Shadow Governments are not new to the world, but are also found in the bible. People who head such movements are egotist and crave attention and power. They will do anything and hurt anyone to achieve the power they think they deserve.
I encourage you to read 2 Samuel 15 which is a prime of example of a Shadow Government take over. Absalom, the son of King David, wanted to be the King & did not want to wait until appointed. He actually plotted against his dad, King David.
Shadow Government are of course created in darkness and in secret. They are gradually implemented in small steps. Here are the steps:
STEP 1: MAKE OTHERS THINK YOU ARE IMPORTANT
Absalom prepared 50 chariot & horses along with 50 men that ran before him to clear the way & announce his arrival. Today one uses news media to make sure their faces are constantly in front of the camera doing something supposedly good or falsely accusing and undermining their opponents.
STEP 2: MAKE SURE YOUR HEADQUARTERS ARE IN A PRIME LOCATION
You locate yourself where govt. leaders & business men take care of laws & business transactions. In Bible times it was @ the gates where people passed coming & going. 2 Samuel 15:2-3 (KJV) And Absalom rose up early, and stood beside the way of the gate: and it was so, that when any man that had a controversy came to the king for judgment, then Absalom called unto him, and said, Of what city art thou? And he said, Thy servant is of one of the tribes of Israel.
Have you noticed that now a days this is done in our Capitol City, Washington DC. We have many who slyly undermine our leaders. They do this by distractions, half truths and fear tactics.
STEP 3: BE CHARISMATIC (a compelling charm that inspires devotion in others)
Absalom was very personable & persuasive young man. 2 Samuel 15:4-6 (KJV) Absalom said moreover, Oh that I were made judge in the land, that every man which hath any suit or cause might come unto me, and I would do him justice! 5 And it was so, that when any man came nigh to him to do him obeisance, he put forth his hand, and took him, and kissed him.6 And on this manner did Absalom to all Israel that came to the king for judgment: so Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel.
We have some who are or have been leaders that are very charismatic. They deceive you with their charm while hiding their ultimate goal for complete controlling power. Some of these leaders are so corrupt you are amazed that they aren’t in jail.
STEP 4: SPY ON PEOPLE
2 Samuel 15:10 (KJV) But Absalom sent spies throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, As soon as ye hear the sound of the trumpet, then ye shall say, Absalom reigneth in Hebron.
We have been hearing a lot about our current Shadow Govt. spying & unmasking citizens and candidates when they were in power. To draw attention away from this they play the blame game. Some of our Intel Agents have gone rogue, each with their own agendas.
STEP 5: ORGANIZE PEOPLE & ARMIES
Sometimes you become part of bad things & you don’t even realize it. 2 Samuel 15:11,12b (KJV) And with Absalom went two hundred men out of Jerusalem, that were called; and they went in their simplicity, and they knew not any thing…12b And the conspiracy was strong; for the people increased continually with Absalom. These men had no idea what Absalom was up to. They were following this man blindly (as they were called to do).
Today we have people that do not read or check out facts, they just blindly believe and follow. They have become angry people, who believe it is okay to physically hurt people & destroy property to further their cause, unfortunately some don’t even know what the cause is. They want freedom of speech, but don’t want someone else to have it. Today we actually have paid protesters.
STEP 6: EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM
This step is a modern day step, but was warned against in the Bible. The Bible tells us to teach our children His ways 24/7. We took God out of our schools, but let the schools teach our children that there is no God. After a few generations of this most of them scoff at believers. We let people rewrite history to appease them, not the truth. We are suppose to learn from history, not to repeat the same mistakes, but now like the Nazi’s in Germany we are erasing history. They burned books, we just rewrite them.
Today’s shadow govt. has it much easier than Absalom did. (Don’t be fooled for a minute that there isn’t a modern day Shadow Govt.) They have satellite television, radio stations, newspapers, the educational system and social media at their fingertips to achieve their ultimate goals.
People don’t ever forget we are in a daily spiritual war. I ask you to ponder on the message I presented to you. To think about the reality of our present world. You may agree with me or disagree, but remember God’s words to us: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) “
