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:

1) For those of you who appreciated the in-depth information that Elliott Nesch presented in his three hour expanded video version of Church of Tares, here it is again. I’m mainly posting it for those of you who have not even seen the original shorter version. When time allows, please watch this video. It’s well worth your time, especially if you have many valid concerns about certain changes that you have been noticing taking place in your church:

 

 

2) The following very well written article by Pamela Couvrette of GUARDING THE DEPOSIT ties in perfectly with the above video:

CULT OF PERSONALITY: THE DARKNESS UNDER THE EVANGELICAL LIMELIGHT

 

3) Many of you who are Bereans at heart will definitely relate to what this person wrote in the following letter to LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH:

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: DISHEARTENED WITH LACK OF DISCERNMENT IN SO MANY CHRISTIAN LIVES

4) A big AMEN to the following article that I saw this morning, which Marsha West of BEREAN RESEARCH linked to:

‘THE SHACK’ WITH FILM PENDING CALLED ‘GREATEST DECEPTION’ TO CHURCH ‘IN THE LAST 200 YEARS’

5) Have you seen some of the videos that are warning about all the things that are supposed to happen in this month of September 2015, such as this one?

 

Well, HERE’S an article by Gaylene Goodroad of Herescope in which she shares information about David James’ book entitled, Biblical Guide To The Shemitah and the Blood Moons that will at least ‘demystify the popular prophecies about Jewish Sabbaths and blood moons.’

Remember, those of us who are true followers of Jesus Christ are not to fear the future, but to place our complete trust in the fact that God is in control. Just “make the most of every opportunity” that you get to share God’s love and forgiveness with whomever you have the opportunity to talk with.

6) Now that school is back in session again, here are a few warnings for all of you with children and grandchildren, etc., so that you can be aware of what is taking place in many schools today! I have shared some information with you on these topics in the past, but in case you missed it, these are things that you all truly need to be aware of:

 

HERE  you will find many links to articles on Lighthouse Trails Research concerning the dangerous New Age/Buddhist practice of  Mindfulness Meditation and how it’s making its way into many schools today.

You can also read another article on Mindfulness by Marcia Montenegro of Christian Answers For The New Age:

MINDFULNESS GOES TO KINDERGARTEN

Many schools are now presenting Common Core Curriculum to your children. If you are not aware of the controversy about Common Core and what is in this curriculum, please be sure to watch this video when time allows:

7) HERE is a very disturbing story from LifeSite News that may make you want to become a vegetarian, or, at the least, boycott certain companies. I suggest that you eat your breakfast, lunch, or dinner first before reading it. Above all, please pray!

8) After taking a much needed break in order to “maintain his sanity,” Glenn Chatfield, who is the author at THE WATCHMAN’S BAGPIPES posted his latest installment of  his review on Gail Riplinger’s book, New Age Bible Versions a couple of weeks ago. If you haven’t read it yet, you can read it HERE.

9) And just as I was getting ready to publish this post, I was notified that Glenn Chatfield posted his newest article in his series entitled, RANDOM ABERRATIONS APOSTASIES AND HERESIES. So I’m sharing it with you now even before I get the chance to read it. You can become informed about the many things that Glenn wants to make you aware of by clicking right HERE.

10) If you are a born-again Christian who has placed your trust in Jesus Christ alone for your salvation, and the day comes when your faith is tested, and your job may even be on the line, will you still continue to take a stand for Jesus Christ and Biblical truth like Kim Davis has? HERE’S HER STATEMENT THAT WAS RECENTLY RELEASED. Please take a few minutes to pray for her. When things like this happen, we have to remember that it’s a spiritual battle we’re fighting. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

“Finally be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take a 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. Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”

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 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:

FROM THE LIGHTHOUSE BLOG – LECTIO DIVINA – WHAT IT IS, WHAT IT IS NOT, AND SHOULD CHRISTIANS PRACTICE IT?

