Charles Whitaker, focusing upon Deuteronomy 29:4, where God reveals that He had not given the ancient Israelites an understanding mind "until that very day," discusses His revelation in Deuteronomy 29 and 30.

John Ritenbaugh marvels about the scope of God's mind, His patience and meticulous planning, having taken place before the foundation of the world, perhaps more than 10 billion years ago (allowing for mankind's limited tenure of nearly 6,000 years.)

Yes, globalism is a big movement, energized by the ideologies of many Shemitic nations—Israelite and non-Israelite alike, the European and North American nations that constitute the Occident.

Protestantism alleges that God's law is 'done away.' What Scripture shows, though, is that some aspects are not required presently, but God's law is eternal.
As Israel comes to itself, God will gently re-gather His people from their exile, an event which will make reconciliation available to the entire world.
John Ritenbaugh, suggesting that while Passover, not really a Holy Day, is inextricably bound to the Days of Unleavened Bread, and the Last Great Day, while a Holy Day, is bound inextricably to the Feast of Tabernacles.
