Satan is going to have his counterfeit millennium, and he is going to bring it upon this earth in such a way that it's going to look like the greatest thing that has ever happened in the history of the world. It's going to be brought about because he, all through this century, has been gradually building up so that now he can establish his occult society. This occult society means that they're training the little ones from first grade on up in all the ways of Satan.

Many of you have sent me things, what goes on in your schools and so forth. But remember what was the best selling book: Harry Potter! 'Isn't it wonderful! We're teaching our children to read. Oh, that's so good, because they don't know how to read.' What do you think their reaction would have been if they all had a Bible instead of Harry Potter? 'Oh, narrow-minded religious bigots.'

You can't teach them God's way, but you sure can teach them all about witchcraft. So much so that they're having children in fourth and fifth grade form witch's covens and putting hexes on their parents. I was reading some things concerning the Wickens—the Wickens are the new pagans and they're just witches—male and female. I think when you understand how we have been so programmed, taught and educated in this society, into the ways of Satan the devil, that when he brings the beast on the scene it is going to be awesome indeed!

The book of Revelation is a global book. Let's come do a little survey. I'm sure that many who have Bibles have wondered how are these things going to be? They never heard of anything that would be like a global, one-world government. Now, we can begin to understand.

Revelation 1:3: "Blessed is the one who reads, and those who hear the words of this prophecy and who keep the things thatare written therein; for the time is at hand." John was told to write. That's something else that God does, too. When He has a covenant, He has it written down. There's a record of it so there's no disputing over what it says.

Verse 4: "John to the seven churches that are in Asia…" {Note sermon series: Seven Church Harvest—go back over those.} God's Church has not been perfect down through history. Part of the reason is because of our own weakness of human nature. Another part of the reason is because Satan has had his war against the Church through various means. If we remain true to God, then

  • the grace of God will help us
  • the grace of God will give us strength

and when we find that we sin

  • the grace of God will grant us repentance

so that we can recover to receive eternal life.

"…Grace and peace be to you from Him Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come; and from the seven spirits that are before His throne; and from Jesus Christ, the faithful Witness…" (vs 4-5). It's very interesting that the Greek word for witness is 'martus' from which we get the English word martyr.

"…the Firstborn from the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth…." (v 5). God controls the rulers on the earth today, and that also applies to us who shall be the rulers in the Kingdom of God tomorrow.

In the first case God says that He raises up whomever He wants to put on whatever head of government that there is. He taught a lesson to Nebuchadnezzar when he thought he was the greatest. He said that God set up 'the basest of men.' And it's interesting that Nebuchadnezzar repented. I don't think that was repentance unto eternal life, but at least it was repentance in acknowledging that, yes, God does this.

So, I suppose that when you look around at all the rulers of the world, you find that that is true. So however an election turns out, that's still going to be true, and it's especially going to be true when the beast comes on the scene.

"…To Him Who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood" (v 5). Brethren, never forget that. Never ever think that you have sinned a sin that God cannot forgive. If you are concerned and worried about that you've sinned so bad that maybe God can't forgive you, please understand that that is God nudging you to repentance. If you sinned a sin beyond repentance, you wouldn't care whatsoever. You would have no pricking of conscience at all. Rather, you would enjoy your rebellion.

"Verse 6: And has made us kings and priests to God and His Father; to Him be the glory and the sovereignty into the ages of eternity. Amen. Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye shall see Him…" (vs 6-7). Every person who is alive on earth shall see Him

"…and those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen" (v 7).

How is this going to be, every eye shall see Him? Those who are alive will see Him! At the end of the Millennium when they're resurrected they will see Him! That includes those who pierced Him, because they have long since died. But in a sense, since our sins have crucified Christ, that means everyone who has sinned.

Verse 8: "'I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending,' says the Lord, 'Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come—the Almighty.'" That tells us the very power of Christ. What God has started He's going to finish. These words are written to us that we may know. I think we live in an age, brethren, where we may know these things more than anything else. What I want you to understand in this is this: This is a global thing that is happening at the end.

Some places in the Old Testament it talks about the whole world and does mean so directly, but here in the book of Revelation the whole book is about the whole world.

Revelation 3:10: "Because you have kept the Word of My patience, I also will keep you from the time of temptation... [just before the Tribulation] …which is about to come upon the whole world to try those who dwell on the earth." There's a whole global picture.

In talking about the time when Christ is going to open the seals; John was weeping because there was no one to open them.

Revelation 5:6: "Then I saw, and behold, before the throne and the four living creatures, and before the elders, was standing a Lamb ashaving been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes…" What do the seven eyes represent? It's right in the head—correct? What is a horn in the Bible? The horn represents a king or a kingdom! In this case, I believe, that the 'seven horns' are the seven churches of which Christ is the Head.

