The Worldview of Satan

The idea that man can become God was first whispered in Eve’s ear by Satan, the father of the occult worldview.  In the devil's worldview,  the cosmos is a divine energy field, the one substance that of old has been known as Brahman, the Void, Abyss, Divine Mens, or Centrifugal Energy, for example.    In condensed form it began when the Devil lied to mankind's first parents, saying "You will surely not die," "Your eyes will be opened," and "You will be like God," "knowing good and evil." (Gen. 3:4,5)

The serpent’s lie is quite simply the belief that man is God since the substance of God is dispersed throughout the universe allowing man to share God’s substance in the form of a divine spark.  Thus death is not real (reincarnation) and sin and depravity are illusions since inner divinity is at man’s core.  Therefore, man can sin and sin divinely.

Respectively, these lies suggest that man will live forever even if he rebels against the commands of the Triune God and that  by his own innate powers he can discover secret enlightenment revelatory of both his true identity as God and the knowledge of the universe of divine energy.. With this knowledge; he can,  by way of self-will, magic, and help from spirits, connect the divine spark in his mind with the divine energy and become godlike, thereby gaining forbidden psychic powers.  And finally, a condition of self-control and moral purity is counterproductive since only personal experiences and final transcendence of good and evil will make him like God. 

From the pre-flood world to the post-flood world of Ham and Nimrod on through to our own time, the basic foundations of the occult worldview consistently teach the following elements:

1. Monism and evolution:  Though there are different forms of monism the common denominator of them all is the idea that the universe and everything in it consists of or is reducible to one substance in process of evolution.  In direct contrast to the Biblical teaching that though men are made in the spiritual image of God but do not partake of God's being (Gen. 1:27), with Darwinism for instance, God, mind, and spirit are reducible to one substance: matter in the form of the neural complexity of the brain, meaning that divine consciousness (God reduced to psychic energy) operates within the neural complexity of man's brain.  So God is within the brain of man:

Since the unconscious is God all along, we may further define the goal of spiritual growth to be the attainment of godhood by the conscious self.” (A Different Drum, M. Scott Peck) 

Mystical forms of monism characteristically accept some form of pantheism, exemplified by for example, Teilhard de Chardin's Advaita Hindu pantheist New Religion and Leonard Sweet's Quantum Spirituality based in Teilhard's conceptions.  Advaita (monistic) Hinduism teaches the one ultimate reality of which everything consists is Nirguna Brahman (an impersonal god-force or Void) while Teilhard's system reduces everything to Omega---his version of Brahman.

It is the monistic premise of both Darwinism and mystical occult monism that makes them fundamentally anti-Christian.  In Dr. Gary North's excellent evaluation of monism, "Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism," North writes that,

 "...there is a permanent, unbridgeable gap between the ultimate being of God and the derivative being of creatures.  There is a Creator-creature distinction (meaning that) men do not partake of God's being...they are not of the same substance as God.  There is no more fundamental doctrine than this one.  Significantly, in every form of occultism this principle is denied....Satan's old temptation to man hinges on his denial and man's denial of the Creator-creature distinction..."  (pp. 59-61)

2. God is ultimately impersonaland one with nature as opposed to God as wholly 'other' (supernatural), personal and loving (John 3:16)

3. Man's true identity is God since he is one with (shares) God's being as opposed to man created in God's spiritual image though not sharing the being of God. (Gen. 1:27)

4. Since there is only one substance, then evil is in harmony with the amoral god-substance or force.  In contrast, Scripture teaches that evil operates in opposition to God's holy nature (1 Peter 1:14, 15; 3:12)

5. Gnostic illumination or enlightenment (salvation) is achieved through self-realization (awareness of personal divinity) through various occult spiritist practices, i.e., séances, spells, automatic writing, meditation, hypnosis, Ouija boards, shamanic drumming, Kundalini yoga, visualization, mind-altering drugs, transformational festivals, trance music and centering.  

Occult salvation is the antithesis of salvation based on the atonement (Christ's suffering and death for sin) and received as a free gift by grace through faith in God and Christ (John 3:16; 5:24; 6:47; 17:3)

6. Psychic or spiritual powers resulting from initiation into occult spiritist practices (see above) that open the mind, or third eye according to occult lore, to contact with and even possession by aggressively hostile spirits and are often used for personal power.   In contrast, Scripture teaches that spiritual gifts are distinct from and work in opposition to occult psychic powers.  They are given by God to His people for service to others ( 1 Cor. 12:4-11; 14:3)

7. Eternal cyclic incarnation into different bodies over thousands or millions of years or reabsorption (annihilation and/or personal extinction) into the impersonal substance.   In opposition, Scripture teaches personal immortality in either eternal heaven or hell (Matthew 25:46)

In monism, whether Darwinian or mystical occult versions, the traditional Western Judeo-Christian ways of thinking and perceiving are rejected because "all is one,"  This means there is no ultimate distinction between Jesus Christ and Satan, male and female, true and false, good and evil, moral and immoral, bent and straight, holy and unholy, or right and wrong because "true reality" (the one substance) is beyond the illusory categories associated with the natural (physical) world. This means that abortion, infanticide, murder, genocide, rape, lesbianism, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, lying, cheating and theft cannot be considered evil if evil itself is in harmony with the divine one substance.

While nothing can really be considered evil, nor can anything really be considered good.  So love, honesty, integrity, courage, fidelity, and commitment cannot be considered good and worthy for the same reason evil cannot be considered evil.

Finally, there is no such thing as personhood (genuine personality)  because true reality (the one substance) is not personal.  In other words, because the One God in three Persons who made all men in His spiritual image, thereby endowing all men with genuine personality (personhood) is an illusion, then so are ideas of personhood and unalienable rights from the living, personal God.  In fact, since personality is supposedly a hindrance to occult spiritual enlightenment, it must be destroyed. 

The occult worldview of Satan has been with us from the pre-flood days of Noah.  Today its' most highly developed forms are Wicca and Advaita Hinduism and derivatives such as the occult New Age spirituality overspreading the West and America and penetrating into the whole body of the Christian church.

A Channeled Reading from the "Archduke of Rome"

A friend of mine, a pastor, handed me a peculiar letter he had received and asked that I explain it's meaning.  In large, black, ornate-type block print the heading announces :  "Gifts of the Lord Presents to North America---The Archduke of Rome."  The text of the letter is a "reading."  
 
Upon investigation, Gifts of the Lord is revealed to be an occult spiritual outreach operation run by Rebecca Hardcastle Wright, PhD.   Rebecca is a shaman, who in her letter explains that she crosses,  "over to the spirit world and speaks with spirit guardians and guides."  It may well be that the so-called Archduke of Rome is her spirit guide, making the "reading" knowledge channeled through Rebecca by the 'Archduke.'  

Either Rebecca is a fake or she is not.  If it is the latter, and upon investigation it appears that she is not a fake, then Rebecca is heavily demonized.
 
In addition to Gifts of the Lord, Rebecca operates the occult Institute for Exoconsciousness which she founded.   The Institute is frequented by Hollywood and West coast types. 

According to her website's "about" section, her mission is to research and apply the 'psychic' abilities of human consciousness sourced in extraterrestrial experience. She created the concept of Exoconsciousness to explain the extraterrestrial origins, dimensions and abilities of human consciousness.  All of this means that Extraterrestrials are "god" or "lord" in the sense that Brahman or the Quantum Void is "god" and since "god" is within the brain of man then certain spiritually elite men and women such as Rebecca, are "gods" too, which is why according to Wright, Exoconsciousness is confirmation of humanity’s psychic connection with the Extraterrestrial Presence (Rebecca's concept of god and/or lord).  
 
Rebecca belongs to a growing internationally connected group of Gnostic occult pagan spiritual elites who possess secret knowledge received from spirit guides, Masters, extraterrestrials and assorted demons.  The members of this spiritual elite go by many names: seers, ascended masters, prophets, prophetesses, super apostles, pneumatics, perfecti, shamans, illuminati, god-men, mystics, magi and adepts.   Rebecca describes herself as prophetess and shaman.
 
Over the past three hundred years, the Western Christian tradition has slowly but steadily been eclipsed, first by Gnostic pagan "scientific Darwinian materialism," now by Eastern-oriented occult scientific evolutionary pantheism which has infused and spiritualized the former, transforming it into an agency for the transmission of ancient pagan worldview concepts such as the naturalistic structure of the evolving universe of matter and psychic energy and other secret revelations from fallen angels and evil spirits. This legion of disembodied beings (fallen angels) call themselves everything from Transcended Masters to Maitreya, Semjase, Astar, the Council of Nine, Space Brothers and ancient Ennead of Egypt together with evil spirits going by such names as god, christ and jesus. All of this has led Martin Lloyd-Jones to declare:

"The modern world, and especially the history of the present century, can only be understood in terms of the unusual activity of the devil and the "principalities and powers" of darkness...In a world of collapsing institutions, moral chaos, and increasing violence, never was it more important to trace the hand of the "prince of the power of the air." If we cannot discern the chief cause of our ills, how can we hope to cure them?" The Christian Warfare

In the space of a few short decades occult New Age spirituality has made profound inroads. Its upsurge manifests itself in the form of everything from obsession with the paranormal, channeling cults, ghost-hunting, necromancy, light-bearers, spirit guides, goddess worship, shamanism, transcendental meditation and visualization, 'new' contemplative or centering prayer, the enneagram, labyrinth walking, yoga, Wicca, revitalized Norse paganism, transformational festivals, vampires, Ouija boards, poltergeists, the proliferation of 'new' religions and Lucifer as the Angel of Light:

"Medium and psychic Sylvia Browne admits there are dark entities that choose from the beginning to be this way, but she denies the devil. According to Browne, God sent Lucifer down to watch over people when God saw they had chosen "the dark side." According to Browne, "Lucifer is neither dark nor fallen. He wasn't rejected by God or banished from the light." (The Dark Side: Beyond Good and Evil, Marcia Montenegro, Christian Answers for the New Age)

 Exoconsciousness is a part of this sweeping occult pagan social, religious, political, cultural movement that joins with consciousness scientists, energy healers, spiritual practitioners, paranormal researchers, channelers, Hindu god-men, yogis, and near death experiencers to spiritually transform Americans and eventually the world.
 
In pursuit of this agenda, Exoconsciousness normalizes psychic abilities, telepathy and ET contact as essential for the spiritually transformed 21st century human. According to Rebecca, Exoconscious humans possess psychic abilities, experience out-of-body inter-dimensional travel and identify themselves as cosmic beings. 
 
In this emerging field of Exoconsciousness, Rebecca collaborates with consciousness scientists associated with Quantrek and the Institute of Noetic Sciences.  Moreover, her research has broad implications for occult Gnostic pagan brain-based neuroscience, technology-based transhumanism, and quantum-based cosmic consciousness

Currently she teaches Exoconsciousness on the faculty of International Metaphysical University (IMU) which specializes in shamanism, energy healing, Ufology, and psychic studies. She also created and taught one of the first courses on Ufology in the U.S. at Scottsdale Community College, in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Furthermore, Rebecca is a frequent guest on radio talk shows, appears in films and is a featured keynote speaker.
 
