A war wages. The stakes are everything. The battleground is the earth. Yet the universe itself is on the line.

The enemies waging the war are supernatural. Humans find themselves caught in the middle. The wars you see being waged on earth around you? They are but a distraction, to get your attention off of the real war being waged.

The weapons humans are able to use in such a battle are not carnal. For the adversary is far beyond our scope and ability to out-smart, out-wit, out-maneuver, out-anything.

Those who do not see this war being waged, or refuse to acknowledge it have been locked into the Matrix. A design of the enemy to blind them from seeing the real issues at stake, the real war being waged. Rather they bicker among each other of things of little importance: their color, their ethnicity, their nationality, their social standing, their intellicet, their intelligence, etc. etc. They are caught up in a deceit so thoroughly pulled over the their eyes, it literally takes a miracle to pull the veil away. A person once they realize the plight they are in can take steps to understand the truth, to free themselves of the Matrix. But it takes a humble heart, and a yearning for truth, along with a meek spirit in order to accomplish such a feat. And then, these alone are not enough. No human can free themselves of this mental darkness on their own. Once they have the mental qualities needed then they can allow God to remove the veil from their eyes, and open them up to see the marvelous truths like revelations of light. Once those eyes are opened they need to adjust to the light, for it is blinding in its radiance. It is undeniable.

Faith is not blind. Faith is based on facts and realities which are proven to be true, the evident demonstration of realities that are not beheld with the eyes. Once one has come into the position to allow themselves to accept God’s spirit to open their eyes they will indeed gain faith as they see him work in their lives and open their eyes to things that seem so simple that they cannot understand how they had been fooled before.

Without humility, without meekness, without a desire for truth no one can truly attain faith. And faith is only acquired after having accepted the real word of truth, by study, by investigation, by logic, by understanding, by wisdom, by proving what is right and true. Then and only then can the free gift of faith be granted to those who wish to break free from the Matrix.

What is offered by those who have the light is a guide to the truth. They themselves cannot do anything further. They may plant the seed in the heart of man, they may help water it so that it may grow, but only God can make it grow. And it grows differently in each person. Once the enemy sees the seed of truth has been planted he will do anything in his power to crush it and extinguish the growth.

The enemy never sleeps he is relentless, he is vicious, he is cruel. He is real.

That enemy is an invisible spirit. Evil in intent, malicious in thought. Religion is in his hands. He owns the rulers of the world. Also commercialism is in his hands. He has invented a plethora of religions to appease the masses, one for every whim out there. None fit you? No problem, he doesn’t mind making another just for your haughty thoughts.

Not into religion? No problem. The evil mastermind has set up atheism to blind the minds of arrogant intellectuals. He is the power behind the occult powers and occultism. He controls everything.

The one thing that exposes him, he has made seem appear a fairy tale. Something to laugh at, to trash, to downgrade.

You want to believe you are a god? Good, you fit in. You want to get involved into the occult? Good, you fit in. You want any of the thousands of religions that man has invented? Good, you fit in. You want to act like you believe in the Holy Scriptures, yet ignore what they say? Good, you fit in. You have been locked into the Matrix.

You want to believe in the Holy Scriptures? What they actually say? Bad. You do not fit in. You will be attacked relentlessly, from all quarters. The supernatural enemy will use the occult to mislead many to assume that he himself invented the Holy Scriptures, or that they are evil. He will use modern intellectualism and higher criticism to attack your belief in the scriptures. His minions do his bidding all the time. They swarm everywhere trying to stamp out the fire, the light that has been set aglow in the world.

Those who are able to comprehend the truth are humble, meek people. They come from all walks of life from all over the world. They use common sense and logic. They are loving and caring people.

Haughty, selfish, arrogant, ruthless, lawless people, no matter what their intellect cannot comprehend or see past the veil of darkness in which the world now slumbers.

