The last half of the 1800’s was such a pivotal time in earth’s history. It all happened so fast, the US had endured a bloody Civil War, industrialization blazed around the globe digging up diamonds, processing steel, lugging goods around in locomotives. Charles Darwin penned Origin of the Species, Joseph Smith formed Mormonism, and Helena Petrovna Blavatsky started the Theosophical Society

Wait…WHAT, who is Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and what the hay is the Theosophical Society???

If you don’t know her name it is not a surprise. If you do, are you sure you’re not a disciple of the New Age who is promoting the coming of The World Teacher Maitreya the Christ?

The false religious system that Satan personally has set up FOR THIS TIME is called New Age Spirituality.

(I really, really, really would like to you to look up “New Age” in Wikipedia just to get an idea of the vast array of influences that have come to create the modern New Age movement.)

The New Age movement can be traced back to the writings of two major female authors: H. P. Blavatsky and Alice Ann Bailey. The pivotal works that the New Age world view are based on were written by these two women.

Other important authors and leaders of the movement include: H.G. Wells, David Spangler, Marilyn Ferguson, and Benjamin Creme (just to name a tiny minuscule select few…)

If you study it in depth you begin to realize a frightening thing: They have literally infiltrated every area of power, finance, politics, religion, and influence on this entire planet and (through the direct help of their father Satan) have succeeded in their aims.

In order to finish this letter in any decent length of time, you are going to have to either take my word for it or study it yourself. The best way to study it yourself is to get a general view through “secular” sources (such as Wikipedia and your local library) and then read Constance Cumbey’s book “The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow”. Download it here for free.


I want to put forth two disclaimers before I go on:

1) Not all people involved in New Age practices believe the same things, but the “system” that they are believing in and the movement/leaders behind it all have the same principles/tenets and are from common sources (mainly Blavatsky, Bailey, and Ferguson’s writings).

2) Individual people involved in the New Age movement should not be vilified or condemned, they are deluded and need the Salvation and wisdom of Jesus the real Son of God.

The following are the basic beliefs (historical and modern) of the New Age movement:
(I am paraphrasing using my own language in no particular order – the movement has its own language that can be hard to understand until you read Mrs. Cumbey’s book.)

– Spiritual beings called “Masters,” guide New Age disciples to secret knowledge about themselves, the universe, “god”, the animal kingdom, life, death, reincarnation, and the history and future of earth.

– There is a distinct “Hierarchy” of these Masters, along with energies, forces, god, etc. It can be confusing, but I will say this there is no personal God the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. They deny the Trinity entirely, and instead believe in a god of unknown forces.* (*this will be significant in the Abomination of Desolation – see Daniel 11:38 KJV)

– “god” exists in all nature, matter, space, time – they believe in “monism” and “pantheism”. There are spirits of nature.

– The Hierarchy is important, however, to study (if you have the interest) because these “Masters” are spiritual beings and who embody different men and women on the earth. They have a physical presence, as well as a spiritual presence. They can communicate telepathically to the disciple or in person. They are living in cities around the globe and when the body they are inhabiting dies, they inhabit another. (Does this sound like demonic possession to you? It sure does to me…)

– Disciples must take “initiations” and gain gnostic secret knowledge in order to climb the hierarchy. These “initiations” are many times called Luciferic Initiations. They, in point of fact, worship Lucifer, the god of light, the “Lord of this World.” Although many will not admit this. It is PLAIN AS DAY in their literature and in the writings of their founders.

– The “Masters” have been around since pre-flood times and helped a race called the Atlanteans move beyond “animal human” to a higher consciousness. “Occidental” races existed (and do until today) along with these advanced Atlanteans. But another step in human evolution has to happen in order for the “human family” to continue to exist. This next step is called by many names but basically is the New World Order.

– Humans are on a millions of years journey through evolution to become a perfect consciousness of power, light, love, mind, and energy: a NEW species of human that is essentially “god-like”.

– The “Masters” are helping humanity reach this goal.

