Progressive Satanic Revolt: From "Nothingness" to Worship of Satan
From the Herrickreport.com
Haters of God, 2 Tim. 3:2
Our war is against God and the world created by Him, declared Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto. In his poem, "The Pale Maiden" he admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:
"Thus heaven I've forfeited; I know it full well; My soul, once true to God; Is chosen for hell." (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 22)
"The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority....Socialists recognize each other by the words, "In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done....Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds." (Mikhail Bakunin, comrade of Marx, ibid, p. 27)
"We do not fight against believers (or) even clergymen....We fight against God to snatch believers from Him." (Vetchernaia Moskva, a Communist newspaper, ibid, p.77)
The Satanic revolt, like orthodox Christian faith is a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in Satan, the father of lies and envy, the author of rebellion, and the revelator of secrets.
Satanic revolt is war against the Trinity...the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, which in Bakunin's words are the "cursed and fatal principle of authority." Thus it proclaims the reign of nothingness, though a nothingness nevertheless pregnant with the expectation of fulfillment in the revelation, and finally the actual presence, of evil personified....the dark Lord of this world.
The sentiment of the revolt is Satanic pride: " which spurns subjection to any master whatever, whether of divine or human origin." (Bakunin, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 63)
The nature of the Satanic revolt is the antithesis of the Christian faith. Whereas Christian faith is joy, patience, love, truth, humbleness, perseverance, submission in all things to the Will of God, and blessed eternal life, the Satanic counterfeit is full of skepticism, lies, sophistry, revulsion, burning envy, impatience, seething hatred, jealousy, rebelliousness, blasphemy, and eternal life in Hell.
Fueled by dissatisfaction with self, the world, society, and God, it devotes its' infernal energy toward "hope and change," or as Marx put it, toward the destruction of everything that exists. The Satanic revolt intends both the destruction of the Christian-based Old Order and the establishment of something new, because: "The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed." (Karl Marx, Marx and Satan, p. 59)
In the religious order it intends to fully possess the Christian faith and refashion it completely. The Satanic revolt will not stop until every vestige of faith in God has been obliterated in every heart. Every man, woman, and child will experience a counter-conversion...a Satanic Initiation in the words of New Age insider David Spangler... to a new faith, an anti-gospel preached by anti-saints from the void. The Satanic revolt seduces in the name of fairness, equality, liberty, free love, and peace. It appeals to pride, licentiousness, and resentment and justifies itself in the name of progress, evolution, and science. But what do these terms really mean? The respected traditionalist metaphysician Rene Guenon (1886-1951) reveals the answer in his brilliant critical analysis of Theosophy and Spiritism entitled, "The Spiritist Fallacy."
Progress and Evolution
Guenon writes that in early Theosophist and spiritist (mediums/channelers) circles use of the word 'progress' or 'progressivist' preceded the use of the word 'evolution.' The roots of Theosophy, hence of evolution, stretch back to the ancient Upanishads of India and to ancient Greece, and in its modern version, progress and/or evolution describes the progress (transmigration) of soul as it inhabits in succession the bodies of different beings over the course of thousands, or even, millions and billions of years. Eventually the word evolution became preferred, especially by empirical realists and materialists like Karl Marx because it had a more 'scientific' allure: "This kind of 'verbalism'...provides the illusion of thought for those incapable of really thinking..." wrote Guenon. (ibid, p. 231)
Guenon defines progress, progressivism, and evolution as satanic and adherents as unconscious Satanists because for the most part their hubris and ignorance blind them to the extreme dangers of the "infernal fire" they play with: "..every theory that notably disfigures the Divinity should in some measure be regarded as satanic; and conceptions of a limited God and of a God who evolves should here be placed in the front rank...." Thus "evolutionism" in general and Modernist "conceptions" in particular are satanic. The 'immanentist' Christ-force of the Liberal Church is satanic because it "openly submits the Divinity to becoming." (ibid, p. 257)
Possessing the Body of the Church for Satan
"The coming struggle will emerge within the churches themselves; it will be precipitated by the enlightened (progressive) elements...the fight will then spread to thinking men and women everywhere who---in a protesting revolt---have denied orthodox churchianity and theology."(Spirit Master Djwhal Khul speaking through Alice Bailey, Externalization of the Hierarchy, pp. 453-454)
By the turn of the century, the beginnings of a counter-initiatic hierarchy of "enlightened progressive " elements had arisen and the "abomination of desolation" crept into the Church. Pope Pius X noted with alarm that progressive "thinking" was taking hold of the contemporary mind, and in that way taking possession of Western civilization, including Catholic laity and priests. The Pope defined progressivism as "Modernism" and in 1907 declared it a heresy in the encyclical called 'Pascendi Dominici Gregis." ("The Heresy of Modernism...seriously," Churchmouse Campanologist, May 26, 2009)
The Satanic Revolt as Modernist Heresy
"...the inventors of impure heresies (the) profaners and apostates...have opened their mouths wide against the divine glory." ...Church Father Cyril of Alexandria.
