World government has dominated my thinking this week, and it appears that we are witnessing a big deal. The Bible clearly teaches that the Antichrist is coming and he will rule over a world government (Dan. 7:23, 9:24-27; Matt. 24:15; II Thess. 2:3-4; Rev. 13:7-8).
Two things are required for this to happen: One, there must be a decline in nationalism or patriotism, and Two, there must be a rise in globalism or world government.
Both of these things are happening right now, and it seems significant that they are happening in the generation that has witnessed the return of the Jews to the Promised Land (Matt. 24:32-35).
Consider the following as evidence of a decline in nationalism or patriotism: efforts to ignore or discard the U.S. Constitution; demonstrators burning the U.S. flag; a strong push for open borders; the elimination of voter ID and letting illegal aliens vote (for example the Florida election); people chanting “death to America;” the growing disdain for America’s military; NFL football players taking a knee during the National Anthem; the destruction of National Monuments in the U.S.; the demonizing of “white nationalists,” “white nationalism,” etc.
The above list could be longer, but it is long enough for people to see what is taking place in America, if they want to.
There is little doubt that nationalism or patriotism is declining in America (and the same is true of the EU and other places in the world), but there is absolutely nothing wrong with being white or being a patriot.
Consider the following as evidence of a rise in globalism or world government: efforts to create a New World Order; agreements to merge nations, redistribute wealth and surrender national sovereignty; calls to strengthen the UN; formation of groups of nations such as the EU; calls for a world government by 2030; the rise of multiculturalism; the creation of world courts, a World Health Organization, a World Trade Organization, etc.; the effort to create a global ethic, etc.
The above is another list that could be longer, but it is long enough to discern that globalism or world government is rising.
The decline of nationalism and the rise of globalism are preparing the way for the Tribulation Period and the rise of the Antichrist (events that will happen after the Rapture of the Church).
On Nov. 6, 2018, Pres. Trump travelled to Chattanooga, TN to speak at a rally on behalf of Marsha Blackburn’s campaign for the U.S. Senate. A musician named Lee Greenwood attended and sang his famous patriotic song called “God Bless The USA.” About 10,000 people joined in to sing along with Mr. Greenwood; and while they were singing “God Bless The USA,” Pres. Trump walked up on the stage. There were Democrats in the audience, and they started chanting “Racist country! Racist song!” Nationalism or patriotism is on the decline in the U.S.
About the same time (I didn’t see a date on the article), it was reported that the globalists at the UN don’t like Pres. Trump’s “America First” policies. The globalists are offended by his public criticism of their globalist agenda. Globalism or world government is on the rise, and globalists are offended that a leader of a nation would put the welfare of his nation above their globalist agenda. They are not alone.
In many nations, citizens are unhappy with their leaders and are demanding change. God will grant their wishes by giving them a king (the Antichrist) that they will detest even more than the one they have.
On Nov. 3, 2018, it was reported that the UN Refugee Agency commanded Pres. Trump to let the people in the caravan that is approaching the U.S.-Mexico border into the U.S. The article doesn’t say it, but I don’t think a UN agency can force the U.S. President to comply with their orders.
On Nov. 11, 2018, Pres. Trump was in France to observe the 100th anniversary of the end of WW I. French Pres. Macron called Nationalism (putting America First) treason. He defended the UN and EU and said Patriotism (putting world government first) is the exact opposite of Nationalism. For whatever it is worth, the patriots in the U.S. fight and die to protect the U.S., not the UN or world government.
Mr. Macron was trying to redefine patriotism, demonize Pres. Trump’s America First policy, and support the UN and the merger of nations. The decline of nationalism or patriotism and the rise of globalism or world government are a big deal.
