I'm happy about the Amy Coney Barrett SCOTUS nomination!

 Briefly and for the record:  While I do not agree with all of Donald Trump's actions and statements, I am absolutely DELIGHTED at his nomination of AMY CONEY BARRETT for the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).

I'm doing an interview with Jan Irvin of LogosMedia at 8 pm California time: The Qanon Cult


 Dear Friends:

Very short notice, but Jan Irvin has invited me to do a Zoomed video interview with him tonight for his podcast show,  https://logosmedia.com/,  

We will be discussing our mutual concerns about the Qanon cult that I believe has substantial identity with what I identified in my second book, A PLANNED DECEPTION, with the "Manifest Son of God", "Sonship", "Neo-Pentecostal" movement/movements that were identified by New Ager Ernest A. Ramsey, Associate Pastor of Unity on the Plaza Church in Kansas City, Missouri in 1982 when Benjamin Creme spoke at his church.  Ramsey's report which was the first report I was to read about this movement that he said was a part of what he called "An Evolutionary Basis for the Reappearance of the Christ and his Executives, the Masters of Wisdom."  Ramsey was devoted to advancing the cause of Maitreya -- not Jesus.

The discussion should be interesting.  Join us and if you miss it, he puts it up on Youtube later.

Please pray for me, my family, and my health!

Dear Friends:  

This Covid19 (novel coronavirus) crisis has brought much of our world to a crashing halt.   I have been under treatment for wet type macular eye degeneration since late 2017.  My retinal specialist told me today that my eye scans are showing progress and for that I rejoice.

However, I am fearing new health issues that may be of more severity.  I had blood tests taken in February.  I was not told of any results.  My husband asked me to stop by our doctor's office and pick something up -- I thought he meant his own recent test results for which I asked and was given.  I then asked if I could please have my own report of the February tests.  Most results were normal and unremarkable.  However, I noticed one highlighted item that was a greatly elevated eosinophil count.

I placed an inquiring account to my doctor after I googled and learned for the first time a new term, "eosinophil."  That call has not been returned.  I understand.  Our doctor like about everybody else has been more than overworked through this pandemic season.

However, recently, I have noticed my facial skin getting dryer and dryer.  Today, I noticed that in parts it was nearly bright red including portions of my upper front neck.  I did some googling to seek what that might be a possible symptom of.  To my horror, I came up with many references to it being an indication of eosinophilic disorders--some possibly serious, even fatal.

I have been more fatigued than usual lately.   I am still doing limited amounts of court work for my past clients who still seek me out for their personal emergencies.

I do not know what lies ahead, but I will confess that I am more than a little apprehensive.  My husband Barry is severely disabled and I have had some mobility issues lately.  I have outlived 3 of my younger siblings already who died of natural causes.

I do not know exactly medically is in store for me, but I will confess apprehension and possibly fright tonight.  Hopefully, it is nothing significant, as I feel still have much to do in my work in informing and warning of significant developments on the now re-burgeoning New Age/Mindfulness/Occupy Movements scene.

Please, please keep me and my family personally in your prayers.  I am praying the Lord will show me His will and give me the grace to accept what may come.

Sincerely,


CONSTANCE

A Global Reset -- I told you so and here it comes!

Click on each picture to blow page up to readability!   I've been warning since early February that I believed a "global reset" was in the works.  Indeed it is.  The World Economic Forum was a co-sponsor of Event 201 held October 18, 2019 in New York City along with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation & Johns Hopkins University!

The Revolution IS being televised!

I was quietly working at my computer tonight, trying to figure out how to use Zoom for communication.  I spent a few hours watching how to YouTube videos and reviewing some books in my library.  I finally decided it was time to call it a night and retire to bed. 

My husband called out, "Connie, have you seen this?"  I thought perhaps he was watching a movie or had made a YouTube music video find.  There on the screen was obviously what appears to be a full blown revolution in progress.  It was progressing exactly as the New Age books and publications had described it might when I discovered that Movement back in 1981. 

Isobel Blackthorn, to my amusement, suggested in her books on the life of Alice Ann Bailey that I had slowed the "progress" of Alice Bailey's dreams by nearly 40 years.  Be that as it may, it appears to me that it IS happening and it IS HAPPENING NOW!

Chris Cuomo on CNN just announced the Supreme Court had just released a decision against the California church challenging the right to gather restrictions under the guise of the Pandemic emergency orders.  According to Cuomo, the United States Supreme Court had ruled 5 to 4 with Justice Roberts siding with the liberal judges on the bench that there was not an unfettered right to worship -- to believe, yes, but to worship, no.

As Jesus warned his disciples, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is night:  so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these tings, know that is near, even at the doors.  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."  (Matthew 24: 32-35, KJV)

Scoffers over the years have claimed that Jesus told his own generation they would not pass until all was fulfilled.   Clearly, the context of Jesus' remarks in that same context indicated that these were things that would take place over a long period of time.  He was instructing that the generation alive when these things began to happen would not pass until all was fulfilled.  There would be world wars, earthquakes, false christs and messiahs arising deceiving many.  Further, Jesus said (Matthew 24:6:  And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars:  see that ye be not troubled:  for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:  and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers[e] places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows."

It appears to me that the prophesied times are here.  I am fearful for those who thought they would be raptured out before they came -- that they would be in heaven in 3 1/2 years before the antichrist was revealed.  Clearly, such a teaching contradicts Scripture.  Read 2 Thessalonians very carefully.  The gathering together to our Lord would not occur until after the Man of Perdition was revealed.

May the Lord strengthen our faith and our resolve to "keep on keeping on."  We must trust God now matter how it comes down.  He's got the big picture, we've got the little one. 

Stay faithful and stay tuned!

A coronavirus (Covid 19) global reset appears to be in the winds!

Update:  I will be doing live radio interviews with Mark Spaulding on WLQV 1500 AM and 97.2 FM.  Via internet, you can listen live from https://faithtalkdetroit.com/personality/4630 and/or going to the program's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/mark.spaulding.587Call ins are, as I understand, invited.




