WHAT IN THE WORLD IN GOING ON?
The Beatles, the wildly popular, and now legendary, singing group from the UK, in 1971 made the equally legendary song, "IMAGINE":
Imagine there's no heaven, It's easy if you try
No hell below us, Above us only sky
Imagine all the people, Living for today
Imagine there's no countries, It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion, too
Imagine all the people, Living life in peace
You may say that I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us, And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger, A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people, Sharing all the world
You may say that I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us, And the world will live as one
Yes. Imagine. Four teenagers, with barely a high school education, succeed in helping transform an entire generation (or two) into thinking of the possibilities of there being
No Heaven & No Hell
Just living for the day
No countries, no nations
No religion, No God
The World as One
Life as Atheists, Globalists, Socialists and as Communists.
The Beatles also popularized the song "Come Together", and, they are not alone. This has been in the imagination of people since ancient times. The Bible records that about 3,000 years ago, mankind made the first effort at a Global Community (in or around 900 BC). Now, technology has made it feasible, and it is happening - a real chance at a GLOBAL COMMUNITY.
ONE WORLD COMMUNITY (and GOVERNMENT) - What is it?
1. GLOBALISM. Publications like Wikipedia or "The Economist" deliberately confuse the term Globalism and the aims of Globalism by asserting there are various kinds of 'Globalism'. (disassembling the word into component parts and delving into fabricated systems).
Merriam-Webster's definition is a close approximation, saying 'Globalism' is "a national policy of treating the whole world as a proper sphere for political influence, similar to imperialism or internationalism".
Socialists and communists say Globalism is the key to worldwide prosperity. But, the truth is that they know it is the key to controlling people under the dictatorial rule of godless communism.
Read this introduction by the Commission for Global Governance "The task before UNESCO,” said its first Director-General Julian Huxley in 1946, is “the emergence of a single world culture” by transferring "full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization.”
The “new world order” will be a socialist, authoritarian global government and court with “global rule of law” and a “one-world economy,”.
The recommendations of the Commission on Global Governance (http://ruby.fgcu.edu/courses/twimberley/EnviroPhilo/OurGlobalNeighborhood.pdf,) if implemented, will bring all the people of the world into a global neighborhood managed by a world-wide bureaucracy, under the direct authority of a minute handful of appointed individuals, and policed by thousands of individuals, paid by accredited NGOs, certified to support a belief system which contains ideas that are foreign to the American experience, and ignores other values and ideas that are precious to the American experience.
2. AGENDA 21 - what it IS.
Further evidence is found in Agenda 21 documents. Agenda 21 initially claimed to be a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment. https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/outcomedocuments/agenda21
Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the Statement of principles for the Sustainable Management of Forests were adopted by more than 178 Governments at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 3 to 14 June 1992.
Although touted as 'a non-binding resolution' this UN agency formed The Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) in December 1992 to ensure effective follow-up of UNCED, to monitor and report on implementation of the agreements at the local, national, regional and international levels. It was agreed that a five year review of Earth Summit progress would be made in 1997 by the United Nations General Assembly meeting in special session.
The full implementation of Agenda 21, the Program for Further Implementation of Agenda 21 and the Commitments to the Rio principles, were strongly reaffirmed at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) held in Johannesburg, South Africa from 26 August to 4 September 2002.
Agenda 21 has now become involved in forty areas ranging from SOCIAL and ECONOMIC DIMENSIONS to poverty, consumption issues, health matters, deforestation, legal instruments and implementation and everything in between.
A link to this document can be found at https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/content/documents/Agenda21.pdf
The United States is a signatory country to Agenda 21. But adherents quickly remind us that because Agenda 21 is "a legally non-binding statement of intent" and not a treaty, the United States Senate did not hold a formal debate or vote on it. It is therefore not considered to be law under Article Six of the United States Constitution, or say they say.
However, President GEORGE H.W. BUSH was one of the 178 heads of government who signed the final text of the agreement at the Earth Summit in 1992, and in the same year Representatives NANCY PELOSI, Eliot Engel and William Broomfield spoke in support of United States House of Representatives Concurrent Resolution 353, supporting implementation of Agenda 21 in the United States.
Then president, BILL CLINTON, signed a 1993 Executive Order, creating the President's Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD) is explicitly charged with recommending a national action plan for sustainable development to the President. So, bypassing Congress, Clinton, made it law.
The PCSD is composed of leaders from government and industry, as well as from environmental, labor and civil rights organizations.
The PCSD submitted its report, "Sustainable America: A New Consensus", to the President in early 1996. In the absence of a multi-sectoral consensus on how to achieve sustainable development in the United States, the PCSD was conceived to formulate recommendations for the implementation of Agenda 21.
In the United States, over 528 cities are members of ICLEI, an international sustainability organization that helps to implement the Agenda 21 and Local Agenda 21 concepts across the world. The United States has nearly half of the ICLEI's global membership of 1,200 cities promoting sustainable development at a local level.
The United States also has one of the most comprehensively documented Agenda 21 status reports. In response to the opposition, Don Knapp, U.S. spokesman for the ICLEI, has said "Sustainable development is not a top-down conspiracy from the U.N., but a bottom-up push from local governments".
3. ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT
The Bible tells us of a time when world events will collide in a world-wide cataclysm. We are seeing what appears to be the finals acts of that day.
The Bible warns us of wars and rumors of wars, nations rising against nations, earthquakes, famines, drought, disease and death. We are warned of false Messiahs, a horrific persecution of Christians, world-wide and a great falling away from the faith.
All of these things have already occurred and have been ongoing since the death and resurrection of Jesus - except for the Apostasy, the great falling away, but we now have signs that the Apostasy has begun.
We are told that "AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS", seemingly the first FIVE SEALS as described above and in the book of Matthew chapter 24 and the book of Revelation chapters 6 and 7, the world will witness great cosmic disturbances as never seen by mankind.
During these times, the Bible (Daniel and Revelation) foretells of coming a World Government, headed by a highly intelligent and charismatic individual who is able to lead a great and fierce army, conquering many. He will be able to deceive many and to do miraculous deeds and will take control of an world wide empire and the lives of every person on earth.
I have outlined the SEALS of the Tribulation, below for easy reference in order to point out what is now at hand. I am showing Jesus Word to His disciples, taken from the book of Matthew, chapter 24, and I have added the corollary verses from the Book of Revelation: https://www.whitestone2014.com/the-tribulation-ez-to-understand
