End Time Headlines: Preparing for the rise of the Empire-Beast and the Antichrist - Revelation 13:17 (ONE NATION - ONE CARD)

Through the prophecies in the Bible, we can know what is really happening. The world is preparing for the rise of the Empire-Beast and the Antichrist. In fact, the Book of Revelation provides a dire warning to anyone who gets the Mark of the beast. Get Prepared for Christ’s return.


The future Antichrist will have much influence. Revelation 13:3-4, referring to him as “the beast,” says, “The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?” The Antichrist will clearly have global influence and power.

Revelation 13:7-8 “It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.” However, this may be different from claiming the Antichrist leads a one-world government. The tribulation period is described as being full of conflict and strife. The specific governmental structures and context in which these things unfold is not directly stated. 

All unbelievers will give commitment to this Antichrist during the tribulation period. In fact, a mark of the beast will be required on everyone in order to buy or sell items during this time: “No one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name” (Revelation 13:17). Some will refuse this mark and will suffer as a result. The government will be globally controlled, though there may or may not be an official one-world government.

In terms of a one-world currency, a mark of the beast will be required to buy or sell. As a result, there are many ways this could unfold that may or may not include a single currency. Already today, credit cards or online financial transactions can take place between multiple currencies in most countries. A single currency would not be required to fulfill the prophecy regarding the mark of the beast, though this is possible.

One thing that is clear from these future events is that those who live during the tribulation period will face difficult choices. Those who refuse to worship the Antichrist and receive his mark will face suffering, persecution, and starvation. Yet those who come to Christ during this time will remain steadfast in the faith and choose to endure. Scripture challenges people to believe in Jesus now (John 3:16; Ephesian 2:8-9) in order to escape this terrible future time of judgment and live with our Lord in heaven.
