Weekly News Update / Jan. 21, 2011
We have been given unmistakable signs that would reveal to those who have the eyes to see, and ears to hear, that the end of the world is at hand. The majority of the world will continue leading their lives in the hypnotic trance that prevents them from understanding these signs; therefore this information is for the small remnant that are not deceived; the small remnant who are ‘watching and praying’, the small remnant who will not be overtaken as a thief in the night by the soon coming ‘End of the World’, and soon coming ‘Day of The Lord’.
The prophetic signs of the ‘End of the World’ may be divided into the following categories (Please review my series of articles titled ‘Is this the End of the World’ for the reasons why these categories are relevant and important. News reports that fit these categories have been linked and prophetic Biblical references have been provided to prove that these events are pointing to an imminent fulfillment of all ‘End of the World’ prophecies recorded in the pages of The Bible.
- In the following section, News reports have been grouped according to category (category headings have a red font and are highlighted in yellow). The heading has been linked to the original story and a brief synopsis has been provided. Information most relevant to the category or quotes from informed sources are in a bold red italicized font. My comments and observations are in italics below the original report. Please click on the link to read the full story and / or to watch videos if included in the story.
The end of the world as we know it must begin with a complete collapse of the Global economy. The following stories continue to confirm that that the pace of this collapse is accelerating in 2011. In my estimation, the clearest signal that the end is near will be the collapse of the US dollar, which will be signalled by countries scrambling to get rid of dollars and buy gold, or begin to do transactions between themselves in their own currencies. However the transition to a new reserve currency, as is being suggested by world leaders, prominently the Chinese, will not be an easy one, it will crush many of the third world countries through inflation, and decimate the middle class in developed, and developing countries. The elite rich, however, will end up richer than ever before.
From a prophetic viewpoint the collapse of the global economy will be the trigger that signals the beginning of the end of the world as we know it. In my estimation it will be the US dollar’s death knell as the world’s reserve currency that will be the clearest signal of all that the time of tribulation and sorrows has come upon this world. Such talk as heard from Chinese officials and leaders of other nations questioning the position of the US dollar on the world economic stage would have been unthinkable even 5 years ago.
All US dollar transactions must be cleared through New York, so anytime the US wants to impose ‘Sanctions’, as it has upon Iran, it simply stops processing US dollar transactions from the banks of these countries. By not using US dollars, nations can continue to do business with each other without US interference. The above story is an example of how nations are beginning to bypass the US dollar, which would have been unthinkable even 5 years ago. A similar News item, China, Russia quit dollar, came out recently in which it was reported that Russia and China had made a bilateral agreement to trade in each other’s currencies, once again bypassing the dollar. This phenomenon is sure to grow, and I believe it will begin to happen quite rapidly by the end of this year, so the collapse of the US dollar is all but certain, which in turn means a collapse of the Global Economy.
As noted by the author of this excellent article, the economies of the world are irrevocably tied to one another, this is a relatively new phenomenon that can be traced back to the 1970s when the European Common Market, and other Free Trade agreements were carved out that introduced the word ‘Globalism’ and the term ‘Global Village’ to the world. It is the interconnectedness of the world’s economies that has made it possible for the economy of every nation on Earth to fail simultaneously. Like dominoes, nations have begun to fall, and like rats felling a sinking ship, we will soon see a mad scramble by nations to try and save themselves by dumping their dollar reserves but it will be a case of too little, too late. A New Antichrist, mark of the beast economy will eventually emerge from the ashes of the present system but not before unprecedented havoc has been wreaked upon the world.
§ Famine / Food Shortages
In previous years, it was only the alternative media that was forecasting a developing Food crisis / catastrophe. As the above reports prove, this story, along with the weather, has now taken centre stage in world media reports. The situation is much more serious than it was in 2008. Actually in every respect the world situation is much more dire than it was in 2008. At best I would estimate that we have until the end of the year to prepare for things to get a whole lot worse. Food prices are going to skyrocket, so stocking up on essential and non – perishable foods would not be unwise.
§ Extreme Weather
The following 2 ABC News reports both used the word ‘EXTREME’ when reporting on the Weather / Climate disasters being felt around the world in 2011. I find it interesting that the mainstream media is beginning to use the same terminology that I have been using on this blog since 2009, and many other alternative media sources have been using a long before that. The word ‘EXTREME’ was rarely, if ever heard on MSM but was used frequently by myself and others over and over in relation to changing weather patterns. The Lord Jesus did warn us of ‘fearful sights’, of mega earthquakes, of waves of the sea roaring, of signs in the heavens, and signs on earth that are almost all related to climate and weather. So are these signs not a confirmation that we are fast approaching the days of the ‘beginning of sorrows’?
In all my life I have never heard of so many magnitude 7+ earthquakes as have occurred these past few years since 2000. The most prominent among them were the Indonesian quake of 2004 that caused the most catastrophic tsunami in modern history, and the Haiti earthquake of 2010. I believe that it will not be long before we begin to hear of multiple magnitude 8+ earthquakes all across the globe. The Chile earthquake of 2010 measured 8.3, a magnitude unheard of in modern history. Jesus did prophesy there would be ‘Earthquakes’ in diverse places before the end of the world. I am sure He was not referring to minor quakes that occur all the time but powerful quakes that will cause catastrophic damage to the planet and result in loss of life in the hundreds of thousands, if not in greater numbers.
§ Geo – Political Issues (War) & Internal Strife / Social Unrest
India and Pakistan both are nuclear powers and bitter enemies. Both these countries are bordered by China, also a nuclear power; nowhere else in the world do we have 3 nuclear powers bordering each other, and also home to nearly 3 billion people. Pakistan is an impoverished country, which is in dire straits due to massive flooding last year of its fertile food growing region. Inflation in India and China is causing massive internal social unrest due to food being priced out of reach for the poor majority in both countries. I reckon that it is only a matter of time before these 3 countries look to distract their populace from internal problems by focusing on an external enemy. It is near certainty that India and Pakistan will engage in a major war this decade; what roles China, The US and Russia will play in this conflict remains to be seen.
Wars and rumors of wars are prophesied to precede the beginning of the end of the world. Current reports of possible wars and civil unrest is only a preview of the much bigger and deadly wars that are yet in the future. Long before the major wars involving major world powers begin, there will be unprecedented social unrest, and even civil wars, brought on by the collapse of the Global Economy.
§ PANDEMIC NEWS
Not too much new News in the area of Pandemic reporting but we keep a close eye on what has been going on for quite some time now.
Britain flu deaths double / I include this story not for frivolous reasons but to take note that the H1N1 infection that was declared to a be a pandemic by The WHO has not been eradicated. Britain has seen a substantial outbreak of this virus and scientists keep warning that it is only a matter of time that the virus mutates into something extremely infectious and fatal.
