The false church is demon filled

Here is a very powerful sermon by Pastor David Wilkerson overlaid with video footage of the demonic deception that has entered the modern church. Pastor Wilkerson is very much led of the Spirit as he calls out the wolves in sheep clothing who masquerade as Christians with an apparent message from God the Spirit. Instead they are demon-filled deceivers of weak minded followers, who probably never cracked open a Bible to see what the truth really is.

This is well worth watching.

The Word of Faith ministries with their health and wealth gospel is one of the devil’s best deceptions on the church. Don’t be misled. Demonic possession is not the same as being filled with the Holy Spirit.

And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Matthew 24:11

The deception is now very great in the organisations that call themselves churches of God. But they are grossly deceived. Their practices are much like those that we see in the Occult and New Age religions.

No wonder Jesus Christ said of them:

I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.

Matthew 7:23

He did not “know” them because they were not saved/born-again. He did not have close intimate fellowship with them. They are false teachers and wolves hiding among the sheep. Out of their own mouths they say they have a message from Satan.

Wake up people! Much more deception is coming! And very soon! Read your Bibles, especially the book of the Revelation.

Lupus Occultus: The Paganised Christianity of C.S. Lewis

by Jeremy James

cslewis

C S Lewis is well known among born-again Christians as a ‘Christian’ writer, someone whose inclusive religious viewpoint is of particular relevance to the world we live in today. I would hope to show that this perception of Lewis is not only gravely mistaken but that it arose through deliberate misdirection on the part of Lewis himself.

In 2008, after 33 years as an active participant in the New Age movement, I finally came to Christ. As I found my feet and met with other born-again Christians, I discovered that many Evangelicals, as well as Christians the world over, were keen readers of C S Lewis. They revered him as a great Christian author and apologist for true, Bible-believing Christianity. Frankly, this was a great surprise to me because, as a longtime practitioner of the New Age, I knew what C S Lewis was ‘really’ teaching.

Anyone with a deep familiarity with New Age philosophy, or with a grounding in Theosophy or the occult generally, knows that C S Lewis was about as Christian as the Dalai Lama. Religious, yes. Philosophical, yes. But Christian? Never.

Ben Hartnett

written by Ben Hartnett

For those of you who don’t already know me, my name is Ben. I’m just going to take a few minutes to share my testimony. I’m hoping that it will really inspire and encourage you on your walk with Christ, and if you’re not currently a believer I want to reassure you that God is real, He loves you and if you give Him a chance He will reveal Himself to you. Jesus said,

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him. (Revelations 3:20)

One thing I find so amazing about the Bible is how the stories, lessons, and parables taught, apply to so many peoples lives in so many different situations. They inspire us, comfort us during times of suffering, give us hope for the future and teach us how to live truly fulfilled lives in relationship with God. The Bible is a personal love letter authored by God and addressed to you.

Delusions of Reprieve

Ryan12by Ryan Eamer

I wrote the following piece called Delusions of Reprieve in late 2008 in a mental hospital in Subiaco, Western Australia. The place served as a revolving door for me from 2007 through to 2013, sometimes seeing me admitted for months at a time. At this stage the only diagnosis of my condition was major depressive disorder with chronic insomnia. Ironically, I wrote this piece sitting up in bed on my laptop at 4 am.

A Letter to a New Age mother

Dear Mum

The [New Age related] news clipping you sent me claiming that we, humans, are all gods I believe is utterly deceptive and of Satan. Though, what the author states is not really anything new. It is very ancient. The idea started in the Garden of Eden when the Devil tempted Adam and Eve, telling them that they could become as gods, knowing good and evil. Read Genesis chapters 2 & 3.

It is a lie of the Devil that says “you are god” (Genesis 3:5) or “god is in you”. That is not so. God is extant to His creation. We are part of His creation. Can the created say to the Creator ‘we are gods’? No, but that is the lie of the Devil.

Jesus called the Devil a liar from the beginning of time.

You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44, KJVER)
