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 Christian Yoga, Centering Prayer, Contemplative Prayer, or Lectio Divina? Well, this series of posts in the new Category of posts that I have entitled, ‘MYSTICISM MONDAYS,‘ will attempt to not only peel back the layers of the many forms of spiritual deception that have been entering the church in order to reveal them to you as being lies of the enemy of our souls, but also the intention of these posts are to present you with the truth of God’s Word in order to 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 be sure that you 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 Playlist of the presentations that speakers John Lane, Gary Kah, Warren B Smith, Roger Oakland, gave at ‘A WAKE UP CALL FOR THE LAST DAYS CHURCH CONFERENCE’ which took place at the at the end of October 2015 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. When time allows, I hope you will consider watching these very sobering presentations concerning what is happening in our world today, and how we as Christians should respond. Considering subscribing to their YouTube Channel to show your support and to keep up with the new videos that they post.

Here are just a few of the many things that you will learn if you listen to these presentations:

1) How Pope Francis is involved in ushering in the New World Order

2) How a plan is now forming for income redistribution in order to solve the problems of the world

3) How there are many spiritually deceptive attempts being made today — such as Oprah Winfrey’s recent miniseries BELIEF — which are presenting connectivity and oneness to everyone in order to deceive many into accepting this One World Religion that is forming right before our eyes

4) How the goal of many of the spiritual practices that are being presented to Christians as ways to connect to God on a deeper lever, are meant to cause Christians to “awaken to the God within,” and cause them to believe that “you don’t need a Savior; you save yourself,” which will eliminate Jesus Christ and the need for a Savior! The goal of those who are involved with creating this One World Religion is for all to believe that God is in everyone and everything. Then, and only then will they be able to bring about the oneness that those in this New Age/New Spirituality movement are seeking to achieve!

5) How the extremely popular Jesus Calling Devotional is one of the many ways in which Christians are being deceived today

6) How because of  the fact that we live in a society where many people are following men, their methods, and their movements, rather than following Jesus and His Word, we’re being set up for an end times Bible apostasy.

In Gary Kah’s first presentation he mentioned Global Oneness Day which just took place on October 24th.  In part, Gary had this to say:

“…Global Oneness Day. This massive worldwide celebration intends to usher in a new age of world unity through the realization of oneness, which, by their definition means, the deity of humanity and the interdependence of the universe.”

“Christians are rapidly losing their discernment, being overwhelmed by the media’s barrage of support for this treaty (Climate Change Treaty) and their church leaders endorsement of the same.”

Here is just one of many posts that I found on Facebook about Global Oneness Day:

Here’s a rather disturbing picture that I just found on the Facebook page of Global Oneness Day in which the acronym PEACE is used to describe their idea of peace. As you can see in the very small print in the lower right hand corner of the picture below, this is actually an excerpt from Neale Donald Walsch’s book, The New Revelations: A Conversation With God

Here’s some information on Neale Donald Walsch written by Warren B Smith:



Will you be one of the few who will stand against error and stand for Biblical truth no matter what the cost? Though these presentations are filled with some disturbing information in order to alert and awaken the slumbering church concerning what is taking place in our world today so that we as Christians will not be deceived, these speakers all share encouragement from the Scriptures to give us hope and to motivate Christians to take a stand for Jesus Christ and for Biblical truth in these spiritually dark days.

In the final video, Pastor Jon Lane ends the conference with a very encouraging message to Christians concerning the glorious message of the cross and how the church needs to repent of how it has perverted the gospel in many instances today.

And now, here are the presentations from A WAKE UP CALL FOR THE LAST DAYS CHURCH CONFERENCE. I urge you to please watch this when time allows, and, as always, please be sure to test everything in light of Scripture. (Acts 17:11)




“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)

“But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.” (2 Peter 2:1)

“Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.” (2 Corinthians 4:1-5)

“I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16)

“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)

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men. after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” (Colossians 2:8)

“Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you.” (Jude 1-4a)

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile.” (Romans 1:16)

“Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord we try to persuade men. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience. We are not trying to commend ourselves to you again, but are giving you an opportunity to take pride in us, so that you can answer those who take pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart. If we are out of our mind, it is for the sake of God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come. All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” (2 Corinthians 5:11-20)

“Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of all men. 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)


As mentioned in one of my previous posts: One main post focusing on ‘Mysticism’ coming soon –Lord willing.

