I see time and time again, when asked how do they know. They will claim the Spirit leads me to these truths. If this is the case, then why is there
so many divisions in Christianity if all of these people are led by the Spirit? Or, even take ATS as an example. Why are there so many debates on
faith, if everyone is led by the same Holy Spirit?
As it stands, the Spirit of God does not change, so why would said Spirit give one person one interpretation, and another a different one?
If the Holy Spirit is not in error, then it must be concluded that the person is in error.
So, the main question is, why does one person say when led via the Spirit, their word is true over another's?
This has been on my mind for some time now... I have to get some things out OP.. this is going to be deep but this is where my mind is currently on
The spirit leads all of us to do what is right by our fellow man and or brother/sister. Our way (spirit) through the material being (spirits vessel)
may go against our brother/sister and in doing so is going against the Holy Spirit, the energy within us all.
For one person their path is one way and for another it is another way, however all ways will indeed lead to the one way and our survival as a species
in the flesh depends on this.... If we want to fight it, that is. Fight to stay in the material and evolve which I think we can do.
We do have to treat each person as yourself (Golden Rule). Each expression we see in ALL people (that we may not like) reflect God in one way or
another. We are ALL of Gods children. We ARE the Israelites (in spirit) too! We, the 12 tribes scattered among ALL nations and it is WE (all spirits)
who will be called upon one day. How did you do? How do you reflect God in your life with other people? Not your religion.... no..... YOU? Your
When doing good by our brother and being his keeper (going in the good order of nature) we create a loving family, then a community, then a nation,
then a world of compassion and love. No one goes hungry and no one is denied health care. We are all shown love and help one another. This is peace.
Where there is peace, there is no war.
This is how Jesus lived and many others we can learn from.
What sets the Bible aside from different texts is Jesus (King/Son of Man) help write the Bible with different incarnations. Don't believe me? Read
Enoch, Joshua and Melchizedek,then message me with your thoughts. Those are just a few incarnations, but there is more. That is why also the Buddhist
religion is so good spirited. Jesus has inspired many texts and that is why The Bible is awesome with foretelling war/peace both past, present and
future. It is for all of time as we have known it.
We can see it and change it though, from within our hearts and thats exactly what Jesus asks us to do. History can be changed as we are the creators
of this world. We're not doing so hot right now, but we have the power to change it.
ALL RELIGIONS and philosophies go against the Holy Spirit WHEN it seeks to divide one against the other. We have to love our brother and his
differences. Maybe you don't believe we are all Israelites (Spirits), that we are all Gods children? We are the House of Israel.... our spirit IS!
Israel was a name created and given BY GOD. What does it mean? Rebel. God gave it to Jacob for rebelling against the angels. Jesus is said to be King
of the Israelites (mankind) and he is the judge. Each time we go back home, we have to come back and reap what we sow until we reach a perfection
with spirit (personality). We are mere babies evidently.
We are ALL rebellious in one way or another. Mankind is rebellious. Mankind is Adam/Jesus, ALL PEOPLE. We (Not flesh, but the spirit) are all in the
seed of Abraham (spiritual sense)....bad and good and in between but we can CHOOSE, all the time we are awake and asleep, to be good to our fellow
man. We do not have to claim religion.... we just have to choose to be good to our brother/sister.
For anyone with kids... you know how important it is (to you) for your kids to be there for one another and to get along. I know it breaks my heart
when my kids are mean to each other.... Our father is no different. He wants us to be kind to one another and try to get along. Words are created for
us so we can talk things out with one another. We have all the tools to succeed but we divide our self from one another as a whole and this is no
good. It ends civilizations.
Solomon shows us what happens when the material begins to lead your heart and it goes against the people who are Gods children...God's Israelites. His
people are to help their brother and be his keeper. This is law. Karma exists and we pay it all the time. Cause and Effect... One cannot read a
religious text and not see the spirit of it... otherwise you are not being lead by the spirit but a person in error.
