Don’t Be Distracted — Spiritual Deception

Complimentary Story
May 2023

  A new form of propaganda has risen in our day. It goes by various names. The one I like best has been dubbed “impression management.” As with all forms of propaganda, impression management is really nothing more than the art of distraction renamed.

   In other words, show people something shiny in one hand to distract them from what you are doing with the other hand.

   Our nation has been slowly programmed to be susceptible to this type of propaganda. The methodology of this particular programming involves shortening the attention spans of people so that they do not bother to think analytically or linearly from something presented as fact, to the implications of that proposition, or to the logical outcome of any proposition.

   This seems to be the favored approach to mind manipulation.

   In the past, politicians have used this technique deftly over many decades. One clear example from the past was to drop news late on a Friday afternoon when things are winding down for the week, hoping that the news cycle would miss it or report on it late and obviously after-the-fact, when a simple “what difference does it make now” would suffice to placate people.

   Today, with the major media outlets all owned by a handful of corporations, and those corporations long since co-opted into American Fascism, there is no need to be concerned about news reporting that would raise the ire of a nation’s population. The media machine simply marches in lockstep with the government and refuses to report on certain things.

   Here is an example – the East Palestine train derailment. 

   Entertainment has been used to condition people. Here are two examples. (Grammys and Super Bowl Half Time Show).

   John Stonestreet at Break Point reported that Jewish conservative commentator Ben Shapiro “described perfectly the kind of satanism on display” at the Grammys in a Twitter thread.

   For most of religious history, Satan was the great villain, an emblem of rebellion against the Good and the True, a symbol of resistance to the Holy.

   When John Milton wrote Paradise Lost (1667), his Satan famously stated, “better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heav’n.” Satan was the villain of the piece, abandoning the Good and the True for a personal sense of power.

   For transgressive poet Percy Shelley, however, Satan was the hero of Paradise Lost:” “Milton’s Devil as a moral being is as far superior to his God as one who perseveres in some purpose which he has conceived to be excellent in spite of adversity and torture.”

   Why did he believe this? Because he believed that the essence of “love” is “liberty,” that the goal of life is subjective “happiness,” and that “religion and morality, as they now stand, compose a practical code of misery and servitude.”

   This is the message of our modern-day Satanists as well. Religion and morality are evils. Worship of “authenticity,” particularly in the sexual realm, is the highest possible good. Worship Satan by worshiping yourself. 

   There is one other statement that Shapiro made that was not included in the Breakpoint article. Shapiro said, “To even notice that this happened is to draw fire: ‘Hey, why are you even noticing? Why do you care?” This is the Face Tattoo Syndrome in action: do something highly provocative, then act shocked and appalled when people are provoked.”

   It’s called intentionally drawing attention from Christians and social/political conservatives so that you can ridicule them for being out of touch and/or fuddy-duddies, or worse.

   This, of course, soon after the scandalous Balenciaga ad campaign of late 2022 featuring clear images of bondage and references to child pornography and pedophilia.

   WHAT IS GOING ON? We are being played,  friends. We are being intentionally distracted by the increasing level of in-your-face evil. 

   At a time when we of all people, — blood bought, born-again, redeemed, believers and disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, should be preparing ourselves, our families, our ecclesias, and our larger network of believers to respond to this outbreak of evil, we are running around attempting to put out a fire here and over there, not understanding that these actions play right into the hands of the wicked in our midst.

   We are not organized, and we are not focused on the information we already know about the wickedness rising on the earth. Instead, we are focused on whatever the wicked in our midst do next.

   One example among many is the current push by the World Economic Forum that they have titled “The Great Reset.” I wrote about this extensively in my book The Four Horses of Revelation 6: A New Prophetic Interpretation.” Here is a snippet:

   “The current cadre of globalist leaders means to refashion human beings in their own image. They speak plainly about their agenda… Does this fit into the biblical narrative of the end times? Judge for yourselves.

   “Professor Yuval Noah Harari, a top advisor to World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab, has been widely quoted as saying that human beings can be hacked and controlled.  ‘Humans are now hackable animals. You know the whole idea that humans have this soul or spirit and they have free will. So, whatever I choose whether in the election, or whether in the supermarket, this is my free will. That’s over — free will.’” 

