From Renaissance Era to New Age -- an internet available diagram
CHART OF INFLUENCE OF RENAISSANCE ERA INFLUENCES THROUGH MODERN NEW AGE MOVEMENT UP TO TIME OF DAVID SPANGLER AND MARILYN FERGUSON FROM WWW.ALPHAEUS.ORG
Alphaeus.org is an interesting, if not disturbing site, I found the internet today while researching Jiddhu Krishnamurti and the "World Teacher Project." Krishnamurti died in 1985 BUT the New Agers are claiming and have been since 1977 that their replacement for his work, somebody incarnating "Lord Maitreya" an "avatar for the Age of Aquarius" is somewhere out and about.
I recently re-reviewed one of the many all too costly acquired books in my library, NEW AGE RELIGION AND WESTERN CULTURE - ESOTERICISM IN THE MIRROR OF SECULAR THOUGHT. That book was a major source for Alphaeus. To be honest, the author Wouter Hanegraaff' irritated me on several levels. Wouter Hanegraaff is a Dutch scholar. It was published in the USA by State University of New York Press in 1998. He had the luxury of writing his book as part of a"subsidized research project." In his book, Hanegraaff admits his own occult sympathies in as early as the Preface. He tells us about his financial backing that
It was abundantly clear to me reading Hanegraaff's book that he had clearly read mine. I recognized much of my researched material therein. Although his bibliography was extensive, curiously, my book was lacking from the bibliography although it was apparent that (1) THE HIDDEN DANGERS OF THE RAINBOW (Cumbey, 1983) was a source; and (2) the project which employed Hanegraaff to do the research and work was more in the business of diversionary disinformation than emphasizing the real and substantial issues. The book appeared to me to be a "scholarly" exercise in confusion and minimization Curiously, although even conceding (not likely) that he had not read my book, he had claimed to read David Spangler. Ergo, he had to have known of the obvious and open Luciferianism of the New Age Movement. Virtually nothing of this appeared in the book except a peripheral reference to Sir George Trevelyan of England on tiny footnoted language on page 197 of that book.This research was supported by the Foundation for Research in the Field of Philosophy and Theology in the Netherlands, which is subsidized by the Netherlands Organization for the Advancement of Research.
The State University of New York has been the locus of much "intellectualization" of New Age theories, including but not limited to Richard Falk and Ervin Laszlo. Although the University of Michigan Bentley Historical Library has been archiving much of my paperwork since 2004, SUNY has been advocating for the New Age Movement and its structures since well before I discovered it in 1981.
Credits in Hanegraaff's book, including to Eileen Barker of the London School of Economics are also telling She long and hard worked energetically to minimize the New Age Movement in part, sanctify it in other part, and give various New Age cults clean bills of health, are telling. I will be including material in my book under progress about that!
As regards Alphaeus source, Hanegraaff, he obviously is fluent in English. Even were he not, the Holland native, he is, the Dutch edition of my book, DE VERBORGEN GEVAREN VAN DE REGENBOOG: DE NEW AGE BEWEGING EN DE KOMENDE TIJD VAN VERVAL has been published and in circulation since 1991. That, too is interesting to me, although my attitude has always been "go forth and multiply" on my work which monetarily enriched many, but never me or my family. I just looked at the Dutch copy and saw somebody was claiming a copyright on that. As the copyright was solely mine that too presents an interesting issue. Oh well! I figure rightfully that God, the only one who counts, knows who did what and when.
You may view the materials in connection with this chart-diagram at this website. Caution, the maker's sympathies are clearly neither Christian nor Jewish. Read the resources he suggests with prayerful discernment. The times are dangerous -- and tricky!
The web offered chart is interesting. In addition to Hanegraaff, the maker (website creator for Alphaeys.org) borrows from Roszak (Roszak's work and charts did precede my book), and a Richard Smoley with whom I was not familiar, but am about to be, he just having come on to my radar.
Some of you have been requesting more detailed information on the New Age Movement. This might help a bit.
"Wouter Jacobus Hanegraaff (born 1961) is full professor of History of Hermetic Philosophy and related currents at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He is also President of the European Society for the Study of Western Esotericism (ESSWE)."
many of these books are useful however because they brag. nothing much hidden.
near as I can figure out, hermeticism, even in its physical chemical form, is motivated by trying to restore the Garden of Eden without going through Jesus Christ. Many alchemical texts give lip service to God but when you look closer, His Names are used as glyphs for something else. The example, not a name but a description, that comes to my mind is INRI the anagram for Jesus Christ King of the Jews placed on the top of His Cross, is treated as each letter relates to some part of the process or something.
It is not unlike the later efforts to box God into a science of how to manipulate Him and get effects in charismatic and quasi Christian new age stuff.
Of course the strictly physical alchemy resulted in discovering a lot of strictly physical stuff. But the philosophy, which exalts a "world soul" now aka "the physical medium itself" treats this as deity, and deity that can be manipulated as an object at that. a manageable god.
the existence of an etheric underpinning of creation is possible, but it is just a creature not The Creator Who made it if it exists. Hermetic texts always treat this as a "sacred work," and essentially is a disguised gnostic religion.
It is also suspiciously similar to the laya yoga attempt to reverse the process of coming into existence, or what they see as that, which again is consistent with an idea that the physical universe is not and never was "very good."
Neighbourhood army” of 5,000 full-time, professional community organisers who will be trained with the skills they need to identify local community leaders, bring communities together, help people start their own neighbourhood groups, and give communities the help they need to take control and tackle their problems. This plan is directly based on the successful community organising movement established by Saul Alinsky (of dedication-to-Lucifer fame, ed.) in the United States and has successfully trained generations of community organisers, including President Obama.
A Big Society Bank, funded from unclaimed bank assets, which will leverage private sector investment to provide hundreds of millions of pounds of new finance for neighbourhood groups, charities, social enterprises and other non-governmental bodies.
Neighbourhood grants for the UK’s poorest areas to encourage people to come together to form neighbourhood groups and support social enterprises and charities in these poorest areas.
Transforming the civil service into a ‘civic service’ by making regular community service a key element in civil servant staff appraisals.
Launching an annual national ‘Big Society Day’ to celebrate the work of neighbourhood groups and encourage more people to take part in social action projects.
Providing new funding to support the next generation of social entrepreneurs, and helping successful social enterprises to expand and succeed.
From the Conservative (Ruling) Party website
sounds like a formula for overwork.
Excellent information about the Alinsky style community organizing ready to take place in the UK. Grid by grid communitarianism will make a very invasive "Big Society" for your area if they succeed.
I understand that graph and have realized a similar timeline.
The last days began after Christ's resurrection, but the very last days probably began in the 1500s.
By the 1500s even lands as far-flung as Japan had heard about Christianity due to the Portuguese traders. Perhaps the great commission was largely completed by the time the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock.
Then the devil reacted by giving the world Henry VIII and Luther. He perverted an increasing number of global missionary efforts, leading to the exploitation of indigenous peoples and resources.
In the late 1700s metal workers produced technology that the Romans had not accomplished - steam power. This led to the first industrial revolution.
In the 1800s the newly industrialized European countries sent missionaries and businessman to pursue "Commerce, Christianity, and Civilization" in word. This largely was the false gospel of the love of money.
Not since Roman times had globalization and trade been so complete. Even today we do not yet have the same level of globalization using some metrics as was in 1912.
Punishment was first meted out to the wealthy heirs on the Titanic, and then two years later to the European powers. WWI and then WWII dislodged the powers in the Levant.
God used the horror of the two world wars to play his last piece. The gospel had been spread to the whole world from the 1400-1500s, then a false gospel had led to global destruction.
Israel was born.
The projected return of a (false) Christ - somehow pushed back by decades.
We are in the last hours of the last days from a longue duree point of view.
I had wondered wether this might be all talk and no action by the Tories but your post is indicating otherwise.

