SERIES INTRODUCTION

Let’s face it. We are truly living in trying times! Many are without jobs, some have had to close their businesses due to the shutdown and lack of income, our country is in chaos because so many people are in rebellion against God and those in authority, and things worldwide seem like they are only getting worse! However, for those of us who have placed our trust in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins, we have a  hope that cannot be extinguished –no matter what! We look around and realize all of the chaos and lawlessness are clear signs of the soon return of Jesus Christ! Whether we have just a few more hours remaining or many more years to wait, we have so much to look forward to after life, as we now know it, finally comes to an end!

Even though our hope may be in Jesus Christ, sometimes we still experience discouragement and sorrow when we see what’s happening all around us, which is why it’s so important for us as born-again, Bible believing Christians to stay in God’s Word for the encouragement and spiritual strength that we need to get us through each day and so we can be a light in this dark world to those who do not know the true love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Just imagine the hopelessness, fear, and discouragement they must be feeling right now! During these very trying times, let’s come before the Lord and surrender any sorrow, fear, discouragement, and frustration to Him and ask Him to fill us with His strength, wisdom, joy, and grace so that we can share His love and the truth of the Biblical gospel with those who need to hear it and to receive it!

Here is your encouraging Scripture for today, Sunday, July 26th 2020:

UPDATE:

I already started on the next post in the series in which we are going through the Catechism Of The Catholic Church and comparing many of the teachings to Scripture in a Catholic New Testament not only to show precious Catholics the full truth regarding all that Jesus Christ truly accomplished for us by His sinless life, His willingness to die on the cross in our place for our sins, His burial, and His glorious bodily resurrection from the dead three days later, but also to show Bible believing Christians what the Catholic church actually teaches regarding salvation so that they will realize the need to reach out to their Catholic friends and family members who need to hear the truly good news of the Biblical gospel and how, according to the truth that can be found in God’s Word, they can have the assurance of salvation. (1 John 5:9-13) However, this past week I have been having a lot of trouble getting a solid connection to my Internet service which has made it very difficult to try and continue writing it. Thankfully, yesterday I was able to work on it for a couple of hours though. Lord willing, I will continue to work on it when time allows, and on days when I am receiving a strong connection to my Internet service.

If you are looking for some very meaningful sermons to listen to during this Easter season, I highly recommend the following sermon series preached by Pastor Tyler Leigeb of Billings Bible Church…they will help you grasp all that Jesus Christ truly accomplished for us not only through the sinless life that He lived that we could never live, but also through His “once for all” sacrifice on the cross in our place; Jesus Christ willingly took upon Himself the full wrath of God that we deserve for our sins and paid the debt for our sins –in full! His glorious resurrection from the dead in bodily form showed that God accepted His death as satisfying His just demands for sin. Every sin can be forgiven — no matter how horrific it may be — if you will choose to place your full trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ and not trust in any effort of your own. We then obey to show our love and appreciation for all that He did for us not to try and earn God’s forgiveness, because if all we had to do was just try to be good enough, there would be no reason for Jesus to die in our place on the cross.

Trusting only in all that Jesus Christ accomplished for us is God’s only way that He has provided for us to receive the forgiveness of sins. If we choose to do so He will forgive us and give us His strength to deal with all the sorrow and trials that we face in life, He will give us His joy and peace that nothing in this world can ever give us, and we can have the assurance of being in heaven with Him one day.

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:

 WORD OF FAITH FALSE TEACHER – MEYER’S SHOCKING DOCTRINE AND HERESY – BY FRAN SANKEY

 

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.”

TO WARN IS TO LOVE- BILL MUEHLENBERG

RELATED VIDEOS

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:

RELATED SCRIPTURES:

“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)
