China and 21 other Asian nations take another step to break USA dollar dominance

Many in Asia have agreed to form a development bank:

China Launches New Asia Development Bank

October 24, 2014

BEIJING—China and 21 other countries have agreed to start an international development bank to fund infrastructure projects throughout all of Asia.  However, the proposal has drawn criticism from the United States, and three invited countries skipped Friday’s bank launch.China and the other countries have launched what is called the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.  The member nations include Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Among South Asian nations, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal are signed up.

In Beijing, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Hua Chunying, said finance ministers of the membership are looking forward to how the AIIB can improve their countries.

President Xi Jinping met with members of the 21 other countries and said they all expressed a desire to pursue common development.  Xi said the AIIB would promote regional development and be inclusive and open.

However, three countries skipped the bank’s launch.  Indonesia – Southeast Asia’s biggest economy – was a no show.  So were Australia and South Korea, although South Korea said there would be no reason to not join the bank if certain conditions were met.

The proposal for the development bank has met with strong criticism from the U.S. State Department.

Spokeswoman Jen Psaki has said Secretary of State John Kerry has made clear directly to the Chinese that Washington welcomes the idea of an infrastructure bank for Asia, but strongly urges that it meet international standards of governance and transparency.  She said the U.S. has concerns about the ambiguous nature of the AIIB proposal as it currently stands.

Washington has also expressed worries the bank will undercut the World Bank and Asian Development Bank.

On Friday, China’s Foreign Ministry responded to that criticism, saying that the bank is intended to satisfy the infrastructure needs in the region.

Spokesperson Hua said China is doing this to promote solidarity, and that the bank will be supplementary and complementary to other banks.

On transparency, Hua said China and the 21 other members will cooperate to make the AIIB’s financing structure open and inclusive.

China proposed the formation of the bank one year ago, and it is expected to begin operations next year.  The bank is also fueling concerns that it will allow China to have undue influence in Asia; China will be the largest shareholder with a 50 percent stake, and it will contribute up to $50 billion in capital.   http://www.voanews.com/content/china-launches-new-asia-development-bank/2494903.html

This is another step that China is taking to increase its regional and international influence.  Last Summer, it agreed to an arrangement with Russia, India, Brazil, and South Africa to have a development bank which basically is an alternative to the IMF/World Bank (see BRICS take another step to reduce USA dollar dominance).

Several years ago former President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, went to China to work to replace the USA dollar with something that included the Chinese yuan and the EU’s euro (see France and China Working Hard to Replace Dollar).

China and some of its allies want to topple the dominance of the USA dollar.  Some have claimed that it will succeed by the end of this year (watch Market Collapse then New World Order in 2015?  and/or see a somewhat related written item New World Order and Market Collapse by December 2014?).

The USA has taken steps to devalue its own currency by increasing its debt and through programs like ‘quantitative easing’ –biblically the USA is adding ‘dross’ to its currency, which is not good (Isaiah 1:22,25; Proverbs 25:4a). At some point in time in the future, this will result in disaster for the USA according to biblical prophecy.

The USA has been playing a dangerous game with its own currency.

That being said, while China and others in Asia will help contribute to the fall of the USA dollar, the Bible shows that it will be a European power that will dominate the world economically for several years until the return of Jesus Christ.

Today’s bank report is just a step taken to get to the objective of eliminating the USA dollar’s dominance.  And have no doubt about it, the USA dollar will one day fall and be worth probably no more than the cotton-paper it is often printed on.

UK’s Cameron claims he will not pay EU ‘surcharge;’ Nigel Farage disagrees

Friday, October 24th, 2014

COGwriter

The European Union has asked the UK to give over USD$2,000,000,000 in a ‘surcharge December 1, 2014 and the UK’s Prime Minister says he will not pay it:

October 24, 2014

David Cameron has angrily insisted the UK will not pay a £1.7bn bill demanded by the European Union by 1 December.

“If people think I am paying that bill on 1 December, they have another thing coming,” the prime minister told reporters in Brussels.

He said the EU demand was “totally unacceptable” and no way for the organisation to behave – and he want to examine how they arrived at the amount.

EU finance ministers have agreed to the UK’s request for emergency talks.

Mr Cameron told reporters in Brussels that the British public would find the “vast” sum of money asked of the EU was “totally unacceptable”.

He said that he first heard about the EU’s demands on Thursday but acknowledged that the Treasury knew about it last week.

He interrupted a meeting of EU leaders in Brussels to express dismay at the demand for the UK to pay more into the EU’s coffers on 1 December.

He told Commission boss Jose Manuel Barroso he had no idea of the impact it would have, Downing Street said.

It will add about a fifth to the UK’s annual net EU contribution of £8.6bn.

There has been anger across the political spectrum in the UK at the EU’s demand for additional money, which comes just weeks before the vital Rochester and Strood by-election, where UKIP is trying to take the seat from the Conservatives.

Drugs and prostitution

EU leaders discussed the issue for an hour in Brussels on Friday. Mr Cameron told Mr Barroso, who steps down next month, that the problem was not just press or public opinion but was about the amount of money being demanded.

The surcharge follows an annual review of the economic performance of EU member states since 1995, which showed Britain has done better than previously thought. Elements of the black economy – such as drugs and prostitution – have also been included in the calculations for the first time. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-29754168

Anti-EU UK leader Nigel Farage claims that David Cameron will have to pay anyway:

October 24, 2014

Nigel Farage has claimed that David Cameron will be forced to pay out an extra £1.7bn into the EU budget by the end of next month despite the government saying the extra demand was not acceptable.

The Ukip leader’s comments, which he says is a reflection of Britain’s impotence in Europe, will increase the pressure on the prime minister following Thursday night’s disclosure that Britain has been ordered to pay the money because its economy is performing better than other EU economies.

A government source said the demand was “not acceptable”. It remained unclear on Friday morning whether the British government would challenge the EU demand in the courts,an option the Dutch government is reportedly exploring.

But on an LBC radio phone-in on Friday morning, Farage said Cameron would have little option but to go along with the demand, which will have to be paid in December.

“Of course he will pay up. These are the rules, the contributions to the European Union was a very complex formula and part of it is a measurement of your GDP against everybody else’s. There’s nothing he can do,” he said.

But prominent Tory critics of Europe continued to demand that Cameron makes a stand.

Conservative backbencher John Redwood said the surcharge “offended all our principles of natural justice and fair taxation”.

“It is a very large increase in tax on the British people charged retrospectively without their agreement,” he told Radio 4’s Today programme.

