A PLANNED DECEPTION
"Their script is now written, subject only to last minute editing and stage-directions. The stage itself, albeit as yet indarkness, is almost ready. Down in the pit, the subterranean orchestra is already tuning up. The last-minute, walk-on partsare even now being filled. Most of the main actors, one suspects, have already taken up their roles. Soon it will be time for them to come on stage, ready for the curtain to rise.The time for action will have come." (
From The Armageddon Script,
by Peter LeMesurier, St. Martin's Press, 1982: NewYork, p.252).
One could easily think the above paragraph came from a Hal Lindsey book warning Christians of the evil that is to come.Incredibly, such is not the case. The above quote is the summation of
The Armageddon Script
by Peter LeMesurier a noted pyramidologist/occultist. It is a how-to manual for New Agers and intellectuals interested in staging a simulated secondcoming of Christ. The script they write, if successfully staged, could deceive "even the very elect." (1)It is logical and proper to question why one might expect the average person of intelligence to support such aPage 8.scheme. To the contrary, it is precisely the intellectual whose support is being courted
for this undertaking. The"Armageddon Script" is based upon theories popular among the intellegentsia and they
being courted by flatteries.
(2).The theories behind "The Armageddon Script" will seem familiar to those studied in psychological theories. Many laymentoo have heard of "Jungian archetypes." Briefly stated, the belief is that humanity has unfulfilled prophecy or "Jungianarchetypes" cluttering up its collective psyche. They further believe that a prophecy, once uttered, takes on a life of its own.They believe that prophecy is essentially self-fulfilling. This prophetic life is called an "archetypal image"or "archetype".When humanity or significant segments of it await such fulfillment, it impedes human progress in other areas. Therefore,they say, we owe it to ourselves and to humanity as a whole to take steps to exorcise or remove these prophecies "hangingover us like a sword of Damocles ready to reek mischief at any time."(3) LeMesurier suggests detailed steps for a script typefulfillment to serve as a "lightning rod" against fulfillment at another, less convenient time. (4).The Bible well noted that in the last days "evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and beingdeceived." (5) Truly the author of
The Armageddon Script
shows evidence of strong delusion when he proclaims "there isno likelihood that these prophecieswill be fulfilled" He forgets his own possible role in their fulfillment!LeMesurier is a man with strong New Age connections, including a publishing relationship with the Findhorn Foundation in Northern Scotland. His books are widely promoted and sold in New Age bookstores. They show that he strongly supportsand promotes the New Age philosophies, including those of New Age favoritesPage 9.Trungpa Rampa, Edgar Cayce, Hugh Schonfield, Teilhard de Chardin, and even David Spangler. (6) He makes reference tothe
Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ
as well. From these sources he has compiled a startling agenda for
New Ager -unlike many of the others - Carefully studied the Bible. This was done for purposes of suggesting a scenario which coulddeceive less than well-informed Christians.If his plan - clearly part of what the New Agers call "The Plan" - were executed as written, it might be enough, as Jesussaid, to "deceive the very elect." (7)What is the proposed agenda that this "subterranean orchestra" is "already tuning up" for "down in the pit?" It is a trulystartling one.First, it calls for having their new "messiah" in the Holy Land by 1985 or not later than the arrival of Halley's Comet inearly 1986.(8)
