Trusting God As Freedom Fades
The Wake-Up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

Trusting God as Freedom Fades
By the end of April 1945, Hitler had lost WW II. Months earlier, communist Alger Hiss had served as President Roosevelt's adviser at the Yalta Conference, where Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin consigned most of Eastern Europe to Stalin's deadly realm.
As UN Secretary General, Hiss convened the First UN Conference in San Francisco in June, 1945. The UN Charter, co-authored by Hiss, was signed by representatives from 50 nations on June 26. The new global era had begun!
"The task before UNESCO... is to help the emergence of a single world culture....This is opportune, since this the first time in history that the scaffolding and the mechanisms for world unification have become available.... And it is necessary, for at the moment, two opposing philosophies of life confront each other from the West and from the East....
"You may categorize the two philosophies as...individualism versus collectivism...or as capitalism versus communism, or as Christianity versus Marxism. Can these opposites be reconciled, this antithesis be resolved in a higher synthesis? I believe...it must happen.... If we are to achieve progress, we must learn to uncrystalize our dogmas." UNESCO: Its purpose and Its Philosophy, p.64.
Through the rest of the 19th century, most Americans remained loyal to our God and nation. But behind the scenes, the transformation continued. To prepare Americans to recognize and resist communism back in 1963, the House of Representatives included a long list of Communist Goals in the Appendix of the Congressional Record. Here are just a few. Notice how they match the current changes. Most fit the Islamic agenda as well:
· Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and propaganda.
· Use student riots to foment public protests...
· Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity...and easy divorce.
· Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents....
· Infiltrate the press....
· Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity...
· Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible...
· Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious [referring to Christianity] expression in the schools...
· Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs...
· Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over...education, social agencies...mental health clinics, etc.
Communist Goals, Congressional Record (House of Representatives), Appendix, pp. A34-A35.
Remember, this is spiritual warfare! Look around, and you will see countless signs that our treasured heritage of faith and freedom is being replaced by these repressive options: Global Socialism, Communism, Communitarianism (a blend of communism and capitalism) and/or Islam. All share a common hatred for God, His Word and His moral guidelines!
Considering the unseen forces that drive the world system, today's sinister plots shouldn't surprise us. For example, many leaders have called for drastic reductions of the world's population. Back in 1995, New Age author Dr. Sam Keen, a plenary speaker at Gorbachev's 1995 State of the World Conference said:
"Cut the population by 90 percent and there aren't enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage."

The applause was deafening!
Kill billions of people? How? What happened to love, compassion, and concern for the poor? Our globalist leaders call for poverty programs, gun control, and financial redistribution as if they wanted to save lives. Are these schemes simply stepping stones toward mind-changing control?
In the Soviet Union that America helped create, ordinary individuals became worthless in the impersonal context of collectivism. The promise of "common good" meant little more than such upside-down Orwellian assurances as "Ignorance is STRENGTH."
To build this new world, the "power elite" need one crisis after another. As David Rockefeller said:
"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis...and the nations will accept the New World Order."
David Rockefeller speaking at the UN, Sept. 14, 1994.
Pointing to the current financial chaos, Carl Teichrib wrote,
"Watching the markets... two interlocking phrases immediately come to mind: Ordo ab Chaos, and Crisis Equals Opportunity. Ordo ab Chao is a Latin phrase and the motto of the Thirty-Third Degree of Freemasonry. It means, 'Order out of Chaos.'”
Carl Teichrib, "The Joseph Principle and Crisis Economics," Quoting Albert G. Mackey, An Encyclopædia of Freemasonry, Volume 2, (Masonic History Company, 1917), p.537.
Whether the chaos ahead will be real or conjured, they may well be used to push the masses toward global tyranny. The planned solidarity will be cleansed of divisive truths from the Bible. Those who refuse to comply will face painful consequences.
Might the spread of Islam be used for similar purposes? A few more wars and revolutions -- unencumbered by Christian moral restraints -- would help our globalist leaders solve the so-called population crisis. It would also show that apart from God's Word and moral guidelines, humanity will simply revert to the savage cruelty and barbarian decadence of previous civilizations.
But if Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, then--
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ...Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." (Romans 8:35, 37) So-
"Be strong and of good courage;
Be not afraid, neither be dismayed,
For the Lord your God is with you
wherever you go."
Wake-up, Pastors! Wake-up, Christians!
