The third pillar upon which the government of antichrist will rest is his control of the global economy. The global economy exists now, but what is missing is some kind of centralized authority. Right now, that centralized authority would be the central bank of issue for the de-facto global currency — the US Federal Reserve.
The newly printed dollars are only legal because the Fed has the authority to print them, not the money to back them. So the world is — right now — looking for a new global currency.
The prophet Daniel says the antichrist is a prince of the empire that he prophesied would destroy Jerusalem and the Temple. That destruction was accomplished in AD 70 by Titus, a general and later, emperor of the Roman Empire. (Daniel 9:27)
It is abundantly clear that most of the nations of the Western world would be only too happy to submit to one, should he arise. Even the world’s oldest continuous monarchy is prepared to bend its royal knee — even over an issue that has divided the monarchy since the days of Henry VIII.
That issue, ‘religion’ — is the second pillar upon which the antichrist’s infrastructure rests. John prophesied of a second ‘beast’ — the false prophet — who will elevate the antichrist to the position of deity. (Revelation 13:11-17)
The Bible says that in the last days, God will send a ‘strong delusion’ but that delusion will only affect those “who received not the love of the truth that they might be saved.”
