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.

Tension Between Israel & Iran Rising

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 2, 2021 by paulthepoke

On July 29th, 2021, a suicide drone attacked an Israeli owned ship the Mercer Street. The attack occurred off of the coast of Oman. The oil tanker was empty. The ship was able to make it to safety with a United States Naval escort.

Various reports indicate the Shahed 136 Drone is the vehicle utilized for the attack.

Israel, along with the United Kingdom and the United States, is convinced Iran is responsible for the attack on the Mercer Street vessel. Israeli Prime Minister Bennett’s comments are noted in the tweet below. His video comments are a little over one minute and worth every second. I don’t understand Hebrew, but I do understand tone and body language. Based on Bennett’s history of a no nonsense approach to the enemies of Israel, I suspect Prime Minister Bennett means business.

The government of the United Kingdom held a special Cobra Meeting per a report from Sky News. A Cobra Meeting is held in only “serious focus” of an issue.

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab blamed Iran and stated the event as “deliberate, targeted” assault which constituted “a clear violation of international law”.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson indicated Iran will “face up to the consequences”.

Johnson was also quoted, “This was clearly an unacceptable and outrageous attack on commercial shipping, a UK national died.”

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken has weighed in on the events. He is confident Iran is responsible for the attack.

“We are in very close contact, in coordination, with the United Kingdom, Israel, Romania and other countries. And there will be a collective response. We have seen a series of actions taken by Iran over many months, including against shipping, so I’m not sure that this particular action is anything new or augurs anything one way or another for the new government. But what it does say is that Iran continues to act with tremendous irresponsibility.” -US Secretary of State Antony Blinken

As of Tuesday, August 3, 2021, Iran will be swearing in their new president Ebrahim Raisi. He is known as the Tehran Butcher. The name was earned as thousands of political prisoners died at the decisions of the “death committee” which he was the leader. Human rights organizations have charged Raisi with “war crimes against humanity.”

Raisi is a fundamental, conservative Shia hardliner. Previously, he was the chief justice of the Iranian judicial system.

Buckle up…

Burden of Damascus??? Trump Orders Strike on Syria, April 2018

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Ezekiel 38-39, Gospel, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2018 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 17:1 The oracle concerning Damascus. “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin.

Jeremiah 49:27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall devour the strongholds of Ben-hadad.

April 13, 2018: United States President Donald Trump has ordered a military strike against Syria. In coordination with France and the United Kingdom, precision missiles have been fired at military targets throughout Damascus and the country of Syria. The military intervention is in response to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against people in his country. This is a developing story…

See video link below for geography and detail of military strikes.

 

The statement below is from Anatoly Antonov, Russian Ambassador to the United States. See the tweet below.

Is this the beginning of the fulfillment of a prophecy written by Isaiah and Jeremiah? If so, Jesus Christ is at the door and He is knocking.

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures…

Please search your heart. One way or another, we are running out of time.
