THE WAR FOR THE MIND-- YOUR MIND
A Large Introduction to New Spirituality, the Emerging Church, and You
By Steve Van Nattan
What is The New Spirituality and Emergent Church?
You must be familiar with the Post Modern and New Spirituality teachings of the Emergent Church and Purpose Driven blather heretics before making full use of this article.
I am assuming you are already aware of the New Age foundation of this movement. I will try to fill in enough of their thoughts to help you understand what is going on.
The Christian's mind is under possession all of the time. It is possessed by either YOU, the devil, or Christ. Here are some verses that help show this:
Philippians 2:5 (KJV) Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Romans 12:2 (KJV) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Romans 8:5 (KJV) For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
There is no empty mind, regardless what your in-church spirit guide tells you.
Romans 8:6 (KJV) For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
God makes NO reference, from Genesis to Revelation, of "to be empty minded."
Romans 7:25 (KJV) I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
The mind given to Christ wants to SERVE. The mind, once empty, serves no one. It is a vacuum ready to be filled.
Proverbs 29:11 (KJV) A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.
The mind is the storehouse of the wise man, and he does NOT carelessly empty it. The person who empties his mind eagerly is a fool.
Ephesians 4:17 (KJV) This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
20 But ye have not so learned Christ;
Your mind will take you somewhere-- either to vanity, darkness, blindness, and ignorance, or it will take you to Christ's mind. See Phil. 2:5 above
Thus, we see that there is NO empty mind anywhere on earth. The New Age and the Emergent Church, along with Rick Warren, Robert Schuler, and all the modern mind games church house gurus, will tell you that you should empty your mind. Well, friend, if your mind is empty, it will soon be full.
Those who practice mind emptying and breathing exercises, a carbon copy of New Age Transcendental Meditation, report that they feel great power and light come into their mind. You better believe they do. Here is the light they get:
2 Corinthians 11:13 (KJV) 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.
It is no surprise that "America's pastor," Rick Warren, brings you light.
The same light is called White Light by LSD users. A friend of mine told me that when he was on an LSD White Light trip he later realized he was demon possessed. Hinduism makes much of light, as do all Eastern mystics. If you give up control of your mind, someone will come in-- either Jesus Christ or Satan. And, there is a counterfeit Jesus among us.
I grew up in Africa, and later I was a missionary in Kenya and Ethiopia. As a kid I used to go to bed at night often listening to a devil dance in a nearby village. I have seen Africans under a trance. Their whole physical appearance is changed, and they are totally out of control. Their mind has become the possession of someone other than themselves. I have watched as a African would play a simple two measure tune a hundred times of more until he was in a state where his mind was totally out to lunch. Here is the New Spirit church in Congo doing a dance called The Devil is Under My Feet. I don't believe it-- the vain repetition is the same of devil dance, and the devil in IN them.
This is what modern CCM music and Praise and Worship are all about. This is what the Apostle's Creed is all about. This is what Fundamental Baptist preaching and shouting services are all about. The same thing, Sunday after Sunday, year after year, is repeated without one bit of cognitive discipline. The mind coasts and goes numb when the creed is recited, when the holy laughter starts, when the preacher strings out 40 minutes of Baptist clichés, and while the good old boys yell "Amen" and "preach it brother." It is vain repetition of the heathen, but it has Christian content, so it must be OK with God. As the ecstatic euphoria level goes up, "We are really feeling the presence of the Holy Ghost here today aren't we?"
Here is a Praise and Worship piece called Shekhina Glory, Fall On Me.
Now, read what the Shakhina really is.
This shows you how literally Hinduism has infiltrated, and alleged Christians have NO idea they are praising Satan himself.
You were with me all the way to the last couple of paragraphs, right? And, now you are mad. Good. That is exactly what I wanted. Those of you who keep reading may learn something.
The New Spirituality promises something big and seductive. It marries the jackboot Wangerian wailing arrogance of CCM, the sound of the B Ward at the mental hospital, with the empty messages of good feelings, and to hell with hell- we are all God.
