“Fear can lead us to view the possibilities of tomorrow without the promises of God, which are true yesterday, today and forever”.
(The idea for this post comes from a sermon delivered by Pastor Chris Voorhees of Naples Covenant Church, Naples, Florida. However, I am presenting a contemporary view on the outcome of the prophetic nature of these scriptures, as a remedy and as countermeasures for today in our world of chaos, war and disease.)
An example of this can be seen from the “Y2K” scare of the year 2000. The Y2K Scare was a phenomenon at the turn of the 21st century where computer users and programmers feared that computers would stop working on December 31, 1999. The phenomenon was also referred to as the “Millennium Bug” or “Year 2000 problem” by technology experts. A lot of planning went into preparing for the ‘Millennium Bug.’ In fact, the scare led governments and private organizations to spend millions of dollars in an attempt to avert the risk.
In the 1960s and 1970s, when computer engineers worked on complex computer programs, they used two-digit codes to represent the year. The first two digits were left out. For example, instead of coding “1960”, they just used “60”. The main reason for leaving out the first two digits was to save on storage space which was too costly. For instance, a kilobyte of storage went for as high as US$100. Additionally, the programmers did not expect the programs to last up to the turn of the century. When the new Millennium neared, computer experts realized that the software would recognize “00” as 1900 instead of the year 2000. This realization posed a risk to many institutions such as banks, insurance companies, hospitals, and government departments that relied on computers to provide accurate time and date.
As the calendar approached the year 2000, anxiety spread across the world as people feared that computer systems would shut down. Banking institutions which relied on software programs to calculate daily interest were at risk of system failure. As a result, stock prices of banking institutions dropped in value as the year 2000 neared. Transport systems were also affected especially in the airline business whose operations depend on accurate time and date. There were rumors that planes would drop from the sky when clocks turned to midnight on 31st Dec 1999. This led travelers to avoid the airport on New Year’s Eve. Hospitals, power plants, and government organizations were not spared from the threats either.
Due to the severe implication of a possible shut down, organizations went to great lengths to prevent the system failure from materializing. One way the year 2000 problem was handled was by creating new software programs that saved dates as four digits instead of the two digits previously used. The remedy was very expensive to implement. The other solution was to amend the algorithm used in calculating leap years so as to recognize the year 2000 as a leap year.
On the much-awaited date of January 1st, 2000, computer programs updated to the new dates and carried on as usual. Except for a few incidents of software failures, not much happened on the date as earlier anticipated.
Computer experts were later accused of exaggerating the concept of the “Millennium Bug” as millions of dollars were spent in preparation of the Y2K problem (WorldAtlas.com). And that was then end of it – or was it?
Let’s use a little reason and logic here, which something the computer experts are reportedly highly trained in, but apparently failed to employ. And I ask again, or did they?
What if this was just a ‘test run” in the use of unreasonable and unfounded fear to the purpose of manipulating masses of people, corporations, nations and governments for political reasons?
A second glaring example is the use of “Global Warming” scare of the late 1900’s and the early 2000’s.
You can watch this documentary video “The Great Global Warming Swindle” for detailed information on how the Globalists-Socialists have weaponized innocuous matters such as the weather and spread fear around the world for political reasons:
Then came Covid-19. This has been one of the most successful Globalist fear-inspired lockdowns in history, which is now a faint memory, but laced with unnecessary death and destruction with a cost exceeding 11 trillion dollars, and still growing.
The Covid-19 experiment proved that world populations and governments can be successfully manipulated with proper fear induced motivations.
Hence, the United Nations’ U.N.E.S.C.O, The World Economic Forum, Global Marxism, the American Democrat Party have carefully planned and executed a global coup de tat conspiracy using their Agenda-2030.
YOU HAVE TO READ IT TO BELIEVE IT
That is to say, you have to read the Agenda-2030 (and the predecessor document, Agenda-21) to believe the audacity and the temerity of it all. Which finally brings us to the point: “Fear can lead us to view the possibilities of tomorrow without the promises of God which were true yesterday, are true today and shall be forevermore.
“Fear can tempt us to try and create our own future rather than trust God’s future for us.”.
Taken from the Old Testament book of 2 Kings 19:1-20, Pastor Voorhees outlines four important truths and reveals the tactics of Satan, our eternal enemy and how to identity his evil influencers.
FEAR OF THE FUTURE WILL OFTEN INCLUDE LIES OF THE ENEMY
- The enemy will tear down your trust in God and tempt you to do it your own way by telling you ‘half-truths’ (which is just another word for lies), which puts our focus on your immanent and ultimate defeat rather than on the victory God has planned for you.
- The antagonizing voices of the enemy speak about things that are true, but does not tell the truth and is void of faith.
- The enemy will seem to offer terms of compromise and peaceful coexistence that look attractive, but replace the promise of God with counterfeits and lies resulting in a hellish prison of your body, soul and spirit.
Just like in the events in 2 Kings 18:30-32, where Rabshakeh offers Israel and Hezekiah security, hope, sustenance, stability, land and a future of safety and prosperity against the threat of fear, defeat and death, the Marxist-Globalists of our day (The U.N., U.N.E.S.C.O., The World Economic Forum, Agenda-2030 and the American Democrat Party) in part, are offering:
(From the Preamble of the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”)
“This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognize that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are announcing today demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda. They seek to build on the Millennium Development Goals and complete what these did not achieve. They seek to realize the human rights of all and to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.
The Goals and targets will stimulate action over the next fifteen years in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet.
“We are determined to protect the planet from degradation, including through sustainable consumption and production, sustainably managing its natural resources and taking urgent action on climate change, so that it can support the needs of the present and future generations.”
Who would not want to achieve these goals and live in such a Utopian world? Beware. The goals are lofty, but, the methodologies, the implementation and the governing of the world they describe can be likened to the gulags of Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin, the reign of terror imposed on China by the notorious Mao Zedong or the racist Hegelian, Karl Marx’s nefarious social construct of Marxism which is responsible for the deaths of upward of 200,000,000 people. They, all, used the same Siren’s song the United Nations is using now, to lure hundreds of millions into the webs of Agenda 2030.
It must be noted that these ‘noble sounding objectives’ will come at the loss of many personal freedoms and individual liberties, according to the the World Economic’s own statements. Additionally, the Commission on Global Governance boldly states, “This agenda will be foreign to and ignores ideas precious to the American experience”.
However, there is no reason to fear what they fear, and we are not to dread what they dread. We have overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by our testimony:
For in this way the LORD spoke to me with His strong hand [upon me and instructed me not to walk in the way of this people behaving as they do, saying,
“You are not to say, ‘It is a conspiracy!’
In regard to all that this people call a conspiracy,
And you are not to fear what they fear nor be in dread of it.
“It is the LORD of hosts whom you are to regard as holy and awesome.
He shall be your source of fear,
He shall be your source of, dread, not man.
“Then He shall be a sanctuary, a sacred, indestructible shelter for those who fear and trust Him. (Isaiah 8:11-14)
