Is There Really a Global Elite Guiding World Affairs? Part I

Blind Unbelief

A couple of years ago I was teaching a home Bible Study attended by a diverse group of Christians ranging in age from mid-twenties to seventies. The topic was the New World Order and specifically, the Illuminati. One of the group, a bright young man and a college computer instructor, stopped attending. When I inquired as to why, he remarked that he did not believe that the Illuminati existed nor was there a sinister plot or conspiracy to control the world. While he admitted that he had not done any study or research into the Illuminati or New World Order, he was unwilling to consider the evidence for such an organization. Unless the Holy Spirit opens the eyes of people like him who attend Church on a regular basis and consider themselves devoted Christians, they will not believe a New World Order exist and that an elite group of men and women are guiding it.

Daniel and Revelation Predict the Formation of World Government

The prophetic books of Daniel and Revelation predict the formation of an end-time government represented by 10 horns or 10 kings:

Daniel 7:7 NKJV

7 "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast , dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns .

Daniel 7:24-25 NKJV

24 The ten horns are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them;

He shall be different from the first ones, And shall subdue three kings.

25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High,

And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

Revelation 12:3 NKJV

3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns , and seven diadems on his heads.

Revelation 13:1 NKJV

Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns , and on his horns ten crowns , and on his heads a blasphemous name.

Revelation 17:3 NKJV

3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

Revelation 17:12-14,16-17 NKJV

12 "The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.

13 These are of one mind , and they will give their power and authority to the beast.

14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful."

16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.

17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind , and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.

While the above Scriptures cannot be fully dealt with in one article, the context clearly says there will arise in the last days a fourth beast and from it will emerge ten horns or ten kings who will have one mind (that is the New World Order) and they will give their power and authority to the beast. Most Bible scholars believe the fourth beast was Rome and the ten horns represent the revival of the Roman Empire. Traditional dispensationalists believe revived Rome must locate in the same geographical area as old Rome. However, there is no reason to hold to that interpretation as the New World Order shall be global not restricted to one location. The New World Order is what it implies – a global organization in which every nation of the world shall come under its control.

Notice in Revelation 17 it says these ten horns or ten kings have not received a kingdom as yet, that is, at the time John wrote the Revelation in the late first century A.D., but will in the future. They will have one mind and give their power and authority to the beast FOR GOD HAS PUT IT IN THEIR HEARTS TO FULFILL HIS PURPOSE TO HAVE ONE MIND AND TO GIVE THEIR KINGDOM TO THE BEAST. The New World Order must come about because God is the one guiding its formation. Why is God the one guiding the formation of the New World Order that is opposed to His kingdom? It is not that God is forcing the formation of this evil order against the will of those who are behind it, but it is already in their hearts to bring it about. God is simply allowing man to carry out the Babylonian dream of one world government (Genesis 11 – the Tower of Babel). Of course, the force that is behind the New World Order is Satan. This is clear from Luke 4 in the temptation of Jesus:

Luke 4:5-7 NKJV

5 Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

6 And the devil said to Him, "All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.

7 Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours."

Satan is the Architect of the New World Order

In the very beginning when God created mankind (The Hebrew word for Adam means the human race including both male and female), He gave Adam dominion (authority) over the earth. In that sense, Adam was the first king of the earth. However, he failed in his stewardship of the earth when he listened to Satan’s lie (the Bible says Adam was beside Eve when she was tempted by the serpent) and the result was not only that he inherited a sin nature (a nature like Satan bent on rebellion against God), but he lost dominion of the earth to Satan. This is why Satan truthfully commented to Jesus in the above Scripture that he had authority over the kingdoms of the world for they had been delivered to him (they were in the Garden of Eden).

Every since the fall of man, Satan has worked to gain complete control of the world. He first tried it at the tower of Babel, but God stopped it. Then he tried it in successive world kingdoms – Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. In modern times, Germany has tried twice to rule the world and fomented two world wars. Both Great Britain and the United States have partially ruled the world through colonial power. However, both nations are in decline and China and Russia are emerging along with the European Union as the new world economic and military superpowers. There can be no doubt that world power is realigning and a major effort is in progress to transform the world away from sovereign nations to a centralized world government.

Elitists Organizations Prove That the World is Controlled by an Elite Class

If there is not an elite class guiding the affairs of world governments, then why is there so many para-government organizations, NGO’s, and secret societies working behind the scenes to exploit and influence sovereign nations? Why have men formed such organizations as Freemasonry, the Illuminati, the Club of Rome, the Bilderbergers, the Trilateral Commission, the Council for Foreign Affairs, the Bohemian Grove, Skull and Bones, the Knights Templars, the Priori of Sion, and numerous think tanks that meet annually in secret conclaves to plan their strategies? More importantly, why do sovereign nations allow these non-government entities to influence the administration of national affairs?

