The Spiritual Foundation of the United Nations

The Lucis Trust

The Lucis Trust is the Publishing House which prints and disseminates United Nations material. It is a devastating indictment of the New Age and Pagan nature of the UN. Lucis Trust was established in 1922 as Lucifer Trust by Alice Bailey as the publishing company to disseminate the books of Bailey and Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society. The title page of Alice Bailey's book, 'Initiation, Human and Solar' was originally printed in 1922, and clearly shows the publishing house as 'Lucifer Publishing CoIn 1923. Bailey changed the name to Lucis Trust, because Lucifer Trust revealed the true nature of the New Age Movement too clearly. (Constance Cumbey, The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, p. 49). A quick trip to any New Age bookstore will reveal that many of the hard-core New Age books are published by Lucis Trust.

At one time, the Lucis Trust office in New York was located at 866 United Nations Plaza and is a member of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations under a slick program called "World Goodwill". In an Alice Bailey book called "Education for a New Age"; she suggests that in the new age "World Citizenship should be the goal of the enlightened, with a world federation and a world brain." In other words - a One World Government New World Order.

Luci's Trust is sponsored by among others Robert McNamara, former minister of Defence in the USA, president of the World Bank, member of the Rockefeller Foundation, and Thomas Watson (IBM, former ambassador in Moscow). Luci's Trust sponsors among others the following organizations: UN, Greenpeace Int., Greenpeace USA, Amnesty Int. and UNICEF.

The United Nations has long been one of the foremost world harbingers for the "New Spirituality" and the gathering "New World Order" based on ancient occult and freemasonic principles. Seven years after the birth of the UN, a book was published by the theosophist and founder of the Lucis Trust, Alice Bailey, claiming that "Evidence of the growth of the human intellect along the needed receptive lines [for the preparation of the New Age] can be seen in the "planning" of various nations and in the efforts of the United Nations to formulate a world plan... From the very start of this unfoldment, three occult factors have governed the development of all these plans". [Alice B. Bailey, Discipleship in the New Age (Lucis Press, 1955), Vol. II, p.35.]

Although she did not spell out clearly the identity of these 'three occult factors', she did reveal to her students that "Within the United Nations is the germ and seed of a great international and meditating, reflective group - a group of thinking and informed men and women in whose hands lies the destiny of humanity. This is largely under the control of many fourth ray disciples, if you could but realise it, and their point of meditative focus is the intuitional or Buddhic plane - the plane upon which all hierarchical activity is today to be found'. [Ibid. p.220.]

To this end, the Lucis Trust, under the leadership of Foster and Alice Bailey, started a group called 'World Goodwill' - an official non-governmental organization within the United Nations. The stated aim of this group is "to cooperate in the world of preparation for the reappearance of the Christ" [One Earth, the magazine of the Findhorn Foundation, October/November 1986, Vol. 6, Issue 6, p.24.]

But the esoteric work inside the UN does not stop with such recognized occult groupings. Much of the impetus for this process was initiated through the officership of two Secretary-Generals of the UN, Dag HammarskjŲld (held office: 1953-1961) and U Thant (held office: 1961-1971) who succeeded him, and one Assistant Secretary-general, Dr. Robert Muller. In a book written to celebrate the philosophy of Teilhard de Chardin (and edited by Robert Muller), it is revealed "Dag HammarskjŲld, the rational Nordic economist, had ended up as a mystic. He too held at the end of his life that spirituality was the ultimate key to our earthly fate in time and space". [Robert Muller (ed.), The Desire to be Human: A Global Reconnaissance of Human Perspectives in an Age of Transformation (Miranana, 1983), p.304.]

Sri Chinmoy, the New Age guru, meditation leader at the UN, wrote: "the United Nations is the chosen instrument of God; to be a chosen instrument means to be a divine messenger carrying the banner of God's inner vision and outer manifestation."

William Jasper, author of "A New World Religion" describes the religion of the UN: "...a weird and diabolical convergence of New Age mysticism, pantheism, aboriginal animism atheism, communism, socialism, Luciferian occultism, apostate Christianity, Islam, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism".

You can also read the NWO quotes I posted, further down this page. Here's another by Curtis Dall, FD Roosevelt's son in law as quoted in his book, My Exploited Father in Law:

"For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But, he didn't. Most of his thoughts, his political ammunition, as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advanced by the Council on Foreign Relations One World Money group... Brilliantly, with great gusto, like a fine piece of artillery, he exploded that prepared "ammunition" in the middle of an unsuspecting target, the American people, and thus paid off and returned his internationalist political support.

The UN is but a long range, international banking apparatus nearly set up for financial and economic profit by a small group of powerful One World Revolutionaries, hungry for profit and power.

The depression was the calculated 'shearing' of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market... The One World Government leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank."


 

New Age influence on the UN

In the above quote from Spec. New it is mentioned that he never had taken an oath besides the one about defending the United States. An oath to the United Nations, which these soldiers may have been forced to take, is in fact required of the United Nations Secretariat. I quote the oath verbatim:

"I solemnly swear to exercise in all loyalty, discretion, and
conscience, the functions entrusted to me as an international
civil servant of the United Nations, to discharge these functions
and regulate my conduct with the interests of the United Nations
only in view
, and not to seek or accept instructions in regard to
the performance of my duties from any government or other
authority
external to the Organization." [emphasis mine]

If you are looking for proof that the United Nations is not just godless, but is actually hostile towards God, then you have it in this oath. Here the UN makes it clear that when serving them, only their interests matter, and only their instructions are to be followed. This oath is taken over EVERY OTHER AUTHORITY, which of course includes God. The very requirement of soldiers to take this oath is simply ridiculous, because it is actually a violation of the UN's Universal Declaration on Human Rights, Article 19, which states that:

"Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression;
this right includes the freedom to hold opinions without
interference...."

I think that it is safe to say that if it is someone's opinion (or belief) that God's Word supersedes all other authorities - including the UN - and then the UN comes in and forces that person to take an oath over God, then they are responsible for causing an "interference" with that person's belief, and therefore they have violated Article 19. HOWEVER, the authors of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights made sure to provide their organization a convenient loophole, in the form of Article 29:

"These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised
contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations."

This statement refers to all the rights that were previously defined as belonging to all people everywhere. Therefore, the right to freedom of opinion, and even freedom of religion (Article 18) are void in the face of what the UN dictates. According to this supposed "victory for human rights", certain (if not all) God-given rights are not to be exercised by those who disagree with the UN's purposes and principles. And it is the very nature of these purposes and principles which prove that the freedom to practice Christianity will have no place in the New World Order.

What is interesting about the UN's tactic of including a self-nullifying clause in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights is that the same tactic is also employed by Communist Vietnam - specifically for the purpose of persecuting the Christian church. Article 1 of a decree on religious activities states that "discrimination based on beliefs and religion is prohibited." However, in the same way as the UN's Declaration on Human Rights, this document includes a provision which renders Article 1 meaningless:

"...Article 5 of the decree promises that any act "which destroys
the unity of the people, which harms the sound cultural base of
the nation, and superstitious activities will all be dealt with
according to the law." (24)

Vietnamese authorities cite Article 5 in punishing Christian believers. In this same way, the UN could cite Article 29 if they were to raise a persecution against the church; they could simply claim that professing Christians are exercising their right to freedom of religion in a way "contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations". To corroborate this prospect, evidence will now be presented which proves that the UN is heavily influenced by New Age teachings, and is, as consequence, strongly opposed to Bible-based (or "fundamentalist") Christianity. It is the UN's desire that Christianity be weakened, and eventually eradicated, because it is hindering the declaration of the New Age "Christ" Maitreya - whom the UN wholly endorses.

All of what is being spoken about relates to the larger picture of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. In regards to the UN acceptance of New Age teachings, which I will be showing shortly, we must keep in mind this verse:

"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;" (1 Timothy 4:1, KJV)

Seeing as we are in the "latter times", we would expect nothing less than a new kind of religion, inspired by demons, and having much influence. The Holy Spirit inspired Paul to prophesy about the New Age Movement when he wrote of these "doctrines of devils", which would gain much influence before the return of Jesus Christ. We shall see just how widespread the influence of this demon-doctrine really has become in the remainder of this article.

As I have said before, I believe that a great deal of Biblical prophecy - i.e. those about the beast of Rev. 13 (Anti-Christ) - will soon be fulfilled by a New Age teacher known as Maitreya, or "the Christ". The gradual emergence of this man has been documented for many years in the magazine Share International, and in the books of its chief editor Benjamin Creme. I have in this article shared several quotes in which Creme endorses the United Nations - all of which are evidence for my theory that the UN is under the control of demonic forces. However, evidence establishing a direct connection between the UN and the antichrist Maitreya exists as well. The following is an excerpt from the contents page of Share International magazine:

"Share International is published monthly, except bi-monthly in
January/February and July/August of each year, by SHARE
INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION, a non-profit, non-governmental
organization in association with the Department of Public
Information at the United Nations."

Surprising? Not really. We should not be at all surprised to discover that the UN, who is building the world government of Antichrist, not only supports Maitreya and his teachings, but is helping to distribute his satanic doctrine as well. After all, many UN officials and other affiliates are New Age dabblers and strong supporters of the NAM. Let us take a moment to examine some of these folks:

Robert Muller is the former Assistant Secretary-General to three UN Secretary-Generals, Chancellor of the UN University, and a devotee of Alice Bailey. He has written the book 'New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality', and has had articles published in Share International magazine. Muller is a strong supporter of not only theosophy, but also of the Gaia movement. If you are not familiar with the Cult of Gaia, it is a movement which believes that the earth has a spirit or planetary brain, which can interact with people through spiritual experiences. "Gaia" is the name given to the earth spirit, after the earth goddess of ancient Greek and Roman mythology. Members of this cult claim that Gaia has been very angry with our environmental abuses in the last century, and therefore we all must take extreme measures to save the planet, else she causes more disasters. Muller makes note of his support for the Gaia hypothesis in the following statement:

"We thought at the time that the sun was turning around the
earth until we learned from Copernicus that it was not true.
Now we're learning that perhaps this planet has not been
created for humans, but that humans have been created for
the planet. We hear now of the Gaia hypothesis, of the
interdependence of all inert and living matter, that we are part
and parcel of a living planetary organism. . . . We have now a
world brain which determines what can be dangerous or mortal
for the planet: the United Nations and its agencies, and
innumberable (sic) groups and networks around the world, are
part of the brain." (25)

Here Muller makes it clear what he thinks of the hypothesis: it is absolutely correct! He believes Gaia to be just as much a fact as the earth's revolution around the sun. He also believes that the UN plays a very important part in the movement to save the earth/Gaia - a movement that he has no doubt helped greatly from the various positions he has held at the UN over the years. Additionally, his statement that "humans have been created for the planet" reminds me of what Paul said in Romans about some certain heathen Gentiles, who "changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator" (Rom 1:25). And consider also what Paul revealed shortly after this statement:

"They know God's decree, that those who practice such things
deserve to die--yet they not only do them but even applaud
others who practice them." (Romans 1:32)

This could not be more true than in regards to the United Nations: not only do they themselves serve the created earth instead of the one true God, but they applaud and support those who would do the same. And yet, as with all other servants of evil, "their end will match their deeds" (2 Cor 11:15).

U Thant, the late Burmese Marxist who professed Buddhism and was the third Secretary-General of the UN. It was under his direction that Robert Muller and UN consultant Donald Keys started "The Planetary Citizens", a New Age activist group which is focused on spreading the "planetary consciousness" gospel to both New Agers and the general public. The group to this day is an NGO (non-governmental organization) with "consultative status" at the UN.

Donald Keys, a UN consultant who co-founded The Planetary Citizens and is the group's president. His political activities have been extremely influential with United Nations delegations, and he has written a book, 'Earth at Omega', which is a standard in the department of New Age ecology.

Dr. Norman Myers, who has been an adviser to the UN, the World Bank, and the U.S. State Department. He is one of the many established authorities on the Gaian religion of earth-worship, and he has authored the book 'The Gaia Atlas of Future Worlds'. His book uses many of the now-common "one-world" buzz-words to make its points, including statements encouraging all humans to be united in the "Gaian Community".

Sri Chinmoy, a New Age guru who runs the UN's Meditation Room. He has written 30+ books including 'Death and Reincarnation: Eternity's Voyage' and 'The Garland of Nation-Souls: Complete Talks at the United Nations'. He claims that "the United Nations is the chosen instrument of God", which carries "the banner of God's inner vision and outer manifestation." (26)

Mohammed Ramadan, president of the UN's Society for Enlightenment and Transformation. As William Norman Grigg wrote in his book 'Freedom on the Altar', Ramadan "has opened the UN's headquarters to all varieties of "spiritual sages" - mystics, "channelers," UFO enthusiasts, and like" - (27). Grigg also shares a quote from the Boston Globe which states the following:

"From a small, basement headquarters at the United Nations,
Ramadan and other spiritual seekers have established several
metaphysical associations with the intentions of radiating karmic
energy into the upper reaches of UN headquarters, where
Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali and other eminent
diplomats work." (28)

The work of this bizarre New Age group is apparently just the kind of "enlightenment" that the UN feels comfortable supporting. While traditional religions are criticized by the UN, as we shall see later, channelers and mystics have no problem fitting in at the United Nations.

Keith Suter, an Australian "Christian" spokesman for the Uniting Church, who has has held executive positions at the UN and with the New Age organization Friends of the Earth, in addition to his membership in the Club of Rome. In his book "Global Change: Armageddon and the New World Order" he writes that:

"[There is a] need to make peace with the planet. Humankind
increases its chances of lasting if it puts the environment FIRST.
Such a preoccupation would be in accordance with what I see
the Bible as teaching." (p. 343)

Which Bible would that be? The same Bible which condemns those who"serve the creature more than the Creator"? Anyway, throughout the book, Suter quotes from New Age and pro-NWO writings many times, while referring to the Gaia hypothesis as being valid. He is just another one of the many ravenous wolves in sheep's clothing out there, which have come "not sparing the flock" (Acts 20:29).

Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, who may become the next head of the UN. Robinson is a recognized member of the feminist movement, which is closely affiliated with the New Age Movement. Also of note is her contribution of an article to the June issue of Share International Magazine.

