Ask Phillip - Slaying in the Spirit?

What do you make of 'slaying in the Spirit'? "The Spirit gives life rather than death." Phillip Jensen says that in the Bible people do fall on their faces, as if dead, before the holiness of God, but that he doesn't read anything in the Bible about 'slaying in the Spirit.' The only reference that comes close is Acts 5 where Ananias and Sapphira were slain, and that this slaying was permeant.
