As New Age /Occult forces are working to bring forth the New Age Christ, their ‘spirit guides’ (demons) are even giving them revelations regarding the coming rapture of the Church.
“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders” (2Thess 2:9)
Though a great many Catholics may not have heard of it and a significant number of other Christians may doubt, – the Rapture is a concept that is well accepted in New Age circles. The problem there is that the spirit guides seem to be spreading a bit of disinformation about its true nature. Bill Lambert, for instance, whose1991 conference we’ve been quoting; – talks of some form of ‘evacuation’ of a significant portion of the earths population around the time of the rise of the New Age Messiah, or Lord Matreya. Lambert is not alone in insisting that the coming of the New Age Christ will be accompanied by the spiriting away of many millions of human beings. He described three groups of people on earth when this messiah comes: those that would embrace him, – those not sure, – and those that could never accept the New Order. These will, in his words “elect to leave for another room.” These people, he went on, “would leave this dimension.” So his spirit guides were telling him. This will all happen, says he, – shortly after the appearance of the Antichrist.[i]
This is a common theme among New Age writers. UN diplomat Robert Muller weighed in on the matter, saying that those unable to accept the coming ‘paradigm shift’, will have themselves, “…parked in a special corral of the universe for having been retarding forces, true aberrations in the evolution and ascent of humanity.”[ii] [I can just feel the love there.] Barbara Marx Hubbard, calls it a “…time of selection [when] …self-centered humanity will become extinct”.[iii] Those resisting the New Christ will, according to another New Age conference, be removed from this earthly dimension – so the Christ will not have to deal with their ‘collective aura’ and negative energy. Ruth Montgomery, through her demonically inspired ‘automatic writing’, claims “millions will pass into the spirit”.[iv] The Guiding Spirits of the New Age know something is up, and are preparing their adherents for the disappearance of millions of Christians which they know is coming. 1Thessalonians 4:16-17 clearly lays out what is coming. “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.”
The Why Of It
So while some in the New Age Movement are waiting for those pesky Christians to be spiritually removed, (“those who will never accept” the christ), – others of a more scientific or occultic bent are eager to cooperate in creating the New Age. Hearkening all the way back to our discussions on Genesis 6: The rebellion of that age was a combination of the human and the demonic. The Nephilim were the offspring of the “daughters of men” and the “sons of god,” – or Satan’s host of Fallen Angels. So too, will the culmination of this rebellion be in one sense a joint venture between the Devil and Man. Revelation tells us an Unholy Trinity will rule the earth in that day. Just as God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit; – Satan will set up an evil imitative counterpart of Beast, Antichrist and False Prophet; – the demonic and the human.
Remember that the New Age goal is to destroy True Christianity and replace it with a One World Religion. Paul warns us that indeed a great apostasy will occur first, implying that that is what will create the conditions necessary for the rise of the Antichrist. “That day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.” (Second Thessalonians 2:3) Any event that made the Christian community of genuine believers, fear that they had been “left behind”, would surely shake the faith of many. Despair and confusion would reign. In addition, a “False Rapture” might lend credence to Liberal / non-literal Christianity with its ecumenical tendencies and its attendant rejection of many of the foundational doctrines of the faith; such as the Divinity of Jesus, the Virgin Birth, and the exclusivity of Salvation through Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross, etc. Considering the chaotic state the world would be in, that event would surely move many nominal-Christians toward accepting the global religion of the Antichrist.
