1. Key events of the Tribulation Period

2. Description of Jesus 2nd Coming

3. The Millennium Kingdom

• Is it important to study the End Times? The revelation OF Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. – Rev 1:1 (NIV)

The book of Revelation is ALL about End‐Times events. But the book doesn’t start with “The revelation of End‐Time events,” it starts with “The revelation OF Jesus Christ . . .” Why? Because when Ee study the End Times we are actually studying Jesus, Himself. We are studying His leadership style, we are studying His zeal for righteousness, we are studying His heart, we are studying His passion to come back to earth. You can’t KNOW Jesus, properly, without studying what God’s Word has to say about the End‐Times.

B. An Overview of The Tribulation

  • Daniel 9:24‐27: Some of you may be wondering, “How do we KNOW there is going to be such a period of time as a 7‐yr Tribulation?” “Where in the Bible does it explicitly talk about a Tribulation time period of 7 years right before Jesus comes back?”

  • Daniel 9:24‐27 is a FOUNDATIONAL End Times passage of Scripture which describes the Tribulation. Background to the passage: It was written in 538 BC (Dan 9:1 tells us what year it was), by the prophet Daniel while Israel was in exile in Babylon. There is no city of Jerusalem at this point, because the city and temple were destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar.

  • Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy.25 “Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ [49yrs] and sixty‐two ‘sevens.’[434yrs] (7 + 62 = 69, so 1 set of 7 left over) It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. 26 After the sixty‐two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.

The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. 27 He [the Antichrist] will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. – Daniel 9:24‐27 (NIV)'

◊ 3 Stages to this Prophecy:

Stage 1: At some point in the future (from Daniel’s point of view) a king will send out a decree sending the Jews back to Jerusalem and having them rebuild the city. It will take them 49 years to rebuild it.

Stage 2: After the city is rebuilt it will stand for 434 years at the end of which an Anointed One will come. This Anointed One will have ‘nothing’ and will be ‘cut off.’ After the Anointed One is cut off another ruler will come and destroy Jerusalem again!

• Both these stages have been fulfilled, with 100% accuracy! In 458 BC, Persian king Artaxerxes 1 put out a decree which sent Ezra and a bunch of Jews back to Jerusalem where they began to rebuild the city and their Jewish way of life. In 409 BC (exactly 49 years later!) Nehemiah finished rebuilding the city. 409 BC + 434 years = 26 AD (there was no year ‘0’ which is why we don’t end up at 25 AD). What’s special about 26 AD? It was in that year (or 27 AD) that most scholars agree John the Baptist baptized Jesus and His public ministry started! He was an Anointed one who had ‘nothing’ (He was poor as opposed to rich, like other rulers) and 3 years later He was crucified (‘cut off’). After He was ‘cut off’ the Romans came in and destroyed Jerusalem and the temple again.

ALL of these things were predicted hundreds of years earlier by Daniel!

• Prophetic pause . . . Daniel predicted some sort of prophetic pause after the 62 sets of seven is finished. That’s why he says “After the sixty‐two sevens” and then makes a whole bunch of other prophecies and then in verse 27 starts with the final set of seven. We are living in that ‘Pause’ right now, Daniel didn’t tell us how long the ‘pause’ would be, we’ve been living in it ever since Jesus started His public ministry.

Stage 3: The Tribulation – One final set of seven at the end of the Age when the Antichrist will set up a covenant with many, then in the middle of the 7 he will set up an ‘abomination that causes desolation’

• You say, “But this passage seems a bit vague: how do you know the ‘he’ referred to in this passage is the Antichrist and how do you know this set of seven is the final 7 years before Jesus comes back?” Because in Matthew 24:15, 2 Thessalonians 2:3‐4 and Revelation 13 Jesus, the apostle Paul and the apostle John all allude back to this passage when explicitly describing the Antichrist and the events which are to occur just before Jesus returns.

C. Organizing the Events of the Tribulation:

Let’s use Daniel 9:27 to build a bit of a timeline where we can fit other End Times passages into and make sense of what the Scriptures have to say about the Tribulation and the End Times.

• Ever since Jesus ascended back to heaven and the Holy Spirit came on the Early Church we’ve been in the Church Age.

• Daniel 9:27 is the only passage of Scripture which explicitly tells us how the 7‐year Tribulation time period starts –He [the Antichrist] will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ – Dan 9:27a (NIV) So the Antichrist is going to confirm a covenant between Israel and many surrounding nations.

When that happens the Countdown Clock officially starts ticking and we have 7 years until Jesus returns. I just want to say two things about this:

1. The Antichrist isn’t going to be wearing a sign that says ‘Antichrist.’ We’re not going to know in advance who this guy is, and the newspaper headlines the next day aren’t going to trumpet “ANTICHRIST CONFIRMS HISTORIC COVENANT.” He’s going to be some government leader and a brilliant diplomat, but we don’t know who he is.

2. The 2nd thing I want to say about this is that this passage doesn’t explicitly say PEACE TREATY. Now many people assume it’s going to be a peace treaty but it doesn’t explicitly say PEACE TREATY. So it could be a peace treaty – I think some sort of peace treaty is implied if these nations are confirming a covenant together, but this could be something else: say a water deal, an oil deal, a sharing of religious holy sites deal or a peace treaty. We don’t know for sure.

• Principle: God’s given us just enough information in His Word so that we can know what we should be looking for, but not so much information that we could figure everything out on our own strength without having to continually rely on His Spirit through prayer and fasting.

• Do you want to know what one of Jesus’ primary End‐Times commands to us in the Gospels is? 6 times in the Gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke we are commanded to “WATCH OUT.” Over and over again Jesus commands us “WATCH OUT.” WATCH OUT. What does it mean to “Watch out?” It means, first of all, that we are commanded to KNOW THE SIGNS OF THE END TIMES – how can you watch out for something if you don’t know what it is?

And 2nd that we are then to be PRAYERFULLY VIGILANT watching for those signs to occur.

• Some of you might be thinking “But Jesus is going to come like a Thief in the Night and it’s going to be a surprise, anyway, so what’s the use of WATCHING OUT?” You don’t want Jesus to come like a Thief in the Night to you!

Look what Paul says to the Thessalonians about the End Times in 1 Thess 5:4, But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. – 1 Thess 5:4 (NIV)

When Jesus said He was coming like a Thief in the Night He was talking to un‐believers and worldly believers, and Paul here is warning the Thessalonians – don’t you let Jesus sneak up on you that way. If a thief comes to your house in the night it’s not a good thing – you are going to suffer loss. You don’t want Jesus to come to you like a Thief in the Night and that’s why Jesus says over and over again ‘Watch out!’

That’s one of the reasons we’re doing this series, because we want to be ready and Watching Out for the Day of Jesus’ Return, so that He doesn’t come to anyone at Southland like a Thief in the Night.

• So here’s what’s going to happen: The Antichrist is going to confirm some kind of covenant between Israel and many nations, but many of the believers who are not Watching Out are going to MISS IT! The count‐down clock will start, we’ll be in the final 7 years of human history as we know it, and they will be clueless.

BUT to all those who are WATCHING: they are in the Word, they are studying the Signs, prayerfully vigilant and watching the headlines, a man is going to come along – he won’t have a sign hung around his neck that says ‘Antichrist’ – and he’ll confirm a covenant between Israel and many other nations, and to those who are WATCHING the Holy Spirit will confirm in our hearts, “This is it,” and we’ll know that the Tribulation has started.

D. Two Halves to the Tribulation:

Daniel chapter 9 gives us more information about the Tribulation than just how it starts. He also clearly describes for us how the Tribulation will be divided into TWO PARTS, split right down the middle, 3 ½ years & 3 ½ years:

In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. – Dan 9:27b (NIV)

• Here’s what you need to know about the Tribulation: the Bible has a LOT to say to us about the Tribulation – the majority of the book of Revelation has to do with the Tribulation – but ALMOST EVERYTHING the Bible has to say about the Tribulation is actually about the SECOND HALF of the Tribulation.

Revelation chapters 6 – 19, which talk about all the seal judgments and trumpet judgments and bowl judgments – all of that is happening in the 2nd half of the Tribulation. The Bible says almost nothing, explicitly, about the first half of the Tribulation so we don’t know a lot of details, other than that there is probably going to be some sort of counterfeit peace, most probably associated with the covenant the Antichrist makes, during that time.

• In fact, the title ‘Tribulation’ refers to the full 7‐year time period, but if you ever come across the term ‘GREAT TRIBULATION’ that name does not refer to the 7‐year time period that title specifically refers only to the last half, or 3 ½ years of the Tribulation.

• So the first 3 ½ years pass by, there’s relative peace in the world, and then a momentous event happens: the ANTICHRIST GOES INTO THE TEMPLE AND HE DOES 2 THINGS – he stops the Jews from sacrificing in the temple and he sets up what this passage calls an ‘abomination of desolation.’ Now this verse doesn’t explain to us, exactly, what that ‘abomination of desolation’ is, but Revelation 13:11‐18 fills in a whole bunch of details for us.

Basically, what he’s going to do is he’s going to set up some kind of image in the Temple and demand that the whole world worship him as God.

• Note: Now, for any of you who knows anything about Israel today you know that this prophecy could not come true right now because the Jews don’t have a Temple, right now – there are no sacrifices happening. The Romans bulldozed it in 70AD, and the Jews haven’t been able to re‐build it since they re‐took Jerusalem in 1967 because the Muslims built their Dome of the Rock temple on the site where the Temple used to stand and is supposed to be rebuilt.

One of the things, then, that we can be watching for in the coming years and decades is that at some point in the future the Jews are going to bull‐doze the Dome of the Rock and then re‐build their temple. There already is a world‐wide movement at work among orthodox Jews of raising money and getting ready to do exactly this.

Now let me tell you, the Muslims are NOT going to like it when the Jews do this, and this issue has the potential to set off a major world fire‐storm when it finally does happen.

• Two Key events at the Mid‐point of the Tribulation:

1. Physical Event: Abomination of Desolation – Antichrist demands worship. The final half of the Tribulation will be all about worship – Satan wants worship and Jesus wants worship, and people will be forced to choose (though a few will escape without choosing sides – more on that in the Millennium message).

2. Spiritual Event: Devil thrown down to earth. ‘Spiritual’ event not in the sense of ‘less real’ or ‘unsubstantial’ but spiritual in the sense that we won’t see it with our physical eyes, it won’t be reported in our newspapers.

This is the pivotal event which leads to/causes the physical event of the Antichrist demanding worship and which is the driving force causing the last 3 ½ years of the Tribulation to be so awful.

"And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. . . . When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time [a way of saying 3 ½ years], out of the serpent's reach. . . . Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring—those who obey God's commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus." – Rev 12:7‐9, 13‐14, 17 (NIV)

• “Why is Satan trying so hard to kill the Jews?” I certainly don’t know all of his reasons, I’m sure, but I think I know one of his primary reasons – he’s trying to escape JAIL (the bottomless pit)! Look at this prophecy Jesus made about His 2nd Coming in Matthew 23:39 For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.' – Matt 23:39 (NIV) – so he’s trying to thwart this prophecy, by making sure there are no Jews left to occupy Jerusalem and welcome Jesus back!

The logic would be: if there are no Jews to welcome Jesus back, Jesus won’t break His Word, so then He wouldn’t be able to return. He knows he can’t beat Jesus head to head, but he’s hoping to thwart the prophecies and perhaps escape that way. Of course, he is going to fail – you can’t thwart God’s prophecies any more than you can defeat God.