The Pope noted that Modernist "Christian" heretics were claiming that Christ is in us (pantheist monism) and that through evolution an immanentist Christ-force progressed and/or "emanated from nature spontaneously and of itself." (The Heresy of Modernism...seriously)
Since evolution implies continuous change, becoming, and/or progress, "Christian" heretics claim that immutable (unchanging) truths do not exist, therefore there is nothing immutable in the Bible or the Church....or for that matter in Americas' Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and Rule of Law. All are subject to change, for in that satanic monism conceptually dissolves the living, transcendent Christ into nature, everything becomes imaginatively infused with impersonal divine spirit, power, intent, determinism (fate), and motion. Thus claim heretics, religion itself lives and evolves, and "must in fact be changed."
"Christian" change-agents further claim that all religions and belief systems are true because the satanic divine-force suffuses and energizes all things. By extension of this perverse reasoning, Gaia is alive, and Gnosticism, Satanism, Wicca, Theosophy, and Sharia are true. This is syncretism (moral relativism), the uniting of good and evil, truth and lie, the holy and the unholy. R.J. Rushdoony writes:
"Now syncretism is destructive of the human mind, of rationality...(A) man who wants to unite good and evil...has lost the capacity for clear thinking. His mind is darkened, clouded, fuzzed over, and incompetent....Man, by presuming to be god, has by that act destroyed the possibility of true thinking; from so radically false a premise, no valid conclusion can follow." ("Why Is Rick Warren Waffling?" Lee Duigon, Chalcedon)
Seventy-one years after the Pope issued his encyclical, eminent Catholic theologian Malachi Martin observed that Modernist heresy has significantly diminished belief among Christian churchman as a whole, including prominently:
"...the Roman Catholic hierarchy and clergy (who have) relegated the very existence of Satan to the same fate as basic Roman Catholic and Christian teaching...It has been said by one mainstream Protestant clergyman in this regard that---disagreement with the Roman Catholic Church notwithstanding---the Catholic Church was always the anchor. With that anchor lost, all flounder." (Hostage to the Devil: The Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans, Martin, p. xv)
Satanic Revolt: America's Theological Crisis
Peter Jones, author of "Spirit Wars: Pagan Revival in Christian America" connects progressive Christian Liberalism to ancient devilish Gnosticism, saying they are kindred-spirits. He points to progressive Liberalism as the carrier of the occult spiritual virus (satanic revolt) into the Body of the Church where it acts to divide Christians against each other.
In her Washington Times article, Beware: Hell Exists, Theres No Christianity without Sin, Death, and the Resurrection, Janice Crouse addresses America's growing theological crisis, noting that the Evangelical Church has become divided against itself. Citing "Evangelicals Divided," in the April edition of First Things, she writes:
"First Things warns, If evangelical theology does not exercise the kind of intellectual humility required by Traditionalism, it will not survive it will risk disintegrating into ever more subjectivist and individualistic sects, many of them neither evangelical nor orthodox.
Albert Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary addresses this crisis in his book, The Disappearance of God. There is a growing chasm, notes Mohler. On one side are the traditionalists and on the other, the self-autonomous contemporary church, which defines itself over and against Traditionalism, or authentic Christianity.
