The NEW One World Government !!

(There has been much talk about a one world government. President George W. Bush's father talked about a New World Order when he was president. That New World Order is in the making! It TRULY will come about, and soon!

The following imaginary television news broadcast is only one scenario as to how the One World Government could begin. Scriptural references have been added at the bottom for those who would like to check their bibles for pertinent scriptures.)


Welcome everyone!! This is William Weston and Janice Grailen reporting from the World Television News main studios here in Chicago.

We hope we will be able to continue to broadcast and keep you up to date on World War three as it continues. Our emergency generators continue to start and run for awhile whenever our power is cut off. We will continue to bring you the news as long as we can.

Nuclear explosions are reported from all over America as missiles drop on our cities from the United States of Europe. I'm sure our missiles are causing just as much, or more, damage in their cities than we are experiencing here.

There is fighting in the streets from the invading armies and we hear gunfire and explosions from our third floor studio. We are receiving reports from our outlying reporters that there is massive destruction with millions of people dead or dying. Electric power and telephone service is almost non-existant. Many people are storming the few grocery stores that are left and hoarding as much food and water as they can and finding shelter where ever they can from all this destruction.

Just a minute. We have a report coming in from Israel. Let's go there and see what is happening. Are you there George?

Yes I am, William. This is George Edershine reporting from the Mount of Meggido outside Jerusalem. The armies gathered in the valley are using tactical nuclear weapons as well as some other weapons of mass destruction such as Sarin gas. If I sound strange, William, it is because I'm wearing a specially fitted mask provided by our army. Thousands of soldiers are dying on each side of this war. From what I hear by reports from around the world, this just may be the end of mankind on this earth!! Nothing seems to be able to stop all the destruction and no one seems to want it to stop! We hear on the radios some of the army command centers giving orders to their battalions, and no one seems interested in stopping, William! It is chaos!! Mass destruction with many, many casualties on each side!!

(We hear an extremely loud sound like the sound of a trumpet) Wait a minute William!! What was that? Wow! Was that loud! I'm looking to try to determine where it came from ..... it seems to have come from the northern sky.... not on earth! What in the world ?..... wait a minute... it seems like the whole heaven is rolling back ... almost as if a giant hand is rolling up a window shade!!! I see the darkness of space beginning to show through the blue sky! This is truly frightening!!! What is happening??

As I look toward the North, I can see in all that blackness a very bright light that seems to be coming toward earth! What could it be? A comet? An asteroid?

William here, George. We are getting a report from the National Observatory that they have been watching some phenomenon in the North quadrant of space but can't make out exactly what it is because it is so bright. They say it is brighter than the sun and they are having to use their heaviest filters to be able to watch it at all!!

I can't believe it, George!! I'm watching our monitors here in the studio with pictures from your cameras over there. That scene is truly INCREDIBLE!! How could the sky, our atmosphere, just divide in two where we can actually look out into space with our own eyes? This IS INCREDIBLE!!!

Yes it is, William! All the armies here have stopped fighting and they are all looking toward the north where that incredibly bright light is shining!!

I'm also watching on our monitors here, William. The light is so bright that I almost can't look directly at it!!! I see some soldiers down below our lookout point here on one of the hills, and they are putting on some helmets that seem to have black faceplates and a lot of things sticking out from the helmets. Radio antennas maybe? They are looking at the bright light that is even much closer to earth than when we began watching it!!

A military truck has pulled up to that position just below us, and several dish antennas have been rotated and trained on the northern quadrant. I'm going to send one of our men to the truck, if he can get there, and find out what they are doing. They probably have some much more sophisticated equipment than we do and can see this even more distinctly than we can!!

I'll let you know, William.

Ok, George and thanks. Janice, you've been sitting there very quietly since our broadcast started. Do you want to make some comments?

Thank you, William. I am just in awe of what is happening!! As you know, I am a Christian who converted from Judaism about five years ago. I was reading in my Bible the other night and trying to make sense out of what is happening in the world right now. I was reading the prophecies in Matthew 24 that seemed to be talking explicitly about the things that are happening right now!!!!

One of those scriptures stated ..... wait just a minute .... I've got my Bible right here ..... hmmmm, Matthew 24 and verse .... well, in verse 7 it is talking about world war. I guess that is this world war three that we are in right now, but it gets pretty scary because it talks about famine and diseases and earthquakes in different places.

