Ha ha ... ha ha .... ha ha.
Nice ridicule. NOW let's bring you back to the Word of God.
Why should I NOT proclaim "God in me, God in me" ?
No one has beheld God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us and His love is perfected in us.
In this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, that He has given to us of His Spirit." (1 John 4:12,13)
Now put on you clown suite and "yuk, yuk" your way to ridicule this. The Apostle John speaks of those in whom God abides.
C'mon - "yuk, yuk. Hindu Mantra! Yuk, Yuk."
" ... And in this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He gave to us." (1 John 3:24)
Hinduism huh ?
Now WHERE does God abide in me ? He abides with my human spirit - "The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you." (2 Timothy 4:22)
Now THAT is interesting. THAT is, in fact, wonderful. The Lord is with my spirit. I'm sorry if the Lord is not with YOUR spirit robbie.
So Yuk it up now with as much jolly ridicule as you can. C'mon. Second Timothy 4:22
tells us Christians that the Lord is with our spirit.
If the Lord is not with your spirit or you don't even know that you have a spirit, then I understand why you mock us. You have no experience of such a matter.
Not only is God abiding in me as the Lord who is with my spirit. We corporately are a "dwelling place of God in spirit" (Eph. 2:22)
This is not Hinduism Robbie Jehovah's door knocker. This is the New Testament
. God is seeking a corporate, collective, aggregate habitation of God in spirit
"Being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone.
In whom all the building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord.
In whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in spirit." (Eph. 2:20-22)
We have God abiding in us who believe into Christ.
And God's plan is to build us up into a living temple.
You know what the temple of God is for?
It is for GOD to be inside the temple.
And we are being built up into a habitation of God (dwelling place) in spirit. That is in our regenerated human spirit.
They apparently didn't teach you this down at the Kingdom Hall.
They were too busy trying to convince you that Christ is the angel Michael.
And you want to yuk it up and tease me?
Better look in your mirror and yuk it up.
Jehovah lives in us who have believed into Christ.
"Jesus answered and said to him, If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We [Father and Son by means of the Holy Spirit] will come to him and make an abode with him." (John 14:23)
The Triune God has come to make an abode in me. So says the Bible.
