Capture Test the spirits 1 John 4 1Have you unknowingly been lured into New Age mystical practices by teachers claiming that certain “new ways to pray” will bring you closer to God? Have you signed up for classes in Spiritual Formation? Have you been involved in Centering Prayer , Contemplative Prayer, or Lectio Divina ? Well, this new series of posts in the new Category of posts that I have entitled ‘MYSTICISM MONDAYS‘ will attempt to peel back the layers of spiritual deception and present you with the truth of God’s Word that will expose the dangers of these practices. Lord willing, at least once a month on a Monday, I will be sharing teachings with you from Christian experts on the subject, some of whom have even been personally involved with these dangerous practices. All of these teachings that I will be presenting to you will focus on many Scriptures; those who speak on these topics will not just be talking about these practices, because it’s only the truth of God’s Word that will expose the dangers of these practices and set a deceived person free.

Lord willing, when time allows, I will be writing many posts in the future zeroing in on specific Christian programming and Christian teachers who are promoting these deceptive practices, but since my time is getting rather limited these days because of other important responsibilities that I have, I will oftentimes simply be sharing a video with you.

When time allows, I truly hope and pray that you will take the time to listen to these messages and read the upcoming posts on this important topic so that you can be aware of these false teachings that are deceiving many Christians –possibly even you.

Please test the teachings of all those whom you listen to against Scripture as God’s Word shows us that we are to do. (Acts 17:11)

Now for today’s Mysticism Monday:

 

Before I get to the main video that I am featuring for you today, here are a few things that I’d like to share with you first:

Have you been noticing how some pastors and teachers have been focusing on the Manifest Presence of God and wanting to see the Glory of God? Have you also noticed some of the ‘Christian’ Conferences that have been taking place are focusing on the same things? There is the MANIFEST PRESENCE CONFERENCE with Bill Johnson and Randy Clark. There is also the PRESENCE CONFERENCE put on by Phil and Chris Pringle who both pastor C3 Church in Sydney Australia. Their conferences frequently features Steven Furtick:

 

If you’re interested you can read a review of this conference by Church Watch Central and listen to Steven Furtick’s message HERE:

I don’t know about you, but when I first began to hear preaching and Conferences focusing on ‘The Presence‘ and ‘the Manifest Presence of God‘ and ‘wanting to see God’s glory,’ it truly began to bother me and cause red flags to pop up as well as alarm bells to go off in my discernment detector, especially when I began to hear Pastor James MacDonald of Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows begin to focus on the “Manifest Presence of God” in the last couple of years before I finally left in January of 2012 after the Elephant Room 2 Conference! Many Scriptures began to flood through my mind to make me realize that this is not Biblical! (Hebrews 11:6, John 20:29, 1 Peter 1:8, 1 Corinthians 6:19, 2 Corinthians 6:16, Romans 8:11, 2 Timothy 1:14 to name a few).

There was the Pastor’s Conference that took place on June 8th and 9th of 2014, in which Rick Warren, Francis Chan, and James MacDonald were some of the featured speakers. As you can see, the theme was SHOW US YOUR GLORY:

Capture 'SHOW US YOUR GLORY' Pastor's Conference 2014

And the following conference just took place on August 26th – 28th of 2015 at Victory Convention Centre in New Zealand and featured Bill Johnson of Bethel Church, Redding CA, Randy Clark of Global Awakening, Russell Evans of Planetshakers, Banning Liebscher of Jesus Culture:

 

The people who spoke or sang at that conference are known to focus on unbiblical manifestations. Here are some videos with some example of these disturbing manifestations that I am referring to, as well as information that you need to be aware of:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There will also be a Manifest Presence Conference in 2016:

Finally, here is the video that I am featuring for you today that will bring some Biblical perspective on ‘The Presence‘ that many of these Conferences seem to be focusing on because their focus is on having  “experiences” with God. I wanted to share this with you so that you will not be deceived by the many who are teaching this and so that you will realize just how unbiblical this truly is. This message was given by Pastor Larry DeBruyn of GUARDING HIS FLOCK:

 

 

When time allows, I highly encourage you to read THESE ARTICLES that Pastor Larry DeBruyn wrote in great detail that focus on “The Presence.” I shared them with you in one of my previous posts, but they are so good that I also wanted to share them with you again in this post.

Here is the description of his teachings in this series that I found on the HERESCOPE BLOG:

“The original article “The Present of His Presence” served as an apologetic, laying the solid Biblical groundwork necessary to refute the newly emerging Second Pentecost teaching by the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and International House of Prayer (IHOP) leaders, which was described in our subsequent 6-part article series.”


Thank you for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to read some of my posts and poems.

God Bless You

UPDATE: I will not be able to finish writing the post that I was hoping to finish by tonight. Lord willing, I hope to finish it by the end of the week.

Capture Beth Moore Living Proof Simulcast Sept. 12, 2015SOURCE

(Updated 9/8/15) Last year I discovered after the fact, that my former church for over 14 1/2 years, Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows, hosted a ‘Beth Moore simulcast’ at their Lake Zurich location:Capture Beth Moore Simulcast Lake Zurich Harvest Sept 20 2014This didn’t surprise me, since Beth Moore’s Bible studies were always  highly promoted while I attended Harvest (June 1997-January 2012), and I know for a fact that they still are. But since the simulcast had already taken place, I decided not to write about it.

However, two weeks ago I began to wonder if there was going to be a Beth Moore simulcast this year, and if so, I also wondered if HBC would once  again be sponsoring it. Thanks to Glenn Chatfield who writes at THE WATCHMAN’S BAGPIPES, I discovered while reading his post, ‘RANDOM ABERRATIONS, APOSTASIES, AND HERESIES’,  that indeed there is going to be “another simulcast for churches across the nation.” After searching to see if HBC would once again be one of the churches that would be sponsoring this event, this is what I found:

Capture Harvest Bible Chapel sponsoring a Beth Moore Simulcast Sept. 2015SOURCE

 Capture Beth Moore Simulcast - Information 2015SOURCE

Capture Audacious book trailerThe video I originally saw on YouTube was removed by the owner. Search for ‘Audacious Book Trailer’ and you’ll be able to play this video.

Will your church be bringing Beth Moore to your community on September 12, 2015? If so, please take time to listen and to read the very important information that I have added to this post for you below. Some of the following videos are excerpts from ‘James Robison’s Awaken Now Conference’ that took place in January of 2014.

