What is the Matrix?

“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to search it out.” (Proverbs 25:2; BSB)

The atheist, the agnostic and the devout religious alike; each and every one of us must at some point come to address these universal questions – Why are we here? How did we get here? What is the meaning of life? Is it possible there is a grander celestial purpose to our lives than the limited scope of feel-good Christian theology being taught by modern churches? Are the various Christian religions being broadcast on radio and television the direct and uncompromised testimony of Christ? Why are there so many divisions in our Christian churches? Which denomination should I attend as a new believer? Do all the denominations preach the same message? How do we witness a true Christian faith to the atheist, agnostic, and other popular religious? Who exactly is this Christ, and what were his true intentions? So many questions at so great a cost for the wrong answers.

Think about our lives in the modern world. What has modern life succumb to in all its luxuries? We possess such great comforts in the first world nations yet still seem to find the time to bicker and argue about our lack of freedoms, possessions, and the often-harsh social injustices being forced upon us. Have we become complacent while capitulating to the modern woe-is-me

The Christian procurators of the modern world no longer need to toil and till the ground or hunt their own food to be nourished. Large meals for the whole family are only a phone call away.

In the winter, our toes can get chilly while sitting comfortably on the couch. No problem. The stove or furnace in our homes can reset the temperature to whatever level we desire.

Has it become too hot or too humid on a sunny summer’s day in the area where you live? Blast the air conditioner or swamp cooler for a few minutes. Problem solved.

Have you ever broken a bone playing sports, acting foolish, or injured by accident? Fret not. A mobile medical unit can pick you up and drive you to the nearest hospital where your bones can easily be reset by a professional physician. In times past, a broken bone was practically a death sentence. Infection, fever, and death were often inevitable with certain types of injuries.

Woe, woe, woe are our first-world problems in an age of mounting technological advancements.

For many of us, the modern meaning of life is to work toward retirement. For others, our daily lives revolve around allowing the government to handle our finances through social welfare and subsidy programs. But whether we work thirty to sixty hours a week or receive everything for free, more often than not the result is the same. We sit at home gazing endlessly at a screen force-feeding propaganda into our sub-conscious minds through stories of entertainment and corporate news juggernauts. All the while, stuffing our faces with a seemingly endless supply of processed food often lacking in organic nutrition, which then inevitably leads to an endless array of self-inflicted illnesses.

And now, since the advent of television, the majority of earth’s population have come to believe our lives should be totally encompassed by these so-called news stories; social media, entertainment, the latest gadget, technology, pop-culture personality, or pleasure. All of which is pushing borderline idolatry while instructing us to seek a pride for this life Christ warns us to avoid. Why are so many souls willing to put up with this? Why do we plant our faces in these devices day after day often believing the propaganda, mimicking the forced societal behaviors, and entertaining these spiritual deceptions?

Have you ever noticed how the creators of the Hollywood blockbuster movies implant subliminal messaging directly into the heart of the characters?

Think about the original trilogy, The Matrix. If you were asked to describe The Matrix to a person who had never seen the movie, how would you tell the story? Perhaps you could unfold the narrative of how Trinity and Morpheus freed Neo from the clutches of a false reality. Or how all souls are being enslaved by an evil group of entities capable of traveling supernaturally at will in the blink of an eye performing inhuman feats of strength, miracles, signs and wonders. That could be a fitting analogy. But what is more interesting than using The Matrix as a fictional parallel to describe this world of machinations in which we live, is the fact that the bible does indeed give mention to the “matrix” – by name. Coincidentally, much like The Matrix trilogy, the bible is also referring to a world being pulled over our eyes. Similar in part, but so very different when given closer scrutiny.

Earlier versions of the bible including the King James Bible use the word “matrix” or variations in the spelling of the word from the old English dialect such as “matryce”, and “matrice”. We see this in Exodus chapters 13:12-15; 34:19 and Numbers 3:12; 18:15. We know how Hollywood portrays The Martix. But how does the bible explain this mystery? Well, the word “matrix” is only used when referring to the female womb …how very interesting. In the bible, the portal from which life is brought into this fallen world is introduced to us as “the matrix”.

““7358 {26x} rechem, rekh’-em; from 7355; the womb [comp. 7356]:
– womb {21x}, matrix {5x}. Rechem, as a noun, means “bowels;
womb; mercy.” The first use of rechem is in its primary meaning of
womb”. (emphasis mine throughout) [1]
“7355 {47x} racham, raw-kham’; a prim. Root; to fondle; by
impl. To love, espec. to be compassionate: – mercy {32x}, compassion
{8x}, pity {3x}, love {1x}, merciful {1x}, Ruhamah {1x}, surely
{1x}. Racham, the verb, means “to have compassion, be merciful, pity”
“7356 {44x} racham, rakh’-am; from 7355; compassions (in the
plural); by extens. the womb (as cherishing the fetus); by implication
a maiden: – mercy {30x}, compassion {4x}, womb {4x}, bowels
{2x}, pity {2x}, damsel {1x}, tender love {1x}. Racham expresses a
deep and tender feeling of compassion, such as is aroused by the
sight of weakness or suffering in those who are deer to us or in
need of our help.”