This is the ultimate conspiracy. It is a conspiracy to totally entrap mankind in a web of lies and deceit. And it almost worked. Accept for the unerring word of truth, the light that was sent forth like a beckon in a bedarkened world, the Holy Scriptures, the word of God.

Yes there is a war out for your mind. It is a universal war, and we are heading towards it ultimate climax.

The Holy Scriptures condemn the occult arts because they are demonically inspired. They are tools in Satan’s hands to mislead the weary and unsuspecting. Not all though are ignorant of the power behind the occult.

Members of the occult here on this board have proclaimed many times that the Bible is a work, or takes its work from the occult. But learn what the Bible says about the occult: “There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who employs divination, anyone practicing magic, anyone who looks for omens, a sorcerer, anyone binding others with a spell, anyone who consults a spirit mediumn or a fortune-teller, or anyone who inquires of the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to Jehovah, and on account of these detestable practices Jehovah your God is driving them away from before you. You should prove yourself blameless before Jehovah your God.” – Deuteronomy 18:10-13.

When the ancient people in Ephesus heard the word of truth, that hotbed of Satanic occult activity, in order to please God and break free from their bondage and slavery in their mental darkness to the dark overlord of the earth, they gathered together and burned all their books on spirtistic practices:

“Indeed, quite a number of those who practiced magical arts brought their books together and burned them up before everybody. And they calculated together the prices of them and found them worth fifty thousand pieces of silver. Thus in a mighty way the word of Jehovah kept growing and prevailing.” – Acts 19:19, 20.


This is what the Holy Scriptures tell those who practice the occult arts to do. It condemns the occult in no uncertain terms.

It also condemns false religion, and reveals that Satan the Devil is the real ruler of the world, he is the source of power behind the world power of our day, the Anglo-American alliance, Great Britain and the United States. And he is also the source of power behind all other ruler ships on earth: “And the dragon gave to [the beast] its power and its throne and great authority.”-Revelation 13.2

(Luke 4:5, 6) . . .So he brought him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in an instant of time; and the Devil said to him: “I will give you all this authority and the glory of them, because it has been delivered to me, and to whomever I wish I give it.

No wonder Satan doesn’t want you to read the Bible. Or to believe what it says. No doubt many with seething hatred for any mention of the Bible or anything in it will appear here and spew their vitriolic hatred against God and the Holy Scriptures. Satan’s minions in the occult arts will appear and try to act as if the Holy Scriptures are their domain. And yet the arrogant intellectual fools will merely dismiss all of this away with insulting words such as: haughty, bible-thumper, and other derogatory comments that come from their mental bent and hatred.

This cannot be avoided. Yet not everyone has reached that point. And there are still those who are rightly disposed to living forever: “When those of the nations heard this, they began to rejoice and to glorify the word of Jehovah, and all those who were rightly disposed for everlasting life became believers.” –Acts 13:38.

This is the greatest of all conspiracies. There is none higher. That a son of God aspired to become God and usurp his throne. That he fell and a war, a universal war is being waged. That he has blinded the minds of many, and he misleads the entire earth:

(2 Corinthians 4:4) among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.

(Revelation 12:9) . . .So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.

All mankind is marching in darkness and are being lead to their doom.

Some will come and cry foul, say preaching! They will not do so to any other conspiracy. Yet many have vehement hatred for the exposure of this conspiracy and thus they will try to get you to see it as something foolish. For to a haughty, arrogant mind the wisdom of God, real wisdom is foolishness. And therein lies the beauty of God’s word.

You do not need to be intellectual to understand it. You do not need years of education to get it. God’s word appeals to a humble and a meek heart. And you cannot understand it any other way.

