"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32

T.T.U.F. PROFILES: A Look at Alice Bailey and The PLAN Pt. 2



~~ By James J. Fire

How much can a single person influence the world? Alice Bailey accomplished more than perhaps she even realized; others picked up her 'illumined' torch and ran with it, long after her death, and brought to fruition much of what she envisioned for the future of this world, and how it would be shaped to suit the Plan of the ‘World Teacher’ or Maitreiya. As we continue this T.T.U.F. Profile on Alice Bailey, we look at some of the organizations she founded, such as:

Lucis Trust is run through an international board of trustees whose membership is said to have included: John D. Rockefeller; Norman Cousins; Robert S. McNamara; Thomas Watson, Jr. (IBM, former U.S. Ambassador to Moscow); Henry Clausen- Grand Commander of the Supreme Council, 33rd Degree, Southern District Scottish Rite and Henry Kissinger. This would then tie Bailey's influential occult organization into the international conspiracy of elitists, including the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Bilderbergs, and the Trilateral Commission.

The Lucis Trust has resided for fifty years at the United Nations plaza; currently it’s located on Wall Street in New York; it provides worldwide financial support for the Arcane School, World Goodwill, Triangles, Lucis Publishing, Lucis Productions, Lucis Trust Libraries, and the New Group of World Servers. It also maintains the UN meditation room.
Lucis Trust is a powerful institution that enjoys "Consultative Status" with the United Nations, which permits it to have a close working relationship with the U.N., including seat on the weekly sessions, but most importantly, influence with powerful business and national leaders throughout the world.

Other creations of Alice Bailey are:
The Arcane School
Founded in 1923, the school gives correspondence courses in meditation and the occult from its branches in New York, Geneva, London and Buenos Aires.

World Goodwill
Founded in 1932, the organization is recognized by the United Nations today as an NGO. World Goodwill works directly with the "world federalists," and is part of the work to "Externalize the Hierarchy" of "Illumined Minds," which will usher in an "Age of Maitreya."
Through its founding of World Goodwill, Lucis Trust is "aggressively involved in promoting a globalist ideology":
Authors and participants in its various conferences read like a Who's Who of globalist insiders. Featured on its website, for example, is the Universal Declaration of Human Responsibilities, put forth in April 1998 as a companion document to the notorious UN Universal Declaration on Human Rights.
Signatories to the World Goodwill document include: Helmut Schmidt, former chancellor of West Germany; Malcolm Fraser, former Australian prime minister; Oscar Arias Sanchez, former prime minister of Costa Rica; Shimon Peres; Robert McNamara; Paul Volcker; and Jimmy Carter.
... it is as much a political organization as an occult religious one.
- New Age Roots, by Steve Bonta

Triangles
Founded in 1937, Triangles is the name of a global network of cells, whose members pray a "Great Invocation," especially on the full moon, when members of Triangle can be influenced by the astrological signs of the Zodiac.

Ten Seed Groups
Early on, Master DK informed Bailey of the Hierarchy's plan for "The Ten Seed-Groups". These seed-groups were to infiltrate all sectors of society, and be "esoterically anchored" with "new approaches to divinity." I have no doubt that today's New Age Movement is the result of the Hierarchy's "scattering of the seed", as Bailey put it, and that today's, arguably, open pagan society can largely be traced to this occult "plan". The Ten Seed Groups were "embryonic, like germinating seed". Through their occult practices these ten groups would work directly "under inspiration from the Hierarchy via the focused minds of the group." From Alice Bailey's DISCIPLESHIP IN THE NEW AGE - VOLUME I, p. 35-40, The Ten Seed-Groups consist of, and carry out their mission in following ways:

1) Telepathic Communicators
Summary of Work -Telepathic communication from soul to soul through: from mind to mind through integration; between humanity and Hierarchy (inner government of the planet) through Science of impression. Remember that the “science of Impression” is a euphemism for demonic possession, and that the hierarchy is actually the same principalities and powers as spoken of, in regards to Satan’s kingdom of darkness, in Ephesians chapter 6.

