Globalism: Lessons from History

Do you ever feel as though the America you grew up in is vanishing before your eyes? And what do you think of the small group of globalists that are telling us we need to transform America to be more compliant with their new order? As always, the Scripture gives us hopeful insight.

The book of Psalms, chapter 2, warns national rulers of the errors of scheming and assembling together against the Lord: “The kings of the earth band themselves, and the princes [rulers] are assembled together against the Lord, and against His Christ...But he that dwells in the heaven shall laugh; the Lord shall have them in derision.” But by His grace He immediately offers hope: “Now therefore, O you kings, act wisely; be instructed and warned, O you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling. Kiss the Son [bow, pay homage] lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed [happy, fortunate] are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him!”

Throughout the centuries, numerous attempts have been made by men and nations to establish a new world order without God. Each of these attempts has met with failure. Like the withering weeds that Isaiah speaks of in Isaiah 40:23-24, these power hungry leaders have found some real obstacles as they lunged for the golden ring of world power. This knowledge that God knows how to handle the evil conspirators and tyrants of our day, just as He has in the past should encourage Christians worldwide.

The first unified skirmish in man’s rebellion against God followed the Flood. Before this time, every man followed his own will – which set all people except Noah and his family against the plan of God. After the waters of the flood subsided and the world was again populated, mankind united under the banner of Nimrod.

The Bible teaches that all civilization after the universal flood came from Noah’s sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Their descendants migrated southeastward from Mount Ararat to the plain of Shinar (Sumer). Originally, the people had been told by God to go forth and Fill the earth (Genesis 9:1-3). And Genesis 10:5 says that for a time this did happen: “From these the coast land peoples of the Gentiles were separated into their lands, everyone according to his own language, according to their families, into their nations.”
