPARE FOR IT/THEM ALSO. WELL I FASTED,PRAYED,AND CRIED MANY DAYS B/C I WANTED TO BE FILLED AND THEN I RECIEVED HIM.
Let me first start by saying, I am not looking for comments from people that want to debate wether or not if one should or should not Tarry.  I'm not in the business for arguing over the method of the way one receives the Holy Ghost, I feel that our main focus should be that they receive the true Gift of the Holy Ghost and not a familiar spirit.

With that out of the way, my question, how many of you have received the Holy Ghost this way and does your church still tarry?

I DON'T LIKE DEBATES OF GOD'S WORD EITHER AND YES MY CHURCH STILL TARRY BUT NOT LIKE THEY USE TO WHEN THEY STAYED ON US "YOUNG FOLKS" TO BE FILLED. I WISH WE (ALL CHURCHES) STILL TARRIED AND PRAISE GOD LIKE WE USE TO BEFORE WE GOT SPOILED. WE WERE SO COMMITTED THEN :)
FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.

I think it depends on the person.  The churches I grew up in tarried, but not always.  Some folks received the Holy Ghost in a second or two...or in their seats...or after or before getting baptized while in the baptism pool.  I was one to always wish I was knocked out with it....but that wasn't and has never been the case.  Maybe some saints wanted it more than others or went to the altar already expecting and waiting to receive.  Others may sometimes go to the altar, but not have faith, not fully be repentent, etc.  I wouldn't say tarrying is mandatory, but I've seen too many people receive the HolyGhost by tarrying/working with altar workers to say anything negative about it.
