THERE'S NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN

THERE'S NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN

In recent years many books have been written on the "New Age Movement." Which probably should have been called the "Same ol' Lie New Age Movement". Satan has no creative power and simply cannot find a new temptation for man except for the sin of pride that caused him to lose his place in God's eternal Kingdom. This New Age Movement makes for excellent writing, it sells books and causes Christians who are not aware of such activities to think that some new demonic forces have been loosed on the planet. But the fact of the matter is the New Age Movement, for all intents and purposes, is the Babylonian religion with an updated version of the lies that Satan started in the Garden with Adam and Eve, which eventually graduated to the Babylonian Tower.

ANCIENT BABYLON

The Bible tells us of the tower of the ancient city of Babylon built by King Nimrod and his queen Semiramis (Genesis 11). Semiramis was an extremely wicked woman and soon her brand of religion spread throughout the world. Their temple rituals included blood sacrifices as well as prostitution. In the Old Testament Nimrod is referred to as Baal. The basis of the Babylonian religion was the thought of man lifting himself up to Heaven, which is repeated by the cults down through the ages. Even the apostles had to face these problems with the newborn church.

GNOSTICSM

Gnosticsm reared its ugly head in Christianity around the middle of the first Century. The Gnostics believed that man could raise himself up through superior knowledge. They also believed that God was neither good nor evil, simply there. A force that created us and then left us to live on our own.

THE NEW GNOSTICS

The "new" gnostics believe we are all gods, and there is no One God, but an impersonal force. This teaching has appeared in countless movies, the biggest being the "Star Wars" triology. For years children as well as adults went around saying, "may the force be with you!" While these were thought to be harmless science fiction movies they may very well have been geared toward accepting an impersonal God. If God is an ""it,"" then it can be manipulated, controlled, and ordered about. In other words, you control god, it doesn't control you. This force must be reached through meditation, hypnosis, visualization and various other methods, much like the Far Eastern religions. They are after a one-world government, leader, economy, and religion. Again a familiar story, but the circumstances have changed.

WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY

The ability of world leaders to meet in just seconds increases the possibility of a one-world government. World leaders are calling for intellectuals, scientists, and clergy to come together to solve the world's problems. The debt of not only the United States, but other countries threatens the stability of the world economy. The key will be a soaring of the stock market prices. This will draw investors from all over the world into a literal economic whirlpool. Another, more severe stock market crash, then look for everything else to immediately fall into place. People will realize that the White House doesn't have the answers, but God's house does. We could see a revival of untold magnitude, or it may take place after the rapture, no one knows for sure.

SURVIVAL

Survival doesn't lie in fighting the New Age Movement but in exalting Jesus Christ as the Answer. Our war is not with flesh and the blood but with demon spirits (Ephesians 6:12). We can struggle against those in the New Age Movement or we can present Jesus to a lost and dying world. Which do you think would do the most good? The Bible centuries ago predicted a world government, under a man. It will take place. But there is another coming, "and the government shall be upon His shoulder... of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end,..." (Isaiah 9:6,7). Even so Lord Jesus come quickly!
