THE CUTTING EDGE

In last week's article on Art Bell, we discovered that he is propagating the belief that events in this country and the world seem to be accelerating toward a point where some *great* change is going to occur that will radically alter life as we know it today. Last week, I remarked that Bell's observations seem so like what the Bible foretells the world will be like before the appearance of the Antichrist {New Age Christ}, I wondered aloud if Art Bell weren't a Fundamental, Bible believing Christian? We shared with you some of the Bible prophecies which predict precisely the type of observations Bell has made. Now, notice Bell's words, "accelerating toward a point where some *great* change is going to occur that will radically alter life ..." That word, "accelerating" is an interesting word, referring to an object that began, either from a stationary position or at slow speed, and is building up speed, until the point is reached where a *great* change will occur. My, that sounds suspiciously like the Biblical concept of the signs of the End of the Age beginning slowly and becoming more and more pronounced, like a woman giving birth. Her birth pangs begin slowly, but steadily progress, until the baby is born.

Art Bell is correctly describing this phenomenon, but is he observing it from a Biblical point of view, from prophecy, or is he coming from another direction? To attempt to ascertain this, we need to go back to the L.A. Times article quoted last week, "Operation Desert Talk", by Robert Koehler, Los Angeles Times, Saturday, 1/13/96, Section F."

"Like a recluse on the mount, Bell observes the issues of the country and the world as a whole, equally critical of the right's militia movement and the left's abortion-rights movement. He is very Western United States in two contrary ways: Like much of the rural West, he bemoans federal government control; like many in the New Age Movement ... he is fascinated with the paranormal and the unexplained ..."

Art Bell is New Age. This is his perspective. This is his source for his belief that a "*great* change" is about to occur, a change whose signs are "accelerating". But, I can hear many people saying, New Age "guiding spirits" are not reliable when it comes to "predicting" future events. You are entirely correct. But, that is not what is occurring here, and elsewhere in the New age Movement. The "guiding spirits" are preparing their deceived adherents for the events of the Tribulation period, those events foretold in Holy Scripture so many thousands of years ago! As I read some New Age accounts as to what the earth is going to go through during the initial appearance of their Christ, I wonder whether I am reading Scripture, or New Age!!

Let us study some of these instances, and you will see what I mean, beginning with the prophesied Rapture of the Church. Based primarily upon prophecies found in 1 Corinthians 15:42-58, and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, we believe that Jesus Christ will return to the air above the earth, and will shout the command, resulting in every single true believer being instantly translated from the place on earth where he or she is at that moment in time, to Jesus' side. Unbelievers will be left behind, and will not hear Jesus' shouted command. But, they will be mightily startled when Christians to whom they are speaking will suddenly disappear!! This event will be identical to the effect of passing a powerful magnet over a shallow pan filled with iron filings and drops of aluminum. The iron filings will fly through the air, attaching to the magnet; the drops of aluminum will remain in the bottom of the pan.

Christians are divided as to the timing of this blessed return of Jesus Christ to rapture His Church. Some believe the Scripture teachings that this event will occur before the 7 year Tribulation begins; some believe it will occur at the midpoint of this 7 year Tribulation; and others believe it will occur at the very end of the Tribulation.

We believe that the Rapture of the Church will occur at the beginning of the Tribulation, based primarily upon Jesus' promise in Revelation 3:10, when Jesus said to His true believers, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." Jesus will keep us from the "hour" of the testing of the Tribulation!! To keep us from the "hour" Jesus would have to remove us from this dimension, from earth. Noah and his family had to go through the "hour" of the trial of the flood, because he was still on this planet. Terms of time, like 'hour', are terms limited to our planet, and its orbit around the Sun. Therefore, Jesus is promising that He will remove all true Christians before the 7 year Tribulation begins.

When does this 7 year Tribulation begin? In Daniel 9:27, God foretells that this 7 year period {Called by the Old Testament term, 'Week of Years", is 7 years} will begin when the Antichrist confirms the covenant with Israel. Once the ink is dry on this covenant, we know that Jesus Christ will return at Armageddon, exactly 7 Jewish years later, to the day {Jewish year is 360 days long}. The Bible is silent as to whether the true Christians will actually see the appearance of Antichrist.

