Andrew Strom has re-ignited concerns which have surfaced periodically since the time of the Toronto Blessing in 1994. The outspoken New Zealand preacher has written a book entitled ‚Kundalini Warning‘ which suggests that false spirits are invading the church.
I researched the New Age Movement (and its associated eastern spiritualities) back in the late 80s/early 90s and spoke, (by invitation at that time) to many church groups on the subject.
Awakening the Kundalini is the expression used by mystics, Hindu gurus and New Agers for the practice of focussing on a ‚serpent spirit‘ which, they say, resides in each one of us in the form of a coiled snake located at the base of the spine. Through meditation and physical body positioning the aim is to ‚raise the Kundalini‘ through a total of seven spiritual waypoints – called ‚Chakras‘ – located along the spine.
The aim is to elevate the Kundalini spirit to the ‚Crown Chakra‘ which is located at the top of the skull. Those who have gone through this process have described it as ‚mind-blowing‘.
I threw the ‚best‘ book I had on the subject into the waste bucket as I didn’t want it in my home, and I wouldn’t want to quote from it in this article anyway.
The practice, which is spiritually dangerous in the extreme, is often linked with Yoga-like exercises associated with eastern meditation and mysticism. Chanting and essentially self-hypnotic routines can be a ‚way in‘.
Andrew Strom believes that these phenomena – stretching back to the Toronto Blessing – represent the ‚worst invasion [of deceiving spirits] in church history‘ and, in his concern, goes as far as controversaly ‚naming names‘. It is up to the reader to exercise his/her own discernment on all that is contained in the following.
KUNDALINI WARNING – Urgent
-by Andrew Strom.
I just saw the video of Rick Joyner announcing that Todd Bentley is back ministering every night at Morningstar in North Carolina and now they have so-called „revival“ manifestations eerily similar to Lakeland. They also announced that they are streaming these big meetings every night on their new TV channel – and they are greatly promoting the whole thing.
Now I am a tongues-speaking Pentecostal myself – but can I ask a simple question here please? What kind of „spirit“ was it operating in the Lakeland revival – when the leader and main focal- point of the meetings (Todd Bentley) was having an adulterous affair behind the scenes? Was it truly the „Holy“ Spirit that was anointing something so sensual and unholy? And now that Todd divorced his wife and married his mistress – are we supposed to welcome him back and this „anointing“ with him? What is going on here? Rick Joyner has been warned very specifically by high- level ministries not to do what he is doing now – bringing Todd Bentley back into the limelight. And yet it seems he does not care. Apparently the „manifestations“ are all that matter.