Yes, Beth Moore is a very gifted speaker, but I simply ask you to please put aside the feelings that you have about her, and pray and ask God to give you discernment before watching the videos below, as well as before you read the articles that I added for you under Further Reading. If you plan on signing up for this simulcast, please make certain that you pray for discernment, and be a Berean (Acts 17:11) and test all that she says against God’s Word.

Beth Moore: “We so desperately need, so desperately need a fresh awakening…”

Beth Moore: “Be prepared for scoffers.”

In the following video starting at the 2:38-3:39 minute mark, you will hear Beth Moore talk about the scoffers who will come and speak out against the awakening and downpours; the outpouring that she believes God is telling her is coming:

“What God began to show me, is that it would not just come from the…mean spirited. The scoffers…I believe that God put on my heart…please test the spirit, pray and see if this…is confirmed to you in prayer and in the study of the Word.. I believe that He placed it on my heart that the scoffers will have an alternative answer for everything; an alternative for every single thing we see…there will be an alternative. They will not see it as the hand of God; an alternate answer. Unity will be called defection. Brokenness will be called instability. Grace will be called compromise. And the genuinely prophetic will be called false teaching. You see if this does not happen.”

 

In other words, Beth Moore is claiming that she is receiving extra Biblical revelation from God, and those of us who stand for Biblical truth and test things in light of Scripture will be the ones looked at as “the scoffers” if something does come and we see the need to warn other Christians that this “outpouring” is not of God because it does not line up with God’s Word. Those who choose to listen to her message and do not test her words against Scripture are having their minds manipulated/prepared to see those of us who oppose this so-called outpouring from God as the ones who are in the wrong.

Today, more than ever before, we must be certain that we are followers of Jesus Christ, and not a follower of any man (or woman) and their ministry. We must know the voice of our Shepherd and follow Him and Him alone, because spiritual deception will become so intense that only those of us who are truly following Him and reading His Word and are aware of the many spiritually deceptive traps waiting to lure us into its grips, will be protected from being deceived. 

Could the following videos be an indication of the kind of “unity” and “grace” that “God put on her heart?”

 

 

 

 

 

 

When time allows, please consider listening to the information presented in the following Playlist which compares the teachings of Catholicism  to Biblical Christianity. I hope and pray that you will then realize what many of us have already come to realize, which is that there can be no unity with Catholics because many of their teachings not only contradict God’s Word, but also the Sacrifice of the Mass denies the sufficiency of Jesus’ once for all propitiatory sacrifice.

I was a former Catholic who attended twelve years of Catholic school, went through Catechism classes, made my First Holy Communion, was Confirmed, and went to Mass thousands of times.  As I began to read the Catholic Bible and compare the teachings of the Catechism of the Catholic Church to the Catholic Bible, I came to an understanding of the sufficiency of Jesus’ death as completely satisfying the wrath of God that He had towards me because of my sins. The joy that filled my heart after God helped me to see what Jesus accomplished as He suffered and died in my place, was buried, and arose again, made me shudder in horror as God opened my ears to hear Jesus being called a ‘victim’ during the Sacrifice of the Mass. Fear and bondage kept me there for another year, but the truth of God’s Word set me free, and His peace released me from the fear that held me in its grip for the many years that I was a Catholic. It is my prayer that many Catholics will come to know the truth, and that the truth of His Word will set them free and fill them with joy and peace, as well. (If you’d like to read the extremely long version of my testimony, just click on the ‘My Testimony‘ Category at the top of my blog).

 

 

Not only is the line between genuine and counterfeit Christianity being blurred, but also New Age/New Spirituality practices are being welcomed into the church and are being fully embraced by many Christians who are unaware of the fact that these “new ways to pray” are leading them down a path to spiritual deception. The only way that we as Christians can tell the difference is to read and study God’s Word so that we will know it so well that we will be able to discern truth from error as soon as we hear it.

Jesus warned about false teachers and of the spiritual deception that would take place in the last days, and His Word also says that it will come even from among those who say they are believers. (Acts 20:25-31) So why is it that many today fail or even refuse to test the messages of their favorite Bible teachers such as Beth Moore in light of  Scripture as we are shown to do in His Word? (Acts 17:11) (1 Thessalonians 5:21,22)

Besides knowing God’s Word very well, it’s also very important to be ‘aware of Satan’s devices ‘ (2 Corin. 11:2b) so that we will not be led down one of the many spiritually deceptive paths that are causing multitudes of  Christians to become deceived today. That’s why I am so thankful for ministries such as Lighthouse Trails Research, Herescope, Deception in the Church, and many others ministries that expose things such as Contemplative Prayer, Spiritual Formation, Lectio Divina, and the many other unbiblical, mystical practices that are being presented to Christians today as ways to connect with God on a more personal and intimate level.

The terms “awakening” and “awaken” as well as the call for ‘unity’ that Beth Moore and others who profess to be Christians are speaking about, are also echoing throughout the world of the occult. Below you will find some examples of how these terms are permeating our world today. The unity that they speak of is not in any way related to the “unity” that Jesus spoke of in John 17, but rather a unity in order to achieve higher levels of consciousness related to the New Age Movement, in which the ultimate goal is to ‘awaken’ you to your own divinity. (Lord willing, I will be writing about this in great detail in an upcoming post).

The following video plays on a person’s emotions and speaks about having a ‘spiritual awakening.’  Roger Ingram, who created this video says:

“One night I decide to dedicate myself completely to answering my biggest question: Does God really exist? Is there anything truly greater in this world?”

While it is true that many today have those questions,  sadly this video go on to briefly share about the experience that some people had in their ‘spiritual awakening.’  Obviously none of them were Biblical, and all of them focused on occultic practices such as ‘out of body experiences’ and experiences that brought about feelings of ‘pure love.’

