Bible Question and Answer
Question: Hi.. I know I ask a lot of questions and I’m sorry! Well I want know if you believe there is a “NEW WORLD ORDER” in the works? I’m not sure if that’s something I can ask but I’m giving it a shot.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Karen thank you for the question and there is no reason to apologize. Welcome, that is what this section of our site is for.
There is absolutely a New World Order government in the works. Globalism has engulfed the entire world where the borders of the nations are slowly being erased. Look at the global financial system, it binds most of the world together and this is how global trade is conducted. You will notice the nations that are being attacked are not a part of the current global financial system. That is no accident. The children of Satan would like to have absolute power over the entire world and they are working to accomplish just that. Nations like Iraq and Afghanistan were not a part of the global financial system until they were attacked and once they were conquered then they joined the globalist system. It was never about “terrorism,” that was only the excuse that was used to get the peoples of the world in agreement to go along with the war that ensued.
Look at our nation, our southern border is null and void. As we have pointed out, our government continues to leave programs in place that provide illegal immigrants with free tax payer dollars. In fact, 62% of illegal immigrants receive free government aid. We all know nothing is free in this world, so that means you and I foot that bill. This too is a part of globalism, the children of Satan who control this nation allow this so they can erode the foundations of our nation and they have done a good job at that unfortunately.
I could go on and on, but I would like you to watch a video we did about ISIS and how the leaders of the world are working together to fight terrorism which they have called the “common enemy of mankind”. We have written about globalism many times and documented how it is playing out in accordance with scripture in our multi-chapter Bible study titled, “The Timeline of the Tribulation”. I strongly encourage you to watch and read both of these studies I have pointed out and linked to.
Question: I grew up being told by my parents that if a person commits suicide they will go to hell because we destroy what God created and because you have died you cannot ask for forgiveness. I cannot find any subject in the bible where it says you will go to hell if you kill yourself, only that there were suicides. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Donna, thank you for the question. In Exodus 20:13 our Father told us, “Thou shalt not kill”. Yet, we know our Father Himself told the Israelite’s many times to kill in order to preserve the people. Understanding our Father’s Word has no contradictions that means we need to examine this word “kill” which is Strong’s word 7253 and it means, “kill, especially to murder”. To “murder” is to “unlawfully kill with premeditation”. When one commits murder it is not in self defense or to preserve your family, rather the individual considers the thought, plans it out and then executes it showing no regard for human life or even what our Father thinks about it.
If someone takes their own life, that is murdering yourself and is certainly a sin. Will they go to “hell” which simply means, “the grave”? Only our Father can answer that question.
We should be careful to note that anyone who commits suicide is not in a stable state of mind. Other conditions like drugs or alcohol may also factor in so that decision would not be made with a clear mind.
Donna we can also trust in our Father, trust and know with certainty that He will make the correct Judgement (Psalm 25:8-10, Deuteronomy 32:4, Proverbs 16:11).
Question: Hi Brandon — I read this article a while ago, and had saved it to my computer for reference (omitted). I am aware that neither Satan or his locust army can harm a hair on our head, but what about the period of time before Antichrist arrives? (Like if/when martial law is declared?) This article is disturbing. What are your thoughts? Thanks so much!
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Kathryn. We have omitted the link to the article in question as it was designed to spread fear and hype. For our readers, the article claimed due to a law that was passed in 1991, “H.J. Res. 104” that be-headings would take place in the United States. The bill that was signed into law reads in part,
“To designate March 26, 1991, as `Education Day, U.S.A.’. Whereas Congress recognizes the historical tradition of ethical values and principles which are the basis of civilized society and upon which our great Nation was founded;
Whereas these ethical values and principles have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization, when they were known as the Seven Noahide Laws;
Whereas without these ethical values and principles the edifice of civilization stands in serious peril of returning to chaos;
Whereas society is profoundly concerned with the recent weakening of these principles that has resulted in crises that beleaguer and threaten the fabric of civilized society;”
All this bill did was establish that the tradition of the “Seven Noahide Laws” be recognized by Congress. I do not know about you, but I have never seen or head of any national day set aside for this as it appears this was never ingrained into our nation.
The sad, but not surprising part for me is our elected president at the time signed such a law. There is no such thing as the “Seven Noahide Laws” written in the Bible. This is judaism which came about from Babylon and Babylon brings about much confusion.
Kathryn, to answer your question, I do not believe the government will chop off the heads of Christians. There is no law or reason for it. There are far more things we should all be concerned about and I do understand your concern. The author of that article was spreading much fear and I am sure he had something to sell as well, they always do. I appreciate you asking the question, but we all tend to get unnerved by things of this magnitude. We all tend to look ahead for some great calamity when there is a calamity hitting us each and every day. If you asked people 30-50 years ago if they would have allowed the government to break the law and search their person for no reason they would have said you were crazy for asking. If you told those same people the government would not only break the law of the land, but also molest your children while doing so that would have been unthinkable.
Today Kathryn, we live in a society of the unthinkable, where the FBI uses commercial retailers to spy on our computers, they also capture every digital piece of information we submit or create. We also see the government in full support of homosexual marriage which also would have been unthinkable many years ago. It is events like these that should be causing alarm, a wake up call to the people. But the people seem to be asleep or do not care.
Today, Christians die all of the time around the world due to other individuals and government itself. Christians will continue to die around the world until the return of Christ. As you already pointed out, Satan and his angels cannot harm one hair on the head of our Father’s Saints, the 144,000 that are Sealed. Satan comes in peace, Satan appears on earth claiming to be God who has come to save the world. The last thing he will be doing is hurting people, but that does not mean regular people will not. We have religious nuts that kill themselves all the time in the name of religion. Imagine what some may want to do to you when you reject Satan, the perceived Messiah? This is one of the reasons we will want to be very alert and aware of our surroundings during the Tribulation and even today.
We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience. If you would like to ask a question submit it for the next edition of this post and continue the discussion by leaving a comment below.
