Many who prophesy about doomsday events and the end times in the present day speak about an imminent New World Order—a totalitarian uniting of various powers into a final dictatorial ruler. Those that speak about this power often refer to passages from the Bible, particularly in the book of Revelation. But do these passages actually support their claims? It is true the scenario in the book of Revelation (chapters 13 and 17) refers to a world order, but this could hardly be called “new”. It is more of a return to an old historical order, but this time with an unprecedented worldwide success.
In short: according to the book of Revelation, there will be no consensus and long-term unity. To begin with, the powers mentioned in Revelation (the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet—Revelation 16:13, 19; acc. 12:3; 13:2; 19:20; 20:3) will form a threefold alliance against God and to His people. Later, after the Devil counterfeits the second coming, pretending to be Jesus Christ, for a very short time, all the powers of the earth will submit to this false Christ and, implicitly, to his vicar (see Revelation 17:13; 13:8).
