Spiritual Awareness 101

I don’t even know where to begin with this one.

There is a new religion in the world, a one-world religion, and it is called Spiritual Awareness (otherwise known as New Age).

I feel it necessary to speak on this subject for a number of resons, not the least of which is to alert Christians to its reality. I also feel it has been so largely embraced that there is little information to counter its force in the world at this point; therefore it is expedient to at least try to make people aware of the lie. Its true that many won’t listen, I can’t really blame them. Without an understanding of Scripture its hard to know just why Christianity should be considered as relevant when compared with the plenitude of world religions. Christians are regarded as ignorant fundamentalists because they believe the Bible, and because they refer to it in debate considering it at all times to be valid. I’ve had people say I was ignorant for quoting Scripture. In reality the ignorant betray themselves, for not only have I researched a variety of spiritual systems myself, but I have also been an enemy of God and a destroyer of the Light.

I have wearied myself with war against God, and I have found all systems which I researched to be found lacking, every one of them. Don’t even say that “its because you weren’t looking into the right systems,” nor say “all systems lead to the same truth; if you didn’t achieve results its because you didn’t work at it long/hard enough.” If you say these things you are in ignorance of that which you speak, for you cannot know my struggle. First of all, it is interesting that in all other systems of belief, or philosophy, the divine quality is experienced through the amount of “work” you put into it. With Christ its the exact opposite: we can’t do anything to earn it, or work our way up to it. All we can do is have faith on Him. (We’re called ignorant for doing that, btw.)

So, what is Spiritual Awareness/New Age? These days people will tell you that it doesn’t exist, but it does, don’t let them fool you (and don’t fool yourself). New Age is a worldwide movement whose roots can be traced and verified. The reason why people don’t hear about it by that specific term too much these days is because… its everywhere. Everywhere you look, there is New Age. I sound like a paranoid lunatic, but its true. New Age has seeped its way into everything: entertainment, media, science and medicine, and every aspect of society. People from all walks of life, rich and poor, are into transcendental meditation, kundalini yoga, astral travel, Self-programming techniques, Qabbalah, and as many other sorts of occult activities as there are to individuals to create and suit them. A good definition of New Age is this quote, taken from another website which shall be listed at the end of the article:

“The term [New Age] itself may indeed be fairly recent but the actual practices and beliefs involved are thousands of years old. For instance, the slave girl mentioned in Acts 16 was in effect a New Ager. The term itself was taken from astrology making reference to the Aquarian age in which humanity is supposedly going to realize its inner divinity. Hence, anyone who engages in these mystical practices is associated with this view, even though they may have lived centuries ago. It’s not the term; it’s the practices that are at issue here.”

(Lighthouse Trails Research Project)

New Age has most definitely infiltrated Christianity, how do you think we got the DaVinci Code and “Holy Blood, Holy Grail?” It might be hard for people of this generation to see the problem with syncretism, or with convergence of belief. To the modern mind this is something to be embraced, it is a deviation from traditions which have become obsolete in this day and age. Many do not see the harm in picking and choosing the intricacies of their belief-systems. “I just use what works for me,” is a common line. Believe me, I’ve heard it from more than one person, the exact same line. That it doesn’t really work for them never seems to dawn on them. They are as the Scripture says: “…ever gaining knowledge, but unable to come to the knowledge of the truth.” God opens the door for them, but instead of walking through it, they struggle to close the door again. If it really worked for you, then there would be no need for you to modify it. There would be no need for fluidity; instead, they dictate endlessly how they despise “fixed doctrine.” Indeed, their litanies against fixed doctrines have fixed their doctrines. Thier sermons against stasis have made them stagnant.

The Bible warns against the emergence of the One Religion, just as it tells of everything that we are experienceing in our present day. The origins of New Age are spoken of in the book of Genesis, chapter 3, verse 5 (Gen. 3:5). The serpent came to seduce Eve, and told her that she would be like God if she would eat of the tree from which God had specifically told them not to eat. (How tragic it is that many people now know this story through New Age texts that tell erroneous versions of the account in order to promote their own New Age agenda’s.) Ever since the beginning, the Enemy has been devising and perpetuating his own spiritual plan in order to imitate (and outdo) God’s plan of salvation. In all the systems I have researched i have noticed that they all, each one of them, have at their heart the same fundamental concept. This collection of doctrines which forms the core of every world religion is purely New Age-based; that is to say, every system of belief except for  Christianity.