 

In these videos, Andrew Strom shares how the Kundalini awakening that those involved in the New Age Movement speaks of, experience the same feelings of pure love when the serpent power that is said to lie at the base of the spine is awakened:

 

Christian writer and speaker, Warren B Smith, who was once deeply involved in the New Age Movement, gives an excellent teaching on more ways that the New Age Movement is now infiltrating the church by speaking about “oneness” and “unity,” as well as ‘The Shack,’ Contemplative Prayer, and much more, in these videos:

 CONCERNING BETH MOORE’S INVOLVEMENT IN MYSTICISM

Below is a screen shot that I captured from a video that clearly shows you what the focus of this conference was by the bold statement that was placed on banners that were hung across the stage. This video has now been removed from YouTube. (UPDATE 9/8/15: See video under Related Videos for another one I recently found). The following video will address this and the fact that during the Passion Conference 2012 the audience was told to “Pause and be still and allow Jesus to speak to you,” and the dangers of seeking to have God ‘speak to us’ when He speaks to us through His written Word. God has already spoken to us through His one and only Son, Jesus Christ   –the Word made flesh. (Read Hebrews 1:1-3 and John 1:1-5)

Capture Jesus Speak To Me - Passion 2012 Conference

 

As you can see from the quick capture below, the researchers at Lighthouse Trails have been strongly warning about Beth Moore’s involvement in and promotion of mysticism:

When time allows, I hope that you will consider reading many more articles that Lighthouse Trails has on Beth Moore, Contemplative Prayer, Mysticism, and much more, so that you can be well informed and come to realize the urgent need to constantly test all the teachings of everyone who claims to be teaching God’s Word).

ANALYZING SOME OF BETH MOORE’S MESSAGES

 

 

IN CLOSING

If your church is sponsoring Beth Moore’s simulcast, or presenting Beth Moore ‘Bible studies’ for the women at your church, and you share the   serious concerns that many of us have about her teachings, consider   sharing your valid concerns with the leadership at your church. Be prepared though. I have heard of many women sharing how their valid concerns were ignored when they brought information to back up what they were saying. No matter how they may react to what you say, just remain faithful to ‘earnestly contend for the faith.’

If you have come to the point of placing your trust in Jesus Christ alone for your salvation and live to simply honor Him in all that you do and say and stand for Biblical truth, you will one day hear Him say to you, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” If we keep that in mind, it makes the rejection and loneliness that we sometimes feel from other Christians who refuse to listen to our warnings less painful.

If you have not yet come to the point of placing your trust in Jesus Christ alone for your salvation, I pray that you will take the time to seek God in His Word and ask Him to reveal the truth to you. Your eternity is at stake. There is no second chance after death. There is a heaven and a hell, and Jesus paid your debt to sin in full. God’s Word says that “now is the day of salvation.” (2 Corinthians 6:2) Tomorrow is promised to no one.

Do not place your trust in the teachings of men (or women) or of a certain church or religious system. Look to Jesus Christ alone for your salvation, and read His Word alone for the truth that will set you free. Test the teachings of all whom you choose to listen to against God’s Word, because spiritual deception will continue to intensify as the return of Jesus Christ continues to draw closer and closer. Are you ready?

 

RELATED VIDEOS:

(Added 9/8/15) In this video you will not only see Beth Moore at Passion 2012, the banner that says “Jesus speak to me,” and hear a portion of what many to believe was Lectio Divina, but you will also see more evidence that demonstrate why many Christians have valid concerns about Beth Moore:

 

Test Joyce Meyer’s teachings against Scripture, and you will find that she is clearly a false teacher:

 

I added this video to demonstrate to you not only how many others in ministry are speaking about an awakening, but also to ask you to discern if the opening of the Awakening Revival at Celebration Church looks like the beginning of true revival to you:

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” (Acts 17:11)

“For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.” (Acts 20:27-31)

“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.” (2 Peter 2:1)

“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ.  And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light,  It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness.  Their end will be what their actions deserve.”        (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)

“Watch out for false prophets.  They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.  By their fruit you will recognize them.  Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?  Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.  “Not everyone who says to Me,  ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.  Many will say to Me on that day,  ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’  Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you.  Away from Me you evildoers!’” (Matthew 7:15-23)

“In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom He made the universe.  The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful Word.  After He had  provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.  SO He became as much superior to the angels as the name He has inherited is superior to theirs.  For to which of the angels did God ever say,  “You are My Son; today I have become Your Father.”  (Hebrews 1:1-5) 

“But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.  For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.” (2 Corinthians 11:3,4)

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever.  Amen.  I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel– which is really no gospel at all.  Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.  But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned.  As we have already said, so now I say again:  If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!” (Galatians 1:3-9)

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:10-12)

“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,” (Acts 3:19)

“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.” (2 Corinthians 7:10)

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn, and wail. Change your laughter to mourning, and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up.” (James 4:7-10)

“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)

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of His appearing and His kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when  men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.” (2 Timothy 3:16,17-4:1-4)

“But evil men and imposters will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:13)

UPDATE

Lord willing, another new post coming soon.

Capture Eyes with tears 1Welcome to another post in the series of posts that I have entitled, Warning You With Tears Wednesdays. Lord willing, at least once a month on Wednesdays I will be writing and sharing one of these posts with you so that I can make you all aware of some important information that I come across on the Internet that you may not have heard about.
Since I knew that I would soon be starting a new part-time job (and I did in June) and that my free time would then be somewhat limited, I was trying to think of something that I could write on a regular basis that would be short and to the point (at least that was my intention). And since I am a detective-at-heart and desire to make you all aware of the importance of testing things that pastors and teachers say (and do) in light of Scripture (Acts 17:11), the idea to do these posts — as well as the name — came to my mind in November of 2014, based on Acts 20:26-31:

“For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.”

So with all of that in mind, here is what I’d like to share with you in today’s WARNING YOU WITH TEARS WEDNESDAY:

There have been so many Bible versions coming out that have caused many of us who are Bible believing Christians to cringe and to be horrified by how God’s Word has been altered. And now Glenn Chatfield, who writes at THE WATCHMAN’S BAGPIPES, shares with us about the latest version that’s perfect for those who are “lovers of self” (2 Timothy 3:2), and you can read about it HEREWhile you’re there, please take some time to read through the many very good articles that he has written. He exposes false teachings and also addresses “discernment issues as they relate to the current state of society and the church.” 

Speaking of being horrified, the more we learn about what takes place behind closed doors concerning Planned Parenthood, the clearer it becomes that not only are the hearts of all people hard and sinful — some more harder and more sinful than others — but also it becomes evident of the truth declared in God’s Word that everyone is in need of a Savior –Jesus Christ. HERE is the latest heart-wrenching information from LifeSite News.

Berean Research also revealed more information to us that was just released yesterday concerning Planned Parenthood which I happened to see posted on Facebook this morning: THIS ARTICLE which reports a story of “sheer evil” gives more solid evidence that in the eyes of some, the value of human life is reduced simply to dollar $ign$.

I hope and pray that after reading these horrific stories, that you will be moved to earnestly pray and speak out for the precious lives of the unborn as THESE people and many others are doing.

