Escape Babylon's Demons
Globalization: Motivation for 911 and Global War On Terror
This article discusses globalization and its relationship to “911” and the global war on terror.
Thomas P.M. Barnett, Ph D Harvard Political Science, was a Senior Strategic Researcher and Professor in the Warfare Analysis & Research Department, Center for Naval Warfare Studies, U.S. Naval War College, Newport, Rhode Island from 1998-2004. Following 9/11/2001 attacks from 10/2001 to 6/2003, he worked as the Assistant for Strategic Futures in the Office of Force Transformation in the Department of Defense.
Barnett offers this definition of globalization at http://www.thomaspmbarnett.com/glossary.htm:
"The worldwide integration and increasing flows of trade, capital, ideas, and people".
Until 9/11, the U.S. Government tended to identify globalization primarily as an economic rule set, but thanks to the global war on terrorism, we now understand that it likewise demands the clear enunciation and enforcement of a security rule set as well.
Patrick M. Wood of the August Review defines globalization and offers this information concerning its origin and purposes on his website, www.augustreview.com. Globalization is the collective effect of purposeful and amoral manipulation that seeks to centralize economic, political, technological and societal forces in order to accrue maximum profit and political power to global banks, global corporations and the elitists who run them. (Note: I believe the manipulation is immoral, not amoral.)
"Free Trade" is globalization's central mantra. Globalization is set against national Sovereignty, closed borders, trade tariffs and anything that would restrict its goals and methods used to achieve them.
Globalization promotes regional and global government, a one-world economic system of trade and a form of fascism where global corporations and their elite control the policies and directives of individual governments.
The original and primary perpetrators of modern-day globalization number only in the 100's, representative of which, but not exclusively, are members of The Trilateral Commission.
To understand the genesis of the Trilateral Commission, read the transcript of the 1979 radio show between Antony C. Sutton, Patrick M. Wood and George S. Franklin, Jr. -- Coordinator of the Trilateral Commission!
Where did Globalization come from?
The "New International Economic Order" was the coinage of the Trilateral Commission starting in 1973. This purpose was stated repeatedly in its papers, journals and conferences. (Note: The roots of Globalization can be traced back a century or more before 1973.)
In 1991, President George H.W. Bush, a member of the Trilateral Commission, began to openly talk about the New World Order, which expanded the concept to include governance as well as economic unity.

David Rothkopf, visiting scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, has directed the Carnegie Economic Strategy Roundtable, served two years as managing director of Kissinger Associates and was deputy undersecretary for international trade policy in the Clinton Administration. In his book, Superclass: The Global Elite and the World They Are Making, this elite insider reveals a global super cluster of links that you can examine at the following link verifying the reality of globalization and its major players.
In basic terms, globalization is the spread of the global economy. The Gap, as defined by military advisors like Thomas P.M. Barnett, is regions of the world that are largely disconnected from the global economy. Barnett said George W. Bush “... set a showdown between the forces of connectedness and disconnectedness in our world.”
Disconnectedness is defined as opposition to the process of globalization; the worldwide integration and increasing flows of trade, capital, ideas, and people.  Disconnectedness is the opposite of functioning within globalization.  Connectivity is the opposite of disconnectedness.
According to Barnett, “disconnectedness is the ultimate enemy” in the global war on terror, and once the United States has “named our enemies, we will invariably wage war, unleashing the death and destruction that come with it.”
Globalization in biblical prophecy
In biblical terms, globalization is the construction process required to establish the fourth kingdom of Daniel; the blasphemous beast kingdom of Revelation 13:1 complete with its global economic system and interoperable global ID mark.
The following modern paraphrased description of the beast kingdom is the result of synthesizing the amplified meanings of the adjectives used to describe the kingdom in Daniel 2:40-44 and Daniel 7:7, Daniel 7:19 and Daniel 7:23.
