A few years ago, someone else laid something like 30 fleeces before Yahweh to be sure he was walking in the right path when he was granted a wife, a perfect wife (('relatively'?; Yahweh's Choice )).
Yahweh granted EVERY condition ((I think, this is from memory)). His testimony is elsewhere on the forum, fleeces and all, unless it got lost. And THEY are VERY HAPPY, MARRIED !
i.e. Yahweh not only said "YES!", but VERY DRAMATICALLY !
The same thing has been happening all along ((by other )), and was exposed, over a hundred years ago -- what 'he' is saying might be somewhat correct, but totally for deceptive purposes - not at all in pursuit of the Truth....
There are some people not all, that God is bringing forth and they have a very specific role to play in his plan, Abraham, Issac, Jacob, jojeph, Moses, David, Samuel,and many others even from the Gentiles, that interacted with, and Jonh the Baptist, and Mother Mary, Peter, and so on.
But he did not deprived them from their lives, they also leaved their lives, I think but one, Jonh the Baptist.
God new that only through his Christ man can be resuracted from the dead and be one with him. There is no any other way, it is not possible. God new from the very begining, this was the only way, and he also new how it is going to happen. (the seed of the woman),
He new that every one will hear the Gospel and be given the change to believe, no matter when they were born.
That's why Jesus died for all,or there is only one way to the Father.
God he also new that no every one will believe.
Man decides for his own fate, there deferent forces that play a role in someones decision, but it is a fair and equal opportunity for everyone.
The same intervasion of God to cause faith in someone,, can also cause unbelieve in someone else.
God puts the good seed to lead to faith, and another one comes at a secret time and he puts another seed that will lead to unbelieve.
The one comes and puts a seed of unbelieve, then God comes and he puts a seed to believe.
Something happens, and causes people to come closer to God, and the same even causes people to go away from God.
All forces work in all posible ways to persuade man, he is spiritual and phycical, and they work in both realms to persuade man.
The Holy Spirit because of Jesus is working to help people to choose the way of Christ, and also we.
We are the Holy Spirits helpers, when we put the seed in people about Jesus Christ, and at the same time the Holy Spirit is our guide and our helper,
The Holy Spirit knows the enemy all the time, we need the help of the Holy Spirit who works with people when we are sleeping, or we are busy with something else.
That's how i understand these matter today, tomorrow in the future it remains a mystery. Who can tell?
When, in the days of Noah, did anyone do what is right ? And where ?
Likewise, in s and g ?
This leads to the inevitable question, or conclusion, today.
That being what it is, what manifestation is pertinent ? i.e. what "is not" a manifestation, as you put it, of
the force or the devil or evil and wickedness, error, departure from truth, etc, TODAY ?
Remembering Jesus said a few days ago ((1985 x 365 , roughly)) that
HE was sending out HIS disciples like sheep into the midst of ravenous wolves ....
Which brings up the corollary, perhaps, i.e. same question, what was 'right' in 4B.C. to 30A.D. and surrounding years?
Aye, and actually, was it ever not ? In some ways/ perspectives anyway...... from what Scripture says...
