Do you find yourself camping out in the New Age Spirituality section at the bookstore? Do you like exploring the ever-expanding tapestry of made-to-order spiritual wisdom? Right now, the popular topic is about how this year, particularly the month of December, will be the beginning of the next stage of our spiritual evolution and what you must do to take that step. Have you ever stopped to consider how our spirits can evolve when human evolutionary theory is based upon the assumption that we don’t have any… that there is only nature not supernature. New Ager, doesn’t that raise a red flag for you?
Do you believe in a universal cosmic conscience to which we all belong? I submit to you that you are right to feel like there is except this “conscience” made the universe and is way more personal because it is God and He wants to have a personal relationship with you. What you are feeling is that innate sense God built into you that, yes, He does indeed exist! Don’t let self-prescribed spiritual gurus with their self-defeating “wisdom” take that opportunity away from you.
With all of this hype and misinformation floating around about December 21, 2012, I wanted to be sure to tell you that the only “2012” you need to be concerned with is Revelation 20:12.
And I saw the dead, the small and the great, stand before God. And books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
It’s important for you to know that if you find yourself standing in this line, it’s too late.
You can avoid being there by humbling yourself and accepting what you already know to be true – that Jesus Christ is Lord, forgiver of sins and Savior as He claims to be.
True spiritual enlightenment. In reality, the New Age “enlightenment” you are learning about is nothing but the darkest darkness [Acts 26:18, Mat 6:22-23]. This is why Jesus sends those of us who follow Him out,
to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’
[Acts 26:18 ESV]
Christ is the only true Light of the World and as a follower of Christ, you can share that same Light [John 8:12, 9:5, Matt 5:14].
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
[John 8:12 ESV]
This is true enlightenment, the opening of our eyes to the truth of our standing before God and how so desperately we need the Salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ. Only a loving God would do something like this.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
[John 3:16-21 ESV]
Now please understand this may be the only chance you have to hear the Gospel and learn the truth of your standing before God and what you must do for Salvation and eternal life. If you go on from here and turn your back on Christ because you are expecting something to happen in December of 2012, I’m sure that Satan won’t disappoint you.
