If we're living in the latter days of the latter days, and I believe we are, then Satan should be in high gear getting ready for his world takeover.
Whether we have two days, two years or twenty years before the Rapture of the Saints, a simple review of national and world events should uncover Satan's latter-day tactics of his run-up to power.
Thankfully Believers have a power within them that is exponentially greater (1 John 4:4). We can boldly do what God has called us to do with the gifts He has given us, knowing it is He who is in ultimate control.
For Americans there are two things of which many Christians seemingly are unaware: "Agenda 21" and "George Soros." Both have had a huge effect on the direction of the United States for the last 15 to 20 years and to disregard them as just "conspiracy theories" could literally lead to our downfall as a world power—or even the loss of freedoms we take for granted.
But understanding what and who they are, and the detrimental influence they have had on our country, is absolutely necessary to know...unless you want to take an ostrich approach to our problems.
So below is a summary of Agenda 21...not meant to be fully in-depth, but hopefully enough to give you the big picture.
While Christian conservatives are focused on the fight to elect politicians who espouse Biblical values, most of us are unaware of the socialism being inserted into our local communities through Agenda 21. Never heard of Agenda 21? If not, that's what they're counting on.
Agenda 21 is a world agenda that is directly affecting your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness...yet few have even heard of the phrase.
Agenda 21, in a nutshell, is a United Nations program promoting socialist goals that attack U.S. constitutionally protected freedoms and liberties.
(And if you're not worried about the stupid U.N., think again. Liberals are pushing for the U.N.'s laws to be superior to our laws. But that's a whole different subject I won't get into now.)
Agenda 21 is the blueprint for the United Nations to control the world. Yes, they actua lly think they can. And the Bible says eventually there WILL be a world government, so we're watching Bible prophecy being fulfilled.
Agenda 21 is an abbreviation of "The Global Agenda for the 21st Century." It got its start in 1992 when the United Nations held a huge conference in Rio de Janeiro called "The United Nations' Conference on Environment and Development" or "The Real Earth Summit."
Few conservatives, much less Christians, paid much attention to this meeting, but an astonishing 18,000 people attended from 178 countries!
The U.S. Congress never approved Agenda 21, but President George H. W. Bush (Senior), Clinton and Obama have all signed Executive Orders implementing it in the U.S.!
According to U.N. literature, Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be implemented globally, nationally and locally by the U.N. to cover every area in which humans affect the environment...which is, of course, everything.
The program is not secret, but openly promoted within the U.N.'s public socialistic objectives.
However, they stealthily have substituted the words "Sustainable Development" for "Environment" in order to be more acceptable to Americans. So pay attention to the word "sustainable" in the future.
Since the Rio Summit, the U.N. has mostly bypassed national governments using Agenda 21's International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) to make agreements directly with local governments.
ICLEI's U.S. presence has grown through the years to include agreements with over 600 cities, towns and counties here implementing land use plans laid out in Agenda 21.
Several cities have realized what ICLEI was up to and banned them from operating. Four states are discussing ways to stop ICLEI from operating—Kansas, New Hampshire, Tennessee and Arizona. But most people are simply unaware of both their presence and/or their agenda.
Agenda 21's world goals include combating poverty, changing consumption patterns and reducing private ownership (homes, cars, farms, etc.). So what does this mean?
Poverty—The U.S. has too much money compared to the rest of the world; therefore, its wealth must be redistributed to the rest of the world under the banner of "social justice."
Changing consumption patterns—The U.S. is only 5% of the world's population but consumes over 20% of the world's energy. That is considered extravagant and has to be corrected.
Private Home Ownership
These ding-bats know Americans have too much control of their lives due to the large amount of private ownership of houses, cars, farms, savings, etc. And they want to solve that problem so we can be more easily controlled by the U.N.
Most of us would laugh off the above as being ridiculous. But they are not only serious but have been stealthily implementing this since 1992!
They also just despise the large percentage of gun owners in America. Surely you've noticed that they bash gun owners every chance they get. More on this later.
Once the broad goals are adopted locally, then come the demands to allow overreaching regulations. Have you ever wondered where all these weird regulations in so many local governments are coming from? Agenda 21!
Eventually, they want control of the way Americans live, eat, learn and communicate. They want to be able to limit water, electricity and transportation.
