Counterfeit Spirituality, Faith, and Christians

Listening to this old sermon given by David Wilkerson, brought a sad realization; that being, a greater number of folks then we imagined, claiming to be born-again are not.

  1. (Should have added, this was from 1990)

  2. Indeed. On the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said that you will know these false prophets by their fruit! It’s the ones with bad fruit that will be saying “Lord!Lord!” on the Day that He says “I never knew you … depart from me!”

    Many blessings,

  3. “Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. ”

    I had of course read this scripture before, but last night I found it very comforting to know this trouble with those professing to be Christian, yet preaching another gospel, is nothing new to the true church.

    • Thanks Sylvia! Please forgive the delay…bad week.

      What does any of this have to do with Israel? By now we all know that the heart and soul of Islam is to see all Christians and Jews removed from the face of the earth. If proponents of Chrislam are successful in recruiting numbers of people who call themselves Christians, then not only will the Muslims want to see Israel and all Jews annihilated, the Chrislamists will also become of part of this evil, anti-Semitic force. Chrislam is apostasy and anyone who buys into this false concept is on a very slippery slope. The Bible teaches that the Jews are God’s chosen people therefore we, as Christians, are to love the Jews.

      I agree, the uniting of Christianity with Islam is not really possible…for whatever the end product would be called, it would no longer be biblical Christianity. And that goes for trying to blend Christianity with ANY other religion, including Judaism, Hinduism, etc….

      But that aside, i can’t agree with much else this author wrote. The quote above irked me.. 😉

      According to this dude the bible teaches we are to love the jews but apparently, not the muslims. What a crock! That old dispensational (false teaching) which states jews are still God’s chosen people continues to spread. It is a satanic lie.

      God does not show favoritism based on ethnicity or race: one is either in Christ (Chosen) or not.

      We should love and pray for jews AND muslims equally.

      I cannot for the life of me, understand why that is so hard for these folks to grasp. 😦

  4. I understand and totally agree with the underpinning message. Holiness is not an additional to being a Christian, it is interwoven. There is no Christian that isn’t commanded to walk as Jesus did.

    However, and perhaps its a generational thing, I see he is blowing a sandstorm of trivial matters like genre of music and rated R movies. Granted, one must be wise and always discerning when interacting with anything (even walking outside!) but there’s nothing inherently wrong with a music genre, but lyrical content. I’ve heard ‘christian’ songs that are just plain wrong and dangerous theologically and secular music that seems to understand the nature of the world much more clearly. Same thing with movies etc.

    I really like Metal (and this is a wide genre, I’m a fan of progressive/symphonic, look up Rob Rock, Narnia, Blind Guardian, Hammerfall etc) and listen to it often. No I do not put this over following my King, Jesus, but we, in Him, are free. As Paul said, we’re not under legal bindings, but free in His Grace. Not under “touch not!” “taste not!” restrictions. Yet wisdom must be exercised. Sometimes I even listen to some of the trashy pop songs coming out to see a glimpse of the darkness of the world, to see what is being said.

    Holiness is more than outward trappings, but a changed heart.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby

It's the end (of the end) of the world as we know it...
