Spirit Channeling at Wallkill's Bethel
OrphanCrow thanks for those links. I never really talked about it much because No one really cares about the MOU. LOL
There was a real presence however at Bethel because most of the black brothers were criticized in their local territories for being a part of the "white man's religion. So alot of them woulkd try to mesh the two. Sit and actually exchange ideas etc.
It was rather interesting.
Thanks for the info OrphanCrow and silentbuddah!
I eat eggs daily. I crack them over a pan, and they have never had what I saw ~ Knowsnothing
It's interesting that strange patterns and colours are only seen when egg is broken in a glass of water. It's certainly interesting that the demons only show up then and not at other times.
I believe you continue to refuse to answer because you know the implications. I don't believe you are or were crazy, I believe your experience was real. Perhaps not a communication with God, but with spirits that gave you this ability. ~ Knowsnothing
So I followed the WT's, Bible's and elderd' advice to draw close to God through meditation and prayer, to seek solitude and time alone just like Jesus did to meditate, pray and draw close to God, to develop a personal, intimate relationship with God and really get to know God by meditating on his word and his ways AND YET I wasn't communicating with God, I was communicating with spirits who gave me clairvoyant, psychic abilities?
How can someone be following the Bible's advice to draw close to God through meditation and prayer and yet be communicating not with God but demons?
I am doing as the Bible states but yet I am communicating with demons who are giving me clairvoyant and psychic abilities?
[ Some Bible verses about meditation, prayer and drawing close to God:
2 Timothy 2:7
1 Timothy 4:15
1 Peter 5:7
1 Samuel 1
1 Thessalonians 5:16-19
Psalm 55:17, 22
Luke 2: 36, 37
James 4:7 ]
deegee, I didn't mean to offend you. I'm using this new account because I forgot my password on the other account.
Prayer and meditation is not wrong. You're right, it's biblical. What makes me doubt is the fact you became clairvoyant and started channeling through writing, among other things. God doesn't give us those abilities. He can give us ability to heal, cast out demons, but those things you mentioned are not mentioned in the Bible.
When we pray to him, we don't seem those powers, only to do his will.
I've also prayed to Jesus as well. I used to think that was heresy, but Paul did so, and it seems that was the practice of the 1st century Christians.
I don't for a second doubt your account. I don't believe you were merely taking to yourself, and I don't think you just thought you had powers. All I disagree upon is the source of these powers.
The egg account isn't my only experience, I have had others.
but those things you mentioned are not mentioned in the Bible ~ knowsnothing1
Last time I checked, to be clairvoyant/psychic means being able to foresee/predict the future. Isn't that what the so-called prophets in the Bible did? Doesn’t the Bible also contain stories about people having visions about future events?
All I disagree upon is the source of these powers ~ knowsnothing1
How is it possible for the source of my clairvoyant/psychic abilities to be the demons when all I am doing is the same thing which Jesus did - seek solitude/ alone time to earnestly and incessantly pray to God and meditate about what is written in the Bible and WT literature and what I have been taught/told about God? I did the same thing which Jesus did.
you ........started channeling through writing, among other things. God doesn't give us those abilities. He can give us ability to heal, cast out demons, but those things you mentioned are not mentioned in the Bible ~ knowsnothing1
The most outstanding example of channeling through writing in the Bible was Moses receiving the Ten Commandments written by the fingers of God.

There are accounts in the Bible where persons prayed until they self-induced/voluntarily induced a trance state/altered state of consciousness in which they saw visions and heard voices.
I too had this experience when I would engage in intense, deep, strong prayer and meditation and unknown to myself, self-induced/voluntarily induced a trance/ altered state of consciousness.
I also experienced visions and the auditory sensation of hearing voices - it was like someone was standing right beside me and speaking directly into my ear:
“It happened when I returned to Jerusalem and WAS PRAYING at the temple, I FELL INTO A TRANCE AND SAW THE LORD SPEAKING TO ME. ‘Quick!’ he said.‘Leave Jerusalem immediately, because the people here will not accept your testimony about me.’
