Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines “conspiracy” as:
: a secret plan made by two or more people to do something that is harmful or illegal
: the act of secretly planning to do something that is harmful or illegal

In the Garden of Eden, we see the first record of a conspiracy played out when the serpent attempted to undermine what God had told Adam and Eve. His plan? To usurp the place of God in the lives of the first two humans by luring them into a path of disobedience to God.

Satan didn’t actually reveal his plan to Eve, but when he delivered subtle disinformation to color her view of what she believed to be truth, he set his conspiracy in motion. His goal has always been (and still is) to rise up above his Creator. Before God created humans, Satan was already at work within the ranks of the angels. Humans presented him with a new set of pawns to use to further his rebellion against God.

This spiritual conspiracy, set in motion thousands of years ago, is still at work behind the scenes in our world’s events. Satan and the fallen angels who follow him manipulate the actions of key people in our world today and spread their disinformation about who God really is.

Will we fall for their lies? Or will we work to expose his plan and share the truth with all who will listen?

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12 NIV
