Knowing the “how” will point us to the various sources of these movements, and knowing what the agenda of these sources is, will lead us to the “why” of it all.
Essentially, to know what to expect in our future we might well look into the past and witness the philosophies and beliefs of key individuals who have brought about idealistic shifts in our world. Of course the Bible speaks with abundant clarity on what will transpire in what we recognize scripturally as “the last days” and this is, and always shall be the lens through which we at The TRUTH Under FIRE will examine this world-system.
The agenda or “Plan” will effect every church here in America, as well as those the globe over; if you don’t believe this, then you need to read this article and learn precisely what the strategy of the “Plan” is; its quite alarming, I can assure you. My desire in sharing this is to in fact raise the alarm and call Christian’s attention to this affair, so that we might be on our guard, test every teaching by the light of scripture, and remain steadfast in our prayer closets, never forgetting for a moment that this is a spiritual warfare!
So for this first ‘T.T.U.F. Profile’ I chose to take a look at Alice A. Bailey, a woman heavily steeped in occult and mystical practices as well as a high ranking member, and later on a leader of the Theosophical Society. Here is a brief biography of this woman (little known by today’s Christian culture) who has had a profound effect on our world:
Alice Bailey was born on June 16th, 1880 in Manchester, England; she was raised in an orthodox Christian family which she would say later, made her very unhappy and a bad tempered little girl. "Life was not worth living," she said, and the feeling of worthlessness and a certain amount of curiosity about life and death led her to attempt suicide three times before she was even fifteen.
In 1917, after the breakup of her first marriage she moved to the United States, where she was introduced to the teachings of Theosophy. It was during this period that she had met, and married, her husband Foster Bailey (33rd degree Scottish Rite Freemason). She turned out to be a good pupil. Bailey soon rose through the ranks and became the editor of the American Theosophists' newspaper.

Between 1919 and 1949 (her death), she produced twenty-four books, including an autobiography, nineteen of these books were supposedly written by her Tibetan Master DK (Djwhal Khul- a spirit entity that channeled information through her). During the intervening years, Alice Bailey spent most of it working out what she referred to as "The Plan." The results of which, influenced the birth of many New Age groups: The Church Universal and Triumphant, Benjamin Creme's The Tara Center, the Robert Muller Schools and The Temple of Understanding, to name a few.
But when did her spiritual journey into the occult and mysticism begin?
At the age of fifteen her first mystical encounter occurred while her family had gone to church. While she was in a room reading, a man wearing a turban on his head suddenly entered her room. Startled, and not being able to say a word —an obvious out of place character in 19th century Manchester — this stranger spoke to her:
“He told me there was some work that it was planned that I could do in the world but that it would entail changing my disposition considerably; I would have to give up being such an unpleasant little girl and must try to get some measure of self-control. My future usefulness to Him and to the world was dependant on how I handled myself and the changes I could manage to make. He said that if I could achieve real self-control I could then be trusted and that I would travel all over the world and visit many countries, "doing your Master's work all the time" ... He added that He would be in touch with me at intervals of seven years apart.”

This was to be Alice Bailey's first contact with her Master Koot Humi. These contacts with "Secret Chiefs"; "Familiar Spirits"; "Angels"; and "Ascended Masters" is a common theme in the annals of history and has been the origin of many religious, prophetic and occult movements throughout the centuries. Zoroaster, Mohammed, John Dee, Francis Bacon, Aleister Crowley, Helena Blavatsky, Joseph Smith, Edgar Cayce and Benjamin Creme immediately come to mind.
The encounter with her fated second "Master" — and soon to be writing partner for an international esoteric movement — occurred in 1919, while having a quiet time on a hill close to her house. She heard a note of music sounding everywhere which was followed by a voice (Djwhal Khul) that asked her if she was willing to write some books. Having refused, saying that she wouldn't engage in any psychic practices, the voice gave her three weeks to reconsider.
Alice completely forgot about the subject when the voice made its appearance as scheduled. Agreeing to give it a try for a few weeks the first chapters of of Initiation, Human and Solar were written. After about a month, Alice got scared; refusing to do anymore work the Master Djwhal Khul told her to discuss it with her Master Koot Humi. Koot Humi confessed that it was, in fact, him that told DK to contact her and he gave Alice permission to proceed — after giving Mrs. Bailey the proper technique for enhanced telepathic communication.
Between 1919 and 1949 (her death), she produced twenty-four books, including an autobiography, nineteen of these books were supposedly written by her Tibetan Master DK (Djwhal Khul). During the intervening years, Alice Bailey spent most of it working out what she referred to as "The Plan." The results of which, influenced the birth of many New Age groups: The Church Universal and Triumphant, Benjamin Creme's The Tara Center, the Robert Muller Schools and The Temple of Understanding, to name a few.
Alice Bailey had a profound influence on scores of people who, in their turn, influenced the world over for the benefit and direction of the New Age/Spirituality and the New World Order (global governance); one such person is Robert Mueller, an Assistant Director for the United Nations, who also developed his "World Core Curriculum", upon which our own American public school philosophical system is based. He credits the underlying philosophy of his work to Alice Bailey and Master Djwhal Khul, the Tibetan Master (Ascended Master, i.e. a demonic spirit):
Berit Kjos of CROSSROADS ministry relates the following:
"During a visit to Arlington, Texas, some years ago, a friend took me to see the original Robert Muller school. While she waited in the car, I walked past a little Buddha, climbed the steps to the front door, and rang the bell. Gloria Crook, the Director opened the door and asked why I had come. I listed my credentials: I was interested in global education, was concerned about the environment, and was an immigrant from Norway--a country well known for its global concerns and admiration for the United Nations. I must have passed the test, because she invited me in and led me into a massive hallway. Looking to the left, I saw a room full of young mothers and pregnant women in yoga position. On a table next to the doorway, I noticed a stack of papers. The title startled me: ‘Occult Meditation.’
"To those who don't know God, the occult seems good, not bad, I thought to myself.
“Are you familiar with Alice Bailey?” she asked me as we entered a large cluttered office.
“Yes.” I nodded, well aware of her links to Theosophy and the occult messages she channeled from her favorite spirit guide. “Didn't she write books full of messages she received from the Tibetan Master, Djwhal Khul?”
“Yes,” answered Ms Crook. “Here, sit down and look at some of them.” She pulled down several of Bailey's books from a shelf and put them in my lap. I silently thanked God for His spiritual protection as I flipped through the pages of the first one, Education in the New Age. ...
Finally Ms Crook pulled two large golden frames from the wall and showed them to me. I shivered when I looked at the first. It pictured a beautiful caligraphied rendition of “The Great Invocation,” an occult prayer used around the world to invoke a global outpouring of spiritual light and power (Brave New Schools).
What other influences did Alice Bailey have on people and organizations? We shall see . . . in our next article! Until then, go with God Almighty, our LORD and SAVIOR, Jesus of Nazareth!
