Zero Hedge: It’s not just “tinfoil blogs” who (for the past 11 years) have been warning that a monetary reset is inevitable and the only viable fallback option once trust and faith in fiat is lost, is a gold standard (something which even Mark Carney hinted at recently): central banks are joining the doom parade now too.
An article published by the De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), or Dutch Central Bank, has shocked many with its claim that “if the entire system collapses, the gold stock provides a collateral to start over.”
While gloomy predictions of a monetary reset are hardly new, they have traditionally been relegated to the fringe of mainstream financial thought – after all, as Mario Draghi stated on several occasions in recent years, the mere contemplation of a “doomsday scenario” is enough to create the self-fulfilling prophecy which materializes it. As such, it is stunning to see a mainstream financial institution open up about the superior value of limited supply, non-fiat, sound money assets. more …
Opinion: Yeah, it is stunning only because it lines up with Bible prophecy. The first mention of economic collapse takes place early in the 7 year tribulation:
“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.” Revelation 6:5-6
Here is where the confusion comes in. Post-Tribulation teaches that the rapture of the church takes place at the end of the tribulation. That those who are saved will be protected from the wrath of the Lamb but those unsaved will experience a time that will be so terrible that Jesus said “unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened” Matthew 24:22.
I can’t help but picturing well fed Christians in the middle of a starving population.
Post -Tribbers are typically Amillennialists, that ascribe to a non-literal interpretation of Scripture and base their view of the 2nd coming on 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17, and 1 Corinthians 15:51-52.
In 1 Thessalonians Jesus returns for His church but does not return to earth, but rather meets His church in the clouds. The verse in no way compares to the triumphant return of Jesus to earth with an army of saints as found in Revelation 19:11-16.
In 1 Corinthians post-tribbers believe that the sound of the last trumpet means the end of the tribulation, but no trumpet is found in Revelation 19. In Scripture a trumpet blast means a change, and in this case it signals the end of the church age and the START of the tribulation.
The big economic collapse is coming but with the church still here, it is not yet.
