Reward Her Double


Money makes the world go ’round. Not the geophysical world, of course, but the world of commerce and shopping and buying and selling and business and markets and… well… “life.” Money is involved in almost everything we do, to the point that we take for granted the means by which money moves, rarely thinking about it until something like COVID-19 comes along and disrupts virtually every facet of our existence and forces us to dedicate a few brain cells to the topic of where money comes from and where it goes to—and why.

Unfortunately, the attention span of today’s brains barely lasts long enough to bridge the gap from being sent home from work—by order of the Corona—to the first government paycheck, direct deposited to your bank account before you even realize what happened. Oh, and by the way, no hurry on that tax return—the IRS had a change of heart. A person has to pinch himself to be sure this isn’t some sort of bizarre dream of opposites, where an invisible bug has suddenly turned the brutal takers all into teddy bears that make you just want to give them a hug for being so nice. And hey, don’t worry about paying that mortgage either, by the way. The banks that formerly took your money hand over fist in fees and percentages and interest payments also caught the love bug. What? Utility bills? Ah, don’t worry! Your mayor’s a good Samaritan, and your lawmakers really do serve you—without it taking an act of Congress to get something done. Wait. Did the ease with which trillions of dollars just materialized out of thin air now render that idiom invalid?

If the sheer incongruity of a world turned up-side-down does not give a person enough reason to pause and consider money’s role in this surreal post-COVID-19 world, there’s another reason to think about fiscal basics at such a time as this: it’s in the Bible. Money is a major theme in the book of the revelation of Jesus Christ, and that means there is a biblical blueprint for what is going on with money at the time when He returns and establishes His (truly right-side-up) Kingdom.

Thus, it is not hard to see how the topic of money will fit into this final article series about “Coronageddon” and the return of Christ. The present crisis has thrust the whole world into a war—not a traditional war, but a war nevertheless. Whether from the bully pulpit of the president or the sanctified pulpit of the pastor, war analogies are on everyone’s lips as people “come together” in “solitarity,” fighting to stop the end of the world. And for many, their world has already ended as casualties of this war. The dying of the sick has nurses bewildered as they struggle to cope. Restaurant owners cannot hold back the tears of remorse as they have been forced to let go of the employees under their care, whose only thread of independence has just snapped and left them to fall to the mercy of state handouts. Many are forced to re-think their life. Streets bustling with life have become deathly still. Everything that was known and dear, everything that was sacred has been violated by order of the Crown—to the point that one cannot even show natural affection to a loved one for fear of the invisible enemy.

There is at least one definite truth in all the distortion and confusion of a world turned upside down: a war is raging. And not only are lives at stake, but also the character of life itself from henceforth. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer and the middle class—small business owners, restaurant owners, hotels, family businesses—all swept away over night by the broom of emergency edicts. There is no longer a middle class. And soon, all types of dirty, virus-carrying cash will be done away with, to be conveniently replaced by a digital currency that Big Brother can track down to the very last penny. Listen to Trump: “It’s our money, our currency.” In other words, the message is: your money isn’t yours. It’s not private property that you can acquire and dispose of privately as you wish. It’s “our” money, says Trump, and “we” say how it’s used, how many trillions are washed down the channels of society, and where it goes and what for.

Meanwhile, the people have no voice, because the people can no longer even come together to share ideas or to make their voice heard. “Social distancing” is quite convenient right now, isn’t it? Oh, but we still have the Internet, right? Wrong! Remember, Internet freedoms conveniently disappeared yesteryear. If your online voice triggers any AI filters, your message is just quietly diminished in rank and reach until it isn’t even heard anymore.

I don’t want to be negative, but we must be honest. It’s too late.

This generation will go down in the annals of time as the generation that lost its sovereignty and dignity as the human race. If time would go on and Jesus would not return as He promised, there would be no future for the children and the children’s children other than mere existence as brute beasts under Orwell’s invincible Party.

When will you really cry out to God? How bad will it have to get to bring you to your knees, not to pray to the “Almighty Dollar” for guidance anymore, but to seek the One and Only Deliverer who can save you once and for all from the corruption of sin? When will you desire the coming of Jesus so much that you come to the point that you are willing to destroy your monetary idols and fight for His return by investing your whole being in His Kingdom?

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (1 Timothy 6:10)

The aim of this article is to enter the battlefield by putting the weapon of God’s choosing into the hands of everyone who reads this or hears the things revealed herein. That weapon is something that God is providing to you—a mightily powerful, yet simple means to end the oppressive and corrupt domination of modern-day “Babylon.” And the time has come to use it.

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. (Revelation 18:1–3)

Those words open the chapter that prophesies the fall of modern-day Babylon, and there we read that the time of her fall has come when “all nations” have prostituted themselves, financially. That has now happened, as has become clear in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, when nations that formerly fought tooth and nail over budget issues are doling out irrecoverable trillions in the blink of an eye.

So, what is the divine weapon? To answer that, we first need to understand who Babylon is.

Who, or What, Is Babylon the Great?

