) Mormons believe they are descendents of Israel and are of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
I can see where a Mormon world leader could desire to enter the Jewish temple as a Mormon high priest so he could announce to himself and everyone else that he has become God.
Some Christians were pretty certain that he would be the Antichrist.
Today with the rising threat of Islam, the increasingly popular place for the Antichrist to arise is from Islam in the role of the Shiite Mahdi or 12th Imam.
Therefore, since the Islam Antichrist theory will not fly here, I think we might want to consider that the Antichrist will be of some other religion.
Revelation 17 says that the ten kings that give their power to the Beast will hate the woman that rides the Beast and burn her with fire (the woman is the ecumenical pseudo Christian world Church).
Will Mormons and other New Age and eastern pagans form a counter revolution and unite in hate against the world harlot of Revelation 17 and burn her with fire as scripture says (Rev )?
Therefore, at some point it only stands to reason that some Mormon will think that he has achieved godhood.
(If your a Mormon and have become leader of the world, what is left other than declaring your godhood?
