The Bible Prophesies World Government
By Irvin Baxter
Implementation of Global Governance will Continue
The powers that be are determined to move the world from the present nation-state structure to a system of global governance. They have embraced the theory that nations are the root cause of war. They believe if nationhood was abolished and the world was governed by the UN, wars between nations would naturally disappear because there would only be one global nation. Almost everything going on in our world today can be understood only when viewed through the eyes of globalization.
The dream of one-world government is not new. Nebuchadnezzar–King of Babylon, Cyrus and Darius–Kings of the Medes and the Persians, Alexander the Great–King of Greece, and the Caesars of Rome were all captivated by the allure of extending their authority over all the earth.
The vision of an all-encompassing world authority is alive and well today. This dream has given birth to such terms as the International Community, World Community, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, World Health Organization, World Court, and of course, that favorite catch phrase–globalization.
What do They Mean–Globalization?
It’s not a new concept, but it is a fairly new term. The concept of one-world government captivated the minds of world leaders after World War II. They came together to form the United Nations with the hope of ending conflict among nations and ushering in a new age of peace and security. However, it didn’t work. Soon after the UN was born the Cold War broke out. Then came the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the wars of 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973, and then 2014 between the Arabs and Jews as well as other conflicts around the world too numerous to mention.
Of all the conflicts, the Cold War was the most dangerous because it brought the two nuclear superpowers, the US and the USSR, into direct conflict. Between the two of them, they possessed enough nuclear firepower to destroy all human, plant and animal life from the face of the planet 100 times over. Consequently, for forty years the world lived in dread of the possibility of a war that would spell the end of humanity.
When the Berlin Wall fell on November 9, 1989 the world breathed a collective sigh of relief. The short-lived hope that had emerged with the birth of the United Nations sprang back to life. Twenty-one short days after the fall of the hated Wall, Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, US President George Herbert Walker Bush, and Pope John Paul II met together to chart the course of the world’s future. They came out of those meetings announcing the birth of the New World Order.
After this, we were told repeatedly that we all needed to think globally. That’s when the term globalization entered into the world’s vocabulary. Simply stated, globalization is the process of globalizing the world. The goal of globalization is the end of the nation-state and the birth of global governance. President H.W. Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev referred to the goal of globalization as the New World Order.
A World Without Borders
Most Americans have been mystified by hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants pouring across our borders while President Obama brazenly violates his oath to uphold the immigration laws of the United States. It is like hoards of illegals woke up one morning with the urge to head to the U.S. The media played their role in the plan by preaching that it would be unhumanitarian to enforce our immigration laws.
Opponents of our leaders ignoring immigration laws protested, “If someone walked into your house uninvited, saying they needed a place to stay, you wouldn’t tell them they could just move in with you, would you?”
Some would have us believe this wave of illegal immigration was just a sudden phenomenon. Don’t you ever believe it! It was all planned, orchestrated and financed by the globalists!
Now we see the same thing happening throughout Europe. Millions have flooded Europe over the last few months. Germany’s President Angela Merkel said, “…the influx of asylum seekers into Germany was part of the fallout from globalization, which,” she noted, “had served Germany well in terms of exports and jobs.” (AFP 10-21-15)
All this boils down to one simple fact: If you’re going to embrace globalization, you can’t enforce your borders. You can’t have your cake and eat it too!
Global Warming and Global Government
Global warming (oops, I mean climate change) threatens the future of the planet. So goes the propaganda of the climate alarmists.
Have you stopped to ask why the global warming alarmists changed their message from global warming to climate change? They had to because there is no global warming! There has been no global warming for the last eighteen years. An article recently announced that the Antarctic Ice Cap is growing rapidly. (MELTDOWN MYTH: Antarctic ice growing is just the first EVIDENCE global warming is NOT REAL, EXPRESS 11-5-15)
If there is no global warming, then why are both President Obama and Pope Francis championing the cause of global warming? It’s very simple! They are both avid advocates of one-world government. Global warming is the cause that the globalists hope to ride into global governance.
Here’s the message. Carbon emissions are producing manmade global warming. Global warming will cause sea levels to rise, threatening many islands and shorelines. These carbon emissions will also contaminate the water we drink and the air we breathe.
Since we all drink the same water and breathe the same air, the only way to fight this frightening international problem is to pass international laws controlling each person’s and each business’s carbon emissions. Once a person reaches his or her allotted carbon emissions for the year, that individual will be required by international law to purchase carbon credits from someone from a third world country that doesn’t use all of his or her carbon allotment.
This will do two things. It will cause people to reduce their carbon emissions, and it will redistribute wealth from “have” nations to “have-not” nations, since it is the “have-not” nations that will have the most carbon credits to sell. So, we reduce carbon emissions and force every nation to surrender its sovereignty and bow to the authority of international law.
By the time you read this article, the Global Warming conference will have been held in Paris, France.
(November 30-December 11, 2015) If President Obama and Pope Francis have their way, a binding Climate Change agreement will be signed that can be imposed upon all the nations of the world.
