[More occult nonsense from a would-be Christian cult leader.] Galloping Globalism by Rev. N.W. Hutchings Globalism, by definition, is the envisioned utopian state of mankind whereby all national and international barriers, now separating the human race into various nations, are eliminated. When these barriers are eventually liquidated, all peoples on earth will subscribe to one religion, one system of economics, and will give allegiance to one world government. As long as present world economic, religious, and governmental barriers remain, this globalistic estate cannot be achieved. According to the Prophetic Word of God, Satan, during the last seven years of this present age, will make a supreme attempt to bring about a global world so he can forever add this planet to his own kingdom (government) and prevent the return of Jesus Christ: 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... And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bon, to recieve a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name (Rev. 13:7,8 15-17). In the Bible it is prophesied that in the last days one man will be given governmental power over all nations, regardless of race, religion, or language. This man will also enforce a common system of economics; no individual will work, buy, or sell except by state permission. There will also be one religion - everyone will worship a new god, the Antichrist, or be killed. Regardless of the utopian promises of the internationalists, one- worlders and globalists, there is no way to tear down existing national, economic and religious barriers except through a process of universal execution. For example, there is no way to attain a marriage between communism and capitalism; no way leaders of the free world and the communist world will agree on a common govenment; no way Moslems, Jews, Buddhists and Christians will meet in communion, brotherhood and assemble except under penalty of death. In order to attain a globalist society, Satan will offer a new age, a new world not tied to political systems, economics, or gods of religions rooted in ages past. Even so, how many still will refuse, under sentence of death, to deny their country or their god? The Prophetic Word indicates hundreds of millions, and possibly billions, will die in war or by state execution for the witness of Jesus... (beheading in Rev.20:4). In considering the evolution of the global concept for mankind, we begin with God's blessing upon Noah and the patriarch's seed after the Flood. God then divided the human race into nations, according to the seventy grandsons of Noah. According to Genesis 9, Acts 17, Romans 13, 1 Timothy 2, and many other Scriptures, God established the nations according to race, colorc language and then set the bounds of these nations. These different peoples, according to God's will, were to appoint rulers to establish governments. The primary responsibility of government is to maintain social order through the administration of justice; to wit, protection the innocent by diligently prosecuting the guilty - the ultimate penalty being death for murder. The secondary responsibility of government is to grant every citizen freedom of religious expression, whereby each individual is given the opportunity to know the truth that Jesus Christ is both Lord and Saviour of all who believe in Him. The purpose for dividing the world into nations was to prevent the spiritual contamination of all mankind as had occurred before the Flood. From about 2450 B.C. until 1945 A.D. (a period of approximately 4400 years) the world, for the most part, operated within the political framework outlined in God's ordinance for human government. It is true some nations rose and fell; some became aggressors and consumed other nations. But in the course of time, these empires fell and national boundaries were restored. However, at the beginning of the 20th century. a prophecy of Daniel had a pivotal effect on the future course of history: But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased (Daniel 12:4). Steamships, trains, telegraph, radio, television, etc... the world suddenly became smaller and smaller. Through increased knowledge, along with development of rapid communications and faster methods of travel, nations thoughts of miles apart suddenly became next door neighbors! An undesirable consequence of the fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy is wars increased in size and intensity. After World War I, many of the world's most profound intellectuals and politicians concluded nations must resolve their problems and differences without war or mankind eventually would be destroyed. Thus, the League of Nations, and international forum for representation from all nations, was formed to meet and peacefully settle national conflicts without ware. The United States did not join the League of Nations, because at that people did not want to relinquish any degree of national sovereignty. Most nations that became members only gave "lip service" to the organization, much for the same reason. Nevertheless, the seeds for the international community of nations was planted. These seed were carefully nurtured by individuals like John Dewey in the American educational system. Just two decades after World War I, came World War II. The second world war exceeded the first world war many-fold in both scope and casualties. Even though the framework for a new international forum of nations had been laid. World War II ended with the explosion of two atomic bombs over Japan. This dramatic and awesome ending to the most destructive war waged on planet earth served as proof to internationalism advocates that international institutions must be established, or man surely would destroy himself and all other living things. Presto, the League of Nations was reborn under a new name -The United Nations. Birthed with the United Nations was a host of other international social, political, and