Caveat #3, Live on the Holy Spirit's Brains, not one's own!

HOLY SPIRIT's 'BRAIN' CAVEAT: "Filling of the Spirit" is a SOUL function, not a body function, so you can't feel it. BRAIN, not brawn: God is INFINITE, so UNFEELABLE. So: would you rather His (unfeelable!) Brain.. or your own? If His, then breathe 1Jn1:9 to be online with Him, as often as you remember (try to make it a habit). This need to name one's sins to God is as old as Adam: see Genesis 3, Ps32:5, 66:18. So it's not NEW; what IS new, is the Filling of the Spirit, to get the BRAINS you need to COMPREHEND THE COMPLETED CANON.

You can prove this fact fairly easily, even with a translation. 'Big hint is 1Jn's EXISTENCE as an epistle. It was written AFTER the Temple was destroyed, so AFTER the gift of tongues (a warning to Israel) ENDED. 'Written as a result of ALL the OTHER feely-spiritual gifts, ENDING. Everyone knew from 1Cor13's Greek that the gifts were only substitute teachers for the completion of Christ's "surpassing" (1Cor12:31, huperbale) thinking; for, the biggest promise in Scripture to be fulfilled, was Scripture itself in WRITING (Jer31:31-34, Isa53:11's Greek). Torah written on the HEART -- get maximum rapport with THE LORD, a goal quintessentially expressed in Ps119; see also Ps138:2b, 89:14-15, 31:5, Heb8:8-10:17, etc.

John was the last living apostle, so the last QUALIFIED person to write Scripture; so, he had to know he would be the last contributor to Canon. It's no surprise, then, that one of the refrains in 1Jn is about completion (e.g., 1Jn2:5, 1Jn4:16-19); and in Revelation, the capstone of completed time. So think: WHY would John spend so much time telling you how to DISCERN if you are in fellowship, if fellowship with God was something you could feel? You wouldn't need this ENTIRE EPISTLE if "getting the Ghost" was valid, for you could FEEL it. Don't know how God could make it plainer that INVISIBLE GOD IS UNFEELABLE.

So Bible likens being Filled to BREATHING (e.g., in Jas2:26), not emotion, and you are COMMANDED to it: "but be Filled with the Spirit"; Eph5:18's "plerow" is in the IMPERATIVE MOOD, VERY STRONG KEEP ON DOING THIS COMMAND. It's not something you ask for, it's something WRONG WITH YOU if it's not happening, and obviously it's not happening, in a state of sin. Hence 1Jn1:9. It's vitally important that you monitor your own thoughts, so you can DETECT if you're sinning, and USE 1Jn1:9. See 2Cor10:5, which also has the keep-on-doing-this stress. Hopefully you're beginning to get the idea that the Christian life is NOT works, but thinking, so is LIGHT-YEARS HARDER than the junk that's pandered as spirituality. [If you keep reading, and read some of the other sites, you'll have proof you yourself can see IN DETAIL. Suggest starting with "Due Disclosure" link at Home pagetop, once you're done with this Caveat.]

As we can tell from 1Jn1:5-10's 'building', without use of 1Jn1:9 like breathing, one cannot rightly interpret Scripture, since one is then in the dark, in sin, deceiving himself, making God out to be a liar, and no truth, no WORD is in him. So, he's a liar no matter what he says; so, he's not speaking Scripture, even if he QUOTES Scripture. Understand that the Holy Spirit runs the entire show. If you don't use 1Jn1:9 like breathing, your prayers will go no higher than the ceiling. Your comprehension of Scripture will ONLY be hot air ("leavened", you see), and your works will ALL BE DEAD WOOD.

The "out" state is called "adikia" in Greek of 1Jn1:9, and in the OT that word was used for a DEFILED TEMPLE. Another Greek word in 1Jn1:9, katharizw (kath-ar-REE-dzoh) is usu. translated "cleansed", but really means "purified" -- THE SAME WORD AS USED FOR PURIFYING the OT Temple. (As you may know, the Glory of the Lord FILLED the Temple, in OT times. That's the analogy John is making, here.) So your body is a Temple (1Cor6), BUT IT'S YOUR SOUL WHICH DEFILES IT, not what you put into the body (Mk7:18-20, Matt15); so if you are in a DEFILED state, nothing you do, think or say is anything but "wrongdoing", the better translation of "adikia". WITHOUT THE SPIRIT, you're brainout. Spiritually comatose (can't lose salvation).