Canadian billionaire Maurice Strong, the Secretary General of the 1992 United Nations Conference of Environment and Development, a.k.a. the "Earth Summit". He continues to maintain great influence in issues at the UN, which is evidenced by the costly environmental plan set forth in the Earth Summit's "Agenda 21". Strong was a serious candidate for Secretary General of the UN in 1992, is a member of the Club of Rome, and has been known to financially support New Age movements in the U.S. He is the owner of a 63,000 acre Colorado ranch called the Baca Grande, which houses adepts from all strands of New Age mysticism, such as:

 

  • disciples of the XVI Gyalwa Karmapa, a faction of Tibetan Buddhism
  • Carmelites, who there built the Spiritual Life Institute, a co-ed monastery for silent contemplation
  • disciples of Babaji, an Indian Guru, who practice Hindu rituals in a solar-powered, gold-domed, adobe temple
  • Taoists and Sufis, both of which have temples on the property

 

Additionally, Shirley MacLaine, the New Ager whose 1987 mini-series 'Out on a Limb' inspired thousands to seek demonic-possession (by way of channeling), sought to build a New Age study center at the Baca, where people could take week-long courses. The plan fell through when local resistance mounted against the idea of a resort.

Kofi Annan, the current Secretary-General of the United Nations, who was allegedly married in the occult Meditation Room at the UN building in New York. Annan also appointed Maurice Strong as his Senior Adviser on United Nations reform issues. This means that the same man who has shown his passionate devotion to the NAM many times over has also been given the job of redesigning the United Nations for the future. The form that the UN may take after Strong's modifications could potentially lead us right into the "New Age" of world government.

(The source from which much of the preceding information has been taken is http://sovereignty.net/p/gov/ggreligion.htm)

It is clear from all these cases that the NAM is very influential amongst many of the most important people behind the United Nations. In fact, the UN has always shown interest in New Age mysticism, since the very beginning of the United Nations Organization:


"When the UN Headquarters Building [New York] was built in 1946, the architects included a Meditation Room in which the only object available to worshipers is the rectangular Black Rock, a symbol of the tellurian underworld thrust up from thedarkness below. This Black Rock is the hidden Goddess. It is the rock upon which the Church of the UNbelievers isbuilt, and the center of the Organization." (29)

This Meditation Room also contains an abstract piece of art:

"...what appears to be a serpent intertwining a pole intersected by the perpendicular side of a triangle
(cf. the central cross intertwined with a serpent) in front of a half-darkened sun representing the
Zoroastrian concept of the conflict between good and evil...." (30)

These occultic overtones, with the "Black Rock" and the abstract-serpent-art, are definitely intentional. And no wonder - according to William Norman Grigg in his book 'Freedom on the Altar', the Lucis Trust (which was founded by Alice Bailey) helped to create not only the UN Meditation Room, but also the UN's interfaith "Temple of Understanding" ('Freedom on the Altar', p. 165). Also of interest, Alice Bailey enthusiasts Corrine McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson have, in their book 'Spiritual Politics', described the UN Meditation Room as a place where spiritual experiences have been known to be had by UN officials and associates. Furthermore, the authors claim the following about it:

"The room ... has been referred to as one of the holiest of
holies on the planet.... It is the focus for the energies of a
unified planet and humanity, and for right relations among
all its kingdoms of life." (31)

This book is lauded by New Age author David Spangler, who is widely recognized for his statements that a "Luciferic Initiation" will be required of all people to enter into the New Age. It also receives praise from Dr. Noel Brown, the director of the United Nations Environmental Program, who says that he hopes that the book will be read by "leaders in all spheres of life". And no wonder, for it accurately portrays the UN as a product of anti-Christian New Age thought:

"Fundamentalist Christians have great fear of any movement
toward a world government, such as the United Nations, or
toward "oneness", such as the New Age movement. . . . But this
fear of "oneness" and unity may be due to the fact that many
who are drawn to simplistic fundamentalist perspectives are
"pre-individualized" and haven't as yet discovered their own
identity as individuals. . . . A helpful way for fundamentalists to
overcome their fear is to remember the "unity in diversity" theme,
which forms the basis of the work of both the United Nations and
the New Age movement
...." [emphasis mine] (32)

First of all, the similarities between the work of the UN and NAM which are mentioned here all help to point out the fact that the UN is accepted by New Agers as being an arm of their movement - which it has been my goal to illustrate in this article. Also notice how all Christians who don't agree with the NAM or the UN are labeled "fundamentalists", who must strive to overcome their "fear" of world government and of "oneness". They then go on to refer to biblical Christianity as a "simplistic" religion, whose followers are inferior, because they don't have any real identity of their own. And yet by writing such things, these authors demonstrate what has become the overall consensus of both the UN and NAM, which is that Christianity is an inadequate religion for the New Age. What's more, Christianity is often viewed by the UN/NAM as being counter-productive and even dangerous, which I will show later on in this article and in articles to come. Additionally, this "oneness" is referred to in the Bible as being a quality of the ten kings who support the Antichrist and give him their ruling power, thereby making him world dictator (see Rev 17:12-13, where the ten kings are said to have "one mind"; this prophecy also refers us to the New Age principle that "all is one", which will have great influence on the ten future kings of the earth. We have already seen some of this kind of influence in New Age leaders like Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Mary Robinson, and even Mikhail Gorbachev).

The above quote also reveals that New Agers are well aware that the United Nations is a movement towards a one world government, also demonstrated in this quote from Creme:

"The United Nations is the blueprint for a future World Government
of federated independent states." (33)

And as we know, the Bible has much to say about a world government of this kind, which, among other things, will have Antichrist as its head. Even more startling is the fact that the UN actually admits to the validity of Creme's statement:

"Mankind's problems can no longer be solved by national
governments. What is needed is a World Government. This
can best be achieved by strengthening the United Nations
system. In some cases, this would mean changing the role
of UN agencies from advice-giving to implementation." (34)

What we have here is one of the many examples which show that the agenda of the United Nations is in full agreement with that of the NAM.

Returning now to the topic of discussion, another author, Piers Compton, reveals an additional connection between the UN's Meditation Room and the NAM:

"A carefully edited bulletin, that supposedly dealt with the meaning
and purpose of the room, was produced by the Lucis Press, which
issues printed matter for the United Nations. The suspicious may
find food for thought in the fact that this publishing company ... was
[originally] known as Lucifer Press...." (35)

Lucis Press is the company which publishes the works of Alice Bailey and various other theosophists. Originally, as stated here, the company went under the name of Lucifer Press - which was not well received by the public. The name was then changed by the founder Bailey. That the name originally was Lucifer Press is understandable when you consider the respect given to this fallen angel in the works of Bailey; for example, in her book 'Destiny of the Nations' (1949) Lucifer is said to be the "Ruler of Humanity" (page 23). And even before Lucifer Press there was the magazine 'Lucifer', created by Theosophical Society founder H. P. Blavatsky.

One other point of interest is that the organization World Goodwill, which was founded in 1932 as a project of Bailey's Lucis Trust, is among the UN accredited non-governmental organizations (listed here). Among the listed activities of World Goodwill is the distribution of copies of the Great Invocation on a worldwide scale and in many languages. However, this "world prayer" actually is all about the manifestation of Satan's plan on earth. It says things like "May Christ return to Earth" - a reference to Maitreya, and talks about letting "Light descend on Earth" - a reference to the false light, by which Maitreya will deceive many when he declares himself to the world. The Great Invocation also refers to "sealing the door where evil dwells", which Bailey explains to mean the final ridding of the "three dead and gone" monotheistic religions. She says that the invocation speaks of humanity's great task, which is to "close the door" on what she claims is the "worst" evil in existence - monotheism ('The Rays and the Initiations', p. 754). Therefore, because of the UN's support for World Goodwill, they are on record as being in support of the destruction of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.

Let us continue.... Donald Keys, the UN consultant and president of Planetary Citizens, has in the past claimed that meditations are had at the United Nations a couple of times a week, with New Age meditation leader Sri Chinmoy - (36). It is these meditations which provide for the officials of the United Nations a direct link to the evil spirits which seek to manipulate them. In the same way that the repetition of the Great Invocation invites evil into the hearts of many, these kinds of meditations subject UN leaders to the demonic.

Now consider for a moment all the information that I have presented as you read this review of what has just been said:

 

  • UN leaders often go to the Meditation Room, where they meditate under the direction of a prominent New Age authority
  • it is here that the occult "energies" of the NAM are focused, as shown in the above quote from 'Spiritual Politics'

 

They are no doubt interacting with these "energies", which the authors of the book claim are present in other places at the United Nations building as well:

"Delegates and staff who work in the energy field of the UN ...
speak of being profoundly changed by being there...." (37)

On the basis of all this information, and on what we have read from Benjamin Creme and Alice Bailey about the influence of the demonic Spiritual Hierarchy on the UN, can we really dismiss it as a coincidence that the UN has the same exact agenda as the NAM? Why all these similarities? Why does the UN distribute materials for the demonically-inspired Share International, and why do they have a record of affiliation with Lucis (Lucifer) Press? Why do they seem to show support for every new endeavor of the NAM? Why does it appear that the two are working together? It's a simple enough answer: they are.

The UN, from its inception, has been a tool of the demons that are looking to bring about a New World Order under Antichrist, the world dictator. The godless leaders of the UN have always been selected by these evil spirits, which have made sure to be in contact with their human pawns through New Age meditation. I have seen no reason to doubt that the United Nations has completely surrendered to the will of these "seducing spirits", which Paul prophesied of so many years ago.

It might interest the reader to know that when Pope Paul VI visited and addressed the United Nations in October, 1965, he participated in one of these New Age meditations at the UN's Meditation Room (Piers Compton, 'The Broken Cross', cited below). This is further evidence that not only the United Nations, but also the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church is working under the influence of the same spirit of evil - the spirit of Anti-Christ.

The UN/globalist plan for Christianity

It is as a direct result of the dominance of this New Age and anti-Christian spirit at the UN that we find documents endorsed by the United Nations which are highly critical of Christianity. One of these documents is the 'Global Biodiversity Assessment', which was published for the United Nations Environment Program in 1995. Page 839 of the report reads as follows:

"Societies dominated by Islam, and especially by Christianity,
have gone farthest in setting humans apart from nature and
in embracing a value system that has converted the world
into a warehouse of commodities for human enjoyment."

Basically, this UN report is playing the blame-game, and most of the blame is being put on Christianity. As is obvious from expensive undertakings such as Agenda 21, the United Nations places a huge amount of importance on "saving the environment". But what is rarely mentioned by the UN is who or what they believe the environment must be saved from. Here, hidden way in the back of this report, the UN explains that the guilty party is Christianity:

"...conversion to Christianity has meant an abandonment of
an affinity with the natural world for many forest dwellers,
peasants, fishers all over the world. These people followed
their own religious traditions which included setting apart
between 10 and 30 percent of the landscape as sacred groves
and ponds. Most of these people were drawn into the larger
market economy and converted to Christianity by the late 1950s.
On so converting to a religious belief system that rejects
assignment of sacred qualities to elements of nature, they began
to cut down the sacred groves to bring the land under cultivation,
as well as to market rattan and timber."

Here is the crux of the statement: on so converting to Christianity, they began cutting down "sacred" groves - which, in their minds, is the epitome of evil. Only after their conversion, did these indigenous peoples begin to harm the environment.

Notice that the report refers often to the "sacred qualities" found in nature, which they seem to claim is an undeniable fact, but which Christianity (in its ignorance) has rejected. While in the past scapegoats for the ravaged environment have come and gone, the UN has decided once and for all that Christianity is the prime culprit. Couple this with the fact that the UN is constantly looking to move forward their agenda of reviving the environment, and what do we get? Well, think of it this way: the UN already views Christianity as being at fault for the "environmental predicament", so there is already one strike against those of the Christian faith; and yet, because most Christians would argue that the environment is not one of our most pressing problems, the UN has added yet another strike. One more strike and, as they say, Christianity is officially out. What is significant is that the third strike has probably already been given to Bible-based Christians everywhere, for their refusal to appreciate the traditions of non-Christian world religions, for their "hatred" and "fanaticism", and for their fierce "intolerance". This is important especially because it implies that a world government founded upon the UN, which many New Agers and others expect, would without question be biased against Christians and their faith. We read now that all rights "may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations" - but then, what would happen if the role of the UN was switched from advice-giving to implementation? Would Christian believers that are critical of the UN's policies be tolerated? Time will certainly tell.

Now, so far I have mentioned several anti-Christian NGOs that have been awarded an accredited status at the UN. This means that they are allowed to attend UN conferences of relevance and give input, but not vote. Another group that has been given such status is the Interfaith Center of New York:

"The Interfaith Center of New York seeks to integrate the
sacred into our daily lives and to apply the wisdom and
resources of the world's religious traditions to issues of conflict
in local communities and among nations." (38)

Just to clarify, regardless of what anyone claims, God only inspired the creation of two religious faiths in all of history, and He only honors one of them to this day. As it is with all other interfaith movements, this one is anti-Christian simply because it seeks to legitimize the "wisdom and resources" of religions which oppose the gospel of Jesus Christ. And it doesn't necessarily stop there, as it should. Consider this statement made by the president of the Interfaith Center:

"Today, in recognizing the intimate connectedness of all
creation – in the revelations of contemporary physics and
the global immediacy of the internet – we the human species
simply must acknowledge and embrace the many rich sacred
traditions our sisters and brothers have uplifted in awe and
wonder throughout the ages." [emphasis mine] (39)

This statement was made by the Reverend James Parks Morton, President of the Interfaith Center of New York. It is indeed a fine demonstration of the kind of thinking that so many of those affiliated with the United Nations seem to share. We shall be returning to the theme that all people must embrace other religious traditions.

The role of the Interfaith Center in the workings of the UN is performed primarily by the Center's International and UN Affairs Department, as described in the following:

"...The International and UN Affairs Department of the Interfaith
Center is committed to fostering international interfaith activities.
We ... collaborate with the United Nations on the integration of
spiritual values into its daily activities...." (40)

Now so far in this article we have - if nothing else - seen that the UN most definitely has a spiritual arm to it, which is shown again here. What is also evident is that this spiritual arm is comprised completely of people and organizations which believe that all religions are equal. But what is even less understood about this spiritual arm is that it firmly believes that it is crucial for all people to feel the same way about religion as they do. As the above quote says from Rev. Morton says, all people "simply must acknowledge and embrace" the religious beliefs and traditions of everyone else; apparently there are no two ways about this, because there surely aren't any alternatives to this mindset given by the pastor. And that is the manner in which the United Nations approaches religion - without exception.

The International and UN Affairs Department of the Interfaith Center apparently is apparently continuing to make sure that this way of thinking and approach to religion is preserved:

"The Department is playing a key role in the development
of the World Parliament of Religions to be held in Cape
Town, South Africa in December 1999." (41)

The World Parliament of Religions which is mentioned here will be the third meeting of its kind. The first was held in in Chicago in 1893, and was the beginning of the interfaith movement. The following quote from the first World Parliament represents what is and what has always been the chief goal of the interfaith movement:

"Religion, like the white light of Heaven, has been broken
into many colored fragments by the prisms of men. One of
the objects of the Parliament of Religions has been to
change the many-colored radiance back into the white light
of heavenly truth." (42)

This quote is from the opening address of the parliament chairman Dr. John Henry Barrows. No statement could better demonstrate what the interfaith movement is really all about: its purpose is to create a united, one world religion. While some will go on and on about its purpose being the development of greater "unity in diversity", or the promotion of "tolerance and understanding" among all religions, such things do not best represent the core adherents of the movement. From the very beginning, the interfaith movement was all about finding a common ground between religions, which, when it was found, would be used to build a single religion for the whole world. What was never counted on or considered was that such unity could easily be manipulated by the forces of evil for its own purposes - namely, by Antichrist and his demonic "Hierarchy of Masters".

