So what is the New World Order?
By now I think we all know the answer. Strobe Talbott said
that in the 21st century, national sovereignty would cease to
exist. We would all answer to a single global authority.
Walter Cronkite said the same thing in no uncertain terms.
He said a system of world government is mandatory.
Plainly stated, New World Order is world government!
So all of these revered world leaders from Franklin Roosevelt,
to President H.W. Bush, to Colin Powell, to Pope Benedict
XVI, to Henry Kissinger, to Joe Biden, are all promoting a
system of world government when they endorse the New
World Order? Right! Absolutely right!
It’s all prophesied
Should the rapid surge toward world government that we are
experiencing at this time surprise us? Not if we are familiar
with the prophecies of the Bible. The scriptures clearly foretell
that a world government will appear on earth just before the
Battle of Armageddon and the second coming of Jesus Christ.
David Rockefeller–1994 Daniel 7:23 describes the world government this way:
In a statement to the UN Business Council, Rockefeller “Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom

are probably unconstitutional. So far the American people

Why? Because of fear created by the crisis we are in—just

Editor’s note: This article is particularly important since the U.S. House of Rep-
resentatives just passed a Hate Crimes bill. It has now been sent to the U.S. Sen-

BRINGING ‘THOUGHT CRIME’ TO AMERICA
Proponents of “hate crime” laws say they are needed to protect minorities from acts of violence. However,
criminal acts are already illegal. “Hate crime” laws add penalties to a criminal sentence if the person had a
“hateful intent” or “thought crime” toward the victim.
In 2005, anti-war demonstrators came to the Tremont Temple Baptist Church in Boston, to disrupt the
“Love Won Out” conference, which featured former homosexuals and how to overcome homosexual desires.
Obscenities, shouts of, “Shut it down,” and threats of violence could be heard. Although Massachusetts law
prohibits interfering with constitutional rights to freedom of speech, the police declined to enforce it.

In 2004, Ake Green was the first pastor prosecuted after
Sweden added “sexual orientation” to its “hate crime” law.
Green was sentenced to one month in prison. The public
prosecutor said, “Collecting Bible verses on this topic makes
this hate speech.” Sweden’s chief prosecutor appealed the
verdict, and the Swedish Supreme Court ruled unanimously
to dismiss the charge. “We hope this will deter other at-
tempts to censor Christian ministers from delivering Bible-

Dr. Laura Schlessinger, an Orthodox Jew and radio talk-

Schlessinger contended that people with unwanted homo-