He suggested the UK should simply refuse to pay the extra amount and that parliament should be asked to pass a law declaring the payment illegal.

“The British people will not want to send another £1.7bn to the European Union by a very big majority and so the British government just says it won’t pay,” he said.

Tory Eurosceptic Mark Pritchard said Cameron should consider bringing forward a referendum on whether the UK should leave the EU, which the prime minister has promised in 2017.  http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/oct/24/eu-contribution-cameron-pay-extra-funds-farage

David Cameron is in a tough spot.  He wants the UK to stay in the European Union and knows full well that this request for additional funds will assist those, like Nigel Farage, who want the UK to leave the EU.

Many months ago, UK Prime Minister David Cameron warned that if Jean-Claude Juncker became EU Commission President, this would increase the probability that the UK will later vote to leave the European Union. Jean-Claude Juncker was then appointed the EU Commission President.

For a while, the general feeling has been that if those in the UK get a chance to vote, they will vote themselves out of the European Union. Many wish to prevent that type of vote, but David Cameron’s UK Conservative party has pledged to have such a vote if it is remains in power.

More and more, the continental Europeans are becoming displeased with the UK and its approach to European Union matters.  And they will not take kindly to the UK’s Prime Minister’s refusal to pay.

The EU is having financial problems:

October 24, 2014

BRUSSELS—

Euro zone leaders sought on Friday to bridge stark differences over how to avoid economic stagnation and deflation in the bloc, with Germany facing fresh calls to soften its budget rigor and spend more.

With a U.S.-style bond-buying plan by the European Central Bank off the table for now, the bloc has few options, leaving other euro zone leaders to tread a careful line between the opposing growth and austerity camps.

“It’s very important to find a balance between growth and stability,” Finland’s Prime Minister Alex Stubb said as he arrived at the second day of an EU summit at which ECB President Mario Draghi will address leaders.

After the euro zone’s revival came to a halt in the second quarter, France and Italy want to shift course away from the spending cuts that marked the bloc’s response to 2009-2012 crisis, but Germany says debt discipline must continue.

The euro zone’s poor performance is becoming a wider concern, with the United States and the International Monetary Fund worrying that the bloc that makes up a fifth of the world economy is a drag on global prosperity.

The debate is complicated by EU rules that seek to keep country’s public finances in order and Germany’s promise to balance its books next year for the first time since 1969.

The European Union’s top economic official renewed the charge against Berlin, saying that without investment the future was bleak for Europe’s biggest economy, even if it is stronger than most.

“All euro area countries have shortages in potential growth, including Germany,” said Jyrki Katainen, the European Commissioner who will become the bloc’s growth tsar from November, tasked with bringing down near record unemployment and sinking investment.  http://www.voanews.com/content/reu-eu-growth-tsar-tells-germany-to-invest-more-no-decision-on-italy/2494736.html

If the UK does not pay, this will show more in the EU that the UK does not want the EU to truly succeed.  Of course, the UK did not cause most of the EU’s problems, and the EU has problems of its own.  There has been, for example, an increase of German investment in the USA (e.g. German companies look overseas as home opportunities fade) that means that less investment is remaining in Germany itself (it also means that the Germany is becoming more of a creditor to the USA and that will not end well for the USA per Habakkuk 2:6-8).  Despite certain German moves, it is the UK that will tend to get blamed more for the immediate short-term issues in the EU, as well as certain longer running problems.

As far as the current situation goes, most likely the UK will file a lawsuit and/or conduct negotiations with the EU to try to reduce/delay the payment surcharge that has now been demanded.  David Cameron will try to do something to claim some type of victory and hope that his nation will not vote to leave the European Union.

The idea of Britain leaving the European Union has been called a “Brexit” or “Brixet” – British exit. Here is a news item I posted here back in February related to that:

The fact of the matter is that “Brexit” happens to make perfect sense for the UK.

There is not going to be a two-speed EU with some countries in the Eurozone and others not. One is going to be either in or out. Sitting on the fence forever won’t happen. Neither French president Francois Hollande nor the UK liberals will allow that. http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com/2014/02/rise-of-eurosceptics-in-netherlands.html#Rp3H28DwXxljt5Y1.99

On June 26, 2007, (see Tony Blair a Catholic EU Leader?), I posted the following:

We in the COGs tend to believe that the final beast power will be nominally Catholic (see Europa and the Beast of Revelation)…we in the COGs do believe that Britain will pull out of the EU…

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will not be an equal part of the European Union. Britain will either pull out or be forced out or at least truly lose its sovereignty. The Bible indicates that the end time descendants of the Israelite tribes, because of their national sins, will be taken over and many killed.

Many of the Anglo-Saxon peoples of the UK, USA, etc. that are not killed will to be scattered and many will be made slaves by the final European Beast power(see Hosea 7:11-16; 9:1-17; 11:5-7; 12:1; 13:12-16; see also Will the Anglo-Nations be Divided and Have People Taken as Slaves?). That is some of what the Bible shows will happen during the Great Tribulation.

The final European King of the North (Daniel 11:27-40) will take over the UK, USA, and their Anglo-Saxon allies according to Bible prophecy (cf. Daniel 11:39).

While more and more people in the UK are concerned about EU plans, most have no idea how dangerous the rising Beast power in Europe will become (cf. Revelation 13:1-4; Daniel 11:39). Britain will ultimately NOT thrive as part of the EU but will be taken over by the final European Beast power.

No matter how much of a surcharge the UK may or may not pay, it will not be able to stop this.

Republicans expected to gain seats in Midterms, so what?

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

COGwriter

Miderm elections in the USA are scheduled to take place on November 4, 2014 and Republicans are expected to make some gains:

October 23, 2014

The president is a drag on his party in the upcoming midterms. Candidates are distancing themselves from the Oval Office occupant. And the president has lost the magic that propelled him into the White House. Are we talking again about President Obama? Actually, we’re talking about almost every president since World War II, especially those in their sixth year in office — the so-called “Six-Year Itch.” Consider these headlines over the past three decades:

  • “Campaigner in Chief Has Limited Reach; An Unpopular President Avoids Many Key Races” (Washington Post, 11/1/2006)
  • “US elections Bush factor is proving a negative for voters and candidates along the campaign trail” (The Guardian, 10/17/2006)
  • “Clinton’s troubles reemerge as election issue” (The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, 11/2/1998)
  • “Reagan’s coattails are frayed, Democrats say” (AP, 11/1/1986)
  • “The Great Communicator Fizzles” (Evans & Novak, 10/31/1986)

This isn’t to dismiss the political problems surrounding Obama and his party heading into next month’s contests. But it is a reminder that the party controlling the White House almost always loses seats in a midterm election.  http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/first-read/history-lesson-midterms-arent-kind-party-white-house-n232236

The NBC piece is intended to lower expectations so that the White House will not be blamed for the expected result of the upcoming elections.

