    Is the "one world government" Biblical?

    The term "one world government" is not actually mentioned in the Bible.

    But still many Christians talk about it a lot today. Many even suggest there will be a one world currency, which is not mentioned in the Bible either.

    There is as we know "the mark of the Beast" to buy and sell later in the tribulation, but that does not mean that there is a one world currency.

    Some might even suggest the UN might be a one world government, but the UN is made out of multiple countries with different governments.

    Then there is the symbolic language of Revelation.

    Revelation 13:1

    Then I saw a beast rising up out of the sea. It had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns. And written on each head were names that blasphemed God.

    Which many interpret as different nations, different rulers and different kingdoms.

    That sounds about right. I know a horn is a ruler.

    OP ^

    Yes.

    Rev 13:
    [4] And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
    [5] And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
    [6] And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
    [7] And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
    [8] And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

    Glory to God,

    It's happening. Pandemic is a mask for the Mark.
    Revelation 13:16-17 (NKJV)
    16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
    17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Then there is the matter of who the "kings of the east" might be. And who are the other kings mentioned?

    Revelation 16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
    11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

    12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
    13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
    14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

    How would you understand Daniel 2:43 Enoch. It speaks of our time and the attempt to unite, yet it tells us it won't happen ie, unity of 'these kings' .... just as iron won't mix with clay

    What it also reveals is the closeness of the 'stone cut without hands' ie, Jesus return. The attempts at unity are well underway on all levels....the string pullers are straining to that end.....control from their perspective is nearly within grasp yet according to Daniel's interpretation 'they will not adhere one to another'......further, 'in the days of these kings the God of Heaven will set up a Kingdom which will never be destroyed'

    Also an interesting point to note; all the other kingdoms will be destroyed.....hmmmm, 'destroyed' as I understand it meaning vanish 'like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found' Dan. 2:36

    What's more....Daniel concludes in Vs 45, 'the dream is certain and its interpretation sure'

    Hi Josho,

    Will this do?

    Mat 4:8-9 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. (9) And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me."

    hmmmm, 'kings of the east....' further, 'the dragon, the beast and the false prophet.....' further ' the spirits of devils working miracles....'

    You might reference it with Daniel 2:44

    I agree. They are testing the water. Or they are being patient.

    I disagree with you on the mask, maskes are just PPE, they have been around for a while.

    Someone had to wear a mask to do business with me about 9 weeks ago, I was wearing one too. It's for your own safety. ;)

    It's definitely not the mark though, the mark of the beast does not come in until the Great Tribulation....

    Correct. That unity will be a superficial unity, and in the end all those kingdoms under the Antichrist will be smashed by Christ, who will establish His Kingdom on earth after His Second Coming:

    Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone [CHRIST] that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. (Dan 2:35)

    And there was given Him [CHRIST] dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. (Dan 7:14)

    And through his [THE ANTICHRIST'S]policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes;[CHRIST] but he shall be broken without hand. (Dan 8:25)

    The Antichrist will by peace shall destroy many. Daniel was given a vision of how the Antichrist would establish a false peace on earth worldwide, but particularly for Israel, and then violate his peace treaty. The anarchy and chaos of today is leading up to a worldwide outcry for peace, and the Antichrist will establish it. But in the end he shall be "broken without hand" by Christ, and cast into the Lake of Fire. Genuine peace will be established after Christ takes control of this earth and rules with a rod of iron.

    Now thats a pretty water tight argument Josho.....particularly the term 'It's for your own safety'.

    Consider how laws yet to be implemented will draw on this to get the approval of the masses....'its for your own safety'.....and so the net is cast.

    The 2 beasts act as "false gods" though as an Anti-Christ.... And if you read it carefully, you will realize nations is still a plural with an s behind....

    The pandemic is very real.

    But I think many are thinking too much of the natural when it comes to the 2 beasts. I believe they will operate under witchcraft and black magic.
