by Rev. N.W. Hutchings
Globalism, by definition, is the envisioned utopian state of
mankind whereby all national and international barriers, now
separating the human race into various nations, are eliminated. When
these barriers are eventually liquidated, all peoples on earth will
subscribe to one religion, one system of economics, and will give
allegiance to one world government. As long as present world
economic, religious, and governmental barriers remain, this
globalistic estate cannot be achieved.
According to the Prophetic Word of God, Satan, during the last
seven years of this present age, will make a supreme attempt to bring
about a global world so he can forever add this planet to his own
kingdom (government) and prevent the return of Jesus Christ: And it
was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them:
and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are
not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation
of the world... And he had power to give life unto the image of the
beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that
as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bon,
to recieve a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that
no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of
the beast, or the number of his name (Rev. 13:7,8 15-17).
In the Bible it is prophesied that in the last days one man will
be given governmental power over all nations, regardless of race,
religion, or language. This man will also enforce a common system of
economics; no individual will work, buy, or sell except by state
permission. There will also be one religion - everyone will worship a
new god, the Antichrist, or be killed.
Regardless of the utopian promises of the internationalists, one-
worlders and globalists, there is no way to tear down existing
national, economic and religious barriers except through a process of
universal execution. For example, there is no way to attain a
marriage between communism and capitalism; no way leaders of the free
world and the communist world will agree on a common govenment; no way
Moslems, Jews, Buddhists and Christians will meet in communion,
brotherhood and assemble except under penalty of death. In order to
attain a globalist society, Satan will offer a new age, a new world
not tied to political systems, economics, or gods of religions rooted
in ages past. Even so, how many still will refuse, under sentence of
death, to deny their country or their god? The Prophetic Word
indicates hundreds of millions, and possibly billions, will die in war
or by state execution for the witness of Jesus... (beheading in
In considering the evolution of the global concept for mankind,
we begin with God's blessing upon Noah and the patriarch's seed after
the Flood. God then divided the human race into nations, according to
the seventy grandsons of Noah. According to Genesis 9, Acts 17,
Romans 13, 1 Timothy 2, and many other Scriptures, God established the
nations according to race, colorc language and then set the bounds of
these nations. These different peoples, according to God's will, were
to appoint rulers to establish governments. The primary
responsibility of government is to maintain social order through the
administration of justice; to wit, protection the innocent by
diligently prosecuting the guilty - the ultimate penalty being death
for murder. The secondary responsibility of government is to grant
every citizen freedom of religious expression, whereby each individual
is given the opportunity to know the truth that Jesus Christ is both
Lord and Saviour of all who believe in Him. The purpose for dividing
the world into nations was to prevent the spiritual contamination of
all mankind as had occurred before the Flood.
From about 2450 B.C. until 1945 A.D. (a period of approximately
4400 years) the world, for the most part, operated within the
political framework outlined in God's ordinance for human government.
It is true some nations rose and fell; some became aggressors and
consumed other nations. But in the course of time, these empires fell
and national boundaries were restored. However, at the beginning of
the 20th century. a prophecy of Daniel had a pivotal effect on the
future course of history: But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and
seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro,
and knowledge shall be increased (Daniel 12:4). Steamships, trains,
telegraph, radio, television, etc... the world suddenly became smaller
and smaller. Through increased knowledge, along with development of
rapid communications and faster methods of travel, nations thoughts of
miles apart suddenly became next door neighbors! An undesirable
consequence of the fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy is wars increased
in size and intensity.
After World War I, many of the world's most profound
intellectuals and politicians concluded nations must resolve their
problems and differences without war or mankind eventually would be
Thus, the League of Nations, and international forum for
representation from all nations, was formed to meet and peacefully
settle national conflicts without ware. The United States did not
join the League of Nations, because at that people did not want to
relinquish any degree of national sovereignty. Most nations that
became members only gave "lip service" to the organization, much for
the same reason.
