Tearing Down the Altars of Q/Qanon
Many have questioned if not publicly, silently --- my recent stand against Q, Qanon, & WWG1WGA etc.
I present this post to zero in & clarify as needed. As I have stated a few times before in different MeWe Groups, several long standing friend contacts here have deleted me & or blocked me because of posting against the fractional news of Qanon. I am truly sorry for losing these friends & at the same time very concerned for all my christian sisters & brothers in the body of Christ & here in MeWe ONLY because it has caused such divisions between christian sisters & brothers & even in families. And it shows the deceptive cult mentality that blooms within Q/Qanon & exploits & deceives its readers because of the ‘spirit it is conceived in’.
So I perceive it is a good time to share my personal transition coming out of the proverbial Q/Qanon & my prayerful reasonings to further try to reach out to other sisters & brothers in the spirit of love & in hope of preventing any one else's proverbial ‘fall down the rabbit hole’ syndrome.
First, let’s look at what the bible contributes to this general discussion on such conspiracy news & disinformation & news, like that which is flooding our news medias & social networks; from the far right to the far left & everything in-between. We should all know that our key obligation as christians is to present the Great Commission which is our main privilege in Christ & His New Covenant ~ above & beyond ~ everything else & then also knowing we should not be ignorant of the times we are living in AND then also to know that this not unto condemnation, but to present a powerful discernment:
... “Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Here is the main verse that was shown to me that I did not even consider before:
Isaiah 8:12-13 ... “Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. But YHWH of hosts, Him you shall honor as holy. Let Him be your fear.”
And then would like to add these verses to follow in support:
1 Timothy 4:1-2... “Now the Spirit speaks distinctly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.”
Colossians 2:8 ... “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.”
Isaiah 66:4 ... “I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.”
Proverbs 27:17 ...“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."
With that being presented, I would like to relate to you what happened to me concerning my stand against Qanon & my dramatic change of belief & attitude toward it.
When my eyes were opened to the truth of the evil spirits behind Qanon, it shook me to my core & was a total shock, but it was an instant revelation in spiritual truth that I could not turn away from. Plus, you need to know also that I have followed many such news links, independent & alternative, far right & far left for well over 15+ years! Have also known there is always a thread of truth in much that we read, but usually to get the full story on anything it takes checking out several news sites & several articles concerning the same thing & in doing such, discernment is always needed to sift through the plethora of writers & news articles. AND, I only present my ‘change’ here to lovingly distill a portion for those interested. If it saves one person, it may reach out to help save many. #ts1tsm
Let me add here please, the main reason of purpose in reading so much news is because my hubby & I publish a ‘faith themed magazine’ AWFSM (https://awfsm.neocities.org), for over 15+ years; so right wing & left wing news is nothing new to me. Also, please know that I have not been blind to the major truths that there is much to question in our nation(s) & its leaders & knowing there is much evil in all governments & the decisions being made in real time that are effecting us all globally. But even with all that being said, when the Holy Spirit opened my eyes suddenly, to actually see the ‘evil principalities & powers’ behind the Qanon & its news channels, I could not deny the truth.
And, yes I saw them in the spirit realm, as my eyes were opened to literally see the evil spirits & understand what I was seeing.
The extreme fact is that the evil principalities ‘spirit of jezebel & the spirit of witchcraft & sedition’ are manipulating behind the scenes of Q/Qanon etc ... Each bearing force on the projection & promotion of these news merchants of unmitigated fear. It has become a domestic cultish agent of chaos, spreading a fear mongering platform that is so convoluted & controlling that any general sense of truth becomes lost in the mire of its sheer evil entrapments. It literally promotes a blind cultish deceptions in a news entertainment platform that is full of evil thoughts & intentions; making no qualms in using pornographic & morally suggestive materials to support their vile statements & headlines.
Without going into a lot of the history of Qanon, I would instead like to present its cause & effect. Qanon was conceived in 2017 & has exploded amid the Covid 19 surgence. Our button down new normal world that has been shuttered in place has made more people became openly receptive to the gospel of “Q” & its generated paranoias. From “4Chan” to the “Awoke” & “Great Awakening”, & to the “Deep State” impact --- such news seems engulfed in a toxic cloud of evil cyberspace info. Mainly because it provides a sense of control in a time of senseless out of control times.
Truthfully, Q/Qanon is not just a political movement, because it also functions for people that believe in it, as both a social community & a source of social control & entertainment. It becomes a shared reality in shifting story lines & a curious puzzle solving narrative adventure to follow up on everyday to decode & stimulate a sense of knowingness & power. All the popular social media platforms have some form of “Q” & “Qanon”groups that amplify their message & through coded algorithms exploit their message from platform to platform.
