The last two days I can't get these words out of my mind. Each time I try to move my mind and heart away from them they come back more strongly. I've been pondering why the Lord has been sinking these words into my heart over and over. What comes to me is that, worldwide, the spiritual situation has become so dire that it borders on emergency. I think that this is why I [and others] keep getting 911 warnings. The truth is people are deceiving themselves about the condition of the world and our country. Without God, there is no true peace; deep interior peace comes from God alone. Can we look around and honestly say that the people of our world have turned their faces toward Our Lord?
You walk into bookstores and you see so many new age books. We are surrounded by false prophets. Wolves in sheep's clothing. Their words sound pleasing to the ear, especially to those who are hungering spiritually. " Everyone is fine. There is no such thing as sin. There is no hell. Jesus was an ascended master." An ascended master? What the heck is an ascended master?!! Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God! The Savior of the world ...whether one is aware of this fact or not. Some New Age followers say that Christians are " unenlightened" and that their minds have not yet been opened to the truth. I even heard a celebrity say that Christians are the biggest problem in this country. We are narrow-minded. We don't think it's okay to murder babies and store them in glass jars or throw them in the trash.
"They say to those who despise the word of the Lord,
'Peace shall be yours' ;
And to everyone who walks in hardness
'No evil shall overtake you.'
The most dangerous "religion" in the world is New Age. Why they call it New Age, I'll never know. It's been around in various forms for hundreds of years.Why do I call it the most dangerous? Because many people are drawn in by the mixture of truth and lies that the New Age proclaims. It is Satan's greatest deceit, yet. In many ways it is more dangerous than out and out Satanism because it draws one in slowly and bit by bit draws people away from God. It places the focus on self. Self-worship. Isn't that the very same thing that caused the fall of Lucifer? Pride. At least those who practice Satanism know that they are doing it, the poor New Agers have no clue that they are working for Lucifer who disguises himself as an angel of light.
I went into a bookstore one day and picked up a book. I didn't even have a chance to open the cover before I heard, "Put it back!" I immediately put the book back on the shelf. The book was by someone called Eckhart Tolle. This happened to me another time at the same store, I picked up a book and again heard,"Put it back!" This one was called "The Secret" or something like that. I had vaguely heard of the book and was curious as to why it was a bestseller. I put it back, though. I guess there's really no great secret anyway. It's simple really:
"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6
