The New Age and the End Times

The topic of the New Age Movement is difficult to cover and I am fairly new in looking into it. There are occultic components and political attachments that I believe are the workings of the mystery of iniquity in order to bring about a New World Order that will centralize government and give control both spiritually and politically to the man of sin from Bible prophecy. According to scripture this New World Order will be headed by the man of sin, given power by the dragon.

Revelation 13:2-5
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

We see here that this ruler of the world, the beast, is given power to rule for 42 months (3 1/2 years) and none can or will stop him. To better understand any kind of religious aspect related to this worship, which I believe is this New Age Movement, it helps to learn a little more from Daniel as to how the leader of the world will view himself.

Daniel 11:36-39
And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forcesH4581: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

Forces, or ma`owz means place or means of safety, protection, refuge, stronghold, human protection (fig.). To me this sounds as though this man of sin will be self-exalting, placing all faith and trust in self and the “power within.” As you continue to read this page you will see that same focus within the many roots of the New Age Movement, focusing on discovering the “inner Christ consciousness we all have,” if we just believe in ourselves. This seems to me to be the perfect “religion” for a new age with a new leader who has discovered and harnessed the inner Christ consciousness to bring about a New World Order that will destroy old religious paradigms and finally bring about a “better world” without the constraining dogma of the old world...

Or so the blind will believe. Having been conditioned to faith in self they will see the power given to the beast and worship him and seek after him to discover their inner Christ consciousness. What they will be led down is a path away from God and the One True Christ to the pits of hell.

Matthew 7:13-23
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

There is an animosity we are all aware of when it comes to anyone saying their way is the only way to heaven. For Biblical Christians who put their faith in God’s Word and His Son, we will increasingly be the target of animosity as the ecumenism of the New Age dominates the world religious scene.

John 14:6,7
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

As I mentioned, I am not an expert in this field of research. As with most of the pages on this website it is a collection of information I found in my research of the different topics and how I feel it relates to what God warned us about in the last days. As you continue to read this page you will see the mindset of the many roots of the New Age Movement that I believe will fall into line when the man of sin comes to power. If you would like more background on this topic, I recommend reading Constance Cumbey’s books:

Constance Cumbey: Discovering the New Age Movement

Constance Cumbey Author of Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow: The New Age Movement and Our Coming Age of Barbarism tells her story on how she discovered the New Age Movement. Its an exciting story to hear as the truth of the new age movement is exposed from the shadows it hides behind, revealing its dark purposes and satanic plot in its hope for the Anti Christ. Constance also tells her thrilling account of how she basically shattered a Benjamin Creme gathering by saying the Lords Prayer, while they were waiting for Maitreya to show.. Get ready for an exciting time as Constance Cumbey tells her story. Filmed at the Radio Liberty 2006 conference, hosted by Dr. Stanley Monteith.

“Christ is the same force as Lucifer but moving in seemingly the opposite direction. Lucifer moves in to create the light within through the pressure of experience. Christ moves to release that light, that wisdom, that love into creation... Lucifer, like Christ, stands at the door of man’s consciousness and knocks. If man says, ‘Go away because I do not like what you represent. I am afraid of you,’ Lucifer will play tricks on that fellow. If man says, ‘Come in, and I will give to you the treat of my love and understanding and I will uplift you in the light and presences of the Christ, my outflow,’ then Lucifer becomes something else again. He becomes the being who carries that great treat, the ultimate treat, the light of wisdom. [Lucifer] is the light giver. … He stands no longer as the tester or the tempter but as the great initiator, the one who hands the soul over to the Christ and from the Christ on into even greater realms. … Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into a New Age, which is the age of man’s wholeness, 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. … At some point each of us faces the presence of Lucifer. We either fear it when we come to grips with what we term ancient evil or the spirit of darkness, or we move throughit and realize that we are each of us light and dark. … When we do accept it, we can emerge into the radiance of our inner light, the light that can never be extinguished. … Lucifer comes to give to us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it then he is free and we are free. That is the Luciferic initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation in the New Age. … In the New Age consciousness there is not good and evil.” | David Spangler, Lorian Association, Reflections on the Christ, Findhorn Publications p. 40, 44-45, Interconnections

Excerpt from Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, Chapter 8:

The New Age Movement - The Fourth Reich?

“One of the best-kept secrets of the twentieth century is the occultic roots and nature of the religious philosophy at the heart of the Third Reich. Exactly why this information remained classified for so long and such pressure was brought to bear upon those having intimate knowledge of this will probably remain a mystery until judgment day. Nevertheless there are some interesting clues.

“It is public knowledge that both Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt dabbled in the occult. Perhaps the same conspiring Luciferic spirit that induced Hitler to implement the darkens practices of occultism moves upon the Western powers to conceal the esoteric mysticism behind Nazism. Were they knowing participants in the portion of “The Plan” revealed by Alice Bailey in the 1930’s? Part of “The Plan” indicates that the New World Order necessary for total world domination by “The Christ” and “The Masters of Wisdom” would have to be established upon the foundations of a world badly traumatized by a severe war. The full truth may never be known.

“At any rate, for all practical purposes, the New Age Movement appears to qualify as a revival of Nazism. This is not to call every New Ager a Nazi. A substantial number of those participating in the New Age Movement are probably innocently involved for the finest and best of motives.

“Similar to Nazism, the New Age Movement is organized like a gigantic corporation. Also, like Nazism, the Movement is based upon a structure of initiates, adepts and masters. High level initiates always know more than low-level initiates. Chiefs always know more than Indians. Colonels and majors are always told more than privates of the plans and direction of the military. As in any large organization, most people quietly do their jobs without knowing the full nature of what they are involved with or precisely where they personally fit in the scheme of things...

