My Journey Out New Age Spiritualism: Laura Maxwell’s Story.

As a spiritual counsellor, I’m honoured my work is shared worldwide via satellite TV, radio, books, magazines and so on. My mother and I were taught Lucifer is god when involved in new age spiritualism. I now expose the Globalist Agenda – the elite NWO cabal, from my inside knowledge of Luciferianism and Theosophy.

‘Laura educates people, from personal experience, on the dangers of New Age, Witchcraft, Occult and their Luciferian links to the New World Order’s global spiritual agenda, etc.’

As my story was recently published in Premier Christianity I’m resharing this previous post for those new to my blog. It’s a great honour to be featured in the UK’s leading Christian magazine and I am so grateful to God for this opportunity to share His love and power with others.

My Journey Out New Age Spiritualism – Laura Maxwell’s Story.

 (Taken from the About page).

We sincerely hope to humbly contribute to the journeys of those on a spiritual quest!

Do you enjoy ghost hunting, spirit communication or the paranormal? Maybe you explore esoteric or metaphysical interests, eastern mystical practices, or evolving spiritualities?

Perhaps you follow an ancient path based on Paganism? Do you practice Magick, Wicca, Neo-New Age, or the Occult?

As an open-minded seeker of truth, please consider hearing from myself and others steeped in such lifestyles. Discover secrets we experienced via supernatural realms and where it eventually led us.

When I was a Spiritualist, I was taught the New Age agenda – to recruit masses globally to Luciferianism and the New World Order. In those days, I fully agreed with such plans. Now, I’m aware of the truth behind it all! As supernatural whistleblowers, we expose inside secrets from top spiritual leaders.

Silence is consent. If you care, please share.

Silence is consent. If you care, please share.

Unfortunately, those like us are not often seen in the popular media. The world tends only to hear the one point of view, which is of course biased reporting! A spiritual form of propaganda is occurring. Even within scientific communities, they claim to portray ALL theories of any topic of debate. But with ‘spirit communication’, our ‘theory’ is rarely given air time!

You may suspect this is a conspiracy theory, so please use your critical thinking skills. Research online for hard evidence to back up our claims!

Truth

ೋƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒೋ

In 1996, I began to disclose my own private experiences. From 2008, I’ve been very privileged to share regularly on satellite TV and radio shows, broadcast over Europe and USA. Some of them are included in the playlist below.

The below interviews on Truth Frequency Radio, including The Kev Baker Show and other shows remain a few of my personal favourites. Namely because they air on Truth Frequency Radio – a very popular alternative network with a large global following of spiritual seekers.

Some of my TV interviews were requested by and aired on various Christian and secular TV channels across Asia, Russia, Pakistan, Ukraine, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

I also host a weekly talk show on Eternal Radio. On ‘The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell.’ I interview international guests, who share their dramatic true stories, eg, Ex Mediums, Ex Psychics, Ex Witches, Ex Pagans, etc. Some of them are authors and some have also shared their stories on TV.

My story has been featured in various Christian, secular and Spiritualist magazine articles, newspapers, a site of the leading Occult awareness ministry of 30 years in the UK, one of the leading Occult awareness sites in USA, other well known ministry websites and blogs. (Most of these people listed, have appeared on TV – please see the links).

Other overseas ministries have translated it into, for example, Croatian, Danish, Hindi, Spanish and Portuguese for magazines and TV. See link for translations.

In 2013, it was included in two new school books, now being used in secular schools across Australia and New Zealand.

It was an honour when EX Satanist, Jeff Harshbarger, asked me to write a chapter for his 2nd book ‘Dancing With The Devil,’ published in USA, by Charisma House, 2012. (I wrote a review for his first book). Jeff has been a guest on many Christian TV and radio programs in the USA and beyond.

Another well known US preacher and TV evangelist is including my testimony in a new book, due to be published in late 2016. (Details here, once released).

It’s also been an honour to be a guest speaker in churches, venues & conferences across the UK, or radio stations around the world.

During which, I share my testimony, or teach about the New Age, Occult or also the ancient spiritual roots of Halloween.

Plus I expose evil crimes committed by some Satanic and occultic groups on Halloween. (See my interviews with Ex Satanists over the years).

Laura Maxwell’s Story.

‘What New Age Spiritualism Means To Me Now.’

Supernatural phenomena interested me since childhood. I loved reading children’s books containing ‘ghost stories’, or watching TV programs about ‘ghosts’. If Harry Potter had been written then, I’m sure it would have been one of my favourites.

A few psychic episodes as a child added to the intrigue I felt. My mother’s uncle lead a Spiritualist Church and was also high up in Freemasonry. Mum had also experienced psychic events since her childhood, but didn’t pursue it seriously until later. By the time I began Secondary School, she felt ready to explore further. Once, when walking her dogs in the park, a Medium approached. He saw her potential as a Medium and invited her to a local Spiritualist Church in Glasgow, Scotland.

Very quickly, Mum became totally engrossed by the supernatural. As a new member of the Spiritualist Church, she attended Sunday services, mid week psychic development groups, Yoga classes, etc. She shared everything she learned with me. I also became fascinated. Her heart’s desire was to train in Mediumship. The other Mediums encouraged this, asking her to join an Open Circle and to meditate with them to channel ‘spirits of the deceased’. Mum was keen to develop her abilities of Clairvoyance, Clairaudience and Clairsentience and to learn from other Mediums.

Every time Mum booked a Private Sitting for a Life Reading with a resident or visiting Medium, she’d buy a recording of the session and we’d listen to it later. It amazed me that a half-hour recording could contain so much explicit communication from alleged ‘spirits’. Specific facts were relayed about our lives, in minute detail. Precise names, places and dates were often given. It was obvious the Mediums weren’t charlatans, falling upon names by sheer chance. They accurately described the physical appearance, personalities and even repeated common phrases of our apparent dead relatives, as they conversed with spirit entities.

I also joined the Spiritualist Church in Glasgow. Mum and I devoured mystical books on Yoga, opening the chakras, Crystal Healing, Reincarnation, Alternative Therapies, etc. Attending New Age Centres and Psychic Fairs, we absorbed as much information as we could to help in our ‘spiritual enlightenment’. With our passion for environmental and conservation concerns, social justice and international peace, we gladly participated in attempting to heal people and animals, through either contact or distant psychic healing.

We also read books on positive thinking. A favourite was, ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’, by Norman Vincent Peale, a 33rd degree Free Mason, who also believed in Clairvoyance, claiming to see his dead father at meetings.

Going Deeper

Laura's season as a goth

Laura’s season as a goth

Eventually, we attended Transfiguration Sessions. Mum developed in the area of Automatic Writing. Mediums predicted I’d become an author on behalf of Spirit Guides and a Psychic Artist, drawing portraits of ‘dead relatives and Spirit Guides’ for clients. I very briefly experimented with Kirlian Photography; using infra red film I captured images of ectoplasm as it formed.

Over the next 10 – 15 years, we’d often hear of Mediums who could no longer control when spirits spoke to, or through them. Many Mediums had nervous breakdowns. Some attacked people claiming their Spirit Guides had forced them to, or were admitted to psychiatric wards.

We heard reports of ‘poltergeist activity’ in Medium’s homes. At first, we accepted explanations that mischievous or obnoxious spirits could sometimes come through and it was a potential hazard of the job. But when it happened to us, it became intolerable and impossible to function properly.

Our beloved friends, the other Psychics and Mediums, kindly tried, but failed to free our home from spirits. The spirits spoke to Mum constantly, giving her no rest, depriving her of sleep, attacking her physically, chapping loudly from within wardrobes, slamming all the doors, etc.

On one of the occasions when they forced her into a trance against her will, she was frying food. When she came out of trance, the kitchen was consumed by fire. I arrived home after the Fire Brigade had extinguished it, just before it spread to other rooms. We all realized Mum, our dogs and cats could have been killed. One afternoon, Mum’s elderly Aunt who had also visited Spiritualist Churches, felt invisible hands grab her and throw her down our stairs. Her wrist was broken. Another day, while approaching shops, I watched in horror as Mum was lifted from the ground and catapulted from the pavement, landing on the bonnet of a passing car. This particular incident happened more than once.

