Holy Spirt, it does this, does that, sees this, sees that, does or doesn't do this, heals one minute and doesn't the next, but it's all god's will, etc. The Holy Spirt is sure hard figure out- it acts almost like, uh, coincidence. When I got appointed as an elder back in 1975, the wheels started turning. I didn't quailfy to be an elder, but I just figured why should I "out" myself over something JW's said was verbotten. I would just lay low and the appointment would be denied- all thanks to the Holy Spirit. Surprise! My appointment sailed through with flying colors. Later, I even tested the all knowing Holy Spirit numerous times and you know what? Jehovah's organization never smelled a rat. I even tested the Holy Spirt later at a revival meeting, after I went back to Christianity . I went up front to receive the Holy Spirt. I had an open mind and when they laid hands on me, I didn't fall over. Now they tried to "help" me, but I just stood there and looked down at the ones on the floor. I smiled at one lady and I could tell she knew what I knew, too. They put on a nice show- I think some of them were shills. They hustled me off to the side of the stage. The only time the spirt seemed to speak to me was when I asked the founding elders and pastor at a Vineyard Church, "who owned the impressive church and controlled the money?" Yes, they loved that one. This was my second wife's church and she loved all the speaking in tongues, laying on the hands, the healing prayers. Just don't ask about finances.
Anyway, back to JW land, I remember now, Ray Franz told me about 20 years ago that only the "process" used by the WT was by the Holy Spirt, not the actual selection of the elders. Like an election being a legal process, but there are no guarantees that trustworthy men get elected. Of course he knew at that point it was a joke up in Bethel. He was still looking for the true abode of the hokey spirit back then. We have religious Jews who believe in a form of the holy sprirt, at least I have heard of them. They say there are who people have seen a UFO, too.
