Evidence of the Trinity

Trinitarian theology is a central and foundational aspect that forms the basis for orthodox Christianity.  Many church denominations misunderstand, misinterpret or have bluntly altered and twisted scripture, in their attempt to destroy the doctrine of trinitarian theology.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses church believe Jesus was the Father’s first creation, therefore teaching there was no pre-existence of Jesus Christ before the incarnation, while the traditional Pentecostal church believes trinitarian theology is a product of pagan mythology, as they believe that God did exist in all three forms, but not simultaneously.

The following is a collection of scripture from the KJV Bible, with commentaries, and comments from debates and audios, providing scriptural evidence that trinitarian theology is a model that supports scripture both in the Old and New Testament.

New Testament Scripture:

2 Peter 1:17
For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

“Clear evidence the Father is refereed to as God. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, not as an inferior from a superior, for he was equal in glory with the Father, and was, and is, the brightness of his Father’s glory.”

John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  

“The meaning is: that the “Word” had an existence before the world was created. This is not spoken of the man Jesus, but of that which “became” a man, or was incarnate. Was the Word – Greek, “was the λόγος Logos.” The Son of God may be called “the Word,” because he is the medium by which God promulgates (announces) His will and issues His commandments.”

John 1:3
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

“Proof at once of all that is said before; as that He was in the beginning; and that He was with God the Father in the beginning; and that He was God.”

John 1:14
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us

“The word “flesh,” here, is evidently used to denote “human nature” or “man.” It is not simply affirmed that he was flesh, but that he was made flesh, implying that he had pre-existence.”

John 17:5
And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

“There could not be a more distinct and clear declaration of the pre-existence of Christ than this.”

John 8:58
Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

Jesus, revealing to the Church, that He was God, the very same from the Old Testament, the “I am” who spoke to Moses from the burning bush. The Jews understood this, as they picked up stones to kill Jesus for blasphemy for identifying himself as the God of Abraham.

Acts 5:3,4
But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.

This scripture clearly identifies the Holy Ghost as God.

Acts 13:2
As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them

The Holy Ghost has the ability to speak.

John 14:16,17
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

“Another Comforter – Jesus had been to them a counsellor, a guide, a friend, while he was with them. The other Comforter was to be given to perform the offices toward them which he would have done if he had remained personally with them. From this we learn, the Holy Spirit is a distinct person from the Father and the Son.”

Luke 1:35
The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God.

“The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee – This conception shall take place suddenly, and the Holy Spirit himself shall be the grand operator.”

John 10:30
I and my Father are one.  

In the Greek, the translation reads as “I and my Father, we are in union” in the context of deity. This more accurately displaying their unity of position as distinguishable persons within the one Godhead.

1 John 5:7
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

“There are three that bear record – The Father, who bears testimony to his Son; the Word or Λογος, Logos, who bears testimony to the Father; and the Holy Ghost, which bears testimony to the Father and the Son. And these three are one in essence, and agree in the one testimony, that Jesus came to die for, and give life to, the world.”

Matthew 28:19
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

“Granville Sharp’s rule” provides grammatical evidence that all the three personal articles must be distinct persons existing simultaneously. We have the trinity in baptism.

Philippians 2:5-8
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

The text refers to Jesus Christ “being” (a more correct term “existing”) in the form of God, who emptied himself, took upon himself the form of a slave, and lived as a man, showing evidence of his pre-existence once more.

John 14:28
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

The term “greater” here was not to imply that the Son was not a part of the Godhead. From Philippians 2:5-8, we understand that Jesus voluntarily surrendered His right to act independently as deity as the incarnate man, and was totally dependent on the Father and Holy Spirit to operate all works through Him.

Matthew 28:18
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

After the resurrection, Jesus revealed His Authority as God of all that is in heaven and earth. No created creature could reveal this divine title.

Hebrews 1:8
But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

This is a dialogue which existed between the Father and the Son before the incarnation. This evidence of a pre-existing personality talking to the father cannot be eliminated personality wise or grammatically.

The raising of Jesus Christ front the dead:

Acts 3:26
Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

John 2:19-21
Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body.