E. 3 key things happening in the final 3 ½ years of Tribulation:

1. Satan trying to kill all Jews (and Christians)

2. God releases 21 supernatural judgments on Satan & Antichrist in partnership with the Church (Rev 6 – 19)

3. Armageddon World War – Armageddon is more than one battle, it is actually a world war that starts when the Antichrist demands worship. The climax of this war will be a final battle when Jesus returns to Jerusalem with all of us in tow and smashes the Antichrist once and for all. But there’s more to this war than just that one battle – after the Antichrist demands the worship of the world, the nations of the East (China and a number of those Eastern countries) are going to rise up in rebellion. They won’t be fighting for Jesus, but they will think that this whole worship thing is going way too far, so they will march out against the Antichrist with an army that the Bible says has 200 million men.

On their march towards the Antichrist’s army the Bible says they will commit their own atrocities and will kill millions of people. Some other nations from the North and South will also join them and the war between them and the Antichrist’s army will rage for 3 and ½ years.


Pockets of Shelter – Seek the LORD, all you humble of the land, you who do what he commands. Seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of the LORD's anger. – Zeph 2:3 (NIV)

These pockets of shelter afford protection IN ADDITION to the promise of protection God has already made to each and every believer in the Tribulation (see part 4 of this message series), but these pockets of shelter will only be enjoyed by some, not all. These pockets of shelter will provide some extra protection from the persecution to come on believers in the End Times.

John Wycliffe “When the western church was divided for about 40 years between two rival popes, one in Rome and the other in Avigon, France, each pope called the other pope antichrist ‐ and John Wycliffe is reputed to have regarded them as both being right: “two halves of Antichrist, making up the perfect Man of Sin between them.” — Ibid

Thomas Cranmer (1489‐1556) (Anglican): “Whereof it followeth Rome to be the seat of antichrist, and the Pope to be very Antichrist himself. I could prove the same by many other scriptures, old writers, and strong reasons.” (Referring to prophecies in Revelation and Daniel.) — Works by Cranmer, Vol. 1, pp. 6‐7.

John Wesley (1703‐1791) (Methodist): Speaking of the Papacy, John Wesley wrote, “He is in an emphatical sense, the Man of Sin, as he increases all manner of sin above measure. And he is, too, properly styled the Son of Perdition, as he has caused the death of numberless multitudes, both of his opposers and followers… He it is…that exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped…claiming the highest power, and highest honour…claiming the prerogatives which belong to God alone.” — Antichrist and His Ten Kingdoms, by John Wesley, pg. 110.

Martin Luther (1483‐1546) (Lutheran): Based on prophetic studies, Martin Luther finally declared, “We here are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist.” (Aug. 18, 1520). — Taken from The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, by LeRoy Froom. Vol. 2., pg. 121.

“Luther … proved, by the revelations of Daniel and St. John, by the epistles of St. Paul, St. Peter, and St. Jude, that the reign of Antichrist, predicted and described in the Bible, was the Papacy … And all the people did say, Amen! A holy terror seized their souls. It was Antichrist whom they beheld seated on the pontifical throne. This new idea, which derived greater strength from the prophetic descriptions launched forth by Luther into the midst of his contemporaries, inflicted the most terrible blow on Rome.” — Taken from J. H. Merle D'aubigne’s History of the Reformation of the Sixteen Century, book VI, chapter XII, p. 215.

John Calvin (1509‐1564) (Presbyterian): “Some persons think us too severe and censorious when we call the Roman pontiff Antichrist. But those who are of this opinion do not consider that they bring the same charge of presumption against Paul himself, after whom we speak and whose language we adopt… I shall briefly show that (Paul’s words in II Thess. 2) are not capable of any other interpretation than that which applies them to the Papacy.” — Taken from Institutes of the Christian Religion, by John Calvin.

Roger Williams (1603‐1683) (First Baptist Pastor in America): Pastor Williams spoke of the Pope as “the pretended Vicar of Christ on earth, who sits as God over the Temple of God, exalting himself not only above all that is called God, but over the souls and consciences of all his vassals, yea over the Spirit of Christ, over the Holy Spirit, yea, and God himself…speaking against the God of heaven, thinking to change times and laws; but he is the son of perdition (II Thess. 2).” — The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, by Froom, Vol. 3, pg. 52.

John Knox (1505‐1572) (Scotch Presbyterian): John Knox sought to counteract “that tyranny which the Pope himself has for so many ages exercised over the church.” As with Luther, he finally concluded that the Papacy was “the very antichrist, and son of perdition, of whom Paul speaks.” — The Zurich Letters, by John Knox, pg. 199.

Cotton Mather (1663‐1728) (Congregational Theologian): “The oracles of God foretold the rising of an Antichrist in the Christian Church: and in the Pope of Rome, all the characteristics of that Antichrist are so marvelously answered that if any who read the Scriptures do not see it, there is a marvelous blindness upon them.” — Taken from The Fall of Babylon by Cotton Mather in Froom’s book, The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, Vol. 3, pg. 113.

The Westminster Confession of Faith (1647): “There is no other head of the church but the Lord Jesus Christ. Nor can the pope of Rome in any sense be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition that exalteth himself in the church against Christ and all that is called God.” — This is Taken from Philip Schaff’s, The Creeds of Christendom, With a History and Critical Notes, III, p. 658, 659, ch. 25, sec. 6.

The Prophecy of St Malachy

Source: John Christian Ryter

In 1094 A.D. a son and heir was born into a propertied family of noble birth named O’Morgair in Armagh, in what is now Northern Ireland. The male child was baptized Maelmhaedhoc. In later years, when he was placed under the tutorship of Imbar O’Hagan in the Abby at Armagh for his formal schooling, Maelmhaedhoc’s name would be Latinized, and he would become known as Malachy.

His Irish descendants adopted Maelmhaedhoc O’Morgair’s baptismal name—Malachy— as the family’s surname. After a long course of studies, young Maelmhaedhoc decided —or rather, his father did—he wanted to become a Roman Catholic priest. He was ordained in 1119 AD at the age of 25. He continued his theological education in Lismore. Malachy, was ordained as Abbot of Bangor in 1123.

A year later he was consecrated as the Archbishop of Connor. In 1127 he became "father confessor" to Cormac MacCarthy, Prince of Desmond (who would later become the King of Ireland). In 1132 he was promoted to the primacy of Armagh. Malachy died on his second pilgrimage to Rome in 1148. He was canonized by Pope Clemente III on July 6, 1199. Interestingly, among Malachy’s prophesies was his prediction of the day and hour of his own death—and it was accurate. Malachy had the gift of healing to aid the sick. In addition, he reported possessed the powers of levitation and clairvoyance. Numerous miracles are attributed to his ministry. He was also endowed with the gift of prophecy. Most important of all of his prophesies was one concerning the succession of the Popes—from Pope Innocent II (who became pontiff in 1140) to the pope who will follow John Paul II—the last Catholic pontiff. According to his prophecy, the line of popes will end, abruptly, with the next pope. He was described in the prophesies of St. Malachy as Gloria Olivae (the glory of the olive).

During his reign, peace will descend over the Mideast. Historians believe that Malachy received his papal secession vision during his visit to Rome in 1140 for the coronation of Innocent II. Historians claim that Malachy gave the recorded vision to the new pontiff to "comfort him in his afflictions."

Innocent II placed the document in the papal archive where they remained for four centuries, read only by the curator of the library and other high-ranking church officials.

Those Christians who believe Antichrist will be the Pope will see a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy in the Malachy Prophecy. The prophecy advances the secession of Roman Catholic pontiffs from Celestine II [1143 AD] to John Paul II’s successor, who will be revealed within the next 30 days) [2005 AD]. Malachy wrote that he was inscribing the pontiffs from Celestine II " the end of the world." In a vision the Holy Spirit revealed each future pontiff by his character, geographic or physiological attributes, or his coat of arms. In all, Malachy described 111 popes. However, in the 1820 printed version of Malachy’s prophesies, Lignum Vitre (written in 1559 by a Benedictine historian, Arnold Wyon), a 112th pope appears that was not in Malachy’s original manuscript. The 112th pope was added by the Olivetan monks. The Order of St. Benedict claims this final pope will come within the Benedictine Order, and that he was placed in the secession line because St. Benedict himself prophesied that before the end of the world, his Order will triumphantly lead the Catholic Church in its battle against evil (the Battle of Armageddon). St. Benedict’s "prophecy" was more wishful thinking than it was spiritual insight from God. Although Malachy entrusted his vision to paper and gave the manuscript to Pope Innocent II for safe keeping, Father Claude Francois Menestrier, a famous 18th century Jesuit, claims the prophecies were actually written in 1590 by Cardinal Simoncelli to influence the election of the Cardinal of his choice as pontiff that year.

The argument advanced by advocates who favor the later date is based on the whimsical notion that because Malachy never mentioned writing the papal ascension prophecy, he probably didn’t. Skeptics of that era felt its more likely that Cardinal Simoncelli wrote them. However, three simple facts suggest Menestrier was wrong, and that Malachy did write them. First, Vatican records show that the document was entrusted to Innocent II in 1140. Like many other important Vatican documents, the Malachy Prophecy was one of the early documents printed on the Gutenberg Press in 1455—135 years before Cardinal Simoncelli supposed wrote them Second, while the Malachy Prophecy was unknown outside the church hierarchy, printed copies of the prophecy were in circulation before 1590 And finally, third, Malachy’s Prophecy begins with the successor to Innocent II—Celestine II. Had Simoncelli wrote them, the Prophecy would have begun with one of three other Popes (since three pontiffs reigned that year)

First, the prophecy might have begun with Felice Peretti who was elected Pope Sixtus V on April 4, 1585. He died on Aug. 17, 1590. Succeeding him was Gambattista Castagna who was elected Pope Urban VII on Sept. 15, 1590. He was the shortest reigning pontiff in the history of the papacy —12 days. He died on Sept. 27, 1590. He was succeeded by Nicolo Spondrati who took the name Gregory XIV. Spondrati was elected on Dec. 5, 1590 and died on Oct. 5, 1591.

The Prophecy would not have begun, by prophetic inference with a pope—Celestine II—who had been dead for 446 years if Simoncelli wrote the papal prophecy. He would have known that Guido Del Castello de Castellis became Pope Celestine II. Nor would there be any reason to mention the other popes and anti-popes in the line of succession between Celestine II and Sixtus V or Urban VII or Gregory XIV since there would be nothing prophetic about mentioning long dead pontiffs by prophetic inference when the writer would have possessed their names.. The future pontiffs were identified by a key event in the personal history of that pope or some other identifying attribute that was unique to that man. For example: Clement XIII who served as pontiff for 11 years between 1758 and 1769, had close ties with the Italian state of Umbria (whose State emblem was the rose). Malachy referred to him as the "Rosa Umbriae," or the "Rose of Umbria."

Pius II—the second shortest reigning pontiff in the history of the Church was pope for only 26 days in 1503—was described in Malachy’s prophecy as "De Parvo Homine" (from a little man). His family name was Piccolomini—Italian for "little man."

Cardinal Giovanni Angelico Braschi, the longest serving pope, was coroneted in 1755 and reigned until his death in 1799—44 years. He lived 82 years—serving as pontiff for over half his life. Contemporary Christian writers refer to Pius VI as the Apostolic Pilgrim on Earth. Malachy aptly described him as the pilgrim pope. In rare instances, as it was with Pius VII, it was the political circumstance under which he was coroneted.