Notice the job of the seven spirits: "…which are the seven spirits of God that are sent into all the earth" (v 6). There's going to be a lot of activity at the end-time. What are these spirits doing going in all the earth? They're watching over all the saints and they're seeking out those who are seeking God! They come back and report to God so God can send the Holy Spirit to be with those people, to lead them. Just like Jesus said to the apostles on the Passover night, that 'the Holy Spirit, which has been with you, shall be within you.' God is going to draw many, many people with this process. But again, sent into all the earth!

Revelation 6:10—talking about the fifth seal, and in this vision the souls were crying out that had been martyred before: "And they cried out with a loud voice, saying, 'How long, O Lord, Holy and true, do You not judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?'" Again, the whole earth! Over and over again it is the earth.

Revelation 7:1: "And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth…" I've often wondered: Where are the four corners of the earth? I can figure out North Pole and South Pole. I just suspect that the area they call the devil's triangle in Bermuda and whatever is over in the Pacific might be the other two corners, but I've many times looked at the globe—we have a beautiful globe at home that is very attractive, all made out of natural stone and oceans are a deep, deep blue—and I've wondered where the four corners of the world are. I don't know.

Here it is the whole earth. And to show you the mercy and grace of God, right before the most horrendous things begin to happen God calls the 144,000 and the great innumerable multitude to show His mercy and His love.

Let's understand how thorough this is going to be, Revelation 12:9: "And the great dragon was cast out, the ancient serpent who is called the Devil and Satan, who is deceiving the whole world… [that's a present tense participle—on going] …he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him." Again, we have the whole world.

Never at a time in all the history of mankind have we ever had it possible to deceive the whole world through all the vehicles that Satan the devil uses. Not only the governments; not only the religion; but he controls everything: the entertainment, the media, most of the publishing in the world, and so forth. It's the whole world.

Let me just mention this, brethren: I think that there is still a special blessing upon the United States of America—in spite of its sins—and I think the reason is this: As you view the whole world, the only place that the Gospel is being preached, in whatever form—be as Paul said, some in 'contention'; some with wrong doctrine—they still preach the name of Christ. So, whether people think that they are doing the will of God or not, at least the name of Jesus Christ is being proclaimed—whether in truth and sincerity or whether in deception or lack of sincerity. But God will make the dividing line. The United States is the only place that we have enough freedom of speech to continue to do that. Some other places in the world you can't do that. So, I think there is a special blessing that is given.

Revelation 16:12: "And the sixth angel poured out his vial into the great river Euphrates; and its waters were dried up, so that the way of the kings from the rising of the sun might be prepared. Then I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet" (vs 12-13). On that day the true identity of the trinity will be known.

Verse 14: "For they are spirits of demons working miracles, going forth to the kings of the earth, even of the whole world…" Everything in the book of Revelation has to do with the whole world. It's profound that that matches what is happening in the world; that the world is being globalized. All of these things will be possible because of what has been done here.

Now, let's look at Revelation 19:19—for the final battle: "And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies, gathered together to make war with Him Who sits on the horse, and with His army." This is a worldwide confrontation that is going to take place. It's going to come in by stealth. It's going to come in because of the deceivings of Satan the devil, and it's going to look so good that people are going to swallow it 'hook, line and sinker.'

Let's see if we can understand some more of these prophecies of the things that are going to take place. Notice the counterfeit. Christ is the One Who was, and is, and is coming, this beast being the antichrist.

Revelation 17:8 "The beast that you saw was, and is not, but is about to come up out of the abyss and to go into perdition…." Of course, that's where the beast is going to be cast, into the Lake of Fire.

"…And those who dwell on the earth, whose names are not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world…" (v 8). That's us, brethren!

  • God is going to watch over us
  • God is going to give us knowledge
  • God is going to strengthen us

That's why, if we love God and have perfect love, it does cast out fear, even in spite of all the fearful events that are taking place. They shall be astonished when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet, is. As we covered in part one, we showed clearly by actual fact that the United Nations is a world government organization:

  • which has no territory of its own
  • which has no people of its own
  • which has no economy of its own

—therefore, it is a beast, but is not, and yet, does exist. Here it talks about the woman that rides it.
The book New World Religion:The Spiritual Roots of Global Government by Gary Kah covers about education. I just want to tell you something that perhaps maybe you do know or don't know: all this to-do about education, education, education! Please understand that the standards set down by the United Nations through UNESCO—which is their organization for children—is the standard that is being put into every country. That is the standard that the National Association of Teachers, and whatever other teacher's unions there are, is what they're going to teach.

