DON’T BE LUKEWARM – GET RID OF ALL YOUR CRYSTALS by Ayala Nunez
As once a New Ager, I possessed a decent sized collection of crystals and rocks that I collected from so-called sacred places, like Saqsayhuaman, Machu Picchu, the Great Serpent Mound, Chichen Itza, and many many others. It was most certainly a thing to do, as once a New Age practitioner of things. We often utilized such materials in order to enhance a spell, an intention, or to even open gateways or portals to the other realms and/or dimensions.
But the one debate that seems to arise quite frequently, as of late, is a question which is brought up by many former New Agers whom desire to similarly walk away from the New Age Deception, and that question is this: CAN I STILL HOLD-ON TO THEM… my rocks, crystals and even to hold-on to some of my old New Age books? And the reason for this (of course) is that they understandably still hold value and a connection to them. To walk away from the New Age, let alone to walk away from near and dear possessions, is not an easy feat, for sure. But, we must also be conscious and fully made aware of the very word that I used within the past sentence, and that word is “possessions”. In many ways, the use of such a word is so very subtle. But again, that is how the serpent of all serpents operates. His strategy has never changed. There is nothing new under the sun. In continuing on, there is a logical and eye-opening reason why we call these materialistic goods… POSSESSIONS… for we can continue to potentially put ourselves at risk of demonic “possession”. When we continue to hold-on to them, even from just mere seemingly harmless sentimental value, we can put ourselves at risk of demonic possession. And as recently mentioned quite frequently from past articles, this demonic possession is parasitic in nature. Demonic success cannot be obtained without a host.
As for me, I had ridden myself of everything that was considered to be New Age material, A.K.A. Paganistic paraphernalia. Similarly, this included books, crystals, sacred rocks, jewelry, sculptures, different tarot card decks – YOU NAME IT!
I TRASHED THEM ALL!!!
At one point, I was torn from even doing so, and I thought the same, as most transitioners do, in believing within our minds that it was still perfectly fine that we could still hold-on to such pagan tools of the New Age, not only because we spent a considerable amount of money on them, but also from the mere fact that we thought that it would be such a waste to dispose of them because of their beauty! But there was also an underlying reason: We were still connected to them!
AND WHY IS THIS THE CASE?
Well, that’s where we have to identify the underlying cause of the deception from the very first pace, not only the beauty and attractiveness of the New Age story, but because of its first and foremost creator – Satan, the dragon, himself.
BUT (YES) AT THE END OF THE DAY… what are we willing to sacrifice, in order to be true followers of GOD ALMIGHTY? What are we willing to give up in order to be one with THE HOLY SPIRIT? What are we willing to fast for in order to follow the TRUE PATH OF CHRIST?
For me, especially, it was the New Age podcast radio network that I had initially built from scratch, from the ground-up, back in 2015. This was what I had to sacrifice. And I knew that it was entirely wrong to continue to produce shows which supported the New Age Movement (ancient and olden pagan theosophy) when once Revelation was provided to me by the HOLY SPIRIT, concerning the falsity of such paganistic banter. For others, all they had to do was merely sacrifice their crystal collection. But to them, this was and could quite verily be (indeed) a huge game-changing event, as is mostly the case when such a transition is made.
LOOK! WE MUST CHOOSE!!!
Once more, it’s either you’re in or you’re out. And you don’t have to question me, nor even ridicule me (per say), but rather read SCRIPTURE instead, and ask yourself what THE WORD OF GOD is asking from you. When people keep such possessions, you have to lay it down for what it really is…
THEY ARE ONLY MAKING EXCUSES!!!
Yes, it sounds (to me) that they are making a last ditch attempt just to merely say that they are making excuses for the crystal’s beauty, but sometimes the glitter and the glory of sparkle can only be (obviously) the diversion and the distraction from the ultimate TRUTH to why we do things when we choose the materialistic things of this world, over GOD! Is it the SPIRIT that we treasure the most, or is it the flesh. The crystal is merely materialistic in means within the desires of the flesh (a worldly thing), but the SPIRIT is what we are ultimately aiming for, in solitude.
If we are to make parallels, we must read Daniel 2:1-23 and Nebuchadnezzar’s dream
In Daniel 4, Nebuchadnezzar (the king) experienced a very disturbing dream. And it bothered him tremendously. So, the king asked Daniel to interpret his dream and Daniel provocatively tells him that the dream is all about him. The tree was actually Nebuchadnezzar, himself, and that he was to chop this tree down to a bare stump. Then, to be left out in the wilderness seven-fold to live among the animals and among the most bare of elements, within nature. After being exposed to the wilderness, naked and vulnerable but at the same time humbled, Nebuchadnezzar would then truly experience the heights of his prosperity as a newly founded king, stripped of all the worldly things which had (from all this time) decreased his value and worth as a prominent leader of his kingdom.
