Recently, I heard this phrase in my spirit: "The algorithm of God." I understood the implication of that phrase as a contrast to the controls set in place by some elements within the media, and social media, which are contrary to the will of God. Their control is beginning to unravel. Their unrighteous algorithms are being dismantled by the intercession and prophetic voice of the Church.
An algorithm is broadly defined as a step-by-step procedure set in place to solve a problem or accomplish a preferred end. In computer work, they are computational procedures that create a system, which (if correctly applied) will ensure the desired outcome.
Hell's Algorithmic Control
Hell has hijacked the process of these algorithms to set in place its dark agenda. Our culture is deep into the effects of algorithmic control over what content we can view and what opinions we are free to process.
This began somewhat innocently to promote and facilitate the purchase of certain products. For example, when we type into our computer keyboards an inquiry regarding a purchase, the search is then logged into existing algorithms created by programmers; then a product appears. These programmers position certain products at the top of our computer screen so that they are the first thing we see. They also bury competing products of our available options—the ones they don't want us to see.
Some elements of algorithmic programming have taken a sinister turn however. Now, differing opinions or evidence that could clarify reality are being controlled by these manipulations. (Photo via Pxhere)
The Only Reliable Programmer
God's Spirit is the only reliable programmer of our spiritual algorithm. He can confound and reveal the most sophisticated forms of deception and control.
Daniel wrote: "He changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him." (Daniel 2:21-22)
Jesus told His disciples, "But when the truth-giving Spirit comes, He will unveil the reality of every truth within you. He won't speak on His own, but only what He hears from the Father, and He will reveal prophetically to you what is to come." (John 16:13 TPT)
The Lord promises to guide us into all truth, moving us through the well-crafted and manufactured reinterpretations of reality.
The Hypnotized and the Neutral
We are also seeing the evidence of those who have fallen victim to these manipulations and have been lulled into a state of spiritual slumber.
Across the board of culture and throughout the Church, there is a percentage of people who have been manipulated and hypnotized by the spirit of witchcraft. They only see a reality that has been prepared for them. This is a form of mind control, making them irrational, irate and willing to devise a plan against anyone who doesn't believe the way they do.
There is another percentage of those who simply choose to remain neutral. They want to keep the peace at any cost.
The hypnotized and neutral ones will fight the revelation of God's plan and those who announce it, thinking they are doing so for the cause of peace, even though it is a false peace. (Photo via Flickr)
To Those Who See Through the Veil
But there is a percentage of people who see through this veil of manipulation. They need to unify and help bring truth to culture with compassionate and courageous intervention. Now is the time to speak the truth in love across all streams of the Church; to create a movement of truth and clarity. This decision will carry a cost in our current relationships and affiliations.
No matter how dark or deep the spirit of censorship and control may appear, it will never be able to restrain the revelation of the truth.
If we want to fulfill God's purposes in our generation and have a Kingdom influence in the world that will bring about righteous change on our watch, then we must take a stand and unify around the algorithm of God's truth.
Nothing Can Block the Transmission of Truth
The Lord determines the algorithmic movement of His Spirit. No human system of control can ultimately block the transmission of truth. Referring to this freedom, Jesus described how truth moves through our world:
"The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can't tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can't explain how people are born of the Spirit." (John 3:8)
There are times when the truth will simply appear amid deception without any evidence of how it arrived. In that surprise, the equilibrium of deception is undone. We are living in surprising times. (Photo via Free PSV)
In Acts 2, on the Day of Pentecost, the wind of the Spirit suddenly swept through all the prohibitions of Jewish culture and the tyranny of Roman rule to manifest the will of the Father. Thousands raced to the sound of the Spirit to be forever changed. When the truth is revealed in our day, a similar in-gathering will take place.
Exposure - the By-Product of Truth
Exposure is the by-product of truth, and that exposure is what the restrainers of truth fear the most. The exposure of dark, algorithmic programming is increasing. This is taking place even as it seems Hell is accomplishing its goal without restraint. People's hunger for truth is increasing—releasing new levels of courage and hope. God's message of truth is unrestrainable, no matter what obstacles are placed in its way.
Don't lose heart. God has programmed His Church for an ultimate victory over darkness. His desire is that we all learn how to fully participate with Him and make a lasting difference in our world. As Paul wrote in Romans 8:4-5, may we be moved by the impulses of His Spirit, and be motivated to pursue the spiritual realities of God's truth.
