We know that the Devil sets up counterfeits at the same time that God sets up his truths.
Most of us readily accept the fact that God is planning for the return of Jesus Christ to rule and reign as king of the whole world. We also readily accept that most, if not everything, Satan does is in direct opposition to Christ. If this is true, then just as the Father and Son are taking steps to prepare for the ushering in of this one world government, so is Satan. This idea is really what is pushing the conspiracy on a global, national, and local scale. It is not just a bunch of politicians and rich guys that want to be in power forever. That is not their goal. Their real goal is to eventually put their master, Lucifer, in as dictator of the entire planet. Their real goal is to rob Jesus Christ of his right to rule and reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
“It is the supremacy of this earth that is being contended for. Satan is deter-mined that God shall not have this earth, and that He shall not reign here; he is determined in this, and if he could he would shed the blood of every man and woman on the face of the earth, rather than it should go into the hands of God. All those who are connected with him would, if they could, slay every man that stands in their pathway.” - George Q. Cannon, Journal of Discourses 24:375-76
Unfortunately for them, that is not going to happen, for it has been prophesied that “they shall war among themselves, and the sword of their own hands shall fall upon their own heads, and they shall be drunken with their own blood... yea, that great and abominable church, shall tumble to the dust and great shall be the fall of it.” - 1 Nephi 22:14-15
It can be discouraging to look around and observe all of the results and effects that have and are coming into place because of this Satanic conspiracy. Yet, all the prophets have looked forward to our time. We should too. Not only do we have reason to rejoice, but we should be down right excited about the things that we have an opportunity to be a part of.
Good Wins In The End
During a Defending Utah Activist member training, Ben talked about the Kingdom of God. After giving some insight and reading some quotes about it, he turned to Enoch and asked if he had anything to add. Enoch's response was exactly what I was thinking at that time: “Nope, just that that is awesome.” Simple, but it couldn't have been put any better. How awe-inspiring and remarkable it is to think of a government without corruption that is ruled by the Supreme Creator of the universe and protects every single individual on the planet in his own inalienable rights. A government that will fulfill what every other government has failed to do. A government that exercises no form of tyranny in any matter. A government that only has laws based off a complete and full understanding of justice, mercy, and individual rights. A government so perfect, pure, and flawless that it takes a being so perfect, pure, and flawless to govern it. And to think that we, at Defending Utah, have the opportunity to help restore the culture that will bring this into fruition, is incredible.
So, next time your friends or family ask about Defending Utah and what it is that we do, re-member that we are not just fighting for our freedoms, it is much more than that. We are doing what we can to help bring to pass the establishment of the greatest government the world has ever and will ever see, the Kingdom of God.
