So much has been written about the Illuminati, the Global Elite, and various control structures that it might seem a worthless exercise to both research and write about such matters. Not only that, but there are dozens and dozens of sites, podcasts and documentaries devoted to these topics. Why add to the noise?
I admit there is a tinfoil hat element to these topics. Anyone who has delved into the broader subjects or any of the hundreds of ancillaries branching off them, quickly discovers that there is a lot of mystery, misdirection, and at times, outlandish “dot connecting” that resembles the conclusions of John Nash, from “A Beautiful Mind,” and leaves one wondering where the lines are between reality and imagination. It’s incredibly easy to get lost in the tangled maze of information.
But… What if you were to discover that much of what you have been convinced of since childhood is a distortion, or outright falsehood? What if there are, in fact, perpetrators of a massive, long-term plan who believe it is their right and duty to rule over you? Furthermore, what if they are compelled, due to their belief system, to project through certain symbols, the fact that these seemingly conspiratorial allegations are indeed true? What if you find yourself, like Neo in the Matrix, faced with the prospect that your reality is a well constructed lie?
I don’t pretend to have everything fleshed out and I readily admit that there are many, many folks who have a better understanding of it all. So why even attempt to outline or document this? I’ve wondered that myself. Ultimately, this is why I decided to include these topics on this site.
- We need to be like the men described in 1 Chronicles 12:32. This chapter describes the various groups of warriors that joined King David’s army following Saul’s death. Among them was a group of men from the tribe of Issachar. The Bible says that these men “understood the signs of the times and knew what Israel should do.” We need to understand the times, the cultural and spiritual atmosphere in which we live – in order to respond effectively.
- As a disciple of Jesus, I have believed since my early days of following him that we live as aliens and sojourners (temporary residents) on earth and that this realm is currently under the control of Lucifer and his followers. But that belief has morphed. What was once an intellectual confession has moved deeper into my being. What we have witnessed these past two years in terms of coordinated, global efforts to coerce and control the masses, coupled with what I can only describe as evil unmasked, has given new understanding to the reality of Ephesians 6:12, where Paul warns us that, “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”
The Greek for rulers here is archē (pronounced ar-khay’), which means the first place, principality, rule, magistracy [cf. English ‘authorities’]. Hence the term is transferred by Paul to angels and demons holding dominions entrusted to them in the order of things.
Once you understand that virtually every narrative from the history we learn, the notion of red vs blue political structures and the benevolence of the modern medical system, to cultural movements like the 60’s counter culture, BLM/Cultural Marxism, the blurring of the lines of gender and attempted erasure of the nuclear family – once you understand that these are not merely naturally occurring societal shifts, but carefully constructed and planned efforts – you begin to see that the forces behind such things are not the power brokers but the spiritual rulers of this plane.
This sort of realization can drive some to despair and hopelessness. If that’s you, please understand that it has been this way for millennia. This is not new. And while you may discover previously unknown ways it manifests, it doesn’t change the fact that Lucifer has had and will continue to have authority on earth until Jesus returns to set things right. Instead, cling to the hope of Jesus and drive yourself toward him, not despair.
Objections to the notion of elite bloodlines
As I’ve discussed various aspects of these topics with people over the years, the typical questions asked are along the lines of, “Why would people from a hundred or more years ago work toward something they will never see?” Another typical question is, “How could there be such global coordination of influence and control, given so many competing agendas around the world?“
The best way I can answer these questions is to say that:
Those involved in these groups do in fact enjoy influence and control, as well as the earthly benefits of extreme wealth and power, during their brief time at the helm. But they also play the long game. They look out years, sometimes decades toward the achievement of a particular objective. Personally, I believe the reason for that long term view is two-fold.
- First and foremost, they are involved at the upper echelons in a religion, whose god they serve faithfully and who they believe to be the ultimate wielder of power.
- Second, they want to “keep it in the family” so to speak, so they are careful to keep the power, wealth, and knowledge confined to their own. These two components drive them to these goals that often take years to materialize.
Probably the most compelling objection is along the lines of, “So what? How does learning this information change my pursuit of and adherence to Christ?” I concede that is a valid point. Ultimately it doesn’t.
I would only add that the Bible is clear regarding Satan and how he operates. Just above the Eph 6:12 verse cited previously, Paul says, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.”
In Revelation 12:9, John writes, “And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”
And finally, Paul, when writing to the Corinthians about restoring and forgiving someone who had hurt them deeply, reminded them that, “When you forgive this man, I forgive him, too. And when I forgive whatever needs to be forgiven, I do so with Christ’s authority for your benefit, so that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs.”
So while I agree that on one hand, one could argue that we simply need to understand that Satan is a liar and deceiver and we combat him by pursuing Jesus. But it could also be said that we should truly understand that this really is Satan’s domain. The forces behind the things we pursue and often let into our lives, from politics to entertainment to religion, are not just influenced by dark forces – they are controlled by them.
The more we understand that – the more we understand the schemes of the devil – the more we are like the men of Issachar and will understand what needs to be done. Most importantly, the more we will be driven to rely on Jesus and not our own discernment and strength.
