No man can Buy or Sell - OR NOT?

I have been aware of the potential for a one world currency for some time. It seems like it is in the book of Revelation. Seems like.

But, as I have been watching carefully the events of the world around us it has become apparent in the spirit that there is an offsetting prophetic inclination that puts the one world currency into question regarding our time.

Jesus said it. Matthew 24:

4Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. 5For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,a]"> and will deceive many. 6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains.

9"Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

As economic pains increase, as famine and warfare become more widespread, as difficulties expand, I see that Jesus is right, nation will rise up against nation, in various places, in response to difficulty. That will mean that in the end there will be an expansion of national, regional and even local exchange methodologies. Currencies if you want to call them that.

The money will fail and as it does it will be replaced with methods of exchange. Nations against nations. Even the Euro will not survive this. There is no Amero. Fiat Currency demands trust and confidence, something in short supply in our world right now.

Now to the prophecy, No man shall buy or sell.....Revelation 13
16 He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. 17 And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. 18 Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.

This prophecy will increase the distrust of any supposed world currency, even non believers know this passage pretty well. It appears that at some point there will come a point when the Beast has taken control that he will outlaw all of the many exchange methods. Trying to implement a world exchange system. If the wise Christian is diligent he or she will not be willing to take the mark. Therefore buying and selling will be off limits to Christians and those who take know and understand this prophecy.

Many non believers will take the mark. And there will be many non believers according to Jesus. More than we expect. The system will come into place, but it will be only integrated by force. Cause.

A one world currency will not be able to be implemented as long as there are men and women on the earth who are unwilling to use or embrace it. We will trade sea shells rather than trade in a devil based currency. So, be brave and be strong and don't fear the talk of a one world currency......yet.

Which is why either we will be killed or taken up. Evenso, come Lord Jesus.

We already are trading in a devil based currency. God's currency on earth is silver and gold. In the O.T.(hebrew) the word silver and money are the same word. Our currency will fail as it is basically backed by nothing. Convert your worthless paper into silver and gold while you still can.
