Posted on 10/14/2011 4:19:51 AM PDT by Kaslin
With Greece on the precipice of default, and Portugal and Italy approaching the ledge, the European monetary union appears in peril.
Should it collapse, the European Union itself could be in danger, for economic nationalism is rising in Europe. Which raises a larger question.
Is the New World Order, the great 20th century project of Western transnational elites, unraveling?
The NWO dates back as far as Woodrow Wilson's League of Nations, which a Republican Senate refused to enter. FDR, seeking to succeed where his mentor had failed, oversaw the creation of a United Nations, an International Monetary Fund and a World Bank.
In 1951 came the European Coal and Steel Community, love child of Jean Monnet, which evolved into the European Economic Community, the European Community and the European Union. A European Central Bank and a new currency, the euro, followed.
The hidden ultimate goal of economic union was political union -- a United States of Europe as model and core of the 21st century world government.
With the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the EU expanded to the east. And the New World Order, formally proclaimed by George H.W. Bush in 1991, was out in the open and seemingly the wave of the future.
Progress was swift.
A North American Free Trade Agreement, bringing the United States, Mexico and Canada into a common market that George W. Bush predicted would encompass the hemisphere from Patagonia to Prudhoe Bay, was signed in 1993.
A World Trade Organization was born in 1994. U.S. sovereignty was surrendered to a global body where America had the same single vote as Azerbaijan.
The Kyoto Protocol, brought home by Vice President Al Gore, set up a regime to control the worldwide emission of greenhouse gases.
An International Criminal Court, a permanent Nuremberg Tribunal to prosecute war crimes and crimes against humanity, was created.
A doctrine of limited sovereignty had been asserted. Elites claimed a higher law than national sovereignty, "a responsibility to protect," enabled them to intervene in countries where human rights violations were egregious.
Serbia, bombed by Bill Clinton for 78 days for fighting to hold its ancient province of Kosovo, was the first victim.
Suddenly, however, the progression has stalled. Indeed, the New World Order seems to be unraveling.
Emerging powers like China, India and Brazil are demanding they be exempt from restrictions that developed countries seek to impose. The follow-up summits to Kyoto -- Copenhagen in 2009, Cancun in 2010 -- ended in failure. The Doha round of world trade negotiations ended in failure.
China refuses to let her currency float lest she lose the trade surpluses that have enabled her to amass $3 trillion in cash reserves.
Protectionism is rising. Americans chaff at a new world economic order that has led to deindustrialization of their country. Congress is talking of defunding the U.N. as anti-Western and anti-Israel.
Why is the New World Order suddenly going in reverse?
A primary reason is the resurgence of nationalism. Nations are putting national interests ahead of any perceived global interests.
A second reason is the decline of a West whose project this was. We no longer dictate to the world, and the world no longer marches to our tune. The deficits and indebtedness of Western nations preclude more of the big wealth transfers in foreign aid that once bought us influence.
A third reason is demography. Not one European nation has a birth rate sufficient to replace its population. Europe's nations are aging, shrinking, dying. A depopulating Germany cannot carry forever the deficit-debtor nations of Club Med. The oldest nation, Japan, is on schedule to lose 25 million people by 2050, as is neighbor Russia.
Militarily, America remains the most powerful nation. But Iraq and Afghanistan have bled the country and left us without the certain attainment of our goals. Old allies like Turkey go their separate ways.
Ethno-nationalism also explains a disintegrating world order. Aspiring nations like Scotland, Catalonia, Padania, Flanders, Ingushetia, Dagestan, East Turkestan, Kurdistan and Baluchistan seek a place in the sun, free of the cloying embrace of the mother country.
The desire of peoples for nations all their own, where their own language, faith and culture predominate and their own kind rule to the exclusion of all others, is everywhere winning out over multiculturalism and transnationalism.
Through history there have been attempts to unite the world.
The Roman Empire. Catholicism. Islam. The West that ruled much of mankind from Columbus to the mid-20th century. Communism, which conquered half of Europe and Asia but arose and fell in a single century.
With the death of communism and the decline of the West -- in relative population and power -- Islam has become the largest religion, China the world's emerging superpower, and Asia the continent of the future.
Could this still be the Second American Century?
Not the way we are going.
Certainly, it is not. We will fight it tooth, and nail, but ultimately there will be one. If there wasn’t to be one, then the Bible wouldn’t mention all of the beheaded Christians.