And the fourth kingdom shall be very powerful militarily. Strong as iron and able to smash the existing infrastructure of any nation to pieces, this formidable, preeminent global military power excites fear in those potentially opposing its will. (Daniel 2:40; Daniel 7:7)
Characterized by a brazen disregard of others and motivated by a ravenous greed for their resources, the beast will slander and accuse differing non-integrated states in order to justify its clawing, preemptive attacks upon them. (Daniel 7:19)
In its military campaigns this beast shocks and awes its prey with the world’s most powerful, state of the art weaponry. After smashing an opponent with a formidable display of world class military strength, the beast then forces a differing, non-integrating state out of its existing socio-economic mold. It accomplishes this by using a divide and conquer strategy designed to fragment the nation into warring factions; trample the existing political structure, and ultimately leave its beastly image stamped or imprinted upon the face of the land of the newly occupied state. (Daniel 2:40; Daniel 2:44; Daniel 7:7; Daniel 7:19; Revelation 13: 14-18)
In spite of this iron clad military hard power, the fourth kingdom remains a divided kingdom. This disunity exists between a mixture of its stronger and weaker client states distributed around the globe. The unity of its states is marked by the integration of each state with the beast into the global economic system. The client states are held together by the support of the beasts policing System Administrator forces and its soft power propaganda programs. (Daniel 2:41-43; Revelation 13:11-18)
This beast’s interoperable global ID mark will be required for every individual participating in its global economy. (Daniel 7:7-28, Revelation 13) This fourth kingdom is also called the little horn and it will led by another beast called the false prophet otherwise known in New Testament scripture as the man of sin; that Wicked; antichrist. (Daniel 7:7, 8, 19-21; 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12; Revelation 16:13; Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:10)
Erasing disconnectedness of individuals and states from the global economy, according to strategic military advisers such as Barnett, is the defining security task of our age.
Barnett bluntly states:
· “the global war on terror is all about connectivity” 
· “the goals of winning the war on terrorism and expanding globalization are two sides of the same coin” 
· The war on terror is “today’s brutal means to a future worth creating: a Middle East that’s reconnected to the world.” 
Barnett also teaches that the global war on terror isn’t primarily a war against nations. This war is about “processing individual terrorists” because everyone needs to play by the Core’s emerging rules”. 
Barnett makes the ongoing blasphemous beast-like mission of the U.S. military very clear in frank words such as:
· “what we in today is primarily warfare against individuals;”
· “think about our likely targets in years to come-individuals all”
· The “hit-list” on the war on terror is composed of those “who’ve declared war on globalization’s creeping advance”.
· The U.S. “offers no truces to the determined forces of disconnectedness, for they have no future in our shared world, our global community. These individuals are slated for extinction…” “This is a new type of war (for us, at least) against a new type of enemy (the Man with No State).
The global war on terror will involve mandatory “marking” of integrating individuals and killing of non-integrating “un-marked” individuals
Thomas Barnett heartlessly admits that when the U.S. “can’t bag them, then we’ll seek to tag them” using technologies to “identify, locate and track “targets of interest””.
Concerning tagging targeted terrorists Barnett suggests that “maybe these tiny transmitters or other tags would be planted on their physical persons (or even in their bodies)” so they can be detected later and tracked by “counterterrorism sensor networks” led by law enforcement agencies inside the Core. 
Thomas Barnett was quoted earlier stating that “until 9/11, the U.S. Government tended to identify globalization primarily as an economic rule set, but thanks to the global war on terrorism, we now understand that it likewise demands the clear enunciation and enforcement of a security rule set as well”.
Barnett defines rule sets as follows:
“A collection of rules (both formal and informal) that delineates how some activity normally unfolds. The Pentagon's New Map explored the new rule sets concerning conflict and violence in international affairs--or under what conditions governments decide it makes sense to switch from the rule set that defines peace to the rule set that defines war. The events of 9/11 shocked the Pentagon and the rest of the world into the realization that we needed a new rule set concerning war and peace, one that replaces the old rule set that governed America's Cold War with the Soviet Union. The book explained how the new rule set will actually work in the years ahead, not just from America's perspective but from an international one.” (http://www.thomaspmbarnett.com/glossary.htm)

Four hard truths about the United States, 911 and the global war on terror
Why should Christians care about truth on 911 and the war on terror?
