What We Can Learn From History
The news is revealing there is a Global Reset or Great Reset coming. Our own Prime Minister is touting that the Covid Pandemic is giving opportunity for a global reset. I truly believe a Global reset is going to take place. The Scriptures explain that at the end of this age known as the times of the Gentiles here will be a global program that will be executed by a brilliant leader that will emerge. The only thing is the first global reset and the first brilliant charismatic leader will not bring a good global reset. It will seem sensible for the world to work together and address problems in a global community sort of way. However, because man is man and man loves power and “all power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely” as Lord Acton so rightly expressed after observing in his political career that man and governments cannot handle power or authority very well. The more power a man acquires the more trouble we can expect and democracies seem to keep a check and balance to government power or should providing it represents a government for the people and by the people. Power in a democracy has laws, checks and balances so that power does not go unleashed. Sir Winston Churchill said, “Democracy is a most despicable form of government but it is the best we have.” Wherever democracies have been exercised with integrity and good politics and supported by good laws there have been good countries and good things happen in those countries during the time that democracies stay healthy. However, for good democracies to flourish it is imperative that the citizens of those democracies have good character, good education and good morals based on a Judeo Christian value system to prosper. When those things are eroded a democracy is doomed to fail. The democracies around the world are crumbling. Socialism is going to replace our democracies soon. Democratic governments will begin to fail and will be replaced by socialistic systems where there will be absolute power over the populations and the rich will rule and the poor will be enslaved and crime will flourish. We are all being prepared for it with government lockdowns, government systems of surveillance and government providing or pretending to be for the good of the people. It is a system of take from the haves and give to the have not’s. It sounds good but history has proved over and over socialism does not work. The system makes more people into have not’s and the people who have will soon loose everything they have. Countries that recently are examples of this are Venezuela in South America and Zimbabwe in Africa. Both countries tried their utopia of socialism and both countries ended up in total devastation with economies and currency worth nothing.
We are hearing the terms “Global Reset” or “The Great Reset” more and more these days. It is interesting that the scripture, written 2000 years ago, foretold of a time when there would be a global one-world authority that would try to rule and bring peace to a troubled world. I believe the global reset describes a rush to bring in global government and it is in high gear with some of the most powerful, rich global elites leading it forward. One of those individuals is Bill Gates. He has developed a software program called ID2020. Gates has resigned from Microsoft to devote all of his working energy toward this Global reset for the world, which will be connected globally with a computer system that will regulate and know everything about everyone. It seems the Covid-19 pandemic may be used to fast track this global agenda. This pandemic came along at just the right time to help push the ID2020 agenda forward.
Centuries ago there was news of a special birth that rippled out as far as Persia (Iran) or Iraq (Babylon) and wherever the news landed it sparked a caravan of seekers. These men were called wise men in the first book of the New Testament, in Matthew 2:1,2: “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.”
The birth of our Saviour in that nice manger scene that we see year after year, with Joseph and Mary and baby Jesus, looks like a time of peace and tranquility. However, the very opposite was true about the birth of Christ. The time of his birth actually included much stress and turmoil.
It seems this Christmas is going to be like no other Christmas ever experienced in Canadian history. We entered a global shutdown early in 2020 due to the pandemic, shortly after Christmas 2019 but here we are in December of 2020 and things are still shut down. The first thing I want to express to everyone is: be thankful we live in Saskatchewan. I have friends all over the world connected with me through media and ministry who tell me there are some areas that are suffering greatly with food shortages, loss of income and job losses that is causing undue hardship and suffering. And sadly, the loss of many lives. We who live in Saskatchewan, with its a small population and big open skies, can enjoy some normal in the midst of restrictions, stress and pressure. At the moment, we live in the best place in Canada with plenty of snow for cross-country skiing or snowmobiling.
