How the devil plays both sides.
There is a Truther movement out there, in which many people actually unmask some conspiracies and talk a lot of truth, but if we follow them, we are no better off than if we believed the conspiracies in the first place.
Do you remember that bit in Acts of the Apostles where there is a soothsayer lady who follows Paul and Silas, telling everyone that they were servants of God and shewing the way of salvation? This is Acts 16:16, by the way. Have a look, it is interesting. She says true things but Paul can tell that she has a demon and casts it out, in the name of Jesus Christ.
This shows us how the devil’s servants will be perfectly happy to tell quite a lot of truth in order to get in on the inside, and then subvert. This is one of the ways how infiltration and subversion has happened in many (read “most, to a greater or lesser extent”) churches. The bad guys only wear black hats and the good guys wear white hats in the cowboy films, in real life it is far more nuanced and complex. In the second of the Temptations of Christ, Satan shows him all the worldly powers and says he can hand them to Him if He will only bow to him, which he does not. But Jesus also does not deny that these worldly powers were indeed put under Satan’s control. We therefore can assume that Satan has his emissaries in charge in many, many situations and has infiltrated all sorts of situations and he plays the cards and rolls his loaded dice on both sides of the game. There are many portions of scripture where the same is inculcated to us in God’s word for us.
You get these shady elites who wield power and right now are making governments borrow from them so that the power of Antichrist to demand mandatory vaccines and chips, and the movement to world single government and universal false religion will be facilitated because the countries which pretend to democracies will have mortgaged themselves to the hilt to these people. China etc are long since owned by them. These are hurrying in the scenario we read of in Revelation. Then you get other shady Truther people who, like the soothsayer in Acts, point this out, and yet blame the wrong thing, they blame the Jews, they blame the Lizards, they blame the Christians, the Communists, the Trumpists, the Chinese, the Zionists, the Muslims, all sorts. And they are able to find fault with all these groups and make apparently convincing arguments, so that a Christian could easily get defocused. They just don’t ever explain how Satan is playing everyone and how the only way out is to turn with all one’s heart to the Biblical Jesus and find Him in prayer. Whoever understands this has the main explanation and has the compass to hold onto to come out of all of this safe. Who doesn’t have this focus but tries to unravel the various paths and mechanisms of this evil in their own strength quickly gets lost.
And David Icke’s role, and not only his, there are quite a few others, is to look like the guy who has the answers, and all that happens is people end up believing in the Age of Aquarius coming which will allow humanity to gain enough positive vibrations to unite and defeat the alien lizards. At the same time he brings out all the old chestnuts of how people have had legitimate grievances with the Church (usually because of some Satanic infiltration by the same one who is playing Icke). So in the end he presents a complete alternative, Christless gospel. Every lie has some truth, or it has no power. There is indeed a “reptile”, whom the Bible calls the old Serpent. But this is Satan, and not some gang of aliens. There are vibrations of course in everything, waves of all frequencies are passing through all molecules all the time, but then putting ideas like “good and bad” onto these is spurious and unhelpful. It is not relevant to what we need to know to be saved. The answer in Jesus Himself, the Way, the Truth and the Life. We don’t need “truthers”, “truthing”, etc, we need the One who is the Truth. We need to embrace the living Christ in repentance and faith.
The Name of Jesus has power over all demons, those on the one side and on the other, and on the one behind all these subterfuges and nuances of evil. Paul only needed this one name of Jesus Christ, the name that is above all other nomenclature, whether natural or supernatural.
That’s how it works, my friends, and I delight over every brother or sister who gets it.
