Conspiracies in the Bible, part 2
Conspiracy to Overthrow King David
In 2 Samuel, we read of another conspiracy (chapters 13-19) about one waged by Absalom against is father, David. Absalom conspired to have his brother Amnon killed. This caused bad blood between Absalom and David. Now, this was a government conspiracy and one at the highest level. Keep in mind it is this kind of conspiracy that the media and the Leftist/antichrists say that don’t exist.
Absalom had persuaded over 200 leading men of Israel to side with him, he suddenly proclaimed himself king according to plan. A battle ensued where 20,000 men were killed. Then, Absalom came to his untimely end when some of David’s men killed him while he was entangled in the tree.
(Psa 64:2) Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
(Psa 64:3) Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
(Psa 64:4) That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
(Psa 64:5) They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
(Psa 64:6) They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
(Psa 64:7) But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
(Psa 64:8) So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.
(Psa 94:20) Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
(Psa 94:21) They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
Jeremiah Knew About Conspiracies
(Jer 5:26) For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.
(Jer 5:27) As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.
(Jer 5:28) They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.
Conspiracies are well documented in the Bible. It should be obvious to anyone that belief in conspiracies does not make one odd or paranoid. Whey pretend conspiracies don’t exist. The existence of conspiracies is a fact of life” Truly, someone would be a wacko to deny it – or they would be the enemy. Some may try to discount conspiracies by reminding us of certain false claims that have been made about conspiracies that never really existed. There is no question that false claims have been made about non-existent conspiracies. There are always false claims about any theory. But false conspiracies are put out by those who try to cover up the real ones. What they do is to promote a false one only to later knock it down. This is what is known as a “straw man,” in order to discredit wholesale any person or group that believes in conspiracies.
Conspiracies happens at all levels in life. If you don’t know what to look for you’ll be a victim of the conspiracy. By not knowing what is really happening, you are manipulated to think and act in certain ways. You believe vaccines prevents flues because you are told so.
There are conspiracies on the political level, on the religious level and on the advertising level – to name a few. You can become a victim of a conspiracy and not even know it. It’s funny but sad that those who believe in everything that the media tells them also have the most complaints in life – they just can’t figure things out. And the reason why they can’t is, that they rule out what they were told was a lie or a conspiracy. And when they do that, they’ll never learn the solution of what has to be done.
Conspiracy of Church Doctrine
There are conspiracies in the church, too. That doesn’t mean that the preacher knows about it, though sometime they do. If you don’t believe what is told in the churches, you are a wacko. (They will only say this to another Christian. If this was said to a Jew or Muslim this would not be “politically correct.”) For example, you know that there is no Rapture but the church believes that and if you don’t, you are thrown out; if you are a Catholic, you are excommunicated.
The truth is out there but you will not hear it from officialdom.
(Eze 22:25) There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.
(Eze 22:26) Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.
(Eze 22:27) Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.
Right here we are told of conspiracy by the prophets. This, of course, would be the modern-day preachers. The government loves this, as this is exactly what they want the Christians to believe. In short, “not to worry, don’t get involved in politics,” and “give unto Caesar what is Caesar as you will all be whisked off to Heaven.”
These verses apply to today’s society as much as in Ezekiel’s day. The “prophets” were God’s spokesmen in Israel. They were supposed to be the keepers of truth. The “priests” were the ministers; the administrators of those truths supposedly for the good of the people. The “princes” were the leaders who were supposed to put those truth into action and enforce them.
Notice how prophets, priests and princes (church and state) conspire together. Both Jeremiah and Ezekiel tell us that the public is so corrupt that it loves the conspiracy. We read:
(Jer 5:30) A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land;
(Jer 5:31) The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
Notice that the priests are empowered to rule by the prophets who prophesy falsely. That is a conspiracy of church and state!
How does this work today? The churches teach their people that the U.S. Government rules by authority of God. They teach that the U.S. Government is the best government in the world; that the Constitution is God-inspired. They ignore the difference between God’s government and man’s government, and thus they strengthen the Beast System while blinding the people to the hope of freedom promised under God’s government. Man rules over man because the religious leaders brainwash the people – robbing them of the truth; and teaching them to submit to slavery and ungodly government.
