I’ve covered Q-related issues before (Q Goes New Age and Q: Bait for Conservative American Patriots to be Deceived by the Great Delusion), so if you haven’t read those articles I highly recommend reading them first. As I’ve been monitoring Q-related channels lately I’ve come to the realization that there are many fundamental similarities between the “Q Plan” and God’s Plan of Salvation. As I analyzed these similarities I came to the sad conclusion that many of those Q folks who “Trust the Plan” have replaced their faith in Christ with a hope in humanity instead. They’ve chosen an easier belief system over one that requires more abundant faith. Let’s look into the similarities as well as the differences.
In the Bible we read in Ephesians 6:12 “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” Christianity has always embraced the fact that there are forces beyond our perception and that there is, for lack of a better term, a “spiritual battle” raging around the world. The Bible is full of references to heavenly hosts (angels) who possess the ability to go unseen when desired, while also appearing visibly and physically when needed. Christians know that our invisible God is always at work, in both obvious and subtle ways. Our faith is solidly rooted in the belief that there is a unseen battle being waged between Christ’s heavenly hosts and the Adversary’s legions.
In the Q lore there has always been a mystique of shadowy Deep State bad guys fighting against Trump and his elite teams of military “White Hats”. These battles are often depicted by anons as taking place in D.U.M.B.s (Deep Underground Military Bases) or even throughout our solar system as part of the Secret Space Program. The one common thread is that almost all the activity is being obscured from public view. Anons often point to shallow earthquakes and underground flooding as “evidence” that the White Hats are waging a war against the Deep State in these underground facilities (see below
Whose Plan Do You Trust?
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” There are many verses in the Bible about trusting God’s Plan. As Christians we believe that God is perfect, He knows everything that has ever happened and will ever happen. Nothing is a surprise to Him, and we can be assured that He works all things out for good. As Christians, God is our “Master Architect”. He built this entire universe and even in the face of sinful rebellion (which He knew would happen, see the History and Humanity sections of this website for details) He has crafted a perfect Plan that will forever rid His Kingdom of the plague of sin.
Within the Qanon world the “Master Architect” of the “plan” is debatable and uncertain. The one thing all Q anons know is that they have been told repeatedly to “Trust the Plan.” It’s a bit unclear who is in charge of this so-called plan. Some say that it’s a singular individual, many believe it to be Trump himself. Others think that Q is actually a group of White Hat military intelligence officers, possibility using quantum time-travel technology. In any case, the Master Architect of the Q movement is unequivocally a human or group of humans. This is what separates Christians from Q anons; we trust in God’s Plan, anons trust in the machinations of man.
A Sudden Reckoning
The entire Bible is filled with references to a sudden day of judgement known as “The Day of the Lord“. This Biblical event is characterized by the return of Christ as a conquering King, defeating all of the Adversaries and liberating the saints through the power of the Resurrection. The Bible contains many descriptions of the suddenness of His return:
- Zechariah 14:7: “But it will be a unique day, which is known to the Lord, neither day nor night, but at evening time there shall be light.”
- Malachi 3:2: “But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap.”
- Isaiah 13:6: “Wail, for the day of the Lord is near; as destruction from the Almighty it will come!”
- Joel 2:1-2: “Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming; it is near, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness!”
- Matthew 24:27: “For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”
- Matthew 24:36-39: “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”
- 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3: “For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, ‘There is peace and security,’ then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.”
- 2 Peter 3:10: “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.”
- Revelation 16:15: “Behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”
These passages underscore the idea that Christ’s return will happen suddenly and unexpectedly, catching many unaware. The imagery of a thief in the night and the comparison to lightning emphasizes the rapid and unforeseen nature of this event.
The Q anon community has their own version of such a reckoning, often referred to as the “10 Days of Darkness.” The “10 Days of Darkness” is one of the speculative elements within the Q conspiracy theory. It suggests that there will be a period of widespread power outages, internet shutdowns, and/or a media blackout, during which supposed revelations and arrests will take place. Even though “Q” has not posted in over 8 months there are still many in the community that continue to peddle the idea of an impending event:
Q anon followers believe that at some point in the future, all of the conspiracy theories and claims put forth by Q will be proven true and will be publicly acknowledged. This would involve the exposure, arrest, and punishment of the members of the Cabal, including prominent politicians, celebrities, and other figures. Q anon followers believe that these events will bring about a reckoning and a cleansing of corrupt elements from the government and other institutions, leading to a better and more just society.