As here in 1Jn1:9, you can begin to see John's really keen on using Greek OT buzzwords (LXX), which of course in English, you can't notice. So you don't understand that it's the FILLING which is referenced in 1Jn1:9. So too, if you are defiled, your prayers are spoken only to yourself. Prayer has a protocol:

  1. 1Jn1:9, name your sins to God (doesn't matter at ALL how you feel about it, just as it wouldn't matter in a courtroom);
  2. Address prayer to Father (no other Member of Godhead, for FATHER IS HEAD), see John 17;
  3. Thank God (this is vital for your confidence, not God needing to hear praise, but it is, THANK GOD, also protocol);
  4. Ask your requests (it's really a type of VOTE)
  5. in Son's Name, and
  6. BELIEVE.
Of course, any request you make which VIOLATES TRUTH will be answered "no"; after awhile if you've been breathing 1Jn1:9 you will know in advance what to ask and not ask. But practice, anyway. Ask anything and everything, so you GET that practice, analysing for correctness as you do it. BE AWARE OF GOD AT ALL TIMES. Prayer is a perfect way to do this: on the toilet, at the opera, doesn't matter. You are a walking TEMPLE, and what your SOUL THINKS, 'fills' that Temple. So if your thinking is NOT the Word, you are in a defiled state. Hence the need for 1Jn1:9. Of course, you can't be thinking a WORD you don't know! God the Holy Spirit only thinks TRUTH, the WORD, and if you aren't GETTING the WORD, you won't be Filled by Him but for those few seconds after you use 1Jn1:9.

So, in a deflied state, neither understanding of Scripture, nor any works (i.e., preaching, witnessing) will be anything but hot air. God still might cause you to speak His Truth if He gave you that gift (and every spiritual gift carries with it some ability to be accurate, beneficial, for the sake of others): but YOU won't benefit from it. [Acts 21 is a good primer on this, but start context from Chapter 15; note how wacko Paul becomes; Greek uses a lot of genitive absolutes, showing a split-screen action. My pastor spends a lot of time explaining this Greek syntactical device.] Additionally, as you'll see if you keep reading, LIES will come out from your mouth, and thus others will be deceived (their fault, not yours, but you were the agent). So, there is a great deal of misunderstanding about the Ministries of the Holy Spirit being taught or believed among CARNAL CHRISTIANS. God is precise, and therefore His Word is precise.

Satan &Co. strategically focus on screwing up the Christian's understanding of the Holy Spirit's Ministries, for then they DERAIL THE SPIRITUAL LIFE. But those so derailed STILL IMAGINE they are IN the spiritual life, so keep on "running out of bounds" (2Jn9's proago+me menwn, my pastor's translation) like a hotdogging quarterback, thus deceiving millions. Thus Satan&Co. can better DERAIL the Gospel, substituting lies like 'repent' or 'receive' for the fact that the ONLY way to be saved is to SIMPLY BELIEVE in Christ. Next, they more easily DERAIL desire to USE 1Jn1:9, for they well know that God must then stand off from the carnal Christian; just as He stands off from the world, owing to it being condemned in Adam, and people here are rebelling.

However, markers of satanic teaching can be detected; they are as predictable as the sunrise. Understand that it's vital those teaching satanic doctrine NOT KNOW they are doing so. Hence, you DON'T BLAME ANYONE for being 'guilty' here, you just be CAREFUL yourself. Because another satanic device, long successful in Christendom and in Judaism before her -- is to foment SCHISM and reaction. That's all the Arab-Israeli thing is about: Arabs are JEALOUS, en masse (individuals aren't the body politic), and Satan hopes to destroy BOTH Arabs AND Jews because BOTH are under the Gen12 promise. So he hopes to do the same with teachers and all Christendom. He NEEDS to, because he doesn't know when the Rapture will occur, either.

