Be Not Deceived and Learn Methods of Discernment to determine if bad or not:

This is what I use to measure as a method for discernment to not be deceived by others:

  • Who was the founder of this modality?
  • What was his/her spirituality?
  • What culture did it come out of?
  • What were their beliefs?
  • Who is their God or gods?
  • What is the message or true meaning?

Another way to learn methods of discernment is to study your word, read it and memorize the scripture.  Also, if you ever get a check in your spirit, don’t ignore it.  Don’t trust everything your pastor does.  If you don’t learn methods of discernment you will end up being deceived and opening the door to a demonic world that can hurt you.

I know that Jesus warned us about deception and being deceived through God’s Word.  Listed below are discernment scriptures:

whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap

Romans 16:18 “For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”   1 Corinthians 15:33 “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”

be not deceived for god is not mocked – learn methods of discernment

2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”

heart deceived – learn methods of discernment

James 1:26 “If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.”

let no man deceive you – learn methods of discernment

1 John 3:7 “Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.”

being deceived by deceivers – learn methods of discernment

2 John 1:7 “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”

Spiritual Transformation Process

What is the Difference between Transformation vs. Sanctification

What is the big deal with Spiritual Transformation Process? Are words changing their meaning slightly?

The Greek word for “sanctification” used in the New Testament also means “holiness.”(1) The verb “to sanctify” means “to make holy.”(2) When God sanctifies believers, He does not only set them apart for a holy use, He makes them holy. Obviously believers cannot be set apart for holy uses unless they are first made holy people. Jesus was “sanctified and sent into the world” (John 10:36)(3) in the sense that, because He was perfectly holy, He could be set apart for a special holy work, the work of saving the world from sin. When Jesus prayed, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17), He was asking that His followers should be made holy and, therefore, be useful for the holy work for which He had chosen them. First He made them holy, and then He “sent them into the world” (verse 18).

The Meaning of Spiritual Transformation Process

The true meaning of Transformation is The Greek word for biblical “transformation” is metamorphoo, from which we get the English word metamorphosis: i.e., a complete change, such as a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. Biblical transformation, then, applies to an individual believer’s progress in sanctification. In Romans 12:2 we are being transformed by the renewing of your mind. How, through his word! His word is alive and washing our mind.

What’s the big deal? When we renew our minds, we are transforming our minds to the mind of Christ ( 1 Cor. 2:16).  That is the process of sanctification.

The new meanings for the word “transformation” entered the modern lexicon in the early 1980s. New Age author Marilyn Ferguson, who is credited with launching the “coming out party” for Luciferian Theosophists, extensively used the term. She defined it as “transformation of consciousness,” “a new seeing,” “conscious evolution,” and a “paradigm change.” Transformation was an essential part of the Teilhardian leap from “individual evolution” to “collective evolution.”3 Christian discernment author Constance Cumbey bluntly remarked that Ferguson’s type of “transformation” was “a euphemism for progressively deeper levels of demonic influence and has now infiltrate the church using the word transformation.”

Has the Biblical Meaning “Transformation” Be Different in Some Aspects in The Church Today?

The church mean today is Transformation is the end-goal of a process that moves from TRADITION through TRANSITION to TRANSFORMATION. This is sometimes called a Paradigm Shift, which means that Transformation shifts one’s worldview (paradigm) from the old to a new. This is a dialectically unfolding PROCESS of Sanctification in which the THESIS is continually challenged by ANTITHESIS, evolving into ever-unfolding SYNTHESES. Transformation is engineered, orchestrated and/or manipulated. Transformation involves changing over a person’s values, opinions, beliefs, attitudes, and even their behaviors to that of the new paradigm/worldview.

There is currently a bait and switch going on in neo-evangelical circles. When evangelicals hear the word transformation bandied about, they assume it is a biblical word from Romans 12:2: “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.” In fact, the traditional meaning of the word can be found in Matthew Pool’s Commentary from the 1600s, which exhorts: Be you regenerated, and changed in your whole man; beginning at the mind, by which the Spirit of God worketh upon the inferior faculties of the soul. Matthew Henry’s Commentary further expounds, he progress of sanctification, dying to sin more and more, and living to righteousness more and more.

