Dear people who don’t understand the parallels of our lives depicted in the movie ‘The Matrix’:
Conspiracy Theory. A phrase that sounds mysterious and dooming, yet, to many it is shaken off as a fluke. I don’t like the phrase ‘conspiracy theory’ because it alludes to the fact that the subject matter at hand is a joke, a bunch of tall tales, and bedtime stories. A better phrase would be ‘What’s Really Going On’. I don’t fall victim to every single story cooked up by someone who has nothing but space and opportunity to divulge useless information. But, I will sit back and take out the time to LISTEN to a series of FACTUAL events and information that make sense.
I began to look at our world differently of course after the infamous 11th day of September, 2001 when things began to CHANGE. I watched Michael Moore’s famous movie ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ and like other people, were taken aback by the information he provided. Even more recently, I treated my mother to an afternoon at the theatre to catch his latest flick ‘Capitalism: A Love Story’ and somewhere in between I caught the movie ‘Sicko’.
Although disturbing on so many levels, Michael Moore’s movies only scratch the surface of ‘what’s really going on’. I remember when Obama got elected and people racists started flipping out (even though every president since the beginning has been nothing but a mere puppet), and then people started finding random mixed tapes of old Jay-Z songs that seemed to say demonic things once played backwards (Jay-Z dismisses this as someone else mixing it wrong), and then I kept hearing all this stuff about a New World Order (which I think is unlikely to happen if people wake up and realize that THEY are the government). All of this stuff was weird, but it didn’t really give me what I needed to fully think that our society was corrupt.
See, I’m a spiritual person and my faith in the Lord and Jesus Christ is stronger than ever. I’m not going to get religious or start thumping my Bible. But others that have a strong faith will understand my views a lot better than the average non-believer, I think. See, sometimes I think that people are expecting the book of Revelation to be played out literally like it is metaphorically outlined in the Bible. I think they are expecting a pale horse, and a black horse, and a three headed monster, and a seductress to somehow appear in the sky before they will believe that Jesus is coming back. I think they believe that Revelation is referencing the End of the World and that the numbers (3 six) will be blatant and in front of our faces to easily reject. Well, I actually look at things slightly differently.
To discuss every single conspiracy theory and what facts and supporting information drive it will likely take up thousands of pages more, so I’m not going to go into that. But I will say that I believe the evil one has been roaming this planet since the beginning of time and has influenced everything from our government, to entertainment, to our consumer buying habits, etc. etc. They say the biggest trick that the evil one has played is to make people think that his existence is unreal, or that in order for him to be real he will have to appear in red skin with horns and a pointy tale with a pitch fork to add to fashion. It has become natural for humans to say that someone is crazy or a ‘conspiracy theorist’ when they are aware of the evil one finding his way into our minds, our music, our food, our health, etc.
It’s hard for people to realize that many things that are the fiber of our very beginning as a world and nation have been heavily influenced by demonic signs and symbols. Simple research would do the trick, but people are scared and they don’t want to believe that they’ve been duped for most of their natural lives. In my opinion, the book of Revelation symbolizes what will eventually be REVEALED about everything we know, love, and trust; but it won’t be a big deal because those that believed, had faith and followed the teachings would be adequately prepared for it all. Going any further will require me to write 1,000 research papers, so I will happily digress…
