What is one to do then, when the promptings via counsel #1 oppose the request of counsel #2? What if one's knowledge of agendas past and present, plus the clear and convincing voice of the Spirit requires one to refuse to honor or support the dictates and mandates of combined world powers?
Some may scoff at an alleged double bind or at resistance to seemingly innocuous actions of purported protection and good citizenry, YET for others, these are not small actions of either protection or good global citizenry. They present as actions that sustain and further agendas of manufactured fear, division, distrust, alienation, isolation, pscience3 fraud, coercion, scapegoating, bullying, mass psychosis,4 and tyranny — a slippery slope of increasing compliance, complicity, and destruction of values, rights, and freedoms.
So how to make sense of all this? It takes me back to a Déjà Vu post from November 2010 — to the story of a young prophet5 — to JST 1 Kings 13. There an old prophet counsels a young prophet to do something the Spirit of God has counselled against. Perhaps it is time to revisit that story and post.
Note: I am not implying conscious purpose or direction concerning the current president or presidency. I have no way of knowing. Rather, JST 1 Kings 13 is the story of a young prophet being tested in perhaps the most challenging way possible. If there is any analogy, it may be about us navigating these latter-days.
2. Double bind: a psychological predicament in which a person receives from a single source conflicting messages that allow no appropriate response to be made. from https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/double%20bind
A double bind is a dilemma in communication in which an individual (or group) receives two or more conflicting messages, with one negating the other. In some circumstances (particularly families and relationships) this might be emotionally distressing. This creates a situation in which a successful response to one message results in a failed response to the other (and vice versa), so that the person will automatically be wrong regardless of response. The double bind occurs when the person cannot confront the inherent dilemma, and therefore can neither resolve it nor opt out of the situation. Double bind theory was first described by Gregory Bateson and his colleagues in the 1950s, in a theory on the origins of schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Double binds are often utilized as a form of control without open coercion—the use of confusion makes them difficult both to respond to and to resist.:271–278
A double bind generally includes different levels of abstraction in the order of messages and these messages can either be stated explicitly or implicitly within the context of the situation, or they can be conveyed by tone of voice or body language. Further complications arise when frequent double binds are part of an ongoing relationship to which the person or group is committed.

3. Pscience is based, not on facts, observations, method, experiment, and truth, but on agendas sustaining the pursuit and protection of power, gain, glory, and domination.
5. And are we not all supposed to be prophets for our own lives?
Old Testament | Joel 2:28 ~ And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
