What is Energy? Have you heard this term before? It is used quite often in Holistic Health or Alternative Medicine. These forms of medicine is tied to the New Age Movement. The Movement doesn’t believe that there is a personal creator (God) who originally made all things. As a result of this belief, they developed an alternative explanation to account for the existence of all things. In other words, this occult view needs to have a kind of “creative force” that is equivalent to the one true God. Continue reading
Crystals certainly are beautiful objects, for they were created by God. Portions of God’s glorious heavenly city, the New Jerusalem, will be constructed from crystal. Revelation 21:11, & 18-20 “It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. ” What a beautiful site that will be to see! He has also made the believer’s foundation in a beautiful manner as well, Isaiah 54:11 Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems, And lay your foundations with sapphires. 12 I will make your pinnacles of rubies, Your gates of crystal, And all your walls of precious stones.

The Hindu’s teach that there are seven main “energy” centers found in the body and are called chakra’s. The word chakra is derived from Sanskrit, meaning “wheel”, or “circle of life”. Chakras are located along the spine and influence different nerve systems, organs and glands with their energy. They believe that the energy that becomes coiled in the base of the spine (root chakra) is called Kundalini. Their spiritual goal is to awaken and release the Kundalini in order to attain a greater “consciousness” or “enlightenment”. They believe through meditation, yoga, visualization, the energy can pass back up the spine until it reaches the top of the head (crown chakra), producing a mystical experience. This is what the Hindu’s teach and believe, as a Christian I believe this to be from the occult and what the Bible calls a doctrine of demons. 1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons
When most people in the USA hear the word “yoga,” they understand it to be an exercise. They envision a person on a mat striking poses and practicing stretches to develop the body and relax the mind. But there is more to it than meets the eye. These poses and stretches embody more than physical exercise. Yoga has power to unleash the Kundalini spirit.

There is a false teaching that the Holy Spirit isn’t for today, or that He doesn’t work or move with us as He did with the Apostles. This is a lie, and this isn’t found any where in scripture. A lot of churches have this belief, and this has created damaging effects. The Holy Spirit helps and benefits our lives in many ways.
The Holy Spirit is our Teacher:
Who is the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit is a person just like God and Jesus. He is a part of the Godhead or the Trinity; all 3 persons working together as one. The Holy Spirit is a Gentleman and He will never force himself upon you. The Holy Spirit will come inside and use you and work through you ONLY if you allow him to. You can say no at any time. He will be sad, but He will never force himself upon you. If we keep saying no to Him, then He becomes Grieved. When He becomes grieved there can be consequences.
