The supermen are coming
The idea of super heroes makes men into little gods. This fantasy has always been with us, even from ancient times. To manipulate nature and forces by will. The quest for supernatural power has been an innate desire ever since Satan offered it in the garden to Eve - to be like God, to create, to do wonders; all for good of course.
Alice Bailey wrote ‘If prehistoric man, little more than an animal, has grown into the genius, what unfoldment is not possible as more and more of innate divinity makes its presence felt? The superman is with us. What will the world manifest when all mankind is tending towards a concrete manifestation of superhuman powers?
Man's consciousness is being released in varying directions and dimensions. It is expanding into the world of spiritual realities and beginning to embrace the fifth or spiritual kingdom, the kingdom of souls. It is interpenetrating, through scientific research, the world of  super-human endeavour, and investigating the many aspects of the Form of God, and of the forms that constitute the Form. (A Treatise on White Magic under Rule twelve)
“Yet the ideal of a superman is a true ideal, and it needs upholding before the world. Temporarily, it has been forgotten that the superman is the goal for all, and that Asiatic, Nordics, Jews, Gentiles, Americans, and Anglo-Saxons, the Africans and all other world races are children of the same Father, fed from the same source of Life, and saved by the same divine Christ principle. Therefore the superman has been and will be found emerging out of the ranks of every people, to find his way into the ranks of the Spiritual Hierarchy and the New Group of World Servers.” (Esoteric Psychology I - Section Two - I. The Seven Creative Builders, the Seven Rays)
The new age has invisible Masters who are considered to be a race of supermen leading the world into the dawn of the New Age. They claim their representatives have now gone out in bodily form to help humans achieve higher consciousness by a quantum leap.
This does not mean they incarnated as some may interpret but actually inhabit bodies as the Bible teaches demons do. In their teaching Jesus is reduced to just one of the many ascended masters working from the astral realm to influence our world.
The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche wrote of the Übermensch (superman) in Der Antichrist Nietzsche wrote “Let us see ourselves for what we are. Nietzsche’s supermen tapped into a supernatural force that raises them above the ordinary man in “The Will to Power”, he was speaking of the Vril force and spoke of “the herd,” meaning the ordinary people and the nature of the supermen they are justified in lying to the herd in order to remain free and independent of the “herd mentality.”
A body of supermen (Helena Blavatsky “the Secret Doctrine”), have existed for ages. Adepts, initiates into the Brotherhood of the Great White Lodge and light. The Great Brotherhood decided that the time had come for a fresh and fuller revelation, and selected Madam Blavatsky for their first disciple. Through her and Col. Olcott they founded the Theosophical Society. They are known to Theosophists as 'the Masters.'
The 1933 origins of the Third Reich says the Thules believed they descended from the Aryans, a race of Causcasian "supermen without admixture" who lived nearly a million years ago. According to their mythology their ancestors lost their powers when they mated with "subhumans," a life form designated by the Thules as none other than the Jews. Adolf Hitler before his clarification of his mission attended the Thule Society meetings (1918) as he was introduced to the Occult.
Dave Hunt commented: “No less obsessed with the occult was Heinrich Himmler, head of the infamous SS, which was not only a military organization but a secret order of black magicians. Himmler reportedly spent more money on occult investigations and genealogical research, tracing the mystical origins of Aryan supermen back to India and Tibet, than the Americans spent upon the initial development of the atomic bomb. The ultimate mission of the SS was to usher in a New Age, a New World inhabited by a New Man. (the Sorcerers New Apprentice)
Supermen from the Occult, to New age to the Church
Even the Urantia book speaks of Supermen. Headquarters of the Planetary Prince on Urantia [66:4.1]... those tribes near the Mesopotamian headquarters were tremendously influenced by the teachings and conduct of the one hundred new sojourners on Urantia. And much of your subsequent mythology grew out of the garbled legends of these early days when these members of the Prince's staff were repersonalized on Urantia as supermen."
[67:4.3] The presence of these extraordinary supermen and superwomen, stranded by rebellion and presently mating with the sons and daughters of earth, easily gave origin to those traditional stories of the gods coming down to mate with mortals."
Through his "Revelation Knowledge," E.W.Kenyon hoped to create a master-race of Christians - "supermen," who are no longer bound by "Sense Knowledge 'or by demons, disease and poverty. There will be no more struggle for faith, for all things are outs. There will be no more praying for power, for He is in us.... In the presence of these tremendous realities, we arise and take our place. We go out and live as supermen indwelt by God. This hope is a central thrust of all Kenyon's writings.