economic entities which were to help bring UN membership into a trusting, interdependent, international relationship. Just a few of these organizations are: International City Managers' Association; International Control Commission; International Court of Justice; International Monetary Fund; International Peace Corps; and the International Trade Organization. Since 1945 there have been a series of major wars (Korean War, South Vietnam War and other serious political and economic struggles with the Communist world) in which the United States has played the "international good-neighbor" role to the hilt. Through the International Monetary Fund, the U.S. gave gold to other nations; through the Marshall Plan, it built up its most deadly foes, Germany and Japan, into major, industrial comepetitors; and through retention of its United Nations membership, it bor the bore burden of cost while being constantly attacked by at least three-fourths of the UN membership. In our schools we are allowing the disciples of internationalism to indoctrinate our childred with their gospel. Dr. C.M. Pierce, Harvad University, stated at a convention of teachers in Denver, Colorado in 1973: Every child in American who enters school at age five is mentally ill, because he comes to school with allegiance toward our elected officials, toward our founding fathers, toward our institutions, toward the preservation of this form of government... patriotism, nationalism, sovereighty... All of that proves the children are sick, because the truly well individual is one who has rejected all of those things and is what I would call the true international child of the future. Professor Pierce and other internationalism advocates did not understand that internationalism would be short lived. While the course of mankind, in the economic and political sense, has been directed mainly through the channel of internationalism since 1945, today it is the throes of death. Internationalism has given way to Globalism. Those who equate internationalists with globalists make a serious error. Even the League of Nations - now the United Nations, and related agencies like the International Monetary Fund, recognize the existence of nations. Globalism acknowledges no boundaries, either national or international. While modern Paul Reveres have been running up and down the street shouting, "The Internationalists are coming!", the globalist wolf has entered our kitchen through the back door and eaten our lunch. For the first time in history, why do foreign investors and industrialists own more property in the United States then Americans own in other countries? Why can't President Reagan reverse the balance-of-trade deficit that has now exceeded $150-billion a year? Why can't the American auto and steel industries be protected against lower-price foreign imports? The answer to all of these questions is galloping globalism. To illustrate, we quote from the July 8, 1985 edition of Industry Week, from an article titled "The Now Global Game, One World-One Market": The world economic order created and sustained by the Industrial Revolution, and brought to its keenest cutting edge following World War II, is fading. Old power structures, alliances, and consumer values - all the old gods that underpinned international politics and global competition - are being reshaped. And the forces driving these changes - including advanced communications system - have set in motion some far-reaching economic, political, and psychological tremors. In the accompanying paranoia, nations have resorted to fingerpointing, grumbling, and veiled threats. And tensions are certain to grow as the new 'global game' unfolds. Thomas Campbell, a Stanford University law professor, sees the world steadily drifting toward a paralysis of trade. 'It could be as severe as the which fueled the Great Depression,' he warns. 'The world is on the verge of reverting into hostile camps. All the efforts that nations have made since World War II in opening up trade are now in peril. 'Charlies L. Brown, chairman of AT&T Co., also sees the world at a crossroads. 'We can follow an expansive approach and seek increased international cooperation,' he says. 'Or we can opt for a restricting approach and withdraw behind the walls of protectionism and national pride.' At stake in all of this is the future of the 'global' corporation, which scholars view as distinct from the multinational corporation. The global corporation, they point out, tends to view the world as a homogenous market rather than a collection of separate markets with unique requirements. Professor Theodore Levitt at Harvard Business School, one of the most respected marketing minds in the country, has long been a champion of the global corporation and the 'globalization' or markets. 'What we are dealing with here,' he declares, 'is a implacable force; a tide and not a wave.' While we weep not at the grave-site of internationalism, at least the internationalists professed to have a concern for the poor and underprivileged in all nations. While tears of the international one-worlders for suffering humanity are mostly of the crocodile variety, the globalists do not even pretend to have a conscience. Who cares if a million auto workers lose their jobs in the United States because of lower priced imports? Their loss will balance out against a gain in the Orient or Europe. Here is how the global game works as we quote again from the article in Industry Week: "The only playing card that some countries have is their pool of low-cost labor, but with factory automation, this is becoming less of a bargaining chip. Moreover, the spread of technology has created a worldwide labor pool - one in which workers in one country actively compete for jobs with workers elsewhere. A case in point: workers in Barbados now earn $2.50 an hour keypunching data into American Airlines computers. Previously, the task was done by 200 U.S. workers in Tulsa, who