SELF is at the Core of Contemplative prayer as well as TM

The contemplative prayer that Mike Bickle
promotes at IHOP is all about “self”.

    YOU want to get in God’s presence.

      YOU want to feel him inside of you so strongly.

        It is all you, you, you!

        The only problem is that “god” that’s inside of you, that feeling you get? That is not our Heavenly Father but rather the complete opposite.

        And when you put yourself before your Heavenly Father, you’ve made yourself THE important one.

        Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there. And so that person is worse off than before. That will be the experience of this evil generation.

        So congratulations. If you’re doing contemplative prayer you have just entered being part of the “evil generation” according to what Jesus is told us. It’s nothing short of transcendental meditation. It is absolutely identical. The only way you can effectively practice contemplative prayer is to have your mind reaches state of complete nothingness, just like transcendental meditation.

        And from this contemplative prayer, Mike Bickel has said this is where he’s gotten a lot of his ideas. Ideas as to Which Way, “God” wants him to go. The only problem is it’s not God who’s telling him to go in any direction. His directions are coming from a Satanic level which is why IHOP is responsible for breaking so many families apart and taking so many young minds and warping them.
        IF you are practicing contemplative prayer and truly do want to be in the center of God’s will, then repent. Turn from it and never go back. Ask for His forgiveness. He can clean you up and then fill you with Himself.

        I have seen too many believers in Christ falling into the trap of practicing "Christianized New Age" and still calling it holy. Contemplative prayer is nothing more ( or less) than TM. Totally unscriptural. I encourage anyone who's interested in knowing the truth of God's word to dig in daily and SEARCH - be like the Bereans - FIND OUT if the teachings, messages, books you've read or radio speakers you've heard are dissecting God's word correctly. If they're not, throw out what you've heard. Trash it. God demands we STUDY to show ourselves approved. BE a Berean. Acts 17: 10-11

        1. I think you have something along the lines of a correct conclusion from a false premise. Particularly:

          “YOU want to get in God’s presence.

          YOU want to feel him inside of you so strongly.

          It is all you, you, you!”

          That would be analogous to telling my wife that I want to be near her and feel her love, and then someone calling me selfish for it. Wouldn’t that be a bit odd?

        2. I think what has been lost is the part about walking by faith. You know… Walk by faith and not by sight. We live in an instant pudding generation who want everything now, now, now. That’s a very bad place to be especially spiritually.
