I am by no means qualified to speak from a political perspective as I only study and perceive things from a theological and philosophical spectrum. And yet, what is occurring at this very moment is catastrophic on so many levels with joblessness abounding, the market collapsing, and the very infrastructure of the fabric of social order itself deteriorating.
With that being said, I do not agree with a quote from one of CNN’s articles speaking about Jared Kushner that states, “If ever there were a time for big government, for ambitious programs, for a central role for federal authorities, it is right now.” From a theological perspective I can see this necessity and desire for bigger governing correlating with that of the UN Agenda 21 which only results in the formation of a true one world government and the implementation of a global socialistic infrastructure.
It only takes a little study within the context of Revelations chapter 13 to come to understand the implications of what such a scenario entails. The rise of the Beast (one world system) out of the sea (symbolic representation of chaos itself), along with the rise of a new world leader (the antichrist and superman everyone outside the church is seeking to save the day) that brings about the mark of the beast (the cashless, digital currency that the UN and socialist patriots are pushing for), that results in the death of millions of Christians.
Now, analyzing such a desired “utopian” world system from a philosophical perspective, brings with it the same fears as much of what socialist seek stems from the philosophy of Carls Marxs. This philosophy is rooted only in revenge and retaliation of those who are rich, and is the philosophy in which the Soviet Russian led by Stalin killed millions of his own people. Moreover, this is the same philosophy that was embedded in Maos China in which millions of people, some counts of which say up to 100 million, died at the hands of the bigger, totalitarian government. This is not including the failed socialist governments of Venezuela and others.
On a final note, this is not the time for a bigger government, but rather it is time for bigger faith in God; that is Jesus Christ Himself. If we want to heal the nations and restore the economy, then we must turn to the Lord with a repentant heart and cry out for His mercy to be poured out upon the world. No philosophy, no political agenda, no bigger government can heal the broken hearts and the fallen state of the world except it be Christ Himself. Let us cry out to the true Savior of the world and watch the Spirit of God heal the nations and lift us up.
“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
II Chronicles 7:14 NKJV