You’d be aghast at the > LIST OF SPEAKERS < at this ‘Parliament of the World Religions’ that Brian McLaren is speaking at, in light of one of my previous post that I just finished writing:

NEW AGE LEONARD SWEET – A CHAMELEON BLENDING IN AMONG CHRISTIANS AND CLEAR EVIDENCE FOR A LACK OF SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT AMONG CHRISTIANS,

The speakers include the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism who is the 14th Dalai Lama, a former Roman Catholic nun, Chief Arvol Runninghorse, as well as a New Thought minister, a rabbi, a Hindu author and environmental justice activist, the founder and editor of Sojourners magazine –Jim Wallis, and many others.  You can read more about this gathering at the following link:

FROM THE LIGHTHOUSE BLOG – LETTER TO THE EDITOR: BRIAN MCLAREN, JIM WALLIS, MARIANNE WILLIAMSON SPEAKING AT “PARLIAMENT OF THE WORLD RELIGIONS”

As stated in the link above, one of the speakers at this Global Interfaith Movement gathering is Marrianne Williamson. Many of you are probably not aware of who she is — unless, of course you have seen her on Oprah. If so, then you are also aware of her book A Return To Love, as well as the book that she strongly promoted on Oprah and continues to promote, called, ‘A Course in Miracles.’ This book was written by Helen Schucman, a Columbia University professor who wrote this book over a span of seven years after hearing a voice — claiming to be Jesus Christ — say to her,

“This is a Course in Miracles. Please take notes.”

Here are some of the things that this Jesus of the Course in Miracles teaches:

“God did not create the world.”

“We are all equally Christ.”

“Jesus is not the only Son of God.”

“My salvation comes from me.”

“There is no sin, no evil, and no devil, and “God is “in” everyone and everything.”

This course states:

“This is a course in mind training” and is dedicated to thought reversal.” (SOURCE – VIDEO SERIES  BELOW)

When time allows, please watch these videos to learn about the many messages from this Jesus whose words contradict God’s Word in many blasphemous ways, so that you are aware of the many spiritually deceptive teachings that are attempting to destroy Christianity:

Now maybe you understand a little better why so many Christians are warning about Sarah Young‘s book Jesus Calling, because she claims to have written her book in a very similar way. Below you will see a “quick capture” from a portion of an interview that Sarah Young did with CBN in which she said that her inspiration to write Jesus Calling was a ‘devotional’ with a similar title —God Calling. For your information, this book was written back in the 1930s by two anonymous women who simply called themselves “two listeners.” That “devotional” book was very popular in the 1980’s when I first became a Christian and it was sold at the book store of the Assembly of God Church that I once attended. Because I dabbled in the occult before I was a Christian, and attempted to contact the spirits through automatic writing, I knew very well that the book God Calling was not a Christian book! Here’s an excerpt from God Calling:

“But with my friend a very wonderful thing happened. From the first, beautiful messages were given to her FROM THE LORD HIMSELF, and every day from then these messages have never failed us. We felt all unworthy and overwhelmed by the wonder of it, and could hardly realize that we were being taught, trained and encouraged day by day BY HIM PERSONALLY,when millions of souls who are far worthier, had to be content with guidance from the Bible, sermons, their Churches, books and other sources.” (God Calling” Page 11-12 ) (Emphasis in red is mine).

Can you see the danger in reading devotionals like God Calling and Jesus Calling? They are considered to be new revelations by Jesus Christ Himself! This will lead many Christians to abandon the true Word of God — The Bible — for counterfeit words from a counterfeit Jesus!

Capture Sarah Young CBN interview concerning 'God Calling'Although Sarah Young accurately states that “the Bible is the only infallible record of God speaking,”and also gives some Biblical advise in her “cautions” below, she fails to recognize the fact that this practice mirrors the occult practice of automatic writing. She also misinterprets Psalm 46:10 as many who promote Contemplative Prayer often do. (See article under Further Reading).