It amuses- A-Muse- Against thinking, you Latin students. Thinking is off sides, old fashioned- FEEL it-- make it physical-- scream a little-- get on some shuckin and jivin. Or is it an old fashioned Baptist shouting service? Feels good, right? Well, WHERE IS THE BIBLE DID GOD TELL YOU TO MAKE SURE YOU FEEL GOOD? What is worship anyway:
Psalms 29:2 (KJV) Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
Psalms 95:6 (KJV) O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
Psalms 99:5 (KJV) Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.
John 4:24 (KJV) God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Revelation 15:4 (KJV) Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
Luke 24:51 (KJV) And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53 And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
WORSHIP IS ALL ABOUT BLESSING GOD, NOT YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The New Spirituality promises peace for the world. It promises the one mind that Paul allegedly commanded in the New Testament, but without propositional truth. You are, at your center, once your mind is empty, a little god is all that is left. That little god is YOU. And, even better, you are a part of all of god, which is the whole human race. God is in you, better yet, you are god. The Oneness of six billion people being god is a mighty force. Once harnessed, this force can bring peace on earth and goodwill toward men. Ever hear those words before? Well, they are the promise, not of the angels to shepherds about the Person of Jesus Christ, but they are the promise of the gurus of the Emergent Church to empty headed ditto heads.
This is a strange thing to consider. How did Rick Warren sell 30 million books? His book is really bland and mundane. What is it that made people run after this new thing?
Evangelicals, for about 60 years, have had everything they believed systematically stolen from them by scholars and pastors. Doctrine by doctrine, these sons of belial picked the pockets and brains of the masses in Christendom. That left them with empty heads. It was trendy. It felt good because they became smarter than God, and the Bible became an archaic book.
But, alas, it did not feel so good in the end. It did not give people a good reason to go to church and keep involved in Christendom. It was only about being in a social club. The part called worship became utterly dull. Only the most clever Evangelical preachers could keep the people's minds in gear by telling very clever stories and by doing feel good stuff. The intellect could not be fed on social action for very long. This is why the Praise and Worship circus and CCM became so important. The sermon was just too dull to bring them out to church.
Then, along came John, slow walking John, slow talking John, John the cool head in a turtle neck sweater, and he said, "Empty your mind." That was easy-- they had already done that. To have nothing in your mind to believe in, and to be told to empty your mind, is like telling a kid with an ice cream cone in his hand that he will be happy fulfilled kid if he can manage to eat an ice cream cone.
You may decide, after reading this page, and after reading a book from Lighhouse Trials Publishing (see top of page) that you need to talk to your pastor about this. I must warn you that pastors who have been seduced by Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Church and the Emergent Church are drugged. They are like a pot head on a drug trip-- worse, to those of you older folks who remember, your pastor is on an LSD trip called "white light." There is no other reality to your pastor anymore. He cannot see it. He probably believes the New Age has gone away, and the Lord's Church, courtesy of Rick Warren el al, have taken the high road away from the devil.
We have not heard much about the Satanic aspects of the New Age for a number of years, so to say the New Age has popped up in your pastor's vocabulary and tainted his soul and zeal is blasphemy to him. Why? Answer: The New Spirituality of Rick Warren fills the church house. The seduction of being told to empty one's mind and BE God brings out the backsliders and unsaved church members. It is all about nickels and noses and a butt every 24 inches. Success is seductive my friend, and you will not beat that one unless your pastor is really in love with the Word of God. You can tell that by how much Bible he reads during his sermons.
The members are even more seduced. They heard the promise of godhead, and..... Voile- It is done! And it felt good. Empty my mind, and I am God. Just like that. Wow! Let's go to this guy's church and get empty together. Now, the empty head they had grown weary of, after Dr. Wonderful trashed everything they believed, has become their ticket to divinity. And, a million devils abandoned their posts around the world and moved into Emerging Churches to fill emptied heads.
Am I over simplifying? I don't think so. I am 67, and I have spent my whole life watching Evangelicals empty their heads of everything they believed. This new thing is not a bit surprising. Millions of Evangelicals are tired of cheering for Bishop Tutu and worrying about killing seals and Climate Change. They are only too pleased to hear that they can make their own spirituality.
What next? These poor fools will become tired of just BEING God-- mark it down-- see if I am not right. They will start wanting to do god things.
