SIH STSTA ICONOver the past 20 years or so, we have heard much said about a “New World Order”.  Especially GHW Bush, the president of the United States had much to say about the subject.  Other presidents, as well, spoke outwardly about this subject… listen to the last 4 presidents in their own words…

The word of God has much to say about the concept of a New World Order (NWO)…. We will be studying the NWO and it’s Biblical implications in a four part series…

1. Part #1 – The NWO – What is it? – Will it take place?

2. Part #2 – Past attempts at forming a NWO by force (The 7 World Empires)

3. Part #3 –  Past attempts at forming a NWO by consensus (The Tower of Babel)

4.  Part #4 –  The Future NWO – Is the Lord pleased?

In this first section of our study we will be answering these questions…

What is meant by the phrase “the New World Order?”

Based on Bible prophecy will the New World Order ever take place?


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. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. (Rev 13:7-10)


We’ve all heard the phrase, “The New World Order” or “The One World Order”, but do we really understand what this phrase is talking about?  Is it simply a harmless concept of world unity to bring about peace, or does this phrase refer to something that displeases the Lord and endangers us as the United States of America, and as individual citizens of our country?

New World Order defined…  (Please note… I have, on purpose, omitted definitions of NWO that is presented by conspiracy theorists.  For purposes of this study, the mainstream definitions of NWO will suffice.)

“the post-Cold War organization of power in which nations tend to cooperate rather than foster conflict.”

“any period of history evidencing a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power”

“a vision of the world in which greater peace and stability is achieved through a new political order following the end of the cold war.”

“a political situation in which the countries of the world are no longer divided because of their support for either the United States or the Soviet Union and instead work together to solve international problems”

Based upon the above definitions, my understanding of the meaning of New World Order (NWO), has these basic parts to it…

  1. some type of political unity between nations
  2. this unity is brought about by an exercise of authority
  3. the desired results of this unity are
    1. less conflicts
    2. dramatic changes in political thought
    3. dramatic changes in national power
    4. greater harmony and agreement between nations
    5. greater prosperity between nations (military, economic, social)
    6. the solving of international problems

This sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it?  To unify all the nations so that there is no more wars, no more social injustice, and basically, no more disagreements.  Who would want to oppose that?

The principle sounds pretty good and for those who are fans of a NWO there is even better news… in our texts, it will take place…

And it was given unto him… 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… Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. (Rev 13:7-10)

See also (Dan 7:21-25, Dan 11:36-39)

There is coming a day, I believe not too far into the future, the world is going to be put under a unified authority.  The identity of the authority is under much debate, but one thing we know for sure… when this takes place, Satan will be the ultimate authority. (Rev 13:1-6)


The answer our original questions…

What is meant by the phrase “the New World Order?”

Simply put it is:  a political unity between nations, that results in less conflict and instability by working together to solve the problems of the world.

Based on Bible prophecy will the New World Order ever take place?

Absolutely, according to Rev 13:7-10 (and many other verses) the Bible makes it plain that this NWO will take place in the not so distant future.

The basic concept of a NWO has existed throughout the ages of mankind, beginning with the Tower of Babel; followed by the different world empires extending from the Egyptian Empire to the Roman Empire; and extending into today’s time.  The concept of the NWO is nothing new.

In our next study will we look at the different forced attempts for a NWO brought about by the ancient world empires (Egypt to Rome).  Were they successful?  What was Lord’s response to their attempts?

  1. What about the United Nations, isn’t that a form of political unity, economic development, solving international problems?

    • Rob Barkman says:


      You bring up a really good point. Absolutely, the UN is an attempt to bring about worldwide national unity. My opinion is that the UN is a forerunner of the New World Order. It is performing a very important role by acclimating the world’s popualtion to the idea of world-wide unity and co-operation. A few differences are:

      1. The NWO will have one leader to which all the nations will submit. The UN is a group of nations that retain their sovereignty and VOLUNTARILY agree to act together only when it is in their own best interests.

      2. Also, the NWO’s most central purpose is to be a united force against the Lord and those who minister for Him. Supposedly, the UN’s central purpose is to work for the good of mankind. (I realize that this can be greatly debated but, by theory, that is the UN’s role.)

      Great comment, thanks alot,
      May the Lord bless you,

  2. wadingacross says:

    Yup, the last four presidents have been globalists. They and their cadres on both sides of the aisle in the White House and in Congress have had zero problem putting us on this track.

    On a related note, I encourage you to read Joel Richardson’s, “Antichrist: Islam’s Awaited Messiah”. Read this in correlation to your studies/thoughts on the NWO.

  3. Paul says:

    Thanks for writing and sharing this important subject as there is evident everywhere about the sign of the time we are living in. There is this talk in the world of unity like global economy, one world government, and even one world religion that all religion worship the same god (New Age). It is like glueing all the scattered pieces that was done at the time of the Tower of Bable, now reemmerging as the New World Order. It will be something new, something that will be unprecedented in human history. With the help of global communication and with various global networking, it will make it all possible for the one (anti-Christ) to fulfill his destiny as was prophecized.

    • Rob Barkman says:


      Thanks for the comment. I really can’t add much to what you say. I agree fully. Thanks for bringing up the New Age religion, I am along the same lines with you on that one. I think it probably be the basis of the NWO unified religion that will emerge as time continues on. May the Lord continue to bless you, brother. Rob

        Wait a minute are you (Rob) the author of this article. If so, I do believe in this 100 percent, but I believe in God 100x more. Now with that being sais it seems that God is saying he does not want us to fight back when these people come to kill us. Is that correct? Is that what your trying to say also. The reason I ask is because I WILL BE FIGHTING WITH A SWORD OR WHATEVER I CAN FIND. When has God not ever wanted his people to defend their selves. I mean my heart is sold on defending I will not just surrender my life for no reason without a fight. My question is (am I against God) because death is everyone option nobody gets out alive.

        • Rob Barkman says:

          “Now with that being said it seems that God is saying he does not want us to fight back when these people come to kill us. Is that correct?”

          I’m sorry I am not sure where you see this idea in the passages we looked at. Keep in mind, Christians will be taken up before the one world order gains control of the world. This is one reason why all the nations will be submitting to their rule and opposing Christ as He returns to the earth. If I have missed something in your question please feel free to explain in more details what texts you are asking about. I’ll be glad to answer more fully then. Lord bless you. Thanks for the comments and questions.

  4. Hi Rob

    This promises to be very interesting. While some would approach this topic with all guns blazing, you have approached it sensibly.

    It doesn’t seem a long time ago that the majority of people were more in favour of decentralising government, but I would have to say that even among the general population there seems to be a movement towards a world government. This is a complete about-face in a short time. I know that we WILL have a world power and I can’t help thinking that satan is already working towards this by convincing the common people of the need.


    • Rob Barkman says:

      I can see it coming as well. As things get worse in the world-wide economy, the world is being slowly persuaded that a one world government is the solution. We are told it is the only way to rid ourselves of the debt between nations, the uneven playing field of trade, and the exchange differences of the various national currencies. It all sounds so good.
      All these arguments for a NWO is worldy and temporal in nature, that’s why I think it’s important to get a spiritual perspective on all these things. The most important issue is what does the Lord desires.
      Thank you for the kind words, glad you are looking forward to the study. May the Lord continue to bless you.
