U.S. Joins Alliance of Civilizations

 

“The Alliance of Civilizations is a special project of the UN Secretary-General which seeks to counter the cultural and religious forces which can lead to extremism and polarization in society, and works to actively engage governments in support of civil society projects that help bring communities together. The Alliance has already developed a number of partnerships with US-based organizations, and the entry of the US government into the Alliance is expected to lead to greater participation by US-based academic and research institutions, NGOs, businesses, religious and media groups.”

Here is a quote from the website for the upcoming AoC forum in Rio:

“The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations seeks to address widening rifts between communities and societies by reaffirming a paradigm of mutual respect among peoples of different cultural and religious backgrounds and by helping to mobilize concerted action towards this end.”

Here is a pdf of the High Level Group Report. Pages 47-48 contain some goals.

Globalisation=Opportunity

dsc011052The powers that be officially announced the global economic new order and promoted the one world religion at London’s G-20 meeting. It is happening people! Still on their “things to do” list: global government, global monetary (payment) system and global enforced luciferian worship.

But while all this is developing, we have work to do. We are about our Father’s business. Our job is to preach the Gospel ofdsc011013 Jesus Christ, teach and proclaim the Word of God, disciple believers the best we know how, and edify and serve the body of Christ. While the kingdom of darkness is busy working evil, we serve Christ in His Kingdom, until He returns for us or calls us home. While darkness manifests all around us, we shine the light of Christ, serving Him with gladness!

Globalisation is really an opportunity to reach the world as ambassadors of Christ. As a result of economic globalisation, more people are relocating for work. This is an opportunity to meet and talk with international people who now live next door to us. The Lord promises to build His Kingdom by purchasing men with His blood from every nation. All that the Father has given to Jesus out of the world will be gathered by Him. Let us take the opportunities He gives and be faithful workers in this, His global mission field.

For My name will be great among the nations, says the LORD of hosts. Malachi 1:11

Ready to Share the Gospel

Being ready to use current events to share the gospel. Several witnessing conversations I’ve had were the result of someone asking me directly about some current event. After 911, I had neighbors literally coming to my door to ask me what was happening, if God “did that”, etc. They were afraid and they wanted answers. In those cases I told them that this was not “God making that happen to us”, but was the act of evil men. But I told them that this was now the time to hear what God is trying to tell you. Then I went into the gospel with them. I shared about how we can only be “safe” in Christ. They listened. The same thing happened with Katrina and the South East Asia tsunami. The same thing is happening now.

Right now we have government billboards asking us, “READY?”(it begs the question!), we have weird things going on with money, food, gas, markets, jobs, weather……..then there’s America slowly uniting with Canada and Mexico…………and lots more. I’m sure you could add to the list.

About a month ago I was in a store, and I heard a group of businessmen talking about the economy, about recession, and they had tinges of panic and fear in their voices. They were seriously asking each other what was going to happen. I often hear people in public, discussing their fear regarding current events. As things change and events happen, people are bewildered and frankly, afraid. Many times people will openly speak to you about how they feel. We need to be ready to lovingly direct people from these world events to dealing with the ultimate issues of God’s righteousness, justice, love, mercy, and the cross of Christ. We need to be ready to share the gospel.
