You might ask - What in the world is happening? I have asked this question all my life. I have wondered - What is mankind thinking? Why is mankind (both individuals and world leaders, "important" people and the "little people" like us) thinking these thoughts? What are the goals and objectives of men? How does man plan to obtain these goals and objectives? Are there key "players" in the world who shape major events that the rest of us, like sheep, apparently just blindly acquiesce to without even a thought? Additionally, while observing man and asking these questions, I studied the Bible and realized that the Bible predicts certain events. How does the fulfillment of Bible prophecy transpire?
I have from a child always believed that the Bible is true. I have read what the Bible says and I have an understanding of what the Bible says will happen in the future. (It appears that this Biblical future is nearer than you might believe.) The question is - what is the relationship between the prophesied events of the Book of Revelation (and other end times prophecies) and the goals and objectives of men? How is it possible that men in pursuit of their own separate goals actually unwittingly fulfill Bible prophecy?
In the microcosm of our experience we know that we ourselves have had many personal goals and objectives, the pursuit of which has caused us much pain and misery (until the day we began to realize that we are not actually in charge, but God is in charge.) I believe the Bible refers to these as the sins of youth, a life independent from and without acknowledgement of the Almighty. I laugh at all the foolishness I personally have pursued in life. Every day I need to remind myself of this fact (because I am a flawed human being who still has a hard time accepting that I am not personally in charge of my own life and that my life is not my own. It is a daily struggle. The "flesh" does not want to surrender to God, period.) Such is the nature of man. What is true in the microcosm is also true on the geopolitical plane. What is true on Fulton Avenue is also true in Rome, Washington DC, New York, Bejing, Moscow,Teheran, Baghdad, and Jerusalem. Man can not stop "fixing" his world or making it 'better" so that his goals may be reached.
Men are selfish creatures and religious men want God to approve of and promote their "plans." Such is the nature of much "prayer" today. Religious men ask God to give them what they want. The Lord has become the Heavenly Bellhop, as my brother describes the phenomenon. A.W. Tozer put it this way -"Christ has no authority in the mainline churches." It is not about what Christ desires, it is about what we desire. Mr. Tozer said this in 1963. Not surprisingly, it is more true today than 1963. This should be expected of the Laodecian church which is described in the Book of Revelation as "neither cold nor hot" (Rev 3:15). The Laodecian church is the condition of the church just prior to the Rapture. Much of "Christianity" has become a Purpose Driven Church. The question is "whose purpose?" The Purpose Driven Church believes if I ask God, He will give me what I want (and I will still be on the throne). The Purpose Driven Church believes he can be a part of the "Master Plan." Sounds great, doesn't it?
So, become a "Christian" and you will be "successful", fulfilled, and still in charge. Such "Christians" can not be distinguished from attendees of a self-help conference. Such "Christianity" is not distinguishable from self-improvement philosophies. We know what the Bible teaches about "self."
The Purpose Driven Life applies to secularists as well. They have their goals, just like pseudo-Christians. They want to be "successful" and to be fulfilled. However admirable, however socially-conscious, however "good" the goals may be; one who pursues these goals hard enough is susceptible to being manipulated. The problem is - man does not know the real Master of the "Master Plan" he is following. The Master could be the "angel of light." (2 Cor 11:14) Once ambition, even religious or moral ambition, gets hold of a man, he is headed down the path to destruction. Once a man is seduced by his own pride down the road of ambition, unless the Lord stops him, he will end in spiritual destruction. Such is the nature of following the angel of light. Such is the nature of "conspiracy" in the world we live. "Conspiracy" is spiritual deception whereby the pride of man is used to lure him into an enterprise.
The Bible say evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. (2 Tim 3:13) Those doing the deceiving are actually deceived themselves. This is the nature of "conspiracy" in today's world. If a deceiver is deceived himself, then, there is a "conspiracy" (and a well conceived one) at work at a high level above even the deceiver. You can say there is no "conspiracy" if you want. The Bible says And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore, it is no great thing if his ministers be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; (2 Cor 11:14-15) The ultimate "conspiracy" is that Satan is transformed into an angel of light. All other seductive "conspiracies" derive from this original "conspiracy."
