Many Exhibit Insanity because God gave them over to a Reprobate Mind

984

I’d pretty much have to agree with this from what I see going on in the world today. How are some of these American’s coping with their “issues”? Besides a lot of weird psychotropic drugs, a lot of them turn to “therapists”, and to make sure they even have therapy at home, acquire a “therapy dog”, cat, or whatever. And if their not comfortable leaving their therapy dog at home, will take it shopping in the grocery cart. Folks, sane people just don’t do things like this.

There are books and teachings going around telling those in the Body of Christ that they need to repent and pray to restore America to something that would be more like 1956 rather than 1776. Many quote 2 Chron 7:14 but that passage applies only to Israel (find out why). The big rage in some circles is “The Harbinger” book, as if God is behind the falsehoods presented therein to get Americans that have rejected Him to repent.  Some Christians obviously are confused by the bad theology that is going around, so let me try to clarify things a bit. The passage of scripture that Christians should be quoting that fittingly applies to America and much of the world is the following:

Rom 1:21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

This passage totally explains what is happening in America. Many in America do not want to retain God in their knowledge so God gave many Americans over to a reprobate mind to do those things that are not convenient….(for any moral civil society).

As long as most in America want nothing to do with God there is no hope for any change for the better in America. Praying for those willfully rejecting the knowledge of God is not going to make these people repent. Since they choose not to retain the knowledge of God they can no longer make sane choices based on anything that God reveals in His creation or in His written word.

Those given over to a reprobate mind have minds that are devoid of good judgment. They continually chose evil and deceive themselves into believing their evil is good. Poole said in his commentary:

They were not given up to this reprobate mind all at once, but by degrees. First, they were given up to their own hearts’ lusts, #Ro 1:24; then, to vile affections, #Ro 1:26; and then, lastly, to a mind void of judgment; to such an evil habit, that they could do nothing but evil.

Romans 1:24 is where many are at in this country now. The only remedy is people believing the gospel that unfortunately they have no God-consciousness remaining to accept. Obviously then, once people reach the point of exhibiting their reprobate minds for all to see, there is little hope of ever changing their minds. Praying for these people to repent is much like expecting that your prayers can sway those that have already made the deliberate choice to reject God.

People wonder why many in this nation now choose and exhibit self-destructive insanity. The fact that many have been given over to a reprobate mind explains why America is now so self-destructive. Here are 50 rhetorical questions for the sane people remaining in America to consider. After reading them, you also might be convinced that many Americans have been given over to a reprobate mind.

  49. Why do Americans use more illegal drugs than any nation on earth?
  50. Why do Americans use legal mind altering drugs more than any other nation on earth?

The list showing that America is becoming a nation of reprobate minds can be almost as endless as our news headlines. If you agree, don’t worry so much about some specific judgment coming upon America, although they may come. Those with reprobate minds bring continual judgment on America through their own insane destructive choices. How do you turn a nation around when the reprobate minds say that they do not care about God –  just give us more bread and circuses? No nation can survive when the majority have been given over to a reprobate mind.

Rick Warren-Purpose Driven Deception!


Admittedly, I haven’t read Rick Warren’s Book, “Purpose Driven Life”..however, I knew enough about it not to even bother. But realizing how many people are being deceived by this man, his agenda, his popularity among those who are seeking more of a self help way to God, I feel compelled to offer up this series as a warning to stay away from this dangerous man and his deceptive doctrines. Just the mere fact that he weaves so much obvious New Age deception into his book and teachings and that he is a proponent of Robert Schuller, who I know as a false teacher- is enough for me to feel confident that I am not offering up a misguided take on this man! He is indeed a deceiver and New Age change agent!
These videos are an interview with Warren Smith about his book, “Deceived on Purpose”…and his expose on Rick Warren.

