Gnostic Chiliastic Evolution: Satan's Alternative Plan of Salvation

“…so far as human wisdom and resources are concerned, the salvation of sinners is as impossible as raising the dead.  Every conceivable method of expiation and purification has been tried without success.”   Charles Hodge

In the hearts of all humans, bar none, is the possibility of evil, thus sin, said GK Chesterton, is as obvious as potatoes.  This being the case it is completely irrational for the unrepentant to think they can purify themselves and others when it is their evil conscience and will turned toward wickedness---aspects of their souls--- that need cleansing.  And it is because man is evil and depraved, that the 20th century’s purification movements-- Marxist Communism and Nazi Socialism---purified the human gene pool by murdering in excess of 160,000,000 men, women and children of which in Russia, approximately half were Christians.  According to Srdja Trifkovic, persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism, and mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Communist Bolshevism,

“….is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history….Attempts at “killing the soul” started only months after the Revolution of 1917.” Persecution and martyrdom was, “several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed. It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime.” (New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com) 

In his analysis of Marxist Communism, early conservative intellectual Frank Meyer describes it as the state form taken by a materialist pagan,  

"...faith determined to rule the world"   Communism is the "final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries."  (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

Communism is a godless, philosophically pagan form of heretical Jewish elements and heretical Protestant liberalism's upside-down, anti-creation account grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary, apocalyptic proclamation of a coming new order based in belief in the inevitability of evolutionary progress from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, and finally god-man and in the perfectibility of this fallen world. (1)

Chiliasm in Greek means 'thousand years' and is primarily a godless version of the millennial belief expressed in some Christian denominations that there will be a paradise on earth where Christ will reign for a thousand years prior to the final judgment and future eternal state. 

The contemporary chiliastic-evolutionary movement is Technocracy.  The world is being actively transformed by an amoral power elite and their minions according to a very narrow economical/political/social philosophy called Technocracy, and it is impacting every segment of society in every corner of the world:  

"Technocracy is being sponsored and orchestrated by a global elite led by David Rockefeller's and Zbigniew Brzezinski's Trilateral Commission...Originally started in the early 1930's, Technocracy is antithetical to every American institution that made us into the greatest nation on earth.  It eschews property rights, obsoletes capitalism, hates politicians and traditional structures, and promises a lofty utopian dream made possible only if engineers, scientists, and technicians are allowed to run society.  When Aldous Huxley penned Brave New World in 1932, he accurately foresaw this wrenching transformation of society and predicted that the end of it would be a scientific dictatorship unlike anything the world has ever seen." (Preface, Technocracy Rising, Patrick Wood) 

Huxley concluded that Technocracy produces scientific dictatorship designed to scientifically engineer, manipulate, dominate and control the world's wealth and resources and micro-manage every human being in every detail of his life.  Moreover, said Huxley, the scientific and evolutionary system itself would become a god that was worshipped and questioning any aspect of it, such as the validity of evolution as empirical science, or any decision or outcome would be tantamount to blasphemy.  

Like its' 20th century counterparts, Technocracy is the evolutionary chiliastic expression of a coming Golden Age that is the culminating hubris of Promethean god-men who having 'murdered' the Christian God mean to purify and remake man and creation.

 In "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," highly respected political philosopher Eric Voegelin (1901-85) identifies many modern Gnostic movements.  They range from Comte's positivism, to progressivism, Hegelianism, Masonry, Marxist Communism, Nazi Socialism, Schleiermacher's doctrine of faith, Protestant liberalism, and Luciferian Theosophy.  

In an upside-down exegesis typical of Gnosticism, Helena Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy, leading Masonic thinker, and important formulator of chiliastic evolution wrote in her book, "The Secret Doctrine" volume II, 

"...it is but natural...to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind..."  (Theosophy University Press, 1888, p. 243, 513)

Chiliastic-evolutionary systems are modern forms of ancient and very "elitist" pre-Christian and Christian-era Gnosticism which assigns the Holy Triune God to hell and instead worships Lucifer.   Furthermore, it teaches that salvation is attained through the 'elitist' knowledge of Gnostic teachers such as gurus, god-men, certain scientists and Oprah Winfrey, a contemporary spiritual guide possessed of the knowledge of the Gnostic cosmogony. 

With Satan as the spiritual father of an army of unrepentant Gnostic pagans, it is no wonder that modern Gnostic systems have so far produced every dictatorial, genocidal utopian movement of the 20th century and underpin contemporary spiritually pagan, chiliastic New Age and Technocratic globalists hopes and visions.  In his article, "Leftism a Radical Faith," Bruce Riggs notes that much of the political history of the extended 20th century is that of massive extinctions of citizenries by their dictatorial governments: 

"Take the engineered mass starvations, torture chambers, firing squads, and gulags of Lenin and Stalin; Nazi gas chambers; Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge killing fields; the genocides of Mao's "Great Leap Forward,"; and the tyrannical North Korean Sung dynasty, and one will find that over one hundred million people have been slaughtered." (2)  

The authors of the Black Book of Communism point to the godless anti-creation Darwinian "biological and zoological" strain of thinking as the engine of evil that proved itself a most effective means of denying the humanity of millions of victims: 

"This strain of thinking is why so many of the crimes of Communism were crimes against humanity, and how Marxist-Leninist ideology managed to justify these crimes to its followers."  (The Black Book of Communism, Stephanie Courtois, p. 751)

The devilish Gnostic rebel Vladimir Lenin concurs.   Anti-creation Darwinism put an end to the belief that human, animals, and vegetable kinds bear no relation to one another and,

"that they were created by God, and hence immutable."  (Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9) 

Twentieth century Gnostic pagan god-states systematically dehumanized and murdered millions of people in order to create an imagined earthly Eden purified of evil, and this is clearly insane.  Yet this evil religion whose spiritual father is Satan continues today as a God-hating, globally elitist, evolutionary progressive, politico-centric faith entirely disdainful of orthodox Christian and faithful Jewish beliefs and contemptuous of those who subscribe to them.  

In short, devilish Gnostic chiliastic evolution is a Satanic spiritually pagan religion with the look of a religious inquisition that represents the 20th century heretical version of orthodox Christianity.  Unless we grasp this crucial point the nature of this devilishly evil religion will elude us. (3)   

Rise of Satan's Chiliastic Technocratic Utopia

In "False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion," Lee Penn wans that the United Religions Initiative (URI) and the Gaia initiative represents the spiritually pagan religious facet of the coming Technocratic New World Order.  The URI is a United Nations organization that to a significant extent is animated by Satanic Gnostic chiliastic evolution. In preparation for the coming new order, a 'new' pagan spirituality is under construction of which the Earth Charter is set to become its Holy Writ. 

Crafted by a conclave of 'Wise Persons' headed by former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev, its benign sounding verbiage,

"and symbolic nature camouflage its dangerous purpose.  The Charter is intended to become a universally adopted creed that will psychologically prepare the world's children to accept the necessity of world government to save the environment.  It is also an outrageous attempt to indoctrinate your children in the UN's New Age paganism." (The New World Religion, William F. Jasper, New American, 2002)  

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

Penn notes that evolution is absolutely central to the ambitions of Technocratic global elites.  Thus after more than eighty years of nearly unopposed evolutionary evangelization in schools, seminaries, pulpits, media, academia and elsewhere global elite god-men like Jeremy Rifkin are finally free to declare that evolution is a living "Mind" enlarging its domain as it evolves up and through the "chain of species."  Moreover, now that the evolution god "Mind" reigns supreme, global elitists no longer feel like guests in someone else's home and therefore obliged to make their behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules: 

  "It is our creation now. We make the rules (and) establish the parameters of reality.  We create the world (and) no longer have to justify our behavior...We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever." (Algeny, Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

Here we see that in the completely delusional, entirely depraved (Jer. 51: 17-18), and ultimately demonically orchestrated global elite dream-scape it is not the personal Triune God who has created and sustains the world.  No, it is each Gnostic man-god who creates and sustains his own world and meaning in every moment out of his own divine consciousness.  In other words, since according to the devil the substance of the Holy Creator God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos, including the mind of man, then by occult magic rituals such as transcendental meditation and brain-altering drugs, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls the cosmos because he controls "Mind."  The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man. 

Given the likelihood that an ancient evil intelligence has crawled inside Rifkin and other Technocratic god-men the fact that New Age spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through mediums such as Blavatsky, Bailey, Benjamin Crème, Robert Muller, Neale Donald Walsh and Barbara Marx Hubbard, to name but a few, should come as no surprise.  Penn observes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a Gnostic progressive vision of apocalyptic spiritualized totalitarianism that includes: 

1. Praise for Lucifer as the light-bearer and giver of wisdom

2. Highly evolved humans are gods.

3. Advocacy for extreme population control

4. Concentrated hate directed at faithful Judaism, orthodox evangelical Protestantism, and Roman Catholicism

5. Forecasting a pending, and for them, desirable selection of mankind in which the progressives enter the New Age millennium and reactionaries face extinction.  For "New Age Apostles of 'progressive' Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution." (Penn, p. 7)  

Speaking through Barbara Marx Hubbard, her spirit guide 'Christ' prophesied in 1995 that the Rider of the Pale Horse will use the 'sword' as one of his means to "kill those who choose to remain self-centered."  (ibid, Penn, p. 322) 

The meaning of 'self-centered' is briefly defined in the Global Biodiversity Assessment, a document mandated by the U.N. sponsored Convention on Biological Diversity. This document explicitly refers to Christianity as a faith that, rather than making God and humans one with nature, has instead set God and humans "apart from nature," a process in which nature has "lost its sacred qualities."  The document states: 

"Conversion to Christianity has....meant an abandonment of an affinity with the natural world." (Al Gore, The United Nations and the Cult of Gaia, Cliff Kincaid, americasurvival.org, 1999)  

In other words, because orthodox Christianity teaches that there is an unbridgeable gulf between the Triune God and His creation that is only breached by Jesus Christ then idolaters like Jeremy Rifkin do not and cannot share the substance of the Triune God as pantheism teaches.  According to Christianity man is radically different from the Lord and atonement, purification and mediation is achieved only through Jesus Christ, Who rose from the dead.  This means that neither Rifkin nor any other Technocratic global elitist is god but rather an evil idolater speeding along the broad, smooth highway to hell.  

All modern Gnostic pagan movements share the same chiliastic goal: a coming "new pantheist order" and "new pagan god-man" completely purified of all evil and existing in oneness with the evolutionary god force.  This means extermination of all faithful Christians and Jews and other dissenters who refuse to become one with the god of forces.  

Purification also extends to Biblical moral standards, sexual ethics, traditional marriage and traditions derived therefrom since they have been by-passed by the ongoing process of evolution.  These will be changed just as all distinctions between nonlife forms, life forms and gender will be blurred in the idea of evolution from molecule to ape to man and woman to transgender to androgynous god-man.  In the same way, all distinctions between good and evil, nations and religions will be merged in the chiliastic vision of worldly purification. 

In conclusion, Gnostic chiliastic evolution is the anti-gospel of Satan, thus the antithesis of the glorious Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ.  So powerful is the stranglehold of Satan's anti-gospel on millions of darkened Western minds that it has imaginatively inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism, meaning that the millions of people whose minds are in bondage to Satan and his legions can no longer think right-side up.  With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by the evolution god it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but are instead gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.  

For all Westerners who are perhaps uncomfortable with, offended by, or outright hostile toward the personal Holy Triune God and His plan of salvation Satan's anti-gospel provides them a chiliastic plan of purification and a substitute deity---evolution---the animated god force of the cosmos which men believe they can control and direct.  Through scientifically controlled and directed evolution they imagine they are destined to realize unimaginable spiritual advances.

The Dark God of Gnostic Progressive Spirituality

We are at the dawn of a new consciousness, a radically fresh approach to our life…Perhaps the best name for this new segment of historical experience is the Interspiritual Age.” Wayne Teasdale, “The Mystic Heart”

At the outbreak of the modern era, the (gnostic) system of inverse biblical exegesis was once again activated.”  Ioan Couliano, “The Tree of Gnosis”

The Gnostic system of inverse exegesis begins with evolution, which has persuaded people,

 “...to think of everything in nature as the fruit of a gradual growth rather than an original creation.”  Such inverse thinking means it is now impossible for educated Westerners to conceive of Biblical revelation because “in an evolving world, perfection obviously lay, not in the past, but in the future.”  (Franklin Baumer, “The Making of the New Spirituality, James Herrick, p. 150)

Western and American culture has been hijacked by an evolutionary spiritual ideology that Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthxchange, calls neo-Gnostic Paganism. In the foreword to the book ‘On Global Wizardry,’ John Frame describes it as an historical and worldwide movement of enormous, cultural power that for centuries has sought to dominate our world. (p. 10)

Darwin’s idea is taken by modern Gnostics as final proof that the universe is governed, not by the divine will of Jehovah Who created humans out of dust, 

“…but by a virtually divine force Darwin called natural selection.  Having produced human consciousness, evolution may now…be brought directly under the control of its own product, Humanity, the accomplishment of natural selection…”  (James Herrick, p. 150)

Grounded in an inverse evolutionary cosmogony Progressive Spirituality is vehemently anti-Revealed Word of God, the Genesis creation account ex nihilo which speaks of a fall by man from a good creation, and Jesus Christ God Incarnate, the Way, the Truth, and the Life who, in the minds of hostile progressive Gnostics, intolerantly declared that “No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)   

 Progressive Spirituality holds that each world religion of nature shares a single universal truth---that the divine energy (i.e., the Force, evolution, prana, chi) or consciousness (i.e., Solar Logos, Mind of the Universe) has manifested itself through many deities in different places and at different times.  Thus no one deity can express the totality of the divine energy or consciousness.  This is polytheism.  

Progressive Spirituality has eleven other essential beliefs:

1. The divine energy or consciousness is present everywhere within nature and man and is therefore the divine essence or spark in the minds of humans.  This means that every person is a potential god because they are aspects of the evolving divine consciousness.  This is idolatry.

2.  The divine energy is represented by both female and male energies.  These two major aspects of the divine are the goddess and god, although the divine, being beyond limitations of gender, is androgynous (transgender).

3. Animism: nature is infused with evolving divine spirit, consciousness, or life force and is thus alive with divine energy or soul, meaning Gaia (earth) is alive.

4. Magic and/or occult science: the principle instrument of initiates, adepts, and god-men employed to acquire hidden knowledge (gnosis).

5. Spiritual evolution: evolutionary progress over time resulting in apotheosis.

6.  Subjectivism: there is no objective truth and reality; whatever one wishes to be true and real is subjectively true and real for that person. (1)

7. History as a record of events in space and time has no particular significance.

8. Religious pluralism rooted in mystical experience.  This means that the only universal religious experience is the mystical experience. 

9.  Forecasting a pending, and for them a highly desirable natural selection of mankind in which progressive practitioners of Gnostic Spirituality enter the New Age millennium and the reactionaries face extinction. For the Apostles of progressive Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution.  (False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion, Lee Penn, p. 7)

10: Socialism as the new evangelism.

11. Praise for Lucifer as the light-bearer, angel of evolution, and giver of wisdom (gnosis)

Progressive Spirituality is a syncretic stew consisting of elements of Mystery Religion Babylon, occult Kabbalah, Egyptian Hermetic magic, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnostic paganism, Shamanism, Astrology, African pagan spirituality, Chinese spirituality, the spirituality of Quantum Mechanics, Deep Ecology and global change, Hinduism, Buddhism, Luciferian Theosophy, Wicca, evolutionary Christianity and new contemplative (meditation) techniques and other occult ways of contacting the spirit realm. (2)   Uniting all of these movements is a determined commitment to evolution, magic science, subjectivism and tolerance that paves the way for a one world religion. John Frame comments:

"These movements are parallel to one another, even congruent.  So they form a single movement in effect.  They work together, drawing on one another for support and inspiration, affirming one another, while they unite in opposing biblical Christianity. The resulting movement is, then, a work of Satan, seeking to confront Christianity head-on.”  (p. 10)

In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called the New Age or Progressive Spirituality Bible, Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) concurs and enthusiastically reports that a great, shuddering irrevocable shift in consciousness is overtaking Westerners,

"It is a new mind, a turnabout in consciousness in critical numbers of individuals, a network powerful enough to bring about radical change in our culture.   This network....has alreadyenlisted the minds, hearts and resources of some of our most advanced thinkers, including Nobel laureate scientists, philosophers, statesmen, celebrities....who are working to create a different kind of society...The technologies for expanding and transforming personal consciousness, once the secret of an elite, are now generating massive change in every cultural institution---medicine, politics, business, education, religion and the family."   (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt & McMahon, p. 34)

Ferguson lists a number of consciousness altering techniques:

".....Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, Focusing, Centering, Guided Imagery, Visualization, Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Biofeedback, Dianetics, Silva Mind Control..."  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Dave Hunt, Thomas McMahon, p. 43)

The altered state of consciousness in which a man supposedly enters into communion with the "Mind of the Universe" with the help of spirit guides is called "opening of the senses" in Scripture:

"Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way with his drawn sword in his hand."  (Numbers 22:31, also see 2 Kings 6:17; Luke 24:16-31)

Hypnotic trance-states are linked to ancient pagan religious practices and eastern mystical experiences that are essential to such practices as out-of-body experiences, astral projection, and Yoga. Historically, hypnosis has been an integral part of world pagan religious practices and pantheist systems stretching back to the mother of all such systems: Babylon.  

In ’Recognitions’ church father Clement records an evil deed committed by the Gnostic pagan magician Simon (Acts 8: 9-24) that bears a striking resemblance to the effects of modern altered state of consciousness techniques resulting in out-of-body-experiences.   Clement reports that Simon committed murder by inducing a child to experience an out of body situation.  By way of mesmerizing, abominable incantations,

"...he separated the soul of a child from its own body that it might become his assistant for the production of whatever apparition he might require.  And he drew a likeness of the boy, and keeps it set up in the inner chamber where he sleeps, affirming that he...formed him of air by transformations such as the gods cause..." (Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember, p. 181)

In other words, by way of a consciousness altering technique, Simon drew out the spirit of the boy,

"...and then omitted to recall it, so that the spirit had finally separated from the body; and that he had done this for the purpose of procuring a (spirit) familiar....Simon....denied the murder of the boy by asserting that he had merely resolved a spirit-form which he had himself produced." (Earth's Earliest Ages, p. 182)

During trance states demons can interfere with and even possess the passive or empty mind, making occult meditation techniques open doorways into the realm of evil spirits and dangerous demonic deceptions.

Similarly, hallucinogenic drugs also assist users to experience an altered state of consciousness. There are as well certain types of music, such as electronic trance and heavy metal that enhance and in many cases produce in the mind and spirit of the listener an altered state, hence spiritual transformation. In secularized Westerners and unwary Christians alike, altered states eventually end in an altered world view.

As it was in the days of Noah

As Ferguson admits, many of the hypnotic-technologies being taught over and across our culture were once the private domain of ancient magicians and sorcerers.   In fact, as Constance Cumbey reveals in her thoroughly researched book, "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow," many Progressive Spirituality historians claim their traditions originated in pre-flood Atlantis (during the time of Noah) and afterward were preserved in the ancient land of Babylon and surrounding plains of Shinar, 

"...and from there disseminated throughout the earth, including Taoist doctrines of China, Mayan-Aztec teachings of Mexico and Central/South America; Great Spirit teachings of the American Indians, Hindu/Buddhist teachings of Asia, etc." (ibid, pp. 250-251) 

Church Father Clement concurs.  In the antediluvian world, fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man:

After the flood Ham the son of Noah unhappily discovered this and taught it to his sons.  This became ingrained into the Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians.  Ham died shortly after the fall of the Tower of Babel.  Nimrod, called Ninus by the Greeks, was handed this knowledge and by it caused men to go away from the worship of God and go into diverse and erratic superstitions and they began to be governed by the signs in the stars and motions of the planets." (Recognitions of Clement 4.26-29)

The Tower of Babel was Babylon's founding edifice and spiritual center, said Brooks Alexander, research director for Spiritual Counterfeits Project.  Brooks describes the Tower as an astral temple or gate-way into the dimension of spirits and the Divine Energy.  It therefore represented the structure of the evolving universe of energy and matter:

"As the 'cosmic mountain' it tied heaven and earth together.  It was the all-inclusive image of the totality of the universe." (The Big Lie, SCP Journal 29:2-29:3, 2005, Tal Brooke, p. 11)

The magical meaning of the Tower is the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle of the universe or macrocosm's correlation with the microcosm, "as above, so below" symbolized by the Ouroboros – the serpent-powered cosmic tree of life represented by a snake biting its tail.  "Below" corresponds to earth, initiate (aspiring god man), and Tower, and 'above' to a number of different astral planes and sub-planes comprising the void--- the locale of gods and demons, 

" 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 to our own, the serpent-energized Ouroboros with its astral planes and sub-planes has been well-known around the world in its' many esoteric (occult secret) traditions.

Brooks adds that in the ritual act of ascending the astral altar,

"…. the priests acted out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos.  The Babylonian monarch was the focus of the occult power channeled through the activities of the priesthood.  He was regarded as a divine being, a god-man."  (ibid, The Big Lie, p. 10)    

With the help of spirit guides (fallen angels and demons), psycho-technologies and other occult rituals, initiates believed they could spiritually progress or evolve up the astral planes to visit the realm of the gods and become the mouth-pieces for the gods and goddesses.  

According to occult lore, at the final level of initiation spirit entities (demons) fully possess the body of the monarch to replace his spirit. This means that the spirit of the monarch is no longer in residence as another spirit totally possesses and animates the monarch's body.  This is why the monarch thereafter was regarded as a divine being, a god-man.

Upon possession of the monarch's body, the spirit exudes a powerful mesmerizing influence that draws much of the community into its sphere of influence and domination resulting in communal possession.  Possession takes two forms, communal and individual.  Communal or collective possession is,

"...strongly institutionalized, and ritualistically induced, but peripheral possession is more normally individual and spontaneous." (Demonic Possession: A Medical, Historical, Anthropological, and Theological Symposium, John Warwick Montgomery (ed.), Bethany, 1976)

Possession and Other Dangers of Mind-Altering Techniques

According to a 1987 New York Times article, psychologists who studied mind-altering techniques said that while participants are in this altered state group-leaders are able to implant new ideas and alter thinking processes, raising fears of mind control.  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt, McMahon)

This charge is so grave and frightening that former University of Wisconsin psychology faculty member Edwin Morse warns that graduates of new Spirituality (New Age) courses being required for employees of many businesses are often "psychologically scarred."  Now in private practice and specializing in helping such people, Dr. Morse declares:

"These (mind-altering) groups are using hypnotic procedures and people are not being told about it." (ibid, America: the Sorcerers New Apprentice, p. 42)

Even school children are being taught the ancient art of centering, a psycho-technique that opens up their minds to the influence of demons.  In his book, "America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom," Allen Quist warns:

"New Age religion is now aggressively being taught in our nation's public schools." A model curriculum has been developed that "is clearly centered on pantheism." "Much of what passes for environmental education and multiculturalism is really indoctrination in pantheistic/New Age theology. The ACLU and other similar organizations have no objections to (pantheistic indoctrination). It is only Christianity that these organizations object to." (p. 51) 

Tom DeWeese, President of the American Policy Center, has also been following the explosive growth of Gnostic Progressive Spirituality. In a work entitled, "Teachers, Preachers and Greens: The Unholy Alliance to Transform America," DeWeese reveals the existence of a well-funded yet covert effort to alter the consciousness of American society through an aggressive assault on schools and churches.  He reveals that the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City is one of the initiating centers of the assault and the home to the enormously influential occult spiritual Gaia Institute and Temple of Understanding — a politically influential U.N. Non-Governmental Organization. (federalobserver.com)

So-called 'extraterrestrials' are also at work.   In "Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection," Gary Bates reports that the abduction phenomenon is occurring all over the world, including Third World countries.   After considerable research, Bates connects psycho-techniques utilized by ‘ETs” to hypnosis.  So-called 'aliens' use hypnotic methods to enter into the subconscious mind to plant subliminal messages and alter thought processes to embrace the concept of naturalistic evolution which negates the Genesis account. (Bates, p. 262)

World-renowned UFOlogist and archaeologist Dr. Clifford Wilson is but one of many researchers who have pointed out how an entity calling itself "Ashtar" keeps popping up in UFO accounts.   Along with Semjase (Samlazaz, Semjaza), who has been posing as a modern space-brother, Ashtar keeps appearing in UFO literature as well as ancient texts.  John Keel, one of the world's most published and highly respected UFOlogists also noted this.  Highlighting the element of deception he wrote:

"Thousands of mediums, psychics, and UFO contactees have been receiving mountains of messages from "Ashtar" in recent years.... Ashtar is not a new arrival.    Variations of this name, such as Astaroth, Asher, Asharoth, etc. appear in demonological literature throughout history, both in the Orient and Occident.   Mr. Ashtar had been around a very long time, posing as assorted gods and demons and now, in the modern phase, as another glorious spaceman."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 290)

In ancient Babylon, Ashtoreth (Inanna, Ashtar, Ishtar of the Acadians, Istar, Semiramis, Milcom, Cybele, Astarte, Isis, Demeter, Aphrodite; 1 Kings 11:5, 33; 2 Kings 23:13) was the androgynous consort of Anu, the supreme sky god.  

According to Dr. Peter Jones, androgynous (transgender/bi-sexual) priests were associated with the worship of the goddess Istar from the Sumerian age (1800 BC). Their condition was due to their devotion to Istar,

“... who herself had ‘transformed their masculinity into femininity.'”  (Androgyny: The Pagan Sexual Ideal, Dr. Jones, truthxchange)    

Who are Semjaza and Astar/Ishtar?

According to ANE Scholar Dr. Michael Heiser, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University, Semjaza, the androgynous Ashtar and all other pagan gods are fallen, wicked Watchers, serpentine Seraphim,

"There are "good" serpentine beings (seraphim) who guard God's throne (so Isaiah 6's seraphim), and there are fallen, wicked serpentine beings (seraphim) who rebelled against the Most High at various times, and who became the pagan gods of the other nations."   (Michael Heiser, Serpentine/Reptilian Divine Beings in the Hebrew Bible: A Preliminary Investigation," cited by Bryan Godawa, "Enoch Primordial," p. 363)

Globalized Gnostic Progressive Spirituality

The Book of Genesis informs us that before the great flood the antediluvian world was in a frenzy of wickedness, no doubt aided and abetted by the Watchers.   God's wrath fell upon that world while a remnant was preserved in the ark.   But scarcely had the waters receded when Ham rediscovered and resurrected the teachings of the Watchers from the antediluvian world.  Utilizing these teachings, Nimrod turned the people away from the worship of God and revived the necessary elements of Mystery Religion Atlantis to establish his own post-flood version. 

