Capture Photobucket Survey pic

Welcome to another SURVEY SATURDAY. Thank you so very much to those of you who have taken the time to participate in some of my previous surveys! However, even though I now know that some of you are interested in seeing me write posts ‘exposing false teachers,’ and you also desire to see ‘book reviews‘ here, I would truly appreciate it if you could please let me know who it is that you would like me to write about, and what books you would like me to review for you. So, instead of the usual poll that I post for you to answer the few questions that I post and to vote accordingly, I am going to try something different this month to see if I receive more feedback to assist me in what I will be writing about in the future –Lord willing. Could you please just take a few minutes of your time and send me an email with a short comment with your request? Or, if you’d like, you can send me a personal message by going to my Page above, entitled: ‘If You’d Like To Contact Me,’ and share your requests with me that way.

I am here not only to honor God and to share Biblical truth and to expose error through what I write, but also I am here with the desire to help those of you who are searching for answers. With that being said, I would truly appreciate it if those of you who read this blog from time to time would please provide me with a little more information so that I can serve you better through what I write. It’s quite frustrating to me now that I know what some of you are looking for, but don’t quite know the false teachers that you would like me to write about, or the books that you would like to see me do reviews on.  :/

As I mentioned in my previous SURVEY SATURDAY posts: I will be presenting some type of survey to you normally once a month, (Lord willing) on the last Saturday of each month, to give those of you who read this blog from time to time, an opportunity to submit your requests to me as to what you would like to see me write about here on this blog in the future. Would you like me to write more poems? Then when I post a poll, please vote accordingly, and I would truly appreciate it if you would leave me a short comment as to what topic you’d like me to write one about, and I will consider writing on that topic which I will always write from a Christian perspective.

Do you have some concerns about your pastor or a certain pastor or teacher that you have been listening to, or something that they are teaching or something they have taught in the past that has been troubling you, and you’re searching for some information and answers? Then please vote accordingly and please leave a comment or send me a personal message using the ‘contact form‘ below or leave a comment in which you can choose to remain anonymous and let me know who it is that you have concerns about, and why, and I will be happy to do some research on that pastor, teacher, or topic, and focus on that particular person or teaching in the new series of posts that, Lord willing, I will continue to write more posts entitled, ‘FALSE TEACHER FRIDAY- LEARNING THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING A BEREAN.’ I may share an in depth report on that certain pastor or teacher, or I may simply write briefly about the person or teaching and then include links to some good posts addressing that person or teaching that have been written by other Christians who are well respected and trusted. However, I continue to urge you to always test everything you read and listen to against God’s Word to see if it is true or not (Acts 17:11) –including everything that I write.

Please always keep in mind that no matter how many years a pastor or teacher has been preaching or teaching, or how well respected they may be, we must always continue to examine the Scriptures daily to see if what is being said (and done by those who claim to speak for God) is true,’ (Acts 17:11) because God’s Word is filled with warnings about deception and false teachers! (Matthew 24:4-11, Acts 20:26-31, 1 Timothy 4:1, 2 Timothy 4:1-4, 2 Peter 2:1-3, to name just a few).

Maybe you have some concerns after reading a certain book that left you feeling very troubled, and you’re searching for some information on the author to see if what they are teaching is Biblical or not. Share your concerns and the name of the author and book, and I will do some research and write a post addressing the author and book in question. I am considering the possibility of writing some book reviews later this year –if time allows. I am not an expert on any certain topic, by any means, but I am definitely a Berean and a detective-at-heart and will gladly do all that I can — with God’s help — to give you some helpful information to put those troublesome thoughts to rest, and to encourage you in the process.

I post these surveys because it is my desire to help those of you who are searching for Biblical truth concerning what may be troubling you, so your participation is very important to me in order to help you.

FYI: As I mentioned in a previous post, I will — Lord willing — be writing  posts in the near future addressing ‘mysticism in the church‘ and ‘spiritual formation,’ because, sadly, these teachings are leading many Christians astray these days. If you are interested in learning more, please be watching for these important posts.

I am now in the process of writing a post on the important topic of mysticism and how it is merging with Christianity and deceiving many Christians. In this post I will also be addressing how many Christians are being led astray by Spiritual Formation. Lord willing, I hope to have this post completed within the next few days. So if you’re interested, please check back here from time to time.

When time allows, I also encourage you to please visit LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH, HERESCOPE, and many other very good blogs that I posted links to in the side bar where you will find many very good articles on these subjects, as well.

Do you have a suggestion of your own? Then please send me an email. Your participation in this survey will be greatly appreciated!

