New Age Beliefs
We started this series with our last article, Dawn of the Satanic Age as an introduction. If you’ve ever taken the time to read some of the well known authors past and present within what is known as the “New Age Movement,” which incorporates all branches of anti-Christian philosophy, you’ll likely read a great deal of ethereal-sounding language, making it often difficult to understand. Also interesting is the idea that what they present is somehow based on truth, though no proof is ever offered. People searching for hidden knowledge found within the New Age movement simply take it for granted that truth is inherent within the teachings there.
These authors generally speak of mystical things that was initially revealed to them through some other-worldly being. It very likely came with all the attendant feelings one would assume to be associated with the world of mysticism. These feelings were the very things that confirmed to their inner mind that it was/is truth. This is often how people determine truth today, via feelings.
Madame Blavatsky, Manly P. Hall, Albert Pike, Annie Besant, and numerous others do this. They sound so other-worldly that it is easy to see why many embrace their teachings because it itches their ears with forbidden knowledge.
People like Alice Bailey, David Spangler, Barbara Marciniak and other luminaries within the New Age are much easier to understand because they’ve written their books using today’s vernacular. Often, these people come right to the point and explain with clarity what it is they are trying to achieve and how to help you get there as well. Alice Bailey is one such person. She began what was originally known as the Lucifer Trust, but shortened the name to Lucis Trust for obvious reasons.
Lucis Trust has a direct connection to the UN. David Spangler is also associated with the UN as a consultant. Bailey and Spangler, along with others in the New Age constantly spill the beans to us, but for the most part, Christians remain unaware of what they’re saying because many do not see the need or have the interest to spend time researching the tenets of the New Age (which is again, modern day Satanism). That’s fine and it is up to each individual to decide for themselves. However, for me, I like to know what the enemy is up to, what they’re thinking about, what they teach and ultimately, how they are working to bring it all to fruition. It is interesting the way sports teams will spend hours watching videos of opposing teams to learn where their weak spots are and/or what to expect from them.
It is important to understand that the New Age firmly believes their revealed knowledge to be true. Of course, it is NOT true in any way, shape or form. However, there is a grain of truth in what they teach, just like there is a grain of truth in what Satan teaches. But as a grain and not the whole, everything they teach is based totally on lies.
Back to the Beginning
Let’s go back to the beginning to see how this worked with Adam and Eve. In Genesis 3, Satan had somehow gained the use of the body of a serpent. It appears that the serpent was a willing accomplice, which is why God later issued His curse on the snake. Satan used the body of the serpent to sidle up to Eve and began asking questions that contained a grains of truth but were still lies.
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? (Genesis 3:1 KJV; emphasis added)
Notice the serpent’s question, “Yea, hath God said…?” Eve responded with a lie of her own (which was actually the first sin), about not even touching the fruit. Just as importantly, notice God is labeled as the “LORD God.” Satan simply used the term “God.” Important? Yes, quite so. The phrase or title “LORD God” signifies God’s mercy (LORD) and judgment (God). Satan simply referred to Him as “God” signifying only His “judgment” and Eve repeats the error (below) in her response to Satan.
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. (Genesis 3:2-3 KJV)
So immediately, God is seen as only “judgmental” by Satan. This suggestion is then taken up by Eve, who also sees God as only “judgmental” for not allowing them to eat of every tree. But God never said they could not “touch” the tree that was off limits. He said they could not eat of it; two entirely different things, although it is clear to touch it is the second step towards eating it, with the first step being lusting after it with the eyes.
From that point, Satan through the serpent called God a liar by disputing the fact that they would die. Satan said, “No, you won’t die! God is trying to hide the truth from you! He doesn’t want your eyes open so that you’d become like Him! See how “judgmental” God is to you?”
Satan was a liar from the beginning, but let’s back up a bit. How do you think he managed to convert 1/3 or 33% of the angels of heaven to his side after he himself had fallen and these were all constantly in God’s holy Presence? Satan probably used the same tactics with them that he did with Eve. He discounted His “mercy” and also LIED to them. His misrepresentation of God’s character and lies managed to convince 33% of the angels that he, not God, was telling the truth. They certainly know now they were conned.
