New Age Religion!
Most of us have heard or seen information about the so called
"New" Age movement. This title covers a wide range of
ideas, thoughts, beliefs, activities, etc. Is there really
anything to this "new" awareness so many people are
flocking to? You need to know the truth because it can be quite
easy to be taken in by "events" related to this belief
system. I will state, however, that not everything considered a
part of the new age movement is bad. If you haven't listened
to "some" of the so-called "new age" music, you are missing some good, relaxing music.
You can also find some basic information about meditation, and other
psychological tools that CAN be helpful to those who use it.
In this article, I am referring to the practice of dealing
with "spiritual" elements, or focusing on having
"spiritual" experiences. THIS is where the danger lies
and as with everything that deals with false
spirituality, there are grains of truth mixed in with the lies.
In truth, there is nothing "NEW" about "New
Age Religion." This type of belief system stems back to
thousands of years before Christianity even existed. The use of
instruments such as rocks, gems, pendulums, Mediums and many other similar
"tools" has been with us for many thousands of years,
in one form or another. That shouldn't surprise you,
especially when you learn about the source of such things.
If you don't know anything about New Age Religion,
don't worry, you're better off. Understand, though, that
there is a VERY REAL POWER behind the "exciting" events
and results many people experience. Why else would so many people
be moving in that direction? Most people aren't stupid. They
won't get involved in something that isn't bringing at
least SOME measure of activity or success in their lives. But,
WHAT exactly is moving people in this direction?
The answer is, there's a missing element of KNOWLEDGE AND
POWER in people's lives. Not physical knowledge or physical
power, but of SPIRITUAL power. This spiritual deficiency is the
result of mankind's choice to go his own way. Just as sure as
you can have a mineral or vitamin deficiency by not getting
certain elements in your diet, you can have a spiritual
deficiency because you are not receiving a missing spiritual
ingredient in your life.
That missing element isn't something we can physically
measure DIRECTLY. We can only INDIRECTLY measure this deficiency.
The "symptoms" express themselves through how we, as
human beings, relate to each other, and how we act in this world.
Have you ever looked at some of the incredible evils in the world
and not wondered what in the world is wrong? We all have.
What's wrong is there is a serious world wide deficiency in
the RIGHT SPIRIT, that essence that comes from a power far
greater than ourselves.
The sad thing about this deficiency is that most people are
deceived by the many artificial substitutes which so many use to
try to fill this void. Everything from drugs, to sex, to a host
of physical pursuits, all the way over to witchcraft, ghosts,
"extraterrestrials," New Age Religion, and yes, even
traditional religious thought. Is that too hard to believe?
Revelation 12:9 "So the great dragon was cast out, that
serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the
whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were
cast out with him." (Emphasis mine throughout)
If you are serious about the truth, then you shouldn't be
afraid to look at EVERY source of supposed "knowledge"
to find answers. That includes the Bible. If you do a serious
study, you will find that many aspects of New Age
Religion are condemned in the Bible by the superbeing who calls
Himself God. WHY? Because He knew this spiritual deficiency would
exist and that certain other powers in the universe could easily
deceive mankind into believing and accepting other
"sources" that contradict the Bible and God
Remember, the mind of mankind is on the
same frequency as
this other power source, so it isn't surprising that so many
people can be lured into so many conflicting religions, ideas and
beliefs that exist today. Christianity itself is so divided on so
many aspects of the Bible that none of them can agree on much of
it. Nations kill each other in the name of the same God, or kill
others in the name of some other god. Does this make sense?
Ephesians 2:2 "... in which you once walked according to
the course of this world, according to the prince of the power
of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of
Can you see how well orchestrated this division is?
Look at the results over the past 6000 years of human history. Of
course, we are gaining in physical knowledge in leaps and bounds,
but the state of our world worsens by the month. That isn't
pessimism, this is observing reality. Ignoring it won't
change it or make it go away. As long as mankind looks to the
wrong "god," or the wrong "tool," or the
wrong "power," we will be open to greater deceptions,
which WILL UNDOUBTEDLY OCCUR IN OUR FUTURE. If you have any
belief in what the Bible says, you might like to check it out. It
is all quite plain.
