Mysticism is not so much about figuring out the secrets of the fairies and the frequencies as it is about enjoying our union with the Person of Jesus and the fruit thereof!
Looking at the google search, they give two interesting definitions. One is about union, the other is about delusion. (Neither are really fully accurate, though the first is a much better option!)
There are tons of “spiritual” teachers and web sites out there teaching about new moons, techniques, and hidden knowledge…and some are making decent money doing it.
I’m not against all of this, the wise men were led to Jesus by a star! However, right there is the clarity! Is it leading to glorifying Jesus? Does it make you more excited about Jesus Christ and our union with Him, or is it just an accumulation of spiritual sounding knowledge? Is it manifesting the fruit of Holy Spirit, or just confusing supernatural phenomena?
Truly, there is only One Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus! This is the Spirit that heals, restores, and manifests the love, joy, peace, patience, etc! However, men’s confusion has manifested illusions for generations. Not everything that sounds spiritual is life giving mysticism!
Why am I writing this?
I love mystics and Jesus Christ mysticism!
I want to see billions of people dive full on into the real thing!!
Jesus Christ is rich in multi-colored, multi-faceted experiences! There is no lack in Him! There is no high like the Most High!
I’ve tasted and seen some amazing stuff effortlessly in Him…but I’ve also seen friends get excited about any random spiritual sounding thing…and almost always their life starts to fall apart later.
No need to fear. Just keep drinking of the name above every other name! Holy Spirit is a great communicator!
Go deep in and with Jesus! Meditate and levitate…with HIM!
