French President Emmanuel Macron warned that “a race against time is underway,” as he gathered the western world and donated 500 million euros on behalf of France.
Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, said that beating the virus “will take more than making a vaccine available to the very highest bidder. It is going to take more than delivering it only to people in wealthy nations. The pandemic won’t end until people everywhere in the world can be immunized against it.”
French President Emmanuel Macron led the EU Coronavirus Global Response Monday with world leaders, organizations, banks, the United Nations and Melinda Gates by his side. I bet you feel safer already, don’t you?
The global forces are on a roll right now, raising $8 billion dollars in about 2 hours, at the Coronavirus Global Response Summit held in Europe via video chat. As predicted, French president Emmanuel Macron was front and center of the action, moving the assembled nations along down the list of United Nations talking points.
Speaking of gathering the nations, let’s check in with Zephaniah to see what’s coming up in the near future:
Therefore wait for Me, says the Lord, Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is to gather the nations that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour on them My indignation, even all My fierce anger; for all the earth will be devoured with the fire of My jealousy. (Zephaniah 3:8-9)
FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL: World leaders, organizations, and banks on Monday pledged 7.4 billion euros ($8 billion) for research to find a vaccine against the new coronavirus, but warned that it is just the start of an effort that must be sustained over time to beat the disease.
Notably absent from the event were the United States, where more than 67,000 people have died, Russia, and most Muslim nations.
Talking Points included:
WE ARE FACING A GLOBAL HEALTH CRISIS.
THIS IS A MOMENT THAT DEMANDS COORDINATED, DECISIVE & INNOVATIVE ACTION.
THIS IS, ABOVE ALL, A HUMAN CRISIS THAT CALLS FOR SOLIDARITY.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that the money raised is to help find a vaccine, new treatments and better tests for the disease but would only ever amount to a “down payment” on the tools that will be needed to fight the virus.
“IN AN INTERCONNECTED WORLD, NONE OF US IS SAFE UNTIL ALL OF US ARE SAFE”, THE UN SECRETARY-GENERAL INSISTED. “THESE NEW TOOLS CAN HELP US TO FULLY CONTROL THE PANDEMIC, AND MUST BE TREATED AS GLOBAL PUBLIC GOODS AVAILABLE AND AFFORDABLE FOR ALL.
THIS IS THE ONLY PATH TO A WORLD FREE OF COVID-19. WE HAVE A COMMON VISION”, SAID THE UN CHIEF. “LET US NOW PUT PEOPLE FIRST EVERYWHERE.”
“In the space of just a few hours, we have collectively pledged $8 Billion for vaccines, diagnostics, and treatments,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said, wrapping up the event after three hours. “All this money will help kick-start unprecedented global cooperation.”
President Emmanuel Macron warned that “a race against time is underway.” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that “the race to discover the vaccine to defeat this virus is not a competition between countries, but the most urgent shared endeavor of our lifetimes.”
Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation said that beating the virus “will take more than making a vaccine available to the very highest bidder. It is going to take more than delivering it only to people in wealthy nations. The pandemic won’t end until people everywhere can be immunized against it.”
About 100 research groups are pursuing vaccines, with nearly a dozen in early stages of human trials or poised to start. But, so far, there is no way to predict which — if any — vaccine will work safely, or even to name a front-runner.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the US government’s top expert, has cautioned that even if everything goes perfectly, developing a vaccine in 12 to 18 months would set a record for speed.
Concerning Globalism and a One-World Government in the End Times
Be careful what you read these days, globalist and conspiracy theories abound by false teachers and run rampant across social media.
Despite that so much of what’s happening now seems like the perfect storm for a one-world government take-over, that’s not how the Bible explains the end times and the coming empire of Antichrist.
Far from it.
I know it looks promising right now, due to globalists rising to take advantage of the COVID pandemic, but it will never come to fruition. There are plenty of “Western One-World Dreamers” who would like to control the political and financial markets of the world for their own nefarious purposes, but God reveals a different rule will erupt in the last days and Satan’s chosen path won’t be world-wide.
Instead, Satan has chosen a demonic religious leader who rules over Satan’s specially designed religious system that surrounds Israel to get the job done.
While there are roughly 200 nations in the world, Antichrist’s final empire of an Islamic Caliphate will be limited to just 10 nations. Some 25 times we are told Antichrist rules over 10 nations. The prophet Daniel describes the 10 nations still standing until crushed by Jesus at the Second Coming (Daniel 2:42-44).
Did you know the geographic size and location of Antichrist’s empire is described in prophecy? Revelation 13 tells us the empire will be a composite of 3 ancient empires described in Daniel chapter seven (Babylonian, Persian and Grecian Empires). That means Antichrist’s empire won’t expand outside of the Middle East. And Daniel 11:41 shows that Antichrist won’t even control all the nations in the Middle East.
Lastly, Jesus declared there would be wars and rumors of wars during the 7-year Tribulation period (Mt. 24:6). How is that possible with a one-world government? Who would they fight if they control everyone? God repeatably tells us that once the wars begin in the Tribulation, they never end until the Battle of Armageddon (Daniel 9:26; Mt. 24:6; Rev. 6:4; 9:13-21).
This is a major obstacle to the one-world government theory. How can there be wars for 7 years if Antichrist is the leader of the whole world? Who is he fighting?
If Antichrist becomes the one-world leader and rules a one-world government of all people, economies and military’s of the world there would be no government, other than his…. And no one to war against!
A more accurate perspective of the Tribulation period is to view it as not one man ruling the world, but rather, one religion (Islam) trying to take over the world!