Now, back to the New Age Movement. As I stated earlier, ,most practitioners of the New Age Religion, and certainly, all the leaders, receive their "Guiding Spirit" soon after they begin their meditations. These "Guiding Spirits" identify themselves as benevolent spirits, usually of some person who have gone on before, who have gone through many reincarnations, and have now appeared to help guide the adherent into a higher state of consciousness. Many people can have more than one such 'Guiding Spirit'. While New Age adherents view these 'Guiding Spirits' in a most positive manner, the Bible calls this demonic possession!! An excellent resource for understanding this phenomenon is a book by Johanna Michaelson, "The Beautiful Side Of Evil". Johanna was thoroughly involved in "Psychic Healing", believing she was doing the will of God. However, God showed her that she had been deceived, that these "benevolent" Guiding Spirits were demons. And, He delivered her from this bondage. Do not be deceived; "Guiding Spirits" are demonic, no matter how benevolent they may seem.

Now, back to the Biblically prophesied Rapture of the Church. Beginning in late 1987, in a New Age conference in Aspen, Colorado, the New Age speaker giving the seminar suddenly began telling the participants that his 'Guiding Spirits' had given him new insight, and had told him to pass it along. He said that, when The Christ appears, amidst his many signs and wonders, there will be many people who will not, and never could, support him and his global program. Therefore, the 'Masters of the Logos' had decided to remove these recalcitrants from this earthly dimension, so that their collective negative aura would be removed. In this way, The Christ would not have to deal with this tremendous amount of negativity in the world. You see, the New Age Religion teaches that each person unknowingly exude an "aura", which the normal person cannot see. This aura is considered positive if the person believes in the New Age, but negative if they do not so believe. And, if a person is a follower of the Old Age Religion of Fundamental Christianity, then that person exhibits a special amount of negative energy. When multiplied by tens of millions of people, this negative energy can impede the Work of the Christ in attempting to move the peoples of the world to a new, higher level of consciousness! This is the belief behind all of the "Harmonic Convergences" which have been held annually for about 7 or 8 years now; they literally believe that, if all the New Age adherents in the world focused their collective wills to moving the world toward the goal of staging the Christ, then all the "negative" energies exhibited by us Fundamental, Bible-believing Christians would be overcome.

But, the problem remains; there are simply too many Fundamental Christians in the world, exhibiting too much "negative" force that inhibits the appearance of the Christ. Isn't it interesting that the New Age Christ is not omipotent, that he cannot come unless those "negative" people are first removed?

Therefore, the 'Masters of the Logos' has decided that, shortly after the Christ appears, they will simultaneously snap these "negative" people into another dimension, where their souls can be retrained in the merits of the New Age, so that when they return in the reincarnation cycle, they will fully support the New World Order!! How long do occultists believe this reincarnation cycle is? They think it is 216 years<1>, because this is the number achieved when you multiply 6x6x6!

Therefore, the 'Guiding Spirits' of this seminar speaker wanted people to know that, soon after The Christ appears, millions of people will suddenly disappear!! This, my friends, is the Rapture of the Church!! This event will be so shocking that some explanation must be given to New Age adherents, so they will not believe the Biblical Truth, thus turning to Jesus Christ for salvation!!

On August 18, 1991, I personally received confirmation of this story. A radio listener called me one day to introduce himself and offer his services in my quest for deeper truth and understanding about the New Age Movement and their Plan to stage the Christ. This listener had been deeply into the Occult, being a member of the World Wide Church of Christ, and associated with the House of Theosophy. As I stated in earlier articles, the House of Theosophy is particularly nasty and influential in this New World Order Plan. In Europe, between World Wars I and II, most of the leadership of Adolf Hitler sat in conference after conference, learning about the Secret Doctrine, an insidious teaching which helped Hitler justify his genocide of the Jews.

This radio listener explained that he had just received notification that the New England Director of the House of Theosophy, Bill Lambert, was holding a lecture entitled, "POSSIBLE AND PROBABLE EVENTS IN THE FUTURE". This meeting was planned for the Boston office, and if I never let on that I was a born again Christian, I would be let in without any questions asked.

During this seminar, Lambert warned us again of this sudden disappearance of millions of people simultaneously from the earth, after The Christ appeared. And, Lambert said that this was a relatively new revelation from the 'Guiding Spirits'! However, Lambert used a different symbology: "Bill then explained the fate of those members of Group #3, those whose personal consciousness was not now, nor could ever be, raised sufficiently to accept the Christ. Bill likened them to a person who had spent his entire life in a totally darkened room. If a sudden, intense light were to shine into this room, the person's eyes would not be able to endure the light. The person would try to flee the light and go into another room which was dark. Similarly, persons of Group #3 will "elect to leave for another room".<2>

At this point, I raised my hand and asked, "How do these people do this, Bill? No one can simply declare his spirit to leave this world. Do these people commit suicide? Bill answered emphatically, "NO". He said, "I do not know how it will happen, but these people will leave this dimension."