Capture Sarah Young 'Jesus Calling'(SOURCE)

As you will discover in the following article and the videos below, Sarah Young also fails to test the spirits — as well as the messages from this Jesus — in light of Scripture. This information is also for those of you who have requested Book Reviews:

Here is some very detailed information by Warren B Smith concerning the messages that Sarah Young claims to have received from Jesus which were written  down and recorded in her extremely popular Jesus Calling devotionals which have sold millions.

Warren has been a Christian for many years, but he was once deeply involved in the New Age Movement. He now writes books and speaks at many Christian Conferences so that he can warn Christians about Contemplative Prayer, Spiritual Formation, Yoga, and many other ways in which the New Age Movement has made its way into the church. Because these New Age/New Spirituality practices are cloaked in somewhat Christian terminology they are deceiving many people. That is why it is so extremely important for us as Christians to “examine the Scriptures daily to see if what is being said (and done) is true.” (Acts 17:11)

Many Christians are also warning other Christians about another book that is deceiving many Christians and leading them to embrace a completely different view of God and salvation — The Shack . Read this article >  IN CASE YOU’RE STILL NOT SURE ABOUT THE SHACK AND ITS AUTHOR – (LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH BLOG)

I’m sorry that I have to remind you of what you may be trying to shove to the back of your mind, but…summer is quickly coming to an end, which also means that your children will soon be going back to school. To some of you that may be good news. To others, the thought of them going back to school makes you sad because you thoroughly enjoy spending all that extra time with your children. Whatever the case may be, I am sure that all of you deeply love and care about your children. So here are a few things that you truly need to be aware of concerning what is happening in many schools these days so you can warn your children, and know what to look for when school does start:

SHOCKING GENDER INDOCTRINATION IN CALIFORNIA – ARTICLE AND VIDEO STAND UP FOR THE TRUTH

The following article is filled with the most disturbing information that I came across recently, and it  truly reveals the hardness of heart and the blindness to sin that many have today. Reading things like the following article should truly makes a Christian realize the awfulness of sin and the immense patience and mercy of God:

“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)

NEWLY RELEASED VIDEO EXPOSING THE HUMAN TRAFFICKING OF BABY BODY PARTS

Please pray for God to open the eyes of those involved in the abortion industry which involves not only the brutal destruction of thousands of precious unborn babies, but also the manipulation and devastation of  many women who are emotionally and physically damaged by how they are treated and what they observe during the abortion process.

Please also pray for the women who have chosen or will choose to have abortions, that they will find forgiveness and healing through Jesus Christ. Pray that God will one day use these women for His glory to let their stories be told to stop other women from making the wrong choice, and that these women would choose life instead.

Pray for the women who are now contemplating having an abortion, that they will have a change of heart after coming across information that will show them the humanity of their child within their womb. Pray that they will connect with one of the many online support groups that help women through the whole course of their pregnancy, such as ONLINE FOR LIFE. (Click HERE to listen to the stories of the many women who chose life, and even the story of one young woman who regretfully did not).

Some organizations will even help arrange for a woman’s baby to be adopted into a loving family if they choose to give their baby up. Many women who choose to make this difficult choice do so out of a desire to do what’s best for their child.

This is a time when we should not judge these women, but instead we must reach out with the love of Jesus Christ and help them in the midst of their situation so that they will see hope in what may appear to them as a hopeless and very frightening situation.

One thing is for sure. So far, this year has been the darkest one spiritually as we continue to observe the hearts of mankind growing harder and more wicked, and so outright rebellious against a thrice Holy God! It makes many of us who are Christians stop and wonder:

“How long, O Lord, will You continue to be patient and wait until You gather those of us who have placed their trust in Your Son’s finished work on the cross to Yourself, and then begin to pour out Your wrath on an unrepentant world?” 

If you have not yet come to the point of realizing that you are a sinner in need of a Savior — as we all are —  I pray that your eyes would soon be opened to realize the truth. I pray that with godly sorrow in your heart because of all the wrong that you have done against a completely God, you would  turn from your sins to Him, and live in such a way that it will bring glory and honor to Him for all that He did to set you free from the bondage of sin.

