This is day #6 of the Feast of Tabernacles, and all of God's Feasts then are based upon the principle of 1+7 or 7+1 total of 8. We start out the Holy Day season in the spring with Passover and then seven days of Unleavened Bread, with two Holy Days during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The Passover itself is not a Holy Day, as we understand, but 1+7=8; and eight is the sign of

  • a new beginning
  • a new creation
  • when tied into music: a beginning of a new scale

—do, re, me, fa, so, la, te—do—the eighth one to really complete it, though seven is the number of completion, eight is the one which begins it again.

We find in the book of Revelation tremendous things that take place. All of these things coming down through the Holy Day season, relate to the whole world. All of the events that we discuss here concerning the Millennium—and concerning Satan's false millennium—these things are going to have an affect upon the whole world.

Take a survey with me through the book of Revelation, and let's see how it emphasizes the whole world. Not just a part of the world, but the whole world; everyone who dwells on the earth. These events are going to affect every single one of us. Let's see something that's very important how the book of Revelation is tied together and what Christ says of Himself. Then we will survey and see all the earth, all the world, all the inhabitants and so forth.

Revelation 1:4: "John to the seven churches that are in Asia: 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, the Firstborn from the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth…." (vs 4-5). That's important for us to understand. God sets up the rulers on the earth, and sets over the nations 'the basest of men.' Every nation gets the leader it deserves! I think God does is based upon the general morality of the nation as evaluated by the Ten Commandments.

Why don't you do this sometime: When you see any documentary concerning any nation, or you may read in National Geographic or a history book, evaluate it from the point of view of the Ten Commandments of God. When you do, you will see that those who are closest to the Ten Commandments of God have more blessings, have better economies, have better health, have less war. The further away you go from the Ten Commandments into pure Satanism, the worse that it becomes. However, here at the end-time, the whole world is going to be wrapped up in the occult, and for a while it will look dynamic and fantastic—because there's pleasure in sin! And for a while it will prosper—because there is a short prosperity in sin! But God is going to call the judgment in on this world, and the book of Revelation shows us how He's going to do it.

Verse 5: "…To Him Who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to God and His Father… [that's describing our ultimate destiny in ruling during the Millennium. This ties right in with Rev. 20.] …to Him [the Father] 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… [That means every human being on earth is going to see Him. I think we need to just expand our thinking concerning the book of Revelation and how it describes some of these events to realize that it's going to cover the whole earth!] …and those who pierced Him…" (vs 5-7).

How are those who 'pierced Him' going to see Him when they are dead and in the grave? Well, there are two ways that this can be answered:

1. spiritually

—all human beings who have sinned have their part in the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. That includes all human beings because they've all sinned. So every human being who sees Christ coming have in effect killed Him because He died for the sins of the whole world, all time down through all history.

Now the other way to answer that is this:

2. Those that pierced Him will be resurrected in the second resurrection during the 100-year period after the Millennium—then will see him.

So either way you have the answer on that.

"…and all the tribes of the earth… [ALL 'tribes' because it's not just countries, it's not just nations, it's not just small regions—it gets down to tribes. So everyone is going to see this; this is going to be amazing!] …shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen. 'I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending,' says the Lord…" (vs 7-8). He is the One!

This book of Revelation, when you go through it, relates back to the beginning and takes us clear to the end. Without the book of Revelation, you cannot understand the Bible. Without the book of Revelation you cannot understand Daniel very well. You can understand it up to a certain point, but the book of Daniel and the book of Revelation go hand-in-hand. And just like Jesus taught His disciples, the New Testament teachings of Jesus Christ interpret the Old. So likewise, the book of Revelation interprets all of the events that are prophesied in the Old Testament and puts them into the timeframe of the end, for all those prophecies that fit at that end. That's why He says, "'…'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'" (v 8).

Now, let's come to Revelation 3:10—what we want to do is take a view of these things from the view of the whole world. Here's a promise. As I read this ask yourself this question: If you want this promise applied to you are you doing what it says? So that God can apply it to you; that you are able then to be included on this promise. If you're not, then you're not going to be included; it's that simple!

Revelation 3:10: "Because you have kept the word of My patience, I also will keep you from the time of temptation which is about to come upon the whole world to try those who dwell on the earth." The book of Revelation talked about a global world thousands of years before it ever took place. So everything that we're going to read about one-world government and globalization and all of that, the book of Revelation prophesied it thousands of years before it ever occurred. This is something we need to understand. This is something we really need to grasp.

Now, let's go on to Revelation 5:6, and let's see, again, that God is interested in the whole world, and these events that are coming on the world God is well aware of, God is making sure that everything happens right on time, and God has put in the hearts of these men to fulfill His will. He's going to let them have what they want. He's going to let Satan the devil have what he wants. Then God is going to teach the lesson to the whole world that all of this results in sin.

What they're trying to do, as you'll see with all of this, they are trying to save the world in its sins! You think on that, and I'll point that out later. Christ is coming to save the world from its sins! You can never be saved in your sins! You cannot be saved while you are sinning. Very simple! The world cannot reap the blessings of God while worshipping Satan. That's the way it's going to be.

