"If all the West part of the world is apostate, might it not be lawful, in our great need, to look farther...beyond Christendom? Ransom shook his head. "You do not understand," he said to Merlinus. "The poison was brewed in these West lands but it has spat itself everywhere by now...You might go East so far that the East became West and you returned to Britain....but even so you would not have come out anywhere into the light. The shadow of one dark wing is over all Tellus." (That Hideous Strength, CS Lewis)
Working within the darkness Satan's wing, the modern heirs of a rebellion against the Holy Triune God that began during the Renaissance are once more, but this time on a universal scale, seeking no less than their fusion (oneness) with the 'divine' energy field and its evolutionary progress into ever higher forms of life:
" Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine. This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity. Its full flowering be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age...." (Robert Muller (1923-2010), former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations, architect of World Core Curriculum, hailed as the U.N.s Prophet of Hope in "Shaping a Global Spirituality, p. 49)
The roots of evolution stretch back to Mesopotamia and the city of Babylon. In its modern version evolution describes the progress (transmigration) of a divine spark or energy as it inhabits in succession the bodies of different beings over the course of millions and billions of years. In the words of Emergent Church leader Rob Bell, evolution is an energy in the world, an electricity that everything is plugged into:
"The Greeks called it zoe, the mystics call it 'Spirit,' and Obi-Wan called it 'the Force'.....This energy, spark, and electricity that pulses through all of creation sustains it, fuels it, and keeps it growing. Growing, evolving, reproducing..." (Love Wins, pp. 144-145)
For initiates and adepts like Robert Muller, evolution magically transforms man into god:
"....the evolution of man into superman — was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries, and the real purpose of modern Masonry is not the social and charitable purposes to which so much attention is paid, but the expediting of the spiritual evolution of those who aspire to perfect their own nature and transform it into a more god-like quality. And this is a definite science, a royal art, which it is possible for each of us to put into practice..." (The Meaning of Masonry, W.L. Wilmhurst, p. 47)
Within the context of this royal occult science all being (god, man, universe) is at bottom one, or monistic, making it possible while under direction of demons for the mind of man to fuse with 'god.' Beneath the idea of man's fusion with the divine energy field is the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle (magic tradition) of the correlation of the divine energy field with the mind of man: “As above, so below”
Hermes Trismegistus is the father of the magic tradition. His world-famous magic formula demonstrates the consubstantiality (oneness) of Herme's divine mind with the energy field or one substance above. In teaching the meaning of the formula to his son Tat he said:
"The intellect, O Tat, is drawn from the very substance of God. In men, this intellect is God, and so some men are gods and their humanity is near to divinity...If man makes right use of (God's gifts), he differs in no way from the immortals." (God and the Knowledge of Reality, Thomas Molnar, p. 78)
Hermes' guru, a spirit director called Poimander, taught him that,
"Unless you make yourself equal to God, you cannot understand God, for the like is not intelligible save to the like." (ibid, p. 79)
From the time of Babylon, men have employed a variety of occult psycho-technologies and substances such as consciousness-altering drugs, hypnosis, yogic trance, transcendental meditation, ecstatic dance, drumming, and in our own age, heavy metal rock music (especially in combination with drugs), the Silva Method, deep-breathing exercises and electronic dance music in the quest to become “one” with the 'light' or energy field above:
“... I can be saved only by becoming one with the universe. Thereby, too, my deepest 'pantheist' aspirations It was especially the image of God which Teilhard saw in need of urgent redefinition. Modern man has not yet found the God he can adore, a God commensurate to the newly discovered dimensions of the universe” (Ursala King, "Towards a New Mysticism- Teilhard de Chardin and eastern religions" p.172)
Our increasingly Satanic age of subjectivism, spreading apostasy, spiritism, global pedophile rings, and other unspeakable evils is witnessing an explosive revival of this ancient occult phenomenon. A major reason is that psychology allegedly provides us with a 'scientific' explanation that ascribes whatever frightening entities encountered while on drugs or through techniques such as taught in the Silva Method to archetypal images from the collective unconscious, a theory attributed to the demonically influenced Carl Jung.
Jung's theory however, was preceded by William James (1842-1910) theory of “religious experience.” Referred to as the father of American psychology, James theorized that religious experience is a manifestation of the “subconscious,” the means by which man communicates with God “within.”
The theories of James are examples of unconscious Satanism as Rene Guenon (1886-1951), the French metaphysician of Perennial Philosophy explains in, “The Spiritist Fallacy,” a detailed expose of the Theosophy, Hinduism, Buddhism, Spiritism and evolutionary thinking overtaking the minds of Western modernist priests and intellectuals during Guenon’s lifetime.
