World events aligning with 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect


While this page has reported about past, present, and soon-to-be false prophets, it is not that I do not believe that biblical prophecies will not come to pass.  At the COGwriter news page, world events are often reported that align themselves with end-time Bible prophecy.

When I wrote the book , 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, my primary focus was on what would likely happen during the years 2012 through 2020.  But of course, for many of the events to occur, other world events need to align themselves for them to come to pass.

Back in November 2009, it started to become apparent that several world events that aligned themselves with the predictions discussed in 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect were starting to come to pass.

The book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect was released in early September 2009, and today, perhaps a brief review of five noticed world events that align with the book should be mentioned.

1. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect teaches that the U.S. dollar will ultimately be worthless with another currency (with European involvement and/or control) 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.

“Gulf Arabs are planning—along with China, Russia, Japan and France—to end dollar dealings for oil, moving instead to a basket of currencies including the Japanese yen and Chinese yuan, the euro, gold and a new, unified currency… The current deadline for the currency transition is 2018” (Fisk R.  The demise of the dollar. The Independent, 6 October 2009; see also (Evans-Pritchard A. Gulf petro-powers to launch currency in latest threat to dollar hegemony.  Telegraph, December 16, 2009.

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.

“Speaking of Europe, the major powers there are moving toward a post-dollar world” (Browne J. Suiting Up for a Post-Dollar World.  Euro Pacific Capital, June 26, 2010.

The United Nations made a stronger recommendation to drop the dollar as the primary basis of the world trade in June 2010 (Charbonneau L. Scrap dollar as sole reserve currency: U.N. report.  Reuters, June 29, 2010.

On July 9, 2010, CNN reported, “A new report from Morgan Stanley analyst Emma Lawson confirms what many had suspected: the dollar is firmly on its way to losing its status as the reserve currency of the world.” (Moore HN.  Central banks start to abandon the U.S. dollar.  CNN, July 9, 2010.  http://wallstreet.

In October 2010, Simon Derrick at Bank of New York Mellon said, “The euro is the only real alternative to the dollar as a reserve currency” (Graham P, Oliver C. Currency race that everyone is trying to lose.  Financial Times, October 12, 2010.

The November 3, 2010 announcement for more “quantitative easing” by the US Federal Reserve will hurt the dollar as “Quantitative Easing Threatens The Status Of The Dollar As The World Reserve Currency” (Snyder M. 9 Reasons Why Quantitative Easing Is Bad for the U.S. Economy.  Seeking Alpha, November 4, 2010.

Events are lining up for the U.S. dollar to dropped.

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.

On April 27, 2010 it was reported that a top Vatican official admitted that changing the celibacy requirements for the priesthood was something it could look at (Donovan J. Vatican’s No. 2 Says Celibacy Not ‘Untouchable,’ TV3 Reports. Bloomberg – April 27, 2010.

On July 1, 2010, Kurt Koch was announced as president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.  His announcement was praised by the Russian Orthodox (Russian Orthodox Church welcomes appointment of Cardinal Kasper’s successor.  Catholic Culture, July 6, 2010.
), Lutherans (ELCA Presiding Bishop Greets New Roman Catholic Christian Unity Leader.  World Faith News, July 6, 2010.  http://www.wfn.
), and the World Council of Churches (Ecumenical welcome for Vatican’s new unity chief.  Ekklesia, July 1, 2010.   Kurt Koch was elevated to the rank of cardinal on October 20, 2010 (Simpson VL.  Pope names 24 new cardinals. Associated Press, October 20, 2010.

Much more ecumenical effort and compromise is expected (and with signs and lying wonders).

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. ).  This caused the Polish president, another who had opposed it, to sign as well—he had been holding off signing it for 557 days after it had passed in Poland’s parliament (Rettman A. Poland ratifies Lisbon Treaty as Czech cloud hangs overhead.  EU Observer, October 10, 2010.

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 with Herman Von Rompuy as its “first permanent president” (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 withnobody 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.

A European Union wide VAT (type of sales tax) was proposed on October 19, 2010 (Thomet L. EU proposes Europe-wide sales tax.  AFP, October 19, 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.

The New York Times reported that on May 10, 2010, President Obama called German Chancellor Merkel and told her that Europe needed an overwhelming financial rescue for the sake of its unity, and she apparently heeded that suggestion. (Erlanger S, Benhold K, Sanger D. Debt Aid Package for Europe Took Nudge From Washington. The New York Times, May 10, 2010.   (

The Obama Administration is supporting the rise of the European power.  And these steps help prove it.

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).

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.

Israel News reported on October 11, 2010 that Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Moratinos asserted that European participation in the Middle East peace process was vital (Cadares R.  Spanish FM: Europe has vital role in Middle East.  Israel News, October 11, 2010.,7340,L-3967643,00.html).  Jordan called for European participation the same day, thus the Europeans are now expected to be part of a Middle East peace deal (Habib R.  Jordan backs Europe role in Mideast after Israel snub.  AFP.  October 11, 2010.

The Europeans will be involved with some type of Middle East deal that will fulfill Daniel 9.
