"A New World Order in a New Age"

war in heaven


The Stage

The world is moving steadily in the direction of the rulership of the antichrist. We who believe God's word to be Truth are moving in the opposite direction toward the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as "Lord of Lords" and "King of Kings". The world is crying out "peace and safety" from wars and rumors of wars. Crime and injustice, corporate slaughter, pollution of the enviroment, erosion of the earth's protective shield, government controlled immorality, humanist attacks on the family structure, and continued world hunger only begin to expound on the great problens facing mankind today.

There are many other ills eroding our world society using more subtle forms of attack. Perhaps the most destructive of these is "spiritual apostasy". God forewarned us that there would be a great spiritual void in the lives of most, even within His own church, as we approach the last days. He warns of "spiritual warfare" , incredible attempts at "deceit and lying wonders", and even an ecumenical religious "lie" that would be the philosophical basis for a one world false religious system (Please refer to Message#8:Mystery Babylon The Mother of Harlots)

mother of harlots

It should be made clear at this point that when mention is made of a particular church or political organization, I speak of the system, not to be confused with the individuals that may belong to that system. It is between God and man (each individual) as to what each has done with the matter of His Son. However, God has commanded us to speak of this great "Mystery" with the surety and power of His Word as our strength. This message will attempt to do that.

Origins of The Lie

"Even him, whose coming is after the work of Satan with all power and signs andlying wonders, and with all deceiveableness of unrighteouness in them that perish;because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall bring them strong delusion that they might believe the lie." 1 Thess. 2:9-12

The modern equivalent to the "lie" spoken of by Timothy is manifest in the satanic writings of such "spiritual" leaders as Alice Bailey, Marylyn Ferguson, and Helena Protrovna Blavatsky, and many others who have perpetuated the same lie that fell man in the garden of Eden: "Ye shall be as Gods" (Gen. 3:5). The New Age Movement has many so-called "Masters of Wisdom" who advocate "personal and social transformation" in these latter days. Marylyn Ferguson, for example, speaks of leaderless, but powerful networks that are working to bring about a transformation of worldview and mindset throughout the world's population. It is referred to by some as "the Aquarian Conspiracy".

New Agers refer to this "New Mindset", as a new human agenda, a loosenet group of New World servers that are challenging the establishment from within. They make pointed references to the religious reasoning of the ancient Chaldeans, the false religion of Babylon. Those who embrace this New Age philosophy include many school teachers, politicians, religious leaders, scientists, public officials, artists, celebrities, leaders in medicine, law, and psychology, in virtually every area of our world society.

Many are very outspoken in their support, while many are quitely working from behind the scenes, believing they can be more effective with their financial and persuasive support.

Their are legions of conspirators within corporations, hospitals, higher institutions of learning, on the boards of public schools, factories, state institutions, city councils, and even white house staffs; as well as state legislators, volunteer organizations, and those from virtually all areas of policy making within our country and the countries of the world.

A New Consciousness

There are millions of others who have never thought of themselves as part of a conspiracy who sense that their struggle is a part of a larger more potent social transformation which is becoming more and more visible. Most often political parties, ideological groups and fraternal organizations begin their entry into this new world order as part of small clusters. There are many entry points, known by politicians and others as "a thousand points of light". This new mindset, also referred to as the "new consciousness" or "new awareness", falsely advocates "human potential" that will ultimately, in their belief, bring in a New World Order of peace and tranquility, a utopian type society which has been the goal of many dreamers, architects, and philosophers since the vain attempts to reach the heavens by the Babylonian builders. However bold and romantic this movement might seem, it has evolved from a sequence of historical events that could hardly have led elsewhere. They express deep principles of nature that only now are being described and confirmed by science. In it's assessment of what is possible, it is rigorously rational.

The scientist-philosopher Pierre de Chardin was an advocate of this age old philosopy. He advocated that men and women having this world view would be instrumental as the contagion to change, a paradigm shift from the old order to a new. In my studies at Clemson University's School of Architecture, I had no idea what was meant by the term "cross-over" which seemed to refer to some vague esoteric phrase. However, as I studied a particular new age architect, Daniel Libeskind, I learned that he spoke of a social transformation, an international movement. The term crossover meant "that point where the mindset has left the traditional mode of thinking and now has shifted to a new paradigm, a new way of thinking." This is what the new agers mean by a new consciousness or a new awareness and it has it's foundation in eastern mysticism and is a philosophy of humanism.