Nevertheless, the seeds for the international community of
nations was planted. These seed were carefully nurtured by
individuals like John Dewey in the American educational system.
Just two decades after World War I, came World War II. The
second world war exceeded the first world war many-fold in both scope
and casualties. Even though the framework for a new international
forum of nations had been laid. World War II ended with the explosion
of two atomic bombs over Japan. This dramatic and awesome ending to
the most destructive war waged on planet earth served as proof to
internationalism advocates that international institutions must be
established, or man surely would destroy himself and all other living
Presto, the League of Nations was reborn under a new name -The
United Nations. Birthed with the United Nations was a host of other
international social, political, and economic entities which were to
help bring UN membership into a trusting, interdependent,
international relationship. Just a few of these organizations are:
International City Managers' Association; International Control
Commission; International Court of Justice; International Monetary
Fund; International Peace Corps; and the International Trade
Since 1945 there have been a series of major wars (Korean War,
South Vietnam War and other serious political and economic struggles
with the Communist world) in which the United States has played the
"international good-neighbor" role to the hilt. Through the
International Monetary Fund, the U.S. gave gold to other nations;
through the Marshall Plan, it built up its most deadly foes, Germany
and Japan, into major, industrial comepetitors; and through retention
of its United Nations membership, it bor the bore burden of cost while
being constantly attacked by at least three-fourths of the UN
In our schools we are allowing the disciples of internationalism
to indoctrinate our childred with their gospel. Dr. C.M. Pierce,
Harvad University, stated at a convention of teachers in Denver,
Colorado in 1973: Every child in American who enters school at age
five is mentally ill, because he comes to school with allegiance
toward our elected officials, toward our founding fathers, toward our
institutions, toward the preservation of this form of government...
patriotism, nationalism, sovereighty... All of that proves the
children are sick, because the truly well individual is one who has
rejected all of those things and is what I would call the true
international child of the future. Professor Pierce and other
internationalism advocates did not understand that internationalism
would be short lived. While the course of mankind, in the economic
and political sense, has been directed mainly through the channel of
internationalism since 1945, today it is the throes of death.
Internationalism has given way to Globalism. Those who equate
internationalists with globalists make a serious error. Even the
League of Nations - now the United Nations, and related agencies like
the International Monetary Fund, recognize the existence of nations.
Globalism acknowledges no boundaries, either national or
international. While modern Paul Reveres have been running up and
down the street shouting, "The Internationalists are coming!", the
globalist wolf has entered our kitchen through the back door and eaten
our lunch. For the first time in history, why do foreign investors
and industrialists own more property in the United States then
Americans own in other countries? Why can't President Reagan reverse
the balance-of-trade deficit that has now exceeded $150-billion a
year? Why can't the American auto and steel industries be protected
against lower-price foreign imports? The answer to all of these
questions is galloping globalism. To illustrate, we quote from the
July 8, 1985 edition of Industry Week, from an article titled "The Now
Global Game, One World-One Market": The world economic order created
and sustained by the Industrial Revolution, and brought to its keenest
cutting edge following World War II, is fading. Old power structures,
alliances, and consumer values - all the old gods that underpinned
international politics and global competition - are being reshaped.
And the forces driving these changes - including advanced
communications system - have set in motion some far-reaching economic,
political, and psychological tremors. In the accompanying paranoia,
nations have resorted to fingerpointing, grumbling, and veiled
threats. And tensions are certain to grow as the new 'global game'
unfolds. Thomas Campbell, a Stanford University law professor, sees
the world steadily drifting toward a paralysis of trade. 'It could be
as severe as the which fueled the Great Depression,' he warns. 'The
world is on the verge of reverting into hostile camps. All the
efforts that nations have made since World War II in opening up trade
are now in peril. 'Charlies L. Brown, chairman of AT&T Co., also sees
the world at a crossroads.