Rebecca has extensive experience working with UFO and extraterrestrial contactees as a coach and hypnotherapist. This work inspired her to create the concept of Exoconsciousness. She trained with Ruth Hover, PhD, a pioneer ufologist who participated in Dr. John Mack’s professional organization PEER (Program for Extraordinary Experience Research).
 
Her graduate degrees include an MDiv in Philosophical Theology from Boston University School of Theology and a PhD in Parapsychic Science from American Institute of Holistic Theology. Her bachelor degree is in Philosophy and Religion from Otterbein University. Rebecca also studied Continental Philosophy at the Institute for European Studies in Basel, Switzerland.  Her hypnotherapy and life coach certifications are from Southwestern Institute of Healing Arts in Tempe, Arizona.

Rebecca--a shaman--- is an ordained minister in the United Methodist Church and served as an inter-faith university chaplain at Wright State University in Ohio. 

 Shamanism is an occult pagan wisdom tradition (Romans 1:25) originating in ancient Chaldea (Babylon). Shamanism is associated with many diverse beliefs often based on monism (all is one; there is a life force uniting all creation) & pantheism (all is God, Quantum Void, World Soul, Brahman or Extraterrestrial Presence; the life force is God, Quantum Void, World Soul, Brahman or Extraterrestrial Presence).
 
According to the apologetics website, Christian Answers for the New Age, the occult normally involves the following:
 
1. Techniques to manipulate reality or to gain secret information: Sorcery/magick; calling on spirits for power; special rituals, spells or techniques to manipulate forces to bring about a desired result. There is no such thing as white magick, a term for magic used with good intentions. Although occultists make a distinction between black & white magick, God does not, as He clearly condemns all sorcery/magick.
 
2. Attempts to contact spirit beings (spiritism) such as angels, demons, departed souls, or those believed to be in other planes or dimensions. This is done using the Ouija Board, channeling, meditation, visualization, drugs or automatic writing. Some words in the Old Testament describing occult practices translate as "having a familiar spirit."
 
3. Drugs (especially hallucinogens such as LSD and mescaline) are often used to reach an altered state or hypnotic trance, a state desirable by occultists for visions, enhanced abilities, & spirit contact. Some words for sorcery in the Bible come from words for the use of drugs and potions.
 
4. Occult practices are strongly condemned by God; such practices lead away from God toward deception, danger and even destruction. Deuteronomy 18: 10-12:
 
"There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you."

Today millions of Westerners are risking everything to seek the occult world and its' alluring power. In "One or Two?" Dr. Peter Jones, Director of truthXchange and Adjunct Professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary California writes that a wide variety of occult spirituality is now available. There is something for everyone:

"A Course in Miracles, Alchemy, American Indian Quest, Ancient Mythology, Arkashic Record, Aryuvedic Medicine, Astrology, Bahai'i Unity, Buddhism, Buddhist/Christian Dialogue, Chakras, Channeling, Christian Monastic Mysticism, Crystals, Divination, Dream work, Druidism, Eastern Meditation, Eckankar (soul travel), Ecofeminism, Enneagram, EST, Feng Shui, Gnosticism (ancient and modern), Goddess worship, Hare Krishna, Hermeticism, Higher Self, Hinduism, Holism, Human Potential Movement, Hypnosis, I Ching, Iridology, Jungian Transpersonal Psychology, Kabbalah, Karma, Mandalas, Mantras, Mind-altering drugs, Parapsychology, Past Life Regressions, Reiki, Re-incarnation, Religious syncretism, Rolfing, Sacred Technologies, Santeria, Scientology, Shamanism, Sufism, T'ai Chi, Tantrism, Tarot Cards, Teilhardism, Therapeutic Touch, Tikkun, Transcendental Meditation, Ufology, Urantia Book, Visualization, Wicca, Yoga, Zen." (pp. 40-41)

In Jones recently published book "The Other Worldview," endorsed by RC Sproul and promoted by Ligonier, Dr. Jones observes that the millennial generation is the first to be immersed from birth within a coherently anti-biblical, occult pagan system:
 
"In many areas of the United States and in its educational institutions, this generation has been given a worldview based on the presuppositions of paganism and an outright rejection of God, the personal Creator.  For many young people (occult pagan) voices have drowned out serious consideration of the Christian worldview, which is now vilified---as the source of all kinds of evil.  Thus, traditional Western culture is under siege, and the immediate casualties are the millennials, who have unwittingly been seduced by aging progressives."  (p. xvii)
 
How can we speak to a generation steeped in old occult paganism dressed in new clothes?  Dr. Jones answer (and mine) is by a robust God-honoring cosmology and by a thorough unpacking of the meaning and essence of the pagan "lie" in order that we may then show the full extent of the Way, Truth, and Life---the only way forward.  Jones comments:
 
"We Christians need a deep understanding of both the gospel and the pagan system around us---the system into which the gospel speaks and which it unequivocally judges so that it may fully redeem."

The Devil and the Genesis Problem

One of the devil's greatest achievements in our age of biological science and evolutionary thinking has been to convince natural science-and-evolution worshipping Westerners to believe that all that exists is the evolving universe of matter and energy (naturalism).   The only problem, and it’s a really big one because unresolvable, is that though evolutionists have tried several different anti-creation models of the universe none can account for life, conscious life, and information.  Additionally, recent research has shot them full of holes, leaving evolutionists with the hated Big Bang model.

In a 2012 editorial, "The Genesis Problem," New Scientist editors admit that physicists have been fighting a rearguard action against the Big Bang theory for decades, largely because they believe it has theological overtones. After all, if you have an instant of creation, don't you need a creator?

If modern physicists understood the pagan and occult implications of the Big Bang model their fears would be put to rest. The seedbed of Big Bang speculations are ancient global cosmic events described by Eastern Advaitans and Greek nature sages as Cosmic Eggs. One Hindu belief was that Brahman (the Void or energy field) spontaneously generated itself as something like a seed or singularity about 4.3 billion years ago and then evolved under its’ own power by which it expanded and formed all that exists: 

These Hindus believed in an eternal Universe that had cycles of rebirth, destruction and dormancy, known as ‘kalpas’, rather like oscillating big bang theories. We also read in the Hindu Bhagavad Gita that the god Krishna says, ‘I am the source from which all creatures evolve.” (Evolution: An Ancient Pagan Idea, Paul James Griffith, creation.com)

In this way of thinking, the entire universe, spirit, life, the gods, human beings, and everything else, came about by a process of emanation (or unfolding, emergence or evolution) from an energy field called Brahman. Just as waves form across the surface of the ocean, so the Void forms upon itself successive waves (emanations) of particles (particle theory) that in turn emanate further entities and so on, with all of these entities interacting within an extraordinary network or great chain of being consisting of downward-descending self-contained planes of existence, a top-down hierarchy of astral plane realities (multiverse theory) arranged vertically. Each higher plane of existence emanates the one below it through a mechanical process, thus each plane stands in the position of god-force to the one below. Therefore creation is not creation ex nihilo, as the Genesis account teaches, but mechanical emanation out of the Void.

In India, the Void and the doctrine of evolution/reincarnation/karma was thoroughly established from ancient times. It was expounded first in the Upanishads (c. 1000 BC - AD 4), the philosophical-mystical texts held to be the essence of the Vedas.  Moreover, the "science" and "psychology" behind the idea that mind and information evolve from chemicals can be found in the yogic science of Ayurveda and Hatha Yoga which outlines in both modern and ancient texts the glandular and neurological basis of Enlightenment. (ibid, Griffith)

Variations on the theme of the evolving universe of matter and energy were held by ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans in the West and the Upanishads and other mystical pantheists in the East.  This ancient occult pagan belief is naturalism, which is of the worldview of monism.  Monism is held in common by pantheism, materialism and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-biblical thought systems   

Naturalism means on one hand that the supernatural Tri-personal Holy God who spoke creation into existence ex nihilo,  man as His spiritual image-bearer, the Fall, hell, and the devil and his evil minions either do not exist or are myths from man’s pre-scientific past.   On the other hand, highly evolved deep space beings---themselves the emergent product of the universal life force (aka the Force, Zoë, evolution, vril, serpent power, seething energies of Lucifer) acting on matter almost certainly exist according to prominent scientist Stephen Hawking and many others.

Hawking warns against contact with deep space aliens because he believes that since they would be a very highly evolved life-form they would view human kind as a primitive life-form to be conquered and used as slaves or worse. 

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker also believes in the existence of aliens.  The author of "The Color Purple" is a disciple of David Icke, thus like him she believes the world is run by shape-shifting reptilian aliens who practice mind control from the moon.   In his book, 'Human Race Get off Your Knees: The Lion Sleeps No More' Icke describes how the human mind is controlled from the moon which he claims is actually a “gigantic spacecraft” which sends us a

fake reality broadcast... in much the same way as portrayed in the Matrix movie trilogy."  ("Prize-winning author Alice Walker gives support to David Icke on Desert Island Discs," Liam O'Brien, independent.uk, Sunday 19 May 2013)

Depending on which camp extraterrestrial believers fall into, they either view aliens with great fear and horror or as the saviors of mankind who will rescue the earth in the process.   The Vatican's astronomer Dr. Guy Consolmagno, an avowed evolutionist and self-confessed science fiction fan said he would even be happy to baptize an alien.   (I’d love to baptize ET, says Vatican’s stargazer, dailymail.co.uk, 25 January, 2011)

Other Christian UFO believers have rapture-type events predicted for the future while many others are tormented by waking-visions and nightmares by what one man describes as demons,

"(and) the feeling of paralysis and being incapable of  speaking. All I could do in such a situation was mentally pray in Jesus name for deliverance. I would then feel the ‘presence’ leave and I’d wake up." ("Aliens, evolution and the occult," Gary Bates, creation.com, 24 February 2007)

Bates notes that he has heard many such testimonies and today increasing numbers of people are having very similar experiences with demons and evil spirits masquerading as aliens.

The Myth of Extraterrestrials

In his book, "Scientific Mythologies," James A. Herrick traces the highly evolved 'aliens from outer-space' idea back to certain Renaissance astrologers, occult Hermetic-Cabbalists, and mystics such as Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) who claimed to not only receive telepathic secrets from spirits but to have visited populated planets during self-hypnosis induced mystical experiences.

Swedenborg's mystical experiences and visits to planets bear a striking similarity to those of ex-guru Rabindranath R. Maharaj. Now a committed follower of Jesus Christ, Maharaj describes his mystical encounters with gods on other planets:

"Nothing was more important than our daily transcendental meditation, the heart of Yoga, which Krishna advocated as the surest way to eternal Bliss. But it could also be dangerous. Frightening psychic experiences awaited the...meditator, similar to a bad trip on drugs. Demons described in the Vedas had been known to take possession of some Yogis. Kundalini power, said to be coiled like a serpent at the base of the spine, could produce ecstatic experiences when released in deep meditation — or...it could do great mental and bodily harm. The line between ecstasy and horror was very fine...During daily meditation I began to have visions of psychedelic colors, to hear unearthly music, and to visit exotic planets where the gods conversed with me, encouraging me to attain even higher states of consciousness. Sometimes in my trance I encountered the same horrible demonic creatures...depicted by the images in Hindu, Buddhist, Shinto, and other religious temples. It was a frightful experience, but the Brahmacharya explained that it was normal and urged me to pursue the quest for Self Realization. At times I experienced a sense of mystical unity with the universe. I was the universe, Lord of all, omnipotent, omnipresent. My instructors were excited at this. I was obviously a chosen vessel, destined for early success in the search for union with Brahman. The Forces that had guided my father were now guiding me." (Death of a Guru, Rabindranath R. Maharaj, pp. 56-57)

Swedenborg's influence is far-reaching. His disciples run the gamut from Kant to the occult theosophist Madame Blavatsky and psychologist J.B. Rhine together with a vast array of science fiction writers (i.e., Arthur C. Clarke, H.G. Wells, Ray Bradbury, and Steven Spielberg), contemporary spiritists and numerous evolutionary scientists.