Answer: You are God-- invent you own morality. Make your own ten commandments. Come to church naked. Whatever-- if you can imagine it, these new little gods will do it to make the most of godhead. There is a pastor in Hammond, Indiana in a Baptist church who is teaching husbands and wives how to seduce each other. Every filthy dog will come to the Emerging Church and transform it into Sodom.
This brings up another thought. If God is you, and six billion other humans on earth are gods too, why is not God also in the animals as well? So, maybe you should bring Fido to church next Sunday and see if he learns to vibrate with the masses of humans in this mighty "harmonic convergence." Orson Pratt of the Mormon Church, from his teaching that plants have spirits in The Seer, would suggest you bring your potted geranium to church next Sunday.
Finally, you need to know that Quantum Physics, which is heavily into mystic and esoteric notions, has married New Spirituality. The day will soon be with us when state craft, science, and religion will all be at the church house doing a little hum like Winnie the Pooh. Only, it will not be make believe-- it will be from the mind of Satan himself. More on Quantum Physics in Part Two of this study.
Now, if you think you can ignore this New Age invasion of Christendom, and it will not affect you, think again. If the whole human race is collectively god, then what are those Fundamental Baptists and Fundamental Muslims? They are stubborn heretics standing for a metanarrative that is limited, and they reject the universal godhead in humanity.
What is a metanarrative?
Here is a definition of a universal (New Age) metanarrative by a Mormon Brigham Young University philosopher. I believe it is about as "good" as it gets, and it comes from the right source, the devil's playground in Salt Lake City, Utah:
Metanarrative: A "grand theory," a narrative about narratives. A metanarrative is a story we tell about ourselves, what we do, and what is expected; it is a story that links our smaller stories together and gives us unity, social, psychological, and intellectual. Modernism includes several metanarratives, such as the story of progressive, global emancipation of people, minorities, etc.
The Bible believer has a narrative in the Word of God, but the Bible believer has a limited metanarrative. It consists of 66 books which are all there is from which to derive our metanarrative. We do not have a story about all stories which includes every story on earth. All stories outside the metanarrative of the Word of God are defined by the Word of God:
Luke 11:34 (KJV) The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.
All "light" from outside of the metanarrative of the Word of God is, in fact, darkness. The mongrel "light" has an origin:
2 Corinthians 11:13 (KJV) 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.
For a larger discussion of the metanarrative of the Word of God, read my article here.
It is no surprise to the Bible believer that there is a larger metanarrative than the Word of God, for there is a second story teller-- Satan.
Here is the metanarrative of the New Spirituality:
�The biblical story encompasses all of reality � north, south, east, west, past, present, future. It begins with the creation of all things and ends with the renewal of all things. In between it offers an interpretation of the meaning of cosmic history. It, therefore, makes a comprehensive claim; our stories, our reality must find a place in this story.� -- Michael Goheen
Rick Warren and the New Spirituality gurus are intentionally grabbing hold of more and more of the pagan world and Satanic "light" from the New Age. As they do so, they are more and more approved by the world. President Barak Obama, at his inauguration, asked Rick Warren to pray.
In the video posted above, did you hear Rick Warren combine the spiritual with the "public" and "private" sector. He keeps them distinct, which means that he is quite happy with a metanarrative which makes the Word of God only one third of the whole story. Also note that Muslims and Buddhists are part of his house of faith! He is serious about this, for he has joined the Counsel on Foreign Relations, which is a secret Globalist force above our own President.
This is highly instructive if we remember that Obama later canceled the National Day of Prayer, removed the American flag from his lapel, refused to salute the flag in public, tried to appoint a Maoist murderer to his cabinet, and has had Muslim prayer in the White House. Barak Obama feels a kindred spirit in Rick Warren because Warren has an inclusive metanarrative which welcomes Islam and Globalism. There is no other way to explain this.
The Bible believer's metanarrative has a beginning and an ending, and anything outside the metanarrative of the Word of God is mongrel rubbish. Here is a page that makes this very clear.
We have a final authority that defines who we are (sinners saved by Grace), and we are constantly trying to change US to fit the final authority of the narrative, the Word of God. We do not talk about our own righteousness and our oneness with the cosmos and the whole of humanity-- we have our mind on One Person-- The Lord Jesus Christ. Any oneness we feel with each other comes from conforming to Jesus Christ who then MAKES us one in himself.
