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, http://laluni.helloyou.ws/netnews/bk/reappearance/reap1018.html).
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”) http://www.shareintl.org/maitreya/Ma_emerge.htm)
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 http://www.shareintl.org/cremebio.html)
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, http://laluni.helloyou.ws/netnews/bk/bethlehem/beth1022.html)
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]. http://www.shareintl.org/jesusnm.html.
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… (www.ibae.org/html/hftwef.html)
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.
