New Age Techniques 2
Read Leviticus 19:31, Deteronomy 2:1-5
I know I have repeated some of the verses, but that is going to cement them in your mind! This stuff has been going on since the beginning of time. Man has always wanted to delve into the hereafter and spirit world, but God says to leave it alone! Look at Isaiah 47:9-13, Acts 8:9-11, 13:6-12, 16:16-18, & Revelation 21:8. It’s been around forever and will be until the end of the world. It will also be a great part of what the antichrist will do (see Revelation 13:14-15 & 20:9). Now more of the new-age techniques and sorcery. Read Psalm 58:3.
Out of Body Projection. This guide takes the last one further. Look back at it (Guided Imagery). This involves leaving the body mentally or spiritually and traveling to other places. It is also called “astral projection and/or distant viewing.” DO NOT lose sight of the increasing power of evil spirits in all of this as this progresses. Foothold, stronghold, then a kingdom! You MUST see that!
Channeling. (NOT on the TV, silly) This is nothing less than what got Saul killed (see 1Samuel 28.) It is speaking with the dead. Read Deuteronomy 18:11 & 1Samuel 28:11-14. Necromancer– one who claims to be able to raise and speak to the dead. Look at 1Samuel 28:7. WHERE was this witch from? Endor. Remember the TV show Bewitched? Remember, Samantha’s mother? Her name on TV was Endora. Coincidence? Remember I Dream of Genie? In Arabia, they believed, and may still, in spirits called “Jenns.” We call them Genies. They could be contained in containers like… bottles and summoned to grant favors and wishes. My, my… nothing new under the sun, just different names! Let me give you some other words. See Isaiah 2:6, Daniel 2:27, 5:7, Micah 5:12, & Acts 16:16 again. Look at Deuteronomy 18:10, 2Kings 17:17, 21:6, & Revelation 18:28. See also Exodus 22:18. Don’t forget 2Thessolonians 2:9, which speaks of the antichrist in the end.
Meditation. This involves the filling of the mind with their material. Yogic style meditation is big. Watch for it in TV commercials where a woman is sitting or standing with her arms and hands in a special position or hands on her knees, with her fingers in a circle, with her eyes closed. This is emptying and meditation. Hellywood is deep into this witchcraft stuff! It is like a hypnotic state or altered state of consciousness through repetition of a mantra (or words) and focusing the mind on a picture or image. TV anyone? Hypnosis is another one they use. Do we know Psalm 1 as well as we should? Practice it? Again, NOTE the progression of spirits!
Transference. The transference of spiritual energy by the laying on of hands or massage. “Reiki” is called “The Healing Touch.” Is said to involve the transference of “life force energy.” This is not a joke, but I wonder about these faith healers on TV here! I have a friend that experimented one time and went to one of the meetings of one, and he actually got touched on the shoulder by this man, and he said it actually knocked him down and felt like electricity going through him. But, O, he quoted the Bible… so can Satan! He did in the wilderness to Jesus. Better leave that stuff alone folks!!!
Regression Therapy. The practice of dredging up supposed events from past lives or times to understand, heal, and make the present better. O, I want to run right out and try this one, how about you? NOT! This is done by mental imagery, hypnotism, and spirit guides. Read Philippians 3:13.
Anchoring. Not sure if this is done on a ship or not. Ty Robbins does this one. It anchors one to a past positive experience to access the positive emotions of the experience, and create success in the now, and future. This stuff is HUGE in big corporations. They send their top people to these seminars all the time and pay BIG money. (Look at Ezekiel 28:12-19. This passage is about Lucifer/Satan.)
Interfaith Dialogue. Here we get into the acceptance of other religions, not the least of which is eastern Mysticism. Hinduism, Buddhism, and pantheism. The Pope is big into this stuff and has been for decades. Will not all worship the beast in the end? How will this all come about? We’re studying the greater part of it here! The UN is HUUUGE in this stuff. No thanks. THEIR Jesus is not MY Jesus! Galatians 1:8-9 again.
Community Building. Bonding people together into the New Age communities. A process of breaking down the barriers between people and emphasizing unity, regardless of religion or culture (a progression of the last one).. and it is opposed to individualism. This one is the giant step to no international borders or national autonomy, folks! The UN again…. and Washington, D.C. (District of Communists/Criminals) This requires a “non-judgmental attitude, acceptance of all views of life as legitimate, and the elimination of the Word of God, though they don’t come right out and say that. Read Psalm 119:66, 119:121, & Proverbs 1:1-3 & 2:1-9. See judgment between right and wrong, good and evil, in there anywhere? Not in the New Age! O, the Utopian lies in New Age. Gag me with a soup spoon, please.
ALL of the New Age is anti-God, anti-christ, and anti-Bible. All of it. NOTHING in it leads to a relationship with Jesus Christ and NONE of it leads to salvation from the penalty of sin for… there IS no sin in New Age. New Age beliefs will do away with sin and evil and bad in this world…. they say. If we only get in touch with the universal life force, and energy, go back to positive experiences of our past and bring them into the now. Wrong!
It is ALL of the devil, and what a beautiful package it is in, to those who are lost. It is all a repackaging of the Chaldean/Babylonian mystic religion. It is the Chaldean false wisdom that sounds good to the world. It is, in fact, a damnable heresy, that damns lost people to hell. Period. PLEASE be on the lookout for it. It is now more than subtle. It is brazen and overt. Hellywood is vomiting it out all over TV, and it is in our universities, businesses, and government. And, Oh yes, it is all over the UN plans for the world… SOON! The giga-wealthy are deep into it, and they control things powerfully!
I want you to read some passages here and see them in stark contrast to the New Age teachings, and in fact, as a light ON such false teaching. Romans 12:1-2, 1Corinthians 1:20-21, Galatians 1:1-4, 1John 4:1-4, and I want you to finish with 2Corinthians 4:3-4.
The New Age is powerful, but God is more. Let’s commit ourselves to witnessing, even if we are timid, or afraid. Pass out tracts & stand up for Jesus!
