What the average fan of Beyoncé does not realize is that she is a creation. Katy Perry, Rihanna and others like them are all creations. When these people make the mistake of thinking they are self-made or truly important, the Elite will drop them like yesterday’s trash, easily replacing them with another person who will willingly sell themselves for fame, fortune, and unfulfilled aspirations. No matter how rich they become, they are being used until there is nothing left of them, but they willingly allow themselves to be used by the Elite so the Elite can send signals to society, to shape it, to brainwash it, and ultimately prepare society for what’s coming.
There are numerous opinions as to how ISIS came into being, who is supplying them with weapons and how they are funded. Opinions range from the CIA (USA) created ISIS and weapons of mass destruction were illegally sent to ISIS groups in Syria under cover of the upheaval during Qaddafi’s overthrow in Libya, to the Saudi Arabians created and continue to fund the terrorist organization. There are other possibilities as well. Among so-called conspiracy theorists and theories, ISIS was created, weaponized, funded, and directed by the most powerful cabal in the world, the Elite (also known by numerous other names).
However, in today’s world, it has become very difficult in some ways to minister to other people. I wrote half in jest on a social network the other day that there are essentially two types of people in this world, those who agree with you and those who don’t. That’s essentially it and when we are talking with folks who do not agree with us, the conversation can come to an abrupt end. We saw this during Paul’s ministry as he worked his way through Asia Minor. In Acts 17, Paul is at various places and tries to reason with the individuals there. In general, he was laughed at and called a “babbler.” He and Silas were chased from one place to another.
Here was a man who – because of his faith in Jesus – was being harassed to the point where those persecuting and judging him dragged him outside the city and stoned him to death. So aligned with Satan’s purposes (not God’s even though they were the “religious” leaders of Israel), that they were blind to the heinous act they were committing. I’m sure they imagined they were doing God a favor, like what radicalized Muslims do today. Yet, in spite of their abject hatred of Stephen and the truth he preached, Stephen was so in line with God’s purposes that he stepped in for these men – on their behalf – and as his final request, asked God not to count this sin against them.
The tragedy today that is infiltrated the (visible) church (or Christendom at large) is due to the occult and the interest that many even in the church are finding with this prohibited area. It boasts of secrecy that opens itself up to those who seek it, a hidden knowledge that, if searched for diligently, will offer rewards for humanity and self. This of course, is seen in Christian terms because the Bible promises that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (cf. Proverbs 8:17; Hebrews 11:6). What that is referring to is that He will reward people who seek Him for salvation. That is the entirety of the “secret” knowledge. Satan of course, wants us to believe that God will open the portals to secret wisdom found only in the heavenly realms or other dimensions.
People too often prefer to divorce contemplative practices like meditation, silencing your mind, etc., from religion, believing only that Yoga, mindfulness, and other practices are simply exercises that help people achieve a relaxed or focused state of mind. They do not necessarily see these things as connected to the metaphysical, religious and/or spiritual realm at all. For people who think that way, Mindfulness then is simply an exercise that one enters into to help regulate breathing in order to become more focused and intentional.
I’m not sure why he would think that since in another comment, I had already told him I am a Christian. The afterlife does not only not bother me, but I look forward to it! What Christian does not look forward to it? In the after life, Christians will have the real experience of having our sin natures completely removed from us. Hence, there will never be another chance to sin, to fall short. Moreover, we will be given new, glorified bodies that will never become corrupted. They will never die. Who would not look forward to that? But because I tried to direct him to simply ask questions about his “experience” he took umbrage.
