The following timeline is taken from Steve Magill’s book, Revelation and the Age of Antichrist.
I. Apostasy of the Church
The “church” has reached its peak of departure from the teachings of Christ where most claiming the name of Christ do not know Christ. This apostasy is the welcome mat inviting the Antichrist and his fallen angels to enter the earth with open arms.
II. Rise of Islam
Islam’s role is to assimilate Great Britain, the United States, Russia, and the Middle East to Islam. Presently they do this through terrorism, fear, and immigration. Once Islam is assimilated into the nations, the realignment of all nations into a New World Order of ten economic regions will then take place.

exert his will.
