Who is able to make war with him?" Revelation 13:1,4.
Given the context of Revelation 13 we understand that the beast rising up out of the sea is that final world empire. We know this is an empire because of the consistency in the symbolism between Revelation 13 and Daniel 7-8, which portrays these beast (chimeras) as representing actual kingdoms.

But how many people do you know today who actually worship government? Aside from North Korea who mandate the worship of the ruling Kim, governmental worship doesn't really exist anywhere else in the world at the moment. We know they are really worshipping Satan, because Revelation 12 confirms the identity of the dragon as Satan.
