The move towards One World Government

Introduction

How can Christians share the Gospel in a Post-modern, post-Christian and post-national situation?  Undoubtedly globalisation is upon us.  Do we need to change the message as some suggest and be willing to embrace a new unifying religion for the sake of the planet? 

The global culture becomes more pagan, Western culture shakes off its Christian heritage and as Christians we become more marginalised in the public square.  This should not surprise us since the prophetic scriptures point to a coming new world order; a world political and religious system emerging at the end of the age just prior to the return of Jesus that is opposed to the purposes of God.

Whilst in this trend we focus primarily on the emerging political system we need to understand that in reality it is developing in tandem with the one world religious system and they will ultimately emerge as one entity under the control of the Antichrist figure.   

Globalisation

We stand on the threshold of a global village.  Postmodern, liberal, secular, religious and ideologically driven individuals and groups within the intelligentsia – those who regard themselves as the ruling elite, progressive, open-minded and intellectually and spiritually enlightened, lead and encourage the drive toward globalisation and a new world order with the ultimate aim of One World Government and One World Religion.  They believe that earthly, planetary utopia will be the result.

International bankers and financial institutions, secret societies/organisations, national and international organisations and foundations, multinational companies, non-governmental organisations (NGO's), collegiate fraternities, gentlemen’s clubs, think tanks, intelligence agencies, former key political leaders, wealthy oligarchs, New Age devotees, the apostate church etc., are already functioning as a relational shadow global government.  Real political and economic power no longer resides with publicly elected representatives, but with powerful individuals and entities exercising control from behind the scenes.

They control political power, international finance, international law, world trade, the media and military capability to further this single aim.  Increasingly, our lives are controlled by faceless international elites, organisations and bureaucrats who we didn't elect and who now set aside values and traditions which have served us well for generations – the independent nation-state, democracy and Judaeo-Christian values.

Antichrist's New World Order

The stage is being set for the eventual emergence of Satan’s Antichrist global government.  We believe he will become the dominant political, military and religious figure in the world in due course.  We are not suggesting that everyone involved in driving the new world order agenda is aware of this fact, although we would suggest that some are.  There are those with an openly Luciferian agenda - see also One World Religion.

Benign beginnings

Benign beginnings can often serve to hide the real and hidden agenda.  Woodrow Wilson and Winston Churchill both used the term 'new world order' to simply reflect the change in the balance of power and world political thinking following the first and second world war.  By organising human affairs they felt they could abolish the threat of war and bring lasting peace.  They saw an opportunity for global governance in the sense of new collective efforts to address worldwide problems beyond the capacity of individual nation states, while at the same time respecting the right of nations to self-determination. 

Ancient Babylon

The real beginnings of this movement lie elsewhere however, and we would suggest their roots go back as far as the Tower of Babel where man made his first Satanic attempt at global governance in defiance of God.  For the purpose of the article however we will start by discussing the origins of Freemasonry which is a major historical movement and catalyst in the implementation of the New World Order:

Origins of Freemasonry

The history of Freemasonry is the history of secret societies, which in turn is the history of organised occultism, particularly in the West.  Albert Pike, leading Freemason from 1859-1891, in his Freemasonry manual usually referred to as ‘Morals and Dogma’, traces the origins back to ancient Babylon.  He said:

By whatever name it was known in this or the other country, Masonry existed as it now exists, the same in sprit and at heart . . . before even the first colonies emigrated into Southern India, Persia, and Egypt, from the cradle of the human race . . . We reproduce the speculations of the Philosophers, the Kabbalists, the Mystagogues and the Gnostics.

Libraries of books on the origins of Freemasonry are housed in London, Iowa and Washington DC.  It seems that the history of the occult was documented by ancient priests, who passed it on by word of mouth, then later, on manuscripts.  The Greek and Roman philosophers may have been responsible for recording it, after which it was handed down via occult priests through the generations.

Broadly speaking, while Christianity was largely rejected in the Far East where pantheism is rife, it was more readily accepted in the West.  Thus occult priests were forced underground in order to keep their secrets and rituals alive.  The secret societies in the West have been purveyors of these, since they are a continuation of ancient occult priesthoods.

Gnosticism

Gnosticism , the most effective and widely accepted form of pantheism, caused havoc in the early church (much of Paul and John’s writings counter this heresy) and is having a popular renaissance today (see our article on the Emergent Church).  According to Albert Pike, Gnosticism was an offshoot of Kabbalah (see our article on Religion).  In his book he says:

The Kabbalah is the key of the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabbalists.

In essence, Kabbalah was a version of the ancient mysteries designed to deceive the Jews.  Gnosticism similarly sought to lead Christians into deception.  Together, they composed a kind of occult parallel to the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.  This is what Pike said of Gnosticism in his book:

The Gnostics derived their leading doctrines and ideas from Plato and Philo, the Zend-avesta and the Kabbalah, and the Sacred books of India and Egypt; and thus introduced into the bosom of Christianity the cosmological and theosophical speculations, which had formed the larger portion of the ancient religions of the Orient, joined to those of the Egyptian, Greek and Jewish doctrines, which the New-Platonists had equally adopted in the Occident.

Gnosticism took many forms but all were united in adoration of Satan and hatred for Jesus Christ.