So how does Satan&Co. HOOK the teachers? Oh, just like Satan used against the Lord in Matt4, always! PUBLICNESS is stressed: popularity looks like a revival, see. Never mind that the Lord told Elijah His Power was in the still small Voice (1Kings9:9-13). Note how a LIE taps into a VALID motive, that of wanting people saved and growing in Christ. So the ascetic is particularly vulnerable, for his sin is self-righteousness, Pharisaical; but ROOTED in a genuine desire for people to be saved. [The whiter the sin, the harder it is to see. More about this problem will be said below.]

So, the pastor/believer who buys publicness has GONE OFF COURSE (used like the term in Gal5:4, nautical use of ekpiptw) so has LOST PROPER FOCUS, but won't recognize that fact. So now, "matiotes" (common Bible Greek word which essentially means a vacuum suction of dirt, emptily sucking air, usu. translated "vanity") can enter. Rom1:21, 1:28-2:24; Rom8:20, Paul's pregnancy metaphor of STERILE, hence Satan-fodder. All Satan&Co. have to do is make people FEEL like a given idea or teacher is 'good'. Thus, that idea/person is promoted, popular, so...oilá, RIGHT! FROM GOD! (Demons send thoughts, feelings, illnesses, etc: it's a big doctrine in the Bible.) That's why even famous evangelists and pastors, who USED TO KNOW the REAL Gospel (i.e., John 3:16), will in later years MISREPRESENT IT, telling you to have a heart belief, receive, invite, etc. (More on this horrible fake gospel result follows in the second and third bullets, below.)

This FEELING, PUBLICNESS tactic hooks the pastor or believer into measuring spiritual success by secular standards, and we all fall for it! Every story in the Bible shows believer failure on this count: even the apostle Paul fell in Acts 18ff., if not earlier, which is why God carted him off to Rome (see Acts 22 for the prohibition). No wonder Satan picked publicness as his metaphorical base to tempt Christ, the first one modeled on 2nd Meribah, etc.

Every type of distortion is easy, thereafter. So, it's now easy to mask the REAL Scripture by means of MISTREATED OTHER SCRIPTURE; for now that the lie of publicness is 'bought', demons can easily generate popularity as a VALIDATOR, so the masked truth is NOT promoted, so NOT 'rewarded' with public veneration. As a result, pastoral teaching is overwhelmingly ANTHROPOCENTRIC. "God" gets 'gutted'; only His Name remains. The worst part of this 'shellgame' is that the pastors GENUINELY love Him; but their love, and the teaching, arrests: they are forever STUNTED. God's real NATURE, which is the whole reason to even WANT to live in Heaven with Him.. goes untaught. Scripture thus becomes just another manipulative tool for making fame, money, self-worth. "God" becomes a designer label; so life becomes a tale told by an idiot; full of sound and fury, signifying nothing (as Shakespeare would say). No greater tearjerking tragedy can be told among men. Oedipus Rex, blind and wandering. Coming to Colonus (Bema, 1Cor3) only to find out how horrible...

Twisting Scripture was key to the 2nd Temptation, and is thus a vital element in Satan's "D-I-O-S" plan to fool people: Derision+ Imbalance+ Obfuscation =Substitution: a "strange"/FOREIGN 'god', him. Appendix Link in Thinking Series (box at Home page top) has a good hundred pages on how this DIOS plan works. Essentially, the Derision is BLATANT, the Imbalance is EMOTIONAL, the Obfuscation is LAWYERLY, and the Substition is REVERSING. Very neat, definitely way beyond human genius, and only being consistently Filled with the Spirit will rescue you from the myriads of pitfalls hitting you every second you breathe. [They also and always OBSESSIVELY play on REAL Bible Doctrines in the original-language inspired Scripture, and always play on Greek culture. If you know the Biblical Greek cult words and have even a gist-understanding of the culture, you can look at almost anything and SEE, LIVE, this awesome thesauretical derision. These two characteristics conclusively distinguish satanic DIRECT INVOLVEMENT from mere human hallucinatory or otherwise-goofy origin. The Appendix link covers these characteristics in much more detail.]

