THE GLOBAL ECONOMY – A FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION?

16And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead,

17and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.

It is this passage in Revelation 13 that causes many Christians to believe that there will eventually be a one world government along with a one world “currency.”

I lean towards this view myself, because of the above verses and other scriptures.  Since the prophecies about Jesus were fulfilled perfectly, I can’t see those that deal with future events having any less accuracy.

Evidently, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon made a statement on Tuesday that would cause many to take notice.  In Cancun, Mexico, at the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, Conference of the Parties 16, Mr. Moon said:

“We need to fundamentally transform the global economy – based on low-carbon, clean energy resources.”

German economist Ottmar Edenhofer, an official with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, said in an interview with Neue Zürcher Zeitung on November 14:

“… it’s a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization. The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War. … we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. … One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore ….”

One question I have is: “Why could I not find this story in any mainline sources, including Fox?”

The best I could find was this headline:

U.S. nears agreement to curb destruction of world’s rain forests

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/12/07/AR2010120707171.html

Are Christians the only ones concerned about the global ambitions of the U.N. or are Christians paranoid?  I think the former is much closer to the truth.

How much the U.N. will be a part of the two verses above are pure speculation.  Jesus told us to “watch,” and that’s what I intend to do.
