A unified field theory of world government (global hegemony) is predicated on the principle of, centrality via convergence.
The present worldwide financial meltdown creates utter astonishment for most, then again, it may be perceived as
opportunity by others. A recently voiced glib quip, "never let a catastrophe go to waste", is being taken as gospel by the
current Administration. If welling chaos begets opportunities for advantage, then 1st and 2nd world countries are ripe for
far-reaching political elixirs which never would have even been considered during recent times of prosperity and peace.
Thus cometh the 'Seasons of Change', ready or not! "Who let the dogs out?"
America and other Western countries are reeling in pain from market-decline and near collapse of major banking/lending
institutions. The 'magic fix' selected by America's political elite is: an attempt to spend our way out of gargantuan-debt,
borrowing 'stimulus' appropriations from the US Treasury, and fostering further growth of big-government. Strangely,
there is only a casual promise advanced by the current Administration for paying down the National Debt of 10-17 Trillion
(2009-11). America's spiraling national debt is becoming its Achilles' heel along with the falling away from God's
precepts, commandants and decrees. Both lead to a disastrous set of consequences, many of which will be irreversible.
Who's the Enemy?
Pogo once remarked, "we have seen the enemy, and it is us". A partisan/political nostrum for the current stagnation in
America's GNP and faltering GDP, increasing valuation-loss of dollar parity, and severe economic downturn is
displacement. Throughout recorded history a military-type stratagem has at times been espoused, The best way to rally
the boy's around the flagpole is to identify an external enemy, be it real or imagined.. In this immediate day and time,
America has many global unfriendlies and discerned enemies as well. Displacing blame for our collective woes is
becoming ubiquitous. Sooner, than later, these displacements will demand resolution. The current Administration believes
they have four-plus years, not!
Presently, America's government seemingly has a laissez-faire interest in the free marketplace. Increasing regulation of
critical commerce enterprises along with consolidated leverage held by small enclaves of powerbrokers are rapidly
ramping-up. These brokers are now having an unprecedented influence on this nation's rush towards the yawning
economic abyss, just over the near horizon.
Many wise-heads believe the current flurry of Congressional and Executive Branch patchwork of fixes enacted to right our
faltering Republic, are too little, too late. Further, to even the casual observer America is already tobogganing down a
slippery slope at reckless speed, only to be stopped by blunt force. Biggest question, "what will be that blunt force?"
There are numerous speculations, none of which is encouraging. Nationalizing core financial institutions is a desperate
intervention measure, as well as propping up mainline manufacturing conglomerates teetering on the brink of Ch.-11.
Dominos are aligning
America's potential economic/financial collapse would be a precursor to its absorption into a global confederation of
nations, called Unification gen conomique. The emerging globalization will encompass all trading currencies and
export/import commerce. Internet2 is the foremost U.S. advanced networking consortium and and is already in place to
manage the Brontobytes of information processing power that will be required for a multifaceted global digital economy.
1st and 2nd world economies are transfixed with broadband, satellite, and wireless advances operative today. They will
become the highway and conduits for all buying/selling/trading in a digital monetary universe.
Regrettably, we are witnessing many economic decisions being made, to a significant measure, for political reasons by a
clutch of individuals. Prayerfully, history will not have to characterize present political decision-makers as "fiddlers on the
roof", while the nation burns or drowns in red ink. If the unprecedented economic rescue measures fail to accomplish
their intended goals, they will be the last of such appropriation extravaganzas in the first half of the 21st C. in America.
Economics and religion are both undergoing systemic structural change e.g., powerful movement towards
quasi-ecumenism (commingling of various religious orders) and revaluation of solvent (creditworthy) national currencies.
The morphing ecumenism has universal aspirations while international banking and financial institutions are heading
towards unified (consolidated) debit and credit transaction monitoring systems. Endpoint will be a cashless digital
commerce with the EU taking the lead in implementation and a universal religious outreach, most likely from Rome.
Oddly, the EU Euro common currency seems to be working well, and holds its parity with the US dollar.
