Daniel 7 [Part 3] | What Is the One-World Government in the Bible?

The one-world government in the Bible is described in the book of Daniel and Revelation. What are the connections between the two books?
DANIEL 7 describes a fourth beast different from the others described in previous verses. It is “exceedingly dreadful with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze.” This beast has ten horns and an eleventh horn comes up from among the ten with a “mouth which spoke pompous words.” This is the Antichrist.
REVELATION 13 describes a ruler of a large empire with great power and authority given to him by Satan. This ruler has “seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name… The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.”
Both books describe the Antichrist, which contains the power of Satan. Satan’s goal is to establish absolute dominion over all the earth and people.
Satan’s desire has always been to be worshiped as God, to sit on the throne of God, and to steal the Kingdom of God.
How does he plan to do this?
· False christs and false prophets
False Messiah-like figures will come in the last days.
“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”—Matthew 24:24
· False worship, signs and wonders
The point of the false signs and wonders is to deceive many into false worship. The false prophet will force all humanity into this false worship.
“And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?’”—Revelation 13:3-4
