PREPARING FOR THE MAN OF SIN:
THE MERCHANTS OF FEAR
There is a campaign in the media, in the government, in the so-called Christian mass media to discredit alternate explanations to the approved, official party line. To this end, an incredible amount of time and resources are being poured into discrediting what is termed “conspiracy theories.”
The Age of Groupthink is upon us and GroupThink absolutely hates anyone thinking on their own (this includes referring to the Bible). One way to enforce conformity is to degrade independent thinking as “dangerous” (what the old Soviet Union did) OR to label it “conspiracy theory” and ridicule it (the American Way!).
Groupthink works best once an atmosphere of fear is created. Once fear has gripped the population, the herd looks to the media/government/church/authority for answers to their fear–whatever that fear is: war, disease, financial chaos.
The Corporate Media has created an atmosphere of fear. The apostate Church is taking full advantage of that fearful atmosphere to move the pew-sitters closer to the man of sin. Countless websites are devoted to providing dates when World War will start–or the how’s and why’s of the latest conspiracy.
And fake “watchmen” fan the flames of fear in order to herd their unsuspecting supporters closer to where false converts are supposed to be when the end times fireworks start.
If one is a true believer, one has peace.
Regardless of the 24/7 EBOLA scare stories or claimed beheadings or blood moons or comets hitting the earth or ISIS maneuvers: those in the Father’s hand know real peace.
True followers of Jesus know what must come to pass. They also are assured that the Father has everything under control. True believers also know what the Bible says about overcoming the deception of the dragon and the schemes of man in the end times.
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
It’s that “loved not their lives unto the death” that will give the true followers of Jesus so much power. Unfortunately, the vast majority of those who now inhabit the churches are looking for “a way out” or some escape mechanism so they can avoid physical persecution.
Which is too bad.
God has set up the end times to sift the wheat from the chaff; to separate those walking by faith from those walking by sight. What God’s Word says is to come upon the earth is for the specific reason of dividing those who talk the talk from those who walk the walk.
The vast majority of those who hang out in American churches will miss the chance to stand up for Jesus when it most means something–both for themselves and others. Not because they will be sucked out of Babylon before the guillotines begin. No, the vast majority of those whose lips proclaim “Jesus” will be sitting in the whore church of the dragon.
Those who will not live for Jesus now will find it nearly impossible to die for Him later.
When the guillotines start up, they will be silent.
But they deceive themselves: that if the need ever arose (and it never will since God doesn’t want to beat up His bride), they would stand up tall for their Savior!
We live in a time of deception.
One sees many words devoted to the front men in the dragon’s end times game: the bankers, the Illuminati, the Jesuits, to name three of the more popular ones. Believers ought to remember that these are deceptions from an enemy which Jesus warned would employ deception in the end times.
There is much deception these days, a great deal of it coming from sources which claim to be Christian.
The Dark Side of End Times Teaching – from a magazine which goes by the name of Ministry Today. Like so much else these days, the article is a piece of sham Christianity. This piece declares its source early on when it produces one Marilyn Manson (proud antichrist musician whose birth name is Brian Warner).
…shock musician Marilyn Manson reveals what years of false teaching about the return of Christ–and the apocalyptic conspiracy theories that enhance such teaching–did to him. His teachers left him feeling abused, cheated and eventually caused him to reject Christianity. He would later say: “I blame everything I do on Christianity. So why aren’t they out there arresting the preachers I was raised listening to, or the Sunday school teachers?”
Here is the question which pretend Christians forget to ask.
WHY would a magazine purporting to be about Christian Ministry produce as evidence for its thesis (bad end times teaching causes Christians to turn to Satan) Marilyn Manson’s testimony?
Here’s a few bonus questions.
Why should we believe anything a purported devil-worshiper (Mr. Warner) says? Are his pronouncements in Ministry Today the gospel truth? Is Marilyn having a change of heart? Is he trying to help Christians now by warning them about what supposedly happened to him? Why would a “Christian” author/magazine use the testimony of someone who not only blasphemes God, but does it for financial gain? Since Warner/Manson has on occasion given different reasons for his supposed hatred of Christianity, why should the reader believe his latest version?
The article–which really is a piece of work–goes on to condemn bad teaching (which is a good thing). However, Ministry Today fails to address one of the major problems: most of the “bad teaching” (in Mr. Warner’s case, the example is used of equating the mark of the beast with UPC bar codes) has been thoughtfully provided by the Christian mass media–such as Ministry Today.
This is a sucker’s game: the Christian mass media has circulated scare stories (the mark of the beast is a bar code; the mark of the beast is a RFID chip; the mark of the beast is genetic alteration, etc.) which get picked up and repeated by its unsuspecting readers. THEN, Ministry Today bashes those people for listening to the pretend Christians in the “Christian” mass media in the first place.
Sounds like an argument for dropping one’s subscription to outfits like Ministry Today.
The endgame for this piece is much the same as most other similar ones claiming to “help” Christians away from those bad, old conspiracy theorists. Feigned disbelief that the government–the government I say!–would have anything in mind but the best interests of Americans.
It is a mind-set that brought us the belief that the U.S. government intentionally killed civilians on Ruby Ridge, in Waco and in Oklahoma City as part of what they believe is a one-world government plot found in the book of Revelation, or what is commonly called the “New World Order.” For this community, our own government was complicit in the attack upon the Twin Towers and the Pentagon on 9/11.
Because if one can’t trust “our own government,” who can one trust?
The article goes on to extensively quote Marilyn Warner or Brian Manson or whoever he really is; it also warns people that satanists can’t be trusted. (But their testimony CAN be trusted–that’s why MT used so much of it!)
The true believer might want to keep this in mind about such media, articles and authors.
The Bible doesn’t warn about second-rate musicians with satanic schticks in the last days.. Scripture does however spend considerable time warning of the dangers of fake Christians.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
“For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.”
The man of sin will even come from among such an apostate Church that looks like Christianity–but is from the dragon.
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”
And one can rest assured that when he arrives, the man of sin will be celebrated by the very same “Christian” mass media which issues so many pretend warnings today–especially those dripping with attitude who label alternate versions of events “conspiracy theories.“
In fact, the one one message that the antichrist Corporate Media (Satan’s Mouthpiece), Big Entertainment, Big Government, pop culture and the apostate, pseudo-Christian mass media and Church all agree on is:
Conspiracy Theories = BAD.
Why does the reader suppose that ANY alternate explanations to the OFFICIAL VERSIONS (including the Bible) is being subjected to a systematical, universal campaign of ridicule?
Let’s call it a little preemptive poisoning the well, shall we?
The Bible clearly states that the man of sin will not be operating alone but will have an entire system of government, finance and religion at this command. Does this vast web spring up overnight? What’s one to call such a machinery? We obviously can’t call it a conspiracy–that would offend the sensibilities of so many wearing the latest in sheep’s clothing.
Psalm 2 does warn of an end times conspiracy which will attempt to overthrow the laws of God and His anointed (Jesus). Better not pass along Psalm 2 to the Ministry Today folks.
There might be an article warning readers of it in the next issue.
“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
