A "Great Reset" is coming - but it is not the one now being implemented by the globalists of the World Economic Forum.

In January of 2020 members of the world's elite, meeting in Davos, Switzerland at the World Economic Forum, launched what they have called the "Great Reset" initiative to transform the world's economies, societies, and governments to do the bidding of the leaders of global corporations with no national loyalties.

Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, wrote at the time that "every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed." Schwab declared that "all aspects of our societies and economies" including the world's educational systems must be "revamped" to support this agenda.

Man's Great Reset: Rebellion Against God

The Great Reset calls for effective control of national and regional governments by multinational corporations and their allies in academia. Populations are to be controlled through propaganda taking the place of education, and through economic, environmental, and social-credit controls. Social-credit systems measure an individual's compliance with the Great Reset regime, and grant or withhold basic rights and privileges based on an individual's degree of compliance. Governments are to be controlled through the giving or withholding of the economic and political favors of globalists, and the placement of young leaders indoctrinated in the Great Reset agenda in key positions of influence and authority.

The existence and practice of religion is to be permitted only to the extent that it does not interfere with, and far better yet supports, the Great Reset agenda. Christian private schools and Christian homeschooling are anathema to the promoters of the Great Reset - unless the curricula can be subverted to support their agenda. They consider the authentic Christian worldview that holds the Scriptures to be God's inspired, infallible, inerrant Word, and man's sole source of ultimate authority, to be unacceptably antagonistic to their agenda. Thus Roman Catholicism and Judaism, which hold the pronouncements of a religious establishment to have authority over Scripture and its interpretation, have become ready partners in shaping and promoting the Great Reset.

As even the most die-hard leftists now readily admit, the Great Reset is not the stuff of unfounded conspiracy theories, but an actual work in progress.

The Spirit Behind the Great Reset

Behind it all is the mentality we find at the beginning of the second Psalm:

Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, "Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us."

We find the same prideful mentality in the words of Lucifer as he rebelled against the Lord of glory, fell from his high position in the throne room of God, and was given dominion over the earth under the curse of sin:

How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: "I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High." (Isaiah 14:12-14)

Christians need to understand that the Great Reset, like all other efforts of sinful man to supposedly bring about long-lasting order on earth, is doomed to failure. We also need to understand that all such events occur under the sovereign control of the Lord Jesus Christ, now on the throne of Heaven, who declared, "All authority has been given to me in Heaven and on Earth" (Matthew 18:18).

A Far Different "Great Reset" Is Coming

The Word of God tells us that a far different "Great Reset" is coming under the power and authority of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is not the Great Reset of the fallen men of the World Economic Forum shaking their puny fists at the Lord's authority, but the restoration of the original created order to its pre-Fall glory - and much more. We read of Christ's coming Great Reset in Ephesians chapter 1:

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth - in Him. (Ephesians 2:7-10)

We also read of it in Colossians chapter 1:

For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

And in the second chapter of Philippians we find this description of Christ's coming "Great Reset" -

And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:8-11)

When will Christ's "Great Reset" occur? Scripture tells us that it will take place "in the dispensation of the fullness of the times." When will that be? We shall take up that question as we continue.
