Christian Mystics are calling themselves true believers of Jesus Christ. They operate under mystical theories and theological thoughts about God. They know how to use persuasive words which seem to lead people to God, as they cater to pagan practices which lead people far from God.
“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ,” (Colossians 2:8).
Let’s dissect Christian and mystic separately.
The believers of Christ were first named Christians in the book of Acts. It was believed to be a derogatory name given by the unbelievers or gentiles to the believers of Christ. It’s meaning is followers of Jesus Christ, which was fitting to their commission.
“And Barnabas left for Tarsus to search for Saul; and when he found him, he brought him back to Antioch. For an entire year they met [with others] in the church and instructed large numbers; and it was in Antioch that the disciples were first called Christians,” (Acts.11.25-26).
The word mysticism means “religious experiences during an alternative state of conscientiousness, or ecstasies.” Some people recognize it as becoming one with God through a religious or spiritual contact. It is part of many “religious” practices.
The mystical realm is where a person gain trues which are interpreted to be from God or gods. They speak words so close to the biblical truth, if possible, the elect people of God would be deceived. I see this frequently today.
People are seeking Christian mystics for answers to the chaos and new world order. They desire spiritual directions that compromise with their fleshly narratives making them believe they are in right standard with God. Christian mystics avoid teaching repentance and salvation but teach that people are self-proclaimed gods.
Many professing Christian leaders operate under mysticism, privately connecting to the prince of this world, participating in ecstasies, satanic rituals and sacrifices. Approving notable celebrities as being sent from God. Facts!
These practices have been in operation for centuries.
“It happened that as we were on our way to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave-girl who had a spirit of divination [that is, a demonic spirit claiming to foretell the future and discover hidden knowledge], and she brought her owners a good profit by fortune-telling,” (Acts 16:16).
While following Paul, this slave girl proclaimed that they were servants of the “Most High God” who was leading the people to salvation. She spoke truth, and recognized their mission for God, but there was something in her voice and consistent nagging that annoyed Paul. After days of her screaming those words, Paul spoke to the spirit inside of her to come out and she was freed.
Christian mystics agree with some biblical teachings and manipulate it into their mystical demonic narrative. The condition and vulnerability the church world is in today gives them easy access to deceive vulnerable Christians.
They are popular in today’s developing systematic changes in “the church world” new age Christianity.
The new church world or one world religion called Chrislam unifies many religious beliefs under one system. Their common ground is we worship the same god, just different paths. Hmm? Does this sound familiar?
Popular Christian leaders have said the same knowing Jesus said this, “I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me,” (John 14:6). Are they turned over to believe a lie?
A Christian mystic is led by the method of thought rather than the doctrines of Jesus Christ.
Watch, pray, observe, study, and listen closely, and you will hear the deception.
