EDITORS NOTE: In light of the US Democratic Party’s plunge into far-left extremism and socialism ahead of the 2020 elections, we offer below the prophetic insights Dr. Thomas Horn first wrote in his 2013 international best-seller Zenith 2016 in which he foresaw the rise of American socialism as key to arrival of Antichrist.
It’s been assumed for centuries that a prerequisite for the coming of Antichrist would be a “revived” world order—an umbrella under which national boundaries dissolve and ethnic groups, ideologies, religions, and economics from around the world orchestrate a single and dominant sovereignty. At the head of the utopian administration, a single personality will surface. He will appear to be a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become “a king of fierce countenance” (Daniel 8:23). With imperious decree, he will facilitate a One-World Government, universal religion, and global socialism. Those who refuse his New World Order will inevitably be imprisoned or destroyed until at last he exalts himself “above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4).
For many years, the notion of an Orwellian society where government oversees the smallest details of our lives and in which human liberties are abandoned was considered anathema. The idea that rugged individualism would somehow be sacrificed for an anesthetized universal harmony was repudiated by America’s greatest minds. Then, in the 1970s, things began to change. Following a call by Nelson Rockefeller for the creation of a “New World Order,” presidential candidate Jimmy Carter campaigned, saying, “We must replace balance of power politics with world order politics.” This struck a chord with international leaders, including President George Herbert Walker Bush, who in the 1980s began championing the one-world dirge, announcing over national television that the time for a “New World Order” had arrived. The invasion into Kuwait by Iraq/Babylon provided perfect cover for allied forces to engage the Babylonian “prince” by launching Desert Storm against Saddam Hussein’s forces, an effort Bush made clear was “to forge for ourselves and for future generations a New World Order…in which a credible United Nations can use its…role to fulfill the promise and vision of the U.N.’s founders.” Following this initial statement, Bush addressed the Congress, adding:
What is at stake is more than one small country [Kuwait], it is a big idea—a New World Order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind.… Such is a world worthy of our struggle, and worthy of our children’s future…the long-held promise of a New World Order.[i]
Ever since the President’s astonishing newscast, the parade of political and religious leaders in the United States and abroad pushing for a New World Order has multiplied. Britain’s Prime Minister Tony Blair, in a speech delivered in Chicago, April 22, 1999, said frankly, “We are all internationalists now, whether we like it or not.” Blair could barely have imagined how quickly his doctrine would catch on. By December 9, 2008, respected chief foreign affairs columnist for The Financial Times, Gideon Rachman (who attended the 2003 and 2004 Bilderberg meetings at Versailles, France, and Stresa, Italy), admitted, “I have never believed that there is a secret United Nations plot to take over the U.S. I have never seen black helicopters hovering in the sky above Montana. But, for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible.” The United Kingdom’s Gordon Brown not only agreed, but in an article for The Sunday Times, March 1, 2009, said it was time “for all countries of the world” to renounce “protectionism” and to participate in a new “international” system of banking and regulations “to shape the twenty-first century as the first century of a truly global society.” On January 1, 2009, Mikhail Gorbachev, the former head of state of the USSR, said the global clamor for change and the election of Barack Obama was the catalyst that might finally convince the world of the need for global government. In an article for the International Herald Tribune, he said:
Throughout the world, there is a clamor for change. That desire was evident in November, in an event that could become both a symbol of this need for change and a real catalyst for that change. Given the special role the United States continues to play in the world, the election of Barack Obama could have consequences that go far beyond that country.…
If current ideas for reforming the world’s financial and economic institutions are consistently implemented, that would suggest we are finally beginning to understand the important of global governance.”