Guenon--a man very knowledgable about the Ancient Mysteries, spiritism, and occult---describes sophisticated Western theologians and like-minded intellectuals as those who cannot speak of the devil,
“….without a smile of disdain, or an even more contemptuous shrug of the shoulders.” (p. 252)
Their contempt is due to the fact that scientifically enlightened modernists bought into the lie that Lucifer is not the devil but rather the “light-bearer.” They even go so far as to call him ‘the Great Creative Intelligence.’ Thus they invoke Lucifer and perform his cult, but in fact these people,
“…though in fact Satanists, are only unconsciously so, for they are mistaken as to the nature of the entity to whom they address their worship….It goes without saying that these ‘enlightened’ priests are all plainly modernists and that the spirit animating them is strangely similar to that affirmed in these lines.” (p. 254)
Guenon attributes ‘unconscious Satanism’ to every 'modernist' conception that disfigures the living God, and in this sense, all theories of an 'evolver' God posited by evolutionary theologians and of a God who evolves (i.e., Teilhard de Chardin) must be placed in the front rank:
“Modern philosophy has seen the birth of a new nation of God…It is God in evolution. God ‘is’ not. He ‘becomes.’ In the beginning was not the Lord, but in the beginning was ‘Movement.’ From this movement God is born by successive creations. As the world progresses, He progresses; as the world acquires perfection, He acquires perfection. (Moreover) man is a necessary step in the evolution of God. Just as man came from the beast, God will come from man…” (Great Catholic Books Newsletter; Volume II, Number 2, Fulton J. Sheen Issue)
Satanism, even when unconscious, is always characterized by a reversal of good and evil and the the Lord's order of creation and is therefore the opposite of orthodox Christian doctrine.
In this sense, evolutionary conceptions are Satanic because they persuade people to believe that everything in nature is the fruit of a gradual upward progression from either pre-existing or self-generated matter rather than the fallen but nevertheless good creation of the living God Who spoke.
Because infernal evolutionary conceptions reverse and upend the Genesis account ex nihilo, their sweeping acceptance means that it is now difficult if not impossible for Americans and Westerners to conceive of the Genesis account creation ex nihilo as traditional Christianity taught. This is because if 'God' has evolved from man who has evolved from beasts then perfection obviously lies somewhere in the future rather than in the past from which mankind fell. As well, if after a Big Bang a limited God used evolutionary energy over vast periods of time before the appearance of hominids then God is responsible for the suffering and death of millions of lifeforms preceding the hominids, making God the father of death and evil. In this demonically inverted 'theology' the 'way' to perfection proposed by the devil obviously lies with the occult science of Hermetic magic and psycho-technologies whereby mans salvation is achieved by becoming 'one' with the Divine Substance, Omega Point, Quantum Void, Brahman, or Singularity.
It is here that Guenon turns his attention to the theories of William James, which he classifies as unconscious Satanism for two reasons. First, James theory of 'religious experience' as a manifestation of the 'subconscious' by which man communicates with the Divine 'within' is only one step away from “condoning the practices of spiritism” (contact with spirits) with the further consequence of conferring on evil spirits an “eminently religious character.”
This has come to pass. As just one example out of hundreds is New Age theologian David Spangler speaking of Lucifer as a savior-spirit he correlates with Christ:
“The true light of this great being can only be recognized when one's own eyes can see with the light of the Christ, the light of the inner sun. Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into the New Age, which is the age of man's wholeness, each of us is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation, the particular doorway through which the individual must pass if he is to come fully into the presence of his light and his wholeness.”
“Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it, then he is free and we are free, that is the Luciferic Initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.” (David Spangler, Reflections on the Christ, Findhorn Lecture Series, 3rd ed., 1981; p. 45)
The second reason is that the idea that the subconscious puts man in contact with the divine 'light' within
puts God in an inferior state of being, making this is an 'infernal doctrine.' (pp. 258-262)
"And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. The one who has the Son has this eternal life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this eternal life." 1 John 5: 11-12
From the Renaissance to our own time, a stunning spiritual transformation of consciousness has been transferring Western and American thinking away from the Son of God and His offer of salvation and eternal life toward unconscious Satanism and eternity in hell via the anti-gospel of the new pagan/pantheist religion of evolution and science.
Under the new pagan religion, the animated god-force called evolution is the principle miracle-producing power of the cosmos and unconscious Satanists are evolution's conscious products who can now achieve ever-higher levels of consciousness by directing their own evolution by going 'within.'
Some unconscious Satanists now claim that a powerful mechanism is presently available to man from aliens who will solve mankind's problems and conduct people to a new 'cosmic' age. Aliens are busily transforming the consciousness of abductees and other Westerners and through them teaching evolution, monism, occult New Age philosophy, warning of a coming planetary apocalypse and denying the living Triune God, the supernatural dimension and Christian theism.
