Introduction - Universal Expectations of a 'Saviour'
Because the concept of a coming world teacher - a savior who sets up a golden age on earth is found not only in several world religions but also in occult literature, it is easy to see how a charismatic leader who promises (and seems to deliver) utopia will be accepted, nay, even welcomed, by much of the world ...

"Belief in the eventual coming of the mashiach is a basic and fundamental part of traditional Judaism... The term "mashiach" literally means "the anointed one," and refers to the ancient practice of anointing kings with oil when they took the throne.... The mashiach is the one who will be anointed as king in the End of Days. ... In general, it is believed that the mashiach will come in a time when he is most needed (because the world is so sinful), or in a time when he is most deserved (because the world is so good). [01]

In Buddhist tradition Maitreya or the future Buddha, accepted by all schools of Buddhism, is presently a bodhisattva (an individual on the path to becoming a buddha) residing in the Tushita heaven, who will descend to earth to preach anew the dharma (law) when the teachings of Gautama Buddha have completely decayed. [02] The Tushita heaven is the residence of divine beings, reachable through meditation.

In Islamic eschatology the Imam Mahdi (the 12th Imam) is the prophesied redeemer of Islam who will return to establish peace and justice on earth. According to the Shiite version of Islam, this 12th descendant of Mohammed, went into hiding in 941, some 1300 years ago, and will reappear when the world has become full of oppression and tyranny. DETAILS

In Hinduism, Kalki ('Eternity,' 'White Horse,' or 'Destroyer of Filth') is the final incarnation of Vishnu foretold to appear at the end of Kali Yuga, the current epoch. The Bhagavata Purana, possibly composed between 750 and 1000 AD, are considered to be the purest and greatest of all ancient Hindu texts. They foretell that the sword wielding Kalki riding a white horse, is the harbinger of the end time. He will usher in Satya Yuga (the era of truth, or the golden age).

    The ascetic prince, Lord Kalki, the Lord of the Universe, will mount His swift white horse Devadatta and, sword in hand, travel over the earth exhibiting His eight mystic opulences and eight special qualities of Godhead. Displaying His unequaled effulgence and riding with great speed, He will kill by the millions those thieves who have dared dress as kings. [03]

The Occult
Occultists and many New Agers believe the present phase of human existence is one of transition, and there is a new age dawning. In recent years, more and more influential New Age thinkers have spoken about, and are working towards, a soon to come "Planetary Pentecost" (other buzz words include shift, awakening, transition, transformation, global or universal consciousness, rethinking, re-imagining and a New Earth), with factions in the church echoing the terminology.

Although they are wrong about the details and will probably not like the final results very much, 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 a new or golden age on earth. See The Maitreya and The Ascended Masters

 In the words of the Seven Ray Institute....

    The three organizations - the University of the Seven Rays, the Morya Federation, and Seven Ray Institute - work in the closest cooperation to propagate the Ageless Wisdom and bring its Light, Love and Power more pervasively into the consciousness of humanity... Humanity must come to understand the Divine Plan as the Ageless Wisdom presents it. Thus, will humanity be guided aright and the way prepared for the Externalization of the Hierarchy and the Reappearance of the Christ – the two most important imminent spiritual Events upon our planet. [04]

However, the Bible portrays this coming world leader very differently calling him the "Antichrist"

The Antichrist in the Scriptures
The Word
The Greek word Christos (Christ) means 'messiah' or 'anointed one'. The English 'antichrist' comes from the Greek antichristos (an-tee'-khris-tos). English speakers usually assume the word 'anti' means 'opposed to'. However, in Greek, the word can also mean 'instead of'. Therefore antichristos does not necessarily means someone who is against, or opposed to, Christ, but can mean 'instead of' Christ. In other words, the antichristos can be one who seeks to 'take the place of' Christ.... a clever counterfeit of God's Messiah.

The Person
For over two thousand years, Christians have been fascinated with the Bible's end time prophecies - particularly John's description of a future satanically inspired and empowered world leader that was shown to him in the form of a particularly horrendous beast. This figure, known to millions of Christians around the world as the 'antichrist' will probably arise from the ashes of the long defunct Roman Empire.

See The Seven Kings. Part III of Two Babylons.

What is interesting is that although the Bible has much to say about this person, only four verses in the entire Bible expressly use the word 'antichrist' - and those only occur in John's epistles. In three of these verses (1 John 2:22, 4:3 and 2 John 1:7) John used the term to describe people who oppose and deny the true God. Then, in the spirit of Jewish prophecy (See Footnote II), he added that that "antichrist is coming" which implies that one person - possibly the culmination of all the antichrists that preceded him, would eventually make his appearance.

    Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. (1 John 2:18 NASB)

Additionally, there is no doubt who the prophet Daniel was referring to when he spoke about an insolent mighty king skilled in intrigue who would rise to power, deceiving and destroying.

    In the latter period of their rule, When the transgressors have run their course, A king will arise, Insolent and skilled in intrigue. "His power will be mighty, but not by his own power, And he will destroy to an extraordinary degree and prosper and perform his will; He will destroy mighty men and the holy people. "And through his shrewdness He will cause deceit to succeed by his influence; And he will magnify himself in his heart, and he will destroy many while they are at ease. He will even oppose the Prince of princes, But he will be broken without human agency. (Daniel 8:23-25 NASB)

In 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 Paul called him "the man of lawlessness" and "the son of destruction" who would exalt himself to the point he would seat himself in God's own temple - making himself out to be the Almighty.

    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. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 NASB)

In the book of Revelation John told us that the first beast he saw in a vision got his power, throne, and authority from the dragon (Revelation 13:2). The apostle then went on to write.

    (3) I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; (4) they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?" (5) There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. (6) And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven. (7) 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. (8) 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. (9) If anyone has an ear, let him hear. (Revelation 13:3-9 NASB) See A Dragon and Two Beasts

Taken in conjunction, the three men present us with a well rounded if horrifying portrait of one man who will rise to power at the close of our present age. He will dominate and deceive much of the world to the extent that he will be 'worshipped' by many if not most people alive at the time. See The Second Beast of Revelation

This is considerably easier to understand if the fact that much of the religious and non-religious world ia already eagerly anticipating a "savior' as shown earlier. Exactly why Jesus warned us about being deceived.

Jesus' Forewarnings
Remember that when He was asked what the sign of His coming and of the end of the age would be Jesus' first words were to caution believers not to be misled by false Christs which obviously has to include the most dangerous one of all... the antichrist. If there wasn't any possibility that Christians could be deceived, then it is hardly likely that He would have made the following prediction. 

    As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" 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 24:3-5 NASB)

An uncountable numbers of believers show little or no Biblical discernment absorbing much of the dangerous flotsam and jetsam that floats their way. The antichrist who will neither look nor sound 'evil' will come across as very plausible. In fact, his initial message will sound so Scriptural it will resonate with many Christians - exactly what past and current false teachers do. See Section Shepherds or Wolves

But what does the Bible tell us about who the antichrist may be and when he will appear?

Who Is The Antichrist And When Will He Make His Appearance?
In the words of Probe ministries

    One of the favorite pass-times of date setters is to attempt to identify the Antichrist, a powerful figure who will appear immediately prior to Christ's return. This guessing game has a long tradition, going back to the time right after Jesus' death. The early church fathers Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Cyprian, and Augustine all believed that this person would be present immediately prior to Christ's return. During the Middle Ages, some churchmen identified the Antichrist as a Moslem, such as Saladin, but others pointed to a Jew, and some even pointed to the Pope. During the American Revolution it was popular to cast King George III in the role of Antichrist, but the Earl of Bute and British general John Burgoyne also got nominations.

    Other familiar names to be included in this long list of suspected Antichrists are Napoleon, the British Parliament, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Joseph Stalin. Since World War II, the Pope still makes the list as does Jewish leader Moshe Dayan, the assassinated Egyptian leader Anwar el-Sadat, Spain's King Juan Carlos, and Korean cult leader Sun Myung Moon. For some, Mikhail Gorbachev and Saddam Hussein are naturals for the job....” (George Bush was added to this list)

    ....The striking number of attempts to identify the Antichrist and the significance of the number 666 should at least give us a sense of caution before adding another name to the list. Perhaps we should follow the example of Irenaus in the second century. Seeing the many efforts to identify the Antichrist in his day, he cautioned against the practice and believed that the name was deliberately concealed until it would be obvious in the day of the antichrist's arrival. [05]

Hearing that the Thessalonians feared that they had missed the rapture, Paul described the sequence of events in slightly more detail in his second letter to them - explaining that certain events had to first take place.

    (3)  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,  (4) 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. (5) Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things?  (6) And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed.  (7) For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.  (8) Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; (2 Thessalonians 2:3-8 NASB)

In other words, three things have to happen....