“While still a very young child, Hitler was initiated into the finer mysteries of the occult. He attended a Benedictine monastery school near his German home. The abbot in charge was fascinated by the lore of the Albigensians or Cathars, who could probably be accurately classified as early New Agers in that they believed man could gain the powers of a god. The occult interests Hitler gained in this school stayed with him all of his adult life and helped to shape his future spiritual philosophy.

“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 ot 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 it with drugs...

“Successful in contacting the top, Hitler rightly believed he had established communication with Lucifer, from whom he openly coveted possession. Studies have shown that mind-expansion drugs, and transcendental meditation as well as other forms of meditation that require the emptying of the mind, produce the same type of side effects, including flashbacks and delusions of grandeur. From that point, Hitler suffered the known side effects of both prolonged meditation and mind-expanding drug abuse...

Where the doctrine prevails that all men are created in the image of God, it is hard to maintain racism and anti-Semitism. Where the doctrine abounds that men have evolved from differing root races and are at varying stages of evolutionary development, it becomes easy to justify classification and discrimination.

“Final solutions become the logical next step. This was never God’s plan. Nations were punished for the idolatry and infanticide - not for their blood-strains...

“In his book Running God’s Plan, Alice Bailey’s husband, Foster Bailey, stated in 1972:

“Another approved hierarchical project is the uniting of the nations of Europe in one cooperating peaceful community. The plan is not for a new all-Europe government nor for a common language, but for right national relations dedicated to the welfare of the people living in those countries undistorted by national pride, ambitions and prejudices... This project is quite a different proposition to those in Africa and Russia. It was initiated some years ago and got underway as ‘Pan Europa.’ Many ways were tried to promote this plan, but the idea was not sufficiently idealized by the people who were a bit too sophisticated and firm in their belief in the practical value of selfishness. Here we are dealing with a most intelligent people, highly organised, well-educated, alert to world affairs, but proud of their differences and convinced of their rightness about all things. This was therefore a much tougher problem but dear to the heart of the ‘European Master.’

“One attempt was to begin by uniting the peoples living in the Rhine River valley using that river as a binding factor. It was an attempt by a disciple but did not work. Now another attempt is in full swing, namely the six nation European Common Market” (pp. 14-15).

“Even a failing history student will recognize the fact that it was Hitler who tried to unite Europe, using the Rhine River valley as a binding factor! Is Spangler really so naive? Or is he practicing another tactic used by Hitler - the big lie technique?” (pp. 99-100; 103; 108)

The above excerpt has chilling ramifications revealing the spirit behind the rise of Europe to power and where that will lead eventually as a globalized world continues to be created under the radar of most of the people who will find themselves given a choice to join it or stand up for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This same uniting force of international law, business and cooperation is leading to the same end that Europe has found itself in, the handing over of national sovereignty to a global body that will be headed by one man, the man of sin. Amazingly enough, a new foreign minister post is being created that will speak for Europe, joined together under a new “European Constitution,” the Treaty of Lisbon.

February 28, 2009 Blog post by Constance Cumbey:

One of my earliest and most disturbing observations about the New Age Movement apart from its obvious prophetic ramifications was its strong resemblance, if not total identity to Nazism. From Aryanism to “cleansing actions,” proclamation of what happened to Jews in World War II was a result of “bad national karma,” and discussion of sub-races, master races the parallels with Nazism were clear. It was fortunate for the New Agers that they had the likes of Walter Martin, Douglas Groothuis, Doug Coe, Art Lindsley, Spiritual Counterfeits Project, Mitch Pacwa, et al to tell all to go back to sleep -- that the New Agers were not networked politically and further it was erroneous to equate the New Age Movement with Nazism and even more so with “fulfillment of Biblical prophesy” (Doug Groothuis -- and the correct word should have been prophecy, NOT “prophesy.”

Advertising blitzes are now in full swing in the great state of Texas and perhaps elsewhere to raise expectations for an appearance of an alleged “Maitreya the Christ.” I discovered to my dismay that they were offering for free on line several of Benjamin Creme’s books which were normally sold for large profits in New Age bookstores. To fight fire with fire, I made on line editions of my two published books which are in probably greater demand.

I discovered the most horrible form of anti-Semitism yet in Benjamin Creme’s books. It was one closely resembling another New Age change agent who specializes in deceiving conservative Americans: Eustace Mullins. On a trip to the Los Angeles Simon Weisenthal Institute in summer of 1986, I was given a copy of Eustace Mullins’ THE SECRET HOLOCAUST. He claimed in that book that the Jews had been the real war criminals in Germany and that when they feared they would be charged with war claims, they simply dressed up bodies of their dead German victims as Jews and falsely claimed they were Jews. The Jews, claimed Mullins, had escaped to ‘rest camps’ such as Auschwitz and waited out the war there.

Well, the Eustace Mullins historical revisionism is now repeating itself with Benjamin Creme. Their new song is this:

1. The Nazis viciously killed Jews and others during World War II [true enough!]
2. The Nazis DIED and were REINCARNATED as Israel Jews.
3. Ergo, the Israelis are REINCARNATED NAZIS.

By extension, therefore, anything done to these Israelis is justifiable because they are by this definition, “Nazis” paying the price for what they did in their “previous incarnations” in World War II.

Here are portions from the incredible passages of Creme’s book THE WORLD TEACHER FOR ALL HUMANITY:

Q. You said a number of former Nazis have incarnated in Israel. It seems they are continuing the same pattern from their previous life — oppression and racially-motivated abuse of others, taking land for the ‘chosen’ group. How does the Law of Karma help individual souls learn and evolve in this way?

