Wide Is The Gate 1 (1 of 5) The Emerging New Christianity: The Counterfeit Church

In Volume One, Caryl Matrisciana covers these topics:

  • The Counterfeit Church

  • Biblical Christianity

  • Christianized New-Age Spirituality

  • The Evolving Old New-Age to New-Age Christianized Mysticism

Volume 1 Guests include Caryl Matrisciana, Jason Carlson, Eric Douma, Brian Flynn, Michael Gendron, Tom McMahon, Johanna Michaelsen, Roger Oakland, Chris Quintana, Warren Smith, Ray Yungen, and other cameos. Video journalist, Caryl Matrisciana, author of Out of India, interviews friends, well-known authors, and experts in this bold and challenging DVD.

Caryl examines the intrusion of the 60’s and 70’s New Age Movement, steeped in its pagan eastern mysticism, and traces its morphing over the last four decades—from its repackaging as the “self help” psychology and holistic health movements of the 80’s, to its seeker friendly, megachurch appearance in the 90’s, to its coming out in the 21st century as “the new spirituality.”

Today’s new brand of Christianity has a different gospel and is targeting the younger generation with a so-called hip, cool, experiential spirituality, much of which is embracing the mysticism of Roman Catholicism with its ecumenical philosophy of uniting people from all faiths to work together to bring about a new world of peace and harmony.

The dangerous result of this new spirituality in the church is the rise of today’s “Christianized” occultism. It is stretching its tentacles around the souls of unsuspecting youth, setting them up for the lie that subjective emotions of “power” and “experience” are “feelings” to be held higher than an objective walk in the Christian faith, based on truth found in the pure Word of God.

Learn what Scripture teaches about the times we live in, the ways in which Christians are being seduced away from biblical truth, and the methods used by the New Spirituality to usher in the counterfeit kingdom of God on earth.

No Fire on the Sabbath?

If you have every been told that you can not flip on a light switch, drive a car, or use an elevator on the Sabbath, then this teaching is for you. We examine where these errors originate, and what the Bible really says...

Does God Exist - The Design of the Universe

The question, “Does God Exist?” has long been pondered from the layman to the greatest scientists and scholars throughout history. When all things are considered, the odds of the design of the universe and fine-tuning necessary in order for it to exist to have happened by chance is simply unbelievable…even to scientists.

KIB 270 – Is a Divine Visitation Upon Us

Throughout history, there were times that Almighty God came down to judge humanity.  Micah 1:1-3 foretells of pending judgment upon both the nations of Israel and Judah.  Is the prophetic pattern revealed in Micah about to be replicated in our day?  The racism and communistic tactics of the deep state are merely attempts to cover up what really needs to be judged in our day:  human trafficking.  It is time to seek the face of the Almighty to come down and judge what the Elite want to remain hidden and protected the most.

Episode 10 | The Book of MATTHEW

The Masquerade | Shabbat Night Live

Is it a manifestation or a masquerade? The ludicrous things going on in churches today under the guise of being “in the spirit” must be discerned carefully. In this episode, Michael Rood shares how a simple re-definition of the word “gift” can help you rightly divide the truth!

Prophecy Study - Pope Launches New Movement

The Hebraic Book of Revelation chapter 16

The Trumpet judgments were partial in their effect, here we see the Bowls are universal in scope and final in scope! The Seals were both a call to come in to shelter and a debut of judgment for ignoring the invite of the first Seal. The Trumpets were an escalating judgment with a call to repentance. The Bowls are a pouring out of Divine wrath - unbridled! Please consider supporting this ministry: https://torahtothetribes.com/give

The Circumcision Of The Heart

In "The Circumcision Of The Heart" we reveal how the Torah prophesied of the new birth experience of the new covenant and how Yeshua circumcises the hearts of all believers - cutting away the body of sin and giving believers the "want to" and the "power to" be obedient. A must see for all serious students of the Scripture.

The Exodus Decoded - History Documentary

The Exodus. The very word invokes an epic tale of Pharaohs and Israelites, plagues and miracles, the splitting of the sea, the drowning of an army, Moses and revelation. The story is at the very heart of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

After six years of research, working with archeologists, Egyptologists, geologists and theologians, Simcha Jacobovici came to the groundbreaking conclusion that the Exodus took place hundreds of years earlier than previously thought. With this new timetable in hand, Jacobovici and his colleagues re-examined long ignored archeological artifacts and uncovered the truth about the Exodus and the Egyptian dynasty that ruled at the time.

The producers teamed up with some of the world’s most accomplished special effects designers to create a unique digital, organic experience of the Exodus. Blending archeological findings with modern eye catching effects, Jacobovici built a virtual museum to showcase his discoveries.

Why Hebrews Was Written (Part One)

by John W. Ritenbaugh Forerunner, "Personal," November-December 2017

We have reached the point in our progress through the covenants God has made with those He has sanctified for His purposes where it becomes helpful to study significant portions of the epistle to the Hebrews to better understand Christ’s and our parts in the New Covenant. In each covenant since He created Adam and Eve, God has been adding depth to our understanding, not merely of mankind’s destructive history, but far more importantly, of God’s character, giving us a better vision of the leadership qualities He aims to create in us.

In all of the covenants, some responsibilities are always the same—such as the requirement to keep His commandments. However, in each, there are also specific objectives for dealing with the times in which those covenants were made, as well as specific responsibilities for which God is also preparing us to fill after our resurrection to eternal life. Therefore, each covenant is necessary to refine our grasp of the realities of God’s creative purposes.

