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:

Many of us as Christians were pretty certain which pastors would continue to stand for God’s definition of marriage, and sadly wondered who would be among the first to give in to compromise after same sex marriage became legal in all of the United States on June 26th 2015.  On August 7, 2015 Christian News shared THIS REPORT concerning where T D Jakes stands. He said something very similar during the Elephant Room 2 Conference    when he was briefly questioned concerning where he stands on the Trinity since he is known to be a Modalist. (See video and articles below for details).

Are you aware of what “soaking” prayer is? If you think that it’s Biblical, and you are participating in this practice, or if you are among those who are not aware of what it is, when time allows, please read THESE ARTICLES  on “soaking prayer” posted on Lighthouse Trails so that you will not be deceived and led astray by this unbiblical, occultic practice. (Also see related videos below).

Many of us are aware of the ‘unity’ that we see taking place as many  ministries are beginning to merge together. Here’s some  information by Cecil Andrews of TAKE HEED MINISTRIES in a PDF file, entitled, ‘ELLEL’ & ‘NEW HEART MINISTRIES: IHOP: JOHN CROWDER: THEIR INTERCONNECTEDNESSEllel-Ministries 

In last week’s Warning You With Tears Wednesday’s post I shared an interesting article with you written by Pastor Anton Bosch concerning new facts on how the Vatican fulfills prophecy. This week I’d like to share his very Scriptural articles concerning the return of Jesus Christ with you that may help those of you who may be confused on this issue since there are so many who teach different views on when He will return. Please pray for discernment before you read, and be sure to get your Bible and test everything in light of Scripture. Remember this is an issue that we can debate, but we must not allow it to divide us:

If you are among the many who have been devastated and disgusted after  seeing all the horrendous videos concerning Planned Parenthood and the coldness and hardness of heart of those who were video taped as they were in the process of selling the body parts of precious babies who were aborted, here’s an article for you by Avery Foley from Answers in Genesis:

UNDERSTANDING THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD VIDEOS FROM A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW

Here’s some good news to end this post with in  order to give glory to God, and to encourage all of you: After some women viewed an ultrasound of their babies at various stages of growth within their wombs, they chose life for their babies!

 

Please pray for the many women who are pregnant and fearful, or feel threatened and think that there is no other alternative than to end the life of their unborn child. Pray also for the women who have hardened their hearts and think only of themselves, their freedom, and their careers, and care nothing at all about their baby’s opportunity to live.

Pray for discernment for Christians so they will not be deceived by the many spiritually deceptive practices that are entering many churches today. And may all of us who proclaim the name of Jesus Christ never compromise with the truth that God has put forth in His Word in spite of an ever changing world that seeks to call what is evil good, and what is good evil.

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

God Bless You

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”         (Isaiah 5:20)

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

“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 4:2-4)

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.” (Proverbs 31:8)

SOAKING PRAYER – JOHN AND CAROL ARNOTT

Detailed information by Cecil Andrews of TAKE HEED MINISTRIES on the so-called ‘Toronto Blessing‘ (in which John and Carol Arnott were a part of) so that you can clearly see that the practice of soaking prayer — which John and Carol Arnott promote —  has its roots in something that is completely  unbiblical:

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 will 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:

Here’s some extremely important information by Sarah Leslie from the Herescope blog that you definitely need to be aware of whether your church presently has cell groups, or may possibly be forming them in the near future. When time allows, I urge you to read >THIS ARTICLE<  entitled, THE CELL CHURCH. Please be sure to listen to Part 1 and 2 of Sarah Leslie’s very well researched presentation as she lays out a frightening scenario of what could happen, and what may be the ultimate reason behind these cell groups being formed. (Hint: Unity = 1 world religion).

If you are among the many voices trying to warn other Christians of false teachers and false teachings and are labeled ‘divisive’ among other things, here’s a very good article by Warren B. Smith entitled >DISCERNMENT DETRACTORS: CALLING GOOD EVIL< posted at Lighthouse Trails. (Lord willing, I’ll be doing book reviews on some of his excellent books later on this year for those of you who have requested to see book reviews on this blog).

Here’s a good article to read by Ray Yungen that will reveal to you just how New Age Spirituality is merging with Christianity and deceiving many:  >CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER OR THE HOLY SPIRIT- POSTED AT LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS< Would you be able to tell the difference? It’s happening in many churches through Spiritual Formation classes and in other ways at many churches, as well. (Lord willing, I will be writing on this very important topic in the near future, and will also be doing a review on one of Ray Yungen’s books later on this year).

And speaking of Contemplative Prayer, here’s a very good article by Roger Oakland of UNDERSTAND THE TIMES, entitled, >SEEKER FRIENDLY TO CONTEMPLATIVE SPIRITUALITY< (Lord willing, I will also be doing a review on one of his many very good books that he writes in which he exposes the Emerging/Emergent Church, as well as the Eucharistic Christ, of Catholicism, later on this year).

Read the following article and you will begin to realize why many Christians are warning about the dangers of Contemplative Prayer: New Age mystic Thomas Keating, who is considered to be the father of centering/contemplative prayer, claims that >KUNDALINI ENERGY (SERPENT POWER) IS THE SAME AS CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER<  Is that a good enough reason for you to beware of Contemplative Prayer?

 As I watched the following very disturbing video, two Scriptures came to mind when I saw the hardness of this  woman’s heart that was made obvious because she could enjoy eating a meal while talking about such evil and  horrible things such as selling baby body parts after partial birth abortions!

“For the love of money is the root of all evil.” (1 Timothy 6:10)

“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless…” (2 Timothy 3:1-3a)

Please pray for God to open the eyes of this woman, and the eyes of many others involved in the abortion industry, that they will be able to clearly see the evil and brutality of abortion, and that God will draw them to Himself and grant them repentance, and save them by His grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone.

Here’s the very verbally graphic and disturbing video:

 

If you have watched Justin Peter’s excellent series exposing the Word of Faith Movement, then you will truly appreciate the following video presentation, as well! If, on the other hand, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Joyce Meyer, and others who teach that you can speak things into existence are the teachers you listen to, then I urge you to please pray for discernment and watch the following video, as well! And please start testing their teachings in light of Scripture. (Acts 17:11)

 

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

What could bring more glory to God than to post information with solid  evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ!

Here’s an article by Tim Chaffey that was posted on Answers in Genesis>RESURRECTION — NO DOUBT ABOUT IT<

In the following videos, as well as the article below, you will learn about Simon Greenleaf. He was a Royal Professor of Law at Harvard and was not a Christian. When challenged to examine the evidence concerning the resurrection of Jesus Christ by looking at Scripture, he simply shared the most basic facts, and yet he gave extremely compelling testimony by presenting  legal evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He was Jewish, but after careful examination of the Scriptures he also became a believer in Jesus Christ.

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.” (Proverbs31:8)

“You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about Me, and yet you refuse to come to Me to have life.” (John 5:39,40)

“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)

“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. 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 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 with heat. But in keeping with His promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.” (2 Peter 3:9-13)
