Information Warfare: A Contest of Wills

a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.  Ecclesiastes 3:8

The battle between truth versus fake is prominently playing out before our eyes these days. What you need to know is that all information right now is militarized and weaponized. Information operations (IO) has gone through a number of doctrinal evolutions. 

BOTTOM LINE:  Right now we are seeing a fundamental a contest of wills between God,  His Host followers and the spirit of anti-Christ engaged in fierce combat.  You need a personal relationship with Jesus and you need His seal of protection referred to many times in Scripture, as well as the whole armor of God be successful in this engagement.

God's Truth

You also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession.  Ephesians 1:13-14

In some sense when God created creation He stamped (sealed) with His Name, His truth, visible to anyone who looks with an unjaundiced eye.  Of course, God's truth is way above our simple understanding. To understand the phrase properly, we’ll have to see what we mean by God’s Truth, by human truth, and how to bring them together.

God’s Truth becoming dominant is the same as declaring God’s kingship. Truth is the expression of God’s full and majestic Presence on earth.

Biblical Truth is more than words. Animosity, baseless hatred and participation in gossip-mongering are a form of falsehood.  We are told in Scripture that God is truth and we are admonished to distance ourselves from falsehood, it is permissible to lie for the sake of peace.  Not to practice a lie but to save a life we see a biblical principle.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.    Matthew 5:9

Peace itself is a form of truth, and strife is a form of falsehood. When we speak with the goal of avoiding strife, we are preserving truth and rejecting falsehood.

Hybrid Truth 

Our human attempts to imitate a Divine trait of Truth have value, even as we realize that we can never achieve the full measure of it. Though through the pages of the inspired Word of God provides us access to Truth, helping us to walk out being created in the Divine Image of God.

The human faculty of speech allows for truths and for Truths, for lies and for Lies, and sits on the borderline between actions and thoughts.  As we speak, we need to weigh, as much as possible, whether what we are saying is True, is true, is false, or is false in a way that contributes to a larger truth.  If we do better at this, we can hope we are esteeming our Lord and that His Truth gains momentum.

Herein is an interesting Midrash which is like an allegorical story that is even making me think more deeply:

There is a Midrash about the debate in heaven before creating humans. Kindness was in favor of creating us, because we are very kind. Truth was opposed, because we all lie (this is the second source we saw today that assumed that it is easier for people to be kind than to be truthful).

In the Midrash, God casts truth down, so that it will spring out of the earth (as it says in Psalms 85;12, emet me-eretz titsmach, the truth shall sprout from the Earth).  I think the easiest reading is that God put truth on earth to ease the process of us finding it, mitigating Truth’s objection to creating humans. One commentator says that it means that God decided that truth would be decided by the truth of the earth, meaning the truth that human beings articulated. 

This makes sense when we think that we were created from the dust of the earth with God breathing into us the breath of life and I would say speech.  As we follow our Father in Heaven who created everything by His utterances, so too, we have great power for good or for bad with our words.  I find this provocative to contemplate because it appears to be around the same time that Lucifer was cast down during the angelic rebellion.

There is objective Truth, there is human truth, and there is the combination of the two and that calls for discernment in these days.

Age of Combat

Bearing the Seal of God, your armor, the blood of the Lamb, His testimony in your life, and loving not your life unto death you are ready for the prophetic times of Revelation.  When you bear His seal you are stamped with His private mark (from the Greek) in the interest of keeping something secret, protecting, or preserving the sealed one.  Now you are ready for combat.

Brace yourselves and steel yourselves for war.  I know, I eyes kind of glaze over also with military-eze, but you need to hear the words straight out of the horses mouth, so to speak.  If I did not think it critical for you to understand, I would banish it to my dusty document folder.  This is the machine behind all of the FakeNews and outright lies we are hearing from government reports to data used to divinate your future.

Combat power is the total means of destructive, constructive, and information capabilities that a military unit or formation can apply at a given time All information whether it be news, data, or informational elements are ordered exclusively to gain an operational advantage over an enemy or adversary. These effects are intended to influence, disrupt, corrupt or usurp enemy or adversary decision making and everything that enables it, while enabling and protecting friendly decision making. 

BOTTOM LINE: This means that all information and data is being manipulated, like a chess game.  This comes from the Information Operations (IO) Field Manual

Information Operations

The information environment is the aggregate of individuals, organizations, and systems that collect, process, disseminate, or act on information while the operational environment is a composite of the conditions, circumstances, and influences that affect the employment of capabilities and bear on the decisions. 

