Any talk of these subjects naturally brings a skeptical response. However, before dismissing out-of-hand the possibility of some hidden global agenda(s), it is worth noting a few notable ‘conspiracy theories’ that have been confirmed:
- The mafia. (This secret crime society was virtually unknown until the 1960s.)
- Numerous conspiracies to assassinate Hitler during WWII
- Numerous secrets exposed by Wikileaks
- NSA surveillance exposed by Edward Snowden
There are also known secret societies about which there are numerous conspiracy theories:
- Bohemian Grove (annual meeting of the world’s elite)
There are also well-known events and/or movements that have either had, or are speculated to have, detrimental impacts on large populations despite ostensibly positive goals:
- Bretton Woods conference and system/s (e.g., Marshall Plan) for rebuilding economies post WWII
- New World Order (often referred to by George H. W. Bush and other key leaders)
George Orwell’s novel 1984 gave rise to the term “Big Brother”, providing insight (and arguably foresight) into totalitarian governments who monitor and control detailed aspects of daily life through use of propaganda, surveillance, mind control and historical revisionism.
References in the Bible that provide fore-warning and insight
You people are from your father the devil, and you want to do what your father desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of lies.
By his treachery he will succeed through deceit. He will have an arrogant attitude, and he will destroy many who are unaware of his schemes.
You will hear of wars and rumours of wars. Make sure that you are not alarmed, for this must happen, but the end is still to come. For nation will rise up in arms against nation, and kingdom against kingdom
Then war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But the dragon was not strong enough to prevail, so there was no longer any place left in heaven for him and his angels. So that huge dragon- the ancient serpent, the one called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world- was thrown down to the earth, and his angels along with him.
He also caused everyone (small and great, rich and poor, free and slave) to obtain a mark on their right hand or on their forehead. Thus no one was allowed to buy or sell things unless he bore the mark of the beast- that is, his name or his number
with whom the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality and the earth?s inhabitants got drunk with the wine of her immorality
Bible advice on these issues
“?For this is what the sovereign Lord says: Look, I myself will search for my sheep and seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his scattered sheep, so I will seek out my flock. I will rescue them from all the places where they have been scattered on a cloudy, dark day
Fearing the Lord leads to life, and one who does so will live satisfied; he will not be afflicted by calamity
“Do not be afraid of them, for nothing is hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing is secret that will not be made known”.
Then Jesus said to those Judeans who had believed him, “If you continue to follow my teaching, you are really my disciples and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free”.
“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. For he will not speak on his own authority, but will speak whatever he hears, and will tell you what is to come”.
For the whole law can be summed up in a single commandment, namely, “ You must love your neighbor as yourself.” However, if you continually bite and devour one another, beware that you are not consumed by one another. But I say, live by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desires of the flesh. For the flesh has desires that are opposed to the Spirit, and the Spirit has desires that are opposed to the flesh, for these are in opposition to each other, so that you cannot do what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, depravity, idolatry, sorcery, hostilities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish rivalries, dissensions, factions, envying, murder, drunkenness, carousing, and similar things. I am warning you, as I had warned you before: Those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
