Alice Bailey 10 Point Plan to Destroy Christianity

Alice Bailey is known as one of the founders of the New Age Movement. She was a writer who lived between 1880 and 1949 and she is the person who is known for creating the term “New Age” in her books which mostly focus on the subject of theosophy.
Britannica describes theosophy as an occult movement originating in the 19th century with roots that can be traced to ancient Gnosticism. The term theosophy is derived from the Greek theos (“god”) and sophia (“wisdom”), is generally understood to mean “divine wisdom.”… The international New Age movement … originated among independent theosophical groups

Alice Bailey is known as one of the prophetesses of the New Age Movement. Her teachings and writings are viewed as foundational and authoritative within the New Age Movement. She described the majority of her work as having been telepathically dictated to her by a Master of Wisdom, or spirit entity identified as Djwal Khul.

Alice Bailey’s writings are so revered and authoritative to such an extent that her New Age views and philosophies have a social, spiritual and political impact on politicians, various nations and also the United Nations. Alice Bailey also founded The Lucis Trust which was formerly known as Lucifer Publishing Company in 1922 and her organization has influence within the United Nations.

One of the main agendas of the New Age Movement is to become the dominant religion or lifestyle within the entire world. Therefore in order for New Age philosophies to become dominant, then all other religions especially Christianity must either be destroyed or become less of a spiritual influence within society and in the individual lives of people. It is from this desire to see the dominance of the New Age movement that Alice Bailey wrote a 10 Point Plan / Charter to destroy Christianity so that New Age philosophies may become the one world religion for the world

The main purpose of the 10 Point Charter / Strategy is to either destroy Christianity or to convert the nations to New Age philosophies.
The 10 Point Charter by Alice Bailey is as follows:

  1. TAKE GOD AND PRAYER OUT OF THE EDUCATION SYSTEM
  2. REDUCE PARENTAL AUTHORITY OVER THE CHILDREN
  3. DESTROY THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN FAMILY STRUCTURE OR THE TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN FAMILY STRUCTURE
  4. IF SEX IS FREE, THEN MAKE ABORTION LEGAL AND MAKE IT EASY
  5. MAKE DIVORCE EASY AND LEGAL, FREE PEOPLE FROM THE CONCEPT OF MARRIAGE FOR LIFE
  6. MAKE HOMOSEXUALITY AN ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE
  7. DEBASE ART, MAKE IT RUN MAD
  8. USE MEDIA TO PROMOTE AND CHANGE MINDSETS
  9. CREATE AN INTERFAITH MOVEMENT
  10. GET GOVERNMENTS TO MAKE ALL THESE LAW AND GET THE CHURCH TO ENDORSE THESE CHANGES.

Let us bear in mind that the above 10 Point Plan was formulated in the early 20th Century –- many decades before such a strategy was even conceivable within culture and society at the time.
If one makes an objective observation it would be easy to conclude that this 10 Point Plan is definitely being implemented at the highest cultural, spiritual and political levels within the world.
Why? Probably because Alice Bailey is regarded by New Agers and occultists as one of the “prophetesses” of the New Age Movement.

1 Timothy 4:1
Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons

 

1 Timothy 4:1 reveals that mankind is able to receive teachings from demons or deceitful spirits. Since Alice Bailey claimed to receive inspiration for her New Age / theosophy writings from a spirit being by the name of Djwal Khul it is evident there is a demonic inspiration to the New Age philosophies and practices.
Ephesians 6:12 says: For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

 

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT THE 10 POINT PLAN?

  1. TAKE GOD AND PRAYER OUT OF THE EDUCATION SYSTEM
    The Bible is clear that prayer is essential in the life of every human being. We have access to God 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The Bible says that we should “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
    The attempt to remove God and prayer out of the education system is a spiritual attack on the young generation. It is the devil’s attempt to change the minds of the young and lead them away from God and from prayer.
    Instead we notice that teachings such as the theory of evolution are taught to children in order to remove the concept of God from children’s minds.

  2. REDUCE PARENTAL AUTHORITY OVER THE CHILDREN
    Reducing parental authority over children is an attack on the family. Proverbs 13:24 says “Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him
    When parental authority is undermined and reduced, this will gradually create an undisciplined young generation that does not respect authority. Respect for authority by children begins at parental level.
    It is therefore the responsibility of parents to exercise godly or Biblical authority over their children and to also train the children in the values and principles of the Lord (Proverbs 22:6).

