There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
We can't go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We are all a part of God's great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me
The above lyrics is from the song, "We are the world" made famous by Michael Jackson about twenty years ago. I believe this song will be revived not many days from now as the world is going through the worst economic disaster almost to the level of the Great Depression in 1930s.
Every time there is an economic recession, it is affecting only a certain parts of the world but today, it is a global phenomenon. Nations have come together and everytime, you would hear them say, "Let us come together" or "Let us have a unified strategy" to solve this global problem. This scenario plays right into the prophecy of a one world government, to be headed by none other than the Anti-Christ.
King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had this dream and he asked Daniel to interpret...
(Dan 2:31-33) "You looked, O king, and there before you stood a large statue--an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay.
(Dan 2:37-38) You, O king, ...... You are that head of gold. (Babylon)
(Dan 2:39) "After you, another kingdom will rise, inferior to yours. (Persia)
Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. (Greece - Alexander the Great)
(Dan 2:40) Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron--for iron breaks and smashes everything--and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. (Roman Empire)
(Dan 2:41-43) Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay. (THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT)**
(Dan 2:44) "In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. (JESUS REIGN ON EARTH)
** This is the last governing super power of the earth headed by the Anti-Christ. As this United Earth government contains partly iron and partly clay, it is only united temporarily.
(Rev 6:2) I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.
The bow without an arrow signifies a conquest of peace, the Anti-Christ winning the world's minds and hearts through eloquent words! I believe that he would start to wage war after he found that people will start to question his ways of doing things.
(Rev 6:3-4) When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.
In the end, he will gather nations to attack Jerusalem which he will be defeated by Jesus Himself.
When you see the world coming closer together in peace, false peace that is, then you know the end is near. So, do not be surprised that Michael Jackson's song could be used again to get the world together. People today are looking for peace (without God) and truth be told, there would be no lasting peace without God.
No Jesus, no Peace
Know Jesus, know Peace!
