The Times of Israel: BRUSSELS (AP) — European Union nations bracing for the looming Donald Trump presidency showed defiance Monday in the face of the president-elect’s stinging comments on everything from NATO and German cars to the crumbling of the EU itself.

Trump also said Britain’s decision to leave the 28-nation European Union would “end up being a great thing,” and he predicted that other countries would also leave.

Opinion: EU progressives have their collective noses out of joint. The utter gall of a nationalist president-elect insulting the very fabric of socialism, is beyond the pale.

Worst of all Trump even had the nerve to slam Sunday’s Paris peace conference that was trying to negate 4,000 years of Bible history. Because of Trump the conference folded like a house of cards.

The current structure of the European Union is a train wreck. Wealthy northern countries mixed with economically weak southern countries is a page right out of Daniel 2.

Daniel is about to interpret king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream:

“You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.” Daniel 2: 31-33

After praying to God who reveals secrets, Daniel described the king’s dream and interpretation in detail:

Head of gold: You are this head of gold (Babylon)

Chest and arms of silver: After you another shall arise inferior to you (Medo-Persia)

Belly and thighs of bronze: A third kingdom of bronze shall rule over all the earth  (Alexander/Greece)

Legs of iron: Will break in pieces and crush all the others (Rome/Constantinople)

Feet of iron and clay: Partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided (revived Rome, a perfect description of the EU today).

Astounding, isn’t it? Daniel gave an account of the Gentile empires that would dominate the world all the way to the end of the age. The current structure of the EU will one day give way to 10 divisions each with a king (leader).

The eleventh king will trample the earth Daniel 7:23-25.

Reuters: “This year’s forum, from Jan. 17-20, is expected to be dominated by discussion of a surge in public hostility toward globalization and the rise of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, whose tough talk on trade, including promises of tariffs against China and Mexico, helped win him the White House. Trump will be sworn in on Jan. 20.

Xi is the first Chinese president to ever attend the WEF’s annual forum in Davos, which brings together top-level political and business leaders.”

Opinion: The objective of Xi Jinping’s speech at Davos will be to build “a human community with shared destiny.”

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a Swiss nonprofit foundation, based in Cologny, Geneva. Recognized by the Swiss authorities as an international body, its mission is cited as “committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas.”

Translation: the WEF is a globalist dream. Donald J. Trump is a globalist nightmare.

That a dictator, known for being so brutal as to make Fidel Castro blush, is a featured speaker at this year’s Davos forum, shows that their mask is coming off and the globalists are looking to China for leadership.

I can’t help but wonder what is ahead. Nationalism has been sweeping the world since last summer’s Brexit vote, followed by the rejection of Barack Obama’s globalist push, and Hillary Clinton’s dream for a hemispheric common market with global trade and open borders.

Globalists have suffered a set-back but it’s important to remember three things:

  • Globalists have tremendous wealth, influence, and reach
  • The UN dictators’ club is now run by a Communist Secretary General (António Guterres)
  • Bible prophecy definitely points toward the revived Roman Empire (Daniel 7:20-24; Revelation 13:16-17)

It’s how we get there that will be fascinating.

Cash Is No Longer King: The Phasing Out Of Physical Money Has Begun

Zero hedge: As physical currency around the world is increasingly phased out, the era where “cash is king” seems to be coming to an end. Countries like India and South Korea have chosen to limit access to physical money by law, and others are beginning to test digital blockchains for their central banks.

The unprecedented collusion between governments and central banks that occurred in 2008 led to bailouts, zero percent interest rates and quantitative easing on a scale never before seen in history. Those decisions, which were made under duress and in closed-door meetings, set the stage for this inevitable demise of paper money.”

Opinion: The blockchain is seen as the main technological innovation of Bitcoin, since it stands as proof of all the transactions on the network. A block is the ‘current’ part of a blockchain which records some or all of the recent transactions, and once completed goes into the blockchain as permanent database.

If that sounds to you like an economic twilight zone you are in good company.

Mario Draghi, the European Central Bank president, threw fuel on the soaring stock market this past week with this headline in the UK Guardian: “Markets soar as ECB extends QE programme until December 2017″.

Socialism has so weakened the economies of the EU that it did what former PM Thatcher said it would do: run out of other people’s money.  So to keep the party going, Mario( the dragon), keeps filling the punch bowl with an addictive cocktail loaded with stimulants called QE, printed money.

One hedge fund manager remarked: “More methadone is not going to help, a form of cold turkey [is] needed, but no central bank is going to do that,” he added. He warns governments’ debt-to-GDP levels have risen.”

The markets love it. Interest rates will stay at zero or lower and the banks will be stuffed with phony money. It is hard to wrap one’s mind around the idea that while stocks and real estate prices keep rising the value of money is decreasing because of new money being created.

The hope in the US financial markets is that Trump-onomics will magically solve the problem with massive economic growth due to a rollback of the economically destructive policies of the past eight years.

The amazing thing about this is that with all the talk of the demise of paper money and the potential for a global Venezuela style hyper-inflation, there is no talk about the prophecies that were written over 2000 years ago:

The Rider on the Black Horse (Rev 6:5-6) says it will take a day’s wages to buy a day’s food (hyperinflation), but the rich (represented by oil and wine) will not feel the pain until after the mid-point of the 7 year tribulation, as described by James 5:1-6:

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten.  Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days.  Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.”

Once cash is abolished and a single currency established, the final dictator will be in control of the global economy:

“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Rev. 13:16-17
