SIH STSTA ICONThe 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…

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

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

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

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

THE SCRIPTURE:

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (Joh 16:33)

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.  (Isa 53:4-5)

A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psa 103:1-5)

THE STUDY:

In our previous studies we saw that the Lord was in opposition to all the attempts at a NWO.  Why would this be?

First of all. In many of these cases, those attempting to form a NWO by force, were harming His people.  He would not allow this to take place… Psa 91:14-16

Secondly, to date, every attempt to form a NWO has been motivated by a desire for power, wealth or glory.  The Lord makes it plain that He is the One to be glorified, and honored. (Psa 118:128, Isa 42:8, Isa 48:10-11, Exo 34:14)

To receive glory, honor, and power we are to submit to His Lordship and then allow Him to exalt us according to His will.  We are not to pridefully seek our own exaltation. (Luke 14:11, Oba 1:4, Jer 49:16)

He is the One that gives authority, power and glory. (1 Pet 5:6-7, Psa 89:15-18, Job 36:22)

Thirdly, remember the desired goals for a future NWO are universal peace, prosperity and decreasing of problems worldwide.  And yet, the Lord makes it plain that these are given to mankind from the Lord.  He is the source of these not a NWO in which man can bring them to himself.  (peace – John 14:27, Psa 29:11, Psa 12:5;  prosperity – Psa 1:1-3, 128:1-4, Josh 1:7-8; deliverance from problems – Psa 50:15, 34:1-4, Psa 91:15)

Also, many of these evils that the NWO is hoped to solve, will only be taken from the earth at the coming of Christ. (peace- 1 Thess 5:1-3, Matt 24:5-6, Isa 2:1-4 Isa 65:24-25;  prosperity- Mark 14:7, Deut 15:11, Jer 31:12-13; deliverance from problems – John 16:33,  Jer 8:15, Roms 8:16-19, Rev 21:1-4

THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION

In our texts two basic principles are brought forth…

First, it is a certainty, that due to the fallen nature of mankind, as long as we live in a sinful world there will be trials and troubles.

But, secondly, through the Lord Jesus Christ we can find peace in the midst of the storms of life, and in eternity we will find total deliverance from the trials we face.

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (Joh 16:33)

“A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” (Psa 103:1-5)

How does the Lord bless us as we face our trials and deliver us in the future?  Through His death on the cross, He made the payment for our sins and worked deliverance for us…

“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”  (Isa 53:4-5)

How does sinful man receive the forgiveness of their sins and the promise of an eternity with Him?

Turn from your sins and come before the Lord, and trust only in Him for your salvation.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  (Joh 14:6)

Be it kNWOn unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Act 4:10-12)

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: (1Pe 3:18)

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.  (Rom 5:1-2)

    Hey Rob! Awesome lesson! I listened to you on Youtube this afternoon. I guess I’m in the mood to be preached to! LOL! We had a fantastic Sunday School, and Church Service, that lasted until almost one o’clock and I came home at lunch and listened to you! What a Great Day this has been!
    I keep hearing about all the things going on, and watching the events unfolding. I just keep telling myself, “God is in control”, and I’m ready for whatever comes as long as I have HIM beside me.
    God Bless!

      PJ,

      I am thankful the Lord blessed you… sounds like you were in a mood to be preached to…
      Just wish you would have listened to my message first.. your Pastor sounds like a really good man… I’m sure after hearing him you were already filled up with blessings for the day!
      I’m glad you are reminding yourself about the Lord controlling all things. I find I have to do the same everyday.

      I was joking with my wife that, if I watch TV news for 10 minutes I become depressed and after 20 minutes suicidal LOL. From mankinds point of view, things truly are in a hopeless mess. But thanks to the Lord we can still have hope, He can work miracles and He promises to care for each one of us. What a blessing it is to know we are one of His people.

      Thanks for the encouraging comments.

      May the Lord bless you and your blogging ministry.
      Rob

  2. We see abundant evidence of the move towards a world government – a thought that would not have been tolerated a few years ago. This is just one more sign of the Lord’s soon coming.

    When will a NWO come into existence? I cannot hazard a guess but nothing would surprise me. It is in the Lord’s hands and I am happy to leave it there.

    I long for His coming, but I fear for family and loved ones who do not know Him, and for THEIR sake I hope there is time.

    “Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus”

    • Rob Barkman says:

      Angela,

      You are so right about the NWO not being accepted a few years ago. It is just my theory but I believe the current worldwide economic crisis will be a large motivation for people to accept a one world order. With a NWO you could have all international debts be forgiven and you could basically have all the nations “start all over again” monetarily with a common currency. All it take is for a politically charismatic figure to sell the idea and be prepared to take a worldwide leadership role for all of this to take place. Again, I don’t mean to say I am certain things will take place this way, but it is a theory that seems to be gradually taking place.

      We have to just keep trusting the Lord and allow everything to take place in it’s time.

      May the Lord continue to bless you.
      Rob

  3. Paul says:

    Hi brother Rob:

    When finally the New World Order is realized, then people will say:

    “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. (2 Peter 3:4-6)

    But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (2 Peter 3:7). Will this fire be from the sun?

    At one time, I was watching the History Channel and there was a show that revealed how the planet Mars used to have water. But what happen to all the water? They believe that a strong solar flare might have ripped away Mar’s atmosphere and evaporated all water and life on Mars. Then after I heard this, I quickly remember this Bible verse:

    Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. (Rev 21:1). Can this be? Then will God create everything new again?

    And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” It sounds like everything as we know it, will be erased to start anew.

    Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” (Revelation 21:5)

    Blessings,
    Paul

    • Rob Barkman says:

      Paul,

      Really good verses to help us understand what is going to take place. The Bible makes it plain that the heavens and earth will be destroyed and all made new. The new heavens and earth will be totally without sin. As far as how all of this is going to take place, I’m really not certain, solar flares are a definite possibility. By the way, solar flares are supposed to be on the increase for the next several years. We’ve had directv for over 10 years… yesterday, for the very first time ever, our screen went blank and the satellite signal was lost and a notice came up explaining this was because of a solar flare and the signal would be restored soon. It seems like the solar flares might be increasing already.

      Thanks again for the comment, Paul. May the Lord bless you and your blog. I would encourage all my readers to check your blog out at: CertaintyOfDrawings.BlogSpot.com
      Rob.
