Global Governance vs World Government

Mediate.com link

Some of the aspects of global governance are described through media clips. Is this style of global governance just a precursor to the final world government of the Antichrist? I believe it is. The big wheels move slowly, so the preliminary changes will seem good, but will stink at its core. Let's look at what Scripture says.

1) In the last days, the Antichrist will be ruler over the entire globe:

“And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation.” Rev.13:7

2) The Antichrist will also be a popular ruler, worshiped for his awesome power:
“They worshiped the dragon for giving the beast such power, and they worshiped the beast. ‘Is there anyone as great as the beast?’ they exclaimed. ‘Who is able to fight against him?’” Rev. 13:4

3) The Antichrist will have total control over the purchase and sale of all goods:
“He required everyone – great and small, rich and poor, slave and free – to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.” Rev. 13:16-17 

The plan being presented now is for global governance, which seems to be slightly different than what the Antichrist will have...but it is on its way.
