A Possible Revelation...

A  few weeks ago, during a weekly Christian class I attend, I was made aware that "casting lots" meant more than just gambling, I'm talking about what I would call a sort of divination, a way to get answers from God that was used in the past (Bible days).

After my baptism, I didn't want to do anything that would be displeasing to God, and the Bible clearly states to not perform divination, yet it seems that the Bible is full of examples of what could be called divination done in the name of the Lord, tonight I came to a conclusion about the seemingly contradictory parts of the Bible.

I have been studying the Bible about the gifts of the Spirit tonight, as I wandered around the Scriptures, I was reading about sacrifices, now the Bible clearly states not to worship idols, that would include any kind of sacrifices made to an idol, yet the Bible also talks about sacrificing to God, that is a good thing, so it is not the act of sacrificing that is considered good or bad, it is the intent of the person making the sacrifice, is it to God or to an idol? The one to the idol is clearly wrong and the one to God is clearly good.

So what if I treat divination the same way? If it is performed through and with the power of God, then it must be good, if it is performed with and through anything else but God, then it would be considered bad. I am specifically talking about using dowsing rods and any other tool to get answers. This is not to say I would rely on such tools all of the time, just when necessary and needed, again used with the utmost care and with much prayer.

There are lots of other examples like this in the Bible, bowing and worshiping, praying, seeking answers... do these to an idol (or anything other than God) and it's wrong, do these to God and it's good, so it's not the act that is good or bad, it's who we do it toward or about that determines whether or not it's a good or bad thing.

I will discuss this with my pastor and see what he thinks about this line of thinking, I'll also pray and ask God about this, I know He will confirm this, or blow it out of the water. :)

Better and Better

Things are moving along quite nicely for me, I have been praying, studying and seeking about this prophesy thing, and you know what? It turns out I've been doing it all along, I just didn't have a name for it, I've gotten much more comfortable with it too, not complacent though, I have to be careful to treat this with the reverence it deserves, and as always, this does not come FROM me but THROUGH me, it's my gift but not MY ability. I also have to trust God that He will give me the knowledge, the wisdom and the tools necessary to do all of these things.

I am forever thankful that the spiritual part of my life wasn't taken from me when I was baptized, though I was prepared to leave it all behind if that was the will of God, this might sound like an oxymoron, but it's so liberating turning everything over to God, I have no more doubts about the spiritual part of my life, any questions I have (past, present and future) I just pray about it, ask for an answer (or confirmation) and leave it alone, the answer (or confirmation) always comes in good time. I even wondered if I should take this blog down, some of my regular readers might have noticed that I deleted some of the articles I wrote, things that I didn't know if they were something I would want my pastor to read should he find this, now I know this blog is here to stay, I will be revamping it to reflect the view I have now, so keep coming back and be looking for the new look. :)

I feel like my spiritual life and my religious life were two different, but parallel paths, now those paths are merging and I couldn't be happier about it. Life is definitely good! Thank you to my long time readers, and welcome to my new readers, hang on, this ride is about to get going. :)
