Conspiracy Theories

2 Peter 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous [are they], selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

Jude 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

Let none feel it his duty to make speeches in the presence of our own people, or of our enemies, that will arouse their combativeness and they take your words and construe them in such a way that you are charged with being rebellious to the government, for this will close the door of access to the people. {1888 480.1}

When they understand fully the meaning of the prayer recorded in the seventeenth chapter of John, they will be so closely united with Christ that there will be no place in their minds for the speculative theories that spring out of nothingness and end in nothingness. {GH, March 1, 1904 par. 17}

Don’t worry about conspiracy theories, we don’t need them. It tells you man is doing it. Whatever he is doing, he is wearing out the garment on this planet. Those of the last generation, if they are watching and listening to nature, they will behold the threadbare garment of earth. They will behold it’s in their lifetime, they will see it. We see the threadbare condition of that which God originally made beautiful. Slowly but surely the earth has become threadbare as a garment becomes worn. https://sabbathsermons.com/2012/02/02/06-god-speaks/

We are living in a time today of mind occupation of many Adventists where they are conspiracy theorists who make conspiracy theories their study. What we will study won’t even touch these and we will know much more than them. What Jesus has pointed out to us in His beautiful description in the last days is that you won’t have to listen to the conspiracy theories. They are mere theories, some are notions and others may have some merit. All you need to know is the sharp realities of what Jesus says. If we uphold the beauty of God’s word, we will be able to hide under the radar of those who persecute us. We are going to see details that are far more thrilling than conspiracy theories but people seem to be charged up with those things. Don’t be deceived. We have something far more valuable in the words of Jesus. https://sabbathsermons.com/2012/01/25/02-all-these-things-fulfilled/

You can get so easily into the fall of Babylon and we are to call them out of Babylon. Look at Babylon, that is the Catholic and protestant churches and they are all bad, bad, bad. We are not to do that. We are not to give the impression that we are tearing down the churches. We are to avoid that and let the people discover we are handing out to them vital godliness and in sharing that they will come out of Babylon,. That is how you call them out, with vital godliness not the conspiracy theories. https://sabbathsermons.com/2011/10/07/03-methods-to-find-interested-souls/

…the message of the third angel will be proclaimed. As the time comes for it to be given with greatest power, the Lord will work through humble instruments, leading the minds of those who consecrate themselves to His service. The laborers will be qualified rather by the unction of His Spirit than by the training of literary institutions. Men of faith and prayer will be constrained to go forth with holy zeal, declaring the words which God gives them. The sins of Babylon will be laid open. The fearful results of enforcing the observances of the church by civil authority, the inroads of spiritualism, the stealthy but rapid progress of the papal power–all will be unmasked. {GC 606.2}

Follow carefully that the manner of unmasking this that we see today among many of the independents today. They are doing it not in the manner in which this company will do it. The companies that are doing it in general today are doing it with the same overtones of pride. They go into all the details of unmasking the papacy through all these conspiracy theories. Have you been in danger of picking them up? This is not Gods way. We are told in the Spirit of Prophecy under the tuition of Jesus Christ that we are not to do what they are doing. We have the word and the word is all we need. How is it done?

By these solemn warnings the people will be stirred. Thousands upon thousands will listen who have never heard words like these. In amazement they hear the testimony that Babylon is the church, fallen because of her errors and sins, because of her rejection of the truth sent to her from heaven. {GC 606.2}

It is by a people who have learnt in the school of Christ. By a people who have not been qualified by the training of literary institutions. As we conduct this seminar we are seeking a training and understanding skill based on the school of Christ.

Are you learning daily in the school of Christ–learning how to dismiss doubt and evil surmisings, learning how to be fair and noble in your dealings with your brethren, for your own sake and for Christ’s sake? {CH 355.3}

Conspiracy theories are actually evil surmising. Do you believe that? There is maybe some truth but the rest of it is constructed by evil surmising and we have nothing to do with that. May God grant us that this meditation will abide with us throughout this seminar and find a ready answer to willingly co-operate with our Lord and let him qualify us for his work. https://sabbathsermons.com/2011/07/20/02-in-the-school-of-christ/

Do you like studying prophecy? So does the natural man. It is wonderful to understand the prophecies and the political arena and as we do we say yes the papacy is bad and the politics and the natural heart picks up all the conspiracy theories that the Bible doesn’t identify and makes a big doctrine out of it. I have been sent two books called ‘Bar-bel-lon’ and they go into all the situations behind the scenes and I’ve not opened that book to read it. I’ve scanned it but I won’t turn away my attention from the Lord. It is attractive and we develop the natural man that becomes a zealot that begins to attack the papacy when the spirit of God says don’t attack them. https://sabbathsermons.com/2011/06/01/the-natural-heart-and-god/
