Alpha & Omega – the Eastern Roots of Spiritual Formation !

     “Today the mysteries of heathen worship are replaced by the secret associations (societies) and seances, and the obscurities and wonders, of Spiritualistic mediums. The disclosures of these mediums are eagerly received by thousands who refuse to accept Light from God’s Word or through His Spirit (John 6:63) . . .”

Many God fearing men and women, as well as Christian authors are now warning God’s children of the very real dangers of Spiritual Formation. But few realize where the influence of Dr. Kellogg’s pantheism came from, and where this modern practice finds its roots . . .
In this new series, we take a closer look at the spiritual powers behind this modern emerging movement, and examine its teachings and practice in the Light of God’s Word, and the philosophies of the mystical religions of the far east . . .

Believers in Spiritualism may speak with scorn of the magicians of old but the great deceiver laughs in triumph as they yield to his arts under a different form.  There are many who shrink with horror from the thought of consulting spirit mediums, but who are attracted by more pleasing forms of spiritism, such as the Emmanuel movement. Still others are led astray by the teachings of Christian Science, and by the mysticism of Theosophy (H.P. Blavatsky) and other Oriental religions.”

I call upon those who have been connected with these binding influences to break the yoke to which they have long submitted, and stand as free men in Christ. Nothing but a determined effort will break the spell that is upon them.    
     Be not deceived; many will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. We have now before us the alpha of this danger. The Omega will be of a most startling nature . . . !”

We are now working diligently on final editing, and the full series will be available on DVD from SECRETS UNSEALED and other ministries, as soon as we have it ready for shipment. Please look for updates soon !

Living Temple contains the Alpha of these theories. The Omega would follow in a little while, and I tremble for our people . . . !

The Gospel – What Really Happened at Calvary !

“For I am not ashamed of the Glad Tidings (gospel) of Christ, for it is the power of God unto Salvation (freedom, deliverance, rescue, healing and restoration) to every one that believeth . . .
     As it is written . . . The Just shall live by faith !”     Romans 1:16-17

So what really happened at Calvary ?

Forgiven –     “And you being dead in your sins, and the uncircumcision of your flesh . . . hath He quickened* together with Him (Christ Jesus), having forgiven you all trespasses !”     Colossians 2:13

Rescued –     “For He saith . . . I have heard thee _________ (your name) in a time accepted* (Isaiah 49:8-16), and in the day of Salvation have I succoured (rescued) thee . . . Behold, now is the accepted time* (Luke 4:18-19), behold, Today is the day of your Salvation . . . !”     II Corinthians 6:2

Redeemed –     “For as much as ye know . . . that ye were not redeemed* (loosen, atonement, ransomed in full) with corruptible things, such as silver and gold . . . but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot . . . !”
I Peter 1:18-19
ref: Deuteronomy 27:1 thru 30:20 and Galatians 3:10-13

Delivered –     “Giving thanks unto The Father (Matthew 23:9), which hath made us meet (worthy) to be partakers of the Inheritance of the saints in Light . . . Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son . . . In Whom we have Redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of our sins !”     Colossians 1:12-14

Healed –    “Who His Own self bare our sins (Isaiah 53:4-6) in His Own body upon that tree . . . So that we, being now dead to sins, should live unto righteousness (Romans 8:2-4 & II Corinthians 4:10-11) . . . and by Whose stripes we are healed !”
I Peter 2:24,
ref: Isaiah 53:4-6 & Matthew 8:17 Continue reading

Chosen in Him . . . ?

ascension     There has been one promise of Scripture which the Lord Jesus Christ has been bringing to my remembrance repeatedly over the last few months. It is found in John 8:31-32, where He tells us . . . “You shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free !”

And then I remember Christ’s prayer in the garden, when He cries to our Father on our behalf, and says . . . “Sanctify them through Thy Truth, Yea, Thy Word is Truth !”     John 17:17

In the original greek of the text, the word “Truth” literally means Verity, (verily so) !

So what Christ Jesus is really promising to each of us, is that we shall know the Truth, and the Truth (the unfailing verity of His Word) shall make us free . . . “For whom the Son makes free, shall be free indeed !”
John 8:33-36

For your Sake !

Bible 4     “As it is written . . . . I have made thee a father of many nations, before Him Whom he (Abraham) believed . . . . even God (Elohim – the Mighty One), Who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not, as though they already were . . . !”   Romans 4:17

     This is the power which is brought to view in Romans 4:17. Now let us read on, that we may see the force of this language in this connection. Still speaking of Abraham, the apostle says: Who against hope believed in hope (with expectation, anticipation and confidence), that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be !