Many believe that Christians don’t need to care about such socio=political issues. After all, we’re saved from God’s wrath! Our true citizenship is in heaven. Our hope for the future isn’t based in this world; it’s an unchanging, living hope that’s not market driven. Our living hope is a resurrected Savior who’s promised us a better home in heaven with him. Isn’t the only reason God even leaves us here is to be a witness to the lost that Jesus Christ is the only true God and Messiah so that they have an opportunity to be saved from the coming judgment of God? Won’t God sort it all out right in the end?
The answers to these questions is found in relation with two profoundly simple words, love and truth, and the two greatest commandments that Jesus taught that are found in Mark 12:28-31.
And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
This webpage is dedicated to teaching the truth concerning 911 and the war on terror and explaining why that truth matters.
Truth and knowing God
Truth serves a primary purpose in the body of Christ. John 17:11-23 contains the teaching of Jesus saying that it’s through truth that we are sanctified or set apart with him and also united with one another in love in order that the world may believe that he is the only true God and Savior. The implication of this truth is that God’s people can’t be a united, loving, holy witness to the unsaved when we believe the lies of the world system and support evil justified by deceit.
Authentic, personal relationships with God and one another are based upon truth. God is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24) God can’t be known apart from truth for God is truth. (John 14:6) Love is expressed when God is known for God is love. (1 John 4:7-8) Truth must be expressed for God to be known. (Ephesians 4:14-16)
Truth, God and socio-political issues
Does the fact that 911 and the war on terror are socio-political issues mean that the church can ignore the truth about them? Does knowing God depend only upon believing correct theological truth? To what degree, if any, does our relationship to God depend upon believing the truth on socio-political issues?
To answer those questions, consider for a moment the moral lessons buried within the prophecy concerning Babylon the Great contained in Revelation 17-18. This great, mysteriously disguised nation is an arrogant commercial whore who’s spreading her gross immorality around the globe. Why does the Lord warn the church located within “Babylon the Great” to come out of her… to escape from her… to forsake her… to depart from her?
“Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” (Revelation 18:4)
Why is God concerned about the effect of issues upon his people if those issues are socio-economic and not religious issues? Doesn’t God separate church and state into two separate categories when he judges? Isn’t God only concerned with religious issues that affect the operation of the church?
Absolutely not! The genuineness of our professed faith is proven by our worldview and our actions in our world. (James 1:27; 1 John 2:15-17) If we love God, we won’t love the evil world system. We will have a desire to battle against the rulers of the dark forces and spiritual wickedness in high places through prayer and speaking God’s truth in order to protect ourselves and others from its contaminating influence. (James 4:4; 2 Peter 1:4; Titus 2:12; 2 Timothy 4:10; Ephesians 6:12)
God warns his people living in “Babylon” to forsake her so that that they aren’t partakers or co-participants in her sins. (Revelation 18:4) If God’s people support her public policies, either actively or as silent accomplices, they also share responsibility with her for the evil fruit of those policies. Revelation 17-18 tells us that Babylon the Great has acted proudly, selfishly, greedily, covetously, violently, unrighteous, and hatedly. It explains that this demonically empowered whore is eventually destroyed one day for her sin against God and hatred toward his true church.
