One World Government by Stealth

800px-Pieter_Bruegel_the_Elder_-_The_Tower_of_Babel_(Vienna)_-_Google_Art_Project_-_editedThe Daily Mail recently ran an article on how the British people were tricked into joining the EU without understanding its true nature.  The article states,

The real problem the British people have had with the ‘European project’, as its insiders call it, is that they have never really begun to understand its real nature, and what was always intended to be its ultimate goal.

The chief reason for this is that our politicians have never properly explained it to us.

What makes this so much worse is that those who were most enthused by it, such as Heath, knew full well what ‘the project’ was really about — the plan to weld all Europe together under an unprecedented form of super-government.

When I studied international trade, I was taught that the EU was just one step on the road to a one world government.  The plan was to create regional governments like the EU and the North American Union and then to meld all of the regional governments together under one global authority.  It looks like the EU is ready to expand on this project:

Leaders of the European Union and Russia met in Brussels on December 20 and 21 for the 30th EU-Russia Summit, continuing a process of convergence and interdependence that is leading toward political, economic, and social merger.

Will they get their one world government?  Only time will tell.  Some historicists say that there will be such a government but that it will be short-lived.  Others compare the global governance project to the Tower of Babel and say that God will put an end to their attempts before they reach fruition.  I do not have a firm opinion either way.

Relevant verses from a historicist perspective:

Revelation 16:13-16:  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Revelation 17:12-14:  And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.  These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.  These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

Roman Catholicism and Socialism

Here is an interesting article linking the Roman Catholic Church to socialist ideologies:

At the present time, it is becoming more apparent that the Roman Catholic Church is first and foremost a socialist system.

The Identity of Antichrist and the Year 2015

Book_of_Revelation021

Revelation 13:18:  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Here is a link to an article discussing how the number 666 relates to Papal Rome and the identity of Antichrist:

The Antichrist Has Been Revealed!!: 

666 equals LATEINOS in Greek!!

from ReformationOnline

Another post from the same source alluding to 2015 can be found here:  http://www.reformation.org/damballah.html

This article gives a fairly traditional historicist interpretation of Revelation 13.

Interestingly, many historicists seem to link the downfall of Antichrist with the second decade of the 21st century.  This has to do with Revelation 11 and the 1260 years of Antichrist’s reign.  This article fingers the year 2015, stating:

Many of the commentators on the Book of Revelation, such as Adam Clarke and Baptist pastor John Dowling, predicted that 2015 would be a milestone in the demise of the Papacy. Here is a quote from his book written in 1840:

If, according to Adam Clarke, in 755, when the temporal sovereignty of the popes was firmly established, then they will end in 175 years, or 2015. (Dowling, An Exposition of the Prophecies, p. 191).

Based on this prediction, time is running out for the Papal dynasty.

Time will tell if this time calculation is correct, although it does not appear that the author took into consideration the changes from the ancient Roman calendar to the Gregorian calendar we use today.  Some commentators arrive at different dates when the calendar conversion is taken into account.

In any case, the Bible tells us what will happen when Antichrist falls:

Revelation 16:17-21:  And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.  And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.  And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.  And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.  And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

These are definitely very interesting times we live in!

“The Bible tells us that the kings of the earth will gather together against God Almighty and his anointed  Jesus Christ to do battle. This is found in 3 separate places in scripture so there can be no mistake as to  what will happen.

Psalms 2

[2] The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

Acts 4

[26] The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

Revelation 16

[13] And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Nigel Farage and the EU’s Goal of a One World Government

In an incredibly powerful interview, today MEP (Member European Parliament) Nigel Farage told King World News, “They even want to get eurozone countries to change their constitutions, to write in their constitutions that they will obey all orders from Brussels.”   Farage also warned “So it is very, very difficult to ignore those voices who have been telling me for 20 years that behind all of this there are a group of people that want to create a one world government … it’s beginning to stare us in the face.”

Catholic church to lose historic property tax exemption in Italy

Italy’s Catholic Church will be forced to pay taxes starting in 2013 after the EU pressured the country’s government to pass a controversial law stripping the Church of its historic property tax exemption.

­The Catholic Church in Italy is excluded from paying taxes on its land if at least a part of a Church property is used non-commercially – for instance, a chapel in a bed-and-breakfast.

The Jesuit Agenda and the Evangelical/Protestant Church

. . . and the world hears them

Understand the Times/Lighthouse Trails Special Report

According to Bible prophecy, a one-world religion that will offer the promise of peace throughout the world is going to commence prior to Christ’s return. To most, this global body will seem like a wonderful thing and very possibly will be a pseudo-Christianity (coming in the name of “Christ”); however, contrary to how the masses will view it, it will actually help establish and set up the antichrist and his one- world government.

In order for this to happen, all religions must come together in an ecumenical plan. Today, as part of this Satanic scheme, the evangelical/Protestant church is being drawn seductively into the Roman Catholic church, largely through what we call “The Jesuit Agenda.” Incredibly, while the evidence is obvious to some, the majority of proclaiming Christians are not at all aware it is happening.

So, what should we expect if we are…

Johannes Wollebius: the contrast between Reformed and popish-futurist views of antichrist

Reformed Covenanter

In this post, the comments of Johannes Wollebius closely correspond to those of John Calvin concerning the popish-futurist notion of antichrist:

The great Antichrist, is he, who under the name of Christ’s Vicar, persecutes him,

The Rules.

I. The name Antichrist belongs not to one person alone, but to a whole state or order of men, as it were in the same Kingdom succeeding each other.

Even as the word of High Priest.  He is not then opposite to Christ, as one person is to another, in respect of substance, but he is opposite to him in respect of quality or office.

II. The Papists will have Antichrist to be one particular man; a Jew of the Tribe of Dan, the Jews Messiah, and the restorer of their Religion, who shall reign at Jerusalem three years and a half, shall fight with Henoch [Enoch] and Eliah [Elijah], shall offer to…
