The bible speaks of a one world religion during the Tribulation – one that we can see forming today.
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. Rev. 13:11-12
This second beast from the earth is the False Prophet whom causes the worship of the first beast. The False Prophet will most likely be one of the leaders of the latter day Babylon system that we can also see forming today.
And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Rev. 17:4-5
This apostate religion will have a final push since its beginning in the days of Nimrod and the tower of Babel. Just as Nimrod wanted to replace God and be worshiped, the religions that fall under the future Babylonian system all have one thing in common – replacement theology / supersessionism. That is to say that the church has replaced Israel as God’s people and that God does not have any specific future plans for the Jewish people.
These religious groups include Eastern Orthodoxy, Islam, some Protestant groups, and the Catholic church based in Rome. Islam is not considered part of the church, but it believes they are the chosen people of God beginning with Ishmael, son of Abraham.

The bible calls the Tribulation period the time of Jacob’s trouble. “Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. Jer 30:7.
Jacob’s name was later changed by God to Israel. The Tribulation period is all about the people of Israel and if you subscribe to the church going through the Tribulation, then you are subscribing to replacement theology / supersessionism.
And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. Gen 35:10