Over time, Swedenborg's astral plane travels gave birth to what Herrick dubs "The Myth of the Extraterrestrial." As far back as the seventeenth century enthusiastic science fiction writers were imagining "the intelligent extraterrestrial visitor" and preparing the public to accept their existence. And accept them they have, for the twentieth century has witnessed a veritable population explosion in the alien domain, said Herrick. (p. 43)

Indeed, many UFO messages have been received and channeled by contactees (mediums) who claim to be receiving special revelations from our ‘space brothers.’   Some of these 'revelations' have even become the basis of block-buster movies featuring reptilian, grey, and humanoid Nordic extraterrestrials.

Tragically, because science fiction has become our national myth and evolution (the universal life force) is widely accepted throughout the West and taught in Western schools and many seminary's as science, secularized high-school children actually believe there must be some kind of evolutionary Star Wars-like ‘force’  behind the universe.   Along with many deluded atheist scientists, Hollywood liberals, and like-minded progressives, some students even believe that highly evolved and technologically advanced aliens seeded life on earth.  

Panspermia is the idea that life on earth was accidentally seeded by meteorites containing the essential building blocks of life or perhaps by highly evolved extraterrestrials who for billions of years have been guiding the evolution of man. The extraterrestrial idea was favored by Arthur C. Clarke in his book, "Childhood's End" and a variation on this theme has been advanced by SETI researcher Paul Davies, Francis Crick (co-discoverer of the DNA molecule) and Ralph Pudritz of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.

Davies has written seriously about the possibility of "alien bioengineering" that could be detected in the DNA of life on earth and suggests that citizen scientists and school students be enlisted to help search for evidence. (An Alien Code Close to Home: Seeking ET Beyond the Radio Silence, Astrobiology Magazine, Jeremy Hsu, 10/27/2011)

Pudritz theorizes that humans and aliens may share the same DNA which itself could be part of a universal structure

"of the first genetic codes anywhere...." (Why Aliens Might Look like You, Eddie Wren, dailymail.co.uk/ June 11, 2012)

Crick proposes a theory called "directed panspermia," the idea that,

"...life on earth may have begun when aliens from another planet sent a rocket ship containing spores to seed the earth."

Like all other dead-end evolutionary cosmologies, Crick’s theory only pushes the unresolvable problem of the origin of life out into deep space:

"This scenario still leaves open the question of who designed the designer [aliens] — how did life originally originate?" (Crick, Life Itself: Its Origin and Nature, 1981) 

In a big picture sense, the whole realm of UFO beliefs is a religious idea built upon evolution, yet another religious idea said Bates:

The common denominator of both camps is the belief that evolution has occurred for countless eons on the earth and all over the universe. This point cannot be  emphasized strongly enough—it is the basis for virtually all belief in alien life, whatever form one thinks that life may take.”  (ibid, Aliens, evolution and the occult)

Extraterrestrials: Lucifer’s Elite Troops

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987) is a highly respected German theologian who pastored, counseled and delivered people suffering from the occult and demonic bondage throughout the world, covering sixty-five countries and five continents.  In “Occult ABC,” Koch identifies extraterrestrials as Lucifer’s elite troops.  Even though UFO’s were seen in previous centuries, today’s UFO’s are heralds of the end-time. They appear most frequently in countries where the cult of Satan flourishes and their most obvious purpose is to destroy faith in Christ and the Bible and replace it with hell-born wisdom.   Lucifer is sending his elite troops ahead:

He is arming for the final battle.”  (pp. 341-342)

  "....blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it." Luke 11:28

In "Wisdom and Foolishness," Dr. Harry Reeder, senior minister of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Ala. writes that God's Word reveals two types of wisdom.  The first is worldly wisdom which is "earthly, unspiritual, demonic."  This hell-derived wisdom leaves in its wake chaos, brokenness, factions, death, and destruction.  The second is wisdom from above, granted by the Triune God to those who ask for it:

"It is found in His word, and it is accessed by hearing that Word faithfully preached and then embedding it into our lives through obedience."  (Biblical Dichotomies, Tabletalk, p. 19)

The first wisdom is not of God but of the creative imagination of man run wild.  It is,

"… actually 'the foolishness of man' masquerading as wisdom and propagated by man-made religions and a myriad of 'isms'---humanism, progressivism, materialism, consumerism, secularism, etc." 

Of all the foolishness of man masquerading as wisdom today, there is no more destructive and demonic than evolutionism.  Evolutionism is hell-derived metaphysical sophistry pretending to be factual science which for millions of deluded seculars and their evolutionary theist counterparts has effectively become a new religion that supplants the Revealed Word of God:

"...the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."  2 Cor. 4:4

Over eighteen hundred years ago the Apostle Paul foretold all of this,

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.”  (I Timothy 4:1)

Rise of the Global Church of Lucifer

"And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."  John 3:19

Since the Renaissance, powerfully influential, satanically overshadowed occult secret societies existing at the highest levels of the Christian Church, government and society have been both the intelligentsia and the real powers behind what has been variously called the Progressive Underground, the Anti-Establishment, the sixties Sexual Liberation movement and the Anti-Tradition Counter Culture.  The aim of the societies is twofold:  first, the total destruction of the Old Order based on faithful Christianity with emphasis on the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, Original Sin, Jesus Christ God Incarnate, immutable truth, moral absolutes and all tradition arising therefrom, and second, the ushering in of an occult New Age--- a socialistic kingdom of “God” (pantheist New World Order) here on earth.   (The Occult Underground: The Dawn of the New Age" and "The Occult Establishment," James Webb)

Today occult societies at the highest levels of global power and influence operate through a vast organizational network--a global occult pantheist New Age Movement (Age of Aquarius) linked to over 10,000 organizations here in America alone. 

The New Age movement received its start in 1875 with the founding of the Theosophical Society by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.  In his book, “Earth’s Earliest Ages” (1876), the English theologian G.H. Pember writes that Blavatsky was chosen by the Brotherhood (fallen angels) to carry out a mission.  They initiated and instructed her for seven years and then dismissed her to the outer world.  As instructed, she traveled to America and organized the Theosophical Society in New York with two specific stated goals.   First: the formation of the nucleus of a Universal Brotherhood.   Second: the destruction of the Revealed Word of God by way of a transformation to unity-with-the-world-system process.  This devilish process would be carried out by “spiritually illumined” change-agent theologians, priests (2 John 1:7) and intellectuals who would transform it completely:

"The coming struggle will emerge within the churches themselves; it will be precipitated by the enlightened elements...the fight will then spread to thinking men and women everywhere who — in a protesting revolt — have denied orthodox churchianity and theology." (Spirit Master Djwhal Khul speaking through Alice Bailey, Externalization of the Hierarchy, pp. 453-454)

Bailey explains that specially selected theologians and priests will be overshadowed and then possessed by Masters in a process of initiation:

 ". . . prepared disciples and highly evolved men and women, will be found who will be doing the work along the lines intended, one who will be occupying places of prominence which will make them available for the reaching of the many...First 'An impression upon the physical brain of the man or women, of thoughts, plans for work, ideals . . . which emanating from the Avatar [Hindu: An incarnation of a deity in physical form] will yet be unrecognized by him (This is a very important aspect of overshadowing) . . . . This is literally a form of higher telepathy . . . . Second. The overshadowing of the chela (Hindu for disciple) during his work (such as lecturing, writing, or teaching) and his illumination for service. He will be conscious of this . . . and will seek more and more to be available for use, rendering himself up in utter selflessness to the inspiration of His Lord. Third. The conscious co-operation of the chela is necessitated in the third method of overshadowing. In this case, he will… surrender himself and step out of his physical body, handing it over for the use of the Great Lord or one of His Masters . . . he renders up his body, and stands aside for a specific length of time." (Scientific Analysis of the Writings of Alice A. Bailey and their Applications,” Robert Herrmann Ph.D., pp. 756-757)

In other words, 'chosen' disciples will at first come under the influence of demons, then become infested, then severely infested, and for some, completely possessed.

Eighteen years after Blavatsky died in London in 1891, the Brotherhood selected Alice Bailey (1880-1949) for further instruction.   Beginning in the year 1919 she began receiving “messages” from “Tibetan Master” Djwhal Khul. As stated by Bailey, the preparatory period began with Blavatsky and lasted from 1875 to 1890.   The intermediate teachings were received and recorded by Bailey from 1919 to 1949.  According to Khul, other teachings would emerge on a continuous basis after 1975 and be given on a world wide scale to selected individuals.

Among core teachings common to occult New Age are adulation of Lucifer (the seething power and/or angel of evolution), biological and spiritual evolution, reincarnation, karma, pantheism,  man is god, nature is goddess, and the earthly kingdom of “God” together with the concept of the Masters and other such synonyms: Masters of Wisdom, the Unknown Chiefs, the Secret Chiefs, Brothers, Council of Nine, the Ancient Ennead of Egypt, and Space Brothers.   In her various books Bailey lists other members of the Hierarchy of Masters: Master Jupiter, Master Koot Humi, Master Rakoczi, Master Serapis, Master P., Master Hilarion (the Master of science), and Master Jesus.

Variations of these concepts and teachings are also common to Christian Science, Mormonism, Spiritism, Baha’i, Unitarian Universalism, Scientology, Eastern Religions, the Emergent Church, the New Apostolic Reformation and Masonry (Illuminism), the successor of the Mysteries:

"Illuminism---the Luciferian religion---teaches that man can become God, that he can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself (and) once you have evolved into a god, you can make up your own rules (and) morality." (“New World Order,” William T. Still, p. 27)

"Spiritual evolution is a common belief within Fabian socialism, the Emergent Church, the communitarian church growth movement, and the New Age movement. It will play a major role in bringing many of the world’s religions together as one." (Man as God: What Much of Evangelicalism  and the World's Religions have in Common, Brannon Howse, worldview weekend, July 29, 2013)

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is one of the fastest growing movements within Protestantism today.  It emerged from the Pentecostal and Charismatic movement and teaches that certain individuals have become new spiritual beings, super apostles:

 "This NAR teaching is consistent with the New Age Movement or cosmic humanism, declaring that man needs to tap into his “Christ consciousness.” Cosmic humanism, (also known as the New Age Movement or pagan spirituality) is a major foundation of the NAR." (ibid, Howse)

In his penetrating analysis of the New Apostolic Reformation, Fr. Seraphim Rose notes that the spiritist manifestations (i.e., impartation, holy laughter, drunk in the spirit, roaring, barking, hissing, slain in the spirit) experienced in NAR churches are found in the occult New Age movement. The spirit that invaded the Charismatic movement during the 'Toronto Blessing' is not the Holy Spirit, said Rose, but the kundalini spirit (serpent power), the same unholy spirit that ancient Egyptians, Hindus, yoga practitioners, and New Agers are familiar with.

