The Genesis of Revelation 18

Terry James
By Terry James

People of planet earth have begun the march into the abyss of the consummation of human history. This declaration, of course, is not the view of the globalists who are charting for humanity a future engineered totally by themselves.

Their blueprint for a new and improved world order has been put on a fast track by America’s new president. And, as anyone with true observational powers not dulled by day-to-day dumbing-down inculcation can see, the changes are not conducive to securing the blessings of liberty.

Mr. Obama let it slip – probably deliberately — when answering a question by the man now known as “Joe the plumber.” Then-candidate Obama told us that he would be about “spreading the wealth around.” He caught a lot of flak for that revelation of his anti-free market, pro-socialism intentions. He backed off, hemmed and hawed, but never disavowed his intended course of action once elected president.

President Obama has more than stuck to his socialist agenda at every opportunity. The result for U.S. citizens and their progeny into the future as far as one can peer is debt that will almost certainly be the sort that enslaves.

The week just past was cause for anyone who cares about this republic to stiffen to attention. A segment of the fourth estate – the news media — has, in effect, joined to government as a propaganda arm for the purpose of inculcating all of us with the supposed advantages of the administration’s behemoth socialized medicine program.
“On the night of June 24, the media and government become one, when ABC turns its programming over to President Obama and White House officials to push government-run health care - a move that has ignited an ethical firestorm!

Highlights on the agenda: ABC NEWS anchor Charlie Gibson will deliver WORLD NEWS from the Blue Room of the White House. The network plans a prime time special - 'Prescription for America' - originating from the East Room, [that] exclude[s] opposing voices on the debate. Late Monday night, Republican National Committee Chief of Staff Ken McKay fired off a complaint to the head of ABC NEWS:

Dear Mr. Westin: As the national debate on health care reform intensifies, I am deeply concerned and disappointed with ABC's astonishing decision to exclude opposing voices on this critical issue on June 24, 2009… I believe that the President should have the ability to speak directly to the American people. However, I find it outrageous that ABC would prohibit our Party's opposing thoughts and ideas from this national debate, which affects millions of ABC viewers…” (“ABC Turns Programming Over to Obama; News to be Anchored from Inside White House,” 6/16/09, http://drudgereport.com/flashaot.htm).
The elitists who would stifle debate and cause all, great and small, to come under their governance are, of course, not limited to the borders of this nation. They have big plans – and in my view what will become monstrous plans — on a global scale.
“French President Nicolas Sarkozy has warned of political and social unrest unless there is greater regulation of the globalised economy. He argued that the current system of ‘speculation and dumping’ cannot continue. ‘We have to overhaul everything,’ he said. He called for a larger role for social institutions in financial regulation. The president was speaking in Geneva at the invitation of the International Labour Organization (ILO).


‘Regulation of globalisation is the central issue,’ he argued. Either we have reason or we will have revolt. Either we have justice or we will have violence. Either we have reasonable protection or we will have protectionism.’ ‘It is irresponsible to believe that the financial markets can continue to impose their obsession with short-term profit on the entire global economy, and on society,’ he added…” (“Sarkozy raps globalised economy,” BBC News, 6/16/09).
The elitists around the world, ostensibly to bring a new financial order so that we can all find economic peace, have planned a defined corridor that leads to economic bondage. So, we consider the prophetic Scriptures to see if any such future might lie in wait for America and the world. As a matter of fact, there lurks precisely such a time for some future generation, according to prophecy given the prophet John.

The prophecy John was told to write foretells a commercial system that has totally divided mankind. It indicates the haves vs. the have-nots in a way more profound than did the Marxist dialectic portray the schism. The end product of this new economic order developing today at an unbelievably frenetic pace will, God says, enslave a planet of earth dwellers. Its fiery consummation will come swiftly, and without remedy:
“And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men” (Rev. 18:9-13).
We are seeing in this pretribulation dispensation the beginning of the final development of this system that will be destroyed by God’s holy wrath in one hour. It is indeed time to lift our heads and look up, for our redemption draws near.

***Special Request from Terry***

I ask that you lift me in prayer before the Throne this week while I interview with The History Channel for one of a series of documentaries on prophecy.

Please pray that Power from on High be given me while I answer the questions presented - that the answers be the Lord's and not mine. These are crucial times, and we must take every opportunity to forewarn of things to come. More than that, of course, we must lift the Holy Name of Jesus, so the lost can see clearly to come to Him for forgiveness, and Redemption. Thank you, in advance for your prayers.