'We can follow an expansive approach and seek increased
international cooperation,' he says. 'Or we can opt for a restricting
approach and withdraw behind the walls of protectionism and national
At stake in all of this is the future of the 'global'
corporation, which scholars view as distinct from the multinational
The global corporation, they point out, tends to view the world
as a homogenous market rather than a collection of separate markets
with unique requirements. Professor Theodore Levitt at Harvard
Business School, one of the most respected marketing minds in the
country, has long been a champion of the global corporation and the
'globalization' or markets. 'What we are dealing with here,' he
declares, 'is a implacable force; a tide and not a wave.'
While we weep not at the grave-site of internationalism, at
least the internationalists professed to have a concern for the poor
and underprivileged in all nations. While tears of the international
one-worlders for suffering humanity are mostly of the crocodile
variety, the globalists do not even pretend to have a conscience. Who
cares if a million auto workers lose their jobs in the United States
because of lower priced imports? Their loss will balance out against
a gain in the Orient or Europe. Here is how the global game works as
we quote again from the article in Industry Week: "The only playing
card that some countries have is their pool of low-cost labor, but
with factory automation, this is becoming less of a bargaining chip.
Moreover, the spread of technology has created a worldwide labor
pool - one in which workers in one country actively compete for jobs
with workers elsewhere. A case in point: workers in Barbados now earn
$2.50 an hour keypunching data into American Airlines computers.
Previously, the task was done by 200 U.S. workers in Tulsa, who
earned $6.50 an hour."
Because of expanding global technology, communications, and
investment interests, worker in one country can, by the flick of a
switch, take over jobs being performed by workers in another country.
American Airlines saved $6,400 a day by having workers in
Barbados do the same job that workers in Tulsa were doing. This was
made possible through a world-wide, computerized communication
But what about the workers in Tulsa? What will happen to them?
A few may find employment elsewhere, but most will experience a
difficult period of financial adjustment. This difficult situation in
Tulsa is being multiplied many times over in other cities, and it will
continue to worsen unless American workers are willing to adjust to a
global work scale. The article in Industry Week points out within the
next 15 years an additional 600 million, trained workers will enter
the global work force. Because it will be suicidal for workers to
strike, unions will become a thing of the past. Necessity will bring
about an equalization of the wage scale on a global basis under the
global economic system, the only recourse for industry and workers in
the United States is a tariff on imports and foreign services.
However, for reasons we later explain, protectionism will bring
foreign banking reprisals that could possible result in total economic
It also stands to reason, and the globalism article in Industry
Week contends, global economics is bringing with it serious political
and psychological changes. The word, psychological, is often
substituted for religious. While global advocates do not overtly
declare man lives by bread alone, they do contend the food on the
family table determines a man's political views. And, according to
Revelation 13, men will one day be forced to worship the Antichrist as
god in order to get it!
There already is developing an alarming global control of labor,
industry, commerce, banking and communications. Today, we see a giant
step taken to that point when every person will be under the control
of a single authority, and all will work, buy, and sell using numbers
for names and code marks for identification and exchange values.
According to the Bible, the bringing on of such a global society will
result in more deaths than claimed in all past wars in history. But
for Christians this is an even greater reason to discern the 'signs of
the times' and be prepared for our Lord's return.
As we continue discussing "Galloping Globalism", a prophetic
overview relating to Bible projections, keep in mind internationalism
and globalism are separate entities. As previously stated,
internationalism entails the cooperation of nations on an
interdependent basis; globalism recognizes no national borders or
The United States' economic system traditionally is based on
capitalism, commonly referred to as "free enterprise." But when
Americans speak of "free enterprise" on an ultimate, global scope.
