There is a book on the market
today that was published in the 1990's by Malachi Martin, entitled "The Keys of This Blood",
Simon and Schuster. Martin, a former Jesuit and professor at the Vaticans Pontifical
Biblical Institute, details the late popes plans for conquering the world.
- Taken from the dust
jacket of Malachi Martin’s book, the publisher states: "In this timely
and provocative new book, bestselling author Malachi Martin reveals the
untold story behind the Vatican’s role in the collapse of the Iron
Curtain, as well as the popes far-reaching assessment of the three-way
contest now unfolding among the global powers the Soviet Union. . . the
capitalist nations of the West, and the pope’s own universal Roman
Church a winner-take-all race against time and each other to establish,
maintain, and control the first one-world government that has ever
existed on the face of the earth. . . And Martin reveals the pope’s own
blueprint for a genuinely geopolitical structure: a one-world government
that is both viable and humanly acceptable."
The term New World Order
received attention as never before when former President George Bush Sr., during the Persian
Gulf crisis of the early 1990's, gave a speech mentioning the New World Order that is coming. When Kuwait was
invaded, they looked to America for military help. A National Public Radio correspondent
called George Bush Sr. the "president of the world."
Time magazine has
called America "the worlds sole remaining superpower." Charles
Krauthammer, writing in the New Republic,
said we now have "a
highly unusual world structure with a single power, the United States, at the apex of the
- What Is In Store
For The Future?
- With the United States as the only
superpower left on the scene and the Vatican working to bring about a one-world
government, from a religious standpoint, what is in store for the future? Is China worried
about their future? Newsweek magazine reports, "As they watched the collapse
of communism in Eastern Europe and Russia, Chinas aging leadership became convinced
that the man most responsible for the partys fall from grace was none other than the
pope himself. Internal party documents accused him of directing reactionary and
subversive forces against communists everywhere."
Catholicism, with the
cooperation of the United States, wants to bring about a one-world government. Will they
succeed and set up another world empire to try to bring about world peace and order?
Lets look and see if the
Bible talks about this most important subject, the New World Order.
- The Bible Has
Much To Reveal
- The Bible has much to reveal about what is
going to happen in the world. In the book of Daniel we can find the answers.
"And in the second year
of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was
troubled, and his sleep brake from him." Daniel 2:1.
Nebuchadnezzar was greatly
disturbed by his dreams, but could not remember the details and was very distressed. He
put forth a decree that unless the dream was made known to him, all the wise men and
astrologers of ancient Babylon would be slain. Daniel and his three friends were among
this group of wise men. All of the other wise men and astrologers could not tell the King
his dream or any part of it. Daniel and his three companions prayed for the God of heaven
to reveal to Daniel the kings dream. God allowed Daniel to dream the same dream that
King Nebuchadnezzar had dreamed.
dream he saw a great image. The head of the image was pure gold; its chest and arms of
silver; the thighs were of brass; and the legs were made of iron. The feet were composed
of iron mixed with clay. The King saw a stone cut out of a mountain without human help,
fly through the air and strike the image, upon its feet. The gold, silver, brass, iron,
and clay were completely shattered and broken, and became like the chaff of the
summer threshing floors. Daniel 2:35, and the wind blew them all away. Then the
stone began to grow, soon it became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
- God Had Shown
Him. . .The Future
- Daniel explained to King Nebuchadnezzar
that God had shown him what was to happen in the future. The different parts of the image
represented four world empires which would rule the world in turn. "Thou art this
head of gold," Daniel 2:38. The golden head represented the world kingdom of Babylon
ruled by the King. Daniel revealed that the rest of the kingdoms would not be as great as
the Babylonian empire, which Nebuchadnezzar ruled, and that there would be four empires
total Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome.
