From Babel to Europa, there has been a fifth system that tried to unite the political, religious and economic systems. Revelation 13 tells us that during the Tribulation, the Antichrist controls a political system (Beast), the false prophet controls a religious system (Woman) and they control the people through an economic system (Mark of the Beast). For three and a half years, the Antichrist succeeds in uniting the world but is defeated when Jesus Christ returns to rule the world.
Have you ever wondered what the end of the world looks like? Look at a world map and see God at work among the peoples of the world.
