In order to properly evaluate the proposed Great Reset in the light of Biblical prophecy, we must first make certain that we understand the world from the vantage point of God Himself.
We must recognize, first, that nothing in this world is out of control. The Lord God of heaven and Earth, at this very moment, “works all things according to the counsel of His will” (Eph. 1:11). Speaking specifically of the Second Person of the Godhead, the Apostle Paul instructs us that “He is before all things, and in Him all things consist” (Col. 1:17). According to the author of Hebrews, He is actually “upholding all things by the word of His power” (Heb. 1:3, NKJV).
Psalm 103:19 states:
The Lord has established His throne in heaven,
And His kingdom rules over all.
As one of my theology professors, Dr. Rolland McCune would say it, this means that “every speck of cosmic dust” in the universe is under His sovereign control. Dr. McCune would remind us that this verse speaks of the universal kingdom of God—of which the coming theocratic, millennial kingdom of prophecy will be one major element.
In our first three installments on the Great Reset—proposed for the world by the global elite, including politicians as well as many influential corporate leaders—we have looked at some of the basic concepts involved in the Reset, as well as two extremes to avoid when evaluating it from a Christian perspective.
We need to move on from there to discern how we should properly evaluate these global trends through a Biblical lens (to use a phrase made popular by Ken Ham)—yes, even through the lens of Biblical prophecy.
But before we deal with that specifically, let’s take a moment to reflect and remind ourselves where we are today—and just how far we’ve come in the past 12 months.
We’ve all seen how governments across the world have instituted sweeping new regulations in the wake of a pandemic. Here in the United States—where, perhaps, we assumed that such measures would be untenable—much of the country continues to struggle through imposed shutdowns or other severe restrictions. Yet major questions remain as to both the Constitutional authority to mandate such policies as well as the scientific evidence supporting their efficacy.
The physical, emotional and spiritual effects of these policies have, however, been enormous. This is not to mention the financial ruin suffered by many. One might think that there would be a robust public debate regarding all of this cultural upheaval.
"With a Biden administration and a Democrat–controlled Congress, conservatives will need to do plenty of yelling 'stop!' in the coming months....However, economic support for families is one area where social conservatives can and should find common ground with Democrats." - Public Discourse
Have you heard about the Great Reset?
Well, you may not have heard of it, but its leaders certainly have an incredibly intricate plan for you and your future.
The Reset has been designed by the World Economic Forum for a number of years, and the term has been used specifically since at least 2017.1 The WEF was also preparing for “a very severe pandemic” since at least October of 2019.2
What is the WEF, you ask? According to an article from Forbes, these are “the people who nominally run the global economy.”3
The WEF was founded in 1971 by Prof. Klaus Schwab, who also serves as its executive chairman. Schwab stated this past year:
To achieve a better outcome, the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a “Great Reset” of capitalism.4
He went on to say, famously:
"1. Creativity and work. God the Creator tasked human beings with labor even in the Garden of Eden. This work allows us to refine, purify, and fructify His handiwork. While this does not make human beings co-creators – for only God created all things ex nihilo – it gives us a canvas on which to display the creativity God implanted inside all His children." - Acton
"...millions of well-meaning people think it’s a virtual synonym for compassion. But socialists themselves are constantly retreating from their own handiwork. It’s socialism until it doesn’t work, then it was never socialism in the first place." - IFWE
