I'll go ahead and take the clobbering that may come, hoping there aren't any accusations of being a medium or anything like that from this. The Scriptures say to test yourselves to see whether or not Jesus Christ is within you. Remember that verse I'm just citing on this from 2Corinthians 13 throughout what I'm about to say. I love a lot of the more accurate translations, but I think they miss a great truth when they don't follow the same rendering as the KJV in Philippians 1 where Paul called the Philippian Church "partakers of his grace." Trying to choose my words carefully here. Jesus said when you came under pressure to not premeditate what you would say because the spirit of your father would speak through you. He told some that their father was the devil, and hence they were manifesting his deeds. Jesus spoke of His words and deeds virtually interchangeably as proceeding from His Father.
There is such a thing as the transference of spirits, such as in Acts 19:11-12 and numerous other passages of Scripture, warnings about inappropriate, ill-timed laying on of hands, etc. Jesus said that if we've continued in His Word, then we'd continue in the Word of those He was sending. Jesus said it would be the spirit of your father speaking through you. Some in the New Testament are either referred to as, or refer to themselves as fathers. So, although that's true in the ultimate sense about it being your heavenly Father that'll speak through you if you've been a good disciple and have really really had the Word layered out in your mouth, thoughts, and lifestyle to the place of fullness that Matthew 12:34 and countless other passages talks about -- it goes a bit deeper than that. And I'm thinking that this is where some of the confusion over reincarnation has partially come from, with negative manifestations of this in the Kingdom of darkness -- and there being only darkness over there rather than light from the Kingdom of light, they don't know what makes them stumble as it says in Proverbs.
There is a place in the regular confession of God's Written Word until you've really layered your inner man with it, and in your listening to the preached Word through someone God is having to father you in the spirit, to where you'll begin to manifest their spirit as well as the Spirit of your heavenly Father, which is why St. Paul was very stringent on the characteristics of a qualified minister when it came to purity, sound in the Word, and other things. And for those that view the woman in Scripture as a picture of the soul, and particularly the carnal soul, then his forbiding of woman preachers in the light of what I'm saying should speak volumes to you, that it's not a gender issue by any remote stretch in the least, but a spiritual transference issue. You become a partaker of their grace if you regularly hearken to the Word proceeding through them and act upon every aspect of it that's within your understanding from the Holy Spirit to act upon as it lines up for you with the Written Word and the Anointing on your life. God's Spirit being transfered, yes, but God's grace as revealed through their lives as well.
There have been times in sharing the Word in various different contexts where it wasn't just the Spirit of Jesus Christ sharing through me, but I was aware, [tangibly aware,] of the presence and even manifestation on me of St. Paul, St. John, Kenneth Copeland, and Elhanan Winchester at various different times and in various different contexts. And not all of the time, but occasionally that "cloud of witnesses" Hebrews talks about would seemingly manifest, particularly if it was the grace on them manifesting through me at the given moment -- whether they were physically among us, as in the case of Kenneth Copeland, or not as in my referrence to the others. Besides the Holy Spirit, those have been the only accompanying witnesses that I've been aware of as manifesting through me as I've shared in various different contexts different things from the Written Word. Jesus Christ and our heavenly Father first and primarily ALWAYS and I wasn't "trying to" make the other happen along the way, though I did become aware of it in 1992 or 1993 with someone having taught me this principle of being a partaker of someone's grace "in the defense and confirmation of the Gospel" and the Gospel is confirmed with signs following according to the last verse of Mark's Gospel. I was just enjoying the Written Word primarily and the preached Word besides and a book by Elhanan Winchester that God had drawn my attention to for quite a while before I finally got it and read it a few times, and rejoiced in the grace of God and the increase in clarity that I was receiving on the message of UR.
But in my pursuit of the Word and of the Holy Spirit and in being lead by the Word and the Holy Spirit through my intense devotion to the Written Word to a Bible teacher or two along the way, the transference of grace happened in my life to where not only was grace multiplied into my life through knowledge, as it says at the start and close of 2Peter and I believe one or two other places it's either directly stated or implied depending on the translation, but literally the spirit of anyone that's been a father to me has LITERALLY manifested through me. St. Paul told the Colossian Church in Philemon that if they count him as a partner, then they should receive Onesimus as they would receive him. Now, I realize that those that tend to be "St. Paul only" in their interpretation of Scripture might choke and spit on that one, or swallow hard, but it's in there in verse 17. It was that this principle that I'm sharing was understood this way, and why I believe the KJV has the correct rendering in Philippians 1 on "partakers of my grace." I believe I could go into much more Scripture on this, "prophet's reward" passages, etc., but this subject right here and negative counterparts to it are likely where some of the genuine confusion over reincarnation have come from with people becoming aware of a heritage manifesting in front of them in different contexts.
