One World Governance: Introduction
5 “Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. 4 Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. 5 You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.” James 5:1-6
They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” Genesis 1:4
Firstly, this is the introduction of eight posts covering existing global governance agendas and new plans launched by Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, covering every aspects of our lives with topics ranging from economy, health, climate, technology, science, workforce, travel, education and citizenship. I have also written an article, Governments' Actions on Covid-19: Crimes Against Humanity, on Covid-19 outlining the policies that have been implemented, the overall response of governments and the people behind the scenes driving various agendas via our elected officials including a single global health mandate. The article was inspired by a video I watched, Crimes Against Humanity, by Dr. Reiner Fuellmich.
Dr. Reiner Fuellmich, a top German lawyer, admitted to the bar in Germany and in California for 26 years and known for corruption trials against Deutsche Bank and VW and now a member of German Corona Investigative Committee says those responsible for the COVID fraud scandal should be trialled for probably the greatest crime against humanity in history. He discusses the findings of the Corona Investigative Committee that was formed on July 10, 2020 by four lawyers. The committee is made up of lawyers, doctors, and scientists who together have reached the conclusion that COVID may well be the greatest crime against Humanity in history.
A team of worldwide lawyers and scientists are investigating the illegality of the coronavirus pandemic and with an international network of lawyers is intent upon launching a class action Lawsuit.
Secondly, I know that you may come across various sites, some even claiming to be “Christians”, that there is a conspiracy of wealthy influential Jews of bankers, lawyers, etc who are planning to bring in the New World Order and who are forming a one world government.
I have to address this because it grieves me for it is a hatred specifically against Jews, that has gone mainstream. It is heavily promoted on sites like the QAnon and by so called “Christians” who believe that God has replaced Israel with the Church – this is not biblical, and unfortunately many Christians see “Christian themes” or scriptures in these sites and are held captive by the lies that is from the enemy.
Contrary to popular opinion, Hitler did not invent the hatred of Jews. Jews in Europe and elsewhere have been victims of discrimination and persecution for centuries. It is impossible to believe, even after the Holocaust, that antisemitism is rising once again specially in Europe and the rest of the world, including the politics of the left and right.
Thirdly, just as the world has QAnon, Christendom has New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) that is influencing mainstream evangelicals, some are even members of Trump’s Evangelical team. These men and women claim they have the God-given authority, divine strategies and miraculous powers needed to advance God’s earthly kingdom so that Christ can return. If you submit to their leadership, then you too will work mighty miracles, become part of a great end-time army that will bring about a world revival.

“A Brave New World” – the dystopia that awards the world
Everything starts with an idea
For decades, progressives have attempted to use climate change to justify liberal policy changes. But their latest attempt – a new proposal called the “Great Reset” – is the most ambitious and radical plan the world has seen in more than a generation.
The “Great Reset” is a radical plan to transform the economy by world leaders. At the virtual meeting in June hosted by the World Economic Forum, some of the planet’s most powerful business leaders, government officials and activists announced a proposal to “reset” the global economy. Instead of traditional capitalism, the high-profile group said the world should adopt more socialistic policies, such as wealth taxes, additional regulations and massive Green New Deal-like government programs, in every “country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article published on WEF’s website. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”
Schwab also said that “all aspects of our societies and economies” must be “revamped,” “from education to social contracts and working conditions.”
Joining Schwab at the WEF event was Prince Charles, one of the primary proponents of the Great Reset; Gina Gopinath, the chief economist at the International Monetary Fund; António Guterres, the secretary-general of the United Nations; and CEOs and presidents of major international corporations, such as Microsoft and BP.
Prince Charles on Monday called for a “new Marshall-like plan” to fight global climate change in a video recorded for the launch of Climate Week in New York.
“At this late stage I can see no other way forward but to call for a Marshall-like plan for nature, people and planet,” Charles said in the video remarks, according to Reuters, referring to the U.S. plan to aid Europe after World War II.
