The One World Government Part I

"1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech..... 6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." Genesis 11:1,6

This article shows that the world is moving rapidly to a One World Government. The world is being divided into four major regions. These regions are the European Union (EU), Americas, Asia and African Union (AU). These regions are modeled after the European Union which used the following steps to create their region. These steps are free trade, open borders, single currency, Central Bank, Court of justice, peacekeeping force or regional defense. Some of these are done in order and some are done in parallel to complete the goal of four major regions.

1. Region 1 - European Union


The first region is the European Union which has 15 members today. They have fulfilled all the main steps and are establishing a New Constitution which will have a future EU president. The EU president in the future that will rule the world will be the antichrist. The current member nations are Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Britain, Denmark, Sweden and Greece. The European Union is adding ten new members in May 1, 2004. In an article titled "European Union bids 10 nations welcome", subtitled "But it's Iraq war that dominates group's meeting" (Note 1) states "At a ceremony in the cradle of European democracy, Cyprus, Malta, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia signed treaties that will bring them into the European Union on May 1, 2004. The 10 joining nations will bring 75 million people into the EU-- raising its population to 450 million. The newcomers' wealth ranges from barely 29 percent of the EU average in Lithuania to 85 percent in Cyprus" In another article titled "EU could run from Moscow to Morocco"(Note 2) states "Romano Prodi, the president of the European Commission, has sketched out an ambitious plan for the next stage of European Union enlargement which could see the trading block run from Moscow to Morocco. Mr Prodi said yesterday he would like to see the EU surrounded by a 'ring of friends' with whom it would share 'everything but institutions.' Among the areas he envisages could become common ground for such associate members would be free circulation of people, economic trading space and equal access to health care. The massive expansion is viewed by the EU president as the logical step of the current enlargement programme which will see ten candidate countries, including Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary, join the union in 2004. 'My idea is to have a ring of friends from Russia to Morocco, including Mediterranean countries such as Israel and Egypt ... and to share with them everything but institutions,' he said." Notice the nation of Israel is in the enlargement plan for the EU. The Bible shows this expansion in Daniel 8. In Daniel 8:9 it says "And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land." The little horn in this passage is the antichrist and the pleasant land is Israel as shown in Jeremiah 3. In Jeremiah 3:18-19 it says "18 In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers. 19 But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me."

The European Union which is the Revived Roman Empire will expand as far as God will allow it to expand. In Revelation 17:17 it says "For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil His will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled." For more information on the Revived Roman Empire see the May/June 2001 edition of The Prophetic Messenger newsletter and read the article titled "The Revived Roman Empire."

2. Region 2 - Americas

The second region is the Americas which has 34 nations today. These nations are Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, United States, Uruguay and Venezuela.

a) Free Trade
In an article titled " Latest News From Venezuela and Latin America", subtitled "The Next NAFTA: Free Trade Area of the Americas"(Note 3) states "Feb. 3: Next November, Miami will host the VIII Free Trade Ministerial, including countries from Canada to Chile, paving the way for the Free Trade Area of the Americas. The FTAA, envisioned to be completed by 2005, eliminating tariffs between the 34 member countries, seeks to create a free trade area of 800 million consumers, drastically surpassing the biggest common market, the European Union with 370 million.......The FTAA would provide for an increase in exports to Latin America of US$200 billion over the next 10 years. The treaty is comparable to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which includes Mexico, Canada and the U.S., and has brought an annual gain in savings between US$1,260 and US$2,040 for an average American family of four, according to the U.S. Trade Representative Office. A major benefit of the FTAA will be its ability to create jobs nationally and internationally as domestic and Foreign Direct Investment increase. In the case of Central and South America job creation is not only a means of fostering growth, but also a tool to shift labor away from drug manufacturing, inextricably tied to terrorist movements that continue to plague the region. The belief behind the FTAA is that as economies improve, the accomplishment of important reforms such as the rule of law, increased transparency, human rights and anti-corruption initiatives is more attainable.

