Years ago when I was coming to a comprehension, through study and observation and (I believe) Spirit-led guidance . . . about the globalist agenda . . . the expected coming one-world Satanic government, etc., . . . and in general the "end times" . . . a possible scenario came to me. . . .
Okay, I'm going to get a bit "fringe" here--[note, I am not against "fringe" and "out-of-the-box" thinking", but just leery of merely TRENDY "fringe" thinking and the pursuit of conspiracies where it becomes an obsession above and beyond staying first and foremost focused on Jesus, the Gospel, the Word]. . . . But uh, yeah . . . so I "saw" a potential development where, as we entered the final phase of the dark one-world government . . . and as, simultaneously, the end of the "end times" drew near . . . we would perhaps enter into a sort of collective trance and/or state of shock. . . .
Either by INDUCEMENT into a trance state (via brain-frequency manipulation, chemicals, assorted mind control techniques etc.,) or a SPIRITUAL shift consciousness . . . or both . . . we would quite radically depart from the former "reality" into a kind of altered state, and that few would realize what had happened and was happening. . . .
I saw it as being so pervasive it would be the "water we swim in"--as in, a fish is not conscious it is "wet" as opposed to "dry" . . . because it's whole environment is "wet". . . .
Also, I saw it as being akin to what is purported to happen to animals (and even people) when they are violently attacked by a predator. The victim in such cases goes into a quick state of shock--a sort of trance--so that the violence and terror of what is happening almost seems like a dream, pain is not really felt as much as one would think, and many people in such cases that have survived report that it was like that attack was happening to someone else. Martyrs and sufferers of torture have reported this as well. There is a kind of defense mechanism God has mercifully provided in this violent world--what we know as "shock"--to mitigate pain and suffering in the moment of some horror. . . .
From study of the subject I strongly believe that, for one thing, those evil elite who are manipulating things on the civil/political/social stage . . . are deliberately inducing a state of shock in the populace, because such victims are easier to control and guide . . . and also, because the destruction/transformation of our general culture IS disturbing and painful enough on its own to induce a general state of shock . . . that we ARE in a pervasive trance condition of shock. . . . And I strongly suspect techno-biologic-chemical manipulation coinciding as well.
The thing is, "they" want to take us from "the old ways" to something "new" and masterminded, but if we had our wits about us, there would be fierce resistance. So, for the most part, our "wits" are gone and most are just moving along, semi-conscious into the "brave new world". . . .
"They" also have a strong incentive to ruin our memory capability, and what "they" are doing, and what is resulting from their various machinations . . . is that brain functioning, critical thinking, memory etc., are being severely attacked.
I suspect that this overarching situation is what is part of what is referred to in the Biblical warning: " . . . if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
This is why it is so absolutely critical . . . for the "elect" to be focused first and foremost on Jesus, His Word, the Gospel . . . and to be in some sort of fellowship or connection with other Believers. Without such an Anchor, I can so no way that a person in these times can keep any kinds of "wits" about themselves and stay spiritually cogent and connected to reality. "Reality" is being contorted, manipulated, guided, formed etc., and most people are just going along with it, including when they "think" they are "fighting" it and "resisting". It is the "water they swim in". . . . They can't discern that they are being utterly swept along. . . .
Stay Cogent, my friends! . . . .