The Fourth Chapter of the Bible’s Book of Daniel (DANIEL 4), is presented in the form of a letter from king Nebuchadnezzar II in which he learns a lesson of God’s sovereignty, “who is able to bring low those who walk in pride”. Nebuchadnezzar dreams of a great tree that shelters the whole world, but an angelic “watcher” appears and decrees that the tree must be cut down and that for seven years he will have his human mind taken away and will eat grass like an ox. This comes to pass, and at the end of his punishment, Nebuchadnezzar praises God. Daniel’s role is to interpret the dream for the king https://youtu.be/M4aWfPAbD-0
In a sense, there’s some manipulative under stones here, which can be observed quite blatantly, when people refuse to detach from such materialistic things.
So (yes) the contents of this argument absolutely matters – very much so! And it must not be taken lightly, at all! Look, when people enthusiastically state that they are leaving the New Age, we must always question the potential fact, that quite possibly it’s all just an act. It’s merely a stage show, for whatever means to justify their means to an end. When, in actuality, such people still continue to desire to abide by a deceptive mindset (The Mind Control) that was initially meant by Satan to manipulate the masses through such passive aggressive gestures.
The intent of this article is not to place judgement, but to absolutely place righteous judgement within the mix – meaning don’t be a hypocrite! If you say that you’re going to leave the New Age, then do it entirely! Don’t do it half ass. Be sound in your judgement. Don’t say you love GOD, but yet you still admire Satan. Be real! Be authentic. Be true to your master! You can only serve one. Otherwise, to double-dip between the two is merely waving the flag derived from the characteristics of a Lukewarm Christian.
So, don’t be offended when I say: ONE CANNOT BE LUKEWARM!
All of this matters! When you follow the New Age, there is no moral code. You defy “The Law”. But when you follow THE BIBLE, then you are abiding by a legitimate and authentic Moral Code of Conduct.
Thus, Righteous Judgement comes into play. “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” ~John 7:24.
Absolute nonjudgement is absurd and is the one thing, or mantra so to speak, that satan and the New Age preaches, so very arrogantly. Now, if you spent a significant amount of money on your crystals that you once used for satanic and paganistic ways, then one must entirely leave such devices alone. You have to understand the fact that such devices, although no longer used in such demonic ways, still carries the energy and soul of such use. Even a trace amount of that soul energy could still be enough to grow over time, for which could potentially super-envelope to the point of ultimate demonic influence and/or demonic possession. As for me, I wouldn’t want to take the risk.
By continuing to adore such materialistic possessions over GOD and by holding-on to such things, as an excuse to keep it just because of its glitter and shine, is simply (once more) hypocritical to say the very least.
To be simple and clear, to admire such stones and crystals is mere IDOLATRY! Once more, be REAL! And don’t be lukewarm! “So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I spit you out of my mouth.” ~Revelation 3:16

MY DISCLAIMER: This posting is not meant to portray any notion of judgement nor condemnation towards any-one-soul in particular, but rather possesses the sincere intention with humility to share my testimony from what I’ve discovered through GOD’S GRACE the Revelations blessed upon to me to Truth and Clarity which explains the foundations of what lies behind the very nature of this Earth Realm Reality (2 Corinthians 4:4). As once a former New Age influencer, myself, I have encountered the many ways in how vulnerable seekers of truth can be so easily led astray from the mark to salvation, indeed, from such Revelations to the path of that Truth. Thus, the main aim of this post lies upon, not only placing righteous judgement (John 7:24, ESV), but in also exposing the nefarious agenda of the demon and the fallen ones, from amidst its own hierarchy. And this is all done intentionally for the sake and sincerity of producing more encouraging and positively-influenced outcomes under the Guidance and Grace of the Holy Spirit, which can be derived and attributed to the actual act of human parasitic deliverance from the principalities of darkness. From this, such principalities hold no dominion nor authority over the POWER AND GLORY AND GRACE OF THE ALMIGHTY. Only our GOD OF THE MOST HIGH… holds that proper AUTHORITY. This is all done in obedience and in loyalty for the Glory of the ALMIGHTY (THE ONE TRUE GOD). In Yahushua’s Name ~Amen
