Advice for those caught in the Hall of Mirrors

Isaiah on Conspiracies

“Do not call conspiracy
everything this people calls a conspiracy;
do not fear what they fear,
and do not dread it.
The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy,
he is the one you are to fear,
he is the one you are to dread.
and He will be a sanctuary…”
– Isaiah 8:12-14

I was reading the Bible this morning and the brakes slammed on when I read the word “conspiracy”

On this blog, we deal with conspiracies all the time. We are constantly told all kinds of things about conspiracies. The list of things to fear or dread is too long to count.
I stopped and pondered about how this might apply to people today. The heart of the message is to not fear or dread the things the world fears. Instead, we are to fear the Lord.
And He will be a sanctuary to us,
a hiding place, a refuge.

A bit of correction

As Dr. Eowyn pointed out, we must not be foolish and think there are no conspiracies. As the saying goes, “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you.”
We have a panoply of genuine conspiracies. From the Bilderbergs, to the Bohemian Grove summer boys camp, to the dark actions of the CIA, to the Denver Airport, to the hidden agenda of FEMA (You didn’t think they were really there to help after a hurricane, did you?), we are outmanned and outflanked.
There have been conspiracies in this world ever since the time of Nimrod, after the expulsion from Eden.
In this passage of Isaiah, the Lord instructs the prophet to tell the inhabitants of Jerusalem to ignore the evil alliance of 2 of its foes, and instead fear the wrath of God. The result of obedience would be that they would be supernaturally defended, and at peace with God. In other words, there was indeed a conspiracy, but they were not to fear it more than they feared offending their Lord. This is a universal truth.

So yes, evil people conspire. God says not to fear them

So, Rockefellers and Rothschilds, we refuse to fear you. We fear the one true and living God, who will avenge the blood of His saints, and if you don’t repent, will cast you into hell along with your father, the devil.

“Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”  – Matthew 10:28
“Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.” – Proverbs 29:25

  1. Good advice, TD.
    You wrote: “On this blog, we deal with conspiracies all the time. We are constantly told all kinds of things about conspiracies. The list of things to fear or dread is too long to count.”
    But not all conspiracies are unreal. Those who mock and bash conspiracy theories never ever mention real conspiracies like Nixon’s Watergate or the Kennedy Administration’s Operation Northwoods.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Northwoods
    Nor is reporting, blogging or asking questions about conspiracies means one is “caught in the hall of mirrors” — disoriented, lost and rudderless. I’m not! What I try to do is to lead our readers out of, not into, your metaphorical “hall of mirrors”.
    Nor do I “fear or dread,” for I have “put on the armor of God” and I “hold faith as a shield.” With Christ on my side, I have nothing to fear.

     
    • Thank you, Dr. Eowyn. I completely agree, and will edit the post to make that point. I posted in haste today after being almost a week without a computer.
      The real message for me is not that there are no conspiracies, because we know there are some big bad ones, but that we must not live in fear. If we fear the Lord, we will have His peace.

       
  2. Didn’t the Lord say if you fear God, that’s the beginning of wisdom? Also, he tells us in Proverbs 1:33 “But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.”

     
  3. Being grounded in Christ and the Bible is the benchmark for The Truth.
    But that grounding will not prevent the gates to be thrown open and those who trust us to protect them to be ravaged and plundered.
    We’re talking the material world here, not eternal life.
    In the Big Picture of the War with Satan, we already know who wins. God does, but we ain’t there yet we’re here on Earth.
    Satan has the latest technology and techniques to deliver his lies. Conspiracy Theories are brought forth to either forewarn us so we may defend ourselves or provided to undermine our trust and weaken our Faith. With only a few rare exceptions, all information we receive has been manufactured for our consumption with our reactions and the consequences forecast like the path of hurricanes. Sometimes something will leak, and sometimes they will guess wrong. Like Benghazi, like ACA. They will stop at nothing to distort the truth to make these things go away.
    They’ve been marketing it and we’ve been lapping it up for quite a few years.
    We are so screwed.

     
  4. AMEN. I fear not what is to come because I am grounded in the Lord Jesus Christ. We talk on a daily basis, sometimes several times a day. May he return quickly!!!

     
  5. Much of what we see today in the world that is attributed to conspiracy is simply the hand of God fulfilling prophecy, and arranging events for the end times.
    That being said, if you love Him, and are trying your best to do His will, it is He who is your sanctuary.
    I realize that many don’t agree with me on many issues, but true believers, those who are doing, not just hearing the word, aren’t all that plentiful in regard to world population numbers, and to think that the world is going to love us because we love Him is an exercise in denial. The world hated Jesus, the world killed Jesus, and He warned us we would be about as popular as a hair in a biscuit.
    TD, nice job.

     
    • “…….simply the hand of God fulfilling prophecy….” Amen. Has anyone but me noticed the East Coast getting storm, after storm, after storm…..? I believe this is the hand of God judging us. Same goes for the severe drought in California, along the West coast. Same goes for ISIS/ISIL/IS being allowed to swarm across the Middle East conquering huge parcels of land. Same goes for our leaders simply ignoring this situation and in fact in some cases actually helping the enemy. Revelations will happen!
      I know there are those on this site you do not believe and think we are waiting for some genie to drop out of Heaven and solve all our problems. To them I say: 1) I will be praying for you; 2) I would rather believe and find out I am wrong, than not believe and find out YOU are right. It means the difference between spending eternity in Heaven or Hell. How much simpler can you get.

       
  6. This verse came to mind, regarding this post and the previous post about the cover of The Economist.
    2 Corinthians 2:11
    11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
    And these verses:
    Ephesians 5:11
    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
    13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
    14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
    15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
    16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
    I agree though, that God is always in control. 🙂

     
  7. …how to be aware and help others be aware so as not to be suckered by all the deliberate lies and subterfuge,( conspiracies ) and YET stay centered in God. Not an easy feat, or even possible I think sometimes; to be looking at the dark yet stay in the light. Thank you TD and Dr. Eowyn. I envy the saints who don’t concern themselves with worldy things and who’s doing what. They have that channel to heaven open where they take all direction and safety from. Hard to have a foot in both worlds.
