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:

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!

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:

“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) (NIV 1973, 1978, 1984)

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” (Ephesians 5:11) (NIV 1973, 1978, 1984)

“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” (2 Corinthians 2:11) (KJV)

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

“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)