   An increasing number of people around the world now recognize the so-called pandemic associated with the Chinese Wuhan Coronavirus known simply as COVID-19, as a huge success in terms of forcing heretofore unknown monitoring, surveillance, and curtailments of individual liberties and freedoms globally. This admission is now out in the open among those responsible for creating the mass hysteria that became a tsunami of acquiescence to the unscientific and unprovable dangers the technocrats insured us all were lurking in the shadows. Dr. Harari admitted as much. Speaking within the context of the COVID-19 hysteria (my word not his), Harari noted:

   “And maybe most importantly, all this was the moment when surveillance started going under the skin. Because really, we haven’t seen anything yet. The ability to hack humans to understand deeply what’s happening within you and what makes you go. And for that, the most important data is not what you read and who you meet and what you buy. It’s what’s happening inside your body.” 

   The non-stop daily broadcasting of the alleged COVID-19 death toll, the lies and propaganda of overflowing hospitals and overwhelmed healthcare staffs proved to be orchestrated fabrications designed with one purpose in mind – to allow those with an agenda to create the biggest experiment upon humans ever devised, with government approval, media backing, and with the formidable aid of Big Pharma, the witch’s brew of pharmacology and greed.

   Dr. David Martin has been an outspoken critic of Big Pharma, Big Tech, and the entire COVID-19 narrative. He defines the transhumanist drive to recreate man in the image of man thusly:

   “Transhumanism is a means by which we exterminate homo sapiens as a species, and go into a post-human experience of reality, where the only thing relevant is the computational synthetic process of a selected set of inputs controlled by a cloud computer.” 

   Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology, agrees that the transhumanism efforts go far beyond any kind of humanitarian goal.
   “There’s a joint report in Germany from the government of the United Kingdom about transhumanism. That’s not hidden and transhumanism is not a conspiracy. And they talk about the RNA vaccines as an entry point to kind of opening that space, ethically and otherwise. So, that’s part of the transhumanism agenda.”

   What space is it that Dr. Malone is referring to? It is the space of the human body, the human mind, the human soul. It is the complete overthrow of God’s purposeful design and creation of humanity.

   What kind of evil is this that so animates the minds and motivates the leaders of the World Economic Forum, government leaders around the world, and their lackeys in the media, education institutions, and even the entertainment industry, to advocate for the overthrow of the human race? What kind of hidden evil has deceived even Christians to support and create transhumanist organizations? 

   What kind of evil is this? It is the kind of evil that can speak the truth of their agenda and people remain blind and deaf to its message. Lance Johnson authored an article recently that brings to light the real agenda and goal of the transhumanists associated with the World Economic Forum and the supporting organizations I just mentioned. Here is what Johnson wrote.

   “One of the brains behind The World Economic Forum (WEF), is self-proclaimed prophet, Yuval Noah Harari. He believes in the Great Reset, in transhumanism, in culling the population, and using a global government to control humanity at the bio-metric level. He is praised by Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, and Klaus Schwab, leader of the WEF.

   “Harari talks about ‘useless human beings’ who do not have meaning or purpose. He said the greatest fake news is the Bible. He said Christianity is wrong, that humans are here on Earth for ‘nothing.’ ‘Jesus Christ is fake news,’ he balked. He believes there is ‘no great cosmic plan’ that humans have a role to play in. Instead, he views humans as ‘useless eaters’ who can be hacked and manipulated using digital surveillance under their skin.

   “He also believes in culling the population. ‘What do we need so many humans for?’ he is quoted as saying while promoting his latest book.

   “In a recent interview, Harari said the world is entering a new industrial revolution, but the products will not be physical goods. Harari said science, technology, and industry’s greatest challenge of the 21st century will be ‘to try to gain control of the world inside us, to learn how to engineer and produce bodies and brains and minds.’ He says these are likely to be the “main products” of the 21st century economy.

   “He said, ‘Once you know how to produce bodies and brains and minds so cheap labor in Africa and South Asia, it simply counts for nothing.’

   “‘The biggest question…in economics and politics of the coming decades, will be what to do with all these useless people,’ he said with a straight face. He said technology will ensure that everyone is fed, so ‘food is not the problem.’

   “‘The problem is more boredom, and what to do with them, and how will they find some sense of meaning in life, when they are basically meaningless, worthless.’ He prescribed drugs and computer games as solutions to entertain ‘useless’ peoples’ brains.

