Please read the portion italicized and underlined in each version of John 16:13 below and explain what all those versions are saying about how the Holy Spirit will speak and not speak.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. KJV
John 16:13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. NIV

Many of Mormonism's men of a certain age and experience are priests in the
Church's order of Melchizedek.
According to the New Testament epistle to the Hebrews, the Melchizedek
priesthood is a high-priest priesthood. As such it is very exclusive; viz: it's
supposed to be occupied by only one man at a time; viz: a Melchizedek
priest is solo, i.e. he has no fellows.
Also: the position of a high priest is for life, i.e. he's not replaced until he
dies, which should never happen to a Melchizedek priest because according
to the New Testament letter to Hebrews, they're supposed to be immortal.
Galatians 5:16 "This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh."
John 15:4 "Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me."
Abide . . . from the Greek work meno . . . to remain.
Are these the same? Walking in the Spirit, and Abiding in Christ?
What does it mean to walk in the Spirit? To Abide in Christ?
What part do we play in doing these? What does that "look like"?
As a Mechanical Engineer, I tend to view the Genesis Creation Account through the lens of One who is creating a 3D CAD Model first and physical creation second.
In other words, the Genesis Creation Account tells the story of One who is creating a *blueprint* of a 3D Virtual World, and *not* the actual manufactured environment itself.
Physical construction, i.e. 3D Printing, would come much later.
Scientists are just now beginning to recognize that we may in fact be living in a type of 'Computer Simulation' not unlike a game of Sims. News headlines and video talks are popping up everywhere regarding this subject.
With this is mind, I will be presenting this viewpoint here for reference in a series of posts.
Anyone who is familiar...
In response to the disrespectful and despicable actions of Nancy Pelosi and her *Demoncrats* at the OUTSTANDING State of the Union message by Donald Trump, evangelist Franklin Graham asked "What's wrong with these people?"
I'm sure he knows the answer but if he were to state it publicly, there would be a firestorm from the Left. So what's wrong with these people is that they are demonic. They are possessed and controlled by demons, who are controlled by Satan. Therefore hatred is their primary attitude. Jesus said that Satan (the thief) is motivated to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). So are his minions.
They are demonic their hatred for:
(1) Donald Trump
(2) Trump's successes
(3) the gains made by ordinary Americans...

THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.
4 Feb 2020
ROME — Pope Francis marked the first anniversary of the Abu Dhabi joint accord Tuesday by calling for “a future free from hatred, resentment, extremism and terrorism.”
“I greet all of you present and especially greet all the people who with humanity help their poor, the sick, the persecuted and weak brothers and sisters regardless of the religion, color, or race to which they belong,”...
Hebrews 8:1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
The writer of Hebrews was writing to believing Jews in Christ, who believed the gospel of the kingdom, and were awaiting the coming of Christ to establish their Davidic kingdom on earth (Matthew 4:23 Jeremiah 23:5).
Christ was their High Priest and mediator of a better covenant.
Nowhere does Paul say that the church, the body of Christ, in this dispensation, is under covenant.
8:7 For if that first covenant...
I do not have a firm idea about what 1 Timothy 3:15 means, but it does seem clear that some Christians willing to ignore it. What does it mean to other people? What is the role of the church in matters of the truth?
1 Timothy 3:15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
