I am hearing from multiple sources that September will be an interesting time to watch. Pastor Dana Coverstone’s dreams emphasized the month of September, but we should also note the recent developments in the metals market. The price of gold is well above $2000/oz now, and silver hit $29/oz yesterday on its way up to $50.
Bank of America is now forecasting $3000 for gold and $50 for silver in 2021, due to the fiscal policies of countries around the world, but especially in the USA.
The trillions of dollars being created and spent this year calls to mind the “helicopter money” that the former Fed chairman talked about years ago. He said if necessary they could drop money into the streets using a helicopter. It seems we have reached that day, although helicopters have proved to be unnecessary as well.
I hear that we are in the middle of “the great reset,” which is now a mainstream term being used by governments and high ranking officials around the world. The old monetary system has run its course and is in need of a new one. So they are doing what many people do when they face bankruptcy. They run up the credit card, knowing that it will never be paid off.
For this reason, we should not be overly concerned when the Fed creates trillions of dollars and spends it like a drunken sailor. We just need to be prepared for the collapse of the present system and its soon-coming replacement. At any rate, there is not much we, as individuals, can do about it. Others are making those decisions, and the more we know about it, the better we can prepare.
The old system came into being on August 15, 1971 when President Nixon took the USA off the gold standard “temporarily.” Very few “temporary” policies are really temporary.
They replaced the earlier Bretton Woods system (1944) with the petro-dollar (1973), shifting the monetary backing from gold to oil simply by directing the oil-producing countries to accept only US dollars in payment for oil.
At the same time, computers were being developed, and Alan Greenspan (later Fed chairman) wrote the computer codes for the banking system, since he was (at the time) the best computer programmer in the world. At the same time the old system of international payments was upgraded from a TELEX system to the SWIFT system in 1973.
At the time, the SWIFT system was a big improvement, but today it too is antiquated. It is slow and expensive, and it is now being replaced by blockchain technology using digital currencies. This new system is instant, efficient, secure, and very inexpensive. It was not possible until the internet had reached its present level of maturity.
However, this also means that paper currency transactions will be minimalized in a somewhat “cashless” system. Most transactions today are already cashless. Writing checks is cashless. Credit card purchases are cashless. Cash is only necessary for a few transactions, such as giving children allowances, garage sales, tips for the waitress, or, of course, purchasing drugs on the street.
We should understand this new system, because it is coming whether we like it or not. Its efficiency is good, but also, every transaction will be tracked. We will lose privacy, which is of great concern when we live under an oppressive government.
I believe, however, that the present Babylonian-style government is coming to an end and that we are entering a transitional form of government that will ultimately lead us into Kingdom government that is righteous and provides equal justice. My view, of course, is based on my belief that the “great tribulation” is not a 7-year period of Antichrist rule in the near future but is actually 7 x 360 years, beginning with the fall of Jerusalem in 604 B.C.
Daniel’s prophecies focused upon the first half of this tribulation (1260 years), while John’s prophecies in the Book of Revelation focused upon the last half of this tribulation. (See my commentaries on those books.) Those who understand the Historicist View of prophecy know that the beast empires have run their course and are ending. Those who believe the Futurist View of prophecy see a bleak future ahead, the rise of an Antichrist, and an oppressive system that is yet to come. The only hope of Futurists is that they might be raptured out of the earth before this horrible time arrives.
One’s view of prophecy makes a big difference in one’s perspective. The Futurist view cannot help but be fear-based, because they see the present chaos and turmoil as a precursor to the coming of the Antichrist and the tribulation. The result is that many Christians are taught to fear the future.
The Historicist view sees the present chaos as evidence of the fall of the Babylonian system and the overthrow of the antichrists who have been with us for thousands of years (1 John 2:18). If we hear and believe God’s word properly, we have faith, rather than fear (Romans 10:17).
Most Futurists believe that man is sovereign, having “free will.” This tends to make people afraid, because it puts the future of the world in the hands of evil men, while God wrings His hands on the sidelines hoping that He can save a few before the world is destroyed. We, however, who understand the sovereignty of God, know that the future of the world has never been outside of God’s control. He never gave man sovereignty but only authority, which is always subject to the sovereign God.
See my books: The Problem of Evil and Free Will vs. Ownership.
Dr. Charlie Ward has testified many times that he was told six years ago that the plan was to shut down the world economy. He did not really believe that report. He was told this again about two years ago, and again, he could not see how they could do such a thing. Then last December (2019) he was told that it would happen in 2020. In March of 2020 he was surprised at how easily they did this by using a coronavirus scare.
The point is that this is an engineered crisis, something that has been planned for many years. Six years ago was 2014, and this was two years before our 2016 election. The only real question was who was going to control this, and what would be the outcome.
Two sides are fighting over the outcome of this “great reset.” The traditional leaders of Mystery Babylon want to bring us into an oppressive system of totalitarianism in order to remain in control beyond their God-given mandate. Their chosen one was Hillary Clinton, who was supposed to lead us into their new oppressive system.
However, they were challenged by another group (called America First) who had a different plan. Their chosen one was Donald Trump, who has a long record of what we might call “Americanism.” Trump was interviewed many times in the past, even during the 1980’s, and he was always consistent in his view. Whether we like him or not, he is the figurehead of the second faction behind the scenes.
But regardless of men’s plans, God Himself has His own plan for the earth, and His plan will succeed. God uses both good and evil men for His purposes, and by studying the judgments of God in Scripture, we can know His plan as it is working out today. By studying the law and the principles of divine judgment upon nations, and by understanding the history of Israel and Judah and how God brought tribulation upon them for their lawless ways, and by understanding the time cycles of divine judgment, our faith can be increased and the fear factor reduced.
Here is where it is helpful to understand how the judgments of God are subject to time. If we understand the cycles of Cursed Time, Judged Time, and Blessed Time, and if we see how these judgment cycles have served God’s purpose over the millennia, we will know where we are in history and the outcome of God’s plan for the Kingdom. That is the value of having studied my book, Secrets of Time.
There is a lot to know and never enough time to learn. I can only suggest that you learn as much as you can, so that current events do not overwhelm your faith with fear. We need all the hope we can get, but real hope is based on truth. The outpouring of the Spirit that is coming, I believe, will be an outpouring of Truth and not merely of great miracles. That is what will be different from past revivals. I believe that this is why Jesus described the “Comforter” as being “the Spirit of truth” (John 14:17).