    1. The apostasy or falling away

    2. The restrainer is taken out of the way

    3. The man of sin/ the lawless one/the antichrist is revealed.

But here is what is most telling. While we cannot be completely sure who or what the restrainer is or when he will be taken away, the apostasy is already in full bloom which means the antichrist ("man of sin" or a "lawless one") isn't too far away. The next step will be the persecution of the church.

Note: Far too many Christians are convinced that they will not face any kind of persecution but are going to be gently whisked away to heaven in the Rapture before the going gets rough. This will not happen. Why are we forgetting that both Jesus and John spoke of a lot of end time trouble for Christians.

What is of particular significance is that the Seven Seals (Revelation 6-7) exactly parallel the Olivet Discourse. Both include, in the same sequence, the events leading up to and the actual tribulation of the church, followed by the wrath and judgment of God, or the Great Tribulation such as the world has never seen. The comfort western Christians have enjoyed for the last few generations will soon come to an end, and is more than likely to find too many believers woefully unprepared.

See The Seven Seals
 If one avoids a superficial reading of Matthew 24, then compares what Jesus said in that chapter with the Seals of Revelation 6, it becomes quite clear that the Seals represent the persecution of Christians.

See The Seventh Trumpet - Part IV of The End Of The Age ...
The Seventh Trumpet is, in a sense, the most eventful of all them all, since it literally ushers the old age out, and the new one in

And PART V of The End Of The Age... 
The reasons we cannot and should not trust in the Rapture taking place before the tribulation

Persecution of the Church
Jesus said something else that we need to pay very close attention to - He indicated the signs of famines and earthquakes, wars etc. would be "the beginning" of sorrows, however, His next words, preceded by the word "then" clearly indicate that it is His followers who would be hated and killed because of His name, .

    "Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. "At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. "Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. (Matthew 24:9-11 NASB)

    Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved. (Matthew 10:21-22 NASB)

    They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God. "These things they will do because they have not known the Father or Me. (John 16:2-3 NASB)

The question that arises is who are the "they" Jesus spoke about?

While it is true that Christians have been persecuted in many parts of the world, there has never been anything remotely similar to the scale described in the above verses, especially the 'doing God a service' bit. The seeming inconsistency between Jesus saving believers from God's wrath (See Salvation and The Wrath of God) and believers being killed is explained by the fact that the tremendous persecution Christians undergo has abso lutely nothing to do with God's judgment.

The question then becomes if not God, who then is responsible for the events of the Fourth Seal? Unfortunately, all the evidence points to...

Joel's Army - The Militant Side of Dominionists
Dominion or Kingdom theology is a belief system based upon a post-millennial view which is that Christ will return to earth after the thousand year reign of God's kingdom. It is the church that progressively brings righteousness and peace to the world so that Jesus can return. Note how perfectly this fits in with New Age belief that the whole world will come together in peace and harmony under the one they consider to be the messiah.

It is entirely possible that Dominionists, who seem to be deplorably blind to the Biblical calendar of events, will accept the rider on the white horse of Revelation chapter 6:2 as one of their own who is fulfilling their skewed agenda of bringing peace to the world.

The stated purpose of the Dominionists/Manifest Sons of God/ Apostles and Prophets/ Ravening Wolves is that they are to be God's great end-time army, now being prepared to execute His judgments. And, believe it or not, those Christians that do not agree with their dangerous delusions have been identified with the antichrist. Believers who check everything by the Word of God, reject any doctrine that is not based solely on Scripture, and dismiss all extra-biblical revelations and visions that do not conform to the Word of God have become the enemy.

If you do not know much about this group, I suggest you get acquainted with them very quickly since the sheer numbers of those involved boggles the mind. See Dominionism - especially Part IV - Joel's Army.

The First Horseman of The Apocalypse Isn't The Savior
The Greek word Christos (Christ) means 'messiah' or 'anointed one'. The English 'antichrist' comes from the Greek antichristos (an-tee'-khris-tos). English speakers usually assume the word 'anti' means 'opposed to'. However, in Greek, the word can also mean 'instead of'. Therefore antichristos does not necessarily means someone who is against, or opposed to, Christ, but can mean 'instead of' Christ. In other words, the antichristos can be one who seeks to 'take the place of' Christ.... a clever counterfeit of God's Messiah.

Some believe that in the book of Revelation, Jesus Christ is twice portrayed as riding a white horse.

    I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. (Revelation 6:2 NASB)

    And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. (Revelation 19:11 NASB)

Again, this is patently untrue. The similarity begins and ends with the fact that both riders are astride light colored mounts.

