Prophetic scripture informs us that the world will be divided into ten spheres of influence as we approach the end times (Revelation 17:12). These ten realms will be ruled by ten kings who will wield great power over the whole earth. Then, midway through the period we call the Tribulation, the ten kings will turn their power over to the Antichrist who will establish his short-lived world government.

The question we need to ask ourselves is, ‘By what mechanism will the ten kings be able to achieve this power?’ As we are quickly approaching the end times, we are now close to answering this question.

A little scriptural exegesis should help us to adequately understand some of the details of the rise to power of the ten kings.

We are first introduced to the ten kings in the Book of Daniel when he was called upon to interpret Nebuchadnezzar’s dream.

“You saw, O king, and behold, a great image. This image, mighty and of exceeding brightness, stood before you, and its appearance was frightening. The head of this image was of fine gold [Babylon], its chest and arms of silver [Medo-Persia], its middle and thighs of bronze [Greece], its legs of iron [Rome], its feet partly of iron and partly of clay [representing a final world empire of the end times]. As you looked, a stone [Christ] was cut out by no human hand [by God], and it struck the image on its feet of iron and clay [it destroyed the final world empire] and broke them in pieces.

“Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, all together were broken in pieces, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that not a trace of them could be found [all remnants of past world empires will be swept away]. But the stone [Christ] that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth [the Millennial Kingdom of Christ]” (Daniel 2:31-35).

We are given greater detail about the coming ten kings as Daniel continues to interpret this prophetic dream.

“And there shall be a fourth kingdom [Rome], strong as iron, because iron breaks to pieces and shatters all things. And like iron that crushes, it shall break and crush all these [all other world kingdoms in history]. And as you saw the feet and [ten] toes [which are an extension of the old Roman Empire into the end times], partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron [much weaker than the original Roman Empire], it shall be a divided [into ten realms] kingdom, but some of the firmness of iron shall be in it, just as you saw iron mixed with the soft clay. And as the [ten] toes [who represent the ten kings of the end times] of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle [it will need a powerful figure to hold it together].

“As you saw the iron mixed with soft clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage [ten spheres of influence], but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of those [ten] kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom [the Millennial Kingdom] that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces [with a rod of iron] all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever” (Daniel 2:40-44).

According to the prophet Daniel, the final world empire of the end times will not be very strong and will be in danger of falling apart. It will be an extension of the old Roman Empire, but it will encompass the entire world. Despite the incredible advances in technology, this empire will still be difficult to maintain and in constant danger of fracturing.

Jesus provided a clue as to why this would be the case. Jesus said that we will hear of wars and rumors of wars as nation rises against nation and kingdom against kingdom. This, along with earthquakes and famines, will likely inhibit the ability of the ten kings to stabilize their empire. They are going to need a strong figure who can hold their brittle kingdom together.

The figure they will choose to serve this purpose will be the Antichrist.

Currently, the evil globalists are trying to create anarchy not only in the economy but socially as well. They are breaking down our supply chains for goods while at the same time trying to destroy the family unit. In their arrogance and stupidity, they think that they can create anarchy worldwide until the people of the earth beg them to restore order. However, the tyrannical system that they intend to create to serve their own needs will not sit well with the bulk of the world’s population.

The next time we are introduced to the ten kings is in the book of Revelation. John writes:

“And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon [Satan], with seven heads [which represents the previous seven world empires] and ten horns [kings], and on his heads seven diadems. His tail swept down a third of the stars [fallen angels] of heaven and cast them to the earth…” (Revelation 12:3-4).

It is not a surprise that Satan wears the ten kings like a crown on his head. The people that Satan will wear as a crown are the same people who today inform humanity that they are going to create a wonderful utopia for the rest of us. All we must do is turn our freedom over to them, and we will be taken care of from cradle to grave.

If you trust the globalists, you are a fool.

The ten kings will be in league with the great prostitute, which is the church of Rome. If anyone still thinks the papacy is comprised of men of God, then you are in for a big surprise. Those who allow themselves to be deluded by these people are going to suffer terribly at their hands. They are also likely to share the same wretched eternity.

The papacy and the ten kings will use each other to rise to power, but this satanic arrangement will not last. The kings will have to submit to the Church of Rome for a while in order to take advantage of their religious authority. However, they will be anxious to dispose of them when the papacy has outlived its usefulness.

