This is the real problem I have with QAnon, that they are attempting to combine the righteous reign of King Jesus at the Second Coming with new “glory days” for America, and those two things are as far from each other as the east is from the west, and they never will meet.
Over the past two weeks of my self-isolation, or should I say our self-isolation due to the current coronavirus panic, my inbox was been literally on fire with posts from fellow Christians on the “exciting coming revelation” from a group called QAnon, or simply, Q. They breathlessly send me articles and videos that announce and exclaim the “coming storm” that will sweep America clean of all the many parasites and pedophiles that run this county. So, I did what any good investigative journalist would do, I investigated.
“Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.” Jeremiah 25:30 (KJB)
QAnon has a very devoted following who follow the breadcrumb trail they lay out on a regular basis, with the promise that there is a great reward at the end. If you are not familiar with who QAnon is, start by reading this article to get up to speed. Among Q’s many promises we have a complete and total draining of the ‘The Swamp’ in Washington, DC, dismantling of the various pedophile rings in Washington and across America, a ‘day of reckoning’ for chief violators like James Comey, Hillary Clinton, and all the other offenders. All that is well and good, I would love to see those things happen, but then Q takes it one huge step further and attempts to tie in bible prophecy as the cherry on the top, and that’s where the whole thing, if you’re bible believer, comes crashing down around them.
On 4chan, a message board where all posters are anonymous and only able to post text and photos, the first QAnon post appeared on October 28, 2017. The original poster, who is believed by supporters to be a government official, has only ever identified himself as “Q” (hence, QAnon):
HRC extradition already in motion effective yesterday with several countries in case of cross border run. Passport approved to be flagged effective 10/30 @ 12:01am. Expect massive riots organized in defiance and others fleeing the US to occur. US M’s will conduct the operation while NG activated. Proof check: Locate a NG member and ask if activated for duty 10/30 across most major cities. READ MORE
As far as I know, none of what Q predicted in that first post actually happened, in fact, just the opposite happened. Hillary Clinton went on a book tour, traveled all over the world, and didn’t seem to have any passport problems at all. Certainly she was never arrested for her various crimes. Now I admit, it sounds exciting, absolutely, but was it true, did it happen? No on both counts. Now let’s see how they inject bible prophecy into the mix.
QAnon and 1000 Years of Peace: Destroying the New World Order and Taking the Kingdom of Christ by Force!
Here is an excerpt of a QAnon book, written by Redpill The World, and you will see immediately the mistaken leap they take in trying to connect the Q The Storm Is Here Movement with end times bible prophecy:
What we are all experiencing worldwide is not just another political event. As Qanon post 2937 says (QMap dot pub), “This is not simply another four-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we, the people, reclaim control over our government. – POTUS ” He’s not just talking about the U.S. Government, or any single nation’s government. He means Reclaim Control Over the Governing of the World from the worldwide criminal mafia. This will transform the world for 1000 years! Literally. Where do I get that? From the Bible is all…. This is the Great Awakening. We are fighting the New World Order in this epic Battle of Armageddon. Good versus Evil. We are embarking on 1000 years of peace and health and wealth for all of humanity! The Bible calls this the Millennial Kingdom of Christ as in- “His Kingdom come, His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” The Kingdom of Christ is when: • Christ assumes His authority as King on earth, • Christ removes those who have usurped His throne, • The “Good Guys” finally rule the earth with Him, straightening out this whole mess the DS criminals have made! No matter what the enemy tries, there’s nothing he can do to stop this! As Q said from the beginning, Big. Bigger! BIGGEST!!! This truly is the BIGGEST! That sounds Impossible! Outrageous! Too good to be true! But the Bible is chock-full of this promise. Sadly most ‘Bible scholars” don’t recognize it yet. Just like so-called “scholars” have missed what the LORD was doing from time immemorial! Just like we have been under mass deception by “experts” for years! You are welcome to simply believe what religious pundits, and political pundits, and media pundits, and every other pundit says, OR You are invited to join the white hats in the fight to take back our world, and have your eyes opened to what the LORD has promised over and over in His Word, and how He is fulfilling those promises in our Day! You will be very glad you found this book. READ MORE
As you can see, QAnon has conflated the cleaning up of America with the Second Coming of Jesus Christ who returns to bring forth a one thousand year reign of perfect peace. There is no indication in the bible that America will even exist when Jesus returns, much less have the exalted position that QAnon is trying to say it will have. The hope of the born again Christian is not and never was a “transformed America”, the so-called Deep State doesn’t even make a blip on God’s end times radar. That’s just one more piece of trash to be taken out with all the other trash, but America is not going to “restored to greatness” at the Second Coming. America will bow to King Jesus at the Second Coming and get in line like every other nation.
