Americans are facing increasing calls and mounting pressure to confront the New World Order, Great Reset, and unfolding collapse of America. The chorus of “fight, fight, fight” is reverberating across the country, especially in the wake of the election. But is this the proper (biblical) response? Or, is it a great deception shrouded in gaslighting? Let’s examine four reasons the Bible teaches the latter!
For those unfamiliar with the term gaslighting, it refers to a form of psychological manipulation in which a person or a group covertly sows seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or group, making them question their own memory, perception, or judgment.
This is precisely what we are seeing in conservative circles regarding the purported nature of Christianity.
Whether its predicated on false dominion theology, the NAR (new apostolic reformation) movement, Christian reconstruction, or the ever-popular ecumenical 7-mountain mandate, this “fight, fight, fight!” theology is re-surfacing everywhere—including being leveraged by pseudo-Christian occult movements, such as all things Q and gnostic.
Broadly speaking, the mantra argues that we must fight the forces of evil to win back this world and establish a righteous physical kingdom on earth.
In other words, we must “Make America (or the World) Great Again” by any and all means necessary.
Glenn Beck provides a perfect example of this. In just the past few days, he has released a video from The Glenn Beck Podcast entitled “Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It’s Not Time to Unify, It’s Time to FIGHT” and a video from a segment on The Glenn Beck Radio Program entitled “Do you have the GUTS to fight for freedom?”
Be careful! The great deception—which will become the great delusion—has begun.
I think it’s fair to say that we are all frustrated and disappointed with the condition and trajectory of our country, as well as the New World Order agenda (viz., the Great Reset) that is emerging before our collective eyes.
To learn more about this demonic global transformation, I highly encourage you to read our articles WEF Great Reset—A Glimpse into the New World Order Psyche and New World Order Emerging: Not Such a Crazy Conspiracy Theory After All!
However, this transformation (a deterioration, corruption, debasement, degradation and devolution) is not an economic, environmental or political problem, nor can it be solved or overcome by physical means.
While these voices (many of whom are well-intentioned) understand the “what” of this transformation, they are woefully blind to the “why” behind it all. And that ignorance results in an errant understanding of its nature.
It is, at its heart, a sin problem—one located in the heart and which can only be resolved on an individual basis by a spiritual solution.
Paul makes the spiritual nature of this battle evident to all when he writes:
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).
So, given the seriousness of the situation and intensity of the calls… what are we to believe and do?
Let’s explore the biblical response to the New World Order agenda and the decline of the American empire.
Specifically, I’m going to share four unambiguous reasons why the Bible does NOT support fighting to save our physical world and lifestyle from the evil forces working to transform it…
#1 Jesus Declared His Present Kingdom is NOT an Earthly One—It’s Spiritual
To kick things off, let’s go straight to THE Source of Truth—the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ. Did Jesus preach an earthly kingdom in this age—one that His followers should fight for?
Christ directly answered this question when He was brought before Pilate and declared:
My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.” (John 18:36)
I don’t think it can get any clearer than that.
Jesus establishes two critical truths regarding this current age: (1) His Kingdom is not a worldly (physical) kingdom and, because it is not of this world, (2) His servants should not (and cannot) physically fight to establish or expand it.
If it was an earthly kingdom, then Christ says we would (and should) fight… but it’s NOT.
Remember, when He was betrayed by Judas and arrested in Gethsemane, the disciples attempted to fight back—Simon Peter even struck Malchus (a servant of the High Priest) with his sword, severing his ear (John 18:10).
What was Christ’s response?
He ordered them to stop fighting and sheath their swords… and even healed the ear of Malchus.
There is a time coming when the King of Kings will return to establish His earthly kingdom… but that is not now.
You can, if you desire, fight a physical battle against the New World Order agenda and the powers that be. You can participate in some great humanistic crusade to make America (or the world) great again. However, understand, you are not fighting for or with Christ—you are fighting for yourself and on your own.
You are foolishly fighting for a physical, worldly kingdom—not the spiritual kingdom of heaven. And, you are falling prey to the great deception of the ruler of the present physical world—Satan himself.
#2 Apostle Paul Revealed that Our Citizenship is in Heaven… Not America or this World
Second, we find that the Apostle Paul revealed that the citizenship of true believers is in heaven… not America or this world.
Paul warns us to beware of those who put their faith in physical things—in the law, in their “good” life, in their jobs, in their degrees, in their politicians, in their experts, and in the physical world as a whole:
For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh” (Philippians 3:3).
All of these physical, worldly things, Paul says, are the antithesis of faith in Christ: “But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ” (Philippians 3:7).
To the contrary, Paul declares:
Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death” (Philippians 3:8-10).
Furthermore, he encourages us to follow His example rather than those walking according to the world, writing:
Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things.” (Philippians 3:17-19).
Because, in this age, the kingdom of Christ is a spiritual kingdom—seated in heaven—and that is where our citizenship lies when we are born again through faith in Christ: “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20).
We are ambassadors to this world—not citizens of it!
An ambassador is an official envoy, who represent the policies and interests of their home country, state, government and/or ruler(s).