One way that serpent power is imparted is by laying on of hands, or Shakti-pat. The demon-possessed Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajineesh was called the "divine drunkard" by his disciples, and according to Tal Brook, author of "Riders of the Cosmic Circuit," by his millions of worshippers in India, America, and Europe and throughout the world. Rajineesh encouraged his devotees to come and drink from him, meaning, receive his touch:

"His spiritual 'wine' was often passed on with a single touch to the head (Shakti-pat), at which his followers would collapse in ecstatic laughter. Another famous guru, Swami Muktananda, would hold meetings at which thousands of his followers from around the world came to receive his touch. They experienced uncontrollable laughing, roaring, barking, hissing, crying, shaking, as well as falling unconscious." (Rose, p. 217)

According to veteran researcher Brooks Alexander, Lucifer's initiates and disciples have successfully assimilated occult Eastern teachings and techniques into our church and our culture. With remarkable speed and ease, Eastern and occult ideas and spiritist techniques for contacting spirits such as trance music, brain-altering drugs, meditation and yoga are being propagated to undiscerning Westerners and Americans, within and without the church, on a mass scale:

"...they are filtered through the pervasive secularism of our culture. In this way they are demystified without changing their essential content. The basic components of an Eastern/occult world view are recast in forms of expression that are naturalistic, scientific, and humanistic...Occult philosophy is being secularized and psychologized with increasing refinement....Their underlying themes run through contemporary science, economics, politics, art, psychology, and religion." (The Coming Darkness, p. 55)

NAR's Super Apostles (2 Cor. 11:13) channel this unholy ‘spirit’ who they claim is the Spirit of ‘God.’   They claim that ‘God’ has given them the authority to build a kingdom of “God” on earth---a unified and/or pluralistic Global Church:

They believe they are restored apostles called and ordained by God to be the government for the emerging “New Order” church.  In order to maintain this governance they stress strict obedience and submission to them in all matters.  They claim to hear directly from God, and many claim that Jesus visits them in person…these so-called restored apostles believe they are called to lay the foundation and government for the new (earthly) Kingdom (one world church).  Their goal is complete and utter control of the church and subjugation of its current governance to them….This is a highly organized group with a global agenda (it is) well thought out, well strategized, and will be implemented with military precision.  The grid is in place---our future is planned.” (A Strong Delusion---the New Apostolic Reformation, thereformedtraveler.com)

Rick Joyner, one of the most visible and popular change-agent leaders in the NAR claims that faithful Christians who resist the “change” to “unity” or "oneness" process are under demonic influence.  In a further demonstration of his satanically twisted and inverted  reasoning processes Joyner said,

Some pastors and leaders who continue to resist this tide of unity will be removed from their place.  Some will become so hardened they will become opposers and resist God to the end.”  (Religious Trojan Horse, Brannon Howse, p. 146)

Joyner calls for a Great Christian Civil War to drive out authentic Christians (John 15:19) because they are too “rigid in doctrinal emphasis.” (ibid, p. 147)

Church growth guru and NAR leader C. Peter Wagner agrees.  Wagner, yet another “enlightened element,” claims that NAR is “changing the shape of Protestant Christianity around the world” and he and his fellow ‘over-shadowed’ travelers expect opposition from Bible-believing Christians:

We are well into the early adoption phase of the New Apostolic Reformation, when we can expect fairly strong objections from traditionalists who are threatened by change.” (ibid, p. 144)

Strange Fire

An ancient Chaldean occult doctrine, evolutionary transformism (change process) is the strange fire produced by the Brotherhood in fascinated but deluded minds within and without the Christian Church.  In the impeccably researched “Scientific Analysis of the Writings of Alice A. Bailey and their Applications,”  Robert A. Herrmann, Ph.D. has traced the evolutionary science so very prevalent today together with the concept of the Masters back to 1750 and the Spanish-French occultist, Martine’s de Pasqually (1715?-1779).  The term Secret Chiefs however, was introduced by Baron Hund (1772-1776) for his Strikt Observanz Masonic System (Luciferian religion). 

Herrmann writes that the idea that man is god is grounded in evolutionary change process,

“….where an individual spiritually evolves into higher and more meaningful forms until one actually becomes totally a spirit being on various evolutionary levels.  Further, Pasqually apparently introduced the human biological concept prior to Darwin’s expanding it to other biological entities.”  (ibid, Herrmann)

 According to the brilliant Russian philosopher, theologian, and visionary, Vladimir Soloviev (1850-1900) it will be by way of an evolutionary “change” process (initiation) that the chosen one will be transformed into the Antichrist. 

Soloviev foresaw the stunning events we are witnessing today:  the wholesale rejection of the God of Revelation and the fall of the Christian Church into idolatry, apostasy and paganism influenced and directed by a demonic outpouring effecting a transformation of consciousness issuing into a unified religion of Lucifer and the appearance of the Antichrist.

 In the "A Short Tale of the Antichrist"  Soloviev writes that prior to his transformation, the proud super-man is outwardly just, but within full of pride.  He is morally reprehensible:

".... He believes in God but loves nobody but himself. His relationship with Christ was quickly defined as one of superiority (for he will never) bow before Him like the most stupid of Christians (nor) mutter senselessly....'Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me'....'I, the bright genius, the superman! No, never!" (The Wrath of God: The Days of Antichrist, Livio Fanzaga, pp. 39-40)

As the super-mans' change-process and/or initiation (spiritual fall) progresses, instead of the former cold rational respect for Jesus Christ:

"...there was born and grew in his heart, first, a kind of terror, and then a burning, choking and corroding envy and furious breath-taking hatred." Devoured with envy of Jesus Christ he cries out "He rotted in the tomb, rotted like the lowest..." (ibid, pp. 40-41)

This is the moment the Evil One has been waiting for.  He openly approaches the proud super-man and possesses him:

"He saw those piercing eyes and heard...a strange voice, toneless...stifled, and yet clear, metallic and absolutely soulless as though coming from a phonograph." Satan pours out his spirit, saying, "I ask nothing of you, and I will help you for your own sake...Receive my spirit...it gives birth to you in power. At these words...the superman's lips opened of themselves, two piercing eyes came quite close to his face, and he felt a sharp, frozen stream enter into him and fill his whole being. And at the same time he was conscious of a wonderful strength, energy, lightness and rapture." (p. 43)

 The Christian Church: Undergoing an Evolutionary Change Process

 New Age leader David Spangler identifies evolution as the power of the angel Lucifer, thus when Djwhal Khul revealed that the fallen angel calling itself Master Jesus is assuming control of the Christian Church, he inadvertently affirmed Spangler's claim.  In other words, a fallen angel is the spirit of the evolutionary “change” into  apostasy process that allows Master Jesus to take control of the Christian Church, and this is why Djwhal Khul, speaking through Bailey, spoke of the day when,

 "Christianity will be in a state of chaotic division and upheavals. When this takes place . . ., the Master Jesus will take certain initial steps towards reassuming control of His Church… "(ibid, Herrmann, p. 573).

 Khul appears to be describing our age, an age marked by confusion, collapsing foundations and a Christian Church fractured, divided against itself and increasingly in defiance of the Holy Trinity.   The Christian Church is undergoing a deepening, spreading change process issuing into nihilistic moral relativism, accommodation to the world system, heresy, and open apostasy.  This 'change' into apostasy process is backed by a vast and growing global elite network espousing syncretic neo-Gnostic interfaith/inter-spirituality and kingdom of “God” on earth conceptions.  (1 Tim. 4:1) 

 The Global Occult Elite

 The global ‘elite’ community consists of theologians, prime ministers, secretaries of treasury, secretaries of state, philanthropists and global business leaders whose NWO vision calls for the convergence, on a global basis, of religion, multinational corporations, foundations and the political and sociological instruments that would form a one-world government designed to bring about a New World Order. ("Hope of the Wicked: the Master Plan to Rule the World," Ted Flynn)

 In the painstakingly researched "False Dawn: the United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion" Lee Penn calls our attention to the United Religions Initiative. The URI is to a significant extent animated by Luciferian-spirituality, thus is the leading edge of the rising global religion of Lucifer.  Penn notes that evolution is absolutely central to New Age theology which is a syncretistic stew of Liberal (evolutionary pantheist) Christianity, Luciferian Theosophy and Masonry, Spiritism, the Ancient Mysteries, Eastern Mysticism, Gnostic paganism, Wicca, Goddess worship, and adulation of Lucifer.

The URI has attracted a disparate group of activists and powerful supporters. For example, the Dalai Lama, progressive churchmen from the People's Republic of China, pro-gay Episcopalians, radical Muslims, feminist witches, rich capitalist foundations, the Club of Rome, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Temple of Understanding and Lucis Trust, formerly called Lucifer Publishing. Prominent supporters of the URI and globalism include occultist Robert Muller (former UN assistant secretary general and father of Common Core Curriculum), Neale Donald Walsh, George Soros, Mikhail Gorbachev, Maurice Strong, Ted Turner, and Barbara Marx Hubbard. (pp.5,7, 23-26)

New Age spirituality relies heavily on the revelations of the Brotherhood of Masters channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Penn notes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a progressive vision of spiritualized totalitarianism that includes: worship of Lucifer as the light-bearer and giver of wisdom; man as god; death is not real; extreme population control including abortion, eugenics and euthanasia; hatred of faithful Christians and Jews; Luciferian initiation of all who enter the New Age; and forecasting a pending 'selection' of mankind in which initiates enter the New Age and reactionaries face extinction:

"For the New Age Apostles of "progressive" Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution." (ibid, p. 7)

When a critical mass of humanity have succumbed to satanic subjection, infestation and possession, the New Age will commence when the Brotherhood of Masters bring to an end,

 “…the long silence which has persisted since Atlantean days," and "renew an ancient sharing of secrets." Thus "in the immediate future....Masters will walk openly among men...openly guiding and directing the affairs of humanity." (Djwhal Khul speaking through Alice Bailey, False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 262)

While denying Jesus Christ God incarnate, the Creator Who spoke all things into existence ex nihilo and made man in His spiritual image, thus the true and only source of Light and life, the Brotherhood of Masters are succeeding with the methods of false light among the many travelers of the broad way toward the building of Lucifer's kingdom of “God” here on earth…a unified Global Church of the One God: Lucifer ( http://one-faith-of-god.org/about.asp )

Kundalini (Serpent Power) & Satan's Servants of Error in Modern America

"We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us.  Hereby know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error." (1 John 4:6)

In this verse the emphasis is on the believer's ability to discern between a spirit of truth and a spirit of error, heresy, apostasy, lies and cleverly disguised deceptions such as modern evolutionary thinking and methodological naturalism.

The spirit of truth is relatively easy to discern as such people come willingly to the light of truth (John 3:21).  Having a heart for truth, they really and truly want to know and embrace Truth.  On the other hand, the spirit of error is more difficult to discern because the taproot and energy of this spirit is in Satan, the father of lies, of false gods, cleverness, sophistry, false science and evolution, heresy, apostasy, rebellion, murder, and envy.

