Order Out of Chaos

The Middle East peace talks have been suspended. Russia has annexed Crimea. Civil war is boiling in the Ukraine. Iraq is engulfed in a full-fledged conflict between Sunni and Shia Islamists. Fifty thousand children and young people have poured across the southern border of the US so far this year. And did I mention that Bashar Assad just won another term as president of Syria although 160,000 people have died so far in Syria’s civil war?


Only one word can really describe the condition of our world right now. CHAOS!

Ordo Ab Cho

Ordo Ab Cho is the Latin phrase for “Order Out of Chaos”. According to basic Illuminati or higher Masonic dogma, the New World Order will result after a period of choreographed chaos, which the state will probably implement through war and bloodshed. Masonic initiates who progress and ultimately attain the 33rd degree receive a jewel with the inscription “Ordo Ab Chao,” surrounded with three interlocking triangles. Professor Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, a Freemason and a political and social scientist at the University of Berlin (1817-1831), maintained that man could shape history and achieve ultimate peace only through repetitive episodes of controlled conflict between opposing forces. Hegel advocated the idea that men must create, manipulate and manage that conflict in order to create a pre-determined outcome – the controlled change, the synthesis.

Bible Prophesies Chaos Ahead

The present turmoil we find ourselves in is child’s play compared to the world upheaval just ahead as foretold in the Bible. The prophecy of Revelation 9:15 simply says: “So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.” (NKJV) One-third of humanity wiped out in this prophesied war? Now that’s chaos!


The Bible does prophesy that out of the chaos described in Revelation 9:13-21 will emerge a New World Order. Good news? No! It will be the one-world government over which the Antichrist will rule. It will be three and one-half years of the worst tyranny the world has ever known.

Is There Any Hope?

Daniel 11:32-33 prophesies concerning the Antichrist and his reign: “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he (the Antichrist) corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many…”


The time of the Antichrist will be a time of great persecution against God’s people. However, this passage specifically states that Christians during this time will be strong and do exploits! The prophecy also says that those who understand the times in which they are living shall “instruct many”. This lets us know that during the times of chaos just ahead, there will be great opportunities for leading people to Jesus Christ.


Yes, there is definitely more and greater chaos ahead. No one can change that. It is prophesied, and the prophecies always come to pass.


However, we can either cower in fear or we can boldly pursue the fulfillment of the great commission left to us by our Lord Jesus Christ. We should be gearing up right now for the greatest evangelistic thrust in the history of the church!


And remember…only Jesus Christ can truly bring order out of chaos.
