New World Order--term that makes me shutter! This plan for repressive measures to eliminate any dissent from a socialist/liberal point of view moves forward to disarm and conquer anyone who disagrees with a globalist agenda. Some say that there is an elite group of people working behind the scenes to orchestrate a series of crises to devastate the population so that they can achieve world domination. Wealth and power seem to be their goal. The alleged conspirators plot to create a New World Order through a one-world government. There are a multitude of theories about secret societies plotting to take over governments to control the future. I take solace in the truth that God (The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) is in control. He is Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent. He knows all, sees all, and already has a plan for our future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
The wise writer of Ecclesiastes writes, "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun." (1:9) All we need to do is to look back in history to see a similar plan by the people on the earth in the days of the Old Testament. They all spoke the same language. "Then they said, 'Come, let's build a great city for ourselves with a tower that reaches into the sky. This will make us famous and keep us from being scattered all over the world." (Genesis 11:4 - NLT) God was not happy with their agenda and said, "Come, let us go down and confuse their language so that they will not understand each other. (Genesis 11:7) "That is why it was called Babel--because the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth." (Genesis 11:9)
How do you think the Lord is responding to the behind-the-scenes agenda of those pushing a New World Order? Proverbs 28:22 has something to say about this: "The previous generation has set boundaries in place. Don't you dare move them just to benefit yourself." (TPT) Boundaries were part of God's plans. When the children of Israel were entering the promised land, He gave them specific directions on where their boundaries would be established. (Numbers 34, Deuteronomy 32:8-9)
Christians are told to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." (Mark 16:15) We cannot do this without a firm understanding of our identity--who we are in Christ. The demonically inspired Tower of Babel was meant to keep us from knowing our identity. God made each of us uniquely, and He marked out our appointed times in history and the boundaries of our lands. (Acts 17:26) Author and pastor Rick Joyner wrote, "You can't have true unity without distinctions. God wants us to understand and honor the uniqueness we have. We have to be free to be who we are and how God made us and honor other's heritages and how He made them." Rabbi Jonathan Cahn gives more clarity to the meaning of boundaries through the Hebrew interpretation. "In Hebrews, the word for landmark or boundary is the word "Gebul." It means border or limit, line and parameter. The word for ancient is "Olam." But it doesn't only mean ancient, it also means continuous, everlasting, and eternal. So, the verse could be translated as, 'Do not move the eternal boundaries, the everlasting parameters.' Man is trying to move God's eternal boundaries...We see attempts to redefine the parameters of gender, motherhood, fatherhood, manhood, womanhood, childhood, morality, ethics, right and wrong, the nature of humanity, and the sanctity of life. The Scripture warns that people and civilizations who seek to alter the Lord's everlasting parameters will suffer repercussions."
As Believers in Jesus Christ, we must protect the Lord's boundary lines. It is our responsibility to uphold the standards set forth for us in Scripture. We cannot allow the government or society or our education system to dictate the boundaries for what is right and wrong. We are answerable to the Lord and to keep His standards and truth. We must live as people of God, each with our own assignment to spread the love and truth of the Kingdom of Heaven. This is our call! This is our mandate! We have a sphere of influence where we can take a stand for truth and justice and fight for the preservation of the boundary lines put in place by our Lord. We must see ourselves as soldiers on the battlefield. Let us be encouraged by 2 Corinthians 10:3-5. "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."
