Barack Obama & the New World Order -
A historical change is coming!

The purpose for this pamphlet is not to attack the US President as a person. We want to investigate the development at thepolitical, economic, military and religious level, going in the direction of a New World Order.The question is: Which powers are behind, and what impact will the New World Order have in the near future?
In his State of the Union address on February 18, 1991, former US president George Bush Sr., as the Gulf War started, said:
“It is a big idea—a New World Order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind: peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law.”
Former US president George Bush Jr. also worked to advance this new world order, but leaders around the world were of the opinion that, as U.S. leader, he operated too much alone as a global superpower. In contrast, Barack Obama has tried, through diplomacy, to draw world leaders to himself in forming an international alliance. We see this international alliance developing into a New Order in the world. In this New World Order, international laws will have pre-eminence over national laws. World rulers have established a centralised system where a handful of rulers make laws for the world’s population. If the world’s population doesn’t comply and accept these laws, new laws are then put in place in order to put them in check. This international, centralised, governing model gives world rulers great power. Barack Obama is therefore a notable spokesperson for such a Global Order. At the G-20 summit on April 2, 2009, President Obama hailed the meeting as “a turning point in our pursuit of global economic recovery.” (The Independent, April 2, 2009). More quotations to come!
Ordo ab Chao
With goal in mind, world leaders work intensely for a new Order in the world. In the old order, independent nations should steer their own national laws made within their own respective legislative bodies. In the new world order, international law takes pre-eminence over national law, where all become subordinate. In order to establish such a system, the motto of ORDO AB CHAO, which means ORDER OUT OF CHAOS, has been propositioned over the centuries. Chaos must be created first. Out of this chaos, a new world order will emerge through international legislation. It is these laws that govern the nations. The keyword for their strategy is PEACE. It sounds really nice, but peace is not obtained by far-reaching international legislation. These international laws, made by world leaders, will grow in number as chaos continues to arise. We saw this clearly when chaos arose in connection with the two big towers that were destroyed in a few seconds in USA in 2001. Just a few hours after these two towers were destroyed, new laws were implemented that affected the whole world. These laws gave the globalists the right to monitor telephone conversations, faxes, emails, SMS’s, etc., and they could even break into homes and arrest terror suspects without warrants (Patriot Act I & II). More will come. We can expect more terror attacks, violent crime, natural disasters, wars, etc., which will rapidly contribute to the implementation of more international laws. The common people will be like slaves under the power elite’s laws.
We do not know people’s motives and we should not judge people’s motives either. Perhaps many world leaders, including Barack Obama, have good motives in doing what they do? We don’t ignore the fact that many of the world’s leaders promote the New World Order because they believe, that through it, there can be PEACE on earth. But peace is not brought about by massive legislation. This only makes people into slaves under diverse and specific legislation. This legislation binds people by hand and foot. If the people aren’t loyal toward the power elite’s laws, they will be seen as rebels and will be punished. According to their recipe, peace can only be obtained as the nations of the world follow their plan. If their orders are not followed, then there will be war and difficulties until each country acknowledges their supremacy.
Barack Obama is one of the global elitists’ spokespersons for peace while using ‘change’ as his keyword and in the formation of a New World Order. Barack Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo on December 10, 2009 as a result of his diplomatic, peace-seeking endeavours.
Peace – small talk or reality?
There is basically nobody today, who respects and fights for retaining a free, sovereign nation, who would receive a peace prize. It is only those who promote global solutions who are seen as worthy and Barack Obama is one of them. Until now, Obama has not proved to the world that he deserved being singled out as the world’s man of peace. On YouTube, DVDs and other media, we see with consternation the hundreds of prison camps around the U.S. that are ready to be used. These camps are fully secured, but there no prisoners there. Does this remind us of peace? Why doesn’t Obama get rid of these prison camps? What are they waiting for? Why have they built these? It is very clear that they are preparing for war and in this war, those who are disloyal to the globalists’ plans will end up in one of these prison camps.
War for peace?
Obama has plans to reduce atomic weapons in the world, but plans are not enough. He continues the war in Afghanistan, has a large military presence in Iraq and in other parts of the world and will be like a ‘Big Brother’ in the world. If all of his peace-plans would end in success, the apparent result would be that independent nations would not be allowed to govern themselves. All will be taught to subordinate themselves under the New World Order. When Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo on December 10, 2009, he said:
“War is sometimes necessary… if we want a lasting peace, then the words of the international community must mean something. Those regimes that break the rules must be held accountable. Sanctions must exact a real price. Intransigence must be met with increased pressure — and such pressure exists only when the world stands together as one.” (Text from Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize speech. The Associated Press (AP) – Dec 10, 2009).
The global leaders mean that they will bring about peace in the world if all nations are loyal to the international legislation – which they themselves stand behind. If not - if the nations are insubordinate - then there will be war, pressure and difficulties until they acknowledge those at the top. Is this the way to bring about peace?
Barack Obama will also now try to create PEACE in the MIDDLE EAST. The goal is to bring Jews and Israel under the global strategy and we do not ignore the possibility of him reaching this goal through diplomacy and talented agents.
Abraham Lincoln & Barack Obama
There are those who compare Obama with Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer before he became president. In a court case against the Catholic Church he helped Charles Chiniquy, who was a Catholic priest for 50 years. As Chiniquy began to study the Bible for himself, he realized quite clearly that the Catholic Church’s traditions were not in line with the Bible’s teachings. He decided to break off and leave the church, which resulted in a court case with the Catholic Church. As his lawyer, Abraham Lincoln defended Chiniquy and both ended up winning the court case. After the case, Abraham Lincoln was very happy on behalf of Chiniquy. Chiniquy was serious and Lincoln asked him why he was not glad when he had, indeed, won the court case against the Catholic Church. Chiniquy replied: “I know all of the Jesuits who were in the court room and from now on, I am afraid for your life!” (Fifty Years in the Church of Rome by Charles Chiniquy). We know how it ended up with Abraham Lincoln. He was murdered.
The Civil War in the U.S. started while Abraham Lincoln was president. In 1865, Abraham Lincoln wrote:
“This war would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits. We owe it to Popery that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons.” (Fifty Years in the Church of Rome by Charles Chiniquy (Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker Book House: 1968: originally published in 1886) p. 498. (Can also be found in the book Vatican Assassins, by Eric Jon Phelps, p. 302).
Abraham Lincoln knew that the Jesuits and the Catholic Church were very much involved in the Civil War. Lincoln even believed that it was the Jesuits and Catholic Church who stood behind the American Revolution. He took a decided stand against this movement and would not be a supporter.
In light of this, it is interesting to see that the Jesuits and the Catholic Church gained foothold in the USA. They have their representatives in the industry sector, banking system, law offices, consulting services, governmental departments, Congress and in Obama’s closest circles. Obama, as U.S. leader, already has a close tie to the Pope in Rome and the Bible says that it would be just like this in the end time (Rev. 13:12). More on this at www.endtime.net
Over the years, the Jesuits have considered a quality education as something important; in this way they can obtain important positions within society. This is also why they have built universities in the USA, where up and coming world leaders are educated and trained to carry on the plans for a New World Order. Their representatives have now obtained positions within the world’s most powerful nation, which is now on the verge of bankruptcy.
President Abraham Lincoln saw the danger with the Catholic Church and the Jesuits and took it into consideration with great caution. President Barack Obama and his staff work together with Catholics and Jesuits. The USA is today on its way to be controlled by Catholic powers.
The Catholic Church is on the way to regaining the power it once had during the Middle Ages through, among other means, its representatives in the EU, through the New World Order and in the religious world, through the ecumenical movement. They have obtained power and influence through a centralised, global governing model and through international legislation. There are many people in USA who are strongly reacting against the global strategy that Obama is now promoting, as USA itself must subordinate itself to these worldwide laws that undermine the American Constitution. As a result, it wouldn’t be a surprise if a new type of civil war breaks out in USA. Many are already going against this global system, both in the US and in the rest of the world, and many others are also aware of the powerful Catholic influence upon the US governmental framework.
