Globalism's Siren Song
By William T. James
Come, young citizens of the world, we are one, we are one.
Come, young citizens of the world, we are one, we are one.
We have one hope, we have one dream, and with one voice we
sing: Peace, prosperity, and love for all mankind.
The lyrics are set to an enchanting, rhythmic melody and are
sung by a chorus of sweet-voiced children. Soon you are
humming, then singing along. What could possibly be wrong with
those sentiments so innocently expressed? Peace, prosperity, and
love for all mankind-are these not among the most noble of
Powerful humanistic allurements beckon seductively, promising a
golden future if all of earth's people will come together as one.
Such a glorious world order, long dreamed about and even
fervently pursued, seems at last achievable. Those who hold the
worldview that national boundaries
must fall and sovereignties must diminish because we are all
citizens of planet Earth passionately embrace the earth shrinking
technologies that science continues to produce. For example, the
Internet. Yes, the Utopian dream at last seems achievable.
However, while the sirens of globalism - like the twin sisters
who lured unwary sailors to their deaths in Homer's The
Odyssey -sing their lovely, mesmerizing songs of New World
Order, the words pronounced by the Ancient of Days
reverberate through the corridors of antiquity and leap at this
generation from the pages of God's Holy Word:
Behold, the people are one and they have all one language, and
this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from
them which they have imagined to do (Genesis 11:6).
The Creator of all things was not expressing His pride in His
creation called man. God was concerned and saddened because
all peoples of that time were united in their determination to
build a world to their own specifications. And why was this very
first globalist effort displeasing to the One who built into man the
marvelous ability to do whatever man could imagine? Did not
God himself create man in His own image, infusing the creature
with phenomenal creative drive?
The Cradle of Globalism
It seems at first glance a supreme paradox: The Creator made
the creature called man in His own image, gifting him with
powerful conceptual abilities, and thus with the ingenuity to build
a tower that could ultimately reach into the heavens. Then, just
as man began to fulfill his potential, the infallible Creator-God
manifested His displeasure in the people of that day as recorded
in this biblical account:
The whole earth was of one language and of one speech. And it
came to pass as they journeyed from the east that they found a
plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. And they said
to one another, Come, let us make bricks and bum them
thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for
mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build a city and a tower
whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name,
lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which
the children of men built. And the Lord said, Behold, the people
are one and they have all one language, and this they begin to
do; and now nothing will be restrained from them which they
have imagined to do. Come, let us go down and there confound
their language, that they may not understand one another's
speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from there upon the
face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.
Therefore I's the name of it called Babel, because the Lord did
there confound the language of all the earth; and from there did
the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth
(Genesis 11: 1-9).
God Almighty gave the human race a touch of His own genius,
but when those people used it in this rebellious way, He
confused that genius by disrupting their ability to communicate.
Thereby He put an end to the globalist project. God's dealings
with His creation seemed incongruous: Did He change His mind
about having made man in His own image? Did He resent
competition in matters involving the creativity which this building
might have represented? Why did He break up the one-world
building effort at Babel?
Image of God, Imagination of Man
God puts His mighty finger upon the answer to the question My
did He break up the one-world building effort at Babel? His answer
at the same time pierces to the heart of the reason He had to
destroy by flood the entire antediluvian world, with the exception
of Noah and his family and select animal life.
The root cause of why God scattered the Babel builders, thereby
ending their venture in globalism, is found even farther back in
human history than the era of the flood. God's Word records
about those ancient times and His divine judgment: "The Lord
smelled a sweet savor; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not
again curse the ground anymore for man's sake; for the
imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I
again smite anymore every thing living, as I have done" (Genesis
The key thought from the mind of God for our purposes here is
"The imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth." Let us
examine this indictment in the framework of its context.
God declared that He would never again curse the ground as He
did following man's rebellion in the Garden of Eden. Neither, He
said, would He ever again smite all living things as He did with
the worldwide flood of Noah's day. God placed between these
two promises the statement of truth about the fallen state of man,
a fact absolutely rejected by today's humanistic social architects.
