Current world events seen through the clarifying lens of the LORD's inerrant prophetic word. The Lord's Word proclaims a series of 'latter days' events leading to the second coming of Jesus Christ and the establishment of His Kingdom upon the earth in this generation.

Global SITREP D5-16: The Forces Driving Global Governance
29 September 2016: One of the primary things the Eschatology Today blog has consistently endeavored to accomplish with the Global SITREP format is to be ahead of the curve, and cutting-edge with respect to the Lord's written text on prophetic 'latter days' events. Yesterday morning I learned first-hand just how far ahead of the curve and cutting edge the reporting here has been.
An article written by reporter Brandon Showalter was posted to the 'World' section of the ChristianPost.com website on 28 September 2016. Its headline: Globalism is Anti-Christ, Demonic, Theologians Argue. My initial reaction the the headline was, "What argument? A theological understanding of what Bible prophecy says about current events is no argument; it's prophetic fulfillment." Reading the article slowly and carefully it quickly became clear that Eschatology Today had covered this same ground between May and August of this year: Global SITREP B10-16 (from May through July) and Global SITREP C12-16 (August).
Now we've all been very well versed in this material for a very long time, but the fact that it was published on ChristianPost.com is important, especially for those who are not in the same position of knowledge as we are, or who are more secular and would not ordinarily come to this blog or other bride of Christ-centric websites to read essentially the same thing. The key point made in the article is stated right up front: globalism is in reality a demonic ideology. More than that, globalism is a religion which demonic forces are driving. Use the embedded link above and read the article for yourself.
For those who'd rather not use the link, there is one quote from within the article, actually - it culled from another website article, that must be shared because it is really a center-mass, nail-on-head strike and bears repeating once more here.
Pastor Jim Garlow of Skyline Church in San Diego, CA:
"Globalism is far more than 'geographical' or 'eliminating borders and boundaries.' It is spiritual and demonic at its core. Few - very few - understand this. This is quite likely one of the main reasons why Trump is hated. Do your homework on this one. Think 'principalities and powers'."
Precisely. Exactly. Do your homework on this one people! One of the primary themes throughout the Word of God is this very subject, and as we all affirmatively know at this late hour this is a conflict that is coming to a head, (one with ten horns upon it to be precise) and it will be dealt with by the Sword of His mouth.
In the above quote, Pastor Garlow has, of course, made a direct reference to Ephesians 6:12.
"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places."
And there are at least a half-dozen other verses in the Word of God which instruct us as this verse does. However, and in my opinion, one of the more prominent among them, in consideration of the hour in which we live, is this verse from Isaiah 46:10-11.
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure,’
Calling a bird of prey from the east,
The man who executes My counsel, from a far country.
