The end of globalization?

The following article asks an interesting question. (Scroll down for the prophecy connection.)

Will ‘Brexit’ mark the end of the age of globalization?

The Times Enterprise

June 26, 2016

WASHINGTON (TNS) — For decades, financial and political leaders have preached the inevitability of globalization, promising nations that by sacrificing some of their sovereignty and dropping national barriers they could reap far greater rewards through economic integration and cooperation. And that turned out to be largely true.

But Britain’s surprise vote to leave the European Union signals a new era for the post-World War II globalization drive, exposing deep populist anger and leaving open the question of how best to rein in an increasingly connected and interdependent world economy….

Now Britain and other Western democracies are likely to face growing pressure to put the brakes on open trade and immigration policies that have been hallmarks of world growth.

“The age of globalization has certainly ended,” said Fredrik Erixon, director of the European Center for International Political Economy, an independent think tank in Brussels….

Few are predicting a scenario in which major borders are closed and protectionism rules the day. But the sentiments underlying the British public’s rebellion are broadly shared by many others in the EU as well as the United States.

Policymakers and investors are particularly worried that Britain’s move will be a catalyst for a re-energized effort by Scots — who overwhelmingly favored remaining in the EU — to break away from Britain. It may also encourage other secession movements in the EU, which could fundamentally alter the political and economic structure that has been in place for decades.

With one fell swoop, the world order has been turned upside down overnight, and where the chaos stops no one knows,” said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist for Mitsubishi UFG Financial Group.

The backlash stems from a growing realization that the biggest winners of globalization have been international corporations, wealthy families, skilled and educated workers and those with easy access to capital. Older, working-class families in many Western nations have instead struggled with stagnant wages, job losses and staggering debt. Income inequality has grown worse in many of the same countries that have embraced globalization….

PROPHECY CONNECTIONS:

This change of events is especially interesting in light of prophecy found in Daniel 2 and 7.

In Daniel 2, Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar had a disturbing dream. The Lord God provided the interpretation through His servant Daniel. It was Daniel who experienced a dream (in Daniel 7), and when compared to the king’s dream, we can find connections in the endings of both.

The second chapter of Daniel concerns a dream about a huge statue, which represents the first four “kingdoms” that would appear on earth after the fall of Babylon. (I’ve written about this elsewhere, so won’t go into detail here.) Here is what was said about the FOURTH KINGDOM:

“Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. 41 Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. 42 As THE TOES were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. 43 And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.

44 IN THE TIME OF THOSE [TEN] KINGS, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.”

Did you catch that? “In the time of those kings” — talking about the toes on the statue — God will set up His kingdom on earth! So at some point on the world history timeline, TEN KINGS will rule the world!

Now, let’s look at the final part of Daniel’s dream …

“After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had TEN HORNS.

“While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was ANOTHER HORN, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully.

 “Then I wanted to know the meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws—the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. 20 I also wanted to know about the ten horns on its head and about the other horn that came up, before which three of them fell—the horn that looked more imposing than the others and that had eyes and a mouth that spoke boastfully. 21 As I watched, this horn was waging war against the holy people and defeating them, 22 until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the holy people of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom.

23 “He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. 24 The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. 25 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. [3 1/2 years]

26 “‘But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. 27 Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of all the kingdoms under heaven will be handed over to the holy people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him.” (Daniel 7:7-8, 19-27, NIV)

See the connection? Daniel 2 talks about TEN TOES, which represent TEN KINGS who will appear just before God’s kingdom is established on earth. Daniel 7 says that TEN HORNS, symbolizing TEN KINGS, will appear on earth just before the sovereignty of ALL KINGDOMS will be handed over to “the people of the Most High.”

 king will arise — “a little one” who is “different.” “He will subdue three of the ten kings in authority, and he will oppress God’s holy people for 3 1/2 years!

Could this be what’s happening in the world right now? Could the Lord God be preparing for the entrance of that “little horn” on the head of the fourth beast — the final kingdom that will appear on earth before everything will be “handed over to the holy people of the Most High?