A. The Law of Karma does not help individual souls to learn and evolve in that way. Certainly, the Law of Karma is at work in the displacement of these Nazi military and other leaders, who are acting in Israel as they would have done in Germany in their previous incarnation. It is because of their ray make-up and because they find themselves in a similar situation. They see themselves as Israeli. They would simply read the problems of the time. The problems to them are that Israel is visited every other week by young men and women who blow themselves up when they get on a bus or enter a café, and kill Israelis. The Israelis hate this. They hate the unexpectedness of it; that is one of the terrors of terrorism. . . .

“Does the Law of Karma help individual souls learn and evolve in this way?” These people incarnated in Israel in re-lation probably to thousands of Jews in Germany that they had murdered, oppressed in every way. They grew to hate Jews for whatever reason. It was Hitler’s aim to get rid of all the Jews in the world if he could do it. He could not do it, but the Nazis got rid of about 6 million in Europe. They are responsible, and have now come back as Jews.

“It is not learning to evolve. It is the Law of Cause and Effect, that is, karma. They are living as the very people that they were so hateful to and oppressed in their previous incarnation. They are also bringing with them the quality of their ray structure, the energies which they use, which gave them power in Germany. These people were not the top people, but the people under them in the SS and army. It is not just the odd individual, there are a lot. Large numbers of Nazis have also reincarnated in Argentina and other places, including the USA

It is getting prophetically easy to see how New Agers can justify a conquest and hoped for destruction of Israel and its capital Jerusalem. This is not new but the Creme theme is a new twist. Stay tuned! Constance


Alice Ann Bailey

The following is an excerpt from pg. 31,32 of For Many Shall Come In My Name by Ray Yungen:

The popularization of the very name New Age has been attributed to her writings. Born Alice LaTrobe-Bateman in Manchester, England on June 16, 1880, she grew up as a society girl and enjoyed all the privileges of the British upper-class. At the age of 35, her life changed forever and later, in her unfinished biography she wrote:

“I discovered, first of all, that there is a great and divine Plan... I discovered, for a second thing, that there are Those Who are responsible for the working out of that Plan and Who, step by step and stage by stage, have led mankind on down the centuries.”

Alice had her first contact with a voice that claimed to be a master in November of 1919. Calling himself the “Tibetan,” he wanted Alice to take dictation from him. Concerning this, Alice wrote:

“I heard a voice which said, ‘There are some books which it is desired should be written for the public. You can write them. Will you do so?’”

Alice felt reluctant at first to take on such an unusual endeavor but the voice continued urging her to writ the books. Alice experienced a brief period of anxiety in which she feared for her health and sanity. She was finally reassured by one of her other masters that she had nothing to fear and that she would be doing a “really valuable piece of work.” The valuable work” Alice was to do lasted thirty years between 1919 and 1949, by means of telepathic communication, Alice Bailey wrote nineteen books for her unseen mentor.

To occultists, the significance of the Alice Bailey writings was that they foretold that in the coming Aquarian Age “the teachings of the East and of the West must be fused and blended before the true and universal religion - for which the world waits - could appear on earth.” [This one sentence sums up the entire theme of my book, A Time of Departing]

There also would be a “Coming One,” whom she called “the Christ,” who would not be the Lord Jesus Christ whom Christians await the return of, but an entirely different individual. This man would embody all the great principles of occultism, chiefly the divinity and perfectibility of man, and consequently expect recognition and honor as to his own lordship and divinity.

This sounds a lot like what Albert Pike wrote of in 1871 regarding “the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.” This is the Biblical man of sin from Revelation 13:1-10. Ray’s book is focused on the origins of these occultic teachings and how they are creeping into the church and focused on the inner self. With the New Age, the focus is on self and bettering oneself and ones place in society. This all took off in the 60’s sex, drugs and rock n’ roll movement. To understand the spiritual influence brought about by music, watch They Sold Their Souls for Rock N’ Roll and see how popular bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Marilyn Manson and others forward the wicked agenda that has blinded generations.

Matthew 6:19-21
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

For Many Shall Come In My Name by Ray Yungen pp.137-138

I believe that Raphael and Alice Bailey’s “Tibetan” are familar spirits. I also believe they are revealing their plan of operation in their writings. The intent of these beings can be seen by what the following metaphysical practitioners convey:

“It is all there -- just look for it. Seek the immortal, eternal Spirit that dwells within you -- the “I am presence,” containting all that was, is, or ever shall be.... The whole of life will become more meaningful as you live from the center within. Remember that you are Gods in the Making.” | Donald Yott, Man and Metaphysics (New York, NY: Sam Weiser, Inc., 1980), p. 103.
“It is not necessary to ‘have faith’ in any power outside of yourself.” | Shakti Gawain, Creative Visualization, op. cit., p. 15.

The Angel of Light

Who do you think would want you to believe something like that? Who would want you to believe that God does not exist outside of yourself -- that you don’t need o have faith in anything external. New Age writer/philosopher David Spangler reveals who in his book Reflections on the Christ when he writes:

“Some being has to take these energies into his consciousness and substance and channel them as it were to those other beings who must receive them, in this case humanity. The being who chose to embody these energies and to be in essence the angel of man’s inner evolution is the being we know as Lucifer.” | David Spangler, Reflections of the Christ (Findhorn Foundation, second edition, 1978(, p. 36.)

He lays out the entire program behind the New Age movement in the following explanation:

He [Lucifer] comes to make us aware of our power within, to draw to ourselves experience. He comes to make us aware of the power of creative manifestation which we wield.