John the Revelator points out that the woman rides the beast, which means that she controls the newly appointed Antichrist for a brief period. This lasts 3 ½ years after the Antichrist is chosen by the ten kings. He will have to cater to the papacy until he can rid himself of this nuisance at the midway point of the Tribulation.

The ten kings will secure control of the world after the rapture. However, they will discover that it is impossible to build any kind of workable system, even a totalitarian system, once anarchy is the norm. They will then seek a strong man who can hold their weak kingdom together. When Jesus opens the first seal of judgment, that will signify that they found him.

“And I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him [by the ten kings], and he came out conquering, and to conquer” (Revelation 6:2).

As stated previously, Jesus informed the people of this time that they would hear of wars and rumors of wars. Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom as the economic, legal and familial system in each nation is completely broken down. This is likely due to Jesus opening next seal of judgment.

“When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, ‘Come!’ And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword” (Revelation 6:3-5).

One of the angels who carried out the bowl judgments tells John the Revelator that he will show him the judgment of the great prostitute. The great prostitute is Vatican City which, at that time, will be the great city that has dominion over the [ten] kings of the earth (Revelation 17:18).

“And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power [but will in the end times], but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour [a brief period], together with the beast [the Antichrist]. These are of one mind, and they hand over their power and authority to the beast [Antichrist will be dictator over the whole world and proclaim himself to be God (II Thessalonians 2:3-10)]. They will make war on the Lamb [against Christ at Armageddon], and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful” (Revelation 17:12-14).

“And the ten horns [ten kings] that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute [the Church of Rome]. They will make her desolate [powerless] and naked [humiliated], and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire [God will deliver her into the hands of her lovers], for God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and handing over their royal power to the beast [the kings will all bow to the Antichrist, and he will hold all royal power], until the words of God are fulfilled” (Revelation 17:16-17).

Now that we have an overview of the ten kings and their ambitions, let us look at some of the specifics of how our overlords are going to rise to power. Since we are close to the end times, we can now begin to surmise the mechanisms that the ten kings will use to gain control of the world system.

Our globalist masters are driven primarily by greed and lust for power. Despite the flowery language they use to describe their intent, it is clear that they have no interest in what will benefit the people they intend to control. In fact, they seem to despise those of us who do not share their vision for humanity.

It is somewhat understandable why the evil globalists have little respect for the people of the world. The heathen of the end times are described in Romans 1:28-32 as absolutely awful human beings. (Unfortunately, the professing ‘Christians’ will not be much better, as they are described in II Timothy 3:1-5 in very unflattering terms.) Even while the people of the world are under the severe judgment of God, they will refuse to repent of their idolatry, demon worship, murders, sorceries, sexual immorality, and thefts (Revelation 9:20-21).

We can see now that their first order of business for the globalists is to get a Godless and faithless world to buy into whatever silly narrative they wish to create. It will be much easier to enslave a population if they are willing to turn their freedom and livelihoods over to the elites of their own volition. However, once they have enough fools to join them, they will no longer need to try to keep up the appearance of actually caring about the public.

We can now make an educated guess that the narrative that they have settled on is the myth of climate change. The ridiculous notion of manmade global warming is so silly that there is no sense in providing any more evidence that it is a hoax. Those who believe in it are deluded by God himself, and no amount of evidence is going to convince them otherwise.

What is even more nefarious about this agenda is that climate change is a never-ending crisis. The crisis continues until every penny is drained from our wallets and we have been completely enslaved.

Since climate change is pure fantasy, it takes a great deal of money to prop up something that does not exist in reality. Reality is set by God, and his mandate to us is to be fruitful and subdue the earth. The seventeen goals (see my article Mystery Babylon, Part II), which seek to undo God’s mandate, are so unrealistic that they will never be achieved, even if they were legitimate. The globalists intend to create mounds of cash ex nihilo to help them try to solve a problem that they made up ex nihilo. They will use this limitless amount of money to solve, not the climate crisis, but the annoying problem of freedom that inhabits the souls of the world.

If that is not Satanic, nothing is.

However, the evil globalists have found a way around the minor problem of coming up with the cash to take away our freedom. They created a monetary philosophy called ‘Modern Monetary Theory,’ which allows them to print as much money as they want. This new theory is based on the old idea that when you cannot pay for your worthless government programs, you simply print money until your currency becomes worthless.

It seems that this process is going to continue until after the rapture and the world is plunged into poverty. When Jesus opens the third seal, we find:

“When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, ‘Come!’ And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine’” (Revelation 6:5-6).

