2021: A Prophetic Review
By Hal Lindsey
Fully half of all Americans say 2021 was the worst year of their lives. Do you know what that means? It means that what we are doing as a society is not working. It means the country is on a downward path and that rejecting God causes pain. It means that the encouragement of filth and the glorification of evil are the worst ways to raise a generation of kids. It is a reminder that sin’s final dividend is death.
People are increasingly miserable, and as society continues to push thoughts of God aside, it will get worse. Every day, 2021 brought more news stories pointing to signs of the last days as given in the Bible. But I want to focus on just one — the global movement to make the world ready for Antichrist. Few of the elite movers and shakers know what they are really doing or why. But let’s be clear. Satan has an agenda for our planet and its inhabitants. And those who reject Christ are increasingly vulnerable to his manipulations.
True democracy stands between Antichrist and world power. It must either be destroyed or dramatically changed — “reset.” And that’s where the World Economic Forum (WEF) comes in. In 2020, they began implementing something they called, “The Great Reset.” Their website says that the purpose of the Great Reset is “to build a new social contract.” Think about that phrase. According to the Oxford Dictionary, “social contract” is “a means of explaining the origin of government and the obligations of subjects.”
In creating “a new social contract,” elites want to reset the relationship between governments and the governed. Lately, WEF has been calling it, “The Great Narrative.” But it amounts to the same thing — global power concentrated in a few elites.
For years, conspiracy theorists saw sinister undertones in the World Economic Forum’s activities. But their sessions were hidden behind closed doors, and no one knew for sure what they were up to. That has now changed. In 2021, Klaus Schwab, WEF’s Founder and Executive Chairman openly spoke of a small group of unelected individuals imagining, designing, and even executing the future for billions of people.
At the WEF’s Great Narrative summit in November, Schwab said, “We meet today to develop a great narrative; a story for the future…. We are here now to imagine the future, design the future, and then execute.”
It’s no accident that the summit took place in and under the co-sponsorship of the United Arab Emirates — a “constitutional monarchy.” It was specifically held in the Emirate of Dubai, whose government is considered an “absolute monarchy.” In recent years, global elites have become increasingly distrustful of the rabble — in other words of voters and therefore of democracy. The world’s elites have come to believe that big global decisions should be left to people like themselves — rich, atheistic, proud, and unaccountable.
Global manipulations can be extremely frustrating to see. That’s why we should always remember the scriptural admonition found in Psalms 37:1 (NASB). “Do not fret because of evildoers.” You can drive yourself to distraction looking at and fretting over the deeds of evil men. But in John 14:27 (NASB), Jesus gave this glorious promise. “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”
It’s like recording a football game while you are out, then learning that your team wins in the end. When you get home to watch the game, even the dark moments for your team do not discourage you because you already know how things turn out. We win! Rest in the comfort of those words.