Agenda 21 authors admit that it "...calls for specific changes in the activities of all people." No one would be free from the watchful eye of the proposed global tracking and information system.
Sound familiar? Rev 13:16-18 talks about getting to the point that every person on the planet will be controlled from one place.
This happens a few years after the Rapture, so as this moves along, the closer we are to our "twinkling of an eye" exit (1 Cor 15:51-52).
The ultimate goal of Agenda 21, now cleverly referred to as "Growth Management," "Smart Growth," or "Comprehensive Planning," is to cram people into small livable areas in order to institute population control.

Naturally, one wonders how the heck they think private property is up for grabs until you look at the U.N. Charter compared to the U.S. Constitution.
When the U.S. tries to claim that we must get the approval of the U.N. to implement an action, then we're in effect saying that we are under the laws of the U.N., not under the laws of the U.S.
And the laws of the U.N. are not the same as the U.S.! The U.N. laws leave just enough wiggle room to do pretty much whatever they want to achieve their goals. Where the U.S. Constitution demands compensation for property seizures, the U.N. does not!
Agenda 21 includes a plan for "social justice" that will redistribute wealth. The U.S. is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, and naturally uses more energy, so we will be the hardest hit by environmental regulation.
But rather than using "environment," a word people are getting weary of, they are substituting the word "sustainability."
The goal of "sustainability," i.e. using government to accomplish vague earth-caring goals, is contrary to U.S. free market capitalism.
It's not the smoke they hate, it's just a
ruse to regulate private business.
Third world countries that cannot financially afford to comply with the ridiculous environmental regulations will continue their high levels of fossil fuel consumption, forcing the U.S. to conserve even more to make up for those countries.
Obama signed Executive Order 13575 establishing a "White House Rural Council" prescribed by Agenda 21. The amount of government resources Obama has directed to administer this order is almost unbelievable.
Not surprisingly, Obama committed thousands of federal employees in 25 federal agencies to promote "sustainability" in rural areas, completely bypassing Congressional approval!
Not all of these agencies are even related to rural areas. Their agenda is to entice local communities into adopting Agenda 21 programs by providing them millions of dollars in grants.
Rural areas, 16% of the U.S., are fast becoming directly controlled by the Federal Government—including education, food supply, land and water use, recreation, private property and energy.
Agenda 21 will be difficult to defeat now that it is already ingrained into over 600 local governments across the U.S. It IS possible that if Republicans take over the White House, the President could ban Agenda 21. But don't hold your breath.
So the only way to actually fight this thing is to fight it locally. "Texans for Accountable Government" is doing this by educating local boards and commissions and serving on them. It's going to take that kind of grass roots action. See link below.
But don't miss the main objective of the U.N., which is total control of everyone and everything.
Even if it seems far-fetched to you and me, the fact is they believe it and the Bible predicts it. And for the world's elitists (Satan's minions) the U.S. is the last stumbling block to total control.
Soros is Hungarian by birth, has Jewish roots and changed his name from Schwartz to avoid the German persecution of Jews in the 1930s. He's a multi-billionaire, non-practicing Jew who has fully embraced atheism. He is a socialist, leaning toward Marxism and loathes the capitalistic United States.
In 1944 Soros worked under Adolf Eichmann in Hungary during WWll and has referred to that year as one of the best years of his life. Eichmann was overseeing the murder of 500,000 Jews while at the same time confiscating their property. So it's a bit difficult to understand why Mr. Soros calls it a great year.
After WWll, Soros attended the London School of Economics where he was tutored by the infamous atheist Karl Popper, learning how to implement and manage social engineering.
In 1956 Soros moved to New York City where he worked on Wall Street amassing a fortune in the capitalistic world of hedge funds and currency speculation.
Considered to be absolutely ruthless, amoral and shrewd, he had amassed his fortune by the mid-1980s. In 1992 he shorted the British pound, leveraging billions in paper financial bets, causing Britons to see their homes devalued and life savings' purchasing power cut by 1/3 almost overnight.
Soros was involved in and hugely financially benefited from the collapse of the former Soviet Empire as well as the financial problems in Thailand and Malaysia. Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, "We regard George Soros as kind of a Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people."
The Russians are so mad at Soros they issued an arrest warrant for him. Calling him an "International Financial Terrorist," they claim the Russian Secret Service found that he was using foreign currency derivatives to start an attack on the Russian Currency Shares in the market.
