Genesis Chapter 11, describes what God did to the World when the people sought World unity.
Yes, I assume the "Divide and Conquer' method was used by God, when he first saw the ill ways of the World.
Yet here We are 4,218 years later trying to repeat the same mistake. But God knows what will occur, and how he will punish and redress the World.
The Antichrist Will Usher a New World Order. The whole World will worship him. The Whole World will be united under one rule: HIS RULE.
Unfortunately brothers and sisters, there is only One supreme Kingdom: The Kingdom of God.
And there is only One King: His One and only Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Anything else, is just wannabe Kings. Non anointed Kings, at least not by God, but possibly by the Satan, the serpent, the deceiver, the 'Dragon'. But Michael will have the best of him, for it is written.
