Is there really a new world order?


Speaking in the House of Commons on the debate about the Euro, Mr Blair

announced that Britain should prepare for joining the Euro. He also said,

'Sovereignty pooled could be sovereignty renewed' and declared 'This is a

world moving together.' (23/2/99) What this really means has already been

spelt out to us by Germany's Minister for Europe, Gunther Verheugen, when he

announced on 1st January that the launch of the Euro was the first step

towards a European super-state.


We should not really be surprised at what is happening. For most of this

century, there has been a movement for world government, which aims at

persuading nations to pool their sovereignty into a supra-national entity in

the interests of peace and economic progress. Very often the real power

behind what is happening is in the hands of shadowy internationalist

organisations like The Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign

Relations and the Bilderbergers, which exercise control on the way

governments function. Even back in 1844 Disraeli wrote, 'The world is

governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are

not behind the scenes.'


We publish below some quotations showing the drift towards world government

and draw some conclusions:


'We are at present working discreetly with all our might to wrest this

mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation

states of the world.' Professor Arnold Toynbee in a June 1931 speech before

the Institute for the Study of International Affairs in Copenhagen.


'The nation state is becoming less and less competent to perform its

international political tasks. These are some of the reasons pressing us to

lead vigorously toward the true building of a new world order. Sooner

perhaps than we realise there will evolve the bases for a federal structure

of the free world.' 1962 - The Future of Federalism' by Nelson Rockefeller.


'The Trilateral Commission is intended to be the vehicle for multinational

consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of

the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission

represents a skilful, co-coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate

the four centres of power - political, monetary, intellectual and

ecclesiastical. What the Trilateral Commission intends is to create a

world-wide economic power superior to the political governments of the

nation states involved. As managers and creators of the system they will

rule the future.' 1964 - 'With No Apologies' by US Senator Barry Goldwater.


'Western Europe is going to form a political union. The structure that has

to disappear, the lock that has to be burst is the nation.' 1970 - Edmund de



'My country's history, Mr President, tells us that it is possible to fashion

unity while cherishing diversity, that common action is possible despite the

variety of races, interests, and beliefs we see here in this chamber.

Progress and peace and justice are attainable. So we say to all peoples and

governments: Let us fashion together a new world order.' 1975 - Henry

Kissinger in an address to the General Assembly of the United Nations.


'Further global progress is now possible only through a quest for universal

consensus in the movement towards a new world order.' 1988 - Mikhail

Gorbachev, in an address to the UN.


'We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine

and other great publications, whose directors have attended our meetings and

respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have

been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been

subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world

is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world

government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world

bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practised in

past centuries.' David Rockefeller in an address to a meeting of the

Trilateral Commission in June 1991.


'All countries are basically social arrangements. No matter how permanent or

even sacred they may seem at one time, in fact they are all artificial and

temporary. Perhaps national sovereignty was not such a great idea after all.

But it has taken the events of our own wondrous and terrible century to

clinch the case for world government.' 1992 - Article in Time magazine by

Strobe Talbott, Director of the Council on Foreign Relations and former

roommate of Bill Clinton at Oxford University.


'This is an era of intense globalisation; it is not just economic, it is the

emergence of a new world society. For most countries there are no clear

enemies any more. Instead countries face risks - such as ecological risks -

that have to be faced together. I think the world urgently needs a better

framework of institutions and an extension of democracy above the level of

the nation state. So far the EU has not been that good. But I do see it as a

pioneering phenomenon; not a nation-state, not a federation, but something

different, an attempt to provide a political form for a globalised world.'

Anthony Giddens, Director of the London School of Economics, writing in

'Newsweek' 28/9/98.


'The megamergers of the past months, the global ramifications of the events

in East Asia, Russia, Brazil, the fact that national boundaries have often

become irrelevant, are just some signs that we live in a new reality where

globalisation is no longer a process but a condition. In a world which is

becoming borderless we have to create new global boundaries; we have to

create procedural, legal and institutional mechanisms to avoid the malignant

outbursts of revolution which is irreversible. This, like the Industrial

Revolution at the end of the last century holds the key for better

fulfilment by lifting millions of people out of poverty and providing them

with adequate health care and education. … Rolling back globalisation

reminds me of workers in Manchester in the last century who tried to stop

industrialisation by smashing machines.' Klaus Schwab, Founder of World

Economic Forum in Newsweek 1/2/99.


'The turmoil of the last 18 months reflects the first systematic crisis of

the global economy of the 21st century dominated by global capitalism. It

illustrates the urgency to put in place the structures and processes that

will allow us to manage this new global reality or globality in a

responsible way.' Conference of the World Economic Forum in Davos,

Switzerland as reported in 'Time' (1/2/99)


'The Euro may have only been in existence for less than a month and been

entirely untested as a concept, but its arrival has given birth to a new

mania for monetary unions. Asia is talking about an Asian single currency.

