The danger of tyranny in any form is its ability to remain undetected in its early stages of influence until a designated moment when it executes its ultimate plan for control – a control not noticed and fervently dismissed by those who continue to believe a prepared deceptive narrative. This deception is masked under a variety of definitions that make the acceptance of control tolerable for those unable to discern what is taking place. To challenge tyranny, or even mention its possibility, is seen by some as an act of rebellion and will draw the ire of both the controllers and those being controlled.
Entire societies and religious environments can collapse under the influence of tyranny with such rapidity that it will appear confusing to those not in tune with the Spirit. God allows this kind of collapse so that something better can be built in its place that more accurately reflects His heart for the Church and a nation.
We are currently experiencing an ongoing collapse of both religious and cultural structures. What is taking place is like watching a slow-motion video of a building collapsing under the influence of well-placed explosive charges designed to compromise a structure at the moment of detonation. In the debris and despair of these collapsed structures, hope is always present. This hope is never considered by those blinded by the temporary power of their tyranny or those who choose to obediently follow its dictates.