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, which are the seven spirits of God that are sent into all the earth." Now, you might liken these unto satellites. We have satellites that circle the earth and take pictures of it and let us know what the weather is. You have all of this spy technology and other things and they can come right down from miles up in the air they can zoom in and they can read a license plate on a car. So, those people who think they're going to get away and go hide in the caves and go fight—forget it! It'll never happen! They will not save themselves. They are able to locate people within 100 sq. feet without any monitoring device on them whatsoever!

You won't be able to hide in a cave because if you do an earthquake is going to take care of you. So, if you think you're going to get away from the enemy and go hide in a cave, you're going to be squashed in an earthquake. The ultimate thing we need to understand, and the people of the world need to understand, is this:

  • you are not going to avoid God
  • you are not going to get away from God
  • you are not going to get away from Jesus Christ
  • He is coming
  • He is going to set up His government
  • He is going to be King over the earth

I tell you, brethren, the time is coming when it will get right back down to when it was during the first century with the apostles, and the brethren then, in declaring that Christ is our King and no man on earth! The very fact of what we believe will make us politically incorrect. Then all of these prophecies: that you'll be brought before kings, brought before councils, brought before governors and you'll give a witness. That's going to happen, no question about it.

Revelation 6:10: "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?'…. (Of course, their blood will be shed all over the earth.] (Then it says) …they rest up for a little season, should rest a short time yet, until it be fulfilled that both their fellow servants and their brethren also would be killed, just as they had been" (vs 10-11).

Revelation 7:1: "And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth… [Here again it's the whole earth.] …holding back the four winds of the earth, so that the wind might not blow on the earth, or on the sea, or on any tree." This is something! These are worldwide events!

Revelation 11:6—we see the same thing here concerning the two witnesses. "These have authority to shut heaven so that no rain may fall in the days of their prophecy; and they have authority over the waters, to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they will. And when they have completed their testimony, the beast who ascends out of the abyss will make war against them, and will overcome them, and will kill them. And their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified" (vs 6-8). That's what God thinks of Jerusalem today—Sodom and Egypt, not the Holy City. I think we need to pay attention to the words of Christ.

People ask me, 'Wouldn't you like to go to Jerusalem? Wouldn't you like to go to the Holy Land?' I say, 'No.' Jesus said at the end-time those who are not there, 'Don't enter in.' So, I'm not going to go. I'm not going to enter in. You never know when things are going to take place there.

"Then those of the peoples and tribes and languages and nations shall see their bodies three and a half days, for they will not allow their bodies to be put into tombs. And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, and will make merry, and will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets had tormented those who dwell on the earth" (vs 9-10). Again, worldwide events!

What I'm trying to do here is to show you that the book of Revelation really is the book of the globalization of the world; also, the globalization of the preaching of the Gospel. It's going to go out in power, and God is going to send His Spirit and give strength and power, and it's going to go out! No doubt about it! But, I tell you what, brethren, unless we make ourselves ready; unless we are willing to do our parts; God isn't going to use any of us to do anything. We need to understand that.

  • we need to apply ourselves
  • we need to work
  • we need to study
  • we need to pray
  • we need to get close to God

As I've said all during the Feast, we need to prepare; we need to get ready. We can't be lollygagging around and dilly-dallying around. We have to be at it. Just like Jesus said, 'I have to be about My Father's business.' And in the end-time this is the Father's business.

Revelation 12:9: "…Satan, who is deceiving the whole world…" When it says the whole world it means the whole world!

Revelation 13:3: "And I saw one of his heads as ifit were slain to death, but his deadly wound was healed; and the whole earth was amazed and followed the beast."

Verse 8: "And all who dwell on the earth will worship him… [That is the beast!] …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). I tell you, brethren, if there's any one thing we need to do, we need to hear!

  • we need to hear the Word of God
  • we need to let God's Spirit move us
  • we need to let God's Spirit inspire us
  • we need to understand the events that are taking place
  • we need to be dedicated to serving God in a greater and more yielded way than ever before

These are great and awesome events!

Verse 14—this is the coming false prophet: "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…" It's the whole world!

Revelation 21:5—let's see how this ties in with Rev. 1: "And He Who sits on the throne said, 'Behold, I make all things new.' Then He said to me, 'Write, for these words are true and faithful.' And He said to me, 'It is done…. [completion of God's plan.] …I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the one who thirsts, I will give freely of the fountain of the water of life. The one who overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son'" (vs 5-7). Then what do we have. We have three sevens: chapter 21; then chapter 22, a new beginning.

I just wanted to cover this to show you how the whole book of Revelation is a prophetic document of the globalization of the world and what that is going to lead to; how these events are going to take place.

We'll talk about 'the beast who was, and is not, and yet is'—and we will see how that ties directly in to the United Nations. There can be no doubt about it when you fully understand it. Revelation 17:8: "The beast that you saw… [and the 'woman' rode] …was, and is not, but is about to come up out of the abyss and to go into perdition…." This beast

  • does not have people
  • does not have land
  • does not have a currency
  • does not have the geographical territory
  • does not have commerce
  • does not have its own rulers

So this is a beast, which, according to the Bible definition, does not have sovereignty as we will review again in the book by Dr. John Coleman. That's why it's the beast that was, and is not, and is about to come. We're right about at this point now, when the abyss is going to open and it really comes out in its full form. We're living in the days when that's going to happen.