The judgment of God upon the socio-political evils of violence and the deceitful use of oppressive force for the sake of unjust gain is seen throughout history beginning with the world of Noah. God’s judgment continued throughout the generations of prophets and apostles were who sent to warn the nations against the socio-political evils of developing deceitful plans which justified use of oppressive force and violent bloodshed for the purpose of unjust gain. (Genesis 6:5-13; Isaiah 59; Jeremiah 6, 22-23, 50-51; Ezekiel 7-8, 12, 18, 28:1-19, 45:8-10; Joel 3:19; Amos 3, 5-6, 8; Obadiah 1:10-16; Jonah 3:8; Micah 2-4; Nahum 3; Habakkuk 1-3; Zephaniah 1:9, 3; Zechariah 7:4-14; Malachi 2:17-3:5; Matthew 23:14-39; Luke 3:14; Romans 3:9-20; Hebrews 11:32-34)
Please understand that whether or not you believe America is “Babylon the Great” (Babylon the Great page link) is irrelevant to the point being made here. That point is that if we’ve placed our faith in the official conspiracy theory of the U.S. Federal Government by standing with them as partakers in the war on terror, we also share moral responsibility with them to date for the moral fruit resulting from the war. Among a few things this war has achieved include the following:
· $175 trillion plus spent
· 1,300,000 plus lives sacrificed (includes many “innocent civilians” and “collateral damage’)
· untold number of prisoners tortured
· removal of legal restraints against torture
· $180 billion plus spent on the Department of Homeland Security supporting the abolishment of U.S. Constitutional Rights and civil liberties that prior generations of Americans have sacrificed for
Truth and moral accountability
Yes, if we stand with the U.S. Federal Governement in support of the war on terror, we share responsibility with it for its moral fruit which includes the above items. How much responsibility we share before God for this fruit will be based upon how much truth God has wanted to teach us concerning the public policies and motivation of the United States regarding the war. (Luke 12:35-48) Before we pledge allegiance to the current illegal, un-Constitutional form of the United States of America and stand with the White House in the global war on terror, we need to consider that our true moral character is seen in the kind of fruit our lives produce; not by what we say we believe in. (Matthew 7:15-29; James 1:19-2:26)
Chuck Baldwin, Baptist Pastor and 2008 Constitution Party nominee for President of the United States reminds us that the Constitution is the highest law of our land and it is our responsibility under God to uphold that law according to Romans 13.
“It is up to the American people to enforce constitutional government. From a Christian perspective, it is "We the people" who are the "powers that be" in Romans chapter 13. Under our form of government, the source of authority and the source of legitimacy reside with "We the people." We are not the slaves of any king or despot. Our elected leaders are public servants, not private masters. In a nutshell, they work for us. They are contracted to preserve our liberties and our way of life. When they fail, they must answer to us.”
Public policy approved by God produces good fruit; not mixed fruit or bad fruit, but good fruit. Jesus, in his brilliant simplicity, taught us that good trees can’t produce bad fruit, but bad trees can. In other words, good people are responsible for producing good things in this world, not evil things. (Matthew 7:18; James 3:13-4:10)
There’s no question that our heavenly Father knows the secret details behind 911 and the war on terror and the moral value of everything sacrificed for it. As Christians, we’re commanded to abstain from all appearance of evil. (1 Thessalonians 5:22) This truth needs to be obeyed the next time we are tempted to choose the “lesser of two evils” or excuse evil because “the end justifies the means”. Every human life is important to our Lord including those we inhumanely toss into the “collateral damage” category. If we are incapable of thinking about these issues, we are no better than the German "desk murderers" of the 1940's who were unable to think about and react to the organization and transport of Jews to WW2 death camps because of their extraordinary self absorbed shallowness.
Silence of socio-political truth
Where has the voice of the biblical church been concerning questions surrounding what really happened on 911 and the legitimacy of the war on terror? Why is there virtually no voice from the professing biblical church protesting the occupation of Iraq and the Iran war rumors? The answer is that the prophetic voice of the true church has been muzzled by the Federal Government. Let me briefly explain how.
