Mendacity: The Conspiracy Continues with Lucifer.
If you knew the truth...
If you knew people were worshiping Lucifer, the very same one mentioned in the bible, how would that make you feel? Especially in this day and age? And if you're one of those people, what do you think about Jesus Christ? That He's the bad guy? What if you're Hindu, Buddhist, Pagan, Wiccan, or anything else? What would you say if I told you that Illuminated Satanists believe, that all your religions are the product of Lucifer? Or how about you Atheists out there? What if I told you, that Illuminated Satanists honestly believe that the Atheist movement, was their idea?
I know, a lot of questions to take in all at once. Some very shocking rhetorical claims. But...
Growing up, I was more of an atheist. More like deist or theist, but leaned towards atheism. I honestly thought that there was a possibility of something "out there" existing, but didn't look for it or seek it out. So when I found out that there were people who actually worshiped the devil, that kind of threw me for a loop. I had to investigate why, considering a common saying among people in this time is, "The greatest trick Satan pulled on the world, was getting them to believe he didn't exist."
Even Christians, have radically differing views of end-times event chronology, to the point of ruling out Satan himself as being a part of any end times prophecy. So if it is true that his greatest trick was a disappearing act... Spending so much time to hide from humans seemed pointless, if he also had people worshiping him. And for the most part, lots of people do not believe that Satanism is a factor in the world today. Most people do not see Satanism as a threat. What need does Satan have to hide, from popular opinion? What does Satan have to hide, at all?
Whatever the answers are going to be, at the very least, even no answer is interesting in of itself.
A Theistic look at Satan: Illuminated Satanism.
Satanism is a very diverse base of people, ranging in beliefs from Satan being just a force, to Satan being evil and serving him anyway. Some even believe that Satan is the creator, and the God of the bible is actually the bad guy. Still others believe that Satan doesn't exist, but they claim to be Satanists anyway.
Yeah I know, weird, right?
Well it gets better. Apparently there are even Satanists who knowingly worship him, and get instructions from him.
When I first found this out, I was shocked to know that people were talking to an actual entity, whom they believed to be helping them do things in this world. Seeing this from a deist/theist/atheist-type of perspective, I thought, 'Well, why would people be worshiping this guy, considering what the bible says about him?'
It seemed inconceivable to me that people would worship any god or gods, let alone one that is recognized by at least one group of people, to be evil. I mean, most people, if they're going to pick a religion like they're shopping at the grocery store... They pick the best looking one. They try and find the one that has the best morals, or some kind of reward system that makes them feel good about what they do. Most people don't look at Satan and say to themselves, "I want to serve this dark, mysterious and powerful god who is known as Lucifer!"
But they're out there, and the more I learned, the more I was shocked at what I found. I started feeling sorry for these guys, because if what the bible says is true, then the people who worship Lucifer are the most deceived of all.
But as it also turns out, most of them have a better handle on the bible and biblical events, than most Christians. That's what really boggled my mind. Because what I learned from their web pages, and their views on the world, and of history, and world events... How could they not see what I was starting to see? How could they not see what was going on, and stop to think about the implications of all this?
It is such a tangled web of deception, it is the conspiracy of all conspiracies: A very strong delusion!
Carroll Quigley, PhD.
"There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Group has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, of any other groups, and frequently does so.
I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments.
I have objected, but in the past and recently, to a few of its policies (notably to its belief that England was an Atlantic rather than a European Power and must be allied, or even federated, with the United States and must remain isolated from Europe), but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wished to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known."
-- Carroll Quigley, PhD. (Georgetown University), who commanded the subject of World History, said that. (Tragedy and Hope, Chapter 65). Was the guy crazy? No, I'd like to think that people who hold PhD's would kind of know what they're talking about. I mean, he didn't just throw all that together, out of thin air, did he? He was actually talking to real people about this, and reading supposed papers these people wrote, right?
The Conspiratorial view of History.