Keep watching and remembering that GOD IS IN CONTROL!

Globalists targeting the $100 bill. Why?

WND EXCLUSIVE

C-NOTE IN CROSS-HAIRS FOR GLOBALISTS

New York Times editorial board: ‘$100 bill must go’

Published: February 26, 2016

 

cash

NEW YORK – In the afterglow of the recent World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers is waging a war to eliminate America’s $100 bill – as part of the globalist strategy to prepare the United States for negative interest rates that will, eventually, result in punishment for savers.

“I remember that when the euro was being designed in the late 1990s, I argued with my European G7 colleagues that skirmishing over seiniorage by issuing a 500 euro note was highly irresponsible and mostly would be a boon to corruption and crime,” Summers wrote in a op-ed piece published in the Washington Post on Feb. 16.

It was there he argued the 500 euro note and the $100 bill should be discontinued and withdrawn from circulation. The fight he cited included concerns over the profit made by a government by issuing currency, especially the difference between the face value of coins or currency and their production costs.

In support of his argument, Summers cited a study published by the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government at Harvard’s Kennedy School that argued eliminating high denomination, high value currency notes from circulation, including the €500 note, the $100 bill, the Swiss Frank CHF1,000 note, and the £50 note, would make transacting business more difficult for criminals….

 

Punishing savers

“Punishing savers is exactly what central bankers – who are really central economic planners – would like to do. They think stinging savers with negative interest rates will encourage them to spend now. It’s effectively a tax on saving money,” Giambruno wrote.

“Central planners just want you to spend money. Even if you have to go into debt to do it,” he continued. “Consumption based on fear of negative interest rates is somehow supposed to ‘stimulate’ the economy.”

“Their solution to this ‘problem’ is to push the world closer to a cashless society. That cuts off your main escape route from punishment interest,” he notes….

Unprecedented secret police plan …

WND EXCLUSIVE

‘SECRET POLICE’ PLAN CALLED ‘UNPRECEDENTED’

‘Officers could be effectively immunized from wrongdoing and able to act with impunity’

February 24, 2016

 

nj_police_shooting

A prominent civil-rights organization is protesting a Virginia state bill that would create a “secret police” force allowing officers to be “effectively immunized from wrongdoing and able to act with impunity.”

The Rutherford Institute dispatched a letter Wednesday to James LeMunyon, chairman of the House of Delegates’ General Laws subcommittee.

The proposal, Senate Bill 552, would classify the names of all police officers as “personnel records,” making them exempt from disclosure.

“American citizens have a right to know when government agencies and government officials have engaged in wrongdoing,” said constitutional attorney John Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute and author of “Battlefield America: The War on the American People.”

Trust the government? Maybe you shouldn’t. Read the details in “Lies the Government Told You,” by Judge Andrew Napolitano.

“Whether those individuals occupy a public office or are employed by a law-enforcement agency is immaterial. If a government employee has been charged with misconduct, it is the right of the taxpayer to know both the name of the individual and the charge against them.”

He noted that all across America, people are demanding more transparency, not less.

“What we cannot afford to have happen in Virginia is the kind of backlash against law enforcement misconduct and subsequent cover-ups that resulted in community-wide protests and acts of civil disobedience in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore,” the letter said.

“By ensuring that the identities of police officers could be kept completely secret, SB 552 would ostensibly result in the creation of secret police forces throughout the Commonwealth. If police are allowed to operate anonymously without the moderating influence that comes from public oversight of their activities, officers could be effectively immunized from wrongdoing and able to act with impunity and in disregard of the civil rights of citizens.”

Lawsuits over violations would be impossible, the letter said, since no defendant could be named.

The law would kill “a crucial deterrent to police misconduct,” the Rutherford Institute said.

The institute noted that a “law enforcement officer” is defined in Virginia as any full-time or part-time employee of a police department, sheriff’s office and other agencies.

Efforts to circumvent greater government transparency which, in the process, potentially shields government wrongdoing will only weaken that which makes our system of government strong: a system of checks and balances, public accountability, and government agencies and employees that are fully cognizant of the fact that they serve the taxpayers,” the letter said….