Here’s my email address: marydalke@yahoo.com

I’ll be looking forward to receiving your requests! 🙂

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:

AS PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED, NEW POST EXPOSING MYSTICISM COMING SOON –LORD WILLING

Capture Test the spirits 1 John 4 1

Have 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:

In the video below, Sandy Simpson of DECEPTION IN THE CHURCH gives an in depth teaching on Panentheism and shares a lot of documented information concerning how this teaching is being promoted in many churches today by Christian leaders such as Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, and many others.

Here is Sandy Simpson’s YouTube video description:

“Now, I bet you read the title of this article and thought I had misspelled the word “pantheism”. Just so that those of you who write to me advising me of words I have misspelled in articles (and I do often) I want to tell you that I am using the term “panentheism” as coined by Karl C. F. Krause. You can read more about this word and concept in an excellent book called “A Time Of Departing” by Ray Yungen.

There is a new “God” being promoted in the Third Wave, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and Word of Faith movements whose teachers are regularly seen on TBN, Daystar, SkyAngel, CBN and other “Christian” TV networks. Some of those teachers even have, what would be considered, a fairly typical statement of faith or doctrinal statement they endorse. But by what they teach they end up promoting a false unbiblical view of God, especially through their actions and experiences. The whole phenomenon of “slain in the spirit” and all the antics that go with it are brainwashing an entire generation of Christians to put their faith in another Jesus, another Spirit, another Gospel. This new “Jesus” and “Holy Spirit” is clearly pantheistic or panentheistic in nature. Though some of these teachers would claim to be believing in the God who is One God in Three Persons, by what they teach they deny the very revealed character of God from Scripture.”

 

For those of you who are not aware of what Panentheism is, here’s the definition which I quick captured for you from the video below:

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)

“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)

“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, I am hoping to have the post that I am presently writing (which focuses on mysticism) completed by sometime this weekend. However, as I have been continuing to do research for this post, the new information that I find has caused me to change the title of this post (as well as change some of the content of this post) three times already! So I’m not quite sure exactly when it will be finished.

Realizing the need to share this information with you also caused me to set aside reading my Catechism of the Catholic Church book, which means that the post I will write that will compare the teachings in the CCC with the truth of God’s Word,  the Bible, will probably not be finished until some time in the early part of 2016 –Lord willing.

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

Capture Eyes with tears 1

Welcome 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 start 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:

#1 Carl Teichrib of FORCING CHANGE shared an update on his Facebook page concerning the recent Parliament Of The World’s Religions which he attended on Thursday, October 15th, through Monday, October 19th. This is what he said:

Capture Facebook comment by Carl Teicrib of Forcing Chance concerning the first day of the Parliament of World Religions held in Salt Lake City Utah

#2 Here’s Carl Teichrib’s most recent post. Notice, once again, how the emphasis is on “oneness” which permeates the messages in the New Age/New Spirituality Movement. The same oneness that we as Christians are also hearing through the many so-called Christian leaders who are calling for “unity” with other religions that preach “another Jesus” and “another gospel.” (2 Corinthians 11:3,4) (Galatians 1:6-9)

#3 Lighthouse Trails and Midwest Christian Outreach shared some information concerning the Parliament of the World Religions, as well:

#4 In my previous post concerning Oprah’s miniseries, BELIEF, I posted a video of Marianne Williamson sharing what she believes.  Marianne W.  wrote the book A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course In Miracles, and strongly promotes the book A Course In Miracles that was written by atheist, Helen Shucman after she heard an inner  voice claiming to be Jesus telling her, “This is a course in miracles. Please take notes.” Here’s an article with a lot of information concerning this three-volume book: (Also see the Playlist below).

JESUS IS SAVIOR – A COURSE IN MIRACLES EXPOSED

 

#5 For those of you who read one of my previous FALSE TEACHER FRIDAYS – LEARNING THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING A BEREAN in which I focused on Singapore’s mega-church pastor, Kong Hee, you may recall that I also shared with you how not only was Kong Hee arrested in 2012, but also that Kong and five other members of his church were currently on trial facing a possible sentence of twenty years in prison, if convicted. Well, this morning on Facebook someone shared a report from Fox News stating that the verdict is in, and you can read about it HERE.

This verse came to mind when I heard the verdict:

“If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?  (1 Peter 4:14-17)

#6 Because of what many of us are witnessing taking place in our churches and in many other churches today, the article below is a must read for every Christian to determine if their church is “free from cult like tendencies.”

Here’s a sneak peek at a portion of the article:

Capture Is your church free from cult like tendencies - Apologetics Index(PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO CONTINUE READING THIS IMPORTANT ARTICLE).

APOLOGETICS INDEX – IS YOUR CHURCH FREE FROM CULT LIKE TENDENCIES


SOME CLOSING THOUGHTS:

I am just one Christian (among many) who sees the need to not only write posts in order to remind other Christians of the importance of testing the teachings of every pastor and teacher in light of Scripture, but also I see the need to write posts in order to urge Christians to follow Jesus Christ alone, and not follow any man (or woman) and their ministry.