There are many people I know in the Church of God that have had tremendous success with home-schooling. You have so many things that you can get online that it makes it really easy for the parents to do so, because many may feel as though they're not qualified to do that. I'm not saying take your kids out of public school and home-school them, but I'm saying you might check out what they're teaching at the public school where your children attend. There was an article that said that the home-schoolers graduating from high school and college are the top ones demanded in the workplace, because they can think and they understand and they have better geography.

In this book, Gary Kah points out how that within the United Nations itself they have many Catholics working in key positions to bring the Vatican's agenda to be accepted by the United Nations, and hence the whole world. That becomes very profound to understand. That's how the woman is 'riding the beast.' The Congress' vote was this: they had a resolution—now a resolution carries no weight by law, but it's a recommendation to the President for whatever they recommend—voted 400-0, not one voted against it, to recommend and make sure that the Vatican, which is a nation state, be given a full seat in the General Assembly as a nation. So it's happening!

Verse 9: "Here is the mind that has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits…. [that could be none other than Rome; no other woman, church, has this power] …And there are seven kings; five are fallen, and one is, and the other has not yet come; and when he has come, it is ordained that he remain a little while." (vs 9-10).

When Herbert Armstrong understood this—I think correctly in part of it—that Hitler was #7, which may very well be true, because the last one is going to be #8.

Verse 11: "And the beast that was, and is not, he is also the eighth, and is from the seven, and goes into perdition"

Now then, that begins to make a little more sense, but I tell you what, if you were living in the time when WWII was being in its full blast, you would have thought the same thing, too, and you would have said, 'The end-time is upon us'—when you compare what was going on then as compared to all the rest of the history of the world leading up to it.

Now we understand that it's going to be even greater and bigger than what Herbert Armstrong was able to understand at that time. And we need to also understand, brethren, that perhaps at the end-time we are the only ones—hopefully, if we can understand it—to understand what no one else in the Churches of God have ever understood. Not because we're something or we're great or because we have intellect, but because we're living in the time when these things are unfolding and we can see it before our very eyes.

Verse 12: "And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings, who have not yet received a kingdom, but shall receive authority as kings for one hour with the beast." The ten regions that the United Nations has the world divided into, of which:

  • United States, Canada and Mexico
  • Europe
  • Soviet Union
  • Middle East
  • North Africa, South Africa—below the Sahara
  • South America
  • Asia, India, Southeast Asia, including New Zealand, Japan and Australia

If that doesn't add up to ten we'll see how it's divided down. In each one of these areas also the World Bank has a major man sitting. These are kings that have not received authority as kings until the very last. I think we find that when they come and fight against Christ in the seven last plagues. But nevertheless, they are still there and they a bear authority! If you don't think bankers bear authority and affect everything, all governments, just watch Alan Greenspan. It was recently rumored that he was on a plane in Canada and the plane crashed and the stock market went down horribly. Then they found out that was a false report, and the stock market just fliters with every little jitter.

Verse 13: "These all have one mind…." They have one goal. They have one purpose. They have one thing that they are going to do, which is bring in world government; bring in world prosperity, and to be the counterfeit for the Kingdom of God.

"…and shall give up their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb, but the Lamb shall overcome them; for He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him arecalled, and chosen, and faithful." (vs 13-14). That's all the brethren down through all time! That's really going to be something!

Do you remember how great it is? We have living experience today. This has happened many times over within the fellowship groups—especially at the Feast. You come to the Feast and you meet someone that you knew 30 years ago, and you say, 'I never knew you were here!' Think what it's going to be like with all the saints are all resurrected to meet Christ in the air on the Sea of Glass. I don't know how we're going to recognize each other, because I'm sure that we're not going to look exactly the same as we are now. I'm sure that God will take all of you thin people and put a little more spiritual body on you, and all of us—the Germans have a good way of explaining it: Those who are stout are called dick—which means thick. The next one is 'dicker'—means thicker. Then there are the rest of us 'omdickston' meaning huge! I think God is just going to take all of that away because the flesh is corrupt. So, how are we going to recognize each other? That's going to quite a thing! I've often wondered:

  • What is it going to be like to meet Paul and all the apostles?
  • What is it going to be like to see Christ face-to-face?
  • What is it going to be like for those who compose the bride, when God the Father comes down and performs the ceremony, and all the rest of us—if we are guests.

Listen, there's nothing being deprived by being a guest. You're in the first resurrection and you're going to rule as kings and priests. And kings and priest may not necessarily be the wife or the bride of Christ.

  • Can you imagine what that ceremony is going to be like?
  • Can you imagine the banquet that we're going to have before we come down to the earth?
  • Can you imagine what it's going to be like to be sitting at tables composed of spirit?

