New Age Spirituality infiltrating Christianity

Is this the Jesus of the bible or another Jesus as the apostle Paul warned the christian brethren of Corinthians about being deceived by through false ministers and their false gospel receiving a different spirit (2 Cor 11:4)

 

We have books being sold in christian book stores by authors claiming to be christians that are into new age philosophies and spirituality. We have pastors and ministers that are compromising the word of God for the new popular thing without examining the information against the word of God or trying the spirits working through the popular book authors, popular ministries teachings, and movements. Another book that is gaining popular momentum among professing christians is the book “Jesus Calling” by author Sarah Young. If other brethren are telling you how ‘great’ this book is and trying to pressure you to read it I suggest you listen in to this audio broadcast with Warren B. Smith who is an EX-level 5 new ager who has repented of following this false christ to turn to the true Son of God Jesus Christ.  Warren Smith explains how this author, Sarah Young, came to be a ‘christian’. Apparently she never came to salvation through the hearing of the gospel but through a ‘presence’ she felt and believed she was converted. He says she was also inspired by a new age book and in the book she teaches panentheism (that God is in everyone and in everything). Do you know the difference between the antichrist spirit posing as Jesus Christ and the true resurrected savior of the world sent from the Father Jesus Christ?
2 Cor 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.15 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.

New Age, get ready for what’s coming with Warren B. Smith

Evolution vs God (video)

Ray Comfort of Living Waters ministry has put together a very well thought out mini movie showing us from the ‘experts’ own mouths that evolution is a belief and those who believe it have put blind faith into something that there is no OBSERVABLE EVIDENCE that Darwinian Evolution is true based on one of Evolutions notions of the change of kinds. This is where one species eventually evolves into another completely different species.  Richard Dawkins an atheist who wrote ‘The God Delusions’ said, “Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence.” ~  But I say Evolution is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence…

Power of Positive Preaching by Jimmy Stevens (this is a refute against PMA New Age philosophy that professing christians have accepted fundamentally)

Power Of Positive Preaching By Jimmy Stevens

INTRODUCTION:  Positive outlook is refreshing.  All Christians should have it, Rom 5:1-2, 11

I. Our country and “Positive Mental Attitude” philosophy.  A. Philosophy: emphasizing positive thoughts to overcome negative issues in life.  It does not resolve the cause of problems, but tries to make them go away by overwhelming them with positive ideas.  B. RESULT:  “hippie” generation, rebellion, immorality, illegitimacy, sexually transmitted diseases, corrupt or no work ethic, little or no respect for authority, nor respect for the dignity of life—abortion.

II. Church and the “positive mental attitude” philosophy in preaching and practice.A. Emphasize the positive and avoid the negative.”  “Negative teaching is legalism.” B. Result:  Poor Bible knowledge.  Unable to defend God’s truth.  Compromise.  Drifting from NT patterns.  Feel saved while in sin.  There is no wrong, therefore, no caution against the danger of sin.  You can be nice to sin, but sin will NEVER, be nice to truth.  Standing for nothing and accepting anything.

III. Many suffer from “negaphobia” (neg-negative, phobia- persistent fear of something).  A. Society: politically correct terminology, alternative lifestyles—homosexuality, adultery, fornication.  B. Church: Don’t challenge “false religions” or “false doctrines”, or call one a “false teacher”.  Openly criticize and malign those who openly defend the truth against error——Talk about negative!  In the mean time, false doctrine continues to rob souls of eternal salvation.  Redefine sin as an opinion, then defend it under Romans 14.  Preach partial truths, or truth without application.  Don’t convict sinners. C. “We need more positive and less negative preaching.”  Positive and negative are often subjectively defined.  Whose concept of “positive” will we use?  Ours or God’s?

IV. The Bible and “positive mental attitude” preaching.A. Warns against it.  Jer 8:4-12,  2 Pet 2:1-3, 18-19, 2 Cor 11:12-15B. Negative teaching does what positive cannot.  Most understand positive statements of good conduct and need no warning for doing good, Gal 5:23.  However, people constantly need warning against sin,

V. “Power of Positive Preaching”, is determined by the results, not by how it sounds to the human ear.A. God’s idea of “Positive Preaching”.  “Positive” instructs and informs.  “Negative” protects and preserves “positive” by warning against sin.  “Negative” helps one understand evil without experiencing it.  “Negative” yields positive results by “positive” prevention. B. Summary:1. Positive truths instruct, encourage and edify.  POSITIVE2. Negative truths warn, convict and prevent one from sinning.  POSITIVE3. Favoring one over the other defeats the power of both.  NEGATIVE4. Positive only, neglects valuable warnings and rebukes.  negative5. Negative only neglects full instruction and encouragement. negative

VI. All of God’s truths produce “positive” results when preached and obeyed.  A. Adam and Eve.  Gen 2:16-17B. Deut 10:1-4, 12-14.  For good.  5:7-21, 8 of the 10 commandments are negative.  In explaining the 10 commandments, 15 negative and 5 positive statements.  V 5:32-33.C. All scriptures, positive and negative, produce POSITIVE results.1. Jesus magnified the positive with “negative” statements.  Matt 15:11-14, 22:34-40.2. 2 Tim 3:13-17, to make a man complete—POSITIVE.  3. 2 Tim 4:1-5, preaching both positive and negative—POSITIVE.D. The whole counsel of God.  Acts 20:27, 1 Cor 4:17.E. A wise person learns the positive power of negative instructions.  Job 5:17-18, Jer 36-38, 2 Cor 7:6-11, Heb 12:3-11, Acts 2:22-24, 36-47.

CONCLUSION:  True Positive Preaching can only be accomplished when preachers and Christians declare and live the whole counsel of God.  A. To emphasize the positive over the negative produces negative results.B. To emphasize the negative over the positive produces negative results.C. To teach a balance of both will produce positive results.D. Preaching the whole counsel of God is always POSITIVE PREACHING.

Dire Warning to the Church concerning the Rapture

A facebook friend posted this video and I just recently watched it. Very powerful. A letter is read that was written by christian holocaust survivor Corrie Ten Boom concerning the Rapture. I was very blessed to hear this and I hope you will be to. Corrie Ten Boom reminds us that without the baptism of the Holy Spirit we may not be able to overcome tribulations and persecutions and even more so the last days tribulation. Please take the time to watch and listen. GBY

Here is the link to that letter that EMOAF made available at their website.

The Hebrew Roots Movement Simply Explained

By now I am sure that many christians have heard something about the Hebrew Roots Movement. Even more is that there are some who have been involved in it to come out of it’s clutches of being under the law and departure of the grace of God. It has gained momentum in christian churches and circles because of the seduction of thinking that one must go back to their ‘Hebrew Roots’ in order to understand God and His word better. Though one might gain some insight with some of this knowledge, ultimately, one will not end up abiding in Christ but just quite the opposite. This is a link to an article that explains the  Hebrew Roots Movement very simply and to the point. If you don’t know much about it I encourage you to get familiar with it because many are being seduced by it and thereby becoming bewitched as the apostle Paul warned the church of Galatia.
