Subtitle: The Synthesis Of Creationism Vs. Darwinism?
In many Cutting Edge articles the Hegelian Dialectic of thesis versus antithesis equals synthesis has been shown to be active in competing governmental ideologies. The thesis of Capitalism versus the antithesis of Communism equals the synthesis of Fascism and this blending of diverse elements could very well be the dictatorial system employed by the antichrist. Fascism allows private ownership of business, but output and sales are strictly controlled by the government.
And there is another movement taking shape that is equally insidious. The ongoing and extremely heated debate between the thesis of Creationism versus the antithesis of Darwinism (evolution) appears to be headed for the synthesis of "Intelligent Design." This compromise which rejects both the creative act of God and the mathematically impossible odds posed by evolution (as it applies to the spontaneous origin of the species), is headed toward a position which will lend itself to a growing subliminal belief among the masses. The premise--whether overtly stated or not--is that our existence is due to the work of a superior intelligence beyond planet Earth. And that intelligence is not God, but an advanced civilization of "extra-terrestials."
As David Bay has often said: "Conditioning, conditioning, conditioning!" This world with its ever-increasing emphasis upon "group-think" is being manipulated by supernatural forces and precious few are even aware of it. The fascination with space travel and UFO's continues to capture the imagination of millions and a mind set is slowly taking shape that fully expects aliens to invade the Earth and take over. And Hellywood (spelling intentional) is doing everything in its power to reinforce this belief by cranking out movies and television specials on the subject.
Recently I read a very interesting article about this present generation and its unprecedented attitude of protectiveness where their children are concerned. Individualism is being discouraged and teamwork emphasized. Public schools, organized sports and the work place are contributing to the "team player" concept. Their reasoning is that unity and conformity are to be sought to insure the common good. The "rugged individualist" of the past--the maverick entrepreneur who took chances to achieve financial/political success--is frowned upon because that path is not safe. Seeking one's own niche in life by daring to be different and not following the herd has become a frightening prospect to them. So without even realizing it, moms and dads are being duped into turning their kids into psychological lemmings! My friends, this same thing has already happened in China, Viet Nam, and North Korea. Well over a billion people have been rendered docile and thoroughly conditioned to conform to the political/social/economic whims of their leaders. And our country is definitely on the fast track toward that same Illuminist goal.
What should believers do to stop this mass slide into the arms of antichrist? The only thing we can or should do is continue to be faithful and witness for Jesus Christ until He removes us by death or the rapture--whichever comes first.
"For the mystery of lawlessness (that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority) is already at work in the world, [but it is] restrained only until he who restrains is taken out of the way. 2 Thes. 2:7 (Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified).
At first glance it would appear that the concept of unity and docility of the masses is contrary to the "hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority." But please note that the principle is hidden. It's aim is to destroy the authority of God and must remain hidden until the time is right for it to be unleashed. And when the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit (not the Spirit Himself) is removed at the Rapture of the Church, God's plan regarding the judgment of Israel, along with the rest of the world, will be implemented by "the man of sin"--Satan incarnate. And all those who have been pre-programmed will conform to his plan without even giving it a second thought!
Adolph Hitler proved beyond doubt that great numbers of people--including professed Christians--can be mesmerized into embracing attitudes and actions far removed from social norms. He pushed every psychological button imaginable in his rise to power and we can only imagine how much more successful the devil will be when his Rosicrucian/Freemason "christ" comes upon the scene. Unregenerate men are spiritually dead and slaves of Satan, so why should it be a surprise to anyone that they will follow him by the millions? The Apostle Paul spoke of that fact when he made the following comment about the former lifestyle of believers:
"In which at one time you walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God]" Ephes. 2:2 (Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified, emphasis mine).
I have said it before and now say it again--all who do not know Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior are demon possessed! Possession denotes ownership and either God owns you or the devil does--it's just that simple, because there are no other options. And even though the Lord was speaking to Pharisees at the time, the following principle applies to everyone who does not belong to Him:
"You are of your father, the devil, and it is your will to practice the lusts and gratify the desires [which are characteristic] of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false" John 8:44 (Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified).
