Meanwhile, he is offering for the people at BTDF to learn from him the truth concerning angels and the Holy Spirit, and so be saved. However, he doubts that anyone will listen, on account of being blinded to his message by their conviction that the teaching of their (Christadelphian) church is correct.
Not really, because that would imply that Christadelphian understanding of the Bible on this matter is different than mine. Yet reading Christadelphian material on the Holy Spirit today is no different to reading Fortigurns posts on how to interpret Genesis 1 in 2003. Neither followed through with the obvious conclusions of their own statements at the time. Seems to me the most obvious things are painfully slow for some to finally accept, so what causes that?
Let me re-state it as clearly as possible, it is not hard.
1. Christadelphians say the Holy Spirit is "Gods power" (that is an effect), it is a bit like someone asking me what the word "army" means and I reply "the States power", a more accurate reply in context would be "lots of men", so likewise a more accurate reply for what the Holy Spirit is would be "the great company of Gods angels", so it is not an unusual concept to have one word that expresses such a concept. So for somereason Christadelphians have left what the Holy Spirit is, undefined, despite the rest of your theology clearly revealing the Holy Spirit is used for angels, one such example of the Angel of his presence
, in other examples we learn that the "Holy Spirit" performs the exact same role as our "ministering angel" and just to completely confirm the obvious, we then have NT symbolism of tongues/flames of fire matching OT symbolism for Gods ministering angels. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit is the out pouring of ministering angels. The fact they are poured out along with atleast 4 other mentions expressing the fact we are talking about a vast number here, i.e "myriads and myriads", "tens thousands and thousands...", "innumeralbe" is logical proof that this cannot just refer to the events of Pentecost alone because their were not millions of Christians in 34AD.
2. There is no mystery in the Bible or theology from silence. If you cannot see what is totally obvious you need to ask yourselves why? No one will turn up here with another interpretation of the Holy Spirit from the Bible, (because none exist), therefore, as I have stated very clearly, their are no mysteries, if the Bible tells us the angels are Gods power and the Holy Spirit is Gods power it is because they are two ways of expressing the same thing. If the Bible calls the angel of his prescence the Holy Spirit you cannot therefore attempt to make an unknowable mystery from a plain revealing fact. It is infact impossible to make a mystery out of what the concept of the Holy Spirit is, the only slightly veiled implication related to the Holy Spirit is when Jesus says the Holy Spirit cannot come until after He is gone, which is intentionally implying a relationship between Jesus and the Holy Spirit, but Jesus is the Holiest Spirit and as your ministering angel comes in His Name (did with me), then so it is said, "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me."
3. There is a difference between having the Holy Spirit in all fullness and having the Holy Spirit partially, at times, inspiring you on occassion, as David. When the angel spoke to me in 1982, he dictated, like a boss would dictate to his security who would then write it down. This was because I was a child, I was pure, a holy angel could be in my prescence that openly, when Jesus says these words are not my own but Gods, that is because His ministering angel, or angels where dictating to Him as above and He was then saying them out loud (exactly what happened to me). This is how it works, yet David for example, was a sinner, he must have still had a good heart but because he was a sinner he did not have the Holy Spirit as Christ did, or even as I did as a child. If you read the Psalms carefully you will see he had the Holy Spirit, like perhaps I would today. Most of the time his writings are not inspired, but every now and then the Holy Spirit impresses inspiration upon his mind that come out in the form of typological prophecies etc.
Let me tell you about the potential of prayer if you are pure and Godly from two examples in my childhood, both of which if happened to a Christadelphian today would remove all doubt/free will, which God will not do if you cannot handle it, or do not really want it.
The first example it was mid afternoon and I was alone in the living room. In the cabinet there was crucifix/rosery beads that the pope had given my father, along with a large papal coin in a purple velvet type box, because the pope had touched it I would go to the cabinet and stare at it in awe. On that day as I was looking the crucifix melted infront of me into the shape of a Nazi swastika symbol, not literally, but it was a very powerful vision and I mean very powerful. No abiguity or denial possible. I was obviously troubled at this for a few moments so I ran upstairs into corner of my mothers room where I always used to pray alone and I said "please God help me what does this mean" or words to that effect and I was immediately told not to let is concern me now but it was something I would remember as an adult and understand. Immediately I felt a huge wait lift off my shoulders and I said "thankyou" and ran off playing happily as child.
The next example was around the same time, just before the first example above I think, and it concerned the other object the pope had given my father, the large guilt gold coloured papal coin. Again, I had been praying with it as the pope had touched it and I had a moment of doubt and said out loud "is this really Holy because the pope touched it" and it immediately felt absolutely disgusting in my hand so much so I had to get it away from me and threw it to the other side of the room and shouted "yuk". Now that was more like an electric shock it was such a powerful answer to that prayer.
So why does God not answer any of our prayers like that anymore? The answer is actually really sad but the Bible reveals it very clearly, in as much as David was a sinner and because of this a Holy Spirit just cannot stay in his prescence for long, that is not to say not at all, but Christ had the Holy Spirit like no other because He was pure, He was not a sinner, the Holy could abide in His prescence, infact He became more Holy and mighty than the ministering angels who ministered to Him for that reason.
Now in light of all the above let me tell you what YOUR religion is all about. Why are we to be pure? Why are we to be Holy? Because only then can God via His angels live amongst us. Here is what it is all about, "But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth" Gen 8;9. Did you get that? The Holy Spirit (Gods great company of ministering angels) cannot abide with wicked waters and the entire Bible is about conforming us to their Spirit in order that the dove/Holy Spirit finds rest on this earth, with us.
What I have also learned is that the repression of child hood memories or perhaps bad things which can happen to you as a child can be controlled by your angel. So if you cannot remember something it may be to protect you, I think psychologists call this 'repressed memory syndrome' but have no explanation for it. Certainly in my case, because I had been shown a vision of the metaphor of Satan in order to teach me something about the RCC and the pope, the angel told me he would "put a veil of forgetfullness over me" until the moment I asked for the Holy Spirit in my adult life and "the veil would be removed" and I would remember all this and the instructions given as clear as yesterday, that moment.
I just thought I detected sarcasm in what you wrote.
You did, there was a bit dry sarcasm in their, the assumption my friends think I am mad (which is why he misread it), although it was not that clear I was talking from his ministering angels perspective. He also attempted to put me in his 'wacky new ager type' pigeon hole box by appealing to rediculous extremes (a common CD tactic), i.e my "guardian angel". I never use such language, I stay well away from any book that talk of guardian angels probably as much as he does, yet all this is part of the course when talking to most CDs about this Bible reality, as I say, it is just half way to athiesm and unbelief imo.
All I am asking you to do it reach the obvious conclusion of your own undefined theology
of what the Holy Spirit is. Once you do that the mystery is removed and in private, alone, Christadelphians will be praying for guidance from their ministering spirit in droves, the sincere ones who actually care more about what the Bible reveals than the confort of tradition and not causing a stir, their is no reason to change anything. Just complete what your founders left undefined, which I am here to define very clearly for you.
Here is a simple question, if Christadelphians pray to God for help in understanding the Bible, as they did at the start of each lesson I had with you, then how do you think such prayers are answered? Gods power? If you cannot answer this, then this alone should demonstrate you have a problem. Witnessing gifts have ceased, the Holy Spirit may infact be incredibly rare these days, I just do not know, but what I do know is all of the above is true and is my testimony to you, for reason.