Which brings us now to the second World Parliament of Religions, held on the centenary of the first, in 1993. This event was also held in Chicago, from August 28 - September 4, and was attended by 6,500 persons. It was at this conference that the creation of a United Religions was proposed by Sir Sigmund Sternberg, Chair of International Council of Christians and Jews. As you may have read in the first part of this series, the United Religions idea has been adopted, and a draft of the organization's charter has been drawn up. The plan is that a final draft of the charter will be put together, and that in June of 2000 there will be an official signing of the UR Charter by representatives from all religions. At this point the UR will become a fully functioning organization, serving the purpose for religions that the UN serves for nations, and operating in a similar fashion as the UN.

And still another very important phase of this progression towards the fulfillment of biblical prophecy commenced at the 1993 World Parliament of Religions. This was the presentation and subsequent signing of the 'Declaration of the Religions for a Global Ethic', or the 'Declaration of a Global Ethic', as it is sometimes called. The document was authored by famed Catholic theologian Hans Kung. However, it appears that Kung is no longer best described as being a "Catholic" theologian, but rather as one of the globalist persuasion:

"Kung has moved beyond the narrow albeit fascinating world
of theology to applying his well-trained analytical talents to
reflect on vital arenas of human productivity including politics,
economics, and international relations." (43)

Indeed, this document hardly reflects the sentiments of a devout Romanist, but rather those of a full-fledged, initiated New Age internationalist. This we shall soon discover as we examine the infamous 'Declaration of a Global Ethic'.

It begins with an introduction, from which the following excerpt is taken:

"We affirm that there is an irrevocable, unconditional norm
for all areas of life, for families and communities, for races,
nations, and religions. There already exist ancient guidelines
for human behavior which are found in the teachings of the
religions of the world and which are the condition for a
sustainable world order." (44)

There is an abundance of significance in this one statement, maybe more than you could extract from reading it only once. Let us examine it piece by piece:

 

  • "We affirm..."; the implication being made here is that what is to follow is already a generally accepted truth, which needs no proof, but only their affirmation.
  • "...there is an irrevocable, unconditional norm for all areas of life..."; the key words here are "irrevocable" and "unconditional". The 1991 New Webster's Dictionary defines irrevocable as "incapable of being recalled or revoked". Simply put, the norm that is being discussed is set in stone - nothing can be done to either alter or invalidate it. Webster's then defines unconditional as "complete; absolute; without reservation". The norm is now said to be not only one of truth, but absolute truth. This is of interest because it is this same interfaith crowd which at other times has denounced absolutism, calling it religion's "cardinal sin" (see the report on the First Religion & Cultural Diversity Conference, from Endtime Ministries).
  • "...for families and communities, for races, nations, and religions..."; this means everybody. This norm is for all - and remember, this norm is absolute, and can not be retracted - EVER.
  • "There already exist ancient guidelines for human behavior which are found in the teachings of the religions of the world..."; from this we see that the norm for human behavior is based upon the teachings of the ancient world religions. Now a Christian such as myself would argue that verses such as Matthew 12:30 - which says that whoever is not with Christ is against Him - demonstrate that the teachings of world religions which do not believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ are deceitful, and therefore have their origins in evil.
  • "...and which are the condition for a sustainable world order."; this "sustainable world order" is revealed as being the motivation for a movement towards conformity to the teachings of the religions of the world. The foremost reason for affirming the existence of a norm for all areas of life is that this norm is an essential part of discovering and maintaining a "sustainable world order".

 

Consider this for a moment: as is stated above, the goal of this movement is a "sustainable world order". This goal can be achieved, but there is only one way: adherence to the teachings of world religions. Add that these teachings form a norm for human behavior - which is both irrevocable (incapable of alteration) and unconditional (absolute). This all brings the reader to the realization that this document not only presents an acceptable way to live, but the only way! There is an expectation built right into the framework of the document: the expectation that all people are to conform to this way of living and to this manner of belief. This type of attitude, regarding people's acceptance of superfluous religious traditions, was first shown by the quote from the president of the Interfaith Center of New York, who said that "we simply must" embrace religious traditions other than our own. So while accountability is merely implied by the introduction to the Global Ethic document, an expectation of this does in fact exist - one which has been openly admitted to:

"According to Parliament chairman David Rampage,
the Global Ethic Document ... was composed in order to
"establish an alternative framework for religion to which
people would be held accountable
(emphasis added)."
(45)

The way in which all people will be held accountable to this document remains to be seen. I would not claim, however, that it is a long shot to guess that we will all be encouraged to adhere to these "ancient guidelines for human behavior" by Maitreya, his demonic forces, and the globalist leaders of the New Roman Empire. Refusal to do so will have few consequences initially, but staying true to our Lord Jesus Christ in this fashion will in fact sow the seeds of persecution, which will sprout and grow until maturity. I need not remind you of what will take place when this happens.

Now that we understand not only the thinking behind the Global Ethic document, but also the potential implications of this thinking, we can proceed to analyze its significant portions. In the section entitled "The Principles of a Global Ethic", we read the following:

"Time and again we see leaders and members of religions
incite aggression, fanaticism, hate, and xenophobia - even
inspire and legitimize violent and bloody conflicts. . . .
We are filled with disgust." (46)

These are all charges commonly made by globalists against religious "fundamentalists". While such charges can fairly be made against some Christian groups, a dangerous tendency is to assume that all those who don't subscribe to one-world ideology are the source of the aforementioned world problems. And this is what is being done by many leaders of the New Age Movement. While her words can not speak for the entire NAM, Alice Bailey has said some things that sound very similar to the above quote from the Global Ethic document. In the same way that Hans Kung condemns religious peoples on the grounds of "fanaticism", Bailey does the same:

"Years ago I said that the war which may follow this one [WWII]
would be waged in the field of the world religions. Such a war
will not work out, however, in a similar period of extreme carnage
and blood; it will be fought largely with mental weapons and in
the world of thought; it will involve also the emotional realm, from
the standpoint of idealistic fanaticism. This inherent fanaticism ...
will fight against the appearance of the coming world religion and
the spread of esotericism. For this struggle certain of the well-
organized churches ... are already girding themselves." (47)

Here, however, it is specified who these fanatical religious leaders are: members of the Christian churches. And another point is made here as well, which is that those here accused of fanaticism are any and all Christians who oppose the "coming world religion and the spread of esotericismv, i.e. the New World Religion of Maitreya. It is likely that this is the same idea behind the above quote from the Global Ethic document - which is that "fundamentalist" Christian groups, which attempt to challenge the satanic New Age religion, are the source of our most pressing world problems. This thinking could easily justify much action being taken against people who preach what they consider to be "fanaticism" - i.e., devotion to the teachings of the Bible and opposition to the New Age Movement.

Keep in mind that whenever you see accusations being made such as those listed above (i.e., aggression, fanaticism, hate) that the way in which such words are being used may differ greatly from their true meaning. For example, someone who preaches that their faith alone can save may be accused of hatred for those of other faiths. Such accusations are made against true Christians more than often - which is important to realize, because if the United Nations decided that such accusations were valid, they might begin a great persecution against Christianity. Consider also the following excerpt from the United Nations International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights:

"Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience
and religion. . . . Freedom to manifest one's religion or beliefs may
be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are
necessary to protect public safety, order, health, or morals or the
fundamental rights and freedoms of others." (48)

Just as with the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, this document contains a self-nullifying loophole, by which a previously affirmed right (i.e., freedom of religion) does not have to be honored if a certain governing body does not wish it so. If Christianity were deemed to be a religion which inspired aggression, fanaticism, and hatred, or one which legitimizes "violent and bloody conflicts", a government could easily choose not to respect the right to practice that religion. Christianity could easily be deemed a threat to all of the things listed above: public safety, order, health, morals, and the fundamental rights and freedoms of others. The works of Alice Bailey and her disciple Benjamin Creme have already proven this, because they both seek to indict opposition to the NAM as a major threat, using accusations of fanaticism and hatred as proof. But even more significantly than this if the fact that many powerful globalists and officials of the UN are considerably close to thinking the same.

Turning again to the Global Ethic document, we read the following in Section II:"Every form of egoism should be rejected: All selfishness,
whether individual or collective, whether in the form of class
thinking, racism, nationalism, or sexism. We condemn these
because they prevent humans from being authentically human."
[emphasis mine] (49)

Granted, all the things listed here are problems - but we must question what exactly do they mean by "authentically human". Isn't it degradation to claim that certain individuals are not humans in the whole sense? It certainly is, and as we shall continue to see, the accusation of not being "authentically human" is brought against many different kinds of people throughout this document. It is especially important to note this, because in the United States and in many other places it is perfectly legal to murder unborn babies on these same grounds - which is that they are not people in the whole sense. By merely advocating the classification of certain people as unauthentic humans - a classification which, when applied to the unborn, can mean their death - this document is coming awful close to advocating a similar treatment.

In this same section we read:

"Self-determination and self-realization are thoroughly legitimate
so long as they are not separated from human self-responsibility
and global responsibility, that is, from responsibility for fellow
humans and for the planet Earth." (50)

Again, let us turn to Webster's so that we might process exactly what this statement is saying:

"self-determination: free will; right of a people or a nation to work
out its own problems and destiny, free from interference from without"

"self-realization: fulfillment by oneself of the possibilities of one's
character or personality"

The first question that must be asked is, since when has the legitimacy of either of these things been in question? The quoted statement supposes that both of these can be violated by the state (or some other earthly institution) if it chooses to do so. Truly, this is an issue of national sovereignty. God is sovereign over all creation, but He chose at Babel to separate the peoples and nations from each other, and in doing this He gave them each their own national sovereignty and free will to follow Him if they chose. But in the above statement from the Global Ethic document, we see an attempt to not only impose restrictions on free will (which only God can do), but with it an attempt to invade the God-given sovereignty of each nation.

As seems obvious to me, the message being sent here is anti-biblical in every way. First of all, good Christians do not follow their own free will in the first place, but rather God's will for them. Recognizing this, let us ponder for a moment: God has a will for us, which is revealed to us in the Bible and through prayer; we, as good Christians, choose to do His will; but then in comes these people from organizations like the United Nations, the United Religions, and so on, who interpret our doing of God's will as being our following of our own free will - and they do not like it one bit. Why? Because to do God's will DEMANDS that we are separated from so-called global responsibility and responsibility for the environment, etc. And why is this? Because, if we accept their definitions, we also accept "global responsibility" is quite worldly, and therefore is to be avoided. If we sought to serve man's worldly interpretation of what is right and wrong, and what is to be done and not to be done, we would be seeking to please man, which is frowned upon by God:

"...they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God."
(John 12:43, KJV)

"For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please
men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ."
(Galatians 1:10, KJV)

But for following God's will in this way, we are condemned.

If the statutes of this document were to be enforced, by the UN or UR, true Christians would quickly find persecution for their carrying out of God's will. You see, when we would do God's will, it would naturally be interpreted by the godless as our doing of our own free will - which, by their definition, would be illegitimate, because it would be separated from the global/human responsibility to which all would be held accountable. This is a blueprint for totalitarian world government, one which, in enforcing the statutes of this document, would no doubt raise great persecution against those who refuse to conform to the "global norm".

And there is still much more to the Global Ethic that must be examined. In Section III, "Irrevocable Directives", we read this:

"To be authentically human in the spirit of our great religious
and ethical traditions means that in public as well as in private
life we must be concerned for others and ready to help. . . .
Every people, every race, every religion must show tolerance
and respect - indeed high appreciation - for every other
."
[emphasis mine] (51)

Again, this is the same attitude as previously seen in the president of the Interfaith Center's quote. The key word here is "must": you must show tolerance, you must respect, etc. But as we know, their definitions of tolerance and respect are incompatible with those of most faithful Christians. Tolerance by the definition of the globalists means that you can not:

 

  • spread the gospel, because such an act promotes absolutism (which is evil when it is based on the Bible), and is viewed as an attempt to impose views on others
  • criticize deceptive religions or religious beliefs, because all religions are viewed as being equal; an exception is made, of course, for faiths that are considered to be "fundamentalist" in nature - these may be criticized freely

 

And in addition to these two restrictions, you must demonstrate "high appreciation" for all other religions. Yet the question remains - what if we choose not to be obedient to their demands? It really seems like the above statement should have an "or else" attached - so the question remains, is there an "or else"? Absolutely. The statement begins by saying that "to be authentically human" we must do something - and that something is that we must, among other things, show "high appreciation" for all religious traditions. This is the "or else" - we must demonstrate this high appreciation OR ELSE we are not "authentically human". Since being a Bible-based Christian and following the guidelines set forth in this document at the same time is not possible, we must deduce that in the mind of the globalists, all true Christians are not "authentically human". Again, this is the most important thing to fully understand about the globalist agenda: it opposes not only biblical Christianity, but Bible-based Christians as well. It refers to Christians in terms that have long been used to provide justification for the murder of so many people:

"Students of 20th century totalitarian movements are quite
familiar with the common fate of those found to be less than
"authentically" human." (52)

But even more disturbing than this is that the same terms used to describe the victims of the Stalin and Hitler regimes are still used today, not only when referring to Christians (as above), but also to describe unborn children. Not only this, but unborn children are described in such a way that others can easily be deemed worthy of extermination on basis of the precedent which has been set by the U.S. Supreme Court:

"The Supreme Court decision [Roe vs. Wade] was based …
on [the] criterion [that] the unborn child is not a person in any
"meaningful" or "whole" sense.... The Court did not conclude
that "meaningful" or "whole" personhood begins at birth; it said
only that it does not begin before that time. The distinction is
profoundly important, because the Court's vague and open-ended
definition supplies the constitutional precedent for dehumanizing
other segments of humanity by defining their lives as meaningless
and incomplete." (53)

More on this will be discussed in the next part of this series, but I wanted to make sure we realize now that the threat of a Holocaust of Christians, Jews and others is real, and not something which students of biblical prophecy have invented to corroborate the theory that the endtimes are here.

