One can view our world and its history...as a crazy quilt of happenstance -- of unplanned, unrelated events. Or we can see in all of this a pattern, a slow moving forward of human history towards a goal, a climactic event... Changes that affect an entire society never happen overnight, although it may seem that way to many people... Over a period of many decades, the foundation has been laid, one stone at a time, for a deception in the minds of men that would engulf not only this nation, but the entire world. (p. 11-12)
We are told in the Bible that there is a being capable of such an undertaking. His name is Lucifer... He was a member of God's highest order of created beings, an angelic prince, and his name means "light-bearer". Isaiah 14:12-15 and Ezekiel 28:11-19 tell us much about his character and of God's judgement upon him. When he was cast out from the mountain of God, he lost his high and holy position before "the Ancient of Days"; but he lost none of his incredible, supernatural intelligence and power...
There are two [deceptions] that serve his purpose... The first is to cast doubt on God's Word, to twist and change it to mean something entirely different from what God originally intended... The second tactic is to convince us that we have the right, the ability, and the power within us to become like God. Lucifer knows very well that this is no more possible for us than it was for him... (p. 13)
Very few people perceive the fact that human history has been a battleground. The battle is being waged by Satan and his legions against our Creator; and the prize is our souls, and the decision in the heart of each person as to whom he will give his loyalty and worship... Satan has successfully elicited devotion to himself through the ages by introducing, through human vessels, a variety of false religions, cults and outright Satan worship... (p. 14)
In the 1820s, the seeds of a new religion began to grow into what is today known as Mormonism. One of the beliefs of the Mormon Church, as found in their book "Pearl of Great Price", states that "Jesus was the spirit brother of Lucifer before he entered the world." [see note E1].
Spiritism...became an organized religion in 1848. In our generation it has gained acceptance among many of the world's elite...
[In the 1860s], Mary Baker Eddy began to teach her ideas on Christian Science. Followers of this religion now believe that it is impossible to understand the Bible apart from Mrs. Eddy's teachings as found in her book, "Key to the Scriptures".
Jehovah's Witnesses came into being in 1879. This new religion denied the doctrine of the Trinity and the divinity of Jesus Christ, and printed its own translation of the Bible called "The New World Translation". Key passages in this translation have been changed to fit their teachings.
The Unity Church was organized in 1886 under the leadership of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore. Of the "new" religions that had their origins in the nineteenth century, the Unity Church, along with Theosophy, is probably the most representative of New Age thinking.
In studying the teachings of any new religion or cult, it is always wise to take a close look at the founder of that religion... [Madame Blavatsky] has been described by her various biographers:
"She was one of the most evil and immoral women who ever lived...with personal duplicity and profound contempt for humanity." 
From an early age, she demonstrated the abilities of a medium and, while in a trance, frequently saw the majestic figure of a Hindu in a white turban. She called him her protector and believed that he saved her from danger on many occasions. She later described an alleged face-to-face meeting with that same "master" in England at the age of twenty, when he instructed her to leave for India to organize the Theosophical Society. (p. 18)
She acquired the name Blavatsky at the age of seventeen when she married an elderly general... The marriage lasted three months at which time Helena deserted him and ran away to begin a life of world travel in service to "her master". Of all this she stated:
"I wouldn't be a slave to God Himself, let alone any man... Woman finds her happiness in the acquisition of supernatural powers. Love is but a vile dream, a nightmare." 
Many of her beliefs can be found in two thick volumes entitled "Isis Unveiled" and her main work, "The Secret Doctrine". This material was allegedly [channeled] to her through her "masters" who were called by the various names of Koot Hoomi, Morya, and simply, "The Ascended Masters of Wisdom". These "masters" were, she believed, more highly evolved souls who, after going through numerous reincarnations, had left the earth plane and were now guiding mankind. (p. 19)
The names of these so-called ascended masters, or spirit guides, are often as well known as the authors themselves. "Seth", for example, writes through Jan Roberts, and the popular Ruth Montgomery books are supposedly written by her many "guides". Of course their message is always a "cosmic gospel" that is opposed to orthodox Christianity. If we look at what the "masters" have taught the world through Theosophy, we find that they have..."borrowed unblushingly from Buddhism". (p. 20)
"God and man are the two phases of the one eternal life and consciousness that constitutes our universe!... This conception makes man a part of God, having potentially within him all the attributes and powers of the supreme being... It is the concept that nothing exists except God and that humanity is one portion of Him.... It is the unqualified assertion that humanity is a part of God as leaves are part of a tree... Humanity is a growth, a development, an emanation, an evolutionary expression of the Supreme Being." 
The New Age movement of today strangely believes in the religion "of Jesus, not about Jesus". New Agers believe that we can all attain the "Christ consciousness", becoming gods ourselves. This is not surprising. Since they want no personal God to whom they are accountable, occultists would hardly want to listen to the words of the Apostle Paul... (p. 23)
Madame Blavatsky goes on to say:
"Thus we may infer that the only difference between modern Christianity and the old heathen faiths is a belief of the former in a personal devil and in hell" 
Lucifer would like nothing better than to convince mankind that he does not exist, thus leaving him a free hand to go about his work of deception and destruction. But Jesus said, in words that cannot be twisted:
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it." -- John 8:44
It is obvious that Helena Blavatsky believed the "father of lies" and helped to spread his false light when we look at her statements in "The Secret Doctrine", her most significant work...
