We like every week to bring what we call a Prophecy Update. We show how news and trends in the world are corroborating centuries-old prophecies found in the Bible.
The Bible predicts that a global government will be established on earth in the last days. This being the case, any movement towards a global government, or talk of greater global cooperation, peaks our interest.
In the last year or so there has been a movement towards establishing a global currency. The latest news come from Britain’s prime minister, Gordon Brown.
On February 19th Reuters UK ran a story on their website titled, PM wants global constitution for financial system. ((http://uk.reuters.com/article/idUKTRE61I23320100219?feedType=RSS&feedName=businessNews&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+Reuters/UKBusinessNews+%28News+/+UK+/+Business+News%29&utm_content=Google+Reader))
Prime Minister Gordon Brown called on Friday for a world constitution to regulate the financial system and said he hoped for agreement on a range of regulation issues at G8 and G20 meetings in coming months.
Speaking at an international conference on progressive politics, Brown also said now was not the time to put a fragile economic recovery at risk by withdrawing fiscal support, but to make 2010 a year of growth. Brown said a global solution was required to transform financial services, which he defined as follows:
“Common rules for capital and liquidity, common standards for supervision, common rules for bonuses and a shared way of assessing the contribution banks should make to society, free of the unfair and disproportionate use of regulatory and tax havens which penalize countries doing the right things.”
Back in September of 2009 the United Nations,
Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has said the system of currencies and capital rules which binds the world economy is not working properly, and was largely responsible for the financial and economic crises.
It added that the present system, under which the dollar acts as the world’s reserve currency, should be subject to a wholesale reconsideration. ((http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/currency/6152204/UN-wants-new-global-currency-to-replace-dollar.html))
In March of 2009 China was calling for the creation of a new global currency to replace the dollar. ((http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/03/23/china-takes-aim-dollar-urges-new-global-currency/))
In late March 2009 US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner confessed that he had not read the plans by China’s central bank governor for a “super- sovereign reserve currency” run by the International Monetary Fund, but nevertheless let slip that Washington was “open” to the idea. China’s suggestion is backed by Russia, Brazil, and India (among others).
In 2008, the European Union was calling for a global currency. ((http://www.infowars.com/eu-leaders-call-for-global-currency/))
Also along the lines of globalism, a website called Deutsche World on February 26th posted the following:
The 24-strong bloc of Latin American states known as the Rio Group is to join the Caribbean Community to form a new trade body intended to present opposition to US dominance. ((http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,,5293667,00.html?maca=en-rss-en-all-1573-rdf))
And then there was this article on FoxNews.com, UN Still Pushing For Green World Order By 2012. ((http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/2010/February26/2692.html))
Despite the debacle of the failed Copenhagen climate change conference last December, the United Nations is pressing full speed ahead with a plan for a greatly expanded system of global environmental governance and for a multitrillion-dollar economic transfer scheme to ignite the creation of a “global green economy.”
Their analysis of the effort is that the UN is trying to establish “a global system of governance and what amounts to the next stage of a radical transformation of the world economic and social order, in the name of saving the planet.”
The move towards a global currency and eventually a global government is no surprise to evangelical Christians. We’ve see it in the Bible and now we see it being played out in the last days.
Get ready, stay ready, keep looking up.
Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
