It is fascinating to watch as this plan comes together. Here we find different prophecies from different parts of the Bible, made in different eras, overlapping and becoming interdependent upon one another to bring about their fulfillment.
The global religion is continuing to develop. It is unclear what its final form will be...
It is the fear of catastrophic climate change that is driving both the global warming alarmists and the global government proponents.
But it is taking on all the trappings of a global religion.
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.
But that is all changing as the US dollar continues to lose its luster on the international exchange market, thanks to the Fed decision to flood the market with trillions of technically counterfeit dollars.
The rest of the world’s central banks aren’t fooled. Counterfeit is the word used to describe a fraudulent imitation of something valuable and important.
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)
The Apostle John pictures the antichrist as a political leader who rises up out of the sea of nations. (Revelation 13:1) Before this global emperor can arise, there must first be empire in need of one.
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.”
In the last days, the Bible says the whole world will be conditioned to accept a savior, a messiah of sorts, who will seem to have all the answers to the religious, economic and political problems facing the world.
The Bible demands the existence of a global government (in need of leadership) a global economy (in need of leadership) and a global religion (in need of leadership.) The world demands global leadership, period. Any leader will do, provided they like what he promises.
It isn’t even relevant that they know he can’t deliver. It is the promise that is important. Barack Obama was elected on a platform of ‘change we can believe in’ without ever articulating the changes he had in mind.
Never in the history of man has it been possible to impose a global government, global religion and global economy. Not politically. Not administratively. Not technologically.
Throughout history, and up to only seventy years ago, efforts to unite the globe under a single government was a recipe for world war. Today, it is seen as the only option available to avert one.
The need for some kind of globally-acceptable religion is palpable — only the fundamentalists of the three largest religions would have any objection.
And I don’t know if the current economic system will survive what is looking more and more like a repeat of the Great Depression.
A comparison of economic conditions between today and the same point in time following the Crash of 1929 suggests we’re in much worse shape today than we were then. Unemployment is higher, the stock market is lower, and world trade has fallen off the charts.
Here is what I do know. I know that the Bible says that three things would have to come into existence, more or less simultaneously, as part of the overall blueprint of Bible prophecy for the last days. Those three things are the global government, global religion, and global economy.
At no time in all of recorded history were all three systems “on the table” so to speak. But they are today.
Even the most ardent and determined skeptic can’t deny the trends — at best they can only quibble over the details. But the all the signs are there — and the signs are what Jesus told His disciples to watch out for.
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)
