As Greece suffers mass bank runs amidst a Euro Collapse, can a global financial collapse give rise to a ‘savior’ who the bible describes as an Anti-Christ?
We live in interesting times indeed. The way of life most of us have known for the last 70 years, is rapidly ending. America is being irrevocably damaged and weakened, with a rearrangement of the global powers to fill the void the very short anomaly of Christian Anglo power has occupied for half a millennia.
Beasts are rising on the world. Each has desires of global dominion to rule with iron fisted brutality on what nations and peoples they see as inferior.
Islam sees their time is at hand to establish a global caliphate. Marxists and Communists see that their time to crush Capitalism and establish global Communism is at hand. Germany is positioning themselves to become Europe’s economic landlord.
And while all this is going on to a seemingly oblivious secular people, Christians who have some familiarity with scripture are asking themselves if “This is it”? Is this the end of the Age? The time of the end? The return of Christ? The beginning of the Great Tribulation? Or at minimum the rise of the anti-Christ?
Certainly it does not take a prophet to forsee that what is transpiring will lead to the end of the Age of a prosperous American superpower. A time of the end of free market Capitalism. And what it harbors is a return of the world the way it prefers itself to be: a world of beastly empires of men, enforcing it’s caste of nobles and serfs upon all. Ushering in a time of tribulation and dark ages that may well set the stage for the rise of a singular authority and his confederation of nations to rule the globe.
The Ignorant Fisherman has an essay that poses some sobering questions about what is transpiring before us. While a good essay, this author differs in understanding in that it is not wise to set any dates for a Messianic return of our Lord (Matthew 24:36) or the subscription to the Rapture. Jesus said specifically in Matthew 24 that His followers would be hated and persecuted of all nations for His name’s sake, and there was no respite from martyring death for the Apostles. Why should Christians in this time be any different?
As the Marxist fist tightens into absolute oppression and despair, I often wonder whether the Christian body in America will hold onto their faith when they have bought into the notion that nothing bad will befall them or they will get zapped out of here before it all goes down, when their brothers and sisters in the 3rd world; in India, China and in Muslim counties are persecuted and killed for nothing more than their faith.
Will they do the same here when they begin to suffer the same fate Christians in the rest of the world are suffering?
Never in the history of the “global markets” has so much been at stake. Markets across the world are on the verge of utter collapse. This is not a hyper, over-the-top assessment or a pessimistic “doom and gloom” perspective. This is only the current reality that many do not want to face.
The current global markets are extremely volatile and highly unstable, reflecting doubt and pessimism about what the future holds in regard to their currencies. In view of the economic crisis in Greece, the Euro at present is tanking hard and is sending great panic and uncertainty throughout the world markets. These markets all affect each other like a “chain gang.” When one is thrown overboard, they all go with it.
“They are doing everything in their power to delay what they know in their hearts is coming, a worldwide global collapse of the markets and currencies”
The British pound is on the verge of being akin to toilet paper. The American dollar is weakening at alarming rates. The price of gold has skyrocketed to new all-time highs. The escalating price of gold shows that people are abandoning the currencies of the world while looking for a more sound financial investment that offers better security. What is most insane here is that many of the world leaders have their “heads in the sand” and are trying to be optimistic despite the sobering realities at hand. They are doing everything in their power to delay what they know in their hearts is coming, a worldwide global collapse of the markets and currencies. What is also devious is that somewhere – in the smoked-filled back rooms – are opportunists just waiting to fill the void that will be left after a global collapse with a seizure of absolute power and fascist control. The time honored principle holds that history always repeats itself and nothing is new under the sun (Eccl. 1:9).
The financial crisis in Greece is just a small microcosm of what is coming our way. As countries are spending and printing more currency than the worth it possesses, national debts are skyrocketing. The realities are dreadfully sobering. The present markets are so unstable that a significant crisis could send the markets into a freefall of doom. Just one key act of terrorism, just one key natural disaster, just one key global crisis will cause a chain reaction of panic and fear that will erupt into the world markets and propel them into a fatal tailspin which will bankrupt the world. How close have we actually been in avoiding these catalytic acts in America these last couple of years? (link)
Those Who Have Eyes to See
For the serious student of the Bible – especially those who study Biblical prophecy and end- time events – the table is fully set ….
… Sadly, as we are at the very doorstep of these events, the majority of world is absolutely oblivious to and clueless about what is to soon transpire. They remain comfortably numb in their delusional, narcissistic and subjective state of ignorance and feel optimistically secure and protected in their paper-walled houses as the world is about to go headlong off a cliff.
However, the Word of God states:
For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape (1 Thess. 5:2-3).