While Mystery Religion Babylon is the post-flood root of all mystery religions, in its' final version, communal and individual possession will become a global phenomenon as untold millions of people ritualistically act out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos:

".....I can be saved only by becoming one with the universe. Thereby, too, my deepest 'pantheist' aspirations. It was especially the image of God which Teilhard saw in need of urgent redefinition. Modern man has not yet found the God he can adore, A God commensurate to the newly discovered dimensions of the universe." (Towards a New Mysticism, Teilhard de Chardin and Eastern Religions, Ursula King, p. 172

Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the ‘divine,’ it’s transcendence into ever higher forms of life.  Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine.  This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity.  Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age...” (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Robert Muller, 1923-2010, U.N. Assistant Secretary General known as the philosopher of the U.N. and father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)

The Dark God of Progressive Spirituality

Progressive spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through mediums such as Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Robert Muller, Barbara Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Of these it is Blavatsky who reveals the identity of the dark god.   

Blavatsky founded the Theosophical Society to promote occult doctrine, religious philosophy and wisdom tradition.  Theosophy holds that all nature religions are attempts by the Occult Brotherhood (fallen angels) to help humanity in evolving to greater perfection, and that eachnature religion therefore has a portion of the truth.  These teachings, which Blavatsky called ‘The Ageless Wisdom,’ had previously only been available to Secret Societies from the time of Babylon and Atlantis, but she obtained them from the Brotherhood during her travels to Egypt and India. 

In her book, ‘The Secret Doctrine,’ Blavatsky reveals the name of the dark god:

"Satan and his rebellious host will thus prove to have become the direct Saviours and Creators of divine man . . . It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God.  Satan (or Lucifer) represents the Centrifugal Energy of the Universe, this ever-living symbol of self-sacrifice for the intellectual independence of humanity.”   

In volume II of “The Secret Doctrine” she said:

"….it is but natural…to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was the first to whisper: “in the day ye eat thereof, ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil” – can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour….”  

  “And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the “Lord of Phosphorus” (brimstone was a theological improvement), and Lucifer, or “Light Bearer,” is in us: It is our Mind – our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism. Without this principle… we would be surely no better than animals” (Theosophical University Press, 1888, p. 243)

In this light it becomes clear why leading Gnostic initiates and adepts speak of the necessity of the Luciferian initiation for all who wish to enter the coming utopian millennium.

Revelation reports that at some point the whole world will become drunk on the wine of Babylon, its' deluded celebrants convinced of their own deity when in reality they've received the mark of Satan.   

The clearest answer to the apocalyptic atmosphere of our time is found in the Bible.  We are living in the Last Days.  History is winding down and Satan is mobilizing his forces for a final all-out assault--- which we are already experiencing (1 Tim. 4:1 and 2; Tim. 3:1-4) The demonic realm is brazenly interacting with our own realm, and it is in this light that we can understand the growing epidemic of occultism, imbecility, pathological lying, violence, hatred, death-wishing, and other evils overtaking our society.

We are living in the days of a demonic nature, said Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987).  For over fifty years Dr. Koch's name has been synonymous with authoritative and biblical insights and help for all who desire to understand or escape from the mesmerizing influence of the occult and demonic world.  According to Koch, civilization is marching toward its own destruction and if we fail therefore to take our stand at the foot of the cross,

"... fail to build our house upon the Rock, (we will) be swept away by the turmoil of the End-times."  (Demonology Past and Present, Koch, p. 37)

Yoga's Terrifying Demonic Reality

In “The Yoga of Jesus: Understanding the Hidden Teachings of the Gospels,” made available by Self-Realization Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952) reveals the hidden yoga of the Gospels and confirms that Jesus, like the ancient sages and masters of the East, not only knew yoga but taught this sacred royal science of God-realization to his closest disciples.

Hailed as "the father of Yoga in the West", Paramahansa Yogananda is regarded as one of the great spiritual figures of our time. Born in northern India, he came to the United States in 1920, where for more than 30 years he taught the ancient science of Kriya Yoga meditation and the art of balanced spiritual living. Yogananda emphasized the underlying unity of the world’s great religions, including Christianity,  and taught universally applicable methods for attaining direct personal experience of God within. He founded Self-Realization Fellowship to disseminate his writings and teachings worldwide and through his best-selling classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, and his numerous other books, he has introduced millions throughout America and the world to the spiritual principles of yoga meditation and the universal truths underlying all world religions.

The Second Coming of Christ continues the legacy of the Sanatana Dharma—the perennial philosophy that proclaims the bliss of God as the overarching goal of all religious practice. This consummation is available to one and all, and the apparent exclusivity of Christ’s claim, “No man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6), becomes a promise to all humanity, irrespective of creed. (1) 

Yogananda quotes his own guru, Swami Sri Yukteswar:

"Jesus meant, never that he was the sole Son of God, but that no man can attain the unqualified Absolute, the transcendent Father beyond creation, until he has first manifested the “Son” or activating Christ Consciousness within creation. Jesus, who had achieved entire oneness with that Christ Consciousness, identified himself with it inasmuch as his own ego had long since been dissolved." (p. 1373)

Yogananda elaborates: 

"The Christ Consciousness present in Jesus, and in all vibratory creation and phenomena, is the noumenon, “truth,” the primary substance and essence of life of everything in creation. No human being who is a part of vibratory creation can take his consciousness to Cosmic Consciousness, “the Father”—which lies beyond vibratory creation and the immanent Christ Consciousness—without first experiencing the Christ-imbued Cosmic Vibration, or Holy Ghost, that manifests vibratory creation, then passing through the God-reflection of Christ Consciousness. In other words, to “come unto the Father” every human consciousness has to expand and attain realization of the Cosmic Vibration first, and then know Christ Consciousness, in order to reach Cosmic Consciousness."(pp. 1373–74)  

 Today millions of Americans practice forms of Eastern meditation and yoga to achieve oneness with the Christ Consciousness and be released from the bondage of opposites,

"...and to succeed in joining the dark and light sides of existence."  Dr. Peter Jones, Star Wars and the Ancient Religion

In "One or Two?" Dr. 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)

It is well documented that perversions, murder, demonic possession and other evils, including human sacrifice, occur in Western witchcraft, Satanism and Eastern mysticism (e.g., tantric yoga) as well as pagan and pantheist occult religion in general. In his "Occultism, Witchcraft and Cultural Fashions," the noted cultural anthropologist Mircea Eliade of the University of Chicago refers to the interconnections between European witchcraft and Hindu Tantric yoga....the royal path to raising Kundalini Serpent Power.  Eliade argues that "even a rapid perusal of the Hindu and Tibetan documents" reveals the connection:

"As a matter of fact, all the features associated with European witches are – with the exception of Satan and the Sabbath – claimed also by Indo-Tibetan yogis and magicians. They too are supposed to fly through the air, render themselves invisible, kill at a distance, master demons and ghosts, and so on. Moreover, some of
(them) boast that they break all the religious taboos and social rules; that they practice human sacrifice, cannibalism, and all manner of orgies, including incestuous intercourse, and that they eat excrement, nauseating animals, and devour human corpses. In other words, they proudly claim all the crimes and horrible ceremonies cited ad nauseum in the western European witch trials." (Psychic Forces, Chapter 22, "The Occult History of Parapsychology," Clifford Wilson and John Weldon, pp. 341-49)

Kundalini is the key term in Pandit Gopi Krishna’s  (1903-1984) theory of evolution. Coming from ancient Sanskrit, it means “coiled up” like a snake or spring, and implies latent serpent power or potential to expand. Gopi Krishna translates it as “lat­ent power-reservoir of energy” or “psychosomatic power center.” Kundalini, he claims, 

“...is the fundamental bioenergy of life, stored primarily in the sex organs but present throughout the entire body. This potent psychic radiation is normally associated with the genitals for simple continuance of the species by providing a sex drive. This is what Freud called libido (although the Freudian conception is strictly psychological and lacks the energy tie-in to physics and biology which Gopi Krishna is pointing out).”  (Kundalini: Universal Ladder of Awakening, Atlantis Rising Magazine, Jan/Feb 2010)

The very popular Tantra Kundalini yoga is based on the occultic chakra system which teaches that a universal evolutionary energy (Kundalini Shakti, the Supreme Power; serpent power) coiled at the base of the spine flows through human beings and through all of creation, uniting everything above and everything below, thus acknowledging divinity in all things and all people. Through strenuous yoga and other occult techniques outlined in ancient and modern texts, Kundalini Shakti uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body. During so-called kundalini arousal, which may last for months or even years, protracted insanity and/or demonization must be endured. In the words of power yogi Muktananda:

"I was assailed by all sorts of perverse and defiling emotions....my breathing (became) disturbed...my abdomen would swell with air...my mind was sick with fear (my) thoughts became confused, meaningless. My limbs and body got hotter and hotter....Then I felt a searing pain...I wanted to run away, but my legs were locked tight in the lotus posture.....Then...a moonlike sphere...came floating in (it) struck against my eyes and...passed inside me...I was terrified (but) still locked in the lotus posture (with) my head forced down and glued to the ground....I started to make a sound like a camel, which alternated with the roaring of a tiger (I went) completely insane (and jumped and hopped) like a frog (while) my limbs (shook) violently. (Later) I learned that this was a Hatha Yoga process effected by the Goddess Kundalini in order for Her to move up through the spinal column into the sahasrana (upper psychic center.)" (Play of Consciousness, Swami Muktananda, pp. 75-81, 84-85, 88-89)

With continued practice, surrender, and preparation, one day the kundalini current (possessing demon) will reach full voltage and there will no longer be anyone home but an unholy spirit residing in an empty shell of a body:

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity. The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)." Finally it happened – explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated. Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels." "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..." (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45)

Yoga is an occult or mystical technique that originated in the Orient. Eastern mysticism, Wicca, contemporary Luciferian Theosophy, and occult spiritual New Age have in common, spiritistic or animistic backgrounds resulting in the development of psychic powers and contact with demons, or familiar spirits.  

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987) was a noted German theologian, minister and evangelist who pastored, counseled, and delivered thousands of people suffering from the occult, including the demonically oppressed. In his book, "Occult ABC: Exposing Occult Practices and Ideologies," he wrote that missionaries and Christian researchers:

" ....who have lived in Asia for many years claim that between 95 and 98 percent of the nonChristian population have psychic powers (which) vary considerably in strength, depending on the extent to which the person has been involved with the occult practices of Asiatic religions." (p. 9)

Behind magic, mysticism and the occult, the yoga system of initiation is present. The first stage of yoga has the aim of helping the student to "gain control of his consciousness and his body," said Koch, who goes on to enumerate the mental and physical exercises:

"...meditation, autogenic training, concentration, and "koan," a litany involving the continuous repetion of a mantra (secret word). The physical exercises include breathing exercises and various bodily postures like the lotus position, the cobra position, and the headstand."

The first stage of yoga is psychosomatic, meaning it produces unity of body and mind. The second stage builds off of the first in order to produce control of the unconscious mind:

"When a person has mastered the second stage, he can control and guide, for instance, his visceral nerves. I have met masters of the second stage who can perform astonishing feats." (p. 258)

The third stage of initiation is concerned with the mastery of natural powers:

"It is the specialty of Tibetan yogis to combine magic and yoga. (A) master of this art, the adept (apprentice) has to be able to produce energy in the form of heat in a natural object, such as melting ice by means of mental concentration." (Koch, p. 259)

At the fourth stage of initiation, the yogi gains mastery of the dark arts and new powers including telepathy, presentiments, second sight and all the powers of a supernatural order which are indispensable for occult activities. (Koch, p. 260)

Former guru Rabindranath R. Maharaj, now a committed follower of Jesus Christ, describes his former occult rituals and their terrifying consequences:

"Nothing was more important than our daily transcendental meditation, the heart of Yoga..... 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)

Dr. Koch strongly advises Christians to steer clear of yoga:

"There are many Christians who believe that it is possible to participate in (the) first stage of yoga without harm. It is merely a matter of relaxation exercises (they say). If only this were true! Counseling experience tells otherwise. This technique of relaxation and these "emptying exercises" (of the mind) lead to the inflowing of another spirit---other spirits. The students of yoga do not notice it." (pp. 257-258)

Yoga: Refined Royal Science of Babylon 

Neo-paganism, witchcraft, and Eastern systems are of the world view of monism which teaches that all that exists is one self-evolved, self-sufficient substance and/or energy field which may be divine spirit or impersonal mind (pantheism) or spiritless physical substance (materialism).

Monism is held in common by all of the world’s ancient mystery religions underlying modern Secular Humanism (evolutionary secular humanism) and occult New Age spirituality, a kind of Cosmic Humanism firmly anchored in Hinduism and Buddhism.  

All of the ancient mysteries were monistic.  Monism originated in the city of Babylon in Mesopotamia and migrated from there to every corner of the world. Hinduism is an offshoot of the original Babylonian monism (via the Aryans of ancient Persia) and Buddhism is an offshoot of Hinduism:

All of the Eastern religions of today are ultimately traceable to ancient Babylon, where the post-Flood rebellion against God began.”  (The New World Religion, Gary Kah, p. 246)

The heart of ancient mystery traditions is the Great Lie of Genesis 3.  Emanating from the heart are four central presuppositions:

1. Monism:  There is no Creator-creature distinction, or distinctions between good and evil, male and female, past and present, immutability and change. Nor is there eternal separation of saved and lost. Thus all men are gods in process of evolution.  From this it follows that all separations (i.e., male from female, light from dark) and oppositions such as those presented by good and evil are illusory manifestations of the one divine substance (occult reality).  All objects (planets, rivers, trees) and individuals are parts or aspects of the all-inclusive divine one-substance:

The Hindus call it atom-paramatma, Brahmin, and sat-chit-ananda (‘being-consciousness bliss’)   (The Mystery of Death, Tal Brooke, p 97)

2. Man is inwardly divine, one with God in essence. Since there is only one substance or energy field and men are emanations of it, then mans own consciousness provides the specific connecting link.  In experiencing this reality via meditation, yoga, and other occult techniques, man experiences oneness with the divine.  All forms of occult philosophy are united around the central belief that the inner or real self of man is God:

This is the fundamental form of the primary lie spoken of in Genesis. ‘You will be like God,’ Gen. 3:5, RSV (ibid)

3.  Life’s purpose is to realize the divine within. The path is usually the way of supreme illumination or gnosis (supreme knowledge) reached by spiritual and psychic techniques practiced by craft adepts and adepts of raja or kundalini yoga:

The idea is that the person is a cosmic amnesiac who has forgotten his true divine identity, but the right system will remind him that he is really God after all.  The closer he is to becoming God, the more conscious he becomes.” (ibid, p. 98)

4.  Self-realization leads to psycho-spiritual power.  As an initiate of the craft (witchcraft) or yoga advances upon the path of enlightenment or gnosis he becomes increasingly attuned with the divine ‘one’ and its relationship to the material world of reality, ‘creation.’  Thus as man-god he allegedly becomes master and creator of his own reality.  And since reality is supposedly composed of consciousness, the adept learns to control reality by controlling consciousness.  Therefore, since matter is created or dematerialized with the ease of a divine conjurer the universe is the creation of the man-god:

“It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever.” (Algeny, Jeremy Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

Yoga does not liberate, it enslaves, it binds. It does not enlighten but rather causes confusion. It does not prepare the way for Jesus Christ but rather makes people immune to redemption through Christ, for it does not open the door for the Holy Spirit but for unholy spirits.

In post-Christian America, occult spirituality is all the rage, thus it comes as no surprise that yoga courses are being conducted in churches and schools all over southern California, New York, and elsewhere. Course descriptions read:

"Age and developmentally appropriate yoga poses, breathing exercises, chanting, meditation, and relaxation techniques offer a child-friendly relationship to the physical and philosophical traditions of yoga." (The Emperor's New Yoga Pants, Mary Eady, truthexchange, Dec. 1, 2011) 

The almost 2000 year old Book of Revelation summarized and distilled over 1500 years of biblical prophecy in its far-reaching vision of the final world order, a planetary empire involving religious, economic, political, and military forces under an occult spiritual regime of absolute oppression and delusion known as Mystery Babylon.

Under the guise of science, evolution, and technology, the already emerging world order offers itself to us as Hermetic wisdom teachings whose origins are ancient Babylonia, Egypt, and according to New Age historians, pre-flood Atlantis.  As it was in the days of Noah, the Babylonians and Egyptians were earmarked by their embrace of the Great Lie and by their sorcery, initiations (i.e., four stages of yoga), secret words (mantras), psychic powers, hedonism and androgyny.

God the Father Almighty does not deny the reality of psychic powers but we learn that the true source of occult powers is the Great Red Dragon, Satan. Yahweh abhorred these practices and warned His people against them in Isaiah 8:19, Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and Leviticus 19:31.

Respected English archeologist and historian Alexander Hislop traced Babylon's Mystery Religion, first to Egypt and then to India. He said:

"The Babylonians...worshipped a goddess mother and son (Semiramis and Tammuz). From Babylon, this worship...spread to the ends of the earth. In Egypt, the mother and child were worshipped (as) Isis and Osiris. In India, even to this day, as Isi (or Parvati) and Ishwara....(Thus the) Hindu mythology is admitted to be essentially Babylonian." (The Great Lie, Tal Brooke, SCP Journal 29:2-29:3, p. 11)

The mystery religion of Babylon is the mother of all post-flood mystery religions (i.e., Eastern mysticism, Theosophy, esoteric Free Masonry), initiations (stages of yoga) and occult evolutionary science. It promises the keys to psychic powers, immortality, and divinity. Over the centuries it has fermented "into a refined wine---the Chateau vin du Rothschild of mystical wines," said Brooke. Revelation predicts that at some point the whole world becomes drunk on the wine of Babylon, its psychically-empowered celebrants convinced of their own divinity (Rev. 16:17-21; Rev. 17: 1-6).

1.The Yogic View of Jesus, Quincy Howe, July 7, 2014, Yoga International

The Dark 'God' of New Spirituality

Western and American culture has been hijacked by a spiritual ideology that Dr. Peter Jones calls Neo-Paganism and of which John Frame in the foreword to the book ‘On Global Wizardry,’ describes as an historical and worldwide

 "…movement of enormous cultural power, one that has sought for centuries and still seeks to dominate our world." (The New Spirituality, Emerging Church and the Bride, christianspectrum.org.uk)

 New Spirituality is grounded in a one-dimensional evolutionary cosmogony and is therefore both vehemently anti-two dimensional Genesis creation account ex nihilo and orthodox Christian and faithful Jew.  It holds that each world religion of nature shares a single universal truth---that the divine energy or consciousness (One Substance or Mind) has manifested itself through many deities in different places and at different times.  Thus no one deity can express the totality of the divine energy or consciousness.  This is called polytheism.

 New Spirituality has six other core beliefs:

1.   The divine energy or consciousness is present in nature and in each one of us.  This is called pantheism - the divine is everywhere.

2.  The divine energy is represented by both female and male energies.  These two major aspects of the divine are the goddess and god, although the divine, being beyond limitations of gender, is androgynous.

 3.   The 'Pagan Ethic' (also called the Wiccan Rede) is followed: If it harm none, do what you will.  This means a pagan cannot cause harm to anyone or anything, including themselves.

 4. Every person is god because they are aspects of the divine consciousness

 5. The purpose of life is overcoming "self." To new spiritualists from some Buddhist and Hindu traditions the "self" must be merged (lost) in the Divine Energy or Consciousness

 6.  Forecasting a pending, and for them a highly desirable "selection" of mankind in which the progressives enter the New Age millennium and the reactionaries face extinction. For the New Spirituality Apostles of "progressive" Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution."  (False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion, Lee Penn, p. 7)

 This "new" yet very ancient spirituality is a syncretic stew consisting of elements of Mystery Religion Babylon, Kabbalah, Egyptian Hermetic magic, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnostic paganism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Luciferian Theosophy, Wicca and progressive evolutionary Christianity united by a determined commitment to moral relativism and tolerance that paves the way for a one world religion. John Frame comments:

"These movements are parallel to one another, even congruent.  So they form a single movement in effect.  They work together, drawing on one another for support and inspiration, affirming one another, while they unite in opposing biblical Christianity." (ibid)

 In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called the New Age or new Spirituality Bible, Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) concurs and enthusiastically reports that a great, shuddering irrevocable shift in consciousness is overtaking us,

"It is a new mind, a turnabout in consciousness in critical numbers of individuals, a network powerful enough to bring about radical change in our culture.   This network....has already enlisted the minds, hearts and resources of some of our most advanced thinkers, including Nobel laureate scientists, philosophers, statesmen, celebrities....who are working to create a different kind of society...The technologies for expanding and transforming personal consciousness, once the secret of an elite, are now generating massive change in every cultural institution---medicine, politics, business, education, religion and the family."   (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt & McMahon, p. 34)

 Ferguson lists a number of  consciousness altering techniques:
 
".....Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, Focusing, Centering, Guided Imagery, Visualization, Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Biofeedback, Dianetics, Silva Mind Control..."  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, p. 43)

 Among other techniques for getting in touch with the "Christ consciousness" inner “Light,”  the "Force," "Mind of the Universe" and seething energy of Lucifer or the angel (Lucifer) are strenuous physical exercises, special diets (especially vegetarianism), Kundalini yoga, brain-altering drugs, trance music, mind science, chanting, psychodrama, consciousness-raising strategies, hypnosis and self-hypnosis, body disciplines and therapies such as hatha yoga and aikido as well as sensitivity groups and encounter groups, Zen, Tibetan Buddhism and transcendental meditation and yoga. 

The altered state of consciousness by which a man supposedly enters into communion with the "Mind of the Universe" with the help of spirit guides is called "opening of the senses" in Scripture:

"Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way with his drawn sword in his hand."  (Numbers 22:31, also see 2 Kings 6:17; Luke 24:16-31)  

Hypnotic trance-states are linked to ancient pagan religious practices and eastern mystical experiences that are essential to such practices as out-of-body experiences, astral projection, and Yoga. Historically, hypnosis has been an integral part of world pagan religious practices and pantheist systems stretching back to the mother of all such systems: Babylon.  

In ’Recognitions’ church father Clement records an evil deed committed by the Gnostic pagan magician Simon that bears a striking resemblance to the effects of modern altered state of consciousness techniques.   Clement reports that Simon had begun to commit murder by inducing a child to experience an out of body situation.  By way of mesmerizing,

"...abominable incantations he separated the soul of a child from its own body that it might become his assistant for the production of whatever apparition he might require.  And he drew a likeness of the boy, and keeps it set up in the inner chamber where he sleeps, affirming that he...formed him of air by transformations such as the gods cause..." (Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember, p. 181)

In his interpretation of this dark passage, G.H. Pember concluded,

 "...by mesmerism Simon had drawn out the spirit of the boy into a higher...state, and then omitted to recall it, so that the spirit had finally separated from the body; and that he had done this for the purpose of procuring a (spirit) familiar....Simon....denied the murder of the boy by asserting that he had merely resolved a spirit-form which he had himself produced." (Earth's Earliest Ages, p. 182)

 In his 'Apology' church father Tertullian writes that if magicians can produce apparitions, bring into evil repute the spirits of men who are dead,

 "....mesmerize boys to obtain an oracular response...perform many wonders...by their conjuring illusions; send dreams by the aiding power of angels and demons whom they have...summoned to their assistance; through whose influence also goats and tables have been made to divine; how much more will that Satanic power be zealous to do with all its strength, of its own will, and for its own purposes, that which it does to serve the ends of others." (Pember, pp. 184-185)

Since during trance states demons can interfere with and even possess the passive or empty mind, meditation therefore serves as an open doorway into the realm of evil spirits and dangerous demonic deceptions.

In a synthetic way, hallucinogenic drugs also assist users to experience an altered state of consciousness. There are as well certain types of music, such as trance and heavy metal that enhance and in many cases produce in the mind and spirit of the listener an altered state, hence spiritual transformation. In secularized Westerners and unwary Christians alike, altered states by whatever means eventually end in altered world view.

 As it was in the days of Noah

As Ferguson admits, the hypnotic-technologies being taught over and across our culture were once the private domain of ancient magicians and sorcerers.   In fact, as Constance Cumbey reveals in her thoroughly researched book, "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow," many new spirituality historians claim their traditions originated in pre-flood Atlantis (during the time of Noah) and afterward were preserved in the ancient land of Babylon,

 "...and surrounding Plains of Shinar and from there disseminated throughout the earth, including Taoist doctrines of China, Mayan-Aztec teachings of Mexico and Central/South America; Great Spirit teachings of the American Indians, Hindu/Buddhist teachings of Asia, etc." (pp. 250-251)

In affirmation, Church Father Clement writes:

 "Fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man.  After the flood Ham the son of Noah unhappily discovered this and taught it to his sons.  This became ingrained into the Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians.  Ham died shortly after the fall of the Tower of Babel.  Nimrod, called Ninus by the Greeks, was handed this knowledge and by it caused men to go away from the worship of God and go into diverse and erratic superstitions and they began to be governed by the signs in the stars and motions of the planets." (Recognitions of Clement 4.26-29)

 The Tower of Babel was Babylon's founding edifice and spiritual center, observes Brooks Alexander, Research Director for Spiritual Counterfeits Project.  Brooks describes the Tower as an astral temple or gate-way into the dimension of spirits and the Divine Energy.  It therefore represented the structure of the one-dimensional universe:
 
" As the 'cosmic mountain' it tied heaven and earth together.  It was the all-inclusive image of the totality of the universe." (The Big Lie, SCP Journal 29:2-29:3, 2005, Tal Brooke, p. 11)
 
The magical meaning of the Tower is the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle of the universe or macrocosm's correlation with the microcosm, "as above, so below" symbolized by the Ouroboros – the serpent-powered cosmic tree of life symbolized by a snake biting its tail.  "Below" corresponds to the earth, initiate (aspiring god man), and Tower and 'above' to a number of different astral planes and sub-planes comprising the habitations,

"(of all) supernatural entities, the locale of gods and demons, the void where the thought forms 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 to our own, the serpent-energized Ouroboros with its astral planes has been well-known around the world in its' many esoteric (occult secret) 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)
 
Brooks adds that in the ritual act of ascending the astral altar,

 "…. the priests acted out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos.  The Babylonian monarch was the focus of the occult power channeled through the activities of the priesthood.  He was regarded as a divine being, a god-man."  (ibid, The Big Lie, p. 10)    
 
 In other words, with the help of spirit guides (fallen angels and demons), psycho-technologies and other occult rituals, initiates believed they could spiritually progress or evolve up the astral planes to visit the realm of the gods and become the mouth-pieces for the gods and goddesses.  
 
According to occult lore, at the final level of initiation spirit entities (demons) fully possess the body of the monarch to replace his spirit. This means that the spirit of the monarch is no longer in residence as a 'new' spirit totally possesses and animates the monarch's body.  This is why the monarch thereafter was regarded as a divine being, a god-man.
 
Upon possession of the monarch's body, the spirit exudes a powerful mesmerizing influence that draws most of the community into it’s' sphere of influence and domination resulting in communal possession.  
 
