All Will Stand talks about politics, only when it is fitting and from a biblical viewpoint. At times talks of what would be considered ‘conspiracy theories’ are mentioned. As with any conspiracy theory, it is simply a theory, the Word of God is the only guaranteed Truth.
“Then Simon Peter answered Him, Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the Words of eternal life. And we have believed and understood that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” John 6:68-69
Yet there has been a conspiracy against mankind, only the focus is always on the people behind it, yet who is behind them?
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against authorities, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies.” Ephesians 6:12
“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who leads the whole world astray; he was cast out onto the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Revelation 12:9
While All Will Stand’s primary focus is never theoretical or based off of conspiracies, can what is portrayed as truth, from a worldly and government standpoint, not be false? How can we be assured that what happens behind the scenes is really as it seems, though this is not the focal point.
“For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” 1st Corinthians 2:2
Yet, when the preaching is not necessarily directed towards those who are Saved, but to the lost, there are many out there who do not believe or trust what they are being told. Let me put it into a brief perspective here.
President Trump has spent years, campaigning and then as President of the United States, calling the media ‘fake news’. At first it was rather humorous, but as time goes on and even now in the midst of the Coronavirus Task Force press conferences, the term ‘fake news’ is still being tossed out there left and right. He has made the nation to be a nation of conspiracy theorists, who do not believe what they are being told.
This is not isolated to the United States, so now we have some people acting out on it, different theories abound everywhere about what is going on. Yet, shall we watch the news (or read it) and believe what we read? Have we not had it drilled into our minds that it is fake? Is this perhaps the beginning of casting ‘truth down to the ground’ (Da. 8:12)???
A pastor of a Church has a different calling. While they are there to ‘feed the sheep’ (John 21:15-17), there are others who are preaching to a lost world. The world certainly is lost and the Bible makes it quite clear that Satan leads the ‘whole world astray’ (Rev. 12:9).
The focus shouldn’t be on conspiracies. Even if they could be proven to not be a conspiracy, but rather fact, this avails no one listening in the end. Preaching the Gospel, that every man, woman and child should repent and believe into Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior is truly the only thing that matters.
“Then Peter said to them, Repent, and let every one of you be immersed in the name of Jesus Christ to the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38
“The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some count slowness, but is longsuffering toward us, not purposing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 2nd Peter 3:9
“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,”… Acts 3:19
“But what does it say? The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the Word of Faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, Everyone believing on Him will not be put to shame. For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich toward all who call upon Him.” Romans 10:8-12
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man some would even be bold enough to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to every person, because everyone sinned. For until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not accounted when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many. And the gift is not like it was through the one who sinned. For the judgment from one offense was unto condemnation, but the free gift from many offenses is unto justification. For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who are receiving abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment was to every person unto condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift is to every person unto justification of life. For as through one man’s disobedience many were declared sinners, so also through one Man’s obedience many will be declared righteous. Moreover the Law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness unto eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 5:6-21
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. The one believing into Him is not judged; but the one not believing is judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the Light and does not come to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But the one doing the truth comes to the Light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been worked in God.” John 3:16-21
“Jesus said to him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
Yet, even amongst this, the biggest ‘names’ in the conspiracy theory business are pushing rhetoric that the ‘mark of the beast’ (Rev. 13:16) and other things that are in the Bible are taking place right before our very eyes.
Perhaps very soon that will turn out to be true. But these pundits of conspiracy theories, who have tens of millions of listeners, have no basis on the Word of God. They are ignorant, they are lost and even though some of their theories might very well be true, they do not have the ultimate Truth. Yet these same people will be quick to tell you they are Christians, though they seem to have no knowledge of the things of God (2 Tim. 3:5).
“Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into the ditch.” Matthew 15:14
No, the world is not yet in the ‘time of Jacob’s trouble’ (Jer. 30:7), better known as the Tribulation. The Rapture, of which the biggest names in the conspiracy business scoff at, hasn’t yet happened.
“For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we watch or sleep, we should live together with Him.” 2nd Thessalonians 5:9-10
One day the world will find itself in the biggest conspiracy of them all, Left Behind. Do not let that be you, seek God while He may be found.
“Seek Jehovah while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to Jehovah, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7
