How do we get to a one world currency and government?

Revelation 13:16-17 (New King James Version)

16 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, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[a] the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

I have often wondered how we as a world get to the point where nobody in the entire world can buy or sell without having the mark of the beast. How do we get to this point in our society that seems so radical? Well, in the past few weeks I can finally see the road that will take us there.

Our world is tied together by our economies. Its easy to see this one daily basis just by looking at the effect that our rising and falling currency has on the rest of the world and ourselves. This is important to understand, in order to grasp the danger that lies ahead. The economy of Greece is on the verge of collapse, and other economies of the world are heavily invested in Greece. When the economy of Greece finally collapses it will have a domino effect hitting other world economies. The next to fail after Greece will be Spain, England, and Germany since they are so closely tied to Greece. When these three fail then the entire EU will fail. The EU failing will cause the United States to fail if we have not already. When the US fails the world fails.

I said that the US would fail if we had not already. Our economy is in deep trouble because of the massive spending over the past couple of years. Economist say that by 2020 just 10 years from now, and maybe sooner, Medicare, Medicaid, and Interest on our debt, will consume every tax dollar collected. Think about that. That does not include any other spending just those three. We cannot afford to keep spending like we are. Look for our dollar to be inflated in order to attempt to pay for all of our debt. other economies of the world are spending just like we are and that is why Greece and the EU are in trouble as well.

No the question is, what happens when the economies of the world collapse? Well look at the EU. They started out as the EC, a European Commonwealth, that just had a shared currency and now they are unified under a government. When the economies of the world collapse, its a perfect time for a group like the United Nations, though I'm not saying this is the group, to step in with a common world currency to try to stabilize the world wide crisis. The problem with a single world currency is the governing that follows.

We are on the edge of disaster and it seems that none of our leaders have a clue. Friends, get out of debt, turn to Christ, and pray. A time of great tribulation is coming and Christ is the only thing we can cling onto that will not fail us. Repent from your sin, get on your knees in prayer, turn back to Christ and fear no more. I know this seems radical and weird, but its how I see it through my eyes. Until next week.....pray.

The Middle East on Fire

This morning I heard a news report that President Obama snubbed visiting president Benjamin Netanyahu not once but twice. Obama is demanding that Netanyahu stop the building in Jerusalem and come to the table to accept a two state peace between Israel and Palestine. This will never happen, and tensions are rising. Our president as of this morning has only a 9% approval rating among Israelis. I've spoken before about the war of Gog and Magog. We see that all the players are aligned in this present time, like never before in History. Iran is allied with Russia and are on the fast track to getting an operational nuclear weapon to use on Israel, or try at least. Turkey has abandoned their alliance with Israel, while Iraq and Egypt are at peace. This is the picture of Gog and Magog. Friends, the time is close, and the world is being positioned for biblical prophecies to come true.

Matthew 3:2 (New International Version)

2and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."

The time to repent and come to Christ is now. You do not want to be on the losing side when Christ returns. Come to Jesus, and live.

Do we still Love our Neighbor?

Jesus gave us the two greatest commandments in Mark chapter 12 verses 28-34, but I want to focus on the second one. To love your neighbor as yourself. This comes to mind for me because I was reading about the last days in Matthew 24 and a verse stood out to me. Verse 12 listed below is what hit me so hard.

Matthew 24:12 (New King James Version)

12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

While examining my own heart, I wonder if I truly love my neighbor or has it grown cold? I end up asking myself some questions. Have you watched what is going on in this world? Are you frustrated with the school systems? Are you frustrated with the Government? Are the laws in this country backwards, when a person drives drunk and kills someone gets 6 months in jail, but someone who kills a dog gets 2 years in jail? Do you get tired of the bias toward Christianity? Does it bother you that Christ is being erased from all facets of life for the sake of separation of church and state? Is common sense dead? It feels like lawlessness is more acceptable now-days, rather than the biblical world view of living life.

After all of this examining of ourselves, do we still pray for our political leaders faithfully or do we just yell at the TV about how crazy all of this mess sounds? Do we pray for our teachers and school boards everyday, or complain about what our children are being taught and wish someone would do something about it? For me I fear that my love for my neighbor is at least getting chilly and I need to spend more time on my knees. I challenge everyone to examine yourself, so we do not fail at one of the greatest commandments. Lets love our neighbor.