"And those who dwell on the earth, whose names are not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, shall be astonished when they see the beast that was, but is not, and yet is" (v 8).

Now, let's review some of the things so we can understand it. We are going to be amazed at the things that are going to take place on this earth. The beast is the whole organization of the United Nations. We'll see that that's what it's going to be. In the end-time there is going to come a man who will be the head of it, and he will be personified and be the beast! So we will have the beast as the leader, and then the whole organization of it will then be the body of the beast. Then you will have the false prophet who will work with him hand-in-glove. We are coming closer and closer to that time. Now let's review a little bit here concerning sovereignty. Let me remind you again of the book Diplomacy by Deception, and that's how Satan operates—doesn't he? He deceives the whole world!

Let's come to John, the eighth chapter, and let's understand something about Satan that we didn't cover in Satan's Counterfeit Millennium #1. 'He's a liar and the father of it.' Every time he comes, he comes with a lie, which sounds good; and he comes as an 'angel of light' so people are deceived into thinking that this is good. That's exactly what's going to happen with the coming United Nations. People are going think, 'My this is wonderful! This is tremendous! Everyone getting along; everyone loving each other! Peace! Security! Prosperity!' Isn't that what all people want, and now 'we finally have it. And who are you to upset the apple cart by saying Christ is returning, He is the King of the world, not that man over there'? And you'll be hauled up to court and you're going to lose your head. That's just the way it's going to be.

Jesus said to the Pharisees who were accusing Him of being an illegitimate son and so forth—John 8:42: "Therefore, Jesus said to them, 'If God were your Father…'" Let's understand something clearly, brethren, concerning all religions of this world: They are all part of the 'mystery of lawlessness' and they are not of God. They cannot tell you how to find God, and they don't know God, even though they may use the Scriptures, and that includes all the Protestants, as well, when you really come to understand it.

It's really something! I am amazed how many people fall for the lawless doctrines of the Protestants. As you have seen on the sermons that I have done on the Mystery of Lawlessness or 'the mystery of iniquity': ALL religions of this world are that way. And the Truth of God's way is that it is a way; it is not a religion! All of those who buy into these religions have bought into lies! Satan has deceived the whole world:

  • Religiously!
  • Politically!
  • Economically!

Here's why: "'…you would love Me, because I proceeded forth and came from God. For I have not come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why don't you understand My speech? Because you cannot bear to hear My words'" (vs 42-43). Sin blocks the understanding and people don't want to hear it; people don't want to hear the Word of God. I mentioned this one time before:

When I was doing my water-therapy during the time when they had the Columbine shootout, we were doing our water-therapy and everyone was talking about what happened over in Columbine and control of guns and all of this sort of thing. I mentioned what really was the cause was that this nation has forgotten God. In five minutes I was the only one in the pool. People don't want to know about God. In the world they appear to be good, upstanding people: sincere, devoted, loving—but they're deceived. You need to understand that. And Satan has deceived them.

Verse 44: "'You are of your father the devil… [and this whole movement of the United Nations and the coming one-world religion is all fathered by Satan the devil and God has nothing to do with it!] …and the lusts of your father you desire to practice. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has not stood in the Truth because there is no Truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he is speaking from his own self; for he is a liar, and the father of it.'" So it's no wonder that he has to have diplomacy by deception.

For the League of Nations it was too early for this to develop. At that time the men in the Senate had enough understanding concerning the Constitution of the United States that they said 'Hey, we cannot make a treaty with the League of Nations because it is not a sovereign nation, and we will give up our Constitution and we will give up our sovereignty if we sign it. So they defeated it. The League of Nations was debunked. As I pointed out, in 1945 they transferred all the assets in Geneva, Switzerland, which belonged to the League of Nations—mainly gold and money, reparations that they got from Germany after WWII—and they turned it over to the United Nations.

From Diplomacy by Deception, by John Coleman:

The warmed over League of Nations was thrust upon the U.S. Senate in 1945, dressed under a new label: The United Nations Treaty. The senators were given only three days to discuss the implications of the treaty...
Mind you, it was 1800 pages long.

…which could not have been fully examined in under at least a full 18-months discussion. Had the senators properly understood what they were discussing—which apart from a few exceptions they did not—there would have been a demand for a proper period of discussion. The fact is the senate did not understand the document and, therefore, should never have voted upon it.

Had the senators who debated the United Nations Treaty properly understood the document, it surely would have been rejected. Apart from any other consideration, the document was so poorly written, and, in many instances, so vague, deceptive and contradictory, that it could have been rejected on those grounds alone.

A law, which is what a treaty is, must be written clearly and unambiguously. The United Nations Treaty was far from that. In any case, the United States is bound by its Constitution and could not ratify the treaty for the following reasons:

Then he lists all of them. Our Constitution is the bedrock of sovereignty and you cannot make a treaty with a non-sovereign nation.

