British Lord Monckton Warns of UN Power Play for US Sovereignty


You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

The following video has gone viral on the internet, with millions of viewers outraged.  With stealth and audacity, the UN climate treaty advocates are attempting to drain every last vestige of life from the American Constitution and every last penny from her citizens.  Beware the Copenhagen Treaty!  “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:  but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” -Proverbs 29:2.

Note:  Apparently, Monckton’s recent appearance on the Glenn Beck program has rallied true American voices.  “Copenhagen” may now have to wait until 2010.  Let us pray, and claim the promises of Scripture,“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, [saying], Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh:  the Lord shall have them in derision.” -Psalm 2:2-4.

Wielding the Nuclear Sword

Wielding the Nuclear Sword


By Douglas F. Levesque, Founder of The Levesque Institute

Today at least nine nations have a nuclear weapon in their arsenals.  Only one, however, has used this weapon in warfare:  the United States of America.

The debate remains as to whether bombing the two Japanese cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima was moral or right.  The fact that it hastened the end of the war, and probably saved both American and Japanese lives seems clear, but it also clearly opened a Pandora’s box of potential conflict and political conundrum.  Should nations have nuclear weapons?  Is it ever right to use them, and when?  Are there rules to such issues, and who should decide them?  National and International protocols have been debated and issued.  The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been established by the United Nations as a permanent governing, inspection, reporting, and enforcement arm, but is it effective enough?   The better question may be is it effective at all? There is another voice of authoritative counsel in this issue that should be considered.  The Bible speaks to the twenty-first century issue of wielding the nuclear sword. “…and with good advice, make war.” (Proverbs 20:18)

Striving for National Might

Military prowess or martial greatness should not be the primary concern of nations, though it is an important factor.  Ancient King David was an able warrior with mighty men of war, who both defended and conquered territory effectively. However, his primary designs were moral and spiritual.  When he succeeded at spiritual endeavors, national might was increased.  When he failed at moral duty, his country’s war fighting decisions were abysmal.  “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.”(Psalms 20:7)  Scripture teaches that how a nation wields the name and Spirit of God is a far better indicator of national might than nuclear power and cataclysmic weaponry.  Striving for national might is not a sin, unless the God of the Bible is left out of the equation. (I Samuel 17:45, Hebrews 4:12)

God’s Aid in Warfare

As previously mentioned, King David had a certain proficiency in battle.  He declared that it was a by-product of knowing God. “Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.”(Psalms 144:1)  The Lord Himself revealed important intelligence and maneuvers to David’s army with staggering results.  These same results were inflicted upon David’s people when he did not comply with the decrees given him.  Throughout the Bible, wars are both ordered and initiated by God.  He aids in the actual warfare through the use of both conventional and supernatural means.  The fact that one nation has a nuclear weapon while another does not, or that some nations keep weaponry out of another’s hand, is part of this divine aid. (Zechariah 4:6)

Balance of Power is a Divine Issue

It is evident in history as well as in Scripture that the Almighty has allowed certain ‘less than desirable’ empires to rise to power, in some cases even clearly facilitating the rise.  This is done in order to bring humility and justice to other nations, to direct the choices of certain national leaders, and further the working of His own plan for the ages.  Individual lives affected are certainly not without His consideration; rather they are the core of His design and reason.  The Mesopotamians, Persians, and Romans of old became great in order to fulfill not just their will but God’s own.  (They all eventually paid for their follies, and were not greater than their national sins as well.)  That America is a nuclear superpower, standing alone in her national capabilities, is according to the measure of her adherence to the Bible and allegiance to its truths.  We may just as easily fall from our height if we wield the nuclear sword with pride and untamed passion.  But the fact that we wield it with restraint, have only used it with reserve, and continue to desire a sheathed presence only is a testament to national greatness and Heaven’s ordered goodness. “This is nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel:  for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host.” (Judges 7:14)  If the balance of power changes, the fault will be our own.  God can use other nations to execute power. (Psalms 149:6-9, Romans 13:1-7)

God-fearing nations whose foundations are in Bible truths are, in fact, the best countries to have the power of nuclear weapons.  The United States can and should have them as a deterrent, and if necessary as a useful weapon in warfare.  We should recognize this penchant for technological nuclear superiority and the ability to deliver its power to our enemies efficiently as a moral force to be used for good, not selfish gain or personal vendetta.  We may also strive to govern its use elsewhere, endeavoring to keep such a sword out of the hands of rogues and despots.  Nuclear power, like the power of gravity, is not something we are masters of, only manipulators of.  Like a sword in the hand of a soldier, we must wield the nuclear one with ability, restraint, and responsibility lest we hurt our-selves, but when called upon to execute force do so with the assurance of being right.  “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.” (Psalms 33:12-22)

Secrets of the UN Meditation Room

Secrets of the UN Meditation Room


By Dr. Douglas F. Levesque, Founder of The Levesque Institute
   
 If the U.N. building is a temple of global identity, then the Meditation Room is a ‘Holy of Holies’ to the adherents of it’s esoteric, pantheistic neo-pagan spirituality.  The room was designed by the then Secretary General of the U.N. Dag Hammerskjold, and opened in 1957 as a “meeting of light, of the sky, and the earth . . .”, “dedicated to silence, . . .and stillness . . .” , “where the doors may be open to the infinite lands of thought and prayer.”  (Hammerskjold in his own words).      

The abstract mural seen here is a series of inter-related geometric patterns meant to create a contemplative ‘unity of god, earth, and time’ sensation.  The underlying astro-physiological meaning is the subject of much debate.  Could the painting contain a cosmic calendar or message delineating the “Age of Aquarius”?        The walls truncate like a pyramid to focus on the cultic shapes, and a simple change in lighting brings different elements to the forefront sparking even more ‘meditative ecstasy’. (See upper left of page).      

