Which Steps Have You Taken to Aid World Transformation?

Alchemist-Godhood - World TransformationWhich Steps Have You Taken to Aid World Transformation?

Business, leadership, networks, churches, planting, communities, transformation, growth, change.  This is all we hear lately.  So I wondered if there was any correlation between the Seven Transformations of Leadership — (David Rooke and William R. Torbert – Harvard Business Review) and my Action Steps toward Enlightenment and World Transformation.  — (Deborah from wwww.discerningtheworld.com)

So I drew up a table taking the Seven Transformations of Leadership from David Rooke and William R. Torbert and then I did a comparison with regards to mankind’s growth into New Age Spirituality.  William Torbet promotes New Age Spiritual transformation.  The outcome of my comparison is not at all surprising.

Colossians 2:8-10   8 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. 9For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, 10and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority

Please note that I have written my column called the Action Steps toward Enlightenment and World Transformation from the perspective of someone who wants to transform the world under a false Christ.  As you will see the first level is a level for those who refuse to transform i.e., born again Christians:  We are considered narrow minded and a hindrance to World Transformation.  At the bottom of this article I then have a short summary.

The Bible verses I have included show how levels 2-7  levels are detestable before God.

Although you make your heart like the heart of God–

Ezekiel 28:6-7   6Therefore thus says the Lord GOD,  ‘Because you have made your heart like the heart of God,  7Therefore, behold, I will bring strangers upon you, The most ruthless of the nations. And they will draw their swords.  Against the beauty of your wisdom.  And defile your splendor.

Notes based on:    Seven Transformations of Leadership from David Rooke and William R. Torbert’s findings:                                   

  • 5% of the world’s population is genuine Christian; who are born again through Jesus Christ the Only Begotten Son of God
  • 94% of the world population wonders around aimlessly seeking but never finding the Way the Truth and the Life that is Jesus Christ the Son of God –   John 14:6
  • 1% of world’s population will obtain ultimate enlightenment or satanic godhood and be part of world’s elite. 
  • WORST OF ALL – All of this is just a complete and utter deception for sin against God at any level is sin.  
    • Levels 2-7 is actually Level 1 in massive disguise.  
      • Anti-Christians see born again Christians at Level 1 unwilling to accept New Age, satanic transformation.  
      • However Anti-Christians are themselves at Level 1: 
        1. self serving – want to be God,
        2. manipulative – lies to achieve godliness,
        3. might makes right – seek to destroy and completely annihilate those that oppose the coming world wide fascist rule.  


1 Peter 5:8    “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Jeremiah 4:7    7“A lion has gone up from his thicket,   And a destroyer of nations has set out;   He has gone out from his place   To make your land a waste.  Your cities will be ruins

Note that levels 2-7 are mutually inclusive, as the new world view transforms you spiritually, they tell you that you will grow in spiritual wisdom and come to know secret knowledge (which is a delusion).  The bible says:

Ecclesiastes 1:17-18   17And I set my mind to know wisdom and to know madness and folly; I realized that this also is striving after wind.  18Because in much wisdom there is much grief, and increasing knowledge results in increasing pain.

  • Level 1 (Bible believing Christians) operate by the sound wisdom of Holy Spirit and not man made wisdom and knowledge. 
  • Level 1 (Bible believing Christians) remains static in SOUND DOCTRINE and preaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ – the power of God for the salvation of everyone who chooses to believes in Him;  to return to Jesus Christ the Son of God and REPENT of their sin.    

Rom 1:16  “16For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes…”

Not good stats at all for (levels 2-7);  those who are going to go through the tribulation. Even the Illuminated say that only 1% of the world will ever achieve godhood (false godhood – a lie by Satan).  ***See near the bottom of this article regarding The Georgia Guidestones – a freemasonry manifesto carved on stone to kill 95% of the world’s population.


God forgives and saves ALL who humble themselves before Him (instead if elevate themselves above Him), and repent of their sinful ways, through His Son Jesus Christ that died on the cross for your sin so that you may receive eternal life and not perish.

Those stuck on Level 2 Stop being Luke warm – make a stand for Jesus Christ the Son of God.  Time is running out.  To say that ‘one day you will change’ when tomorrow could you your last is foolish.

Revelation 3:15-16   15 ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot16 ‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.

Church stuck under Levels 3 and 4:  Pick up your bibles and study the Word of God for yourself, do not be fooled by ‘experts’ and the ‘achievers’ who claim to know the truth when in fact they do not.

Jesus Christ the Son of God who DIED FOR YOU and ROSE again, WILL RETURN to JUDGE this wicked world. 

For those who LOVE the TRUTH that IS JESUS CHRIST the WORD OF GOD MADE FLESH – REPENT of your SIN, HUMBLE yourself before HIM who became a SACRIFICE on your BEHALF. 

That HIS shed Blood WILL wash away your sin and present you spotless before a HOLY HOLY GOD, your HEAVENLY FATHER.

Jesus Christ is YOUR ONLY SALVATION from the coming horrors that will take place soon.

Acts 4:12  “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” 

1 Timothy 2:5  “For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all …”

Ephesians 4:4   “There is one body and one Spirit … one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”  

John 14:6   Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

John 10:9   “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and find pasture … I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

John 11:25    Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.”

John 8:12    Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

John 6:35   And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”

John 6:51    “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

John 3:15-16    “… whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

John 3:36   “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

John 8:24   “Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.

John 5:24   “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.”

1 John 5:11    “… And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; He who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”

1 John 4:14    “And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.”
