New World Order! Exciting? Scary? A conspiracy?
by Irvin Baxter
The term New World Order surfaces…then goes away for a while. Then it comes back…and then recedes again.
Well, it’s back…with a vengeance! With the economic crisis and the election of Barack Obama, it seems like everybody is talking about the New World Order.
So is this thing called the New World Order good? Is it bad? What are people talking about when they refer to the New World Order?
First of all, let’s take a look at some of the statements made about New World Order by prominent political leaders through the years:
Franklin D. Roosevelt–1935
President Roosevelt placed the words New World Order on the back of the U.S. dollar bill in 1935. Written in Latin, the words Novus Ordo Seclorum were placed on the ribbon below the pyramid. Novus means new. Ordo means order. Seclorum means secular or world.
Roosevelt then went on to be the driving force behind the founding of the United Nations—the only entity specifically created to become a system of world government.
Pope Paul VI–1967
In his encyclical Populorum Progressio, Pope Paul VI said, “Who can fail to see the need and importance of thus gradually coming to the establishment of a world authority capable of taking effective action on the juridical and political planes? Delegates to international organizations, public officials, gentlemen of the press, teachers and educators–all of you must realize that you have your part to play in the construction of a New World Order.”
“…A New World Order is taking shape so fast that governments as well as private citizens find it difficult just to absorb the gallop of events…”
Washington Post, February 25, 1990
George Herbert Walker Bush–1991
We have before us an opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order—a world where the rule of law, not the law of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we are successful, and we will be, we have a real chance at this New World Order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the UN’s founders.
On July 18,1993, Henry Kissinger wrote in the Los Angeles Times concerning the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA): “What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement, but the architecture of a new international system…a first step toward a New World Order.”
Concerning whether U.S. troops should remain in Somalia as part of a U.N. operation, General Colin Powell, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says that a pullout would be “devastating to our hopes for the New World Order and our ability to participate in multinational organizations to deal with problems like this.”
Pope Benedict XVI–2005
In his first Christmas address, Pope Benedict XVI urged humanity to unite against terrorism, poverty and environmental blight and called for a “New World Order” to correct economic imbalances.
Vice-president Joe Biden–2008
Vice-president Biden’s speech in Clayton Hall at the University of Delaware was entitled, “On the Threshold of the New World Order: A Rebirth for the United Nations.”
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown–2008
On September 20,2008, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, “So, in conclusion, ladies and gentlemen, a new world is emerging. It is a New World Order with significantly different and radically new challenges for the future.”
On January 5, 2009, Henry Kissinger said on MSNBC about President Obama, “…He can give new impetus to American foreign policy partly because the reception of him is so extraordinary around the world. His task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period when, really, a New World Order can be created. It’s a great opportunity, it isn’t just a crisis.”
Above is just a small sample of statements endorsing the New World Order. Yet the question remains! What do these world leaders mean by “New World Order”?
Let’s allow the world leaders themselves to explain what they mean.
In his article, “Birth of the Global Nation,” published in Time magazine, July 20, 1992, Talbott said, “In the 21st century, nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority.”
He was quickly rewarded for his belief in the coming world government by then President Clinton. In 1993, Talbott was made Deputy Secretary of State and continued to push his New World Order agenda throughout the remainder of the Clinton administration.
Walter Cronkite said it best–1999
Former CBS Anchorman Walter Cronkite received the Global Governance Award from the World Federalist Association in 1999. The World Federalist Association is one of the largest organizations in the world that openly advocates one world government. At the award ceremony, Cronkite said the following:
“Today we must develop federal structures on a global level to deal with world problems. We need a system of enforceable world law and a democratic federal world government.”
Hillary Clinton congratulates Cronkite
During the ceremony at which Cronkite received the Global Governance Award, Hillary Clinton congratulated Cronkite by way of video. She said, “For decades, you told us the way it is. But tonight we honor you for fighting for the way it could be.”
In a statement to the UN Business Council, Rockefeller said, “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”
Rahm Emanuel–Obama chief of staff
“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”
It appears that the “right major crisis” that David Rockefeller hoped for is being realized in the present global economic crisis. At the G20 meeting on April 2-3, 2009, the world leaders decided to establish a global financial oversight board, since all of the world’s economies are now interdependent. The first step was taken to create a world reserve currency instead of the U.S. dollar.
When Rahm Emanuel said that a serious crisis was an opportunity to do things that you could not do before, he was obviously serious. President Obama has used this crisis to take a 72 percent ownership in General Motors, take control of many banks, takeover AIG, and a host of other socialistic actions. Most of these steps that have been taken are probably unconstitutional. So far the American people have rolled over and accepted them with barely a whimper! Why? Because of fear created by the crisis we are in—just like Rockefeller said.
So what is the New World Order?
By now I think we all know the answer. Strobe Talbott said that in the 21st century, national sovereignty would cease to exist. We would all answer to a single global authority.
Walter Cronkite said the same thing in no uncertain terms. He said a system of world government is mandatory.
Plainly stated, New World Order is world government!
So all of these revered world leaders from Franklin Roosevelt, to President H.W. Bush, to Colin Powell, to Pope Benedict XVI, to Henry Kissinger, to Joe Biden, are all promoting a system of world government when they endorse the New World Order? Right! Absolutely right!
It’s all prophesied
Should the rapid surge toward world government that we are experiencing at this time surprise us? Not if we are familiar with the prophecies of the Bible. The scriptures clearly foretell that a world government will appear on earth just before the Battle of Armageddon and the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Daniel 7:23 describes the world government this way:
“Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.”
Revelation 13:7-8 also foretells the presently emerging world government:
“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
Notice that the world government will have power over all kindreds, tongues and nations. The scripture states that all will worship the Antichrist—the leader of the world government—except those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Now we know. New World Order is world government! And it is the world government that will be in power at the time of the second coming of Christ. Furthermore, it is being set up right now!
