In this episode TruthSeekah speaks with Joshua Fluman about his experiences in engaging the prophetic realms and experiences in spiritual warfare. There are many ways that we are able to tap into the spirit realm and do so even unintentionally in our own day to day lives. We talk about the the similarities in the prophetic giftings mentioned in the Bible and also what is known as psychic abilities or E.S.P. (Extra Sensory Perception). These experiences are written within the Bible but the phrasing and terminology is different. As we discuss during other episodes I believe that we are speaking about the same things yet from a different perspective and standpoint and have coined particular terms that seem to be privy to our own personal belief systems, dogmas and religions. I do not believe that any one religion holds all of the answers, even though I am a Christian, I know that what we call christianity today in the west is so far from its original state as a spiritual discipline that it’s not even funny. So, yes, I follow the teachings of Jesus and believe the gospel but many of the interpretations and understands that we have here in the west are no even close to the spirit or even nature of what was trying to be communicated by the writers of those texts. Christianity and spirituality in general should be an inward journey in growing in relationship with God and the divine that it overflows into every are of our lives. There is an importance in going back to study christianity in its original state especially when talking about engaging the prophetic because these gifting and abilities were a part of their daily lives from the prophets, apostles, disciples and even Jesus. These were in fact some of the most spiritual people that have ever walked the face of the planet and I believe that if they needed the prophetic giftings in their day then so do we. Jesus said that greater works shall his disciples do than him because of the infilling of the holy spirit. The very word for power in the scriptures that speaks about being endowed with power when the Holy SPirit comes upon you is the word Dunamis which literally means ‘miracle working power”. Jesus also goes on to say in Mark 16:17-18 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. This is our inheritance as sons and daughters of the most high God we will walk in miracles and see signs and wonders. A huge part of the signs in wonders is learning to hear God’s voice about what he would say to others and there are many ways to tap into hearing his voice inwardly. This is growing in the prophetic and trusting God enough that we are will to step out and reveal his heart towards other in a very practical way.
