Call for a World Government
On January 23, 2010 a prominent News Paper in India carried a full page advertisement, calling upon the government of India to establish a world government for global justice, unity and peace. The advertiser is a renowned educationalist based in UP.
He demands three things:-
(1) Establish a world court with enforceable world laws for peace & unity.
(2) Establish a world government for global governance.
(3) Call urgently a meeting of the world leaders at New Delhi to form a world parliament.
According to the advertiser, India ‘being the biggest and most mature democracy of the world to safeguard the future of the world’ is the only country in the world to bring about ‘one world order’. He sites the example of ‘European Parliament of 27 countries’ and ‘European currency “Euro’ of 16 countries’.
A desire for a united world is not new. It’s not a bad idea either!
But is it possible? Can such a world body work efficiently? How the UN has been successful? Many questions remain.
However, the Bible says it very clearly that towards the end of this age, the world must come under one ruler.
The inspired writers of the word of God predicted years ago that such a world system will be in place before the Son of God, the Messiah will come to rule this world in righteousness. Cf. Daniel ch. 7; Revelation ch. 13; Isaiah 2:1—4, ch. 11 etc.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the only one qualified to rule the world in peace and harmony.
Effort by man for world peace and unity, without yielding to The Creator and His demands can never be successful.