When evangelicals hear the phrase church transformation they may think of the paradigm shift in liturgy, worship styles, music, mega-churches, etc. In reality, transformation is substantial and deep, intent on re-forging the very foundations of Protestantism, western civilization, and ultimately the governance of the entire earth. While lip service is being paid to the traditional definitions you read about above, in reality the word transformation now indicates a societal, cultural and global revolution. Here is one new definition which hints at the larger scale:

“Transformation–the measurable supernatural impact of the presence and power of God on human society, sacred and secular. In the church, this is characterized by increased holiness of life, accelerated conversion growth, reconciliation in relationships, mobilization of gifts and callings, and an increased relevance to and participation in greater society. In the culture, this may be characterized by pervasive awareness of the reality of God, a radical correction of social ills, a commensurate decrease in crime rates (evidence of authentic biblical justice, as described in Isaiah 58), supernatural blessing on local commerce, healing of the brokenhearted (the alienated and disenfranchised), and an exporting of kingdom righteousness. To this end, a catalytic core of saints typically embrace a lifestyle of persistent repentance, humility, prayer and sacrificial servanthood that attracts the favor and presence of God, and breaks the predominating influences of the ruling power structures of human flesh and the devil.”

If this new definition of spiritual transformation process sounds complex and obscure, it is. Unless you have been steeped in neo-evangelical doctrines, this will sound like mish-mash. To aid the reader, below is a nutshell synopsis of the new doctrines of transformation.

1. The term spiritual transformation process is used to describe a planned, intentional Second Reformation (also called New Apostolic Reformation. An early proposal for a second Protestant reformation appeared in The Emerging Order (1979) by New Ager Jeremy Rifkin, who called for a re-definition of Genesis 1 to create a stewardship mandate for a dominion over the earth.8 Rick Warren, of purpose-driven fame, positively referenced Rifkin’s proposal for this new Reformation.9 Just this year was launched what he calls the Second Reformation. 10 Other evangelical leaders calling for this new reformation. (Names left out purposely).

2) This spiritaul transformation process is not personal but is applied corporately to groups and entities. One example is: Social transformation was defined as seeking positive change in the whole of human life materially, socially and spiritually, by recovering our true identity as human beings created in the image of God and discovering our true vocation as productive stewards, faithfully caring for our world and its people.

3) This transformation is to be accomplished by a mission strategy of doing whatever it takes to launch political, social, and cultural reforms on a global scale. A philosophy of the end justifies the means has been embraced to accomplish these colossal goals.

4) Extremely sophisticated psycho-social marketing techniques are employed to facilitate this spiritual transformation process.

5) State-of-the-art statistical measurement and assessment methods evaluate this transformation judging effectiveness by pre-set, man-made criteria.

6) A plethora of intricate spiritual activities with new names, new techniques, new methodologies, and new doctrines purportedly cause transformation to take place in the heavenlies and then on earth.16 These include strategic-level spiritual warfare, identificational repentance, prayer evangelism, on-site praying, spiritual mapping, prayer walks, labyrinths, spiritual formation, and a host of other newly-concocted doctrines with corresponding activities. (The reader is challenged to find any of these in the Bible.)
7) A re-alignment of church hierarchical structures, not unlike network marketing, is said to be essential for transformation to take place.

8) These new authority and accountability structures must be superimposed between believers and God. The model is touted as a return to the early New Testament model, in which churches met in homes. In reality it is a data-driven model with a top-down hierarchy of authority and control. It is variously called cell church, G12, shepherding, House2House, etc.

9) This spiritual transformation process dialectically thrives on a diet of constant change which is accelerating rapidly.19 Continuous change in the church is pointe to as revival despite the fact that it utilizes business marketing methods such as Total Quality Management.

10) The claim is made that submitting to and participating in this radical and comprehensive transformation is necessary to fulfill the Great Commission. Thus transformation” has been inextricably linked to the modern missions movement.
11) This transformation is said to be incomplete until the Bride of Christ is perfected on earth and God’s kingdom is seen on earth as it is in heaven.

12) Therefore, believers are told they are co-creators and co-redeemers, renewing the earth through their various transformative activities.
Neo-evangelical transformation” doctrines integrate Theosophy with Christianity for a hybrid new orthodoxy, sometimes termed the “emergent” church. Therefore, this transformation is fertile ground for all new forms of ecumenism, easily finding common ground with both cults and the occult. Popular neo-evangelical leader Leonard Sweet laid out this broader concept of transformational ecumenism in his 1991 book Quantum Spirituality

What is the Purpose of Suffering

Trials, Tribulations And Afflictions

Ps. 25:18 “Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.”

Jesus was perfect and had pharasees (religious spirit) and accusers.  The pharasees and accusers put Him on the cross for our sins.  You are not perfect and when following the Lord and being obedient, you will have pharasees and accusers at your door.

Romans 5:3-5 “More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

The purpose of suffering is to makes us a better person – more Christ like.  Through suffering we run to Christ to sustain us and through Him, if we allow Him, the suffering produces endurance, character, hope that will not put us to shame.  Not only that, you will see the miracles of God helping you through the suffering … especially for the gospel of God.

