If you could pick just one song that best described your life, what would it be? Mine would be Judy Collins, “Both sides Now.” Even as a teenager listening to it, it had a sense about it that made me feel much older than I was. Now a few decades later, it still has the same impact on me — even more so. The words, “old friends are acting stange, they shake their heads, they say I’ve changed,” ring true. I have changed. Being weak in body, spirit or soul changes a person. It makes us a stranger to those who may have remembered us differently in our younger days when we had strength and stamina — or/and the resourses to help others. The words, “So many things I would have done, but clouds got in my way,” speak the greater part of my life. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people who have been blessed with an ability to bounce back after or during a rough time. My greatest strength — empathy — has also been my greatest weakness.
It’s a song of youth. One of seeing the world in rose colored glasses. Believing you know everything and finally later in life, seeing you really know nothing at all.
We believe anything and everybody when we are young. Only to grow up and realize so much is really a delusion.
Without sounding melodramatic: I really don’t know life at all.

For anyone who may be worrying if May 21, 2011 is the day of judgment, Do not fear man’s delusions and lies. If Jesus said of the end of time, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Matthew 24:36), then why oh why are we to take the word of man?
You see, cults are made of such stuff.
These things bring reproach for the true believer of Christ when the world (media) calls these fanatics christians. A true believer will not swallow everyhting that comes down the pike. They will test things according to the word of God and they will not fear the rebuke of man for doing so, they would rather walk alone than walk among those who are not taking the time to discern by the Word of God.
By the way, Terry Jones (the famous pastor in favor of making a big issue of burning the Koran), was a date setter before he got all the attention. He was nothing more than just a little old man sitting at his kitchen table setting dates to the end of the world. They came and went. I would love to be able to know what some of his followers who have left him have to say.

Cults, Learning to Discern
I may have this up somewhere else on the blog, but can not find it. However, I want to use it to point out that many of the things in this video are the very things that a lot of churches use. If you are experiencing any of these things in your church, please ask God to give you HIS discernment, test everything that is goes on around you. If something does not feel quite right, it just may be the Lord trying to show you what is going on behind the veil of deceit.
Please note: NOT every church or those in the ministry are out to decieve. Sometimes they may not even know what they do. In that case, try asking God to show you what to do and what to speak concerning any concerns you may have.

False Revival, False Signs and Wonders, Kundalini
False Revivals, False Signs and Wonders, Kundilini
Most if not all, we are seeing withing the church concerning revival and spirit-filled manifestations are actually Kundilini at work. The church has become complacent and apathetic in not testing things. By doing so, she has allowed demons to invade where truth wants to prevail.
