Note these words of Christ in the New Testament which contain a great mystical truth: "I speak to them, not in words of men, but in words of spirit." Spirit, as Christ referred to it, meant God. In effect, he was saying that it was God speaking through him. The Jesus part of his personality, or his personal ego mind, was set aside so that God's Presence or Spirit could speak directly through him.
In the latter part of the twentieth century, the practice of channeling became popular among many people. They would gather to hear words of wisdom spoken, supposedly, through higher beings; gods, goddesses, spirit guides, and angels. No matter which of these was the hypothetical source for the spoken channeling, all shared one common denominator, which was that all information came from an outside source. People seemingly received information from "something" outside their own minds.
Then, and up to the time of this writing, people doing the channeling had a shared belief; all claimed that what was being channeled was from a source other than God. This is easy to understand inasmuch as channelers, except perhaps for a few, claim to be mystics.