Romans 8:11
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

Scriptural evidence that all three persons of the trinity, Jehovah, raised the body Jesus from the dead.

Old Testament Scripture:

Proverbs 8:22
The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

“He declares by this the divinity and eternity of this wisdom, which he magnifies and praises through this book: meaning by this the eternal Son of God, Jesus Christ our Saviour, whom John calls the Word that was in the beginning John 1:1.”

Zechariah 12:14
And I (God the Father) will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit (God the Holy spirit) of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced (God the Son), and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

This Old Testament verse , is a prophetic depiction of the roles of the trinity in the New Testament.

Deuteronomy 6:4,5
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might

“Jehovah our God is the only living and true God; he only is God, and he is but One God. Let us not desire to have any other. The three-fold mention of the Divine names, and the plural number of the word translated God, seem plainly to intimate a Trinity of persons.”

Scripture uses the word “us” as evidence of plurality of persons in the Old Testament:

Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness

The Epistle of Barnabas, in Chapter VI, although not part of scripture, may offer a key to the dialogue, in reference to this passage comments with : ” These things [were spoken] to the Son.”

Genesis 11:17
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech

Isaiah 6:8
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me

The book of Revelation holds the final key to scriptural evidence:

Revelations 1:7,8
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Revelation 1:17,18
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Revelation 21:5,6
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Revelation 22:13
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

Revelation 22:16
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Isaiah 44:6
Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God

In light of the Old Testament, these important scriptures identifies the first and the last, the Alpha and the Omega, the one who was had lived, and was dead, and He who make all things new, as Jesus Christ, Jehovah God.

Conclusion:
KJV Bible scripture clearly illustrates that all three persons of the trinity are irrefutably referred and identified as God, and that Jesus Christ was a pre-existing personality before the incarnation in the Old and New Testament. The Christian stand point is that a single God, by the name of Jehovah, exists in three hypostasis, and can speak of Him self as one singular Being or as His Persons.

Meditation and its Dangers

The meditation industry today promotes and claims that Eastern meditation offers many mental, physical and spiritual benefits. I wish to examine the religious roots of this practise and see if there are any mentally or emotionally reported dangers.

Some of the typical health benefits promoted are; stress reduction, mental relaxation, self healing, reduction in blood pressure, aids in anxiety and depression, heightened awareness of the inner self, the ability to look within and beyond the body and mind, consciousness shift, spiritual awakening and the discovery of powers to manifest wills and desires.

My research from case studies and testimonies, including Biblical understandings, have led me to believe that TM and Yoga type meditation is actually a Hindu religious service. It was designed to encourage spiritual detachment from the body for the purpose of contacting Hindu spirits. With this known intent, it is nothing more than spiritualism. We also discover the original purpose of Eastern meditation was for the use of only the elders, for the preparation of death. Studies also show it has the potential to trigger serious mental and emotional conditions.

The documentations below illustrates the potential mental and emotional dangers of this practise.

What is often overlooked is that these Eastern meditation techniques were never meant to be methods to reduce stress and bring about relaxation.

He (Dr. Lorin Roche, a meditation teacher) points out that meditation techniques that encourage detachment from the world were intended only for monks and nuns. He has spent thirty years doing interviews with people who meditate regularly and says many were depressed. He says they have tried to detach themselves from their desires, their loves, and their passion. “Depression is a natural result of loss, and if you internalize teachings that poison you against the world, then of course you will become depressed.”

Dr. Solomon Snyder, head of neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University, warns that during meditation the brain releases serotonin. This may help those with mild depression but too much serotonin can cause, in some, a paradoxical relaxation-induced anxiety. Instead of relaxing during meditation, these people become distressed and may even have panic attacks. Snyder says that in some cases of schizophrenia, meditation can launch a person straight into psychosis.

Dr. Michael Persinger, a professor of neuroscience at the Laurentian University in Canada, studied 1,018 meditators in 1993 and found that meditation can bring on symptoms of complex partial epilepsy such as visual abnormalities, hearing voices, feeling vibrations, or experiencing automatic behaviors such as narcolepsy. Note that epileptic patients who suffer from seizures in the temporal lobes have auditory or visual hallucinations, which they often interpret as mystical experiences. Some are convinced that they conversed with God.

