COMING OF ANTICHRIST—PART 7: Rise of Global Government

Share this!

Satanic rage, in our view, exploded following the presidential election of 2016 in America. Never in the history of the nation had there been an all-out effort to destroy a presidency. The effort was clear from the very outset—even before the inauguration took place in January 2017.

The United States was clearly on track to having its sovereignty dissolved in order to meld with the burgeoning internationalist blueprint for a changed world order. A new president declared he planned to “drain the swamp” and “Make America great again.” Draining the swamp meant removing entrenched bureaucrats who wanted the nation to continue down the road toward globalism. Making America great again meant that the new president wanted to bring the country to the full achievement capacity he saw as still within America’s people.

We saw the development of the term “deep state,” the name given the cabal within the US government and other governments of the world devoted to creating a one-world system of control. Although this term and the considerations behind it are called conspiratorial lunacy and even worse, the evidence that the deep state exists is indelibly etched within the fabric of geopolitics.

America’s intelligence agencies—FBI, CIA, NSA, and others—in conjunction with a political party in opposition to the newly elected president, were caught in efforts to falsely accuse him in order to, we charge, achieve a coup d’état. The mainstream news—networks and cable outlets that are supposed to report, not create, the news—joined in to try to bring President Donald J. Trump down.

The effort continues to the time of this writing. We remember the “Russian collusion” charges against him. They boiled that charge into an impeachment that had at its base nothing but overtly manifested hatred at its core. It failed in every respect, and the president emerged more popular and stronger than ever, especially with his staunch supporter base.

The coup, although a silent one, continues—and, again, in our opinion, the COVID-19 or coronavirus pandemic was and is being used to try to accomplish what their lies, false accusations, and other evil machinations couldn’t. Still, all the nefarious doings by these internationalist cabalists are not the main diabolists at the heart of the attempt to remove this president and bring globalism back to its state of progress prior to his election. A much more powerful evil festers at the heart of the rage and it’s wrapped up in the Apostle Paul’s words of alert and warning:

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)

Dictatorships throughout history have made it their all-consuming purpose to control the masses in their death-dealing grip that tightens at every opportunity. Without exception, tyrants begin regime-building with promises directed at individual citizens, assuring life better than before—usually declaring that prestige and powerful influence will be restored to the homeland. Safety and security will remove all fear from daily life, and peace will prevail under the leadership of the yet-to-be-unveiled tyrant’s absolute rule.

Despots vault to their position of power when vigilance against such evil diminishes during times of deepening, seemingly unsolvable, economic hardship.

We look around at the tremendous damage the COVID-19 pandemic has done to the economic situation in America and the world and think how bad things might eventuate as a result. Such devastation is coming upon the world that the so-called pandemic’s destruction will look mild by comparison. That which is coming will be a time of hardship, the depths of which humanity has never experienced. We can say this with certainty because the greatest of all prophets, Jesus Christ, foretold the following about that time: “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

Just as the times will be the worst in human history, as we’ve seen, so a tyrant of unprecedented evil will come forth, wielding the most dictatorial power ever. As mentioned, human government has always sought ever-increasing authority—more and more power that is held by a circle of as few elite oligarchs as possible. These construct ever more restrictive rules and regulations and increasingly draconian methods of keeping their victims under control.

The United States has enjoyed more than two centuries of relative freedom from this kind of government that has afflicted the nations and empires down through history. Still, there has been a growing trend toward such government in America. Humanistic infection has now set in, and this greatest experiment in liberty that has ever been attempted is in the throes of decline.

As mentioned in the “deep state” references, there are forces that desire to bring this once-great republic down so that the way will be clear for those who want such change to reshape the entire world in the evil ways they imagine. These forces are constituted by both human and supernatural entities. Again, let’s examine Paul’s words to understand the threat:

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)

Satan’s supernatural minions rule the minds of fallen mankind—people of the mindset to establish worldwide control over everyone else. We see this malevolent force at work through never-ceasing attempts by the so-called progressive ideology to change America into a nation far from the principles applied by the founding fathers. Their chief human allies are mainstream media. But their unseen and much more influential allies are the powers and principalities of Ephesians 6:12—spiritual cronies who truly bring the power to make changes in ways contrary to God’s.

