Revelation 13:7: 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.
The bible predicts a worldwide governmental system and religion. For years, people have mocked those who have warned of world government crying out the 1984 "thought criminal" mantra [well the actual phrase is "conspiracy theorist"]. For those who are watching the turmoil across the globe, it is happening for a reason in the Middle East and elsewhere. Controlled food shortages and more are leading to protests in even some new places like India. We have watched the uprisings in Egypt, Libya's, Greece's and others are just getting started. Some are already discussing the effects this will have on the price of oil and elsewhere I saw someone theorizing gas could hit $5 dollars a gallon if not higher. The world powers are printing money like crazy. Could the rapid devaluement of all world currencies, be with the end goal of a world currency? From "The Economic Collapse"blog:
"It means that some tremendous imbalances are being built up in the global financial system. The central banks of the world must continue to inflate these bubbles with constantly increasing amounts of paper money and debt in order to keep the game going. If at some point the reckless money printing comes to a screeching halt it is going to unleash hell on global financial markets.
But if all of this reckless money printing continues we are eventually going to see horrific inflation all over the planet. In fact, we are already seeing significant inflation happening in many areas of the globe. Almost every single day a new headline about inflation in China seems to pop up in the financial news. Rising food prices are sparking unrest in the Middle East and elsewhere. Even U.S. consumers are starting to see some uncomfortable price increases at the gas pump and in the supermarket."
And yes in America, we are seeing some of the signs of possible trouble to come, the union protests in Wisconsin, where the "solution" given is to end all collective bargaining in that state, yes the unions did become corrupt, but that definitely leads workers to have no more rights. What is the core problem? The states are broke. Our economy sinks down and down, as the media assures Americans there is a recovery in sight which does not really represent reality.
Never forget the "order out of chaos" formula. What will be given as the solution to all this? It is interesting to think about. What is the end road to all this global turmoil and economic ruin? The Bible definitely tells us that bad times are coming to this world and points to a world government holding immense power on behalf of the antichrist. When one hears the "globalist rhetoric" like this from Obama "It is imperative that the nations and peoples of the world speak with one voice,", times have become very interesting indeed.
These things have been planned for a very long time. Read some quotes like this:
"In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all." Strobe Talbot, President Clinton's Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, 1992."

See where it is all going?