“When you are working with the laws of manifestation you are in essence manifesting a Luciferic principle.” | David Spangler
“Christ is the same force as Lucifer but moving in seemingly the opposite direction. Lucifer moves in to create the light within through the pressure of experience. Christ moves to release that light, that wisdom, that love into creation... Lucifer, like Christ, stands at the door of man’s consciousness and knocks. If man says, ‘Go away because I do not like what you represent. I am afraid of you,’ Lucifer will play tricks on that fellow. If man says, ‘Come in, and I will give to you the treat of my love and understanding and I will uplift you in the light and presences of the Christ, my outflow,’ then Lucifer becomes something else again. He becomes the being who carries that great treat, the ultimate treat, the light of wisdom. [Lucifer] is the light giver. … He stands no longer as the tester or the tempter but as the great initiator, the one who hands the soul over to the Christ and from the Christ on into even greater realms. … Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into a New Age, which is the age of man’s wholeness, 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. … At some point each of us faces the presence of Lucifer. We either fear it when we come to grips with what we term ancient evil or the spirit of darkness, or we move throughit and realize that we are each of us light and dark. … When we do accept it, we can emerge into the radiance of our inner light, the light that can never be extinguished. … Lucifer comes to give to us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it then he is free and we are free. That is the Luciferic initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation in the New Age. … In the New Age consciousness there is not good and evil.” | David Spangler, Lorian Association, Reflections on the Christ, Findhorn Publications p. 40, 44-45, Interconnections

Even if Spangler had not written these words, the link between Lucifer and the New Age movement would still be evident to Christians from reading 2 Corinthians 11:13-15:

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of rightrousness; whose end shall be according to their works. (emphasis mine)

For this deception to be effective, he would have to come as an “angel of light.” To judge a belief system as being satanic, one should compare how close it comes to Satan’s own statements about himself. God is asking him, “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” (Isaiah 14:12). Then He reminds Satan of his own words when he challenged God:

Isaiah 14:13-14
For thou [Satan] hast said in thine heart, “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north; I will be like the most High.” (emphasis added)

Then later, when Satan deceived Eve in the Garden, he said:

Genesis 3:5
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good from evil. (emphasis mine)

Without a doubt, the New Age movement fits that bill.


As you read the following, think about how your thoughts and feelings may have been influenced by the following:

The Plan today and tomorrow « original link

The Plan been in the making for a long time through the channels of various societies and organizations. In the contemporary world, various movements under the umbrella of the New Age have emerged, all promoting The Plan and making efforts to conceal its true identity by promoting acceptable and often humanitarian and environmental names to the public. But who are they? Who are the New Age propagandists? Hannah Newman states:

There are umbrella groups actively ‘networking’ other organizations into The Plan: the ‘International Cooperation Council’ (since changed to ‘Unity in Diversity’ - a network of 300+ organizations), ‘Lucis Trust’ (publisher of Alice Bailey, once called ‘Lucifer Trust’), ‘Stanford Research Institute’ (educational material, including a ‘New Age Manifesto’), the ‘Lorian Association’ (headed by David Spangler), ‘Share International’, ‘Tara Center’ (both headed by Benjamin Creme), ‘Amnesty International’, ‘World Federalists’ (world politics), The ‘Networking Institute’ (prominent in the Far East), ‘World Goodwill’ (humanitarian aid), ‘New Group of World Servers’ (social action), ‘Whole Earth catalogs’ (environment and nutrition), the ‘First Earth Battalion’ (US Military), ‘Planetary Citizens’ (global politics), the ‘Rainbow Coalition’ (interracial unity), New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine (interfaith dialog), the Pacific Institute (courses for management). Prominent individuals who publicly laud the New World Order include Willy Brandt (German ex-chancellor), Prof. J. Tinbergen (Nobel Prize winner), George Bush (ex-U.S. president), Robert Kennedy (veteran U.S. Senator, former Attorney General), Margaret Mead (anthropologist), Carl Rogers (psychotherapist), Eric Fromm (psychologist), Barbara Marx Hubbard (Democratic nominee for VP in 1984), Robert Muller (former Asst. UN Secretary General), U Thant (Muller’s UN boss and mentor), Aurelio Peccei (founder of the Club of Rome), Isaac Asimov (scientist and sci-fi writer), Alvin Toffler (author of ‘Future Shock’), George Christie (founder of Intelsat Consortium of 106 countries), pop singers John Denver and Judy Collins, historians William Irwin Thompson and Theodore Roszak, actress Shirley MacLaine, psychic Edgar Cayce.

“One-fourth of humanity must be eliminated from the social body. We are in charge of God’s selection process for planet earth. He selects, we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, Death.” | Psychologist Barbara Marx Hubbard Eugenics Movement

Most of the network groups have some connection with ‘Planetary Initiative for the World We Choose’, run by a ‘World Council of Wise Persons’ and/or a Coordinating Council’ [not known if they are the same]. This group publicizes dates of its meetings at the UN, and even names of members, such as Buckminster Fuller, Norman Cousins, Dr. Carlos Romulo, Brooke Newell (VP of Chase Manhattan Bank), Gerhard Elston (ex-director of Amnesty International), Helen Kramer
(Int’l Assoc. of Machinists), Robert Muller (Chancellor, UN University for Peace), Donald Keys (of ‘Planetary Citizens’).