The lie that women are often, if not always told when they walk into an abortion clinic, is: “It’s just a clump of tissue.” To destroy that lie, below you will see one of many pictures that a woman took of one of the two precious babies that she miscarried; one at just seven weeks, and the other at eight weeks. Truly we are fearfully and wonderfully made by our Creator (Psalm 139):

Capture Mom posts amazing photos of her babies miscarried at 7 and 8 weeks on FacebookYou can see more of Mindy Raelynne Danison’s amazing pictures HERE.

Here are FOUR POWERFUL QUOTES FROM ABORTIONISTS WHO BECAME PRO-LIFE – LIVE ACTION NEWS

Are you a “Christ follower” or a “Christian.” Berean Research shows us of the very important distinction that is being made these days between the two, and how many are out to destroy Christianity in THIS article. (When time allows, please consider reading the many White Paper research articles on Berean Research’s website that are filled with very helpful information on topics such as Contemplative Prayer, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, the New Age Movement, and much more).

In the following article, Roger Oakland, of UNDERSTAND THE TIMES , shares with us the top ten ways the church is being led astray and down the: PATHWAY OF APOSTASY When time allows, please consider reading more of his many good articles in which he makes us as Christians aware of what is taking place within Christianity today and how many are being lured into mysticism which directs many people down the road that leads to Rome.

Speaking of apostasy, yesterday, Tuesday August 26, ’15, Glenn Chatfield of The Watchman’s Bagpipes shared in his post how he and his wife are among the many of us who have sadly watched the downward spiral of James MacDonald of Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows. You can read about it HERE

Lighthouse Trails Research just released a very informative NEW BOOKLET TRACT – A TRIP TO INDIA – TO LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT HINDUISM AND YOGA When time allows, please be sure to read their many important articles warning you of the false and occultic teachings entering the church today so that you can be well informed.

I’ll end this post with something that will bring God the glory that He is so deserving of:

Here’s a time lapse video from Dakotalapse that will truly show you the amazing beauty of God’s creation:

There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” (Psalm 19:1-4)

LORD WILLING, TWO NEW POSTS COMING SOON

Capture Test the spirits 1 John 4 1Have you unknowingly been lured into New Age mystical practices by teachers claiming that certain “new ways to pray” will bring you closer to God? Have you signed up for classes in Spiritual Formation? Have you been involved in Centering Prayer or Contemplative Prayer? Well, this new series of posts in the new Category of posts that I have entitled ‘MYSTICISM MONDAYS‘ will attempt to peel back the layers of spiritual deception and present you with the truth of God’s Word that will expose the dangers of these practices. Lord willing, at least once a month on a Monday, I will be sharing teachings with you from Christian experts on the subject, some of whom have even been personally involved with these dangerous practices. All of these teachings that I will be presenting to you will focus on many Scriptures; those who speak on these topics will not just be talking about these practices, because it’s only the truth of God’s Word that will expose the dangers of these practices and set a deceived person free.

Lord willing, when time allows, I will be writing many posts in the future zeroing in on specific Christian programming and Christian teachers who are promoting these deceptive practices, but since my time is getting rather limited these days because of other important responsibilities that I have, I will oftentimes simply be sharing a video with you.

When time allows, I truly hope and pray that you will take the time to listen to these messages and read the upcoming posts on this important topic so that you can be aware of these false teachings that are deceiving many Christians –possibly even you.

Please test the teachings of all those whom you listen to against Scripture as God’s Word shows us that we are to do. (Acts 17:11)

Now for today’s Mysticism Monday:

Capture Warren B Smith - Truth - The Whole Truth - LivestreamPicture of Warren B Smith was quick captures from a video of his presentation ‘TRUTH – The Whole Truth,’ at The Berean Call Conference: http://livestream.com/bereancallconference/events/3276912

Warren B Smith was once very deeply involved in the New Age Movement. But by the grace of God, after many years his eyes were opened to see that evil exists, and that the spiritual world that he was once involved with is very real and very dangerous! He also came to know who the true Jesus Christ is and repented of these practices and placed his trust in Jesus Christ alone. Now he writes books, as well as speaks at many churches, so that he can warn Christians how these same New Age practices — which are now cloaked in Christian terminology — are entering many churches these days and are sadly being embraced by many Christians and leading them astray.

You can visit his website HERE where you will find MANY ARTICLES that he has written on the topics of spiritual deception in the church and the New Age Movement. All of his articles have been written to warn Christians of the importance of being alert and aware of what is taking place in the name of Christianity so that you will not be deceived, as well as to make Christians realize the importance of knowing God’s Word so very well that we will not be deceived by false teachers because we will be able to discern the genuine from the counterfeit.

You can also find many more articles that Warren has written in which he also warns Christians of the many spiritually deceptive practices, as well as warning of the many false teachers who are presenting these New Age/New Spirituality practices to Christians through Contemplative Prayer, etc., at LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH

Warren recently presented this message at Calvary Chapel Elk Grove, IL When time allows, please listen, and learn to discern:

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of His appearing and His kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when  men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

“For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.” (Acts 20:26-31)

“But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.  For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.” (2 Corinthians 11:3,4)

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever.  Amen.  I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel– which is really no gospel at all.  Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.  But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned.  As we have already said, so now I say again:  If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!” (Galatians 1:3-9)

“But evil men and imposters will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:13)

 “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” (Matthew 7: 13-15)

UPDATE: LORD WILLING, NEW POSTS COMING SOON

 

#NewAgeMovement #ContemplativePrayer #MysticismInTheChurch #SpiritualDeceptionInTheChurch #WarrenSmith #LearnToDiscern

Capture Eyes with tears 1Welcome to another post in the series of posts that I have entitled, Warning You With Tears Wednesdays. Lord willing, at least once a month on Wednesdays I will be writing and sharing one of these posts with you so that I can make you all aware of some important information that I come across on the Internet that you may not have heard about.
Since I knew that I would soon be starting a new part-time job (and I did in June) and that my free time would then be somewhat limited, I was trying to think of something that I could write on a regular basis that would be short and to the point (at least that was my intention). And since I am a detective-at-heart and desire to make you all aware of the importance of testing things that pastors and teachers say (and do) in light of Scripture (Acts 17:11), the idea to do these posts — as well as the name — came to my mind in November of 2014, based on Acts 20:26-31:

“For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.”