501-c3 shepherds (see link on 501-c3 page) and their flocks can’t rightfully partake of tax benefits if their church advocates specific political candidates for office or fails to support public policy. 501-c3 churches have pledged their allegiance to all the state does and says. If they break that pledge or vow, they breach the agreement with the world allowing them to deduct financial contributions from their taxes and provide their Pastors special benefits. This agreement between a corrupt secular state and a holy church isn’t in agreement with the truth of scripture. It’s clearly idolatry placing state authority over Christ as functional head of the church. The church of Jesus Christ is commanded to be separate. She’s warned not partake of the sins of the secular state. Instead of heeding this warning, the church is in bed with the world so deeply that you can even hear a brainwashed fundamental bible pastor proudly boast of “grabbin’ their gun” in order to kill Iraqis.
Isn’t it blasphemous that we have fallen so far away from the truth that we heartlessly boast about killing people?! It seems we are in the process of forgetting the meaning of truth or apostasizing. Is this a sign that the man of sin is ready to be revealed? (2 Thessalonians 2:2)
Truth or apostasy from truth?
According to Noah Webster (1828), truth is:
· conformity to fact or reality
· exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be
· true state of facts or things
· purity from falsehood
· correct opinion
· to do truth is to practice what God commands
Regarding the relationship between love and truth, Isaiah Chapter 1 records the prophecy of Isaiah concerned with a once trusted nation that became God’s enemy. Like the church at Ephesus described in Revelation 2, this nation lost its humanitarian love for people. This nation is described by God and announced by his prophet as a fornicating, faithless harlot led by selfish, stubborn, corrupt leaders who have been bought off by thieves. (Isaiah 1:4-6, 21-23) The entire leadership of this nation is said to be sick. (Isaiah 1:5-6) The country has been devastated and become a police state; a guarded, watched nation besieged by foreign troops. (Isaiah 1:7-8) The self-righteous prayers of this hypocritical nation are ignored by a holy God who’s alienated by its evil plans and the unjust way its oppressive violence breaks others in pieces with no regard for the least fortunate and their families. (Isaiah 1:15-17) God questions the value of their sacrifices in light of their evil bloodshed and counsels them to learn to do well. In other words, God asks them to study in order to please him by doing things that are right and good according to his ways. (Isaiah 1:17-18) In order for the leaders of this nation and its people to reverse their moral fall, they would have to listen to God’s voice of reason and accept the truth about the way they were treating others. The same is true of America today. We’re a nation proclaimed by some national leaders to be a good; even a Christian nation. We must study to learn the truth about how our aggressive militarism is alienating us from God and others. Its urgent that we repent as a nation before we are besieged by foreign troops and live under a tyrannical reign of oppressive violence in return for the oppressive violence we have sown.
Choosing to suffer for truth
Concerning truth, I was recently talking with a former bible student of mine earlier in 2008 about 911 among other items of significance. Regarding my belief that the U.S. government was involved in the attacks of 911, he asked in a rather odd tone possibly tainted with pride, “Why do you want to believe that?”
I thought that was an interesting question. I quickly deduced that he recognized that my belief was a difficult choice that I might be happier without. I empathetically replied in loving concern that I believed this because I thought it was the truth.
It’s very possible that I was correct in feeling that this young friend of mine had never considered that I really had no choice as a professing follower wanting to please my God and Savior Jesus Christ but to believe the truth about 911.