Aggressive recruiting into the New Age, besides the above organizations, is going on through the following more general groups and activities [mostly from NA sources]: Montessori and Waldorf schools, Theosophy and Anthroposophy, Transcendental Meditation, Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Zero Population Growth, Planned Parent- hood, Hunger Project, Voluntary Simplicity, Bread for the World, most disarmament groups, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Club of Rome, Skull and Bones (Yale fraternity), the International Legal Commission (UN consultant), UNICEF (UN relief agency), World Council of Churches (ecumenical Christian), ‘A Course on Miracles’ (interfaith study group), Unitarian churches, Bahai and Sufi sects (Moslem), The Door (NYC medical facility), New Thought courses, many interfaith dialog projects, most health food stores, the entertainment industry. According to Ferguson, governmental groups (U.S.) which have embraced New Age include the Department of Defense (invited Ferguson as keynote speaker at their annual dinner, 1982), the National Institute of Mental Health, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Industrial giants which require their managers to attend New Age seminars: General Motors, AT&T, Chrysler Corporation, several oil companies, Lockheed, Blue Cross-Blue Shield. [Ferguson’s list is 17 years old at this point; we can assume the NA influence to be significantly wider by now.]

NA spokesmen have no anxiety about their movement being sabotaged from within, due to their deliberate structure of ‘a network of networks’. Described by Ferguson (’Aquarian Conspiracy’) as the opposite of a bureaucracy, “Its organizational chart would resemble a badly knotted fishnet... Its center is everywhere... Its life does not hinge on any one [group or leader].” The networks take the same action, she said, not because they collude together, but because they share the same assumptions. Each network is independent of the others and no one organization or leader is indispensable; therefore, anyone causing a PR disaster or deciding to fight The Plan can be eliminated without damaging the network, with others taking over the function. [The Jim Jones Guyana fiasco was a good example: the ‘Spiritual Community Guide’ of 1972 listed his People’s Temple as a ‘New Age spiritual center’; after the mass suicide, ‘New Age Magazine’ branded him as “a dangerous example of Christian fundamentalism” and he was quietly removed from the Guide. See Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, Constance Cumbey, p.60] Although it is claimed that New Age has no leader or structure, there are numerous organizational charts, a world center (’Findhorn Community’ in Scotland), and several ‘holy sites’ where ‘masters’ can be found - including Jerusalem [which explains world pressure to delegitimize this city as Israel’s capital and internationalize it]. NA has its priesthood too, certain spokesmen whose words are received as law. They include: Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Benjamin Creme, David Spangler, Marilyn Ferguson, Mark Satin, Peter LeMesurier, Maharishi Yogi, George Gurdjieff, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, H.G. Wells, Nicholas Roerich, Buckminster Fuller, George Trevelyan. New Age “Bibles” (books studied and meticulously applied) include: ‘Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom’ (Creme), ‘Externalisation of the Hierarchy’ (Bailey) [containing ‘The Plan for the New World Order’], ‘The Rays and the Initiations’ (Bailey), ‘The Secret Doctrine’ (Blavatsky) [the Aryan race theory], ‘Revelation: the Birth of a New Age’ (Spangler) [describing the ‘Luciferic initiation’ as a NA requirement], ‘The Open Conspiracy, Blueprints for a World Revolution’ (Wells), ‘The Critical Path’ (Fuller) [plans for undermining orthodox religions by use of computers], ‘The Armageddon Script’ (LeMesurier) [plans to stage a “second coming of Christ” to satisfy Christian expectations].

Looking around in the world, one could witness various revelations of the New Age Plan: Tarot, yoga, channeling, lightwork, meditation, healing, UFO’s, Alien Cultures, spirituality, altered states of consciousness, yoga, veda & dharma, mysteries, astrology, humanism, etc. One might also mention The Church of Scientology and the Cabbala, the two major spiritual attractions among celebrities in Hollywood. Working around the world, various New Age movements, originally in co-operation with either Theosophicals, the Baileys, H. G. Wells, or David Spangler and his Findhorn Institute, have flourished, such as Amnesty International, Greenpeace, the Humanist Movement, the Freemasonry, etc.

The most respected “priests” of the New Age, such as Benjamin Creme, David Spangler, Alice Bailey and Helena Blavatsky, have declared that their “God” is someone called Sanat Kumara, the “Ancient of Days” and the “One Initiator.” This person revealed a little bit of his identity during a “channeling” by a certain John Armitage in London on 21 September 1996. It states:

Sanat Kumara is the brother of Sananda. Sanat Kumara is your planetary Logos. He is very much concerned with the Ascension of your planet. There is erroneous information circulating upon your planet that states that Sanat Kumara come from Venus, or comes from Venus. Of course in your English language these two statements have different meanings. Sanat Kumara does not come from Venus, although he came from there to this planet Earth. How did he get here? Do any of you remember that in 1987 there was this event known as the Harmonic Convergence? Now many of you will understand now that no-body knew at that time what the Harmonic Convergence was. Many people were first with information that at this time this event which had become known on the planet as the Harmonic Convergence would take place; but if you questioned anyone about what it was, they replied that they didn’t know. People went in groups to many temples and holy places. They gathered in homes, houses, halls, and they meditated and allowed the energies to converge harmonically. This convergence of energy opened up a vortex through which Sanat Kumara grounded his energy into Mother Earth.

