The Cosmic Evolution of Optimism
Read Isaiah 41:26
I hope that you see the progression of lies and heresy in New Age teaching. Read now also Isaiah 64:6, Romans 3:10 & 3:23. See why they want to get rid of your Bible? Their teaching is that if we just think good thoughts, get away to some monastery in the Himalayas, and THINK we can, like the little locomotive, we will think our way out of evil and bad and sin, and get the divine in all of us to rule this earth in peace and harmony. O, get “back to the garden” (Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young), or get to Shambala (Three Dog Night) and we will have universal peace. Hug a tree and pray to Gaea, and awake to the great Self, and One. Hog slop! Read well Isaiah 48:22, 27:21, 59:8. Now read Ephesians 2:14. HE (Jesus Christ) is our peace, and without Him there will never BE peace on this earth! But let’s see what New Age says.
Over twenty five years ago Julian Huxley, avowed secular humanist and defender of science being the interpreter of all life, set a foundation for New Age in this statement, “Man is part of reality, in which and through which the cosmic process has become conscious and has begun to comprehend itself. His supreme task is to increase that conscious comprehension and to apply it as fully as possible to guide the course of events.” Sound political yet? Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Huxley was far from being a mystic, but his vision and ideology is the spark of Cosmic Evolutionary Optimism. (Watch for that word “evolution in upcoming lessons on the teachings of Barbara Marx Hubbard) This teaching invades all areas of the unsaved world and sounds like the way out of all our troubles. Teilard de Chardin, a Jesuit (Catholic) philosopher and paleontologist, said that a progressive evolutionary harmonization and unification of world consciousness eventually reaching “the Omega Point” where all consciousness is fused and all become one WITH The One” will come! Mind & heart deceivers, folks! Please read 2 Timothy 3:13-14 here.
A variety of futuristic thinkers in New Age like Barbara Marx Hubbard and Willis Harman expect, and promote a New Age dawn rising out of the ashes of the old Western world and religions. She says, “...we must embrace “evolutionary futurism” (see also Alvin Toffler’s book Future Shock) which incorporates (that mixture in their trick bag again) all the strength of “evolutionary futurism” (hope for radical evolutionary change). With millions actively praying, listening to the inner intuition, expanding their awareness toward whole centered consciousness, we see that evolution itself is a new superhuman species which will be as superior to the present day humanity as we are to the apes.” Sounds like Hitler in some ways!
In her book The Evolutionary Journey she explains what she means by “spiritual futurism” “At this moment of our planetary birth (see also her book Birth 2012 and Beyond), each person is called upon to recognize…. that the “messiah is within.”Christ consciousness or cosmic consciousness is awakening in millions of Christians and non-Christians. The messiah within will lead all of us forward into a glorious future.” We should remember that her books and writings do not appear in some obscure paper somewhere, read by only a few, but are in the mainline magazine The Futurist, and are read by many, MANY politicians and power brokers of this nation and the world!
The Bible is clear. This world is moving to a cataclysmic conclusion because of the sin and rebellion of man, his refusal to bring the true God into His life through Jesus Christ, and the whims of the prince of the power of the air, Satan. Lucifer IS Satan, whether New Agers want to accept it and believe it or not. Also, man thinks, that if he thinks something hard enough, and teaches it long enough it will be so. Not happening! Man also thinks that if he ignores the Bible and does away with it, it, and God will go away. Again, not happening!
Hope for the future does not rest in the collective thinking and false teaching of man! It rests in and on God and His Word! The end of this world will not be the everlasting higher consciousness of New Age or the rebirth that Barbara Marx Hubbard and others teach, but the judgment, fiery destruction, and re-creation spelled out in the Bible! They believe in world “transformation.” God says it is “Re-CREation.” THEY teach that man is growing upward and better with the help of the “Universal spirit.” God says man is loaded with sin and is getting worse, and the Bible clearly spells out exactly who that “Universal spirit” is. It is Satan. Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Ephesians. 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places and 2 Corinthians 4:4 speaks of the god of this world blinding minds! Amen and amen!!!!!
This is a powerful movement, and it is powerfully connected politically, through money grabbing, devil controlled politicians. It is in the UN and other leaders of this world, which Ezekiel 28 clearly teaches. It is in businesses through their success seminars. It is in schools through the NEA and government. It is in Hellywood, magazines, music, commercials, TV, actors and actresses, and movies (like Hellywood’s perversion of Noah). It is far more than just a small group of wackos who don’t bathe regularly. Christians, and pulpits must be aware and living close to the Lord Jesus Christ, and witnessing as much as possible. We must be sober (serious) and strong in the Lord, not weak.
1 Thessalonians 5:6-9 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
And he is devouring many today! We need to be a really bright light, and give out Gospel tracts with truth in them.