There is such a need for Christians to constantly pray for discernment because of teachers like Beth Moore due to the fact that she is not only leading many Christians into mysticism, but also oftentimes she presents distorted teachings like this one which can cause a Christian to possibly reject the needed warnings given to them by a sister or brother-in-Christ if they are led to believe what she is implying in this video:

 

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

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“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)

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:11-13)

“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)

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” (John 16:13)

“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 the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!” (Galatians 1:6-9)

“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them,and I will be their God, and they will be My people.” Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” (2 Corinthians 6:12-18)

Now for today’s Mysticism Monday:

A dear friend told me about Oprah’s new mini-series entitled, BELIEF, which began airing on her OWN network yesterday, Sunday, October 18th, 2015 and continues through Saturday, October 24th. By simply watching the above video, this series appears to be breathtakingly beautiful, visually. However, if you are a Christian and decide to watch this, I urge you to first pray for discernment and test everything in light of Scripture, because in a video that I saw in an article about her miniseries, Oprah stated her reason for creating this miniseries by basically saying she wanted everyone to realize that we are all connected. And as you can see by the quick capture below from the post on Facebook concerning her BELIEF miniseries, it clearly says, “We. Are. Connected.”

Capture Oprah miniseries BELIEF - We Are Connected

(If you’d like to see all of the articles and videos that I came across when doing research on this miniseries, including the video in the above quick capture, click HERE).

I see this series as a very spiritually dangerous attempt to weaken Christians who are not rooted and grounded in God’s Word and unaware of the many warnings in God’s Word concerning spiritual deception in the last days, as well as being dangerous to those Christians who are strong in their faith, yet uninformed about the teachings of the New Age/New Spirituality movement and the danger of participating in the many mystical, unbiblical practices that are being promoted today.

Sadly, there will also be some who will choose to disregard the many warnings in God’s Word and fall for the deceptive cry for “unity” that can be heard from many prominent pastors and teachers today, such as Rick Warren and Bill Hybels. Therefore, the consequences for some Christians who watch this mini-series could be devastating to them spiritually!

That’s why I see the urgent need to continue to write posts about mysticism in order to warn all of you about the many pastors and teachers who are promoting Spiritual Formation as well as promoting  teachers and speakers who promote these unbiblical, mystical practices, such as Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Ruth Haley Barton, and many others, because for those of you who watch this BELIEF miniseries without the understanding of what these occultic practices are, (such as Contemplative Prayer, silent prayer, breath prayer, Lectio Divina, etc.) you may lose sight of what God’s Word has to say about not yoking together with unbelievers (2 Corin. 6:14,15) and instead be moved by your emotions; you may get caught up by the many personal stories and lose your compassion for the lost who do not know Jesus Christ as the only way to the Father as Jesus Christ Himself declared:

Capture I am the way and the truth and the life John 14 6

Yes, we should have respect for others and their religious beliefs, but if a person is truly a Christian there should be an urgency within them to share the good news of the gospel with them instead of uniting with them, because the eternal destiny of a person who does not know Jesus Christ is at stake!

Capture He who believes in the Son - John 3 36

Christian, if you do not read and study God’s Word, and if you do not become informed about these deceptive New Age/New Spirituality teachings that promote an unbiblical form of unity, you may end up being deceived and come to the point of embracing the spiritual “oneness” and “unity” that Oprah and those in the New Age/New Spirituality and other spiritual movements are seeking to establish in order to bring about the One World Religion.

As you can see from the quick capture below, Oprah is also having an  “ALL NEW MEDITATION EXPERIENCE” which starts on November 2nd, and is entitled, “BECOME WHAT YOU BELIEVE.” I can’t help but wonder if her present miniseries BELIEF is also meant to lead many unsuspecting and undiscerning Christians to the next level by luring them into taking part in her free seminar hoping that many will embrace the oneness and unity that she is promoting, just as many religious/spiritual leaders in the world are doing, and sadly, as even some Christian leaders are now doing.  

Capture Oprah and Deepak - Become What You Believe - All new meditation experience - November 2, 2015(SOURCE)

According to THIS ARTICLE, Oprah and Deepak had a similar “meditation experience” last year.

Christian sisters and brothers, please pray for discernment, and become aware of what is taking place in the name of unity today so that you will not be deceived by the many mystical practices that are coming into many churches today and being presented as ways in which you can connect with God on a deeper and more intimate level. I urge you to go to sites such as LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH where many writers such as Warren B Smith, Ray Yungen, Roger Oakland, and many other Christian writers expose these mystical practices for what they are; strategies of the devil attempting to deceive and destroy you!

