The Q Quandary: Part 1 :: By Gary Ritter

The rise of Q and his public resistance against the Deep State has sent its globalist-minded minions into a frenzy. Social media—when they even allow posts about Q—usually place warning labels to the effect that Q is an unproven tool of those who hold to far-right conspiracy theories. Q has united people of many different belief systems against the New World Order that elites desire to bring about for the purposes of power and domination.

Many Christians have joined the Q movement because—whether they understand Bible prophecy or not—they instinctively oppose the Deep State and its bad actors. Surprisingly, a large segment of the New Age community also resists the New World Order.

As a result, Christians—knowingly or not—are in league with New Agers. Another interesting aspect of this is that many of these New Agers can also be called New Gnostics.

The Bible gives us sage advice in 2 Corinthians 6:14:

“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?”

Why do I bring this up? If Christians are of the light, then what is the New Age movement? Even more so, what about the New Gnostic beliefs? Yes, they are darkness. Thus, in our common disdain for the Deep State and its eventual NWO, we as light are yoked with darkness.

Let’s examine this a little deeper to understand the scenario.

I think true Christians would all agree that the Deep State, and where it leads, is toxic and evil. I believe we who truly know the Word of God would also concur that New Age beliefs are an abomination to God. We typically associate New Age with the occult, meditation, yoga, and practices of Eastern or Hindu origin. Gnosticism, in a nutshell, turns the Bible upside down. In their understanding, God is the bad guy, and Lucifer is good. He brought wisdom and enlightenment to mankind and got a bad rap for it, while God tried to hide all this wonderful insight. In the Gnostic view, man effectively lives in the matrix of illusion and must “take the red pill” to break free into the clarity of awakening.

If the Deep State is demonic and New Age/New Gnostic is demonic, what’s going on? How could it be that satanically inspired esoteric believers are against this globalist cabal which is also satanic?

Matthew 12:25-26 tells us:

“Knowing their thoughts, [Jesus] said to them, ‘Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand. And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?'”

Would Satan divide his own house? No, and that’s the Q Quandary.

I’m teaching a Bible Discipleship class in which we’re reading through the Bible in a year. Each week I usually give a Prophecy Update to the class prior to our diving into God’s Word.

On June 24, 2020, my update dealt with all things Q. You can find it here if interested:

The following is a heavily edited transcript capturing several minutes of that class beginning at 1:06:00 into the video:

[Gary] So, where do some or many Q followers go wrong? Well, first of all, many Q followers are Christians, but what they do is they ignore Bible prophecy.

[Student] Because they fall into the premise that the good side is going to take over the world.

[Gary] Exactly. Because [Q’s end game] is similar to the New Apostolic Reformation thinking, which says that “We’re going to take control of the world, all the levers of society, all the cultural aspects of society. And we’re going to rise to the top, and then all the money will flow to us.”

[Gary] And then, over whatever period of time, NAR will Christianize the world and hand that to Jesus when He comes. Well, the Bible doesn’t say that. I’ll just warn you that you might come across some things [regarding Q] you have to take with a grain of salt. It’s Kingdom Now. There is a very good, incisive look at the Deep State [on YouTube] called the Cabal Series. It’s really good because it goes into all the stuff, including the sexual predator stuff, that the Deep State people [who are part of it] do. It’s absolutely disgusting. At the end of it, it goes in this NAR direction. The thinking behind all that Q is doing is they are going to beat back the Deep State. And [when they do] this opens up a wonderful world free [and glorious]. I mean, it’s a nice idea, but I don’t buy it. On the other hand, I also believe we still have to do everything that we can [against the Deep State].

When I did this class, I saw there were issues as to where following Q led.

You can see I had concerns about Q because his end game isn’t Biblical. What I didn’t do was to connect all the dots despite seeing some of them.

Many readers may be familiar with Pastor J.D. Farag, who is a noted Bible prophecy teacher. Pastor J.D. does weekly Bible prophecy updates. In his update of July 19, 2020, he spoke extensively about Q and issued a warning. You can see the video here:

He dove deeper than I previously had and assembled the puzzle pieces that I did not. I’m going to try to simplify this explanation:

Q is against the Deep State.

New Age-Gnostics are against the Deep State.

Christians are against the Deep State.

Q is comprised of many New Age-Gnostic supporters.

Q is comprised of many Christian supporters.


Deep State is demonic.

New Age-Gnosticism is demonic.

Christians are of God.


If Satan is not divided against himself,

If Satan wouldn’t actually cause division between Deep State and New Age-Gnostics,

Then Satan is deceiving us by creating a diversion.


New Age-Gnostics desire an end game in which “We are god.”

New Age-Gnostics desire “A Great Awakening.” [Q drop 3858]

Q desires a Great Awakening.

Q believes that when the Deep State is eradicated:

Then, “A Beautiful Brave New World Lies Ahead.” [Q drop 2450]

This scenario has been likened to a false flag operation. Both Christians and New Age-Gnostics oppose the Deep State.

They align and are yoked in their common goal of exposing and destroying the Deep State. Because Q is a good and worthy force through his efforts to eradicate the Deep State, by definition, this means all that he says is good and acceptable. Thus, Christians are co-opted into the New Age-Gnostic thinking because they believe in Q’s Great Awakening and its ultimate good outcome.

Guess what? Christians are being deceived as Satan accomplishes his goal of turning them from God in their total embrace of Q and his stated outcomes.

Devious is not graphic enough to describe this plan.

I say this as one who loves what Q is doing to attack and dismantle the Deep State and the horrific pedophile rings that live within it:

Christians, do not buy Q’s end game. Follow and appreciate what Q does, but do so with wisdom and discernment, knowing that Satan wants to suck you in and away from the truth of God. He will do anything he can to confuse your understanding of Scripture and Bible prophecy. Satan’s efforts lead to a dark place, not a Great Awakening. You have been warned!