So with all of that in mind, here is what I’d like to share with you in today’s WARNING YOU WITH TEARS WEDNESDAY:

Those of you who are Bible believing Christians and are not only stunned at the acceleration of world events, the rise of moral decay, and the apostasy that we are witnessing among many professing Christians these days, but also are shocked at the fact that many Christians are embracing the many mystical, New Age practices that are entering many churches these days, you are probably as certain as I am that the return of Jesus Christ may be sooner than any of us could even imagine! Just consider these new hi-tech devises that are enticing people to buy into these ideas! Sadly, many will be seduced into purchasing them without even giving any thought to the fact that they are revealing highly personal information to more people than they realize, and they don’t stop to think of the many possible consequences! As you read these articles, keep in mind what God’s Word reveals to us in Chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation!

For those of you who enjoyed some of the past movies produced by the Kendrick Brothers, such as Flywheel, Facing The Giants, Fireproof, and Courageous and have been alarmed to hear that Beth Moore and Priscilla Schirer, are in their new movie, War Room, here’s a very balanced review of the movie written  by  Seth Dunn:

WAR ROOM: A REVIEW OF THE MOVIE AND THE INDUSTRY SURROUNDING IT

 

 

If you’d like, you can also read a post that I previously wrote concerning Priscilla Shirer and Beth Moore that has a lot of additional information that I found on Lighthouse Trails Research. This information will show you that they both promote Contemplative Prayer and mysticism:

HARVEST BIBLE CHAPEL LEADERSHIP, CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP, AND THE LACK OF BIBLICAL DISCERNMENT

And speaking of mysticism, here’s an article that I found posted at  Lighthouse Trails Research with information you need to know so that you will not be deceived by those who may try to lead you into having “experiences with God” instead of telling you that you will come to know God through His Word, the Bible. Beware of those who may tell you:  “God can be found only in the silence.”

NEW BOOKLET TRACT: BIG NOISY GOD — DISPELLING THE RUMOR THAT GOD CAN BE FOUND “ONLY IN THE SILENCE”

 

For those of you who have been waiting for the release of Ray Comfort’s full movie, Audacity, here it is! Let’s be in prayer that God will open the eyes and hearts of those who will choose to watch this movie, that they will see and respond to the truth presented in this movie — especially the truth of God’s Word that is shared in this movie — no matter what a person’s reason may be for watching it!

Do you remember this video of Jefferson Bethke that went viral when it was posted on 1/10/12? (Amount of views at the time that I posted this video: 29,917,192).

And do you know that discerning sense that you get when you first hear about something  Christian related becoming very popular, such as the above  video, as well as Purpose Driven Life, The Shack, and Jesus Calling? Well, as a friend played the above video for me a couple of years ago, I sensed something was not quite right, but I never got around to doing research on it. Then, just last week, I came across this information posted by Lighthouse Trails Research. (I’ll give you a hint: Jeff Bethke attended Mark Driscoll’s church).

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: WHAT ABOUT JEFF BETHKE’S BOOK JESUS > RELIGION? — A BOOK WITH AN AGENDA

NEW BOOKLET TRACT: THEY HATE CHRISTIANITY BUT LOVE (ANOTHER) JESUS

I’ll end this post with another article by Lighthouse Trails Research that was written by Harry A. Ironside to bring glory to God:

IRONSIDE: A WONDERFUL EXPECTATION!–HE IS COMING AGAIN!

AMEN! Come, Lord Jesus! But please first draw our loved ones to Yourself who have not yet placed their full trust in Your completely propitiatory sacrifice on the cross as full payment for their sins! Please grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of Satan who has taken them captive to do his will, and that they would choose to do Your will. Fill them with a godly sorrow that brings repentance that leads them to salvation, and that they would not just have a worldly sorrow that only leads to death. Help them to come to know of Your mercy, Your grace, and Your forgiveness, and that they would choose this day to serve You. In Jesus name I pray. Amen! (Prayer based on: John 6:44, 2 Timothy 2:25,26, 2 Corinthians 7:10, Titus 3:4-7)

Thank you very much for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to read some of my posts and poems.

God Bless You

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.  And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation Chapter 13 King James Version (KJV) by Public Domain

“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.

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:6-8)

He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by His grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.” (Titus 3:4-8)

BEWARE OF BETH MOORE’S DANGEROUS BIBLE TWISTING

WHEN WE BEHOLD YOUR GLORY

WOULD YOU BE READY

Capture EVE - Suggested post on Facebook(UPDATED 8/17/15 See added  information and video of Wm P Young speaking about his new book ‘Eve’ below).

Though I am not among the many who are addicted to Facebook, I must admit that I am growing to appreciate the many suggested posts that are generated by Facebook for me to check out. The above picture caught my attention a few days ago, and upon reading what William Paul Young (WPY) said concerning The Shack “proposing a fundamental paradigm shift,” I decided to do some research on his newest novel  —Eve.

Even though The Shack has always been promoted as a work of fiction, many of us know that after some people finished reading it, their theology, as well as their view of the character and nature of God as revealed in Scripture, were dramatically altered by the emotionally moving story and messages presented in this book. Here are just a few from among the many comments that I found on Amazon and YouTube that will attest to that. I have also included comments by those who have discernment and expressed their valid concerns about The Shack:

William Paul Young is a professing Christian, and yet, as you can see in the quick capture below, he claims that even though “the story is fiction,” he goes on to say that the conversations in The Shack are: “…very real and true.” “…all real, all true.” Thus he is claiming that the messages presented in The Shack were given to him by God, which will lead people to believe that God speaks outside of His Word and still gives new revelations today, and will cause people to be lured into mysticism through Spiritual Formation and Contemplative Prayer. (Lord willing, I will be addressing mysticism in another post later on this year).

Capture The Shack - William P Young - portion of article concerning if the story is true(SOURCE)

Even more disturbing is the fact that most of the messages presented in The Shack contradict Scripture. Here’s an example:

Mack to Papa: “Aren’t you the one spilling out great bowls of wrath and throwing people into a burning lake of fire?”

Papa: “I don’t need to punish sin. Sin is its own punishment, devouring you from the inside. It’s not my purpose to punish sin; it’s my joy to cure it.” (Page 119-120) (SOURCE)<- Click here to read more).

Here’s an example of the New Age teachings presented in The Shack:

“The Incarnate Jesus is speaking to Mack: “God, who is the ground of all being, dwells in around and through all things–ultimately emerging as the real.” (Page 112) (SOURCE)

(Please read the reviews posted under ‘Further Reading’ for much more information).

