unny, I do not think it is understood being led, touched, guided by His Spirit! It is God! We speak of God being a “Supernatural” force, non natural. Only in this universe are things tangible in the ‘flesh! God’s first family was the family of Isrealites. We learn that His Spirit led them! God led them! Moses used to fellowship with God! He asked to ‘see’ God! Let us move back for one quick second!
Using the words of John as my starting point, we not that it says “No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him” John 1:18. This is a propositional statement which is the clearest of all, so I would look at the texts it is pointed out in Scripture and has said in John 1. We step back once again and take a gander at Genesis chapter 3:8-10
“And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

[Actually, we are not told that Adam and Eve “saw” God, but only that they “heard the sound of the LORD.
There is ONE God, Yes! He has taken many channels and has been glorified. We have pointed out that ‘It’ has started again. ‘Time’ does NOT exist out of this realm. Activity does! To define activity, it is “doing.” Yes! In the Spiritual, things occur as they do. We are tethered by ‘time’! Once again let us step back to Daniels’ prayer in the book of Daniel chapter 10:2-9: “At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.
On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris, I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. His body was like topaz, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.
I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision; those who were with me did not see it, but such terror overwhelmed them that they fled and hid themselves. So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless. Then I heard him speaking, and as I listened to him, I fell into a deep sleep, my face to the ground.”

So many things can be said about this individuals who ‘perceived’ God, many times did it in an alternate state. We can go back and read Revelations. St. John the Theologian is said to have written the Book of Revelations from a vision. We can know that it was through no physical occurrence but was based on Spiritual events: Patmos is “A sterile island about 30 miles in circumference, in the Aegean Sea, South West of Samos and 45 miles West of Miletus; now called Patino, or Patimo, or Patmosa, and reckoned among the Sporades (“two groups of Greek islands in the Aegean . . . which lie off the South West coast of Turkey” ~ Collins Dictionary), with an excellent harbour” (Young’s).

“Patmos” means “my killing” (Dictionary of Scripture Proper Names by J.B. Jackson). It was a sterile island. “Sterile” meaning “1. unable to produce offspring; infertile. 2. free from living . . . 3. (of plants or their parts) not producing or bearing seeds, fruit, spores, stamens, or pistils. 4. lacking inspiration or vitality; fruitless” ~ Collins). How interesting that God would use such a place to bring to John the Revelation of Jesus Christ! (God sure works in an “opposite spirit” to what man does)!
Why do we go through all of these? Again, we are in the physical, to see beyond the physical, we must be taken to a point that ‘belies’ the physical.
We mentioned God working in mysterious ways. There is so much to be said. Moses- a murderer, experienced God in a “burning bush.” The burning bush is an object described by the Book of Exodus as being located on Mount Horeb. … In the biblical narrative, theburning bush is the location at which Moses was appointed by Adonai (God) to lead the Israelites out of Egypt and into Canaan.
Again, God in the ‘Physical’ is represented many ways. Looking back at Jacob, we read that he wrestled all night with ‘a Man.’ “When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob’s hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. … And he said, “Jacob.” Then he said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed.”

Again, there are so many stories, so many occurences; read as led. I have discussed ‘comedy’, we at times ‘laugh’ in the Spirit. At present, there are so many comedians, where did they come from? If you seriously consider it, https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/7548934
We have so many qualities. What makes us different from all else in the world?
“So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.”
Genesis 1:27

For a second, let us see just why: “As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.” Genesis 9:7
I am aware that this is to be a focused read/sharing and it is. We started out describing “God”, touching on a few of the many forms He has taken. What we should do to see into the Spiritual. Sometimes it is a chore! But, if you wish to experience- do some things you might not every day.

We have discussed in the past “meetings” in a spiritual sense. “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
Matthew 18:20

God IS One. Yes, He is experienced so many ways. We worship HIM in Spirit and in truth. There are so many religions. Each states there is ONE God. There may be different ways of communing with God. There need be no multiple emotions, we ALL serve ONE God, our ways may be different, but there is ONE God. I do not think that any “Manual” for living dictates any to go awry and judge others. What you choose to do is what you choose to do and for the most part are seeds we sew in our own garden. Violence begets violence:
“The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.”Psalm 11:5
“Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its place. For all who take the sword will perish by the sword. Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then should the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?”Matthew 26:52-54

“Violence shall no more be heard in your land, devastation or destruction within your borders; you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.”Isaiah 60:18

“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.” Matthew 5:38-39

“Do not envy a man of violence and do not choose any of his ways.” Proverbs 3:31

“For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.” Romans 13:4

“For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.”
Hebrews 10:30

“As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.” Romans 14:1

“To speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.” Titus 3:2

We can go on, but I just wanted a ‘quick’ share.
