One World Government Schemes: What to do with the reports

One World Government

“Just because I’m paranoid, doesn’t mean they’re not out to get me.”

(Humorous saying – Cambridge Dictionary)

This is a well-worn expression we can apply the to the conspiracy theories of “One World Government” which allegedly plot to dramatically depopulate the world (using amongst other devices, chemtrails and immunisations that carry cancer-producing agents) and destroy national boarders once-and-for-all.

According to a variety of conspiracy theorists, an elite group of wealthy and influential people who are largely a-political in the usual sense, have been plotting for decades to control the world. They pull their weight through their money and influence. They are possessed of the same passion for control and power that has existed for centuries and has manifested itself in leaders such as the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt, Caesar and other leaders of Ancient Rome, Attila the Hun, Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin. Some would say they want to create a master race through Eugenics; others would simply say they want the world for themselves.

What do we do with the massive number of YouTube videos and other alternative news platforms which spout these rumours? How do we weigh the facts against the propaganda? What is true and what is fantastical?

For me, I navigate this alternative viewpoint as best as possible:

  1. with a discerning eye.
  2. I don’t watch more than I can stomach.
  3. And most important of all, I don’t allow myself to get drawn in emotionally.

Do I believe there is such a group? Yes, But do I believe all that is spouted about it? No, because there is at least as much supposition and assumption in those reports against conspiracy as there is basis for fact. This is disappointing, because we get plenty of bias in the mainstream media.I wish it were not the case also in the alternative media.

Acceptance, not denial

Here’s how I seek to address the conspiracy theories.

I am not surprised there are powerful people who seek to dominate the world. That is history and sadly, as human beings, we do not seem to learn from history as much as we tend to repeat it.

But while I am aware of such things, I try to keep at arm’s length. Yes, I pray about these matters, but I do not attempt to pray beyond my remit. Always there will be evil, but I am not equipped or called to do battle directly against satan nor many of his forces; therefore, I must discern, pray, and leave what is not my job to those who’s job it is to expose or to thwart the plans of the enemy.

But by acceptance, I don’t mean I wish to allow these forces or these people to succeed. What I mean is that I seek to be aware of the reality of the schemes, to be wary of the bias publicised against — and for — these people, and be alert to how I am meant to share the reality, to pray against it, or to refute publicly or in private about their schemes.

We don’t live in fear

That’s Number 1. GOD tells us repeatedly, though we be up against terror, we shall not fear. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom” (Psalm 111:10) and that will lead us to truth and peace-of-mind, and will give us the courage to face whatever comes along.

We don’t try to change the Word of GOD

Revelation, also called The Apocalypse, speaks of the plagues and mark of the beast, to name just two of Last Days circumstances. (Revelation 6 and 13) We must surely warn against taking the mark. But we are not going to stop it, nor should we try. What is in GOD’s Word we want to come to pass, though we can surely aim to protect others against the wiles of the devil.

We know, as we read and believe GOD’s Word, that He is in control. As we surrender to His will, and as we give our time and attention to His plan and purpose, we are closer to bringing His kingdom to earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10)

We don’t be complacent

The weapon of our warfare is first and foremost, the Word of GOD, declared through the sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:10-18). And so our best weapon is to pray fervently and consistently, as GOD leads. To be aware of the world around us is key to discovering how we are meant to pray, but we must guard our minds and hearts against the machinations and manipulations of fear and intrigue.

Let’s keep our eye on the Lord Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, and let us pray for GOD’s will and His way to be done. The timing and the mechanisms that GOD chooses to use for His purposes must be supported and trusted. I believe we must discern and pray as He leads us.

Amen.

Do not be afraid of Conspiracy

“Do not say, “A conspiracy,”

Concerning all that this people call a conspiracy,

Nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.

The LORD of hosts, him you shall hallow;

Let Him be your fear, And let Him be your dread.”

Isaiah 8:11-15

There will be conspiracy. Do not be afraid of the outcome. 

The message of Isaiah Chapter 8 reads as though Isaiah were living in the 21st century.

There are so many conspiracy theories now, both from the Left and from the Right of the political spectrum, particularly in America but elsewhere too, that it is hard to miss the fact that we have lost all sense of what is true or accurate in the media and politics. Television drama and real life seem to overlap and the lines have become seriously blurred.

But we do not need to be afraid. We don’t need to be afraid of the end of our lives, if there is a threat of chemical warfare, chemtrails to reduce population, or One World Government. Just as there are wars and rumours of wars (Matthew 24) so to are there conspiracies.

But let us not be overcome. False news will be exposed, persecution must come, and all will be right in the End. Jesus wins! (Indeed, he already has won for all those who choose to believe and follow him.)

The Lord Reigns

Yes, the LORD reigns (1 Chronicles 16:31, Psalm 93, 96, 97).

Let the earth rejoice (Psalm 97). Let the heavens declare (Psalm 50) the glory of the LORD (Exodus 16, 24).

As we focus on the LORD’s leadership, strength and power, we can find and keep Shalom, GOD’s peace — which passes all understanding.

Wars and Rumours of Wars?

Yes, but do not fear.

The battle belongs to the LORD.

Amen.
