With most people, the thought of a global conspiracy working behind the scenes of national and international events is comical. At the very suggestion of such a scheme, the average person, especially if he’s an American, will roll his eyes, laugh, or reply with something like, “Well, I wouldn’t go that far! ” What such people fail to realize is that God’s word, the Bible, does go that far.
In fact, it goes a good bit further. According to the thirteenth chapter of the book of Revelation, this present world is headed for an absolute global dictatorship:
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. (Rev. 13:3)
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. (Rev. 13:8)
И он имел власть оживить образ зверя, чтобы образ зверя и говорил, и чтобы все, кто не поклонялся образу зверя, были убиты. И он повелевает всем, малым и великим, богатым и бедным, свободным и рабам, получить начертание на свою правую руку или на чело их: и чтобы никто не мог покупать или продавать, кроме того, у кого есть начертание, или имя зверя или число его имени. Вот мудрость. Пусть разумный сосчитает число зверя: ибо это число человека; и его число шестьсот шестьдесят шесть. (Откр.13:15-18)
God’s word declares that the day is coming when “all the world” will be trapped in a Satanically-controlled global government, and it declares that those who resist it will be executed. Those who comply with it will be doomed to everlasting torment (Rev. 14:11).
Upon presenting this information, there are a number of reactions that one could expect to observe. Some react by simply ignoring the information as though it were unworthy of their time and energy. Others may choose to briefly consider the information, but then dispel it as being a “religious thing” that doesn’t concern or interest them. Also, a good many people would react by claiming that this section of the Bible is highly symbolic and cannot be taken literally. Then some would take it
literally, only to find an “escape” by insisting that these events have already been fulfilled. Others would take it all literally and then claim (and hope!) that these prophecies will not reach their fulfillment until some point in the far distant future. No doubt, there would be a number of other reactions as well.
The Bible-believing Christian, however, would not fall into any of the above categories. Being a Bible believer, he would naturally take the Revelation account to be accurate and literal. Furthermore, having a fair knowledge of basic Bible prophecy, he would know that these events are not in the far distant future because so many other Bible prophecies have been and are being fulfilled before his very eyes. It would only make sense that recent and present events are somehow leading up to the one- world system of Revelation chapter thirteen. This publication is an attempt to place a few pieces into the “puzzle” so as to offer a better picture of the world scene for those who do believe the Bible.
This is not a book about “saving America” or “shattering the global conspiracy,” for neither can be accomplished. If I may be so blunt, the only thing I intend to save in the forthcoming pages is your soul, and the only thing that I intend to shatter is your confidence in man. Far too many Christians in this world, and particularly in America, are hoping for a better day when our leaders will clean up and start seeking the old paths, yet that day never comes. “Oh, but we can’t give up hope!” you may be thinking. I won’t ask you to give up hope, but will you consider changing your hope?
Efforts to reform America, or any other nation, are not totally in vain because such efforts do often “buy a little time” of peace and stability for ourselves and our loved ones, and we might even see a few more souls saved and a few more Christians growing during this “extra” time. I want to buy all the time I possibly can, but not at the expense of Biblical truth. I still vote, and I still encourage Christians to do all they can to preserve morality and freedom in our nation, but I am not so naive as to think that we’re going to save America or the world. We might buy some time, and if the Lord Jesus doesn’t return soon, I hope we buy lots of it, but this country and the world at large are headed for a new world order under the Antichrist. It is my sincere prayer that your hope lies in the promises of God rather than in the promises of blind politicians and “peacemakers” who have a long track record of only increasing our worries while decreasing our hopes in any
kind of prosperous future.
This work was originally published as a 160 page book in 2004 (Satan’s New World Order). Most of the “meat” from that volume has been preserved in this condensed and retitled edition. Publishing the information as a booklet, rather than an expensive book, will hopefully promote greater circulation and reach more souls in the months and years ahead. The storm clouds are clearly gathering. May this volume encourage you and others to look beyond this present evil world to a brighter future and eternity in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Regardless of any skeptical worldviews, the Christian should know better than anyone that conspiracies are real. The first and simplest reason is the fact that the word “conspiracy” is found thirty times in the Bible in its different forms (conspiracy, conspired, etc). II Samuel 15:31 even offers us the word “conspirators.” Therefore, the believer isn’t on very secure ground if he dismisses the notion of conspiracies altogether. To do so would be to deny the word of God.
A second reason which gives us purpose for believing in modern conspiracies, and even a global conspiracy, is the fact that God’s word tells us that Satan is the “god of this world” (II Cor. 4:4) who will eventually deceive “the whole world” (Rev. 12:9). In the account of the temptation of Jesus (Luke 4:1-13), we learn that Satan presently has control of the kingdoms of this world and he gives them to whomever he chooses: “. . . All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.” (Luke 4:6) With this fact being considered, why would one think it strange that Satan would inspire human conspiracies? To the contrary, as we know of his plan for a world dictatorship under the Antichrist, it would seem strange if he did not use conspiracies. He certainly found the power of conspiracy to be useful in the betrayal and crucifixion of Christ, so why would he not inspire men in like manner today?
Paul warned the Thessalonian believers that “the mystery of iniquity” was already at work (II Ths. 2:7), and he informed the Christians at Ephesus that Satan was “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” (Eph. 2:2). The only sensible (or safe) position for the Christian is to assume that Satan is alive and active in world affairs and that his system is well organized and well guarded at the highest levels. After all, he isn’t called “the god of this world” for no reason. We can safely assume that the Prince of Darkness has a fair number of his loyal subjects in the high offices of this world. How else could his kingdom have endured the past 6,000 years of human history? Obviously, it couldn’t have survived without the use of conspiracies. They are in the Bible, and it is foolish to think that they do not exist today.
John F. Haylan, former Mayor of New York City, said it well when giving a speech nearly a century ago on March 26, 1922:
The real menace of our republic is the invisible government which, like a giant octopus, sprawls its slimy length over our city, state, and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses generally referred to as “international bankers.” This little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run our government for their own selfish ends.
Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope
(New York: Macmillan, 1966), pp. 326-27
Almost another century ago, President Andrew Jackson addressed the same class of moneymen behind the scenes in an 1828 campaign speech when he sounded this warning:
You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God, I will rout you out.
Des Griffin, Fourth Reich of the Rich (Clackamas, OR: Emissary Publications, 1976), p. 184
In that same speech, President Jackson went on to say that
If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system there would be a revolution before morning.
Jackson meant business. In 1832, he vetoed the “Bank of the United States Bill” which would have established a national bank nearly a century before the monstrous Federal Reserve System was invented and even several years before Marx and Engels
would call for a national bank in their Communist Manifesto. We need a few more leaders like Andrew Jackson (also a Christian). After all, he was the only U.S. President ever to eliminate the national debt. Modern leaders just add to it.
In Senator Barry Goldwater’s 1979 book With No Apologies, the good senator and presidential candidate from Arizona stated that David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission
. . . is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States.
(B. Goldwater, With No Apologies
(New York: William Morrow, 1979), p. 79)
Andrew Jackson was not a “right wing extremist,” yet he believed in a behind-the-scenes effort being carried out by super rich power brokers. Of course, there are many others who also have believed like Jackson and Goldwater, at least in respect to an organized conspiracy. Congressman Charles Lindberg believed it in 1913, as did British Prime Minister Benjamin Desraeli (1876), the editor of the Christian Science Monitor (1920), Senator William Jenner (1954), Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter (1940’s and 1950’s), and even President Woodrow Wilson (1913). Many others could be mentioned.
Even President Donald Trump acknowledged the existence of globalist-minded powerbrokers and fought hard against them with his “America First” and “Make America Great Again” policies. In his 2018 speech to the United Nations, President Trump was ridiculed and mocked for making such bold utterances as
America is governed by Americans . . . We reject the ideology of globalism and accept the doctrine of patriotism.
(UN General Assembly speech, September 25, 2018)
“But how,” one might ask, “could such a conspiracy exist without someone exposing it?” Someone has exposed it, many times, but very few will ever know of it because no one in the mainstream media will take up the issue. “But why not?” you ask, “It would make such a big news item!” Indeed it would—a big bad news item for those running the media since they too are part of the conspiracy! Some of them know it, while others do not, but
Satan knows it, and his spirit directs the media to favor his cause. If this sounds doubtfUl, one only has to ponder the confession of former New York Times editor John Swinton at an American Press dinner way back in 1914:
There is no such thing as an independent press in America, if we except that of little country towns. You know this and I know it. Not a man among you dare utter his honest opinion. Were you to utter it, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print . . .
It is the duty of a New York journalist to lie, to revile, to toady at the feet of Mammon, to sell his country and his race for his daily bread, or what amounts to the same thing, his salary. We are tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are marionettes.
These men pull the strings, and we dance. Our time, our talents, our lives and our capacities are the property of these men—we are intellectual prostitutes.
Des Griffin, Fourth Reich of the Rich (Clackamas, OR: Emissary Publications, 1976), p. 3
“So, Bro. Melton, are you saying that we can’t trust anyone? Is everything is just a big lie, a big cover-up with the truth hidden somewhere behind the mask?” No, God’s word is telling you that: “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” (I John 5:19) Friend, you’re going to have to come to grips with the fact that Satan is real, he is alive, and he has an agenda (Rev. 13). Those who aren’t against him are for him, be they politicians, world bankers, journalists, news anchors, movie stars, or a member of your family. Just as God’s Holy Spirit fills and leads the Christian in the will of God, Satan’s unholy spirit fills and leads the unsaved world in his will (Eph. 2:2; John 13:27; 8:44; I John 3:10). Whether they know it or not is irrelevant. The devil is in charge of their lives, and they are assisting him in reaching his goal. This is true in all walks of life at all levels because people are the same everywhere. If you sometimes have doubts about the integrity of your small town council, why don’t you have far greater doubts about the hundreds of millionaire politicians in Washington?
The modern Christian views this present world as being generally good with only scattered spots of evil (Hitler, Hussein, Manson, Ho Chi Min, Stalin, Kim Jong-un, etc.). The Bible record, however, is a whole different story: “. . . every man at his best state is altogether vanity . . . Surely men of low degree are
vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity . . . Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased; For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him. Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself. He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light. Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish . . . But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man . . . For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man . . . And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. (Psa. 39:5; 49:16-20; 62:9; John 2:24-25; Mark 7:21-23; I John 5:19) That is what God says about man, because man would never say such things about himself. The idea that men in high positions are tools of the devil seldom occurs to most Christians, yet God’s word has been very clear in telling us that Satan is the god of this world, he has children who are led by his spirit, and it tells us that he will eventually lead the whole world to worship him. If Christians can’t grasp this truth, what are the chances that unsaved politicians and media people are going to grasp it? Slim, indeed, so why should we trust them?
During an Oval Office interview of President Bush on February 7th, 2004, Tim Russert, of NBC’s Meet the Press, asked the President about his and Senator John Kerry’s past membership in a secret society at Yale called Skull and Bones. The President’s response was, “It’s so secret we can’t talk about it.” Kerry gave about the same response when Russert asked him the same question a few month’s earlier. In neither case did Russert pressure these men for answers. The subject was soon changed and the public was left in ignorance regarding this secret organization. Even popular talk show host Sean Hannity made light of the issue to one of his callers on March 5, 2004, by stating that politicians are entitled to some privacy. (Where have we heard that before?) Either these media people assumed that the President and Mr. Kerry were generally good men who wouldn’t belong to an evil society (an unscriptural assumption, in light of
the verses already presented), or these media people didn’t have the courage to dig for the truth. Do you?
Friend, do you think it’s a mere coincidence that some of our highest government positions and some of the highest media positions are filled by members of such global-minded organizations as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission (TC)? Have you ever studied these groups, or have you been programmed by the Establishment to roll your eyes and smirk at the very mention of their names? The Bible says, “He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.” (Pro. 18:13) Perhaps you’ve spent many hours of your time watching the Establishment news “programs” (a fitting word, indeed!), but have you ever read The Shadows of Power by James Perloff or Fourth Reich of the Rich by Des Griffin? “I’ve never heard of those titles,” you may be thinking. Well, now you have. Will that change anything?
Americans are a free and busy people, so they basically trust others to run the nation without keeping a close watch on them. Joe sixpack will watch the evening news and believe it. The fact that it was carefully designed and packaged for him by his enemies never occurs to him. Joe will listen to a politician’s stump speech and like what he hears. He seldom considers the fact that the speech was written by a crafty speech writer who had already received polling data that told him what people like Joe wanted to hear. On Election Day, Joe will make his way to the polls feeling rather good about himself because he has stayed on top of things and become well informed, and he is performing his patriotic duty by voting. The fact that he was informed (or misinformed) by careful design doesn’t matter. The fact that he was possibly lied to doesn’t matter. The fact that the last ten politicians he voted for broke their campaign promises doesn’t matter. Joe is an American, he listened, and he voted. He’s real proud of himself so don’t ruin his day with the facts, the facts that Satan is the “god of this world” and his loyal agents fill most of the highest seats.
