Stand firm then … with the breastplate of righteousness in place … Ephesians 6:14 (NIV)
Let's take a trip back in time. Climb inside your DeLorean and hang on!
It's the late 1940's. WWII, the most devastating conflict in human history is over. Men and women all over the world are returning home to their loved ones, ready to restart their lives and get things back to normal, working farms, having babies and living with them in peace and prosperity. But some people's idea of prosperity is very different than others. This becomes terribly apparent in the war-torn remnants of Nazi Germany. After having its economy, landscape and its very people beaten beyond all recognition, a struggle arises between the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, a.k.a., the Soviet Union, over whose way of life is a better model for the ravaged country (or maybe it's just that the U.S.S.R. wants the territory for itself … anyway). Suffice to say that a wall is erected and two of the world's most powerful countries, and former allies, are locked in a conflict that would last decades longer than almost any other war in history, the so-called Cold War.
It was during this period that men, bent on world domination, hatched a plan that could “destroy any country from within”. A plan that focuses on celebrating the people's differences; ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc. instead of applauding what unites them as a people. A plan where the people who are marginalized because of their social, economic, or their racial status are elevated out of their misery by forcing those who are unfairly privileged simply because of the color of their skin or who their parents were, to redistribute their wealth to provide for the needs of those who are less fortunate. Does this sound like an effective plan to you?
Now, we'll jump forward to the 1950's. The economy is booming, industry is growing, and the people of the United States have little more to worry about than how their favorite ball team is doing in the standings. But there are some who are concerned. The threat of communism seems to be lurking around every corner. Senator Joseph McCarthy is spearheading multiple investigations into accusations of subversion and treason, even when there is no evidence to back up the accusers. The “Space Race” is in full swing, but it has little to do with getting men into space. The real reason the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. are feverishly working to develop powerful missiles is their quest to be the first to have the capability to reach the other's territory to deliver a nuclear strike. For this reason, many people in many countries begin to live in fear, building bomb shelters and conducting “Duck and Cover” drills in schools in a vain attempt to alleviate those fears. But the real threat is much more sinister. The KGB, a soviet spy organization has begun a program, training operatives to come to America, blend in to society, living normal lives, taking jobs in local governments and elsewhere. They become Mayors, members of the city council, firefighters, police officers, etc. They start businesses, work in factories and raise families, joining community forums like the PTA, the Rotary Club, masonic organizations, etc. All the while, these “assets” lie in wait to be activated and begin their assault at the very fabric of our society, all in the name of equality.
Do you think that this sounds like the plot of a popular TV show from a few years ago? My father used to say, “The truth is stranger than fiction”.
There is a man named Yuri Bezmenov. He is a former KGB officer who defected to Canada back in the 1980's. The following link will take you to a Youtube video entitled, Yuri Bezmenov: Deception was my job. In it, he explains at length exactly how this plan was implemented, what the goals were, and how long it would take to achieve them. Hint: We're seeing the results on the nightly news.
Here's the video:
In the video above, you will hear terms like “social justice”, spoken in an era long before we ever heard them in
the broadcast media, let alone social media. They started with racial inequality, the most reasonable of all
movements, establishing themselves as advocates of the marginalized and the down-trodden. Then they moved on
to feminism, then to the hippies and their “anti-war” and then the “free love” movements, the
latter designed to break down the country's moral foundation that was based in Judeo-Christian values. Then they
took up the cause of sexual deviants of every stripe. While their message and stated goals were very attractive to
much of the country, what they were really doing is separating us. They were creating microcosms within our
population where there was once only patriotism and unity. Gone were the days of putting one's life on-the-line in
the name of what's best for society. Blossoming were the selfish concerns of those who craved not equality, but
superiority based on whatever was unique about their personal situation. Hidden within calls for “justice for
all” was their desire to spread socialism and deride capitalism, the most effective means of economic
development for giving the average person a chance to “pick themselves up by their boot straps” and better
themselves, in the history of mankind. The road was now paved for “social justice”, and the goal was simple …
Divide and conquer.
What the Soviets did was begin to unravel the tapestry of what was once the strength of American society, its diversity. They strove to replace it with self-centered ideals, based only in the drive to better the individual's position within that society without regard to how it affected those around them. But all of this is just a means to an end. And the end is simple.
The thief comes only to steal, to kill and destroy … John 10:10 (NIV)
We Christians must see through the fog of this delusional thinking. Instead of buying in to the “us” vs “them” mentality, we have to be the ones who strive to unite the splintering ideologies of the “enemy”. With Jesus as our ally, we must be the ones that celebrate what people have in common rather than what makes us “unique”. Being unique isn't a bad thing. God made us all unique. But to define ourselves by our differences is not much more than arrogance.
Next time, you'll learn about a conspiracy and hoax that's so big, it boggles the mind.
Today is the day. Now is the time. The battle is on!
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)