The next "Irrevocable Directive" is as follows:

"…no one has the right to use her or his possessions without
concern for the needs of society and Earth." (54)

Again, whose definition are we going by here? A Christian might say that the greatest need of society is for it to be rescued from the ominous direction of its course by the simplicity and truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. However, the needs of society are unquestionably quite different in the mind of globalist; and the needs of the earth can not be reconciled with biblical Christianity either. I have never been given the impression from the scriptures that the earth "needs" anything. And while God's word promises that He will see to the destruction of those "which destroy the earth" (Rev 11:18), it also says that "earth shall pass away" (Matt 24:35) and that God will put a new earth in its place (Rev 21). Therefore, while we are not to misuse the earth and its resources, we are nowhere told that it is would ever need anything. God's earth has always been perfect, as is all His creation, and we can be assured that it will last until the "day of judgment" on which it will burned up with fire (2 Pet 3:7, 10).

We also must question exactly what limitations might be put on the use of our possessions. The vagueness of this statement implies that the nature of the limitations would not be predetermined, but would be decided on by whoever is involved in the implementation of the rule. This could easily be used to justify the confiscation of Bibles and other Christian literature, which has already been deemed to be "intolerant", "hateful", and "bigoted" by much of the UN's global regime. Keep in mind that this statement is not merely a suggestion. It does not say, "we should all use our possessions with the needs of society and the earth in mind" - it plainly says that we have no right to use our possessions in any other way. By saying such things, the document clearly expects that there will be some sort of action taken to implement these rules and statutes, because otherwise a redefinition of which rights are to be preserved would be unnecessary.

In part 3 of Section III, "Commitment to a Culture of Tolerance and a Life of Truthfulness", the following is said:

"Numberless women and men of all regions and religions strive
to lead lives of honesty and truthfulness. Nevertheless, all over
the world we find endless lies, and deceit, swindling and hypocrisy,
ideology and demagoguery:" (55)

Listed are politicians and business people who use lies as a means to success, mass media which spreads propaganda, scientists who have sold out to "political programs or to economic interest groups", and researchers who "justify research which violates fundamental ethical values". All of these without much question fit into "deceit, swindling and hypocrisy" grouping quoted above. However, the final category of people who apparently are not living a "life of truthfulness" is as follows:

"Representatives of religions who dismiss other religions as
of little value and who preach fanaticism and intolerance
instead of respect and understanding."

Once again it is being stressed that all religions are to be appreciated - and that all who don't have this appreciation are intolerant fanatics. We then read this:

"In the great ancient religious and ethical traditions of humankind
we find the directive: You shall not lie! Or in positive terms: Speak
and act truthfully! Let us reflect anew on the consequences of this
ancient directive: No woman or man, no institution, no state or
church or religious community has the right to speak lies to other
humans."

This document is flat out calling you a liar if you have decided that other religions are "of little value". It claims to know that all religions are equally truthful and of equal value, and therefore anyone who thinks otherwise is a liar. And not only are such people liars, but they have no right to speak such lies, and deserve punishment:

"This is especially true ... for representatives of religion. When
br>they stir up prejudice, hatred, and enmity towards those of
different belief, or even incite or legitimize religious wars, they
deserve the condemnation of humankind and the loss of their
adherents."

The measures being advocated here are incredible, simply because they are completely unprecedented. Never before have representatives of religion had to have their followers taken away because they were preaching something which was viewed as being hateful. Granted, people who truly legitimize religious wars are wrong for doing so, but what is dangerous is that this kind of suggestion could very easily be abused, with undeserving religious leaders being stripped of their adherents because of a bias against them by a ruling faction.

Finally, if you have had any doubt of the New Age influence on this document, you should consider the following statement:

"Historical experience demonstrates the following: Earth cannot be
changed for the better unless we achieve a transformation in the
consciousness of individuals and in public life." (56)

Actually, there is no historical record of this - it is merely a ploy to give credibility the tenets of the New World Religion, which I outlined in the previously article in this series. A "transformation in the consciousness" is just another way of referring to an evolution of consciousness, which many New Agers point to as being the goal for all of humanity in the coming new age. Had they said that historical experience demonstrates that a change of heart is necessary if the world is to be changed for the better, then there would be no problem. However, this is stated using plain New Age buzz-terminology, which shows once and for all that this document is a product of New Age, demon-inspired ideology.

Of those that signed the document, 44 were representatives of Christianity - (57), which is a clear illustration of the level of apostasy to which so many of the church leaders have fallen, through New Age infiltration in the church. Among those "Christian" delegates that signed, one was Robert Muller. Others that signed were Buddhists, Hindus, neo-Pagans, Zoroastrians, a Taoist, and a Theosophist.

One final thing that I must note in regards to the Global Ethic document is how the mass media is apparently receiving the New Age interfaith movement exemplified at the 1993 World Parliament of Religions. Gannett, America's largest newspaper chain, has demonstrated that the mass media is in fact completely behind this movement - and is willing to help spread the "good news". Gannett, owns such newspapers as USA Today, Florida Today, the Knoxville Journal, the El Paso Times, Tuscon Citizen, the Pacific Daily News, the Idaho Statesman, and the Oakland Tribune - as well as more than 100 others and a number of TV stations. Shortly after the signing of the Declaration of a Global Ethic, USA Today invited readers to send away to the Gannett headquarters for a free copy of it. Now while USA Today - and most newspapers in general - usually will not play favorites with the different religions, this time Gannett just could not hide their partiality. And yet the fact that this document is not merely an interfaith declaration, but rather one that is better classified as New Age, shows that the ideology of the NAM is not just acceptable to the mass media, but has in fact been deemed worthy of its support. Aggressive environmentalist and UN-ally Ted Turner, with his network CNN, is another example of this.

As a result of their endorsement of the NAM now, we can assume that the godless mass media will be blown away by the appearance and declaration of Maitreya to the world. Consequently, they will influence many to accept him as someone who really has only the world's best interests in mind.

Shortly after the appearance of Maitreya, a world government will begin to form, as will be detailed in future articles. After this formation, the UN, who already subscribes to the brand of ideology shown by the Global Ethic document, will attempt to implement their anti-Christian agenda using the principles of the document and others. What this will lead to is a Holocaust of those who oppose the new rule of Maitreya the Anti-Christ, following a short period of false peace. Mass martyrdoms of Christians are prophesied of by Christ in the Olivet Discourse, and in Revelation, and we can observe that the way is being prepared for this to come about, by the labeling of Bible-based Christendom as not "authentically human".

As is mentioned above, a third Parliament of the World's Religions is planned for December of this year in Capetown, South Africa. We shall certainly have to pay careful attention to what happens there, because it very well could give us an indication of how close we are to Maitreya's declaration and to the New World Religion. One possibility is that the globalists might draw up guidelines for people's accountability to the "alternative framework for religion" which is outlined in the Global Ethic document. Another thing we can expect is Robert Muller's presentation of a "comprehensive detailed plan" for a "world-wide spiritual Renaissance" - (58). What this actually means is anyone's guess, but chances are good he will not be promoting biblical Christian spirituality. Chances are also good that his plan will involve the future United Religions - which he has been a strong supporter of. So while the UN may not yet have the power to dictate directly regarding religious matters, the UR may in fact be given such powers. Many leaders of religion may recognize the UR as being for the "common good", and they may allow themselves to be directed by the UR in various matters - such as in dealing with "extremist" groups. Such dealings might at first mean only advice giving - as with the UN - but soon could be turned into implementation. And once this "global ethic" is implemented, a campaign to weed out all "fundamentalist" groups will begin. Obedience to the global norm will be demanded - which means abandoning our support of any absolute truth; this includes belief in the biblical Christian doctrine of salvation by Christ alone. But we must resist this at all costs! If we don't resist from the very beginning, we risk later falling in with the rest of the world in worshiping the Antichrist.

I pray that this article has helped you to better understand the endtimes which we are in, and my hope is that it has also helped you to better understand what you need to do to be ready. My hope is by accepting that we may have to face future martyrdom, we can begin to take additional measures to make sure that our faiths will be preserved; this acceptance should never incite panic or fear. If we understand that our bodies are merely impermanent temples for the Holy Spirit, and that God is glorified greatly through our patient acceptance of our fate, it should become easier to understand why God would ever have decided such a fate for us. All we can do is become stronger in the faith, and closer to God and Christ. I would recommend memorizing some of the scriptures, because Bibles will undoubtedly be confiscated once the Great Tribulation begins. But other than spiritual preparation, no other is needed. Keep in mind these passages:

"And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes
are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old
upon thy foot." (Deuteronomy 29:5, KJV)

"...he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened
the doors of heaven, And had rained down manna upon them
to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven. Man did eat
angels' food: he sent them meat to the full. . . . So they did eat,
and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;"
(Psalms 78:23-25, 29, KJV)

I have some confidence that God will sustain us and provide for us in the same way that He did for the Israelites during those 40 years in the wilderness; our 3 1/2 years "in the wilderness" will be nothing compared to that. Consider also Christ's parable in Matthew 6:25-33, where He stresses that what we must first strive for is our spiritual readiness. If we are as spiritually prepared as possible, then we can be assured that God will not allow us to be tested beyond our strength (1 Cor 10:13), regardless of what situation we find ourselves in. We are not to worry about anything but our spiritual preparation for the tribulation to come (although other preparation, such as mental, can be a part of spiritual preparation; I hope to write about this sometime). Let us grow in the Spirit together and benefit in our everyday lives from the spiritual preparations we are making for the challenging times ahead.

Thank you very much for reading, and may the God of Peace bless you and strengthen you in all things.

"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels,
nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be
able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
(Romans 8:38-39)

 


 

Did you know that there is a God? This is more than belief. Be assurred that this is an absolute truth, one which I myself did not always embrace, but which I now know is real. There is a God, and He is deeply interested in our lives.

Maybe you don't believe this. Maybe you are saying, "I don't believe in the God of the Bible, or in any other god either." But whether you believe or not, you are actively serving a god every day of your life. You see, whatever thing you give the adoration and attention in your life, that is your god. Whatever thing you go to as a relief or support in tough times, that is your god. This is just reality.

You may find that this thing that you go to never quite fulfills you. It may make you happy for a time, but afterwards you are left only with emptiness, until you experience that thing again. Maybe this thing is a person, or a habit, or a possession. Maybe it is music or some other form of media. Whatever it is, it can not fulfill you, as you probably already have sensed. So, you must periodically move on to another thing. But every new thing is just another false god in your life, and it won't fulfill you either.

The reason for all this is that there is no substitute for the true and living God. We were created to have a relationship with God, and no other thing could ever fill the place inside of us that was created to experience Him and be fulfilled by Him alone. No matter how hard we try we will never be able to put something else into the place in our heart which was made only to fit God. We think that there are substitutes, and we try different ones in vain, but deep down we realize THERE ARE NONE. Trying to live a balanced life without God is trying to do the impossible.

Fortunately, a relationship with God has nothing to do with condemnation for our rejection of Him or for any of our shortcomings. Our relationship with God is a relationship of love. He has loved us, and loves us at this very moment. But the sin of man may be blinding you from seeing this truth. It is this sinfulness that you need salvation from right now.

God, through His love, has made a way for you to come to Him. This is the only way that God made for us to come to Him, because it is the perfect way, and He did not need to make another. This way, the perfect means of our of reconciliation to Him, is that God sent His only Son Jesus to save us from our sins. You may think you know all about this, but it is nothing until you have experienced it. The Bible tells us that Christ knew no sin, but died for our sins, so that His righteousness might be transferred to our account. We are without fault before God when we receive Jesus Christ as Savior. This is what we must do to find peace and fulfillment here on earth, and eternal life in heaven.

God will not barge in unwelcomed, though. He can not force you out of your sin, but He desires that with your free will you might make a decision for Him. God is trying to get your attention right now! Please open your heart to Him in prayer. Invite Christ to be the Savior and Lord of your life. Ask God for forgiveness for your sins and confess to Him that you can not do it on your own, nor can you come to Him any other way than through Jesus. Read the Word of God, the Bible, and allow God to change your life through the relationship you have with Him. Acknowledge Him, and you will find that He is what you have been looking for all along.

"...if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and
believe in your heart that God raised him from the
dead, you will be saved. ... For, "Everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:9, 13)

Please E-mail me if you have made a decision for Christ after reading this message. I would like to give you some help or answer any questions you may have, so that you may begin a fruitful walk with Him. God bless you!

Alice Bailey

Reba Parker and Timothy Oliver

Founder of: Lucis Trust, and the Lucis Trust Publishing Co., 1922; the Arcane School, 1923; World Goodwill, 1932.

Official Publications: The Great Invocation (common prayer) and twenty-four other works published in 50 languages by the Lucis Trust Publishing Company.

Organizational Structure: Lucis Trust has over 6,000 active members with headquarters located in the United States, Germany, Great Britain, Holland, and Switzerland.

Other Names: Lucifer Trust (original name of Lucis Trust).

HISTORY

On June 30, 1895 at the age of fifteen, Alice Bateman had a memorable experience. "I was sitting in the drawing room reading. The door opened and in walked a tall man dressed in European clothes...but with a tall turban on his head.... He told me there was some work that it was planned that I could do in the world but that it would entail my changing my disposition very considerably;"1 In 1915, Alice met two English women living in Pacific Grove, California, who introduced her to Theosophy and Helena Blavatsky. Through her studies of Blavatsky's Secret Doctrines, she realized the man she met at age 15 was Master KH (Koot Hoomi). "I discovered that he was not the Master Jesus, as I had naturally suspected....I have worked for Him, ever since I was fifteen years old and I am now one of the superior disciples of his groupĺor as it is called esotericallyĺin his ashram."2

 In 1917, Alice moved to Hollywood to be near the headquarters of the Theosophical Society at Krotona. Her first job at the center was as a vegetarian cook, scrubbing the bottom of garbage pails. A divorce from Walter Evans was soon followed by marriage to Foster Bailey, a lawyer who devoted his life to ancient wisdom.3 In the fall of 1919 Alice had an encounter with still another Master, who guided her for thirty years. By 1922, Bailey started the Lucis Trust Publishing Company, in 1923, the Arcane School, and by 1932, the World Goodwill. Between the years 1919 and 1949, she produced twenty-four books, including an autobiography; nineteen of these books were supposed to have been written by her Tibetan Master, DK (Djwhal Khul).

 Regarding Master DK's communications, Alice Bailey comments, "I remain in full control of my senses of perception.... I simply listen and take down the words that I hear and register the thoughts which are dropped one by one into my brain.... I have never changed anything that the Tibetan has ever given to me.... I do not always understand what is given. I do not always agree. But I record it all honestly and then discover it does make sense and evokes intuitive response."4

 Alice Bailey spent the majority of her years working out what she referred to as "The Plan." As a result of her works, many other groups have been birthed or influenced. Some of these groups are: the Church Universal and Triumphant, the Tara Center, and the Robert Muller School, to name a few. They continue to promulgate Alice Bailey's message of "world peace," the divinity of all mankind, the unity of all religions, and service to mankind. This once devoted Sunday School teacher and missionary worker was finally renowned as a prolific author of occult writings, and the mother, some would say, of the modern form of the New Age Movement.  