Knights Templar

This order was established in Jerusalem in 1118 AD.  Their mission was to protect pilgrims en route to the Holy Land during the crusades.  Baldwin II, King of Jerusalem, gave them quarters in his palace, built on the site of Solomon’s Temple, hence the name, ‘Knights of the Temple.’  Pilgrims donated funds which the Knights looked after.  They established offices in every Christian country and gained wealth and favour from many European rulers.  The headquarters moved to Acre when Saladin took Jerusalem in 1187, then to Cyprus in 1291 when Acre fell to the Muslims.  By then they were so rich they had become the bankers of Europe and their watchword was to become wealthy in order to buy the world.

The Knights Templar were strongly influenced by the Gnostics and the Assassins (a ruthless Arabic military order).  Kah says they represented the first wide-scale attempt to organise and mobilise forces of occultism for the purpose of gaining control of the world.  Occult historian Edith Starr Miller summarises them thus:

Having embraced Gnosticism while in Palestine, and in touch with the sect of the Assassins, the Templar order degenerated, and some of its members, under the influence of that sect, were said to practise Phallicism or sex-worship and Satanism and to venerate ‘The Baphomet’, the idol of the Luciferians.  The crime of sodomy was a rite of Templar initiation.

While ostensibly ‘Christian,' they secretly worshipped the adversary they appeared to hate.  In the 1300’s many were martyred or incarcerated, and much of their wealth was confiscated, though their influence continued and they operated covertly from then on.

The Rosicrucians

The Knights Templar either founded or merged with an existing secret order in the early 1300’s, the Order of the Rose-Croix, or Rosicrucians.  Three hundred years later, in the 1600’s, the Rosicrucians lifted their heads ‘above the parapet’ to see how the public would respond to their occult philosophies.  To win public support they devised an allegory about a mythical character, Christian Rosenkreuz, which traced the history of the Templars.  Support was forthcoming, but they chose to wait another century before publicly enlisting initiates.

Birth of Freemasonry

Following the example of the Templars, European occultists decided to keep a benevolent public image while undertaking occult activities secretly.  They merged with and controlled the stone mason guilds of Europe, adopting much of the symbolism of the stone mason trade.  Operative masons were employed in the trade; speculative masons took over the guilds in order to progress their New World agenda.  It may well be that the stone mason trade was chosen for this because the Knights Templar were great builders of castles and monuments.

Within decades the operative masons had been taken over completely by the esoteric speculative masons, and in 1717 the world’s first Grand Lodge was established in London.  The Rosicrucians were engulfed in the structure and hierarchy of Freemasonry.  A century later, they had a good public reputation and it seemed a good time to put in place the hierarchy required to implement the Luciferian agenda of a New World Order.  For this, a new ultra-secret society from within Freemasonry was required.

The Illuminati

This secret Luciferian order was founded in 1776 in Bavaria by Adam Weishaupt, a Freemason.  In 1798, historian John Robison wrote of the Illuminati:

The express aim of the Order was to abolish Christianity, and overturn all civil government.

The order had Lodges in many European nations by 1782 and in the same year it was recognised amongst Europe’s occultists that it was the undisputed leader of the occult one-world movement.  It comprised an inner circle of illumined or high Freemasons.  Their mandate was to create a new world order by influencing the key decisions of Europe’s leaders through a process of infiltration.

Their agenda was divulged at the Masonic Conference of Wilhelmsbad in 1782, which drew together representatives of all the Secret Societies (Martinists, Freemasons and Illuminati).  It was also decided at that congress to move the headquarters of the Illuminati to Frankfurt, the stronghold of Rothschild and other international bankers.

Weishaupt, the founder of the Illuminati, forged a deal with the growing Rothschild banking empire, thus financing the Order’s ambitions.  Freemasons soon had the banking pre-eminence of their predecessors, the Templars, and the Illuminati grew, attracting royals, nobles and Jesuits across Europe.

Under cover of pursuing worldwide Christian unity, the new world order plan progressed very fast in the guise of the Illuminati.  After its exposure and official demise, the Grand Orient Lodge of France and the Masonic leaders of Italy and the US carried the burden.  The plans for a new world order were perpetuated by the Grand Orient and the already established illumined Masonic lodges

Freemasonry in the US

By the late 1700’s, Freemasonry and the Illuminati had a strong foothold in the US.  The first Supreme Council of Scottish Rite Freemasonry was established in Charlestown, South Carolina in 1801.  It was later relocated in Washington DC and is today the Mother Supreme Council of the World.  As the US grew as a world power, the focus of the New World Order proponents moved from Europe to America.

Masonically inspired religious cults flourished during the 19th century, for example, the Theosophical Society, Christian Science and Unitarianism, Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Mormon Church.  The two prominent early leaders of the Mormons, Joseph Smith and Brigham Young were both significant Freemasons.  More on these shortly.

The New Super-Rite

With Freemasonry making an impact in US politics and economics, and growing rapidly all the time, it was becoming unwieldy.  So a new ultra-secret governing body was established in 1870 – the first major restructure of illumined Freemasonry, devised by Albert Pike.

Pike, an orator and literary genius, wrote the ‘Scottish Rite Bible’ – ‘Morals and Dogmas of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.’  He linked with Mazzini, an Italian revolutionary leader and worldwide director of illumined Freemasonry to create ‘The New and Reformed Palladian Rite.'  Historian Edith Starr Miller, mentioned above, describes it as neo-Gnosticism:

Teaching that the divinity is dual and that Lucifer is the equal of Adonay (Occult Theocrasy)

The centres for this new super-rite were located in Charlestown, Rome and Berlin.  Pike and Mazzini also established four Grand Central Directories in order to accumulate material crucial to political and propaganda efforts.  These were located in North America (Washington), South America (Montevideo), Europe (Naples) and Oceania (Calcutta).

For a fuller understanding of the ancient roots of Freemasonry and secret societies and how they have impacted on the new world order see our article on Freemasonry.

The Federal Reserve System

The Rothschild family name appears again when in 1913 the US Government devolved monitory control to a number of international bankers including Rothschild - Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin; Lazard Brothers Banks of Paris; Israel Moses Seif Bankers of New York; Kuhn, Loeb Bank of New York; Chase Manhattan Bank of New York; and Goldman, Sachs Bank of New York.  The Federal Reserve System was created and tasked with responsibility to maintain employment, keep prices stable and keep interest rates at a moderate level by regulating monetary policy.  Components of the Federal Reserve System also supervise banks, provide financial services and conduct research into the US economy and other economies.

Unknown to many, the Federal Reserve is a privately owned organisation and driven by a vision for one world government.  It's monetary policy decisions do not have to be approved by the President or anyone else in the executive or legislative branches of government.  Until a couple of decades ago, the names of the owners were kept a closely-guarded secret. 

Freemasonry and the Rothschild family

One doesn't have to look too deeply to understand why this might have been the case.  The Rothschilds have been linked with Freemasonry since the 1700’s.  From influential yet small beginnings in Germany, the link with secret societies enabled them to expand their banking expertise into much of Europe.  Freemasonry provided the international and political contacts they needed and they in turn provided finance for the Freemasonry vision of a new world order.

By the 19th century, Rothschild was the dominant banking family in Europe and soon started financing American industrialists.  Their primary link was through the Warburgs of Germany who were partners in Kuhn, Loeb & Co, in New York.  Thus Rothschild and the masonic influence gained a foothold in the administration of the US; interestingly Paul Warburg was the first chairman of the Federal Reserve Board (see below).

The Rockefellers

Rothschild finance backed the Rockefeller Standard Oil dynasty, the Carnegie steel empire and the Harriman railroad system.  The Rockefellers intermarried with the Carnegies and later financed many US capitalists through Chase Manhattan and Citibank.  By the mid 20th century many of the wealthiest families in the US were related to the Rockefellers and much of America’s wealth, therefore, can be traced to the old money of Europe and to Freemasonry.

Over the years, various high-ranking individuals have attempted to expose the work of the Federal Reserve System and the drive of the Rockefellers and their allies to create one world government under their control (see the Reece Committee below).

Federal Reserve System initiatives

With the Rockefellers holding controlling interests in the Federal Reserve it has considerable influence over global activity.  The investigative Reece Committee back in the 1950’s discovered that vast profits from public US bank loans were ploughed into Federal Reserve initiatives and that the greatest influence of the Rockefeller-Carnegie-Ford foundations was in the areas of public education, international affairs and the sciences.  Recipients of vast grants included, for example, the National Education Association, the John Dewey Society, the United Nations Association and the Council on Foreign Relations (see below). 

The Reece Committee

By probing into the Rockefeller-based initiatives, the Reece Committee discovered that the true agenda of the recipients was preparation for a one-world society.  With in-roads into all areas of life, nevertheless the area of foreign affairs was the most affected.  Rene Wormser of the Reece Committee stated that the influence of the major foundations had ‘reached far into government, into the policy-making circles of Congress and into the State Department.’  He said:

This has been effected through the pressure of public opinion, mobilised by the instruments of the foundations; through the promotion of foundation-favourites as teachers and experts in foreign affairs; through a domination of the learned journals in international affairs; through frequent appointment of foundation officials to State Department jobs (Wormser: Foundations – Their Power and Influence (1958)).

Cecil Rhodes

Wormser also discovered that US foreign policy was shaped by an alliance with the Cecil Rhodes institution.  Rhodes, the famous British industrialist after whom Rhodesia was named, was a close ally of Rothschild and European Freemasonry who made his fortune in the diamond mines of South Africa.  He used his immense wealth to promote the cause of world government.

After his death, the Rhodes Scholarship Programme continued the global agenda and Rhodes scholars have, and still do, hold many highly influential posts in education, government and media in the US.  At the time of the Reece Committee investigations, the president of the Rockefeller Foundation, the director of the Guggenheim Foundation and the former president of the Carnegie Foundation were all Rhodes scholars.

Edward House - the League of Nations and the Council on Foreign Relations

Edward House was an Illuminist agent committed to the one-world interests of the Rothschild-Warburg-Rockefeller cartel, serving as their point man in the White House, particularly in the areas of banking and foreign affairs.  He persuaded Woodrow Wilson to ratify the Federal Reserve Act just before the outbreak of World War One.  He undertook secret missions to Europe as Wilson’s chief foreign diplomat and was responsible for involving the US in the war.

He strongly influenced the forming of the League of Nations which was funded with Rockefeller money.  This was a strategic plank in the world government agenda.  His plans were temporarily halted when the US voted against joining the League of Nations, but the globalist agenda was secured by the formation of the Council on Foreign Relations, another House initiative.

The Council on Foreign Relations(CFR) and the Royal Institute of International Affairs

At the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, to defend the foreign interests of the US and Britain, it was decided to establish an advisory council to their respective governments on international affairs.  In the end, two separate but co-operating organisations were formed; the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, and the sister organisation, the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London.  This was also known as the Chatham House Study Group.  A subsidiary, the Institute of Pacific Relations, was to address Far Eastern affairs.  All the founders of these organisations were approved by Baron Edmond de Rothschild of France, who dominated the 1919 Peace Conference.

Finances for the CFR came from the same financiers as were involved in the Federal Reserve.  These included, amongst others, JP Morgan, Paul Warburg and John D Rockefeller.  Over the years, CFR Directors have included, amongst others, David Rockefeller (1949-85), George H W Bush (1977-79) and Henry Kissinger (1977-81).  David Rockefeller was also chairman of Chase Manhattan Bank during the same period.  Dan Smoot, one of the first researchers into the CFR summarised its purpose:

The ultimate aim of the CFR . . . is . . . to create a one world socialist system and make the US an official part of it (Phoebe Courtney, the CFR Part II).

As far back as 1950, James Warburg said to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that:

We shall have world government whether or not you like it – by conquest or consent (Allen: The Rockefeller File).

New World Order strategy

Surrounding key advisory positions in US government with CFR members was the strategy for implementing the new world order policy.  They also targeted the fields of education, media, military and banking with the aim of having CFR members as leaders in these arenas.  Far from simply an idealistic pipe-dream, by the outbreak of the Second World War the CFR had a strong foothold in both the Democratic and Republican parties in the US.  By this time, through Roosevelt, the CFR had control of the State Department and foreign policy.  Rene Wormser of the Reece Committee said:

(The) organisation became virtually an agency of the government when WW2 broke out.  The Rockefeller Foundation has started and financed certain studies known as the War and Peace Studies, manned largely by associates of the Council; the State Department, in due course, took these Studies over, retaining the major personnel which the CFR had supplied.

The term ‘New World Order’ has been more widely used since the end of the Cold War – deliberately so, in order for people to become conditioned to the term and less threatened by it.  In fact, US citizens are very familiar with it since ‘The New Order of the Ages’ has been written in Latin on the reverse of the US dollar bill since the time of Freemason Franklin Roosevelt, who sanctioned it along with the Masonic symbols of the pyramid and the all-seeing eye of Osiris.

The United Nations (UN)

The Council on Foreign Relations was largely responsible for establishing the United Nations; ten of the fourteen Committee members belonged to the CFR.  There was no doubt this time that the United Nations would definitely include the US.  To clinch it, the UN was housed in the US, on land donated by John D Rockefeller Jnr.  This was part of the conditioning of the American people so they would be open to the new world order.  With the UN on American soil, and accepted by them as a good thing, the first part of the strategy was complete.  The UN adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

The UN was a major achievement in the CFR agenda, but it was clearly apparent that they could not implement a totally new world order in one step; it would take several.  So they delegated aspects of the task to different groups.  We’ll look at three of these groups in turn. 

The Bilderberg Group, or Bilderbergers

Firstly, the Bilderbergers.  This group, named after the hotel in Holland where they first met in 1954, consists of around 100 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) members.  The leadership are CFR members so it may accurately be called a sister organisation to the CFR.  It comprises financial, political and military leaders from every key nation and meets in secret.  The express purpose of this group was to regionalise Europe – a plank in the strategy of the sponsors, Rockefeller, Ford and others.  Just about every US Bilderberger was or is a member of the CFR.  The Common Market was a product of this group, as was the European Economic Community and, since Maastricht in 1992, so was the political union - the European Union (EU).

Well-known Bilderbergers include, amongst others, David and Nelson Rockefeller, Thomas Hughes of the Carnegie Endowment, Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, Robert McNamara the former president of the World Bank, George Ball the former director of Lehman Brothers, Edmond de Rothschild, Giscard d’Estaing and Sir Eric Roll the chairman of Warburg & Co, etc.

The Club of Rome (COR)

Secondly, the Club of Rome.  This comprises a small group of scientists, educators, economists, humanists, industrialists and high ranking civil servants, including members of the Rockefeller family and CFR members.  The Club of Rome is a global think tank founded to deal with a variety of international political issues.  It began in 1968 when Aurelio Peccei, an Italian industrialist with close ties to the Olivetti Corporation and Fiat, invited them to meet with the remit of overseeing the regionalisation and unification of the entire world.  Thus their remit is on a more global level than that of the Bilderbergers.  The Club of Rome strategy has been to divide the world into ten political/economic regions, referred to as ‘kingdoms.' 

After a year, a book was published by COR members Mesarovic and Pestel called ‘Mankind at the Turning Point.’  Because it was for public consumption, it interestingly omitted the word ‘kingdoms’ when describing the ten regions.  More concerning, however, is the occult spirituality driving the COR.  Peccei refers to his pantheistic/New Age beliefs in the book, linking his spirituality with that of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, who greatly influenced the New Age Movement - see One World Religion.

Peccei remarks at the end of the book:

Philosophers have, from ancient times, stressed the unity of existence and the interconnection of all the elements of nature, man and thought.  However, their teaching has seldom been reflected in political or social behaviour.

Developing politically global, as opposed to national, citizens is the strategy.  The COB’s first publication, ‘The Limits of Growth’ (1972) includes this quote:

The COB . . . will encourage the creation of a world forum where statesmen, policy-makers, and scientists can discuss the dangers and hopes for the future global system without the constraints of formal intergovernmental negotiation.

Mesarovic and Pestel also remark:

It must become part of the consciousness of every individual that ‘the basic unit of human cooperation and hence survival is moving from the national to the global level.

The Trilateral Commission (TC)

The third group came about when the CFR began to be exposed in the 1950’s and 1960’s.  US citizens began to realise that much of their industry was in the control of a few key establishments.  To diffuse the situation and some would say cover their tracks, globalists (the Rockefellers et al) quickly funnelled US and European capital into Japanese and Arab oil enterprises who would then be the scapegoats if the US hit hard times.

Almost overnight, at the expense of the US car industry the Japanese car industry was working flat out to supply the US.  Meanwhile, the OPEC oil embargo in 1973  provided grist for the globalist’s mill – the forced redistribution of the world’s wealth was the reason given for embracing a new era of ‘global economic interdependence.'

To progress this, David Rockefeller formed the Trilateral Commission in 1973.  He was chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations at the time.  The Trilateral Commission  - a private organisation established to foster closer co-operation between the United States, Europe and Japan.

This Commission had the vision of intricately intertwining the economies of member nations so in effect a world government operated.  Thus the Trilateral Commission was a third plank in the global agenda alongside the Bilderbergers and the Club of Rome.  Rockefeller worked closely with Zbigniew Brzezinski, who became the first director of the Trilateral Commission (1973-1976).  He introduced the idea of a new international monetary system, in preparation for a global taxation system.  He drew heavily on Marxist ideals and the spirituality of Teilhard de Chardin. 

The Commission was, in effect, a newer version of the Council on Foreign Relations, with the same personnel and resources; funding this time came primarily from The Ford Foundation.  The key development however was that whilst based in New York, it was not restricted to US members.  It drew on leaders of the world’s three economic superpowers – North America, Western Europe and Japan (hence the name ‘trilateral’).  Interestingly, these were three of the Club of Rome's ten ‘kingdoms.'

US Government

During the second half of the 20th century, key governmental positions in the US were occupied by members or former members of the CFR and/or the TC.  There is little to suggest it is not still the same today.  Membership, it seems, gives candidates the right to run for key positions, so both Republicans and Democrats are united in their membership of these societies.  Many are also Freemasons or members of ‘Skull and Bones’, another secret society based at Yale University.  Kah says:

It is not unfair to say that the CFR and the TC run our (US) government.  In fact, any statement to the contrary . . .  would be inaccurate . . . Membership in these organisations has become a prerequisite of running for the presidency or for being appointed to a significant position in the executive branch.  This represents a complete breakdown in our political process.

Media

The CFR/TC network goes way beyond government positions.  Walter Cronkite, a former CBS News anchor-man once said:

The Rockefellers are the epitome of the nation’s permanent Establishment; governments change, economics fluctuate, foreign alliances shift – the Rockefellers prevail.

He was right!  The largest media networks in the US are dominated by CFR/TC members, as are many of the major US media personalities.  In addition, the TV networks are influenced by the Rockefeller’s family bank.  Not surprisingly, some of the major newspapers and magazines, book publishers, advertisers, etc, are also dominated by CFR/TC members.  The book publishers tend to be those which produce textbooks, used to ‘educate’ the public.

Public education

Education is the primary means for getting the masses to imbibe a new worldview.  Knowing this, from the beginning of the 20th century the Rockefellers sought to influence education.  Gary Allen says this, in ‘The Rockefeller File’ (1976):

The foundations (principally Carnegie and Rockefeller) stimulated two-thirds of the total endowment funding of all institutions of higher learning in America during the first third of this century.  During this period the Carnegie-Rockefeller complex supplied 20% of the total income of colleges and universities and became in fact, if not in name, a sort of US Ministry of Education.

The Rockefellers also substantially funded John Dewey, the confirmed atheist and ‘father of progressive education.'  He taught 4 of the 5 Rockefeller brothers, including David and Nelson but spent most of his life teaching teachers while he was Head of Department at Columbia University.  The Reece Commission, mentioned above, soon discovered that Rockefeller money and Dewey educational philosophy were responsible for:

 . . . nurturing some of the most ardent academic advocates of upsetting the American system and supplanting it with a Socialist state.

The chief US education lobby, the National Education Association (NEA) was sponsored by Rockefeller-Carnegie finance, and by 1934 had adopted his philosophy of humanism, socialism and globalism and was actively sowing these in the classroom.  Rockefeller's money was also responsible for creating textbooks which undermined patriotism and free enterprise and for producing study documents for educators promoting a global view of society.

The role of the US

With so much of the global agenda activity being based in the US, it’s not surprising that there is a specific role for America in the global plan.  The symbols on the US dollar bill should reinforce that view.  It would seem that America – a long-term democracy more likely to be trusted than a dictatorship - was chosen by the powers we’ve examined as the place for laying the groundwork for the world government and then for leading humanity into it.  Back in 1991 President G W Bush remarked in his State of Union speech:

What is at stake is more than one small country; it is a big idea: a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind.

Sadly, the America of today is a stronghold of materialism, corruption and godlessness – the perfect environment for secret societies and ungodly agenda to flourish.  If or when the new world order is implemented it will be interesting to see where the seat of power for the world government is situated.  Since many of the organisations we’ve looked at have their headquarters in New York there is a strong case for believing it will be in that city.  However, the secret hierarchy of Europe (Freemasonry, etc) may have a European location in mind, and if so they have the power to implement their plan. 

In light of 9/11 and the more recent banking crises, it’s interesting to note that if New York was not the designated seat of power, it might need to be destroyed, either physically or economically.  Certainly the powers are capable of such a thing, if God allows it to happen.

New Age Mysticism

For more on this, see our articles on One World Religion, Evil: progression and limitation, and the Emergent Church.  Put briefly, the religion of the New Age is pantheism – the belief that God is in the sum total of all that exists.  Kah explains:

According to pantheism there is no personal God, instead their concept of God consists of what they refer to as a god-force (or life-force).  They teach that this energy, or god-force, flows through all living things – plants, animals and human beings.  Since this god-force flows through all of us, they rationalise, we must therefore be gods, or, at least, part of God.

The god-force pantheists believe in can only operate completely when there is global unity, so they would not have a problem with the idea of a one world government.  Once that came about, they believe humanity would then take a ‘quantum leap’ to a higher level of existence.  The new enlightenment, or a New World Order, would then be born. 

Pantheism has received much wider acceptance in the West than Satanism, although ultimately they’re the same thing, because pantheism doesn't have obviously evil overtones.  Today, with the glut of psychic fairs, alternative health clinics and the high media endorsement of anything mystical, few people even question whether mysticism and occultism have anything in common.  Yet altered states of consciousness, a unifying factor among many different New Age beliefs and practices, basically opens up the spirit to demonic influences and invites them in - see Emergent Church.

The spread of pantheism

From his research into pantheism, Kah says:

It was interesting to discover that all of the ancient mystery religions from the Bible era were pantheistic.  Pantheism originated in the ancient city of Babylon in Mesopotamia and from there spread rapidly in all directions to cover the face of the earth.  Hinduism is one of the off-shoots of the original Babylonian pantheism (via the Aryans of ancient Persia).  And Buddhism is an off-shoot of Hinduism.  All of the Eastern religions of today are ultimately traceable to ancient Babylon, where the post-flood rebellion against God began. 

Pantheistic mystery religions developed their own distinctives depending on the societies where they took hold, but they concurred over the importance of an occult priesthood which ruled the territory in association with an appointed priest.  All priests had to go through a series of secret rituals and initiations.  When they reached the inner circle or highest level of the priesthood they gained knowledge of the secret doctrine, which always included worship of Lucifer (sometimes referred to as the God of Hades or God of the Underworld).  Altered states of consciousness gave the priests access to messages from Satan or other divine messengers, and these messages were kept alive by secret societies for millennia.

New Age spirituality in the West

Over the last couple of generations, the kind of techniques formerly used only within secret societies, have become popular in the West.  Through occult meditation and altered states of consciousness, unwitting as well as knowledgeable hosts have had occult experiences which are part of Satan’s strategy for driving the New World Order.  The number of practitioners who come into contact with demonic spirits in the course of meditation is probably much higher than we realise.  Sadly, many people who are passionately concerned about the environment, holistic health, world peace, yoga and other forms of meditation, TM, etc have become embroiled on the fringes of the New Age movement without realising the dangers inherent within it.

The Theosophical Society (TS)

Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey are the two names at the forefront of the Theosophical Society, which was a prime mover in the conditioning of people to accept the New World Order.  They used books and publications to spread the vision, some of which became best sellers.  The sinister agenda is illustrated by the fact that Hitler was strongly influenced by TS writings.  The Lucis Trust, Alice Bailey’s brainchild, did much to sponsor the one world movement, through various initiatives including the Arcane Schools (preparing candidates for high level service in the New Age movement), the Triangles (meditation groups) and World Goodwill (distributing New Age literature world wide).

Women in Masonry

Contrary to popular opinion, Freemasonry is not confined exclusively to men.  The Grand Orient Lodge in France admitted women and from 1893 onwards the French Lodge, now known as ‘The Great X Symbolic Lodge of France’ or ‘Lodge of Human Rights’ started accepting women too.  This was the beginning of what is known as Co-Masonry or adoptive Masonry.  There are hundreds of affiliated lodges in Europe and the Americas. 

Hence, Theosophical Society founder, Helena Blavatsky, was a Freemason, as were her successors, Annie Besant and Alice Bailey.  Cardinal Rodriguez, archbishop of Chile, who researched Freemasonry extensively, noted in his book, ‘The Mystery of Freemasonry Unveiled’:

. . . the theosophical doctrines on the nature of God and the soul and the relationship between God and the soul, are the same doctrines as taught in Masonry.  It is enough to read the books dealing with the history of Theosophy to see that each theosophical centre is founded, almost without doubt by members of the Lodge.

The link between Freemasonry, theosophy and the New Age movement is therefore clear.

The World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA)

Founded in 1959 in Colorado, this association has assembled a Provisional World Parliament, which has convened several meetings over the years pushing the New World Order and has adopted a number of World Legislative Acts.  By the end of the 1980’s they had drafted a world constitution and several national parliaments and governments had already ratified it, since the members were part of these groups.

The strategy was, and is, to keep their plans and activities as quiet as possible and restricted to as few as possible until, when the groundwork is in place, the WCPA and the New Age network can rush to implementation before any opposition has a chance to get in the way.  To protect themselves, they have sought to have their world constitution protected under the US Constitution – the very document it is out to replace.

The WCPA plan reflects the COR in certain respects.  For example, it includes a ten region world government, it proposes a new international monetary system (the New World Economic Order), and it is using the environment as the key reason why a global government is required.

The Provisional World Parliament was addressed by several ‘spiritual leaders’ from the Far East and other religious leaders known to be members of the CFR.  They also have an official ‘Spiritual Liaison.'  The spiritual agenda is an intrinsic part of the whole WCPA set up.

Networks and Philip Isely

WCPA’s original director, Philip Isely, is also a member of World Union, a strong supporting organisation of WCPA.  Indeed, several prominent leaders in WCPA have strategic roles in World Union as well.  Many are part of the CFR and the TC. 

World Union joined with World Goodwill in 1961.  World Goodwill was a spin-off of the Lucis Trust.  The Lucis Trust, an offshoot of the Theosophical Society has access to high levels of Freemasonry.  It should not come as a surprise that many key Lucis Trust members were involved in CFR and the TC as well.

Philip Isely’s name is connected with at least 20 other organisations which push the global agenda, such as Amnesty International, Friends of the Earth, Planetary Citizens, etc.  The greatest number of connections with the WCPA however comes from the World Future Society, of which Isely is a member.  This latter society is where the political, economic and spiritual aspects of the one-world government come together.

World Council of Churches (WCC)

Another interconnection is the World Council of Churches (WCC).  Their president in 1975 was also an honorary sponsor of the Provisional World Parliament.  The connection exposes the one world agenda of the WCC.

The Soviet Union

The Soviet Union has been involved in the occult plans for a new world order from its inception.  Karl Marx joined a branch of the Illuminati called League of the Just in 1847.  Mazzini was a associate of his and influenced Marx in the way he steered the Socialist Labour movement.  By 1862 Marx was living in London and became involved with the Working Men’s Association which was seeking better conditions for the working class.  At the inauguration of the Internationale in 1864 the committee consisted of high-ranking Freemasons and Marx’s name was among them.  He aligned himself with Wolff, Mazzini’s personal secretary, endorsing all his recommendations.  E E Friboug, in his book about the French Internationale, ‘L’Assocation Internationale Des Travaillers’ (1871) said:

The Internationale everywhere found support in Freemasonry.

The movement spread across Europe to Russia, where it took root, assisted by the existing Russian Lodges, Trotsky, Lenin and international financiers.  Communism was a tool for applying the New World Order.

For the world to accept the new world order, it had to be convinced that nationalism didn’t work.  The world had to believe that nations were the cause of war and world peace was only possible if nations were eliminated.  To prove it, wars in every part of the world had to be sparked, along with terrorism and other acts of aggression.  During the 20th century, the Soviet Union was key in perpetrating or playing a part in wars all over the globe.  The desire for world peace is high on the political agenda today, and it’s not unthinkable that if an international war broke out on an unprecedented scale, people would readily submit nationhood to a higher authority in the interests of world peace.  A merger between the Soviet Union and the US could be part of the strategy, as the Reece Commission discovered.

Other developments

Today the globalist strategy can be seen in the founding of numerous national, regional and international organisations such as the World Health Organisation, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, the International Criminal Court, etc.  Although in one sense the new world order is being implemented gradually, the developing global village together with the explosion in technology, information, mass-media and digital communication accelerates its development.

The United Nations and liberalism

Left-wing liberal progressives have generally welcomed these new international organisations and regimes, but would argue that they don’t go far enough.  They see the United Nations as a forum for discussion and co-ordination between sovereign governments without being fully empowered to achieve what they see as the real aim - one world government.

Nevertheless, the UN is now at the very heart of the drive towards global governance.  Many are calling for a renewed role for the UN.  In the 1990's the then General Secretary Kofi Annan appointed Maurice Strong to reorganise the UN and in 1998 he published a document entitled: 'Renewing the United Nations: A Programme for Reform.'  It is a step by step programme to implement many of the recommendations advanced in an earlier report entitled: 'Our Global Neighbourhood.'

Dr Peter Jones in his book: ' Capturing the Pagan Mind,' says: 'Other major UN power grabs include plans for the disarmament of all sovereign states, a UN police force and standing army, a common world currency and economic system, world education, a global taxation system . . . '

In his September 1990 'Towards a New World Order' speech President George H W Bush said:

‘Until now, the world we've known has been a world divided - a world of barbed wire and concrete block, conflict and cold war.  Now, we can see a new world coming into view.  A world in which there is the very real prospect of a new world order.  In the words of Winston Churchill, a ‘world order’ in which ‘the principles of justice and fair play ... protect the weak against the strong ...’  A world where the United Nations, freed from cold war stalemate, is poised to fulfil the historic vision of its founders.  A world in which freedom and respect for human rights find a home among all nations.’

The UN called the Millennium Summit in 2000 to discuss a complete reorganisation of the UN.  This brought together heads of state and one-world elitist visionaries.  The UN organises hundreds of conferences and meetings every year across the world which facilitates a growing web of developing relationships and provides opportunity for the promotion of the new world order.

In a preamble to the United Nations' Earth Charter it says:

We stand at a critical moment in Earth's history, a time when humanity must choose its future . . . we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny.  We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice and a culture of peace.  

Strobe Talbott, who defined and executed the President Clinton's administration's foreign policy from 1992 to 2000 said:

'In the next century, America will not exist in its current form.  All states will recognise a single global authority.'

A proposed new addition to the UN is a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly (UNPA) that would allow for participation of member nations' legislators and, eventually, direct elections to a UN parliament.  The Campaign for the Establishment of a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly was formed in 2007 to co-ordinate pro-UNPA efforts.

Subvert national sovereignty and representative government

All of the above key players seek by various means to subvert national sovereignty, representative government and to exert power and influence through what have been described as ‘global gates’ – the UN, EU, WTO, NATO, IMF, G8, G20, International Criminal Court, World Bank, etc.  In and through these forums, leaders, ministers and government officials from individual nations make decisions that ultimately determine the destiny of all nations.

Global crisis and war on terror

Every new global crisis and the continuing war on terror are seen as reasons to call for global solutions and the new world order.  The global elite believe that unity will come from crisis and so every crisis in their eyes is positive whether it be environmental, poverty, economic, terrorism, overpopulation, political instability, war or the nuclear threat.  UN agencies monitor and announce each new threat as it occurs, whilst calling for global measures to combat each one.

A present reality  

Whilst there is currently no actual global functional military, executive, legislature, judiciary or constitution with jurisdiction over the entire planet, nevertheless globalisation and the new world order is already to some degree already a political, economic, religious, social, legal, environmental and physical fact of life.  Individual nation-states are increasingly ruled by the influential elite of these emerging private, international and global bodies.

Here in the UK

In the last 30 years more and more of the UK's national sovereignty has been yielded to the EU and UN.  Our individual and national rights and freedoms are being systematically destroyed in the name of globalisation, unity, peace and security.  The global elite believe that in centralising power they can protect the world from poverty and genocide resulting from the proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.

Babylon and Rome

As good as the motivation of some might be, once again mankind can be seen to be acting independently of God in seeking to build a city and to make a name for himself.  Perhaps what we see taking place today is more than a backward glance to the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9).

Today's Western culture has rightly been compared to that of biblical Rome.  The birth of Christianity coincided with the world dominance of the Roman Empire.  Dr Peter Jones says: 'If ancient Rome is the biblical paradigm for the coming planetary empire, then the Bible hardly leaves us in the dark as to what the future holds.  In understanding Rome, we can understand the essential nature of the global village.' 

Rome thrived on bread, circuses and totalitarian control - excessive wealth, entertainment and the police state - but ultimately collapsed from moral failure.  Rome carried everything to an extreme - feminism, all forms of sexuality, adultery, divorce, abortion, exercise and human sacrifice for sport.

Rome was the home of all things spiritual - a meeting place of the gods.  The worship of the great mother goddess and the power of the occult.  There were few atheists in Rome and politicians were pagan priests.  Rome embraced the mysticism of the East.  The mystery religions flourished, particularly the worship of Isis.  Syncretism and pantheism thrived.  Religious tolerance was an accepted way of life apart that is from when it came to Christianity.  Sounds familiar? 

Rome had developed the largest free trade market the world had ever known with the help of the Greek language and culture - think of what is achievable today through means of the English language.  Travel and communication had mushroomed under Roman rule - think of the Internet and satellite technology today.  Rome thought and acted globally and we would suggest was a microcosm of what we see taking place today in our world.

One world religion

To assure its success the new world order requires a one world religion and rest assured its proponents are already at work.  Globalist theologian Lloyd Geering says: 'If the global society emerges, it will require humanity to develop a new consciousness and a new form of spirituality.'  As radical theologians were declaring the death of God and the Bible in the 60's others were announcing the return of the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece and Rome.

Today's theologians declare that religion is not in decline by simply in a process of reformation.  As in ancient Rome social and religious forces have joined together - Western capitalism with Eastern meditation.  With the rebirth of pagan goddess worship and Christianity in decline, or at least being re-imagined, we are, we would suggest, set to see the great apostasy spoken about by Jesus (Matt 24:12).  

Our individual and national rights and freedoms are being systematically destroyed in the name of globalisation, unity, peace and security