I don't know what kind of wine that Christ is going to have the angels make for us; I don't know what kind of food we're going to eat; but I know it's going to be good. And what a time that's going to be? Then Christ will say, 'Okay, it's time to go! You get on your horses!' And all the angels will bring in all the horses and they'll tell us how to ride them. And Christ will say, 'Follow Me!' because He's 'King of kings and Lord of lords and in righteousness does He judge and make war.' And we'll fight! For all those of you who like a good fight and like to win, you're going to win! It's going to be something!

Verse 15: "Then he said to me, 'The waters that you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages.'" There's only one organization that that fits and that's the Roman Catholic Church. The only other organization that comes close to it is the beast, and we will see in Rev. 13 that they both share the same authority, that is authority over all the earth.

Verse 16: "But the ten horns that you saw on the beast shall hate the whore… [they will find out at the last minute that they have been duped] …and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and shall burn her with fire." God's going to inspire that to get rid of all these temples and idols and all the things that they have created.

Verse 17: "For God has put into their hearts to do His will…" When you read anything about those doing the works of the United Nations and so forth, they all feel it's the will of God. But remember, it was also the will of God to turn Job over to Satan; but it's still the will of God.

"…and to act with one accord, and to give their kingdom to the beast until the words of God have been fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is the great city that has royal power over the kings of the earth'" (vs 17-18). Heads of state bow the knee to the pope and kiss his ring. I think that's clearly identified today.

I think it's interesting that the reformers—The Reformation—understood that the identity that Roman Catholic Church was the 'woman' of Rev. 17. Unfortunately, they didn't come far enough out of the system. They didn't do it. And one of these days.

When this final beast is formed—as you will see by reading some of the things concerning how the United Nations is developing—they are going to make it appear that the people of the world are behind this. They are, right now, encouraging the people of the world to press the United Nations for a people's assembly, which will be in addition to the General Assembly. They will make it look very democratic, because they will be able to vote for their representatives for their country to go into the people's assembly. That's why it describes it here:

Revelation 13:1: "And I stood on the sand of the sea… ['sand' represents many peoples] …and I saw a beast [government] rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy." Notice that this is different than any of the other four beasts in Dan. 7, but it's all part of it. This is telling us that this is the beast that was, and is not, and yet, is—because it's a conglomeration of the different forms of government that these beasts in Dan. 7 had.

Verse 2: "And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, and his feet like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion… [speaking with great authority] …and the dragon… [Rev. 12 says is Satan the devil] …gave him his power, and his throne and great authority."

Remember, the kings of the earth give their authority to the beast. He doesn't have authority of his own. Just like Satan does not have authority on his own; we must give it to him or he must have it granted from God. So, this is what they are doing, and this is what they are doing with the treaties. The one they're trying to get across right now—in addition to the International Court of Justice—is the one concerning children. That is supposedly for their education. When that happens, that is going to be a mandate of United Nations standards for teaching all children. They're doing this under the guise: we'll protect them from child labor and so forth. All of it's done under the guise of doing good.

Verse 3[transcriber's correction]: "And I saw one of his heads as ifit were slain to death…" How is that going to happen? I think if you go back and review the Revelation Chart—and remember, all charts are just an estimation of things and are not 'thus sayeth the Lord.' It just gives us a 'bird's eye-view' of how things may come together. Why is he slain to death? I believe that the beast is going to go and he's going to cut off the sacrifices (Dan. 12); and where are the sacrifices going to be? At a temple that is called 'the temple of God' in Jerusalem! They will institute their sacrifices, and he's going to cut them off.

Now, in counting back from the last Feast of Trumpets when the beast is cast into the Lake of Fire 1,290 days on the Calculated Hebrew Calendar is the 10th of Nisan. That is the day in which the Jews select their lamb, and they'll probably want to offer them at the temple. If he stops the sacrifices on that day, just consider what the Jews are going to do to him. They are going to send out a suicide squad and they are going to wound him. I believe that's how he gets the 'deadly wound' that is healed.

It may not turn out that way, but that seems to be the most likely thing that will happen.

Verse 3: "And I saw one of his heads as ifit were slain to death but his deadly wound was healed…" How is it healed? Just suppose that whomever the last pope is who comes in, lays hands on him and prays that he is restored; he comes back to life. and they proclaim to the world, 'See, this is really the Christ, because he was dead and now lives.' That's going to be mighty convincing to the world—isn't it?

"…and the whole earth was amazed and followed the beast. And they worshiped the dragon…" (vs 3-4). They all have been programmed through witchcraft and the occult and all of the society.

"…who gave his authority to the beast. And they worshiped the beast, saying, 'Who is like the beast? Who has the power to make war against him?'" (v 4). We're going to see a little bit later that the UN wants to have an army. It's already been proposed that all nuclear weapons be put under the control and jurisdiction of the United Nations. If that happens, he's able to make war.