In any event, these collapses are exactly what the NWO wants, while there are black swans, and no one has complete control, there will be some control for several years. The NWO is a concept and goal that surpasses lifetimes, it’s something that has been pushed for, basically, forever. Its names have changed, and the players involved come and go, but the fight is omnipresent.
I think this was a mistake. What goes well for one goes well for all. But, what goes wrong for one (Example: Greece) goes wrong for all, as well.
Thatcher was right.
Until there are no Rothchilds, Rockefellers and Soros’s left on the face of the earth, as long as they retain their wealth and ownership of central banks, the New World Order is live and well.
Certainly, it is not. We will fight it tooth, and nail, but ultimately there will be one. If there wasnt to be one, then the Bible wouldnt mention all of the beheaded Christians.
Oh that's right, no Christian has ever been beheaded since Luke 9:9, and surely the people living in the days of Nero and Domitian were safe and secure with no fears whatsoever. We can completely ignore the first three chapters of Revelation or be like Prophetic Paragon Tim LaHaye and say that the Churches aren't literal but are allegorical characterizations of the evolving church divided into seven progressive periods.
The Thousand Years of Islamic Caliphate a few centuries ago? No Christians harmed there either (actually closer to 60 million killed by the sword). And the six million Christians slaughtered in Africa in the last decade literally by machetés? Didn't happen? (sigh) Prophecy has been seen fulfilled before our eyes in the past 2000 years and the Futurists are blind to it saying "not yet, but maybe tomorrow."
A huge problem with the Futurist interpretation of Rev 20:4-6 is that they make the perverse claim that somehow the lives of people taken during this Future 1000 years is more important than those taken in the past two thousand years - as if anyone could be saved absent the Paraclete. Do you want to be first in the Kingdom of Heaven? Then don't die now for Christ, wait until after this "rapture" event and get killed then - only then will you matter to God. Stephen's stoning? Died as a missionary preaching in the Amazon? God doesn't care about that according to the Futurists. But if you die at the hands of a future "Beast", well then, statues and murals of your faith will decorate heaven.
Dittos with this One World fetish that Futurists have. History makes it perfectly clear that this is Satan's goal, and it seems that the Futurists, if they have been ever exposed to Genesis 11:1-9, see failure after failure on Satan's part, reliving a new generation like it was Ground Hog Day, only to say "God loses and Satan Wins in the End" with God's Declarative Will thwarted and we get the Futurist's Fantasy of a One World Government.
I'm sorry, I can't agree with the Futurists and their characterization of God as an enfeebled cosmic character that is a cat-toy for Satan, and even fail when He allegedly personally comes down to physically reign. When God shut down Babel in a very dramatic way so that there would never be a One World Government, we can look around today and see that this has withstood over four centuries of time - yet the Futurist persist in his/her hope that God's Will will fail and that Satan will win.
Sickening. You can keep your God of Fail.
They will keep it alive, at all costs, with lies.
Once we reach the Triple Witching Hour on sovereign default I expect the US, Euros, ChiComs and Saudis to come together in a secret meeting and all agree to one huge, bodacious, immense lie to keep things rolling along as they have been.
Consider King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the earth’s final age as interpreted by Daniel:
“As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay. And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever, just as you saw that a stone was cut from a mountain by no human hand, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold. A great God has made known to the king what shall be after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.”
New World Order becoming unravelled? Are you kidding? Its just starting..
This is rich. Here Buchanan is talking about the European model of global governance failing - and somehow you feel that this petty club of socialist white guys in a declining section of Europe are somehow going to get stronger when the empirical evidence screams otherwise.
First off, the Daniel 7 reference is just a glaring indication that you know nothing of the topic and have naively drunken the swill of the modern day False Prophets. Second, there are many interesting interpretations of this passage that doesn't take the cop-out and say "I'm not going to bother trying to figure this out using history, facts and reason, I would rather come up with new unprovable and unsupportable speculations based on today's reading of some guy's political blog."
The fourth beast in question here, to the Futurists, completely ignores 7:7 "it was different from all the beasts that were before it" and claims, that like the three preceding beasts, it is yet another purely political government. Who cares what insipid speculations one has about ten horns and little horns when the Futurist can't even compose a theory that doesn't contradict the only literal description in the text!