Lucis Trust Publishing Company

The word "Lucis" comes directly from the name Lucifer, which means "the one who brings light," or, "light bearer." Webster's New Twenty-first Century Dictionary says: "Lucifer: light bringing, Satan, as especially the leader of the revolt of the angels before his fall." Not surprisingly, Lucis Trust's first name was Lucifer Trust, but was later changed due to controversy.5 The purpose of Lucis Trust is the establishing of a "New World Order." Lucis Trust's teachings have been translated into fifty languages. They have also published a "common prayer," formally called "The Great Invocation." Under the facade of love and goodwill, this dangerous New Age Organization lures many to the philosophy and doctrines of the occult. Today it has over 6,000 active members, with headquarters located in the United States, Germany, Great Britain, Holland and Switzerland.  

The Arcane School

Headquartered in New York, with centers also in Europe, the school's graduates have frequently become leaders in the New Age Movement. They form a part of what they call The New Group of World Servers, men and women working in all walks of life, preparing the world for the New Age. Bailey described the Arcane School as "non-sectarian, non-political, but deeply international in its thinking. Service is its keynote. Its members can work in any sect and any political party provided that they remember that all paths lead to God and that the welfare of the one humanity governs all their thinking. Above everything else, ...a student is taught that the souls of men are one....It is a school wherein true occult obedience is developed....They are taught... prompt obedience to the dictates of their own soul. As the voice of that soul gets increasingly familiar it will eventually make them members of the Kingdom of God and bring them face to face with Christ."6  

World Goodwill

World Goodwill is an organization that claims to be preparing the way for a one-world religion and a one-world government. World Goodwill works closely with the United Nations. It maintains headquarters in the cities of New York, London and Geneva. The group publishes literature as well as conducts symposiums related to its goals, which are consistent with those of Lucis Trust. Much of its public literature shows no signs of its occultic background nature, making it the perfect vehicle for attracting into its New Age influence people who would reject overtly religious or occult philosophy.  

DOCTRINE

God: Bailey's views on God seem confused. At times her writing appears to assume there is a personal God. Yet overall, the tenor of her writing is along the lines of all pantheists, that all is God (God Immanent), and that God is an impersonal energy force (God Transcendant).7 Her writings betray deep misunderstanding of the God of the Bible, but adamant feelings against what she thinks Him to be.

 "Christianity has emphasized immortality but has made eternal happiness dependent upon acceptance of a theological dogma: Be a true professing Christian and live in a somewhat fatuous heaven or refuse to be an accepting Christian...and go to an impossible hellĺa hell growing out of the theology of the Old Testament and its presentation of a God, full of hate and jealousy."8

Jesus: For Bailey, Jesus was only one of many Ascended Masters. He was not the one and only Son of God. "For decades, the reappearance of the Christ, the Avatar, has been anticipated by the faithful in both hemispheres, not only the Christian faithful, but by those who look for Maitreya and for the Boddhisattva as well as those who expect the Imam Mahdi."9

Reincarnation: According to this esoteric doctrine, one returns to this world, or plane, living multiple lives, until one gets it right. This is a result of Karma, the law of cause and effect. Finally one is reabsorbed into the universal whole, God. "Death is 'a touch of the soul which is too strong for the fragile body': it is a call from divinity that brooks no denial; it is the voice of the inner spiritual identity saying: Return to your centre or source, for awhile and reflect upon the experiences undergone and the lessons learnt until the time comes when you return to earth for another cycle of learning, of progress and of enrichment."10

Salvation: Alice Bailey believed that salvation is the moment you realize you have a divine nature. "We have regarded half the world as lost and only the Christian believer as saved, yet all the time Christ has told us that love is the way into the kingdom, and that the fact of the presence of divinity in each of us makes us eligible for that kingdom."11

Man: Alice Bailey did not believe that man is a created being, separate from, and owing his existence to, the transcendant Creator; rather mankind itself and all individuals are expressions or manifestations of the divine, and thus themselves divine. "Before we can enter upon the study of Ageless Wisdom and take up the consideration of the science of some unfoldment it is essential that we grasp the fact of our divinity."12

The Church: Some of Alice Bailey's statements may seem favorable toward Christianity: "Christianity cannot be attacked; it is an expression - in essence, if not yet entirely factual - of the love of God, immanent in his created universe."13 However, in such statements it is always Christianity as she defined it, of which she speaks. On the other hand some of her most contemptuous words were for the Christian Church and Christian doctrines: "The Church today is the tomb of Christ and the stone of theology has been rolled to the door of the sepulchre."14  

BIBLICAL RESPONSE

God: A passage frequently cited to establish the Deity of the Holy Spirit, Acts 5:3-5, makes it equally clear that God is personal. He can be lied to. How does one lie to an impersonal energy force? In Acts 13:2 God speaks by the Holy Spirit and expresses His will. Again, this is not logically attributable to an impersonal energy or force.

Jesus: Alice Bailey could call Jesus God in human flesh, because she believed every person is God incarnate. Jesus just manifested that fact more perfectly than the rest of us. The Bible, however, makes it clear there is only one God (Deut. 4:35, 39; Isa. 44:6), that only God saves (Isa. 45:18, 21-23), and that Jesus Christ is the God who saves (Acts 4:12; also cf. Isa. 45:21-23 with Phil. 2:5-11, in the light of Isa. 42:8 & 44:11).

Man: The Bible teaches man was made in the image of God (Gen. 1:26), not that he is a manifestation or extension of God. It also says man is so far separate from God that God could regret having made man (Gen.6:5-6). It teaches man is sinful from birth, i.e. by nature (Ps. 51:5). If men are God then God is sinful. If God is perfect and without sin then men are not God or a part of God.

Reincarnation: Jesus did speak of being born again (Jn. 3:3), something Alice Bailey and many people in the New Age movement seize upon to justify their doctrine of reincarnation. However, Jesus made it plain He was not speaking of another birth into a physical body, but of a spiritual birth which takes place in this life and affects our eternity (Jn. 3:5,6). The Bible teaches we have only one lifetime in which to make those decisions which will affect our eternal destiny (Heb. 9:27)

Salvation: The Bible teaches that man is sinful, and God hates sin. Man stands in need of someone to save him from God's just wrath against his sin. God loves man, but cannot save him in any manner that denies His own essential justice and righteousness. In infinite wisdom, God Himself provided the sacrifice necessary to appease His wrath against sin (Rom. 3:23-25) and the righteousness necessary to fulfill the perfect standard of His law (Rom. 4:4-6, 21-23; 5:17, 19; Phil. 3:8, 9). All this is found in Jesus Christ and no other (Acts 4:12; 1 Tim. 1:15; 2:5, 6).

The Church: Christians agree with Bailey that the true church is not a visible institution, and that all such organizations, being the work of man, are to some extent corrupted. However, Jesus said that His true church would never be overcome (Matt. 16:18). This could not be so apart from, among other things, true doctrine. The truth has survived through the ages, including the millenia during which no Christian knew or professed any such gospel as Alice Bailey's. Far from seeing the church as Christ's tomb, the Bible says it is His body (Rom. 12:4, 5; 1 Cor. 12:12-14, 27). The doctrine established for the church, far from being a stone over Christ's sepulchre, was written down and preserved in Scripture for the benefit of the church (Rom. 15:4; Eph. 4:14-16; 2 Tim. 3:16, 17). The Bible teaches that God would receive glory in the church throughout all generations (Eph. 3:21) and that Jesus would be with it to the end of the world (Matt. 28:20). 
  
  

New Age influence on the UN

In the above quote from Spec. New it is mentioned that he never had taken an oath besides the one about defending the United States. An oath to the United Nations, which these soldiers may have been forced to take, is in fact required of the United Nations Secretariat. I quote the oath verbatim:

"I solemnly swear to exercise in all loyalty, discretion, and
conscience, the functions entrusted to me as an international
civil servant of the United Nations, to discharge these functions
and regulate my conduct with the interests of the United Nations
only in view
, and not to seek or accept instructions in regard to
the performance of my duties from any government or other
authority
external to the Organization." [emphasis mine]

If you are looking for proof that the United Nations is not just godless, but is actually hostile towards God, then you have it in this oath. Here the UN makes it clear that when serving them, only their interests matter, and only their instructions are to be followed. This oath is taken over EVERY OTHER AUTHORITY, which of course includes God. The very requirement of soldiers to take this oath is simply ridiculous, because it is actually a violation of the UN's Universal Declaration on Human Rights, Article 19, which states that:

"Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression;
this right includes the freedom to hold opinions without
interference...."

I think that it is safe to say that if it is someone's opinion (or belief) that God's Word supersedes all other authorities - including the UN - and then the UN comes in and forces that person to take an oath over God, then they are responsible for causing an "interference" with that person's belief, and therefore they have violated Article 19. HOWEVER, the authors of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights made sure to provide their organization a convenient loophole, in the form of Article 29:

"These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised
contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations."

This statement refers to all the rights that were previously defined as belonging to all people everywhere. Therefore, the right to freedom of opinion, and even freedom of religion (Article 18) are void in the face of what the UN dictates. According to this supposed "victory for human rights", certain (if not all) God-given rights are not to be exercised by those who disagree with the UN's purposes and principles. And it is the very nature of these purposes and principles which prove that the freedom to practice Christianity will have no place in the New World Order.

What is interesting about the UN's tactic of including a self-nullifying clause in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights is that the same tactic is also employed by Communist Vietnam - specifically for the purpose of persecuting the Christian church. Article 1 of a decree on religious activities states that "discrimination based on beliefs and religion is prohibited." However, in the same way as the UN's Declaration on Human Rights, this document includes a provision which renders Article 1 meaningless:

"...Article 5 of the decree promises that any act "which destroys
the unity of the people, which harms the sound cultural base of
the nation, and superstitious activities will all be dealt with
according to the law." (24)

Vietnamese authorities cite Article 5 in punishing Christian believers. In this same way, the UN could cite Article 29 if they were to raise a persecution against the church; they could simply claim that professing Christians are exercising their right to freedom of religion in a way "contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations". To corroborate this prospect, evidence will now be presented which proves that the UN is heavily influenced by New Age teachings, and is, as consequence, strongly opposed to Bible-based (or "fundamentalist") Christianity. It is the UN's desire that Christianity be weakened, and eventually eradicated, because it is hindering the declaration of the New Age "Christ" Maitreya - whom the UN wholly endorses.

All of what is being spoken about relates to the larger picture of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. In regards to the UN acceptance of New Age teachings, which I will be showing shortly, we must keep in mind this verse:

"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;" (1 Timothy 4:1, KJV)

Seeing as we are in the "latter times", we would expect nothing less than a new kind of religion, inspired by demons, and having much influence. The Holy Spirit inspired Paul to prophesy about the New Age Movement when he wrote of these "doctrines of devils", which would gain much influence before the return of Jesus Christ. We shall see just how widespread the influence of this demon-doctrine really has become in the remainder of this article.

As I have said before, I believe that a great deal of Biblical prophecy - i.e. those about the beast of Rev. 13 (Anti-Christ) - will soon be fulfilled by a New Age teacher known as Maitreya, or "the Christ". The gradual emergence of this man has been documented for many years in the magazine Share International, and in the books of its chief editor Benjamin Creme. I have in this article shared several quotes in which Creme endorses the United Nations - all of which are evidence for my theory that the UN is under the control of demonic forces. However, evidence establishing a direct connection between the UN and the antichrist Maitreya exists as well. The following is an excerpt from the contents page of Share International magazine:

"Share International is published monthly, except bi-monthly in
January/February and July/August of each year, by SHARE
INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION, a non-profit, non-governmental
organization in association with the Department of Public
Information at the United Nations."

Surprising? Not really. We should not be at all surprised to discover that the UN, who is building the world government of Antichrist, not only supports Maitreya and his teachings, but is helping to distribute his satanic doctrine as well. After all, many UN officials and other affiliates are New Age dabblers and strong supporters of the NAM. Let us take a moment to examine some of these folks:

Robert Muller is the former Assistant Secretary-General to three UN Secretary-Generals, Chancellor of the UN University, and a devotee of Alice Bailey. He has written the book 'New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality', and has had articles published in Share International magazine. Muller is a strong supporter of not only theosophy, but also of the Gaia movement. If you are not familiar with the Cult of Gaia, it is a movement which believes that the earth has a spirit or planetary brain, which can interact with people through spiritual experiences. "Gaia" is the name given to the earth spirit, after the earth goddess of ancient Greek and Roman mythology. Members of this cult claim that Gaia has been very angry with our environmental abuses in the last century, and therefore we all must take extreme measures to save the planet, else she causes more disasters. Muller makes note of his support for the Gaia hypothesis in the following statement:

"We thought at the time that the sun was turning around the
earth until we learned from Copernicus that it was not true.
Now we're learning that perhaps this planet has not been
created for humans, but that humans have been created for
the planet. We hear now of the Gaia hypothesis, of the
interdependence of all inert and living matter, that we are part
and parcel of a living planetary organism. . . . We have now a
world brain which determines what can be dangerous or mortal
for the planet: the United Nations and its agencies, and
innumberable (sic) groups and networks around the world, are
part of the brain." (25)

Here Muller makes it clear what he thinks of the hypothesis: it is absolutely correct! He believes Gaia to be just as much a fact as the earth's revolution around the sun. He also believes that the UN plays a very important part in the movement to save the earth/Gaia - a movement that he has no doubt helped greatly from the various positions he has held at the UN over the years. Additionally, his statement that "humans have been created for the planet" reminds me of what Paul said in Romans about some certain heathen Gentiles, who "changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator" (Rom 1:25). And consider also what Paul revealed shortly after this statement:

"They know God's decree, that those who practice such things
deserve to die--yet they not only do them but even applaud
others who practice them." (Romans 1:32)

This could not be more true than in regards to the United Nations: not only do they themselves serve the created earth instead of the one true God, but they applaud and support those who would do the same. And yet, as with all other servants of evil, "their end will match their deeds" (2 Cor 11:15).

U Thant, the late Burmese Marxist who professed Buddhism and was the third Secretary-General of the UN. It was under his direction that Robert Muller and UN consultant Donald Keys started "The Planetary Citizens", a New Age activist group which is focused on spreading the "planetary consciousness" gospel to both New Agers and the general public. The group to this day is an NGO (non-governmental organization) with "consultative status" at the UN.

Donald Keys, a UN consultant who co-founded The Planetary Citizens and is the group's president. His political activities have been extremely influential with United Nations delegations, and he has written a book, 'Earth at Omega', which is a standard in the department of New Age ecology.

Dr. Norman Myers, who has been an adviser to the UN, the World Bank, and the U.S. State Department. He is one of the many established authorities on the Gaian religion of earth-worship, and he has authored the book 'The Gaia Atlas of Future Worlds'. His book uses many of the now-common "one-world" buzz-words to make its points, including statements encouraging all humans to be united in the "Gaian Community".

