Capture Eyes with tears 1

UPDATED 12/17/15 7:48 P.M. & 12/19/15 10:20 A.M.

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 (which I  started 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) It’s so easy to get caught up in the joy of the Christmas season especially while listening to so many beautiful Christmas songs. However, we must never let our guard down and must always test things things in light of Scripture (Acts 17:11) so that we will never be deceived *and so that we will never cause someone else to be led into deception! *(Keep that thought in mind, because I will be talking about that in an upcoming post that — Lord willing — I will be writing and sharing with you in January or February of 2016).  With all of that in mind, Tim Challies shares with us why “you’ve got to be careful what you share online” IN THIS POSTI highly encourage you to read it when time allows. If you are short on time, let me just warn you: Do not be misled by the #ShareTheGift posts that you may see on Facebook and Twitter! I discovered what that was last year and will briefly talk about that in my upcoming post that I mentioned to you previously.

2) Have you ever heard of quantum jumping before? I saw these adds that popped up as I was trying to read my new emails the other day:


Capture Quantum Jumping - First of two adds on Quantum Jumping shown on Yahoo while I was reading emails


I knew that it was connected to the New Age Movement, but at first I simply thought that it involved a person just continuously and vigorously jumping until they reached an altered state of consciousness like people do in dynamic meditation. A practice which has actually caused some people to literally lose their minds! (See video below – Gods of the New Age).

However, after this second add popped up that talked about ‘jumping into your subconscious…’Capture Quantum Jumping - Another add on Yahoo promoting this occult practice

…I decided to do some research on it since I am a detective-at-heart, and discovered that it is as equally dangerous as dynamic meditation but much more alluring to those who are unaware of the dangers involved in connecting with the world of the supernatural! Although the people in this video that I found may truly believe they have jumped into another dimension and connected with their “twin self,” and that they are receiving “information from another dimension,” what they don’t realize is that they are actually receiving information from demonic spirits. Listen carefully to what all of these people say and see what you think:


So then I decided to search for information to share with you from a  trusted source in order to give you a Biblical perspective on this, and I found another very good related article written by Gaylene Goodroad which was posted on one of my top favorite blogs —Herescope. If any of you read my last FALSE TEACHER FRIDAY post concerning Chuck Missler, Gaylene shares some more important information about him in the following article. Here is a quick capture from a portion of that article:




3) Warren B Smith as well as Pastor Bob DeWaay have warned Christians about Quantum Physics and how certain aspects of these teachings are merging with Christianity in an attempt to lead many Christians astray. When time allows, please watch these video Playlists:



4) Glenn Chatfield of THE WATCHMAN’S BAGPIPES shares many good article with us on his blog. And, sadly, since there are many Christians who unfortunately look to Joyce Meyer for Biblical truth,  I’d like to draw your attention especially to the article that he linked to on his  latest RANDOM ABERRATIONS APOSTASIES AND HERESIES post:



5) Hillsong Church trashes this Christmas song and makes it an unholy night with their rendition of Silent Night in the video below. Please pray for those in leadership, and please also pray for discernment for those who attend Hillsong Church. Here’s a quick capture from the video in case it is ever taken down:Capture Hillsong Church - Silent Night - YouTube

UPDATE 12/17/15: After this video brought outrage from the many Christians who saw it mainly over the past few days, Hillsong Church just decided to make this video “private” since I originally posted it here on Wednesday 12/16/15

However, I just found another copy. This video was uploaded today —  12/17/15 — by Geoffrey Grider of  NOW THE END BEGINS. I was stunned to see that it already has almost 30,000 views!! For those of you who have yet to see it, brace yourselves!! (UPDATE: Today, 12/19/15, it now has over 80,000 views!!

6) Just in case that version of Silent Night is still stuck in your head, here’s a beautiful version of it that I hope will then take its place. You’re welcome. 🙂


7) If you still are not convinced that those in leadership at Hillsong Church are dishonoring God by what they are presenting not only through their programs but especially through their teachings, (consider reading THIS POST for more information), then please consider watching this video when time allows:

8) I’ll end this post with an article by Bill Muehlenberg to help you see that even though those of us who name names and speak out in order to warn other Christians about what is taking place in the name of Christianity today may be called divisive and haters, Bill shares many Scriptures in his article to show us that “We are to warn fellow believers and we are to warn even non-believers,” and that “It is the most loving thing we can do.”



These videos compare Hinduism to Christianity and shows how the New Age Movement is making its way into the church through Transcendental Meditation. This is being done by disguising these practices in somewhat Christian terminology and is now being called Contemplative Prayer, silent prayer, or breath prayers. These practices are almost always found in the Spiritual Formation teachings that are being presented at many churches these days.

