DESECRATION, page 322, shows the Christian character, Chang (of whom we
remember is already marked with Antichrist's mark) confess his allegiance to
Antichrist! Of course this is not how it was presented in the storyline,
but this is what Chang actually did.
The reader was set up to agree with the notion that
Chang did not actually deny the Lord Jesus Christ before men by a twist brought
to the story before Chang was even questioned with the polygraph software.
This "setting up" up was done back on page 317 when Chang pinned the lapel microphone to his shirt, praying
key, he knew, was how the questions were worded. In his mind, a mole was an
animal; he was a human being. If the questions were too specific and
unequivocal, he'd be in trouble.
Now the reader is introduced to the idea that if the wording was not specific
would be possible for Chang to pass this polygraph test. Let us remember this polygraph software would have to be
very sophisticated, and able to detect the degree of nervousness that is
consistent with feelings of guilt on the part of the person being interviewed.
The specific question Chang was given first was:
"Are you loyal to
the supreme potentate?" Desecration pg. 322 Now this looks like a non-specific
question at first glance because indeed the phrase "supreme potentate" could mean
different things to different people but not in the situation in which
Chang was asked this question.
The circumstances in which Chang was asked this question made it very
clear to him (and the reader!) just exactly WHO the phrase "supreme
potentate" referred to and that who was Antichrist! Chang and his
interrogator knew the question was specifically asked to determine if he was
truly loyal to Antichrist. The reader was set up to think that
"supreme potentate" was not specific wording, when it was the actual
name that was used in the palace and the world to refer to Antichrist, most
importantly Chang knew this referred to Antichrist.
Chang closed his eyes and reminded himself
that Jesus Christ was the only person who fit that description.
"Yes," he said.
Chang was even asked if the "supreme potentate" had risen from the
dead and was the living lord: "Is the supreme potentate risen from
the dead and the living lord?" "Yes." This is
outright blasphemy for a Christian to say "Yes" to questions that
attribute to Antichrist the qualities of the Lord Jesus Christ! We are
supposed to believe that affirming Antichrist as being God is serving the
"cause," correct? Which cause may that be?
This a way to steer the reader
into "going along with the program' when the New World Order (Kingdom of
Antichrist) is implemented. As long as the Christian makes it look like
he is merging
with the New World Order and the One World Leader (Antichrist) then he will be
able to save his own life in this world and still find it!
