A new global currency.

One of the things which has emerged from the recent G20 meeting is that there has been a clause which allows the IMF permission to issue S.D.R.s. (Special drawing rights)
China and Russia have repeatedly requested an alternative to the U.S Dollar as the reserve currency and the re-introduction of S.D.R.s is the first stage of that process
The S.D.R is operating in the same way as an international currency and although t is linked to the Dollar, Yen, Euro and Pound, it is outside the control of any of the member states.
This will inevitably further pressurise the already impoverished U.S. dollar and will likely accelerate the slide into dreaded hyper inflation.
China’s position in all this is to be watched carefully. they have held back from offering any more than a token amount to the 1.1 trillion bailout fund. However they have stated their willingness to offer a higher contribution on the acceptance of certain conditions.
Given that the bailout is destined to failure, we are going to be looking at a world currency reserve over which, China has an impressive hold.
Add to this, the fact that much of the U.S .s debt, is to China, and you can see how China’s emergence as a superpower is all but guaranteed.

God help us in the days to come.

In His love,
pete.

    You are right John. I agree. The technologies are not the problem, unless and until the governments in power tie into that technology to monitor us and bring us under their control. The use of the credit card is relatively safe today, but government and law enforcement can track a person’s where abouts by the use of them. If there are no alternative methods of payment, then control is complete. You can be traced and harassed by an ungodly government if they so chose. If you are marked as a Christian, and they seek to kill all Christians, they can find you all over the globe. Tracking devices are being advocated in vehicles that will tell the government how many miles you are driving so they can tax you. Also, GPS systems are installed in more and more vehicles for emergency purposes, but they have a much higher consequence if the government goes totalitarian.

    What impresses me most about the thought of the U.S. going communist, is that we have a wealthy society that is able to hand the government access to sensitive pieces of information which can be used to so much more thoroughly track and monitor our daily lives. There is becoming no where to hide.

    The problem with the centralization of currencies is that it brings the US Dollar to a powerless base. We are losing our national sovereignty, which is good if we are losing it to a Godly higher power, but we are not. We are forfeiting our Christian heritage and coming under the economic pressure of atheistic and amoral societies. Our union that was forged ‘under God’ is now being dissolved from under God’s grace. Read Ezekiel 16 and you will see what is happening to the United States. God is uncovering us before all our allies and enemies alike and we are coming into a time of great tribulation as our nakedness is exposed.

    The good news is, God will redeem us when we are ashamed of our ways and repent.

    SEzekiel 16

    Verse:13 Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom. And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD.

    :15 But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was. And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.

    :17 Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them, And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.

    :19 My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD. Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter, That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?

    :22 And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood. And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the Lord GOD;) That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made thee an high place in every street.

    :25 Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms. Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger.

    :27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way. Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied. Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith.

    :30 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman; In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire; But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!
    They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.
    Eze 16:34 And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.

    :35 Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD: Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them; Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.

    :38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy. And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare. They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords. And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.

    :42 So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry. Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord GOD: and thou shalt not commit this lewdness above all thine abominations.

    Eze 16:44 Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter. Thou art thy mother’s daughter, that lotheth her husband and her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which lothed their husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite. And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right hand, is Sodom and her daughters.
    Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways.

    :48 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters. Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

    :51 Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done. Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters.

    :53 When I shall bring again their captivity, the captivity of Sodom and her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then will I bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them: That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them.

    :55 When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate. For thy sister Sodom was not mentioned by thy mouth in the day of thy pride, Before thy wickedness was discovered, as at the time of thy reproach of the daughters of Syria, and all that are round about her, the daughters of the Philistines, which despise thee round about.

    :58 Thou hast borne thy lewdness and thine abominations, saith the LORD. For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant. Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.

    :61 Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant. And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD: That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.

    Blessings and Peace,
    Timothy

  2. And this is eschatologically significant in relation to which specific Scripture(s?

    Over-centralization of power isn’t desirable. Diversity helps prevent totalitarianism. For example, Communist rebels in the Philippines, unlike in Vietnam, were thwarted by the sea (the Philippines has over 7,000 islands). Diversity of languages is another safeguard against totalitarianism. It’s safer that nations maintain their independance.

    But at the same time, Christians shouldn’t be reluctant to make uses of helpful advances such as advances in monetary systems or advances in transport systems. For example, I remember when the plastic card was first issued – preachers said it was the mark of the Beast. But today most preachers in Western countries use one!

    Even in the futurist eschatological model, the man of lawlessness (even if he is the same identity as the Beast), cannot be revealed until the restrainer is removed: he isn’t going to be revealed as the climax of an eschalation of world events. In other words, we can embrace and even instigate current advances in monetary and transport systems, for the sake of the spread of the Gospel.
