Old World Order to Pass Away
Our present world order is in great transition and is about to collapse. Man’s governing himself is like a train wreck of the hijacking I saw in the news recently where boxcars containing thousands of Amazon and other delivery boxes were ransacked, stolen and strewn along the rail tracks. The One World Government ruled by the AntiChrist in his New World Order will be like this colossal train wreck with terrible consequences for all of us living in this soon coming period.
It will follow the time in these last days when man has proven to be unable to rule himself and corruption and violence fills the earth. The Bible says in Mt 24:37 that ‘as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be’. Corruption and violence were the reasons God destroyed the earth and the people, and He will destroy the earth again for the same reasons. But the final destruction in the last days will not be by water, but by fire (2 Pet 3:10).
In Gen 6:13 it says the earth was judged along with the people. This may likely explain why God is now warning us through the devastating widespread droughts, fires and floods, intense winter storms, and recently, an unprecedented undersea volcano eruption that occurred in Tonga with a subsequent tsunami and horrific consequences for people and property. There are many other cataclysmic occurrences taking place all over the world that are signs of the soon coming of our Lord.
Lawlessness is commonplace everywhere in the world with protests and demonstrations against authority, against good and bad legislation, against anything and anybody. Our once great American Republic is grossly divided and ready to split, with an incipient 2nd Civil War in the wings. There is little respect for those in authority whether government or the police. In Hawaii we have high profile government and civil leaders under FBI investigation for corruption and bribery in our city government.
Rebellion is on the rise today going beyond petty misdemeanors to gangs driving vans and trucks through glass store fronts and stealing merchandise from jewelry to electric bikes and more. This is aka Flash Robberies! The Covid pandemic has also compounded our problems and strained our lifestyles, schools, churches, biz, restaurants, work places, etc. causing sharp divisions, havoc, confusion, economic distress, etc.
Jesus: Peace Is Coming
But peace will come one day soon. Jesus said ‘These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.’ (John 16:33). He also said ‘Peace I leave with you , my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.’ (John 14:27)
God’s New World Order Coming
So this is also about God’s New World Order in which He establishes His Government which will be a thousand year reign during the coming millennial period. God’s New World Order will be a government of peace and order, established ‘with judgment and justice forever’ (Isa 9:7). Jesus will rule the earth with authority, with a rod of iron (scepter). Rebellion against authority will not exist as it does today in every institution of society.
Judgment and justice will be the lifestyle in the Millennial Kingdom where there will be no want or deprivation or corruption. There will be no homeless or houseless people in God’s New World Order. God will save and bless the poor and needy (Psa 72:12-14). He will care for the fatherless, the widows, and strangers (Deut 10:18). Everyone will have a ‘place of their own and not move any more’ (2Sam 7:10).
God’s New World Order will have mercy and truth, as well as righteousness, peace and joy prevailing (Psa 85:10-11; 96:13). God will judge the earth ‘with righteousness…and the people with fairness.’ Psa 98:9). There will be no oppressed people or oppressors (Psa 10:18). God will ‘judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.’ (Psa 10:18)
Only those who fear or have reverence for God, who ‘walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart (Psa 15:1-4), and ‘He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity or sworn deceitfully’ will ascend into the holy place (Psa 24:1-6).
