I Am Not A World Citizen

I Am Not A World Citizen

No, I don't fit inside that cookie-cutter that the United Nations, the Canadian government, the media establishment and the educational system have made for all of us free thinkers to adjust to. You mean that all of the propaganda that saturates every corner of our culture has not gotten through to you? No, it hasn't. You mean that all of the wise council of the “Leading Experts” hasn't sunk in? No, actually I don't agree with them. You mean that all of the social engineering that the system has impressed upon your mind has not worked? No, I reject it.

I am not a world citizen. Actually, I would say like the Apostle Paul “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;” (Philippians 3:20 NASB). My citizenship is of heaven. That's where my devotion is. That's where my loyalty is. That's where my identity is.

Jesus' kingdom is a heavenly one. He said to Pilot “...  'My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.'” (John 18:36 ) His kingdom is heavenly and I am following Him there. In the meantime, while I am on earth I choose not to be molded into a world citizen.

I would like to suggest that you avoid becoming a world citizen yourself. Pure globalism when it has evolved into its final form one day, will be the belief that humanity needs to amalgamate into a one-world system that blends their economic, political and religious lives with the rest of the world, into one harmonious thing. The problem is that amalgamation means compromise. You could globalize by compromising your economics to benefit giant multinational companies who may milk you out of house and home and hire you and fire you.You could globalize by compromising your politics to benefit powerful heads of state and their parties who may never ask you for your opinion and may be totally unaccountable to you. You could globalize by compromising your religious beliefs and, in the process, violate your own conscience and offend God. You could globalize or you could say “No way!”

I would rather say, “No way!” Who are these globalists who are leaning into us with expectations to change? They are liberals and they first surfaced in the eighteenth century during the French Revolution. Ever since that time they have been pushing for an overturning of things. They won't be satisfied until they have achieved a state of globalism.

The problem is that the interests of the United Nations, the World Bank, the global federalists, Bill Gates, the Bilderberg bunch, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Rockefellers and Buckingham Palace are not my interests. I am actually quite concerned that they may be in opposition to my interests, my values and my beliefs.

I am not alone in my distrust of globalism. Many people today from every corner of the globe don't want government encroachment into their lives. It has nothing to do with racism. We wish good fortune on those across the ocean from us. However, its about government. We want to be left alone by government and we want to live simple lives that reflect our values.

Is it wrong to push back against globalism? How do you push back against globalism? One big way is at the ballot box. You may be saying, “Please don't get political.” With all due respect, please don't shut this out. If resisting globalism is important to you, then politics is important to you also. Globalism is politics and I am sick of it too, but the way to make it go away is to vote it away.

How do you vote globalism away? Don't both sides of the political spectrum support it? Globalism does have support on either side of the aisle. However, with Liberals globalism is universal. Liberalism has globalism at the very heart of its message. It is the ethos of what liberalism is. Dedication to the United Nations is sacred among liberals.

Conservatives are a mixed bag. There are certainly many conservatives who are globalists. It is undeniable. However,
conservatives who hold to a Tea Party interpretation of political conservatism are not globalists. They are more libertarian than they are liberal (Note that there is a big difference).

Don't cave to all of the pressure to become a world citizen. Follow Jesus Christ on the pathway that He has set for us to get to heaven. Let us say with Him, My kingdom is not of this world.