Satan is the great deceiver (Rev. 12:9).  He uses his servants of deception to manipulate, confuse, and mislead (Ephesians 4:14).   Today his most powerfully influential servants are the world's occult 'elites' but are also found throughout the secular, Christian, cult and occult New Age arenas. (2 Cor. 11:14-15)

One of Satan's important servants, the evangelical apostate Alice Bailey (1880-1949), is a major architect of today's rapidly spreading serpent-powered occult New Age movement, a spiritual juggernaut that effects a counter-conversion of consciousness that closes the soul to Jesus Christ while opening it to powers of darkness.

According to Bailey's contemporary apostles, the 'Plan' for the coming New Age can be traced back to the fall of Lucifer and his angels from heaven. Bailey's demon-master, the Tibetan, described the revolt of the angels against the Holy God as part of the "divine plan of evolution," by which angels "descended from their sinless and free state of existence in order to develop full divine awareness on earth."  (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 224)

In this total reversal and inversion of the Revealed Word of God, the Fall of man was really an evolutionary ascent to liberating knowledge by which man's eyes were opened to good (Satan) and evil (the Holy God).  Thus Helena Blavatsky, another important servant of Satan and architect of New Age spirituality concluded that it is but natural,

"...to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind.  For it was he who was the 'Harbinger of Light,' bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah...Indeed, (mankind) was taught wisdom and the hidden knowledge by the 'Fallen Angel."   As man's benefactor, Lucifer continues to assist man's evolution.   In the words of the apostate evangelical, now New Age theologian David Spangler, a disciple of both Blavatsky and Bailey, Lucifer is 'the angel of man's evolution."  (ibid, pp. 224-225)

From the time of the Apostles to our own day, an unbroken chain of Satan's servants have disguised themselves as super apostles and ministers of righteousness who as always are,

"...the inventors of impure heresies (the) profaners and apostates (who open) their mouths wide against the divine glory". ...Church Father Cyril of Alexandria

These spirits hate Truth and most generally elevate themselves among God's family so as to lead believers into compromise and conformity with the paganized world system.  On behalf of what Satan's contemporary ministers term 'rational' and 'scientific' they sweep away the essentials of the faith necessary both for salvation and the recognition of evil. (2 Peter 2:18) And without the grace and spiritual discernment that is born of true faith, Satan ceases to exist in the eyes of the spiritually blind, whether secular or Christian.  
 
Commenting on the incredible blindness of our scientifically enlightened, theologically compromised and apostate modern society, the cultural theorist Denis de Rougemont (1906-1985), author of "The Devil's Share, An Essay on the Diabolic in Modern Society" observed:
 
"What appears to me incredible is not the Devil, not the Angels, but rather the candor and the credulity of the skeptic, and the unpardonable sophism of which they show themselves to be the victims (they say) 'The Devil is a gent with red horns and a long tail; now I cannot believe in a gent with red horns and a long tail; therefore I don't believe in the Devil.'  And so the Devil has them precisely where he wants them." (The Coming Darkness, John Ankerberg and John Weldon, p. 61)

When believers find spiritual truth trivialized and diminished, marginalized and ridiculed in the church, some will go in search of a faithful church, some will fall away entirely, and others will turn to cults and the occult.

Tragically, since Satan's ministers ridicule and reject the authority of God's Word, the second and third groups have no guidelines for evaluating and testing the occult/Eastern spiritual experiences and devices they encounter such as the enneagram, Jungian psychology, the MBTI, kundalini yoga, and meditation techniques already popular in our culture, apostatizing churches and steadily creeping into compromised churches.  Thus they can easily stumble into the spirit world and if not already fallen away, then onto the broad smooth way of apostasy:

".....acceptance of the enneagram, if not already a sign of apostasy, must lead to a loss of faith since it distorts the Gospel and contradicts Catholic doctrine, depriving the individual of a genuine Catholic language and setting in its place what has been most aptly termed as psychobabbling. What is most puzzling, however, is the continued silence of the Church's official teachers who know that this absurdity is being promoted and spread among our Catholic school teachers and priests."  (NCCB Preparing Cautionary Note on Use of Enneagram, Paul Likoudis, Catholic Culture.org)

For an eye-opening look at the demon-haunted Carl Jung and a penetrating analysis of his occult, alchemical, Gnostic, and demon-informed psychology and connections to the wildly popular Enneagram and MBTI, read "Carl Jung, Neo-Gnosticism, & the MBTI," by Rev. Ed Hird, past National Chair of Anglican Renewal Ministries of Canada:  http://www3.telus.net/st_simons/arm03.htm

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." 1 John 4:1

In his best-selling book, "Strange Fire," pastor John MacArthur masterfully chronicles the unsavory history underpinning the modern Charismatic/Apostolic Movement (NAR) and its false prophets.  The New Apostolic Reformation is both a breeding ground for scandal, bad doctrine, and spiritual chicanery and the fastest growing "Christian" movement in the world.  MacArthur lays out a chilling case for rejecting its false prophets and for exposing their errors to the cleansing light of Truth.

In his penetrating analysis of the Charismatic/Apostolic movement, Fr. Seraphim Rose notes that the spiritist manifestations (i.e., impartation, holy laughter, drunk in the spirit, roaring, barking, hissing, slain in the spirit) experienced in Charismatic churches are found in the occult New Age movement.   The spirit that invaded the Charismatic movement during the 'Toronto Blessing' is not the Holy Spirit, said Rose, but the kundalini spirit (serpent power), the same spirit that ancient Egyptians, Hindus, yoga practitioners, and New Agers are familiar with.

From the time of the ancients serpent power has been important to religious and mythological symbolism all around the world. Within the Egyptian mysteries, serpent power was associated with,

..."the elemental forces that were in play before the creation of the world." (Carl Teichrib, Gods of Ancient Egypt, p. 182)

In his book, "The Sign of the Serpent," Mark Balfour relates how pervasive serpent symbols are within India and the Hindu religion:

"Any observant traveler who moves from the snow-tipped Himalayas in the North to the sun-soaked sands of Cape Comorin at India's southern tip, will encounter – particularly in the rural areas and at sacred centres of pilgrimage wherever Siva, God of both Divine Wisdom and regeneration, is the presiding Deity – the serpent motif sculptured within shrines, impressed on myriads of stone implants in the ground and depicted in art." (A Short Guide to Occult Symbols: Serpent Power, Carl Teichrib, 2005, Kjos Ministries)

Balfour elaborates on this belief:

"In Hinduism, the Cosmic Serpent – Ananta Sesha – symbolic of timeless eternity, carries the world on his 1000-fold [Cobra] hood...As the creative impulse stirs within the great Serpent in the Sky – when passive idea becomes active thought – the forces of attraction and repulsion come into play as 'spirit' begins its involution into "matter." (ibid, Teichrib)

Moreover, Kundalini yoga, a discipline within Hinduism, teaches that latent serpent energy lies at the base of the etheric human spine,

"...like a coiled serpent, ready to spring." (Harper's Dictionary of Hinduism, p. 156, ibid, Teichrib)

Through strenuous yoga techniques, serpent power uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body. Serpent power is considered,

"(to be a) concentrated field of intelligent cosmic, invisible energy absolutely vital to life beginning in the base of the spine as a man or a woman begins to evolve in their first incarnation." (The Donning International Encyclopedic Psychic Dictionary, p. 343, ibid, Teichrib)

"Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field..." – Genesis 3:1

Serpent power is imparted by laying on of hands, or Shakti-pat.  The demon-possessed Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajineesh, called the "divine drunkard" by his disciples and thousands of worshippers in India and America, encouraged his devotees to come and drink from him, meaning, receive his touch:

"His spiritual 'wine' was often passed on with a single touch to the head (Shakti-pat), at which his followers would collapse in ecstatic laughter. Another famous guru, Swami Muktananda, would hold meetings at which thousands of his followers from around the world came to receive his touch.  They experienced uncontrollable laughing, roaring, barking, hissing, crying, shaking, as well as falling unconscious." (Rose, p. 217)

These demon-possessed gurus were imparting to their worshippers experiences they had undergone during initiation rituals and which they attributed to spirit-possession.

Veteran researcher Brooks Alexander observes of Rajineesh, Muktananda and other gurus:

"All of these gurus espouse a similar philosophy, and they all turn it into practice in a similar way.  It is a pattern that we find not only in tantra (Indo-Tibetan occultism), but in European Satanism, antinomian Gnosticism, and ancient pagan sorcery as well." (Book Review: Riders of the Cosmic Circuit," in SCP Journal, Vol. 7, No. 1, 1987, p. 39)

According to Alexander, Satan's servants have successfully assimilated occult Eastern teachings and techniques into our church and our culture.  With remarkable speed and ease, Eastern and occult ideas and spiritist techniques for contacting spirits such as trance music, brain-altering drugs, meditation and yoga are being propagated to undiscerning Westerners and Americans, within and without the church, on a mass scale,

"...they are filtered through the pervasive secularism of our culture.  In this way they are demystified without changing their essential content.  The basic components of an Eastern/occult world view are recast in forms of expression that are naturalistic, scientific, and humanistic...Occult philosophy is being secularized and psychologized with increasing refinement....Their underlying themes run through contemporary science, economics, politics, art, psychology, and religion."  (The Coming Darkness, p. 55)

"Be sober, be vigilant: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." 1  Peter 5:8

Satan's servants are out in the open today.  They have successfully initiated a devastating assault upon the whole body of the Christian church and by extension, upon Western and American society in ways that to previous generations would have seemed unthinkable.    Therefore,

"Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil."  Ephesians 6:11

And though all may seem dark, hopeless and lost, fear not, for the faithful believer, the one who seeks and perseveres in Truth, is of God:

"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." (1 John 4:4)

The Worldview of Fallen Angels

".....the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one."  1 John 5:19    "Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness."  Luke 11:35
 
During the 1970s Satanism and possession became front page news here in America.  It was during this time that the eminent theologian Malachi Martin, a former Jesuit professor at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome published his shattering book on demon possession. 

 Martin's "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," presents five cases of actual possession that express important aspects of the worldview of fallen angels which allow us to not only identify these elements but discern their devastating effects within the whole body of the Christian church, the minds of millions of Americans and by extension, our nation.
 
To begin, the worldview of fallen angels will always take the form of nature worship, or worship of created stuff (i.e., energy, matter) as opposed to worship of the living, personal Creator Who created everything. Thus it will be naturalistic, meaning life created itself, monistic (i.e., World Soul, Omega, Quantum Void) and virulently anti-Genesis account creation ex nihilo.
 