Therefore, as ambassadors of Christ, we should be representing the policies (doctrines and truth) and interests (will) of Christ and His spiritual kingdom in heaven—where our eternal and irrevocable citizenship lies.
It is not our duty to represent (or fight for) the policies and interests of ourselves or our host country!
Those who are focused on this world, who love their physical life and are fighting to make it great again, will be utterly disappointed because the end of this world is destruction—not greatness.
Christ doesn’t need us to fight for this world—”He is able even to subdue all things to Himself” (Philippians 3:21).
He alone will fix the world, end the curse, and “make it great again” when He returns to establish His earthly kingdom.
Until then, our mission is to share the gospel, to bear witness to Him, and to point folks to His current kingdom—a spiritual kingdom in heaven.
But God… made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:4-6).
Rest assured, a glorious physical kingdom is coming, but it is not here now… and, when it comes, it will be established by Jesus Christ alone—not by the hands (fighting or otherwise) of man.
#3 Lot’s Escape from Sodom Reveals the Danger of Loving Our Lives & this World
Third, Lot’s escape from the wicked city of Sodom reveals the danger of loving and clinging to our lives in this world. Stated differently, we should be seeking Christ—not fighting to maintain our quality of life or striving to make this world great again.
When the angels of the Lord arrive at Sodom to rescue Lot, we immediately see his focus on his life there. He was willing to sacrifice his own daughters to appease the mob, to not rock the boat, and to avoid disturbing his “quality of life.”
Lot had become preoccupied with the physical rather than the spiritual, and that had caused him to degrade into a mindset of “the ends justify the means” and “relativism” (situational rather than absolute truth).
Notice that, when he “warned” his sons-in-law to get out of the city, not only did they think he was joking but Lot himself didn’t even flee… he went home to enjoy his evening.
He was still focused on “living the dream”—the only difference between then and now is that it was the Sodom Dream rather than the American Dream.
When the angles again and in no uncertain terms tell him to flee the next morning, Lot just continues to “linger.” He was clinging to his worldly life and clearly struggling to let go of it.
I can almost hear poor Lot wrestling with the dilemma in his head…
“Is my city really that wicked?”
“I mean I know it’s not all that it can be, I know it’s deteriorated into some sin, but, hey, it can be great again!”
“I know this isn’t a spiritually healthy town, but it has a great economy that has provided me with a good life… can’t I just keep what I have and co-exist?”
“Sodom may be in recent decline… but it will ultimately progress towards perfection, right? I can help fight to make social and political changes that will fix the problem!”
In the end, the angels had to physically escort Lot and his family out of the city. He would not have left of his own accord—he loved his life there too much. He would have clung to it until he perished just like all the other citizens.
Then, the angels tell Lot and his family to run and not look back. But his wife looked back.
Why? Because she loved her city, she loved her friends, she loved her life there, and she longed for it… she just couldn’t let go of it and it cost her life.
To put it in Paul terms, she was focused on the worldly “loss” and not the Godly “gain”… she was focused on the physical and not the spiritual.
Christ warned us about this:
For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:25-26)
Again, you can fight for your physical way of life… but, in the end, it will not lead you to the American “promise land” or, more importantly, to eternal life.
Not only is Lot’s escape a powerful type of the Rapture, but it is a perfect type of America today.
We find ourselves living in an unimaginably wicked country (a modern-day Sodom); however, many love their lives of comfort and worldly pleasures despite that wickedness. They just want the good times back (a return to “normal”) and they are willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen—trusting whoever and whatever promises to restore it and even fighting for it if necessary.
However, the “good times” will never be restored. America will never be great again. That is simply not where God tells us the world is going.
Why? Because it is a sin issue. It is the culmination of a rejection of God and Christ’s spiritual kingdom.
As ambassadors of Christ, our mission is a spiritual one—to point folks back to God, His absolute truth, and the gospel of salvation that is Christ crucified.
The solution is spiritual (not physical) because we have a spiritual problem—one that cannot be solved through politics, science, medicine, education, technology, or force of will.
Again, you can “fight, fight, fight” but the Bible is clear that you—and your world—will perish regardless.
#4 The Great Deception that Will Become a Great Delusion
Finally, we find that the Apostle Paul also makes it clear that the last days will be filled with deception, which will reach its peak with the appearance of the Antichrist:
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)
This demonic deception has been in play since the beginning—”the mystery of lawlessness is already at work” (2 Thessalonians 2:7); however, it is exploding in scope and intensity as we near the start of the seven-year tribulation period and the revealing of the Antichrist.
Who will be deceived?
Those who have not received the love of the truth, which is the gospel—the spiritual solution to our sin problem.
Instead, they will fall for the deception, they will buy into the ecumenical religion of wokeness, they will place their trust in themselves and man—that we can be our own gods, take things into our own hands, control our collective outcome, and save ourselves (i.e., the “normal” lives we cling to and seek to restore)… by whatever earthly means necessary, up to and including force.
