I am convinced, not only from what the Scriptures say and what the conditions around us are, but also from what God has shown me personally in dreams and revelations, that America's dollar-based economy is going to crash!--And I don't think it's going to be very long from now. America, with her foolish and selfish economic policies, has robbed the poor to feed the rich, and she can't get away with it forever!
You simply cannot get away from God's economic laws and God's laws of retribution, His promise that "whatsoever you sow, that shall you also reap!" (Gal.6:7 .) America has sown repression economically, so she's going to reap depression!--God's judgements on her for her selfishness and cruelty to the poor and her unwillingness to share her ill-gotten gains and wealth with them! So she's going to get it and be hurt economically, just as she has hurt others!
In fact, America's entire economic system is already hurting and is ready to crash right now, because the whole thing is being supported by nothing more than people's faith in paper! The U.S. dollar used to boast, "One Silver Certificate--Redeemable In Silver" after they went off the gold standard. But then they even took that off the dollar, so now they don't promise to redeem it in either gold or silver. The U.S. is neither on the gold nor the silver standard--strictly on paper.
Their whole economy is built on faith! And that's the trouble, they have pinned their faith on the government and its word instead of on God and His Word!--So when the government fails and loses its credibility, everything goes, as the entire paper-money economy is built on the word of the government and the people's faith in it. Their whole system is built on a false foundation and people's faith in the wrong things!
The only thing that's keeping their economy together is people's faith, just wishful thinking. But once the people wake up and realise that maybe their money isn't really there in the bank or maybe it's not really worth what the government tells them, and they all go down to their banks and try to get it out, that will be the end!
That's exactly what happened during the famous crash of the Great Depression--Black Monday and the days that followed. Banks began to fold up all over the place because the people panicked and lined up by the thousands outside of them, demanding their money--and the banks simply didn't have the money to give them! They'd invested it in other companies or loaned it out and were unable to recall it, so they closed their doors, declared themselves bankrupt and the poor people lost their money.--And thus began the Great Depression!
They keep printing more worthless paper money and they keep spending far more than they're earning, and all the time they're coming nearer and nearer to the end of their rope, because you just simply cannot keep borrowing money in order to spend it to try to bolster your false prosperity! The U.S. alone is over$8,000,000,000,000.00 in debt!--Eight trillion dollars! That's a phenomenal astronomical sum and it's hard for us to even conceive of how much money that really is--eight trillion dollars! The U.S. government is so deeply in debt that even if the U.S. lasted another thousand years, they would never get it all paid!
The American dollar / world monetary system is expanding like a balloon:
And it's just a matter of time until the people wake up and find out! It could happen overnight!--That's the way it happened last time: The people suddenly woke up and realised that their money in the bank was not worth anything, or it might not even be there at all, and they started a run on the banks!--And when it happens this time, the entire economic system will collapse! It will be the greatest economic crash, depression and social and political cataclysm in all of World History!
Can you imagine what will happen in some of America's huge wicked cities like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, etc. with their millions of people, a very large percentage of whom are poor and on welfare, when suddenly the economic crash hits and nobody gets paid anymore?--Suddenly they won't be able to pay the garbage men or the bus drivers or the subway drivers or the truck drivers or the electrical workers or the water workers or any of the other various utility and public service workers!
If suddenly, in these huge overcrowded cities, nobody got paid, all government handouts to the poor were cut off, all food supplies from the outside were halted, the water stopped running, the sewage stopped flowing and the lights went out, what do you think would happen?--Riots?--No!--There'd be WAR! There would be absolute chaos, total bedlam!--Great Confusion! They would be slaughtering each other for food! There'd be a complete breakdown of law and order and today's modern savages would go out with their guns and their knives to get what they wanted by force!
And because America is the head and leader of world capitalism, once she falls, the whole World Capitalistic System is bound to fall with her! And as she is the greatest and strongest enemy of World Socialism, her fall could result in the ultimate triumphant succession of the socialist Antichrist One-World government, as predicted in the Bible!
Such a crash would surely result in chaos and great confusion, which the Antichrist could take advantage of and even solve with his new credit system and World government. As we brought out in chapters 4 and 5, they're already getting ready for this eventuality in Brussels and Luxembourg, the international financial headquarters of Europe. Three floors of one giant building are already devoted to this purpose, to giant computers which have already assigned a credit number to every individual in the Western World!--The system has already been devised whereby you'll no longer use paper money or checks or even silver, just your credit number.
So it looks like a great economic crash will soon devastate America and her once "almighty dollar", which will probably bring the entire Western World's economy down with it! The resultant Confusion and turmoil could definitely prepare the way for the Antichrist, who will probably appear and take advantage of the situation as the pseudo-saviour of the World and restore law and order with his Covenant of Peace and strong iron-rule government.
Then, after he has consolidated and established his power, he and his ten kings will decide that they no longer need the whore and they will turn on her and completely devour her with fire!--"And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the Beast, these shall hate the Whore"--Babylon, or America--"and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire! For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil His will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the Beast, until the Words of God shall be fulfilled." (Rev.17:16,17 .)
It is God who will put this into the hearts of these kings to both serve the beast, the antichrist, and to work with him to destroy the whore.--As a part of the judgements of God! The Antichrist government will turn upon the Whore, America, and his ten kings will devour her, pitch into her, burn her with fire and destroy her!
So everything is working out and going according to God's plan and America will soon suffer for her sins! God's wheels of judgement grind exceeding slow, but they grind exceeding fine!--So, "Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues!" (Rev.18:4 .)