The rider in Revelation 6:2 who appears when the first seal is broken is bent only on conquest. He is portrayed as riding a white horse simply because he intends to draw the wool across as many pairs of eyes as possibly. The fact that peace will not be taken from the earth until the second seal is broken and the rider on the Red Horse makes his appearance indicates that the first rider is the false messiah - the world teacher anticipated by much of the world that expects him to introduce a 'golden age' on earth. However, this illusion will soon be shattered with the advent of the rider on the Red Horse who will take all peace from the earth.

The rider in Revelation 19:11 is obviously none other than Jesus Christ who, in righteousness, dispenses justice.

However, Dominionists have made favorable references to the first white horse and its rider for years. It is entirely possible that they, blind to the true calendar of events, will accept the first rider as one of their own leaders who is bringing righteousness and peace to the world thus ushering in God's kingdom and opening the door so Jesus can return.

All who welcome him with open arms are in for a rude awakening when the peace they think they brought about turns out to be the brief period of the antichrists worldwide reign - the calm before all hell (literally) breaks loose. The one world power of the end-times will neither be human nor Christian but Satanic and the beginning of the end will not come with death and destruction but on wings of peace that will lull the global masses into a false sense of security.

See Dominonists and the White Horse

A Woefully Ill-Prepared Church
The Bible warns

    Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8 NASB)

As Warren Smith once wrote

    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.

    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.’ [06.]

In spite of God warning us over and over again about various deceptions, Christians are duped in vast numbers with relentless regularity. Few apparently take too seriously the "roaring lion" that Peter warned about. For the most part, if you glance outside, you will see the rocking chairs on the front porch moving steadily to and fro.

The church that should be preparing for the storms to come and been a bulwark against evil has, thanks to apostate leadership and a Biblically illiterate population been thoroughly infiltrated by every manner of apostasy possible with the seduction having been surprisingly easy. It was not accomplished by a direct challenge from another religion, atheism etc. which would have been stoutly repulsed, but insidiously creeping in under far more subtle disguises... Some of which are 'finding', 'drawing nearer' to, or 'experiencing' God, visualization, self-improvement techniques, claiming God's gifts, etc. etc. etc. Most of it being ME driven.

We have latched on to the coat tails of the world and come up with 'christianized' versions of areas strictly forbidden in Scripture. With contemplative prayer, meditation, labyrinths, yoga etc. we have endorsed the invitations and are along for the ride... and what a ride it's going to be.

See The Modern Church's Literal Doctrines and Practices of Demons

While dark minions dig their tentacles further and further into human flesh, our church continues to trot off to their various conferences, watch TBN read yet another leadership book, indulge in emerging dialogue, and argue about deeply theological topics, such as who Cain married (sarcasm intended) all the while waiting for a 'Rapture' that isn’t going to happen in time to save them. [See Timing Of, and Reason for, The Rapture]

A church expecting revival, rapture and the return of Christ will soon find itself face to face with the antichrist instead.




The Lessons of Hitler's Amazing Rise To Power!
Copyright Robin A. Brace, 2006.  UK Apologetics.

Five years prior to Adolf Hitler becoming German Chancellor the National Socialists were considered almost a joke, rejected by 97% of German voters...

How was it possible for Adolf Hitler to achieve power in Germany so suddenly?

In the 1928 German Election the Nazi Party only achieved 2.6% of the national vote, this means that an amazing 97% of Germans clearly did not want Hitler to be their Chancellor. The Nazis were looked upon as a fringe party and were almost a joke – yet just five years later Hitler was Chancellor of Germany! How could this have happened?

The liberal Weimar government of 1919-1931 were certainly committed to democracy, unfortunately they were also weak, often rudderless and they presided over widespread and unprecedented corruption right across German life. Being a liberal democracy, widespread corruption did not unduly worry the Weimar architects but it worried and upset many German people who longed for a return to a respect for law and order right across the land and right across German life. Of course, as we know, it was a major economic crisis which finally opened the door for Hitler. When Weimar failed, people did not want another liberal democracy which they blamed for the moral confusion and chaos of German life.

Germany had been greatly affected by the repercussions of the 1929 Wall Street Crash. In 1931, five major German banks crashed. From its former position of being a great nation Germany actually became - by far - the weakest nation in Europe and actually weaker than most African countries!! Confusion and chaos was now no longer simply of a moral nature but was of a devastating economic sort which saw thousands of unemployed men forming lines to receive a tiny handout which could never be enough to feed their families. Many committed suicide, others simply abandoned their families. Panic gripped thousands of Germans, and they cried out for a strong leader who could lead them out of this chaos!