Then it says all these are the BEGINNINGS of SORROWS!!! William, if it gets worse than this what is everyone going to do? With millions dying now, how could it get much worse?

On down in verse 21, it talks about a TRIBULATION so GREAT that it has never happened this way before, and it says it will never happen again!!

But William, verse 22 is what really shocks me!!

It says, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the electís sake those days shall be shortened."

That doesn't sound like spiritual salvation! It sounds like it is talking about the destruction of ALL MANKIND!!! Could all this REALLY be true? Even though I am a converted Christian, I never took these words as fact. I thought it was more like analogies and little stories to get us to be good people and to keep God's Laws as best we can. Now I believe these words are concrete facts that people have all ignored until it is too late!!

Janice, I'm on the telephone with a man in Jerusalem who claims to be one of God's TWO WITNESSES!! He says he has been preaching and prophesying for over two years now that this was going to happen  and that he is, RIGHT NOW, standing before the world religious leader who is seated on a throne in the Holy of Holies in the Temple of God in Jerusalem!!!

Janice, I remember reports from the field that said these two men were causing droughts and floods whenever they wanted to, and that any who would hurt them were being killed by FIRE PROCEEDING OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS. The reports claim they have been shot with bullets, and rockets. Bombs have even been dropped on them but they could not be killed!! They are still alive!!

Of course, I dismissed all that as the work of madmen who had been able to use secret technology to do all those things!! NOW I'M NOT SO SURE!!

Yes, William. The Book of Revelation talks about those two witnesses and it claims they will be prophesying at the end time!! Could it BE?

Wait a minute, Janice. The witness I was talking to has evidently pointed a microphone or something toward the other witness and the religious leader who are having a loud discussion!!! Let's see if we can hear what is being said!!

"I am telling you sir that YOU are THE MAN OF SIN prophesied in God's Holy Word!! You MUST REPENT!! You MUST remove yourself from this Throne of God so the cleansing of the Temple can be done!!!

What you and everyone see reported on television is The Living Christ returning to this earth to set up HIS KINGDOM, and He WILL remove you from that throne HIMSELF and you will be cast into the fire  which is burning just outside the gates of Jerusalem!!! You and the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire will both be cast into that fire to be burned up unless you TRULY REPENT!!!! "

I will take it under advisement with my Cardinals and let you know in a month or so.

"Sir, you have THREE DAYS!!! The bright light you see in the northern sky is that Great God Jesus the Christ coming to this earth to put down ALL WAR and REBELLION to His Laws!! You have until He gets here!!! Get off that throne and REPENT, FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NEAR AT HAND!!!! "

What???? You dare talk to me that way????? Centurion, take these men outside into the streets and slay them to show everyone that we will not allow blasphemy against the Holy See and the Vicar of Christ!!

(William in an aside to a technician) Can we get a camera and reporter into that Temple? No? Can we get a camera into the streets outside to see if what was commanded is carried out? We can? Good, do it!!!

Let's go back to the National Observatory. Anyone there?

Yes, Mister Weston, we're here. We've been watching the approaching light and now we can see that there are many lights with it. We are trying to connect to the Hubble Telescope right now! We have had it repositioned and heavy filtering has been put into place. Perhaps we will be able to send you something very shortly from the Hubble!!

Thank you. We truly hope to see more clearly what or who this is that is approaching earth!

Wait, wait! I'm getting something from the Hubble now! This is absolutely incredible!! We can see HORSES, and RIDERS on them!! This is WILD!!! This is FRIGHTENING!! How could it be? Horses in space???

All this, of course, is unsubstantiated folks, but unless my eyes have gone completely wacko, this is AN INVASION FROM SPACE!!!! Could this TRULY BE JESUS??? I've never been much of a believer, but these are SOME KIND of super-beings who are coming to this earth!! The people over at the observatory say these beings are traveling at an incredible, unbelievable speed and everything in their path, comets, meteorites, whatever, is just being dissolved and disappears!!

Janice, I'm getting another report from the outskirts of New York where the first missile struck. Yes, go ahead?

This is Raymond Preston, William. I don't know how long I can keep this phone connection but I wanted to tell you what was happening now. There is NO NEW YORK CITY any more! It's all gone!! The city and millions of people there have just been vaporized!! There is a massive cloud that towers thousands of feet into the sky. The people who are here with me are all staring at the lights in the north sky. Some are praying. Some have had heart attacks!! ALL are overwhelmed with what is happening to us!!

