Why is this important? It is because princples, foundational principles, vision, missions and values all impact the decisions that people and organizations make. These all factor into the actions they take and the advice they give. I submit the information I'm about to provide is important for every believer and it will help you discern the source and who we are really dealing with.
This global shaking should come as no surprise. We were warned in Hebrews 12:26 that God's voice would shake the heavens and the earth. In Revelation 9:20-21 we discover that plagues were used to call people to repent of their idolatry, murders, sexual immorality, sorceries (pharmakia = drugs), and thefts.
Jesus told us in Luke 6 how to build our foundation on the rock so we would not be shaken. In verse 47 He reveals the key to that rock solid foundation. That foundation is built upon the Word of God, the truth, that is believed and acted upon. Our foundation is established on the portion of God's word we believe which is revealed through what we actually do.
I base my foundation on the truth which is found in God's word. That's what I use to compare every word, principle, value, decision and action to. So once again I'll say WHO is behind the healthcare guidance the nation's leaders are getting? It's the World Health Organization. It is wise to take a look at their founding principles, vision, goals, values. It's wiser still to look at what they actually do by looking at their projects and directives. With this in mind, let's explore.
The World Health Organization
WHO is an arm of the United Nations and received it's charter in 1948 and was the first to charter the concept of healthcare as a right. Therefore they introduced Universal Healthcare. Click here for more information about their idea of Universal Healthcare.
Rights are to be enforced by civil government. In the United States, for example, our Consitution describes what the civil government can and is supposed to do. The Bill of Rights lists God given rights which government is forbidden to interfere with. So here is my question. Why do we not find healthcare in the Bill of Rights? It's because that is a new concept chartered by WHO in 1948 which happens to be an arm of the United Nations. So, let's take a look at the UN's origin, vision, missions, values, projects and actions.
The United Nations
In a 2018 article by LifeSiteNews.com "The United Nations wants a one-world government within 12 years" Jeffery Ludwig wrote about his early college days in the 1960s and his professor telling him about how his professor was the president of the "United World Federalist." His professor said that they believed in a one-world government and that the UN would help them do this. How did they believe this one world government would come forth? They believed it would come from a vision of universal human rights captured in the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights." It was in this document that the concept of "healthcare as a right" was first introduced and WHO became an arm of the UN championing this new idea.
In the LifesiteNews.com article Ludwig says, "In 2015, seventy years after their original rights-based document, the UN took a giant step towards the global government that was only hinted at in their first organizing document. They issued a document entitled "Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development." This document has 91 numbered sections of the UN's program for world government."
This whole organization has been founded upon socialistic ideals and in 2016 a socialist refugee took the helm. The fact that a socialist took the helm of an organization founded upon socialistic ideals should come as no surprise.
The Origins of Socialism
In the history of socialism we discover that many of its precepts are embodied in "The Communist Manifesto" authored by Karl Marx and Friedrick Engels. Marx was an avowed aethist who advocated for the abolition of religion. An atheist does not believe in God. Therein lies a major issue.
Socialism was the brainchild of men who eschewed God and therefore reject the truth found in His word. Socialism is founded on a faulty world view which reveals the weakness in their foundation and the source of their pride. How do I know?
God designed the world and how its spiritual and natural laws work. You know, like the spiritual law of sowing and reaping or the law of gravity. Both of these laws just work whether you believe it or not. If you ignore these laws you will suffer the consequences. The same is true with any system of government not based on truth. Unless your worldview is based on truth, no solution or law you introduce will yield the results you hope because it is not based upon foundational values, principles of truth and actual facts.
Paul warned the young apostle Timothy that in the last days deception, lies and doctrines of demons would be the hallmark of the day. Most people assume the "doctrines of demons" only applies in the religious sphere. But I submit to you, a doctrine of a demon will be recognized by the results or fruit it produces. For example, Marx was an atheist who espoused his views on religion in the context of a political system. You can judge and discern the origin of the message and its messenger by watching the fruit or results that system creates.
You Will Know Them by Their Fruit
In Matthew 7:15-20 Jesus describes how to judge a false prophet. He said, "you will know them by their fruit." In other words, the results of their actions will reveal the root of their values. When we realize this then we can understand why socialist forms of government often produce laws and policies that produce the fruit associated with Satan.
We understand through John 8:44 that Satan is a murderer, the father of lies and a deceiver. In John 10:10 we understand how he comes to kill, steal and destroy. The fruit of any system of government, it's laws, policies and results would point to the same. For example:
- Reflections on a Ravaged Century, a review by Harvard reports how close to 100 million people were killed or died in nations with a socialist based form of government such as:
- USSR - United Soviet Socialist Republic (20 million deaths)
- China's Communist Party which introduced the term socialist market economy. (65 million deaths)
- Socialist Republic of Vietnam - (3.8 million deaths according to Hawaii.edu)
- Deception: The Director General of WHO is Tedros Adhanom. He has gained international attention during the coronavirus pandemic. This is the same person who during his tenure as the minister of health in Ethiopia was accused three times of covering up a cholera outbreak(2006, 2009, 2011) fearing it would harm Ethiopia's economic growth. VOA News said he choose not to speak the truth. Click for VOA news As Ethiopian Seeks to Head WHO, Outbreak At Home Rasies Questions & click for New York Times article Candidate to Lead WHO Accused of Covering Up Epidemics . In this current crisis the Asian Review questioned if political ties factored into the timing and content of their communication in "Did WHO's China Ties slow decision to declare emergency?"
