Introduction to Chapter 4:
ALMOST EVERY THINKING PERSON HAS AT SOME TIME SUSPECtED A WORLDWIDE CONSPIRACY OF POWER, BUT THE THOUGHT OF SUCH AN INTRICATE GLOBAL ENTITY REACHES BEYOND THE SCOPE OF OUR COMPREHENSION. We can easily recognize conspiracy in government, especially within the parties. As long as the idea of a conspiracy is seen only as related to governments and world organizations it is limited to the scope, influence and intellect of natural man. Very few people recognized that the worldwide conspiracy discussed in this book is clearly laid out in the Bible. Even those who have seen it lack any reasonable way to respond to it that would make a difference in our lives.
(The Spiritual Guide section of each chapter should be reviewed after reading the corresponding chapter.)
There may be a remote possibility that we can postpone how soon this will happen. But, as you will discover, if those in power have their way this will happen very soon. Fortunately, the steps we need to take to live during any challenging time are the same steps we need to take to live and overcome through the dark days of wickedness. All victory starts by discovering and experiencing what Jesus accomplished through His death, burial, and resurrection. You may consider my series, Three Days that Changed the World in order to come to a more biblical understanding and value for the cross. After all, our faith is not based on what Jesus accomplished in His life; it is based on what He accomplished through the cross.
The Bible tells us we need to believe on the resurrection of Jesus in our heart. It has to be experienced. It must become our reality. When that happens we will have shifted in our sense of self. Our identity will become one with His identity. Any truth that is believed in the heart changes your sense of identity and gives us the capacity for effortless, victorious living.
As a result of believing what Jesus did for us through His death, burial, and resurrection we must decide if we will surrender to Him as Lord. The decision for Lordship is the primary way we protect ourselves from iniquity. If He is my Lord I choose to believe His Word. His truth is my absolute standard of integrity, love morality and for all my understanding of God. When I submit myself to God by aligning with His truth I have put myself in opposition to Satan and his deception. He will flee from me. “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:7-8).
Being unwavering about what you believe Jesus accomplished through His death, burial, and resurrection and the absoluteness of your commitment to Him as Lord is your foundation determining the degree to which you will experience the life and power of God. This is the foundation upon which all your other beliefs about God must stand.