From talking to others and to my Baptist brethren, we never expected this to happen. Our preacher told us that the return of Christ would be in SECRET.... that He would come and RAPTURE away His Saints and take them back to heaven for protection, but if that is Jesus returning, He truly is returning AS HE SAID HE WOULD!!!!!

William, I am so ashamed!!! I never really believed the Bible! I just thought it was a good book that was supposed to get us to feeling good about ourselves, and getting us to be good to everyone. I never believed IT MEANT WHAT IT SAID!! Can you tell me.... is it REALLY Jesus returning???

Raymond, from what little I know about the Bible, and from what Janice has been reading from it, it could truly be THE RETURN OF CHRIST!! Janice could you be any more specific?

I don't know William. I've been reading some while you have been reporting what is happening. I'll quote a few words which I found in the Book of Luke if you like.

Yes, Janice. Go ahead. I guess we're breaking new ground here, what with all the court rulings lately, aren't we? Preachers and pastors around the U.S. have been stopped by the courts from preaching much of anything because it might offend someone or hurt their feelings!

Well, I guess this will REALLY hurt their feelings then, William!! Listen to this in Luke 24 verses 51 and 52.

"And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
"And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:"

Then I found in Acts 1 and verse 11 where it says:

"Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."

Well, Janice, if that is truly Jesus returning to this earth, then the 'rapture' theory is certainly incorrect, isn't it?

It would seem so, William. Here is another scripture I found using a concordance to look it up. It is in Revelation 1 verse 7.

"Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen."

Yes, Janice..... AMEN!! I think I've just been converted. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!

Now Janice let's see what has transpired over in Jerusalem... Are you there, George?

Yes, William. I decided to come to the street outside the temple personally and bring a cameraman. I'm sorry to say, the two witnesses have been slain by the centurions as they were commanded. They are finally dead after all the attempts of the past to kill them!! However, no one wants them to be removed or buried! Everyone is going crazy! They are giving gifts to one another... they're hugging and kissing and having a party!!! They are HAPPY those two people are DEAD!!! They have decorated the streets and put up colored lights, and even set up a tree in the middle of the street beside the bodies. The tree has been decorated like a Christmas Tree.

Let me see if I can get a comment from someone..... sir.... sir ??? Could you tell me why the party and why everyone is so happy to see these two men dead?

Yeah, mister, I can tell you!! These two bastards caused a lot of destruction and death of some of my friends. I'm glad they're dead!!!

Are you a Christian, sir?

Me..... nah! I believe if it feels good, do it!! Whatta you think? Gotta go now.... me and this woman are gonna find us a private place to party if you know what I mean!!!

Yes, William. I think I do know what he means, I'm sad to say! The light in the north is getting much brighter now, it is almost as if the sun has moved closer to the earth. Shadows here in Jerusalem are very hard, sharp and crisp looking! The shadows are so dark compared to the area surrounding them!!

William, considering the brightness of that light, our sun looks dark beside it!! ....... and I just noticed, I can see the moon in this daylight and the moon looks like BLOOD!!! This is truly a scary situation, William. Over to you.

Ok, George. Janice have you found any more verses that might give us a clue as to what is happening to the sun and moon?

Yes, William, I have. It is in Acts 2 and verse 20!

"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:"

It surely does look like ALL the scriptures are being fulfilled RIGHT NOW!! However, I'm wondering what that "notable day of the Lord" is all about!!

Thanks, Janice. I don't know much Bible so you know more than I do about it!! OH! Wait a minute...... I have a man on the telephone who wants to talk to you. He says he can answer your question about the day of the Lord!!

Fine William. Hello, sir.

Greetings, Ms. Grailen. I am a member of God's one true church here on earth and I can tell you about the "day of the lord." Scripture says it would come as a thief in the night. It has done that. Everyone was caught off guard weren't they?