Spiritual Awareness (a term which I use synonymously with “New Age”) is a subject which all Christians should familiarize themselves with. A little research on the subject just proves that it is being trumpeted everywhere, and set up as the New-World Religion. This religious system, which was prophesied in the Bible, involves two major facets: the Left and Right-Hand schools of thought. These are basically two sides of the same New Age coin, as they both seem to have the same goal in mind while achieving it from different ends. This delusion further insinuates their belief that all paths ultimately lead to the same destination (a Monist philosophy in itself, correct me if I’m wrong).

Every Christian should be aware of the Spiritual Awareness Movement, of the threat it poses to each individual believer in Jesus Christ, and of its widespread emergence in the world (not to mention its global acceptance by the majority of the population, even Christians). Every occult practitioner (this means YOU), every witch, every sorcerer, every magician, tarot reader, guru, religious leader, astrologer, etc. (ad nauseam) is influenced by the same New Age spectrum of philosophy. The powers behind these practices, while undeniable, are said by the Bible to be the work of demons. It does not say this for the same reason you think. It says this because God wanted us to know in advance what we would be dealing with in the last days. All we had to do was read His Word to know about it, but the devil then devised countless methods to invalidate Scripture, and make it increasingly insignificant in the hearts of humanity. Nowadays, people will do anything in their power to keep from reading a Bible. Myself included. I’d rather sit here and preach than read my Bible. I’d rather speak the message of Christ than read the Word of Christ. Does it make sense to do that? No, it doesn’t. At the same time, it doesn’t make sense to form an opinion on a book you’ve never read before. Does it? New Age books love to talk about the Bible, about its apparent “flaws and contradictions.” Hogwash, these books are merely trying to outdo the truth of Scripture. Give them an “E” for “effort?” I’d rather give them an “F” for “fu… *Oooh, I’ll be nice*

They’ll never be able to outdo Scripture, and the only reason they try is because they think they can be God, or at least a better God than God Himself. They declare the Universe to be God, but they don’t acknowledge the God that created the Universe. They say that Man is a god, but they refuse to acknowledge the God who created Mankind. The Bible talks about this in the second Chapter of Romans, or thereabouts (I need to read my Bible!!! See my point?).

If you really want to know the truth, then ask God to show you in the name of Jesus Christ. He will show you the truth. If you want to stay floating around in the energy of your own imagination, then talk to your “Higher Self” or whatever entities you end up conversing with. (Side Note: Why is it that every time someone has a mystical experience, the revelation is always the same? Why is it always about the Self becoming a god, or realizing ones own (non-existent) Self-Divinity, or that God is a Universal Consciousness of Cosmic Awareness? Essentially these are all the same thought in different (increasingly vague) terms. Why doesn’t anybody question these entities or the validity of their statements? Why is everything they say takn at face value? (And we, as Christians, are criticized for taking the Bible literally? At face value?) Why doesn’t anybody have the guts to question their own feelings? They stupidly trust themselves, as if they could possibly know what is best for them. The only one who knows what is best for any of us is God, and the sooner we realize that, the sooner we can be healed. God wants us to question everything. Read your Bibles, have some balls! Geez.)

In conclusion, I hope that my ramblings are structured enough to communicate the urgency I feel about these matters. I want, above all, to relate the message of Christ, and the urgency I feel that all should turn their hearts to Him. If you’d like to know more about giving your life to Jesus Christ, click on the “Altar Call” tab up above, or talk to a church representative.

In the West, church attendance is at an all-time low; this is true. Why not go against the grain? Why not stand up for Christ, and refuse the trend of New Age? It won’t win you any popularity points, thats for sure, but doing the right thing never did.

Keep watching Jerusalem, Beloved!

Maranatha!

Stand Strong Warriors!

I’m the last person who should be preaching, or teaching the word of Christ. I’m a hypocritical, backsliding, evil person who only wants the desire of his own heart. I’ve done things which are horrible, I’ve treated people horribly, and I’ve murdered countless numbers of people (murder in thought is still murder, only separable by a single physical act), I’ve even wanted to, and tried to, murder myself. I’ve been a spiritual prostitute for over 10 years; I was born a spiritual prostitute. I’ve transcended this reality into darkened realms which many are fortunate enough to have not experienced in any measure; I contemplated on their depths, and I was allowed to return. From my state of madness, I was allowed to return.