Secret societies and media
There are many who now realize that the large, international, secret societies are also working for a global order. It is basically the case today that one must be part of one or more of these secret societies in order to obtain a top position, whether it is within the political, business, military or religious level. Those in top positions work together in reaching the same goal namely being, influence, power, European and global unity and world dominance. It is only those who sit at the top of these secret societies that know the strategy. Their goal is hidden from the public eye as a result of the media’s tactic of blurring or hiding what is really going on behind the scenes. We see a monopolization of media channels which can be seen in light of a revealing statement from the Vatican, which says: “It is the Church’s birthright to use and own any of these media… the press, the cinema, radio, television and others of a like nature.” (Pope Paul VI, Inter Mirifica, 1964). The big media conglomerates of the world are in a large degree controlled by the Vatican and/or people involved with secret societies. The goal is the same: global control! Those who listen to such media, hear day after day how good it is with the international governing form. The media portrays such governing methods as the answer to the world’s problems. This is repeated again and again until people believe it. This resembles a hypnotic method called the Hegelian Dialectic, which is basically repeating something a numerous amount of times. In the end, people believe that it is so.
It is clear that there is strong peace movement in the world today. Due to wars, murder, crime and terror attacks in many places, people and nations shout out for peace! When we see peace initiatives, like the ones we see today, we are reminded of what the Bible says about peace.
“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3-6).
Peace, peace and safety! There are many things that point to this peace movement that is now intensifying. Because of this, we will see many similar events in the near future and peace will be brought about according to the globalists’ plans. The nations that do not go along with these plans will by subjugated by some form or another.
The contrast between Jesus and the world’s leaders
Those who work together on a global solution to obtain peace will not be successful in creating sustainable world peace. The only peace they will obtain is in written form, on paper. We have seen this before and it is something that doesn’t last in the long run. We need to follow the Creator’s plan if we will have peace on earth. The Creator has set up ten simple rules in the twentieth chapter of Exodus, verses 3-17. These rules are God’s Law, which give us a right relationship to God and fellow man. By following these, all would be well and peaceful here on earth. World leaders aren’t willing to follow these ten commandments and don’t bother to present it before the general public. They will create peace their way. They have instead made hundreds of laws that do not provide true freedom or peace. The only and true form of freedom and peace we can have is when we, in our heart and mind, say yes to Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour. We then have peace with God. Jesus Himself put it this way:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28). Jesus also says: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27).
If anybody should therefore receive a peace prize, it should be Jesus Christ. He has set up the best rules for peace and He has also done everything so that we could have a future and hope. Jesus has showed us everlasting love. “The little Bible” puts it this way:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).
Consider what humiliation Jesus has displayed. He, who was God, came to here to earth as a human being in order to save a lost world (Phil. 2:5-8). God had declared from the beginning of this world’s history that the wages of sin is death (Gen.2:17; see also 1 John 3:4) and because man had sinned, He offered Himself completely to die in their place and save them from eternal damnation. Jesus had to come down to our level. He came in the form of flesh and blood, in degenerated human nature (Rom. 8:3). He clothed his divinity with humanity and came as a human being. He was tempted in all points as we are, but never sinned. Paul describes this as follows:
“Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.” (Heb. 2:17,18 and 4:15,16).
“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:3-5)
Jesus was tempted by the Devil/Satan to commit sin (Matt. 4:1-11). The scribes and Pharisees also tried to tempt Him and came up with false accusations against Him. He was subjected to many trials. He was whipped, harassed, beaten, and spit upon. They put a crown of thorns upon His head and finally hanged Him on a cross as a transgressor, even though He never did anything wrong. There on the cross in Golgotha, He gave His life for you and me. Right after He cried out, “It is finished” and He died. The victory was gained. He lived a life without sin and it is therefore He is the author of eternal salvation for all who believe in Him. After His last breath upon the cross, they pierced His side with a spear and there came out water and blood showing that He was dead. His blood was spilled for you and me. He died for us so that we could have a chance for eternal life. Imagine, what a sacrifice, what love! He showed He cares about us. Shouldn’t you and me show our thanksgiving to Him by accepting Salvation’s gift?
Jesus was a fellow human being and a servant. He bowed down to help the weak and the outcasts and showed them signs of His love and sacrifice. He gave them a new future and a new hope as their Saviour and friend. The Bible says that Jesus didn’t have a place to rest His head. What a contrast to the world’s wealthy leaders who live in luxury, riches and splendour. They also have bodyguards and complete security systems to protect them if needed. These world leaders are trying to bind us by massive legislation, but Jesus came to set us free from all the bonds that bind us, whether it is the bondage of sin or man-made bondage. This is what Jesus said about His mission:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.” (Luke 4:18).
There are many who are oppressed and feel like slaves. They are not free human beings. The bondage of sin is the worst and Jesus says, “whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.” (John 8:34). Jesus will help us be free. He says: “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36). So it is possible to be free, truly glad and free! But there are also many who are bound by men and women in positions, authorities, churches, institutions, governments, etc. Christ has called us to break free from these bonds when they make us do differently than that which Christ has commanded. When we do not have the possibility to follow our conscience with regard to religious matters, we should say like the apostle Peter: “We ought to obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:29). It is important that we are allowed to maintain Christian liberty, Protestantism’s freedom.
Throughout his whole campaign while running for the US presidency, Obama used a poster with the word CHANGE on it. Hitler used the same keyword when he arose to power. History reveals what type of change that was. Now we will see what type change comes about during Obama’s term as USA’s president. The American people, as does the whole world, have huge expectations, but there is always large uncertainty when there is continual change. Change here, change there, and change everywhere. One soon realizes that they don’t have anything to hold on to. This is where Jesus comes into the picture. “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” (Hebrews 13:8). We can hold fast to God’s Word. We can depend on Jesus. There is no changing with Him. His principles and Ten Commandments are the same all the time, all the way. Jesus says: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6). When we accept the salvation Jesus offers us as a free gift, free of charge, yes, then will there be CHANGE in us and with us. Paul writes:
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Later, he writes: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2).
When we say YES to the gift of salvation, we are then promised the Holy Spirit’s working in our life as a source of power so that we can resist the Devil’s temptations (Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 10:13). We receive power to be Jesus’ true witnesses. That is what the world needs, witnesses for Jesus! They have a message to give and that message we find in the last book of the Bible, Revelation chapter fourteen, verses six through twelve and chapter eighteen verse four. Read them and you will see that God also has His people in fallen church denominations, denominations the Bible calls Babylon (Rev. 18:4). They will be called to come out of Babylon, out of Catholicism, out of fallen Protestantism…and all who follow in their paths.
We need change. We must put our own ego aside and fill our lives with Jesus and all that is associated with Him! Then will there be change that is according to God’s will! It is change that leads to salvation and eternal life with Jesus!
The system – not the person
Before I continue, I would once again like to say that we have nothing against Barack Obama as a person, neither against Ban Ki-Moon, other global or European leaders. We call them by name because they are leaders in large institutions in the world. They are God’s creatures just as we are and we wish them all the best in life. We would also like to see all come to an acknowledgement of the truth, humble themselves, confess their sin and accept salvation through Jesus Christ. It is the system they are trying to implement that we are against. We see that their global and European system conflicts and goes against God’s law and His principles.
We don’t believe we can stop this universal process, as the Bible reveals that the nations will unite in the end time under the Pope’s banner and that they battle against Christ (Rev. 17:14). We hope that somebody will be able to see the Bible’s revelations, repent and follow God’s way. If somebody comes to repentance and realizes that this global strategy goes against God’s will, then it is good.
