The Coming New World Order

The Coming New World Order

The current world order is breaking up; it is being shaken to its very foundations. The stage is being set up for a new world order to come on the scene.

The current world financial and monetary system is under tremendous pressure.

The crisis in mortgage backed securities has left the American Banks and Securities firms desperate for capital. Two American Securities firms failed in one weekend.

The crisis is an opportunity for foreign investors to purchase control of American banks and Securities firms. With the price of oil at $110 per barrel, it is reported that the Sovereign Wealth funds in six Persian Gulf countries, including Kuwait, the Arab Emirates and Qatar have amassed 1.7 trillion dollars. They are now in a position to buy into and control major Banks and Securities firms in the US.

The control of American Banks and Securities companies by foreign investors could result in those institutions becoming subject to Sharia law. The ramifications of this are far reaching. America could lose control of America.

There is an incredible transfer of wealth from America to Mid-east oil countries and to China’s industrial manufacturing complex. Any thinking person must realize that there will come a tipping point. This tipping point is fast approaching in many areas. We have learned that there are now more internet users in China than in America.

The signs of America’s decline are everywhere, the fall of the dollar being one indication. The almost certain control of Iran over Iraq and it’s oil, if America withdraws, which seems inevitable if the Democrats win the coming election, would lead to the demise of the Saudi Kingdom, Kuwait and the Arab Emirates.

Referring to the primacy of the US and Europe in the world, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner told the Herald Tribune that, “the magic is over”.

Newsweek’s Daniel Drezner states:

“America and Europe face political, economic and demographic challenges to their longstanding primacy. This is a delicate moment for a power transition, given the host of emerging global threats: global warming, nuclear proliferation, macroeconomic imbalances, terrorism, the need to reform global governance and so on. The question is can the United States and the European Union continue to exercise leadership on these issues? The answer, at best, is ‘not for long’.

The signals of decline in Western influence are getting hard to ignore. The Center for Transatlantic Relations reports a mixed bag. On the one hand, in 2006 the United States and European Union were responsible for less than 30 percent of the world exports. On the other hand, the two regions accounted for more than 75 percent of outward foreign direct investment.”

The European economy has now surpassed America’s. It is beyond question that a new era is about to break upon us.

The Scripture tells us that in the midst of a world in convulsion, one will arise out of Europe, and with signs and wonders and miracles appear to be the world’s savior. He will seem to have all of the answers.

The Coming World Church

The Coming World Church

John tells us in Revelation that the Antichrist will come to power in union with a great world church, counterfeit Christianity. John says, “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast,” Revelation 17:3. This is union of political power under Antichrist with a great world church.

The final preparations for that union are now under way. For nearly one hundred years we have witnessed the Ecumenical movement gradually bringing all of Christendom together.

In recent decades we have watched evangelicals move away from fundamentalism toward ecumenism and Rome.

Rick Warren has suggested that evangelicals be reconciled to the mainline protestant denominations. Warren has unveiled a new reformation for Christianity, a new reformation for the 21st century. He has a peace plan for the world. His goal is to mobilize one billion foot soldiers to promote peace. Rick Warren’s vision is to bring peace to the world through a world church.

Before you say, “what does it matter what Rick Warren thinks and does?” you must understand this. 400,000 pastors and religious leaders have attended his seminars. Nearly 100,000 pastors each week receive his emails, through which he molds their thinking and even gives them their weekly sermon outline. He calls it “church in a box”.

The Need for Reverance
Apr 1st, 2008


The Need for Reverence “God is greatly to be feared … and to be had in reverence.” Psalm 89:7

Many persons who have been raised in our churches no longer think in terms of reverence, which seems to indicate that they doubt God’s presence is there! Much of the blame must be placed on the growing acceptance of a worldly secularism that seems much more appealing than any real desire for the spiritual life that is pleasing to God.

We secularize God; we secularize the gospel of Christ and we secularize worship!

No great and spiritually minded men of God are going to come out of such churches, nor any great spiritual movement of believing prayer and revival. If God is to be honored and revered and truly worshiped, He may have to sweep away and start somewhere else!

Let us confess that there is a necessity for true worship among us. If God is who He says He is and if we are the believing people of God we claim to be, we must worship Him! In my own assessment, for men and women to lose the awareness of God in our midst is a loss too terrible ever to be appraised! A.W. Tozer

The Padded Cross
Apr 1st, 2008
Art Sadlier

Before you start your day, consider this thought:

"Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me." Matthew 16:24

Well, here I am, Lord. You said, "Take up your cross," and I'm here to do it. It's not easy, you know, this self-denial thing. I mean to go through with it though, yes sir. I'll bet you wish more people were willing to be disciples like me. I've counted the cost and surrendered my life, and ...well...

You mind if I look over the crosses? I'd kind of like a new one. I'm not fussy, you understand, but a disciple has to be relevant these days. I was wondering, are there any that are vinyl padded? I'm thinking of attracting others, see, and if I could show them a comfortable cross I'm sure I could win a lot more. We have to keep up with the times. Right? And I need something durable so I can treasure it always. Oh, and do you have one that's sort of flat so it will fit under my coat? We shouldn't be too obvious.

Funny, there doesn't seem to be much choice here. Just course, rough wood, that's liable to hurt. Don't you have something more distinctive, Lord? I can tell you right now, none of my friends are going to be impressed by this shoddy workmanship! They'll think I'm a nut or something! And my family will just be mortified!

What's that? It's either one of these or forget the whole thing?

But Lord, I want to be your disciple! I mean, just being with you...that's all that counts. Life has to have a balance too, but You don't understand, nobody lives that way today. Who's going to be attracted by this self-denial bit? I mean, I want to do what's right but let's not overdo it. If I appear too radical they'll have me off to the funny farm or something.

I mean, being a disciple is challenging and exciting and I want to do it, but I do have some rights, don't I? Now let's see -- no blood -- O.K.? I just can't stand the thought of that, Lord Lord? LORD? Jesus?
Now, where do you suppose He went? ---- Author Unknown

"Wherefore seeing we also, are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross..." Hebrews 12:1-2.