Sri Chinmoy, a New Age guru who runs the UN's Meditation Room. He has written 30+ books including 'Death and Reincarnation: Eternity's Voyage' and 'The Garland of Nation-Souls: Complete Talks at the United Nations'. He claims that "the United Nations is the chosen instrument of God", which carries "the banner of God's inner vision and outer manifestation." (26)

Mohammed Ramadan, president of the UN's Society for Enlightenment and Transformation. As William Norman Grigg wrote in his book 'Freedom on the Altar', Ramadan "has opened the UN's headquarters to all varieties of "spiritual sages" - mystics, "channelers," UFO enthusiasts, and like" - (27). Grigg also shares a quote from the Boston Globe which states the following:

"From a small, basement headquarters at the United Nations,
Ramadan and other spiritual seekers have established several
metaphysical associations with the intentions of radiating karmic
energy into the upper reaches of UN headquarters, where
Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali and other eminent
diplomats work." (28)

The work of this bizarre New Age group is apparently just the kind of "enlightenment" that the UN feels comfortable supporting. While traditional religions are criticized by the UN, as we shall see later, channelers and mystics have no problem fitting in at the United Nations.

Keith Suter, an Australian "Christian" spokesman for the Uniting Church, who has has held executive positions at the UN and with the New Age organization Friends of the Earth, in addition to his membership in the Club of Rome. In his book "Global Change: Armageddon and the New World Order" he writes that:

"[There is a] need to make peace with the planet. Humankind
increases its chances of lasting if it puts the environment FIRST.
Such a preoccupation would be in accordance with what I see
the Bible as teaching." (p. 343)

Which Bible would that be? The same Bible which condemns those who"serve the creature more than the Creator"? Anyway, throughout the book, Suter quotes from New Age and pro-NWO writings many times, while referring to the Gaia hypothesis as being valid. He is just another one of the many ravenous wolves in sheep's clothing out there, which have come "not sparing the flock" (Acts 20:29).

Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, who may become the next head of the UN. Robinson is a recognized member of the feminist movement, which is closely affiliated with the New Age Movement. Also of note is her contribution of an article to the June issue of Share International Magazine.

Canadian billionaire Maurice Strong, the Secretary General of the 1992 United Nations Conference of Environment and Development, a.k.a. the "Earth Summit". He continues to maintain great influence in issues at the UN, which is evidenced by the costly environmental plan set forth in the Earth Summit's "Agenda 21". Strong was a serious candidate for Secretary General of the UN in 1992, is a member of the Club of Rome, and has been known to financially support New Age movements in the U.S. He is the owner of a 63,000 acre Colorado ranch called the Baca Grande, which houses adepts from all strands of New Age mysticism, such as:

 

  • disciples of the XVI Gyalwa Karmapa, a faction of Tibetan Buddhism
  • Carmelites, who there built the Spiritual Life Institute, a co-ed monastery for silent contemplation
  • disciples of Babaji, an Indian Guru, who practice Hindu rituals in a solar-powered, gold-domed, adobe temple
  • Taoists and Sufis, both of which have temples on the property

 

Additionally, Shirley MacLaine, the New Ager whose 1987 mini-series 'Out on a Limb' inspired thousands to seek demonic-possession (by way of channeling), sought to build a New Age study center at the Baca, where people could take week-long courses. The plan fell through when local resistance mounted against the idea of a resort.

Kofi Annan, the current Secretary-General of the United Nations, who was allegedly married in the occult Meditation Room at the UN building in New York. Annan also appointed Maurice Strong as his Senior Adviser on United Nations reform issues. This means that the same man who has shown his passionate devotion to the NAM many times over has also been given the job of redesigning the United Nations for the future. The form that the UN may take after Strong's modifications could potentially lead us right into the "New Age" of world government.

(The source from which much of the preceding information has been taken is http://sovereignty.net/p/gov/ggreligion.htm)

It is clear from all these cases that the NAM is very influential amongst many of the most important people behind the United Nations. In fact, the UN has always shown interest in New Age mysticism, since the very beginning of the United Nations Organization:


"When the UN Headquarters Building [New York] was built in 1946, the architects included a Meditation Room in which the only object available to worshipers is the rectangular Black Rock, a symbol of the tellurian underworld thrust up from thedarkness below. This Black Rock is the hidden Goddess. It is the rock upon which the Church of the UNbelievers isbuilt, and the center of the Organization." (29)

This Meditation Room also contains an abstract piece of art:

"...what appears to be a serpent intertwining a pole intersected by the perpendicular side of a triangle
(cf. the central cross intertwined with a serpent) in front of a half-darkened sun representing the
Zoroastrian concept of the conflict between good and evil...." (30)

These occultic overtones, with the "Black Rock" and the abstract-serpent-art, are definitely intentional. And no wonder - according to William Norman Grigg in his book 'Freedom on the Altar', the Lucis Trust (which was founded by Alice Bailey) helped to create not only the UN Meditation Room, but also the UN's interfaith "Temple of Understanding" ('Freedom on the Altar', p. 165). Also of interest, Alice Bailey enthusiasts Corrine McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson have, in their book 'Spiritual Politics', described the UN Meditation Room as a place where spiritual experiences have been known to be had by UN officials and associates. Furthermore, the authors claim the following about it:

"The room ... has been referred to as one of the holiest of
holies on the planet.... It is the focus for the energies of a
unified planet and humanity, and for right relations among
all its kingdoms of life." (31)

This book is lauded by New Age author David Spangler, who is widely recognized for his statements that a "Luciferic Initiation" will be required of all people to enter into the New Age. It also receives praise from Dr. Noel Brown, the director of the United Nations Environmental Program, who says that he hopes that the book will be read by "leaders in all spheres of life". And no wonder, for it accurately portrays the UN as a product of anti-Christian New Age thought:

"Fundamentalist Christians have great fear of any movement
toward a world government, such as the United Nations, or
toward "oneness", such as the New Age movement. . . . But this
fear of "oneness" and unity may be due to the fact that many
who are drawn to simplistic fundamentalist perspectives are
"pre-individualized" and haven't as yet discovered their own
identity as individuals. . . . A helpful way for fundamentalists to
overcome their fear is to remember the "unity in diversity" theme,
which forms the basis of the work of both the United Nations and
the New Age movement
...." [emphasis mine] (32)

First of all, the similarities between the work of the UN and NAM which are mentioned here all help to point out the fact that the UN is accepted by New Agers as being an arm of their movement - which it has been my goal to illustrate in this article. Also notice how all Christians who don't agree with the NAM or the UN are labeled "fundamentalists", who must strive to overcome their "fear" of world government and of "oneness". They then go on to refer to biblical Christianity as a "simplistic" religion, whose followers are inferior, because they don't have any real identity of their own. And yet by writing such things, these authors demonstrate what has become the overall consensus of both the UN and NAM, which is that Christianity is an inadequate religion for the New Age. What's more, Christianity is often viewed by the UN/NAM as being counter-productive and even dangerous, which I will show later on in this article and in articles to come. Additionally, this "oneness" is referred to in the Bible as being a quality of the ten kings who support the Antichrist and give him their ruling power, thereby making him world dictator (see Rev 17:12-13, where the ten kings are said to have "one mind"; this prophecy also refers us to the New Age principle that "all is one", which will have great influence on the ten future kings of the earth. We have already seen some of this kind of influence in New Age leaders like Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Mary Robinson, and even Mikhail Gorbachev).

The above quote also reveals that New Agers are well aware that the United Nations is a movement towards a one world government, also demonstrated in this quote from Creme:

"The United Nations is the blueprint for a future World Government
of federated independent states." (33)

And as we know, the Bible has much to say about a world government of this kind, which, among other things, will have Antichrist as its head. Even more startling is the fact that the UN actually admits to the validity of Creme's statement:

"Mankind's problems can no longer be solved by national
governments. What is needed is a World Government. This
can best be achieved by strengthening the United Nations
system. In some cases, this would mean changing the role
of UN agencies from advice-giving to implementation." (34)

What we have here is one of the many examples which show that the agenda of the United Nations is in full agreement with that of the NAM.

Returning now to the topic of discussion, another author, Piers Compton, reveals an additional connection between the UN's Meditation Room and the NAM:

"A carefully edited bulletin, that supposedly dealt with the meaning
and purpose of the room, was produced by the Lucis Press, which
issues printed matter for the United Nations. The suspicious may
find food for thought in the fact that this publishing company ... was
[originally] known as Lucifer Press...." (35)

Lucis Press is the company which publishes the works of Alice Bailey and various other theosophists. Originally, as stated here, the company went under the name of Lucifer Press - which was not well received by the public. The name was then changed by the founder Bailey. That the name originally was Lucifer Press is understandable when you consider the respect given to this fallen angel in the works of Bailey; for example, in her book 'Destiny of the Nations' (1949) Lucifer is said to be the "Ruler of Humanity" (page 23). And even before Lucifer Press there was the magazine 'Lucifer', created by Theosophical Society founder H. P. Blavatsky.

One other point of interest is that the organization World Goodwill, which was founded in 1932 as a project of Bailey's Lucis Trust, is among the UN accredited non-governmental organizations (listed here). Among the listed activities of World Goodwill is the distribution of copies of the Great Invocation on a worldwide scale and in many languages. However, this "world prayer" actually is all about the manifestation of Satan's plan on earth. It says things like "May Christ return to Earth" - a reference to Maitreya, and talks about letting "Light descend on Earth" - a reference to the false light, by which Maitreya will deceive many when he declares himself to the world. The Great Invocation also refers to "sealing the door where evil dwells", which Bailey explains to mean the final ridding of the "three dead and gone" monotheistic religions. She says that the invocation speaks of humanity's great task, which is to "close the door" on what she claims is the "worst" evil in existence - monotheism ('The Rays and the Initiations', p. 754). Therefore, because of the UN's support for World Goodwill, they are on record as being in support of the destruction of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.

Let us continue.... Donald Keys, the UN consultant and president of Planetary Citizens, has in the past claimed that meditations are had at the United Nations a couple of times a week, with New Age meditation leader Sri Chinmoy - (36). It is these meditations which provide for the officials of the United Nations a direct link to the evil spirits which seek to manipulate them. In the same way that the repetition of the Great Invocation invites evil into the hearts of many, these kinds of meditations subject UN leaders to the demonic.

Now consider for a moment all the information that I have presented as you read this review of what has just been said:

 

  • UN leaders often go to the Meditation Room, where they meditate under the direction of a prominent New Age authority
  • it is here that the occult "energies" of the NAM are focused, as shown in the above quote from 'Spiritual Politics'

 

They are no doubt interacting with these "energies", which the authors of the book claim are present in other places at the United Nations building as well:

"Delegates and staff who work in the energy field of the UN ...
speak of being profoundly changed by being there...." (37)

On the basis of all this information, and on what we have read from Benjamin Creme and Alice Bailey about the influence of the demonic Spiritual Hierarchy on the UN, can we really dismiss it as a coincidence that the UN has the same exact agenda as the NAM? Why all these similarities? Why does the UN distribute materials for the demonically-inspired Share International, and why do they have a record of affiliation with Lucis (Lucifer) Press? Why do they seem to show support for every new endeavor of the NAM? Why does it appear that the two are working together? It's a simple enough answer: they are.

The UN, from its inception, has been a tool of the demons that are looking to bring about a New World Order under Antichrist, the world dictator. The godless leaders of the UN have always been selected by these evil spirits, which have made sure to be in contact with their human pawns through New Age meditation. I have seen no reason to doubt that the United Nations has completely surrendered to the will of these "seducing spirits", which Paul prophesied of so many years ago.

It might interest the reader to know that when Pope Paul VI visited and addressed the United Nations in October, 1965, he participated in one of these New Age meditations at the UN's Meditation Room (Piers Compton, 'The Broken Cross', cited below). This is further evidence that not only the United Nations, but also the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church is working under the influence of the same spirit of evil - the spirit of Anti-Christ.

The UN/globalist plan for Christianity

It is as a direct result of the dominance of this New Age and anti-Christian spirit at the UN that we find documents endorsed by the United Nations which are highly critical of Christianity. One of these documents is the 'Global Biodiversity Assessment', which was published for the United Nations Environment Program in 1995. Page 839 of the report reads as follows:

"Societies dominated by Islam, and especially by Christianity,
have gone farthest in setting humans apart from nature and
in embracing a value system that has converted the world
into a warehouse of commodities for human enjoyment."

Basically, this UN report is playing the blame-game, and most of the blame is being put on Christianity. As is obvious from expensive undertakings such as Agenda 21, the United Nations places a huge amount of importance on "saving the environment". But what is rarely mentioned by the UN is who or what they believe the environment must be saved from. Here, hidden way in the back of this report, the UN explains that the guilty party is Christianity:

"...conversion to Christianity has meant an abandonment of
an affinity with the natural world for many forest dwellers,
peasants, fishers all over the world. These people followed
their own religious traditions which included setting apart
between 10 and 30 percent of the landscape as sacred groves
and ponds. Most of these people were drawn into the larger
market economy and converted to Christianity by the late 1950s.
On so converting to a religious belief system that rejects
assignment of sacred qualities to elements of nature, they began
to cut down the sacred groves to bring the land under cultivation,
as well as to market rattan and timber."

Here is the crux of the statement: on so converting to Christianity, they began cutting down "sacred" groves - which, in their minds, is the epitome of evil. Only after their conversion, did these indigenous peoples begin to harm the environment.

Notice that the report refers often to the "sacred qualities" found in nature, which they seem to claim is an undeniable fact, but which Christianity (in its ignorance) has rejected. While in the past scapegoats for the ravaged environment have come and gone, the UN has decided once and for all that Christianity is the prime culprit. Couple this with the fact that the UN is constantly looking to move forward their agenda of reviving the environment, and what do we get? Well, think of it this way: the UN already views Christianity as being at fault for the "environmental predicament", so there is already one strike against those of the Christian faith; and yet, because most Christians would argue that the environment is not one of our most pressing problems, the UN has added yet another strike. One more strike and, as they say, Christianity is officially out. What is significant is that the third strike has probably already been given to Bible-based Christians everywhere, for their refusal to appreciate the traditions of non-Christian world religions, for their "hatred" and "fanaticism", and for their fierce "intolerance". This is important especially because it implies that a world government founded upon the UN, which many New Agers and others expect, would without question be biased against Christians and their faith. We read now that all rights "may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations" - but then, what would happen if the role of the UN was switched from advice-giving to implementation? Would Christian believers that are critical of the UN's policies be tolerated? Time will certainly tell.