"Better be man, the crown of terrestrial production and king over its opus operatum, than be lost among the will-less Spritual Hosts in Heaven...
Satan is that Angel who was proud enough to believe himself God; brave enough to buy his independence at the price of eternal suffering and torture; beautiful enough to have adored himself in full divine light; strong enough to still reign in darkness among agony, and to have made himself a throne out of this inextinguishable pyre...the Prince of Anarchy, served by a heirarchy of pure spirits." 
She sums up her ideas on the devil as a redeemer by saying: (p. 24)
"And now it stands proven that Satan, or Fiery Dragon, the "Lord of Phosphorus"...and Lucifer, or "Light-Bearer" is in us; it is our Mind, our Tempter, our Redeemer, our Intelligent Liberator and Saviour from pure animalism." 
Another well known follower of Madame Blavatsky was Adolf Hitler. He was known to have kept a copy of "The Secret Doctrine" at his bedside. The margins were full of comments and notes in his own handwriting. Joseph Carr, in his book "The Twisted Cross, makes the following insightful observation:
The foundations of both Nazi and New Age movement philosophy are in the occultic doctrines that were made popular in the late nineteenth century by the Theosophical movement. Both Naziism and the New Age movement depend heavily upon the teachings of Helena P. Blavatsky ("The Secret Doctrine" and "Isis Unveiled").
From theosophists, Hitler derived his genesis theories and the notion of a controlling hierarchy of initiates. Both the theosophists of the time and the Nazis believed that mankind was guided by superior beings, Ubermenschen (supermen), who live in remote areas of the world, such as the Gobi Deserst and the Himalayan nation of Tibet. There was a substantial Tibetan and Chinese community in Berlin because of the occultic interests of German society, and Hitler augmented them with new emigres after he came to power. By 1941, there were more than one thousand Tibetans living in Berlin. 
God gives us some clues...as to how a human spirit can become so twisted and deceived: (p. 26)
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him no as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, the became fools... And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. -- Romans 1:21-22, 28
[After Blavatsky's death,] The next in line for a short time was Dr. Annie Besant... The "Dictionary of Mysticism and the Occult" describes her as:
...an English theosophist and social reformer who became president of the Theosophical Society in 1891...Dr. Besant was a leader in the Co-Masonic movement and a prolific author. 
There were plans to bring forth her adopted son Krishnamurti, an Indian mystic, as the Messianic Leader and Reincarnation of the World Teacher; however, he declined the honor. Shortly after that, the earthly leadership to further Lucifer's plans (via Theosophy, at least) was transferred to Alice Ann Bailey, the new president of the Theosophical Society. (p. 27)
Of the two people focused on in this chapter, the work of Alice Bailey in probably the most important in laying the foundation of the New Age movement. By the time she had finished her work in 1949, she had established Lucis Trust, World Goodwill (to which I have already linked the leadership of the World Constitution and Parliament Association ), Triangles, the Arcane School, and the New Group of World Servers; she had written twenty-four books...most of which were allegedly written through her by her spirit guide, the Tibetan, Djwhal Khul... (p. 28)
Lucis Trust, an organization which Bailey originally founded in the 1920s under the name Lucifer Publishing Company, today boasts a membership of approximately six thousand people. Some of the world's most renowned financial and political leaders have belonged to this organization; including individuals such as Robert McNamara, Donald Regan, Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, Paul Volcker, and George Shultz. This is the same group of people that runs the Council on Foreign Relations, the organization responsible for founding the United Nations. It is interesting to note that Lucis Trust was headquartered at United Nations Plaza until recently.
Alice began a metamorphosis which transformed her into a master teacher of the occult and one of the most receptive channels of demonic influence the world had yet known. Of this period, she states: (p. 30)
I sat up in bed reading "The Secret Doctrine" at night and began to neglect reading my Bible... I discovered, first of all, that there is a great and divine Plan... I discovered, for the second thing, that there are Those Who are responsible for the working out of the Plan and Who, step by step and stage by stage, have led mankind on down the centuries... I learned that when I, in my orthodox days, talked about Christ and His Church I was really speaking of Christ and the planetary Hierarchy. 
In their own words,
The spiritual Hierarchy of the earth is the aggregate of those of humanity who have triumphed over matter, who have achieved the goal of self-mastery... They are no longer centered in the individual consciousness but have entered into the wider realization of the planetary group life... They work according to plan and are known as "The Custodians of the Plan".
The senior members of the Hierarchy are the Masters of Wisdom. A Master of Wisdom is one who has through self-mastery achieved mastery over the whole field of human evolution... [T]hey each have a special contribution to make towards human progress in one of the seven major fields of world work: political, religious, educational, scientific, philosophical, psychological or economic. 
