The New Age... An Overview...
Part II

Carol Brooks

what is particularly alarming is that many New Agers contend that Buddha, Muhammad, Confucius, Jesus, and many others were "christs", but one greater than all of them will soon come to usher in the New Age.

“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons” [1 Timothy 4:1 NASB]

The Message of the Bible   and  The Warnng of The Bible
Far from being outdated, out of touch, and largely irrelevant to modern society, the Kingdom of God Jesus was sent to earth to proclaim (No, His main message wasn’t about ‘love’) is exactly the utopian world most men and women can only dream of, not some pie-in-the-sky ethereal place the other side of Pluto where everyone exists in a state of disembodied blessedness. However, there is also a warning. The Bible very clearly tells us that we all have a choice to make in this life - the most important decision we will ever make. And, if the Bible is indeed the word of God, as it claims to be, and Jesus is the Son of God as He said He was, the consequences for the individual who chooses to ignore the ample evidence, or counter it with clever arguments, will be fatal.

Choose Life That You Might Live. It is tragically true that few of those who believe 'all spiritual beliefs are valid paths to God" seem to have made an in depth study of various religions to see if their claims are based on fact, or fairy dust. In fact, all too many people seem to be prejudiced against the Bible, but well disposed towards other 'holy books' like the Qur’an, the Bhagavad-Gita, the Book of Mormon or the  unsubstantiated gobbledygook spouted by ‘spirit guides’ who do not even present a shred of evidence that they are who they claim to be. This is a rather illogical situation, because there is far a plethora of evidence in favor of the Bible being true, including it's humanly impossible authorship, the scientific, historical and archaeological corroboration, and the many fulfilled prophecies... none of which are seen in the books of other religions/beliefs.

The Coming Age of Aquarius and The “Reappearance of The Christ”
The many headed hydra called the New Age has, over the last couple of decades, become even more sinister with every passing year. While most share a common vision ... the present phase of human existence is one of transition from the Piscean Age of rationality, to the Aquarian Age of spirituality, and harmony of all things.

That the New Age is within our reach may not, in itself, sound too bad.

However, what is particularly alarming is that while many New Agers may merely subscribe to some elements of New Age philosophies, A large branch of the New Age movement believes that the utopian age will only come about under the leadership and guidance of a world leader/teacher.  They contend that Buddha, Muhammad, Confucius, Jesus, and many others were "christs", but one greater than all of them... a "World Teacher" will soon come to usher in the New Age.

As said by Warren Smith

    According to the "new gospel, "Christ is not a person. It is an office. The "new gospel" teaches that while Jesus of Nazareth occupied the office during His active ministry, He no longer holds that same position. Today the office of "Christ" is occupied by someone else. And this "someone else" is presently in the process of establishing contact with humanity. This "Christ" intimates that he is already in the world awaiting mankind's call.

     Concerned that humanity is in peril and facing possible extinction, this "Christ" explains that his "new gospel" will unify the world's major religions and bring peace to the world. He has communicated these "new gospel" teachings to his designated teachers, who in turn are now conveying these same teachings to the rest of the world.

     This "reinvented" Christ of the "new gospel" teaches that all of humanity is the body of Christ. He, as the "Christ," is the head. This "Christ" states humanity's dilemma is that we have forgotten who we are. We are not "sinners" separate from God. We are all part of the one body of Christ and the one body of God. Salvation does not come by grace from accepting Jesus Christ as the Son of God. Rather it is achieved — when we accept ourselves as Christ and when we accept ourselves as God.

     The "new gospel" teaches that when humanity collectively accepts and experiences itself as being a part of Christ and a part of God, we not only save ourselves, we save our world. The "Christ" of the "new gospel" warns that the hour is late. Peace must come. He will help. He has a plan. But everyone must play their part. [32]

They believe, and teach, that the world has to be prepared for this one-world leader who is called by various names including The Christ, Sanat Kumara or Maitreya, and who will, in human form, come as a saviour to save the world from sliding into chaos, teaching us to live at peace and unity with each other. He will begin preparing humanity for the advent of the Age of Aquarius... a glorious New Age millennium. Many believe that this leader, possibly a man who has achieved godhood, will possess unparalleled wisdom and knowledge and perhaps psychic abilities to boot.

