Webster's defines "conspiracy" as follows:

Conspiracy - 1) a conspiring 2) and unlawful plot 3) a conspiring group
Conspire - [Latin com-, together + spirare, breathe] 1) to plan together secretly, esp. to commit a crime 2) to work together toward a single end

For our purposes we will use the term conspiracy to refer to "the secret plan of a small group to accomplish a single end."

Up to this point we have shown that the Hebrew words of "conspire" and "conspiracy" occurred on many occasions in the Old Testament, but, so far, we have only demonstrated these words as they apply to political plots to overthrow governments primarily by assassinating kings. There is at least one Old Testament example where a conspiracy is made against God himself. We find it in Psalm 83:3-5.

Psalm 83: 1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 They have taken crafty [06191] counsel [05475] against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5 For they have consulted [03289] together with one consent: they are confederate [01285] against thee: 6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; 7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
...17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

Psalm 83 is addressed to God. In verse 1 it starts out, "Keep not thou silence, O God." And in verse 5 it says to God, "they are confederate against thee." The use of these three Hebrew phrases ("crafty counsel, consulted together with one consent, confederate") paints a very clear picture for us. Men have gotten together to create a plan and have bound themselves together to accomplish this plan to wipe out Israel as a nation. This plan is considered to be a plot against God himself. And according to verse 6-8, this plot involves multiple nations.

While we believe this passage from Psalm 83 is very likely a prophecy of an end time plan against Israel by the neighboring nations, the context itself does not necessitate that conclusion. Psalm 83 may not prove the existence of a conspiracy in the end times, but it does prove one thing. Biblically speaking, there is such a thing as political conspiracy against God. In fact, from this passage we learn that according to scripture, any national or international plan designed to destroy Israel (or God's people) can be considered a plot, not only against them, but against God himself.

We will now take a look at some other passages from Psalms very similar to the one we have just looked at in Psalm 83. However, these passages further indicate not only the existence of a plot against God himself by the kings of the nations, but that the timeframe of this plot is during the end times.

Psalm 2: 1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision. 5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. 6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. 8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. 10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Here in Psalm 2 we find several interesting points. First, in verse 2, we find that kings and rulers of the earth have counseled together and set themselves against God. This perfectly parallels Psalm 83. Verse 3 even tells us that their plan is to throw off the reign of God.

Second, this passage is talking about the conditions on the earth at the time of Jesus' return. Verse 5 speaks of the wrath of God coming upon these conspiring kings. The "Day of Wrath" is a common phrase in both the Old and New Testaments used to describe the Battle of Armageddon and the surrounding events (Job 21:30 Proverbs 11:4 Zephaniah 1:15 Romans 2:5, 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:9, Revelation 6:16-17, Revelation 14:19, Revelation 19:15). Verse 6 expounds on verse 3. Verse 3 tells us that the kings and rulers wish to throw off God's rule over them. Verse 6 tells us more specifically that God is setting his king, the Messiah, as ruler in Zion and he will now rule the nations with an iron rod (verse 9).

And this is also perfectly parallel to Revelation 19. Revelation 19 describes the end time battle of Armageddon where kings and their armies have gathered around Israel and are defeated by the returning Christ. We know from both Revelation 12:5 and Revelation 19:15 (as well as Daniel 2:44-45) that Jesus' rule with an iron rod will be initiated at the Battle of Armageddon on the Day of the Lord during what is prophetically referred to as the end times.

So, here in Psalm 2 we find the kings and rulers of the earth taking counsel and binding themselves together against God, just as in Psalm 83. And, this time, we find that these events occur when Christ returns to establish his kingdom here upon the earth. And again in Psalm 110, we find similar imagery.

Psalm 110: 1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. 4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. 5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. 6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. 7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

Here we see that the Psalmist is speaking of "a rod" coming "out of Zion" to establish God's "rule...in the midst of [his] enemies." This is extremely similar to Psalm 2 (and Revelation 12:5, 19:15, Daniel 2:44-45) where we also saw a rod of iron with which God's king would reign from Zion, ruling the nations. And here again we also see the "Day of Wrath" mentioned along with the fact that the coming king will destroy the rebellious kings on that day.

These 3 passages together not only demonstrate the continuity within Psalms on this particular topic, but they also demonstrate a conspiracy made by the kings of the earth to destroy Israel (God's people) and resist the returning Christ as he comes to establish his kingdom with Israel as the head of nations in the end times. And all of this is also depicted in the end time book of Daniel, where we see the very same things underway.

Daniel 9: 27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Daniel 11: 21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries. 22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. 23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people. 24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.

Daniel 11: 37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. 39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

Here in Daniel, we see that the antichrist figure is described several times as forming a covenant or league and as obtaining his kingdom through flatteries (or intrigue.) We should also note that he becomes strong with only a small group of people (Daniel 11:23). And we should also remember Daniel 11:37 for later on in the study. Daniel 11:37 states that the antichrist will magnify himself above all gods. A little further in the study we will show that this is consistent with the words of Paul who taught that the antichrist will exalt himself above all that is called god (a practice which is consistent with the Gnostic mystery religions of John and Paul's day.)

From Daniel and Psalms we have shown that there will be a conspiracy against God in the last days before the return of Christ. This is consistent with the events described in the Book of Revelation chapter 17 and 18 as well. After a brief summary, we will then turn our attention to demonstrating the lengthy existence of this conspiracy for centuries prior to the final 7 years of human history.