“We must now put ourselves on a warlike footing, approaching our action from the perspective of a military-style campaign,” Charles reportedly said.
Prince Charles has launched his own “content platform”, as he turned editor-in-chief to share videos and stories to save the planet from climate change.
For decades H.R.H. Prince Charles has been advocating for the environment. His unique position makes him an influential supporter of sustainability and actions that address global problems such as climate change, deforestation, and pollution.
Speaking at Davos for the World Economic Forum 2020 in January 2020 just before the COVID-19 global outbreak, he warns business leaders of the approaching catastrophe that is climate change if they don’t change ways. “What is the point of extra wealth if you can do nothing except watch it burn?” he asked.
In September, following on from the launch of the virtual “Great Reset” summit, Prince Charles declared “At this late stage I can see no other way forward but to call for a Marshall-like plan for nature, people and the planet,” he added, in reference to the massive US-backed programme to rebuild a shattered Europe after the second world war and that countries such as the UK and Germany, as well as the EU, have committed to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, but Charles said this was not enough. “2050 simply suggests we have room to delay….It is absolutely vital, given the enormity of the problem we face, that we make truly transformative progress along the road to net zero by 2030”, he said.
Speaking at Climate Week 2020, Prince Charles launched RE:TV, a “content platform”, as he turned editor-in-chief to share videos and stories to save the planet from climate change. The Prince has curated a series of films and articles on subjects close to his heart for RE:TV, an online channel designed to “champion inspiring solutions from around the world”.
A selection of more than a dozen short films and articles will be available at re-tv.org with more added weekly. Case studies include India’s Solar Labs and its novel use of AI to optimise energy capture; U.K.-based Polymateria, which develops biodegradable and compostable plastics; and South Africa’s Hippo Roller – an innovative and vital tool that enables better access to clean water. Explainer films will clarify what carbon capture, the circular bioeconomy and other process and ideas are, while written pieces are being commissioned from various thought-leaders in sustainability.
RE:TV will champion inspiring solutions from around the world. With content curated by Prince Charles, viewers will be able to explore content in five defined sub-channels: Re:Imagine, Re:Design, Re:Balance, Re:Invigorate, and Re:Invest.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said it was a chance to build more equal, inclusive and resilient economies and societies that could stand up to pandemics, climate change and other global challenges. "The Great Reset is a welcome recognition that this human tragedy must be a wake-up call. It is imperative that we re-imagine, rebuild, redesign, reinvigorate and rebalance our world," he said.
The United Nations’ Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development programme and the “New Green Deal / Green New Deal” is intertwined with the Great Reset. This is evident when studying the WEF’s Strategic Intelligence unit. Sustainable Development and the Great Reset go hand in hand; this and Covid-19 will accelerate rather than delay progress towards 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
Strategic Intelligence is system of “contextual intelligence that enables users to trace relationships and interdependencies between issues”. There are more than 250 topics and the connections and inter-dependencies between them covering every sector, countries and trading blocs like the European Union.
When the disciples came to Jesus and asked Him, ‘…Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?’, He told them things were going to get worse before they got better. Then He added these words: ‘…See that you are not troubled…’ (Matthew 24) In looking up the word "troubled," I found that it means to wale, to clamour, or to be frightened. He said see to it that you don't cry, nor be someone who allows themselves to be frightened. In essence, what He was saying is this: ‘Don’t fall apart when bad things happen.’
The Bible is filled with signs as to what the end times will look like. Some signs are so specific we can’t miss them. Unfortunately, complacency and lack of prophetic teaching has prevented us from seeing the signs:
Archaeology and the Bible
Archaeologists once boasted that the Bible was full of errors because no independent, historic evidence had been found to confirm the Bible's claims, but a slew of astounding discoveries has put a damper on their boasting. I recently completed a serious of articles confirming the mounting archaeological evidence that the bible's historical record has been proven by many archaeological discoveries from the land of Israel and the increasing finds in the City of David. Over the years there has been discoveries from Old Testament empires, like Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, the events in Greece, and Rome and the Jews, as well as from discoveries concerning ancient Israel and the historical evidence of the many events recorded in the New Testament.