In other words, one the main goals of the New Age movement has become a concerted effort to facilitate what is called "The Reappearance of The Christ".

With this ultimate goal in mind, 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.

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.

    BTW... This concept of a coming World Teacher who sets up a Golden Age on earth can be found in many world religious systems, as well as in the literature of the occult. Perhaps the term "world teacher" becomes a little more clear if Christians would wake up and realize that this 'Christ' (messiah) has nothing to do with Jesus Christ of the Bible, which leaves us with but one other choice... the anti-christ that the Scriptures warned us about. The Bible tells that there will be a period of time when God will permit Satan to actually rule on this earth in person.

The Maitreya
Share International is a "worldwide network of individuals and groups whose purpose is to make known the fact that Maitreya... the World Teacher for the coming age and his group, the Masters of Wisdom, are now among us, emerging into the public arena ... gradually, so as not to infringe human free will." [33].

They inform us that The Plan is overseen by a hierarchy of spirit-entities popularly called the Ascended Masters (or Masters of Wisdom, Spirit Guides), highly evolved spiritual beings that are alleged to be overseeing the spiritual and 'evolutionary' development of the human race on both an individual and global level. And that Benjamin Crème, "a British artist and long-time student of esoteric philosophy, has become the principal source of information about the emergence of Maitreya, the World Teacher”. [34]. He was contacted by one of the "Ascended Masters," and told that he had a mission to perform for the advancement of the Masters' plan for humanity. Creme himself writes

    It is an enormous, and embarrassing, claim to have to make - that the Christ is giving messages through oneself. But if people can rid their minds of the idea of the Christ as some sort of spirit, sitting in 'heaven' as God's right hand; if they can begin to see Him as indeed He is, a real and living man (albeit a Divine man - Who has never left the world; Who descended, not from 'heaven', but from His ancient retreat in the Himalayas, to complete the task He began in Palestine; as a great Master; an Adept and Yogi; as the chief actor in a Gospel Story which is essentially true, but much simpler than hitherto presented; if people can accept that possibility, the claim to receive telepathic communications from such a closer and more knowable Being is also, perhaps, more acceptable. In any case, I leave it to a study of the quality of the Messages themselves to convince or otherwise.  [35]

The Share web site has one of the clearest outlines of who they believe the coming "World Teacher" and the "Masters of Wisdom to be, what their function has been through the past centuries, and what it will be in the future. Please pay very careful attention to the following, as what you believe about this teaching and, more importantly, what you do with it, has eternal consequences. 

Creme writes that they are... 

    ".. men who, through thousands of years of evolutionary progress and numerous reincarnations, have advanced to a high degree of stewardship over the cosmos". [36]

A page on the Share web site entitled "The Ageless Wisdom Teachings", says that the Masters of Wisdom (Spiritual Hierarchy) [All Emphasis Added]
 

    are the custodians of the Divine Plan for this planet. They have inspired all the great human achievements, working from behind the scenes through their disciples in every field of endeavor. The Masters guide and teach, but it is humanity itself, responding of its own free will to their stimulus, which creates each new civilization. Today, the Masters are returning to the outer world as a group for the first time in countless millennia.

And goes on to say...

    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.

    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.

    The World Teacher for the current time is Maitreya, the 'eldest brother' in the human family and head of the Spiritual Hierarchy. Preferring to be known simply as the Teacher, Maitreya has not come to found a new religion, but to act as a guide and counselor for all humanity - regardless of religious affiliation.

