New World Order – the Kingdom of Darkness
OVERVIEW – New World Order & Kingdom of Darkness
” All the kingdoms of the world and all their glory, it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I want.”– The Devil (Luke 4.6)
Regardless of personal viewpoint concerning the new world order, the extent of its implications are dire. The very real threat concerning everything associated with the kingdom of darkness does exist and is evident in society today. In this article, the reference to the kingdom of darkness is defined and refers to all those that associate or align themselves with the purposes and beliefs in the Devil, Satanism, Satanic organizations and the like. As the primary goal of these organizations is to subvert and/or destroy all Judaeo-Christian foundations and belief systems.
The Oldest Lie in the Book
The ultimate plan of those aligned with the kingdom of darkness pivots on the devil’s original lie. which is to convince people to disregard the creator God who made them and be the god of their own life (Gen 3.5).
Warning against the New World Order
A very strict warning that comes from the Bible before you begin to study the practices of evil is admonished in the following verses:
For your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you to be wise as to what is good and simple as to what is evil.– Romans 16.19
…. We would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs.– 2 Corinthians 2.11
God calls us to study deeply the things that are good, and be simple concerning what is evil. Not that we should be ignorant of what is evil, because we should be aware of what the enemy is doing. However we have to be careful and setup guards in our own mind when studying occultic activities, as such studies can lead people to obsessions or bad habits.
History of an attempt at a New World Order
Since ancient times, there have been many societies and people that have made it their goal to, by whatever means necessary, discredit and subvert the influences of Judeo-Christianity. The Jewish people have been persecuted the most out of all people groups in history. Second to them are some of the most brutal executions of Christians that died for their faith in the first few centuries AD.
Some of the famous men and leaders of history attempted to influence the world they lived in to abandon Christianity. Others have greatly influenced the world through indirect means to attempt to push people away from God. A list of a few famous anti-Christians are as follows:
Adolf Hitler (1889-1945)
Adolf was a Nazi, which was a religion of his own creation. He hated Christianity as recorded in the book ‘Hitler’s Table Talk – 1941-1944,’ a book that recorded many of the conversations Hitler had with his Nazi soldiers. His ultimate goal was to destroy both Jews and Christians. [“…the only way of getting rid of Christianity is to allow it to die little by little.” -Hitler’s Table Talk, pg 61]
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)-
Author of ‘ The Future of Illusion (1927),’ in which he tried to convince others that the believe in God was simply a function of psychological consolation.
Friedrich Nietzche (1844-1900)- famous for the quote ‘God is dead.’
Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011) – A Texas born Journalist and self proclaim Atheist. He often speaks on and debates against religion and discourages others from believing in God.
Osama bin Laden – Bin Laden was deeply anti-Jew and anti-Christian.
Karl Marx (1818-1883)
Karl Marx once wrote ” I wish avenge myself against the One who rules above all.” – Meaning against God. He was a self proclaimed Atheist, however some accused him of practicing Satanism. He discouraged many from believing in God.
Madalyn Murray O’Hair (1919-1995) – was an atheist activist, focused on influencing others to turn away from the belief in God.
Joseph Stalin (1878-1953)
Stalin wanted to bring the world into the submissive duty of communism. He was extremely anti-religious and anti- Christian. He literally destroyed churches and murdered Christians because of his deep hatred for religion beliefs.
Aleister Crowley [1875-1947]
Aleister Crowley, regarded by some in his time as the most wicked man alive. He is directly responsible and related to many social movements over the past century. These movements can be traced back to him as the originator or inspiration for many anti-Christian societies and social movements.
Aleister Crowley has influenced many different people and created philosophies and influential movements with a plan to organize a ‘New Age.’ One that embraced his philosophy ‘do what thou wilt,’ or basically, be your own god. This philosophy that Crowley issued echoes the devils original intention to entice mankind in the garden of Eden. Where he told Eve she could be ‘like God’ (Gen 3.5). Some of the movements and influences Crowley has had on society are:
- The Drug Revolution
- The Sex Revolution
- The New Age Movement
- The Beetles
- Charles Manson
- Various Music & Rock Bands (such as Ozzy Osborn in Black Sabbath, Jimmy Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Jim Morrison)
- Timothy Leary – Harvard Professor, Drug Guru
- Harry Hay – Founder of the Modern Homosexual Movement
Aleister Crowley founded and reformed many different organizations, focused on destroying Christianity and systems of social order. Such organizations were The OTO – Ordo Templi Orientis (in 1912), Religion of Thelema, The A:A (Argentium Astrum — the Silver Star). Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. He wrote various books famously used by those involved in Satanism and witchcraft such as; The book called ‘Magic.’ The Book of the Law, Qabalistic Writings, The Equinox, Magick Without Tears and over 50 other writings including various books and poetry.
The Church of Satan has made it very clear that their purpose is to destroy the Church of God and influence the youth into their philosophical view: ‘do what thou will,’ or do whatever you want to do. Anthon LeVey (Founder of the Church of Satan) and other Satanic movement leaders such as Rex Church advertized their plans to influence society. Their goal is to influence people through aesthetics and the arts, using mechanisms such as poetry and the music industry. This also includes various other types of propaganda in order to influence the youth and people in society.