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

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) so that you will never be deceived.

Now for today’s Mysticism Monday:

Below you will find a video Playlist in which you will hear another one of my favorite speakers, Roger Oakland, of UNDERSTAND THE TIMES. In his presentation he will clearly show you how there is a One World Religion for peace forming and how there is a plan to win the world to the Roman Catholic Jesus –the Eucharistic Christ. If you are a former Catholic like I am, you will understand who/what this Eucharistic Christ is. If not, your eyes will soon be opened to discover how many Christians are being led astray by this Eucharistic Christ because not only are they failing to test things in light of Scripture, but also they are falling for the popular deceptive teachings that cause Christians to seek after having mystical experiences with God above seeking to know God through His Word.

In the following presentation, Roger Oakland shares many articles and documented evidence in order to show you how these mystical practices that are being promoted in many churches today (via the  Emerging/Emergent Church through Spiritual Formation, Lectio Divina, Contemplative Prayer, etc.), are being used to entice Evangelical Christians to travel down the road of mysticism which leads to Rome.  Oftentimes, when Christians involve themselves in these mystical practices that began with Catholic monks, known as the desert fathers, it causes them to embrace Roman Catholicism  itself, which is the goal of the New Evangelization program of Roman Catholicism.

Watching Roger Oakland’s videos concerning Roman Catholicism and Another Jesus made me see the connection with the Manifest Presence of God that is the focus of the messages of some popular pastors and teachers today, with what is called the Real Presence in Catholicism, and how these two could easily merge together one day. We must be aware of Church History and, above all, what God’s Word teaches, so that we will not be deceived, because, as you well know, history often repeats itself.

Do you know God’s Word well enough so that you will not be deceived by these false, mystical teachings that are being promoted in many Christian churches today claiming to lead you into having a deeper and more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ? Are you seeking to know God through His Word? Or will you sadly be among those who are being led astray today because you have fallen for the lie that God’s Word is not enough, and that you can now have experiences with God?

When time allows, I hope and pray that you will watch Roger Oakland’s presentation so that you will become aware of  yet another way in which mysticism is being used these days to cause Christians to seek after having experiences with God, and lead them away from Biblical truth that can be found in God’s Word alone.

The titles of the videos in this four part presentation are as follows:

1)Another Jesus

2)Another Spirit

3)Road To Rome

4)Road To Babylon

 

 

 

Are you aware of the teachings of Catholicism and how they compare to Scripture? It is extremely important for you to know, not only because  these mystical practices that are being promoted today are rooted in the teachings of Catholic mystics, but also because of the fact that Catholicism teaches “another Jesus” and “another gospel,” and many Christians are being led astray by their teachings. Do you know God’s Word well enough so that you could lovingly and patiently share the good news of the gospel with a precious Catholic if the opportunity arises?

Lord willing, I hope to have my post completed by the end of November in which I will compare many of the teachings that can be found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church against the truth of God’s Word. I hope that you will consider checking back here towards the end of next month and learn how to discern truth from error when it comes to Catholicism. Until then, please read and study God’s Word and continue to test all that you read and listen to against the truth of God’s Word so that you will not be among the many Christians who are being deceived today.

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

“As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you.” (Matthew 24:3,4)

“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)

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)

“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 the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!” (Galatians 1:6-9)

“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)

Have 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.

Now for today’s Mysticism Monday:

Below is a link to Jan Markell’s website. Although I don’t always agree with what her guests have to say (such as what Jonathan Cahn said concerning the Harbinger and the Shemitah), this past weekend her guest was Christian author and speaker, Warren B Smith, who was a former member of the New Age Movement. I have featured many of Warren’s videos on this blog because he earnestly contends for the faith, and, most importantly,  what I hear him say always lines up with Scripture.

Here’s a quick capture of the description concerning the following interview that Jan Markell had with Warren B Smith. When time allows, I urge you to listen to this program so that you can be aware of what is taking place these days to slowly lead Christians astray!

OLIVE TREE VIEWS – WARREN B SMITH – MANY SHALL COME IN MY NAME

Warren is one of very few Christians in ministry today who is continuously giving a wake up call to Christians of the importance of being aware of Satan’s devices, as well as stressing the extreme importance of studying and knowing God’s Word well so that we will not be deceived by things such as Spiritual Formation, Contemplative Prayer, Lectio Divina, etc., which basically are New Age/New Spirituality practices cloaked in Christian sounding words.

Please take time to check out some of the many very good websites that are available today that expose these popular mystical, unbiblical practices that are coming into many churches today and leading many Christians astray. Here are some of my favorites:

“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, thy 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 3:16-4:1-4) (NIV 1973, 1978, 1984)