So, the Fundamentalists, whether Muslim or Baptist, are standing for an external final revelation which wants total control of their minds, and they will not give up one jot of tittle to the Oneness god, the Global Village, for the sake of any perceived advantage. They are 180 degrees around from the whole Oneness paradigm shift of the Age of Aquarius and the Emergent Church and Robert Schuler's self love movement. The fact is that none of the world's "Fundamentalists," whether Muslim or Baptist, will ever come into a common metanarrative- that is impossible because their metanarrative is exclusinve, not inclusive, as is Rick Warren's.
Here is the end of the all inclusive metanarrative. On this page you see what happens when you grab too much-- you find that you don't even want a metanarrative, and you move on to anarchy. This needs to be discussed by Bible believers over coffee. Anarchy is rising as a serious philosophy, and Barak Obama and other world leaders and Globalists feed this by their arrogant disdain for accepted forms and standards-- the cry is "change."
It is useful to ask, how did Rick Warren become, "America's pastor?" The reason is because he carried forward, AND enlarged, the message of Norman Vincent Peale, Robert Schuler, and Billy Graham. These men, in their order, have been, "America's pastor." Billy Graham in particular enlarged the metanarrative drastically, and caused Bible believers to question his salvation, by saying......>
This man, ever so slowly, inhaled the incense of devils, the inclusive message of Robert Schuler, and has left us with the conclusion that he is either insane (starting around 1978), or he is possessed of a devil.
What shall be done with you intransigent Fundamentalists who refuse to join the inclusive fellowship of Billy Graham, Rick Warren, Robert Schuler, the New World Order, and Barak Obama? How do we eliminate you FREAKS at that house church down the street with your narrow limited metanarrative?
You and I, dear Bible believer, are on the bull's eye. We are the only thing in the way of the final alleged world peace and the larger alleged Gospel. Let me tell you something-- It all started that way didn't it? Was Jesus not targeted at once as a threat to the spiritual peace of Israel. And, who went after him, Caesar? Answer: No! The self-righteous religious elite were leading the attack on Jesus Christ all the way. You are in much more danger from Rick Warren than from Barak Obama, the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderburgers.
The Oneness world view of humanity, into which ALL Purpose Driven churches, the Emergent Church, and New Spirituality are flowing, must distinguish those who are not coming along. They are the ones who must be identified as preventing world peace. They bring Climate Change. They inspire greed and selfishness. They stand in the way of plurality, inclusion, and choice. They divide people from each other. They discriminate about many things, like sexual preference and all manner of alleged right and wrong issues.
Since the Oneness god is the whole of humanity, it is a huge body throbbing with life and good intentions. But, there is a disease in the Oneness body. The disease is made up of all of those who refuse to empty their minds and let in the divine light of self-godhead and cosmic Oneness. The disease refuses to be part of the whole body. So, the disease must be removed.
Where did I get the above? From my God given instincts after 67 years of sojourn in this wicked world.
I have been on the trail of the New Age Movement since 1976 when I pastored a church in the California desert 12 miles from Barstow where the first (I was told) New Age Center of Light Church was started. Before this one, all other New Age centers did not add the word "church." I was shocked. How could they dare think this trick would be taken seriously?
It was. The Barstow Ministerial Association welcomed the witch / minister of the New Age church into its membership. This whole thing goes way back to Babylon, and even Eden.
Genesis 3:4 (KJV) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Being God, and being enlightened, are the two foundational principles of the New Age movement. They are the foundation of Hinduism. And, the key to arriving at total enlightenment is to become 100% empty, which the Hindus call the Brahman mind. At this point, devils enter, and they take control. I have had to do warfare with them, and I know how it works.
Comment by a reader:
"And one of he multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to they disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not." - Mark 9:17
To Hindus and the New-Age theologians, this is the god-consciousness the boy was experiencing.
So, I KNOW there is a day coming, and soon, when the gurus like Rick Warren and the Emergent Church leaders will define Fundamentalists of various sorts as cancer. Cancer is the universal worldwide disease that frightens anyone who hears the word. And, how do you deal with Cancer? You cut it out. Now, I am not going to predict that all Fundamentalists, Muslim and Baptist, will be herded into concentration camps. No, they will be herded into oblivion.
