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, or has your pastor been preaching on it? 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 spiritual 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, (One coming very soon –Lord willing) but since my time is getting rather limited these days because of other important responsibilities that I now have, I will oftentimes simply be sharing a video or an article with you that is filled with important information for you.

When time allows, I truly hope and pray that you will take the time to listen to these messages and read the upcoming articles and posts on these important topics 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.

I hope and pray that all of you who are Bible believing followers of Jesus Christ are constantly testing what your pastors and teachers are presenting to you against the truth of God’s Word as we are shown in Scripture to do (Acts 17:11) no matter how long they have been in ministry, because many pastors and teachers are now embracing and presenting New Age mystical practices to their people through things such as yoga, as well as  though meditation practices which often times are found in Spiritual Formation classes and are referred to as Contemplative Prayer, silent prayer, Lectio Divina, Taize, etc.

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11)

 Mysticism in the church is one of the many ways that Satan is now using to bring about the oneness and unity that is being promoted in the world to bring about the One World Religion. Sadly, many pastors and teachers lack discernment and have now become tools in Satan’s hands to promote these mystical practices. We must keep in mind what God says in His Word:

“Be sober; be vigilant; because your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21,22)

“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” (2 Corinthians 2:11) 

Are you a follower of  a man (or woman) and their ministry? Or are you a follower of Jesus Christ? Will you be a Berean and examine the Scriptures daily to see if what they are saying is true? Will you walk in the light and in truth and leave, if necessary, if Yoga and other mystical practices  are being promoted at your church? Or are the relationships that you have developed over the years while you have attended your church more important to you than being obedient to God and the truth presented in His Word? True followers of Jesus Christ will follow Him –no matter what the cost.

“For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.” (2 Corinthians 2:9)

 I hope and pray that you will guard yourselves and your precious children and leave your church if yoga and mystical practices are being promoted and taught at your church before you and your loved ones are led into spiritual deception!

Lord willing, in future posts I will be going into greater depth concerning the pastors who are promoting Spiritual Formation (such as Rick Warren of Saddle Back Church and Bill Hybels of Willow Creek Church), and I will also be warning you about some of the other writers and speakers who are teaching these things.

As I mentioned to you in a few previous posts, I am in the process of writing a very detailed post concerning Mysticism. Today I spent at least eight more hours working on it and it is very close to being fully completed. Lord willing, I am hoping to have it completed before the end of this week. So for today’s Mysticism Monday, in order to continue to inform you and warn you of how New Age mysticism is entering many churches today, I would like to share a video with you that was put together by a dear sister-in-Christ known as Psalm86 on YouTube.

And now for today’s Mysticism Monday:

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

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:

In the Playlist that you will find below, Pastor Bob DeWaay of CRITICAL ISSUES COMMENTARY, addresses the New Age teachings of Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, and Ronda Byrne, and how many Christians are being deceived by these very teachings because they are now being repackaged and presented to Christians by being disguised in somewhat Christian terminology. When time allows please listen and learn about these teachings that are being blended with Christianity and presented through spiritual practices in Spiritual Formation classes which may now be in your very own churches! 

Watch out for some of these key words as being huge red flags to warn you that these teachings are slowly being presented to you. Some words may sound innocent enough, but beware of their hidden, true meaning that you will learn about in these Mysticism Monday posts, as well as some main posts that — Lord willing — I will be writing in the future:

Spiritual Formation, the silence, sacred space, be still, breath prayers, Contemplative Prayer, Lectio Divina, Taize, Centering Prayer, body prayer

Also watch out for books or teachings that may be recommended to you written by people such as: Ruth Haley Barton, Bill Hybels, Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Richard Foster, Richard Rohr, Dallas Willard, Mindy Caliguire, Sue Monk Kidd, Brian McLaren, Rob Bell, and Thomas Merton, just to name a few, at this point. (More to come at another time).

Beware also of pastors and teachers who attempt to distort Scripture in order to attempt to show you that Jesus Himself did these spiritual practices.

The most obvious thing that you will notice if these unbiblical, New Age practices are entering your church will be a sudden emphasis on having experiences with God, and simultaneously you will also sadly realize that there is much less of an emphasis on the preaching of God’s Word in its proper context.

