The cosmic struggle
For many years believers in the Lord have recognised that
something strange was taking place in the world as they watched odd policies
being conducted by governments worldwide. These plans appeared to be deliberate
in the selling out of the sovereignty of each country one by one.
We are excited to quote in part herewith from an article
taken from the Prophetic Observer, Southwest Radio Church Ministries, January
2001, Brotherhood of Darkness.
"The story you are about to read is incredible but
true. It is about secret societies, how they have directed the course of
civilisation and influence your life. Most don't realise they exist, they have
been conditioned to reject any thought of such organisations.
Manly P. Hall was cited as "one of the tish. Rite
Journal referred to him as "Masonry's Greatest Philosopher."...
Whenever you look at the back of a dollar bill you see their emblem, but you don't
realise that it represents the Mystery Religions of antiquity.
After fifty years of historical studies, I have become
convinced that it is impossible to grasp what is taking place today without an
understanding of the secret societies...
Schlesinger revealed the little-known fact that both Winston
Churchill and Harry Truman were dedicated to world government...
Most have forgotten the things that happened during Truman's
presidency. First, he signed the United Nations Charter, knowing full well that the
U.N. was designed to become the government of the world. Then he ceded
control of Eastern Europe and China to the communists, and when the public began
to question why he had betrayed hundreds of millions of people to a life of
slavery, he plunged us into a no-win war in Asia. When General MacArthur told a
congressman that he wasn't allowed to win the Korean War, President Truman
relieved him of his command...
The names of most of the men who have tried to unite the
world are well known: Nimrod, Nebuchadnezzar, Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great,
Julius Caesar, Napolean, Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao. On the other hand, very
few people associate the name of Rhodes with the current effort to establish a
world government. In 1877, Rhodes laid out his plan to unite the world under
AngloSaxon rule. He knew he would never live to see it completed, but he
dedicated his life to that cause, and he recruited others to carry on after his
death. Rhodes has done more to unite the world than many other man. As a student
at Oxford University, he attended John Ruskin's inaugural lecture, and he was
so impressed with Ruskin's concepts that he wrote them down in longhand and
carried them with him the rest of his life...
Rhodes wrote a Confession of Faith in 1877, laying out
his plan to bring the world under British rule. He wrote:
"The idea gleaming and dancing before ones eyes like a
willo-the-wisp at last frames itself into a plan. Why should we not form a
secret society with but one object, the furtherance of the British Empire, for
the bringing of the whole uncivilised world under British rule, for the recovery
of the United States, for the making (of) the Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire...."
Rhodes acquired the major gold and diamond mines of southern
Africa and used his wealth to pursue his dream. In 1891, he established a secret
society. When he realised that he wouldn't live to see his vision fulfilled,
he left his vast fortune to the Rhodes Trust to fund his secret society and the
Rhodes Scholarship Fund. (author's note: Bob Hawke was a Rhodes scholar, along
with other well known politicians of the day.)
During the past century over forty-six hundred young men have
been sent to Oxford University where they were indoctrinated in socialism and
the world government. President Bill Clinton, General Wesley Clark, Strobe
Talbot, Senator Bill Bradley, and thousands of other prominent men are Rhodes
Scholars. They work in government offices, in international banks, on the boards
of corporations, in tax-exempt foundations, in the Supreme Court, in the media,
in our universities, in the United Nations Association, and in the Council of
Foreign Relations. At Oxford they became part of an elite group that was
dedicated to changing the world. That is why Rhodes' spirit still quickens
and controls, and why his influence still casts a dark shadow over our nation....
Paul warned us about the spiritual forces that are aligned
against us when he wrote:
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to
stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and
blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore
take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the
evil day, and having done all, to stand. -– Ephesians 6:11-13.
God and Satan are involved in a cosmic struggle for the
souls of mankind, and each of us is involved whether we want to be or not.
The battle is being waged in our courts, our media, our schools, our banks, our
military, our churches, and in our government. It appears that God has given
Satan free reign to do as he pleases to determine how we will respond...
We are engaged in a battle for the hearts and minds of men.
We are to do our best, and recognise that ultimately the battle is the Lord's."
