I really hope you will lead us further into this topic Sister Bonita...for if only ONE truth were to be gleaned from the Revelation, is it not this ONE that opens the door to trust, faith, love, hope, peace of mind, happiness - the very bedrock of the pilgrim's progress??!! I remain, still, too focused on the truths confirmed and the truths revealed by our Revelation to the point, perhaps, of distraction...if any understand what I mean..... eye and mind candies, so many to behold, we can become awed to dwell on or attached to our confoundments. The "secret" knowledge, not at all hidden within the Revelation, is this relationship with Michael and by TA AND Michael with Father in balance with the Spirit of Truth and Holy Spirit to create soul/morontia mind which feeds the Supreme and leads to the grandest adventure beyond our imagination.....this is the very center of the hiway to Havona.
The less I know of this by experience and practice, the further from the center of the hiway is my trail, winding around and around, up and down. whoooeeee, I just took 10 years of trail time to move 100 dang yards down the hiway. NUTS!! If I'm not too stupid, I should learn to not stray so far from the hiway's edge (at least) and then learn to find the very center of this hiway to fusion and finaliter adventures to come. The combined circuits and celestial agents of mind and spirit work best "in balance". The real and only important circuitry must be connected by our will, our wish, our priority and intent, and our act....making our connection at each point critical to both the circuitry and the balance. While all of "them" are, of course fully incircuited, we must complete the circuit to fill our own souls and progress in morontia mind. The importance of Michael as friend, mentor, brother, father, and creator was demonstrated and articulated by Him.....I have much yet to learn about His gift to each and to all and the accompanying invasion/flood of Thought Adjusters. I hope for further discussion on making the Michael connection work for us and through us...... The Significance of Pentecost
Jesus lived on earth and taught a gospel which redeemed man from the superstition that he was a child of the devil and elevated him to the dignity of a faith son of God. Jesus’ message, as he preached it and lived it in his day, was an effective solvent for man’s spiritual difficulties in that day of its statement. And now that he has personally left the world, he sends in his place his Spirit of Truth, who is designed to live in man and, for each new generation, to restate the Jesus message so that every new group of mortals to appear upon the face of the earth shall have a new and up-to-date version of the gospel, just such personal enlightenment and group guidance as will prove to be an effective solvent for man’s ever-new and varied spiritual difficulties.
The first mission of this spirit is, of course, to foster and personalize truth, for it is the comprehension of truth that constitutes the highest form of human liberty. Next, it is the purpose of this spirit to destroy the believer’s feeling of orphanhood. Jesus having been among men, all believers would experience a sense of loneliness had not the Spirit of Truth come to dwell in men’s hearts.
This bestowal of the Son’s spirit effectively prepared all normal men’s minds for the subsequent universal bestowal of the Father’s spirit (the Adjuster) upon all mankind. In a certain sense, this Spirit of Truth is the spirit of both the Universal Father and the Creator Son.
Do not make the mistake of expecting to become strongly intellectually conscious of the outpoured Spirit of Truth. The spirit never creates a consciousness of himself, only a consciousness of Michael, the Son. From the beginning Jesus taught that the spirit would not speak of himself. The proof, therefore, of your fellowship with the Spirit of Truth is not to be found in your consciousness of this spirit but rather in your experience of enhanced fellowship with Michael.
The spirit also came to help men recall and understand the words of the Master as well as to illuminate and reinterpret his life on earth.
Next, the Spirit of Truth came to help the believer to witness to the realities of Jesus’ teachings and his life as he lived it in the flesh, and as he now again lives it anew and afresh in the individual believer of each passing generation of the spirit-filled sons of God.
Thus it appears that the Spirit of Truth comes really to lead all believers into all truth, into the expanding knowledge of the experience of the living and growing spiritual consciousness of the reality of eternal and ascending sonship with God.