So, the doctrines STRESSED are not from God, and not even the real Word, however much the words are the same. Anyone can quote and misuse Scripture. All you have to do, is package the definition of Bible words, so when someone READS a verse with those FALSE definitions, he thinks he has CONFIRMATION from God. For, the 'shell' of the Bible words has been preserved, but the Bible's MEANING was cut out, and SUBSTITUTED with demonic meanings. Ergo the need for publicness, feeling, miracles, etc. to Imbalance reason. Ergo, the lie is always loud, to fragment REASONING. So, to counter the lie, look for its opposite. Or, know whatever is LOUDLY trumpeted, is a LIE. Both begin with "L" for a reason: to 'drown out', LORD.

It's a devastating tactic, to repackage Scripture's words with satanic definitions, be it in teaching, or in translations; that's one big reason why TRANSLATIONS are so awful and so misleading. In military parlance, this is called a salami tactic. A salami tactic is designed to FOOL the enemy by slicing off a CORE, leaving only a SHELL. The shell keeps on being seen, so the enemy doesn't realize the CORE, the ESSENTIAL, is removed. "Having a SEMBLANCE of godliness (term means 'spiritual life' in the Greek), but REFUSING its power; have NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM." 2Tim3:5. Refusing, that is, USE OF 1Jn1:9 and 1Jn2:5, keeping the WORD close to heart (thought-circulation function of the soul)! [Figurative use of "heart" in Bible only and always means circulation of BELIEVED SCRIPTURE. (Else it's talking about biology, which is not spiritual, but I can't think of a single verse where that use even exists.) Also, the Appendix to the Thinking series (box link at Home page top), has a whole lot of detail on the salami tactic topic so you yourself can see for yourself how it's done.] BODY STRESS is key, in Satan's plan. Getting your eyes ON people and this world, so your attention is OFF God. All in His Name, of course, you go OFF course.. of course! Political activism is a BODY thing (Rev17 harlot), for example; behavioral issues, stressing sin, stressing 'spirituality' as something you DO -- these are all SATANIC STRESSINGS. See, if they are careful to STRESS certain lesser truths, KEY truths are obscured; so KEY features of the spiritual life, WITHOUT WHICH YOU DON'T GROW, are obfuscated or even REVERSED. All the while, the Holy Spirit must attest to truth SPOKEN, no matter by whom. Heh heh -- so only CERTAIN truths are 'spoken' to the carnal Christian, after which, the CHRISTIAN SCREWS UP! 1Jn1:9 BREATHING, sustained, is the only defense, assuming you keep studying, too.

Our only ESCAPE from all these satanic, golf slicing sandtraps.. is 1Jn1:9; and WHILE FILLED, AUDITING our beliefs for 'fit'. Bible has, thank God! many verses. You must ALWAYS COMPARE SCRIPTURE WITH SCRIPTURE. If you don't know much Scripture, ask "How much SENSE does this belief really make?" YOUR OWN LIFE is at stake here. Not your parents'. Not your friends'. Not all those unwashed masses everyone and his brother is always urging you on TV to 'partner' to 'save'. THEY just want your money. GOD wants you HAPPY. Who is more important? Can't God take care of the unwashed masses? Wasn't it the LORD who warned not to gain the world, only to lose YOUR OWN SOUL? Even if you are saved (JUST BELIEVE IN CHRIST!), you can 'lose your soul' in the sense of NOT getting FILLED UP like Romans 8 explains. YOU and no one else will be JUDGED for what YOU JUDGE about God. Matt7:1-2 is a principle which you see repeated all over the Bible!

It took CENTURIES for Bible to be freed up so all can read it in the INSPIRED original languages. See, it's NOT God's Word EXCEPT in the original languages; so anything else is at best an approximation; at worst, a TRAVESTY of satanic derision. It's NOT God's Word in your soul if the BIBLE's definitions are not in your soul. So, when people don't want to LEARN the REAL Bible, it gets 'hidden' from them. Seeing Bible words, they won't see BIBLE's meanings; or, they won't even be seeing BIBLE's words. Bible repeatedly shows how the WORD goes 'lost' when people don't want it, starting with the initial entry into the "Land". From time immemorial, God only blesses the world for the sake of the believers in it (big topic in all my sites, esp. the Thinking series).