If the United States is really a sovereign nation, why do our Presidents, elected officials, Supreme Court Justices, top military officers, and CEO’s of major corporations belong to the aforementioned organizations and allow their policies to dictate the affairs of our nation? For example, the Council for Foreign Relations in 1974 divided the world into 10 economic and regional zones. Then when the Soviet Union fell, they revised it in 1996 as follows:

Zone 1 – The United States, Canada, and Mexico
Zone 2 – Europe
Zone 3 – Japan, Korea, Philippines, and Indonesia
Zone 4 – South Africa and Australia
Zone 5 – Russia
Zone 6 – South America, Central America, and Cuba
Zone 7 – North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia
Zone 8 - Central Africa
Zone 9 – India, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam
Zone 10 – China

Notice that I have emboldened Zones 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, and 8 for they have either been completely formed are in the process of being formed. The European Union has been completely formed, the African Union is largely formed, and the Asian Union and the North America Union are in process. The three largest unions population wise – Russia, China, and India have yet to be formed. The smaller nations that are considered non-integrating nations (meaning they do not have the economic and technological means to be considered an integrating nation) will be forced to either join the world order or be destroyed. We know from Daniel 11:38 the Antichrist will honor a god of forces (Hebrew says a god of munitions), that is, he will have a war-like nature and command military forces such as Hitler did. We also know from Daniel 7:8, 20, the Antichrist will destroy three of the original 10 kings that head three zones. This could mean either he will totally destroy the nations within those zones or destroy the leaders of those zones. I suspect he will destroy the original heads of states who oppose him rather than the nations that comprise the zones for in Revelation 17, the ten horns are still in existence.

Eschatological Doctrines of Men Blur the Clear Lines of God’s Program for the End-time

On my home page at the time I wrote this article, I commented that the three main eschatological positions, preterism, historicism, and futurism (There are sub versions of each) have some truth that is worthy of study (I taught these in seminary seminars). However, when compared to Sola Scriptura (The Scriptures are final authority not man’s opinions), they fail the test. Preterism believes that the majority of prophecy was fulfilled in the first century A.D. (Don’t know what they were smoking). Historicism believes prophecy has been largely fulfilled in history and much of it has. However, they spiritualize and allegorize much of Daniel and Revelation thereby corrupting the literal grammatical interpretation for future fulfillment. Futurism, the view I held for many years, believes much of Daniel and all of Revelation is yet future. They also believe revived Rome must occur in the same geographical area as ancient Rome. A close examination of the biblical text in Matthew 24 (the Olivet Discourse which I also taught in seminary) reveals that the first four Seals of Revelation have been opened throughout the history of the Church Age (Almost 2000 years) which runs parallel to secular history. Therefore, I reject the three major eschatological positions because they do not accurately present God’s overall program for the ages. The preterist and historicist do not take the formation of the 10 horns literally, but spiritualize them. The futurist does not believe the 10 horns can form until the pretrib rapture of the Church and the commencement of the seven-year tribulation. One would have to be lspiritually blind and logically irrational not to see the literal formation of the 10 horns, which I will prove in this series of articles.

Globalist Organizations Are Leading the United States into the New World Order

Beginning in 2005, we began to hear about the Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement (SPP) and the North American Community Union. However, none of the major media reported it and only a few internet news sources. When I began to examine the data behind it, I realized it was the formation of Zone 1 of the New World Order. I also realized that if it became official as planned in 2010, it would mean lost of sovereignty for the United States as well as doing away with our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Alarmed by what I saw, I wrote my Senators, John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison, and my Congressman, Sam Johnson. They all denied it would mean the lost of sovereignty. John Cornyn has since changed his mind about where the NACU is headed. In addition, several states and a few Congressmen are opposing it. Not only will it end our national sovereignty and place us under an EU type government, but it will also gobble up much public and private land, destroy businesses, farms, and homes via a mammoth highway construction project linking Canada and Mexico as it transverses the continental United States. Why do you think the U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled for “Eminent Domain” in a case involving private and commercial land development? Nothing in this nation is done in a vacuum, but every branch of our government is following the plans and goals of the NWO.(Note: Obviously, the NWO did not become official in 2010). 

To prove my point that a world elite is controlling the affairs of national governments, the CFR is the brainchild behind the North American Community Union. It is not the product of the governments of the United States, Canada, and Mexico even though President Bush and the heads of state of the other two nations met in March of 2005 to lay the groundwork for the NACU. A NGO group in Canada is calling it treason and President Bush acted without Congressional approval, specifically Senate oversight. The American people who will be greatly impacted by this union in every aspect have not given their approval nor have we been consulted by our representatives. Why have we not been asked to give our approval for a union that will literally change our way of life? Because the global elitists hate sovereignty and consider us average folks nothing but pawns on a world chessboard.