Could Hollywood create a scenario for a science fiction story
like this one? THEY ALREADY HAVE MANY TIMES. Humanity, being
taken over and deceived by another race of beings, who have the
goal of destroying our civilization and world? How many science
fiction movies have you seen with that theme? I've seen
dozens. That is the main theme of MOST of them. We all LOVE
movies like that and flock to them when they open. Independence
Day? Invaders? Arrival? The list is quite long.
So WHY are we so interested in such themes, and so desirous
of anything involving "contact" with other
civilizations out in space? Could it be because we were created
to NEED this contact? Is it possible that our preoccupation with
forces greater than ourselves, whether true or deceptive, stems
from this spiritual deficiency? Why is it so easy to accept the
idea of other beings out in space, UFO's, "First
Contact," alien crash sites, ghosts, Channeling through "other dimensional
creatures," yet we recoil and resist any aspect of God and
religion and truth being the core of such drives?
Remember this: A person who is deceived, doesn't KNOW
they are deceived. If they DID know, they, of course,
wouldn't really be deceived. Deception is defined by Webster
this way. "To cause to believe an untruth." That means
any one of us could have a set of beliefs that we are willing to
die for, and yet actually be deceived about that belief. The
belief could be so real, so personal that we have no
doubts about its "truthfulness."
How can such a state of deception occur in so many people?
One BIG answer is that we have not collectively accepted a common
code of conduct. We have no established pattern for modeling our
behavior as a race. When this is the reality, it is IMPOSSIBLE TO
HAVE UNITY, PEACE AND SIMILAR GOALS. When no one accepts a common
code, all that is left is to do what seems right in each of our
own minds. Since we are all individuals, how many directions do
you think there could be to move in?
If you were an enemy of a nation, and saw that they accepted
no standard for conduct or direction in life, what would be the
best way to conquer them? Do you think you would have to send in
mighty armies with millions of soldiers to conquer them. NO! All
you would have to do is introduce as many ideas and concepts that
are intellectual appealing, yet false, which would further divide
them into conflicting groups, and simply allow them to destroy
themselves. NO FORCE, NO WAR. Just a little time and some subtle
Do you think New Age Religion ISN'T intellectually
appealing? Being told that you are a "spiritual" being
and that you have so much more to look forward to and to
experience? Getting involved in "knowledge" that is
supposedly "secret" and "hidden," and that
you NEED these "helpers" to get you to the better
"plain" of existence? Opening yourself up to contact by
one of these "helpers?" Sounds exciting. Sounds
appealing and motivating. Well, if you have a spiritual
deficiency, and don't understand any of it, don't you
think you could be deceived by substitutes that masquerade as
2 Cor 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers
of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
transformed = NT:3345 metaschematizo (met-askh-ay-mat-id'-zo); from NT:3326 and a derivative of NT:4976; to transfigure or disguise; figuratively, to apply (by accommodation): KJV - transfer, transform (self).
These beings who are enemies of God and man disguise themselves as helpers of mankind. They attempt to deceive mankind into believing lies and that they are here to help humanity. This is a great deception.
No one likes the idea that what they believe could be wrong.
That is why it is so easy to keep people deceived. They don't
bother to prove anything by any standard. They resist changing
and are even willing to fight to defend what is untrue, simply
because THEY believe it to be true. Why examine anything that you
already "know" to be true? What better army could you
have then a group of people who believe something you are trying
to sell, and who refuse to examine that belief or concept for
truthfulness? You have an army of blind slaves who will continue
to be "used" for your purpose.
