For years I searched the Scriptures to find out how God's Spirit, the Holy Spirit, was supernaturally controlling my thoughts and actions in prophecy, words of knowledge, writing, teaching, dreams, revelation, proof of doctrine and training in righteousness, which superseded my imperfect human thoughts and actions. When I found the answer, I discovered how forty plus writers and translators of the King James Version (KJV) could write exactly, word for word, jot and tittle, what God wanted them to write in all 66 canonical books of the KJV (1611 English Version). The KJV proved to be supernaturally protected to contain all of the jots and tittles spoken of by Jesus Christ. The answer to this phenomenon is once the servant of God surrenders his/her complete will to the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Lord at His Will and choosing at certain times causes His servant(s) to be beside themselves which in the Greek meaning to be out of their minds to Spiritually take on the Mind of Jesus Christ. The servants sometimes sense to even be out of their bodies in being beside themselves as explained in Mark 3:21; Acts 26:24; 2 Corinthians 5:13 and 1 Corinthians 2:16. The Greek words for beside are Existemi, meaning to throw out of position, displace to amaze, to astonish, throw into wonderment to be amazed, astounded to be out of one's mind, or beside one's self. The other Greek Word for besides in the Bible is Mainomai: meaning to be one who so speaks that he seems not to be in his right mind. Mark 3:21 ". . . And when his (Jesus) friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself." Acts 26:24 ". . . And as he thus spake for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, thou art beside thyself; much learning doth make thee mad . . " 2 Cor. 5:13 ". . . For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause. 1 Cor. 2:16 " For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him But we have the mind of Christ.

Ben Carson, at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC, with Barach Obama present, spoke out about the evil of Political Correctness and subtle and not so subtle rebukes against some political decisions and policies, most in the audience and media knew that Barack Obama supported and oblivious to anyone conscious of public awareness. Without mentioning the specific program, Ben Carson spoke out against the personal political decisions of the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) and several other issues. With a voice demeanor of great respect, admiration and awe, James Dobson an indulgent respecter of famous titled guest on his show, sheepishly asked Ben Carson where he ever got the courage, in front of thousands of people at the 2013 National Prayer breakfast and to his right the most powerful man in the world, Barack Obama, to say what he said. . .
On Tuesday morning January
5, 2016, my wife Ruth and I were
listening to Ben Carson, the famous brain surgeon and 2016 Presidential candidate,
who was being interviewed by 79-year-old radio host, book author, past U.S. presidential
family advisor, and Christian psychologist James Dobson, on his Christian radio program, "Family Talk".
James Dobson asked Ben Carson the following questions, which are transcribed excerpts from part 2 of the 3 part series that was broadcast on January 4, 5, and 6.
Note the elapsed time of the online program
recording to the left of the speaker's statement:
01:51 Dobson: "Describe your relationship with Christ today.
"Does He continue to walk with you?" Has He led you to leave the university,
to leave academia, and ah, umm, all, the whole medical community, and to do what
you are doing now, and if so, why do you think so?"
"I would feel extremely vulnerable
if I didn't feel He was right here by
my side, (Beside myself ) every moment, and every step of the way . . ."
14:22 Dobson: "I
mentioned earlier, the speech you gave at the Presidential Prayer Breakfast, in
two thousand and thirteen. President Obama and, Michele Obama were sitting
there, (uhh) to your right I think and
to the other side was Vice President, Biden and what you were saying was very
offensive to them. At least it contradicted just about everything that they have
stood for. You stood up there in front
of about three thousand people, cause I've been at that prayer breakfast many
times, and you stood there and said things, that where you talk about not being
P.C., politically correct, they were the
opposite of that, and you didn't flinch. Where did you get the guts to do that in front
of the most powerful man in the United States and in the world?"
15:16 Carson: "It came from the good Lord." I
didn't know what I was going to say. I
knew the Lord wanted me to say something because . . .
15:25 Dobson: "Specific
. . ."
15:26Carson: "Specific! Because, when I got the
invitation, my first question was, Lord, what are you up to . . . (chuckle)
because I had spoken there seventeen years earlier and I didn't know anybody who
did it twice, and then I found out, Billy Graham had done it twice. I knew I had
some big shoes to fill and then I said, Lord, you obviously want me to say
something, and I don't know what it is . . .
15:45 Dobson: "You spoke in 1997when Bill Clinton was
President . . .
1549 Carson: "Correct!
. . ."
15; 50 Dobson: "And
that was the Monica Lewinsky era . . ."
