Cold War II

Armageddon – Part 3: Winning Cold War II

5.1 MINS

This is the last of a three-part series inspired by the novel Armageddon by Leon Uris (1963). (Read parts one and two here.) A remarkable, fictional story based on actual history, from the American perspective, of the end of WWII in Germany with a particular focus on the administration of Berlin.

If men could learn from history, what lessons it might teach us!
But passion and party blind our eyes,
and the light which experience gives us
is a lantern on the stern which shines only on the waves behind.
~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772 – 1834)

Is the Cold War II agenda a coordinated and well-planned strategy?

I believe it is. In the late 1940s, as the world began to awake to the first Cold War, it was only natural that some could see the ‘evidence’ before others. Some circumstances awoke one group while other events triggered others. Therefore, I will simply lay out the cards as I have come to see them with regard to the start of Cold War II. I am sure I am not one of the first to see these things, but I have come to realise that the majority of people still have no idea what’s happening.

Come with me, back to the immediate post-war period, just watch what happened as the new threat from the eastern bloc became evident and the first Cold War was born. Following the destruction of WWII, the United Nations was established:

As World War II was about to end in 1945, nations were in ruins, and the world wanted peace. Representatives of 50 countries gathered at the United Nations Conference on International Organization in San Francisco, California from 25 April to 26 June 1945. For the next two months, they proceeded to draft and then sign the UN Charter, which created a new international organization, the United Nations, which, it was hoped, would prevent another world war like the one they had just lived through. (United Nations)

And within the UN, the World Health Organization was born:

In April 1945, during the Conference to set up the United Nations (UN) held in San Francisco, representatives of Brazil and China proposed that an international health organization be established and a conference to frame its constitution convened. On 15 February 1946, the Economic and Social Council of the UN instructed the Secretary-General to convoke such a conference… On the basis of these proposals, the Conference drafted and adopted the Constitution of the World Health Organization, signed 22 July 1946 by representatives of 51 Members of the UN and of 10 other nations. (WHO)

Then with specific attention to the challenges presented by the Cold War, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was founded:

Formed in 1949 with the signing of the Washington Treaty, NATO is a security alliance of 30 countries from North America and Europe. NATO’s fundamental goal is to safeguard the Allies’ freedom and security by political and military means. NATO remains the principal security instrument of the transatlantic community and expression of its common democratic values. (U.S. Mission to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization)

Finally, the World Economic Forum was created by Klaus Schwab:

The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2020 marks the 50th year of the organization, which was founded in 1971 as the European Management Forum. In January that year, the first European Management Symposium was held in Davos, Switzerland. In 1987, the European Management Forum was renamed the World Economic Forum and the European Management Symposium became the Annual Meeting, reflecting the expansion of the Forum’s scope and focus. (Klaus Schwab)

People, organisations, governments and nations with honest motives for the good of mankind were drawn together to form these auspicious four organisations. At their inception, it was clear that each of them was democratic in nature and established on the basis of legitimate representation of the constituent’s wishes.

However, as the years passed, it seems as though these organisations have been infiltrated and now taken over by agendas that are directly taken from the devil’s playbook. Let me highlight a few situations that have triggered me to come to this realisation that there is now a coordinated attack on freedom, democracy, and the Judeo-Christian foundation of the West:

  1. After WWII, the UN was established to coordinate the western nations’ security against the communist threat. Commitments were made at the time by the UN that they would never seek to ‘expand’ their membership eastward into the Soviet Bloc. Arguably, the push to have Ukraine align with the West is a direct contradiction of this commitment and a glaring provocation against Russia. The UN was designed to promote peace, not war.
  2. The WHO has proposed the enactment of pandemic definitions, regulations and procedures that would supersede national governments’ pre-existing procedures and responses. This would give the WHO a global governance role that no nation’s own government could challenge. This is a complete annulment of the tenets and principles of democracy and replaces it with a totalitarian one-world government.
  3. Today, there are many who are questioning the validity of NATO. It has apparently played no significant role in the Ukraine/Russian conflict. It was created for just this purpose, an alliance against communism, but it would appear to be toothless, especially in the context of the UN’s support of this latest armed conflict. Therefore, in light of this, I am ruling NATO out of the equation.
  4. Finally, the WEF is now ideologically driven, with its greatest emphasis and accountability being towards the world’s largest global business. It now seems clear to me that both the left and right of politics in most western nations are now beholden to the Green agenda that is peddled through the WEF. What is more, they no longer have any mechanism to discuss this agenda, they simply ‘have to apply’ it to their constituents, the people, who can no longer see any meaningful distinction between the left and right of politics, and as a result, are rendered powerless.