Within a "conspiracy" there is always an overriding purpose usually unknown to the participants below the initiating level. Each individual joins the "conspiracy" motivated by his own "moral" clock (aka pride, along with its various manifestations). The ministers of Satan are operating within the realm of men. This is the operational "conspiracy." At each successive level the participants within that level know what they are doing and why they are doing it. Above their individual levels, the participants have no clue of the real motivations.
The "conspiracy" scenario must of necessity exist on a national level as well as on an individual level. For example, Rev 20:3 says that [Satan, after being bound for 1000 years] should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled. This can only be true if his "conspiracy" had already deceived the nations.
That there are angelic beings who have political authority over nations is demonstrated in Daniel 10:20 -prince of Persia and prince of Grecia. These princes are not Cyrus and Alexander the Great.
These princes are agents of the god of this world [who] hath blinded the minds of them which believe not.
(2 Cor 4:4); in other words, fallen agents that rebelled with Satan. See Isaiah 14:7-14. These same princes, literally, rule over these nations, manifestly so as the tribulation period begins. Notice in Dan 10:20 that the angel who came to Daniel had to fight with the prince of Persia. Therefore, there are good angels and bad angels and they literally fight. The authority of bad angels is passed on to the human being that occupies political power within the angel's realm. Satan has authority over the nations (implemented through his angels and their chain of command). If Satan did not have authority over the nations, the offer he made to tempt Jesus Christ would not have been legitimate (the devil taketh him up into an exceedinig high mountain and showeth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and saith unto him, all these things will I GIVE THEE, if thou wilt fall down and worship me (Mat 4:8-9)
So, if Satan controls the kingdoms of this world, then, the men who rule the nations are subject to his authority.
In the book of Job, Satan appears before God and obtains permission to do certain things to Job. Satan obtains the permission from God Himself.
And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put forth not thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD. (Job 1:12)
Since Satan is carrying out his plan to take the world into tribulation and since he can only do so with the permission of the LORD and since the LORD knows the end from the beginning,(Isa 46:10), is this not a conspiracy?
How can you say you believe in Bible prophecy and also say you do not believe in conspiracy? It would be fair to say that the world is in a mad rush to charge over the cliff into destruction (look at the policies of the US government in Iraq). How did this tragedy begin? Was it with the Neocons influencing the White House? Probably. If you do a little research you find that the policies of the Whitehouse were railroaded by the Neocons. Who influenced the Neocons? Was it the Theocons? In other words, was there a spiritual origin to the Neocon manipulation of the Whitehouse?
You already know the answer to this question and that is what this page attempts to describe.
From the beginning it has been the subtle, if not outright, implication of this website that the 9-11 catalyst was part of a plan to change the geopolitical landscape. It has been postulated that Rome used this conflict to become the arbiter of East-West reunification. It was a grand geopolitical strategy. We know there is a grand strategy which includes the eventual destruction of the United States as we know it (because the Jesuit Malachi Martin documents it in his 1989 book The Keys of this Blood, Simon and Schuster). At around 9:00AM on 9-11 I was sitting in the chair waiting on the dentist to do my checkup when the dental assistant runs in and says "they have crashed planes into the World Trade Center." I said to myself (before I left that chair and before I turned on the television), "They have done it."
You see, I had read Malachi Martin's book in 1991 and had written a small manuscript myself in 1992-3 (no small part of which was Martin's book). On page 46 of this unpublished manuscript I wrote-
The gullibility of the American public is helping the [intelligence community] to gain control over the American people by creating demand ... for increased federal control over their lives to stop terrorism (for one thing).I did not publish the manuscript because the strategy of the anti-church (described in Martin's book) was not something I wanted to promote. So, the 300 page book served as reference material only for my further studies.
Now (as it turns out) we no longer have to theorize about the reality of the Neocons and Theocons. The debate about the matter has made it into the public forum. On a page currently not accessible due to "site rebuilding" (but you can find other reference to the neocons and theocons. www.firstthings.com/onthesquare/?p=518
I read and recorded a few months ago the following-
The line was developed at great length by Jacob Heilbrunn in "Neocon v. Theocon" in response to the brouhaha surrounding the famous (some say infamous) First things symposium on the judicial usurpation of politics in 1996. Heilbrunn discerned the "new fault line on the right."
