Will fireworks light up the sky, this evening, to celebrate the day? Did you see or were you in any parades today? Are families celebrating this day, by gathering around their firepits and enjoying s'mores? Is this a day off from work? In answer to these questions, I didn't think so.
A reader asks, “About what is he talking?” Didn't you know? Today is “United Nations Day.” I would not have known, if I hadn't glanced at my desktop calendar and noticed.
Welcome to the sixteenth article, in the worldviews in conflict topic section, dear reader! This brief article recommends the reading of the article, below, that inspired it. It denotes United Nations Day. My comments precede the conclusion, which inspires us to the true source of unity and peace.
Thanks for stopping by, to read a while! You are welcome to comment, agree or disagree. This article is one man's view. Please feel free to make it yours, if it isn't already. My worldview is correct, as I have proved and can prove again, if needed.
Inspiration for this Article
This website's “Folks, to Whom I Subscribe” section lists four other websites. I have free subscriptions, to each one. A favorite is Ileana Writes. Early this morning, I was inspired to write this article, after having read Dr. Johnson Paugh's latest article. It's the same article, on the following two websites.
I'll pause writing, so that you will have time to read her article, on either or both websites. [Ten minute pause.] Greetings, again. Globalist neo-communism, Dr. Johnson Paugh's well-phrased term, is certainly a virus. The disease is transmitted widely, by the United Nations (UN). “Useful idiots” have caught and are catching the virus, in vast majority, around the globe and in this once great nation. We, who are immune, however, are protected, and we are trying to inject the cure, into the “useful idiots,” before it's too late.
United Nations Day
On this date, in 1945, after World War II had ended, the UN Charter was ratified. This year marks the seventy-seventh anniversary of the founding.
The folks at the UN are celebrating. I read “United Nations Day Message - 24 [O]ctober 2023,” on United Nations Peacekeeping (no attribution). The unknown author states, in part, “It is our responsibility to help build that world of peace, sustainable development and human rights for all. I know we can do it. The Charter of the United Nations – which entered into force 78 years ago today – points the way. . . . We are a divided world. We can and must be united nations.”
Yesterday, this once great nation's current president told, whomever was listening, about it. I read “A Proclamation on United Nations Day, 2023,” on The White House, by Joseph R. Biden, Jr., 10/23/2023.
United Nations Day is today! “I'm excited,” as the author stated, in his ho-hum voice. Are you ready to watch the celebrations? What celebrations?
As cited above, the unknown author of today's UN article speaks to us, in the first person. It's our job, apparently, to build their worldview. He or she knows that we can do it. The UN Charter is their bible that points the way, in the author's mind. The anonymous author is correct, in that the world is divided. The ongoing Ukraine-Russia war (started when Russia invaded Ukraine, on 2/24/2022) and the Israel-Hamas war (started, on 10/7/2023, by the Hamas attacks) are only two examples. I agree with the author, in that the nations of the world can and should unite. The question is unite under what worldview?
As cited above, the current president of the USSA (Ununited Socialist States of America, as I prefer to call it) wrote with much pomp and fanfare, to proclaim today as United Nations Day. His proclamation is riddled with the usual socialist catch phrases, such as “climate change,” “climate crisis,” “clean energy,” and “equitable.” He references the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that all United Nations (UN) member states adopted in 2015.
In case you're interested, see: “The 17 Goals” -- on United Nations (UN), UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Sustainable Development. That mammoth conglomeration of web pages includes “169 Targets, 3,858 Events, 1,347 Publications, and 7,775 Actions.” Those socialist goals, as stated, are a “. . . blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.” That labyrinth, as stated, is the “heart” of the UN's “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” That, as I describe it, is the UN's bible, or authoritative source, for their worldview.
I'd thought about adding this article, as the 68th, under the poly-tics (Greek "poly" meaning many & "ticks," blood suckers) topic section. The article, however, is more focused on worldviews in conflict.
As an aside, I didn't know that today is also “National Bologna Day,” until I did some research for this article! (Source: October 24, 2023 | National Food Day | National Bologna Day | United Nations Day, on National Day Calendar®, by Doug, 10/24/2023.) Around here, we call that fine serving of meat “baloney,” not “bologna.” I had a baloney and cheese sandwich, for the noon meal.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has two meanings for “baloney.” The first is as I've already stated. The second is “pretentious nonsense: bunkum -- often used as a generalized expression of disagreement.” Synonyms include “balderdash” and “hogwash.”
United Nations Day, with apology to all socialists, is baloney and hogwash! Since 1945, what is the UN track record, in it's efforts to promote it's so-called peace and unity worldview? What good, practically, has been it's guide (i.e., the UN Charter)? Why are there no parades and fireworks, in every large city, in every nation? We, who are wise, know.
If every person, in every nation, could follow the biblical worldview, then global peace and unity would be achieved. Our hope should not be in the UN, but in the Prince of Peace!
The Messianic prophecy, of Isaiah 9:6-7 (written in 700-681 BC), states, in NIV translation:
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.
Before His vicarious crucifixion, Pilate was questioning Jesus. Jesus replied, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place” (John 18:36, NIV). Again, answering Pilate, Jesus said, in the next verse, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me” (John 18:37, NIV).
This article encourages all people, everywhere, to follow the Prince of Peace. He reigns over His kingdom, or church, from heaven, even now. Listen to and follow His eternal truth.
It is possible. A few days ago, by online contact with a friend and sister in Christ, I became aware of the following article. You are welcome to read: “'God Didn't Design Us to Hate:' Former Hezbollah Fighter Now Ministry Leader Recalls Encounter with Jesus,” on CBN News, 10/16/2023. Apparently, this former Hezbollah fighter, Afshin Javid, had an encounter with Jesus, which led to his conversion. His story reads similarly, to that of Saul's (who became the apostle Paul), in Acts 9:1-19; 22:3-16; 26:9-18.
Dear Lord, as my written prayer, in Jesus' name, thank you for your grace, through Christ Jesus. May this divided world unite, in peace, by following the True Source of unity and peace. Amen.
