    In the spring/summer of 2003, I experienced the following;

    1) I went to God in very serious prayer. A voice answered my prayer. It was God. He let me know, that it was He that spoke.

    2) Several months later, I re-lived my carnal birth, in a vision.

    3) Approximately one month later, I experienced Numbers 12:6 [John 14:21 also?]

    3(a) In the vision, I stood before The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost. I was not allowed to see either The Father or The Holy Ghost, but their presence was made known to me. The Father 'controlled' the vision. Two 'identical' figures appeared, dressed in white robes. I recognized Christ, but was confused by the second figure, on whose right that He stood. It was Jesus, as The Lord God Almighty...our Father in heaven. The Son as The Lord God Almighty, is The Son of The Father. The Son as Christ, is The Son [Son of Man] of Himself [My Father and I are one], in the same way, that we can become sons/daughters of God.

    3(b) In the dream that followed, many things were shown to me. I spent six and a half years reading scriptures, searching history/religions, communicating with ministers of all 'one-god' faiths, and visiting many Protestant churches. In the dream, I was told that 'there was something broken', and I volunteered to 'fix' that which was broken. The 'figure' in the dream asked me if I thought that I could handle it. I said, "Yes." I was awakened, and using my thoughts, I was told to write the dream down. God was referring to the different 'bibles' that have been created, and are leading His sheep astray. He did not 'anoint' anyone, in order to create these 'bibles'.

    I was afraid that it was satan who was trying to make me into a 'false prophet'. I went to God in prayer. He told me that satan cannot 'reproduce' Numbers 12:6, because if he could, then Numbers 12:6 would mean nothing.

    I went to God in prayer again, and asked Him, "who or what, am I?" He replied immediately, using my thoughts, and told me, "I am who I am."

    I only have one 'job' to do. Get rid of these other 'bibles'! I have no prophesy powers. I cannot speak in multiple languages. I cannot perform miracles. :jesus:

    No you are not a prophet or an apostle but a deceived man who has been beguiled by Satan into thinking what you saw was of God. Satan's prophets claim visions as well. There are more Biblical tests than merely one to try self-proclaimed prophets. Jesus is not a separate being than Christ - that is a doctrine of the spirit of antichrist (1 Jn. 4:1-6).

    That's a great story.

    So, since you cannot speak other languages, your task is limited to English versions?

    You say you have no prophesy powers, yet, you just prophesied about your mission.

    How are you to get rid of these other Bibles exactly? Go to the source, the publishers themselves, and convince them to stop the presses?

    How will you get rid of all the other versions that people have right now? Door to door? City wide rallies to burn them?

    What about the electronic versions? How will you get rid of them as well?

    Have you employed any other persons to help you?

    Which will be the only version left after you are done?

    You are not a prophet or an apostle.

    You are either:

    1. A very deceived person of Satan

    2. A kook

    3. A troll

    4. All of the above

    I'd be seriously worried and concerned if I had such a vision.

    It's probably safe to conclude that Thorwald is a KJVOnlyist. Thorwald claims he was seeking some spiritual experience, most likey this agenda had a preplanned objective to prove the KJV is the only "real" Bible. I see nowhere in NT Scriptures where we are told to seek a sign. In this incident it looks as if Thorwald was seeking a sign to prove that his choice of version is endorsed by God above all other versions.

    Pretending his experience was real, did satan or another being give him the sign he requested?

    That would be scary to say the least.

    Another theory, probably more likely and one that is along a more sober note is that he made the entire thing up and perhaps is trolling as well.

    Is there an extent that KJVOnlists won't go to to "prove" their theory? And, what is it with KJVOnlyists infatuation whith spiritism, satan, demons, UFO's, signs &c???


    - Peace

    Both the office of an apostle and that of a prophet ceased by the end of the first century, so you are neither.
    Given that information, I would conclude you are a false teacher.

    Do you have anything else to say for yourself?

    What does KJO have to do with spiritualism, demons, and UFOs? If I remember correctly, you started a thread on demons. Many folks who are not KJO related experiences. There was also a thread on UFOs sometime back, and many folks who are not KJO related they had experiences in this area. Quite frankly, I have had experiences in both areas, but I don't think it has anything to do with my being KJO. And I am certainly not obsessed with these subjects, I have never started a thread on either subject. But if someone asks my experiences, I will tell them the truth.

    There was probably more folks who are not KJO that had experiences in these areas than not. And you were one of them!

    You further support my contention that KJVOnlyists are infatuated with such things.

    For the record, I was never a KJVO.

    I don't think he can hear you;

    "Cry aloud...Either he is musing, or he is relieving himself, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep and must be awakened." 1 Kings 18:17

    I know you are not KJO, but you started a thread concerning spiritualism not long ago. It was your GAYDAR thread.

    http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?t=74854

    And I hardly see how pointing out that many folks who are not KJO have related both spiritual and UFO experiences in the past supports you.

