New-age gurus teach us to seek comfort in meditation. They teach us to align our chakras for better mental and physical wellbeing. They teach us we can master the art of astral projection, leave our bodies, and willfully navigate the spirit realm. In turn, we can gain a oneness with the universe. How absolutely wonderful… …what are we going to do, meditate away our need for salvation?
Gaining a oneness with the universe is pointless when we come to realize this universe, because of sin, will be destroyed by fire (Isaiah 13:13; 34:4; 51:6; Zephaniah 1:18; 2 Peter 3:10; Revelation 21:1). Many prominent atheists have already come to admit this fact. Atheistic scientists have for quite some time begun to teach us the death of the universe is inevitable. They teach us how billions of years in the distant future the universe will implode in a fury of cataclysmic retraction. Nice theory, Mr. Scientist. The irony is, God told us first.
Not only has the bible been teaching the destruction of the universe long before modern scientific theory arrived on college campus, but the bible has been teaching us it will occur much sooner than our current theoretical analysis’ have predicted.
But we are not talking about science here. We’re talking about the religion of spiritualism. The many experiences these modern new-age philosophers indorse revolve around the idea of seeking spiritual enlightenment. They seek to know and experience something greater than the physical realm. All of which is possible, but at what cost?
When we seek to know the mysteries of the universe while simultaneously rejecting the words of the Creator of the universe, we will forever be opening ourselves up to tremendous spiritual distress.
Seeking a spiritual experience outside of the truth revealed to us by the Lord Jesus Christ will only result in an invocation of deceiving spirits presenting themselves as angels of light (Galatians 1:8; Ephesians 6:12).
This spiritual enlightenment may seem wonderful to our earthly senses, but in most cases – if not all cases – we will be encouraging deceitful spirits to play upon our every new-age polytheistic whim.
This false sense of inner-peace outside of the will of God will only last so long in this worldly physical existence. What the many new-age guru’s fail to realize or teach their gullible sheeple is how this meditation is a form of prayer and worship of false gods.
If you begin praying and meditating to someone other than your heavenly Father via the atoning work of Christ, you are going to get exactly what you asked for – spirits posing as angels of light.
“And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14; NKJ)
The way we are being taught to meditate is all wrong. Do not attempt to silence your mind leaving it vacant. Instead, meditate on the love of God and fill your thoughts with His presence.
“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)
It is only He who can bring true inner peace.