So-called “Christian” Reiki Exposed as Dangerous

evolution-aliens
I have recently been posting on the dangers of New Age, the occult, Yoga, Eastern mysticism, Cults, and various and sundry other unbiblical and downright demonic practices making inroads into the church, which is supposed to be holy, not a haunt for every unclean bird. Now, we have yet another unclean bird, a vulture actually, coming to roost in the branches of the church…….so-called Reiki.It’s actually not new, but what’s frightening is that like many of these other occultish spiritual practices, it’s worming  its way into the church and many Christians are accepting it as a valid expression of divine healing from God. This is blasphemous!

Can anything that seems or feels good, or heals be a bad thing? You’d better believe it can. Satan is well able to do healings if it will take people away from Jesus Christ. Not only that, the impartations given during Reiki “healings” are never going to be by the power of the Holy Spirit , but instead, by Satan  allowing his demons to enter in. I assure you, this will not be a “healing” experience for you when all is said and done.

Those of you who came to this site because you recognized “Christian Reiki” as being practiced amongst church people and want more information about how to combat it will recognize the truth in the videos, just as they bear witness with my spirit. On the other hand, those who called themselves evangelical Christians who are embracing  Reiki as something wonderful and not harmful, you are probably either going to be horribly offended by the content I’ve placed here for your edification…or, you will have the eyes of your understanding enlightened.  If you are a Christian who has begun practicing Reiki believing it’s OK with God, I urge you to repent and come back fully to the obedience of Jesus Christ and follow Him.
As a bible believing Christian, I do not believe there is any room for argument, (if the truth be told), that Reiki, and other pagan or heathen practices are not compatible with the teachings of Christ.
Either receiving or practicing Reiki,  if not repented of, will open the door for demonic spirits to enter in and begin to oppress you, influencing your thought processes and taking you away from Jesus Christ by following an idolatrous false path. This has been Satan’s great desire and purpose from the beginning, to deceive God’s people and get them as far away from Jesus and the truth of God as he can.

Demons seek entrance into the door of the mind and body through Reiki

Reiki tries to make it seem to be a good, loving thing of God, when in reality it is demonic in origin

Reiki is totally aligned and attuned to Yoga, whether it is claimed or not.

Next, I am posting Part 4 to Gabriella Claires amazing series on Reiki, brilliantly and honestly done. I would encourage every Reiki practitioner, or those who are considering receiving Reiki to read this series in it’s entirety, and to do so without making a pre-judgment condemnation of it, but with the intention of gaining insight and truth. That’s just simple wisdom.

The Occult Practice of Reiki Part 4: My Personal Experience with Reiki

In this fourth post of this series on Reiki, I will share my testimony about Reiki, but there are certain details that I must keep confidential, as I am dedicated to at least attempting to remain anonymous if possible. Allow me to briefly set the stage. I was raised as a Christian and was a strong believer in Jesus. Once I became independent, I began to have many questions and to explore my spirituality. In the process, I discovered New Age philosophies and practices. Things such as near-death experiences, astral projection, psychic abilities, reincarnation, etc. became fascinating to me. I longed to know and experience God deeply, but was going about it the wrong way. Over time, my beliefs evolved and I experienced quite a bit of existential conflict and confusion.

For personal reasons, I became depressed and decided to join a cult out of a desperate need to be understood and to belong. The cult claimed to promote free thinking, which really meant thinking like them. As a consequence of involving myself in this cult, I became agnostic and was subjected to arrogant manipulation and spiritual trauma. Though that sounds terrible, and it was, this was the turning point in my life that caused me to call upon the Lord. Sometimes our worst decisions in life can lead to our best ones. In my darkest moment, I cried out to Jesus, and He saved me. I left the cult abruptly, and have been a Christian ever since. I will tell a more elaborate version of that testimony in a future post, but the reason that I have shared a short version of it right now is to provide a backstory for my involvement in Reiki.

Rededicating my life to Christ did not make all of my questions and New Age beliefs go away overnight. I had to go through a period of relearning in order to gain discernment and understanding. My heart broke (and still breaks) at the thought of others suffering in the way that I did. I longed for a way to help others recover from spiritual trauma and find deliverance. Thus, I became interested in healing.

