I thought this article by Jennifer LeClaire an Editor with the Charisma magazine was very important and highlights the very danger we have been aware of for some time.  Much of the 'church' is getting swayed by New Age teachings that sound good, but are full of death dealing poison.  Here is the article:


I recently heard a prophetic word that described an angelic visitation.  Of course, I am all for angelic visitations. Both the Old and New Testament offer plenty of examples of angels appearing to people
to deliver heavenly messages. But this angel apparently had a creative name. Its name was supposedly "Safe Passage."

It grieves me that we have to go around this mountain yet again in the body of Christ. Wasn´t the controversy over Emma - the female angel who purportedly started the modern-day prophetic movement
enough to put an end to this sort of nonsense? Apparently not. Let me be clear: There is no angel named Emma and there is no angel named Safe Passage - and it´s assignment is not to escort you safely into new opportunities or to clear fearsome corners and honor your unsung courage.

However, if you Google the keywords "angel safe passage," you might see where a misguided prophetic pen could draw such erroneous inspiration. There´s a Safe Passage playing card that´s a prominent "white angel" in a Dungeons & Dragons-style game.

In this context, "Safe Passage" is a sorcerer. On the more benign side, "Safe Passage" was the title of a script for a 1997 episode of Touched by an Angel. Either way, there is no God-sent angel named Safe Passage.

It just so happened that when I stumbled upon the so-called revelation of this angel named Safe Passage I was already studying the topic of angels. In fact, I was in the midst of reading Dr. Lester Sumrall´s Angels to Help You for a second time.  Sumrall offered abundant Scripture about the reality of angels, the categories of angels-including their names and ranks - what angels do, what angels know, angels and prophecy, what kind of people receive angelic service, and much more.

Angels are real. Angels are mentioned 108 times in the Old Testament and 165 times in the New Testament. Angels are messengers. Angels are innumerable. The Bible mentions three angels by name: Michael, Gabriel and Lucifer. But beyond that, you have to go to religions like Zoroastrianism to find the names of angels.

Zoroastrianism, also called Mazdaism, is a religion based on a self-styled prophet named Zoroaster (also known as Avestan or Zarathustra). Zoroastrianism was once among the largest religions in the world, a political power in pre-Islamic Iran. Mazdaism believers prayed to angels like Ameretat, Asha Vahishta and Vohu Mano for protection.

In modern times, the New Age movement has an A-to-Z list of named angels, some of which are supposedly rooted in Scripture. There´s Abdiel, the professed "Angel of Faith." At the end of the
New Age list, you´ll find Zuriel, the "Angel of Harmony" who has dominion over the sun sign of Libra.

As you can see, false teaching about angels has been circulating the world since before Christ was born and well after He ascended to the right hand of the Father. False teachings about angels was an issue in the early church and it´s an issue in the end-time church. "And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into
an angel of light" (2 Cor. 11:14).

Paul had an apostolic message for those who hyper-focused on angels and their "teachings" at the expense of exalting Christ. Paul was so bold as to say that if he - or an angel from heaven - preached any other gospel than the gospel of Christ he should be accursed (Gal. 1:8). Those are pretty strong words and ones
that should be heeded before we preach sermons or pen articles that exalt angels.

Paul also said, "Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God" (Col. 2:18-19).

Matthew Henry, an 18th century minister whose well-known commentary provides an exhaustive verse-by-verse study of the Bible, gets to the root of such angel exaltation: "They advanced those notions to gratify their own carnal fancy, and were fond of being thought wiser than other people. Pride is at the bottom of
a great many errors and corruptions, and even of many evil practices, which have great show and appearance of humility."

Yes, angels are ministering spirits sent forth to minister to those who will inherit salvation (Heb. 1:14). That´s us! Angels are sent to execute God´s Word. By revelation of the Holy Spirit, David wrote, "Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word" (Ps.103:20).

Angels stand ready to obey the Word of God and bring it to pass. Yes, in a way angels may help provide us with safe passage.  When we make the Lord our dwelling place, no evil shall befall us nor shall any plague come near our dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over us, to keep us in all our ways. In their hands they shall bear us up, lest we dash our foot against a stone (Psalm 91:9-12). But there is no angel named Safe Passage, at least none of God´s angels.