2) Trained Observers
Summary of Work- Dissipation of world glamour, illusion and maya through illumination.

3) Magnetic Healers
Summary of Work-Through "magnetic living". Through laws of life — laws of health and right human relationships. Through continuity of consciousness.

4) Educators in the New Age
Summary of Work -Education through inflow of the light of knowledge into "instinctual man". — Through inflow of the light of the wisdom into "intelligent man". Through applied knowledge, expressed wisdom and occult understanding in "spiritual man".

5) Political Organizers
Summary of Work-International understanding through communication of the divine (political) Will into races and nations, **linking the department of the Manu (the Ruler of the human race) with men.

6) Workers in the Field of Religion
Summary of Work -Through transcendental mysticism. Through transcendental occultism. Through transcendental religion.

7) Scientific Servers
Summary of Work-Through development of new hypotheses to substantiate the next step forward. Through sensitive reaction to spiritual energies and forces. Through release of energy to relate spirit and matter and precipitate the divine Plan.

8) Psychologists
Summary of Work-Through relationship of the human kingdom to the sub-human and the super-human kingdom. Through a study of the divine Plan for the five kingdoms of nature.

9) Financiers and Economists
Summary of Work-Through a study of the nature of prana or etheric energy. — Through study of deflection of this form of concretized energy into constructive channels and "ways of light". — Through study of the law of supply and demand.

10) Creative Workers
Summary of Work-Through linking life and form. Through philosophical relationship of synthesis and the Plan.

The most revealing part of the seed-groups is the fact that the political organizers link "the department of the Manu (the Ruler of the human race) with men". The Bible already tells us that "the ruler of the human race" is Satan (John 12:31 & 14:30; Ephesians 6:12; Luke 4:6-7; 2 Cor. 4), then it follows that "the department of Manu" must be but another name for the deceiver.

This is indeed the case. In Frontier: Science/Social Change, Paul Von Ward relates, "Hermetic Principles...comprise part of a body of knowledge allegedly given to humans by an advanced being more than 5,000 years ago. He has been known by various names, including Thoth or Seth in Egypt, Manu in India, Hermes in Greece, and Lucifer or Satan in the Judeo-Christian tradition."

As with any religion the Theosophical Society as well as Lucis Trust, and related organizations have their prayer as well. The Great Invocation is purportedly compatible with any and all religions, and is a means to unite the religions of the world. However, as with Secret Societies of all varieties, unless you know their glossary of terms, you won’t really understand what The Great Invocation is all about. Here is the prayer, and following is what is meant by it:

THE GREAT INVOCATION
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men ―
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the center which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

The Great Invocation-New Age Prayer

This glossary resulted from the study of one Dr. Robert A. Herrmann
Glossary of Theosophical 'Great Invocation' Terminology
who has an extremely comprehensive analysis of Alice A. Bailey’s teachings from a biblical perspective:

• Light, light = Luciferian enlightenment.
• God = Satan.
• stream forth = overshadow.
• love = various forms of Scripturally defined evil or, generally, hatred.
• Christ = Antichrist.
• little wills of men = the claimed unintelligent, weak and inferior desires of individuals; especially those that follow conservative Judeo-Christian doctrine.
• purpose = to prepare for the appearance of the Antichrist.
• Masters = demons or demon controlled individuals.
• race of men = "humanity," as ruled by Lucifer.
• plan = complete world domination in preparation for and after the appearance of the Antichrist.
• seal the door where evil dwells = violent, if necessary, eradication of those that follow Judaism, conservative Christianity, some liberal Christianity, and other similar orthodox religions.
• power = often hideous and actual destructive forces.