    Starting a thread or two doesn't equate to infatuation. Infatuation and obsession would be akin to a person starting thread after thread to attack Calvinism, or demean it in some way, or any other subject, but I use Calvinism because this is one that is a legit illustration and isn't hypothetical.

    That's one you could say is obsessed and it's plain just not healthy. :thumbsup:

    Before you say my threads I start are related to this mostly, you better take a look at the facts.

    I need no support, nor was my post made for this reason whatsoever. I've seen an infatuation from KJVOnlyists, and so I made the statement.

    First of all, I have no problem with the thread you started. What I do have a problem with is you implying that KJOs are all nut cases.

    I have learned this, do not easily dismiss experiences others relate to you. They may very well be telling you the absolute truth. There is no way to know. Now, I'm not saying Thorwald's dream was a real dream from God the way folks in the OT received dreams like this, but he may be telling the truth that he had this dream. All you can do is test an experience like this against scripture.

    But there are lots of wierd things happening in the world. My best friend is the most down to earth fellow you would ever know, but he had a very strange experience with his older brother when he was a young teen. His brother was driving, he was the passenger, when suddenly an elderly man appeared directly in their path. His brother braked hard but struck the man. The man flew up on the hood, and my friend says he will never forget the old man's face pressed on the windshield directly in front of him. When the car stopped the old man was thrown forward off the car. They both jumped out to help the man, but he was nowhere to be found. They looked and looked, but could not find the man. They went home and immediately told their parents. The funny thing is, they knew the elderly man, he was a neighbor. And they saw him afterward in the neighborhood and the man was fine.

    Now, my friend says this happened, and to this day 40 years later his brother and he still talk about it. My friend is a good honest Christian very involved in the church. He is very sober, he has never had a single drink in his entire life, no drugs, no cigarettes, nothing. He is happily married with two wonderful sons who also are very active in our church. My friend is no nut case, and I absolutely believe his story because I have known him for years and know him to be a very honest fellow.

    So, at least investigate a little bit before your ridicule folks. You never know. I have learned this the hard way, and perhaps you will too.

    It may seem I implied they all do. Not all, just a significant portion of them. You have to admit that they are obsessed with these things as well, just not all of them.

    Was I incorrect to dismiss the OP in this thread as invalid and not of God? Or should I accept it and act as if it's interesting and agree with what happened?

    I've had a couple experiences. Due to this, I don't chase these things, nor do I tend to think of them often, that is, the dark side, UFO's &c. Some people seek for a "spiritual experience" and satan will certainly be allowed to give them one. Take note that this experience centers around the KJV. That's why I bring up the valid point of obsession and infatuation from them with these things.

    OK.

    I don't need to investigate. The vision he has is as I said. It is unscriptural for one, secondly he had an objective for a version and this as proof to support a version, thirdly, we aren't to meddle in these things, nor are we to seek signs, which is exactly what he did.

    Thus, there is no need for me to investigate further. God gave me the good sense and discernment to realize it is false, and to not meddle in darkness, nor with those who profess these things or partake in them.

    - Peace

    You are still not getting it. I am not asking you to believe the man received some sort of direct revelation from God. What I am saying is you shouldn't accuse folks of being nut cases unless you really know the person, and you shouldn't label everyone who is KJO as a nut case because some MAY be nuts. I promise you, there are many folks who use other versions that are nuts. Trust me.

    So, quit trying to deflect. The problem I had with you is implying that folks who are KJO are crazy. You know that, but you will deflect.

    I've never labeled anyone "nut case." The fact is though that many KJVOnlyists are as I described; obsessed and infatuated with the dark side. If that means "nut case" to you, then sobeit. It is you, not I, labeling them as such.

    You need to lose your pejoratives, OK? I never called anyone a nut case, you brought that in here all on your own. If facts make this term appear in your mind, keep it to yourself.

    You also brought along the ridicule piece all on your own, both are accusatory terms. If you really want to get on someone for these things, there are other posts here that draw the same conclusions as I do about this OP.

    Put an end to your pugnacious attitude, there is no need to bring in these terms. This is typical you though, always, bringing in the labels, name-calling. Why not grow out of this behavior of yours?

    I contend there are just as many non-KJVOists that are as you described as well. What does that say for you MVers?

    Thorwald, no, you are not a Prophet, nor are you an Apostle.

    However, if you are hearing voices, please, seek professional psychiatric help immediately. Auditory hallucinations such as hearing voices is a primary symptom of schizophrenia and other mood disorders.

    Please, seek professional help immediately. There are many new medications that can be useful in helping alleviate your symptoms.
