A Case for a Realpolitik Biblical World Order.
In the 2014, work by Henry Kissinger, “World Order”, page 375, he shared that the book
originated from a dinner conversation with Charles Hill, Distinguished Fellow of the BradyJohnson Program in Grand Strategy.
“At that dinner, we concluded that the crisis in the concept of world order was the ultimate international problem of our day.”
Many nations today have multiple Visions of the Future, and are investing grand amounts of time, effort and funds in order to create and sustain these potential historical legacies.
China’s Red (Neo-Communist) “Silk Belt and Road” Eurasian Economic Vision is in the WSJ, (Wall Street Journal) print comments on an almost daily theme.
Quietly, the USA is formulating the “Blue Dot Network Vision” as an alternative Democratic “clean less-corrupted and quality driven” Eurasian financial option.
The Muslim world continues to fight each other for dominance of its Caliphate Vision,
some hoping to create floating forts of “Rich Island Ships in the Sea or MBS Wealth
The Climate Change Vision has cast a “no hope” death knell over a world wondering how it will immigrate fast enough to the survivable food climate areas, and avoid the next round of global pandemic.
Silicon Valley has cast its Tech Vision in an “elitist escapist” venture to outer Space. The
Earth, “love it or leave it” grants the rich the option to leave, and the poor to languish
without much of their help or funds.
Many other Visions of World Survival Order have been proposed and governments are
attempting to meet in between the new Covid outbreaks to discuss them.
Yet the foundation of any Realpolitik is based on facing the real problems, creating Action Plans, and working together toward a World seeking to bring Healthy Order out of Chaos.
The theme of this paper is to investigate if a God does exist, and that God has created this world, that perhaps He has a specific recommendation of the best possible World Order? Read Jeremiah 29:11 and one can see that God does speak specifically about “a Hope and a Future.” 1
Dr. Antony Flew, “There is A (cross out No) God” How the world’s most notorious atheist changed his mind. c. 2007. Also a very good case for scientifically sound, and historical Christianity is stated in the book.
The Healing of the Nations? Revelation 22.2
As humanity faces the 21st Century and an overwhelmingly, and increasingly complex
series of overlapping and multiplying problems, it is a united world consensus that our
Order is becoming increasingly damaged and frayed on many international fronts.
When nations are faced with a few major challenges, often they find a way to cope, yet
when they become multiplying layers of increasing problems rising faster than the
solutions, a breaking point is reached and Order descends into new degrees of Chaos.
Therefore, the past discussions of “Balance” are now facing new historical challenges.
The World is a very Organic, Living, Rational System and can become broken or sick,
therefore the question is how to create a condition of Global National Resilience and
Solutions for Healing?
Dr Henry Kissinger outlines in his book on page 372, a series of specific questions nation leaders need to be asking each other.
What do we seek to prevent?
What do we seek to achieve?
What are the timelines?
Is this accomplished with others or even alone?
What do we seek to prevent or achieve only if supported by an alliance?
Or by one’s self?
What should we not engage in even if urged by an alliance?
What common values do we seek to advance?
What is considered an “un-healthy” or “healthy” value?
Who determines this?
The premise of this paper is based on the argument that there is a True God, (as opposed to false ones) and that the True God is rational and knowable. Therefore, as the Creator God a specific World Order is a clear part of rationality and know ability.
The very last Book and Chapter of the Bible speaks of “the Tree of Life” (Rev.22.2) and that the “leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations (plural)”.
World Order Vision Defined By Values
In the midst of the Global challenges the 21st Century faces, “He who overcomes shall
inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son” (adopted into a Global
family). Rev. 21:7.
“But the cowardly (fearful of change), unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually
immoral, sorcerers (drug oppressing), idolaters (setting greater value on other things as
higher than God), and all liars (real truth has value) shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (Rev.21:8).
Ethical Values will accelerate a sharp definition between the borders of humanity in this
united, trans-national healing of the 21st Century and the parameters of the global struggle, not as political nor nationalistic borders of geographic culture.
A New Nation Multi-Cultural Ethic will be created according to the Bible based on united
Values, and others will be created based on its rejection of these Biblical Values.
In London UK, when I share in discussion with many Muslim friends from every Islamic
background, we often look together at the writings of Isaiah in the Old Testament (Tawrat) or Torah, which has strong accurate support from the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
This was prophecy written 400 years before about the virgin born, Jesus (Isa al Masih).
“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the Government will be upon His shoulder, and His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, Prince of Peace, of the increase of His Government and peace, there shall be NO END, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to ORDER IT and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward even FOREVER, the zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform
this.” (Isaiah 9:6-7).
It is very clear in this prophecy, that the Kingdom of God which authority was given by God to this special virgin born, Jesus (Word of God in flesh) Kalimatu’alah in Arabic, is never replaced nor abrogated by any other system, and is to have NO END, and last forever.
“In Galilee of the Gentiles (nations), the people who walked in darkness, have seen a Great LIGHT, those who dwelt in the shadow of death, upon them a LIGHT has shined…”
Jesus’ purpose was not to the nation of Israel alone, but by his own declaration was for all mankind forever. The Great Co-Mission” says, “”All authority has been given unto me in heaven and on earth, GO, therefore, and make disciples of ALL THE NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you and lo, I AM with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. (Matthew 28: 18-20).
I hope this short work grants some clarity for the leaders in the 21st Century!