Hellish Encounters

Naturally, we decided to withdraw from Spiritualism and kindly asked our ‘Spirit Guides’ to leave. To our shock, they laughed and insulted us. They began to physically attack us. This was deeply perplexing, as they’d provided guidance and kindness for many years! It became obvious they’d clearly deceived us, pretending to be benevolent, when in reality they were wicked all along.

It dismayed us that all the Spiritualist Mediums and Psychics we knew and dearly loved, had clearly been deceived too. After all, it was they who had introduced us to those spirits. They’d also assumed such ‘Spirit Guides’ and ‘friends’ were genuine.

However, the biggest shock came when even our supposed ‘dead relatives’ turned against us too! They also mocked and hit us. The spirits warned we couldn’t leave the occult, as we had unknowingly granted them control from the first day we invited them into our lives! It became clear to Mum and I there was something dangerous and deceptive in Spiritualism and forms of spirit communication, if even the Mediums who had brought our fake ‘spirit friends’ to us had not discerned their true spiritual identity.

A Christian Encounter

‘You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free’, John 8:32

Susan, a Christian I’d met in a Psychology Tutorial, at university, invited me to her Pentecostal Church. She explained other Psychics who had experienced similar tragedies were set free from spiritual attacks when they accepted the Biblical Jesus Christ as their Saviour, (not the New Age false Christ).

I did feel an atmosphere and presence in her church I’d never known and I hungered for it. When they prayed for healing and spoke in tongues, I senses instantly they had a supernatural power, but I wasn’t sure what it was! To me, Jesus was just a Healer and Medium.

That night when I returned home, the spirits were furious that I’d visited the Pentecostal Church. I was sure they’d try to kill me. (To learn more of those few days, please watch my TV interviews!)

I cried out to God in sheer desperation. I asked if He was real, to please speak to me through a bible I found. I had a divine revelation the bible was totally true, so renouncing Spiritualism, I came to Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I received Him as my Saviour and asked Him to cleanse me from all sin. Finally, I had saw the light. I had found truth. I had found Love Himself! Much to my own surprise, I had become a Christian, something I thought I’d never do! Never say never folks!

The very next morning, a Romany Gypsy appeared at my door. I’d been thinking about her for hours and now there she stood! She said she had got born again and that Jesus had sent her to tell me I was now on the right path! I began attending the church I’d just visited.

A Darker Tragedy Strikes

Just a few months later, during my 2nd year at university, Mum’s health deteriorated & her ‘Spirit Guides’ became more violent and even threatened to control her and use her to kill people. Mum’s doctor couldn’t accept poltergeist activity and was sadly diagnosed as Schizophrenic. Mum was detained in a Psychiatric Hospital, much to the utter shock of my Mum and myself.

Although my Mum gave her heart to Jesus a few months later, the Pentecostal Church I’d joined had no experience at that point, of helping people like Mum. At that time, they didn’t have the Deliverance Ministry. As a baby Christian myself, I didn’t yet know there were Christians who could’ve cast those demons out of my Mum in Jesus Name. After months of heavy sedation, the psychiatrists discharged her, but when she returned home, she endured further harassment from spirits. Sadly, the church I belonged to didn’t yet have experience of casting demons out of homes or people.

My pastor was young and inexperienced. He assumed mum and I were just over imaginative or mentally ill. So, we received no help. To my utter shock and dismay, my mother committed suicide.

Although not rare for someone to do … over the past couple of decades I’ve heard of many around the world, affected by the New Age or Occult have been in psychiatric wards or killed themselves. Therefore, I feel it emphasizes the crucial importance for Christians to embrace the Deliverance Ministry, more commonly known as Exorcism, and become God’s instruments to release freedom to such tortured people in Jesus Name.

(Over the years as a Christian, I have been honoured and delighted that the Holy Spirit has used me to see people & homes be set free from demonic harassment/poltergeist type activity, etc). “Greater is He (Jesus), that is in you; than he (satan) that is in the world.”

My chains are gone!

Soon after, I found another Pentecostal Church. It was experienced in Deliverance prayer – casting out demons. The co-Pastor, visited my mum’s home, successfully cleansing it the first time they prayed. At the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, all the spirits left and never returned. Praise God! Later, I sold Mum’s home without worrying the new tenants would be harassed.

The Pentecostal Church I attend, doesn’t serve up dead religious traditions or control. Instead it’s lively, loving and joyful. Members are trained by the Holy Spirit to prophesy of the future. Minds and bodies are healed and other miracles, signs and wonders occur. Actually, in a couple of years I saw more people healed in Pentecostal Churches than I ever saw in over ten years at Spiritualist meetings.

Deception Exposed

When I became a Christian, even before I had read the Biblical warnings of the Occult in Deuteronomy chapter 18, I suddenly saw the truth. I instinctively realized what had happened. The missing piece of the jigsaw slipped into place. When our ‘dead relatives and Spirit Guides’ began to attack us, it indicated those lying evil spirits had deceived us, merely impersonating our loved ones. It made complete sense when Christians explained from the bible, it’s impossible for dead souls to return to talk with us, as they remain in heaven or hell for eternity.

Also, the bible describes spirits are evil ‘fallen angels,’ or demons. They’ve existed since before creation. They possess vast psychic knowledge of our families & historical figures down the generations. Like ‘shape shifters’ from movies, they can easily disguise their evil form to pose as our ‘deceased family,’ to mimic ‘Spirit Guides,’ or any famous celebrity that ever lived. With their supernatural powers they can perform many false miracles. Through hypnosis etc, they can even produce false visions of your ‘former lives’.

They are masters of disguise. The Bible says that entities who work through Witches, Mediums, Ghost Hunters, etc, are called ‘familiar spirits’. They are psychic and very familiar with how all your ancestors looked and spoke, as they were on the earth at the same time. Thus, these entities can impersonate them perfectly. The Hebrew word for familiar spirits actually translates as ‘demon,’ evil spirit.

This is emphasised in passages such as 2 Corinthians 11 to 14 : “And no wonder! For Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” The evil spirits working through Spiritualism, Ghost Hunting, etc, are evil demons. They serve Satan to deceive precious Mediums and others, appearing as dead relatives, Spirit Guides, ascended masters, goddesses, Reiki healing guides, aliens, fairies and so on. (Please see my article on how to ‘Test The Spirits’, or watch my TV programs on this crucial topic.)

The counterfeit nature of spirits makes sense, because many top Mediums even claim that Lucifer is god and the source of all psychic powers! (Benjamine Creme, David Spangler, Madam Helena Blavatsky, etc). They believe Lucifer is still an angel of light; god; the Saviour, and that he did not fall and become Satan, as the Bible states. Thus, Luciferianism is one of the roots of the New Age and Spiritualism. Madam Helena Blavatsky, a self proclaimed Luciferian Medium, was called the ‘mother of the New Age movement’. (Please see my article or watch my TV programs on this topic.)

Before I left the Occult, I was unaware the Bible lovingly advises in 1 John 4 verse 1 to 3 : “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God … every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus has come in the flesh is not of God … And this is the spirit of the Antichrist …”

Please see my note with directions on how to Test The Spirits, in the menu bar at the top. I’ve known countless numbers who have challenged Guides and other spirits, to show their true identity, in Jesus Christ’s name. Often they scream as they reveal their true evil form.

A Crucial Observation

Since I left Spiritualism and became a Christian, I have never been contacted by any spirit claiming to be a ‘dead relative’ or ‘Spirit Guide’! All such supernatural activity stopped, when I found the truth, that they were demons impersonating family or spiritual beings! You’d think, if they were truly real, they’d still try to ‘contact’ me!