What's happened since the late 1800's is probably the most significant 'harvesting' of positive volition to God since the 1st century, from what I can tell. Folks like Tischendorf and Tregelles spent their lives during the 1800's getting these manuscripts compiled and available. Codex Vaticanus, one of the best original-language manuscripts, wasn't even available until 1889, when Vatican was pretty much forced by Tregelles' prodigious memory, to publish it. [Tregelles was not allowed to even have pen and paper to view the manuscript. So, he memorized it for the hours each day he was allowed to look at it. Then, he published what he remembered. Tischendorf discovered what would be called Codex Sinaiticus, which is another of our best manuscripts, which Lenin eventually sold to Great Britain, to get hard currency. One of the best internet sites on this topic is in German: www.bautz.de]

So, since the late 1800's the so-called (inaptly named) "independent church movement" has come to dominate Christendom. Which is by STRUCTURE, the most Biblical, since Paul penned Eph4:11-16 to SHOW IT'S GOD'S DESIGN TO COMPLETE BODY OF CHRIST. However, no translation is clear (Satan never misses a chance). Still, the Body 'discovered' the BIBLE's teaching that the Body of Christ should be STRUCTURED as INDEPENDENT and LOCAL churches, EACH CHAIRED BY ONE PASTOR. THIS IS A REALLY REALLY REALLY BIG DEAL. Although you should NEVER try to date the Rapture (which is the kick-off sign for the Tribulation), if you WERE trying to date the Rapture, this OUTBREAKING OF THE WORD is a far more significant indicator, than whoever-in-Europe is banding together. DON'T WASTE TIME: LEARN THE WORD NOW! YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MANY FOLKS IN YOUR GENERATION HAVE LEARNED IT WELL ENOUGH TO WARRANT CALLING US HOME! [Rapture's criterion is VOLITION, not any historical stuff you see happening per se. So whatever SHOWS volition's POSITIVE nature, i.e., the sudden rolling-out of Scripture, is the more important. LordvSatan4.htm goes into great detail on this topic. Best to read the whole "Thinking" series first (prior 3 htm's), so you won't read ~4.htm out of context.]

As a result, and given how we still don't spend sufficient time IN the original-language manuscripts, there predominate three basic classes of pastor-teachers . The first class is the smallest, and consists of (at most) a handful of pastors worldwide, who truly teach the WORD in the original languages. They are of variant growth levels, but get RIGHT that it's ONLY the Word, and only teach it. All else is incidental. So you just learn what Scripture says, not so much what to DO with it. Then, you CYCLE what you learned 24/7, during which process you LEARN what to do with it. All this, of course, assuming you BREATHE 1Jn1:9. If you're learning like this, GOD WILL GIVE YOU TIME. So you don't have to get nervous, anal, bulimic, etc. It's NEVER too late to get started.

A second and far more popular class really DOES focus on the WORD, but less so, compared to the first group. This makes them the more dangerous, for they are 'near-white'. For example, the second class mix experiential stuff in with the teaching; and the teaching, is too light on the WORD per se, but heavy on how to use WORD in bodily life. How God Himself IS, goes untaught or is shallowly taught; the pastor might be WELL trained, but either decides his congregation can't 'take it', or.. well, just settles for what's popular. With the result that, people are using WORD like a child would use a loaded gun, and shoot themselves in the foot. Ergo, this second class hasn't yet learned enough to rightly distinguish among the Spirit's Ministries, so still says that tongues and some kind of second (post-salvation) 'baptism', etc. exist; or, get OTHER FOUNDATIONAL doctrines, WRONG. So the parts they rightly teach, CAN'T be used. Your car won't operate if the battery is missing. If someone is pushing your car and you don't know it, you won't know the battery is missing. (Satan&Co. run all the spiritual towing companies, lol.)

