God has called us to come out of Babylon—the religious and political order that the devil is setting up in the world today. But God never said it would be easy. In fact, Jesus tells us that persecution is just a fact of the Christian life:
These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble. They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.
And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me. But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them (John 16:1-4 NKJV).
Christ's words are coming true today. Here are some frightening statements from all corners of the world that tell us what is to happen to God's remnant:
A common topic in the discussion of the new world order is population control. The New Age movement teaches that the future world is to have fewer inhabitants than we have now.
Creation Spiritualist Matthew Fox, for example, says that the New Age will have four billion occupants.i John Randolph Price, author of The Superbeings, plainly identifies Christians in this statement: "There are some groups who continue to cling to the absurd idea that man is a miserable sinner and worm of the dust." He then notifies us that "two and one-half billion people will be killed" (emphasis added).ii
R. Paulaseer Lawrie Muthukrishna, who supposedly was transfigured into Jesus in 1969, writes this:
A period of extreme tribulation and unprecedented misery is soon to cover the entire world...All events coming to light are pointing directly towards the end...Such wholesale destruction of the undesirable elements from the surface of the earth comes into effect at different places through different causes. It may be through storms and flood, through famine and diseases, through wars, through massacres or through heavenly calamities like volcanic upheavals...
Signs are evident that the destruction of the undesirable elements in the world has already commenced. There should be enormous bloodshed all over the world and the loss of life through various causes shall be so great that the world population shall be considerably reduced. The older order shall be changed and a new [order] shall be born. The new structure of the coming world shall stand on bones and ashes (emphasis added).iii
Ted Turner, founder of CNN, called Christianity a "religion for losers" and suggested that those who oppose abortion are "bozos."iv He also suggested that US citizens should not have more than two children, and eventually that “A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”v
Wired magazine says this: "The Georgia Guidestones may be the most enigmatic monument in the...
Prince Philip, former President of the World Wildlife Fund, said this:
In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.vi
Georgia Guidestones; the American version of Stonehenge—has an inscription of 10 guides, or commandments, for surviving the post-apocalyptic world. The first command is "Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature," and the second supports it: "Guide reproduction wisely..."vii
Population control is seen today as a necessary means of dealing with global hunger and caring for the Earth. Ironically, the world today produces enough food for ten times its population, but unequal distribution and the severe gluttony of the West keep poverty rampant in the rest of the world. Poverty is not the problem. Greed is the problem.
While lowering the population may be "green" and good for the planet, have we considered how this reduction will take place? Who will be chosen to remain on Earth? Who will be wiped out?
What happens to those who do not conform to the "tolerant" norm of global religious and political unity? As 1984 vice presidential candidate Barbara Marx Hubbard informs us, the consequences can be lethal:
Humanity will not be able to make the transition from Earth to universal life until the chaff has separated from the wheat...
No worldly peace can prevail until the self-centered members of the planetary body either change or die. That is the choice...they must surely die, or change...
This act is as horrible as killing a cancer cell. It must be done for the sake of the future of the whole...
There have always been defective seeds. In the past they were permitted to die a "natural death." We, the elders have been patiently waiting until the very last moment before the quantum transformation, to take action to cut out this corrupted and corrupting element in the body of humanity. It is like watching a cancer grow; something must be done before the whole body is destroyed (all emphases added).viii
Those who stand against the new world order become like a cancer cell that must either change or die? These threats are not dissimilar to papal statements. Pope John Paul II wrote this:
Whoever denies or places in doubt any truth that must be believed with divine and catholic faith, or repudiates the Christian faith as a whole, and does not come to his senses after having been legitimately warned, is to be punished as a heretic...whoever obstinately rejects a teaching that the Roman Pontiff or the College of Bishops, exercising the authentic Magisterium, have set forth to be held definitively, or who affirms what they have condemned as erroneous, and does not retract after having been legitimately warned, is to be punished with an appropriate penalty.ix
Pope Nicholas I wrote this to the king of Bulgaria:
I glorify you for having maintained your authority by putting to death those wandering sheep who refused to enter the fold.x

New Age leaders agree with these political and religious reforms. The demonic force Djwhal Khul, speaking through Alice Bailey, uses similar language:
A violent streptococcic germ and infection has menaced the life of humanity...makes its presence felt in infected areas in the body of humanity...
Another surgical operation may be necessary...to dissipate the infection and get rid of the fever...let us never forget that...when a [life] form proves inadequate, or too diseased, or too crippled for the expression of that purpose, it is...no disaster when that form has to go. Death is not a disaster to be feared; the work of the destroyer is not really cruel or undesirable... Therefore, there is much destruction permitted by the Custodians of the Plan and much evil turned into good (all emphases added).xi
Self-proclaimed psychic Ruth Montgomery writes that “souls...will have passed on into spirit to rethink their attitudes" (emphasis added).xii
A former New Ager, Randall Baer, states that those who refuse the mark of the Beast will be targeted “for extermination in what would euphemistically be called re-education centers of love and relocation, that is, death camps in disguise” (emphasis added).xiii

Dr. Mortimer Adler, former chairman of the Board of Editors of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc., director of the Institute for Philosophical Research in Chicago, chairman of the Paideia Project, and honorary trustee of the Aspen Institute, had strong views on this issue:
Simply stated, Adler argues that we will not be able to attain world peace until we attain cultural unity. But, Adler argues that there is only one obstacle to this unity—Christianity...
Adler’s point is simple—Christianity claims "supernatural knowledge" and "divine revelation" that is divisive and not open to rational debate, and should not be tolerated (all emphases added).xiv
The Christian churches must also kill out all separativeness and learn to cooperate with all the other faiths...those Scriptures are of equal value and beauty as the New Testament.xv
Occultist Dr. Christopher Hyatt refers to Christian fundamentalists as “The Shadow emerging in Society.” Author Texe Marrs describes Hyatt's position this way:
He predicted, however, that the fundamentalist forces will be overcome. There will be a "changing of the guards." Hyatt went on to reveal just how this "changing of the guards" will take place. "I see," he stressed, "that the earth still requires some blood before it is ready to move into new and different areas...I see [the New Age] has required...a lot of blood, disruption, chaos, and pain for a mass change to occur."xvi
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the man who brought the occultic practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM) to the West, has said this in reference to those who won’t practice TM:
There has not and there will not be a place for the unfit. The fit will lead, and if the unfit are not coming along there is no place for them...In the Age of Enlightenment there is no place for ignorant people.xvii
To Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and other New Age thinkers, the "unfit" and "ignorant" are those who refuse to join their movement of global religious unity under the New Age Christ
These horrific statements are beyond scary. But they do tell us that we must make a decision between the kingdom of darkness and the Kingdom of God. And if we choose God's Kingdom, we can have peace, knowing He is in control.
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world (John 16:33).
