Its an androgynous being, and when you hear HIS voice it is more masculine sounding, although there is no sex attached... it does seem more respectful than saying "it" anyway.
It is not why I was suddenly healed of the disease I have had since 2000, nor am I simply insane.
But call me what you will.. this isn't about me, its about HIM. HE is real.. you can write it off a million different ways if you like.. but HE is real. No amount of writing any of this off is going to change that fact.

The "public" revelation of God to His Church, in our modern time, comes through Sacred Scripture and our Traditions. This is the "deposit of faith" that Christians take as their norms, customs and beliefs. (see 2Tm 1:13,14)
However, Gideon, and many other biblical folks acted upon "private" revelations, often in dreams and visions. It happens. These are not directly entered into the deposit of faith though as not all private revelation comes from God, and other Christians are cautioned to take such revelations with keen discernment. We expect no new "public" revelation until Christ returns.
We must firmly reject ANY private revelation that offers "a different Gospel" (Gal 1:6-9), that claims to correct or ad to the deposit of faith. These are very serious, strong words. I don't get too far into many "revelations" I hear or read, before tuning it out.
The testimony of OpinionatedB blew me away. I was astonished. OpinionatedB would have to spend countless hours of bible study, semesters of course study, even advanced Catholic philosophy and theology to fire off what she said, and in the manner which she described it. I poured over it for scriptural discrepancy and found none. I won't mention names, but there's some very knowledgable, intentional disciples of Jesus Christ here, and I think they agree with me.
My Spirit is telling me this a true "private" revelation from God. I was blessed to have come across your witness testimony. The conversion of so many Muslims through a personal encounter with Jesus, just, it...well, I can't describe it. I can't stop thinking about it. Praise The Lord!
I'm cloaked, yoked and stoked. Thank you. Thank you Jesus.