Geoffrey Dawson, a Sydney-based Zen meditation teacher and psychotherapist, has come across twenty people who had mentally distressing experiences as a result of attending courses at the Goenka Vipassana Retreat Center in Blackheath (located in the Blue Mountains of Australia). Dawson says these meditators became fragmented rather than integrated and their experiences included panic attacks, depressive episodes, or both that in most cases persisted months after the retreat ended. There were also some manic episodes, one of which later became diagnosed and treated as a bipolar disorder. Dawson was also contacted by a woman whose daughter had been to a retreat. Her friends and family noticed she became withdrawn and obsessive afterwards. Her psychological condition deteriorated and some months later she became psychotic. Within eighteen months she was hospitalized and committed suicide.
http://thehumanist.org/humanist/MaryGarden.html

Even more alarming is that there has long been evidence that meditation can have an unambiguously negative effect on some of those who take it up – something that rarely, if ever, gets mentioned in popular press articles on the subject. In one study (Shapiro, DH, Adverse effects of meditation: a preliminary investigation of long-term meditators. Int J Psychosom 1992 39:62-7), two thirds of the subjects experienced some kind of adverse effect, ranging from increased anxiety to depression and a sense of disconnection from reality. Seven percent reported profoundly disturbing and lasting side effects.
http://stats.org/stories/2003/why_meditat_bad_feb18_03.htm

Long periods of meditation or meditation that has been done improperly may lead to negative psychological or physical effects. Psychosis, dissociation and uncomfortable sensations are all possible side effects of meditation. Meditation often helps to release emotions. If powerful emotions are released, it could cause psychological effects. Some individuals also may experience depression, panic, anxiety or confusion. A study at Stanford Research Institute in the 70s found that adverse effects such as antisocial behavior, confusion, depression, anxiety, frustration, emotional stability, tension, restlessness and procrastination correlated with the amount of time spent in transcendental meditation. Warnings persist through religious and literary texts that meditation is not an easy path, but rather one with many challenges.

…the consequences can be psychosis, aggravation of neurosis, acceleration of disease processes and suicide
Dr. W. Brugh Joy M.D.

Not everything of a spiritual nature is good for us. Any time we venture into spiritual explorations we desperately need discernment. During the height of Transcendental Meditation fad in the 70′s, the TM instructors also had the highest suicide rate of any trainers in a spiritual system. TM is just recycled Hinduism which, at the heart of the system, inductees are given a mantra which is a past Hindu god which is to be chanted unnumbered times each day leading into peaceful bliss. The opposite is true. The person chanting the name invites spiritual parasites to oppress them. I speak out of experience and not theory. Gary Gold PhD
http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/opinions/17335/

These findings indicate that we are not dealing with something as simple as mind and body relaxation techniques. Clearly Eastern meditation has a real potential to cause mental and emotional problems. A recap of these dangers; depression, schizophrenia, psychosis, partial epilepsy, narcolepsy, panic attacks, bipolar disorder, increased anxiety, a sense of disconnection from reality, antisocial behaviour, confusion, emotional instability, restlessness, procrastination, aggravation of neurosis, acceleration of disease processes and even suicide.

A short history lesson on yoga:

Yoga is an ancient Hindu religious system of meditation and discipline. Yoga practice is central to Hinduism and Buddhism. The term “yoga” means “union” or “yoke” in Sanskrit. Yoga philosophy maintains that yoga is a method for helping one achieve union of self consciousness with the “Universal Consciousness” (i.e., the chief Hindu deity, Brahma, the impersonal force of the universe).