One World Religion
Revelation 17 speaks of a "great prostitute" (or "great harlot") that is generally understood as a metaphor for a false religion that will exist during the tribulation period.
This false religion of the last days will consist of an inclusive religion that allows for a pluralistic view of God. This would include even liberal monotheistic groups that see "all religions as one" and are willing to worship the Antichrist in the last days.
Whatever this religion is, it will certainly exclude any faith that is exclusive and refuses to worship the Antichrist or his image. Revelation 17:6 states, "And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus." This false religion will permit and even encourage the death of those who follow Jesus during the tribulation.
Further, this false end-times religion will include sexual immorality (Revelation 17:2). It will also likely have its headquarters in Rome, often described even in New Testament times as Babylon (Revelation 17:5; 1 Peter 5:13).
One of the greatest dangers to Christianity today is the deliberate suppression of biblical truth for the sake of unity. The danger intensifies as we see many highly visible and influential Christians are jumping on the Vatican’s ecumenical bandwagon. Instead of warning believers that this false unity is the emergence of the "last days" apostate church, evangelicals are embracing and applauding those who are engineering it.
Amazingly, we seldom hear warnings against apostasy from our pulpits. Rarely are false teachers, who seductively lead people away from the true faith, exposed. These apostates are appearing as ministers of righteousness and are facing very little opposition. They successfully deceive the undiscerning because pastors and church leaders are not speaking out against them.
It is indeed disturbing to see so many evangelicals unaware of the Vatican’s strategy for bringing the world under the dominion of the papacy. The Vatican has made a concerted effort since 1965 to bring their "separated brothers’ back home to "holy mother the church." In his 1995 encyclical Et Unum Sint, Pope John Paul II said he intends "to promote every suitable initiative...to increase the unity of all Christians until they reach full communion" and "to encourage the efforts of all who work for the cause of unity." The pope’s stated desire is "to gather all people and all things into Christ, so as to be for all—an inseparable sacrament of unity... expressed in the common celebration of the Eucharist."
The Vatican’s ecumenical movement goes beyond the unity of all professing Christians. Their strategy is to bring all religions under the power and influence of the papacy. Pope John Paul II has been traveling the world to build bridges to all non-Christian religions. In a recent speech he said, "Christians and Muslims, we meet one another in faith in the one God...and strive to put into practice...the teaching of our respective holy books. Today, dialogue between our two religions [Roman Catholicism and Islam] is more necessary than ever. There remains a spiritual bond which unites us and which we must strive to recognize and develop." Even Mother Theresa had the ecumenical spirit as noted from her book Servants of Love. She stated, "we went every day to pray in some temple or church. The Archbishop gave us permission to do so. We prayed with the Jews, the Armenians, the Anglicans, the Jains, the Sikhs, the Buddhists, and the Hindus. It was extraordinary. All hearts united in prayer to the one true God."
The Pope's Push for a One-World Religion - Mike Gendron
The recent UAE-Israel Peace Treaty, titled, the ‘Abraham Accords,’ highlights the ever-present role of religion in the Middle East, even in presumably secular state functions such as diplomatic recognition. The UAE spearheaded the charge and named 2019 the ‘Year of Tolerance,’ where they welcomed Pope Francis for the first ever papal visit to the Arabian Peninsula. In Abu Dhabi, Pope Francis and Ahmed el-Tayeb, the leader of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious theological institution, signed the Human Fraternity Document to foster a culture of mutual respect between Muslims and Christians. The UAE ended their year of tolerance by inaugurating the Abrahamic Family House, a complex that will house a church, synagogue, and mosque by 2022.