Possession takes two forms, communal and individual.  Communal or collective possession is,

"...strongly institutionalized, and ritualistically induced, but peripheral possession is more normally individual and spontaneous." (Demonic Possession: A Medical, Historical, Anthropological, and Theological Symposium, John Warwick Montgomery (ed.), Bethany, 1976)

 Possession and Other Dangers of Mind-Altering Techniques

 According to a 1987 New York Times article, psychologists who have studied mind-altering techniques said that while participants are in this 'altered state' group-leaders are able to implant new ideas and alter thinking processes:
 
"Gurus hired to motivate workers are raising fears of 'mind control." (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt, McMahon)
 
This charge is so grave and frightening that former University of Wisconsin psychology faculty member Edwin Morse warns that graduates of New Age courses being required for employees of many businesses are often "psychologically scarred."  Now in private practice and specializing in helping such people, Dr. Morse declares:
 
"These (mind-altering) groups are using hypnotic procedures and people are not being told about it." (Dave Hunt, p. 42)
 
Richard L. Waring of Budget Rent-a-Car Corporation asserts that mind-altering techniques induce a trance-like state and adds that many participants are convinced that they have come

under harmful, frightening influence from spirit entities as a result.  Arguing that people exposed by employers to,

  "New Age psycho-technologies (for) altering normal consciousness....ought to be told up front" that inevitably their "fundamental worldviews and Judeo-Christian religious beliefs' are being tampered with.  

 Waring adds,

 "For about the last three years, I have observed the introduction and growth of a new philosophy of human potential and development (most often referred to) as the 'New Age' movement... I began noticing a number of consultants and corporate Human Resources Development practitioners who were promoting 'higher creativity,' 'improved memory,' 'accelerated learning,' 'stress management.'  I found that most of these methods were somewhere on Ferguson's list of 'means to altering consciousness'(and) I began to wonder about the motives of the persons selling these concepts. Were they really out to improve human potential? Or had they had some profound experience on their spiritual journey and were really enlisting others to follow their path?" (ibid, pp. 42-43)

 In our schools children are being taught the ancient occult art of "centering," a psycho-technique that opens up their minds to the influence of demons.  In his book, "America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom," Allen Quist warns:

 "New Age religion is now aggressively being taught in our nation's public schools." A model curriculum has been developed that "is clearly centered on pantheism." "Much of what passes for environmental education and multiculturalism is really indoctrination in pantheistic/New Age theology. The ACLU and other similar organizations have no objections to (pantheistic indoctrination). It is only Christianity that these organizations object to." (p. 51)

Tom DeWeese, President of the American Policy Center, has also been following the explosive growth of occult New Age spirituality. In a work entitled, "Teachers, Preachers and Greens: The Unholy Alliance to Transform America," DeWeese reveals the existence of a well-funded yet covert effort to alter the consciousness of American society through an aggressive assault on schools and churches.  He reveals that the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City is one of the initiating centers of the assault and the home of the enormously influential occult spiritual Gaia Institute as well as the Temple of Understanding — a politically influential U.N. Non-Governmental Organization. DeWeese describes a pagan "church service" at St. John the Divine:

"As the congregation sit in their church pews in the great Cathedral of St. John, the Divine in New York City, the priest stands at the altar, ready to receive a procession of animals for the annual Feast of Saint Francis blessing. Down the aisle comes a procession of elephants, camels, donkeys, monkeys and birds. These are followed by members of the congregation carrying bowls of compost and worms. Next, to the sounds of music come acrobats and jugglers. In the pulpit, former Vice President Al Gore delivers a sermon, saying, "God is not separate from the Earth." (federalobserver.com)

So-called 'extraterrestrials' are also at work.   In "Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection," Gary Bates reports that the abduction phenomenon is occurring all over the world, including Third World countries. 

  UFO researcher Jacques Vallee concurs and notes that the abductee's perceptions of reality (consciousness) are being profoundly altered and adds that the structure of abduction stories is identical to occult rituals:
 
"...contact with ufonauts (is) a modern extension of contact with non-human consciousness in the form of angels, demons, elves, and sylphs....Such contact...often leaves marks and scars on the body and the mind..."   (p. 230)
 
 UFO research-scientist John Keel also likens modern alien abductions to contact with the demonic:

 "Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology.  It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have...coexisted with man throughout history....The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not identical, to the UFO phenomenon.  Victims of demonomania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees..."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 260)
 
After considerable research, Bates connects psycho-techniques utilized by ‘ETs” to hypnosis.  So-called 'aliens' use hypnotic methods to enter into the subconscious mind to plant subliminal messages and alter thought processes to embrace the concept of naturalistic evolution which negates the Genesis account. (Bates, p. 262)

Globalized New Spirituality

The Book of Genesis informs us that before the great flood the antediluvian world was in a frenzy of wickedness, no doubt aided and abetted by the Watchers.   God's wrath fell upon that world while a remnant was preserved in the ark.   But scarcely had the waters receded when Ham rediscovered and resurrected the teachings of the Watchers from the antediluvian world.  Utilizing these teachings, Nimrod turned the people away from the worship of God and revived the necessary elements of Mystery Religion Atlantis to establish his own post-flood version. 

 While Mystery Religion Babylon is the post-flood root of all mystery religions, in its' final version, communal and individual possession will become a global phenomenon as untold millions of people ritualistically act out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos:

".....I can be saved only by becoming one with the universe.  Thereby, too, my deepest 'pantheist' aspirations. It was especially the image of God which Teilhard saw in need of urgent redefinition. Modern man has not yet found the God he can adore, A God commensurate to the newly discovered dimensions of the universe." (Towards a New Mysticism, Teilhard de Chardin and Eastern Religions, Ursula King, p. 172

 “Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the ‘divine,’ it’s transcendence into ever higher forms of life.  Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine.  This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity.  Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age...” (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Robert Muller, father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)   

 As they spiritually rise on the astral planes who is the god they will become "one" with? 

 New spirituality relies heavily on the spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Of these it is Blavatsky who reveals this closely guarded secret.   

 Blavatsky founded the Theosophical Society to promote occult doctrine, religious philosophy and wisdom tradition.  Theosophy holds that all pagan religions are attempts by the Occult Brotherhood (fallen angels) to help humanity in evolving to greater perfection, and that each pagan religion therefore has a portion of the truth.  These teachings, which Blavatsky called ‘The Ageless Wisdom’, had previously only been available to Secret Societies from the time of Babylon and Atlantis, but she obtained them from the Brotherhood during her travels to Egypt and India. (ibid, christianspectrum)

 In her book, ‘The Secret Doctrine,’ Blavatsky reveals the name of the "god" of New Spirituality:

 "Satan and his rebellious host will thus prove to have become the direct Saviours and Creators of divine man . . . It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God.  Satan (or Lucifer) represents the Centrifugal Energy of the Universe, this ever-living symbol of self-sacrifice for the intellectual independence of humanity.    

 In volume II of “The Secret Doctrine” she said:

 "….it is but natural…to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was the first to whisper: “in the day ye eat thereof, ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil” – can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour….”  (Theosophical University Press, 1888, p. 243)

 “And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the “Lord of Phosphorus” (brimstone was a theological improvement), and Lucifer, or “Light Bearer,” is in us: It is our Mind – our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism. Without this principle… we would be surely no better than animals” (ibid)

Now it becomes clear why leading new spirituality adepts speak of the necessity of the Luciferian initiation for all who wish to enter the coming utopian millennium.

 Revelation reports that at some point the whole world will become drunk on the wine of Babylon, its' deluded celebrants convinced of their own deity when in reality they've received the mark of Satan. 

 The clearest answer to the apocalyptic atmosphere of our time is found in the Bible.  We are living in the Last Days.  History is winding down and Satan is mobilizing his forces for a final all-out assault--- which we are already experiencing (1 Tim. 4:1 and 2; Tim. 3:1-4) The demonic realm is brazenly interacting with our own realm, and it is in this light that we can understand the growing epidemic of madness, extremism, paranoia, suicide, apathy, apostasy, lawlessness, and hatred appearing on every side. 

 We are living in the days of a demonic nature, said Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987).  For over fifty years Dr. Koch's name has been synonymous with authoritative and biblical insights and help for all who desire to understand or escape from the mesmerizing influence of the occult and demonic world.  According to Koch, civilization is marching toward its own destruction and if we fail therefore to take our stand at the foot of the cross,

 "... fail to build our house upon the Rock, (we will) be swept away by the turmoil of the End-times."  (Demonology Past and Present, Koch, p. 37)

Hellish Beings, NDEs and UFO Encounters: The Spirit World Moving Closer to Our Own

"I was confronted by a red light, exceedingly bright...I was aware that this light was responsible for the government of the universe." ("What I Saw When I was Dead," atheist A.J. Ayer)

"Whenever I stopped pushing on his chest in order to adjust the pacemaker, the heart would stop and Charlie's eyes would roll up. He again would sputter, turn blue and begin to convulse. I reached over and started him up again. But this time, he was screaming the words, "Don't stop! I'm in hell! I'm in hell!" (To Hell and Back,  Maurice Rawlings, M.D.)

In his bestseller, "Life After Death: The Evidence," author Dinesh D'Souza presents a logically reasoned, scientifically based case that the evidence for life after death greatly outweighs atheistic claims to the contrary. D'Souza notes that throughout the world today Near Death Experiences (NDEs) are acknowledged to be a global phenomenon that provide strong support for life after death. Indeed said D'Souza,a 2005 survey of American doctors,

"...showed that 59 percent now believe in some form of afterlife, a much higher percentage than is found in other scientific professions. Possibly their encounter with patients who have had near death experiences is partly responsible for this. I doubt they learned it in medical school." (pp. 64-65)

It isn't just NDEs that have revived interest in unseen intelligences and the afterlife but increasing cases of possession and UFO encounters with beings calling themselves Space Brothers, Council of Nine, Semjase and Ashtar.

World-renowned UFOlogist and archaeologist Dr. Clifford Wilson is but one of many researchers who have pointed out how an entity calling itself "Ashtar" keeps popping up in UFO accounts.   Apart from Semjase (Samlazaz, Semjaza), who has been posing as a modern space-brother, Ashtar keeps appearing in UFO literature as well as ancient texts.  John Keel, one of the world's most published and highly respected UFOlogists also noted this.   Highlighting the element of deception he wrote:
 
"Thousands of mediums, psychics, and UFO contactees have been receiving mountains of messages from "Ashtar" in recent years.... Ashtar is not a new arrival.    Variations of this name, such as Astaroth, Ashar, Asharoth, etc. appear in demonological literature throughout history, both in the Orient and Occident.   Mr. Ashtar had been around a very long time, posing as assorted gods and demons and now, in the modern phase, as another glorious spaceman."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 290)

In ancient Babylon, Astoreth (Inanna, Ashtar, Ishtar, Istar, Semiramis, Milcom, Cybele, Astarte, Isis, Demeter, Aphrodite) was the androgynous consort of Anu, the supreme sky god.  

According to Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthxchange, androgynous (transgender/bi-sexual) priests were associated with the worship of the goddess Istar from the Sumerian age (1800 BC). Their condition was due to their devotion to Istar,

“... who herself had ‘transformed their masculinity into femininity.'”  (Androgyny: The Pagan Sexual Ideal, Dr. Jones, truthxchange)

Who are Semjaza and Ashtar/Istar?

According to ANE Scholar Dr. Michael Heiser, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University, Semjaza and Ashtar are fallen, wicked Watchers, serpentine Seraphim,

"There are "good" serpentine beings (seraphim) who guard God's throne (so Isaiah 6's seraphim), and there are fallen, wicked serpentine beings (seraphim) who rebelled against the Most High at various times, and who became the pagan gods of the other nations."   (Michael Heiser, "Serpentine/Reptillian Divine Beings in the Hebrew Bible: A Preliminary Investigation," cited by Bryan Godawa, "Enoch Primordial," p. 363)

Ex-evolutionist turned young earth creationist, Dr. Gary Bates turned to the Book of Enoch for identification of Semjaza.  Not only does the Book of Jude 14-15 refer to the book of Enoch but is an exact rendering of Enoch, chapter 1:9.   Moreover, Enoch 6-7 identifies Semjaza as a ringleader of the 200 Watchers who descended Mount Hermon in the pre-flood world:

"Come, let us choose wives from among the children of men and beget us children."  And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: "I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin."  And they all answered him and said: "Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations upon it.  And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon....And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz (Shemihazah)... Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, Asael (Azazel), Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqlel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel."  (Alien Intrusion, Bates, p. 398)

The Watchers taught men forbidden knowledge such as enchantments, sorcery, incantations, the science of magic transformism (change or evolution of one kind into another kind), astrology, science of constellations, and the smiting of the embryo in the womb (abortion), that it may pass away.  They also taught men how  to make weapons of war.  

The Spirit World Moving Closer

"Sorry, but your soul just died." (naturalist Tom Wolfe, cited in The Spiritual Brain: A Neuroscientist's Case for the Existence of the Soul, Beauregard and O'Leary, p. 4)

With breathtaking speed, Americans led into forgetfulness of their own souls are emerging from a cocoon of spiritual deadness induced by scientific materialism and evolution into a frightening occult spiritual reality including NDEs and evil spirits long known about by ancient pagans and early Christians.  

With regard to the state of the soul upon the death of its' body, as well as its state during Near Death Experiences and out-of-body-experiences attained by way of certain drugs, transcendental meditation or other psycho-spiritual techniques early Church Father St. Augustine taught that when a soul separates itself from its' body,

"the man himself who is in such a state, though it be in spirit only, not in body, yet sees himself so like to his own body that he cannot discern any difference whatever." (City of God, Book XXI, 10)

In his treatise, "The Divination of Demons" Augustine explains why men, when "in body" are unable to perceive demons and angels:

"The nature of demons is such that, though the sense perception belonging to the aerial body, (spirits) readily surpass the perception possessed by earthly bodies, and in speed too, because of the superior mobility of the aerial body, they incomparably excel not only the movements of men and of beasts but even the flight of birds. Endowed with these two faculties (keenness of perception and speed of movement) they foretell and declare many things that they have recognized far in advance. At this, because of the sluggishness of earthly perception, men wonder." Because evil spirits have existed from the beginning they, "have gained a far greater experience in events than accrues to men because of the brief span of their lives."  Thus, "demons not only foretell many things that will occur, but also perform many miraculous acts." (Chapter 3, Divination of Demons)

Though men cannot perceive evil spirits, they are there, said Church Father Cassian in his "Conferences." According to Cassian:

"Such a multitude of evil spirits fills this air which is spread out between heaven and earth and in which they fly in disturbance and not idly, that the Divine Providence for our benefit has hidden and removed them from the gaze of men; otherwise, from fear of their attack, or of the frightful spectacle of the faces into which they are transformed and changed by their own will...men would be struck with unbearable terror and ready for collapse..." (The Soul After Death, Fr. Seraphim Rose, pp. 29-30)

It is during "out of body experiences" that the soul of man can fully perceive aerial spirits. The most commonly reported encounters are with a wonderful being of light experienced as some kind of personal being filled with warmth and love to whom the out-of-body soul is drawn by a kind of magnetic attraction. Often the experience includes many other apparitions, including other people. Church Father Gregory the Great describes these encounters in his Dialogues:

"It frequently happens that a soul on the point of death recognizes those with whom it is to share the same eternal dwelling for equal blame or reward."   To the righteous, "it often happens that the saints of heaven appear (and) with the vision of the heavenly company before their minds, they die without experiencing any fear or agony." (Dialogues, IV, 12)

In his book on the Holy Spirit, Church Father Basil the Great states the heavenly powers only appear,

 "...to those who are worthy, in the form of their own bodies." (Works of St. Basil, cited in The Soul After Death, p. 23)

Jesus Christ Himself affirms that to the worthy appear the heavenly powers:

"And it came to pass that the begger died, and that he was carried away by the angels into Abraham's bosom." Luke 16:22

There is nothing vague about the heavenly powers. They do not appear as "beings of light" but rather have a human appearance. By contrast, the being of light frequently encountered during out-of-body-experiences and NDEs has no visible form and does not conduct the soul anywhere. The being of light merely engages the soul in dialogue and shows flashbacks of one's past life. But then Satan can in fact fashion himself into an angel of light. (II Cor. 11:14)

In his 1975 book, "Life After Death," Dr. Raymond Moody reported on 150 cases of people who experienced NDEs. What made these cases incredible was that most of these people had similar if not virtually identical experiences. With regard to the being of light Dr. Moody and other investigators wondered if it was an evil spirit but then dismissed the possibility because it was not in harmony with the wonderful results the apparition produces.

Ex-atheist Dr. Maurice Rawlings, a cardiologist, resuscitated many people who had been clinically dead. After accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, Rawlings dismissed Moody's contention on the basis of his own terrifying experiences with some of his patients.  These frightening experiences taught him that contrary to the most-published accounts of NDE encounters with a being filled with warmth and love,  some NDE's are absolutely terrifying. In these hellish encounters, the out-of-body soul meets with grotesque beings,

"....who may be lurking in the shadows or along a burning lake of fire. The horrors defy description..." Even some "regular church members" have been shocked to find themselves experiencing hellish, "manifestations of imps and grotesque giants, of a descent into blackness and a fiery heat, of a pit and an ocean of fire." (Beyond Death's Door, Rawlings, pp. 63-64, 103-110)

 German actor Curt Jürgen's experienced a horrifying feeling that life was ebbing away from him.  After this he felt powerful sensations of dread as everything suddenly turned a glowing red.  Then he saw twisted faces grimacing as they stared down at him.  He tried to defend himself but,

"... could no longer shut out the frightful truth: beyond the faces dominating this fiery world were faces of the damned. I had a feeling of despair....the sensation of horror was so great it choked me. Obviously I was in Hell itself (and then suddenly) the black silhouette of a human figure began to draw near...a woman...with lipless mouth and in her eyes an expression that sent icy shudders down my back. She stretched out her arms...and pulled me by an irresistible force (into) a world filled with....sounds of lamentation....I asked the figure...who she was. A voice answered: "I am death." (German actor Curt Jürgen's, To Hell and Back, pp. 76-77)

Dr.  Rawlings was convinced that upon death all humans either enter heaven or hell. In a video hosted by Rawlings, he investigates life after death and his experiences with patients that actually saw 'the other side':

Dr. Carl Raschke is an internationally known writer and academic who for the past decade has been researching and explaining the effects of postmodern Christianity and its global significance. He notes with alarm America's downward spiral into the madness of demonic spirituality. He points out that the decadence, pornography, mass murders, criminality, the 'new religions,' and Satanism in American culture have certain social and spiritual ties that bind them together, revealing that they are part of a similar spiritual genus. In "Satanism and the Devolution of the 'New Religions,' Raschke notes that Satanism is so widespread today that there are even U.S. military personnel who are members of secretive Satanist groups.

Raschke concludes that the post-Christian West is experiencing an upsurge in satanic manifestations because it is a social order attempting to " sustain itself without God." (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West, Part 6, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

Unless we are mistaken...the twentieth century...is to witness a gigantic conflict of spirits...More serious and fiercer than ever before, the conflict is between the old and the new worldview." Herman Bavinck, Christian theologian, 1901

It is only within the context of Western and American apostasy into will-to-power, science as the only acceptable knowledge, relativism, pagan evolutionary idolatry and postmodernism that today's dramatic increase in satanic spirituality and worldly encounters can be understood and it is Church Father Gregory the Great who makes clear just what is going on and why. After describing various visions and after death experiences in his Dialogues, Gregory remarks,

"the spiritual world is moving closer to us, manifesting itself through visions and revelations...As the present world approaches its end, the world of eternity looms nearer..."

Gregory adds that through these visions and revelations, which in our own time are much more common and widespread than they were in his, we see the truths of the future life imperfectly because the light is still "dim and pale, like the light of the sun in the early hours of the day just before dawn."

In other words, during Gregory's time mankind was being provided clear proof that the Holy Triune God exists as does the supernatural realm, holy angels, demons, and hell  and that life does not end with the death of the body. Moreover, there really is an eternal soul that survives the death of its' body and is in fact more conscious and alive after it is released from its' body.

At no time in the history of mankind has possession, UFO encounters, NDEs and other 'out-of-body-experiences' been a worldwide phenomenon such that secular investigators have taken notice. Gregory saw that the spiritual realm was even then approaching. The marked increase of such phenomena in our own time is a sign of its extreme nearness and therefore signals the approaching end of this world.

The 20th Century: Beginning of the Aeon of Horus, Reign of God-Men, and End of the Christian God

The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites...We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end... The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?”   O’Brien, in 1984, by George Orwell

The symbol of the Party or Big Brother is the pagan magician, a demonized man-god who has acquired powerful psychic powers and gnosis through actualization of the cosmic World Soul within his own brain.  Thus he creates his own world and meaning in every living moment out of his own divine consciousness.   In other words, since the substance of God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos including the unconscious mind of man, then by means of self-induced trance states, brain-altering drugs, transcendental meditation and other Magic Ways, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls matter because he controls mind. The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man.

This way of thinking is captured by Orwell in his book, "Nineteen Eighty-Four" in which negation of the physical world is an integral part of the social and political philosophy of Big Brother and his tyrannical Party.  At one stage in the book, Winston stumbles upon the shocking realization that in the end the Party would announce that two and two made five and,

"...you would have to believe it.  It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later; the logic of their position demanded it.  Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy." ("The New Spirituality and its Hallmarks, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 30:4-31:1, 2007, p. 19)

God-men are legion 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.      A few examples of Western and Eastern god-men are Auguste Comte, Nietzsche, Karl Marx, sundry Indian god-men (i.e., Rajneesh. Muktananda, Sri Chinmoy), Teilhard de Chardin,  L. Ron Hubbard and Aleisiter Crowley .  Each god-man either established a natural religion of scientism (Comte), scientific Communism (Marx), scientific and evolutionary "New Christianity" (Teilhard) or powerful cults that have drawn and continue to draw souls to their doom since each demonized god-man is a harvester of souls for the kingdom of the Evil One.  

Aleister Crowley: Founder of Thelema

Thelema is an Eastern influenced occult spiritual philosophy of pantheist monism developed by Crowley,  a 20th century British writer, ceremonial magician and Satanist.  Pantheist monism asserts the divine-human link:

 "All is ultimately One.  This doctrine is fundamental to mysticism, both eastern and western.  God, man, and the universe are fundamentally one.  The Creator-creature distinction, so crucial to orthodox Judaism and Christianity, is specifically denied.  The so-called 'spark of divinity' in each man supposedly leads all men back into oneness with God (the Universal Force)....The body, the mind, the soul are one within the physical forces...In each entity there is that portion which is a part of the Universal Force...God is impersonal; only man is truly personal.  This is (a) central theme of monist systems.  Man is the personal agent of the impersonal God."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 207)  
 
Within the system of pagan and pantheist monism, God is an evolutionary Force or Energy to be managed, a power to be tapped by initiates and enlightened god-men.  This impersonal Force that supposedly drives the universe's evolutionary destiny was referred to centuries ago in the European magical tradition as the divine Mens, or Mind.  It was cosmic in scope and through careful study and practice (occult or magic science) the magician could control and channel its' power.   The ultimate goal was to acquire powerful psychic powers and gnosis through recreation or actualization of the cosmic Mens within the human mind. (1)
 
In the main, Thelema is based upon a spiritual encounter that Crowley and his wife had in Egypt in 1904 with a spirit calling itself Aiwass.  According to Crowley, Aiwass contacted him and dictated a text known as The Book of the Law or Liber AL vel Legis, which outlined the principles of Thelema.
 
The Thelemic pantheon focuses primarily on a trinity of horned deities adapted from ancient Egyptian pantheist monism who are the three speakers of The Book of the Law: Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The three speakers predicted that the 20th century would mark the ending of the Christian God and Christian theism and the beginning of the Aeon of Horus, an age of apostasy into pantheist monism, creative destruction, force and fire wrought by demonized god-men and their masses of disciples--- a self-absorbed, destructive generation, the followers of a new ethical code, an anti-morality summed up as, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law."  
 
In "Our Savage God: The Perverse Use of Eastern Thought," R.C. Zaehner, Spalding professor of comparative religion of Oxford, discusses the monistic (collectivist/oneness) goals of Hinduism and Buddhism and how the Satanist Aleister Crowley applied monistic philosophy to his own ends.  Crowley, said Zaehner, belonged to an age-old monistic tradition which saw the Eternal (Supreme Soul, Void, Abyss, Quantum Vacuum) as the ultimate unity in which all opposites were reconciled, including God with man, man with woman, woman with man, good with evil. (2)
 
Zaehner also discusses Crowley's attainment of Buddhist "enlightenment," the results of which were "revised" by his spirit guide "Aiwass."   Having assisted Crowley to go beyond good and evil, Aiwass now taught him indulgence.   Aiwass, Crowley's "Holy Guardian Angel," taught "him that absolute bliss could only be attained by enjoying the good things of this world to the full---riches, power, and above all sex, the earthly counterpart of the transcendent union of the opposite." (ibid)
 
As a result, Crowley partook of tantric kundalini sex-magic rites ostensibly for "spiritual" ends.  His "Ordo Templi Orientalis" (Order of the Oriental Temple or O.T.O.) became a branch of Western Tantra.  Indeed, Crowley seems to have been the principal agent responsible for introducing the perversion of Eastern sex magic to the West.  In a text entitled "Yoga: Immortality and Freedom," the yoga authority and University of Chicago professor Mircea Eliade discusses the amoral orientation of Tantra:
 
"The tantric texts frequently repeat the saying, "By the same acts that cause some men to burn in hell....the yogin gains his eternal salvation."....This...is the foundation stone of the Yoga expounded by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita (XVIII, 17).  "He who has no feeling of egoism, and whose mind is not tainted, even though he kills (all) these people, kills not, is not fettered (by the action)."  "And the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad (V,14, 8) had already said: "One who knows this, although he commits very much evil, consumes it all and becomes clean and pure, ageless and immortal."  (ibid, p. 112) 
 
 In addition to his spirit-guide Aiwass, another important mentor of Crowley's was Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher who declared the death of the Christian God and called himself the Anti-Christ:
 
"The greatest recent event – that 'God is dead,' that the belief in the Christian God has ceased to be believable – is even now beginning to cast its first shadows over Europe; however, few really understood " what has really happened here, "and what must collapse now that this belief has been undermined – all that was built upon it, leaned on it, grew into it; for example, our whole European morality." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 433) 
 
Nietzsche argued for the nonexistence of the Christian God as follows:
 
"I will now disprove the existence of all gods. If there were gods, how could I bear not to be a god? Consequently, there are no gods." (3)
 
Each major book of Nietzsche's is, in a different way, an attack on the Christian God and Christian faith. The central axis of Nietzsche's philosophy is always the same---he is as centered on Jesus Christ as Augustine was, only he centered on Christ as his enemy. 
 
