Many people, including Christians are waiting for a one world government to be set up, that will rule the earth. Yes, there is no doubt that the powers of this earth are trying to set up a one world government that will totally rule the world and they will succeed to a certain extent to be able to enforce the mark of the beast. But the world will never become united under a single world nation again like in the past under Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome. You see, God revealed to Daniel that Rome would be the last single one world ruling kingdom. After Rome, on this great image, we have the feet of iron and clay. Now what did Daniel say about the feet?
Daniel 42-43 …’And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.’
After Rome fell, it split into the kingdoms of Europe. Now we know that people in the past have tried to unite Europe into one nation to rule the world, and they will continue to try like the European Union and United Nations are doing today, but as we can see from the prophecy of Daniel 2 above, they shall not ‘cleave one to another’ and shall not succeed. The leaders of this world can try all they like to form a one world united ruling nation, but if God has shown through bible prophecy that it cannot happen again, then it won’t. Don’t get me wrong, the nations of this world will come together in “agreement” for a short time to force the laws of the beast (Roman Catholic Church) upon the world, as it says in Revelation 17:12-13 that the ten kings shall give their power to the beast and reign with the beast for “one hour”.
You will see in Revelation 13 that one of the end time beast powers (see America in Prophecy) causes the earth to receive the mark of the beast (mark of Roman Catholic Church), and any who refuse, will be killed. So we will have two earthly “powers” so to speak in the last days. The sea beast of Revelation 13 that gets it’s power from the “ten kings” (kingdoms), and the earth beast of Revelation 13 which is America. But notice that Daniel says this final earthly power will be partly strong from the iron of Rome, and it will also be weak from the clay and it won’t be able to cleave together properly. Therefore this “agreement” between the kingdoms will only last a short time. The only completely united single ruling kingdom that is coming is the Kingdom of Christ Jesus, which will smash the kingdoms of this earth to pieces and will reign forever more! Praise God!
Daniel 7:26 – 27
26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
