I don’t fully believe every conspiracy theory that comes along, but I would be a liar if I said I didn’t (deep down inside) believe in them “just a little.”
I’ve always said that, if even 10% of the conspiracy theories are true, we’re in for quite a ride in the upcoming years.
Because of this “secret-yet-not-so-secret-fascination” with what COULD happen, I’m pretty familiar with the illuminati-oriented-symbolism that accompanies your present day Super Bowl.
Now I didn’t watch this year’s event, and afterwards only half-watched the halftime show on YouTube (it was playing on my phone while I was doing my work) . . . from what little I saw, it was nothing really impressive.
Still, there was something I couldn’t shake.
Sports fans, I’m sorry, but I’ve always felt that these sporting events (and all the surrounding sports-related phenomena) were all more or less scripted, like a professional wrestling match. You know . . . vicious enemies in front of the camera, yet drinking beers together when the camera’s off?
I do believe it is possible that those who REALLY run the world (or at least “think” they do – Psalm 24:1) like to throw stuff in our faces . . . so here’s what I think might have been the message . . .
BTW: I could be totally off base . . . if you call me a nut on this one, I won’t argue.
Unlike most Super Bowl conspiracy theorists, I do not believe the message was in the halftime show, but in the game itself.
Let’s look at the two teams . . . Philadelphia Eagles vs. New England Patriots.
The Eagle – American Abomination
First, we have the eagle – the very symbol of our country.
Those of us who believe everything we hear in school would proudly identify with this majestic bird of prey. We love its beauty . . . its ferocity. The prophetic movement would CERTAINLY identify with it; the “fathers” of this movement have long associated the eagle with prophecy and prophets.
But what does the Bible say?
And these you shall regard as an abomination among the birds; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, the vulture, the buzzard . . .
The eagle is an unclean beast – not to be eaten. We are not to absorb it into our beings.
Strong’s associates the Hebrew word for “abomination” with “a detestable thing or an idol.”
Is it any wonder that the prophetic movement associates itself with something that is “detestable” and an “idol”?
After listing all these dietary abominations, the Father tells us how we are to view the eagle . . .
All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.
And yet Philadelphia – the “City of Brotherly Love,” chose to associate its football team with the eagle.
Likewise, we have a mindset in America. Those who adhere to it say they value “brotherly love,” inclusiveness and unity, yet with their actions they swoop down like scavengers and devour. They are prideful and think only of what THEY can get from this country.
Their feathers are beautiful and they can fly high – but look into the eye of an eagle . . . you can see that you will get no mercy.
It sees what it wants … and it takes it.
Side Note: There are some who say that the symbol on the $1 bill is not an eagle, but rather the Phoenix. But that’s another post for another time.
Moving on to the Patriots . . .
Patriotism and the Red, White and Blue Fairy Tale
A patriot is someone who is extremely zealous for his/her country and supports “the way things used to be.”
Largely conservative in values, a patriot rarely can stay quiet when challenged to a debate or – if you’re from the deep south – something a little more physical.
The truth is that most do not realize how many lies they have been fed in school, regarding the founding of our country.
This is not a recent development.
Winston Churchill is famous for saying “History is written by the victors,” and it’s true . . . but a patriot can only see the history that is the closest to his/her belief system.
This is so true of the religious right who are dogmatic in their belief that America has some sort of special place in God’s eyes because “by golly, we’re a Christian nation!” (another farce) . . . and the pulpit-masters chuckle as they see the lemmings wave the “good ole’ Red, White and Blue.”
Please don’t get me wrong. I appreciate the dwindling freedoms our country has granted to us, and I appreciate the sacrifice of those who have fought for us – but I’m a realist.
We are not always “the good guys,” and our actions (both domestic and abroad) are rarely “God ordained.”
But, you see, if you’re a “patriot,” you usually don’t allow yourself to consider this.
The New England Patriots were originally based in Boston, Massachusetts – only 15 miles away from Salem, where they had the famous witch trials. Boston held their own witch trials as well, although they were not quite so famous.
So you have two sides facing off, here . . . a mirror of the two main divisions in America.
You have your self-absorbed, Social Justice Warrior who is fooled into thinking that they are fighting for their rights by looting stores and “lovingly” beating on those who disagree with them. Anyone with a half a brain can see that they are acting out the delusions foisted upon them by their politicians, professors and media celebrities.
And you have your self-righteous religious right, who think they have God on their side because they go to church, hate gays and live in America. But anyone who reads the Word knows that true citizens of the Kingdom will not hide behind man-made practices and values, but will adhere to the values, commands and practices that God put in place long before the church fathers twisted it to their liking.
The End Game
Like I said, I didn’t watch the game, but from what I heard, the Eagles pretty much dominated, with the Patriots nipping at their heels until the very end. Yet when the end came, the patriot had to bow to the scavenger.
The rulers of this world would like to have the game end like that . . . but like we said from the beginning, “The Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.”
And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.
And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
But that time is not yet.
Until then, we must endure as the masses gather round and sing to their Prince, “I Would Die for You.”