Verse 5: "And a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies was given to him; and authority was given to him to continue for forty-two months." That is after the 'deadly wound' was healed. That's at the time that he goes into the temple and this is going to be the great effrontery to God. It's going to be a warning to the whole world. He going to go into the temple of God and say, 'I am God! I was resurrected! God has given me all this authority and power and now everyone who is against me…'—and the pope is going to be standing right there and say:

  • Yes, he is God; yes, he is the messiah! Yes, he is the one!
  • Yes! God answered my prayer and he was resurrected.

So therefore, 'now we are going to eliminate all opposition because we want peace on this earth, and if you're going to come after me, who is God in the flesh, then I'm coming after you.' That's what happens.

Verse 6: "And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, and His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. And he was given power to make war against the saints…" (vs 6-7). It's going to happen, brethren. Don't be fearful or worry about it. God will give you the strength at that time.

"…and he was given authority over every tribe and language and nation" (v 7). Never has been such a thing like that in the history of the world. But with the apparatus and the power of the United Nations, the way they want to build it, that's what it's going to develop into.

Verse 8: "And all who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If anyone has an ear, let him hear." (vs 8-9).

Let's look at some things concerning the United Nations and what they want to do. Then we'll come back and finish off Rev. 13.

You have the Declaration that I read in part one where all the heads of state agreed to at this meeting. If you have a computer and you're on the Internet you can get these things. This is entitled: United Nations Poised to Impose One-World Government—Charter 99—Charter for Global Democracy. Have we not covered all these things beginning in 1993 at the Feast of Tabernacles: The Parliament of the World's Religions; the document signed by John F. Kennedy to reduce our forces, all of our armies, down to just a small amount. All nations are doing that. That's currently what President Clinton did—reduced it down, down, down. The reason is what's left they will devote to the United Nations.

United Nations Poised to Impose One-World Government—Charter 99—Charter for Global Democracy (www.mail-archive.com//msg26934.html):

In September 2000, less than a year from now, the United Nations will convene a special Millennium Assembly as a global summit on the future of the world. This event will crown a decade of preparation to launch the new millennium on a new system of global governance.

That's just a slick little word for global government!

The blueprint for this event was published by the UN Commission on Global Governance in 1995.

Now, a Charter to achieve global governance has been developed for presentation at the Millennium Assembly in September 2000.

How many saw the UN 50th Anniversary video? That will show you what the global religion is going to be like, and will show you what they're up to:

It is called The Charter for Global Democracy and will be published publicly on UN day, Sunday, October 24th, 1999 .

It has already been signed by influential leaders in 56 nations, and has the support of civil society non-government organizations around the world.

Those 'non-government' organizations are very important. There are literally tens of thousands of those. And in a meeting with Pope John Paul II, especially for the non-governmental organizations, he told them that they are in a position different from any government. They are not saddled down with national governmental restraints to implement the things concerning the United Nations. So, keep your eye on what are called 'the non-governmental organizations' or NGOs.

In reality this document is a Charter for the abolition of individual freedom.

I'm just going to read you the principles here:

  • Calls for the consolidation of all international agencies under the direct authority of the United Nations.
  • Calls for the regulation of all transnational corporations, financial institutions requiring an international code of conduct concerning environment and labor standards.
  • Demands an independent source of revenue for the United Nations, such as the Tobin Tax.

Who is 'Tobin'? The deputy Secretary of State for the United States who has proclaimed that national sovereignty is obsolete and we might as well prepare for global government. He has proposed that there be taxes on oil production, airline travel and financial transactions—whether they be wire transactions or bank transaction—all around the world and all that money go directly to the United Nations.

As we said years before, 'Watch out when the United Nations gets an independent source of income.' Then they will have more freedom and power than ever before, because right now they have to wait for all the nations to pay their dues so they can function financially. He lists the taxes:

  • Taxes on aircraft and shipping fuels
  • Licensing the use of global commons—is where all of the satellites go.

And know that they will put in special conditions in order to satisfy the use of that since they tax it.

The global commons are defined as the outer-space, the atmosphere, the non-territorial seas and the related environment that supports human life.

  • Eliminates the veto power, which is currently held now by those on the Security Council and permanent status on the Security Council.
  • Authorizes a standing UN army

—which they are already developing, trained by the British. They have already set aside 10,000 troops in Britain for that. Other United Nations countries are setting aside troops on standby whose sole duty will be to follow the dictates of the United Nations and their needs in settling disputes in the world. They have asked the United States to do the same thing. Remember the case of the soldier who was court marshaled for not swearing allegiance to the United Nations? Well, they finally had to give him a 'general' discharge; too much of an uproar.

