Central Concept II - Global Unity
Global Unity is the second of the two main doctrines that drives the New Age machine. It means that when humanity collectively accepts and experiences itself as being divine, we will not only save ourselves, we will save our world and enter the Age of Aquarius.
The Coming Age of Aquarius
The zodiac or a wheel of twelve signs mirrors the constellations found on the sun's path. We are perhaps most familiar with the fact that each sign represents an approximate 30 day a period of the year. However, the signs also represent what is called an 'astrological age 'or time period, each of which takes about 25,860 years to complete. When one cycle of the twelve astrological ages is completed, another cycle of twelve ages begins.
Each age is said to be strongly marked by certain characteristics that many astrologers claim affects us - particularly in regard to culture, society, religion, spirituality, etc. Although there is no agreement on the exact dates of the beginning or ending, most agree that we entered the Age of Aquarius around the end of the 20th century - thus we are currently in a transitional phase from the age of Pisces with its emphasis on formal religion to the age of Aquarius or the age of enlightenment.
While some point out that there can also be a negative aspect, the age of Aquarius is universally believed to be - if not exactly a 2000 year 'Golden Age' - certainly a long period in which people will (on the whole) live a happier and more peaceful existence than they do now. Mankind will be enlightened enough to avoid many of the pitfalls that so plague us today and will come together and probably even achieve world peace.
It would take someone with a few loose screws to not want such a future - Except for one very alarming problem.
And The Reappearance of The Christ
A large section of the New Ager movement contends that the utopian age will only come about under the leadership and guidance of a world leader/teacher who will soon emerge on the world's stage and save the world from sliding into chaos by teaching us to live at peace and unity with each other - thus ushering in the "new Age"
By The Way - Christians have known that for a very, very long time that there will be a New Earth and unlike the Age philosophy tells us exactly what it will be like. See The Message of The Bible.
He will be accompanied by his cronies (the Ascended Masters, the Brotherhood, the Masters of the Wisdom, the Hierarchy of Light etc.) who, through thousands of years of evolutionary progress and numerous reincarnations, are now said to be highly evolved spiritual beings.
They believe that "Christ is not a person - but an office. And although Jesus of Nazareth occupied the office during His active ministry, He no longer holds the same position. Today the office is occupied by someone else who is greater than them all and who is presently in the process of establishing contact with humanity.  Many believe that this leader, having achieved godhood, will possess unparalleled wisdom and knowledge.
Throughout history, when humanity has reached a major point of crisis, the Spiritual Hierarchy has sent a Teacher to show the way forward. The most well-known of these divine messengers are Krishna, Buddha, Confucius, Jesus and Mohammed. Each of their teachings gave birth to a new religion.
IPS Note: Yet each of them contradicted the others on the most crucial of all questions... whether or not there is only one God and, if there is only one, who He is, how we relate to Him, what happens to us after we die etc. See Contradictory Claims
Virtually every spiritual tradition now expects the return of their revered Teacher to validate the past and to carry on the teaching. Christians await the Christ; Jews, the Messiah; Muslims, the Imam Mahdi or Messiah; Buddhists, the Fifth Buddha; and Hindus, the Lord Krishna. In the esoteric tradition, one individual - the World Teacher is seen as the fulfillment of all these expectations. 
Thus, one the main goals of the New Age movement has become a concerted effort to facilitate what is called "The Reappearance of The Christ". Heralded as the 'salvation of earth' or the 'new earth', this movement has gathered immense size and power along the way, and is poised to come to fruition.
While it would be ludicrous to suggest that everyone that buys a crystal, a book on Feng Shui, or attends a Tai Chi class, endorses or is even aware of this new "world consciousness" or a one-world leader, the fact remains that many do. It is without doubt that thousands of people around the globe are actively and knowingly working towards the reappearance of the World Spiritual Teacher.
The Global Alliance
Much More than A Few Kooks
If at this point the thought has crossed your mind that these beliefs are limited to a few 'crazies' spread across the globe, you could not be more wrong.
An incredibly huge network of groups, trusts, foundations, clubs, religious groups etc. have become focused on making changes not only at an individual, but global level. By means of occult mediation (especially conducted on or around the full moon) and The Great Invocation, literally hundreds of organizations and hundreds of thousands of individuals, deeply committed to uplifting global consciousness as a whole, are actively working towards creating the conditions necessary for this 'world teacher' to make his appearance. Whether we are aware of it or not, all the doctrines and practices that focus on raising one's spirituality, or cause one to experience a deeper spiritual reality, are each doing their bit towards elevating 'global consciousness', and is contributing to the success of this enormous "plan".
