worship-4-3-1Welcome to another ‘TESTIMONY TUESDAY.’ Lord willing, at least once a month on Tuesdays, whenever I come across a video or an article that either presents a Biblical testimony of someone coming to the understanding  of the true  gospel, or a testimony of someone who was set free from a cult or some form of spiritual deception, etc., I will post it for you with the hope that it will bless and encourage you, and, above all, so that God would receive glory and honor for setting these people free.

It is also my hope and prayer that when I share these testimonies with you on Tuesdays, God will use His Word, and the Biblical truth presented in these testimonies to set many other people free from the same bondage and spiritual deception that the people in the videos and articles I choose to share with you have been set free from.

And now for today’s TESTIMONY TUESDAY:

Warren B Smith was once deeply involved in the New Age Movement. Now he is a follower of Jesus Christ, and he speaks at many conferences warning Christians of the many ways that the New Age/New Spirituality teachings are entering the church and leading many astray. His emphasis is always on making Christians realize just how important it is to test the teachings of ‘Christian’ leaders and the messages in popular books claiming to have a Christian message (such as The Shack) against the truth of God’s Word so they will not be deceived.

Even though he exposes many false teachers and their teachings in his presentations, his messages are always focused on God’s Word and he is quick to point out how Jesus Christ warned about spiritual deception as being one of the signs that would point to His soon return.

I truly appreciate Warren Smith’s dedication to warning believers in Jesus Christ of what is taking place in the name of Christianity today, and I hope and pray that you will listen to his testimony when time allows.

Spiritual deception and mysticism in the church are matters that weigh heavily upon my heart, as well, because of what I have experienced in the past, and because of what I am hearing being discussed in a positive light on Christian radio stations and what I am reading about concerning what is being taught in Spiritual Formation classes at many churches today. Lord willing, I will be writing many posts addressing these matters in the future because you really need to be aware of what is taking place these days so you will not be deceived by these teachings.

Lord willing, I will also be doing reviews on some of the books that Warren Smith has written later on this year, as well as other books on this very important topic. So for those of you who have expressed an interest in seeing book reviews posted on this blog, stay tuned for those.

And now, it is my great pleasure to present Warren B Smith to you:

 

 

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.”         (1 Timothy 4:1)

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” (2 Corinthians 11:13,15)

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”         (2 Peter 2:1)

“And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Matthew 24:3-8)

“And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.” (Acts 20:25-31)