“Babylon” means many different things to many different people, and they’re all partly right because they each see one aspect of a sprawling term that encompasses a great conglomerate monster—one that would seem too formidable to be overcome by any ordinary means. This article will identify the vulnerability of Great Babylon that will allow you to drain the entire beast of its lifeblood—the blood it has been sucking from the veins of humanity for a long, long time. No, we’re not talking about vampires, but the Bible does describe Babylon in words that are not too far distant:

And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. (Revelation 18:24)

Notice that the Bible is talking about a beast that is responsible for ALL the bloodshed of the history of the earth—not just the blood of saints and prophets! The blood of wars, the blood of those who died by famine—all the death that has ever grieved this earth, worldwide, is treasured up in the heart of Babylon.

We could talk about who was behind all the great wars of every century, or who tortured and killed the saints, or who decimated whole populations with artificially provoked famines, but since Revelation speaks of the fall of Babylon coming at the point when “the merchants of the earth are waxed rich” through her, we need to look beyond the literal terms of “blood” and “the slain” and examine their symbolic meaning in the context of spiritual Babylon today. This brings us directly to the point: What is the lifeblood of the geopolitical world-dominating “beast”?

To answer that question and to understand the anatomy of this beast, we can apply the same techniques that are used in state-of-the-art medical facilities. We need to take an X-ray of the blood vessels in the body. However, blood vessels do not normally appear on X-ray charts because the X-rays easily penetrate straight through the blood vessels. Therefore, a radiopaque fluid must be injected into the bloodstream in order for the X-ray detectors to “see” them.

If we were to apply this same technique to the geopolitical beast that we call “the world,” then we would see on our X-ray chart something like the following:

The image above shows the routes (arteries) for the flow of money (lifeblood) between all the nations (organs) of the world (body). Like cells and platelets flowing in the blood plasma, financial pathways make it possible for goods and services to be provided around the globe. In other words, the ebb and flow of money around the world is the lifeblood that pulses through the veins and arteries of great Babylon.

The human circulatory system The picture above, however, illustrates another important point, because it was generated from data about the inflow and outflow of money between the countries of the world, which only represents a very high-level overview of the world’s operations. This granularity is particularly noticeable where everything converges at a single point for the United States, even though the money goes to many different points within the country. A similar convergence is seen for China. By contrast, Europe shows a slightly more fine-grained structure because it consists of many smaller nations. This limit in the precision of our X-ray view into the beast’s circulatory system could be compared to the diagram at right, which shows only the major arteries of the human body. It provides only a macrosystem view.

This is significant because it highlights a limitation in the nations’ ability to analyze the flow. Of course, our example is just a rough illustration, whereas nation states have much more detailed data at their disposal, but still there is a limit to their ability to track the flow of money—especially cash.

In the present (shall we say past?) system of things, cash that leaves the bank might circulate in the hands of citizens, moving many times from person to person or business to business until it finally ends up deposited back into some other bank somewhere—and the banking system has no insight into the adventurous tour a particular dollar bill might have taken.

As common people, that sounds perfectly desirable. We don’t want the bank to know about every sandwich we bought for lunch.[1] But for Big Brother, it’s not so simple. The government doesn’t want to miss out on any taxes that it can lay claim to, but cash deals are an untraceable way to evade paying them. The problem is, how does the government stop people from using cash? It’s easy… just do it the same way the school janitor stops the girls from kissing the bathroom mirror—wash it with the toilet brush. I mean, do you know how many coronas have hitched a ride on those bills you just got from the street vendor (when there was still a street vendor, that is)? That’s fearmongering at its finest, but hey, it works. Every responsible citizen will be ready in a heartbeat to trade their legal tender for the shiny new digital coin, all in the name of health and solidarity.

Let’s put this all together now. A very informative view of some key initial developments of the new world financial system were recorded by Brother John ten years ago in his article entitled The Year of Saul. Please allow me to quote the entire relevant section (bold is original), because it provides valuable insight into how the world leaders got us to where we are today. Furthermore, it ties the knot back to the identity of the beast that is responsible for shedding the blood of the saints.

What happened on June 29, 2009?

Many did not realize that Benedict XVI’s new encyclical, “Love in Truth”, officially bears this date. The headlines of the press confirmed it: “The pope calls for world dominion!” He argues for a New World Order through a controlling political world government, except that it would not be able to solve the world’s problems. There would need to be ONE “moral world leader” on top of the world government. Who should this leader be, if not the pope himself?

The pope’s latest encyclical was officially published on June 29, 2009. One year before, he had already announced in the signet of the Year of Paul that the dominion of Aquarius, namely Neptune, would be solicited on June 29, 2009. However, the encyclical was even sent a few days earlier to all the members of the G8 summit that started on July 1, 2009, so the “world rulers” could study it beforehand and discuss it at the summit.

