    In the Old Testament, God, indeed, has a form.

    At least one person has stated, God can assume ANY form.

    Well, please, tell me, what "form/forms" has He assumed?

    The idea that God can assume any form directly contradicts the idea that he does not change. We don't get the idea that God does not change from the Bible but from the Hermetic (Tehuti) principles written thousands of years before the bible.

    God does not have an intrinsic form which goes through intrinsic changes to suit the occassion. But like the blue of the sky is just an optic illussion created by looking through white light at the blackness of outerspace, so the "forms" of God exists not in his being but in our optic, spiritual and mental perception and experience of him.

    Solomon7.....

    I gather you are a follower if NOI teachings. Correct me if I'm wrong. As their theology states: there have been succession of gods throughout time, each having unique/different characteristics, hence; the different forms he takes. I don't believe in a 'spirit' god,and yes I do believe he is a physical being, if not, how will we bear witness to his glorious return that is so spoken of?:confused:

    Jer:10:16: The portion of Jacob is not like them: for he is the former of all things; and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: The LORD of hosts is his name.

    Jer:51:19: The portion of Jacob is not like them; for he is the former of all things: and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: the LORD of hosts is his name.


    GOD is all forms.

    From my remembrance HE assumed the form of Voice, Mist/Smoke, Fire.

    You are confusing GOD with an instrument. No matter how great the True Messiah will be, one of his logical and acceptable reasoning that will keep the True Messiah grounded is he will know and understand that he is only a Servant of GOD as a tool or instrument performing the LORD Will.

    Your post doesn't really relate to my point. So how do these instruments communicate with this 'spirit God'? What is your definition of GOD then?

    Where are you recalling this memory from? Also, aren't fire and smoke both materials (physical)?
