The people of Islam are doing the Puppet Masters bidding

Let me state up front, this post is not about the title with regards to explaining it in detail.  Just know that it is not entirely because of Muhammad and his teachings that things are going down how they are right now.  There is a world order or network of people who are controlling all of our futures with regard to economy, government, infrastructure, and religion.  You have to figure out your world view in order to determine how you will handle the changes that are already taking place and that are yet to come.

Now for the bulk of this post: How is a Christian to respond to the turmoil going on throughout the world?

I just watched the trailer that has incited the violence in Libya (supposedly incited I should say) and I have to say that this is a sham.  There is no way that this little “trailer” that is 13 minutes long (and so amateurish that I could produce a better one with my HD Flip video recorder using just myself as all the actors) has been the cause of all the violence going on at American embassies in Egypt and Libya.

So, here is how I believe Christians should respond.

1. Recognize that there are forces at work beyond the film and beyond those performing the riots.  Some of those might be and probably are spiritual, but there is a very human element orchestrating all of this so near to election time in the U.S. coupled with the Israel/U.S./Iran/Russia/Syria nuclear ambitions that are happening.

Do not be duped into thinking that this was a Jewish backed movie made to discount the Islamic faith.  That is preposterous.  Mainly because Jews are WAY to wealthy to have allowed such a sloppy film to have been made and attached to their name. Also, the true or Orthodox Jews that are doing well financially would not have backed a movie, even to discredit their foes, with such sexual overtones.  It is dishonorable to their God. So keep doing your research to find out who is behind this that is beyond what the media is feeding us right now.

2. Recognize that you can be and probably will be persecuted for your faith in Jesus Christ.  It is coming.  Prepare yourself by being sure of what you believe, being able to give an account to anyone who asks.

“And who will harm you if you are passionate for what is good?! But even if you should suffer for righteousness, you are blessed. Do not fear what they fear or be disturbed, but set apart the Messiah as Lord in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you. However, do this with gentleness and respect, keeping your conscience clear, so that when you are accused, those who denounce your Christian life will be put to shame. For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil.” 1 Peter 3:13-17

3. Government rulers are put into place to wield the sword of justice according to the Apostle Paul in Romans 13. Read that chapter to see how you should relate to government authorities.  It doesn’t mean that you have to follow them blindly, but recognize that God is accomplishing His plans and purposes through them so focus on God for daily direction in your life, not the government.

4. When possible, live at peace with all men. This is not permission for you to let people walk all over you either, nor is it permission to not stand up for those who cannot defend themselves against the tyranny of others.  But do recognize that love covers a multitude of sins.

“Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Try to do what is honorable in everyone’s eyes. If possible, on your part, live at peace with everyone. Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for His wrath.” Romans 12:17-19a

5. Realize that those who are not followers of Jesus should not be expected to adhere to Christian principles and morality.  Do not expect from the world to behave in ways that they do not know or that they do not have the motivation to follow.  This will save you a lot of frustration in your understanding of different worldviews.  Take time to try to understand where they are coming from and then you will be better equipped to minister to their needs.

The basic premise seems to be: realize that the world is full of totally depraved people doing depraved things.  Allow God to use you where you are to make the impact that He wants to make to accomplish His purposes.

    Certainly agree with all of this, Keith. This is a word much needed, if people will take time to read it, to see the big picture. Can I post the link to your blog, and this article, on Facebook?

    This reminds me of scripture I just read: 1 Corinthians 2: 11-16 “11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words. 14 The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 The spiritual man makes judgement about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgement: 16 ‘For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?’ But we have the mind of Christ.

    The world at its present state concerns and frightens me. I see dark times ahead. Lil Man & I pray every morning & we include our government officials in those prayers. I no longer trust the media. And I rarely listen to the opinions of many people because they base those opinions on said media. All the lies, distortions, twist of truths show me most everyone is running after their own agendas, more so than ever before. Our country needs to reevaluate where we’re heading.

    We as Christians need to turn inward & listen to what the Spirit of God is telling us. We need to look to Him in every instance but it’s so easy to get sidetracked by our humanness. We get distracted by the hype of the world & let our human emotions guide us instead of God. It makes a verse from a song pop into my head:

    “Let hope arise and make the darkness hide.
    My faith is dead. I need a resurrection somehow.

    Now I’m lost in your freedom
    And this world I’ll overcome!

    My God’s not dead, he’s surely alive!
    He’s living on the inside, roaring like a lion!”

    That’s all I have to say about that. 😉

    Love you,
    Sis

      Sorry for the delay in responding. Great input. I am to the point where I do not believe any government is free from corruption, even ours at its founding had deceit or at least hypocrisy built into it. We like to paint rosey pictures of our founding fathers but the reality is, they were men just like the rest of us.

      You are on track though with your insight. Deal with yourself. Each person is accountable as an individual before our Maker. Get right with God first, then invest yourself in spreading the redemption of Christ through the various means at your disposal.

      Thanks for reading and posting.

      Love you,

      Lil’ Bro