Up until this point, I had believed that the Rapture of the Church would occur in the midpoint of the Tribulation; but, now, I realized the supernatural demons of the New Age Movement were telling their adherents to expect the Rapture shortly after the Christ appears. This puts the timing at the beginning of the Tribulation, just before The Christ confirms Israel's Covenant. Of course, there are some Christians who will immediately object that the Bible teaches that the Church will never actually see the Antichrist. If this is your position, please e-mail me the exact verse that you believe teaches this.

New Age teachings parallel Scripture in other ways as well. For example, Scripture, especially in the book of Revelation, speaks of unprecedented natural disasters, which are presented as God's Divine Judgments on an unrepentant world. One of the most incredible things God says in the book of Revelation, is in 9:20-21, "And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts."

This is incredible!! The world has just lost approximately 50% of its population by God's hand; yet, they still do not repent of their evil deeds, and turn to the living God for Salvation!! I have never been able to understand this. But, as I read New Age literature on the subject of what their 'Guiding Spirits' are telling them about the first seven years of the reign of The Christ, I understood why they do not repent, even in the face of God's unprecedented wrath!

They have been taught beforehand that such disasters were going to fall, and they are deceived as to why they are befalling the earth, and who is responsible for it! Remember our discussion about the Rapture of the Church, above, where I showed you that the New Age leaders' 'Guiding Spirits' were warning that the Rapture was going to occur, without applying that name to it. They also lied to their adherents by telling them that the Force behind this sudden, simultaneous disappearance of tens of millions of people was the Masters of the Logos -- not the God of the Bible. So, when the Rapture occurs, New Age adherents will be deceived. They will not recognize it as the Scriptural Rapture; rather, they will simply believe that the 'Guiding Spirits' were correct in their 'prophecies', and they will believe in them even more!

New Age guru, Ruth Montgomery, has written many books on the subject of the transition between the Old and the New World Orders. And, she cheerfully admits that her revelations come from her 'Guiding Spirits', i.e., demonic possession. In her book, "Herald of the New Age", on page 190, she admits that her writing is "automatic writing", which is defined by the New Age Dictionary as, "writing produced when a person goes into an altered state and a spirit entity takes over the person's writing arm and hand to communicate." This is a poor counterfeit for the way God's Holy Spirit "overshadowed" men of old to write inerrant Scripture. It is one thing for a person to be possessed by the Holy Spirit, and quite another to be demonically possessed.

As you read Montgomery's accounts of the natural disasters the earth "must" suffer as it is "cleansed" in the first years of the reign of The Christ, compare her accounts with those in Revelation 6-19; you will say, as did I, "Is this real, or is it Memorex? Am I reading the book of Revelation or of Ruth Montgomery?"

"... the Guides completed their account of The World Before by opening a door to future events, and many of these predictions of twelve years ago have already come to pass; yet, the most ominous warning they issued concerned the entire planet. A shift of the earth on its axis will occur near the end of this century, they insisted ... it will, nevertheless, cause widespread 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 ... 'Those who fear death should put it firmly from their minds', they advised, 'as this planetary cleansing is inevitable and our spirits are eternal'."<3>

Thus, Montgomery's 'Guiding Spirits' have deceivingly prepared tens of millions of New Age adherents for the many and varied natural disasters that kill about 50% of the population during the Tribulation Period. These Judgments of God will be perceived by New Age adherents as just what the 'Guides' had warned them was coming. These people simply will not recognize the hand of God in the judgments! Truly, Jesus' warnings of unparalleled deceptions in Matthew 24:24 are true. Also, I firmly believe this deception is the fulfillment of Paul's warnings in 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12, where he says, "Therefore God sends upon them a misleading influence to evil and with all wicked delusion to make them believe what is false, in order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe in the Truth, but instead took pleasure in unrighteousness."

Some Christians have taken this warning to mean that any one who hears the Gospel before the beginning of the Great Tribulation, but refuses to be saved, cannot be saved during the Tribulation because God will send them this strong delusion. I do not believe this to be the case, simply because I see so many people being saved out of the Tribulation, in the book of Revelation. I also disbelieve this theory because God has always, and will always, have tremendous mercy upon the regular sinner.

