What is transpiring today, even as I write and even as you read this article, Satan and his human co-conspirators are conjuring up how to make their next move. And it appears that that next move will be a financial one. Nation after nation, in lock step with the plans of the World Economic Forum and its one world order United Nations Agenda 2030, are preparing to switch their currant currency to a digital currency. This digital currency will bring them one step closer – a very large step closer – to global control, for with this they will be able to track all citizens and cut off the funds of any citizen that does not cooperate with the new world order. A taste of this was seen not long ago in Canada when the protesting truckers had their bank accounts frozen, and many who had donated money to them were also cut off from accessing their money. Think also of China’s social credit score, and the EU’s mandatory COVID passports.
I want to encourage you all to watch Pastor JD’s prophecy update “Follow the Money” below. It is the first listed in the links, as well as Tony Koretz’s latest video “Prepare – Things are Rapidly Starting to Break Down” which is the second link listed.
Pastor JD Farag is very and exactly right when he says that anyone who thinks we have ten or more years in this world are horribly deceived.
Satan – god of this world
For those who are wondering why God is allowing Satan to do all this, I would remind them of 2 Corinthians 4:4 that speaks of the “god of this age” who has blinded the minds of unbelievers, and is the “prince of the power of the air” who now “works in the sons of disobedience” of Ephesians 2:2. Even Jesus does not dispute this in Matthew 4 when Satan states, “8Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”10Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ” Notice that Jesus did not correct Satan’s statement regarding the kingdoms of the world.
And as a further reminder, Job 1 states regarding Satan,
So Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.” (Job 1:6-7)
The passage from Job 1 makes it clear that though Satan has access to the entire world, he cannot be everywhere at once. After all, he is not God. However, Satan has free access and power as the prince of the power of the air and the god of this world, but, he is limited. So, how then does he obtain control of the entire earth by Revelation 13?
The Beast of Revelation 13 to whom “The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority” had it “…granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 8All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” And of the second Beast of Revelation 13 it is said in verse 12 that he “exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast… 14And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17and 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.”
All Authority is from God
Now we know from Romans 1:1 that “…there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.” This means that all this authority that the Dragon has and then gives to the Beasts come from God. After all, throughout the Old Testament God used godless rulers to carry out His judgment upon His people and other nations. Just read Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, all of the minor prophets, the Psalms, and even the Pentateuch and you will see time after time after time, God uses godless rulers to judge His people.
Judges 2 explains, “14And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel. So He delivered them into the hands of plunderers who despoiled them; and He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, so that they could no longer stand before their enemies. 15Wherever they went out, the hand of the Lord was against them for calamity, as the Lord had said, and as the Lord had sworn to them. And Judges 4:2 reads, “…the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the Lord. 2So the Lord sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor. The commander of his army was Sisera, who dwelt in Harosheth Hagoyim.”
According to Daniel and Revelation, God will use Satan to bring about His purpose of judgment upon the entire world that has forsaken Him. From the riders of the four horses of the Apocalypse being given authority to do what they do, to the Dragon of Revelation 12, Beast #1 and Beast #2 of Revelation 13, and the Scarlet Beast of Revelation 17, all will be used by God for the sake of pouring out His wrath upon each and every person who has rejected God. Though it may not make sense to us, it is how God does things. And may we not forget what God Himself said in Isaiah 55,
“8“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
So, if God has always used godless rulers for His purposes, why not use Satan and the Beasts of Revelation?
