From US President to Ruler of Planet Earth?

RNU.com – (Raiders News Update) - Raiders News Update was inundated yesterday after running a portion of WorldNetDaily Christian Libertarian commentator Vox Day's opinion piece on President Bush--The Devil's own?
As much as calling Bush an antichrist, Vox recalled biblical warnings of the end times false prophets:
"I realize that many Christians believe George Bush is a godly man, that he has been selected by a higher power for a special mission at a critical time in this country's history....
"But the vital question is to discover which god he serves – God, the Father of Jesus Christ, or the god that Jesus Christ described as the prince of this world.
"For it is written that many will be deceived, and it is impossible to argue against the fact that this president, like his father before him, is dedicated to expanding the size and scope of government, to sustaining and supporting the legitimacy of the United Nations, and to building a new world order on the ashes of American sovereignty....
"Now, after five years of a presidency that has conclusively proven George Bush is no conservative, I am beginning to wonder if his claims of sharing a faith with the Christians of America might not be dubious as well."
GEORGE BUSH THE ANTICHRIST?
Many people believe that, before long, a man will emerge on the world scene as a savior. His popularity, while confusing to many, will be widespread among religious folk. His profound ability to mislead the world will be the result of an invisible network of thousands of years of collective knowledge. He will, like the pharaohs of Egypt, represent the embodiment of a very old and super-intelligent spirit. Just as Jesus Christ was the "seed of the woman" (Gen. 3:15), he will be the "seed of the serpent." Although his arrival in the form of a man was foretold by numerous Scriptures, the broad masses of the church-world will not recognize him as paganism's ultimate incarnation, the "beast" of Revelation 13:1, not even when he, like the red-horse-rider of Revelation 6:4, "...takes peace from the earth..."
It's been assumed for centuries that prerequisites for such a man (Antichrist) will be a "revived" world order, an umbrella under which national boundaries dissolve, and ethnic groups, ideologies, religions, and economics from around the world orchestrate a single and dominant sovereignty. At the head of the utopian administration, this single personality will surface. At first he will appear to be a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become "a king of fierce countenance" (Dan. 8:23).
With support from religious authorities, his imperious decree will facilitate a one-world government, universal religion, and global socialism. Those who refuse his New World Order will inevitably be imprisoned or destroyed, until at last he exalts himself "above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God" (2 Thess. 2:4).
PAPA BUSH AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER
For many years the idea that an Orwellian society would actually come--where a one-world government oversees the smallest details of our lives and where human liberties are abandoned--was considered anathema. The concept that rugged individualism would be sacrificed for an anesthetized universal harmony was repudiated by America's greatest minds.
Then, in the 1970's, things began to change. Following a call by Nelson Rockefeller for the creation of a "New World Order," presidential candidate Jimmy Carter campaigned, saying, "We must replace balance of power politics with world order politics." Evidently he struck a chord with world leaders.
During the 1980's President George Bush Sr. picked up the one-world dirge, announcing over national television that "a New World Order" had arrived. Following the initial broadcast, Bush addressed the Congress and made the additional comment:
What is at stake is more than one small country [Kuwait], it is a big idea--a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind: peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law. Such is a world worthy of our struggle, and worthy of our children's future!
Ever since Papa Bush's astonishing newscast, a parade of political and religious leaders have discharged a profusion of rhetoric aimed at implementing the goals of the "The New World Order". In his book of the same name, one time presidential candidate Pat Robertson foresaw the strategy of the coming Antichrist played out in a particular way. Think of him what you will, my old pal Pat made a startling prediction. He said:
It is as if a giant plan is unfolding, everything perfectly on cue. Europe sets the date for its union. Communism collapses. A hugely popular war is fought in the Middle East. The United Nations is rescued from scorn by an easily swayed public. A new world order is announced. Christianity has been battered in the public arena, and New Age religions are in place in the schools and corporations, and among the elite. Then a financial collapse accelerates the move toward a world money system.
According to Pat, the final step to placing Antichrist at the world's helm will be brought on by the collapse of the global monetary system, or the dollar. News I'm reading says we're just about there. Many, many articles covering this are freely available online, such as Devvy Kidd's two-part NWV editorials here and here.
So... who will be enthroned as President of Planet Earth in the very near future? A United Nations leader? Lord Maitreia? A resurrected John F. Kennedy? George W. Bush?
Frankly, I don't know, and with all respect to G.W., he doesn't appear smart enough to me. Yet it does seem you can smell the fires of ancient prophecy burning on the White House lawn, doesn't it?
Either way, an ancient scheme is unfolding. At the core of the conspiracy a leader of indescribable brutality is scheduled to appear. Before he's done, he'll make the combined depravities of Antiochus Epiphenes, Hitler, Stalin, Genghis Khan, and all other types of the antichrist look like child's play.
In the near future the true children of God may find hope here:
"The mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders (2 Thess. 2:7-9)."