Authentic Christianity is very narrowly defined. Mohler writes that all Christians across a vast denominational range who hold fast to the fundamental doctrines are Authentic Christians while all who do not are not by definition Christian. Fundamental doctrines are:
" The Trinity (including full deity and humanity of Jesus Christ); the authenticity of Scripture (the Revealed Word of God); the Incarnation (death, burial, resurrection); justification by faith;
sin (humanities willful revolt against God the Father); the traditional doctrine of Hell, and the absolute sovereignty of God the Father." (Psalm 1)
The contemporary church is strongly attracted to the modern kind of Christianity proposed by the Emerging Church, whose leaders include Brian McLaren, Rick Warren, and Rob Bell. However, the spirit of Modernist heresy energizes the Emergent Church, and in that the contemporary mind embraces its' pseudo-theology it is therefore uncomfortable with fundamental doctrine, said Mohler. It prefers change "progress" "novelty" tolerance "inclusion" and feelings, especially whatever feels good. It rejects discipline and wants humanistic feel-good messages and diversionary entertainment rather than expository sermons and sound teaching. Since its deity is a dead-god of all-inclusive love it never speaks of wrath and judgment, hence hell, sin, and repentance are not just unwelcome, but are in fact intolerable to the self-autonomous contemporary mind, noted Mohler.
The pseudo-theology of the Emergent Church already has much in common with New Age spirituality: http://carm.org/new-age-more/ This means that the Emergent Church is falling into the New Age with the contemporary church stumbling along in its' wake.
Lucifers' Coming New World Order
The Satanic Revolt has finally brought forth a legion of anti-saints, a fully-commissioned "counter-initiatic hierarchy" to usher in a New World Order. Rene Guenon describes the hierarchy as: "the inverse of the true saints, thus manifesting the most complete expression possible of inverted spirituality." (False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion, Lee Penn, p. 437)
These forces have invented a pseudo- religion, http://one-faith-of-god.org/default.asp and the Charter for America's Union, http://americas-union.org/ The bigger picture includes six such unions, http://heal-the-earth.org/unions.asp/ Major planetary forces can be seen here: http://heal-the-earth.org/ngos.asp
Lee Penn calls our attention to the United Religions Initiative. Wittingly or perhaps unwittingly the URI is the leading edge of the One-Faith-Of-God initiative. The URI is to a significant extent animated by New Age satanic-spirituality.Penn notes that evolution is absolutely central to New Age theology which is a syncretistic stew of Liberal Christianity, Theosophy, Spiritism, the Ancient Mysteries, Wicca, Goddess worship, and adulation of Lucifer.
The URI has attracted a disparate group of activists and powerful supporters. For example, the Dalai Lama, progressive churchmen from the People's Republic of China, pro-gay Episcopalians, radical Muslims, feminist witches, rich capitalist foundations, the Club of Rome, the Temple of Understanding and the Lucis Trust, formerly called Lucifer Publishing. Prominent supporters of the URI and globalism include occultist Robert Muller (former UN assistant secretary general), Neale Donald Walsh, George Soros, Mikhail Gorbachev, Maurice Strong, Ted Turner, and Barbara Marx Hubbard. (pp.5,7, 23-26)
New Age spirituality relies heavily on the spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Penn notes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a progressive vision of spiritualized totalitarianism that includes:
1. Praise for Lucifer as the light-bearer and giver of wisdom.
2. Proclaiming that we humans are gods and that death is not real
3. Advocacy for extreme population control, including eugenics and euthanasia
4. Utter contempt for traditional religions---with concentrated scorn directed at Judaism, evangelical Protestantism, and Roman Catholicism
5. Forecasting a pending (and for them, desirable) "selection" of mankind, in which the progressives enter the New Age and the reactionaries face extinction. For the New Age Apostles of "progressive" Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution." (ibid, p. 7)
Speaking through Hubbard, her spirit guide "Christ" prophesied in 1995 that the Rider of the Pale Horse will use the "sword" as one of his means to "kill those who choose to remain self-centered." (ibid, p. 322)
Revelations from the gods of this world
Speaking through Alice Bailey, Djwhal Khul predicted back in the 1940s that the spiritual hierarchy would: "bring to an end the long silence which has persisted since Atlantean days," and "renew an ancient sharing of secrets." Thus "in the immediate future," the spirit "Masters will walk openly among men...openly guiding and directing the affairs of humanity." (False Dawn, p. 262)
From the spirit-channeled revelations called Course in Miracles taught by New Age High Priestess Oprah Winfrey to the spirit-revelations of Neale Donald Walsh, spirits going by a variety of names are indeed speaking and "sharing secrets"....in local bookstores and right on TV. And what of Khul's prediction that Masters will openly guide the affairs of humanity? The plan is already in place: See:Transcended Masters and Elder Spirits will provide spiritual guidance: http://one-faith-of-god.org/officials/officials_master_spirits.asp
"Masters will walk openly among men...."