Sharing With Others

About Jesus

When a Spiritualist, I’d regarded Jesus as just a cosmic force; part of the universal consciousness, a reincarnation of another god or great Healing Medium. Since my conversion in 1994, I’ve met, spoken to & read of many Ex Psychics, Ex Gypsies, Ex Mediums, Ex Witches, Ex Luciferians, and even Ex Satanists. They all discovered the entities of their ‘Spirit Guides’, ‘dead relatives’ or ‘goddesses’, were not who they claimed to be. These people were also set free from demonic attack after receiving Christ into their lives & receiving His overwhelming love and deliverance into spiritual freedom, (Exorcism).

Two successful Glasgow Mediums, Sadie Bryce and Geordie Aitken also became Christians. Sadie went to the same Spiritualist Church I did. She spoke of her occult past in BBC programs and an audio recording. Paul Watson wrote a book detailing Geordie’s experience. As Christians, Sadie and I wrote to each other and I met Geordie several times, discovering we all had been misled by deceiving spirits in the same ways. Geordie himself lost friends to demonically induced suicide. He spoke on my behalf at my mum’s funeral.

Jesus Christ healed me of a phobia of heights and physical conditions including Fibromyalgia and migraine headaches. He has given me joy and peace I simply never knew existed. His very tangible Presence of pure love is more real than any powerful encounter I experienced within Spiritualism, New Age or Mystical practises. I am forever grateful to Him for transforming my life and I give Him all the glory.

The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell, on Eternal Radio.

The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell, on Eternal Radio available on tunein.com

I now host a weekly show on Eternal Radio, called ‘The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell,’

On it, I interview international guests, who share their dramatic true conversion stories. My guests include former Mediums, Psychics, Witches, Pagans, Satanists and so on.

Some of them are authors or have shared their stories on TV and radio.

Since 2008, I’ve shared my life story, on satellite TV, radio, in conferences and churches. I also write for magazines. I don’t receive payment for this. I’m delighted and blessed to hear from people worldwide. They share they’ve also been saved out of the New Age and Occult – by the transforming, mighty power of our loving Saviour and Friend, the Lord Jesus Christ. Some say it was my testimony that helped lead them to Jesus. Hallelujah!

A Final Word

I continuously hear from more people who are turning away from Spiritualist Meetings, Tarot Card Parties, Yoga, Meditation, Reiki and all other spirit empowered practises.

A few years ago, I completed a testimony-based novel, containing some detail of events Mum, our friends and I experienced within the occult.

It also contains some wonderful encounters with Jesus and angels, very different from what we experienced in Spiritualism.

As it’s self published, it’s only available directly from me, but should be on Amazon, by mid 2017!

COVID-19 Healing Testimonies Worldwide To Encourage You.

My dear friend Pastor friend Arthur Perales, shares encouraging reports from Mexico where he lives.

Please read the English translation below this COVID-19 healing testimony from Mexico.

”Testimonio de Nicolas Venecia, pastor y ENFERMERO, en el frente de batalla dentro del hospital en San Miguel, Buenos Aires trabajando escribe:

“Hay infectados y gente que murió, oro para que cuando los enfermeros cristianos pasemos los enfermos sanen como con la sombra de Pedro, estamos orando y creyendo que hay gente siendo sanadas, oramos por un paciente y le dio negativo y esta fuera de peligro”

***Acompañame en oración por él y todos los enfermeros, enfermeras, medicos , paramedicos y personal que son cristianos en los hospitales, que Dios les proteja y les use para sanar a los enfermos, no solo médicamente sino con el poder de Dios. En el nombre de Jesucristo AMEN ALELUYA!!!”

Testimony of Nicolas Venice, pastor and NURSE, on the front of battle inside the hospital in San Miguel, Buenos Aires working writes:

“There are infected and people who died, gold so that when Christian nurses pass the sick heal as with Peter’s shadow, we are praying and believing that there are people being healed, we pray for a patient and gave him negative and is out of danger”

*** Join me in prayer for him and all the nurses, nurses, doctors, paramedics and staff who are Christians in hospitals, may God protect them and use them to heal the sick, not only medically but with the power of God. In the name of Jesus Christ AMEN HALLELUJAH!!!”***

My dear friend Pastor friend Arthur Perales said, ”This is actually happening in Argentina. My friend Nick Prince is praying for the sick inside the hospital, he’s a nurse there.”

I’ve heard of such healing testimonies already, from UK where I live, and from worldwide. We can all pray for more! Hallelujah!

You may ask how are we to do this when we can’t go out to visit the sick?

I’ve used the phone or Skype for years, or sent people my tv/radio shows and by watching/listening to it, the sick have got healed and demons have came out them and their homes.

Even with social distancing, we can still pray for neighbours and people on the streets, or while shopping. Lead them to Jesus and see them healed. Yes, even with the social distancing rule, I’ve been doing that and know of others around the world doing it too. What the devil means for harm, God can use for good, hallelujah.

Be encouraged friends, step out in faith! Please, read The Book of Acts and The Book of Revelation, in the Bible.

If you want to ask for God’s help and ask Jesus Christ to become your Saviour, please see this link, or watch the below video.

Praying for you all, dear friends. God bless you all. Laura Maxwell.

AND

BEYOND EARTHLY REALMS.

 

Author and broadcaster Jason Carter, wrote the following article. You may remember TV and radio broadcasts featuring myself and my good friend and fellow host on Eternal Radio, Jason Carter. I highly recommend his articles.

Coronavirus and Global Power by Jason Carter.

Please also watch Jason’s below video. It contains extra information, not included in his article here.

Global power lies in the grasp of the few. Their idea is not power for the people, but power for themselves. This is the intrinsic difference between globalism and populism. Globalism shackles the masses while populism (although imperfect) generally attempts to free the individual and uplifts a nation. Perfect government is Jesus coming theocratic rule.

Globalism looks towards a totalitarian world government, the kind prophesied in the bible, ruling the peoples anti-democratically by implementing complex deals and agreements, trade, health, averting so-called global catastrophes, enacting wars and so on. These drive tyrannical global policies into law through fear, giving more power into globalist hands and continued stripping away of sovereignty from nations.

 “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that, it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff to Barack Obama.

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” David Rockefeller.

In any other circumstance these new laws would be flatly rejected by the people, but while in a state of panic, instilled and propped up by the mainstream media’s relentless drumming in of whatever the current crises maybe, the people are not in a position to see objectively.

Hegelian Dialectic

They are bombarded relentlessly with fear stories. They are reduced to individual panicked survival, rather than seeing the true global picture before them.

It is the propagandists best trick in the book, utilised by Hitler and his minister of propaganda – they said ‘relentless repetition’ was the key to getting the people to believe what they wanted. They planned cable TV to get that box into every home. They knew the power television could hold over the masses. Today TV is in every room in the house, in our pockets and worn like jewellery upon our wrists. Repetition is everywhere. Our thoughts are not our own. The propagandists dream has been realised.

The people are panicking and want an end to their media imagined nightmares. There is a power button of course. The information could be stopped in an instant but the user is addicted. In the meantime anything is accepted when fear controls the individual. Notice how many levels of control can be exerted over the entire global community just by fear-mongering over a virus.

Notice how they prioritised the reporting of Coronavirus during Brexit coverage – a historical moment for the UK – programming the masses with what really mattered. Not Brexit, but disease. Not freedom, but fetters. That is how they embed fear. That is how they attempted to disempower Brexit.

This is Antichrist installing tactics at its best. Propaganda has the power to override nations, shut down nations, cripple growing economies, close public gatherings, control church events and even quarantine pastors, enact martial law, take away liberty and freedom. Stop travel. All this is happening and on the whim of a virus that will soon be yesterday’s news. Along with all the other calamities that should have killed us all by now.

Prince Charles spouted doom at the 2009 climate conference – but we are still here. Time to wake up and see crisis events for what they really are. Crisis = fear = more control = totalitarian end.

