This is a letter to our friends –
One World Government
“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else, I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.” [Isaiah 45]
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” [St. Paul’s letter to the Philippians]
Lately my e-mail has had notes and queries about the international conspiracies. There are many in history as well as those active today. Some are “hyped up” to be larger than life. Others are 100% real. Human nature leads those addicted to power to dream big dreams. The ultimate power dream is “world-domination”.
As people look away from God, the danger of such conspiracies grows in their view. We hear, “It is important to know your enemy.” Some patriots make a detailed study of the conspiracy that has their attention. In order to “awaken us to the dangers” they seek ever more sensational examples to shock us into action.
Pause and consider with me – If you were God’s enemy, wouldn’t you want people to study what you are doing rather than what God is doing? Wouldn’t you be ready to introduce new things to study when the older ones grow stale? Wouldn’t you want attention focused upon evil rather than righteousness?
The next “Principles of American Government” online course begins tomorrow. I am often asked why we do not teach about these conspiracies. I respond. “Learning of them produces awe at the size of the problem, fear, frustration, anger, hopelessness.” It often produces misguided activism. Not very good goals for study!
Rather – When we learn of God’s hand in human history, the laws of nature and of nature’s God, and principles we can rely upon in making our day-to-day choices, the result is faith, fearlessness, hope, confidence. Much better goals for study!
As Isaiah prophesized, one day every knee shall bow. Some rebellious souls will be standing tall “on the inside” – BUT – when a nine foot angel with a flaming sword says to kneel, that knee will bow!
I choose to be among those who rejoice to bow to a loving God well in advance of that day.