· Truth is foundational to fellowship with God and his people (John 3:21; John 17:17; 2 Corinthians 6:14; Ephesians 5:11; 1 John 1:6-7)
· Truth is basis of worship (John 4:23-24)
· Truth is basis of freedom (John 8:32-36)
· Truth is basis of spiritual growth (Ephesians 4:11-25; John 15:26; John 16:13)
· Truth is basis of sound testimony and witness to others (John 17)
· Truth is Christ-like (John 1:14; John 1:17; John 14:6)
· Truth is purpose of teaching ministry (Ephesians 4:11-125)
· Truth is a protection against the spirit of error/lies/deception/falling away/fruitless life/Satan (1 John 4:6; 2 Peter 2:18; 2 Peter 3:17)
· Truth is the basis of joy (3 John 1:4; 1 John 1:4-8)
It seemed that he was communicating to me that I could make life easier for myself by simply believing the official story about 911 even though it would mean believing a lie for me because of what I knew to be true. The ludicrous thought of “choosing to believe a lie” brought to mind Paul’s prophecy recorded for us in 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12. This prophecy tells about how people will see amazing events occur when Antichrist arises to power. Because of these startling signs, people will succumb to a mass psychosis or strong delusion leading them to damnation. They will choose to reject the truth about the evil and injustice occurring under Antichrist and will be damned for believing a lie rather than believing the truth about what was really happening in their world. I was very disturbed in light of this truth and 911 as I thought about my young friend’s reaction and the typical mindset of those at this Christians school who persist in believing that George W. Bush is a “good Christian man” and think I must be joking in supporting real Constitutional government. There is a spiritual principle revealed in 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 and its simple truth is:
When we choose to believe a lie rather than the truth about a situation, we alienate the Holy Spirit and allow Satan to control our mind
This truth shouldn’t surprise us; although its practical implications may shake a life to its corrupt core. After all, Jesus taught that no one can serve two masters. He emphasized that the moral darkness of error can’t live in the same body with the moral light of truth. Based upon this truth, as I was talking with this young man, I realized that I was on the grounds of a Christian school which had alienated the Holy Spirit and was operating independently of his control. Like all 501-c3 ministries that have been confronted with the truth of 501-c3 idolatry and the global war on terror and proudly refuse to repent, this school was unknowingly operating under the control of invisible, unholy, demonic powers. This fact is illustrated by an experience I suffered while teaching at the school two years earlier. I only resurrect this memory for illustration purposes as it reveals how swallowed lies divide the body of Christ and give Satan, the lying father of lies, a power base within the church.
Bob Jones University students had led the weekly chapel service the day that a school Administrator unexpectedly summoned me to his office. It was there that he privately questioned me about a “report” he had received that I was praying and reading my bible with my head down rather than actively showing my support for the chapel service by listening with my head up. The play was a patriotic show of support for the U.S. led “war on terror” in Iraq. It was punctuated with pre-recorded loud gunfire explosions for sound effect. I told him that the play was offensive to me because I didn’t believe in the war. I explained that I chose to quietly read and pray rather than make a confusing scene by walking out of the service because I couldn’t in good conscience support the play’s message. This was a battle over truth and based upon my personal study of events leading up to the war on Iraq, I was convinced that I couldn’t support the war in truth. I would have been lying if I’d shown visible support for the chapel message. He closed his meeting by informing me that this behavior would be noted in my personnel file. The fact that this professing brother in Christ told me this reveals the control that Satan has exercised over minds at the school for believing a lie rather than the truth. It’s very telling that he wasn’t interested in knowing why I didn’t believe in the war. He was interested in falsely labeling me a pacifist and making sure he marked me as an enemy of the lie that he and other school “authorities” believed was the truth.
It’s worth noting that the truth concerning socio-political issues has recently generated a highly visible and extremely divisive reaction from a high-profile professing Christian against another professing Christian. The truth concerning 911 brought forth murderous threats from radio personality Michael Reagan. Reagan, the adopted son of the ex-President, has publicly called for the cold blooded murder of 911 truth activist and professing Christian author Mark Dice (http://www.theresistancemanifesto.com/). Reagan’s threats not only were directed at Dice. In addition, he threatened all those that don’t trust the official government conspiracy story concerning 911 labeled “911 truthers” and 2008 Republican Presidential candidate and Texas Congressman Dr. Ron Paul supporters.

Truth about the United States
It’s my hope and prayer that the informative links at this page will enlighten the eyes of the hearts of my true brothers and sisters in Christ so that together we might approve the things that are true, excellent and grow together in him as together we stand, not only for the truth concerning salvation through faith in Jesus Christ alone; but also in the need to renounce support of the antichristian agenda of the new world order in obedience to a proper contextual understanding of Romans 13, for the glory of God and the moral purity of his church.
