Recent Significant World Events Line Up With Predictions Made in the Book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect


Because of radio interviews, I started to collect information on events that are aligning with predictions in my 2012 book.

The book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect was released the first week of September 2009 (and I essentially finished writing it in late June 2009).  Many world events have been reported to occur after the book was printed that align themselves with what the book is teaching.

1. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect teaches that the U.S. dollar will ultimately be worthless with another currency taking its place in the world (see Chapters 7-8 and Appendix B).

The Wall Street Journal reported that on September 7, 2009 a committee of the United Nations advised dropping the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency (Goldstein S. U.N. Panel Calls For Dollar Reserve Role To Be Eliminated.  Wall Street Journal Online, September 8, 2009.  While there had been scattered discussions of this before, this was the first time such an important multi-national panel specifically called for the elimination of the role of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

Others have agreed since then and many nations in the world are in the process of trying to develop a plan to eliminate the U.S. dollar’s reserve currency status (Nielsen B. Dollar Slump Persisting as Top Analysts See No Bottom.  Bloomberg,  November 23, 2009.  Many Arab nations have decided to try to establish their own currency to get away from the US dollar as the world reserve currency (Evans-Pritchard A. Gulf petro-powers to launch currency in latest threat to dollar hegemony.  Telegraph, December 16, 2009.

Replacement plans need to determined by many before the U.S. dollar is dropped completely.

2. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect explains that the Vatican will continue to expand its ecumenical policies and compromise in order to ultimately lure most of the Protestants and Orthodox into unity with the Church of Rome (see Chapter 3 & 10).

On October 20, 2009, CNN reported that the Vatican announced that it would allow Anglicans (and American Episcopalians) to become part of the Church of Rome without having to change much of their practices and rituals (Messia H. and Hanna J. Vatican welcomes Anglicans into Catholic Church.  CNN, October 20, 2009.

Yet, Pope Leo XIII declared in 1896, “ordinations carried out according to the Anglican rite have been, and are, absolutely null and utterly void” (Pope Leo XIII: On the Nullity of Anglican Orders, Apostolicae Curae, 1896. Modern History Sourcebook.–which means for the Vatican to now accept those baptized, etc. by Anglican priests as Roman Catholic shows that compromise has occurred.   The Vatican of the 21st century actually amended its constitution to accept the Anglicans.

On November 9, 2009, an Episcopal cleric explained how this would work and clearly stated that this allows for “the faculty to celebrate the Holy Eucharist and the other Sacraments … according to the liturgical books proper to the Anglican tradition” (Franklin. B. Vatican’s Apostolic Constitution explained.  Episcopal Life Online, November 9, 2009.  And much more compromised is expected.

3. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect clearly warns that a major united European power will rise up (see Chapter 5).

Although the Irish people had voted against the Lisbon Treaty in June 2008, in October 2009 20% more changed their mind and voted in favor of it (McDonald H.  Ireland votes yes to Lisbon treaty. The Guardian, October 3, 2009. ).

The Washington Post reported that on November 3, 2009, Czech President Vaclav Klaus was the last leader from 27 European nations to sign the Lisbon Treaty.  President Klaus, who was opposed to signing it, after doing so stated that this would eliminate the sovereignty of the Czech Republic as the Treaty forms a European supranational state (Janicek H.  Czech leader gives in, signs new E.U. charter.  Washington Post, Associated Press.  November 4, 2009.

The European nations became part of the new empire called for the European Union on December 1, 2009 (EU Constitution Comes into Force.  Voice of America,  December 1, 2009.

But many in America did not notice it as the Wall Street Journal stated, “Like a tree falling in a forest with nobody around, the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty made barely a sound on Tuesday.  And that was in Brussels.” [December 1, 2009] (Fidler S. EU Treaty Could Ease U.S. Effort on Mission.  Wall Street Journal, December 4, 2009.  Yet the same article indicated that this empire will develop much more power over time.  And it will.