Enlightenment occurs with the realization that self and Brahma are one (i.e., you are god). “A person is said to have achieved yoga, the union with the Self, when the perfectly disciplined mind gets freedom from all desires, and becomes absorbed in the Self alone.” Bhagavad-Gita 6.18. A yogi utilizes physical exercises, controlled breathing, vegetarian dieting, relaxation methods, and meditation techniques to enter altered states of consciousness, thereby opening himself up to spirit contact with Hindu deities

Hatha Yoga is the popular “physical yoga” practiced by millions of Americans today. It is a branch leading to Raja Yoga, the psychological yoga of the mind. As one progresses through Hatha Yoga, the practitioner “becomes wise like a god,” according to Yoga Swami Svatmarama in the HYP Ch.4.71. “The (real) Yogi becomes the creator and destroyer of the universe, like God. “ Ch.4.76. Yoga is motivated by a spirit that inspires self-deification in the practitioner with a promise of reincarnation. One may enter a spiritual realm where he experiences delusions, out-of-body feelings, contact with spirits, demonic oppression, and possibly demonic possession.
http://www.moriel.org/articles/discernment/church_issues/Yoga.pdf

We find that TM (transcendental meditation) and Yoga actually promotes emotional and mental detachment, encouraging a spiritual union of the self consciousness with a universal consciousness, known in Hindu as Brahma, better known as the cosmic “christ” in more modern new age movements, not to be confused with Jesus Christ, Son of God. This theology has its roots in paganism, teaching the pantheistic view that god is an impersonal entity which exists only in nature and in the universe.

This short introductory video gives us a quick look into the occult nature of meditation.

Universal cosmic karma and the theological view of reincarnation plays a vital role in this doctrine, which has deep roots in the occult. This religious doctrine concerning the continuous recycled of the spirit is rebutted in the Bible, and believed to be one of the original lies of the devil.

Genesis 3:4-5
But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Hebrews 9:27
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Dave Hunt explains that one of the dangers of this Eastern meditation practise is contact with unholy spirits. It is absolutely frightening to see so many services advertising meditation as a tool for speaking with spirit guides, ghosts and the diseased. TM meditation, either with or without the intent, can lead to contact with these demonic spirits.

According to Father Jeremy Davies, exorcist for the leader of Catholics in the UK, yoga puts people at risk from devils and the occult is closely associated with the scourges of “drugs, demonic music and pornography” which are “destroying millions of young people in our time”. DNA World, “Yoga leads to possession by devils?

Clairvoyance is clear hearing. This allows me to hear sounds, including voices, that come from the spirits. Mostly what I hear is information in my mind’s voice. The best way I can describe it is to imagine you are reading a book, and at the same time having a thought like, “Did I turn the stove off?” I have two voices happening in my mind, one being my own thought voice which I have to bring down through meditation, and the other voice which would be the other side coming through.

A couple of nights ago, I decided to go into deep meditation again. I don’t know what this is or what you call it, but I’ve had a few experiences where I’ve gone so deeply into meditation that I feel like I’m travelling. It’s almost unexplainable, but it’s an incredibly blissful experience; it’s like a communication with God… the outside world is blocked out and you get this light/tingling sensation. It felt wonderful, but all of a sudden I had a vision of these shadow figures coming towards me. I became intensely afraid and came out of the meditation. Even when I came out of the meditation, at first I couldn’t shake this kind of despairing fear – I don’t know how to explain it, but it’s like a kind of fear you feel you can’t escape from. I was very cold and nauseous and couldn’t stop shivering.. What were these figures and why did they affect me like that? I felt like I was attacked… Ever since then, I’ve still felt a sinister presence nearby at times, but I’ve tried to shut things out because that experience really terrified me. Is there a way to protect myself (and my family, I don’t want to think about things like that around my children) during meditation, or should I stop meditating and try to turn off my sensitivities again? Are these dark beings demons or something else, and why did they come after me?
http://www.psychic-experiences.com/real-psychic-story.php?story=2017

What is the Biblical definition of a Demon:

The Greek form, rendered “devil” in the Authorized Version of the New Testament. Daemons are spoken of as spiritual beings (Matthew 8:16; 10:1; 12:43-45) at enmity with God, and as having a certain power over man (James 2:19; Revelation 16:14). They recognize our Lord as the Son of God (Matthew 8:20; Luke 4:41). They belong to the number of those angels that “kept not their first estate,” “unclean spirits,” “fallen angels,” the angels of the devil (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 12:7-9). They are the “principalities and powers” against which we must “wrestle” (Ephesians 6:12).
M. G. Easton, Easton’s Bible Dictionary