But those of us who were in the United States Armed Forces before, we had to swear allegiance to the country and to be against all the foes to the United States and those who are against the Constitution of the United States, and to uphold it. That will change.

  • Requires UN registration of all arms

That's why every state, especially those controlled by Democrats, because they're in the forefront of that. If you're a Democrat don't get offended, just realize those who are Democrats, as well as Republicans, are going to 'tow the line' sooner or later. In California they have so many gun laws that they have virtually outlawed every kind of weapon. You are required to register it so when the time comes to confiscate it they know where you live. They did it in Australia and they are currently doing it in Canada.

Also, a phenomena occurred in Australia before the confiscation of all weapons, they sold huge, inordinate amounts of four-inch sewer pipe—plastic pipe. So, buried beneath the ground around many homes are the arms that they did not turn in. But, please understand this, in the carnal world those who have set themselves up as militia to defend themselves against this sort of things are the big 'thorn-in-the-flesh' that they've got to get rid of. Exactly how they're going to do I don't know, but it's going to be a difficult thing here in America.

Also, the reduction of all national armies is part of a multi-lateral global security system of a national security system under the authority of the United Nations.

  • Requires individual and national compliance to all UN human rights treaties and declarations
  • Activates the International Criminal Court making the International Court of Justice compulsory for all nations and give individuals the right to petition the court to remedy social injustice.
  • Calls for a new institution to establish economic and environmental security insuring sustainable development

Which then they want to reduce the population

  • Calls for the establishment of an [international] environmental court

If you want to put in a house and you've got a rare species of flea and that's his habitat where you're going to build your house, not only do you have to fight the local building department, or the county or state building department, but now you're going to have to fight the UN building department.

  • Calls for a declaration that 'climate change' is an essential global security interest that requires the creation of a high level action team

Of which Vice-President Gore wrote his book and said that 'we ought to eliminate all gasoline engines'—I don't think that set too well in Michigan—'and to allocate carbon emissions based upon an equal per capita basis'—that is around the world—which means then we are going to exchange our cars for bicycles and we'll ship our cars over to China and they'll send us their bicycles.

  • Calls for the cancellation of all debt owed by the poorest countries; reduction of global poverty; and the equitable sharing of global resources… [which is no more than Communism] …as allocated by the UN

There are many more things in here. Here's how they're going to do it:

If you are a global corporation… [which most of them are becoming—correct?] …the United Nations and the [individual] nations themselves puts upon them the standard of the United Nations for treatment of human rights.

This was given to me just yesterday by Dave Dixon who works for United Parcel Service. This was sent that all employees must sign and return—you have to read it and sign it so later if something comes up they've got your signature.

For all UPS Employees: Avoiding Workplace Harassment, week ending Sept. 30, 2000:

That sounds like a 'good' thing to do—right? Yes!

Introduction: UPS [is a global corporation] is committed to providing and maintaining a work environment that respects the rights of all employees and is free of harassment, hostility and offensive behavior. For many years UPS has enforced its policy regarding professional conduct in the workplace. To further ensure that employees understand that inappropriate and offensive behavior will not be tolerated in the work place, UPS has adopted a new policy on professional conduct and anti-harassment.

Which then takes away the 1st Amendment of Freedom of Speech.

Key points: The new policy reinforces the conduct that unreasonably interferes with work performance and/or creates an intimidating hostile or offensive working environment and it will be not be tolerated by UPS. Harassment of any person or group of persons…

This means you talking to anybody at your workplace concerning the Truth of God

…on the basis of sex, race, national origin, color, gender…

Huh! I thought sex was gender!

…age, disability, religion or sexual orientation are forms of inappropriate harassment.

And Dave told me they have several homosexuals who are supervisors—one of which is his.

These inappropriate behaviors may subject the company and/or the individual harasser to legal liability. In addition, violation of the company's policy may subject the individual harasser to disciplinary action.

Which means termination.

UPS will not tolerate any behavior that has a potential to damage our reputation as a company, and most importantly, our reputation with employees. Examples of sexual harassment or sexual advancements: request for sexual favors and verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment is not the only form of harassment, there are other forms of harassment and inappropriate behavior that are unacceptable in the workplace, such as: making racial slurs, initiating inappropriate physical conduct, using offensive or crude language, teasing a person about a disability, making slurs or offensive remarks about a co-worker's religious practice or belief, making obscene gestures, drawings that are derogatory or are of an offensive nature.

I could go on and on here with it, it is a two page memo. All schools have the same thing, because that's the UN standard. All government employees have the same thing, because that's government and UN standard. So therefore, on the surface, everybody's belief is reduced to the lowest level possible. And those things that are offensive and should not be offensive are proper to not do, which if all the employees were truly Christians, none of these things would have to be written down.