  3. DESTROY THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN FAMILY STRUCTURE OR THE TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN FAMILY STRUCTURE
    There have been many blatant and subtle attempts to destroy the traditional Christian family. Examples are: the promotion of sexual immorality which leads to a growth in teenage pregnancies, adultery, fornication and the like. Sexual immorality destroys marriages, creates a growth in single mothers, increases divorce rates.
    Other examples include the promotion of same-sex marriages which are clear attempts to destroy the traditional Christian family.
    The Bible teaches us that since the creation of the first man and first woman, marriage is between a male and a female (Genesis 2:18-25).
    Within the traditional Christian family, the husband has a role; the wife has a role and so do the children (Ephesians 5:22-33).

  4. IF SEX IS FREE, THEN MAKE ABORTION LEGAL AND MAKE IT EASY
    According to statistics, more than 40 million unborn babies are aborted every year around the world. This is clear evidence just by the statistics alone that abortion in this world has become easier and “convenient” due to its legality in many countries.
    But is abortion Biblical? No! God does not support abortion. The Bible says that God knows us whilst we are in our mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5). An unborn child is a unique person even though he/she temporarily resides in the mother’s womb.
    The promotion of sex through the media and the like has contributed to sexual immorality in the world. It has removed the principle that sex is only to be conducted within the confines of marriage. Sex outside of marriage which ironically is supported by Alice Bailey’s 10 Point Strategy is likely to create more “unwanted” pregnancies which result in increased abortions which the 10 Point Strategy also supports.
    An unborn baby is still a human life that God has created and which He values very much (Psalms 139:13-18). However, every year, more human lives (though unborn) die because of abortion alone, than any disease in the world.

  5. MAKE DIVORCE EASY AND LEGAL, FREE PEOPLE FROM THE CONCEPT OF MARRIAGE FOR LIFE
    Divorce rates worldwide continue to rise. Indeed as we look at our world today, the institution of marriage is no longer sacred or respected. Many couples continue to lose their sense of commitment to each other.
    Yet the Bible says that God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16). Marriage parallels Christ’s relationship with the Church. Jesus Christ is the bridegroom and the Church is the bride (Ephesians 5:25-30). Therefore an attack on marriage is an attack on God who created the institution of marriage.
    In the beginning, God created marriage when He created Adam and decided that it was not good for the man to be alone but that man should have a helper comparable to him. This is why God created Eve and created marriage so that the man and woman would become one flesh (Genesis 2:18-25).

  6. MAKE HOMOSEXUALITY AN ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE
    Even though Alice Bailey wrote her 10 Point Charter many decades before homosexuality became accepted by the world, it is clear that the push to make homosexuality an alternative lifestyle has gained momentum. The gay rights movement is a very powerful movement in the world today.
    Even churches are ordaining homosexuals as priests or pastors thereby accepting homosexuality within the church itself.
    However, the Bible does not change; God’s word still remains the same in relation to sexual immorality and homosexuality. Leviticus 18:22 says: You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

  7. DEBASE ART, MAKE IT RUN MAD
    How does one debase art and make it run mad? Today we live in a world were pornography and nudity is viewed as an “art” or form of artistic expression. We live in a world where promiscuity and immorality of all kinds is promoted and celebrated in music and film.
    What is Alice Bailey’s goal with debasing art? The purpose of art should be to glorify God and edify others. However, debasing art will lead to corrupt minds and a corrupt form of expression. Instead of people being edified by art, they are instead defiled by it.
    The plan of “debasing art” and making it run mad is an expression of the defilement that is already in the soul of man. The Bible says that the heart of man is desperately wicked and who can understand it (Jeremiah 17:9).
    In Mark 7:20-23 Jesus says the following… “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. 21 For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, 22 coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. 23 All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”
    It is therefore the case that the kind of art that we see in the world today is an expression of what is in the heart of men. It is therefore evident that the form of artistic expression we see in music and film is just as the vices and sins that Christ mentions in Mark 7:20-23.

