"Yes, I am coming quickly." Amen.
Revelation 22:20

This is a Home Bible study. It exists to promote the Word of God as it's written, which means nothing added or taken away, and minus opinions.

The Bible is the only source of Divine Truth in the world today. Although it is helpful and informative in many ways, the Bible might not tell us everything we want to know but the Bible does tell us everything we need to know.

My role is to guide you through the Scriptures; to explain what this book says and in some cases what it does not say because this is just as important.

Ultimately, you have a decision to make concerning your salvation - no one can make it for you. The Lord Jesus Christ, the Creator God, has given everyone the ability to make choices - this is is called "Free Will." I pray you consider your choice wisely.

II Timothy 2:15

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.

Should We Be Expecting A Global Currency?

Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth
II Timothy 2:15

Revelation 6

 Should we be expecting a Global Currency Soon?

Thank you for taking the time to join us in the study of God’s Word.
I believe you’ll find that it is time well spent.

I want to begin right where we left off.
I ended the last lesson mentioning three specific things that will be appearing on the horizon at some time in the future.  To refresh our memories these are:

A one-world government, one-world currency, and a one-world religion

Before I get any further with this Bible lesson, just let me say it may seem (to some) that this particular Bible lesson has a political slant to it and that is not its purpose.

I am all about teaching the Bible.  Sometimes the two meet head to head.

Words have been recorded.
Deeds are now recorded.
Both of these are now a part of history.

If you have been paying attention to the national and the world news, especially during the last few years, then you have heard leaders of leading countries insisting on a “global currency.”  Right now the US dollar is and has been the benchmark (standard) since the end of WWII.  At that time in history, the USA was an economic powerhouse!

Today America is a debtor nation.  And this is one of the reasons why China and Russia are clamoring for a change.  The dollar is fading…

But the Euro is charging hard.   …Or is it?  Excuse me.
Is that Greece, Italy, and Spain I see on their financial knees?

Keep watch.  I believe we are seeing the beginnings of the “whittling down” of the EC to what will be the final count of ten.  This is the beginning of it.  These weaker nations (less financially secure for example) will be absorbed by the more stable countries as time goes on until we reach the number recorded for us in Revelation 13.

I hope you take the time to read the comments on some of these hyper links.
They reveal truths most Americans would rather not face about themselves.

In March 2009, due to the economic crisis, China pushed hard for a global currency.  China owns around a trillion dollars of America’s debt…maybe more.

But many nations own some or a part of America’s debt.

It is also true (today) countries and financiers are dumping American debt.

At the G20 summit meeting, April 2009, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev joined China in suggesting the creation of "a new reserve currency" to replace the US dollar.

Of course, your friend and mine, George Soros, has opined on this subject.

 What a guy.  And it’s no wonder Glenn Beck has tagged him with the moniker “Spooky Dude.”  Scary Stuff my friends.  Be not afraid of George of the concrete jungle.  It’s the banking elitist; or those who scurry around in the dark like cockroaches.  They are the real threat to our way of life, liberties, and freedoms.  Pay attention.  Be informed.
And most of all exercise your freedom to vote.

The United Nations has also offered its opinion on this subject as well.

Where’s is America’s leadership on this issue?
That’s a very good question.  I found this.  Thought I’d share.

But we are here to learn about the one-world (Global) currency.

Please open your Bible to Revelation chapter thirteen.
Nowhere in Scripture are you going to locate a phrase One-world currency.
It’s just not there.

This is one of those logical assumptions you pick up on as you study the book.

Not one of these three things, one world currency, one world government, or one world religion will occur until, I said UNTIL the anti-Christ makes himself known at the mid-point of the tribulation period some 3.5 years after it has begun.

The Beast from the Earth
Revelation 13
11: Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon.  (Here it is.  The anti-Christ; he’s the one world government.  This individual coming on the scene in verse eleven he is that 3rd part of the un-holy trinity i.e. the one-world religious system.  He will also appear at the mid-point of the tribulation.)

Skip to verse 16.
We’re going to come back to this material and go over it in detail later on.

16: And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, (That pretty much covers everyone on the planet) to be given (what) a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, (What’s the mark for?  Well for one thing it is to identify the individual as a believer in the false christ.  The other thing is this.  Without this mark you will not be able to buy, sell, or exist in the marketplace.  You cannot go to 7-11 to get a Slurpee without it.)
17: and he (what) provides that no one will be able to (what comes next) buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.

18: Here is wisdom.  Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man (the number of man in Scripture is 6); and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

As it so happens, these two issues (the political and the spiritual aspects) are so tightly entwined you cannot visit the two separately.  This is why I began this lesson by saying this is not a political piece.

You see, and I’ve mentioned this before, the world-stage is being set for God’s end-time tragedy to be played out.  Even though we as individuals make the decisions down here day in and day out, we are right where God wants us to be.  We are right on His time-line and we will always be on His time-line right up to the very end.

Currently, we live in the Age of Grace despite all the unpleasantness going on around us.  
In light of this truth, there is still time for people to “climb aboard” the faith train.

That trumpet blast could sound at any time.  Anytime!

But, I’m not talking about cheap “fire insurance.”
The pain, suffering, and death Jesus willingly went through wasn’t cheap.
I’m talking about faith, plus not-one-thing, in the gospel of YOUR salvation.
See 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.

This is a personnel decision.
This is a decision you must make.

There are two choices…two paths in this life.

One path leads to eternal joy and life with God and this is the way of faith.

The other path leads to eternal suffering and separation from God;
and this is the way of unbelief.

You either choose to believe that Jesus Christ died in your place, for your sins, was buried, and then rose again on the third day, according to the Scriptures; or you do not.

That’s it. 

I'd like to add this truth.

Just because your parents are people of faith doesn’t make you one too.
You are not born a Believer.

Just because you attend church with your family doesn’t make you a Believer.   

Let me put it this way.   
Will sitting in a garage for a few hours each week turn you into a Porsche?
I didn’t think so.  

Therefore, just because you agree to join your parents or friends in a church service on occasion will not automatically turn you into a Believer and/or a Christian.

Are you still with me on this?

If you have any doubts about your salvation, talk to someone you know and trust who has knowledge about such things.  If you wish to know more about becoming a person of faith, please get in touch with someone today…”for now is the hour of your salvation.”

If you wish, you may contact me; I will get back to you.

After the rapture of the Church Saints, I believe this will kick-start the end time program. 
 I do not believe this event is a part of the tribulation.

But the disappearance of millions of people around this planet, all at the same instant, is going to create an immense vacuum.  The difficulties caused by this event we can only speculate upon.  

Maybe this will be the catalyst that brings about the appearance of the son of perdition…could be.  Maybe the sudden disappearance of so many loved ones will bring millions of others to their knees and to their Bibles, pleading to God for their salvation.  I pray this is the case.

But the price for their salvation will be their lives.