This Day of the Lord is mentioned in several places in scripture but especially in the Book of Revelation, where Christ revealed those things that would be happening.... and they are all happening right now!! I'll read to you from Revelation 1 verse 9 through 19:

"I was in the Spirit on the Lordís day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;"

Truly, the Day of the Lord is a DREADFUL DAY!! It is the Day of God's Wrath upon this earth and all those who have refused to obey Him. He is sending His Son, Jesus the Christ, to set up His Kingdom on this earth and He and Jesus will reign for ever and ever more!! Ms. Grailen, this is the beginning of that Day of the Lord!! God forgive us!! It has only begun to be bad. When God's ANGER is unleashed, not many will survive. Thank God, His Elect will be saved alive to help begin His reign on earth!! Hope that clears it up for you Ms. Grailen.

Janice, I'm getting a report from Jerusalem again. Can we go there?

Surely William, go ahead. The gentleman seems to have finished speaking.

George? Are you there?

Yes, William. The strangest thing is happening..... the light from the north got so bright that everyone was shielding their eyes and then suddenly it dimmed. Now we can see the approaching beings! They look like a flying army!! I'm using a pair of high-powered binoculars and we have changed to a telephoto lens on our tv camera. Maybe we can see who or what this is that is approaching!!

I'm focusing my binoculars. The camera is already focused, I think, and you should be getting a clear picture right now! Great God!!! I can see millions of beings!!! In front are three beings apparently on HORSES. At least it looks that way!!! The one in the center is wearing a priestly robe of white with a breastplate of many beautiful jewel stones but His robe is covered in blood!! To His right and left are two more beings who have wings but they are riding on horses also!!!

(Suddenly a shout from the being on the right, "come up here!!" Then another shout, "Announcing the Great God Jesus the Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords!!"

William, that shout was so loud we're beginning to experiencing an earthquake here. It looks like it might be a bad one!!! The ground is reeling and moving!! Antennas set up by the military are bending and falling!! Gaps are opening in the earth right in front of me!!!

Here too, George!! The studio building is swaying and shaking!! Some of the pictures coming in from around the world show gigantic crevasses opening up along the world's massive fault lines. It looks like it is completely around the world!!!

William, I'm looking behind me at a cemetery outside Jerusalem. The graves have been opened and, my God, people are rising out of them and into the air!!! As I look around, almost all I can see are people everywhere in the air now rising to meet Christ!!!

George, I have a multitude of pictures coming into the studio and they are all showing people rising into the air!!

William, wait! Wait!!! The two witnesses just a little way down the street have stood up and they are wiping dust off their garments! They are ALIVE, William!!! They were DEAD and now they are ALIVE!!Uh-oh, there they go into the air also!!! The party-goers are standing around with their mouths open in amazement as they watch the two witnesses rise to meet Christ!!

As I look around, it looks like a resurrection of the dead has occurred and all those rising into the air are heading toward Jesus the Christ as He continues to descend toward Jerusalem. What an AWESOME SIGHT!! The DEAD are ALIVE!!!! They're rising to meet Christ. My Lord and my God!!! William, I'm on my knees!!! I don't want to be standing when Christ stands on earth!! I'm not going to presume that I could do that!!

I'm speechless, George. Janice can you say anything?

My mouth is so dry I can hardly speak. All I can do is read another scripture, William. It's in Zechariah 14 verse 4 through 11:

"And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
"And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
"But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
'And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
"And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
"All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjaminís gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the kingís winepresses.
'And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited."

That sounds VERY encouraging to me, Janice! Thank God for His Grace and Kindness!!

Yes, William.... and one last scripture might be appropo.

Revelation 11:15-17 "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
"And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
"Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned."

Well, that is the end of this broadcast folks. Please stay tuned for continuing news and updates of the battle and destruction with our colleage Bill Baker.

Good evening, Janice. Good evening, William, and may God bless what is left of mankind!

AMEN! Even so, come Lord Jesus!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Editor --- the above scenario is but one which could happen in the near future. There are many, many scriptures to put together in the proper places in order to really know exactly how it will be, but God has given His Children the privilege of knowing that these things WILL HAPPEN just as God says they will !! We are not in darkness as the rest of the world's inhabitants are! These things will NOT come upon us unaware because we have been told by God that they WILL HAPPEN!! God has given us His Word to read and study, and He tells us to "study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing (understanding) the Word of God." He also commands us TO WATCH!!

Are YOU watching?

May God bless YOUR study as you seek to obey and serve Him. Pray that you may be found worthy to escape all the things pictured in the above scenario, and to stand before Jesus our Savior!!