b) Open Borders
The borders are being opened for trade in the Americas just as the European Union has open borders today. The Mexican border was open through the trade agreement NAFTA. In an article titled "Premiers, Governors Promote Open Border", subtitled "Red tape, security delays blamed for fall in Canada-U.S. border traffic" (Note 4) states "North America will lose out to Europe in the new global economy unless Canada and the United States open their border, delegates to a gathering of New England governors and Eastern Canadian premiers said today. North America is hampered by red tape at the border while other parts of the world are erasing barriers, said the leaders attending the opening session of the two-day annual conference.....Meanwhile, companies in the European Union benefit from free circulation of goods through open borders. There's no reason North America can't enjoy those same privileges, said Maine Gov. Angus King. 'It doesn't make any sense to me that you can now drive without slowing down between France and Germany -- two countries that have had a whole handful of wars in the last couple of centuries,' King said 'and you have to go through an interrogation at the longest peaceable border in the history of the world.'" In another article titled "Landry Sees More Fluid Canada-U.S. border" (Note 5) states "the economies of Canada and the United States could fall behind that of the European Union if the two countries do not work together to encourage a freer flow of trade, goods and culture across the border, Quebec Premier Bernard Landry warned delegates of the conference of New England governors and Eastern Canadian premiers.....Mr. Landry told delegates that the creation of a common currency (the euro) and eventual free trade borders across Europe 'will force us, Americans north and south, to create something similar'..... One U.S. governor said it is becoming increasingly evident that the United States and Canada have no choice but to become even closer in the ever-growing global economy. Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Almond said that all of New England is looking toward future that includes a more open border."

c) Single Currency and Central Bank
We are now seeing a push for a common currency for the Americas. In an article titled "Landry Calls for Currency Union in the Americas" (Note 6) states "Quebec's premier says it's time Canada dumped its currency and built an economic union from Alaska to Chile. Bernard Landry has long touted a common currency for North America, based on the current European model. But he now suggests Canada and the U.S. join all of Central and South America in a one trading and currency bloc....But Landry says in today's economy, an Alaska-to-Chile partnership is needed to better compete with the European Union." In an article titled "Alcan Calls for Common Currency with U.S.", subtitled "Volatility distorts profit"(Note 7) states "Alcan, Inc. has become one of the first major Canadian companies to call for a common North American currency, after bearing the brunt of analysts' criticism that foreign exchange movements were distorting its earnings. Geoffery Merszei, the company's chief financial officer, said yesterday Alcan would favour such a policy but had no expectation that a move toward a single currency was imminent. 'A common currency would take away a lot of the exchange-rate volatility Alcan must deal with as the world's second-biggest aluminum group, simplify our accounting and improve our ability to plan forward,' he told a company risk management briefing. 'Even so, we don't see any near-term probability of a single currency and it's not part of our strategic planning now.'" In another articled titled "El Salvador Begins Using U.S. Dollar as Country's Currency", subtitled "Countries facing chronic inflation hope use of the dollar will stabilize economies"(Note 8) states "Salvadorans kicked off the new year Monday with a new dollar-based economy and mixed feelings as to whether the greenback will improve life in this impoverished Central American nation. The Central Bank sent millions of dollars around the country to prepare for the new rules, which allow the dollar equal status with the national currency, the colon, for buying goods, paying salaries or doing business.....Critics say it limits national sovereignty, reducing the ability to respond to local economic problems. Panama---Central America's richest nation--has long used the dollar. Ecuador adopted it in September. Argentina has pegged its own peso to the greenback. Guatemala plans to adopt the dollar alongside its quetzal on May 1." In another article titled "A Common Currency for the Americas?"(Note 9) states "As Finance Ministers of the Western Hemisphere meet in Toronto in early April to discuss economic conditions and future investment climates in the lead-up to the Summit of the Americas in Quebec City, some may ponder the idea of a common currency. If negotiations on a hemispheric free trade agreement go ahead after the Summit, why not broaden the agenda to include a common currency for the region? There are several good reasons why a hemispheric common currency let's call it, for the sake of argument, the 'Amero' is a bad idea. The disadvantages to Canada, and the countries of Latin America, of giving up their national currencies far outweigh the potential benefits. Proponents of the 'Amero' argue that the Europeans have shown us the way. After eradicating all other barriers to the movement of goods across borders, they merged their national currencies to form the Euro. As a result of currency union, trade and investment among members of the European Monetary Union is expected to grow by leaps and bounds....Moreover, the Euro is a new currency created by Europeans who agreed to abolish their national currencies and establish a new European Central Bank. The management of the Euro and the ECB is based on agreed principles and involves the collective participation of all its members. In the Americas, the only conceivable arrangement acceptable to the United States would be an extension of the Federal Reserve System (the US central bank) to the rest of the hemisphere. Canada, for example, might become the 13th Federal Reserve District (and the Bank of Canada would morph into the 'Federal Reserve Bank of Ottawa'). Power over the Federal Reserve System would continue to be tightly controlled from Washington, under its Board of Governors and its Chairman (currently Alan Greenspan), all of whom are appointed by the US President. Under this scenario, there would be no new common currency like the Euro. The US dollar would, in effect, be the 'Amero'. Monetary policy, which affects interest rate levels and availability of credit, would be determined in Washington by the Federal Reserve Board, primarily in response to US economic conditions and policy objectives. The Federal Reserve Bank of Ottawa would be reduced to writing reports on the distressed conditions facing farmers in Saskatchewan. Similarly, a Federal Reserve Bank of Buenos Aires might focus on the high unemployment rate among Argentine workers. Both would vainly hope that Washington pays attention." We see from all these articles that just as the Euro came into Europe, the 'Amero' or 'Eagle' or whatever the name will be will come into the Americas with the Central Bank being the Federal Reserve Bank.

