These authors received the content for their books by channeling the information directly from guides from the spirit world. These various spirit guides, such as "The Nine" are, of course, demonic entities. Many of these New Age authors had the same guide during their entire lives. The guide would take over the author's body (possession) and give the teachings for the books, in many cases through 'automatic writing,' a common method used in channeling.
One of the original and most infamous of New Age theosophical teachers was Helena Blavatsky. She wrote many books and articles. Her seminal work was called The Secret Doctrine, and while the ideas and philosophies of theosophy go back to the Garden of Eden, she is widely recognized as the originator of the modern school of New Age beliefs. While I didn't want to wade through her material to provide direct quotes here, I have read much of her work.
Blavatsky makes it clear that when the New Age religion has saturated the world there will one group, the separatists, who will not 'evolve' into the higher consciousness of the religion. They will be unwilling to give up their old religion and beliefs. That will be a problem. Therefore, she states that these uncooperative, unevolved individuals will need to be removed from the earth. Her wording makes it clear that they will not be killed, but will be 'taken off the planet.' This was written over 100 years ago. Sounds a lot like the Rapture to me.
Recently, with all the Mayan information about 2012, I discovered there are at least three known codex tablets in western museums which have statements relative to the Long Count Calendar end date. One includes a reference to "the great harvest of souls" that will occur at the time of the 'end of cycles.'
There are Mayan historical figures of some gravitas who have made statements about 2012. One of the more important of these is the personality whose title and name is translated as "Lord Pakal Ahau." His legacy provides a substantial amount of information in the run-up to 2012. Here is one quote:
"End of Long Count is Eternity, Brother.
This is the end of that line.
No one can return.
Then is forever."
One section is interpreted as follows: "...Finishing action begins with solar activity. A huge harvest of souls happens in all of an instant..."
One of the popular Antichrists, Lord Maitreya, says that those who remain 'separate' by denying the divinity in themselves and others "will be driven from the planet. The crime of separation must be driven from this world."
The New Age religion teaches that separatist thoughts about sin, Satan or Armageddon will not be tolerated, but only thoughts of God, love and peace. Because thoughts of separation threaten the health and the peace of the body, a system is devised to visibly mark those who recognize their oneness with God. Those who do not submit to the process ultimately reveal themselves as separatists. Self-centered and separatist members of the "one body" who choose not to participate in the transformational peace process will be judged and removed from the corporate body by the "selection process." They are removed for the good of all.
Marilyn Ferguson, author of 'the bible' of the New Age religion, The Aquarian Conspiracy, written in the 1980s, says the same thing, that separatists will be 'removed from the planet.' This idea runs through all of the writings of the New Age philosophers.
It sounds to me that Satan's demonic spirit world is mentally preparing people to expect, and accept, the idea that a certain group of 'hard core Christians' are going to disappear from planet earth.
Before wrapping up this post, let me give you a little description of just one of the deceptions that is planned in conjunction with the arrival of the Antichrist: "... a powerful, supernatural 'pentecostal' experience will persuade even the 'fundamentalist Christians' to believe in this Christ."
Benjamin Creme says: "...everyone - even the fundamentalists - will know, through the overshadowing of the minds of all humanity - a pentecostal experience for all. One day soon, men and women all over the world will gather round their radio and television sets to hear and see the Christ: to see His face, and to hear His words dropping silently into their minds - in their own language. In this way they will know that He is truly the Christ, the World Teacher; and in this way too, we will see repeated, only now on a world scale, the happenings of Pentecost; and in celebration of this event Pentecost will become a major festival of the New World Religion."
If the 'forerunner,' Benjamin Creme is accurate, Satan not only plans a false Christ, but is planning a counterfeit version of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and his own Day of Pentecost. I don't think most people comprehend the scope and magnitude of what we have in store for us. No wonder Jesus Christ asked whether there would be any faith on earth at all when He came again.
Matthew 24:24: "For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible."
2 Thess. 2:9-12: "The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness."
The only way to protect yourself is on your knees ... and in God's Word.
