On This Week in Prophecy… We have an operational update on the happenings in Ukraine. Russia is struggling to make gains. Ukraine continues to push the Russians out of their country. Russia has devastated utility services within Ukraine. Missile strikes have rendered the majority of the country without electricity. Basic provisions such as heat and water are being hit hard. Winter is beginning to set in…

Ezekiel 38:3-6 and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. And I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great host, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords. Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

Turkey and Iran have discovered something they both have in common. They both have declared war on “terrorists” as they see it, the Kurds.

Turkey wants to be an energy hub partnering with Moscow, and Iran is selling drones to Moscow. Economics ties Turkey and Iran to Moscow. In this respect, they have a common policy, but not necessarily a policy that is solely anti-Kurdish. The end result is that Kurds are victims and pay the price for the Ankara-Tehran partnership.

Nahum 1:5 Mountains quake because of Him and the hills dissolve; indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence, the world and all the inhabitants in it.

Psalm 97:5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.

Micah 1:4 And the mountains will melt under him, and the valleys will split open, like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place.

Isaiah 24:1 Behold, the LORD lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants.

After a 38 year snooze, the world’s largest active volcano, Mauna Loa, has come to life in Hawaii. Fear not, the experts state there is nothing to worry about…

Area: 2,035 mi². Mauna Loa is 13,680 feet above sea level and more than 56,000 feet from its peak to its underwater base, according to USGS. Its volume is estimated to be some 18,000 cubic miles. -Google

Some locals have indicated they are watching a sacred, religious event. Altars have been constructed and sacrifices are being made near Mauna Loa.

Revelation 6:6 And I heard what sounded like a voice from among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine.”

The Dutch government is looking to purchase 3,000 farms and industrial polluters. Farmers are in the crosshairs for environmental violations. The crime, ammonia and nitrogen oxide emissions exceed EU law.

“For agricultural entrepreneurs, there will be a stopping scheme that will be as attractive as possible. For industrial peak polluters, we will get to work with a tailor-made approach and in tightening permits. After a year, we will see if this has achieved enough.” -Christianne van der Wal, Nitrogen Minister

So why is this a big deal? Netherlands is the second largest food exporter in the world behind the United States. Agriculture is over a 100 billion Euro business.

A friendly reminder, the composition of our atmosphere and the air we breathe is roughly 79% Nitrogen.

Revelation 13:16-17 And the second beast required all people small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, the name of the beast or the number of its name.

Momentum continues to build for a trackable one world currency. Add Brazil and India to the growing list of nations embracing digital currencies.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Brazil legalized cryptocurrencies as a means of payment.
  • India’s central bank is testing its digital currency in different cities.
  • Digital currencies could be potential drivers of financial stability in emerging economies.

Revelation 9:16 And the number of mounted troops was two hundred million; I heard their number.

Keep in mind, China currently has an estimated 300,000,000 citizens quarantined and/or in COVID camps.

The UK is leading the G7 into a new era of finance. Rishi has announced a joint task force between the Treasury and Bank of England to look into the potential of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).

It appears this tweet was published on October 14, 2021. Check out PM Sunak’s infomercial for Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC’s).

What Is a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC)?

Central bank digital currencies are digital tokens, similar to cryptocurrency, issued by a central bank. They are pegged to the value of that country’s fiat currency.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • A central bank digital currency is the digital form of a country’s fiat currency.
  • A CBDC is issued and regulated by a nation’s monetary authority or central bank.
  • CBDCs promote financial inclusion and simplify the implementation of monetary and fiscal policy.
  • As a centralized form of currency, they may not anonymize transactions as some cryptocurrencies do.
  • Many countries are exploring how CBDCs will affect their economies, existing financial networks, and stability.

Revelation 13:16-17 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.

Let me be clear. I am not suggesting Rishi Sunak is the antichrist. We do not even have a 10 nation federation on the scene. The two witnesses have not completed their ministry at the Third Temple which is yet to be built. And for the record, it is our position at PaulthePoke.com the seven year Tribulation has yet to begin. I think we are still waiting for the events in the throne room of Heaven of Revelation 4 to begin. The events descried in Revelation 13 are in the second half of the Tribulation during the reign of the antichrist.

But what is interesting… is the idea of a global currency and one world economic system which is observed in Revelation 13. The Bible tells us an economic system is coming that requires identification markings on the right hand or forehead to participate. Scripture is very clear and encompassing. “All” will have the mark or no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark.

CBDC’s will allow for every single economic transaction to be traceable and accounted. There is no anonymity.

This is not a conspiracy. The G7 is publicly proclaiming their intent. Central banks and governments of the world are working together to make a CBDC system happen.
