Resources to aid your Understanding

As you read this article, you will notice that the dates given in this specific prophecy have passed without incident. This actually verifies the source of the information given to Gordon Michael Scallion as Satanic or simply contrived by a man. The Bible reveals that the true prophet of God will always be 100% correct. This is the evidence of his office. However, in spite of the inaccuracy of Mr. Scallion's predictions, the information in the body of the text remains as applicable and beneficial.
Laura awoke, startled from a deep sleep. Suddenly wide-awake, she watched as the glistening form of a man materialized at the foot of her bed. The apparition appeared as a strikingly handsome man in his late twenties or early thirties, with deep blue eyes and long, shimmering, golden hair. "Oh, Master Levi, its only you", she sighed, "you gave me quite a start." This was not the first time she had seen the vision of Master Levi. As a matter of fact, she knew him well. Master Levi is a "spirit guide" -- one of the ancient wise "ascended masters" that have (according to their own testimony), through many incarnations successfully attained the spirit realm. He first manifested himself to her some eight months ago during a session of Transcendental Meditation (TM), identifying himself as her personal "guide" to higher levels of enlightenment. After many of these encounters, he began manifesting himself as in this instance, usually waking her in the middle of the night. He did not speak, but communicated with her telepathically to follow him into the kitchen. There on the kitchen table, Laura saw a large map of the United States. Master Levi began to magically change the coastline of the of the Eastern Seaboard to reflect the intrusion of ocean waters far inland, inundating many of the densely populated urban as well as rural areas of the East Coast. He then proceeded to reveal to Laura that flood waters would totally inundate much of the American heartland, the entire southwestern third of the nation, and submerge everything but the tallest mountains as far inland as Denver, Colorado. Laura stood frozen in a panicked state of horror. "Master Levi," she pleaded, "tell me this is not the future you reveal. Please, please show me the way to avoid such a disaster." However, the master’s telepathic response was clear, "Indeed, the inhabitants of Planet Earth will experience the coming ‘axis shift’. Much of humanity will perish. The shift will begin in the year 1998, and by the year 2012, the map will be as I have revealed. This the "Wise Ones" have decreed, and the fulfillment is sealed."
Unfortunately, this story is not completely science fiction. Millions of people worldwide have become involved in not only accessing demonic "spirit guides", but also the occult practice of "channeling". "Channeling" is simply the practice of an individual allowing ones self to become a "channel" for the open communication of demonic spirits. This results from tampering with or heavy involvement in the "Occult World". By accessing "spirit guides" via Yoga, TM, hypnosis, or hallucinogenic drugs, one may open the door to demonic spirits. Some of the more infamous proponents of this practice are J.Z. Knight, John Randolph Price, Benjamin Creme, Kevin Ryerson, and Jose Arguelles. The most interesting aspect of this practice is the message delivered by the channeled spirit. Elizabeth Hilstrom, in her book, Testing the Spirits, reveals that these messages follow a fairly consistent pattern and echo familiar themes:
"God is an impersonal force, reality is a creation of the mind, all beings (human and otherwise) are divine extensions of God who are evolving and growing…toward an eventual reunion with God. Another channeled message that has been consistent (and has also been imparted to a number of near-death experiencers) is that a TIME OF GREAT UPHEAVAL, CHANGE AND CATASTROPHE IS SOON TO COME UPON THE EARTH." (emphasis added –ed.) (1)
This message of immanent cataclysm received frenzied attention June 10th of this year after Art Bell, on the Art Bell "Coast to Coast" Radio Talk Show, interviewed Gordon-Michael Scallion of the Matrix Institute. Gordon-Michael Scallion began receiving visions of earth changes in 1979. His true story is much the same as that of Laura at the beginning of this article:
The old man then gave him a map that would aid in finding places of safety as these changes start to occur. Gordon-Michael Scallion has received updates and further visions since this initial meeting with this apparition. This all climaxed on June 10th when he told Art Bell that these changes would begin in earnest the between the last few weeks of JULY AND THE END OF SEPTEMBER, this year. He is predicting that the results of a pole shift of the earth’s magnetic field (that he contends began in the mid-1930s) will trigger violent hurricanes, earthquakes, and volcanoes as the plasma from the earth’s core is upset by the magnetic reversal. He is particularly concerned about quakes in Manhattan, Long Island, and Connecticut in the range of 4.0-5.0. He also sees the entire West Coast becoming very stressed from these initial disturbances. He predicts the entire state of California will become the "Islands of California", with a new coastline as far inland as the Great Salt Lake. (3)
Gordon-Michael Scallion is not alone in
these assertions. As previously stated, this
theme resounds through many of the New
Age and Occult prophecies. One of the
first to foretell of coming cataclysms at
the end of this century was Edgar Cayce,
who was known as "The Sleeping Prophet". Cayce's predictions concerning this issue His predictions were very explicit:
|" 1) Shift of the Earth on its axis
2) Inundation of many coastal regions
3) London will be on the coast
4) Loss of much of Japan
5) Flooding of Northern Europe
6) Greenland disappears
7) New land appears off the coast of North America
8) Widespread destruction-L.A., S.F.- New York City disappears
9) Land bridge from South America to Antarctica
10) Warming of cool areas--cooling of warm areas
11) WW III- Followed by New Age" (4)
The map shown above is a composite which shows (in blue) an approximate combination of land areas predicted by several of the New Age prophets to be flooded by rising oceans. This map is not shown to relay any one prediction with 100% accuracy, but is very similar to the majority of published earth changes maps. Gordon-Michael Scallion predicts earthquake activity will begin this flooding as soon as the end of July, this year.
