Notice the date on this article that was carried by USAToday.
At least 2 years ago, a religious authority with world-wide recognition called for an interesting kind of global change. It was a call for the kind of change that only the Bible could have foreseen. Are you ready ? Were you sleeping ? Let's take a look at what some of us are noticing in the news and pay special attention to the date here too.
Recently it has been mentioned to me that the Vatican is calling for a new global economic order. I grieve for our slumbering people. My thoughts are regarding those of us who are just now noticing what has been happening in our world. I question in my mind, "Where have you been for the past several years ?" The Pope/Vatican has made this call several times before. Are you just now awaking from sleep ? May the Lord awaken us from this deathlike stupor.
According to the Bible, there is coming a time when human beings, regardless of class, color or gender, will be forced to choose between participating in a controlled economic system that has specific worship requirements or choose to trust in God and respect His specific worship requirements.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16,17)
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: (Revelation 14:9,10)
Which power do you think is represented by the beast with 7 heads, 10 horns and 10 crowns in Revelation 13:1-8 ? We will explore that in future articles. You have some clues in this article. In previous posts to this site, we have discovered that the United States is the power represented by the beast with two horns like a lamb in Revelation 13:11.
Some poor misguided souls are looking for the U.S. government and Federal Reserve to do something, perhaps another round of stimulus or a QE3 as they call it. It's not here and some still strongly believe that it's coming. I've had some people get a bit angry and even mock me for going contrary to the popular opinion about it and saying that there will be no QE3. Why the anger ? Maybe because they believe they understand how things work and they think that I don't. Many don't realize or believe that what we are seeing is the unfolding of final events.
The fluctuating prices of gold and silver are not really the issue. Neither Greece's defaulting economy nor the Euro are the true causes of the world economic crisis. Since, Bible prophecy points to the U.S. as leading the world into the final sequence of events leading to the return of Jesus Christ, it is the American form of currency, the dollar, that should be watched for signs of deterioration towards the coming new system of oppression. Hyperinflation (excessive money printing and price increase) or deflation (continual decrease in the prices of goods and services) or even both along with the steady erosion of the principles in the U.S. constitution will help to achieve this.
Yet, there are other influences at work even more powerful than the U.S. Federal Reserve, the global bankers and IMF all of which are lending institutions. Hence, there will soon be many more bank failures preparing the way for change. The fact of the matter is that there is a NEW ECONOMIC/RELIGIOUS/POLITICAL SYSTEM scheduled for arrival on planet earth in the near future. It is the last one mentioned in the last book of the Bible. No nation will escape the purging of old economic systems. Not even China will be exempt from the "extreme economic makeover.".

Libya was not economically stressed so what happened ? Never underestimate the power of the U.S. media to deceive. Libya had 3 strikes against it which called for it's downfall.
(see below for the video information about Libya that the U.S. media is not sharing)
#1 - Libya's now deceased leader, Gaddafi, was attempting to be independent of the world system which is currently manipulated and oppressed in large measure by the beast described in Revelation 13:11.
#2 - Libya's former leader had firmly held religious beliefs that were directly opposed to the religion of the beast of Revelation 13:1-8.
#3 - Libya's final offense against these two world "powers that be" was in seeking independence from the corrupt global financial system by returning to the use of gold as money. This offense was not to be tolerated by the powers that be because the new system which will be based on completely different principles is almost here and wealth or the lack thereof will not help anyone. Read that Bible verse again
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16,17)
Those who believe that silver and gold will save you take heed to the warning. Jesus is the only One who can save you or me.
If you are considering starting a family right now, it may not be the wisest plan to do so at this time. Consider the words of Jesus Christ Himself which is recorded by 3 different disciples under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days ! (Matthew 24:19)
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. (Luke 21:23)
But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days ! (Mark 13:17)
If Jesus speaking through Bible verses doesn't appeal to our reasoning abilities, maybe some other truth will. Try the link below as a starting point.
30 Signs That America Has Become A Horrible Place For Children - http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/30-signs-that-america-has-become-a-horrible-place-for-children
It is only by the grace of God that any of us are awake to the situation. However, it is interesting to note that in His parable of the ten virgins, Jesus spoke of all 10 virgins, both the foolish and the wise, as being asleep. The difference is that the wise had oil in their lamps and were prepared for the hour of need; the time when the bridegroom arrived. Tough times are directly ahead and the work for the salvation of souls is almost ended. Many of even God's truly converted people, the wise virgins, have to a large degree been asleep with regard to this work. What will you do for Christ, in Christ and by the grace of God in these last days ? Would you like to know how America will work for the beast of Revelation 13:1-8 ? Look for more details in the soon coming articles and posts.
If you have not done so already or if you have backslidden toward the world and are now worldly...please in the name of Jesus awake and stay alert if you are awake.
Please...surrender your heart to God while there is still time; surrender your thoughts and feelings to Jesus Christ the one who loves you and died in order for you and I to be able to obtain victory over all sin and selfishness in our lives...God loves you..God wants you...Not just to be forgiven...Not to play church, but to truly become Christ-like before you die so that you can be prepared to enjoy eternity with Him. A Christlike person is the only kind of person that could enjoy heaven and the only kind of person that could be trusted in heaven.
Pray like this - Father in heaven, I am a sinner and I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins. I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior right now and I ask you to give me a new heart. New motives, new desires and new purposes that will be in harmony with your law of 10 commandments. I thank you and praise you for the forgiveness of my sins and for causing me to be born again right now, In Jesus, name, amen.