World-renowned UFOlogist and archaeologist Dr. Clifford Wilson is but one of many researchers who have pointed out how an alien calling itself "Ashtar" keeps popping up in UFO accounts. Along with Semjase (Samlazaz, Semjaza), who has been posing as a modern space-brother, Ashtar keeps appearing in UFO literature as well as ancient texts. John Keel, one of the world's most published and highly respected UFOlogists also noted this. Highlighting the element of deception he wrote:
"Thousands of mediums, psychics, and UFO contactees have been receiving mountains of messages from "Ashtar" in recent years.... Ashtar is not a new arrival. Variations of this name, such as Astaroth, Ashar, Asharoth, etc. appear in demonological literature throughout history, both in the Orient and Occident. Mr. Ashtar had been around a very long time, posing as assorted gods and demons and now, in the modern phase, as another glorious spaceman." (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 290)
In ancient Babylon, Astoreth (Inanna, Ashtar, Ishtar, Semiramis, Milcom, Cybele, Astarte, Isis, Demeter, Aphrodite; 1 Kings 11:5, 33; 2 Kings 23:13) was the androgynous consort of Anu, the supreme sky god.
According to Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthxchange, androgynous (transgender/bi-sexual) priests were associated with the worship of the goddess Istar from the Sumerian age (1800 BC). Their condition was due to their,
“...devotion to Istar who herself had ‘transformed their masculinity into femininity.'” (Androgyny: The Pagan Sexual Ideal, Dr. Jones, truthxchange)
All of this has led French physicist and UFO researcher Dr. Jacques Vallee to conclude that something is happening to human consciousness that is causing a major shift in man's belief systems and his relationship to the concept of the invisible. Vallee believes that the same "powerful force' that influenced the human race in the past is influencing it again:
".....human belief...is being controlled and conditioned, man's concepts are being rearranged, and we may be headed toward a massive change of human attitudes toward paranormal abilities and extraterrestrial life." (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 109)
In light of this, Vallee proposes the hypothesis that there is a control system,
"... for human consciousness...I am suggesting that what takes place through close encounters with UFOs is control of human beliefs, control of the relationship between our consciousness and physical reality, and that this control has been in force throughout history...." (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 158)
In occult terminology, this vast transformation of consciousness is egregore, a concept representing a 'thought form' or 'collective group mind,' resulting from a psychic entity influencing the thoughts of a group of people. As egregore derives from the Greek word for 'watchers,' the French occult magician Eliphas Levi (1810-1875) concluded that the fallen angel 'fathers' of the nephilim are the organizing powers controlling and dominating the 'collective group mind' (transformation of consciousness).
In Christian language, transformation of consciousness means demonic oppression and possession resulting from a 'demonic outpouring.' Vallee's "powerful force" is really a new demonic outpouring of the devil and his legions, even within apostatizing churches full of false converts, various occult rituals (yoga, 'new' contemplative prayer) and devices (enneagram), corrupted Bibles and the bread of this world rather than heavenly manna:
“There is a false ‘holy spirit’ called Kundalini that has invaded the churches. It is the same spirit that Hindus, yoga practitioners,and New Agers are familiar with (the ‘serpent power’). It is imparted by laying on of hands. It, along with other unholy mocking spirits, began entering the ‘churches’ with the ‘Toronto Blessing’. Another big doorway was Todd Bentley’s ‘Lakeland Revival’. People, hungry for a move of God, went long distances to take part in these events, and to receive the spirit. They then carried the spirit back to their home churches, and imparted it to others by laying on of hands…. If you believe you have received the Kundalini (or any other) spirit, then you need deliverance. But don’t let that frighten you away from seeking the baptism of the Holy Spirit.” (Holy Spirit Baptism, dontbefooled666.wordpress.com)
By way of the temptation of pride Satan has cast mankind into the deepest void of idolatry and provoked a great falling away from faith in Jesus Christ. By turning proud men to the worship of science and evolution and crafting a false Christ consciousness from evolutionary energy together with a false church, the beast is quickly taking possession of the church without many people noticing it.
“...the Word of God is clear that the last days would be marked by an unprecedented demonic outpouring. I believe we are at least in the edges of that outpouring even now – from international calls for demonic deliverance ministries to open displays of demonic and satanic rituals.” (U.S Alarm: ‘Unprecedented Demonic Outpouring,’ Carl Gallups, WND, 8?16/2016)
"...the Hideous Strength confronts us and it is as in the days when Nimrod built a tower to reach heaven." (That Hideous Strength, CS Lewis, p. 285)
That Hideous Strength confronts us and the faithful must persevere and hold tight to the Cross of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:
“And He said to me, 'It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son." Revelation 21:4