When you throw in his roles in the financial problems in Yugoslavia, Georgia, Hungary, Ukraine, and Myanmar (formally Burma), you can better understand why and how his tightening tentacles of globalization and the New World Order give him more and more power.
Soros once told a major Australian newspaper, "America, as the center of the globalized financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out." He added, "The time has come for a very serious 'adjustment' in America's consumption habits."
You may recall that our esteemed President Obama committed some 10 billion dollars of aid to Brazil to give them an investment advantage as they expanded their offshore oil fields. This was done at the same time he was denying permits to U.S. companies to drill in the waters off our own coasts.
But what you probably didn't know was that his aid to Brazil came shortly after his largest political financial backer, George Soros, had invested heavily in a Brazilian oil company named Petrobras.
Tait Trussel writes, "The Petrobras deal may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil, but it's a bad deal for the U.S."
The American Petroleum Institute estimates that had the Obama administration allowed the same type of drilling in waters off the U.S. coasts, it would have created some 150,000 new, high-wage jobs in the U.S. Not to mention somewhere in the range of 1.7 trillion dollars in federal, state and local revenue....which, of course, would move us toward energy independence.
(Have you ever wondered why Barack Hussein Obama will not allow the Canadian pipeline and off-shore drilling that would give us huge amounts of oil, but rather wants us to pay through the nose to the Arabs?)
Soros loathes America and has been actively working to destroy it for years, backing candidates who support extreme liberal positions like open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia and progressive positions supporting rights and entitlements.
His support has been critical in electing many of the more radical Democrats who replaced moderates.
David Horowitz and Richard Poe authored the book, "The Shadow Party." It's a detailed outline of how Soros got control of the Democratic Party and now pretty much calls all the shots.
It shows how the Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which became the Obama Administration. In "The Shadow Party" the authors say:
"By Soros' own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia and Yugoslavia. When Soros targets a country for 'regime change,' he begins by creating a shadow government, a full-formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises."
"The Shadow Party Soros has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup," says the DiscoverTheNetworks.org
In the November 2008 edition of the German magazine "Der Spiegel," Soros was quoted on what he thought the next U.S. President should do immediately after taking office: "I think we need a large stimulus package...around 600 billion dollars."
When Obama and the Democrats were swept into office, Soros said, "I think Obama presents us a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence. The U.S. needs a cap-and-trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights." This, of course, is exactly what Obama is seeking.
In 2008, Soros donated five billion dollars to the Democratic National Committee, both to secure Obama's election win and elect as many far-left liberals as possible. Yes, you read that right, five billion dollars to the Democrats!
These eye-popping donations, actually beginning during the Clinton administration, have continued through today. He controls dozens of companies through which he funnels money to promote his causes.
Ted Behr, who is a Christian and a movie critic, spoke at one of our Steeling the Mind Conferences and lamented that he has proof that G-Rated family movies are hugely profitable but he can't get the major studios to invest in them.
Surprise surprise, turns out that Soros has huge influence in the entertainment industry. He owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner and therefore can insist they avoid scripts with conservative Christian values. Have you ever wondered why almost every major movie has at least one pro-homosexual scene?
His influence in the mainstream media is also quite heavy. MSNBC calls those who identify with the Tea Party "dangerous radicals" while praising those in the Occupy movement.
Richard Poe writes, "Soros' private philanthropy, totaling nearly 5 billion dollars, continues undermining America's traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering."
Soros heavily supports MoveOn.org, Media Matters for America, the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, Planned Parenthood, the Occupy Movement and many more. You can get a complete list and descriptions at DiscoverTheNetworks.org.
In summary, George Soros is an anti-American, anti-Christian, far-left liberal billionaire and is on a no-holds-barred fight to take America down in order for his vision of a new world order to be instituted.
As hard as it is to believe that one guy can have this much impact, it's true. But the answer for Believers is not only voting for candidates who stand on Biblical values. We also must pray for our nation to wake up to what is going on. Otherwise, the land of the free may come to a screeching halt much sooner than any of us dreamed.
Bottom line—Armor up with God's Word! God allowed us to live at the time we do. Be ready to defend what you believe. Below are great DVDs with a wealth of info. Order 'em and pass 'em around!!