We cannot make a treaty with any nation or body that lacks sovereignty.
Sovereignty is equivalent to what I describe as what an authentic beast is in the Bible.

The United States can make an agreement with a country or body having no sovereignty, but it can never enter into a treaty with a body lacking sovereignty.

Because as they have said, a treaty becomes the sovereign law of the whole land. So what happens, whenever they have these treaties it supercedes the Constitution. That's why the Constitution has been made negligible. There are other things that it talks about and why we should never have ratified the United Nations Treaty.

I want to call your attention to, remember, Desert Storm—the Gulf War. Remember, the United States was preparing for war based upon the United Nations resolutions. Only after the fact did the Senate and House of Representatives go ahead and give their 'okay' for that to happen. It was a United Nation's resolution.

Not a single UN Security Council resolution, effecting either directly or indirectly, the United States has any validity, as such resolutions are made by a body which itself has no sovereignty. The U.S. Constitution is above any so-called 'world body' and that particularly includes the United States. The U.S. Constitution is above and superior to any agreement or treaty made with any nation or group of nations, whether connected with the United Nations or not.

So, the Gulf War should have never happened that way! Besides, when you understand what happened, it was setup, it was all contrived.

What constitutes sovereignty? It is based upon adequate territory, a constitutional form of money, a substantial population, clearly demarked borders, which are definitely measurable. The United Nations is totally lacking in these requirements no matter what our politicians may say. The United Nations can never qualify as a sovereign body in the terms of the United States definition of sovereignty. Therefore, it follows that we can never have a treaty with the United Nations—not now nor ever!

But, what happened is:
It was thrust upon us. By whom? What was their purpose? The answer could be that either out of sheer ignorance of the Constitution or else the servants of the Committee of 300, the senators of 1945 went along with the UN charter in breech of their oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution.

And it's happened everywhere in the world the same way. We need to realize that this is really something, what has been foisted upon us! You stop and think about all the control the United Nations has over the United States' national parks. Those have actually been put up for a mortgage to secure the $5.5-trillion debt that the United States government owes the international bankers via the Federal Reserve System. And pretty soon, in Yellowstone National Park, there will be only the blue helmeted representatives of the United Nations who will not allow people to go in there to hike and to camp and to do all of those things. It's already happening right here in Yosemite Park, California. They have no right, they no authority, yet, we're giving it to them, spooning it out to them, letting them take over. That's something! I tell you, it's really an amazing thing what has happened here.

Again, I recommend you get the book: Diplomacy by Deception (amazon.com) by Dr. John Coleman. He has another one there, Conspirator's Hierarchy: The Committee of 300. You might want to get that, too. They are the ones who are the synagogue of Satan.

When this was being introduced, here is a remark made by Senator Harold A. Burton: "We again have the chance to retrieve and establish not a League of Nations… [this was in 1945] …but the present UN charter. Although, 80% of its provisions… [in the UN charter] …are the substance the same as those of the League of Nations in 1919."

Former Congressman Jack Rarick, put it very well, calling the United Nations a "creature of the invisible government."

That is the Committee of 300 of the synagogue of Satan. The timing of bringing this about: 14 days after Pearl Harbor:

With the horror of Pearl Harbor, public opinion would be favorable, so on December 22, 1941, at the behest of the Committee of 300's international bankers, Cordell Hull was instructed to brief Pres. Roosevelt on his role in bringing up the new, improved version of the League of Nations.

That's why WWII was started, so it could be implemented. There are many other things that you can read here. He gets into some political things. Unfortunately, Dr. Coleman does not realize that Christ is the only One Who can solve the problem. Writing our Congressmen, doing things politically, will never work. You're not going to change them!

Let's go to Revelation 13; let's see how the final beast is described. Rev. 17 & 13 tie in together, but Rev. 13 tells us how this is going to come about, and tells us how this is going to really be quite an amazing thing and that all the world is going to go after it.

Revelation 13:1: "And I stood on the sand of the sea; and I saw a beast rising up out of the sea…" We saw earlier that the 'waters' upon which the 'woman' sat were nations, languages, tongues and peoples; and how that the whole world is involved in this. This is a global thing! Rising up out of the sea it is giving the impression that the peoples of the world are the ones who are behind it. That is a complete deception! That is an absolute lie! Satan the devil and the synagogue of Satan—those who rule and control this world—in a defacto, invisible government—are the ones who are behind it. God wants us to understand that.

"…having seven heads and ten horns… [always the signs of Satan the devil] …and on his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy" (v 1). It's very interesting, v 2 tells us that this is a conglomerate, and it also is telling us that this conglomerate has no sovereignty. Just as Dr. Coleman pointed out in his book: the United Nations has no sovereignty whatsoever. It is an amalgamation and hodgepodge of past civilizations all brought together in a superstructure, which we today call the United Nations.

Verse 2: "And the beast that I saw was like a leopard [Greece] and his feet like the feet of a bear [Persia and Media], and his mouth like the mouth of a lion [Babylon]; and the dragon gave him his power, and his throne and great authority." So, it's not coming out of a country. It's coming out of this conglomerate organization that has no sovereignty. This is describing the beast that was, and is not, and yet, is. He is of the seventh and yet, he is the eighth and shall go into perdition. That's exactly what's going to happen.