15:51; Carson: Correct
. . .
15:53 Dobson: "You
spoke there and (chuckle) you waded
into then . . ."
15:55 Carson: "I
talked about integrity in office and he must have been saying, does he know? (Carson
Dobson both laughing)"
1601 Carson: "He
was very gracious. But any rate I didn't know what I was going to say until the
morning of the Prayer breakfast, and when I had awakened that morning, I had a
sense of calm and peace, and I knew exactly what I was going to say and when I
got up there and started talking, I was totally oblivious to who was to my
right or who was to my left. I was talking to the American people and I was in
a zone. ( pause) Sometimes when I look back at it, and I just
say, was that me?.."
That Me?" Ben Carson, when
looking back in amazement when he spoke at the 2013 National Prayer breakfast knew
in his mind that it was not just in his human intellect or nature to speak out and confront the poor decisions and policies of a man in the most
powerful position in the world as President of the United States. "Was
that me? Ben asked himself. Ben knew it was the Lord speaking through him
but just could not identify how the Lord did it like the many times in his walk
with the Lord when Ben knew it was the Lord involved in the many major
decisions and actions in Ben's life.
As soon as Ben Carson
said, "was that me,", I turned to Ruth with a grin of knowledge on my
face, as she was turning to me with the same grin of knowledge. We both smiled
in agreement with the same thoughts retracted from the recesses of our memory
and our past personal spiritual experiences, one of which, was when the power
of God supernaturally took control of His servant, when I also said, "Is that me?" on Saturday, January
25, 1997 at about 10:30 am at a Messianic congregation in Owings Mills,
Maryland. I did not know at that time, until many years later, the Biblical
concept in the scriptures of being beside yourself explaining how God could control people and yes, even a jackass  to
speak messages of warning, rebuking, teaching,
correction and cause forty plus writers
of the Holy Bible to write down exactly the commanding thoughts of God placed in their minds that justifies the
Scripture verse in 2Timothy 3:16,17: ". . . All
Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for
reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God
maybe perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works . . ."
Yes, on that Saturday morning
on January 25, of 1997, the Lord Jesus Christ, by the power of His Holy Spirit caused me to be beside myself, supernaturally took control of my mind, voice, and physical parts of my body to
not only deliver a prophetic message, but as a result of intensive
biblical research of this prophecy, resulted in revealing a major disobedience
and rebellion to the Word of God, not only by some of the men and women in this
congregation, but for the whole Christian Church in America. To understand this
supernatural event and how God chooses His servants to speak in His behalf, it
is worthy to tell the story to show, how once the servant of God surrenders his
will to God, how God's will supersedes the will of His servant(s), which is
further confirmed by His already written word in 2Peter1:19-21: ". . . We have also a more sure word of prophecy;
whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark
place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the
Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the
prophecy, preaching, teaching, admonishing
and correction, comes not by man's will
but comes by the will of God through His
Holy Spirit with
the intruding thought, "Is/was that me?" just after I either
spoke a prophetic word, or acted in a manner against my human nature and desire
of literal or figurative self-preservation in thought, word or deed, when I unknowingly was no longer in
control of my faculties, but became beside myself when the Spirit of Jesus
Christ, the Holy Spirit took control of my thoughts words and physical
actions. Jesus was accused of being beside Himself when He was publically preaching His messianic
message of hope and salvation against the will of the Pharisees, who were
looking for every opportunity to kill him if they had the chance, because His message contradicted many of
their manmade traditions. Saintly Paul, the apostle, whose former name was Saul,
before he had his personal conversion experience with Jesus Christ, was the 1st century equivalent of the Nazi Jew exterminator, Heinrich Himmler, who, instead
of rounding up Jews to be shipped in box-cars for extermination in the gas
chambers, rounded up hundreds, possibly thousands of Christians to be handed
over for imprisonment and eventually put to death by the Roman government, also was accused of being
beside himself in Acts 26:24, when Festus accused Paul of being beside himself (mad).
The Holy Spirit of God caused Jesus Christ, Paul, and other servants, while being beside themselves/ourselves, to
publicly preach the Kingdom of God, all along facing the danger of persecution
and death from the Pharisees and other children of Satan who oppose God and His Word.
knew the many times I discussed with her how the Holy Spirit took control of my mind, speech and even my physical self when He caused me to
be beside myself for God to take
control of the situation. To be continued
22: 28: ". . . And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto
Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that
thou hast smitten me these three times?.. (Needless to say the ass was beside herself.)