The chief apostle of global free trade and commerce is Milton
Friedman. Mr. Friedman's dissertation on economics appears in major
newspapers, magazines, and television production. We quote from an
article by him titled "Protectionism Won't Cure U.S. Trade Imbalance"
(Human Events, 8/17/85): Producers in many industries - including
auto, steel, and textile - have been telling Congress that they need
higher tariffs, tighter import quotas and other trade impediments...
they say they cannot compete with foreign producers. They cite as
'proof' our $100 billion plus-excess of imports over exports... The
chief sufferers would be U.S. consumers and export industries, notably
agriculture. Rather than raising our trade barriers, we should be
lowering them... Some jobs are lost in export industries or in
industries competing with imports. Those are visible. More jobs are
gained in other parts of the economy... What should we do? The best
solution would be to dismantle all trade barriers over a brief
transition period... say five years... to give the affected industries
a chance to adjust.
While Mr. Friedman is considered to be a 'purist' by economic
conservatives, what he actually preaches is global economics. He
advocates the abolishing of all national barriers against free trade
and commerce throwing the world markets open to the best goods and
services offered at the lowest price, whether the producer is located
in Japan, the Common Market, or the Soviet Union. And what Mr.
Friedman carefully avoids is the contemporary wage scale and the
standard of living of the average American worker. There is no way
the U.S. auto industry can produce and automobile with $20.00 an hour
labor that will compete with a Japanese automobile made with $10.00 an
hour labor. The same reality applies to shoes made in Italy;
electrical household appliances made in South Korea; or garments made
in Hong Kong and Singapore. If there are to be no trade barriers and
and a global economy, then as a globalist state, there also would be a
global economy, then as a globalist state, there also would be a
global standard wage, meaning U.S. workers in key industries would
have to take huge cuts in wages.
President Reagan has threatened to introduce protectionist
measures against Japan and the Common Market in December of this year.
The question is - Can he do so without an accompanying collapse of the
banking industry and a related political, global revolution? We quote
again from the article "The New Global Game" (7/8/85 edition of
Industry Week): Other segments of the financial community are jumping
on the bandwagon. Talks are underway to link the stock exchange of
New York, London, and Tokyo. Observes Harvard's Prof. Levitt:
One of the most powerful and yet least celebrated ways in which we
see commerce being driven toward global standardization is through the
monetary system and the international investment process.' Japan
leaped into global finance with both feet. Of the ten largest
international banks, five are Japanese, three are American, one is
British, one is French. But for all the power, the world finance has
a less tangible impact on countries than the location of plants and
the production and distribution of goods. So the use of world-
shrinking technology by giant manufacturing companies... is more
likely to give nations continuing migraines. 'Countries are in charge
of territory,' points out David B. Abernathy, professor of political
science at Stanford.
'Huge companies pose a challenge to national sovereignty.' The
article continues to point out that possibly by 1990, global economics
will control the political and psychological complexion - probably
meaning the religions, of all nations. It should also be noted that
many references are made to international banking being an integral
part of the new economic and political order. To cite a speciffic
example of the parasitic relationship of international banking to
global economics, we refer to the case of Penn Square Bank of Oklahoma
City, located about two miles north of the offices of Southwest Radio
Church. Penn Square Bank was a thriving and progressive banking
establishment. Its primary investments were in the oil industry and
related energy companies. Suddenly there was a world oil glut;
thousands of drilling efforts shut down. The mortgages and notes held
by Penn Square became worthless; the bank went bankrupt almost
On May 28, 1985, I was in San Francisco to meet our tour group
heading for the Orient. While waiting in a hotel room, I turned to
Channel 9 on local television. A public television program titled
"Breaking The Bank", a production of television station WGBH of
Boston, was in progress. According to the program, Continental
Illinois of Chicago, the eighth largest bank in the United States,
backed Pen Square Bank in Oklahoma City. When Penn Square Bank went
broke Continental Illinois suffered greatly, but because of its
international connections, it survived for a time. But what happened
to this bank within the next few months serves as a warning to all of
us. We quote from the script of "Breaking The Bank" provided by WGBH:
JUDY WOODRUFF (commentator): At the same time, Continental and
other American banks were having trouble collecting on loans from
Latin American countries who couldn't pay their debts... By the spring
of 1984, Continental Illinois was a disaster waiting to happen. Even
more than most banks, Continental depended on short-term speculative
money from around the world... All it took was a gentle push - a
breeze really - too topple Continental... That push was provided by a
rumor in New York... reported by a Japanese writer working for the
Commodity News Service.
