The God Matrix
Pastors were some of the leaders of the Revolutionary War who motivated people to fight for liberty. The Bible is a history of oppression and tyranny by governments and how peoples overcame it. Invention of the printing press allowed people to read the Bible for themselves and led to the Protestant Reformation, the Renaissance, the 18th Century Enlightenment, and freedom from counterfeit, FAKE, tyrannical Christianity. It led to Western Civilization.
Lack of real knowledge of the Bible, not misguided teachings so prevalent in today's churches, has brought us to the tyranny we now suffer.
There is a matrix of technocratic evil: TVs and cell phones, wifi and cable networks and satellites through which government agencies (and the devil’s agents) can spy on us, cameras that follow our every move, social media ghetto platforms that monopolize our time and divert our energies, etc. This tends to make us paranoid and too often paralyzed from taking direct action.
But there is also a God Matrix in which we all dwell, whether or not we recognize it. I believe God knows and is aware of EVERYTHING: our every thought, feeling, the state of every cell of all plants and animals, every blade of grass, every drop of water in the oceans...all the world and all the Universe is “Godness”, God “Media”, “God Space”.
An analogy would be fish swimming in the ocean, and the ocean is God.
Only those who understand this and acknowledge God's existence may receive God's peace and power to overcome fear. "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." 1 John 4:18
It is our lack of faith that keeps us in a state of fear. That fear prevents us from following the prescription of our founding fathers and mothers. They knew their Bibles. We’ve forgotten how to get and stay ANGRY. Thus, we fail to go out in the streets persistently, expressing OUTRAGE on a continuing basis. It’s a sin to be angry without cause. We have CAUSE.
The number of demonstrations to date has been a drop in the bucket of what it will take to make our DEMANDS heard and to make public officials TAKE HEED that we’re not going to take the tyranny anymore. We have yet to follow the blueprint for liberty laid down for us in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. The First Amendment is First for good reason. So far, we’ve only stuck our foot in the water. We’ve yet to take the plunge and dive into the ocean and SWIM, in FAITH, and EXERCISE our First Amendment rights.
MT 17:14 “And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, 15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatic, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. 18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”
We all need to pray and fast more, myself included, and seek God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength.
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Hebrews 11:6
