Welcome back, fellow sojourners! We’re on a journey together to discover Why Israel Matters. Though we have discussed specific reasons Israel matters, we’ve taken a side road this week to talk about what happens after the rapture occurs and God resumes His plan for His people. We know the time period as the tribulation and today we’ll focus on the rise of the Antichrist, who will establish One World Government for a short time. So, let’s get started!
Read the account of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and Daniel’s interpretation in Daniel 2. We discover what Nebuchadnezzar’s dream means, and here is a diagram that illustrates it:
A full discussion regarding this diagram is found here, but for today’s purposes, let’s reduce it to this: one kingdom after another defeated a previous one, though neither the restored kingdom of Rome nor the crushing rock have been prophetically fulfilled yet.
The Antichrist will arise out of the restored Roman Empire, which is the next to “rule,” according to Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. Then a stone will crush him, and we know that stone to be Jesus. (Matthew 21:42, Psalm 118:22, 1 Peter 2:6-8)
But take note. Each kingdom conquered and arose in Babylon UNTIL Rome expanded all the way to what we know today as Europe. Rome was not defeated in Babylon (as the previous kingdoms were), but in Europe. “Mystery Babylon,” then, took up residence in Europe, and we see the signs of that today!
The European Union flag is adorned with a crown of stars, given to the “queen of heaven.” The prophet Jeremiah warned of this type of idol worship in Jeremiah 44:15-19. To Catholics, the queen of heaven is Mary.
The European Union Parliament building Strasbourg France was intentionally built to replicate the tower of Babel, a pagan attempt to “reach into the sky” to become like God.
In front of the EU Council Building in Brussels stands a statue of a woman riding a beast! The exact description of the harlot in Revelation 17.
So, I wonder…were all these things done unknowingly or purposefully? I’m not sure about the flag, but the buildings in Strasbourg and the statute Brussels were intentionally designed with Babel and the woman on a beast in mind! Purposeful rebellion!
There is an educated group behind this push for One World Order. Albert Einstein once said:
“The minority, the ruling class, has the schools and press, usually the church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make it’s tool of them.”
Indeed, a group of very wealthy bankers and industrialists formulated a plan long ago to financially control Europe, and then the world. Among them are the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, George Soros, Bill Gates and many other financially wealthy and socially powerful figures. You will get a taste for their ambitions from these quotes:
Mayer Amschel Rothschild, during early formulation of the plan:
“Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.”
David Rockefeller, June 1991 at Bilderberg Meeting:
“It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those [early] years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The super national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
David Rockefeller, September 1994 at the US Business Conference:
“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”
David Rockefeller, 2002 autobiography, Memoirs, page 405:
“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with other around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
Wow! From subtle, behind closed doors, out of the reach of the press, to blatantly “out there” with their agenda. Here are some of the effects we see today:
- Bill Gates – depopulation agenda
- George Soros – financing illegal immigration to Europe, to wipe out borders and establish a globalist agenda
- Major university presidents – advancing liberal agendas on campus
The One World Order agenda is everywhere! We’re seeing the stage being set for tribulational days when the false prophet and Antichrist will arise!
Now…let me end with an interesting thought. Why do the rich and famous hate President Trump? Could it be because he was commonly on their guest lists to attend major functions where the globalist agenda was being perpetuated? After all, he was “one of them” financially speaking. Yet, though it seems he is not in agreement with their agenda, he knows their strategy and their ploys…because he himself was sought after to be “in that crowd.”
I can’t say for sure that is true, but it certainly makes me wonder as I witness the vehement opposition to everything his administration puts forth. May God grant him tremendous wisdom, and may the President seek to follow after sound, Godly counsel.
Tomorrow we will discuss what else we see in the world that aligns with “Mystery Babylon.” You may be surprised (or even shocked) by some of it!
Hey, meanwhile…check back later today. We’ll talk about what the US peace plan might entail…and there is an interesting tie to this lesson! Check it out!