Through the demon possessing Carl, a gifted parapsychologist, Hearty, the priest conducting Carl's exorcism learns that the possessing demons engineered Carl's astral travels and taught him "the knowledge of the universe." (pp. 386, 390)
 
With respect to the idea of "astral travels," occult lore holds that etheric or out-of-body astral traveling takes place within the astral planes and sub-planes comprising the habitations,

"(of all) supernatural entities, the locale of gods and demons, the void where the thoughtforms dwell, the region inhabited by spirits of the air and other elements, and the various heavens and hells with their angelic and demonic hosts....With the help of ritual procedures, trained persons believe that they can 'rise on the planes,' and experience these regions in full awareness." ("Beyond the Body: The Human Double and the Astral planes, Benjamin Walker, 1974, pp. 117-8)

From the time of Nimrod, fallen angels have been teaching astral plane conceptions, which is why they are well-known around the world in their many arcane traditions:

"References to this reality are the Dreaming of the Australian Aborigines, the Spirit-world of Shamanism, the Duart of the ancient Egyptians, the Bardo (Intermediate State) of the Tibetans, the Imaginal world of Islamic Esotericism – e.g. the Barzakh (Interworld) or of Suhrawardi and the Mithal (Imaginal realm) of Ibn Arabi – the Universe of Asiyah of some Kabbalists, or of Yetzirah according to others. Other descriptions are the Nervo degree of the Physical State of Theon, the Astral or 2nd Prakritic plane (corresponding to the Linga Sharira or Subtle or Astral body) and the Kama (Desire-Plane) of Blavatsky, the Astral Plane of the Adyar school of Theosophy and of popular occultism, Rudolf Steiner's "Soul World"; and the Vital and Subtle Physical described by Sri Aurobindo and Mirra. These are just a few of the innumerable descriptions of this plane of existence." (The Astral Plane, kheper.net) 

The Apostle Paul speaks not of astral planes and the beings supposedly existing there but of fallen angels, the "spirits of wickedness under the heavens," (Eph. 6:12) and their chief, "the prince of the powers of the air." (Eph. 2:2) 

According to Paul, fallen angels are dispersed in a multitude throughout the whole expanse of sky which is visible to us, the dwelling place for the host of fallen angels who have been cast down from heaven.    

With respect to the "knowledge of the universe,"  imparted by the evil spirit, Carlwas taught that "humans are just a part of the universe...parts of a greater physical being."  This non-life-bearing being or substance is the evolving "universe of matter" and "psychic forces" that somehow account for human beings.  In modern scientific theory, the idea that life mechanically emerges or evolves from inert chemicals or matter is abiogenesis.  In this way of thinking, humans are excited nodes of the universe, as some quantum physicists teach, or "star folk," the evolved product of "star stuff" according to Carl Sagan. 

During the five-day exorcism, the vision of the self-created universe of animated matter taught by the possessing spirit was disclosed to Hearty.   According to the evil spirit:

 "...men, women, animals, plants, cities, oceans (are) interconnected.  There is really no difference between one thing and anything else....land, ocean, animals, humans, plants are one living organism clad in the shell of breathable atmosphere.  Psychic forces bind it all together....It is a self-creating, self-protecting, self-developing thing.....Earth as mother, as womb, as god, as tomb, as a whole unity protected by its own shell and its own strength (is) all there is." (ibid, p. 395)
 
This is the likeness of today's occult Luciferian New Age spirituality, right down to the concept of the Big Bang (Cosmic Egg), which supposedly created matter and energy (psychic forces) in the demon's description of the universe as "self-creating;"  inflation in the description of the universe as a "self-developing thing;" Goddess Gaia as the "Earth as self-protecting mother;" and both the collectivist (oneness, sameness) vision of totalitarian socialism and its pagan ideal of androgyny based on the interconnectivity of men, women, children, plants, and oceans with the one substance.

 One of the most important exorcism cases involved David, a Catholic priest who became obsessed with the Hindu-pantheist evolutionism of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, one of the ‘fathers’ of occult New Age spirituality. Teilhard’s destructive influence is widespread today within the Catholic Church and increasingly within the Protestant.  
 
Martin writes that Teilhard set out to make it intellectually possible for a Christian to accept the theories of Darwin and his own Hindu pantheist evolutionary conception  and still retain his faith.  But faith in what?
 
 A "new" andscientifically "improved" Christianity--- a syncretic, Hindu-pantheist religion of evolution:
 
“(a) religion of the future” (definable as a “religion of evolution”) cannot fail to appear before long: a new mysticism, the germ of which (as it happens when anything is born) must be recognizable somewhere in our environment, here and now." (Christianity and Evolution,Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, p. 240, on-line source, lighthousetrailsresearch) 

 ". . . the Cross still stands . . . But this is on one condition, and one only: that it expand itself to the dimensions of a New Age, and cease to present itself to us as primarily (or even exclusively) the sign of a victory over sin. . . (pp. 219-220)

"The more I study the matter, the more I am forced to accept this evidence that original sin, conceived in the form still attributed to it today, is an intellectual and emotional straitjacket." (p. 80)

". . . if a Christ is to be completely acceptable as an object of worship, he must be presented as the saviour of the idea and reality of evolution. (p.78)

"A general convergence of religions upon a universal Christ who fundamentally satisfies them all: that seems to me the only possible conversion of the world, and the only form in which a religion of the future can be conceived." (p. 130)

"What I am proposing to do is to narrow that gap between pantheism and Christianity by bringing out what one might call the Christian soul of Pantheism or the pantheist aspect of Christianity." (p. 56)

"From the most distant origin of things until their unforeseeable consummation, through the countless convulsions of boundless space, the whole nature is slowly and irresistibly undergoing the supreme consecration. Fundamentally — since all time and for ever — but one single thing is being made in creation: the body of Christ." (pp. 74-75)

". . . I can be saved only by becoming one with the universe." (p. 128)

". . . the Christian renaissance whose time is biologically due is on the point of emerging. . ."(p. 148)

"After what will soon be two thousand years, Christ must be born again, he must be reincarnated in a world that has become too different from that in which he lived." (p. 95)

"I believe that the Messiah whom we await, whom we all without any doubt await, is the universal Christ; that is to say, the Christ of evolution." (P. 95)

In "Teilhard de Chardin: Trojan Horse of Vatican II/Heretic Extraordinaire," Dr. J.P. Hubert quotes Teilhard as saying his ambition is to spread around a new religion, 

"....in which the personal God ceases to be the great Neolithic proprietor of former times in order to become the soul of our world..."  (amaiceducation.blog.com, 2011)

Teilhard sought to make the Hermetic transformism of Darwin's biological evolution palatable to Catholic theologians eager to embrace modern evolutionary science, said Hubert, and while Teilhard was barred by the Vatican from teaching his heretical theology, he was never forced to repudiate it as heretical.  Clearly his writings establish at the very least he was a notorious pagan materialist heretic,  

"arguably the most infamous of the 20th century. Given that he essentially instituted a New Religion he was an apostate from the faith as well."  

It would not seem illegitimate, said Hubert, to wonder whether based on Teilhard's admission of a mystical experience if his heresy and apostasy were satanically inspired. Teilhard describes his strange encounter:  

 "The man was walking in the desert...when the Thing swooped down on him.  Then, suddenly, a breath of scorching air passed across his forehead, broke through the barrier of his closed eyelids; an irresistible rapture took possession of him....mightily refashioning the enfeebled fibres of his being.  And at the same time the anguish of some superhuman peril oppressed him, a confused feeling that the force which had swept down upon him was equivocal, turbid, the combined essence of all evil and goodness.  You called me: here I am grown weary of abstractions, of attenuations, of the wordiness of social life, you wanted to pit yourself against Reality entire and untamed.  I was waiting for you in order to be made holy.  And now I am established on you for life, or for death....He who has once seen me can never forget me: he must either damn himself with me or save me with himself.  O you who are divine and mighty, what is your name? Speak."

 Hubert concludes that Teilhardism is,

 "...no doubt of Satanic origin---a true "religion of man," if ever there was one."

 Prior to David's obsession with Teilhardism, Martin writes that he was destined to become a professor of anthropology at a Catholic university.  But afterward, David came to see that the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, and Adam and Eve as the first man and woman and parents of all mankind and how they fell and passed on Original Sin to all human beings were utterly contrary to Darwinian theory and modern scientific thinking.  

 Believing that Teilhardism could bridge the gap, David taught anthropology from a "modern science" perspective, even going so far as to exclude traditional presentations of doctrines about creation ex nihilo and Original Sin.  But after introducing Teilhardism to his students, doubts arose when he observed the effects of this teaching upon Jonathan, one of his students who was a priest. 

The startling influence of Teilhardism upon Jonathan led him to insist,

"that all the sacraments were no more than expressions of man's natural unity with the world around him." 

David saw clearly for the first time that Teilhardism exalted man as an animal and pictured,

 "God as no more than the very bowels of earth and sky and the spatial distances of the universe with all its expanding galaxies." (Martin, p. 107)

Jonathan left the church and founded his own cult among wealthy Manhattan families.  He preached that the universe and all people were as “one” in a naturally occurring mystical union which he called "Abba Father." (p. 127)

 Martin writes that Jonathan had come under the dominion of an evil spirit and David was called in to exorcise him.  However, speaking through Jonathan the evil spirit ridiculed David, saying they both believed the same things, and that if Jonathan needed exorcism David needed it more.

 This led David to many weeks of agonizing soul-searching in which he re-examined and finally repented of the intellectual arrogance that led him to embrace Teilhardism along with the "higher criticism" of Scriptures that reduced the Revealed Word to myth, allegory and delusion and the death of Jesus to an insignificant event of the pastrather than,

 "…an ever present source of personal forgiveness and unshakable hope for any future." (p. 149) 

According to Martin, the evil spirit influencing David and who had nearly succeeded in killing his faith now taunted him that to return to faith would entail slavery of mind and will.   But when David deliberately rejected the demon's taunts, 

 "...a great and breathtaking dimension full of relief....flooded his mind and will and imagination....And when he now looked at the world of nature around him...and heard the song of a mockingbird nearby, he received it no longer as he had while a Teilhardian evolutionist, as 'intimations of molecules endlessly regrouping,' but rather 'of endless life for each person, and of love without a shadow." (pp. 163, 165)

 His faith in God, Christ, Holy Spirit and Scripture restored, David was ready to exorcise the evil spirit who possessed Jonathan.  He did so,

 "...in the name of God who created him (Jonathan) and you (evil spirit), and of Jesus of Nazareth who saved him!  You will depart and get back to the uncleanness and agony you chose." (p. 169)  

 As the five cases of possession and actual exorcism show, the teachings of evolution in all its forms, together with naturalism, astral plane traveling and other occult magic teachings are worldview tools by which fallen angels and demons have been separating mankind from God the Creator since the pre-flood world.  And today, variations of these same teachings have captured the minds of millions of Americans within and without the whole body of the Christian church.

 Malachi Martin has done the whole body of the church a great service by extensively documenting the worldview of fallen angels.  And now that he is with our Lord, he has doubtless heard Him say,

"...welcome home, my good and faithful servant!"

The Devil's New World Religion

With over 500 pages and 1,200 footnotes, Ted Flynn’s book, “Hope of the Wicked: the Master Plan to Rule the World,” details many of the agendas of the global ‘elite’ community.  With several thousand quotes it uses the words of prime ministers, secretaries of treasury, secretaries of state, philanthropists and global business leaders to describe their NWO vision and their plans to bring it about as well as the convergence, on a global basis, of multinational corporations, foundations and the political and sociological instruments that would form a one-world government designed to bring about a New World Order.

