blessed love. read my post, ini never say to use the bible as the sorce of u'r faith, ini never say ignore u'r spirit, far from that,
there is an ignorance of early time, the men who walked with jah, enoch, abraham, noah, adam, etc did not speak with spirit, but face to face
6And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.
7My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.
8With him will I speak mouth to mouth,(num 12)im not saying u all are prophets.
now these men lived a life as examples to ini, heb 11. nothing isnew under the sun.
now you and i agree with what his majesty said
Because of this personal experience in the goodness of the Bible, I was resolved that all my countrymen should also share its great blessing and that by
reading the Bible they should find truth for themselves.
Therefore, I caused a new translation to be made from our ancient language into the language which the old and the young understood and spoke.
now i agree with H.I.M there
Today man sees all his hopes and aspirations crumbling before him. He is perplexed and knows not whither he is drifting. But he must realise that the Bible is his refuge, and the rallying point for all humanity. In it man will find the solution of his present difficulties and guidance for his future action, and unless he accepts with clear conscience the Bible and its great Message, he cannot hope for salvation. For my part I glory in the Bible.
H.I.M.: I would tell a person who was considering the claim of Christ for the first time that it is necessary to have faith in the Almighty, that it is necessary to have love,
and that it is necessary to conduct oneself in a manner that we have been taught to do in the Bible.
I would also advise him to seek the secular knowledge, for the more one knows the more he realises the need for a prime mover, the need for a Creator, a Creator who is good, and the need for salvation and also for peaceful life upon earth.
I would also tell him to learn and to think for himself the ways he would serve the Lord. In this thought and in this undertaking of his he will inevitably find the way of serving his fellow men. For his faith would then be manifested by His conduct. If Christians behave in this way, if we dedicate ourselves to this fundamental task, then we will have a peaceful world and will be assured of not transgressing against the will and the Commandments of God.
now u say there are many books for spiritual knowledge, i know of ellin white, who wrote the great controvercy, but even these send u to the bible, the kebra?
his majesty said it is the rallying point for ALL humanity, i think he mean
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness( 2 tim 3v16)
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
10Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.(eph 5v9-10)
the same spirit that write the bible is in ini and will not go against the written word, radder it renforce it. H.I.M renforce it, as we read.
now the spirit is in man, yes, but man by nature is selfish and the spirit must be norushed to develoupe. the bioble say forsake evil and learn o do good.
we can stop evil but have to learn to do good. many people lived to jah, yes and there ways are written that we may take example, not that we don't go through the same things.as his majesty said, we have job for example on test of jah. so why did H.I.M write HIS autobiogrophy.
can we live by our own selves?u think these men did not have guidence, jah talk to ini the sam through the bible; have u never had something on u'r mind and when u open the bible or while reading the bible u read exactly what u were thinking about?
the bible also show ini how easy it is to go astray
12There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death(pro 14)
All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits( pro 16v2
looking into ourelves without the training of ini spirit will go as far as ini own exprences, to ferther that is to gain from the expreince of one who has been there, the bible.
these men did not move because of a feeling, they moved because they were moved because of faith in truth they recieved.
although jah have not changed his way of comunicating have, don't get i wrong, when i washing my dishes in quite, thoughts and reasoning go through ini mind, but its of what i read and reasoned.
people who read the bible and do wicked, are one but people who study the bible, know wickedness is not of the lord. one of my fovroite passage not every one who say lord, lord will enter into the kingdom, but those who do the the will of the father.