And who is allegedly his brother? Viewing his picture and reading his file, it is obvious that the New Age occultism regards Jesus as Sananda. Thus this Sanat person claims to be Jesus Christ’s brother! He is also said to be “the eternal youth from the Planet Venus.” In occultism, Lucifer is called Venus and Benjamin Creme himself, in a radio interview, admitted that Lucifer came to the earth, from Venus, 18.5 million years ago. Lucifer is Venus, the Sanat (or Satan!) Kumara, the deity of the New Age leaders and, maybe not to their knowledge yet, the New Agers in general. (Hidden Dangers, 58n, 65,66.). And his number is, according to various New Age literature, 666, the threefold number of man. Hannah Newman states:

Goal of the Plan - Initiation: All who wish to enter the New Age ‘on the physical plane’ [alive] must undergo an ‘energy activation’ or ‘rebirth’ - usually marked by a subjective trance induced ‘light experience’ where one meets either a ‘spirit guide’ or one’s ‘higher self’ (no difference since ‘all is one’). This ‘altered state of consciousness’ will eventually lead to a ‘Luciferic initiation’ into the ‘new humanity’, or a vow of allegiance to Lucifer as god. Those who cannot (no souls) or will not (’not sufficiently developed in their spiritual journey’) will be sent on to their next life in a global ‘cleansing action’ (Alice Bailey, ‘The Rays and the Initiations’ pp.754-755).By means of this ‘initiation’ all will continue on their journey to ‘godhood’ at the new level, which includes ‘personal experience of the knowledge of good and evil’. ... and one cannot become a complete god with only one side. “Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it, then he is free and we are free. That is the Luciferic initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.” (Spangler, ‘Reflections on the Christ’) NAers confirm that this is what Lucifer offered to Eve in the Garden, and it’s being offered again today. Only it’s been ‘misunderstood due to fear inherited from the superstitious Jews’.

5. Dealing with opposition to the Plan: The only spiritual systems which will not work in this scheme are the monotheistic or ‘personal immortality’ religions (’fundamentalist’ or Bible-based Christianity and Judaism, some kinds of Islam) which ‘refuse to abandon their fear and separation’ and are ‘outmoded and dangerous in their exclusivity’. Even if they were not separatist, Blavatsky explains that they err with “gods created by man in his own image and likeness, a blasphemous and sorry caricature of the ever unknowable.” Likewise Creme brands the Jewish tradition of blood sacrifice as “impossible” and blames Judaism for the Christian teaching of Christ as a blood atonement for sin. These faiths and their adherents are an obstacle to mankind’s progress toward the next ‘quantum leap’. A brochure by the ‘New Group of World Servers’, adorned with a ‘666’ design, calls them “religious experiments which spread the virus of hatred and separation” and which “have no part in the New Age.”

Who would like to cut off religious Jews and believing (evangelical, fundamentalist or rather “born-again”) Christians? Who is their enemy? The only religions preaching and proclaiming that the Messiah could not be a guru, or a Tibetan Master or any of the ideas promoted by the New Age, are religious/fundamentalist Jews and Christians. The religious Jews are still awaiting their Messiah and will, according to the Tanakh (Old Testament), realize that the New Age Messiah is a fake and will denounce him. Also, Christians cannot accept a guru Messiah as Jesus Christ, whose Second Coming they await. Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and other major religions in the world can easily reconcile their awaited “Messiah” with the New Age caricature. And who would like to be promoted to the status of the Jewish Messiah and Christians’ Jesus? According to the Jewish and Christian Bibles that character is called Lucifer. Hannah Newman continues:

Lucifer is a Latin word meaning light bearer - he whom the Jews have called “helel ben shahar” (Isaiah 14:12) or ‘shining one, son of the morning’ (’The Beacon’, vol. XLVII, no 9, 1978, pub by Lucis Trust), also the anointed cherub who was in the Garden of Eden (Ezekiel 28:12-15). NAers themselves say that this is the one known as Satan, but that his activity and intentions have been misunderstood (or deliberately slandered - given the name “hasatan” or “the enemy” by the Hebrews and expanded by the Christians). New Agers honor Lucifer as the ultimate being- turned-god, the one who first promised to bring mankind into godhood (appearing to Adam and Eve, and also before that). But since many are not able to accept this name, he allows others to call him ‘krishna’, ‘buddha’, or even ‘christ/ messiah’. They insist, however, that Maitreya is the one all these faiths are waiting for, including Jews who await Moshiach. They recognize Chinese worship of ‘the dragon’, and Egyptian/Hindu worship of ‘the cobra’, as forms which Lucifer takes on. They also approve of witches who worship Lucifer in the form of a goat-man, known in nature cults as ‘Pan’ (the deity worshiped at Findhorn and credited with their unique agricultural methods - see ‘The Magic of Findhorn’ by Paul Hawken). Lucifer, Creme preaches, is the only being to have evolved to a ‘7th degree initiation’, as opposed to Buddha (6th) or Jesus (4th) (the latter was briefly classed as a 5th degree, which would have released him from further reincarnation; however, he was found “unworthy” of this level).Lucifer is personally in charge of our planetary evolution - thus, our ‘creator’. He (as Maitreya) is quoted by Creme as having “nourished” all the genius which humankind has produced, including Freud, Jung, Picasso, Mahatma Gandhi, Karl Marx and Einstein (all these reaching a ‘2nd level’ initiation). Lucifer arrived here 18-1/2 million years ago from the planet Venus, which became known by one of his names, ‘The Morning Star’. At some point Maitreya (now in a physical body) will allow Lucifer to inhabit him, when all are ‘freed from the unreasoning fear’ of this name - hence the term and goal of the ‘Luciferic initiation’. The number 666, held as Lucifer’s sacred number, is to be used wherever possible to hasten his appearance, or alternately, as a ‘signal for help’ to UFOs whose inhabitants serve under Lucifer.

Thus, is this Maitreya (possessed by Lucifer) going to appear, and if so, when? What date do the New Agers themselves promote?

