This song made me cry. The beauty of it is amazing and just what we in the body of Christ need to hear in these troubling times!

“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand” (Daniel 12:10).
Actually, I think it goes back further.
Everyone remembers the JFK & R Kennedy assassinations. Those were conspiratorial events; the govt sponsored lone shooter stuff was a lie in both cases in my opinion. I don’t know if the Trilateral outfit was in charge then but those groups doing the dirty deeds certainly were secretly spawned & encouraged to overthrow our constitutional govt toward the global beast (perhaps initially naive) now just around the corner.
As u observe our country’s situation now, they have nearly accomplished their goal. U may not see or be astounded at the difference unless u are a senior like myself & observed our freedom losses over the years (the boiling frog thing).
It’s not their little secret anymore. You cannot trust anything the govt says because the devil is their god & he is the father of lies & the truth is not in him. “Our” govt is not ours any longer. Virtually everything u see on tv news, mags, govt “safe and effective” mandates are lies. The globalist propaganda lies pervade everywhere. It’s unavoidable.
The godless ones are now blatant in their disregard for our God given constitutional rights & our God of the Bible. They wish to crush us & make us their personal slaves under the guise of “you’ll own nothing & be happy”. They are blatant because they are confident success is now theirs. They have infiltrated the govts of the world & possess all the $ to coerce, force & bribe their way to the ultimate goal of unquestioned world domination & obedience to themselves.
In fact, a good personal rule I use is whatever our liberal govts tell us is true is usually a lie or at least half truth. I always get cynical & look at the opposite side to get a better idea of what could be really true of their tyrannical intentions. Those lying intentions are a given. Their lies can sound very good to the uninitiated but lead to destruction.
You can ONLY believe the Bible 100% of the time. If u have difficulty understanding it then ASK the Lord Jesus for discernment & direction. Only He is faithful & true & CANNOT lie EVER! In all your ways acknowledge Him & He will direct your paths. Everyone else needs a disclaimer.
Well, it IS war after all. And clearly, no one invloved is playing by the established rules of war, per the Geneva Convention.
Now I wonder if we’ve done that too. And by proxy the answer is yes, because the West is supplying Ukraine with everything to keep this war going until it escalates and engulfs the world. That’s the agenda, after all. (Satan loves war and war is coming, all over the world.) There will be major retaliation by Russia for what has happened over the past 10 days; the globalists are probably wondering just what it’s going to take to get Putin to retaliate in a BIG way.
My bet is on a major EMP attack because that will totally destroy our economy, and eventually our nation, without actually launching nukes. (It sounds crazy but remember the X-Files TV show predicted a 9/11 attack on NYC in one of their episodes almost 10 months before it happened. They also did an episode that predicted a massive EMP attack against us, so I’m guessing that’s next. Satan, the ultimate imitator, prophecies his plans using the power of the air.)
With an EMP attack our resources remain in place, but leave us desolate and defenseless, pushing us back to the early 19th century in living conditions and technology use. That is the perfect setting to invite the Russians and Chinese to immediately invade us before we can effectively retaliate. We already know we have a government that is on their team, not ours, so meaningful resistance would be difficult, if it was even attempted. I grieve for our nation and those in the armed forces, brave soldiers and patriots, who would feel complete helplessness in that situation.
I know God is sovereign and it is His plan to put an end to sin through all of this. What a battle in the Heavens must be raging now, since what is happening there is playing out to a lesser degree here on Earth.
These are times for Christians to put on the WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD, we’ll need it like never before. We must remember, our Almighty God is the Lord of Armies, and He is already victorious, and we are victorious in Him.
I originally wrote this article in 2016.
Periodically, I bring it back out for Christians to read. The devil will always whisper to children of God: “Yoga is fine! Just don’t do the meditation part.” He’s a liar.
I bring this article out often because I see online that many Christians will not listen to others when they point out that there is NO such thing as Christian yoga. Now that winter is not far away, I felt the need to post this article again. Many people choose yoga as indoor exercise during the colder months.
Nothing seems to get a heated debate started faster than challenging a Christian who practices Yoga on this subject.
“But I only do the stretching part.” I can’t tell you how many times I have heard this. This article is written for the sake of clarification and education on the practice of Yoga.
WHAT IS YOGA?
Yoga (/ˈjoʊɡə/; Sanskrit: योग, Listen) are the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines that aim to transform body and mind. The term denotes a variety of schools, practices and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism (including Vajrayana and Tibetan Buddhism and Jainism,[ the best-known being Hatha yoga and Raja yoga. The term yoga is derived from the literal meaning of “yoking together” a span of horses or oxes, but came to be applied to the “yoking” of mind and body.- source
Yoga:noun a mystic and ascetic Hindu discipline by which one seeks to achieve liberation of the self and union with the supreme spirit or universal soul through intense concentration, deep meditation, and practices involving prescribed postures, controlled breathing, etc. a system of exercising involving the postures, breathing, etc. practiced in this discipline source
A Christian who studies the Word of God, should instantly see red flags and discern that Yoga and Christianity are not compatible. We see in the definition “Yoga is the physical, mental and spiritual practices or disciplines that aim to transform body and mind.” What does God say about transforming our minds?
