The Bible indicates that there is a time coming when the “anti-christ” will arrive on the world scene to assume power over the every nation and all people to demand worship and allegiance from everyone on the planet. For him to assume power over the whole world there will have a be some kind of one-world government in place that controls all spheres of politics, the military, finance, trade, etc.
See this link for some of the Bible references – Does the Bible prophesy a one-world government in the end times?
There has been an aggressive move towards globalism in recent years and this will only accelerate as world conflict, economic chaos, crime and natural disaster continues to increase in frequency and intensity. We believe the subtle (and not so subtle!) calls for a global government or New World Order will become louder as many see this is the only solution to the world problems. This fits in perfectly with Bible prophecy and will provide the machinery for a malevolent dictator to step in and to usher in the time the Bible describes as the “great tribulation”.
With this is mind was interesting to hear the pope calling for this new world government (with Roman Catholic doctrines of course!) in his New Year address – Pope calls for world government.