Would such an event be possible to pull off? We need only return to Ivan Amato’s July / August 2000 article in MIT’s Technology Review magazine, entitled Lying With Pixels, to see just how it could. Mr. Amato describes how, “Deleting people or objects from live video, or inserting prerecorded people or objects into live scenes, is only the beginning of the deceptions becoming possible”.[v] To remove an object, a computer is used to store background information from the scene, and then, in laymen’s terms, realign the frames. The computer determines the foreground and immediate background of the object, finally filling the space of the object with matching pixels until the object is “suddenly gone”. It all takes place in the twinkling of an eye, – less than one-thirtieth of a second, to be exact. And it can be applied in real time. What this all means is that video images could be beamed as live newscasts showing people spontaneously disappearing or being raptured. Presented as “news reports,” the video images would be amazingly convincing. Consider again the ‘Holographic Allah’ we talked about; – the one that the US Army wanted to project over Baghdad. Technologically it was not a particularly big deal. Now one way to create holographs, is by projecting laser beams into space and then bouncing them off of orbiting satellites. They could easily be used to create the images of the world’s various “messiahs” required by New Age “prophecy.” According to Constance Cumbey, in her Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, they could also be used “…in such a manner as to appear that flames are coming from the sky”, suggesting the fulfillment of Revelation 13:13. It is possible that one single image could be produced that would be able to be viewed by up to one-third of the world’s population. There is even technology “…to make the image speak in the language of the areas to which it is beamed”. New Ager David Spangler, has admitted that laser projectors have been installed on the roof of St. John the Divine Episcopal Cathedral, in New York; – a home of New Age thought and practice.[vi] Other New Age sources have ‘predicted’ a worldwide vision where the New Age Christ will appear across the world, – speaking to each area in its predominant native tongue. Such “signs and wonders” could threaten to “seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” (Mark 13:22)
Where again does this technological “power” come from? Cutting Edge’s David Bay is among many that argue that it is Satanic power, allowed by God. Look again at Revelation 13:14. “Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth.” The word “power” used here and in many of the prophetic passages of Revelation is the Greek “exousia”. It means “ability”, “competency” “mastery over” and “superhuman”. By its very definition it suggests what may be happening here. The Illuminist / New World Order / New Age forces have been given a “superhuman ability or competency”, – a scientific knowledge with which to deceive the “inhabitants of the earth.” David Bay points out that Vogel, the developer of the Xerox copier, claimed to have received his invention in a psychic dream. Even Edison himself was a committed Theosophist. There is that connection between some scientific knowledge and the occult.[vii] It is not a stretch of prophecy that they intend to use the most advanced scientific knowledge: Glorifying Man through the use of Mankind’s greatest purported glory, – science. That is exactly the plan that Lemesurier revealed in the Illuminati blueprint, The Armageddon Script.
So that explains the scientific dimension: But there is also a spiritual dimension to the New Age plan. Whatever the ‘technology,’ it will all be done in cooperation with the ‘forces of the universe.’ New Age writer Kay Wheeler (or Ozmana), reveals information that she channeled from her spirit guide (personal demon) who claims to come from the “Seventh Celestial Plane of Life” (pits of hell). They tell us that Mother Earth, (a living feeling being), is unhappy, troubled. So what the Bible describes as the coming Tribulation and the New Age calls earth changes, will all result because: “The Mother is cleansing.” And as good little…earth children(?)…you “can help your Mother cleanse in such a way that does not destroy all life on this planet.” [There’s the case for and the link to radical environmentalism. I digress.] And here’s the justification and the reason for the coming removal of those who will not accept this New Order. “Many of these beings have appointments to leave at this time. Earth’s population needs to be decreased to bring forth the necessary changes upon this planet to move into the fourth dimension…. She has moved into this energy pattern, and those who plan to stay must be of this vibration.”[viii]
You see to the truly occult mind, it is all about spiritual technology. Which perhaps brings us to the occult explanation of why and how we may be living in the time that we are in. Way back in 1918, Satanist Aleister Crowley decided he wanted to create a “dimensional vortex” that would break the barrier or serve as sort of a bridge or portal between the physical and spiritual realms. So he performed a ritual called Alamantrah Working through which he believed that he summoned a demonic presence called Lam. One interesting thing about Lam, is that in drawings he made, this being closely resembled what later became known to the UFO crowd as “Alien Greys.” (There again is the connection between demons and aliens.) About 30 years later Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard and rocket scientist Jack Parsons performed a similar ritual they called Babalon Working. This time they sought, – in the words of Tom Horn, – the very “spirit of Babylon, the archetypal divine feminine to pass through the portal and to incarnate itself within a human being.” Many Satanists and high degree Masons believe that they were successful and that “she—the whore of Babylon—walks the earth today.”[ix] If indeed it were true; – She / It would be a product of human and demonic cooperation; – a spiritual expression of the New Age itself.