Might possible Republican gains make any difference?

Yes.

Republican gains in midterm elections during the Clinton Administration did end up affecting legislation.  And the cooperation between the Clinton Administration and Congress led to certain economic and other legislation.

Whether Barack Obama will be as open in his last two year to cooperation with Congress as Bill Clinton was will be seen.  Sometimes cooperation happens when both parties feel that they have little choice.  Whether or not this cooperation will truly be helpful for the USA remains to be seen.

Will possible Republican gains make any important spiritual difference?

Probably not.

Notice comments from one pundit:

Could Republican’s win big on Election Day and still be behind the ball in the grand scheme of things? Mark Steyn seems to think so.

According to the conservative columnist, even though conservatives and Republicans may do well on Nov. 4, liberals are winning the other 364 days throughout the year, or the “culture stakes,” with tremendous effect on our society.

“Election Day is one day a year, and the culture is the other 364 days a year,” said Steyn. “So if you’re not in there competing in the schools, competing in the pop culture, competing in the media, competing in the main-line churches, then the air we breathe becomes liberal.”

“That’s the default setting in society. Whoever gets elected on a Tuesday morning in November doesn’t actually make much difference.” …

The left is brilliant at framing the debate,” Steyn told Kilmeade, noting specific buzz words for being “anti-women,” “racist,” and “homophobic,” according to the left.

“When you let the left win the language wars…when you make it impossible even to bring up those subjects, you basically ensure that you’re going to lose no matter who wins in November,” he concluded. http://dailycaller.com/2014/10/20/mark-steyn-doesnt-matter-if-gop-win-midterms-liberals-winning-other-364-days-culture-wars-video/

I saw Mark Steyn on the news last night.  He basically stated that the Republicans may well gain seats in the midterms, but “the liberals are winning the culture war.”

And to a major degree he is correct.  The ‘conservatives’ have not been able to get the nation to repent from officially embracing many practices that the Bible shows are sinful.

Furthermore, consider that if Barack Obama nominates someone for the US Supreme Court, he would only propose an individual who he felt would be pro-abortion and pro-homosexual marriage.  Republicans in Congress will not stop that.  They may sometimes stop certain nominees, but whoever President Obama would nominate would be pushing at least those anti-biblical objectives.

While there are some Republicans standing up against abortion and the homosexual agenda, they are getting fewer and fewer.  These are simply not positions that most Republicans will risk re-election for.  Hence, Republicans will go along with, and not reverse, the overall trend in the USA to go the wrong direction.

I would add that Republicans have other problems of their own, but I am mainly trying to address the reality that Republican gains in the midterms are not expected to change the moral direction of the country.  Nor will they turn back the outrage that the Europeans have over the USA’s espionage.  Nor will they be able to eliminate the debt that will be a factor in the coming destruction of the USA (Habakkuk 2:6-8) by the Europeans (Daniel 11:39).

What the USA needs is national repentance, the return of Jesus Christ, and the establishment of the Kingdom of God.

Potential Republican victories this November will not change what the USA really needs.

Canadian Pariliament Attacked and White House Walls Scaled

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014


Canadian Parliament Building, Ottawa

COGwriter

Canada got hit with a terrorist incident, its second attack by Islamic converts this week:

October 23, 2014

The man who stormed Canada’s government complex Wednesday, killing a soldier and sending Ottawa into an all-out panic, was a small-time criminal who recently converted to Islam and desperately wanted to move to the Middle East, according to reports.

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the 32-year-old whose morning raid on Parliament Hill ended when a sergeant-at-arms gunned him down as he was unleashing a fusillade of bullets in the halls of Canada’s federal government, had recently undergone a religious awakening that left at least one friend alarmed. “We were having a conversation in a kitchen, and I don’t know how he worded it: He said the devil is after him,” Dave Bathurst told the newspaper. “I think he must have been mentally ill.”…

Witnesses said an armed Zehaf-Bibeau drove to the Ottawa complex just before 10 a.m Wednesday, jumped out of a Toyota with no license plates and ran to the National War Memorial, where he shot a soldier later identified as Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. The 25-year-old father of a six-year-old boy, who was a member of Canada’s Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders regiment, died later at Civic Hospital.

Zehaf-Bibeau then ran to the East Block of Parliament Hill, firing more shots and sending politicians, journalists and other workers scattering, although no one else was killed…

The raid came just one day after Canada raised its terror alert and two days after another jihadist convert, Martin Couture-Rouleau, killed uniformed Canadian soldier Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent in a hit-and-run in Quebec that police believe was intentional. Couture-Rouleau, who was shot to death by police, had recently had his passport seized to bar him from travelling to the Middle East to join the Islamic State.

Canada rasied its alert level after the attack, and cited chatter from Islamic State sources calling on supporters to strike back at Canada in retaliation for its decision to join coalition forces performing airstrikes in Iraq.  http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/10/23/ottawa-gunman-displayed-possible-mental-illness-knew-homegrown-jihadist/

October 23, 2014

Canada’s prime minister says that his country “will never be intimidated” following attacks this week in Ottawa and near Montreal that have killed two soldiers.

In a televised address Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the attacks are reminders that Canada is not immune to terrorism and vowed to “redouble” efforts to identify and counter threats. …

Little is known about the assailant, identified as ex-convict Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, who was fatally shot inside parliament by Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers.

According to those present, many fled the complex by scrambling down scaffolding erected for renovations, while others took cover inside and barricaded doors with chairs as police with rifles and body armor took up positions outside and cordoned off the normally bustling streets around Parliament.

Police and witnesses, including parliament members, said they heard about 10 shots before the police moved in. …

Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird, in a telephone conversation with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, appeared to link the attack to Canada’s participation in the U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State group.

Earlier this week, a man whom the prime minister described as a Muslim convert who had been “radicalized” drove a car into two Canadian soldiers in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, about 40 kilometers southeast of Montreal, killing one.