I was allowed to return for one reason and one reason only: to proclaim (from an informed perspective) that God truly exists, and that there is One God, One Lord who is master of all Universal Reality (both Subjective and Objective): He is the Lord Jesus Christ.

This single statement will make many fall. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ, for He is merciful, and His ways are wholly unable to be fathomed! May He return soon, He is already at the door! Prepare yourselves for the things which are about to take place. Consider your place before God, and turn to Him again (or for the first time). Your life and the lives of those you love could depend on it!

It is unfortunate for me, being of evil nature, to begin a thesis that way, whether here in cyberspace or otherwise, for speaking such things will surely not bring me any popularity. Luckily, I am not looking for popularity, nor would I know where to look for it. As I said before, I am a nobody and will a nobody remain, perhaps until my dying day, I know not. Such things are the knowledge of God, not my knowledge. It’s not for me to care about. What my duty is, however, is to make sure that I begin to proclaim the truth from which I’ve been running.

Like many today, I’ve searched for The Truth everywhere. Like many people today I’ve tried to look anywhere I could except at the Bible; I would always leave that for a last resort. I was amazed when I finally made myself read a few books of the Bible (initially I began to read it, over ten years ago, for the purpose of “knowing my enemy,” in order to better fight against Christianity). I couldn’t believe that people were fighting against words which were so wise. At that point in my search for truth the Bible was already vastly superior to anything else I had looked into previously. I know far more about the dark side of humanity now than I did before, largely because I always broke my covenant with Jesus Christ (in addition to the lovely qualities listed above, I am also an oath-breaker). Because of the desire of my heart, I would always turn from Christ in order to attain it. That I never did didn’t seem to matter to me, I admit in hindsight my strategy for life was quite ill-founded indeed. I even quit school in order to give my life over to study of the occult. Ten years later I can say that it was a bad choice, but thats an entirely different story.

The point is, I’ve done my research. I’ve worked through spiritual systems, figuring out their individual discrepancies in a matter of months, gleaning the same amounts of information which would normally take most people years of devout practice. I’m no smarter than the next person, my IQ isn’t that grand (I guess, never had a test), but still, I was able to understand spiritual and philosophical systems sometimes better and more intricately than others who had been involved with them for years. To take it a step further, I was (in each case) able to differentiate the errors from truth, and given the ability to understand why the systems in question were not adequate; why they didn’t work for me, and why they only worked in part for anyone else.

All I can say is: GOD.

Its all Him. He allowed me to look in and see the depths of Hell, and I have been allowed to remain myself long enough to yet be able to understand. It’s very difficult to relate in human terms the type of battle that has been going on, all around me, for years, every day and night, as I slept, as I did whatever it is that I do. The battle was raging on all sides of me, as it rages on around each one of us. Unfortunately, some of us are like sitting ducks and the Enemy of our Souls just… picks us off like a sniper on the hillside. Sometimes, we’re easy prey. If you’ve read this far, I implore you to consider Jesus Christ before its too late.

I’ve started this web-log because I need to say these things and have no idea where, or how… Not to mention my unworthiness. The fact that I am preaching seems, at least to me, a true reflection of all the problems with christianity today. I’m the last person that should be asking the tough questions, viewing the most controversial aspects of the spiritual genocide, vocally fighting for thr truth of the Bible, and proclaiming the light of Christ to the world: I do it because I don’t see others doing it, and I mean to do it. You’re blood will NOT be on my hands, do you understand me? I’ve already screwed my life up enough without continuing to do so by ignoring the call of the Lord. He says: “PREACH.”

In tears, I say: “Yes, Lord.”

Judge me. Get lulz off me. Hate me. Kill me. Nothing matters except that you turn to God before its too late. Do it now, while you still have a chance!

Stand strong warriors, when they suround you!

Stand strong when they assault you!

Stand strong and fortify the gates!

Stand strong and proclaim the Word!

Stand strong for peace!

Stand strong for honour!

Stand strong for Christ, all you warriors, in the face of the Godless!

God is with us. Jesus is Lord!

They are rebuilding the Temple! When it is built I want to go there, so I can worship the God of Israel!

(in tears)

I love you all, my brothers and sisters.

With Gods grace and mercy, you can expect more from me.

Maranatha!