1 Corinthians 4:13 (KJV) Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
They will be diagnosed as mentally ill, as was done to a good friend of mine who has been virtually criminalized by Federal shrinks and locked out of any Federal job and had his pilot's license revoked. His Christian zeal was a cancer to the Feds, and they don't need to lock him up. They simply define him as dangerous, and he will now have to find common labor from anyone who does not care what the Feds think. He has fallen from flight controller to auctioneer. That is a financial dead fall beyond belief. Mark it down, ye Christian yuppies-- be careful where you hire on. You may one day be flipping hamburgers for being a Bible believer.
Janet Reno, under Bill Clinton, defined Fundamental Christians as terrorists. That is how it is done. Who wants to be a terrorist? So, Bible believers will, step by step, reduce their footprint in this world. They will hang out together, but in the world, out there in the godness based Global Village, in day to day life, they will walk softly and say little of nothing about Christ and the Only Way defined by the Word of God. If they do live openly in this world, and if they do speak often about Christ, as they are commanded to do, they will be totally marginalized.
That is the concentration camp my friend. Many of us are already there. If we even speak to the Fundamental Baptist preacher asking why he does not teach the Word more and tell stories less, he will "church" us, that is, excommunicate us. If we speak up against sodomy in pubic, we will be accused of homophobia, and we can lose our job. If we talk about Jesus Christ, the only way to find peace with God, we will be asked to keep it to ourselves.
We will be encouraged to be spiritual-- everyone in the Oneness world is spiritual. But, we will become cancerous if our spirituality comes from ANYTHING outside of us, like the Word of God and the mind of Christ. If we appeal to a higher authority than the human mind, indeed, if we show we have made up our mind about anything, we will be cancer, and cancer has to be isolated from the rest of the godness body at all costs.
Elijah survived alone, and we may be called to be very much alone in this world at the end of the age. The alternative is to be part of God's vomit. More on that next.
This is the age of Laodiceans. All of Christendom has been spewed long ago. I believe God puked in about 1980. Here is what we are talking about:
Revelation 3:14 (KJV) And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
If you are in a Post Modern or Emergent Church or Purpose Driven Church, you are part of God's vomit. But, to those in that movement, you are cancer. They are happy being puke. What is noxious to God is perfume to them. They cannot tell the difference. Of the seven churches in Revelation, Chapters two and three, only the Laodicean church is seen with Christ ON THE OUTSIDE KNOCKING. The Emergent Church does NOT have Christ on the inside. They are damned-- they refuse to let Christ be the center. They are their own god.
I also recall Jesus Christ on the subject of "I am."
John 8:58 (KJV) Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
So, the Emergent Church, Purpose Driven Church, New Spirituality, and the whole geopolitical and religious union is now official. The Great Whore, the counterfeit of the Bride of Christ, has incorporated under the headship of Lucifer, and they shall indeed by like God-- they think. In the words of their aging guru from Garden Grove, California, Robert Schuler, "You have possibilities."
But, there are still a small remnant of Philadelphians left. There are always a handful of faithful left as each dispensation of God's times for human history ends. Anna, some shepherds, some wise men from the east, and old Simeon were the handful left when Jesus came in the fullness of time. Also, there were Joseph and Mary and Elizabeth and her husband.
Christ spoke to the Philadelphians:
Revelation 3:7 (KJV) And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Twice Christ says that these saints have kept his Word. He also says they hate the synagogue of Satan. That is the Emergent and Purpose Driven Church my friends. You have to hate it. You will be cast out of it if you take an open stand for the Word of God, especially if you insist on using only the King James Bible.
I will tell you how this strikes me-- I like it like that. My door is wide open to the world. The whole Oneness world of Satanic Church is my missionfield. I am surrounded. I have them right where I want them, and by the grace of God, I will not let one of them get away without getting in their face with the Word of God.
If you are in the Emergent Church, Purpose Driven Church, New Spirituality, The Shack religion, Bobby Schuler Possibility church, Narnia cult, etc, and if you have just gotten your tender feelings hurt, I have a word for you-- DEAL WITH IT.
