“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.” Luke 2:1-3 (KJV)
The first time that the Lord Jesus Christ came to this earth, as a baby in the manger, the thing that preceded that event was a worldwide, global tax. You can read all about that in Luke 2 in your King James Bible. When Jesus returns at the Second Coming at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble, there will also be a global tax in place. What do you think the United Nations Climate Change Summit in Paris was all about? Do you really think it was about trying to stop the climate from changing? No, obviously not. But beating the war drums on “climate change” is an amazingly-powerful vehicle for gathering all the world together to agree on a global climate tax that every nation in the world will be forced to pay.
Do you know what the globalists passed today? They passed a legally-binding, final draft of the 195-nation agreement to impose a tax on every nation on earth to fight “climate change”. If you are one of those people who take notes whenever some element of Bible prophecy gets fulfilled, please add this to your records. December 12, 2015, in fulfillment of Luke 2:1, a global tax on all the world was issued and approved by the United Nations. Is the United Nations mentioned anywhere in Bible prophecy? It sure is:
“I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” Joel 3:2 (KJV)
If a global tax that precedes the Second Coming is already in place, then how much closer are we then to the Rapture of the Church that precedes the time of Jacob’s trouble? Why, I would say it’s right around the corner.
LE BOURGET, France — With the sudden bang of a gavel Saturday night, representatives of 195 countries reached a landmark climate accord that will, for the first time, commit nearly every country to lowering planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions to help stave off the most drastic effects of climate change.
Delegates who have been negotiating intensely in this Paris suburb for two weeks gathered for the final plenary session, where Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius of France asked for opposition to the deal and, hearing none, declared it approved.
With that, the delegates achieved what had been unreachable for two decades: a consensus on the need to shift from carbon-based fuels and a road map for the 195 nations to do so.
Though the deal did not achieve all that environmentalists, scientists and some countries had hoped for, it set the table for more efforts to slow the slide toward an unlivable planet. It was an extraordinary effort at global diplomacy. Supporters argued that no less than the future of the planet was at stake, and in the days before the final session, they tried relentlessly to persuade skeptical nations.
As they headed into the cavernous hall late Saturday, representatives of individual countries and blocs expressed support for a deal hammered out in a final overnight session on Friday. After a day of stops and starts, Mr. Fabius, the president of the climate conference, declared a consensus and struck the gavel at 7:26 p.m., abruptly closing formal proceedings that had threatened to go into the night. source