Yoga classes are also being presented at many churches today and referred to as stretching exercises, but if you listen to the following video starting at around the 1:31 minute mark, you will hear the following:

“Yoga- the word means basically “to yoke; union.” The goal of the Hindu is to be yoked with Brahman. Brahman is the Hindu concept of God…” “Yoga, is in many ways the heart of Hinduism. There is no Hinduism without Yoga, and there is no Yoga without Hinduism.” 

FULL VERSION: This version is the full presentation with a lot of information, and the audio is lined up to match the video, unlike the shorter version. You will also see an example of dynamic meditation that I mentioned at Point 2 above and hear just how dangerous this practice really is:





“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)

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. 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. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: (Ephesians 6:10-17)

“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)

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)


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



Well it seems quite fitting that I decided now to begin to write about the shift we are seeing from Biblical Christianity to “another gospel” (Galatians 1:6-9) and “another Jesus,” (2 Corinthians 11:4) as we see Todd Bentley is back once again.   

For those of you who are not aware of who Todd Bentley is, you can watch the video ‘Playlists’ at the links below.   My prayer is that you will be a good Berean and ‘examine the Scriptures daily’ to see if what Todd Bentley says and does is true,  (Acts 17:11) and ask yourself: Is the focus on Christ? Does he preach the Word of God? Does he present the gospel?  Does he speak of repentance and the need for forgiveness? Does he make an attempt to expose the sin in the hearts of those who come to his ‘revivals?’ Does he exhibit the fruits of the spirit…love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control? (Galatians 5:22,23)  Do these manifestations reflect the Holy nature of our God, or do they resemble the things that take place in  ‘revivals’ and at other gatherings where people who claim they are bringing forth the anointing and move of God, but instead are imitating pagan practices of emptying one’s mind by meditation and receiving an ‘impartation’ known as ‘kundalini,’ that is said to ‘arouse the serpent power coiled at the base of the spine.’ 

True revival is a move of God; He opens our eyes to realize our sinfulness in the light of His holiness. Men and women weep in the presence of God and there is a true sorrow that brings a change of heart and mind, and people choose to turn from sin and surrender their lives to Him.  (2 Corinthians 7:10) (2 Corinthians 5:17) (Acts 3:19)

The so-called ‘revivals’ that are taking place today, have their focus on unbiblical manifestations such as being so-called ‘drunk in the spirit,’ when God’s Word clearly tells us to “be alert and sober-minded,’ (1 Thessalonians 5:6,7)  and that we are ‘ not to get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery, but instead we are to be filled with the Spirit’ and we are to ‘speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.’ (Ephesians 5:18-20)  That’s a far cry from what Todd Bentley and others present to us when they claim to be ‘drunk in the spirit.’

Those of us who have had God’s love and mercy revealed to us are grieved in our hearts when we see these things that are taking place today.  Our desire is to be a voice of warning to the church and to the unbelievers, who not only seem to be able to see these people as false much easier than even some Christians can, but sadly they are turning away from even considering Christianity, when they see these types of things and think this is an accurate representation of Christianity!

How it must grieve the very heart of God when He sees so many claiming to be prophets and followers of Christ, and yet giving such a blasphemous representation of the ‘gospel’ to some who are genuinely seeking God, but ending up with a counterfeit instead. 

If you are a true follower of Christ, and are caught up in these types of ‘revivals,’ I pray you will ask God for discernment, and that you will test all things in light of Scripture,  holding God’s Word as the standard to judge truth from error. 

Find joy and satisfaction in hearing Him speak to you through His Word and being in His presence, giving Him the praise and worship He is SO worthy of, and you will not want to look elsewhere for something to satisfy your spiritual hunger. 

If you are someone who has been hurt by movements such as this, I pray you will not place your focus on men who will fail every time to ever come close in comparison to the glory of God. We must ‘keep our eyes on Jesus,’ (Hebrews 12:2) and stay in His Word so we will not be led into deception.

Those who have the gift of discernment, have a precious gift that should be used lovingly but firmly, to warn others of the many false prophets and teachers that seem to be popping up at every turn today!  We need to pray and let our voices be heard…we need to be a watchman on our knees; alerting other Christians of the spiritual dangers of these prophets, teachers, and movements, and crying out to God in prayer for believers, those seeking him, and even for those who are the ones perverting the gospel, that they might see the truth and repent and preach the true gospel.

We may be filled with a righteous anger when we see such blasphemous behavior and hear the teachings of people such as Todd Bentley, John Crowder, Rick Joyner, Bob Jones, Patricia King, Rick Warren — and the list can go on and on and on — but we must remember that Jesus died for them too. We are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone, and must have compassion and concern for them, as well.