These videos in the following Playlist have some basic, but very important information for you so that you know what to watch for. I will be presenting even more detailed and disturbing teachings from other pastors and teachers to you in the future –Lord willing.

In this Playlist of videos Pastor Bob DeWaay passionately warns Christians to “wake up” concerning how Biblical truth is being replaced in churches by these false, new age teachings:

 

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“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)

“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)

“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them,and I will be their God, and they will be My people.” Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” (2 Corinthians 6:12-18)

Summary of Bob DeWaay’s article that you will find at the link above:

“What do the Pope, the Dalai Lama and Donald Whitney have in common? They all promote freestyle spirituality where feeling close to God replaces drawing near to God on His terms. Religious experimentation replaces practices ordained by God and sincerity replaces revealed truth. We will begin with a narrative from the Old Testament and proceed to revealed truth in the New Testament to show that we must come to God in faith on His terms. We cannot trust our spiritual well-being to experimentation.” ~Bob DeWaay

UPDATE:

As I mentioned earlier: One main post focusing on ‘Mysticism’ coming soon –Lord willing. I’m not exactly sure when it will finally be finished though.

Capture Eyes with tears 1

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 (and I did start 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 Carl Teichrib of FORCING CHANGE shared an update on his Facebook page concerning the recent Parliament Of The World’s Religions which he attended on Thursday, October 15th, through Monday, October 19th. This is what he said:

Capture Facebook comment by Carl Teicrib of Forcing Chance concerning the first day of the Parliament of World Religions held in Salt Lake City Utah

#2 Here’s Carl Teichrib’s most recent post. Notice, once again, how the emphasis is on “oneness” which permeates the messages in the New Age/New Spirituality Movement. The same oneness that we as Christians are also hearing through the many so-called Christian leaders who are calling for “unity” with other religions that preach “another Jesus” and “another gospel.” (2 Corinthians 11:3,4) (Galatians 1:6-9)

#3 Lighthouse Trails and Midwest Christian Outreach shared some information concerning the Parliament of the World Religions, as well:

#4 In my previous post concerning Oprah’s miniseries, BELIEF, I posted a video of Marianne Williamson sharing what she believes.  Marianne W.  wrote the book A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course In Miracles, and strongly promotes the book A Course In Miracles that was written by atheist, Helen Shucman after she heard an inner  voice claiming to be Jesus telling her, “This is a course in miracles. Please take notes.” Here’s an article with a lot of information concerning this three-volume book: (Also see the Playlist below).

JESUS IS SAVIOR – A COURSE IN MIRACLES EXPOSED

 

#5 For those of you who read one of my previous FALSE TEACHER FRIDAYS – LEARNING THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING A BEREAN in which I focused on Singapore’s mega-church pastor, Kong Hee, you may recall that I also shared with you how not only was Kong Hee arrested in 2012, but also that Kong and five other members of his church were currently on trial facing a possible sentence of twenty years in prison, if convicted. Well, this morning on Facebook someone shared a report from Fox News stating that the verdict is in, and you can read about it HERE.

This verse came to mind when I heard the verdict:

“If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?  (1 Peter 4:14-17)

#6 Because of what many of us are witnessing taking place in our churches and in many other churches today, the article below is a must read for every Christian to determine if their church is “free from cult like tendencies.”

Here’s a sneak peek at a portion of the article:

APOLOGETICS INDEX – IS YOUR CHURCH FREE FROM CULT LIKE TENDENCIES


SOME CLOSING THOUGHTS:

I am just one Christian (among many) who sees the need to not only write posts in order to remind other Christians of the importance of testing the teachings of every pastor and teacher in light of Scripture, but also I see the need to write posts in order to urge Christians to follow Jesus Christ alone, and not follow any man (or woman) and their ministry.

There is such a need for Christians to constantly pray for discernment because of teachers like Beth Moore due to the fact that she is not only leading many Christians into mysticism, but also oftentimes she presents distorted teachings like this one which can cause a Christian to possibly reject the needed warnings given to them by a sister or brother-in-Christ if they are led to believe what she is implying in this video:

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)

“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.” (Ephesians 6:11-13)

“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)

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” (John 16:13)

“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.

