    That is coming.

    However, God brings mankind along at his own pace.

    Revelation 1:7
    Berean Study Bible
    Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him—even those who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. So shall it be! Amen.

    How much is enough? He did that with the Israelites. They saw indescribable miracles. But that didn't stop the very same people who saw His wonders from turning against Him.

    He's done it before. How many times does He need to do it? Once a millennium? century? decade? year? How much is enough?

    (responding from prayer wall). There are very rare stories of out of body experiences or visions, but not the norm. Sundar Singh, was seeking God, and finally was gonna kill himself unless God revealed himself..
    Sundar Singh's Vision of Christ - 1901-2000 Church History ...

    The danger is to mess with the wrong or evil spirits without even knowing it like the seven sons of Sceva.

    Act 19:13-16 NIV - 13 Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, "In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out." 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. 15 One day the evil spirit answered them, "Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?" 16 Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.

    Again you gotta have some good reason to seek this. Jesus said in Mat 12:39 NIV - 39 He answered, "A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.

    Why do you seek such experiences? What's your purpose? Do you know Christ? Everything is revealed and experienced by knowing his words. Read the Gospels. link: John 1 NIV

    Since reading the Gospel of John about 36 years ago, I've been experiencing God through Christ every day of my life.

    As I mentioned Sadhu Sundar Singh had such experiences. Read a few of his books and see. But his experiences were unique.

    So you just want to go on some joy ride. I can understand that too. Or do you have some greater cause in mind?

    What does this verse mean to you?

    Jhn 4:24 NIV - 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth."

    My purpose is to build a better connection with God.Through him giving me an out of body experience.:)

    John 4:24 to me means to worship God with your entire being.

    Entire being physical, or spiritual; or both? So why did Jesus say Jhn 4:21 NIV - 21 "Woman," Jesus replied, "believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.?

    So what's your connection with God now?

    Jhn 4:23 NIV - 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    Jhn 6:63 NIV - 63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you--they are full of the Spirit and life.

    When you worship in Spirit and in truth, you won't seek out of body experiences. There's no need. Look to Jesus for this.