Remember that Jesus warns us of false prophets and false teachers and how ‘they would come in among us and not spare the flock’, and added:

“Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guardRemember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.” (Acts 20:28-31)

Please, more than ever before, study God’s Word, and test the words and actions of everyone who claims to be speaking ‘words from God.’  (Acts 17:11)  Please use your critical thinking skills, and do not fall for the line that ‘we are not to judge those who claim to be hearing from God.’  God’s Word tells us to:

“Test everything.  Hold on to the good.  Avoid every kind of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21,22) 

Jesus said:

“Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment.” (John 7:24)

And He clearly shows us we are to judge in this verse:

“What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church?  Are you not to judge those inside?  God will judge those outside.  “Expel the wicked man from among you.”  (1 Corinthians 5:12,13)

Cults use the ‘don’t judge or question our teachings’ tactic, so please use your God-given ability to question their words and actions in light of Scripture, and don’t allow yourselves to be deceived.

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

God Bless You

Excellent article, ‘PREPARED FOR THE SLAUGHTER: The Disarming Of The Church,’ here:


An excellent series of articles  from June 2008, examining Todd Bentley’s ‘revival’ by Pastor Gary Osborne, here:



“Then the LORD said to me,  “The false prophets are prophesying lies in my name.  I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them.  They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own minds.”  (Jeremiah 14:14)

“This is what the LORD Almighty says:  “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes.  They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.  I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied.  But if they had stood in My council, they would have proclaimed My Words to My people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.  Am I only a God nearby,”  declares the LORD,  “and not a God far away?  Can anyone hide in secret places so that I cannot see him?’  declares the LORD.  “Do not I fill heaven and earth?”  declares the LORD.  “I have heard what the prophets say who prophesy lies in My name.  They say,  “I had a dream!”  How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets, who prophesy the delusions of their own minds?  “Is not My Word like fire,”  declares the LORD, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?  Therefore,”  declares the LORD,  “I am against the prophets who steal from one another words supposedly from Me.  Yes,”  declares the LORD,  “I am against the prophets who wag their own tongues and yet declare,  ‘The LORD declares.’  Indeed I am against those who prophesy false dreams,”  declares the LORD.  “They tell them and lead My people astray with their reckless lies, yet I did not send or appoint them.  They do not benefit these people in the least,”  declares ther LORD.” (Jeremiah 23:16,18,21-26,29-32)

“The visions of your prophets were false and worthless; they did not expose your sin to ward off your captivity.”  (Lamentations 2:14)

“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 4:2-4)

“Watch out for false prophets.  They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” (Matthew 7:15)

“At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.  At that time if anyone says to you,  ‘Look, here is the Christ!’   or, ‘There he is!’  do not believe it.  For false Christ’s and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect–if that were possible.” (Matthew 24:11,23-26)

“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)

“The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood–idols that cannot see or hear or walk.  Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.”                    (Revelation 9:20,21)

“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing.  They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.  For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)

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

“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) 

“You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine.” (Titus 2:1)

“…contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints.” (Jude 3)

“But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.  They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Sovereign Lord who bought them–bringing swift destruction on themselves.  Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.  In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up.  Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.” (2 Peter 2:1-3)

“Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you for the prize.  Such a person goes into great detail about what he has seen, and his unspiritual mind puffs him up with idle notions.  He has lost connection with the Head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.”  (Colossians 2:18,19)

“A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign!  But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.  For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” (Matthew 12:39)

“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.” (Hebrews 1:1)

“But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.” (Ezekiel 33:6)


Will you stand for Biblical truth when not many seem to care?

Will you expose the lies as ‘new age’ teachings slip into churches, unaware?

Will you speak God’s Word to set them free,

From deception that holds them in captivity?

Visions and words from demons, or their own minds these ‘prophets’ tell,

They fail to give the gospel message, that  alone has the power to save men from hell,

Instead they call on God to send fire to fall upon men,

Never warning them of the eternal fire that awaits  those who are still in bondage

to sin, 

God’s fire is a purifying fire that cleanses our evil hearts, as His Spirit makes us bold,

Their fire fills some with terror, and causes a depth of emotional damage untold,

It’s time for the church to fall on our face,

To cry out for His forgiveness, His mercy and grace,

If we are His sheep, then it’s His voice we should hear,

For the wolves are in the sheep pen, and the slaughter is near,

When we fail to test men’s words against Scripture, and seek signs and miracles


Should we even have to wonder, why so many are misled?

We need to sound the alarm and let our voices be heard,

For these ‘prophets’ have rejected sound doctrine, and have perverted God’s Word,

People need to be warned, so God’s truth they can see,

Pray their eyes will be opened, and that His truth will set the captives free.
