New Age or Old Lies – Intro 8 – Lucis Trust #3 Review Revelation 13
Alice La Trobe Bateman (aka Alice Bailey), as her name was originally, is the founder of The Lucis trust, as we saw. It represented a syncretism of Gnostic Christianity with the theories of M. Blavatsky’s Theosophy. Today her Lucis Trust has non-governmental organization status (NGO) with the UN. …..It has also been given legitimacy in the Episcopal cathedral in NYC, The Cathedral of St. John the Divine. With their help, it has spawned The Temple of Understanding. Bailey was raised an Episcopalian in England. And, after separating from her husband, over physical cruelty, she relocated to California and was recruited into the Pacific Grove Lodge of Theosophy (1915). By 1920 she became the editor of the American Theosophists newspaper, The Messenger. In the same year, she married Foster Bailey, a Scottish Rite Freemason, and Co-Mason, and launched a fight with Annie Besant for control of the Theosophy movement, but lost when Besant’s man, Louis Roger was elected president. Immediately after, she and Foster put together their own Tibetan lodge under… the Lucifer Trust. By the 30’s they claimed 200,000 members. Look at other “fronts” she established or helped to:
The Arcane School, 1923 gives correspondence courses in meditation from branches in NYC, Geneva, London, & Buenos Aires.
World Goodwill, 1932. Since the dropping of the atomic bomb, Lucis Trust has sought to give the UN full control of all nuclear weapons on the planet, with which to impose a “one world federalist empire” over sovereign nations. Today they work directly with “world federalists” and are a part of the work to “externalize the Hierarchy” of Illumined Minds of the world, OVER the world. They want this to usher in the Age of Maitreya, otherwise interpreted by A. Bailey to be the return of the christ. They are IN the UN folks!
Triangles, 1937. A global network of cells whose members pray a “Great Invocation”, especially on the night of the full moon, when the influence of the astrological signs of the zodiac is strong, FOR the appearance of christ.
The Findhorn Foundation. A sacred community of the New-Age based in Great Britain. Bailey disciple, David Spengler, who is an admitted Luciferian, became the co-director of it when he formed the Lorian Association. He sits on the boards of directors of Planetary Citizens, the Secretariat of Planetary Initiative for the World We Choose (launched at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine; Episcopal, NYC, 1982)He is a contributing editor of New Age Magazine. But read this….
Robert McNamara, secretary of defense under Nixon, prayed to the full moon along the Potomac River, according to journalist Edith Roosevelt. The Lucis Trust endorsed McNamara’s tenure as head of the World Bank. Back to the Temple of Understanding.
It worked directly out OF the UN until 1984, when it moved to… the Cathedral of St. John the Divine (Episcopal; NYC) Those involved in it’s founding were: the late “Isis Priestess” of anthropology, Dame Margaret Mead, of the Order of St. John; Edward West, Order of St. John’s Canon; UN secretary general Robert Muellar, also involved with the Lucis Trust; Winifred McCulloch, leader of the NYC based Teilhard de Chardin Society.
After an expose on Edith Roosevelt, the temple was dormant for a few years. The temple was revived at the Cathedral of St. John in 1984, at a ceremony presided over by Bishop Paul Moore (Cathedral of St. John the Divine, NYC) AND… the Dalai Lama. According to a past executive director, Priscilla Pederson, the present board overlaps that of David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission, a one-world government power group. So you see, many things surrounding the movement on this earth for a one-world government, and “New Age christ,” in the political realm are at work. Many leaders in this country do not come out and say they are involved, but the money and power of the ones who are, control their decisions. Satan never came right out and said what he was doing or where he was headed in the Garden either! World leaders will not just wake up one morning and say, “Let’s start a one-world government… AND religion.”
There are those who still say they are wacko groupies and a fringe group of kooks who have no power or influence. I say otherwise. They are backed by Lucifer/Satan, and we all know, or should, what he is about and what Revelation says about a one-world government and religion. Do we think it will just drop out of the sky one day on the world? And, if so, WHERE will it be headquartered? HOW will the world accept it.. just out of the blue? There is conditioning and patient gradualism taking place in government schools, universities and colleges, and in government, and the courts. The main movement now is on the ecological front. O, they don’t come out and tell you they are aligned with that which is at the very core of it, and maybe men caught up in it don’t fully understand what they are aligned with, but it is New Age just the same. You see, it’s hip and trendy, and it gets them elected and gets them money! Who of us, if we step back and look, and pay attention to current events cannot see the influence AND espousing of ecology and saving mother earth, along with pantheism in psychology, science, health care, all in the political arena? Who cannot see it in the media constantly? What begins in mysticism ends up in the political if… Christians are uninformed and weak!
The root of the New Age is oneness (with self, the universe, and nature, i.e., mother earth), unity, & the One. It is population control… and reduction, global socialism (by any means necessary) that involves religion, and sharing of natural resources, and no borders Seen or heard that lately? They embrace homosexuality, and global taxation, too. It is earth and nature worship. It is all over the media and government. It is hip and popular to the lost, and unfortunately, thousands of uninformed, Christians.
We, as Christians, and I know this may seem redundant, MUST be strong in our faith, know our Bible, and be witnessing. We must be educating our youth, too! Let’s turn off TV & Facebook stuff so much, and get into THE book!And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Romans 13:11-12.
Are we? Do we? Will we? If not, now, when? If not us… WHO?