Greece learned in early 2010 that it lost much of its economic sovereignty because of Article 126.9 of the Lisbon Treaty (Evans-Pritchard, A.  Greece loses EU voting power in blow to sovereignty.  Telegraph, February 16, 2010.  Over time, all the nations who remain in the EU will learn that they have retained even less sovereignty than they thought—and later they will give up even more.

4. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect warns that U.S. President Obama will encourage the rise of a European power to the ultimate peril of the U.S.A. (see Chapter 8).

On October 15, 2009 it was reported that Czech President Vaclav Klaus was the lone EU leader still opposed to the Lisbon Treaty (Waterfield B. Czech President Vaclav Klaus ‘to continue’ lone resistance to Lisbon Treaty.  Telegraph, October 15, 2009.

The Obama administration worked to get the Lisbon Treaty approved as President Obama “wants a strong and united Europe” (Source: Baldwin T, Reid T., Coates S. Obama Administration worried about Cameron effect in Europe.  The Times, October 21, 2009.

On October 23, 2009, US Vice President Joseph Biden visited the Czech Republic and gave it security reassurances (U.S. foreign policy aware of threats – Havel after meeting Biden.  CTK, October 23, 2009.  This could have possibly had some limited influence on some of the Czech leadership, as the Lisbon Treaty was signed two weeks after that visit.

On November 3, 2009, Agence France Presse (AFP) reported that USA President Barack Obama publicly expressed his support for the Czech President’s signing of the Lisbon Treaty and for now having a  ‘strengthened’ EU (Obama welcomes ‘strengthened’ EU. AFP, November 3, 2009.

5. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect teaches that a peace deal involving the Middle East with confirmation from a European leader must come to pass (see Chapters 5 & 8).

It was reported on November 5, 2009 that a deal involving the USA, EU, and Russia with the Middle East is something that Mrs. Clinton has tried to keep secret (Source: Hillary Clinton gives Obama’s Middle East game away.  WSWS., November 5, 2009.

On November 13, 2009, Voice of America reported that French President Sarkozy held meetings with Middle Eastern leaders for some type of peace deal (Byrant L. Sarkozy Leads Charge in Reinvigorating Stalled Mideast Peace Talks.  Voice of America,  November 13, 2009.

The EU foreign ministers insisted on parts of a future European Middle East peace plan on December 8, 2009 (Schaeder B., Corder M. EU: Jerusalem Should Be Joint Capital. New York Times,  December 8, 2009.

6. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect explains that once the U.S. dollar is worthless, the European replacement currency will find it useful to greatly increase gold reserves to restore confidence in paper currencies (see Appendix B).

After the India bought 200 metric tons of gold bullion from the IMF, financial traders and others reported that gold is now being considered to be part of the world’s reserve currency (India, China and Gold.  Seeking Alpha, November 5, 2009.; Krishnan R. There’s a long-term case for non-dollar assets.  Live Mint, November 6, 2009.

According to a November 14, 2009 story at the Center for Research on Globalization, it appears that a new currency with gold backing may be what will replace the U.S. dollar.  Specifically the story states that “the new currency will have gold backing” (Chapman B. A financial system which has almost exclusively benefited the wealthy.  CGR, November 14, 2009.  Others have noticed that gold is becoming a reserve for currency for various nations (Picerno J.  Should You Buy Gold Now? CBS,  December 9, 2009. Larkin N, Nguyen PD.  Gold Advances in New York on Demand for Alternative to Currency.  Bloomberg – Feb 17, 2010.

7. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect warns that there will likely be gaps in the U.S. G.P.S. system and this may require the U.S. to rely on the upcoming European Galileo system (essentially an upgraded and European version of G.P.S) to meet that gap (see Chapter 5).

The U.S. Air Force disputed the idea of gaps in military satellite communications (Source: Air Force Official Disputes GAO Report on Projected GPS Failure.  Satellite Today, May 26, 2009., when that portion of the book was written.

But, on November 10, 2009, Aviation Week reported that the leader of U.S. Strategic Command, Air Force Gen. Kevin Chilton, “says so few satellites are in queue now for launch for critical missions–such as weather observation satcom or ballistic missile warning–that there is a risk of service gaps that could impede the military’s ability to do its job” (Butler A.  U.S. Satellite Coverage Gaps Loom.  Aviation Week,  November 10, 2009.

