No one knows for sure exactly where the phrase, "OUT OF CHAOS COMES ORDER" originated. It may have come from the work of the German Philosopher and Thinker Friedrich Nietzsche who wrote in the 19th Century. But what we do know is that the phrase has been closely associated with the writings of Saul D. Alinsky who was deeply influenced by one of his professors at the University of Chicago, Robert Park. Park believed that the changes in urban society were models or reflectors of the evils of society that should be changed. Alinsky wrote in 1971 that progress is best achieved as an entity, an urban group on a small scale or a world power that sees the opportunity to increase its influence globally seizeing a time of chaos to achieve order. In other words, CHAOS IS NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE ORDER AND TO CREATE THE COMMON GOOD. The idea shouts out loud and clear, "NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE!" That would mean that something that destroys businesses, wrecks the economy, leaves many without jobs and stripped of their constitutional rights is fine because the chaos that exists will eventually lead to order. One does not have to be a rocket scientist to see that our world of today is in a real mess; one could accurately call it, TOTAL CHAOS. The economy of the world is chaotic. The price of fuel, grocery products, and most everything else is out of control. We may be looking at Digital Currency in the near future. Here in the United States we have a southern border that is wide-open: it is estimated as many as 6,000 to 8,000 illegals are walking into the US every single day. We appear to be more divided than ever before: we are knee-deep in discussions about abortion, homosexual marriage, transgenderism and when it comes to politics we have forgotten how to disagree. Not a few are predicting that if the situation gets any worse, we could be looking at CIVIL WAR in the near-future. And to add insult to injury, we have experienced, along with the rest of the world, the chaos of the Covid 19 Pandemic, certainly a dark and trying time for most of us.
A group of un-elected Global Bureaucrats based in Davos, Switzerland are proclaiming to the world that they have the answers. Klaus Schwab, a German lobbyist who heads up the World Economic Forum sees the chaos of the Pandemic as a wonderful opportunity to start over again. Schwab said not too long ago, "THE PANDEMIC REPRESENTS A RARE AND NARROW WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY TO REFLECT AND RESET OUR WORLD, TO CREATE A HEALTHIER WORLD, MORE EQUITABLE AND MORE PREPARED FOR THE FUTURE. Prince Charles of the British Monarchy seconded Schwab's ideas with this thought, "WE have a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to seize something good from this crisis. THE SHOCK WAVES FROM THE PANDEMIC CHAOS MAY WELL MAKE PEOPLE MORE RECEPTIVE TO BIG VISIONS OF CHANGE." The Prince added this thought, "The seeds of this strategy may only flower while the world is distracted amidst enormous chaos. Privacy and freedoms may have to be forfeited for the common good." So these men see CHAOS AS A GOOD THING, and the PERFECT EXCUSE TO CREATE A NEW WORLD. The whole thing seems to dove-tail with what President Biden calls, BUILD BACK BETTER. The president seems to be saying also, "Let's not let this opportunity go to waste. Let's start over and build a better world." But the whole idea raises a lot of questions. Will we still enjoy the freedoms that have made American great: the freedom of free speech, the freedom to worship as we please, the freedoms to pursue life, liberty and happiness? Some of us have serious doubts that that is where these people want us to go? Will it be a world where massive electronic surveillance controls the day? Will it be a technocratic world of 5 G technology? Will our health system be changed? What about jobs and the economy? Will we be able to trust the schools and the teachers of the day? Or will this massive reset that is supposedly coming in 2030 create a two-tied society: those who run the show and all the rest who are subservient to the higher-ups? We better give it some serious thoughts before we buy into their "pie in the sky ideas"!
My Bible does not say one word about man creating a new world. Man is not God and he simply can't do that. The Bible does NOT tell us that MAN can turn things around in this world. My Bible does say however, that THINGS ARE GOING TO GET WORSE BEFORE THEY GET BETTER. See 2 Tim. 3: 1-5, Daniel 12: 1-4, Romans 1: 18-32, and John 14: 1-3. But He, the Great God of Heaven, not some Economic Forum will intervene and will give us a New Heaven and a New Earth. Some of the most powerful words in all of the Bible are found in Rev. 21: 1-6. There the God of the Universe promises to re-build everything. "And God will wipe away ALL TEARS FROM THEIR EYES, THERE WILL BE NO MORE DEATH, NOR SORROW, NOR CRYING, AND THERE SHALL BE NO MORE PAIN, FOR THE FORMER THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY." This wonderful promise of Scripture closes with the thought, "BEHOLD, I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW." (Rev. 21: 5) Sorry but for me, The Great Reset or what Biden would call Build Back Better is simply not going to happen. My faith, my trust is in the Creator God who promises to do FOR US WHAT MAN CAN NOT DO.