Four days later, on January 5, 2009, the chorus call for a New World Order was ramped up by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger while on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. A reporter for CNBC asked Kissinger what he thought Barack Obama’s first actions as president should be in light of the global financial crises. He answered, “I think that his task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period, when really a New World Order can be created.” Kissinger followed on January 13 with an opinion piece distributed by Tribune Media Services titled “The Chance for a New World Order.” Addressing the international financial crises inherited by Barack Obama, Kissinger discussed the need for an international political order (world government) to arise and govern a new international monetary and trade system. “The nadir of the existing international financial system coincides with simultaneous political crises around the globe,” he wrote. “The alternative to a new international order is chaos.” Kissinger went on to highlight Obama’s extraordinary impact on the “imagination of humanity,” calling it “an important element in shaping a New World Order.”[ii] Kissinger—a Rockefeller functionary and member of the Bilderberg group and Trilateral Commission who routinely turns up in lists among senior members of the Illuminati—peppered his article with key phrases from Masonic dogma, including the comment about the “alternative to a new international order is chaos,” a clear reference to “ordo ab chao” from ancient Craft Masonry, a reference to the doctrine of “order out of chaos.” Like the mythical phoenix firebird, Kissinger visualized the opportunity for a New World Order to be engineered from the ashes of current global chaos, exactly the point he had made years earlier at the Bilderberger meeting in Evian, France, on May 21, 1991, when describing how the world could be manipulated into willingly embracing global government. He said:
Today Americans would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by their world government.[iii]

During his second inaugural address, U.S. President George W. Bush likewise envisioned the specter of a Babylonian-like, one-world government. With an almost religious tone, he cited Masonic script, saying, “When our Founders declared a new order of the ages…they were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled.”[iv] New Age guru Benjamin Creme was clearer still on how the marriage of politics and religion would epitomize the New World Order when he said some years ago, “What is the plan? It includes the installation of a new world government and a new world religion under Maitreia” (Maitreia is a New Age “messiah”).[v] Five-time United States senator from Arizona and Republican presidential nominee in 1964, Barry Goldwater, likewise foresaw the union of politics and religion as a catalyst for global government. In writing of the efforts of behind-the-scenes groups, including international bankers, to bring about a New World Order, he said it would occur through consolidating “the four centers of power—political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical.” As the managers and creators of the new (prophetic) system, this power elite would “rule the future” of mankind, he believed.[vi] So concerned was Goldwater with the consolidation of government policy and religious creed that on September 16, 1981, he took the unique position of warning political preachers from the floor of the U.S. Senate that he would “fight them every step of the way if they [tried] to dictate their [religious ideas] to all Americans in the name of conservatism.” The increasing influence of the Religious Right on the Republican Party was bothersome to Goldwater in particular because of his libertarian views. It should have concerned theologians as well, and I say this as a man often associated with the Religious Right. Combining religious faith with politics as a legislative system of governance hearkens the formula upon which Antichrist will come to power. (Note how in the book of Revelation, chapter 13, the political figure of Antichrist derives ultra-national dominance from the world’s religious faithful through the influence of an ecclesiastical leader known as the False Prophet.) Neither Jesus nor His disciples (who turned the world upside down through preaching the gospel of Christ, the true “power of God,” according to Paul) ever imagined the goal of changing the world through supplanting secular government with an authoritarian theocracy. In fact, Jesus made it clear that His followers would not fight earthly authorities purely because His kingdom was “not of this world” (John 18:36). While every modern citizen—religious and non-religious—has responsibility to lobby for moral good, combining the mission of the church with political aspirations is not only unprecedented in New Testament theology—including the life of Christ and the pattern of the New Testament church—but, as Goldwater may have feared, a tragic scheme concocted by sinister forces to defer the church from its true power while enriching insincere bureaucrats, a disastrous fact that only now some are beginning to understand.
Behind these scenes and beyond view of the world’s uninitiated members, the alchemy and rituals of the occult masters—Illuminatists, Masons, Bonesmen, Bilderbergers, and Bohemians—have combined to harmonize so completely within recent U.S. foreign and domestic policies as to clearly point to a terrifying Sibyl’s conjure, a near-future horizon upon which a leader of indescribable brutality will appear. Although this false prince of peace will seem at first to hold unique answers to life’s most challenging questions, ultimately he will make the combined depravities of Antiochus Epiphanes, Hitler, Stalin, and Genghis Khan, all of whom were types of the Antichrist, look like child’s play. He will raise his fist, “speaking great things…in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven” (Revelation 13:5–6). He will champion worship of the “old gods” and “cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” (Revelation 13:15), and he will revive an ancient mystery religion that is “the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird” (Revelation 18:2).
Nevertheless, the world is readied—indeed, hungry for—a socialist political savior to arise now with a plan to deliver mankind from upheaval.
