Thousands Flock To Times Square To Celebrate Summer Solstice With Yoga
Commentary By: Gordon King
The lies, the deception, the twisting of the truth. I tell you what, the deception in our world is unbelievable!
On Saturday, thousands of people flocked to Time Square in New York City, to Celebrate the summer solstice. But is that actually what they are doing? Do they really know what they are doing? Looks to me like they are bowing down to worship a “Sun god”. A false religion, a false idol. What do you think?
First of all, they are worshiping the sun. Second, they are worshiping false gods, under the guise of “Yoga”. I have heard some Christians say that there is nothing wrong with Yoga and that it brings them closer to God. But this practice does not come from Christianity. It comes from the Hindus and Buddhists. Do they worship the same God as the Christians do? Emphatically NO!!!
Does the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob tell us to practice false religious acts in order to worship Him? No! In fact just the opposite is true. Be very careful who you worship and how you worship God Almighty. You may just be turning your back on Him and spitting right in His face.
I don’t care what many say, that practicing Yoga is just for exercise. It is in fact part of a religious ceremony of the Hindus and the Buddhists. I am no expert on these false religions, but that’s what they are. And to take part in Yoga is in essence, participating in their religious activities. Whether you like it or not, believe it or not, it is what it is.
This is part of the deception of the end times folks, the time we are now living in. Many will be deceived, many shall fall away. I know that most people find practicing Yoga and celebrating the summer solstice nothing more than harmless acts, just fun and exercise. But beware, be warned, these are abominations unto the Lord of the Universe my friends.
The following is an article posted today about the Yoga and Sun worship in New York City:
(SOURCE) — Thousands of yogis from all over the world welcomed the Summer Solstice with their open arms to the sky on Saturday.
“It was fun. It was really relaxing when they had us laying down in different poses,” Joey from Yorktown, said.
Courtney was in town from Jamaica.
“There is a good group of people. You can have fun and relax,” she said.
“So it really is this metaphor for the larger challenges of our lives. How do we stay present, how do we stay focused with all the distractions,” he said.
Tompkins told 1010 WINS reporter Roger Stern that the event allowed participants to move into a different state of mind even amid the business of Times Square.
“I am struck at how it actually is possible in the midst of all this busyness to get yourself into a different state of mind,” he said.
Even so come quickly Lord Jesus
God is only One and true religion is onlty one. It is foolish to say God of Christians is different from Hindus, Muslims, etc.
Great souls preached only one truth,
Their lives bore testimony to this eternal truth,
They never preached any sect or religion
That belongs to some particular region.
Sects and religions are taught by different schools,
Found and practiced by self-centered, damned fools.
What is wrong if one worships Sun God without Him we no longer exist.
There is only one God, and that God is Jesus Christ. Worshiping the sun as a god is worshiping idols and false gods, strictly forbidden by God. Read the “Ten Commandments”.
The sun is not a god, God created the sun. Worshiping the sun is an abomination unto the Lord.
John 4:16 “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me”.
God was there before the birth of Jesus Christ. The disciples of Jesus did not realize God when He was alive. They even betrayed Him. This is their truth. Now based on their works and writings you are engaging in discussions. The Sun God was there much, much before Jesus birth. He is the witness of the world happenings. With your higher intellegence you should show pity and mercy on them those who worship the Sun God and other Deities in stead of condemning them if you practice the virtues of Jesus.
The scriptures only indicate higher truths for the literate. But God is the same for literate and illiterate and beyond all dualities. It is foolish to fight holding a book. God and Jesus Christ are beyond books.
Never fight holding a book
But sitting in a nook
For the contents you look,
Then to the truth, you hook.
Holy books teach us to brook,
No book is there to rook,
But by reading a book
If you become a crook
Sure, you exploited the book.
Oh Gordan, how true is your assessment on the article and how sad it is how so many are deceived. Yoga is a pagan ritual. They no not the truth.
The Scriptures (The Holy Bible, The Book) IS God inspired. “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free!” Jn 8:32
The Gospel of John states, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:1-5. “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14 This is not the light of the sun but the light of the SON-Jesus Christ. The Word is Jesus Christ! Everyone/anyone finds knowledge in the word if you search the Book with faith and prayer, having no conceived ideas of what it will tell you, But let The Book speak for itself. We must first accept Jesus into our hearts. And the truth will reveal itself if you truly, sincerely desire it. May the love of God show this individual and the masses that believe there is no harm in yoga, the truth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thanks again SweetJava for you words of encouragement. Many people see no harm in practicing Yoga, even many Christians. Yet in doing so are actually worshiping a false idol and practicing a false religion. God Bless
By merely reciting scriptures is not truth. Even parrots can repeat the scriptural words if we teach them. It does not mean that they know truth.
I would like to ask you what is the Word that became our Lord. If you do not know then you know not the truth.