That being said, God never allows this authority to be used for long, but allows it to be used for the purpose of bringing His judgment upon a nation, nations, and in the end the entire world.
Judging the World
Now, why is God going to judge the world? Doesn’t He love it? Didn’t He send His only begotten Son to die for it?
Romans 1 explains, “18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them…24Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness… 26For this reason God gave them up to vile passions…28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind…32who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
And 2 Thessalonians 2 says, “7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
At the time of the end which we are swiftly approaching and are actually mere seconds away from on the heavenly time clock, God will shake the entire world, every nation, every ruler, every person, and literally everything. Why? According to Psalm 2, the nations raged and the people plotted a vain thing and took their stand against God and against His Anointed Son Jesus. They did not “kiss the Son”, but instead, will march on Jerusalem and array themselves to overthrow God Himself and His people. (“Psalm 2: Prophecy Unfolding Now,” https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2022/02/26/psalm-2-bible-prophecy-unfolding-now/) Furthermore, according to Isaiah 24, the inhabitants of the world are haughty and they have broken the holy covenant, transgressed God’s law, and changed God’s ordinance. In short, they have knowingly rejected God. (“Isaiah 24: The Shaking of the World,” https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2020/08/24/isaiah-24-the-shaking-of-the-world/ Isaiah 24 makes this crystal clear.
“1Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty and makes it waste,
Distorts its surface
And scatters abroad its inhabitants.
2And it shall be:
As with the people, so with the priest;
As with the servant, so with his master;
As with the maid, so with her mistress;
As with the buyer, so with the seller;
As with the lender, so with the borrower;
As with the creditor, so with the debtor. 3The land shall be entirely emptied and utterly plundered, For the Lord has spoken this word.
4The earth mourns and fades away,Isaiah 24
The world languishes and fades away;
The haughty people of the earth languish.
5The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants,
Because they have transgressed the laws,
Changed the ordinance,
Broken the everlasting covenant.
6Therefore the curse has devoured the earth,
And those who dwell in it are desolate.
Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned,
And few men are left.”
For those who may wonder why is this happening now, I would answer with a question, well, questions really. Why not now? If not now, when? When else in all of human history has everything been in such alignment? When else has Matthew 24/Luke 17 and 21/Mark 13/and all the prophets been so close to complete fulfillment? When else have we been on the cusp of the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse with God’s judgment of sword and violence, famine, pestilence and wild beasts (including microscopic) being seen worldwide?
And really, no matter when God would choose to bring all things to an end, that generation would always ask, ‘why now?’ I mean really when you think about it, when is the end convenient? When is persecution convenient for that matter, or judgment, or life?
The Shemita and the Year of Jubilee
Even so, the leadership of this world are in league together and are plotting to change the monetary system, possibly even by the end of this year. And I want to remind you, that Elul 29, according to Jonathan Cahn in his book The Mystery of the Shemita, has always been an important date when it comes to stock market crashes and other not so nice things (if you don’t have the book, just google the topic and you’ll find lots of commentary on it). By the way, Elul 29 this year is September 25, 2022. On top of this, this year of 2022/23 is thought to be the year of Jubilee, which is an incredible time wherein God said that those who’d lost their land could regain it and those who owed money no longer owed it, and all debt large and small was erased (Isn’t God awesome?! – Deuteronomy 15 and Leviticus 25). And wouldn’t it be just like Satan to be a copy cat and use that timing to bring about his own concept of a “reset”? Something that makes me go “hmmmmm”.
It appears that we are down to the final seconds. And yes, those final seconds can seem like an eternity. So, let’s stay awake. Let’s keep watching. Let’s keep praying. Let’s keep looking up, for our REDEMPTION is so close we can nearly touch Him! Jesus is coming soon! Let’s be ready!