Pius VII—Barnaba Chiaramonte—was named a cardinal by Pope Pius VI in 1786. His rise to power in the Church was overshadowed by the rise in power of Napoleon Bonaparte. The Conclave of Cardinals elected him Pope in 1800. He died in 1823. His pontificate was symbolized by the eagle—the symbol by which Napoleon was known.

Pope Leo XIII [1878-1903]—He was described in the papal prophecy as "Lumen in Caelo" (Light in the Heavens). Real name: Gioacchio Vincenzo Raffaele. His coat of arms depicted a shooting star.

Pope Pius X [1903-1914]—"Ignis Ardens" (Burning Fire). Real name: Giuseppe Melchiarre Sarto. It was during Sarto’s reign that Europe ignited in war, and like a brush fire, the flames of discontent spread from one nation to the next until finally, in 1914, war engulfed the entire continent.

Benedict XV [1914-22] "Religio Depopulata" (Religion Devastated) Real name: Giacomo Della Chiesa. Benedict XV was known as the pope of war as the flames of discontent traversed the globe. But even more important, the godless, secular New World Order that will see the fulfillment of the prophesies in Revelation 13 (one world government), Revelation 17 (the one world church) and Revelation 18 (the one world economy) was born in 1920—during his reign.

Pope Pius XI [1922-1939]— "Fides Intrepida" (Unshaken Faith) Real name: Achilee Ratti. As pontiff, Ratti witnessed the world prepare for a sequel to the "war to end all wars." He witnessed the birth of the abortion movement in Europe and the rise of atheistic secularism as it was taught to the world’s youths in the major colleges and universities of the world as globalists faced the challenge or evicting God from the minds of the citizens of the emerging New World Order.

Pope Pius XII [1939-1958]—"Pastor Angelicus" (Angelic Shepherd). Real name: Eugento Pacelli. Pacelli spent most of his early church career in the diplomatic service of the Vatican. From 1917 until 1929, he was Nuncio in Germany. In 1930 he became Vatican Secretary of State. He was a natural choice to follow Ratti into the papacy since there were no other church leaders experienced enough to deal with the Church, and with heads of State, during a global conflict. The publication of a myriad of Catholic Church documents between 1967 and 1990 confirm that, from his actions and secret papal decrees throughout the war years, Pius XII was, in the truest sense, the angelic pastor of his flock.

Pope John XXIII [1958-1963]—"Pastor et nauta" (Pastor and mariner) Real name: Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli. Roncalli spend several years as the apostolic delegate and Nuncio in Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria and France. Roncalli was named Archbishop of Areoplis (Rabbath and Moah) in Palestine around the birth of Israel in 1948. In 1953 Pope Pius XII named him as the Cardinal of Venice. He was viewed, at the time, as the most beloved of all modern popes. That was, of course, until the pontificating of Karol Wojtyla, the Polish prince of the church, John Paul II.

Most historians believe Roncalli fulfilled the Malachy Prophecy as the "mariner" through his tenure in Venice, the water city. However, prophetically, when he became the Archbishop of Palestine, he could be construed as being "an evangelical mariner" since the lands of the Gentiles and Muslims are prophetically referred to as "the sea."

Pope Paul VI [1953-1968]—"Flos Florum" (Flower of flowers). His reign as pontiff was relatively short—only five years. Real name: Giovanni Battista Montini. Like Pius XII he reached the zenith of power in the Catholic Church through the office of the Vatican Secretary of State. The Conclave of Cardinals elected him Pope in 1963. The coat of arms of the Montini family depicts three fleurs-de-lis.

Pope John Paul I [1978-1978 (34 days)]—"DeMedietate lunae" (of the half moon).

Real name: Albino Buciani. Buciani served almost three times as long as Pope Urban VII, yet has the distinction of being the second shortest reigning pope. It was because of the briefness of his tenure that Wojtyla took the papal name, John Paul II. During the brief reign of John Paul I, the rise of Muslim extremism against the Gentile world exploded and OPEC (Oil Producing Exporting Countries) was born, and the Arabs began to use oil as a weapon against the industrial nations. The symbol of the Muslim world is the crescent—the half moon.

Pope John Paul II [1978-2005]—"De Lobaore solis" (Of the eclipse of the sun) Or, the phrase could also be interpreted as "from the toil of the sun." John Paul II, the Polish Prince of the Catholic Church, has proven in death to be the most admired man in the world. Over 3 million people have traveled to Rome to pay their last respects to the fallen pontiff who mastered 8 languages but spoke 20 as he evangelized the world for Christ. Unlike most of the early Popes who came from the landed class of their time, Karol Wojtyla , like several of the modern day popes, came from the common working class and spend much time as a laborer in Poland, working under the hot, European sun.

However, many other Popes could claim the same, thus the analogy "from the toil of the sun" does not appear to fit. Thus historians scrambled to examine how many solar eclipses took place during the reign of John Paul II. In the two plus decades of John Paul II’s pontificate, there were 16 solar eclipses that were visible from southern Europe. But, there is too much ambiguity here because as you travel around the globe, 16 solar eclipses in one part of the world may be 9 solar eclipses, or 5, or 3, somewhere else. Or a total eclipse in my part of the country, or world, will likely be a partial eclipse in yours. The prophecy is much simpler than that. Karol Wojtyla was born on May 18, 1920 during a solar eclipse in Poland.

On April 8. 2005 during the funeral services for the pontiff, the world will experience an unusual hybrid eclipse of the Sun. The central path of the eclipse will run across the South Pacific where it will change from an annular eclipse to a total eclipse, and then back to an annular eclipse again before it reaches South America. It will be seen as a partial eclipse in the southern United States. It was visible from southern California, swinging northward to New Jersey. No eclipse was visible north of that diagonal line. It would appear that the eclipse of the sun fits far better than "from the toll of the sun."

I had previously read, in various articles and books, that the Malachy Prophecy specifically targeted the origin of the 110th pope as being from either Poland or Eastern Europe. Those reports are untrue. In reality as the Malachy Prophecy is carefully examined, it is accurate—to this point. There remains one pontiff in this prophecy. (If you add the Benedictine prophecy, described as Petrus Romanus, there are two). But, the Benedictine addition is not part of the original prophecy and, therefore, does not belong. The 111th Pope is described as Gloria Olivae (the glory of the olives).

There are a couple of palatably logical scenarios here.

First, olives and olive branches denote peace. With the continuous strife in the Middle East—wars and rumors of war—and with Bible prophesy telling us that when Antichrist appears on the world he will arrange a peace so deceitfully alluring that the world will adore him. That’s one.

The other? That our new pontiff might arise from a third world Muslim country—or that his roots are from the Middle East.

There is one more. The Order of the Benedictines is also known as the "Olivetans." St. Benedict prophesied that the last pope would be from that order. It is possible that God planned this in His own calculations, and that Gloria Olivae and not Petrus Romanus is the Olivetan priest. I guess in the upcoming days or weeks, we will learn the answer. An 865-year old prophecy will shortly come true—or prove to be a fraud. Up to this point, it has been deadly accurate. What are the odds, at this late date, that the balance of it proves to be wrong? While you are mulling over the pros and cons of that question, here are a few other medieval prophecies dealing with our current age that might add some additional weight to the heaviness of the Malachy Prophecy—or give the skeptic cause to scoff. One of the most striking prophesies, reminiscent of the recent tsunami and the earthquakes now following the Pacific "ring of fire" as hundreds of submerged volcanoes becomes active, was made by St. Hildegard shortly before his death in the 12th Century, was this one:

"The time is coming when princes and peoples will reject the authority of the Pope. Some countries will prefer their own Church rulers to the Pope. The German Empire will be divided. Before the comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scourged by want and famine. The Great Nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent will be devastated by earthquake, storm, and tidal wave. It will be divided and, in great part, submerged.

That nation will have many misfortunes at sea and lose it colonies. After the great comet, the Great Nation will be devastated by earthquakes, storms and great waves of water, causing much want and plagues. The ocean will also flood many other countries so that all coastal cities will live in fear, with many destroyed. All sea coast cities will be fearful, and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed, and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease.

For in one of those cities does a person live according to the Laws of God. A powerful wind will rise in the North, carrying heavy fog and the densest dust, and it will fill their throats and eyes so that they will cease in their butchery and be stricken with great fear."

John of Vitiguerro, in the 13th century prophesied that "...The pope will change his residence and the Church will not be defended for 25 months because during all that time there will be no Pope in Rome. After many tribulations, a Pope shall be elected out of those who survived the persecutions."

A 14th century bishop, John of the Cleft Rock prophesied that "...Towards the end of the world, tyrants and hostile mobs will rob the Church and the clergy of all their possessions and will afflict and martyr them. Those who heap the most abuse upon them will be held in high esteem. At that time, the Pope and his cardinals will have to flee Rome in tragic circumstances to a place where they will be unknown. The Pope will die a cruel death in his exile. The sufferings of the Church will be much greater than at any previous time in her history. But God will raise a holy Pope, and the Angels will rejoice."

Before he died in 1878, Pope Pius IX uttered these words:

"There will come a great wonder, which will fill the world with astonishment. This wonder will be preceded by the triumph of revolution. The Church will suffer exceedingly. Her servants and chieftains will be mocked, scourged, and martyred."

Prior to his prophecy, the Ecstatic of Tours uttered these prophetic words:

"Before the war breaks out, food will become scarce and expensive. There will be little work for the workers, and fathers will hear their children crying for food. There will be earthquakes and signs in the sun. Toward the end, darkness will cover the Earth. When everyone believes that peace is ensured, when everyone least expects it, the Great Happening will begin."

Hmm... if I didn’t know better, I might think that Matthew 24:5-30 was about to happen. Are you ready? If the Malachy Prophecy is true, we’d better all be. [Editors Note: The Eclipse did occur south of the equator on Friday 8th of April, 2005]

Vatican and Secret Societies in Pursuit of a New World Order Part 1

In the past, we have studied the links between Secret Societies and the implementation of the New World Order. We will study today how the Vatican is now thoroughly controlled by these Secret Societies as they move to complete the New World Order Religion, which they feel is an indispensable part of their New World Order. And New Age writings make it quite clear that this New World Order Religion, as they call it, will be an occultic religion, one that will revive the Old Mysteries Religions of Babylon and Egypt, and one that will totally destroy Christianity. And the Vatican is now leading the charge.

We will be discussing this subject from several sources: "The Broken Cross", by Peirs Compton, 1981. This author is a Catholic priest who has become totally disheartened by the current state of the Catholic Church. "The Occultic Conspiracy: Secret Societies -- Their Influence and Power in World History", by Michael Howard, 1989. Howard is a New Age writer. "Behold A Pale Horse", by "New Age" Christian author Bill Cooper, 1991.

Let us look first at "The Broken Cross".

Compton is an former editor of a Catholic newspaper, "The Universe". He traces the alleged infiltration of the Roman church by the Illuminati. The author is a traditional and still practicing Catholic, who has written this book as a protest against the Catholic Church abandoning its traditional teachings on Christian doctrine. "There is a feeling abroad that our civilization is in deadly peril. ...For civilization declines when reason is turned upside down, when the mean and based, the ugly and corrupt, are made to appear the norms of social and cultural expressions...when evil, under a variety of masks takes the place of good."

...Never before has man been left without guide or compass...divorced from reality...without religion." (p1-3)

Compton then lists some of the Catholic Churches failings in recent years: Decline in belief of absolutes (p.2-3) Its readiness to compromise with the evil in this world. (p.3) Preaching of Humanism in the name of Christian charity. (p.3) Changing from being the inflexible enemy of Communism to taking part in compromising "dialogue", thus contributing to the ruin of society. Surrendering its creed of One True God in heaven for the false creed that there are many gods in Heaven and Earth. (p.3)

Compton then asks the critical question -- "what has caused the changes in the Church"? After acknowledging that most people naturally reject the idea of a "conspiracy", the author states, we "see...the working out of an age-long and deliberate scheme to destroy the Church from within. Yet there is more proof of every kind for the existence of such a conspiracy than there is for some of the commonly accepted facts of history...Secret scheming, hidden ... from the academic...and public mind, has been the ...driving force of much of world history." (p. 4)

"The urge for world domination, whether by force of arms, culture, or religion, is as old as history...." (p.5)

After tracing some of the attempts to take control of the Papacy by non-Christian elements, Compton then begins to talk about Adam Weishaupt, the Jesuit priest who created the Masters of

the Illuminati. Compton states, "...Adam Weishaupt could view the prospect before him with a military mind. He had thrust and vision. He knew the value of surprise, which is grounded in secrecy...He would blend mankind into one whole...suppress dogma...The ideal state that Weishaupt had in mind was...founded upon the impossible dream of human perfection...On the First day of May, 1776, the secret society that was to profoundly affect much subsequent history came into existence as the Illuminati."

"The Illuminati had ...a plan ...they decided on a most ambitious line of conduct. It would form and control public opinion. It would amalgamate religions by dissolving all the differences of belief and ritual that had kept them apart; and it would take over the Papacy and place an agent of its own in the Chair of Peter." (p. 7-8)

In 1818, a member of the Illuminati, Nubius, stated that the goal of the Illuminati, is "the complete annihilation of Catholicism, and even ultimately of Christianity. Were Christianity to survive, even upon the ruins of Rome, it would, a little later on, revive and live." (p. 13). Later, we will examine the same goals as expressed in Howard's New Age book "The Occult Conspiracy". Compton continues to quote Nubius' explanation of the need for the Illuminati to infiltrate the Papacy:

"The Pope...will never enter into a secret society. It therefore becomes the duty of the secret societies to make the first advance to the Church and the Pope, with the object of conquering both." (p.13)

This is nothing more than a call for the Illuminati to infiltrate the Papacy. The goal from the beginning (1776) was to plant an avowed Illuminist into the Papacy, while the rank and file of the Catholic Church were to be completely unaware that this had occurred. Nubius then recognized that this process may take many, many years. He foresaw the need to invade and take over convents and seminaries, to win the minds of nuns, and especially the priests, who rise to become Cardinals. Cardinals elect the Pope. (p. 12-15).

How was Weishaupt financed in his drive to establish the Masters of the Illuminati? Compton explains:

"(Weishaupt) was backed financially, a group of bankers under the House of Rothschild. It was under their direction that the long-range and worldwide plans of the Illuminati were drawn up..."

Compton then confirms the spiritual nature of this Illuminati plan for a New World Order.

"The claim to be possessed of an other-world influence may not have been wholly false... having the tests that made a full-blooded Illuminati (the ceremony took place at night, in an underground vault near Frankfurt)..." (p. 8-9). Remember our discussion, earlier, of the initiations of the American Skull and Bones society, of which former President George Bush was a lifelong member? They also carried out their initiation in an underground tomb, or vault in the middle of the night.

Compton then reveals the longevity and the influence of secret societies:

"The peculiar strength of [secret societies) has always been their secrecy...Sometimes they had an affected occult significance, that ...often led them to introduce... absurd, ...unpleasant rites of initiation. There was one Illuminati circle that persuaded candidates to enter a bath of pulling them towards the bath by means of a piece of string that was tied to their genitals...It was this perverted sexual obsession that made some of Weishaupt's disciples undergo self-castration." (p. 11). Shockingly, Trevor Ravenscroft, in his book, The Spear of Destiny, reported that Eckart's last official act of the Thule Society was to magically castrate Adolf Hitler. This ritual had the effect of turning Hitler into the sadistic killer of which history is familiar. Bill Cooper, in his book, Behold A Pale Horse, states that Skull and Bones initiates its members by means of ribbon around the genitals. This commonalty again ties together the Masters of the Illuminati, the Thule Society, and Skull and Bones.

Compton records more of the occultic influence of the Masters of the Illuminati. "...Some rites and symbols derived an undeniable significance from what is generally called Black Magic, or from the invocation of a Satanic power whose potency runs like a sinister streak..."

"By a man guided and commanded...The Illuminati made use of ... a pyramid, or triangle, which has been long known to initiates as a sign of mystic or solar faith. At the top of that pyramid, or sometimes at its base, was, and in fact, still is, the image of a separate human Eye, which has been variously referred to as the open eye of Lucifer, the morning star..."

"The pyramid was one of the symbols that represented the unknown and nameless deity in pre-Christian cults. Centuries later, it was resurrected as a symbol of the destruction of the Catholic Church; and when the first phase of that destruction had been brought those who had infiltrated and since occupied some of the highest places in the Church, they reproduced it as a sign of their success." And when did this happen? In 1976, precisely 200 years after Weishaupt initiated his plan to infiltrate the Papacy , placing an Illuminist as Pope. Compton continues:

"[The All-Seeing Eye within a pyramid] overlooked the crowds who gathered for the Philadelphia Eucharist Congress in 1976. It was taken up by the Jesuits who edited the Society's year book; and it appeared on a series of Vatican stamps issued in 1978." (p. 10-11). "New Age" Christian author, Bill Cooper, confirmed this fact to me by telephone when I called him to independently confirm this shocking information.

Compton continues:

"The Eye, which can be traced back to the Babylonian moon worshippers, or astrologers, came to represent the [Pagan] Egyptian Trinity of Osiris, the sun; Isis, the moon goddess; and their child, Horus..." (p. 11-12).

The pyramid and the All-Seeing Eye are, indeed, old occultic symbols. The Satanic book, "Magic Symbols", amply demonstrates this fact on page 140-141. I was determined to corroborate the fact that the Roman Catholic Church had utilized the All-Seeing Eye and the Pyramid in their writings, so I traveled to the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, area to a Catholic

Seminary, St. Charles Seminary. In their Ryan Memorial Library, I found a book entitled, "Symbols In The Church". The authors listed their objective in writing this book, "This book is intended as a usable handbook for ecclesiastical artists and craftsmen of all sorts...who are the decoration of churches and of liturgical objects..." In other words, this book was an official book of authorized symbols which could be used to create literature or pictorial works which would be acceptable to Roman Catholic leadership. Thus, I was shocked and dismayed to discover the All-Seeing Eye within a pyramid on page 27. This All-Seeing Eye was in the section of symbols representing God the Father; however, this symbol was not the Pagan symbol of God looking down from Heaven upon the affairs of man; rather, it was the Pagan symbol of man perfecting himself properly to attain into Heaven. It was the symbol of the Masters of the Illuminati, in an official Roman Catholic book of church art!!

This confirmed that Pierre Compton was absolutely correct, the Illuminati had infiltrated the Catholic Church. But, as I studied this book of Catholic symbols, I was further shocked to see that there were many symbols that the Catholics were using which were either directly copied from those found in the Satanic symbols book, "Magic Symbols", or which had been modified only slightly. Time does not permit us to fully examine all these match-ups now, but we will return with a full study later.

So, from the beginning of the 19th Century, the Illuminati and Freemasonry began to infiltrate the Roman Catholic Church, beginning first by infiltrating the seminaries and colleges, placing priests and nuns who were secretly Illuminists. The ultimate goal was to capture the College of Cardinals and then the Papacy itself. By 1846, enough progress had been made in infiltrating the Catholic Church, thus weakening her from within, that the Illuminati felt it was time to create the Antithesis Force which would battle the Western Force of Thesis, led by the United States. The battle between these two forces would ultimately produce their desired Synthesis System, the New World Order. Compton records how this new Antithesis System was created.

In 1846, "there was a feeling of change in the air, a change that would extend beyond the boundaries of the Church and transform many facets of existence....Two years later a highly select body of secret initiates who called themselves the League of Twelve Just Men of the Illuminati, financed Karl Marx to write the Communist Manifesto..." (p.16) This historic fact is also stated by Ralph Epperson in his book, The Unseen Hand, and by Anthony Sutton in his book, Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution. Most people are shocked by this concept for three very simple reasons: First, our history books have carefully taught us that history is just a series of unrelated historical accidents, not as a result of any conspiracy. Secondly, many of us cannot comprehend that human beings could successfully carry out a global plan for domination for an extended period of time. Thirdly, most Americans still naively believe their elected representatives carry out their duties with our best interests at heart.

Compton continues his expose' of the infiltration of the Vatican by the Illuminati.

"By mid-1800's, the State of Italy had been taken over by the Illuminati" (p. 17). But, still, the religious office of the Papacy was outside their control. At this point, we should remember that the Papacy and the entire Roman Catholic Church was being fatally weakened by the inclusion of false, Pagan doctrine. It was only a matter of time before the Illuminati would be able to

topple the Papacy by successfully implanting one of their own. The Papacy was doomed to fall like a tree which had been rotting for centuries before it suddenly fell under the onslaught of the persistent wind. This goal of infiltrating the Vatican with an Illuminist is further detailed in an occultic book, The Occult Conspiracy, by Michael Howard, in Chapter 7 entitled "Secrets In the Vatican", pages 141-160. Occultic writings are often very instructive because their authors have nothing to hide and because many of the authors are writing under the influence of their "Guiding Spirits". And, occultists are very open about this conspiracy.

This supreme Illuminati goal of placing one of their own as Pope was not successful until the early 1960's, when Vatican II was convened. Compton states, "the liberals or progressives, secure in having brought the designs of the secret societies to a successful conclusion, were exultant...The entire world of religion was now permeated by its influence..." (p. 62)

"In less than a decade the church [had] been transformed from an implacable foe of Communism into an active and quite powerful advocate of coexistence with Moscow and Red China. At the same time, revolutionary changes in its centuries long teachings have moved Rome closer and that of humanistic, neo-Paganism, of the National and World Council, and World Council of Churches." (p. 62-63).

"When the effects of the Second Vatican Council became apparent, the Bishop of Regensbury was led to observe that the main ideas of the French Revolution, 'which represents an important element in Lucifer's Plan, were being adopted in many spheres of Catholicism'". "Although conducted largely behind the scenes...the struggle between the Church and the secret societies has been more bitter and prolonged than any international conflict..." (p. 75)

Now that the Vatican II had implemented Lucifer's Plan, as the Bishop of Regensbury had observed, "it now remained to round off a truly historic visit with an initiatory rite that would put the seal on this newly admitted realization..". Thus, "Pope Paul, on October 4, 1965, spoke to the United Nations, (p.67) a speech "which propagated the social gospel so dear to the heart of revolutionaries, without a single reference to the religious doctrines that [the revolutionaries] found so pernicious". (p. 68)

After the speech, Pope Paul VI went to the Meditation Room of the U.N. "A carefully edited bulletin, that supposedly dealt with the meaning and purpose of the room, was produced by the Lucis Press, which issues printed matter for the United Nations." The fact that Lucis Trust is the Publishing House which prints and disseminates United Nations material is a devastating indictment of the New Age and Satanic nature of the U.N. Lucis Trust was established in 1922 as Lucifer Trust by Alice Bailey as the publishing company to disseminate the books of Bailey and Blavatsky. In 1923, Bailey changed the name to Lucis Trust, because Lucifer Trust revealed the true nature of the New Age Movement too clearly. (Constance Cumbey, The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, p. 49). A quick trip to any New Age bookstore will reveal that many of the hard-core New Age books are published by Lucis Trust.