This war is deeply personal. On one side are the mostly Jewish neoconservatives, a fairly small group of ex-New York leftists [read- holdovers from Vatican II] who have wielded influence greatly beyond their numbers through sheer intellectual energy... Now challenging the neocons is an equally small (and equally ambitious, and equally disputatious) group of what might be called theocons-- mostly Catholic intellectuals who are attempting to construct a Christian theory of politics that directly threatens the entire neoconservative philosophy. This attempt, in the eyes of at least some of the neocons, also directly threatens Jews. [authors note- can you hear the covenant with hell and death emerging?] What makes the matter all the more painful for both sides is that, until recently, the neocons and the theocons were, for the best of political reasons, the best of friends...
[author's note- duh-huh, nothing is inconvenient when it comes to achieving your own goals. What you just read, but perhaps did not realize it, was this- The Vatican is now going to partner with the Muslims against Israel. They used the Neocons to set the table and the Theocons will redefine and finish the job.]
What was new about the First Things symposium was the attempt to fashion a cogent, serious and popular intellectual framework for these ideas- to render respectable ideas that intellectuals had come to regard as the province of the radical right and booboisie. Pat Buchanan and Bob Dornan and Phyllis Schafly had never threatened the neoconservatives because they didn't compete on the same plane. This, though, was an attempt to do just that.
Heilbrunn noted the importance of the project "Evangelicals and Catholics Together." He observed that "the alliance has grown ever since." "As the neocons provided the intellectual muscle for the Reagan conservatism [read Vatican emergence] so now the Catholicm Thomists are providing the brainpower for the Christian Coalition."... On the surface of things, it might appear that the threat is the religious right, composed of the great unwashed of vulgar evangelicalism. But they are only the foot soldiers manipulated by clever Catholics. And at the very center of these developments are those Jewish neoconservatives. At stake in these sinister goings on is, according to TNR, nothing less than the identity of America. [And you thought Malachi Martin was teasing.]
And it is true that there is a long and darkly shadowed history of people who view America in terms of naive Protestants being manipulated by devious Catholics and even more devious Jews. In the past, however, those who propounded such views did not usually go by names such as Wieseltier, Wolfe, and Heilbrunn.
And you thought intellectuals had nothing to do with invading Iraq?
According to the webpage-
http://www.alternet.org/story/15935The three principles of neoconservativism are-
Many neoconservatives like Paul Wolfowitz are disciples of a philosopher who believed that the elite should use deception, religious fervor and perpetual war to control the ignorant masses.deception
And you thought that Bush controlled foreign policy?
Apparently, there are many who believe the "logic" for the Iraq war (and beyond) will have dramatic and devastating consequences for the United States.
One of these is Zbigniew Bzrezinski in a recent speech on February 1 to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday [Feb 1. 2007], Zbigniew Brzezinski, the national security adviser in the Carter administration, delivered a scathing critique of the war in Iraq and warned that the Bush administration’s policy was leading inevitably to a war with Iran, with incalculable consequences for US imperialism in the Middle East and internationally.
Brzezinski, who opposed the March 2003 invasion and has publicly denounced the war as a colossal foreign policy blunder, began his remarks on what he called the “war of choice” in Iraq by characterizing it as “a historic, strategic and moral calamity.”
“Undertaken under false assumptions,” he continued, “it is undermining America’s global legitimacy. Its collateral civilian casualties as well as some abuses are tarnishing America’s moral credentials. Driven by Manichean principles and imperial hubris, it is intensifying regional instability.”
Brzezinski derided Bush’s talk of a “decisive ideological struggle” against radical Islam as “simplistic and demagogic,” and called it a “mythical historical narrative” employed to justify a “protracted and potentially expanding war.”
“To argue that America is already at war in the region with a wider Islamic threat, of which Iran is the epicenter, is to promote a self-fulfilling prophecy,” he said.
Most stunning and disturbing was his description of a “plausible scenario for a military collision with Iran.” It would, he suggested, involve “Iraqi failure to meet the benchmarks, followed by accusations of Iranian responsibility for the failure, then by some provocation in Iraq or a terrorist act in the US blamed on Iran, culminating in a ‘defensive’ US military action against Iran that plunges a lonely America into a spreading and deepening quagmire eventually ranging across Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.” [Emphasis added].
an unmistakable warning to the US Congress, replete
with quotation marks to discount the “defensive” nature
of such military action, that the
Bush administration is seeking
a pretext for an attack on Iran.
