Covid-19 and the New World Order

The End-Time Government
From my biblical studies of the end-times – particularly Daniel 9:24-27 and Revelation chapters 13, 17, and 18 – I believe we are heading toward a new world order. This new world order will not last long – only seven years – and will take the form a one-world government.

Specifically, I believe the Bible teaches of the creation of a world system consisting of but one monetary system, one government (and ruler), and one established religious system. The Bible also indicates there will be pushback against this new world order, but that a huge chunk of planet Earth will nonetheless give its allegiance to it.

The most difficult of these to establish will be the one-world religion. After all, behavior can be legislated and controlled, but the human heart cannot. The second-most difficult aspect of the new world order will be the appointment of one global ruler who will be the most powerful man on the face of the earth (for a very short time).

The least difficult branch to devise will be the one-world monetary system, and I believe the startling events surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic gives us at least a glimpse of how momentum can start building for the new world order.

Nothing Like It
Of course throughout history there have been far greater and deadlier epidemics than the Coronavirus, but one thing which distinguishes this one is the speed in which it has attacked the global economy. With people self-quarantining, there is far less purchasing being done, and business are hurting if not crumbling. People are losing jobs and the government is becoming more and more responsible for supporting them.

For now, at least in the U.S., it looks as though our financial assistance will come through checks – actual currency. However, plans had been floated for “virtual currency” or “digital dollars.” This would entail the government assigning to individuals a digital stipend by which they can make purchases. Of course, the government can control this stipend anyway it sees fit – increasing funds, decreasing funds, or outright depleting an entire account with a single keystroke. We may have ducked “virtual currency” for now, but it is certain to become a reality.

Revelation 13 talks about the mark of the beast (the Antichrist) which people will be pressured into accepting. What happens if they don’t? Eventually, they will most likely be killed. However, verses 16 and 17 tell us exactly what will happen: “It [the “second beast” – the prophet of the Antichrist] also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name” (emphasis added).

Because the Antichrist will be able to control the world’s monetary system, he will be able to control the billions under his jurisdiction. Disobey him, and you don’t eat. (Read my blog: “‘Digital Dollars’: A Last-Days’ Harbinger?”)

Groundwork Being Laid
I believe the Covid-19 pandemic is laying the groundwork for what is to come. Yes, there are likely going to be several steps along the way, each of greater severity, but with the U.S. government throwing open the doors of its financial storehouses, more and more of our citizens will become more and more dependent upon her. Now imagine this scenario being enacted throughout the world.

But what of those nations – and there are many – which are incapable of sustaining themselves. Immense pressure will be placed on the more affluent countries to “share the wealth.” When eventually their assets begin running dry, they will demand help from the world. When this happens, a powerful world leader will suggest that all nations “pool” their financial means into one global currency from which every individual on Earth can be cared for.

I just present a scenario, but one many of us who study end-time prophecy share in one form or another. I don’t believe the current Covid-19 crisis is the catalyst which will usher in the new world order, but I believe it could well be the stimulant which begins wetting the appetites of those who fancy themselves as the architects of history’s final era before the return of Jesus Christ to planet Earth.