  8. USE MEDIA TO PROMOTE AND CHANGE MINDSETS
    The media is one of the fastest ways to change people’s mindsets on a massive scale. The media has enormous power to persuade and change perceptions and even cultures.
    In the world the media is mostly controlled by people who are not born again Christians. Even before the television had become a device that was owned in every household and well before the Internet and social media platforms existed, Alice Bailey understood the power of the media in the future and how it could be promoted to change mindsets.
    The media can be used as an instrument for both good and bad. However, because most of the media is controlled by unbelievers or people who support Alice Bailey’s New Age beliefs, the media is being used to support the New Age agenda.
    Romans 12:2 says: Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
    Therefore we are not to conform to the mindset of the world, but instead we should allow God’s word and teachings to transform our thinking so that we know the will of God.

  9. CREATE AN INTERFAITH MOVEMENT
    Alice Bailey’s advice to create an interfaith movement is one of the main agendas of the New Age, which may eventually lead to the creation of a one world religion. An interfaith movement promotes the notion that all faiths or religions must become one and look for “common ground” and discard their differences. It is the ecumenical view that all religions in the world can unite and become one.
    It is certain in this day and age that there is a subtle but emerging movement that exists within different faiths from Christianity to Buddhism to Hinduism, which seeks to promote ecumenism at the expense of the truth.
    Therefore in the name of unity, Christians are advised to compromise God’s truth for the purpose of being united.
    False doctrines will always divide people between those who believe the truth and those who believe what is false. Furthermore the authentic gospel of Jesus Christ will also divide people. 
    1 Corinthians 1:18 says: For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    Jesus Himself knew that His message and His arrival on earth would divide many people because the truth will always divide people between those who follow the truth and those who follow a lie (Matthew 10:34-39).

  10. GET GOVERNMENTS TO MAKE ALL THESE LAW AND GET THE CHURCH TO ENDORSE THESE CHANGES.
    Today governments all over the world are legalizing such things as abortion, homosexuality, beastiality, same sex marriage and even addictive drugs such as marijuana. Even though the Bible disagrees with such lifestyles, there is a growing trend where governments are legalizing lifestyles that directly oppose the scriptures. This is because the influence of the New Age movement is growing as it seeks to achieve Alice Bailey’s 10 Point Plan agenda. Psalms 119:11 says: I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

 

God Still Remains In Control
It is important to realize that despite all that is happening in the world, God still remains in control and He is not surprised by what is happening in the world. God will ultimately bring an end to all forms of evil at His appointed time. The devil has tried many times to destroy Christianity but ultimately he will fail.
Our role is to ensure that we are focused on Jesus Christ and that the word of God is deeply indwelt in us. Without the word of God and the Holy Spirit to guide us, we will surely be deceived by the great deception that is growing in the world.

 

What is the Illuminati and Do They Exist?

The Illuminati is believed to be a group or secret society of the most influential and powerful elite in the world. It is believed that the Illuminati has been existing for many centuries and they maintain the same bloodlines.

It’s also believed that the Illuminati also consists of branches of other secret societies such as freemasonry and these secret societies consist of international bankers, top government officials, leaders in the media, entertainment, sports and energy sectors.
It is believed that the Illuminati controls all major sectors of the world from the entertainment industry to the world financial markets and also the political world.

The name Illuminati comes from the Latin word illuminatur which means the “enlightened”.
This group believes that they are more “enlightened” than the rest of the world. They believe that they possess secret knowledge about many issues including knowledge of the future and world events. They believe that they are meant to dominate and control the masses and the world systems.
Therefore most people theorize that this group will be responsible for ushering the New World Order where there will be a one world government, one world currency and a one world religion.

It is believed that the group prefers to operate covertly but uses various symbols as a spiritual method of communication and worship. Some of the symbols most associated with the Illuminati include occult symbols, triangles, pentagrams, the all-seeing eye – pyramids – the number 666 and symbolism associated with Egyptian mythology. It is also believed that the group is heavily linked to many occult practices and that the Illuminati ultimately serves at the pleasure of the devil.

Is the Illuminati mentioned in the Bible?
The Illuminati is not specifically mentioned in the Bible. However the Bible does speak of a type of globalism or new world order scenario that will exist in the future or in the end times.
The presence of the Antichrist will usher in a one world government, a one world currency and a one world religion where the Antichrist will ultimately demand to be worshiped (Revelation 17:1-18; Revelation 13:1-14).
The devil is the master of all evil in the world and he is the creator of the demonic world systems that operate in the world.
The Illuminati and many other groups and individuals who perform wicked acts to dominate, manipulate and control the world are merely puppets of the devil who is their puppet master.

