The Matrix Was Not a Movie, It Was a Prediction-When Everything We Believe Is a Lie
Several years after the making and release of the movie, The Matrix, many have come to realize that this movie was not just entertainment, it was a prediction, a very accurate prediction. The movie illustrated the overriding principle of truth, or more accurately, the lack of truth: Most of what people believe is a lie designed to manipulate them into perpetual state of servitude to Satan.
Is everything we believe a lie designed to cause us to forfeit our promise of eternal life? The answer may surprise you.
How Many People Can Be Fooled?
On September 2, 1858, speaking in Clinton, Illinois, during the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates, Abraham Lincoln made one of his most famous statements: “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
If we eliminate the redemptive power of Christ to open our eyes to the truth, I would disagree with Lincoln. Satan is busy deceiving everybody, everyday and at this moment, he is winning. However, Lincoln's quote becomes very accurate when people embrace Jesus.
The Most Truthful Statement Ever Made by the CIA
The business of the CIA is covert deception. However, even the midst of a culture based upon lying, morsels of truth sometimes come forth. Former CIa Director William Casey once made the following truthful statement:
"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false"
At last, some real honesty from the CIA. Today the CIA is involved in with a $600 million dollar deal with the CIA. They are deeply embedded into CNN and the other mainstream media. The result is a totally deceived public. The deception will worsen until Christ returns.
The Bible's View of Deception
With regard to the truth, what does the Bible say about this process?
From 2 Thessalonians 2
Our Lord Jesus Christ is coming again. We will be gathered together to meet Him. But we ask you, Christian brothers, 2 do not be troubled in mind or worried by the talk you hear. Some say that the Lord has already come. People may say that I wrote this in a letter or that a spirit told them. 3 Do not let anyone fool you. For the Lord will not come again until many people turn away from God. Then the leader of those who break the law will come. He is the man of sin. 4 He works against and puts himself above every kind of god that is worshiped. He will take his seat in the house of God and say that he himself is God. 5 Do you not remember that while I was with you, I told you this? 6 You know the power that is keeping the man of sin back now. The man of sin will come only when his time is ready. 7 For the secret power of breaking the law is already at work in the world. But that secret power can only do so much until the One Who keeps back the man of sin is taken out of the way. 8 Then this man of sin will come. The Lord Jesus will kill him with the breath of His mouth. The coming of Christ will put an end to him. 9 Satan will use this man of sin. He will have Satan’s power. He will do strange things and many powerful works that will be false. 10 Those who are lost in sin will be fooled by the things he can do. They are lost in sin because they did not love the truth that would save them. 11 For this reason, God will allow them to follow false teaching so they will believe a lie. 12 They will all be guilty as they stand before God because they wanted to do what was wrong.
Once in a while, I need a reminder on why we fight against the forces of darkness whose main weapon consists of preying upon our ignorance. My people perish because of a lack of knowledge is indeed an accurate statement.
Total deception will be upon us with the advent and appearance of the Antichrist. If it were not for the Second Coming of Jesus, mankind would be eliminated because their lack of faith and how truly easy to believe in the lie that we can accurately call the matrix.There is only one way to the truth and that is through believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Everything else is a lie, a lie that will result in your eternal damnation. Do you mean that pedophillia is not really normal?
One final question: Does the extreme leftist-inspired social media censorship now take on a different level of importance when considered in this context?
