As long as I've knowingly observed the New Age Movement (since 1981), there were sub-goals in addition to their New World Order; New World Religion; and New Age "Messiah" ones.
Some of the more important subgoals were:
1. Reduce the USA;
2. End separation of Church & State (so as to promote New Age, New World Religion concepts)
3. Earth reverence and worship her as "Mother Earth", "Pachamama" and/or "Goddess Gaia".
Now in the early days that I first observed, I found small paperback volumes on the perils of a coming ice age. A few mild winters later, and it was now "global warming." After a few then colder winters, it was "climate change."
Well, I doubt if many of those watchers have bothered to dust off their Bibles, but had they done so, they might have even found some passages supporting their "global warming" theories. As there are the fewest copyright issues with the King James Version of the Bible, I will quote from it. One can find very similar language in the Catholic Douay Bibles.
But BEFORE all of this, Revelation 14 tells us all were given fair warning:
It appears that the prophecy warns that we were to fear only the God who created the heaven and earth and the sea and the fountains of waters.
There has been a great deal of speculation as to who is the Beast and what is his image. Having observed the New Age Movement as closely as I have for the past 36 years, I have become increasingly of the opinion that the "image of the Beast" is that of the "Whole Earth."
Indeed, that image was discussed as pivotal in Marilyn Ferguson's New Age coming out party volume, THE AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY. Chapter 13 (page 405) of her book is even named "The Whole Earth Conspiracy." I found 20 detailed references in the volume to "Whole Earth" concerns. The New Age contempt for the beliefs and God of our Fathers is richly reflected in her prose:
Those of us born into the "broken-earth" paradigm have two choices: We can go to our graves with the old view, like the generations of die-hard scientists who insisted there were no such things as meteorites, or germs, or brainwaves, or vitamins-or, we can consign our old beliefs unsentimentally to the past and take up the truer, stronger perspective.
We can be our own children.
The "spiritual values" to which the New Age cum "cultural creatives" cum "Mindfulness" crowd subscribe is clearly more Earth oriented than Creator based:
It is not just water conservation, nor air protection that the New Agers seek. They also aggressively put forth an "Earth Charter" accompanied by an even more more blasphemous "Ark of the Covenant". Interestingly enough, they trotted that out for public display in a Vermont ceremony only two days before the "911" events of September 11, 2001 when the World Trade Center was destroyed. Al Gore had a large Whole Earth poster behind him often shown on TV as he was interviewed in his Vice-Presidential office during the William Jefferson Clinton presidency (1993-2001).Spiritual values, indeed, are at the base of much of the ecological concern in our time, a quickening sense of the whole earth, respect for the matrix of our evolution, the nature in which we are embedded. (Ferguson, page 357)
Big money and big names are associated with the Threshold Foundation. I have mentioned this organization in earlier posts, in views of Elaine DeWar's book CLOAK OF GREEN, and histories of the powerful convergences of the New Agers as they were seeking to implement their major tri-fold agenda. You will remember that it was James George's book ASKING FOR THE EARTH was largely about the Threshold Foundation, its pioneering conferences and its work. Marilyn Ferguson said of its goals in THE AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY (p. 410)
The book of Revelation is both feared and despised by the New Age/Globalist/Deep Ecology Movement. Indeed, an important New Ager who has lyingly denied being one, "Sir" Martin Palmer an adviser of note to Britain's Prince Philip as well as his boastful claims of heading a trillion dollar environmental fund (churches' moneys, no less) spent considerable ink faulting me for that in his 1993 bookThe Threshold Foundation, based in Switzerland, stated its intent to help ease the transition into a planetary culture, "foster a paradigm shift, a new model of the universe in which art, religion, philosophy, and science converge," and promote a wider understanding that "we exist in a cosmos whose many levels of reality form a single sacred whole.
Well, even a broken clock is right twice a day. The New Agers and their "environmental movement" compatriots/comrades in arms may well be right about "global warming" coming. They are, however, dead wrong about its causes. If they want to prevent "global warming" or a "New Ice Age" as still earlier books of theirs called for, perhaps they might want to give thanks rather than blasphemies to their Maker.