Satan is the god of this world and the father of lies and deceit; therefore, it only makes sense that we take for granted that his followers are conspiring for his kingdom and cause—whether they know it or not, and whether they admit it or not. “The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together,
against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.” (Psa. 2:2-3) You do believe the Bible, don’t you?
Whether they are media kings, political kings, financial kings, entertainment kings (and queens) or mafia kings, “the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed.” To deny conspiracies is to deny God’s word. Yes, there are some conspiracy theories that are incredibly far-fetched and just plain ridiculous, and, if you allow him, Satan will make sure that you are exposed to those theories in order to have you dispel conspiracies altogether. Don’t fall for it. Keep your focus and identify the real conspiracy of Satanic globalism as the world stage is being set for the Antichrist and his followers.
Speaking under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the wise king Solomon speaks on the power of money in Ecclesiastes 10:19: “A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.” He ought to know, for he had a good share of it. Expressing basically the same truth, a more modern saying would be “Follow the money” or “If it doesn’t make sense, there’s a buck in it.” Paul makes this point quite well in I Timothy 6:10 when he tells the young preacher that “the love of money is the root of all evil.” The Bible has much more to say about money, but in our efforts to make some sense out of the new world order scheme, the above two verses alone will put us on the right trail: the money trail.
The money trail takes us back to eighteenth century Germany to a man named Mayer Amschel Bauer, the firstborn son of Moses Amschel Bauer. Mayer was born in 1743. His father was a money lender and goldsmith who settled in Frankfurt-On-The-Main and opened up his financial business. Above the door of his business he placed a large red shield. In German, the words “red shield” would be “rot schild” or “roth schild.” Run the words together and you have “Rothschild,” which is what Mayer changed his name to in later years.
This first Rothschild learned a great deal about finance, and before thirty years of age he was “doing business” with such heads
of state as Prince William of Hanau. In fact, he put the Hess- Hanau coat of arms on the front of his shop and advertised the fact that his business was an appointment of Prince William. Big money was now in bed with big brother.
Rothschild married a seventeen year old lady named Gutele Schnaper. They had a large family of five sons and five daughters (ten other children died). The sons were named Amschel, Salomon, Nathan, Kalmann (also called Carl) and Jacob (also called James). Each of the sons grew up to become financial wizards.
In 1780, Mayer entered into a partnership with his two eldest sons, Amschel and Salomon. Strict rules were established, including a rule which allowed only Rothschild family members to oversee the key branches of their growing financial empire. In the early years, the Rothschilds even practiced inter-family marriage (first cousins, second cousins, etc) in order to further build up and guard the family fortune.
Prince William, one of Europe’s most vile loan sharks, had a financial worth of some $200,000,000, largely because he would rent out troops to most any nation. Rothschild became an agent for William and eventually obtained (some say “stole”) the equivalent of $3,000,000 from him. This was done in a “more businesslike” manner, to quote the Jewish Encyclopedia of 1905. With this money, Mayer Amschel Rothschild expanded his business and became the first international banker.
James Perloff explains the profitability of being an
international banker in his book The Shadows of Power:
An “international” banker is one who, among other things, lends money to the governments of nations. Lending to governments can be profitable for several reasons. First, a government borrows far more than an individual or business; second, a government has unique tools with which it can guarantee repayment—such as the levying of taxes; third, a government may requite its debt through a medium more desirable than cash—by granting the banker certain privileges, for example, or giving him a say in policy.
James Perloff, The Shadows of Power:
The Council on Foreign Relations and the American Decline
(Appleton, WI: Western Islands, 1988), p. 19
Perloff then points out the very thing that would bring any
nation to the point of needing to borrow money from an international banker:
No turn of events is more lucrative for an international banker than war—because nothing generates more government borrowing faster.
Rothschild, having been an agent of Prince William and his “rent-an-army” business, was well aware of this, so loaning money to nations at war became a Rothschild family tradition. In fact, loaning money to both sides of a conflict would prove to be twice as profitable.
Writing on the Rothschild sons, Frederic Morton states that they “became alive at the market place” and that “success itched in their bones.” (Frederic Morton, The Rothchilds: Portrait of a Dynasty (New York, NY: Kodansha America, Inc., 1998), p. 30)
Mayer tended to be more gentle, according to Morton, often finding himself trying to rein in his sons and balance them somewhat. Evidently, he didn’t try hard enough. All five of the boys became self-serving demoniacs obsessed with money and power. They branched out over Europe with Nathan heading up the London branch, James (Jacob) went to Paris, Kalmann (Carl) worked the bank in Naples, Salomon in Vienna, and Amschel was placed at the Berlin branch. From these strategic locations, the five “arrows” of Mayer Amschel Rothschild would rule Europe.
For the many stories illustrating the actual power accumulated by Rothschild wealth, the reader should consult Morton’s book. Here we’ll only mention what is necessary to show how international banking became the way to conquer nations.
The 1800’s were the booming years for the Rothschilds. Through their various financial schemes, mostly international banking (loaning money to governments), “the Family” (as they were often called) managed to pile up an estimated wealth of some 400,000,000 pounds, or 6,000,000,000 dollars in American money. That’s six billion dollars before the twentieth century began! By modern standards, that would undoubtedly equal between fifty and one hundred billion dollars today, maybe more. In other words, Bill Gates would rank as a servant boy alongside Rothschild money and power.
June 20, 1815, is a memorable day in Rothschild history. All of England had been waiting for news concerning the battle with Napoleon. On June 20, Nathan Rothschild headed to the London
Exchange with the news that Napoleon had been defeated at Waterloo, thus securing England’s place as the predominant world power. There was just one catch: Nathan didn’t tell anyone, or at least not the investors. Rothschild couriers had brought him the news before the London press had reported it. Throughout the day Nathan stood by the notorious “Rothschild pillar” in the exchange and signaled his agents to sell consols (British government bonds). They did so all the day long. This drove the market downward as investors grew scared thinking that Rothschild knew that Napoleon had won and that he was getting out of the market before it fell. This Rothschild generated fear turned into a panic, and investors began dumping their consols on the market, thus causing its value to plummet. Finally, at the last moment, guess who decided to start buying consols? You got it! Nathan Rothschild made “the big scoop,” and moments later the real news broke that Napoleon had been defeated at Waterloo. The British consol then soared in value, and “the Family” soared in wealth and power, taking control of the British economy in a single day. Three years later they took France. This sort of profiteering became a Rothschild standard, or, as Morton writes on page 78 of his book, “The history of Rothschild is the history of other people’s Waterloos. ”
With their growing wealth the five brothers loaned out more money, thus further empowering themselves while enslaving Europe. After all, let us not forget Proverbs 22:7: “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” Money meant power, and the sons of Mayer couldn’t get enough of it. Step by step, the Rothschild clan seized control of the European economy one nugget at a time. Finally, they cast their eyes beyond Europe to the most tempting nugget of all—the United States of America.
Actually, it wasn’t so much America’s wealth that tempted the banking brothers as it was her threat to their own long-term plans. By the 1830’s, the United States had lived as an independent nation under a constitutional republic (not a democracy) for roughly half a century. We were a free and industrious people, and many throughout the world were beginning to view America as the promised land. This naturally troubled the Rothschild-led European bankers. Newspapers such as the Times of London began to publish articles that spoke of the
need to destroy America before she became the predominant world power and European monarchies became obsolete:
If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic . . . should become indurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe. (emphasis added)
Quoted from the Times of London in Des Griffin’s Fourth Reich of the Rich, p. 188.
As the above quote reveals, America’s refusal to become indebted to the international bankers meant that she would control her own economy, pay off her own debts, and prosper enormously as a nation. This in turn would bring more immigrants to her shores, including “the brains and wealth of all nations.”
The British had already attempted to ruin the American economy at the time of the Revolutionary War by flooding the American Colonies with huge amounts of counterfeit currency. This helped to devalue our money to such a degree that by 1780 the Continental bills were worth only about one fortieth of their 1775 value, and by 1781 paper currency had become obsolete. The Colonists survived and won our independence, but the European bankers were not about to give up. One way or another, America had to be destroyed.
In 1848, Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto called for the “centralization of credit” through a “national bank” in the most advanced countries, yet this was not a new idea because this is what the Europeans had under the direction of the Rothschild-led international bankers. What was new was the notion of permanently establishing such a system in America.
Several decades before Marx’s Manifesto, and well over a century before Warburg’s Federal Reserve System, cries for a national bank were heard throughout our newly formed Government. With seemingly good intentions, yet bad long term financial policies, Robert Morris and Alexander Hamilton led the way in the establishment of the Bank of North America in 1781.
This came about in spite of much opposition from Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. However, the Bank of North America was not recognized by most of the independent states, and it ceased to exist in 1790.
Our U.S. Constitution was ratified in the year 1789, and the very first Article made it clear (and still makes it clear) that only Congress has the power
To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.
The Constitution of the United States, Article I, Section 8
Congress is not authorized by the Constitution to delegate this responsibility to anyone else, and certainly not to private individuals with private interests. Yet, to this very day our elected officials ignore the very founding document that they swear to uphold by allowing the privately owned and never- audited Federal Reserve System to control the nation’s currency.
In 1789, with the Bank of North America on its way out, President Washington was persuaded by Robert Morris to appoint Alexander Hamilton Secretary of the Treasury. The following year, Hamilton proposed to Congress the need for a national bank. It would be called the Bank of the United States. It would have the power to issue currency, and it would be eighty percent owned by private investors. The private investor aspect was a little tricky. It carried with it the nice sounding ring that this would be a bank of the people (by the people, for the people, etc.), yet enough of the politicians got the main point: this is your chance to make some big bucks!
Jefferson hit the ceiling. He argued strongly against Secretary Hamilton’s central bank scheme, as did other constitutionalists, claiming that it was unconstitutional and that it would bring the United States into bondage to private interests (Pro. 22:7!). Unfortunately, even then there were enough self-servers in Congress to see the opportunities for personal gain in the plan. President Washington was pressured into signing the bill into law in February of 1791. About Hamilton and Morris’ national bank, Encyclopedia Britannica states that, “A substantial interest in the bank was also purchased by Europeans.” No kidding! Now, just who in Europe do you suppose would have an interest in American banking? Well, they enjoyed their “substantial interest” for a number of years, as did many American politicians.
Hamilton later expressed regret for having pushed for the central bank, and he recommended to the new Treasury Secretary that the treasury ought to produce its own currency. The Bank of the United States was chartered for twenty years. The charter was not renewed in 1811 because many states had refused to recognize the authority of a central bank. Instead, many “State Banks” had been established, so Congress allowed things to proceed without a central bank.
Naturally, this upset certain Europeans who had a “substantial interest” in our banking policies. The very next year we found ourselves in another war with England, the war of 1812. There were several reasons for us going to war again, all pointing to the fact that England simply refused to acknowledge our independence and we needed to “reestablish our national character” (to quote Andrew Jackson). However, as Griffin points out on page 184, the international bankers had not taken a leave of absence:
Many historians realize that the war of 1812—the second war with England—was primarily the result of efforts by the international financial interests to create chaos on the American business scene, and thus force the United States Congress to grant another charter to the bank of the United States. After a bitter struggle they succeeded in their aim!
The second Bank of the United States was chartered for twenty more years in 1816. Since things are customarily “done differently the second time,” the new central bank was created with broader powers than the first one.
Andrew Jackson was elected President in 1828, and he served two terms. It was on his watch that the charter for the second Bank of the United States would expire. “Old Hickory” upset the central bank crowd on July 10, 1832, with one of the most controversial vetoes in Presidential history. Jackson was stubborn and often very hot-tempered, and some even referred to him as “King Andrew I,” but to this day Andrew Jackson remains the only U.S. President to reduce the national debt to zero. Evidently, a “king” was needed in order to deliver a blow to the devilish international bankers.
But it wasn’t a death blow. They came knocking time and time again. With a divide and conquer strategy, they had a “substantial interest” in the War Between the States (Civil War). Surely with so much war expense accumulating the U.S.
Government would have to turn to the European bankers for help. But this didn’t happen because Lincoln and Congress bailed the Government out by issuing some $450,000,000 worth of treasury notes.
Then the National Banking Act was allowed to slip through Congress in 1863. This gave private interest certain powers over currency, and the international bankers had their foot in the door once again.
With their foot in the door, the big bankers not only used the next fifty years to pocket a sizable amount of American money, they also had plenty of time to prep America to fall for a permanently established central bank. Twenty year charters just wouldn’t do. The hook had to be baited with a permanent central bank. Of course, it couldn’t be called that. In fact, it couldn’t be called a bank at all, only a “system.” After enduring two depressions in a twenty year period (1890 and 1907) and after being kept in the dark on the newest central bank scheme, the American people would gladly take the bait.
In John 3:19, the Lord Jesus says that “. . . men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” Few events in history can better illustrate that truth than the events that occurred on the night of November 22, 1910. On this night a small group of men boarded a sealed railway car at Hoboken, New York, and headed southward to a hunting club in Georgia at a place called Jekyl Island.
But this was no normal hunting expedition. Then again, these weren’t normal men, and the Jekyl Island Hunt Club was no normal hunting club. The island belonged to a group of millionaires, one being J.P. Morgan, and the club’s membership was made up of millionaires. The club was considered off limits for several days while the suspicious group from New York met there in secret.
Senator Nelson Aldrich led the group. Aldrich was a central
bank advocate who had just spent two years leading American bankers and politicians around Europe (at tax payer expense) in an effort to sell them on European central banking practices. His daughter married John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and his grandson, Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller, would be Vice President of the United States in 1974. The senator also brought along his private secretary.
Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, A. Piatt Andrew, attended the Jekyl Island meeting, as did New York bankers Charles D. Morton, Frank Vanderlip, and Henry P. Davidson. J.P. Morgan Company’s Benjamin Strong was there, and a European immigrant (ah, yes!) by the name of Paul Warburg attended.
Warburg earned $500,000 per year working as a partner in the Rothschild-linked New York banking house Kuhn, Loeb and Company. He had been an associate of the Rothschilds before migrating to America in 1902.
With a guest list such as this, and with such secrecy shrouding the whole Jekyl Island event, one could easily figure that these men were hunting for something more than ducks. Indeed they were. After nine days the men would leave the island with the plan that would later become the Federal Reserve System, a permanent central bank. Twenty-five years later, Frank Vanderlip of the National City Bank of New York (a Rockefeller bank) would confess that he had been involved in a conspiracy at Jekyl Island, a conspiracy that led to the establishment of the Federal Reserve System:
[T]here was an occasion, near the close of 1910, when I was as secretive—indeed as furtive—as any conspirator . . . I do not feel it is any exaggeration to speak of our secret expedition to Jekyl [sic] Island as the occasion of the actual conception of what eventually became the Federal Reserve System . . .
James Perloff, The Shadows of Power, p. 22.
Perloff references Vanderlip’s Saturday Evening Post article, “Farm Boy to Financer,” February 9, 1935, pp. 25, 70
Although Aldrich was the leader of the conspiring group, it was Paul Warburg who supplied the brainpower and drew up the plan. Warburg made it clear to all that the plan had to be devised in such a way as to hide the fact that it would create a central bank. This was to be done by establishing a “regional” system consisting of a number of banks. He suggested four regional reserve banks to be located at separate spots in the country. This number would
eventually be changed to twelve banks, which hid the central bank scheme even better. Warburg did all he could to keep the hands of Congress off of the new bank plan by suggesting that the administrators of the bank be approved by the President, not by Congress. This made the whole thing unconstitutional since Congress alone had been given such power by our founders.
After the Jekyl Island meeting, the push for a national bank actually came in two steps. Step number two wouldn’t have been necessary if the first step had worked, but it didn’t.
The first step was the Aldrich Plan (more properly called “the Wall Street Plan” by Congressman Charles Lindbergh, Sr., father of the famous aviator). The bank panic of 1907 had set the stage for some legislative action to improve banking practices and insure deposits, so the Jekyl Island “Hunt Club” was pretty optimistic about their plan making its way through Congress. However, opposition did arise, especially from Lindbergh. Then the Republicans, who had made the Aldrich Plan part of their platform, lost control of the House of Representatives in 1910. They went on to lose the Senate and the Presidency in 1912, and the plan from Jekyl Island never came to a Congressional vote.
Time for step number two had come. The bankers decided that the Republicans were not going to be able to get the plan through, so they turned to the Democrats. The fact that the Democrat plan would be basically the same as the Republicans’ recent Aldrich Plan didn’t seem to matter as long as it wasn’t called by the same name (Isa. 5:20). What the bankers needed was a good Democrat figurehead to carry the plan for them.
Republican President William Howard Taft would probably have been reelected in 1912, but then Theodore Roosevelt jumped into the Presidential race as a third party candidate. Having already served as a Republican President from 1901 through 1908, he naturally drew a large amount of votes from Taft, thus dividing the party votes and allowing the Democratic candidate to win the election. That Democrat was Woodrow Wilson.
The following year the big bankers got their way. Two planks of Marx’s Communist Manifesto were installed in America by the establishment of the Federal Reserve System and the income tax. Both were promoted by Senator Aldrich.
The Federal Reserve System was designed to give the appearance of being a system of regional banks rather than a central bank, but it is the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors, not the regional banks, who control the Jekyl Island Monster, and it is the world bankers who control the Board of Governors.
The Secrets of the Federal Reserve by Eustace Mullins is one of the best documented works available on the subject at hand. Mullins not only exposes the Federal Reserve System as being a secret, privately owned, central bank, he also quotes from those who were bitterly opposed to the plan. One such opponent was Congressman Charles Lindberg, Sr. On the very day that Congress rushed the Federal Reserve Act through legislation (catching many legislators off guard just before the Christmas break, which was against traditional practice), Congressman Lindbergh said,
This Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this bill (he did the following day), the invisible government by the monetary power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately, but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed (it came in 1929’s stock market crash) . . . The greatest crime in Congress is its currency system. The worst legislation crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking bill. (parenthesis added)
Mullins, Eustace. The Secrets of the Federal Reserve (Staunton, VA: Bankers Research Institute, 1983), p. 28
Commenting on the events of that same day, Mr. Mullins writes on page 29:
History proved that on that day the Constitution ceased to be the governing covenant of the American people, and our liberties were handed over to a small group of international bankers.
Indeed, the Constitution did cease to exist, or at least in any practical sense, because the legislators simply ignored the fact that it authorizes only Congress “to coin money” and to “regulate the value thereof.” Congress is not authorized by the Constitution to delegate this authority to anyone else, yet they did so on December 22, 1913, and President Wilson signed it into law the next day.
If one should doubt the real intentions of the Federal Reserve’s founders, he only has to take a look at its first Board of Governors. President Wilson claimed that he was allowed to appoint only one board member, while the others were chosen by the New York Bankers. Of the seven members, Wilson appointed
a Princeton trustee and businessman, Thomas J. Jones. One man appointed by the bankers was Adolph C. Miller, an economist from the Rockefeller-funded University of Chicago and J. P. Morgan-funded Harvard University. F. A. Delano was appointed. He was a relative of Franklin D. Roosevelt who had taken over a number of railroads for Warburg’s Kuhn, Loeb and Company. Paul Warburg was also appointed to sit on the board (Why not, since he drew up the plan?). Secretary of Treasury William McAdoo was appointed to the board. He was president of the Hudson-Manhattan Railroad, a Kuhn, Loeb Company. He was also President Wilson’s son-in-law. With such insiders running the nation’s central bank, one can easily see how the world bankers and super rich industrialists, rather than the American people, would become the true beneficiaries of the new system.
Throughout the 1920’s, Congressman Louis McFadden chaired the House Committee on Banking and Currency. It was his opinion that
When the Federal Reserve Act was passed, the people of these United States did not perceive that a world banking system was being set up here . . . A super-state controlled by the international bankers and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure.
A. Ralph Epperson. The Unseen Hand (Tucson, AZ: Publius Press, 1985), p. 182
While the Federal Reserve System was in the making, the January 19, 1911, issue of Nation Magazine pointed out the
attempts of the insiders to keep its true character a secret:
The name of Central Bank is carefully avoided, but the ‘Federal Reserve Association,’ the name given to the proposed central organization, is endowed with the powers and responsibilities of a European central bank.
When the monster from Jekyl Island took control of our country’s money, the national debt was only about one billion dollars ($1,000,000,000). Today it is over twenty-eight trillion dollars ($28,000,000,000,000). That is, our national debt is 28,000 times greater today (2021) than it was only a century ago. No American President since that time has seriously faced this
growing problem. It is considered normal in national politics to run a “deficit” (spend more than the Government takes in), and it is considered good for a President to “balance the budget” (spend only what is taken in). Very few even mention the national debt anymore, much less paying it off. Since the year 2000, the national debt has increased from five trillion dollars to over twenty-eight trillion dollars. It has more than doubled since 2010!
The international bankers rake in billions of American dollars every year in interest payments alone while the national debt grows larger and the American people become more enslaved to “the system” (Pro. 22:7). Couple this with the fact that our government leaders have been practicing Keynesian economics for the past eight decades (government needs to stimulate and regulate the economy, even if it means sinking the nation further into debt), and it isn’t hard to see that a day of reckoning is coming. This day of reckoning will make the 1929 stock market crash look like a fender bender. There will be a far greater depression than the one of the 1930’s. In fact, the next crash may usher in the Great Tribulation (Mat. 24:21), since America is the predominant world power and the Federal Reserve is a world lender.
It was none other than Mayer Amschel Rothschild who once said, “Give me control of a nation’s money, and I care not who makes her laws.” The only cure for the coming disaster (or, as Larry Burkett called it, The Coming Economic Earthquake), is for Congress to declare the entire Federal Reserve System unconstitutional, dissolve it, and then start paying off our national debt. That, of course, is not going to happen. Since the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt the Federal Reserve has been further empowered, and there is no indication in sight that its power will ever be diminished. The Jekyl Island Monster will remain in control, and it will assist in ushering in Satan’s new world order. Consequently, the one dollar “Federal Reserve Note” is nicely decorated with a number of Satanic and pagan symbols, indicative of the devil’s coming reign of terror.
A former United Nations Assistant Secretary once made the statement that if Christ came back to earth he would first make a visit to UN headquarters to see if his “dream of human oneness” had come true. Of course, any serious student of Scripture knows very well that Jesus had no such dream. The Lord wants unity among his own children (Psa. 133:1; John 17:11, 21, 22), but most people in the world are not God’s children. They are Satan’s children (John 8:44; I John 3:10), and God’s word offers no command for them to obtain “human oneness.” If Jesus paid a visit to UN headquarters, he certainly would not be looking for unity because he well knows that world unity and peace will not exist until a number of Scriptural conditions are met. The only “Jesus” who would seek unity through the UN would be “another Jesus” (II Cor. 11:4), also known as the Antichrist or “the beast” (Rev. 13). This “Jesus,” the Antichrist, will one day be very happy to see that his “dream of human oneness” has come true because he will use this human oneness to fight against the true Jesus Christ: “And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.” (Rev. 19:19) They are “gathered together” in human oneness so they can feel confident and right in waging war against God and all righteousness. That’s the end result of all “human oneness,” according to the Bible.
Think of the term United Nations for a moment. Why would nations unite? Most would suggest that nations would unite for the good cause of world peace, but the Christian can’t accept this because his Bible says that there will be no world peace until Jesus returns. So, if the nations are not uniting for peace (they only think they are), they must be uniting for something else, knowingly or unknowingly. Some 3,000 years ago God’s word told us what the nations will be up to one day: “The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have
God is the God of nations. He sets up nations, and he pulls down nations (Psa. 75:6-7; Jer. 18:7-10). God’s word, not the policies of men, will determine the end of all nations, so it is God’s word that we must believe and follow in developing our views concerning the United Nations.
According to a Pew Center Poll from June, 1999, seventy percent of Americans had a good “overall opinion” of the United Nations. At about the same time, a Gallup/USA Today poll revealed that seventy-five percent of Americans approve of U.S. soldiers taking orders from United Nations commanders. If these polls are accurate, then over seventy percent of Americans do not believe God’s word.
The faithful student of Scripture knows that the very idea of uniting nations is wicked. In the early chapters of the Bible, right after God had destroyed the world with a flood, Noah and his family were told to replenish the earth. They began doing so, as Genesis chapter ten reveals. Verse 5 says, “By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.” Verse 18: “the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.” Verse 20: “These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.” Verse 25: “in his days was the earth divided.” Verses 31-32: “These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations. These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.”
God’s plan was clear. He wanted nations to be independent of one another. In fact, the first occurrence of the word “nations” is Genesis 10:5 where nations are said to be “divided,” not united. God knows the hearts of men (Jer. 17:9), and God knows that “every man at his best state is altogether vanity” (Psa. 39:5). The last thing that unregenerate men need is unity. Of course, the UN globalist crowd doesn’t believe that men are unregenerate and “altogether vanity”, but the Bible is still true. Men are just plain wicked, so division is God’s plan for the inhabitants of planet earth.
This fundamental plan of God holds true throughout the Bible. Deuteronomy 32:7-8 says, “Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee. When the most High
divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.” Please note that God divided, God separated, and God set the bounds. God didn’t unify nations.
The New Testament does not alter this divine plan of God, as Acts chapter seventeen makes clear: “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us.” (Acts 17:26-27) Men are one blood on one planet, but there are God-ordained divisions among us. We cannot ignore this truth without reaping God’s judgment.