Ruth Montgomery, known as the "Herald of the New Age", was very prolific in her writings concerning an axis shift:
"A shift of the earth on its axis will occur near the end of this Century, they insisted ... it will, nevertheless, cause wide- spread devastation to life as we know it. Millions will pass into spirit, and those millions who survive in physical body will live through trying times until a new era of peace and understanding is built on what remains, plus newly risen lands. 'Those who fear death should put it firmly from their minds', they insisted, 'as this planetary cleansing is inevitable and our spirits are eternal...' The entire planet is going to go through a period of 'cleansing' in which all the old, outmoded forms of life are to be 'cleansed' so that only those who fully accept the claims of the New World Order and its Messiah, "The Christ", will survive. Mother Gaia will play 'Her' part in this cleansing experience, as 'She' will turn on her axis, creating exceedingly great destruction and loss of life…" (5)
There are others like Scallion who are publishing and selling maps of the earth after the "earth changes". These include Chet Snow, Lori Toye, Aron Abramson, and Ashton Pitre. Nostradamus also foretold of the coming cataclysms around the year 2000. J.Z. Knight, the channeler of Ramtha, predicts mass destruction around the year 2000, and advises that the Pacific Northwest will be a haven of safety. (6) Even Shirley MacLaine told Newsweek magazine back in 1987 that "the earth is moving off its axis". (7)
While Gordon-Michael Scallion predicts a magnetic reversal of the earth’s poles, there are others that believe there will be a physical shifting of the angle of the earth’s rotation. Richard Noone, in his book, 5/5/2000, goes to great lengths (389 pages) to explain that an in depth study of the construction of the Great Pyramid, the arcane secrets of secret societies, and the buildup of ice at Antarctica all point to a shift in the angle of the earth’s rotation (axis shift) on May 5, 2000. He quotes the scenario of such a pole shift written by Dr. Jeffrey Goodman in his book, Are We the Earthquake Generation:
This scenario is certainly a terrifying prospect. However, the New Agers tell us this is a necessary event to "cleanse" the planet of undesirable elements to prepare for the "Golden Age" at the end of the "yellow brick road". Johanna Michaelson, in her book, Like Lambs to the Slaughter, relates the following prophecy of New Ager, John Randolph Price:
As if this plot were not thick enough already, the same predictions are coming from those who channel not only the "ascended masters", but also from those who have been in contact with or have been abducted by the occupants of UFOs. The web site of the Theosophical Society gives details of an alien entity named Ashtar. In their own words, this is a description of the "Ashtar Command":
This description reveals the true identity of the Ashtar Command. These are the Bene ha Elohim of the Old Testament, fallen angels. The message is occult to the core, even to the point of identifying themselves with the numeric code of 666. This description coincides with many of the automatic writings of the well-noted occultists and theosophists such as Alice Bailey or H.P. Blavatsky.
