    The Greek δοκεῖ translated imagines means 'thinks'. It is folly to claim that all thinking is wrong. It is folly to claim that all imagining is wrong. The context is in relation to food offered to idols. It is referring to the thoughts of those who have come out of idolatry and are not yet...

    Yes when I ask folks who push a doctrine to speak of His fruit in their lives there is often silence.

    A matter not mentioned is that our redemption and sanctification renews the Whole Man - we are to become more like Jesus in every aspect of life. This includes the imagination, the intuition, the conscience, - all become perfected by His work in our lives. For this reason it is out of order to...

    That is a misapplication of the verse. You are in error to reject matters based on non-mention - it is clearly recorded that Jesus did many things not recorded. You would condemn these as well if they were claimed to have happened in this age.

    Testifying to being spoken to by God in way's not mentioned in Scripture is not being 'caught out'. Scripture does not claim to record everything believers will do, in fact Scripture says the opposite. Scripture does not even record everything Jesus did. Jesus said we would do greater things...

    Yes, we may very will be on the same page on some aspects of this. The way I see it is that Jesus was indwelled by the Holy Spirit at conception and empowered (anointed) by the Holy Spirit permanently at baptism. When we consider the OT saints, some were gifted with exceptional human spirits...

    Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. John 14:17 the Helper is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him; but you know...

    Appreciate that thanks. You said "all believers also have the indwelling Spirit." So what function does the Holy Spirit have in believers today ?

    On the contrary as you are pushing a 'bible only' position, readers would understand your position more easily if you admit to holding the belief that the Holy Spirit does not indwell believers today.

    Isaiah 11 further details the nature of the anointing specifying the seven spirits of God in the first verses. Here we see the nature of His indwelling presence, including the Spirit of the fear of the Lord spoken of by Jeremiah who prophesied this would indwell believers in a covenant to come...