President Barack Obama spoke by phone with Prime Minister Harper after Wednesday’s attacks and said it was important for U.S. and Canadian counterterrorism authorities to continue working in sync. …

Canadian authorities have yet to determine the motive for the Wednesday shooting, which came as Canadian warplanes prepared to join the U.S.-led operation bombarding Islamist militants in Iraq.  http://www.voanews.com/content/canada-parliament-shooting-terrorist-attack/2493355.html

Ottawa, Canada (CNN) — It was a surprise, even for a journalist, to be driving down Wellington Street, the city’s ceremonial thoroughfare, and to find myself swept into the chaotic aftermath of a disaster. I was rushing to a television studio at mid-morning and passing by the National War Memorial, just minutes after the shooting. A solider was down.

Police were closing streets, stopping traffic, barking orders, brandishing machine guns, fingers on triggers. They soon imposed a lockdown, lasting until mid-afternoon. It is from that confinement that I began writing this.

This is not supposed to happen in Canada — much less Ottawa, its sleepy, self-absorbed capital.

Sentries do not die on duty at the National War Memorial in this, our season of remembrance. Politicians do not cower in the committee rooms of Parliament, as its Gothic hallways ring with gunfire. Sharpshooters do not take up position on oxidized copper rooftops nearby, looking for men with long rifles.

This is Canada, once known as “the Peaceable Kingdom.” Now we have learned, like so many other countries, that terrible, unsentimental reality of the 21st century: It can happen here.  http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/22/opinion/cohen-ottawa-shooting-lockdown/

Of course, terrorism can take place in Canada.  And Canada will experience more terrorism.  Those associated with the Islamic State reportedly are celebrating the attack in Canada.  Here is one limited report:

Wednesday’s killing of Cpl. Nathan Frank Cirilloin the heart of Canada’s capital showed, even simple attacks can elicit the widespread panic and attention these groups crave.

Many details about Cirillo’s killing and the motives of the shooter, identified as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, are still unknown. Was there any connection to Martin Couture-Rouleau, 25, who killed 53-year-old Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent Monday in a hit-and-run in Quebec? Did Zehaf-Bibeau have any ties abroad?

But no matter the connections, followers of the Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL) benefited from the worldwide attention as they gloated on social media soon after Cirillo’s death. “Canada getting a taste of their own medicine?” wrote one. Another prolific ISIS supporter wrote: “Canada starting to pay the price of intervention.” …

Amarnath Amarasingam, a post-doctoral fellow at Dalhousie University’s Resilience Research Centre, who has been studying Canadian ISIS recruits, says Wednesday’s attack perfectly suited the group’s narrative. “They’re calling for Muslims to defend the Islamic State but if they can’t travel, then Muslims around the world are to attack at home to support the caliphate.” http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2014/10/22/islamic_states_call_for_domestic_attacks_has_troubled_security_officials.html

Terrorism is wrong and should not be celebrated nor encouraged.  Yet, more terrorism is expected as terrorism is prophesied:

25 The sword shall destroy outside; There shall be terror within (Deuteronomy 32:25).

12 Behold, these are the ungodly, Who are always at ease; They increase in riches…19 Oh, how they are brought to desolation, as in a moment! They are utterly consumed with terrors. (Psalms 73:12,19)

12 “Cry and wail, son of man; For it will be against My people, Against all the princes of Israel. Terrors including the sword will be against My people; Therefore strike your thigh. (Ezekiel 21:12)

14 ‘But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments, 15 and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant, 16 I also will do this to you: I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17 I will set My face against you, and you shall be defeated by your enemies. Those who hate you shall reign over you, and you shall flee when no one pursues you. (Leviticus 26:14-17)

Canada is not the only nation to be hit in the future.  The other Anglo-Saxon nations (UK, Australia, and New Zealand) are also subject to future terrorism.

And the USA had another attack at the White House:

October 23, 2014

An intruder scaled the White House fence Wednesday, but was quickly pounced on by guard dogs in the latest scare since an armed man made it into the executive mansion last month.

Secret Service officials said Dominic Adesanya, 23, of Bel Air, Md., climbed over the fence near the North Lawn of the White House at 7:16 p.m., but was quickly subdued by K-9 units.

Adesanya kicked one of the dogs, but a second one stopped him and Secret Service agents tackled him, officials said.

“The dog got him,” a Secret Service spokesman said.

… Dominic Adesanya’s father said the 23-year-old suffers from mental illness.  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/white-house-fence-jumper-caught-k-9-units-article-1.1983964

Both the Canadian and American attackers were accused of having ‘mental illness.’  While that may be case, both were spiritually ill. Yet, they both attacked.

More attacks and terrors are coming.

Europe eliminating remaining ‘bank secrecy’ as it gets closer to Revelation 13:16-18

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014


Luxembourg City (Sixdown)

COGwriter

Europe has gotten agreements to eliminate the last bastions of ‘bank secrecy’ on the continent:

After Decades of Pressure, Luxembourg Drops Bank Secrecy Rules

European Union finance ministers have reached a breakthrough agreement…

Europe’s top tax official – Algirdas Semeta – says depositors will no longer be able to hide their money from the prying eyes of governments.“The revised directive promises full and lasting tax transparency in Europe,” he said. “Bank secrecy is dead, and automatic exchange of information will be applied in its widest form.”

Luxembourg agreed to share bank information with member countries starting in 2017 — with Austria signaling similar intentions by 2018.

Analyst Jacob Kirkegaard at the Peterson Institute for International Economics calls the agreement a milestone in global efforts to stop tax evasion.

“This is a very significant development and it’s really the culmination of what at least in the EU has been a decade-long struggle by some governments – in France, Italy and Germany – to really curb this longstanding practice of anonymous, offshore, if you like, bank accounts in other EU countries,” he said.

Decades of bank secrecy helped establish Luxembourg as one of Europe’s biggest financial centers – where bank deposits are currently valued at more than 10 times the nation’s annual GDP.  Switzerland – once among the world’s largest tax havens – ended bank secrecy last year, after intense legal pressure from Europe and the United States.  http://www.voanews.com/content/luxembourg-drops-bank-secrecy-rules/2490460.html

The USA has been a big factor in this.  And while this may or may not reduce tax crimes, it is another step in getting the Europeans the ability to fulfill the following prophecies:

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 the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (Revelation 13:16-18)

The Bible teaches that it will be a European power that is 666 and will enforce what is prophesied in Revelation 13:16-18 (watch also Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?).  This power will eliminate the USA according to the Bible (cf. Daniel 11:39).  Since ‘bank secrecy’ in Europe will officially end in 2018, this takes the world a step closer to the fulfillment of biblical prophecies related to financial control and greater financial unity within Europe.

