Commentary By: Gordon King
Most of us have heard of the United Nations, yet how many have heard of UNESCO? The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization.
This organization was formed in 1945 as a branch of the United Nations, and in their own words:
“UNESCO was created in order to respond to the firm belief of nations, forged by two world wars in less than a generation, that political and economic agreements are not enough to build a lasting peace. Peace must be established on the basis of humanity’s moral and intellectual solidarity.”
They say that political and economic agreements are not enough to build lasting peace. But peace must be established on the basis of humanity’s morals and intellectual solidarity.
This is where the world is headed, towards a government (One World Government), which is trying (they say) to bring about peace in the world. The problem with all of this is that it is all based on human morals, not the morals of God, based on human intellect, not the intellect of God!
How many times do we read in the bible about peace and safety, about a false peace, about the Antichrist coming on the scene to promote peace and unite the people?! Scripture tells us that there will be a One World Government headed by the Antichrist, and I believe that the United Nations and UNESCO sets the framework for such a government.
Here is another snippet from UNESCO’s website:
“UNESCO is known as the “intellectual” agency of the United Nations. At a time when the world is looking for new ways to build peace and sustainable development, people must rely on the power of intelligence to innovate, expand their horizons and sustain the hope of a new humanism. UNESCO exists to bring this creative intelligence to life; for it is in the minds of men and women that the defences of peace and the conditions for sustainable development must be built.”
The hope of a new humanism, that about sums it up! Advancing the human intellect in order to expand and sustain “humanism”. Everything which goes against what God tells us, rebellion against the Almighty!
This is what I came up with when I Googled the word “humanism”:
“an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems.”
That says a mouthful my friends, a system with prime importance to “human” rather than “divine” matters! Stressing the potential value and goodness of human beings! We already know from scripture that no one is good, that we all are born into this world with a sinful heart. What this tells me is that UNESCO is seeking the wisdom of the world not the wisdom of God to promote a humanistic agenda, that they know better than God, and that they are superior in their intellect and wisdom compared to God! Instead of seeking God, they seek themselves, they seek the world view and follow the ruler of this world, Satan!
The following is something that recently caught my attention regarding UNESCO is their vote to condemn Israel!
“The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) voted in favor of no fewer than six resolutions condemning Israel at its 192nd Session of the 56-member Executive Board in Paris on Friday.”
UNESCO is also attempting to wipe Israel and it’s ancient past from the pages of history!
‘On April 11, 2016, the Executive Board of UNESCO adopted a resolution called “Occupied Palestine.” The title immediately exposes it as a biased document. That is not surprising. All the texts adopted by UNESCO concerning the Middle East are biased.
However, those who read it carefully can see that a further step was taken.
UNESCO’s resolution is not only biased: it is negationist. All traces of Jewish presence in Jerusalem and Judea in ancient times are eliminated at the stroke of a pen. The Temple Mount is never mentioned. It is only called by the name al-Aqsa Mosque / Haram al Sharif. The name “Western Wall” is placed between quotation marks, to indicate that it is an invalid name: Al Buraq Wall is used without quotation marks. The graves of Jewish cemeteries are described as “Jewish fake graves.”
It is a radical anti-Semitic resolution: denying historical fact, claiming that what exists does not, presenting the history of Judaism and the Jews as lies. Accusing Jews of “planting Jewish fake graves” is the lie. It is saying that Judaism is a sham and Jews are liars and falsifiers.
The document is absolutely anti-historical, anti-fact and “anti-Zionist”: it tries unambiguously to “prove” that Israel was founded on an imposture and has no reason to exist. The document constantly describes Israel as the “occupying power” and presents it as a predatory and arbitrary country.
Voting for such a text means would endorsing historical negationism, radical anti-Semitism, and absolute “anti-Zionism”.
Correctly deciphering the meaning of the resolution and its implications, the representatives of six Western countries — the United States, Estonia, Germany, Lithuania, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom — voted no.
Representatives of other Western countries — France, Spain, Sweden, Slovenia — accepted the text and voted yes.
The resolution was presented with the support of several Muslim countries — some often described as “moderate”: Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco.
The text was written by Palestinian Authority (PA) “experts.” Since 2011, the Palestinian Authority has had a seat at UNESCO under the name “State of Palestine.”
The Israeli government immediately expressed its anger. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that “anyone, let alone an organization tasked with preserving history, could deny this link which spans thousands of years.” ‘
UNESCO also voted in 2011 to give the Palestinians full member ship!
“The United Nations’ cultural agency decided on Monday to give the Palestinians full membership of the body, a vote that will boost their bid for recognition as a state at the United Nations.”
UNESCO is a body of individuals and countries seeking their own evil agenda. They are not serving God Almighty, they are serving the father of all lies Satan! They seek the destruction of what is holy and good, and instead replace it with lies, with what is unholy and evil.
They condemn those who are godly, and praise those who wish to destroy what belongs to God!
To condemn Israel and the Jews as a whole, is to condemn God’s chosen people! To attempt to erase thousands of years of Jewish history is to erase God from their lives, in an attempt to erase God from the world!
Christians are not Jews, at least not in a physical sense, yet we have been grafted into the Jewish lineage! Jesus Christ was a Jew, a Jewish rabbi and God, least we not forget. Many believers do not support Israel or the Jews, yet God tells us to bless them, and He also tells us that those who curse Israel will be cursed!
Take a look at the whole picture, and you will see a pattern. This pattern is of the world and evil spirits attempting to destroy God’s plan. When you look at one incident, then you only see one small piece of the puzzle, yet when you piece them all together they form an entire picture. This is how we must view what is now happening in the world, not from a human perspective, but from God’s perspective!
There is an evil in the world, one which seeks our destruction and the destruction of what is holy and righteous. This evil is real, and it is manifesting itself into our physical dimension. The close we get to the beginning of the Tribulation period, the more we will see this evil in the world. Time is short, and the evil ones know it! Satan, the father of all lies, is hard at work seeking to devour whom he may, do not be caught in his trap of lies and deception!
UNESCO, friend or foe? An organization leading to true peace, or leading to a false peace and a false hope? You decide!
Lord God in heaven hallowed be Your name! Give us all the wisdom and insight, the knowledge and understanding to know what is true and what is a lie. Help us to discern between good and evil. Show us Your ways, and make known to us Your will. Bless the nation of Israel and Jerusalem, protect Your chosen people and bring them closer to You. Give them visions and dreams of the true Messiah, and give them a heart of repentance and salvation. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