“‘Lord,’ I replied, ‘these people know that I went from one synagogue to another to imprison and beat those who believe in you. And when the blood of your martyr Stephen was shed, I stood there giving my approval and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.’ “THEN THE LORD SAID TO ME, ‘Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.’ ”
"On the next day, as they were on their way and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour TO PRAY. But he became hungry and was desiring to eat; but while they were making preparations, HE FELL INTO A TRANCE; and he saw the sky opened up, and an object like a great sheet coming down, lowered by four corners to the ground, and there were in it all kinds of four-footed animals and crawling creatures of the earth and birds of the air. A VOICE CAME TO HIM, "Get up, Peter, kill and eat!" But Peter said, "By no means, Lord, for I have never eaten anything unholy and unclean." AGAIN A VOICE CAME TO HIM A SECOND TIME, "What God has cleansed, no longer consider unholy." THIS HAPPENED THREE TIMES, and immediately the object was taken up into the sky. Now while Peter was greatly perplexed in mind as to what the VISION which he had seen might be, behold, the men who had been sent by Cornelius, having asked directions for Simon's house, appeared at the gate; and calling out, they were asking whether Simon, who was also called Peter, was staying there. While Peter was reflecting on the VISION, THE SPIRIT SAID TO HIM, "Behold, three men are looking for you. "But get up, go downstairs and accompany them without misgivings, for I have sent them Myself." Peter went down to the men and said, "Behold, I am the one you are looking for; what is the reason for which you have come?" They said, "Cornelius, a centurion, a righteous and God-fearing man well spoken of by the entire nation of the Jews, WAS DIVINELY DIRECTED BY A HOLY ANGEL to send for you to come to his house and hear a message from you." So he invited them in and gave them lodging. And on the next day he got up and went away with them, and some of the brethren from Joppa accompanied him.
"But Peter began speaking and proceeded to explain to them in orderly sequence, saying, "I WAS IN THE CITY OF JOPPA PRAYING; AND IN A TRANCE I SAW A VISION, an object coming down like a great sheet lowered by four corners from the sky; and it came right down to me, and when I had fixed my gaze on it and was observing it I saw the four-footed animals of the earth and the wild beasts and the crawling creatures and the birds of the air.
"I ALSO HEARD A VOICE SAYING to me, 'Get up, Peter; kill and eat.' "But I said, 'By no means, Lord, for nothing unholy or unclean has ever entered my mouth.' "BUT A VOICE FROM HEAVEN ANSWERED A SECOND TIME, 'What God has cleansed, no longer consider unholy.' "THIS HAPPENED THREE TIMES, and everything was drawn back up into the sky. "And behold, at that moment three men appeared at the house in which we were staying, having been sent to me from Caesarea. "THE SPIRIT TOLD ME TO go with them without misgivings These six brethren also went with me and we entered the man's house. "And he reported to us how he HAD SEEN THE ANGEL STANDING IN HIS HOUSE, AND SAYING, 'Send to Joppa and have Simon, who is also called Peter, brought here; and he will speak words to you by which you will be saved, you and all your household.' "And as I began to speak, THE HOLY SPIRIT FELL UPON THEM JUST AS HE DID UPON US AT THE BEGINNING. "And I REMEMBERED THE WORD OF THE LORD, HOW HE USED TO SAY, 'John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.' "Therefore if God gave to them the same gift as He gave to us also after believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could stand in God's way?" When they heard this, they quieted down and glorified God, saying, "Well then, God has granted to the Gentiles also the repentance that leads to life."
My fault deegee. I haven't read the Bible enough. Thank you for those texts.
I still contend that what you saw was real then. I do believe there is more to reality than the material world. I stand by that affirmation, and I believe God exists too.
No comment about this?

I haven't found anything which you have stated so far to be offensive. I think we have been having a good discussion.
I don't have an adequate response to your question as regards to the source. You said you also read the WT. I believe they have false doctrine. Through much study, and ironically from one of cofty's posts, I came to the conclusion that JWs treat Jesus wrong. They don't elevate him to the position he deserves. Sure, they pay him lip service, but they aren't allowed to pray directly to him. You will never hear a JW day say they are a slave of Christ.
What I do want to get at, is simply that you didn't merely imagine things. This clairvoyant ability was from an external source, not something your subconscious mind merely produced. Were you ever accurate in your predictions? I think even some accuracy would demolish the claim that these things were just fabrications of an over active, superstitious mind.
I did try to reset, but I have an email I don't use and that I also forgot the password for. I pmed Simon, but never got a response. Either way, I'm not concerned.
I'm relieved I didn't offend you. I like the exchange we are having. I can share more stories of the supernatural if you like.
