NOTES TAKEN FROM SERMONS BY PASTOR R. BRUCE MILLER
Satan’s Master Plan 3/22/22
Jude tells us to “contend for the faith first delivered
We are not to be ignorant concerning Satan’s devices.
deceitful workers, false teachings, false Christs in the last days
Learn how we are to stand in these last days.
Lay a foundation – the new age world religion
exposing plots, deceptions
subtle but profound in the working
It is the spirit of the anti christ
I John 2:18 it is the last time the man of sin will be revealed, spirit of AntiChrist doctrines
seeks to remove Christ and substitute another gospel!
1John 4:1 beloved. believe not every spirit
the spirit of the Lord lets us know how we are to stand
Galatians – departing, substituting
begun in simplicity of salvation but drawn to another gospel!
intellect, scientific things of the world
the challenge to the saints to hold fast to the standard of the truth
Galatians 1:6 I marvel at this, being deceived another gospel
there are many new translations of the Bible now
2Timothy preach the word…be instant in season and out of season…they will not endure sound doctrine
people are fulfilling fleshly desires
*Galatians 1:7 not another, some will if any man pfreach any other gospel, let him be accursed
have understanding by the Holy Spirit and the written word
*matt 16 who do men say that I the son of man am?
flesh and blood did not reveal this to you
Many depend on man’s wisdom to give understanding of who Jesus is!
but if any man have not the spirit of God
and natural man receives not…except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God…
eye hath not seen, ear hat not heard
The way of the Lord is simple.
“Learn of me.” Knowledge of God is not complicated if you have a hunger for the right things.
If we receive another spirit, another Jesus, another gospel
false apostles, no marvel
an angel of light, posing as a minister of righteousness;
the devil deceived Eve with a lie – you shall be your own God
but you decide. focus on yourself
you are God’s creation, power against wonders later
than relationship with the Lord
Paul identified false apostles, etc.
no relationship, foundation of the doctrines of Christ
Deception in this last day
love of many waxes cold
A survival mindset
wars and rumors of wars, pandemics, sickness and disease
Global, not nationwide. Affecting all nations
Culture and social status is meaningless
Men are looking for a global solution
They are getting ready for the God of this world
facilitating a global religion, economic system
Master plan of the enemy in order of process a long time.
Increase of knowledge:
no limit to information
computers in our pockets
We have access to information - artificial intelligence, technological advances
The number of man:
The belief that man is the answer eliminates focus
Men can solve this problem without God,
The bible is not legitimate
drawn to other sources
But the Bible is God-breathed
There is a famine for the Word
filled with ungodly ways outside of the truth
We have been in the last days for the least 2,000 years
The signs are coming to fruition now.
The New Age Movement teaches that there are many paths to God
They teach a universal open-armed religion
in which only those who believe in a personal god are excluded
Jesus said, I am the way
There is no other name under heaven by which “man must be saved
most doctrine is dogmatic
glorification of man, teaching that man is supreme and that man can evolve into godship
holding to Satan’s promise, “you shall be as a God”
Mormonism, secular humanistic teachings, professionals – a high religion more attuned to people of intellect
man is an evolving God and the greatest love of all is “self-love”
Nothing New under the sun – the same spirit of lust, lasciviousness’, pleasing self
Jesus’ sacrifice is meaningless
like in the 1960s and 70’s peace and love is the mantra
Escape from authority and standards
No sin and evil, no judgement
A false premise
New Age teaches that man is inherently good.
Galatians says it is another Christ, a misrepresentation of who God is.
It teaches that God is an essence, an energy force and that there is no way to have a personal relationship with Him
They teach that we are all God and He is an energy
But we know that God is not part of His creation! He will burn it up in the end.
A new heaven and a new earth. (Rev, 21)
mother Earth, worshipping stars, spiritism, zodiac, horoscopes, etc.
Astrology the interpretation of assigned influence the stars have on human character
guided by stars, planetary movements, etc.
Babylonians sought wisdom through these practices
Beware of these mindsets, drawing our young people these are prevalent and are on the increase, keeping them away from the truth
New Age Re: Christ:
Buddha, etc. are Christ.
Messengers are sent to help us develop into Christ -likeness
New Agers believe there is one to come that will usher in the New Age.
Angels are called spirit guides, but they are demons except a man repent, confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus
New Agers believe “born again” means to let go and allow your “inner guide/inner self” to lead you.
But God hates pride because he says “humble yourself under the hand of God
Hinduism – Khundalini – even in the charismatic church
serpent power – they believe this gives instant rebirth by a flash of light
rebirth conveys Christ consciousness’
They believe the second coming when new age believers receive Christ consciousness and that their messiah come and rule in the earth.
Hell and Judgement:
“How can he send his children to hell?”
God does not send people to hell, he gives them a choice.
The Agenda has been publicly written
Harlot Babylon in Revelation 17
contend for the faith
There will be a great falling away before the revealing of the anti christ.
It is a subtle agenda
The Plan – 13 points in the New Age Mission statement. (from Secrets of the New Age , Texe Marrs 1987 )
1) establish one religion for population control, et. one world social order
2) revival of idolatrous ancient Babylon
same sex marriage, cultism, psychics will be the norm, necromancy, etc.
*God left strong warning in Deuteronomy 18 as the Hebrews were coming out of Egypt. They were not to involve themselves in these activities. (normalization of these cult practices)
3) Anti-Christ come in the flesh to lead the new world order
4) Spiritism – ie:avatars - they believe they help man inaugurate new age and pave the way for new age man-God to unite man as The Great World Teacher
5) world peace, love and unity are rallying cries – another popular them, the greatest love is to love yourself
6) taught in every sphere of society around the globe. education, government, etc.
7) spread the apostacy that Jesus is not God or Christ
8) all are to become parts of the new Age Religion - ecumenical movement – co-exist as equal
9) Christian principles to be discredited
10) children spiritually seduced for the New Age dogma. The evolution theory equal or above the truth of God’s word, gender issues part of the equation
11) flattery to entice the worldaccomplishments of man exalted – man has the answers to problems
12) science and religion become one, man’s accomplishments, glorifies man as God– heroes, superheroes! superhuman abilities
They see man as divine God (but God says He should get all the glory)
13) Christians who resist the plan should be dealt with, maybe exterminated and the world purified
Persecution is coming! let not your heart be troubled. While we are here, stand! Martyrdom: many are willingly laying down their lives now! Paul said he fought a good fight and kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7-8 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Be encouraged, aware of subtle, enticing practices that draw men away and dishonor God.
Deception is strong bait disguised as truth.
Continue in the faith.
Jesus has thoughts of peace.
Our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
Be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of God.
We are privileged/commanded to go into all the world with the gospel.
The message for the world: Salvation is found in none other than Jesus Christ.
Bow to Jesus now while you have a choice.
Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.
Hold fast, study to show yourself approved unto God!