earned $6.50 an hour." Because of expanding global technology, communications, and investment interests, worker in one country can, by the flick of a switch, take over jobs being performed by workers in another country. American Airlines saved $6,400 a day by having workers in Barbados do the same job that workers in Tulsa were doing. This was made possible through a world-wide, computerized communication network. But what about the workers in Tulsa? What will happen to them? A few may find employment elsewhere, but most will experience a difficult period of financial adjustment. This difficult situation in Tulsa is being multiplied many times over in other cities, and it will continue to worsen unless American workers are willing to adjust to a global work scale. The article in Industry Week points out within the next 15 years an additional 600 million, trained workers will enter the global work force. Because it will be suicidal for workers to strike, unions will become a thing of the past. Necessity will bring about an equalization of the wage scale on a global basis under the global economic system, the only recourse for industry and workers in the United States is a tariff on imports and foreign services. However, for reasons we later explain, protectionism will bring foreign banking reprisals that could possible result in total economic collapse. It also stands to reason, and the globalism article in Industry Week contends, global economics is bringing with it serious political and psychological changes. The word, psychological, is often substituted for religious. While global advocates do not overtly declare man lives by bread alone, they do contend the food on the family table determines a man's political views. And, according to Revelation 13, men will one day be forced to worship the Antichrist as god in order to get it! There already is developing an alarming global control of labor, industry, commerce, banking and communications. Today, we see a giant step taken to that point when every person will be under the control of a single authority, and all will work, buy, and sell using numbers for names and code marks for identification and exchange values. According to the Bible, the bringing on of such a global society will result in more deaths than claimed in all past wars in history. But for Christians this is an even greater reason to discern the 'signs of the times' and be prepared for our Lord's return. As we continue discussing "Galloping Globalism", a prophetic overview relating to Bible projections, keep in mind internationalism and globalism are separate entities. As previously stated, internationalism entails the cooperation of nations on an interdependent basis; globalism recognizes no national borders or barriers. The United States' economic system traditionally is based on capitalism, commonly referred to as "free enterprise." But when Americans speak of "free enterprise" on an ultimate, global scope. The chief apostle of global free trade and commerce is Milton Friedman. Mr. Friedman's dissertation on economics appears in major newspapers, magazines, and television production. We quote from an article by him titled "Protectionism Won't Cure U.S. Trade Imbalance" (Human Events, 8/17/85): Producers in many industries - including auto, steel, and textile - have been telling Congress that they need higher tariffs, tighter import quotas and other trade impediments... they say they cannot compete with foreign producers. They cite as 'proof' our $100 billion plus-excess of imports over exports... The chief sufferers would be U.S. consumers and export industries, notably agriculture. Rather than raising our trade barriers, we should be lowering them... Some jobs are lost in export industries or in industries competing with imports. Those are visible. More jobs are gained in other parts of the economy... What should we do? The best solution would be to dismantle all trade barriers over a brief transition period... say five years... to give the affected industries a chance to adjust. While Mr. Friedman is considered to be a 'purist' by economic conservatives, what he actually preaches is global economics. He advocates the abolishing of all national barriers against free trade and commerce throwing the world markets open to the best goods and services offered at the lowest price, whether the producer is located in Japan, the Common Market, or the Soviet Union. And what Mr. Friedman carefully avoids is the contemporary wage scale and the standard of living of the average American worker. There is no way the U.S. auto industry can produce and automobile with $20.00 an hour labor that will compete with a Japanese automobile made with $10.00 an hour labor. The same reality applies to shoes made in Italy; electrical household appliances made in South Korea; or garments made in Hong Kong and Singapore. If there are to be no trade barriers and and a global economy, then as a globalist state, there also would be a global economy, then as a globalist state, there also would be a global standard wage, meaning U.S. workers in key industries would have to take huge cuts in wages. President Reagan has threatened to introduce protectionist measures against Japan and the Common Market in December of this year. The question is - Can he do so without an accompanying collapse of the banking industry and a related political, global revolution? We quote again from the article "The New Global Game" (7/8/85 edition of Industry Week): Other segments of the financial community are jumping on the bandwagon. Talks are underway to link the stock exchange of New York, London, and Tokyo. Observes Harvard's Prof. Levitt: One of the most powerful and yet least celebrated ways in which we see commerce being driven toward global standardization is through the monetary system and the international investment process.' Japan leaped into global finance with both feet. Of the ten largest international banks, five are Japanese, three are American, one is British, one is French. But for all the power, the world finance has a less tangible impact on countries than the location of plants and the production and distribution of goods. So the use of world- shrinking technology by giant manufacturing companies... is more likely to give nations continuing migraines. 