A persistent conspiracy is that the secretive Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and Bilderbergs are working behind the scene to bring about a world government. This conspiracy has a ring of truth because many of our crises are fabricated by society’s elites to invoke a response that drives us closer to more centralized control.
WorldNetDaily reports that one of the proponents of the one world conspiracy is getting some official legitimacy. Author Daniel Estulin, of the book "The True Story of the Bilderberg Group", has been invited to speak about this secretive cabal before the European Parliament in Brussels June 1.
Estulin’s book explains how the web of people and organizations has become a “shadow government whose top priority is to erase the sovereignty of all nation-states and supplant them with global corporate control of their economies under the surveillance of 'an electronic global police state.’”
I’m sure Estulin will be successful selling a lot of books warning about one-world government conspirators because this trend is undeniable. Certainly it is consistent with what the Bible says will happen in the seven years leading up to the return of Christ. But believing that secretive cabals are behind the trend toward a one-world government denies what is really going on.
Ephesians 6:12 says, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (NKJ). It isn’t cabals of human conspirators plotting to install a one-world government, Satan and his fellow fallen angels are tempting key people to take actions that bring it about.
God is in control and He is allowing Satan and his minions to have more influence in our world in order to set the stage for the Tribulation. As God said before the last time He poured out His wrath on earth at the flood, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever” (Genesis 6:3). And as we reached the point when the timing was right for Jesus to come the first time, this will be the case when He returns… “when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son” (Galatians 4:4).
People like to think in terms of human conspiracies because if people are behind it, people can change the path we’re on. While human decisions are certainly behind the trend toward a one-world government, unseen spiritual forces are spurring things along. But it wouldn’t mean we could fix the problem ourselves even if there were no spiritual conspirators working against us. Our human nature prevents us from consistently doing the right thing. As we needed God’s intervention to make a way for our sins to be forgiven, we need Him to help us with the mess we’re making of this world. Jesus came the first time to save us from our sins, He is returning to set things right on earth.
Every day I see more and more reasons why we sorely need Jesus to return. The stage being set for a one-world government is just one more thing showing we don’t have long to wait.