Earlier this week, I reported that Sweden is moving towards only having electronic currency (see Sweden becoming cashless? A prelude to 666?), Ecuador moving towards a digital currency (see Sweden becoming cashless? A prelude to 666?), and because of applications such as Apple Pay (see Could Apple Pay be a step towards 666?), the world is going more towards electronic forms of currency that governments can monitor and control.  This, combined with the agreement to eliminate the remaining ‘bank secrecy’ nations in Europe, means that legally there will be less and less ways to evade getting buying and selling monitored, especially in Europe.

A reader sent me the following which he said was basically machine-translated:

Ripple Labs: Guttenberg is now in Cyber-Currency

The traditional payment system is “antiquated, expensive and inefficient”, says ex-Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg. So he turns now to the digital financial world and starts as a consultant for Start-up Ripple Labs.

12.07.2014

San Francisco – The former Economic- and Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg joint the American Start-up Ripple Labs as consultant. He wants to help the company, which is specialized in money transfers, “to circumvent the regulatory pitfalls”, Guttenberg told the “Wirtschaftswoche” according to an earlier information on Saturday. According to the report Ripple Labs is working to make transfers as easy as sending an email…

Guttenberg said: “The traditional payment system is antiquated, expensive and inefficient.” The market for Cyber-Currency is still in its infancy “but the invention of this technology cannot be reversed”, Guttenberg said. The former politician emerges now on the company website as one of eight advisers.

The former ‘man of  hope’ of the CSU was Minister of Economic Affairs and took over the defense portfolio in autumn 2009. Beginning of 2011 Guttenberg, stepped down after the University of Bayreuth had denied him the title ‘doctor’, because of plagiarism. He then moved with his family to the United States.  http://www.spiegel.de/netzwelt/web/karl-theodor-zu-guttenberg-arbeitet-jetzt-fuer-start-up-ripple-labs-a-980675.html

Here is something that Ripple Labs said about him:

Ripple Labs is thrilled to announce that Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg is joining the advisory board. Mr. zu Guttenberg is the Chairman and a Founder of Spitzberg Partners LLC, a New York-based boutique corporate advisory and investment firm that provides strategic counsel and investment insights on European and international political, economic, diplomatic, technology, and security issues.

He served as Minister of Economics and Technology and then as Minister of Defense in the cabinet of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. As the youngest Defense Minister in German history, he led the most significant structural reform of the German armed forces since the Bundeswehr’s founding. During his time in office, Minister zu Guttenberg was Germany’s most popular politician.

Mr. zu Guttenberg was a Member of Parliament (Bundestag) during 2002-2011 and served as spokesman on the Foreign Affairs Committee. He was also a Member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and Secretary General of Germany’s co-governing CSU party.

Herr Guttenberg is one I have in mind as a possible future King of the North or supporter of that king.  Knowledge of buying and selling with technology in the 21st century would be quite helpful for the final Beast power.  Back on December 13, 2011 (see Guttenberg Criticized, But…), I reported the following about Baron Guttenberg:

Notice some prophecies related to the Beast and his empire:

15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 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 the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.  (Revelation 13:15-18)

The fact that the Baron is to advise about internet security and surveillance may encourage him to press to get the above implemented.  The fact that he was once Economics Minister for Germany also gives him additional qualifications to possibly help fulfill Revelation 13:15-18.

His new role is consistent with that.  Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg keeps taking steps consistent with one who could be the final Beast.  While he has not yet publicly pressed to get Revelation 13:16-18 implemented, his background and interests show he is one who will likely understand enough technology to do so.

That being said, we are seeing the trend for the governments around the world to more fully control buying and selling. Yet, the Bible also indicates in several places that all the wealth will NOT be electronic (cf. Revelation 18; Zechariah 14:14).

But it is becoming clearer and clearer that governments, like those in Europe, will clearly be able to control/monitor the bulk of buying and selling.

Could possible ‘magnetic flip’ fulfill Bible prophecy?

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014


COGwriter

Scientists are expecting a possible magnetic flip, and sooner than many used to:

October 21, 2014

The Earth’s magnetic field is in a weakening stage right now. Data collected this summer by a European Space Agency (ESA) satellite suggests the field is weakening 10 times faster than scientists originally thought. They predicted a flip could come within the next couple thousand years. It turns out that might be a very liberal estimate, scientists now say. [Infographic: Explore Earth's Atmosphere Top to Bottom]

“We don’t know whether the next reversal will occur as suddenly as this [previous] one did, but we also don’t know that it won’t,” Paul Renne, director of the Geochronology Center at the University of California, Berkeley,said in a statement.

Geologists still are not sure what causes the planet’s magnetic field to flip direction. Earth’s iron core acts like a giant magnet and generates the magnetic field that envelops the planet. This helps protect against blasts of radiation that erupt from the sun and sometimes hurtle toward Earth. A weakening magnetic field could interrupt power grids and radio communication, and douse the planet in unusually high levels of radiation. …

Magnetic doomsday?

While a pole flip could cause a few technical issues, there’s no need to panic. Scientists have combed the geological timeline for any evidence of catastrophes that might be related to a magnetic flip. They haven’t found any.

The only havoc that a reversal would wreak is interference in the global electric grid. No direct evidence remains of past catastrophes triggered by a magnetic flip.

However, if the magnetic field weakens enough or temporarily disappears during the flip, then the Earth could be hit with dangerous amounts of solar radiation and cosmic rays. The exposure could mean that more people develop cancer, Renne said, though there’s no scientific proof this could happen.

Some believed that a version of this might happen on the Mayan December 21, 2012 calendar date and cause all kinds of chaos. Because of the dependency of Western societies on electricity, computers, etc., the West is certainly vulnerable to massive upheavals in the event of a massive solar flare or something that affects the earth electrically (emp-type bombs also come to mind).

Notice also the following:

October 21, 2014

Scientists predict that the Earth’s magnetic field can flip far faster than previously thought – unleashing a force which Mayan apocalypse believers thought might destroy our planet in 2012.

Berkeley scientists say that the Earth’s magnetic field can weaken and dip within just 100 years, before flipping so that compasses point south – an event they admit could wreck the entire world’s power grid and expose the world to deadly cosmic rays.

Earth’s magnetic field is weakening 10 times faster than normal at present, leading geophysicists to predict a flip within a few thousand years – but Discovery news says that could understimate the speed of the change.