But what this does, this brings you down to the point that everybody is okay and the general philosophy is going to be that you will be saved in your sins, because there's no sin. Or as Christ says, 'You must be saved from your sins.' That's through repentance and acceptance of Jesus Christ. So, wherever you work and whatever you do, you're going to see this more and more and more. Sooner or later it will become a hate crime.

  • Now then, should we quit preaching the Gospel and the Truth? NO!
  • Should we still label an abomination—that God calls an abomination—an abomination? Yes!

In the covenant that we make with God we're committed to fight the enemies of God—spiritually speaking, not to take up arms and go against them. But we are to be a 'light' in the world—aren't we? We're to be 'the salt of the earth' and 'a light of the world.' If through memos like this and behavior that comes down they can succeed in putting out your light and taking away your salt, then you need to consider it beyond that.

Most of these things have a sense of proprietary about them that are right. But what happens? It's going to get the same position that it was with Lot and Sodom and Gomorrah. There's also a good example that out of these things that only God can rescue you. I am sure they had their tolerance level in Sodom and Gomorrah. I'm sure that this was part of their general overall civil law, because at the end-time—we're told in Rev. 11:8—is like Sodom and Egypt, and that refers directly to Jerusalem, where Christ was crucified, because all of those things have emanated from there—as well as the source of Babylon and so forth.

Here's a report about the Kofi Annan's military plans (I won't read that). But here's one, the Big Five—which is Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States—they are five veto-wielding members of the Security Council. They issued on Thursday, September 7, 2000:

A joint declaration in the support of the panel's reform, and vowed to make the United Nations more effective and more efficient.

And they all endorsed it. So those are things that have been going on.

In this magazine The New American, they have it building of a global gulag, the UN's design for millennial tyranny. They set the standard. They determine the definitions of the: freedom, choice, justice, law. Their definition of it is not what we have in our minds. I'm going to have Ron Carey our Webmaster, and he's familiar with the constitution of the Soviet Union, compare this United Nations' declaration with the constitution of the Soviet Union. On paper there are many things in it, which are very altruistic and really good-sounding things. BUT, in a tyranny from the top down, they interpret every single word. And that's what we're going to see happen.

The New American, September 3, 2000, (thenewamerican.com):

pg 3—As devastating as the tyranny of the total state has been in the past, at least it has not engulfed the entire planet. But that would change if the architects of the new world order succeed in transforming the United Nations' system they created into a world government with virtually unlimited powers….

Kofi Annan opened the General Assembly January 14th and said:

"Local communities have fire departments and town councils. Nations have their courts and legislatures. In today's interdependent world, the people of the world must have the rules and institutions they need to manage their lives…" [which then these are the] …rules and institutions" would encompass virtually every aspect of our lives.

And he means world institutions. Then they have a whole section here: Building a New World Order and how they're going to do it:

pg. 4—"The world needs new ways of governance," announces… a report prepared for the UN's Millennial Summit by former Canadian ambassador to NATO Gordon Smith and Moises Naim editor of the Carnegie Endowment's publication Foreign Policy.

What you need to understand, brethren, is that all these nations worldwide who are funded by the super-rich have a mission to change public opinion. I personally like some of the things that Bill Bennett has said and done, but how many of you realize that he is a member of the Heritage Foundation and they pay his salary. The Heritage Foundation is one of those foundations designed to mold public opinion into acceptance of government policies. Since he is a Roman Catholic, he brings those things such as the virtues and the faith for children type of thing—well all of that sounds good, but it's designed to point them to the pope.

In his keynote address to the Millennium Forum, Secretary-General Annan pointed out that since the birth of the UN in 1945 the world has generated more than 500 treaties, conventions, covenants and other instruments of "international law,"…

If you're online why don't just see if you can find information on the International Court, and also go ahead and check out the Noahide Laws. You can find that on Jews for Judaism.

…which he described… [this international law] …as "a comprehensive legal framework for a better world."

The agenda of the NGO "superpower" is breathtakingly audacious. On behalf of "civil society organizations for more than 100 countries,"… (source: Millennium Forum Declaration)

That is they are calling:

"…a common vision" of "globalization for and by the people. In our vision we are one human family, in all of our diversity, living on one common homeland"…. [which is the earth.] …This global "homeland" is ruled by a "strengthened and democratized United Nations," which enforces "a fair distribution of the earth's resources…

This is coming. You don't hear this much on the news, but it's there, it's available! Then there's a whole article on the new world army. One of the things that they always ask the American troops: Would you fire upon the citizens of America if you were commanded to by your commander? What are they doing? They are preparing them for UN army status.

New World Army, pg. 13: In 1992 Mikhail Gorbachev unabashedly called for "global government." In order to prevent "conflicts from developing into worldwide conflagration," he said it is time to consider putting "certain national armed forces at the disposal of the Security Council, making them subordinate to the United Nations military command."