One who doubts this only has to read the eleventh chapter of Genesis. With Noah’s flood behind the human race, “happy days” were here again, so man began to think about unity and brotherhood, while forgetting to think about God and God’s plan. Consequently, in Genesis chapter eleven we find man trying to establish the first “united nations” in world history: “And 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 one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us 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.” (Gen. 11:1-4)
There was just one problem: they forgot God (just like the UN Charter forgot Him in 1945). They used man-made materials to promote the dreams of man. Much was said about “us” and “we, ” but nothing was said about God. Good human intentions cease to be good when God is forgotten. So what happened to this great and ancient “united nations?” Did the Lord come down and reward everyone for their good efforts? Not quite: “And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is 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. Go to, 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 thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” (Gen. 11:5-9)
Of the several great truths that we can glean from this event, one is crystal clear: God doesn’t want nations to unite. Any attempt to do so is wicked, including the organization of the United Nations in 1945. This was an evil act of rebellion against the law of God, and God himself will judge those involved. Notice the prophecy of Zephaniah 3:8: “Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” God does not allow the nations to gather so they can establish peace and unity. He allows them to gather so he can destroy them! Notice Revelation 19:15: “And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.” According to the Bible, God will one day smite the nations. He will do so because he has not authorized any form of world government, except the coming kingdom of his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. All attempts at world government are Satanic counterfeits, and God will judge them.
The 1945 UN charter states that their purpose is to
save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, . . . to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, . . . to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.
Three quarters of a century have come and gone, so have these Bible rejecting globalists saved succeeding generations from the scourge of war? No, they have not. Wars continue to this very hour because God’s word declares “wars and rumours of wars” until Jesus returns (Mat. 24:6). President Truman said that we were at the threshold of “the greatest era of peace that the world
has ever known,” yet someone forgot to tell Mayo Tse-Tung, who murdered millions of Chinese in the 1950’s. What did the UN do to stop the spread of Communism, torture, and murder in China, Russia, and Eastern Europe? What did the UN do to stop the Cambodian genocide of the 1970’s or the Rwandan genocide of 1994? What did the UN do to stop Sadaam Hussein as he rose to power in the 1980’s and used chemical warfare on his own people? Was it UN soldiers or was it US soldiers who drug Hussein out of his rat hole when he was finally captured?
Will world peace be established or maintained by the United Nations? No, because world peace is a future work of God. Man will not accomplish world peace regardless of his methods or his motives. God’s word cannot lie, so man cannot establish peace. It’s just that simple. The closest thing to peace that the UN globalists crowd will establish is a world government under a Communist dictatorship where you are forced to be peaceful toward them. This will be the “peace” of the new world order.
If that last statement seems extreme, please ponder the sworn testimony of Communist Party member Joseph Z. Kornfeder. In 1955, ten years after the founding of the United Nations, Kornfeder testified before Congress and said,
I need not be a member of the United Nations Secretariat to know that the UN “blueprint” is a Communist one. I was at the Moscow headquarters of the world Communist party for nearly three years and was acquainted with most of the top leaders ... I went to their colleges;
I learned their pattern of operations, and if I see that pattern in effect anywhere, I can recognize it.
From the point of view of its master designers meeting at Dumbarton Oaks and Bretton Woods, and which included such masterful agents as Alger Hiss, Harry Dexter White, Lauchlin Currie, and others, the UN was, and is, not a failure. They and the Kremlin masterminds behind them never intended the UN as a peace-keeping organization. What they had in mind was a fancy and colossal Trojan horse . . . aimed to serve the purpose of Communist penetration of the West. It is ingenious and deceptive.
Jasper, William. The United Nations Exposed (Appleton, WI: The John Birch Society, 2001), p. 58
Communists know the true character of the United Nations. It’s our apathetic and optimistic Americans who are so ignorant of the threat that this growing beast poses to our nation and our freedoms. In 1970, UN Secretary General U Thant praised the
former Soviet dictator Lenin by saying that his ideals of “peace” and “peaceful coexistence” were “in line with the aims of the UN Charter.”
In 1961, the Kennedy Administration set up a long and gradual plan that would decrease America’s military power and increase the power of the United Nations. This plan was called Freedom From War: The United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World. The document states that
In Stage III progressive controlled disarmament . . . would proceed to a point where no state would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened U.N. Peace Force.
Department of State Publication 7277, 1961, pp. 18-19
In 1962 the Socialist International Conference was held in Oslo, Norway. There it was stated that
The ultimate object of the parties of the Socialist International is nothing less than world government. As a first step towards it, they seek to strengthen the United Nations . . .
Martin, Rose L. The Selling of America
(Santa Monica, CA: Fidelis Publishers Inc., 1973), p. 17
Don’t let the word “socialist” throw you. Socialism is nothing more than Communism with a concealed weapon, or, as Winston Churchill once said, “Communism is Socialism with a gun at your back.” After all, the official name of the Soviet Union during the “Cold War” was the “Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.” This union “officially” ceased to exist when the Cold War ended, but in reality the U.S.S.R. is just as much a world power as ever.
Many of the leaders of the old U.S.S.R. are the present leaders of “democratic” Russia, including leader Vladimir Putin, a former KGB chief. The idea of “reform” in the Soviet Union was planned decades ago as a scheme of deception, but one can easily see from the above quote that there exists a very definite collaboration between the Soviets and the United Nations. Only the U.S.S.R. name changed in 1991. The UN allowed Gorbachev, Yeltsin, and now Putin to lead the nation, to remain in the UN, and to remain on the Security Council, even though a true change in national leadership has never occurred. It has been the Communist plan for decades to gradually strengthen the power of the United Nations, knowing all along that this globalist organization is their means of
eventually controlling the world. Jim Garrison, who was President of the Gorbachev Foundation/USA in 1995 said,
Over the next 20 to 30 years, we are going to end up with world government. It’s inevitable . . . [W]e have to empower the United Nations and . . . we have to govern and regulate human interaction.
W. Jasper, The United Nations Exposed, p. 41
They will empower the United Nations (with cooperation and assistance from the United States), and they will “govern and regulate human interaction.” Whether or not this all happens as quickly as Garrison predicted is not known, but it will happen (Rev. 13).
One of the prime targets of Satan’s UN mob is God’s sacred institution of the family. After being organized, the UN wasted little time in making their aims clear. A 1949 UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) published a document on how to best educate children who are under thirteen years of age. The document stated that
The kindergarten or infant school has a significant part to play in the child’s education. Not only can it correct many of the errors of home training, but it can prepare the child for membership . . . In the world society . . . As long as the child breathes the poisoned air of
nationalism, education in world-mindedness can produce only rather precarious results. As we have pointed out, it is frequently the family that infects the child with extreme nationalism. The school should therefore use the means described earlier to combat family attitudes that favor jingoism.
Towards World Understanding:
In the Classroom with Children Under Thirteen Years of Age, Part V, UNESCO Publication 356 (Paris: George Lang, 1949), pp. 9, 58
Are you, dear parent, trying to train up some God-fearing American children who believe in “one nation under God” and “in God we trust?” Do you want your children to grow up to love God, family and country? If so, then you are a most definite target of the United Nations because these people have no use for God, your family, or your country. God was omitted from their charter, your country’s sovereignty is under continual attack, and they count it their mission to transform your children into world citizens adapted to fit into their coming “world society.” In their eyes, you
are hindering their plans by poisoning their world citizens with nationalism.
“Just who do these people think they are?” you may be wondering. Well, let’s just ask them. Better yet, let’s ask them who they think your children are? According to a motto on an undated letterhead from the mid 1990’s, the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) believes that, “Every child is our child. ”
You have no children, according to these soldiers of Satan. It is their goal to take your children from you as much as possible and program them into fit citizens for their “world society.” This means they will have “preschool” and “daycare” programs all neatly packaged as a “convenience” for the parents. Since most parents today have bought the lie that “two working parents are required to make a living (and it is a lie—Titus 2:4-5), Satan’s agents are more than willing to assist these hard-working moms and dads by taking little Johnny off their hands for thirty to fifty hours per week. After all, he isn’t your child anyway, because every child is their child. It’s only reasonable that you allow them some “quality time” with their child.
Many parents will protest these remarks by insisting that they have a “good” day care for their children or a “good” school system, but the sad fact is that most parents know very little about the people being entrusted with their children, and they know even less about their administrative superiors. John Stormer deals with this issue in his book. Stormer asks the question,
How many Americans look behind the blue UN “seal of approval” on the UNESCO literature and materials used in American schools to build “attitudes” for “world understanding” and “world citizenship” in their sons and daughters?
J. Stormer, None Dare Call It Treason: 25 Years Later, p. 262
Obviously, not near enough, since American education has continued on a downward spiral since the mid-sixties when Stormer asked the question.
Since Satan’s plan is to establish world government, he must destroy all of our societies foundational pillars (Psa. 11:3), and the traditional family is at the top of his list.
God instituted the family in the first two chapters of the Bible. This, of course, was the traditional three part family consisting of a man, his wife and eventually children. The man and his wife
were given full authority and responsibility over their children. The parents were to produce their own children, protect their children, and then provide for them. Noah Webster gives a superb definition of the word “marriage” in his classic 1828 dictionary:
The act of uniting a man and a woman for life; wedlock; the legal union of a man and a woman for life. Marriage is a contract both civil and religious, by which the parties engage to live together in a mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. Marriage was instituted by God himself for the purpose of preventing promiscuous intercourse among the sexes, for promoting domestic felicity, and for securing the maintenance and education of children.
Satan, more than anyone, knows the above to be true. He knows that good and strong churches and governments cannot be produced without good and strong families. He knows that his coming evil empire doesn’t stand a chance if families are allowed to function as independent bodies, free from government intrusion. Families, when left to themselves, tend to produce rugged individuals with convictions, determination and a good work ethic. This is what built America, so this is what must be destroyed if Satan’s kingdom of “global citizens” is to succeed.
The United Nations adopted their Convention on the Rights of the Child (CROC) in 1989. William Jasper, a man who has researched the UN for over forty years, writes on the CROC in his book on the UN:
It proposes a massive intrusion of government into family matters.
Implementation of the CROC would radically alter the parent-child relationship, interjecting government-appointed “child advocates” between parents and children. Ultimately, it aims at stripping parents of their traditionally recognized rights to control the upbringing and education of their children and to pass on to their children their religious values and beliefs.
W. Jasper, The United Nations Exposed, p. 275
The reader might consider taking the time to go to the Internet and looking up “Convention on the Rights of the Child,” and reading through the Preamble and the fifty-four articles of the convention. One can easily see that the whole document is written with such generalities that it can be “custom fitted” by the UN authorities to match most any situation desired. The preamble speaks of the rights of all members of the “human family” without distinction of any kind, including “religion.” This means that your
godly Christian children need to be molded into Satan’s “human family” instead of God’s family of believers in Christ. The preamble promotes “social progress” and states that a child “should be afforded the necessary protection and assistance so that it can fully assume its responsibilities within the community.” In other words, if the UN authorities decide that you, the parent, are not equipping your children to be “responsible in the community,” then they will “protect” your children from you.
Failing to be “responsible in the community” could mean a number of things. Public prayer or witnessing might be irresponsible, since both tend to show “disrespect” for other religious views. Failure to socialize with or date children of other races or beliefs might be irresponsible since this constitutes racism and bigotry in the eyes of most globalists. Homeschooling would likely be irresponsible since it supposedly teaches children that they are “better” than other children and that they are “too good” for the government school system. This creates “class envy” and slows down “social progress.” Taking children to worship in fundamental Christian churches might also be termed irresponsible. After all, hearing a grown man yelling about hell, fire, judgment, Satan, evil, sin, repenting, confessing, putting away evil companions and influences, and being not conformed to this world would likely be interpreted by the UN crowd as influences that prevent the child from being “responsible in the community.”
Just from the CROC’s preamble alone, the reader can easily see how this instrument of the UN can be used in the future to place some very tight restraints on the family, especially the Christian family. The document defines a child as anyone under eighteen years of age, and it never defines a family as a man, his wife, and their children, although the word “family” occurs nineteen times in the document. Interestingly, the words “father,” “wife,” “son” and “daughter” are not found in the document, yet these words are found over 4,000 times in the Bible. The word “mother” is found two hundred and forty-five times in the Bible, yet the word occurs only once in the CROC document, and even then it occurs in the context of “appropriate pre-natal and postnatal health care for mothers” (plural), not in the context of a child needing the love and care of his own personal mother (singular). The word love occurs only once. As one would expect, the words “God,” “Jesus,” “Bible,” “church” and “holiness” never occur, nor do the words “sin,” “judgment,” “hell” or “heaven.” The words “State” or “States” are found well over one hundred times.
Unbelievable as it may seem, we might live to see the day when armed UN thugs take Christian children away from their true parents and place them into the homes of selected “parents,” perhaps even sodomite “parents” who are more “qualified” to help them become more “responsible in the community.” I am not making any predictions, and I am not attempting to frighten anyone, but we must remember that Satan is the god of this world (II Cor. 4:4), and he hates serious Christians with a passion. This is why God commands us to pray for those in authority (I Tim. 2:1-3). However, he never tells us to trust them. “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.” (Psa. 118:8-9)
Jasper (The United Nation Exposed) states that the UN has programs for forced abortion, mandatory sexual orientation promoting homosexuality, out-lawing independent schooling and homeschooling, population relocation, as well as others. The fact that these things are not presently happening on a global scale does not mean that they will never happen. This information tells us what the UN has in mind and what they will do when they are given full authority as a world government.