Borders between the nations
The Bible says that God has placed borders between the nations so that they can follow after Him (Acts 17:26). Today we see the eradication of borders and the mixing of the masses. It becomes like one huge melting pot. It will soon be like in the Middle East. In this way, there will never be long-lasting peace. It is only when we govern our lives and our nation according to God’s principles that all will be well.
The millions for oil
When the oil exploration began in Norway in the 1970s, the political leaders said that money should be invested for the coming generations in that they would benefit from this money. It is not the common people who have actually benefited from this oil money, but the global system. It is misuse of money when billions for the oil industry are used for financing and upholding institutions that support the global system and its world leaders having large annual salaries, extravagant houses, expensive cars, fancy clothes and shiny shoes. There is a small group of people who attain to such luxury, while the rest of the world goes hungry, lives near the poverty line and the system is continually upheld by increased taxes and fees, which become higher and higher as time passes. This money should be given to the poor and suffering, but this is just wishful thinking. The world leaders’ system is one of free enterprise where the rich get richer and poor get poorer. Those who rule know that when nations and people become poor, they then do not have much with which to rebel; they are then easier to control. If they can eliminate many through vaccinations with severe and deadly side effects and poisonings, or through other subtle methods reduce world population, it will then be even easier to control the masses through a centralised system.
We are heading toward change, as proclaimed by Obama, but it is toward a superficial, controlled society where personal freedoms, free speech and liberty of conscience are gradually eroded.
Throughout many years, world leaders have drawn up a diverse, international legislation, which all nations of the world shall follow. They have done this through UN, EU, AU, WTO, WHO, IMF, the world’s central banks among others. Through these institutions and their legislation, they have provided themselves with power and authority. They have their key players throughout the whole world. They have now come to the point where they can begin to implement and realize their plans. This is what they use their power and authority for. They operate as if they had authority, but they have conferred this authority upon themselves.
No place or position
The Pharisees said to Jesus: “With what authority do you do this?” Jesus did not have any type of worldly, higher education, position or ruling status. He did, however, have authority that came from the Father, the Holy Spirit and from God’s Word. There is therefore no position or status that gives authority. I repeat, and this should be clear for all those in high positions. Positions do not give authority. Anybody who would be president in USA would not have any more authority after being elected than before. Anybody who would be the next pope in the Vatican would not have any more authority after being elected than before. Anybody who would be the highest leader within a religion would not have any more authority after being elected than before. Position or status never gives authority. It is the only the Word, a “thus saith the Lord”, that gives us authority. It is not position or status that gives us authority. It is God who bestows authority upon people and if they have no position or status, it is OK - they have authority in any case. Just think about Jesus where He says in Matt. 28:19: “All power, all authority is given unto Me in Heaven and in earth…” and He didn’t have position or status, He didn’t even have a place to lay His head. He didn’t have a ruling position in Israel’s governing system. He only had a tunic and went about doing good in Israel. He did not possess any worldly position. The Pharisees, priests and scribes, the lawyers and hypocrites had positions, they had status and could rule over Him, confront Him, judge Him. But where was their authority? They thought they had authority because they were in place of Moses. In Moses’ position, there was authority because he was in accordance with the Word of God; he was of one accord with Christ. A person who is in harmony with Christ, who serves God, who lives in Christ, can never lose their position because their position is with Christ, under the Almighty’s wings, under the Almighty’s protection. Where did Jesus get His authority from since He never had a position or status? How could He have authority? It was in the Truth He preached from God. All human authority, all true and genuine authority in the world comes through God’s truth, through the Word of God, through Christ.
To exercise authority
In Jesus’ day, those in positions used authority and power to rule over others. This is why Jesus said: “Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.” (Matt. 20:25). God has never given anybody in His church or any other world leader authority to exercise authority. There is a difference between the rulers of the world and God’s servants. The world’s rulers exercise authority; God’s servants have authority because they use God’s Word as their authority and the Word itself exercises authority. Therefore there is no power struggle between God’s men and women. There are no rulers. They are servants. We should all be servants. We should use God’s Word as our authority. We should let God’s Word exercise authority and we should all be servants and not rulers. Jesus said: “But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant and whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.” (Matt. 23:11-12).
Barack Obama is president of the world’s most powerful military power, the USA. Soon we will se what role this nation will play in the near future!
Obama, Catholics & the USA
The economic crisis originated in USA. After the swift destruction of the Twin Towers in USA, aggressive legislation took place that punishes terrorists throughout the world. This trend continues even while Obama promises better times ahead. What can we expect from Obama and his staff?
It is worth recognizing the fact that Catholics comprise the largest group in the US Congress. Many of these Catholics are Jesuits or have been trained at Jesuit universities based in USA. There are similar amounts of Catholic and Jesuit universities in the US. Currently there are 52 Jesuits in the US Congress, which is about 10% of 535 members. Eleven Jesuits have influence in the US Senate and 41 in the House of Representatives. (Information taken from the book Codeword Babylon, by P.D. Stuart and from Catholic News Service, Washington D.C., December 2008 and January 2009).
It is also noteworthy to recognize that 6 of 9 US Superior Court judges are Catholics. Dedicated Catholics will first and foremost be loyal to the Catholic Church’s principles. If the American law system is on a collision course with the Catholics Church’s laws, these judges will first and foremost be loyal to the Catholic Church’s laws.
We have this pronouncement from the Catholic Church:
“All Catholics must make themselves felt as active elements in the daily political life in the countries where they live. All Catholics should exert their power to cause the constitution of the states to be modelled on the principles of the true church.” - Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Letter of 1890.
Even though this was written a long time ago, the strategy is still the same. Catholics who are involved in politics are encouraged to legislate laws that are in accordance with the Catholic Church’s principles. This is what we see in USA and in the global strategy, both in the European Union, the African Union and in the entire international legislation. These Catholic principles are geared for the regaining power in USA, Europe, and even in the whole world. Everything will be centralised and internationalised, in this way they gain more power.
The EU block-building
The latest EU member country, Czech Republic, signed the Lisbon Treaty on November 3, 2009. “With the Lisbon Treaty taking effect, the Czech Republic will cease to be a sovereign state”, said Czech president Vaclav Klaus, right before he signed the treaty. (Yahoo News. By Karel Janicek, Associated Press writer, October 3, 2009). The EU-treaty took effect on December 1, 2009.
The Lisbon Treaty has now become the EU’s new constitution. In this treaty, it is written in a side note that the EU laws shall have pre-eminence over the Member States’ laws. (The exact text can be found as an Attachment to the EU-treaty on the functioning of EU, article 27). It seems like they have hidden this important text and placed it as a side note in the Lisbon Treaty. Nonetheless, there is much that points to Czech president Vaclav Klaus having read this text.
After the Lisbon Treaty has been signed and accepted, the EU now has its own president and foreign affairs minister. The new EU president is a Belgian, Herman Van Rompuy. Just as other EU leaders like Jacques Delors, Romano Prodi and Josè Manuel Barroso, “he is a practicing Catholic. He was trained at a Jesuit school, Sint-Jan Berchmans College in Brussels and has also studied philosophy and economics at a Catholic university in Leuven” (Kristeligt Dagblad, DK. November 20, 2009).
In a video on YouTube you can see Nigel Farage, one of England’s members in the EU-parliament, criticize the EU and characterize it as a superstate where leaders are picked out, not chosen democratically (YouTube, November 25, 2009). Neither the people of the 27 member states nor the EU parliament members, received a reason or opportunity to vote when the new EU-president was elected. He was picked out by the EU leaders. Many would characterize this as a dictatorship in a superstate.