The Middle East Peace
The Israel–United Arab Emirates peace agreement, or the Abraham Accord, was agreed by Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on August 13, 2020. The UAE is the third Arab country, after Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994, to formally normalize its relationship with Israel, as well as the first Persian Gulf country to do so.
Bahrain has become the latest Arab nation to agree to normalize ties with Israel as part of a broader diplomatic push by President Donald Trump and his administration to fully integrate the Jewish state into the Middle East. There are also ongoing discussions with the Trump Administration and Israel to normalise relations with other Arab nations and even militant Muslim countries like Saudi Arab, Sudan and Lebanon.
I should say that this is not the Seven-Year Covenant that Israel will sign with the Antichrist, but I do believe that this endless push for a peace deal will finally happen as prophesied and we may be seeing the beginning of a tentative deal that the Antichrist will “confirm” as prophesied in Daniel 9.27. However, this will occur only when we, the church, departs and meet the Lord in the air “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Cor.1:51-52).
We are to ‘be watchful’ in helping to understand today’s events as related to biblical prophecy. That is what ‘watchmen or women’ do. Jesus made clear that when He actually does come for His disciples, His wise and faithful servants would be aware of the time because they would be watching. They would know the season of the times by "watching" those things ‘coming to pass or occurring’ as Jesus said they would. The ‘benchmark sign(s)’ always point towards Israel / Jacob. God’s prophetic timepiece. The false peace / covenant confirmed by the Prince/Beast among Arab nations (“the many”) is a key sign of the times or the season of the times. Yes, we are in that period. The Prince/Beast will likely confirm and enhance the current ‘normalization’ agreement with Jacob to be a ‘peace’ agreement, to be extended to 7 years from the current 5 years, to include some agreement permitting the rebuilding of the Third Temple in exchange for ‘some portion of Jerusalem.’ The current ‘investment’ period for the Palestinians stands at five (5) years to join the peace deal, the economic portion, that was unveiled last year in Bahrain.
The Third Temple
Israel has formed a new committee in their government that could have prophetic significance when it comes to the Temple Mount. Israeli and Saudi officials have been conducting secret talks since December, mediated by the United States, with the aim of integrating representatives from Riyadh onto the Islamic Waqf Council that controls the Temple Mount – for years now religious Jewish leaders have been preparing for the eventual building of the Third Temple, preparing the Temple priests, archaeological drawing, making of various Temple-related utensils and reinstating the Sanhedrin after nearly 2000 years.
Gog and Magog War
2,600 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel foretold of a time when a coalition of predominately Muslim Nations would gather together to invade the nation of Israel. This well-known conflict is known as "The War of Gog and Magog."
According to the book of Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39, this confederacy of nations will attack Israel during a relatively peaceful period that appears to be generated by a recent conflict resulting in a "state of peace" for the Jewish nation.
After many days you shall be called. In the latter years, you shall come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered out of many peoples, against the mountains of Israel which had been always a waste. But its people were brought out of the nations, and they, all of them, are dwelling safely ... and you shall say, 'I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will go against those who are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls and having neither bars nor gates'" Ezekiel 38:8, 11
Since Russia joined alliance with Syria, we have been seeing an increasing formation of the Gog/Magog Coalition (Ezekiel 38-39) that attempts to come against and invade Israel, “a land with no walls and a false sense of peace and security from a false covenant”.
Most of the nations referred to in Ezekiel are referred to by their ancient names. Their modern names are Russia, Iran, Turkey, Sudan, areas of modern Iraq and Syria and possibly Germany. Libya is still present-day Libya. Interestingly, these nations are all presently aligned and they all hate Israel. Also, Iran and Russia are currently in Syria on Israel’s northern border with a strong military presence, where the invasion will come from.
