    Sunday, February 27, 2011, 8:02 a.m. – When I woke up this morning, this set of words, in this order, were in my mind: “Staunton, Gloss (or Glass), and Tin.” Those are not words that would be in my mind through natural order, so I knew that God had placed those words in my mind for a reason. So, I Googled the words and the search rendered a link to a site where one could purchase a Carnegie Staunton Chess Set. So, I recorded in my journal that this search had led me to a chess set. Then, as I was sitting on the sofa listening to my husband share with me from his time with the Lord this morning, and there was a pause in our conversation, all of a sudden a light dawned in my head. “What is contained within a chess set?” – Kings, queens, bishops, knights, castles (or rooks - chariots) and pawns. Another meaning for the word “rook” is “a swindler or cheat, especially at cards” (Encarta).

    Then I prayed, “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening,” and I read I Corinthians 5:


    My Understanding: I wanted to understand more about this illustration God had given to me this morning with the chess set. I think I understand pretty well the idea of kings and queens. The Lord has often shown me knights as the Knights of Templar and/or a modern-day version of the Knights of the Roundtable, which I see as the U.N. Security Council or as the elitist rulers of the New World Order. The name of the chess set begins with the name “Carnegie,” which is a famous name here in the eastern part of the U.S.A. And, the family name is listed among the names of the International Bankers, Top Globalists, and Heads of the New World Order (reference below). Bishops are generally associated with the Roman Catholic Church, though certainly this could be a reference to any religious leaders in senior positions over a region or district, in general. Then, I looked up the word pawn.


    My husband told me that the Lord gave him the words “Check and Checkmate” to give to me, so I looked up their meanings, as well. A check is a threat to capture a king. If the king cannot get himself out of check, the game ends in checkmate and the king loses. Only this is talking about real kings and kingdoms and the game is deadly and it is for keeps. And, the players are the nations of the world, and the people of the nations, the pawns in the game of “take over the world,” who are used to further the purposes of the New World Order in conquering kings and kingdoms and ultimately in taking complete control (checkmate) of the nations of the world.

    Then, I read the news. As I read the headlines, I could not help but see this global chess game in action with the kings of nations in check and the Global Order ready to declare “checkmate” at any moment. The situation in Libya, in particular, stood out to me. As I read the news stories (referenced below) about Libya, I immediately saw a chess game in progress, only I believe the Lord is showing something very specific here and that is that the players on both sides are from the same set (Carnegie Staunton Chess Set), and that they are all contained within the same tin (container) and that the chess pieces all have the same glass or gloss finish, i.e. “deception and superficial attractiveness that often conceals something unattractive or inferior” (Encarta Dictionary). The Lord has previously shown me this about the situation between North and South Korea, and the situations in Egypt and other nations in the east presently going through unrest. The Lord is saying that the pro-government forces and the anti-government forces are all on the same team, and that the New World Order is controlling the game pieces because they own them and that this is about check and checkmate and about pawns and people being murdered in order to promote and to accomplish the goals and objectives of this global order that is taking over the world one nation and one government at a time, only at a very fast rate right now.

    The Lord, I believe, is giving me a picture here that what the news media reports about as happening in these other nations is mostly a lie for the intention to deceive. They give it a different appearance and act as though the U.N., the USA, the E.U., et al are against all this violence and killing, but in reality they are the ones doing the killing of innocent civilians and of believers in Jesus Christ just because they believe in Jesus. The Bible told us this was coming, so it should not surprise us that it is here upon us.

    With regard to this passage of scripture and the practical application I believe the Lord would want me to receive through this teaching in relation to this global situation spoken of with the New World Order taking what is not theirs to take, I believe the Lord is relating this passage of scripture to our current world situation. The New World Order of these global elites, bankers, et al, is the man who has taken another man’s wife that is not his to have. The chastisement to the church is that they are proud. And, I believe the Lord is chastising American Christians in the same way. We fly our flag and we sing “God bless America,” and we stand at attention and place our hands over our hearts and we pledge loyalty and devotion to our nation and to its government, and we are proud of our nation and its military because we believe our military is going into these other nations in order to protect us from the terrorists and to protect our freedoms, and God, I believe, is trying to open our eyes to see that the government of the United States of America is not our friend and that our own soldiers are being used as pawns in order to kill, destroy and to conquer other nations for the New World Order, and that our nation and its allies are the true terrorists world-wide who are the rulers (the Carnegies) who have declared check and checkmate on the world, and yet we are still proud and think we are so blessed to live in such a “godly” nation. Oh, what an atrocity that we should be so blind to not see what is truly going on.

