Undressing the Holy Spirit!

Simple Truth

Who can deny that the problem with religion is that it has become all dressed up! The only way to find what you might call the naked Truth about anything so-called holy is for a start to undress the word itself. Anyone who searches their mind when they think of a word like “Holy” will more than likely conjure up religious scenes of church services, droning organs, monodrone sounds of singing, and priests dressed up in religious gowns; all of this pictured as being flat and dull rather than being alive and colourful. If you picture any colours attached to the word “Holy” then you might find your mind going back to the days of black & white TV or black & white movies so all in all, the word “Holy” conjures up in the mind a pretty dull and sobering damp cloth putting out the fire old rag. You get the picture in your mind that they have been using this old damp cloth for decades now and all it ever did was just that, throw a damp cloth on the fire. I suppose we’re all supposed to picture that human nature is like some kind of wild fire and it has to be dampened down by some kind of holiness and Holy Spirit that will lead and guide us into all Truth; Truth being something that contains us and imprisons us and holds our fiery lusts intact, so much so that we are dead!

So then, where do we go from here? Ok, I’ve gone along with your damp cloth and holy sobering ceremony and here I am dead to the flesh and some kind of a living corpse so where do I go from here? Are you sure that you are getting this right, that that’s what it’s all about? Maybe I should forget everything they told me in the church and simply look into these words myself and become as Jesus said, as a little child, and forget all of this religious paraphernalia that people have cluttered up my mind with, forget all of these crazy scenes and all the madness that religion has to offer these days, forget all of the holy Joes and all the the holy mumbo jumbo and even all of the madness that you see on the Internet these days that might clutter up a person’s day or even their whole life; maybe I should simply pick up a dictionary and look up the word “Holy” myself and see what that word means and see these things through the eyes of a child as Jesus told us to do! I’ve read somewhere that it says, “Unto the pure all things are pure:” so yes, I’ll marry these two points of view together. Little children have pure minds, they haven’t had their minds messed up like all of us adults so if little children come to Jesus then in that same sense all things will be pure, especially if they are receiving the pure words of Jesus and especially if they are operating under the pure and naked Truth of the Holy Spirit.

“Please Jesus, send to me your pure and naked Holy Spirit and let her speak unto me and lead and guide me into all Truth!”

 Now, what does the word “Holy” mean? Well, you do what a lot of people do and you look in the dictionary and you do your best to try to get back to the original word and that might even mean going back to the Hebrew word for Holy which according to this dictionary translation here means: To be set apart, to be separated! So when you think of God’s Holy Spirit then you are in this sense picturing a separated spirit, a spirit that is completely separate from everything else and everyone else and in a class of its own and the Holy Spirit is sometimes called the Holy Ghost, so again, you find yourself thinking of a separated ghost. You could say that we are all ghosts as every one of us is a ghost or in other words, a spirit; we have a body but we are mainly a ghost or a spirit but sad to say our spirits are not altogether pure because we’ve all allowed ourselves to become corrupted by the flesh. When God first made Adam He breathed into his nostrils and Adam became a living soul; Adam was both spirit and body; spirit and body together means: He was now called a living soul! God had breathed into his nostrils “the breath of life” and from that point onwards he was both alive physically and alive spiritually and he was now called a living soul, he was not only breathing pure physical air but he was breathing pure spiritual Spirit of God air and you could say, pure Holy Spirit of God and Spirit of Life air!

So way back then in the days of Adam, and Eve who came later, they really did have the naked Truth and nothing was dressed up in all of this fanciful thinking and paraphernalia that we all clutter up our minds with these days and all of the religious garb that people find themselves parading around in and all the pearls of wisdom that they wear around their necks and all of theses big giant rings that some of these preachers wear these days; they stand in front of their audiences with these massive gold rings on their fingers and I suppose this has some kind of hypnotic effect upon people in that they subconsciously perceive theses preachers as having some kind of high spiritual authority and so they feel that they should surrender themselves to them and hang on their every word. Adam and Eve had none of this stuff going on, they were pure in both body and spirit, they were living souls both created in the image of God and Jesus would visit them in the garden there and all they ever had with Jesus was the naked Truth and the naked Holy Spirit and a naked God whom they worshipped; Adam and Eve had no concept whatsoever of clothes; they had never ever seen a pair of underpants or a pair of knickers, socks, trousers, suits, ties, cloaks, or religious clothes, or any clothes of any sort whatsoever, so yes, the word “Holy” means: Totally separated from the garb of humanity; separated from all the garb and all the uniformity and traditions of man and the rivalry that all comes with it!

  3. I guess what this article illustrates is there is currently a void for leadership in the body of Christ. I have tried all kinds of churches but have been unable to fit in, and at present I pretty much get most of my fellowship online. In real life I mainly associate with non-believers. I think the simpletruth4today blog is taking a leadership role at this point because I have been very content with your sound doctrine, and I appreciate your sincere desire in wanting to point people in the right direction. Leadership is definitely about pointing people in the right direction and you folks are definitely doing this. I also agree with you that people flaunting wealth and expensive jewellery does not automatically quality them to be leaders in the body of Christ. I would really like to see more blue collar workers in leadership roles in the body of Christ; after all Jesus leading disciples were fisherman. On a personal note I was personally led to Jesus Christ by two hard working blue collar workers; one was in construction and the other guy was a wood polisher. They were just really down to earth guys who didn’t exalt themselves over others and I guess that humility in them was attractive to me.

  4. We sincerely appreciate your pure honesty here. One thing that is really true, and that is that Jesus always goes with the truth, He cannot lie and will not go with a lie, so the best thing that we can all do is to do as you have done and that is to go with honesty and speak from the heart. It is also true what you have said, in so many words, and that is that the same class system that is out there in the world is also in the church system and you do also notice it here on the Internet in the comments sections of various blogs that the response given is very much dependant upon who comes along. We think it is more important for people to again look at the heart of the matter here and try to see what people are really saying no matter who they are. The fact that we are all on the Internet these days spells out a serious situation for us all and that is that we are all one way or another pegged out and largely on the outside looking in, so why don’t we all just come clean and be totally transparent and say to each other that what we all really want deep down is to be seen, heard, and felt, to love and be loved in return is what we should all be doing and what we all need – to love God and love each other, that’s all Jesus ever wanted for us all and that’s why He endured the loneliness of the cross, to love and to be loved in return. All Glory to God!

  5. I forgot to tell you. When I was reading this article it reminded me of a book I read (I actually read this book 3 times at least) called “Merchants of deception” by Eric Scheibeler. I rarely read books these days but when I started looking at this book it caught my interest and I was literally on the edge of my seat and totally stunned as I read it. The book is a true story about a young Christian couple whose faith in God is destroyed by the desire for riches and wealth; Eric Schreibeler’s experience pretty much agrees with everything you have been saying in your articles and comments, and I’m sure you folks could get a lot out of his book. The book also addresses the important topic of leadership within the body of Christ. I think the book was even banned at one stage but it is available to read for free as a PDF on a number of websites. Eric has the book available on a number of websites for free; just do a google search for “merchants of deception eric schreibeler pdf” and I’m sure you will find it. There can definitely be a hidden class system operating within churches/fellowships these days as you say, if you look like you don’t have much money you can be excommunicated (covertly or overtly) from many churches these days as they see people as assets rather than human beings.