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 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:

A dear friend told me about Oprah’s new mini-series entitled, BELIEF, which began airing on her OWN network yesterday, Sunday, October 18th, 2015 and continues through Saturday, October 24th. By simply watching the above video, this series appears to be breathtakingly beautiful, visually. However, if you are a Christian and decide to watch this, I urge you to first pray for discernment and test everything in light of Scripture, because in a video that I saw in an article about her miniseries, Oprah stated her reason for creating this miniseries by basically saying she wanted everyone to realize that we are all connected. And as you can see by the quick capture below from the post on Facebook concerning her BELIEF miniseries, it clearly says, “We. Are. Connected.”

Capture Oprah miniseries BELIEF - We Are Connected

(If you’d like to see all of the articles and videos that I came across when doing research on this miniseries, including the video in the above quick capture, click HERE).

I see this series as a very spiritually dangerous attempt to weaken Christians who are not rooted and grounded in God’s Word and unaware of the many warnings in God’s Word concerning spiritual deception in the last days, as well as being dangerous to those Christians who are strong in their faith, yet uninformed about the teachings of the New Age/New Spirituality movement and the danger of participating in the many mystical, unbiblical practices that are being promoted today.

Sadly, there will also be some who will choose to disregard the many warnings in God’s Word and fall for the deceptive cry for “unity” that can be heard from many prominent pastors and teachers today, such as Rick Warren and Bill Hybels. Therefore, the consequences for some Christians who watch this mini-series could be devastating to them spiritually!

That’s why I see the urgent need to continue to write posts about mysticism in order to warn all of you about the many pastors and teachers who are promoting Spiritual Formation as well as promoting  teachers and speakers who promote these unbiblical, mystical practices, such as Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Ruth Haley Barton, and many others, because for those of you who watch this BELIEF miniseries without the understanding of what these occultic practices are, (such as Contemplative Prayer, silent prayer, breath prayer, Lectio Divina, etc.) you may lose sight of what God’s Word has to say about not yoking together with unbelievers (2 Corin. 6:14,15) and instead be moved by your emotions; you may get caught up by the many personal stories and lose your compassion for the lost who do not know Jesus Christ as the only way to the Father as Jesus Christ Himself declared:

Capture I am the way and the truth and the life John 14 6

Yes, we should have respect for others and their religious beliefs, but if a person is truly a Christian there should be an urgency within them to share the good news of the gospel with them instead of uniting with them, because the eternal destiny of a person who does not know Jesus Christ is at stake!

Capture He who believes in the Son - John 3 36

Christian, if you do not read and study God’s Word, and if you do not become informed about these deceptive New Age/New Spirituality teachings that promote an unbiblical form of unity, you may end up being deceived and come to the point of embracing the spiritual “oneness” and “unity” that Oprah and those in the New Age/New Spirituality and other spiritual movements are seeking to establish in order to bring about the One World Religion.

As you can see from the quick capture below, Oprah is also having an  “ALL NEW MEDITATION EXPERIENCE” which starts on November 2nd, and is entitled, “BECOME WHAT YOU BELIEVE.” I can’t help but wonder if her present miniseries BELIEF is also meant to lead many unsuspecting and undiscerning Christians to the next level by luring them into taking part in her free seminar hoping that many will embrace the oneness and unity that she is promoting, just as many religious/spiritual leaders in the world are doing, and sadly, as even some Christian leaders are now doing.  

Capture Oprah and Deepak - Become What You Believe - All new meditation experience - November 2, 2015(SOURCE)

According to THIS ARTICLE, Oprah and Deepak had a similar “meditation experience” last year.

Christian sisters and brothers, please pray for discernment, and become aware of what is taking place in the name of unity today so that you will not be deceived by the many mystical practices that are coming into many churches today and being presented as ways in which you can connect with God on a deeper and more intimate level. I urge you to go to sites such as LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH where many writers such as Warren B Smith, Ray Yungen, Roger Oakland, and many other Christian writers expose these mystical practices for what they are; strategies of the devil attempting to deceive and destroy you!

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