- The newest example of the destruction of an economy is reported in Investor's Business Daily "Let them come to Venezuela and see socialism for themselves." Here we find a very rich nation brought to her economic knees unable to even feed itself. It says where it was once one of the most prosperous countries 90% of their population resides in poverty.
- This is just a sampling of the fruit produced by Marx's and Engel's work presented through the Communist Manifesto. The fruit, the results, the practices of these governments and those drawn into office in these governments has been corrupt and a selfish abuse of power. It led to the oppression of its people in every case.
Based upon the fruit of the political doctrine that Marx and Engel's espoused, we can call them a false prophet. Any major voice or organization who continues to espouse this doctrine today could also fit into the category as a modern day false prophet.
A World View Without God is Not Based on Truth
When a system of government or an organization is not based on truth, its policies, laws and programs will never yield the intended result. Their policies will espouse practices that align with Satan's views vice truth. It's kind of like the situation with Balaam. God would not allow him to curse Israel so the false prophet advised Balak how to get Israel to sin such that the spiritual laws they violated invited a curse upon them.
Policies, laws and practices that encourages people to perform acts the Bible describes as sin, iniquity or an abomination set the people up to violate spiritual laws that already exist. It brings destruction, plagues, disasters etc. It's the nature of Satan that we find in John 10:10. He comes to kill, steal and destroy. He's a master deceiver.
Note that the very best deceptions include copious amounts of truth with a lie twisted in here or there. That's why in the UN's 17 Sustainable Goals you'll find some noble goals. But not everything is as it seems. It is no surprise to me that the United Nations espouses views and policies that are not in alignment with God's truth regarding families, life, nations, borders and truth (ie. science). But instead, their views and policies align with the demonically inspired Left leaning views such as:
- Gender equality - Originally it was to support the feminist movement but now has grown to add support for all "gender inclusive" language. This concept violates basic truths first established in Genesis 1:26-27
- Climate change - This twisted scientific view works beautifully with the THEORY of evolution. Should we take care of the earth? Absolutely. It's God's creation but this view of Climate Change (previously espoused as the next Ice Age, then Global Warming and now back to Climate Change) has an ulterior motive that is associated with the goals embodied by those who adhere to a Socialist/godless type of government. It's a perfect example of Romans 1:25 where they worship the creation more than the Creator.
- Health Rights - This concept was first introduced in 1948 by WHO which is an arm of the United Nations. Health is a noble goal. Saving lives is good. Improving the quality of lives is good. But the way WHO chooses to do this is the same way the Liberal Left does around the world. In America in the Democrat party and in the UN and WHO that means "a woman's right to choose" trumps the child's right to live.
The Real Goal is Control - Not Life!
Life Issues Institute reports in a 2015 study that 2900 abortions (male/female - wonderful example of their idea of equality) are performed. As of today in the US about 300 dead have been reported. That's after almost 2 months. Every day 2900 children are murdered in the womb under the guise of a "woman's right to choose." Talk about twisted.
If life were really the issue abortion would end. But saving lives is not the real goal. The real goal is control. That is what socialist government seek to do. That's why they want to own businesses, increase your taxes, and tell you how to run your life. Socialism is like a gateway drug to fascism, communism, Nazism... This always lead to the wealth and power being consolidated into the hands of a few to the detriment of the rest. My friends, that is history.
Hosea 4:6 says it so well. It's says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge."
So what's my conclusion? I don't trust the motives nor the decision making ability of people in government who blindly commit a holocaust (close to 1 million children murdered every year since Roe v Wade) while seeking to save hundreds. It's the same display of logic in gun control where they focus or legislate semi-automatic long guns which are used in the least amount of crimes (300 or less each year) compared to other weapons (5000+) or even better, focusing on issues like the opioid crisis in which 50,000+ die each year. If life were really the driving force actions and advice would be different.
My point is, they are leveraging a message and a situation with their organizational goals and vision in mind. The liberal left around the world and WHO are using this crisis to advance their agenda. If you recognize that then you are wise.
Fear Verses Panic
My friends, fear is a God given emotion. It's mean to protect and save life. Proverbs 9:10 says, "“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." You see, fear is not the problem.
Unrestrained fear or panic is. Uncontrolled fear is blind. The root word of panic and pandemic comes from the mythological Greek god Pan. In a brief study you'll find this figure was sexually promiscious and when we woke up from a dream with an angry shout which inspired panic.