Yet the light of truth, when understood slashes away at the darkness. The Holy Scriptures are a sword of light, a spiritual sword that slashes apart the darkness, and brings into subjection all thoughts and deeds among men:

(2 Corinthians 10:4, 5) . . .For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but powerful by God for overturning strongly entrenched things. 5 For we are overturning reasonings and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God; and we are bringing every thought into captivity to make it obedient to the Christ;


It is true, that the foolish person, the “physical man” cannot understand true wisdom, and thus God in his wisdom has seen fit to show up the intellectuals of the world as foolish, by means of mere fools in their eyes:

(1 Corinthians 1:19-21) . . .For it is written: “I will make the wisdom of the wise [men] perish, and the intelligence of the intellectual [men] I will shove aside.” Where is the wise man? Where the scribe? Where the debater of this system of things? Did not God make the wisdom of the world foolish? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through its wisdom did not get to know God, God saw good through the foolishness of what is preached to save those believing.

And that is the key. The revealing of truth, the opening of your eyes to the light, the lifting away of the veil of the greatest of all conspiracies against humankind is done by those who preach what is considered foolishness to the intellectuals of the world.

Those who have the truth shine like beacons of light in this bedarkened world:

(Philippians 2:15) . . .that YOU may come to be blameless and innocent, children of God without a blemish in among a crooked and twisted generation, among whom YOU are shining as illuminators in the world,

They bear God’s real name, his true name, Jehovah. They bear witness to his kingship and his goodness. They do not get involved in the bickering national disputes and wars of this world in Satan’s hands. They do not hate their fellowman, they do not go to war. They are preachers in all the earth. They are beacons of light.

Wisdom it takes to understand this. Humility it takes to accept it. Once that has been accomplished, then, then, if you prepare your heart, and you understand, if you accept the peace that is offered, then the spirit will remain. It is a personal choice. It is none Bible thumping to reveal these evident truths. Even Jesus said:

(Matthew 5:14-16) . . .“YOU are the light of the world. A city cannot be hid when situated upon a mountain. 15 People light a lamp and set it, not under the measuring basket, but upon the lampstand, and it shines upon all those in the house. 16 Likewise let YOUR light shine before men, that they may see YOUR fine works and give glory to YOUR Father who is in the heavens.

The darkness rules the authority of the air of this world. Yet it cannot conquer the light. True, those minions of Satan will wickedly relish in lying about those who bear witness to Jehovah and his name, but this is only a proof of their approval before God:

(Matthew 5:11, 12) . . .“Happy are YOU when people reproach YOU and persecute YOU and lyingly say every sort of wicked thing against YOU for my sake. 12 Rejoice and leap for joy, since YOUR reward is great in the heavens; for in that way they persecuted the prophets prior to YOU.


Many do so out of ignorance and arrogance and misunderstanding. Few who know the real truth though do it out of willful malice.

(Ephesians 4:17, 18) . . .This, therefore, I say and bear witness to in [the] Lord, that you no longer go on walking just as the nations also walk in the unprofitableness of their minds, while they are in darkness mentally, and alienated from the life that belongs to God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the insensibility of their hearts.

This is true Christianity. There is on occultism involved. It exposes the occult and the source beyond the occult. It also breaks the bonds of mental darkness that Satan has imposed on all those who remain asleep in his Matrix of unreality he has going on all around us.

It is true, that what we have to bear with is not our fault. And Jehovah understands that. Because of it he is merciful, even to the most incorrigible of sinners.

If we were perfect and we sinned, that then would be the problem that would have no solution.

Even the righteous man Job, when doing no wrong, was accused by that lying slanderer Satan the Devil, and asked permission of God to put him to the test to see whether or not Job was righteous because God blessed him. God allowed Satan to do so. Job was not to blame. And even Job himself got to the point where he did not want to keep living because of all the bad that befell him.

You are not wrong to think the way you do. But to understand why things are the way they are, and how liberation is at hand, and possible gives us hope! Do not despair my friend. The broom knows despair, and he understands your thoughts. They are appreciated.

We are alive. And if you really understood what wonderful blessings await those who endure, with faith, that helps:

(Romans 8:18) Consequently I reckon that the sufferings of the present season do not amount to anything in comparison with the glory that is going to be revealed in us.