Further, concerning the new world philosophy, new age gurus describe the movement as unlike the traditional world views, having their power in groups that form coalitions that overlap each other with support rather than derive it's power from the conventional methods of politics. These consist of environmental groups such as Les Partez in France, the Green Alliance of Great Britain, women's groups such as the National Organization of Women, peace groups, human right's groups, groups battling world hunger, thousands of centers and networks supporting a "new consciousness" like Nexus in Stockholm, publications like Alterna in Denmark, New Humanities and New Life in Great Britain; and, symposia in all the major cities throughout the world. These are just a very few of the thousands of interlocking networks, having the same worldview with secular humanism as their guiding philosophy.

The international publication World Goodwill, is a United Nations sponsored outreach designed to transform the mindset of the people of the world. In Europe, "Unity" and overlapping support among these groups is preparing the European Community to accept the rise of the antichrist with their new "spiritual and political framework". (Please refer to Message #6 Danielís Vision of the Rise and Fall of the Great World Empires) . This amounts to a joining of "religion" and politics, a frightening concept to say the least.

Many brilliant creative "thinkers" in the international community have helped to synthesize international support for an emerging vision of the planet. To them it is more than a mere scenario, one of many possible futures of responsibility. The alternative, it seems to them, is unimaginable, so, with a religious zeal, they work toward a godless Utopia apart from God.

Overlapping Values - A New Age Poll

According to one New Age Study, The New Group of World Servers created a questionaire which was sent out to several hundred of it's members. The following is some of the results of this study. Note the sharing of the same values among the various groups. Concerning the transition from the old order to the new order the three areas of Medicine, Psychology and Religion deserve particular note. Each participate was asked to chose four areas where the paradigm shift could most effectively occur:

  • the greatest fears or obstacles to this transition was noted as fear of change and conservative backlash.
  • 79% choose 'by personal example'
  • 45% choose 'by support networks'
  • others areas seen as important catalysts were the electronic media, newspapers and periodicals and seminars, news and letters and journals


Concerning a transition to the new spiritual realm the following religious influences were noted as important to their own change or shift:

  • 40% were influenced by Zen
  • 40% by Yoga
  • 31% by 'Christian' Mysticism
  • Phychosynthesis 29%
  • Jungian therapy 23%
  • Bhudhaism 29%
  • Transcendental Meditation 27%
  • Transaxle Analysis 26%
  • Dream Journeyism 31%


These New Age Spiritual vehicles are international in scope and being propagated by corporations and even churches that give an abundance of monetary aide to carry on these activities that have their roots in eastern mysticism.

Most of the literature from these organizations are tax deductable (thus supported by all taxpayers). Their literature is most often free. An example is the World Goodwill newsletter which I have been receiving since 1980 free of charge. To them this is a means of spreading their vain philosophy.

Concerning the early religious backgrounds of the respondents to the above questionaire, the following should be noted:

  • 55% came from protestant backgrounds
  • 20% said they were Judaiac
  • 18% came from Catholic background
  • 2% from other
  • 81% of the respondents were no longer active in the religion of their chilhood


God has told us that there will come a spiritual apostasy in the last days; that man will seek after doctrines of devils. He has said that many will be seduced by a system which is revealed in His Word as "The Lie". 39% of these same respondents acknowledged that psychodelic experiences have been a part of their experiences. 28% still used pschodelic on occasion and acknowledged that they were still important to them. This should remind us of the scripture in Rev. 18:23: "for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived", while speaking of the religious end-time Babylon Mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth. The Greek word for sorceries is "pharmaseudakai" from which we derive the english word pharmacy. This simply refers to the use of drugs to alter the state of consciousness of many who are a part of the end-time church and political structure.

Ninety-six percent of those polled believed in mental telepathy This is very interesting considering that the Lord Maitreya, a New Age Guru who placed a $1,000,000.00 ad in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times in the mid eighties proclaiming the soon to be revealed "Christ" would be known by His followers "from within". The emphasis was that the mass media would be used to reveal him to the world through the inner self.

Ninety-four percent polled believed in "inner healing". Eighty-eight percent believed in clairvoyance and eighty-two percent in psychokinesis; 94% believed in psychedelic healing; precognition 89%; cosmic intelligence 87%; consciousness that survives bodily death 78%; reincarnation 57%; a great number rejected the term "belief" stating that they were accepting these phenomena based on direct experience.

I personally have known someone who has spoken to "fallen angels" (demons). The scripture reveals that "..we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." (Eph, 6:12)

They were asked which ideas had influence their thinking. The following is a result of this question posed to the new group of World Servers:

  • 70% said altered states of consciousness
  • discoveries of the brains specialized hemisphere 57%
  • parapsychological research 55%
  • Jungism, paradox in physics and/or mathematics

Shifting Values

Even in light of the abundance of evidence that we are in the last days, God has warned us that there would be scoffers saying "where is the promise of His coming, for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation." (2 Peter3:3)

Anyone with the eyes to see, especially our older citizens, should be able to see how things have drastically changed concerning these things. Countless students of bible prophecy realize that the world system out of which the antichrist will arise is nearly in place. This system is only being held in check by the "one who hinders", the Holy Spirit, until it is God's time to reveal the "Wicked One" (the antichrist) to the world.

