“I was really skeptical and have been for some years when people were saying that the Enneagram was demonic,” she said, adding that the “Lord prompted” her to study it. Her conclusion: “It’s evil.” “It’s… doctrines of demons, divination, witchcraft,” she said. “And I had no idea.”
Jesus said on the Mount of Olives (Matt. 24) that deception would be the primary cultural sign of the last days. Even some of God’s “elect” might be deceived by false theologies. “Good would be called evil and evil good” (Isaiah 5:20). Men would substitute light for darkness and darkness for light. Apostasy would consume churches and denominations that were once solid.
And because we’re made in God’s image and in God’s likeness, you can call us Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Christ in us, the Everlasting Father, whoo! The Prince of Peace. That’s what it means to be the gift that Jesus gave to you.”
Grave soaking – or mantle grabbing – is the act of lying across the physical grave of a deceased preacher or evangelist for the purpose of ‘pulling out’ the power of the Holy Spirit, a power that was supposedly ‘trapped’ within the body upon the person’s death.
When one of the most popular Christian leaders in America focuses more on self-improvement, personal finances, and positive thinking than on the essential doctrines of the faith such as repentance from sin, sanctification, and the atoning work of Jesus Christ, there’s a problem. The prosperity gospel preached by men such as Joel Osteen has been described as biblically anemic theology. And millions have fallen for it.
The blind and spiritually misinformed hypotheses of the Enneagram are dangerous, deceitful, and antithetical to Christianity. Unfortunately, many in the Church have been drawn into this doctrine of demons—I do not use that phrase lightly. It is one of many last days deceptions leading believers away from the Gospel, the Bible, and Christ and into searching for humanistic or mystical understandings of who we are instead of what God’s Word clearly says.
