My desire was to take this week’s Nearing Midnight commentary in a direction other than end-times geopolitics. It seems this area of stage-setting for fulfilled prophecy has too often dominated my thinking on how near we might be to Christ’s call to the Church. But, my desire was overridden; I am convicted, by the Spirit’s nudge to deal again with things involving globalism.
In preparing for taping a television interview (which by the time this commentary appears will have been completed), one of the interview questions the network gave me kept flashing in my mind’s eye: “If we’re headed to a new world order and one-world system…if it’s been prophesied in Scripture…then what would you say to those who might ask, ‘Then, why fight against it?’”
The first answer that leaped to mind was Paul the apostle’s exhortation as recorded in Ephesians chapter 6. That’s the one we’ve used often in these articles –the description of the battle we face: not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness in high places.
We as believers are to dress in the whole armor of God and stand against this evil.
I can find no better reason in Scripture for doing as instructed in that preparation for battle against the things so obviously on Satan’s agenda as we near that midnight hour of the Tribulation.
We who name the name of Christ are not alone as we fight this crucial battle. The Lord Himself is leading the way.
I don’t want to be misunderstood here. I do not intend to give the current president of the United States glory that belongs to our Lord. Mr. Trump, as pointed out many times in these essays, is but an instrument used to accomplish God’ will–wittingly or unwittingly. I do, however, believe that this president is beginning to get the message, through those God has placed around him. That message is that he–Mr. Trump–is in that office and is apparently, for a time determined by the God of Heaven, impervious to the unbelievably virulent assaults that continue to come against him.
So it was that I kept having the interview question flashing in my thoughts.
“If we’re headed to a new world order and one-world system…if it’s been prophesied in Scripture…then what would you say to those who might ask, ‘Then, why fight against it?’”
The answer, in addition to the one involving Ephesians 6, should include this: We should fight against the globalists trying to bring on the Antichrist platform for world rule because the struggle is working. True, it is a temporary stopgap against the evil that is so obviously assaulting America’s sovereignty and the last bastion of freedom around the world. But it is indeed working for this end-of-the-age moment so near the time of the Rapture.
The Lord is seeing to it that we are able to stand against that wickedness in high places. That force consists of Satan’s minions, both human and demonic.
We have to look no further than one considered by many to be a prime mover in the effort to bring America into a one-world configuration, to bring this president of the United States down so that a globalist can be installed in the office.
We get a picture of our struggle being successful by looking at a quite interesting article:
George Soros recently expressed his frustration that “everything that could go wrong has gone wrong” referring to the rapid dismantling of the New World Order spearheaded by President Donald Trump.
The billionaire globalist who financed of countless Color Revolutions all across the world told the Washington Post that he was “living in [his] own bubble” due to failing to foresee Trump’s meteoric rise.
Soros expressed fears that Trump “is willing to destroy the world” and vowed to “redouble [his] efforts” by pouring millions of dollars into opposing everything that the President stands for all across the world.
In a recent report by the New York Times, it was revealed that Soros and Hillary Clinton paid women to accuse Donald Trump of rape.
Since the report broke, Soros gobbled up a lion’s share of the publication by buying $3 million worth of stocks in the NY Times.
While the Hungarian-American might come off as full of doom and gloom in his interview, he actually has a reason to feel that way because Trump has single-handedly presided over the dismantlement of the Liberal-Globalist world order that Soros has worked for decades to build.

As indicated in the title of this article, George shouldn’t fret. He’ll eventually get the new world order he craves. He has God’s Word on it:
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. (Revelation 13:16-17)
But that same Word goes on to say further:
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. (Revelation 19:11-15)
Come to think of it, George, on second thought, you should be worried. No doubt about it!