This system will usher in the beast, the antichrist and his associates in the very near future. Please do not turn your back on this. We are all imperfect in our knowledge of him; but, make no mistake about it, we are given light as we diligently search the scriptures for the answers to these things.

God's Plan for a New World

In light of scripture, we learn that man will never be able to solve his basic problems, which stem from a sinful nature, without the Plan He has laid before us. He will rid of the antichrist and his associates, and the false prophet, at His Second Coming, along with their social ideology that has deceived so many. He will also rid of this man's great political power and his humanistic agenda that has the allegiance of the majority of the world. He will also rid of the false world church, religious "Babylon the Mother of Harlots and abominations of the world". With the fall of the two beasts will be the fall of the so-called New World Order to be replaced by the Kingdom of God and that elusive existence of true PEACE!

The world is searching for this superstar, this false Messiah, a man well aware of the social strains of this present world order. He will seek to change "times and laws" according to Dan 7:25. Man's system will seek to solve the world's problems with the use of technology.

Behind the man of sin will be the workings of Satan, that ole Devil who deceives mankind with his lying wonders, who works in the affairs of man to distort, confuse and deceive.

The antichrist will have the power and authority of Satan.

Biblical Warnings

The New Age with it's New World Order is determined to bring with it's one world agenda and spiritualism the advent of the false messiah. One of the precusors to this event will be the uniting of the world's major religions under one head, the false prophet. This false prophet will give his power and authority to the antichrist (Rev. 13). At this time all true Christians will have been removed at the rapture of the church to be with God as He deals with the nations of the earth. Thus, The Holy Spirit, the Hinderer, who holds back evil in these days will no longer restrain evil in this world, and , those past evil influences upon man, whose philosophies abound today as they rule the world from their grave, will have it's just rewards.

New Agers believe that by striving together in unity man can achieve what he has been unable to do since his fall in the Garden of Eden. He aspires to the same lie that Satan used to deceive man from the very beginning.... "ye shall be as Gods".(Gen 3:5) New Agers embrace science as the answer to the world's problems, apart from God; that he can achieve that age old dream of utopia. The apostle Paul warned us: "O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so-called: which some confessing have erred concerning the faith."(1 Tim. 6:20-21)

God condemns humanism in Collosians 2:8 "Beware lest any man deceive you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the traditions of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."

"Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil. That put darkness for light and light for darkness and who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe unto them who are wise in their own eyes and prudent in their own sight." (Isa. 5:21) I can't help but think of the eternity of those such as Carl Sagan as they expound on the origins of the universe and the path of man's future. True wisdom does not come from the minds of men. "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding."( Prov. 9:10)

Humanism and New Age thinking has also infiltrated the church. The apostasy foretold by the prophets of God, Jesus, and the disciples is now a reality. "Now the spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscious seared with a hot iron". (1 Timothy 4:2)

God is calling out His people from this evil system that purports the age old lie that elevates man above his Creator. "This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that henceforth you walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, having your understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:" (Eph. 4:17-18)

World leaders grope like blind men at solving their problems, yet they spurn God's way and ultimately they are reminded that they are fruitless without Him through which all things were created.

Peter warned us that "But there were false prophets among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction, and many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of even the truth shall be evil spoken of." ( 2 Peter 2:1-2)

The Results of Accepting Man's Way

This brings to mind a story about a very fine upstanding citizen and acquaintance of mine who I love and respect. He is a man who is genuinely concerned for his neighbors and the people of his community, indeed for his country, a man who has the respect of many and who has taught Sunday school for more than five years. This man once told me that he did not believe the Word of God was inspired, nor that all of God's Word is Truth. He went on to explain that each person must come to his own truth. I am saddened by these thoughts and the memory that it brings, as this is precisely the result of what humanism brings upon those who allow this poisonous philosophy to infiltrate their minds. They are brought to the conclusion that allows for a false gospel, a gospel of human endeavor apart from the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. The false teachings of humanism leads to rationalism, human reasoning, and human efforts that reject the need for a savior. The results of this is an eternity apart from God, forever cast into hell.

Conclusion

The essence of this entire message is that we are engaged in a subtle warfare; that mankind is in a struggle against the powers of darkness; and, that the acceptance of Jesus Christ as the One who has paid the price for the sin of mankind, by His death, His resurrection, and by His Ascension unto the Godhead is the only way mankind can ever come back to the peaceful existence with God he had before his fall. We must accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and the fact that He is God.
