Hi TJ,

Not sure what you mean.  How did the things that happened have nothing to do with scripture?  Is that not what the New Testament scriptures were writing about?

Michael

They became what we now know as scripture , but before this there was no such thing as scripture

Dear TJ,

So which one is better? 

God bless,

Michael

After Pentecost, the apostles lived from a day to day experience of the Holy Spirit revealing himself to them, and then going and doing as he led. I suspect it was quite some time before anyone started writing it down, and then quite some time later that these new writings became called scripture.

To me it has to be far better to be part of the doing, than just reading about it later.
The activity of the Holy Spirit is meant to be lived, not just read about. Far too many christians read the scriptures as a history lesson.
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

Okay, from my own personal point of view, when I was struggling to understand a Christian friend used modern day analogies, things I could relate to personally. I guess they were using like modern day parables/stories - which I could understand. I know God works through such :D if He chooses to anyways  :D

Your post had me thinking of a reply I did on a post of seekers a few weeks back, on how can I escape my past... http://www.1faith.co.uk/safeplace-for-newbie-and-wannabie-christians/can-you-ever-escape-your-past/msg52673/#msg52673

I will copy my answer here

I know when my mind wanders to try and basically self condemn other things of the past, I need to remind myself of God's Truth in the situation, which in a way you have...or spiritual affirmations, i.e. If the Son sets you free, you are free indeed.  Even though we might be living in a situation of 'consequence', you should be able to hold onto God's peace in it, knowing He has set you free from the cause of it.

Now to the others reminding you of things from the past...people can be used by satan as much as God, and if they are reminding you of the past in a condemnatory way, then know that is not of God. 

God can and will bring healing to past memories...Jehovah Rophe...the Lord heals.

Your thread also had me thinking about scripture where it says something along the lines of a prophet wouldn't be welcome in their home town.

So basically in relating that to this topic, maybe people wouldn't accept someone's faith, leading, revelation, whatever faith wise insert here, if they are aware of your history. 
They cant accept what Truth you may possess because they don't respect you and still in their mind hold you 'guilty' of the past, even though we have gone through the 'judicial' process as laid out in Romans, and been set free to become born again as sons and daughters, children of God, or the Kingdom of God's heirs...we are ambassadors for God in reconciliation. Luke 4:18

Hi Michael,

It might help us to know what your ideas for the third and final reformation might actually involve. On a practical level, what is it that you want people to do in helping you 'start this fire'?

best wishes

The only true safety we have is in God.  That safety is our salvation. 

Yes salvation / walking in the "Now Word/Holy Spirit" brings opposition and is unsafe
