The New Age Movement

The present world order can be soon modified and changed that a New World Order and a new race of men can gradually come into being.
- Alice Bailey, Lucis Trust founder

The New Age Movement:
The New Age movement is a very complex movement because it doesn't have a peculiar doctrine or religious practice of its own but embraces the doctrines and practices of different religions and belief systems. I would want us to take a detailed look at the general practices and beliefs of the new age movement in order to have a clearer understanding of what it represents.

1st of all lets look at the meaning of the three words new, age and movement
The English word New implies something or someone that comes or occurs afresh. It could also mean something other than the former or the old:e.g: a new era.
From the definitions above,we can conclude that New means a change from the old (existing state of things)

Age could be defined as the length of time during which a being or thing has existed or would exist.Since we are dealing with a change of age, It means that an age is a particular period of time, as distinguished from others (Synonyms of age are epoch or era)

The word movement (as used in the context of the new age) refers to a group of people or organizations tending toward or favoring a generalized common goal.

From these 3 definitions we can conclude that:
New= Change
Age= An epoch (Period of time)
Movement= A conspiracy of people with a common objective.

We can deduce from our conclusions above that the New Age Movement is a conspiracy of people who are united by their objective to usher in an era of change.

Put in simpler English, it is a group of people dedicated to introducing a change in the status quo of a particular period of time.Which takes us to our next question: "What is the change that these people want to usher in?"

To better understand the change these people represent, i would want us to refer to the Bible:

Gen 2:25:"And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed".
Gen 3:7:"And the "eyes" of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons"

From the verses above, we can see that prior to eating from the forbidden fruit,  Adam and Eve were not conscious of the fact that they were naked.

This was so because their eyes were covered by God's glory. All they could see was their loving Maker. They were only concerned about living for him. They strove to be more like him & were not seeking anything for themselves.

The crafty serpent deceived Eve and made her to want to seek something for herself. He filled her heart with pride.He showed her all the things she could do without bearing the true God's image and fooled her into thinking that those were the things that could make her a  god.

Believing the serpent, she decided to partake of the fruit forbidden tree and also gave some of it to her husband to eat from and as soon as they ate of it, they became conscious of their nakedness (Their focus shifted from God to the self)

As a consequence of this, their mindset changed from one that wanted to be submissive to the true God and become more like him to one that didn't want to submit to God and wanted to look to the self: They "became" beings who were fooled to think that they could be gods without submitting to the true God (Rebellion) This was the 'new' view that the serpent wanted them to see.

When they became conscious of their nakedness (their lack of glory without God who previously covered them) they sought to make "coverings" for themselves (Gen 3:7). These coverings represent the fact that they sought to cover their bare selves with glory manufactured by themselves (making a name & reputation for themselves: Pride)

2 Mindsets:

Just as there were two trees available to eat from in the Garden, there are also two mindsets today. The Mindset of the world and the Mindset of God. The mindset of God is centered on God just like Adam and Eve were prior to the fall.

The Mindset of the world is centered on the self and its inner abillities just like Adam and Eve were after the fall. That is why the Bible says in 1 John 4:4:"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."

He that is in you represents the Breath of Life (God's spirit) that dwelt in man prior to the fall. He that is the the world represents the forbidden fruit (satanic spirit) that lives in and animates humanity.

Romans 8:21:"Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God"

From the above verse, we can see that the whole of creation is in bondage to corruption (Fruit of disobedience) This is because the world as it is today fragmented from the tree of sin and self exploration that Adam and Eve partook of.

That is why all the seed of Adam and Eve bear their sinful and rebellious image (Gen 5:3,Romans 3:23). That is also the reason why the creation have beastly and not divine tendencies. (Psalm 49:20) They all look like their beastly & rebellious father the devil (John 8:44)

The plan of these new agers is to remind humanity of its common origin. (the satanic mindset of seeking the inward sinful image) Like their father the serpent, they want to 'change' humanity to focus on the self and its inner abilities rather than on the Creator. This is best illustrated in the Bible verses below:

Gen 10:32: "These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations "divided" in the earth after the flood".
Gen 11:1:"And the whole earth was of "one" language, and of "one" speech.
Gen 11:6:"And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do".
Gen 11:7"Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech".

In the 1st verse above, we see that the whole earth was divided (not conscious of their common origins). Then in the next verse they finally realized their oneness: One language means one doctrine. In other words, even though they were divided under different creeds, they all realized that they taught the same "self centered" doctrine that lucifer taught Eve.