– The goals concretely, are to bring in a new era (they themselves call it a New World Order over and over again) where humans are completely united, have a world government, world economic system, global food distribution, peace and military disarmament (except for them), and a common WORLD RELIGION (theirs).

– The “person” who will bring about this great convergence, transition, initiative is called the Christ, Sanat Kumara, Maitreya, etc. The New Agers say that this “god-man” is the embodiment of Buddha, Imam Mahdi, Krishna, etc., etc. to the major world religions. He will satisfy all prophecies of religions and will be a real messiah for humanity. The only hope for it’s survival. He is also called “The World Teacher”.

– They teach that the historical Jesus was real, but he was just a man who had the “Christ Consciousness”. The “Christ Consciousness” is the same as that of high level Master Maitreya above. In fact as a “Master” Master Jesus is low on the hierarchy and Master Maitreya is highest.

– This “Sanat Kumara” is the supreme being behind the “Masters” and the movement as a whole. He is at the highest level and is considered the “Lord of the World“. He will bring in the New Age in a literal sense on the earth. He will bring about the goals of the movement. He will save the world. He will cause all religions to look to him and worship him as he embodies the “Maitreya the Christ”.

– In order to bring about this great dawning of a new humanity, however, they must do something akin to Hitler (although they won’t admit it). They must move fundamentalist religions and people out of their way. They must move substandard races of people our of their way. They use arguments that sound something like this: “These groups and races are not far enough in their Karmic evolutionary journey and must be sent to other realms to finish.” OR “there will be a “Cleansing Action” in order for humanity to survive and move forward in their evolutionary and divine journey.” They particularly target Christians, Jews, and Muslims. The Eastern religions are all right up their ally because they teach things like Nirvana and reincarnation, NOT a personal God who will act on our behalf and cares about right and wrong or who might destroy the world.

Some Distinct Characteristics of the Modern New Age Movement:

The movement has intentionally changed its language since the 1980’s when Constance Cumbey published “Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow”. They have moved to catch phrases like, New Consciousness, Global Initiatives, Planetary Peace, Sustainable Development, World Community, Global Village, and more. They are distinctly ENVIRONMENTALLY obsessed. They are obsessed by human salvation of the planet (for one because we are gods) and there is no personal god to do. They believe in the god of energies and forces. Everything is “included” or a “part of” god (as I said above monism and pantheism). So therefor the plants, animals, minerals, trees, oceans, air, everything is god and is interconnected. If we let the earth it will repair itself, but in repairing itself, it will kill off humanity. Humanity will die out and the energies must start again. They are so eco-conscious as to be rabid about it. Almost ALL the modern New Age organizations are extremely involved in any environmental programs, initiatives, agencies, and global plans. I would go so far as to say there are very few international organizations that are purely concerned about the environment from a genuine pragmatism, but the majority are wholeheartedly faithful New Agers, SPIRITUALLY.

Other modern New Age practices include hollistic medicine, biofeedback, mind over health type practices. Heal yourself from the power within, or the cosmic energy or whatever. These practices may look harmless to an outsider, like herbs, acupuncture, massage, meditation, Yoga, etc. Many of  you may be involved in these practices and they may indeed “work”. But beware of the spiritual basis behind them: Eastern mysticism, esotericism, deep transcendental meditation, and downright Lucifer worship.

Automatic writing is now referred to as “journaling”. Which is exactly what I teach my ministry classes. I however teach hearing from God the Father, through the Power of the Holy Spirit, by the Person of Jesus LIVING IN YOUR heart through daily prayer. If you are not a regenerated Christian, do not journal. The voices you hear may not be divine. If you are, choose a pastoral accountability partner or an older Christian to help you discern what you are hearing.

There’s much MUCH more to the New Age spiritual movement that I want to share with you, but time does not allow in this email. The most important thing is they are going full force, they are on the literal brink of having achieved their goals. Since the 1970’s they have been openly (not secretly as before) promoting their agenda with full page news ads in major newspapers and magazines. They have practically taken over Hollywood, the media, social politics, universities, financial/business centers, and now major globalizing organizations.

They literally now have a global empire. You cannot ignore this fact when you look at what I will post later this week. There is so much more, but I have said enough.