d) Court of Justice
Through all these trade agreements there is also a move to change our laws to align with the one world government or global governance laws. A recent supreme court decision shows a shift in our highest court in the nation. In an article titled "Justice: Can Constitution Make it in Global Age?", subtitled "On TV, Breyer wonders whether it will 'fit into governing documents of other nations' (Note 10) states "In a rare appearance on a television news show, Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer questioned whether the U.S. Constitution, the oldest governing document in use in the world today, will continue to be relevant in an age of globalism. Speaking with ABC News' 'This Week' host George Stephanopoulos and his colleague Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Breyer took issue with Justice Antonin Scalia, who, in a dissent in last month's Texas sodomy ruling, contended the views of foreign jurists are irrelevant under the U.S. Constitution. Breyer had held that a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that homosexuals had a fundamental right to privacy in their sexual behavior showed that the Supreme Court's earlier decision to the contrary was unfounded in the Western tradition. 'We see all the time, Justice O'Connor and I, and the others, how the world really it's trite but it's true is growing together,' Breyer said. 'Through commerce, through globalization, through the spread of democratic institutions, through immigration to America, it's becoming more and more one world of many different kinds of people. And how they're going to live together across the world will be the challenge, and whether our Constitution and how it fits into the governing documents of other nations, I think will be a challenge for the next generations'.....O'Connor, too, seemed to suggest in the ABC interview that the Constitution was far from the final word in governing America. Asked if there might come a day when it would no longer be the last word on the law, she said: 'Well, you always have the power of entering into treaties with other nations which also become part of the law of the land, but I can't see the day when we won't have a constitution in our nation'......The current court is split between Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Clarence Thomas and Scalia, who tend to hold the traditional constitutionalist approach to rulings, and the majority of O'Connor, Breyer, Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginzburg, David H. Souter and John Paul Stevens, who tend to believe in the concept of a 'living Constitution' subject to changes in public opinion and interpretation." Notice justice O'Connor's statement that the signing of treaties with other nations "which also become part of the law of the land." Here are just a few web pages that show how our laws are changing through treaties with other nations. They are the following: www.summit-americas.org,www.ftaa-alca.org, 207.21.242.176/coa/publications/index.html and www.counciloftheamericas.org/coa/membersnetwork/ARPArticle1.html.

e) Peacekeeping Force or Regional Defense
There are also plans for a peacekeeping force or regional defense in the future. In an article titled "Mexican Defense Minister to Discuss Possible Joint North American Military Force"(Note 11) states "Mexico's defense secretary, Gen. Gerardo Vega, was flying to Washington on Thursday to discuss military cooperation that might link U.S., Mexican and Canadian forces against terrorism in a way that NAFTA has linked North America's economies. The plan apparently is based on a U.S. Army War College report in 1999 that suggested a North American peacekeeping force that would be headquartered in the United States but include command posts that would rotate between Mexico and Canada. 'One of the programs the general will discuss in the United States is a continental command that would use the North American Free Trade Agreement as a basis,' a Defense Department spokesman said. Department policy required him to speak on condition of anonymity."

