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.

Christian Persecution in the Last Days

“Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.”

(2 Timothy 3:12)

I recently viewed the movie The Promise, an historical romance based on the facts surrounding the Armenian Genocide in Turkey during the First World War.

Armenian Genocide

During the years 1915 to 1918, Armenians were systematically removed from the Muslim majority society in the Ottoman Empire; they were put into camps or killed, simply because of their cultural and racial heritage. They were Christians.

Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political or cultural group (Miriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary, Miriam-Webster Incorporated, Springfield, Mass USA, 2008), such as was undertaken in Nazi Germany against the Jews and homosexuals during WWII, and in Turkey against the Armenian Christians, after they allied with the Germans in WWI.

Until I met and became friends with an Armenian a year or two ago, I had never heard of the Armenian genocide. I hadn’t realised that in the early 20th century Christians had faced persecution on a large — national and international — level. Now, as I look at the present day, such as when ISIS terrorists beheaded men at the waterside, for example, I realise persecution of Christians has been on the rise for some time. This is further evidence that we are in the Last Days before Jesus’ return (see 2 Timothy 3).

Last Days are Perilous Times

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.” (2 Timothy 3: 1-4) Does this also not describe the times we are in?

The persecution does not always begin with expulsion and death. Whether you are a baker in Belfast, N Ireland or in Oregon in America, you can be persecuted for your faith.

And those who speak on behalf of Christians or their values can also experience persecution. Never has a United States president had such hate thrust upon him, until President Trump. His inauguration speech called for unity and hope, citing Psalm 133 and that the unity of brethren pull together. He asked the citizens of America to stand in solidarity with one another, regardless of colour or economic situation. When a child of poverty, black, white or brown skin goes to bed at night in America, he looks up at the same sky as a child in wealth, black, white or brown skin, he said.

Attack on Trump

But his detractors inspired and continue to insight protest. Then, people raged and carried signs saying, “Not My President”. To my mind their behaviour was reminiscent of the brownshirts’ uprising in fascist Nazi Germany. And yet, they protest, accusing Trump of such sympathies.

Today, while Donald J Trump does himself no favours with his confrontational style and tweets, giving loads of ammunition to his enemies to use against him, he nevertheless has been vilified on a scale never before seen by a US president.

Why is this happening?

I believe at the heart of it is satan, working his way through the minds of those who dislike Trump, using them to attack so he can’t get on with government.

Why would satan take an interest?

Because Jesus is elevated by those who surround the president and Judeo-Christian values are at the heart of his policies.

There is persecution, there is a war going on. We are not to fear. We need to be aware and to be ready.

With persecution comes hope. Jesus will come “in the night”, and he will call us to himself.

We must be sure we have our lamps when he comes, and that they are fully prepped with the oil of the Holy Spirit. We must be dressed as the bride, ready for his call.

As we witness the signs: the deterioration of society and the persecution of Christians to name only two, we must see that the End is near. Jesus will come and he’ll call us to him. We need not to fear but to be ready.