   “He said a global government will collect and use data on every person to learn how to engineer bodies, brains, and minds. He says data and biometrics will be used to hack human beings and re-engineer the future of human life itself. He said ‘intelligent design’ never existed and any notion of a Creator God will be driven out of society, as humans become hackable, programmable. Harari even claims that the laws of natural selection and organic biochemistry will be eliminated and replaced by a trans-humanist future, where humans become hackable animals, manipulated, and controlled.

   “‘We have the technology to hack humans on a massive scale,’ he said. He added crises should be exploited to implement more surveillance throughout society so ‘elites’ can monitor, collect data, and engineer the future trajectory of human life. Much of this surveillance will ‘come under the skin’ as biometric data become a pathway to manipulate human populations. Harari said we already have the ability to go under the skin and collect biometric data, allowing ‘elites’ the power to re-engineer life itself. ‘We are upgrading humans into gods,’ he said.

   “He said in an emergency, people trust the ‘scientists.’ He used the example of priests and ministers shutting down their churches worldwide in 2020 to prove that God is dead. Going forward, people will put their faith in the scientific elite and global government, he balked. ‘Even the religious leaders trust the scientists,’ he said.”

   The transhumanist view is nothing more than a dressed up scientific naturalism. For those of you who understand the belief system that undergirds scientific naturalism, this makes perfect sense. There is no Creator and there is no need for such an antiquated idea. Since there is no Creator, the idea of a Savior is also unnecessary. 

   What follows from those two beliefs? What follows is that no Creator and no Savior means it is up to us to save ourselves. We can only save ourselves if we all come together in peace and devote our resources to figuring out solutions to our most pressing problems. This philosophy is variously described under the monikers of scientism – a religion based on a philosophy that only science presents truth, and secular humanism, which posits that humanity is capable of morality, self-fulfillment, and self-actualization without belief in a Creator God. Today, we find the cult of religious transhumanism dominating scientism and secular humanism. 

   Transhumanism, Artificial Intelligence, Climate Change, Food Sustainability, Energy Sustainability, and Over Population fears are all subjects being driven by globalists. What is their goal?

   Their goal is to first instill such a level of fear in the hearts and minds of people that they become unable to think about whether or not what they are being told is true. It is a form of propaganda that debilitates.

   Once this level of fear has been instilled, then the propaganda machine is cranked up to high and people will willingly obey whatever edict they are issued.

   It is my studied opinion that the health care industry has been weaponized and incentivized to kill. The evidence is all around us. The US government is at the center of this global push to reduce population. One strategy the US uses is to push other nations to adopt policies and health care practices in order to observe how they are received, how well they work, and then with a few tweaks, roll them out in America.

   We have had doctor-assisted suicide in America for a few decades. We better get ourselves prepared for what is happening in Canada now. It will be here soon.

   Canada Free Press published an article recently titled Canadian Government’s Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) Activity Book – Government Funded Propaganda.” The article’s author Judi McLeod wrote this:

   “The Canadian Virtual Hospice (a federal department of the Canadian Liberal Government) somehow found it necessary to help fund a children’s ‘activity book’ pushing medical assistance on dying to children...The book is split into eight chapters, the first seven of which answer questions like, ‘What is MAiD?’ and ‘Why would someone want MAiD?’ (Epoch Times, Dec. 22, 2022).

   “Conspicuously missing, a most pertinent question: ‘Why would someone NOT WANT MAiD?’

   “The book begins saying it was ‘created for young people, like you, who have someone in their life who may have MAiD’ and goes on to say that the book answers ‘questions, thoughts and feelings’ that children might have about medically assisted suicide. (Epoch Times).

   “‘It is best suited to children aged 6–12.’  How many children aged 6-12 go about pondering what Medical Assistance in Dying is all about? About the same number of children contemplating gender change until grade school teachers introduce the possibility to them!

   “The book ends with a small note crediting Health Canada for its ‘financial contribution,’ through which it says the book’s production was ‘made possible.’ (Epoch Times).

   “Now comes the Big Government Alibi: ‘The views expressed herein do not necessarily represent the views of Health Canada.’

   “The views of Health Canada are abundantly clear in its funding, it says here: ‘Made legal in Canada in 2016, MAiD is currently available only for mentally competent individuals aged 18 years or older who are physically and seriously ill — but not necessarily terminal — and are undergoing ‘unbearable physical or mental suffering’ and are also in an advanced state of decline. (Epoch Times)

   “The book’s eighth chapter is titled ‘A note for adults’ and gives a number of suggestions for answering possible questions by children about MAiD.

