New World Order – 1 – What is it and when will it take place

Over the past 20 years or so, we have heard much said about a “New World Order”.  Especially GHW Bush, the president of the United States had much to say about the subject.  All the last 4 presidents addressed the issue of the New World Order.…

The word of God has much to say about the concept of a New World Order (NWO)…. We will be studying the NWO and it’s Biblical implications in a four part series…

1. Part #1 – The NWO – What is it? – Will it take place?

2. Part #2 – Past attempts at forming a NWO by force (The 7 World Empires)

3. Part #3 -  Past attempts at forming a NWO by consensus (The Tower of Babel)

4.  Part #4 -  The Future NWO – Is the Lord pleased?

In this first section of our study we will be answering these questions…

What is meant by the phrase “the New World Order?”

Based on Bible prophecy will the New World Order ever take place?

THE SCRIPTURE:

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. (Rev 13:7-10)

THE STUDY:

We’ve all heard the phrase, “The New World Order” or “The One World Order”, but do we really understand what this phrase is talking about?  Is it simply a harmless concept of world unity to bring about peace, or does this phrase refer to something that displeases the Lord and endangers us as the United States of America, and as individual citizens of our country?

New World Order defined…  (Please note… I have, on purpose, omitted definitions of NWO that is presented by conspiracy theorists.  For purposes of this study, the mainstream definitions of NWO will suffice. I have given the definition with a link to  their sources)

“the post-Cold War organization of power in which nations tend to cooperate rather than foster conflict.”  http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/new+world+order

“any period of history evidencing a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World_Order

“a vision of the world in which greater peace and stability is achieved through a new political order following the end of the cold war.”

http://www.allwords.com/word-New+World+Order.html

“a political situation in which the countries of the world are no longer divided because of their support for either the United States or the Soviet Union and instead work together to solve international problems”

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/the-new-world-order

Based upon the above definitions, my understanding of the meaning of New World Order (NWO), has these basic parts to it…

  1. some type of political unity between nations
  2. this unity is brought about by an exercise of authority
  3. the desired results of this unity are
    1. less conflicts
    2. dramatic changes in political thought
    3. dramatic changes in national power
    4. greater harmony and agreement between nations
    5. greater prosperity between nations (military, economic, social)
    6. the solving of international problems

This sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it?  To unify all the nations so that there is no more wars, no more social injustice, and basically, no more disagreements.  Who would want to oppose that?

The principle sounds pretty good and for those who are fans of a NWO there is even better news… in our texts, it will take place…

And it was given unto him… and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world… Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. (Rev 13:7-10)

See also (Dan 7:21-25, Dan 11:36-39)

There is coming a day, I believe not too far into the future, the world is going to be put under a unified authority.  The identity of the authority is under much debate, but one thing we know for sure… when this takes place, Satan will be the ultimate authority under the permissive will of God. (Rev 13:1-6)

SUMMARY:

The answer our original questions…

What is meant by the phrase “the New World Order?”

Simply put it is:  a political unity between nations, that results in less conflict and instability by working together to solve the problems of the world.

Based on Bible prophecy will the New World Order ever take place?

Absolutely, according to Rev 13:7-10 (and many other verses) the Bible makes it plain that this NWO will take place in the not so distant future.

The basic concept of a NWO has existed throughout the ages of mankind, beginning with the Tower of Babel; followed by the different world empires extending from the Egyptian Empire to the Roman Empire; and extending into today’s time.  The concept of the NWO is nothing new.

In our next study will we look at the different forced attempts for a NWO brought about by the ancient world empires (Egypt to Rome).  Were they successful?  What was Lord’s response to their attempts?

    Excellent post on a difficult subject. I believe the end may be seen in our lifetime, we need to be ready for it.

    • Rob Barkman says:

      I happen to agree with you, brother… the end certainly appears to be within our reach. So much is happening so quickly. It astounds me. Lord bless.

      • writinggomer says:

        I’m with you on that, actually it is downright scary in a way. I remember wanting to be here all through the end to see what it will be like…then I learned about the end. I no longer hold that view.
        I just wish that all would accept Christ and therefore escape the tribulation.

      • Rob Barkman says:

        AMEN…. as we see these events taking place it should motivate Christians to be greater witnesses for Him seeing the lost world’s spiritually needy condition. Lord bless.

  4. Sounds good – but so do many evils.

    We need to be aware of these things and see them in the right perspective. Thanks for this series. I look forward to more.

    We are one day closer. Time is running out. We need to be aware.

    (Odd. The adv on this page – here anyway – is Bill Clinton’s Foundation: How will you build a better world? I think we would agree on the answer to that question!)

    • Rob Barkman says:

      Angela, You are so right… it does sound great much like many of Satan’s other temptations. Our only hope is for God’s grace to continue to show us truth from the errors Satan throws our way! Thanks for your comments. By the way, I thought the ad was ironic as well… as you know none of us as contributors, nor Evelyn the founder of Christian Blessings has any control over which ads are placed where. I would love to know it WP does it randomly or if a computer places them based upon the content of the postings. Lord bless.

      • Rob, a lot of the advs I see are for Australian companies and my guess is you don’t get them, so there must be some sort of control. I was quite upset, though, when one adv on my page was for tarot card readings!

    Revelation17. The whore that rides the beast. That day is upon us.

  6. ptl2010 says:

    It will be a time of deceptive peace, by the permissive will of God.
    Let us not be lulled into inaction for the time is coming when persecution will prevail and the children of God must awake out of their slumber for the Bridgroom cometh to take His Bride home. .