Flynn writes that there is a confluence of events pointing to major changes that for many years have been coming to the world and they appear to be coming toward us more quickly now. Flynn argues that an 1846 heavenly apparition, a prophecy delivered by the Blessed Virgin Mary to two peasant children and approved by the Catholic Church is a stark and terrible summary of the major changes that have been coming to the world in general but the West and America in particular:

All the civil governments will have one and the same plan, which will be to abolish and do away with every religious principle, to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritualism and vice of all kinds….The mountains and all Nature will tremble in terror, for the disorders and crimes of men have pierced the vault of the heavens…The righteous will suffer greatly.  Their prayers, their penances and their tears will rise up to Heaven and all of God’s people will beg for forgiveness and mercy…And then Jesus Christ, in an act of His justice and His great mercy will command His Angels to have all His enemies put to death….and the persecutors of the Church of Jesus Christ and all those given over to sin will perish…”  (p. 445)

In another apparition approved by the Church, the Blessed Virgin Mary warned of the “annihilation of nations.” (ibid, p. 445)

Materialism, Atheism, Communism, & Annihilation of Nations and People

Friedrich Engels (1820-1895), a 19th century German political philosopher figures prominently in Karl Marx’s life.  Beginning in 1844, Engels and Marx, a God-hating materialist, collaborated closely in the foundation of modern Communism.  By 1848 they had produced The Communist Manifesto and similar works.

The tragedy of Engels is that before joining forces with Marx he had been a faithful Christian.  After meeting Marx for the first time he described him as a monster subjected to devils.  Marx does not,

“…walk or run, he jumps on his heels full of anger…He stretches his arms far away in the air; the wicked fist is clenched, he rages without ceasing, as if ten thousand devils had caught him by the hair.”  (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 36)

Engels was very well aware of the dangers of entangling himself with devilish sons of perdition like Marx.  In his book, “Schelling, Philosopher in Christ,” he warns that a devilish spirit has entered into a great part of mankind in the heart of Christendom and now there are only two kinds of men, Christians and anti-Christians:

Since the terrible French Revolution, an entirely new, devilish spirit has entered into a great part of mankind, and godlessness lifts its daring head in such an unashamed and subtle manner that you would think the prophecies of Scripture are fulfilled (Matthew 24:11)..And St. Paul says in II Thes. 2:3: That man of sin shall be revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is God, or that is worshipped…The coming of the Wicked is after the working of Satan….(therefore we must have)  nothing to do any more with indifference or coldness toward the Lord (for as of now) we have only…Christians and anti-Christians….We see the false prophets among us…They travel throughout Germany and wish to intrude everywhere; they teach their Satanic teachings in the market-places and bear the flag of the Devil from one town to another, seducing the poor youth, in order to throw them in the deepest abyss of hell and death.” (ibid, p. 40)

The devilish fleshy spirit responsible for converting Engels to godless Communism was Moses Hess, the same man who had previously converted Marx.  After meeting Engels in Cologne Hess wrote:

He parted from me as an overzealous Communist.  This is how I produce ravages…” (ibid, p. 43)

The spiritual counter-conversion of Engels was striking and hideous.  Like Marx, he no longer cared about the destruction of millions of people on behalf of the Revolution. 

A bloodless Marx writes of the coming genocide of millions of men, women, and children:

“A silent, unavoidable revolution is taking place in society, a revolution that cares as little about the human lives it destroys as an earthquake cares about the houses it ravages.  Classes and races…too weak to dominate the new conditions of existence will be defeated.” (ibid, p. 42)

In a similar vein, a cold-hearted Engels speaks of the coming annihilation of millions of Christians, Jews, and other peoples and nations:

The next world war will make whole reactionary peoples disappear from the face of the earth.  This, too, is progress.  Obviously this cannot be fulfilled without crushing some delicate national flower.   But without violence and without pitilessness nothing can be obtained in history.”  (p. 43) 

The Revolution

The Revolution is a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in the devil, the spirit of hate, murder, atheism, apostasy, and ‘this world only’ naturalism, materialism, pantheism, and spiritualism.   The Revolution is war against the supernatural Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, which in the words of Marx’s anarchist comrade Bakunin, are the “cursed and fatal principle of authority.”

The sentiment of the Revolution is satanic pride:

"….which spurns subjection to any master whatever, whether of divine or human origin." (Bakunin, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 63)

The nature of the Revolution is the antithesis of authentic Christian faith. Whereas Christian faith is joy, patience, love, truth, humbleness, perseverance, submission in all things to the Will of God and blessed eternal life in Paradise (earth perfected), the Satanic counterfeit is full of hatred, rebelliousness, burning envy and covetousness against man and God, ingratitude, mockery, doubts, lies, revulsion, blasphemy, thoughts of murder and eternal life in Hell.

Fueled by monstrously inflated pride and dissatisfaction with self, the world, society, and God the Father Almighty, it devotes its' infernal energy toward "change," or as Marx put it, toward the wholesale destruction of the Christian-based Old Order and the establishment of a religiously pantheist, totalitarian world order because:

"The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed." (Karl Marx, Marx and Satan, p. 59)  

The New World Religion  

 “(The UN is) a weird and diabolical convergence of New Age mysticism, pantheism, aboriginal animism, Communism, socialism, Luciferian occultism, apostate Christianity, Islam, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism.”   (The New World Religion: Teaching God’s Children to Worship ‘Divine Nature.’ William Jasper, 2002)

The Revolution, of which the U.N., Lucis Trust (formerly Lucifer Publishing), the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Temple of Understanding and Baca Grande (Colorado based New Age Vatican City) are integral components, intends the complete overturning of Biblical moral and spiritual values enjoyed by Western and American civilization for over a thousand years.  As part of this goal, the Bible must be reinterpreted in terms of evolutionary pantheism, man must be fundamentally remade by eradication of every vestige of Imago Dei from his inner being, and Christian leadership reduced to a non-factor.  Flynn writes that this has largely been accomplished,

“…by placing their own leaders in place where they exert tremendous influence.  Much of this program of revolution was confirmed by Franklin D. Roosevelt in his book, ‘Our Way’ (which) summed up, the spiritual and immoral goals of world revolution (and how they) are being achieved, and nowhere more so than in the United States.” (Flynn, p. 361)

Primary goals are:

a. Destruction of the Judao-Christian-based foundation of Western and American civilization;

b. Dissolution of legal government;

c. Destruction of sovereignty and patriotism;

d. Demoralizing, atheitizing and bringing the people of the United States into slavery via liberated sin nature and penury via graduated income taxes, property taxes, inheritance taxes, sales taxes, a massive welfare state and now socialized healthcare;

e. The abolition of God-given right to life via reproductive rights (abortion) and euthanasia and of private property via onerous building codes, zoning regulations and restrictions and by taxing property out of existence and targeting inheritance with bigger and bigger taxes;

f. Destruction of the traditional monogamous family unit via divorce, co-habitation, alternative lifestyles, abortion, pornography, hedonism and homosexuality

Before the top-down spiritually pantheist world order dominated by an occult ‘elite’ can come into existence, there must be a politically correct philosophy of ‘new’ thought and a philosophy of pantheist-based natural religion and natural science to usher in the coming political, social, legal and educational aspects of the new order since New Age evolutionary pantheism is a politically communist, ecologically ‘sustainable,’ sexually androgynous way of living. 

In her two books on New Age evolutionary pantheism, ‘The Hidden Rainbow,’ and ‘A Planned Deception,’ Constance Cumbey writes that these goals have largely been accomplished:

The New Age Movement is a religion complete with its own Bibles, prayers and mantras, Vatican City/Jerusalem equivalents, priests and gurus, born again experiences (they call it ‘rebirthing’), spiritual laws and commandments, psychics and prophets and nearly every other indicia of a religion.” (Flynn, p. 361)

According to Cumbey, the Plan for the new order includes the installation of a New Age messiah, implementation of a New Age totalitarian government and new world religion under Maitreya.  As well, there are plans to implement a universal identification system, universal credit system, universal tax, universal draft, and a world food and water authority that will control all of the world’s food and water supplies.  To ensure that all people worship the New Age messiah, authentic Christianity and faithful Judaism will be completely stamped out along with all faithful Christians and Jews.

Toward this end, the evil spirit energizing and directing the Revolution intends to fully possess the Christian faith and refashion it completely.  In furtherance of his goal, the devil has audaciously declared that the supernatural Holy God the Father Almighty has been isolated in His transcendence and is therefore dead, so though the notion of God is retained, the devil proposes a functionless God that perhaps serves to ignite the Big Bang and set evolution in motion. 

 According to the devil, the Revolution is now moving with great force and speed across America nearly unopposed and will not stop until every vestige of faith in the supernatural God has been obliterated in every heart. Every man, woman, and child will experience a counter-conversion---a Satanic Initiation in the words of New Age insider David Spangler---to a ‘new’ pantheist spiritualism dressed in Christian symbols and terminology, an anti-gospel preached by anti-saints from the void who will assure men of their salvation though they will find only the leering face of the devil.

The Enneagram: A Satanic Occult Spiritual Tool within the Church

Over the course of many years, doctrines of demons--- occult doctrines, symbols, psycho-spiritual technologies and tools have been creeping into the whole body of the Christian church, thus for example we see some churches forgoing the cross of Christ in favor of peculiar contemporary logos bearing a striking similarity to the powerful occult symbol, the Oroboros (the body of the serpent) while others advertise themselves as the church of One Spirit (interfaith/interspirituality).    Psycho-spiritual techniques for channeling the divine essence or spark “within” are becoming  immensely popular in many contemporary Mega Churches as are occult spiritual tools such as the Enneagram, which is not only used and promoted by some Christians, but defended as a psychological tool based on biblical principles.

The Enneagram however, is the antithesis of God’s Word and Way of Jesus Christ God Incarnate (Romans 3:24; 6:23; 10:9-10; Eph. 1:7; 2:8-9)  Its inventor, George Ilych Gurdjieff and his disciples, Peter Damien Ouspensky and Oscar Ichazo  were very active in the occult, spiritism, Theosophy (Ouspensky), channeling, yoga, drugs, devil worship, and a study of the pantheist/panentheist and reincarnation conceptions of Middle Eastern religions. 

Gurdjieff was an Armenian teacher of occult spiritual philosophies and techniques based on knowledge he acquired during contacts with secret societies as recounted in his book, “Meetings with Remarkable Men.”   Though Gurdjieff was aware of Luciferian Theosophy and other occult spiritual philosophies he decided to found his own order based on doctrines of spiritual enlightenment through meditation and heightened self-awareness. (occultopedia.com)

Gurdjieff’s system incorporates ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, biological and spiritual theories of evolution, Gnostic pantheist conceptions of a Divine One Substance, and various other occult pagan doctrines such as esoteric Kabbalah, Taoism, Buddhism and Greek nature philosophy.

Gurdjieff’s techniques included specially adapted forms of hypnotism, total obedience to a guru who has achieved enlightenment, constant self-observation, hard physical labor and demeaning tasks, intense emotionalism and dance routines. 

The aim of Gurdjieff’s system is to shock the initiate into a new self-awareness that will open the psyche to communication with the divine essence “above” that is also “within,” or the Master, in the words of Rhonda Byrne, author of The Secret:

People go through their whole lives chasing everything in the material world, and they fail to discover the greatest treasure of all, which is within them.  Shut your eyes to the outside world.  Direct your thoughts and words inside of you.  The Master within you is the key to all the treasures in the world.” (Rhonda Byrne, “The Secret Daily Teachings”)

With this understanding, the goal of the Enneagram comes to light.  Its purpose is twofold: to lead a person to self-awareness and second, to an awakening of the divine Self “within.”   “Self” is capitalized because “Self” is considered to be divine.

