Zero Hedge: “The war on cash is escalating. Just a week ago, the infamous Willem Buiter, along with Ken Rogoff, voiced their support for a restriction (or ban altogether) on the use of cash (something that was already been implemented in Louisiana in 2011 for used goods).

Chase, the largest bank in the U.S., which has enacted a policy restricting the use of cash in selected markets; bans cash payments for credit cards, mortgages, and auto loans; and disallows the storage of “any cash or coins” in safe deposit boxes.

“The world’s central banks have a problem. When economic conditions worsen, they react by reducing interest rates in order to stimulate the economy. But, as has happened across the world in recent years, there comes a point where those central banks run out of room to cut — they can bring interest rates to zero, but reducing them further below that is fraught with problems, the biggest of which is cash in the economy.

Opinion: Joseph Salerno, the writer of the article, is academic vice president of the Mises Institute, professor of economics at Pace University, and editor of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics.

Like most academics, Joseph Salerno does not make a connection between cashless societies and Bible prophecy and for that matter neither does the Bible.

But the Bible does mention that a future dictator will have such control (Revelation 13:17) that no one can buy or sell without a mark that identifies  allegiance to antichrist.

We have written of the fall of the US dollar as world reserve currency for three years. When that happens, in the midst of economic upheaval, a ban on cash would be barely noticed.

The LA Times: “For the first time, the U.S. Geological Survey has unveiled a map of earthquakes thought to be triggered by human activity in the eastern and central United States.

All of the areas highlighted on the map “are located near deep fluid injection wells or other industrial activities capable of inducing earthquakes,” the study said.

“We know, for example, in Oklahoma that there was an earthquake of about magnitude 7 about 1,300 years ago,” said USGS geophysicist William Ellsworth. “We have to be guided with what we have seen in the past.”

Opinion: Or we could be guided by what was prophesied “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of birth pains.” Matthew 24: 6-9
