Conspiracy..? by Merwin
If one believes in the last days... then to believe in Conspiracies is a must.
It is easy to understand why the unbelievers consider the conspiracy theorists to be nutcases, these non-theists can "legitimately" rationalize away all the evidence that points to end times... and therefore the need for any conspiracies to pave the way for those events.
At least it would be legitimate for them, but not legitimate at all for believers of our last days scenarios.
For us, conspiracies must exist in abundance, and they, should have had their start in the first century A.D.
Back in that day, Paul gave notice outright. Though in his day it was more mystery than manifest, it was general rather than specific. He was inspired to write that the anti-christ, "that Wicked" was already at work in his day, indicating foundations upon which today's financial, political, and anti-faith structures are built.
Paul writes, 2nd Thes 2:7-9 (Amplified Bible)...
7 For the mystery of lawlessness (that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority) is already at work in the world, [but it is] restrained only until he who restrains is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one (the antichrist) will be revealed and the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of His mouth and bring him to an end by His appearing at His coming. 9 The coming [of the lawless one, the atichrist] is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of [pretended] miracles and signs and delusive marvels -- [all of them] lying wonders --
Then, with the "New World Order" enjoying world wide promotion through the governance of nearly every world power, the evidence should be hard to ignore even for non-believers.
Or, should we as believers, consider the Wicked One to become embodied on the scene of modern world events, with no preparations having been made by himself through the people that he controlled..? And, if he has not been preparing the world and setting it up with tremendously dire circumstances, then what has he been "hard at work" doing since the days of Paul's warning.
Let us reflect on just some of the many descriptors for the embodied anti-christ.
He is said to have miraculous solutions to catastrophic issues. What if most, if not all of the woes he solves were a product of his own design? And, what if these contrivances were carefully wrought over the course of many generations. Does this not then showcase his continuity in human purposes over the 2000 years? The extension of time acting as his camouflage (especially to the unbeliever), is not this too, part of his criminal genius?
The entire world shall say, "Why, in just a few weeks this new leader has solved all our severe dilemmas that our societies constructed over many lifetimes..!"
Among the many "miraculous" solutions, probably the most predominant would be the economic one, and it is the focus of this Hub.
While "the economic solution" does include the Mark of the Beast, this posting is about “conspiracies” and so, though the “Mark” itself may be mentioned several times, it will not be dealt with in depth.
The miraculous answers to desperate questions will be all the more astounding when considered in light of the hundreds of years. That is how long the current economic enigma has been building.
International credit, and centralized banking that facilitates it, gained monstrous momentum through Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s efforts in the late 1700 s and early 1800s. And has simply gained power exponentially since those early days. In those days Rothschild was quoted as saying, “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws."
Is it odd... that throughout its recent history Centralized Banking has controlled through loans, most of the world's wars with few exceptions..? Should we not find it strange that these Bankers would loan funds to both sides of a conflict, under the agreement that the side that won, would be responsible for the debts of the loosing side as well as their own? Further, is it any wonder that the only entities that are not harmed in any fashion by financial meltdowns are the Centralized Banking Systems?
It must be asked... to whom are the interest rates for today's bailout loans being paid?
Over the past couple of years I have heard of our economic situation being confirmed by expert after expert saying, “This economic nightmare did not have to happen, it could have easily been avoided.” And, “We were being told of the Real Estate, over-inflated, subprime bubble for a year and a half and nobody did anything to prevent it.” Many more comments like this should indicate to us that maybe; just maybe these types of financial catastrophes may have been intentional.
The current evidence points to the financial landscape getting much, much worse, and very quickly. I maintain that it is by design, and this design... from a conspiracy perspective, is based on crucial timing. The timing is excessively important for heightened urgency, and if the global desperation for financial, political and religious solutions, are at their apex. Then the "solution savior" will be embraced by nearly everyone.
All of these climate conditions are accelerating to levels that are not just unmanageable, they are quickly becoming a "perfect storm". Which leads me to believe that The Anti-Christ is ready, and he is waiting in the wings for the perfect moment of desperation.
That incubated, exacerbated moment, when he may step in declaring "Peace be Still..!" His solutions though drastic, will be welcomed with open hearts, and "faith" in mankind will be restored.
The Mark of the Beast, will be first introduced as a regional, financial solution, then as a global mandate.
Sometime during that embryonic financial healing period, a political solution will be revealed through a peace accord that allows Israel to build its temple on the mount in Jerusalem, which of course, would be considered by all to be a political miracle.
Then when the temple is complete, and the Mark is gaining worldwide popularity... and, "faith in mankind" is at an all time high: The Architect, the "Solution Savior" will, by force if necessary, stand in the Temple's Holy of Holies, and proclaim himself and therefore, by extension, all mankind, to be god.
The emblem of their worship will be the number of man 666. The Idol of their worship will be the Mark of the Beast (and the Beast), that has brought all who receive it, to an identity and financial security never before enjoyed. Then when the Mark becomes a global mandate... the only faiths allowed form of worship will be based on that, "Man is his own god" premise. All other expressions of faith must align their-selves to its dictates, or be outlawed.
And then all the political powers will follow the financial, and religious solutions, that brought their now, global governance so much security.
And this will all be accomplished in the three and a half years before he broadcasts his proclamation from the Holiest place of the newly constructed Temple. Once this declaration is made... it will only be three and a half more years before Jesus returns in all his glory.
All this could not just appear... it took many hundreds of years to set up, and the last couple hundred years to come to a head.
There is a lot more to this, such as the nature of the financial miracle, and if anyone is interested I will continue on another Hub.
Hint: The abolition of credit, there will be no need for it.