Ouspensky reframed Gurdjieff’s ideas as the Fourth Way and his teachings on the Enneagram appear in his books, “In Search of the Miraculous” and “The Fourth Way.”

In “What is the Enneagram?” Marcia Montenegro explains that the nine numbers most likely originate with Oscar Ichazo’s belief in the “nine divine forms” of “Self,” a spiritist philosophy derived from the Gnostic view of the “Self” as divine and pure and from the esoteric values of Sacred Geometry:

Ichazo was heavily involved in psychedelic drugs and shamanism and asserted that he had “received instructions from a higher entity called Metatron” and that his group was “guided by an interior master.” (solasisters.com, May 24, 2011)

Ichazo’s pupil Naranjo, a psychiatrist who studied with him in Chile passed on the Enneagram teachings to Jesuit Bob Ochs.   Ochs brought it into Roman Catholic circles at the occult New Age Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California where Naranjo taught. (ibid, “A Closer Look at the Enneagram,” Dorothy Garrity Ranaghan, 1989, p. 9)

At home within much of the Roman Catholic Church, the Enneagram was welcomed into Protestant Evangelical circles back in 2006 as Lighthouse Trails reports: 

Next year’s National Pastors Convention will be using an occultic tool called the enneagram.  The tool will be used during one of the Critical Concerns Courses.  An introduction of the course, Understanding the Enneagram: Insights for Spiritual Transformation says “This course will provide personal and biblical perspectives from the enneagram, an ancient tool being rediscovered in the church. “(National Pastor’s Convention Using Occultic Enneagram, lighthousetrailsresearch.com, Dec. 12, 2006)

The ultimate purpose of the Enneagram is to initiate a person into something far beyond the conscious control of the human will, for once a person has been initiated their spirit/soul is open to demonic bondage, harassment and madness.  Thus to “go within” so as to channel the Divine Self “within,” is to perform the cult of Satan which opens the spirit/soul to contact with powers and principalities and their chief, the devil.   Initiation inevitably results in a counter-conversion from the Holy God in Three Persons to self and Satan and from there to bondage, terror and blackness.

The common thread running through all occult doctrine, symbols, psycho-spiritual technologies and tools such as the Enneagram is the diabolical mind of the serpent, the same fallen angel who tempted Adam and Eve with the words, “Ye shall be as Gods” but now seduces with the words, “go within.”

The Devil in Our Age of Apostasy

In “The Spiritist Fallacy,” a penetrating analysis of the Luciferian Theosophy and Spiritism overtaking Western civilization, the highly respected French traditionalist metaphysician Rene Guenon explained that the theories of William James (1842-1910), the father of American psychology, are examples of 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.”

Second, the notion that the subconscious puts man in contact with the Divine Substance “within” puts God,

“…in the inferior states of being, in feris in the literal sense of this expression.  This then is a properly ‘infernal’ doctrine, a reversal of universal order, which is precisely what we call ‘Satanism.’  Guenon adds, “The devil is not only terrible, he is often grotesque…” (pp. 258-262)

Building off of James satanically oriented theories, the renowned psychiatrist Carl Jung (1875-1961) taught that the psyche (soul) consists of two main systems:  a personal unconscious and a deeper more significant layer which he called the collective unconscious with what he identified as archetypes.   Jung held that archetypes were innate, unconscious and universal.

Jung’s system incorporates Darwin’s materialist theory of evolution together with spiritual conceptions of evolution, reincarnation, Gnostic conceptions of Divine One Substance, ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic and various other occult doctrines and psycho-spiritual technologies from around the world.

Jung delved deeply into the occult, practiced necromancy (spiritism) and had daily contact with familiar spirits which he called archetypes because he believed they were manifestations of powers innate in the collective unconscious.  

Much of Jung’s psychological insight was acquired from his familiar spirits, particularly Philemon and Basilides.  Philemon appeared to Jung in humanoid body with wings and the head of a horned bull.    At first Jung thought his spirit familiars (demons) were manifestations of his own psyche, but toward the end of his life he realized with horror that Philemon, Basilides and the many other spirit entities that were a common feature of his life were in fact highly intelligent hostile beings independent of human consciousness.   Speaking of Philemon, Jung said:

Philemon represented a force which was not myself…..I held conversations with him, and he said things which I had not consciously thought.    For I observed clearly that it was he who spoke, not I….Psychologically, Philemon represented superior insight.  He was a mysterious figure to me.   At times he seemed to me quite real, as if he were a living personality.  I went walking up and down the garden with him, and to me he was what the Indians call a guru.”  (Memories, Dreams, Reflections, Carl Jung, p. 183, cited from PsychoHeresy: C.G. Jung’s Legacy to the Church, PsychoHeresy Awareness Ministries)

Jung uses the name Abraxas to describe the impersonal Gnostic pleroma (i.e., impersonal World Spirit, Brahman) out of which mind and then other mental powers emerged.  The word Abraxas is found in esoteric Gnostic texts such as the Holy Book of the Great Invisible Spirit and also in the Greek Magical Papyri.

In 1916 Jung received revelations from his demon familiars during the (automatic) writing of a Gnostic treatise called The Seven Sermons to the Dead.   This text, which describes Abraxas as a “God” higher than the Christian God and devil that combines all opposites into one Being, has been labeled a core text in depth psychology. 

Underlying Jung’s demon-derived Gnostic “transpersonal and depth psychology” is the age-old technology of alchemy and its magical meaning: the ancient Egyptian Hermetic Principle of the correlation of the Divine Substance (Abraxas) with the mind of man, “As above, so below.”   The Hermetic principle is symbolized by the Oroboros---the great chain of being, cosmic tree of life or with Darwin the tree of life.  In modern Luciferian theosophical thought for example, the Oroboros “above” (Abraxas) corresponds to a number of different astral planes and sub-planes comprising the habitations of all supernatural entites,

“….the locale of gods and demons, the void where the thoughtforms dwell, the region inhabited by spirits of the air and other elements, and the various heavens and hells with their angelic and demonic hosts…With the help of ritual procedures, trained persons believe that they can ‘rise on the planes,’ and experience these regions in full awareness.” (Beyond the Body: The Human Double and the Astral Planes, Benjamin Walker, 1974, pp. 117-8) 

As a powerful occult symbol, the Oroboros is the seething power, creative and/or evolutionary impulse or energy of the serpent (devil) figuratively depicted as either a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. 

The serpent’s body is depicted as the Great Chain of Being or the Cosmic Tree of life.   Thus the serpent’s body (Tree of Life) with its’ supposed multiple dimensions and life-giving serpent power not only powers the World Spirit or Abraxas (collective unconscious with its archetypes) but reaches into the psyche, or with James the ‘subconscious’ and with Jung the ‘personal unconscious’, stirring imagination and conferring psychic powers and divinity (you can be as God).   

The Apostle Paul neither speaks of cosmic trees and the gods and demons supposedly dwelling there in their respective heavens and hells nor of the collective unconscious with its archetypes but of fallen angels, the hostile “spirits of wickedness under the heavens” (Eph. 6:12) and their chief, “the prince of the powers of the air.” (Eph. 2:2)   

According to Paul, fallen angels are dispersed in a multitude throughout the whole expanse of sky which is visible to us---the dwelling place for the host of fallen angels cast down from heaven as well as for the whole host of demons.   This means that Jung’s Abraxas (collective unconscious with its archetypes) is actually the expanse of sky under the heavens where fallen angels and demons dwell and which supposedly connects the body of the snake to the mind of man and up which he or she ascends upon the occult Path of Life or Western Magical Way (spiritual evolution) through ritual practice of psycho-spiritual technologies (i.e., Reiki, Alpha Course, Silva Method, channeling, yogic trance, musical ecstasy) to reach divine status and gain psychic powers.

This brings us back to Rene Guenon who explained that the theories of William James (1842-1910) and by extension Carl Jung’s demon derived theory of collective unconscious with its archetypes (basis of Jung’s transpersonal and depth psychology) are examples of unconscious Satanism.   The infernal idea that by “going within” the “subconscious” (James) or “personal unconscious” (Jung) man can become one with the Divine “within” is only one step away from “condoning the practices of spiritism” (contact with spirits) with the further consequences of conferring on evil spirits an “eminently religious character” and becoming oppressed and possessed by them.

Today most psychologists, being heavily influenced by Jung’s demon-derived theories, insist that what they call “paranormal experiences” (i.e., Ouija board communications, voices speaking into one’s mind, terrifying apparitions) are perhaps hallucinations caused by the powers of human imagination or representations of interplay between the left and right hemispheres of the brain and/or the therapeutic release of unconscious repressions.

However, there are increasing numbers of psychologists and psychiatrists who now frankly affirm their belief in evil spirits and their ability to oppress and possess human beings.  In his classic, “Channeling,” Jon Klimo quotes psychiatrist Ralph B. Allison who says,

I have come to believe in the possibility of spirit possession….by demonic spirits from satanic realms, and that’s an area I don’t care to discuss or be a part of…” (Klimo, Channeling, p. 182 from America: The Sorcerer’s New Apprentice, Hunt & McMahon, p. 161)

In his bestselling books, “The Road Less Traveled” and “People of the Lie” M. Scott Peck chronicles his odyssey from vague identification with Buddhist and Islamic mysticism to an intellectual assent of “God” and “Satan.”  Peck refers to two specific cases of exorcism that convinced him of the reality of demon possession.  Declaring that he had “personally met Satan face to face,” Peck explained:

When the demonic finally spoke….an expression appeared on the patient’s face that could be described only as Satanic.  It was an incredibly contemptuous grin of utter hostile malevolence. (In the second case) when the demonic finally revealed itself….it was with a still more ghastly expression.   The patient suddenly resembled a writhing snake….viciously attempting to bite the team members.” (ibid, p. 162)

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12 "Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day..." Ephesian 6:13-14 

The corollary to our age of apostasy is the rapid spread of satanic psycho-spiritual technologies.  Many of America’s largest, most powerful corporations with branches in numerous countries have redefined occult psycho-spiritual technologies as the latest techniques for creative thinking, speed reading and personal success and business performance.    Following on the heels of the mind-altering substances flooding our schools are yoga and channeling.   Children are being taught to “go within” and contact their spirit guides.   Spiritual formation classes (satanic psycho-spiritual technologies redefined as the traditional contemplative prayer that originated with certain Church Fathers, was practiced by St. Augustine, certain Reformers and Catholics) are taught in Hybels and Rick Warrens goatish mega-churches where earthly bread, yoga and musical ecstasy draped by a limp cross are usual offerings.   Then there is the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) that emerged from the Pentecostal and Charismatic movement.  Its’ Super Apostles (2 Cor. 11:13) channel ‘spirits,’ thus they are “enlightened elements” who claim that they have been given authority by the Spirit of “God” to build a kingdom of “God” on earth---a unified and/or pluralistic Global Church.    All of this spiritual rot is quickly filtering into undiscerning contemporary-minded Christian churches. 

The common thread running through all of this is the mind of the same fallen angel who tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden with the words, “Ye shall be as Gods” (Gen. 3:5) but now seduces with the words, “go within.”