How should Christians respond to secret societies?
Christians need to always remember that it is God who is ultimately in control of all things and all situations. There is nothing that will happen in this world that will ever surprise God. There is nothing that is hidden from God.
Therefore God is the alpha and omega. Everything begins and ends with God.
This means that whatever the devil and his puppets may try in their attempt to control and dominate the world will ultimately end in failure.
God will remain God and the devil and all his followers will be cast in the lake of fire.

The role of every Christian believer is to continue to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and the need for people to repent and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour (Matthew 28:19-20).
Christians are also to expose evil in all its forms and warn people from being deceived by the devil and his followers (Ephesians 5:11-12).

What is the New World Order?

The New World Order is defined as the period in time where there will be a one-world religion, one-world money system and a one-world government. It is also known as the age or era of Globalization.

There is the theory that an elite group of influential people, especially those people associated with secret societies such as freemasonry and the Illuminati are linked towards systematically and gradually introducing and implementing the New World Order system.

The ideology or philosophy of the New World Order or Globalization is that of bringing supposed unity, oneness of belief systems and an end to human suffering for all mankind.
Therefore to achieve such a goal, all nations must socially, economically and politically adopt the same value systems.

Socially and spiritually, different religions or cultural beliefs must be gradually eliminated and a one-world religion system must eventually be embraced. For example, a culture of tolerance and acceptance should be embraced in relation to such issues as homosexuality or transgenderism even if these lifestyles contradict Christian beliefs and Biblical values.
Therefore the ideology of the New World Order system will attempt to remove any systems or beliefs that oppose its own so that the New World Order becomes the dominant value system.

Economically, many nations will be forced to adopt a one-currency system under the New World Order. Therefore a borderless society will exist. The world will literally become a global village and the one-currency system will be the strongest evidence that the era of Globalization has arrived. Therefore, under a New World Order, attempting to economically operate outside a one-currency system would be difficult for any business or nation.

Politically, many nations around the world will be under a one-world government. Therefore control of the entire world will be officially centralized to an elite and powerful body of people who will make political, social and economic decisions for the entire human race. Individual nations will no longer have autonomy but will be accountable to a centralized one-world government.

The idea & philosophy behind the New World Order is also reminiscent of the ideology behind the Tower of Babel where mankind believed that anything was possible as long as they were united with a common cause (Genesis 11:1-9).
However, unity without God is dangerous. Unity that is based on a false philosophical system eventually leads to utter rebellion against God.

Therefore Globalization or the New World Order system may outwardly appear to be beneficial and noble for mankind, but the root inspiration behind this ideology must be closely scrutinized, not only from a worldly viewpoint but also from a spiritual perspective.

Scriptures such as Revelations 13:1-18, Revelations 14:9-12 and Revelations 20:4-6 refer to the Antichrist beast system that will dominate the world in the future. The beast system is very much likened to the New World Order because of the gradual and systematic attempt to introduce a one-world religion, one-world money system and a one-world government.

Biblically, the chief architect of the New World Order system is the devil himself. Therefore the New World Order is a prelude to the ushering of the Antichrist.
The Bible describes Satan as being the “god of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4) or the “ruler of this world” (John 12:31).
Satan once tempted Jesus by offering Christ “the kingdoms of the world and their glory” if Jesus would agree to worship him (Matthew 4:8-10).
The devil therefore has massive influence and control on the systems of this world. Satan is responsible for creating many philosophies, ideologies, false religions and economic systems that manage this world that we live in. The devil is therefore able to influence people, cultures, religions and governments. Globalization or the New World Order will not bring freedom, unity or an end to human suffering. Instead it will introduce the Great Tribulation through an Antichrist dictatorship.

One thing history should teach us is that since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, there is no earthly government that can bring peace, unity or an end to any kind of human suffering.
Therefore, if mankind looks towards human controlled governments with the hope of ending human suffering and becoming united, then such a hope will be in total vain.
Therefore the New World Order offers a false hope and false promises.

True unity, oneness and the end of human suffering will occur when mankind embraces God and the Kingdom of God through accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
A life with God and a life in the kingdom of Heaven is the ideal lifestyle for mankind.

