The coming New World Order is always an active topic and there has been some discussion recently of the writings of Malachi Martin, a former Jesuit and professor at the Vatican's Pontifical Biblical Institute. He might be described as an important element in Pope John Paul's propaganda machine.
For your edification, I recommend you read 'The Keys of This Blood'. Martin's well-informed writings deftly analyze the geopolitics of the Millennium endgame and reveal Pope John Paul II's far-reaching assessment of the three-way contest between the Communists, International Jews, and the Roman Catholic church for control of the NWO, and world domination.
According to Martin, the communists see the NWO as the logical evolution and maturity of socialism whereby God is materialism, and His power, technology, through the Party-State. The communist design envisages all military and security matters would be in the hands of the Communist Party of the World located in the new Eden of Moscow. It would also take charge of the cultural value system of the NWO which will emphasize human worth and human qualities. Religion will be banned. Education will be a lifelong revision and reinforcement of Leninism, with its emphasis of the individual's total dependency on the overall directorate of the CPW and cleanse all ideas about any inalienable rights of the citizen superior to the State.
The ambition of the Transnationalists and Internationalists is at the determination of the international money men whose ambition is to re-establish the kingdom of Israel. This to them is purely world domination and control. The nation of Israel, the Law and Old Covenant are but useful tools to build this new empire which knows no national bound and has no god but mammon. Skillful manipulators, these successors of the Chazars who adopted Rabbinic Talmudism under king Bulan in the 7th century after Christ and are Gentiles, wholly unrelated to Israel either by birth or by the Law and prophets.
Their influence in the affairs of men is amply demonstrated through history in the French, German and Russian revolutions, as well as communism, the UN, and the Napoleonic, First and Second World Wars where they found it profitable to support both sides.
Finally there is the Universal Roman church, seen as the one truly supranational, supracontinental, supra-trade-bloc structure that would not have to undergo any essential structural change in order to retain its dominant position and to further its global aims.
According to Martin, 'the originally Christian mind in the West nations was so far eroded already, that capitalist nations were persuading themselves that they had to be content with the conviction that the purpose and meaning of all of life is 'life' ... which is patriotic without being nationalistic, socially responsible without being socialist, and respectful of human rights and those of all creatures without calling itself Christian'. And back in 1965, Pope Paul VI said that 'the church had decided to opt for man; to serve man, to help him build his home on this earth. Man with his ideas and his aims, man with his hopes and his fears, man in his difficulties and sufferings' - that was the centerpiece of the church's interest, said the Pontiff.
Like the other contenders, the Roman church recognizes that out of the present internationalism there cannot come any level of thought and structure beyond what democratic egalitarianism supplies. And that same democratic egalitarianism in itself gives no opening for a consideration of a geopolitical structure within which all different member states could be assimilated to one model. In the NWO democratic election of high officials would be impossible.
As a Catholic, and mouthpiece for his Pope, Martin views this power-play from the natural perspective. Bible students know Rome WILL rule the NWO, but this NWO our present Federal Government is working so hard to foster will NOT come in until AFTER the end of the Gentile dispensation.
It is LATER than you think. Christians seek to build no visible continuing city here on earth, but look for a City whose builder and maker is God. We know there can be NO peace until the Millennium, AFTER the destruction of all life on earth.
There is not a great deal to distinguish between these three contenders who are all materialistic, possess an opprobrious past, and are morally tarred with the same broad brush. But as the Pope recognizes, there are realistically no other contenders, and it will be winner-take-all.
The Gentile dispensation ends with a massive earthquake sinking Los Angeles and much of California. This spells the collapse of the US dollar. California contributes around 25% of America's GNP. Business throughout the world is based upon the US dollar, and the wealthiest nations have much of their capital invested in assets in the USA . Their value is dependent upon the strength of the US economy and dollar so they CANNOT afford to allow it to collapse and be replaced by new debt-free currency. It would break them. Therefore there will be an alliance reached between Rome, the International Jews and the USA to refinance the US dollar.
As Jacob had to make alliance with Esau when he was returning to the Promised Land, the International Jews will need to make an alliance with the Gentiles after THEY reach a place of no more repentance, when the 144,000, like Jacob, are returning to the place of their Covenant.
After this earthquake strikes America a deadly blow, Russia will attack, and invade mainland USA, (and aid an attack upon Israel by the Muslim nations). Through the UN, of which Vatican City State is a member, the Pope (then incarnate), will bring peace.
Revelation 13:4 says, 'And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him'? Revelation 17 explains how she rules all the nations of the earth and holds the wealth of the world through her alliance with the world's bankers. Eventually she will control the world's commerce and they'll worship and serve the beast, or get nothing.
The church has NOT recognized her day. Like Israel back in her promised land, she doesn't know HOW she got back there. National force put Israel in her homeland. National force will put the church in the World Council of Churches. But the Power of God ... "My Word is Spirit and It is Life" will put the true Church or Bride in her place, 'cause she will recognize her position in the Word; then she's in Christ".
Revelation 13 shows the power of the Roman Catholic Church and what she will do through organization. The whore riding on the scarlet beast distinctly shows her power is the god of force (Satan) and not our God, the Lord Jesus Christ. Verse 17, emphatically shows that she will gain absolute control of the commerce of the earth, for no man can buy or sell apart from her. This is borne out in Revelation 18:9-17 which shows her involvement with kings, princes, merchants, all of whom have to do with Rome and commerce.
In Revelation 13:14, we learn that the beast spreads his influence through the image which was built for him. The image that is made is a world-wide ecumenical council, wherein all the organized churches will get together with the Roman Catholics (they are doing it even now). It is quite possible this union will come in order to stop the power of communism. But since communism like Nebuchadnezzar has been raised up to burn the flesh of the harlot, Rome will be overcome and destroyed. Take note that everywhere the Roman church went, communism followed'.
Daniel and Jesus have already prophesied Rome will win this contest. Corrupt politics through the UN and a confederacy of apostate Protestant churches, will cause the United States by military might and her dollar (once it has been refinanced by alliance between International Jews and the Vatican) to exercise all the power that the beast had before it, and FORCE the will and religion of Rome upon the world. The mark of the beast.
According to Revelation 17:3, Rome is controlling this last world power. 'So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman SIT upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns'. Another union of church and state as John explains in the remainder of the chapter by expounding the mystery of the seven heads and ten horns, in perfect correspondence to Daniel 2: 40-45 and 7:20-24, which describe the NWO union of East and West - the two legs of the image Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream in THIS day of the ten toes of iron and clay.
According to John 13:27, when the hour of the Prince of Darkness had come, Satan himself entered into Judas, and directed him to his fearful crime. So when the last great masterpiece of the Adversary shall appear, the Antichrist, whose coming, as Paul tells us, is after the working of Satan, and to whom the Dragon shall through organization, give his power, and his throne, and great authority (Revelation 13:1-18), it will be led by Satan incarnate. The beast spreads his influence through the image was built for him -- the World Council of Churches.
It is indeed timely that Malachi Martin should express the Pontiff's planning so thoroughly. His purpose is to appraise the world's population of the termination of the world systems and cultivate opinion-leaders who will dispose others favourably toward Rome. This book gives the man or woman of faith a Spiritual adrenalin rush of stimulation by revelation when right before our eyes Rome discloses she is fulfilling precisely what Daniel and Jesus prophesied and confirms what the Bible said she would do in THIS day.