According to the story, there was a possibility that Japanese
investors might be considering buying Continental... America's
proudest banks were ripe for the picking... The report went out over
the wire at 3:50 on a Tuesday afternoon... In Tokyo, it was already
Wednesday... And it was this story, this rumor, that panicked the
currency traders in Tokyo.
This happened because of the way world money markets work. To
lend money, Continental needed a steady flow of money coming in: about
$8 billion a day in mid-1984... Much of this money came in quick,
short-term loans, for no more than a day. This is possible only
through modern communications. Traders sitting halfway around the
world supply money to other traders. They're not trading real money,
but sending figures on a computerized screen to people they've never
met. It's fast and frantic... and it's all based on trust.
Feeding on each others' fears... Japanese traders withheld about
$1 billion they normally would have loaned Continental that day...
The panic followed the sun. The news that Japanese traders were
shunning Continental was waiting for traders when they came to work on
London, Zurich, Frankfurt, and the other big European money centers.
Now they, too, balked at lending to Continental. As the sun rose on
New York, the same thing happened, and finally on Chicago... The
realization grew that Continental was near collapse - just like Penn
Square Bank two years earlier...
The whole banking system is based on trust... on the belief it
won't collapse. If a bank as big as Continental were to go under,
trust in the entire system could have vanished. And so, within two
days - by Friday - the crisis spread to Washington, to the U.S.
In that city, worried men like FDIC Chairman, William Isaac, and
Federal Reserve Chairman, Paul Volcker, began talking of a bailout.
Acting quickly, the Fed loaned Continental more than $2 billion.
It wasn't enough... And so the nation's 16 biggest banks, led by
Morgan Guaranty of New York, rode to the rescue.
Meeting secretly over the Mother's Day weekend, the banks agreed
to loan Continental $4 1/2 billion. It was a powerful statement of
support for Continental - and it failed utterly. Even a total of $7
1/2 billion wasn't enough ... And so, the government took over.
The FDIC and the big banks pumped another $2 billion into
Continental. More important, they guaranteed all deposits at
Continental - not just those under $100,000.
Commentator, William Isaac, FDIC Chairman: If we hadn't done what
we did, we could have had a severe financial crisis throughout the
world. It was as simple as that. I don't know where it would have
stopped and I wasn't about to find out.
Geoffrey Bell, International banker: A failure of a bank the size
of Continental Illinois would have led, without question, to an
international banking crisis. (End of quote from "Breaking The Bank".)
According to no less an authority William Isaac, FDIC Chairman,
the failure of a bank like Continental Illinois, a bank with global
computerized banking, could destroy the entire international banking
system from Moscow, to Paris, to London, to New york, to Tokyo. All
banking, all commerce, all personal checking accounts, all saving
accounts could be wiped out everynight. And what would we have to
replace the present banking system and the dollar? I think Revelation
13:18 spells it out in great detail!
Another example is cited in the August, 1985, edition of the
Washington Letter by Jack Anderson. We quote: The banking industry is
the backbone of the U.S. economy. Unhappily, the economy has chronic
back trouble. ADVICE TO BANKERS: STOP KIDDING YOURSELVES.
The nation's nine largest banks each have more than 100 percent
of their shareholders' equity loaned out to just four countries with
frighteningly shaky economies: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and
If these countries follow the siren song of Fidel Castro and
repudiate their debts, the nine big banks would be left with negative
net worths, their shareholders would be ruined, and the federal
government would have to nationalize the banking system. This is a
nightmare that bankers would like to believe will go away when they
wake up. But the slow, inexorable penetrating power of inconvenient
facts is beginning to register: A sudden event could end up destroying
the banking system. What could cause the collapse? Nobody can say
for sure... Default on the billions in foreign loans, meanwhile, has
been prevented by a series of patchwork 'rescheduling' expedients that
have only postponed the ultimate day of reckoning.