The United Nations also has plans for your guns, your private property rights, and your right of innocence until proven guilty in a speedy trial. That is, the US Constitution is one of the greatest enemies of the United Nations. That’s why President Trump and other great Americans are regularly scorned by the globalist- minded socialists and communists on the left, namely the Washington elites and the mainstream media. In spite of any “good intentions” that these people might have, they are under the rule of Satan and they are helping him to set the stage for the Great Tribulation and the Beast.
In the mid 1600’s, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz, a German philosopher, stated that he could rule the world if he were given control of its education. During the next century, Prussian monarchs would be the first to adopt government education as a popular way of producing and controlling fit “children of the State.”
Upon seeing the effectiveness of government education, other European nations began following the same path. By the time of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, government schools had become commonplace among dictatorial nations.
When the Communists came to power in Russia, one of their first acts was to drive a wedge between children and their families by establishing government-controlled schools.
The same was true with Adolf Hitler in Germany. When German children entered the Grundschule at the age of six, they entered a training ground for becoming loyal followers of Nazi ideals.
If Satan was to prepare America for his new world order, molding young minds was a must. Government controlled schools would be absolutely essential, yet most early Americans felt very differently. We had fought and won our independence, and we were now prospering in our newfound freedom (1776-1840). The general opinion among most Americans was that the education of children was a family matter in which government had no business intruding. Government involvement in education would also mean higher taxes, another unpopular idea in early America.
Nevertheless, the push for government education was on because it was essential for Lucifer’s plan. Liberal Massachusetts eventually established a state board of education in 1837. Over the next few decades, other states would also begin to meddle in education, including New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Connecticut. By the turn of the twentieth century, Americans had grown accustomed to the idea of government schools. A number of educational organizations had been established, including the National Education Association (1857). With all the educational bricks in one pile, Satan now needed a man to apply the fake new world slime for mortar (Gen. 11:3; Eze. 13:10-16).
That man was an atheist named John Dewey. A signer of the original Humanist Manifesto, Dewey viewed education as a means of shaping and controlling society. While most Americans believed that education’s purpose was to equip young people that they might reach the highest potential in their individual lives, Dewey chose to use education as a way of producing certain kinds of citizens for a “better society.”
The first affirmation of the Humanist Manifesto that Dewey signed in 1933 was a direct assault on the first verse of the Bible.
As we know (and as most people in 1933 knew), the first verse of the Bible says, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” This was not suitable to Dewey and the other manifesto signers who rejected the existence of God and accepted a self-existing universe along with Darwin’s theory of evolution. The Humanist Manifesto says that “Religious humanists regard the universe as self-existing and not created.” Having stated that the universe was not created, their next step was to rid man of a Creator. Their second statement declared that man “has emerged as a result of a continuous process.” This was a “safe” position to take since Darwin’s theory of evolution was now an accepted scientific “fact.” The 1933 manifesto went on to reject the idea that humans have eternal souls, and they declared that it is more needful to be concerned with “the here and now” instead of exercising faith in “unreal hopes and wishful thinking.” This was Dewey’s crowd. He was “America’s foremost philosopher and educator,” and he was a Bible rejecting fool (Psa. 14:1).
Dewey was born in 1859 in Burlington, Vermont. While in college in the late 1870’s, he became interested in philosophy and how it could be applied to changing society. Dewey did not believe in absolutes. Nothing, in his eyes, could be a settled final authority or foundation for life. Life was a continually changing process, so there was no room for absolutes such as God, the Bible, then Ten Commandments, or salvation through Christ. This he learned from G.W.F. Hegel, the nineteenth century German philosopher.
After being rejected for the graduate program at John Hopkins University, Dewey began a teaching career. By 1904, he had earned such a reputation with his writings and experiments that he was asked to assume the chair of education at New York’s Columbia University. Dewey became a teacher of teachers, and the Columbia Teacher’s College became a training school for teachers around the world. From this position, and through his extensive travels and writings, his radical views would indoctrinate educators throughout the world.
With Rockefeller money, Dewey founded the Progressive Education Association in 1919. In the years to follow, he and others would poison educational systems with their progressive philosophy in hopes of molding minds for a new world order.
John Dewey was so opposed to absolutes and so supportive of “open-mindedness” that he readily admitted not having any real
Although I have raised large questions, it is not my ambition to answer them.
Dave Breece. Seven Men Who Rule the Word from the Grave
(Chicago, IL: Moody Press, 1990), pp. 161
That’s the whole point in Dewey’s philosophy: throw out all the real answers in life, and replace them with endless psychobabble that answers nothing and helps no one. That’s one of the reasons for God warning us about philosophy in Colossians 2:8: “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
The mission of Dewey and company was simply social change. They wanted to change society by shaking off of the old way of individualism with its absolute morals, absolute truth and absolute salvation, and they wanted to usher in a new age of collectivism, experimentation and open-mindedness toward new ideas (which means closed-mindedness toward God and the Bible). Professing to have real answers was a sin. The whole point was, and still is, to produce an entire generation of socially programmed robots who have no God, no Bible, and therefore no moral, intellectual, or spiritual foundation on which to stand. Such a generation would live for “the here and now” without acknowledging any personal accountability to God. This brainwashed generation would view life as a continual experiment in an ever-changing society. Anyone foolish enough to cling to the old paths would be in a tiny minority and would be looked upon as right wing extremists and religious fanatics. That’s what the Deweyites wanted, and that is exactly what has happened.
The old paths are gone. The fundamental teaching of “the three R’s” is history. Sure, academics are still taught, but only in the greater context of creating a “social mind.” There are exceptions, of course, but the general purpose of modern American education is to mold children for Satan’s “global society” where there are no absolutes.
The great preacher and statesmen Bob Jones, Sr. once said that he had never seen a successful man who had not at some point come under the dominating power of a great truth. In Dewey’s spaced-out world, there are no great truths, only ideas and experiments; therefore progressive education has produced a generation of losers.
Progressive education has produced high school “graduates” who cannot half read. Of those who can read, only a minority of them can read intelligently enough to comprehend and apply the reading material. Therefore, such people usually see no point in reading anything other than a brief tweet, a Facebook meme, or the latest snipe scrolling down a gadget screen from CNN, MSNBC or FOX.
Today’s employers have to endure incompetent employees who cannot learn their jobs well enough to perform them without constant supervision or correction. In fact, one study has shown that American businesses lose over $25,000,000,000 annually due to the poor reading and writing skills of their workers (Sykes, Charles J. Dumbing Down Our Kids (New York, NY: St. Martin’s Griffin, 1995), p. 22.).
Families are ripped to shreds because parents lack the fundamental moral qualities that keep couples together and keep them focused on enduring hardships in order to make their family a success. Progressive education has produced parents who cannot control their children and who will not learn from others (since there is no “right” way to do it). Dewey’s philosophy has produced theological “doctors” who cannot effectively preach, teach or write. It has produced a society of voters who are easily manipulated by catchy buzz words and empty campaign promises because they lack the soundness of mind to think intelligently and find the hidden truth. It has produced an America that now accepts and legalizes sodomy because our citizens cannot understand the threat that this sin poses to our national existence. Like a powerful drug, progressive education has literally “fried” the brains of a high percentage of American citizens, rendering them unable to even see the nation’s problems, much less fix them.
There were others who helped to give American education this new framework. New “thinkers” such as Horace Mann and Jane Adams certainly contributed, but it was John (no absolutes) Dewey and followers such as George Counts and Harold Rugg who administered the overdose that would gradually destroy the whole educational system by socializing the minds of America’s youth. Reading, writing, and arithmetic are no longer the fundamental objectives of government education. The creating of “a new social mind” has been the plan for over eighty years. Rugg authored a number of “social studies” textbooks and influenced millions of young minds. His work was later replaced by the work
of other authors who were more subtle in their tactics, but the job was still done, and that’s one of the reasons for our present educational mess and the millions of ill-informed young voters who have given us the likes of Barak Hussein Obama and Sleepy Joe Biden (with the help of Dominion Voting Systems and mail-in ballots, of course).
If one should doubt that Satan is using America’s educational system to help prepare minds for his new world order, he has only to consult the National Education Association’s 2000-2001 Resolutions where this mammoth teacher’s union gives its support for disarmament and for the world government-minded United Nations. But this is nothing new for the NEA. As far back as 1946, their Journal stated that
at the very top of all the agencies which will ensure the coming of world government must stand the school, the teacher, and the organized profession (emphasis added)
W. Jasper. The United Nations Exposed, p. 269
Interesting. Why should the NEA, a teacher’s union, be concerned with world government? Why should the National Education Association be concerned with the establishment of an international government? Maybe it is because of a series of meetings that were held by the Carnegie Foundation in 1908 and 1909. According to Newswatch magazine, the minute book for the Carnegie Foundation reveals that during these years this tax exempt foundation held discussions on how to best change the lifestyle of the nation. It was decided that war would be the best way. It was further decided that gaining control of the U.S. State Department would be the best way to involve America in such a war. After their first war was over (WWI), they decided that the only way to keep their plan on track was to control American education. The Carnegie Foundation would work for change in international relations, while the Rockefeller Foundation would do their work on domestic issues (Newswatch Magazine, May-June, 1990). Consequently, one should not be surprised to discover that both foundations have been large contributors to the NEA and other radical educational groups.
In the book Dumbing Down Our Kids, author Charles J. Sykes states on page 236 that
The NEA also maintains a tight hold on American schools by controlling the portals of admission. The union works closely (some would say incestuously) with teacher’s colleges to maintain a professional monopoly on entrance to the teaching profession.
The NEA web site states that they have “a long, proud history as the nation’s leading organization committed to advancing the cause of public education.” Notice how the NEA is primarily interested in the advancement of “public” education, not education in general. Karl Marx would be very pleased with the NEA. After all, the tenth plank in his 1848 Communist Manifesto called for “Free education for all children in public schools.” (emphasis added) On the NEA web site, the word “public” is used in connection with schools, education and institutions several times, yet the rights of private schools and homeschools are not mentioned even once. Nor does the web site mention the fact that the NEA supports the globalistic efforts of the UN. In speaking of its “long, proud history,” no mention is made of the fact that the NEA has been a leading promoter of John Dewey’s progressive education that has done so much damage to the minds of millions of Americans. In their deliberate omissions, they’ve also omitted telling anyone that they have a record of supporting abortion, access to birth control without parental consent, a nuclear freeze, and education promoting global citizenship. The web site states that the NEA has over two million members who work at every level of education “from pre-school to university graduate programs” and that they have affiliates in every state and in thousands of local communities across the nation. With such a massive membership base, Satan will continue to use the NEA as a key player in setting the global stage for the Great Tribulation.
Well over 400 years ago, Martin Luther, the great German reformer, warned future generations of the consequences of expelling God from our educational systems:
I am much afraid that the universities will prove to be the gates of Hell, unless they diligently labour to explain the Holy Scriptures and engrave them upon the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution where men are not unceasingly occupied with the word of God must become corrupt.
They have become corrupt, and they have become “the gates of hell.” They have become “an agency working for the barbarization of youth,” to quote Professor George Reiseman of Pepperdine University. Like sheep being led to the slaughter, America’s young people are being led right into the bloody hands of Satan. Parents should seriously consider pulling their children out of the government school system and enrolling them in good private schools or take up homeschooling. After all, why should you send your children to a place where God, the Bible, and Jesus Christ are unwelcome? Prayer was banned by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1962, and the Ten Commandments were banned in 1980.
Colleges, the main focus of Luther’s prediction, have also forsaken God. A high percentage (some say as high as eightyeight percent) of the first one hundred American colleges were founded for the purpose of training men for the gospel ministry. Harvard, founded in 1636, had Puritan affiliations. Yale was founded as a Congregationalist school in 1701. Princeton was founded as a Presbyterian school in 1746. Brown was a Baptist college, founded in 1764. There are others, of course.
John Witherspoon, first president of Princeton University, once said, “Cursed be all learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ.” When is the last time a Princeton president made a statement like that? That probably was the last time.
Harvard’s Rules and Precepts, observed in the year 1642, included a statement that every student was to be “pressed” to “consider well that the maine end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life, John 17:3, and therefore to lay Christ at the bottome, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and Learning.” If a Harvard professor tried to “press” that on a student today, he’d be fired for religious discrimination and bigotry. In fact, this one quote by a modern Harvard professor will show how higher education has made a 180 degree turn over the past three centuries. This is from Dr. Chester M. Pierce:
Every child in America who enters school with an allegiance toward our elected officials, toward our founding fathers, toward our institutions, toward the preservation of this form of government . . . all of this proves the children are sick, because the truly well individual is one who has rejected all of those things and is what I would call the true international child of the future.
Eakman, B.K. Educating for the ‘New World Order’ (Portland, OR: Halcyon House, 1991), p. 218
As the cigarette ad says, “You’ve come a long way, baby. ” Yes, a long way down! Fifty-two percent of Harvard's seventeenth century graduates became ministers. How many Harvard ministers do you know today?
In 1962, prayer in the schools was outlawed. In 1963, Bible reading in the schools was outlawed. Then God’s Ten Commandments were outlawed from being posted in a “public” school in 1980. If you leave your children in the government school system, they will either be socialized into “global citizens” or they will be looked upon as outcasts and possibly outlawed just like prayer and God’s word. Satan’s system plans to either conform them or condemn them. If you are a parent, home schooling or private schooling should be a serious consideration.
Yes, the heading is politically incorrect, but that’s only because the politically correct crowd acquired their views of history from government schools, liberal professors, and the liberal media. The threat of Communism became a reality in the first half of the twentieth century, and it was allowed to continue throughout the second half and on into the twenty-first century.
How many times have you witnessed your elected officials taking a weak position regarding our nation’s enemies? Well, actually, we would be much better off as a nation if our leaders were weak. What most perceive to be a weakness on the part of our leaders is often due to a hidden agenda, not a lack of “guts.” You are interested in defending America; they are often interested in bringing us closer to a world government. Why else would Communism still exist?
One would do well to examine American policies, trends, and events in light of what Marx and Engels wrote over one hundred and sixty years ago in their Communist Manifesto. In “the most advanced countries,” this document called for ten specific goals to be reached, commonly referred to as the “ten planks” of the Communist Manifesto. They are as follows:
1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5. Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing of cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc.
Even the most casual observer can easily see that our nation’s leaders are assisting in the adaptation of Marxist ideals in America. The America that we know today bears very little resemblance to the America of our forefathers. The time period running from Woodrow Wilson to Barak Hussein Obama was a century of major “change” in America (Pro. 24:21!), and the changes brought us more in line with the Communist Manifesto than with the U.S. Constitution. Why? Because Satan’s new world order will be a Communist world order, so America must adapt. In the years ahead, more changes will occur until America is fully prepared, or fully “ripe” (to quote Lenin).
World War I had supposedly been fought to “make the world safe for democracy,” but it was the Communists, not the free world, who gained the most from the war. In the midst of the chaos of the war, Nikolai Lenin, a radical Marxist living in Switzerland, moved to Russia and led the Bolshevik Revolution to a successful takeover of the largest country on earth (his real name was Vladimir Ulich Ulanov).
Lenin, like most other revolutionaries, had some help. The Germans found it expedient to help out since a Russian revolution would mean one less enemy for them (since Russia was sided with the allies against Germany). Some New York bankers (!) threw in
some financial aid for Lenin and the Bolsheviks, and Jacob Schiff of the Kuhn, Loeb, and Company (!) heavily assisted the revolution with a generous $20,000,000 contribution. Also assisting in the “worthy cause” was Federal Reserve Director William Boyce Thompson. He made a contribution of $1,000,000 to help spread Communistic doctrines in Germany and in Austria. Being surrounded and influenced by Wall Street bankers and future CFR members with international interests, President Woodrow Wilson even offered his moral support for the Russian revolution.
After the Bolshevik Revolution, Russia was a wreck with widespread starvation. The people of Russia might have started a revolt and overthrown the Communists, but then good ole’ U.S.A. couldn’t resist pouring in all sorts of aid to help the war-torn nation. This aid did help a lot of people, especially the Communists who were looking for every opportunity to strengthen their grips on the country. Des Griffin writes that
In the years that followed American industrialists, bankers, and their associates from other countries poured capital into Russia. According to evidence presented during the Senate hearing on The Export of Strategic Materials to the U.S.S.R., October 23, 1961, the major American oil companies sent technicians and machinery in to develop the Russian oil fields. Many addi-tional American experts were sent in to help the Communists consolidate their position by building railroads, steel plants and other vital industries.
Fourth Reich of the Rich, p. 92
So, instead of being “strangled in its cradle” (to quote Churchill), Communism was aided by the free world and allowed to grow into a major world threat.
When World War II was over the Communists again emerged as the victors. Yes, the free world had defeated fascism and secured its liberty (for a while), but it was the Communists who actually gained something from the war. They gained Eastern Europe, and they got their foot in the Asian door. During the war they also received billions of dollars in financial aid from you know who: the ever-generous American tax payers. Stalin was an opponent of Hitler, so it was easy to justify the aid. The fact that Stalin had also murdered millions of his own people didn ’t seem to matter. This aid helped Communist Russia to turn back the Germans during the war, and it helped them to emerge from the war with greater military power than ever, and they also got their
United Nations established.
The “Big Three” meetings between Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin allowed the Communists to take Eastern Europe. Then China fell to the Communists in 1949, largely due to America’s weak foreign policy of containment of Communism rather than victory over Communism. After two world wars the Communists had emerged with more power and more territory. Clearly, the international bankers, who had fueled the Bolshevik Revolution to start with, were dead set on using Communism to gain their world dominion, and their CFR insiders in Washington would see to it that their train stayed on the track in the years ahead. America might slow down the train (so as to give the appearance of “winning the Cold War”), but America would not stop the Communist train. Pratt House, the UN, and the Wall Street bankers would see to that.
The train kept rolling, and at every junction the story was the same: containment, not victory, is the U.S. policy on Communism. In China it was U.S. Secretary of State George C. Marshall threatening to withhold U.S. support from the country unless Chiang Kai-shek accepted the Communists into his government. In Korea it was General Douglas MacAuthur being forbidden by Washington to bomb Communist supply bases north of the border and bridges along the Yula River. He was fired by Truman for protesting this ridiculous mismanagement of the war—only to be replaced by a future CFR member. With the Communist takeover of Cuba, it was William Wieland and company in the U.S. State Department hiding the fact that Castro was a Communist. Containment was still the policy in Vietnam when the “rules of engagement” so handicapped our military that we couldn’t possibly come out with a victory.
Even within our own borders the Communists began to infiltrate our organizations, our industries, our government, and our schools. Those vigilant patriots who sounded the alarm (Sen. Joseph McCarthy, Sen. Barry Goldwater, F.B.I. Director J. Edgar Hoover, etc) were written off as right wing quacks while the rest of the country was too busy with Marilyn Monroe, Martin Luther King, Jr., Elvis, the Beatles and smoking pot to even care. “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.” (Mat. 13:25)
By the time the Communist train had arrived at the “Gorbachev Junction” in the late 1980’s, it had smashed the guts out of over 100,000,000 people.
The world at large has interpreted the events in the Soviet Union and in Eastern Europe between 1986 and 1992 to be the fall of Communism and the triumph of Democracy. We are told that the Soviet Union ceased to exist on December 25, 1991, the day that Gorbachev resigned. We witnessed the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, and even a failed coup by Russia’s hard line Communists in 1991. Then Boris Yeltsin replaced Gorbachev as president and the “Commonwealth of Republics” replaced the Old U.S.S.R. Democracy had been triumphant over Communism—good had defeated evil. Happy days were here again.
While most of the world celebrated these welcomed events like a dream that had come true, a skeptical few suspected that it was all too good to be true.
Indeed, it was. The skeptics were right, as they so often are concerning human events, and anyone who cared to take a closer look would have known they were right. The real observer would have found it to be rather curious that most of Yeltsin’s new “republics” were formed by “former” Communist leaders. Such an observer would also have found curious the fact that the so- called “coup” in August of 1991 included the delivery of 260 Pizza Hut pizzas and 20 cases of Pepsi being delivered to Yeltsin and company who were supposedly under siege. Water and electricity continued to flow into the facilities throughout the whole thing. The curious observer might also have wondered why the coup leaders were the same bunch of Communists who brought Gorbachev to power in the first place. Granted, I have never read Edward Luttwak’s Coup d’Etal (a handbook on how to properly conduct coups), but I seriously doubt that the providing of utilities and pizza parties to the enemy is a recommended strategy.
The “failed coup” was obviously not a real coup at all. That is, it was not a serious attempt by the Communists to overthrow the government (since the government was still Communist). The whole thing was a publicity stunt for giving the impression that Communism had been defeated and that a democratic government had been secured in Russia. With the help of the leftist media, the naive and sleepy-headed Americans swallowed the whole thing “hook, line, and sinker.”
Those who had read the writings of Anatoliy Golitsyn, a former KGB staff officer, were not surprised by any of the “reforms” that occurred between 1986 and 1992 in the Communist nations. Golitsyn’s book, New Lies for Old, had predicted these events clear back in 1982:
The communist strategists are now poised (in 1982) to enter into the final, offensive phase of the long-range policy, entering a joint struggle for the complete triumph of communism . . . the communist strategists are equipped, in pursuing their policy, to engage in maneuvers and stratagems beyond the imagination of Marx or the practical reach of Lenin and unthinkable to Stalin. (date added)
Golistyn, Anatoliy. New Lies for Old.
(Altanta, GA: Clarion House, 1984), p. 327
Although not published until 1984, New Lies for Old was actually written in 1982, so the predictions we are quoting were made long before any of the Communist “reforms” began to occur. Now get this one:
Among such previously unthinkable stratagems are the introduction of false liberalization in Eastern Europe and, probably, in the Soviet Union and the exhibition of spurious independence on the part of the regimes in Romania, Czechoslovakia, and Poland. (emphasis added)
New Lies for Old, p. 327
Numerous other predictions are made in Golitsyn’s book, on pages 327 through 354, including the fall of the Berlin Wall on page 340:
If it should be extended to East Germany, demolition of the Berlin
Wall might even be contemplated.
As we know, the “reforms” were extended to East Germany and this prediction came to pass in 1989.
But Mr. Golitsyn wasn’t the only one making predictions. Way back in 1930, Dimitri Manuilsky of the Lenin School of Political Warfare spelled out the Communist plan to his students in Moscow, and one of the students, Zack Kornfeder, later defected and spelled out the plan to the U.S. Congress in 1951. According to Kornfeder, Manuilsky had taught his students the following in 1930:
To win we will need the element of surprise. The bourgeosie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There will be electrifying overtures and unheard of concessions. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down, we will smash them with our clinched fist.
None Dare Call It Treason: 25 Years Later, p. 11
That is exactly what has happened. Gorbachev was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1990, and the January 1, 1990, issue of Time magazine named him “Man of the Decade.”
Lenin spoke of America becoming so “ripe” that the Communists would be able to overtake us without an attack:
We will not have to attack. It will fall like an overripe fruit into our hands.
None Dare Call It Treason: 25 Years Later, p. 31
America’s greatest generation, the one that won two world wars, is gone. We no longer possess the national character to defeat the growing threat of Communism. Disguised as “fairness for all” under such deceptive banners as The Democratic Party, The Affordable Heathcare Act, Black Lives Matter, the NAACP, the NEA, and most all of the media outlets, leftist Marxism is very alive and on the march in the “land of the free.”
In national elections, presidential candidates seldom receive over fifty-five percent of the votes, and it is considered good if a President holds as much as a fifty percent approval rating after being elected. America is a divided nation, and she’s becoming more divided every year. Jesus said, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.” (Mat. 12:25) The Communist leaders in Russia, China and North Korea know this, even if America doesn’t, and they know that our days are numbered. While building up their militaries they patiently wait for the American fruit to grow ripe.
We would do well to never forget the words of Nicolai Lenin:
In October 1917 we parted with the old world, rejecting it once and for all. We are moving towards a new world, the world of communism. We shall never turn off that road!
None Dare Call It Treason: 25 Years Later, p. 24
Lenin’s “world of communism” is rapidly developing. Whether it comes in five years, fifty years, or longer, we cannot know for certain, but it will come. When it does, America will have no one to blame but herself. Our society is being trained to give up hard-earned freedom for government security, and all we have to do is run-up the national debt to finance it. This cannot continue without consequences. Payday is coming, and with it will come a whole new world order under Satan.
Society is pressing towards the eventual worship of Lucifer as the Great Tribulation approaches. This should come as no surprise to the Christian who is familiar with the word of God. Satan desires worship in the Bible. In fact, he even sought worship from the Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 4:9. The Bible says that all the world will worship Satan in the coming Great Tribulation: “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.” (Rev. 13:8)
I believe it is far easier to identify the coming world religion by examining what it lacks rather than trying to pinpoint its exact form of worship. Painting a clear picture of the religious worship of “the beast” (Rev. 13) isn’t as easy as some may suppose. Some teach that the New Age Movement will be the religion of the Antichrist. This could be true I suppose, but I know of nothing in the Bible that says it has to be true. I personally do not believe that people everywhere will worship the beast in the exact same way. In fact, even the identifying mark of the beast may be received in six different ways: his mark, his name, or his number, to be received in one’s right hand or in one’s forehead. Jesus spoke of his way being the straight and narrow way, yet he told us, “broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction.” (Mat. 7:13). Jesus’ way is a one way street, while Satan’s way is a six lane highway. It isn’t necessary for one to worship Satan this way or that way because either one of the six lanes will take a sinner to hell.
Far too many people today are looking for a certain kind of
“new age religion” to avoid so they can feel secure in their own faith. Their thinking is, “I’ll be okay as long as I don’t do that, because that is Satan worship, or that is new age stuff.” Unfortunately, such reasoning is not supported by God’s word.
I once had a preacher tell me that I had never seen a demon possessed person. His reasoning was that he had seen a demon possessed person in another country, and he had not seen anyone like that in America. So, his conclusion was that no Americans are demon possessed. His assumption was that all demon possessed people act the same way. The fact that the Bible doesn’t support this thinking never occurred to him.
The Bible is clear in stating that the Antichrist (the “beast”) will receive worship (Rev. 13:8, 12, 15; 14:9-11), but the Bible does not say that everyone will worship him in the same manner. To think that Americans, Chinese, Jordanians, Ethiopians, Mexicans, Russians, Zambians, and Jews will all practice the exact same manner of worship is not realistic. They will all worship the beast, yes, but probably not all in the same manner. Therefore, it is useless to speculate about the exact manner in which the beast will be worshipped. We know that he will sit in the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem “shewing himself that he is God,” (II Ths. 2:4), but how this will be promoted and understood throughout the world is not known.
People today, especially Christians, are far too positive in their thinking. People are so terrified at the thought of “passing judgment” that they often refuse to take a closer look at a religious figure. For instance, millions of Americans have heard the late Billy Graham preach many times, and yet they can’t find one thing wrong with his preaching. Why? It is because they are so focused on what he did say that they never think to consider what he did not say. Have you ever heard him preach about a burning lake of fire where Christ rejecting sinners are tormented forever? No, you have not because Graham didn’t believe in the hell of the Bible. Why don’t people know this after his many years of preaching? There’s only one reason: they never consider what is missing.
Satan is not asleep. He is preparing this world for his own new world order on every front. To think that he has overlooked the religious front would be naive to say the least, yet that is what most Christians seem to think. While waiting for the Antichrist to appear, millions of professing Christians today are failing to
realize that “the spirit of antichrist” is already present (I John 4:3), and his presence is manifest in a lack of sound doctrine, not in a new religious movement that is misleading the masses. To receive worship Satan must first turn people from the true worship of God. He does this by subtracting essential components from their worship.
One thing the devil has stolen from God’s people is God’s word. Since the year 1611, the English speaking people have had access to the pure and preserved words of God. The greatest missionary works and revivals in history have occurred with the faithful preaching, teaching, and reading of the King James Bible. Satan knows this better than anyone, so in the late 1800’s, he offered us a new Bible based on corrupt manuscripts (Sinaiticus and Vaticanus). For well over a century Satan has been flooding our homes and churches with these new Bible perversions. Hundreds of books and tracts have been written to expose these counterfeit Bibles by showing how they subtract from the word of God, as well as add to it and change it, yet most remain unconvinced. I personally have dealt with probably hundreds of people about this very subject by showing them where the new perversions subtract from God’s word—how the fundamental doctrines of Christ are under attack—yet most do not think it’s an important issue. More and more preachers are failing to emphasize the deity of Christ, his virgin birth, his bodily resurrection, his blood atonement, and his literal second coming, and one reason for this is that the new perversions are failing to emphasize these truths. Satan is slowly stripping the word of God from Christianity, and very few even see it.
With the stripping away of the word of God comes also the stripping away of absolute truth and convictions. Less people today than ever really look to God’s word for “the final answer.”
Hardly a week goes by in which this preacher is not contacted by someone who wants to argue about their religious views. Probably over eighty percent of such people have one thing in common: they don’t know what God’s word says and they don’t care. E-mails and letters are sent to me regularly, arguing religious viewpoints, yet they often contain no Scripture at all. Even when I point this out to the individual, still, I get nothing from them but personal opinions. Often, I am told things like, “You think you’re right and all who disagree are wrong.” People simply cannot come to grips with the fact that it is possible to know things for certain.
Most people today are greatly offended with anyone who speaks with authority (Mat. 7:29). This is considered “hate” and “not showing the love of Christ.” The days of preaching the word of God by reproving, rebuking and exhorting with all longsuffering and doctrine (II Tim. 4:2) are mostly gone. Professing Christianity is in apostasy today because she has no Biblical convictions. Having Biblical convictions has become “politically incorrect” in our society. Having “opinions” and “viewpoints” is fine (for now), but Satan has stripped absolute truth and convictions from modern Christianity and from modern religion in general. This will serve him well when the moment comes for all to worship the beast. As someone has so truthfully stated, if you don’t stand for something, you ’ll fall for anything.
Sound doctrine is sadly missing from most churches. II Timothy 4:3-4 tells us that this will happen: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
Frequently I am contacted by people who are discouraged and frustrated with the fact that their preacher doesn’t teach them the doctrinal truths of the word of God. I recall one such letter that read, “I can’t convey to you in words how much your tape and tract ministry have awakened a hunger in me to devour the word of God.Oh, how I wish I could move to Tennessee and join a church like yours.” What does that say for his own home church? Not much. Most professing Christians today do not even know what their church claims to believe, much less how to support such beliefs with the Bible. Many are even taking great pride in the fact that they do not teach doctrine! Doctrine, they say, turns people away and causes division. God didn’t say teach doctrine unless it causes division. God said to “speak thou the things which become sound doctrine” (Tit. 2:1). The new world religion is very light on sound doctrine. They’re big on contemporary “praise” (entertainment) music and the prosperity gospel, but very light on sound doctrine.
Moral standards have also been stripped from religion. God demands that his true followers in Christ become new creatures (II Cor. 5:17), but the coming Antichrist has no moral code for his followers. One can be a fornicator, a thief, a sorcerer, or even a murderer, and still worship the beast (Rev. 9:21). To prepare men for this immoral religion, Satan is stripping morality from today’s
religions. Sodomites are serving as “ministers” in churches and are being joined in matrimony in many churches. More and more churches are accepting sodomites into their membership. Many unmarried couples are “living together” during the week and then attending worship services together on Sundays. Many preachers know of particular sins being committed by their church members, yet they ignore these problems for fear of starting trouble in the church.
Today’s religious music is also indicative of what lies ahead. The gap between the sacred and the secular is closing more with every passing year. The music itself has been mostly patterned after the music of the world, so the flesh of today’s church members is fed to the full while their inner spirit is starved, and they don’t even know it. The relationship of melody, harmony, and rhythm with the believer’s spirit, soul, and body is totally foreign to most Christians. Their spiritual discernment is gone, and their favorite music is whatever they “like.” Many church buildings have become concert halls where people come to find entertainment. The “amen” and the “glory to God” has been replaced with the worldly applause. Our songs of praise have become performances for sit and watch audiences. Ministering music that speaks to the heart is becoming harder and harder to find because most modern musicians are not close enough to God to produce spiritual music. The Antichrist will have no objections to the kind of music being broadcast from today’s Christian radio stations because such music seldom encourages anyone spiritually, and it seldom glorifies God. Satan accepts this kind of music because it has basically the same carnal effect on Christians that rock and country music have on lost people.
Our sense of duty is disappearing as well. James 1:22 warns God’s people to be “doers” of the word and not hearers only. Yet, what are most church members today? They are generally people who give God two or three hours per week and then reserve the remaining 160-165 hours for themselves. Most grown Christian men have never gone on church visitation or street preaching, never personally witnessed to a lost soul and never handed a person a gospel tract. To most, “church” is a place to go once or twice per week and nothing more. The idea of getting involved in a spiritual ministry of the church, such as a jail ministry, a nursing home ministry, or street preaching, has never occurred to most, and the preacher doesn’t have the conviction or the courage to bring up the subject. The new world religion of Satan will fit such
people like a glove. People do not want to “do” anything, and Satan doesn’t ask them to “do” anything. Just worshipping the beast will be enough. No cross to bear, no reproach, no prayer, no Bible studies, no missions programs, no witnessing, and no tract distribution or street preaching. Just take the mark, worship the beast, and go on about your sinful ways. That’s an easy religion if you’ve ever saw one, and billions will adhere to it.
After stripping Christianity of its essential elements, Satan will have no problem pulling the masses into his new world religion. One characteristic of this new religion will be that it is a sightbased religion. Revelation 13:14 says, “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” The same point is made by Paul in II Thessalonians 2:9-11: “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” Today, Christians worship God through the person of Jesus Christ, a man whom they’ve never seen. This makes Christianity a religion of faith (Rom. 10:17). However, people will worship the beast because of visible miracles that are performed for deceptive purposes. The new world religion will include numerous miracles for people to be dazzled with and thereby deceived.
It will also be a popularity-based religion. Revelation 13:8 says, “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him . . .” Those who are so motivated by what others are doing will automatically go along with Satan’s religion. A large number of church members today are attending a particular church only because “that’s where so and so goes” or “that’s where everyone goes.” Remember, the convictions are gone. Millions will be caught up in the coming new world religion simply because it will be a popular trend and “everyone else is doing it.”
Fear will also be a factor. Since buying and selling will not be permitted to those who refuse to worship the Antichrist (Rev. 13:16-18), many will embrace the new religion out of pure fear.
Today, millions worship God out of a genuine love for him. Tomorrow, love will be gone. The word “love” appears last in the Bible at Revelation 3:19. The chapters dealing with the worship of the Antichrist do not contain the word at all. God is love (I John 4:8, 16), but Satan is not. Fear will motivate millions, but love will motivate very few in Satan’s kingdom.
Seeing all the Satanic miracles being performed will likely strike a spiritual nerve in people, so record numbers could become involved in occult practices. The word “sorceries” occurs twice in Revelation (9:21 & 18:23). Many young people today are becoming involved in WICCA, Kabbalah, and other trendy occult practices. Having forsaken Biblical Christianity and other traditional religions as being “out-dated,” the next generation or two may very well become overwhelmingly involved in the occult. If so, such a generation would be easy prey for the coming son of Satan. Walter Martin’s book, The New Age Cult, offers a good overview of the New Age Movement for those who desire more information.
Another “twist” is that of State worship. Since Communists are atheistic evolutionists at heart, it naturally follows that the State would receive worship, since it is the State that “protects” and “provides” for all. In the Great Tribulation, one’s allegiance to the State could become so real that it becomes worship. The Antichrist, being the head of the State, would be the recipient of the worship.
Just for thought . . . George Orwell’s 1984 has Winston Smith going against “the Party” (the government system), and the Party’s figurehead is “Big Brother.” The whole time Winston never really knows if Big Brother is a real person or just a symbolic picture on a poster. He is killed by the Party at the end of the book, but only after he has grown to love Big Brother.
One of William Jasper’s closing comments in his chapter on The UN’s One-World Religion is noteworthy. On page 258 he says
In the emerging new world order, the UN superstate will tolerate no other god before it.
State worship may well be the coming world religion. In fact, the beast worshippers of Revelation chapter thirteen look to their new god as being an all-powerful god who deserves worship since no one can overcome him:
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (Rev. 13:4)
What will be the new world religion? It will be a mandatory religion inspired by Satan and enforced by his world government. Today, Satan is stripping traditional religions, especially Christianity, of their core foundation stones. Tomorrow, he will replace them with a religion that honors himself alone as the true “God” (II Ths. 2:3-4).
For centuries Christians have been predicting the Lord’s return, yet he still has not returned. In our own lifetime, we’ve heard our grandfathers and fathers speak about “how bad things are” and that “the Lord must be returning soon.” Such speculators are on the right track in principle (realizing that Jesus will return after a terrible series of events on the earth), but a lot more than principles are required to make a convincing argument.
Many prophetic signs are flashing throughout the modern world. Entire books could be written, and have been written, about the rise of prophetic world powers such as the European Union, Gog and Magog, eastern powers like North Korea, China and India, and also the threats of Iran and Iraq. We have already said a great deal about the push for end-time globalism and global government. Much could also be said about the signs that Jesus mentioned in Matthew chapter twenty-four: pestilences, famines, earthquakes, wars and false Christs. But also in Matthew 24, Jesus spoke of what we might call the SUPER sign, the restoration and preservation of the nation of Israel, the “fig tree” of Matthew 24:32.
This may very well be the greatest indication of all that Jesus’ return is very near. After rejecting Christ, God gave Israel roughly forty years to repent (30 A.D. - 70 A.D.). Within that forty-year period we find the ministries of the apostles occurring and most of the New Testament books being written. The words “Israel,” “Jew,” and “Jews” appear over one hundred and fifty times in the Bible after the ascension of Christ. On the cross Jesus had cried, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34). It was indeed the Father’s will to forgive Israel, but his
forgiveness, as always, could not be granted without Israel’s repentance. She did not repent, so God allowed the Romans to lay siege to Jerusalem for four months in 70 A.D., costing the lives of an estimated 1,000,000 Jews. Finally, the temple was destroyed and the Jews were dispersed among the Gentile nations of the world. In 135 A.D., the Jewish people tried to re-establish themselves in their homeland, but the Roman emperor Hadrian took the lives of over a half million more of them, ploughed Zion under, and then forbad them from returning. From that time until the late 1800’s, the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, would wander over Europe from nation to nation without a national homeland, often suffering bitter persecution and death. Because of this, many grew to believe that God was “all finished” with Israel. The Bible, however, declares that God is not finished:
But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers. (Jer. 16:15)
And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.” (Amos 9:14-15)
The New Testament also supports the restoration of Israel:
For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. (Rom. 11:25-28)
The word of God has faithfully declared for thousands of years that God has not changed his plans for Israel; he has not forgotten his promises. Many throughout history have had trouble believing this because things have seemed so hopeless for the Jews. Most of the old commentators wrote that God’s promises to Israel were now to be applied to the church (replacement theology). Many Bibles printed before the twentieth century, and even some today,
contain notations that lead one to believe that God is finished with Israel. This was almost a universal belief among professing Christians before the 1900’s.
Then it all began to change. With the leadership of Theodore Herzel and others near the turn of the century, the Jews began returning to Zion, their national God-given homeland. Such large numbers returned that over 400,000 were in the homeland at the start of World War II in 1939. After the war they were granted five thousand square miles of land in Palestine. Then, in 1948, Israel became an independent nation for the first time in over 2,500 years. Not since the Babylonian invasion of 606 B.C. had Israel enjoyed full independence as a nation. Israel gained more land space after the Six Day War of 1967, and over 6,500,000 Jews live in their homeland today.
Another New Testament prophecy concerning Israel’s endtime restoration comes from the lips of the Lord Jesus Himself:
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So
likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. (Mat. 24:32-34)
God’s “fig tree” is the nation of Israel (Hos. 9:10, Jer. 24:110), and it seemed all withered and dead until the 1900’s. Then it began to show signs of life, and in 1948 it put forth leaves. Since 1948 Israel has been opposed viciously by the Arab nations, and others as well, yet she has stood strong and continued to grow as a nation. Massive hardships are in store for the Jewish people in Israel (Mat. 24, Rev. 12, etc.), but a faithful remnant will be saved and God’s Kingdom promises concerning Israel will all reach their fulfillment. If “this generation” (in the above text) is a reference to the generation that witnessed Israel’s becoming a nation in 1948, then our Lord’s return is most definitely at hand. God is clearly preparing his chosen people, the Jews, for the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ by having them in the land when he returns. The restoration and preservation of Israel is most definitely the greatest sign of the times.
In our effort to limit this booklet to under seventy pages, much prophetic information must be omitted. Perhaps at some point, we will be able to publish a “signs of the times” volume that lays out dozens of prophetic indicators for the student’s edification, but for now we will have to close out our study with just one: the ever-so- ominous mark of the beast, the culmination of all that Satan has planned, the key element of his coming reign of terror in the Great Tribulation.
We are told in Revelation 13:15-17 that the Antichrist will rule over a total world dictatorship:
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Whatever the “image of the beast” turns out to be, everyone will be required by international law to worship it. That’s the new world religion that we’ve already touched on. What is really more striking than the new universal religion or even the actual mark of the beast itself is the fact that this new system can actually be executed on a global scale. Our present federal government has trouble enough enforcing its laws on less than 340,000,000 people in only one nation, yet we read in God’s word that “the beast” will rule over all nations. This rule will be so tight that even buying and selling will be controlled. Can you think of a way to control all buying and selling? If you were given the job of controlling all buying and selling in the world, how would you do it?
Actually, there is only one way it could be done: with modern technology. To believe the Revelation account as it stands— without trying to force its fulfillment into some localized historical event—we are faced with the plain hard fact that a total world dictatorship like the one in Revelation chapter thirteen has not been possible until modern times.
It wasn’t even possible during the life of Hitler. Adolf Hitler spoke of establishing a kingdom that would last one thousand years, yet his kingdom only lasted thirteen years and it wasn’t anywhere near becoming a global dictatorship. A global govern
ment could be formed, and it could pass laws, but how could it enforce its laws? Suppose the UN passed a universal law stating that parents could not spank their children, and then the United States ratified the law. How could they enforce such a law? They would have to know what is happening in all private homes twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week. Historically, this has never been possible, certainly not on a global scale, but it is becoming possible today. It may or may not happen, but it is possible due to modern advances in technology. In his foresight, George Orwell knew over seventy years ago that it would one day be possible to monitor the private lives of citizens. At no time since the book of Revelation was written has such a thing been possible, but today it is developing before our very eyes. With a few more terrorist strikes leveled against us and a few more pandemics (PLANdemics?), it might become a reality.
The buying and selling factor is a key point to remember. Buying and selling is such a regular part of our lives that never a day goes by that we do not buy or sell. If one does not buy something with cash, a check, or a credit card on a given day, he still purchases his electricity, his water, his gas, and other conveniences such as his telephone or internet service on credit. A monthly statement is usually sent for such items as the balance owed increases each day. So, buying and selling is a daily activity for most people. In fact, employment is a form of buying and selling, for an employee sells his services to an employer for an agreed amount of money. This too is a daily activity. Society simply cannot function without its citizens being involved in regular buying and selling. Satan knows this better than anyone, so he has chosen buying and selling as his strong point of control over people.
Perhaps a world government could have been formed at any time in history, but it could not have lasted for long because it could not have enforced its laws, and certainly not laws concerning buying and selling. Even today, with all of its “gun control” laws on the law books, the federal government still does not have “control” of every gun in the nation. If every registered firearm in America were confiscated, there would still remain millions of unregistered firearms in the hands of the citizens, especially in the Northwest and in the South. Enough firepower would remain in the hands of the citizenry that an all out “Civil War Part II” would likely erupt and be sustained for a number of years. But what if a world government, say the United Nations,
had total control of all buying and selling? The “rebels” might still have their unregistered guns, but they would not have the means for purchasing ammunition or buying supplies for making their own ammunition, or at least not indefinitely. Couple this with the fact that all buying and selling has been forbidden them, since they refused a biochip or a vaccine, and one can begin to see how a world government could indeed control the lives of people. People would not have electricity, water, or gas heat in their homes because they have been locked out of the system that allows them to buy such conveniences. At first, they would “knuckle down” and find ways to survive, but gradually “Big Brother” would win. Obtaining fuel for vehicles, ATV’s, electric generators, and other motorized items would grow harder and harder. Such hardships would naturally bring an increase in wounds, injuries and illness, yet obtaining medical supplies, prescriptions and treatments would grow harder ever day. Many survivalists today are kidding themselves by thinking that they will “live off of the land” when the big “crash” finally comes, but most have failed to take the buying and selling factor into consideration. In fact, Israel only survives the coming events due to God’s special provisions (Rev. 12:14; Hos. 2:14-15; Lam. 5:9). Survival guides advise having emergency kits prepared to sustain livelihood for weeks and months, yet we are dealing here with a world government that will last at least three and one half years. Satan doesn’t choose to control buying and selling in the coming system because it might work; he does so because he knows that it will work. It will not work overnight, but it will work very effectively after two or three years.
Technology will be the key. It is most likely that all legal buying and selling will eventually be done through electronic means. This means that every person, every government agency, every hospital, every clinic, every bank, every utility company, every post office, every retail and wholesale outlet, every place of employment, and probably every place of worship will be required by law to accept an assigned account number. This writer believes that this could very well happen to some degree before the Great Tribulation and before the actual mark, name, and number of the beast appears. That is, governments could issue “smart” cards or some kind of national identification system at any time, just as the federal government has been issuing the Social Security card since 1933. Today, such a card or chip can easily contain volumes of information, including financial information, proof of insurance,
credit history, medical records, vaccine verification, data on any criminal activity, driving records, employment history, and a host of other items of interest. Such a card or assigned number in itself would not be the actual mark, name, or number of the beast of Revelation, but it would certainly be a major step in that direction.
Shortly after the 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, talk about the need for a national ID card quickly began. Obamacare also stirred some concerns in 2010 with its “individual mandate” and its clear goal of a single payer healthcare system. Then after the 2020 China virus hit the world, all the “experts” began talking about the need for vaccines and “contact tracing.” Some have even suggested that COVID is an acronym for Certificate Of Verification ID. Bill Gates supposedly even has a patent on the number 666, or at least some version of it. How all of this is going to play out, no one knows, but we do know that the time is at hand. Every crisis from here on out will likely be used to further the globalist agenda. The left is going to establish a dictatorship just like Hitler (National Socialist German Workers’Party). Just as Hitler used the Reichtag fire of 1933 to push new “security” laws into place, the Washington globalists who want international socialism will use one “crisis” after another to bring American citizens into bondage in a cashless society where one must totally rely on Big Brother government for his every need. True American patriots like President Trump and his 75,000,000 voters will continually be pushed out of the way, even if it means stealing a national election, because Satan is hungry for control and worship. He will destroy anyone who gets in his way, quite literally in the Great Tribulation (Rev. 13:15).
The time is at hand, my friend. The devil has done his work and the stage is almost set. You do NOT want to be a part of what’s soon coming on this earth. Flee to God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, while you still can.
Friend, what are you counting on to ensure that you spend eternity with the Lord Jesus Christ and all his saints rather than in hell with Satan and all the wicked? Jesus made it clear that many think they are saved when really they are lost (Mat. 7:2123). Many think they are saved because of religious reasons, like baptism or church membership. Others cling to moral arguments
for their salvation, such as claiming they’ve done more good than bad or suggesting that a good God wouldn’t send anyone to hell. But what did Jesus say?
In the third chapter of the gospel of John, Jesus spoke to a very religious man named Nicodemus and said, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3) A few verses later he said, “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” Jesus then explained that being born again meant being “born of the Spirit.” (John 3:8)
What does this mean? It means that the gospel of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, must be preached to a sinner and that the sinner must believe it. The apostle Paul defines the gospel in I Corinthians 15:3-4: “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
Friend, do you believe that? Do you believe that you are a sinner? Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” The Bible record is that Jesus is the Son of God who died for your sins, was buried, and then rose the third day. Do you believe that? Many will say, “Yes, I do believe that, ” but they fail to realize that their belief is only in their heads, not in their hearts. They believe it as a historical fact, but they have never received Jesus Christ as their Saviour, and they have never really trusted Christ to save them. Even the devils believe mentally, but the devils aren’t saved (James 2:19).
When a sinner truly believes on Christ he receives Christ as his Lord and Saviour just as one would freely receive a gift. God so loved the world that he gave us his Son (John 3:16), but that’s only half of it. A gift can be rejected or received. You must receive the Lord Jesus Christ in order to be saved and become a child of God. John 1:12 says, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” The next verse says that when you do this you will be “born of God.” (John 1:13)
I Peter 1:23 says that you can be born again of the word of God and live forever. Friend, you do not have to live in doubt. You can be saved, and you can know it. Romans 10:9-10 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation.” To believe in the heart is to trust, to commit, to personally receive and trust Jesus Christ as Saviour.
A common misconception in the world is the notion that God is everyone’s Father, that we are all God’s children. This is false because no one can be a child of God without being born again though Jesus Christ. Again, consider the words of John 1:12: “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” One can become a son of God by receiving the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ. No amount of doing good, keeping commandments, or church involvement can save a sinner and make him a son of God. “Ye must be born again,” Jesus said, and he said it to a very moral and religious man.
Morality and religion cannot save. Only Jesus can save: “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36) Have YOU been made free from your sins by being washed in the blood of Jesus Christ? I John 1:7 says, “the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Jesus shed his blood for you, but it profits you nothing, if you do not receive him as your own personal Saviour. Why not do so right now? Why not turn from your sins by turning to Jesus Christ and trusting Him alone for your salvation? Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Why not right now?
If you have received Christ as your Saviour, you need to follow the Lord in believer’s baptism and become an involved member of a Bible-believing church. The online directory at www.kjvchurches.com should prove helpful.
While it’s true that dark times are coming, please remember that they are also going. Jesus Christ will return from heaven and destroy the wicked from the earth (Rev. 19:11-21). Then He will establish a righteous kingdom on the earth and rule over it with His saints (Rev. 20:1-7). May God help us to remain focused on Jesus and His mission as the present storm clouds gather. We have a glorious future, and these present troubles and uncertainties will “grow strangely dim” in the light of God’s Son and God’s word. May we occupy and be about the Father’s business until He calls us home.

For I dipt into the future, far as human eyes could see,
Saw the Vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be ...
Saw the heavens fill with commerce, argosies of magic sails,
Pilots of the purple twilight,
Dropping down with costly bales;
Saw the heavens fill with shouting, and there rain’d a ghastly dew
From the nations’ airy navies grappling in the central blue . . .
Far along the world-wide whisper of the south wind rushing warm,
With the standards of the peoples Plunging through the thunderstorm; Till the war-drum throbbed no longer, and the battle flags were furl’d
In the Parliament of man, the Federation of the world.
There the common sense of most shall hold a fretful realm in awe,
And the kindly earth shall slumber; lapt in universal law.
Alfred Lord Tennyson, Locksley Hall, 1842 (in part)