A discreet occupation
Because the Lisbon Treaty says that EU-laws shall have pre-eminence over the member states’ laws, the Lisbon Treaty is therefore A DISCREET OCCUPATION, where member states have forfeited their independence and freedom. All Member States have been subjected to the Lisbon Treaty. They are now under Catholic rule. It is Catholics who started the EU, such as Jean Monnet, Robert Shuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi. (Kristeligt Dagblad, December 7, 2009). Furthermore, the EU system is structured after a Catholic model, the subsidiary principle (Lisbon Treaty, article 69C and Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2/e. part 3). In other words, it is Catholic principles that are embedded in the Lisbon Treaty and the 27 member states, soon to be 44, now forfeit their independence. We repeat: They are now under Catholic rule.
Through the men and women in the European Union who promote the Catholic Church’s principles, the Catholic Church has now won back much of the power it lost during the Middle Ages through this treaty. The EU is a miniature model of the New World Order. (Read more in the document, Watch Out for a CATHOLIC EUROPEAN UNION! at www.endtime.net).
A global rule is now in place
Right after Herman van Rompuy was elected as the new EU-president, he held a meeting where he presented his visions. Among other things, he said:
“We’re living through exceptionally difficult times - the financial crisis and its dramatic impact on employment and budgets, the climate crisis which threatens our very survival, a period of anxiety, uncertainty and lack of confidence,” he said in his maiden press conference. “Yet these problems can be overcome through a joint effort between our countries. Two thousand and nine is also the first year of global governance with the establishment of the G20 in the middle of the financial crisis. The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step toward the global management of our planet.” (examiner.com, November 22, 2009).
They openly admit, in other words, that the New World Order is in place, a global rule. Everyone should now raise their eyebrows and see that the Bible’s end-time prophecies are being fulfilled, right before our eyes. The world powers are in the process of gathering together, just as the Bible has foretold. The Bible has predicted that the last events movements will be rapid ones and that we will experience them now in this global electronic age. (Rom. 9:28; 1 Thess. 5:3).
The Jesuits’ influence
The Jesuits are a semi-secret organisation that work for the Catholic Church. They use all resources in order to reach their goal, namely being to advance the interests of the Catholic Church. Take notice to this statement from the book Codeword Babylon, pp. 68-69.
Jesuit Father Emmanuel Sa and Escobar state: “Promises are not binding if, in making them, you have no intention of keeping them.” (Heckethorn, Vol. 1, The Secret Societies of all Ages, op. Cit., p. 291; Blaise Pascal, Provincial Letters (1898), p. 186).
Here we clearly see that we cannot trust Jesuits to keep their word. They can say one thing and do another. How can we trust a Jesuit who has a position such as judge or any other high-ranking position in USA? In light of this, it is noteworthy to realize that Obama has Catholics and Jesuits all around him. Many of them who now have high-ranking positions in the U.S., have studied at Jesuit universities, like Jon Favreau (Holy Cross Jesuit University), Janet Napolitano (Santa Clara University), Robert Gates (Georgetown University), Tom Daschle (Georgetown University), Ron Klain (Georgetown University), Dan Pfeiffer (Georgetown University) and J. Scott Gration (Georgetown University), just to name a few (source: Wikipedia & Codeword Babylon). These Catholics, who are Jesuit-trained along with many others, are in governmental positions in USA. They have important positions in society and are members or leaders of departments or Congress. Jesuits and Catholics work for the Pope and the Catholic Church. As aides and co-workers with Obama, it is not difficult to imagine which direction they will take and in which direction USA will go. Whatever direction USA takes will have a huge impact on the whole world! We will soon see what this means as there is calm before the storm!
In their education at Jesuit universities, Jesuits receive a thorough understanding of the Catholic Church’s strategy. They well understand that the Catholic Church is striving for world dominion and therefore influence decisions in that direction through their well-trained positions. Before they begin their work on behalf of the Jesuits, they give an oath of allegiance to the Pope and the Catholic Church. Down below you have a part of the oath. Many of you have seen it before but now, during Obama’s presidency, we should be reminded of the powers that be. The following is a portion of the Jesuit oath:
“I do further promise and declare, that I will help, assist, and advise all or any of his Holiness’ agents in any place wherever I shall be, in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, Ireland or America, or in any other Kingdom or territory I shall come to, and do my uttermost to extirpate the heretical Protestants or Liberals’ doctrines and to destroy all their pretended powers, regal or otherwise.” – Romanism vs. Americanism, T.W. Callaway, p. 58-61;Congressional Record of the United States of America, February 15, 1913, pages 3215-6. (Also in “The Engineer Corps of Hell” by Edwin A. Sherman, pg. 118, 1883, Library of Congress Catalog Card #66-43354 and in the brochure “The Elite Tightens the Grip”, pp. 7-9, www.endtime.net )
In this oath, it is also given permission to use whatever resources necessary to reach their goal. This oath gives us a small glimpse of the Pope’s methods and plans to destroy Protestantism and the independent nations, including the USA. The plan is to, in other words, destroy Protestantism and the independent nations. Do we see this today? Do we see this in the USA, Sweden, England, Norway, Denmark, Holland, among others? Our answer is clearly, “YES”.
A global political authority
England’s prime minister, Gordon Brown, calls for a global economic order (guardian.co.uk, Jan. 26, 2009). Pope Benedict XVI calls for a global political authority (Pope Benedict’s Encyclical Letter, July 7, 2009). The Pope intends that “such authority should be regulated by law” and “with teeth”. Here we see the Pope’s global whip. Laws, international laws, shall regulate everything on this earth. These laws will function as teeth. What do we use teeth for? We crush that which comes between our teeth. So this global authority and these international laws will serve as teeth. All and any who go against this global authority will feel the long arm of the law. The punishment will be as teeth in their flesh. In other words, they will be punished in various, gruesome ways if they oppose the international legislation. These international laws will be global, encompassing all lands, including Norway’s, Sweden’s, Denmark’s, and USA’s population, and so forth. It is just in this way that the New World Order will work practically. We already see this tendency today!
Is there anybody, up to this point, who still doubts the information about the New World Order? By God’s grace, we have written about it for about 20 years now. We have seen how it more and more has become a melting pot of nations and that it is a fulfilment of prophecy as described below. Now is the time for those who have not already done so, to take these signs seriously because we cannot just let the world and our fellow man gradually move toward the cliff without giving a warning.
The EU started out as an economic alliance, as a coal and steel union. Later it developed into a political fellowship (EF) and thereafter into a European Union with a military component. We can see the same developmental pattern on the global level. Gordon Brown calls for a global economic order. Pope Benedict XVI calls for a global political authority. What do you believe will be the next step? The world’s leaders have saved the best for last as to disguise their true intention. In the end they will call for religious unity. The strategy to put in place religious unity overseen by the Catholic Church is nothing new, but has come about step by step and come to the point where it is today. Religious unity is already on the agenda and will soon shoot forth and blossom fully. Yes, it’s basically around the corner! Follow along and be ready for the big deception!
Unity on what premises?
The world’s leaders want unity – a global unity, but their unity is in stark contrast to Jesus’ form of unity. Jesus says: “Sanctify them (people) through thy truth, Thy word is truth.” (John 17:17). Jesus is the truth. We must abide in His truth. Then there will be true unity. Christ in us and we in Him. Christ with us and we with Him. (John 17:21). The Bible says that on the day of Pentecost, the disciples were all with one accord (Acts 2:1). They had reconciled their differences with one another and forgave one another. They had laid their sin upon Jesus. They had received a clean heart and mind. They had true unity, a unity in Christ. Then the Holy Spirit came upon them and great things took place. (Acts 2:1-6). This is the unity we must have. Then it will be a new Pentecost – and a new Pentecost will come! (Acts 2:17).
It will, in other words, be a global unity in Jesus Christ on the one hand and a global, man-made unity on the other. It will be one or the other. Those who place themselves on Jesus’ side will receive power to be Jesus’ witnesses. By the power of the Holy Spirit, they will reveal Christ’s character in their life and show love, joy, peace, longsuffering, patience, temperance (Gal. 5:22).