Their denial of this reality is at the core of globalism. So too is the
demented assertion that man is evolving toward a higher order
of being that will ultimately produce heaven on earth: peace,
prosperity, and love for all mankind.
Adam's and Eve's God-attuned senses must have changed from
perfection to imperfection in one cataclysmic moment. What a
heart-wrenching scene it must have been when they willfully
disobeyed God, choosing instead to yield to the tempter, who told
them they would be as God when they ate from the tree of
knowledge of good and evil. How devastating must have been
that eternity-rending moment when those magnificently beautiful
humans discarded the effulgence of God that had shrouded their
nakedness. The image of God emanating from within their
beings must have begun to dissipate, to change into frightening,
darkened countenances. So, too, their minds no doubt convoluted
within their sin-infected thought processes. Both image and
imagination altered in that moment into a perpetual state of
opposition to the Creator with whom they had previously walked
in perfect trust and love along the Garden's lush pathways.
Mankind's course has been spiraling downward since that willful
decision by the first man to do what was right in his own eyes
rather than obey God. The fall brought a curse upon planet Earth
and death to man. Every generation of people since Adam and
Eve were evicted from Eden contributes ample proof that "the
heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked"
From the first murder, when Cain slew his brother Abel, to the
slaughter during the more than 15,000 wars of recorded history,
to the most recent terrorist atrocity or one-on-one killing, fallen
man continues through his vile actions to testify to the truth of
God's indictment: "The imagination of man's heart is evil from his
youth" (Genesis 8:21).
We make the mystery of the paradox more understandable
when we reconsider these fascinating facts. God, who
is perfect in all His ways, created humankind perfectly, actually
making man in His own image. Once again we realize that He
gifted man with a powerful imagination so that whatever man
could imagine, he could eventually do. However, when man
began to use that imagination in building a tower that would
reach into heaven, God was displeased and stopped the project
by confounding the language of the builders, then scattering them
abroad. We again consider the question: If a perfect God created a
perfect man, why did God act in such a seemingly harsh manner when
the creature used his God-given talent as recounted in the story of
The answer, of course, is that God also created man with free
moral will, or volition. The creature was not made a robot, but
was made with brilliant conceptual abilities and was given
freedom of choice-which includes discernment for choosing
wisely. But Adam chose to disobey God and so sin entered into
the world. The human bloodstream became instantly
contaminated by the infection. The minds of men, including their
imaginations, became darkened in the mystery of iniquity that
The paradox understood, the question is now answerable: Mat is
wrong with people coming together in a united effort to construct a
one-world order with the objectives of achieving peace, prosperity,
and love for all mankind? The answer is that man is spiritually
separated from the Creator because of original sin. His thinking is
therefore fatally flawed. Nothing good can come from thinking
and planning that excludes God.
Had God allowed the globalists of Nimrod's day to continue
their tower project, He would have had to ultimately curse the
earth again as He did when Adam disobeyed, or He would have
had to destroy all living things upon the earth as He did because
of the corruption that required cleansing by the great flood of
Noah's day. God was not acting harshly at Babel, nor was He
acting contrary to His perfect character.
Rather, He was displaying unfathomable love by keeping His
promises to the tiny fallen creature who was deserving of
judgment and for whom He would one day sacrifice His only
begotten Son in order to redeem them.
The World Order Schemers
Children of the tower of Babel builders today carry on the
globalist agenda despite the differences in language and
geographical separation. They circumvent the barriers through
use of technologies designed to serve their oneworld purposes.
The siren song grows louder: We have one hope, we have one
dream, and with one voice we sing., Peace, prosperity, and love for all
The obsessive drive toward bringing all men, women,
and children into one-world configuration arose shortly after
the time Jesus Christ walked the earth. It is perhaps
indicative of our sordid day that since the time Jesus walked the
earth in the flesh, this era has been called A.D., but now we
are to acknowledge that we live in the period of human
history called the Common Era, or CE The revisionists, you see,
demand that all vestiges of Jesus Christ be erased from even
our lexicon. There must be many ways for the people of the
coming New World Order to come to God, if indeed there
is a God.
