- "The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it." – Morpheus elaborating on ‘The Matrix’ to his protégé Neo.
In the movie The Matrix, Morpheus explains to Neo that the Matrix itself is a system. What exactly is a system?
The word ‘SYSTEM’ is defined as:
1. A group of interacting, interrelated, or interdependent elements forming a complex whole.
2. The prevailing social order; the establishment.
The system is a set of rules that govern the behaviour of people on this planet. People in various countries live under different forms of government, ranging from somewhat democratic to almost completely totalitarian. Regardless of the form of government in power, the ‘system’ as defined in the movie is not necessarily a political entity. Nor is it an economic or religious entity. Economics, politics, and religion do define life for most people on earth but the system itself is something that is intangible yet all pervasive.
Morpheus tells Neo that The Matrix is prison for the mind. The Matrix, as symbolised by The System is an idea, rather it is an ideology that keeps people voluntarily enslaved within their own minds. People govern their minds, and therefore their lives, based on their belief as to the purpose of their life. This purpose need not necessarily be verbalized or defined, even in their own minds, but the way people conduct their lives reveals their belief more than words. Ergo, The Matrix is not exactly a system but rather a BELIEF SYSTEM, an externally imposed belief system that has not originated with man but has kept man enslaved for thousands of years. Present day economic, political and religious systems are all an integral part of The Matrix but are not The Matrix itself. The ideology that is The Real Matrix is very subtle and diabolical, and no wonder, since it originates with a non – human entity that is very subtle, and who is not just diabolical, he is the devil himself. So what is The Real Matrix?
The movie definition of the Matrix as ‘the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth’ is strikingly similar to the Biblical definition above of the blinding of the mind by the god of this world, namely Satan. Since the Bible predates the movie by almost two millennia, it would be safe to assume that the moviemakers borrowed from the Bible rather than the other way around. As mentioned in part 1, the movie’s storyline as well a lot of symbolism is borrowed from the Bible. For examples names such as ‘Zion’ and ‘Nebuchadnezzar’ are Biblical names, and in a more esoteric way names such as ‘Neo’, the ‘One’ and ‘Trinity’ are also related to the Bible. The messianic overtones of Neo’s mission are too obvious to be missed. The story’s climax of Neo’s death and subsequent resurrection to defeat the ‘agents’ of evil seem to have been lifted straight out of the pages of the Bible. Look at the following scripture and tell me it is not reminiscent of the movie’s climactic showdown with Agent Smith: Hebrews 2 v 14: Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil...
In order to understand the purpose of The Real Matrix and how it operates in our world to keep people blinded from the truth, we need to understand that there is more to our world than just what we see with our eyes. Biblically speaking there are two dimensions, the visible dimension which is the natural world or the dimension of Matter, and the invisible dimension, which is the spiritual world or the dimension of Energy. The Bible teaches that spirits are INTELLIGENT ENERGIES, they are intelligent powers, thinking forces, immaterial, unseen influences that completely and absolutely control and manage the visible natural world. Matter is not just influenced; it is absolutely controlled and powered by the unseen, invisible dimension of Energy, by the spirit world.
From a Biblical viewpoint there are two kinds of spirits or energies that control the natural visible world. The first kind are angels that God has assigned over various so-called natural forces such as water, wind, the sun, and all of material creation. For example we can read in
- Revelation 7:1: And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
The above scripture reveals that ‘natural’ forces such as the wind are not uncontrolled energies; there is someone, some power, some intelligence that is always in control of such forces.
The following scriptures are other examples of intelligent unseen powers directing events that are falsely identified as ‘natural disasters’. They are sometimes called ‘Acts of God’, and this would be a more accurate description since nothing happens on Earth or anywhere else in the Universe for that matter that is not ordered by God. The execution of such orders is carried out by angels. In the false paradigm of the Matrix reality that most people think to be the real world, angels are portrayed as effeminate little men with wings or little fat babies with wings but in reality they are powerful ‘Pneumatic Pyro – Electric’ beings that have more than enough energy to turn the earth upside down. Hebrews 1 v 7: And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits (literally winds), and his ministers a flame of fire. Archimedes once observed that if he had a lever long enough he could move the whole earth. God’s angels have such power to turn the earth upside down and this power will be openly on display in the days and years to come.
It is a given fact as has been noted by many researchers that so – called ‘natural disasters’ such as earthquakes, hurricanes, typhoons etc. have been increasing in intensity and magnitude, and many researchers are predicting a pole shift due to the earth being turned upside down on its axis, or even a shift in the axis itself. In the movie, 2012, the South Pole moves to Wisconsin. Hollywood and science would have us believe that such catastrophic events are due to natural, uncontrolled forces, nothing could be further from the truth. A pole shift, the earth turning on its axis causing continent ravaging tsunamis and super volcanoes to erupt are all possible and probable near future scenarios but not due to natural inexplicable phenomenon. The following scripture from the OT book of the prophet Isaiah pretty much sums up the whole movie 2012, and provides the cause for such catastrophes, His name is The LORD, Jehovah.
