CONSPIRACY THEORIES: Conspiracy in the Bible

Conspiracy in the Bible

“And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.  And they were more than forty which had made this conspiracy.”
–Acts 23:12-13

7 CONSPIRACIES IN THE BIBLE

Though the world desperately tries to fool the masses into believing there are no conspiracies, the masses know these conspiracies exist.

Conspiracies have ALWAYS existed.

They are a part of history, of law and of the Bible. Their record is easy to find, IF the reader is interested in the truth.

Most are not interested and so, they continue to be fooled by wicked men who tell them conspiracies are a figment of their imagination.

Part One covered 10 general observations about such conspiracies and the men who seek to indoctrinate the masses against this basic fact of life.

Part Two will cover some conspiracies which are not only found in the Bible, but SPECIFICALLY called “conspiracies.

Part Three will conclude with more observations on what the Corporate Media and government have called “conspiracy theories.”

TRUE CONSPIRACIES: End Times Conspiracies are a Reality


1- A conspiracy in the land of Israel by the prophets, and priests of the churches, as well as the political leaders and the people, against the poor and needy and oppressed  foreigners.

“Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. 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.

Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.

Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.

And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken.

The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully.”
–Ezekiel 22:24-29

2 – A conspiracy in the land of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Some believe this to be the same conspiracy spoken of by Ezekiel. Others believe this to be another rebellion against God altogether.

“And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.

Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.”
–Jeremiah 11:9-11

3 – The conspiracy against wicked King Amaziah.

“Now it came to pass, after that Amaziah was come from the slaughter of the Edomites, that he brought the gods of the children of Seir, and set them up to be his gods, and bowed down himself before them, and burned incense unto them.

Wherefore the anger of the LORD was kindled against Amaziah, and he sent unto him a prophet, which said unto him, Why hast thou sought after the gods of the people

Now after the time that Amaziah did turn away from following the LORD they made a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem; and he fled to Lachish: but they sent to Lachish after him, and slew him there.”
–2 Chronicles 25:13-14,27

“And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived after the death of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years. Now they made a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem: and he fled to Lachish; but they sent after him to Lachish, and slew him there.”
–2 Kings 14:17,19

Conspiracy in the Bible

4- The conspiracy of Pekah to murder and replace King Pekahiah of Israel; and the later conspiracy of Hoshea to murder King Pekah and take over as the king of Israel.

This is actually two separate conspiracies involving King Pekah: one which placed him into power and another which removed him from power.

“In the fiftieth year of Azariah king of Judah Pekahiah the son of Menahem began to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned two years.

But Pekah the son of Remaliah, a captain of his, conspired against him, and smote him in Samaria, in the palace of the king’s house, with Argob and Arieh, and with him fifty men of the Gileadites: and he killed him, and reigned in his room. In the two and fiftieth year of Azariah king of Judah Pekah the son of Remaliah began to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned twenty years.

And Hoshea the son of Elah made a conspiracy against Pekah the son of Remaliah, and smote him, and slew him, and reigned in his stead, in the twentieth year of Jotham the son of Uzziah.”
–2 Kings 15:23,25-26, 30

5 – The conspiracy of King Hoshea of Israel against the king of Assyria.

Hoshea conspired with the King of Egypt to help Hoshea throw off the rule of Assyria from Israel. Shalmaneser, the king of Assyria, discovered the conspiracy and acted accordingly.

“In the twelfth year of Ahaz king of Judah began Hoshea the son of Elah to reign in Samaria over Israel nine years. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, but not as the kings of Israel that were before him.

Against him came up Shalmaneser king of Assyria; and Hoshea became his servant, and gave him presents.

And the king of Assyria found conspiracy in Hoshea: for he had sent messengers to So king of Egypt, and brought no present to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year: therefore the king of Assyria shut him up, and bound him in prison.
–2 Kings 17:1,3-4

The king of Assyria besieged Israel and carried away the inhabitants to Assyria.

King Hoshea, like King Pekah, came into power via a conspiracy and departed in the same manner.

Conspiracy in the Bible

6 – The conspiracy to murder Paul the apostle.

“And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.  And they were more than forty which had made this conspiracy.”
–Acts 23:12-13

MORE: Acts 23

7 – Of all the conspiracies found in the Bible, perhaps the best-known is the end times conspiracy of Psalm 2.

“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.”
–Psalm 2:2-3

Wanting to free themselves from the restrictions which God’s Word puts upon man, the rulers of the earth conspire to throw off these “bands” and “cords” and rebel against God Almighty and His Anointed, Jesus Christ.

Churches singing “praise and worship” songs about Break Every Chain evoke the images of Psalm 2.

When these songs sing of “There’s an army rising up,” it should bring to mind that the only end times armies raising up before Jesus returns are the ones commanded by the dragon and the man of sin.

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
–Revelation 13:4,7

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

“And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse [Jesus], and against his army.”
–Revelation 16:13-14,16 & Revelation 19:19

Where do these armies come from? They belong to the kings of the earth, who are under the sway of the dragon. Does all of this happen in one day?

Or do men take counsel together and plan for it in secret?

The Bible says the whole earth will worship the dragon [Satan]. Where does the whole earth worship the dragon?  In the streets? Does Satan undertake a massive church-building program?

Or do those who dwell upon the earth worship him in the churches which are even now preparing the way for the man of sin?

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
–Revelation 13:4,8

This vast end times conspiracy to overthrow God the Father and God the Son (Jesus), is at work presently. This conspiracy has been as work for the last 2000 years.

“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work”
–2 Thessalonians 2:7

Some may ask, “How could such a conspiracy exist for so long? No human could do accomplish such a thing!”

Those who say such things would be right: no HUMAN could accomplish such a far-reaching conspiracy.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
–Ephesians 6:12

This last great conspiracy of wickedness is fronted by evil men who desire money, power and control. But behind these evil men are the “rulers of the darkness of this world.”

This last great conspiracy before Jesus returns will be successful for a season (3 1/2 years or 42 months).

“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”
–Daniel 7:25

“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
–Revelation 13:5,7

Then, Jesus returns, crushes this rebellion and assumes dominion over the entire earth.

There are a few other conspiracies listed in the Bible and specifically called “conspiracy.

Notable among these conspiracies: the son of King David, Absalom, who rebelled against his father and almost wrested the kingdom of Israel away from David.

“And Absalom sent for Ahithophel the Gilonite, David’s counsellor, from his city, even from Giloh, while he offered sacrifices. And the conspiracy was strong; for the people increased continually with Absalom.”
–2 Samuel 15:12

The full story of the rebellion of Absalom is told in 2 Samuel 15-19.

Another conspiracy (though not specifically called a “conspiracy“) was when the Pharisees met in secret and passed a death sentence without cause on Jesus Christ.

This occurred after Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.

“Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.
John 11:45-53

The Bible speaks of conspiracies past and conspiracies yet to come.

Jesus or the dragon: which side will the reader take?

Tender Mercies of the Lord: Will Not Always Be Available

“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
John 20:31

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