'Countries are in charge of territory,' points out David B. Abernathy, professor of political science at Stanford. 'Huge companies pose a challenge to national sovereignty.' The article continues to point out that possibly by 1990, global economics will control the political and psychological complexion - probably meaning the religions, of all nations. It should also be noted that many references are made to international banking being an integral part of the new economic and political order. To cite a speciffic example of the parasitic relationship of international banking to global economics, we refer to the case of Penn Square Bank of Oklahoma City, located about two miles north of the offices of Southwest Radio Church. Penn Square Bank was a thriving and progressive banking establishment. Its primary investments were in the oil industry and related energy companies. Suddenly there was a world oil glut; thousands of drilling efforts shut down. The mortgages and notes held by Penn Square became worthless; the bank went bankrupt almost overnight. On May 28, 1985, I was in San Francisco to meet our tour group heading for the Orient. While waiting in a hotel room, I turned to Channel 9 on local television. A public television program titled "Breaking The Bank", a production of television station WGBH of Boston, was in progress. According to the program, Continental Illinois of Chicago, the eighth largest bank in the United States, backed Pen Square Bank in Oklahoma City. When Penn Square Bank went broke Continental Illinois suffered greatly, but because of its international connections, it survived for a time. But what happened to this bank within the next few months serves as a warning to all of us. We quote from the script of "Breaking The Bank" provided by WGBH: JUDY WOODRUFF (commentator): At the same time, Continental and other American banks were having trouble collecting on loans from Latin American countries who couldn't pay their debts... By the spring of 1984, Continental Illinois was a disaster waiting to happen. Even more than most banks, Continental depended on short-term speculative money from around the world... All it took was a gentle push - a breeze really - too topple Continental... That push was provided by a rumor in New York... reported by a Japanese writer working for the Commodity News Service. According to the story, there was a possibility that Japanese investors might be considering buying Continental... America's proudest banks were ripe for the picking... The report went out over the wire at 3:50 on a Tuesday afternoon... In Tokyo, it was already Wednesday... And it was this story, this rumor, that panicked the currency traders in Tokyo. This happened because of the way world money markets work. To lend money, Continental needed a steady flow of money coming in: about $8 billion a day in mid-1984... Much of this money came in quick, short-term loans, for no more than a day. This is possible only through modern communications. Traders sitting halfway around the world supply money to other traders. They're not trading real money, but sending figures on a computerized screen to people they've never met. It's fast and frantic... and it's all based on trust. Feeding on each others' fears... Japanese traders withheld about $1 billion they normally would have loaned Continental that day... The panic followed the sun. The news that Japanese traders were shunning Continental was waiting for traders when they came to work on London, Zurich, Frankfurt, and the other big European money centers. Now they, too, balked at lending to Continental. As the sun rose on New York, the same thing happened, and finally on Chicago... The realization grew that Continental was near collapse - just like Penn Square Bank two years earlier... The whole banking system is based on trust... on the belief it won't collapse. If a bank as big as Continental were to go under, trust in the entire system could have vanished. And so, within two days - by Friday - the crisis spread to Washington, to the U.S. Treasury. In that city, worried men like FDIC Chairman, William Isaac, and Federal Reserve Chairman, Paul Volcker, began talking of a bailout. Acting quickly, the Fed loaned Continental more than $2 billion. It wasn't enough... And so the nation's 16 biggest banks, led by Morgan Guaranty of New York, rode to the rescue. Meeting secretly over the Mother's Day weekend, the banks agreed to loan Continental $4 1/2 billion. It was a powerful statement of support for Continental - and it failed utterly. Even a total of $7 1/2 billion wasn't enough ... And so, the government took over. The FDIC and the big banks pumped another $2 billion into Continental. More important, they guaranteed all deposits at Continental - not just those under $100,000. Commentator, William Isaac, FDIC Chairman: If we hadn't done what we did, we could have had a severe financial crisis throughout the world. It was as simple as that. I don't know where it would have stopped and I wasn't about to find out. Geoffrey Bell, International banker: A failure of a bank the size of Continental Illinois would have led, without question, to an international banking crisis. (End of quote from "Breaking The Bank".) According to no less an authority William Isaac, FDIC Chairman, the failure of a bank like Continental Illinois, a bank with global computerized banking, could destroy the entire international banking system from Moscow, to Paris, to London, to New york, to Tokyo. All banking, all commerce, all personal checking accounts, all saving accounts could be wiped out