John writes in the last book of the Bible that Jesus’ witnesses will proclaim the last message of grace and warning to every nation, kindred, tongue and people. (Rev. 14:6-12). The Bible characterizes these witnesses as such: “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” (Rev. 14:12). They follow Christ all the way and they have pure heart. (Rev. 14:4-5). Jesus has these witnesses on His side and He says: “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations…” (Matt. 28:18-19). With Jesus, they then have strongest on their side. Even though they will face strong opposition and difficulties as they preach the last message of grace and warning, there is no one who can stop this movement because Jesus will make sure that the message is given. This message will put people to the test, whether they will be loyal to the Creator and Saviour and worship and serve Him, or whether they will be loyal to men as authority when their laws go against God’s commandments, will and way. Those who understand the importance will have Jesus as their authority! They have nothing to lose but everything to gain! The Bible says: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Gal. 3:28, 29).
They are then heirs of the kingdom of God. This is the promise to all those who receive Jesus in faith and choose to follow in His steps. (1 Peter 2:21).
The globalists want unity according to their laws and their principles, which go against God’s law and His principles. We know what the outcome will be. It is those who place themselves on Jesus’ side who, in the end, will be victorious. (Rev. 17:14; 15:2). On what side will you be on, dear friend? We should make the decision now! We have no time to lose!
U.S. president Barack Obama, Pope Benedict XVI, EU-president Herman Van Rumpuy and Ban Ki-Moon are attempting to be bridge builders. They are trying to build bridges between the nations on all levels -political, economic, military and religious. We see this through organizations such as UN, NATO, EU, AU, among others, and also through the ecumenical movement.
The pope has a title that has been taken from the Roman emperor. This title is Pontifex Maximus, which means “Greatest-Bridge maker”. But as we have seen before, Jesus Christ is the greatest bridge maker. He is the one who has made a bridge connecting heaven and earth. He is the middleman between God and man. Jesus Himself says: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6). The pope in Rome is trying to take Jesus’ place. (2 Thess. 2:3-4). The pope and priests believe they can forgive sin, but the Bible clearly says that it is only Jesus who can free us from sin. He is the sin-bearer, He takes upon Himself our sin when we humble ourselves, confess our sin and accept His forgiveness. John simply puts it this way: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9).
Jesus is the greatest bridge maker, not Obama or the pope in Rome. It is Jesus who is the way, the truth and the life. Jesus is our middleman, our shepherd and friend!
People have destroyed the earth
The Bible, God’s Word, clearly states that “the earth is the Lord’s” (Ps. 24:1). We are stewards. We have not properly managed the earth. It is people who have destroyed the earth. The Bible says, “the earth shall wax old like a garment” (Isa. 51:6), and “the earth mourneth and fadeth away…the earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.” (Isa. 24:4-6).
Today we see that the earth is “waxing old like a garment”. We experience natural disasters, oil spills, floodings, catastrophes and accidents both on sea and land. We experience and will experience many more tornados, cyclones, tsunamis and earthquakes, causing great destruction and death. Crops are destroyed and many more will be destroyed, hunger and tragedies will follow. Death-bringing plagues in the air will cause the death of thousands.
The Bible says that people themselves have destroyed the earth. Today we all experience that this is true. The earth is violated by its own inhabitants. But the Bible says why things are going so bad, namely because they have violated the laws the Creator has set up for our good. They have violated the laws, transgressed the commandments and broken the everlasting covenant. They have chosen their way. It is therefore the earth is being destroyed and its inhabitants must face the consequences of their wrong actions. We now see the result of bad politics and more will come.
The world’s leaders are not in a position to solve the world’s crises and lead us through the big crisis that is coming – it is therefore there are several crises and big crises.
UN and Ban Ki-Moon act on climate change
The UN acts upon the climate crisis as to gather the nations of the world, but they don’t admit that the world’s leaders have violated the Creator’s laws and have promoted a failed political policy that has destroyed the earth. Those people who have sympathized with their politics, especially in the industrialized world, are just as guilty in the destructions.
The UN has had many climate conferences in the past. At the climate meeting in Copenhagen on December 7-18, 2009, there were over 130 state and government officials in attendance. Representatives from 191 countries came. It has now been proposed that it is through the UN, that the earth’s crises shall be solved. Through the UN, the world’s leaders enact agreements that bind the nations into this global institution. The individual nations must follow their international laws.
In connection to this, it is interesting to take notice of a statement by Gorbachev, the Soviet Union’s former leader. He has been very active in gathering the nations under global rule. He says: “The environmental crisis is the cornerstone for the New World Order.” (Keep an eye on Gorbachev, by Anne Theroux, 8-22-01, www.rense.com).
USA gradually gives up its sovereignty
The world’s leaders love the so-called green line or global environmental politics. Through international top meetings, they themselves come into focus with their own global strategy. There is more control from the top, more international rules, higher taxes and more and more money and power given to the UN and the international institutions. In this way, the independent nations, including USA, gradually give up their independence and sovereignty over to the UN and their international laws.
UN leader Ban Ki-Moon appears to be a sympathetic man and he probably has good motives in that which he is doing, but the independent nations are on the way to being gradually occupied by this global power block that gradually binds the nations into the global rule via an international legislation, which overrides the national laws. The UN drives the same political agenda as the EU. They bind the nations with their international legislation. The EU is therefore a miniature model of the New World Order. All should now realize that the UN is also a representative of the New World Order.
The UN has Obama and Catholic support
The Catholic Church and Pope Benedict XVI support the UN as a leading world institution. The pope said: “There is a strongly felt need... for a reform of the United Nations Organisation, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth... there is urgent need of a true world political authority.” (BBC News, July 7, 2009).
When Pope Benedict XVI and U.S. President Barack Obama met at the Vatican in July, 2009, Obama said: ”Groups like the G-8 and U.N. must be reinvigorated to reflect a changing world with multiple power centers.” (USA Today, July 10, 2009).
When Barack Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo on December 10, 2009, he said in his speech that, “we must strengthen U.N. and regional peacekeeping, and not leave the task to a few countries.” (From Obama’s speech, reprinted in VG nettavis, December 11, 2009).
It looks like the Vatican and the pope use other institutions, in which they have influence through their men and women, to carry out their plans. They have used such a strategy for a long time. We now see that the EU, UN and USA play along with the pope’s international global strategy. In this way, it is not so easy to see clearly who is really behind all this, but the Bible has revealed this for us!
The Bible says that, “the woman (papacy – see clarification at www.endtime.net) reigneth over the kings of the earth.” (Rev. 17:18), and “for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy (papacy) sorceries were all nations deceived.” (Rev. 18:23). Think over these words. They say very much about the power, influence and strategy of the Catholic Church. The papal power has a strategy - sorcery - which other nations and people cannot quite fully grasp or understand. This why they are persecuted. We hope that these revelations can be of benefit for all those who read this, so that they won’t be persecuted!
The next Nobel Peace Prize winner?
Based on Ban Ki-Moon’s global involvement, would it be surprising if he turns out to be the next Nobel Peace Prize winner? Could it be the pope? Or could it be Norway’s prime minister, Jens Stoltenberg, if he succeeds in getting Norway to join the European Union or because he signs under several international agreements which gradually make Norway as a nation, a subdivision of the global rule? Every binding international agreement will, more and more, make our independence fall out of line. In becoming a subdivision, Norway would gradually lose its independence and freedom. We are allowed to exist as a nation, but under the globalist’s laws. This will also be the case for other nations who join in the global link.