Authors such as Robert Felix claim that previous reversals have been associated with mass disruptions such as the extinction of Neanderthal man, and with supervolcano eruptions and other apocalyptic events. http://metro.co.uk/2014/10/21/earths-magnetic-field-is-about-to-flip-scientists-warn-4914467/

As I wrote in the past, I do not believe that the reversal of the magnetic field will cause an immediate end to Western civilization. I suspect, however, that there will be major electrical sorrows and troubles before the end (cf. Mark 13:8b,c).  And problems with supervolcanoes is likely (see also ).

As far as the Mayans and 2012, etc., solar storms and the related damage were discussed in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect. Here are several passages related to them:

Notice the following from N.A.S.A.:

Solar Storm Warning: Researchers announced that a storm is coming—the most intense solar maximum in fifty years. The prediction comes from a team led by Mausumi Dikpati of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)…

Solar physicist David Hathaway of the National Space Science & Technology Center (NSSTC)…has confidence in the conveyor belt model and agrees with Dikpati that the next solar maximum should be a doozy. But he disagrees with one point…a storm is coming.

Solar outbursts have been proposed that could essentially wipe out modern civilization.

Notice a scenario that is based on a report from the U.S. National Academy of Scientists (although the precise date seems to be speculative):

IT IS midnight on 22 September 2012 and the skies above Manhattan are filled with a flickering curtain of colourful light…Within 90 seconds, the entire eastern half of the US is without power.

A year later and millions of Americans are dead and the nation’s infrastructure lies in tatters. The World Bank declares America a developing nation. Europe, Scandinavia, China and Japan are also struggling to recover from the same fateful event – a violent storm, 150 million kilometres away on the surface of the sun…

According to the NAS report, a severe space weather event in the US could induce ground currents that would knock out 300 key transformers within about 90 seconds, cutting off the power for more than 130 million people…

First to go – immediately for some people – is drinkable water…With no electricity to pump water from reservoirs, there is no more…There is simply no electrically powered transport: no trains, underground or overground…For hospitals, that would mean about 72 hours of running a bare-bones, essential care only, service. After that, no more modern healthcare.

The truly shocking finding is that this whole situation would not improve for months, maybe years…

There also seems to be a couple of Mayan predictions recorded in the 16th century that suggest some type of solar flare-up will affect the earth:

Chilam Balam (Mayan priest): Heaven and earth shall burn…It is the holy judgment, the holy judgment.

Napuctun (Mayan priest): It shall burn on earth; there shall be a circle in the sky.

Another N.A.S.A./N.O.A.A. report has indicated that the next solar cycle peak may be later, like May 2013… The Bible itself warns of a time of scorching solar heat (Revelation 16:8-9…)…

and other prophecies are expected before 2030 (but after 2012)

Whether or not one believes secular scientists who assert that humans are causing “global warming,” and islands will be submerged, the Bible is clear that a time of high heat will happen, probably worsened by a solar flare-up of some type. It also mentions the islands being gone:

8 Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory…every island fled away (Revelation 16:8-9, 20).

The signs will be powerful. And the Babylonian power will fall during the Day of the Lord (Revelation 18:2).

So, my 2012 book was right that the scorching heat and certain other prophecies would not happen until after 2012.

The Bible warns about a time in the Book of Revelation of solar disturbances:

8 Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory. (Revelation 16:8-9)

It may be that the ‘magnetic flip’ will be the physical cause for the scorching heat.  If so, this be a reason that humankind will not repent as most will claim this is a natural, not supernatural, event.  Many will rely on interpretations of groups like the European Space Agency, and most ignore this and other warning signs.

Will you?

Could Apple Pay be a step towards 666?

Apple Pay on an iPhone and an Apple Watch

COGwriter

Is ‘Apple Pay’ the next step in money?:

October 21, 2014

CUPERTINO, Calif. — Apple’s mobile payment system, Apple Pay, made its debut Monday. Now you can flash your new iPhone in the checkout line to pay for food, clothing and other goods. There’s no need to pull out your credit card. …

Although security measures are never foolproof, the Apple Pay system is safer than many current pay methods. …

Most retail stores that accept contactless payments should be able to use Apple Pay, as well as Google Wallet, Softcard and other services that are based on a wireless-chip technology called near-field communication, or NFC. It’s possible that some stores have the hardware in place, but haven’t turned on the functionality yet. The debut of Apple Pay is likely to prompt those merchants to do so.  http://www.bostonherald.com/business/technology/technology_news/2014/10/apple_pay_qa_what_you_need_to_know

As Apple Pay Arrives, Witnessing the Next Step in Money. Maybe.

Generation after generation of Americans used cash as their primary payment. They then turned to bank checks, later to credit and debit cards. Within a few decades of their introduction, credit cards became ubiquitous: By 2012, nearly three quarters of a billion credit cards were being used in the United States, according to the Federal Reserve.

Think of Apple Pay as taking the card out of credit card. After entering their credit card information into the latest iPhones, customers can wave their phone in front of a properly equipped payment terminal at retailers like Whole Foods and McDonald’s. Customers verify the transaction with the iPhone’s fingerprint scanning hardware.

Today, relatively few people buy things with a wave of a smartphone. In the United States last year, consumers spent $1.6 billion using contactless mobile payments of the sort allowed by Apple Pay, according to estimates from eMarketer, a market research firm. That is just a tiny fraction of $264.3 billion in e-commerce purchases made last year, and an even smaller portion of $4.26 trillion in traditional in-store retail purchases.

“Right now, mobile wallets are sort of like e-commerce in 1995,” said John Collison, co-founder of Stripe, a payments processing firm. “Amazon was one of the big companies that made people feel O.K. to put their credit cards online.” Apple, he said, will do the same for the mobile wallet.

But others point to previous mobile wallet efforts from Google, Verizon and Square, among others, all of which failed to gain wide adoption. And Apple’s largest difficulty could be to persuade thousands of retailers to accept Apple Pay at the checkout line.  http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/21/technology/as-apple-pay-arrives-witnessing-the-next-step-in-money-maybe.html?_r=0

No doubt the flagship feature of iOS 8.1 is Apple Pay, which allows users of the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to use their devices as wireless wallets, both in-store and online.

Apple touts the service as the “wallet, without the wallet,” allowing its latest iPhone users to simply tap-and-pay through contactless payment technology.

Although slow to adopt near-field communications (NFC), Apple finally bit the bullet and included it in its latest smartphone line-up. It also works with its Touch ID fingerprint technology, adding an additional layer of security.

While NFC is not included in the latest iPads announced earlier this month, iPad users can still make online payments through Apple Pay.