From the Royal Society (the national academy of science in the UK) and NASA, to the European Space Agency, the UN office for Outer Space Affairs, and to the Vatican's progressive astronomers, excited discussions abound, all centered upon the existence of highly evolved Space Brothers (aliens) and their anticipated arrival here on earth. Lord Martin Rees, President of the Royal Society announced that aliens may be "staring us in the face" in a form unrecognizable to humans. (Official Disclosure: Prepare for Contact, Donna Anderson, http://www.officialdisclosure.com/)
Longtime ET-believing UFO researchers however, are no longer excited but alarmed. Their research shows that modern alien abductions resemble ancient stories of demons. The similarity was not lost on UFO research-scientist John Keel: "Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology. It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have...coexisted with man throughout history....The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not..identical, to the UFO phenomenon. Victims of demonomania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees..." (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 260)
The Ruler of this World and His Inverted Spirituality
Where there is no God there is no truth, and the rebellious will reigns instead. But "the will" said Dostoevsky with his acute insight into the revolutionary mentality, "is the closest to nothing; the most assertive are closest to the most nihilistic."
Having murdered somewhere between 100,000,000-250,000,000 men, women and children, the satanic Communist and National Socialist regimes of the 20th century provided a foretaste of the planetary horrors waiting to be unleashed during the coming New Age, while the widespread rebelliousness, disorder, near universal corruption, and nihilistic barbarianism of the present day are further portents.
Though its' terrible work is far from finished, the Satanic revolt to "destroy everything that exists" has at long last given birth to a post-Christian West and to the most complete expression of inverted spirituality, the Supreme Bible of God: http://one-faith-of-god.org/final_testament/bible_of_god.htm
Chapter 1, the Almanac of Evil is a lengthy criminal indictment levied against the Roman Catholic Church, Popes, St. Irenaeus, and St. Paul, St. Luke, and the other Apostles. The crime of the Apostles? Setting up a criminal enterprise called Christianity: http://one-faith-of-god.org/final_testament/end_of_darkness/evil/evil_0010.htm
All people will worship the one-god. But who or what is it? Speaking through Bailey Djwhal Khul identified "the Ancient of Days" and the "Lord of the World, the One Initiator" as a spirit named Sanat Kumara. Kumara is one of "the mind-born Sons" of Siva. Venus, the planet from which Kumara came "...is Lucifer, the morning star."
Blavatsky noted that Christians call Kumara a fallen angel. Therefore Christians may correctly conclude that the New Age lord is the Devil, the hostile power that Christ called "the ruler of this world." (John 14:30) It is in Chapter 4, the Encyclical of God that Satan: " himself is raised up to the power of a Great Spirit of One Heaven and a protector of the final covenant." http://one-faith-of-god.org/final_testament/end_of_darkness/encyclical/encyclical_0040.htm
Behind the progressive One-God is Satan. He is Yaldabaoth, mother and father, genetic creator of man, first free thinker, Cybele, Moloch, the dread lord lifted up as the One-God. The Devil is the one by which :"Socialists recognize each other by the words, "In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done....Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds."
All who hope to enter the New Age will have to receive his mark and be infernally sealed for all eternity.
Something Evil This Way Comes
"...the very idea of tradition has been destroyed to such an extent that those who seek to recover it no longer know which way to turn, and are only too ready to accept all the false ideas presented to them in its place and under its name." (Rene Guenon, False Dawn, p. 436)
Something is happening and about to happen: "People no longer know what they have lost, much less that they themselves are lost....The landscape is changing, the skies are darkening---and this is something we know with a... spiritual sense, a spiritual urgency." (Albert Mohler, The Disappearance of God, p. 158)
A vast dark wing covers the West. Within its' shadow America implodes as the Church fractures and splinters apart. A vigorous shaking and threshing is going on. Something is happening that "we as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ should see and understand," warns Mohler. "For we cannot say that we were not warned." (Joel 2:30-32)
