Exposing Satan's Final Solution For Christians
The purpose of Dark Light has been daringly stated, and yet, it is so obvious that it reminds me of a thief carrying a stereo out of a store in full view of all. Its obviousness, in this case, is its covering. Dark Light is somebody's final solution for Christians. This somebody has been boldly identified. He is Satan.
Dark Light is about Satan's Final Solution For Christians. Why did Stewart not choose to subtitle his book like this: "Exposing Satan's Final Solution For Christians"? If he did, his subtitle would be appropriate for a Christian work. The subtitle indicates that his book is furthering Satan's agenda for Christians.
Christians must not be ignorant of Satan's devices. (See 2 Cor. 2:11) This series of articles will reveal the Dark Light Series' major satanic devices.
Methodology of Best's Strait Gate and Narrow Way is Initiation
Stewart Best has plucked many scriptures out of context to "prove" that real Christians are on their way to hell because they have not employed the correct methodology in order to encounter the particular essence of Christ that He claims will set them free. This Ultimate Reality that Christians are told they need to unite with is not the Christ of Calvary, the Christ who shed his blood on the cross for the sins of many. Oh, no, that is merely the historical Christ, according to Stewart. [note: The Ultimate Reality is a New Age term.]
God's people are told with unceasing repetition in Stewart Best's Dark Light Series that they will suffer an eternity in hellfire if they do not have an encounter with another aspect of Christ—the "Living" Christ. Stewart says it is an inner radiant Christ who will give you "agape love" and "set you free." (Note: It is mystics—not Christians— who bear testimony of an inner radiant reality!)
We know that according to New Age teachings, Lucifer
(who is really Satan who "was cast down to the ground") comes to "set free" all who will accept his final gift of wholeness:
"Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it, then he is free and we are free. That is the Luciferic initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age." (Spangler, _Reflections_, p.45).
Stewart Best's strait gate/ narrow way theology is being likened to the Luciferic Initiation because Stewart insists that it is not the person of the Lord Jesus Christ who sets the Christian free, but rather, another truth, a secret aspect of Christ that Best claims will set one free. A seeking, striving, suffering Christian must wait for an indeterminate amount of time for this "aspect of truth" which Stewart describes using
occult terminology—inner radiant essence—to come to him in his inner man to set him free!
fundamental aspect of being 'set free', in the eyes of occult practitioners, is being able to connect with one's human spirit, or spirit man. This is exactly what Stewart Best's Narrow Way doctrine teaches.]
The methodology of the Strait Gate and Narrow Way is definitely initiation--complete with voluntary "death." Stewart terms this experience, which he says is totally experiential, "soul death."
The idea of death always goes together with initiation, which those in the occult believe leads to spiritual birth:
Let us come back once more to the primitive mysteries of initiation. Everywhere we have found the symbolism of death as the ground of spiritual birth - that is, of regeneration. In all these contexts. death signifies the surpassing of the profane, non-sanctified condition, the condition of the 'natural man', ignorant of religion and blind to the spiritual. (See: Rites of Passage)
Stewart Best Targets the Real Christian
Stewart's writings target the remnant Christian, the one God has called out of the falling away church. The remnant Christian is Satan's only obstacle in furthering his plans on earth both now and during the
Tribulation. Hence, his "final solution" for the remnant problem is the incredibly deceptive Dark Light Series. These writings are so diabolically clever that it is taking me a long time to organize and put into writing the insights God has given me regarding Stewart Best's unique "salvation teachings."
I have seen firsthand that Stewart's disciples frequent the message forums of serious, committed Christians. You will not find them on the many fueling-the-falling-away Christian forums. They seek out the remnant and also the Christian forums that discuss the New World Order.
Stewart's doctrines are convincing real Christians to abandon their genuine, abiding, obedient faith in the real Lord Jesus Christ (Yes, the historical Christ—the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending... which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty) and replace their faith with what Stewart calls the Strait Gate and Narrow Way which
(he asserts) leads to life. In reality, this narrow way is a spiritual journey that
culminates in an occult initiation within the spirit of the Christian.
Strait Gate/Narrow Way Revealed!
I will prove that this initiation is actually an occult initiation which gives Satan permission to enter into the Christian's temple and to stand in that holy place as if he was God. (See 2 Thess. 2) Yes, the elect can be deceived if it is possible, according to the Lord Jesus Christ. He would not have warned his disciples to take heed that they be not deceived if deception was not possible:
And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. Luke 21:8
We are seeing one example of the fulfillment of Jesus' words in the teachings of Stewart Best. Stewart is teaching that another Christ or more specifically, another aspect of Christ will save. This another aspect of Christ is not the Jesus Christ of the Bible, who is dismissed as a mere "historical" Christ, but another Christ—an inner radiant essence of Christ. Stewart exhorts Christians to disobey the plain words of the Jesus Christ who shed his blood for you (there is no other name under heaven whereby we may be saved) and go after another Christ—an inner, mysterious, hidden "Christ" that is called by New Age names and appears to you in a New Age experience. Go not after him.