The Great Invocation has now been translated into 50 languages and is the mantra of the New Age. It has even received the attention of world dignitaries at the UN where it has been sounded at many official conferences and during the opening ceremonies in 1992 at the UN's Earth Summit in Rio. During a talk given by Ida Urso at a Lucis Trust Arcane School conference in 1995 the connections between the UN and the Great Invocation were explained:

"It is no coincidence that we are celebrating both the 50th anniversary of the Great Invocation and the United Nations, both in different ways are pivotal to the Plan... let us together complete the triangle of light... let us contemplate that world body--'the hope of humanity'--which was conceived just 50 years ago under the impulse of the three spiritual Festivals (falling on March 28th, April 27th and May 26th)...
It was on April 25, 1945 two days previous to the full moon of Taurus and the Festival of Wesak [note: the best time to recite the Great Invocation, according to Lucis Trust, (as the energies of the Hierarchy are in alignment with the Earth] that delegates from 50 nations, met in San Francisco for a conference known officially as the United Nations Conference on International Organization...
On this period the Tibetan Master tells us: 'Not for nothing is this conference being held during the five days of the Wesak Full Moon. It will be a time of supreme difficulty, in which the Forces of Light will face... the forces of selfishness and separativeness.'" It seems the dreaded UN was a spiritual undertaking in alignment with the luciferic light.

Much of the above information in this article has been quoted and gleaned from two web pages of “Conspiracy Archives”. Visit the following links to read the entire articles:

Conspiracy Archives Web Site-Lucis Trust & Alice Bailey

Alice Bailey & Djwhal Khul

We have seen much of what this “Plan” entails already. From another source, that being Let Us Reason we have a bit more on what this satanic vision is all about –

Alice Bailey, in an address at the Arcane School Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, suggested that the "Shamballa force"-the force from the invisible dimensions led by the Lord Maitreya-will be "destructive." It will also, she said, eject unbelievers from the earth:
"The decision to release the Shamballa force during this century into direct contact with the human kingdom is one of the final and most compelling acts of preparation for the New Age. The Shamballa force is destructive and ejective ... inspiring new understanding of The Plan....It is this force ... which will bring about that tremendous crisis, the initiation of the race into the mysteries of the ages. (Alice Bailey, The Externalizing of the Mysteries, pt.1 p.171)

Guess who the unbelievers are? When the Church is removed and they think it is because of the new age Christ, it is only then their plan will take shape for a new world order. One will have the choice to accept the New Age Messiah, receive the initiation or they will face the other alternative of being ejected. This means destruction. This doesn’t sound like the love and tolerance we have been hearing from those who criticize the Christians for teaching there is only one Christ.

Others that teach this view of ‘lesser humans’ who aren’t spiritually sophisticated enough to perceive the great truth of the New Age must be expelled from the Earth are Barbara Marx Hubbard and David Spangler.

Mr. Spangler also has made statements that would shock biblical Christians:

“Christ is the same force as Lucifer... Lucifer prepares man for the experience of Christhood. (He is) the great initiator.... Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into a New Age ... each of us in some way is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation ... for it is an invitation into the New Age (David Spangler Reflections on the Christ p.44-45).”

I am reminded of the verse from Isaiah that says,

Isaiah 5:20
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Such are the dogmas of Alice Bailey, New Age leaders, Emergent Leaders who claim to be Christians, and other occult groups and secret societies, that invert the Truth and replace it with lies.
Bailey teaches that this (Shamballa) destructive force would promote a crisis which would lead to the Initiation of the race into the "mysteries of the ages" is revealing. All who refuse the Luciferic Initiation into the New Age are considered unfit to enter the New Age. This will begin a crisis period as the earth is cleansed and purified.

Revelation, chapter 17 speaks about mystery Babylon that had mystery initiations (the Occult). The Bible addresses this as part of the last empire that raises its fist of defiance against the God of the universe.

"The final break or division between the so-called black and white forces, for this particular world cycle, will take place during the period of the sixth root race in the present round. Towards the close of the sixth root race, before the emergence of the seventh, we shall have the true Armageddon about which so much has been taught.
A small cycle, corresponding to this final battle and cleavage, will appear during the sixth sub-race which is now in process of formation." (From A Treatise on White Magic by Alice A. Bailey, pages 543-544.)

