KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUPREME SELF

images-9-1

CHAPTER VI KNOWLEDGE  OF  THE  SUPREME  SELF SUPREME SELF:In this chapter is described the method of realizing the Self. When the mind in the form of the ego, which takes the body for the Self and strays outwards, is curbed within the Heart the sense of ‘I’ in the body relinquished, and enquiry made with a still mind as to who it is that dwells in the body, a subtle illumination will be experienced as ‘I-I’ which is no other than the Absolute, SUPREME SELF:the Self, seated in the lotus…

God’s Knowledge of the Future Is Unlimited

In the last few decades a movement has developed within Christianity that has come to be known by the term ‘open theism’. Proponents of this view believe that God’s knowledge of the future is limited. They argue in this way: God gives human beings genuine free will (often known as libertarian free will or contra-causal free will); if God knew all the future, the future would be fixed, and a fixed future is incompatible with humans having genuine free will; therefore God cannot know everything that will happen in the…

Are Earthquakes Signs of the End Times?

Has an unusual increase in the frequency of big earthquakes afflicted civilizations in the last decades of the twentieth century? Is the supposed global increase in big earthquakes a fulfillment of prophetic statements concerning the “end of the age” made by Jesus? Contrary to the opinions of many prophecy teachers, global and regional earthquake data argue that big earthquakes have been decreasing in frequency through the twentieth century. Moreover, no clear scriptural warrant exists for the notion that earthquakes will increase in frequency just before the tribulation period and the…

The Marks of a Spiritual Leader

I define spiritual leadership as knowing where God wants people to be and taking the initiative to use God’s methods to get them there in reliance on God’s power. The answer to where God wants people to be is in a spiritual condition and in a lifestyle that display his glory and honor his name. Therefore, the goal of spiritual leadership is that people come to know God and to glorify him in all that they do. Spiritual leadership is aimed not so much at directing people as it is…

The hiddenness of God

The hiddenness of God:Why isn’t God more obvious? This question is often asked in many ways and in many contexts. When prayers go unanswered, why is God silent? When suffering or tragedy strikes, why would God allow this to happen? When struggling over the countless millions who do not know about God revealed in Jesus Christ, why wouldn’t God want more people to know this great, good news? When all the “evidence” seems to counter the biblical narrative, why doesn’t God just give a sign? When God was revealed through…

Faith is just about trusting God isn’t it?

Faith is just about trusting God isn’t it?I’ve been trying to avoid using the word ‘faith’ recently. It just doesn’t get the message across. ‘Faith’ is a word that’s now misused and twisted. ‘Faith’ today is what you try to use when the reasons are stacking up against what you think you ought to believe. Greg Koukl sums up the popular view of faith, ‘It’s religious wishful thinking, in which one squeezes out spiritual hope by intense acts of sheer will. People of ‘faith’ believe the impossible. People of ‘faith’…

Faith For Healing Is Based On Knowledge

At one of my Gospel Truth Seminars, I ministered to a man who had detached retinas. I was standing right in front of him, and he said I was just a blur. With the service about to start, I only had a moment to minister, so I told him to come forward at the end, and one of our prayer ministers would continue the process. He did and, after further ministry, gave a great testimony. Not only could he see me clearly, but he could see the faces of the…

THE BIBLE IS NOT THE WORD OF GOD

The word of God came to me the very first time during an armed-robbery attack. “Femi,” he said, “nothing is going to happen to you here.” Immediately, one of the robbers contradict-ed him by firing a bullet into my left leg. Even so, the word continued: “Femi, there is nothing wrong with your leg.”These words are not in the bible. Nevertheless, they are spirit and life to me. A few weeks after I heard them, the Lord miraculously fused back the broken bones in my leg.

Faith Is A Spiritual Force

Faith is a spiritual force. The flesh reacts to sight, sound, taste, smell, knowledge, and experience. The flesh must be trained to live by obedience to the spirit. It must be told over and over that things are not what they appear to be, they are what God says they are. Heb: 11:1: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. God sees and knows things we cannot see and know by the five physical senses. But we can know that what He…