Jesus Christ, who said He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life,
and that no one can come to the Father but by Him, simply does
not fit the globalist mold.
Thinkers who formed that mold wanted there to be no doubt that
man, through his intellect, can do whatever he imagines. He can
build a perfect world without input from any deity who might or
might not be out there somewhere. This arrogant attitude of self-
sufficiency is summed up in the document titled "The
Declaration of Interdependence,"
released by the United Nations' World Affairs Council on
January 30, 1976. It reads in part:
Two centuries ago, our forefathers brought forth a new nation;
now we must join with others to bring forth a new world order.
To establish a new world order ... it is essential that mankind
free itself from limitations of national prejudice.... We affirm
that the economy of all nations is a seamless web, and that no
nation can any longer effectively maintain its processes for
production and monetary systems without recognizing the
necessity of collaborative regulation by international authorities.
We call upon all nations to strengthen the United Nations and
other institutions of world order.
The zeal for stampeding everyone into a totally controlled global
village has not subsided. Elitist power brokers continue to fuel
the humanist engine that drives the globalist machinery with
grandiose declarations and promises of heaven on earth.
The Secretary General of Habitat 11, the most recent U.N.
forum aimed at laying groundwork for the New World Order,
predicted that there will be "... a new beginning of the requests
to implement the actions called for at this unprecedented
continuum of global conferences that have marked the closing
decade of this century."
He then made this ominous statement: "A new global social
contract for building sustainable human settlements must be
forged for the new global urban world order...." He made his
statement in Istanbul, Turkey.
For superbly documented analyses on these U.N. planners and
what their plans portend, read carefully Chapters 2 and 8 of this
book. Berit Kjos and Chris Corbett portray in
stunning fashion the humanity-convulsing realities that confront
America and all other nations while we approach the year 2000.
J.R. Church gave the following astute observations about the
extremely troubling U.N. agenda. His report predates the June
1996 Istanbul conference, thus providing excellent background
for helping us understand the developments we continue to see.
The United Nations released a report January 1, 1994, setting
the agenda for upcoming conferences designed to establish
world government in the near future.... Many are beginning to
ask how long it will take the U.N. to implement plans to
accomplish their New World Order ... I
Certainly God remains in control. Those who are His children
through belief in His Son, Jesus Christ, should not look with
trepidation upon these foreboding harbingers of the coming
tribulation period described by Jesus in the Olivet discourse.
However, it is abundantly obvious that developments we have
seen in wave after wave of U.N. intrusions into the lives of
Americans should make all of us know that real agendas and
activities lie behind our concerns.
All the World As One
Neo-Babel builders construct even their music in a way that
clearly demonstrates the Luciferian desire to usurp God's
throne. John Lennon's universally popular song could easily be
mistaken as portraying the biblically prophesied millennial reign
of Jesus Christ. But Lennon, like Lenin, preached manmade
heaven on earth-an imitative mockery of the true Messiah's
coming kingdom. The words and melody are infectious.
Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today ...
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace ...
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one ...
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world ...
You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday
you'll join us And the world will live as one.'
Globalism's siren song is a one-world anthem that the true child
of God cannot follow to its murderous, destructive end. The
Holy Spirit within us is the tether who binds us to the masthead
of truth. With Jesus Christ as the Captain of our salvation, we
navigate through the treacherous seas of our time. Still, we must
be alert and heed the wake-up call.
Globalist Storm Warning
There seemed to come a calming, refreshing breeze that
restored common sense in America with the election of
November 8, 1994. The vicious, destructive winds of socialistic
madness had begun to stir early in the twentieth century. They
grew to full hurricane strength while being channeled through
increasingly liberal legislative and judicial bodies, with powerful
assistance from equally liberal media.
The storm raged throughout the nation's culture by the time the
1990s arrived. Occasional executive-branch resistance slowed it
only momentarily while it roared against the country's rapidly
weakening moral barriers.
Suddenly, just as the great storm seemed to reach its full fury,
American voters arose almost as one entity and the howling
leftist assault was brought to a dead calm.
Many reasons have been suggested for the loud repudiation of
liberal ideology and its influence upon America's governmental
policies. Certainly, the electorate's majority voice unmistakably
demanded that politicians begin serving the people in a way that
benefits the nation rather than continue serving their own
parochial interests at taxpayers' expense, as had been the case
But a sudden pulse of wind disrupted the calm only days after
the people's actions in the voting booths brought the tempest to a
standstill. The gust seemed to burst from nowhere, although the
clouds of its origin had been seething for many years in the
financial stratosphere of the European Common Market.
GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade) swept down
on the U.S. ship of state while the nation sat in the calm eye of
the storm. NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement)
joined in the sovereignty-assaulting blow.
The new storm front is even now whipping up monstrous
economic waves which might very well swamp the nation in
their wake. What the socialist engineers of the first part of the
hurricane could not accomplish with their internal assault, the
socialist world economic powers that comprise the backside of
the sovereignty-killing storm managed to achieve with little more
than a tropical front. When the American voters swept the one-
nation-under- Godlessness liberal Utopian schemers out the front
door, the ejected ones quickly ran around the side of the house,
where they joined with the globalist New World Order builders,
who were being welcomed in the back door with eager smiles
and open arms by a lame-duck Congress which was composed
in part by rational-thinking patriots who should have detected the
But there are none so blind as those who will not see. Under the
guise of free trade, the one-world parasitic apparatus has now
apparently been contrived and has begun siphoning strength and
resolve from this nation and others. The globalist elitists now
channel America's wealth, along with funds from other
geopolitical and economic spheres, into Third-World countries at
a rate greater than ever before. They constantly strive to solidify
their one-world power base through material goods giveaways.
They continue to create and consolidate an ever-increasing
constituency dependent on the New World Order hierarchy for
absolutely everything as those poorest of earth's people move
through their miserable lives from cradle to grave.
The one-world schemers would have us believe that all this
noblesse oblige is being undertaken on behalf of humanity for
humanity's own good: egalitarianism at its most glorious peak of
Mankind in general and Americans in particular fell prey to the
sedative effects of globalism's siren song while the eye
of the storm passed calmly overhead. GATT certainly was not
perceived to be a storm warning by most; it was rather
proclaimed to be salvation for the economic stability of the
world. God, however, is never fooled and cannot be sedated. He
put out the storm warning long ago that just such a time in
human history will arrive when an elitist ruling class will combine
its power and authority to create a mechanism of control through
which it will attempt to enslave every human being on the planet.
God's warning foretold that the world's authority and power will
ultimately be given to one man, the world's last and most terrible
despot (read Daniel 9:27, Revelation 13, and Revelation
What Is America's Role?
Those who analyze prophetic matters have long puzzled over
why the United States of America is not mentioned specifically
in God's prophetic Word. Certainly there has never been a
nation more blessed or more active in the spread of the gospel of
Jesus Christ. Small and seemingly insignificant nations and
regions like Libya and Ethiopia are recorded in passages of
prophecy yet to be fulfilled, but not America. Could we with the
superhurried movement of America into the World Trade
Organization (WTO) be witnessing at least a partial answer to
the question of what will happen to the United States, since it is
not mentioned by name in biblical prophecy?
John Gizzy, editor of Human Events, in commenting on the highly
questionable way the U.S. was speedily ushered into the GATT
arrangement and membership in the WTO, said:
I don't think anyone will argue that we have to play in an
international market. The world is a smaller place
and the relaxed tariffs of agreement on the part of the U.S. will
help us get into a world market and sell our products with ease
overseas.... Nonetheless, the problems persist. Some thoughts:
If you accept that free trade is good and necessary, why on
earth do we need a 22,000-plus page agreement that only one
senator who voted on it bothered to read? I might add that after
actually reading through the document, Sen. Hank Brown of
Colorado voted "no." And could we not simply have bilateral
agreements with individual countries we want to trade with?