That supernatural wrestling match has had a profound effect on the nonbelieving world. Those who don’t know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior fall prey to the minions, both human and spiritual, who make up the principalities and powers about which Paul forewarns. The following research makes manifest the deluding influence that’s especially on the youth of this generation:

Current voters may reject the globalist agenda, but according to several surveys, future voters don’t. Globally, the Millennials (those born between 1981 and 1996) outnumber both the Baby Boomers and Generation X, and they believe the concept of being a citizen of a single country is outdated. To them, global citizenship is the way of the future. In 2017, Western Union surveyed more than ten thousand millennials from fifteen countries, including the United States, India, and Russia. What they found provides a glimpse of where we’re heading in the years to come. Here are just a few of the results:

    • 79% believe limitless movement around the world will empower them.
    • 29% believe a single global currency will “foster great global unity.”
    • 61% believe global institutions like the United Nations are more representative of them versus national (48%) or local governments (44%).

In the 2016 Global Shapers Annual Survey, more than twenty-six thousand Millennials from 181 countries gave their opinions on world issues. Results included:

    • 48% of Millennials see climate change as the most serious issue the world faces.
    • When it comes to solving global problems, respondents say they trust international organizations (26%) more than they trust themselves (20%).
    • 36% of respondents view themselves as global citizens. This is a higher number than those who view themselves as national citizens (22%) or members of a religion (9%).

Many young people see themselves as global citizens first. They think borders should be open. They believe climate change is the world’s top problem, and they look to global political institutions for answers. This gives us a glimpse of what the world will look like in the future. Why? Because Millennial opinions will shape the world in the coming decades.

Adolf Hitler once said, “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already. You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time, they will know nothing else but this new community.’”

The globalists don’t need to win today’s elections because they’ve already won a generation of children.[i]

Globalism’s Siren Song

Powerful humanistic allurements beckon seductively, promising a golden future if all of earth’s people will come together as one. Such a glorious world order, long dreamed about and even fervently pursued, seems at last achievable. Those who hold the worldview that national boundaries must fall and sovereignties must diminish because we are all world citizens passionately embrace the earth-shrinking technologies that science continues to produce—the Internet, for example. Yes, the utopian dream at last seems achievable. However, while the sirens of globalism—like the twin sisters who lured unwary sailors to their deaths in Homer’s The Odyssey—sing their lovely, mesmerizing songs of New World Order, the words pronounced by the Ancient of Days reverberate through the corridors of antiquity and leap at this generation from the pages of God’s Holy Word:

Behold, the people are one and they have all one language, and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them which they have imagined to do. (Genesis 11:6)

The Creator of all things was not expressing His pride in mankind. He was concerned and saddened because all peoples of that time were united in their determination to build a world to their own specifications. And did this very first globalist effort displease the One who built into people the marvelous ability to do whatever they could imagine? Didn’t God Himself create us in His own image, infusing us with phenomenal creative drive?

The Cradle of Globalism

It seems at first glance a supreme paradox: The Creator made people in His own image, gifting us with powerful conceptual abilities, and thus with the ingenuity to build a tower that could ultimately reach into the heavens. Then, just as we began to fulfill our potential, the infallible Creator God manifested His displeasure in the people of that day:

The whole earth was of one language and of one speech. And it came to pass as they journeyed from the east that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. And they said to one another, Come, let us make bricks and bum them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build a city and a tower whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built. And the Lord said, Behold, the people are one and they have all one language, and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them which they have imagined to do.

Come, let us go down and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from there upon the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel, because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth; and from there did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. (Genesis 11:1–9)

God Almighty gave the human race a touch of His own genius, but when those people used it in this rebellious way, He confused that genius by disrupting their ability to communicate. Thereby He put an end to the globalist project. God’s dealings with His creation seemed incongruous: Did He change His mind about having made man in His own image? Did He resent competition in matters involving the creativity this building project might have represented?

Why did He break up the one-world building effort at Babel?

Image of God, Imagination of Man

God puts His mighty finger upon the answer to that question, and His answer at the same time pierces to the heart of the reason He had to destroy by flood the entire antediluvian world, with the exception of Noah, his family, and select animal life.

The cause of why God scattered the Babel builders, thereby ending their venture in globalism, is found even farther back in human history than the era of the Flood. God’s Word records about those ancient times and His divine judgment:

The Lord smelled a sweet savor; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground anymore for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite anymore every thing living, as I have done. (Genesis 8:21)

The key thought from the mind of God for our purposes here is “the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth.” Let’s examine this indictment in the framework of its context.

