The new UN Secretary-General wants a stronger UN

The new UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon told the UN Security Council recently that the UN must strengthen its capacity to deal with the unprecedented threats to peace and security that it faces in 2007.

Ban said that he was taking the reigns of the UN at one of the busiest periods in history citing the crisis in Sudan's Darfur region, the continuing in the Middle East, and the future of Serbia's Kosovo prophets. The new Secretary-General added that terrorism, AIDS, and absence of the rule of law in various parts of the world, and proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) also challenge UN capabilities.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The pronouncement by the incoming UN Secretary-General that the UN must be stronger is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Over fifty years ago the nations of the world came together to form a worldwide political institution, the UN, for the purpose of resolving conflicts, combating world hunger and disease, and in general giving all the nations of the world, no matter their size, a say in world events. There has been a debate as to the effectiveness of the mission of the UN and now the newly appointed Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, wants to make the UN stronger, giving it some real punch. Ban quotes the problems of the world: terrorism, AIDS, Middle East conflict, and regional wars, as the motivation for his call to strengthen the power of the UN. This scenario, a strong worldwide political body to take care of the needs of this world, fits a scenario for the Last Days that can be found in Bible prophecy.

John the Apostle the human author of the book of Revelation, prewrote the history of just such a political body. This one world, economic, political, governmental system would be headquartered in Babylon, which is modern-day Iraq, and it would control the course of this world, manage conflicts, and command commitment to the world leader, who at that time will be the Antichrist, that's found in Revelation 18 and 13:12-18.

The call for a stronger UN does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
