Athaliah Expelled from the Temple by Antoine Coypel (April 11, 1661 – January 7, 1722)

The True King Will Depose All Usurpers

by Rolaant McKenzie

Clive Staples Lewis (November 29, 1898 - November 22, 1963) was a British writer, literary scholar, and Anglican lay theologian. He was the author of numerous works of fiction and non-fiction, including Christian apologetics.

Lewis was a close friend of J.R.R. Tolkien, famed author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and credited his influence in helping him return to his Christian faith after a period of professed atheism from his teenage years.

One of Lewis' best-known works was The Chronicles of Narnia, a series of epic fantasy novels for children published between 1950 and 1956. It describes the realm of Narnia as a place of magic, mythical beasts, and talking animals. It portrays the adventures of various children during different periods of time magically transported from the real world into this realm by the lion Aslan (a figure of Jesus) to save Narnia from a present evil threatening it. This series has been adapted for radio, television, the stage, film and even video games.

The first book published in this series, and likely the best known, was The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (1950). It tells the story of four English sibling children, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie, who are magically transported to Narnia via a wardrobe in a large country house where they were staying during the Blitz of 1940.

Narnia is ruled by the White Witch, who calls herself the Queen of Narnia. However, she is not the legitimate ruler of Narnia. Her despotic reign of terror was not only over the people, but extended to the land itself. Through her dark magic, she covered the once beautiful and green land of Narnia with a perpetual blanket of snow. For about a century, she made it "always winter, but never Christmas," representing her evil rule that stole joy and hope from the residents of Narnia.

Despite her seemingly unbreakable rule, the White Witch lived in dread of a prophecy that her rule would come to an end when "two Sons of Adam and two Daughters of Eve" sit on the four thrones of Cair Paravel, the royal castle, now an empty derelict.

When the Pevensie children arrived in Narnia, the White Witch did all she could to kill one or all of them to prevent the fulfilment of the prophecy. As the children escaped from her grasp and into the wilderness, they noticed the snow starting to melt. They took it as a sign of the White Witch's diminishing power. As if to confirm this, Father Christmas (who had been kept out of Narnia by the Witch's magic) appeared and gave gifts to them needed for the final conflict ahead.

Just before the last battle, Aslan sacrifices his life for Edmund, who was guilty of treachery. But later he rose from the dead to thoroughly destroy the White Witch and her army in the final conflict, and crown at Cair Paravel the Pevensie children as the rightful rulers of Narnia, bringing in a golden age of peace, joy, and prosperity.

The one-year reign of King Ahaziah (841 BC) of the Kingdom of Judah ended during a courtesy visit to King Joram (852-841 BC) of the Kingdom of Israel, who was recovering from injuries received in battle with the Arameans (2 Kings 9). One of the captains of King Joram's army, Jehu (841-814 BC), staged a coup d'état and assassinated both kings as he took the throne of Israel.

Athaliah (841-835 BC), mother of Ahaziah, upon hearing of the death of her son seized power in the Kingdom of Judah to rule as its only queen (2 Kings 11; 2 Chronicles 22:10-12, 23:1-21).

According to common practice in ancient times and up to the present day, rulers seeking to consolidate their hold on power would eliminate any potential rivals. Close relatives, family of the previous ruler, and their associates were not exempt from being imprisoned, exiled, or killed.

Athaliah followed this course by murdering the royal family. She even sought the life of the sole surviving heir to the throne, her one-year-old grandson, Joash. But Jehosheba, Ahaziah's sister and wife of the chief priest, Jehoiada, secreted him to the Temple. During Athaliah's bloody reign of terror, she sought to turn the people of Judah away from the Lord to the worship of Baal.

Jehoiada secretly protected and raised Joash, and when six years had passed, revealed him to the people and crowned him king of Judah. Much to her surprise that Joash had survived her purge, and dismay that her usurped rule was at an end, she vainly tried to stop the rebellion against her. But she was seized, and the sword she used against her own family was visited on her.

The people of Judah rejoiced that Athaliah was slain, and the rightful ruler was on his throne. They also tore down the temple to Baal, its idols, and altars, and put to death the priest of Baal. Finally, Jehoiada made a covenant between the Lord God of Israel, the king, and the people that they would serve the Lord.

Satan is described in the Bible as the god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:1-4), and with his lieutenants (Ephesians 6:10-17), he usurps rulership over the earth. He hates humanity because human beings are made in the image of God, and so he seeks their destruction, even those he has deceived and granted great wealth and power to extend evil in the world.

BlackRock is the world's largest money investment manager. It controls about $20 trillion, which allows the multinational firm immense influence or control over most major corporations, governments, and other organizations around the world.

BlackRock imposes a social credit metric for corporations called the ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) score. According to Chairman and CEO Larry Fink in a 2017 New York Times interview, this is to "force behaviors" of companies to comply with promoting their preferred methods of organizational recruitment. This form of pressure or coercion extends to promoting the sexual grooming and mutilation of children, infanticide, euthanasia, austerity through climate change policies, war, and other efforts that lead to depopulation.

Captured on hidden video in June 2023 by an undercover female reporter for the O'Keefe Media Group, Serge Varlay, a technology recruiter for BlackRock, boasted about his power over individuals and the firm's ability to dominate people and decide their fates, particularly through buying politicians, media control, stock manipulation, war, and the destruction of food production.

The devil especially sees Christians as a threat to his rule, so through his minions and the organizations they manage, he does all he can to eliminate them. But just as Jehoiada the high priest stood between the Athaliah and Joash to save his life and establish him as the rightful ruler of Judah, Jesus as the High Priest (1 Timothy 2:5-6; Hebrews 7) and only Mediator between God and man saves all who trust in Him from the wrath of God for our sins and the destructive intentions of the devil.

As Aslan protected and redeemed the rightful rulers of Narnia and vanquished the illegitimate queen, Jesus came to this lost world, suffered, and died for sinners, rose again from the dead, and ensured the end of Satan's usurped rule and the permanent establishment of His kingdom (1 John 3:8).

The assumed rule of global elites and their organizations such as BlackRock, the World Economic Forum, United Nations, Bilderberg Group, and the World Health Organization will not last.

The true KING of kings and LORD of lords, Jesus Christ, will depose all the usurpers of the world to establish His rule, which will be a golden age that will never end (Daniel 2:40-44; Revelation 19:11-21, 21:1-27).

Do not be a servant of a kingdom that cannot last. Believe the gospel of Jesus Christ and be a child of God in His eternal kingdom.