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2).
Immediately we see a problem between transforming our minds in Yoga, and being transformed by the renewing of our minds according to the Word of God. As Christians, God wants our minds to be renewed, so we will be able to know His will for us. God wants us to be closer to Him. He speaks to us through His Word. He is our perfect Father.
“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3).
We know that the practice of Yoga is rooted in Hinduism and Buddhism. As Christians, do we want to open up our minds to something that will transform us to be more like Hindus or Buddhists? Ok, when we see it in black and white, it seems unthinkable. But this is exactly what practicing Yoga is accomplishing in your life.
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12).
Next we see in the definition – The term yoga is derived from the literal meaning of “yoking together” a span of horses or oxes, but came to be applied to the “yoking”of mind and body.
Another red flag should easily be seen by a student of the Word. Let’s see what God says about being yoked together:
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14).
The picture of oxen being yoked together is used by both Yoga and the Word. In Yoga, the goal is for mind and body to be yoked together. It’s a Hindu discipline to bring mind and body into submission – but to what end?
Were you aware that every Yoga pose is a posture of worship to various Hindu gods? In this way, the person is making offerings to millions of Hindu deities! Of course, these details are left off of the “Welcome pamphlet” in Yoga centers. People are coming there to stretch and relax and be energized, right?
THE KUNDALINI SPIRIT
In an interview with Dave Hunt of the Berean Call (Dave is now with our Lord) the subject of the Kundalini Spirit was addressed:
“In spite of the advertisements and talk about health and fitness yoga’s real goal is to awaken Kundalini power, coiled like a serpent at the base of the spine, ready to spring up to manifest itself through the alleged chakras, (centers of universal force) of the body.” Now, what exactly is Kundalini yoga, or Kundalini power, for that matter?”
“Well, to put it bluntly, it’s demonic. There is no way you can explain it physically, it’s a non physical force. There certainly is nothing coiled at the base of the spine, three and one-half times coiled like a serpent that’s going to spring up when you get in the proper state of consciousness, supposedly. This is the same occult power that all the occultists are in touch with, or try to be in touch with.” – source
In yoga, the student is told to empty their minds to prepare for meditation. An empty mind is exactly what Satan likes! Look at what God says about meditation:
“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer” (Psalm 19:14).
We meditate on His Law and on His Word. We FILL our minds with the goodness of our Father’s perfect and Holy Words. Do you want an empty mind, or a mind filled with God’s Word?
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee” (Psalm 119:11). KJV
We have seen the videos of holy laughter and other aberrant behavior in churches. Do we have to wonder from where the spirits came who wreak such havoc with children of God? Could it be that so many Christians are practicing yoga and are bringing the Kundalini spirit into their services? I have read that Hindus who knowingly seek out the Kundalini spirit, behave in similar ways during their worship. With the uncontrollable laughter and rolling about on the floor, it would be hard to tell the difference between them and a charismatic Christian service!
Watch Hindus practice Yoga: looks very much like people in the NAR movement and other aberrant movements writhing around on the floor – doesn’t it?
Over thirty million people in America practice Yoga. In the 1960’s, Transcendental Meditation came on the American scene. It was a time of self realization and finding the meaning to life within oneself. Society pushed God aside, and replaced Him with Self. Secular humanism is the new religion, and it has caused the moral decline of our society. If there is no God, then there are no moral absolutes, right? Unfortunately, this ideology has crept into the Church as well.
How will we persuade a lost world that they need to repent and trust Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins, if we look just like them? God wants us to come out from them and behave and live like His children. When the world looks at us, do they see Jesus? That should be the prayer of each of our hearts – daily.
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (1 Timothy 4:1). KJV
If we try to fit into this world, we not only ruin our testimony, but we put ourselves in jeopardy of falling away from God. Do you not know that the devil seeks to destroy you all day long? He is the accuser of the brethren. He is a liar and the father of lies. If we don’t cling to our Father and study His Word, we become prey for the enemy of our souls.
I have heard Christians talk about the evil of New Age practices, and yet they practice yoga. Somehow our churches have placed a stamp of approval on yoga. A brother or sister in Christ would never think of attending a séance or play with a Ouija board, or see a spiritist for a reading. But these same people will go to their yoga classes and enthusiastically invite others. It’s time for the truth about yoga to be told to your family and friends!
Writing this article will certainly not win me new friends. As a matter of fact, some may choose to ignore the warnings and consider me a bit fanatical. But hopefully others who have wondered about yoga, will be glad that they now know the dangers of it.
Don’t forget that the Evil one – the father of lies – the author of confusion – Satan, wants to take you away from the Lord. Hold fast to what you know is right. Turn away from evil. Cling to Jesus and His Word.
1 Peter 5:8
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”