With "Ecce Homo" Nietzsche willingly embraces lies and dark fantasy while in "The Genealogy of Morals" he claims that Biblical morality was invented by the "weak," meaning the Jews and then the Christians, to weaken the strong. Thus sheep convinced wolves to act like sheep, and this is unnatural, argued the Anti-Christ who embraced lies and dark fantasy such as "‘Whoever must be a creator always annihilates’ (4)
 
Creation and destruction are as inseparable to Aiwass as to Nietzsche's spirit guide Zarathustra: the creator must always destroy. Thus it follows that a new world order is always preceded by the destruction of the old, hated order:

"The man who breaks… tables of values, the breaker, the lawbreaker; …he is the creator."(Nietzsche)
 
One of the central ideas taught by Zarathustra is that since ‘self’ is self-evolved then Zarathustra's disciple must take responsibility for who he is, for creating himself and his own laws. The implication of this idea is that the old ‘self’ must be destroyed in order to make way for the new ‘self’:

You must wish to consume yourself in your own flame: how could you wish to become new unless you had first become ashes!’ (Nietzsche)
 
The aftermath of the destruction of "self" is insanity (demonization) followed by possession. This is experienced by power yogis when kundalini current finally reaches full voltage with the result that the so-called Soul of the Universe supposedly occupies the body but is in fact an ancient evil spirit residing in the body of the 'god-man:'

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity.  The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)."   Finally it happened---Explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated.  Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels."   "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..."   (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45) 
 
In "Beyond Good and Evil" the Anti-Christ presents his "Master morality," the anti-morality summarized by Crowley as "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." What this means is that since demonized God-hating liars have conceptually "murdered" the Holy Triune God and sealed up heaven, Masters have a natural right to do whatever they please, for everything is permissible. Whatever a Master commands becomes good from the mere fact that the Master wills it:

"Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”   ('Paedophilia is natural and normal for males,' Andrew Gilligan, telegraph.co.uk, Jul 2014)
 
"The Twilight of the Idols" explores the consequences of the murder of the Christian God. With His death is liberation from the supernatural Mind, Authority and Will that has transcended the mind and will of man who is now god and decrees the death of eternally existing Truth, Moral Absolutes, sin and agape love. With the murder of the Triune God, there will no longer be a heaven for the sheep since all of these "idols" will die now that loveless men have murdered the Holy God the Father Almighty.
 
Who will replace the murdered Triune God? The demonized Superman, the new Master of the Universe. Nietzsche's masterpiece, "Thus Spake Zarathustra," celebrates this new god. Nietzsche called Zarathustra the new anti-Gospel and told the world to "throw away all other books; you have my Zarathustra."
 
Among contemporary intelligentsia and global 'god-men' (trans-humanists and practitioners of the Magic Way) intent upon ushering in a worldwide Scientific Dictatorship, a sustainable green pagan heaven on earth created by Masters for Masters, two of the most widely-read and acclaimed thinkers today are the sadistic murderer, the Marquis de Sade, and Friedrich Nietzsche, the Anti-Christ. Many twentieth century totalitarians were disciples of Nietzsche, including America's green Progressive Left and Hitler.
 
In "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," William Shirer recounts Hitler's frequent sojourns to the Nietzsche museum in Weimar. Commenting on Hitler's veneration for Nietzsche, Shirer writes:
 
"There was some ground for this appropriation of Nietzsche as one of the originators of the Nazi Weltanschauung. Had not the philosopher thundered against democracy and parliaments, preached the will to power, praised war and proclaimed the coming of the master race and the superman--and in the most telling aphorisms? (Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, 1959)
 
Though Nietzsche harshly criticized socialism, his evolutionary thinking and monist (collectivist) political and social thoughts also harmonized well with Marxism.
 
In "Nietzsche: A Precursor to Hitler?" researcher Phillip D. Collins writes that in addition to the continuity of pagan political and social thought that pervaded totalitarian socialism, Nietzsche also provided a religious component. The infamous declaration, "God is dead," is but a segue for the introduction of a new Babylonian god merged with mystical Eastern pantheism. This god of evolutionary forces has had, and continues to have, numerous manifestations, as is evidenced by the following delineation by W. Warren Wagar:
 
"Nineteenth-and early twentieth-century thought teems with time-bound emergent deities. Scores of thinkers preached some sort of faith in what is potential in time, in place of the traditional Christian and mystical faith in a power outside of time. Hegel's Weltgeist, Comte's Humanite, Spencer's organismic humanity inevitably improving itself by the laws of evolution, Nietzsche's doctrine of superhumanity, the conception of a finite God given currency by J.S. Mill, Hastings Rashdall, and William James, the vitalism of Bergson and Shaw, the emergent evolutionism of Samuel Alexander and Lloyd Morgan, the theories of divine immanence in the liberal movement in Protestant theology, and du Nouy's telefinalism--all are exhibits in evidence of the influence chiefly of evolutionary thinking, both before and after Darwin, in Western intellectual history. The faith of progress itself--especially the idea of progress as built into the evolutionary scheme of things--is in every way the psychological equivalent of religion. (Wagar, 106 -07)"
 
Nietzsche's self-evolved Superman was but one more link in an ideational chain connecting  Luciferian revolutionaries such as Hegel, Comte, Marx, Stalin, Hitler, Crowley, and contemporary New World Order Masters of the Universe. The central theme is a green religious faith in humanity's evolutionary ascent towards godhood. Collins writes that this is by no means new:
 
"This doctrine of transformism dates back nearly 6,000 years, finding its crucible in Mesopotamia. It was the religious doctrine promulgated by the ancient Babylonian and Egyptian Mystery cults."

Masonic scholar W.L. Wilmshurst verifies this contention:
 
"This--the evolution of man into superman--was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries" (Wilmshurst, W.L. The Meaning of Masonry. New York: Gramercy, 1980)
 
Nietzsche's Superman represents the pinnacle of biological and spiritual evolution. At the apex of the anti-creation, anti-human evolutionary process, Superman would "overcome" his own fleshly humanity---his mortality, his conscience, human weaknesses and limitations. Just as this post-human condition represented godhood for ancient Mystery Religion initiates, so it represents godhood for Nietzsche, Hitler, Crowley, inner circle Masons, contemporary Transhumanists, Spiritual Transhumanists, occult New Agers and their apostate New Christian counterparts who are even now rewriting the Bible so it will reflect evolutionary and pagan thinking.
 
Inherent in this ancient anti-creation, anti-human belief are Nietzsche's Western pagan, Eastern pantheist, and neo-Gnostic teachings that the fall of soul into the material realm was either inexplicable or explained as punishment. At any rate it was a plunge from being as one with or an aspect of the Divine Substance into the material realm of distinctions, or binary. The Fall then is not into sin as a result of disobedience but rather into matter. Salvation means either reabsorption into the Divine Substance or attainment of godhood by way of an evolutionary process controlled by illumined adepts.
 
Nietzsche's version of gnosis resulting from his mystical encounter with Zarathustra, as with Crowley, is the demonic "transvaluation of values" and the enthronement of divinized-self as the final anti-Christ, anti-moral, anti-tradition, authority while earth becomes the divine kingdom of the totalitarian demonized Masters of the Universe.
 
In a larger context, this means that the absolute freedom (license) increasingly exercised by contemporary Western and American god-men and their masses of followers in the name of scientism, evolution, moral relativism, absolute equality, open-minded tolerance and man-made rights (i.e., "gay" marriage, pedophilia) is actually the destructive license which perverts the true meaning and purpose of morally-principled freedom. Absolute freedom enslaves god-men and their followers to their dark side, or sin nature, thus leading them into the anarchy of concupiscence and self-gratification issuing in hate, paranoia, violence, and murder.
 
The 19th century apocalyptic prophet Fyodor Dostoevsky foresaw the devastating consequences of absolute freedom that would usher in planetary spiritual socialism during the age of demonized god-men.
 
Out of the surfeit of arrogant conceit, self-indulgence, violence, hate, envy and murder exacerbated by blasphemy and unbelief said Dostoevsky, will emerge a new man, a miserable man anxious to be saved from himself and the madness of others, hence ready to surrender his absolute freedom for safety, earthly bread, peace, a soothed conscience and a modicum of comfort derived from sin sanctified by his Masters. (Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 179)
 
Demonized god-men and their followers will progress from the tyranny of sin and evil spirits to the tyranny of the Anti-Christ, the psychopath par excellence, for out of the shattered,
 
"... spiritual and social order emerges the new ethic of absolute submission to absolute power." (ibid)
 
And so begins the final chapter of man during the terrible reign of demonized god-men.

Demonic Darkness: America's Invisible Wave of Evil

Today many intellectuals and modern theologians slavishly follow after whatever passes for current trends in scientific and evolutionary theory, thus they believe the Genesis account ex nihilo, the supernatural, the fall, miracles, the Resurrection of Christ, hell, angels, demons and possession are out dated concepts.  Despite this, in 1967 Mortimer J. Adler, the guiding genius behind The Encyclopedia Britannica and Great Books of the Western World, predicted that belief in a spiritual reality would not only return but be considered orthodox science.  His prediction has come true, for today, Eastern-oriented occult pantheism (evolutionary New Age cosmic humanism (1) and esoteric neo-pagan materialism (evolutionary secular humanism) have nearly merged, making it difficult to distinguish one from the other.

Over the past three hundred years, the Western Christian tradition has slowly but steadily been eclipsed, first by scientific evolutionary materialism, now by Eastern-oriented scientific cosmic humanism which has infused and spiritualized the former, transforming it into an agency for the transmission of the naturalistic structure of the evolving universe of matter and psychic energy and other revelations from fallen angels and evil spirits.  This legion of disembodied beings call themselves everything from Transcended Masters to Maitreya, Semjase, 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 (2) 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 (3), goddess worship, shamanism, transcendental meditation and visualization (4), 'new' contemplative or centering prayer (5), the enneagram (6), labyrinth walking (7), yoga (8), Wicca (9), revitalized Norse paganism, transformational festivals (10), vampires (11), Ouija boards (12), poltergeists (13), 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)

The hugely popular "new" contemplative or centering prayer (5) is a hybrid drawn from prayer practices of the Christian contemplative heritage fused with Eastern mysticism. The hybrid version, 

"...originated in St Joseph's Abbey, a Trappist monastery in Spencer, Massachusetts. During the twenty years (1961-1981) when Keating was abbot, St Joseph's held dialogues with Buddhist and Hindu representatives, and a Zen master gave a week-long retreat to the monks. A former Trappist monk who had become a Transcendental Meditation teacher also gave a session to the monks. ....Centering prayer is essentially a form of self-hypnosis. It makes use of a "mantra," a word repeated over and over to focus the mind while striving by one's will to go deep within oneself. The effects are a hypnotic-like state..." (The Danger of Centering Prayer, Rev. John D. Dreher, Catholic Education Resource Center) 

In the foreword to Philip St. Romains book, "Kundalini Energy and Christian Spirituality," Keating acknowledges that kundalini energy is the focus of the "new" Christian contemplative prayer. He states:

"Since this energy [kundalini] is also at work today in numerous persons who are devoting themselves to contemplative prayer, this book is an important contribution to the renewal of the Christian contemplative tradition. It will be a great consolation to those who have experienced physical symptoms arising from the awakening of kundalini in the course of their spiritual journey ... Most spiritual disciplines world-wide insist on some kind of serious discipline before techniques of awakening kundalini are communicated. In Christian tradition ... the regular practice of the stages of Christian prayer ... contemplation are the essential disciplines..."  (Kundalini Energy (Serpent Power) Same as Contemplative Silence, lighthousetrailsresearch)   

Psychical researcher J.D. Pearce-Higgins, vice chairman of the Churches Fellowship for Psychical and Spiritual Studies (Great Britain) writes of the hazards of Ouija board (11) use and automatic writing:

"These apparently simple methods of attempting contact...are extremely dangerous. (People will become) obsessed or possessed by some...damaging spirit who has got control of them and won't let go.  They are compelled to go on with automatic writing---at all hours of day and night (and) may begin to hear...voices telling them to do stupid and filthy things; they are no longer master in the house of their own minds and souls."  (The Coming Darkness, John Ankerberg & John Weldon, pp. 129-130)

From England to Australia and New Zealand, from South America to E. Europe, Canada and the United States, occult  spirituality is quickly becoming the West’s dominant orthodoxy, leading America’s mainstream media to report:

Neopaganism Growing Quickly: Numbers Roughly Double Every 18 Months in United States, Canada, and Europe.” (Denver Post, June 26, 2008; How Evil Works, David Kupelian, p. 115)

Sorcery Sells, and the Young are Buying” Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 10, 2007 (ibid)

“Wicca is Believed to be One of the Fastest-Growing Religions Among High School and College Students” National Public Radio, May 13, 2004 (ibid)

In his book, “America’s Schools: The Battleground for Freedom,” Allen Quist warns:

New Age religion is now aggressively being taught in our nation’s public schools.” A model curriculum has been developed that “is clearly centered on pantheism.” “Much of what passes for environmental education and multiculturalism is really indoctrination in pantheistic/New Age theology. The ACLU and other similar organizations have no objections to (pantheistic indoctrination). It is only Christianity that these organizations object to.” (p. 51)

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)

It is well documented that perversions, murder, possession and other evils, including human sacrifice, occur in Western witchcraft, Satanism and Eastern mysticism (e.g., tantric yoga) as well as pagan and pantheist occult religion in general.  In his "Occultism, Witchcraft and Cultural Fashions," the noted cultural anthropologist Mircea Eliade of the University of Chicago refers to the interconnections between European witchcraft and Hindu Tantric yoga.  He argues that

"even a rapid perusal of the Hindu and Tibetan documents" reveals the connection: "As a matter of fact, all the features associated with European witches are---with the exception of Satan and the Sabbath---claimed also by Indo-Tibetan yogis and magicians.  They too are supposed to fly through the air, render themselves invisible, kill at a distance, master demons and ghosts, and so on.  Moreover, some of (them) boast that they break all the religious taboos and social rules; that they practice human sacrifice, cannibalism, and all manner of orgies, including incestuous intercourse, and that they eat excrement, nauseating animals, and devour human corpses.  In other words, they proudly claim all the crimes and horrible ceremonies cited ad nauseum in the western European witch trials."  (Psychic Forces, Chapter 22, "The Occult History of Parapsychology," Clifford Wilson and John Weldon, pp. 341-49)

The very popular Tantra Kundalini yoga is based on the occultic chakra system which teaches that a universal evolutionary energy (Kundalini Shakti, the Supreme Power; serpent power) coiled at the base of the spine flows through human beings and through all of creation, uniting everything above and everything below, thus acknowledging divinity in all things and all people. Through strenuous yoga and other occult techniques outlined in ancient and modern texts, Kundalini Shakti uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body.  During so-called kundalini arousal, which may last for months or even years, protracted insanity and/or demonization must be endured.  In the words of power yogi Muktananda:

"I was assailed by all sorts of perverse and defiling emotions....my breathing (became) disturbed...my abdomen would swell with air...my mind was sick with fear (my) thoughts became confused, meaningless.   My limbs and body got hotter and hotter....Then I felt a searing pain...I wanted to run away, but my legs were locked tight in the lotus posture.....Then...a moonlike sphere...came floating in (it) struck against my eyes and...passed inside me...I was terrified (but) still locked in the lotus posture (with) my head forced down and glued to the ground....I started to make a sound like a camel, which alternated with the roaring of a tiger (I went) completely insane (and jumped and hopped) like a frog (while) my limbs (shook) violently. (Later) I learned that this was a Hatha Yoga process effected by the Goddess Kundalini in order for Her to move up through the spinal column into the sahasrana (upper psychic center.)"  (Play of Consciousness, Swami Muktananda, pp. 75-81, 84-85, 88-89)  

With continued practice, surrender, and preparation, one day the kundalini current will reach full voltage and there will no longer be 'anybody home' but an unholy spirit residing in an empty shell of a body:

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity.  The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)."   Finally it happened---explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated.  Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels."   "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..."   (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45) 

Like "new" contemplative prayer and other occultisms, yoga does not liberate; it enslaves and binds.  It does not enlighten but brings confusion and insanity.  It makes people immune to redemption through Christ,

"Yoga does not open the door for the Holy Spirit, but for spiritist spirits."  (Occult ABC: Exposing Occult Practices and Ideologies, Kurt E. Koch, p. 259)

Occult (Demonic) Bondage

According to Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian and minister with extensive personal experience in counseling and delivering thousands of people held in occult bondage, modern theologians who follow current scientific trends would be shocked by how many of the so-called scientists and intellectuals they slavishly follow have turned to occultism and spiritism (sorcery) and become demonized as a result.  Be they scientist or otherwise, all who trespass into Satan's domain by committing sins of sorcery will be harassed by the powers of darkness, irrespective of whether they take the step consciously or unconsciously.   Every sin of sorcery (occultism) cuts a person off from the Holy God and opens the door to demonic bondage.  Any person who serves the devil (occult), will receive the devil's wages (Exod. 7:11-12; Lev. 19: 26, 32; Zech. 12:2; Mal. 3:5; Acts 8:16; Acts 16:16; 1 Sam. 28; 2 Chron. 10:13-14; Isaiah 2:6; 8:19; Jer. 27:9, 10; Gal. 5:20; 2 Tim. 3:8; Rev. 21:8; Rev. 22:15).   Thus when a person abandons the Holy Triune God through sins of sorcery, he abandons his inner person (mind, will, conscience) at the same time as seen in relation to psychological disturbances having the following predominant characteristics:

(1) Warped, distorted character: hard-edged egoism; uncongenial, dark nature.

(2) Extreme passions: hard-edged egoism, abnormal sexuality (sodomy, lesbianism, sadomasochism, bestiality, pedophilia, pederasty, zoophiles); violent temper, belligerence; tendencies to addiction; meanness and kleptomania; compulsive lying.

(3) Emotional disturbances; compulsive thoughts of murder and suicide, anxiety states.

(4) Possession with destructive urges, fits of mania; tendency to violent acts and crime

(5) Insanity.

(6) Bigoted attitude against Christ and God; conscious atheism; simulated piety; indifference to God’s word and to prayer; blasphemous thoughts; religious delusions.

The ultimate goal of fallen angels and evil spirits is degradation and desecration of mans' inner person, the spiritual part of him created in the image of the Holy God. So what are systematically defaced and desecrated are the mind, will, conscience and sense of good and evil. 

Demonic Darkness: America’s Invisible Wave of Evil

Carl A. Raschke is Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver specializing in Continental philosophy and the philosophy and theory of religion.  He is also America’s leading authority on subcultures of demonic darkness.  In his fully-documented work, “Painted Black” he puts together a terrifying puzzle to reveal the chilling facts and cases behind an invisible wave of evil working through the minds of children and adults and subsequently sweeping over and across our nation outwardly manifest in an alarming epidemic of violence and madness that Western therapeutic science explains away as hallucinations, genetic influences and chemical disturbances.   Such a posture, said Raschke, hinges on the most incredible delusion that the "symbol of the Devil does not at all mean what the symbol of the Devil has always meant…” (Painted Black, p.404).

According to Rashcke, demonic bondage does not always manifest itself in a will to do evil:

Many of today’s young satanists (are characterized) by a metaphysics of exhaustion and despair.  A culture of despair becomes ever easier pickings for the…child pornographers (and the) professional (satanic) terrorists themselves.  Satanism has already yielded a climate of fear in middle-class quarters where fear had never flourished before.” (p. 406)

A culture of “exhaustion and despair” also welcomes demonized perverse 'sex-educators' (14) and professional satanic terrorists like the 9/11 murderers and ISIS.

Where occult bondage manifests itself in a will to do evil it is seen in the recent Dark Knight movie murders (15) and in the following chilling account:

In a chilling 911 call, Texas teen Jake Evans spent 20 minutes calmly recounting how he shot and killed his mother and sister, calling himself “evil.” (Texas Teen Tells 911 It Was Weird to Kill His Mother and Sister, abcnews, Oct. 5, 2012)

It’s weird,” an even-voiced Evans told the 911 dispatcher. “I wasn’t even really angry with them. It just kind of happened. I’ve been kind of planning on killing for a while now.”  “I’ll never forget this. My sister, she came down the stairs and she was screaming and I was telling her that I’m sorry but to just hold still–that, you know, I was just going to make it go away,” he said. “But she just kept on freaking out, but finally she fell down, and I got her in the head about, probably, three times.” “Just to let you know, I hate the feeling of killing someone. I’m going to be messed up,” he told the operator." “I’m really worried about nightmares and stuff like that. Are there any type of medications for that and stuff?”

America's secularized culture is a spiritual vacuum into which innumerable dark psychic forces have flooded.  Most of the present destructive generation is sick, lawless, narcissistic, and undisciplined.   America, the dying leader of the world, bleeds from thousands of self-inflicted wounds as she marches toward her own destruction to the beat of unseen drummers.  

The clearest answer to the evil conditions of our times is found in the Bible.   We are living in the Last Days.  The final pages of history are now being read.  Our time,

"...can only be understood aright in the light of the prophetic word.  Satan is mobilizing all his forces for an all-out attack.  The demonic world has entered the final lap....To fail, therefore, to take our stand at the foot of the cross, to fail to build our house upon the Rock, is to be swept away by the turmoil of the End-Times.  We are living in days of a demonic nature!"  (Demonology Past and Present, Kurt E. Koch, p. 37)

Rise of the Global Scientific Dictatorship (Nimrods' New Tower)

In an impeccably researched essay, "Ascendancy of a Financial Criminal Elite," Prof. James Petras details the rise of a power elite which he describes as the super wealthy of America and Europe: 

"Never in the history of the United States have we witnessed crimes committed on the scale and scope of the present day by both private and state elites.....the super-wealthy and their families have as much as $32 trillion (USD) of hidden assets in offshore tax havens, representing up to $280 billion in lost income tax revenue! This study excluded such non-financial assets as real estate, precious metals, jewels, yachts, race horses, luxury vehicles and so on. Of the $32 trillion in hidden assets, $23 trillion is held by the super-rich of North America and Europe ."

 The super wealthy mainly consist of an amoral elite consortium of global technocratic corporatists and bankers:
 
"England's leading banks, including Barclay's and a host of others, have been identified as having rigged the LIBOR, or inter-bank lending rate, for years in order to maximize profits. The Bank of New York, JP Morgan, HSBC, Wachovia and Citibank are among scores of banks, which have been charged with laundering drug money and other illicit funds according to investigations from the US Senate Banking Committees. Multi-national corporations receive federal bailout funds and tax exemptions and then, in violation of publicized agreements with the government, relocate plants and jobs in Asia and Mexico ."  (Ascendancy of A Criminal Financial Elite, Global Research)

 In affirmation of  Petras well-researched conclusions, Karen Hudes, a former insider at the World Bank  reports that a treacherous global financial system dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve dominate the pillars of America's government and control the media to cover up its crimes:

"What is really going on is that the world's resources are being dominated by this group," she explained, adding that the "corrupt power grabbers" have managed to dominate the media as well. "They're being allowed to do it." (World Bank Insider Blows Whistle on Corruption, Federal Reserve, Alex Newman, New American, 22 May 2013)

Hudes, an attorney who spent some two decades working in the World Bank's legal department, has observed the machinations of the criminal network up close:

"I realized we were now dealing with something known as state capture, which is where the institutions of government are co-opted by the group that's corrupt... The pillars of the U.S. government – some of them – are dysfunctional because of state capture; this is a big story, this is a big cover up." (ibid)

This modern power elite are the spiritual heirs of Illuminist philosophies from the time of Babylon--- the Ancient Mysteries, Cabala, Egyptian Hermeticism, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnosticism, Luciferian Theosophy, esoteric Free Masonry and occult New Age spirituality.  Many of them are Luciferians said William Still in his classic work, "New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies." Still summarizes Luciferianism as an occult nature religion that teaches that man,
 
"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (Still, p. 27)
 
The goal of Illuminism is worldwide totalitarianism.  During the 20th century Illuminism took the form of scientific socialism and scientific communism.  Today it is Technocracy, a scientific dictatorship calling for the radical transformation of traditional Western economics, government, law, energy, Christianity, and humanity,  which is why it maliciously fosters the atheism, amorality, chaos, blood-letting and revolution necessary for the undermining and overthrow of already existing governments.  (Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, Patrick M. Wood)
 
The world is being actively transformed by an amoral power elite and their minions according to a very narrow economical/political/social philosophy called Technocracy, and it is impacting every segment of society in every corner of the world:

"....Technocracy is being sponsored and orchestrated by a global elite led by David Rockefeller's and Zbigniew Brzezinski's Trilateral Commission....Originally started in the early 1930s, Technocracy is antithetical to every American institution that made us into the greatest nation on earth.  It eschews property rights, obsoletes capitalism, hates politicians and traditional political structures, and promises a lofty utopian dream made possible only if engineers, scientists, and technicians are allowed to run society. When Aldous Huxley penned Brave New World in 1932, he accurately foresaw this wrenching transformation of society and predicted that the end of it would be a scientific dictatorship unlike anything the world has ever seen." (ibid, Preface, Technocracy Rising)

Huxley concluded that Technocracy produces scientific dictatorship designed to scientifically engineer, manipulate, dominate and control the worlds' wealth and resources and micro-manage every human being in every detail of his life.  The scientific and evolutionary system itself would become a god that was worshipped and questioning any aspect of it, such as the validity of evolution, or any decision or outcome would be tantamount to blasphemy.

 Technocracy would be imposed most successfully on people incapable of, or uninterested in understanding it.   Such people would fall prey most readily to psychological manipulation and conditioning that makes them accept the most flagrant violations of themselves, their children and reality because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening.

Green Economics

According to Patrick Wood, our existing price-based economic system is being reinvented with new and untested 'green' economics theories such as carbon footprints. Carbon footprints supposedly equal the amount of carbon dioxide allegedly produced by driving your car, running your refrigerator and small appliances, and cutting your grass, for example.  If you use too much, and your carbon footprint is too big, green Technocrats either want the government to punish you or ration the amount of energy you are allowed to receive. The ultimate goal is that the personal energy consumption of every human being should be closely monitored and controlled. 

Steve Milloy, author of the book Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life opens with a brief summary of what the “Green Movement” is really all about:

Green ideologues are bursting with an impatient zeal to begin dictating, through force of law, your mobility, diet, home energy use, the size of your house, how far you can travel, and even … how many children you can have … this is how the greens themselves describe their intentions … Living green is really about some else micro-regulating you ­– downsizing your dreams and plugging each one of us into a brand new social order for which we never bargained. It’s about you living under the green thumb and having the boundaries of your life drawn by others.”  (Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them, Steve Milloy p. 3) 

Green Law 

As the transformation of our political system of Constitutional Rule of Law issues in relativism, it serves as a license for installation of a system of autocratic fiat regulations invented and enforced by unelected and unaccountable green Technocrats.

Green Religion 

America's founding Christian-based worldview and moral system of Judeo-Christian ethics, having been consistently excluded from government, school, and law is being radidly supplanted with a Humanistic nature religion based on Transhumanism, Evolution, Scientism and Relativism.

The process of transformation has for many years been aided and abetted by weak, accommodating and apostate theologians such as the Hindu-pantheist evolutionary scientist Teilhard de Chardin.   Teilhard encouraged Christians to submit to the process of evolution because the promise of this living force is godhood through fusion with the substance of God:

"Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is a magnificent means of feeling more at one with God. In (the old, traditional form of Christianity), the universal domination of Christ could...still be regarded as an extrinsic and superimposed power. In a spiritually converging world, this 'Christic' energy acquires an urgency and intensity of another order altogether." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p. 590)

Christianity is being transformed into a syncretic green evolutionary nature religion.  The paganization of Christianity is funded by major globalist foundations such as the Carnegie Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Rockefeller Foundation, William and Flora Hewlitt Foundation, David and Lucille Packard Foundation, and Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.  All of these funders are tightly connected to members of the Trilateral Commission.  Over the years, prominent Trilateral membership has included such luminaries as Henry Kissinger, Paul Volker, Robert McNamara, Robert S. Ingersol, and Madeleine K. Albright.

