Roundly: In an era witnessing the rapid devaluation of fiat currencies, the growth of Orwellian autocracy, geopolitical tension, censorship, and general societal confusion over fact versus fiction, Bitcoin is being adopted as the dominant non-state backed monetary system. Simply put, Bitcoin is unseizable wealth riding on a system run by math NOT quasi governmental organizations run by fallible or corruptible officials.
Pictured below is a logarithmic chart showing steady adoption over the course of Bitcoin’s existence.
If printing fiat currency is always the answer to financial crisis, then how sustainable is the current global financial system? Are your savings (in dollars) at risk? Read More …
Opinion: Bible students who view reports like this through the lens of prophecy will know that the first of three financial events found in the Book of Revelation point to a global financial catastrophe that will cause a re-do of the global financial system.
Revelation 6:5-6 prophecies such an event. When one or more currencies of the world’s largest economies fail, hyperinflation will happen suddenly helping a previously unknown man to rise.
When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine”
A quart of wheat, representing one person’s food for the day, will cost a day’s wages. But many will be forced to buy barley, a less expensive food usually used for animals. Three quarts of barley will also cost a denarius, but only the 1% will still be able to afford the luxury of oil and wine. Affordable access to economic commerce will be strictly limited.
In Revelation 13:16-17 we ratchet it up a notch. By this time in the tribulation a global pandemic will have ravaged 25% of the global population (Rev. 6:7-8) and a second in command religious leader (Rev. 13:11) to the rising dictator will force the world to worship him by taking a mark allowing a person to buy and sell.
“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, 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.”
Even the 1% are ordered under pain of death to accept the mark along with the common man. Now, global exclusion to economic markets is in place for non-participants of the the new economic system.
Keep in mind that at this point, the 7 years of tribulation are only half over. The 7 Bowl judgments of God’s wrath are still to come, but what is important to see here is that no means of private wealth like Bitcoin will permitted for men except the currency issued by the government of Antichrist.
“They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.” Ezekiel 7:19