God declared that He would never again curse the ground as He did following man’s rebellion in the Garden of Eden. Neither, He said, would He ever again smite all living things as He did with the worldwide Flood of Noah’s day. God placed between these two promises the statement of truth about the fallen state of man, a fact absolutely rejected by today’s humanistic social architects. Their denial of this reality is at the core of globalism. So, too, is the demented assertion that man is evolving toward a higher order of being that will ultimately produce heaven on earth—peace, prosperity, and love for all mankind.

Adam and Eve’s God-attuned senses must have changed from perfection to imperfection in one cataclysmic moment. What a heart-wrenching scene it must have been when they willfully disobeyed God, choosing instead to yield to the tempter, who told them they would be as God when they ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. How devastating that eternity-rending moment must have been when those magnificently beautiful humans discarded the effulgence of God that had shrouded their nakedness. The image of God emanating from within their beings must have begun to dissipate, to change into frightening, darkened countenances. So, too, their minds no doubt became convoluted within their sin-infected thought processes. Both image and imagination in that moment altered into a perpetual state of opposition to the Creator with whom they had previously walked in perfect trust and love along the garden’s lush pathways.

Mankind’s course has been spiraling downward since that willful decision by the first man to do what was right in his own eyes rather than obey God. The Fall brought a curse upon planet earth and death to mankind. Every generation since Adam and Eve were evicted from Eden contributes ample proof that “the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked” (Jeremiah 17:9).

From the first murder, when Cain slew his brother, Abel, to the slaughter during the more than fifteen thousand wars of recorded history, to the most recent terrorist atrocity or one-on-one killing, fallen man continues through vile actions to testify to the truth of God’s indictment: “The imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth” (Genesis 8:21).

Babel Revisited

We make the mystery of the paradox more understandable when we reconsider these fascinating facts. God, who is perfect in all His ways, created humankind perfectly, actually making us in His own image. Once again, we realize that He gifted us with a powerful imagination so that whatever we could imagine, we could eventually do. However, when we began to use that imagination in building a tower that would reach into Heaven, God was displeased and stopped the project by confounding the language of the builders, then scattering them abroad. We again consider the question: If a perfect God created a perfect person, why did God act in such a seemingly harsh manner when the creature used God-given talent as recounted in the story of Babel?

The answer, of course, is that God also created us with free moral will. The creature wasn’t made a robot, but was made with brilliant conceptual abilities and given freedom of choice—which includes discernment for choosing wisely. But Adam chose to disobey God, so sin entered the world. The human bloodstream became instantly contaminated by the infection. The minds of the people, including their imaginations, became dark in the mystery of iniquity that engulfed them.

The paradox understood, the question is now answerable: What is wrong with people coming together in a united effort to construct a one-world order to achieve peace, prosperity, and love for all mankind? The answer is that we are spiritually separated from the Creator because of original sin. Our thinking is therefore fatally flawed. Nothing good can come from thinking and planning that excludes God.

Had God allowed the globalists of Nimrod’s day to continue their tower project, He would have had to ultimately curse the earth again as He did when Adam disobeyed, or He would have had to destroy all living things upon the earth as He did because of the corruption that required cleansing by the great Flood of Noah’s day. God wasn’t acting harshly at Babel, nor was He acting contrary to His perfect character. Rather, He was displaying unfathomable love by keeping His promises to the tiny fallen creature who deserved judgment and for whom He would one day sacrifice His only begotten Son.

The World-Order Schemers

Children of the tower of Babel builders today carry on the globalist agenda despite the differences in language and geographical separation. They circumvent the barriers through use of technologies designed to serve their one-world purposes.

The obsessive drive toward bringing all men, women, and children into one-world configuration arose shortly after the time Jesus Christ walked the earth. It is perhaps indicative of our sordid day that since the time He walked the earth in the flesh, this era has been called “AD,” an abbreviation of the Latin anno domini, “the year of the Lord,” but now we are to acknowledge that we live in the period of human history called the “Common Era,” or CE. The revisionists, you see, demand that all vestiges of Jesus Christ be erased—even from our lexicon. There must be many ways for the people of the coming New World Order to come to God, if indeed there is a God.

Jesus Christ, who said He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that no one can come to the Father but by Him (see John 14:6) simply doesn’t fit the globalist mold. Thinkers who formed that mold wanted there to be no doubt that people, through intellect, can do whatever they imagine. They can build a perfect world without input from any deity who might or might not be out there somewhere. This arrogant attitude of self-sufficiency is summed up in the document titled “The Declaration of Interdependence,” released by the United Nations’ World Affairs Council on January 30, 1976. It reads in part:

Two centuries ago, our forefathers brought forth a new nation; now we must join with others to bring forth a new world order. To establish a new world order…it is essential that mankind free itself from limitations of national prejudice…. We affirm that the economy of all nations is a seamless web, and that no nation can any longer effectively maintain its processes for production and monetary systems without recognizing the necessity of collaborative regulation by international authorities. We call upon all nations to strengthen the United Nations and other institutions of world order.

