Legacy’s Leon Sexton, America, & Europe

Northern Thailand Tribal Girls


Last night I received the latest newsletter from Legacy Institute’s Leon Sexton (who is based in northern Thailand).   But before getting to the world news in it, he mentioned that he was recovering from personal health problems:

God has been merciful and I am making steady progress every day. Please continue praying that God will give me clear eyesight and that my right arm will return to normal particularly my finger dexterity – so that I can type again.

He also reported:

Bangkok’s English language newspapers entitled “CHINA EMERGING AS NEW POWER”15. Here are some quotes from that article:

“Are the days of the dollar as a currency reserve numbered?

“With US financial institutions seeking bail-outs with the federal government’s money, New York is losing its shine as the world’s financial centre. And along with the precipitate fall of New York, the US dollar is also losing its status as the de-facto international reserve currency.

“Last Tuesday, three days after the Asia-Europe Summit (Asem) in Beijing, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao headed to Russia on an official visit, where he shared strong misgivings about the US with Russian leaders.

“Wen raised two important points: developing countries should have a stronger say in a new financial system; and the global currency system should be diversified, a tactical way of saying the dollar’s role as anchor of the world’s reserve-currency system would have to diminish.”16

America’s days as the world’s financial center are clearly numbered as the U.S. dollar loses international support. And yet America is leading the world toward some sort of global financial entity that will control all financial institutions in the world and probably create a single world currency.

In a sermon on July 7, 1984, the late Herbert W. Armstrong reported:

And I can see now, the event that is going to trigger the formation of the reunification in Europe; the resurrection of the medieval Holy Roman Empire that we’ve been looking forward to that is prophesied to come…

But I believe that some event is going to happen suddenly just like out a blue sky that is going to shock the whole world and is going to cause the nations in Europe to realize they must unite! … Well now I think I can see what may be the very event that is going to trigger.., to that is the economic situation in the world

The whole banking structure in the United States is a network all jointed together. But not only that, one nation has to deal with other nations and imports and exports. And so they have to have a means of transforming money from one nation to another. And so the banking structure is international and interwoven…

Now when the financial structure breaks down, all civilization is going to break down…

It is latest weekly update, LCG reported:

EU Desires to Lead the World Financially. “After last week’s informal EU summit, European leaders stated that the EU would like to be a trail-blazer in overcoming the world’s financial crisis… The days of the dollar’s uncontested predominance are over, and it is about time that the Euro’s growing importance is reflected in the rules of the world’s financial exchanges, French President Sarkozy declared in the name of the EU… Berlin and Brussels are demanding that ‘No financial institution, no market segment and no jurisdiction must escape proportionate and adequate regulation or at least oversight’” (German-Foreign-Policy.com, November 10, 2008). The World Financial Summit will be held this Saturday, November 15, in Washington. Analysts expect heated rhetoric and an EU push that opposes Washington’s traditional stance on deregulation. Early in his presidency, Mr. Obama will likely face the decision to stand fast on traditional principles that have guaranteed American sovereignty, or to submit to European oversight in the name of world peace and prosperity. Mr. Obama’s pre-election speeches strongly suggest that he will give into world pressure to submit to new international financial rules, possibly overseen by the EU, “for the good of the world.” And, he will have the authority to change U.S. financial policy (Stratfor.com, November 5, 2008). As the U.S. falls deeper into the financial abyss, accentuated by its international debt, God’s prophecy rings truer and truer, “the borrower is servant to the lender” (Proverbs 22:7).

So, America is at a crossroads.

As mentioned before, because of his election, Barack Obama will be one of the last, if not the last, president of the United States.  Because of that, though he will try to do what he thinks is best, it will ultimately lead to the European superstate rising and becoming the major economic player in the world (cf.  Revelation 18:15-24).

Interestingly, the French President Sarkozy’s comments, declared in the name of the EU that “No financial institution, no market segment and no jurisdiction must escape proportionate and adequate regulation or at least oversight”, certainly seems to be a prelude to a government that wants to have complete control over all aspects of finance.

Recall that the Bible warns of a Beast power with such interest:

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).

Several articles of possibly related interest may include:
