God in My Everything?

The more we begin to rely on our emotions and how we feel about something, the less likely we are going to look to God’s Word as the final and absolute authority for life and practice as Christians. This appears to be what Ken Shigematsu (and too many others to count), is doing. His books attempt to draw people away from the truth of the cross and Scripture into the arena of “feelz” using monastic rituals to get us there. He wants us to embrace the type of rituals that many ancient orders used for the express purpose of getting closer to God. Yet, these things are not in Scripture so we should be very concerned.

Reading Through the Bible

It is important to look at your Bible reading time each day as an opportunity to learn more about our God, Creator, and Savior. Don’t use this time to “study” the Bible. Use it to read it, to get the flow of how the Bible moves. If you come to a passage that confuses you, this is where good commentaries come in. You want to get either good, quality “devotional” commentaries or the more “academic” commentaries. The former will often apply passages to our lives for us, connecting them with the truth of the biblical text. The latter is written by scholars who delve often quite deeply into the original languages. This is good, but it might actually slow you down quite a bit. My suggestion for those starting out is to reach for the devotional commentaries written by people like Warren Wiersbe, J. Vernon McGee and even John MacArthur. I have a library full of academic commentaries as well as devotional ones. They both help when I’m actually involved in studying certain books of the Bible. Dr. Thomas Constable is another great author whose commentaries, while delving into the original languages, provides good insight and background on the Bible.

Deception in the Church

Deception in the Church is a book that many will gain insight from reading. The warning against movements like NAR cannot be shouted loud enough. The dangers to the visible church are everywhere and NAR is simply one among many, though it has been gaining quite a bit of ground since the very early part of the 1900’s. This is testament to the fact of just how hard Satan works and how much leeway God gives Satan to pull the wool over people’s eyes.

Music That Moves the Emotions

How many times have you cried at a sad scene in a movie? I’m sure you’ve done it but not necessarily for the reason you think. Sure, the scene itself might have been touching with actors doing a very good job of selling the scene making you forget you’re watching a movie. But the most important aspect of that scene was put in during post-production: the music and sound effects. Gifted movie music composers create music that compliments each scene and helps drive that scene and bring out the required viewer’s emotions.

Religious OCD or Scrupulosity

So essentially, Matt’s counselors believed that to remove his fear of the devil, he should take up those things that are aligned with the devil – his name, his number, hell itself, etc. He also listened to music that created images of the devil in the lyrics. But notice how the very last sentence – We were breaking the association between God and fear – actually addresses the subject of God, not the devil. Were they trying to break Matt’s fear of God or the devil? If the devil, why equate the devil with God? This is aubtle way of programming Matt to see no real difference and that maybe, just maybe, these two personalities are simply forces in the world we think of as good vs. evil, yin and yang, etc.

Q: Incoming MOAB

Most Anons believe the texts themselves are a precurser to the actual MOAB that is coming. Is this ultimately referring to the Inspector General’s upcoming full report, to be released sometime in May? Not sure, however, last week, Q announced that the following week (this current week), a MOAB was coming. Of course, it’s difficult to know exactly what Q is referring to here because he has to be deliberately limited and cryptic in his posts. He cannot simply come out and dump official Intel onto public boards, so he is deliberately cryptic and sometimes, even confusing.

Q Posts Update Regarding Voter Fraud

But apparently, there are other lawsuits and investigations in the works regarding election fraud. Note Q’s comments, “Yes, midterms are safe” followed by “Watch CA.” Q is telling us that our elections will be protected this November from voter fraud, the very thing that has plagued America for decades and kept good and honest people out of office or handed them re-election losses. It also speaks to the fact that the only way Hillary might have won in the first place was through election fraud. However, safeguards were put in place to ensure that this did not occur.
