A replacement is taking place: the replacement of Christianity
|Another thing that happened this month was that, at Mount Sinai, there was a declaration in which religious leaders came together. Here’s a report on what it said:
As far as I know there’s nothing about Sinai in Islam but maybe someone can correct me on that. Even if there is, it is quite clear that Muhammad was never at Mount Sinai and did not get any revelations there.
The declaration continues:
At Mount Sinai God gave Moses Ten Commandments. They weren’t Moses’ idea, they were God’s. Moses didn’t work out the Ten Commandments. God gave them to him, and he wrote them on tablets of stone.
These 10 commandments which they’ve now replaced God’s (Moses’) Commandments with are commandments for climate repentance. What do you make of these?
- We are stewards of this world
- Creation manifests divinity
- Everything in life is interconnected
- Do no harm
- Look after tomorrow
- Rise above ego for our world
- Change our inner climate
- Repent and return
- Every action matters
- Use mind, open heart
Is that inspired? Do you understand what it means?
Do you understand the Ten Commandments?
You should have no other gods before Me. It’s pretty clear: you have one God; you don’t put another god before Him.
You shall not steal. You should not commit adultery. You should not murder.
Can you understand that? Do you need to go to Bible College to work it out? No! It’s obvious and it’s clear. God says what He means. He gives you a commandment; then, either you keep it, or you don’t keep it.
If you don’t keep it, you have to repent and ask God to forgive you.
God’s Commandments are clear.
What do these commandments mean? They’re puzzling.
Number 2: Creation manifests divinity.
Number 3: Everything in life is interconnected.
Number 8 says: Repent and return. ‘Repent and return’, well, that’s the question what are you going to return to? The Bible says, ‘repent and believe the Gospel’. It tells you what to do when you repent. What did you believe? It’s just as ‘repent and return’.
And it occurred to me that we’re going to ‘return to Babylon’. This is ‘repent and return to Babylon’ which is going to be the world religious system at the end of days, bringing all the religions together into a one world religious system which is going to replace a Biblical Christianity.
It says also ‘change our inner climate’ (number 7). How do you change your inner climate? Has anyone done that? Not hot or cold? Jesus does talk about being either hot or cold and not lukewarm, doesn’t He?
What does it mean, to change your inner climate? I don’t know but I guess it’s something to do with self-improvement, self-improvement by positive thinking, by trying to improve yourself through your own effort if you like.
I would say that this ‘repent and return’ bit is an integral part of the abandonment of Christianity on the world stage, with world Christian leaders leading the charge in it and bringing together people of other faiths into a one world religious system. It certainly happens more and more.
Remembrance Day’s subverted meaning
Two or three weeks ago, I listened to the Remembrance Day service with Barbara. I just like to listen to the Remembrance’s Day – a bit of patriotism – which is not very fashionable today and giving thanks for the Armed Forces who saved us from the Nazis and others.
The service also ends with a (or used to end rather) with a Christian service. I had a few questions about it, but they would say the Lord’s Prayer, they would have Bible readings, and they would sing hymns like ‘Abide with me’ which are Christian and biblical, telling God to abide with us in the troubles and the difficulties of life. It used to be, basically, a Christian service.
It’s good to remind ourselves that these things have happened, and to call on God to save us from them. But this time, we watched it, and I didn’t enjoy it at all. When you got to the religious bit (the first bit was okay), it was terrible.
We had the Bishop of London a lady who was very wishy-washy and hardly convincing in what she was saying. Instead of the Lord’s Prayer being said, it was sung.
And it was sung in a way that you couldn’t really hear the words. So, if you didn’t want to believe it you could just switch off.
Then, a Hindu lady came up with a Bindi spot on her forehead. The Bindi spot represents the third eye or ‘enlightenment’ in Hinduism. She began reading a poem, I think, which she had written herself which was all about the power of positive thinking. It was not biblical in any way. It was called ‘The Moment’ and it said:
Does that sound Christian to you? Yes? No! It’s YOU who is changing the world from your own strength not from God’s.
This is the whole spirit we have today: humanism, New Age Eastern religions. Change yourself from ‘the power within you’ not the power of God, the power that is with you. And this doesn’t work because we’re not going to change the world for the better. The world is going to go from bad to worse according to the Bible.
I prayed this to the brother who came to speak to us a couple of weeks ago, because he came around to our house, one of the brothers who are speaking about creation. He said when he heard it: “These were great swelling words of emptiness”, which I think it is probably true.
‘The power of positive thinking’, nothing said about meeting with God to change our inner nature nothing, about a new birth in Jesus. The power from within which is a New Age, Hindu idea aims to replace Christianity, and this was followed by the singing of Leonard Cohen’s song ‘Hallelujah’.
Do you know that one? Do you like it? No, I don’t like it! You must read the words; the words of Leonard Cohen’s poem are absolutely non-Christian. A catchy tune, but nothing to do with ‘Hallelujah praising God’. In fact, in the original, he’s lost his lover and is missing her. But now he says ‘hallelujah’ to make himself feel better.
The one they played at the Albert Hall said, quote:
I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool ya
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the lord of song
With nothing on my tongue but hallelujah
Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
And it’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah
Compare that with ‘Abide with me fast falls even tide’, a song asking God to come and abide with us.
Notice also that the song says: ‘Maybe there’s a God above’. Any of your hymns say, ‘maybe there’s a God above?’ God is above, whether you believe it or not, He’s there. So, you’d better get to know Him.
You say I took the name in vain
I don’t even know the name
But if I did, well really, what’s it to ya?
There’s a blaze of light in every word
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah
And this is part of the replacement of Christianity with a new religion for the New Age devoid of content and, also powerless to save.
Cultism and deception
One of the things that happens at the Remembrance Day services is that the armed forces pledge their allegiance to the sovereign. In the past of course, it was Queen Elizabeth II; now it’s King Charles III. Is there a difference between Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles III?
There’s a book called ‘The Prince and the Paranormal’ by a man called John Dale written in 1986.
It says this about the then Prince Charles:
It goes on to speak about an experience Prince Charles had with a man called Lawrence Van de Post in Africa where he was influenced by Van Der post and the theories of a Swiss psychologist called Carl Jung. Carl Jung believed that there is a spiritual dimension to human existence which is stored in our unconscious mind and is passed on from generation to generation. He also believed that humans can make contact with this other dimension through a religious quest, through psychic experiences, through dreams and the paranormal.
Does that sound healthy to you? Charles following this said in an interview which was published in the Sunday Times:
Such a statement is totally New Age, occult, and non-Christian. The Bible tells us that there is one way: to go through Jesus Christ. There are not ‘many ways’. All these paths don’t come to or converge in some infinite point, they’ll either go to heaven or to hell. And there’s one way to escape hell to go to heaven, that’s to repent and believe in Jesus Christ.
Nobody, in official terms, will say that today because it’s offensive to people who don’t believe it. Therefore, you have this mushy New Age religion, which is now coming from the church, from the sovereign, from the King, from most of society, certainly from the media. Most of the education system is indoctrinating the children into it.
The Bible is very clear about that in the passage from Timothy I read to you and other passages in Thessalonians, and in Jesus’ own words in Matthew 24 which tell us that, in the last days, one of the major features of this time is going to be deception.
‘Don’t let people deceive you. Many false christs and false prophets are going to come’, Jesus said.
