Crystal, Heaven and the Mind Body Spirit Festival


I was invited to help out with the dekhomai stand at the 2007 Mind Body Spirit Festival last week but couldnt make it because i was in Germany. Pity!! Jonny Baker has photos and story of what the Jesus followers did there. I heard that Steve Hollinghurst, who is becoming a veteran of these Festivals,  made an appearance on The Psychic Show. The Shiny Headed Prophet also made it. The team used prayer, massage and the Jesus Deck as communication tools and it sounded like people were really receptive to getting prayer and advise.

Hey, speaking of New Age and crystals and what not . . . . heres  a question for you related to Revelation 21.

Are those stones in Heaven real?

And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. (Rev 21:19-20)

    Blessed are the peacemakers! It must be my day, because by casting my vote (60th) I made a perfect balance in the poll: 20x20x20! Here is the proof. 🙂 I see the balance is all messed up again. (whewh)

  • A perfect balance? Or gridlock? 🙂
    Not trying to sway anyone’s vote here, but my take is that the Book of Revelation is mainly allegorical, filled with symbolism. I worry when folks cherry-pick portions of that book — or any other portion of scripture, for that matter — and choose to make them literal while insisting that other portions are figurative or symbolic. For instance, is the dragon of Revelation 12 a real dragon? Is the beast out of the sea a real sea monster? It’s a slippery slope we go down when we start trying to interpret symbolism as literal truth.
    But as Dennis Miller used to say, “I could be wrong.”
    Thanks to Andrew for continuing to provoke thought. It’s been too long since I’ve visited this site. Stop by my new blog sometime to say hello, if you like.