everynight. And what would we have to replace the present banking system and the dollar? I think Revelation 13:18 spells it out in great detail! Another example is cited in the August, 1985, edition of the Washington Letter by Jack Anderson. We quote: The banking industry is the backbone of the U.S. economy. Unhappily, the economy has chronic back trouble. ADVICE TO BANKERS: STOP KIDDING YOURSELVES. The nation's nine largest banks each have more than 100 percent of their shareholders' equity loaned out to just four countries with frighteningly shaky economies: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela. If these countries follow the siren song of Fidel Castro and repudiate their debts, the nine big banks would be left with negative net worths, their shareholders would be ruined, and the federal government would have to nationalize the banking system. This is a nightmare that bankers would like to believe will go away when they wake up. But the slow, inexorable penetrating power of inconvenient facts is beginning to register: A sudden event could end up destroying the banking system. What could cause the collapse? Nobody can say for sure... Default on the billions in foreign loans, meanwhile, has been prevented by a series of patchwork 'rescheduling' expedients that have only postponed the ultimate day of reckoning. Consider this: The soviet block and Third World countries have borrowed an incredible $700 billion in the United States and the West... my sources tell me they expect the total to soar past $900 billion by 1990, with interest charges alone coming to $55 billion annually. But let's get back to the possible collapse of vulnerable Latin American economics. This could not only lead to debt repudiation also the destruction of the U.S. banking system. That's not all. Our Latin American neighbors are also essential trading partners, buying about one-fifth of all our exports. Also there is a gnawing fear among top officials that a precipitous deterioration in the Mexican economy would loose a flood of illegal immigrants over the border. And, of course, Cuba and the Soviet Union would do whatever they could to capitalize on the economic misery in Latin America... A confidential report circulating in the Treasury Department warns that the number of problem banks and bank failures will rise to alarming levels in the next few years... catastrophe is a great teacher. According to globalists, the present national political, economic, and banking systems must give way to the wave of the future because there is no turning back. A key to establishing a homogenized unification of mankind under one system is universal, instant communication controlled by computerized economic control. According to an article in the August 26, 1985 edition of U.S. News & World Report titled "Computer' Next Frontiers", the coming computers will be able to listen, talk, see, and come close to reading a person's mind, and tell the individual what he needs to know. They will even be able to read lips, and operate at speeds hundreds of times the speed of present computers. The article concludes: Such developments are close to being available to anyone who wants them, said Charles lecht, who runs a New York City consulting firm. Adds Jack Huehier, head of development and manufacturing at IBM: 'We're just at the beginning. The technology is running like crazy. If we're smart enough to know how to package it and use it, opportunites are unlimited.' Expectations have been raised before by computer proponents but seldom with such confidence. As technology crosses its newest frontiers - and computers acquire the sensibilities of their human user - the grandios claims sound less like exaggeration and more like prophecy. There is a new breed of globalists rising to the forefront who manifest no conscience as far as the collaps of the current banking and economic system is concerned. They envision a new age emerging within the next few years whereby all national political, and economic system, and possibly religions, will merge into one huge global system. Quoting again from the article, "The New Global Game": As the global game heats up, so much is at stake that, in Europe and Asia, thee is growing sentiment for 'Japan Inc.' arrangements - that is, governments and corporation joining forces to work their will on the rest of the world... Conscious strategy or not, it does seem that U.S. policymakers have awakened to the fact that they must begin viewing the world in global economic terms... If this is mere political window dressing, it nonetheless suggests that Japan has gotten the message that the global game will no longer be played by its rules alone. Perhaps the next message to be delivered is that there is only one earth on which we all live; that all people, their environments, and their econonmics are interconnected; that we can't afford any big loser; and that we all have to win together. If, according to this global prophecy, this is to be, then who is to deliver this message? According to the Bible, this could be the message of a man who will have power over global economics, politics, and religions. This man is identified as the Antichrist: And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their forehead; And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name (Rev. 13:15-17) And who will refuse to become world citizens and worship the Antichrist as God? The answer is given in Revelation 13:7,8, ...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 foundations of the world. How near are we to this day when everyone in the world will be ordered to worship the Antichrist as god in order to get a code mark or a number to work, buy, or sell?... We cannot say. Current economic and political news indicates we may be nearer than most care to believe. The important question for each person is, "Is my name written in the Lamb's book of life? Have I received Jesus Christ as my Saviour and LORD?!
