“I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God.” (Philippians 1:9-22, NLT)
So I’ve been wanting to address this for some time now because every time I sign into YouTube, somebody gotta “testimony” of how Jesus delivered them from the new age. And I’m not saying that God isn’t saving people, I’m just saying that the majority of these people are delusional.
Many false Christs have arrived (especially in our minds!) so if you’re coming out of the new age, I beseech you to truly examine yourselves and the God you’ve come to know.
You see, I’ve studied witchcraft in the past so I know (personally!) all the demons and haughty mindsets that come with that. And if we can just be honest, the reason we got into all of that in the first place was because we wanted to play God and try to create an escape from our mediocre lives (or past and present traumas). But how many of you know that wanting to be like God was satan’s sin (and what also caused the fall of man!). It’s like an addiction. Once you’ve dabbled in the occult for some years (unless you’re completely of the devil) you’re going to want something better and more powerful. And I believe that this is how many of you ended up “coming to Christ”. You heard a false gospel of “love” aka tolerance and now you think you’re riding off into the sunset with the POWER of the holy spirit. But in reality, you’re still not HOLY (set apart from the world), now you’re just an intellect or a “spiritual” person that goes to church. And I’m not trying to rain on your parade but going to church and reading the bible with a carnal mind does not make you a follower of Jesus Christ. Neither does letting Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyers make a merchandise of you!
So what am I saying? What am I suggesting to you? I’m telling you to examine yourself because YOU could be a false convert. And don’t be offended and all in your feelings about this. I was a false convert from 2012 to 2016ish!
Witchcraft has infiltrated the church because church people don’t truly know or fear the Lord. We have created God (in our minds) to be who we want (and FEEL) Him to be. That’s why we’re steadily attempting to “sanctify” profane things. We wanna slap a “Christian” label on something bad as if that declares it holy (Christian rap, Christian yoga, Christian witches etc.). But God ALONE has the authority to declare what is holy and what is not. And He already established all of that. He doesn’t change with the culture! And this goes for all of us. Because witchcraft isn’t always blatant. Just rebelling against the ways and commands of the Lord in general is considered witchcraft.
So Samuel said: “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.” ( 1 Samuel 15:22-23, NKJV)
So let us learn a lesson from King Saul, just simply learn and obey the ways and commands of the Lord. If He will reject our thoughtful sacrifices then we know that He is still not accepting strange fires (please read). Don’t follow people or even your own heart (which the bible says is deceitful and wicked above all else—Jeremiah 17:9) into worshiping God (or yourself!) however you want. Read the bible and take it literal. Don’t rely on the demonic theologian’s and ungodly scholar’s interpretations. PRAY to be filled with the holy ghost. He will teach you everything you need to know ( 1 John 2:26) and those apart of the true body of Christ will edify and confirm what He’s already told you. The commentary (and the average church!) is full of vain imaginations of man. Where do you think all of these self serving attitudes and false doctrines are coming from?
“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ.” (Colossians 2:8, AMP)
So, if you’re serious about worshiping God (not only in “spirit” but IN TRUTH!) and being a follower of Jesus Christ, I pray you take heed to what I’m saying. May the Lord be
with IN you all.
With love, Brandi