The Cause and The Effect
When the Dollar and Euro finally implode under the massive weight of debt, it will send a chain reaction throughout the global markets. Since the markets are all interwoven, they will go down like a house of cards. The world’s reaction will be that of absolute fear and panic. This fear and panic will send shock waves through the world’s investors, markets and traders causing even greater trauma and ruin. There are only two securities in this world that people can trust in. One is money (or mammon) and the other is the Person of Almighty God. An individual can only serve just one of them (Matt 6:24). Sadly, it is in the “almighty dollar” (and other currencies) that most of mankind puts its surety (trust) and hope. In the end money will never redeem our bankrupt souls. Only the precious blood of God’s Lamb can truly redeem us (Col 1:20). In the end the precious blood of the Lamb is the most vital security for both time and eternity.
With the peace and security of the world in great jeopardy and trouble and turmoil all around, the world’s inhabitants will be quite willing to turn over their rights, freedom and national sovereignty. They will hand over all authority to the one who promises to restore that which has been decimated. It is at this point that a world leader will arise in Europe to a place of prominence, and he will seek to restore prosperity by creating a new world order (Dan. 7:8, 20, 25; 9:25, 11:36-39; 2 Thess. 2:2-12; Rev. 6:1-2; 13). The climatic end result of this allegiance will be the “Mark of the Beast” Rev 13:16-18. /
I find this interesting, as at one time I also thought a Eurobeast would fill the biblical prophetic bill. I am not so sure at this point in history that this supposition is correct. A Beast is indeed rising, the vacuum the West leaves will be filled. But as it stands right now – unless Europe starts breeding like rabbits, the Muslim immigrants in their midst are going to overtake the natve populations. Simple numbers say that much of Europe is already undergoing Islamization. So if it is a Eurabia that rises, perhaps that may have some prophetic application, but I am somewhat doubtful a United Europe is going to fulfill this role that the American Christian Church has supposed for many decades in various church movements.
With war looming (Rev. 6:1-8) and global economic collapse at hand, the world’s masses will seek for one with all the solutions and answers to the crisis of all crises. They will be quite willing to turn over their liberties and freedoms in a desperate attempt to stabilize the world and salvage as much as they can to insure a “bright and hopeful” future. Little will they know that they in so doing will reap eternal consequences by giving their allegiance to him (Matt 24; Rev. 13, 14: 9-11).
The Master Puppet Master
Lucifer, the master Politian and original Fascist, knows all too well how the game is played. He has been practicing for a long time, waiting patiently for the precise moment to bring forth his master plan and global unity. That plan is global worship for himself (2 Thess. 2:3-4; Rev. 13:4, 8, 12) and global war against Almighty God (Dan. 7:25; Rev. 13:7; 16:13-16; 17:14a). ,
“As the world at this time is in fatalistic panic and dire need, Lucifer will provide them with his man of lawlessness, i.e., the Anti – Christ”. There is no greater way to grab power and install radical laws and ruthless policies than when a people and nation are at the very place of poverty and suffering. In this place they are consumed by their daily needs and are quite willing to even sell their souls to the devil for a piece of meat or a loaf of bread. As the world at this time is in fatalistic panic and dire need, Lucifer will provide them with his man of lawlessness, i.e., the Anti – Christ (Rev. 13). Since they have rejected natural laws and the eternal, righteous absolutes of Almighty God and His saving grace, the world’s inhabitants will be in a state of spiritual darkness and ripe for making a deal with the Devil himself to their doom and eternal ruin (Matt. 25:41). At this point man’s casual unbelief will be channeled and focused into a powerful laser beam of violence and absolute defiance against Almighty God and His program (2 Thess. 2:2-12).
Such events as we are seeing and witnessing today – including the pending global market collapse – are the ever increasing sounds of the steps of the soon coming Day of the Lord.
How Will You Spend Your Dollar? My friends, this life is but a dollar bill easily spent, giving but little satisfaction in doing so. We are here for just a brief moment, and then we are gone (Eccl. 1:1-3). To put “all of our eggs” into the temporal and doomed basket of this life is the height of insanity, rebellion and unbelief. Eternity is our future and we must all be ready for it on God’s terms, which are holiness and perfect righteousness. That righteousness is only found in Jesus Christ (Romans 10:2-4). , “This life is but a dollar bill easily spent, giving but little satisfaction in doing so”
As these darkening and difficult days come to a close and the morning lights are shining on the horizon of the Kingdom of Heaven, may you be sure to know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior! Your final destiny – and your ultimate destination – depends on your choice. Place your trust in Him today; you will never be the same!