I will admit to deep suspicions over the chain of events the past few weeks, starting on December 31, 2019  when the Wuhan corona-virus was generally announced.  When only a few short weeks later a total change in our lives transpired virtually overnight, I personally felt it was rolling out far too fast and efficiently to be exactly as proclaimed.  The New Agers I have analyzed and reported on starting in 1981 had a slogan they still use:  Crisis = Opportunity.  Whether this was a manufactured crisis or not, it certainly represented one awesome opportunity to those wishing to usher in world government and/or "global governance".  "Global Governance" is a popular globalist euphemism to calm the fears of those rightfully fearing totalitarian world government.

A little of my googling tonight!


Starting in early February, I started started telephonically sharing my concerns with others that what was probably about to transpire was a "global reset."  I, thereafter, googled "coronavirus" with "global reset" and immediately came up with several analyses proposing just that from varied sources.

Javier Solana, whom I have analyzed and reported upon for nearly 25 full years (starting November 22, 1995), was reported ill and hospitalized with coronavirus.  As he has often been proclaimed one of the world's greatest leader in global governance, I noted in his from hospital tweets that he regretted the necessary structures for global governance had not been put in place before the Covid19 crisis.  Late last week, he authored an article, "Our Finest Hour", jointly published by Project Syndicate and the World Economic Forum.  Therein he wrote of his admiration for Sir Winston Churchill and that this crisis, like Churchill's leadership in World II could be our own finest hour.  Not too alarming, so far, except when he went into a discussion about it being imperative that we not return to our old structures.  Even more alarming, he called for a mobilizing of leadership and an italicized "demobilisation" of the masses!

The conservative Forbes Foundation published an article about the "Great Coronavirus Reset" and it also is calling for a global governance reshaping.

Will it happen?  My educated guess is that it most likely will -- and soon.  Names calling for world government in recent days now include  Mikhail GorbachevGordon Brown (ex Prime Minister of Great Britain and the leader in 2008 G20 financial restructuring).

Am I suspicions about the origins of this crisis?  Yes!  On October 18, 2019, a tabletop global exercise "Event 201" was held in New York City.  It was co-sponsored by the World Economic Forum, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Johns Hopkins University.  The scenarios portrayed at that event were very similar to what has since transpired.  That event featured elaborate slides and videos on GNN (a play on CNN) of a global pandemic originating with a coronavirus jumping from Brazilian pigs to humans and thereafter circulating globally, crashing the travel industry, banks, and the general economy in the process.  There were protracted discussions of a possible need to shut down the internet to prevent "misinformation and disinformation."

Less than a month earlier, September 20, 2910 the BiometricUpdate.com published re the  ID2020 Alliance  a blatantly bold article on combining universal digital identity with vaccination.  On March 26, 2020, they added what I term a "cover your posterior" addendum to the article saying it was not about tracking as "conspiracy theorists" were allegedly claiming.  To quote Shakespeare, "methinks the lady doth protest too much."

https://www.biometricupdate.com/201909/id2020-and-partners-launch-program-to-provide-digital-id-with-vaccines
Last Friday night, as I, like about everybody else was a virtual prisoner in my home, with any outsider there constituting an "illegal gathering, heard CNN commentator Cooper Anderson interviewing an Emily Baumgaetner, a medical reporter for the Los Angeles Times.  I sat up and listened extremely carefully.  She was speaking of an anti-pandemic program allegedly shut down by President Trump.  She said that Trump had not shut down the program, but had made a decision not to re-fund the program.  The program had consisted of Chinese scientists and Americans working from a facility in China (I believe she said Wuhan, China, but I don't have a transcript).  They were studying transmission of viruses from animals to humans -- several hundred varieties of viral agents.

Hmmm!  Well, I'm probably reading too much in that, but my suspicions that this may have been a planned event definitely linger.  Trillion dollar plus bailout packages are definitely not sustainable.  I don't want to catch the disease, so I will take my precautions, but I do believe we have entered a very dangerous phase of human history that will very well the deepest of prophetic significance.

I value your thoughts and your prayers.  Stay tuned!

TWO CREEPY CONCEPTS: "Accelerationism" and "Uberveillance"

As much as I have learned about the New Age Movement over the past nearly 40 years complained of by pro-Alice Bailey writer, Isobel Blackthorn, there is always more to learn.  What I have learned these past few days has given me great cause.  They are two dangerous concepts of "Accelerationism" and "Uberveillance."  The concepts are related.  They are also a vital part of the New Age Movement end goals -- taken to extremes.

"Accelerationism" started with academia and since 2013 has spread rapidly into both extreme left and right wing fringers.  When I discovered the New Age Movement's existence in 1981, there were many discussions in New Age circles of "Punctuated Equilibrium."

This was also a belief held by Hitler -- that his violence would accelerate a "new man."  Quoting from back cover of the 1974 MacMillan Press first American edition of THE OCCULT AND THE THIRD REICH (1971 Jean-Michele Angebert)

As Hitler himself said, thirty years ago, "he who has seen in National Socialism only a political movement, has seen nothing." The authors of The Occult and the Third Reich have analyzed this statement and find that "Nazism is only the most recent outcropping of a militant neoPnganism locked in a death struggle with its arch enemy, traditional Christianity, a struggle which will go on to the end of time." A member of the occult Thule Group, Hitler sought to justify his theory of the "supreme race" by acquiring the integral knowledge of good and evil. . . .
This knowledge, hidden in the past, contained the secret of the genesis of the world and, as Hitler believed, the justification for Nazi political theory.


 "Accelerationism" and its accelerationist actors crosses the bridge of the "radical center" claimed by New Age theoreticians from far left to far right.  It embodies the chaos theories of the New Agers.  It's proponents boast about the profusio of New Age spiritualities enabling it.  It ranges from virulent anti-Semites again seeking the same "final solution" as Adolf Hitler.  It embodies the chaos theories claimed by New Age practitioners over the years needed to break through to "punctuated equilibrium."

