The world recognises 3 main Super Powers. These are -
1. British Commonwealth & America. 2. Russian Confederacy. 3. European Union.
They are large power blocs that control most of the world. We see this operating in the G7. They are the `greatest rulers,` in the world, have the mightiest armies & are the richest nations on earth.
Interestingly God`s word says -
`You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, & those who are GREAT exercise authority over them.` (Matt. 20: 25)
Great: Gk. `megas,` meaning greatest, mighty, strongest.
Now these great Super Powers, which are coming together to form a Global Government, I wonder do we read in God`s word what part they each play?
Yes, God's Word does reveal how the nations will be under the coming world government system. Simply replace that phrase "Global Government" with the 'beast kingdom' idea of Revelation 13:1-2, because that is what it will be, a world monarchy with the coming Antichrist sitting as world king in Jerusalem.
The western Christian nations exist in spirit only now through those who still believe on The Father through His Son Jesus Christ. These nations' governments have already been taken over by Satan's workers on earth. The world leaders don't want to destroy religion just yet, they plan on using it for the end when the Antichrist/false messiah appears.
The EU political structure is a continuation of the eastern Soviet bloc long-range plan by the "workers of iniquity" to create a Socialist one-world government over all nations and peoples (see ex-KGB defector Golitsyn's 1980's book New Lies For Old). The ultimate reason for the Berlin Wall being allowed to come down was to join East with West under a one-Socialist type system in prep for the greater aim of one-world government, like the 1950's Russian Communists said, "a united socialist Europe from the Atlantic to the Urals."
The political structure in the Americas is linked to Britain, and then to the EU. Britain has tried to remain an independent power apart from the EU as much as possible.
The Ezekiel 38 nation alignment that is to come upon Israel on the last day of this world is almost complete today. The only nation mentioned that is still riding the fence between western relations and radical Muslim association is Turkey, which is a member of NATO. Russia, Libya, Persia (Iran, Iraq, Syria), Gomer (old Soviet satellites), Ethiopia (ancient area below Egypt like Sudan, Yemen), are already allied together today. Only Togarmah (Turkey) is still riding the fence and not fully allied with them yet. The other Communist nations like Red China, North Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, etc., of course are allied with Communist Russia and Red China.
The most engulfing international ruling structure over the nations today is the U.N. and its sister organizations. That is where the majority of world globalists meet and devise their plans for the near-future world government system. That political structure is international, meaning its made up of world leaders from all parts of the globe. So it's ludicrous to try and single out just one nation or people on earth that is behind the world government movement.
All of that is mainly about the idea of a small group of men having created a political structure over peoples, and not whole peoples behind it themselves. God revealed this point through His OT prophet Joel and through Daniel concerning a small group of people coming to power with Antichrist in Jerusalem for the end. There are many peace-loving non-Christians in the Far East, Middleast, Russia, Red China, Europe, as well in the Americas. Just because peoples in all nations are beginning to see this political structure being stretched over their governments does not mean all peoples agree with the Internationalists. The mere existence of such an Internationalist structure over the majority of governments today is a kind of miracle in itself. It's an event that shows the principalities and powers behind it could only originate beyond our earth (i.e., in the Heavenly).
I know the Gog/Magog army out of the northern quarters is to come upon Israel to destroy on the last day of this present world, and that's when Christ's return will be to do battle in defeating that great host army, ushering the world into His Millennium reign.
The coming Antichrist/false messiah must be setup in Jerusalem before that great battle of Armageddon per the Biblical order of events. This event of Ezekiel 38 is at the end of the great tribulation time. It will actually end the tribulation with Christ's coming.
8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, "Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?"
14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when My people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
16 And thou shalt come up against My people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against My land, that the heathen may know Me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by My servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that My fury shall come up in My face.
19 For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at My presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all My mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
23 Thus will I magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.
At some point towards the latter half of the great tribulation, Satan and his hosts of Gog and Magog will have an "evil thought", and think to come upon the mountains of Israel to destroy and take a spoil. This great army out of the northern quarters God will destroy by the fire of His wrath, raining great hailstones, fire, and brimstone upon that army, which is a direct link to the Revelation 16:21 great hail weighing a talent (anywhere from 70 to 100 lbs. each).
This points to some defeating event against Satan and his host on earth in the last half of the tribulation that causes him to want to go up against Israel and try to destroy God's people off the face of the earth completely. We know God will send His two witnesses to Jerusalem for the tribulation time, prophesying against the beast and his kingdom for 1260 days, and causing the plagues upon them similar to the days of Moses and Elijah.
We should also not the end Rev.12 where the Scripture declares the "dragon" being cast down to the earth, with those on earth given a 'woe' warning, and his going to make war with the saints on earth that keep God's commandments AND have the Testimony of Jesus Christ. That means Christ's Church is still going to be here earth through all those events, all the way to that last day of Armageddon when Christ returns to do battle against that great army that will come out of the northern quarters.