Years later more events of
the dream began to take place. Belshazzar, who was Nebuchadnezzars grandson, was the
king when the Babylonian empire fell. Belshazzar was holding a drunken feast. During this
feast Belshazzar decided to mock the God of heaven by drinking wine from the sacred cups
taken from the temple of God when Jerusalem had been captured by his grandfather. While
the crowd was drunk, a supernatural hand appeared, writing on the wall: "MENE, MENE,
TEKEL, UPHARSIN." The meaning as given in the Bible is: "God hath numbered thy
kingdom, and finished it. . . . Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and
Persians." Daniel 5:26- 28. That very night Darius overthrew Babylon, killed
Belshazzar, and Medo-Persia was the new world empire.
The overthrow of Medo-Persia
took place by the Greeks at the Battle of Arbela in 331 BC. Greece, which succeeded
Medo-Persia, was divided into four parts at the death of Alexander the Great, and finally
lost world dominion, being overthrown and succeeded by Rome at the Battle of Pydna in 168
Daniel had also told
Nebuchadnezzar about the fourth and last earthly kingdom, "And the fourth kingdom
shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and
as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise." Daniel 2:40.
"And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters clay and part of
iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron,
forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were
part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
. . . but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay."
Daniel 2:41- 43. Daniel told the King that the fourth world empire, Rome, would be divided
as represented by the ten toes of the image. Some of the resulting nations would be strong
and some would be weak. This has been fulfilled as the nations of Europe are the
successors to the Roman Empire.
- They Shall Not
- Through the years since the fall of the
Roman Empire there has been an ongoing effort to bring about a united Europe and another
world empire. History records show that every attempt has failed. Just as Daniel
predicted, "but they shall not cleave one to another." Daniel 2:43. Daniel was
revealing to the King and also to us, "What shall be in the latter days." Daniel
The new attempt to bring
about a New World Order is another effort to form a one-world government. All the attempts
that have been made to bring about another world empire have failed, and it has been at
great loss of human lives. The reason that they all have been, and will continue to be
unsuccessful is because they are not listening to the God of heaven. He told Daniel that
there would not be another world empire after Rome. The nations have gone against the Word
of God. Their lust for power and wealth have caused war and bloodshed.
- All Attempts
- "With Rome fell the last of the
worlds universal empires. Heretofore it was possible for one nation, rising superior
to its neighbors to consolidate them into one vast empire. But when Rome fell, such
possibilities forever passed away. The iron was mixed with clay and lost the power of
cohesion. No man or combination of men can again consolidate the fragments."
Prophecies of Daniel and The Revelation, Uriah Smith, p. 60. Time and time again men have
dreamed of rebuilding one mighty kingdom. Charlemagne tried it; Charles V tried; Louis XIV
tried; Napoleon tried; Kaiser Wilhelm tried; and Adolf Hitler tried. All attempts have
failed. The current attempt may appear for a time to be successful, but it will be short
But Daniels prophecy
goes on and explains the future, the near future. ". . . the God of heaven set up a
kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other
people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand
for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without
hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver and the gold;
the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream
is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure." Daniel 2:44,45.
Gods kingdom will not
come as a result of politics. God says that He will set up His kingdom, and His kingdom
will stand forever. The time prophecy for Gods kingdom to be set up is in the very
near future. Jesus second coming will usher in the last and eternal kingdom. All the
events that we see rapidly taking place in the world point us to the soon coming of
Christ. We will not see a one-world empire this side of heaven. You can be a part of
Gods kingdom. Wont you ask Him to come into your heart now so you can be ready
for Jesus soon coming.
- In The Name Of
- There is more Bible prophecy that tells us
we are about to see the world unite under the influence of the papacy. We will be told
that in the name of world peace, all nations need to succumb to the Vaticans vision
of a one-world government, a New World Order.
The world will make another
attempt to unite, but this is just a false hope of world peace. We know that we have a
more sure word of prophecy, and that the Bible explains to us the next kingdom is
Gods kingdom. This good news brings to our hearts the promise of everlasting peace,
and the joy of spending eternity with God. Just think of it. "And God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." Rev.