Verse 3: "And I saw one of his heads as ifit were slain to death, but his deadly wound was healed; and the whole earth was amazed and followed the beast." What's going to happen? What is going to happen to bring about this 'wound'? How is that going to be accomplished? Let's look and see the characteristics of this man in Daniel 8:

or Download

We will see how all of this develops together. It goes back and talks about the empires of Greece, Persia and Media. Then what happens to it after Alexander conquered the Persian Empire. Daniel 8:17: "So he came near where I stood. And when he came, I was terrified and fell upon my face. But he said to me, 'Understand, O son of man, for the vision is for the time of the end.'" In other words, its fulfillment is at the end-time. Let's see what this is telling us.

"Now as he was speaking with me, I fell into a deep sleep, my face toward the ground…." (v 18). Stop here; let me just mention one thing: Whenever you worship God your face is always down. Satan knocks people down on their back. So when you have someone like Joseph Smith claim that he got a vision from God and God talked to him, and 'knocked him down on his back'; that's not from God, that's from Satan! By the way, just for your information, Mormonism is just a New Age Gnostic religion. If you don't have the book, Primitive Christianity in Crisis by Alan Knight you may get it at: (PDF version: originofnations.org)

"…But he touched me and set me upright. And he said, 'Behold, I will make you know what shall happen in the latter time of the indignation, because it belongs to the appointed time of the end'" (vs 18-19). That's why I keep saying prophecies are not speeding up and prophecies are not slowing down. That's only relative to what we are seeing. It's all at the appointed time! Not before; not afterwards.

"'The ram which you saw having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. And the shaggy goat is the king of Greece. And the great horn between his eyes is the first king…. [Alexander the Great] …Now that being broken, then four stood up in its place… [History shows there was a division of four kingdoms of the empire of Alexander the Great] …four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not with its power. And in the latter time of their kingdom… [It's very interesting that it talks about this very thing back in Rev. 13] …when the transgressors have come to the full… [Please tie this in with Gen. 15 where God told Abraham that 'the sin of the Amorites had not yet come to the full.' God is going to wait until the sin of this world—of Sodom and Egypt—rises to its fullest height!] (Then out of that ): …a king, fierce of countenance and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty… [but not by his own power, because it's going to be granted to him by treaty.] …but not by his own power. And he shall destroy marvelously, and shall prosper and do his own will, and destroy the mighty and the Holy people'" (vs 20-24).

There are two understandings of this:

  1. The mighty and Holy people are the 12 tribes of Israel—they will be going into captivity
  2. The Holy people, meaning those who are the true Christians who will have to give their lives in martyrdom as a witness to this world.

Verse 25: "'And also through his cunning he shall cause craft to prosper… ['craft' is describing, not just business practices, but the occult, witchcraft and the occult religion] …in his hand. And he shall magnify himself in his heart, and in time of security shall destroy many. He also shall stand up against the Prince of princes. But he shall be broken without a human hand." The only one that applies to is the beast of Revelation and secondarily the false prophet. So this has not yet been fulfilled. It is going to happen!

Now, let's see what's going to happen to provoke this and what he is going to do so he will receive the 'deadly wound' that will be healed. Dan. 11 talks about him now, in this case, as the 'king of the north.' Could it be that the United Nations will be moved out of New York City and put back into Geneva? Could it be that there will be such a stink and uproar in the United States concerning the United Nations that they will pull out and then the United Nations forces will invade America? I'm just asking questions, because in America is the greatest concentration of all the tribes of Israel. In the book of Ezekiel, God shows they are going into captivity. So who is the 'king of the north'? Could it be that it is back in Geneva, Switzerland? It's very possible that it could be. All the way through the book of Daniel, these prophecies are tied to the 'time of the end.' Brethren, we are living in those times. Here is a specific, concrete action. When it takes place, this is going to then be just a prelude before the beginning of the Great Tribulation.

Daniel 11:40: "And at the time of the end, the king of the south shall push at him…. [We have yet to see who the king of the south is. We have yet to see who the king of the north is. But that's coming!] …And the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind with chariots and with horsemen and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries and shall overflow and sweep through." Another repeat of what we saw with Desert Storm, only this time coming down into Egypt first.

"He shall also enter into the glorious land… [that is into the area of Palestine, formerly called the Holy Land. It's not Holy today. It's anything but Holy today!] …and many countries shall be overthrown. But these shall escape out of his hand: Edom and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon…. [the area of Jordan] …And he shall stretch out his hand also upon the countries. And the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt. And the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall alarm him. Then he will go forth with great fury to destroy and to utterly annihilate many. And he shall plant his royal tents between the seas in the glorious Holy mountain…. [That is Mt. Zion. As we have seen, there is going to be a temple built, and it will be built right along side of the Mosque of Omar. This is going to be the event which is going to final trigger the thing which will bring the 'deadly wound which was healed.'] …Yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him" (vs 41-45).