Now let us return to the story of the visit of Pope Paul VI to the United Nations on October 4, 1965.

"This [meditation] room was a centre of the Illuminati, given over to the Cult of the All-Seeing Eye, that...was dedicated to the service of pagan cults, and the obliteration of Christian in favour of humanistic beliefs." (p.68-69)

This occultic initiation ritual by Pope Paul VI in the Meditation Room of the United Nations "represented the early stage of a scheme, the fulfillment of which would be...the erection of the Temple of Understanding, on fifty acres of the Potomac in Washington, D.C....The underlying purpose of the Temple was plainly revealed by its...All-Seeing Eye...that represented six world faiths -- Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Confucianism, and Christianity..." The stage is thus set for the formation and announcement of the New World Order Religion. This new religion will be a combining of all world's religions, which means the death knell to the Separateness of True Christianity. Jesus' words, "I AM the Way, The Truth, and the Life; no man comes unto the Father but by Me", (John 14:6) means that no other religion, even the New World Order Religion, can provide the way to Heaven. Satan will have won a huge victory, and the stage will be set for the unfolding of the events foretold in the book of Revelation.

Now consider the next step by Pope Paul VI. "He also made use of a sinister symbol, used by Satanists in the sixth century, that had been revived at the time of Vatican Two. This was a bent, broken cross, on which was displayed a repulsive and distorted figure of Christ, which the black magicians and sorcerers of the Middle Ages had made use of to represent the Biblical term 'Mark of the Beast'. Yet not only Paul VI, but his successors, the two John-Pauls, carried that object and held it up to be revered by crowds, who had not the slightest idea that it stood for anti-Christ. (p. 72) On page 56 Compton prints a picture of the current Pope, John Paul II, holding this bent or broken cross.

How shocking that a Roman Catholic Pope could or would utilize a known Satanic object, representing Anti-Christ, and to have the faithful in the crowd bow before it and revere it. We are reminded of the prophecy in Revelation 13:12, that he (the False Prophet) shall cause the peoples of the earth to deify (worship) the Anti-Christ.

But the worst is revelation yet to come.

Pope Paul then appeared at Yankee Stadium "wearing the Ephod, the ancient garment...worn by Caiphas...who called for the crucifixion of Christ." (Ibid.)

"Within a few days of Paul's return to Rome, the Bishop of Cuernavaca, Mendes Arceo, was declaring that 'Marxism is necessary in order to realize God's kingdom at the present time'; while Pope Paul let it be known that Rome...was ready to take a new look at secret societies." (p.72)

One summer morning, 1976, young Catholic seminarians were greatly alarmed by a revelation in a journal called the "Borghese...for the paper contained a detailed list of clerics, some holding the most exalted offices, who were said to be members of secret societies. It was staggering news, for...the students were acquainted with...Canon Law 2335, [which] expressly states that a Catholic who joined any such society became excommunicate...while Canon 2336 was concerned with disciplinary measures to be enforced against any cleric" who might join a secret society. Michael Howard author of "The Occult Conspiracy: Secret Societies, The Influence And

Power In World History", speaks of this same list, but goes further to reveal that most of these officials were members of Freemasonry. (p. 152) Howard stated that some of these high Vatican officials were: Pope Paul VI's private secretary Director-General of Vatican Radio Arch-Bishop of Florence Prelate of Milan Assistant Editor of the Vatican paper Seven Italian Bishops Abbot of the Order of Saint Benedict (p. 152)

These students were shocked at this revelation because repeated Papal Bulls have been issued against secret societies.

This article was denied most vociferously by a writer in L'Aurora, M. Jacques Ploncard, who asserted that no prelate had been affiliated with a secret society since 1830. However, determined investigators, some posing as members of the Government, gained access to the Italian Register of Secret Societies and compiled a list of Cardinals, Archbishops, and Bishops who were members of secret societies. This list included 125 prelates. Compton then lists of these names on pages 78-84. Compton then states, "The French Register of Secret Societies is more closely guarded than the Italian, so that particulars of recent initiations cannot be quoted. The most sustained list of clerics belonging to French secret societies covers a few decades preceding the French Revolution (1785), and it numbered [then], even at a time when infiltration of the Church by its enemies was on a smaller scale than it soon attained, some 256 members."

The stage was now set for full Papal approval of membership in secret societies. On November 27, 1983, Pope John Paul II, the current Pope, issued the Papal Bull which legalized secret society membership for Roman Catholics.

Now we can understand how it is that Pope John Paul II can so brazenly display the occultic bent or broken cross. Now we can understand how Pope John Paul can eagerly pursue domination of the New World Order, as asserted by Malachi Martin in his book, The Keys Of This Blood. Martin is a retired Jesuit priest, who taught at the Vatican's Pontifical Biblical Institute.

Finally, after over 200 years, the Masters of the Illuminati Secret Society -- originators of the Plan for The New World Order, have achieved one of their major objectives, the infiltrating of their own Illuminists as Supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church. This breakthrough occurred, as we have already stated, in the early 1960's when Pope Paul VI came into power. This time period also fits in with the general period of spiritual degradation and apostasy which we have noted in earlier programs and in our seminar. Interestingly,"New Age" Christian author Bill Cooper, in his book, Behold A Pale Horse, states, "In 1952, an alliance was formed bringing...together for the first time in history: The Black Families (European Nobility which have historically practiced occultic spiritualism), The Illuminati, The Vatican, and the Freemason, now working together to bring about the New World Order." (p. 80)

Today, it is very evident that Pope John Paul II is an Illuminist. We can see this concretely by his utilization of the bent cross. We can see this in his pronouncements of New Age agenda and his many global travels. But, the final confirmation occurred for this ministry in August, 1990, when I attended a 4-hour seminar in Boston, given by the New England Director of the House of Theosophy. The director asserted that, at the right moment in world history, the Pope will travel to Jerusalem to chair an Ecumenical Spiritual conference. The Pope will announce at this meeting that all world's religions are now one. Thus, he said, the New World Order Religion will be established. The tremendously exciting news was that this man, who is an Illuminati insider, knows that the Plan calls for the Roman Catholic Pope to be the leader of the New World Order Religion.

This understanding means two important things:

1. The Plan to replace the Catholic Pope with an Illuminist has succeeded, after 200 years.

2. The Roman Catholic Pope is probably the False Prophet of Revelation.

Finally, add to these understandings the fact that key leaders of the New World Order Plan have publicly identified the Roman Catholic Pope as the planned leader of the New World Order Religion. This is the Biblical office of the False Prophet, the one who will serve with Anti-Christ to deceive the world, and who will wield the same occultic power as the Anti-Christ.

The time for final implementation is very close.

Hitler’s Spiritual Master-Maitreya

There are invisible spiritual forces at work behind the scene that most are unaware of. Once we understand that there is a spiritual influence of both good and bad taking place in the world we can better understand what is being formed and which side we are to be on (Eph 6:12).

H. P. Blavatsky was given “The Secret Doctrine” by the Masters of wisdom through telepathy; in the same way Alice Bailey was given the Teachings by Dwaj Khul, they were channeled by spirit entities that posed as benevolent creatures to advance mankind.

It is well known that the birth of the Nazi Party is connected to the Thule Society. The Thule’s were basically a “secret society” that was in pursuit of occult esoteric knowledge. The Thule Society was formed about 1914, and grew to over 1,500 members. Its membership was varied from all different people.

It included the wealthy, judges, lawyers, police, university professors, scientists, physicians and businessmen. The Occultic Thule Society was named after the mythical hyperborean Aryan culture that is alleged to have existed northwest of Norway sometime before the dawn of history. The hyperboreans were the root race that spawned the current root race homo- sapiens.

The Thules believed they descended from the Aryans, a race of Causcasian “supermen” that lived nearly a million years ago. These same concepts are connected to the occult view of the continent of Lemuria (Mu) and Atlantis.

The Thules were occupied in a propaganda war against the Jews. They convince the German public of a sinister Jewish conspiracy blaming them for nearly all of Germany's problems.

The similarity to the secret doctrine of the occultists cannot be overlooked. “Creation is not finished. Man is clearly approaching a phase of metamorphosis. The earlier human species has already reached the stage of dying out.... All of the force of creation will be concentrated in a new species... [which] will surpass infinitely modern man.... Do you understand now the profound meaning of our National Socialist movement?” (Adolf Hitler, quoted by Hermann Rauschning, Hitler ma'a dit [Hitler Speaks] p.147, translated in The Occult and the Third Reich, Jean and Michel Angebert, p.178.)

Hitler’s ideas about the Aryan race came from the Thule Society. Thule was supposedly a lost island inhabited by a ancient race that were “masters of wisdom” (much like the mythology of Atlantis or Lemuria and the spiritual hierarchy, the White Brotherhood today). Though unseen, they are a superior highly intelligent beings working behind the scenes (as Benjamen Crème states). Hitler believed he was in contact with them and that they gave him power and energy. Through his alleged contacts with this mythical superior race, he believed he was destined to lead the Aryans to rule the world. Hitler's vision of the world was that Germany would unite the world under his leadership which would last for 1,000 years.

Contance Cumbey, in her book “The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow” summarized Hitler’s path to being Germany’s messianic figure: “While still a very young child, Hitler was initiated into the finer mysteries of the occult. He attended a Benedictin monastery school near his German home. “The occult interests Hitler gained in this school, stayed with him all of his adult life and helped to shape his future spiritual philosophy.”

Cumbey: “While Hitler was in Vienna pursuing a career as an archi­tect and artist, he spent his spare time in occult bookstores and libraries, acquainting himself with the mysteries of metaphysical lore and gaining the acquaintance of adepts in both “white” and “black” magic. Transcendent states of consciousness and mind expansion fascinated him and he devoted every spare cent and minute to the pursuit of higher consciousness. Yoga, astrology, Eastern and Western “paths” to this goal proved too slow for his ambitions and like many impetuous New Agers of today, he decided to accelerate the process by supplementing meditation with drugs [Mescaline] ( p.101”the Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow”)

Hitler, Himmler and Goebbels were Catholic in their background before they indulged themselves into a new spiritual worldview. Occult books were some of Hitler's favorite reading. It was in the early 1920’s Dietrich Eckart introduced Hitler to “The Secret Doctrine,” by Blavatsky. He was taught its secrets by Professor-General Karl Haushofer (Suster), who was a member of the Berlin Lodge of the Vril Society. One of the primary qualifications for one to be admitted to the Vril Society was to have a minimum ability in Blavatsky's “Secret Doctrine.” Karl Haushofer was alleged to be a master of the secret doctrines espoused by Blavatsky, and it was he who initiated prisoner Adolf Hitler at Landsberg Prison.

In 1918, Haushofer went to live in Munich, which became a center of attraction for all manner of occultist and racist groups formed into secret societies. Haushofer eventually became one of the earliest members of the fledgling German Workers Party (DAP), which is the group that changed its name to the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP or “Nazi”) when Hitler became its leader.

