An exciting spirituality, a strange fire, is moving with great speed and force over and across post-Christian America. 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)

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 movement of the 'new' 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 convert American society away from Christianity and to the new spirituality through an assault on schools and churches. He reveals that the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City is the home of the enormously influential Gaia Institute as well as the Temple of Understanding â€” a politically influential U.N. Non-Governmental Organization. DeWeese describes a "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."

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Temple of Understanding, and the Gaia Institute are parts of a Luciferian temple complex which also includes the U.N.'s pyramid-shaped meditation room and Lucis Trust, originally named Lucifer Publishing, repository of the "Ageless Wisdom Teachings," or channeled messages from the Brothers that all together form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a progressive vision of spiritualized totalitarianism that includes praise for Lucifer.
Among those who have channeled the Brothers are Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Robert Muller (U.N's Assistant Secretary General for 40 years), Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh.
Who or what are the Brothers? They are the Transcended Masters and Elder Spirits who will provide spiritual guidance in the coming NWO: http://one-faith-of-god.org/officials/officials_master_spirits.asp
Their return was foretold during the 1940s. Speaking through the Theosophist Alice Bailey, Djwhal Khul (one of the Brothers) said the Brothers 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," the spirit "Masters will walk openly among men...openly guiding and directing the affairs of humanity." (False Dawn, p. 262)
In his classic work "Earth's Earliest Ages," (1876) G.H. Pember examines the role of satanic forces from the pre-flood world to his own time and compares them to the rise of spiritism, Theosophy, and Buddhism, all of which had appeared in and overswept Christendom during his time. Pember speaks of the Brothers as the Brotherhood and reveals that they are evil spirits who have,
"become so etherealized by their practices that they are unable to endure contact with coarse human nature; it was therefore, necessary to employ intermediaries." (p. 245)
Pember adds, "The advances of Modern Science, and especially the spread of evolutionary philosophy, having fitted the world for deeper teaching, the Brothers decided that the time had come to communicate with it, and openly influence its religion and philosophy." (p. 245)
The first person known to have been chosen for this purpose was Madame Blavatsky, said Pember. Blavatsky was a Theosophist who spent "seven years under the immediate direction of the Brothers, and was initiated and instructed for her mission. She (then) proceeded to America (and) organized the Theosophical Society, at New York (in 1875)." (p. 245-246)
Among the chief aims of the Brotherhood said Pember, is the creation of a Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, the revival of the latent spirit-powers of mankind, and the destruction of true Christian theism.
Today the Brothers are communicating with vast numbers of people. As the loving being of light encountered during Near Death Experiences to Transcended Masters and Elder Spirits as well as spirit guides calling themselves god, christ, and jesus, among other names. The Brothers are the Kundalini spirit at work in the Charismatic church (False spirits invade the church â€“ KUNDALINI WARNING â€“ Andrew Strom) as well as the Kundalini spirit at work today in numerous persons who are devoting themselves to "new" contemplative prayer, a hybridized version that is pantheistic (God is all) and panentheistic (God is in all). To Carl Jung, a Brother was his spirit-guru Philemon. For the followers of the "modern religion" that has grown around UFO beliefs, the Brothers are extraterrestrials calling themselves the Space Brothers, said Gary Bates, author of "Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection."
Bates notes that the Space Brothers are believed to be more "highly evolved, both physically and spiritually, than human beings, and that they are here to "help us" and oversee our own "evolution.....Countless people have been led to reject conventional spiritual beliefs...in light of the "weight of UFO evidence." (p.21)
Increasing numbers of Christians are succumbing to UFOlogy as well, said Bates. They now believe that UFOs parted the Red Sea (Exodus 14:16â€“40), that Moses was spoken to out of the burning bush via a radio transmission beamed down from the mother ship (Exodus 3:2â€“6), and that Elijah was raptured onto an awaiting spacecraft (2 Kings 2:11â€“12). (Christians shaped by experiences rather than the â€˜Bible firstâ€™ approach, Bates, Creation Ministries International, 2007)
Bates remarks that The Mammoth Encyclopedia of Extraterrestrial Encounters has a history of UFOs and alien/demonic descriptions, including their changing shapes, throughout the ages. Secular researcher John Keel also linked UFOs to the demonic. He wrote,
â€˜The Devil and his demons can, according to the literature, manifest themselves in almost any form and can physically imitate anything from angels to horrifying monsters with glowing eyes. Strange objects and entities materialize and dematerialize in these stories, just as the UFOs and their splendid occupants appear and disappear, walk through walls, and perform other supernatural feats. â€¦ The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not entirely identical, to the UFO phenomenon itself. Victims of demonomania [possession] suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees. â€¦â€™ (Aliens, evolution and the occult, Bates, Creation Ministries International, 2007)
His conclusions sounding eerily similar to 1 Tim 4:1, UFOlogist Dr. Jacques Vallee warns that the ultimate goal of the Space Brothers is control of human beliefs:
â€˜....what takes place through close encounters with UFOs is control of human beliefs, control of the relationship between our consciousness and physical reality (and) this control has been in force throughout history... â€™ (ibid)
The spirit world is moving closer to us, manifesting itself through channeled messages from Transcended Masters, close encounters with Space Brothers, Mothman sightings, NDEs, occult mystical out-of-body experiences, dream works, 'new' contemplative prayer, Charismatic 'revelations,' Ouija boards, and mind-altering drugs.
By any name, the Brothers are deceptive spirits whose leader is Satan, the father of lies. They have appeared in all manner of disguises throughout history in order to deceive mankind. Gary Bates writes:
"They hate humans, especially those who belong to Jesus. They canâ€™t be saved (and wouldnâ€™t want to be even if it were possible), and they donâ€™t want humans to be saved either. They know that they await eternal judgment, so they want to drag as many humans with them as possible." ("Ghosts, experience, and the Bible," Bates, CMI, 2012)