The idea of “vindication” is deeply tied to a sense of confirmation and validation for Q followers. They believe that the information they’ve been following and sharing, often characterized by cryptic messages and theories, will be justified in the eyes of the larger public, leading to a dramatic shift in societal and political dynamics.
As Christians, we too look forward to a future day when all that we’ve put faith in is proven true by the return of Christ. Unlike Q followers however, our satisfaction comes not from being proven “right,” but about the ultimate fulfillment of God’s divine purpose, including the establishment of God’s timeless divine kingdom. Conversely, anons eagerly await human judgement, arrests, tribunals and executions. Many in the Q community salivate and fantasize about the punishment of the Cabal. And although their punishments may be justly deserved, the dispensing of human punishment is often fraught with injustice and error.
As Christians we know that God’s judgement and punishment is truly fair. Although there is some debate among Christian theologians about the exact outcome of God’s ultimate judgement (eternal hell vs annihilation vs reconciliation) we can be assured that justice will be served. Personally I am persuaded that annihilationism is closest to the truth, in which case all who refuse to accept Christ as their King will simply be destroyed, ceasing to exist for the rest of eternity – and not tormented in Hell for eternity. In my view it is the most logical, just and compassionate interpretation of God’s final judgement.
In both Christian eschatology (the study of end times) and the Q phenomenon there is a common belief that after the Day of Judgement will come a time of harmony, peace and tranquility. As Christians we know this follows the Millennium, a time when sin will be eradicated from existence and we will all live in peace with Christ as our King.
It turns out Q anon followers have their own version of a utopia following the “10 Days of Darkness” – often referred to GESERA/NESERA (The Global / National Economic Security & Reformation Act).
This is by far one of the biggest red flags to the Q anon movement. The whole NESERA/GESERA concept is heavily rooted in New Age beliefs and relies exclusively on human intervention by “White Hats”. It requires huge leaps of faith to believe that there’s a human solution to all the world’s problems and that these “White Hats” in military intelligence are able to guarantee world peace for 1,000 years, in addition to all the other components. Trying to implement such a plan on a global scale, in the face of the current political landscape is laughable. There is no human or political solution to the current degeneracy and turmoil that humanity is facing today.
Why Are Q Anons Substituting God’s Plan?
The Q phenomenon isn’t dangerous because the underlying accusations are untrue. On the contrary, I’m sure many of the “conspiracies” alleged by Q regarding a Cabal of Satan-worshipping elite celebrities, politicians and businessmen are true. We all should know by now that Lucifer and the fallen angels are pulling the strings on those in human positions of power. No, what makes the Q phenomenon dangerous are the solutions it offers. Sure, some Q posts encourage praying and trusting God, but what Q really wants is for you to trust the humans that are supposedly executing this plan to liberate humanity. Q is a humanism trap to replace God’s perfect Plan with a convoluted scheme by alleged “White Hats” to save humanity.
Worshipping Trusting the human Q plan is far easier than trusting God’s Plan because the human plan is tangible. There are plenty of conspiracy channels out there dedicated to connecting real-world events to alleged “White Hat” activity. Yes, believing in Q does require a degree of faith, especially because of the way the left-wing has smeared Q anon followers. There’s now a persecution complex to being a Q follower that further drives anons deeper into their belief system. However, trusting God’s Plan requires a greater amount of faith because it is more often intangible and tends to operate in more subtle manners. In today’s world people don’t want subtle solutions, they want to see action. Q provides that action in the form of elaborate conspiracy theories, most likely mixing elements of truth with a heap of lies.
Q is a faith-based trap that offers superficial solutions to problems for which there is no political answer. This is exactly why Lucifer and his legions of fallen angels will become involved. Without the sudden intervention of extraterrestrial forces, the human “White Hats” would never be able to accomplish their agenda of “waking up” the public and shifting the masses to realize that the Q conspiracies were real. The Galactic Federation will offer Q anon followers the vindication they crave and the solutions promised all these years. Conservatives and right-wing folks who have been steeped in the Q community will become some of the most fervent supporters of these benevolent extraterrestrials because they will validate most, if not all, of the Q conspiracies. Then, once those conspiracies have been validated, Lucifer and his accomplices will then offer the solutions – all of which inevitably lead to humanism and self-worship. This is the trap. Don’t fall for it!