Panic is a sudden sensation of fear which is so strong as to dominate or prevent reason and logical thinking, replacing it with overwhelming feelings of anxiety and frantic agitation consistent with an animalistic fight-or-flight reaction. Satan desires to use panic in this pandemic for his purpose to advance his agenda (Revelation 12, John 8:44, John 10:10, Isaiah 14:12-16).
Taking precautions with this virus in mind is wise. It's why in Leviticus 13 we find some of the laws dealing with lepers. It leads to isolation and quarantine for the safety of the general population. But note they quarantined sick people. They did not isolate nor quarantine EVERYONE!
The preventive ill informed actions directed by WHO, who informs organizations like the CDC (Center for Disease Control) who then inform and advise our civil government have successfully destroyed economies around the world wiping out tremendous amounts of wealth in just two months. It's like the cure is worse than the disease itself. However, this is extremely useful if your goal is control for all of the steps civil government takes will require an increase in taxes.
Second, our civil government passing along guidelines and requesting compliance even strongly urging, suggesting, recommending, calling for adherence is great and expected. Violating the First Amendment is not. That's been a casualty in this crisis. On the first day our governor limited gatherings by order to 250 or less I wrote him, my senator and representatives strongly objecting to his violation of the First Amendment and our Washington State Constitution.
You see, healthcare is not a right. It's a new concept created and presented formally through WHO in 1948. It's a useful tool of the liberal Left Democrat Party of which my govenor is a member.
Here's the bottom line. Civil government is not responsible for my health. I am. You are. It is the Dad and Mom responsible for their children. It's not up to government to tell the gym owner, the coffee shop, the burger joint, the movie theatre, the church, the private school... to shut down. It's their decision how they handle the crisis/challenge it's up to you and I if we choose to visit those establishments.
Civil government shutting down borders and or controlling things associated with national defense is within their wheelhouse. Them choosing to shut down elements of government is fine. Mobilizing resources to help different communities etc! Great. Violating the First Amendment is so wrong. But due to hyper fear, many are OK with civil government making a decision that should be yours.
The lazy and or the ignorant are OK with that. It's sad that so many have abdicated their personal responsibilty and transfered it to civil government. It's kind of like blame shifing.
Please understand, I'm not saying that everyone staying home for two weeks is bad or that we should not be super vigilant at this time. I am saying it was your decision to make. Not theirs. Many have failed this civil rights test and I tell you the liberal Left is going to continue to push to slowly erode your civil rights.
Church, this is a clear and present danger to us. They'll use this lesson to seperate, divide and demonize.
We have a mandate from the Lord to lay hands upon the sick. We've been given authority by Jesus to heal and raise the dead. Why Holy Spirit even gave some a gift of healing. Everyone of us have also been given the key, the truth, regarding eternal life.
What's everyone afraid of? Getting sick and dying. Church, this should be our finest hour. For the real Church it will be.
WHO, who, is ultimately behind this? It is Satan, the one who comes to kill, steal and destroy. I say, let the real Church arise in the power of Jesus Christ.
What Should We Do?
- Recognize this is like a multi-level chess game. There is a strategy for and moves being made on every level. Here are the four levels.
- Civil Government
- On each level decisions and moves have to be made. My advice is to allow the fear of the Lord and the knowledge of the Holy One guide your steps and not panic.
- Civil Government
- Pray for them to make wise choices and bind or resist Satan's attempt to control the world and pray for the truth to be made manifest (1 Timothy 2:1-4, Matthew 16:18-19, 1 John 3:8, John 14:6).
- Pray that civil government does not go beyond the boundaries of God's given design and abuse their power and authority.
- Pray they seek wisdom from God through apostles and prophets (strategic revelatory gifts) in Christ's Church.
- Pray that we the Church would be filled with love for perfect love casts out all fear and that we would arise to the challenges of this day to re-present (represent) Jesus Christ in love, power and truth.
- Matthew 10:8
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
- Share what Jesus did. Hebrews 2:14-15
Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
- Pray for a Great Awakening and prepare to receive a harvest which we need to disciple and redeploy back into the harvest.
- Dads and moms need to decide where to go, what to do and what's best for their families.
- Pray they/we use this time wisely to draw near to the Lord and to each other.
- Reach out in your neighborhood. Look to build relationships and show the love of Christ.
- Take responsiblity for yourself.
- Ultimately it is up to you how you choose to respond. Will you give place to irrational fear or will the love of Christ lead, guide and compell your actions?
- If you are a citizen then I urge you to exercise your right to speak to your governemnt representatives. Engage in the political process as a responsibie citizen. It's your rights, use them or lose them.
- Discover how you can serve in your local church?
- Do your part within your family to contribute to, serve and care for them.
- This foundational scripture should impact how you personally interact at every level listed above. John 15:12-14 "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you."
- Matthew 6:9-13
In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
- Habakkuk 3:17-18
Though the fig tree may not blossom,
Nor fruit be on the vines;
Though the labor of the olive may fail,
And the fields yield no food;
Though the flock may be cut off from the fold,
And there be no herd in the stalls--
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.
- Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
- Matthew 6:9-13
