in response to reader comment: I'm flattered that I convinced you but I'm not sure that you understood what I wrote

Hi, Dhimminomore

We're all here to convince one another; otherwise this would be a waste of time. I had been looking at this "Deep State" stuff, as so many personal motivations, connected in spirit only. By mentioning the Qataris, you reminded me that conspiratorial actors, such as governments, are very active in orchestrating these motivations.

The Bible looks at both:

Spirits are not Hollywood objects, that you can fight with modified ion-laser vacuum cleaners. They are more like memory chips, implanted in the brain via images, sounds, chemicals (to the brain, it all comes down to chemicals and charge transfers) etc. Entire populations can pick up on the same spirit, as when all Germany listened to and internalized Hitler's speeches.

In the present madness, about half the country is caught up in a spiritual craziness that leads them to lie, hate, break windows and, yes, conspire. Most of the other half of the country might well be caught up in a "counter-spirit", thinking of fellow himans in less-than-generous terms, calling them "snowflakes", "idiots", "freeloaders" and, as I have just done, "crazies". None of this is true, of course; -- these are all rational human beings; some of them being our own children. Given the right chemical, emotional triggers, though, our ACTIONS and SPEECH are not driven by reason.

This is why I say so confidently, that in a few years, the whole world will attack Israel, just as it is described in Zechariah 14. The NT book of Revelation speaks of two grotesque creatures, connected with this attack: One is the seven-headed, ten-horned "Beast that comes out of the Sea", representing the great world powers throughout history (of which the US-led current world order is the last); and the other is a seven-headed, ten-horned "Devil" or "Dragon", which gives "power" to the first beast. In computer terms, this "power" can be thought of as a "driver" program that activates the not-so-random mish-mash of spirits in the minds of men.

Coming soon, in United Nations near you...