Some occultists believe that these creatures physically walk the earth (or have possessed those who can) and are concentrated in the region of the Himalayas... Others believe that these "more highly evolved beings" exist only on a spiritual plane, being accessible only through occult meditation... It is understood that these beings are able to communicate telepathically with those individuals who open themselves up and become receptive to their "enlightened teachings". (p. 33)
The most advanced occultists, such as Blavatsky and Bailey, I believe at some point came to understand that these beings were demonic spirits, serving Lucifer. There are too many Luciferic references in their writings for anything else to have been the case... They lead people away from God's truth by causing them to accept the false hope that "they too can overcome death and be as gods" [see Genesis 3:4-5]
It would only stand to reason that Satan's angels, being spiritual entities with superior intelligence, would know where we are most vulnerable for deception and would approach us in whatever form is most acceptable to us -- if a person repeatedly opens himself up to the occult realm via altered states or occult meditation. (p. 35)
It is no coincidence that books on extraterrestrials and angels (fallen angels) are typically found in the New Age / Occult section of bookstores. In fact, angels seem to be the latest craze... Some of the current best selling books on angels, from a New Age perspective include: "Your Guardian Angels" by Linda Georgian from the Psychic Friends Network, and "The Angels Within Us" by John Randolph Price. Another book, "Mary's Message to the World" by Annie Kirkwood, supposedly conveys Mother Mary's enlightened wisdom for humanity. (p. 36)
Christ (which "the Hierarchy" considers to be an office or a position which can be attained, not the person of Jesus) is supposedly one these ascended masters, but so is Buddha, and somehow in their scheme of things Buddha is always a little superior. They tell us that Christ came to show us the love of God, but Buddha came to bring us enlightenment. They go out of their way to let us know that the Bible has been misinterpreted and the true meaning lost through the centuries. But somehow, this has never happened to the sacred scriptures of the East, so they can be trusted.
They tell us that the teaching, planned by the Hierarchy to precede and condition the world for the New Age, also known as the Aquarian Age or the New World Order, falls into three categories: (p. 37)
Atlantis was supposedly the most occult society ever to exist and was destroyed by the Great Flood. According to occult legend, Atlantis existed at the helm of a world government based on ten geopolitical regions and containing elements of democracy. However, because of the rampant and universal involvement of humans in the occult, demonic spirit beings had been invoked to the point where they were apparently enabled (or empowered) to physically manifest themselves and even to have sexual relations with women, producing a part human / part supernatural offspring... Genesis 6:4 states:
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. -- Genesis 6:4
The biblical reference here to "sons of God" clearly has a negative connotation and is actually referring to those angels who had rebelled against God. We know they were demonic beings, as their appearance is the last thing recorded in the Bible prior to God sending the Flood... (p. 41)
Yet during our generation there has been an incredible resurgence of occult activity, and people are once again invoking "spirits" in massive numbers... Concerning the time immediately preceding his return to put an end to this evil, Jesus said: "As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man" (Matthew 24:37, NIV)
In spite of all the clear warnings of Scripture, occult leaders are intent on returning the world to this "enlightened state". Masonic leaders of the past, such as Manly P. Hall and Albert Pike had much to say about Atlantis, the Flood, and the resurrection of occult activity after the Flood during the time of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel. Pike referred to Freemasonry as the "custodian" or special guardian of these occult secrets and revealed the hidden agenda of his institution -- the forming of a Luciferian one-world government. Alice Bailey, interestingly enough, like Blavatsky and Besant was a well-known female Masonic leader of her day. [see note E2]
A publication of Lucis Trust describes the progress of "the Hierarchy" very well: (p. 43)
Hierarchical work is so quietly and smoothly developed, and so efficiently expressive of expanding human consciousness, that when it is well advanced it appears quite natural and reasonable. In the early stages, however, it is generally considered radical and even revolutionary and often meets determined opposition... The Masters work slowly and with deliberation, free from any sense of speed, toward their objective... There are periods of major opportunity of which the Hierarchy takes advantage and this present period is one of major opportunity.
The Tibetan, Djwahl Khul tells us a little more about himself...in the book "The Externalization of the Hierarchy":
"Members of the Hierarchy do not as a rule intermingle largely with the public or walk the streets of our great cities. They work as I do from my retreat in the Himalayas... I reach this vast number of human beings through the books which I have written, through the groups which I have started and impulsed, such as World Goodwill and the Triangles, and through my disciples who talk and spread the truth as I have sought to present it." 
In her book, "The Unfinished Autobiography" (p. 259), her husband Foster Bailey explains how this was done:
"Mrs. Bailey gets in touch with the Tibetan... he communicates with her telepathically. The information is given with very great rapidity and the detail teaching is impressed upon her consciousness with such clarity that she is enabled to write it down, so that no word is changed."
There are four pillars upon which the New Age movement stands, and the writings of The Tibetan through Alice Bailey reinforce all four. These pillars are: evolution, reincarnation, astrology and Eastern forms of meditation... Remember that all this was written before 1949. Yet it seems that everything which was promoted in these books has completely permeated the culture of our day, in this country as well as throughout the rest of the world. (p. 46).
One of the organizations established by Alice Bailey to promote the "science of meditation" is called Triangles. A triangle is a group of three people who link each day in thought for a few minutes of "creative meditation". Many of these triangles involve people in more than one country. During the time of this "linkage", they believe that they are invoking the energies of Light and goodwill. They visualize these energies as circulating through the three focal points of each triangle, and pouring out through the network of triangles surrounding the planet. At this time, they repeat the "Great Invocation" which we will discuss a little later. (p. 47)
In a paper put out by Lucis Trust, they make this statement about the concept of Triangles:
Men have the power, through focussed united invocation, to affect world events. The massed thought power of men and women of goodwill can create a channel of communication between God and man through which spiritual energies can flow to heal and rebuild a troubled world. It is this power, properly used and directed, that can be humanity's "saving force". 
