Moreover,repparttar Holy Spirit isrepparttar 137578 illuminator. The work ofrepparttar 137579 Spirit of God as witness and as persuader is an analogy taken from juridical procedures. But there is another model ofrepparttar 137580 witness ofrepparttar 137581 Spirit which comes from what might be calledrepparttar 137582 realm ofrepparttar 137583 intellectual or of knowledge or of learning. In this modelrepparttar 137584 witness ofrepparttar 137585 Spirit is illumination according to Bernard L. Ramm, author ofrepparttar 137586 book entitled, A Christian Appeal to Reason (Word Books Publisher 1972). Illumination is seeingrepparttar 137587 truth of God asrepparttar 137588 truth of God. It does not necessarily mean new information. A person may know allrepparttar 137589 facts and still overlook God.

Those who are of a pure heart will see God, according to Matthew 5:8. This means thatrepparttar 137590 vision of God is possible only on spiritual grounds, not rational or philosophical grounds. Illumination is then something that happens with saving faith in which there is forgiveness of sins which is in turnrepparttar 137591 purification ofrepparttar 137592 heart. Thenrepparttar 137593 sinner sees God. Seeing is a visual term, an intuitional term. It means a direct grasp or apprehension of something in contrast to knowing something through logical processes such as induction or deduction (Ramm, page 42).

Think about this. When you reachrepparttar 137594 limits of your understanding, don’t stop. Kick in faith. Ask God to help you believe. The Holy Spirit is glad to witness torepparttar 137595 saving grace ofrepparttar 137596 Father through Jesus Christrepparttar 137597 Son. He is overjoyed to persuade you of this truth. He will help you see God where others see only doubt and confusion. The Spirit of God is not a Ghost who scaresrepparttar 137598 believer. He is Spirit. Andrepparttar 137599 Bible says that those who worship God must worship Him in Spirit and Truth.

Keeprepparttar 137600 faith. Stayrepparttar 137601 course. Jesus is on His way. T.dash…

The Afterlife and Scientology

Continued from page 1

Inrepparttar early 80s aroundrepparttar 137295 time this interview with Hubbard Jr. took place, I dated a woman who wanted to marry me. She was fromrepparttar 137296 Anderson family, and her mother wasrepparttar 137297 head ofrepparttar 137298 Masonic women's league which she calledrepparttar 137299 Emerald Society. She was a down to earth sort of person who seemed OK and knew of my interests in esoteric 'philosophy. I knew little aboutrepparttar 137300 Anderson's andrepparttar 137301 Constitutions by that name which are central torepparttar 137302 Masonic order (based on recent research, I've done.). She falls intorepparttar 137303 category of those relationships I couldn't trustrepparttar 137304 motives of, due to my money; but she doesn't fall intorepparttar 137305 category of cultist or fool. In fact my own issues and lack of maturity at handling these insecurities were more ofrepparttar 137306 problem that caused me not to be able to handle what others felt was success.

Her mother was old and suffering from some kind of certain illness. It was a two year period during which she endeavoured to convince my lady's sister and her own daughter to allow a soul transfer to occur so that her mother would possessrepparttar 137307 body and controlrepparttar 137308 mind of her daughter. The uses of rituals according to old books inrepparttar 137309 Masonic/ Rosicrucian theology were involved. Sounds ridiculous, and I only have her word andrepparttar 137310 word of someone who introduced her to me a year earlier, to confirm it. The Hubbard/ Crowley/Levi/Randolph story is a corollary to it, and there are other similar possessions I've helped overcome since. The situation sounds unbelievable when I say;repparttar 137311 daughter killedrepparttar 137312 mother and toldrepparttar 137313 truth. She was charged with murder. The courts let her off with time served, whenrepparttar 137314 trial was through. That was not a long time, because she pled guilty! It is possible this 'Emerald Society' was an inner sanctum group aligned withrepparttar 137315 knowledge of Hermes (previously Thoth's and Ptah’s knowledge) that existed in ancient Egypt and is reflected inrepparttar 137316 Emerald Table or Tablet which we will cover later. This is not a reincarnate soulful transition but is a way of avoiding death.

The fear of death has much to do with many afterlife beliefs, and I thinkrepparttar 137317 Keltic Creed and its related native beliefs of North America have a healthier attitude aboutrepparttar 137318 soul and its immortality. There is no reason to live in fear of death – that leads to a lack of growth (which is LIFE!). There are many books and beliefs that deal withrepparttar 137319 afterlife and various related theological constructs. SETH SPEAKS was a great book that I learned a great deal from around this time in my life. I was never convincedrepparttar 137320 premise was true, butrepparttar 137321 knowledge made sense. Having read some ofrepparttar 137322 author's other work, I'm pretty sure it wasn't a channeling from another spirit called Seth.

As a literary device to conveyrepparttar 137323 knowledge she imparted, it was effective, and that knowledge still makes a lot of sense to me. It mirrorsrepparttar 137324 eastern or Hindu dimensions and causal planes. The focus on an individual ego having immortal life is perhaps a little stronger than I see it; but I acknowledge I might be wrong. As she putrepparttar 137325 idea forth it seems there is a multi-dimensional and multiple personality, which might include a million souls in various timeframes and other planetary planes or causal (material) points of reference. Thus our soul will learn in each of these frames of reference and become more complete when inrepparttar 137326 spiritual dimensions or non-causal frames. The interview with L. Ron Jr. didn't deal withrepparttar 137327 soul transference or immortality issue as much as some other cult deprogrammers like Jon Atack and Rick Ross or ex-Scientologist officials who have escapedrepparttar 137328 clutches of this mind control cult (Jesse Prince, Fishman et al.). In these reports it is clear L. Ron Jr. thinks there is a good chance Crowley continues to be part ofrepparttar 137329 entity or soul that was his father, because he saysrepparttar 137330 date Scientology began isrepparttar 137331 day Crowley died.

That death was no ordinary event. An autopsy was performed on Crowley before his body was cremated. We must wonder why it was cremated and that Crowley had been an MI-6 operative in British Intelligence. This is especially true because I've heard and read that his interior organs were twisted and jumbled withrepparttar 137332 intestines wrapped around them as if a force had caused a terrible death from inside his own body. There was no exterior reason for this configuration ofrepparttar 137333 organs. It is possible thatrepparttar 137334 body had some issue withrepparttar 137335 ritualistic action and intent of these two sorcerers who were in league. If Crowley intended to continue his achievement of power (Hubbard assures us he'll be back or already is, not a very pleasant thought.) in another person he may well have takenrepparttar 137336 advice or recommendation of Jack Parsons (a chemist on rocket fuel with JPL or other government contractors in Southern California, who headedrepparttar 137337 OTO Temple in L.A.). Hubbard clearly was a great follower of Crowley from early life and would have done anything to associate with him in this manner.

As I see itrepparttar 137338 body has a solar self or aura that doesn't always agree withrepparttar 137339 brain or ego. The acts of these two, do not speak to soulful attunements. They would not have hadrepparttar 137340 agreement of any soul that was ascended or connected to higher dimensions, so they had to overcomerepparttar 137341 disagreement of their souls. It would have been a big issue withrepparttar 137342 body about to lose its' soul (Crowley). Inrepparttar 137343 case withrepparttar 137344 mother/daughter it would be easier ifrepparttar 137345 psychics are right about soulful genetic connections in different times and lives. Crowley andrepparttar 137346 other villains mentioned will appear inrepparttar 137347 'heroes' section of this encyclopedia and their retinue of deviates will grow or associate with many other heads ofrepparttar 137348 gorgon known as Medusa.
