To Lighthouse Trails:
My sister-in-law is deceived by Jesus Calling. They are now on a mission/vacation trip to Kenya. They have supported a young girl for years and are going to meet her on this trip. I communicated to her our prayers for their safety.
I knew she had been deeply steeped in Jesus Calling, and she sent me a copy years ago enclosing a note of how it had changed her life. My husband, in turn, sent her a copy of Warren Smith’s book, Another Jesus Calling, but I have concluded she did not read it. Her response to me regarding her upcoming trip was, they were going on an adventure and God had a surprise for them and they were so excited to find out what the surprise was and looked forward to sharing with family and friends this great surprise they had yet to encounter.
Sadly, she cannot see that this response was all about her. Her adventure, her surprise from God waiting for her in Kenya. Everything she wrote had Jesus Calling influence and rhetoric straight from the book, Jesus Calling. It is about feeling good about yourself and God serving you and not you serving God. Sad so many can’t see. If she realized what the message relayed, I am sure she would not have written it, but they are blind and cannot see.
This deception is very dangerous, and I feel the longer one stays in the deception, the less likely he or she will be able to come out of it because it pulls one deeper into the occult. We are His ambassadors, not the other way around.
May God reveal the deception so they can see they are being guided by a counterfeit “Jesus” that Satan has devised for their destruction.
1 Corinthians 10:21: Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
