One World Government? – New World Order?
The Books of Daniel and the Revelation are about the history of the Imperial powers that have ruled the nations. These prophecies have nearly run their course and we now live at the time of the last of them, i.e. the ten nations, which are represented by toes in Dan 2 and horns in Dan 7 and Rev 12,13, &17. You may have been taught that these ten nations are in our immediate future. However there are no gaps in the metal man of Dan 2, these ten nations have been around since Rome fell in 476 A.D. There have been wars, they have merged. they have had revolts, from time to time there have been slightly more or less then ten, but when the dust settles there they are, TEN.
The only empire in the prophecies that is still future is the one represent by the rock not cut with hands Dan 2. Nearly everyone thinks this is the Millennial reign of Messiah. There is no future human government like the New World Order or One World Government. No matter how much men may try, it is just not there. In fact the book of Daniel expressly says that it cannot happen. When speaking of the toes it says;
As you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay. Dan. 2:43.
Which pretty much sums up European history. They have mixed, but no matter how hard they try they have not been able to hold together. Not since the tower of Babel have men been able to hold themselves together. [Gen 11] Charlemagne, Charles V, Louis XIV, Napoleon, and finally Hitler have all failed at this monumental task. The only way to accomplished this task, is to concede it to the One with a Rod of Iron. [Rev. 19:15] So we must wait till Shiloh come.
The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. Gen. 49:10
All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD;
and all the families of the nations shall worship before him.
For dominion belongs to the LORD, and he rules over the nations.
Yea, to him shall all the proud of the earth bow down;
before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,
and he who cannot keep himself alive.
Posterity shall serve him;
men shall tell of the Lord to the coming generation,
and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn,
that he has wrought it. Psa. 22:27 -31