The Russia-Iran-Turkey triple Alliance is growing with recent military trade deals as well as joint military training exercises that also included China. Unfortunately, Israel has signed several trade deals with China to manage the key critical infrastructures, Ashdod and Haifa ports. The Haifa Port is a critical infrastructure and one that has caused the US, on numerous occasions, to express their concerns - “Israel’s submarine fleet is based at Haifa, which is also a port of call for the U.S. Sixth Fleet. Thus, ceding control of these ports to a foreign entity — in this instance, a Chinese company — entails risks that are, or should be, plainly evident”.
The overall volume of Israel–China trade has expanded dramatically in the last two years, as Israeli companies have begun to invest in the Chinese market to a much greater extent than before. Israel, like most US allies, believes that it will be able to walk the fine line between responsiveness to US security concerns and continuing to build commercial ties with China. Senior Israeli officials were quoted last month as saying that ‘while Netanyahu would have no problem preventing Chinese companies from participating in government tenders for telecommunications, he would be hard-pressed to cancel a tender for building a port in Haifa, since the Chinese company that won it has already begun the construction work.’
The 13-year-old United Nations embargo on Iran that blocked the nation from buying and selling weapons has expired, despite U.S. protests. Iran’s foreign affairs minister, Javad Zarif, called the occasion a “A momentous day for the international community, which— in defiance of malign US efforts—has protected UNSC Res. 2231 and JCPOA. Today's normalization of Iran’s defense cooperation with the world is a win for the cause of multilateralism and peace and security in our region.”
The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency claimed last year that if the embargo was allowed to expire, as was in keeping with the five-year timetable described by the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, then Iran would potentially attempt to purchase fighter jets, anti-aircraft missiles, and tanks from Russia, or other arms from China.
However, Iran has a long history of arming and financially supporting its proxies. Despite the UN arms embargo, Iran continued sending weapons to Yemen’s Houthi rebels. Tehran denies arming the Houthis, but Western governments and weapons experts have repeatedly linked Iranian arms to the rebels. Now Iran is free to supply terrorist entities across the globe with, not only locally produced weapons, but arms it buys on the open market.
“[Do] we want to wake up October 19 knowing that there are now conventional weapons being sold to Iran so that they can then transfer those to their proxies and also to rogue states that have terrorist organizations?” asked U.S. Ambassador to the UN Kelly Craft. “Everyone knows full well what will happen on that date, and it’s not just the Iranians, it’s the entire Middle East.”
“The United States is prepared to use its domestic authorities to sanction any individual or entity that materially contributes to the supply, sale or transfer of conventional arms to or from Iran, as well as those who provide technical training, financial support and services, and other assistance related to these arms,” Pompeo said in a statement.
However, some countries like Russia and China seem undeterred by the threats. Russia has openly eyed arms sales to Iran recently. Last month, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said he looked forward to “new opportunities in our cooperation with Iran” after the embargo ends. Russian Ambassador to Iran Levan Dzhagaryan said last week that Moscow would be willing to sell Iran the S-400 missile defense system. China and Iran have also been holding ongoing negotiations for a 25-year strategic partnership that would include military cooperation. U.S. reports indicate that Iran and North Korea have renewed their cooperation on ballistic missiles, and Turkey also seeks to sell weapons to Iran.
Antisemitism and Christian Persecution
The prophetic fulfilment of the Jews flocking back to Israel since 1948 is so overwhelming, the government is fearing that they won't be able to absorb them. But seventy-five years after Auschwitz, antisemitism is on the rise. In a recently published book, Demonizing Israel and the Jews, Manfred Gerstenfeld explains that what happens in France is happening all over Europe. "Polls show," he wrote," that well over 100 million Europeans embrace a satanic view of the State of Israel (...) This current widespread...view is obviously a new mutation of the diabolical beliefs about Jews which many held in the Middle Ages, and those more recently promoted by the Nazis and their allies."
