Monarchy Encroaching?

When I first published “They wanted a King!…or, The Evils of Monarchy” https://godhistoryandyou.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/they-wanted-a-king-or-the-evils-of-monarchy/ in July, 2009, I had no idea, really, of the…magnitude…of that topic. I could not relate at all as to why Benjamin Franklin was so concerned about the colonists possibly reverting to monarchical rule (W. Cleon Skousen, The 5000 Year Leap, p.18,19.) My thinking at that time was, after all they suffered? such spilling of blood & loss of treasure? how could anyone EVER consider monarchy again!! To me, such an action was unimaginable. And beyond foolish.

Greater awareness of what goes on in the world, and exposure to types of information once completely foreign to me, has broadened my perceptions.

Deception ever seeks to lure the innocent & unsuspecting. Some who should by now be partaking of strong meat are still desiring only milk! We need to become those who partake of meat. There are realities beyond foundations of repentance & faith, doctrines beyond resurrection & eternal judgment, and we are exhorted to move past them to perfection. (Hebrews 5:12-14, 6:1-2) When we find ourselves in places demanding that we learn to discern between good & evil, we become those partaking of meat. We may not then be so easily deceived.

I say these things because I think, based on my own experience, that this ‘leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection’ (Heb.6:1) encompasses the kinds of knowledge & understanding that are needful in, say, avoiding a return to monarchy. The desire for an earthly monarch (king) can be, at root, a spiritual error. In a world torn by hatreds, divisions & conflicts, pummeled daily with lies & fear, people want an answer. What they DON’T want is more chaos & discord in governing bodies.

They wanted a King !....or, The Evils of Monarchy

Samuel imparts the LORD’S warning

 

Israel of the prophet Samuel’s time, similarly wanting security in their own world, where fraud & corruption abounded in their ‘government’/judges (1 Samuel 8:3), wanted an answer also. Against the Lord’s extremely clear, warning counsel, they demanded…yep…a king. A monarch!

 

Although on the face of it, the demands of those people seems more like simple bull-headedness, it is not. First came a forsaking of their God. Then a serving of other gods. Webs entangle, darkness clouds vision & judgment. We may hear but not listen.

~~~

What the people did not seem to care about was that their God wanted to be their King. Israel instead wanted to be like the other nations (Multiculturalism? Globalism?), having a king of flesh & blood. Somehow they had been deceived into believing that an earthly king would be preferable, more effective than Yahweh.

There was a moment in my life when the Lord told me that I was not to look to people or organizations, insurance or company benefits, government or improving economies for my help. Though He may send help through persons or agencies, He was the Source. He wanted me to trust Him alone. . “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.” (Psalm 146:3)

…so for the peoples of our world today to reach a place of need, or desperation, where they believe any man or any agenda can bring solutions to their crises – apart from God working in & through them – would seem to be a big mistake. Yet more & more, we hear talk of global organizations/leaders/agendas that would seem to point to this very thing.

Something very big is going on. Hiding in plain sight, it gains mass & momentum.

Conceivably, at the ‘right’ time, it will manifest & the world will fall for it. It is manifesting now, and many do not see. (Perhaps they should not see, perhaps it is not necessary & would be of no benefit to anyone.) The complete manifestation would be so timed as to coincide with a readiness of the world’s peoples to welcome its arrival & its programs. IN THE MEANTIME the way is being paved by large & compelling issues: borders/immigration & climate change (whether real or a hoax). In order for a globalist agenda to be accepted, there needs to be conditions that affect all peoples & nations around the globe. Well, environmental conditions affect the entire world. And if the world was one big, borderless mass, well, there you have it, ready-made for a one world leader. No separate countries with separate cultures & governments, let’s just all blend together & be one big happy ‘family’ without individual citizen’s rights, so we can easily be taken over.

“The Old World Order was characterized by {individual, separate} monarchies, countries with independent standing armies, metals and fiat currency. The New World Order will be characterized by One-World government {single ‘monarch’?}, open borders, a world army, world court, and a world cashless credit-based currency managed via microchips.” http://www.atlanteanconspiracy.com/2008/06/new-world-order-part-1.html {parenthesis mine}

IF WE ARE NOT looking for a ‘monarch’ to provide solutions & security – if we are seeking our help from the LORD instead, and through HIS ‘agenda’, purposes & people – such events as just described wouldn’t happen. Humanity’s focus would be elsewhere, not fixating on an earthly ‘king’ & his World Court, nor so willing to buy into the narratives that accompany this.

Things God says….vs. the Shadowy Powers-that-Be behind the Scenes

“…be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”

(Romans 12:2)

~~~

The depth & scope of this kind of renewal should rock your world, if you understand the absolute need for it.