Ruth of Exeter mentioned this chap in her post - I don't recall the name. Does anyone have a link to an overview about what his training stuff is please?

Please read this bout the secrets of the NWO by a whistle blower.
You may want to look into interviewing this woman.
Powerful source of knowledge.

You people here are a piece of work. You call yourselves Christian, call out to Jesus with passion, yet you reject his teachings. Don't you know Jesus knows how to separate the goats from the sheep? Have you missed the communtarian atmosphere of Jesus' ministry on Earth? It's only in all four Gospels and one book of Acts. You can fool people, but you can't fool God. All the warnings issued to ancient Israel and Judah are for us, too. Will you ignore them and falsely believe God is with you.
I also read some of these comments to your post which were excellent.
Fair warning. I just looked at the recommended site of a "whistle blower" which was http://americankabuki.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/the-woman-they-couldnt-kill.html#more
VIEW WITH EXTREME CAUTION. It could be a clever game of "watch the fundamentalists run". Looking at the side content, it is clearly a NEW AGE site!
A new Age of Light will dawn and the time of the sacred prophets of the Creator will again be seen. Every one of you is a potential prophet and a deliverer of Good News! You are to form a society based upon your great Light, which is to shine in glory and multifarious service to the Creator.
yeah, right! NOT !!!
I am THRILLED that people in Dutch speaking countries got the book, however, so I will reserve judgment until I know the full truth. But if profits were made, they should be shared. I feel like I planted and lots of other people ate. I look forward to the Isaiah prophecy of the coming Kingdom of God where "one shall not plant and another eat."
Could you share more on: Saul Alinsky of dedication-to-Lucifer fame --- is there a reference you can point me to?