Although the desire to heal had been in my heart for a long time, I had never had a reason to pursue it, especially because I wondered if God would really use me to heal anyone. Rarely in my experience with going to church throughout my life had I seen healing occur. Despite my prior exploration in the New Age, I had never really done any serious research into Reiki and had never practiced it. I had read positive things about it from a Christian author, however.

I knew a few people who practiced Reiki, a couple of them being Christians. Although Reiki seemed like a possibility, I cautiously hesitated to pursue it due to my previous traumatic spiritual experiences. I felt the Lord calling me to be a healer, but had no idea what to do other than to pray and ponder. One day, my friend, who is an unbeliever and practices Reiki, came over to my house to hang out with me and asked me if they could try their Reiki on me. Thinking that this was oddly coincidental, or even synchronistic, I consented. I had received Reiki treatments before, which had not seemed to have had any negative consequences, so I wanted to have the chance to reevaluate it.

Well, that night I dreamed about Reiki literally all night. At the time, I felt like that was a confirmation that I should do it. Retrospectively, however, I recognize that that was Satan tempting me. A few weeks later, I addressed one of my Christian friends who practices Reiki in order to ask them about their experiences with it and to ask them if they could attune me. The conversation went well, and my friend agreed to attune me, so I decided to pursue Reiki.

I received various additional signs which I believed confirmed my decision. However, I cannot share those in detail, as doing so could give away my identity to certain individuals. My story right now as I have told it could apply to many people, so I will keep it that way. All I can say is that I had a few positive dreams about doing Reiki, and a friend gave me a prophetic word, of sorts.

My Reiki master friend expressed generosity and kindness to me, and the attunement went well. I did not have any mystical experiences during the activation ritual like many people claim to have. When I tried Reiki on others, however, I would receive insights about them that they had not told me, and the sessions seemed to have positive results. One friend received alleviation from a headache and newfound energy after having a session with me. A few other people felt emotional clarity and peace after receiving Reiki treatments from me. All the while, I thought I was being used by God and serving as a vessel for the Holy Spirit to flow through.

Though I believed that Reiki was what God wanted me to do, I still had doubts, which I now know were the Holy Spirit warning me. The first red flag that I encountered about Reiki was when I was reading a book called Anatomy of the Spirit by Caroline Myss. At one point in the book, Myss describes how she has an ability called “medical intuitiveness” and how she spontaneously channeled a spirit for a client. After reading that, I put the book down and never picked it up again. I instinctively knew that something didn’t feel right about channeling, but at the same time, I didn’t completely rule it out, either. It would be accurate to say that I was a rather double-minded person. At the time, I thought that maybe New Age practices weren’t all bad and that maybe I had only had traumatic spiritual experiences because of having associated with the wrong people in that cult.

The next red flag that I encountered about Reiki was one day when I met with a friend—the friend whose headache had gone away after having received a Reiki treatment from me. This friend confided in me that they had had a very distressing and demonic (not normal) nightmare. I don’t think that my friend connected the Reiki treatment with the nightmare. The thought crossed my mind, but I dismissed it as Satan trying to sabotage us and discourage me from healing. Later on, when I would have my own bad experiences with Reiki and repent of practicing it, I would put two and two together to realize that the Reiki treatment really had caused my friend’s nightmare. Luckily, while my friend and I had met, we prayed together, and I shared a prayer for deliverance with them. Unfortunately, I don’t know how to broach the subject with my friend now to check up on them, and I really regret having subjected them to such a dangerous spiritual practice. I had only wanted to help others, but instead, I had been hurting them.

The next red flag that I encountered about Reiki actually did not pertain directly to it. A friend and I went to an event where there were fortune tellers. So of course, we decided to have our fortunes told. I honestly had no idea what to expect and thought that it would be just for fun. Well, it turned out that my personal fortune teller told me things about myself and certain beliefs of mine that I had neither disclosed to them nor hinted toward. I had been expecting a brief palm reading, but instead I got a ten-minute session with a psychic who used tarot cards and channeling. At first, I was blown away by the things that the psychic had told me, and I walked away from that session trembling.

