The Power of God preserves forms and brings to see where forms are not.

Pr. He saith, If they can but destroy all formes, the power will fall with it; for the form preserves the power, page 37.

Answ. Contrary to the Apostle; many have the form, but deny the power. The power preserves the forme, sees the end of forms, and destroys them, and brings to see before forms were, where forms are not. For the Apostles who lived in the power, denied the Jewes forms, and Gentiles both, as we do now deny the Popish…

The Impulse of Immanent Being

There is a way of being, consciousness, or self-awareness that is innate in human beings and which is intuitively experienced rather than learned though intellectual effort or reflective consciousness. Reflective consciousness lights up in relation to reflections through the functioning of the body. That is, through the senses and intellectual or mental ideological constructs. A person may directly experience the nature of being that is mirrored through the…

The Christonomy Project - a window into one aspect of the vision.

From the age of five or six years old I have been an observer of nature and a documenter of natural history Click here to view an example. The nesting habits of wild birds is of particular interest. The method I use to survey breeding birds in an area is to sit quietly in one spot for a set number hours (4 to 8 hours) observing the bird activity around me over a period of days. Over time, a flash…

A Different ministration of Life in relation to others.

I am encouraged and grateful my research into early Quakers is revealing many people within the early Quaker gathering who, through the appearance of the inherent Presence of the spirit of Christ in their consciousness and conscience, were (relatively speaking) drawn out of the process of relating to one another through the process of reflective thought to guide and rule their relationships, interactions, and worship. The nature of this different way of relating to and interacting with…

Virtue out of the Shadows

Research Notes.

I am ever thankful for those early Quakers who, through the inshining Spirit, were come out of the process of idenitification with and participation in outward forms to guide and informs their relationships, laid down their testimonies in writing. For by so doing, they make it possible for those of us today who share the same spiritual experience to expose to our contemporaries that the Spirit was ministering in such a way even from the very beginnings of the…

A walk through time out of Time. Manifesting those Quakers out of all Appearances.

A walk through time out of Time. Manifesting those Quakers out of all Appearances.

Thirty years ago, I had an experience of seeing a different way of being, conscience and consciousness. It was a glimpse of a glimpse that held fast and true in the far periphery of Life; kissing consciousness. In that moment, I became Quaker. However, Quaker of a different sort.

For twenty years I have attended Quaker Assemblies of various sorts. There was a time I almost sought membership in…

Help finding a specific word for a specific behavior.

Hello,

Imagine this happened to you:

You are reading a book on a park bench and someone walks up to you and punches your arm then yells at you saying, “Hey you hit me.” 

Can anyone come up with a word for this behavior? I’m struggling to find a word that is right on target. Hypocrisy doesn’t seem to fit.

Thank you, Keith

Those Early Quakers who were come out of the process of participation in and identification with outward Ecclesiastical and Magisterial Forms, Practices, and Prescriptions.

In 1673 a letter from an anonymous Quaker was published. This letter expressed the writer’s concern that those who were establishing outward structure to guide and inform the gathering were usurping the prerogative of the inshining Spirit itself in itself to rule and guide the gathering in and through the conscience and consciousness of people by forcing people in the gathering to follow their rule. He accused those establishment forces, who were admonishing or contending for submission to…

The Christian Quaker by: William Rogers - Complete web and pdf versions.

In the year 1680, William Rogers published “The Christian Quaker Distinguished from the Apostate & Innovator, in Five Parts” as a response to what many Quakers at the time understood to be an introduction of a peremptory spirit into the gathering led by George Fox. This categorical process was manifested by George Fox’s establishment of outward institutional forms and prescriptions, the adherence to which, was enforced through ridicule and demonization and other activities over against…

Geroge Fox and those early Quakers who denied “prescriptions without distinction.”

Research Notes: George Fox, Researchcode: geofoxjournalpt2pg3331709ed



In 1678 George Fox was moved to write a paper against those Quakers who opposed the Godily established order and disciple in the Quaker gathering. Fox says these Quakers who opposed the divinely given order of the Quakers “deny Prescriptions without distinction.”



To deny Prescriptions without distinction is to not differentiate between those outward prescriptions that are divinely given and those…

The inshining Spirit and the discovery of the Substance of all types, figures, and forms.

It happens that the Spirit of Christ makes visitation upon our consciousness and conscience and his Image is come and we can witness the second coming, the Daystar, within our consciousness. The formation of the inshining Image or Presence within initiates a shift in the very nature of consciousness and conscience. The witness and awareness of Christ’s inshining Presence manifests a way of being wherein consciousness and personal identity is established in the forming Image of Christ itself…

George Fox and Holy-days (1677)

George Fox, writing from Amsterdam in 1677, admonished Quakers against being draw into outward ceremony and observances. He wrote:



Where did ever Christ or his Apostles command any Believers, or Christians to observe Holy-dayes, or Feast-days; and let us see where it is written in the Scriptures of the New Testament, in the four Evangelists, or Epistles, or the Revelations? That ever Christ or his Apostles gave the Christians and such…