The Traditional Service Syndrome-
This is for you old fuddy duddies who cannot leave the old ways and move on into the open mind. You are given a service just for you, but you are made to see that the real show, the big event, is the Praise and Worship service with the hopping around and the swaying sexy worship leaders and the glittering trap set. The trap set sits there silent during the "traditional service" to remind you that you are being left behind soon. Just hurry up and die please.
Well, to hell with this satanic counterfeit. Get out of that alleged church, and find some real Bible believer, even if it is only a group of ten people who worship the Lord in spirit and in truth with their minds regulated by the Word of God.
That is OK for Obama and the world. New and improved is fine for toothpaste. But, the old way and the old paths are not to be abandoned:
Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV) Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
Psalms 78:53 (KJV) And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.
God has set borders for everything in life. That includes your mind. There is a point beyond which you cannot go and please God. There are thoughts, there is science, there is technology, there is work, there is fun, which you CANNOT participate in. The border is set, and you may not go there. Of that tree thou mayest not eat.
Malachi 1:4 (KJV) Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the LORD hath indignation for ever.
If you build across the border, and if you are really born again, God will tear down what you built. You went over the border into the land of the flesh, Satan, and the Whore Church.
Speak often to one another-
Malachi 3:16 (KJV) Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
If you don't fear God, then I can understand why you are a timid mealie mouthed mouse for Jesus. But, if you fear God, then you will be speaking about the things from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21 openly and often with the people of God. You will do so before men, that is, before the wicked:
Luke 12:8 (KJV) Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:
If you want Jesus Christ talking about you before the Father and the angels, you better be talking your head off about him HERE.
Get in their face-
If we are the terrorists of the world, according to the US Federal Government, then we should terrorize them all the time. Speak up my friend. You have all the ammunition you need in the old black backed King Jimmy Bible. Give Barney Frank the news that he is a sodomite and worthy to be stoned. Give Obama the word that he is a pagan freak for following after Allah. Speak up, be pert and polite, but be in their face. Cancer hurts, so if we are the world's cancer, make it hurt until they scream in pain or repent. Let us no longer settle for a easy laid back zeal.
Philippians 4:4 (KJV) Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
Rejoice in the check out line, talk about Jesus anywhere, and let people around you know what you think of things which offend your moderation. If some alleged Bible believer suggests you tone it down, tell them that hell will be hot and loud, the Oneness mob may as well get used to the db level now.
Since the Oneness Global Village is made up of six billion empty heads, fill them with the Gospel. Stuff it in at every opportunity. Some of them may find it new and refreshing. The rest need the pain.
Since the mind must be emptied to successfully attain Oneness and godhead consciousness, It is imperative, and IT IS HAPPENING IN EMERGENT CHURCHES EVERYWHERE, that doctrine, creeds, and doctrinal statements must go. They are the old clutter which prevents the god in you from blooming into reality.
The very first doctrine the Emergent Church discards is Eschatology and Prophecy. Some isolated texts may be used by Emergent Church teachers out of context to make you a god, but they DO NOT talk about the return of Christ. Why should they- Christ is here in YOU. God has arrived the minute you realize who you are. And, the teaching of the Rapture and the Great Tribulation are deadly stuff to Emergent Church gurus, so they mock at them. See the II Peter text below.
The Oneness Global god is a now god, a god of present gratification. The Bible believer has a future view based on much prophetic literature in the Word of God, and he can let many things fall away. He does not need to help the world come together in one big happy family. That is impossible until Christ comes and does it. He does not have to fix the government. It is corrupt and will "wax worse and worse." He does not need to "get back to the US Constitution" because his only document has a forward look only. The Bible believer, with Paul, forgets those things which are behind.
