I was at a loss for words and Satan was discouraging me. Last night I prayed that the Lord would give me His words, for  I had none.  This is the dream I had last night.

I dreamt that I was in a crowd of people at some musical event that was worldly and evil. But there was a way out. I could see a pathway.

There were two pools of baptism.  One path was leading to Jesus and the other was to a deceiver.  I could see the way to Jesus.  I could not see Him but I could see the water flowing from his hands onto the heads of those bowing down to him. There were many crowding around the pool of the deceiver.   Written on the stone walls surrounding the deceiver there was scripture, but he was quoting the second part of John 10:10 “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  The deceivers’ voice was sickly sweet and he bid the people to come to him. He was sitting in the pool and splashing the water in invitation.

I headed for Jesus. The path was easy to see but there were many barricades put there by the surrounding people. I walked right over them.

Then suddenly, I was walking against a tide of  people who did not want to listen to the Word of Truth and were leaving in disinterest. I begged of them “Please turn around, you are going the wrong direction!”.  Their faces looked blank and they ignored my pleas. BUT..a few stopped walking, a look of realization came upon their face, and Praise God, they turned around. 

 (End of dream)

Many churches are full of deceiving spirits.  Sadly, these unholy spirits are invited by the metaphysical (beyond the seen world) new-age practices introduced by pastors and congregation alike.  These new-age practices create an altered consciousness of emptiness that opens a doorway to the other world. This altered consciousness can be easily attained by one method.  Meditation. I am not talking about the kind of meditation that involves deep thinking, I am talking about the kind that empties the mind of thought.  I believe that the repetitive music being introduced today… the singing of single phrases over and over again, is a step to prepare congregations for the new-age breath-prayers and centering which is really….yep…meditation.  If anyone, I mean anyone, whether it be  a friend or leader in the church, suggests anything that closely resembles meditation. Flee.

I am grieving for our churches.  The messages are watered-down to appeal to the unsaved. There is no preaching of repentance. There is no guidance for holy living.  There is no Glory given to God. If a pastor preaches damnation, then the people start looking for a new pastor…one who will tell them they will be blessed with riches if only they ask and that Jesus came to this world to say,  “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

Therefore, there are many unsaved people coming weekly to their church, to sing the songs, repeat the creeds, pray the prayers and leave their tithe to gain the promised prosperity of their giving.  This is so sad that my heart aches for the Lord who gave his life for us and suffered so terribly on the cross.

If you are looking for a new way to seek God besides studying the Bible, I beg of you, please turn around, you are going the wrong direction, and turn only to Him.
