Frankly though they are not too forthcoming with the information they give me.
On the nature of jinn
In Islamic belief, jinn are intelligent creatures. Much like human beings, they have free will to choose between right and wrong. While a jinni may possess a human for pure wickedness, it may also do it for other reasons. Shaikh al-Islam ibn Taymiyyah suggests that a jinni may do it in order to experience the physical world, for reasons of desire or love. In this case, a jinni may not have a malicious intent, or may be unaware of the harm it is causing. A jinni might also use possession for revenge. Jinn are said to be quick to anger, especially when they believe themselves to have been purposely harmed (since jinn are usually invisible to humans, a person can accidentally injure a jinni).

Yes, this is true. But as per my experience, elendal, untruths do not manifest with divine synchronity. We tend to refine to contain only those that do, and remove those that don't. Cue AAC's koolaid example. In the end though, the only truth that really counts is Love, so why do you care what he says?

Well, that depends on how you define "divine" and "synchronicity".
Let me attempt to clarify these terms...
Divine - something above us, beyond our reach, that we cannot possibly understand.
Does that sound about right? Well, maybe except for that "we cannot possibly understand" part, but that's what most people believe, isn't it?
OK, let's now move to synchronicity.
Synchronicity - two or more things, seemingly unrelated, happening at the same time, or more or less the same time, that show close interconnectedness after inspection.
I think that describes it pretty well.
Now, the really, rally important thing about synchronicity is that it is solely based on our perception of time. We (the science) still don't understand that what we perceive as time is just another spatial dimension, or even more than just one, as I've seen some theories dealing with up to 3 dimensions of time. This practically means that everything, sort of, exists NOW. That doesn't mean "eternal now that never changes". It changes, alright, and to some unbelievable degrees, but it is all "now" in "Real Time" (if there is such a thing as Real Time).
Some beings out there understand this, and some are even using it to their advantage.
So, having all this in mind, let me translate your statement for you. You really don't understand what you said, so it's only fair that I explain it:
Any being that shows people the proof of divine synchronicity is to be considered God, and its ultimate and perfect knowledge must be accepted. If such a being says that the only truth that really counts is Love, then we must obey it, and we must never question it.
This does sound completely different from what you said, doesn't it. Yet, the intent behind both your words and mine is exactly the same.