Thus the birth of their utopia will be drenched in the blood of any who would refuse, oppose, and rebel against the despotic domain of this coming new world order; and the leaders of this movement have no misgivings about such a directive.
Some New Agers might point out that in “your Bible” Christ Jesus Himself likewise drenches the blood of His enemies upon His own clothes when He returns (Isaiah 63:1-6), so how are Christians who claim this New Age Plan is reprehensible, any different?

Simply this: When Christ returns, He is arriving on Earth as its Judge, and will mete out justice for those who have rejected His Lawful right as God and Creator of all, and who also refused His offer of salvation via the Gospel of Jesus Christ (see Deut. 32:35 and 2 Thess. 1:6-9)

Thus concludes part Two of Three in this T.T.U.F. Profile on Alice Bailey. One must consider that for the plans, concepts, ideologies of a woman who lived almost a century ago, the people intent on bringing these things to pass are not frivolous as the longevity of this agenda has proven out. The Power Elite is quite determined, empowered by the “spirit of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2) that is none other than Satan himself, the Master Conspirator.

For the concluding part (Three) of this article, we will divert somewhat from Alice Bailey herself and examine more closely the Plan she has introduced via Djwhal Khul, her Ascended Master spirit guide.

Until then, Keep your eyes on the skies and DON’T BELIEVE the LIES! WALK in the TRUTH of God’s Holy Word!

AVATAR – The World of PANDORA: Its Spiritual Dogma


~~by James J. Fire


As of this writing, the goal of the film AVATAR, to gross the 2 billion dollar mark is completely feasible; obviously it’s a smash hit with an extreme likelihood for a sequel, to which James Cameron seems agreeable.

I’d been hearing very good things about the movie, and when some from my church gave their ‘thumb’s up’ with no small amount of enthusiasm, I decided, being an avid fan of science fiction/fantasy, to go see it myself.

On the surface, the story of Avatar was very similar to other stories with the same thematic content. The outsider encounters the natives of the land, (sometimes) initially opposing them, but later becoming amicable to their culture, and eventually adopting it and them as their own.

We saw it in Dances with Wolves, we also saw it in The Last Samurai and several other films. The theme was successfully achieved in Avatar no less than these others, but what made this film stand apart was the beautifully alien aspects of the film: never before was I so awe-struck with the visual imagery of a film, not since the New Line Cinema cash cow of The LORD of the RINGS.


I chose not to see the film in 3-D (those glasses for some reason gives me a headache), but nevertheless, it had a profound impact on me. The vision of the film was quite literally like nothing I had seen previously. I, along with the spell bound audience witnessed flora and forests filled with fantastic plants, and trees both exotic and luminescent in vivid colors that were eye popping. Animals were both wondrous and terrifying to behold. The land, the ‘floating mountains’ and the whole world that is Pandora made me feel (along with the rest of the audience) like this was a place I wish I could visit.

In today’s hectic world in the midst of our concrete jungles, and demanding schedules, it’s no small wonder why we yearn for escape into a natural habitat where pollution, traffic, noise, overtime, deadlines, and modern hassles of every day life can’t touch us with their stress-inspiring influences.

This is the world that the main character, Jake Sully encounters, but not all is kind in paradise. There are dangers galore as well as mysteries on that alien world.

Here is an outline of the story, in brief:

In the future, Jake, a paraplegic war veteran, is brought to another planet, Pandora, which is inhabited by the Na'vi, a humanoid race with their own language and culture. Those from Earth find themselves at odds with each other and the local culture.
When his brother is killed in a robbery, paraplegic Marine Jake Sully decides to take his place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy corporate figurehead Parker Selfridge's intentions of driving off the native humanoid "Na'vi" in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na'vi people with the use of an "avatar" identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand - and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.

