Uniting the world

The United States and the European Union signed up to a new transatlantic economic partnership at a summit in Washington on May 7th. The pact is designed to boost trade and investment by harmonising regulatory standards, laying the basis for a US-EU single market. The two sides agreed to set up an ‘economic council’ to push ahead with regulatory convergence in nearly 40 areas, including intellectual property, financial services, business takeovers and the motor industry. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose country holds the EU’s rotating presidency, said that if the US and EU could set business norms today, they would ‘secure the markets of tomorrow’.

 

Although this agreement received little attention in the media there is evidence that it is part of a much bigger scheme to bring about a North American Union similar to the EU as another step along the plan for world government. This would involve replacing the dollar with a new currency known as the Amero for North America, linking this to the Euro and then bringing Asian powers into line with a world currency and a world government projected for around 2018.

 

The EU has long been used as a tool for globalisation by a gradual takeover of the role of national government. This has been done by harmonising all areas of life, economic, social, cultural and environmental, under an all encompassing monolithic authority over the entire region. Despite opposition from most of their voters, national leaders are even now seeking to implement by stealth areas of the EU Constitution which would undermine the ability of member states to opt out of EU laws, effectively ending national sovereignty. They are also pushing for Brussels to be given a full time unelected president who would serve a five year term and speak as the voice of Europe on the world stage.

 

France’s new president, Nicolas Sarkozy, has proposed the setting up of a ‘Mediterranean Union’ led by Turkey alongside the EU. This would be an alternative to Turkey’s bid for full EU membership, and would involve forming a loose grouping of 16 countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, with Turkey to be the backbone of the club. Under Mr Sarkozy’s plan, the group – in order to tie southern Europe with Israel and its Arab neighbours – would form an EU-like council with a rotating presidency and deal with topical issues such as energy, security, counter-terrorism, immigration and trade.

 

In addition to the EU, an agenda for a North American Union is now well on course according to the internal policy documents of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), an unelected organisation which serves the interests of globalisation in North America. The CFR’s document, ‘Building a North American Community‘, recommends that private bodies be formed to direct policy between Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

 

Very much like the EU, the progress towards a North American Union began with free trade agreements such as NAFTA and GATT. This was followed by the ‘Security and Prosperity Partnership’ treaty, which has been described as ‘an international framework for trilateral and bilateral cooperation in North America’. This agreement was carried out without being agreed by the US Congress. Journalist Jerome Corsi obtained documents relating to this treaty which show its activities towards creating a Pan American Union. The documents show that a wide range of US administrative law is being re-written by stealth under this program to ‘integrate’ and ‘harmonise’ with administrative law in Mexico and Canada. This follows the same pattern as has happened in the EU.

 

Corsi also reported that at a recent high-level conference in Banff, Canada, an assistant U.S. secretary of state, Thomas A. Shannon, chaired a panel that featured a presentation by Prof. Robert Pastor, author of a book promoting the development of a North American union as a regional government and the creation of a single currency along the lines of the Euro, known as the Amero to replace the dollar and the peso.

 

This push for economic and political union is a major step along the road to global governance. Talk has long been of a global currency by 2018 if plans go accordingly. In 1988 a famous cover of The Economist emphasised this, depicting a phoenix standing on top of burning paper money symbolising its rise out of their destruction. Next to it were the words ‘Get ready for a world currency.’

 

This article entitled ‘Get Ready for the Phoenix’ stated that, ‘Thirty years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency.’ The article went on to point out that sovereignty will be lost with the advent of the new currency, but that trends towards globalisation are already doing away with it anyway.

 

In 2004 Robert Mundell, the Nobel-prize winning economist often credited with paving the way to the European single currency, called for a global currency. In an interview with French paper Libération, Mundell said: ‘With the emergence of the euro and its instability against the dollar, Europe, the United States and the Asian powers should come together and create a new international monetary system. It appears we are now seeing the slow realisation of a global economic system with a single currency. The end game of this is of course a global government.

 

The Bible points to such a world government emerging in the last days of this age during the Great Tribulation period. A dynamic world leader known as the beast will appear at this time offering peace and safety at a time of great confusion and peril. In fact he will lead the world to the final holocaust and world war. In Revelation chapter 13 we read how he will gain world power: ‘And all the world marvelled and followed the beast. So they worshipped the dragon (i.e. the Devil) who gave authority to the beast, and they worshipped the beast saying, ‘Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war against him?’ And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty two months. … It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue and nation.’ Revelation 13.3-7. With the help of his accomplice, the false prophet, he will enforce an economic control system known as the mark of the beast without which no one will be able to buy or sell. Revelation 13.16-18.

 

His brief misrule will come to an end with the glorious coming to the earth of the Lord Jesus with all His saints. When this happens the ‘kingdoms of this world’ will become ‘the kingdom of our God and of His Messiah and He shall reign for ever and ever.’ Revelation 11.15. Now is the time to choose salvation through Jesus the true Messiah, who will come again in power and glory to judge the world righteously. World history is rapidly moving into its final phase. Don’t be left behind without Jesus as the trials of the last days come upon us.