- Isaiah 24 v 1: Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. Isaiah 24:6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. At the end of the movie there were few men left but the Bible assigns a cause to such devastating events not randomness.
I have previously written in some detail on the fact of ‘Weather Modification’ by man, man has been attempting to play God to try and manipulate the powers of the natural world. One of my articles, Playing God with the weather explains this decades old process in some detail. If man can think himself intelligent enough to try and take control of the forces of the natural world, why can there not exist beings of higher intelligence and power that are already in control? Many self proclaimed ‘prophets’ are prophesying catastrophic ‘earth changes’ as a result of ‘global warming’. Many are predicting doomsday scenarios as a result of asteroids and other heavenly bodies such as Planet X impacting or passing close by earth and causing disasters on an unimaginable scale. However they neglect to assign intelligent causes to such probable future events.
Take for example the much hyped Global Warming / Climate Change agenda that has been steamrolled into law the world over through treaties such as Kyoto bringing in carbon taxes and other burdensome regulations. As has been proven the science behind this agenda is less than suspect, it is fraudulent. If Global warming does become reality it will not be as a result of hairsprays or other aerosols, or even as a result of too many SUVs, there will be an external intelligent cause for it as proven by scriptures such as the one listed below:
- Revelation 16:8 we read: “And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire”.
So the Bible concurs with the Global Warming / Al Gore crowd that increased solar activity is a certainty but not without cause, someone is very much in control at all times, and that someone is God. Men of course would rather not acknowledge such control for that would make themselves accountable to God for their actions and would require them to repent, to not continue with their hedonistic, selfish and avaricious lives. Repent means to change, and that is a No No! No, they would much rather prefer the scientific view that it is all random...no one is in control.
So the Bible makes it clear that there are intelligent supernatural invisible spirits or energies appointed by God to control and manage all of creation not just the Earth. Let’s stop and think for a minute about a building such as a hotel, an apartment building or a hospital. The building first of all is planned in great detail taking into consideration all the things and personnel that will be required to make it function and keep it running. Electricity, water, waste disposal, heating, cooling, and ventilation systems are all planned and constructed in the building. Then a maintenance department is created with adequate number of personnel to ensure a smooth operation of the building. The Earth is like a building that was constructed with all relevant energy requirements to keep it functioning smoothly placed within it. Not just within it but also around it, for example a building can function on solar energy, so too does the earth draw energy from the sun and possibly other sources not on or below its surface.
Maintenance managers have also been appointed to ensure its smooth functioning such as the ‘angel of the waters’ mentioned in Revelation 16 v 5. Even in mythology, spirits or gods, intelligent powers were associated with all matter, even inorganic matter. There were spirits that controlled mountains, lakes, the seas, rivers, trees, the air, even rocks and the entire natural world including man. This concept is strange to modern minds that have been conditioned by so – called science that so desperately tries to convince us that all natural processes are attributable to random causes. This is an insult and affront to our God given intelligence and we need not waste our time trying to prove them wrong. The day of disclosure, of the revealing of non – human intelligences that play an active role in human affairs and so-called natural processes is just upon the horizon. Yes, the day will dawn soon when people will be made aware that man is not the only intelligent being in the Universe, not even on the Earth. How and why these non – human intelligences that are currently hidden behind the veil of the invisible domain must be made visible will be addressed at some later date.
I would like to give a couple more Biblical examples of the ‘unnatural’ causes of so – called ‘natural disasters’ and coming planet wide catastrophes, now being predicted by more people than ever before in history. I believe such events are a certainty not because of Al Gore’s so – called science but because the Bible tells me so.
· Revelation 8:8: And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood...Does this not sound like an asteroid or similar body hitting the earth as shown in the movie, Deep Impact?
· Revelation 8:12: And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. Does this not seem like the result of vast amounts of dust covering the planet, possibly volcanic ash, as from Yellowstone’s eruption in the movie ‘2012’, and the movie ‘Super Volcano’.
In conclusion to Part 2 of this series, I would like to say that it has hopefully been proven that unseen intelligent forces are in control of our natural world. God created this building called the ‘Earth’ and he has appointed caretakers to manage it much as any man made building has maintenance managers. These spirit beings that control and manage the natural world are identified in the Bible as angels. As mentioned earlier angels are literally beings made of energy, not matter, and have immense intelligence and power.
There also exist another type of intelligent spirits called ‘devils’ who also inhabit the unseen dimension and serve a different purpose. These intelligent but evil spirits do not exist to control the forces of nature but rather to control the very nature of man. They do this by creating an alternate belief system, by subtly influencing the thinking processes of man to convince him to willingly place value upon mundane and meaningless things, to believe The Matrix to be the Real World. The architect of The Real Matrix is Satan who has created an ideology, a belief system for man that has no basis in reality. The reason for the creation of, and existence of these ‘evil spirits’, forces of darkness and negative energies, and their influence upon mankind will be discussed in part 3.