F

As a recent VOX news article said about the Movement:

It’s called “accelerationism,” and it rests on the idea that Western governments are irreparably corrupt. As a result, the best thing white supremacists can do is accelerate their demise by sowing chaos and creating political tension. Accelerationist ideas have been cited in mass shooters’ manifestos — explicitly, in the case of the New Zealand killer — and are frequently referenced in white supremacist web forums and chat rooms.
Accelerationists reject any effort to seize political power through the ballot box, dismissing the alt-right’s attempts to engage in mass politics as pointless. If one votes, one should vote for the most extreme candidate, left or right, to intensify points of political and social conflict within Western societies. Their preferred tactic for heightening these contradictions, however, is not voting, but violence — attacking racial minorities and Jews as a way of bringing us closer to a race war, and using firearms to spark divisive fights over gun control. The ultimate goal is to collapse the government itself; they hope for a white-dominated future after that.
Accelerationism has bizarre roots in academia. But as strange as the racist movement’s intellectual history may be, experts believe it has played a significant and under-appreciated role in the current wave of extremist violence.
“It’s not an ideology that exists in a theoretical sense,” says Joanna Mendelson, a senior investigative researcher at the Anti-Defamation League. “It’s an ideology that has actually manifested in real-world violence.”

Accelerationists also find use in those "transformed" by New Age spiritualities,  A recent article found at the Nowhere.News website has an extensive discussion of that aspect of the Accelerationism Movement.

The Accelerationists are often long on memos.  Norway's Bredvik killer, New Zealand's Mosque shooter left long memorandums of why they were committing their violence to help bring in the "new man" and the "new society."  Here is a lengthy online memorandum of what Accelerationists believe.
That will give you a great deal to swallow and digest.

Next, UBERVEILLANCE:

Pictured above is the Uberveillance logo designed in 2010 to illustrate that movement.  Uberveillance was a term said to be coined by MG Michael in 2006.  Uberveillance includes human microchip implants and that will be the topic of my next blog post.

Thank you for your patience!  I turn 19 on Saturday.  I'm a Leap Year Baby and get one birthday every four years whether I need it or not!

Stay tuned!

Brief Update -- and Coming soon, a Polish language edition of Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow

Dear Friends:

I am still struggling both with my eyes and painful arthritis.  My physician has now prescribed a once a day fairly inexpensive pill that I have now taken for the first two days with significant relief.  I'm hoping that continues.  But there are encouraging fronts, nonetheless.

A Polish publisher contacted me via telephone directly from Poland.  He had been trying to reach me for some time.   He said he wanted to have HIDDEN DANGERS OF THE RAINBOW translated into the Polish language for circulation there and in Polish speaking regions.  I happily gave my consent.  He is sending the proposed contract that I will review and sign.  Additionally, I have volunteered to him that I would add an updating foreword as well as an end chapter with updates.  I could use that supplemental material to update Hidden Dangers' other editions (English, Dutch, Norwegian, and German).  He tells me it will take approximately six months to translate and produce.

Well, I suspect this will not make Isobel Blackthorn (author of THE UNLIKELY OCCULTIST - ALICE ANN BAILEY) happy.  It probably will not delight the Fetzer Institute either.  Their strategy is to publish the worst of the New Age and then label it as good, right, and true.  The New Age Movement is very much out there and in public view as "Meditation", "Mindfulness", and a host of new leaders and shamans.   A daughter of the King of Norway is living in the United States and is dating a New Age shaman leader.  The New Age Movement is far from dead.  The Fetzer Institute claims that they will now succeed whereas they failed in 1982 because now a majority are SBNR (Spiritual but not religious).  

I have heard recently from New Agers exiting the New Age Movement and now seeking information to help their still involved friends.  I've had some wonderful telephone conversations with some.  Steve Bancarz is doing an excellent job of reaching out to New Agers with his own conversion account.  I'm greatly encouraged by his work and by the work of another very prominent former New Ager, Doreen Virtue.  There is a great deal of discussion about Kanye West and his very public profession of his belief and faith in Jesus.  Steve Bancarz believes this is a tremendous victory for God's Kingdom.  I am inclined to believe in Steve's analysis.  Some watchers feel and have stated otherwise; however, it is my belief that those exiting the New Age Movement and other similar circles have had their heads played with for a long time and there is often far from theological perfection while the Holy Spirit is doing His work.  There is a song sung by children, "God's still working on me."  Me, too!

I hope to post more frequently from now on.  Please pray that God strengthens me.

Sincerely,

CONSTANCE

Merry Christmas! Significant 2019 events

It's hard to believe that Christmas is almost here again -- it may be the age that I've attained makes time's passage seem more rapid, but it feels to me a little like "it can't be Christmas -- we just had Christmas", referring to last year's holidays.

It's been a different and maybe tumultuous year for me.  My husband had a fall and was hospitalized in May 2019.  While he was in the hospital, I had a fall and was taken to an emergency room at a different hospital.  Needless to say, both our doctors have cautioned us about the dangers of future falls.  I had eye issues, some of which have been ongoing for the past two years -- wet type macular degeneration for which I have had shots in the eyes during that period, the last being last Friday.  I had surgery for cataract removals on October 17th and October 31st.  The vision issues slowed down my writing contributions, but I have kept very current on research. 

We lost our long time research contributor Dorothy Margraf earlier this year.  Our "Rich of Medford" (Richard Peterson) just lost his father this weekend. ''

The New Agers have lost people as well.  Barbara Marx Hubbard and Ram Dass (Richard Alpert) are two major names now gone.  Ram Dass' death received heavy coverage in today's New York Times. 

I discovered in 2018 that I had received some unexpected publicity.  One United Kingdom internet source published an article "Plutarchy in the UK."  Therein, I received the surprising discovery that I was credited as being one of the sources of "conspiracy theories" that fueled Brexit.  It linked my name to an allegedly "Fascist" researcher that up till then, I was unaware of --  one Paul Joseph Watson.  The same source also claimed I had "coined the word 'Prison Planet' in my 1983 book, HIDDEN DANGERS OF THE RAINBOW.  Obviously the author of the Plutarchy article must not have read my book.  I did not use that phrase nor had I seen it used anywhere until I saw numerous Alex Jones articles.  I always assumed Alex Jones must have coined that word.

If there was any word I did personally coin, it was probably "New Ager."

Then, if that was not enough, I discovered that I was the villain of a historical novel by an Australian writer on the life of Alice Ann Bailey.  That book was "The Unlikely Occultist -- Alice Ann Bailey" and the author was one Isobel Blackthorn.  However, I forgave all when she wrote that my work was "foundational" and that basically I had slowed the New Age down for nearly 40 years!   One needs a sense of humor to survive!

The Vatican under the leadership of Pope Francis obviously tilted the former anti-New Age stance taken 1993 and thereafter by Pope John Paul II to one of pro-New Age, pro New World Order.  The syncretism that Pope Benedict XVI opposed became defined by Pope Francis as God intended.   Encouragingly, resistance developed.  One brave soul tossed the Pachamama idols in to the Tiber River.  A brave Catholic Bishop Schneider took a strong stand against the apostasy introduced by the Pope into a Vatican mass.  I suspect he is rather out of favor with the Vatican's present administration these days, but conservative Catholics love him.

The LGBTQ Movement became much more militant and "in your face."  All those subscribing to plain biblical readings on the subject are suddenly labeled as "hate-speechers".

Beyond LGBTQ, suddenly "gender assignment" wherein one suddenly renounce the gender with which he/she was born, announce a change and everybody is expected to bless is now heavily among us.

In short, in 2019, up became down, good became evil, evil became good, and the times -- they are looking to me as pre-Noahic, pre Sodom & Gomorrah, and the events that Jesus himself warned us would come before his return. 

Yes, the times are serious.  I suspect they are going to be much more so in 2020.  2020 still sounds like "science fiction" to me.  But then again, so does 1984.  No man knows the day nor the hour that our Lord will return, but when he returns, will he find us ready?

That is my Christmas prayer -- that we be ready!

 Stay tuned!

What's been happening? Everything! I helped cause Brexit, "demonized Alice Bailey"?

Vision has been a serious issue with me lately.  For the duration I have given up all night driving.  Reading and even TV viewing were serious.  I had issues both with wet macular degeneration for which I have been receiving shots in the eyes for the past two years.  My retinal specialist approved cataract surgeries for which I had two in the past month, the last a week ago this morning.  That has slowed my writings and commentaries.  The cataract surgeries have helped and now one eye is fixed up with a contact implant for distance and the other for reading.  I'm seeing better right now than I have in a long time, but I'm still "not out of the woods" on the macular degeneration.  Pray for my eyes.  As God told Moses, "who made the mouth, I will be with thy mouth."  Moses still was not adequately reassured, so God told him, "very well, take Aaron as your spokesman."

Well, God made the eyes.  I'm praying he will stay with mine.

There have been so many critical developments on so many fronts, it is difficult to keep up.  My dear friend, Marie Fisher, of Spokane, Washington, has been watching developments on the Amazon Synod of the Vatican and informing me on same.  Rich Peterson (our "Rich of Medford") has also been keeping me informed.  The developments have been nothing short of revolting.  Most offensive was the Pachamama controversy.  Pachamama is the South American name for "Gaia."  It is a form of both idol and Earth worship -- a false god/goddess.

Courageous Catholics have been speaking out against it including but not limited to EWTN;a Raymond Arroyo, Archbishop Schneider,  and numerous others.  But, Pope Francis, has apologized for a courageous Catholic who threw the Pachamama statute in to the Tiber River and caused the placing of Pachamama relics on the Vatican's altar.

Now, on a personal front, I made interesting discoveries vis a vis my own work over the past 38 years since 1981 -- I, Constance Cumbey,  am allegedly partially responsible for Brexit??!!  That article, "Plutarchy in the UK" also made an audaciously incorrect statement that I, in Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, coined the phrase "Prison Planet."  Well, I may wish I had, but I did not.  To the best of my present knowledge, that term was coined by Alex Jones, to whom I have had no communication.


Part of the "Plutarchy in the UK" article.


Next, I learned I was the villain of a historical novel on the life of Alice Ann Bailey.  The book was written by an Australian occultist, a former teacher, who brags that she has earned a Ph.D. on the life of Alice Ann Bailey.  I alleged demonized poor Alice Bailey by making claims that she was possessed by the spirit of the Antichrist.  Author Isobel Blackthorn obviously believes that Alice Bailey's "Christ" who is clearly not Jesus, is the real Christ and Jesus was not.  That is the biblical definition of "Antichrist" (1 John 2:22), but Isobel Blackthorn says I should be discounted because I am seeing through an "evangelical perspective."  I submit that Alice Bailey, in making a decision to link with Theosophists and their magazine Lucifer, in founding her own publishing enterprise as "Lucifer Publishing Company," and in energetically writing about "The Reappearance of the Christ" (her 1947 book) did an excellent job without my help of demonizing herself.


Well, I've got broad shoulders.  Maybe I should be complimented by the fact that disapproving Isobel Blackthorn complains that my work has lasted for nearly 40 years, has a strong internet presence, and "is foundational."

Well, I've better follow my doctors' admonition not to overstrain my eyes, so I'll sign out for now.

Stay tuned!

In Memoriam: Dorothy Margraf - New Age Researcher, par excellence

This morning I was awakened by a call from Richard Peterson (our "Rich of Medford") with the very sad message that my long time friend and research associate, Dorothy Margraf had died.  Those of you who have followed this blogspot for a long time know that Dorothy was active here as well as maintaining a very informational Facebook page.  You probably know that with Dorothy and I both being very human, we sometimes had our differences.  Nevertheless, Dorothy's contributions to the body of knowledge on the ramifications of the New Age Movement were significant and solid.  Dorothy was a gifted researcher and writer.  She did much to alert the Jewish community to the now not so hidden dangers of the New Age Movement.

She leaves her sons Victor and Mike behind.  My condolences to them and they should justifiably celebrate the life of their mother.  She was a great lady!

