What is the New Age Movement?
Gods of The New Age
Before we get into what the New Age Movement is, it would be worth your while to watch this insightful video that provides deep insights into the roots of the New Age Religion – Hinduism. Eastern Mysticism is at the heart of all New Age practices.
If you are participating in Hindu practices such as Yoga, Meditation, Trances etc, please watch this video as it may open your eyes to the dark deception within the New Age Movement.

“For many false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect (of God). Behold, I have told you in advance”. (Matthew 24:24-25) Jesus speaking to his disciples …
By holding up the serpent’s original temptation to Adam and Eve to partake of the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3), the New Age Movement is seducing millions of people into accepting the false promises of personal godhood, unlimited power, and immortality through reincarnation. Despite cries of love, light and peace, and universal brotherhood, there is a really dark side of the New Age movement and it needs to be exposed for what it really is.
Due to it’s involvement of forbidden Scriptural practices such as divination, witchcraft, spiritism, astrology, necromancy and mysticism, the New Age represents a false religion of enormous proportions which opens the gate for Satan and his demons to unleash an end-times Pandora’s box of unrighteousness on the earth.
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that, in the latter times, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of demons.” (1 Timothy 4:1)
“‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.” (Revelation 18:2)
The roots of the new age movement go deep into every strata of society. In a tempestuous world and a society filled with millions of restless people who are thirsting for answers to life’s challenges and who seek spiritual fulfilment, the new age religion offers a huge array of tempting alternatives to the Christian faith.
Essentially, it is a Satan-controlled, modern day revival of occult-based philosophies and practices in both obvious and cleverly disguised forms. It is what the Bible describes as the end-time “plague of the spirit” that propagates the “powerful delusion that they should believe the lie.” The Bible warns of a great end-time delusion that will appear on the earth before Jesus Christ returns. This great delusion is sent by Satan to deceive the nations of the world to worship him as god. In so doing, the lives of many will be damned for all eternity because they have rejected the true God of the Bible and have instead received a lie.
The New Age is not New
The New Age is actually nothing new at all. It’s age-old, occult based temptations are constantly being repackaged in the glossy modernised guide of a “new improved” age-old spiritual deception. It has always been active throughout history via numerous and widespread Western occult traditions and Eastern mystical religions. The Bible describes this phenomenon as “Mystery Babylon”. Mystery Babylon is simply a false religious system that manifests a spirit that is anti-christ. It is vehemently opposed to the Bible, Christianity, the worship of the true God Jehovah, and His Son Jesus Christ. The Bible clearly states that there is only one way by which man can be saved and that Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth, and The Life; and that no one will see God the Father unless they come to God through Jesus Christ. (John 14:6).
Satan’s plan is to suggest that there are other paths to god and he offers a smorgasbord of spiritual options, each of which in turn lead to a false demonic entity who present themselves as angels of light and ambassadors of the kingdom of the TRUE God. This is the nature of the deception. People are fooled into thinking that what they are involved in is in fact “spiritual”. They are seduced by demons who perform various false “signs and wonders” until eventually, they gradually become exposed to the demonic anti-christ doctrines revealed through the dark side of the spirit world. The Bible confirms that there is indeed a spirit world which is divided into only two segments (1) God’s kingdom of Light (2) Satan’s kingdom of darkness and deception. There is no such thing as the “good side of the dark side”. All who indulge themselves in this way, contravene God’s laws The Bible contains numerous warnings that we are not to dabble in astrology, spiritism, occultism, mysticism, the worship of angels or any other “gospel” than that already revealed in the Bible.
The Aquarian Conspiracy
Marilyn Ferguson, author of the landmark New Age Manifesto The Aquarian Conspiracy: Personal and Social Transformation in the 1980’s, speaks of the magnitude of the forces in motion in the New Age movement.
“Broader than reform, deeper than revolution, this benign conspiracy for a new human agenda has triggered the most rapid cultural realignment in history. This great shuddering irrevocable shift over-taking us is not a new political, religious, philosophical system. It is a new mind – the ascending of a startling world view.”
Further elaborating on this “benign conspiracy”, Ferguson’s book states:
“This network – the Aquarian Conspiracy – has already enlisted the minds, hearts, and resources of some of our most advanced thinkers, including Novel laureate scientists, philosophers, statesmen. celebrities, and steadily growing numbers from every corner of American society.”
” … the network is working to create a different kind of society based on a vastly enlarged concept of human potential [and] … shows us how the technologies for expanding and transforming personal consciousness, once the secret of an elite, are now generating massive change in every cultural institution – medicine, politics, business. education, religions , and the family. Will our present turmoil lead to a worldwide breakdown of society – or to a breakthrough to the next step of human evolution? The answer may depend in large measure on the influence of the Aquarian Conspiracy.”
The report starts on page 20 and end on page 33
Ferguson’s statement “the ascending of a new world view” veils the deep Satanic deception behind this movement. Occult organisations such as Theosophy and Lucis Trust teach that Lucifer is the saviour of the world and the only true god. They claim that man does need salvation and is capable of attaining godhood through secret knowledge and occult spiritual practices. In short, the oldest lie of the occult is the concept of “the god within”; the demonic lie that we are gods or contain a spark of divinity that needs to be activated through mystical practices such as meditation and yoga.
The New Age makes no attempt to hide it’s real agenda which is to transform society and humanity.
This agenda represents the complete revolution of the very foundations of the entire world. In short, Satan is attempting a second Genesis – a recreation of all things as he has seen God do. He is mimicking the only true God and he will fail. The new age plan calls for the total restructuring of planetary civilisation into an enlightened One-World Federation in which national boundaries and sovereignty are secondary. “Planetery citizenship” in the “global village” is the new order of the day. This new world order will apparently offer it’s planetary citizens peace on earth and unprecedented opportunities for “actualising the human god-potential” Something of great significance is occurring, and it must be taken very seriously. The last revival of occultism played into the hands of Adolph Hitler. The victims of this deception number many millions. One can therefore only wonder where the current and far more pervasive renaissance of occultism will eventually lead? The Bible reveals that it will end in what is described as “the great tribulation”; a time of such chaos and terror on the earth such as we have never witnessed through all of history and never will again. In fact, it will be so terrible that God will have to intervene to prevent the total extermination of humanity.
It must be clearly stated that according to the Bible, this is exactly the same strategy that Satan used to deceive Adam and Eve in order to entice them to rebel against God. This rebellion against God that started in the Garden of Eden (genesis 3) has never stopped. Today Satan continues to defy God and to offer the same false claims of “spiritual enlightenment” through secret spiritual knowledge that apparently only he can offer. By contrast, the Bible hides nothing and clearly reveals that all men fall short of the glory of God, are spiritual beings who have been corrupted and tainted by sin, and need to be renewed spiritually. This is only possible through a process the Bible calls “being born again”. It is not a physical but a spiritual re-birth that is only possible through Jesus Christ and the power of God’s Holy Spirit. There is no other way by which man can be spiritually renewed or re-generated. Satan always creates a counterfeit of the original and the true as found in the Bible. God’s word is the source of absolute truth and Jesus said that all must come through Him in order to come to the knowledge of the true God – Jehovah. Jesus alone is The Way, The Truth, and The Life. There is no other name by which man can be saved!
