Jesus warned that the times of the antichrist will be by far worst the world has ever known, in his discourse to the disciples regarding "The tribulation of those days" as recorded in Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21 and John 16.
He foretold of a period of false messiahs, rumors of wars, sorrow, betrayal, deceit, iniquity, persecution and catastrophe.
The end times would bring such conditions, so terrible that "Unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved." Matthew 24:22
Who is this Antichrist, the false man of peace?
The Antichrist will be a man who makes his debut upon the stage of world history with hypnotic charm and charisma.
He will probably come from the European union or a country or confederation that was once apart of the Roman empire.
That empire stretched from Ireland to Egypt and included Turkey, Iran and Iraq.
In Daniel's' vision " Little horn" sprouted from among the other ten which we know are some how ten divisions of the old Roman empire.
In his rise to power, the antichrist will weave his hypnotic spell.
• First over one nation in the ten kingdom federation
• and then over all ten.
He will conquer three of the ten nations and then will assume primacy over all of them.
Next, he will turn his eye toward Israel.
The antichrist will be "a man who has paid his dues" in the military and political sense and many will willingly follow him.
He will rule over those in his federation with absolute authority and will do as he pleases, quote Daniel 11:36.

He will defeat and merge three kingdoms.
Have you ever thought they could be Surbia, Bosnia and Croatia?
Certainly that would be a modern day miracle.
Daniel 8:25 says "that by peace he shall destroy many".
He will guarantee peace for Israel in the Middle East and sign a seven year peace treaty but will break that seven year treaty in only three and half years.
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate."
I John 2:18 boldly declares
18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.
Thought many people throughout the years have been antichrist, there is coming a man who is the devil incarnate, the son of Satan, evil personified and he will have a
three point plan of world domination.
It is as follows:

2. A one world government