   “‘Adults sometimes worry that the answers to these questions may be ‘too scary,’ but if the child has asked the question, they have often imagined what the answer might be,’ the book reads.  ‘Imagining different possibilities can be scarier than reality.’

   “The book defines MAiD as using ‘medicines to stop the person’s body from working.  When their body stops working, the person dies. This is done in a way that does not hurt the person. The medicines help them feel comfortable and peaceful,’ it reads, later elaborating on the process of ‘three different medicines’ being injected into the patient to induce a coma followed by death.” 

   What have we learned via virtual classrooms here in America? We have learned that far too many teachers are destroying children’s minds with progressive, Marxist, wickedness, never meant for parental awareness. Can you imagine how this “virtual hospice” will be used to deceive children into ending their life?

   Right now, in the United Kingdom, the government is pushing voluntary euthanasia. Having a bad day at the office? You can take care of that permanently. Your spouse wants a divorce? Don’t put yourself through the heartbreak. 

   Why would nations deliberately plot to murder their own citizens unless it is part of a larger plan? The larger plan is what we read in the Scriptures about the end times deception that will come upon the entire world.

   The government of the Netherlands is deliberately destroying their ability to feed their citizens and anyone else in other nations by forcefully closing down farms.

In an article from Vox, summarized in Salvo, a magazine dedicated to debunking the cultural myths that secular humanism uses to destroy humanity, we read that:

   “Last year, Sri Lankan president Gotabaya Rajapaksa banned synthetic fertilizer and pesticide, saying they led to adverse health and environmental impacts and went against the country’s heritage of ‘sustainable food systems.’” In six months, rice production dropped 20 percent, and tea, the country’s biggest export product, dropped 18 percent. By July 2022, 90 percent of families were skipping meals, and the nation was on the verge of bankruptcy, with runaway inflation reaching 54.6 percent.

   “Commenting on the disaster, Discovery Institute’s Wesley J. Smith noted that the Netherlands is doing the same thing to its farmers, and Justin Trudeau in Canada is signaling plans to follow suit. ‘Add it all up,’  he wrote, ‘bankrupt farmers, empty market shelves, less food on the table, and dramatically inflated prices. Only the technocratic class could be this stupid.” 

   Recently, the new president of Brazil (stolen election) ruled that Brazilians who would not get the COVID jabs would be ineligible for government assistance of any kind.

   In a 1991 book titled, Behold a Pale Horse,” author William Cooper describes the history and origin of our current situation of millions of injuries, heart problems, blood clots, and sudden deaths of young and middle aged people with no history of disease or health issues. All the victims of what is being called “sudden death syndrome” is that they all received the so-called vaccine and boosters related to the alleged COVID virus. 

   The problem with too many people is that they hear this and scoff. They simply will not believe that anything like this could ever happen, even though it is in fact happening right now. It all seems too incredible.

   We could discuss Monkey Pox and Smallpox research and the creation of new supplies of each paid for by the US government. Why would the government spend billions of dollars on the creation of viruses that cause widespread death?  Isn’t the answer obvious?

   Jesus expects better of us. Jesus makes an interesting statement in the Gospel of John, chapter 2:23-25.

   “Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in His name, observing His signs which He was doing.  But Jesus, on His part, was not entrusting Himself to them, for He knew all men, and because He did not need anyone to testify concerning man, for He Himself knew what was in man.”

   Among other things this passage tells us is that we should not be naive about the hearts of men. We are admonished in Scripture to test the spirits, to discern the times, to be wise and observing toward people so that evil does not overtake us.

   The evil that we are seeing today is unprecedented. Wicked people have done a masterful job of inducing fear and terror into the lives of billions of people. Can the end game be as simple as offering people an “out” by suicide?  I think it is one of many strategies being employed.
We are witnessing the rise of the one world religion, an amalgamation of earth and science worship as the veneer that hides the true object of worship for all those who reject Jesus Christ – the devil himself.

   There has never been a better time to go all in for serving Jesus Christ. People everywhere are desperate for a solution. There is only one solution to the problem of mankind and this world – salvation through faith in Christ. This world is passing away. Eternity is forever. Let’s encourage people to trust in Jesus for their salvation and deliverance from what is coming upon the earth.