WPY’s new book ‘Eve‘ will undoubtedly once again capture the hearts and minds of those who choose to read it. His creative way of putting a story together, as well as his ability to create characters that cause the reader to bond with them — sometimes on a very deep and personal level — will definitely affect certain Christians and their ability to discern, and even more so, will captivate the many people who are not Christians and are searching for hope and comfort because they have gone through deeply tragic circumstances in life.

Capture EVE - Description of William Paul Young's book on AmazonThose who choose to read Eve and have no knowledge of Biblical truth whatsoever, will begin to embrace not only a message that will most likely be contrary to Scripture in many ways like The Shack, but also they will very likely be presented with a God who will appeal to their sinful nature as well as to their flawed human reasoning, and therefore they will not view Him as the just and thrice Holy God that He truly is, as revealed throughout Scripture.

If you read the above description of Eve after first praying for discernment, you will realize that there are many things that are said which clearly indicate some problems. Consider the following statements:

“The Shack shattered our limited perceptions about God.”

By saying this, it implies that The Shack reveals a clearer understanding of who God is, which leads people to seek after new revelations, and leads people away from seeking God in His Word. However, remember that it claims to be a work of fiction.

Now let’s focus more on what WPY has to say about Eve:

“EVE will destroy harmful misconceptions about ourselves.”

At this point one can only speculate as to what those “harmful misconceptions about ourselves” may be, and what messages will be presented to the readers concerning what we are to believe about ourselves since the book has not yet been released. However, we can assume from how some people reacted after reading The Shack, that Eve will also alter and distort the beliefs — as well as Biblical truth — in the minds of many, as they will, once again, be emotionally moved by WPY’s powerful ability to present a story that can touch the heart, and characters whom readers can deeply connect with.

Note this statement:

“Eve is a bold, unprecedented exploration of the creation narrative, true to the original text and centuries of scholarship–yet with breathtaking discoveries that challenge traditional misconceptions about who we are and how we’re made.”

Making a bold statement like that will lead some readers to believe much of the information included in this book is Biblical, in spite of the fact that Eve is also classified as “fiction.”

The second part of that statement indicates that our traditional views on who we are and how we’re made are “misconceptions” and that they will be challenged by the information presented in ‘Eve.’

One can only wonder what “faulty interpretations” the readers of Eve will supposedly be freed from as this statement declares:

“Eve will free us from faulty interpretations that have corrupted human relationships since the Garden of Eden.”

Reading the description of ‘Eve‘ also seems to indicate that New Age beliefs will be presented to those who read it, just as there were New Age beliefs woven throughout The Shack. (See the first three articles below under ‘FURTHER READING’).

“With the aid of Healers and Scholars, John oversees her recovery.”

While many of us as Christians have compassion for WPY because he was sexually abused by his father when he was a child, and because his niece died in a horrible accident the day after she turned five, we must speak out and warn others about The Shack. WPY presents a God who will save everyone, thus he is presenting the people who read this book with the false teaching of Universalism.

Anything that presents itself as being “true to the original text” and yet also claims to be a work of fiction will undoubtedly be a mixture of truth and error which is where all deception begins.

I will not judge William Paul Young’s heart or his motive for writing Eve, but just as The Shack changed some people’s perception of God, the messages that will subtly be embedded within the pages of Eve will undoubtedly be another attempt to undermine the truth in God’s Word, and will sadly end up changing how many others view God and the truth presented in Scripture concerning Jesus Christ and the gospel.

**UPDATE 8/17/15 2:33 p.m. ** Please watch this video to hear all that he has to say.

 

William Paul Young just posted the above video about his new book ‘EVE’ an hour ago. His description alone hints at many concerns that those of us who are discerning Bible believing Christians will pick up on right away. Here is some of what he had to say:

“Part of the beautiful thing about the Hebrew Scriptures and the story in Genesis 1 and 2 ..and 3…is that it leaves a lot of gaps…it’s very concise…and those gaps allow…questions that become part of the unfolding way to look at it.” There will be some surprises, but I think it’s absolutely consistent with space that’s inside the story.”

“We think we know what the story says…we think we know exactly how it unfolds, and we bring those assumptions to any time we hear about it again. Inside this crafting of the narrative I’m looking at the spaces in between what’s given us, as well as staying true –I think– scholastically and academically, (Hmmm…notice that he didn’t say anything about “staying true to the Biblical text) but telling the story in such a way that it’s accessible to a teenager, and yet drawing out things that are beautiful and true,that are in there, but we missed it because of our assumptions.”

‘Eve’ may be another work of fiction like ‘The Shack,’ but sadly many will again adopt some of his ideas as part of their belief system concerning God and the Bible.

He states that it’s a work of “fiction,” but for him to say that he’s “looking at the spaces in between what’s given us,” it’s as if he’s hiding behind his claim that it’s a work of “fiction” to give him the freedom to add to the truth that is recorded in God’s Word without any consequences. However, since he claims to be a Christian, I believe that God will hold him accountable for misleading people by adding to Biblical truth in such a way that it will cause many to get a completely unbiblical view of who He is and who we are. He may be a very good writer and have the ability to create characters whom the reader will quickly connect with on a very deep and emotional level, but he should stay away from writing about anything that could mislead someone from the truth recorded in God’s Word.

Okay, I’m done venting now. I will be praying for William Paul Young, and hope that you will too!

Let’s commit all of this to God and pray that many will be led to read the Bible for themselves because of his book ‘Eve,’ and that God will give many eyes to see the truth that is in His Word. (End of update).

The release date for Eve is set for September 15th 2015, but this blogger here has no intentions of purchasing one. It is my desire only to send out a strong warning to those of you who have embraced the unbiblical view of God as presented in The Shack, and to warn all of you of the possible spiritually deceptive messages that may be lurking within the pages of Eve –especially those of you who are among the many who are eager to purchase it.

Lord willing, when Eve is finally released, I will be watching for some reviews written by Christians and will add them to this post so that you will be aware of any serious problems that may be in this book.

Before finally publishing this post, I did a search to find further resources to share with all of you concerning the many dangerous problems with The Shack. When time allows, I hope that you will read the articles, as well as listen to the information in the videos and podcasts so that you can become aware of the theological problems, as well as the New Age teachings, that are woven throughout the book, and so that those of you who earnestly contend for the faith can be better equipped to share Biblical truth in love with those who have been ensnared by the God that is presented in The Shack.

When we see so many people finding a false comfort and a false understanding of who God is through reading  books like The Shack, it should make us as Christians realize the deep need for us to reach out to those around us who are deeply hurting and share true hope and healing that can only be found through receiving Jesus Christ and the salvation that He provided for us when He died in our place on the cross, and through the truth that can be found in God’s Word, the Bible.

