Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jessica Blake. I am a believer and follower of Christ who was delivered from the New Age faith. For those not familiar with the New Age faith, it is a belief system that promotes the idea that there are many spiritual paths and truths that lead to God and enlightenment. I will be honest and say that it was very difficult for me to accept Christ as my Saviour because the narrow road to salvation felt restrictive and exclusive (coming from the New Age faith). However, I can now see that God had a very specific plan for my life. My resistance to the truth only delayed the inevitable.
Looking back, I can see that God sent a few key believers to cross my life path. They all planted very specific seeds of God’s truth and helped prepare my mind for the day that I would meet my husband. When we first started dating, my husband took the time to explain the biblical scriptures and the deep meanings behind Jesus’ teachings to me. Although I saw historical, archaeological, and prophetic proof that Jesus was who He said He was, I still felt compelled to study and dissect all of the major world religions to try and find another way. My years of research revealed that my husband was right after all. Jesus was indeed the one and only way to a right relationship with God.
After I accepted Christ as my Saviour, I gladly surrendered most parts of my life but not all. I held on tight to my New Age occult practices (e.g., astrology, divination, yoga, Reiki). It took years for the Holy Spirit to convict me and help me let it all go. After I was completely delivered from the New Age faith, I was instructed to write a book and organize an online ministry named ‘Seeker Ministries’ that would focus on spiritual truth and help point people to the gospel and Christ.