Green URI

The United Nations sponsored United Religions Initiative was founded in 1993 by William Swing, Bishop of the Episcopal Church Diocese of California as an interfaith organization dedicated to binding Christianity and the nature religions of the world into one "whole thing," meaning a universal pagan spirituality touting the idea that all roads lead to heaven. In 2000 the URI co-sponsored the World Millennium Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders held at the United Nations in New York City.   Among the religions represented were Hinduism, Buddhism, Zorostrianism, Confucianism, Ba'hai, Christianity, Indigenous, Judaism, Shinto, Jainism, Sikhism, Islam and Taoism with a heavy representation of mystical eastern religions.  

Ted Turner delivered a key-note address denouncing his childhood Christian faith because,

....it was intolerant because it taught we were the only ones going to heaven." (ibid, p. 122)

The organizations and individual Technocrats who have drawn close to the URI are striking:

"The World Economic Forum, Earth Charter Initiative, Ted Turner, Ford Foundation, Dee Hock (inventor of the VISA credit card and founder and former CEO of VISA International), Maurice Strong (Canadian billionaire and organizer of the U.N.'s 1992 Rio Conference). and Bill Gates among others." (ibid, p. 122)

In "Maurice Strong---The Most Dangerous Man in the World," Tom DeWeese wrote:

"Maurice Strong and his buddies are the driving force behind a new age pagan religion known as Gaia. It is pure nature worship. Strong owns a 63 thousand acre ranch in Colorado called Baca Grande that will never be bothered by the Forest Service or the Army Corp of Engineers. Because Baca Grande is the Mecca for Gaia worshippers and mystics. Here, Strong has built a temple to a Babylonian Sun God. Baca Grande, Strong believes, is the “Vatican City” of the New World Order."

"Maurice Strong is also a director of the Temple of Understanding in New York City, where pagan rituals and earth worship include escorting sheep and cattle to the alter for a blessing. Elephants and camels walk the aisles. A soprano sax is used to create the sound of the wolf moaning its extinction at the hand of man. Here, Vice President Al Gore delivered a “sermon” as worshippers marched to the alter with bowls of compost and worms."

"This wacky scene is the basis for today’s environmental agenda that has grown way beyond a call for clean air and the recycling of plastic bottles and newspapers. In Maurice Strong’s Gaia- driven world – it’s OK for a beaver to build a dam – but not man. It’s OK for a bear to fish in the lake – but not man." 
(Liberty News Online)

In addition to its agenda to transform Christianity, the far-reaching tentacles of Technocracy include such programs as Sustainable Development, Green Economy, Global Warming/Climate Change, Cap and Trade, Agenda 21, Common Core State Standards, Conservation Easements, Public-Private Partnerships, Smart Growth, Land Use, energy Smart Grid, de-urbanization and de-population.

Technocracy is grounded on a mystical evolutionary pantheist cosmogony that views the earth as a whole living organism (Gaia) consisting of many interdependent parts (smaller whole things).  In this scheme of things, humanity is one "whole thing" without parts, meaning there are no individual persons, thus no individual rights because man is not a person created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons but rather a soulless product of evolution acting on matter over billions of years.
 
Technocrats are modern God-hating Nimrods intent upon building a New Age utopian kingdom on earth marked by pleasure, hedonism, sorcery, occult magic and man as god.  In his book, "Inside the New Age Nightmare," Randal Baer has collected chilling prophecies from New Age Transhumanists:

Ken Carey, a New Age author and channel (receiver of revelations from spirits) uses the biblical language of the sifting of wheat:

"The Great Day of Purification has begun, a short but essential cycle of division that will gather those who promote fear and violence (i.e., faithful, orthodox Christians and Jews) and separate them from this season of the world as chaff is separated from wheat at threshing."   (Capturing the Pagan Mind, Peter Jones, p. 299)

J. Randolph Price through his spirit guide, Asher, reveals that all who deny the divinity of man are of Antichrist and that,

"....nature will soon enter her cleansing cycle during which those of lower vibratory rates will be purified off the planet." (ibid)

Spirit Master controlled Technocratic Transhumanist Robert Muller, prophet of the U.N., father of Common Core Curriculum and former Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica speaks of the fate that will befall all politically incorrect thinkers, especially anti-evolutionists:

"...all those who hold contrary beliefs" to politically correct thought favored for the "next phase of evolution" will "disappear." A hellish fate awaits all who resist political and spiritual globalization, "...those who criticize the UN are anti-evolutionary, blind, self-serving people. Their souls will be parked in a special corral of the universe for having been retarding forces, true aberrations in the evolution and ascent of humanity." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 133)

Technocracy symbolizes the deep religious desires of contemporary God-hating Nimrods and like-minded travelers of the broad way who in their rejection of our Lord Jesus Christ and physical resurrection, seek autonomous self-creation, transcendence and self-redemption, thus are incarnations,

"....of the ancient, deeply religious endeavor 'to become like God' – infinitely wise, omnipotent, autonomous, and immortal." (Mircea Eliade, "The Forge and the Crucible: The Origins and Structures of Alchemy," Dr. Erdmann)

They endeavor to become like God but shall instead,

"...drink of the wine of the wrath of God and be tormented with fire and brimstone." (Rev. 14:10) And the devil and his legion who deceived them shall likewise be "thrown into the lake of burning sulfur..." (Rev. 20:10)

Evolutionism: The Worldview of Evil Spirits

According to Anthony Breznican,

"Star Wars VII has a title: The Force Awakens."   (Entertainment Weekly, insidemovies.ew.com, Nov 6, 2014) 

The Force is the ancient universal life force worshipped by ancient and modern mystical pantheists and pagans under a variety of names such as Serpent Power, Zoe, Vril, chi, prana, Lucifer, and Evolution.   It was the evolutionary scientist and Hindu-pantheist heretic Teilhard de Chardin who said that after millions of years of evolutionary progress, evolution was becoming aware of itself, hence "The Force Awakens." 

After more than eighty years of nearly unopposed evolutionary evangelization in the schools, media, seminaries, academia and elsewhere Gnostic progressives are finally at liberty to declare that evolution is a living "mind,"

"....enlarging its domain up the chain of species." The god evolution is the "universe...a mind that oversees, orchestrates, and gives order and structure to all things." (Algeny, Jeremy Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

Now that magic science and evolution reign supreme, occult progressive "god-men"  no longer feel like guests,

"..... in someone else's home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever." (ibid)

According to Robert Muller, the father of World Core Curriculum, now that evolution is "mind" highly evolved men are free to spiritually evolve into higher and higher forms, to become one with the 'divine:'

"Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the 'divine,' its transcendence into ever higher forms of life. Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine. This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity. Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age..." (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Robert Muller, father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)

".....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

From the post-flood world of ancient Babylon to our own, the majority of the world's people have lived under the tyranny of powers, principalities and various determinisms – karma, reincarnation, evolution, fates, furies, chance, cause, doom, natural selection, and genes. They believed that all events in the real world were predestined and controlled by unseen forces of the cosmos that the apostle Paul described as the elemental spirits of the universe.

When Jesus Christ God incarnate demonstrated His absolute control over the elements (Luke 8:24) the tyranny of determinism was cast down and utterly broken. In the fourth century Gregory of Nazianzen suggested that at the very moment when the Magi came to worship the child of Mary and Joseph, it was then that the tyranny of determinism was broken:

"From that moment onward, the cosmos has orbited around the newborn king...Christ is the logos – the word and the reason by whom all exists and to whom all is ordered." (American Babylon, Neuhaus, p. 226)

Determinism crept into the West when evil spirits entered into the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance. They came quietly, first to certain theologians who rejected Jesus Christ in favor of Hermetic magic, Babylonian Kabala, Eastern mysticism, reincarnation, evolution, karma and other occult traditions and determinisms, and then openly with the brazen claim that laws of matter and evolution ultimately govern the world and man.

With penetrating insight, Father Richard John Neuhaus connects modern evolutionary scientism to its' ancient spiritual foundations in astrology. In his book, "American Babylon," Neuhaus argues that astrological elemental spirits have been recast as,

"...evolutionary dynamics, life forces, or laws of nature." Though described as laws rather than spirits, these elemental "forces".... work their inexorable ways in cold indifference to reason, to will, to love, and to hope. In short, it is suggested that the elemental spirits are in charge and that human freedom is a delusion."(p. 226)

"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ." Colossians 2:8

According to Pastor Larry DeBruyn, the word "rudiments" (Greek, stoicheion) relates to the universe of matter and energy and is variously,

".... translated "elemental powers" (NAB), "elementary principles" (NASB), "basic principles" (NIV, NKJV), "evil powers" (NLT), and "elemental spirits" (ESV, NRSV). Translations indicate that stoicheion's meaning diverges between "principles" and "powers," between the "physical elements" constitutive of the cosmos or universe, or the "spiritual powers" that inhabit it. In 2 Peter 3:10, the first sense – that is, the "elements" which "shall melt with fervent heat" – is evident, while in Galatians 4:3 and 9, the other sense – that is, "world forces" which once "held in bondage" the Galatian believers – is evident." (The Supreme Supremacy of the Lord Jesus Christ, guardinghisflock.com)

The Worldview of Evil Spirits

The Bible emphatically affirms the reality of the occult world:

"The description of the universe as abnormal applies not only to the seen world that has fallen.  It applies also to an unseen world in which there is a devil and evil spirits who in their own rebellion against God have an active influence in the world and affairs of people."  (The Dust of Death: The Sixties Counterculture and How It Changed America Forever,  Os Guinness, p. 307)

In affirmation, the Apostle Paul wrote,

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm."  Ephesians 6:12

During the 1970s Satanism and possession became front page news 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 oppression and 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 evil spirits 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 theologians, millions of Americans and by extension, our nation.

The worldview of evil powers always takes the form of nature worship, or celebration of created things such as matter and energy as opposed to worship of the living, personal Creator Who created everything. Thus in support of the idea that living beings created themselves it is virulently anti-supernatural and Genesis account creation ex nihilo in favor of one dimensional naturalism and evolutionary cosmologies.

In one case, an evil spirit's evolutionary cosmology bespeaking the self-created "universe of matter" and human life was disclosed wherein,

"...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." (p. 395)

From the Big Bang (exploding cosmic egg) which supposedly created matter and energy in the demon's description of the universe as "self-creating" to inflationary in the description of the universe as a "self-developing thing" to Gaia as "Earth as self-protecting mother" the possessing demon's evolutionary cosmology is very similar to occult New Age spirituality.

Moreover, variations on the evil spirit's cosmology are affirmed and promoted by many science-obsessed Christians such as progressive creationist Hugh Ross, Pope Francis and pastor Tim Keller:

"The foundational documents of The Gospel Coalition clearly articulate a commitment to the historic, orthodox understanding of biblical inerrancy. Nevertheless, one of the cofounders of TGC, Tim Keller, has positioned himself to defend at least some versions of theistic evolution and progressive creationism (the distinction is not always clear). In a white paper published through BioLogos, Keller claims that the first chapter of Genesis is “exalted prose narrative,” and that, because of its literary genre, need not be interpreted literally....Keller is determined to torture the Genesis narratives on the rack of evolution. Not a word of his theory comes from the text; not a word of it is plausible without a prior and inflexible commitment to evolution."  (Matt Recker and The Gospel Coalition, Part 5: Inerrancy and Creationism, Kevin T. Bauder, Religious Affections Ministries,  October 24th, 2014)

Tim Keller is one of the founders of The Gospel Coalition, and if nothing else, said Bauder, the Coalition needs to be committed to a robust defense of the gospel against every error that would undermine its foundations:

" If The Gospel Coalition were fully committed to this task, it would have no room for Keller’s old-earth, progressive-creationist, theistic evolution."  

In his book, Malachi Martin highlights an important case involving David, a Catholic priest who became obsessed with the evolutionary scientism of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Teilhard's destructive influence is widespread today within transnational Trans-humanist circles, the U.N., the Catholic Church, and increasingly within the Protestant Church.

In "Teilhard de Chardin: Trojan Horse of Vatican II/Heretic Extraordinaire," Dr. J. P. Hubert wonders whether based on Teilhard's admission of a mystical encounter if his evolutionary science was 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."

America's Unfolding Spiritual Catastrophe

For over eighty-five years, America has been incrementally conquered by the same insanity-inducing demon of madness, hatred and violence that earlier took over Russia, China, Germany, and Italy.

This demon is mainly embodied within Enlightenment ideologies such as rationalism, progressivism, Darwinism, evolutionism, and socialism.  America's "scientifically endarkened" progressive Ruling Class is deeply oppressed and possessed by these evil isms.  Having rejected the biblical Triune God and the religious heritage of our civilization, they embrace instead evil ideologies of which Communism and Socialism are logical expressions. A new world order is what they seek, but in order that it can emerge, the still remaining remnants of America's Christian-based culture must be completely destroyed.

What this means is that the spiritual catastrophe that unfolded in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany is unfolding on America's stage.

Can this catastrophe be averted?

Repentance: The Only Way

Returning to David, prior to his obsession with Teilhardism he was destined to become a professor of anthropology at a Catholic university. But under the influence of Teilhardism, he came to see that the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, Adam and Eve as the first man and woman and parents of all mankind who fell and passed on Original Sin to all human beings were utterly contrary to modern scientific thinking and evolution.

Therefore David taught anthropology from a modern "evolutionary 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 breathtaking transformative effects of this teaching upon Jonathan, one of his students, a priest who now insisted that all the sacraments are "...no more than expressions of man's natural unity with the world around him."

David's eyes were suddenly opened and he 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)

Meanwhile, Jonathan left the church and quickly founded his own cult among wealthy Manhattan families. He preached that the universe and all people were evolving 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, the demon possessing Jonathan ridiculed David, saying they both believed the same things, therefore if Jonathan needed exorcism David needed it more.

Reeling in shock, David was led to an agony of soul-searching over the course of many weeks during which he re-examined and finally repented of the intellectual arrogance that led him to embrace Teilhardism and 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 evolutionary past rather than,

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

According to Martin, the evil spirit who had nearly succeeded in killing David's faith now taunted him that to return to faith would entail slavery of mind and will. But when a repentant 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)

Speaking through Nietzsche, the evil spirit calling itself Zarathustra had declared the death of the Christian God on behalf of all willful unbelievers, but now for David, "He's alive and I'm forgiven!" His faith in God, Christ, the 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)

The Pope, Extraterrestrials, Evolution, Islam, & the Coming New World Order

According to the traditional Catholic Family News, in 2007, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Cardinal of Buenos Aires, Argentina, invited the visiting Episcopal Bishop William Swing,

"... to bring his assorted syncretist colleagues to the Cathedral for an interfaith service with him. Swing’s group was part of the United Religions Initiative, and the purpose of the syncretic worship was to celebrate the URI’s 10th anniversary of its installation in Latin America." (Pope Francis and the United Religions Initiative, Cornelia R. Ferreira, Catholic Family News, 09/09/14)

Investigative reporter Lee Penn, a Catholic ex-Marxist, author of "False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion" writes that the most ambitious organization in today’s interfaith movement is the United Religions Initiative (URI), founded by William Swing, the Episcopal Bishop of California.

Penn reports that the URI is to a significant extent animated by New Age Luciferic-spirituality and adds that evolution, openly affirmed by Pope Francis, is absolutely central to New Age theology. 

For all forms of evolutionary thinking God is irrelevant:

 "If He exists, He has nothing essential to do with a world which has evolved out of its own inner forces and thus is a law unto itself. The God-hypothesis is thus only retained by persons who are trying to maintain a formal but nonessential relationship between Christianity and evolution." (The Mythology of Science, by Rousas John Rushdoony, p. 27)

When Pope Francis addressed the Pontifical Academy of Sciences at the Vatican he affirmed the Big Bang (Cosmic Egg) and evolution.  Evolution is an inverted exegesis that deconstructs and reduces man in the spiritual image of the Trinity to evolved hominid, negates the Fall, and makes the Son of God (John 1:10) responsible for evil and suffering.   As well, because evolution posits relentless change it is a form of relativism or nihilism that abominates the Revealed Word of God.  Furthermore, the Pope endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life,

"....which he refers to as “beings of the universe” - has evolved in ways that is consistent with the plans of “God the creator.” He explained how the Catholic Church views the Big Bang and evolution as scientific processes underpinned by “the plan of the creator.” Pope Francis has officially moved the Catholic Church away from the idea of “God the creator..."

United Religions Initiative, Evolution & Extraterrestrials

The URI is a United Nations project:

" It was heralded in June 1995 by Bishop Swing at the occult, earth-worshipping interfaith service he was invited to conduct for the UN, honoring the 50th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter. Attending the service in San Francisco’s Episcopal Grace Cathedral were political luminaries and representatives of all religions, including Britain’s Princess Margaret, Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, Polish President Lech Walesa, UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Archbishop Renato Martino (Vatican nuncio to the UN), and Archbishop John Quinn of San Francisco." (ibid, Ferreira, Catholic Family News, 09/09/14)

The URI is meant to be for the world's nature religions, paganized Christianity, and modern mystery religions what the United Nations is for all nations of the world.  Its purpose is to be the World Church, the Universal One-Spirituality for the coming New World Order, a pantheistic global community comprising a one-world government and one-world religion or church.  

According to Penn, the URI is a syncretic stew of evolutionary Christianity, Luciferian Theosophy, Spiritism, revamped Ancient Mysteries, Wicca, Goddess worship, neo-paganism and adulation of Lucifer. (False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion, Lee Penn, p. 437)

The URI has attracted a disparate group of activists and powerful supporters. For example, the liberal Catholic theologian Hans Kung, the Dalai Lama, progressive churchmen from the People's Republic of China, pro-gay evolutionary Episcopalians, radical Muslims, feminist witches, super wealthy capitalist foundations, the Club of Rome, the Temple of Understanding and the Lucis Trust, formerly called Lucifer Publishing. Prominent supporters of the URI and globalism include occultist Robert Muller (former UN assistant secretary general), 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 spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh, among others. Penn notes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a progressive vision of spiritualized totalitarianism that includes:

1. Praise for Lucifer as the light-bearer and giver of wisdom.

2. Proclaiming that we humans are gods and that death is not real

3. Advocacy for extreme population control, including eugenics and euthanasia

4. Utter contempt for traditional religions — with concentrated scorn directed at faithful Judaism, orthodox evangelical Protestantism, and orthodox Roman Catholicism

5. Forecasting a pending (and for them, desirable) "selection" of mankind, in which the progressives enter the New Age and the 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)

Speaking through Hubbard, her spirit guide "Christ" prophesied in 1995 that the Rider of the Pale Horse will use the "sword" as one of his means to "kill those who choose to remain self-centered." (ibid, p. 322)

Revelations from the gods of this world

Speaking through Alice Bailey, the demon-master Djwhal Khul predicted back in the 1940s that a spiritual hierarchy would:

"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," spirit "Masters will walk openly among men...openly guiding and directing the affairs of humanity." (False Dawn, p. 262)

From the spirit-channeled revelations called Course in Miracles taught by New Age High Priestess Oprah Winfrey to the spirit-revelations of Neale Donald Walsh, and revelations received from the Space Brothers by UFO contactees, spirits going by a variety of names are indeed speaking and "sharing secrets"....in local bookstores, movies and right on TV. 

Moving from the Royal Society (the national academy of science in the UK) to NASA, the European Space Agency,  UN office for Outer Space Affairs,  Pope Francis and the Vatican's progressive astronomers, excited discussions abound, all centered upon the existence of highly evolved Space Brothers (aliens) and their anticipated arrival here on earth. Lord Martin Rees, President of the Royal Society announced that aliens may be "staring us in the face" in a form unrecognizable to humans. (Official Disclosure: Prepare for Contact, Donna Anderson, officialdisclosure.com)

Longtime UFO researchers however, are no longer excited but alarmed. Their research shows that modern alien abductions resemble ancient stories of demons and demonic possession. The similarity was not lost on UFO research-scientist John Keel:

"Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology. It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have...coexisted with man throughout history....The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not..identical, to the UFO phenomenon. Victims of demonomania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees..." (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 260)

Ominous Harbingers

In 1994, the Vatican hosted part of its Sixth General Assembly, the first interfaith conference ever held at the Holy See. Speakers included John Paul, several cardinals, Hans Küng and liberation theologian Gustavo Gutierrez:

"Unlike Pope John Paul’s indirect support of the one-world church, Cardinal Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, the future Pope Francis, in the style we have now come to expect, had no qualms about ignoring the existing Vatican position. He openly encouraged the United Religions — an ominous harbinger of the direction of his papacy?" (ibid, Ferreira, Catholic Family News)

First it was Bishop Swing and the U.N.'s Interfaith Initiative, then evolution, Big Bang, and man as evolved hominidNow under Pope Francis Catholics are expected to embrace Islam as a religion of peace despite that Islam reduces Jesus Christ to a mortal and Allah is an impersonal singularity knowable only to mystical Imams, meaning Islam is peaceful if and when Imams say it is.  (Is there Room in the Catholic Church for those who don't Believe Islam is a Religion of Peace? Robert Spencer, FrontPageMagazine, Aug. 15, 2016)

Behind the backs of undiscerning yet faithful Protestants and Roman Catholics a global interfaith leviathan influenced and directed by a hierarchy of spirits and consisting of progressive Roman Catholics, Protestants, Muslims, "gays," neo-pagans, witches, and occultists is positioning itself as the spiritual face of a globally pantheist NWO preparing the way for the Antichrist.  

Isn't it time to wake up and ask what accord the Bride of Christ has with Belial (Interfaith, Big Bang, evolutionary cosmogonies, fallen angels posing as extraterrestrials, Islam)? Or what portion a believer shares with unbelievers?   2 Cor. 6:15

Occult Evolution: Antediluvian, Babylonian, and Modern Expressions

In "The attack on biblical creation in UK schools continues," Phil Robinson reports that in the dechristianized U.K. unrelenting attacks against special creation (Genesis account) display a level of aggressive intolerance that is hard to stomach, coming as they do from self-proclaimed scientifically-enlightened ‘voices of reason.’  Some schools have already banned the teaching of special creation in favor of evolutionary science.   (creation.com, Mar. 9, 2014)
 
Other shrill 'voices of reason' go so far as to connect special creation to mental illness and child abuse. During a radio interview in Australia famous physicist and atheist propagandist Lawrence Krauss said that while in the United States recently, he stated that "teaching creationism is child abuse and I think it is." (Prayer News, a publication of Creation Ministries, Apr. 2014)

Throughout the West and here in America a slash-and-burn operation conducted against the Genesis account, particularly its' literal and historical elements, is justified by the false idea that evolution is science, thus intolerance of special creation is often presented as a ‘science versus religion’ or ‘faith versus reason’ issue.   So successful has this war of attrition been that younger generations of Westerners and Americans have been disconnected from both Western history and its’ founding Christian-based worldview, thus like seedlings recently popped up from the soil are unconcerned that special creation, where the ultimate source of life, being and unalienable rights are found, has nearly been displaced by anti-human pagan conceptions positing billions of years of evolutionary transformism from lower kinds of things to higher and higher kinds of things--- even non-human kinds of things:

 "For us, the best way to create new (‘artificial’) life forms and intelligence is to allow them to emerge through evolution, as nature does, only in much shorter timeframes and with much greater efficiency and variety.”

 “For conscious evolution to be successful, we need to observe and understand the actual workings of nature, in all its dynamism, to the point of profound reverence, or ‘worship.’ This is what I call extreme nature-worshipping… From the perspective of extreme nature-worshipping, the real significance of Darwin’s evolutionary theory is not that humans descended from lower species, but that we can continue to evolve.” (Cosmic Beings: Transhumanist Deism in Ted Chu’s Cosmic View, Institute for Ethics & Emerging Technology, Giulio Prisco)
 
The vicious name-calling, seething resentment toward and censorship of the six day creation account and of all who profess and teach it should raise the eyebrows of any rational thinking person.  If evolution really is a fact of science then why the irrational name-calling, ridicule, scorn, shunning, resentment, intolerance and demonization?
 
The answer is that the zealous worshipper of evolution is the Spirit of our age that emerged out of the Renaissance whose answer to the Lord Jesus Christ is the Cross (crucify Him) and whose fulfillment will be the Wicked One. (2 Thess. 2:1-8) 

 From the Renaissance to our own time the Spirit has been transgressing, blaspheming, and departing that it need not obey His voice.   Like a dog returning to its own vomit, the Spirit has returned to its first love: the cult of demons in the Godless universe of matter, psychic energy, and animated forces where time is changed, past history rendered meaningless, and the liberated Spirit imbibes the cup of wrath, an intoxicating mixture of Babylonian Mysteries, incantations, spiritism, Gnosticism, sorcery, witchcraft, Hermetic magic, Kabbalah, reincarnation, astrology, and other devilish occult traditions. 
 
The Book of Revelation pinpoints Babylon as the post-flood center of an occult pagan Mystery religion based on advaitic monism, science of magic transformism, exalted priesthood, gnosis, secret initiations, psychic-powers, familiar spirits, androgyny, sexual perversions, and other evils.  

Babylon embraced the Great Lie. Its inhabitants claimed the title, "I AM." The root source of this evil religion and its occult power was the Great Dragon himself....Lucifer:
 
".... the Great Lie (is) the foundation stone of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sufism, Jainism, Sikhism, Taoism, the Kabala, the Greek Hermetic, Eleusinian and Gnostic beliefs, Neo-Platonism, all the occult creeds from Theosophy and the Masonic orders to the Rosicrucian's (and) the New Age movement. The Great Lie is...the belief that man is God, that his true identity is the immortal self...that as God, he will never die (and) Sin and depravity are...illusions since this inner divinity is at man's core." (The Great Lie, Tal Brooke, SCP Journal, Vol. 29:2-29:3, 2005)
 
Though the Spirit of our age claims the title “I AM” it nevertheless follows after and falls down before other fascinating men: theoreticians of evolutionary science, nature philosophy and evolutionary pagan theology. These charismatic Pied Pipers are possessed of surpassing powers of persuasion and inflexible determination of will to which the Spirit assigns more honor than to anything else. 
 