Prophesied global government, economy and religion?

I’ve been sensing a burden to help my readers understand more about the prophecies that Daniel wrote about (Daniel 2 and 7) and that John received from the risen Jesus and wrote about in Revelation 13 concerning the final world government that will be set into place before Jesus returns for His elect (Matthew 24:15-31).

Here is a current news article that will lend understanding to WHY it is important to know about these specific prophecies and how they can be historically verified … all except those that have yet to be fulfilled. (I’ve highlighted and underlined what stands out to me.)

Moving Toward A One World Government, A One World Economy And A One World Religion

October 19, 2015   

Economic Collapse Blog / Michael Snyder

The global elite have never been closer to their goal of a united world. Thanks to a series of interlocking treaties and international agreements, the governance of this planet is increasingly becoming globalized and centralized, but most people don’t seem alarmed by this at all.

In the past 30 days, we have seen some of the biggest steps toward a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion that we have ever witnessed, but these events have sparked very little public discussion or debate. So please share this article with as many people as you can. We need to wake people up about this before it is too late.

From September 25th to September 27th, the United Nations launched a “new universal agenda” for humanity. Those are not my words, they actually come directly out of the core document for this new agenda. The Pope traveled to New York City to give the address that kicked off this conference, thus giving his considerable endorsement to this new plan. Virtually every nation on the entire planet willingly signed up for the 17 goals that are included in this plan, but this stunning turn of events made very few international headlines.

The United Nations is promising that if we all work together that we can turn our planet into some kind of “utopia”, but the truth is that all of this talk about “unity” masks a very insidious agenda. The following comes from a recent piece by Paul McGuire, the author of a groundbreaking new book entitled “The Babylon Code”…

The UN is not asking permission, but issuing a command that the entire planet will commit to 17 sustainable development goals and 169 sustainable development targets designed to radically transform our world by 2030.  The UN 2030 plan promoted by the Pope will advance Agenda 21 on steroids.

Through a controlled media the mass populations will be told that this is all about saving the environment and “ending poverty.” But that is not the true agenda of Agenda 21. The true agenda of Agenda 21 is to establish a global government, global economic system, and global religion. When UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon spoke of “a dream of a world of peace and dignity for all” this is no different than when the Communists promised the people a “workers paradise.”

For the general population, “the 2030 Agenda” has been rebranded as “the global goals”. On September 26th, some of the biggest names in the music world (including Beyonce) promoted these new “global goals” at the “Global Citizen Festival” that was held in Central Park. And you can watch a YouTube video where some of the most famous names on the entire planet urge all of us to get behind these new “global goals” right here.

None of this is by accident. We are being trained to think of ourselves as “global citizens” that belong to a “global community”. Decades ago, most Americans would have been up in arms over something like this. But now most people just seem to accept these changes passively. Very powerful secret societies and international organizations have been moving us in this direction for a very long time, and most Americans simply have no idea what is happening. Here is more from Paul McGuire

The United Nations is a de facto global government and does not rule by the “consent of the governed.” The United Nations is a global government to which American politicians of both parties have surrendered our Constitutional rights. If you look at the Republican Presidential debates you see the vast majority of those running are “bought men and women.” They are there to do the bidding of their true masters, the international banking families and their interlocking secret societies. If a candidate has a different set of beliefs than the “Orwellian group think” which constitutes domestic and foreign policy, he is allowed to go only so far.

Who are these powerful elite groups and the secret societies that run them? As we extensively document in our new book, The Babylon Code, co-authored by this author and Troy Anderson, a Pulitzer Prize-nominated investigative journalist, there exists a very real network of semi-secretive and secret groups. Groups like The Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission, Royal Institute of International Affairs, United Nations, Club of Rome, The Bilderberg Group, and others control presidents, prime ministers, media networks, politicians, CEO’s, and entire nations. You will almost never hear any substantive analysis by the media, which is controlled by these groups nor of attempts at holding them accountable by governments around the world.