To the New Age mind, God is the sum of all creation, thus he is the energy that flows through all things. The Tibetan explains it very well:
The esotericist of today is a practical worker. His illuminized consciousness makes available to him a source of energy supply which is inexhaustible and which originates within the circulating energy of the One Life. He thus becomes a center of energy transmission between Hierarchy and humanity... Spiritual impression has been interrupted and there has been interference with the divine circulatory flow. It is the task of disciples of the world to restore this flow and to stop this interference. 
Lucis Trust which was established in 1922 by Alice Bailey and her husband, Foster Bailey, exists to further the work that the Baileys were doing to promote the Plan of the Hierarchy. Today it is still very much in operation... They distribute volumes of material and run a flourishing correspondence school to educate disciples in the esoteric teachings of the Masters, including their ideas on meditation, energy, and how to invoke the appearance of "The Christ" and his accompanying New World Order. (p. 50)
"The Great Invocation", given to Alice Bailey by the Tibetan as an invocatory prayer to the Hierarchy, is one of the most widely publicized activities of Lucis Trust. It has appeared as an advertisement in Reader's Digest and is included as a special insert in all of the Bailey books. The following is the most often used section of this invocation:
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth. 
This well-publicized section was given to Alice in 1945. A lesser-known section, given in 1940, is most revealing. Part of this section states:
Come forth, O Mighty One.
The hour of service of the Saving Force has now arrived.
Let it be spread abroad, O Mighty One.
Let Light and Love and Power and Death
Fulfill the purpose of the Coming One.
The "Mighty One" or "the Christ" mentioned here by Bailey is in reality a reference to the future appearance of the anti-Christ...an event described in [various] passages of Scripture... He will briefly rule the world during a period known in the Bible as "The Great Tribulation", a three-and-one-half year time span immediately preceeding the true physical return, or second coming, of Jesus Christ at the end of this age... (p. 51)
In another publication of Lucis Trust, in a section entitled "Deeper Meaning of the Great Invocation", disciples are told:
The Great Invocation, if given widespread distribution, can be to the new world religion what the Lord's Prayer has been to Christianity. First, the general public will regard it as a prayer to God Transcendent. They will not recognize Him yet as imminent in His creation.
Secondly, esotericists, aspirants and spiritually-minded people will have a deeper and more understanding approach. To them it will convey the recognition of the world of causes and of Those Who stand subjectively behind world affairs, the spiritual Directors of our life...
With this fundamental attitude, the necessity for a widespread expression of these underlying facts will be apparent and an era of spiritual propaganda, engineered by disciples and carried forward by esotericists, will mature. 
They tell us that when this plan is fulfilled, it will strike a death blow to evil, selfishness and separateness, sealing it into the tomb of death forever. Of couse "separateness" refers to those who refuse to become a part of this new world religion. (p. 52)
As we have seen from the beginning, the ultimate goal of the New Age movement is a one world government, a one world economic system, and a one world religion. All three are closely intertwined... A booklet entitled "International Unity" from Lucis Trust gives us a clear picture of their position:
It can be said that to the spiritual leaders of the race, certain lines of action seem right and guarantee constructive attitudes. The United Nations, through the General Assembly, specialized agencies, and its various councils, commissions and committees, must be supported; there is, as yet, no other organization to which man can hopefully look...
The world's economic councils must set the resources of the earth free for the use of humanity... How can there be a fair distribution of the world's resources? How can true religion be resurrected and the ways of true spiritual living govern the hearts of men?...
Steadily and regularly the public should be taught an internationalism and a world unity which is based on simple goodwill and on cooperative interdependence. 
The admiration and endorsement of the United Nations by Lucis Trust is part of a "mutual admiration society". Robert Muller, assistant Secretary General of the United Nations from 1948 to 1984, is a devoted student of the works of Alice Bailey. He has established a school for the study of her teachings in Arlington Texas. The School of Ageless Wisdom, as it is officially known, makes this statement: (p. 56)
"When some part of Universal Truth has been truly grasped, the Source is recognized to be beyond any scriptural authority"
There is a well known painting of Jesus standing outside the United Nations building in New York City. He is seeking entrance, but receives no response -- and never will. This organization, along with supporters like Lucis Trust, will bow to no God except the divinity of man himself, as taught by Lucifer...
Alice Bailey's devious character is strongly reflected in her pronounced, but cleverly rationalized, anti-Jewish and anti-Christian statements, which permeate her writings. She justifies the atrocities of the two world wars, including the Holocaust in all its horror, as necessary developments in preparing the way for the coming New Age...
The deceptive nature of her false teachings would be clear to any student who is firmly grounded in the Bible. However, her statements often contain certain grains of truth, which only add to the subtlety of her message, thereby leading many astray... I would like to close this chapter by allowing her words, as allegedly received from the Tibetan Master, to speak for themselves... Many of the following quotes contain references to "the Christ"... Bailey considered the title of "Christ" to be something that could be earned. According to her beliefs, humans are simply gods in the making, and we can all attain "Christ consciousness"...