Cooperation on all levels
Can we see how the Bible’s prophecies are being fulfilled in succession? Can we see that all of the world’s corrupted powers are gathering together? Yes, I believe we all see this. Even though they are not all now one voice, they will in the end have one mind and will give their strength and power to the papacy’s global plan (Rev. 17:12-14). This process is going on right now! The papacy and the Vatican work through the UN, USA, African Union, European Union, through the central banking system, through the secret societies, through powers and principalities in dark places, through many of the large universities, through the big media stations…yes, practically on every level. The borders between the nations are broken down through the international laws. They have destroyed Protestantism and the independent nations in accordance with the Jesuit oath and now form an international system. Is there anybody who is beginning to understand this? Yes, we have received so many inquiries after the first Obama pamphlet was distributed at the end of 2009 and we see that people are starting to wake up. Many now see the big picture.
The UN’s role – global control
We read in the UN charter, article 39: “The Security Council shall determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression and shall make recommendations, or decide what measures shall be taken in accordance with Articles 41 and 42, to maintain or restore international peace and security.”
The last section of article 41 reads like this: “And it (Security Council) may call upon the Members of the United Nations to apply such measures. These may include complete or partial interruption of economic relations and of rail, sea, air, postal, telegraphic, radio, and other means of communication, and the severance of diplomatic relations.”
Article 42: “Should the Security Council consider that measures provided for in Article 41 would be inadequate or have proved to be inadequate, it may take such action by air, sea, or land forces as may be necessary to maintain or restore international peace and security. Such action may include demonstrations, blockade, and other operations by air, sea, or land forces of Members of the United Nations.”
During an eventual crisis, we understand that the UN can have huge military power in that it can call in forces from all member states. There is no country that can stand against such a military force. The UN has organised an historical movement that is a part of the New World Order. A global revolution has started!
The rise and fall of the world’s powers
The Bible has foretold the rise and fall of the world’s powers long before it happened. In Daniel’s book, the second chapter, we see that church and state will receive power at the time of the end. We also see that the nations will try to join together through royal marriage, common marriage, political and religious “marriage”, but just as many marriages don’t last today, the Bible says that the nations that join together (in the last part of world history) will not last in the long run, just as little as clay binds with iron. (Daniel 2:41-43). It will be entities that easily fall from each other. This is something to consider when we see today how the nations are trying to unite in Europe and in the rest of the world! (More details on this prophecy in Daniel, chapter 2, can be found at the end of the pamphlet The Elite Tightens the Grip at www.endtime.net).
Who is actually behind the plans of The New World Order?
It wouldn’t come as a surprise if the Pope were to be the next Nobel Peach Prize winner? After all, it is the Catholic Church who is behind the plans of the New World Order. Here are some quotes in relation to this:
“The Church of Rome is one monarchy over all the kingdoms of the earth, and is, among temporal bodies, as the mind or soul of the body of a man, or as God in the world. Therefore the Church of Rome must not only have the spiritual power, but also the supreme temporal power.” (Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Letter, 1879
Pope Gregory repeated this idea when he said: “The power of the Church is superior to the power of the state.” Dr. G. F. van Schulte, professor of Canonical Law at Prague, states: “All human power is from evil and must therefore be standing under the Pope.”
These statements make it crystal clear that this political power is striving to gain power through control over governments and the powers of state. The Roman Catholic Church is labouring from the idea that is formulated in the Latin expression “de jure divino”, meaning that the church has the holy right to rule the whole world, all powers and human beings. It claims to have received this right from God Himself, and it will use all means towards this end - world dominion.
Dr. Bronson, a renowned Catholic authority, wrote: “The pope has the right to pronounce sentence of deposition against any sovereign, when required by the good of the spiritual order… the power of the church exercised over sovereigns in the Middle Ages was not usurpation, was not derived from the concessions of princes or the consent of the people, but was and is held by divine right, and he who resists it, rebels against the king of king and lord of lords.” (Catholic Review, June, 1851.)
Even though written long ago, the Church of Rome says that it never changes. Dr. Bronson confirms this position by stating:
“What the Church has done, what she has expressed or tacitly approved in the past, that is exactly what she will do, express or tacitly approve in the future, if the same circumstances occur.” (Catholic Review, January 1854).
The Bible says that this power has dominion over the kings of the earth and that the kings and great men of the earth will be as slaves. Many leaders have good motives in what they are doing, but they don’t realize Popery’s insidious strategy. They are thereby led astray by a crafty strategy, one in which they can’t really fully grasp.
We soon get to see how all forms of rebellion against this power in these last days, any failure to recognize the Catholic Church’s authority, through the EU as well, will be punished in one way or another. Those who will be faithful to Biblical principles, face tough times ahead as the Bible reveals that these world leaders war against Jesus and those who are on His side. This is confirmed in the next section!
All corrupt worldly powers
Let us hear to what the Bible has predicted: “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, WHICH HAVE RECEIVED NO KINGDOM AS OF YET; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. THESE SHALL MAKE WAR WITH THE LAMB, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” (Rev. 17:12-14).
In connection to this, it is interesting to notice that the borders between the nations have been broken down. They have been replaced with new regional borders. The global elite has for a long time, behind closed doors, worked out plans to divide the world into 10 regions. This was confirmed already in 1973 in the document called “Kingdoms”: The Club of Rome’s Ten Global Groups. Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System. Report on the Progress in the Strategy for Survival Project.” There is much that suggests that the dividing of the world into ten regions has something to do with the 10 kings that will receive power in the end time, for a short time together with the papacy. (The ten Horns are a symbol of ten kingdoms. Dan. 7:24).
The words “these have one mind” are very noteworthy because they reveal a common goal. Ellen G. White, a well-known Christian author around the world, comments on these verses: “There will be a universal bond of union, one great harmony, a confederacy of Satan’s forces.” (E.G. White, Manuscript 24, 1891). The words “and shall give their power and strength unto the beast” are also noteworthy. The same author made the following comment: “
Thus is manifested the same arbitrary, oppressive power against religious liberty, freedom to worship God according to the dictates of conscience, as was manifested by the papacy, when in the past it persecuted those who dared to refuse to conform with the religious rites and ceremonies of Romanism. In the warfare to be waged in the last days there will be united, in opposition to God’s people, all the corrupt powers that have apostatized from allegiance to the law of Jehovah. In this warfare the Sabbath of the fourth commandment will be the great point at issue; for in the Sabbath commandment the great Lawgiver identifies Himself as the Creator of the heavens and the earth.” (E.G. White, Maranatha, p.187).
It is on the religious level that the NEW WORLD ORDER will make the greatest impact. Church and state will unite and the church will use the state as a helper in getting religious laws enacted. The Bible says that the USA will work together with the Vatican in enforcing the Mark of the Beast (Rev. 13:12). See the characteristics of the “beast” at www.endtime.net.
Mark of the beast
There are many who still have not understood what the mark of the beast is. We will briefly take up this topic once again. The mark of the beast is a mark that the Catholic Church (beast) has. (A beast is a symbol for a power, kingdom, nation. Book of Daniel 7:17).
The Bible says that God created in six days and rested on the seventh day. He sanctified and blessed the seventh day as a day of rest for us. (Gen. 2:1-3; Ex. 20:8-11). This day is called the Sabbath. It lasts from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday. (Gen. 1:14-19; Nehemiah 13:15-21; Luke 23:54-56). But people decided that they would have a different day of rest. They combined the worship of the sun with them who began to celebrate/observe Jesus’ resurrection day. The common day of the rest for them was the Sunday, the Bible’s first day of the week.
What is Jesus’ day of rest? During Easter, the day in which Jesus’ died is known as Good Friday. The Bible calls this day the preparation day, or the day before the Sabbath (Luke 23:54-56). The Bible calls the day after the preparation day, the seventh day Sabbath. The day after the Sabbath is called the first day of the week, or Sunday. The Catholic Church itself says that it transferred the meaning of the Sabbath over to the resurrection day. The change was her act and the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things. Here is one of the quotes:
“Sunday is our mark or authority...the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact.” (Catholic Record, London/Ontario, Sept. 1, 1923; Also from H. F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons).