Furthermore, because of concerns about China, Reuters reported on February 4, 2010, “The U.S. Defense Department is linking its Global Positioning System with Europe’s Galileo, another space-based global navigation satellite system. GPS will feature a new military signal called M-code to boost anti-jamming, facilitate secure access and increase the local signal strength.” (Wolf J. US, wary of China, mulls satellite substitutes.  Reuters, February 4, 2010.  This linking will essentially guarantee that the USA will have a portion of their military response ability controlled by the Europeans.  Galileo initially had critics as there were “early objections from the Americans who thought a rival system to GPS might be used to attack its armed forces” (Amos J. EU awards Galileo satellite-navigation contracts.  BBC, Jan 7, 2010 .  The problems with GPS combined with the fact that the first non-American, French General became one of the two “Supreme Commanders” for NATO on September 10, 2009 (French General Takes Over Key NATO Command In U.S.  RTT News, September 10, 2009. means that the Europeans will have much more control over the military over the USA than most have imagined.

8. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect warns that the Large Hadron Collider, which was not even functional when the book came out, would likely develop technologies to be used militarily  by the coming European power.

On November 22, 2009, it was reported by the BBC that the Large Hadron Collider was now functional and was now providing useful technology for the Europeans (Rincon P. Large Hadron Collider progress delights researchers.  BBC, November 22, 2009.

On November 30, 2009, the Large Hadron Collider set a new world record, “the $8-billion collider located on the Franco-Swiss border successfully accelerated the machine’s twin beams of protons to 1.18 trillion electron volts Monday. That surpasses the previous collider record of 0.98 trillion electron volts, set in 2001 by America’s Tevatron collider, located at Fermilab outside Chicago…The collider isn’t even at full power yet.” (Johnson J.  Large Hadron Collider roars to life.  Los Angeles Times, December 1, 2009.,0,7338976.story).  The New York Times reported that with its November and December  2009 results that its “spinoffs will invigorate the careers and labs in Europe, not the United States (Overbye D. Collider Sets Record, and Europe Takes U.S.’s Lead.  New York Times, December 9, 2009.

And even though it will run into technical problems sometimes, it is highly likely that the Large Hadron Collider will spin off significant military technology as 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect suggests.

9. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect warns that the USA will continue to greatly increase its debt (see Chapter 8).

The USA national debt clock registered 9.2 trillion dollars in April 2008, was 11 trillion in July 2009.

On February 12, 2010, President Obama signed a bill raising the USA debt ceiling to $14.3 trillion (

This debt may impact defense spending (Debt Ceiling Issue Complicates Action on Defense Spending Bill.  CQ Politics, December 10, 2009. as warned in Chapter 8 of 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.

10. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect warns that “for the daily sacrifices to stop, they will have had to start” (Appendix B).

And for the sacrifices to start, while a temple is not biblically required for that (Ezra 3:6), a sacrificial altar is (Ezra 3:2-3).  December 25, 2009, it was reported that the Temple Institute announced that it finished building a sacrificial altar (Ronen G. Model Altar of Unhewn Stones Completed at Temple Institute.  Israeli National News, December 25, 2009.

Concluding Comments

Major world sources reported (though have often not emphasized) many of these significant events.  Most of the public has NOT learned how these events align with end time prophecies and predictions.  But none of these events should have been a surprise for those who have read and understood 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.  Even President Obama’s November 2009 troop increases to Afghanistan were mentioned as expected in chapters 3 and 8 of 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.

Prophecies are coming to pass and the groundwork is being shown in significant world events.  Those who consider themselves Christians should heed Jesus’ and the Apostle Paul’s admonitions to watch world events.  Christians and non-Christians should ponder that since some predicted events are coming to pass, that it is highly likely that others will as well.

If world prophecies over the past 3,000 years are coming to pass, perhaps all may wish to understand them and the aligning world events.  Those who know can help themselves and their loved ones.
