According to an article in Townhall.com, entitled, Obama’s Move to Surrender Control of the Internet Endangers Freedom Here and Abroad,
On March 14th, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), a component of the U.S. Commerce Department, announced a plan to begin transitioning “key Internet domain name functions to the global multistakeholder [sic] community.” In doing this, the United States would surrender ultimate control of what keeps the Internet free and accessible to virtually anyone, anyplace, anytime, to an unelected, uncontrollable “global community.” That “community” of wolves includes, among others, the likes of Russia, with its military already occupying a large portion of a neighboring country; Turkey, which is currently blocking its citizens from communicating on Twitter; and China, with its government-control of social media as tight as anywhere on the planet.

So what is going on? Who is this group that will supposedly take over the internet? How will it happen? What are the fears? And how does this suggest the rise of the antichrist?
Who will take over the internet?
“What is the global Internet community that Obama wants to turn the Internet over to?” tweeted former House speaker Newt Gingrich.
The short answer is: no one knows. But they are termed “a global body,” or a “global multistakeholder [sic] community.” Most likely it will be a part of the United Nations.
What will be the process of the takeover?
According to a recent article in Newsweek entitled, Obama Wants a Global Community to Run the Internet, but It Could End Up in the Hands of China. Or Putin,
A process to define a new approach to Internet governance was launched at a March conference in Singapore. Another gathering will be hosted in late April by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff in São Paolo. There, organizers hope, global “stakeholders” will form a body capable of taking over the functions currently performed by the U.S. government. There will be other conferences, including one next September in Turkey, whose prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, just tried to muzzle Twitter in his country. View Article.

What are the fears of this takeover?
There are many fears. The first is that we may lose our individual liberties. Dictators may restrict what we can see or what we can post. But I think a greater fear is what it suggests is happening in the world—global control and the rise of the antichrist.
How does the internet takeover suggest the rise of the antichrist?
There will come a time, soon, when the whole world, in desperation, will seek someone, one man, to be the savior of the world—to bring a solution to world-wide chaos. The closer the world gets to global organization and control, the easier it will be for that one man to take control. So when we see conferences and groups desiring to bring the world together in unity, to restrict personal freedom for the declared purpose of the common good, this to me seems to be an indication that the end in near. So lift up your heads Christian, Christ is coming for you. And then, soon after the Christians are raptured, the antichrist will come.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1 John 2:18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have arisen; from this we know that it is the last hour.