And this 'plan' has reached the upper echelons of society, politics and influential organizations. For example, Steve Rother, president of Lightworkers, who "channels the loving entities simply known as the Group" has presented the material from the group five times at the United Nations. 
In fact, it is perhaps at the United Nations that the infernal influence of the New Age is the most ominous. In fact it would not be a stretch to say that the UN is neck deep) in the mire of the most insidious evil ever. Influential powers at this supposedly secular organization are now openly paving the way for the Antichrist.
See The Global Alliance
that should suffice to give the reader an inkling of the magnitude of the great darkness that is sweeping the world.
Lucis Trust formerly Lucifer Publishing Co, founded in the 1920s by Alice Bailey, enjoys "Consultative Status" with the United Nations...
The World Goodwill group, founded in 1932, is particularly important among Lucis Trust's activities, as it has been recognized by the United Nations as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), and is represented at regular briefing sessions at the United Nations in New York and Geneva. Lucis Trust is therefore a member of the UN Economic and Social Council. (Wikipedia)
The Lucis Trust has not only spawned several other organization... the Arcane School, Triangles, World Goodwill, Lucis Publishing, Lucis Productions, Lucis Trust Libraries, the New Group of World Servers, but also maintain the UN meditation room. And the purpose of these groups? At their core ALL of them exist for one purpose. As Alice Bailey put it... (capitalization in original)
"the helping of the Great Ones and the rendering to Them of that intelligent assistance which will make Their plans for humanity materialize." 
The Aquarian Age Community
Also disturbing is that the fact that the Aquarian Age Community is promoting the reappearance of this world leader from within the United Nations headquarters. A page on meditation on the Aquarian Age Community site posts the meditation schedule for 2009, which will take place in the United Nations Meditation Room and is open to the public and which correspond with the Full Moon phases for 2009, which as Alice Bailey taught, are especially fruitful times for spiritual work because an abundance of spiritual energy is available.
So, on the days of the full moon, people are meditating and reciting the Great Invocation in the UN meditation room, under the wing of the AAC, an organization that is actively preparing the way for the reappearance of the World Teacher "that Great Being Whom the Christian calls the Christ; He is known also in the Orient as the Bodhisattva, and as the Lord Maitreya...

2000+ Year Old Scriptural Warnings
A "Messiah" or The Antichrist?
Q. But, can any of this be verified by the Scriptures?
A. The answer to which question is a resounding Yes!
We could have dismissed much of these beliefs and teachings as the ranting of people more than slightly touched in the head if it were not for the fact that the Scriptures pretty much back up most of what the occultists say. Except, of course that the Bible is very clear that this world teacher (who is undoubtedly already on this earth, but has not yet risen to prominence) is not a savior or Messiah, but the antichrist.
Long, long before any human even dreamed of a coming 'world teacher', the Bible warned us that in the last days, just such a man would show up on the world stage. Both Jesus and Paul spoke of a man who would dominate much of the world and whose very presence would herald the end of the age.
See The End of The Age
The coming Kingdom of God which Jesus said He was sent to proclaim is no pie in the sky ethereal place 'somewhere out there', but matches, in every respect, the world most men and women would choose to live in... a place of peace and safety, where there is no crime, hunger and disease, no war and, above all, no death. (See What and Where is Heaven below) However, no unrighteous, evil, unmerciful, murderous, arrogant, malicious, greedy or deceitful person will ever be a part of His eternal Kingdom. Which means, He has to first 'clean house'.
However the Bible paints a very different picture of this coming 'world teacher', calling him a "man of sin" or, as mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2, a "son of perdition", who will pretend to be god.
Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? (2 Thessalonians 2:3-5 NASB)
This world leader is also referred to in the Old Testament book of Daniel as "the little horn" that overpowers Christians... Please note that the Bible refers to believers as 'saints'. According to Baker's Evangelical Dictionary, 'saint' is derived from a Greek verb (hagiazo) whose basic meaning is "to set apart, " "sanctify, " or "make holy." See What is Holiness?