Plot Summary for AVATAR


During the course of the film, I became emotionally identified with the Na’vi and their plight as victims of the overpowering human forces of military might that would take what they wanted, regardless of the needs of the natives or their right to live as they would.

Comparing the simple, natural culture of the wonderful Na’vi with their respect for the land, and the animal life with the jaded, calloused, imperialistic humans who had no such regard, but were intent on mining a precious ore at any cost for huge profits, it wasn’t at all difficult separating the good guys from the bad guys.

Even Jake at the beginning saw his own infiltration into the Na’vi culture by way of his ‘avatar’ (an artificially produced hybrid of Na’vi and human genetic material to be inhabited psychically via high-tech gadgetry, by the human host [Jake Sully in this case] that can function just like the natives of the planet, breathing their air, eating their foods, adapting to the culture as one of their own) as “just another mission”, albeit the success of which would guarantee him a medical procedure that would give him back the use of his legs.

Greed and avarice for the precious ore, the mining of which would ruin the Na’vi race; the injustice of man upon man – Jake Sully, a war veteran, should have been afforded the procedure that would grant him the use of his legs due to his loyal service to his people, but instead won’t get the operation until he performs yet another task for the industrial giant corporation commissioned to mine Pandora; the cold indifference with which the military views the natives, which had also led to the ruin of planet Earth (it’s mentioned in passing that the planet’s eco-system was all but destroyed) reveals that mankind (even 150 years into the future!) hasn’t changed at all.


In the end, the story ends well, but with an ominous overtone that it’s far from over; the belligerent humans are escorted off the planet, but one gets the definite impression that they’ll be back with even greater forces and strip the land bare in order to get what they want!

As you can probably guess by now, I thoroughly enjoyed the film as a story. Being a science fiction nut, I relished all the different aspects of the film, most especially the scenery and the CGI effects but also the love story between ‘Jake-sully’ (pronounced as one name by the natives) and Neytiri, daughter of the Na’vi chief of the tribe.

So, no one can accuse me of bashing the film because I just didn’t like it! One might get that impression based on what I will now share as a Christian, coming from the world view that adheres to the Bible and biblical truth.

Why even discuss ‘biblical truth’ in connection with a fantasy film, a fictional story?

Simply because any story, even a fictional one presents ideas, and that’s where beliefs develop. There are times when we let emotions and emotional attachments lower our guard as it were, and subtle ideas can influence what we believe. One single movie isn’t going to alter our world view, but it can surely influence our thinking so that we become more open to ideas that we otherwise wouldn’t entertain.

So, with no small amount of emotional detachment I will now examine the different ideas presented in AVATAR and the world of Pandora, along with the spiritual dogma they convey.

The entire world of Pandora revolves around the central spirituality that is “Eywa” – the goddess Spirit that indwells all living things on the planet; essentially Eywa is the planet.
This is called pantheism - a doctrine that equates God with the forces and laws of the universe.

The idea that the Deity of Pandora is feminine is in line with various religions, but this idea, in conjunction with a goddess that is basically ‘one with nature’ is thoroughly Wiccan (witchcraft) in concept.

Can’t the God that we as Christians know, possess a female persona?

No, simply because the nature of the feminine is to birth new life from itself, thus if the idea of a Goddess Creator were true, then She would create out of herself, and the universe would be an integral part of her.

The Bible teaches that God created Adam in His image, and it’s the male that provides the seed, which will initiate life, but that life is not something integral to himself; likewise God is transcendent from His creation – it’s not a part of Him.

Pantheism teaches that all of nature is a part of God/Goddess in essence, but if this is believed, then such a goddess is indiscriminate in her interactions with her creation-tornados, earthquakes, storms, and other acts of nature randomly kill off portions of her population regardless of who and what they are, whether they are ‘good pantheists’, dutiful caretakers of ‘Mother Earth’ or rabid industrialists bent on profits and personal gratification. Certainly diseases born on Earth victimize the new born, children, adults and the elderly with no sense of rhyme or reason.