BOTTOM LINE:  All systems that use information are being merged into a composite synthetic environment (AI) to influence circumstances, conditions, and decisions.  Healthcare, banking, media, welfare, insurance is all part of the information environment.  Information Operations (IO) Field Manual

Evoking Anarchy

Across the globe, information is increasingly available in near-real time. The ability to access this information, from anywhere, at any time, broadens and accelerates human interaction, across multiple levels (person to person, person to organization, person to government, government to government). Social media, in particular, enables the swift mobilization of people and resources around ideas and causes, even before they are fully understood. Disinformation and propaganda create malign narratives that can propagate quickly and instill an array of emotions and behaviors from anarchy to focused violence Information Operations (IO) Field Manual

One Domain

The information environment is not separate or distinct from the operational environment but inextricably part of it. In fact, any activity that occurs in the information environment simultaneously occurs in and affects one or more of the operational environment domains. Information Operations (IO) Field Manual

BOTTOM LINE: The information and operational environment are joined and operate as one.

Connecting the Dots


The information environment is comprised of three dimensions: physical, informational, and cognitive. Within the physical dimension of the information environment is the connective infrastructure that supports the transmission, reception, and storage of information. Also within this dimension are tangible actions or events that transmit a message in and of themselves, such as patrols, aerial reconnaissance, and civil affairs projects. Within the informational dimension is the content or data itself. The informational dimension refers to content and flow of information, such as text or images, or data that staffs can collect, process, store, disseminate, and display. 

 Information Operations (IO) Field Manual

BOTTOM LINE:  A connective infrastructure is being constructed between your brain, data & information, and the environment.  This is a controlled pipeline. 

Who are the targets?

The informational dimension provides the necessary link between the physical and cognitive dimensions. Within the cognitive dimension are the minds of those who are affected by and act upon information. These minds range from friendly commanders and leaders, to foreign audiences affecting or being affected by operations, to enemy, threat or adversarial decision makers. This dimension focuses on the societal, cultural, religious, and historical contexts that influence the perceptions of those producing the information and of the targets and audiences receiving the information. In this dimension, decision makers and target audiences are most prone to influence and perception management.  Information Operations (IO) Field Manual

BOTTOM LINE:  That giant sucking sound are the decision-makers target and influencing your every thought, emotion, and action attempting to drag your soul to hell.

US Military Does Engage in Info Warfare

Information Operations is the integrated employment, during military operations, of information-related capabilities in concert with other lines of operation to influence, disrupt, corrupt, or usurp the decision-making of adversaries and potential adversaries while protecting our own. Information Operations (IO) Field Manual

BOTTOM LINE:  I think the absolute most of our military but are they actors in the information war, you betcha!

Complex Interconnected Web of Evil

The information environment has increased in complexity. Lines of operations connect a series of decisive points that lead to control of a geographic or force-oriented objective. A line of effort is a line that links multiple tasks using the logic of purpose rather than geographical reference to focus efforts toward establishing operational and strategic conditionsInformation Operations (IO) Field Manual

BOTTOM LINE:  Lay lines of operation for global tasks have netted the earth in a complex matrix of evil.

Shock and Awe

IO seeks to create specific effects at a specific time and place.  Predominantly, these effects occur in and through the information environment. Immediate effects (disrupt, corrupt, usurp) are possible in the information environment’s physical and informational dimensions through the denial, degradation, or destruction of adversarial or enemy information-related capabilities. However, effects in the cognitive dimension (influence) take longer to manifest. It is these cognitive effects—as witnessed through changed behavior—that matter most to achieving decisive outcomes.

People therefore must be influenced in some fashion to acquiesce or surrender to or otherwise [to global] objectives by aligning their actions in concert with commanders’ intent.

BOTTOM LINE:  You must acquiesce or surrender to the power of AI or be prepared to loose your life which is precisely what the Bible foretold by the prophets and men of inspiration.

Command and Control Everything

Affecting enemy and adversary decision making necessitates affecting all contributing factors that enable it. These factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Command and control systems, as well as other systems that facilitate decision making.
  • Communications systems.
  • Information content (words, images, symbols).
  • Staffs, advisors, counselors, and confidants.
  • Human networks and constituencies that influence the decision maker and to whom the decision-maker seeks to influence; in other words, all relevant audiences in the areas of operations and interest.


This barely touches the surface of the military documents on information warfare but hopefully it provides you a taste of what is contained in them, in a biblical context.

He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.  Matthew 16:  15-19

God laid the foundation of the church which includes faith and trust in Jesus and departing from sin.  We are the temple of the Living God and so we should be a purified vessel by His blood. 

On Him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.  John 6:27 

What a comfort is to know in these days of battle that you, as God’s child is sealed, secure, and sustained amid the wickedness of this transitory world.