Mendacity: A Biblical Perspective of Conspiracies. - That is another hub I wrote, which details the setting for a conspiracy. Now, I didn't always believe that conspiracies existed. I thought for sure that people who believed conspiracies existed, were certifiably crazy. But, as I came to understand the nature of conspiracies, as just a means to an end, I started seeing them every time I heard someone tell a lie.
I started seeing them, even in the things I was doing. I was participating in a conspiracy, without my knowledge: I believed in the conspiracy, but didn't think it was a conspiracy. Those are the most powerful kind, and they're all over the place.
The secret nature of conspiracies, are based on lies. It totally destroyed my world-view when I started to see conspiracies as being, at the very least, a possibility. If conspiracies were true, then all this means is that people are doing things in secret to control other people. That isn't really secret at all! It happens all the times, in politics and business. So conspiracies must be true, because even small-scale conspiracies exist.
That time you got your sibling or friend, to vouch for your lie, so you wouldn't get in trouble? Or how about the time you got people to join you in making fun of someone, or generally harass them? What about when you took credit for something you didn't do, and even got others to believe you to the point of defending your stance?
Those are all examples of conspiracies. They happen every day. But what about history? Are there certifiable examples of conspiracies in the past?
There are tons of them, actually.
The plot to kill Julius Caesar, was a conspiracy. The "Gunpowder Plot" of Guy Fawkes, was a real guy who tried to blow up the House of Parliament building in London. The assassination of John F. Kennedy, no matter who was behind it, was a conspiracy. No one accidentally shoots the President of the United States, sorry. Mentally ill or not, they find these people and stop them before they get a chance, usually. Some even speculate that Communism is behind certain world events, and I honestly believe they are, but that they are being directed entirely from another source.
All the conspiracies you've ever heard of, are probably true in at least some part. Something is going on in the world, and if they weren't then the whole world wouldn't be in as much turmoil as it is right now. "Right now" being: 04 October 2012, a Thursday evening, with wonderful weather up here. (It's definitely Fall, the trees are already turning colors, like something you see in post cards).
The United States is virtually on the brink of disaster; financially, militarily, socially and even politically. (America hasn't been this politically divided, in over one-hundred years!) Islam is going crazy, engulfing the world in flames. Europe is having problems keeping it together, with a strong Germany behind a good portion of it. China is on the rise, and has been threatening Japan. North Korea wants to nuke South Korea, over petty ideological differences. Israel is surrounded by hostile nations, who have publicly declared their disdain and hatred for them. Africa hasn't seen a day of peace in nearly one-hundred years or more, enduring hardship most of the world turns a blind eye to, mostly due to the color of their skin. Atheistic Communism under the guise of Socialism is creeping into every "western" power, and so very much more.
What is it all building to? What is the point of all this? Who is behind all this madness? Why is the United States government setting up puppet states in foreign lands? Why is environmentalism on the rise? Where are all these "New Age" movements coming from? Why is Communism creeping into the United States government? Why are all of the worlds' religions, on a seemingly cosmic collision course, that might amount to an entire world in rejection of God?
Most importantly, why are Illuminated Satanists, claiming to be behind all these world events?
Certainly, truth seems stranger than fiction.
The Conspiracy against God.
Now hold on just a moment. If all this has even just a smidgen of truth in it... What does the bible say about Satan, exactly?
Just consider for a moment that the bible is actually true, and Satan really is the bad guy in the story. Without throwing a bunch of bible verses at you, just think about it for a moment. What if Satan really is behind all of these seemingly unconnected world events, guiding it with a precision that would at first glance seem impossible? What is the motive behind doing this?
Well, to illustrate this; consider that if there really is a plot to unite the entire world under one governing body, in a type of United Nations setting, what is the purpose of it? What, simply, is the end result, and who has the most to gain from all this?
Now, I said I wouldn't throw a bunch of bible verses at you, and I intend on keeping my promise for now. I'll warn you, that's in the next section. I'll back it all up with biblical references.
But in the book of Revelation, it talks about something like this in the end-times as happening. A single "world body" that rules over everything. So do the Illuminated Satanists, though. Where the bible says that God will defeat Satan's kingdom, Satanists believe they win in the end.