    Having perfected and fully manifested within himself the Divine Will, Love, Wisdom and Intelligence of God, Maitreya will reveal a new aspect of God. He will lead us to the recognition of our own divinity and our true identity as souls. Out of this greater spiritual understanding and creative power will come a new lovingness, harmony and joy. [37]

This ideology is also clearly expressed by The Seven Ray Institute and The University of the Seven Rays, who say their organizations "serve as vehicles for the presentation of the Ageless Wisdom teachings at this time of preparation for the return of the World Teacher". [36]. Partially quoting Alice Bailey's book The Reappearance of the Christ (Lucis Publishing Company, 1948, p. 8) Their site says

    Throughout the ages, especially during times of difficulty, people have looked with a sense of expectancy and hope for someone greater than themselves to bring solace to their lives. Someone is expected and anticipated by the masses of people - a great teacher, a savior... someone who can bring an end to the suffering and who can restore a sense of order and balance in the world. Such teachers have ever come in times of difficulty and crisis, when the problems confronting us seemed beyond our capacity to adequately resolve and today will be no different. They have been defined as '"extraordinary men Who from time to time appear to change the face of the world and inaugurate a new era in the destinies of humanity." 1 They come to bring to an end the old and the undesirable ways of living and being and to make way for the new forms that will more adequately house the incoming light. They come in times of excess and apparent darkness--when humanity has lost its way. And for this very reason, if for no other, such a Teacher may be looked for at this time. [37]

According to the Aquarian Age Community, a non-profit, accredited non-governmental organization (NGO) in association with the United Nation's Department of Public Information, this World Teacher is...

    "... that Great Being Whom the Christian calls the Christ; He is known also in the Orient as the Bodhisattva, and as the Lord Maitreya, and is the One looked for by the devout Mohammedan, under the name of the Iman Madhi. [38]

This radical adjustment in the perception of reality, which is taking place today, will lead to the transition to a new era... also called the "Shift of the Ages", or The "Planetary Pentecost".


The "Shift" or Planetary Pentecost
Recent and influential New Age thinkers have spoken about a coming global cataclysmic event using varied terminology ... a "Planetary Pentecost", shift, awakening, transition, transformation, global or universal consciousness, rethinking, or re-imagining. In other words the present phase of human existence is one of transition.. A radical adjustment in the perception of reality is taking place which will lead to the transition to a new era... also called the "Shift of the Ages". Shirley MacLaine, who has long been a celebrity spokeswoman for the New Age, says...

    "There are those who feel we are into the ‘Shift of the Ages' . . . The shift is supposed to occur somewhere between the 1980's and through 2012 . . . I feel all of this is happening now... karmic issues will be resolved. We will go through a healing process which will also be extremely painful because we will be detoxing.. I call it Karma-geddon. Instead of Armageddon, a Karma-geddon will be occurring which will be the resolution of all our karmic issues down through the ages. Therefore . . . the world will shed the old ways of living . . ." [39]

Barbara Marx Hubbard... former Vice Presidential candidate, now known as a "visionary", futurist, author, and public speaker says [Emphasis Added]

    "The Planetary Smile is another name for the Planetary Pentecost. When enough of us share a common thought of our oneness with God, Spirit will be poured out on all flesh paying attention". [40].

    From within all sensitive persons will feel the joy of the force flooding their systems with love and attraction. As this joy floods though the nervous systems of the most sensitive persons on earth, it will create a psychomagnetic field of empathy.... This massive sudden emphatic alignment will cause a shift of consciousness of Earth." As a result of this, she says, "The 'christ' will appear to you all at once." [41].

    The alternative to Armageddon is a Planetary Pentecost.  It will be a time when a critical mass of people will hear from within - in their own voices and languages- the inner voice of God. [42]

Although the wording has since been changed, a page on her website [43] used to ask the question..

    "ARE YOU . . . Ready to cocreate a whole new world?
    Willing to take your next step in your own personal evolution?
    Seeking to join with others around the world committed to doing the same?
    Great!
    Then join us on a powerful evolutionary journey."