Argentina has floated the idea of 'dollarising' its economy as the first

step to a monetary union of the Americas. Economics professors from

Vancouver and Toronto are advocating a single North American currency as the

logical next step to the NAFTA free trade area. The idea of monetary union

between Australia and New Zealand has been mooted. Latest opinion polls

suggest that Sweden and Denmark would get a 'yes' vote in euro referendums.

In Britain opposition to the single currency has eased a little. Some go

even further advocating a world monetary union: a single, single currency.

However by far the most important objection is the politics of the nation

state. In the extreme case of a world currency a world government would be

necessary and that even on the eve of the millennium seems remote.' Article

in 'The Times' - 27/1/99.


Maybe not so remote. As these quotes show the consistent direction in the

affairs of the world throughout the 20th century has been towards creating a

mentality which will accept the subjugation of national identity into a

supranational unit. Education, the media, religious forces have been drafted

into the cause of promoting the agenda of the globalists. Those who resist

are condemned as hindering progress towards a better world order in which

people's living standards will be raised and conflicts will be resolved by

the benevolent elite who are supposedly working for the common good.


Little by little changes are brought into the lives of people and the way

they are governed which are irreversible and lead ultimately to the

surrender of sovereignty. One way in which this is happening in the UK is

through the promotion of regional governments, firstly in Scotland, Northern

Ireland and Wales, and then in the English regions. It might be thought that

this is promoting national identity, but ultimately the strategy is the

opposite. By weakening the central government, power is devolved downwards

to the regions and upwards to the central European Authority. The units

which emerge are too small and weak to stand on their own and therefore end

up dependent on the central authority. Gerry Adams and Alex Salmon may dream

about gaining independence from Westminster, but in the end they will find

themselves enslaved as never before by Brussels and Frankfurt.


Another factor is the break up of the old Party divisions and the emergence

of a consensus of the centre. As Tony Blair makes pacts with the Liberals

and Tory Euro-enthusiasts, the opposition becomes the Labour Left and the

Tory Right, which are incapable of uniting to resist the centre parties

pushing for Euro membership.


All of this actually ties in with prophecies in the Bible about the end of

this age. In Jeremiah 30.11 God speaks to Israel and says, 'Though I make a

full end of all nations where I have scattered you, yet I will not make a

complete end of you'. In Daniel 7.23 we read that 'The fourth beast shall be

a fourth kingdom on earth which shall be different from all other kingdoms

and shall devour the whole earth.' In Revelation 13 we read about the beast

who will be given authority over 'every tribe tongue and nation.'


There will also be an element of treachery in all this. In Isaiah 24.16 we

read that 'The treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously, indeed the

treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.' In Daniel 11.21 we read

of one who will 'come in peaceably and seize the kingdom by intrigue.' One

of the major features of the whole new world order programme is the element

of deception by which political leaders serve agendas quite different from

the ones which they claim to be serving.


Ultimately this will have to end in a dictatorship. Already it is clear to

many people that surrendering sovereignty to supra national units like the

European Union is a one way ticket to dictatorship. Unfortunately however,

as the various EU treaties make clear, once sovereignty has been

surrendered, the process is irreversible. Revelation 13 implies that

resistance to the final beast system will be impossible and lead to death or

imprisonment: 'Who is like the beast and who is able to make war with him? …

He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the

sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of

the saints.'


There is a religious dimension behind all this as well. The quest for world

unity recognises that religion has in the past been a powerful force for

national or tribal unity, and also for conflict between rival religious

groups. As nations are encouraged to surrender their sovereignty into a 'new

world order', religious leaders are to play their part, stressing elements

in common between various faiths and shunning divisive issues. The eastern

religious idea of discovering the 'god within' and various mystical, New Age

and occult practices common to various religions are promoted to provide a

bridge between faiths and encourage the idea that all roads lead to God.


The reality however is that when we look within ourselves we do not discover

'god' but our sinful human nature which we can only be liberated from by

repentance and faith in the true Messiah Jesus, who is the only way to God.

This idea is anathema to the forces behind the New World Order, who will

ultimately persecute all who hold it, according to the prophecies of the end

times. However the rule of the beast and the persecution of the saints will

only last a short time (Daniel 7.25). It will fall apart in the terrible

conflicts of the last days of this age, which will lead to the final battle

and the second coming of the Messiah Jesus (Revelation 19).


'Then the kingdom and dominion and the greatness of the kingdoms under the

whole heaven shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His

dominion is an everlasting dominion and all dominions shall serve and obey

him.' Daniel 7.27
