One-World Religion

PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE: The Bible clearly teaches that there will be some kind of universal religion that will use its influence to enable the Beast, a world military and economic dictator, to rise to power.

There are already religious movements working toward the goal of a "United Religions," modeled after the United Nations. Once born-again Christians have been taken up to meet Christ in the Rapture, what is left of Christianity will be willing to cooperate with other religions in the name of peace.

According to the prophecy in Revelation about the "Mark of the Beast," all people will be required to worship the Beast in order to receive permission to buy or sell. His world religious movement will be led by the False Prophet of Revelation 13. It's influence will be symbolized by the spiritually adulterous woman who rides the Beast in Revelation 17.
