For the next several days, I desire to talk about the infiltration of New Age doctrines and practices in churches in America.
I have personally witnessed over 35+ years the gradual acceptance of New Age theology in a growing number of US churches.
There’s something happening in America that I am seeing more clearly in recent years. The USA is morphing into a Babylonian empire. It is quite troubling to behold. A spirit of madness is taking over a sizeable portion of the population. The group insanity is fueled by the population’s rejection of God and His commandments. A sizeable portion of the population has consciously chosen to believe a lie. Consequently, God sent them a delusion. When a nation becomes so perverse that God sends them a delusion, it is impossible for them to ever see and understand the truth. It is a sure sign of judgment.
As America becomes more Babylonian, so too is its religious system. When the Jews turned to idolatry, God judged Israel when they repeatedly over many years rejected divine warnings issued by prophets to repent and return to the Lord’s commandments.
God used Nebuchadnezzar in to conquer Jerusalem. The Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem in three stages, beginning in 605 BC and ending in 586 BC. Judah’s King Jehoiakim was forced to pay tribute – taxes – to King Nebuchadnezzar. Jehoiakim paid the taxes for the first three years, but stopped the tribute money in the fourth year.
Three years later, Nebuchadnezzar’s army invaded Judah again. King Jehoiakim died. Several years later, Jehoiakim’s successor was hauled off to Babylon. And a few more years later, Nebuchadnezzar put the squeeze on Judah and started deporting Jews to Babylon as slaves. The Jews remained in Babylon until Persia’s King Cyrus the Great conquered Babylon. Although they were officially under Nebuchadnezzar’s captivity for 70 years, the Jews’ return to Judah was gradual over many years.
During the Babylonian captivity, the prophet Ezekiel rebuked the Jews for their disloyalty to God and their infatuation with Babylon.
You can read it in Ezekiel 23. Let’s start with verse 11.
11 “Her sister Oholibah saw this, and she became more corrupt than her sister in her lust and in her whoring, which was worse than that of her sister.
12 She lusted after the Assyrians, governors and commanders, warriors clothed in full armor, horsemen riding on horses, all of them desirable young men.
13 And I saw that she was defiled; they both took the same way.
14 But she carried her whoring further. She saw men portrayed on the wall, the images of the Chaldeans portrayed in vermilion,
15 wearing belts on their waists, with flowing turbans on their heads, all of them having the appearance of officers, a likeness of Babylonians whose native land was Chaldea.
16 When she saw them, she lusted after them and sent messengers to them in Chaldea.
17 And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoring lust. And after she was defiled by them, she turned from them in disgust.
18 When she carried on her whoring so openly and flaunted her nakedness, I turned in disgust from her, as I had turned in disgust from her sister.
19 Yet she increased her whoring, remembering the days of her youth, when she played the whore in the land of Egypt.
When the Jews finally departed Babylon, they carried back to Judah more than their clothes and stuff. They took home a new religion – Judaism. I know this is difficult for many Christians to grasp, but God did not inspire the formation of Judaism. Judaism as we know it today did not exist when the Jews were taken into Babylonian captivity.
It was while in Babylon that the Jews developed a new religious system that was based on rabbinical interpretations of the Torah. The Talmud was conceived and birthed in Babylon. Indeed, Jews today refer to it as the Babylonian Talmud. Modern day Jews don’t read the Word of God. They read what the Babylonian rabbis said about the Torah.
There was something else the Jews discovered in Babylon and took home to Jerusalem: It was Babylonian secret knowledge acquired from the Chaldeans. It forms the core of modern-day Jewish mysticism known as Kabbalah. Kabbalah is the hidden wisdom of Jewish rabbis that was derived from ancient secret knowledge. The rabbinical hidden wisdom was combined with Babylonian secret knowledge into a Jewish theology that forms the core of modern Judaism.
The ancient Babylonians were an advanced culture known for their knowledge of science and advanced mathematics including geometry and trigonometry. The Babylonians also worshipped the planet Jupiter.
I’m sorry to shock all the hard-core Christian Zionists who are watching Morning Manna today, but modern-day Israel’s Star of David flag has nothing to do with King David and ancient Israel. The Star of David flag was inspired by Kabbalah. The star in Israel’s flag is the same star god condemned by God in Amos 5:26.
But you carried a tabernacle for your Moloch, and the image of your idols, the star of your god, which you made to yourselves.
In the New Testament, you can read about again about Israel’s star god. It is found in Acts 7:43.
And you took unto you the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which you made to adore them. And I will carry you away beyond Babylon.
I’ll be very direct with you: If you have a flag, pendant, poster, or any other item with the Israeli Star of David image, you have an occult image in your home, church, office, or on your body. Get rid of it.
How is this linked to my subject of New Ageism in American churches?
The Jews discovered ancient secret knowledge in Babylon. They developed a new Jewish theology while in Babylon. It is the rabbinical Talmud. With the Talmud comes Kabbalah, which is Jewish witchcraft.
As the Kabbalists have gained more influence in America over the past 50 years, America has become more Babylonian. This explains why America is morphing into Babylon. Is America end time Babylon? Are we fulfilling Bible prophecy? Perhaps. If America is, indeed, end time Babylon, there isn’t anything we can do to stop it. If America is not end time Babylon, we can stop the Babylonian process and reverse it by returning to bedrock doctrine of the Christian church. The preaching of truth will chase away darkness and apostasy.
New Ageism, witchcraft, the black arts, sorcery, the occult, paganism – whatever name you want to call it – has been in the world for thousands of years.
It was present in Old Testament times. Egypt’s Pharaoh had magicians, wise men, astrologers, soothsayers, and sorcerers who used secret arts to perform astounding feats, predict the future, and to interpret dreams.
In Isaiah 47:13, God told the Israelites to ask their astrologers, stargazers, and monthly prognosticators to stand up and save them from the judgment that would come upon them because of their idolatry and rebellion.
Today, we see and hear New Age terms and practices in many churches. People are adapting to it and accepting its presence. We should be outraged and rise up against it. I want to give you some buzzwords that you should be on alert for their presence in churches in your community – or present in ministries on TV and radio. This is not an exhaustive list, but merely a beginning of the terms and phrases being used by many church leaders.
