"And, the Bible also warns us that Satan and his demons can appear to us as angels of light.
As a result, you will need proper discernment from the Holy Spirit if an angel were to ever appear to you."
~Ponder this carefully! )
"You have touched upon a daunting subject that holds the key of God's inspiration,
within ones own self, and, not to mention the implication put forth, pertaining to
the 'spiritual realm' depicted in the Bible...it has to be lived, and even then, no explanation
is possible that would give full merit to the source of ones spiritual faith."
not really "touched on a subject" it is the goal of every Christian to be conformed to the image of Christ, it is every day Christianity as modeled by Jesus, who showed us how we were all to grow into and live.
There is no longer a temple the veil was ripped there is no earthly holy ground anymore, we can go right up mount Sinai and not die. The concept of earty holy ground is idolatry. Holy Ground is the Body of Christ. We who enter Christ have entered the Holy.
I do not understand why we who have escaped the law of sin and death want to turn to the very law that made it sinful. We have Christ and his body and blood as a temple but want to return to the a temple made by hands. Why we who are circumcised in the heart by the circumcision not made by hands desire the circumcision of the flesh made by human hands. Why we who have rest from the slave master of sin and death seek to have only one day to rest as if we are still under the task master. We still say to pharaoh give us a day to go and worship. We are no longer under pharaoh.
Would you be willing to summarize the video? I'm pretty careful with what I watch and since I think that it is the Lord's timing that is critical to one's eyes being opened I'm disinclined to want to watch something discussing the subject.
There are people I've heard speak about the subject that basically decided they wanted to and I can't say they are "wrong" just that there are different ways to go about it. Elisha was "given" sight and the other prophets had the word of the Lord revealed to them when they saw visions. It makes sense to wait on him.
Oh, I do have a thought though in regards to what seems like a disagreement between you fellas. I was considering that indeed the veil was rent in two but what were the requisites for entering the most holy place prior to this and do these factor in? I am not suggesting that the veil being rent was not a critical revelation, but it seems that the reason and common understanding differ between believers enough to engage it further.
About Gary Oates .
- His testimony / story is on video clip.. #1 post.
- I heard his story / experience in conference..some years ago.
He wrote a book about ' spiritual experience, spiritual realm..etc. '
- Title of the book.
' Open My Eyes, Lord. '
We were always meant to experience G-d, from the beginning we would spend the day "tending the garden" and He would come in the cool of the evening and fellowship with man. This relationship was visited on those the Lord chose for His purpose in the Old Testament, now with Christ indwelling the believer we are capable of living the life Christ modeled for us to live.
Thank you for the tip on the book, Experiencing God by Henry T. Blackaby and Claude V. King was a great on for me, used it in a study a few decades ago, went through the new- 70% bigger version in a study a little while ago and was able to see how nearly every page shared a way He has actively manifested Himself to myself and others I know.
