    It is my understanding that he is going to allow it to play-out...meaning all of the prophecy in scripture will be fulfilled. My guess is that we are going to see the NWO birthed over the next 4 years and it is that system through-which the final antichrist will gain worldly-power.

    Food for thought: Who is the 'God of this Age'? The Most High God (Jesus' Father) will step-in when this age is over. Jesus will be the God of the next age...when he will rule the nations! All IMHO.

    Until He destroys "that Wicked" with the brightness of His coming (2 Thess 2:8). We are going into the tribulation as prophecied in the Word. Now would be a good time to wake up!!

    And then there's this:

    http://www.onenewsnow.com/Culture/Default.aspx?id=409270


    "A UN watchdog is concerned about a proposal discussed at the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that would create a global television channel.



    Cliff Kincaid, president of America's Survival, has expressed concern about the idea of a global IRS that was part of a report known as "The Global Agenda 2009," which was discussed at the recently concluded World Economic Forum in Davos.

    According to Kincaid, the report urges the creation of global television network that would be far more liberal than CNN.

    [​IMG]"They talk about this new channel having the ability to connect the world, to bridging cultures and people, and 'telling us who we are and what we mean to each other,'" he explains. "I mean, it sounds like a global brainwashing system...even worse than CNN."

    Although Kincaid says he is no biblical scholar, he wonders about the end-times implications of such a channel. "Clearly they're talking about this global order, the new world order, global taxes [and] now global TV put at the service of some kind of global ruler of the world," he continues. "I don't know whether that would be the anti-Christ or not."

    Kincaid says this story smacks of George Orwell's 1984."​

    A currency is a unit of exchange, facilitating the transfer of goods and/or services. It is coins and paper bills used as money. It is one form of money, where money is anything that serves as a medium of exchange, a store of value, and a standard of value. Currencies are the dominant medium of exchange. Coins and paper money are both forms of currency.

    In most cases, each private central bank has monopoly control over the supply and production of its own currency. To facilitate trade between these currency zones, there are exchange rates, which are the prices at which currencies (and the goods and services of individual currency zones) can be exchanged against each other. Currencies can be classified as either floating currencies or fixed currencies based on their exchange rate regime.

    In cases where a country does have control of its own currency, that control is exercised either by a central bank or by a Ministry of Finance. In either case, the institution that has control of monetary policy is referred to as the monetary authority. Monetary authorities have varying degrees of autonomy from the governments that create them. In the United States, the Federal Reserve System operates without direct oversight by the legislative or executive branches. It is important to note that a monetary authority is created and supported by its sponsoring government, so independence can be reduced or revoked by the legislative or executive authority that creates it. However, in practical terms, the revocation of authority is not likely. In almost all Western countries, the monetary authority is largely independent from the government.

    Several countries can use the same name for their own distinct currencies (e.g., dollar in Canada and the United States). By contrast, several countries can also use the same currency (e.g., the euro), or one country can declare the currency of another country to be legal tender. For example, Panama and El Salvador have declared U.S. currency to be legal tender, and from 1791–1857, Spanish silver coins were legal tender in the United States. At various times countries have either re-stamped foreign coins, or used currency board issuing one note of currency for each note of a foreign government held, as Ecuador currently does.

    Each currency typically has a main currency unit (the U.S. dollar, for example, or the euro) and a fractional currency, often valued at 1⁄100 of the main currency: 100 cents = 1 dollar, 100 centimes = 1 franc, 100 pence = 1 pound, although units of 1⁄10 or 1⁄1000 are also common. Some currencies do not have any smaller units at all.

    Mauritania and Madagascar are the only remaining countries that do not use the decimal system; instead, the Mauritanian ouguiya is divided into 5 khoums, while the Malagasy ariary is divided into 5 iraimbilanja. In these countries, words like dollar or pound "were simply names for given weights of gold." Due to inflation, khoums and iraimbilanja have in practice fallen into disuse.

    This is just the natural progression of things, a global currency, a global economy. We already have so much global media coverage, no one misses a thing. And currency trading is almost a hobby for some investors.

    Honestly, I doubt it worries God all that much.

    Yes, but it was good of Sphinx777 to take time to jog our memories in this matter.

    Speaking of currency, and globalism, I just read this today:

    1998: “…the transition to a single currency for the entire world could come with a speed that might surprise many. The world might easily move from having almost 200 currencies today to having one within a decade, and twenty-five years from now, historians would wonder why it took so long to eliminate the Babel of currencies which existed in the twentieth century.” — Bryan Taylor, Chief Economist at Global Financial Data.

    Interesting that he said this (whoever he is) in 1998 and a decade later we have plunged into a worldwide economic meltdown with the result of "the movers and shakers" insisting something needs to be done on the global level. I also find it interesting he used the word Babel. We're getting close.

    Eze 7:19They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.

    Eze 7:19They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be an unclean thing. Their silver and gold will not be able to save them in the day of the LORD's wrath. They will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it, for it has made them stumble into sin.

    Doesn't really matter what currency you use: the dollar, the lira, the yen, the franc, the Euro, the pound, the rubble, whatever. With all these major international corporations, we are all hopelessly interconnected.

    Ezekiel prophecied against Israel, the coming judgement against the four cornes of "the land" (not the whole earth, this is the very passages John alludes to in many places in revelation, specially chap 18), and said "the end is here, the end is here". This was fulfilled by Babylons overthrow of Jerusalem.
    And why did the judgemen come over Jerusalem at that time, and the very temple defiled and tared down? It is explained troughout the book of ezekiel, ISrael was worshipping false Gods, the wife of God had acted like a harlot.

    Ezekiel is filled with verses like these about Jerusalem:
    "Eze 16:30 How weak is thy heart, saith the Lord Jehovah, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an impudent harlot;
    Eze 16:31 in that thou buildest thy vaulted place at the head of every way, and makest thy lofty place in every street, and hast not been as a harlot, in that thou scornest hire.
    Eze 16:32 A wife that committeth adultery! that taketh strangers instead of her husband!
    Eze 16:33 They give gifts to all harlots; but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and bribest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredoms. "


    The biblical sound way to read revelation is that Jerusalem is the harlot that was judged in ad70. It is the only nation that had this kind of covenatnat with Jehova. We must read that book in light of the bible and follow its own guidelines, or we will get crazy interpretations.

    This is again what John quotes in revelation. The end wasnt the end of the earht thousands of years later, it was the end of Jerusalem at that time. This scripture should not be thought of as part of an last days propechy! IT should rahter be used as a light in whcihc we can read revelation as it is supposed to be understood.