Apple has partnered with hundreds of banks and more than 220,000 participating stores, including Duane Reade, Bloomingdales, McDonalds, and Whole Foods, with more landing in the coming months.  http://www.zdnet.com/apple-pay-new-features-roll-out-as-ios-8-1-released-for-iphones-ipads-7000034842/

A couple of days ago I reported about what was going on in Sweden and Ecuador related to digital money (see Sweden becoming cashless? A prelude to 666?), and the push by Apple seems to be a another step in that direction.

This is potentially prophetic as the Apostle John was told to write:

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 the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (Revelation 13:16-18)

The above was written over 1900 years ago. As I mentioned a couple of days ago, at the time it was written it would seem that there would be no way to stop/monitor buying and selling that Revelation 13:17 foretells. Now, as more and more financial transactions are, or are becoming, electronic, we are at the point that the vast majority of financial transactions can be monitored/controlled.

Who is 666?

Some have various ideas about 666 (see SDA/CCOG Differences: Two Horned Beast of Revelation and 666).

The first writing that have been found that suggests that a Roman is 666 was by Irenaeus, who claimed to have listened to Polycarp when he (Irenaeus) was a young man. Irenaeus wrote:

Then also Lateinos (LATEINOS) has the number six hundred and sixty-six; and it is a very probable [solution], this being the name of the last kingdom [of the four seen by Daniel] (Irenaeus. Adversus haereses, Book V, Chapter 30, Verse 3. Excerpted from Ante-Nicene Fathers, Volume 1. Edited by Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. American Edition, 1885. Online Edition Copyright © 2004 by K. Knight).

Here is some of what Herbert W. Armstrong explained about the number 666 discussed in Revelation 13:18,

The expression “the name of the beast, or the number of his name” makes plain that the number 666 is the number of the NAME OF THE KINGDOM OR EMPIRE. 6. The expression “it is the number of a man” must also count this number in the name of the king, or ruler, over the kingdom identified as the “BEAST.”… The Bible describes the symbol “woman” to mean a CHURCH. See II Cor. 11:2; Rev. 19:7; Eph. 5:23-27. On the other hand, “beast” is a symbol of a KINGDOM, or EMPIRE. The woman of the 17th chapter is described beyond possibility of doubt as the church which did reign over the kingdoms of the Holy Roman Empire. Let us be consistent. The beast of Revelation 13 is not the WOMAN who rode the beast — the beast is the GOVERNMENT, and the woman is the CHURCH. The beast of Revelation 13 is THE ROMAN EMPIRE!…

The founder and first king of Rome was ROMULUS. The Roman Empire was named after him. His name, the name of a MAN, also is the name of the KINGDOM. And every citizen in the kingdom bears the same name — a ROMAN. When John wrote this Revelation, telling us to COUNT the number of the Beast, he wrote in the GREEK language. Consequently, we should look for this name, and the number 666, in this language recognized in the BIBLE, not in the Latin. We are all familiar with the Roman numerals, where letters are used for numbers. All understand that I is 1, V is 5,X is 10, etc. But many do not know that the Greek language,in which the book of Revelation was written, also uses letters for numbers. In the Greek, the language in which Revelation was written, this name is “LATEINOS.” It signifies “Latin man” or“the name of Latium,” from which region the Romans derived their origin and their language. This word, too, signifies“ROMAN.” In the Greek, L is 30, A is 1, T is 300, E is 5, I is 10, N is 50, O is 70, S is 200. Count these figures. They count to exactly 666! It is indeed no coincidence that the name of the KINGDOM, its founder and first KING, and of each man in the kingdom, counts to exactly 666! Certainly THE BEAST stands identified! (Armstrong HW. Who is the Beast? pp. 14-16)

666 represents those that follow forms of false Christianity–but also symbolizes the beast of Revelation 13:1-10–the final leader of the Holy Roman Empire who will be ultimately influenced by a changed one in the Vatican (by way of a demon-influenced individual who the Bible calls the false prophet, Revelation 16:13, and who is probably an “antipope” in the sense that even Roman Catholics would consider a demon-influenced pontiff an antipope).

Specifically 666 is the number of the first beast in Revelation 13 as distinguished from the Antichrist, who is the second, the two-horned beast, in the same chapter. And as Revelation 13 shows, the two-horned beast works with, and promotes, the seven-headed (and ten-horned) first beast in that chapter.  The Bible clearly shows that the 666 power will have control over buying and selling.

This is NOT to say that the use of Apple Pay, of itself, is wrong.

Also, while Apple is not intentionally trying to set up ’666,’ the reality it has taken a step that seems to be aligning with properly understood biblical prophecy.  We are getting closer to the time when more financial controls will be in place–and many already are.

Turkey assist Kurds related to Kobani; Irish Times challenges effectiveness of USA bombing.

Monday, October 20th, 2014


An Islamic State Media Logo

COGwriter

Turkey is assisting the fight of the Kurds against the Islamic State in Kobani:

October 20, 2014

Turkey said on Monday it is helping Iraqi Kurds cross into Syria to aid Kurdish fighters in Kobani as they battle to hold off an advance by Islamic State militants, while the U.S. airdropped arms and medical supplies for the first time to help the Kurdish defenders.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters on Monday, “We are assisting peshmerga forces to cross into Kobani,” but did not provide additional details.

The U.S. Central Command said three C-130 aircraft carried out multiple successful airdrops of supplies on Sunday in the vicinity of Kobani, including small-arms weapons provided by Iraqi Kurdish authorities.

A Turkish foreign ministry official said on Monday that Turkish airspace was not used during the airdrops carried out by the United States.

The moves come a day after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country would not arm the Kurdish fighters, calling them “equal” to the Kurdistan Workers Party that both Turkey and the U.S. consider a terrorist group.

Senior officials told reporters that U.S. President Barack Obama notified Erdogan during a conversation Saturday that the military would carry out the airdrops.

The action could strain U.S.-Turkish relations.

The “first-of-its-kind” supply mission also came as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was in Jakarta trying to enlist Southeast Asian leaders in what one U.S. official called the global “effort to combat violent extremism.”  http://www.voanews.com/content/us-military-airdrops-weapons-medical-supplies-to-kurds-in-kobani/2489341.html

Turkey remains generally more concerned about the Kurds than the Islamic State (also known as ISIL), but also has to try to keep its connections decent with the West.

