The Biblical Demise Of The Darbyite New World Order Scam

    The Bible does not teach that the world will flow together into one-world church and a one-world government at the end-time, but rather, that it will fall apart.

    Friends, the true biblical end-time scenario is that of the ten horns hating the whore and burning her with fire (Revelation 17:16-17), and that happens "up-front" as the introductory event in the opening up of the day of the Lord (Matthew 24:37-39; II Peter 3:10).

    No future seven years. No secret rapture beforehand. No restored old Testament Davidic monarchy afterward. No rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. No career of personal Antichrist making and breaking a covenant with the Jews. None of these popular expectations--absolutely none of those "fruitful imaginations"--dispensational theorists have painted as "end-time" events.

    Rather, a massive, sudden and unexpected judgment of fire on that deceived society identified in prophecy as the Roman Babylon.

    Our nation--much like the ancient Roman Empire that went past the zenith of its kingdom glory and power unto its determined historical demise--is now entering the throes of internal collapse. Unless we repent of our sin and wickedness, it remains only for our external enemies to do us in. God help us get unblindfolded, see it coming, and wake up!

The grand fact of the broad sweep of history is that empires rise and empires fall. We are an empire. We have risen in time. We will fall in time as well.

Let not our trust and absorbing preoccupation, then, be in any this-worldly empire of which we are a part, but in the kingdom of the living God, which transcends and trumps all other empires, and will last forever. Amen.
