    The shadow of the coming Antichrist looms more ominously than ever.
    ~Terry James ~

    All one has to do is to consider the following report to see that dictatorship might be right around the proverbial corner. An Austrian newspaper reported the following result of a question posed to the citizenry of that nation: What about their opinion of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi annexation during World War II?

    Reuters Report May 21, 2013 "...Forty-two percent said life was not all bad under Hitler, while sixty-one percent said they would be interested in a strong-armed leader who did not have to deal with democratic challenges like political opponents and elections. The survey, published this weekend, is getting prominent play in the media in Israel, which is home to some 250,000 Holocaust survivors..."

    Antichrist and the False Prophet of Revelation chapter 13 will be the ultimate, final dictatorship. Their regime will be the drivers of the geopolitical and religious juggernaut that will crush anyone and anything that opposes it during the Tribulation era. The engine that will power Satan's cruel, soul-rending beast of Revelation 13:1-2 will be an all-controlling, enslaving economy. We see the beast described as follows:

    "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority" (Revelation 13:1-2).

    The control that beast will wield is described in this way:

    "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name" (Revelation 13:16-17).

    The technologies for setting up just such a system of control over the people of Planet Earth have grown exponentially during the past several decades. Computer-satellite hook-ups between continents, linking most all of the world in a geometrically progressing network of electronic funds transfer capability, brings this generation ever closer to the type control prophesied in those familiar passages of Scripture.

    The United States of America, the most materially blessed nation to ever sit atop earth's surface, has been concentric to the global networking. Most of the great contributions to the computer and satellite revolution have been spawned from this country. But other super-industrious peoples around the globe continue the "progress." Other nations are now taking the relevant technologies to new levels of "achievement." Now, it is America who seems to be dragging her feet in bringing in economic Utopia -- or so it would seem...

    As we looked as these matters of international finance a decade ago, it appeared that the U.S. was the hold-up to bringing in a new world financial order. The refusal to relinquish paper and coinange as currency was viewed as a blocking agent: to establishment of that changed monetary order.

    With the unbelievable swiftness of movement involving all things fiscal since those earlier times, it becomes obvious─to this observer at least-that the powers that drive monetary movement determined to keep hard currencies in place with the U.S. dollar as the standard (until other dynamics of financial interlinkages brought sufficient chaos) to create critical need for a system other than paper and coinage to avert world economic disaster.

    The United States' great wealth and power─represented in the mighty dollar─was thus held high as criterion for international trade until just the right political changes within America had been engineered. That political change has, with the Obama Administration─now begun─and in a big way. The dollar's fate is sealed - as are paper currencies and coinage.

    Is America, then, a stumbling block to─or a catalyst for the emerging system that will almost certainly serve as the framework for the prophesied Antichrist's Revelation 13 hegemony over Planet Earth?

    Rationale prompts one to believe that something must happen to cause the U.S. citizenship to come around to acceptance of a total e-money solution to the confusing state of currency exchanges, etc. But, the process is agonizingly slow, and would likely have to take place with powerful opposition from the American Congress and its constituencies and lobbyists.

    Many observers of Bible prophecy, including yours truly, can't see decades for such a situation to develop. That is, we can't imagine a scenario that would allow, in America, a lengthy transition to the coming global order essential to the future Antichrist regime's system of control. This, because most all other prophesied signals for the Tribulation appear to now be in place─so far as stage-setting for the Tribulation is concerned.

    Again, the factor that fits perfectly into a scenario in which America instantly is brought to such a state of chaos that she acquiesces to the world's call for a cashless system of digital economics, is─you guessed it-the Rapture!

    Maybe here is a more palatable diagnoses of your suffering: False Dilemma. I know you don't like being called "crackpots" and "stupid." Maybe you are just confused. So the economy is hurting, has been for quite awhile. But collapse is not the only possible outcome, which you seem so convinced to be an imminent, forgone conclusion. It is not and either-or proposition, and that is your false dilemma.

    Another more likely outcome is it will slowly recover over time, as it seems to be doing now. The only question about this topic in my mind is how long the doggedly unimaginative crackpots in this thread will continue clinging to their irrational belief in the economic collapse theory.

    Your ability to argue the differ are improving, young Skywalker.