Furthermore, you gratuitously insert "Antichrist" when it is never mentioned in Daniel or Revelation. Who gave you license to insert your own speculation into Scripture? Did you get a Revelation from God or is this like Madlibs where you can insert anything from a list of choices?
Then we have Genesis 11, which teaches that there won't be a "world government" because God declared and acted in a manner to effect a dispersion. To this day we have an effective Divine Apartheid throughout the world that is painfully manifest just by turning on the television. Just because you personally may have fallen prey to the PC-Diversity dogma, the vast majority of this world is still nationalistic, xenophobic and strongly racist, so projecting your own thoughts on to the entire planet is, shall we admit - arrogant?
If we look at the many failures of Futurists to predict the future, as if all the prophecies of the Bible remain to be fulfilled, the honest observer would have to reject any such babblings by the Futurist. The "ten horns", back in the 70s was forcefully said to be the European Common Market. We have seen how that was shot down. Gog and Magog were supposed to be the Soviet Union - even going so far as re-interpreting Ezekiel 38:2 so that "Rosh" didn't mean "chief" but meant "Russia", and all of your Futurist False Prophets failed spectacularly in missing the collapse of the Soviet Empire.
In fact, every prediction of the Futurist Cabal is always wrong, a record that is worse than that of a broken clock correctly telling the time.
They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. The lunatic claims by the Futurists stubbornly follow the same grossly flawed methodology giddily expecting success, arrogantly boasting to be the last word in seer saying, tarot reading and crystal ball gazing - only to be shown, like that aging fool Harold Camping, that it was nothing but lies based on vanity.
The fourth beast is unlike the first three, not because it is the political unit Rome, but because it represents something other than brutal political government. Through the ages we can see that Catholicism, Islam, Communism and now Gaia worship are not based on a strongman dictator with an all powerful military, they were nearly globe spanning in their power and hatred against Christianity, all of these things match the description in Daniel and Revelation.
IOW, just as the Apostle John said in his letters, the spirit of Antichrist was alive and well in his day, when Daniel was to be unsealed and Revelation was left open because the Day is now (beginning first century AD).
Your formula must reject too much Scripture, and it clearly contradicts broad categories of orthodox doctrine, so no matter how much you hope and wish - it can't be true.
I don’t normally respond to babbling megalomaniacs, but... what are you talking about?
Nevermind, I don’t care.
Europe is unravelling, but Europe may not be especially relevant to the new world order. The world today is divided into three camps: the lazy, the ambitious, and the incompetent. Europe and Japan have gotten lazy: old, comfortable, risk averse, reflexively protectionist, and collapsing demographically. In the ambitious camp are the rising powers that have figured out they don’t have to be poor, that market economies work. The incompetents are the basket cases.
Countries can move from one camp to another. BO is currently trying to move the U.S. from the ambitious camp to the lazy camp. If he succeeds, we — like Europe — will be incidental to building the new world order.
China, India, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea, Taiwan, and other rising powers are going to drive global growth for the next couple of generations. We can be part of the growth caucus if we are willing to compete. Or we can choose to be an also ran, and settle in for a long decline.
It might have been postponed, but I doubt that. I would rather expect a renewed vigor for it inevitable fulfillment.
Every "crisis" puts another brick in the wall.
Remember the tower of Babel..........
“Sickening. You can keep your God of Fail.”
What is it about reformation theology causes it’s adherents to become so sour?
What is it about reformation theology causes its adherents to become so sour?
Are we supposed to be excited and thrilled about blasphemy and the apostate making Christianity look foolish and cult-like with this insane Futurist Fantasies?
What orthodox views (whether "reformed" or not) of eschatology brings are hope and joy, not despair and promises of failure that come from the Futurist camp.
When we read the eschatology passages from Daniel, the prophets and in Revelation, we know that the trials and tribulations we individually suffer under work out for the Glory of God in that the Church - the Remnant - will remain until the Parousia. For Futurists, you have no hope, no vision of a God who is involved. Futurists have a Deist model where God only acts to give you goodies and when it gets real tough out there, will swoop down, transform you and drop you into a seven year party and rave scene. This is the vanity religion of self, with no care or concern for the Church or for the next generation of believers. When the Going Gets Rough, I Get Raptured. Explain how that works out for those getting their heads chopped off today in central Africa.
