As many of you know, I'm a end-times watcher, and I love looking at all the signs around me, all the prophecies of the Bible that are coming true right before our eyes! I get excited when I realize Jesus is coming again soon to take away his bride! But one question I often get asked is, "what about the final world empire that the antichrist is supposed to rule? If we are that close to the end, shouldn't it be rising up around us? Wouldn't it take years to come about?"
Yes it would take years, IF it was the kind of empire that our world has always known... the kind that conquers through armies and takes over countries by force. But we are told in Scripture that this final Kingdom will not be like any of the others.
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. Daniel 7:23
We are also told that the leaders of this kingdom and ultimately the anti-christ will conquer the world by "intrigue" Intrigue means "to plot craftily or underhandedly"
And in his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue Daniel 11:21
Today, in the USA, as well as many other countries, there's a huge battle going on in governments. In the USA, some define it as Liberalism vs Conservatism, others as Right and left, others as Socialism vs. Capitalism. But to me, it's a matter of Nationalism vs. Globalism.
Nationalism is devotion and loyalty to one's own country; patriotism
Globalism is the attitude or policy of placing the interests of the entire world above those of individual nations.
Like him or not, our current president is a nationalist. Don't worry I'm not going to get political
At first glance, globalism may seen like a great idea, right? Globalists say that population is getting so large and we are all so connected now that we are really just one world. If there weren't any nations, there wouldn't be any wars. There wouldn't be battles over resources or land. Same goes for religion. If there was one global religion, then there wouldn't be wars fought over ideology. People wouldn't kill each other for not believing as they did. We could address topics like climate change for the good of the planet. People could travel anywhere they wanted without restriction or passports. We could pool our resources and address earths' problems and outer space exploration.
Sounds great, doesn't it? But my question is, who is going to run this global government and what type of government will it be? If you think it will be a democracy or republic, think again. There's no way to have that type of government with so many people. Besides, the current "globalists" who are pushing for this, have a different idea. They want to be in the ones in charge. Think of a dark room somewhere with 10 or so men and women deciding the fate of everyone on the planet. Do you think that kind of power won't corrupt them? Throughout history has there ever been a world ruler who wasn't evil?
This idea of global government has been around since the beginning of time. Remember the Tower of Babel? The current world leader, Nimrod, wanted to build a tower to reach heaven where he could sit and rule the world. Do you think God is in favor of a human global government? What did God do to Nimrod's plans? If you remember the story, God gave everyone a different language so they couldn't understand each other, so they each went their separate ways to separate countries.
Communism and Socialism are just stepping stones to world domination. The more power you give to government, the less freedom you have. You must understand the mindset of most people in power. They do NOT have your best interest at heart. They believe they are better, smarter, stronger than the masses. This idea of the "philosopher king" has been around for thousands of years. It's the idea that there are an elite group of people so superior to the masses that they should be the ones in charge. That common people are too stupid to run their own lives.
So, why am I telling you all this? Because the New World Order, the AntiChrist Beast System is already here! It sits in the shadows, behind the scenes, pulling the strings. It consists of powerful and extremely rich family lines that have come down through the centuries, intermarrying with one another to ensure their superior genetics remain. These are the people who will ally with the AntiChrist in the beginning of the Tribulation. Some world disaster will trigger them all to come into the light and the Antichrist to take over. They will tell people that we all need to unite under one government for the safety and security of all. They will promise food and shelter and goodies to make it sound so wonderful. And many people will be deceived.
Yet, we are already starting to see some of these people peek out from the shadows. You must always ask yourself why a certain politician is doing what they are doing and saying what they are saying. Ask yourself is it good for my country or is it better for globalism? Things that are good for globalism are typically bad for the country. In other words, if the Globalists can destroy America from within, then we will be an easy target to join the New World Order
So policies that:
- Bring more crime into the country
- Bring more drugs into the country
- Bring terrorists into the country
- Overpopulate the country to deplete jobs and resources
- Cause America to be divided and hate each other over race, politics, religion or sexual orientation..
- Prohibit or defame Christianity
- Raise unemployment
- Increase the national debt
- Put more people on welfare and food stamps
- Raise taxes
- Bad trade deals that give away our wealth unfairly
- Taxes and regulations on business that drive companies overseas
- Make us energy dependent on other nations
- Start wars for no reason
Would probably be initiated by a Globalist. But of course they will use language that makes it seem like they really care about you and this is all for your good and for a better life for you. Many of our leaders on both sides of the isle are Globalists. Many. Which is why they hate Trump so much. He put a kink in their plans for globalism.
The Antichrist beast system is already here. It will only take a single spark, a world disaster, or an invasion to bring all of these people to the forefront. Hence, when people ask me about the final world empire, I tell them it is here...just waiting.....
Is God in favor of human globalism? Obviously no from Scripture. But He is in favor of a World Government that will one day be ruled by Jesus for 1000 years! Now that's something to cheer about!