It took them a long time. I was stupid not to realize the obvious fact. Here we are, finally, united in a new world order of happiness and a future so bright that I have to wear shades. For most people much like myself, we always thought it was the United States and the armed citizenry that stalled and prevented the establishment of this new order, both economic and political. Sadly us Americentric types focused on our nation as the center of the universe failed to see the big picture and I did not realize until tonight that it was not Presidents Bush and Obama that prevented the new order from taking hold. It was not the Tea Party, Republican Party or the Libertarian Party which obstructed the globalist regime. It was not Joe Redneck, Joe Six-Pack or Joe the Plumber that intimidated or slowed down the establishment of this order.
It was our friends in Europe.
And last night a shotgun wedding was performed, Miss America, meet your groom, the European Union.
The idea that the European Union needed $1 trillion to bail out Greece, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain is absurd. Even if all of that money was obtainable on the open markets or via fiat creation it does nothing to repair or restore the economic engine of hybrid Corporatist Statism, but does indicate the level of desperation that the powers in the West are willing to resort to in a last ditch effort to insure the expansion of and maintenance of their fortunes and power. Here we are, at the crux of another crisis and a “miracle” cure is found by creating more debt to service, not pay off, existing debt from various member nations who were resistant to the idea of a unified political structure. Ireland and the other PIIGS nations wanted no part of a unified Parliamentary structure for the EU with the ability to dictate law and settle on a series of Constitutionally mandated rights for the member nations. Yet here we are with those very nations who opposed such a regime surrendering their economic freedoms and in turn insuring such an animal will exist, a beast to America’s east.
Despite years of people calling others ‘tinfoil freaks’ of whom I have been guilty of that years and years ago, the conspiracy is not that nor has it been for two years now. The conspiracy has turned into a course of action where people are being deceived into believing that according to the leaders of the West, aka the United States and Europe, that there is no other choice if we wish to survive as a civilization. Common sense tells the informed citizen otherwise but the panic and hysteria created on an almost scheduled, regular basis, be it an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, financial crisis, war, or terrorist act keeps many citizens from understanding or realizing the activities being undertaken behind the scenes. How many people realize that the new financial reform package expands the powers of the Federal Reserve to the point of extra-Constitutional authorities not implied nor given to the Executive Branch as written within that damned piece of paper? How many people who run a small business now understand that starting in 2012 you have to give a 1099 to every vendor you purchase $600 or more from? How many citizens understand that Homeland Security is working with the Congress to create a standardized National Identification program under the guise of the Health Care legislation to provide the ability to monitor not just the consumption patterns of citizens but the transportation habits, domestic and international, of our citizens to enable further taxation due to the risks created by those who can afford to travel to and fro?
And that’s just the United States side of the equation. Once the European Parliament convenes when the dust settles and the last fire from the riots are extinguished, the Eurosheeple much like the Amerisheeple will begin to understand that gee, we really do have a lot in common and perhaps unifying our financial systems and legal systems would be a logical extension from where we are now. The fact that we just put their precious European Monetary Union into debt to the Federal Reserve via the currency swaps and the International Monetary Fund loan program does sort of entitle those who are in charge to demand concessions of the citizens to insure a guarantee of repayment and streamlining of operations now, doesn’t it?
The next wave of the now completed new order will be to unify financial and corporate regulatory regimes because we “have to” and thus with that logic our sovereign rights along with the individual participants within the EU will agree to do the same. Beyond that, the human rights campaigns masked by their Eurosocialist masters will demand we in turn surrender key freedoms and rights as provided by the Constitution to insure financial and corporate stability, thus leaving the American citizen with no voice because we will have none in this matter.
The end game arrived with little fanfare but as expected a warning shot across the bow of the world economies with the shock of last Thursday. The Untied States has a banking cartel which was already engaged to be married to their Eurosocialist brethren but the right trigger event was never created to insure that the “people” would cooperate in such an event. Americans, due to the demographic shift, will support any and all actions that guarantee their retirement accounts as large numbers of the Baby Boomer generation is more than happy to sell the rest of us out to insure a comfortable period of time from retirement to their death. The Eurosocialist want to protect their 32 hour work week with 12 weeks of vacation so they are willing to accept a more “diversified” society if the United States citizens are willing to pay for it, thus they will accept their new immigrants, their new laws, and their new compliance with a budding world council to manage their affairs because after all the “New World” is going to share in their pain.
Thus the table has been set. Elections are somewhat irrelevant in the United States after the 2010 mid-term election unless upwards of 50% of the incumbents are turned out at every level, be it dog catcher or Congressman. The path has been set upon not by a desperation to insure world peace, as many thought it would in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, but instead a dying desire to make sure they can retire with their surround sound DVD player and golf every Thursday with Bob at the community country club. The Greatest Generation, the ones who fought and died during World War II and endured the pains of the Great Depression of the 1930’s have finally given way. The Sellout Generation, their spawn, will insure world peace and stability for a generation to come.
By enslaving us all to the whims of a cartel of corporatist Marxists hell bent on a twisted Fascist world domination.