2-Thessalonians 2; let's see the event that is going to perpetrate that assault against him, which will be a deadly wound—literal, physical, deadly wound—with attempted assassination of the coming world dictator heading up the United Nations and all the implications involved with that. We've covered this many times, but I just want to rehearse this so that we have everything put together so we understand how it's going to happen.

2-Thessalonians 2:3: "Do not let anyone deceive you by any means… [Remember, we've already covered that Satan has deceived the whole world.] …because that day will not come unless the apostasy shall come first… [meaning a future event. And we are getting closer to the completion of that, the more that we gather together of this one-world religion, the closer we are to the apostasy in the world. We've already seen the apostasy happen within the Church—haven't we?] …and the man of sin shall be revealed—the son of perdition." That is the beast, and we are the ones who will reveal it; we are the ones who will know who he is. It's going to be known in the whole world, because not only are we going to reveal it, but the two witnesses are going to reveal it.

You need the Chart of Revelation so you can understand sequence of events. The two witnesses come on the scene about six months before this event takes place here where the beast comes in and he enters into the temple. He's going to enter into the Jewish temple which they will call 'the temple of God' in Jerusalem.

Verse 4: "The one who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is an object of worship; so that he comes into the temple of God and sits down as God, proclaiming that he himself is God." If you take from the time that the beast and the false prophet are killed and you go back 42 months, and you also figure when the sacrifices will be stopped and you go back 1260 days, you come to the 10th of Nisan. And the 10th of Nisan is the day when the Passover lambs will be selected by the Jews. He comes in and stops those sacrifices at that time. That's why then the Jews are going to mount an assassination squad and they are going to get him. He is going to be wounded, but his deadly wound is going to be healed! And when he comes back from that, then the whole earth is going to be really be in the grips of Satan the devil and the beast and the false prophet.

Let's go back to Revelation 13:3 and we will read that. That is the event which causes the deadly wound. Then it's healed. "…but his deadly wound was healed; and the whole earth was amazed and followed the beast. And they worshiped the dragon 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?'…. [then at that time]: …And a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies was given to him; and authority was given to him to continue for forty-two months. 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, and to overcome them; and he was given authority over every tribe and language and nation…. [Brethren, this is a huge, tremendous event!] …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" (vs 3-8). That's the event that's going to trigger it.

Now, let's see how things are coming right now in the developing of the United Nations. This event will have already taken place by time you get this sermon, so you may have more information by that time. This is an article United Nations Poised to Impose a One-World Government: Charter 99 and the Charter for Global Democracy. These are the special interest people and the pawns of the Committee of 300 who are doing this. The peoples of the world are not rising up to make this happen, but they are giving the impression that they are.

In September, 2000, 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 means: one-world global government!

The blueprint was published by the commission on global governance in 1995. Now, a charter to achieve global governments…

They're not saying a 'global government' is what they mean, so they use the word 'governance' so it's a little 'softer' and people won't really have a clue as to what they are doing.

This has been developed for the presentation for the Millennium Assembly next September. It will also be published publicly on UN Day, October 24. It is called The Charter for Global Democracy.
Rising up out of the sea, giving the appearance of people doing it.

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

Now, 'non-government organizations' (NGOs). These are the ones who are implementing all of these things and all of these programs. It's like all the bureaucracies in America, the United States. They have been given the power to make regulations such as the EPA, DRE and so forth. All of these U.S. government bureaucracies have been given the power to make regulations with the force of law. This is what the non-governmental agencies in the world are going to come to. So, keep your eye on the non-governmental organizations. The document is, in reality, a charter for the abolition of individual freedom.

Let me just read the principles: This charter

1. calls for the consolidation of all international agency under the direct authority of the United Nations.

2. calls for the regulation by the United Nations of all transnational corporations and financial institutions, requiring an international code of conduct concerning environment and labor standards.

3. demands an independent source of revenue for the UN.

Now, I've mentioned years back: When the UN gets the power to tax, look out! They are proposing it! It is going to come! It is going to happen! And I call your attention to what I brought out concerning the sermon on the coming UN armies—Standing Army! It is going to be big! It is going to be under the direction of the UN and it's going to fulfill its wishes. Though, it's going to have taxation to support it. So, there is a tax called The Tobin Tax and taxes on aircraft, shipping fuels, licensing of the use of global commons—the space up in the outer-space around the earth—and non-territorial seas and the related environment that supports human life.

4. to eliminate the veto power and the permanent member status of the Security Counsel

5. authorizes a standing UN army

6. requires UN registration of all arms and reduction of all national armies as part of a multilateral, global security system under the authority of the United Nations

7. requires individual and national compliance with all human rights treaties and declarations

Notice 'individual'! People then will be governed not by the laws of the United States, but by the UN.

8. Activates the International Criminal Court and makes the International Court of Justice compulsory for all nations and gives individuals rights to petition the courts to remedy social injustice.

Nice broad term—isn't it? To speak against the evils of this world will be a social injustice. It'll be against the rights of people to have their own religion. That's how we're going to be hauled up for it. If you don't believe there's a coming world-court, just start going through some of these documents. If you're online, get on the UN page, watch it, look at it, read some of the documents, be aware of what's going on. I'll do what I can to keep you updated on all of this. Of course, that is as we go down in time.