Both communists and National Socialists prospered in this climate in which the common people powerfully rejected the whole concept of a liberal democracy.

In the 1932 election campaign Hitler put himself forward as the strong and decisive leader which the Germans had been longing for. As many have commented, all the Nazi Party really offered was order, discipline and authority since they had not drawn up any detailed policies – however, it was indeed the order, discipline and authority which the Germans were longing and craving for! Moreover the Nazis made it clear that, when elected, they would form a dictatorship – not a democracy, but this, again, was exactly what the people wanted!

So it was economic catastrophe which turned the Nazis from a party which 97% of Germans had rejected in 1928 to a major party just 4-5 years later. In 1932 the Nazis had 37% of the vote - the biggest single German party. German leader Hindenburg originally did not want Hitler to be chancellor because he believed that he would bring even more chaos. It was thousands of bankers and businessmen who petitioned for Hitler to become chancellor. They longed for stability, security and a return of confidence to German business life and saw Hitler as the strict no-nonsense disciplinarian who could provide it. The only strong radical alternative to Hitler were the communists who were obviously absolute anathema to bankers and businessmen!

Many more moderate German conservatives thought they would be able to control Hitler when he went into government through the processes of parliament, but what nobody had accounted for was National Socialism's zeal in changing laws and bringing in new laws to suit themselves and to radically change German life. There is no doubt that Hitler did stabilize all of German life and brought new economic confidence to the ravaged land. For this achievement ordinary Germans wholeheartedly threw themselves behind Hitler and the Nazis.

What is the lesson of all this?
Five years prior to Adolf Hitler becoming German Chancellor the National Socialists were considered almost a joke, rejected by 97% of German voters, but when economic disaster struck, the people – in their tens of thousands – simply wanted a strong leader amidst a sea of watery ineffectual liberals! They were prepared to accept some really dangerous and offensive policies just in order to get a strong and dynamic leader elected - We should never think that this could never happen again! It has been said that those who refuse to learn the lessons of history are condemned to repeat them.

If the West should hit a major economic crisis which should lead to thousands or even possibly millions losing their sources of income, a huge backlash will be certain indeed – at such a time and in such a climate, a powerful right wing leader will be sought. This could be extremely dangerous for the whole world and could even lead to global conflict. Also See When Nations Die

Footnote I ...The New Age and The Antichrist
Creating Conditions Ideal For The Reappearance of "the Christ"...

In the past few years, there has been an explosion of individuals and organizations (both large and small) who are actively working towards creating the conditions necessary for his return, when he will be accompanied by the "Masters of the Ancient Wisdom" (the Ascended Masters), alleged to be overseeing the spiritual and 'evolutionary' development of the human race on both an individual and global level.

The Aquarian Age Community
is a non-governmental organization (NGO) believes in a world leader, who will usher humanity into a singular spiritual destiny. It is one of many organizations that are preparing the way for the "Christed One", by promoting human consciousness. However, this organization has spread it tentacles far, wide, and very, very deep, working with various major UN groups, and, promoting the reappearance of this world leader from within the UN.

As it has been for years, the Aquarian Age Community's meditation schedule for 2015, corresponds exactly with the Full Moon phases which, as Alice Bailey taught, are especially fruitful times for spiritual work because an abundance of spiritual energy is available. Their site says the " monthly Webinar meditation meetings (held in the United Nations Meditation Room) help transform planetary consciousness by supporting and strengthening the spiritual work of the United Nations" 

Compare http://www.aquaac.org/un/medmtgs.html#dates    with   http://www.calendar-365.com/moon/moon-phases.html

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, what they commonly call, 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.

New Agers in the know believe there are two effective ways to "materialize" the Hierarchy's plan for humanity

    1) Raising global consciousness by means of occult meditation.especially at the full moon when " when spiritual energies are uniquely available and facilitate a closer rapport between humanity and the Hierarchy". [07] This changing or 'lifting' of global consciousness is echoed and reechoed by countless New Age writers and teachers,

    2) the reciting of The Great Invocation given Alice Bailey by her demonic pal Djwhal Khul (WHO). 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". See Footnote II - The Great Invocation.

Except that this "Christ" has nothing to do with Jesus Christ of the Bible.
What is really chilling is the sheer number of organizations working towards the same goal, and the fact that few of them seem to work in isolation, but are closely interconnected with many others.