The scriptures only indiacate higher truths for the literate. But God is the same for both the literate and the illiterate. It is not wise to condemn others with bookish knowledge.
The wise condemn those who spread hatred in the name of religion.
This is from the word of God, believe it or not. To not speak the truth is a lie, and how is that helping anyone? Your words make no sense, and make no point. I only speak of the truth of the word of God, believe it or not.
From our discussions it is clear whose words are nonsense and making a point. How can you say what you say is from the word of God? What is the authority or authenticity? Let me know what is the Word that became our Lord God. If you do not know this then your words are projections of your ego propelled by bookish knowledge od scriptures and nothing more. I am not a blind follower to believe in whatever one says as the Word of God.
The Word is Jesus, and always has been. Jesus is the Word and was the Word, did you not know this? The Word of God is Holy, Righteous and the Truth! He is the way, the truth and the life! There is no other.
Believe what you want. As for me, I shall believe my Father in heaven, thank you!
God Bless Nath!
I am only speaking words of truth from the bible. If you choose to argue against them, then you are not arguing with me, but with God. Remember that. It is your choice. Maybe you should try speaking directly to Him!
The words of the Bible only indicate truth. By merely saying Jesus is not sufficient. If Jesus was Word then why did His disciples betray Him when He was alive? None of them stood loyal and fight against the injustice done to Jesus. Those who were with the Word (according to you Jesus) could betray the Word. It was clearly mentioned the Word was God which was before the birth of Jesus. The Word should be in flesh and blood always.
I am not arguing but discussing so that truth can come out. If you accept that you don’t know the Word like all, then I will no longer engage myself in discussions with you. I am ready to face the consequences of my actions and I will be blessed if God punishes me (as Jesus too was punished and became blessed) and I am not like the disciples of Jesus who betrayed the Word.
The Word is God as I said. Jesus is the Word, Jesus is God, He came to earth in the flesh to save man from sin and give him eternal life.
The most important truth is this: Jesus Christ is God, He died on the cross and shed His blood to pay for all of our sin, He was buried in a tomb for 3 days, then arose and ascended into Heaven to be with the Father. Believe this and accept Him as your Lord and Savior, and you too shall be saved.
This is all I need to say. It is up to you to believe it or not, it is your choice. No one is forcing you to believe it, nor is anyone forcing you to read or believe anything that I say or write. After all, it is you who came to my website, not the other way around.
May God Bless you Nath!
The word of God is not only the truth, it is alive! It is powerful and cuts like two edged sword. That is why the truth hurts. You wonder why I quote scripture? Because it is the truth! God can tell it like it is much better than I can. You must understand, that I am merely a tool used by God. It is He who is in me that is spreading this word. I am a child of God and go where He leads me to go, write whatever He leads me to write.
To continue a dialogue with you would be foolish of me, so I will end this conversation!
I pray for God to give you understanding, wisdom, enlightenment, and peace. Amen God Bless Nath!
I read up on your information on your website each day, it is very good and informational. The Lord uses all of us in different ways to pass his word to the lost, people can read the bible each and everyday but we as true Christians have to understand that the parables the secrets in the bible are not reveal to all, but to the ones Jesus has chosen to be in the kingdom. We must continue to teach and reach out to the lost souls. You will have people that what to test your faith and try to twist God’s word and truth into their own.Pray for those kind of people because your not dealing with that person, but it’s spirit I like the way you handle that situation with remaining to give God word of truth and not your own. I have been baptize, received the holy Spirit, I pass gospel on to anyone who is hungry enough for Jesus to listen. We have to let people know and understand that they have to repent for their sins, be baptize in Jesus name and receive the holy Spirit and live a holy life only then share they see the kingdom of God (Acts 2:38),(John 3:5). Keep doing want you do passing the gospel.
Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement sister! At times it is difficult to deal with people who are condemning and accusing. However, as you have said, we are dealing with spirits. We must let the Holy Spirit of God work within us and through us for the truth to be known.
If we are never persecuted for our faith, then are we really on the right track?
Yes that is so true, you are welcome. We will continue to pray for those people. I enjoy reading your blog!!!!!
I went through all your (Gordon King) comments and here is the reply:
1. Jesus Christ died for your sins because you believe so. I don’t want others blood for my sins. I am ready to face the consequences of my actions though they maybe looking sinful to some.
2. Everybody has a right to believe and follow. I have never asked you to follow me. Spirituality is a matter of firm will and self conviction. There is no place for blind beliefs and superstitions.
3. I have come to your website: Everyone has a right to question and know the truth. If you have real knowledge and wisdom and follow the virtues of Jesus, you would not have mentioned about my visit to your website. Lord Jesus also questioned false teachings of priests and others. People like you who cannot like to stand before the truth caused His crucification and spread that He died for our sins. How truthful are your beliefs have been understood here.
4. When hypocrites and fools are questioned they start abusing the one who speaks the truth. This is what happened with Jesus. You better say you don’t know anything about the Word, wisdom and knowledge so you end the conversations.