9. calls for a new institution to establish economic and environmental security by ensuring sustainable development.

But, you have to save the flies and the frogs and the snakes, and you can't develop. You can't cut timber. They'll let it all burn down in a forest fire, but no, you can't cut it down to build houses. God gave trees so they would grow. They get old. They are meant to be cut down. They are meant to be used. Every place where they have clear cutting, please understand, it always grows back. They always plant trees. But, we've been sold a 'bill of goods' by this environmental thing! If you want to vote for a 'tree hugger' vote for Al Gore!

10. calls for the establishment of an International Environment Court

11. calls for a declaration that climate change is an essential global security interest that requires the creation of a high level action team to allocate carbon emissions based upon equal per capita rights.

That means we're all going to give up our cars! You think about it! Here's the one they want:

12. calls for the cancellation of all debt owed by the poorest nations; global poverty reduction; for equitable sharing of global resources as allocated by the United Nations.

Who's going to see that that is done? The United Nations! And they will enforce it and you will have no rights. Please understand, all international law—that will be imposed and there will be people brought to justice concerning it—will be Cannon Law. Cannon Law is this: You are guilty unless you can prove yourself innocent. Now you know why the Founding Fathers of the United States of America had it so that you are innocent until proven guilty! That will soon be all done away! The United Nations is going to make sure that that is going to happen.

Let's go back and review Psalm 2, and let's see how all of this fits together. Then I'm going to read to you some things from The People's Millennium Forum. Psalm 2:1: "Why do the nations rage and the people plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together against the LORD and against His Christ, saying, 'Let us break Their bands asunder… [this is the great apostasy at the end. Let's have nothing to do with God, the true God. They'll all be worshipping Satan the devil. They will be imagining a vain thing! The UN is going to be an absolute vain creature and the man who heads the very last beast is going to be the vainest of all saying that he is God.] …and cast away Their cords from us.' He who sits in the heavens laughs; the LORD scoffs at them" (vs 1-4). And God is going to have them in derision.

Let's come to Luke 19 and let's see something else here. This is very interesting, because we have two things going on here in Luke 19:12—that is when they thought the Kingdom of God should appear immediately: "Therefore, He said, 'A certain nobleman set out to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and to return…. [He's talking about Himself here in this case, before He left.] …And after calling ten of his servants, he gave to them ten pounds, and said to them, "Trade until I come back"'" (vs 12-13). So, this is giving the commission to the Church to do the work that the Church is to do, and also coming down to each one of us, as it ties in with the Parable of the Talents (Matt. 25). That's a parallel account similar to this.

Verse 14: "But his citizens hated him… [not the ones who were the servants of God. The citizens here are the people of the world. Do they hate God today? Yes!] …and sent an ambassador after him, saying, "We are not willing to have this man reign over us."…. [that ties right in with Psa. 2—'let us cut his bands; cut the cords' We don't need God! We'll finish what the Tower of Babel started!] …And it came to pass that when he returned after receiving the kingdom, he directed that those servants to whom he had given the money be called to him, in order that he might know what each one had gained by trading'" (vs 14-15). And He gave them authority over the cities.

Let's come over to v 27: "'Moreover, bring my enemies, those who were not willing for me to reign over them, and slay them here before me.'" Those are the seven last plagues and then the wars of the beginning of the Millennium. They are going to be set up for it in such a profound way.

I want to read to you some parts out of this—called: We the People's Millennium Forum: Declaration and Agenda for Action, Strengthening the United Nations for the 21st Century (un.org/millennium/declaration.htm)

We, the 1,350 representatives of over 1,000 non-governmental organizations and other civil society organizations from more than 100 countries, have gathered at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 22 to 26 May 2000 to build upon a common vision and the work begun at civil society conferences and the United Nations world conferences of the 1990s…
They've been working behind the scenes, and we haven't known it.

…to draw the attention of Governments to the urgency of implementing the commitments they have made, and to channel our collective energies by reclaiming globalization for and by the people..
Now, what are those commitments that were made? Who made them? Who's under obligation?

Our Vision
"The people imagine a vain thing!"
Our vision is of a world that is human-centered and genuinely democratic…

God's is going to be a Millennium where that it's going to be God-centered! And run according to the love of God,not the democracy that people think of in the world.

…where all human beings are full participants and determine their own destinies.

You can't do that when it's going to be governed from the top down; from the UN with their laws and dictatorial things.

In our vision, we are one human family in all our diversity, living on one common homeland and sharing a just, sustainable and peaceful world, guided by the universal principles of democracy, equality, inclusion, voluntarism, non-discrimination and participation by all persons, men and women, young and old, regardless of race, faith, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity or nationality.
That is Sodom and Egypt, my friends!

It is a world where peace and human security, as envisioned in the principles of the Charter of the United Nations, replace armaments, violent conflict and wars. It is a world where everyone lives in a clean environment with a fair distribution of the earth's resources.