One last thought: John mistakenly fell down to worship at the feet of an angel who had shown him the revelations he recorded in the book of Revelation. The angel immediately told him to worship God (Rev. 22:8-9). We don´t know the name of this angel. If it were important, the Holy Spirit would have revealed it. I suppose some in the modern church would name him "Revelation," - some may even claim "Revelation" is a female - and that would be yet another error.

Let me end with the words of Jesus Himself: "Take heed that no one deceives you... for false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect" (Mk 13:5; 22). Amen.

I do not personally read the Charisma magazine, as I find it usually highlights many of the preachers that I do not want to listen to or read about.  However this was sent to me as an email and I regard it as very important that the church knows about these deceptions that are carrying many away from the plain simple truth of Yeshua and his teachings.

The Bible speaks a lot about Onointing Oil and it was often used by faithful prophets to anoint Kings and High Priests in the Nation of Israel.

King Saul was anointed with Oil, Aaron was also anointed as the first High Priest and later King David was anointed by the prophet Samuel.

In the New Testament a Woman walked into the house of Simon and actually anointed Yeshua's feet with a very expensive oil called Nard.  The aroma filled the entire house and was a very special thing for that Woman to do...she recognised the importance of what she did for her Messiah King.

The carrier Oil used back then would have been Olive Oil, but as fragrances such as Myrrh and Frankincense were also used, they would have also been blended with Olive Oil to make an anointing Oil.  The Rose of Sharon is also mentioned in the Bible and refers to our dear Saviour King Yeshua, who has the wonderful qualities that only a beautiful Rose can replicate in the Flora Kingdom.

"For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing" (2 Corinthians 2:15).

The Bible speaks about the Oil of Gladness and last Wednesday evening when we were anointing various ones in the House of Prayer, the Lord gave me this phrase...the Oil of Gladness. Therefore I looked it up in the scriptures and there is was, in Hebrews 1:9 and also in Psalms and other places as well.    

The Oil of Gladness...The Oil Of Joy

The Bible makes reference to the oil of gladness and the word joy many times. A number of essential Oils contain aromas that fill the air and the person with Joy and Gladness.  Christine has been blending oils together for many years and now she has blended an amazing combination of wonderful Oils that bring joy to the heart. This Oil blend is a very effective mood enhancer. Some people have even been able to eliminate or reduce their dependance on antidepressant drugs by inhaling it, diffusing it in their homes, or rubbing it on their bodies.

Our emotions are very important for our health. The Bible tells us that as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.

What comprises our Oil of Gladness Essential Oil Blend?

Bergamot, geranium, mandarin, palmarosa, and rose.

Bergamot...builds confidence and lifts the emotions (It is used in Earl Grey Tea)

Rose... brings balance and harmony and creates a sense of Well-being and self confidence.

Geranium... helps release negative memories and emotions

Manderin... It is comforting, warming and soothing

Palmarosa... It has a fine scent and has a balancing effect on the skin
Scriptural verses that talk about the Oil of Joy and Gladness

Psalm 45:7 “Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.

Psalm 19:8 “The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.”

Proverbs 15:30 “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.”

Proverbs 27:9 “Perfume and oil bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice.”

Hebrews 1:9 ” You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.”

Isaiah 61: ..”to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.”

These Bible passages all have one thing in common...they refer to anointing oils (essential oils) as a means to help with joy, gladness, and rejoicing. Our physical state has a lot to do with our emotional state. They go hand in hand. Living Waters Oil blends bring joy to the heart because they reach the limbic system of your brain that stores your emotions, and they are able to release the negative energy and bring in positive thoughts and emotions

We are making our Oils available on our site http://www.zappertek.com/

Many blessings

At long last I have read the following words of a pastor who believes excatly what we believe...that Christians should have no part in the meanderings of this Worlds politics and Dominion Now ideology.  Jesus Christ came to build his Kingdom within his Saints and not a religio-political theocracy that many are seeking.

