When Barack Obama first emerged as a presidential contender, conservatives derided him for his lackluster resume. They made fun of his experience as a “community organizer”. Yet to all those mysterious men (and a few women) who have spent decades working in the shadows crafting policies that have now emerged into the light and become global mandates, (i.e. “Agenda 21”), the title of “community organizer” carries a prestigious meaning. There is no higher compliment among the world’s elite than to be known as a “community organizer” or “change agent”.
Speaking before the General Assembly of the United Nations earlier today (Sept. 24, 2013), President Obama once again paid homage to the collectivist ideals of the U.N., opening his remarks by citing our “common prosperity”. In previous speeches Obama has used many of the same communal terms, referring to mankind’s “common security”, “common destiny” or our “common future”. Obama closed today’s remarks by declaring that, “Time and again, nations and people have shown our capacity to change — to live up to humanity’s highest ideals, to choose our better history.”

So where did the phrase “our common destiny” originate and what does it really mean? Is Obama speaking the truth when he claims that we all share a common future?
For purposes of this discussion I will limit my references to two books that promoted several of the key concepts for what later became known as the Agenda for the 21st Century, or “Agenda 21” . The first book is entitled, Our Common Future: The World Commission on Environment and Development commissioned at the request of the United Nations and published in 1987 by Oxford University Press. That book was quickly followed by a similar volume called, Beyond Interdependence: The Meshing of the World’s Economy and the Earth’s Ecology, a Trilateral Commission book also published by Oxford University Press. This second book firmly establishes the idea that “sustainability” must become the new earth religion guiding mankind’s future. David Rockefeller (founder of the Trilateral Commission) wrote the forward, and that old dragon himself, Maurice Strong, wrote the introduction as he prepared for the public unveiling of Agenda 21 at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio.
In the introduction to Beyond Interdependence, Strong claimed that 2012 was a drop dead date for full implementation of Agenda 21. He wrote that in the event the world failed to fully adopt sustainable development by that date, the nations of the world would face some type of “crisis” (real or manufactured) that would ultimately force compliance. [Note: The U.N. Millennium Development Goal #7 measures progress towards Agenda 21 “Environmental Sustainability”. The deadline to meet all MDG’s has been extended to the end of 2015].
A few years later, in 1994, David Rockefeller reminded a gathering of global billionaires at the United Nations Business Council that, “This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long- We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”
David Rockefeller , (if he’s still alive), would be 98 years old. Maurice Strong, (age 84), has been living in Beijing since 2005, and serves as that government’s top advisor on sustainability and the environment.
Obama has been using the same communal language as these two aged globalists for the past five years. While visiting Jakarta in 2010, (NOTE: Indonesia is the most populous Muslim nation on earth), Obama declared that, “our future security and prosperity is shared”. Obama also said, “I believe that the history of both America and Indonesia gives us hope. It’s a story written into our national mottos. E pluribus unum – out of many, one. Bhinneka Tunggal Ika – unity in diversity.”
Obama concluded his blatantly theosophical remarks thus:
“Ancient traditions endure, even as a rising power is on the move… That spark of the divine lies within each of us. We cannot give in to doubt or cynicism or despair… unity is more powerful than division; and that the people of this world can live together in peace. May our two nations work together, with faith and determination, to share these truths with all mankind.”
What “ancient power” was Obama referring to? What “divine spark”? And why did he use the word “lies” instead of “lives”? In this same speech, Obama also referred to his visit to the Istiqlal Mosque earlier in the day. However, in all this wonderful talk about unity and diversity, the President failed to mention that on the main wall of the mosque is a large metalwork of Arabic calligraphy spelling the name “Allah” on the right side, and “Mohamed” on the left side. In 2008, (the year Obama was first elected), in the center area between the metalwork was a large multi-colored banner with Surah Thaha 1429 written on it. [See comment section for more details.]
Surah 1429 is from the 14th chapter of the Koran, called “Abraham”. It is one of several verses that Muslims have traditionally used in waging a war of terror against anyone who stands in the way of the spread of Islam, or Islamic jihad. It is a verse used to justify the murder of infidels, often cited just before a non-believer is beheaded. Translated into English, Surah 1429 reads, “And they shall all burn in hell!”
It occurred to me that the devil would love to convince us that we really do all share a common destiny. But while the elite politicians of the world are busy trying to unite nations and people around some shared future collectivist model, it is clear that God has other ideas.
Jesus came to redeem mankind out of this messy sin-riddled death-dealing world. He is the Great Divider, the one who separates the wheat from the chaff. We should thank God that we do NOT all share a common destiny. There are really two distinct paths (and only two paths) we can go by. One is the wide path that leads to destruction, the other is the narrow path, the Jesus way, leading to everlasting life and wholeness.
The fires of Hell will certainly become the common destiny for many, but for others there is another destiny.