Teaching Paves the Way For Occult Doctrine
The bogus "two hearts of man doctrine" is simply Stewart's way to project onto the Bible the distinctively occult teaching that a Christian must become conscious of his spirit:
The Strait Gate and Narrow Way represent the journey from our conscious hearts and confession of faith through the subconscious, past it and beyond, to the inner chamber of ourselves. It is in here that Christ will enter into union with us. (hardcopy of Dark Light, Chapter 6 p 37)
If a Christian succeeds in gaining the conscious awareness of his own spirit, he becomes
capable of receiving messages and extra manipulation from the demonic spirit realm!
New Agers who journey down The Path in their
search for further "enlightenment" achieve the awareness of their spirits with the aid of devils, whether they realize it or not. Beware. A Christian will achieve it the same way. Yes, God communicates to us through our spirits, but we are not consciously aware of our spirits; we cannot contact our human spirit at will...unless we take great pains to learn how to do
so. This occult practice opens a person up to being especially manipulated
by the demonic realm. This is accomplished by using occult techniques in order to achieve an altered state of consciousness. This is strictly off limits for the Christian! Those who study occult "mysteries" seek this experience because it is what is needed for them to communicate with the spirit realm.
Some occultists actually use the phrase, "Narrow Way" to describe their own journey toward enlightenment and higher consciousness. In fact, they liken the path of the "narrow way"—which they believe leads to light and life—with initiation. (Source: Section One - The Aspirant and the Mysteries of Initiation) Stewart failed to mention any of this of course, but instead, tried to use God's Holy Word to substantiate his dark teachings. I will prove that the "Christ" that Stewart Best urges his readers to meet in their own spirit is not an "aspect" of the real Lord Jesus Christ, but is actually a demon spirit.
Stewart has attempted to shelter himself from scrutiny by saying that God wants to "rip" apart a Christian's soul and spirit. God himself supposedly works this occult initiation by making the Christian quite aware of his spirit by "ripping" it away from his soul. This is all doubletalk to confuse the reader into not realizing that Stewart is teaching that the soul and spirit of the Christian must become joined together. This is a diversionary tactic to attempt to cover what he has clearly done with his writings: tell the Christian he must utilize an occult methodology to go deep within himself in order to encounter a spirit who is not the Holy Spirit. This spirit, according to Best, will set him free.
The "Many" are Not Who Stewart Says They Are!
Stewart has already revealed that what he calls "authentic regeneration" it is only for the very few and not for the many. The Bible says that "the many" that Jesus never knew were "workers of iniquity." That is why they were rejected. The iniquity they worked was not the refusal to meet another essence of Christ in their spirits!
The "many" are not those who refuse to walk the Strait Gate and Narrow Way—via the Stewart Best way. This way is really "regeneration" by occult initiation. Stewart changed the biblical meaning of the phrase "the many," which Jesus defined as "workers of iniquity," and changed it into his version of "the many"— people who will not consent to his occult rendering of the Strait Gate and Narrow Way!
Granted, Stewart Best never used the words, "occult initiation" to describe his SG/NW doctrine, but the methodology is the same; complete with mystical, New Age jargon to go with it.
Stewart's doctrines are esoteric. Esoteric is "a word used to describe knowledge that is possessed or understood only by a few." The doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ are not hidden, and he does not require (or permit) people to lose all faith right before they encounter him! Coming to the knowledge of the mystery of Christ is not coming to the knowledge of a bogus "Christ" who will come to meet you once your faith is gone, your hope is gone, and all is lost.
I have documentation forthcoming with Stewart's quotes and other information to prove that Stewart's Strait Gate/ Narrow Way doctrine is occult to the core. It is very easy to be deceived by him because he makes a great show of using copious amounts of scripture which he subjects to his even more abundant, and heavily capitalized commentary.
If you have come to the realization that Stewart's subtitle for Dark Light really is no accident—even if this early article in the series has not yet convinced you that the series is fundamentally flawed—you can make great gains in your own personal freedom from Satan's control over your mind via the Dark Light Series if you renounce the work of darkness that you are aware of—in this case the subtitle: Satan's Final Solution For Christians. Please do not be too sophisticated to obey the Holy Bible and renounce the hidden things of dishonesty and all false teachings that come from the teacher handling the word of God deceitfully. (See 2 Cor. 4:2) Here is a suggested way to verbally do this:
In the name of Jesus Christ I renounce Satan's "Solution" in my life through the vehicle of the Dark Light Series. I reject Satan's teachings in whatever form they come, including any and all of his teachings in the Dark Light Series.
Dear Father in Heaven, please help me to understand and discern the doctrines in Dark Light that are not of you—that are not of your Holy Word. I want to bring every thought captive to the obedience of Jesus Christ. The real Jesus Christ—the Word who was manifest in the flesh, shed his blood and died for my sins, was buried, and rose again to sit at your right hand. Please deliver me from all false teachings and all
spirits from teachings and false Christs. Help me to follow you only.
—In Jesus' name, Amen.
