Q. I’ve heard the bible mentions that the world will one day accept a one-world government. Does that mean that the conspiracy theorists are right to say that the Bilderberg Group / Illuminati will be a global government, and thus the Illuminati was prophesied in Rev 13:3?
A. The fact that there will be a one world government under the control of the anti-Christ is a widely accepted theory among prophecy scholars. And it’s no secret that groups like the ones you mention have been working toward that same end for some time. Various other religious and secular groups also see a one world government coming. For example, the New Agers believe their man will rule the world, and Moslems look froward to a world wide Islamic Caliphate, a possibility that I think is the most likely one. The actual form it takes won’t be revealed until after the Church is gone.
