This morning, the word “psyops” came to mind. I knew it was something the Lord wanted me to process. I had an idea of what the word meant but researched its meaning to gain greater clarity on the subject.
A psyops is an abbreviated intelligence agency term for “psychological operation.” These operations are designed to influence the perceptions and attitudes of individuals and groups. A psyops disseminates packaged information to influence the emotions, motives, and reasoning of people. Its goal is to ultimately alter the behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.
The agenda of these psychological operations are motivated by control and greed. The power of a psyops is their ability to make their agenda palatable to the masses. Once a psyops has engrained its deception into the minds of people it is almost impossible to undo its influence unless an intervening revelation takes place that interrupts the process of indoctrination.
The only one way to remain safe and spiritually sane under the influence of a psyops is to live in the presence and under the influence of God’s Spirit. Giving the reins of our discernment to those who feed the machine of a psyops will lead to a place of spiritual, emotional, and physical jeopardy. We are constantly surrounded by the influence of Orwellian-like plans and programs that many people of faith dismiss as simply foolishness or the result of an over-active imagination. That conclusion itself is evidence of the effectiveness of a psyops.
As followers of Jesus Christ, our greatest need in this hour is for supernatural discernment. We need to be able to see through the menus of deception being offered to us. This insight will not come from our media, social norms, and sadly, from some pulpits. Dark spiritual psyops are taking place and they are forming worldviews and interpretations of reality contrary to truth. The effects of these spiritual psyops are irresistible to those without discernment and a warning to those with deeper insight that our present understanding of reality may not be as accurate as we once believed.