However, according to Bailey, "the Christ" also has a second, more esoteric meaning, which she reveals on page 558 of "The Externalization of the Hierarchy":
The Tibetan has asked me [Alice Bailey] to make clear that when he is speaking of "the Christ" he is referring to His official name as Head of the Hierarchy. The Christ works for all men, irrespective of their faith; He does not belong to the Christian world any more than to the Buddhist, the Mohammedan or any other faith.
There is no need for any man to join the Christian Church in order to be affiliated with Christ. The requirements are to love your fellowmen, lead a disciplined life, recognise the divinity in all faiths and all beings, and rule your daily life with Love. A.A.B.
I believe that Bailey's use of "the Christ" in this context is simply a disguised reference to what, according to Scripture, would be termed "the anti-Christ". See 1 John 2:18-23. It is a further example of how Bailey and the Tibetan have inverted the truth.
The Jew, with his emphasis upon his position as one of the "chosen people" has stood symbolically throughout the centuries as the representative of the wandering, incarnating soul, but the Jewish people have never recognized the symbolic mission with which their race was entrusted, and they have taken to themselves the glory and the honour of the Lord's elect. The Jew made this mistake and, as an Oriental race, the Jews have failed to hold before the Orient the divine nature of mankind as a whole, for all are equally divine and all are the Lord's elect.
-- "The Destiny of Nations", 1939, pp. 34-35
It may interest you to know that the Christ has not yet decided what type of physical vehicle He will employ should He take physical and work definitely upon the physical plane. He waits to see what nation or group of nations do the most work in preparation for His reappearence. He will not, however, take a Jewish body as He did before, for the Jews have forfeited that Privilege. The Messiah for whom they wait will be one of Christ's senior disciples, but it will not be, as originally intended, the Christ.
Symbolically, the Jews represent (from the point of view of the Hierarchy) that from which all Masters of the Wisdom and Lords of Compassion emerge: materialism, cruelty and a spiritual conservatism, so that today they live in Old Testament times and are under the domination of the separative, selfish, lower concrete mind.
But their opportunity will come again, and they may change all this when the fires of suffering at last succeed in purifying them and burning away their ancient crystallization, thus liberating them to the extent that they can recognize their Messiah. Who will not, however, be the world Messiah. The Jews need humility more than any other nation. By humility they may learn something of value.
-- "The Rays and the Initiations", 1960 edition, pp. 705-706
There are certain areas of evil in the world today through which these forces of darkness can reach humanity. What they are and where they are I do not intend to say. I would point out, however, that Palestine should no longer be called the Holy Land; its sacred places are only the passing relics of three dead and gone religions. The spirit has gone out of the old faiths and the true spiritual light is transferring itself into a new form which will manifest on earth eventually as the new world religion...
Judaism is old, obsolete and separative and has no true message for the spiritually-minded which cannot be better given by the newer faiths...
The Christian faith has also served its purpose; its Founder seeks to bring a new Gospel and a new message that will enlighten all men everywhere. Therefore, Jerusalem stands for nothing of importance today, except for that which has passed away and should pass away. The "Holy Land" is no longer holy, but is desecrated by selfish interests, and by a basically separative and conquering nation.
-- "The Rays and the Initiations", 1943-47, p. 754
The tension in the world today, particularly in the Hierarchy, is such that it will produce another and perhaps ultimate world crisis, or else such a speeding up of the spiritual life of the planet that the coming in of the long looked-for New Age conditions will be amazingly hastened...
The area of difficulty -- as is well known -- is the Near East and Palestine. The Jews, by their illegal and terroristic activities, have laid a foundation of great difficulty for those who are seeking to promote world peace...the Jews have partially again opened the door to the Forces of Evil... Palestine is no longer a Holy Land and should not be so regarded...
It is the Zionists who have defied the United Nations, lowered its prestige and made its position both negative and negligible to the world. It is the Zionists who have perpetrated the major act of aggression since the formation of the United Nations, and who were clever enough to gain the endorsement of the United Nations, turning the original 'recommendation' of the United Nations into an order.
The rule of force, of aggression and of territorial conquest by force of arms is demonstrated today by the Zionists in Palestine, as well as the demonstration of the power of money to purchase governments. These activities run counter to all the plans of the spiritual Hierarchy and make a point of trimuph of the forces of evil.
-- "The Rays and the Initiations", 1947, PP. 428-30, 634-36
The Forces of Darkness are powerful energies, working to preserve that which is ancient and material...they work to prevent the understanding of that which is of the New Age; they endeavor to preserve that which is familiar and old, to counteract the effects of the coming culture and civilisation, to bring blindness to the peoples and feed steadily the existing fires of hate, of separateness, of criticism and of cruelty...
Our earth humanity and the group of human beings who are far more ancient in the origin than we are, will form one humanity and then there will be peace on earth...
The solution will come...when the races regard the Jewish problem as a humanitarian problem... He [the Jew] must let go of his own separative tendencies and of his deep sense of persecution... He will do this latter with great facility, when he grasps, as a race, the significance and inevitability of the Law of Karma, and...realises that the law is working out and incidentally releasing him for a greater future.
