By Rosanne Bowman LIMA — Gary Kah's plan was not to become a writer and speaker on the topics of Biblical prophesy and a one-world government, but that is what he has been doing for the past 20 years. Kah, who will be speaking at Shawnee Alliance Church on May 19, earned a degree from Anderson College in economics where he received their Wall Street Journal Economic Achievement Award. After getting his degree, he worked for the state government of Indiana as their Europe and Middle East Trade Specialist during the 1980s. “I was the point man for the state of Indiana,” Kah explained. “It was my job to try to get our products over to Europe and the Middle East.”Kah, because of his government and economics work, was invited to be a part of the World Constitution and Parliament Association whose goal, he said, was globalization of governments and religion.“It sounds almost impossible to believe,” he said, “but they had already drafted a prototype of a world constitution in the name of democracy. They also wanted to make one religion because without a world religion, it would be impossible to have a one-world government. This has been going on behind the scenes for 25 to 30 years, but I have the documents. I make it a point that everything I say is thoroughly documented — people would have to go out of their way to try to say I fabricated any of this.”It was during this time that Kah left his job to research and write his first book, “En Route to Global Occupation,” which was published in 1991. He wrote a second book in 1999 titled “The New World Religion.” Since that time, he mainly keeps people informed through his newsletter, “Hope for the World Update.”“It's more of a news journal,” he said. “It's usually around 20 pages long. I switched to using the newsletter because by the time I wrote a book, which typically takes around a year to a year and a half to hit shelves, all the information in it would be outdated.”Kah's mission statement is, “To inform and motivate the church ... instilling in Christians a sense of urgency about sharing the Gospel of Christ while challenging them to a higher level of commitment and discernment.”He does this not only through his newsletters but also through his speaking engagements and talk show appearances. To date, he has been on more than 1,200 television and radio programs.“I mainly do small- to medium-sized shows,” Kah explained. “Most of the major secular talk shows, the hosts come from a pro-globalization position. They don't want to hear about what's behind it and why it's not good for us.”Kah has very personal reasons for wanting to inform the average American about what he sees going on behind the scenes. “I am the son of emigrants,” he said. “My dad was a refugee from Croatia, and he lost everything. When I was growing up, I realized what he had been through, so in about fifth or sixth grade, I made a commitment to the Lord that if what happened in my parents' country ever happened here, I would take a stand.”Kah never envisioned his stand would turn into a 20-year ministry, letting him travel around the country and overseas sharing his insights.He supports his ministry through newsletter subscriptions and his speaking engagements. He estimated that he does anywhere from 25 to 80 speaking engagements plus talk show appearances yearly. The first year, he did 180 talk shows and 80 speaking engagements, but he found he could not keep up that pace and still have time for his three children, now adults, and his wife. Kah has also been the recipient of numerous awards including the Governor's Commendation for Outstanding Service Award to the state of Indiana and the Meritorious Hoosier Award. Roy Gillespie, who heads a small group at Shawnee Alliance Church that is focused almost exclusively on Biblical prophesy, had played several of Kah's videos for his class. When he found out that Kah was located in Indiana, the group decided to have Kah speak at their church. Gillespie and Kah's goals are similar for the event, as both would like attendees to take away a deeper understanding of current events and how they fit into the bigger picture of Biblical prophesy. “Through informing people and getting them to piece together the big picture,” Kah sad, “I'm hoping to create a healthy sense of urgency for them to share the Gospel. We are living in fearful times, but we can use that to bring a very positive result.”If you have a story idea or an item you feel the community would like to know about for the Religion section, please contact Rosanne Bowman at email@example.com or 419-516-6149.
