Given the title of this post, the reader may think I am preparing to cite the conspiratorial activities of various shadowy groups like the Bilderbergers and Trilateral Commission working behind the scenes to foist a global government on humanity. But this is not necessary because it is easy to see by their public actions that the world's ruling elite share a vision to unite the nations of the world under one government. Most people in the U.S. are in denial about this because it will be such a stark change from life as we know it today.
Among the most prominent of the ruling elite who has been very vocal in calling for a world government is Pope Francis in his recent encyclical on the environment. The Pope has fully embraced the Climate Change narrative of the ruling elite and is calling for his followers to do so as well. These means all of us in wealthy nations like the United States and the European Union need to be willing to accept a dramatic reduction in our lifestyles. While this certainly should apply to some in this country, the radical Climate Change faithful will not be satisfied with mere superficial adjustments but have more extreme changes in mind. They will not rest until the U.S. no longer consumes so much energy.
The ruling elite are all on-board with the radical Climate Change faithful because centralization of powers will be necessary to realize their vision. Global Warming is too big a problem for any one nation to fix and will require a global government to administer it. Nations will have to work together more and thus there is no room for a superpower like the United States throwing its weight around. President Obama has already demonstrated his willingness to yield the sovereignty of this country to the global community of nations. Such actions are in the Spirit of Antichrist in that this is how he will come to power: "These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast" (Revelation 17:13, NKJV).
The Pope has also demonstrated his being all in for global government in his recent activism over immigration wanting to meet with illegals in the U.S. and even entering the country through Mexico for his September U.N. speech. At its core, the immigration issue is really about realizing the globalist vision. The ruling elite want to have open borders as one more justification for a global government. Indeed, if we are to be one global village, we can't have national borders.
The desire to have open borders is yet one more demonstration of the Spirit of Antichrist which opposes God's establishment of national boundaries: "He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings" (Acts 17:26). Flooding this country with third world immigrants quicker than they can assimilate is one tactic that will contribute to our becoming more like a third world nation ourselves. We have already taken into the U.S. a quarter of the entire population of Mexico. This is no-doubt necessary to better form a North American Union that will probably be one of the ten kingdoms of Revelation 17:12 yielding sovereignty to the Antichrist.
So what is so bad about having a global government? Certainly this should make war obsolete, shouldn't it? Well world peace is one of the justifications for global government and is good in theory but humanist global visionaries forget the natural depravity of mankind; "the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9). There will be no peace between nations until Jesus, the Prince of Peace rules during the coming Millennial Kingdom. The Bible makes it clear that wars will proliferate as the Antichrist seeks to form and keep his global coalition.
The biggest problem with the path to global government will be the loss of individual freedoms which can never coexist with central planning. The ultimate goal of the globalists will be totalitarian control over the people of earth (see Revelation 13:16-16). People in this country do not value freedom as much as we should. Too many take for granted the freedoms we enjoy in this country even though these are what has made the United States unique in this world. However, if we are to usher in a Global New World Order, we will have to lose most of the freedoms we currently enjoy. We have already begun to lose many of our freedoms and the stage has been set to dramatically change life as we know it in this country.
The worst consequences of the coming global government will contribute to the terribleness of the Tribulation. But the Tribulation that Jesus warned us about in Matthew 24 will not occur until the Antichrist comes to power and this will not happen during the Church Age. "Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition" (2 Thessalonians 2:3). In context, the "man of sin" is the Antichrist and "that Day" is the Rapture of the Church. Christians will be off the planet, celebrating with our Lord Jesus Christ when the Antichrist comes on the scene. So as we see the stage being set for global government, we know that our redemption is near.
Big changes are coming soon to this planet. As God told us in Habakkuk 1:5, "Look among the nations and watch— Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you." God is in control of His Creation and He is allowing this world to take the course it is on so that He can intervene and fix all the problems people think they can do in their own power without Him. This is not a good time to be without Jesus Christ in your life. If you have not already done so, I urge everyone reading this to open your heart to the Lord before it is too late.