“But the stone in the middle of the room has more to tell us.  We may see it as an altar, empty not because there is no God, not because it is an altar to an unknown god, but because it is dedicated to the God whom men worship under many names and in many forms.” (Hammerskjold in his own words).  Obviously, this is a Satanic delusion because we know that God’s name is the Jehovah of Israel, and his form is that of Jesus of Nazareth.  He, the God of the Bible, said, “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.” –Exodus 20:4.     

This six and a half ton rectangular block of iron ore polished at the top and lit from above was a present from the king of Sweden.  It is meant to be the final resting space of the “Ark of Hope”. (See lower left of page).  This mockery of the Biblical Ark of the Covenant, is covered on each side by representations of earth, wind, fire and water.  It contains a pseudo ‘Ten Commandments’ made up of a sixteen point value system expounding the virtues of a ‘creation (vs. creator) centered theology’.  This theology is the GAIA, or mother earth gospel now sweeping the globe in various forms of ‘green’ morality and environmental practices.     

This brazen show of “New Age” religion adopted by the international community as a hope for peaceful co-existence on the earth, is really nothing new at all, but simply promises that same old lie “ye shall be as gods,”.  Hammerskjold  boasts, “There is an ancient saying that the sense of a vessel is not in its shell but in the void.  So it is with this room.  It is for those who come here to fill the void with what they find in their center of stillness.”

Undermining the Nation State

Undermining the Nation State


By Dr. Douglas F. Levesque, Founder of The Levesque Institute
  
The benefits of modern life such as the world wide web, jet travel, and free trade have definitely made the world seem like a smaller place.  The fostering of economic interdependency is known as ‘globalization’, and, by itself, poses no threat to the Biblical model of geopolitics known as the ‘nation-state’ model; however, along with this “flatter world” phenomenon has come the renewal of another model.  It is, historically, the darker, more deceptive worldview of a one world empire now popularized as ‘globalism’.  Globalization is a recognizing of effective national principles and practices benefiting any society, then kneading these same principles into prosperity and peace.  The United States, Japan, and Germany have become leaders in globalization and reaped it’s benefits.  They have done so without compromising national sovereignty.  Globalism, however, is the antithesis of such proven methodology, and seeks to remove or rewrite not only national boundaries, but the successful national values that brace any country’s vibrancy.  Utopian one world dream-chasers camouflage their intentions by confusing the distinctions between globalization and globalism, and by creating international platforms for heralding a new world order.  There can be no mistaking that the philosophical framework of the modern United Nations and the European Union makes them the chief heralds for globalism seeking to undermine the nation state.

Failure of the Nations 

When nations forget God, they also stray from the handbook of societal life, the Bible.  The globalization vs. globalism conflict is an ancient one that started in the book of Genesis.  God decrees that man should have dominion over his creation as his servant. The serpent likewise supposes that man should be dominant over creation as God’s equal.  These words are more than semantics, and have had far reaching results.  Man has wrongly chosen the latter path.  This insidious rebellion has continued and is reflected in both personal and national failures.  Some countries have rightly recognized “God gi- ven liberties”, while others have “mandated state allowed activities”.  These are age old differences reflected in such contrasts as capitalism vs. communism, and democracy vs. dictatorship.  torship.  The Satanic strategies of globalism are only attractive where national policies have failed and become repressive.  Bible advocates have flourished in the United States and have thusly been able to counter or offset American failures, but what happens when the Bible advocates are marginalized?

Super Power Polarization  

These two contrasting national approaches have historically squared off in a regional and now global polarization of competing ideas.  David and Goliath like showdowns are seen in times past, with Hebrew and Philistine philosophies squaring off in conflict after conflict.  This cycle of war in culture and in arms continues to polarize societies, continents and worldviews. Today there are many who view the world as a divine creation, under God’s control and destiny, divided into nations who either do or do not reflect Biblical views and values.  There are equally as many, and perhaps a great many more perspectives, who see the globe as a universal body, to be singularly governed by  creation, under God’s control and destiny, divided into nations who either do or do not reflect Biblical views and values.  There are equally as many, and perhaps a great many more, perspectives who see the globe as a universal body, to be singularly governed by man, for man; who see the Judeo Christian ethic (The Bible) as the chief obstacle to planetary salvation.  Sometimes competing globalist views unite around this one common thread; “Biblical thought is poison.” 

Global Economics 

It is this distaste and distrust for the Bible foundation of good society  that formulates the hypothesis and proceeding actions of globalists.  A global economics is about more than money.  It is not the same as, or as simple as, just the globalization of markets.  It is the re-defining of the foundational elements of the command and control of people.  It is the attempt to eradicate Scriptural influence and replace it with humanistic values like, “we know what is best for mankind”, and “our ecological views will bring forth salvation.”  The United Nations has been a breeding ground for such dogmas, and have as their supposed authority, not only international laws and agencies, but a host of NGO’s that attempt to coalesce their raw philosophy with what touches the hearts of ordinary people, thus by passing the nation state proper and perverting the masses directly.  Only Biblical concepts and their advocates can postulate and effect good government with the results being successful nation states; and only Scriptural nation states can fight off the serpentine squeeze into a Babel like order that raises its head again in Revelation’s pages.

Genesis 3:13  “And the LORD God said unto the woman, what is this that thou hast done?  And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.” 

Isaiah 14:12 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground which didst weaken the nations!” 

II Corinthians 11:3  “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 

Revelation 12:9  “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
