#1064 Is it possible that democracy will lead to the ultimate denial of freedom, liberty and justice?
The world today is ruled by some form of democracy. Winston Churchill said it best: "Democracy is the worst form of government, but it is the best we have."
So, what’s wrong with Democracy? One cannot deny that Democracy is the best form of government the world has ever seen. But there is a great hidden danger. In this book we will focus our concern about democracy relating to prophecy - past, present and future.
Everyone wants peace, prosperity, and security, but all want it on their own terms. As a result, we have had wars since there was man on earth. That’s why the Lord Jesus stated, “Ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars…for nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom….” That indeed has been the case for the last 2,000 years and throughout human history. Yet the Bible teaches in the book of Revelation that “all the world wondered after the beast…And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him….” That does not seem like war, but peace. It's the time where the world has finally reached its desired goal: peace and prosperity for all. How is that possible? One word—Democracy.