D.R. McConnell points out "When these truths really gain the ascendancy in us, they will make us spiritual supermen, masters of demons and disease. It will be the end of weakness and failure." (A Different Gospel, P. 21, D.R. McConnell, 1988.)
Now that we have an overall historical background of this concept, we come to today.
Gnostic promoter Rick Joyner teaches "What is about to come upon the earth is not just a revival, or another awakening; it is a veritable revolution. The vision was given in order to begin to awaken those who are destined to radically change the course, and even the very definition of Christianity. ...the Lord will raise up a great company of prophets, teachers, pastors and apostles that will be of the spirit of Phinehas ... this "ministry of Phinehas" will save congregations, and at times, even whole nations. …Nations will tremble at the mention of their name..."(THE HARVEST, Rick Joyner)
In the 70's those in the Latter Rain held the same concepts Ern Baxter taught "God's people are going to start to exercise rule, and they're going to take dominion over the Power of Satan. They intended on bringing the diabolical princes down. The dark powers that hover over the Parliament buildings of the nations are going to be paralyzed by the corporate prayer of an authoritative community. .. chase the devil off the face of God's earth, and we will bring about God's purposes and Gods reign ".(National Men's Shepherds Conference, Kansas City, Missouri, September, 1975).
Consider the new man concept of the Occult New age; which has being Christianized as a miracle working army for the church. Once called Joel’s army by the Vineyard it can come in various packaging by the spiritual strategists who have learned the mistakes of their predecessors. The word faith segment of the church led by Copeland, Dollar, Joyce Meyer believe themselves to be little gods as they circumvent the Bibles clarity of there being only one true God and all others are false.
"Even many in the great body of Full Gospel people do not know that the new birth is a real incarnation…Jesus was first divine, and then He was human. So He was in the flesh a divine-human being. I was first human, and so were you, but I was born of God, and so I became a human-divine being!” (Copeland Kenneth The Force of Righteousness, Fort Worth, Texas, K. Copeland Ministries, 1984, p. 12.)
Jesus was always both divine and human, otherwise there is no incarnation. This is proof Copeland does not only not hold to the core doctrines of the faith but has no idea what he's talking about. They are even further off than the Mormons who one day hope to be a god when they claim they already are.
One can certainly make Jesus into a superhero - he can create, make things appear out of thin air, disappear, know what people are thinking. No wonder people want to literally be Jesus. Some purposely delude themselves or let another spirit delude them into thinking they can be just like Him before the resurrection.
There are myriads of those who think they are Jesus like Alan John Miller in Australia has memories of his past as Jesus and convinced others of his delusion.http://www.aj-miller.com/ http://wn.com/couple_claim_they_are_jesus_christ_and_mary_magdalene_alan_john_miller_&_mary_suzanne_luck
David Shayler was a former MI5 agent and whistleblower who, in the summer of 2007, proclaimed himself to be the Messiah. Posting a series of videos onYouTube claiming to be Jesus, although he has not built up any noticeable following since his claims
Lightning Deng (2014), a woman whom the Chinese Eastern Lightning cult believe to be the reincarnation of Christ. A millennial Chinese Christian sect. The official name for the group is the Church of Almighty God.
Sergey Anatolyevitch Torop known by his followers as Vissarion is a Russian mystic who at 29 in 1990, claims that he had a revelation that he was the reincarnation of Christ. Vissarion claims to be a reincarnation of Jesus. His teachings include reincarnation, veganism, aliens the impending end of the world (or at least of civilization as we know it), and the belief of aliens.
He founded and heads the Church of the Last Testament in the Siberian Taiga in the southern Siberia Kuraginsk district of Krasnoyarsk territory. He has around 4,000 followers (called Vissarionites) living in the settlement and around 10,000 followers worldwide.
As Jesus forewarned many will claim to be Christ and this crosses over from the New Age to those who claim this in the church.
It often begins subtly, like breadcrumbs to be picked up off the ground instead of from the book of truth, the Bible.
