Personal Testimony regarding New Age/Occult/Evolution and the downward spiral
I thought I would share personal experience of my life up till I was saved in October and how this world got this way because of the lies from Satan. I apologize for any rambling and also am not promoting any of these satanic lies but just to share where I was. So armor on Ephesians 6:10-18
When I was a kid in school I attended a protestant church. Evolution being the main focus in schools. I did my best to stick to the Word but as a naïve child I was easily swayed by the "who says a day of creation to God didn't mean a million in human time?' All it takes for the bucket to start losing water is a crack in it. By not studying the Bible and proper science it eventually lead to a point where I questioned everything in it even Jesus Christ since after all "man" wrote the Bible.
What I was unaware of at the time was that little bit of doubt was all that was needed for Satan to shatter me.
Time goes by and I am eventually lead into yoga. With the chanting and controlled breathing of it what seems innocent on the outside is definitely not. What I "learned" in yoga was how to channel my "spirit energy" and focus and become "one with the universe" which after all was quite appeasing since now at this time I believe myself to be but an insignificant speck in it. Looking back I can see what I was doing was "ritualistic chanting" and channeling demons. People are eager to reject the idea of channeling demons because of the "peace" it brings but it's still poison in the carrot. I "learned" from this the need to "unite and love and tolerate" this world and live in peace.
After now my second indoctrination I went looking for the world's answers on the afterlife. What I found was enough to keep me away from the Truth. Quantum Mechanics, spirit energy, and a plethora of answers. Needless to say not one lead to Christ. In fact, they all made it clear that He was the wrong one. Allah, Buddha, Hinduism and "Jesus is one way to get to God" but not one way accepted that Jesus was the only way. What I learned from watching the news (religiously) was that "evangelicals" are nut jobs. I know the truth now but that's not were I was at.
When I started looking into New Age I started looking into Alistair Crowley and Thelma (New Age really is Thelma but mild). I'm not going to preach their messages but there are a couple of points I do want to make. Symbolism means everything and everything is meant to expose it to people frequently enough that eventually it becomes normal, accepted and even practiced. There were a couple of things that I realized while practicing it that made me start to look elsewhere.
1) Christians are absolutely not accepted. It baffled me how Muslims, Jewish Hindu and whatever were ok but destroying Christianity was a number one objective. A big part of it is internally by means of infiltration. That was something that now as we see "churches" preaching New Age ideology with some "Jesus on top" it's obvious.
2) If you go back and look at what a lot of some of the nastiest people in history believed New Age is at the center. Hitler believed in all of the above and used propaganda to weaken his people and get them on board. If not force was authorized.
Those two things had me start rethinking my approach about the Bible. The reason I point out the two above is because God showed Himself to me when I was seeking Him how these two things are leading us to the Revelation One World Religion and the antichrist WILL use force to demand worship.
The other reason I bring this up is recently there has been a lot of talk and buzz regarding Lady Gaga and her Super Bowl performance. One of the things I implore people to do is look at how music is heavily focused on
1) "Star child" themes
2) animalistic behavior (violence, sexual immorality and doing what YOU want)
3) love and tolerance
You definitely need to research and look into what an artist believes in and the lyrical content of a song. Because of the world's thirsting for "enlightenment" their ears get tickled when they say god in a song. A look into their lyrics/personal life easily will show whom most of them mean. There are now "Christian" churches who even preach becoming one with god and those churches are bigger than Biblically sound churches.
This post may have little relevance to long time members but to Lurkers or anyone who stumbles upon it maybe it will help. All the answers ARE in the Bible. There is more than enough science to back up and reasonably support it. Cling to your Bible. If God is with us no one can be against us!
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