Thelma Terrell, author of the book, Project World Evacuation, supposedly channels the ET, Ashtar. She relates that the coming polar shift is due to the fact that humans have abused the planet, and when the situation reaches a crisis point, those who are "out of vibration" with the planet will be removed in the "twinkling of an eye". In regard to the polar shift, she states:
New Agers, the "Occult Community", and ETs all seem to be convinced of the coming cataclysm. What does the "Christian Community" have to say about this scenario? Unfortunately, there are elements in "Christianity" that seem to agree. For example, Pope John Paul II has received revelations regarding this great catastrophe. In an interview with Malachi Martin, the National Research Institute reported the following:
These ideas even invaded "Evangelical Circles" with the prophecy of Pastor Hinkle. In 1994, Pat Robertson’s 700 Club reported the prediction of a Pastor Hinkle (I assume Pastor Hinkle is a pastor of a charismatic church –ed.). The documentation of Pastor Hinkle’s Prophecy is as follows:
The 700 Club sensationalized the story to the point of bringing in other ministers who had corresponding visions of a great cataclysm on the same date. There was much "hoopla" on the show over the course of the days preceding June 9th. When the appointed day came, the strongest earthquake ever recorded took place. There were only 2 problems: 1) The earthquake actually occurred that day only if adjusted to Greenwich time (the quake occurred below South America, where it was still June 8th). 2) The earthquake was 400 miles deep into the earth and was felt by no one. This event did not exactly "rip the evil out of this world" as prophesied, but Robertson’s spin built it up as the beginning of a series of events that would result just as Pastor Hinkle prophesied.
One must ask, "What in the cosmos is going in?" The readers of this article who have a grasp of Bible prophecy will see the similarities between the aforementioned prophecies and Bible Prophecy. What is shown with the prophecies of the New Age and Occult is the negative image of Bible Prophecy (Satan’s counterfeit). For example, the Bible predicts that the members of "the body of Christ" will be bodily caught away in the "Rapture of the Church". The New Age view is that UFOs will remove those who are "out of vibration" with the planet and are not worthy of the coming "Golden Age". The Bible teaches that Antichrist will reign in "peace and safety" for three and one half years prior to the "Great Tribulation". The New Agers and Occultists are looking for a world ruler to arise and usher in the "Golden Age" of world peace. The Bible teaches that one half of the earth’s population will die in the early plagues of the "Great Tribulation". John Randolph Price and others foretell of the massive loss of life to cleanse the planet. As a result, men will not repent of their sins (Rev.9: 20-21), as all of these things will be attributed to the "cleansing of the planet". It is very obvious that Satan and his angels are privy to more information than are we. However, when those of the New Age or Occult persuasion start to set dates for the occurrence of specific events, they should be viewed as those Christians who set dates for the Rapture of the Church. God alone transcends time. God alone knows the time schedule that He has established (Mat. 24:36).
What does the Bible reveal of Gordon-Michael Scallion’s claims of this pole shift? Is this really going to happen? Is there any historical precedent of the earth adjusting its angle of rotation in the past? What of the claims of Richard Noone that this has happened before? Let’s first address what has happened in the past.
Dr. Kent Hovind, Ph.D., is a Christian lecturer on Creation vs. Evolution. He has proposed a theory which he calls "The Hovind Theory" regarding the causes of the Flood of Noah and its related aspects. Part of the theory revolves around the question of the 6/23/77 discovery in Siberia of a 9 month-old baby mammoth perfectly frozen with undigested tropical vegetation in his stomach. (16). Dr. Hovind’s research revealed that in order for the mammoth to have UNDIGESTED vegetation in his stomach, he would have been completely frozen within one hour. To freeze an animal the size of a baby mammoth in one hour would require a freezer set at minus 300 degrees F. This presents quite a problem. How could this animal possibly have been frozen in that amount of time? Thus, Dr. Hovind’s theory states that an ice meteor struck the earth’s atmosphere about the time that Noah was loading the last animal onto the ark. Prior to the Flood, a mist that rose from the ground watered the earth, and the earth was encased in a "vapor canopy". The fact that there have been many discoveries of tropical vegetation frozen in the Arctic and Antarctic regions (as well as the tropical vegetation found in the stomach of the frozen mammoth found in Siberia) supports Dr. Hovind’s contention that the angle of the earth on its axis was a perfect 90 degrees to the sun. This provided consistent tropical conditions inside the vapor canopy worldwide. When the ice meteor struck the vapor canopy, the canopy broke down and fell as rain for 40 days and 40 nights. The meteor itself also broke up. At –300 degrees F, the laws of physics teach that ice becomes magnetic. Therefore, the breakup of the meteor resulted in massive amounts of –300 degree ice attracted to the earth’s magnetic poles (this fell as –300 degree snow, completely burying the mammoth and freezing him solid in less than one hour). With this massive additional unbalanced weight added to the poles of the earth, the earth experienced a pole shift to the current angle of rotation. This pole shift also caused the shifting of the tectonic plates which support the earth’s crust, causing the hot underground fountains of waters to erupt. These hot waters prevailed near the equator, thus keeping the entire earth from freezing (and also keeping the occupants of the ark alive). As the floodwaters receded from the earth, the polar ice began to recede as well. Our current geophysical structure was established over the next few centuries. (17) Dr. Hovind himself states, "This is just a theory", but it is a theory consistent not only with actual scientific evidence; but also with the Scriptural account of the Flood. Incidentally, it would also agree with Richard Noone’s contention of an ancient polar shift (though Noone would probably not agree with the time frame of 2400 BC).