Although the movement did not start with her, a woman called Alice Bailey was very instrumental in the global spread of the movement. She founded the Lucis Trust (formerly Lucifer Publishing Co.) which enjoys "Consultative Status" with the United Nations and has spawned several other organization... the Arcane School, Triangles, World Goodwill, Lucis Publishing, Lucis Productions, Lucis Trust Libraries, the New Group of World Servers. Last, but far from least, they maintain the UN meditation room.

And the purpose of these groups? At their core ALL of them exist for one purpose... (Note the capitalization in Alice Bailey's original writings (bold added) as quoted on the website of The Aquarian Age Community )

    "the helping of the Great Ones and the rendering to Them of that intelligent assistance which will make their plans for humanity materialize". [08]

In fact, most of these organizations were formed so that Djwhal Khul could find a nucleus of people through whom he could work. The gradual, but sure, infiltration of the government and the church means that there is nothing to hinder the return of pure unmitigated evil. And if you these beliefs are limited to a few kooks round the globe, think again.

The True Identity of the "Hierarchy"
One of Alice Bailey's books, Initiation: Human and Solar, gives further evidence of the true nature of this "Hierarchy". Compare what she wrote with Revelation 12:9.

    After the great descent of the spiritual Existences [the Masters] to the earth, the work they planned to do was systematized. [Lucis Press, 1922. pp.32-33.]

    And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. (Revelation 12:9)

In fact, Theosophy views Lucifer as one of the advanced beings who descended (thus "the fall") from Venus to our planet aeons ago, to 'help' man. The descent of these beings was not a fall into sin or disgrace, but rather an act of great sacrifice, as is suggested by the name Lucifer which means 'light-bearer'.

The anti-Christ will not appear to be the anti-Christ at all but, to millions around the world, will be the Christ... the Savior... the Messiah. Jesus Christ will be acknowledged, but only as an ascended master, a great teacher, or perhaps even a prophet of God. In fact, Alice Bailey once wrote that Jesus' spiritual development "made Him the Head of the spiritual Hierarchy"".

    At the particular stage of spiritual development which Christ had then attained and which had made Him the Head of the spiritual Hierarchy, the One who engineered the emergence of the Kingdom of God and established Him as the Master of all the Masters and the Teacher of angels and of men, His consciousness was absolutely at one with the divine Plan; [09]

Joleen Dianne DuBois, founder of White Mountain Education Association in Florida, writes

    The Christ expressed Himself as Jesus. But it is not Jesus who will be reappearing, but rather Christ, the head of Hierarchy, Who is coming. [10]

Claims that Jesus is the son of God will only be met with wise nodding. Of course he is... aren’t we all sons and daughters of God created in His image. Jesus is God? Of course! Everyone and everything is God.

Footnote II - Hebrew Prophecy
To our way of thinking, a prophecy is made and then fulfilled. However, Hebrew prophecy was often a pattern that repeated itself more than once. In other words, although there is one ultimate fulfillment, there often was one or more 'smaller' fulfillment along the way, each of which was a 'type' of the ultimate fulfillment.

Footnote III... The Great Invocation
(Pay Attention To The Added Underlining. Capitalization in original)

First Stanza (1935):
Let the Forces of Light bring illumination to mankind.
Let the Spirit of Peace be spread abroad.
May men of goodwill everywhere meet in a spirit of co-operation.
May forgiveness on the part of all men be the keynote at this time.
Let power attend the efforts of the Great Ones.
So let it be, and help us to do our part

Second Stanza (1940):
Let the Lord of Liberation issue forth.
Let Him bring succour to the sons of men.
Let the Rider from the Secret Place come forth,
And coming, save.
Come forth, O Mighty One.

Let the souls of men awaken to the Light,
And may they stand with massed intent.
Let the fiat of the Lord go forth:
The end of woe has come!
Come forth, O Mighty One.
The hour of service of the saving force has now arrived.
Let it be spread abroad, O Mighty One.

Let Light and Love and Power and Death
Fulfil the purpose of the Coming One.
The WILL to save is here.
The LOVE to carry forth the work is widely spread abroad.
The ACTIVE AID of all who know the truth is also here.
Come forth, O Mighty One, and blend these three.
Construct a great defending wall.
The rule of evil now must end.

Third Stanza (April 1945):
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let Light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men –
The purpose which the Masters know and serve

From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out,
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth. [13] {PLACE IN TEXT}
