New Age: Get ready for what’s coming

New AgeOne of the biggest movements threatening the truth of God’s Word is the New Age, a mystical paradigm that has many different threads. It has permeated the majority of mainline denominations. It is experiential, it is extra-biblical, and it has changed the face of the visible church dramatically.  We’ve been able to report on a fraction of what has happened, but what until you hear what is coming.

Joining us today is a man who knows better than just about anyone the elements of the New Age and how it has crept into the church. These days it doesn’t sneak around anymore; it marches proudly down the center aisle and takes up a seat in the front pew. Warren Smith is an author and speaker who spent two decades as an active, “category 5” New Ager, and he joins us in studio today. Warren is here for the Prophecy Conference in Appleton, Wisconsin and a little later in the show we are going to introduce you to another special guest.

    Excellent program with Mr. Warren Smith! Thank-you so very much.

    His resources were valuable to me when God, the Holy Spirit, led me out of a church who practiced many occultic methods that they truly believe came from God, the Holy Spirit. This church was led astray by the products of what was called "The Toronto Blessing" and whose authority is what is called "Charima Magazine."

    Thank-You too, Stand Up For the Truth, in helping us understand just how seductive this false movement has become.

    Thanks so much for having Warren on your program; I have listened to all of his audio/video presentations, and read False Christ Coming…I recommend it and everything he writes, I was in the new-age also.
    The above comment regarding spirit has a point; some people who have witnessed and detested the "spiritism" in the professing church by such false teachers as Rick Joyner, Todd Bentley, Patricia King, etc, have retreated into "cessationist" teaching, which is just as false as anything from the above group. Cessationism denies the unchangeable nature of God, by denying His very nature, which is Spirit. The majority of the teachers/pastors who are into this heresy are filled with intellectual pride; they would be lost and frightened in a 3rd world country where their cell phones, credit cards, ipads, investment portfolios, GPS, and computers could be useless. I know of missionaries who have been in 3rd world countries (I was a missionary) who told me they would be dead if the Lord did not give them a dream to get up and get out of where they were, and receiving direction from the Holy Spirit was common for survival, and common for the day to day life of Christians that live in such a hard environment.
    Jesus said we are to worship God in Spirit and in truth;
    John 16:13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
    14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.
    John 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

    good stuff. always love Warren Smith So glad he is able to expose the false jesus of Jesus Calling. That book is so awful and seductive. I knew it reeked of new age spirituality throughout it first time i started reading. Christians would shutter if they realized they were literally reading teachings from seducing spirits. Looking forward to hearing Warren and Chris Quintana at CC Appleton. Sorry that I couldnt make it to this years conference

  4. From Book Two of In That Day Teachings…

    Spirits? What Spirits? vs. Understanding God’s Spirit Realm

    God is a Spirit. God breathed His Spirit into us. Jesus promised the Holy Spirit would teach us all things. But most preachers avoid teaching the dynamics of God’s spirit realm. So the world turns to New Age because the Church cannot explain this age. The world turns to fortune tellers because the Church turns away prophets. Christians are full of evil spirits because the Church says it cannot happen. Television preachers are proud of their ranting spirits, their money-extracting spirits and especially their uncorrectable spirits. God created a kingdom of spirits, but the modern church hides from the knowledge of it. The Church believes it has God’s truth in the form of the word, usually only the logos and seldom the rhema. God believes His Church must have His Spirit, as evidenced by signs which the Church tends to reject. The Church must stop its hide-from-spirits-but-seek-truth game. God says you cannot have His Truth without His Spirit. The Church which settles for one, has neither.

    Late-Cycle Shenanigans vs. Church De-Zombification
    By Robert Winkler Burke
    Book #8 of In That Day Teachings
    7/20/11 http://www.inthatdayteachings.com

    The game is over,
    For zombie church and late-cycle shenanigans!
    Resolve ugliness,
    Oh proud modern pastors, be ye born again!

    It is wishful thinking, preachers,
    To escape Isaiah’s overwhelming scourge!
    You can’t do much to help sheep,
    Until you see, it’s time for your own purge!

    You think,
    How dare that In That Day Teachings boldly confront,
    Your ills!
    But you miss when you swing! You can’t even bunt!

    You must wean your sheep,
    Off your own retarded, dumbed-down, stupifying church idiocy!
    Believe In That Day,
    Lest you won’t see, by self-blinding, what you can’t see!

    Modern Churchianity has deep systemic problems,
    Getting out of infantine church will be a steep learning curve!
    You preachers have been the undead making goblins,
    Untying all those dead albatrosses from necks, will take verve!

    God is rather keen,
    On In That Day Teachings feeding His starved-out sheep,
    The game is over,
    How long: morbid systems out of kilter, will you keep?

    Face it, oh smart-phone pastors,
    You’ve come to the inevitable end of modernity’s road!
    You’ve kissed everything New Age,
    And your emerging princess has turned ugly toad!

    A pastor and his church,
    Are only as strong as their true God,
    And God hasn’t shown up!
    Pastors now insult sheep: quite odd!

    You may want to pretend, (the game isn’t really over?)
    The masses of sheep shall never get it!
    How you hide self-interest, (hiding in church clover?)
    So you’re tempted to say, Forget it!

    With heightened trepidation,
    You keep thinking: Could In That Day Teachings be right?
    They can’t, ‘cause then you’d be wrong?
    Be careful there pastors, Whom you choose to fight!

    Ignore the hard-prophetic poems,
    In That Day Teachings and Reno’s strange Robert Burke?
    What about your prayers for help?
    There’s love in the teachings, and love always works!

    There’s no love, in fact,
    In de-coherent, modern church!
    In That Day Teachings,
    Have love! Oh pastors in lurch!

    Believe in self, self-interest hidden,
    Gobbledygook and New Age shenanigans rehashed?
    Or how about: prophetic correction!
    Yes, believe: truth hurts! Or by self: be smashed!

    That’s about what it has come to,
    In That Day,
    God gives answer! And preachers say,
    No? No way?

    Probably one of the biggest problems,
    Is that all this cogency, correction and truth comes from one source,
    One man, one website, one city,
    And pastors believe God can’t do that! They’re right, of course?

    Prophetic, rebuking, chastising fire,
    Says that the religious establishment has done it again!
    Like it was when Christ first came,
    The religious order is blocking God-in-man’s refrain!

    As Father was in Jesus Christ,
    So now Christ-in-You comes in man,
    The rigid believe Satan’s heist,
    And they won’t honor God’s best plan!

  5. One thing we tend to overlook is that the church as we know it in our day and age simply refuses to BE the body of Christ, expressing HIS life and nature. This problem is rampant from the top down, and is a major reason all kinds of garbage and heresies enter the church so easily.

    False beliefs and doctrines have always been a problem, but it is mostly in our time that even the "leaders" are willing participants.

  6. Yay, Warren Smith! What a blessing that man is to the Body of Christ. Looking forward to listening to the interview. Will repost link on my site.

    Thanks Amy & Mike, your show and articles are outstanding. Glad to see ye olde pirate Chris on your show too. Thank you, and may the Lord continue to bless you, your families and your ministry in His service.
