The cost of the damage (mental and emotional) goes far beyond dollars but will certainly add to the economic depression already well underway in the United States. That's right...it is not a recession, it's an economic depression.(3) The value of the U.S. paper dollar currency is fading fast.(4) Corporations like JP Morgan have already begun to allow gold to be used as collateral in some transactions.(5) Indeed, Utah has passed a law making gold and silver coins legal tender.(6)
Is it a coincidence that a European Parliamentary panel has approved the use of gold as a collateral ? (7) Is it a coincidence that central banks are buying gold to reduce their reliance on the dollar ? (8) Is it a coincidence that Libya has tons of gold and a "humanitarian" mission is said to be why it has been attacked by NATO and the United States. Maybe it is all just a coincidence. But if by chance these are not coincidences and the dollar is scheduled to lose significant value in the very near future, you may want to understand what happens when a currency's value is decreased. Take a look at the country of Belarus where the national bank decreased the value of the nation's currency 56%.(9) Click on the link or do a Google search yourself.
Why is it that so many people are seemingly in a state of denial or unbelief about the true social, economic and moral state of America even when they have evidence before their eyes that they are not being told the truth by their leaders ? It is because so many of us have been conditioned to not trust God or His word but to rely upon man and his words. Even though men have been lying to Americans about so many things (see a few examples in the videos below), the word of man is still exalted above the word of God. As a result, many people have no relish for real truth or any desire to be awakened out of sleep. They are out of touch with God's reality and are living in the manufactured reality of this world and its ruler. In short, many are deceived by the lies which are constantly fed to them through the media, their associates and by the lies they have been telling themselves. If you or someone you know is still sincerely misled and thinks the economy is recovering please take a quick look at these links - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/20-questions-to-ask-anyone-foolish-enough-to-believe-the-economic-crisis-is-over and here - http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/36-statistics-which-prove-that-the-american-dream-is-turning-into-an-absolute-nightmare-for-the-middle-class
In the book of Revelation a controlled economic system is brought to view as the power of religious tyranny rises to rule over all nations, kindreds, tongues and peoples. Buying and selling will be regulated by a religious authority during a time of great global stress and calamity..
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)
According to Bible prophecy which we have studied and discovered so far in the previous posts to this blog, America is the nation identified by Revelation 13:11 as the beast with two horns like a lamb.
Note the strange words that follow in the remainder of the verse.
AND HE SPAKE AS A DRAGON
The prophecy teaches that a change in America's character from lamb-like to dragon will be revealed by the manner of speech. Nations make laws and in Romans 3:19 we learn that laws speak.The Bible explains who the dragon is and how he speaks. In order to continue learning what America will do in the last days just before Christ returns again, we need to continue in this post taking a closer look at this dragon.
(And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, andhis angels were cast out with him. (Revelation 12:9)
So according to the Bible, the dragon is that old serpent, the devil, Satan. The United States will speak like a dragon, specifically the dragon of the Bible whose voice will be heard and manifested in three different ways - that old serpent, the devil and Satan.
So how does that old serpent speak ?
The serpent questions and contradicts God's word
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden ?
Genesis 3:1-4 - And the serpent said unto the woman,Ye shall not surely die:
How does the devil speak ?
Jesus said that the devil lies
John 8:44 - When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of hisown:
for he is a liar, and the father of it.
How does Satan speak ?
Satan calls for or inspires action against those whom God loves and who love God.
Job 1:8-11 - But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.
According to Bible prophecy then, IT IS PREDICTED THAT THE UNITED STATES WILL LIE,
CONTRADICT GOD'S WORD AND CALL FOR AND INSPIRE ACTION AGAINST ANYONE WHO REFUSES TO ???
Would you like to know more about who will hear the voice of the dragon in America ? We will study this in our next post.
There are many people who are so caught up in this world that they literally hope that Jesus Christ is NOT coming back anytime soon. They are counting on being dead and in the grave by the time the book of Revelation starts being fulfilled.
This is a dangerous self-deception that leaves anyone who embraces it totally unprepared to recognize the connection between current events and Bible prophecy and to prepare accordingly. There are some who just love this world and the life they have in this world too much to prepare. Their don't include God's plan for their life. They will not be ready.
If you have not done so already or if you have backslidden toward the world and are now worldly
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.