-- "The Externalisation of the Hierarchy", 1939, pp. 75-78
The great energy of purification [Shamballa force] is regenerating humanity, and of this the wide spread fires which have been such an outstanding characteristic of this war (1914-1945) are the outward and visible sign. Much evil is being burnt out through the revelation of the appalling character of that evil, and through this, unity is being produced... The energy of destruction has its side of beauty when the spiritual values are grasped.
-- "The Rays and the Initiations", 1943, p. 86
This world crisis, with all its horror and suffering, is -- in the last analysis -- the result of successful evolutionary processes...
Today we are watching the death of a civilisation or cycle of incarnation of humanity...worn out religious dogmas and the grip of theology and the orthodox churches have no longer sufficed to hold the allegiance of the potent, inner, spiritual life... There is everywhere a cry for change and for those new forms in the religious, political, educational, and economic life of the race which will allow...better spiritual expression. Such a change is rapidly coming and is regarded by some as death -- terrible and to be avoided if possible. It is indeed death, but it is beneficent and needed...
That humanity is bringing about this needed change in unnecessary, cruel and painful ways is indeed true... Nevertheless, for the progress of the soul...death is inevitable, good and necessary... But we need to remember that the worst death of all...would be if a form of civilisation or a body form became static and eternal; if the old order never altered and the old values were never transmuted into higher and better ones, that would indeed be a disaster...
This stage of death and of birth...can be easily grasped by the esotericist as he studies the world war in its two distinctive periods: 1914 to 1918, and 1939 until 1942. The first stage...was most definitely the death stage; the second stage, in which we now find ourselves, is literally the stage of birth -- the birth pangs of the new order and of the new civilisation.
Such a dying is ever a painful process. Pain has always been the purifying agent, employed by the Lords of Destiny, to bring about liberation. The accumulated pain of the present war and the inherited pain of the earlier stage (begun in 1914) is bringing about a salutary and changing world consciousness. The Lord of Pain has descended from his throne and is treading the ways of the earth today, bringing distress, agony and terror to those who cannot interpret His ends.

Others again may have faint glimmerings of this new approach to God and service, which -- again I say -- can and must remake, rebuild, and rehabilitate the world... Those who seek to evoke the Shamballa force, are approaching close to the energy of fire... Fire was an outstanding aspect of the war... This was the great menacing and chosen means of destruction in this war. This is a fulfillment of the ancient prophecy, that the attempt to destroy the Aryan race will be by means of fire, just as ancient Atlantis was destroyed by water. But, fiery good will and the conscious focussed use of the Shamballa force, can counter fire by fire, and this must be done.
-- "Esoteric Astrology", 1951 edition, pp. 586-587
To many of you...the World War was a supreme disaster, an agony to be averted in the future at any cost, a dire and dreadful happening indicative of the wickedness of man and the incredible blind indifference of God. To us, on the inner side, the World War was in the nature of a major surgical operation made in an effort to save the patient's life. A violent streptococcic germ and infection had menaced the life of humanity (speaking in symbols) and an operation was made in order to prolong opportunity and save life, not to save the form. This operation was largely successful. The germ, to be sure, is not eradicated and makes its presence felt in infected areas in the body of humanity.
Another surgical operation may be necessary, not in order to destroy and end the present civilisation, but in order to dissipate the infection and get rid of the fever. It may not, however, be needed, for a process of dissipation, distribution, and absorption has been going on and may prove effective. Let us work towards that end. But at the same time, let us never forget that it is the Life, its purpose and its directed intentional destiny that is of importance; and also that when a form proves inadequate, or too diseased, or too crippled for the expression of that purpose, it is -- from the point of view of the Hierarchy -- no disaster when that form has to go. Death is not a disaster to be feared; the work of the Destroyer is not really cruel or undesirable.
"Education in the New Age", 1954 edition, pp. 111-112
The Hierarchy is deeply concerned over world events... The New Age is upon us and we are witnessing the birth pangs of the new culture and the new civilisation. This is now in progress. That which is old and undesirable must go and of these undesirable things, hatred and the spirit of separation must be the first to go.
"The Externalization of the Hierarchy", pp. 61-62
The Hierarchy is struggling hard with the so-called "forces of evil", and the New Group of World Servers is the instrument... The forces of evil are...the entrenched ancient ideals...which must now disappear if the New Age is to be ushered in as desired. The old established rhythms, inherent in the old forms of religion, of politics, and of the social order, must give place to newer ideals, to the synthetic understanding, and to the new order. The laws and modes of procedure which are characteristic of the New Age must supersede the old, and these will, in time, institute the new social order and the more inclusive regime.
"Esoteric Psychology II", 1942, pp. 630-631
They [France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal] have...reacted to that force [Shamballa force] through the medium of certain great and outstanding personalities who were peculiarly sensitive to the will-to-power and the will-to-change and who...have altered the character of their national life, and emphasised increasingly the wider human values.
The men who inspired the initiating French revolution; the great conqueror, Napoleon; Bismarck, the creator of a nation; Mussolini, the regenerator of his people; Hitler who lifted a distressed people upon his shoulders; Lenin, the idealist; Stalin and Franco are all expressions of the Shamballa force and of certain little-understood energies. These have wrought significant changes in their day and generation...
We call these people dictators, demagogues, inspired leaders, or just and wise men, according to our peculiar ideology, tradition, attitudes to our fellowmen and our particular political, economic and religious training. But all these leaders are...in the last analysis, highly developed personalities. They are being used to engineer great and needed changes and to alter the face of civilisation...
