One of the characteristics of Tribulation period foretold in the books of Revelation and Daniel is that of a global government. Most scholars believe that this will center on the European Continent and many thought that the European Union would be the vehicle to accomplish this.
However, watching the European Union try to form, and the hurdles that have had to be overcome where nations have had to try to subvert the will of their people, I’m beginning to believe that it will take the Rapture of the church in order to fully allow for a global government.
Gideon Rachman, of the Financial Times of London, claims that he is not a conspiracy theorist, and yet he believes that he sees the signs of global governance on the horizon. He states in his article that he could see a global government coming out of the European Union’s model, but he sees some hurdles– basically that most free societies have not readily accepted joining the Union. The people’s will has had to be subverted in order to accomplish the ends.
What does Mr. Rachman believe has helped the cause?
These problems, he says, are international problems and cannot be solved on a national basis.
It is for this reason that I believe that when the World-wide Rapture of the church occurs this will be yet another global crisis. And I can see a governmental misinformation campaign with the goal of convincing the public that it was not the Rapture of the church, but some other cause– perhaps a bad outcome of global warming?
Until then, I don’t believe that I can see a situation where the United States or other democratic nations go willingly into a place where they’re subservient to another government. I mean, I believe that President-Elect Obama believes that we need to be more of a part of the “global community”, but I don’t believe that he would or could move to erase our national sovereignty.