With sadness for her departure,

Of John E. Fetzer, the Fetzer Foundation, Fetzer Institute, and its vision for our collective future

When I discovered the existence of the New Age Movement, strangely, the lady I extracted the phrase "New Age Movement" from (Phyllis Warren) did speak to me of events taking place in my home town of Fort Wayne, Indiana.  One year later, on March 10, 1982, the day of the New Agers' long awaited "Syzygy". I read in a Detroit Free Press article of a John Davis giving a talk that same day on "the three stages of the Christ's Reappearance."  It was in 1988 that Marilyn Ferguson went out of her way to make an unexpected telephone call to me that she was attending a large world-level event in Kalamazoo, Michigan, held by a "Fetzer Foundation."   Newspaper articles I then read contemporaneous with that event told of many notables in attendance including the widow of assassinated Egyptian Prime Minister Anwar Sadat, Robert Muller of UNESCO, Laurence Rockefeller, and many others.

What I did not know until the past seven months, starting on December 30, 2018, the day the Detroit Free Press ran a full two and a half page story on former Detroit Tiger owner John E. Fetzer was that a very major center of New Age activity had been centered not so much in California or London, but in Kalamazoo, Michigan -- 125 miles from me as the crow flies.

What I also did not know was that John E. Fetzer had financed much of the New Age activity I had been witnessing.  I certainly did not know then that John E. Fetzer had graduated from Emmanuel Missionary College in Berrien Springs, Michigan as the class valedictorian.  Ironically, he had given his valedictory speech on his chosen topic of "Faith of Our Fathers."  It was a faith from which he shortly after radically departed.  Ironically, it was the same faith as in which I was raised in my formative years -- the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

It appears to me, sadly, that John Fetzer tossed out his Bible and replaced it with his new chosen Bible -- first Tesla (with his fascination for technology of radio waves and beyond) and then later with such New Age sources as "The Book of Urantia" (said by some of the Fetzer Institute website sources to have possibly been written by one Kellogg (also a former Seventh Day Adventist).  Fetzer was later to put faith in The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ.  He also became a true devotee of Alice Ann Bailey and had his close associates recite her channeled "Great Invocation" at his Monday Night meetings that are detailed in Brian C. Wilson's John E. Fetzer and the Quest for the New Age as well as the numerous original sources that Brian C. Wilson used.  Those sources were obtainable and downloaded by me from the Fetzer Institute's website.

It also became obvious to me that there had to have been Evangelical "cult expert" sources who were aware of these Fetzer connections back in 1982.  They tried frantically to stop my work against the New Age Movement.  I now know, for example, that Richard Halverson, president of International Christian Leadership had his personal file on the "Institute of Noetice Sciences," furnished him by his good friends, Paul and Diane Temple.  Paul N. Temple was the co-founder and CEO of the Institute of Noetic Sciences.  During this very time, John E. Fetzer was on the Board of Directors of IONS (Institue of Noetic Sciences).

It is now my educated guess that the very sophisticated video equipment I witnessed filming Benjamin Creme's lecture in Detroit on November 4, 1981, most likely was furnished by Mr. Fetzer.  He owned a large network of radio and television stations as well as the Detroit Tigers.  The video was never circulated.   Extremely professional bright sodium lighting was employed that night.  I suspect I might have personally ruined that video for them.  At the end of the evening, everybody was to recite "The Great Invocation."  After that, Benjamin Creme was to deliver a message directly channeled through him by "Maitreya the Christ."

Benjamin Creme requested those present to gather closely together for that recitation.   A very prim and proper well-dressed black lady who looked like she could have been active and a pillar of the church in any local Baptist church sat next to me.  I said to her as gently as I could, "I hope it doesn't offend you, but I will not say the Great Invocation with you.  I will say my own prayer."  She responded, "no, Honey, that's alright."  I said, "the reason I will not say the Great Invocation is that the Bible very clearly said that the antichrist would declare that Jesus was not the Christ.   Benjamin Creme has said all evening that Jesus is not the Christ -- but Maitreya is."  The woman parroted back what Benjamin Creme had said all evening:  "there's been many Christs."  I said to her, "there's been only one and HIS NAME IS JESUS."  From a few rows around, people were looking at me as if I were from outer space."  Friends who came with me were cowering back, afraid I would be ripped limb from limb.

Benjamin Creme re-entered after that intermission and again tu rned  his head as close to a full spin of the head as I have ever witnessed.  Then he and the audience started chanting:  "From the point of light within the Mind of God, May light stream forth  . . .

Simultaneous with that, I went nice and loud (the acoustics were wonderful!) "Our Father, who art in Heaven -- Hallowed be THY NAME."  I did that every stanza as they recited it.  Finally they came to the culmination of their "Great Invocation":  "May light and love and power restore the plan on earth and may it seal the door where evil dwells (sort of New Age talk for getting rid of us monotheistic dissidents).  Again, I went nice and loud:  "MAY JESUS CHRIST RETURN TO EARTH AND END THE EVIL PRESENT IN THIS ROOM TONIGHT."

Well, the funniest thing happened, or may I say  it didn't happen.  The audience was expectantly waiting from the transmission from "Maitreya."  Benjamin Creme waited, waited, and waited.  Finally, he said to the audience, that will be all, you are dismissed."

I note for the record that if Benjamin Creme had been making things up, he could have said anything.  He was honestly waiting for whatever spirit possessing him to take over.  It appears plainly that Maitreya could not come out and play at the Unity Center for Holistic Living on November 4, 1981,

I have now learned from my extensive downloading and reading of the Fetzer archives that John E. Fetzer suffered a great disappointment when the Creme promised "Day of Declaration" of May 20, 1982, did not occur.  The worldwide newspaper ads of which I suspect Fetzer had been a primary donor ran on April 25, 1982.  On April 25, 1982, Fetzer's chosen psychic, channeler, Jim Gordon, sent John E. Fetzer a letter of congratulations.  Earlier on March 10, 1982, Gordon had told Fetzer that the new cycle, including the Bailey prophesied "cleansing action" was beginning.

