Made in Asia

Over the last few issues of The Omega Times, we have
pushed the scripture from Revelation 16:19 referring to the final world empire
which will be divided into the three regions of David Rockefeller's Trilateral
Commission.

"And the great city was divided into three parts, and the
cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God..."

As we have formerly learnt, the three regions are Europe,
including Africa; the Americas, from Canada down to South America and
Asia-Pacific in which region we at this office live.

It is significant therefore, that New Zealand continually
makes trade agreements with Asian countries and here we see it again in the Listener
magazine, 26 May 2001: "Made in China -– Why is a free trade pact with Hong
Kong being driven through without any meaningful public debate?

We are in their backyard, but they're barely aware of us.
According to Helen Clark, the 'Closer Economic Partnership' being hammered
out at the moment with Hong Kong is all about getting on the screen, about
sending a 'we're here' signal to Asia. In a world that is
increasingly moving into trading blocs, said Clark last month, 'The thing that
haunts New Zealand policy-makers most is that ... we might be left out.'

Scary visions. For the deal's critics, the prospect of the
government signing up to another free trade agreement -– after last year's
one with Singapore -– is equally alarming. They warn that it will expose New
Zealand to many of the same risks as the notorious Multilateral Agreement on
Investment
-– dumped in 1998 after international public outcry -– opening
us up to massive compensation claims by unhappy overseas investors, stepping up
pressure to commercialise social services and further weakening already
enfeebled controls over foreign investment. And this is a ghost train ride that
may have no ready exit. Should the provisions of an earlier investment agreement
with Hong Kong be carried over, the deal would remain binding for a further 15
years after any future government called a halt.

How's the timing? Negotiations with Hong Kong got under way
in earnest the week that Quebec was being rocked by anti-globalisation protests.
According to prominent free trade critic and law professor Jane Kelsey, they are
proceeding against a 'growing sense of unease I find around this country about
the continued pursuit of the free trade investment agenda by a government that
is supposedly offering something different'..." (emphases added).

I hope you the reader have noticed by now that you are no
longer living under a democracy, but under a system that is progressively
selling out everything that belonged to you, your father and your grandfather
before you -– a system over which you have no control.

The problem is not economic, political or religious. It is a
spiritual problem only as far as the individual is concerned, by a very close
relationship, not with China, but with our Lord Jesus Christ. It is called being
born-again and comes about as the sinner comes in humility to the foot of the
cross of Jesus and prays a very simple prayer:

  1. Lord Jesus, I repent of my sin. I turn away from it and I turn to you.
  2. I believe that your blood was shed on the cross for me, a sinner, and I accept that blood as your covering for my life of sin.
  3. I open the door to my heart, Lord Jesus and invite you in.

The Bible promise is clear:

"To as many as received him, to them gave he power to
become the sons of God, even to them that

believe on his name:" John 1:12 will become real to you as
you experience the salvation that God has so freely given to us through the
precious blood of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
