The Bible tells us that the end is coming. We will be entering a period of the Tribulation, lasting seven years and will be the worst time this earth and the people on it will have ever experienced! America is not going to be turned around. Jonathan Cahn has nothing new to tell us that God has not already revealed. Unfortunately, Cahn is making it appear as though it’s new because he is using eisogesis (reading into Scripture) to gain new meaning. It’s absurd and the fact that so many are taken in by it tells us the sorry state of affairs within Christendom today when people will run out and buy and then devour Cahn’s books, but the Bible remains on the shelf!
There is nothing wrong with helping people walk again or using technology to fix things in people that are broken so they can live the remainder of their lives with fewer problems and in better health. The problem is when transhumanism is looked at to become the progenitor of “eternal life.” This is completely opposed to God’s created order. He does not want us to live forever physically as fallen individuals. This is why death occurs. It is through death that those who are saved will have new bodies that will be incorruptible. Paul tells us as much in 1 Corinthians 15:53, when he says, “For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
I have to constantly check my heart and mind. It is so terribly easy some times to “hate” the sinner instead of the sin. I will admit it. I am not Jesus and I know that I do not love as He loved. Yes, He loved with words, but He also loved with actions and the way in which He responded to people after they treated Him like He was a piece of manure on the ground. I have to ask myself, how would I respond in such a situation? Do I love the lost enough to sincerely ask God to blot my name out of the book of life?
The secret doctrine is something that is said to bind all religious ideologies together in a true mystical union and this secret is a reflection of the perfect essence of all thought in the spiritual realm. Of course, what we learn as we get deeper into it is that it is really a spiritual type of socialism or communism, where the individual doesn’t matter. What matters is the spiritual “collective” because that’s where all secret doctrine is said to lead.
But, as Lighthouse Trails has pointed out, the real problem with tonight’s event may well have to do with New Ager Roma Downey. Most will remember Downey as being connected to the docudrama for The History Channel, The Bible. Most may not be aware that Roma (along with husband, Mark Burnett) are heavily involved in New Age mysticism, in spite of calling themselves Christians. They seem to equate to people like Eckhardt Tolle, Neale Donald Walsch, Tony Robbins, and too many others to name here. Downey has endorsed books that fall squarely into the New Age category. Her theology is suspect only because of the company she keeps and her willingness to endorse books/authors who are not within Christian circles, but who are involved in mystical ones.
Obama is shown in a different light from Bush. Obama wears a mortar board and wears white gloves. The mortar board is there to give the illusion that President Obama is an intellectual, someone who is smart enough to take this country out of its economic depression. We know this is only an illusion that President Obama is far different from George W. Bush because at one point, Obama looks directly at the audience and gives a huge wink with a smile.
One of the main goals of yoga is to help initiates open their Third Eye or Pineal Gland, which resides deep within the brain. Drugs can do this. Sodomy can do this. Magick, spells, and incantations can do this. Yoga can also do this, but how?