The zeal for stampeding everyone into a totally controlled global village hasn’t subsided. Elitist power brokers continue to fuel the humanist engine that drives the globalist machinery with grandiose declarations and promises of heaven on earth.

As we’ve seen the deep-state, surreptitious coup attempts to overturn a presidential election, it is prudent and wise to keep one eye on God’s prophetic Word and the other on daily, even hourly, news reports. Even now the stage is being set by Satan and his minions, both human and spiritual, for erecting the platform from which will launch the man who will be Antichrist.

Those who are God’s children shouldn’t look with trepidation upon these foreboding harbingers of the coming Tribulation period described by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse. However, it’s abundantly obvious that developments we’ve seen in wave after wave of UN intrusions into the lives of Americans should make all of us know that real agendas and activities lie behind our concerns.

All the World as One

Neo-Babel builders construct even their music in a way that clearly demonstrates the luciferian desire to usurp God’s throne. John Lennon’s universally popular song, “Imagine,” could easily be mistaken as portraying the biblically prophesied millennial reign of Jesus Christ. But Lennon, like the other Lenin, preached manmade heaven on earth—an imitative mockery of the true Messiah’s coming kingdom. The words and melody of that song are infectious in describing a scenario of people living in a borderless world without heaven, hell, or religion, “living life in peace” as a “brotherhood of man…sharing all the world.”

Globalism’s siren song is a one-world anthem that the true child of God cannot follow to its murderous, destructive end. The Holy Spirit within us is the tether who binds us to the masthead of truth. With Jesus Christ as the captain of our salvation, we navigate through the treacherous seas of our time.

Still, we must be alert and heed the wake-up call.

Globalist Storm Warning

There seemed to come a calming, refreshing breeze that restored common sense in America with the election of November of 2016. The vicious, destructive winds of socialistic madness had begun to stir early in the twentieth century. They grew to full hurricane strength while being channeled through increasingly liberal legislative and judicial bodies, with powerful assistance from equally liberal media.

The storm raged throughout the nation’s culture by the time the 1990s arrived. Occasional executive-branch resistance slowed it only momentarily while it roared against the country’s rapidly weakening moral barriers.

Suddenly, just as the great storm seemed to reach its full fury, American voters arose almost as one entity, and the howling leftist assault was brought to a dead calm.

Many reasons have been suggested for the loud repudiation of liberal ideology and its influence upon America’s governmental policies. Certainly, the electorate’s majority voice unmistakably demanded that politicians begin serving the people in a way that benefits the nation rather than continue serving their own parochial interests at taxpayers’ expense, as had been the case for decades.

But a sudden pulse of wind disrupted the calm only days after the people’s actions in the voting booths brought the tempest to a standstill. The gust seemed to burst from nowhere, although the clouds of its origin had been seething for many years in the financial stratosphere of the European Common Market.

The new storm front is even now whipping up monstrous economic waves that might very well swamp the nation in their wake. What the socialist engineers of the first part of the hurricane couldn’t accomplish with their internal assault, the socialist world economic powers that comprise the backside of the sovereignty-killing storm managed to achieve with little more than a tropical front. When the American voters swept the one-nation-under-godlessness, liberal, utopian schemers out the front door, the ejected ones quickly ran around the side of the house, where they joined with the globalist New World Order-builders, who were being welcomed in the back door with eager smiles and open arms by a lame-duck Congress that was composed in part by rational-thinking patriots who should have detected the ruse.

But there are none so blind as those who will not see. Under the guise of free trade, the one-world parasitic apparatus lit the torch of globalism, then began siphoning strength and resolve from this nation. The globalists-elite now channel America’s wealth, along with funds from other geopolitical and economic spheres, into third-world countries at a rate greater than ever before. They constantly strive to solidify power base through material-goods giveaways. They continue to create and consolidate an ever-increasing constituency dependent on the New World Order hierarchy for absolutely everything as those poorest of earth’s people move through their miserable lives from cradle to grave. It was done under the need to equalize living standards. The third world was starving and America’s position as superpower, with most of the world’s wealth, needed to agree to wealth redistribution.

The one-world schemers would have us believe that all this noblesse oblige is being undertaken on behalf of humanity for humanity’s own good—egalitarianism at its most glorious peak of achievement!

