(SVS) But this (for me) is always a little suspect “The Lord spoke the words in my post, they are not mine. So then, they are to be obeyed and followed, as should His words in the NT be obeyed and followed” (Tim).
There is an equation of what Tim says/writes that puts his stuff on the same level with the Tanakh/gospels/letters. However, within the writings we see this is not quite true. The quotes of Tim are always harkening back to the Tanakh/gospels/letters as authoritative and he isn’t elaborating on anything new (but more like a bible study on a topic).
But (for me) I have to raise concern on the issue, should I consider my blog inspired by God? It’s most definitely inspired by the interaction with the word of God (as is the writings I see above) and with the living of my faith (experiences). But I do not claim any extra authority on the issue except that I follow Jesus’ teachings and elaborate on them. I know Tim you won’t agree with me on this but I am just raising the obvious questions which need to be in place.
(Tim) Jason, it is this simple and I will never say otherwise: This blog is not inspired it is the Word of the Lord, literally. I hear the voice of the Lord and write down what He says. Period…thats it…no discussion, no debate. It is like dictation, He dictates I write, unless I indicate otherwise in the Letter or post.
So then, should you test what I have written down according to the scriptures? Yes, I have helped with this, Biblically, in my “Discernment of True and False Prophets” blog. Is the Word I am sharing with you the Word of the Lord from His mouth? Yes. Is it equal to the Bible most definitely!..same Author. Rather the issue is not with me, (I know Who speaks to me and that what He says is True) the issue lies with those to whom I share God’s words, in the receiving…to believe or believe not. I have delivered the message as the Lord had commanded me.
How do you digest this discussion – let me know? Feel like adding another book to your bible?