1 Peter 4:12-17 “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. …”

The purpose of suffering through persecution and hardship for the gospel do happen when sharing in Jesus’ suffering.  In 1 Peter 4:12-17 you see to rejoice in our sufferings and that glory is revealed.  I believe suffering helps humble us and keep pride out of our hearts or remove it if it did enter in our hearts.  We serve a God and there is a roaring devour to eat us up especially when sharing the gospel with others.

Christians are experiencing trials, tribulations and afflictions of all kinds. Suffering is so contrary to our natural fleshly response to suffering.  Afflictions many times is a result of sanctification – dying to self. Times of greatest difficulty and disappointment often lead to repentance and change.  Afflictions are to draw our attention to God and His Word.

What is the value of affliction or the purpose of suffering? In Psalm 119:71 the Psalmist says, It is “good for me that I have been afflicted;that I might learn thy statutes.”

6But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thine hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face.

7And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.

8And he said, Hagar, Sarai’s maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.

9And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.

10And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.

11And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.”

Pride (Job. 33:14-29)

Job 33:14-29 “14For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. 15In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;  16Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, 17That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.  18He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword. 19He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain: 20So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat. 21His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out. 22Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers. 23If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness: 24Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom  25His flesh shall be fresher than a child’s: he shall return to the days of his youth:  26He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness. 27He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not  28He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light. 29Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,”

7And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon.

8And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel: eighteen years, all the children of Israel that were on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead.

9Moreover the children of Ammon passed over Jordan to fight also against Judah, and against Benjamin, and against the house of Ephraim; so that Israel was sore distressed.

10And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, saying, We have sinned against thee, both because we have forsaken our God, and also served Baalim.”

Forgetting God (1 Sam. 12:9-10)

10And they cried unto the LORD, and said, We have sinned, because we have forsaken the LORD, and have served Baalim and Ashtaroth: but now deliver us out of the hand of our enemies, and we will serve thee.”

Healing Lost

The Bible says, “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty…..” Matthew 12:43-44

Don’t let the enemy gain reentry into your life. We he comes seeking rest, Put out your “NO VACANCY” sign! Keep your house filled! Here are some practical steps to take to be sure, you are filled when he comes.

How Healing Lost: How do you keep your house filled and/or protected (you are the temple of the Holy Spirit)?:

1. Pay attention to your thought life especially thoughts of the past. The past should stay in the past.

What does that mean?  Continue to look at the promises of God – He Came to Heal All Diseases Ps. 102:2.  Some people reverse this.  Their faith waxes weak while they look at their symptoms and forget the promises of God.  God’s Word is the only solid basis for our faith.  But the enemy, after you get healed, will throw symptoms and you cannot look at the symptoms and allow doubt to come back in that God healed you.  The enemy throws symptoms to get your eyes off of Christ so that you will loose faith and look at the symptoms instead of the Lord.  You stand on the Word that Jesus is the Healer and that you’re healed.

Reasons Healing Lost: We will miss or loose our healing if we allow our symptoms to hinder us from expecting what His Word promise is.

Hebrews 11:1 faith is the things not seen.  Symptoms are not eternal but God’s Word is eternal and alive to do what it says to do.  Spiritual Warfare is not believing those symptoms but believing God’s Word that Christ died on the cross for our salvation and sickness and disease.  So stand and believe without wavering.

2. Why Healing Lost: Make sure you are right with God.  Our redemptive blessings are conditional after we hear the Gospel.  Jesus said repent ye and believe the gospel.  Jesus great commandment has to do with relationships with God, others and self.  Check to see if you have any bitterness towards anyone, are you in fear and out of faith, etc.  Disease comes from separation and separation opens the door for the enemy to inflict.  James says to confess your faults to one another…. that ye might be healed.  If I regard iniquity in my heart the Lod will not hear me.

3. Areas you are weak, memorize specific scriptures to fight the fiery darts! Example: I used to project fear for tomorrow. I learned to cast my cares to the Lord according to 1 Peter 5:7. Where do fiery darts come from? Jesus withstood Satan’s temptation by using scripture. The word is a mirror to the soul (James 1:22-25); it is a lamp unto the feet for guidance( Psalm 119:105); it is two-edge sword laying bare the heart (Heb 4:12); it is food for the spirit (1 Pet 2:2; Matt 4:4) No person can keep up deliverance apart from the Word of God as a primary cause in his life!

4. Put on the Whole Armour of God The Christian’s spiritual armour is set forth in Ephesians 6:10-18. There are seven pieces: (1) Loins girt about with truth (2) The breastplate of righteousness (3) Feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (4) The shield of faith (5) The helmet of salvation, (6) The sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God, and (7) Praying in the spirit! Pay special attention to the helmet for guarding your thought life. Most demons seeking to re-enter assail the thoughts. Become watchful of any thought that could be considered negative; they are from the enemy. Separate their thoughts from your own. Refuse the thoughts they give you and replace them with positive thoughts. (See Phil 4:8) Resist the devil at the first sign of attack.