“How often have you said—"I AM poor, I AM sick, I AM ignorant, I AM weak"—and thus fastened these evils upon yourself? You acknowledged a lack of something. What can you build with minus quantities? Only emptiness, void. Reverse all that. Whenever you say "I AM", whenever you thus call upon the God in You, make it something you WANT. "I AM rich. I AM powerful. I AM well and whole and strong. I AM happy. I AM perfect in every way." Make an I AM Scrap Book, with your picture on the first page, then pictures of supermen or genii or whatever your idea of power may be scattered throughout the pages of the book. Put in it pictures of all the things you would like to be and do. And fill it with such affirmations as these: "The Spirit of Prosperity fills my mind and overflows into my affairs. God is my perfect will; through me it is done." "There is only one Presence and one Power in my life—God, the Good Omnipotent. God is my inexhaustible source of abundant supply. The riches of the Spirit now fill my mind and affairs. I think prosperity. I talk prosperity, and I know that prosperity and success are mine." God gave man power and dominion over all that is below him. "I said—Ye are Gods, and all of you Sons of the Most High." "As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the Sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." Will YOU receive Him? Will you believe in and accept the power He offers you? "God is able to do abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the Power that worketh in us." Will you accept His Divine Sonship? Will you BE the God-man you were intended to be?” ("The Law of the Higher Potential" by Robert Collier)
Here is the basis of the word faith beliefs that is grounded in Occultism. This is where one can actually become a superman and not just read about fantasy adventure stories found in a comic book.
At the forefront of the pursuit of power inside the church today is Bill Johnson who calmly distributes multifaceted lies by twisting the scripture into infinitesimal shreds for the young to eat up and later choke on.
God gave every believer the power to heal as Jesus did”
(Johnson, “You’ve Got the Power,” Charisma Online , March 2012). If this
were so then there would be no difference between the apostles and all
believers. The fact is Paul aske "Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all
work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues ? Do
all interpret? ( 1 Cor 12:29-31) The answer is no of course.
Bill Johnson says yesterday’s anointing is like yesterday’s manna.” So the Holy Spirit is not pure according to him. Well one thing leads to another until the cup of lies is full. This means one will be unsatisfied with the Holy Spirit they were given at their new birth and look for another anointing. Never mind that the anointing is to be living in you (permanently), that’s inconsequential to his purposes of convincing people to look for something more.
IHOP is about building a prayer army to conquer and much preparation is by the word “forerunner” used for nearly everything possible. As God will be restoring the apostles to the church of which they play a large part in. Bickel teaches of a conquering church he tells us " the church causes the great tribulation. it is up to the church to “usher in” the Second Coming of Jesus. Jesus is not coming until the Body of Christ cries out "Come Lord Jesus" which does put it at the end of the tribulation for the simple fact that Jesus ends the tribulation by his coming. so the church goes through the whole of the tribulation which then contradicts his teaching of a conquering church.
Both men advocate unbiblical and extrabiblical revelation. Damage control will begin to rise from people like Mike Bickle and Johnson and so many others like them who distribute a different Christianity, thinking they have improved on it.
They have an inclination of the mystical so this is their worldview. Some of these false teachers are like some crazy alchemist scientist inventing new interpretations. Unfortunately the Christians never chase them out of town, they instead say, “tell us more.” To estimate whose crazier would be a hard distinction to make as the followers of these cult leaders grow. We have many who continue to speak of the great revival where everyone will become miracle workers. Here we are 20 years after Toronto first burned into the church and the smell still lingers. They ignore that the greatest revival will be in the Tribulation period and scripture tells us people will lose their lives for believing (Rev.7). Why do they not see this? Because they want it now. They pursue power instead of a relationship to the one who has all power and surrender unto Him. The warning of mt.7:21 does come into focus in this scenario and will be final fruit they have yielded. One must have surrender as part of their repentance to have Jesus master their life.
We have cult like pastors teaching mysticism and Gnosticism from the pulpit and people can’t tell the difference. It’s not because they do not have the tools available but because they are made deliriously happy by the experiences they have at church. They don’t have a serious bone in their body and they want those who challenge them to lighten up or go away. In reality these are Hollow men and women that have no soul, ready to be blown every which way the wind blows, ready to float away on the next vision or miracle they hear or see.
So they respond that you are attacking Christians, the body of Christ. No, we are pointing out doctrinal criminals in the body of Christ, false teachers that are taking them to destruction. we are speaking for the weak, the naive and the deceived.
Yet there are those few who do respond and are thankful that they were stopped to pause and see the forest from the trees. This is where we are at today and it is about to get whole lot worse. So if you could not make the distinctions from the deception already taken place it will be even more difficult as it deepens. Because everything is soon to converge as it reaches the zenith.