The venue was changed from Sardinia, completely unexpectedly, to L’Aquila, a little town in the mountains 40 km from the Vatican, which had been shaken by terrible earthquakes. The name L’Aquila is Italian and means “the eagle”. Compare the fourth seal in Revelation! There nearby the Vatican, the rulers of the world lived in sackcloth and ashes, in police barracks instead of 5-star hotels like ever before, to supposedly show their solidarity with the earthquake victims. In truth, it was humiliation before the Vatican. They pleaded for the Vatican to solve the world’s financial crisis, created by the Vatican itself and its Masonic lodge, the Bilderbergers. The nations bowed down before the pope to get solutions to their problems.

The very last historic G8 summit ended on July 10, 2009. A few days before the G8 summit started, Angela Merkel of Germany had already announced that it would be the last, and that the G20 would be the new world government. All the “rulers” departed on this 10th of July, except Obama: the black “crowned” king of the papal coat of arms, the highest Illuminati, who now heads the second beast of Revelation 13, the United States. He was brought directly to his FIRST private audience with the pope, a top-secret meeting! Obama went to the Vatican and announced to the pope the decision of the nations regarding his solicitude for world dominion!

We know from the Bible what the result was...

The nations promised to the pope on July 10, 2009 that he could soon take over the world scepter.

That was 2009. Since that time the world leaders have been hard at work in the establishment of the new world order—not only the new political order, but also the new financial order—the lifeblood on which the former depends. Another milestone was reached at the G20 summit in Mexico in 2012, and in 2013 the new “lord of the world” assumed the throne that was prepared for him. On his agenda? Revamp the Vatican Bank, demonize capitalism, and urge the new world economic order.

And here we are on the cusp of it, one 11-year solar cycle since it all began. Watch out for June 2020, as indicated in Brother John’s last article!

The New World Empire

I read a letter this morning from someone far away who doesn’t communicate often. He wrote several paragraphs about life under lockdown in one of the more affected areas of the United States, describing the changes, the impacts, the things that are surprisingly still the same—but despite everything, this Christian who professes to believe that Jesus is coming soon did not even mention His holy name once, nor express the foggiest allusion to the fact that this crisis shows that His return is at hand. And sadly, I believe he’s quite in the norm in his complacency.

Here in Paraguay, there isn’t the same air of political correctness to keep the people at ease while the wool is pulled over their eyes. They just force the matter, whether people like it or not. Paraguay’s Minister of Education announced on April 1 that schools will not reopen soon, that “school kits” are being given to parents, and teachers are sending homework via WhatsApp.[2] No, this is no April Fool’s Day joke. On the same day, the Minister of the Interior said schools wouldn’t open till September.[3] In other words, the crisis is here to stay. But in light of God’s clock (image), do you think the schools will ever reopen again, even in September?

The next day, the Minister of Agriculture and Livestock announced a program to take control of the nation’s farms to meet domestic food needs instead of depending on imports.[4] In his remarks, he bluntly cited the new world order as the justification for the decision:

For Friedmann, this decision is justified by the establishment of “a new world order with respect to food,” and he assured that the current situation “demands as soon a start as possible.” [Translated]

By the third day, the government started clamping down on motorists. They had previously planned restrictions for Holy Week with the support of the police and armed forces to prevent the masses from leaving the capital (as they do every year for the holidays). The idea was to keep the coronavirus from being carried from the city into the country’s interior. However, people are said to have been leaving earlier in the week not to be impeded by the restriction, so the government is now imposing tighter controls, including fines and the seizure of vehicles, which the authorities say will never be returned.

A story was plastered on the local news sites[5] of a city mayor who took matters into his own hands, because the police were not providing the support needed to prevent traffic into his city. With the help of some of his fellow citizens, he moved a pile of dirt onto the road to block incoming traffic—and placed a coffin there as a warning to inbound motorists. A coffin!? Indeed.

The fiery furnace The fourth day, which was Sabbath, the headlines were so biblically blunt that a person could hardly believe it:

Hard message from the Government:
“Your house or the oven”

The article is about a large pyrolytic oven that will be used to dispose of the bodies of those who die from COVID-19. But according to the headline, it sounds more like the book of Daniel:

And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. (Daniel 3:11)

The Bible story of the three Hebrews in the Babylonian fiery furnace is known to be a type for the end of the world, when Babylon the Great would urge absolute obedience to schemed-up laws on pain of death. Who would have guessed that a literal furnace would be used for this purpose where the heart of the movement of High Sabbath Adventists is located, in Paraguay?

This is not the first time we have wondered if perhaps three of us would be tested in like manner as the three friends of Daniel,[6] but the idea that we could literally end up being thrown into a literal oven had never occurred to us. Thankfully, it is not against God’s law to stay home during the present crisis—but of course this threat would extend to demand absolute obedience to ANY governmental order that comes in the name of COVID-19. Who can say where this will ultimately lead?

Baking temperatures We did a bit of calculating. In the photo, you can see that this high-temperature oven (which was formerly used to dispose of illicit drugs) is made by CALTEC, an Argentinian company—the native home of Pope Francis, king of “Babylon the Great” today—and it reaches a temperature of 1200°C (2192°F).

Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace seven times more than it was wont to be heated. (Daniel 3:19 ASV)

If Nebuchadnezzar simply repurposed a large beehive oven[7] that was used for cooking purposes, as is likely, then we could even compare temperatures. If 1200°C is seven times hotter, what would the normal temperature be?

1200 ÷ 7 = 171°C (340°F)

This is typical baking temperature. In culinary terms, that means the heat of the king’s wrath does not just demand that the offenders be burnt to a crisp, but that they be reduced to ash and blown out the chimney, like the white smoke that signaled the start of the Argentinian pope’s reign.

This is the unvarnished picture of how life is changing under the new world order. Rampant fear is pitting citizens against each other, and a person’s home has become their prison cell. The authorities are daily enforcing more draconian measures in the very name of the new world order, and through fear of the coronavirus, they have the full justification and power to demand the cooperation of the people—people who cannot so much gather for peaceful purposes anymore—not even to vote. There is nothing left of democracy.

And if you dare to think this doesn’t apply to other countries, listen to what Steven Ben-Nun is saying about the fact that Donald Trump is no longer making his speeches with the Presidential Seal. A couple of user comments on that topic could be found on his video entitled “Beast Kingdom Is Here” as follows:

Buried Truth Is a Seed

I was just listening to one of your other videos in which you mentioned that Trump has no power in this and is not running it. Have you noticed that the presidential seal is no longer on the podium?

Jim Mergens

Ironic, isn’t it?..... And the so called Truth Community doesn’t see it. Even after years of exposing the main stream media’s fake news and new world order/agenda 2030 narrative. Truly the Great Deception is upon us. Implemented without firing a shot.

I did not really want to go into that topic, because that particular aspect of the new world order is not the focus of this article. Nevertheless, it must be made clear that the new world order is here. No, it’s not just “coming soon.” It’s here, just as much as COVID-19 is here, because the coordinated global response to the coronavirus pandemic is itself the implementation of and transition into the new order.

2020 and the Beast from the Bottomless Pit

The signet of the Pauline Year In 2010, in the article The Year of Saul, Brother John brought to light some unpleasant knowledge concerning the agenda of the papacy, demystifying the symbolism of their Signet of the Pauline Year of 2008/2009. As the Age of Aquarius was dawning, we revisited this topic in 2014, after a Jesuit—the first to do so—had already ascended the papal throne. Today, we can cap that research in light of the fact that 2020 has proven to be the year when the long-laid plans are going into effect.

It is not hard to see that three chain links are missing in the signet (right), which if supplied would bring the total number of chain links to 20. That, combined with the fact that we were already in the 2000s at the time of this signet (as made prominent by the 2008/2009 designation), points to 2020 as the year in which the powers of evil planned to close the chain around the world.

Indeed, there are many ways to arrive at 2020 through the numbers of this signet,[8] but the year in question is also corroborated in Benedict XVI’s papal coat of arms. As Brother John has been pointing out since the appearance of this papal coat of arms, the message has always been about making every effort to prepare for Satan—as the Antichrist and successor of Benedict—to finally seize power over the whole world:

Benedict XVI's papal coat of arms

The Prophecy of the Popes seems to be coming true as well. We already saw “the labor of the sun” fulfilled in the work of Pope John Paul II, who labored extensively during his long tenure to prepare the way for the “invincible sun” of Rome to return to full intensity. The “glory of the olive” has come true in the experience of Pope Benedict XVI, who is the “blessed one” among the popes to have directly paved the way for the return of the Roman power through his resignation, while still living to see the fruit of his efforts.

Looking at the pack saddle on the bear of St. Corbinian, notice the X configuration of the tied package (which would not work in practice). Combined with another X from the hidden side, we have XX or 20 as a Roman numeral, again suggesting the year ’20. Is it a surprise that a worldwide “bear” market (an unusual beast for burdens) was used as a vehicle to carry out their plans to centralize control of the world’s finances? Some even understand Guterres’ call for a global response to COVID-19 as a wedge to get a 10% global tax funneled to the UN for re-distribution.

There is simply no lack of evidence to suggest that the elite of this world have been planning for this year for a long time. Even the sun logo of the Jesuits has 20 rays (10 straight and 10 curved). Perhaps the G20 was also so chosen to have that many member nations to reflect this overarching goal.

Still, there’s another place where 2020 seems to have been planned long in advance, and with a lot of certainty—even etched in stone: the so-called Georgia Guidestones. Evoking an impression like that of a modern Stonehenge, this monument stands in defiance of the God of Israel who wrote His eternal law on tables of stone, obedience to which is eternal life.[9] By contrast, these stones are a monument to the god Nature (instead of the God of nature).

The first “commandment” reads:

Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

The Georgia Guidestones

The message comes full circle with the last of its ten precepts:

Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

Do you see how the pope’s Climate Deal is perfectly in line with this?[10] In fact, the Paris Agreement went into effect three and a half years ago, but then borders were opened for migration until now. This parallels the same length of time that the Christians had to flee from Jerusalem after the siege of AD 66 and before its destruction in AD 70. This should sound emergency alarm bells in the mind of every Protestant in the world, since Jesus compared the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple with the end of the world! We’re already in the second siege that will end in destruction!

To further corroborate the point, the Georgia Pridestones were in planning for 20 years, were erected 20 years before the year 2000, and now 20 more years later we find that the climate agenda is the very means being used to subjugate humanity. Is that coincidence or planning?

Attention was brought to this monument in 2014, when a small granite cube was removed from a notch in the corner of one of the large slabs. The cube had numbers and letters on its six faces: JAM, MM, 8, 14, 16, and 20. Again, we have numbers which can easily be construed as pointing to the year 2020, for example by taking MM as a Roman numeral (2000) along with the number 20 to get 2020. Alternatively, using the unbiblical numerology of the enemy:

The cube

14 = 1 + 4 = 5 (a)

16 = 1 + 6 = 7 (b)

Combining (a) and (b):

5 + 7 = 12 (c)

Combining (c) and the remaining 8:

12 + 8 = 20

Thus, we have at least two ways to get to the year 2020 from the cube alone.

While conspiracy theories abound, it must also be made clear that if a conspiracy to kill over 90% of the world’s population is proven and known to have been hatched by a group of secret individuals, and it is written in plain text on tables of stone that can be read in eight modern languages, then it is simply not a theory but a fact—a conspiracy fact. Not all of the conspirators have remained secret, however,[11] especially lately. But today it doesn’t matter—with the coronavirus pandemic, we take mass burials in stride.

Like I said, I didn’t really want to go into that topic, but it does need to be made clear that, politically speaking, we now have a one-world government as of 2020, carefully and meticulously planned long in advance. This is Babylon the Great, the same old World Empire in a new age.

Queen Elizabeth even made a rare appearance on television to affirm that the new order was going into force. Among her remarks, which hearken back to World War II, she said the following (note the present tense):

While we have faced challenges before [such as WWII], this one is different. This time we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavor [the NWO], using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal [as a cover to implement it]. We will succeed [in implementing the NWO] – and that success will belong to every one of us.

With heavy references to WWII, could it be that the queen’s invocation of the song “We’ll Meet Again” has more to do with meeting “Hitler” again than anything else? After all, Hitler’s goal was a New Order of world dominance.

Recently, Gordon Brown urged exactly that:

Gordon Brown has urged world leaders to create a temporary [uh huh] form of global government to tackle the twin medical and economic crises caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The former Labour prime minister, who was at the centre of the international efforts to tackle the impact of the near-meltdown of the banks in 2008, said there was a need for a taskforce involving world leaders, health experts and the heads of the international organisations that would have executive powers to coordinate the response.

Did you catch that? This is coming from the man who was “at the center” of the 2008 crisis that led the G8 world financial leaders to restructure in 2009. His voice carries weight, and you can be sure his call was not an off-the-cuff suggestion. The entire scenario of a virus pandemic was hypothesized and studied out in 2012, subsequently released by the German federal parliament, to plan how the governments would respond in such a scenario. An analysis of the document by Dr. Walter Veith (video) shows that the coronavirus pandemic follows the hypothesized crisis with uncanny accuracy, and the planned responses to the crisis are what we see taking place on the world stage on a daily basis now. The governments’ responses have all been planned already. Thus, Gordon Brown’s call to establish executive powers over the entire world was merely giving a timely indicator that that point in the plan’s execution had been reached.

But what is of particular interest in the context of the description of Babylon’s fall in Revelation 18 is that the former prime minister speaks of a “twin” crisis, the second part being “economic,” and that his experience had to do with the “near-meltdown of the banks in 2008.” In other words, this crisis is ultimately about money, and there was a precursor financial crisis and now an even greater crisis.

Quoted earlier was a piece that mentioned Barack Obama’s role in the last G8 summit. He also “knew” the virus playbook—listen to his speech of December 2, 2014, and notice that he speaks directly about a deadly airborne pandemic of this nature coming in five years’ time. Yes, December 2014 plus five years comes to December 2019, exactly where the COVID-19 timeline begins! And the context of his speech was a call for a global infrastructure to be prepared for such a case.

In his analysis,[12] Dr. Veith concluded that the present crisis is either preparatory to the time of trouble that will lead to Christ’s coming, or the real thing. He could not say for sure, but seeing that the players who were involved in the 2008-2009 financial crisis era are speaking up again, then it is pretty clear which crisis was the preparation and which is the real thing (if the queen and other incumbent world leaders haven’t made it clear enough already).

Note how the financial crisis corresponds to the fact that Revelation 18 describes the fall of Babylon in primarily economic terms. Fifty percent of the entire chapter is written in financial language, and it describes exactly the kind of global trade distribution illustrated previously:

And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. (Revelation 18:11-19)

And to put the dot on the “i” and the cross on the “t”, the very next verse ties this economic downfall back to the blood of the saints and prophets, which was found in her:

Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. (Revelation 18:20)

The killing of God’s people through all the centuries will be avenged by the draining of the fiscal lifeblood of Great Babylon. This is what was declared in the complementary chapter:[13]

He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. (Revelation 13:10)

The Captivity All Over Again

The guilt of Babylon is twofold, as suggested by Revelation 13:10 (last quoted). One who “leads into captivity” or “kills with the sword” must be punished in like manner. We saw how the killing with sword will be rewarded, but why does the Scripture make mention of “leading into captivity” in connection with the first beast of chapter 13, which by extension applies also to Great Babylon and its sprawling financial tentacles? What does captivity mean in economic terms? The answer is obvious: debt.

Old-time slavery Debt is a form of slavery for the simple reason that the debtor is obliged to work for the lender. By shutting down small businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic and then turning around and offering small business loans through the banking system, Babylon is “leading into captivity” a new generation—mostly the middle class—in addition to the multitudes who are already enslaved by consumer debt (to the tune of trillions of dollars in America, for example).

In this way, the United States of America and many other countries where slavery was once practiced have returned to their former oppression of the people. In the book of Jeremiah, God identifies this return to slavery as the justification for His judgments, as a type for the end of the world:

The word which came unto Jeremiah from the Lord, when Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and all his army, and all the kingdoms of the earth of his dominion, and all the people, fought against Jerusalem, and against all the cities thereof… This is the word that came unto Jeremiah from the Lord, after that the king Zedekiah had made a covenant with all the people which were at Jerusalem, to proclaim liberty unto them; That every man should let his manservant, and every man his maidservant, being an Hebrew or an Hebrewess, go free; that none should serve himself of them, to wit, of a Jew his brother. Now when all the princes, and all the people, which had entered into the covenant, heard that every one should let his manservant, and every one his maidservant, go free, that none should serve themselves of them any more, then they obeyed, and let them go. But afterward they turned, and caused the servants and the handmaids, whom they had let go free, to return, and brought them into subjection for servants and for handmaids… Therefore thus saith the Lord; Ye have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother, and every man to his neighbour: behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the Lord, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine; and I will make you to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth… I will even give them into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of them that seek their life: and their dead bodies shall be for meat unto the fowls of the heaven, and to the beasts of the earth. (Jeremiah 34:1, 8–11, 17, 20)

That last reference to “food for the birds” is alluded to in Revelation 19:17-18, as Brother John explained in his last article, and thus we have the biblical connection showing that re-enslavement by debt brings the judgments of God that have been reserved for the end of the world.

The United States has a notable history in dealing with the issue of slavery, and it was in the context of this epic struggle that James Russell Lowell’s famous poem was written, entitled The Present Crisis, later to be adapted with a “tune in a bottle” as the hymn of Christian warfare entitled Once to Every Man and Nation, emphasizing deep themes we hold so dear: the moment of decision, bravery, sacrifice, and relentless advancement in righteousness despite all odds.

Slavery to evil is more horrible than death itself—it is a living hell. That is what Satan introduced into this world six thousand years ago, and that is what Jesus Christ came to save humanity from. And this planet is just the battleground of the war for the universe. Do you understand what is at stake here, and why the issue of slavery is so significant in the context of Revelation and the final judgment of this world?

It is a fitting time to review the significance of slavery, especially in biblical terms, as it is the “Easter” (that is, Passover) season, which is a commemoration of ancient Israel’s exodus from Egyptian bondage. It was over a period of hundreds of years that the children of Israel were brought under bondage. Today, the world finds itself in bondage to a different “Pharaoh” of Babylon, and the enslaving chain is debt. Money is no longer counted in terms of what one has, but what one owes. This flies directly contrary to common sense and capitalism in the true composition of the word, which requires “capital” and not debt. What floats as capitalism today should in fact be called “debtism.” You can’t count what you don’t have!

That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered. (Ecclesiastes 1:15)

Leaving the “gold standard” to let currencies float on a bubble of debt is well known to be the fallacy of the entire financial system. It is this system of debt (or to use an equivalent term, credit) that has enslaved the world, because having money doesn’t really mean you own anything—other than your small share in the total debt of the world. And therefore, the powers that control the debt are the masters of your money, even if you personally have no debt. Therefore, the banksters feel perfectly justified in tightening their grip on “your” money—they see it as their money, loaned to you, regardless of whether you hold it on credit or completely debt free, because they have debt on the order of $250 trillion.

Today, if you want to do something with any significant amount of money, the bank holds your transaction for a number of days for it to “clear,” and if the transaction crosses certain thresholds they ask for legal documentation as to where the money came from and where it’s going, to make sure you are not mishandling the money they have debt on. You cannot simply take your money out of the bank, and even if you could, where would you put it if it’s a large sum? If you think gold is safe, think again! Gold can be (and has been) confiscated, and those who are in the know (like Gerald Celente, for example) are presently sounding the alarm.

The church of Philadelphia has some individuals in it who have gone through quite an experience with regard to bank matters, so we know first-hand how tightly Babylon grips “their” money. The Lord worked things out for Brother John to gain access to an inheritance that had been locked up for 40 years. During those years, he suffered privation and many other hardships, gave his life to Christ, and ultimately sacrificed everything for the Lord. He left the cities and relocated to the countryside in obedience to God’s counsel, and now he and others who followed similar courses are able to live and have a garden and the room to still be able to enjoy the open air of the outdoors, even during this coronavirus lockdown.