Pope John Paul II acknowledged in his apostolic letter “Dies Domini” that the Sabbath, the Bible’s seventh day, is the correct Biblical day of rest. He then turns around and acknowledges that they have chosen the Sunday instead of the Sabbath. He takes the following conclusion:
“This is why Christians, called as they are to proclaim the liberation won by the blood of Christ, felt that they had the authority to transfer the meaning of the Sabbath to the day of the Resurrection.” (Dies Domini (Day of the Lord), point 63. Published May 31, 1998).
Do you see the weakness in this argument? The pope defends that Sabbath-keeping has been transferred to Sunday-keeping and that they felt that they had the authority to make this change. The pope admits, in other words, that they have changed the day of rest. He means that they had the authority to do this. But they have conferred this authority upon themselves. Now they have begun to call the Sunday for Sabbath, but Sunday is a false sabbath. The pope also admits that the Sunday, as a day of rest, is a tradition. The question is now therefore: “Can we base our decisions and faith on feelings and man-made traditions?”
Because God has chosen a day of rest, which He put aside for holy use and man has also chosen a day of rest, we must now choose, which authority will we follow and be loyal to?
The mark of the beast deals with the issue of worship (Rev. 13:15). We either worship God as Creator or we worship the beast and its mark. The Sabbath commandment has to do with worship. It is in this commandment that God reveals Himself as the creator of heaven and earth and we are enjoined to worship Him as Creator.
The Bible says that the mark of the beast can be received either in the forehead or right hand. (Rev. 13:16). The Bible says that the forehead deals with the understanding, the decisions we make in our brain (in the mind). This decision-making centre is located in the frontal lobe of the brain. The Bible also says that the forehead is a symbol of that which we think between our eyes, that is the mind, in the frontal lobe of the brain. The right hand is a symbol of actions or that which we do with our hands (Deut. 11:18; Ex. 13:8-11, 16; Deut. 6:6-9). The text sounds like this:
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Rev. 13:16-17).
Those who refuse to receive the mark of the beast, in other words, those who reject an unbiblical day of rest, the Sunday, when law enforces it…will be punished and will not be able to buy or sell. (Rev. 13:17). So the punishment is that you are not allowed to buy or sell. Then can the new electronic money system, the ID-card or other electronic systems, become part of a control system. The mark of the beast is not a number code or a chip that is placed under the skin. This is human speculation. It is not Biblical. But this number code system or chip can be connected to some type of controlling system, so that they can control you in not being to buy or sell. This is the punishment because you are not obedient toward the global authorities. Yes, the Bible reveals that there will be laws that say that them who will not receive the mark of the beast will be killed. (Rev. 13:15). But don’t despair dear friend. This is the big test right before Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world, comes again! If He be for us, who can be against us. It is He who has all power in heaven and earth. (Matt. 28:19). He will allow to a certain point but no further. If they take our life, they cannot take our faith. If we are faithful until the end, we will receive the crown of life (Rev. 3:10-13).
Moreover, many say that 666 is the mark of the beast, but the Bible says that 666 is the number of the beast, a number for a man, a man’s number (Rev.13:18). This number, 666, applies also to the pope. Each pope has a title, VICARIUS FILII DEI. This is Latin and means Vicar of the Son of God. Each of the letters in Latin has a corresponding number value. If we assign I=1, C=100, A, R, S, F and E=0, U and V=5, L=50, and D=500, and we add all of these together, we get 666, the number of a man, the number of the pope’s title.
The great historical turning point
The great historical turning point or change will be when USA, land of religious liberty, soon enforces the mark of the beast = Popery’s mark. The Bible says that this nation has been as a lamb, but will change its character and speak as a dragon. (Rev. 13:11). There are big contrasts between a lamb and a dragon. A dragon is a symbol of the Devil and Satan (Rev. 12:7-9). The USA has been as a lamb, it has been a land of religious liberty, where each individual can worship their God after their conscience. In the American Constitution, it states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion (U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, §1). But there will be a change when this nation begins to speak as a dragon. A nation speaks through their legislation. We are now already seeing how this nation has begun to make laws that will apply to the whole world. They bind nations and people with international laws and the voice of the dragon will be more audible when they enforce the mark of the beast.
The Bible says that USA will get help from the Vatican in enforcing the mark of the beast = forced Sunday observance (Rev 13:12). State and church will back this up. The church receives help from the state in enforcing the mark of the beast. There will be forced religion, the great historical turning point. USA, which has been a land of religious liberty, will then be a religious-persecuting land. Religious liberty will exist no more. As mentioned before, the Pope will back this up. The great turning point is not that the Vatican goes along with persecution, as they have persecuted Christians throughout the ages, not least during the Middle Ages. Over the last ten years or so, the Vatican has showed a soft side but they have not changed. Their dogmas are the same. They are worked behind the scenes and make their plans behind closed doors. The Bible says that the deadly wound they received during the Middle Ages, when Pope Pius VI was taken prisoner by Napoleon’s general, Berthier, in 1798 and taken to France where he died, would be healed in the end time. This is what is taking place now and we will soon see how church and state (a representation of the beast = a Catholic model) will be united, enforce the mark of the beast and persecute those who refuse to obey the authorities (Rev. ch. 13).
Will Popery’s plans be carried out in our time?
It looks like the last spiritual battle draws closer and closer in these last days. Plans have been in the making for a long time now. In May 2009, a law proposal in the EU was put forward where they “will protect Sunday as the week’s day of rest.” Even if this proposal doesn’t get majority vote, bishops and priests will do all they can so that this proposal gets a majority vote in the next session. In any case, we see what their intention is; they will uphold Sunday as the day of rest by law. This is what lies before us.
After the war, Berlin’s city council made their own law that allowed the shops to be opened on Sunday 10 times per year. Since January 1, 2010, this law is no longer valid. Now they must accept a law that establishes that the Sunday is the week’s day of rest in Germany.
It was the Catholic and Lutheran Church that took this Berlin-law up before the superior court. They were not happy about the shopping on Sunday. They wanted to get rid of it. This is why it came up before the superior court.
On December 1, 2009, the same day that the Lisbon Treaty took effect, the superior court in Germany decided that the country’s capital, Berlin, must take consideration to laws that say that the Sunday is the week’s day of rest and that one should rest from work and receive spiritual improvement. (Deutsch Welle, December 1, 2009).
This law can be found in a supplement or appendix to the Basic Law under the heading “Extracts From the German Constitution of Aug. 11, 1919 [Weimar Constitution].” Under the section “Religion and Religious Societies,” Article 139, we read: ”Sunday and holidays recognized by the state shall remain protected by law as days of rest from work and of spiritual improvement.”
We see that it is the church that pressures the state to promote the Sunday as a day of rest. The consequence of enacting the Sunday law is the same as establishing a state-religion in Germany and siding with the Roman and Lutheran Church, which both have the Sunday as a day of rest. This becomes religion by force for those who keep the Sabbath, the Bible’s day of rest, as their day of rest.
Now that Germany brings this legislation of Sunday, as a day of rest, up to the surface, it will soon spread to the EU and thereby to all EU member states. We now see what is going on. The Sunday, as a day of rest, is making its way to the surface!
In USA, there are several Christian organizations that are working to have the Sunday as a national day of rest. One of these is The Christian Coalition. On March 1, 2007, there were representatives of over 30 different church denominations gathered together at the Fuller Seminary (Fullerton, CA). The Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church also had their representatives there. It was The Christian Coalition who invited to the meeting. During this meeting, a ten-point program was accepted. They now hope that this program will be accepted in the U.S. Congress. The meeting concluded by emphasizing “The Book of Unity”. In point number 7 of 10, it states the following: “Throughout all the land, a National Day of Rest shall be honored by governments, industrial manufacturers, and public shopping facilities.” (Christian Coalition of America, March 1, 2007. Updated Ten Amendments Commission, The Book of Unity, point 7). Nobody needs to be in doubt about which day they will have as a national day of rest in USA.