FOR NOW…

PLEASE PRAY VIGILANTLY for the people deluded by this movement. Pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ who are on the edge of apostasy by believing New Age ideas wholeheartedly (there are MANY of them, trust me, they were my professors at Piedmont College….) Pray for the world and what it is about to undergo. Pray for the martyrs. Pray for the persecuted. Pray, pray, PRAY!

And after you’ve prayed, SHARE CHRIST. For the spirit of Prophecy is the testimony of JESUS. And to deny Jesus is the Son of God in the flesh, and the Only Way to heaven is the spirit of the Antichrist.

First things first….

First and foremost you should be paying attention to Christ. He is the Author and Finisher, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. Nothing was made without Him. Nothing gets past Him. He is our intercessor and our complete sacrifice. He is the Only One we should be lifting up.

I seek to lift Him up daily. He is the One who wrote Revelation. He is the one who talked to the disciples on the Mount of Olives. He is the ONLY ONE who can open the Scroll with the Seven Seals. No ONE ELSE IS WORTHY! It is not the Antichrist who does it, not the Church, not the world’s religions, ONLY JESUS.

The reason for this, HE is the God who became a living, breathing, bleeding CREATION and DIED and CAME BACK TO LIFE. Anybody who denies this is upholding the spirit of Antichrist. Buddha didn’t die for you, Muhammad did not die for you, Vishnu did not die for you, the planet Venus did not die for you. There is NO OTHER MESSIAH.

That being said, we MUST listen to what He said, “If the master of the house had known at what hour the thief would come he would have stayed awake.”

Jesus did not say this to threaten us, or sell an impossibility. We CAN know the TIME of the End. He said just like we can see the forsythia blooming outside (OKAY the “fig” but we here in Dahlonega have the forsythia and pears busting out…) We should keep our oil lamps filled up and KEEP WATCH. We can know, Paul said we could. Jesus said we could. We could KNOW the season without a doubt. Previous generations could not say that. We can.

We are about to see unprecedented things come upon the world as we know it. I am NOT a conspiracy theorist, I am a disciple of Christ. I do not care what the Illuminati is doing, I care about what the Word says, Satan is and has been doing. And it just so happens that he (I refuse to capitalize his “h” *grin*) is behind nearly ALL of the major world religions, world powers, empires, economic, political, and spiritual. He ALWAYS has been.

Don’t you see? He is the god of this world, the prince of the power of the air, the dragon. He is cast down to earth knowing his time is SHORT. He is seeking those he may devour. He is working in the workers of iniquity. He has “children” of his own. Those who are of the world, slaves to sin, and the realm of the wicked.

He has always operated in this capacity since the garden of Eden. You say, “But God is the Sovereign here.” Yes and no. GOD ALLOWED IT! He ALLOWED Satan to be in control here for the time being, whether we like it or not. That is what happened. You can ask Him why when you get to Heaven. If you’ll just please believe that He did it for the best possible GODLY purposes and TRUST HIM. I’m not going to go into the “problem of evil” here…..thank goodness…..

HOWEVER, Satan is here. He’s at work. He’s doing nasty terrible things nobody wants to talk about. The few who are willing to talk about it are called quacks, fundamentalists, spiritual warfare freaks, doomsayers, apocalyptic maniacs, fear/hate mongers and many other terrible names.

Having said that, Satan is PRIMING the world for Antichrist. He hasn’t had this big of a job since helping Rome conquer her Empire.

For instance, there are now 7 billion people in the world, (not between 200 & 400 million as in Jesus’ day). There are about 195 countries, probably more than 1,000,000,000 TV’s in the world, and 22 major world religions (not to mention the 1000’s of minor ones, and myriads of sub-sects, etc.)….

I believe he has been planning this grand scheme since day 1. Since the Tree. He has been planning it and it is coming to fruition. It has been put on fast forward over the last 100 or so years, but he’s been at it a LONG time.

All he has to do is this: get rid of God. And set himself up as god. No big deal right.