The Spirit has usurped the throne of the Word Incarnate (John 1:1) because He is not good, not just or benevolent but a devil, an evil Tyrant Who, with His infliction of suffering in this life and eternal punishment in the next must be deposed. (Psalm 2:2-3) 

 Blaming our Lord for their own sins the proud, self-righteous Spirit of rebellion, hypocrisy and negation says to Him, “…you are not my father.”  My father is the god of forces, therefore:
 
"I am I, I come out of myself, and in choice and action I make myself."
(Daniel Bell, quoted by Herbert Schlossberg in "Idols for Destruction," p. 43)

 In the final analysis, the Spirit of our age is the “striving human will” seeking desperately to launch itself,
 
"...into minor godhood in an evolving cosmos through the mechanisms of directed spiritual evolution, spiritualized science and spirit contact." The 'new' spirituality now presents itself as the "rightful replacement for the Revealed Word (and) proclaims its spiritual liberation from the worldview that informs Christianity and its freedom from (the) personal and wholly other God.  But this new way of self-salvation (is) little more than the refurbishing of an ancient spiritual mistake."  (The Making of the New Spirituality: the Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition, James A. Herrick, p. 279)

 “As it was in the days of Noah…”
 
The ominous signs of this age are obvious, said the English theologian G.H. Pember (1837-1910) in his book, "The Antichrist Babylon and the Coming Kingdom."  Just as it was during the pre-flood generations, open intercourse with demons (spiritism) is now common throughout Christendom and even in Russia.   In France it is the national pastime.   The apostles of the powers of darkness are everywhere proclaiming their scientific and evolutionary theories demonstrating that the world created itself and had no need of a Creator (p. 60) while the miseries which have resulted from sin,
 
“....are blasphemously charged upon the Almighty, Who so loved the world as to give His son for it (but is now) impiously forbidden to curb and discipline the rebels who owe their existence to the breath of His mouth.  And when we see such men as John Stuart Mill (and) John Morley, the late Chief Secretary for Ireland...guiding their fellows to defiant insubordination, we can scarcely wonder that Bradlaugh...said, ‘This world might have been happy, had not the shadow of God fallen upon it.” (pp. 35-36, 1888)
 
Rise of Occult Evolutionary Science 
 
In the impeccably researched, "The Making of the New Spirituality," James Herrick observes that the scientific tradition in Renaissance Europe developed around three basic approaches: the organic, the mechanical and the magical.   It was magical and/or occult science that provided the greatest impetus for scientific exploration. (p. 45)

 C.S. Lewis underscores this point in “The Abolition of Man:”
 
You will even find people who write about the sixteenth century as if Magic were a medieval survival and Science the new thing that came in to sweep it away. Those who have studied the period know better. There was very little magic in the Middle Ages: the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are the high noon of magic. The serious magical endeavour and the serious scientific endeavour are twins: one was sickly and died, the other strong and throve. But they were twins. They were born of the same impulse. I allow that some (certainly not all) of the early scientists were actuated by a pure love of knowledge. But if we consider the temper of that age as a whole we can discern the impulse of which I speak.”
 
In "God and the Knowledge of Reality," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), reveals the 'temper of that age' as a spirit of rebellion against the Christian God, and this is why occult science and evolutionary thinking provided the greatest impetus. During the Renaissance, certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Kabbalah texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science – the divine technology or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through ritual procedures (spiritual evolution) is the best proof of the divinity of Christ. In other words said Molnar,
 
".....by the time of the Renaissance the esoteric texts of the first centuries A.D. had acquired in scholarly and humanist circles an unparalleled prestige, confronting as equals the texts held sacred by the church. In Pico's estimation, 'nulla est scientia que nos magis certificet de divinitate Christ quam magia et Cabala' (there is no science that would prove for us Christ's divinity better than magic and the Cabala.)" (pp. 78-79)
 
Hermetic magic and Jewish Kabbalah are ancient Mystery Religion traditions, as affirmed by G. H. Pember in his classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages."   Pember thoroughly examines the role of fallen angels in connection with the magic (occult transformism) they taught to pre-flood generations and compares them to the explosion of spiritism (open intercourse with evil spirits), astrology, the Mysteries and other occult traditions sweeping over Christendom.

Pember writes that the Mysteries are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by the powerful occult brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given,

"...to the initiates of the Hermetic, Orphic, Eleusinian, and Cabbalistic mysteries, and were familiar to Chaldean Magi, Egyptian Priests, Hindu Occultists, Essenes, Therapeutae Gnostics, and Theurgic Neo-Platonists." (Pember, pp.243-244)
 
Hermetic Magic

Hermeticism is an ancient Egyptian secret magic tradition based on a set of fourteen books known
collectively as the Corpus Hermeticum attributed to a mysterious figure known as Hermes Trismegistus. Implied in Hermeticism is an evolutionary process of magical transformism (spiritual evolution) moving from one kind of lower thing to another kind of higher thing:
 
"Human beings are themselves the product of a long spiritual evolutionary process that moves from 'creeping things' to fish, mammals, birds and then people.  Humans can---through occult knowledge and extraordinary ability---continue this evolutionary process and become daemons, then gods, and finally planets or stars." (The Making of the New Spirituality: The Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition, James A. Herrick, p. 40)
 
With respect to Hermes identity, researchers of antiquity are divided.  Some believe Hermes was a mythical figure.  Others argue he was Ham or his son Cush.  The historian Samuel Shuckford argues that Hermes was Pathrusim, king of Thebais, the son of Mizraim, the son of Ham.   His Egyptian name was Tyoth or Thoth.  (The Sacred and Profane History of the World Connected, 1808)

 In any case, it was Thoth-Hermes who instructed his brothers in the arts and science magic of alchemy or transmutation of a lower kind of thing into a higher kind of thing. For example, after a lengthy transformative process out of the eternally existing divine abyss (primordial matter), the self-created Sun-God Ra boasted that he “came into being from primordial matter.”  He made all the forms under which he “appeared by means of the god-soul” which he raised up out of Nu, primordial matter. (The Long War Against God, Dr. Henry Morris, p. 243)

 Occult Kabalah
 
"The Kabalah is the key to the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists.” (Occult Mason Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 626)
 
Like its’ Hermetic counterpart, Kabala implies a process of evolutionary transformism:
 
“...the older Enoch book (gives) a fuller insight into the "Merkabah" and "Bereshit" lore of the ancients than the "Hekalot," which present but fragments, while the central figure of the Cabala, Meṭaṭron-Enoch, is seen in ch. lxx.-lxxi. in a process of transformation.” (Cabala, Jewish Encyclopedia) 

According to Helena Blavatsky, one of the key architects of Luciferian New Age pantheism, Kabalah derived,
 
“.... from the older secret doctrines concerning divine things and cosmogony, which were combined into a theology after the time of the captivity of the Jews in Babylon. All the works that fall under the esoteric category are termed Kabalistic.” (Blavatsky, Theosophical Glossary, p. 168)
 
The godless cosmogony of Kabala teaches the gradual condensation or evolutionary progression of a primal substance into visible matter.  This is a fundamental, 
 
"... doctrine of the Cabala (and) is the ancient Semitic conception of the ‘primal ocean,’ known to the Babylonians as ‘Apsu’ and called by the Gnostics βύθος =  (Anz, ‘Die Frage nach dem Ursprung des Gnostizismus,’ p. 98).

The Chaldean occult science and pagan Mystery Religion was embraced by apostate Jews during their captivity in Babylon and delivered to subsequent generations of initiates by word of mouth. According to Blavatsky, these initiates of the Chaldean tradition in the centuries before Christ were known as Tanaim:

 "The kabalist is a student of ‘secret science’, one who interprets the hidden meaning of the Scriptures with the help of the symbolical Kabala… The Tanaim were the first kabalists among the Jews; they appeared at Jerusalem about the beginning of the third century before the Christian era… This secret doctrine is identical with the Persian wisdom, or ‘magic’.” (Ibid. p.167)
 
The Essenes were also associated with the Kabala. The Jewish Encyclopedia describes the cabalistic practices of the Essenes, which were Judaized elements of Eastern mystical traditions:
 
So, too, were the Essenes familiar with the idea of the journey to heaven…and they were also masters of angelology. The practice of magic and incantation, the angelology and demonology, were borrowed from Babylonia, Persia, and Egypt; but these foreign elements were Judaized in the process, and took the form of the mystical adoration of the name of God and of speculations regarding the mysterious power of the Hebrew alphabet …, ‘the name of God creates and destroys worlds’, to become, finally, foundations of the philosophy of the ‘Sefer Yetzirah."  (Cabala, Jewish Encyclopedia)
 
According to Blavatsky the Essenes were pagan priests of the Greek goddess, Diana of Ephesus, where the Tanaim had established a college for instruction in the Chaldean mystery religion:
 
Essenes... had many Buddhistic ideas and practices; and it is noteworthy that the priests of the Great Mother at Ephesus, Diana-Bhavani with many breasts, were also denominated... It was at Ephesus where was the great College of the Essenes and all the lore the Tanaim had brought from the Chaldees... Essenes, believed in reincarnation.” (Theosophical Glossary, pp. 113-14; The Secret Doctrine, Vol. II, p. 111n)
 
Eventually Alexandria, Egypt became the epicenter of cosmological and pagan religious ideas as well as the intellectual meeting point between Greek Mystery Religion/Hermetic magic initiates and nature sages and guardians of Kabala.  After the fall of Jerusalem, Alexandria was the center from which occult pagan Jews would disguise their mystery tradition in Christian terminology and attempt to penetrate the fledgling Church with heresy. 

 One of the primary tactics employed by Cabbalist pagan Jews for this purpose is the same one employed by their modern evolutionary Gnostic pagan counterparts.   It involves the reduction of the Genesis account, particularly the first three books, to allegory and myth, a ploy that eliminates the physical Adam from which all people descended and the sin that he transferred to the rest of the human race. This strikes directly at the heart of the Gospel: the need for the ‘last Adam’ to provide for us an escape from the wrath of God against sin incurred by the first Adam.  In this way, not only is the work of Christ on the cross rendered superfluous, meaning the heart of the faith is ripped out, but God is made responsible for sin and evil. (1 Peter 3:18-22; 1 John 2:22)
 
Long ago, the teachings of some of the early Church Fathers regarding the apostasy toward the end of the church age predicted the reappearance of this evil tactic. The fathers categorized it a Gnostic pagan heresy.
 
In "Heresies 6.10" Hippolytus writes that the Gnostic pagan Simon Magus feigned faith and allegorized much of Scripture, especially Genesis, to support his evolutionary Hermetic and Gnostic occult pantheist teachings.   Church Fathers Ireneaus, Tertullian and Clement of Alexandria reveal that Gnostic cult leader Marcion rejected the Old Testament, taught that the God of the Old Testament and his prophets are evil, made God the author of sin and removed all references that Christ was Creator (John 1:1)   (Ireneaus, "Against Heresies 1.26, 5.1," Tertullian "Against Marcion 2.17," Clement of Alexandria, "Against Heresies 4.29)

 In conclusion, the Babylonian Mystery Religion is the mother of evolutionary Cabala, Gnosticism and all other occult pagan traditions:
 
“....especially does Gnosticism testify to the antiquity of the Cabala. Of Chaldean origin... Gnosticism was Jewish in character long before it became Christian... Gnosticism—that is, the cabalistic ‘Hokmah’ (wisdom)—seems to have been the first attempt on the part of the Jewish sages to give the empirical mystic lore, with the help of Platonic and Pythagorean or Stoic ideas, a speculative turn; hence the danger of heresy…of which the systems of Philo, an adept in Cabala...show many pitfalls...Jewish gnosticism unquestionably antedates Christianity, for Biblical exegesis had already reached an age of five hundred years by the first century C.E.  Judaism had been in close contact with Babylonian-Persian ideas for at least that length of time, and for nearly as long a period with Hellenistic ideas. Magic, also, which,...was a not unimportant part of the doctrines and manifestations of gnosticism, largely occupied Jewish thinkers. There is, in general, no circle of ideas to which elements of gnosticism have been traced, and with which the Jews were not acquainted.”  (Cabala, Jewish Encyclopedia)

 Building  the New Tower of Babylon

 In the essay, “The Paganization of Biblical Studies,” Dr. Peter Jones, director of truthxchange and adjunct professor of Westminster Seminary CA., writes that the books of the evolutionary Gnostic pagan Presbyterian heretic Lloyd Geering, Emeritus Professor of Religious Studies at Victoria University, are promoted by the most powerful element of the Spirit of our age—the international occult New Age Luciferian elite-pagans---as programmatic templates for the future utopian pagan community from the point of view of Christian apostasy and socialism undergirded by evolutionary pantheist orthodoxy.

According to Geering, the world's future culture will be post-Christian, global, religiously pagan and evolutionary.  This agenda is remarkably similar to that of Teilhard de Chardins’ disciple, the ex-Roman Catholic Thomas Berry in his book, "The Great Work" which is also being implemented through texts of the UN's global programs.

The rising New World Order will be post-Christian because evolution proves that human beings, as they evolved out of primordial matter, created language, then symbols, then religious explanations and God Himself.  Therefore tomorrow's culture will be pluralistic, syncretistic, relativistic and poly-gendered because evolution integrates all scientific, cultural, religious, economic and human gender into one worldwide anthill thus when the global society emerges from the evolutionary process,

"…it will require humanity to develop a new consciousness and a new form of spirituality" because "the new story which has become basic to the global world begins with a new word or idea...evolution.” (ibid, Jones)

Like its’ mother, Mystery Babylon, the scientifically-enlightened ‘new' global religion of evolutionary transformism is occult pantheist advaita monism, which means that as an ancient impersonal god-force is within the cosmos, earth, human beings, rats, weeds, tumble bugs, cancer and everything else then all things are essentially 'one.'  Since the god-force is within all things it is within the demonically 'illumined' consciousness of every spiritually evolved initiate and adept.

This being the case, by means of trance states, brain-altering drugs, transcendental meditation, visualization, channeling, Zen Buddhism, Kundalini yoga, tantra, and other occult ways, the initiate can channel the god-force within thereby becoming a little god who controls matter because he controls mind. The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man.

This way of thinking is captured by Orwell in his book, “Nineteen Eighty-Four” in which negation of the physical world is an integral part of the social and political philosophy of Big Brother and his despotic Party. At one stage in the book, Winston stumbles upon the shocking realization that in the end the Party would announce that two plus two made five because the logic of Big Brothers’ position required it since the existence of external reality was denied by his philosophy.  Thus when the Thought Police agent O’Brien tortures Winston for politically incorrect “wrong thought” he states,

“We control matter because we control the mind.  Reality is inside the skull.  You will learn by degrees, Winston.  There is nothing that we could not do.  Invisibility, levitation---anything.  I could float off this floor like a soap bubble if I wish to….You must get rid of these nineteenth-century ideas about the laws of Nature.  We make the laws of Nature.” (Orwell, “The New Spirituality and its Hallmarks, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 30:4-31:1, 2007, p. 19)

Evolving Toward Catastrophe

In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called 'the New Age Bible,' Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) admits that the ‘new age’ evolutionary pantheism and occult technologies being employed throughout America were at one time the private domain of ancient initiates.   In fact, as Constance Cumbey reveals in her thoroughly researched book, "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow," many New Age historians claim their occult religion and techniques originated in Atlantis and afterward were preserved in the ancient land of Babylon,

 "...and surrounding Plains of Shinar and from there disseminated throughout the earth, including Taoist doctrines of China, Mayan-Aztec teachings of Mexico and Central/South America; Great Spirit teachings of the American Indians, Hindu/Buddhist teachings of Asia, etc." (pp. 250-251)

 After the Flood, said Shuckford, while the faithful Noah remained in the East and established the worship of the true God, eighty years after the Flood his rebellious son Ham and his sons together with other family members departed and eventually settled in the plains of Shinar where they resolved to build a tower, a monument to their own pride, vanity, ambition and rebellion against God. (ibid, p.94)

It was Noah’s son Ham, according to ancient Church Father Clement, who  ‘preserved’ and revived the Mystery Religion of ‘Atlantis’ and its attendant evils:
 
"Fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man. After the flood Ham the son of Noah...discovered this and taught it to his sons.  This became ingrained into the Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians.  Ham died shortly after the fall of the Tower of Babel.  Nimrod, called Ninus by the Greeks, was handed this knowledge and by it caused men to go away from the worship of God and go into diverse and erratic superstitions and they began to be governed by the signs in the stars and motions of the planets." (Recognitions of Clement 4.26-29)

In his well-researched book, "Ancient Post-Flood History," Ken Johnson, Th.D., reports that the sons of Ham persuaded the people to accept that the true God was merely an impersonal creative force within all of nature, making man the highest form of life/god.  Through the power of persuasion, Ham and his sons revived magical evolutionary transformism, pantheism and idolatry. (pp. 47-48)

 Eventually Ham was deified and worshipped by later pagans as the gods Cronus and Jupiter:

"Ham is represented by many writers as a very wicked, immodest, and profligate creature: Berosus (i) makes him a magician, and to be the same with Zoroast or Zoroastres, and speaks of him as the public corrupter of mankind; and says that he taught men to live as before the flood, to lie with mothers, sisters, daughters, males and brutes, and creatures of all sorts; and that he actually did so himself, and therefore was cast out by his father Janus, or Noah, and got the name of "Chem", the infamous and immodest..." Upon seeing his father's nakedness Ham,  "told his two brethren without; he went out of the tent after he had pleased himself with the sight... and in a wanton, ludicrous, and scoffing manner, related what he had seen: some of the Jewish Rabbins (k), as Jarchi relates, say that Canaan first saw it, and told his father of it; and some say (l), that he or Ham committed an unnatural crime with him; and others (m), that he castrated him; and hence, it is supposed, came the stories of Jupiter castrating his father Saturn, and Chronus his father Uranus."    Genesis 9:22 Gill's Exposition

History did not begin after billions of years of evolution when primitive hominids swung down from the trees and discovered how to scratch crude symbols onto rocks.    Nor did it begin after the Flood.  At least 2,000 years of human existence preceded the Flood, meaning that when Noah and his family entered the ark they carried at least one hundred years of pre-flood memories, traditions, technology, and superior knowledge. Their world view was shaped by the historical Adam and Eve and the generations of their offspring.   Thus Noah and his family brought with them not only the knowledge of the personal God, Special Creation, fall of man, the Deluge, sacrifice to God for the propitiation of sin, the arts of weapon-making and warfare, knowledge of letters, symbols, math, architecture, science, cosmetics, and agriculture  but knowledge of  first-hand encounters with Watchers, their occult teachings, the Nephilim, and primeval pantheism tied to magic, spiritism, herbal abortifacients, human and animal sacrifice, drinking of blood, males marrying males and even beasts, and many other evils. 

 In affirmation, the eminent researcher of antiquity James Bailey said:

 “…human history can now be hesitantly traced back as an unbroken narrative to 4000 B.C….the picture emerging…is one of the Fall of Man in historic terms as well as his rise; it is a picture…more of degradation than of success; it is a picture of monotheism breaking down into polytheism and of the struggle to return to monotheism.  The establishment view of the history of religion gradually progressing from animism to polytheism (then) to monotheism is the reverse of facts.” (“The God-Kings and the Titans: The New World Ascendancy in Ancient Times 1973, p. 296) 

Four thousand years before Christ were the antediluvian generations and the Watchers in the post-flood world, making the billions of years of evolutionary transformism a fabulous fable.  It is neither ‘new’ (Ecclesiastes 1: 9-11) nor scientific except in the sense of pre-flood and post-flood occult science and attendant traditions revised and revamped for our own time, as Geering unhappily discovered. 

 Dr. Jones writes that Geering was surprised when he found out that the ‘New Spirituality’ has "links with pre-monotheistic...nature religions," leading Jones to wryly comment that in an odd turn of events,

 "....contemporary spiritual' evolution goes backwards!  Biblical theism disturbed evolutionary progress.  The clocks have to be put back (for we are in the presence of) a powerful pagan/Gnostic theological agenda, claiming to be spanking new, objective and scientific, but as old as the hills." 

Clocks have to be turned back, all the way back to the days of Noah in the pre-flood world where evolution is closely connected to the devil’s lie that man is a being who though presently limited in time and space is nevertheless capable of achieving a great leap of being and magically evolving into a much more powerful god-like being in the future. 

 As the scientifically endarkened Gnostic pagan Spirit of our age simultaneously worships on the altar of ‘self’ as it self-righteously peers down its’ long, pointy nose and contemptuously sniffs and sneers at the remnant of backwards, unscientific, anti-evolution  faithful, in reality it is the entirely deluded pagan Spirit that is on a collision course with a modern version of the pre-flood world catastrophe----and we know how badly that ended.

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 Kingdom of Darkness Triumphant: Church and Society

"In this postmodern age many think that no one can know Truth.
It is true that we cannot know truth if there is no revelation from God
."  – Vishal Mangalwadi

Dr. Vishal Mangalwadi (1949-), founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement, is an Indian philosopher and social reformer.   He has lectured in over 40 countries and published seventeen books including "The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization!"   Mangalwadi's Revelation Movement exists to re-establish the cultural authority of VERITAS (Truth) because God has revealed Truth in scripture and God has given man the mind and clues to help us discover what He has concealed. Proverbs 25:2.  (RevelationMovement.com)

In a recent e-mail message entitled "The Kingdom of Darkness Encircles North America," Vishal writes that his third visit to North America opened his eyes to the magnitude and the power of a massive force of darkness facing the faithful.  Because darkness has deeply penetrated the Church itself it is hard to estimate how much essential theology and church in North America has been lost.   Nevertheless, there are those who are digging in their heels against the darkness that is rapidly encircling North America.  Likening these truth warriors to Jedi warriors and Hobbits, Vishal said,

"When Luke Skywalker joined the Star Wars saga, he had no idea that he was a Jedi. Nor did the tiny, motley crew that teamed up with him know what they were up against. To mix metaphors, they were little Hobbits, unaware of the importance of their mission."

The Kingdom of Darkness

Darkness is evident in both the devastating loss of God's revealed Truth, moral law and norms in our secular-atheist society and in the failure of Americans, within and without the whole body of the Christian Church,  to restrain their own corrupt passions (James 1:14-15).  Depravity in the guise of special rights and privileges, the myth of evolution as scientific fact, same-sex and kundalini-Holy Spirit equality, the big lie of global warming, paganized Christianity and a long list of destructive freedoms such as unfettered killing as 'choice,' and pornography and sodomy as Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms have become dictatorial both outside of the Church, where 'secular' servants of sin demand all others give up their God-given rights, and within, where 'Christian' servants of sin sweep away the essentials of the faith to make room for their self-centered values resulting in lawless Churches:

Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother. (1 John 3:4-10)

Lawless churches are nothing more than social clubs for servants of sin, thus they,

“…exercise no discernment, enforce no standards, and teach more pop psychology than timeless truth. Naturally, lawless churches are populated with lawless Christians, the greatest absurdity of them all. “What fellowship have righteousness and lawlessness?” 1 Corinthians 6:14 (How can I walk North and South at the same time?," Lawless Christians, Dan Popp, Renew America, Mar. 10, 2012)

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian who counseled and delivered thousands of people suffering from demonic bondage in its various forms throughout the world argues that sin cuts a person off from God. Sin opens the door to demonic oppression and possession seen in relation to psychological distortions having the following predominant characteristics:  hard egoism, uncongenial dark nature, violent temper, belligerence, meanness, abnormal sexuality, conscious atheism; rebellious, bigoted attitudes toward Christ and God, and destructive, murderous rages. (Occult ABC, Koch, pp. 266-282)

Cutting Edge Minisitry David Bay identifies the ‘values’ of the lawless as Satanic, and adds that lawless Americans at every level of society, both in and out of the church, have embraced Satanic values with no conscious awareness that they have done so.  When a people believe in nothing higher than 'self', they make personal selfishness, intellectual arrogance, irrational feelings, lying, covetousness, physical lust, hate and envy their gods.  The elevation of these Satanic values produces in them other strong desires: for power over others, for material possessions, pleasure, privilege, status, star-power, and wealth as well as powerful sexual urges that must be satisfied at any cost, no matter who or what might be harmed.  (Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan, Bay, Cutting Edge Ministries)

The Church is the only element in society with the moral authority and the availing remedy to counteract such manifest evil, but for the most part America's Christian church has been rendered impotent.   Having compromised and conformed itself in one way or another to our pagan culture and dictates of science/evolution it is no longer salt and light, thus is worthy only of being spewed out.

Malachi Martin, author of "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," describes the spiritually desolate condition of the compromising church:

"Among the general population of Catholics and Christians of other denominations, large numbers of people no longer learn even so basic a prayer as the Our Father.   In churches and parochial schools alike, the subject of Hell is avoided, as one Midwestern priest put it, in order not to put people on a 'guilt trip.'  The idea of sin is likewise avoided, according to the same source, in order not to do 'irreparable damage to what has been taught for the past fifteen years." (p. xvi)

Fearing rejection by our paganized culture and scientific/evolutionary establishment, spiritually dead churches refuse to contaminate what is termed the 'rational' with the essentials of the faith necessary both for salvation and for the recognition of evil.  And without the grace that is born of true faith,

"....Satan does what he does best---he ceases to exist in the eyes of those who do not see." (ibid)

Consequently, a favorable climate exists for the occurrence of demonic oppression and possession among the general population:

"Possession among the general population is so clear that it is attested to daily by competent social and psychological experts, who for the most part, appear to have no 'religious bias.'  Our cultural desolation---a kind of agony of aimlessness coupled with a dominant self-interest---is documented for us in the disintegration of our families.  In the break-up of our educational system.  In the disappearance of publicly accepted norms of decency in language, dress and behavior.  In the lives of our youth, everywhere deformed by stunning violence and sudden death, by teenage pregnancy; by drug and alcohol addiction; by disease; by suicide; by fear....Whether spoken or acted out without explanation, the dominant question of the younger generation...is, What can you do for me?  What can my parents, my friends, my acquaintances, my enemies, my government, my country, do for me?" (pp. xiii-xiv)

America is enshrouded by a suffocating darkness that has fully penetrated our society and  compromising church.  Dr. Carl Raschke, Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver, concurs.  His chilling book “Painted Black” takes you through the minds of the deviant and murderous and then explores the growing darkness sweeping through our hometowns.  He  concludes that the decadence, pornography, heavy metal music, drug culture, fantasy role-playing games, cruelty, mass murders, criminality, the ‘new religions’ and upsurge in overt Satanism in American culture have certain social and spiritual ties that bind them together, revealing that they are part of a similar dark spiritual genus enabled by mystification of the most corrupt passions and secular values:

Satanism is but the spiritual Frankenstein created by a social order that has attempted to sustain itself without God.” (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West — Part 6, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

"...after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death." James 1: 15

A vast, interpenetrating, malevolent darkness covers the West. Within its' shadow an obviously insane America implodes as a large part of the church falls away.  Please pray that our Lord will cleanse, renew and strengthen His church and build up a force for spiritual and cultural resistance and renewal.    America desperately needs courageous truth warriors: men and women who will choose to stand and fight the forces of darkness for the soul of the West.