Another way that our planet is being “united” is through the use of international trade agreements.

The ultimate goal is for the entire world to become a “single market” with uniform laws, rules and regulations. But as we merge our economy with the rest of the globe, the United States has been losing tens of thousands of businesses and millions of jobs as the monolithic corporations that now dominate our economy shift production to areas where labor is much cheaper. This is absolutely destroying the middle class, but very few people seem to care.

Negotiations for one of the biggest international trade treaties that the world has ever seen recently concluded. The Trans-Pacific Partnership, also known as “Obamatrade”, would represent a giant step toward a truly unified global economy. The following is an excerpt from one of my previous articles…

We have just witnessed one of the most significant steps toward a one world economic system that we have ever seen. Negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership have been completed, and if approved it will create the largest trading bloc on the planet. But this is not just a trade agreement.

In this treaty, Barack Obama has thrown in all sorts of things that he never would have been able to get through Congress otherwise. And once this treaty is approved, it will be exceedingly difficult to ever make changes to it. So essentially what is happening is that the Obama agenda is being permanently locked in for 40 percent of the global economy.

The United States, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam all intend to sign on to this insidious plan. Collectively, these nations have a total population of about 800 million people and a combined GDP of approximately 28 trillion dollars.

And do you want to know who pushed really hard to give Obama fast track negotiating authority so that these negotiations could be brought to a successful conclusion?

It was the traitorous Republican leadership in Congress. They did everything that they could to pave the way for Obamatrade.

We are also seeing some stunning moves in the direction of a one world religion.

In recent years, you may have noticed that it has become very trendy to say that all religions are just different paths to the same God. In fact, many prominent religious leaders are now openly proclaiming that the two biggest faiths on the entire planet, Christianity and Islam, worship the exact same deity.

For example, just consider what the Pope is saying publicly on this matter. The following is an extended excerpt from one of my recent articles on End of the American Dream…

What Pope Francis had to say at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan has received very little coverage by the mainstream media, but it was exceedingly significant. The following is how he began his address…

I would like to express two sentiments for my Muslim brothers and sisters: Firstly, my greetings as they celebrate the feast of sacrifice. I would have wished my greeting to be warmer. My sentiments of closeness, my sentiments of closeness in the face of tragedy. The tragedy that they suffered in Mecca.

In this moment, I give assurances of my prayers. I unite myself with you all. A prayer to almighty god, all merciful.

He did not choose those words by accident. In Islam, Allah is known as “the all-merciful one”. If you doubt this, just do a Google search.

And this is not the first time Pope Francis has used such language. For instance, the following comes from remarks that he made during his very first ecumenical meeting as Pope

I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you. I really appreciate your presence: in it I see a tangible sign of the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of humanity.

The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – I wish to repeat this: promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious dialogue performs.

Pope Francis clearly believes that Christians and Muslims worship the exact same God. And so that helps to explain why he authorized “Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran” at the Vatican for the first time ever back in 2014.

*****

What is happening is undeniable.

We are steamrolling toward a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion.

Of course we will not get there overnight. It is going to take some time, and there are going to be quite a few bumps along the way. In fact, I believe that our planet will experience an extreme amount of chaos before we actually get there.

But every major crisis will be used as an excuse to advance this agenda. Virtually every solution that the elite offer us will involve more globalization and more centralization. We will be told that all of our problems will be solved if humanity will just come together in unity.

For some, the goal of a “united planet” where we are all working together to eradicate things like poverty, war and disease makes all the sense in the world.

For others, a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion would simply mean setting the stage for “one world tyranny”.

REVELATION 13 (New International Version and BibleGateway.com) …

The dragon [SATAN] stood on the shore of the sea. And I [John] saw a beast coming out of the sea. It [or he] had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it [him]?”

The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months [3 1/2 years according to the Hebrew calendar]. It [he] opened its [his] mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. It [he] was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it [he] was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation [global government]. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast [global religion] —all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world [Jesus].

Whoever has ears, let them hear.

10 “If anyone is to go into captivity,
    into captivity they will go.
If anyone is to be killed with the sword,
    with the sword they will be killed.”