Communism! That's what this whole thing is—communism! It's all against Israel, because what did God give to Israel? God gave to physical Israel all the blessings, all the richest places of the world! The wealth, the blessing of God through Abraham! They want to undo all of that—don't they! As I said, look at these societies and look at these nations and judge them by the Ten Commandments. They want to do it so they can have salvation, as I said, in their sins, excluding God, worshipping Satan the devil and doing their way!This is something! I mean, this is absolutely amazing!

Our vision includes a special role for the dynamism of young people and the experience of the elderly…

This is why the education around the world has been formed according to the mold of what the New Agers want; the one-worlders want—which then is what? Group thinking! Remember last year we had the sermons: Stinkin' Thinkin'; and they've molded a whole society through the educational systems of the world, so the young people coming along are going to be all for it. That's why they're going to have a special place for them. What does it say in Isa. 3? 'Children will rule over them and be their oppressors.' Yes, indeed! I tell you, this is amazing!

…and reaffirms the universality, indivisibility and interdependence of all human rights—civil, political, economic, social and cultural.

and religious—the unspoken thing; that's the other side of the story. Last year I brought you about Satan's coming Global Church of Satan. This year I'm bringing you Satan's Counterfeit Millennium!

The Challenges: We begin the new millennium facing grave and interconnected challenges. As actors in the struggle for peace, justice and the eradication of poverty, NGOs [Non-Government Organizations] encounter daily the human impact of rising violence and armed conflicts, widespread violations of human rights and unacceptably large numbers of people who are denied the means of a minimal human existence.
That's all because of sin!

At the same time, new and emerging diseases, such as human immunodeficiency syndrome/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS), threaten to devastate entire societies.
Listen, there's one way to end all these diseases. Stop fornication, stop adultery, stop homosexuality, and they will disappear. But oh, no! You cannot enforce the commandment 'you shall not commit adultery.' Or that homosexuality is wrong.

Globalization and advances in technology create significant opportunities for people to connect, share and learn from each other. At the same time, corporate-driven globalization increases inequities between and within countries, undermines local traditions and cultures and escalates disparities between rich and poor, thereby marginalizing large numbers of people in urban and rural areas.
Jesus said you'll 'always have the poor with you.'

Women, indigenous peoples, youth, boys and girls and people with disabilities suffer disproportionately from the effects of globalization. Massive debt repayments are still made by the poorest nations to the richest, at the expense of basic health care, education and children's lives. Trafficking in women, sexual exploitation, drug trafficking, money-laundering, corruption and the flow of small arms promote insecurity. States are becoming weaker, while an unaccountable transnational private sector grows stronger. A single-minded focus on economic growth through uncontrolled free markets, combined with the adjustment and stabilization policies of international financial institutions controlled by the rich creditor nations, are crippling many national economies, exacerbating poverty, eroding human values and destroying the natural environment.

In other words, what they're saying, 'We're going to take from the rich and we're going to give to the poor'—and that is Communism!

Globalization should be made to work for the benefit of everyone to eradicate poverty and hunger globally; establish peace globally; ensure the protection and promotion of human rights globally; ensure the protection of our global environment; and enforce social standards in the workplace globally. This can happen only if global corporations, international financial and trade institutions and Governments are subject to effective democratic control by the people.
i.e. United Nations General Assembly

 We see a strengthened and democratized United Nations and a vibrant civil society as guarantors of this accountability. And we issue a warning:
This is a threat! Listen to it, they're warning!

if the architects of globalization are not held to account, this will not simply be unjust; the edifice will crumble, with dire consequences for everyone. In the end, the wealthy will find no refuge, as intolerance, disease, environmental devastation, war, social disintegration and political instability spread.

Then they go through they show how they are going to do this, which is too much for me to read. There are thousand and thousands of pages of this stuff from which all the background of this has come. It shows exactly what they are doing. And by the way, at the same time, you might look up the ICC—International Criminal Court, which has been proposed.

Now, let's come to the book of Revelation, chapter 13 and let's finish this right here. Brethren, we have before us the greatest challenges yet. And we are going to see the fulfillment of these things in our lifetime, and we are going to be part of that generation 'which shall not pass away until all these things be fulfilled.'

Revelation 13:7: And he was given power to make war against the saints, and to overcome them…" You need to understand that we overcome Satan the devil. Let's see what's going to happen.

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; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. And I heard a great voice in heaven say, 'Now has come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ because the accuser of our brethren has been cast down, who accuses them day and night before our God. But they overcame him…'" (vs 9-11).

  • We are going to have to overcome him.
  • We are going to have to overcome all the circumstances.
  • We're going to have to overcome our human nature by the power of the Spirit of God.
  • We're going to have to overcome sin by the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • We're going to have to overcome the beast
    • by our lives
    • by testimony
    • by what we believe'

—because Christ is the King and we give allegiance to Him ONLY! And to no one else!

"'…through the blood of the Lamb, and through the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death….'" (v 11). And it has to be because the beast is going to be given power to make war with the saints and to overcome them.

Revelation 13:7: "…and he was given authority over every tribe and language and nation. 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" (vs 7-8).

As Jesus said, "If any man have ears, let him hear!" Brethren, will you?