Thank you for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to read some of my posts and poems.

God Bless You

Lord willing, at least once a month on Wednesdays I will be writing and sharing one of these posts with you so that I can make you all aware of some important information that I come across on the Internet that you may not have heard about.

Since I knew that I would soon be starting a new part-time job (and I did in June)  and that my free time would then be somewhat limited, I was trying to think of something that I could write on a regular basis that would be short and to the point (at least that was my intention). And since I am a detective-at-heart and desire to make you all aware of the importance of testing things that pastors and teachers say (and do) in light of Scripture (Acts 17:11), the idea to do these posts — as well as the name — came to my mind in November of 2014, based on Acts 20:26-31:

“For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.”

So with all of that in mind, here is what I’d like to share with you in today’s WARNING YOU WITH TEARS WEDNESDAY:

Many of us as Christians were pretty certain which pastors would continue to stand for God’s definition of marriage, and sadly wondered who would be among the first to give in to compromise after same sex marriage became legal in all of the United States on June 26th 2015.  On August 7, 2015 Christian News shared THIS REPORT concerning where T D Jakes stands. He said something very similar during the Elephant Room 2 Conference    when he was briefly questioned concerning where he stands on the Trinity since he is known to be a Modalist. (See video and articles below for details).

Are you aware of what “soaking” prayer is? If you think that it’s Biblical, and you are participating in this practice, or if you are among those who are not aware of what it is, when time allows, please read THESE ARTICLES  on “soaking prayer” posted on Lighthouse Trails so that you will not be deceived and led astray by this unbiblical, occultic practice. (Also see related videos below).

Many of us are aware of the ‘unity’ that we see taking place as many  ministries are beginning to merge together. Here’s some  information by Cecil Andrews of TAKE HEED MINISTRIES in a PDF file, entitled, ‘ELLEL’ & ‘NEW HEART MINISTRIES: IHOP: JOHN CROWDER: THEIR INTERCONNECTEDNESSEllel-Ministries 

In last week’s Warning You With Tears Wednesday’s post I shared an interesting article with you written by Pastor Anton Bosch concerning new facts on how the Vatican fulfills prophecy. This week I’d like to share his very Scriptural articles concerning the return of Jesus Christ with you that may help those of you who may be confused on this issue since there are so many who teach different views on when He will return. Please pray for discernment before you read, and be sure to get your Bible and test everything in light of Scripture. Remember this is an issue that we can debate, but we must not allow it to divide us:

If you are among the many who have been devastated and disgusted after  seeing all the horrendous videos concerning Planned Parenthood and the coldness and hardness of heart of those who were video taped as they were in the process of selling the body parts of precious babies who were aborted, here’s an article for you by Avery Foley from Answers in Genesis:

UNDERSTANDING THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD VIDEOS FROM A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW

Here’s some good news to end this post with in  order to give glory to God, and to encourage all of you: After some women viewed an ultrasound of their babies at various stages of growth within their wombs, they chose life for their babies!

 

Please pray for the many women who are pregnant and fearful, or feel threatened and think that there is no other alternative than to end the life of their unborn child. Pray also for the women who have hardened their hearts and think only of themselves, their freedom, and their careers, and care nothing at all about their baby’s opportunity to live.

Pray for discernment for Christians so they will not be deceived by the many spiritually deceptive practices that are entering many churches today. And may all of us who proclaim the name of Jesus Christ never compromise with the truth that God has put forth in His Word in spite of an ever changing world that seeks to call what is evil good, and what is good evil.

Thank you for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to read some of my posts and poems.

God Bless You

Capture Picture of Bible - Posted by 'Life Everlasting'

Welcome to another post in a new category of posts entitled, TEACHING THURSDAY.’ Lord willing, at least once a month on Thursdays, I will be posting either a video, an article, or some form of teaching  in which a *Biblically sound teacher *(Biblically sound because what they say and teach lines up with the truth of God’s Word,  Acts 17:11) will either expose an unbiblical movement, teaching, or a practice that is leading many Christians astray, or present some type of Biblical teaching to help you grow in a deeper understanding of God’s Word on different topics. Some of these teachings may be essentials of the Christian faith, and others may be things that we can debate but not divide over.

It is my hope and prayer that by presenting these teachings to you, many more Christians will not only come to realize the importance of testing the words of men (and women) against the truth of God Word so they will not be deceived, but also it is my hope and prayer that many Christians will come to know the joy of learning God’s Word.

Now on with today’s TEACHING THURSDAY:

Let me begin this post by saying that I stand with Israel and their right to defend their country and their people from any one or any country that may threaten their safety. (See the last video that I posted below). When one realizes the size of their country in comparison to the surrounding countries and all the countries of the world, and consider all of the attacks that Israel has endured over the many, many years that they have existed, it all serves as an amazing testimony to the fact that they have been preserved by the mighty hand of God alone! Before I get too carried away and drift even further from sharing the reason for this post, let me get right to the point. But first, a very brief explanation:

This post was not written with any intention to bash or to slander the Jewish people in any way. This post was written with the intention of making Christians aware of some of the dangerous teachings of the Hebrew Roots Movement (HRM), and they will be compared to the truth of God’s Word so that the truth can be revealed to all of you with the hope that no one will be deceived by the teachings in this movement. As you will soon see, the teachings of the HRM cause many Christians to slowly become ensnared once again by the law, and they no longer rest in the fact that it’s by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. I have seen that happen to a few of my friends on Facebook by observing the things that they have been posting, and realized the urgent need to be one among many other Christians who are warning about this movement. I  trust that God will use the following teaching — and especially the truth of God’s Word — to open the eyes of many Christians who have been led astray and deceived by these teachings.

You will also learn through the following presentation in the videos below that the teachings of the (HRM) lead Christians to begin to focus more on the Old Testament than on the New Testament. That is only the beginning of where these teachings can mislead a Christian, as you will soon see. 

Some, but not all of the people in this movement deny the Triune nature of God, and some even slowly come to have an unbiblical view of who Jesus Christ is! One of the teachings of the HRM also teach that the Jewish people can be saved through observing the law.

When time allows, please listen to this very important and informative teaching which will help you understand the Hebrew Roots Movement so that you will not be led astray by these teachings, and so that you can lovingly point your friends who have been caught up in this movement to the truth that is so clearly revealed in God’s word.