The last thing you would want is for anyone to begin
questioning the belief, or worse yet, trying to prove it true or
false. If you think you are dealing with a simple human mind,
with all of its limitations, you are seriously underestimating
the enemy. The mind that is responsible for the world's evils
and confusion is actually a genius, a pathological criminal and
evil mind that has all the bases covered when it comes to how he
is influencing mankind's direction. Whether you look at our
social, religious, educational, medical, political
or environmental systems, unless you are ignoring the facts, you
can't help but realize that something is seriously wrong with
This being, known as Satan, isn't stupid enough to
sabotage our systems so much that we destroy ourselves quickly.
Because we have minds and can think, we would easily see such a
threat. However, slowly manipulate things, allow just enough
truth to make it believable, but enough lie and deception to
destroy, and you have the perfect time bomb that can't fail.
It does just enough damage to continually thwart mankind's
success, spiritually speaking, but doesn't do so much that we
all stop and take stock of reality. Satan's goal is the total
destruction of mankind and this earth. He has targeted EVERY area
mankind is involved with in life.
There is a prophecy in Matthew 24:22 that reads:
"And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be
saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be
This is talking about the end time tribulation described in
the Bible. When you understand the entire plan, you will begin to
see what the Bible says is true. God specifically warns us that
there will be great signs and wonders done by some on this earth
that will convince the world that they are true
"prophets" of the true God. After all, who isn't
convinced by what they "see, hear and experience?"
2 Thessalonians 2:9 "The coming of the [lawless one] is
according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and
Matthew 24:24 "For false christs and false prophets will
rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible,
even the elect."
This great deception will culminate in the worst evil and
horrors this world has ever seen...
Matthew 24:21 "For then there will be great tribulation,
such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this
time, no, nor ever shall be."
All this will be done in the name of "God." People will be
so deceived by all that has led up to these events, and by the
"miracles," that they will be convinced, when the true
Christ returns to this planet, that we are being invaded from "outer
space" to be "conquered" and
destroyed. Remember all the movies with that theme? This is conditioning
us to expect this when we see signs in the heavens. The nations will
literally congregate to fight
the true Christ when He comes believing HIM to be an invader from space
because He will be coming in the clouds of heaven with signs in the heavens...
just like the movie, Independence Day, and the space ships. Talk about deception.
Revelation 19:19 "And I saw the beast, the kings of the
earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against
Him who sat on the horse and against His army."
Remember, just because things go "bump in the
night," or someone can get things to "do things,"
doesn't mean you are dealing with the right side. Remember
Star Wars and "The Force?" Remember the "Dark Side
of the Force?" Well, there is some truth to this, although
the power of the "Dark Side" is nothing compared to the
"good" side. Satan is a created being and it is
impossible for him to be anywhere close to the power of the
creator. He thinks he can win, yet also knows he has only a
limited amount of time to try his plan. That shows you how insane
this mind really is.
Unless you prepare yourself for what is coming on this earth
in the way of lies and deceits, you won't escape the
deception and will be caught up in the middle of it. It will take
a close contact with the true God and the true power of the
universe to rise above what will overtake most of humanity, all
in the name of truth and religion. How ready are YOU?
If you are involved with New Age religion, it would serve you
well to re-think your position in light of this information.
There is naturally some very good things about the New Age
movement. Remember that there is always good mixed in with lies
and deception. That's why it works so well. Nice package
around what is trying to be sold. However, the danger is in
swallowing the garbage along with the good.
If you want exciting things to happen, hope to contact some
"beings" existing elsewhere, or other such
"intellectually romantic notions," you can be sure you
will probable get what you want. You are simply opening yourself
up to forces that would otherwise not be able to reach that level
of "contact" with you. These powers are very real and
VERY DANGEROUS, especially when you invite them in. They have one
goal, no matter how much they may seemingly "help."
2 Corinthians 11:14-15 "And no wonder! For Satan
himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15
Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also
transform themselves into ministers of
You see, if you allow the plain facts and truth to speak to
you, you can escape from the web of deceit that permeates the
whole world. There are two plans taking place on this earth, to
be sure. One is good, one is evil. You have a choice to decide
your whether to study this out or not. You had better have the
truth and facts in order to make the right decision.
