Revelations 18:23 ‘For the merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.’

Important Takeaways:

  • Portland foundry Columbia Steel to close after 121 years, lay off workers
  • Columbia Steel Casting Co., a Portland metal casting company that dates back more than a century, told state regulators Wednesday it plans to shut down operations at its North Portland foundry and lay off most of its workforce.
  • The company said 225 employees, many represented by three different unions, would be laid off beginning in October. The filing indicated the closure would be permanent, though a letter to employees indicated that the company was in talks with “various companies” about buying the foundry and maintaining operations.
  • CEO Martha Cox told employees that the company had faced fierce competition from overseas competitors, some of them subsidized by their governments. She said state and local environmental regulations had also put the company at a disadvantage to those competitors.
  • The fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic had exacerbated the company’s issues, Cox said in the letter, with hang-ups in the global supply chain disrupting shipments to a key customer and travel restrictions putting a damper on sales.

Biden Empowering an international compliance committee by giving authority to WHO

Revelation 13:7 “Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation”

Important Takeaways:

  • Is Joe Biden About to Give the World Health Organization Authority Over the US Government?
  • The World Health Organization’s 75th World Health Assembly meets in Geneva, Switzerland May 22-28 to vote on amendments from the Biden administration to the WHO’s International Health Regulations
  • The 13 pages of amendments certainly look as if they grant the WHO the right to tell the U.S. what to do in a pandemic.
  • They appear to allow the WHO to declare a pandemic emergency in the United States, require the US to report to an international “Compliance Committee” on whether it was obeying WHO directives, and would create an enforcement mechanism to essentially punish nations that don’t do what the WHO says.
  • Travis Weber, vice president for Policy and Government Affairs at the Family Research Council says even if the International Health Regulations had the force of a treaty, the U.S. Constitution would have the final say and not the WHO.

US President recognizes “A New World Order is coming”

Revelation 13:1-2.” I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on his horns, and blasphemous names on his heads. 2 The beast which I saw was like a leopard. His feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority.

Important Takeaways:

  • Joe Biden Just Let the Cat out of the Bag: A ‘New World Order’ Is Coming
  • According to the White House, Biden met with “16 CEOs of major companies across several industries including energy, food, and manufacturing to provide a briefing on the latest developments on Putin’s unprovoked and unjustified war against Ukraine.”
  • Joe Biden said something that has a lot of people talking — he said the quiet part out loud. He noted the pandemic gave them “significant opportunities” to change things, that this was an “inflection point” in the world that occurs every three to four generations. Then he mentioned the “new world order” that was to come.
    • “As one…of the top military people said to me in a secure meeting the other day, 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946…Since then, we’ve established a liberal world order and that hadn’t happened in a long while. A lot of people died, but nowhere near the chaos. And now’s the time when things are shifting…there’s going to be a new world order out there and we’ve got to lead it. And we’ve got to unite the rest of the free world in doing it.”
  • On top of that, listen to how he phrased things — how millions of people dying led to the present “liberal world order” and now there’s a new world order coming again? Please, tell us more, I’d like to know what further chaos is coming. And I thought all this thing about a new world order was supposed to be a conspiracy? Looks like Joe Biden doesn’t think it is.