This is the dystopian future. Like the slow boiling frog that doesn’t realise what’s happening before it is too late. It is a clever way to control the masses, one crises after another, especially when they are losing the information war. They have got to throw a spanner in the works to halt the uprising, to halt the progress, to halt the moving away from a globalist ideology. The brainwashed people are waking up. They don’t want them to see that there’s another way. A liberating and empowering way, where power returns to the people.

George Orwell quote – From Trumpet Blast Warning by Jason Carter.

Some crisis real, some seized upon and exaggerated, others flat out fake, but all disseminated directly through the mainstream media who should by now be completely untrusted. They are are the enemy of the people. News, dramas, documentaries, Hollywood films, actors, music…all with one single message….globalism, pro the system, anti the family, undermine traditional family and gender, destroy community, and look to government as the only hope.

Confidence in the mainstream news should be at an all time low by now. It is surprising the sway it still holds on the populace – the fake news isn’t where we’ve been told to look, it’s right under our noses, spouted by those who are themselves propagating fake news. Objective balanced journalism does not exist anymore – the news is the mouthpiece for the globalist monopoly. Crises events are used as a means to further their agenda.

I’ll never forget what Rahm Emanuel, the chief advisor under Obama, who I believe is now Mayor of Chicago, once said, (from memory, so maybe not a perfect quote), – “You never let a serious crisis go to waste, and by that I mean you can do things you couldn’t do before.” We have seen this time and time again. Government seizing opportunity to clamp down on its citizens through crisis both real and fake.

 

Keep our eyes on Jesus, especially during these end times.

Jesus settles the problem. Believers have not a spirit of fear. For those who fear have not been perfected. JESUS peace disables fear, peace therefore disables the globalist programming. Peace takes us into the real world and out of the fabricated media world to think for ourselves. Peace takes us into freedom, out of fear, and free to live our lives the way we want, without it being dictated to by those who only want to control it.

Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. John 14:27; John 16:13

Jesus is the only one we should be listening to, not the mainstream media.

God bless you all.

Jason and I discussed this yesterday. I mentioned that we can share the Gospel with as many as possible. Amongst the fear and illness, we can lead many people to Jesus, pray for the sick to be healed and show the love of Jesus by bringing food to our neighbours and so on.

We all will die one day, whether of this virus or something else. It’s crucial people know the Lord and will enter heaven after death. The Lord wants none to perish in hell. Jason agreed with me.

So, don’t panic, instead let’s take the opportunity to keep sharing the truths about Christ and His salvation, while we can!

God bless you all,

Disarming the Fear Pandemic: A Vital Message for the Church in This Hour.

Do Not Fear: A Message For Believers On Coronavirus.

Eternal Radio Hosts Jason and Laura with Stephen and Valma Merrick.

You may remember TV and radio broadcasts featuring myself and my good friend and cohost on Eternal Radio, Jason Carter.

Author and broadcaster Jason Carter, wrote the following article.

Disarming the Fear Pandemic: A Vital Message for the Church in This Hour.

What is the root cause of fear? Simply put, it is the fear of dying.

I know a Christian man whose wife was having a panic attack. He quipped; “What’s the worse that could happen? You die, and go home to be with the Lord!” His comment immediately arrested her anxiety as she realised what would follow.

Some Christians fear death. This is evidenced by their panicked reaction to external threats in our world. Some believers are fearful of catching the Coronavirus. Yes, we must be wise to protect ourselves, just as we would the common cold or flu, but we must not let the fear of death be the driving force.

Jesus expressly told us to not be afraid of those who can kill the body but after that can do no more. (Luke 12:4)

You see, there is an ‘after that’. For the believer, their lives gloriously continue the moment they die.

Death is but an exciting gateway into a continuation of the journey with their Heavenly Father in the bright presence of the Son for all eternity. It is where they are rejoined with their believing loved ones, amid the throngs of angels in heavenly chorus.

In light of this biblical reality, what on earth is there to fear?

Unfortunately the word ‘death’ doesn’t really help to convey a positive experience. The term itself evokes finality – a fearful expectation of the unknown or an outer darkness.

However, the Apostle Paul knew differently. He described death as sleep. Paul referred to the believers who ‘sleep in death’, and ‘who have fallen asleep.’
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-15; 1 Corinthians 15:18).

Jesus also described the dead girls condition as that of sleeping. Of the dead and entombed Lazarus, Jesus declared he was sleeping and would wake him up.

To understand that for the believer, sleep is merely occurring, changes everything. Sleep doesn’t evoke feelings of fear, but rather the opposite – PEACE!

The Psalmist wrote; “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” (Psalm 4:8)

For Stephen, who met a violent end by stoning, the bible records that he saw Jesus welcome him and then he fell asleep. For the believer, even a painful end can be a peaceful one with Jesus.

For the Christian, death is not to be feared, even in the slightest. The apostle Paul had no fear of death. He said, ‘to be absent from the body was to be at home with the Lord’ (2 Corinthians 5:8). He should know. Paul was no stranger to heaven and was caught up there during his life. That is why he could confidently declare; “Where oh death is your sting?” Indeed. For the Christian, where is it?

Fear is being used right now as a weapon, deployed through the mainstream media, in an unprecedented global control of the masses. But it can only work on those who are afraid to die.

Once we come to understand that death is merely sleeping and awakening in the bright presence of Jesus, then there can be no fear! As we sing in church, ‘death was arrested’.

Knowing this, we walk through the valley of the shadow of death fearlessly (Psalm 23:4). With this understanding we become free. Fear has thus been disarmed.

We are no longer under fears control and the peace of Christ rules in our hearts. (Colossians 3:15)

We are enabled to clearly hear Jesus personally tell us; “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid,” (John 14:27)

Hallelujah!

More virulent than the Coronavirus is the fear being propagated by it. Fear is enabling an unprecedented move by the globalist powers. As the people cower in fear, Orwellian laws are being rushed through to control the populace.

Journalist Mae Brussell said, ‘Once the people are terrorised, you can force a police state on them.’ This insidious technique is a long established mechanism for governmental control.

Right now it is happening before our very eyes. Stories abound. In Denmark alone the police will be able to enter a house without a permit and forcibly put people into isolation. The stage is being set for a later detention of undesirables. In 2019 Denmark already begun a purging of new testament Christianity. This resulted in the fleeing of believers to other countries. As of April 2019 a law was passed making it illegal to cast out demons.

These draconian laws will remain, just as they did way after the events of 9/11 with the Patriot Act. This law vastly expanded the US Government’s authority to spy on its citizens, even without evidence of illegal activity.

The Coronavirus is one of many tools being used to implement global control of the citizens. It is an unprecedented move. It is of biblical proportions. Note that according to scripture, disease will be unleashed and sorcery (Greek – ‘pharmakeia’) aka the pharmaceutical industry will work in tandem (disease and cure, disease and cure…) These two components will be used as part of the plan to control the planet. Revelation 6:8; 18:23.

Through this crisis the globalists are making a bold move in order to regain lost ground during the populist uprising. What the Holy Spirit warned me of in 2009 is now speedily rolling out across the planet.

Persecution is on the horizon. But it is not a time to allow fear to control. On the contrary it is a time to rise in the courageous spirit of Daniel – to prepare for a future in which we refuse to bow to a system that will require a compromise of our faith.

In the face of tyranny, fear must be disarmed. Fear is the weapon to initiate control. Disarm fear – disarm the enemy. The bible says, “The fear of man brings a snare. But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.” (Proverbs 29:25)

We must supernaturally TRUST in the Lord, above a fear-mongering mainstream media.
Turning it off would be a good first step. The next step would be to expose fear and thereby disarm the enemy at the gates. I will write about this in Part 2.

Jesus said; “Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)

Now would be a good time to receive a revelation of Jesus and His peace in this hour.

God bless you all.

New Ager Seeks Truth: Natalia Lavaggi and Psychic Power, Channelling Guides, Energy Healing, Tarot, DNA Activation, Universe, Twin Flame, and Akashic Records to Freedom.