Mankind in general and Americans in particular fell prey to the sedative effects of globalism’s siren song while the eye of the storm passed calmly overhead. The lull allowed, even encouraged, the globalists-elite to start dismantling everything about the apex nation of history to fund their desire to rule the world through so-called social democracy—an ideology that has brought to the lowest rung of nationhood every country in which it has been tried.

Then entered a man who wanted to get America back on track to being the republic the founders had instituted with one of history’s greatest documents of human government—the US Constitution. Globalists at every level had a meltdown. Their rage became so intense that they colluded to overthrow the American electorate’s right to vote in whom the majority wants through the electoral college process.

God, however, is never fooled or overruled. He raises rulers, and He puts them down. The intervention in the case of the 2016 election was undeniable, in our estimation. God, however, despite the stopgap intervention, has not decided to let mankind continue conducting life in ways egregiously counter to His ways. He put out the storm warning long ago that a time will arrive when an elitist ruling class will combine its power and authority to create a mechanism of control through which it will attempt to enslave every human on the planet.

God’s warning stated that the world’s authority and power will ultimately be given to one man—the world’s last and most terrible despot (read again Daniel 9:27, Revelation 13, and Revelation 17:12, 13).

What Is America’s Role?

Those who analyze prophetic matters have long puzzled over why the United States of America isn’t mentioned specifically in God’s prophetic Word. Certainly there has never been a nation more blessed or more active in the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Small and seemingly insignificant nations and regions like Libya and Ethiopia are recorded in passages of prophecy yet to be fulfilled—but not America.

Could we, with all the strange machinations going on—the evil perpetrated within governments, the religious apostasy developing, the coronavirus pandemic, and all the other things assaulting this generation—be witnessing an accelerated movement into the prophesied Antichrist, global government?

To repeat the thought expressed earlier: With the election of November 2016, there seemed to come a calming, refreshing breeze that promised a return to government that serves the people rather than seeks to rule with mastery. America seemed to have been given a reprieve from the death sentence the woolly-minded had pronounced upon religious (and a growing number of other) liberties. But how deep is the commitment to return to those earlier, saner principles (and thus how realistic the reprieve) remains to be seen.

To those who have studied the Word of God, it’s clear that man-made government that refuses to be guided by God’s principles of morality will inevitably degenerate and fall to tyranny within its own borders or without. Political parties can’t muster the fortitude to either restrain or constrain the oppression and tyranny that incessantly seek to enslave. Government of, by, and for a moral people can ensure those inalienable rights our forefathers fought, bled, and died to secure for us. It is we the people, under God, who must determine to govern wisely. President George Washington said in his Farewell Address, “Reason and experience both forbid us that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” John Adams, America’s second president, said, “The United States Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”

We must begin by governing our own lives in a way that is pleasing to the Creator. There is only one way to please Him, and that is to put ourselves under the lordship of His Blessed Son, Jesus Christ, who shed His blood on the cross of Calvary for the remission of our sins. How wonderful it would be if not just the majority of American people, but a majority of people throughout the entire world, turned to Jesus Christ in humble repentance!

But, tragically, we can be certain that this will not happen. God in His omniscience tells us that “in the last days, perilous times shall come” and that “evil men and seducers will become worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” (see 2 Timothy 3). The man who will be the world’s last and most vicious tyrant is perhaps even now waiting in the shadows just beyond the spotlight’s circle. He will take the crown given to him by his New World Order sycophants and use the platform of globalism they have erected to build a monolithic throne upon which he will ultimately sit, claiming to be deity while demanding worship.

Paving the Way for Antichrist

Today, movers and shakers in global politics are paving the way for the world’s last dictator, the Antichrist. They do so most likely oblivious to biblical prophecy. But whether wittingly or not, they rush headlong into that dark night of apocalypse.

Thankfully, even though God’s judgment upon sin is sure, He is also slow to anger and His mercy is great. It is our opinion that we are currently in a lull God has graciously granted just before the prophesied end-of-time storm that will devastate a wrath-deserving generation. Even so, a brisk wind is already snapping the flag of warning that apocalypse approaches.

God the Holy Spirit earnestly and tenderly beckons all who will heed His call to take shelter within the only harbor where protection from the deadly whirlwind to come can be found. That safe harbor is Jesus Christ. Those who refuse to accept the haven or safety offered by Christ will perish beneath the raging, crashing surge as surely as did the antediluvians during the judgment of Noah’s day.