5. Make Positive Confessions – Power in the Tongue brings life or death to others or to self. You can self curse or curse others with your words. Are you a negative person? Do you see the world half empty instead of half full? Negative confessions are lack of faith but doubt and unbelief which characterize demonic influence. Positive confessions are faith expressed. Any other confession will open the door for the enemy. (See Mark 11:23). Do you speak negative words over your spouse, your children and so on?  It is more than positive confession but it is trusting and believing in God’s Word and then confessing it.  It has to be true  in your heart – a reality of truth.

6. Know Who You Are In the Kingdom of God! Why Did God Create You? Who are you in the Kingdom of God? What is your Purpose? What is your calling? What is your destiny? What is the Body of Christ’s purpose? What is the Lord wanting to restore? Coming Soon!

7. Crucify the Flesh Take up your cross daily and follow Jesus. (Luke 9:23) Break old habit patterns. If fleshy appetites, desires and lusts are not brought to the cross a way for demons to return will be left open (Gal 5: 19-24). From Romans to Jude is all about Santification. What is Sanctification? Definition of Santification:

Sanctification is that continuous operation of the Holy Spirit, by which the holy disposition imparted in regeneration is maintained and strengthened.

8. Be Willing To Go Into The Fire!

What are areas you are not able to still walk through? Make a list to discuss. See notes!

9. Develop a Life of continuous Praise and Prayer Praise silences the enemy. Praise is not an attitude of heart; praise is the expression unto God of thankfulness, adoration and joy by speaking, singing, shouting, dancing, leaping, playing musical entrustments, clapping the hands, etc. Pray in the sprit (in tongues) and also in the understanding. (1 Cor 14:14). Pray without ceasing (1 Thess 5:17). Get a journal and write down your victories, blessings, etc. This is helpful when times are tough. Coming Soon!

10. Maintain a Life of Fellowship and Spiritual Ministry!  It is the sheep that wanders from the flock that is most endangered. Find and fulfill your function within the body. (See 1 Cor 12:7-14) Keep yourself under authority. Coming Soon!

11. Commit Yourself Totally to Christ Determine that every thought, word and action will reflect the very nature of Christ. Abide in Christ that the fruit of the Spirit might come forth in abundance. Demon spirits are enemies of the fruit of the spirit. Faith and trust in God is the greatest weapon against the devil and his lies. (See Eph. 6:16)

12. Choosing friends who are like minded. Think of times you were influenced negatively from others who are not like minded.

Look what the Bible says about choosing friends

“Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE, says the Lord. AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you. And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me, Says the Lord Almighty” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18 NASBR)

“Do not be deceived: ‘Evil company corrupts good habits.’ Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.” 1 Corinthians 15:33-34

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:2 NASBR)

“Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation” (1 Peter 2:12 NASBR)

“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm” (Proverbs 13:20 NASBR)

John said in 3 John 2 “Beloved, I wish above all tings that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

That means submit ourselves to God before He says “resist the devil,” because no one can successfully resist the devil until he submits himself to God.

The condition of heart that was responsible for the coming of those diseases as mentioned in Deut. 28 is not the right condition for their removal.  In other words, the condition of the heart that was responsible for the curse in that day is not the condition of heart in which to come to Him for the removal of the curse in our day.

Sanctification Process

Sanctification Process

Sanctification Process

sanctification scriptures

“If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the Father chasteneth not?… God chasteneth us for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness” (Hebrews 12:7, 10)

and

“If a man… purge himself… he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified and meet for the Master’s use, prepared unto every good work” (II Timothy 2:21)

To Sanctify is to set apart from the World and to consecrate, to God and to His service.

The temple at Jerusalem was holy, that is to say, it was consecrated, dedicated to God that it might serve Him as a dwelling place.  Our bodies are temples for the Holy Spirit – the Spirit of the Most High God resides in us.

Again in this day, God is forming for Himself a holy people, and it is that we may torn part of them that Jesus sets us free. He “gave Himself for us that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a people for His own possession, zealous of good works” (Titus 2:14, ASV).

It is the Lord who breaks the chains by which Satan would hold us in bondage.

God chastens us “for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness,”(Hebrews 12:10), and that we may be sanctified, “meet for the Master’s use” (II Timothy 2:21).

Sanctification process is not something which you can accomplish yourself; it cannot even be produced by God in you as something which you can possess and contemplate in yourself. No, it is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of holiness alone who can communicate His holiness to you and renew it continually. Therefore it is by faith you can become partakers of his holiness. Having understood that Jesus has been made unto you of God sanctification (I Corinthians 1:30).

But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
