The theological foundation for resisting centralized government begins with the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11. Every time a decision is moved away from the local to the state, the state to the national, the national to the International is another block in the New Babel (Babylon the Great).
For evangelicals who fear the Anti-Christ, they better start resisting globalization now. To the degree Evangelicals condone the centralization of power away from the people is the degree to which they assist in building the foundation for an Anti-Christ government.
Nimrod is the archetype of the Anti-Christ global government. He built Babel. This is he who was, and is not, and is to come.
Scripture demands we resist the new Babel: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4