So, what do those who fancy themselves the kings of the earth have in store for us prior to the rapture?

We begin with the Great Reset, which is a program created by the global elite to build a totalitarian world government. They did not bother to ask us if this is what we wanted because they really do not care what we want. They simply announced it and then proceeded to use their great wealth, and the money they print willy-nilly to implement it.

The cronies who will help them implement it will be paid with the trillions of dollars they print out of thin air. Apparently, they will be able to keep doing this until Jesus opens the third seal. Amazingly, they already have most of the business world behind them because the spiritual condition of these people is abominable. Using the business world has the added advantage of allowing governments to bypass any civil rights violations that will be necessary to see this through.

As we know, the Pope really loves the poor, not because he wants to help them but because they are easy to control. We also know that money printing creates poverty, and the globalists will work with the Vatican to financially enslave the various populations of the world. Once the people are impoverished, it will be difficult for them to resist the agenda of the evil globalists.

The system is already in place with Godless and evil organizations such as the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the United Nations to usher in their new world order. These organizations do not represent the citizens of the world but rather are bought and paid for by the globalists.

The WEF has already complained that they are getting bad press and have put out a demand that this comes to a stop. There is no doubt that our corrupt press Corp will dutifully comply. Whenever powerful people tell us that we cannot talk about something, you can bet good money that they are suppressing the truth.

The WEF has launched a ‘global coalition’ to clean up that ‘harmful online content’ that seems to be growing against them. The gall of these people is astounding. Despite their incompetence, they are able to convince themselves that they are the elite and we are the rubes. They are no different than Pope Nicholas I who declared the following in 860 A.D.:

“People are not the judges of their princes; they should obey without murmuring the most iniquitous orders; they should bow their foreheads under the chastisements which it pleases kings to inflict on them, for a sovereign can violate the fundamental laws of the State, and seize upon the wealth of the citizen, by imposts or by confiscations; he can even dispose of their lives, without any of his subjects having the right to address to him simple remonstrances.”

The Flu Bug Hysteria that began in late 2019 showed the globalists that the world was ripe for their takeover. The fact that the vast majority of people in the world were so faithless – that they were willing to throw away their freedom and their livelihoods – taught them everything they needed to know about the spiritual condition of the world population. Even though this ‘pandemic’ was mild with a 98% recovery rate, many people continue to wear masks in obedience to the new world order.

Much of the world has already been sold on the ridiculous idea of ‘Renewable or Green Energy.’ This is unreliable energy that is reserved for the general public, not the elites. Its purpose is not to help the environment but rather to further impoverish the people that the globalists wish to enslave.

Emmanuel Macron recently informed the French people that the “Era of Abundance” is coming to an end. This is an amazing proclamation from a politician. No doubt a majority of the faithless French will line up to vote for him again because he is just so smart. Interestingly, this is the type of proclamation we can expect from the future kings of the earth. Maybe he is preparing himself for that office.

By the way, he did not mean the age of abundance is coming to an end for him but that it is coming to an end for the rest of us.

The entire economic system is now being changed from one that serves the needs of the public to one that serves the sordid desires of the globalists. Our markets have been altered by the idea of ‘Stakeholder Capitalism’ in which companies have changed their emphasis. Corporations no longer cater to the customer but to the global elite. People will no longer be offered products that they want but what the elites think that they deserve.

The merchants of the earth will soon be trafficking all kinds of goods, but their most disturbing commodity will be the bodies and souls of men. Apparently, these people are not ‘stakeholders’ in the new economy.

Almost all businesses are being subjected to the new mandates of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG). These new metrics will allow our overlords to determine which businesses are allowed to operate. Those businesses that empower the elites and punish the masses will be the only ones to continue.

Even now, the governments of the world are trying to reach their final goal that was revealed to us by God. That is the creation of a Global Digital Currency. This will become the final reserve currency that will eventually replace the dollar. Once this is in place, probably by mid-tribulation, a great religious figure who heralds the Antichrist will have reached his goal.

“Also it [the false prophet] causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked [like the cattle they are] on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name” (Revelation 13:16-17).

So, we should not be disturbed by the mild birth pangs that we are experiencing at this time. We know how this ends, and the summation of God’s plan is wonderful for those who patiently endure and stand firm in the faith.

Always remember this is God’s battle, not ours.