Even in the midst of Covd-19, record numbers of Jews are seeking to return ‘home’. French Jews have cited anti-Semitism for leaving France to make Aliyah and Germany's continuing antisemitism problem is troubling. In 2019, the Anti-Defamation League found that the American Jewish community experienced the highest incidence of anti-Semitic attacks since 1979, when tracking began. Recently, a Canadian far-right politician called for removal of Jews from Canada. A Tel Aviv University think tank found that COVID-19 is fuelling worldwide wave of anti-Semitism, the old hatred of blaming Jews and Israel for pandemic are spreading, as crisis sparks new iterations.
In the last few years, we have seen a growing increase in the global persecution of Christians. Many people are all too aware of the violent side of this – with the attacks on Christians by Muslims by groups like Islamic State and al Qaeda in the Middle East and Boko Haram in West Africa. However, there has also been a less visible trend of increasing legal restrictions placed on Christians by governments around the world.
An article in The Times in June highlighted the extent of the culture change that is taking place in Britain today. It stated: “Good people are silenced in an Orwellian nightmare where a tyrannical minority decide what we are allowed to say”.
The persecution of Christians in parts of the world is at near "genocide" levels, according to a report ordered by Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt. The review, led by the Bishop of Truro the Right Reverend Philip Mounstephen, estimated that one in three people suffer from religious persecution.
Throughout almost the entire twentieth century there were no arrests of street preachers, the first such arrest such arrest in recent times being in 1997. However, since then we have increasingly seen multiple arrests of street preachers every year. We are also seeing increasing persecution of Christians in the West as countries globally adopt UN initiatives on “hate speech” which will criminalise Christian beliefs that includes forcing Christians to lie irrespective of biological evidence on the current social issues that’s making free speech impossible. Hate speech has also been used, not just against Christians, but society as a whole. Christian leaders and churches are also facing abuse in social media, destruction and vandalism of churches, loss of employment or arrested for evangelising. In addition, the various Human Rights Commissions and Tribunals, enforcing the regularly amended Human Rights Codes, have consistently targeted Christian and conservative individuals and institutions for alleged discrimination.
Lawlessness continues to grow in America and elsewhere as well as with record of demonstrations, over racism, violence and unrest over election results in many East European and Latin American countries, fulfilling prophecy of lawlessness and that the love of many will grow old and ‘men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken’ because of the unprecedented tumult that includes civil wars, rumours of wars and unusual weather events across the globe. (Luke 21:26)
Old Testament prophets, Jeremiah, Hosea, and Zephaniah, speak of birds and fish being swept away or consumed before God's judgement on Israel:
Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because [there is] no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away. Hosea 4:1-3
I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD. Zephaniah 1:3 4
How long shall the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? the beasts are consumed, and the birds; because they said, He shall not see our last end." Jeremiah 12
We can be assured that they were prophesying of times of destruction of ancient Israel, and their prophecies came to pass. In other words, these prophecies have been fulfilled. But the pestilences and famines foretold as signs of the times for the last days most likely involve animals as well as man.
According to a report published by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction:
In the period 2000 to 2019, there were 7,348 major recorded disaster events claiming 1.23 million lives, affecting 4.2 billion people (many on more than one occasion) resulting in approximately US$2.97 trillion in global economic losses.
This is a sharp increase over the previous twenty years. Between 1980 and 1999, 4,212 disasters were linked to natural hazards worldwide claiming approximately 1.19 million lives and affecting 3.25 billion people resulting in approximately US$1.63 trillion in economic losses.
The human cost of disasters: an overview of the last 20 years (2000-2019) - United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction
The UN is always geared to promoting its agenda of climate change but the bible states that 'While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night shall not cease' (Gen 8.22).
In other words, the natural cycle of things was promised to continue, and nothing special was meant to happen to the climate whilst man is around. Of course, man may well be upsetting what God had planned.