Capture Jesus Calling Devotional

As the rapidly growing popularity of the devotional book ‘JESUS CALLING‘ continues to increase, and the season of gift giving is soon to be upon us, I now find it necessary to warn all of you about this widely popular devotional book, JESUS CALLING.  Like the many who have already spoken out about this book, I also do not doubt the sincerity of Sarah Young in writing this book.  However, a person can be truly sincere, and still be sincerely wrong, and thus lead many others astray in the process of one’s sincere endeavors.  That’s why it’s so very important for us to always test things in light of Scripture as the Bereans did in Acts 17:11:

“Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”

Back when I first became a Christian in 1980, the devotional book ‘GOD CALLING‘ was very popular.  This book was written in the 1930’s by two women who referred to themselves as “Two Listeners” because they sat and listened, waiting for God to speak, and they would write down what they believed God was saying to them.  It’s popularity emerged again in the early 1980’s and many Christians began reading it.  My friend encouraged me to get it, but when I heard how this book came about, God gave me discernment to realize that what these women had been doing was the very occult practice of ‘automatic writing’ that I attempted to try (and failed at, thank God!) back when I was a young teen dabbling in things that captured my curiosity.  (More on that in another post I will write at some time in the future –Lord willing).  I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to settle for a counterfeit when they already have the real thing –God’s Word, the Bible. 

As you will see in the ‘quick capture‘ below, Sarah Young expressed in an interview with CBN that she was inspired to write this book, ‘JESUS CALLING‘ by ‘beginning her journey with this devotional book, ‘GOD CALLING.’ ‘

Capture Sarah Young CBN interview concerning 'God Calling'

Capture Sarah Young 'Jesus Calling'SOURCE

In the very first sentence of the ‘quick capture‘ above, even though Sarah gives some strong words of caution concerning “listening” to God, when you listen to the video I posted below you will realize that she did not test the spirits and the words of this ‘Jesus’ who spoke to her.

Also notice how Sarah Young capitalized the word ‘Presence’ in the last sentence of the ‘quick capture‘ above, thus going beyond Scripture itself by implying Jesus indeed is speaking to her, and in doing so, she has added to the very words of God when the Canon of Scripture is now closed, and she is going contrary to Scripture by going beyond what has been written.  (1 Corinthians 4:6)  Without discernment, books like this will only cause many to abandon Biblical truth and to seek after ‘experiences’ with God.

If we yearn to hear Jesus speak to us, why would we even desire to read any devotional book when we have the Bible –the very God-breathed Words of God Himself?!

“In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us through His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom also 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.” (Hebrews 1:1-3a)

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness…”  (2 Timothy 3:16)

“For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty.  He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to Him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is My Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased.”  We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with Him on the sacred mountain.  We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.  Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the own prophet’s interpretation of things.  For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” (2 Peter 1:16-21)

“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

Have so many people who claim to be Christians today lost the appreciation and amazement of the fact that we have the very Words of God recorded for us in the Bible  –the Book that many people willingly fought for and gave their lives for?  Are so many today willing to settle for a counterfeit because they do not test the spirits and desire to seek after something new?

I ask that you please pray for discernment and consider taking the time to listen to what Warren Smith has to say concerning ‘JESUS CALLING‘ in the video below, and test what he says in light of Scripture as we are to do when listening to anyone claiming to speak truth to us.  We as Christians need to pray for Sarah Young, as well as for all those who, for some reason, find the need to read a devotional instead of God’s Word, the Bible.

Also, as you are considering the gifts you will be giving to friends and family this Christmas season, consider giving the book, ‘ANOTHER JESUS CALLING‘ by Warren Smith, to those who have been captivated by reading this spiritually misleading book, ‘JESUS CALLING.’  Or at least warn them about it by sharing the following videos with them. 

Spiritual deception is growing rapidly these days, and those of us who are true followers of Christ need to be aware of  these things, and warn others so they will not be led into deception.

“And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.  For many shall come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” (Matthew 24:3-5)

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

God Bless You

“I hope you will put up with me in a little foolishness.  Yes, please put up with me!  I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy.  I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to Him.  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 Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.” (2 Corinthians 11:1-4)