Benjamin Creme concocted a story that I never believed, mainly because he did not come up with it until five days after he and I had a serious debate over local WRIF Detroit rock station, Sunday night interview.  The New Agers had the confidence that Alice Bailey books had given them that no significant opposition could develop.  It developed and suddenly they were on the run.  It is now clear to me from reading the Fetzer archives that John Fetzer was in some respects in May 1982 like the original 1844 Adventists who sat on the mountain expecting the immediate Second Coming that William Miller had told them would happen on a specific date.  It was a huge disappointment to them.  May 20, 1982 was a similar huge disappointment for John E. Fetzer.

Fetzer sold his network of radio and television stations and then the Detroit Tigers so he could follow the channeled messages from Jim Gordon and the demons possessing Gordon to establish the Fetzer Institute so the New Age Movement could continue after the 1982 disappointment.   I have also now read in those Fetzer archives that they are now confident that they will now succeed whereas in 1982 they failed -- because now a majority hold New Age beliefs.

Time and events will tell, but I think it would be good for the souls of those at the Fetzer Institute who think they are duty bound to implement John E. Fetzer's vision for the New Age to realize that perhaps if John E. Fetzer could come back and talk to them, he would now beg them to cease and desist, much as Jesus warned in the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.

My first feelings towards John E. Fetzer were of anger.  However, the more I have listened to the Fetzer archive tapes of conversations between him and Jim Gordon, I am realizing I was listening to a thoroughly hypnotized or brain-washed gullible man who was almost child-like in his belief in reincarnation, "the Ascended Masters," and a "New Gospel for the New Age."  He was, bluntly and tragically, deceived.

I would charitably tell the Fetzer friends and crew left behind:  Carolyn Dailey, Attorney Mike Gergely, Bruce Fetzer and the rest of the associates and staff is that "you don't have to go through with this.  To do so, could literally cost you your eternal soul!   The eternal consequences for those worshiping the Beast and his image were clearly spelled out in Scripture 2,000 years ago.  I submit that should have much more credibility than any "Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ" and the Alice Bailey writings.

May the Lord keep us all free from New Age temptation and deliver us from New Age evil.

Breaking News from European Union - Josep Borrell to implement Solana's CFSP Vision

This just in - July 2, 2019:  The powers that be in the European Union, after days of wrangling have elected new officials for the European Union.  The most significant one is that of Josep Borrell, a Spanish Socialist to the position of "High Representative for the Common Foreign and SECURITY Policy".  I have capitalized "Security" because that is where the burgeoning power of the now developing combined military forces of the European Union will lie.  It is proclaimed in the early news releases that he will have "Solana's testimony" (Spanish:  testigo de Solana).
Initial internet coverage of Borrell EU - PESC position.

The coverage of Borrell's appointment is that basically the true post has been empty since Javier Solana "retired".  Basically, Catherine Ashton (2010 to 2015) and Federica Mogherini (2016 to 2020) were placeholders.  I have made no secret of the fact that I consider Federica Mogherini to be a very decent, hardworking and talented lady.  It was Federica Mogherini and then Prime Minister of Italy Renzi who during her pre EU post as Foreign Minister of Italy worked so hard to secure the release of persecuted and about to be executed Miriam Ibrahim.  Ibrahim was a Somali woman sentenced to death for becoming a Christian and marrying a Christian man.

Recalling my many years of ongoing research on Solana, I recall various statements he made over the years.  While still at NATO, he told gathered European officals that "the plan was to use NATO assets with European control of those assets."

There is little love lost in the European Union these days for the United States, particularly as headed by President Donald Trump.  What comes to mind is a Revelation prophecy that may or not be applicable here, but it bears watching.   It was 10 kings who came together "for one hour" (a short period of time in Biblical terminology and handed their power to the beast.   It had been prophesied in Daniel that the 10 toes of the image King Nebuchadnezzar were "mixed iron and clay" and "would not cleave together."  The Revelation prophecy was that at some point ten kings would hand their power to one man and "thus fulfill the words of the prophecy."  He would enjoy a reign of 1260 days (3.5 years).  He would pull up three of the 10 countries by their roots.

It seems obvious to me from the context of that prophecy that these "kings"/rulers would hand their sovereignty over to one man as a power to equalize themselves with another power.  What has been expressed often in recent history is their need to equalize themselves with the USA.

If Borrell is indeed taking Solana's testimony, it appears to me very plausible that he will most likely faithfully execute same.  Solana's theme song for a long period of time is that sovereignty must be surrendered -- not just European wise, but globally in the interests of "global governance."

When Solana was first picked as High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy of Europe in 1999, he was jokingly referred to as "Senor PESC".  That was made more real when he was handed the Western European Union, a military federation of 10 nations, in November 1999.  Supposedly that was to be only for a one year period while it was being "shut down."  That year sure lasted a long time -- the WEU continued through 2010!

I believe this requires prayerful watching.

Stay tuned!   Refresh your browser frequently on this as I will be adding links as this progresses.  I felt important that you have the current news without "the perfect destroying the good."

CONSTANCE

P.S.  "Breaking news" over at EUProphecynews.com and its twitter spot.  David Wilkinson maintains that very excellent site and he reported the following.  If this is true, vis a vis, Solana, I'm even more skeptical about the "retirement."  Josep Borrell was, per Wikipedia, divorced and remarried very recently in 2018.   He indeed may not be crazy about so much required travel.
 
"BREAKING: Spain gets EU high representative. Borrell has repeatedly denied wanting the job. Too much travel. May stay on as Spain's foreign minister. If he declines, Spain's PM may call Solana. Like Borrell, he is pro-Europe old guard socialist in his 70's. Blog post forthcoming."

John E. Fetzer and Constance Cumbey - - Fighting either for or against the “New Age”:  Two former Seventh Day Adventists originally from the Fort Wayne, Indiana area – very, very different paths!