Participating nations have prepared a treaty that would create an “International Tribunal of Climate Justice” giving third world countries the power to haul the U.S. into a global court with enforcement powers.
The Bible Prophesies World Government
Revelation 13:7 states that the Antichrist will exert power over all the earth:
“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.”
Daniel 7:23 also describes the Antichrist as devouring the whole earth:
“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.”
Many other passages prophesy the same thing for the end time. Expect the push into global governance to continue accelerating during 2016.
World’s Most Horrible War Ever in 2016?
It is extremely possible that the most horrendous prophecy in the entire Bible will come to pass in 2016. Revelation 9:13-16 foretells a world war that will annihilate one-third of the human race.
“Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, ‘Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.’ 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. Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.”
This prophecy foretells a war that will do three things:
- Start from the Euphrates River
- Kill one-third of the human race
- Involve an army of 200 million soldiers
ISIS has captured fifty-seventy percent of the Euphrates River in the last two years. ISIS has also captured sixty percent of Syria and approximately one-half of Iraq. Additionally, the terrorist state has extended its influence into Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Afghanistan, Tunisia, Niger, Chad, Nigeria, Bosnia, Dagestan, and Pakistan. It has recently perpetrated deadly attacks in Lebanon, Paris, France and bombed a Russian airplane.
Sixty-five nations have now joined the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS. Additionally, Russia, China and Iran have joined the fight against the world’s richest terror organization.
ISIS has declared a Caliphate and has recognized Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the Caliph of the newborn Caliphate. The Islamic State is using the Internet and social media to attract fighters from all over the world to join its fight to establish the Islamic goal of worldwide Islamic rule. It is the hope of ISIS that the 1.6 billion Muslims that exist around the world will unite against the infidel West.
Will the Present Conflict Develop Into WWIII?
The Sixth Trumpet War that we refer to as WWIII is definitely coming. It’s specifically prophesied in the Bible, and the Bible’s prophecies always come to pass. The only question is “When?”.
We cannot say with absolute certainty that the present conflict with ISIS will develop into the Sixth Trumpet War. However, it looks very probable that this will happen. It also seems quite likely this conflict will come to a head in 2016.
The Prophesied Palestinian-Israeli Peace Agreement
The scriptures foretell a peace agreement between Palestinians and Israelis. When this agreement is finally reached, the Final Seven Years to Armageddon and the Second Coming of Jesus will occur. This agreement will do three things:
- It will create a Palestinian state in the area of Judea-Samaria. (the West Bank)
- It will allow Jews presently living in the area of the new Palestinian state to retain their homes and properties there and live as a Jewish minority in the new state.
- The Temple Mount will be placed under a sharing arrangement between Muslims and Jews. The Jews will be permitted to build their temple on the Temple Mount without disturbing the Dome of the Rock or the Al Aqsa Mosque.
Will the Peace Agreement Happen in 2016?
President Obama and John Kerry have stated that they don’t have hope for the conclusion of a Middle East peace agreement before the end of the Obama administration. Giving prevailing conditions, a peace deal doesn’t appear likely during this year.
However, if the Sixth Trumpet War would take place in 2016, the likelihood of the Middle East peace agreement would increase exponentially. After one-third of the human race has been wiped out, the outcry for resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict will become deafening. If the prophesied Middle East peace agreement doesn’t happen before the Sixth Trumpet War, it will very likely come quickly after the worldwide conflagration.
Will 2016 Elections Change the Course of America?
President Obama is a globalist to his core. He has pushed throughout his entire administration to move the United States and the world into global governance.
However, the prophecy of the world government of the end time portrays the United States as being excluded from the end time government of the Antichrist.
In order for this to come to pass, the U.S. will need to experience a dramatic change of direction. It is very possible that the 2016 presidential election could provide that change of direction. There are several candidates, especially on the Republican side, that would reverse the move toward global governance, restore close ties with Israel and hopefully lead America back toward the return of Judeo-Christian values.
Other Prophetic Trends to Watch in 2016
- Anti-Semitism will continue to increase as the world moves closer to the Great Tribulation. This will include the ever-increasing isolation of Israel.
- Efforts will continue toward religious unity. The globalists believe the world must be united politically, economically and religiously.
- Personal freedoms will be increasingly infringed upon in the name of security as the war on terror continues.
- The European Union will become stronger and Anti-Semitism in Europe will continue to increase. This trend will lead to the rise of the Antichrist and the False Prophet in Europe.
- The world will move closer and closer to a cashless society as people become increasingly more comfortable with the daily use of technology. Though not evil within itself, the development of electronic payments is preparing the way for the prophesied Mark of the Beast.
- Russia will continue to play a prominent role in the emerging one-world government. When depicting the world government of the end time in Revelation 13:1-2, the feet of the world government beast are the feet of the bear. (Russia)
This summary of prophetic fulfillments to be expected in 2016 is in no way conclusive. Because we are so close to the culmination of all the prophecies, almost everything going on in the world pertains to prophetic fulfillment in one way or another. We will continue to keep you updated in each edition of Endtime magazine as world events unfold throughout the year.