However, an increase of natural disasters will be one of the hallmarks of the end-times:
Mass Animal Deaths For 2020 - List of worldwide mass animal deaths for 2020, with pages also for mass die offs from the previous 9 years. There are animals dying all over the world today in huge numbers, due to the polluted state of the sea and air. Millions of Fish and massive numbers of various marine creatures are washing ashore dead. Birds are falling dead out of the sky, and millions of poultry and wildlife are dying from avian flu. The animals of the land are also dying in large numbers. Now although animals and fish have been dying all throughout history, we have not seen the massive consistent numbers that we are seeing today.
Up to 1,500 birds flew into some of Philly’s tallest skyscrapers and died in one day. The slaughter shook bird-watchers. More bizarre events include - Up to 1,500 birds flew into some of Philly’s tallest skyscrapers one day last week. The slaughter shook bird-watchers. Maciejewski gets emotional when he speaks about all the birds he finds, but nothing, he says, prepared him for what happened Friday. “So many birds were falling out of the sky, we didn’t know what was going on," he said, choking up. "It was a really catastrophic event. The last time something like this happened was in 1948.” On Friday, an estimated 1,000 to 1,500 birds flew into buildings in a 3½-block radius of Center City overnight and into early morning during what Maciejewski called a “perfect storm” of avian calamity. That could mean thousands more likely perished elsewhere in the city, he estimated. He collected 400 birds between 5 and 8 a.m. in the radius he regularly covers roughly spanning 17th to 19th Streets between Market Street and JFK Boulevard — an astonishing number, according to an Audubon Pennsylvania official. “There were so many, I was picking up five at a time," Maciejewski said. “One guy from building maintenance dumped 75 living and dead birds in front of me as if it were a collection." Maciejewski logs each bird, noting its flight path, time, and location of impact. "There were so many birds I ran out of supplies.”
Birds ‘falling out of the sky’ in mass die-off in south-western US - Flycatchers, swallows and warblers are among the species “falling out of the sky” as part of a mass die-off across New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Arizona and farther north into Nebraska, with growing concerns there could be hundreds of thousands dead already..... “The fact that we’re finding hundreds of these birds dying, just kind of falling out of the sky is extremely alarming … The volume of carcasses that we have found has literally given me chills.” The first deaths were reported on 20 August on White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. Initially, incidents were thought to be unrelated, but thanks to online forums, ornithologists noticed that they were happening all across the region
California will kill 3.2 million trout - to stop the outbreak of a bacterial infection that’s threatening hatcheries, wildlife officials said Monday. Outbreaks have been reported in fresh and saltwater fish farms and shellfish hatcheries but also cattle and poultry farms around the world, according to a statement from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. However, the bacterium had never been detected in fish in California before it was found at the Victorville facility in April. About 60,000 fish have since died.
95% of Marine Life on Sea Floor Killed in Kamchatka Eco-Disaster, Scientists Say - Nearly all seafloor-dwelling life in pollution-hit waters off Russia’s Pacific coast in the Kamchatka region has been wiped out in an unexplained mass death of marine animals, scientists told the region’s governor Tuesday.
Last month, the Guardian reported that at "least 380 whales are dead in one of the largest mass strandings on record globally and the biggest in Australia’s history" - Whale rescuers at one of the world’s largest stranding events on Tasmania’s west coast have now released 88 of the 470 marine mammals into the ocean, with about 20 of those remaining now well enough to be rescued.
Apocalyptic scene in nuclear Russian city as birds fall from sky & lie scattered around streets - photos and videos posted online showed a Russian street littered with birds’ corpses. The incident happened in Balakovo, a city best known for its large nuclear power plant. Residents of the city, in the Saratov Region, around 1,000km south of Moscow, witnessed a road strewn with dozens of dead birds.