Progressive socialism is already increasing its swing (02/09) throughout much of America and has been established in the
EU almost since its inception. Further advances in democratic-socialism will evolve as a consequence of global attempts
at redistribution of wealth. The haves will have less; the have-nots will struggle with the status quo. "Change" is not just
coming; rather it is already operating in America's government systemic, as it is 'undoing' along with exercising highly
debatable stratagems for 'accountable/transparent' governance.
Who does one pray to; Darwin, Jehovah Yahweh, Yeshua Ha-Mashiah (Jesus, the Messiah), Allah, others?
Darwinism and Creationism are in a death struggle in the public square along with several major religious denominations
entering the Days of Laodicea (trust in their ability to "rule themselves"). Other sects in Christendom are willingly violating
scriptural canon while diving deep into isogesis (reading into scripture what they want to find) in an attempt to justify their
wayward practices and ceremonies. The apostasia of 2 Th 2:3 (falling away) has already commenced.
The Kingdom of God on earth is now beginning to be opposed by 'all non-believers' with that dichotomy growing daily.
Jewry still refuses to receive Christ Jesus as their Ha-Mashia, Islam is rapidly spreading along with Sharia Law, while
humanism/hedonism has overflowed its banks and is engulfing the secular world. When the endtime catastrophes begin to
increase in intensity and frequency, those praying e.g., to Darwin for rescue/deliverance, will hear a return of abject
silence and deafening emptiness.
Even in the face of the prophesized apostasia, hardcore (fundamental) Christianity remains the bellwether and canon for
bringing the Kingdom of God on earth into its sufficiency in number. This sufficiency is necessary for Christ to present
unto Himself His bride-in-waiting, the faithful church. We read in Eph 5:27, "That He (Christ) might present it to Himself
a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish." A
Church being without spot, wrinkle or blemish in order to be acceptable to the Bridegroom (Christ) there is some concern
that the faithful Christian Church may be smaller in number, on that day of translation (rapture), then many believe and
broadcast it to be.
The One who is the way, the truth, and the Life is Christ Jesus while all others are sandlot imposters. "The god of this
world (satan) [2 Cor. 4:4] hath blinded the minds of them which believe not" and will continue to do so until Christ Jesus
is exalted on King David's throne in Jerusalem. Until His appearing, we who belong to Him have the redeeming time to
give witness to His saving grace (Eph. 2:8). Praying to any other deity than the Triune Godhead (Father, Son & Holy
Spirit) is not only apostasia, but consorting with the underworld and all of its contrived vagaries.
The 2009 Doomsday Clock has been advanced to five minutes before midnight. "The Doomsday Clock conveys
how close humanity is to catastrophic destruction--the figurative midnight--and monitors the means humankind
could use to obliterate itself. First and foremost, these include nuclear weapons, but they also encompass
climate-changing technologies and new developments in the life sciences that could inflict irrevocable harm."(1)
Christ replied, "When evening comes, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,' and in the morning, 'Today it will
be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret
the signs of the times." Those unable to understand and discern the coalescing of endtime events will become spoils to the
enemy, casualties to the outworking of prophetic time, and victims of their own spiritual myopia. Truth and discernment
are set forth in God's written Word and without its wisdom and His revelation, one is unable to accurately interpret the
signs of the times!
The end (translation) of this earthly existence will come in the twinkling of an eye (1 Cor. 15:52) for those who are held in
the 'hollow of Christ's hand and covered by His righteousness'. Doomed days are eminent moments in time for the
"unbeliever", while the "believer" will transcend that epoch set of events called the Tribulation Period. If one believes in a
post-tribulation transcendent event, they have greatly misinterpreted 1 Cor. 15:52.
Dogs of War
As the dogs of war (Julius Caesar) are loosed (Ezek. 38 & 39) and sent forth to devour that which they find, the faithful
body-of-Christ will be as a brand plucked out of the fire (Zec. 3:2) and delivered from God's impending wrath (1 Th. 5:9).
The hedonistic and secular world, along with the demonic realm, are striving mightily against the Kingdom of God on
earth, and in due time will come face-to-face with Christ's wrath and judgments.