Natalia Lavaggi channelled spirit guides. Believing: we are all just ‘energy’; Universe as our Source; One Mind; Awakening her Higher Self; Law of Attraction; reading The Secret; Akashic Records; Hindu Gurus; Yoga; Karma; Clearing Blocked Chakras; Meditation; developing Psychic Powers; Energy Healing; Pantheistic View; Metaphysical Workshops; certain Holistic new age practices in Beauty Salons… the list of her new age beliefs and practises goes on!

Natalia Lavaggi

Then, spirits began to attack her! She experienced ‘Sleep Paralysis’. They tried to strangle her, choke her, chasing her in her dreams. Her child even saw the Evil Eye in his room. She purged her home of many books and anything she’d used for divination purposes, crystals, etc.

Through Jesus Name and His power, she got free from their grip. Natalia sees a huge difference between the new age, mystical and eastern practises and an authentic loving relationship with Jesus.

It’s not about new age rituals or ascending, trying to improve and become enlightened, working out our karma, etc. It’s not about us, it’s about Him! He already died on the cross for us and will cleanse and transform us if we ask and follow Him as our Saviour!

Noah’s Great Flood Was Historically Global.

The Flood was historically global, not hyperbolically global.

A review of The Lost World of the Flood: Mythology, theology, and the deluge debate by Tremper Longman III and John H. Walton, with a contribution by Stephen O. Moshier InterVarsity Press, Downers Grove, IL, 2018

by 

book-cover

It was bound to happen eventually. The account of Noah’s Flood has now been subjected to John Walton’s interpretive method, which was previously set forth in other books from his influential ‘Lost World’ series. This latest installment by Walton, professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College and Graduate School, was co-authored with Tremper Longman III, Distinguished Scholar of Biblical Studies at Westmont College.

Ironically, Longman and Walton are the ones imposing a modern secular/sacred dichotomy on the text.

In the same way that Walton previously insisted that Genesis tells us nothing about the material origins of the universe or the biological origins of humanity,1,2 Longman and Walton now claim that, although the Flood was a historical event, the biblical text does not provide a description of the actual event. Instead, Scripture only tells us about the Flood’s theological meaning using figurative language.

Longman and Walton maintain that the Flood is depicted literarily as a global event, but this is intentionally hyperbolic language employed only to highlight the Flood’s great significance. As a historical event, they say, the Flood cannot have been global, because this is precluded by the geologic record.

But, as will be shown, this revisionist understanding of Noah’s Flood is ultimately unfaithful to the inspired text. The Bible does not merely depict the Flood as hyperbolically global, but historically global.

Tangential topics

Longman and Walton address a variety of other subjects associated with the Flood as well, such as Cain and Abel, the Genesis genealogies, the Nephilim, Babel, geological evidence, and widespread cultural flood legends. For sake of space, this review will focus on their primary case for a hyperbolic Flood, and leave these supplemental concerns to be addressed by others.3

Useful concessions

Though Longman’s and Walton’s understanding of the Flood account is generally at odds with the church’s historic view of the Flood as a real, global, catastrophic disaster, it does align at various points. This is helpful to creationists, because we can allow our critics to make our case for us! For example, Longman and Walton say that the toledot structure of Genesis shows that it was intended to record a “sequence of past events” (p. 17). Likewise, the authors insist that the Genesis Flood story was not borrowed from Babylonian myth (p. 80).

Regarding the extent of the Flood, they affirm many arguments creationists have long used to show that the text describes a global Flood. Longman and Walton think that the narrative as a whole is hyperbolic, but they argue strongly that the Flood is depicted as worldwide, not local. They insist that the following points prove the worldwide nature of the Flood (pp. 45–49):

  • All of humanity was destroyed, which could not be accomplished by a regional flood.
  • Noah needed to take animals, including birds, on board.
  • God told Noah to build an enormous Ark rather than instruct him to move.
  • The sources for the water (all the springs of the great deep, floodgates of the heavens) indicate universality.
  • The water was deep enough to cover the mountains (including the region of Ararat) by 15 cubits.

Furthermore, Longman and Walton offer multiple reasons why, according to the account’s portrayal, the Flood must have killed all of humanity except for the Ark’s eight passengers:

  • Human sin was universal (pp. 45, 48).
  • The Flood was the solution to God’s regret over creating mankind (pp. 45, 48).
  • The judgment was a reversal of creation—a ‘do-over’ (pp. 46, 48–49).
  • The text describes a worldwide Flood, which would leave no survivors (p. 45).
  • The text uses “universalistic rhetoric” to portray all people and animals as destroyed by the Flood (p. 70).4

Bait-and-switch propositions

Unfortunately, many of the book’s 17 chapter titles, called “propositions”, are misleading. What is argued in the text of the chapter often goes well beyond the stated thesis. For example, here is Proposition 1: “Genesis is an Ancient Document”. How banal. Who disagrees? But this chapter actually discusses the Bible as a whole, not just Genesis.

Also, it leaps from the reasonable claim that we must understand the Bible according to its historical context to assert these non sequiturs: (1) the Bible does not intend to teach any science, (2) its authority does not extend to science, and (3) it contains scientific falsehoods.

Thus, a more accurate title for this chapter would have been: “The Bible’s divine authority does not ensure that it accurately describes the world”. But methinks that would have given away the game.

Proposition 2 is: “Genesis 1–11 Makes Claims About Real Events in a Real Past.” Again, no disagreement there. But a more accurate title would have been: “Genesis 1–11 makes reference to real events, but it emphasizes their spiritual meaning over historically correct descriptions.”

Proposition 3 is: “Genesis 1–11 Uses Rhetorical Devices.” What they meant was: “The figurative language in Genesis 1–11 is so pervasive that it prevents us from reconstructing any past events mentioned therein.”

Limiting biblical authority

Despite Davis Young’s blurb on p. ii, which praises the authors for their “evangelical high view of Scripture”, Longman and Walton don’t have one. Sure, they profess to believe in inerrancy, and they rightly say that inerrancy applies to all that the Bible “intends to teach” (p. 167). But, for them, these are weasel words, because these authors severely constrict what they’ll allow the Bible to intend to teach. They say the Bible’s “affirmations are not of a scientific nature” (pp. 10–11).

Ironically, Longman and Walton are the ones imposing a modern secular/sacred dichotomy on the text, so that even though the Bible is replete with factual descriptions of nature and historical events, only the ‘spiritual meaning’ carries the authority. In the author’s minds, then, the Bible can wrongly say that the earth is flat (p. 153), that the sky is solid (p. 11), and that our hearts help us to think (p. 9), yet somehow without affirming such things.

However, this is not the way Jesus and the New Testament authors viewed Scripture, as demonstrated by the fact that they treated historical and scientific details in Old Testament narratives as reliable revelation.5

Longman and Walton also approvingly cite the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, when it suits them, to rightly defend the Bible’s use of hyperbole (pp. 34–35). But, they seem to have skipped Article XII, which says:

“WE DENY that Biblical infallibility and inerrancy are limited to spiritual, religious, or redemptive themes, exclusive of assertions in the fields of history and science. We further deny that scientific hypotheses about earth history may properly be used to overturn the teaching of Scripture on creation and the flood [emphasis added].”6

A statement made repeatedly throughout the book, so often that it becomes a mantra, is, “The events are not inspired but rather their presentation and interpretation in the biblical text are” (p. 92, cf. 12, 18, 93, 95, 177). One wonders who Longman and Walton are attempting to argue against here. Creationists do not say that the Flood event itself is the object of inspiration. This would be a category error. God breathes out authoritative words (2 Timothy 3:16), but events are not words.

Nevertheless, when Longman and Walton apply this notion to the Flood account, they say, “There was a real, cataclysmic event, but the Bible does not describe that event authoritatively”, while it “does interpret that event authoritatively [emphasis in original]” (p. 11). So, then, they see the description given in the text as some combination of two possibilities.