Natural disasters, wildfires - California have burned more than 6 million acres this year (6,250 square miles; more than double the old one-year record): This is in addition to wildfires in Washington, Oregon, and other states. More than 31 people have been killed and more than 8,400 structures have burned. The tenth named storm (the most ever in one year) is in the Gulf of Mexico and bearing down on the U.S. So, we have the worst wildfires ever and the most named storms ever to hit the U.S. in the same year (like birth pains)."
Colorado firefighters struggle to control large blazes in drought-stricken state - Colorado firefighters were struggling to control several large wildfires, including the state’s largest on record, with smoke badgering some of the most populous areas in the region. The largest blaze in Colorado, the Cameron Peak fire, has scorched 203,634 acres and destroyed more than 50 structures in the Arapaho and Roosevelt national forests since it ignited in mid-August and is 62% contained, according to InciWeb, a wildfire tracking site. But new fires have continued to break out, including a blaze that started on Saturday about 17 miles north-west of Boulder and has destroyed at least 20 homes, and a fire that started Sunday about 20 miles north-west of Boulder and caused the evacuation of at least 145 homes. That last fire prompted the evacuation of the entire town of Ward, which has about 150 residents, county officials said.
I write these articles to help Christians understand the times that we are living in and how the prophetic stage of world events is being set and converging. The transformation for a fully globalised monetary system is here. The transition of a centralised world systems of food supplies, surveillance and technology is here. The technology for the mark of the beast is here and Covid-19 has given the techs the incentive to market various options that combines biometrics with digital payment systems, digital identity and health data. Recently, on the WEF’s website, biometric tech sensors that can be printed directly onto human skin, was promoted. The kingdom of 10-nations to govern has been mainstreamed. This prophesied kingdom will take place when the church has been raptured and midway in the seven year tribulations, (3½ years, 42 months, l260 days), the Antichrist will form a “Ten-Nation Confederacy”. But it is on the agenda now and has been reported in the mainstream media, driven by think-tanks, Boris Johnson through the G7, and Emmanuel Macron via the European Union.
As 2020 moves forward, most people have no clue what is happening and what will happen. It is the era of great fear because almost no one has a handle on the happenings or the future. This is not news, for thousands of years ago scriptures said that “My people will perish for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). Regardless of topics discussed here, with the advent of the Rapture, people will ask, “Why weren’t we told?” For two thousand years, the words of Christ have beckoned every generation to “Be on your guard; the Son of Man will come when you least expect Him” (Luke 12:40).
Those who are in Christ Jesus will not face condemnation (Romans 8:1), and all who call on Him will be saved (Acts 2:21; Romans 10:9-13). The Rapture or “Caught Up” will happen, and be over in less than one second. That is why it is a very wise decision to ask Jesus to forgive you and be your Saviour before it happens.
Once a person takes their last breath on this earth, their forever is set. Heaven or Hell are the only two options; and each person is responsible for the choice they make. Just saying “But I’m a good person” will not save anyone. no one is a “good” person; there is only One who is good, and that is God Himself. No one can keep the Law perfectly. The Bible says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). The Bible also says that the wages of our sin is death (Romans 6:23). Salvation is not based on our goodness but on Jesus’ goodness. The message of the gospel is that we can never be good enough to get to heaven.
Each minute you delay calling on Jesus is a gamble, because we’re not guaranteed to be here for the next one. When our time is up, either by death or Rapture, it will be set in stone what our eternal destination will be. Right now would be a great time to make your eternal home with Jesus a sure thing. He’s waiting for your call so He can prepare a place for you (John 14:1-3).
If we confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in our hearts that God raised him from the dead, we will be saved (Romans 10:9). This salvation in Christ is a precious gift, and, like all true gifts, it is unearned (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8–9).
Are you a prodigal? Were you raised in the love and safety of a Christian home, but thought the world offered more fun and excitement? Your Father is waiting for you just like the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32). Take a look at your life and see how sin has bankrupted you. It doesn’t matter what you have done, there is hope and forgiveness; just repent and return to your Heavenly Father now. “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up” (James 4:10).