War in the 21st C. is most often viewed as consequence for failed diplomacy, opposing religious antagonisms, and dispute
over territorial imperatives. In the coming final days war will ostensibly be over geopolitical hegemonies (global zones),
unilateral control over precious natural resources (e.g., petrochemical/water), nuclear parity, satellite communications
superiority, and the eradication of Zion (Israel and Jewry). Today's political and religious leadership in Israel, steeped in
scriptural prophetic events, know well what is in their near-future and are making their decisions accordingly. Thus enter
The dogs of war will have the last bark until Christ comes to quell any further of mankind's self destructive and sinful
antics. Even 3rd world powers and nations are becoming nuclearized and posturing for the coming nuclear exchanges.
The book of Revelation is beginning to manifest its prophetic endtime events. The four horsemen (Apocalypse) are
saddled-up and ready to ride.
Futurists predicate their forecasting on that which they consider as preferable, possible, and probable. The fourth variable
in futuristic foretelling is often excluded or de-prioritized, i.e., wild cards. Mount.St Helen's eruption, 9/11, and the more
recent global financial meltdown are wild cards no one predicted with a high degree of statistical confidence.
Biblically, we are entering the time of the suddenlies where catastrophic-type events will occur without prior notice
bringing great destruction and chaos. Mankind will have its last hours to turn to God for their redemption and deliverance,
yet we know from scripture that rebellion against God will continue until Christ's 2nd Advent.
During the recent change of the national political guard, fifty-three percent-plus of the electorate was wooed and
hoodwinked by political hyperbole, consummate melodic rhetoric and promises for grand systemic change in America..
The 31st US President (Herbert Hoover) promised a "chicken in every pot, and a car in ever garage". He ran on a
platform of reform, taxation, liberal social ideology, yet was unable to stem the rising tide of excessive inflation during the
depression, as he promised. Sound familiar? Those that do not know nor profit from the errors of the past, are highly
likely to repeat them. (G. Santayana)
Economic stimulus appropriations are believed and intended to be financial mechanisms aimed at ameliorating, if not
reversing market meltdowns. The stimulus appropriations under the FDR administration laid the foundations for the
democratic-socialism emerging today, in full bloom. If further monolithic 'stimulus' appropriations are enacted, America
will drown "by fire hose", which is intended to quench the fires of inflation, increase GDP, and forcefully impact decline in
Emerson quipped, when skating on thin ice, safety lies in speed (American needs to get its skate blades sharpened and
waxed). The heralded elan and toughness broadcast by the current administration will in all likelihood sound very different
in twenty-four months as the ice surface thins out. Even with all of America's unparalleled survival skills, might, and
sheer grit, without a return to our founding taproot of "In God We Trust", we will be swept along with all of the other
quasi-religious and secularized nations.
Hope and Trust vs. Reality
America can still return to its foundations and Trust in Almighty God, however "Vegas money" is betting against it as is the
newly birthed social-progressive liberal establishment. At the risk of being redundant, Pogo was exceptionally insightful.
America will soon be faced with reaping a near-future harvest arising from the political fixative seeds, presently being
sown. Emergency political fruit, i.e., convenient and easily picked, most often produce sour and bitter wine. Some
economists define the massive "stimulus" fix as low-hanging grapes.
The winepress of the Lord has already been constructed and awaits its time, "Take your sharp sickle and gather the
clusters of grapes from the earth's vine, because its grapes are ripe. The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its
grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God's wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and
blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses' bridles ..."[Rev. 14:18-20]
Above and Beyond
Christ has made a way for His servants not to be appointed to the time of His wrath. The endtime winepress is for those
which oppose Him and remain rebellious to His saving Grace. A unified field theory of universal (global) government is a
coming contrivance melded by desperate mankind. We stand at the threshold of many a great deception, snake oil
nostrums, and an outworking of remaining prophetic scenarios. Moreover, the good news is Christ is the Open Door to
salvation, redemption and eternal life. If you have not already done so, do not hesitate to cross over the threshold of His
welcoming Saving Grace. Amen
