We see mystical/occult meditative practices (contemplative prayer) being promoted heavily by many proponents of the Emerging Church. There are other ties being formed between the New Age movement and the Emergent Church movement, such as the 'dialogue' between Brian McLaren and leaders of the NAM: Dialoguing Among the Devil's Disciples?; Leonard Sweet likewise refers to many New Age Leaders as "Leaders of Light" and Ken Blanchard who is heading the Lead Like Jesus conferences as a colleague and fellow of Rick Warren routinely promoting and endorsing New Age books and authors. McLaren, Sweet and Blanchard are all Emergent in their perspective and practice.

New Age dogma has long held the belief and even worship on some levels of the 'Celestial Brotherhood' a.k.a. 'the Star People' a.k.a. Extraterrestrial Biological Entities (E.B.E.s). We have covered this bizarre phenomena before on The RED PILL Consortium in a series (type "ETs: Extraterrestrial Terrorists?" in the search engine on this blog to retrieve these articles) and now we are addressing this once again from another source.
Before we get into that however, I would like to posit a question: Since the Emergent Church Movement is making alliances with the New Age movement (and in some ways is in fact, derivative of the N.A.M., just wearing 'evangelical clothes'; EMC is also connecting with the N.A.R. movement - New Apostolic Reformation) will Emergent leaders come around to adulating 'Space Brothers' the same way as their New Age counterparts? It seems likely as all of these movements are merging together and are in fact, deception from the devil, readily proveable by Scripture.
Particularly, it seems, since more Americans believe in ET's than in Jesus Christ! This stands to reason since a belief in alien civilizations which is supposedly hundreds of thousands if not millions of years more advanced in their technology than we mere humans, and evolution is being taught today as fact* while the Bible is allocated to fiction (a co-worker of mine visited a public library recently and was dismayed to find the Bible in the FICTION section!)!
* For more on the connection between evolutionary theory and alien intelligences see the "Alien Intrusion" articles (2 total) in The RED PILL Consortium based on Gary Bate's excellent book by the same name.
Alien entities and the countless numbers of UFO sightings as well as abductions (which account for about 5-6% of our total population here in the United States) are building to a kind of cresendo after hundreds, even thousands of years of events going back to the Babylonian Empire, the Roman Empire, the days of Christopher Columbus and the lore of Native American Indians, particularly the Hopi and into our current episodes of sightings (much of which is fake, but a certain percentage seems legitimate). Satan is obviously busy at work, developing this long-term perditious project to be employed in these last days, in order to present a deception of grand proportions!
Part of this deception will no doubt be incorporating fully the occult and esoteric practices into the mainstream of global society and call it 'Christian', complete with a belief in Alien ET's being spiritual sources for truth and guidance as well as inspiration as these entities are being channeled to communicate with us Earthlings. So let's turn this over to Michael Snyder and his article on The TRUTH Wins web site.
More Americans Believe Aliens Have Visited Earth Than Believe That Jesus Is The Son Of God
"According to a National Geographic survey, 77 percent of all Americans “believe there are signs that aliens have visited Earth”, and according to a recent Harris poll only 68 percent of all Americans believe that Jesus is God or the Son of God. That means that the number of Americans that believe that UFOs have visited us is now greater than the number of Americans that believe what the Bible has to say about Jesus Christ. With each passing year, the frequency of UFO sightings seems to keep increasing, as does the number of movies, television shows and video games featuring aliens and extraterrestrial life.
It is almost as if the population of the planet is being primed for something. Could this phenomenon be the “strong delusion” of the last days that is talked about in the Bible? And if there are beings out there that are not human, what is it that they want? Could it be that they have an extremely insidious agenda?
"When it comes to UFOs, it is important to be skeptical. These days it is very easy to fake just about anything on video, and there have definitely been a lot of fraudulent reports over the years.
"But virtually all of those that have studied this phenomenon for many years come away convinced that something very unusual is clearly happening in our skies. Every year there are hundreds upon hundreds of very credible reports of very strange unidentified flying objects that seem to have no natural explanation. For example, one of the most respected newspapers in the UK just reported on a UFO that nearly collided with an A320 Airbus just a few days ago…
It was certainly a close encounter, but with precisely what remains a mystery.An airline pilot has reported a near miss in which a “rugby ball”-shaped UFO passed within a few feet of his passenger jet while flying near Heathrow Airport.
The captain told the aviation authorities who have investigated the incident that he was certain the object was going to crash into his aircraft and ducked as it headed towards him.The investigation has been unable to establish any earthly identity for the mysterious craft, which left the aircrew with no time to take evasive action.
