Nationalism Vs. Globalism. That’s what it’s all about. Don’t believe me?
It used to be about democrats vs. republicans. Liberals vs. Conservatives. Two schools of thought. Two ideologies. Actually, two diametrically opposed ideologies that don’t really matter anymore. Because they are only a front, for the tremendous undercurrents that are surging in conflict, for the hearts of men.
If you want to understand the conflict, you need to look past the congressional reports, the media hype, the federal judges decision’s. They are not the real issues. The real issue is Nationalism Vs. Globalism.
And if you want to understand anything happening in the world today, it has to be thought of from a thoroughly scriptural, and biblical foundation. I’ve been thinking that way most of my life, and it is the only thing that keeps me sane, and ridiculously, hopeful. Jesus is winning and Jesus wins, really!
Why does the media, and literally half of our nation hate President Donald Trump with a vehemence never seen before in this, or the last century? At the core, President Trump is hated, because he is a Nationalist.
“Trump’s eight months in office have been characterized by a sometimes dramatic tug-of-war between “globalists” and “nationalist” advisers who have sought to move the president in myriad ways on issues both domestic and international.” Reuters, Jeff Mason, Steve Holland, Sept. 17, 2017
“In his first State of the Union address, President Donald Trump offered a combative world view, claimed success in the war on the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS), boasted about recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and outlined a nakedly nationalistic American economic and foreign policy.” Al Jazeera, Jan. 31, 2018.
Donald Trump is the first president we have had since Jan. 1989, that wasn’t a Globalist. Love him or hate him, he is not a Globalist. Those who pull the purse strings of world politics hate him. They were, and are, firmly committed to ruling the world through government and the economy.
“To stabilize and regulate a truly global economy, we need some global system of political decision-making,” George Soros wrote in The Crisis of Global Capitalism. “In short, we need a global society to support our global economy…
The sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions… a global body with actual political weight…
George Soros is a Globalist who gives over $500 million dollars to year to causes that attempt to destroy capitialism, and foment socialism. But his real end game is a small body of elites, who rule the world for it’s own good.
Now some may trust the likes of Soros and his buddies to rule the world, but I don’t.
From a Globalist’s point of view, a Nationalist like President Trump must be unseated, at all costs. Who owns the media? Globalists. Which politicians in our congress and senate are Globalists? Just watch their actions. It doesn’t matter what they say, just what they do.
For my money John McCain is a not a republican or a democrat. He is a Globalist. If a politician opposes Nationalism, and supports policies that accomplish nothing but Globalism, they are a Globalist. If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, it is a duck.
This would be terribly disconcerting if I didn’t know biblical prophecy. Globalism is bad, I’ve been preaching and opposing it for years. The Anti-Christ will be a Globalist.
“7 And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation. 8 All those who live on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name was not written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slaughtered.”
As we draw closer to the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church, there will arise a trend toward Globalism.
2 Thessalonians 2:9–10 “9 The coming of the lawless one is based on Satan’s working, with all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders, 10 and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to be saved.”
However you have been thinking, politically or ideologically, you need to oppose Globalism. Biblically, there is no other choice.
Here’s the Good News of the coming Kingdom of God. Before Globalism becomes a reality, Jesus will rapture the church.
Revelation 3:10 “Because you have kept My command to endure, I will also keep you from the hour of testing that is going to come over the whole world to test those who live on the earth.”
Until that time, look at the world through different lenses. Weigh and measure everything, by whether it supports our continuance as a nation, or whether it moves us toward Globalism. In short, support Nationalism, and oppose Globalism.