It seems to me that communism, be that the Russian version, and fascism, be that the Chinese version, is no longer the greatest threat to the Gospel, and to mankind’s ability to prosper and flourish on the earth. (Having said that, I do recognise that 1.4 billion Chinese and 143 million Russians (2021) need our support, desperately; but I don’t see them mounting a full-frontal attack on our Judeo/Christian foundations and practice which I see from the Cold War II). Our greatest threat is the work of the thief who comes only to steal and kill and destroy, and he is doing this by his control of the very global organisations originally designed to uphold, our Judeo/Christian heritage, democracy, peace, freedom, and personal responsibility.

This is a global war, albeit Cold War II, and all the more dangerous as the majority of people in western nations can’t see it yet. So, my final encouragement to us is to keep our eyes and ears open, particularly our spiritual eyes and ears. Also, to keep looking up to Jesus, the true victor:

He defeated the rulers and powers of the spiritual world. With the cross He won the victory over them and led them away, as defeated and powerless prisoners for the whole world to see. ~ Colossians 2:15 (ERV)

Perhaps the topic of another essay, but I am convinced that Jesus does not want us to be silent about the devil and his agenda — that would really play right into his hands!

The Berliners of the late 1940s are a wonderful example to us. Despite their tragedy and pain, they recognised the new threat from within their beloved city. They stood together in defiance and solidarity and with huge gratitude accepted the support of strangers from overseas, no less their former enemies, to defeat the plans of evil arrayed against them through the blockade. They turned their eyes to the sky and witnessed a miracle of deliverance, never seen on the earth, either before or since.

Let us honour the Berliners, and rise up with their spirit, looking to the skies for our deliverance in Jesus Christ, while also taking our stand against the wiles of the devil.

    LEON URIS, one of the lead ing cliche‐mongers of mass­cult, has constructed another of his nonfiction novels. A non­fiction novel is one in which the author takes a major event, mixes actual people with so­called characters, throws in some sex to make his potpourri edible, and winds up with a lecture on Washington or world politics. Since this book costs nearly $7, my first obligation is to warn the potential reader that Mr. Uris’s latest epic is laughable as either fiction or nonfiction.

    This time, his subject is the German Occupation and the Berlin Airlift. “Armageddon” introduces a new element—the author waving Old Glory against the Red hordes. Here

    “My deepest gratitude,” he notes, “is extended to Gen. Lu­cius B. Clay; Father of the Air­lift, Lieut. Gen. William Tun­ner; and to my good and true friend, Brig. Gen. Frank How­ley, who was a Commandant of Berlin in those fearsome days.”

      Peter, thank you for your comment. Yes I know Leon Uris’s work is mostly ‘fiction’ and ‘unpalatable’ fiction at best. But, for me, his book has ‘recalled to mind’ some very challenging days in history, that occurred before I was born. I for one appreciated the sober narrative of the intent of the Soviets and the suffering of the Germans. I for one appreciate the self sacrifice of the Americans in particular when their exploits overseas where undoubtedly honorable.
      But more than this, I see Leon’s work as a salutary warning for the days we are living in today, the birth and execution of Cold War 2.0. Not the ‘war between east and west’ but the cancer ‘within the west’ or should I describe it as a ‘denial of history and self destruction’.

    Very soon now I will go back and re read part one and two Jim. This time round I will take my note pad with me because I want to commit fact to memory and savour each spiritual message.
    I appreciate is body of work so much, I appreciate your assignment in bringing it to us and I am in full agreement with your conclusion’s.
    Thank you again.

      Kaylene, your appreciation is most encouraging. In my duty for full disclosure, a good deal of my ‘thesis’ was born from Andrew Murray’s work but I find it simply ‘maddening’ that the mainstream media can’t call themselves out for not raising a ‘red card’ to the foul play in our own back yard.
      I must also acknowledge Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Prey: Immigration, Islam, and the erosion of women’s rights (2021)

    Yes, it does behove us to learn from history. I wonder if you have read the late David McCullough’s outstanding biography of President Truman. As well as supporting the Berlin Airlift, the Marshall Plan and helping to establish the United Nations, Truman also played a crucial role in the birth of the nation of Israel.

    Jill, I think I may have my next book reading lined up! Thank you. And if you can stomach Leon Uris, you can try Exodus (1958) a novel on the birth of the modern state of Israel.
