Many speculate that there is an ongoing effort behind-the-scenes to bring a New World Order, a global government, to the forefront. The work to bring a New World Order is a topic that I do not write about often. In this article, I will primarily focus on whether we can use the Bible to support the notion that there’s an ongoing effort to bring a New World Order to the forefront.
The Bible suggests that the Antichrist will someday have an empire whose influence will dominate the earth:
(23) Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. (24) And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. (25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” (Daniel 7:23-25)
The Bible also suggests that this empire is likely going to form as a result of Antichrist conquering many countries and from leaders surrendering their power to Antichrist:
“(36) And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. (37) Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. (38) But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. (39) Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.” (Daniel 11:36-39)
“(12) And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. (13) These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” (Revelation 17:12-13)
Based on the verses cited above, it appears that the Antichrist is the main catalyst that brings us a New World Order (global government) rather than the potential efforts of people today. Again, Antichrist will establish his dominance over the world by conquering countries and by persuading leaders to surrender their power to him.
You are going to have difficulty finding a verse in the Old Testament or in the New Testament that explicitly states something like: “watch out because Satan has followers who are working to build a New World Order”. However, there may be evidence that Satan has had and continues to have the capacity to work towards bringing a New World Order. The Apostle Paul warned us that Satan has spiritual forces at work to such a major extent that they should be our primary cause of concern:
“(11) Put on all the armor of God, for you to be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil, (12) because wrestling against flesh and blood is not to us, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world’s rulers, of the darkness of this age, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenlies.” (Ephesians 6:11-12)
These spiritual forces have the ability to influence human affairs, including geopolitical events, as demonstrated in my article about Hitler and Stalin. Thus, ongoing efforts towards establishing a future New World Order (global government) may be transpiring under the context of the ongoing spiritual warfare.