In 1918 (age 29) Hitler claimed to hear voices announcing that he was “selected by God to be Germany's messiah” (The Twisted Cross Joseph J. Carr, p.36); he was later contacted by an “ascended master” whom he identified as Lucifer. Hitler took what Blavatsky and others taught and made it his own.

Cumbey notes: “Hitler rightly believed he had established communication with Lucifer, from whom he openly coveted possession” (Secrets of the Rainbow p.101). It should not surprising to find that he was led to The Secret Doctrine that glorifies Lucifer

The “Secret Doctrine” held that they originated in Atlantis and that one of the seven Atlantean races was that of the Aryans.” the Aryans were the master-race or supermen of the Atlantean races.” The myth of Aryan superiority was the basis for Hitler’s Nazism and ethnic cleansing of the Jews.

“…from theosophists Hitler derived his genesis theories and the notion of a mankind was guided by superior beings, Ubermenchen (supermen), who live in remote areas of the world-such as the Gobi Desert (Western China) and the Himalayan nation of Tibet. There was a substantial Tibetan and Chinese community in Berlin because of the occultic interests of German society, and Hitler augmented them with new émigrés after he came to power. By 1941, there were more than one thousand Tibetans living in Berlin” (The New World Religion by Gary Kah p.26).

Hitler seemed to have favored Blavatsky's Secret Doctrine above other books he had. We do know that U.S. Army historians catalogued Hitler's personal library and found numerous Occultic volumes heavily annotated in Hitler's fancy handwriting. Among the books was one that Hitler often kept by his bedside, the occult standard “The Secret Doctrine” by Madame Helen P. Blavatsky (Kubizek). Hitler kept a copy of Blavatsky's 'The Secret Doctrine' by his bedside, ever since being introduced to its teachings by Dietrich Eckart and Karl Haushofer (Adolf Hitler, The Occult Messiah, Gerald Suster, 1981).

Blavatsky not only claimed these masters were directing the work of the Theosophical Society but were also guiding the evolution of the human race throughout history. Thus Hitler found his place in the grand scheme of these masters.

One of the ideas in this plan is to have men believe in evolution, spiritual evolution. Hitler wrote, “Anyone who interprets National Socialism merely as a political movement knows almost nothing about it. It is more than religion; it is the determination to create a new man.”

“All of the force of creation will be concentrated in a new species... [which] will surpass infinitely modern man.... Do you understand now the profound meaning of our National Socialist movement?" (Adolf Hitler, quoted by Hermann Rauschning, Hitler ma'a dit [Hitler Speaks] p.147, translated in The Occult and the Third Reich, Jean & Michel Angebert, p.178.)

It had been said that Hitler had a glimpse of that new man of which he described as intrepid and cruel.

Hitler did reference the Bible for much of his justification, covering up his seditious acts by his Catholicism. Never letting the public know about the Secret doctrine that he and his elite were actually following. It is an undeniable fact that numerous men that were into ancient mysteries and the occult played parts in Hitler’s transformation into leadership of Germany. It is a fact that Hitler and his occult associates found their inspiration from the same esoteric sources New Agers do today. That should make anyone pause and think- it did for me before I became a Christian.

It becomes apparent that was an influence to a few is now an influence to many. As Benjamin Crème the spokesman for the new age Christ states-”Through the doors of initiation the disciples will pass the halls of wisdom. And take their places as conscious servers of the plan. Thus will it be the great ones lead the new humanity into their destinies as sons of God” (the Millennium begins, Crème Jan/Feb, 2000)

Today we have a déjà vu going on, except it is not from one country but a worldwide spiritual movement that will be hundreds of times worse than what we saw with Hitler. But it will be disguised as being the best for mankind and our hope for a peaceful harmonious solution.


The Thule Society's Dietrich Eckart thought Hitler was Maitreya. The Thule Society (formed in 1914) was told in a séance that “Lord Maitreya” would soon make his appearance as a German messiah to “lead the Aryan race to final victory over the Jews.” Thule leader Dietrich Eckart was charged with the responsibility of 'nurturing' him (from The Twisted Cross, Joseph Carr, p.110).

Eckhart was to be the one to prepare the vessel of Lord Maitreya. When Hitler joined the Thule Society, member Dietrich Eckart prophesied that the day had come. Upon seeing Hitler for the first time he stated, Here is the one for whom I was but a prophet and forerunner. He began introducing him in Munich occult circles as “the long-awaited savior.” Eckart understood his role to be that of a forerunner, liken to John the Baptist (history has repeated itself with Benjamin Crème as the forerunner of Maitreya.)

Eckart had told Hitler that he was to prepare the vessel who would be inspired to conquer the world and lead the Aryan race to glory. Hitler saw himself as that man. But to get to his goal he would have to eliminate some key obstacles to this new millennium that He thought would be started. The Jews were to be eliminated, then the Christians. Hitler rebelled against God that he even changed the LORD'S PRAYER to read, Our Father, Adolph, who art on earth, Hallowed be thy name, the Third Reich come...”

On his death bed in 1923, he stated, “Follow Hitler! He will dance but it is I who have called the tune! I have initiated him into the Secret Doctrine, open his centers in vision and given him the means to communicate with the Powers. Do not mourn for me I shall have influenced history more than any other. German.” Hitler dedicated Mein Kampf in his memory among others honored.

Hermann Göring was an early member of the Nazi party who founded the Gestapo; He too saw Hitler as a God send: “God gave the savior to the German people. We have faith, deep and unshakeable faith, that he [Hitler] was sent to us by God to save Germany”-Hermann Göring (“Hitler's Elite, Shocking Profiles of the Reich's Most Notorious Henchmen," Berkley Books, 1990).

Gerald Suster writes: You may ask, “did any of Hitler’s associates think he was demon possessed or is this all hype?” The answer is yes, they did think he was demon possessed!

Rauschning, one of Hitlers associates before he defected to the West, said “One cannot help but think of him as a medium...beyond any doubt Hitler was possessed by forces outside himself...” (Gerald Suster, Hitler: The Occult Messiah).

Huston Stuart Chamberlin was an English occult author who wrote, Key’s to Human History The rise and fall of races. He believed in a personal mystical connection to the pan-German movement. He spoke of Hitler as an awakener of souls, the vehicle of messianic powers. When we understand the search for superhuman psychic abilities which would form the Aryan race would be led by an enlightened master in that would initiate personal transformation, we can see how he believed he was to bring in 1,000 years of peace to Germany; just as Jesus Christ will rule for 1,000 years, Hitler’s counterfeit plan was a 1,000-year Third Reich. Hitler had his 1,000 year plan, Islam wants the same.

Much of the church in Germany enjoined with Hitler’s new order as he promised “liberty for all religious denominations.” The German pastors joined his “German Christians” Faith Movement, believing in his unity and solutions for their country and world. An oath of allegiance to Hitler was to be signed by all pastors, and the exclusion of Jewish Christians by all churches- “One People, One Reich, One Faith.” Thus a cult leader extraordinaire was made to lead with the people’s approval. The majority were misled by the man with the plan.

His wartime speeches invoked being on God's side and his blessing:

1940: “We pray our Lord that He would continue to bless us in our battle for freedom . ..”

1941: “We believe we shall earn the blessing of the Supreme Leader... the Lord God has given His approval to our battle..”

1943: “We will continue to give our whole strength to our nation this year. Only then can we . . . pray to our Lord God, that He will help us as He always has . . . .”

As Hitler had a plan, so do the Ascended Masters who are called the Custodians of the Plan and supporters of the energies (demonic supernatural powers that counterfeit God’s) entering this planet will bring about the fulfillment of their Plan. Alice Bailey, in an address at the Arcane School Conference in Geneva, Switzerland stated that the “Shamballa force”-the force from the invisible dimensions led by the Lord Maitreya-will be “destructive.” She said it will also eject the unbelievers from the earth:

“The decision to release the Shamballa force during this century into direct contact with the human kingdom is one of the final and most compelling acts of preparation for the New Age. The Shamballa force is destructive and ejective ... inspiring new understanding of The Plan....It is this force ... which will bring about that tremendous crisis, the initiation of the race into the mysteries of the ages.(Alice Bailey the Externalizing the Mysteries pt.1 p.171). Guess who the unbelievers are?

Constance Cumbey wrote about Alice Bailey's books, and the spirit communication through her by the “Tibetan Master DK,” who openly promoted the concept of Aryanism - a major doctrine of Hitler's Third Reich.

It was the theory of evolution that played an influence in Hitler’s Aryan superiority, as the master race was to eliminate the inferior races to establish his New World Order. Only the strong and chosen elite would survive in Hitler’s democratic spiritual government, by the time he was finished few would be left.

It becomes apparent that the New Age movement shares a number of ideas with Nazism, as they both have connections to those whom the plan originated from. New Agers do not accept Jesus’ unique claims that are recorded in the New Testament and find fault that the Jews did not either. Consider this statement from Alice Bailey on the failure of Judaism and the Jews' karmic debt from astrological influences: “Christ came to bring an end to the Jewish dispensation which should have climaxed and passed away as a religion... In the rejection of Christ as the Messiah, the Jewish race has remained symbolically and practically in the [astrological] sign of Aries, the Scapegoat [actually Aries is a ram, as noted elsewhere in this book, but the purpose for this “mistake” is self-evident]. [If they don't accept him in the person of Maitreya] they will repeat their ancient sin of non-response to the evolutionary process. They rejected that which was new and spiritual in the desert [making the golden calf at Sinai]; they did it again in Palestine 2000 years ago; will they do it again, as opportunity is offered to them?” (Alice Bailey, The Reappearance of the Christ, p.81).

Many New Agers hold to similar concepts of the Occultists/ Theosophists that inspired Hitler. Marilyn Furgueson along with a panel of New Ager’s on the Oprah Winfrey Show (1997) stated that the Jews brought on their own holocaust; it was their karmic debt.

Warren Smith notes: In the last book in Walsch’s Conversations with God series, Home with God, Walsch’s “God” continues to glorify death. He also teaches that no one can die against their own will. In other words those who were killed by Hitler actually consented to the process! “You are the cause of your own death. This is always true, no matter where, or how, you die” -Neale Donald Walsch, Home with God: IN A LIFE THAT NEVER ENDS: A wondrous message of love in a final Conversation with God (New York: Atria Books, 2006), p.8.

It takes a belief system of equal value to rationalize the bad, even the worst activity of evil and blame it on peoples own initiative.


The Ripening – Planet Earth Welcomes Maitreya?

The work of the "Christ" for the new age of spirituality and the coming holocaust

We have come to a point in history where things are converging to a massive unity for survival. Saving the environment, the planet (Gaia) has become accepted with the agenda of global warming. Religious unity is on everyone’s mind, for they know without this there can be no real and lasting peace.

The Roman Catholic Church wants to unite the world (and the churches) under Christendom- under the Pope, who claims to be the representation of Christ on earth since he left. There is no question to their unparalleled cooperation with other religions in the last 25 years to forge their goals.

Islam wants to unite the world under a Islamic caliphate wherein Sharia law will rule through its Islamic states. Many Muslims are awaiting and anticipating the 12th Imam Mahdi, the Muslim Messiah will eliminate evil and corruption. He will fight against the enemies of the Muslims (destroy Israel) who would be victorious… Islam will be victorious over all the religions. (Reefernce: Sideeque M.A. Veliankode, Doomsday Portents and Prophecies (1999) p. 277; Al-Sadr and Mutahhari, prologue, pp. 4,5).