Now, we hear that such media platforms are starting to ban “Q/Qanon etc ... ” & its followers which has only stoked its popularity. Because of the implode of re-cycling conspiracy theories & exploitive shifting beliefs, Q/Qanon has flourished more than ever before in 2020 going into 2021. Many people, christian & non christian are looking for a ‘political control handle’ that they can grab onto because of the tumultuous days are all experiencing. Q/Qanon seems to have fit that need perfectly in our day & age & for the new generations that have not been born in more hopeful times.
We know it takes strong belief & moral integrity to overcome any political & religious corruption. The only thing that can match political corruption is religious corruption & there too we are seeing so much decay right in front of our eyes.
Not only does our nation’s capital need to ‘drain the swamp’, it is needed in the church world as well. And we can all be subject to it at one time or another, because of its slivers of truth that the enemy uses to instill his dark game plan.
We know that people listen to what they 'want' to hear. I will repeat that … people listen to what they 'want' to hear. If the source of anything we believe is tainted, it will taint the whole eventually & keep expanding. We can liken this to the ‘leaven’ spoken of in the bible. So from tainted hearts spreads tainted words & tainted news, tainted faith, tainted beliefs; effecting the spirit & soul, mind of those partaking of it. Many things may start our right, but end up wrong because it becomes polluted & abused in itself & hence we have the now outcome of Q/Qanon. And, Satan loves this!
Political & religious corruption blocks biblical truth & leads people into deception & spiritual darkness, & sin. We cannot survive as an inclusive church (speaking as a community church or as we each stand as a representative of Christ as His church). Inclusive religion & inclusive politics & inclusive news is a deadly mixture & it can lead to reprobate minds & apostasy.
Such is the darkness that permeate Q/Qanon whether seen or unseen, known or unknown.
WE know that as a believer in Christ & ministers in Christ we are to separate the holy from the profane, but we are not hearing or seeing that nowadays very much.
Every believer in Christ as a minister in Christ proclaiming His Word, needs to remember that God gave us a rod & staff. With the staff, we lead & with the rod we beat off the wolves. But we have to recognize & see the wolves first!
Can you see the great division(s) taking place all over --- in our christian fellowship, in our homes, & churches, & in our politics, & governments, all over the USA? Which in turn seems to confirm scripture ... “Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom” (Luke 21:10).
So the only thing next to happen will be the Holy Spirit separating the goats from the sheep & in so doing, everything that can be shaken will be shaken. AND we are all feeling that NOW.
Let us continue to pray for Godly discernment & to be able to discern the enemy no matter how good & right he may appear to be. He has been at this game far longer than you & I. Lord have mercy upon us all! And, not that we need fear these deceptions either, but we are to be "wise as serpents & harmless as doves"; because we are "sent out like sheep among the wolves." Matthew 10:16 ... so the decision is up to you & me ... who we will follow & give our attention to.
Leaving this with a plea to everyone who reads this article. It’s a biblical truth, God will not be mocked & whatsoever we sow that shall we also reap. Sow to the flesh, & of the flesh, we do reap. All very plain & clear & I pray you sense the truth & prayerfully any conviction from the Lord, you will likewise recognize. But if we are not discerning between the spirit & flesh, then the mire clay is what we will walk in & our footprints will become soiled & muddy too, leaving a defiled trail of mire worldly traces. Such is the quagmire of Q/Qanon, that I pray the Lord may save or keep you from.
NOTE: we see many in this day & age claiming to be christians falling apart, or seeking political justice over GOD. This is also a problem of denomination & doctrine! There are many who believe in Dominion Theology / 7 Mountain Mandate, of which I never heard of till recently. Such believe that they will be co-redeemers of humanity & their works will usher in JESUS CHRIST to set up his New Kingdom. But only if they can reach a certain level of acceptable humanity first. This is unscriptural & full of the enemies lies once again in trying to mimic the KINGDOM OF GOD. We need to know that Dominion Theology is a giant mixture of New Age & Eastern Religion that is being promoted & touted about in denominational churches, some knowingly & some unknowingly. Again, may our LORD provide HIS GIFT OF DISCERNING OF SPIRITS to the BODY OF CHRIST to prevent & expose such seductive deceptions from Satan & his demonic realm; which is reaching into & using the Q/Qanon circus in political popularity & control!
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
