Coronavirus Calls For A New World Order

Henry Kissinger came to academic prominence through the success of his 1950s book, "A World Restored."

He became famous as Richard Nixon's Secretary of State and what was called his "Shuttle Diplomacy." He also served under Gerald Ford.

Now he is calling for "A New World Order"---because coronavirus demands it.

Academics and a few want-a-be global leaders are huddling to call their next play to win one for "Kiss."

But the people of the world appear to be moving away, not toward globalism. Toward God's plan for nations, not the academic's secularist plan for a one-world system.

Be informed.

The world as the humanists see it.

In his op-ed in the Wall Street Journal last Friday, Henry Kissinger declared that it is now imperative that the world's leaders, even as they deal with the pandemic, begin to "transition to the post-coronavirus era."

"Failure to do so," he says, "could set the world on fire."

Kissinger says,
"Leaders are dealing with the crises on a largely national basis, but the virus's society dissolving effects do not recognize borders. While the assault on human health will---hopefully---be temporary, the political and economic upheaval it has unleashed could last for generations."

He says,
"No country, not even the US, can in a purely national effort overcome the virus. Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program."

His first principle to creating the new world order is "sustaining public trust" which, he says, is " international peace and stability."

Pat Buchanan wonders "how do you trust again our adversary China, after its criminal cover-up of the menace and magnitude of the virus unleashed in Wuhan?"

He asks, "How do we trust again this regime that was, until recently, blaming the coronavirus on US Army troops visiting Wuhan?"

You don't.

Henry Kissinger and Barack Obama are preaching the same one-world doctrine. So is German Chancellor Angela Merkel. And others are still trying to piece together a "one Europe" government.

Shortly after President Trump took office in 2017, Barack Obama was in Germany with Merkel mounting a staunch defense of their brand of globalism. Obama was promoting his new global foundation, while Merkel was explaining to her countrymen why the million-plus middle east mostly Muslim migrants she had/or would be allowing into the country was a good thing. No borders? No problem.

Kissinger, in his op-ed Friday, said:
"The founding legend of modern government is a walled city...strong enough to protect the people from an external enemy...This pandemic has produced a revival of the walled city in an age where prosperity depends on global trade and movement of people."

Kissinger calls the idea of a "walled city" an "anachronism" and a "legend."

Buchanan wonders if the nation-state, whose principal duty is the defense of the health, safety and security of the unique people who created it, the "legend?"

"Or," he asks, "is the real legend, the myth, the idea of some 'New World Order' of countries traveling and trading happily with one another in a federation of the world?"

Alexander Hamilton did not see through a glass darkly. He said, "Every nation ought to endeavor to possess within itself all the essentials of national supply."

The world as the Creator sees it.

When Soros and other globalists, including those of the so-called religious Left, were misquoting Scripture to make their case for open borders, my friend Bryan Fischer, with American Family Association, responded.

This is a part of what he wrote. His entire article is here.

What we learn from the Bible is that borders are God's idea, and that such borders are to be respected. They are not to be crossed without permission.
The Scriptures make it clear that national sovereignty, including clearly defined borders, is God's idea. In Acts 17:26, we read, "And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place..." (Emphasis mine throughout.)
Two things, we are told, are under God's sovereign control: how long a nation lasts, and where its borders are. The verb translated "having determined" is the Greek verb "horizo," from which we get the word "horizon." It means "to mark out, to define." So God has marked out and defined the borders of each country.
Our southern border is there by God's design. To disregard it, to treat it as if were not there, to regard it as something not worth respecting and defending, is an insult to the God who put it there for our benefit.
The bulk of the second half of Joshua is a record of the promised land being divided up among the 12 tribes. What is striking is how thorough and detailed the description of each tribal boundary is. In Joshua 15 the word "boundary" is found no less than 15 times in describing the perimeter of Judah.
Even regarding private property, curses were pronounced on anyone who moved a boundary marker, a stone that delineated the perimeter of privately owned land. Borders, boundaries and property lines clearly matter to God.
That such national boundaries are to be respected is made plain by no less a personage than Moses himself. In a largely forgotten passage, Numbers 20:14-21, we read that Moses sought permission from the king of Edom to cross his border and pass through his land. When permission was refused, Moses didn't force his way in; he respected the king's decision and went around Edom to the East.
The king of Edom was utterly impervious to this plea for so much as a tourist visa. "You shall not pass through." How did Moses react to this denial of permission to immigrate into and through the sovereign territory of another nation? Did he barge ahead anyway? Try to sneak in under cover of darkness? Did he launch a military strike to secure passage? Nope. "Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his territory, so Israel turned away from him."
The lesson? Each nation's sovereignty is marked by its boundary, and each nation has the moral right to decide who will be given permission to enter its sovereign territory. Moses recognized this, and so should we. The only exception is under circumstances of a just war.
Bottom line: borders are biblical, and are thereby God's sovereign design. And they are to be respected by everyone.


Progressives---secular and humanist--- are persistent.

While the Pelosi's and the Schummer's see the coronavirus as an opportunity to advance a secularist progressive agenda, the virus is working against them.

Buchanan notes, "As in most wars, it is the men of action not the men of words to whom the people turn---to governors, not legislators or members of Congress."

Trump is taking action. People are aware. His support is growing.

And about the coronavirus: It's actually forcing people to stop, reflect on what's really important and turn to spiritual matters---to God.

Perhaps a new world order of a different kind.

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Fearless. Be Bold. Be Prayerful.