Benjamin Crème adds [Emphasis Added]

    "On the Day of Declaration, I submit, everyone — even the fundamentalists — will know, through the overshadowing of the minds of all humanity — a pentecostal experience for all — that Maitreya is the Christ" [44]

Eckhart Tolle, in talking about consciousness at a planetary level, said, not too long ago...

    "For the first time in history of humanity, large numbers of people have reached that point of readiness, which explains why millions have responded so deeply to The Power of Now... It would transform the world. It is the next step in human evolution, or one can even say the coming into existence of a new species. I don't imagine what the new earth would look like, but I'm sure it would seem to us almost like a different planet." [45]

Hollywood is not far behind with the Shift of the Ages project. Apparently... "Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj is the head of the National Mayan Council of Elders of Guatemala, Day Keeper of the Mayan Calendar, a 13th generation Quiche Mayan High Priest, a Grand Elder of the Continental Council of Elders & Spiritual Guides of the Americas, and an international lecturer on Mayan Culture" [Emphasis Added]

    ...."has been sent as a messenger by the Council of Invisible Beings to warn the world that we are at a critical crossroads for the future of our Earth. The message is simple and clear: we must change the way we live NOW".

    He therefore "asked Producer and Filmmaker Steve Copeland to document his life's story, the sacred saga of Maya creation, & ancient prophecies that are being fulfilled at this very moment”. [46]

Steve Copeland: the Director of the Shift of the Ages project says

    "What I have gathered from interviews with indigenous elders is that we are in the midst of a transition that was predicted eons ago and is presently progressing with increasing intensity and acceleration...In addition to the indigenous people, a vast majority of the world's religions also refer to our present time as one that harbors a big-shift - "The Shift of the Ages". I have interviewed the elders and scholars from a broad spectrum of cultures and most amazing thing for me is how similar the various traditions prophecies, perspectives, and detailed accounts of past transitions are in relation to each other. From Peru to Siberia, I have found common ground in the interpretation of their records". [47]

Ads for the film also tell us that

    "At this time light-workers are unifying, forming alliances and underground networks to assist the mainstream with this great human transition"


Implementing 'The Plan'
However, not only do these organizations present what they call "ageless wisdom" teachings, but they are doing everything they can to create the conditions necessary for the Reappearance of The Christ. For example, the Aquarian Age Community is very clear that their organization.... Emphasis Added]

    "Cooperates and collaborates with the worldwide community that is actively preparing the way for the reappearance of the World Teacher — the Christed (Anointed) One, the true Aquarian. [48]

In her book Externalization of the Hierarchy, Alice Bailey made it clear that she believed that

    "for the first time" mankind is "intelligently participating and cooperating" in the "entire evolutionary process." [Pg.685].

But how will man aid spiritual beings return to earth? There are, apparently, two effective ways to "materialize" the Hierarchy's plan for humanity ...

    1) Raising Global Consciousness by means of Occult Meditation.

    2) the reciting of The Great Invocation given Alice Bailey by her demonic pal Djwhal Khul. The term invocation means an appeal to a higher power for assistance, and The Great Invocation has been described as a call for "the Christ to return to Earth". More about The Great Invocation.


1) Raising Global Consciousness
This expansive idea is centered around the birth of a new world consciousness. It is believed that it will come to fruition when enough people are "trained to implement The Plan and prepare for the reappearance of the Christ". For reasons little understood.. when the consciousness (or spirituality) of humanity has been raised enough, The Plan can be put into effect.

    "Salvation lies in the realization of oneness with the impersonal life force. Awareness can be heightened through methods that induce altered states of consciousness, e.g., hypnosis, meditation, music, drugs. Spiritual "tools" include crystals, tarot cards, amulets, channeling, fortunetellers and psychics. Some believe the salvation of humanity will occur when a critical mass is reached, when people converge in experiencing their oneness with God and with each other. This will bring a New World Order or new Planetary Order, resulting in oneness of civilization and one-world government, peace, and harmony". [49]

Before his book A New Earth was published, Eckhart Tolle said that it would be about "Spiritual awakening". When asked if a person can be awakened spiritually by a book, he replied

    Yes, if three conditions are met: Firstly, there must be a readiness on the part of the reader, an openness, a receptivity to spiritual truth, which is to say, a readiness to awaken. For the first time in history of humanity, large numbers of people have reached that point of readiness..." [50]

He got that right! Who knows how many hundreds of thousands of people have "awakened", and who knows how many, or how few, more it will take in order to have altered the energy of the earth enough to bring about the "Reappearance of the Christ".