The remaining class of other pastors don't really care about the WORD, or maybe are very much younger, spiritually, so just focus on the emotional rallying: those whose ministries focus on healing and other experience stuff would fit in this class. They are the most beguiled, and lure millions into their touchy-feely FAKE spirituality. But PRAY FOR THEM TOO. WE NEED PASTORS. God can reform any of us, and we should all be anxious to audit our beliefs, and to understand that human frailty IS MADE ESSENTIAL to God's Superior Work: 2Cor12:7-10. Paul, the worst sinner in history (see Timothy), the most-advanced BELIEVER in history (see 1Cor15:8-10), also did the screwiest DISOBEDIENCE in history (see Acts 22). But when he used 1Jn1:9 (just before the Romans rescued him), God FAR OUTBLESSED Paul for that: which we can see, for most of NT is written by Paul. So who's to say some dingdong preacher won't flip over, and become the greatest teacher of the next generation? Who's to say YOU or I won't flip over, too..? See: you're either on or off the playing field. But if ON, well -- there's no limit!

In all classes, it TAKES TIME to rightly divide Scripture, so there will be mistakes made en route. Not to worry, but don't just swallow, either: 'test the spirits' warns 1Jn, which means, BE UNDER THE SPIRIT, use 1Jn1:9 like breathing. And, if a pastor is famous, often on TV or in public rallies, etc. understand that his time for study is almost ZERO. So PRAY FOR HIM. The world needs us to learn Scripture, so it's strategically important that pastors receive the most fervent prayer. Prayer is a VOTE TO LEARN GOD BETTER. You can pray for other things, but if you DON'T pray for what increases learning Him, you'll see Leviticus 26 play out in your nation. WE ARE THE ONLY JUDICIAL SOURCE OF BLESSING TO THE WORLD. Not due to our merit, but Christ's; not due to our existence, but FOR FATHER. GOD DESERVES HIGH; so we are to be MADE HIGH by the Most High God. EACH OF THEM has a Self-Chosen Role in this. Focusing on, for us, BEING FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT. ['Central accounting theme of "Due Disclosure" link at Home pagetop.] See Paul's prayers in Ephesians 1:15-end chapt., 3:15-21, and the TRUE Lord's Prayer in John 17. (The so-called Lord's prayer is a model, not the actual words to use, and should really be called "the disiples' prayer". Wish people would do their homework.)

Spirit has 7 Permanent Ministries, for Church. The ones you see depicted PRE-COMPLETION of Canon, were TEMPORARY, to substitute-teach what WOULD BE in Canon. Healing and other spectacular gifts were to VALIDATE THE TEACHING, not to mesmerize the masses, unlike today's fakirs. (If you need healing, use 1Jn1:9 and talk to Father about it. You don't need to spend money or time on 'healers' EVER. See 2Cor12:7-10, and Ps32:1-5. "Spiritual Pathology" link in "Advance Topics" box at Home pagetop might help you troubleshoot a SPIRITUAL PROBLEM which is being punned by some physical problem you have, to wake you up to habitual study and use of 1Jn1:9. Faster still, JUST GET IN THE HABIT of 1Jn1:9 and habitual study under a good pastor teacher who FOCUSES ON TEACHING YOU WHAT THE WORD SAYS, not emotional junk. Probably most physical illness would greatly diminish or go away altogether, if THIS SOLUTION were assiduously followed. Of course, don't go wacko and stop medicine, etc. God is a God of Authority; illness which is due to NOT being in the spiritual life might remain to keep you from giving up too soon. We get back with God because we want something FROM Him; but we need perseverance so that motive changes to JUST WANTING TO KNOW HIM. So an illness, may need to remain.] The post-Canon permanent Ministries are:

  1. "Efficacious Grace" -- makes your faith EFFECTIVE for salvation (this is a real function, a breathing FOR you, as well as a judicial function),
  2. Regeneration (makes you born again, now a spiritual being),
  3. Sealing (permanizes salvation),
  4. Baptism (not water, but union with Christ, see Romans 6),
  5. Indwelling (has a lot of functions, but the one everyone knows is to SANCTIFY you so Father and Son can Indwell as well),
  6. Filling (unfelt, enables spiritual perception and breathes spirituality into all you think or do WHILE filled, so you needn't be some special church doer),
  7. One or more personally-tailored Spiritual Gifts (which are many more than people imagine, and WAY bigger than OT folks could even dream of). Of these Gifts, the highest COMMUNICATION gifts are evangelist and pastor, and are EXCLUSIVELY MALE. No more apostles, no more special knowledge, etc. -- those were all PRE-CANON, to substitute-teach UNTIL Canon completed. 1Cor13 is on this very topic, but in translation, you CAN'T SEE IT (theme began in Chap 2, w/ raison d'etre in 1Cor1:19ff; you need the Greek KEYWORDS to track Paul's threads). There are NO Divine Gifts of healing, prophecy, etc., extant. God does heal, but YOU ASK FATHER DIRECTLY; people can pray for you as well. Anyone posing as a healer is a LIAR. Only Satan plays that game.

So there's NO post-salvation 'anointing of the Holy Ghost', "the second blessing", or whatever it's called by folks. Some people on Christian TV use these terms to mean Filling, which is, if properly DEFINED, a meaning of "anoint". [In the OT, 'anointing' was FAR FAR LOWER than we Church get. Never mix up covenants. In all events, "Anointing" has no PHYSICAL connotation to it; look up how oil makes things WORK, look how anointing was a ROYAL DESIGNATION FUNCTION, and you'll get a clearer idea what BIBLE means.]

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE GOD. He wants EQUALS, not lesser beings. Satan sells this lie that we are all supposed to be 'low'. BALONEY. Do you think God should have a bunch of RETARDS forever? FOOTMEN? NO. NO. NO. God is Infinite, we are not. So it's NOT ACCEPTABLE to Him, see? So we can't GET infinite on our own, see? So we must be MADE Infinite, see? Which making ACTUALLY HAPPENS in eternity, for Church, since it happened to Christ, who BECAME the "Way, the TRUTH(!) and THE LIFE". Whose Thinking, is now in WRITING. So that CYCLING of Truth, ever higher, is God's goal for EACH of us. FUNCTIONING INFINITE QUALITY despite finite minds. Structure of Truth is built NOW in your SOUL, down here, requiring continuing CONSENT; eventually, that structure functions at ever-more-profitable levels, i.e., Gal5:21ff and Eph3:15ff. You take that Structure with you, when you die. A lot, or a little, depending on if you only CONSENTED to a little, or CONSENTED to a lot, for God never coerces volition: He only DOES THE WORK to the extent you CONSENT. Which, post-death, is EXPLOITED EXPONENTIALLY into a "Capital base" for Father to hear "sweet savor", Christ's Thinking. Forever. Ultimate retirement plan. Wealthy beyond all other wealths. Clearly, works aren't on the same playing field. Get all burned up, too: 1Cor3, second half of 2Peter.

In sum, you and I need God's BRAINS, no matter how high or low we are, human-to-human. Our own brains won't function except to help Satan&Co. foment lies. Moreover, Spiritual 'Brains' (God's) are NOT helped by human ones, nor hindered by them. By contrast, human brains cannot comprehend spiritual (1Cor2). So you NEED 1Jn1:9 to avoid 'brainout'. To instead be ONline ("fellowship") with Him, so you can learn and thus grow to God's Love (Rapport) Completion Purpose. ("Love" isn't emotional either, but a STASIS, since "God is Love" (verse in 1Jn4.) Learning Scripture BUILDS this Love in us, since All God's Attributes are Undivided; so, since Scripture IS Truth, His Attribute of Truth is LEARNABLE; so, is gradually deposited INTO you via the Spirit. So, likewise means DIVINE, not human, Love is 'in' those successive deposits (Rom5:5, Eph3:15-21, 1Jn1,4). This mechanic and its result is a main theme of Eph and 1Jn: especially, 1Jn4:17 in Greek. These epistles use keywords with Greek-culture meanings that translations fuzz over. So you miss what GOD says.)
