Sid: Hello. Sid Roth here with Mike Shreve. And Mike, I explained a little bit about my background and you explained a little bit about yours because this book, “Truthseekers”, is so vital. What did God tell you would happen with this book? 

Mike: Well at the end of writing the book, I was awakened one morning and I heard the audible voice of God say, “Bumper crop.” And to be honest with you, I had no idea what a bumper crop was. So I went to the dictionary and looked it up and it means an extraordinarily high yield of harvest. What does that mean? That means there’s millions of people, I believe, that are going to be affected by this book, that are going to be harvested unto the Lord Jesus Christ as a result of the wonderful stories and testimonies. 

Sid: Are there many people involved in the New Age today? 

Mike: Oh, it permeates. 

Sid: You were telling me some statistics. 

Mike: Well between 1990 and the year 2000, Christianity, according to a reputable poll, only grew 5%. But during that same period of time, the New Age grew 240%. Now that difference continues unabated into the future. The New Age ideas, the New Age philosophy is going to just totally take over the world. 

Sid: Well no it’s not. We’re going to win. 

Mike: Yes, sir, definitely. 

Sid: But that’s what its goal is. And as a matter fact, most people are looking at Islam as the End Time key player in the last days. I think and Mike thinks it’s the New Age. 

Mike: Yes, the New Age. 

Sid: Tell me what their strategy is. 

Mike: Well if it’s all right, let me mention this. Three means by which the stage will be set for the Antichrist and that’s governmental, which is the New World Order political agenda and then economic, international banking elite that are moving us towards a one-world currency. And then you have the spirituality side of this three-part stage that is being set for the Antichrist, and that’s the New Age. And the reason the New Age is the perfect religious philosophy to under-gird the Antichrist is because it embraces everybody. It says all paths are legitimate paths to God. And so it will seem as though the whole world is being harmonized under this particular philosophy. 

Sid: Well you know, everyone is looking at Islam. I have a theory. When everyone is looking at one particular thing, the devil is not wasting his time. He wants you to look. It’s almost like a diversion. 

Mike: It’s a smoke screen. 

Sid: It’s, I’ll tell you what, there are people that are watching us right now and you have been touching on the new age and you are in the new age. For instance, witchcraft, communicating with the dead, going to fortune tellers. What are some of the other areas? 

Mike: Tarot cards, yoga, meditation. 

Sid: Reincarnation. You know, the Bible says you live once and then comes the Judgment. As a matter of fact, you don’t have to keep coming back when you believe in Jesus because you become the righteousness of God in the site of Jesus. You can’t get any more righteous. I mean, and who would want to come back as an animal or a human, or anything? I mean, I want to walk with intimacy with God. I want the truth. And as Pontius Pilot said, “What is truth?” Speak to a new-ager about truth right now.

Mike: Jesus said, “I am the truth.” When I was a new-ager, I didn’t think it was important to come to Jesus. I was told that forgiveness of sins, that’s not necessary. We evolve through many incarnations to perfection. But when I was confronted with Christianity and biblical truth the whole scenario changed. Then God becomes personal. And if I come to him at the cross I’m forgiven of my sins. Jesus paid the price so that sins could be cleansed. I didn’t know if it would work or not. I really had a lot of misgivings. But I invited Jesus to come into my heart. I said, “If you’re there, if you’re my Messiah I accept you as my savior. Forgive me of my sins. Fill me with the Holy Spirit.” And it happened. And for the first time in my life I had an encounter with God. I cannot persuade you intellectually that Jesus is the only way. But if you get a similar experience, an encounter with God, that supernatural reality of God coming back into your heart and life will show you that the cross and the resurrection, and the biblical point of view truly is the only way to a relationship with God being restored. 

Sid: And you know, Mike, the thing that I like to say is you’re at such a low level of spirituality if you’re in the new age that why would you ever want to settle with a cheap spiritual counterfeit when you can taste the real thing. I’m reminded what Mike said when he was challenged, just as your challenged right now. Is that I’m going to take a day, where I tell you don’t even take a day. Prayer a prayer that goes something like this, in your own words: Dear Jesus, I’ve committed many sins for which I’m so sorry. I believe your blood washes away my sins. I believe I’m clean and now that I’m clean Jesus, as Mike said, come into me and become Lord of my life. Pray that right now and you will never, ever be the same because the love of God will flood you.
