In Response To: Re: YHVH (discipleofthenile)
Well, I do not really know what you are trying to do or say, this reasoning may be above or below your head. I think most people in this international audience of black reasoning, are qualified to know, that water is a literal substance, which we all can see, and which we use from day to day, in the form of drinking, cooking, bathing, watering our gardens, we also see water literally when it rains, we see water when we go by the see shores, or by the river, it is a literal substance which we can see and which we use from time to time on a daily basis. It is a literal substance, which we can take up in bucket or cup and drink.
Fire is also a literal manifestatation which we see and use from time to time, we use fire to cook our food, to heat our houses in the form of electricity and other ways and means, fire is also visible when there is a house on fire, and the water men, who they call firemen, race to the scene, to put the fire out, in order to save lives and property, so do not try to tell this audience, that the fire is not literally seen, when there is a fire in your community, and what do they use to put our the fire but water, because heat air and water is creationally related, they are the greatest source of power in this universe, and that is both positive as well as negative.
The earth upon which we live, we do see it literally everyday, we walk upon the earth, we live upon the earth, we build our houses, schools, hospitals, clinics and various kinds of social, cultural and governmental amenities upon this earth. We plant fruit trees and various kinds of food upon, or into the earth, and we reap them literally and eat them literally. I really do not know about you, but as for me, and I assume most people, who live upon the face of this earth, do see it literally as they live from day to day. The earth is also used to bury people and other creatures, since the earth is our dining table, which nourishes us and cause us to live and survive, along with the help of heat air and water, and therefore, there is absolutely no reason why we should not see the earth literally.
As for fresh Air, I have never remembering being able to see it, but I do feel it when it enters into my nostrils, and flow down into my lungs, now since you are a person who seems to know much about spirits, then you can tell this audience, when and where have you seen fresh air, since you are telling us here, that air is a spirit, then you must have seen it, so I am interested, to hear from you, where and when did you see fresh air, because I do not think air is visible to all people, but it may be visible to those of you who can see spirits, I am not one of them, so it would be good if you are able to edify me in that area. I do think that you will have a great audience, if you do teach us somethings about spirit, I don't think that there are many people who have seen spirits, I have never seen a spirit in my life time, this is new knowledge to me, so please tell me, what this audience can do, in order to see air, which I imagine you must have seen, to have spoken with such great authority.
Anyway, let me tell you, what I have learned from others, about what spirit is, they say spirit is a attitude, a mood, a behaviour, so a person may be described as having a good spirit, if that person is kind, loving, caring for others, and is able to get along with most people without having contentions, with almost every person who they meet and have to deal with. They told me, that such a person would be described as a good spirited person.
The bad spirited person, is that person, who is always starting trouble with other people, even people who they do not know. They just think that it is their duty to make trouble every where they go, and with any person that they see, and some times they get hurt, because they run into another person like unto themselves, who has bad spirit, bad attitudes and bad behaviour, and then both of them becomes so hot in contention, and there is no water around to put out that fire of bad spirit. Thank you for you response, I do hope that we can lift this reasoning to a higer standard.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere
