    I'm sure most of you by now have heard of the great reset. It's an initiative by the World Economic Forum to completely reshape the world we live in. Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Bill Gates are of course all partners in this initiative. They want to address climate change, diversity, racial justice, social reform and capitalism. Essentially everything the left has been screaming about for years now.

    "the pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future."

    https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2020/06/now-is-the-time-for-a-great-reset/

    Here's a short 1:32 minute video that highlights their vision of the future, including no ownership of anything.



    Last week Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada, admitted that they view this pandemic as an "opportunity" for a reset to "address the inequities in our societies". Notice he used the plural form of "society" which indicates a global initiative.



    There's plenty more information online if anyone wants more details on this great reset, but the point of this post is that the great reset is essentially a push for global communism, and I believe the covid 19 pandemic was created to facilitate it. People need to be scared of something in order to submit, give up their liberties and their normal lives. Every nation on earth has a never before used law on the books that states a vaccination can be made mandatory in the event of a public health emergency, and the power to force people to prove they're healthy enough to participate in society, is the power to take away everything they've ever known and completely reshape their lives without consent. This is literally the plan. If they can't convince you to live the way they want, they'll force you.

    "Build Back Better" is not a Joe Biden slogan, it's a great reset slogan and all the world's leaders are using it. And in order to "build back better" they first need to destroy the current system, and that is the purpose of this pandemic. Unfounded accusations of racism, and the fostering of political division and hatred by the main stream media all serve this purpose.

    The second point of this post is to recognize that the description of a scene where a one world government forces all the peoples of the earth to submit, in order to be able to buy or sell, in Revelation 13, is playing itself out before our very eyes.

    This is the first time in history where not only the ability to prevent people from buying and selling exists, but more importantly the opportunity. This pandemic is going to get worse, much worse, and when it does the governments of the world will require you to prove that you're not a danger to society by accepting a "health passport" in exchange for giving up your property rights. This health passport will not be a piece of paper, of course, because you could lose it, so for the sake of convenience it will be implanted under your skin so that no matter where you go you can prove that you're "safe" to travel, to shop, to meet and to generally participate in society.

    If you refuse to accept this health passport, you will be deemed a danger to society and for the safety of all [insert your nationality here] you will be required to isolate. This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints. If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go.

    I propose that the beast of Revelation is indeed communism. I'm not sure what the heads or crowns of this beast specifically represent but communism had seemed to suffer a fatal wound when the Berlin wall fell. The whole world breathed a sigh of relief that the threat of communism was ending, but here we are.

    We only have one empire left to come to complete Nebuchadnezzar's dream, and I do believe this "new world order" everyone is pushing for will be it. It's interesting that so many nations, supposed enemies and opposite in ideologies, are calling for it in unison.

    I'm not convinced, though, that they realize what they're doing. I think they've backed themselves into this corner of fulfilling scripture via the nuclear age they've created. They may be thinking if they can resolve the 3 main causes of war - political, economic, religious - they can avoid an all-out nuclear WWIII.

    I think they honestly believe that this will create a better world, because a far left liberal's ideology includes a justification for forcing their ideology on others. The right side of the spectrum believes in freedom above all else. The left on the other hand, believes in censorship "for the benefit of society", and the further left you go the stronger that desire for control, and the limiting of freedoms, becomes. This great reset is about as far left as you can get.

    Are you saying that the fourth beast of Daniel is not in our past? On what do you base that?

    I'm not a preterist, if that's what you mean (?) but I would acknowledge the iron in the feet/toes (final empire) is the same iron in the legs (Rome)

    I don't mean to label you. It's just that I've been studying the book of Daniel and the first three beasts are obvious, and all the parts about Antiochus Epiphanes just as obvious, but it's unclear if Antiochus Epiphanes is the fourth beast, and so I'm wondering if perhaps the fourth beast of Daniel is also the beast of Revelation.

    No worries - I didn't take it that way. Personally, I view many prophecies of scripture as having near and far fulfillments. I resolve Antiochus Epiphanes as not being the fourth beast of Daniel since Antiochus was before Christs time, and Christ spoke of Daniels abomination of desolation as being yet future (Matthew 24:15).

    I think this is true.

    It's just WORLD COMMUNISM under new names. Don't be deceived. Their PLAN is a "one world government", and it's in prep for 'their' messiah, a fake they will setup as "king of the world". (notice I put those phrases in quotes. They are from their own political treatises, which I will not list here.)

    Davy, do you think this current pandemic will usher in the one world government? Or do you believe it's still further out?

    I think I've always considered the right to embrace individualism and the left to embrace collectivism, but was never able to articulate it with that terminology. I think this terminology is perfect, and it explains what's happening right now in the United States with Trump supporters counting on him to drain the swamp which covers both parties. Trump represents, and supports, individualism (what I call freedom), whereas the establishment represents collectivism. That's why they hate him so much.

    I think you're referring to Revelation 18 verse 23: By your magic spell all the nations were led astray. It uses the word pharmakeia, here translated as "magic spell".

    5331 pharmakeía (from pharmakeuō, "administer drugs") – properly, drug-related sorcery, like the practice of magical-arts, etc. (A. T. Robertson).

    I can see an obvious connection to the current pandemic and pharmakeia but, in the context of what we see in the world today, what do you believe "Babylon" refers to in chapter 18? And how does chapter 18 in general relate to the pandemic, the great reset, or the beast of Revelation?

    The new economy will not prevent people from being rich. It will simply prevent people from ownership. Everything will be for rent, so rich people can rent better things, and more often. Money will still have value and so Bill Gates will still be able to rent a much nicer house than you or I.

    Ok, I can see Mr Gates going for that, but will he still own his business, or take Windows for instance, how can he sell it if he doesnt own it? And if he can't sell, or even rent it, how can he/anyone get rich?

    That kind of makes no sense. It would make more sense if only a few were able to own land while everyone else was forced to rent.
    Either way, from what I can tell from the great reset’s ACTUAL website it just looks more like environmental issues more than anything else. Which I am for protection of the environment and doing more than what we are currently doing.
    There is a lot of IFS even if it is more than an environmental proposal.
    I doubt every nation and even every first world country is going to agree. I highly doubt China would want anything to do with changing what they are currently doing within their country economically besides making more money outside China. Switzerland is never going to join anything and they will never give up the Swiss Franc although they will happily take your money no matter what currency it is.
    I think something dramatic would have to happen for something like that to happen.
    And by dramatic, I mean a global shift in world power aka a world war or government collapse or something similar.

    As far as this setting off a biblical, end times scenario, whether it be that in the OP or not, it is starting to look like what they have been saying for decades willl have to come to pass in order for that to happen.

    No one knows for certian but, its starting to look like the chip in our body as the mark, is likely, as well as someting like global warming, the economy or several things together, are goung to be what sets it off.

    They will also need to hate christians as we are to be hunted down as I recall, tried and killed. Hey, just take a look at the anger on some of these polotical threads, and elswhere on cf, and see it wouldn't take much for some of them to be happy to hunt Christians down.

    Its not that bad yet, but its easy to see it happening soon, maybe in our lifetime

    It's just another peg in the board towards it. Study the Signs Lord Jesus gave in His Olivet discourse. The actual event that will set off the time of "great tribulation" will be the ending of sacrifices in Jerusalem, and the setting up of the "image of the beast" idol ("abomination of desolation") by the coming pseudo-Christ there. It's when he will demand all to bow to it and him as God, or be killed; that will bring the real tribulation upon the saints. World Communism is just a tool of the servants of the devil to bring these prophecies for the end per God's Word. Hold fast! Keep the Faith!

    I'm honestly not sure how this new economy will affect businesses. I don't know the details of how all that will work, but I do know that if we're going to be required to receive a mark of some sort in order to participate in this new economy then that's going to be the most important decision of our lives.

    Qantas airlines is the first of many to require proof of vaccination in order to board one of their flights. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before this becomes government mandated. This virus is a means to an end. Prepare.

    Two things.

    1. The abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel happened when Antiochus Epiphanes attacked, and another abomination was set up in 70 AD when the romans attacked. The Daniel prophecies can be clearly traced to historical events.

    2. I too was certain, up until recently, that a world wide system of "worship" towards the beast would first have to come to pass, but then I realized that word used for "worship" in Revelation really just means reverence, and anyone who accepts the beast as being their authority has already given it reverence. That is the same as worship.
