Economic matters are central to the unrelenting drive to unify the world. While the movers and shakers of globalism continue their determined course to force all nations into one world government, one world religion, and one world economy, the effort is not all smooth sailing, particularly not when it comes to the region that is key to the unfolding of Bible prophecy.
The covert but assiduous planning by the powers that be, stipulating that Planet Earth be divided into trading blocs yet become economically unified as one, seems an exercise that defies reason. There is considerable resistance both within the European Union (EU) and within the most volatile region on earth. Nonetheless, the implementation of this paradoxical blueprint must not be impeded, according to one leader of recent years who held the presidency of the EU.
TUNIS, April 30 (Reuters) – French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Wednesday the Israeli-Palestinian conflict must not be allowed to obstruct his planned Union for the Mediterranean, which he said would “change the world.”
Sarkozy aims to launch the new grouping of 27 European Union countries and their southern neighbours in Paris on July 13.
He was forced to scale back plans for a full EU-style “Mediterranean Union” after fierce resistance from Germany, which feared it would split the EU and siphon off common funds… “I know that, inside the project of the Union for the Mediterranean, there is the issue of Israel and the issue of Palestine, Sarkozy said.
“I’m fully aware that all this is in the background … but this should not stop us acting. It should encourage us to act’” (Reuters, RPT-Mideast conflict must not hinder Med Union-Sarkozy., Wed., April 30, 2008).
Since the years the Frenchman held the EU presidency, much has transpired in the world. Europe has, like America and the world, undergone stark economic changes. However, the EU, as well as other nations, continue to pursue regional power bases in order to interact as influentially as possible on the world stage in global economics.
Excessive devaluation of the American basic unit of currency, the dollar–engineered, I’m convinced, by internationalists–might have produced unintended consequences, at least to the extent that have eventuated in recent days. That devaluation was engendered in part by the European currency’s (euro) swift rise.
The dynamic monetary interaction worldwide has thrown unforeseen perplexity into the mix of the world-governance gurus’ attempt to put together the various trading regions, whose seminal concept almost certainly was centered within Europe, with America’s champions of globalism joining in the collusion. In my view, at least, the North American Union (NAU) was born directly from this collusion, and is destined to grow as part of what will become a 10-region global system of commerce.
While America, its buying power diminishing, seems moving willingly toward the amero as an alternative to the failing dollar, the nations marked for Mediterranean Union offer the stiffest resistance to the plans to build the global economic order.
The region, with its new-found confidence of indispensability because of realities involved in the growing need for oil and natural gas around the world, feel empowered to resist the European and American fiscal engineers to put them in a regional box of worldwide commerce. Those Mid-East nations and their visceral hatred for Israel are bound to exert pressures on America and Europe to marginalize Israel even more than at present. Make no mistake, the internationalist movers and shakers will show the tiny Jewish state no favoritism in the matter of getting their way in producing the global trading regions they want. Israel’s government, no matter who is prime minister, will find itself under unparalleled pressure to acquiesce to the Mid-East petroleum powers.
It isn’t out of bounds to conjecture whether the oft-examined prophecy of Zechariah might revolve around currently developing matters:
“The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it” (Zech. 12:1-3).
Again, the prophecy toward which this generation rages is clearly delineated by God’s Word: “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as 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” (Rev. 17:12-13).
The key to the beast system coming forth is the presently developing economic convulsions taking place in America and around the world. This means that Christ’s return for His Church–all born-again believers in Jesus for redemption, for reconciliation, for salvation—will, perhaps very soon, take place in the twinkling of an eye. Then will begin the journey to the Father’s house, their home for eternity.
