Wouldn’t it be great if we could all get along? If there were no more fights between factions over who was more right…
no more class struggles between the haves and the have nots…
no more discrimination or judgmentalism on how and where we chose to live or what we chose to believe…
no more poverty or hunger as everyone shared what they had with everyone else…
and everyone had free education…
a living wage and health care?
Sounds heavenly, right?
Our children are taught from pre-K thru college and graduate school that these things are all rights that every human is entitled to. While some or maybe all of them sound great, every society on this earth that has tried to implement all these things has failed, or is in the process of failing. And we’re not talking just “oh well, that didn’t work”, we’re talking total bankruptcy, massive inflation so people could no longer afford a loaf of bread, entire cultures and ways of life taken away, and millions imprisoned or killed for not keeping in lockstep with the mandated “group think” necessary to maintain such a society.
We crave Unity with every fiber of our being, desiring it so much that we fail to ask, “unity with whom, over what?”
The whole world is offering all such unity, all the goodies, where all can live in “utopia”—only problem is, they are explicit in this:
The God of the Bible can have no place in it.
So, today’s program is about globalism, and why Christians should fight it.
Table Talk Notes
Genesis 11:1-9 | Now the whole earth had one language and the same words.
And as people migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there.
And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar.
Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.”
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built.
And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.
Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
So the Lord dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.
Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth. And from there the Lord dispersed them over the face of all the earth.
First off, what’s your worldview? Does Man have the solution to the world’s problems, or is he the cause? Is Man basically good, or evil?
Globalism: (dictionary.com) “The attitude or policy of placing the interests of the entire world above those of individual nations.”
(from Wikipedia) Manfred Steger distinguishes between different globalisms such as justice globalism, jihad globalism, and market globalism (free markets).” “The word itself came into widespread usage, first and foremost in the United States, from the early 1940s… “The term “globalist” has been used a pejorative for political enemies who are perceived as too “cosmopolitan” or favoring international projects over national ones.
While no country in the world today can completely “go it alone” and become isolationists, what organizations like the United Nations, the European Union, the World Trade Organization and others seek is something far beyond mere “cooperation” between nations.
So what is behind the pursuit of Globalism?
Humanism: Man is basically good, so we don’t need God
Pursuit of Utopia: we want the Garden of Eden without God’s rules
George Soros & the UN: desire for a “One-World Government” and religion
What is being used to achieve Globalism?
Mass Immigration (illegal and legal), destroying national cultures and identities, spreading Islam and destroying Christianity.
Education (public pre-k-12 and colleges/universities)
“Indoctrination” by Colin Gunn
Hollywood, media, unions non-profits, churches & government
“Agenda” by Curtis Bowers
And lastly, eliminate the one super-power in the world that promotes liberty with a culture based on Judeo-Christian values.
What is it all designed to do?
Separate Man from God.

John 17:20-21 | I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
We will be tempted to give up Freedom of Religion for “security” and “peace.”
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. Benjamin Franklin
1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 |Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
Ezekiel 13:8-16 | Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Because you have uttered falsehood and seen lying visions, therefore behold, I am against you, declares the Lord God.
My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and who give lying divinations. They shall not be in the council of my people, nor be enrolled in the register of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the Lord God.
Precisely because they have misled my people, saying, ‘Peace,’ when there is no peace, and because, when the people build a wall, these prophets smear it with whitewash, 11 say to those who smear it with whitewash that it shall fall! There will be a deluge of rain, and you, O great hailstones, will fall, and a stormy wind break out.
And when the wall falls, will it not be said to you, ‘Where is the coating with which you smeared it?’
Therefore thus says the Lord God: I will make a stormy wind break out in my wrath, and there shall be a deluge of rain in my anger, and great hailstones in wrath to make a full end. And I will break down the wall that you have smeared with whitewash, and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation will be laid bare. When it falls, you shall perish in the midst of it, and you shall know that I am the Lord.
Thus will I spend my wrath upon the wall and upon those who have smeared it with whitewash, and I will say to you, The wall is no more, nor those who smeared it, the prophets of Israel who prophesied concerning Jerusalem and saw visions of peace for her, when there was no peace, declares the Lord God.
In the last days, Believers will be killed by the Antichrist if they don’t leave God and worship him instead.
Rev 13:5-17 | And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven.
Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation, and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain…
Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.
Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed.
It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people, and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.
Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.
