In a previous Prophecy Update on August 11, 2021 titled Puppet Master Conspiracy, I discussed why I believe that the vast majority of highly placed individuals around the world didn’t necessarily make it to the top on their own merits. We want to think that meritocracy reigns, i.e. that ambitious people through hard work alone reach the pinnacle of their professions. Unfortunately, because so many of these people are – if not anti-God – certainly secular and agnostic, they don’t have God’s favor in their lives. Few in the world have God’s hand of blessing upon them to make it to such high levels. How can I say that? Easy. Never forget what Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14:
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”
If there are few who find that narrow gate, that also means by definition that those gaining great prominence in the world will be few. Add to that again what Jesus said in Matthew 10:24-25 about wealthy individuals:
“Children, how difficult it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.”
Actually, there are two possibly interrelated reasons unsaved individuals reach the exalted heights of business, government, entertainment, or what-have-you.
One is that these pagans are being used by God for His specific purposes to bring judgment. We see this all the time in the Old Testament where God, for instance, used the fierce warrior nation of Assyria to bring down the Northern Kingdom of Israel after God got fed up enough with Israel for her great apostasy of following other gods . However, after using Assyria like this, because that nation itself was extremely unrighteous, God brought His hammer of judgment down and destroyed it
Two is that these people to which we’re referring today have likely sold their souls to the devil. This is an age-old bargain that people make. They give up eternity for the pleasures of this world and the moment. Don’t think for an instant that this is rare. Of course, there could very well be a convergence of items one and two, but for the purposes of this Update, we’ll keep them separate. I went through a lengthy explanation in the Puppet Master Conspiracy Prophecy Update, but I’ll briefly reiterate how this works before connecting it to the title of this Update.
