This is a long article, but I see no way to condense it. The sheer magnitude and importance of the topic warrants detailed information. As Warren Smith so rightly says, When storms with the potential to kill are just offshore, reasonable people make reasonable preparations. They don't party in the face of the impending danger. They don't sit on their front porches pretending that nothing is happening.
Jesus warned in Scripture that storms would come. He particularly warned about those that would come at the end of time, not to be negative or to scare us, but to prepare us, so that we would not be deceived nor intimidated, nor frightened into compromising or questioning our faith. This is not a time for celebration. This is not a time for the church to be expecting some kind of a special blessing. This is a time to be sober and vigilant.. to watch and pray... to be spiritually prepared... to be warning your family and friends about what is happening in the world. In the words of the apostle Peter...
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: (1 Peter 5:8–9)
Note: the first part of the article deals with some generalities about the New Age... origins, general beliefs, popularity, hybridization & expansion etc. It is the second part of the article that deal with a specific aspect of the New Age beliefs and practices that is crucially important.
Note Also that I have, as always, hesitated to use the word "demonic" or "demons", simply because both words tend to conjure up visions of what we perceive devils to look like... horns, tails, bad teeth, red eyes and pitchforks... beings that are slightly more amusing than intimidating. However, the "masters" referred to here do not even faintly resemble our preconceived ideas. Much to the contrary, they are very powerful, highly intelligent beings, with immense powers and abilities... against whom our only defense is God.