 

 

7 Facts About The Mark of the Beast

According to the Book of Revelations, the mark of the beast is a seal or mark that is literally placed in the hand or forehead of a person.
Now there have been several speculations concerning the description of the mark of the beast. Some people speculate that the mark of the beast could be some sort of tattoo; others speculate that it might be a technological implant like a microchip; while others say that the mark of the beast is metaphorical for the state of the mind and the heart of mankind

However, there are 7 Biblical facts about the mark of the beast. They are as follows:

Fact # 1
The mark of the beast will be given to those people who support and worship the Antichrist. Therefore the mark of the beast will act as a seal for those who believe in the antichrist / beast system and those people who make a decision to worship the Antichrist.
Revelation 13:16Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead

Fact # 2
The mark of the beast will be used to conduct economic and business transactions such as buying and selling. Therefore the mark of the beast will identify between those who can transact and trade in the antichrist / beast system and those who cannot trade.
Revelations 13:17So that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.

Fact # 3
The false prophet / the 2nd beast is the one who causes and convinces people to embrace the mark of the beast. The false prophet will convince people of every social and economic status to receive the mark of the beast from the rich to the poor and from the young to the old.
Revelations 13:16Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead

Fact # 4
The mark is literally and physically placed in the hand or in the forehead of a person. The Bible text indicates that the mark is not a metaphor or a symbol and neither is its placing on the hand or forehead metaphorical.
The fact that the Bible says that a person cannot buy or sell without the having the mark itself, indicates that the mark is something literal and physical because the mark would have to be detected whether electronically or visually for someone to be able to buy or sell.

Fact # 5
The mark of the beast will exist or be given during the 7 year Great Tribulation period. Therefore the 7 year Tribulation will occur after the rapture but before the return of Jesus Christ.
Read Matthew 24:21-22 and Matthew 24:29-31

Fact # 6
The people who refuse the mark of the beast will be persecuted and most likely killed for not only refusing the mark of the beast but also for refusing to worship the Antichrist.
Therefore whoever worships God and follows Jesus Christ during the Great Tribulation will be under immense persecution. However those who have been persecuted will eventually reap the benefits of being faithful to God according to Revelation 24:4

Fact # 7
It’s not possible to get the mark of the beast right now. Certain conditions need to be in place in order to receive the mark of the beast.
a) The rapture has to occur
b) The false prophet and the Antichrist himself have to appear
c) The time period has to be the Great Tribulation

 

Hopefully this information is useful to you in helping to understand the mark of the beast.

5 Signs of the End Times / The Last Days

Are we living in the last days? Is the end of the world sooner than we think and what are the signs of the end times?

There is no doubt that there are many events that are happening in the world today that point to the fact that we are possibly living closer to the end times.
There are basically five important signs or categories that can help us to discern whether or not we are living in the end times.

 

 

1. The Natural Signs
Jesus spoke about great earthquakes and that there would be famines in various places and deadly diseases around the world.
When we look at the world today, we hear of record breaking floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and fierce weather patterns happening all over the world. We also hear of incurable diseases that are killing millions of people and Jesus says that such weather patterns “are but the beginning of the birth pains” (Matthew 24:7-8).

2. The Political Signs
Jesus said that nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom (Luke 21:10). Jesus also said that there would be wars and rumours of wars.
Therefore when we watch the news or when we read about all the political conflict that is happening in so many countries, you will discover that in almost every nation there is no political rest.
There is not only enmity among nations, but there is strife between groups, tribes, political parties and even ethnic races.
If you observe these political signs, you will discover that the strife is actually getting worse instead of improving.

3. The Apostasy Signs
Jesus said that one of the signs of the end times would be that there would be a rise in false prophets or teachers. The Bible also speaks of a rise in false doctrines or the doctrines of demons and we are warned that multitudes of people will be led astray by false prophets and false teachings (Matthew 24:5,11,24).
1 Timothy 4:1-2 says that “in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared”.

4. The Technological Signs
We live in the Information Age. Therefore there’s no doubt that technology plays a huge part in our day to day life. There are benefits of using technology but also there are fears that are associated with using technology such as privacy and abuse. Another fear concerning technology that is linked to the end times is the idea of microchip implants which is speculated to be linked to the mark of the beast.
Daniel 12:4 says there will be an increase in knowledge in the last days. Therefore when you observe the world today, you can see that the advancement and development of technology as well as information has been growing at a much faster rate in the 21st Century than the previous centuries.