There are those that believe that the self indulgent narcissism of the New Age isn't transforming anything, but simply causes people to feel better about themselves in the world just as it is. I beg to differ. In our typically Western way, we are rushing in where angels fear to tread. With little regard to the deeper issues behind them, terms and practices that were previously both obscure and esoteric now roll off people's tongues, and find a prominent place in people's daily routines. In other words, whether we are aware of it or not, all our efforts to awaken our own spirituality are contributing to the success of this enormous plan.

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.


2) Occult Meditation
The second method is the practice of occult meditation, of which the Lucis Trust says.. [Emphasis Added]

    "Occult meditation is a means of consciously and purposefully directing energy from a recognised source to the creation of some specific effect" [51]

Share International calls it 'Transmission Meditation'

    Transmission Meditation is a group service activity which 'steps down' the great spiritual energies that continually stream into our planet. During transmission, the Masters of Wisdom direct these energies from the spiritual planes through the energy centers (chakras) of the group members in a highly scientific manner. This process, which makes the energies more useful to humanity and the other kingdoms in nature, is similar to that of electrical transformers, which step down the power between generators and household outlets. [52]

The Gaiafield Project says they develop "subtle activism" practices, theories, and programs. Apparently, "Subtle activism involves harnessing the power of consciousness-based practices like meditation and prayer to support collective transformation, as in a globally synchronized meditation for peace"  [53]

They also say

    "By building a collective map, we hope to demonstrate in an tangibly visual way that we live in a world full of many caring people "beaming" the change they wish to see in the world." [54]


Spiritual Energies At The Full Moon
Lucis Trust informs us that "there are cycles in the ebb and flow of spiritual energies with which groups, as well as individuals, can consciously cooperate" and one of the major energy cycles "coincides with the phases of the moon, reaching its peak, its high tide, at the time of the full moon. This is a time, therefore, when the channelling of energy through group meditation can be uniquely effective". And

    "The time of the full moon is a period when spiritual energies are uniquely available and facilitate a closer rapport between humanity and the Hierarchy". [55]

Bailey taught that certain moments of the year are especially fruitful times for spiritual work because an abundance of spiritual energy is available. [All Emphasis Added]

    "Such a time is the monthly period of the full moon, when members of the school gather on the evening of the full moon to meditate and transmit energy. On three full moon dates the great festivals Easter, Wesak, and Goodwill take place. The festival of Easter does not follow either of the Christian calendars, but is celebrated on the full moon in April as the time of the most active forces for the restoration of the Christ. In May, Wesak is the time when the Buddha's forces are available. In June, at the full moon, the forces of reconstruction are active". [56]

See The Legend of Wesak

The Aumara Light & Healing Circle says

    "The Full Moon is the time when the moon opposes the sun by 180 degrees and reflects the greatest amount of the sun's light. At this time the spiritual energies are especially intense, making it a time of increased awareness and conscious- ness, and a most suitable time for meditation on both personal and global issues. [57]

Which is why the scheduled meditation that takes place in the United Nations Meditation Room, exactly corresponds with the Full Moon phases.