While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering great boasts... I kept looking, and that horn was waging war with the saints and overpowering them (Daniel 7:8, 21 NASB)
The same events are referred to in similar language in Revelation 13. (If this man is given "authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation", he is obviously some kind of world leader).
There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven. It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain. (Revelation 13:5-8 NASB)
Benjamin Creme endeavors to refute the claim that this 'world leader" will be the anti-christ claiming that three groups (Hitler and Nazi Germany, Japanese militarists in Japan, and Mussolini's people in Italy) "embodied the energy we call the anti-christ". 
However, the axis powers of WWII did not wage war with the saints, did not have authority over 'every tribe and people and tongue and nation", and were not worshipped by all who dwell on earth. Creme's version of the antichrist being an energy is just some more codswallop ].
Yet another warning issued by the Father is particularly relevant to the New Age
The Warning About False Christs
The New Age teaching that we are all "Christ" is very much part of the very deception the real Christ warned would precede His coming and the coming of His Kingdom.
Note: this is just one more bit of evidence of the Divine inspiration of the Bible.
If everyone is 'Christ', it makes no sense for Jesus to warn of false 'Christs'. In fact, there cannot even be false 'Christs'..
And Jesus answered and said to them, "See to it that no one misleads you. "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many. (Matthew 24:4-5 NASB)
"Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and they shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth; behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not." (Matthew 24:23-26)
Many will come in My name, saying, 'I am He!' and will mislead many. (Mark 13:6 NASB)
Also See The Anointing
Regarding the last of the three quotes above, some Scriptural versions say "I am Christ" - others say "I am He". However, neither the words Christ nor He were in the original texts, but added later possibly for clarification. Although the additions do not change the meaning, the text actually reads "Many shall come in My name saying I AM". This is exactly what thousands in the New Age Movement are claiming.... I AM (god).
It is very clear that Jesus is not telling everyone to awaken to the Christ within, but to beware of those who tell you to do that – to beware of Eric Butterworth, Oprah Winfrey, Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson and anyone else who teaches that we are unrealized Christs.
As It Was In The Days of Noah
Also pay close attention to the parallels between occult literature and what God Himself has told us in His word... In the many years she spent communicating messages from her ectoplasmic non-human friend Djhwal Khul (The Tibetan), Alice Bailey once wrote that
the spiritual Hierarchy can "bring to an end the long silence which has persisted since Atlantean days" and "renew an ancient sharing of secrets." 
"This will indicate a return to the situation which existed in Atlantean days when God Himself walked among men; He talked with them and there was no barrier between the Kingdom of men and the Kingdom of God. Divinity was then present in physical form and the Members of the spiritual Hierarchy were openly guiding and directing the affairs of humanity as far as man's innate freedom permitted. Now, in the immediate future, and on a higher turn of the spiral of life, this will again happen. The Masters will walk openly among men; the Christ will reappear in physical Presence. 
It should be obvious to any Christian that Bailey was talking about the days immediately preceding the Great Flood, when according to her,
there was a "great war between the Lords of form and the Lords of Being", and "the Hierarchy was forced to intervene potently" by bringing "the Atlantean civilization to an abrupt end after a long period of chaos and disaster" by means "of a culminating catastrophe which wiped hundreds of thousands of human beings off the face of the earth. This historical event has been preserved for us in the universal legend of the great flood." 
The days immediately preceding the Great Flood were the days of Noah. Note what does the Bible say about those days..
Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. Then the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. (Genesis 6:1-4 NASB)
And why should this concern us? Simply because Our Lord linked these two epochs together and said that one is the parallel of the other. If we are living in the days immediately preceding the return of Jesus Christ we shall find similar conditions to the days of Noah.
"And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: (Luke 17:26 NASB) (Also See Matthew 24:37)
One of these days the doors will be open wide enough for evil to cross the threshold, and the "masters" to walk the earth again... As it was in the days of Noah. Albeit with a different slant, Alice Bailey was only reiterating what Scripture said thousands of years ago... beings who are not human will walk the earth again.
You can take it to the bank that they are coming back. See As It Was In The Days Of Noah
This abominable union of the supernatural with the natural is perhaps one of the most bizarre episodes in Scripture, and was the reason that God judged the earth so severely, destroying a contaminated race. When 'the Masters' once more walk openly among us, He will do exactly the same thing... this time for keeps.