In 1888, there was also a proposition brought before the U.S. Congress to have the Sunday as a national day of rest. At that time, A.T. Jones came forth and defended the Biblical day of rest, the Sabbath, and said that if the Sunday was introduced as a national day of rest, it would go against the American Constitution, which says that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. The individual person would also then not have the freedom to follow their conscience in matters of religion. (The national Sunday Law, by Alonzo T. Jones before the United States Senate Committee on Education and Labor, December 13, 1888, p. 46-47). At that time, the Sunday law proposal was rejected, but now we see Catholic, Orthodox and Lutheran denominational leaders uniting in order to promote the Sunday as a day of rest. Pay attention to how it is now the church, which will ask the state for help in enacting the Sunday as a national day of rest.
In Maryland, USA, in 1961, the Superior Court decided that they would support the “Blue Laws” that say that the Sunday is the day of rest and that no one should do any business. But through this law, they would “serve to provide a uniform day of rest for all citizens on a secular basis and to promote the secular values of health, safety, recreation, and general well-being through a common day of rest.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_law#Court_cases).
This form of argumentation is common when they try to legislate the Sunday as a day of rest. They promote these Sunday laws as a social law and as a family day, as to disguise it as having nothing to do with religion. But we see in which direction this is heading and soon this trend will explode!
Pope Benedict XVI travels around the world and promotes propaganda for the Sunday as a day of rest. He says: ”Without Sunday we cannot live.” He calls on Europe and the EU to ”defend traditional values” and “its Christian roots”. (Reuters, Sept. 9, 2007 and the Trumpet.com, Sept. 17, 2007). The pope could just have said it straight out, without beating about the bush, that he desires them to ”defend Catholic values and Catholic roots”.
Sunday as a day of rest is something both fallen Protestantism and Catholics can be united on. It is a unifying point in the global strategy. Therefore, because the Sunday issue has been so open in Germany, USA and in the EU, it seems as though USA, during this crisis time, will also see the Sunday as a unifying point to implement Sunday as a national day of rest. Nobody as of yet has received the mark of the beast, but when USA enforces Sunday as a national day of rest, by force, law or command, then will the mark of the beast be a fact. USA has been a trendsetter in many things and will also be a trendsetter in enforcing mandatory Sunday observance – by law – against all odds. Yes. The Bible says “all the world wondered after the beast” (papacy). (Rev. 13:3). There will only be one exception, it is those who will rejoice to have God as their authority. They will be loyal and keep the day of rest that the Creator has chosen.
Therefore, when USA enforces the mark of the beast, soon will all other nations in the world follow suit and enforce the mark of the beast as well, just as if it were a global, religious injunction.
This issue of the mark of the beast will be the last, big, decisive test right before Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world, comes again. May you and we be faithful to the Lord!
“As we near the close of time, there will be greater and still greater external parade of heathen power; heathen deities will manifest their signal power, and will exhibit themselves before the cities of the world, and this delineation has already begun to be fulfilled. By a variety of images the Lord Jesus represented to John the wicked character and seductive influence of those who have been distinguished for their persecution of God’s people. All need wisdom carefully to search out the mystery of iniquity that figures so largely in the winding up of this earth’s history. God’s presentation of the detestable works of the inhabitants of the ruling powers of the world who bind themselves into secret societies and confederacies, not honouring the law of God, should enable the people who have the light of truth to keep clear of all these evils. More and more will all false religionists of the world manifest their evil doings...” E.G. White: Manuscript Releases vol. 8, page 322; Ms 139, 1903, p. 5, 6. (“The Message in Revelation,” October 23, 1903).
It looks like the trade unions will play an important role in the enforcement of the ‘mark of the beast’. The trade unions are now consolidating and forming a global trade union. The European UNI trade union is central in this development. They want to prohibit Sunday shopping. Several countries are involved in this, like Australia, Croatia, Czech, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia. This is a grass root movement which is laying the foundation for exalting Sunday as the day of rest. Religious liberty is gradually diminishing through these Sunday-laws. They term these laws social laws, to disguise that it is related to religion. Do not let yourself be bound into their lasso by being a member of the trade unions. If so, you are directly or indirectly agreeing with their unbiblical decisions.
The Bible gives us these options:
Either: “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.” (Rev. 19:20,21).
Or: “And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.” (Rev. 15:2).
May you and me be part of this last group!
Change and hope
US president Barack Obama has promised change and hope. What change? Soon we will all experience what this change is. It is calm before the storm! A storm is coming.
We are now only experiencing a gentle breeze with the precursors of an economic collapse already in progress. Soon we will experience more demise within industry, falling house prices, and failing banking systems on the verge of bankruptcy. Students and young families are lured and fall for the low interest rates but when the rates rise again, many are no longer to keep up with the payments. They lose all. We have already seen how insurance companies and the social benefits system is shaky, the educational system doesn’t work, as it should, transportation costs are on the rise and do so drastically. We will experience food shortages, far more serious that many believe today. It is now nearly the case that almost nobody grows their own food any more here in Scandinavia, they just go to the markets and buy. Most of the food is imported. How will it be when a heavy economic collapse takes place, when there is a shortage of food, money, gasoline and oil, when interest rates rise and we become slaves under the government’s whip? Maybe you don’t believe it will be like this. Maybe you believe there will be change for the better and that we are soon heading for better times? There are many who mean that world rulers think there are too many people to control. We can only expect massive depopulation through the use of, for example, mass vaccinations with severe side effects that possibly lead to death, poisonings, wars and other technical and biological weapons.
The world has already felt the results of the economic collapse. But it will be worse, much worse. The Bible says that the silver and the gold are in the hands of the Whore (all the characteristics of this whore apply totally to the Catholic Church). The merchants and great men of the earth do business with her. They become rich through her business connections, but all of a sudden, there will come a surprising, economic collapse. The Bible describes it this way:
“And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more…The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, and saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought.” (Rev. 18:9-19).
The economic collapse came from USA. Now it looks like they will rectify the economic imbalance, but soon will it be even worse. Ellen G. White accurately writes that “The people of the United States have been a favored people; but when they restrict religious liberty, surrender Protestantism, and give countenance to popery, the measure of their guilt will be full, and “national apostasy” will be registered in the books of heaven. The result of this apostasy will be national ruin.” (Ellen G. White, Review and Herald, May 2, 1893).
The results of this national ruin will spread to other countries and there will be chaos everywhere! This happens just before Jesus comes again! How far are we in time?
How will it be for the rich and their riches?
“Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.” (James 5:1-5).
These are the conditions that await the rich in the last days. We are now in this time and will see these words completely fulfilled. The rich cannot trust in their riches in these last days! We can only trust in the Lord!
Tragedies and natural disasters
Looking reality in the eyes: We are experiencing accidents and disasters in the air, land and sea, huge fires, powerful tornadoes, terrible hailstorms, storms, floods, cyclones, tsunamis, earthquakes, destroyed crops, hunger, deadly pestilences, disease of all kinds among both humans and animals, deepened immorality, prostitution, brazen sexual assault, murder, wars and rumours of wars. Why are such things taking place?
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 Tim. 3:1-5).
National borders are swept away, foreigners flood in and religious opposition takes place. Confusion sets in like at Babel. The nations of the world unite in Europe and in the rest of the world. Large business, banks, companies, etc. merge and become huge, powerful conglomerates. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The poor become slaves under the power elite’s diverse legislation. The big cities, technology, and computerized society contribute to a more and more controlled and superficial world.
All these are signs of the times, which were predicted to take place right before the King of kings, Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world, comes again. Let us give the peace prize to Jesus. He is the Prince of Peace (Isa. 9:6). It is He who has given us a future and hope!
“When ye shall see all these things, know that He is near, even at the door.” (Matt. 24:33).
“When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads! For your redemption draweth nigh.”(Luke 21:28).
