I like your questions Jtk, to think that it was a trickster God performing events to delude me is quite humorous.
Actually, to begin with, I wasn't sure, it took me a whole year to be entirely convinced with enough personal conviction to truly believe it was the Christian God. I began studying the bible, as it was the most obvious thing to do, when seeking to know a spiritual Deity. I began to read the word of Acts. In Acts 19:6 it states;
"And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking in tongues and prophesying."
I began to actively seek the prayer language of tongues and it is referred to as a gift from the Holy Spirit. Acts 10:44 - 47;
"While Peter was still saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the word. And the believers from among the circumcised who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles. For they were hearing them speaking in tongues and extolling God. Then Peter declared, “Can anyone withhold water for baptizing these people, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?”
I was told by a close friend, that she was prayed for in church to receive the prayer language and it poured out of her. She told me she was overwhelmed by the Holy Spirit. So one sunday in church I went up feeling ready to receive the Holy Spirit and it was confirmed to me that I would, because the minister, my father said amongst the crowd, that someone was feeling confined and unable to receive the Holy Spirit and God wants you to know that you will receive it if you come up to the altar now. That was me, I was feeling confined by my ex gf who was blocking my way out of the pews. So I climbed over the pews, went up front and began praising God's name. I had a hand laid on me by my father and he told me to release the feeling I had inside. I instantly turned from excitement to sobbing. It was not a forced action, I had no control over my tears and sobbing and I felt lighter and began praying in Tongues. That confirmed to me the Christian God. Sorry for the long response.
You're right noGodsforme, I would pray in whatever religion I was raised in. The question for myself would be, would God answer to my prayers for the Muslim God? I truly do not know. Prayer is the act of belief that a spiritual Deity is listening to you. Would the true God listen to the prayers for a Muslim God? According to the Christian God, Jesus, which responded unto me.
Exodus 20:3 NIV(1984);
"You shall have no other gods before me."
I have no idea what God would do or not do in such a circumstance. I only know what the Christian God stands by, where in lies my faith. It's all because I prayed to the Christian God in said situation. Therefore I have 100% faith and belief that the Christian God is the true God, although I personally do not have all the answers. All I can tell you, is what I've experienced and what the Christian faith teaches.
That's a fair question. I experienced what I had witnessed by chance. At the time I experienced it, I was challenging the Christian God's laws by disobeying them. I believe He is the one true God, but I'll refer Him in terms that's clear to everyone. The Christian God does not want us to have premarital sex, drinking for drunkenness and cursing in His name. I was doing all the above for about a year or so without any respect to the God I was taught about my whole life and in said circumstance, I was pouring out the cursings left and right. I must have tempted or "tested" God's patience and He intervened. No, I didn't have monkeys fall out of my butt, but I did see the impossible happen. Perhaps you should open your mind to more plausible things like books opening on their own or objects floating in air. Certainly you would not want 12lbs monkeys crawling out of your anus, that would really painful lol. I wasn't asking for a specific circumstance, I wasn't asking for any circumstance, only that I was disobeying the Christian God's laws in anger.