This word “matrix”, which in the Hebrew tongue is rechem (womb) comes from its Hebrew derivative, racham which means; love, compassion, mercy – to have pity on or cherish a loved one who is week and suffering. The meaning of the womb (the matrix) most accurately resembles an act of mercy.

Okay…? A person should ask, why is the process of a spirit supernaturally entering the mother’s womb, and later, entering into this world explained as an act of compassion, mercy, and pity? What could this possibly mean?

Why would God (in the original Hebrew language) refer to the mother’s womb as a matrix in which those who are “in need of our help” will be receiving “mercy”? Shouldn’t it go without saying that a new born baby requires help from the parents? Why is there so much emphasis on the Hebrew word rechem (matrix: the womb) being an act of mercy? In the movie, the term “matrix” is used to describe a false world being pulled over our eyes for the purpose of keeping us from knowing the truth. In reality, this is not entirely false. But who is to blame for hiding this ultimate truth in the first place? Is it God the Father? In the movie, when you leave the matrix you are born into the “real world” – a place where those who were deceived by their creator have been awakened from their sleep and now live in the “real world” in a place called “the city of Zion”. In the movie, Zion exists deep beneath the earth (a traditional folklore setting for Hell).

In the movie, the good guys are fighting against the evil creator of “the Matrix”.

On the contrary…

In the bible, Zion is the holy mount of God. Zion is explained as a heavenly city – the new Jerusalem (Hebrews 12:22; Isaiah 8:18; 24:23; 28:16; Revelation 14:1; Joel 2:32) – not a city cast into the bowels of the earth. In the bible, the term “matrix” is used to describe our entrance into this world via mercy through the womb. Not an oppressive false reality of an evil creator’s rule. In the bible, we are not born into the “real world”. We are born into a temporary world where all souls have been deceived by Satan.

In the bible, earth is a domain where Satan (not Jesus Christ or the Father) is the temporary prince of this world (John 12:31; 14:30; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 2:2). In the bible, the creator of “the Matrix” is the only source of love and truth in all the universe.

Hollywood’s version of The Matrix is an exact opposite of what the bible reveals the matrix to be. The life we are now living is not the real world as it is in the movies. In this life, we are all destined to die and either receive judgement (Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:11-15), or salvation into eternal life (John 3:16). The next life is the “real world”. We are only hear in this world for a very brief moment of time.

Satan has always sought to deceive the children of God, both man and angel. This manipulation of the truth created in part by Hollywood elites is yet another means for Satan to achieve his purpose of deception in the modern “real world”.

The Matrix trilogy unravels the plot of how there exists an almighty powerful ‘Creator’ being who has pulled the wool over our eyes.

In the movie, the Creator of “the matrix” is the evil villain.

In the movie, the evil Creator villain refers to himself as “the Father” and “God” where the all-knowing “Oracle” is the “mother God”.

In the movie, Neo (the savior of mankind) finally defeats the Evil Creator Father God and becomes the sun god himself at the end of the trilogy. Coincidence? Most certainly not. That is how Satan sees himself. A savior who will overthrow the throne of the Evil Creator Father God.

So, Hollywood made another movie. Why make such a fuss? The plot behind The Matrix is only a work of fiction, right? There is not really an evil spiritual force seeking to pull the wool over our eyes, right? Satan doesn’t really want our assistance in dethroning the creator of heaven and earth, right? Satan doesn’t exist in reality, right?

What would you say if I told you, you can know the truth? You can understand very easily the meaning of life on this planet and the purpose for the creation of the universe.

What would you say if I told you, the bible clearly and unobjectionably states the human race existed before the womb/matrix was created?

What would you say if I told you, the reason we are all living in this spiritually deceived existence is the result of mankind’s disobedience to our Creator in a former angelic state?

In this chapter, we will be cross-referencing three underlining biblical themes attempting to explain this fundamental paradigm. The first being mankind’s mortality (human nature) and nothing more. The second being mankind’s angelic origins. The third being an intermingling of the first two. By the end of this chapter, you will have the scriptural evidence to make the decision for yourself.

As difficult as it will be for many Christians to except this biblical reality having been brain washed by modern Christian pop-culture, this chapter will explain in detail and ask pertinent questions relevant to understanding exactly what the bible has been teaching us all along. This understanding is found clearly in the scriptures, as you will see. And yet, it is being completely ignored or distorted by modern Christianity. Namely, when preachers teach brief passages from Paul’s letters (Romans 5 and 1 Corinthians 15) while ignoring virtually the entire bible in context with the same subject matter.

And much, much more.
