Holy Spirit moved individuals by divine command who are observing on-earth effects of the Kingdom of God – to do this little exercise in daily humility —  define all scalars and measure all vectors of all causes and effects in the Kingdom of God – today.

Micheal (M.D.) is structuring a study outline for the Dr. Richard Gallagher book,  Demonic Foes: My Twenty-Five Years as a Psychiatrist Investigating Possessions, Diabolic Attacks, and the Paranormal Hardcover.

If our study does not result in daily care in practical cases, then our study is useless.

And we are sifted like wheat.

The Holy Spirit signed no contract to cooperate with results of studies on degrees of social influence starting with smallest groups.

Studies about degrees of influence go like this.  Start with our friends or nuclear families (first degree).  Move on to how our friends and family influence our friends’ friends and families of friends (second degree).  Next move on to study the influence of our friends’ friends’ friends and family (third degree).  And so on. It all starts with smallest groups.  The smallest groups are often our nuclear families.  These smallest groups, however, can be nuclear groups that are stronger than nuclear family because they are forged together by strongest covenant-bonds for service and obedience – just as Jesus said, “Who is My mother, and who are My brothers?” Pointing to His disciples, He said, “Here are My mother and My brothers. For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother” (Matthew 12:48-50).

The focus in studies of degrees of influence in social networking , churches, politics, local bar rooms – and for our local mission teams would have us know that the influence of just 20 workers in the field (just one full-time trainer working with just one full-time learner – times 10 = 20) is an effective influence on 160,000 people, whose further networks have an effective influence on another 25,600,000,000 (twenty-five billion, six hundred million). 

These measures are generally true.  They all start with smallest groups.  Not big numbers:  but, full-time commitment replicated in others.

True, these studies are true, but are potentially misleading.  Misleading because having an influence on 25,600,000,000 people (twenty-five billion, six hundred million) says nothing about the quality and kind of the influence.

Influence? For life?  For death? 

Or for mediocrity and lukewarmness by camping in ‘safe zones’ in between life and death?

Most full-time trainers here have used The Tempest as an instruction and training media. The Tempest is all about winning battles by prayer alone.  In the Julie Taymor version, Prospera recites standard language about using prayer:  1) some prayers to heal, 2) some prayers to harm (harm evil).  These two elements of prayer are just basic introductions to prayer. To heal and bless the Good.  To destroy and harm the evil.  That’s prayer in a nutshell.

The effects of Answered prayers in physical results on earth can be more complicated in because of the number and the spectrum of results of influence on others.   The Tempest revisits the mixture – and it is a mixture – of many influences and many effects predicted in the Mountains of Blessings and Curses.  

The basic statistical studies on degrees of influence do not show who, or Who gets the benefits of effects of influence – in 25,600,000,000 (twenty-five billion, six hundred million) – effects of influence. 

The studies do not show the reasons why.  Or the complicated mixtures.  Other studies must measure these mixtures.  

The Holy Spirit alone authors and knows the real influence of our contemporary “Book of Numbers.”  As we have written many times, the Book of Numbers was a census for going to war.  Many were counted for war.  Very few showed up.  Of all those numbered for war, only the smallest handful showed up fully committed and the greatest number in this massive Book of Numbers wandered and died in the wilderness – with their names on the books

What kind of influence is it to be called to war – and not show up?  How to measure that failure to show up for war on that generation? – on their own living children who got to wander with the adults? – how to measure that failure to show up for war on next generations who suffered for their cowardice?  – what kind of influence are we having? – especially because our radiating effects in furthermost outward circles really does influence 25,600,000,000 others?

It is a truism among some professional mathematicians that  – “God has the Big Book of Numbers, God has All the Beautiful Proofs, God has all Mathematical Theorems.”  There are emotional expressions in the scriptures that show God disgusted and wanting to repent for making an earth full of a Big Book of Numbers.  In some cases, God is pleased and for the Joy set before Him, He implemented Salvation (Hebrews 12:2).

As to influence, we are not called just to influence others.  There is an idolatry in this focus on our influence.  We are called to be under the influence of the Spirit – unto obedience. 

God knows the degrees to which we are influenced by the Holy Spirit unto obedience.   

As MTB said over and over, now recently deceased in Texas, she said to the old forums (2004-2012) – Ananias and Sapphira got numbered for faking and lying about the measures of their obedience.  The Barna studies (here) describe people deliberately seeking churches that are deliberately lukewarm and half-committed and growing with big numbers – to avoid full-time commitment.

The simple studies about degrees of influence are generally accurate. 

These studies mean that 20 people here, say just 10 full-time mentors and with only 1 full-time student each (10 students), and then each reproducing full-time commitment in kind — these very small numbers can have an effective influence on 160,000 people.   

And more generally, this propagation of influence is certain to happen. 

For good or ill.  Influence happens.

We are either blessed or doomed, as you will, in having influence.

On good days, we hear and obey. 

Other days, we don’t care.   Enough.

Technical – Love is the Ontogenetic Source of Trust – by Micheal, and Celie∞Hilbert

This is  an experience proof.  Or an existential proof. 

Love starts as a sense of Presence in undifferentiated and global-felt- loving-presence and Love progressively becomes differentiated across the span of an entire lifetime, generating as a result progressively differentiated experiences of states of trust across various domains of human action, including in domains of science and religion as species (and sometimes both as psuedo-species) of differentiated trusts,  manifested in judgments of trustworthy or untrustworthy behaviors.  

The metric for trust is to invest trust in any object in proportion to the trustworthiness or untrustworthiness of the object trusted. 

Trust is extremely highly metric in all hard sciences, is somewhat less highly metric, but is metric still to a great extent, in social sciences and in law, and trust is either ubiquitously metric with infinite results (for good and for ill) in religion as “religion,” or is most profoundly person-specific, address-specific, and time-specific in all actions  (at least these three axes, in acts-praxes πρᾶξις of the Spirit, where ‘acts’ are the vectors of movement and dimension) motivated and moved in humans, acting under the Holy Spirit.  

See e.g., @ Acts-Praxes πρᾶξις of the Spirit

The ontogenetic source of metric-trust is Love.

Epigenetics and synergetic effects play a yet intractable-to-metrics source of physical manifestations in the hard sciences, and in human sciences such as is the case with many mental and physical illness.  

It is not the purpose of this one comment to explore existential proofs for demonic influences and especially not for demonic ‘possession’ as auxiliary metrics and diagnostic criteria for those medical practitioners who do advise and oversee such procedures.  The results of errors in the metrics and criteria used in such diagnoses are potentially catastrophic.