Now, so far I have mentioned several anti-Christian NGOs that have been awarded an accredited status at the UN. This means that they are allowed to attend UN conferences of relevance and give input, but not vote. Another group that has been given such status is the Interfaith Center of New York:

"The Interfaith Center of New York seeks to integrate the
sacred into our daily lives and to apply the wisdom and
resources of the world's religious traditions to issues of conflict
in local communities and among nations." (38)

Just to clarify, regardless of what anyone claims, God only inspired the creation of two religious faiths in all of history, and He only honors one of them to this day. As it is with all other interfaith movements, this one is anti-Christian simply because it seeks to legitimize the "wisdom and resources" of religions which oppose the gospel of Jesus Christ. And it doesn't necessarily stop there, as it should. Consider this statement made by the president of the Interfaith Center:

"Today, in recognizing the intimate connectedness of all
creation – in the revelations of contemporary physics and
the global immediacy of the internet – we the human species
simply must acknowledge and embrace the many rich sacred
traditions our sisters and brothers have uplifted in awe and
wonder throughout the ages." [emphasis mine] (39)

This statement was made by the Reverend James Parks Morton, President of the Interfaith Center of New York. It is indeed a fine demonstration of the kind of thinking that so many of those affiliated with the United Nations seem to share. We shall be returning to the theme that all people must embrace other religious traditions.

The role of the Interfaith Center in the workings of the UN is performed primarily by the Center's International and UN Affairs Department, as described in the following:

"...The International and UN Affairs Department of the Interfaith
Center is committed to fostering international interfaith activities.
We ... collaborate with the United Nations on the integration of
spiritual values into its daily activities...." (40)

Now so far in this article we have - if nothing else - seen that the UN most definitely has a spiritual arm to it, which is shown again here. What is also evident is that this spiritual arm is comprised completely of people and organizations which believe that all religions are equal. But what is even less understood about this spiritual arm is that it firmly believes that it is crucial for all people to feel the same way about religion as they do. As the above quote says from Rev. Morton says, all people "simply must acknowledge and embrace" the religious beliefs and traditions of everyone else; apparently there are no two ways about this, because there surely aren't any alternatives to this mindset given by the pastor. And that is the manner in which the United Nations approaches religion - without exception.

The International and UN Affairs Department of the Interfaith Center apparently is apparently continuing to make sure that this way of thinking and approach to religion is preserved:

"The Department is playing a key role in the development
of the World Parliament of Religions to be held in Cape
Town, South Africa in December 1999." (41)

The World Parliament of Religions which is mentioned here will be the third meeting of its kind. The first was held in in Chicago in 1893, and was the beginning of the interfaith movement. The following quote from the first World Parliament represents what is and what has always been the chief goal of the interfaith movement:

"Religion, like the white light of Heaven, has been broken
into many colored fragments by the prisms of men. One of
the objects of the Parliament of Religions has been to
change the many-colored radiance back into the white light
of heavenly truth." (42)

This quote is from the opening address of the parliament chairman Dr. John Henry Barrows. No statement could better demonstrate what the interfaith movement is really all about: its purpose is to create a united, one world religion. While some will go on and on about its purpose being the development of greater "unity in diversity", or the promotion of "tolerance and understanding" among all religions, such things do not best represent the core adherents of the movement. From the very beginning, the interfaith movement was all about finding a common ground between religions, which, when it was found, would be used to build a single religion for the whole world. What was never counted on or considered was that such unity could easily be manipulated by the forces of evil for its own purposes - namely, by Antichrist and his demonic "Hierarchy of Masters".

Which brings us now to the second World Parliament of Religions, held on the centenary of the first, in 1993. This event was also held in Chicago, from August 28 - September 4, and was attended by 6,500 persons. It was at this conference that the creation of a United Religions was proposed by Sir Sigmund Sternberg, Chair of International Council of Christians and Jews. As you may have read in the first part of this series, the United Religions idea has been adopted, and a draft of the organization's charter has been drawn up. The plan is that a final draft of the charter will be put together, and that in June of 2000 there will be an official signing of the UR Charter by representatives from all religions. At this point the UR will become a fully functioning organization, serving the purpose for religions that the UN serves for nations, and operating in a similar fashion as the UN.

And still another very important phase of this progression towards the fulfillment of biblical prophecy commenced at the 1993 World Parliament of Religions. This was the presentation and subsequent signing of the 'Declaration of the Religions for a Global Ethic', or the 'Declaration of a Global Ethic', as it is sometimes called. The document was authored by famed Catholic theologian Hans Kung. However, it appears that Kung is no longer best described as being a "Catholic" theologian, but rather as one of the globalist persuasion:

"Kung has moved beyond the narrow albeit fascinating world
of theology to applying his well-trained analytical talents to
reflect on vital arenas of human productivity including politics,
economics, and international relations." (43)

Indeed, this document hardly reflects the sentiments of a devout Romanist, but rather those of a full-fledged, initiated New Age internationalist. This we shall soon discover as we examine the infamous 'Declaration of a Global Ethic'.

It begins with an introduction, from which the following excerpt is taken:

"We affirm that there is an irrevocable, unconditional norm
for all areas of life, for families and communities, for races,
nations, and religions. There already exist ancient guidelines
for human behavior which are found in the teachings of the
religions of the world and which are the condition for a
sustainable world order." (44)

There is an abundance of significance in this one statement, maybe more than you could extract from reading it only once. Let us examine it piece by piece:

 

  • "We affirm..."; the implication being made here is that what is to follow is already a generally accepted truth, which needs no proof, but only their affirmation.
  • "...there is an irrevocable, unconditional norm for all areas of life..."; the key words here are "irrevocable" and "unconditional". The 1991 New Webster's Dictionary defines irrevocable as "incapable of being recalled or revoked". Simply put, the norm that is being discussed is set in stone - nothing can be done to either alter or invalidate it. Webster's then defines unconditional as "complete; absolute; without reservation". The norm is now said to be not only one of truth, but absolute truth. This is of interest because it is this same interfaith crowd which at other times has denounced absolutism, calling it religion's "cardinal sin" (see the report on the First Religion & Cultural Diversity Conference, from Endtime Ministries).
  • "...for families and communities, for races, nations, and religions..."; this means everybody. This norm is for all - and remember, this norm is absolute, and can not be retracted - EVER.
  • "There already exist ancient guidelines for human behavior which are found in the teachings of the religions of the world..."; from this we see that the norm for human behavior is based upon the teachings of the ancient world religions. Now a Christian such as myself would argue that verses such as Matthew 12:30 - which says that whoever is not with Christ is against Him - demonstrate that the teachings of world religions which do not believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ are deceitful, and therefore have their origins in evil.
  • "...and which are the condition for a sustainable world order."; this "sustainable world order" is revealed as being the motivation for a movement towards conformity to the teachings of the religions of the world. The foremost reason for affirming the existence of a norm for all areas of life is that this norm is an essential part of discovering and maintaining a "sustainable world order".

 

Consider this for a moment: as is stated above, the goal of this movement is a "sustainable world order". This goal can be achieved, but there is only one way: adherence to the teachings of world religions. Add that these teachings form a norm for human behavior - which is both irrevocable (incapable of alteration) and unconditional (absolute). This all brings the reader to the realization that this document not only presents an acceptable way to live, but the only way! There is an expectation built right into the framework of the document: the expectation that all people are to conform to this way of living and to this manner of belief. This type of attitude, regarding people's acceptance of superfluous religious traditions, was first shown by the quote from the president of the Interfaith Center of New York, who said that "we simply must" embrace religious traditions other than our own. So while accountability is merely implied by the introduction to the Global Ethic document, an expectation of this does in fact exist - one which has been openly admitted to:

"According to Parliament chairman David Rampage,
the Global Ethic Document ... was composed in order to
"establish an alternative framework for religion to which
people would be held accountable
(emphasis added)."
(45)

The way in which all people will be held accountable to this document remains to be seen. I would not claim, however, that it is a long shot to guess that we will all be encouraged to adhere to these "ancient guidelines for human behavior" by Maitreya, his demonic forces, and the globalist leaders of the New Roman Empire. Refusal to do so will have few consequences initially, but staying true to our Lord Jesus Christ in this fashion will in fact sow the seeds of persecution, which will sprout and grow until maturity. I need not remind you of what will take place when this happens.

Now that we understand not only the thinking behind the Global Ethic document, but also the potential implications of this thinking, we can proceed to analyze its significant portions. In the section entitled "The Principles of a Global Ethic", we read the following:

"Time and again we see leaders and members of religions
incite aggression, fanaticism, hate, and xenophobia - even
inspire and legitimize violent and bloody conflicts. . . .
We are filled with disgust." (46)

These are all charges commonly made by globalists against religious "fundamentalists". While such charges can fairly be made against some Christian groups, a dangerous tendency is to assume that all those who don't subscribe to one-world ideology are the source of the aforementioned world problems. And this is what is being done by many leaders of the New Age Movement. While her words can not speak for the entire NAM, Alice Bailey has said some things that sound very similar to the above quote from the Global Ethic document. In the same way that Hans Kung condemns religious peoples on the grounds of "fanaticism", Bailey does the same:

"Years ago I said that the war which may follow this one [WWII]
would be waged in the field of the world religions. Such a war
will not work out, however, in a similar period of extreme carnage
and blood; it will be fought largely with mental weapons and in
the world of thought; it will involve also the emotional realm, from
the standpoint of idealistic fanaticism. This inherent fanaticism ...
will fight against the appearance of the coming world religion and
the spread of esotericism. For this struggle certain of the well-
organized churches ... are already girding themselves." (47)

Here, however, it is specified who these fanatical religious leaders are: members of the Christian churches. And another point is made here as well, which is that those here accused of fanaticism are any and all Christians who oppose the "coming world religion and the spread of esotericismv, i.e. the New World Religion of Maitreya. It is likely that this is the same idea behind the above quote from the Global Ethic document - which is that "fundamentalist" Christian groups, which attempt to challenge the satanic New Age religion, are the source of our most pressing world problems. This thinking could easily justify much action being taken against people who preach what they consider to be "fanaticism" - i.e., devotion to the teachings of the Bible and opposition to the New Age Movement.

Keep in mind that whenever you see accusations being made such as those listed above (i.e., aggression, fanaticism, hate) that the way in which such words are being used may differ greatly from their true meaning. For example, someone who preaches that their faith alone can save may be accused of hatred for those of other faiths. Such accusations are made against true Christians more than often - which is important to realize, because if the United Nations decided that such accusations were valid, they might begin a great persecution against Christianity. Consider also the following excerpt from the United Nations International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights:

"Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience
and religion. . . . Freedom to manifest one's religion or beliefs may
be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are
necessary to protect public safety, order, health, or morals or the
fundamental rights and freedoms of others." (48)

Just as with the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, this document contains a self-nullifying loophole, by which a previously affirmed right (i.e., freedom of religion) does not have to be honored if a certain governing body does not wish it so. If Christianity were deemed to be a religion which inspired aggression, fanaticism, and hatred, or one which legitimizes "violent and bloody conflicts", a government could easily choose not to respect the right to practice that religion. Christianity could easily be deemed a threat to all of the things listed above: public safety, order, health, morals, and the fundamental rights and freedoms of others. The works of Alice Bailey and her disciple Benjamin Creme have already proven this, because they both seek to indict opposition to the NAM as a major threat, using accusations of fanaticism and hatred as proof. But even more significantly than this if the fact that many powerful globalists and officials of the UN are considerably close to thinking the same.

Turning again to the Global Ethic document, we read the following in Section II:"Every form of egoism should be rejected: All selfishness,
whether individual or collective, whether in the form of class
thinking, racism, nationalism, or sexism. We condemn these
because they prevent humans from being authentically human."
[emphasis mine] (49)

Granted, all the things listed here are problems - but we must question what exactly do they mean by "authentically human". Isn't it degradation to claim that certain individuals are not humans in the whole sense? It certainly is, and as we shall continue to see, the accusation of not being "authentically human" is brought against many different kinds of people throughout this document. It is especially important to note this, because in the United States and in many other places it is perfectly legal to murder unborn babies on these same grounds - which is that they are not people in the whole sense. By merely advocating the classification of certain people as unauthentic humans - a classification which, when applied to the unborn, can mean their death - this document is coming awful close to advocating a similar treatment.

In this same section we read:

"Self-determination and self-realization are thoroughly legitimate
so long as they are not separated from human self-responsibility
and global responsibility, that is, from responsibility for fellow
humans and for the planet Earth." (50)

Again, let us turn to Webster's so that we might process exactly what this statement is saying:

"self-determination: free will; right of a people or a nation to work
out its own problems and destiny, free from interference from without"

"self-realization: fulfillment by oneself of the possibilities of one's
character or personality"

The first question that must be asked is, since when has the legitimacy of either of these things been in question? The quoted statement supposes that both of these can be violated by the state (or some other earthly institution) if it chooses to do so. Truly, this is an issue of national sovereignty. God is sovereign over all creation, but He chose at Babel to separate the peoples and nations from each other, and in doing this He gave them each their own national sovereignty and free will to follow Him if they chose. But in the above statement from the Global Ethic document, we see an attempt to not only impose restrictions on free will (which only God can do), but with it an attempt to invade the God-given sovereignty of each nation.

As seems obvious to me, the message being sent here is anti-biblical in every way. First of all, good Christians do not follow their own free will in the first place, but rather God's will for them. Recognizing this, let us ponder for a moment: God has a will for us, which is revealed to us in the Bible and through prayer; we, as good Christians, choose to do His will; but then in comes these people from organizations like the United Nations, the United Religions, and so on, who interpret our doing of God's will as being our following of our own free will - and they do not like it one bit. Why? Because to do God's will DEMANDS that we are separated from so-called global responsibility and responsibility for the environment, etc. And why is this? Because, if we accept their definitions, we also accept "global responsibility" is quite worldly, and therefore is to be avoided. If we sought to serve man's worldly interpretation of what is right and wrong, and what is to be done and not to be done, we would be seeking to please man, which is frowned upon by God:

"...they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God."
(John 12:43, KJV)

"For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please
men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ."
(Galatians 1:10, KJV)

But for following God's will in this way, we are condemned.

If the statutes of this document were to be enforced, by the UN or UR, true Christians would quickly find persecution for their carrying out of God's will. You see, when we would do God's will, it would naturally be interpreted by the godless as our doing of our own free will - which, by their definition, would be illegitimate, because it would be separated from the global/human responsibility to which all would be held accountable. This is a blueprint for totalitarian world government, one which, in enforcing the statutes of this document, would no doubt raise great persecution against those who refuse to conform to the "global norm".

