The “Deep State”
To mention that there is a conglomerate of bodies and influential people – a state within states- that strives to create a One-World-Government is often scorned by cries of “conspiracy theory!”
Perhaps the most prominent, yet secretive, of these bodies is the Bilderberg Meetings, which started as goal to facilitate dialogue between North-America and Europe.
The covert nature of the Bilderberg Meetings has attracted critics and protesters – some of whom liken the gathering to a so-called “shadow world government”, where rich and powerful people dictate the goings on for the rest of the world.
The New World Order (NWO) is alleged to be an emerging clandestine totalitarian world government and is backed by various conspiracy theories.
One such theorist is American televangelist Pat Roberton, who published a book in 1991 titled “The New World Order” and as such became one of the most prominent Christian broadcasters of recent American history conspiracies.
In his book, Mr Robertson describes a world in which Wall Street, the Federal Reserve System, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group and the Trilateral Commission are in control of events from behind the scenes, and are prodding people constantly and secretively in the direction of a world government for the Antichrist.

However, Labour MP and former party deputy leader Denis Healey was a member of the committee for more than 30 years and was questioned on the group by journalist Jon Ronson for his 2001 book, “ Them: Adventures with Extremists” [a]
Mr Healey said: “To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair.
“Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn’t go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless.
“So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.”
Premillennialism, in Christian eschatology, teaches that the Bible predicts a one-world-government under the rulership of the Antichrist. Those Christians who do not believe in premillenialism must answer why there are so many coincidences between what we see happening around us, and what premilleniasists believe the Bible predicted hundreds of years ago. If a one-world-dictatorship is not predicted events streaming towards this end are the greatest coincidence on earth.
Thus, just a conspiracy theory? The secrecy of the doings of, for example, the Bilderbergers, in itself goes against principles of an honest, democratic society. Little transparency means little accountability. And if the facts that are revealed pan out, there is legitimate room for concern. As they say, where there is smoke there is fire.
The “Deep Church”
The expression “Deep Church” gives a good idea of what is happening in a parallel way at the political and ecclesial level. And if the Deep Church exists, to the anti-premillenialists it is also the biggest coincidence. The strategy in the Church is the same as in politics, just as the goals are the same, and, in the final analysis, the brains and intentions that are behind it. In this sense, the “Deep Church” is for the Church what the “Deep State” is for the State: a foreign body that is illegal, subversive and deprived of any sort of democratic legitimacy that uses the institution in which it is embedded to achieve goals that are diametrically opposed to the goals of the institution itself. In free-world politics, the goal is transparency and democracy. The Deep State’s modus operandi is secrecy and its goal dictatorship. Similarly in the Church- the true Church of Jesus Christ tells us to bear the yoke of Christ, to count the cost and to worship God and none other. The Deep Church preaches human rights- the pregnant woman’s rights, the black person’s rights, gay rights, the earth’s rights (as if it is a “she”- mother Gaia). Rom 1:24-25 predicted “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator…”
An example of a church leader who promotes a “deep Church” agenda is John Podesta, a “Catholic” liberal and Democrat, a former collaborator of Bill and Hillary Clinton, who is tied to John Halpin’s Center For American Progress. [b]. In an email of February 11, 2012, Sandy Newman, American non-profit executive, wrote to Podesta asking him for directions on how to “plant seeds of a revolution” in the Church in matters of contraception, abortion, and gender equality. Podesta responded by confirming that in order to obtain this “springtime of the Church” (note the echo of the idea of the “springtime that proceeds from an ecclesiastical council”) the organizations Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United had been created. These ultra-progressive associations have been financed by George Soros, just as he has financed Jesuit foundations and Bergoglio (the current pope)’s apostolic visit to the United States in 2015.[c] Billionaire George Soros, of course, is a driving proponent of this New World Order vision.
