It was in the beginning of the new millennium that I was first introduced to New Age Christianity, which was no different than old age or mainstream Christianity. It had just been repackaged in order to sell it to the masses. What did the two have in common? Faith without works. Spirit without the word. Energy without the seed. One could simply claim to have the Holy Spirit or be Spirit, without any further action. Through the power of the mind and the gyrating of the body one could activate spiritual energy, which is spiritual masturbation; a revelation I received in the mid-seventies. This deceptive spirit, which is called “the energy of delusion,” would spread to those that had escaped the spirit of religion. Or so they thought! They may have left the building, but the energy that gave power to the old belief was simply transferred to the new belief; one that teaches that we are perfect with respect to our spiritual state. We just had to remember that, having been behind the “veil of forgetfulness” as it was referred to. In truth, it is not our perfect spiritual state that we have to remember, but what took place in our life that caused us to move away from this pure spiritual state of love and light, and into fear and darkness, which they have no knowledge of because the New Age doctrine has taught them that anything that is negative is an illusion. Interestingly, the fabric used to make a veil (and I’ve made many) is called illusion. The New Age illusion doctrine serves to protect the evil by denying it exists, this psychological veil obscuring the evil, an anagram for the word veil. Coincidence?
Those that have bought into one of the many New Age doctrines communicate words that are pleasing to the ear, which is spiritual fornication, but have no power to bring about conception in the heart. This type of intercourse does not serve to bring forth good fruit. That would require them to stop resisting the evil they deny exists. They say they are Spirit with their mouth, yet they resist the holy spirit of their heart, whose divine purpose is to bring the evil that exists in their heart up to their mind, into their awareness, or “consciousness,” the buzz word these days. All are one they say. They have unwittingly been preparing themselves for the New Order through this New Age doctrine, which teaches that all are equal. There is no hierarchy. No one is lesser or greater than anyone else. Everyone receives the same reward, which according to this new age belief, one does not have to work for. Anyone can achieve an ascended state. You just have to claim it with your mouth, remember it with your mind, or acquire it by manipulating the energy in your body. Mind and body. The Heart doesn’t even enter the equation. This multi-faceted New Age doctrine teaches the opposite of God’s Word, the New World Order or Government being the external vessel for the unholy spirit that is at work in an internal vessel; in the heart of man. “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 1 John 4:3. Notice is says “it shall come,” indicating a spirit, not a person, which is why it is “antichrist” (lower case). Denying that Jesus came in physical flesh may have been regarded as the “spirit of antichrist” in the previous “era of Isaac.” But the world has moved into the third and final “era of Jacob,” in which we are to look at these things with a spiritual mind, as the carnal mind is enmity against God (Romans 8:7). Many of those who have bought into these New Age doctrines do confess that Christ is come in the flesh— their flesh. They claim to be Christ, which Jesus warned us about. Some are very blunt about it, others very subtle. Clearly a sign of the carnal mind. Those with a spiritual mind understand that christ is a power, that if not resisted, works through the flesh—“the fleshy tables of the heart.” The proponents of these new age beliefs are unwittingly giving power to the “spirit of antichrist.”
The “spirit of antichrist” is playing right into the hands of the New Order. Why? Because if the heart of man were to be healed through the power of christ, also called the “spirit of truth,” man would be authentically empowered instead of falsely empowered through “the energy of delusion” that is working through his mind, giving him an illusion of peace; a false peace, which is where this New World Order needs us to be in order to control us, and take away our freedom. Capitalism is an economic and political system characterized by a free market for goods and services and private control of production and consumption. Socialism is a social system or theory in which the government owns and controls the means of production (as factories) and distribution of goods. Liberals believe that socialism is the solution to corporate greed. They are all for the government stepping in and taking control of the “greedy bastards” of capitalism, as they speak. But greed is a heart problem, which cannot be legislated through government. Liberals are willing to sacrifice all of their freedoms for the few examples of corporate or monetary greed. Greed is a rapacious desire for more than one needs or deserves. Spiritual greed is a lust for spiritual power, which is driving the proponents of this multi-faceted New Age doctrine, causing them to unwittingly exchange the freedom of capitalism for the bondage of socialism. Socialism grows directly out of capitalism; it is the first form of the new society. Communism is a further development or higher stage of socialism. The color associated with Socialism and Communism is red. The World is choosing Esau, which is Edom (Genesis 36:8), meaning red. And like Esau, man is forfeiting his spiritual birthright for a mess of “red pottage;” his right to spiritual and physical freedom because of a dangerous arrogance— a spiritual arrogance that is preventing him from dealing with the spiritual bondage of his heart. So be prepared. It is going to get rough, the meaning of the word Esau.
