I found a page comparing Christianity and Hinduism ...
To become carriers, shippers, His presence or His glory. Moses had to have an encounter with the fire to get three million people out of Egypt. You need someone that is on fire to free others from slavery. The encounter with the presence of God leads you to be a liberator. There are people trying to help others without experience.
The Presence: Shekinah Glory
Every time I talk about “Shekinah Glory” there are manifestations that can be physical, natural and visible. In Hebrew, kabod is the intrinsic nature of what God is and is revealed in His names and His ways. It's about His character and His nature. The manifested presence of God cannot be manufactured, fabricated, created, provoked, agitated or stirred up. You have it or you don’t.
Kabod is His nature and all God is. He decides what to display. Only one thing I can do with His presence, attract it.
What is the glory of God?
• The glory of God is the realm of eternity. Eternity is timeless. The glory does not operate in time.
• The glory of God is revealed eternity.
• It is the infinity without limits or restrictions.
• It is the realm that exists beyond human imagination, beyond the faith of a man and his anointing.
• It is the manifestation or demonstration of God himself.
• It is the manifested presence of God.
• It is the sovereignty of God in manifestation. The sovereignty of God is when God does what He wants, like He wants, when He wants and with whom He wants.
• A demonstration of the sovereignty of God and His will.
Substitutes for the Presence of God
Those who have lost God's presence try to manufacture it with substitutes. That kabod cannot come by emotions or by movement of a man. It only comes through revelation. The glory of God cannot be studied with the mind as we study medicine. Natural instruments cannot understand the glory, it must be revealed.
In the presence of God, natural laws are suspended. Why? In the glory, matter is not important. The weight of the words we speak come from the source from which they originate. If he speaks from a position of glory, they will cross the heart and transform people.

Holy spirit, angels, demons, aliens, soul, and all that Jazz.
Due to a conversation I was having on another topic I would love to hear what members believe these things really are.
Angels, demons, and fallen angels were flesh-and-blood members of a giant race predating humanity, spoken of in the Bible as the Nephilim your book states. Please tell us more information about this.
Andrew Collins: Bible scholars are convinced that the book of Enoch, and other similar such “Enochian” literature, derive from a few brief lines in Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament. Chapter 6 speaks of how the Elohim (or “Sons of God)”, an alternative name for the Watchers, came upon the “daughters of men” and, finding them fair, laid with them to produce Nephilim, which in most forms of the Bible is translated as “giants”:
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown (Gen. 6:4).
