“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.”
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.
