The Spiritual Deception of Yoga ?

modern yoga class 2 Article by brother William Fife (Scotland).

     It is the purpose of this short testimony to show that yoga is a spiritual deception. 

If you think that you can use yoga only for physical training and not be affected by its spiritual side, you are wrong. You are wrong if you believe the many websites and teachers in the West who declare that yoga is just a harmless physical exercise.

The Bible warns of such spiritual seduction: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (1 TIMOTHY 4:1).

Speaking from my own experience, I am convinced that yoga is one of the seducing doctrines God expressly warns about in the above scripture. I started yoga at age 16, and practiced every day for 1-2 hours. It seemed to strengthen my body and improve my flexibility. At the age of 18, I dived into it (I was at that time unemployed) and did some 4-6 hours of yoga daily. I was convinced that yoga enlightened my own spiritual intelligence and enhanced my physical fitness. I would have vehemently denied that there is anything religious in yoga or that I was in any way influenced by the spiritual or religious aspects of yoga. The following is why I think differently today.

We thank each of you for your prayers and support in the LORD’s work over this last year. Through your help thousands of people have been blessed with Light, and hope and assurance from the Promises of God’s Word !

Now, the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) has opened the door for us to share this Truth and the power of His Life-giving Word with millions of souls across the world. In just a few weeks (January 13-15th), Isaiah Ministries will be uniting with Amazing Discoveries and Little Light Studios to present 5 messages on the spiritual dangers of martial arts & Eastern mysticism to God’s church.

     In these messages, we will be revealing not only the powers behind the mystical practices of Tai-chi, Yoga and energy healing; but also the very real dangers facing God’s people through the current flood of Eastern philosophy in movies, media and literature; and the dragon’s subtle attempt to unite these ancient pagan philosophies, through Spiritual Formation, with the Christian faith.

To Set the Captives Free . . . !

TheLeperAnd if the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed . . . !”   John 8:36

     He came to heal the broken hearted, to proclaim deliverance to the captives, recovering of sight to the blind, and to set at liberty them that are bruised and beaten down repeatedly . . . !” Luke 4:18-19  Being raised in a 7th day Adventist Christian home, and growing up hearing about the law of Jehovah, the message of the three angels, and the importance of the Sabbath, I took little notice of statements such as these which I found in the Scriptures. The freedom here spoken of was thought to be needed more by the drunkard, the thief, the murderer and adulterers, and even more by those who knew not the knowledge which I had of the mark of the beast, and coming great time of trouble.

As I look back now, I realize that I knew a great deal “about God;” I could argue almost any debate on Scripture doctrines, but had never really known by experience His great love and desire to literally dwell within my heart and mind, and make me free indeed!”     That is until the LORD in His mercy, allowed my wife and I to know the reality of the battle in which each of us are found. A battle in which none of my will, my strength or head-knowledge was of any avail.

In 2003, after months of fighting with the unseen whispers in my head, I yielded to the voice of SELF, and filed for a divorce; a decision which would change for ever, not only my life, but that of my wife and two young children as well . . . This was the beginning of the greatest miracle we had ever seen. For what the devil thought to use for evil, and our family’s destruction, the LORD God Almighty (Yehuwah El’Shaddai) wrought mightily for our good ! And it is this miracle, the miracle of the Glad Tidings of Christ, which begat within us the Life which God has promised, the Life which Jesus both lived, died, and rose again to freely give us. And the ministry which the LORD has called each of us to do, saying . . .

All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore . . . into all the world (begin in your own neighborhood), and proclaim the Glad Tidings to every creature. And he that believeth and is baptized (with the Spirit) shall be saved . . . !”   Matthew 28:18-19, Mark 16:15-16& ref: Titus 3:4-6 Continue reading
