"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

A Declaration of Peace

by A.M. Kisly

The New World Order is a term used to describe the uniting of the world's superpowers to secure and maintain global peace, safety, and security. Synonymous with the term New World Order are the terms one world government, global governance, and globalization. All these terms are used interchangeably and at different times to communicate to different audiences. Make no mistake - they all basically mean the same thing.

From a Biblical perspective, the bible tells us that nations will conspire together to plot in vain against the Lord. While I believe there are some in government leadership that understand this, most don't. They are under the delusion that they can create "world peace" through a united one world government. However, their efforts will only further create chaos and war, and will usher in the anti-Christ's rule, and God's judgment.
Psalm 2:1-3...

"Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed, saying, “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.”

It is my sincerest belief that we are living in the last days. Looking at all that is happening in the world, the growing concern of Islam's plans to conquer the world, Israel literally being abandoned by what few friends she has, politicians make false declarations in order to ratify there radical agendas, and news medias that are nothing more that propaganda machines to influence the masses. Folks, if I may, let me warn you not to believe everything you read and less of what you hear.

We all know how important it is to study the scriptures. There are many if give no credence to biblical prophecy and how it relates to the future of mankind. I've had many believers tell me that the study of biblical prophecy is of no importance to the Christian. I say it is vital that you study this part of scripture as well. Understanding what is taking place in our world with a biblical understanding, keeps our hearts from fainting, strengthens our faith, increases our prayer life, gives us an urgent desire to share the gospel, will keep us from falling into deception, and focuses our hearts as we watch and wait for the Lord to "catch us up" before judgement comes.

From Israel My Glory July/August 2012 Edition foi.org

History has a nasty way of repeating itself. And it’s happened again. Those of us who remember 1938 recall Britain’s then Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain triumphantly waving a paper while disembarking from his flight home after meeting with Adolf Hitler. His declaration turned out to be a colossal show of naïveté.

“Peace in our time” were his words. He had made a deal with Hitler, trusting the Nazi fuehrer was a man who would keep his word to the Free World. The very next day, the Germans took Sudetenland; and history shredded Chamberlain’s paper, along with the delusion that wishes come true if one wishes hard enough.

In April, a senior U.S. State Department official stunned us by announcing, “The war on terror is over.” Sound familiar?

Furthermore, he was quoted in the National Journal as saying, “Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.”

Although the word terrorist has been expunged from America’s official description of bad guys, this declaration seemed more than a little much. The irony is that, as absurd as it may sound, it is no laughing matter. Nor can the comment be dignified as an expression of some new vision of American foreign policy that reads, “If you want to end war, just declare peace.”

Things don’t work that way. “Legitimate Islamism” does not exist, and merely coining the phrase does not altar reality for the millions of oppressed people living under the brutal dictates of Sharia law.

Try to sell the idea that terror has subsided to Christians in Sudan, under attack for weeks by Muslim extremists. A frenzied crowd of terrorists armed with clubs, iron rods, a bulldozer, and fire stormed a Christian compound in Khartoum in April, determined to destroy a Bible school, clinic, home for the elderly, classrooms, and living quarters.

In Jos, Nigeria, Christians were watching a soccer match in a television-viewing center when Islamic extremists threw an explosive into the crowd, killing one person and seriously injuring others. It was the second time in two weeks the Christian area had been bombed by terrorists.

These incidents are the tip of the iceberg. Islamic terror afflicts Africa, the Middle East, and numerous other spots around the globe. Ignoring or minimizing it or making bizarre statements like the State Department representative’s not only aids and abets the enemy, but is morally reprehensible and dangerous. In fact, such actions pacify people, making them complacent and unwilling to do anything to stop the ongoing war against those who want little more than to live peacefully and practice their faith in safe environment.

Of course, bomb-throwing, radical Islamists are more than happy to be labeled “legitimate Islam.” The terminology translates into cash and prestige within the international community. However, terminology changes nothing. The are fundamentalist Islamists.

And while the sycophantic West panders to their co-called desire for democracy, these Islamists continue to make war on everything un-Islamic in an attempt to establish a global caliphate with the as yet unrevealed 12th imam, or Mahdi, on the throne. After all, they believe their holy book teaches the Mahdi ultimately will lead the armies of Islam to victory over all non-Muslims

A fatal failure of secular analysis of the war on terror is its dismissal of religion as a central factor in the conflict. The fact is, if religion is removed from the picture, the true image is lost. Ask yourself a few simple questions:

(1) Why the relentless war on Christians across the Middle East and Africa?

(2) Why the obsession to destroy Israel?

(3) Why the demographic strategy to flood Europe with Muslim immigrants and create and Islamic continent?

(4) Why the rush to build ballistic missiles to reach Europe and America?

(5) Why the attempts to force Sharia law into countries and communities that are non-Muslim?
The issue is not land or a pluralistic world peace. It is world conquest by force and intimidation, and that reality will not change because the non-Muslims unilaterally declare peace.

The prophet Isaiah spoke of a future day when people “shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore” (Isa. 2:4).

No premature, impulsive declaration will bring about that day. God alone will do it. And unfortunately, it is not today.