A report from the Irish Times is questioning the bombing by the USA of Islamic State positions and is pointing out ‘spiritual’ objectives and issues:

Islamic State is a cult that cannot be bombed out of existence

October 20, 2014

US secretary of state John Kerry denies that the bombing campaign against Islamic State fighters in and around the small, dusty Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani near the Turkish border defines coalition strategy. He argues the primary focus of the US military is on Iraq, but his words are belied by targets currently under attack.

US aircraft have carried out dozens of strikes on Islamic State units at Kobani but no air action has been taken as fighters have skirmished with Iraqi forces around Ramadi, an hour’s drive from Baghdad.

Half held by Islamic State, Ramadi is the capital of strategic Anbar province, bordering on Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

Ramadi is a far more important strategic objective than Kobani, but the US fears Kobani’s loss more because the battle is being played out on television screens across the world. Washington cannot suffer a propaganda defeat in Syria even though Islamic State forces advance in Iraq.

In one of his most oft-quoted maxims, Napoleon stated: “In war the spiritual is to the material as three to one.” The loss of Kobani would also be a major “spiritual” or moral defeat the US cannot afford in its faltering and one-dimensional bombing campaign against Islamic State.

More than military prowess, Islamic State relies on “spiritual” clout with adherents, admirers and, even, antagonists, for millions of Muslims living in failing states long for the purity and security of an “Islamic state”, even the version imposed by the brutal and narrow militia.

Islamic State is not just one of the host of insurgent groups fighting the Syrian and Iraqi governments. It is not a network, like al-Qaeda, not a movement, not an organisation. Islamic State is a cult which relies on the “spiritual” dimension to fire its fighters.

It is the world’s most well-organised and heavily armed cult, making it far more formidable than the entire range of militias involved in the struggle for Syria and Iraq. http://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/middle-east/islamic-state-is-a-cult-that-cannot-be-bombed-out-of-existence-1.1969151

Notice also the following:

In 2014, ISIL established the al-Hayat Media Center, which targets a Western audience and produces material in English, German, Russian and French (Wikipedia, viewed 10/20/14).

Islamic State wants to unite all Muslims into an Islamic caliphate, and clearly uses multiple forms of media to do so.  Of course, the main cause of problems that the world faces are spiritual, but the West is not offering real solutions for that.

The entire world needs the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of the Kingdom of God.

As far as the goal of an Islamic confederation that the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIL, then ISIS) has, the Bible shows that Arab and Turkish lands will unite in the future, but that this will not end well per Daniel 11:40-43 and Ezekiel 30:2-8.

This DOES NOT mean that the current group calling itself the Islamic State will lead it, but only that the goal of a confederation of the predominantly Arabic lands is coming.

In that sense, the USA will also lose that ‘spiritual’ part of this war.

The Continuing Church of God is pleased to announce our latest video on our Bible New Prophecy YouTube channel:

The World Health Organization says the Ebola epidemic is the most severe acute public health emergency seen in modern times and kills 71% who contract it. What does the United Nations say? Is Ebola a pestilence related to the four horsemen of the apocalypse? Is a questionable prediction that all humans will die from infection in 2016 possible?

Sweden becoming cashless? A prelude to 666?

Saturday, October 18th, 2014


Logo of Sweden’s Central Bank (själv laddat upp)

COGwriter

A reader sent me a link to the following:

Sweden Is Going To Be The First Country In The World Completely Free Of Cash

A new report shows that four out of five purchases in Sweden are paid for electronically or by card.

The Local reports Swedes are using electronic payments 260 times per person, per year… While going cash-free comes with an increase in security costs, it’s more than offset by the drop in cash-handling costs. In Sweden, cash-handling costs are estimated to be around $1.2 billion, or 0.3% of the country’s GDP.

And according to the Swedish Bankers’ Association, armed robbers are finding themselves out of a job. Just five bank robberies were reported in 2012, Sweden’s lowest rate in 30 years.

Despite the trend towards a completely cash-free society, a Sifo survey showed that letting go entirely could be a drawn out process.

Two out of three Swedes still believe that cash in the hand is a basic human right, while associate professor of industrial dynamics Niklas Arvidsson told The Local it could take up to the year 2030 for physical money to disappear from Sweden’s system altogether. http://www.businessinsider.com.au/sweden-is-already-four-fifths-of-the-way-to-becoming-a-genuine-cashless-society-2014-10#ixzz3GV8vReYA

The reader that sent this mentioned that the Bible prophecies something to this effect.  Notice what the Apostle John was told to write:

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 the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (Revelation 13:16-18)

The above was written over 1900 years ago.  At the time it was written it would seem that there would be no way to stop/monitor buying and selling that Revelation 13:17 foretells.  Now, as more and more financial transactions are electronic, we are at the point that the vast majority of financial transactions can be monitored/controlled in some nations, like Sweden.

Sweden itself is part of the European Union as well as a descendant of one of the tribes of Israel (reportedly Naphtali , see also Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).  The Bible teaches that it will be a European power that is 666 and will enforce what is prophesied in Revelation 13:16-18.

That being said, there will be a place for more than electronic currencies.  The time will come that problems and debt of the USA will trigger its economic collapse (Habakkuk 2:6-8) and military conquest (Daniel 11:39).

Because much of the world has used the USA dollar for decades as the international/trading/reserve currency, after the USA dollar collapses people will be hesitant to accept another ‘fiat’ currency (one with no real backing).  This may be one of the reasons that the Bible prophecies that the European Beast King of the North power (Daniel 11:40) will take “the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt” (Daniel 11:43).

Notice also something about Ecuador:

The Ecuadorean government has released more details of its plans to create what it calls the world’s first digital currency issued by a central bank.

Central bank officials say the electronic money, as yet unnamed, will start circulating in December.

The new money will be used alongside the existing currency in Ecuador, the US dollar.

President Rafael Correa has said the digital currency will help those who cannot afford traditional banking.

Central bank officials say the electronic money will be used to pay government bureaucrats in a “hygienic manner”.

The electronic currency is also designed to help poorer Ecuadoreans make and receive payments using mobile phone technology. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-28992589

While we are seeing the trend for the governments around the world to more fully control buying and selling, the Bible also indicates in several places that all the wealth will NOT be electronic (cf. Revelation 18; Zechariah 14:14).

That being said, biblical skeptics should ask themselves how the Apostle John could have written about something that would not have been possible for nearly 2000 years AFTER he wrote about it.  Perhaps, I should also add that the Apostle John wrote of other matters (such as having a 200 million man army of Revelation 9:16) which also were not possible when he penned Revelation, but are now.

World events are aligning with properly understood biblical prophecy.