The Snakes Lie and Darwinism

The idea that man can become God was first whispered in Eve’s ear by the snake.  In “Ancient Paganism: The Sorcery of Fallen Angels” Ken Johnson, Th.D,  writes that the snake (Lucifer) persuaded pre-flood people to believe that the original Creator God did not exist since He had emptied Himself into creation (pantheism).  According to the snake, since all that actually exists is a creative animated God-force it is possible for each person to evolve into god since the god-energy is man’s mind or unconscious:

 “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)

 In the words of Emergent Church leader Rob Bell, evolution is an energy that everything---including man---is plugged into.  Evolution is a,

"…. spark, an electricity that everything is plugged into. The Greeks called it zoe, the mystics call it 'Spirit,' and Obi-Wan called it 'the Force'.....This energy, spark, and electricity that pulses through all of creation sustains it, fuels it, and keeps it growing. Growing, evolving, reproducing..." (Love Wins, pp. 144-145)

Pre-flood people held very similar views to those espoused by Peck and Bell.  This is why early Church Father Tertullian describes both Greek pagans, who taught that by magic they would evolve into demons (highly evolved spirits of people who lived during the Golden Age) after death and pre-flood people as idolaters rather than atheists:

“….by magic, which is indeed only a second idolatry, wherein they pretend that after death they become demons, just as they were supposed in the first and literal idolatry to become gods.” Tertullian Treatise on the soul 57 (emphasis added)

 We learn in the Ancient Book of Jasher, a 3,000 year old non-inspired history referenced in Joshua 10:13; 2 Sam. 1:18, and 2 Tim. 3:8, that the idea that God does not exist was Lucifer’s original lie:

And they called to Noah, saying, Open for us that we may come to thee in the ark---and wherefore shall we die?  And Noah, with a loud voice, answered them….saying, Have you not all rebelled against the Lord, and said that he does not exist?” Jasher 6:18-19 (emphasis added)

Pre-flood people were idolaters.  They preferred ‘self’ to God and brethren.  They willfully chose to believe that the Creator God does not exist and that by various magic rituals which they had learned from the Watchers (Angels) they would change (evolve) into gods:

And Cainan…went to seek for himself a place where he might seize for himself a city.  And he found a writing which former generations had carved on the rock, and he read what was thereon, and he transcribed it and sinned owing to it; for it contained the teaching of the Watchers….And he wrote it down and said nothing regarding it; for he was afraid to speak to Noah about it lest he should be angry with him on account of it.” (Jubilees 8: 1-5, cited in Ancient Paganism: The Sorcery of the Fallen Angels, Ken Johnson, Th.D., p. 36, emphasis added)

God destroyed that world with a flood.  Only Noah and his family were saved, but whereas Noah re-established the worship of the one true God, in the post-flood world, his son Ham and his sons quickly fell back into pagan idolatry, the lie that man will change into god.  

Church Father Clement writes that it was Ham who rediscovered and resurrected pre-flood teachings from the Watchers:

 "Fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man.  After the flood Ham the son of Noah unhappily discovered this and taught it to his sons.  This became ingrained into the Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians.  Ham died shortly after the fall of the Tower of Babel.  Nimrod, called Ninus by the Greeks, was handed this knowledge and by it caused men to go away from the worship of God and go into diverse and erratic superstitions and they began to be governed by the signs in the stars and motions of the planets." (Recognitions of Clement 4.26-29)

The theme which unites pre-flood paganism to ancient Sumeria (Babylonia) and modern evolutionary movements--- Darwinian humanism,  Teilhard's Hindu pantheist system, Big Bang assumptions, Luciferian Theosophy, liberal pantheist theology, occult pantheist New Age mysticism, and America's slide into apostasy are pride, defiance, and the myth of evolution.

In "Belief in God, Heaven and Miracles Down; Belief in Evolution Up," Christian Post reporter Jeff Schapiro reveals that the percentage of Americans who believe in God, heaven and miracles decreased in the last several years, according to poll results released Monday, while the percentage of people who believe in Darwin's theory of evolution is on the rise:

"A new Harris Poll found that nearly three-quarters (74 percent) of American adults believe in God, though that number is down from 2005, 2007 and 2009, when 82 percent believed in Him. Sixty-eight percent of people now say they are absolutely or somewhat certain God exists, though that number has decreased by 11 percentage points since 2003."  (christianpost.com, Dec. 19, 2013)

 Belief in the theory of evolution, on the other hand,

 "...has risen from 42 percent to 47 percent in the last eight years. Since 2003, the percentage of adults who say there is no God has increased from nine percent to 16 percent, and uncertainty as to whether there is a God has risen from 12 percent to 16 percent."

 In keeping with His Gospel, our Lord not only announced it but foretold the trials and tribulations that would encompass His followers.

The most lethal in our age is the spirit of rebellion that dresses self-worship and evolutionary nature religions in Christian clothing in an attempt to overhaul the Christian faith.

 

In "Apostasy in America: An Overview of Warning Signs in Our Time," Dr. Peter Jones, Professor of Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in California writes that in order for the,

"...pagan lie to succeed, it needs to look as much like the truth as it can. Hence the imperious necessity in the malevolent eschatology of spiritual darkness for the appearance of a new hybrid – 'Christian' paganism." (Jesus and the Den of Thieves, SCP Journal, Vol. 20:3-4, 1996, p. 15)

 The foundation of Christian paganism is Darwinism.  The essence of Darwinism constituting its’ particular nature is neo-pagan naturalism.   Naturalism advocates a phony ‘truth claim’ positing the nonexistence of the one God in three Persons, Heaven, hell, man as God's spiritual image-bearer, angels, demons, immutable truth, moral law, meaning, and purpose resulting in human beings who are no longer Imago Dei but rather conscious products of evolution, mere descendants of lower creatures: 

Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin’s theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma.” (Anton Pannekoek, ‘Marxism and Darwinism,” translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the internet by Jon Muller, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Co,)

Despite claims of evolutionary theologians to the contrary, Darwinism  "destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma," so whether they know it or not, Christians who embrace Darwinism unwittingly deny the deity of Jesus Christ since if Darwinism is true then our Savior is not the Second Person of the Trinity, God Incarnate, the Word Who created ex nihilo but rather a conscious product of evolution (1 John 2:22). 

The Darwinian wrecking-ball does not stop there. 

If Darwinism is true, there was no fall, so Lucifer is not Satan, there is no Original Sin, no hell, no Judgment, and since men are not sinners in need of a Savior, there is no reason why the very worst of our kind need fear doing whatever they want to do, no matter how evil, while in this world.

If Darwinism is true and Jesus is a conscious product of evolution, then there was neither Incarnation nor Resurrection, thus no "new heaven, and a new earth'" where God "shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, neither crying, neither...pain: for the first things are passed." (Rev. 21: 1, 4)

In conclusion, if Darwinism is true, the one God in three Persons does not exist since He and His Revealed Word are myths invented by stone-age hominids,  all of which makes the faithful the most miserable people of all, for they are left with nothing.

“In the beginning was the Word….”

 J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterpiece, the “Silmarillion” is the book of beginnings, the all-important Genesis account that sets the stage for all that follows in the towers trilogy:

 "There was Eru, the One, who in Arda is called Iluvatar; and he made first the Ainur, the Holy Ones, that were the offspring of his thought, and they were with him before aught else was made."  (p. 15)

 Just as the Genesis account opens with creation ex nihilo, so does Tolkien’s account. In the beginning was Illuvatar, the Word who was, is, and always will be:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God, and there was nothing made that was not made by Him.”

Iluvatar ‘thought,’ then he "sang living words," according to both Tolkien and CS Lewis in his "Magicians Nephew." As Iluvatar sings He instantaneously creates the things of His thought, thus all things are created in a precise order and after their own kind in six instantaneous acts of creation.

Returning to Genesis, we are told that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. God Incarnate is Jesus Christ, God made flesh, the fulfillment and perfection of all prophecy from the very beginning, starting with Adam and Eve who received the knowledge of a coming Redeemer as well as the knowledge that the world would be destroyed two times, once by water, once by fire. Thus Jesus Christ in His office as prophet is the Angel of Prophecy who spoke to Moses in the desert, revealing to him the Genesis account ex nihilo.

 Therefore, to embrace Darwinism is to logically deny all of the aforementioned as well as the deity of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, hence,

 “…every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist . . . and even now already is it in the world” (1 John 4:3).

 To reject the deity of Jesus is to deny man’s dire need of our Savior, the Physician of our souls. All who deny the deity of Jesus Christ deny the Physician and are of the spirit of antichrist, thus they deny His prescription and assign themselves to outer darkness.

The Antichrist

 Vladimir Soloviev (1850-1900) was a brilliant Russian philosopher and theologian. In a gripping novel, “A Short Tale of the Antichrist” Soloviev offers both an amazingly accurate glimpse into the mind of the super-man who will become the Antichrist as well as illustrating the real obstacle to salvation, the refusal by proud, willful men to recognize and admit to their sinful condition.

Prior to his transformation by Satan, Soloviev describes the super-man as outwardly just, but within he is full of pride and 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’ spiritual fall progresses, or evolves downward, instead of the former cold rational respect for Jesus Christ God Incarnate:

“.....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 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)

 Soloviev masterfully portrays a striking contrast between the apostles of Christ and the Antichrist. The former receive the power of the living Word and are full of wisdom, virtue, truth, and courage while the latter receives the power of the devil and are full of nihilistic pride, contention, ingratitude, lies, burning envy, murderous hate, blasphemy, cursing, resentment, deception, covetousness, and perversion.

 The Antichrist, as described by Soloviev, suffers the same massively inflated pride and envy that transformed Lucifer into the devil. This same pride and envy animated Cain, Judas, Nimrod, the pantheist sorcerer Hegel, the occult Luciferian Illuminati who planned and instigated the bloody French Revolution; Madame Blavatsky, Karl Marx, Nietzsche, Lenin, Stalin, Teilhard de Chardin, the West’s “God is dead” theologians, the Jesus Seminar gnostics and too many others to be named.

 In the end, hell is the choice of proud, willful men, anti-christs who refuse to recognize and admit to their sinful condition. In affirmation, CS Lewis writes:

 “There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.’ All that are in Hell chose it.”

The 'God' of New Age Mystery Religion

In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called 'the New Age Bible,' Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) enthusiastically reports that a great, shuddering irrevocable shift in consciousness is overtaking us,

"It is a new mind, a turnabout in consciousness in critical numbers of individuals, a network powerful enough to bring about radical change in our culture.   This network....has already enlisted the minds, hearts and resources of some of our most advanced thinkers, including Nobel laureate scientists, philosophers, statesmen, celebrities....who are working to create a different kind of society...The technologies for expanding and transforming personal consciousness, once the secret of an elite, are now generating massive change in every cultural institution---medicine, politics, business, education, religion and the family."   (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt & McMahon, p. 34)

 Ferguson lists a number of these consciousness altering techniques:
 
".....Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, Focusing, Centering, Guided Imagery, Visualization, Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Biofeedback, Dianetics, Silva Mind Control..."  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, p. 43)

 Among other techniques for getting in touch with the "Christ consciousness" inner “Light,”  the "Force," seething energy of Lucifer or the angel (Lucifer) are strenuous physical exercises, special diets (especially vegetarianism), Kundalini yoga, brain-altering drugs, trance music, mind science, chanting, psychodrama, consciousness-raising strategies, hypnosis and self-hypnosis, body disciplines and therapies such as hatha yoga and aikido as well as sensitivity groups and encounter groups, Zen, Tibetan Buddhism and transcendental meditation and yoga. 

The altered state of consciousness by which a man enters into communion with intelligent beings of the unseen world is called "opening of the senses" in Scripture:

"Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way with his drawn sword in his hand."  (Numbers 22:31, also see 2 Kings 6:17; Luke 24:16-31)  

According to the Watchman Expositor, hypnosis is linked to ancient religious practices and eastern mystical experiences, involving similar trance states or altered states of consciousness. Such altered states are essential to such practices as out-of-body experiences, astral projection, and Yoga. William Kroger, M.D. and William Fezler Ph.D. maintain that,

"...hypnosis has been practiced in one form or another in the civilized and uncivilized world under many different labels since the dawn of history."  (Hypnosis, James K. Walker, watchman.org)

They further note that historically elements of hypnosis have been an integral part of pagan religious practices and world religions including Assyro-Babylonian exorcism, Egyptian soothsaying, Jewish mysticism, Chinese Taoism , Sufism, Hinduism, Shintoism, forms of Buddhism (Tibetan and Zen), and Yoga. (Hypnosis and Behavior Modification, pp. 6-8; ibid).  

In  'Recognitions'  church father Clement records an evil deed of the Gnostic pagan magician Simon that bears a striking resemblance to the effects of modern psycho-technologies.   Clement reports that Simon had begun to commit murder by inducing a child to experience an out of body situation.  By way of mesmerizing,

"...abominable incantations he separated the soul of a child from its own body, that it might become his assistant for the production of whatever apparition he might require.  And he drew a likeness of the boy, and keeps it set up in the inner chamber where he sleeps, affirming that he...formed him of air by transformations such as the gods cause..." (Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember, p. 181)

In his interpretation of this dark passage, G.H. Pember concluded,

"...by mesmerism Simon had drawn out the spirit of the boy into a higher...state, and then omitted to recall it, so that the spirit had finally separated from the body; and that he had done this for the purpose of procuring a (spirit) familiar....Simon....denied the murder of the boy by asserting that he had merely resolved a spirit-form which he had himself produced." (p. 182)

In his 'Apology'  church father Tertullian writes that if magicians can produce apparitions, bring into evil repute the spirits of men who are dead,

"....mesmerize boys to obtain an oracular response...perform many wonders...by their conjuring illusions; send dreams by the aiding power of angels and demons whom they have...summoned to their assistance; through whose influence also goats and tables have been made to divine; how much more will that Satanic power be zealous to do with all its strength, of its own will, and for its own purposes, that which it does to serve the ends of others." (Pember, pp. 184-185)

Former guru Rabindranath R. Maharaj, now a committed follower of Jesus Christ, describes his former meditation ritual and its' terrifying consequences:

"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)

As Rabindranath testifies, attaining an altered state of consciousness portends spiritual danger, as in such a state of mind, demons can interfere with and even possess the passive or empty mind.  Hence, meditation serves as an open doorway into the realm of evil spirits and dangerous demonic deceptions.

In a synthetic way, hallucinogenic drugs also assist users to experience an altered state of consciousness. There are as well certain types of music, such as trance and heavy metal that enhance and in many cases produce in the mind and spirit of the listener an altered state, hence spiritual transformation. 

In secularized Westerners and unwary Christians alike, altered states by whatever means eventually end in altered world view:

"Self-induced, mind-emptying and mind-altering disciplines/devices desensitize the Christian's sensitivity to biblical reality as the mind abandons its defenses and letting go of restraints, no longer can discern truth from error.   Mind-emptying meditation, like that promoted in sensitivity training groups related to the Human Potential Movement, has as its philosophical foundation the mantra of, 'accept anything as valid.'  So there is to be no questioning (there are no wrong answers), challenging or negativity expressed against the new sensitivities.  To this end, entering an altered state of consciousness serves to anesthetize persons against discernment as they are overcome by a lax, apathetic and permissive state of mind.  This happens in spite of the biblical call to be sober-minded." (ibid, DeBruyn)

As it was in the days of Noah

 As Ferguson admits, the psycho-technologies being taught over and across our culture were once the private domain of ancient magicians and sorcerers.   In fact, as Constance Cumbey reveals in her thoroughly researched book, "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow," many New Age historians claim their traditions originated in pre-flood Atlantis (during the time of Noah) and afterward were preserved in the ancient land of Babylon,

"...and surrounding Plains of Shinar and from there disseminated throughout the earth, including Taoist doctrines of China, Mayan-Aztec teachings of Mexico and Central/South America; Great Spirit teachings of the American Indians, Hindu/Buddhist teachings of Asia, etc" (pp. 250-251)

 In affirmation, Church Father Clement writes:

 "Fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man.  After the flood Ham the son of Noah unhappily discovered this and taught it to his sons.  This became ingrained into the Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians.  Ham died shortly after the fall of the Tower of Babel.  Nimrod, called Ninus by the Greeks, was handed this knowledge and by it caused men to go away from the worship of God and go into diverse and erratic superstitions and they began to be governed by the signs in the stars and motions of the planets." (Recognitions of Clement 4.26-29)

The Tower of Babel was Babylon's founding edifice and spiritual center, observes Brooks Alexander, Research Director for Spiritual Counterfeits Project.  Brooks describes the Tower as an astral temple,
 
"....representing the structure of reality. As the 'cosmic mountain' it tied heaven and earth together.  It was the all-inclusive image of the totality of the universe." (The Big Lie, SCP Journal 29:2-29:3, 2005, Tal Brooke, p. 11)
 
The magical meaning of the Temple is the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle of the macrocosm's correlation with the microcosm, "as above, so below" symbolized by the Ouroboros – the great chain of being and cosmic tree of life.  "Below" corresponds to the Tower and 'above' to a number of different 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 to our own, the serpent-energized Ouroboros with its astral planes has been well-known around the world in its' many esoteric (occult secret) 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)
 
Brooks adds that in the,

 "….ritual act of ascending the astral altar, the priests acted out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos.  The Babylonian monarch was the focus of the occult power channeled through the activities of the priesthood.  He was regarded as a divine being, a god-man."  (ibid, The Big Lie, p. 10)    
 
 In other words, with the help of spirit guides, psycho-technologies and other occult rituals, initiates believed they could spiritually rise or evolve up the astral planes to visit the realm of the gods and become the mouth-pieces for the gods and goddesses.  
 
According to occult lore, at the final level of initiation spirit entities fully possess the body of the monarch (i.e., Nimrod) to replace his spirit. This means that the spirit of the monarch is no longer in residence as a 'new' spirit inhabits and animates the monarch's body.  This is why the monarch thereafter was regarded as a divine being, a god-man.
 
Upon possession of the monarch's body, the possessing spirit or spirit's exude a powerful mesmerizing influence that draws most of the community into its' sphere of influence and domination resulting in communal possession.  
 
Possession takes two forms, communal and individual:

"...central possession is communal, strongly institutionalized, and ritualistically induced, but peripheral possession is more normally individual and spontaneous." (Demonic Possession: A Medical, Historical, Anthropological, and Theological Symposium, John Warwick Montgomery (ed.), Bethany,1976)

Inducing Communal Possession

Dr. Martin Erdmann, in his key article "The Spiritualization of Science, Technology, and Education in a One-World Society," explains how achieving altered consciousness is a primary agenda of the evolutionary pantheist Human Potential Movement: 

"Inspired in part by Aldous Huxley's publications and his advocacy of psychedelic drugs, intellectuals such as Willis W. Harman emphasized irrational meditative/mind emptying exercises, or the use of hallucinogens as a more congenial basis for scientific and technological progress.  Calling for a new metaphysic of science/technology, the proponents of the Human Potential Movement perceive the religious heritage of the West---based on Christian premises---as the greatest impediment of an evolving "cosmic conscience."   In gaining a more comprehensive understanding of the spiritual and material processes of the universe, a mystically inclined elite of technically enhanced human mutants would be able to usher in a homogenous world socialist society, perhaps not altogether different from the one envisioned in Brave New World."   (Altered States: A Different Gate, Sarah Leslie and Pastor Larry DeBruyn, Apr. 28, 2011, Herescope) 

Psycho-technology in many guises is now moving with an almost irresistible force over and across post-Christian America and the West transforming the consciousness of Westerners and Americans away from the personal Triune God and toward a new spirituality and perdition.  Mainstream media took note and reported:

"Neopaganism Growing Quickly: Numbers Roughly Double Every 18 Months in United States, Canada, and Europe." (Denver Post, June 26, 2008; How Evil Works: Understanding and Overcoming the Destructive Forces that are Transforming America, David Kupelian, p. 115)

"Sorcery Sells, and the Young are Buying" (ibid, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 10, 2007)

"Wicca is Believed to be One of the Fastest-Growing Religions Among High School and College Students" (ibid, National Public Radio, May 13, 2004)
 
According to a 1987 New York Times article, psychologists who have studied these mind-altering techniques said that while participants are in this 'altered state' group-leaders are able to implant new ideas and alter thinking processes:
 
"Gurus hired to motivate workers are raising fears of 'mind control." (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt, McMahon)
 
This charge is so grave and frightening that former University of Wisconsin psychology faculty member Edwin Morse warns that graduates of New Age courses being required for employees of many businesses are often "psychologically scarred."  Now in private practice and specializing in helping such people, Dr. Morse declares:
 
"These (mind-altering) groups are using hypnotic procedures and people are not being told about it." (Dave Hunt, p. 42)
 
Richard L. Waring of Budget Rent-a-Car Corporation asserts that mind-altering techniques induce a trance-like state and adds that many participants are convinced that they have come under harmful, frightening influence from spirit entities as a result.  Arguing that people exposed by employers to,

 "New Age psycho-technologies (for) altering normal consciousness....ought to be told up front" that inevitably their "fundamental worldviews and Judeo-Christian religious beliefs' are being tampered with.  

Waring adds,

"For about the last three years, I have observed the introduction and growth of a new philosophy of human potential and development (most often referred to) as the 'New Age' movement... I began noticing a number of consultants and corporate Human Resources Development practitioners who were promoting 'higher creativity,' 'improved memory,' 'accelerated learning,' 'stress management.'  I found that most of these methods were somewhere on Ferguson's list of 'means to altering consciousness'(and) I began to wonder about the motives of the persons selling these concepts. Were they really out to improve human potential? Or had they had some profound experience on their spiritual journey and were really enlisting others to follow their path?" (ibid, pp. 42-43)

 New Age spirituality is at work within churches and schools as well:

"Your unconscious mind (has a) power that turns wishes into realities when the wishes are strong enough." ("Positive Imaging," Norman Vincent Peale, 1982, p. 77)

Word Faith teacher Kenneth Copeland tells people to visualize any image,

"...that you get down inside you that is so vivid when you close your eyes you see it, it'll come to pass. When God came at the Tower of Babel, He said, 'Anything they can imagine, they can do." (Inner Image of the Covenant, side 2, Copeland)

In our schools children are being taught the ancient occult art of "centering," a psycho-technique that opens up the minds of children to the influence of demons.  In his book, "America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom," Allen Quist warns:

"New Age religion is now aggressively being taught in our nation's public schools." A model curriculum has been developed that "is clearly centered on pantheism." "Much of what passes for environmental education and multiculturalism is really indoctrination in pantheistic/New Age theology. The ACLU and other similar organizations have no objections to (pantheistic indoctrination). It is only Christianity that these organizations object to." (p. 51)

Tom DeWeese, President of the American Policy Center, has also been following the explosive growth of occult New Age spirituality. In a work entitled, "Teachers, Preachers and Greens: The Unholy Alliance to Transform America," DeWeese reveals the existence of a well-funded yet covert effort to alter the consciousness of American society through an aggressive assault on schools and churches.  He reveals that the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City is one of the initiating centers of the assault and the home of the enormously influential occult spiritual Gaia Institute as well as the Temple of Understanding — a politically influential U.N. Non-Governmental Organization. DeWeese describes a pagan "church service" at St. John the Divine:

"As the congregation sit in their church pews in the great Cathedral of St. John, the Divine in New York City, the priest stands at the alter, ready to receive a procession of animals for the annual Feast of Saint Francis blessing. Down the aisle comes a procession of elephants, camels, donkeys, monkeys and birds. These are followed by members of the congregation carrying bowls of compost and worms. Next, to the sounds of music, come acrobats and jugglers. In the pulpit, former Vice President Al Gore delivers a sermon, saying, "God is not separate from the Earth." (federalobserver.com)

So-called 'extraterrestrials' are also at work.   In "Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection," Gary Bates reports that the abduction phenomenon is occurring all over the world, including Third World countries. 

 UFO researcher Jacques Vallee concurs and notes that the abductee's perceptions of reality (consciousness) are being profoundly altered and adds that the structure of abduction stories is identical to occult rituals:
 
"...contact with ufonauts (is) a modern extension of contact with non-human consciousness in the form of angels, demons, elves, and sylphs....Such contact...often leaves marks and scars on the body and the mind..."   (p. 230)
 
 UFO research-scientist John Keel also likens modern alien abductions to contact with the demonic:

"Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology.  It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have...coexisted with man throughout history....The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not..identical, to the UFO phenomenon.  Victims of demonomania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees..."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 260)
 
After considerable research, Bates connects psycho-techniques utilized by ‘ETs” to hypnosis.  So-called 'aliens' use hypnotic methods to enter into the subconscious mind to plant subliminal messages and alter thought processes to embrace the concept of naturalistic evolution which negates the Genesis account. (Bates, p. 262)

Individual and Communal Possession

 Today anthropologists, scientific psychiatrists, and other professionals from the counseling and medical field take very seriously the fact that something frightening and unexplainable by Western science is going on here in America and throughout the West. In their search for answers they are jettisoning as useless materialist explanations. A "new" consensus is emerging: Men have souls and demons really do exist:

"...we need to understand a number of different concepts in order to comprehend the worldwide phenomenon of possession and exorcism. On the psychological level, we have come to know the notion underlying all possession, namely, that the body is a shell, inhabited by a soul, and that this shell may on occasion be surrendered to an intrusive alien entity. " (How about Demons? Possession and Exorcism in the Modern World, Felicitas Goodman. IndianaUpress:1988)

Global Mystery Religion

The Book of Genesis informs us that before the great flood the antediluvian world was in a frenzy of wickedness, no doubt aided and abetted by the Watchers.   God's wrath fell upon that world while a remnant was preserved in the ark.   But scarcely had the waters receded when Ham rediscovered and resurrected the teachings of the Watchers from the antediluvian world.  Utilizing these teachings, Nimrod turned the people away from the worship of God and revived the necessary elements of Mystery Religion Atlantis to establish his own post-flood version. 

While Mystery Religion Babylon is the post-flood root of all mystery religions, in its' final version, communal and individual possession will become a global phenomenon as untold millions of people ritualistically act out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos:

".....I can be saved only by becoming one with the universe. Thereby, too, my deepest 'pantheist' aspirations. It was especially the image of God which Teilhard saw in need of urgent redefinition. Modern man has not yet found the God he can adore, A God commensurate to the newly discovered dimensions of the universe." (Towards a New Mysticism, Teilhard de Chardin and Eastern Religions, Ursula King, p. 172

Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the ‘divine,’ its transcendence into ever higher forms of life.  Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine.  This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity.  Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age...” (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality,  Robert Muller, father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)   

But as they spiritually rise on the astral planes who is the god they will become "one" with? 

New Age spirituality relies heavily on the spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Of these it is Blavatsky who reveals this closely guarded secret.       

Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy and a leading Masonic thinker, wrote in her book “The Secret Doctrine” volume II:

 "….it is but natural…to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was the first to whisper: “in the day ye eat thereof, ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil” – can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour….”  (Theosophical University Press, 1888, p. 243, 513 cited by Paul Trog in "Who is their god? paultrog.com)

 “And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the “Lord of Phosphorus” (brimstone was a theological improvement), and Lucifer, or “Light Bearer,” is in us: It is our Mind – our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism. Without this principle… we would be surely no better than animals

Now we know why leading New Age Mystery Religion adepts speak of the necessity of the Luciferian initiation for all who wish to enter the coming New Age.

Revelation reports that at some point the whole world will become drunk on the wine of Babylon, its' deluded celebrants convinced of their own deity when in reality they've received the mark of Satan. 

The clearest answer to the chaotic conditions of our times is found in the Bible.  We are living in the Last Days.  History is winding down and Satan is mobilizing his forces for a final all-out assault--- which we are already experiencing (1 Tim. 4:1 and 2; Tim. 3:1-4)  The demonic realm is brazenly interacting with our own realm, and it is in this light that we can understand the growing epidemic of madness, extremism, suicide, depression, apathy, apostasy, lawlessness, and hatred appearing on every side. 

We are living in the days of a demonic nature, said Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987).  For over fifty years Dr. Koch's name has been synonymous with authoritative and biblical insights and help for all who desire to understand or escape from the mesmerizing influence of the occult and demonic world. 