The spiritual movement of the New Age is waiting for the Christ, a world teacher of the Aquarian age. There is excitement in the air. Unbenowest to all, the spirit of the age is moving with such rapid speed to accomplish its goals put in its followers for hundreds of years. Eventually all will converge- into a synthesis not imagined since the Tower of Babel.

The Christian believers know the real sequence of events to take place and wait patiently for the Lord.

Before I delve into the main point of this article let me give you some background on matters that relate to it. The teachings of Alice Bailey, Benjamin Creme and David Spangler along with numerous other influential New Age writers state that we are to undergo a mass-planetary initiation that will usher us into a New Age. An age that many a poet and philosopher have written about; a golden age of peace, harmony and brotherhood.

Spangler called it the “Luciferic initiation” because of its association with the experience of light. Call it a planetary Pentecost like Barbara Marx Hubbard or another name given by H.P. Blavatsky, it does not matter, for the result is the same. Once one experiences this new light they are changed with a new set of views and values that encompass their whole life. Be it political, spiritual, or education.

“If men look for the Christ Who left His disciples centuries ago, they will fail to recognize the Christ Who is in process of returning” (Alice Bailey & Djwhal Khul Alice Bailey & Djwhal Khul, The Reappearance of the Christ, Chapter III – World Expectancy,

Benjamen Creme who is the voice of proclamation for the new Christ says, The Master Jesus is going to reform the Christian churches” (Benjamen Creme, Reappearance of the Christ, p. 85).

This reform means “change.” When you look at the mysticism now taking place inside the church along with practices of other religions being added, one cannot also think about this prophecy by Alice Bailey:

“This Church will be nurtured into activity by the Christ and His disciples when the outpouring of the Christ principle, the TRUE second Coming has been accomplished… the Christian church in its many branches can serve as a nucleus through which world illumination may be accomplished… the church as a teaching factor should take the great basic doctrines and (shattering the old forms in which they are expressed and held) show their true and inner spiritual significance. … Teachers must be trained; Bible knowledge must be spread; the sacraments must be mystically interpreted, and the power of the church to heal must be demonstrated” (Alice Bailey, The Externalization of the Hierarchy, 1957, Lucis Publishing).

Their agenda is not hidden and we need to understand how they practice their spirituality to identify it, because it is coming into the church.

Those involved in the New Age Movement promote a New Age Christ, not the Jesus “Christ” of the Bible. They believe the title Christ does not refer to an individual but is the name of a function in the Hierarchy of Masters of Wisdom.

On Shares international website they admit – “The existence of great spiritual teachers, known as the Masters of Wisdom, became public knowledge in 1875 through the writings of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society (“ Highlights of Maitreya’s public emergence”)

Helena Blavatsky did not agree with the Bibles position at all and spoke of the coming world ruler of the New Age as the “serpent” from the garden.

We are told by former Masons that the highest degree in freemasonry, the 33rd degree which brings the illumination that Lucifer is actually God, the one who brings light, and Adonai the God of the Bible, is not the true god. Talk about a shell game switch. This is opening ones eyes to the same promise by the serpent in the garden. Manly Hall speaking of the Masons and the Mystery of his Craft stated, “The seething energies of LUCIFER are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply (this) energy.”(Locked Keys of Freemasonry, p. 48 Manly P. Hall).

Blavatsky was in telepathic communication with the ‘Masters’ of the ancient wisdom, they influenced and directed her like they have done with so many others throughout history. Like the Masons, H. P. Blavatsky stated how the lightbearer Lucifer brings knowledge, “It is but natural … to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the ‘Harbinger of Light,’ bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah” (H. P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine: The Synthesis of Science, Religion, and Philosophy, Vol. II – Anthropogenesis, Theosophical University Press, 1970, “Verbatim with the Original Edition,” 1888, p. 243)

Like others, she experienced this light that changed her worldview and called her to be a vehicle to channel the ancient wisdom from the masters. This light is known to those who have experienced it as spiritual and life changing. She thought it brought her spiritual knowledge, opening her to a higher consciousness. From their own words we know who this light is.

The Theosophical Society for many years called one of its publications Lucifer. Alice Bailey, a former Theosophist founded the Arcane Society. Bailey established Lucifer Publishing Company in 1922 to help disseminate her works. In 1923 the name was changed to Lucis Publishing Company, which was a bit less obvious in relation to what they were publishing.

Another occultist, Annie Besant, was the Theosophical Society’s president from 1907 to 1933. She proclaimed the coming of a World Teacher would be the spiritual master named Lord Maitreya.

Benjamin Crème- during his early years Crème studied art and esoteric philosophy, and eventually became known both as a modernist painter and an expert in the teachings of Helena Blavatsky and Alice A. Bailey.1 While he came to believe in the existence of the “Masters of Wisdom” (i.e., great teachers who have evolved to a higher level of existence) through the writings of the Theosophists…” (“Benjamin Creme Biography,” [Online]. URL

Benjamen Creme who is the main promoter of Maitreya’s mission today regards Blavatsky’s writings (and Mrs. Bailey’s work) as “preparatory” for the unfolding of a spiritual plan for the planet. All of these names were tied in together for they were initiates into the light and conduits for the masters of the spiritual realm to manipulate for their coming spiritual coup d’état.

We find from another initiative whom this Christ really is and how global servers will be united, “Christ is the same force as Lucifer… Lucifer prepares man for the experience of Christhood. (He is) the great initiator. … Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into a New Age … each of us in some way is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation … the particular doorway through which the individual MUST pass if he is to come fully into the presence of his light and his wholeness. “for it is an invitation into the New Age” (David Spangler Reflections on the Christ p.44-45)

Lucifer is known as the light bearer in the Bible record. He can mesmerize people by his look and speech and can give them spiritual experiences par none (except for the genuine ones that come from God). Though he is clothed in light his real nature and knowledge is darkness. The Luciferic Initiation reveals to man their own divinity, and gives them the ability to manipulate and control what they believe are universal energies.

Alice Bailey said, “each contact with the Initiator leads the initiate closer to the centre of pure darkness.” (Alice Bailey, The Rays and the Initiations: Volume V, A Treatise on the Seven Rays, 1960, Lucis Publishing Company, New York, p. 174)

The Bible warns of those who call darkness light and change light for darkness. So many have experienced a light or even met an angel of light and were enamored with it as Eve was with hers. Everyone who encounters this light has a life changing experience, not knowing it is based on occultic knowledge.

Fritjoff Capra Ph.D., physicist and systems theorist, author of “The Tao of Physics” writes: “Five years ago, I had a beautiful experience . . . . I was by the ocean one late summer afternoon, watching the waves roll in and feeling the rhythm of my breathing, when I became aware of my whole environment as being engaged in a great cosmic dance. Being a physicist, I knew that the sand, rocks, water and air around me were made of vibrating molecules and atoms . . . but until that moment I had only experienced it through graphs, diagrams end mathematical theories. As I sat on that beach my former experiences came to life; I `saw’ cascades of energy coming dawn from outer space, in which particles were created and destroyed in rhythmic pulses; I `saw’ the atoms of the elements and those of my body participating in this cosmic dance of energy; I felt its rhythm and I `heard’ its sound, and at that moment I knew that this was the dance of Shiva, the Land of the Dancers worshipped by the Hindus.’

From this experience came “The Tao of Physics.” He focused on the oneness of all things: he got the message from his experience. This is the new age/ occult experience- that everything is united.

Bill Wilson with his close friend, Bob Smith were involved in the occult before they invented the method of AA.

The “original mystical experience” to which Wilson referred was his alleged “conversion.” It came about in a classic occult encounter with a “white light,” rather than by faith in Jesus Christ through the gospel. Wilson had fallen into a deep depression and in desperation cried out, “If there is a God, let Him show Himself I am ready to do anything, anything!” He had demanded something that God was under no obligation to provide. It was an opportunity for Satan to respond with a “spiritual experience” that set the stage for the seduction of millions. Wilson testified that in response to his cry:

Suddenly the room lit up with a great white light. I was caught up into an ecstasy . . . . It seemed to me, in the mind’s eye, that I was on a mountain and that a wind not of air but of spirit was blowing. And then it burst upon me that I was a free man ….

All about me and through me there was a wonderful feeling of Presence, and I thought to myself, “so this is the God of the preachers!” A great peace stole over me . . . .”(Stafford, “Hidden Gospel,” p. 14, Reference: p.297-298 Occult Invasion by Dave Hunt).

No it is not the god of the preachers but it is the god so many encounter as a light. Notice the light is a common denominator in these experiences. Certainly the Bible says God is light and dwells in inapproachable light (by men).

In the Book “The Seduction of Christianity” author Dave Hunt refers to Gerald Jampolsky’s experience:

“The power of mystical experience (a form of initiation) is expressed eloquently by Robert Schuller’s good friend and repeat guest on his “Hour of Power” TV program, Gerald Jampolsky.

This famous psychiatrist and best-selling author/lecturer tells of his meeting with Swami Muktananda: He touched me with peacock feathers. I began to have the impression that our minds were joined. He touched me again on the head with his hand. After this, beautiful colors appeared all around me, and it seemed as though I had stepped out of my body and was looking down on it. I saw colors whose depth and brilliance were beyond anything I had ever imagined.

I began to talk in tongues. A beautiful beam of light came into the room and I decided at that moment to stop evaluating what was happening and simply be one with the experience, to join it completely…. For the next three months, my energy level was heightened and I required very little sleep. I was filled with an awareness of love unlike anything I had known before” (Teach Only Love quoted by Orange County Resources interview with G. Jampolsky M.D. by phil. Friedman phd.p/3).

True or not, experience can be a very convincing paradigm. This is how so many have had a change of their worldview in a moment of time. Elizabeth Kubler Ross was one of the leading investigators of thanatology and NDE’s (near death experiences) described an experience with a light that she felt tremendous love from and healed her bowel obstruction. Yet this experience never led her to the gospel so one must question who she encountered as light.

“Consider, for example, the case of Will Baron. He had lost his confidence in the Bible in high school through the teaching of evolution. Later, through drugs and Eastern mysticism, he had become part of the New Age movement. He was, in fact, a board member of the New Age cult Lighted Way. On this special day Will had been doing his usual morning meditation for only a few minutes when, as he reports:

‘“Suddenly, a physical force that I had never felt before seemed to come upon me. Brilliant light filled my whole being… permeating every cell of my body. My brain, especially, was flooded with light, as if a thousand watt bulb had been switched on inside of nay head ….

‘I felt a deep sense of peace …. My mind, my rational thinking was still functioning normally, with clear and precise, logical thoughts. I had not taken any kind of drugs whatsoever.”

Suddenly, a man radiating intense golden-white light stood before me. My first perception was that the mysterious, shining figure looked just like Jesus Christ. Immediately a strong intuitive thought… surfaced that told me this person was Djwhal Khul, the high-ranking member of the White Brotherhood of Masters. who had dictated to Alice Bailey the contents of the metaphysical books she had published . . .’”

(Cited from Occult Invasion by Dave Hunt p.183-184; story of Will Baron, Deceived by the New Age (Pacific Press Publishing Association, 1990). pp. 61-62).

Hiding their darkness behind the light seems to be a common these from these ancient masters of disguise.

