Jesus Calling PART 10 - New Age "Messages": Sarah Young's Contemplative Prayer Method Identical to Passive, Telepathic-Psychic Literary Mediumship!
An 11 Part Audio Series by Chris Lawson
This discernment teaching message is also available as one lengthy audio under the title, Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling Messages Compared to Spirit Channeled Messages (See episode menu).
Note for Jesus Calling devotional readers: This series includes direct quotes from the Jesus Calling author Sarah Young, from her personal interviews with news correspondents. These quotes are then compared to definitions from The Donning International Encyclopedic Psychic Dictionary (June G. Bletzer, Ph.D.).
Not that long ago, New Age terms like ultimate reality, universal presence, Love-Light, Light-bearer, supernatural plane, living channel, divine alchemy, co-create, paradigm shift, and true self were sure indicators of someone's New Age/ metaphysical orientation. All these terms can now be found in books such as Jesus Calling and are rapidly becoming part of the everyday language of the church. In Sarah Young's 2012 book Jesus Today, her ‘Jesus’ refers to his “infinite intelligence.” A quick search on the Internet for the term leads to multitudinous New Age/New Thoughts websites. In New Age language, infinite intelligence refers to God “in” everyone and everything. In fact, New Age channeler Esther Hicks calls her spirit guide Abraham ‘Infinite Intelligence.’
As the church merges more and more with the spiritual language of the New Age, and also excepts New Age practices and disciplines into the church, then compromised spiritual beliefs are the result. Faith then becomes watered down, blending easily with a world where New Age beliefs are already mainstream. Ultimately, everything has to be unified for a New World Religion and a New World Order to take effect. (Warren B.

some senses, that's just the way she likes it. Away from the
celebrity status that a best-selling book could afford, Minchew
says, Young spends her time doing
what she loves: praying and listening. After all these years, she still hears Jesus calling.”
“Yet not everyone is so enthusiastic that Jesus Calling is reinvigorating interest in the theology behind Young's writings—and, by extension, in Young herself. Young bases her works on listening prayer, a theological practice in which a person aims to hear messages directly from God. Critical readers want to know: Does Young really think Jesus is speaking directly to her? Is he?” [Emphasis in original]
“That love manifests itself in Young's practice of journaling, through which she has collected—and later published—messages from God for decades. Young became a Christian as an adult after studying at Francis Schaeffer's L'Abri in Switzerland, where she says she first experienced the presence of ‘Sweet Jesus.’”
1 John 3:24-4:5 — “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us. Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”
