Capture Test the Spirits picture
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 “ChristianYoga, 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 is 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, (I recently posted a very lengthy one concerning Moody Radio which I will continue to update until completed) 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.

When time allows, I truly hope and pray that you will take the time to listen to these messages or read these articles, as well as read the upcoming posts that — Lord willing — I will be writing 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)

Now for today’s very short, but very important, Mysticism Monday:

This post has to be very short because my condo is still rather messy, and  as I am writing this I am eating my cereal out of a container meant for left overs, and eating it with a fork. :/ That’s what happens when a Berean and detective-at-heart is filled with an urgency to warn other Christians by spending countless hours writing and updating posts out of a desire to reach other Christians in order to emphasize the importance of testing the teachings of Christian pastors, leaders, and writers against the truth of God’s Word so they will not be deceived! At least that’s my excuse reason.

In all seriousness now, I’d like to share one of Ray Yungen’sFor Many Shall Come In My Name’ programs that he does on Rapture Ready Radio with you. In this episode Ray Yungen is joined by Jackie Alnor of THE SCATTERED SHEEP REPORT. The World The Parliament of the World’s Religions, oneness, the pope, Contemplative Prayer, and Beth Moore are some of the topics discussed in the following thirty minute message. Just click on the link below.

Here now is today’s Mysticism Monday:

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.

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.

 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.

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

“Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.

They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.” (2 Timothy 4:2-4)

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:
