Why Globalism?

Arno Froese

“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices” (2 Corinthians 2:11).

In simple terms, this tells us that Satan has a plan, and we are aware of what he is doing. The CEV reads, “I have done this to keep Satan from getting the better of us. We all know what goes on in his mind.” What is Satan’s plan; what is on his mind? “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isaiah 14:14). This statement was recorded over 2,700 years ago by the prophet Isaiah. 

His Devices
How does he plan to do it? What is his strategy, or as the KJV reads, “his devices”? That, friends, is what the Bible is all about: in brief, the deceiver and God’s plan of salvation.

We may also ask, why has Satan not implemented his plans long ago? There are a number of reasons, but two should be mentioned: transportation and communication. 

For example, for Satan to fulfill Revelation 13 was impossible until these days. Why? Global unity had to be established first: “and all the world wondered after the beast” (Revelation 13:3b); or verse 8a: “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him.” This clearly indicates that globalism must be in place for Satan and his superman, Antichrist, to implement the final great deception.

What Is Globalism?
Dictionary.com defines globalism as “the attitude or policy of placing the interests of the entire world above those of individual nations.”

As an example, Country A produces excellent potatoes but inferior tomatoes; Country B produces excellent tomatoes but inferior potatoes. What to do? Country A imports tomatoes, and Country B imports potatoes. That is the fundamental principle of capitalism. But there is a problem. What if Country A has geopolitical problems with Country B, and vice-versa? Thus, action is required: Country A must support its inferior tomato farmers, and Country B must support its inferior potato farmers. In case of conflict, the farmers must be protected—all paid by the government. Today, governments the world over subsidize the loser.

In today’s world, even the winners—the industrial and financial juggernauts—depend on government hand- outs. For example, AgricultureFairness Alliance.org states: “In the U.S., subsidies to the agriculture sector typically run around $20 billion per year. In 2020, bailouts rocketed that number to over $50 billion.” GoodJobsFirst.org lists the subsidy value for four major industries:

1. Utilities and power generation
2. Motor vehicles
3. Electrical and electronics
4. Oil and gas

This may surprise many of us, who believe that these giant corporations are operating responsibly in the capitalist, free-market system; not so. Welcome to globalism.

Two of the aeronautic industry giants, Boeing and Airbus—which had been suing each other for 17 years—finally agreed that both sides will remove certain tax subsidies.

Ancient Globalism
Babylon is listed first. Daniel declares: “Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold” (Daniel 2:37-38). He then allows just a few words for the second and third globalist nations, but spends most of his time describing the fourth and final globalist entity—Rome—which expanded to Europe, and by the various European colonial nations, literally conquered the entire world. 

The most successful country was Great Britain, whose empire spanned the globe and who declared, “The sun never sets on the British Empire.” To accommodate the many nations that became British colonies or subject to the Crown, the British Commonwealth was established on 11 December 1931. Britain became rich and powerful. But after the Second World War, many British colonies became independent, not wanting to follow the Crown’s dictates. 

What next? The United States was the succeeding power to take over a degree of world dominion. Some historians claim that US dominance lasted a century.

Problem: while the US insisted on American-style capitalism, the world at large did not always agree. In reality, America practiced both socialism and communism, and most saw through this hypocrisy. 

Now we increasingly read, “The End of the West” … “Western Influence Declining” … “Will New Geopolitical Realities Replace the West?” With Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the power blocs of both the East and the West have solidified more than ever before.

What Next? 
The so-called Eastern Bloc includes much of Asia and Africa, along with Brazil. The BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) comprise 41.2% of the world’s population, with 3.2 billion people.

However, there are a number of countries that have not aligned themselves with either the West or the East. Bscholarly
.com lists the 10 most isolated countries in the world, starting with North Korea at number one, followed by Somalia and Myanmar. Rounding out the top 5 are Madagascar in fourth place, and Burundi fifth. When it comes to prosperity, freedom, and security, they mostly rank very low. They are missing out on the success of globalism.

Countries with a multitude of diplomatic relations the world over, are listed as the most progressive, richest, freest, and securest nations on earth. For example, Switzerland, with a population under 10 million, operates consulates and embassies in 103 countries, compared to the mighty US’s 168 countries.

Just viewing these few facts leaves no doubt whatsoever: globalism is working and making nations that participate rich, whose attitude and policies are based on globalism.

Globalism Prophetically
So, the question: what is the goal of the nations of the world? We may say it with one word: equality. In the end, it will and must come to the point where Revelation 17:13 will be fulfilled: “These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”

Globalist Communication
Only a few centuries ago, it was virtually impossible to communicate from one country to another. The mode of communication was limited to writing.  For example, a letter from Israel to Rome could take several weeks if not months, and the return answer the same. Individual nations, cities, towns, and villages received their information through the town clerk. While scholars commonly agree that ancient Romans published the first newspaper in the year 59 BC, no copies of this paper survived. 

Later in 1609, Johann Carolus was credited with publishing the first regular newspaper in Strasbourg. Wikipedia says: “German goldsmith Johannes Gutenberg is credited with inventing the printing press around 1436, although he was far from the first to automate the book-printing process. Woodblock printing in China dates back to the 9th century and Korean bookmakers were printing with moveable metal type a century before Gutenberg.”

These few examples show that communication beyond one’s village was slow, primitive, and not available to all people.

Why Globalism Now?
The answer lies in communication and transportation. Virtually anyone, at anytime, anywhere in the world can communicate almost instantly in any language. Traveling from one country or continent to another is happening 24/7. Worldpopulationreview.com lists the 5 most popular tourist destinations: 

France 90 million
Spain  83.7
USA    79.3
China  65.7
Italy  64.5

Never before in history have people traveled so much. This reminds us of Daniel 12:4b: “many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” 

The Time Is Now
For the first time in human history, humanity can correspond and travel as never before. That is precisely what the god of this world wants and needs, to fulfill his aim and plan: world unity, world peace, world security.

In order to achieve such, the entire globe needs to be indoctrinated. Satan is masterfully using the latest trends and technology for this very purpose. One of the most successful theories being spread around the world is global warming, environmentalism, “save the earth.” That is the most powerful philosophy to envelope planet earth today. 

We can appreciate technology’s many advantages, including better merchandise, high-quality food, not to mention the comfort of transportation. Indeed, there are benefits for the furtherance of the Gospel, the internet being a prime example. But we must not overlook Satan’s diabolical plan to use the technological, modern world to unite all nations into a true globalist society.

This is all to install Satan’s superman, Antichrist, and the false prophet, who will demonstrate his supernatural powers, albeit fake. Or as 2 Thessalonians 2:9 declares: “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.”

Independence from God
Since the dawn of humanity 6,000+ years ago, man was always conscious of his dependence on God. For example, no rain meant no food, resulting in starvation. Today, everything has changed. We depend on technology more than ever before.

It is our assumption that the environmental issue will one day be solved; thus, resulting in man’s attempt to replace God on the throne.

In Daily Thoughts for Disciples, Oswald Chambers writes: “The curious thing about civilization is that it tends to take people away from the soil and makes them develop an artificial existence away from the elements. Civilization has become an elaborate way of doing without God.”

The BBC headlines an article, “Lab-Grown Blood Given to People in World’s First Clinical Trial.” One part states: “Tiny amounts—equivalent to a couple of spoonfuls—are being tested to see how it performs inside the body.” The article continues: “We want to make as much blood as possible in the future, so the vision in my head is a room full of machines producing it continually from a normal blood donation, Prof Toye told me” (www.bbc.com, 6 November 2022).

Blood in the Bible is synonymous with life: “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul” (Leviticus 17:11). From GotQuestions.org, we receive this information:

“Thousands of years before scientists understood the complex and extraordinary life-sustaining properties of blood, the Bible informed that ‘the life of every creature is in its blood’ (Leviticus 17:14, NLT). In ancient Israel, blood was not only a metaphor or symbol for life; it was equivalent to life itself. In most occurrences where blood was shed in Scripture, it meant that life had ended. To remove the blood is to terminate life.”

Global Conspiracy
We do not agree with many dear Christian ministers, authors, and publishers who identify globalism as an evil force concocted by shadowy, super-rich, powerful individuals and organizations, whose goal is to bring the world into bondage. Why? Because the world is already in bondage; it was, it is, and it will continue to be.

It matters not where you live or what language you speak: all nations have the same system of indoctrinating its citizens, “We are the greatest … We are the best … We believe in freedom, justice, and liberty.” But again, that is not true. Talking about freedom, the late Dr. Scofield had this to say: 

“Theoretically, we are free politically. Actually, we are the slaves of party, of the caucus, of the bosses. The very minute I give over into the hands of a convention the right to formulate my political creed I am no longer absolutely free. When I take my opinions, my convictions, concerning morals or religion second-hand from other men, whether they are men of today or men of the Reformation period, or of the early church councils, I am no longer free. 

“When I allow a habit to dominate my life, I am no longer free. When I allow pride or vanity, or ambition, or pleasure to control my life, I am the basest of slaves. The very fact that I do not, cannot, of myself, cease from sin proclaims me a slave. Jesus Christ came into a world of slaves.”

If you belong to the body of Christ—the peculiar nation—regardless of who you are, your destination is indescribably glorious! You are a member of the Church of Jesus Christ, the spiritual temple now being built. The apostle Peter writes, “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 2:5).

For the other group—regardless of whether your political adherence is to communism, socialism, capitalism, dictatorship, or monarchy—the future is dark. Today, make a definite decision regarding which group you belong to. Satan has and will take advantage of your society, your culture, your country. All are part of the devices Satan uses to deceive. The apostle Paul warns, “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works” (2 Corinthians 11:14-15).