    I believe with all my heart that God is speaking these same words found in I Corinthians 5 to the church and people of America that the kind of immoral acts that are going on by our government, our military and our allies world-wide is of a kind that does not occur among the pagans, and yet we are proud of our nation. And, God is saying that we should instead be filled with grief and we should put out of our churches the US government who is raping the people of the world and is destroying their land and confiscating their resources and is killing their innocents in order to conquer their nations, including our own people and nation.

    The part about the yeast working through the whole batch of dough has already taken place in the institutional church in America with the sweeping movement of a new order within the church nationwide in which the majority of evangelical denominations have yielded to follow a set of doctrines and practices of man that are paralleled to the same techniques used to build big business instead of allowing the Holy Spirit of God to build his church through lives transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit at work within their hearts and lives in salvation. And, it has already taken place in our nation with all of the loyalty and devotion to our nation taught us from the time we began school, and is continually promoted and nurtured via the church. Churches under 501c3 are under certain US government restrictions with regard to what can and cannot be said from the pulpit with regard to people serving in public office or running for office. So, the church remains silent while the New World Order of government and religion comes into town and takes over our nation and other nations and yet we are proud.

    I believe with all my heart that God is warning his church here in America to wake up spiritually and to listen to him and to inquire of him concerning what is going on in our nation within our government and our military and to call upon God for revival in this nation of ours and for us to stop putting our faith and trust in mankind and to stop allowing the sins of our government to go unchecked to where the yeast works its way through the whole batch of dough and the church becomes completely useless for God’s kingdom work. So, I appeal to you as a fellow citizen of this great nation and as a fellow believer in Jesus Christ to do the homework and research what is really going on, but most of all to pray and to ask God to reveal to you the deception that is being fed to us via the media on a daily basis, so that we don’t buy into the lies and deception but that we seek truth and that we repent of our sins, we turn to God/Jesus in faith, and then we follow the Lord Jesus in walking in the Spirit of God, in his truth and in his ways, because the days are evil and the Day when God judges our nation, I believe, is fast approaching.

    Where exactly is this New World Order mentioned in the Bible? I always have issues finding it.

    The day of judgment has been fast approaching since the ascension.

    Vigilance is not a new concept.

    It is in the book of Revelation. It is called "The Beast" which is given permission by God to rule and to conquer the kingdoms and peoples of the earth for a time, times and half a time. It is a government that controls the entire world and forces the people of the world to submit to its authority. This is happening right now and the government of the USA is part of this global order that is forcing its rule on the nations of the world. I just ask everyone to prayerfully go before God and to ask him to show us any deceptions of Satan we are buying into in the church and in our government; to open our eyes to see our world and church through God's eyes and then to respond to what he shows us, his children, as He would have us to respond.

    You are assuming it's a government. Revelations is not literal. It's easy to assume things that aren't there.

    Government - a group of people who have the power to make and enforce laws for a country or area; govern - rule; head; reign; control; dominate (Encarta & MS Word).

    Revelation 13:1-9:

    Daniel 7:19-27:


    All I ask of anyone is that he or she consider what is going on in our world and in the news prayerfully before Almighty God, asking for understanding and discernment with regard to the times in which we now live, asking God to show us the lies and deceptions we are believing and to show us what is truly happening in our world with regard to these prophecies of scripture.

    So a beast (singular) can also be a group of people (plural)?

    Revelation has one beast in your referenced text. Daniel is more than one. How do you know they are the same?

    I don't need discernment. The world is going to hell. It's been going to hell. I don't need to believe anything other than what is written in the Word of God. What's happening in the world isn't going to change my beliefs. If Jesus comes, he comes. We should be ready at all times.

    What Aibrean says is true, we should be ready at all times, but it is fascinating to watch Bible prophecy unfold, or at least start to unfold, with my own eyes. Its also very encouraging and helps me run the race.

    Yes, we should be ready at all times and part of that being ready is to make certain that we are not deceived and that we don't fall into the trap of the evil one. There is much in scripture that gives us warning against false prophets who come to us as wolves in sheep's clothing and against false christs and deceiving spirits, so we need to hear and to heed those warnings. In the time the Bible was written, the people of God were given specific warnings against specific people or groups of people who would lead God's people astray or who would deceive their minds, as well as there were general warnings. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. The Bible says that the Spirit within us will teach us all things and that we have the mind of Christ within us. The Holy Spirit of God is still speaking to our hearts and making practical and applicable to today God's Word written in the Bible. And, we need to be willing to hear the Spirit's voice speaking inside our hearts prompting and urging us in ways that are applicable to our lives today and world today.

    I'm far more worried about the sin in my own heart than anywhere else.

    I hope you go beyond just being worried about it and that you turn from it and trust the Lord Jesus Christ to deliver you from all sin and that you then walk in faith and obedience to Jesus Christ and that you walk in the Spirit instead of in the flesh.