 Civilization is marching toward its own destruction said Koch, and if we fail therefore to take our stand at the foot of the cross,

"... fail to build our house upon the Rock, (we will) be swept away by the turmoil of the End-times."  (Demonology Past and Present, Koch, p. 37)

The Fall of Western and American Society

“Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall." Proverbs 16:18

"Barbarism is that which prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah. It is called barbarism because of the fact that in those times men had no ruling authority or mutual accord, but every man was independent and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will." (John of Damascus, "The Fount of Knowledge," cited in Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 131)

In "Against the Heathen," early Church Father Athanasius briefly outlines the predictable pattern of man’s fall from the time of Adam to our own.  Because man is naturally self-centered and pleasure-seeking, his fall begins with pride and haughtiness resulting in idolatry (preference for self rather than God and brethren), rebellion against authority and the casting off of moral restraints and sexual ethics eventuating in barbarism and nature and/or state worship.

It was a haughty, rebellious, willful spirit that led the people of Noah’s day to make light of the unchanging higher things of God, to criticize, ridicule and scoff God and everything true, good, natural and real away. Deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true they began seeking in preference things in the worldly or natural dimension. Thus they fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher things.

 The pattern outlined by Athanasius is similar to the one delineated by Benjamin Wiker in his book,“Worshipping the State: How Liberalism became Our State Worship.”  Wiker writes that as far back as the Renaissance the strong impulse to throw off the restraints of God and Christianity was already at work in certain Churchmen and intellectuals, hence their eventual embrace of materialism (naturalism):

The desire to be liberated from the constraints of Christianity was the original reason for modern liberalism’s embrace of a world defined entirely by materialism—the view that there are no immaterial entities like God of the soul, but only physical entities. This embrace of materialism began as far back as the Renaissance. And the same impulse was behind the nineteenth-century enthusiasm for scientific materialism, and it remains a staple of liberalism today."  ("Worshipping the State: How Liberalism became Our State Religion," Benjamin Wiker)

 Wiker painstakingly traces the development of what he defines as contemporary secular liberalism (also science-magic and evolution or neo-pantheist Modernism and its primary doctrine evolution) to its roots, thereby revealing that the liberals in ascendancy in America today are,

"....the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from the beginning has been characterized by a desire to be free from the burden of Christianity...As a rebellion against Christianity, its negative goal defined its positive form: the desire to remove the church and replace it with the state gave liberalism its structure, beliefs, and goals." (ibid)

So from the start, the desire to be liberated from God and Christianity has been a war against God as Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto makes clear in his poem, "The Pale Maiden" when he admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:

"Thus heaven I've forfeited; I know it full well; My soul, once true to God; Is chosen for hell." (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 22)

Our rebellion is a satanic revolt against God, said Marx’s anarchist comrade Bakunin:

"The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority....Socialists recognize each other by the words, "In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done....Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds." (Mikhail Bakunin, comrade of Marx, ibid, p. 27)

"We do not fight against believers (or) even clergymen....We fight against God to snatch believers from Him." (Vetchernaia Moskva, a Communist newspaper, ibid, p.77)

The Satanic revolt, like authentic Christian faith, is a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in Satan, the father of lies, heresy and envy, the author of blasphemy and rebellion, and the revelator of secrets.

Satanic revolt is war against the Holy Trinity which in Bakunin's words is the "cursed and fatal principle of authority." Thus it proclaims the reign of nothingness (nihilist materialism) though nothingness nevertheless pregnant with the expectation of fulfillment in the revelation, and finally the actual presence, of evil personified....the dark Lord of this world.

The sentiment of the revolt 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 Satanic revolt is the antithesis of the 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, the Satanic counterfeit is full of skepticism, scoffing, cruel criticism and ridicule, lies, sophistry, revulsion, burning envy, impatience, seething hatred, jealousy, rebelliousness, blasphemy, and eternal life in Hell.

 Just as it was a haughty, rebellious, willful spirit that led the antediluvians of Noah’s day to make light of the unchanging higher things of God, to criticize, ridicule and scoff God and everything true, good, natural and real away, so it is the case with modern rebels against God.  Where antediluvians deliberately disregarded what they knew to be true and began seeking in preference things in the worldly or natural dimension, so too have moderns. Thus they, antediluvians and moderns, fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher things.

Writing at the time of the collapse of the Roman Empire, St. Augustine writes in the “City of God” that the good man (i.e., authentic Christians and good, decent Westerners and Americans), even if he has become a slave to wicked men is actually the free man, but the wicked man, though a king, is the slave. For he serves not one man alone, but what is worse, as many masters as he has vices. 

The Spirit of the Lord has departed from rebels and turned them over to other spirits as He did with the wicked people of Noah’s day.  Thus wicked men are not only the slaves of their unfettered libidos and madness but the demons who influence their moral imbecility and inflame their passions, as was the case with King Saul.  

As a society is comprised of men and women, it is when a majority have fallen into idolatry, libido dominandi, madness and demonic subjection that a tyranny of evil prevails. Common features of evil  societies include but are not limited to the following:  

1. Warped, distorted, freakish characters; narcissism, hard egoism, uncongenial dark natures, scoffing, mocking, cruel criticism, contempt and ridicule

2. Extreme, uncontrollable passions resulting in abnormal, compulsive sexuality, sodomy, bestiality, pederasty, androgyny (transgender); meanness, spite, hate, violence, wrath, explosive rage, belligerence, theft, rape, murder, killing of babies, beatings, terrorism

3. Compulsive dark thoughts of suicide and murder; hideous nightmares, the sensation of standing atop an abyss, anxiety states, persecution complexes

4. Sexualization of culture: sexualized women, teens, boys, girls, babies and animals; love of nudity and titillation, addiction to pornography and drugs

5. Automatic rebellion against any vestige of authority

6. Moral relativism: the depraved insistence that there is no essential difference between good and evil, natural and unnatural, truth and lie.  All ‘truth’ and ‘values’ are subject to each whining, demanding narcissist’s personal likes (whatever is coveted) and dislikes (whoever is hated and envied) since each narcissist is independent “and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will…”

5. Naturalism: all that exists is nature or cosmos (matter), hence there can be no relevance in anything beyond our senses; there is nothing above us and no hell below

6. Madness or moral imbecility: all sense suddenly seems like nonsense, nothing is ever right, natural, good and true

7. Demonic subjection: confusion, psychosis, psychopathy, blasphemous thoughts, words and acts against Jesus Christ and Christian symbols, Holy Days, and prayer

Even though rebels against God deny their own personal responsibility for the wicked choices they make, the truth as to evil said Athanasius,

"....is that it originates, and resides, in the perverted choice of the darkened soul" which, "materialized by forgetting God" and engrossed in lower things, "makes them into gods, " and thereby "descends into a hopeless depth of delusion and superstition, "whereby"they ceased to think that anything existed beyond what is seen, or that anything was good save things temporal and bodily; so turning away and forgetting that she was in the image of the good God, she no longer... sees God the Word after whose likeness she is made; but having departed from herself, imagines and feigns what is not (and then) advancing further in evil, they came to celebrate as gods the elements and the principles of which bodies are composed...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

Believing themselves free and intellectually enlightened, rebels against God are in reality the spiritually blind slaves of their unfettered libidos and the demons who influence their moral imbecility and inflame their passions, causing them to publicly shame themselves with their outrageous words and actions, scar and mutilate their bodies, prostitute themselves to dictators, publicly confess their own hypocrisy and stupidity, torment them with frightening nightmares and fantasies, and compel them to dwell on thoughts of suicide and murder.

If you will not submit your will to our Lord who does not want any of His sheep to be lost, then you must say hello to the demons. You will submit to them.

The Devil & Richard Dawkins: Condemning Pedophilia is Unfair

Gateway Pundit writer Melissa Clouthier reports that prominent liberal and evolutionary atheist Richard Dawkins believes that mild pedophilia is acceptable by today’s standards and should not be condemned.  In support of his position he begins by briefly reporting that one of his former school masters had pulled him up on his knee and put his  “hand inside my shorts” to engage in some “mild touching up.”   But since his school master was from an earlier era it would be unfair to condemn his actions by the standards of today, which Dawkins seemingly implies are somehow higher, more advanced. (Prominent Liberal and Avowed Atheist Richard Dawkins Supports ‘Mild Pedophilia,’ Clouthier, Gateway Pundit, Sept. 10, 2013)

The measure of one’s worldview is in how close it conforms to the permanent things, the higher good, true, and real.   Dawkins however, argues for the inverse of good, and as  St. Augustine taught, evil is a parasite on good.    That evil destroys the good, true and real can be seen by the fact that if a case can be made for ‘mild’ pedophilia as Dawkins argues, it logically follows that it can and will be made for ‘mild’ rape, ‘mild’ murder, ‘mild’ genocide and for any and all evil so long as it is framed as ‘mild.’    

Dawkins evolutionary worldview fails to conform to the good, true and real but rather advocates parasitic evil in general and the psychological and physical abuse of children in particular.  This is because evolution teaches that as everything in nature (i.e., pedophilia) is the fruit of a gradual upward growth then perfection (mild pedophilia?!?) in an evolving world obviously lies somewhere in the future. 

In this grand, unfolding utopian fantasy, history gradually progresses upward from self-created nonliving matter to cave-dwelling ape-man thence to animism, then to superstitious polytheism and monotheism (the stages where primitive humans invented gods and ethics) and from there to our modern age of reason and science. In this higher-order age ‘enlightened’ man is finally liberated from the gods he had created in his distant primitive past. Having evolved to higher-order reason and purity man is now free to throw off the chains of moral ethics, make God over in his own image, and believe as Dawkins that only the scientific and evolutionary-minded are the real adults, the higher-order thinkers, the Gnostkoi who “know” that the world is billions of years old, there was no fall, thus man is not a sinner and Lucifer is not the devil, and religion, particularly Christian theism, is a primitive holdover from man’s superstitious past that must be cured. 

However, the grand, unfolding dream is neither real nor true but a fairytale; an alternative reality. It is in fact, an inversion of reality, the reverse of facts:

“….human history can now be hesitantly traced back as an unbroken narrative to 4000 B.C. …the picture emerging…is one of the Fall of Man in historic terms as well as his rise; it is a picture…more of degradation than of success; it is a picture of monotheism breaking down into polytheism and of the struggle to return to monotheism….The establishment view of the history of religion gradually progressing from animism to polytheism, from polytheism to monotheism is the reverse of facts.” (The God-Kings and the Titans: The New World Ascendancy in Ancient Times, James Baily, 1973, p. 296) 

The evolutionary worldview is a satanic inversion of reality that upends the  order of creation and the ages of humanity. Even ancient pagans knew that creation and man had fallen from a higher, more perfect condition to a lower, increasingly degraded, evil one. 

Two classical pagans, Hesiod and Ovid offered accounts of man’s fall from a nearly divine existence in paradise into degradation and evil.   In the two accounts that survive from ancient Greece and Rome, the fall of creation and man over time is indicated symbolically with metals of successively decreasing value: gold, silver, bronze, and iron.  The close of every age is a fall into disorder, violence, stealing, murder, lying, sodomy, envy, strife and every kind of evil.

Hesiod lived in the Iron Age, a time much like our own, an evil age marked by envy, misery, despair, the killing of babies, rampant lesbianism, homosexuality and the sexual abuse of children.  Marriage had disintegrated, children dishonored their parents, brother fought against brother, might made right, bad men supplanted truth with lies, men and women no longer felt shame for their wickedness and almost no one stood for decency, truth and ethics or expressed moral outrage.   The gods, said Hesiod, had forsaken humanity, and there would be no help against evil.   

Dawkins evolutionary worldview is a satanic inversion of reality that even he, as self-deceived and narcissistic as he is, cannot help but know.  He knows for instance, that life did not arise from nonlife, and for this reason he has quietly moved away from spontaneous generation and/or abiogenesis (life emerged over time from nonlife-bearing chemicals) in favor of panspermia conceptions.  Panspermia holds that life somehow emerged from nonlife-bearing matter out in deep space and highly evolved extraterrestrials are responsible for seeding earth with life.   But this wishful thinking merely moves the unresolvable issue of the ultimate origin of life out into deep space.   Furthermore, if ‘mild’ pedophilia is a sign of evolutionary perfection then it stands to reason that Dawkins space-man “creators” must be pedophiles---and worse.   

UFO researcher Dr. Jacques Vallee, a French physicist, concludes that “extraterrestrials” are nonphysical beings causing a shift in human consciousness.  Extraterrestrials constitute the same powerful force that influenced the degradation and fall of humans in past ages:   

“I am suggesting that what takes place through close encounters with UFOs is control of human beliefs, control of the relationship between our consciousness and physical reality, and that this control has been in force throughout history…” (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 158)

 Yes, there is a powerful force.  It cannot be seen because it is of the unseen dimension.  It is the essence of evil and works through the mind and emotions of demonically subjected men. Scripture describes it as “powers and principalities,” the devil and his evil angel horde who strangely resemble the reptilians, greys, and humanoid Nordics known today as the Space Brothers, Council of Nine, the Group, and Ascended Masters.  If Dawkins persists in his rebellion against the Lord, he will eventually meet them.   More than likely they have been working on him for a long time in preparation for this eventuality.

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.”

The Corollary of Lawless Christians & Others: An Occult Dominated Stronghold

Almost from birth the life of Nanci Des Gerlaise, a Cree Native American woman raised on a Metis settlement,  consisted of occult bondage and terrifying demonic harassment until she found deliverance through Jesus Christ.

Nanci knows without a doubt that demons exist and can even take the shape of animals, birds and other more frightening creatures.  She knows that medicine men still engage in symbolic baby sacrifices to Satan in return for more spiritual power.  She knows because her own father offered her to Satan in exchange for more power.  Her life then belonged to the devil and became filled with all kinds of evil:

"This is what happened to me and one reason why I had such a struggle when I became a Christian.  Satan still claimed ownership of me. The tug of war first started when I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.....He set me free from occult bondages and demonic harassment...Christianity (is) God's way of salvation.  Colossians 1:12-14 made perfect sense to me..." (Muddy Waters, Gerlaise, pp. 51, 79-80)

Nanci's book, Muddy Waters, is far more than a biography.  It is a clear and compelling warning to all practitioners of occult New Age psycho-spiritual technologies, as well as UFO enthusiasts, advocates for interfaith/interspirituality and spiritual formation (psycho-spiritual technologies dressed in Christian motifs), and Christians living in sin that forces of darkness exist and will make your lives a waking/sleeping nightmare:  a life surrounded by swirling dark forces, dis-embodied voices, demonic oppression and finally eternal damnation.

It is the case today that but for shrinking islands of light where truth, goodness and righteousness dwell, the rest of America is rapidly disintegrating into a demonically oppressed strong-hold in which vast numbers of spiritually dying and already dead Americans together with Christians living in sin have embraced Satanic values without realizing it.

When a people believe in nothing higher than self, then like their father the devil they make lies, personal selfishness, covetousness, hate, envy and physical lust into their gods which in turn produces in them other strong desires: for power over others; for privilege, status, star-power, wealth, material possessions and spiritual experiences as well as powerful sexual urges that must be satisfied at any cost, no matter who might be harmed.  Eventually all of this evil becomes the basis for law, spending, government and doing church.

As Satanic values dig deeper into our lawless society, formerly unspeakable practicesbegin to be discussed, shown on TV, showcased in movies and video-games, are seen cavorting down our streets, taught to our children, and openly practiced.  Like Sodom and Gomorrah, society becomes openly supportive of nudity, violence, sodomy, incest, bestiality, necrophilia, pedophilia, pederasty, human sacrifice (i.e., abortion, euthanasia) and even cannibalism.

Satanic values find outward expression in death symbols:  skulls, demonic goat faces, pierced and grossly tattooed bodies, hideous black-eyed dolls, evil-looking Halloween costumes, black-painted fingernails, vampires, walking dead, werewolves, violence filled rap and heavy metal music, porn and snuff films—all serve to fix the minds of the lawless on death.

Satanic values pollute the conscience. They systematically force open the door of the conscience until formerly objectionable, unspeakable practices occur constantly and for whatever reason:

Your conscience is the part of you which embraces what is good and which rejects evil. It is like the doorkeeper of a house which is open to friends and closed to enemies.” (Hilary of Arles, Ancient Christian Devotional, p. 127)

The conscience that has been compromised eventually becomes severely sullied and seared, thereby enslaving the soul to the seducer.

In souls destroyed by hate, lack of charity eases the way for psychological bullying, sadism, murder and other forms oftorment and killing as well as for cruel experiments (human sacrifice)  performed on humans in the name of "science” as was the case in the Soviet Union and Hitler's Socialist Germany.

The Spirit of God is not with lawless people, but has rather given them over to depraved minds and into bondage to evil spirits.  

When the Spirit of God departed Saul another spirit, an evil spirit, came unto him and turned his inflated passions to covetousness, hate and envy and his thoughts to murder.  Saul was in bondage to one or more evil spirits that harassed him night and day and finally drove him to kill himself.   Multiply Saul by millions of Americans of every age and what do you get?   Millions of ‘Saul's’  practicing Satanic values and involving themselves in some way, shape or form in occultism.

The corollary of lawless Churches and a post-Christian social order trying to sustain itself without the true God and repentance of sin is an occult dominated society wherein increasing numbers of Americans are experiencing terrifying nightmares, mental and emotional breakdown, demonically-induced visions, dis-embodied voices speaking into deceived minds, thoughts of murder, frightening sightings and even first-hand contact with demons, whether as UFO greys, Nordics and reptilians, or as ghostly apparitions, ferocious red-eyed werewolves, frightening mothmen, Space Brothers, the Council of Nine,  shadow people, and now black-eyed children as Barbara Schneider reports:

Imagine this….You pull into a convenience store, and you wait in the car while (your better half) runs in for something. You’re sitting there in the dark waiting for him to return when suddenly you get an inexplicable, overwhelming feeling of terror. You sit up a little straighter and glance toward the driver’s side window. There staring in at you are two children – but not just any children. These are “Black Eyed Children,” and they want to get into the car with you…Sound like something from a horror movie? Well, it’s not. It’s as real as it gets. According to David Weatherly, a paranormal investigator and author, who has written a book called “Black Eyed Children,” incidents or visitations by these strange children are occurring worldwide. They have one simple request, they want to come in. They appear on doorsteps, at car windows, hotel rooms and even boats…Their most outstanding feature is their solid black eyes, eyes completely void of color or light, showing no pupils, no irises. Witnesses say looking into these eyes evokes intense feelings of terror.” (Black-Eyed Children: Don’t Invite them into your Home," Schneider, examiner.com)

"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

 Nanci Des Gerlaise has been delivered from all occult bondages and spiritual harassment, and she advises all who are in bondage that only by being born again into the Lord Jesus Christ and daily repenting of our sins can we escape the kingdom of darkness (Eph. 6:10-18)    (Muddy Waters, p. 178)

Hypnotic Procedures: From Babylon's Sorcerers and Magicians to Our Own Time

In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called 'the New Age Bible,' Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) enthusiastically reports that a great, shuddering irrevocable shift is overtaking us,

"It is a new mind, a turnabout in consciousness in critical numbers of individuals, a network powerful enough to bring about radical change in our culture.   This network....has already enlisted the minds, hearts and resources of some of our most advanced thinkers, including Nobel laureate scientists, philosophers, statesmen, celebrities....who are working to create a different kind of society...The technologies for expanding and transforming personal consciousness, once the secret of an elite, are now generating massive change in every cultural institution---medicine, politics, business, education, religion and the family."   (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt & McMahon, p. 34)

As Ferguson admitted, the psycho-technologies being employed for the transformation of personal consciousness or spirit, were once the private domain of ancient magicians and sorcerers.   In fact, as Constance Cumbey reveals in her thoroughly researched book, "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow," many New Age esoteric historians claim their traditions originated in Atlantis and afterward were preserved in the ancient land of Babylon,

"...and surrounding Plains of Shinar and from there disseminated throughout the earth, including Taoist doctrines of China, Mayan-Aztec teachings of Mexico and Central/South America; Great Spirit teachings of the American Indians, Hindu/Buddhist teachings of Asia, etc" (pp. 250-251)

Occult New Age spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through mediums such as the Luciferian Theosophists Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey together with their contemporary disciples, Benjamin Crème, Robert Muller, Barbara Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh to name but a few.  All of these mediums are not only under the influence of their spirit guides but demonically oppressed by them, often without their conscious awareness.   It is from demons then that the secret knowledge, the technologies for expanding and transforming personal consciousness, has been received.

Ferguson lists a number of these techniques 'for altering consciousness:'

".....Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, Focusing, Centering, Guided Imagery, Visualization, Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Biofeedback, Dianetics, Silva Mind Control..."  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, p. 43)

According to a 1987 New York Times article, psychologists who have studied these mind-altering techniques said that while participants are in this 'altered state' group-leaders are able to implant new ideas and alter thinking processes:

"Gurus hired to motivate workers are raising fears of 'mind control." (ibid, Hunt, McMahon)

This charge is so grave and frightening that former University of Wisconsin psychology faculty member Edwin Morse warns that graduates of New Age courses being required for employees of many businesses are often "psychologically scarred."  Now in private practice and specializing in helping such people, Dr. Morse declares:

"These (mind-altering) groups are using hypnotic procedures and people are not being told about it." (Dave Hunt, p. 42)

Richard L. Waring of Budget Rent-a-Car Corporation asserts that mind-altering techniques induce a trance-like state and adds that many participants are convinced that they have come under harmful, frightening influence from spirit entities as a result.  Arguing that people exposed by employers to "New Age psycho-technologies (for) altering normal consciousness....ought to be told up front" that inevitably their "fundamental worldviews and Judeo-Christian religious beliefs' are being tampered with, Waring explains,

"For about the last three years, I have observed the introduction and growth of a new philosophy of human potential and development (most often referred to) as the 'New Age' movement... I began noticing a number of consultants and corporate Human Resources Development practitioners who were promoting 'higher creativity,' 'improved memory,' 'accelerated learning,' 'stress management.'  I found that most of these methods were somewhere on Ferguson's list of 'means to altering consciousness'....(and) I began to wonder about the motives of the persons selling these concepts. Were they really out to improve human potential? Or had they had some profound experience on their spiritual journey and were really enlisting others to follow their path?" (ibid, pp. 42-43)

The New Age network is at work within our schools as well.  There they teach children the ancient art of "centering," a  psycho-technology that opens up the minds of children to the influence of demons.  In his book, "America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom," Allen Quist warns:

"New Age religion is now aggressively being taught in our nation's public schools."  A model curriculum has been developed that "is clearly centered on pantheism."  "Much of what passes for environmental education and multiculturalism is really indoctrination in pantheistic/New Age theology.  The ACLU and other similar organizations have no objections to (pantheistic indoctrination).  It is only Christianity that these organizations object to."  (p. 51)

So-called 'extraterrestrials' are also at work.   In "Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection," Gary Bates reports that the abduction phenomenon is occurring all over the world, including Third World countries. 

 UFO researcher Jacques Vallee notes that the abductee's perceptions of reality are being profoundly altered and adds that the structure of abduction stories is identical to occult rituals:

"...contact with ufonauts (is) a modern extension of contact with non-human consciousness in the form of angels, demons, elves, and sylphs....Such contact...often leaves marks and scars on the body and the mind..."   (p. 230)

 UFO research-scientist John Keel also likens modern alien abductions to contact with the demonic:

"Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology.  It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have...coexisted with man throughout history....The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not..identical, to the UFO phenomenon.  Victims of demonomania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees..."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 260)

After considerable research, Gary Bates connects psycho-technologies to hypnosis.  So-called 'aliens' use hypnotic methods to enter into the subconscious mind to plant subliminal messages and alter thought processes to embrace the concept of naturalistic evolution which negates the Genesis account. (Bates, p. 262)

According to the Watchman Expositor, hypnosis is linked to ancient religious practices and eastern mystical experiences, involving similar trance states or altered states of consciousness. Such altered states are essential to such practices as out-of-body experiences, astral projection, and Yoga. William Kroger, M.D. and William Fezler Ph.D. maintain that,

"...hypnosis has been practiced in one form or another in the civilized and uncivilized world under many different labels since the dawn of history."  (Hypnosis, James K. Walker, watchman.org)

They further note that historically elements of hypnosis have been an integral part of pagan religious practices and world religions including Assyro-Babylonian exorcism, Egyptian soothsaying, Jewish mysticism, Byzantine Catholicism, Chinese Taoism , Sufism, Hinduism, Shintoism, forms of Buddhism (Tibetan and Zen), and Yoga. (Hypnosis and Behavior Modification, pp. 6-8; ibid).  

In  'Recognitions'  church father Clement records an evil deed of the magician Simon that bears a striking resemblance to the effects of modern psycho-technologies.   Clement reports that Simon had begun to commit murder by inducing a child to experience an out of body situation.  By way of mesmerizing,

"...abominable incantations he separated the soul of a child from its own body, that it might become his assistant for the production of whatever apparition he might require.  And he drew a likeness of the boy, and keeps it set up in the inner chamber where he sleeps, affirming that he...formed him of air by transformations such as the gods cause..." (Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember, p. 181)

In his interpretation of this dark passage, G.H. Pember concluded,

"...by mesmerism Simon had drawn out the spirit of the boy into a higher...state, and then omitted to recall it, so that the spirit had finally separated from the body; and that he had done this for the purpose of procuring a (spirit) familiar....Simon....denied the murder of the boy by asserting that he had merely resolved a spirit-form which he had himself produced." (p. 182)

In his 'Apology'  church father Tertullian writes that if magicians can produce apparitions, bring into evil repute the spirits of men who are dead,

"....mesmerize boys to obtain an oracular response...perform many wonders...by their conjuring illusions; send dreams by the aiding power of angels and demons whom they have...summoned to their assistance; through whose influence also goats and tables have been made to divine; how much more will that Satanic power be zealous to do with all its strength, of its own will, and for its own purposes, that which it does to serve the ends of others." (Pember, pp. 184-185)

A mere eighty years ago, America began moving away from its' founding Biblical-based worldview, and today by all appearances we are in the midst of an unprecedented and all-encompassing spiritual transformation of consciousness, a counter-conversion from belief in the God of the bible to acceptance of Luciferian New Age spirituality in its every false teaching and manifestation.   On the theological front, contemporary liberal and rationalistic theologians within the whole body of the church continue to either trivialize or outright deny the existence of  sin, hell, Satan and demons.   In the face of advancing chaos and demonic oppression in its every form they are utterly impotent, less than useless.

The clearest answer to the chaotic conditions of our times is found in the Bible.  We are living in the Last Days.  History is winding down and Satan is mobilizing his forces for a final all-out assault--- which we are already experiencing (1 Tim. 4:1 and 2; Tim. 3:1-4)  The demonic realm is brazenly interacting with our own realm, and it is in this light that we can understand the growing epidemic of madness, extremism, suicide, depression, apathy, apostasy, lawlessness, and hatred appearing on every side. 

We are living in the days of a demonic nature, said Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987).  For over fifty years Dr. Koch's name has been synonymous with authoritative and biblical insights and help for all who desire to understand or escape from the mesmerizing influence of the occult and demonic world. 

 Civilization is marching toward its own destruction said Koch, and if we fail therefore to take our stand at the foot of the cross,

"... fail to build our house upon the Rock, (we will) be swept away by the turmoil of the End-times."  (Demonology Past and Present, Koch, p. 37)