Here are a couple of links that define pantheism and its belief system –

Pantheism from the Sacred Horse's Mouth

C.A.R.M.'s View on Pantheism

The Na’vi are a people steeped in the worship of nature, and utilize their ‘magic’ based on power emanating from Eywa, and this is shamanism, much like that of the native American religion. Possessing ‘strong medicine’ means using natural hallucinogens to acquire visions or obtaining knowledge not readily available through the five senses.

On Pandora, the Na’vi don’t use strong medicine, but rather have an open neural network capacity that derives from their spinal column and into their tails (yes, Na’vi have tails!). The tail of the Na’vi have filaments that intermesh with the same sort of filaments on other life forms (such as the flying dragons portrayed in the film, other animal life, and even the sacred Tree through which Eywa appears to communicate – we saw this when 'Jake-sully' attempted to communicate through his avatar with Eywa and warn Her about the imminent attack by the human military).

It’s interesting to note that in Eastern religions, inner harmony with Brahma (the ‘All’ of creation) as well as communication with the spiritual realm occurs when one aligns their charkas in order to become receptive to the influences of spirits and spiritual beings; these charkas are located where? – yup, you guessed it! Along the length of our spinal column (and no doubt our tails as well if we had any!).

This suggests that all living things are in some way sentient, that they are self aware, possess spirits and in some fundamental way, equal to but different than mankind. The very Native American practice of “thanking” the prey (a deer or buffalo, etc) for willingly sacrificing itself and allowing itself to be slain ‘for the good of the tribe’ was featured in this film. Here is the idea that all in nature are brothers: that just as the buffalo lays down its life to feed the tribe, members of the tribe will one day lay down their lives, be buried in the Earth, which will decompose and feed the grass, which will in turn feed the buffalo, which will again sacrifice itself to feed the tribe, etc. etc. This is known as the Circle of Life and is prominent in the philosophies of many Nature-worship religions.

The reverence of nature and the worship of such is something that’s been around since the beginning of the fall of mankind into sin. Since we are a part of nature, then we are by extension also worshipping ourselves. It’s as the Bible states:

“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

Romans 1:21-23, 25


UPDATE (5/18/11):The UN has developed a document that, if passed will grant the Earth 'human rights' and elevate her status to "a living being" much in line with pantheistic and pagan beliefs. Visit the following site:
~ end update.


Mother Earth's 'Human Rights'


While Pandora has its goddess, Wicca (and all pagan religions) has hers as well, known as Gaia: different name, same deal. A Feminine deity that incorporates nature as part of Herself. This is why the Environmentalist Movement is so heavily endorsed by witches of all types and breeds, and also by the U.N. and of course such esoteric organizations as the Theosophical Society and Lucis Trust which permeates so many organizations and influences our societal awareness (we are currently posting articles regarding these organizations under our ongoing series ‘T.T.U.F. Profiles'). It’s all a part of harmonizing the world into a unified, global government and religion that will honor Mother Nature/Gaia.

Dr. Greg Reid, founder of Youth Fire and author of several books, of late: Trojan Church, had this keen insight:

“In the Futurechurch (sic) there will arise an imitation of Christ Jesus and His bride, the church . . .” which is Lucifer who will inhabit the anti-Christ, and will demand the worship of every one on the planet, and his own bride, Gaia – Mother of us all!

Please don’t take me wrong; I’m not suggesting that the director/writer James Cameron is necessarily out to convert us all to a global consciousness and alter our world view to become more pagan and adhere less firmly to a stubbornly persistent Judeo-Christian ethic, but nevertheless the subject matter and content of this film has the propensity to play on our emotions and admonish us to take a look to our own goddess-world and see how she herself is being stripped naked, abused, ransacked for the sake of corporate profit.

I won’t deny that as Christians we ought to be concerned about being good stewards of our planet; I’m always picking up trash and disposing of it properly, careful to recycle, and use resources wisely. This doesn’t mean I worship nature. This doesn’t mean I find no fault with such corporate greed as well.