Take for example the foundational premise of all Futurists - that God couldn't care less about the "parenthetical Church" rather all affection and plans are for the "apple of His eye" - the people who rejected, crucified and continue to hate Jesus Christ. Other than the premise being heretical, the idea that the extent of our LORD's involvement in our lives is to do that cross thing and then bless us by satisfying our felt needs rejects the Gospel and substitutes Genie Jesus the Cosmic Butler sort of relationship with the Almighty Holy Creator.
When we read, what is normally interpreted by the Futurists as passages referring to a future Israel, in the context of the mystery revealed - there is hope and joy knowing that while "the Beast" manifest in every generation since Pentecost endeavors to attack Christ and His Church, that we have a Savior who does more than grants us a path out of Hell and a Lexus in the driveway, He gives us the hope and strength to finish.
The "nations surrounding the Holy City" passages don't refer to the secular city of Jerusalem, it talks about the Church where our LORD's enemies are legion and are pressing to harm the Church. Then we read where God confounds the enemy, causing them to harm themselves in the process, sparing the "holy city". This gives the Church living under the persecution of Rome, Catholicism, Islam, Nazi Germany, Soviet Communism or today's Western Gaia worship, and the oppressive ideological/religious regime of tomorrow hope in that like all of the predecessors, they collapsed do to their own confusion within the ranks.
Futurists, of course, saying this doesn't concern the Church, nor does it concern The Now, is just words on a page that can be wrested in any convenient manner to support wild and irresponsible fantasies of the next "Prophetic" book and video author.
It isn't sour, far from it. There is joy and hope in the large sense mixed with frustration in the other in that so many people are Lost and are Hell bound determined to spread the Fear Uncertainty and Doubt that fully characterizes the Premillennial Dysfunctionalist "faith".
You post is such a hodge-podge of misinformation that it’s hardly worth responding to.
On thing I’ve noticed over the years about people who hold to your theology, they are almost uniformly bitter, petty, intellectually haughty and condescending.
“And what does that have to do with my points???”, you may ask. Namely this...
“A tree is known by its fruits.”
The very strident, uncharitable, rude and arrogant attitude that characterizes so many of the adherents of your theology tells me all I need to know about it’s “truthfulness”.
Since when did having, (in you estimation), the “right opinion” release you from the requirements of Christ-like humility?
You lampoon and mock the beliefs of other sincere Christians without even the humility to realize that you might just possibly be wrong... and in so dong you might actually be mocking the truth of the Scripture.
Friend, has intellectual pride poisoned you faith?
Thanks for the post Kaslin.
I don’t think Communism is dead.
It’s always been here only the
As long as the education system
is run by “progressives” / Commies,
they will eventually out breed
I think that your reply to The Theophilus was very civil.
It was easier to understand at least.
You post is such a hodge-podge of misinformation that its hardly worth responding to.
Translation: You have no rebuttal because it would require facts not in evidence and Scripture that isn't there.
So go ahead and insult me because it requires less energy and zero intellect.
On thing Ive noticed over the years about people who hold to your theology, they are almost uniformly bitter, petty, intellectually haughty and condescending.
So how should we characterize your broad brush of hate filled slander towards two millennia of Biblical scholarship? Dispenationalism has only been around for a little over one hundred years, and since the 70s bears little resemblance to the original system. If anybody owns arrogance it is you and the current crop of Futurists who are completely incapable of supporting your theology that is blasphemous and heretical - so you just go ahead and insult everyone who doesn't drink from the Kool-Aid.
Since when did having, (in you estimation), the right opinion release you from the requirements of Christ-like humility?
LOL! Your whole post is projection! I'm sorry, I find the hypocrisy of your words breathtaking. You insult me and every Christian believer since John the Baptist and then demand "Christ-like" humility. I'm sure you have never read the Bible enough to find those passages where our LORD calls folks "a brood of serpents", "white washed sepulchers", "hypocrites" because that all sounds like "humility" when He is calling out the Jewish leaders, lawyers and power brokers and telling them to their face that they are predestined to Hell. (Matt 11:20-25; Jn 10:26)
I'm sorry that your "faith" is so fragile that you can only build yourself up by tearing others down. Go your way in Peace.
“... You insult me and every Christian believer since John the Baptist and then demand “Christ-like” humility....”
Surely, this is satire.