In the Gospels generally, in ( James 2:19 ) and in Rev 16:14 the demons are spoken of as spiritual beings, at enmity with God, and having power to afflict man not only with disease, but, as is marked by the frequent epithet “un-clean,” with spiritual pollution also. They “believe” the power of God “and tremble,” ( James 2:19 ) they recognized the Lord as the Son of God, ( Matthew 8:29 ; Luke 4:41 ) and acknowledged the power of his name, used in exorcism. In the place of the name of Jehovah, by his appointed messengers, ( Acts 19:15 ) and looked forward in terror to the judgement to come. ( Matthew 8:29 ) The description is precisely that of a nature akin to the angelic in knowledge and powers, but with the emphatic addition of the idea of positive and active wickedness.
Smith, William, Smith’s Bible Dictionary. .

These demonic entities can also be understood through the Biblical warning in Deuteronomy 18:9-12, particularly concerning the consulting of familiar spirits, and necromancing (communication with the deceased) which were passed as an abomination, simply because God does not want anyone at risk of possession or gaining confidence in these unholy spirits.

Deuteronomy 18 :9-12
When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

The Bible teaches us that the fallen angles, from the old testament are the entities responsible for masquerading as false deities throughout history. Whether they were known as teachers from above, ascended masters, spirit guides or even intergalactic aliens, these entities have always being at work to bring in a strong unbelief against the spirit of God and are stronger than ever working behind the scenes in today’s western cultures through the New Age movement. These forms of meditation also encourages the chanting of mantras, which are designed to attract and worship these very same unholy spirits, which God does not want you to have relations with.

The Bible also describes several cases in which demons are expelled from a possessed person. One example is found at Mark 1:23-26, which says that Jesus cast out a demon from a man in a crowd. There is another example at Luke 8:26-40, which describes how Jesus expelled several demons from a single man. Other biblical passages which mention casting out demons include Luke 8:2-3 and Mark 9:17-30. The existence of demons is consistent with historical worship systems and the Biblical teachings.

Mark 1:23-26
And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.

Dhyana or yoga meditation involves concentrating on the void, on emptiness, as opposed to Christian meditation, which involves meditating on Biblical principles and doctrine for the sake of seeking and understanding what is true and pure. The Bible clearly outlines that we do not pray in continuous repetitions nor in tongues, rather we speak intelligently, sincerely with full consciousness. Christian meditation is required for seeking protection against unholy influences, for seeking the Lord’s merciful nature to actively intervene with our troubles and a means to testify through the blood of Jesus Christ the promise of redemption and blessings.

Matthew 6:7-13
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen

Joshua 1:8
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Psalm 19:14
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalm 119:15
I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

Psalm 119:97
how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

Psalm 1:2
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

The purpose of Christian meditation is to bring individuals to repentance of sin and guide them in a fuller understanding of the truth. Whether it be for one’s own spiritual progress, or for the glory of Christ, or for the prosperity of God’s interests upon earth, it must always be in line with the word.

The new age industry is also thriving today selling meditative items and merchandise, such as sage and other herbs for the purpose of burning, singing bowls or bells, crystals, birth stones, word stones, gem stones and chakra charms. These items simply do no provide any protection or enlightenment and unfortunately one puts them selves in a very vulnerable spiritual position, by not realising they are in fact receiving a Hindu church service every time they practise these meditative techniques.

The new age movement is just a modern term for the old age Babylonian occult, and is growing on a global scale, in line with prophesy and naively accepted as a reliable health practise. I encouraging anyone who practices Eastern meditation to be weary of its Hindu roots and its religious intentions, and realise that only your own personal relationship with Jesus, Son of God, can only protect you, heal you and bring truthful spiritual knowledge. Although many people who practice these meditation techniques may be very sincere in their desire to build a relationship with God, they don’t in fact realise they are putting them selves in a dangerous spiritual position and separating them selves further from the Lord.