 

 

 

 

RELATED SCRIPTURES:

But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.  This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.  God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of His blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—  He did it to demonstrate His righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. Because of what law? The law that requires works? No, because of the law that requires faith. For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law. Or is God the God of Jews only? Is He not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith. Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.” (Romans 3:21-31)

I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!” (Galatians 2:21)

“You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh? Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain? So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard? So also Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham.  Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.” So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith. For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”  Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.” Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit. (Galatians 3:1-14)

Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.” (Romans 3:19,20)

But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.  This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,  and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of His blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance He had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— He did it to demonstrate His righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.” Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. Because of what law? The law that requires works? No, because of the law that requires faith. For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law. Or is God the God of Jews only? Is He not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith. Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.” (Romans 3:22-31)

It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith. For if those who depend on the law are heirs, faith means nothing and the promise is worthless,  because the law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression.” (Romans 4:13-15)

FURTHER INFORMATION FOR YOU:

GOT QUESTIONS? – WHAT IS THE HEBREW ROOTS MOVEMENT

 

Capture Eyes with tears 1Welcome to another post in the series of posts that I have entitled, Warning You With Tears Wednesdays. Lord willing, at least once a month on Wednesdays I will be writing and sharing one of these posts with you so that I can make you all aware of some important information that I come across on the Internet that you may not have heard about.

Since I knew that I would soon be starting a new job (and I did last month)  and that my free time would then be somewhat limited, I was trying to think of something that I could write on a regular basis that would be short and to the point (at least that was my intention). And since I am a detective-at-heart and desire to make you all aware of the importance of testing things that pastors and teachers say (and do) in light of Scripture (Acts 17:11), the idea to do these posts — as well as the name — came to my mind in November of 2014, based on Acts 20:26-31:

“For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.”

So with all of that in mind, here is what I’d like to share with you in today’s WARNING YOU WITH TEARS WEDNESDAY:

1) As many of us know, Pope Francis has been saying some very disturbing and strange things so far during his reign as Pope, such as THIS  and THIS. Those reports, which are true, are causing some people to believe that THIS story, which I saw posted on Facebook, is true, as well. However, it is not. I thought it was a story that sounded just a little to far fetched to be true, and decided to check it out for myself. You can read the articles that I found about it HERE and HERE.


2)
This article by Anton Bosch is quite interesting, though. He points out some new facts that many of you may not be aware of. As always, we must be sure to test everything we hear and read against the truth of God’s Word:

VATICAN FULFILLS PROPHECY

3) When it comes to God’s Word, the Bible, we simply cannot compromise! When time allows, please read this article:

OPENING THE DOOR FOR COMPROMISE – KEN HAM – ANSWERS IN GENESIS

4) For those of us who are aware of who Todd Bentley is because we watched in horror as we saw what he did during his times of ministry back in 2008 as he prayed for people, it grieves us to see that he is still leading many people astray! Todd Bentley serves as a clear example to us of why it is so very important for us to test the words and the actions of everyone who claims to speak for God against the truth of God’s Word! (Acts 17:11) Please read the following article to be aware of the latest news on him, and please pray for discernment for all those who choose to go and see him. He claims to be a Christian, and only God knows if that is true or not, but the fruit that he exhibits through his life and ministry says otherwise.  May God bring conviction on Todd Bentley for how he is misleading so many  people by presenting them with doctrines of demons as well as another Jesus and another gospel!

LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH – ‘TWO BENTLEY ITEMS: TODD BENTLEY’S SCHOOL OF REVIVAL’ AND ‘BENTLEY TO SPEAK IN SACRAMENTO CA AUGUST 5TH – 8TH’

5) Beware of any pastor or teacher who begins to focus more on the Presence of God instead of on the Word of God! This would include the very popular but unbiblicalJesus Calling‘ Devotional. Please read the following article when time allows:

LIGHTOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH – WARREN B SMITH – WOULD JESUS MAGNIFY HIS PRESENCE ABOVE THE WORD OF GOD? 

6) When time allows, here are some very lengthy, but excellent articles for you to read that have very detailed and in depth information on the same subject written by Sarah Leslie of Herescope that you truly need to be aware of since so many pastors and teachers are beginning to focus more and more on the manifest presence of God:

PART 1 – THE PASSION OF THE PRESENCE & THE PURPOSE OF THE PASSION 1/25/2014

PART 2 – “PRESENCE” ESCHATOLOGY – THE PASSION OF THE PRESENCE AND THE PURPOSE OF THE PASSION

PART 3 – BRIDAL ESCHATOLOGY – THE PASSION OF THE PRESENCE AND THE PURPOSE OF THE PASSION

PART 4 – THE PERFECTLY OBEDIENT BRIDE – PASSION OF THE PRESENCE AND THE PURPOSE OF THE PASSION

PART 5 – THE 2ND COMING OF THE “PRESENCE” – PASSION OF THE PRESENCE AND THE PURPOSE OF THE PASSION

PART 6 – THE BATTLED BRIDE – PASSION OF THE PRESENCE AND THE PURPOSE OF THE PASSION

 

7) If you are a born-again, Bible believing Christian like I am,  don’t you find it very heartbreaking and even somewhat frustrating and discouraging when you see your Christian friends continue to post and ‘like’ things on Facebook after you having taken a lot of time to lovingly warn them about those same things such as the INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF PRAYER? And it makes things even worse when those in leadership begin to endorse and promote them! Here’s an example for you, which again shows that we as Christians must be followers of Jesus Christ alone, and not followers of any Christian leader and their ministry:

BEREAN RESEARCH – MARSHA WEST – REFORMED PASTOR, FRANCIS CHAN, TO SPEAK AT IHOP CULT – AGAIN!

8) I’ll end this post with an article by Harry Ironside that was posted by LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS that will not only bring glory to God, but also will bring hope and encouragement to those of you who may have come across this post and feel as if you have messed your life up so completely that you think God could never forgive you for all the things that you have done. That simply is not true! Please read this:

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD …THAT WHOSOEVER!” BY HARRY IRONSIDE

RELATED SCRIPTURES

 

“In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.” (2 Timothy 4:1-4)

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.” (1 Timothy 4:1)

“But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.  For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.” (2 Corinthians 11:3,4)

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever.  Amen.  I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel– which is really no gospel at all.  Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.  But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned.  As we have already said, so now I say again:  If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!” (Galatians 1:3-9)

“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerades as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.”       (2 Corinthians 11:14,15)

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16,17)