The incident occurred while the A320 Airbus was cruising at 34,000ft, around 20 miles west of the airport, over the Berkshire countryside.
"And there are organizations out there that spend a tremendous amount of time and energy tracking these sightings. For example, an organization known as “MUFON” received more than 500 UFO reports a month last year…
"MUFON is the largest civilian UFO investigation organization in the US, and probably the world. They have investigators in every state, and representatives throughout the world. Clifford Clift, MUFON’s director in early 2012, told Lee Speigel of the Huffington Post in January of that year that MUFON received over 6000 UFO reports in 2011. He added that they had already received hundreds in the first few days of 2012 and were expecting a big year.
"In 2013 MUFON received 7646 reports worldwide. 6457 of those were in the United States."And it isn’t just nuts and kooks that believe this stuff. In fact, top military and political officials all over the world are starting to come forward with what they know about this phenomenon. During a recent television interview, Paul Hellyer, the former Defense Minister of Canada, was asked why he believes that UFOs are real. The following was his response…
Because I know that they are. As a matter of fact, they’ve been visiting our planet for thousands of years and one of the cases that would interest you most if you give me two or three minutes to answer is that during the Cold War, 1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying south from Russia across Europe, and Supreme Allied Command was very concerned and about ready to press the 'Panic' button when they turned around and went back over the North Pole.
They decided to do an investigation which lasted 3 years and concluded that, with absolute certainty, four species – at least – have been visiting this planet for thousands of years. We have a long history of UFOs and of course there has been a lot more activity in the last few decades, since we invented the atomic bomb and they are very concerned about that; the fact that we might use it again, and because the Cosmos is a unity and it affects not just us but other people in the Cosmos, they are very much afraid that we might be stupid enough to start using atomic weapons again, and this would be very bad for us and for them as well.
"So is he telling the truth?
That is up for you to decide. Posted here is a YouTube video that contains some of the best UFO videos from 2013. Watch the footage for yourself and come to your own conclusions…
"Most people assume that if UFOs and aliens are real, that they must be here to help us.
"But what if that is not actually the case at all?
"Temple University Professor Dr. David Jacobs has been studying these things for more than 30 years. At first, he also assumed that the aliens had good intentions and were going to be helpful to humanity. But as his studies progressed, he eventually developed 'a tremendous sense of concern about the future'…
"But I must say that now that I’ve learned as much as I have learned, and I think I’ve learned an awful lot, I am very, very unsettled and upset by what I see. I don’t like what I see. I wish I didn’t see this. I wish I hadn’t uncovered this. I despair of it. It’s thrown me into a tremendous sense of concern about the future and unease. I just don’t like it very much. I wish I did. I don’t want to be this way. I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news. I could not have ever imagined that I would come to this position. What I’m seeing now, what I’ve found with the phenomenon, I could never have imagined."
In particular, Dr. Jacobs is deeply concerned about the insidious agenda behind the 'alien abduction' phenomenon…
Abductions, you have to remember, are a means to an end. They’re abducting people for a purpose, for a reason. The physical act of abducting people, which is the abduction phenomenon, really is only part of the program. So what I’ve done is kind of divided it into component parts and fleshed it out a lot more. So what we have here is an abduction program, a breeding program, which accounts for all the reproductive activity that we see, and a hybridization program, which is why people see hybrids all the time–as babies, as toddlers, as adolescents, and then as adults.
And then, finally, I think all this is leading to an integration program in which ultimately these hybrids, who look very human, will be integrating into this society. And who will eventually, I assume, be in control here because they do have superior technology and superior physiological abilities that we do not have. We would therefore be sort of second-class citizens, I think.
"To many Americans, what Dr. Jacobs is talking about sounds absolutely crazy.
"But it is important to remember that Dr. Jacobs is not just some nutjob with a blog. He is a respected professor at a major university that has been intensely studying this stuff for more than 30 years. So what do you believe?
"Do you believe that UFOs and aliens are real? If so, who do you believe that they are and where do you believe they are from?
"Could this actually be the “strong delusion” of the last days?"

The New Age is really the Old Lie, and how wide and deep this Lie goes, I'm sure even we are not certain of, as this "strong delusion" hasn't fully been realized yet . . . yet! I do believe however, that much of this Lie is being brought to the fore, and we as Christians, lovers of the Truth need to stand against these deceptions and prove from Scripture that it's all part of Satan's diabolical plot to deceive humanity and thus damn their chances of ever finding the Truth of the Gospel and God's Holy Revelation, the Bible. At the same time, it is important not to become myopic on this subject to the exclusion of greater subjects and missions that the LORD explictly commanded His church to engage in: preaching the Gospel and making disciples.