The immense ironies have not escaped me.  One of the greatest perpetrators of the New Age Movement came from the same corner of Indiana where I was born and raised, although he arrived much earlier than myself (1909 vs. 1944).  That was John E. Fetzer.   One sounding the major warnings against the New Age Movement, myself, also came from that same corner of Indiana.  John Fetzer was born in Decatur, Indiana.  I was born in very nearby Fort Wayne, Indiana.  Ironically,  for formative years of our respective lives, we were both once Seventh Day Adventists.  Out of curiosity, I searched online for mentions of our respective selves in SDA archives.  The following is from the James White Library of Andrews University, the flagship Seventh Day Adventist university located in Berrien Springs, Michigan.  Mr. Fetzer (1909-1991 and myself (1944 - present) took very, very different paths.  Ironically, I only learned of Fetzer’s Seventh Day Adventist background after reading a by now well publicized book by Brian C. Wilson, a professor of Comparative Religions at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  Kalamazoo, Michigan is where John E. Fetzer was headquartered for many years and where he built his business empire worth hundreds of millions of dollars.  Kalamazoo
is the home of the Fetzer Institute recipient of the huge fortune left by Mr. Fetzer on his death in Hawaii in 1991.   Mr. Fetzer left his immensely large fortune to propagate and propagandize the New Age Movement.




Ironically, all I knew of Fetzer until 1988, the year Marilyn Ferguson called me to brag that she was enroute to his very large New Age conference was that he (Fetzer) was a long time Detroit Tigers baseball team owner.  Marilyn Ferguson called  me with a nearly bragging, "ha ha" voice to say she was enroute there and so were many others.  This was his "Healing the Whole World" Conference John Fetzer held in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  Prominent figures from around the globe -- New Age and globalist elites were to be in attendance.  Indeed they were.  They included such New Age luinaries as Marilyn Ferguson, Maurice Strong, Robert Muller (the UN Muller, not the famous Special Prosecutor),

Marilyn Ferguson and I were rivals -- literally competing for souls.  She for the New Age Movement, myself against same.  I met her personally on a few occasions and was even in her home on 3 different occasions at her her invitation and urging .  The New Agers were anxious to check me out, but considered me a very real threat.   I know Marilyn Ferguson was a dedicated New Ager for most of her adult life.  I personally overheard her very worried mother who happened to be in her house one of the two different days I was there plead with her daughter Marilyn to go back to Jesus.  Over the years I had several encounters with Marilyn Ferguson, including but not limited to a live television debate against her on an Marilyn Ferguson and I met on several occasions.  She sent my publisher, Huntington House a threatening letter.  When that moved neither them nor myself, she next sent me a letter somewhat more conciliatory.  We had breakfast in a Windsor Ontario Restaurant in 1982.  In 1984 I was surprised to be called by her secretary and invited to come to her home in Los Angeles, California for the first New Age “World War IV” party.

I said I would let them know.  I called Bill Keith, president of Huntington House,  my publisher and told him of the sudden invitation for an event only two days away.  Richard Trosclair, his partner, called they called me back saying it was very important I be there.  They would make the arrangements for the flight.  I called a fellow researcher, Sylvia Beadleston McKevey in San Jose who agreed to fly up to Los Angeles and join us.  We both stayed with another researcher friend Betty Irwin in the Los Angeles Palos Verdes area.  On Sunday afternoon we three made our way to Marilyn Ferguson’s home at the top of Mt. Washington in L.A   The New Agers were obviously curious to look me over.  It was quite a disparate collection of backyard with name-tag attendees.  Indeed, Timothy Leary was one of those present in her backyard party.



I was at her home on two future occasions -- one was in early October 1987, right after a major earthquake in the LA area.  There I met her mother, justifiably worried about Marilyn being involved in a movement denying Jesus, and I met her husband and children along with the family parrot.  The next time I had a live encounter with Marilyn Ferguson was in the early Spring months of 1988.  An Indianapolis TV station producer called to ask me to debate her on a live television program.  Apart from that, we had many long telephone conversations from time to time over the years.  All calls were initiated and placed by her.  Motives are some times difficult to gauge, but I suspect she respected me.  I also assume she was calling to try to find out how much I knew.  Certainly, she learned that I knew plenty.  Most certainly she could never say she was not fully and politely warned.  Marilyn Ferguson could be a very likeable and personable individual.  I’ve prayed that when she died on October 8, 2008 in Banning, California at only age 70, that maybe she better late than never had accepted her worried mother’s warning -- one that I personally heard her give in October 1987.

As to John E. Fetzer, I learned from Dr. Wilson’s book that he graduated as valedictorian from Emmanuel Missionary College in Berrien Springs, Michigan.  While in attendance there he organized and ran its first radio station.  That station he later purchased and relocated it to Kalamazoo, Michigan changing it from its religious format to a more secular one.

I am suspecting that John Fetzer may have known much more about me than I did about him, most likely starting in the year 1982, the year my work detailing the hidden dangers of the New Age Movement went very public.  Now that I've delved into online historical documents of the Fetzer Institute, the John E. Fetzer Memorial Trust, and the Franklin Fetzer Fund, I'm even more convinced of that.  I'm further suspecting that John Fetzer may have been a major contributor to the travel and advertising costs of Tara Center, including funding the worldwide Newspaper ads that ran on April 25, 1982.



I faced tremendous challenges and foes in outlining the horrifying plans that New Age activists were not afraid to put in print.  They were riding high in 1982.  Between 1975 and 1982 and for many years thereafter, another personality, Benjamin Creme, an Englishman of what he claimed was Jewish and Scottish descent toured the world in style proclaiming first that a new “Christ” was coming and after July 19, 1977, he was here. 

I am now suspecting that John Fetzer was a major contributor to what had to be the enormous travel bills for Benjamin Creme and his claimed messianic cause.  I now know from books publicly placed on the market and documents available online from the Fetzer Institute of Kalamazoo, Michigan, that former Seventh Day Adventist long since turned to New Age spiritualism and beyond studied and read Creme along with his nephew, Bruce Fetzer, also from a Christian heritage.

John Fetzer was one of America’s wealthiest men.  Childless from his marriage to another Seventh Day Adventist, Rhea, he left his entire vast fortune to be used for propagating New Age beliefs and their goals of a New World Order, a New World Religion, and to secure acceptance for a new “messiah” they freely admitted was not Jesus.