SCRIPTURES TO REFLECT ON

“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)

“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)

“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)

“Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-16)

“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)

Capture Eyes with tears 1UPDATED 1/26/15 1:30 P.M. ADDED MATT CHANDLER PART 1 OF ‘MINGLING OF SOULS’

This is another post in a new series of posts that I will be doing (Lord willing) at least once a month on Wednesdays (actually this one was published a little after midnight, so it’s now actually Thursday, but on with my post) 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. I have been trying to think of something that I could write on a regular basis that would be short and to the point (at least I’ll try to be), and since I am a detective-at-heart and desire to make you all aware of the importance of testing things 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 that in mind, here are some of the things I’d like to make you all aware of on this Wednesday …um, Thursday:

Matt Chandler is the pastor of the Village Church in Texas. And as you can see from the quick capture below, “Harvest Bible Chapel is excited to host Pastor Matt Chandler and the Mingling of Souls Conference.”

Capture Harvest Bible Chapel - Matt Chandler - Mingling of Souls Conference

This conference will take place at Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows on Friday, January 30th, at 7:00 p.m., and is based on the book of the Bible, the Song of Solomon. I posted this as a warning not only for those of you who attend either Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows (my former church for almost fifteen years) or any of the other HBC locations in the Chicago area, but also as a warning to any one else in the area who may be considering attending this conference and may not be aware of who Matt Chandler is, in order to alert all of you to some of the concerns that many Christians have about him. If you’re interested in knowing what some of these valid concerns are, please consider reading one of my previous posts, HARVEST BIBLE CHAPEL ROLLING MEADOWS BEWARE OF MATT CHANDLER, in which I added a lot of information not only in the post, but also in the comment section.

**ADDED 1/26/15** Below is Session 1 of The Mingling of Souls Conference that I hesitated to post when I first wrote this last week, but I decided to post it today, 1/26/15, in order to give you a clearer understanding of what you will probably hear if you choose to attend this conference. Watching this video may also change your mind about going and save you some valuable time and money!

In spite of the fact that Matt Chandler says he is “not trying to be crass” by saying some of what you will hear him say within the first portion of this video, the words he chose to say are unbecoming and unnecessary to say by someone who calls himself a pastor.

He has a lot of good things to say in this video, but nothing beyond what a praying and discerning Christian should already know concerning healthy, God-honoring relationships. Sadly, he also uses God’s name and Jesus’ name irreverently four times in this video: at the 3:22 minute mark, the 3:32 minute mark, during the 5:50-6:09 minute mark, and at the 6:33 minute mark. A pastor’s greatest desire should be to live, to speak, and to teach in such a way that it will be pleasing to God, and not in such a way so as to be liked and accepted by men. God’s Word is clear to those who choose to be teachers, saying that “those who teach will be judged more strictly.” (James 3:1)

 

Parents, please read THIS article from Lighthouse Trails so you are aware of what some of your children are being taught in many public schools these days.

Speaking of school and what is being taught these days, have you heard about Common Core Curiculum? Please watch the following video so you are informed.

Read the following article and you will see  A (VERY SAD) SIGN OF THE TIME WE LIVE IN — KEN HAM — ANSWERS IN GENESIS

In case any of you have been wondering what Rob Bell has been up to lately, read THIS article by ‘STAND UP FOR THE TRUTH.’

We are living in trying times that can be viewed as exciting times, as well, because the signs of the soon return of Jesus are more evident with each passing day! Would you be ready if Jesus came today? Have you placed your trust in what Jesus did when He died in your place, taking the full wrath of God upon Himself that was intended for us because of our sins? Or are you trying to earn God’s forgiveness by trying your best and hoping the good you do will outweigh the bad things you have done? “Choose this day whom you will serve.” (Joshua 24:15) Tomorrow is promised to no one, so seek Him while there is still time!

“First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.” (2 Peter 3:3-13)

Thank you for stopping by. And thank you very much for taking the time to read my posts and poems.

God bless you.
