Enfolding Spirituality or devotion to Christ

So you want to be a mystic? Wouldn’t it simpler to just cease from your own works, struggling to go deep to “be in Christ”, and instead, open the door of your being and let Him BE IN YOU? If we are to do any striving, shouldn’t it be to enter into His Rest?

Witnessing Encouragement

But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.

I’ve been watching this Emergent movement phenomena for many years. There are 2 streams that I am thinking about today.

1. The Ooze: (Remember that? I was on the mailing list for years, just to see what was going on.) This supposedly Christian, “embracing doubt” skepticism movement takes struggling Christians, deconstructs them and transforms them into atheists.

2. The Hatchery (and similar movements): This “alternative to traditional Christianity” mystical, transcendent, contemplative spirituality movement takes struggling Christians and deconstructs and transforms them into full-fledged New Age Mystical, “spiritualism” practicing, global spirituality (“all is one”) enlightened, spiritually evolved, wisdom sages.

Integral Theory, Evolutionary Human Development model of Spiral Dynamics, Enneagram spirituality? Dove and serpent power?

These are current movements in “Christianity”, which…

Sorcery and Drugs in Opening the Last Days Spirit Portal

Spiritual Abuse Sanctuary


There are 10 parts to this fascinating series about the history of drugs, and the connection between drugs and sorcery down through the ages, especially as relating to scripture. I thought this was based on excellent research and scholarship. The portion of this series concerning scripture yet to be fulfilled is especially interesting since it will affect many of us still alive during this time frame.

Part 7 is actually bone chilling since the speaker’s research and understanding on the scriptures of the book of Revelation pertaining to the end times destruction coming upon planet earth seems to indicate a mass world-wide sacrificial blood-letting genocide. The scriptures do seem to point to a possible chaotic war against mankind triggered by drug related sorceries, and human sacrifice without remorse or conscience.

Most Christians are aware of the scriptures in Revelation 8, that tell of God bringing deadly plagues of judgment against…

Apostle Peter: From Humble Fisherman to the Big Time?

wronghere

There IS something wrong with this picture! The Apostle Peter knew better than this. He would never have taken on such lavish grandiosity to himself. He walked with the Lord Jesus Christ, and knew very well the teachings of the Lord to have a servant’s attitude toward others.

“But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.

But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:

 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Matthew 20:25-28

It should be obvious to anyone that so-called “Popes” bear no resemblance to either the Apostle Peter, or the Lord Jesus Christ. Apparently the Roman Catholic Church made this stuff up as they went along, because the Apostle Peter didn’t practice or teach Roman Catholic man made doctrine, and neither did the Lord Jesus Christ. Let’s get back to the basics of Truth and the bedrock of Christianity, the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, and not man made doctrines. “Traditions” do not trump the Holy Scriptures.

evilpopeprahronememe

See? This is NOT the example the Lord Jesus Christ, or the Apostle Peter left. I pray that all Catholics will pray and see the truth of the gospel, and get past what they were taught, to read the Bible for themselves and to be set free from the bondage of the Catholic church. 

Spiritual Abuse-What are the Signs You may be in an Abusive Church?

Spiritual Abuse Sanctuary


Who gave these churches the right to change the way God set up the church?  Back then, as a newbie, I tried to make excuses, such as, “Well, they’re doing some things right”…and, “these are different times we’re living in now, and after all it looks like they do love the LORD”.

When I first came out of the spiritually abusive church, I felt I must surely be the only one in the world that had ever experienced such abuse and betrayal in the “house of God”.  Some day soon, I hope to get around to posting about what happened there in the “full, unedited version”. But not just yet, …at this time I just feel led to tell a few incidents that happened during that time period, as a new believer, I realize I was being groomed to be conformed…not into the image of the Beloved, Jesus Christ, but…

Richard Wurmbrand, Voice of the Martyrs…or Voice of Deception?

wurmbrand-mugshot

Richard Wurmbrand…the Voice of the Martyrs…or the Voice of Deception?

Yes, he suffered in a Communist prison for 14 yrs and was tortured. He said he did it for Christ. But did he do it for Christ…. plus a cause? Are Christians to stand and believe in Christ,  plus a cause? Or to stand and believe in Christ,  plus nothing else? Richard Wurmbrand was a deceiver and false worker.  Suffering does not guarantee that the suffering one has suffered for the Lord Jesus Christ and the TRUTH. When we know, believe, trust that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Way the Truth and the Life, and trust in His finished work on the Cross and Him Crucified, that is the only cause that matters.

Redeemed Hippies' Place

Years ago, I bought a book in a Christian bookstore by Richard Wurmbrand, Tortured for Christ. It was one of those books I read over and over through the years. Each time was the same; something just did not set right with me. I could never put my finger on it, until someone recently made me aware of the following article which I got here:

http://www.amprpress.com/false_prophets.htm

It’s a long read, but I think you may find it well worth it.

The Bible says, “not everyone that saith Lord, Lord” but rather, “by their fruits ye shall know them” Examining the fruits of the apostles of the underground church is a discerning but disappointing exercise. While vocal in their opposition to communism, they are strangely silent concerning Marxism. While decrying the brutality of their alleged torturers, they often affirm their ideology. They all speak of terror, torture and persecution but they…

No Church Can Save you~

Spiritual Abuse Sanctuary

No “church” can save you. Any so-called Christian church, whether it be “Protestant” or “Roman Catholic” that teaches that you can’t be saved outside of their “church”, beliefs, doctrines, traditions, or sacraments, is lying against Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior and His Holy Scriptures. Make no mistake, the Holy Scriptures trump all man made doctrines, and traditions of men, and all forms and appearance of godliness.

In Christ Alone, by Faith Alone…

1And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and…
