There is Something Eerily Disconcerting about all of This
The Bible predicts a unified world monetary system at the time when Jesus' return is imminent. If the signs on where everything is going are not enough to waken up all who believe and look for His return, maybe nothing ever will. Things could not be more perfectly in line with what is foretold in the Bible and that alone is enough to convince me that it is indeed the word of God. I know that a lot more has to happen before we can be sure, but these things keep happening and I see no way to deny it is not clearly spelled out for the whole world.
A lot of other predictions seem as if they could begin to have a possibility of fulfillment in the recent future. Right here in the US we are ready to elect a man no one knows much about, to the Presidency. A man with no visible record and suspect associations, a carefully crafted image that will not stand up to scrutiny and yet gets none. Barack Obama probably isn't the one who the Bible says will unify the world into a consolidated Government, but he shows me that people can be easily manipulated to support a candidate fully, when they have no idea who he really is. Once somebody masquerades as President of the United States and the rest of the world is on board, look out!
Russia's resurgence and Israels continued battle to stay alive surrounded by foes are right there in the revelation. I have been paying attention for years, but it always seems like the more that is fulfilled, the more that I become aware of that is close to fulfillment. And there are a lot of big things also, that must be coming. What a time to be alive, I am excited and fearful all at the same time. I hope to live life to the fullest and enjoy some simple pleasures. I pray that the Lord's will be done and may he have mercy on US all.