This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.

11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth [“the false prophet”]. It [or He] had two horns like a lamb, but it [he] spoke like a dragon. It [he]exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast [forced global religion], whose fatal wound had been healed. And it [he] performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. Because of the signs it [he] was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it [he] deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It [he] ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed [uniting forced global government and religion]. It [he] also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark [forced global economy], which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.

Become familiar with these prophecies and the ones I will soon be sharing from the Book of Daniel, so that you can discern what is “of the Lord” and “of the dragon”

Coming next: Dreams, visions and such (Part 1: The Golden Head)

Something wicked this way comes …

I recently came across an article published on Prophecy News Watch titled, “Former U.S. President Suggests the Idea of Alien Invasion Bringing World Unity.” When I read the article and discovered that the author was referring to Bill Clinton, I had an unsettling “deja vu moment” that took me back to January 1997 and a video lecture that I acquired at that time.  It was presented by the late J.R. Church (Prophecy In The News) and was titled “Tickling the Tail of the Dragon.” I still have that video, and I plan to watch it again soon.

J.R. Church began his lecture with this opening statement:

“What I am about to tell you is not motivated by political agenda. I approach this subject as a theologian, and this is not the final word on the subject. I encourage you to keep this in mind as you hear what I have to say. I only discuss this subject for your consideration. I’m not trying to be dogmatic with what I am going to be telling you today. I simply want you to hear and see and then … forget it — lest you tickle the tail of the dragon.”

For now, I’m not going to write about the miraculous way in which I came to know about this man and his ministry. I will say, however, that as I watched history unfold over the following three years as the crimes and misdemeanors of William Jefferson Clinton took center stage in the news, I could not do what J.R. Church had staunchly recommended. I could not forget about the very controversial research that he had shared … with me.

Exploring what had been written about Bill and Hillary Clinton became something of an obsession of mine for many years. I collected books and articles from magazines and newspapers. And I became convinced that what J.R. Church had surmised about the connection between Bill Clinton and Bible prophecy was accurate and true.

Funny thing, though. Time has a way of making events that seemed very important tend to fade away…. B.C.  left the D.C. scene and went on to become involved in other, less conspicuous, endeavors — like establishing, in New York City, the “Clinton Global Initiative” in 2005, to keep his name subtly in the news in positive ways while attempting to cleanse his soiled legacy.

Clinton has been relatively quiet for the past 13 years. 

So what motivated him to appear on a late night TV show and make a seemingly outlandish statement about an alien invasion uniting the world?

Here is the article for your consideration. (Highlighted wording is what stands out to me.) …

 

Former U.S. President Suggests The Idea Of Alien Invasion Bringing World Unity

April 25, 2014 | Tom Olago

“An alien invasion of planet earth would not be surprising, and could unite this increasingly divided world of ours, because the differences among people of Earth would seem small in comparison. An invasion by extraterrestrials might be the best way to unite the fractious countries of our war-wracked planet, if we feel threatened by a space invader. That’s the whole theory of ‘Independence Day’ (the hit 1996 sci-fi disaster movie)…everybody gets together and makes nice”. These recent comments came from no less than a former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.

Back in 1987, President Ronald Reagan reportedly made a similar statement, telling the United Nations General Assembly: “I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside of this world.”

Michael Snyder of the truthwins.com questions if Clinton knows something that the rest of us don’t, and why he is sharing this now. Clinton’s comments were made against a backdrop of “an endless barrage of books, movies, television shows and video games that portray human contact with extraterrestrials”, over recent years, suggesting the possibility that mankind may be getting set up for a great deception of historic proportions.

It would seem that there is a concerted effort being made behind the scenes, to prepare the global populace to not only imagine the possibility of an alien invasion, but to actually expect one. Vatican astronomers have recently been discussing the possibility of contact with “brother extraterrestrial“, and one has even suggested that aliens could “be the Saviors of humankind”.