If you examine the context of these verses, backing up to Verses 1-9, you will see that God is speaking of the Kingdom of the Antichrist generally, and those individuals who have willingly given themselves over to him, by worshipping his religious New Age system. Think of this evil system, and what it entails to the individual worshipper. These people give their hearts and minds over to many practices specifically forbidden in Scripture [Demon possession, Necromancy, Astrology, Divination]. They are serving the Kingdom of Antichrist now, so when Antichrist arises, God sends upon them a strong delusion, that they might completely believe the lie. This possibility should absolutely terrify anyone who is into this New Age religion now, or who is contemplating getting into it! Jesus' words ring out strongly and true, "Come out from her [the evil religious system] ... lest you suffer her plagues ..." (Revelation 18:4)

Let us now return, in conclusion, to Ruth Montgomery's "Herald Of The New Age", as she is still talking of the coming planetary chaos, where the earth shifts upon its axis, to be 'cleansed' during the first 7 years of the reign of Antichrist.<4> "It was urgent, they [the 'Guides'] insisted, that people be warned of the approaching planetary chaos. 'They must realize that after the shift, the earth's population will be so decimated that there sill be limited opportunity for souls to return to earth life for a long time to come... People must be alerted to this fact so that they can begin now to work out their Karma while they are still in flesh.' ... it was Ruth's absolute duty to write a book about it, so that people could begin to mend their ways. 'At the time of the shift so many millions of souls will be coming over [dying] simultaneously that it will unduly tax our normal system of greeting and helping them to adjust to the fact that they are still alive but no longer in physical bodies [referring to disembodies spirits going over into the spiritual realm where they are to await their next turn at reincarnation] ... In the usual course of events there are always a number of souls here who are ready to work with each newcomer. But with so many crossing into spirit at once, unless they've meditated about this and begun to accept the words we've already written about how to prepare spiritually ... they could experience a tremendous setback in their spiritual growth."

Do you see the spiritual deception at work here? New Age adherents are being told to expect these tremendous physical disasters, and the equally unprecedented loss of life, paralleling Scripture. But, instead of understanding and believing that these disasters are fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, they have been deceived into believing this spiritual lie. But, even more, they are encouraged to really devote themselves, their minds, souls, and time, to spiritually prepare for these disasters! This gives the demonic spirits behind the New Age Movement even greater opportunity to get stronger control over their victims.

Then, Montgomery states, the lie that Satan spoke to Eve in the garden, "... in reality, there is no death, but only change." {P. 191} Then, on page 195, Montgomery states that 'inner preparation is the key to riding out the planetary shift." How true that is, but it makes an eternal difference the type of 'inner' spiritual preparation in which one is involved!! This demonic type of inner spiritual preparation will only result in that person's soul being lost eternally!!

Then, Montgomery concludes, "The Guides foresaw famine and war before the shift ... Near the time of the shift, which the Guides claim is inevitable, they said the Antichrist will rise to great power ..." (P. 200) Of course, Montgomery believes she is following the "White Magic" Christ, not the "Black Magic Antichrist", but as Anton LaVey says in his book, "The Satanic Bible", they are identical!<5> The New Age Christ is the Antichrist even though none of them will believe this!!

It is also very interesting that another New Age author, Peter Lemesurier, places this planetary shift exactly in the year 2000, writing, "For in the year 2000 the spinning earth will suddenly topple and undergo a dramatic polar shift."<6>

And, as Ruth Montgomery's 'Guiding Spirits' emphatically declare, this approaching 'planetary shift' on its axis is inevitable, and is coming soon. Their predictions almost exactly parallel Biblical prophecy. New Agers are encouraged to get spiritually by increasing their meditation and by doing good deeds, to "improve their karma" before they die. As they are "getting ready", the question of the hour is, 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 this knowledge 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 are not born again, I encourage you to either E-Mail me so we can talk, or go to a Fundamental Bible-believing church in your area (we can help you find one), where someone can show you the blessed, and easy, Biblical way in which you are born again. Remember Jesus' Words, "You must be born again ..." (John 3:3-7).

If 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, then we need your support to stay on the Internet.

The sword is coming, and coming both quickly and with enormous power. But, most people, including most Christians, do not see it coming. Will you be a "Watchman On The Wall" with us? (Ezekiel 3:17-19, God's most solemn warning)

Finally, we would love to hear from you.

You can contact us by mail or email.

God bless you, and may He maintain a "Hedge of Protection" around you and your family.
