Amid growing concerns that the United Nations is taking steps to create the global state predicted by the biblical prophets, the U.N. is opening a "regional hub" in Washington, D.C., FoxNews.com reports.
With the apparent blessing of the Obama administration, the chief U.N. human rights agency plans to use the "hub" as a center for "organizing against the death penalty" and for "affecting the legal frameworks, policies, and strategies of American counterterrorism."
Known as the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the "hub" also has a number of more "nebulous 'thematic' objectives for the U.S., which include, according to an OHCHR information document, 'the establishment of national participatory bodies for reporting and implementing recommendations of human rights mechanisms' and the aim of 'widening the democratic space' with the aid of undefined 'National Human Rights Institutions,'" George Russell wrote in his FoxNews.com story.
"All of those themes, along with OHCHR's view of itself as 'the principle advocate for human rights within the U.N. system,' seem likely to bring the U.S. into closer proximity to the U.N.'s tangled, proliferating and often sweepingly contradictory notions of international human rights law—and also, perhaps, to the notoriously dictatorship-riddled, 47-member U.N. Human Rights Council," Russell wrote.
The announcement of the new office in D.C. follows the U.N. summit in New York City in late September when the nations of the world approved a 15-year U.N. plan titled, "Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development."
"The UN continues to grow in power and stature," Michael Snyder, founder of The Economic Collapse Blog, told Charisma News. "The launch of the 2030 Agenda that includes 17 new 'global goals' was a major step toward the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, and yet very few people in the evangelical world are talking about this. I am absolutely astounded by this. If something like this had happened 20 years ago, preachers all over America would have been screaming bloody murder.
"Many Christians have been sitting back and waiting for one giant 'event' to happen, but the truth is that small steps toward a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion are happening almost constantly now. The apostle John warned that these things would happen nearly 2,000 years ago, and now they are playing out right in front of our eyes. When will people finally start to wake up?"
In their Heartland Institute article, "Behind the Scenes: UN Agenda 2030's Funders, Promoters," Nancy Thorner and Bonnie O'Neil wrote the "2030 Agenda" is designed to "take away freedoms and liberties granted us from the inception of our country."
"If its founders and promoters succeed, America will look very different within a surprisingly short period of time," Thorner and O'Neil wrote. "Both U.N. Agendas involve a massive plan that requires a fortune to fund. How do hard core [sic] socialists convince freedom-loving people who have worked hard all their lives to willingly give the government more money than seems reasonable to support a plan that will destroy their way of life? ... The United Nations has been pondering such a plan for decades and now they think they have the answer."
U.N. documents reveal the plan includes 17 goals, to be achieved over the next 15 years, that represent a "new universal agenda" for humanity.
"Virtually every nation on the planet has willingly signed on to this new agenda, and you are expected to participate whether you like it or not," Snyder wrote.
Patrick Wood, author of Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, says the "sustainable development" meme is a ruse to replace capitalism with a global socialist system.
"Any honest economist would instantly balk at such Pollyannaish promises of utopia, and the American public should do so as well," Wood said. "The fact is that these wild promises of prosperity for all are merely the candy coating to deceive the world into going along with its own economic destruction."
Some of the biggest celebrities in the world have been recruited to promote these "global goals."
During the summit, about 60,000 people attended the "Global Citizen Festival" in Central Park in New York City, where celebrities such as Beyoncé, Pearl Jam, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay promoted the U.N.'s "global goals."
"Through a controlled media the mass populations will be told that this is all about saving the environment and 'ending poverty,'" Paul McGuire, a Fox News and History Channel commentator and a Bible prophecy expert, says.
Meanwhile, experts are concerned that the U.N. Climate Change Conference, taking place Nov. 30 through Dec. 11 in Paris, France, will involve yet another step in creating the interlocking treaties and agreements to bring about this new international system.
"This is the largest diplomatic conference ever to take place in Paris, with over 40,000 participants, and it is supposed to produce a binding agreement obligating every nation on planet Earth to agree to climate goals in order to hold 'global warming' to less than two degrees Celsius," McGuire wrote.
"But this is the world's most serious attempt to install through covert means a permanent world government, something like Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. What appears to be a somewhat benevolent and soft totalitarian state with a bright happy face on it is in fact the most ruthless elimination of national sovereignty and the independent nation state the world has ever seen."
