Basically, The United Nations Is Engineering a One-World Government
27 August 2014 | by (Aulendorf) – See all my reviews

The linked Organizations planning or causing a world government include the Council on Foreign Relations, the United Nations, the Trilateral commission, the International Monetary Fund, the Fabian Society, the World Bank, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), the World Health Organization, the World Trade Organization, the Club of Rome, the World Council of Churches, the Illuminati and trade unions, Many reports claim that the Illuminati are the main group trying to form a one world government. However other reports also suggest that a Jesuit-Vatican connection has been the major force. These organizations are planning the merging of many faiths into the apostate one world church that will be serving Satan. The New Age movement is also part of the plan. They are controlled by Satan and are linked to the other organizations mentioned that are planning a one world government. They have introduced satanic symbols and systems all around us, and their plan is to cause the world to worship Satan. They control peoples minds in many ways including addiction, drugs, music, entertainment, hypnotism, creating confusion and making the system more complex and difficult than it needs to be. They have undercover agents who often don't know who they are really working for. Their societies are highly secretive. Few people, including the media know or indicate that their members are the richest people in the world. Conservation is good but world heritage is locking up tracts of land under foreign control. The green and environmental groups would be better off encouraging primary producers to protect the land by giving them incentives to do so. Land converted to World Heritage and National Parks is being mismanaged so that it is in a worse state than when it was managed by small landholders. Farmers are being evicted and roads are being closed. The millennium bug caused enormous cost to the small businesses and governments which purchased compliant equipment. These costs have destroyed many firms. The multinationals will get a greater share when smaller firms disappear. Multinationals made great profits from the millennium bug in computer related equipment sales. Some believe that the millennium bug could have been be deliberately rigged to favour more computer related sales. Unnecessary spending on the Y2K bug has increased debts and therefore given the powerful greater control. If the one world government's doctrines or laws were introduced suddenly or obviously, many people would react against their satanic laws or teachings. Often their laws or philosophies are brought in by stealth, such as by backing off and later getting results by another means, or by taking one step back and two steps forward. This is called gradualism. Convincing most of the world that they are correct will all but hand them complete power, and morally destroy society so that it is weak and vulnerable. The answer is to form our own system by forming a group or community where everyone works in a non corrupted environment. People would be so much happier and there would be many less problems. The motive should not be to make money which is a risky gamble. Instead it should be to provide useful goods and services for the community along with volunteering, sharing and God's will. The Biblical system was about sharing and living efficiently where everyone was well off. People could work on what they enjoy. There would be much less stress and forced routines. The good news is that this system could easily be formed today, and we don't need many people. People could still mix with their friends and meet other people not in the group.

There are plenty of exciting things that people could do such as researching truths that have been suppressed. There is so much to read, especially on the Internet. There is probably a much more efficient and beneficial way to do almost everything. This technology does exist, but has been suppressed so that existing monopolies profit enormously, remain unthreatened and maintain control. We need people to put in time to find those who have the technology, which has been suppressed. It is impossible for one person to find the best methods, do God's ministry and run the system effectively. The solution is that we could form a highly efficient group. People could work from their own homes in their own time, which would be more efficient and less stressful. We could communicate with people who have suppressed technologies, which are better than those publicly available. We could benefit from their technologies, and they may even join our group. These people would often be hard done by, clever, hard working, honest people who would be willing to help.

A list of reliable Godly people and businesses could be formed so that the group would be led to the best people and services. Members of the group could communicate from their existing homes. This can be done efficiently via the Internet or phone. However it may be better if some people did move to the one area to enable more direct contact.

More efficient systems would mean people would be better off both health wise and financially. I have read numerous sources claiming anything from cures for cancer to free energy devices have been invented. People within our group could prove these things to the sceptics, which could mean even more members for the group. People could also work to expose corruption and false doctrines so other people can be warned.