In the last two verses we see that God was not pleased with their plan because He was very much aware of the fact that nothing would be 'restrained' from them. (i.e: they would be free from the influence of His Spirit and would be able to do whatever they wanted) As a result of this, He confused (made them forget) their common origin and divided them across the earth (into different sects,  religions and tribes).i.e They became individualized

As a result of this, these different sects and cultures became ignorant of the fact that they all had a common origin. Each one claimed that only their way of life or teachings contained the right way to live.

This is the mindset the New age Movement seeks to change. They want to remind humanity of their common origin. They want to show humanity that all paths that emanated from the forbidden tree are the same in principle: They are paths that seek to deify the self, and ignore the need of an outer savior (by outer savior, I mean a savior who does not indwell us prior to our repentance). They all emphasize that humanity can attain salvation by  itself (the work of its own hands) and by exploring  its inner nature.

An essential teaching of new agers is that religious truth is not absolute but relative. They teach that your path doesn't matter Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist or Sikh, the path might be different but the teaching is essentially the same and that is self realization. That is why an essential practice of the new agers is the unification of all spiritual truths.

"The true Mason is not creed bound. He realizes with the divine illumination of his lodge, that as a Mason his religion must be Universal. Christ, Buddha or Mohammed. The name means little, for he recognizes only the light and not the bearer. He worships at every shrine, bows before every altar, whether in temple, mosque, pagoda or cathedral, and realizes with his true understanding the oneness of all spiritual truths. No true Mason can be narrow for his lodge is the divine expression of all broadness."Manly P Hall [ 33rd degree Mason] 'Lost Keys of Freemasonry' PG 64,

Today it is not uncommon to see so called "Christians", Muslims, Judaists, Kabbalists, Zoroastrians, etc performing Yoga. It is not uncommon to see Muslims attending church, it is a common sight to see people advocating a world without boundaries of tribe and religion.

Also, people of different faiths hold meetings and dialogues based on their "common values". That is the type of society the new agers want to build: One that is united under the luciferan doctrine of divine selfhood. When this plan is realized A 'New World order' with the luciferan mindset would be formed on earth .

    “But it is perhaps desirable to state unequivocally that the teachings, however fragmentary and incomplete, contained in these volumes, belong neither to the Hindu, the Zoroastrian, the Chaldean, nor the Egyptian religion,.neither to Buddhism, Islam, Judaism nor Christianity exclusively. The Secret Doctrine is the essence of all these. Sprung from it in their origins, the various religious schemes are now made to merge back into their original element, out of which every mystery and dogma has grown, developed, and become materialized.”
    -H.P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine"

   "There is only one religion,though there are a hundred versions of it.George Bernard Shaw"

As it was in the days when the 1st Tower of Babel was constructed, the only hindrances to their plan are God and his saints.

Satan fears the Church because he knows that they are the only people who preach self denial and rejection. He fears God's chosen ones because he knows that they are the only ones who can destroy his plan and expose his lies. (Gen 3:15,11:8-9)

That is why he infiltrates the Church with his children (Mystics) who disguise as prophets and teachers and teach that the ultimate consciousness (god awareness) can be found in the self .

Satan fools these people and uses them to fool unsuspecting 'Christians' into believing that Christianity has the same origins and hence worships the same god with other faiths in order to make them submit to the New age plan and offer little or no resistance to them.

The minority, the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the Church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make its tool of them.”- Albert Einstein

These false prophets teach that instead of submitting to God, Christians should seek something for the self. They tell people to tell God what they want and that they would get it.

The tell God what you want doctrine is from the pit of hell. Jesus prayed in the Bible not my will but yours (God's) be done. We need to be submissive to our Maker and seek His will in our lives everyday. Submitting to God's will is the only way to destroy the serpent self seeking image that dwells in our hearts.

  They also teach the universal love doctrine: tolerance, fellowship and oneness with unbelievers. These doctrines are also from the pit of hell. We are never to tolerate evildoers but resist them (Eph 5:11, Prov 28:4, 1 John 4:4-6,Jude 3). We are not to have 'fellowship 'with people who reject and hate God but rather, we are to tell them the uncompromising truth of the Gospel: "Without Christ they are hopeless and dead." (2 Cor 6:14, Eph 2:1-2)

The moment Christians start to realize the devilish objectives of these people and submit to God, the more God will be able to work through them to expose these liars and establish his kingdom. The only reason why these people have so much influence today is because the church has refused to wake up from her slumber. We seem to be enjoying their lies.

2 hours of church a week is not enough. God wants your whole life, not just a portion of it. Christianity isn't supposed to be an aspect of your life. It's supposed to be your whole life. Submit to your maker. Now is the time to wake up and resist the devil.