Sunday was yesterday. I didn't go to church then, so what makes you think I want to read a religious sermon online? By the way, how do you know that the side of God is the correct one? History is always written by the victors and even the bible (if truly inspired by God) is a novel of history written by the victors.

Strategically speaking, God's position is a mightily suspicious one. I'm inclined to take a much closer look at Satan's side of the story. I've read way too many political novels to not pick up on the signs.

There is nothing supernatural related to the Matrix. The Matrix is created from the same allegory that is employed in the Bible. It is all allegory. Most of our words have hidden meanings known only to an elite. You are fooled by others into believing that you understand this allegory. Quote it all you want. It is meaningless unless you see the hidden meanings or perceive the real context.

What you call "evil" is really related to finding the true meaning of Matrix allegory and those books "burned" in "Ephesus" were most likely related to Gnostic interpretations of this allegory. (I use quotes to indicate that those words also have hidden meanings.) The early Gnostics knew the truth about Matrix allegory, but they revealed too much and they had to be stopped. They were infiltrated and their interpretations were corrupted to create what we call Christianity. How do you think Neo won his victories? He did it from the inside. He jumped into Agent Smith and took his place. When Neo's "eyes" were burned out, it symbolized the elimation of his true history.

My source for this knowledge comes from my own research since no one else is allowed to publish this knowledge. I have been able to crack portions of this allegory so I know its true nature, but I know that you will never be convinced unless you find it for yourself. I myself was once a Christian and I know how hard it is to escape.

Exactly, God seems to be out to do more harm than good in the bible. He is actually responsible for more death and destruction in the bible than Satan is, yet Satan is considered the great adversary and completely evil. To the victor go the spoils (as well as the authorship of history)

People put a lot of time into interpreting a book to mean this or that. Given enough content just about any lesson can be imparted by putting together different passages. The trick is to find out how the people that wrote that book found the wisdom to write it. Where did they get that from ?

Book worship, or calling a thing (any thing) holy is blasphemous. The Holy Bible, the Holy Scriptures, Gods word. What is Holy is the spirit, not a book. You either receive wisdom through the souls conduit or (like the preacher said) you live in the Matrix.

And in the real Matrix, (not the hollywood one) the church is in the same deep cave as all other worldly pursuits. You want to find God look within, not out into the world, into the pages of a book written by men.

I'm not saying don't read the Bible, just don't hold it up as the only path, don't let others tell you what it means. Go to the source. Let that guide you.

What makes you think that the OP wrote this for your benefit? If you don't believe, then you don't believe, and nothing that was written in the OP is going to make any difference for you.

Seriously. If you don't like religion, why hang out in the religion forums and post things like "I don't want to read religious posts"?

This is the conspiracies in religions forum not the preach your religion forum. I started reading the OP and got about halfway when I realized it was just any other sermon I could hear by going to church on Sunday. I come to this forum to discuss hidden conspiracies about the origins of religions, not to be proselytized to.

Keep in mind the bit of text you quoted wasn't my entire post. I contributed my bit to the thread shortly afterwards as well as in my followup post. Do you have something against debating with someone who disagrees with religion or do you like posting in echo chambers in religious threads? If not then don't try to run me off the forums.

I'm not saying you have to like the content, I'm just saying that complaining about religious posts in a religion forum is akin to me going to the Aliens and UFOs forum and complaining about all of the posts about aliens and UFOs.


Keep in mind the bit of text you quoted wasn't my entire post.

Yes, I see you added "How do you know that your God is the right god", the answer to which is pretty much summed up in the OP -- they're a Christian and if they believed that another god was the "true God", they'd be something else, I presume. None of us are going to know that we're right or wrong until it's all over, so it seems a pointless query (besides the fact that anything they'd answer you with would be dismissed as religious drivel.)

The OP's post is a well written and thought out piece about their view of the state of the world (though the Matrix bit is a little dodgy) and deserves a little more consideration than a drive-by "stop posting religious drivel in the religious forums" remark.