One of the most powerful mediums of influence in the world is music. It appeals directly to our emotions without the filter of our minds. Music has the ability to spark emotions and implant ideas into our minds simply by listening and because we enjoy the way it sounds.
Many music artists confess their support of the Church of Satan’s philosophies, and acknowledge they are influencing the youth in a negative fashion. Many music artists are involved in witchcraft and spiritualism, believing they channel spirits when they perform.
The purpose of this article is not to discourage any form of music but rather simply reveal the evidence. All which point to the fact that the church of Satan’s philosophies and plans are truly being carried out in the music industry.
As mentioned in the beginning of this article, the agenda for the kingdom of darkness is being played out according to the design of its founder and king, the Devil. As we look throughout history, and examine the pawns that the Devil uses for his plans, we can find similarities. Links between agendas in different ages, and the fingerprints of a supernatural force behind their works. The Bible tells us plainly what the Devils’ goals and mission is. Ultimately, his goals are recorded in the Book of Isaiah, Ch.6, Lucifer declares:
- “I will ascend into heaven”
- “I will exalt my throne above the stars of God”
- “I will sit upon the mountain of congregation in the uttermost North”
- “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds”
- “I will make myself like the Most High.”
The Devils Agenda
His goals and plans are to selfishly make himself like God, or rather exalt himself above God. His plans for mankind are not similar, he is the thief and the destroyer (John 10.10), his goal is to destroy mankind, the very created image of God. He promises god-likeness to anyone who would listen to him and turn away from God, however the end of that road is destruction for all who follows. His promises are lies; to give power and treasure to anyone that would be seduced by their own sinful desires. Not realizing he is only making them a slave to his work and taking away their eternal riches and rewards in heaven.
Independent verification is one of the many scientific procedure used to examine data for validity. If we are able to identify similar patterns between two completely separate components that have no relational value. We may conclude on some level, a verification of the data involved.
There are eight strong argument for the Devil that can be examined systematically.
Consensus of History and Religion
Every religion in the world throughout all of history includes the belief in evil spirits in some form or another. The belief in each world religion does not only denote an explanation for evil, but also records common encounters and eye-witness testimonies of people who have encountered them.
Authority of the Bible / Christian Literature
The Bible, not only accurately and reliable records historic events, but countless other pieces of Christian literature refer to the reality of spiritual possessions and the presence of evil spirits. From Jesus, through the Apostles and Historic Church leaders, to modern day scholars, we have the recognition of the existence of evil spirits.
This is significant because many critics disregard evidence of evil spirits in ancient societies as some type of sickness, because the people were not able to tell the difference. However, recording of demonic possession to this day remain similar, ruling out the possibility of physical or mental sickness. Normal health people experiencing severe psychological changes and supernatural events surrounding their activities after being involved in something occultic.
Eye-witness accounts are the evidence of historic facts, as they are used by scholars to systematically piece together past events. We cannot dismiss every statement of supernatural accounts as imaginative manifestations of the human psyche. Especially when it is so widely recognized by well establish historians, even those that corroborate stories from different time and places. Testimony of practicing spiritualists/ occultists describe a vivid picture of the works of malevolent supernatural forces. These practitioners believe in literal evil spirits that they have had personal encounters with.
Testimony of Former Spiritualists/ Occultists
Former occult practitioners, and even skeptics cannot deny the evidence when investigating malevolent supernatural forces & haunting in different places. Many former practitioners who where delivered from the occult or spiritual oppression now live a life separate from these occultic activities. They still bear witness to supernatural incidents they has encountered in their past.
Phenomenon of Spirit Possession
Almost every world culture, religion both historically and in modern times record multiple incidents of literal human possession by malevolent spiritual forces. A spiritual force invades a person body making them do or act on impulsion completely abnormal to their own character, or do things no ordinary person would do, often in supernatural formats. Those possessed by demons often display supernatural qualities such as supernatural strength, supernatural knowledge (divination), changes in their physical appearance, spiritual tournament (Mark 5).
“It seems clear from the literature on possession that a majority of cases have had involvement with the occult—a frequency far greater than might be expected in the general population.” – psychiatrist M. Scott Peck; [observes in the book:] In People of the Lie
Hostility to all Biblical Christianity in Occult Literature
It is a very interesting fact that almost every occultic piece of literature throughout all history has some reference to degrading Christianity or the things of God. It’s almost as if a special beacon is carefully placed in occult literature to point out of the opposition between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness. Revealing to their reader what side of the war they are on.
Every occult book promotes some form of sin and immorality, even when they disguise their dark teachings, and cover them up with some form of religiosity, self-denial or spirituality. Occultic literature claims divine revelation form some angel, alien or divine being. However their counterfeit teachings always appeal and try to seduce the sinful human nature.
Destructive Power of the Occult
The history of the occult is filled with individuals who have become obsessed with mystic or occult forces and whom eventually have had their lives destroyed by this type of belief system. Even great and brilliant men who began to practice the occult had their lives devastated. Leaving behind the evidence of their existence and nature to the world. There is overwhelming extra-biblical data and empirical confirmation documenting scriptural claims for the existence of a personal devil and demons. – Lawyer, Philosopher and Theologian Dr. John W.
