The Q Quandary: Part 2 :: By Gary Ritter

In Part 1 of The Q Quandary, I described how Christians can be deceived in following Q without exercising wisdom and discernment. The reason for this is because the outcome that Q espouses is exactly the same as what the New Age/New Gnostic community believes will happen. Their expectation is that once Q defeats the Deep State forces arrayed against President Trump, this will result in a Great Awakening, i.e. a glorious future free of the evil players attempting to create a New World Order. This is not a Biblical outcome. Scripture tells us the world will get darker as mankind becomes more depraved in its anti-God fervor. This will lead to the Tribulation. That’s quite a difference in outcomes.

In this essay, Part 2 of The Q Quandary, I wanted to outline the contrasting thinking of Q’s New Age-Gnostic followers versus how they view the opposing Deep Staters that desire to enact a One-World Government, and then add a couple of other factors into the mix. The chart below hopefully summarizes this conflicting thinking between the two groups.

Those who follow Q can be said to be part of the Alliance, while the Deep State players are described as the Cabal.

Alliance                                               Cabal

Q                                                             Deep State

Light                                                      Dark

White hats                                          Black hats

White magic                                       Black magic

Illumination                                        Satanism

New Age-Gnostic                            New World Order

Freedom                                             Domination

Storm – expose dark                      Shelter – hide dark deeds

Righteous                                            Morally depraved (elite pedophilia rings)

This isn’t perfect, but you can get a sense of the gathering conflict. However, as I noted in Part 1, this is—on the surface to a Christian observer—Satan against Satan and a house divided. As I also said, that’s not the case.

In thinking about these two factions, I realized that they aren’t the only conflicting ideologies. In fact, Satan isn’t juggling just two balls with his sleight-of-hand to distract Christ-followers from the truth of Scripture; he’s got at least four balls in the air. There are undoubtedly more, but the other two major ones are the Red-Green Alliance, comprised of Red Marxists and Green Islamists on one hand, and the Apostate Church on the other.

The Red-Green Alliance causes Christians to stumble because of various lies they believe. Prominent dupes of the Red Marxist cause are those on the Left, the liberals who believe in climate change, social justice, and the false racist narrative that’s currently being peddled. At the same time, the Green Islamic side has done a remarkable job of confusing immature Christians to think that Islam and Christianity worship the same God. They do not. But gullible Christians are led down this path of Chrislam, believing that since Islam and Christianity are both Abrahamic faiths, they are equally valid.

While these forces are in play drawing Christians into false narratives, within the overall scope of what’s considered Christianity, there’s another major pond of quicksand.

Most of us are aware of the great apostasy taking place in the church. Mainline denominations have almost completely succumbed. Evangelicals are likewise embracing non-Biblical positions through aberrant support of LGBT and other like currents in society. However, rampant ecumenicalism is also muddying the water. The Vatican has attempted to overthrow the Reformation ever since it began with Luther. The various popes have worked to undermine the wrong-thinking Protestant church by bringing its leaders together to agree on various so-called common doctrines. By doing this, the vital differences have been ignored in the interest of unity. This has led in recent years to evangelicals “coming back” to Rome and agreeing that the Reformation was a mistake. One prominent evangelical leader even went so far as to kiss the feet of the pope as an act of repentance and honor.

If you consider these four balls that Satan is juggling, on the surface you’d think that he really has a divided kingdom. But, if you realize his every intent is not to have one side “win”; rather, it’s to draw God’s people into confusion and to darkness, then Satan’s mash of seemingly opposing positions makes sense.

Coming back to Q, as I’ve said previously, the stated outcome of eliminating the Deep State and the satanic elites who comprise it is a terrific effort. Who of right mind could oppose that? But as true followers of Jesus Christ, we must not be led astray.

By remembering that we’re in the world—and thus should be aware of what’s going on around us—we must absolutely not be of the world. We must see through a Biblical, prophetic lens. It is only through that prism that we can rightly discern the deceptions around us and the dark spiritual forces that desire to keep us from God and Truth.

Let’s stay awake and alert to keep our focus on Jesus and His soon return.