Just at the right time, God made it possible for him to access the money, all of which he gave to fund the High Sabbath Adventist Society, which is now able to help others as a result. This was far more than the Society had ever received through offerings or subscriptions, and it could then be used to help worthy persons. A second time, he gave everything to benefit others.

The money octopus That process, however, was fraught with difficulty. It took 40 days from the scheduled date of disbursement to the day it was out of the hands of Babylon. Suffice it to say that it was not an easy process, and we have a first-hand knowledge of how difficult it is to work with banks that do not want to let go of your money.

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: 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. (Revelation 13:16–17)

Thus, we learned in a very unpleasant way how it is that no man can buy or sell, except he has the mark of the beast. If you have never had such problems with your bank, it’s probably either because you are dealing in amounts that are too little to be of concern—that is, you’re already in bondage as a poor slave of the system whether you realize it or not—or you pay high fees, or you already have the badge of LGBT tolerance and the political correctness of the new global order. But since we stand for God’s truth on the matter of marriage, the banks were not inclined to provide efficient service.

The Second Exodus

As you can see, Babylon does not let money escape its tentacles easily, especially when it is a large sum. But God intended this experience to teach important lessons, which is why it is being mentioned here. As we can see in the book of Revelation, God speaks to this generation especially in terms of money, because money has become the god of this world, and that is the language the people understand. We spoke of money that was not the result of ill-gotten gains or greed, but was perfectly rightful; it warranted no hassle. Furthermore, God revealed to us that this money was for the redemption of the 144,000 first fruits of Revelation, like the redemption of the firstborn of the Israelites:

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine; Because all the firstborn are mine; for on the day that I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto me all the firstborn in Israel, both man and beast: mine shall they be: I am the Lord. (Numbers 3:11–13)

This was demonstrated by God, who “changeth not,” in impressive and miraculous ways. The lesson in this example is, if you would like to work for the Lord in the final harvest, if you are striving to be among the 144,000, then you must be following a similar course to depart from Babylon by taking your excess money or other assets from the Babylonian system.

As mentioned, it took a long time and a lot of hassles with banking bureaucracies to get the large sum moved out of Babylon without paying exorbitant fees and exchange rates that bordered on extortion. It is not for no reason that the “banksters” are so called! It takes wisdom to navigate the banks without losing a fortune, and not just any wisdom; it takes the guidance of God.

The effort to secure divine financial wisdom started long before the money was delivered. Brother John researched intensively and sought divine counsel continually, every day gaining more and more experience as he explored every feasible option. When the Scriptures warn of the loss of riches in the last days, and God provides resources for His work, then a person needs to know two things:

1. When are the “last days” when the money will become worthless?
2. How should the money be secured against the prophesied financial collapse?

The first question is adequately answered by studying the clocks of God. Little needs to be said about that; just read up on it. If you understand God’s time plan, then you know we are in the last days and the money will lose its value if not invested correctly, and you might even have an idea as to when the financial collapse could happen and thus how soon the money must be secured.

The second question, however, is not as easy to answer. Is money safer in a US dollar account? Is it safer in euros? Is it safe in a bank at all? What about the share markets? Perhaps gold is the way to go. If so, what kind of gold investment would be the wisest? Where would the gold be held? What if the gold is held in a treasury that becomes inaccessible in the future (e.g. now, as COVID-19 has killed all air travel and even much ground transportation)? What if governments become desperate; could they confiscate the gold? What about real estate investments? Would that be a safe way to preserve the money through the crisis?

Being a good steward of money can be a daunting responsibility. The choices are not always clear, and the repercussions of a world-wide economic disaster are not at all obvious—at least not to human eyes, and therefore divine wisdom is required. We did not have all the answers at once, but one thing became clearer by the minute once the money was in Brother John’s name: it had to be taken out of the claws of the Babylonian financial beast before it was held, devoured, devalued, or seized without explanation or right of appeal.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Revelation 18:4)

When the plagues of Babylon are described especially in terms of a collapse of the entire financial system, the warning to come out of Babylon to escape her plagues becomes a condition upon which hangs God’s promises to protect His people. As Lot had to come out of Sodom to avoid the hail of fire, so must we come out of Babylon to avoid the financial collapse (and the hail of fire). Thus, we had to find a “safe haven” for the redemption money of the 144,000 that would be safely outside of Babylon and out of reach to the tentacles of its financial infrastructure.

The Unruly Children

Exactly how God led us to the route of escape from the banking system is a combination of all factors of divine leading. There was effort put forth to search, there were God-given dreams to give hints, there were Bible principles and counsel from the inspired writings, and there was a lot of prayer and supplication. Getting there was not easy, but in the end the solution was simple and almost self-evident, once you have the right information.

