Many of the founding fathers were Freemasons. This nation was founded on many principles which obviously came from Freemasonry. Many aspects of our nation now parallel to Freemasonry. That organization does seem to have its fingers in all walks of life. I believe Freemasonry had a large effect on the founding of our nation because that organization came in vogue at the time people became enlightened, seeking freedom and liberty.
"The Age of Enlightenment" (aka, "The Age of Reason") came of age in the 1780s. Reason, analysis and individualism replaced traditional lines of authority. Much of authority had come from the traditional church and much of the reason came from the scientific community and philosophy. This was an age when the influence of science exceeded that of the church. In France, the traditional, mostly Roman Catholic Church, was replaced by the religion of "Reason" during the revolution there.
Freemasonry in the American colonies grew from 1715 and was formalized in 1781 when a "grand master" was appointed in North America. Because freemasonry was in vogue simultaneous with The Enlightenment is why Freemasonry had so much input on the formation of the United States, its leaders and its laws! Freemasonry doesn't seem to be a conspiracy, but a conspiracy was at work with Freemasonry when the United States was in formation! Let me explain the difference.
There is a general spiritual conspiracy. It consists of people, organizations, activities and even churches which promulgate evil. There is no particular evil which is propagated, but anything which works against the authority of God! Many people believe that President Obama is conspiring to reduce the status and success of this nation. I don't believe there is a conspiracy to do that! It would seem that the spiritual conspiracy includes evil things and Obama is the naive instrument used to create a New World Order!
The "New World Order" is a conspiracy theory without denial! This "Order" is a totalitarian government with absolute powers, is world wide, secretive, authoritarian and anti-establishment, at least those which are traditional and Christian in nature. It's sometimes referred to as a "One World Government" and "globalism" is one of its initiatives. There are secular people who believe in this New World Order, but Christian people see this type of government in the apocalypse and the rule of the antichrist.
I've written much on Marxism. I believe that Marxism is the model for the New World Order and this government will gradually grow through the process of socialism, regarded by many as benign or even desirable. However, since many tenets of socialism employ losses of freedom and profit, many will resist! It's the response of socialist governments to enforce resisted laws and, as a consequence, those who favor keeping what's theirs, become an obstacle to the "good of the masses". Because of resistance to confiscatory laws, totalitarianism ensues. Socialism and communism become one and the same! Communism is the enforcement arm of Marxism while socialism is the cultural changes to which lead to the need for strong-arm tactics.
Since individualism is a primary aspect of enlightenment, it appears that with poetic justice, socialism is the end of enlightenment. What started as initiative on the part of the industrious and motivated, ends in despair with herd mentality and regulation.
It's obvious, based on his development and policies, that Obama is a Marxist! I know... Bill O'Reilly disagrees, but it seems that part of his disagreement is to separate himself from conspiracy theories. However, Marxism is not a conspiracy theory. It's a conspiracy only from the aspect of the broader picture. It's part of the plan of mankind! Yes, this conspiracy theory alludes to a plan. There is a battle going on and people are choosing sides! Non-discerning people are going with the conspiracy and the discerning are fighting it!
Are you part of the conspiracy? Here is a self-test:
- Are your beliefs moving away from what's traditional to what's in vogue?
- Do you believe that morality is relative?
- Do you accept science and philosophy over scripture?
- Do you change with the masses?
- For you is truth relative. Does it change with the times?
- For you is social justice paramount?
- Does the loss of freedom seem unimportant to you?
- Do you accept the premise that traditional beliefs are extremist in nature?
- Do you believe Christianity is intolerant and overly harsh?
- Is your belief system molded most by entertainment and media over study and research?
- Do you believe what is generally distributed in the news?
- Have you failed to compare the "truths" of today to the "truths" of your fathers?
- Do you fail to see the importance of freedom and Christianity as complementary?
- Do you believe that our Constitution repressive or outdated?
- Do you believe in income redistribution.
- Is the family still important to you?
- You believe that the government important to raising your children?
- Do you agree that Christians go overboard and that there are many fanatics?
If you believe how society believes, then you are unwittingly part of the conspiracy. Even our leaders, even pastors of churches, are unwitting pawns of this massive conspiracy. It's not directed by powerful people, but by mighty forces! I keep repeating myself with this scripture, but it IS THE CONSPIRACY:
Ephesians 6:12 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
There are many conspiracies leading toward the one, but there is only one conspiracy!
Let's start with principalities. They are fallen angels, called demons, and Satan himself, called "the devil". These are the same "folks" who came to challenge God and his relationship with Job:
Job 1:6 "Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them."These rulers had the power to overthrow Job. They could destroy his whole world as long as they allowed him to continue in life. That's what God allowed! They did all in their power to destroy Job's faith and they whittled away a little at a time, but took everything away, but his life!
Job is a picture of us! All we have and all we believe is at stake. The demons and Satan whittles away at our property, our families and our beliefs, even our health, until we are impoverished physically and spiritually. At some point we have two places to turn: to God or to the Deceiver. Most will relent and Satan wins the war. He has conspired to enlist you in his New World Order and you slowly, but surely enlist. The "whittling away of you" are the items in the "self-test" above!
The rulers of darkness! Who are they? Darkness is opposed to the teachings of Christ who is the light of this world and is truth. Those who rule the darkness are false teachers with false beliefs. Progressive thought and modern churches represent two entities in darkness. The rulers of those institutions are "rulers of darkness". Is Obama the antichrist? Surely not! However, he is a ruler of darkness! It may not be by his own volition, but he is an instrument used by the powers of darkness.
Spiritual wickedness in high places? That's the leaders of the world, the shakers and movers, the educators and the religious leaders in apostasy who influence the masses. "Political Correctness" is a tool they use to intimidate and control. They use that method of propaganda to influence how you change with the items in the self-test. Even the church is contaminated and is the pawn of principalities. They believe that what they teach is truth, but it merely is what they wished were true!
Right now I won't go into the government of the apocalypse. It's authoritarian and the victims are the people. Freedom is lost and all is regulated. Penalties are harsh and compliance not easy. Especially Christians and those who will become Christians (Jews) are the victims. The leader has absolute global control and is revered as a god, as he proclaims himself to be God. He is The Antichrist!
That is the conspiracy! All others which exist are subject to this primary conspiracy. The one that shakes the foundation of the world and prepares the way for freedom to become a forgotten dream.