Well it turns out humans are pretty pathetic. They believe that they are wretched, flawed, lonely, small in the universe, unsuccessful at life, and in need of a god. They know their crops fail, their children die, that plagues kill, and that old age wrinkles the body and brittle’s the bones. They have a hard time believing that God does not exist. They look to the skies, build statues, perform rites, and offer sacrifices. They write tomes, go on quests, and seek their souls. They have a deep need for God.

So Satan has to re-write human history and literature, reinvent human technology, and reprogram human thought. He has succeeded.

He has succeeded in doing this since he was allowed to change some rules in the 1800’s. Ideas like this had been around MUCH longer, but they became global in scale, because during that time, EVERYTHING began to be global in scale. The 1800’s was the dawn of globalism. God had kept it nicely in check with flood, confusion of languages, distance, and lack of technological advance. God was about to allow something that had been painstakingly slow previously. He was about to allow the acceleration of human ability and cooperation through technological advances. He pressed the fast forward button on time and history, hurtling us to the end of our very existence, knowing that the fullness of time was about to “come in.”

Planes, trains, automobiles, computers, wireless technology, atom bombs, biotechnology, ALL OF IT. MAJOR MAJOR exponential advances that could have taken humans 1000’s more years to come up with on their own. Who assisted them?
Why the lord of this world, of course. He has been doing it for a long time if you have read the book of Enoch. If not, you can see him doing it through pagan innovation to have more money, power, possessions, longevity, etc.

See, the great Satan wants to make HUMANS gods. He wants to make humans think that they are gods. He knows he does not have the power to overthrow God. He knows he cannot convince them that he is God. But he knows that God did something rather silly, in Satan’s mind anyway it is downright hilarious. He knows that God gave humans the ability to overthrow Him. But only temporarily. In their lifetime. While they are alive, they can throw off God and say, “never the less, I will“. God made humans with the ability to CHOOSE Him. Free will. Choose me, or not. Have it your way.

Why does Satan think this will help his campaign? Because he knows if they throw off God during their lifetime, they are AUTOMATICALLY UNDER HIS MILITARY CONTROL. It’s the rules. He has temporary dominion over earth, he’s the commander here for the time being, and he can have all the people he wants. As long as they dis God.

So back to why he wants humans to think “they” are god…. Humans are rather dumb. They have never seen planets created, universes organized, angels assembled. They are under the shadow of a sin sick, illness laden, black cloud of a planet. They are “new” in the cosmic scheme of things. They are babies. He can control and manipulate them.

Throughout history he has been fooling them with idol worship, animal worship, crazy winged creature worship, land worship, king worship, ocean worship, sky worship, all kinds of insane things. They are easy prey. (Remember how pain filled our lives are, how short-lived, how frail.)

Well now he has the PERFECT religious system to catch them with. It is just a delightful mish-mash of ALL of them. And, as always with Satan, it has just enough of a kernel of truth in it to make it seem truly perfect. If you don’t know any better.


To Be Continued….
See Part II for further elaboration on this not so new religious system.

Please visit Rich Peterson’s Blog: A Time, Times and a Half a Time (link to the right) and read about this alarming movement…I will post more about it in the future from other sources, but just to give you an idea:

“…over the past year I’ve noticed a significant level of cooperation between Crème’s Share International, the United Nations’ Alliance of Civilizations, and the Aquarian Age Community. The Aquarian Age Community—the spiritual foundation of the United Nations—also recognizes Maitreya as the coming world spiritual and political leader. Both Crème and the Aquarian Community have expressed the opinion that the Alliance of Civilizations is the vehicle which will be used to materialize the new civilization.

According to the press releases, Maitreya is to be the Christ to Christians, the Imam Mahdi to Muslims, Krishna to Hindus, the Messiah to Jews, and Maitreya Buddha to Buddhists. Many people who subscribe to this universalist doctrine may find themselves in a bit of a dilemma. Does Maitreya fulfill your prophetic expectations or do your religious texts portray something altogether different? Is your Christ really Maitraya? If you reject the universalist doctrine, according to the Alliance of Civilizations you have an “exclusionary” ideology and are prone to violent radicalization and have terrorist leanings…”
