And I beheld another beast [dangerous animal / being] coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon [a diabolically fascinating, deceitful way]. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
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.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Rev. 11-18
Here is the passage most Americans have heard or read, regarding The End Times and how it will impact our economy, as well as our rights. It is a truly diabolical scheme to gain effective control over the populations of the world.
To date, however, it has been relegated to the Far Distant Future. A time when we will not be here and therefore not affected.
Larry Edelson, touted as “one of the foremost experts on gold and precious metals,” and the editor of Real Wealth Report and Gold and Silver Trader, is predicting a “severe and painful financial crises.” He characterizes this as the worst in world history.
This is not especially significant except that he says. in the May 27 Edition of Money & Markets, it will happen on October 7, 2015! His reasons are published in his new report, Black October, 2015: The Final Reckoning. We must purchase this if we want to know.
Marketing aside, Edelson points to major banks that are now charging their customers interest, for keeping their money in those banks, if your deposits are over $250k. He points to U.S. and Europe moving to abolish cash, the proliferation of online transactions, world-wide, the I.M.F. pushing for “Special Drawing Rights,” to replace hard currency, which means a New Global Reserve Currency, and a plethora of Nations either currently implementing or planning to ban at least some cash transactions.
We have read about the N.C. Convenience Store owner who woke up to find the Government had seized his Bank Account, with $107,000.00 in it, because of the numerous cash deposits. The computer ‘sees’ regular high ($10,000 or more) deposits as indication that illegal activity is occurring. This victim is having to pay attorneys to fight for the return of his own money!
Louisiana recently passed a law that bans cash transactions for second-hand merchandise. Can you say Yard Sale? or Flea Market?
Conventional Wisdom says the time will come when the masses will rise up and “throw the bums out!” I’m not that certain.
Today, especially in the Western World, citizens have been conditioned to life under the current financial philosophy. Young people generally have No Clue as to economic theory NOR Constitutional Law. It’s a sort of Mob-Mentality that rules the day, where economics and social issues are concerned.
The Bible is referencing a Future time when Satan will actually be indwelling / empowering a Western World Leader. A time when he realizes that if he doesn’t DO something he’s going to lose control. The best way to maintain control is through financial transactions: follow the money.
Dissent will be measured by the willingness to submit to his Global Identification Program. Those who do, will go to Hell! The Bible says this, not me!
Generations have wondered how such a system would actually work. We wonder no more. In fact, we joyfully embrace the technical systems that will facilitate this event.
The Bank used to send out Statements every 90 days. That became 30 days, in recent years. Paper and postage costs money to manage and process. Checks are in the same category.
It wasn’t that long ago Banks stopped sending cancelled checks. They no longer transfer them between banks, nor do they keep them. It’s all electronic. In fact, where business accounts are concerned, you pay each time you access the digital version of your check, online. Banks WANT you to Bank Online, Pay online, Collect Funds online. PayPal and others allow you to collect Credit Card debts via your smart phone
Experts tell us our Credit Cards are going the way of 8-Track Stereos. They are expensive to manufacture, account-for and maintain. The Electronic chips, embedded in our Credit Cards are too easily ‘read’ by passers-by with the right technology. New technology is coming that can only be scanned when up close. This will be in our cell-phones. There will be no more Credit Cards to monitor, secure and maintain.
All this lends itself to what Edelson is saying and, extrapolating forward, what The Bible predicted over 2000 years ago! We call these things, Signs Of The Times, and they are a bit scary.
