The climate alarmists of our day would have us believe that a grave environmental crisis exists; one that requires immediate and drastic action in order to save the planet. The leaders of the United Nations tell us that the solution requires all nations to submit to a central government, a New World Order.
The UN's strategy for resolving the climate emergency consists of seventeen goals that fall under their Agenda 2030. These objectives, however, go far beyond protecting the environment. They call for a Marxist type of government that distributes wealth evenly among all nations and all people.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) refers to this redistribution of wealth as the "Great Reset." The quote below comes from the Fox Business website regarding the WEF's meeting in June 2020:
We're still in the earliest phase of the Great Reset. The full plan won't be rolled out until January 2021, when the World Economic Forum will host its annual meeting in Davos. But the framework of the plan is clear: By combining many of the money-printing strategies endorsed by Modern Monetary Theory economists with global Green New Deal-like policies and corporate cronyism, the elites at the World Economic Forum can effectively control economic activity on a scale that has never been achieved.
The words "effectively control economic activity" sound remarkably similar to the words of Revelation 13, which describe how the beast, the antichrist, will control all the buying and selling worldwide.
Agenda 2030 and its United States' equivalent, the Green New Deal, are the engines behind the coming economic control that the elite globalists plan to impose on the world. The Marxist nature of these programs is slavery by any other name.
THE CHILLING DETAILS OF THE GREEN NEW DEAL
According to Wikipedia, "The Green New Deal (GND) is a proposed package of United States legislation that aims to address climate change and economic inequality."
A Washington Post article on February 11, 2019, reports that the GND resolution calls for a "10-year national mobilization" with the following as its key goals that focus as much on wealth redistribution as on the environment:
Guaranteeing a job with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States.
Providing all people of the United States with - high-quality health care; affordable, safe, and adequate housing; economic security; and access to clean water, clean air, healthy and affordable food, and nature.
Meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources.
Repairing and upgrading the infrastructure in the United States, including by eliminating pollution and greenhouse gas emissions as much as technologically feasible.
Upgrading all existing buildings in the United States and building new buildings to achieve maximal energy efficiency, water efficiency, safety, affordability, comfort, and durability, including through electrification.
The GND legislation leaves no aspect of human life outside the realm of government control. Its description on the CNN website provides a frightening and chilling depiction of just how the elite would control all areas of our lives under the GND.
With implementation of the GND, a totalitarian government would guarantee the well-being of everyone in the United States. It would regulate all aspects of one's employment, housing, healthcare, availability of food, and of course clean up the environment (a secondary objective of the plan). It would ensure equal outcomes for all with the elite choosing the nature of such "outcomes." Does this not sound a little bit like being in prison?
The response of the world to COVID-19 has given the globalists confidence that they can control people through fear. Might there be climate lockdowns in the world's future under the guise of saving the planet from an impending environmental catastrophe? Some are already talking about just a scenario.
Mariana Mazzucato, a University College London economics professor who is a member of the U.N. Committee on Development Policy recently wrote the following, "Under a 'climate lockdown,' governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban consumption of red meat, and impose extreme energy-saving measures, while fossil-fuel companies would have to stop drilling."
Despite what he said in the debate, Joe Biden and the Democratic Party fully support the GND and will work for its full implementation should they prevail in the election this November.
THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE GREEN NEW DEAL
Tom Hughes, in a recent prophecy update, played a video from the World Economic Forum (WEF). It portrays the future as a wonderful utopia free of pandemics and all threats to our environment. The leaders of WEF fail to point out, however, the pain and suffering that will come from the move away from fossil fuels they envision under the UN's Agenda 2030 and its US counterpart, the GND.
The planting, maintaining, and harvesting of crops requires a tremendous amount of fossil fuels. Beyond that, the food would never make it from the farms to our grocery stores without diesel fuel powering millions of trucks as well as a numerous trains. And without fuel, it would be a very long walk for most of us to get our food home from the store. Alternatives do not exist for all the fuel needed to support all the activities needed to meet the demands of even a fraction of population in the US or in the world.
Below is what I wrote in my chapter on the climate alarmists for Lawless-The End Times War Against the Spirit of Antichrist (due for release this month, October 2020) concerning the consequences of the GND should it become law:
God designed the world to sustain the large population we have today. This may sound highly controversial, but I believe the Lord provided fossil fuels in the earth for the benefit of mankind. Why else would He have designed the earth with such vast resources of oil, coal, and natural gas and given humanity the knowledge to use it? These resources not only make it possible for food to reach our tables, but for millions of people to survive the harsh winters of the north.
These enormous reserves did not come into being apart from God's sovereign purposes nor did they originate from decaying dinosaurs. It would have required an astronomically high number of decomposing prehistoric animals to create the gigantic reservoirs of natural gas and oil that exist beneath the earth's surface.
Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels says eliminating all fossil fuels would reduce the average earth temperature by .14 degrees Celsius. "That's a very small change for putting humanity back in the Stone Age."
The implementation of the Green New Deal would lead to record high fuel costs and with that soaring and out of control food prices. Those with fixed incomes would have no opportunity to keep up with the skyrocketing inflation. The economic fallout would devastate life in the United States and lead to starvation on a massive scale. As Dr. Michaels said, it just might push us back in "the stone age."
But do not panic; the Lord told us thousands of years ago that this would happen.
BIBLICAL PROPHECY PROVIDES A BIBLICAL CONTEXT FOR THE FUTURE NEW WORLD ORDER
Amir Tsarfati explains how the current climate-change hysteria furthers Satan's agenda for a world government:
The Bible describes the man of sin, the Antichrist, as a man who will have the reins for a world government handed over to him. Involved with this will also be a world religion that will help subject all things under his evil control. The Bible indicates that this man is going to rise from what we now know as Europe (Daniel 7). This climate change hysteria is doing nothing but screaming for the world to let the globalist regime have more control. Eventually, things are going to get to the point where the economic, political, and even religious platforms of the world are going to be right where Satan wants them in order for this man to take control.
The Great Reset championed by the World Economic Forum is nothing new. Both Daniel and the Apostle John prophesied about just such a world government would emerge during the Tribulation (Daniel 7; Revelation 13). The globalists who push for a New World Order act as Satan's minions promoting his agenda to put his man, the Antichrist, in charge of all the nations just as the Bible says will happen in the last days.
Yes, it's exceedingly disheartening to watch the push for a totalitarian world government gain popularity under the deceptive guise of climate alarm. We must keep in mind, however, that not only does the Bible tell us this will happen someday, it provides details of the destruction of Satan's kingdom at the Second Coming of Jesus (Rev. 19:11-20:10).
The Lord Jesus will totally destroy both the antichrist and his kingdom at His Second Coming.
What we see in our world is precisely what the Bible said would happen in the last days; a New World Order of some sort will take finally shape before or during the initial stages of the seven-year tribulation. We already see the planning for this New World Order in the United States' GND, in Agenda 2030 of the United Nations, and in The Great Reset of the WEF. All these programs have the same goal of unifying the world under the control of the elite globalists.
The Great Reset will not be the utopia the WEF advertises it to be; it will enslave all who are alive at the time.
The good news is that we will already be with Jesus in the place He has prepared for us before the antichrist rises to worldwide power (John 14:2-3; 2 Thess. 2:1-8). We will not see the sudden destruction that will kick off the day of the Lord; that is the Lord's promise to us.
For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10)