The question still remains concerning the future. Will a sudden cataclysm totally destroy life as we know it in a few short weeks? Does the Bible reveal any hint of a polar shift in the future? Does the Bible allude to the earth changes spoken of by the occultists? Some possible insight to these questions may be found in an article posted on the web site of "Rapture Watch" (www.watch.pair.com/rapture.htm) on 5/20/98. This article quoted a scientific newsletter dated 6/19/65, revealing a study by scientists at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. These scientists contend that the earth actually has "4 s". These "s" are 4 areas of ocean, each covering several thousand square miles, in which the ocean waters are approximately 220 feet higher than if the earth were perfectly spherical. According to this article, these high spots are caused by the prevailing winds that build up friction on the ocean surface, piling up the waters. (18) The Cutting Edge has secured a copy of the original Science News Letter article and a copy of the map showing the 4 s (see below).
This is all made extremely relevant to this discussion in light of Revelation 7:1-3:
The above map (while not an exact copy of the map produced by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory) shows the approximate location of the earth’s four s. The high points on the globe are marked by the red indicator squares, and the low points are marked by the yellow indicator squares. If the prevailing winds causing this effect were suddenly eliminated, the higher waters would crash into the lower points. This scenario would certainly be especially disastrous for both the east and west coasts of the United States.
Revelation 7:1 has long been a target of those who would attack the Bible, claiming the writer of this passage believed the earth was flat. However, in light of this little-known discovery, Revelation 7:1-3 reveals a completely new perspective. This passage describes an event that occurs at approximately the mid-point of the Tribulation Period, just prior to the "Great Tribulation". By stopping the four major jet streams at these four "s" of the earth, the result would be cataclysmic. While this may or may not cause a pole shift, this would certainly cause major earth changes to the existing landmasses. Based on this information, the maps of coming earth changes may not be as far-fetched as one may initially perceive. The New Agers and Occultists could then explain these catastrophic judgements of God away as the results of the long-prophesied magnetic pole shift. However, if this is indeed the case, the "pole shift" will occur no sooner than February of 2002. Even for this date to become a possibility, the "Rapture of the Church" must occur no later than July, 1998. The formula to arrive at this date is simple: add three and one half years to the date of the "Rapture", which leads to this result. However, since no one but God knows the date of the "Rapture", any such conclusion is impossible to accurately ascertain.
Christians today have no guarantee that the Rapture of the Church will occur prior to a major natural disaster, economic collapse, or even open persecution of the Church. However, these New Age writings are too consistent with Bible prophecy to be coincidental. The "Age of Grace" certainly appears to be at its climax, but one must remember that God alone is in control of time. The events of the book of Revelation will certainly come to pass in accordance to God’s timetable. Satan’s minions surely realize their time is short, but they absolutely do not have a copy of God’s schedule.
How should Christians react to these things? We must not forget that we have in our possession the book of TRUTH, the Word of God. Christians must evaluate everything by the standard of the Bible. We also must not forget that this HOLY BOOK is not only relevant in the battle against the "wiles of the devil", but is the source of power--"the Sword of the Spirit"--by which God’s Holy Spirit communicates to His children. Thus, we pick up our "sword" and turn to II Peter 3:8-14, where we are given our "marching orders" for the very time in which we live:
The Word of God is explicit. Christians must exercise the following:
In the face of growing deception and misconception, the Bible does not change its command to those who have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. That command is the call to personal holiness. If those who "name the name of Jesus Christ" will simply follow the above listed precepts, they will not be misled by the false prophets of Satan. Christians will be seeking the truth of the Word of God, seeking the souls of those that are lost, and will be armed against the rampant deception of these "last days".
In conclusion, if you have been deceived into seeking the advice of "spirit guides" of any description (no matter how they identify themselves), please understand that you are risking your eternal destiny. Perhaps you are like Laura in the beginning of this article; you may be receiving visions from some wise and beautiful creature. Remember, Satan and his angels do not appear as the grotesque, evil entities Hollywood portrays, but they appear as "creatures of light". Ask this entity what he (or she) thinks of Jesus Christ, compare the answer to the written Word of God, and forsake this lying devil that would damn your eternal soul. Turn from the powers of Satan, and turn from yourself. Turn to the Lord Jesus Christ, put your trust in Him, and He will (as He has promised) rescue your soul from the flames of Hell. "Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." (John 6:37)

Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually. If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Pagenow.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
You can contact us by mail or email.
God bless you.
