Divided THEY Conquer?
Just who is trying to conquer us, anyway? And who is 'US'?
Who are THEY for that matter?
Can we choose to be neutral? Or do you have to pick a side?
How does one know?
When I refer to 'they' or 'them' in this post, I am referring to those who wish to control things from a position of power. And I also am referring to those whom I believe are either complicit in such seizure to power, or those who are misguided by the ego, thinking they have some self-righteous cause in mind because they know what is best because of their own inclination, guided by their ego - not any kind of higher power to which they prescribe. And one particular person or entity is the ultimate example of 'THEY'; Satan, the ultimate jealous one.
And that's just it, isn't it? We can go ahead and draw lines between who 'they' are, and the rest of us, just by following this line of reasoning:
that there are people who claim to know what's best for us because their ego tells them they're right, seeing as that they do not look elsewhere for anything higher than themselves for control...
And there are people such as myself, and many people like me, who answer to a higher authority, through faith. That higher authority is an Almighty Creator God, who also gave us His instructions through divinely inspired word to other men and women down through history, and He is who decides what is best...not us.
And let's go ahead and define 'us' in the broad sense for this post while I'm at it:
Us = Humanity
So do we get to pick a side? Technically speaking, you are a member of one side or the other whether you want to be or not. There isn't an in-between, where I believe in God sometimes, but not today...and there isn't really a fuzzy belief in there not being a God. You either believe, or you don't. Now, there are those who are more vocal about one side or the other, and there are various interpretations from there. And whichever belief you prescribe to - let's face it... you're either going to be proven correct one day - or proven wrong. So while one can choose not to vocalize, and try to remain on the fringe, outside looking in at the argument, but either not wanting to make waves because they're afraid to offend someone or lose a friend; or perhaps they wish to remain neutral because they think showing indifference never got anyone hurt. Well I will let you figure that one out for yourself, but see the previous line about eventually discovering who's right or who's wrong one of these days.
Why would I suggest that 'they' are trying to conquer 'us' anyway?
Let's break that down.
I don't care who you vote for, or who you believe in or not....it is perfectly clear that there are forces around the world that want the citizenry to all move along in one accord; that in order to have peace, there must be one way of thinking to be accepted, and everyone needs to march to that tune. There are governments around the world that want to FORCE what they think is best upon many people who are not in accord. This is true in America; this is true in Europe; this is obviously true in China; this is true in religions. Interpret that as you will, but one cannot deny that this is going on.
So what do you want to go along with? Do you want to give in to the urge to just go along to get along? Is that what's going to keep you safe? Just about everything except the religions by 'people of the book' (as described in the Quran) , leaves morality up for grabs; define your own truth. And then we get to those religions, and only one of them acknowledges that there is no way humanity could ever meet the perfect standards that our higher authority has set. But I digress for the moment. Can you at least admit to yourself that there is a general worldly pull... by governments... by celebrities... by global initiatives... to tell us what is best for us?
Now if you have a problem with me insisting that God the Father is the one and only ONE who gets to determine the fate of humanity, you need not read any further. But if you can tolerate me stating that for a moment, then please read on.
But I've said this before, and I'll say it again. In order for the entire world to march to the same drum, we're talking about at least half of the billions of people - being FORCED to do so.
So who gets to decide who is forced to do what? You? Me?
If you ask me, and again, it is implied that my opinion counts just enough for you to read the post :) , the only fair way to decide which direction everyone marches is if there is a true higher authority to do so. Kind of like when the father speaks up and makes a family decision, for the safety of the family. Sure, there may be disagreement, but if Father happens to be a Navy SEAL, the family will end up going with his decision if they know what's good for them. If they don't listen to the guy who has trained to know what's best when it comes to danger, then they probably won't survive the danger.
Apply that to God. If you are one of 'us' who believe God is who He says He is, then when He returns like He said He would, we better all go along in His direction (because it's obvious He knows best), or suffer consequences. That's the only way this all works out in the end.
No, you don't have to get involved in political debates. No - you don't have to announce your undying fealty to some political cause. But in the great big scheme of the world, when it is all said and done, you're going to have to pick a side.
Do you want to leave the fate of the world in global elites who get to decide what is best for you and me because THEY say it is? Or do you want to trust the creator of the universe?
That's pretty much what it boils down to.