Consider this: The soviet block and Third World countries have
borrowed an incredible $700 billion in the United States and the
West... my sources tell me they expect the total to soar past $900
billion by 1990, with interest charges alone coming to $55 billion
annually. But let's get back to the possible collapse of vulnerable
Latin American economics. This could not only lead to debt
repudiation also the destruction of the U.S. banking system. That's
Our Latin American neighbors are also essential trading partners,
buying about one-fifth of all our exports. Also there is a gnawing
fear among top officials that a precipitous deterioration in the
Mexican economy would loose a flood of illegal immigrants over the
border. And, of course, Cuba and the Soviet Union would do whatever
they could to capitalize on the economic misery in Latin America... A
confidential report circulating in the Treasury Department warns that
the number of problem banks and bank failures will rise to alarming
levels in the next few years... catastrophe is a great teacher.
According to globalists, the present national political,
economic, and banking systems must give way to the wave of the future
because there is no turning back. A key to establishing a homogenized
unification of mankind under one system is universal, instant
communication controlled by computerized economic control. According
to an article in the August 26, 1985 edition of U.S. News & World
Report titled "Computer' Next Frontiers", the coming computers will be
able to listen, talk, see, and come close to reading a person's mind,
and tell the individual what he needs to know. They will even be able
to read lips, and operate at speeds hundreds of times the speed of
The article concludes: Such developments are close to being
available to anyone who wants them, said Charles lecht, who runs a New
York City consulting firm. Adds Jack Huehier, head of development and
manufacturing at IBM: 'We're just at the beginning. The technology is
running like crazy. If we're smart enough to know how to package it
and use it, opportunites are unlimited.' Expectations have been raised
before by computer proponents but seldom with such confidence.
As technology crosses its newest frontiers - and computers
acquire the sensibilities of their human user - the grandios claims
sound less like exaggeration and more like prophecy.
There is a new breed of globalists rising to the forefront who
manifest no conscience as far as the collaps of the current banking
and economic system is concerned. They envision a new age emerging
within the next few years whereby all national political, and economic
system, and possibly religions, will merge into one huge global
Quoting again from the article, "The New Global Game": As the
global game heats up, so much is at stake that, in Europe and Asia,
thee is growing sentiment for 'Japan Inc.' arrangements - that is,
governments and corporation joining forces to work their will on the
rest of the world... Conscious strategy or not, it does seem that U.S.
policymakers have awakened to the fact that they must begin viewing
the world in global economic terms... If this is mere political window
dressing, it nonetheless suggests that Japan has gotten the message
that the global game will no longer be played by its rules alone.
Perhaps the next message to be delivered is that there is only one
earth on which we all live; that all people, their environments, and
their econonmics are interconnected; that we can't afford any big
loser; and that we all have to win together.
If, according to this global prophecy, this is to be, then who is
to deliver this message? According to the Bible, this could be the
message of a man who will have power over global economics, politics,
and religions. This man is identified as the Antichrist: And he had
power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the
beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship
the image of the beast should be killed. And he causth all, both
small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in
their right hand, or in their forehead; And that no man might buy or
sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the
number of his name (Rev. 13:15-17)
And who will refuse to become world citizens and worship the
Antichrist as God? The answer is given in Revelation 13:7,8, ...and
power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations, And
all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him whose names are not
written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundations of
How near are we to this day when everyone in the world will be
ordered to worship the Antichrist as god in order to get a code mark
or a number to work, buy, or sell?... We cannot say. Current economic
and political news indicates we may be nearer than most care to
believe. The important question for each person is, "Is my name
written in the Lamb's book of life? Have I received Jesus Christ as
my Saviour and LORD?!