As a result, God will send a great delusion upon them (akin to hardening their hearts)—one that will cause them to believe the lie of Satan.
Again, those who are battling (a.k.a. fight, fight, fight!) over this world—both on the Left and the Right—are equally missing the point. They are just two wings of the same wicked bird—the same demonic deception.
The world is going to perish, along with those—Left and Right—who cling to it and idolize it. The ship is sinking folks, and it will go down with all those onboard… no different than the days of Noah or Lot in Sodom.
You can fight for this patch of dirt all you want. As for me and my house, we will serve Christ as spiritual ambassadors—sharing the gospel and pointing folks to the only solution by which they can avoid perishing… Jesus Christ.
Again, those who seek to focus on their physical lives and this world will lose their souls (eternal life) in the process. It is a fool’s errand—akin to showing up to a gun fight with a butter knife.
So, what does it all mean?
The world is perishing. It is not going to get better or become great again. Rather, it is going to become progressively worse. The ship is sinking… and it is going to go down with all hands.
Forget about making America great again… America’s fate was sealed a long time ago. To learn more, we recommend reading our article Mystery Babylon—God’s Judgment on America Forthcoming?
At Wicked Prepping, we seek to provide a biblical and prophetic perspective regarding world events—not so you can fight to save the world but, rather, so you and your family are physically and spiritually prepared to overcome the threats at the individual and family-unit level despite the intentions of the enemy.
We are watchmen (and woman) for the Lord… manning the walls, sounding the alarm, explaining the threats, and pointing you to the only true solution—Jesus Christ.
We do not seek to change, fix, or save the world… we merely seek to occupy it as ambassadors for Christ until He calls us home.
[Understand, that in no way rules out the use of defensive force! We absolutely have a biblical right to defend ourselves.]
You can cling to this world and your life, you can fight to make your world great again, and you can buy the lie and succumb to the great deception… or, you can listen to God’s Word and understand His Truth and our role in His spiritual kingdom.
Thankfully, if you’ve trusted in Christ, you (like Noah) will escape the coming apocalypse. In fact, He will even drag you kicking and screaming into the Rapture if He has too—just as He did with Lot.
However, if you haven’t placed your faith in Christ, you need to do that immediately!
You need to get on the Ark or, as many of us refer to it, Titus213 Airways Flight #777.
The doors to the Ark (or heavenly plane if you prefer) are about to be sealed shut by God. Do not hesitate or decide to procrastinate and linger just a little bit longer in the “world”—time is running out!
Destruction is coming and the only way to “escape” God’s wrath and avoid perishing is to be on the Ark that is Jesus Christ.
I urge you to read our article Are You Prepping to Survive or to Escape the Coming Fiery Furnace?
Now, there are those, who have been deceived, that criticize, mock and demean (a.k.a. gaslight) folks for having the audacity to want to escape rather than fight.
To which I respond, “Guilty as charged!”
Yes! Here I am Lord! Count me in for the Blessed Hope! I absolutely want to escape the coming destruction!
Gaslight me all you want! I will stand on the absolute truth of Scripture and take to heart what the angel of God told Lot:
Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed” (Genesis 19:17).
Make no mistake. If God said fight to make America great again… believe you me, I would fight in a second.
However, He has not said that.
To the contrary, John writes:
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” (1 John 2:15-17)
Let go and don’t look back my friend! Focus on Christ and the expansion of His spiritual kingdom through sharing His gospel!
By the way, when Christ does return to establish His earthly (physical) kingdom at the end of the seven-year tribulation period, we will be with Him… but He alone will fight the battle, drain the proverbial swamp, and destroy the enemy! (read Revelation 19:11-21)
When the time comes in accordance with God’s perfect will, rest assured, Jesus won’t need our help to fight!
Now, once you have your ticket to escape (salvation), then it’s time to prep in order to put your family in the best possible position to serve as spiritual ambassadors until God calls us home.
But it’s not about a broader physical fight for worthless dirt in a perishing world. To the contrary, it’s about fighting the spiritual battle by sharing the good news of the gospel with those who are perishing in your personal sphere of influence.
Avoid the deception, lay low, and keep being a gray man. Share the gospel whenever and wherever you can but avoid becoming involved in a vain fight to save a ship that can’t be saved.
Be an ambassador for Christ—not a deceived foot soldier for Satan’s NWO program… regardless of which side of the aisle you may hail from.
As we’ve said, Left and Right just represent two wings of the same wicked bird… or two branches of Satan’s armed services. They will both lead the world to the same destination—destruction.
You can fight for your freedoms all you want, but you can’t “save” them—they are going away.
And, if you are not fighting for the Lord and His program, then you are—in actuality—fighting against Him. You are merely playing fiddle for the devil, becoming a pawn in His program, and advancing the very agenda you think you are so righteously fighting against. That’s the deception folks!
Remember, those who “fight” may appear to win a short-lived battle or two… but they will lose the war. Satan knows that and he’ll do anything he can to draw folks into the deception!
Salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone is the only answer—there is no other means by which you and I can be saved.
Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” (Ephesians 2:4-9)