Blame not the personalities involved or the men who produce these events before which we stand today bewildered and appalled. They are only the product of the past and the victims of the present. At the same time, they are the agents of destiny, the creators of the new order and the initiators of the new civilisation; they are the destroyers of what must be destroyed before humanity can go forward along the Lighted Way.
-- "The Externalisation of the Hierarchy", 1939, pp. 133-135
I write for the generation which will come...at the end of this century; they will inaugurate the framework, structure and fabric of the New Age...which will develop the civilisation of the Aquarian Age. This coming age will be as predominantly the age of group interplay, group idealism, and group consciousness as the Piscean Age has been one of personality unfoldment...for the will of the individual will voluntarily be blended into the group will.
-- "The Rays and the Initiations", 1943-1947, p. 109
It will be for humanity then to precipitate and stabilise the appearing good, and this they will learn to do through the utilisation of the third Shamballa energy -- the energy of organisation. The new world will be built upon the ruins of the old. The new structure will rise.
-- "The Rays and the Initiations", 1943-1947, p. 88
I refer to that period which will surely come in which an Enlightened People will rule; these people will not tolerate authoritarianism in any church...they will not accept or permit the rule of any body of men who undertake to tell them what they must believe in order to be saved...
-- "The Reappearance of the Christ", 1948, pp. 164-165
World unity will be a fact when the children of the world are taught that religious differences are largely a matter of birth; that if a man is born in Italy, the probability is that he will be a Roman Catholic; if he is born a Jew, he will follow the Jewish teaching; if born in Asia, he may be a Mohammedan, a Buddhist, or belong to one of the Hindu sects; if born in other countries, he may be a Protestant, and so on. He will learn that the religious differences are largely the result of man made quarrels over human interpretations of the truth. Thus gradually, our quarrels and differences will be offset and the idea of the One Humanity will take their place.
"Education in the New Age", 1954 edition, p. 88
Recognition and successful work of the New Group of World Servers will be accorded by the Hierarchy, and the testimony of the recognition will be the appearing of a symbol in the aura of...the entire group. This will be a symbol projected by the Hierarchy, specifically by the Christ... It is "the mark of a Saviour" and it will embody the mark or indication (the signature as medieval occultists used to call it) of a new type of salvation or salvage. Up till now the mark of the Saviour has been the Cross, and the quality of the salvation offered has been freedom from substance or the lure of matter and from its hold -- a freedom only to be achieved at a great cost.
The future holds within its silence other modes of saving humanity. The cup of sorrow and the agony of the Cross are well-nigh finished. Joy and strength will take their place. Instead of sorrow we shall have a joy which will work out in happiness and lead eventually to bliss.
"The Rays and the Initiations", 1957 edition, pp. 233-234
There is as you well know, no angry God, no hell and no vicarious atonement...and the only hell is the earth itself, where we learn to work out our own salvation... This teaching [about] hell is a reminder of the sadistic turn which was given to the thinking of the Christian Church in the Middle Ages and to the erroneous teaching to be found in the Old Testament [about] Jehovah, the tribal God of the Jews. Jehovah is not God...
As these erroneous ideas die out, the concept of hell will fade from man's recollection and its place will be taken by an understanding of the law which makes each man work out his own salvation...which leads him to right the wrongs which he may have perpetuated in his lives on Earth, and which enables him eventually to "clean his own slate".
-- "Esoteric Healing", 1953 edition, p. 393
The failure of Christianity can be traced to its Jewish background (emphasised by St. Paul), which made it full of propaganda instead of loving action, which taught the blood sacrifice, instead of loving service, and which emphasised the existence of a wrathful God, needing to be placated by death, and which embodied the threats of the Old Testament Jehovah in the Christian teaching of hell fire.
This situation is one which the Christ is seeking to alter; it has been in preparation for His instituting a new and more correct presentation of divine truth that I have sought -- with love and understanding -- to point out the faults of the world religions, with their obsolete theologies and their lack of love, and to indicate the evils of Judaism.
The present world faiths must return to their early simplicity, and orthodox Judaism, with its deep-seated hate, must slowly disappear; all must be changed in preparation for the revelation which Christ will bring.
-- "The Externalisation of the Hierarchy", 1957 edition, pp. 542-543
It can be expected that the orthodox Christian will at first reject the theories about the Christ which occultism presents; at the same time, this same orthodox Christian will find it increasingly difficult to induce the intelligent masses of people to accept the impossible Deity and the feeble Christ, which historical Christianity has endorsed.
A Christ Who is present and living, Who is known to those who follow Him, Who is a strong and able executive and not a sweet and sentimental sufferer, Who has never left us but Who has worked for two thousand years through the medium of his disciples, the inspired men and women of all faiths...Who has no use for fanaticism or hysterical devotion but Who loves all men persistently, intelligently, and optimistically, Who sees divinity in them all and Who comprehends the techniques of the evolutionary development of the human consciousness... these ideas the intelligent public can and will accept.
-- "The Externalisation of the Hierarchy", 1957 edition, pp. 589-590
Jesus warned us that times such as these would come immediately prior to His return:
As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?"
Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming 'I am the Christ', and will deceive many..."
"At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people..."
