Pat Robertson and the Occult

"When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: though shalt not be afraid of him." Deut. 18:22

I really don't like Jimmy Kimmel, but he has figured out what type of character Pat has, unlike the Christians who follow him.

In Constance Cumbey's book "A Planned Deception: The Staging of a New Age 'Messiah'", which was written in 1985, she devotes a section to Pat Robertson and the way he has used the 700 Club. She points out the subtle parallels between Robertson's teachings and occultism.

She states:
Robertson's The Secret Kingdom tells the reader about "eight universal laws" he says God showed him about a diligent search for wisdom a la King Solomon. Interestingly enough, God decided to reval such "secrets" to him along the seacoast, under a full moon, at Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Clearly there is much that seems wholesome and good in his writings. However, the major thrust of his books are disturbing to many of those aware of the strategy of the New Age Movement. There are disturbingly strong parallels in them with Rosicrucianism, Theosophy, including Alice Bailey's teachings, and even Russian occultist George Gurdjieff. Robertson's Law of Reciprocity sounds amazingly like Gurdjieff's "Law of Reciprocal Maintenance."

Such parallels take on deep significance to the Christian when one recalls Robertson's claims that God chose him and CBN "to usher in the coming of my Son." They take on even deeper meaning when one considers the frequency with which the 700 Club has featured New Age activists. For example, he has frequently featured Jeremy Rifkin, a prominent New Age leader. Rifkin has boasted to interviewers that Robertson's program has been one of his chief entry points to the Evangelicals.

Further, as previously stated a major goal of CBN is to work for "the establishment of "Jesus Christ's Kingdom here on earth." CBN supporters have been urged to support its television station in the Middle East "because that is the station that will televise Jesus Christ's return to earth." Freedom Council members have been asked to pray for the station's safety for that same reason! And when people are told that when the Bible says every eye shall see him, it means "on television" as Robertson has, the record surely must be set straight.
My Bible tells me a very different story. Owning a television set is not a prerequisite for witnessing the second coming.
"Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him." Rev. 1:7

If this be the case, it will not be a secret return, and there may even be some noise. 

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God..." 1 Thess. 4:16

So now we know Pat's involvement in Freemasonry is legitimate. We know that the New Age Christ will be brought onto the world stage through an earthly televised entry, and he has been instrumental into indoctrinating Christians.

In the following YouTube, you will witness one of these subtle New Age demonstrations Constance spoke about. The footage is from the 700 Club in which Pat Robertson defends religious freedom for Witches, and accepts the presence of Witches in the U.S. Armed Forces. You should be aware that the Wiccans do not believe in Satan - because they call him Lucifer.