5. The Morality Signs
In the last days the morality of mankind will grow from bad to worse. Jesus spoke of lawlessness increasing and that the love of many will grow cold (Matthew 24:10,12).
2 Timothy 3:1-5 also gives us a list of some of the evil characteristics that mankind will have during the last days.
Jesus also warns that Christians will be persecuted for believing and standing for Christian and Biblical values. Today, we see persecution happening towards Christians and the persecution is growing all over the world.

 

Nobody Knows The Day or Hour
It’s important to realize that nobody knows the date or the hour in which Jesus will return (Matthew 24:36). Therefore we should never attempt to speculate the day or time in which the end of the world will happen or in which Jesus will return.
Our job is to always be ready and prepared for the return of Jesus. Our job is also to always warn others to be prepared for the coming of Christ.
Jesus Christ can return anytime and any day.

 

ARE YOU READY FOR THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST?
If you are not a born again Christian, then it means that you are NOT ready for the return of Jesus Christ. Without Christ you cannot enter into Heaven and you cannot have a relationship with God.
Jesus died for sinners on the cross so that we may have eternal life (John 3:16) and He rose on the third day. We can become born again by believing and receiving Christ into our life through faith in Him.

 

DO YOU WANT TO BE A CHRISTIAN or A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST???

1. ACKNOWLEDGE: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). “God be merciful to me a sinner” (Luke 18:13).
You must acknowledge that you are a sinner and that you therefore need Jesus in your life.

2. REPENT: “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3), “Repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19)
Repenting means: to change your mind; a sincere turning away, in heart, mind and action;
Therefore God wants you to repent of sinful values and of sinful living. God wants you to decide to
follow Him and to make Jesus the Lord of your life.

3. CONFESSION: “If we confess our sins. He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9)
God is a forgiving God. God will forgive any sin that you have done because Jesus died for ALL your sins and to set you free from the bondage of all types of sin in your life.

4. BELIEVE: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
You must believe that ONLY Jesus can save you and restore your relationship with God. You must believe that Jesus is the ONLY way by which you can have everlasting life and escape from eternal separation from God. You must believe that Jesus died on the cross for you and resurrected from the grave.
“He came to His own, and His own did not receive him, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:11-12)
By faith, You must receive Jesus as Your Lord & Savior and therefore; you become a child of God; you become born again; you become a Christian; you restore your broken relationship with God

 

Why Not Make Your Eternal Decision NOW?

We become born again Christians by GRACE through FAITH or TOTAL TRUST in Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior (Galatians 3:26) & (Ephesians 2:8,9). Salvation is a FREE gift received through FAITH in Christ.

PLEASE NOTE: You can choose to pray in your own words. This prayer is a sample prayer and it is only an EXPRESSION of your faith, belief & trust in Jesus. Salvation is by GRACE through FAITH or BELIEVING in Christ Jesus as your Lord & Saviour.

“Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your love. I thank You that You died on the cross for me and resurrected so that I may have life through You.
I confess Lord that I have sinned against You and today I ask You to forgive me of all of my sins, past present and future.
I repent of all of my sins and I ask You to cleanse me Jesus.
Thank You for forgiving my sins.
From this moment, come into my life Lord Jesus & take full control of my life. I want to follow You Jesus and I want to follow Your ways. Save me and from today, make me the person You want me to be.
I receive You Lord Jesus right now by faith. I trust You as my Lord and Savior – Amen”

Should We Consult Horoscopes?

Should we consult horoscopes? Are we supposed to read our horoscopes and believe them? A horoscope is defined as a forecast of a person’s future, typically including a depiction of character and circumstances, based on the relative positions of the stars and planets at the time of that person’s birth.
Therefore one of the purposes of horoscopes is to attempt to forecast the future and to gain insight into future events that may or may not happen in one’s personal life.
Another purpose of horoscopes is to perceive a person’s personality or character traits based on that person’s time of birth and zodiac sign.
Most people who consult their horoscope end up receiving instruction on how to live their life or what decisions to make based on the astrological chart or readings they have received.

There is no doubt that many people of different backgrounds and religions regularly consult horoscopes and believe that the answers to life’s issues and questions are found in the stars and planets.
However, should Christians consult horoscopes? Should we believe in astrology as the answer to our future? What does the Bible say about horoscopes?