After much thought and prayer, however, I later came to the conclusion that this encounter had not been of God. Filled with regret, I went into my prayer closet, laid prostrate on the floor, and cried to Jesus for forgiveness. I was so devastated that I had been unfaithful to the one person who never leaves nor forsakes me. Amidst crying tears of sorrow at my sin, I began to sing “How He Loves” by John Mark McMillan. When I reached the lyrics that say, “if His grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking,” the grace of God replaced my sadness and I began to cry tears of thankfulness.

It was this incident that made me trust my instinct that channeling is demonic. Mediums claim that channeling is not inviting a spirit into one’s body but rather tuning into the frequency that a spirit is communicating on. In other words, the medium supposedly acts sort of like a TV channel. That’s ahem, cough cough, total BS. Channeling is definitely opening oneself up to demonic possession. Remembering back to what I had read in Anatomy of the Spirit several months prior, I decided to research several other prominent Reiki masters to see if they also do channeling. With a quick search on the internet, I found that many of them do. 99% of the ones whom I looked up, do. I’m sure there are others out there who do not do channeling and whom I did not look up, but that’s aside from the point. Actually, to get technical, all Reiki practitioners believe that they are channeling universal life force energy when they perform healings, so…

Anyway, the discovery that research revealed to me made me feel very uncomfortable about Reiki, but it did not make me turn completely away from it yet. Instead, I half-way took a break for a while from practicing Reiki. In other words, I was hesitant to do it because of my doubts and only did it sometimes on myself whenever I wanted to test it again.

Shortly after the fortune teller incident, I finally found a church that felt right for me. I encountered the Holy Spirit there in a way that I had not encountered Him at any other church. The members there quickly became like family to me. Ultimately, God used my church family to bring me completely out of Reiki. During a worship meeting, I asked for prayer, and a couple of my church friends said that they sensed that my home needed spiritual cleansing. Some things that I have struggled with ever since the traumatic experiences I had in the cult are hearing voices while trying to fall asleep and having demonic nightmares. The nightmares, however, aren’t nearly as bad as the uncontrollable kind that I had when I was in the cult. God protects me by waking me up from them, and I seem to have fewer of them over time, but nevertheless, I still suffer this consequence. Reiki did not seem to worsen my problem at first, although I did notice my perceptions gradually and subtly become stranger during sleep than they had been before. This is what my church friends had prayed for me about, and they came to my home to cleanse it with prayer, worship, and the anointing of oil.

At that point, I asked them what they thought about Reiki, and they warned me against it, saying that it is an idol. Well, I did not want to hold onto Reiki if it was an idol—though I was not sure whether it was or not—because I wanted to be faithful to God. Therefore, my church friends led me through a prayer of renunciation, and I got rid of items that were associated with Reiki. It took me a little while longer to let go completely of Reiki because I was confused. Why had I had good experiences with it? What if I had made a decision out of fear instead of out of love by giving it up? What if I had thrown away a gift that God had given me?

All of this uncertainty caused me to feel depressed. At the same time, I felt guilty for feeling depressed because my home felt much more peaceful, and I thought I should be feeling grateful instead. In His grace, God showed me a dream of a rainbow over a cloud to comfort me. He was the rainbow, and I was the gray cloud. This dream reminded me of the scripture that says that God will rejoice over us with singing (Zephaniah 3:17). I also now associate it with the scripture that says, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time” (1 Peter 5:6, NIV). Though I felt so guilty and confused, God reminded me of His everlasting love for me and of how He is always watching over me.

The depression finally got to me, and I made the rather bad decision to try Reiki on myself one last time. After I did it, I knew that it had been the wrong choice. When laying hands on myself, I heard a demonic voice say something about my throat, which deterred me from attempting to heal my throat chakra. The next day, I came down with a fever and did not immediately make a connection to what had happened the night prior. Reiki experts would think that my illness was a result of my body detoxifying, but I know that is not true because of the demonic voice that I had heard. My illness started out as a fever, became a sore throat, and turned into full-blown bronchitis. My cough was violent and relentless, and I couldn’t sleep for two nights straight as a result. I felt so depressed and alone laying there awake, sick, with no one to hold me. The most devastating part of being this sick for two solid weeks was that I could not sing to the Lord. Satan attacked me in this way because he does not want us to worship God. He wants us to worship him.