First, it may be that the description of the Flood is factually wrong, though not authoritative (fitting in their category of ‘culturally conditioned’). Second, it may be that the description of the Flood is not intended as a literal description (fitting in their category of ‘rhetorically shaped’).

However, the driving assumption behind these false alternatives is that Scripture cannot authoritatively communicate anything that may be subjected to scientific analysis. But what if God wanted to? He doesn’t have to reveal the quadratic equation in order to say something that would qualify as science.

He could simply state that water once covered the mountains by 15 cubits, which is exactly what He did.

Hyperbole hypothesis is a stretch

rainbow

Figure 1
. God’s covenant to never flood the world again was made not only with Noah, but “all future generations” (Genesis 9:12). This implies that the worldwide Flood occurred in the real past and was not merely a literary device.

Though Longman and Walton maintain that “Only the most gullible” would deny the hyperbolic nature of the Flood (p. 39), let me risk their contempt. I do not deny that there are some hyperbolic elements in the Flood narrative, like their example from Genesis 6:5, which describes the wickedness of mankind by saying that “every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (p. 38).

As Longman and Walton point out, surely not every motive for every thought was wicked, including those of righteous Noah (Genesis 6:9). Still, the claim that the extent of the Flood was exaggerated for effect is utterly unconvincing.

Poor parallels

One problem is that the authors’ examples of hyperbole are disanalogous to the Flood account. On p. 49, they say the language in the Flood narrative is like describing the Holocaust as the “total annihilation of European Jewry”. But, as is typical with hyperbole, this is a simple exaggeration of size/scope within a single, short statement. The Flood, by contrast, is a complex narrative carried through several chapters, with multiple, varied indications that the event was actually worldwide and wiped out all of humanity.

Or, take the authors’ example of the Israelite conquest in Joshua 1–12. In several summary statements in Joshua 10 and 11, it says that “Joshua took the entire land” and “left no survivors”. But in Joshua 13 and Judges 1, much territory still remained to be conquered. Longman and Walton say:

“The author is intentionally using universalistic language and intends to convey, rhetorically, that the conquest was complete, but that did not correspond to the actual geographical scope of the conquest, only to the significance of the conquest” (p. 32).

I grant that some of the phrasings are hyperbolic because the author of Joshua is focusing on the victories, but that is not to say that the specifics of the account are ahistorical. The text describes in accurate detail which areas were conquered and which kings were defeated. So, what we have here are islands of hyperbole in a larger non-hyperbolic narrative.

But note that this is not what Longman and Walton are claiming about the Flood account. They say that the real (local) flood event is so obscured by the hyperbole that “we cannot reconstruct the event” (p. 146). They say that all of the elaborate detail in the Flood narrative is not meant as a historical description. It’s all just part of the rhetorical shaping of the story. Really?

Let’s consider some of these details. Longman and Walton dismissively say that many of the specifics in the Flood account, like the duration of the Flood and the precise size of the Ark, “are incidental and don’t matter” (p. 63). But how do they know this? Dismissing the details is a convenient way of not having to account for their presence. But it makes far more sense if the following were recorded due to the fact that they are historical realities.

  • The Ark was 300 × 50 × 30 cubits, was made of gopher wood, had 3 decks, one door, a roof, a window, and was covered inside and out with pitch.7
  • Animals went on in pairs (unclean) and sevens (clean).
  • The mountains were covered by 15 cubits.
  • The Ark landed specifically in the region of Ararat, which Longman and Walton acknowledge is a location uniquely given in the biblical account (p. 80).
  • An elaborate chronology for the Flood year is given with precision down to particular days in specific months in a specific year of Noah’s life.
  • Noah released particular birds in a particular order.

If these kinds of details do not correspond to reality and serve no particular purpose, the account is filled with extraneous twaddle. Longman and Walton say you can tell that a passage is figurative when you “have to work hard to take it any other way” (p. 25) but, here, they are the ones having to dance around the plain sense of the text.

Truncated Noahic covenant

Another problem for Longman and Walton is that God’s dealings with Noah after the Flood indicate that it was worldwide. The authors do offer an interpretation of the Noahic covenant, which is true as far as it goes. They say it highlights God’s continued grace toward sinful creatures (p. 103). It represents God’s commitment “to the continuance of the world and its inhabitants” (p. 104). It indicates “a re-establishment of” and “greater permanence to the cosmos’s order” (p. 120). Okay. Fine. Good. But there’s more.

God’s promise was not merely that He would now preserve the world, it was that He would not repeat such a Flood (figure 1). He said, “never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth” (Genesis 9:11; cf. 8:219:15Isaiah 54:9). But what was God promising not to repeat in Longman and Walton’s view?

Although they don’t say, I suspect they would agree that God was promising not to send another worldwide Flood. But this means, in their view, that even this promise must be part of the hyperbole. In other words, it’s not part of the inspired meaning we can derive from the account; it’s just part of the furniture of the literary device meant to emphasize God’s gracious commitment to preserve the world.

On the contrary, the text explicitly says that God was making this covenant not only with the characters in the narrative—Noah, his family, and the animals—but also with their future “offspring” (Genesis 9:9) and “for all future generations” (Genesis 9:12). God promised us that He would never flood the entire world again, which means He once did so in real history.

The claim that the extent of the Flood was exaggerated for effect is utterly unconvincing.

Survivors outside the Ark?

As mentioned earlier, Longman and Walton admit that the Flood narrative describes the reduction of the world’s population down to eight. But they do not believe this really happened in history. They say it is only “one reading of the story” which understands Noah and sons “to be the ancestors of everyone who is alive today” (p. 162).

Plus, given their acceptance of the conventional millions-of-years age of the earth, “there was no time when all humans were concentrated in a specific area so that even an extensive, regional flood could wipe them all out” (p. 46). Therefore, in their view, many others besides those on the Ark survived the actual, historical flood.

But this is contrary to the text. The Bible emphasizes in a variety of ways that only Noah and his family remained after the Flood. These simply cannot all be chalked up to the aggrandizing of the Flood’s significance.

For example, Noah and sons were commanded to “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth” (Genesis 9:1; cf. 9:7)—the same command God gave to Adam and Eve (Genesis 1:28) because Noah was likewise beginning from scratch. Also, Noah’s sons gave rise to the “nations” (goyim), which spread around the “whole earth” following the Flood (Genesis 9:1910:32).

Finally, the New Testament treats it as a given that God “did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah … with seven others” (2 Peter 2:5; cf. 1 Peter 3:20). So, the notion that the Flood destroyed everyone extends well beyond the immediate context of the Flood account. It is treated as a factual, historical truth in all that follows.

Peter’s perspective

Longman and Walton say that the New Testament references to the Flood treat it as merely “an illustration of the truth that our God is a God who judges sin” (p. 98). Supposedly, they are not making any claims about the historical extent of the Flood. But this is dubious, especially when it comes to the Apostle Peter’s second epistle. In chapter 2, Peter discusses a chronological series of God’s judgments: the pre-Flood angels, the Flood, and Sodom and Gomorrah (2 Peter 2:4–8).

Here, Peter treats the Flood as an event of history, just like these others. All three serve as examples for people today precisely because God really did execute these judgments in history. So, when Peter says that God “did not spare the ancient world” (2 Peter 2:5), he is not implicitly thinking, “as the story goes”. He means to say that God actually destroyed the ancient world.

But was he thinking of the ‘world’ in a restricted sense—referring to only part of the earth? No. In the very next chapter, Peter brings up the Flood again. There, he sets up a contrast between the pre-Flood “world that then existed” which was destroyed by water, and “the heavens and earth that now exist” which will be judged by fire (2 Peter 3:6–7).

Clearly, the present heavens and earth is universal. But then the comparison indicates that the extent of the pre-Flood world, which “was deluged with water and perished”, is also universal. Peter plainly thought the Flood engulfed the entire world, not just a part of it. Sadly, however, Longman and Walton never even mention this passage, let alone offer a response.