The book of Revelation is all about Gods Kingdom putting an end to all other Kingdoms...as prophecied by Daniel in 2:44

Read this article and this is what I have accepted all my life.



-by Rick Frueh.

I remain simply astounded at the response to my posts on nationalism, patriotism, and idolatry. I am convinced the Spirit is actively doing a work of grace in many, many hearts. Just so everyone knows where

I am in my journey I want to share. But do not think that your perspective has to mirror mine, or that you will be bullied if you are in a different place. But it would be edifying for brothers and sisters to sharpen each other´s iron.  I was brought up in a middle class home that went to a Lutheran church. I was baptized as an infant and I went for three years to catechism after which I was confirmed as a member.

But I was still lost. But I was raised in a common patriotic family who watched the 4th of July parade and voted Republican. We always displayed a flag on the fourth.  But in 1975 I was born again. My life was changed and I was  delivered from drugs and immorality and violence. But one thing that did not change was my patriotic perspective. I never questioned it and since all the new believers I met were also patriotic Americans it just seemed like a non-issue. And even after I became a pastor I held patriotic services on the fourth of July weekend. I can remember pledging allegiance to the flag on that Sunday as well as singing a couple patriotic songs. We were good American Christians.

During those years I can remember listening to radio and television people who held "conservative" political perspectives. Some would castigate the "liberals" and mock and berate them. And since being a politically active conservative seemed to be the evangelical way, I never questioned the Biblical nature of such verbiage.

When Iraq invaded Kuwait I can remember the patriotic pitch rising dramatically, and even in evangelical churches there was a frothing of the mouth concerning the coming war. The emotions ran high, and if someone even questioned all it they were considered liberal or at least some 60´s hippie throwback. And I can remember listening to the radio and television updates about how the coalition (America) was winning the war. Even the phrase "shock and awe" was a rallying cry!

It was around that time that men like Rush Limbaugh began what we now call talk radio and now talk television. And since we were all patriotic Americans who revered the Constitution and the founding
fathers, we didn´t notice the caustic and self righteous rhetoric.  Mocking liberals and demeaning jokes about President Clinton were commonplace and accepted even among preachers. The snowball got bigger and bigger and the evangelical church became very smug and self assured.

But in the late 1990´s something began to eat at my insides. I could not put my foot on it but something just seemed wrong with all the saber rattling and incendiary language. I would speak with my best friend about it and he too was feeling uncomfortable. One day he asked me for Scriptural support for a violent overthrow of the American government if we disagreed with its tax policy. I thought he had lost it! I told him there was absolutely no Scriptural grounds for violence over money, none. Then he asked me why then would God support the Revolutionary War? And where was Scriptural support for that war?

I was stunned. I had never even considered the Scriptural validity of the Revolutionary War. In the crowd I ran with that would have been considered treasonous just to ask such a question. In some circles it still is.

I did a study of the New Testament just to allow the Spirit to guide me without any preconceived attitudes. It soon became obvious, I had been sold a bill of goods.

Our allegiance is to Christ and Christ alone. To pledge allegiance to any earthly government is a form of spiritual treason. It does not mean you are not saved or that you do not love the Lord Jesus, but it does mean you are blind to that form of open idolatry. If we are to be honest, it is indefensible. But I was blind and I had to repent. And I would suffer criticism and even verbal persecution from some who were my friends.

It was surprising how personally believers take even a discussion in this realm.  And then there was the battle of self righteousness and any air of superiority. Whenever the Spirit guides me into a truth that substantially changes the way I think and behave, the devil and my flesh immediately urge me to feel superior to others with whom I had agree not too long ago. Isn´t the flesh such a diabolical and clever enemy? I still need to guard against that kind of feeling.

And in November of 2000 I cast my last vote for George Bush. And during the last 12 years I have examined many things concerning politics and the New Testament. While we are called to obey the authorities, we are never called to join with them. Politics is an unholy alliance of the saved and the unsaved. And when we resort to the ballot box, we dilute the gospel. The world sees us involved in changing the outside of the cup and subsequently they are not confronted with the eternal aspect of the gospel message. They see us as a moral religion not a faith of redemption.

So now I ask for your thoughts... - Rick Frueh

Be blessed
