"We shall have a one-world government, whether or not we like it," declared James Paul Warburg on Feb. 17, 1950, speaking before the United States Senate. "The only question is whether world government will be achieved by conquest or consent."
Men's Dream of Dominion
World government has been the dream and dominion of men through the ages to this present age from the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11 to the trumpeting of the new world order in our generation.
The problem with pursuit of global government is not in the nature of government itself, for God has ordained government as "the minister of God to thee for good," to protect against evil and praise that which is good (Rom. 13:1-4). Civil government among mankind is to be conducted under the overarching fear of the God of the Bible and His governance. When humans forsake the fear of the Lord, God's ways of government and covenantal oversight and revelation are no longer available. Man thus devises his own ways, seeking inevitably to create a utopian world order promising peace on earth.
The promise and hope of a global order ushering in world peace is profoundly alluring to the natural mind. After all, who in their right mind would not yearn for peace to avert a nuclear holocaust?
The Battle for Dominion
The battle for dominion rages. The great dragon (Satan) is determined to dominate the planet to satisfy his personal vendetta against God. His determination is to "deceive the whole world" (Rev. 12:9). That is why Yeshua (Jesus) warned us in His final words before His crucifixion, "Take heed that no man deceive you" (Matt. 24:4).
How will such diabolical deception take place? Why will the vast majority be deceived? What is the deceiver's scheme or modus operandi? What is wrong with globalization? Will you be able to discern the difference between truth and deception?
The Moment to be Seized
The date was Sept. 11, 1990. U.S. President George Herbert Walker Bush stood before a joint session of Congress. Consider closely the words of the 41st president: "Out of these troubled times ... a new world order can emerge: a new era—freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice and more secure in the quest for peace."
That "new world is struggling to be born," Bush declared. The "opportunity" that he so eagerly desired to seize, was the building of a "new world order." Over 200 times, the senior Bush declared this "new world order" during his administration. It was historic. It was as if the world had become pregnant. The birth would come in the "fulness of time" ... heaven's prophetic time and Satan's false-gospel hour to seduce the world.
It would be man's glorious gospel of self-salvation, of utopian peace and of global safety without the God of creation. A substitute god would be prepared, designed democratically, without dogma or doctrine offensive to a multicultural, religiously pluralistic world intent on global unity.
The pressure for and toward world unity, at every level, is unprecedented. This pressure has reached a fever pitch. The flames of global fever are fanned by fear of global conflagration and by a utopian vision for a global peace and prosperity that has heretofore escaped man's grasp.
This emerging globalism is being forged out of the multitude of prevalent "isms" in our world, the most significant of which we can broadly distill as the "science-isms," "social-isms," "political-isms" and "religious-isms," with the ultimate goal of unprecedented materialism. The merging and synergetic interaction of these various broad categories of isms, each reinforcing the other, is developing a kind of "magnetic" attraction into an uncanny bond now universally defined as globalism to bind the world in the final thrust for global unity.
Global governance is not a conspiracy theory but a confrontative truth. The "gospel" of global government and the unification of the world is secularly described as globalism. Its spiritual roots draw life not from trusting God's wisdom, grace and power, but from man's desire to sever dependence on his Creator and to depend upon mankind's "good nature" to do the right thing for the "common good," and hence save himself. It is the "anti-gospel" precisely because it denies man's fundamental sinful condition necessitating a savior other than himself, shifting ultimate trust to the "arm of flesh," which brings a curse (Jer. 17:5).
Nature abhors a vacuum. When our genuine trust in God and His Word wanes, Satan is quick to interject an alternative, inevitably shifting our focus from authentic faith to a fleshly counterfeit. We are wide open for Satan's final spiritual deception, designed to entrap both Jew and Gentile.
Massive spiritual deception is mounting as the final bridge into a counterfeit "promised land" of global security and prosperity (shalom). The world's religious isms are now combining to propel even professing Christians and Jews in the powerful currents of global "oneness" into the counterfeit Christ's new global order.
As Jesus well warned, "if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect" (Matt. 24:24, KJV). Globalism is, in reality, the "anti-gospel," choreographing an increasingly faithless, feeling-driven world in a final collective rebellion against God in the battle for King of the Mountain, as the Antichrist takes dominion. It is time to "Prepare the way of the Lord."