If your church has an understanding that eschatology, the doctrine of future things, must be unmentioned so as not to offend anyone, you are in a church that is a candidate for Oneness teaching, a "now" church, not a church on its way into the prophetic absolute well defined future. Beware my friend. A church without a future look based on personal conviction is doomed. Even if you do not agree with me, I am much happier to fellowship with you if you at least have and eschatological apologetic. And, If your apologetic ends with gloom and doom, you have a mongrel eschatology, and you need to start over. The true Bible believer is supposed to be in a state of perpetual hope:
Titus 2:12 (KJV) Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
The Bible believe is a sober thinker, not an ecstatic frenzy filled diddle head. Why? Answer: He has a forward look that gives him a "blessed hope" instead of a timid maybe. If was the day of prophecy consciousness in the 1970s. Prophecy conferences were the fashion in Bible believing churches. Now, thirty years later, the following has happened courtesy of the Emergent Church and Rick Warren:
2 Peter 3:3 (KJV) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
The Emergent Church gurus openly scoff at anyone who has a blessed hope. But, many Bible believing churches have developed as gathering points for people fleeing from the Emergent Church. So, you have a group of folks who have five of six opinions on eschatology. They deal with this by no one talking about their "blessed hope."
What happens? Fear of the present stress sets in, and there is much talk about evil government and conspiracies. The cure for that is to talk about the coming again of Jesus Christ. If you have only the coming again of the Global Village, my friend, you are going to be one unhappy camper, and your kids will grow up to despise your morbid religion.
You need to understand also that Rick Warren and the New Spirituality teachers must not have a final interpretation of the future. This is because their world is in constant change. It is based on the Chaos Theory and Quantum Physics which teaches that the future is brought about by the viewer of the future. As he acts upon how HE sees the future, he creates the future. More on this in Quantum Physics in Part Two of this study. Suffice it to say that when you arrive in a fellowship that adamantly rejects propositional truth and biblical interpolations of the doctrine of future things, you may well be in an Emergent Church.
Lastly, you need to understand that the New Age has an eschatology- it is the Age of Aquarius and the Paradigm Shift. I believe it was Ruth Montgomery who said that Bible believers who believe that Christ will take them out before the Great Tribulation will be, as they expect, taken out by the Ascended Masters, and held in blissful abeyance. This is because, as she claims, they are not strong enough to ride out the rough aspects of the Paradigm Shift. Once the Age of Aquarius is well in place, the Bible believers will be brought back to fully participate is the glorious New Age. This New Age writer is very well received, and others have come up with patronizing explanations to marginalize Bible believers without calling for actually crucifying them.
So, if your fellowship does not talk about biblical end times doctrines, you have less of an eschatological apologetic then the New Age. Shame on you, you lazy brats. What is your hope anyway?
One more little matter is needed. Most people exposing the Emergent Church, New Spirituality, Purpose Driven Church, and Globalist mind control plans, do not talk about this.
The results of mind control (more on this in Part Two of this study) will be amazing. People will have their evil aspects removed technologically, and the whole world will melt into one big spiritual global day of peace. Bible believers will be 1) Marginalized for not joining the party and letting the System fix them, and they will 2) see that "fixed" people actually live a more peaceful life than they do. Christians will still struggle with sin and righteousness and judgment, while the New Age man with the "fixed" mind has no struggle- he just behaves himself all the time without even thinking about it.
This will cause Christians to come under terrible stress and pressure to conform to the System. As we discuss in Part Two of this study, a technological Christianity may well be invented which is void of temptation to sin, and the Bible believer will very sorely tempted to take the "fix," the vaccination of the mind. The Bible predicts a time like this:
Matthew 24:22 (KJV) And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Christ is warning the disciples of the conditions during the Great Tribulation for the Jews, not for Christians. This chapter has nothing to do with the Church and is pre-crucifixion teaching about Israel. But, the days leading up to the rapture of the Church will be loaded with tension for Bible believers, and this New Age religion and Globalist solutions will put the Bible believer under great pressure to conform.
If you have an eschatology that takes you through the Great Tribulation, you are a fool. You could not survive unless the days of the Great Tribulation were shortened. So, you will NOT go through the wrath of God, and you will be delivered from the mind bombardment of the Great Tribulation. The Jews in that era will flee into the wilderness where God protects them from this fierce attack on the human mind. But, there is NO teaching that the Church has anywhere to flee to, nor are they ever taught that they will come to the great day of ultimate deception.
So, just before the point where You and I could not resist, when the very air is filled with wave energy, and devils are running Christendom, top to bottom, AND just before the New Age Globalist governments of the world make the last slam down on humanity-- we are out of here.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (KJV) There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
1 Thessalonians 4:16 (KJV) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
We the Church, the true Bride of Christ will be out of here my friend. Everyone left behind in the profane demonized Purpose Driven Christendom will be left to be the servant of the Beast. Stop listening to these trembling voices of saints trying to figure out where to run to and set up self-sufficient hide outs.