And there is still much more to the Global Ethic that must be examined. In Section III, "Irrevocable Directives", we read this:

"To be authentically human in the spirit of our great religious
and ethical traditions means that in public as well as in private
life we must be concerned for others and ready to help. . . .
Every people, every race, every religion must show tolerance
and respect - indeed high appreciation - for every other
."
[emphasis mine] (51)

Again, this is the same attitude as previously seen in the president of the Interfaith Center's quote. The key word here is "must": you must show tolerance, you must respect, etc. But as we know, their definitions of tolerance and respect are incompatible with those of most faithful Christians. Tolerance by the definition of the globalists means that you can not:

 

  • spread the gospel, because such an act promotes absolutism (which is evil when it is based on the Bible), and is viewed as an attempt to impose views on others
  • criticize deceptive religions or religious beliefs, because all religions are viewed as being equal; an exception is made, of course, for faiths that are considered to be "fundamentalist" in nature - these may be criticized freely

 

And in addition to these two restrictions, you must demonstrate "high appreciation" for all other religions. Yet the question remains - what if we choose not to be obedient to their demands? It really seems like the above statement should have an "or else" attached - so the question remains, is there an "or else"? Absolutely. The statement begins by saying that "to be authentically human" we must do something - and that something is that we must, among other things, show "high appreciation" for all religious traditions. This is the "or else" - we must demonstrate this high appreciation OR ELSE we are not "authentically human". Since being a Bible-based Christian and following the guidelines set forth in this document at the same time is not possible, we must deduce that in the mind of the globalists, all true Christians are not "authentically human". Again, this is the most important thing to fully understand about the globalist agenda: it opposes not only biblical Christianity, but Bible-based Christians as well. It refers to Christians in terms that have long been used to provide justification for the murder of so many people:

"Students of 20th century totalitarian movements are quite
familiar with the common fate of those found to be less than
"authentically" human." (52)

But even more disturbing than this is that the same terms used to describe the victims of the Stalin and Hitler regimes are still used today, not only when referring to Christians (as above), but also to describe unborn children. Not only this, but unborn children are described in such a way that others can easily be deemed worthy of extermination on basis of the precedent which has been set by the U.S. Supreme Court:

"The Supreme Court decision [Roe vs. Wade] was based …
on [the] criterion [that] the unborn child is not a person in any
"meaningful" or "whole" sense.... The Court did not conclude
that "meaningful" or "whole" personhood begins at birth; it said
only that it does not begin before that time. The distinction is
profoundly important, because the Court's vague and open-ended
definition supplies the constitutional precedent for dehumanizing
other segments of humanity by defining their lives as meaningless
and incomplete." (53)

More on this will be discussed in the next part of this series, but I wanted to make sure we realize now that the threat of a Holocaust of Christians, Jews and others is real, and not something which students of biblical prophecy have invented to corroborate the theory that the endtimes are here.

The next "Irrevocable Directive" is as follows:

"…no one has the right to use her or his possessions without
concern for the needs of society and Earth." (54)

Again, whose definition are we going by here? A Christian might say that the greatest need of society is for it to be rescued from the ominous direction of its course by the simplicity and truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. However, the needs of society are unquestionably quite different in the mind of globalist; and the needs of the earth can not be reconciled with biblical Christianity either. I have never been given the impression from the scriptures that the earth "needs" anything. And while God's word promises that He will see to the destruction of those "which destroy the earth" (Rev 11:18), it also says that "earth shall pass away" (Matt 24:35) and that God will put a new earth in its place (Rev 21). Therefore, while we are not to misuse the earth and its resources, we are nowhere told that it is would ever need anything. God's earth has always been perfect, as is all His creation, and we can be assured that it will last until the "day of judgment" on which it will burned up with fire (2 Pet 3:7, 10).

We also must question exactly what limitations might be put on the use of our possessions. The vagueness of this statement implies that the nature of the limitations would not be predetermined, but would be decided on by whoever is involved in the implementation of the rule. This could easily be used to justify the confiscation of Bibles and other Christian literature, which has already been deemed to be "intolerant", "hateful", and "bigoted" by much of the UN's global regime. Keep in mind that this statement is not merely a suggestion. It does not say, "we should all use our possessions with the needs of society and the earth in mind" - it plainly says that we have no right to use our possessions in any other way. By saying such things, the document clearly expects that there will be some sort of action taken to implement these rules and statutes, because otherwise a redefinition of which rights are to be preserved would be unnecessary.

In part 3 of Section III, "Commitment to a Culture of Tolerance and a Life of Truthfulness", the following is said:

"Numberless women and men of all regions and religions strive
to lead lives of honesty and truthfulness. Nevertheless, all over
the world we find endless lies, and deceit, swindling and hypocrisy,
ideology and demagoguery:" (55)

Listed are politicians and business people who use lies as a means to success, mass media which spreads propaganda, scientists who have sold out to "political programs or to economic interest groups", and researchers who "justify research which violates fundamental ethical values". All of these without much question fit into "deceit, swindling and hypocrisy" grouping quoted above. However, the final category of people who apparently are not living a "life of truthfulness" is as follows:

"Representatives of religions who dismiss other religions as
of little value and who preach fanaticism and intolerance
instead of respect and understanding."

Once again it is being stressed that all religions are to be appreciated - and that all who don't have this appreciation are intolerant fanatics. We then read this:

"In the great ancient religious and ethical traditions of humankind
we find the directive: You shall not lie! Or in positive terms: Speak
and act truthfully! Let us reflect anew on the consequences of this
ancient directive: No woman or man, no institution, no state or
church or religious community has the right to speak lies to other
humans."

This document is flat out calling you a liar if you have decided that other religions are "of little value". It claims to know that all religions are equally truthful and of equal value, and therefore anyone who thinks otherwise is a liar. And not only are such people liars, but they have no right to speak such lies, and deserve punishment:

"This is especially true ... for representatives of religion. When
br>they stir up prejudice, hatred, and enmity towards those of
different belief, or even incite or legitimize religious wars, they
deserve the condemnation of humankind and the loss of their
adherents."

The measures being advocated here are incredible, simply because they are completely unprecedented. Never before have representatives of religion had to have their followers taken away because they were preaching something which was viewed as being hateful. Granted, people who truly legitimize religious wars are wrong for doing so, but what is dangerous is that this kind of suggestion could very easily be abused, with undeserving religious leaders being stripped of their adherents because of a bias against them by a ruling faction.

Finally, if you have had any doubt of the New Age influence on this document, you should consider the following statement:

"Historical experience demonstrates the following: Earth cannot be
changed for the better unless we achieve a transformation in the
consciousness of individuals and in public life." (56)

Actually, there is no historical record of this - it is merely a ploy to give credibility the tenets of the New World Religion, which I outlined in the previously article in this series. A "transformation in the consciousness" is just another way of referring to an evolution of consciousness, which many New Agers point to as being the goal for all of humanity in the coming new age. Had they said that historical experience demonstrates that a change of heart is necessary if the world is to be changed for the better, then there would be no problem. However, this is stated using plain New Age buzz-terminology, which shows once and for all that this document is a product of New Age, demon-inspired ideology.

Of those that signed the document, 44 were representatives of Christianity - (57), which is a clear illustration of the level of apostasy to which so many of the church leaders have fallen, through New Age infiltration in the church. Among those "Christian" delegates that signed, one was Robert Muller. Others that signed were Buddhists, Hindus, neo-Pagans, Zoroastrians, a Taoist, and a Theosophist.

One final thing that I must note in regards to the Global Ethic document is how the mass media is apparently receiving the New Age interfaith movement exemplified at the 1993 World Parliament of Religions. Gannett, America's largest newspaper chain, has demonstrated that the mass media is in fact completely behind this movement - and is willing to help spread the "good news". Gannett, owns such newspapers as USA Today, Florida Today, the Knoxville Journal, the El Paso Times, Tuscon Citizen, the Pacific Daily News, the Idaho Statesman, and the Oakland Tribune - as well as more than 100 others and a number of TV stations. Shortly after the signing of the Declaration of a Global Ethic, USA Today invited readers to send away to the Gannett headquarters for a free copy of it. Now while USA Today - and most newspapers in general - usually will not play favorites with the different religions, this time Gannett just could not hide their partiality. And yet the fact that this document is not merely an interfaith declaration, but rather one that is better classified as New Age, shows that the ideology of the NAM is not just acceptable to the mass media, but has in fact been deemed worthy of its support. Aggressive environmentalist and UN-ally Ted Turner, with his network CNN, is another example of this.

As a result of their endorsement of the NAM now, we can assume that the godless mass media will be blown away by the appearance and declaration of Maitreya to the world. Consequently, they will influence many to accept him as someone who really has only the world's best interests in mind.

Shortly after the appearance of Maitreya, a world government will begin to form, as will be detailed in future articles. After this formation, the UN, who already subscribes to the brand of ideology shown by the Global Ethic document, will attempt to implement their anti-Christian agenda using the principles of the document and others. What this will lead to is a Holocaust of those who oppose the new rule of Maitreya the Anti-Christ, following a short period of false peace. Mass martyrdoms of Christians are prophesied of by Christ in the Olivet Discourse, and in Revelation, and we can observe that the way is being prepared for this to come about, by the labeling of Bible-based Christendom as not "authentically human".

As is mentioned above, a third Parliament of the World's Religions is planned for December of this year in Capetown, South Africa. We shall certainly have to pay careful attention to what happens there, because it very well could give us an indication of how close we are to Maitreya's declaration and to the New World Religion. One possibility is that the globalists might draw up guidelines for people's accountability to the "alternative framework for religion" which is outlined in the Global Ethic document. Another thing we can expect is Robert Muller's presentation of a "comprehensive detailed plan" for a "world-wide spiritual Renaissance" - (58). What this actually means is anyone's guess, but chances are good he will not be promoting biblical Christian spirituality. Chances are also good that his plan will involve the future United Religions - which he has been a strong supporter of. So while the UN may not yet have the power to dictate directly regarding religious matters, the UR may in fact be given such powers. Many leaders of religion may recognize the UR as being for the "common good", and they may allow themselves to be directed by the UR in various matters - such as in dealing with "extremist" groups. Such dealings might at first mean only advice giving - as with the UN - but soon could be turned into implementation. And once this "global ethic" is implemented, a campaign to weed out all "fundamentalist" groups will begin. Obedience to the global norm will be demanded - which means abandoning our support of any absolute truth; this includes belief in the biblical Christian doctrine of salvation by Christ alone. But we must resist this at all costs! If we don't resist from the very beginning, we risk later falling in with the rest of the world in worshiping the Antichrist.

I pray that this article has helped you to better understand the endtimes which we are in, and my hope is that it has also helped you to better understand what you need to do to be ready. My hope is by accepting that we may have to face future martyrdom, we can begin to take additional measures to make sure that our faiths will be preserved; this acceptance should never incite panic or fear. If we understand that our bodies are merely impermanent temples for the Holy Spirit, and that God is glorified greatly through our patient acceptance of our fate, it should become easier to understand why God would ever have decided such a fate for us. All we can do is become stronger in the faith, and closer to God and Christ. I would recommend memorizing some of the scriptures, because Bibles will undoubtedly be confiscated once the Great Tribulation begins. But other than spiritual preparation, no other is needed. Keep in mind these passages:

"And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes
are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old
upon thy foot." (Deuteronomy 29:5, KJV)

"...he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened
the doors of heaven, And had rained down manna upon them
to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven. Man did eat
angels' food: he sent them meat to the full. . . . So they did eat,
and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;"
(Psalms 78:23-25, 29, KJV)

I have some confidence that God will sustain us and provide for us in the same way that He did for the Israelites during those 40 years in the wilderness; our 3 1/2 years "in the wilderness" will be nothing compared to that. Consider also Christ's parable in Matthew 6:25-33, where He stresses that what we must first strive for is our spiritual readiness. If we are as spiritually prepared as possible, then we can be assured that God will not allow us to be tested beyond our strength (1 Cor 10:13), regardless of what situation we find ourselves in. We are not to worry about anything but our spiritual preparation for the tribulation to come (although other preparation, such as mental, can be a part of spiritual preparation; I hope to write about this sometime). Let us grow in the Spirit together and benefit in our everyday lives from the spiritual preparations we are making for the challenging times ahead.

Thank you very much for reading, and may the God of Peace bless you and strengthen you in all things.

"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels,
nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be
able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
(Romans 8:38-39)

Did you know that there is a God? This is more than belief. Be assurred that this is an absolute truth, one which I myself did not always embrace, but which I now know is real. There is a God, and He is deeply interested in our lives.

Maybe you don't believe this. Maybe you are saying, "I don't believe in the God of the Bible, or in any other god either." But whether you believe or not, you are actively serving a god every day of your life. You see, whatever thing you give the adoration and attention in your life, that is your god. Whatever thing you go to as a relief or support in tough times, that is your god. This is just reality.

You may find that this thing that you go to never quite fulfills you. It may make you happy for a time, but afterwards you are left only with emptiness, until you experience that thing again. Maybe this thing is a person, or a habit, or a possession. Maybe it is music or some other form of media. Whatever it is, it can not fulfill you, as you probably already have sensed. So, you must periodically move on to another thing. But every new thing is just another false god in your life, and it won't fulfill you either.

The reason for all this is that there is no substitute for the true and living God. We were created to have a relationship with God, and no other thing could ever fill the place inside of us that was created to experience Him and be fulfilled by Him alone. No matter how hard we try we will never be able to put something else into the place in our heart which was made only to fit God. We think that there are substitutes, and we try different ones in vain, but deep down we realize THERE ARE NONE. Trying to live a balanced life without God is trying to do the impossible.

Fortunately, a relationship with God has nothing to do with condemnation for our rejection of Him or for any of our shortcomings. Our relationship with God is a relationship of love. He has loved us, and loves us at this very moment. But the sin of man may be blinding you from seeing this truth. It is this sinfulness that you need salvation from right now.

God, through His love, has made a way for you to come to Him. This is the only way that God made for us to come to Him, because it is the perfect way, and He did not need to make another. This way, the perfect means of our of reconciliation to Him, is that God sent His only Son Jesus to save us from our sins. You may think you know all about this, but it is nothing until you have experienced it. The Bible tells us that Christ knew no sin, but died for our sins, so that His righteousness might be transferred to our account. We are without fault before God when we receive Jesus Christ as Savior. This is what we must do to find peace and fulfillment here on earth, and eternal life in heaven.

God will not barge in unwelcomed, though. He can not force you out of your sin, but He desires that with your free will you might make a decision for Him. God is trying to get your attention right now! Please open your heart to Him in prayer. Invite Christ to be the Savior and Lord of your life. Ask God for forgiveness for your sins and confess to Him that you can not do it on your own, nor can you come to Him any other way than through Jesus. Read the Word of God, the Bible, and allow God to change your life through the relationship you have with Him. Acknowledge Him, and you will find that He is what you have been looking for all along.

"...if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and
believe in your heart that God raised him from the
dead, you will be saved. ... For, "Everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:9, 13)

Please E-mail me if you have made a decision for Christ after reading this message. I would like to give you some help or answer any questions you may have, so that you may begin a fruitful walk with Him. God bless you!