“And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works” (2 Cor. 11:14-15). In other words, do not marvel that they have this ability. Satan and those who are in his kingdom are readily able to do this.

Occult practitioner Alice Bailey wrote: [The Intelligent seeker ... is moving out from under doctrinal authority into direct personal spiritual experience and coming under the direct authority which contact with Christ and His disciples, the Masters, gives” (Externalisation of The Hierarchy, Alice Bailey, p. 417)

This is not an isolated belief but a wide held belief in the New Age movement. Lola Davis a new age writer tells us the New Age “Christ” resides on a different plane of consciousness from what we experience. There he directs the Masters, “a group of advanced souls, most of them discarnate ... known variously as the White Brotherhood, The Great White Lodge, the Masters of Wisdom, the Hierarchy, and the Angels around the Throne” (Lola Davis Toward a world religion for a new age p.186).

The Bible speaks of a deception that will affect the whole world in the last days. Jesus says in Mt.24 “many will come in my name saying I am,” and say I am the Christ. Many have come throughout history saying they are God or his representative. Maitreya says he comes not in Christ’s name but his own. What did Jesus warn about this? Another will come in his own name, him they will hear. Maitreya says, “I am the Prince of Peace....” (Message No. 100) and far too many believe it.

Maitreya also claims that he is the overarching influence over Jesus of Nazareth. And He will convince mankind by experience, by signs and disregard doctrine. Being “lit up” by a mystical experience (of light) is no guarantee that one is experiencing something true. What at first seems beautiful can be very invasive and powerfully misleading.

Physical sensations convince the participant that they have come into direct communication with a universal God, the inner god that is within everyone. The goal of these masters is to awaken to the deity within.

Maitreya states “experience of the Self within” (Share International, December 1988; Network News, Nov./Dec. 1988, pg.1). “My Task will be to take you into the Light of your own true nature, and realise for you the Gods you are” (excerpt of Maitreya’s message no. 71). “May the Divine Light and Love and Power of the One Most Holy God be now manifest within your hearts and minds. May this manifestation lead you to see each other as the gods you are”(Message 13, Feb. 1982). “Decked in all of the colors of the rainbow, glowing with the Light of God, man, one day will stand upright in his divinity. This I promise you.” (Message no. 4).

When you hear people speak of the divinity, the deity within, they are denying the Bible, Jesus and are actually mimicking the words of Lucifer the light bearer who said that he would be like the most high in heaven (Isa. 14:13-14) and lured Eve into the same idea (Gen.3:3-5). They are echoing something very ancient, the original first lie that entered the universe to challenge God’s rule, and it is powerful.

The root source of these belief are found in theosophy and in the pursuit mysticism, we find this common thread in all the writings of influential men and woman during this period of this modern occult spiritual awakening.

“The realization of this is needed today. Christ in God. God in Christ. Christ in you and Christ in me. This is what will bring into being that one religion which will be the religion of love, of peace on earth, of universal goodwill, of divine understanding, and of the deep recognition of God” (Alice Bailey, From Bethlehem to Calvary, Chapter two The First Initiation, The Birth at Bethlehem,

Under the influence of powers that were against the Christ of the Bible they communicated to her a distortion of what the bible actually says. For it is only the believer in the Gospel that can have Christ in them.

Besides Blavatsky and Bailey’s influences, there were other men and books popular among occultists and Theosophists during the 1920s. It is not surprising to see Baird Spalding saying nearly the same thing: “We know the greatest of all teachers came to show more fully that the Christ in him and through whom he did his mighty works is the same Christ that lives in you, in me in all mankind; that by applying his teachings do all the works that he did and greater works” (Baird Spalding, Teachings of the Masters of the Far East, p.16).

When you hear the words of everyone having Christ in them, though they may not yet be aware of this , you are hearing the same spirits that spoke to these people.

A key influence in the development of the “I AM” Ascended Masters movement were found in books by Baird T. Spalding (Published between 1924 and 1955). The five volumes, entitled Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East, which contain many of the beliefs central to the I AM movement. Spalding spoke of amazing experiences he and ten others of his group had while on a research trip in the Far East in 1894. (Life and teachings of the Masters of the Far East vol.1 p.9).

One of the two main I AM cults (founded in 1930) were by Guy (1878-1939) and his wife Edna Ballard (1886-1971), who held to the beliefs in Spalding's books. The Ballard’s were practicing Theosophists when Guy was contacted in 1930 by the so called Ascended Master Saint Germain who appeared in a visible, tangible body on Mount Shasta, California. His experiences are recorded in the first two books of what is known as the Saint Germain series: Unveiled Mysteries and the Magic Presence. Saint Germain was called the Lord of the Seventh Ray, who in previous incarnations claimed to be the Old Testament prophet Samuel, Saint Alban, and Sir Francis Bacon. They then began the “I AM Movement” and in 1932 the Ballard's began to release the message of the Ascended Masters to the public. Saint Germain described his task of initiating the Seventh Golden Age, the permanent “I AM” Age of Eternal Perfection on Earth. His “Christ is called the cosmic christ with a legion of light to accompany him” (I Am Healing Decrees, Saint Germaine press, 1976 pp.30-31). The idea was that God is within each man, as the “I am presence” and that the man who released presence can experience divinity in this life (the violet consuming ray).

The best way to convince someone is by experience, feelings and their senses because it bypasses the critical thinking of the mind that God gave man to scrutinize what is right and wrong. The angel of light comes (2 Cor. 11:14; 2 Thess 2:9), to introduce you to a spiritual experience that is heightened beyond anything occurring naturally. You may have a real spiritual experience, as are nearly all counterfeits, and you may even had a Jesus appear. But, he is not the historic Jesus of the Bible that is now in heaven waiting for the day to call his saints home. The Bible warns us about “another Jesus, another spirit that comes to deceive.

It should not astound us that when numerous groups in the past and today name this other Christ, he would have the same teachings of the ascended masters: “Maitreya enters now the world arena to teach men that they are Gods in potential, that they are powerful, indeed, and that conditioning, alone, holds them in thrall to superstition and fear, competition and greed. He will show men the way to renounce the past, and to construct, under His wise guidance, a civilization worthy of men who are moving into their Divinity. The day is not far off when men will hear his Call, and hearing, respond. The day is not far off when men will know that the long dark night is over, that the time has come to welcome the new light which has entered the world”“ (Source: Share International magazine, July/August 2000).

Maitreya is comparing the religion of Judaism that is fulfilled in Christ Jesus their Messiah and telling us that it is has kept us from the truth of who we really are- God. That when this light invades earth there will be a transformation. And this spiritual counterfeit light is getting brighter and bringing mankind into a new dark ages.

The Calling of Maitreya the Christ

Benjamen Crème explains: ‘there are 12 Masters in the world, but they are going to be forty Masters. Some of Jesus’ disciples are masters: the one who was John the Beloved, now the Master Koot Hoomi, Saint Paul, now the Master Hilarion; and Saint Peter, now the Master Morya and also the Master Jesus, himself.

At their head is Maitreya, the Master of all the Masters. Jesus, now known as Master Jesus, currently resides with Peter and John in Rome, and is attempting to reunite the Christian churches through a focus on Maitreya.” “Jesus of Nazareth and Maitreya,” [Online].

One of the ways Maitreya has worked behind the scenes is doing wonders as “Maitreya says those who search for signs will find them”(Message 10). These are supposedly synchronized with the emergence of Maitreya and His group of Masters at this time in the history of the world. “For those who seek signs of His coming, Maitreya has manifested miracles worldwide … preparing them for His imminent appearance” (Maitreya- News release no. 74, April 2005).

Grandiose claims are made through Maitreya’s messenger Benjamin Crème “(Lord Maitreya) will leave no doubt that He is the World Teacher. Maitreya will mentally ‘overshadow’ all of humanity simultaneously. Each of us, not only those watching or listening, will hear His words inwardly, telepathically, in our own language…Thus, all will know that the World Teacher is now among us. Maitreya’s open world-wide mission will have begun” (Benjamin Creme, Maitreya’s Mission, Vol. I, p. 11,)

What are they speaking about is a spiritual event unlike any other that will bring a covenant- an agreement with the people. An experience given to all mankind making it a universal acceptance no matter what ones belief system is. This will energize people to work together for his goal.

We are told that on the Day of Declaration, Maitreya will have everyone (simultaneously) hear his voice inwardly– telepathically in their own language. Feelings of love will result with spontaneous healings taking place throughout the world. If all goes according to plan, it will be quite convincing.

Barbara Marx Hubbard has a similar event that she calls a planetary Pentecost, she explains to us that at this time, a “quantum leap” in the evolution of mankind will occur as revealed to her by “the Christ”: “At the moment of cosmic contact, I will appear to you both through inner experience and through external communication on your mass media.” Hubbard says, at this time when “the divisions of the religions would be over…We would each know that God is within us…If all who feel we are connected to each other, to nature and to God join in a planetary Pentecost, we shall be transformed in this lifetime” (Barbara Marx Hubbard and the Armageddon Alternative,” Brooks Alexander, SPC Vol. 19:2/3, 1995, p. 49).

This concept has various names and practices to yield the same results. Occultist Alice A. Bailey discussed this “energy” experience as well: The new religion will be one of Invocation and Evocation, of bringing together great spiritual energies and then stepping them down for the benefitting and the stimulation of the masses. The work of the new religion will be the distribution of spiritual energy… (

To bring this spiritual energy to earth the spiritual masters gave an invocation, attempting “to increase the energy which comes from Maitreya and other Masters,” (“Help the Hierarchy with Transmission Work’ p.6). The Tara Centers have established what they call “transmission groups” these are meetings that involves group meditation and invoking the manifestation the focused as an aid in passing on the energies of the “Hierarchy” to earth. This has everything to do with a light that mesmerizes people – giving them a mystical experience. They are literally been preparing the spiritual climate for the reappearance of “their Christ. The idea of transmission groups receiving energy and mental images from these “ascended masters” and projecting that energy is occultic in its nature; and there is real spiritual power involved.

The 1940 version of the Great Invocation:

“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

Fulfill the purpose of the Coming One.

In 1945 the Master Djwhal Khul gave Bailey “The Great Invocation” and it was modified to become the “World Prayer.”

The New Age leaders know the meaning of the prayer, it is to bring forth the “Coming One” who (many) they believe is Lord Maitreya, the new Christ.

Here is a portion of The Invocation today:

‘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 center where the Will of God is known

Let purpose guide the little wills of men -

The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

…Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Along with the invocation are various meditations- Example: “Christmas blessing”

“There will be a blessing from Maitreya on Christmas day (25 December) at 3 o’clock (3.00pm local time, wherever you are). Hold your attention on the crown chakra — the center at the top of the head — (this is the only time that the attention should be placed on this center, contrary to Transmission Meditation, where the attention is held on the ajna center) and sit in silent meditation while the energies flow- (Share International)

This Hindu type exercise shows us what kind of a Christ this Maitreya really is.

Bailey stated of the New Group of World Servers- “are overseeing or ushering, In the New Age and are present at the birthpangs of the new civilizatlon… (Externalization of the Hierarchy p. 70).

They are actively bringing in the kingdom of another Christ, whose spirit is working through those who disbelieve in Jesus as the one and only Christ. This spirit’s influence unites them with an alternative that is appealing to those in disobedience to the gospel. Success will be perceived as god given and the deception will then become prevalent to all its participants.