5. You better pray to God for yourself to get understanding, wisdom and knowledge. The same has been told by Jesus in the Bible. I am not a begger to seek others’ prayers for me.
I do need the blood of Jesus to cover my sins, we all do my friend. I only speak the truth Nath. You choose to believe it or not.
I have no blind beliefs, I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. I place all of my trust and faith in Him and Him alone.
The Jews that crucified Jesus did not believe in Him Nath. That is why they crucified Him, not his believers.
If you were a believer and read and studied God’s word, then you would understand what I am saying.
I will stand before the truth, as we all will Nath. The time is coming for judgment my friend. If I were to not tell you these things, then I would not be speaking out of love and compassion for you and others. You need to know, then you can decide. I am not forcing you to believe anything. I am not forcing you to come to this site and read what God says either, that was your choice.
If you wish to condemn me for that, so be it.
You don’t have to be a beggar for others to pray for you Nath. This is what Christians do.
God Bless Nath!
You better do not including me in either with you all or with the Jews. Time will tell who speaks truth and who speaks higher truth and who speaks the highest truth.
Be ready for Judgement as you believe in it.
None can force me to do this or that. If someone spreads falsehood in the name God or Jesus, I cannot stop myself protesting it.
You can prevent or block me visiting your website but you cannot ask me not to come to your site.
I am not condemning you or anybody in person, the wise condemn the falsehood prevailing in the society.
Thanks at last you have understood who is a real Christian. May God bless you!
Time will tell all things Nath. God Bless!
Yes. We both agreed here. At last we have a common point. Let the time decide.
IS YOUR NAME WRITTEN IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE? BY STEVE FINNELL
Who will be allowed to enter the great city, the holy Jerusalem, when time will no longer exist?
Revelation 21:9-27….. 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city , the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God……..27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.(NKJV)
That narrows it down. You do not have to speculate about that which defiles. You do not have to wonder what or who causes an abomination or a lie. If your name is not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life you are the guilty one.
Philippians 4:3 And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers whose names are in the Book of Life.(NKJV)
Whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life? All of those whose sins have been washed away by the blood of the Lamb have their names written in the Book of Life.
How do men get their sins washed away?
1. Faith: John 3:16
2. Repentance: Acts 3:19, Acts 2:38
3. Confession:Romans 10:9
4. Water Baptism: Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3:21, Ephesians 5:25-27
Having your name written on the membership role of your local church does not guarantee that your name will be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
Your name might be written in the book at the Baptist Church, the Lutheran Church, the Mosque, the Catholic Church, the Temple of Freemasonry, the Methodist church, the Elks Lodge, the Salvation Army, the Mormon Church, the Buddhist Temple, the Community Church, the Christian Church, the Synagogue, etc., however, if your name is not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life you will not be allowed into the holy city, the new Jerusalem.
Revelation 3:1-5…….”He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and His angels.(NKJV)
Yes, your name can be erased from the Book of Like.
Revelation 13:4-8 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast…..8 And all who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.(NKJV)
At the end times all who do not not have their names written in the Book of Life will worship the beast.
There are men today who worship false gods. There are men, even now, who worship the Pope, the Virgin Mary and other dead saints by praying to them.
Is your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life? If not, you will not be entering the holy city, the new Jerusalem
YOU ARE INVITED TO FOLLOW MY BLOG. http//:steve-finnell.blogspot.com
Hello Steve and thanks for your comment. I totally agree with you that only those written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will enter heaven, only through the blood of Jesus. But I do not believe that your name can be erased, for we are sealed by the Holy Spirit of God, not by our works, but by the grace of God. Just as by taking the Mark of the Beast, you are then sealed by Satan. I also do not believe that you must first be baptized in water to be saved, but it is an act of faith after we are saved. Jesus said believe in me and you shall be saved. John 3:16.
God Bless my friend!
To Steve Finnel, none can enter Jerusalem by reading and reciting scriptures. Reading and reciting of scriptures are done by the literate. Parrots too recite if we teach them. God is the same for the literate and the illiterate. He makes no distinctions between those who possess the knowledge of the scriptures and those who are ignorant of the scriptures. It is truth, truth and only practice of truth in thought, word and deed that matters for one to reach God or enter Jerusalem or Heaven.
You have to find out for yourself whether my name is written or not. Prior to that, it is better if you find about yourself whether your name is written or not in the Lamb’s Book Of Life.
I am sure you are not the holder of the Lamb’s Book Of Life, nor it was written by you. You are free to think of me whatever you like. I am least bothered to be guilty and I am ready to face the punishment God gives me if He feels I am a guilty one. I don’t want Jesus or other saints to shed Their blood for my sins and guilts.
I don’t think it is wrong if someone worships Mother Mary who gave birth to Jesus and other saints whom God has acknowledged as His devotees. One progresses step by step is the wisdom of the wise.
