U-JUDGE-IT: Is this a "true" miracle?

I recently saw a video of a miracle healing service. Since it is video, I would like to give you the play-by-play of the video and then afterward we will discuss it. Some of the video was in broken English and french so I will paraphrase where needed.

The narrator begins...

"As humans, we tend to believe only what we see. That limits the miraculous because there is a completely different realm of experience for us in the invisible world!"

The video plays... the people pray... and holy hands are laid on the sick. Many have been healed and now a certain woman is seeking to experience a healing as well.

She begins to weep. Something is happening. She looks toward heaven in prayer. The music continues to play and a singer lifts her voice in song. Has she received her miracle?

After the service, the young woman is interviewed. She speaks a foreign language (French) but her words are translated at the bottom of the screen.

She says: "The woman continued to sing and then something happened... I received a huge impact of emotion. I was destabilized but in a good way. I was not sad, no anguish, only a good thing as I received a ball of light... love,... a ton of love came over me! I thought it was just the (people praying for me). But... I felt (God's) hands on my heart. I received an intense diffusion of heat emitting from his hand and going all over... (she points all over her body) a diffusion... like the roots of a tree."

Sound familiar? It happens at many churches every Sunday during the worship service. It happens at many Christian youth camps and retreats. It also happens at Todd Bentley's "Florida Outpouring". Is God moving? You be the judge!

My question is this... What makes this pagan experience DIFFERENT from any similar church experience?

My answer is NOTHING except that no one mentioned Jesus!

Does that shock you? Does that make you mad?

How can I dare to compare a church worship service to a shaman ritual?

But I am not comparing shamanism to Christianity. I am stating and showing that we can not claim ANYTHING is of God based on a physical EXPERIENCE.

EVERYTHING must be backed by the written, revealed Word of God. Otherwise you have nothing to back you and therefore nothing to test.

2Ti 3:13-17 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

I don't need ANYTHING except the Scriptures to test all things. It is my COMPLETE testing kit. If something falls outside the testability range we call it FALSE.

People can go anywhere to get lights, fire, electricity, and a deep feeling of emotion. But it is without relation to Jesus Christ.

As there is NOTHING to test in the above video that deals with spiritual things, I can (with authority) state that it is unbiblical, ungodly, false teaching and pagan.

But guess what? If YOUR experience/healing/miracle does not have a scriptural precedent, I can do no more with it than I can the above video. I MUST call it false and ignore it... and lead people AWAY from it!

Or do you really expect me to believe and follow YOUR WORD over GOD'S WORD?

I heard a similar story of a woman who was touched by a new age guru. She said she felt this overwhelming sense of love after he took her through a few "techniques".

This must be the false demonic love that's driving the humanistic one world religious order. These people are opening themselves up to possession.

Brian Flynn during his first psychic reading said he could feel a ball of light floating over his head too and the psychic saw it even without him indicating he was feeling anything. (he was subsequently converted after a long time of messing around with this evil stuff).

It is shameful how we go after other gods and think it's OK because we call them Jesus.