Consider what the Illuminati’s Protocols say about us ( The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Sion ) in Protocol 5 (1):

1. What form of administrative rule can be given to communities in which corruption has penetrated everywhere, communities where riches are attained only by the clever surprise tactics of semi-swindling tricks; where looseness reigns: where morality is maintained by penal measures and harsh laws but not by voluntarily accepted principles: where the feelings towards faith and country are obligated by cosmopolitan convictions? What form of rule is to be given to these communities if not that despotism which I shall describe to you later? We shall create an intensified centralization of government in order to grip in our hands all the forces of the community. We shall regulate mechanically all the actions of the political life of our subjects by new laws. These laws will withdraw one by one all the indulgences and liberties which have been permitted by the GOYIM, and our kingdom will be distinguished by a despotism of such magnificent proportions as to be at any moment and in every place in a position to wipe out any GOYIM who oppose us by deed or word . (

If you want an education into the mind-set of the Illuminati and global elitist, go to the webpage referenced and read these Protocols (There is much history behind these protocols, which I don’t have time to discuss in this first article, but will in future articles, so stay tuned). Notice in Protocol 5 (1), it speaks of an “intensified centralized government” and that its purpose is to take away our liberties and freedoms one by one. CFR controlled President Bush and members of Congress have been doing this on a greater scale since 9-11. Chuck Baldwin wrote an article in January 2007 in which he stated that the first bill passed by the Pelosi led House “puts America in a giant bird cage.” The bill was the 9-11 Commission Recommendations Act. The act was supposed to make America more secure, but as Chuck Baldwin points out, “A bird in a cage is safe, but not free.”

A second evidence that the government of the United States is being controlled and manipulated by outside sources all connected to the NWO, is the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) chaired by former Democratic Senator from Georgia, Sam Nunn. The CSIS is a think tank whose members are the likes of Henry Kissinger, Brent Scowcroft, James Schlesinger, Zbigniew Brezinski (Founder of the Trilateral Commission), William Cohen, Richard Armitage, Harold Brown, etc. A visit to their website is most revealing and shows their involvement in the planning stages for the New World Order. On the home page in the left column, click on the geographical regions listed under the caption, “Regional Transformation,” and read about the projects they have working to change the economic and political climate of the nations involved. It is interesting that in the project entitled, “Americas,” they mention how they are planning to change the soft and hard power of the United States to a “smart power.” Soft power refers to humanitarian projects such as AIDS control and hard power means the military projects such as Iraq and Afghanistan. One of the smart projects is to move the United States into a merger with Canada and Mexico and form the NACU. Involved with this are the demise of the dollar and the implementation of the “Amero.”

In September of this year, the CSIS is going to submit a report to the U.S. Congress recommending the merger of the United States, Canada, and Mexico in order to form the NACU. Again, the question is why is our government elected by the people of this nation, following the lead of the global elitists rather than its citizens? None of the representatives of the CFR and the CSIS were elected or appointed by the American people to these organizations. They are outside of our government. The simple answer is that the President of the United States and members of Congress belong to these same global organizations and secret societies as these men and all are part of the NWO. Incidentally, the secret society, the Bilderbergers, is having their annual secret meeting this week somewhere in Turkey. No one ever knows for sure until they begin assembling in the chosen location. The minutes of their meetings are never publicized and members are sworn under oath never to divulge what is discussed. One thing is for sure, they plan global strategy for many of the aforementioned officials of the CSIS also belong to the Bilderbergers. President’s Clinton and Bush (41) belong to the Bilderbergers. Many U.S. Senators also belong to the Bilderbergers, the Trilateral Commission, and the Council for Foreign Relations. Senator Joe Biden, a Democratic presidential candidate, is an active member of the CFR.

The CSIS proposal to Congress in September states, “That the results of the study will enable policymakers (Who are the policymakers – the U.S. Congress) to make sound, strategic, long-range policy decisions about North America, with AN EMPHASIS ON REGIONAL INTEGRATION.” All of the proposals are described in a CSIS report, “North America Future 2025 Project.” However, according to the CFR website, their goal is to have the NACU official by 2010.

The Formation of the New World Order Proves Prophetic Revelation Should be Taken Literally

What has been presented in this brief newsletter proves the Bible’s prediction of the formation of an end-time global government of 10 world regions is progressing on schedule. God has put it in the mind of these elitists who have already sold their soul to the NWO to form and implement world government for the eventual purpose of turning it over to a world president or czar – the Antichrist. Daniel 7:8 says the 10 world super-states must form first, and then the Antichrist will come up among them meaning that he is not one of them, but has influence with them.

Daniel 11:23 says the Antichrist will come to power with a small people (the Hebrew meaning is a coalition formed one at a time). It also says the league made with him is done by witchcraft. Freemasonry and the Illuminati are steeped in witchcraft for it not only deceives its adherents, but the world at large. This is the mystery of iniquity Paul mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2 that will usher in the Antichrist via a great apostasy. The NWO is part of the mystery of iniquity that operates in secret conclaves by elite men and women (mainly men) to deceive the nations of the world by offering solutions to world crises they create. This is why the Bible calls it the mystery of iniquity. The very people offering the solutions to global disorder caused the problem so they can give the world their solution.

It is or should be clear that the Bible should be taken literally in respect to the formation of the 10 horns or world government and that it is occurring in our time. What should we do and can we stop it? No, we cannot stop it; the New World Order must take place to fulfill prophecy for the kingdom that comes out of heaven will smash and destroy the kingdoms of this world – the NWO (Daniel 2:44). We must pray to be faithful to the Lord bearing witness of His saving grace and we should be preaching and teaching the coming kingdom. However, it is not an Israelite kingdom, but the kingdom of Christ Jesus that will eventually cover the whole earth not a small piece of real estate in the Middle East.