Quote: “It’s not about the U.S. versus China. It’s about what underpins a world order is always the financial system…What we’re seeing in the world today, I think, we are on the brink of a dramatic change, where we are about to, and I’ll say this boldy, we’re about to abandon the traditional system of money and accounting, and introduce a new one. And the new one, the new accounting is what we call blockchain. It means digital. It means almost having a perfect record of every single transaction…It also raises huge dangers in terms of the balance of power between states and citizens…but also, this new money will be sovereign in nature…What I see are superpowers introducing digital currency. The Chinese are first. The U.S. is on the brink…The Europeans are committed to that as well. And the question is will that new system of digital money and digital accounting accommodate the competing needs of the citizens of all these locations so that every human being has a chance to have a better life. Cause that’s the only measure of whether a world order really serves.”

As of 2021, it looked after 5.2 billion euros ($5.6 billion) of client assets. Though commonly called a “bank,” the IOR is technically a financial institute, with no branches, working within Vatican City State to provide services to clients, which include the Holy See and connected entities, religious orders, clergy, Catholic institutions, and Holy See employees.”

Quote: “Whenever the White House says it is working on a plan that would transform a vital part of the U.S. economy, and that the administration is doing so with the “highest urgency,” it should go without saying that the press should pay close attention to what’s going on…On March 9, the Biden administration released an executive order (EO) instructing a long list of federal agencies to study digital assets and to propose numerous reports about their use and proposals to regulate them. Much of the executive order is focused on cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ethereum, which run on blockchain technology and have become increasingly popular among many investors and consumers in recent years.But there is an even more important part of the EO: President Biden has instructed the federal government and Federal Reserve to lay the groundwork for a potential new U.S. currency, a digital dollar…Digital dollars…would be traceable and programmable. The Federal Reserve (or some other designated entity) would have the ability to create more digital dollars whenever it sees fit, and, depending on how the legislation is written setting up the currency, the dollars could be formulated to have various rules and restrictions built into their design. For example, a digital dollar could be crafted to restrict fossil-fuel use, to give bonuses to people for spending at particular businesses, to enact de facto price controls by disallowing users from spending too much on particular products, or even to redistribute wealth.”

Quote: “Pakistan’s interior minister is warning that outspoken critics of the current government could find their biometric identity cards blocked, leaving them without access to their bank accounts…Tyrannical government control over people’s freedom and finances has also been developing at unprecedented levels in several other countries, including communist China. And there are concerns about the European Union and the United States falling in line with the idea of digital identity monitoring as well. As CBN News has reported over the last couple of years, China’s move toward a cashless society with a digital currency mirrors how the entire world is literally being set up for heightened levels of government control…”There will be a point where the People’s Bank of China, the central bank of their country, is going to be able to look, peer inside of every single transaction, what everyone does, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” warned Bethel.This means if you are a human rights activist or a Christian, authorities can use this new technology to punish you if you engage in activities they consider to be anti-communist… Some are warning that the European Union is currently undergoing a “Chinafication.” As CBN News reported this week, the EU will reportedly test a new digital identity program for its citizens later this year with a rollout planned for September 2023.”

Quote: “One of its chief critics, European Parliament Member Cristian Terhes, was born in Communist Romania. He’s been warning of the EU’s so-called “Chinafication” since the EU made COVID passports mandatory. Terhes says, “Clearly we are witnessing right now, the ‘Chinafication’ of Europe, because we see what is happening in China right now with the social credit score, where the government is monitoring … all the people from the beginning to end, everything that they do, everywhere they walk. They control everything and watch everything. This is an example of tyranny.”…
“The EU insists the digital identity program will be voluntary. Skeptics are wondering how long before it becomes mandatory.European Parliament Member Rob Roos from the Netherlands asked, “How voluntary is the European Digital Identity Wallet? But even more importantly, how voluntary will it remain in the future? Because the European union always comes up with nice plans to eventually abuse it, to create more control.”The EU’s COVID passport was supposed to be temporary. Now Brussels wants to extend it until at least June of next year. COVID passports have been used to prevent the unvaccinated from crossing borders, entering grocery stores, using public transportation, and even going to their jobs. They have also helped fuel violent demonstrations the likes of which Europe hasn’t seen for decades…
Not only are digital IDs coming, but in Italy, the cities of Rome and Bologna have begun social credit programs that reward citizens for behavior that officials think will fight climate change, like using a bike instead of a scooter. A social credit system could be easily incorporated into a digital identity.
Austrian Catholic activist Alexander Tschugguel of the St. Boniface Institute, says that in any European social credit system, Christians will lose, because of their opposition to issues like abortion, which the EU views as a human right. “Therefore I do not want the European Union to have the possibility to look into everything I do, everything I say, everything I have and how I move and where I am at any time,” Tschugguel said, “Those systems are pushed by people who are highly anti-Christian.” Terhes warns that the EU’s new digital ID is the next step in a process in which the government in Brussels will micromanage every aspect of people’s lives.He said, “This is what makes the difference between a tyranny and democracy: When you know everything about what your government does, that’s democracy. When the government knows everything about you, that is tyranny.”” (emphasis mine)