On its surface, this exhortation seems to be saying that we need to learn to think differently, in order to escape becoming a ‘bad person’. But the impact of one’s mind eventually NOT being renewed, can be fuel for so much worse than that.

~~~

According to this Scripture, people are either ‘conformed’ or ‘transformed’. I would suggest that either one or the other is eventually going to tip the scales. I would also suggest that we are probably constantly being conformed, without even realizing it. So that just as LifeLock@ safeguards a person’s data identity in cyberspace, we need Someone to constantly safeguard our true life & identity in spiritual space – in Christ.

That which is formed in the spirit will often manifest in the temporal, visible real – either as something good, something apparently good, or something evil. So that to which we are conformed is critical, at the deepest & most minute level, because it may reproduce in various ways & forms, and in same cases exponentially. (I am talking globally here.)

~~~

…so the world/earth is inhabited by people, the same people who are being conformed or transformed as we speak. It stands to reason, then, that our environments will be influenced accordingly.

“If a ruler hearkens to lies, all his servants are wicked.” (Proverbs 29:12)

 

…so suppose that there is in place a president or a prime minister who ‘hearkens to lies’ – because throughout their life, they were ‘conformed’. This does not bode well for the climate thus created by his staff & subordinates, according to the above Scripture. Unless there is present within that group some who were ‘transformed by the renewing of {their} mind’, who will question & challenge narratives & agendas…the rest of us are going to be fed false, unhealthy information and subjected to detrimental (possibly in the extreme) laws & those things which result from these laws.

At least some of the time.

A way of fighting back against this system of manipulation is the renewing of your mind. Learning a different way of evaluating events, and overhauling one’s priorities & values, is a crucial weapon in this battle. Maybe THE only weapon that will yield the kind of lasting change needed in our world today.

…and make no mistake, this starts with you.

I want to relate these ideas to globalisation.

According to David Icke, author of ‘Alice in Wonderland and the World Trade Center Disaster’, the powers behind the scenes find it relatively easy to essentially control what happens in our world. They only need to implement a few ‘key structures’. The first, says Icke, is to ‘impose the ‘norms’, what is considered right and wrong, possible or impossible, sane or insane, good or bad. Most of the people will follow those ‘norms’ without question…” (Enter: the media, advertising, ‘education’, certain religious practices…you get the picture…) Once a conditioning of the masses has taken place, peer pressure does the rest “…Facebook and almost every other major social media platform are turning hundreds of millions of people into a literal “herd” or “hive” mentality, otherwise known as “Groupthink”…” explains Michael DePinto, attorney & contributing writer on The Last Great Stand.

The imposition of the norm is then followed up by making it ‘very unpleasant’ for those who dare to buck the system. This unpleasantness can run the gamut from ridicule to ostracization and beyond.

“The most effective way to do this is to ensure that it is…a crime to be different.”

~~~

In addition to the ‘Groupthink’ agenda working to establish behavior-controlling norms, there also exists an agenda working to control our emotions. It is reported that Facebook “can basically make you feel whatever it wants you to” and   “Facebook wanted to see if it could spread feelings (“e.g., depression, happiness”) like the NIH spreads pathogens among monkeys.”

(…now that’s not a recipe for mental health distress, is it?)

~~~

…so we can get an idea of how devious conditioning could take root & spread, even worldwide. Elements that may not have our best interests as their goal could certainly be behind such actions, seeking to more easily shape and thus control populations & world agendas. Agendas that result in our detriment to their ‘increase’, i.e., power & money.

To some this logic may seem outlandish. Not to me.

…and so it seems imperative that we be at least aware of this possibility, and safeguard against it. Safeguard against being unwittingly sucked into the maelstrom of manipulations & opinions, and become shaped accordingly, to our loss. There are many paths and many ways that can be taken in this life, but you want to find & take the right One.

“…for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there which go in thereat…” (Matthew 7:13)  (Groupthink? Globalism? World system? New World Order? )

Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”. Not a way. THE Way. That way is narrow, but it leads to life (Matthew 7:14).  I have read that there is, in fact, only room for Jesus and you in that narrow Way. This does not mean that a person has to become a monk!  Jesus Himself did pray to the Father, that He did not ask for His people to be taken out of the world (but rather to be protected from the evil one {Groupthink? Globalism? World system? New World Order?} )…so don’t misunderstand the concept of being tight with Jesus Christ! But it behooves any one of us to turn to Him to find and enter the narrow Way that leads to Life, and to the “so great salvation” that is our escape (Hebrews 2:3).
