2Ti 3:16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

ALL Scripture...meaning all writings, not just religious, but all.

399 years in Babylon....one to go.

Peace

Well, I'm not one to limit God - he can use everything and anything to provide meaning and messages. However, I for one won't be reading Aleister Crowley or the Satanic Bible and expect to get a closer revelation of God. I think you're over-mysticising the idea.

I also wouldn't put Cayce material in the same category as the Torah, the Koran, the Bhagavad Gita or the teachings of Buddha. The spirits as you yourself have mentioned can clamour for the attention of the receiver, and the majority of genuine mystics will advise against such open channeling.

Cayce was a special 'case' (no pun intended), and I'm as yet undecided on the true value of his work. I'll read up some more and come back with a fully formed opinion - first impressions are of a self-conflicting wishy-washy ego massage in my humble opinion.

Scripture as understood from the passage you quote is to be understood as those writings inspired directly from Almighty God, not the material produced by Cayce or similar channelers as apparently originating from entities, or 'gods' (small 'g'). Anyone reading the verses of poetic potency from Job, or Isaiah will not fail to distinguish between the true Spirit of God and the flawed spirit of a man, or his 'higher' sources. As I say, I'm not doubting that God can be present in everything He so chooses to be present in. I'm not saying he wouldn't use Cayce's work to compel an individual towards a higher path - I'm just saying that he wouldn't contradict what He's already laid out, or debase Himself after aeons of powerful masterworks with lesser (not to mention confusing) literary efforts made via an unconscious, uninitiated intermediary.

Remember that Satan himself can appear as an angel of light (wolves in sheep's clothing..?) In genuine scripture we are warned that the last days will be filled with false prophets (not all of them complicit in the works of darkness; some will doubtless be unwitting pawns).

Still, I don't expect you will agree with me. I'd just stress caution in what you discern from the material you read, and check it out against what God has already revealed about Himself and His plans. In the New Testament, we are instructed to 'test the spirits', and basically to not believe everything we hear from those realms. Emanuel Swedenborg was a gifted Christian mystic, but even he was duped by 'lower' entities into believing that all the planets in our solar system had earth-like communities on them.

This all sounds like major propaganda from a country to recruit soldiers. Sons of light...sons of darkness...who's side are you on?

I am a Christian and this already sounds like recruiting mumbo jumbo. Don't worry about the future, your lift is a gift, live in the present.

My only wish was to help others by adding another piece to the "puzzle."
In love and light