But why didn’t Eve immediately turn to the LORD God and ask for His help in her confrontation with Satan? Why didn’t she turn to Adam at least? Seems Adam was just standing around watching the whole thing (though some believe Adam was elsewhere and not even present). Eve didn’t turn to God because she was already in the process of wanting to sin! Because her view of God was marred by Satan’s misrepresentation of Him, Eve may not have felt comfortable reaching out to God. She had started to distrust God.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. (Genesis 3:6 KJV)
In Genesis 3, we see quite clearly how Satan works. We need to pay attention to it.
Job Tells Us More
Moving to the book of Job, in the first chapter, we learn more of how Satan works. Notice clearly please that because Job obeyed God and he likely did so out of a very healthy, reverential and profound fear, God had placed a “hedge” of protection around Job. We don’t know what that hedge was or looked like. It could have been a group of angels directed to protect Job and his family. It could also have been simply a command from God that told Satan and his venomous helpers that Job was off-limits to them. In either case, it is clear that those who fear God and seek to obey His commands because of it come under special protection. This does not apply to Christians who deliberately turn toward and embrace sin, grieving God and possibly shipwrecking their own faith. In such a case, God will often allow Satan to attack these Christians in various forms for their own good, to help bring them back to Him (cf. 1 Chronicles 21:2 – 3).
So, it is natural to assume that if Satan began his fallen career in heaven by lying and extended that same M.O. to the first citizens of earth, we should have no trouble believing that everything he has done since has also been based on lies. When I read writings of Alice Bailey, David Spangler, Barbara Marciniak and many others within the New Age movement (Satanism), I expect to find lies. They do not see any lies at all believing the revealed forbidden knowledge is designed to help humanity.
Alice Bailey’s Fruit
Alice Bailey wrote about how to destroy Christianity.
- TAKE GOD AND PRAYER OUT OF THE EDUCATION SYSTEM
- REDUCE PARENTAL AUTHORITY OVER THE CHILDREN
- DESTROY THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN FAMILY STRUCTURE OR THE TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN FAMILY STRUCTURE
- IF SEX IS FREE, THEN MAKE ABORTION LEGAL AND MAKE IT EASY
- MAKE DIVORCE EASY AND LEGAL, FREE PEOPLE FROM THE CONCEPT OF MARRIAGE FOR LIFE
- MAKE HOMOSEXUALITY AN ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE
- DEBASE ART, MAKE IT RUN MAD
- USE MEDIA TO PROMOTE AND CHANGE MINDSETS
- CREATE AN INTERFAITH MOVEMENT
- GET GOVERNMENTS TO MAKE ALL THESE LAW AND GET THE CHURCH TO ENDORSE THESE CHANGES. 
Gee, where did she get these ideas decades ago, long before we saw any of this really begin to occur? Obviously, from Lucifer himself. Bailey died in 1949, yet these ideas sprang forth from the entity known as Satan (Lucifer to her, the “light-bearer”).
In the video I previously highlighted from Atliyan Childs, he notes that after he left Freemasonry and began publishing information about them, he received an email from a high-ranking Mason, who simply said, “We will not stop until every church is a brothel.” I have no doubt that they mean it. However, let’s also be very clear here that if that occurs, it occurs because God will allow it and He will allow it for His purposes and His purposes only.
This is what the entirety of the Bible reveals, including the fact that the dawning of the Satanic Age will occur and there is nothing to stop it. As I’ve said before, while it can be fine to be involved in political efforts to change bad things in society, we cannot put our faith in that arena. We must understand that Satan has been given the green flag by God to create the Satanic Age, which is the final global system of governance that will be the most terrible government that has ever existed. It is not an accident that this will occur, neither is it in any way, shape or form, a signal that God has somehow “failed.”
We will be back next time with more on this subject.