We have just concluded a long series explaining several detailed covenants God made with people, primarily drawn from among Israel, whom He sanctified. The New Covenant introduces a significant addition to their number: God begins adding Gentiles into the mix as He continues to form the church.

His overall intention regarding covenants is to give His called ones specific direction about what He desires of those within His purpose and about living by faith. This truth is essential to us because we are already on the path toward completing His purpose in our lives. Overall, He is not aiming for qualities the world extols and rewards. He seeks to continue developing personal leadership qualities of character and attitude in His image that we are to use within family and local community life.

by Nathaniel E. Greene

Imagine being sent out for groceries by your parents, only to return home having been selected as the first king of a freshly emerging monarchy. This is how the story of Saul ben Kish begins. We first meet Saul after his father has lost a drove of donkeys. Saul’s quest to find his father’s livestock then takes a rather unexpected turn when he encounters the prophet Samuel who informs him that Yahweh has chosen him to rule over Israel. This sudden alteration of Saul’s itinerary sets him on a path to becoming a somewhat successful military leader; however, this new trajectory also sets Saul on a path toward a contentious rivalry with the young David as well as toward his family’s demise upon Mount Gilboa.

Saul: King in the north? Or, no king at all?

The current form of the biblical text of 1 Samuel would have the reader believe that Saul ruled Israel as a king prior to David successfully usurping his throne. While Saul was certainly a social and political leader of early Israel, it is difficult to determine whether or not Saul was ever actually a king. After all, there are very few passages in 1 Samuel that actually describe Saul at court, in a palace, or performing kingly activities. Instead, the lion’s share of Saul’s activities are martial in nature. Saul’s encounter with Nahash the Ammonite (1Sam 11) and his sacking of various Philistine garrisons with his son Jonathan (1Sam 13:2-3; see 1Sam 14:6-15) serve as prime examples. Further, the notice of his regnal years in 1Sam 13:1 is problematic and was likely added at a much later date, leading many readers to question its reliability. (The Hebrew text that we have actually has Saul beginning his reign at one year old!) The archaeological reality of the time period when Saul would have ruled Israel—the early Iron Age, some time between the end of the eleventh and beginning of the tenth centuries BCE—is also more than a little problematic. While the Bible paints a picture of Saul leading a burgeoning political and military power, there is little archaeological evidence to support the existence of an Israelite monarchy at such an early date. In fact, most of the texts describing Saul in 1 Samuel anticipate the successful rise of David. The description of Saul’s good looks in 1Sam 9:1-2, for example, anticipates Yahweh’s concerns in selecting a king in 1Sam 16:7—namely, that Yahweh cares not about physical appearance. Instead, Yahweh is concerned with selecting a king on the basis of their character. It seems most likely that most of the older tales describing Saul and his military excursions were inherited by scribes who favored David and edited into political propaganda against Saul and in favor of David and the Davidic line. Perhaps Saul was never king in fact and was only made to appear as one to reinforce Davidic claims for the throne.

Prophet or prophetic pawn? Who is really in charge here?

From the very beginning of Saul’s story, the careful reader can discern a close relationship between Saul and the prophetic office. There is little that Saul does that takes place outside the oversight of prophets—Samuel in particular. Saul’s quest for seeking out his father’s lost livestock is sidetracked by an initially unnamed seer who turns out—surprise, surprise!—to be Samuel. From this point until the time of his death fighting against the Philistines on Mount Gilboa, the trajectory of Saul’s story is ordered and directed by prophetic activity. He is first anointed by Samuel as “king designate” (Hebrew nāgîd) in 1Sam 10:1. Then, after the donkey tale appears to have come to a conclusion, Samuel directs a lot casting ceremony to determine Israel’s new leader in a more public setting in 1Sam 10:17-27. Indeed, here the people request a king (Hebrew melek) and proclaim Saul as such by the end of the tale. (Note, however, that this particular passage comes from a time much later than the texts that surround it and does not cast Saul in the most favorable of light.) The episode at Jabesh Gilead seems, at first glance, to have escaped the influence of the prophetic office and lacks almost any references to prophets or prophecy; the phrase “and after Samuel” in 1Sam 11:7, although probably a secondary addition to the text, serves to bring the entire episode under the watchful eye of this prominent Man of God. 1Sam 11 concludes with a transition to Gilgal—connecting the story to Samuel’s earlier directions to Saul and prepares the reader for Saul’s first rejection two chapters later. After failing to obey Samuel’s command to wait for him at Gilgal, Saul disobeys Samuel’s orders in 1Sam 13:7-15 and is denied the kingship by Samuel. After having waited the full seven days as Samuel had ordered him in 1Sam 10:8, Saul offered up a sacrifice to Yahweh, only for Samuel to jump out—almost as if he had been hiding behind some nearby bushes—to catch Saul in the act of illicit cultic activity. Similarly, Saul’s skirmish with the Amalekites and King Og in 1Sam 15 was intended to culminate with the Amalekites being put to the ban (Hebrew ḥrm). Saul spares Og, however, and is denied the kingship a second time by Samuel. Saul’s origin story is almost entirely directed by prophetic activity at every turn. Relatedly, an old “proverb” or saying concerning Saul (“Is Saul also among the prophets?”) and an association with prophets appears twice in 1 Samuel (1Sam 10:12 and 1Sam 19:24), which could also be understood to subordinate Saul to prophetic oversight. It is the prophet, after all, who both anoints and denounces various kings throughout the book of Samuel.