In the Catholic Church we had the Saint Gallen Group, an informal group of high ranking like-minded reformist cleric, who met annually in Switzerland. One of their goals was to oust Benedict XVI (prerunner of the current pope Francis), in concert with Obama and Clinton who saw Joseph Ratzinger (renamed pope Benedict XVI) as an obstacle to the spread of the globalist agenda. [d] Of course the Catholic church is the biggest religious body in the world, and thus need mention, but New World order vision is by no means limited to the Catholics.
The globalist agenda, of course is pro-abortion (women’s rights), pro LGBT (sexual orientation rights), pro-environmentalism (the environment’s rights). Creation.com calls the latter essentially worshipping the creation. [e] It believes that mankind is just another animal on an ancient, billions-of-years-old earth. Contrast this with Genesis 1:28, which is God’s command to humans to take charge over His Creation. This is the balanced view. It recognizes that it belongs to God and we should be good stewards of it. But that it was also given to mankind for our benefit, and we are not subservient to it. And the greatest climate change event ever occurred around 4,500 years ago when God destroyed the earth because of sin. It was His right to do so because it belongs to Him. And that’s where most of the fossil fuels we are burning today came from. So if God destroyed the earth is it our place to try and protect it?
Today, to mention the Catholic church again, Father James Martin, S.J., is the standard bearer of the LGBT ideology. Despite this – indeed, because of this – he was appointed by Bergoglio (renamed pope Francis) as Consultor- advisor to bishops- of the Holy See’s Secretariat for Communications. His work – which is truly “divisive” in the worst sense of the term – serves to strengthen a clandestine group of Catholic leaders of the progressive agenda within the ecclesial body. This was to create an ideological and doctrinal split within the Church and to make people believe that the demands of progressivism, including the so-called homoheresy (the homosexual cabal within the Catholic church) , come from the ground up i.e. it’s the people’s choice. In reality we know full well that the faithful are much less inclined to create such revolutions. It actually comes from the top down. These rebellious actions and chants- of LGBT rights, pro-abortion rights, environmental rights etc. are not necessarily the “will of the people.” It is made to look like it to legitimize choices incompatible with the basic teachings of the Bible. It is a ploy, a devious manoeuvre, that has been used both at the ecclesial level (think of liturgical reforms, which nobody asked for) as well as at the civil level (for example, with gender ideology).
The universal religion desired by the United Nations and Freemasonry, and other globalists, has active collaborators at the highest levels of the Church who usurp authority and adulterate the teaching authority of the Church. They are opposing the true Body of Christ, born-again believers, with the religious body of the Antichrist.
The Rev Thomas Malthus developed his theory of Malthusian Environmentalism – which is driven today. It states that the world’s population tends to increase at a faster rate than its means of subsistence and that unless it is checked by moral restraint or disaster (such as disease, famine, or war) widespread poverty and degradation inevitably result. Malthusian worries are resurgent and people fear the consequences for an overcrowded planet [f] Thus abortion is advocated, since the population gets restrained. Gay rights are advocated, since such sexual relations cannot lead to procreation. The environment is emphasised because the argument is that over-population will exhaust and destroy the earth’s resources, like water and fresh air.
So Environmentalism, Ecumenism (different Christian denominations working together to develop closer relationships among their churches and so to force man-made Christian unity), pan-sexualism (sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity) etc. become the new dogmas of this universal religion, whose ministers are preparing the advent of the Antichrist prior to the final persecution and the definitive victory of the Lord Jesus predicted in the Bible.
Jesus had to go through persecution and death, before He was gloriously resurrected. There is a parallel here: the church too, must go through some persecution and death, before it will share in glory forever. A “tiny remnant” remains, made up of fervent born-again believers, just as John the beloved disciple, Mary the mother of Jesus, and Mary Magdalene remained at the foot of the Cross.
We know that the destiny of the world is not in the hands of men, and that the Lord has promised that He will not abandon His Church: “the gates of hell shall not prevail” (Mt 16:18). The words of Christ are the rock of our hope: “ I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Mt 28:20). If you know Jesus Christ as your Saviour you can hold onto His promises- but if not, you will for sure be swept up by the globalists’ agenda.
