“There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious
things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.”
There Is A Conspiracy
Is what is happening in the world an accident? Can the madness and deceit that is happening in so many parts of the world just be coincidental. The Bible says there will eventually come a time when there will be a famine for the truth. “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD.
Concerning conspiracy theories it occurred to us that we had not seen the topic approached from a completely Biblical standpoint,
although during the course of our reading etc. We have seen scripture used to support many different aspects by different writers in their efforts to expose the conspiracies.
We thought that something that was solely based on scripture could
be useful in helping to convince some Christians, who are either unaware of different conspiracies or have a difficult time in believing such conspiracies exist or that key members of their government, business communities, etc. could be involved in such conspiracies.
All the way from Genesis to Revelation we find conspiracy and deceit as one of Satan's major modus operandi. After fear, it seems that
conspiracy, deceit, lies, etc. is one of his most frequently used tactics in pursuit of His ultimate goal, to become a god and incur the worship of mankind and the human race.
Whatever name we refer to, the Conspiracy or parts of the Conspiracy,
all the individuals and groups involved emanate from one and the same source and are working together, either knowingly or unknowingly for one and the same goal. (“By means such as these the extraordinary result was brought about that a multitude of
men of divers beliefs were all working together for an object known only to a few of them” M. Reinhart Dozy.”)
The goal is the rise of Satan, whom the Bible calls “the god of this world”,(2 Corinthians 4:4), and his
worship by multitudes in the form of a man the Bible refers to as the Beast, and more commonly known as the Anti-Christ along with his soon coming Mark of 666 described in the Book of Revelation, chapter 13, verses 16-18.
The Bible in the book
of Ephesians, chapter 6, sums this up very concisely and simply by stating in verse 12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities (demon princes who reside over certain areas or territories) against powers, against the rulers
of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”. (There was a book in the British Library in London called “The Key of Solomon” which lists the most important demon princes and their principalities or areas of
The people and organizations involved in helping to bring about the rise of the antichrist are actually only the physical manifestation of where the conflict is really taking place, the spirit world, where Satan and his demons are
working to complete their plan.
The Bible says in 2Timothy, Chapter 3, verse 1 and 13 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come…evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived”.
(Longman New Generation Dictionary defines “deceive” as “to accept as true or good what is false or bad”.) Conspiracy is defined in various dictionaries as a “secret plan”, “plot”, “devise” “to
plan together secretly” etc.
One of the actual signs of the “Last Days” is a growing and increasing amount of deceit in the world, or something appearing to be good and true when in fact it is false and bad. Paul wrote in
2 Corinthians, chapter 11, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent (Satan) beguiled (deceived – Longman New Generation Dictionary) Eve through his subtlety, (not immediately obvious, crafty) so your minds would be corrupted from the simplicity
that is in Christ. All the way back in Genesis, chapter 3, we see that Satan used deceit to actually cause the fall of man. He made something appear to be good which was actually bad, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. He has used deceit from the
Discernment is not be able to tell the difference between right and wrong , but being able to telling the difference between what is right and what appears to be right when it is actually wrong.
The true yard
stick we have for measuring truth is the Bible, the Word of God. As the Bible says in Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death”. Jeremiah 17:9 says “The heart is deceitful above
all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it”.
Revelation 13:13-14 states, “And he (the false prophet) doeth great wonders…and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth…that they should make an image to the beast”.
Here we have the False Prophet and the Beast (Antichrist) conspiring together to get the peoples of the world to worship this image of the Beast or be killed.
Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called
the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world…”. Again deceit being one of Satan’s most powerful tools. Also remember Jesus said to the religious leaders of His day in John 8:44, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts
of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. Jesus also said people could be so deceived
in John 16:2 that “the time cometh that whosoever killeth you, will think that he doeth God service”. This is happening today
How could anyone be so deceived? It is because they reject the truth. 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 says, “And
with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:”.
again Christians be deceived? Yes. Paul in his letter to the church in Galatia wrote, “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth” and “Ye did run well: who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?”
(Galatians 3:1 and 5:7) Look how many Christians do not believe the Church is going to go through the Great Tribulation when it is as clear as can be in numerous scriptures, Mathew 24:29 and 30 being just two examples. “Immediately after the tribulation
of those days…shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”
In virtually every
book, newsletter, video, etc. it always gets around to explaining who these conspirators and deceivers are, it is explained that they are the wealthiest amongst us. Once again the Bible over 2500 years ago pin-pointed who these people are that Satan and his
demons are using, and the Bible is in agreement that they are indeed the great and wealthy men of the earth. Hosea 12:7 says, “He is a merchant the balances of deceit are in his hand. Revelation 6:5-6 says, “..And I beheld, and lo a black horse;
and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny and three measures of barley for a penny;…”. And Revelation 18:23 which says, “…for
thy merchants were the great men of the earth: for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived”. And let’s not forget 1 Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is the root of all evil”. And what does money buy? Money buys power, which some
have described as “the ultimate aphrodisiac”. The dictionary describes aphrodisiac as “a medicine, drug, etc. causing sexual excitement”.
The only act of violence Jesus ever carried out that is recorded in the Bible
was when he whipped the money changers out of the Temple. The international bankers of His day.
What could more accurately describe the world today than what King Solomon said three thousand years ago, “The rich ruleth over the poor,
and the borrower is servant to the lender.” Proverbs 22:7
Is it any wonder then when Babylon, the Great Whore is destroyed the merchants or the earth weep. “With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants
of the earth have made drunk with the wine of her fornication” Revelation 17:2 and “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the
earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies”. Revelations 18:3 “The merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her: for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver...and and slaves, and souls
of men. Revelation 18:11-13. The Bible exposed all of this thousands of years ago.
Jesus said in Matthew 6:24, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other: or else he will hold to the one, and despise
the other, Ye cannot serve God and mammon”.
Matthew 24, one of the most prophetic chapters in the Gospels, Jesus Himself warned us repeatedly against the dangers of being deceived. “Take heed that no man deceive you…For many
shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many…many false prophets shall arise and shall deceive many…for there shall arise false Christ’s, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders: insomuch that, if
it were possible they shall deceive the very elect”.
A few more verses to show how Satan uses conspiracy and deceit to further his goals. Daniel 11:23, “And after the league made with him (the Antichrist) he shall work deceitfully.”
This is one of the chief ways the Antichrist comes to power, through deceit. Revelation 19:20, And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast and
them that worshipped his image…” In Revelation 20:7-8, “And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog,
to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.”
In contrast, the Bible in Isaiah 53:9, in a prophetic description of the coming Messiah Jesus, describes one of his outstanding characteristics that “…neither
was any deceit in his mouth”. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.
“And the Lord said to me, A conspiracy is found
among the men of Juda, and among the dwellers in Jerusalem. 10 They are turned aside to the iniquities of their fathers that were of old, who would not hearken to my words: and, behold, they go after strange gods, to serve them: and the house of Israel and
the house of Juda have broken my covenant, which I made with their fathers.” Jeremiah 11:9
May God bless us with the wisdom and discernment we will need in the days ahead.