"At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'There he is!', do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect -- if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time."
Matthew 24:3-5, 10-11, 23-25 (NIV)
The day may soon come when Christians will be required to lay down their lives because of their beliefs. But, regardless of this, we must continue to raise a standard so that the world will be without excuse for its defiant ways, and in order that the truth of Jesus Christ may be proclaimed.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. -- Ephesians 6:13 (NIV)

As you can see, this is a lengthy but interesting article, taken from an Orthodox blog.
“Everybody wants to rule the world.” You know the song and the history of “world rulers.” Most people just want to be left alone, but there is a segment of people that only desire to control the lives of others. History is filled with their desires to conquer, control, and subjugate the masses. Stay tuned, because more are on the way.
Very intriguing. I wish there were a simple, short version explaining the key points, the connections between the decline of freedom in our country, and the demonic and pagan background in much of the “one world order” ideologies that people mistakenly believe are altruistic, uniting and noble.
I’d share such a summary with the “New Age” friends and family that are always pushing this “enlightened” stuff on me. (Hey, I got into all this junk in college, OK? I grew out of it, you can too!). I can’t give them this article, because if it’s longer than a page or more complicated than an Oprah broadcast, they can’t follow it.
Isn’t “New Age” a misnomer? These ideas have been floating around for a few centuries as “theosophy,” “spiritualism,” “free thinking,” etc. It’s not “new” at all, but hackneyed and trite. We should call it something that sounds less edifying.
They are as old as civilization.
What a coincidence! The following article is also dated today.
The "new age movement" is as evil as evil can be, but--
its teachings are altogether false and none of the "deities" or whatever these people believe in actually exist. Many of them, as former chr*stians, retain the chr*stian error that Satan is the "fallen angel Lucifer" who is in rebellion against G-d (G-d forbid!). This doesn't mean that the Satan and the demons aren't doing their jobs and exploiting all these foolish people, of course.
"Globalism" is the ideology of only the Western Left. Non-Western and "Third World" Leftists are fanatical nationalists who would have been at home in World War II-era Japan. Their goal is an ethnically pure mystical motherland whose pristine virgin soil shall no longer be violated by the white "foreign devil." Any such "world government" will be made up of only the Western nations.
While I am adamantly opposed to any one world system of any kind other than one completely ruled by the True G-d I have come to believe that many of the anti-globalists (especially the racist, anti-Semitic variety) are in fact henotheists--people who reject the idea of a single G-d and believe there is a separate "gxd" for each nation. This explains their hostility to Judaism and the otherwise strange combination of this hostility with racialism and an aversion to "race-mixing" (some even deny that the human race is a single species). The fact is that Fundamentalist Protestants traditionally did not consider "one world government" to be inherently evil but rather believed that the true one world government of G-d A-mighty must first be preceded by an evil counterfeit one-world government of Satan, and it is this first that they always opposed. This fact has been forgotten recently, which I believe aids the slide into henotheism.
Finally, whatever one may say about the J Witnesses (and they are certainly annoying and their religion is certainly false), I think it is unfair to count them as part of a sinister globalist conspiracy. They are in fact "Theocratic anarchists" who believe all human government is inspired by Satan and they thus refuse citizenship in any human government, awaiting the Divine government instead (as they understand it). That isn't too very far from traditional Fundamentalist Protestantism.
Sandy, I checked the link and this little braintwist hit me:
“For sacrifice and deprivation are paths that lead nowhere, choices for defeat, and aims that will remain impossible.”
Really contrary to our thought. As Catholics, we view personal sacrifice and deprivation in many ways; for penance, fasting for spiritual clarity and for prayer, for souls, and for our own requests of our Lord. That sacrifice makes the impossible possible.
On another level, deriding personal sacrifice opens the way for a selfish, ego-ridden humanity.
On the most da*ning spiritual level, it sets up the ability for one to dismiss Christ’s sacrifice and its Redemptive effect on humanity. It isn’t stated, but over time the idea that sacrifice is useless can impress on the impressionable this thought, even unwritten.
It’s subtle writing and darn evil. You are probably right about this being the Third and final stage.

I haven't read this all yet, but a few comments.
If you research history, and look at how some of the great generals like Napoleon expressed their goals, you find that it follows (somewhat) what is said here.
They usually want to unite the world in a New Order (Napoleon's, Hilter’s, and Stalin's word for it, that term is not new) of universal government. They want to corrupt or replace Christianity with a new teaching, and they all have strong hints of demonic help (Napoleon's Red Man for example). They often appear unstoppable, and then fall quickly. Former followers of them acknowledge the horrors that they have done, but often say that they would do them again because of the hold the great general had on them.
Now this isn't an endorsement of any grand conspiracy, but an acknowledgment of the battle between God and the devil that is going. The devil has a plan, and has been working to implement it for some time now. If you read the Bible, you can see that God lets the devil come close in the End, only to through him into the eternal prison.
“She was one of the most evil and immoral women who ever lived...with personal duplicity and profound contempt for humanity.”
“It can be expected that the orthodox Christian will at first reject the theories about the Christ which occultism presents; at the same time, this same orthodox Christian will find it increasingly difficult to induce the intelligent masses of people to accept the impossible Deity and the feeble Christ, which historical Christianity has endorsed.”
Sounds like the current day.
