II. Revelation, Time and Miracles, P 5
5 Revelations are indirectly inspired by me because I am close to the Holy Spirit, and alert to the revelation-readiness of my brothers. I can thus bring, down to them more than they can draw down to themselves. The Holy Spirit mediates higher to lower communication, keeping the direct channel from God to you open for revelation. Revelation is not reciprocal. It proceeds from God to you, but not from you to God.
Reading about revelation and hearing from those who have experienced revelations I cannot help but desire this experience for myself, but I accept that since I have not done so yet, it is not time for this to happen. Jesus says he is alert to my level of readiness. He says he can inspire revelation when it is time. I trust Jesus. Revelation will occur when it will be a blessing to me. Well, I did have one brief experience of unspeakable love, that I no words to describe, so maybe I have had that experience at least once.
We are told that the Holy Spirit mediates higher to lower communication which I take to mean from God to me. Another word for mediate is facilitate. I like that word because I understand facilitating. I facilitate courses for my students. This is different than teaching them. As a facilitator I don’t tell my students how they should see the lessons; I witness, encourage and guide. I make it easier for them to do the lessons.
When Jesus knows the time is right he will inspire revelation and then bring it down to me. The Holy Spirit, Who keeps the channel from God to me open, will make it easier for me to experience revelation. My sense is that revelation readiness may depend on how much the fear of God has been loosened. But really, I don’t know.
I looked up revelation in the dictionary. It says: the revealing of something previously hidden or secret. Or, in Christianity, a showing or revealing of what is believed to be divine will or truth. So when Jesus says that revelation is from God to me and not from me to God, I have to laugh. I will assume I don’t have any secrets to reveal to God, or any divine truth that is unknown to Him. ~smile~
Note: Jesus says, “I am close to the Holy Spirit…” I found that interesting.
