Will Jesus protect prosperous Christian-lifestyles?

I was first introduced to the “One World Government or New World Order” in 1974. I was given a book entitled, “None dare call it Conspiracy”. During the years that followed I paid attention to world news and engaged in further study of the subject. When I shared what I discovered, both privately and from the pulpit, people reacted negatively. Though I was mostly ridiculed when I mentioned the subject during the seventies and eighties, I persisted with my studies and news gathering. Then in 1990, thanks to President George Bush Senior, the “New World Order” was officially announced to exist following his invasion of Iraq. Since then, believing in a coming New World Order or One World Government has become fashionable both in worldly and Christian circles.

Now, being in fashion is one thing, but the implication of its agenda is another. To take the “in vogue” approach to the New World Order is exactly what those behind the movement want us all to do. This allows them to implement legislation openly or subtly without too much attention being paid to it because it can easily be sold to the masses as necessary in order to maintain the status quo for the good of all mankind; particularly those in the first world nations. If any opposition arises against any national or UN legislation on the One Worlders’ agenda it is soon quashed in the interests of the overall good of the “majority”. Thus we now have Western societies that will accept any legislation as long as it promises, or appears to promise, that the present, prosperous, Western-lifestyle they are use to will continue forever. This even includes legislation that undermines the established legislation that has served to maintain the lifestyle they are now experiencing.

Multiculturalism, political correctness, hate literature, world religion, personal sexual preference, etc, are all contrived to contribute to the “planned” chaos we are witnessing around the world. Those who are most deceived and the most vocal are the Sodomites. A few years back they were encouraged to emerge from their “closet” existence and become accepted in society – fools! They are not aware of their coming fate at the hands of the One Worlders! The agenda of the One Worlders is for them to “come out” and identify themselves! Then, when the One Worlders make their move in the very near future, the majority of Sodomites will be known to them and easily rounded up. And they, along with all others who have no place in the One Worlders’ imaginary utopia for mankind, will be culled just as mercilessly as Christians, Jews, Muslims etc until the determined number of controllable, desirable, humans remain alive to serve their One World masters.

Christians are the most gullible regarding these matters. This is a result of refusing to believe for nearly forty years that such a “One World Government” agenda was underway; even in their denominations and congregations. And most frightening of all is the misguided belief that Jesus’ promised return will occur before any action by the One Worlders is taken because He will not let His people lose their current worldly-lifestyle to some Satanic plot by non-believers! Nowhere in the Bible does God promise to uphold the modern, Western Christian-lifestyle! How can those who are crucified to the world hope God will maintain their worldly lifestyle while 90% of the world is spiritually lost and living in poverty? Poverty which has been created in order to sustain first world prosperity! Are we not pilgrims passing through? Do we not look for a heavenly dwelling prepared by God Himself, wherein is righteousness? Is not God our sure reward? Are we not called to seek and save the lost? Are we not called to go and make disciples of the nations – not exploit them? Hebrew 11:13-17

History declares the foolishness of every generation. This generation will go in like-manner as those of past years who also hoped against hope that war, famine, destruction, depression, recession would not visit them; but it will!

What we and our children face in the not too distance future is more subtle than anything previously experience in the history of the world. The enemy will not be visible on some distant horizon or on some over-the-horizon radar screen. The enemy is already in our homes, our churches, our schools, our universities, our governments, our work places, our streets and our families! When the One Worlders make their final move to implement their plans, their forces will have undermined the fabric of Western, Christian society so effectively that the remnant, so often preached and written about, will indeed be all that remains! Though on the run, the remnant will overcome despite the overwhelming odds.

“But know this, that in the last days grievous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, railers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, implacable, slanders, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, traitors, headstrong, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof: from these also turn away.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5

Only one question remains to be asked: “How’s the oil level in your lamp?” Matthew 25:1-13.
