Globalism, as it is being positioned, provided for and promoted today, is the tower of Babel poor substitute for the Kingdom of God in the earth and it’s King’s rule on earth.
Globalism, Judaism and Christian Zionism come from the same spirit where a centralized government rules the population on the planet.
Globalism wants to rule the world from Brussels, Belgium where the European Union is located, or possibly from the United Nations in New York!
Judaism and Christian Zionism postulates Jerusalem as THE place where God will rule the world.
Both of these “positions” are false and create a false worship among their followers!
Liberals support globalism because it leads to centralized power, thereby providing liberals with an easier way to gain control. It is far easier for liberals to persuade a handful of people in centralized government to rule in their favor than it is for liberals to push their agenda on a decentralized form of government.
According to the Oxford American Dictionary, globalism is the advocacy of “the interpretation or planning of economic and foreign policy in relation to events and developments throughout the world.” In its most extreme forms it is sometimes expressed using terms such as “one world,” support for a single world government, and/or terms such as “world citizen” or “global citizen.” Some globalist groups such as the World Federalist Movement, and some non-Christian religions such as Bahai, actively campaign for world government. “Global” is a currently fashionable term in business, where the term “international” would be more appropriate usage; the term “international” implies business operations between a few countries, while “global” implies worldwide business, making it an adequate term for some forms of business that do operate across the world. Many aspects of globalism fall under the umbrella of globalization, which refers to how local phenomena can become global phenomena.
Jesus, the King of God’s Kingdom, rules over the nations of the earth right now, and these nations have distinct boundaries from heaven’s perspective.
“24 The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands . . . 26 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and exist.” [Acts 17]
Imagine that, God is into boundaries [borders]!
And, God determined and appointed the boundaries every person is to live within, including the time they live!
John in the Book of Revelation said this in chapter 7, “9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; 10 and they cry out with a loud voice, saying, ‘Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.’ 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, ‘Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.'”
God is even into the distinctions that each and every person and culture possesses. God is into unity, not uniformity!
For those who think Jesus MUST return to earth to BEGIN his rule I have a text for you to ponder.
“20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. 21 For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, 24 then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be abolished is death. 27 For He has put all things in subjection under His feet. But when He says, ‘All things are put in subjection,’ it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him. 28 When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all.” [1 Corinthians 15]
This is just one text that can be used to prove that Christ is ruling and reigning at this very moment and has been since He was raised from the dead and ascended into the realm [dimension] called heaven.
Jesus will not begin His reign when He returns! When He returns He hands over the “reigns” of His reign to His Father!
Jesus, as I taught in my Jesus and Jerusalem series which began in October of 2013, said this that so many have missed ~
“21 Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.’” [John 4]
Jesus reduced the importance of a specific place [Samaria and Jerusalem] to worship the Father and elevated the way to worship the Father [in spirit [no geographical boundaries and limitations] and truth [no deceptive agendas].
Jesus tells the woman He was speaking to:
- “An hour is coming when neither on this mountain [in Samaria] nor in Jerusalem will you [the woman] worship the Father.”
- Jesus spoke of an imminent change of reality in the place, posture and purpose of worshiping the Father!
- Jesus spoke of ignorance in worship!
- “An hour is coming, and now is”.
- My how fast time flies!
- An “hour” “is” [was] coming and before Jesus finished what He was saying to the woman that hour arrived.
- That was 2000 years ago!
- Today we have people telling us there is a future time where everyone who does not go to Jerusalem to worship the Father will have bad stuff happen to them.
- That is not the revelation [truth] Jesus gave this woman.
- That is a portion of the truth the “true worshipers” must use in worshiping the Father.
- Why? Because the Father seeks worship from those worshipers! “For such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.”
- “God is spirit” and therefore is not bound to a geographical location, nor does He bind true worshipers to a geographical location in order for them to worship Him.
- Worship in spirit can happen any time and any place the true worshiper chooses!
- The only limitation that is on the true worshiper is the limit placed on them by them!
I encourage you to go to Bethel Church Brunswick, GA’s YouTube channel and watch the series Jesus and Jerusalem. It follows another provocative series titled, WHO IS THE ISRAEL OF GOD, And What Does That Have To Do With Me?
Please keep in mind this very important point as it pertains to studying Scripture ~ Everything said [written] in Scripture must be viewed in the light of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.
“1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.” [Hebrews 1]
“In these last days” began when Jesus arrived on the planet as a baby in a manger! People misdiagnose Scripture because they misunderstand when the last days began [begin].
If you believe the last days began when the State of Israel for formed you are already deceived!
Do due diligence and do what the Berean believers did – ” Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.” [Acts 17:11]
Keep HIS Faith! Keep HIS Passion! Keep HIS Purposes!
