My questions
#1
I have many questions that pop up everyday in my mind, things about myself and Christianity, I dont even know where to start, but in essence I just want to get answers to them, thereby guiding me to becoming a better Christian.

1.)Are Christians supposed to really celebrate Christmas or not? Some denominations don't, the church that I first joined when I decided to become a Christian, they don't, saying its not a Christian celebration, including easter and the likes, but my present church does.

2.)when people say they are going to mountains to pray, do they really go to climb physical mountains or locking themselves up somewhere to pray(as I feel so) ? I have heard people talking about these mountains like its a real mountain they climb

3.)when they say "pray in spirit" , what is this all about really? Is it praying in tongues or something else? Sir throw more light on this. Thanks

Pardon my naivety, I'm still a bit novice, you know my pedigree. Still have many more questions.

Quote:1.)Are Christians supposed to really celebrate Christmas or not? Some denominations don't, the church that I first joined when I decided to become a Christian, they don't, saying its not a Christian celebration, including easter and the likes, but my present church does.

Answer : it depends on how you see it,from your own perspective but celebrating jesus should and shouldn't be about the day (25th Dec) but he must be celebrated as a reminder of his sacrifice(s) for us, and resurrection of our lord jesus..if you are indeed his follower. Infact, celebration of Jesus should a daily thing but the date "Christmas " is aim to bring Christians together under one umbrella to celebrating jesus. But it's not all that necessary especially on the date but in our lives, soul and service to him, the kingdom of God everyday.

Satisfied?

Yes! And all of the above but the common one and generally believed as mountain as these ones you described above and how you described them : some mountains are indeed a big, top rocky mountains, some a vast of land with some rocky sides here and there, while some are a very high but must climb mountains for prayers. In all, these varies base on the owner and the type you embark on or choose but are all mountains. So, yes! To your questions.



Quote:3.)when they say "pray in spirit" , what is this all about really? Is it praying in tongues or something else? Sir throw more light on this

1.) From the Bible, there are many names of our God, who is the creator of the heavens and earth and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, He told Moses that His name is I Am Who I Am, other parts of the Bible refer to him with so many names, El Elyon- most high, El Shaddai - Almighty, YahWeh-Lord, Jehovah-..., Elohim, etc, these I found on internet and religious materials. When I experience His presence, I hear myself speaking in a loud voice saying "I'm a prophetess of the Most High God". I prefer to call him by one of these names when in prayer or I say Father.
1.)What's is His true and main name ?
2.)Am I right by calling Him by His names?
3.)Am I right or wrong if I feel referring to Him as Lord, is too general and not specific?
4.)Atimes I also feel preferring to refer to Him by name may be a disrespectful attitude of mine.?

2.)Sorry I'm bringing this up here again, as you and me have discussed this a little before, you also interpreted a dream of mine where you said God was saying I am afraid of my annointing, for real I am afraid most times, let's take the case of speaking in tongues now, I read on the question and answer section here, you told someone that demons possess people and they think their tongues is from God and that's when they speak tongues of repetition of words, that even you were a victim, since I read that I have been kind of troubled, because my own tongues is repetition of words, not words actually but I would say syllabus - bababababa dededededededesh... Few times re ge de or li..., what do you say in this case, since it's repetition? I want to be on the right track. Apart from that, the way the tongues come out is so forceful, it's not something I can wish to start, though when it starts I can forcefully try to suppress it or lower the loudness, many atimes it causes my whole body to tremble, my right hands, though I may not be feeling heat or cold but it will feel I'm cold and at the same time I'm sweating, atimes when I do violent prayers, even when the prayers have ended, my body will be trembling for as long as full day, and if I free myself, I could just continue speaking in tongues, atimes when I'm even reading somethings or hear something or someone is singing (Godly song, I will then be thinking if it's a bad spirit reacting against the song or it's the spirit of God in me liking the song) these vibrations will start with the tongues, many times it will be as if I'm crying, I won't even know why I'm crying, sometimes it will be as if I'm crying and it will be loud, my mom and siblings get scared and worried till now about these, there are some songs they avoid to sing when we are praying together as family, because I will start trembling and wanting to shout... Pardon me that I am asking you to talk about it again, but I will not lie to you, atimes I accept it, atimes I fear it, atimes I'm very baffled, mainly because I have not seen such in my life before, I have not elaborated it like this to you before and now I have read here that repetition of words is not real one. Please guide me, I'm so much naive in all these.
Thank you sir.

3.) while reading the bible, I came across "urim and thummim", exodus 28:30, 34:30, Leviticus 16:8..., please what are they?

1. He's every name you call him above, infact God is every thing/name you call him as long as your heart adores sing,or praise him while doing so. God only sees and examines our inner man : the praises and worships of our heart while calling or referring God to these adorable or known names for him.

If you like call him beautiful, wonderful, handsome God or even my treasure or whatever you choose all that matters is it must be borne out of love for God and worship unto him.





2. Indeed, I wrote that but there are some rare cases just like yours,and signs to back it up that these repetition are signs that it's from God and you are undergoing spiritual growth such as these :

Quote:the way the tongues come out is so forceful, it's not something I can wish to start, though when it starts I can forcefully try to suppress it or lower the loudness, many atimes it causes my whole body to tremble, my right hands, though I may not be feeling heat or cold but it will feel I'm cold and at the same time I'm sweating, atimes when I do violent prayers, even when the prayers have ended, my body will be trembling for as long as full day, and if I free myself, I could just continue speaking in tongues, atimes when I'm even reading somethings or hear something or someone is singing (Godly song, I will then be thinking if it's a bad spirit reacting against the song or it's the spirit of God in me liking the song) these vibrations will start with the tongues, many times it will be as if I'm crying, I won't even know why I'm crying, sometimes it will be as if I'm crying and it will be loud



Everything you wrote above has proven that indeed such is among the few rare ones : signs that you are still a toddler in that field..but Surely? In speaking in true tongue.
Mind you, if it was demonic I would have known, it would have been revealed to you as well.

You'll recall, a week or few days before you received the holy spirit I told you you would hence I prophesied and we did some prayers which led to it manifestation. You Remember? O yes ! The lord instructed me to do that for you so that you may receive the holy spirit and become too strong for your enemies..that was what gave birth to these..


Sure you recall?



3. There were many old words, material things all sort used during the Era of old testament that no longer in existence,or had been renamed in our contemporary world such as : hysop, flocks or kedar et al.

The above mention are few among the old materials or ingredient for..

This should help explaining and given you the symbol of it and where it was mentioned, what they were used for along with :


Quote:26 And thou shalt make [b]two rings of gold, and thou shalt put them upon the two ends of the breastplate in the border thereof, which is in the side of the ephod inward.[/b]

Quote:30 And thou shalt put in the [b]breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be [/b]

Observe mine above, and your own verse below it. What do you see?

So yes, mind gives a better explanation of the use and essence of the two words(materials) and what they were being use for.





Bless you.