Want to see what God really thinks about “the nations”? Read it and weep:
“Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.” Isaiah 40:15 (KJB)
You can go right ahead and place America at the top of that list, because that’s where God places America, as nothing more than a drop in a bucket. Not a thing. Nothing. Meaningless in the grand scheme of things. And this is the real problem I have with QAnon, is they are attempting to combine the righteous reign of King Jesus at the Second Coming with new “glory days” for America, and those two things are as far as the east is from the west, and they never will meet.
“For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.” Psalm 135:4 (KJV)
God only has one nation that He places above all the others, and one city where He has chosen to place His Name, and it’s not American and Washington, DC. It is Israel and Jerusalem.
12 Times The Bible Declares The Jews And Israel To Be God’s Chosen:
- “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.” Exodus 19:5,6 (KJB)
- “For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.” Deuteronomy 7:6-8 (KJB)
- “For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.” Deuteronomy 14:2 (KJB)
- “Thou hast avouched the LORD this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice: And the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken.” Deuteronomy 26:17-19 (KJB)
- “And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name, and to do for you great things and terrible, for thy land, before thy people, which thou redeemedst to thee from Egypt, from the nations and their gods? For thou hast confirmed to thyself thy people Israel to be a people unto thee for ever: and thou, LORD, art become their God.” 2 Samuel 7:23,24 (KJB)
- “For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD.” 1 Kings 8:53 (KJB)
- “Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the LORD loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.” 1 Kings 10:9 (KJB)
- “And what one nation in the earth is like thy people Israel, whom God went to redeem to be his own people, to make thee a name of greatness and terribleness, by driving out nations from before thy people, whom thou hast redeemed out of Egypt? For thy people Israel didst thou make thine own people for ever; and thou, LORD, becamest their God.” 1 Chronicles 17:21,22 (KJB)
- “He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant: Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:” Psalm 105:8-11 (KJB)
- “For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.” Psalm 135:4 (KJB)
- “But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.” Isaiah 41:8 (KJB)
- “But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Isaiah 43:1,2 (KJB)
Now I love America, my family on my dad’s side arrived here in 1732, and we have always been part of the people that have built this country up from the beginning. My dad was a WWII veteran, and I was raised with red, white and blue blood. I pray for America and for our leaders because this is my home, and I want there to be peace, prosperity and all those good things. I began self-isolation from the day President Trump first suggested we do it. I am a USA team player, no doubt.
That said, my eyes and my hope are not on America, they are on the eastern sky where every day I look up to hear the call of “come up, hither” from my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. QAnon is not preaching salvation through Jesus Christ, they are preaching a gospel of good works wrapped in a cheap veneer of scripture verses wrongly applied. Most of what they have said has not happened, they have some truth, but sadly not near enough. If I was a Creative Writing 101 high school teacher, and QAnon was my student, I would certainly give them an A+ for their masterful conflation of fact, fiction and fantasy.
Don’t waste your time with the myriad conspiracy theories of QAnon, as entertaining as many of them are. Your time will be much better spent witnessing to the lost about salvation in Jesus Christ. Hell is real, people need to get saved, and Jesus really is coming back, those are the facts. Stick with that.