Conclusion

Walton’s ‘Lost World’ books offer such a radical rethink of the biblical text that one wonders how the church could have gotten it so wrong for so long. But, when the arguments are evaluated and considered in light of Scripture, it turns out it is not the church that is wrong.

Longman and Walton may be clever scholars who offer some helpful insights but, in the end, their reinterpretation of Noah’s Flood doesn’t hold water.

Ex Spiritualist and New Ager: Janet Ferriday’s Powerful Testimony.

Spiritualism and New Age: Janet Ferriday’s Powerful Testimony.

Janet a former follower, outlines the dangers of Spiritualism and New Age practises. She shares her terrifying experiences of enduring ‘hauntings’ at home.

She found no help in the Jehovah’s Witnesses, or a so called Christian Spiritualist Church. She watched a former Spiritualist, Laura Maxwell, (myself), with Doug Harris on TV. She learned her occultic practises had opened the door to demons in her life.

She fell to her knees repenting to Jesus of all her involvement.

Christ sets prisoners free

Evil spirits tried to strangle her. When she called to Jesus, they lost their grip and left.  Jesus also healed her of Agoraphobia.

She warns why so called gods, goddesses, healing energies and things like acupressure, karate, feng shui and so on, actually are demonic in source and power.

Please listen to her interview below where she shares her journey and how she broke free by the power of Jesus Christ.

Quotes from Spiritualist and New Age leaders that New Age is Satanic.

Lucifer AKA false angel of light, Satan, Destroyer, etc.

New Ager, N. Sri Ram wrote Lucifer, who is Satan, descended from Venus bringing mankind ‘consciousness’. He states:

“The adversary or Satan is no other than Lucifer, the light bearer, the bright Morning Star: He is the Initiator, awakening the divine faculties of intellect on man. He is the king of the “Fallen Angels,” Spirits from higher spheres, who descended among primitive mankind of the Third Race, “… to develop in man, and endow him with his self-conscious Mind, or Manas.” (4)

 

Proof of New Age Satan Worship:
The Leader of the New Age is Lucifer.

By Keith Thompson.

Channelling beings is a major aspect of the New Age movement. If you examine the history of the New Age movement, in the late 19th into the early 20th century, you will see that even the early New Age Theosophists. like Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey were channelling “Ascended Masters.”

According to New Agers, Ascended Masters are a hierarchical spiritual group of evolved beings who have been guiding human progress or evolution forever. As one New Age authority explains:

“These masters are a part of a vast brother-hood of spiritual beings and angelic hosts who work with mankind for the betterment of life on earth.”(1)

It is the New Age claim that all of the leaders of the major religions (i.e., Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and Muhammad) were all Ascended Masters, part of this hierarchical group of enlightened beings.

This concept is untrue and was only invented by the early Theosophists of the 19th century. Nonetheless this belief is very prevalent in the New Age community.

The leader of this group of Ascended Masters, according to the New Agers, is a being called Sanat Kumara, who came from Venus, with other beings, to bring humanity a conscious mind.

You can trace Sanat Kumara back to ancient Hindu traditions; however, the Theosophists have made Sanat Kumara the leader of all of the prominent figures of the world’s religions.

What is interesting, is that when you examine what New Ager’s say about Sanat Kumara and compare it to what they say about Satan (Lucifer), it becomes clear that Sanat and Satan are the same being that they honour.

The first point is the similarities between their names. Satan and Sanat are very similar. Theosophist Dane Rudhyar illustrates the point and explains how Sanat Kumara was responsible for giving man consciousness millions of years ago:

“Satan is an anagram for Sanat Kumara, who in the esoteric philosophy of India is the promethean being who gave mankind the fire of self-conscious and independent, individual selfhood.” (2)

Thus, according to Theosophical New Age belief Sanat Kumara descended from Venus to bring humanity consciousness. However, the same New Agers claim that it was actually Lucifer or Satan who came from Venus, bringing mankind consciousness.

Constance Cumbey notes that New Ager leader Benjamin Crème stated exactly that:

“In a November 9, 1982, radio interview over WLAC, Nashville, Benjamin Crème told the entire Bible belt that Lucifer came to planet earth from planet Venus 18½ million years ago and made the supreme sacrifice for us.” (3)

Lucifer – the magazine by the Lucis Trust, who are linked to The United Nations and many NGO’S.

New Ager, N. Sri Ram notes that it was actually Lucifer, who is Satan, who descended from Venus bringing mankind ‘consciousness’. He states:

“The adversary or Satan is no other than Lucifer, the light bearer, the bright Morning Star: He is the Initiator, awakening the divine faculties of intellect on man. He is the king of the “Fallen Angels,” Spirits from higher spheres, who descended among primitive mankind of the Third Race, “… to develop in man, and endow him with his self-conscious Mind, or Manas.” (4)

An old publication.

The New Age Lucis Trust organization likewise reveals that it was actually Lucifer who came from Venus bringing mankind consciousness.

This proves that the leader of the New Age movement and Ascended Masters (fallen angels) is actually Lucifer. Sanat Kumara and Lucifer are the same being!

“ … like the great teacher H.P. Blavatsky, for whom they had enormous respect, sought to elicit a deeper understanding of the sacrifice made by Lucifer. Alice (Medium), and Foster Bailey (Free Mason), were serious students and teachers of Theosophy, a spiritual tradition which views Lucifer as one of the solar Angels, those advanced Beings Who Theosophy says descended (thus “the fall”) from Venus to our planet eons ago to bring the principle of mind to what was then animal-man. In the theosophical perspective, the descent of these solar Angels was not a fall into sin or disgrace but rather an act of great sacrifice, as is suggested in the name “Lucifer” which means light-bearer.” (5)

John Michael Greer, author of the New Encyclopedia of the Occult, noticed the similarity between Sanat Kumara and Satan:

“Satan has a possible echo in Theosophic lore, where the Lord of the World-the spiritual ruler of the Earth and head of the Great White Lodge-is Sanat Kumara … a Lord of the Flame who descended to Earth from Venus in a fiery chariot some six million years ago.” (6)

Influential Theosophist, Annie Besant, reveals that the satanic pentagram is a sign for the leader of the New Age Ascended Masters, Sanat Kumara (aka Lucifer):

“Sanat Kumara is called ‘Five-Pointed Star’…” (7)

New Ager leader Bejamin Crème admits that Sanat Kumara (aka Lucifer) is the “Lord of the World” for the New Ager’s as well as their God:

“In the coming age many, many people will see God as Sanat Kumara and take the third initiation ….When you take the third initiation you see God, as Sanat Kumara, the Lord of the world, who is a real physical being in etheric matter on Shamballa.” (8)

lucifer-all seeing eye-horus-illuminati-nwo-free masonry

Thus the thesis is established – the New Age worships Satan and holds that Satan is God.

However, Satan is not God.

Satan is just a fallen angel who will be cast to the lake of fire for all eternity along with his other fallen angels (Ascended Masters), of which Jesus Christ has no part, as well as all those who do not get saved through the blood of Jesus Christ!

As the Holy Scriptures proclaim:

“And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” (Revelation 20:10)

Jesus Christ has risen. He is Lord. Amen.

Archaeological Discovery of Sulfur at Sodom and Gomorrah, Biblical Sites.

Archaeological Discovery.

The entire site is covered in the purest form of elemental sulfur found anywhere on the planet outside of a laboratory! This is one of the Sodom and Gomorrah cities that the bible tells us were destroyed by sulfur from the sky.

A viewer of this film on YouTube commented below it stating:

‘After many years being athiest, observing the universe and studying science of astrophysics. I found out that, with respect to the immense space (universe) and science of statistics, this universe is impossible to be Godless. Now here is the bible showing itself as the word and record of truth. Man, i am an eternal believer of a God ever since i have finished my own pursuit of a God but this bible made my belief more than 100 percent eternal. My search is over. I’m at peace knowing God.’

ABOUT  THE FILM MAKERS:

Mainstream Media Analyst. Former TV Presenter David Bass takes a critical look at today’s TV propaganda and how it ties in with the belief system of the ancient pagan mystery schools.