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 NKJV
There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you.

Isaiah 47:13-14 NKJV
You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels; Let now the astrologers, the stargazers,
And the monthly prognosticators stand up and save you from what shall come upon you.
14 Behold, they shall be as stubble, The fire shall burn them; They shall not deliver themselves
From the power of the flame; It shall not be a coal to be warmed by, Nor a fire to sit before!

Astrology and horoscopes are a form of divination. Divination is a method of forecasting the future without the participation or power of God. Divination is therefore a demonic method of attempting to foretell the future. It is forbidden by God (Leviticus 19:26) and in many cases there is a demonic spirit of divination (Acts 16:16) that is involved in this practice.

God does not want us to consult astrologers and horoscopes. He wants us to consult Him and to trust in Him for our future (Proverbs 3:5-6). Divination only leads to fear, anxiety and a lack of trust in God who holds your life & future in His hands. Horoscopes lead people away from God because they are demonically inspired (1 Timothy 4:1). Horoscopes therefore shift people’s faith away from God and away from the Bible which is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

God’s will and plan for our lives cannot be found in astrology or by reading horoscopes. We can only find out God’s plan for our lives through meditating the Scriptures (Psalms 1:1-3) and by having a trusting, personal and prayerful relationship with God through our Saviour Jesus Christ (John 14:1-6).
Only our Creator knows our future. Only our Creator can direct our lives if we allow Him into our life. Only our Creator can reveal to us the truth (Jeremiah 33:3).

Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

God has a plan and a future for our lives. Let us trust in Him. Let us put our total faith in Him and not in horoscopes.

 

WHO OR WHAT DO YOU TRUST?
Have you been trusting in anything else other than Jesus Christ in your life? Our trust for our future should only be in God and not in anything or anyone else (Jeremiah 17:5-8).
Are you tired of putting your trust in horoscopes and astrology to give you guidance about your future?
Why not instead put your trust in your Creator – God?
God created you “to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11) and only God is able to give you direction pertaining to your future.
To have a personal relationship with God we must accept His begotten Son Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. Jesus is the way, the truth and life towards having a divine and godly direction in our life (John 14:6)

 

DO YOU WANT TO BE A CHRISTIAN or A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST???

1. ACKNOWLEDGE: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). “God be merciful to me a sinner” (Luke 18:13).
You must acknowledge that you are a sinner and that you therefore need Jesus in your life.

2. REPENT: “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3), “Repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19)
Repenting means: to change your mind; a sincere turning away, in heart, mind and action;
Therefore God wants you to repent of sinful values and of sinful living. God wants you to decide to
follow Him and to make Jesus the Lord of your life.

3. CONFESSION: “If we confess our sins. He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9)
God is a forgiving God. God will forgive any sin that you have done because Jesus died for ALL your sins and to set you free from the bondage of all types of sin in your life.

4. BELIEVE: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
You must believe that ONLY Jesus can save you and restore your relationship with God. You must believe that Jesus is the ONLY way by which you can have everlasting life and escape from eternal separation from God. You must believe that Jesus died on the cross for you and resurrected from the grave.
“He came to His own, and His own did not receive him, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:11-12)
By faith, You must receive Jesus as Your Lord & Savior and therefore; you become a child of God; you become born again; you become a Christian; you restore your broken relationship with God

 

Why Not Make Your Eternal Decision NOW?

We become born again Christians by GRACE through FAITH or TOTAL TRUST in Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior (Galatians 3:26) & (Ephesians 2:8,9). Salvation is a FREE gift received through FAITH in Christ.

PLEASE NOTE: You can choose to pray in your own words. This prayer is a sample prayer and it is only an EXPRESSION of your faith, belief & trust in Jesus. Salvation is by GRACE through FAITH or BELIEVING in Christ Jesus as your Lord & Saviour.

“Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your love. I thank You that You died on the cross for me and resurrected so that I may have life through You.
I confess Lord that I have sinned against You and today I ask You to forgive me of all of my sins, past present and future.
I repent of all of my sins and I ask You to cleanse me Jesus.
Thank You for forgiving my sins.
From this moment, come into my life Lord Jesus & take full control of my life. I want to follow You Jesus and I want to follow Your ways. Save me and from today, make me the person You want me to be.
I receive You Lord Jesus right now by faith. I trust You as my Lord and Savior – Amen”