3. Region 3 - Asia

The third region is Asia which has 21 nations today. These nations are Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua-New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Chinese Taipei (Taiwan), Thailand, United States, Vietnam. Their web site at www.apecsec.org.sg/ shows Korea meaning the South and North become one nation just as East and West Germany became Germany in the EU. There are also some nations in more than one region. These are Canada, Chile, Peru, Mexico and the United States. The Asia region is behind the Americas but will eventually establish free trade, open borders, single currency, Central Bank, Court of justice and a peacekeeping force or regional defense.

a) Free Trade and Open Borders
The Asia region is known as APEC or Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation. APEC is looking to establish free trade and open borders by 2005. In an article titled "APEC focuses on terrorism, N. Korea", subtitled "Leaders at the Asia-Pacific economic forum promise to coordinate efforts with 'a series of concrete steps" (Note 12) states "Top officials from the 21 members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum issued a series of joint declarations-- a blueprint on conducting more efficient and safer trade in a world of disappearing economic borders.....APEC members had widely supported the proposal, though some developing nations worried they couldn't afford to implement it so quickly. The declaration said such common standards would be put into place by 2005 'whenever possible'..... The declarations came after APEC foreign ministers and later heads of the state spent days discussing the impact of terrorists acts on their individual economies and efforts to open trade borders in a new age of security..... North Korea's nuclear-weapons program and U.S. threats of war against Iraq also dominated the weekend summit of the 21-member group, created in 1989 mainly to promote free trade among economies of the Pacific Rim."

b) Single Currency and Central Bank
The common currency for the Asia region will be the Yen with the Central Bank in Japan. Just as the Americas will use the United States currency with a new name, the Asia region will use the Yen with possibly a new name. In a speech titled "Economic Prospects for the Americas Under a New Financial Architecture"(Note 13) by Michel Camdessus, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, he states "In a related area, I see an increasing need for deepening the commitment to intensified cooperation among the leading industrial countries in the interests of balanced growth and international monetary stability. Increasingly we see the emergence of a tripolar system of currencies, reinforced by the recent launch of the euro, and yet the economic performance of the three currency areas remains quite unbalanced. Quite rightly, domestic concerns will remain uppermost in each country's decision-making, but, since decisions taken at home inevitably reverberate around the world, what we need is stronger cooperation between these three major currency zones, for they cannot ignore their responsibilities for maintaining the stability of the global monetary system." Notice this article was dated June, 1999 showing a world with three major currency zones which are today the Euro, Dollar and the Yen.

c) Court of Justice and Peacekeeping Force
If you visit their web site at www.apecsec.org.sg/ , you will see that the treaties signed will establish new laws for the Asia region just like in the Americas region.

In the future, when wars continue to be fought against nations, the Asian region will establish a peacekeeping force to keep peace in the region.

4. Region 4 - African Union or AU

The fourth region is the African Union which has 53 nations today. These nations are Algeria, Angola ,Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Congo Dem. Rep, Côte d´Ivoire, Djibouti, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana,Guinea Conakry, Kenya, Lesotho Kingdom of, Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic, São Tomé and Príncipe, Senegal Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland Kingdom of, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe.The African Union is in the beginning stages founded in 2002. In an article titled "Africa Hopes for New Beginning"(Note 14) states "The first summit of the African Union has opened in Durban, South Africa, amidst flamboyant celebrations and calls for a new beginning for the troubled continent. South African President Thabo Mbeki, the first chairman of the AU, called the new organisation a chance for Africa to take its "rightful place" in global affairs. The new organisation is intended to be people-orientated, in contrast to the "dictators' club" of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) which was formally wound up on Monday." The AU founded in 2002 listed the goals of this region. These goals are: to attract foreign investment, spread democracy, establish a peacekeeping force, have a Central bank, a Court of justice and a single currency. In another article titled "Huge challenge for African Union" (Note 15) states "It will not be easy to achieve the African Union's goals of economic progress and good governance, United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan, has warned....On Tuesday, the OAU will be relaunched as the African Union (AU), which is supposed to be more people-orientated, in contrast to the "dictators' club" of the OAU....The new 53-member AU is loosely modelled on the European Union and will have the right to intervene in the affairs of its member states, in cases of genocide and war crimes." We see from these articles that the African Union or AU will be hard to establish with the many dictators leading their nations.

Memory Verses

As Christians if we want to live in victory and if we want to be able to share the Word Of God with others we must know the Word of God ourselves. Let's see what the Bible says about this. "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." Psalm 119:11. " If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." John 15:7. "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed." John 8:31. We encourage you to put the following scriptures in your heart: Romans 2:16, Proverbs 21:16, I Peter 3:17, Psalm 150:6, II Corinthians 9:7, Isaiah 40:29, Acts 5:39, Isaiah 33:17, Zephaniah 1:18, Matthew 5:6. Use only the Old King James version of the Holy Bible. (If you have any questions about this please see the book New Age Bible Versions, by G.A. Riplinger ©1993, ISBN 0-9635845-0-2.)
