Conspiracy Theories : Are “They” really out to get you?         


Conspiracies just can't exist Can They?
Thirty years ago as a young Pastor of a “Street type” ministry I used to become irritated by the sensationalism and almost paranoid manner in
which many “conspiracies” were presented as fulfillment of Bible Prophecy. A theme to many of the writings, sermons and teachings on tape, radio and TV, usually created an urgency and fear to “do something”. That something, was in many cases never addressed or left the individual to rely upon in their own human strength and resources to “get ready” for the hard times coming. Looking back, I believe living in the land of the “Free”, it was offensive to think that people would run down the country and lay claim to clandestine activities by our Government against the American people. I used to think that perhaps this rash of new conspiracies was a left over from the Anti-War Protest years. Frustrated Hippies having nothing else to rebel against were finding their new source in conspiracies. Also, the idea of having no actual control over policies, and choice because “they” already determined the out come of such matters in secret meetings was also offensive. Each individual can and does make a difference so there can be no
conspiracies against the people. Or can there?
 

Close Encounters of the Weird Kind
My ministry looked more like a survivalist's group as many came from the “outlaw biker” background. Because of this we had been approached be several organizations that wanted us to hook up with them. As I studied the groups beliefs, I had concluded that these people knew enough about assumed Bible prophecy to make themselves dangerous to themselves and to others in the name of doing good. What they lacked was the trust and faith in a personal God that could direct their lives without strife and fear. Twenty years later with such a breakdown of traditional values and world views, I have to admit that I was wrong in turning a deaf ear to all of these ideas because of a poor presentation or the reactions of extreme types.
In the last ten years I have studied the UFO, Alien Abduction phenomena. This has for me opened up a “Pandora’s box” of cover ups and conspiracies. I have been left with no other conclusion in my research than the fact that yes a World conspiracy really does exist! Where I may differ with the many zealots and people motivated by fear and strife, my confidence and peace of mind comes from believing in a God that can and will provide for each one of us no matter what fearful things might be going on around us. It really doesn’t matter what you or I think about Conspiracies, what does the Bible have to say about them and more important how are we to respond? Is there a balance? Can you believe in the realties of Conspiracies and not behave like a reactionary Paranoid? There are answers!


The god of this World:
The Bible tells us that Satan is the god of this world. 2Co4:4 World means the system or arrangement of this entire present universe.
God, when used with a small g signifies an imitation or copy of the real thing. It is something done over or repeated. In this sense not the real God but an imitation. He assisted man in his fall into a linear existence. He set this system up, he has a plan for it. He is able to place people and events accordingly. Just as God works through people, Satan likewise must work through people with his minions.

 

He has a Plan:
Paul stated in 2Th2:7 that a mystery of Iniquity was already actively at work. This Mystery of Iniquity is actually a five point plan to eternalize this linear dimension into an eternal state. It is outlined through the Prophet Isaiah in Isa 14:13,14. Many Christians believe Satan to be an already defeated foe randomly creating chaos and bringing down as many with him as possible. But.. He has fallen , is falling and will continue to fall until thrown into the Lake of Fire! He is even more dangerous than that as we are told that “a fire burns within him”. Ezk 28:18 This fire means insanity! In spite of his vast intellect he will always come to the wrong conclusions because his sin and separation from fellowship with God caused him to go insane. He has hope of victory. He thinks he will beat God at his own game! He will do the same but opposite of everything God did in hopes of producing his own heaven or eternal state. As part of this plan he must use mankind and work through them to achieve his goal. The Bible does tell us that an attempt to create a One World Government will be made just prior to Christ’s return and in part, the reason for his
return. It is only logical to understand that such an endeavor just doesn’t happen on it’s own. A very sophisticated and elaborate plan would have to be implemented in a clandestine manner. To believe that such an attempt could be accomplished spontaneously or in some hap in stance fashion is ridiculous!


A plan Conspired:

Rev 17:8-13 "The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. "Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. "And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition. "The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. "These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. (NKJ)

In Revelation 17th Chapter, we are warned that a “Beast” who was alive and died, will come back to life, ascending out of the bottomless pit to rule this final One World Empire. In context we are told that this “Beast” was a leader of one of seven prior Earthly Empires. Jesus told John in his time that 5 have already been past, One is, (The Roman Empire) and one when it comes will appear for just a short time, then this dead ruler comes back to lead the final Empire just before the return of Christ. His power will not be his own, The dragon gives him his power. (Rev 13:4) Which is in a sense a supernatural power. He also receives a very natural power from ten people! “they will give their power and authority to the beast.” The ones giving this power and authority to this “beast” are ten people who have no Kingdom but have the power of Kings. These are this worlds most rich elite, the same handful of families always mentioned in most of these Conspiracy Theories. They have one mind and willingly give their resources to the beast. They do this because they have one common goal, one agenda and one promise. They will be King’s for a short time. That my friend is a Conspiracy! There is no other way of defining this text of scripture. Ten rich powerful people make a pact and pool their resources together to help set up this final last ruler. It can only be accomplished by Conspiring together secretly. The only “proof” is here in the scriptures. A good conspiracy is one with no evidence. This one will work for a short while so we cannot expect proof, or what proof is shown will not be believed. It is also probably no coincidence that the United Nations has, as part of their ultimate plans for this planet, divided up the whole earth into ten different sections. To ignore this part of Prophecy is like ignoring the re-establishment of Israel in 1948 as not a major fulfillment of Prophecy. The fact is they both are. In your skepticism, I hope you can now see that your argument is no longer with “paranoid people”, it is with the Word of God.
 

So How do we react?

If we are in fact living in these times today, our orders are very clear. In the past I believe praying Christians sought out the Lord and went to war. There is a time and place for everything. (Ecc3:1) This particular time if now or in the yet future, Christians are told how to react to these end time events.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death”. Rev12:11  “He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints Here is the patience and and and faith of the saints.Rev12:11 " Rev 13:10

In this particular time, Christians will be blamed for all of the worlds ills. We are to react in a passive manner unnatural to our normal sense of survival. Certain things are going to happen that no one can change! If you think you are going to alter them, they will only alter you! It will only be with the help of God’s Spirit that we will be able to accomplish this. The Blood of the Lamb, restores us to a right relationship with God. We have the confidence that we are his child. We can also realize that we are on the winning side! There is something better waiting beyond this life. We are to simply do nothing! The battle is the Lords! We are to continue our lives in love, building up our families, and sharing the hope that is within us to everyone that asks. Our patience and faith is in not responding by digging bunkers, storing guns and striving to protect at all cost, our ways and our lives. We are to be Ambassadors to Christ right to the very end! This world will form into a New World Order! That means Nationalism will break down. It also means that there are those working right now to accomplish this goal. Do we just roll over and let it happen? No! We can voice God’s warnings to many who will respond, we can remain active politically and exercise our right to vote and make a difference. We do what we should without expectations, just because it is the right thing to do. If God should choose to intervene He can and will by your obedience. You just need to
keep in mind that this prophecy is unconditional. It will happen someday weather you like it or not! Jesus said it this way
:
"Now when these things begin to happen, look up  and lift up our heads, because your redemption draws
near." Luke 21:28


There is a balance that can only be made by Knowing God’s Word, experiencing it in your life and “Walking” in a relationship with the Author.
 

Yes They Truly are out to get you but...
" For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Rom 8:38-39 (KJV)