The father of lies has conjured up an absolute doozy (or is it doozie?) to spring upon the citizens of Earth when his man comes into power:
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie" 2 Thes. 2:9-11 (KJV, emphasis mine).
What is the great lie that God will actually help Satan to pull off? The Bible does not supply us with a specific answer, but may I be so bold as to suggest that it involves the person of the antichrist and his claim to be the Christ--the Messiah of Israel? The overwhelming majority will refuse to receive "the love of the truth," so God will allow them--yes even help them--to believe that monstrous lie and be eternally damned.
What is the love of the truth and how may one receive it? Well, the Bible clearly tells us Who "the truth" is in the following statement:
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" John 14:6 (KJV, emphasis mine).
So the love of the truth is unfeigned love for Jesus Christ and acknowledgement of His deity. Those who are born into the family of God through spiritual regeneration (being born again) receive the love of the truth and follow Him:
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me" John 10:27 (KJV).
But all those who do not receive that supernatural love are goats and will reject Jesus Christ to follow the one who comes in his own name:
"I have come in My Father's name and with His power, and you do not receive Me [your hearts are not open to Me, you give Me no welcome]; but if another comes in his own name and his own power and with no other authority but himself, you will receive him and give him your approval" John 5:43 (Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified).
These words of the Lord are clearly prophetic in that the man of sin--the antichrist--is going to come in his own name and power. He will not claim to be Jesus Christ, but rather (his own name) christ! And the supernatural power he will demonstrate before the masses will be that of his father the devil:
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders" 2 Thes. 2:9 (KJV).
Today orthodox Jews are anxiously anticipating the coming of their Messiah, but are blind to the fact that He came to them 2000 years ago. And when the antichrist comes upon the scene working stupendous miracles, they will welcome him with open arms! From their earliest days as a people, God led them by miracles and their collective "national psyche" has been conditioned to respond to that stimulus. So for the man of sin to be accepted as their "messiah" he must convince them in that manner. And convince them he will--along with untold numbers of false christians who are professors and not possessors.
Have you ever thought about what the "all power and signs and lying wonders" might be? I certainly have and based upon the growing public fascination with UFO's and extra-terrestials, believe it probable that such things will attend the unveiling of the super politician and world leader the Bible tells us is going to rule over Earth for seven years. And as we have stated in other articles, UFO's have to be fact and not fiction, because there is simply too much accumulated evidence by credible witnesses to dismiss them. But at the same time we must understand that making ninety degree turns at incredible speeds violate the laws of physics. (Such gyrations have been seen on radar and attested to by experts). According to those laws, nothing possessing mass can possibly do such a thing and this leads us to conclude they are of supernatural origin--not aliens coming from some "advanced civilization" in outer space.
So if I were the devil and wanted to soften up people to accept my man as their leader, I definitely would make every effort to discredit the belief that God created the world and everything in it. A vital part of my strategy would be to create a point of view that would allow a compromise between creationism and atheistic evolution. Because I am convinced only a relative few truly believe in either of these opposing concepts and the majority are sitting on the fence somewhere in the middle. Therefore, the synthesis--the compromise--of "Intelligent Design" will likely draw from those merely leaning in one direction or the other and combine them into a majority position.
The intellectual danger for Christians is that the position of intelligent design is preferable to evolution. But we must understand it is still poison because it denies a Sovereign and all-powerful Creator-God. As I have stated before, it would be far easier for me to swallow the concept that humans are a science project of little green men from Mars than merely the product of random chance. Betting that a turtle will outrun a race horse has far better odds than does the spontaneous generation of life via evolution.
Have you received the love of the truth?
If you have been born again and received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never placed your trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior, but have come to sense His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to receive His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you truly believe in Him as Lord and Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually. If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order—Kingdom of Antichrist—in their daily news.
