As the COVID pandemic continues to disrupt every continent on the planet, there are ambitious plans being put in place to improve the state of the world. The COVID crisis has created a window of opportunity to change the world for the better. We are told that time is running out and that we cannot miss this opportunity. It seems now is the time for The Great Reset.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) says:
Who would object to wanting a better future for us and our families? The world certainly wasn’t prepared for the pandemic, with so many lives lost and businesses collapsed there has to be unity across nations to ensure better measures in the future. But the WEF is thinking bigger, “…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.”
The Great Reset agenda will affect every way of life across the world. For example, Internet Governance, Global Governance, Blockchain, Global Health, LGBTI Inclusion, Climate Change, Banking & Capital Markets. The diagram at the bottom of this page shows many more and also how everything is connected. These are not insignificant changes but fundamentally affect the core infrastructure across the world. With a global network in place, there will also be a need for global leaders!
Klaus Schwab, WEF’s founder and executive chairman, said, “The covid-19 crisis has shown us that our old systems are not fit anymore for the 21st century.” He promotes the need to reimagine capitalism with many leaders backing his Stakeholder Capitalism proposal. It’s seen as one of the many ways “of achieving a better global economic system.”
As Davos 2021, world leaders pledge a ‘great reset’ after the pandemic. The French President Emmanuel Macron said, “The capitalist model together with this open economy can no longer work in this environment.” Prince Charles says, “It is an opportunity we have never had before and may never have again.”
Even the Pope in his new book ‘God and the World to Come’ says we must use this opportunity, “The world will never be the same again. But it is precisely within this calamity that we must grasp those signs which may prove to be the cornerstones of reconstruction.” Apparently, the path to salvation needs a new model, “We can no longer blithely accept inequalities and disruptions to the environment. The path to humanity’s salvation passes through the creation of a new model of development, which unquestionably focuses on coexistence among peoples in harmony with Creation.”
It appears that faith in Jesus is not required in this ‘new model’ which is odd coming from the Pope, especially given that Scripture anticipates a time where our world will be beyond repair, but it will be the Lord Jesus Christ who brings about reconstruction and salvation, not us.
A cashless society also ties into the new global model and the COVID pandemic has helped drive this forward. Cryptocurrencies like Ethereum and Bitcoin have been around for many years now and have grown in popularity because they are decentralised and regulation-free. Now a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) is being experimented with. This new type of currency will be centralised and regulated to each country but the plan is for it to run on the same blockchain technology as cryptos. CBDCs could be the potential replacement for paper currency leaving government leaders unlimited power to this economic system. Last month the UK created a task force to look at a potential UK CBDC.
The Bible is clear about the systems that will be in place in the end times and the Great Reset agenda seems to align exactly. Revelation 17 describes the one-world religion that will be in place in the end times. This false religion will have universal authority over everyone in every nation. A one-world government will be assembled as described in Revelation 13 eventually having one ruler who receives worship from all the world. This ruler will also control the global monetary system and impose a ‘mark’ that individuals must have in order to buy food and other essentials.
…The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. People worshipped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshipped the beast and asked, ‘Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?’ (Revelation 13:2-4 NIV)
It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666. (Revelation 13:16-18 NIV)
The Great Reset could be the pathway to the end times scenario. The WEF want to see a future where people don’t own anything – “Welcome to the year 2030. Welcome to my city – or should I say, “our city”. I don’t own anything. I don’t own a car. I don’t own a house. I don’t own any appliances or any clothes.” The question is, if the people don’t own anything, who does?
The fear that has been generated by this pandemic will be used to push the agenda for urgent change. No one wants to go through another pandemic and the ‘promise’ of a better future will have the majority of people and nations supporting radical changes. In the near future, we will witness these global systems gaining momentum and popularity as they offer the hope of a better and safer future.
Once the global system is in place things could change rapidly. Many will think the world’s problems have been solved but it will be the exact opposite. The Bible’s descriptions of the end times will happen exactly as stated and we are seeing those changes now with the COVID pandemic being the perfect opportunity to accelerate some of these bigger changes.
Whether The Great Reset will be the fulfilment of the end time prophecies remains to be seen – however, it is clear that the global plans and technology being advanced align closely with Scripture. The Bible is clear on what is coming, the question is are you ready? Is your salvation secure? Trusting in Jesus Christ, our coming King, is the ONLY way to secure your eternal destination.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:1-2 NIV)