Then there's a section on the International Criminal Court. A section on Civilian Disarmament. Before a dictatorship can really take hold and begin implementing policies, they get rid of weapons. Here's a section on World Economic Order, pg. 19:

Before global government under the UN can be established, a stronger supra-national economic order through which the world's wealth can be controlled must be created.

Does that ring bells? Here's another one:

The Global Tax Man Cometh!

Want to be audited by the IRS? Try the UN! You have not done your fair share. You have not given the taxes you ought to! You did not declare this asset! You didn't not declare that income! The United Nations big green machine! And that's why President Bill Clinton, in his stay at the White House, devoted so much of the U.S. land to the biosphere control, which is under the control of the United Nations. I'm told they have even seen some of those who run the national forest and parks today have UN emblems on them. You can't go hike in Yellowstone National Park anymore, because that's a biosphere world control thing. And by the way, all of those secure the $5-trillion-plus debt. So, in case of default, the world-bankers own it. Then here are some:

It Takes a Global Village
Wolf in "Humanitarian" Clothing
Creating the New World Religion

—got it all, doesn't it? I don't think in any of this that they quote any Scriptures. So this is a warning for those who don't believe in the Bible. Here's an article:

New" Fascism in Fashion at the UN

Quite an edition! This is the July 3, 2000 edition.

Now let's focus in on the last part of Rev. 13, and let's understand how it's going to happen. Someone did something, supposedly, as an alleged spoof. This man said that he was having people sign up for his new electronic implant that would be in the palm of a hand, which would coordinate with a mouse on your computer. He really got a response. In his revealing that it was just a spoof, he wanted to see what kind of reaction that people would get, some of them were a hundred percent for it.

All those who knew about the mark of the beast in the Bible, in the right hand and so forth, it was supposedly a spoof takeoff on that. He was actually able to manipulate through doing pictures on a computer, an x-rayed hand showing where the implant would be. But, the CIA and National Security Agency (NSA) logged in on his site to find out what was going on. So, in discussing that with several people later on, and I actually gave a sermon on and didn't send it out, because I found out it was a spoof. But in thinking about it, I wonder if that was not a test thing to just kind of get a response.

We do know that they are working on a chip to implant in the hand or in the forehead which is called 'digital angel'—appropriate name, isn't it? But sooner or later it's going to come. And sooner or later it's going to fulfill the desire of the economic thing with the new economic order. And also, it will be endorsed by the pope because he has been calling for the release of the debt to the poorest nations, as well as others.

Revelation 13:11: "And I saw another beast rising out of the earth…" Whereas the first one came up out of the sea. Why is this 'out of the earth'? What is the worship of the queen of heaven? and the goddess Geha? It is earth-worship! This is telling us that this new religious system is going to be an earth-based, earth-worship system—meaning it's going to have a female goddess of which the pope would really love to declare the virgin Mary as a co-redematrix with Christ. There's still too much resistance to it.

"…and he had two horns like a lamb, but spoke like a dragon" (v 11). Again, I've suggested that we consider that it's the office of the pope and maybe the office of the Dalai Lama—east and west brought together.

Verse 12: "And he exercises all the authority of the first beast before him… [meaning he has worldwide power and authority] …and he causes the earth… [the whole earth] …and those who dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed." By proclaiming him that he's God on earth.

Remember what I mentioned in part one about Y2K, how that it has not been widely published and there are very few who know it, but there is now a new super-secret organization which is computerized and electronically tied in to all nations of the world. Could that be the beginning of a system so that the mark of the beast could be used and enforced? Very possible, I don't know. But he's going to cause them to worship the first beast. And he's going to do it by means of miracles.

Verse 13: "And he performs great wonders, so that he even causes fire to come down to the earth from heaven in the sight of men." It's going to be real fire! It's not going to be some fake thing worked by satellites, nor will it be a holistic illusion. There will be enough skeptics to make sure it's real fire. Satan is capable of doing this—isn't he?

  • Did God not do it with Job and his sons? Yes!
  • What then is the pope going to do—the religious leader—when he is able to call fire down from heaven?
  • What is he going to proclaim? He is going to proclaim this: that this is from God, just like Elijah was able to call down fire from heaven.

I mean, if you really think about it, from the counterfeit you can almost write the script: Will people be convinced of a miracle? Oh yes! Why? Seeing is believing!They'll believe!

With that then, v 14: "And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by means of the wonders that were given to him to perform in the sight of the beast, saying to those who dwell on the earth that they should make an image for the beast…" There's an image for the beast, which will be the mother; and there will be the image of the beast, which will be the man. I've said in the past that it's just the mother, but I think we will have both.
