“I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me." (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
And if you look wholeheartedly for God and you choose to find Him, “God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons.” (Acts 10:34)
The Apostle Paul wrote to the Romans 5:1, “We have been made right in God's sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.”
The choice battle between the god of this World and JHWH has existed since the fall of Satan. Biblical history records events of the struggle from the Tower of Babel through the ages to the fear of the Man of Sin.
The catechism of events that will lead the news in 2013 fall into three categories. From the story of Babel and the desired success there were three requirements. The world needs one world government and one world finance with common value for the exchange of goods and services. Most importantly, the spirit in every human must be fed by one world religion.
The leadership of Reagan, Bush and Henry Kissinger introduced the formal idea for one world Government, one world Finance and the need for one world Religion. Christians have been persecuted due to the total rejection of one world order sought by the god of this World, Satan.
In John 15:18 Jesus said, “If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it.”
It is said by many in the world, lets spread the wealth around and place everyone on the same level? In the U.S. today we try to never let anyone lose in a sport or a game so that no one thinks less of themselves. There are more trophies sold today than at any other time in history in an effort to make everyone equal whether merited or in participation.
When people mature they learn the reality of life. Our government has apologized to the world for American success. To those that can, they do! To the losers of the world the U.S. gives an awesome amount of funding to those who do not have a history of winning as we seek to make friends.
The financial crisis of the U.S. is being experienced by almost every country in the world. In fact, 30 countries are listed as having the potential for bankruptcy, with the U.S., Russia and the United Kingdom located at the head of that list. Ten previously failed countries, including France, Spain, Italy and others, seek a one world financial system as a solution to their problem. What could occur if we had a one world government that will simplify and unify into a one world finance system? This New World Order continues to be suggested as that solution.
A NEW WORLD ORDER is proposed in various media outlets to be the answer for violence, population, jobs and the financial crunch of the world today. In the future, during the Tribulation Period just before the second coming of Christ, God tells His elect to come out of that One World Order. (Revelation 18:4 KJV) “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” as You, Lord, give me life.
To come out from this World Order we must commit to the message from Psalms 119:93 that, “I will never forget Your commandments, for by them You give me life.”
Today, my prayer is the same as recorded in Psalm 138:8. “The Lord will work out His plans for my life — for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for You made me.” Psalm 27:13 records, “I am confident I will see the LORD's goodness while I am here in the land of the living.”
