How close are we to the Rapture? Judging by the events we are seeing in the world all around us, pretty close. Here's something to chew on this morning:
Rev13:16 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: 17 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. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
In order for no man to buy or sell without the mark, what's needed? Answer: A one world financial system. How to we get a one world financial system? Well, have you been watching the news? Due to the sub-prime financial meltdown, banks around the world are folding, or more importantly close to folding, which is important why? Recent headlines tell us things like Bear Stearns being taken over for pennies on the dollar by JPMorgan. What we are seeing is MASS CONSOLIDATION OF BANKS. This just goes to show that all of this was foreseen by the Lord thousands of years ago. The one world beast financial system is forming RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES! It's all so subtle isn't it? The Lord says He's coming like a thief, and those who are not "in Christ" will be caught unprepared. Be ready, be watching, time is short, Grace and Peace
