Thailand-based Legacy Institute’s Leon Sexton latest newsletter reports about BRIC, Argentina, and an emerging New World Order:
I wrote to you about the financial crisis and the prophecies of the Bible that describe a “new financial world order” that is quickly emerging on the scene. The move to bring this about is ratcheting up, and more and more world leaders are actively adding their voices to the clamor. It is no longer just the major Western economic powers that are working toward a new order. Countries such as China, Russia, Argentina, Brazil, and India are getting involved. There is a powerful worldwide momentum building…
I periodically scan the Internet news services…Let me share some quotes with you.
“At the conclusion of the first BRIC summit on Tuesday, Brazil, Russia, India and China issued a joint statement calling for increased economic reform. The four nations, representing emerging economic powers, demanded that developing economies have a ‘greater voice and representation in international financial institutions.’ ”1
The nature of the world is shifting away from Western dominance. Here is one headline, again discussing the BRIC summit. “BRIC Summit calls for new global financial system.”2 The article goes on to say: “BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) yesterday ended their historic 1st summit saying the world needs a more diversified international monetary system that is less dependent on the dollar.”3
Did you get that? The cry for a new world currency to replace the US dollar is growing. More and more of the world’s nations and leaders are weighing in and making their voices heard.
A recent headline in the MercoPress announced: “Mrs. Kirchner will call at G20 for a new world financial order.”4 The article goes on to say: “Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner said on Sunday before Congress that the global financial crisis should provide momentum to change how the international financial system works . . . .”5
Even the Pope is adding his voice to the din. (Just before I sent this letter off to you, I received this Reuters news bulletin sent in by Teeka Glasgow, one of our editors.) “Pope Benedict called on Tuesday for a ‘world political authority’ to manage the global economy and for more government regulation of national economies to pull the world out of the current crisis and avoid a repeat.”6 The Pope made this call in an encyclical, the highest level of Papal writing, which indicates the importance of this issue to the Vatican…
The scriptures foretell a time coming soon when a New World Order will birth a New World Dictator! History will repeat itself.
The Bible indicates that the “New World Dictator” known scripturally as the future King of the North, 666, the Beast of Revelation 13 will be European as he is pictured as coming out of the Babylonian-Greco-Roman system. But the Bible also indicates that many nations (other than the USA and its Anglo-allies) will prosper from this “New World Order”.
As far as Leon Sexton’s comment about history repeating itself, while there is a certain truth there, there are also differences. Notice what Daniel was inspired to write and what Jesus stated:
19 “Then I wished to know the truth about the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze, which devoured, broke in pieces, and trampled the residue with its feet; 20 and the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn which came up, before which three fell, namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth which spoke pompous words, whose appearance was greater than his fellows. 21 I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, 22 until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom (Daniel 7:19-22).
21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened (Matthew 24:21-22).
The situation in the world and the reaction of many world leaders shows that the seeds for this system are being sown and soon it will rise up.

Two Horned Beast of Revelation and 666 The Living Church of God is NOT part of the Seventh-day Adventists. This article explains two prophetic differences, the trinity, differences in approaching doctrine, including Ellen White. It also explains who is 666.
Some Doctrines of Antichrist Are there any doctrines taught outside the Churches of God which can be considered as doctrines of antichrist? This article suggests at least three. It also provides information on 666 and the identity of “the false prophet”. Plus it shows that several Catholic writers seem to warn about an ecumenical antipope that will support heresy.
Who is the King of the North? Is there one? Do biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies point to the same leader? Should he be followed? Who will be the King of the North discussed in Daniel 11? Is a nuclear attack prophesied to happen to the English-speaking peoples of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand? When do the 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days (the time, times, and half a time) of Daniel 12 begin? When does the Bible show that economic collapse will affect the United States?
Europa, the Beast, and Revelation Where did Europe get its name? What might Europe have to do with the Book of Revelation? What about “the Beast”? What is ahead for Europe?