On top of being ill, I had several demonic nightmares, as well as a demonic out-of-body experience. The OBE is too weird to attempt explaining. The only thing that I will say about the OBE is that it started out feeling nice with the sensations of warm energy vibrating from my hands to the chakras. Then the chakras swirled very intensely and I encountered the spirits behind these sensations. The source did not match the sensations at all. It is as the Bible says: “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). I won’t describe the rest of the OBE, as like I said, it is too weird. I now know that chakras are not naturally part of our spiritual anatomy. They are portals opened up by demons when a person messes with Reiki and other such practices. These portals give demons access to the person’s body, mind, and spirit.

Some examples of demonic nightmares that I had include a dream that involved my lungs being possessed by a snake and a dream that involved hellfire. Reiki is connected with something called Kundalini, which is supposedly a spiritual energy that surges through the spine and chakras and that is likened to a serpent. Recall that Satan is depicted as a serpent in the Bible. I never experimented with Kundalini awakenings and whatnot in practicing Reiki, as that was a line that I was unwilling to cross, but I’m explaining this phenomenon in order to point out the demonic nature of energy healing. Note that when you mess with Reiki, you mess with all of it, whether you intend to or not. Some Christians who practice Reiki, for instance, choose not to use the symbols or not to consult with spirit guides. In actuality, they are involving themselves with these forces without realizing it despite their intentions not to. Anyway, doing Reiki on myself obviously increased the frequency and intensity of my nightmares. Doing Reiki and other occult practices opens doorways to demonic oppression, attacks, and influence. It gives Satan legal rights to torment a person.

In addition to evil dreams and visions, I had a telekinetic experience. One day when I was having dinner and working at my computer, I suddenly felt a cold sensation that started in my shoulder blade. The coldness spread through my arm to my hand, and it was tingly. Then, I noticed that as I lifted my hand, a small plastic wrapper lifted along with it. At first, I thought that I was imagining things and that maybe the wrapper had just gotten stuck to my skin or that static was causing this to happen. I tried it with the other hand, and nothing happened. Then I tried again several more times with the initial hand, and the same phenomenon repeated itself. As the wrapper would lift, coldness would rush throughout my hand. Now, some people might think “How cool!” if this were to happen to them. Heck, I thought that telekinesis was cool, in theory. But in reality, I was like “oh h*** no!” I did not like the power. I concluded from this incident that if I had not been doing Reiki, then there would not have been a demonic opening for such telekinesis to occur through me.

Well, after all of that, I finally got the point. About time, right? I therefore gave up Reiki for good and deleted every single book having to do with Reiki and New Age spirituality on my computer, as well as every related file and website on my favorites list, and everything else that I could think of. Getting rid of virtual possessions is just as important as getting rid of material possessions when it comes to spiritually cleansing your living space. One of my friends from church came over and prayed with me again, and I was grateful for their grace and understanding in interacting with me. They did not judge me at all, but instead showed empathy. After my friend prayed with me, I recovered from my illness in a normal amount of time. (The antibiotics helped, too). I confessed my sin to God, repented, and officially renounced practicing Reiki. I still, however, struggled with nightmares and did not get enough sleep. When I was finally well enough to return to counseling, my psychotherapist said that I looked like I felt terrible and advised me to seek help from my church. I was so scared at night whenever it was time to go to sleep.

My friend from church had told me that the nightmares would try to come back, but that I would just have to say “no” to them. After enduring restless nights with extreme anxiety and depression, and perhaps a bit of suicidal ideation, God finally built up the courage in me to say “enough is enough.” So, I prayed to God asking Him how to defend myself and cleanse my home. Amidst praying, I felt the Holy Spirit tell me to proclaim God’s promises. Anointing my home with lavender oil and prayer, I proclaimed God’s promises, such as “love always protects” (1 Corinthians 13:7), and “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).