The irony also has not escaped me that Fetzer also might have been a large factor in the treatment I received from those in the Evangelical community trying so hard to persuade the Christian world first that there was no New Age Movement.  When that effort failed, there were major attempts to redefine it -- denying both its obvious Luciferic and political aspects.  The effort was to tell Christians that it was not a threat to Christianity and the other monotheistic religions of the world, Jews and Moslems included.

If you have not already read my now several years old articles on the internet about “The Hijacking of Evangelicalism”, you might want to now retrieve and read them.  If you have already read them, you will want to review them.   I am about to update them with information I have gained on Fetzer’s possible role in that process -- in his close personal relationship with Paul N. Temple and Temple’s Institute of Noetic Sciences.

It is now my growing suspicion that Fetzer may have even paid a substantial portion of the cost of producing the world-wide newspaper ads ran in a half million dollar campaign.  I am also suspecting he had helped to pay Benjamin Creme's obviously heavy travel expenses.  Those ads ran in upwards of 20 major papers on April 25, 1982.  They proclaimed that their new “Christ” would be introduced to the world within two months.  They firmly believed they would do so. 

It is my belief that with the help of God, we took them and that campaign by surprise and they have been delayed for upwards of 37 ears -- between 1982 and 2019. 

It is further my belief that they are now on the march and sanctifying the New Age belief system complete with Alice Bailey (Lucifer Publishing Company, Lucis Trust) via attempting to confer public sainthood on John E. Fetzer and his “spiritual” work.

Where have the Seventh Day Adventists been on this?

I did a little digging on the internet tonight.  I also found this quote from a Kalamazoo site:

Fetzer Institute

But most of the money went to the John E. Fetzer Foundation, which he established in 1962. Called the Fetzer Institute today, it sponsors research into what Fetzer called the connections between body, mind and spirit - another interest of his from his youth. In August of 1987, Fetzer moved his foundation and its staff of nearly 30 to new headquarters overlooking Dustin Lake on West KL Avenue in Oshtemo Township. The structure is an equilateral triangle shape representing the three connections he believed in. His interest in parapsychology and spirituality began at an early age, and he claimed to have had several spiritual experiences that influenced his later life. While spending a year bedridden with complications of influenza, he made this commitment, "If I am permitted to live, I will devote my life to the spiritual work of the Creator." For the next 73 years he did. . . .[1]
Well, as I read the texts that John Fetzer and I were both raised with, he was doing mirror image opposite work to that of the Creator.  More accurately, he was following every biblically forbidden spiritual practice as well as the “Thou Shalt have no other gods before me” from the 10 Commandments.  What led him that way?  Was it an excuse to him that his mother once confessed to having visited a fortune teller?  Ironically, my own mother once confessed that to me.  There was a time in her post Seventh Day Adventist years that I was dismayed to find her with a Ouija board.  These were religious practices condemned by the Seventh Day Adventist Church.  They were also clearly condemned by Scriptures. 
Is there Seventh Day Adventist fault in these deviations from the faith?  Maybe.  I’m reading into the Fetzer experience as outlined by biographer Brian C. Wilson that Fetzer equated some of his own “spiritualism” to Ellen G. White, the prophetess of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
Maybe there was far too much emphasis in the Seventh Day Adventist Church on the writings and “visions” of Ellen G. White and too little on the plain wording of Scripture.  I am thinking that I remember little emphasis on Deuteronomy 18 that contained an explicit list of spiritual practices forbidden to the Israelites as they entered the land that the Lord took from others for pursuing those practices.  Here is the express language taken from the King James version of the bible.  It reads just about the same way in every other version:
When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord : and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.
For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners : but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
The Seventh Day Adventists also, following the teachings of Ellen G. White, characterized many of the Gnostics as the true Christians -- the “true church” that went underground for a period of 1,260 years.  I heard this teaching many, many times during my youthful years in the Fort Wayne, Indiana Seventh Day Adventist Church.  Thankfully, we also sang “give me the Bible, holy message shining.”  Fortunately for me, that part stuck.  There were others, like David Koresh, John Fetzer, and others now deeply ensconced in the occult who interpreted things very differently or in the characterizing the Roman Catholic Church as the Beast of Revelation, missed other scriptural indicators of what the real beast would eventually bring forth -- as foretold in Revelation Chapter 9, the rise of the occult.  Another sad indicator of that was a site for a former Seventh Day Adventist I found on the internet.  She had formed her own church devoted to radical feminism, goddess(es) and all.  She calls herself “Katia” and is now openly into all forms of the occult, radical feminism, Eckart Tolle.  Here is something she wrote:
I went to Seventh Day Adventist schools and boarding schools during all my childhood and teen years. They teach a love for the Cathars big time. Our elementary school teachers made us read stories and color pictures of Waldensian and Albigensian children walking perilous mountain cliffs, hiding from the Inquisition on pain of death, carefully writing out copies of the Bible.
I left the Adventist church as a young adult because they don’t acknowledge the Divine Feminine, but I still have a friendly attitude toward some of their doctrine. I have been studying the Gnostic Cathars more in depth than usual lately and found some old notes I made last year. I realized the Adventists have a lot in common with the Cathars — who were called Waldensians and Albigensians in their day, only the Roman Catholic Church called them Cathars, originally a derogatory term meaning “purists” or “pure ones.”
Here is what I jotted down last year when I realized the uncanny similarity between the SDA’s and Cathars / Waldensians / Albigensians. The SDA founder, Ellen G. White, visited the Cathar / Waldensian valleys area in Europe (Italy and France border area) twice in 1885 to 1887 while she was in Europe. Chapter 4 of her famous book, The Great Controversy, is about these cool heretics. Adventists really really honor heretics!, good for them.[2]
Here’s what she is doing today, per her blogspot/website:

White’s own comments in my copy of “The Great Controversy” and did note that she had indicated that those fleeing had been subject to some degree to pagan influences.
