Who said Conspiracy is a Theory? By: Rick Godley Rick@ godleyworks.com
Ever play a word association game? That’s where one person says a word, and you say the word of the first thing that comes to your mind, revealing thought patterns, stuff that we’ve been programmed to say. I say Dog; you may say Cat. I say Lord, and you may say Jesus. Or I say candy, and you may say Snickers.
What if I say conspiracy? Would you immediately say theory? A lot would. I wonder why. Is it because we have heard those two words used together so many times that we start to believe that all conspiracies are theories? And if you believe in conspiracy’s, you are labeled a kook or fanatic making it seem as if you believe in something that isn’t real.
What does the Word of God say about conspiracies? Have you ever stopped to think about it? First of all, I looked in the dictionary to see if the word theory was the word that followed conspiracy, and it doesn’t. Conspire means to breath the same air, as inspire means to inhale, aspire to breathe upon, expire you take your last breathe, and perspire to breathe through. The root word “spire” is where we get Spirit.
Psalm 2 is an ominous Psalm. In it you’ll find references to the United Nations, the ACLU, prophetic warnings about the coming judgment, John 3:16, and the anger of Jesus just to name a few. There is so much packed in just 12 verses!
In Psalm 2, we are introduced to the reality of conspiracy. In verse 2, depending upon what mistranslation you use, you see something like, “the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against His Messiah saying…” They are conspiring! The enemies of the Messiah are breathing the same air! Sound familiar?
Matt 12:14 says, “But the Pharisees went out and conspired against Him (The Messiah), as to how they might destroy Him. Since a student is not above His teacher, we can see how the disciples went through the process. Look up Acts 9:1. A funny way to say it is, “Now Saul, still breathing threats and murders against the disciples of Messiah…” I find it interesting that it says “breathing”.
What happened to Saul when He found out that his religion was misguided and that The Scriptures is Truth in its Pure and Simple Way? He repented of his religious zeal and followed Torah in its purest Way, the Way His Messiah showed Him personally.
Notice the seed we sow is the seed we reap. Saul breathed out threats and murders, and they were breathed back on him in Acts 20:3. “And he spent 3 months when a plot was formed against him.”
So we see The Messiah always had a conspiracy against Him. His disciples did as well. And even the “Cliff Note commentator on the Torah” himself, Saul/Paul, did too.
How about you?
Take a stand for Truth (in the way Scriptures defines Truth), and watch the conspiracy develop around you. When this happens, know that you are in good company. It seems to me that Joseph had a group of brothers that breathed the same air as well and conspired against him. Yet, Yah meant it for good!
I have plenty more verses, and I welcome the ones you find. Please, e-mail me what you find as we share. Because in this day and age, a lot of things don’t seem to add up, and when you present Truth, you are smeared, slandered, talked about, (but never to your face) and labeled. That kind of sheds light on the count it all joy verses when you fall into manifold trials etc. It does also the “hey, watch you talking bout Willard verses”, of Matt 5:11.
Here’s just a smattering of the conspiracy verses found in Scripture. If they are in the Book of Truth, can they be a Theory? I don’t think so.
Ps. 26:20, 31:20, 37:12 105:25, all of Psalm 64, 74:8, 41:7, 2 Chron. 24:21, Ezek. 22:25, Matt. 22:15
So as you aspire to inspire until you expire, continue to perspire, and let them conspire because you stand for the Truth! Conspiracy is no theory; it’s a fact. Remember, Truth is Hate to those who hate the Truth.