Each Meditation Session Brings Us Just A Fraction Closer To 'the Plan'
Not only is 'energy' directed towards a specific outcome but it builds on itself and continuously grows. Apparently each meditation session brings us just a fraction closer to ‘The Plan', or as Aumara Light & Healing Circle puts it.. “to ensure the awakening of all into the New Age Millennium". [58]

    Today countless serving groups large and small meet regularly throughout the world at the time of the full moon each month for meditation work. It is helpful to realize that such meetings for group meditation as a service to humanity have been held for many decades now. So the work does not start anew every month or every year. Over the years a usable group channel for energy distribution has been created which continuously grows and builds on what has been achieved, and which demands of us at all times a deepened understanding and an increased ability to penetrate to new levels of consciousness, so lifting the consciousness of humanity as a whole even by an immeasurable fraction. [59]

In short.... For the first time in history, a large number of people are actively working towards helping the antichrist and his cohorts take power.


As It Was In The Days of Noah
But, can any of this be verified by the Scriptures?

Unfortunately the answer 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 backs 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.

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." [60]

And

    "This will indicate a return to the situation which existed in Atlantean days when (to use Biblical symbology, Genesis Chaps. 2 and 3) 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. [61]

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." [62]

The days immediately preceding the Great Flood were the days of Noah. Note what does the Bible say about those days..

    "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose. And Jehovah said, My spirit shall not strive with man for ever, for that he also is flesh: yet shall his days be a hundred and twenty years. The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them: the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown. [Genesis 6:1-4].

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.

    "As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man," Luke 17:26. (cf, Matt 24:37)

Albeit with a different slant, Alice Bailey is only reiterating [the "Masters will walk openly among men"] 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.

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.

For Details See Section As It Was In The Days Of Noah


A "Messiah" or The Antichrist?
Some years ago Paul-Henri Spaak, former prime minister of Belgium (1947-1949), President of the United Nations General Assembly (1946 – 1947), and secretary- general of NATO (1957-961) is said to have made the following statement at an EU economic summit

    We do not want another committee, we have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all people, and to lift us out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man, and be he god or devil, we will receive him.'

Please note that I cannot verify this comment and have to wonder if it is true. However, it really does not matter all that much. Whether Spaak actually said these words, or someone else attributed a false comment to him, it is quite indicative of things to come.

Long, long before the alleged quote, the Bible had already warned us that, in the last days, just such a man would show up on the world stage.

It is hardly coincidence that both Jesus and Paul spoke of a man who would dominate much of the world at the close of our present age... whose very presence would herald the end of the age. The world will not have to wait much longer for a man of "sufficient stature" to come along, and receive him they will... with open arms.

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 deceive you by any means; for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is unveiled, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or every object of worship, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? [2 Thessalonians 2:3-5]

The apostle John was the only Biblical author to use the word antichrist (1 John 2:18, 2:22, 4:3, and 2 John 1;7) He tells us that many antichrists, or false teachers, will appear between the time of Christ's first and second coming, but there will be one great antichrist who will rise to power during the end times, or "last hour," as John phrases it. See Antichrists and The Antichrist and The Antichrist

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 word saint in the Bible is a group of people set apart for the Lord and His kingdom. Scripturally speaking, the "saints" are the body of Christ, Christians who are the church.

    "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]

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).

    "..and there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and there was given to him authority to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth for blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, even them that dwell in the heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and there was given to him authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. And all that dwell on the earth shall worship him, every one whose name hath not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that hath been slain. If any man hath an ear, let him hear. [Revelation 13:5-9]

The Share International web site endeavors to refute the claim that this 'world leader" will be the anti-christ... They say

    The anti-christ is not a man who will come out before the Christ, and could even be mistaken for the Christ. This idea comes from an interpretation of the Revelation of St. John: the beast, 666, is unchained for a time, and then chained down for a time and half a time. This passage actually refers to the release of the energy we call the anti-christ. [64]

They then claim that three groups... the Axis powers in WWII (Hitler and Nazi Germany, Japan and Mussolini in Italy) "embodied the energy we call the anti-christ". [65]

However, the antichrist picture does NOT come solely from the 666 of Revelation, but from several references in Scripture, some of which have been quoted above. The axis powers of WWII certainly does not fit the bill, as they 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 little but more than a smoke screen.

