“See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.” (Matthew 24:4-8)
Birth pangs! Not a phrase you hear much these days but one suggestive of the signs of the End of the Age in that the return of Christ will mirror a birthing process. The pains that come with this labor will increase in frequency and intensity until the time of birth. What we witness today are those very birth pangs.
ONE WORLD CURRENCY ON THE WAY – In the Book of Revelation, Jesus draws a picture for us of the geopolitical structure that will be in place during the Tribulation. The Globalist Cabal, working under the authority of Satan, will impose on the world a governing system that will include a One World Government, a One World Currency – and all this supported by a One World Religion. [We can keep this in mind, as we view the unfolding events of the day. ‘They’ are always working toward these ends.] And right now, the forces that are moving us toward a One World Currency are doing so both quickly and openly. First of all it is important to know exactly who those forces are. Brandon Smith of Alt Market defines it nicely. “First and foremost, the Federal Reserve and the dollar are merely a franchise of a larger system; they are but one tentacle writhing from the body of the globalist vampire squid. In the pyramid of banking power, the Fed is an errand boy, a workhorse, that is all. At the top if the pyramid sits the major global institutions which control policy, including the IMF, the BIS, World Bank and the UN.”[i] [IMF = International Monetary Fund, BIS = Bank of International Settlements.] Both the IMF and the World Bank are controlled by the contributing governments according to the amount they do so. The US with its closest allies effectively runs those organizations.[ii] So that means what we now call the ‘Deep State.’ The BIS is run by the heads of the world’s central banks like the Fed, the Bank of England, Bank of China and the European Central Bank. And it is the Central Banks that make national governments dance to their tune. Zero Hedge defines their power well. “When it comes to the historic record, nothing comes closer to the stereotypical, secretive group determining the fate of over 7 billion people, than the Bank of International Settlements, which hides in such plain sight, that few have ever paid much attention.”[iii]
Understanding who ‘THEY’ are is important, but it is more important to understand what ‘THEY’ are up to. And what ‘THEY’ are up to is GLOBAL GOVERNANCE! And the vehicle to get there is the collapse of the dollar. While some deny it – and say that the globalists need the dollar to achieve their ends – that is simply not true. At one time the British Pound Sterling was the world’s reserve currency. But starting in the late 1930’s, the PTB moved away from that and toward the dollar which was enshrined at Bretton Woods near the end of WWII. The current movement is just the next step in sliding the world toward total financial control. And control of the world’s finances is one of the foundations of total political control. Brandon Smith: “But before global governance can be instilled as a necessity in the public psyche and the banking elites established as the benevolent rulers of the planet, several things must be accomplished. One of the first steps to global government would be global economic management and a single world currency. After this is achieved, global government would become much easier to sell to the public…. The argument over whether or not the dollar can be sunk is, in the end, pointless, because the decision has already been made. The ultimate goal of the globalists is openly admitted…. The Rothschild owned magazine The Economist outlined the plan for a one world currency system 30 years ago in 1988.”
The plan is to go to SDRs or Special Drawing Rights. “This plan describes a shift starting in 2018, in which the US economy will be diminished to make way for a new system, rooted in the IMF’s SDR basket. The article mentions that the SDR will not be the world currency, but a ‘bridge’ to the world currency.” Right now, the IMF is promoting the creation of a “new digital currency system that would be based on blockchain technology.”[iv] That’s the technology used by the crypto currencies. That move toward digital currency is gaining momentum. Mohammed El-Erian from Allianz is pushing SDRs as the foundation for a world currency. Jose Antonio Ocampo, a former Under Secretary of the UN wrote an “essay calling for the IMF to fully fund itself using the SDR, and then issue the SDR as a global currency mechanism.” The globe’s central banks are openly calling for the end of dollar dominance.
The dollar’s days are numbered. We’ve been hanging on to our lifestyle and seeming economic dominance through the petro-dollar, the system set up by Kissinger and the Saudis that has all the world buying oil with American currency. But in recent years that once-monolithic edifice has begun to crack. And now the Saudis have openly advanced the idea of dumping the dollar. As Smith puts it: “The Saudi ‘Vision for 2030’ requires dedollarization in order to be completed. And, guess who supplies the funding for the Saudi Vision For 2030 program? Globalist corporations like Goldman Sachs and the Carlyle Group.”[v] The fix would seem to be in and the dollar out. The eventual plan is to move toward a One World Digital Currency, though there may be side stops along the way. Harvard Politics reports that the Saudis and the Chinese have been discussing the setup of a ‘petro-yuan’ to take the place of the Yankee Dollar.[vi] Either way, any really effective move toward world government requires the tearing down of American dominance. And the digital currency could certainly be the perfect fulfillment of biblical prophecy.
Here are the words of Revelation 13:16-17. “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
FOOD: SHORTAGES WILL LEAD TO RISING PRICES – In the sixth chapter of the Book of Revelation we have this curious passage. “When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, ‘Come and see.’ So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.’” (Revelation 6:5-6) A denarius was about a day’s wage for some laborers. This passage would seem to indicate that it will take a day’s wage just to buy food for one person. Or one could settle for barley and pay for a family of three. We are not yet in the Tribulation and the US is certainly not there yet, but food prices are about to go up significantly. The massive flooding in the Midwest, the breadbasket of America, the loss of livestock there, the California fires and the border issues are all contributing to what many experts believe will be a significant downturn in food production this year. The NOAA is warning that flooding will persist in some areas into July. The ‘snow bomb’ hitting the plains states will not help things. Pork prices have already shot up significantly. Expect other meats and grains to follow.[vii]
The website Strange Sounds puts this in perspective. “At this moment, millions of acres of farmland are already underwater. Thousands of farmers are not going to be able to plant crops this year, and thousands of other farmers that have been financially ruined by the floods will never return to farming again. This is already the worst agricultural disaster in modern American history, and it is going to get a whole lot worse.
- Millions of bushels of wheat, corn and soybeans have been destroyed by flood waters
- Hundreds of millions of dollars worth of livestock have been lost, and all of us will soon be feeling a lot more pain at the grocery store….
Of all the natural disasters that we have seen in recent years, this is the biggest, and U.S. food production is going to be dramatically affected because many farmers will not be able to grow crops at all in 2019.”[viii]
I was aware of this issue – and touched on it in the past. But the point was driven home by the manager of a grocery store that I frequent. She told us that she was already seeing shortages in some deliveries of vegetables and she expected it to get considerably worse. So I can only urge you to take stock and prayerfully consider how you should prepare.
DHS & FEMA: ‘GET READY’ – Anticipating the possibility of a grid down scenario, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency are telling folks to be ready to live without power….for six months.[ix] This comes amid warnings that our enemies are increasing their EMP weapons capabilities. An Electro Magnetic Pulse weapon could shut down the entire power grid for an undetermined length of time. Hospitals, food distribution, fuel supplies, transportation and more would all be affected. Such a scenario would send us back to the technological level of the early 19th century – only without the skills or infrastructure enjoyed by the population that lived at that time. It is estimated that tens even hundreds of millions could die from the ensuing effects.