The truthwins.com  reports that according to a survey conducted by National Geographic, 77 percent of all Americans already believe “there are signs that aliens have visited Earth” (apparently based on the increase in UFO sightings over recent years, as well as the heightened interest in aliens and supernatural beings and events in general). In comparison, only 68 percent of all Americans believe that Jesus is God or the Son of God.

So what exactly should be made of these comments and views? It may be true that humans have a tendency to unite against common threats, but why should there be so much focus on aliens when it seems that humans have more to be afraid of from each other, rather than extraterrestrial beings whose presence and threat is still yet to be felt comparatively on earth, to the knowledge and understanding of most?

Could it be that Satan and his demons, well aware about the Biblical prophecies of the last days, want to create an explanation for end-time prophecies yet to occur, such as the rapture of the church?

I Thessalonians 4:16-17 says:  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

When this event happens, what better explanation could be offered to an unbelieving world than that an ‘alien abduction’ has taken place? And that the ‘undesirable elements’ of this world have been removed – perhaps to pave the way for a ‘brave new world’ or a ‘new world order’?

The Bible also teaches that in the last days, unclean spirits will be released to do battle against God and His chosen people, Israel:

Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty… And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon. (Revelation 16:12-14, 16)

When Satan through the AntiChrist, brings out the armies of the world to fight against Jesus Christ, how likely is it that he will say: “Let’s go out and fight against Jesus Christ, Who is God?” Not a chance. More likely he will tell the world: “Your planet is in danger of attack from hostile aliens, and you had better come out and fight to save yourselves and your planet”. Such was the theme of the movie ‘Independence Day’ that Bill Clinton recently made reference to.

The following explanation by mt.net, hits the nail on the head regarding the alien consciousness trends that we are currently seeing: “Currently, the group of beings referred to as “aliens” are portraying themselves as disparate elements of the paranormal. Aliens, walk-ins, ascended masters, the hidden hierarchy, spirit guides, channeled beings and natural forces like Gaia, are all imparting a similar message of impending disaster and a need for all of humanity to unite. 

The “aliens” claim to be preparing the earth for a massive evolutionary shift of consciousness, a paradigm shift, while also continuing the education that they maintain is crucial if the human race is to be spared destruction. The nonhuman intelligences are feigning good intentions by warning humans of their potential fate, and the offer to assist humans is all but altruistic in that it is designed to unite mankind under a global authority, with their candidate on the Throne of the World…Non-human intelligences pretending to be “aliens” claim to be the ancient progenitors of the human race. This is the End Time Delusion, which would deceive even the elect, and will lead to the setting up of antichrist on the world throne”.

Is this the real context, or backdrop against which Presidents have been highlighting the value of unity in the face of hostile extraterrestrial or alien threats? Not if you have a Biblical perspective on prophetic end-time events. The Bible clearly warns of an end-time deception that will target all those who refuse the love of the truth in these last days:

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,  and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness (2nd Thessalonians 2: 7-12).

People have always wondered what would happen if “aliens” did invade the planet. Would they come in peace, or to wage war? It certainly depends on which “aliens” you are thinking about. Satan and his demons only come to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10) which they have been doing pretty effectively over the past 6,000 years at least, here on earth. However, Jesus Christ, Who is God, will come with His heavenly armies to save Israel, defeat Satan and his cohorts and usher in a peaceful millennial age where Satan will be bound for a thousand years(Revelation 20:1-3).

Sadly, those deceived into believing that they are repelling “hostile aliens” in that event, will pay for their sinful and presumptuous attitudes by missing out on an eternity with their Creator, who loved them enough to shed His own blood to save them from their sins so that they could spend eternity with Him (John 3:16, Revelation 1:5,6).

One thing I would add to this author’s commentary: Satan’s mission has always been to steal, kill and destroy, but we must remember that he is also capable of portraying himself as an angel of light to confuse and bewilder those who allow themselves to be deceived.

At the end of his message, J.R. Church closes with this prayer: “Dear Lord, we do not want to deliver such a message as this, but we must be faithful to our calling, for some day we hope to hear you say, ‘Well done.'”  To that I say, amen!