Note Also that many consider an "antichrist" to be a person who is "against" Christ. If that were the case, it would be quite unlikely for any Christian to be fooled by such a person. The English word Antichrist (from the Greek antichristos... an-tee'-khris-tos), can mean "against" or "opposed to", but it can also mean "instead of" (instead of Christ). Since the word Christos means messiah or "anointed one", the antichrist could simply mean 'one who seeks to take 'the place of' Christ'. This man could very well be a clever counterfeit of God's Messiah, one who's message is subtle and positive.. a message that will actually appeal to much of the world's population, including Christians. [Excerpt from Antichrists and The Antichrist


The Global Alliance
A Few Kooks Spread Across The Globe?... Not Exactly!
If at this point you are getting the impression that these beliefs are limited to a few 'crazies' around the world, you would not be more wrong. 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.

    The Group first came to Steve Rother in 1996 and since then has given information for a evolving planet that has filled several books now translated into 18 languages. The monthly Beacons of Light - Reminders from Home are translated into 24 languages each month and have been presented at the United Nations five times on two continents. [66]

While it is 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 are. While some are more interested in the paranormal aspect of the movement, it is without doubt that thousands of people around the globe are actively and knowingly working towards the reappearance of the World Spiritual Teacher.

In fact the sheer number of organizations holding to some form of the teachings of Helena Blavatsky (Theosophy), and Alice Bailey (courtesy of Djwhal Khul, her non-human spiritual guide), The Agni Yoga Society etc., and doing what they can to promote the return of the Christ (below) is mind blowing. It is also very alarming is that few, if any, of these organizations seem to work in isolation, but are closely interconnected with many of the others. While I am not sure that we have done more than skim the surface, this page ... The Global Alliance should suffice to give the reader an inkling of the magnitude of the great darkness that is sweeping the world.

However, it is perhaps at the United Nations that the infernal influence of the New Age is the most ominous. The United Nations exists as an official pseudo-governmental body, which also relies on various advisory committees, boards, and other non-governmental organizations (NGO's), two of which concern us here.. the Aquarian Age Community and the Lucis Trust. In fact it would not be a stretch to say that the UN is knee deep (if not 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.

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]

(Incidentally Robert Muller was secretary of the Economic and Social Council of the UN for several years before his retirement in 1986).

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. In their words... 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." [67]

They are focused on making conditions suitable (By occult meditation and reciting of the Great Invocation) for what they call "The Reappearance of The Christ”, and claim "Tens of thousands of people of goodwill throughout the world are using the Great Invocation every day" which makes the next statement rather chilling... [All Emphasis Added]

    "The science of invocation is in reality the intelligent organisation of spiritual energy and of the forces of love, and these, when effective, will evoke the response of spiritual Beings Who can work openly among men and thus establish a close relation and a constant communication between humanity and the spiritual Hierarchy". [68]

[Read Detailed Article Alice Bailey and The Lucis Trust]

The Aquarian Age Community which is connected with the Lucis Trust is "inspired by the teachings as set forth in the books of Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey and the Agni Yoga Society". On the one hand the AAC site includes "a newsletter on United Nations topics", but on the other hand, the mission page on the Aquarian Age web site makes these startling statements..

    The Aquarian Age Community Cooperates and collaborates with the world wide community that is actively preparing the way for the reappearance of the World Teacher - the Christed (Anointed) One, the true Aquarian."

    "The Aquarian Age Community us dedicated in loving service to humanity, the planet and the "Great Thinker." It is inspired by the teachings of Master Koot Hoomi (Kuthumi), Master Morya and Master Djwhal Khul as there are set forth in the books of Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey and the Agni Yoga Society. There teachings seek to inspire and prepare human consciousness for the great opportunities and possibilities of the 21st century." [69]

However what is really disturbing is that the AAC is promoting the reappearance of this world leader from within the United Nations headquarters. A page on meditation on the Aquarian Age Community site [70] 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.