So the two viewpoints can't co-exist. Someone has got to be wrong. Who is it?
You see, the Illuminated Satanists who wield immense power, do so without giving away their secret hope to rule the entire world. But the problem is, Satan has promised all different kinds of people, that they would rule the world. Satan is getting you all to fight with each other, simply to weaken your spirits and get you to die. Because if Satan really is who the bible says he is, who Jesus Christ says he is, then Lucifer really does not care about anyone but himself!
The bible is many things, but it is most importantly a warning about how evil Satan really is, and how that relates to humankind. Because if Satan is as vain and self-serving as the bible says he is, then he doesn't care who you worship (or don't worship), just so long as it isn't God. You see, Satan is getting you to sin, in order to get God to destroy you. No other reason!
Satan knows he can't win against God, but puts on a splendid show for all of creation to see, just so you turn from God in your rebellion. And God allows it, just so that we will one day turn from our sins, and be saved the pain of death in the lake of fire. Yet, knowing that you're not really to blame for all this, He personally stepped in and payed for our sins, Himself.
God has no enemies.
"For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life." - Romans chapter 5, verse 10.
God isn't our enemy, and God doesn't hate any of us. Our sins were made null and void, on that selfless and sinless sacrifice that He made for all of us. All we have to do, is accept it.
But the conspiracy is in all the world's religions. All these divisions, are from Satan. It muddies the waters, and gets us to fight with each other, when we could be united in Jesus Christ. That means that anything which touches upon the subject of spiritual truths, is a lie if it isn't from God. That isn't an accusation, it is a dire warning of a loving God, who is trying to get you to heed His call.
I don't want to put you into a church. I don't want your money. I don't want anything except to serve God. Because according to the bible, we're all brothers and sisters. When you start to see this, it makes you love other people as you would "one of your own". We are not enemies, and I am not persecuting you. I am trying to get you to see this as the truth, not fight with you.
And this is also why I am so passionate about this. I love ya like a brother or sister, and I'm just trying to get you to see one thing: If the bible is true then Satan hates you, and persecutes you, and tries to get you to curse God... Because he can't beat God. And that's the truth.
So the next best thing for Satan to do, is to get us to fight amongst ourselves, and that is why Satan is so dangerous. Jesus named our common enemy by name; and Satan knows the name of Jesus Christ, and fears it, and all his fallen angels too.
God is not your enemy, but Satan is. He is the father of lies, a murderer from the beginning.
Forgiveness of sins.
Religion puts limits on God. Religions blur the lines on what exactly a "saved" person is, and divides people into groups.
So if I had to put a label on myself, I would be more like "Berean" Christian or Messianic Jew. But I'm not going to put a single label on it, or treat it like a new religion. I don't need to, because it is what it is. God wants us united under Him, not some "church" made of human hands, not some mere building. God wants to dwell with us. He wants to walk beside us, and pick us up when we fall down.
That is why Jesus says that He and He alone is the way, the truth, and the life. Not because He is arrogant, or a tyrant. He isn't forcing us to worship Him, He is asking us to. Out of the love of our hearts. Why is that so hard to do? Would we prefer to die in the lake of fire? It is a choice, and one that you make for yourself.
Satan's conspiracies, are all over the place. I will write about those later, because this is getting to be a long enough article already.
Just know that God isn't against you, God is against sin and evil. So if you are not sinful or evil, God is not against you. The problem is, that anyone who thinks that they haven't sinned, is a lair. We're all sinners, me included.
"John 3:16" is more than just a pop-culture reference, it is a bible verse, and it actually means something beautiful:
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
That's it, and that is all there is to it. Once you start on that path, don't get off it. God Himself will be your teacher, and strengthen you, but only if you call out for help. But also don't think that because you might lose everything for this, doesn't mean He doesn't love you. He is trying to put you on His path, because your path isn't working. It hasn't ever really worked.
Just trust God, because trust is the basis of faith. Everything else is a conspiracy.
