A lot of Christians who dove head-long into conspiracy theories have had their faith broken. QAnon spoke in spiritual terms of a Great Awakening that would come in 2021. This has an appeal to Christians, but I am afraid that in the final analysis that it was a hoped for political victory, rather than Christ’s victorious kingdom.
The good news is that we can quash the idea of a triumphalist premillennial victory (which is still better than pessimistic defeatism) and work to convince our fellow Christians that the kingdom doesn’t come all at once, but gradually among us as we surrender more of our lives to the Lordship of Jesus. Even so, Christian dominion does not come without setbacks.
“Trust the plan” is a better slogan for postmillennialists than QAnon followers. I was always skeptical of QAnon. A big part of me wanted to believe, but I knew better. There is a much bigger picture. God’s plan is better than our plan.
“Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land” (Exodus 23:30).
There is humanism in both the political left and right. I believe we are seeing the death scream of egalitarian humanism in our generation. Christians need to abandon hope in political messiahs. I expect to see the left become hysterical in the next few years. Like the great red dragon of Revelation 12, they have come down to us in great wrath, for they know that their time is short.