Yet the powers that be, have an intended goal of shifting our thinking into such a pantheistic view, as sympathetically portrayed in this film, for their own agenda; ultimately that agenda will result in the scenario described above. It’s sadly intriguing that the church is being swept up into the Emergent Movement and called upon to focus our affection and attention on the Earth, to clean her up: ecologically, socially, economically, etc. and this too will tailor the undiscerning Christian into shifting their priorities from the Kingdom of Heaven to a worldly kingdom preparing for the arrival of their ‘World Teacher’ a.k.a. the anti-Christ.

As I said, this film all on its own isn’t about to transform us all into a bunch of tree-hugging, New Age globalists, but it is another brick in the building of the structure of a philosophical Tower of Babel where paganism is paramount.

Christians should be aware of the underlying message this film delivers, and if parents allow their children to go see it, this could be used as an opportunity to educate them on the beliefs of Wicca, Earth religions, New Age dogma and how these are diametrically (and diabolically) different than what we have been delivered by our Deity, our heavenly FATHER Who reigns in Heaven for all eternity.

For a couple of final thoughts, please view this video clip on the subject by Alex Jones who has some interesting things to share:

Alex Jone's on Avatar and Globalization

Also in considering the appearance of the Na’vi, they are very tall, and blue skinned. How is this relevant? Think about the Hindu deities, among them, the god Vishnu, who is seen as the preserver of the Universe. Certainly the Na’vi are likewise intent on preserving their habitat, unlike the human military machine who want to destroy it in favor of profitable monetary gain. Both Vishnu and the Na’vi are seen as ‘Preservers’ in that sense.

So what does Vishnu actually look like? Follow this link to find out:

T.T.U.F. Profiles - Alice Bailey and The PLAN



~ By James Fire
This begins an intermittent series of ‘profiles’ on particular individuals who have had significant influence on the shaping of our world today.
The idea for this series sprang up as I recalled a book I read by David Breese, “The Seven Men That Rule the World from the Grave”. It’s an excellent book and I would recommend it to any one who wants to acquire a comprehensive world view on how our world has been shaped, and by whom (such as Darwin, Freud, Marx, etc).
As we observe the emerging, and merging religious dogmas, beliefs and organizations and religions, as well as political, economic, and social forces amalgamating into a global identity we might step back and wonder “How did we ever come to this?”

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.
To learn more about what ‘American Theosophy’ teaches, see the following web site:

American Theosophy In Their Own Words

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.”

- UNFINISHED AUTOBIOGRAPHY, by Alice Bailey, 1951, Lucis Trust, pp. 35-36

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):

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!

IF YOU CAN FIND A BETTER DEAL, TAKE IT!


By A.M. Kisly

I trust that you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years celebration with your friends and family. As you may have noticed Jim and I some took time out with our own families as well.

The good news is that we can now get back to the business of proclaiming the truth as we bring you the many news updates and articles that will be forthcoming in the next days and weeks.

The following article was written by Ann Coulter, a well-known and outspoken writer and contributor of World Net Daily. Many of you may have seen the discussion on Fox News with regards to the comments made by Brit Hume. They were, in what I thought, very encouraging and compassionate words to Tiger Woods. I pray he heeds Brit's advice. As always, the liberal media, who are extremely anti-christ, anti-christianity, hate mongers and lovers if filth jumped all over Brit's comments, some demanding a public apology.

I say DON'T DO IT BRIT!

The following article by Ann Coulter was in my opinion a great response, as she so poetically and correctly states, "If you can find a better deal, Take it!"

If you can find a better deal, take it!

Someone mentioned Christianity on television recently, and liberals reacted with their usual howls of rage and blinking incomprehension.

On a Fox News panel discussing Tiger Woods, Brit Hume said, perfectly accurately:
"The extent to which he can recover, it seems to me, depends on his faith. He is said to be a Buddhist. I don't think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. So, my message to Tiger would be, 'Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.'"