Additionally, I praised the Lord with singing and read scripture. As I was reading the Bible, I suddenly felt, saw, and heard a ball of energy whiz past my ear. By the Holy Spirit, I knew that that was a demon trying to scare me into thinking that the house cleansing was not working. I knew that Satan wanted me to believe that I had screwed up beyond redemption and that God would therefore not protect me. The demons were bluffing, and this was really their desperate scare tactic. The ball of energy whizzing past my ear startled me and caused me to jump involuntarily. In the name of Jesus, I commanded it to leave and I commanded that demons no longer had the right to be in my home. From that day forward, I was able to have restful sleep again. Though I still experience demonic nightmares at times, they are a result of Satan attacking me as a child of God because he hates Christ and not because he has any legal rights to do so. When Satan does not have legal rights to attack a person, that person has much greater protection from God. Additionally, we have to claim our promise to protection from God; we have to believe that His word is true. I know from experience that fearing demons and doubting our Christ-given authority as believers gives them leverage to oppress us. We especially have to understand God’s gift of grace for us and our identity as His children. I won’t pretend to have reached this point of total understanding yet, but I am on the journey there and God is working in me.

Now, I know without a doubt that all New Age practices and philosophies are not of God. I want nothing to do with them! There is no true meaning in them. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). New Age spirituality cannot offer any true peace or bring you closer to God. Please trust me on this one.

Giving up Reiki entirely was very difficult, because I did not (and still do not) know how to break it to my friend/former Reiki master. Additionally, I found it pretty hope-shattering to discover that I was back to square one and had seemingly no meaningful way to help others. I knew that Satan wanted me to feel useless, worthless, hopeless, and purposeless, but I could not help but feel that way anyway.

After having confided in a loved one about some of the things that I was going through, which I normally would have never done, my loved one prayed for me and I had a dream from God the next morning. As I awoke, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Behind every masterpiece, there is a story.” Though I still experience depression on the path to finding my calling, I find hope in the message of this dream and in the encouragement that God gives me along the way. Even though my story is hard to live through at times, I take comfort in knowing that I am God’s masterpiece, so everything will come together. You, dear reader, are God’s masterpiece, too, so have hope! God loves you and wants you to experience true freedom in your life. The plans that He has for you and me are good (Jeremiah 29:11). Jesus Christ is our true Savior, healer, and deliverer. If you haven’t met Him yet, and you would like to, then ask Him into your heart.❤ I hope Jesus uses this testimony to call out to you.

But most of all, whatever you do, always remember to call out to Jesus!

New Age-The Enemy of Christ Exposed

Documentary: The NEW AGE, (the enemy of Christ exposed)

Ok, so I will admit that back in the day, I ignorantly and stupidly got sucked into New Age. A lot of us did, as it was considered “cool”, and we didn’t want to be associated with that stodgy old-time religion. Bad move. Long story short, after studying for 8 or 9 months trying to figure out how to get into this “godhood” thing, I realized I was going down a dead-end road 90 miles an hour. One thing led to another, I got saved, filled with the Holy Spirit and after that for years I was so happy, so “on fire for God”, so engrossed with Jesus, and studying the bible, I was not only NOT interested in New Age, but was not aware of the growing encroachment of New Age practices and teachings creeping into the church, the Body of Christ.


All of that has changed. No longer can I ignore New age and occult coming into the church, because it’s everywhere. Christians are now holding Yoga classes in the church gym, Reiki, Eastern mysticism and meditation, contemplative prayer, wicca, and you fill in the blanks. Every aspect of New Age as well as many other occult themes are being introduced into the church. And what’s worse, is that the mainstream organized church has ignorantly embraced these practices as if it were fine with God. Well, guess what? It isn’t and I believe the LORD is calling his people to call out these false doctrines and practices and kick the devil out of His church. I believe He expects us to do this, not wait around for God to do something about it, but to be accountable to keep the church clean of corruption, false doctrines and false workers. 

Please take an hour to watch this documentary on the history and origin of New Age. And then join us in sounding the alarm and exposing it wherever you encounter it.

