If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them; you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams. For the LORD your God is testing you, to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” (Deuteronomy 13:1-3)

2 Timothy 1:7 states, “for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” Yet today, there are individuals who are determined to strike fear into the heart of many who would listen to their rhetoric as they plant the seeds of terror and fear among the people. Their divisive words mask their true intentions – to deceive. Among other popular voices, none stand out more when it comes to conspiracy theories and anti-Government rhetoric than Alex Jones.

From his public stunts with a bull horn to his entertaining on-air rants, Jones has carved a niche among audiences who, by their own predisposition, lean to a more off branch of civil anarchy masqueraded by a so called “conservative” platform. But is Jones less of a patriot and more of a prophet of fear? From the very beginning of his career, Jones began to utilize radio, gaining a broad audience long before the events of 9-11. By the time the twin towers fell, things began to shift in this nation and a seemingly spectrum of discontent began to surface – distrust. Distrust of Government leaders, distrust of American idealism and a distrust of any thing or any one who would dare suggest the obvious was true – that very bad men planned and then carried out the worst attack in American history in the 20th century.

The issue is not really so much about Jones’ belief of conspiracy within Government, nor his continuing belief which says a plot to overthrow the America of the past. Instead, Jones, and those like him, have another ideology, which runs counter to what they truly believe – anarchy. But not just anarchy, they oppose anything or anyone who would dare disagree with their concept of a utopian society where the people are controlled and ruled by their own beliefs and agendas. This is not only fruitless, it’s also dangerous.

There is a reason why God placed leadership to govern, because people are fickle. People can be for something one day and against it the next – fickle. They change their opinion by the changing of the wind. This is why leadership is so greatly important and why God instituted good Government. But with everything, sin and wickedness of men’s  hearts have abandoned God’s prescribed order of things and instead, men reject the path of righteousness and seek out their own will, completely disregarding the plan of God.

What Jone’s does is build fear, fear of everything around us, fear of the water, fear of the air, fear of big Government, fear of violence and conspiracy to corrupt children, even the fear of death lingers upon Jone’s lips as he flaunts his disregard to commonsense and humanity. In other words, what Alex Jones is doing is promoting hate, hate for his brother and those whom he believes is the enemy. And to be clear, Alex Jones considered anyone who disregards his views as the real enemy – including the church.

It must be understood that Jones is a libertarian and as such, he has more than once condemned the nation of Israel. Jones has stated many times in the past of his disdain for born again evangelicals as well as those of the Jewish faith, it is those two groups of people whom Jones opposes – why? Because Jones resists the words of Jesus to “Love thy neighbor”. Instead of love, Jones would use a force, even deadly force to resist the tyranny he believes is coming. But the truth is, Alex is not only wrong on his stance from just a biblical position, he’s wrong from a political position. The great prophet Daniel stated that “by peace shall destroy many” (Daniel 8:25).

The reality is, when the man of sin (antichrist) comes upon this world in the future, not only will he not be resisted, he will be celebrated. There will not be, as Jones declares so often on his radio program, of a rebellion against tyranny, in reality what Jones fails to realize or even understand is the world at this particular time will want the man of peace, for by then wars, famine, suffering will have had a major toll upon society itself that anyone who could bring about world peace will be accepted – including Alex Jones. This is the real issue and one Jones fails to see. Instead, his focus is on causing man’s hearts to fear of everything around him, but it’s not God’s way, nor those who have placed their hope in Jesus Christ.

Alex Jones is simply another peddler of another kind of product which is fear, fear of anyone and every thing. Yet sadly, many pay homage to this man’s antics and fail to realize that if they would just read the word of God, and have a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ to where they know they are saved, born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, they would not worry about what tomorrow holds, for I can assure the reader that the days are going to get worse, the times will become difficult and the state of the world’s nations will reach a point of great turmoil. But for the believer who has placed their trust in what Christ did for them on the cross and keep their eyes on him and him alone, nothing, not even antichrist himself can worry us. For we have overcome the world by the cross.

It truly does not matter what men do, even if they do conspire to destroy, has God not promised us, those who have placed their faith in Christ an escape? Yes he has. Titus 2:13 “waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,That is the hope of every born again believer, not in civil war, not in anarchy or even political anarchy, but in the physical return of Jesus Christ, who himself will establish his kingdom and make right that which was wrong, to establish his kingdom for 1,000 years. This is our hope, not in the promises of one Alex Jones – the prophet of fear.
