Amir Tsarfati, “The Rise of The One-World Religion,” www.BeholdIsrael.org, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG0MUKHbql4&feature=youtu.be
“The Rise of The One-World Religion” (Amir Tsarfati) will deceive many. Many weak-minded believers are already being swept up in the tide of Globalism. And no wonder, for even satan masquerades as an angel of light. It is no great thing therefore if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness” (2 Cor.11:14,15). Let’s have a look at how some of this is currently unfolding.
Much speculation about the One-World-Religion has produced a variety of theories. Some believe the leader will be a Muslim who will be promoting the Islamic faith and agenda for world domination. Others believe it will be headed up by the Pope. Still others think it may be a New-Age Guru, or some variation thereof. Important to understand is that the building blocks are being assembled; the finished product merely awaits its final assembly, through the mandate/endorsement of the soon-to-come leader of the One-World-Government. One thing we do know is that it ushers in, or lays the groundwork for the beginning of the Great Tribulation.
According to Scripture, the antichrist comes into place shortly after the tribulation period is launched: “The beast was given a mouth uttering great boasts and blasphemies. It was given authority to act for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth with blasphemies against God, to slander His name and His tabernacle—that is, those dwelling in heaven. He was also permitted to make war against the kedoshim and overcome them, and he was given authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. All who dwell on the earth shall worship him” (Rev.13:5-8). So although this leader has not yet been identified, the groundwork is being laid for the leader of the “One-World-Religion” to readily slide into place upon the heels of the antichrist’s ordination. It can all happen very quickly when all these pieces are already in place, just awaiting God’s timing to launch the plan.
“We are in the last days and we see the signs everywhere,” Tsarfati explains (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG0MUKHbql4&feature=youtu.be). “In order to get the people to accept one world government, you must get the people to agree to a one-world religion . .” Tsarfati adeptly ties this in with Revelation’s depiction of the “two beasts.” The first beast paves the way for the second beast.
This will be the beast that represents the false religious leader, as in Rev.13:11,12: “Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast before him, and he makes the earth and all those who dwell in it worship the first beast” (Rev.13:11,12). Tsarfati points out that, although many people are of the belief that the antichrist will be a Muslim, this is entirely unrealistic because “not a single Jew would ever receive a Muslim as his Messiah . . .. . so it cannot be a Muslim who will be the antichrist and the one world religion will surely not be Islam.”
2 Thess.2:3,4: “. . . that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” This will take place in the last days. This One World Religious leader is what the Bible refers to as the man of sin.
Major Amir Tsarfati, an Israeli Messianic Jew, a teacher, from the tribe of Judah, explains that state of readiness, how the building blocks have been assembled. Tsarfati outlines “Six Steps of Becoming the One-World-Religion” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG0MUKHbql4&feature=youtu.be), and makes some very poignant points which, for the purpose of this brief overview, cannot all be included here; however, in an attempt to summarize: the Ecumenical movement headed up initially by Pope John Paul II in the late 90’s, culminated in the stamp of approval by UN’s formation in the year 2000, of the “United Religions Initiative of The United Nations.” This false union of 13 different religions (Richard Scheinin, http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1094.cfm ), combining both Christianity and Judaism with everything from Muslims, Buddhists, to Taoism, promotes a glorification of humankind’s idea of unity – i.e. the glorification of self, a replacement of God, rather than putting God at the helm and giving Him the glory. So although it all sounds very nice, well-intended, and humanistic, it is really a manipulative strategy which sets the stage for the great deception: “But even if we (or an angel from heaven) should announce any “good news” to you other than what we have proclaimed to you, let that person be cursed! As we have said before, so I now repeat: if anyone proclaims to you “good news” other than what you received, let that person be under a curse! (Gal.1:8,9).
Yet this deception will ultimately coerce, seduce, and ensnare many, for as Tsarfati points out, the Enemy will use someone, like the Pope, who is seen as a valid religious leader, thereby gaining the trust of the masses, making declarations like those already made by Pope Francis, such as: (a) Through the Ecumenical Movement, declaring in 2013 that “the Lord redeemed everyone” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG0MUKHbql4&feature=youtu.be ) – therefore, pretty much everyone qualifies regardless of belief system. But this is counter to: “whoever did receive Him, those trusting in His name, to these He gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12). The UN gave their stamp of approval, forming the “United Religions Initiative of the United Nations” (b) that “Evolution and Big Bang Theory are real” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG0MUKHbql4&feature=youtu.be ); © in reference to the Charlie Hebdo/Paris incident, “You cannot insult the faith of others” (d) “Catholics should not dismiss gay marriage. . .. ..” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG0MUKHbql4&feature=youtu.be); (e) Pope “calls for Global authority to deal with climate change” – which provides a strategy that goes beyond religion, an effective tool to scare the masses toward the direction of a One-World-Religion, uniting humankind through a common cause/fear. Much progress has been made in this area already. It is advancing rapidly; and it is simply a matter of timing.
These issues are being brought to our attention to prepare, not to fear, for we have been warned in God’s Word from long ago: “Now I urge you, brothers and sisters, to keep your eye on those who are causing divisions and stumbling blocks, contrary to the teaching that you learned. Turn away from them. For such people do not serve our Lord the Messiah, but only their own belly. By their smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting (Rom.16:17,18).
The Lord Jesus/Yeshua Himself, warned: “Be careful that no one leads you astray! . . . . See that you are not alarmed, for this must happen but it is not yet the end. . . . . . they will hand you over to persecution and will kill you. You will be hated . . . . . many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved” (Matt.24:4-12). Will God’s people use wisdom? Will God’s people seek His Word, and heed the warnings that were given long ago? Those who do, have no need to fear.
It’s all about timing – God’s timing – God is sovereign; God has a plan; and ultimately His will will be done, for it has been prophesied by His own Word. Regardless of what must occur in the interim, those who truly believe and follow the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, totally embodied by the Living Christ/Messiah Yeshua, need not fear for anything. What is important, however, is that God’s people walk in a state of readiness; that means intimacy and holiness, that they not be deceived, seduced, and ensnared by the false doctrines of demons and false prophets and teachers of the day.