 

The Lie of the Serpent is the second part of the controversial Megiddo series, which next focuses on the highly influential New Age movement. But is the New Age really new? Or does it represent the ancient doctrine taught by the serpent to Eve in the Garden of Eden? The answer will startle and amaze you as you learn the influence of the serpent’s teaching through the spiritual explosion of occult activity in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Some of the greatest and most recognized people of the modern era (including Charles Darwin, Thomas Edison, Adolf Hitler and Hillary Clinton) have been influenced by the movement that has re-awakened mankind’s communication with the spirit realm, and re-shaped the Western view of God and His relationship to mankind. What are the implications of this “paradigm shift” that seeks to introduce a new global consciousness? Will this new consciousness really bring mankind into the dawning of a golden era? Or the awakening of another dark age?

Full of highly detailed research and exhaustive documentation, Megiddo II challenges even the most skeptical viewer to consider the consequence of the global awakening taking place before our very eyes.

Join speakers Dave Hunt, Caryl Matrisciana, Dr. Kent Hovind, Pastor Joe Schimmel, and Dr. Stan Monteith who expose the movement that seeks to unite mankind in a one-world religion through the United Nations.

Global adherents claim to await a “universal Christ” to lead the world. What happens to those who will not follow this world leader? And are there sinister warnings against those who refuse to be “initiated” into the New Age?

Wide Is The Gate: The New Spiritual Deception

 
We are being told that Christianity needs to “be reinvented”? That Christianity needs to be reformed.

We are seeing multitudes of new, strange movements springing up everywhere one turns.

 

 

 

Apostasy and ecumenism, which is in essence to put all religions into a blender so to speak and incorporate them into Christianity. We are seeing the so-called emergent church, the rebirth of ancient mysticism, contemplative prayer, which is nothing more than Eastern mysticism, i.e., meditation, New Age practices such as Yoga, which is East Indian Kundalini movement, the seeker friendly churches, “Reformed theology”, which is nothing more than Calvinism warmed over and made to appear more “relevant”. We have “mama Mary” the Catholic church calling for the ecumenical coming together of all religions, and taking her daughter, so-called, the Protestants to come back under her wing. Nothing new there, the RCC has always been more than willing to incorporate any belief system into and under the Catholic umbrella as long as it embraced the Pope and total authority of the church.

 

We have seen in the last two decades, any and every type of deception out there in the world attempting to claw it’s way into biblical Christianity and attach itself like a transplanted organ would and become part of the original. But friends, that’s not the gospel of Jesus Christ according to the scriptures, which are very explicit about what and what not is scriptural truth. The world doesn’t like this and calls it “absolutism” and it rankles them because they want to believe what they want to believe even if that means attempting to put a square block into a round hole. But that won’t be scriptural and God is not going to accept it. Jesus said WIDE IS THE GATE that leads to destruction, and as of this date in 2012, we have multitudes on that road. I heard Oprah say, but there MUST BE more roads to heaven! Who says so Oprah? Oprah doesn’t know this but she is merely a pebble in the vast scope of the eternal. And she doesn’t get to call the shots, and neither do you or I. It’s not our opinion that carries weight and that will decide the final outcome of things it’s Gods.

 

Think about this, if there is VERY GOD, the I AM, then by his very nature he is supernatural in being. Is it beyond one’s finite mind to consider that scripture indicates correctly there is also an adversary of evil named Satan? And that his one tool, is deception. Then our weapon must be the truth. The truth of the gospel and our faith as our power. Jesus said over and over again, “Be not deceived” or, “Let no man deceive you”, but allow me to suggest our worst enemy may be ourselves in that we have a mind with which to take in information, and a spirit to receive what we accept. Therefore,lets examine carefully what we do or do not accept as truth and why. Let’s go through the scriptures prayerfully as we study the Word of God, asking the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us to all truth.

Yes, I know you’ve probably heard these admonitions before, but please do not take them lightly because truly, the days are evil and gross darkness has swept across the land.

May grace and peace be multiplied to you this day,

Scarlett