The Year 2000

The Plan is a blueprint of how this New Age Messiah is going to appear, also hinting to at which point in history, setting a proposed date for his appearance. Hannah Newman once more states:

Monotheistic influence is also holding up the show more than was anticipated. In 1945, Maitreya announced that he would reveal himself when (among other global reforms) “people are released from authoritarian supervision of their religious thought.” By his own admission, he must be invited by mankind to take over on a religious/spiritual level. With each postponement of Maitreya’s ‘Day of Declaration’, there appears to be increasing frustration among NA spokesmen at the refusal of ‘the old order’ of monotheistic groups to obey the ‘laws of human evolution’ and die out. Lucis Trust (’World Goodwill Newsletter’, summer 1982) cited “three prominent examples” of “rising fanatical religious fundamentalism [causing a rise in] blatant militarism;” they named the U.S. (specifying “those who expect... the biblically prophesied global cataclysm”), Iran and Israel, calling these “frightening... dangerous ... a threat to world peace” although they are only “victims of fear.” Others are vexed by the organized activism of American fundamentalist Christians, particularly their influence in Congress; the rise of Islamic states (not mentioning domestic tyranny but only terrorism); and the rising numbers of self-assertive Jews, returning to Judaism and/or a national identity. In contrast, the overall political and social cooperation with the Plan appears to satisfy many. In 1976, right after the Plan went public, the ‘ascended masters’ gave orders to establish world centers in anticipation of the New World Order, according to Creme, with the goal of “gradual transformation of society without disorder and trauma.” They are located in New York, London, Geneva, Darjeeling and Tokyo. A nucleus of ‘world servers’ has also been trained to run these centers, and are stationed “in every country in the world, without exception.” International committees have been quietly working on multi-stage programs for implementing the New World Order; many of these have already recruited resources and personnel and need only the signal to become operational.

If the fulfillment of The Plan has been postponed repeatedly, when should the world expect Maitreya’s appearance? One of the most prominent New Age thinkers and organizers is Dr. Robert Mueller, former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations. In his book New Genesis he mentions his belief that Maitreya (with whom he claims to communicate) and The Plan will be ushered into the world in the year 2000. But how does he “know?” He, as well as Alice Bailey and many other New Agers, admit that they receive channeling from “the Tibetan,” a certain spirit called Djwhal Khan, the only “Master,” according to the “Masters’ Image Gallery” not to have his “photo” taken. Various other New Age authors or prophets, such as Spangler and Mueller, have also stated their belief in the year 2000 as the redemptive year of Maitreya. The sign is the New Age uniting peace symbol, just as various peace movements dating from the 1950’s have proposed. The year 2000 is very sacred to New Age thought. Various movements have come together in order to celebrate January 1 2000 as the Peace day. Various celebrities, world leaders (including among others Bill Clinton and the New Age propagandist Mikhail Gorbachev) and academics have united in building hopes for the year 2000, when New Agers expect their hopes for a New World Order to be fulfilled. A New Age organ published this Year 2000/Human Millennium poem/vision:

The beginning or the end

Some people fear that the new millennium will bring apocalyptic trials and tribulations. They fear the end of life as we know it could be at hand. That there will soon be a great change seems inevitable to many people. But will it be the end, or has history been leading us to a new and glorious beginning for humanity. Will we allow this self-fulfilling prophecy to sweep us away, or will we use this yearning for change as an opportunity to create a wonderful future of promise and hope, together.

Now is the time

This is the perfect time for the Peace On Earth Movement to awaken. It has always been here. It has been growing through the efforts of countless caring people along many narrow winding paths. All of these paths meet at THIS moment in time.

We can walk together into the Peace On Earth Millennium

If we proceed together, the road will be clearer for all of us to walk together into the new millennium filled with hope and promise. We have the chance to make the approaching century the beginning of the Peace On Earth Millennium. A new age that will be only the beginning of the wonders that will be achieved when each life is valued and lived with purpose...When each life is a life of wonder and fulfillment.

Community will be the focus of this new age of humanity

In the Peace On Earth Millennium, peace will be a central focus of our lives, and of the aims and goals of society. We will all feel and understand that humanity is a community. We will work together to build peace, and keep peace. We will strive together to encourage the human potential. We will seek together to solve all of the problems that face humanity and the earth that we share.

We are people for peace

Now is the time for all of us to join together, to walk together, to work together for peace. Now is the time for us to join the Peace On Earth movement, so that by standing up together, we show each other that we care about our world and our future. We can help make peace a focus of our lives, and a focus for our society, by joining together now as people for peace.

Peace 2000 celebrations are to begin January 1 2000, when New Age leaders expect the installation of The Plan. Some are even starting to implement that issue and train for the upcoming events. The Iceland based Peace 2000 Institute, directly in co-operation with Spangler and dr. Mueller, recently appealed to the world to give “peace” a chance during its airlift of presents to Iraqi children, with the help of the Icelandic Santa Claus. Its Icelandic founder and leader, Ástþór Magnússon,(photo: Clinton and Magnússon) a former Presidential Candidate and Gandhi Humanitarian Award Winner, appeared in Baghdad to refute the UN embargo on Iraq. Returning to his native Iceland, he barely had settled when he became engaged in media disputes with the Icelandic Lutheran church, due to their conflicting understanding of Jesus Christ’s message. And many others will or have raised their voices in support of World Peace 2000 and the usher in of the New Age Messiah, the chief agent of “Venus.”

