CBCG on Christ’s Return, the Dollar’s Fall

In its monthly newsletter that was released this week, CBCG’s Fred Coutler wrote:

The Middle East is the focal point of man’s history and the return of Jesus Christ. In order for a world government to be set up for the final “Beast” to lead, the Moslem world will have to be sufficiently tamed and brought into the modern age. This will develop into an economic and political union of Arab states akin to the European Union. Events taking place in the Middle East today will ultimately lead to this key union—from which the prophetic “king of the south” will emerge.

Today is the Feast of Trumpets which pictures the trumpet blasts and the return of Christ.  Jesus will return, but since this happens at the “last trump” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52), this will not be until the end of the tribulation, thus those expecting a pre-tribulation rapture are in error.  An Arab-Moslem coalition is beginning to form and this will result in the emergence of the “king of the south”–and that, of course, will be before Jesus returns.

Furthermore, in that same letter, Fred Coulter continued with:

Because of massive national balance-of-trade debt, government debt (national, state and local), corporate debt and personal debt, the dollar is rapidly descending toward inevitable collapse. The evidence is obvious: inflationary prices, the collapse of the housing market, the rise in home mortgage foreclosures, etc. The dollar’s failure has been coming in stages through inflation which devalues its purchasing power. Consider this: Compared to the dollar of 1913—back before the Federal Reserve took over the American banking system—today’s dollar is only worth four cents. This means that a $500,000 home today is only worth $20,000 in 1913 dollars.

As these problems continue to grow, the American economy will experience a major fall—which will undoubtedly usher in the “Amero” as its replacement. The failure of the U.S. economy will be similar to the economic crisis faced by Argentina and Brazil from 1970 to the 1990s. However, as those nations recovered, we too will recover after a painful recession at best, or a deep depression at worse. Again, this will be God’s punishment for our national sins, and will advance the coming of Satan’s world government. While it is certainly not pleasant to read and hear about such things, we must not stick our heads in the sand or our eyes shut pretending that world evils will all somehow go away.

The prophecies of God are sure and will occur. Most people want the blessings of God—but they also want to be free to do whatever they please and continue to live in sin. When the curses of God come upon them for their sins, they get angry and wonder why. They fail to realize that half of the promises of God are blessings for righteousness, and half are curses and punishment for sins…

God prophesied of this thousands of years ago: “The stranger [foreigner] that is within you shall get up above you very high; and you shall come down very low. He shall lend to you, and you shall not lend to him: he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail…

“Moreover all these curses [from verse 15 on] shall come upon you, and shall pursue you, and overtake you, till you are destroyed; because you did not hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you: and they shall be upon you for a sign and for a wonder, and upon your seed for ever. Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things. Therefore you shall serve your enemies which the Lord shall send against you, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon your neck, until he has destroyed you” (Deut. 28:43-48).

The simplest definition of our entire relationship with God from His perspective is this: “Obey My voice.”

A couple of points.  The first is that while overall, the above, is correct, We need to love God and love our neighbor so that we can actually obey God’s voice.

The other is that while Bible prophecy is clear that the US and its British-descended allies will fall economically, whether or not the US comes up with a new dollar, like the “Amero”, is quite speculative.  When, and with what type of recessions, is also quite speculative.

But the fact is that today is the Feast of Trumpets, and those trumpet blasts in the Bible (such as the seven in Revelation) not only show hope and Christ’s return, but also show punishments to come.
