The conspiracy theorists have a theory for why everything that ever happened has happened. From the Spanish Armada in 1588 to the Terrorist Attacks 0f 9/11, they can tell you about an elite group that had interests, made plans, and did…everything that has ever happened. They will tell you that the French Revolution was run by a few dozen men who took a perfectly good, happy populace, with a kind king, made fake mobs go into the cities, kill everyone, and pretended as if the populace was a part of it all, the people only wanted their benevolent king back. Another conspiracy theory will tell you Adolf Hitler was set up by the Catholic Church.
In America, these fright freaks will explain to you how the Civil War was set up by a few people over in Brittan. You will be told the Catholics set up the Russian Revolution. You can read how Columbus was a fraud, and Washington a fake.
History is the story of the Providence of God written out so that finite man can worship their creator all the more. The Hand of the Omnipotent and ever loving king of kings overlooks every aspect of every facet of every creature, every effect, every cause, of every other object. God is sovereign, not man. Therefore we are to fear God, not man. Man is a weak and decrepit thing by the side of the God that created him.
These conspiracy men, (whoever they may be), are nothing but men. We are not to fear them as if they were the deciders of the outcome of our lives, they are not. While it may be that at certain times there have been conspiracies to bring down kingdoms and lift up rulers, this is not whom we are supposed to fear.
Of all of the “great conspiracies” real or imaginary, there is one that stands forth from this desert like a tower, or a sinkhole. Over six thousand years ago a woman stood by a tree, and a serpent began to unveil the greatest conspiracy of all time when he said “yeah hath God said” and this call would be the war cry of his soldiers down through the ages. This is the great conspiracy, Lucifer’s dream to be as God, and man’s dream to be God.
This is a true conspiracy, of one fallen angel to call many other angels as well as men to be the useful idiots of a scheme, the fuel for a machine. His declaration of war is told of in Isaiah 14: 13-14.
“For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”
Yet those who follow this wild plan, this path to ruin and destruction, have failed to read the ensuing verse; verse number 15.
“Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”
This is the world’s greatest conspiracy, the most catastrophic, and consequential, the most horrific, the one that all men most seek to follow, becoming God. Yet even though this is the great conspiracy, even though this is the master plan from which all other sinful conspiracies and all dread-fear of these schemes of men come from, we are not to fear it.
Matthew 10:28 says “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Yes, even the king of darkness is not to be feared by a true child of God, thus, if we do not fear him, why should we fear the Masons? (Or anyone else?)
2Ti 1:7 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. “
And yet we are to fear God, it is the only fear which a Christian should be controlled by, the only power that should rule a Christian’s life. Thus, let us let it control us, and while men’s plans may be allowed to rise or fall by God’s sovereignty, yet we know they can never touch a truly saved soul, and being saved is our only hope.
Through His Strength We Will Conquer,