So, you say, "What is the problem? Why panic?" The problem is the last few days, weeks, and years running up to the taking out of the Bride of Christ. It is very obvious that they will be very deadly, and you need to know your enemy and how to avoid becoming part of the problem instead of part of the solution to the problem. Furthermore; YOU WILL HAVE FRIENDS IN THE EMERGENT CHURCH. It is a monster rolling along like a monster sucking up gullible saints into its fold. YOU must warn them.
To You Pastors-
You are going to have to name names. Paul did. There is a fear of upsetting people that is disgusting.
Romans 16:17 (KJV) Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
Mark, in Greek, means the same thing as when the meat inspector marks a side of beef with his purple stamp. You need to mark them so well that, at least in your immediate acre, and on the Internet if you have a web page, no one who knows you will miss it-- EVER!
Samuel Johnson said that if you throw one rock at a target, you might hit it, and you might miss it. But if you keep throwing rocks at the target, you will be sure to hit it. You have to keep naming the same heretic over and over until people cannot miss the point.
Also, you need to get on Google and pump in the key words. Use the name of anyone you suspect along with New Age and Emergent Church buzz words. When you find solid evidence of complicity with the Whore Church, tell your people. Warn them also that if they watch worldly TV they will most certainly pick up New Age vocabulary. There was a time when the word "paradigm" was ONLY used by New Agers and the Sedona, Arizona mob. Now, any change in any area of life or even church things is a new paradigm. These are perilous times, sir, and you better get busy doing your home work.
One of the most deadly places where New Age notions are introduced is in the public school. You must warn parents to listen for New Age buzz words. These will later come up in Christendom, and if those kids are preconditioned by the school house, they will more easily accept New Spirituality rubbish. It is not enough to only keep your mind and mouth clean-- you need to warn parents.
Lastly, if you think the Emergent Church will not come to your people because you teach the Bible so well, you are dead wrong. We cannot walk in the world and not get our feet dirty. You MUST watch for this, and you must wash their feet.
2 Corinthians 7:1 (KJV) Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Trick Texts Used by New Spirituality and Emergent Church People-
Psalms 46:10 (KJV) Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
This verse is used to imply that I am to be still and gain knowledge by the act of being still. LIE! Verse 8-9 tell us what give knowledge:
Psalms 46:8 (KJV) Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
NEVER is our mind to be idle. I have not dealt with this elsewhere, so pay attention. The Emergent Church and New Spirituality people are very big on two skills- 1) Emptying you mind, and 2) Breathing. Together, these Hindu Yogic skills are developed. The mind is emptied of everything, including all propositional truth. That includes doctrine for sure. The "be still" trick is simply renamed as emptying the mind.
Nowhere in the Bible are we told that anyone emptied their mind. Even Jesus never is said to have turned off his mind. Our mind seems to shut off when we sleep, but sleep specialists believe that our thoughts while awake can partially control our mind while asleep. In any case, when we get still, or when we go out in the woods and "clear our mind," we are to ALWAYS be in control of our mind, and we are to choose godly things to occupy out mind.
Philippians 4:8 (KJV) Finally, brethren,
-whatsoever things are true,
-whatsoever things are honest,
-whatsoever things are just,
-whatsoever things are pure,
-whatsoever things are lovely,
-whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue, and
if there be any praise,
think on these things.
THINK! The whole Bible is a thinker's book. It is not a coasting book. It is not a funny book. It is not a novel. There are no pictures. The imagination of man, under the authority of the Holy Ghost, uses our imaginations to make mental pictures, but the Bible is a text book for life, not for emptying.
Here is another trick text used by the Emergent Church mob:
2 Peter 1:3 (KJV) According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
We are told that we are divine because this verse says so. BAH! There is a vast world of difference between "partaking" and "possessing." God is the ONLY one in the universe who possesses a divine nature, and that was ONLY shown to man through Jesus Christ:
Colossians 2:9 (KJV) For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
Christ is full of the Godhead. Each member of the Godhead if full of the Godhead. I partake- taste.
Psalms 34:8 (KJV) O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
