Global Government: It's Closer Than You Think

We just did a post on the Pope saying USA should be ruled by a global government.  A few minute later we saw this headline from a Prophecy News Watch.

Global Government: It's Closer Than You Think

Over the past several decades, the world has moved closer and closer to global government. Free trade and globalization have taken the world by storm. 

National borders have been relaxed, if not completely erased. And many people see themselves as "citizens of the world" instead of citizens of their home country. Have no doubt. We've been on a slow march toward global government for decades.

In recent years we've seen a worldwide pushback against this trend. Brexit, the election of Donald Trump, and the rise of nationalism have led many to think free trade and globalization are on the way out. 

Does this signal the end for a future global government? No.

Despite the recent events, there's no stopping the march toward global government. How can I be so sure? Because the Bible says it's coming. And the Bible has a perfect track record when it comes to foretelling the future.

The Bible says the Antichrist will conquer other nations and create a global empire (Revelation 6:2-4). He will be so powerful, no one will be able to oppose him (Revelation 13:4). 

But in an age of nuclear weapons, how is this possible? Many say it's not. They say such a conquest would trigger a worldwide nuclear war. 

A war ending with total destruction of the planet. But keep in mind, conventional wisdom is often wrong. And this case is no different. Why do I say this? Because we won't be in the age of nuclear weapons forever. 

In fact, the age of nuclear weapons is about to end. And when it does, a global government will rule the world.

Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD)

In 1949, the Soviet Union became the world's second nuclear power. Since then, fear of a global nuclear war has kept humanity from destroying itself. The fear of total destruction, the idea no one can win a war between two nuclear powers, is known as Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). For 70 years, it's all that's kept us from World War III.

World leaders know - in an all-out nuclear war, no one wins. Because of this, we've never seen an all-out war between two nuclear powers. Many believe we never will. 

Sure, a regional power such as North Korea or Iran might one day cause a lot of destruction. But could they destroy the entire world? No. 

But a war between the United States, Russia, or China? That's a different story. For that reason alone, many believe we'll never see a war between those superpowers. 

It makes sense. And in the current era, it may prove true. But just because it's true now doesn't mean it will always be true. Why? Because in the coming era of advanced technology, MAD will be obsolete. 

Global Government

In a post-MAD world, many people see only two options:

1) An unstable arms race likely to end in global annihilation, or 
2) Global government

Most will choose global government. The first nation to develop advanced post-nuclear technologies will most likely take advantage of its powerful position.

It will likely use its power to conquer all other nations before they develop similar technologies. 

This nation could then establish a monopoly when it comes to these new technologies. And it will use its global monopoly to create a new and stable world order. 

Think about it. If no one is left who can wage war against this nation, the world will be at peace. Unfortunately, the world will also be under the hand of global government.

"While people are saying 'peace and safety' then destruction will come upon them suddenly."

It makes me wonder if people will sigh with relief  once the Antichrist steps forward and says, "I have an answer!  And the answer is that we all need to be under one government so we can get things done!  That being said, I will be the one to lead this government and lead the world!"

So the people left behind will actually believe they are buying into peace, safety and stability....but in reality they have just set themselves up for destruction.

Thank you Jesus that your bride, (all who have surrendered to Christ for salvation) will not be here to endure the wrath that will ensue probably 3 1/2 years after the Antichrist confirms a peace agreement.

Romans 5
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!
