Christians, Conspiracies, Faith and Love
“...but the just shall live by his faith.” Habakkuk 2:4.
Conspiracy theories abound and are being thrown at us from every angle. Recently
I was provided with a link to a two hour video that if true would probably scare
the most hardened atheist. The video begins by proclaiming that all our past
presidents had been puppets clear back to, but excluding, John F. Kennedy. This
recent conspiracy points to multi-billionaires, the bankers of the world, as the
ones holding the puppet strings of our government leaders. It seems, according
to this theory, these greedy fiends are the ones behind the push to a one world
government. These theorists say there are concentration camps being built all
over the US to imprison those who know the truth. They are constructed and will
be utilized to keep the nonconformist silent while these evil and maniacal men
and women pour out their treachery on the rest of unsuspecting mankind. Is this
truth or fiction?
Conspiracy theorists have been around forever it seems, and they always appear
when times get tough. Our economy is in the tank and our government leaders seem
bent on replacing the US Constitution with some other form of government; no one
really seems to be able to put their finger on just what form of government
that’s going to be, whether it’s new designation will be that of a socialistic
or communistic form of government is yet to be seen. To the theorists, the
American republic we once knew and loved is all but washed up.
Certainly we can clearly see there’s a movement afoot to eliminate our US
Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. We see them both being
trampled and trashed more and more every day. Worst of all, in my mind, is
what’s happening to the Christian Church in America . The signs are so painfully
obvious yet biblical. Clearly, the apostasy of the Church is nigh at hand. Yes,
absolutely something evil this way comes. Those who have no faith in God have no
hope for anything better. But the true born again believer, those who are “in
Christ” are justified and thus living in faith, right?
My brethren, do yourselves a huge favor and stop listening to men or women who
have their own agendas apart from God’s. Whether they be our government leaders
or conspiracy theorists, or even some of our church leaders, stop this lunacy
and let’s remember what God told Habakkuk “The Just shall live by his faith”.
Our faith is in Jesus Christ and also our trust. Many of these conspiracy
theories seem to be in line with Bible prophecy, so where better to turn than to
God and His word for the details? I’m not saying that these conspiracies can’t
be true, but that we should approach each new theory through the lens of
scripture always remembering in whom we’ve placed our faith and trust.
God gave us His word to study, to immerse ourselves in, and to obtain the truth.
God is truth and He puts more emphases on the truth of His word than on His very
name. That’s why it is so important that we live by every word that proceedeth
out of the mouth of God. “...that he might make thee know that man doth not live
by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD
doth man live.” Deuteronomy 8:3. Even when our Lord was being tempted in the
wilderness for forty days it was God’s word that He always fell back on as He
rebuked the Devil.
Aren’t Christians being tempted each day? Where should we turn if not to the
Lord? Will we see the times we live in worsen? Probably. If we are worrying and
fretting now while we are still living in abundance, what’s going to happen to
our faith and our witness as we see the US crumble around us? The Just shall
live by faith. Who are the just? If you are a born again believer you are
justified and you now live by faith.
The Bible is a history lesson, and it has taught us plenty about mankind’s past
history, and interestingly we are also given a look at the future history of all
mankind. We call the future history prophecy. Prophecy is all through the Bible;
God uses prophecy to authenticate His word. Whether we are inundated with
conspiracy theories or evil ungodly people pushing to realign this planet as a
one world government everything has been written down for us before hand so we
wouldn’t be surprised. My point is, God will not allow anything to happen in
this world that doesn’t conform to His plan, His will for the future of mankind.
Sincerely studying the Bible will probably become the national pastime of most
born again believers as we traverse these last of days on planet earth. Staying
in fellowship and prayer are basics that should never be neglected. Building
strong relationships with our brethren will bring huge blessings and benefits to
both us and them. God wants us to come together as His children and unite in our
common faith. That faith is in Jesus Christ His Son.
There are going to be many aspects of the end times that we disagree on, this is
painfully evident, but those disagreements don’t need to tear us apart. Satan
loves to get Christians bickering amongst ourselves. My brethren this should not
be so. The just are living by faith in Christ and that fact alone becomes our
uniting tie that binds us together. We are going to need that binding more and
more as we watch these last days drawing to a close.
When will the Church be raptured? No one knows. The heat of persecution is
already upon us though, and most believers are already feeling it. What am I
speaking about? Take a look at how the ungodly have infiltrated our government
and its programs. These people are now pushing their evil attitudes and agendas
to replace what was once a free country with new radical socialism. The left and
centrist of this country are the antagonists that will stop at nothing to
eradicate Christians and our beliefs from being a part of their new enlightened
Our faith and our God given rights to oppose anything that is contrary to God’s
laws are being systematically discouraged and even eliminated from the American
scene. Oh, and of course our newly elected president has some wonderful new
agendas that he’s seeing fit to push down the throats of the spiritually blind
populace. Please consider that anyone who is opposed to God’s laws will be the
ones ratcheting up the heat of persecution upon the Christian community. Again
we turn to the book of Habakkuk for God’s response to all this evil. “The just
shall live by his faith”. God makes it easy to understand, we are His and we are
justified in His sight. Therefore, we shall live out our lives here on earth by
Will America take her place among the trash heaps of discarded past
civilizations that refused to humble themselves or to show any respect or
reverence for their Creator God? Time will tell. I’ve heard it said that if God
doesn’t judge America , He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah . Wow, God
really let Sodom and Gomorrah have it. Just what kind of judgment might He have
in store for a country that began so strong in the Christian faith and yet has
now done a 180 degree turn and is currently engulfed in unholy, godless, evil,
activities, so perverse that even Sodom would blush? Since God knows the future
of all events, there’s no doubt His plan for America ’s judgment is already set.
Christians need not fear God’s fierce wrath, many other Americans should.
My brethren, we have a wonderful Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. He came into
this world to save us from our sin and to give us life more abundantly. That
said, why do we worry so about the future? If we believe that God is in control
then whatever happens to America , or the world for that matter, is up to God.
All our faithless worries are an abomination since believers are the just who
shall live by faith.
First and foremost our focus in these last days, as always, should be on our
Lord Jesus and secondly on the lost, not on conspiracy theories. Believers know
the final outcome of all this evil that abounds, but what of those who are still
living without Jesus? What must be going through their minds as they witness the
systematic destruction of our once favored way of life? Some, when they hear the
truth, will turn from their wicked ways, but what if no one tells them the
truth? When a family member or even a friend dies the last thing any of us will
want to hear ourselves saying is, “Why didn’t I tell you, before it was too
Are you one of the just that shall live by his faith? I know there are many road
blocks impeding our movements as we try to adhere to our Saviour’s will. By
faith we don’t allow Satan to instill fear in us. By faith we won’t allow him to
establish a wall of separation between us and the lost. By faith we will allow
the Holy Spirit to lead us in all our endeavors. Worrying about what kind of
evil reaction might follow our presentation of the Gospel will be nonexistent to
those who are justified and living by faith. God will take care of the evil
things of this world as long as we are presenting the good news of the Gospel of
There’s a song that I really enjoy singing, and the chorus goes like this, “And
they will know we are Christians by our love, by our love. Yes they’ll know we
are Christians by our love”. How many lost people have seen your love today
God bless you all,