For that matter, why didn't we have a trade agreement in one simple
sentence: "All tariffs will decrease 20 percent per year over the
next five years"? We didn't do it the simple way. We needed a
new, superpowerful, secret World Trade Organization, one with
350 employees and a $7 million annual budget, a fourth of which
Uncle Sam will pay for to implement GATT. There was great
concern that the WTO, which represents 123 countries, permits
the United States only one vote and no veto. And to be sure,
small countries, such as Castro's Cuba-or any of them-could
vote to sock it to the U.S. with million-dollar-plus fines if local
regulations violated world environmental rules....
avenue of passage for GATT that was utilized by our men and
women in Washington makes us a bit suspicious. If this is such
a significant agreement, with such a far-reaching impact, why
were only 20 hours of debate permitted, with no amendments,
and why on earth did a lame-duck Congress, a huge number of
whose members were defeated last month, make a decision that
will impact you and me well into the twenty-first century? What
would have been the matter with the next Congress taking
office in January dealing with this lofty agreement? What were
Bill Clinton and other GATT supporters afraid of? ... But as it
and as the vote was taken, I could not help but think of the
warnings issued by one of the greatest Constitutional scholars in
the U.S. Senate, the late Sen. Sam J. Ervin of North Carolina.
One of his greatest apprehensions was that [of] the danger
[which] international agreements posed to our national
sovereignty. In Ervin's words, "The United States has never lost
a war nor won a treaty."'
A Reprieve for America?
To repeat the opening thought expressed at the beginning of this
section: With the election of November 8, 1994, there seemed to
come a calming, refreshing breeze that promised a return to
government that serves the people rather than seeks to rule with
mastery over them. America seemed to have been given a
reprieve from the death sentence which the woolly-minded had
pronounced upon religious and a growing number of other
liberties. But how deep a commitment to return to those earlier,
saner principles (and thus how realistic the reprieve) remains to
To those who have truly studied the Word of God, it is clear that
man-made government that refuses to be guided by God's
principles of morality will inevitably degenerate and fall to
tyranny within its own borders or without. Political parties
cannot muster the fortitude to either restrain or constrain the
oppression and tyranny that incessantly seek to enslave.
Government of, by, and for a moral people can ensure those
inalienable rights which our forefathers fought, bled, and died to
secure for us. It is we the people, under God, who must
determine to govern wisely. President George Washington said
in his farewell address, "Reason and experience both forbid us
that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious
principle." John Adams, America's second President, said, "The
United States Constitution was made only
for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the
government of any other."
We must begin by governing our own lives in a way that is
pleasing to the Creator. There is only one way to please Him,
and that is to put ourselves under the lordship of His blessed
Son, Jesus Christ, who shed His blood on the cross of Calvary
for the remission of our sins. How wonderful it would be if not
just the majority of American people but a majority of people
throughout the entire world turned to Jesus Christ in humble
But, tragically, we can be certain that this will not happen. God
in His omniscience tells us through His Holy Word that in the
last days perilous times shall come and that evil men and
seducers will become worse and worse, deceiving and being
deceived. The man who will be the world's last and most vicious
tyrant is perhaps even now waiting in the shadows just beyond
the spotlight's circle. He will take the crown given to him by his
New World Order sycophants and use the platform of globalism
they have erected to build a monolithic throne upon which he will
ultimately sit, claiming to be deity while demanding worship.
Paving the Way for Antichrist
Today, movers and shakers in the world of global politics are
paving the way for the world's last dictator, called in God's Word
the Antichrist. They do so most likely oblivious to biblical
prophecy. But whether wittingly or unwittingly, they rush
headlong into that dark night of apocalypse.