“Christ is the same force as Lucifer but moving in seemingly the opposite direction. Lucifer moves in to create the light within through the pressure of experience. Christ moves to release that light, that wisdom, that love into creation... Lucifer, like Christ, stands at the door of man’s consciousness and knocks. If man says, ‘Go away because I do not like what you represent. I am afraid of you,’ Lucifer will play tricks on that fellow. If man says, ‘Come in, and I will give to you the treat of my love and understanding and I will uplift you in the light and presences of the Christ, my outflow,’ then Lucifer becomes something else again. He becomes the being who carries that great treat, the ultimate treat, the light of wisdom. [Lucifer] is the light giver. … He stands no longer as the tester or the tempter but as the great initiator, the one who hands the soul over to the Christ and from the Christ on into even greater realms. … Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into a New Age, which is the age of man’s wholeness, 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. … At some point each of us faces the presence of Lucifer. We either fear it when we come to grips with what we term ancient evil or the spirit of darkness, or we move throughit and realize that we are each of us light and dark. … When we do accept it, we can emerge into the radiance of our inner light, the light that can never be extinguished. … Lucifer comes to give to us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it then he is free and we are free. That is the Luciferic initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation in the New Age. … In the New Age consciousness there is not good and evil.” | David Spangler, Lorian Association, Reflections on the Christ, Findhorn Publications p. 40, 44-45, Interconnections

This is a good example of how God (YAHWEH) is in control of timing of end-time events. He made it clear in 2 Thessalonians 2 how the revealing of the antichrist is in the control of Him through the restrainer. I believe that this New Age Christ is the antichrist. So unless they understand Bible prophecy, they will not know the timing as well as God has led His people to understand it through the study of the Bible.

It is imperative that everyone have a personal relationship to Christ through understanding His ways of selfless love by the reading of His Word. He is coming again to gather His bride, all those that live by faith in Yeshua the Christ. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Fulfilled prophecy is the greatest faith-builder I know because it is the evidence of what we cannot see and is laid out in God’s Word. The precision of God’s Word over thousands of years to bring us exactly where He said we would be at His coming!

I urge you to get alone and quiet in prayer to Him. It’s just talking to Him as if He is right there, because if you ask Him to be, He will be. I would like you to find the peace that passes all understanding through a personal relationship with the Creator of the universe. That is the goal of shining the light of God’s Word on the dark deeds done in dark places to deceive you. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the One God of Truth, worship Him.


Kingdom Now / Heaven On Earth

Of the many Bible prophesies two opposing characters are described and how they arrive on the scene is just as opposite as their characters are. We are told of a man of sin, given power by the dragon, Lucifer, to deceive the whole world and be elevated to a position of ruler ship over the world. The other is no less than the Son of God, Yeshua, who is prophesied to be seen by every eye when He comes from heaven to gather His bride and then return later with her to destroy the man of sin and rule the earth for 1,000 years after the battle at Har Megiddo.

I say all this to both clarify that the True Messiah will come from heaven, not the earth, and that a deception will be involved with a man claiming to be the Messiah accepted by the world who comes from the world. While it is clear that much of New Age theology would lead one to accept the “Christ consciousness” within as a gateway belief to accepting another man with power as demonstrating the pinnacle of this belief, I also posit that the belief that we can create heaven on earth is a gateway belief to accepting a leader from the earth who demonstrates the power to make this reality apparent. Moreover, the goal of the kingdom of the man of sin will be to create an army of absolute followers, much like Nazi Germany, in which the world will act as a collective, directed by the head with undying loyalty.

This is, I believe, the merging of the New Age, New World Order, Apostasy and Bible Prophecy. And unfortunately there are many churches today who not only have a kingdom-now theology, but also disparage the one area of knowledge that would prepare and protect believers from the coming deception that is already upon us, the study of scripture as related to future events foretold to come to pass.

“It is time that the church woke up to its true mission, which is to materialize the kingdom of God on earth, today, here and now…. People are no longer interested in a possible heavenly state or a probable hell. They need to learn that the kingdom is here, and must express itself on earth … The way into that kingdom is the way that Christ trod. It involves the sacrifice of the personal self for the good of the world, and the service of humanity...” | Alice Bailey, Occultist

The following is an excerpt from a blog post by Roger Oakland:

Former New Age follower, Warren Smith explains what happened to him and how he came to understand the significance of Bible prophecy in light of Christ’s return:

“Coming out of New Age teachings, I had learned in a very personal way that the details of Jesus’ return are definitely our business. Understanding the events surrounding His return was critical to understanding how badly I had been deceived by my New Age teachings. I had learned from reading the Bible that there is a false Christ on the horizon and that for a number of years I had unknowingly been one of his followers. Because the Bible’s clear authoritative teachings about the real Jesus and His true return had been brought to my attention, I was able to see how deceived I was. By understanding that there is a false Christ trying to counterfeit the true Christ’s return, I was able to renounce the false Christ I had been following and commit my life to the true Jesus Christ.” | Warren Smith, from Deceived on Purpose, p. 147

In the Bible in the Book of Revelation, it says that Satan will deceive the whole world (Revelation 12:9). The emerging church movement has three essential elements that are consistent throughout the movement that may help this great deception to occur:

  1. The embracing of mysticism
  2. The belief that the kingdom of God will be established on earth BEFORE Christ returns.
  3. The rejection of eschatology (the study of the end-times and Bible prophecy relating to it).

The combination of these three things could help to bring about the great falling away of which the Bible speaks. We pray that every Bible-believing Christian will be able to comprehend these things and warn their families and loved ones.

2 Thessalonians 2:3
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.

1 Timothy 4:1
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.

This audio is from a Coast To Coast AM show with Ann Eller on December 12, 2009. In it she touches on several aspects of the New Age linked with “aliens” who let her in on the secret that the second coming of Christ is actually humanity discovering their inner “Christ consciousness.” Furthermore she touches on destruction that will be brought by “Planet X” and how we need to “look inside ourselves” for the answers. These are the same lies told in the Garden of Eden. Some scriptures below...

Genesis 3:1-6
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Jeremiah 17:7-9
Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