Well that is the folly of religion. It takes blind faith to think you are right. You don't know that you are correct, there is no supporting evidence to say so. This is especially bad in that you don't know if you are backing the right horse or not. Like I eluded to in my second post, what if Satan is the real God and the one everyone is worshiping now is the real Great Adversary who usurped the throne, rewrote history, and forced the humans to worship him under threat of death and damnation? You just don't know and your only supporting evidence is one book, which happens to show some of your God's finer points: condones slavery, massacres entire cities, floods the world, refuses to let his own creations gain knowledge, kicks the creations out of paradise when they do, dupes a man to try to sacrifice his own son, and that is just off the top of my head. Do these actions really show a loving and benevolent god? The funny part is that the retort to these accusations is always that it was a different time. Well God is supposed to be outside of time, would He really change that much over the course of a few thousand years?

I'm not a fundamentalist, and my beliefs stem from personal observation and experience, not from slavish devotion to a book. But to each their own, I'm not an evangelist, either, and don't really care what other people believe. If you want to turn the tables and say that Satan is good, and God is bad, despite the irrationality of that, knock yourself out.

It only sounds irrational because you've been told the opposite your whole life. This viewpoint stems from the bible, so regardless of your personal experiences, the idea that God is good and Satan is evil comes from the bible. There is literally no other way to come to this conclusion. So naturally when looking at it from another angle it appears irrational. However, if one were to step back from the dogma (propaganda) of the bible and look at the actual text and the deeds of each entity, it becomes less of an irrational thought.

Think about it, name the evil deeds attributed to Satan in the bible. You can probably count them on one hand. Meanwhile, God's list is HUGE. I didn't even name all of them in my previous post. Yet he does all this because he loves you dearly. Heh, that last line smells like grade A politician propaganda bs. You'd think that something that loves everyone equally and unconditionally wouldn't bring about so much death, destruction, and hardship to spread that message.

You know instead of letting the Jews march around the walls of Jericho with the Ark of the Covenant causing it to blow the wall to bits, maybe God should have encouraged tolerance and letting the two peoples resolve their differences peacefully. But NOOOO they just HAD to destroy the walls, letting them invade and subsequently sack the city (rape goes in there somewhere too as that happens every time an invading force occupies a foreign city), all because God said it was ok and gave them the tool to do so. Not to mention, explain to me why the container for the Ten Commandments (one of which contains the bit, thou shall not murder) doubles as a devastating weapon.

God loves me so much, he created hell just in case I don't love him back. Meanwhile, Satan doesn't have a damn thing to say to me regarding my lifestyle or God. Which is actually pretty remarkable given he's supposed to be corrupting me and twisting me. Then again, isn't he supposed to punish the bad guys too? That's what he's in hell for, right? So if God made sin and Satan punishes the sinners, who is the bad guy here?

You're a funny one to talk about irrationality, given the above fifteen seconds of analysis and I've already rendered your infallible conclusions thoroughly questionable and in need of reevaluation.

All religion is a scam. Christianity is the biggest scam ever perpetuated upon mankind. Christianity and other religions ARE the Matrix, another mechanism of control to keep you from looking inside yourself for the real answers. Yahweh was an extraterrestrial and a not very nice one at that. You are worshiping aliens the same way Vanuatu natives worship America . Your religion is a "cargo culture". Think for yourself and reject evil alien programming.

You certainly had the Helper with you to deliver in that Spirit of Truth.
Powerful words in servitude, testifying in a world wherein many are Called by their Blessings, yet few sadly heed to it's Faith for bearing, snared by the spiritual powers of evil working upon the carnal nature.


Blessed are those who trust in the LORD,
whose trust is the LORD.

They shall be like a tree planted by water,
sending out its roots by the stream.

It shall not fear when heat comes,
and its leaves shall stay green;

in the year of the drought it is not anxious,
and it does not cease to bear fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7-8

Thank you for your fruits in labor, as we pray for more to gather for the Harvest.