David Allen Lewis, one of the most reliable observers of
eschatology that I know, reported the following about the latest
developments on the globalist's agenda.
What went on in San Francisco, September 1995, was nothing
less than extraordinary. Mikhail Gorbachev and a bevy of
politicians, futurologists, and New Agers took the world a giant
step closer to global dictatorship. From September 20 to October
1, 1995, a landmark meeting, headed by Marxist Mikhail
Gorbachev, former head of the Soviet Union, was conducted at
the Fairmont Hotel and a nearby Masonic Auditorium in San
Francisco. Billed as the State of the World Forum-Toward a
New Civilization, it was one of the most significant steps
forward in implementing the coming world government, which
President Clinton recently referred to as the "global village." It
was previously hailed as the New World Order by former
President George Bush in many speeches made while he was
president of the USA.
Jim Garrison, executive director of the Gorbachev Foundation,
made a very revealing statement in the May 31 issue of SF
Weekly, a far left San Francisco newspaper: "Over the next 20 to
30 years we are going to end up with the world government...
it's inevitable." Garrison writes of the problems of violence in the
USA and the rest of the world, proclaiming that "... in and
through this turbulence is the recognition that we have to
empower the United Nations and that we have to govern and
regulate human interaction." Garrison is from the New Age
Esalen Institute and Soviet American Exchange Program, San
Yes, the Cold War is over, but looming before us is the
ideological Hot War of hegemony (domination) and oppression.
The globalists know that the human race must be blinded to the
real intentions of these elitist one-worlders if they are to
succeed. They must endeavor to use the media to brainwash
you into thinking that they have your best interests at heart.
I have no doubt that history will record The World Forum as a
momentous occasion in the annals of the coming Antichrist.
And the world lies in darkness, ignorant, blindly stumbling along,
vaguely uneasy but nonetheless pathetic. . . .
Lewis quoted from the document titled "State of the World Forum-
Toward a New Civilization," September 20-October 1, 1995, San
Francisco. He writes:
... On page three of the document, the mission of the conference is
clearly stated. "The State of the World Forum is the launching of a
multiyear global initiative to focus on the fundamental challenges and
opportunities confronting humanity as we enter the next phase of
human development. It is being held in the belief that at this
momentous juncture in history-between the ending of the Cold War
and the dawn of the new century-we are experiencing the birth of the
first global civilization.... The goal of the Forum is to articulate a clearer
vision of new international priorities. Its product will be an ongoing
process to generate innovative approaches to the challenges facing
human society. This historic gathering will 1) Analyze the current state
of the world, and 2) Launch a multiyear process, culminating in the year
2000, to articulate the fundamental priorities, values, and actions
necessary to constructively shape our common future.
"Ultimately, the State of the World Forum is an invitation. It is a call to
individuals throughout the world to join in this dialogue and to work
directly with the convening of committed individuals as
an active member of an historic and timely global initiative .......
Lewis writes further:
. . On the last page of the Document we read, :,The State of the World
Forum is a project of the Gorbachev Foundation/USA, an international
nonpartisan, nonprofit educational foundation created in 1992 to
address the immediate challenges of the post-Cold-War world and
assist in the process of building global consensus for our common

profile names are familiar to most Americans. For further information

The Lull Before the Storm
Thankfully, even though God's judgment upon sin is
sure, He is also slow to anger and His mercy is great. It is my opinion
that we are currently in a lull that God has graciously
granted just before the prophesied end-of-time storm that will devastate
a wrath-deserving generation. Even so, a brisk
wind is already snapping the flag of warning that apocalypse
God the Holy Spirit earnestly and tenderly beckons all
who will heed His call to take shelter within the only harbor where
protection from the deadly whirlwind to come can be
found. That safe harbor is Jesus Christ. Those who refuse to accept the
haven or safety offered by Christ will perish beneath the raging,
crashing surge as surely as did the antediluvians during the judgment
of Noah's day.