Hume's words, being 100 percent factually correct, sent liberals into a tizzy of sputtering rage, once again illustrating liberals' copious ignorance of Christianity. (Also illustrating the words of the Bible: "How is it you do not understand me when I speak? It is because you cannot bear to listen to my words" [John 8:43].)

In the Washington Post, Tom Shales demanded that Hume apologize, saying he had "dissed about half a billion Buddhists on the planet."

Is Buddhism about forgiveness? Because, if so, Buddhists had better start demanding corrections from every book, magazine article and blog posting ever written on the subject, which claims Buddhists don't believe in God, but try to become their own gods.

I can't imagine that anyone thinks Tiger's problem was that he didn't sufficiently think of himself as a god, especially after that final putt in the Arnold Palmer Invitational last year.

In light of Shales' warning Hume about "what people are saying" about him, I hope Hume's a Christian, but that's not apparent from his inarguable description of Christianity. Of course, given the reaction to his remarks, apparently one has to be a regular New Testament scholar to have so much as a passing familiarity with the basic concept of Christianity.

On MSNBC, David Shuster invoked the "separation of church and television" (a phrase that also doesn't appear in the Constitution), bitterly complaining that Hume had brought up Christianity "out-of-the-blue" on "a political talk show."

Why on earth would Hume mention religion while discussing a public figure who had fallen from grace and was in need of redemption and forgiveness? Boy, talk about coming out of left field!

What religion – what topic – induces this sort of babbling idiocy? (If liberals really want to keep people from hearing about God, they should give Him his own show on MSNBC.)

Most perplexing was columnist Dan Savage's indignant accusation that Hume was claiming that Christianity "offers the best deal – it gives you the get-out-of-adultery-free card that other religions just can't."

In fact, that's exactly what Christianity does. It's the best deal in the universe. (I know it seems strange that a self-described atheist and "radical sex advice columnist faggot" like Savage would miss the central point of Christianity, but there it is.)

God sent his only son to get the crap beaten out of him, die for our sins and rise from the dead. If you believe that, you're in. Your sins are washed away from you – sins even worse than adultery! – because of the cross.

"He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross" (Colossians 2:14).

Surely you remember the cross, liberals – the symbol banned by ACLU lawsuits from public property throughout the land?

Christianity is simultaneously the easiest religion in the world and the hardest religion in the world.

In the no-frills, economy-class version, you don't need a church, a teacher, candles, incense, special food or clothing; you don't need to pass a test or prove yourself in any way. All you'll need is a Bible (in order to grasp the amazing deal you're getting) and probably a water baptism, though even that's disputed.

You can be washing the dishes or walking your dog or just sitting there hating Susan Sarandon and accept that God sent his only son to die for your sins and rise from the dead ... and you're in!

"Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9).
If you do that, every rotten, sinful thing you've ever done is gone from you. You're every bit as much a Christian as the pope or Billy Graham.

No fine print, no "your mileage may vary," no blackout dates. God ought to do a TV spot: "I'm God Almighty, and if you can find a better deal than the one I'm offering, take it."

The Gospel makes this point approximately 1,000 times. Here are a few examples at random:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).

"For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8).

"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23).

In a boiling rage, liberals constantly accuse Christians of being "judgmental." No, we're relieved.

Christianity is also the hardest religion in the world because, if you believe Christ died for your sins and rose from the dead, you have no choice but to give your life entirely over to Him. No more sexual promiscuity, no lying, no cheating, no stealing, no killing inconvenient old people or unborn babies – no doing what all the other kids do.

And no more caring what the world thinks of you – because, as Jesus warned in a prophecy constantly fulfilled by liberals: The world will hate you.

With Christianity, your sins are forgiven, the slate is wiped clean and your eternal life is guaranteed through nothing you did yourself, even though you don't deserve it. It's the best deal in the universe.

You gotta love it when someone takes a stand for God!