the left right paradigm is a great deception or has become one. Things in themselves can't be pigeonholed that easily, and the left and right are both run by the same elites in the same direction.
The famous render unto Caesar statement was regarding tax that didn't even support the poor or normal government operations, but paid for the Roman soldiers presence, it was the tribute tax.
a lot of things called "socialist" really predate Marx. And things we take for granted now, interest on loans, not to mention the more complex versions, were prohibited by OT and the Church until Venetian scheming on the one hand, and Calvin on the other, got "usury" redefined as excessive interest not just any interest.
Jews were always a minor player in the stuff blamed on them. The high profile Rothschilds are an exception. (interest was allowed by OT law to be charged to nonbelievers in YHWH or non citizens of Israel.)
The idea of just price was medieval Christian. the obvious application, wage price controls, which would prevent increase of money in circulation from causing price inflation, would therefore not be "socialist."
notice I said, politically unclassifiable.
communitarianism is a good thing in theory, but it can be overapplied, and the Agenda 21 sustainable development are pushing something that seems compatible with it as a goal, seems to be applying the idea of promoting the good of the people in general and the environment, when in fact it doesn't but does often benefit some developers and definitely benefits control freaks.
(and the everyone off the land and out of suburbia and into high density housing goal would be a pandemic pathogen's paradise. which of course would fit the UN and Georgia Guidestones population reduction idea real good, that Club of Rome thing Constance posted that someone here was underwhelmed by, is the backbone to the whole thing.)
the people who started the whole anti new world order investigation scene were often themselves anti semitic (and blamed it all on the Jews) or otherwise racist (and disliked govt. inteference in racist games). Some of the writers against secret societies thought the British version of masonry was okay. That doesn't invalidate their other information, the modern anti NWO scene is pretty cleaned up of this stuff, as those with more consistently Christian agendas came on board the anti NAM and anti NWO movement. The early exposes against the Illuminati were both written by Roman Catholics. I am thinking in a time frame of 200 years or more. not early = 1950s, though you can see a lot of what I am talking about there also.
some denouncing revolution conspiracies were also anti democratic of any kind.
she certainly knows nothing about Byzantium or the Council of Nicea, which did not deal with the canon of Scripture, that already being established by traditional useage from Apostolic times. As you can see in the Ante Nicene Fathers (ante means pre not anti with an i, meaning against).

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) -- The U.S. Marine Corps, known for turning out some of the military's toughest warriors, is studying how to make its troops even tougher through meditative practices, yoga-type stretching and exercises based on mindfulness.
Marine Corps officials say they will build a curriculum that would integrate mindfulness-based techniques into their training if they see positive results from a pilot project.
Mindfulness is a Buddhist-inspired concept that emphasizes active attention on the moment to keep the mind in the present.

in this Left Behind series, someone has the mark of the beast put on him physically by force as he is held down, which is NOT what The Bible says, rather, that it is put on after one has worshipped the antichrist or his image. The alternative is death by beheading, a real quick and fairly painless way to go. Since the person in the story doesn't lose his salvation after being marked while physically held down, some could argue that since this kind of being forced, actual force, didn't cost him his salvation, and if all the witness they had was the Left Behind movies and books, then being "forced" by the threat of death wouldn't cost them their salvation if they caved in, but didn't in their hearts worship the antichrist only went through the motions. This horrible lie would be easy to extract from Left Behind, as the writer on this page says since some Bible versions mistranslate Greek for "cause" as "force."
(There is also a prophecy expert hiding out in Costa Rica who argues that one can take the mark and just suffer for this for some time but not forever, despite the fact that the smoke of their torment rises forever, therefore obviously the torment must go on forever. This guy argues that catastrophes from nibiru would fit Revelation 6 and gives some good keys for understanding some stuff, but then goes off on that punishment for taking the mark not being permanent tangent.)
Masonic occult symbols, incl. inverted pentagram, built into the Washington DC layout. I wonder if dislike of this is the real reason someone here hated cuttingedge.org, since he falsely accused them of dissing the KJV which they emphatically support, only targetting the art in the first edition, which was blamed on closet Rosicrucians.
Re the Saul Alinsky references, yes they exist. I have the book somewhere in my library which I have been revisiting and re-inventorying as of late. However, we are out of our house yesterday, today, and maybe tomorrow due to the high winds and power outages. When power is restored, I'll take a look at home. In the meantime, check out "Google Books" -- you might find the exact reference there.
"Conservatives have long joked that the national press corps see Barack Obama as the second coming of Jesus Christ. Today, Newsweek - at least what's left of it, an online product for tablets and e-readers - made it official," said Center Vice President Brent Baker
"Next to a side shot of Obama's head, the 'Inauguration 2013' cover story pronounces: 'The Second Coming.'"
They then sent me a fax back from their PR director lamely and unbelievably claiming they had not known of this edition. BUT, I will note that for a short while after that the royalty checks did uncharacteristically arrive on time.
I'm not sad, however, that there is a Dutch edition. In that I rejoice. My goal has always been to get the word out. But, I do think that if it is circulated for profit, the profits should be shared with the only one entitled to bestow the rights for commercial publication or licensing. Huntington House did have rights under our original contract to negotiate foreign publication rights, but they had no right to give away "copyright".
I would be happy to see Polish, Ukrainian, Russian editions, whatever of the book. I'm happy to negotiate publishing licenses at very reasonable terms and for those who wish to give them away and not sell for profit, they have my blessings to do that so long as there is no editing -- only a faithful translation.
In the process he came across a programme of exposing young children to very dark and depressing plays and film-making projects on the subject of suicide. There have been clusters of suicide by teenagers in several locations in the UK that are as yet unexplained. I wonder if there is anything similar going on in the US...
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins - or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”
