The Coming One-World System

A look at what Scripture says about the coming one-world government


When will the global society be ushered in, and who will be in charge? This issue tackles that question and reveals how a “new world order” fits with the end-times picture described in Scripture. From plans for the ancient Tower of Babel and a God-free union of nations, an economic utopia, and an attempted man-made stairway to heaven to the introduction of the new version of the Shinar dream, it’s all here.