“What R$E is doing is something called contextualization, like Wycliffe does. He is making the Gospel understandable to to the philosophical equivalent of a tribe in the Amazon.”

Archaeological Evidence For The Red Sea Miracle In A New Documentary from Patterns of Evidence.

The British Physicist Sir Colin Humphreys, Director of Research at The University of Cambridge and founder of the Cambridge Centre for Gallium Nitride stated:

“When I look at the Exodus story through the eyes of a scientist, then it contains a lot of observations, which just make sense to modern science.”

INTRODUCING THE RED SEA MIRACLE:

By R. Brian Rickett, January 10, 2020.

https://www.facebook.com/PatternsofEvidenceImage: Moses watching the Israelites pass by in Patterns of Evidence: The Red Sea Miracle.  (© 2019 Patterns of Evidence, LLC.)

The release of the new film, Patterns of Evidence: The Red Sea Miracle is just around the corner. The film marks the third installment in the Patterns of Evidence series. Here, we provide a glimpse of the opening personalities and questions that will engage viewers.

Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the LORD drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. 22 And the people of Israel went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left. 23 The Egyptians pursued and went in after them into the midst of the sea, all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. 24 And in the morning watch the LORD in the pillar of fire and of cloud looked down on the Egyptian forces and threw the Egyptian forces into a panic, 25 clogging their chariot wheels so that they drove heavily. And the Egyptians said, “Let us flee from before Israel, for the LORD fights for them against the Egyptians.” 26 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea, that the water may come back upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.” 27 So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its normal course when the morning appeared. And as the Egyptians fled into it, the LORD threw the Egyptians into the midst of the sea. 28 The waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen; of all the host of Pharaoh that had followed them into the sea, not one of them remained. – Exodus 14:19 (ESV) 

New Patterns of Evidence Film to Explore One of the Biggest Miracles of the Bible

The Exodus event is the greatest story of redemption in the Hebrew Bible. The biblical narrative has captured the imagination of filmmakers and inspired countless numbers of people throughout history. Of all the Exodus miracles, there is one that is especially dramatic and punctuates not only God’s deliverance of Israel, but God’s judgement of Egypt. This miracle is the Red Sea crossing.

But was this event the large-scale miracle depicted by Cecil B. DeMille in his epic film, The Ten Commandments? Could it be that the Red Sea crossing was actually the small scale experience of tens of thousands of oppressed Hebrew slaves, near Egypt, and resulting from naturalistic forces such as an ordinary wind? Or, was the Red Sea crossing more along the lines depicted by DeMille in The Ten Commandments where an impossible deliverance of millions of people, through an untraversable deep sea, miraculously occurred?

On February 18th, 2020 the new Patterns of Evidence film, The Red Sea Miracle, will be featured in over 800 theaters across the US. This much anticipated film is the third installment in the Patterns of Evidence franchise, produced by Thinking Man Films under the direction of filmmaker Tim Mahoney. The contribution of this installment to the Patterns of Evidence series is that it addresses key questions related to the most significant event of the Exodus journey – the Red Sea crossing.

The film opens by introducing some of the challenges involved in the investigation, as well as some of the key players in the discussion. Filmmaker Timothy Mahoney stated, “I landed in Cairo, Egypt in April of 2002 with a small film crew. I was there to investigate the route Moses and the Israelites would have taken in the exodus out of Egypt. I thought this would be a one-year project, but here it is 20 years later. The story continued to grow year after year as I interviewed archaeologists, theologians and scientists with many different theories. Now, I’m eager to share all I’ve learned during that time.”

One important voice that Tim Mahoney interviewed was Hershel Shanks, founder of The Biblical Archaeology Society and Biblical Archaeology Review. When asked about the parting of the Red Sea, Shanks stated, “There are many miracles in the book of Exodus. Whether the Red Sea parted is a miracle. Whether the ten plagues happened is a miracle. Archaeology cannot prove or disprove a miracle.”

Mahoney realized that this investigation would be filled with miracles. Not just the parting of the Red Sea, but bringing up questions such as, “What is the definition of a miracle, does God work within the normal laws of nature or do miracles go outside of the laws of nature?”

Jim Phillips, Curator of Egyptian and Near Eastern Anthropology at the Chicago Field Museum of Natural History, comments, “I am happy for the people who are trying to quote “prove the Exodus,” in the sense that it’s an adventure. It’s a goal that in my opinion is unachievable in one’s lifetime. No one else has been able to do it over the last 2000 years.”

Mahoney also interviewed British Physicist Sir Colin Humphreys, Director of Research at The University of Cambridge and founder of the Cambridge Centre for Gallium Nitride.

He stated, “When I look at the Exodus story through the eyes of a scientist, then it contains a lot of observations, which just make sense to modern science.”

Austrian Egyptologist Manfred Bietak also makes a return appearance after being seen in Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus.

During the making of The Red Sea Miracle, Mahoney made contact with Cece DeMille, granddaughter of epic film producer Cecil B. DeMille, Mahoney asked her, “Why did he spend so much of his career making those types of films?” She responded “Because he loved the Bible. He thought the greatest stories were in the Bible. You don’t have to make them up, they’re there.”

Two geographers are featured in the production. Barry Beitzel, author of the New Moody Atlas of the Bible declares, “It isn’t any wonder that the prophets constantly hark back to the land of Egypt, and to the Exodus event as it becomes a paradigm of God’s miraculous saving power.”

Glen Fritz is author of The Lost Sea of the Exodus: A Modern Geographical Analysis. He further explains, “The first question most people ask is where is Mount Sinai? My first question as a geographer is where was the sea of the Exodus? Where was this sea that was parted and crossed?”

These personalities inject diversity of perspective, and keep the film charged with a point and counterpoint energy throughout, as others join in the debate along the way.

Major Questions in The Red Sea Miracle

Important issues that arise are related to the location and logistics of the Red Sea crossing, such as: “Was the crossing through a small body of water such as a shallow lake, or was it across an incredibly deep area, such as the Gulf of Aqaba?” Other intriguing questions include, “If a wind powerful enough to part the waters of the Gulf of Aqaba was involved, how could humans pass through and not be blown away?” Or, “If normal wind parted the waters, what does this mean as far as the supernatural character of a miracle is concerned?”

The Film Release – One Night Only – February 18, 2020

When asked about upcoming film release, Mahoney explained that The Red Sea Miracle is a Fathom Event with a one night only showing Tuesday, February 18, 2020. “What is unique about this showing in a theater setting is that you can bring friends who might not go to church with you, but will come to see a film in a theater,” he said. ”Afterwards you will have a lot to talk about. And you also can bring your family to see this faith-affirming film with powerful evidence matching the Bible.”

Here is an important endorsement just received:

“I’ve worked in a ministry that deals with the Bible’s history for 30 years. So, it is rare that I get a shot of excitement when I watch a film that attempts to cover such topics. This movie genuinely surprised me. It is scholarly, but thoroughly engaging at the same time. But most of all it tries to be faithful to Scripture. One of the best documentaries I’ve seen on the Bible’s history in years.”—Gary Bates, CEO, Creation Ministries International; CREATION.com

How You Can Help

Mahoney continued, “I want to challenge Thinkers to join our team in getting people out to The Red Sea Miracle Fathom Event. If you are a person who realizes that the Bible has changed the world and wants to share in that mission, then bring everyone you know to see this upcoming film. Here is a link to the resource page for The Red Sea Miracle where you can download posters and photos, and see the shareable trailer.

The Red Sea Miracle is the first film of a two-part release. It will give special attention to the journey from Egypt to the sea, searching the biblical narrative, ancient maps and geographical landmarks to understand the different crossing options and the miracle each would require.

In this film, viewers will not only be introduced to the issues involved, but will be treated to the kind of epic cinematography and biblical recreations only now available to filmmakers. Invite friends and family to this inspiring and enlightening film that will help us all to Keep Thinking!