Think about it. God is calling His people out of the Babylonian system, so He must have a counter system where His people can flee to. And that system must have all the good properties that counter the Babylonian system’s bad characteristics. For example:

Babylon’s systemGod’s provision?
High feesLow cost
Based on debtNot based on debt
Central banks can print/devalue moneyMoney supply is limited or fixed
Centrally controlledDecentralized
Bank must approve transactionsOwner has full control
Difficult to move money around the worldBorderless universal system
Requires blind trust in the banksThe system is transparent
Your personal information is exposed to bankersPersonal information is private

Where do you think we can find such a financial infrastructure?

To borrow a turn of phrase: “Tell me who your enemy is, and I will tell you who you are!” It should be obvious that if there is a fast alternative to the slow banks, and a low-cost alternative to their high fees, etc., then the enemies of such a system would surely be the banks and their allies, who would naturally fight vehemently against such a system to avoid losing their piece of the fiduciary pie. That means if we look at who the banks are waging war against, we stand a good chance of finding the transactional haven that God has prepared for the use of His workers in these last days.

What is going on here? What is the big deal about bitcoin and/or cryptocurrencies in general that is drawing the ire of banks, lawmakers, and even the YouTube police? Many others explain the real reason big banks hate bitcoin, but let’s get it from the horse’s mouth.

The CEO of JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, had a lot to say against bitcoin for a while. Let’s take a look at his criticisms (quoted from CNBC):

I could care less about bitcoin. I don’t know why I said anything about it. The blockchain is a technology which is a good technology. We actually use it. It will be useful in a lot of different things. God bless the blockchain. Cryptocurrencies, digital currencies, I think are also fine. JPMorgan moves $6 trillion around the world every day, and we don’t do it in cash, it’s done digitally. If it can be done digitally with the blockchain, so be it. But it will still be a dollar cryptocurrency. What I have an issue with is a non-fiat cryptocurrency. So crypto sterling, euro, yen, they are all fine…

So, basically what he says is that the cryptocurrency technologies are good, but he is against the bitcoin in particular because it is not a government-backed (fiat) currency. Wait… Isn’t that exactly the criteria we were looking for? We want a money that is NOT government backed so that it will continue to be useful during an economic collapse when the dollar (or euro, etc.) loses its value.

The fact that he singles out bitcoin is significant, because not all cryptocurrencies are alike, as he also pointed out. Let’s see what else Jamie Dimon has been saying about bitcoin:

“And a central bank — of course they can misuse it. The central bank [can also] inflate it. So there is a use case for bitcoin. If you live in Venezuela, North Korea, if you’re a criminal, great product. I mean that. It’s better than cash or deposits in that country. Cuba.

Ok, so he admits that bitcoin is especially suited to protect against a central bank’s inflation of the money supply (e.g. by the trillions of dollars injected). That is exactly the use case we had in mind. The picture painted by Revelation 18 of the world’s commercially desolate landscape fits very well the examples he cited—Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba. There are many ordinary citizens who live in those countries who are not criminals and would just like to be able to buy a piece of bread to feed their children at a time when their country’s economy is destroyed by their government. Such will soon be the fate of even Great America, according to God’s word, so, “Thank you, Mr. Dimon, for the (unintentional) tip.” “Do you have any more arguments in favor of bitcoin?”

People have said, legitimately, “ok, it’s close to gold.” Not really. Gold is limited, it’s been around for a long time.

His statement above is not entirely factual; bitcoin is even more limited than gold (by design). And that’s a good thing for currency, because it means there cannot be any inflation. However, it is true that it hasn’t been around for as long as gold, but does that matter? The original Babylonian world empire was founded on the currency of gold, and Babylon continues that tradition today by virtue of the fact that most of the world’s gold is being hoarded by the governments of the world.

If we make an honest comparison between gold and bitcoin, some surprising conclusions emerge. Gold is considered intrinsically valuable, unlike bitcoin, which seems to speak in its favor. However, in a situation where trade is severely or totally crippled, what can you do with gold? You can’t eat it, and it isn’t really practical to file off a spec of it to trade for your daily bread. So, there’s no advantage over bitcoin in that sense.

Regarding the fact that bitcoin is a “young” currency, that is no argument against it when coming from the same mouth that praised the equally young blockchain technology that powers it. But this does bring us to an interesting observation. Bitcoin was born out of the financial crisis of 2008, which we’ve already talked about. The first commercial bitcoin transaction was performed in 2010,[14] the year when the Orion message began. It is very appropriate that it was specifically developed for the purpose of withstanding another financial crisis, and its commercial use parallels the public preaching of God’s last message to the world through the constellation of Orion.

The JPMorgan Chase CEO also admitted that the value of any money is determined by the people who trade it. Although he intended the argument against bitcoin under his assumption that people will collectively “give up” on its value, the point also applies to any government-backed currency as well. If people would become skeptical of the government currencies and stop using them, what value would they have? This is a key point, because it shows that money is inherently democratic. Every dollar you hold is one vote in favor of its value as a currency.

In our case, we had a little bit of divine help in the form of dreams to help us come to the idea of purchasing bitcoin. Receiving dreams is not as easy as it sounds, however, because the dreams have to be deciphered to understand what their symbols mean. In several dreams, we kept seeing “unruly children” under about ten years of age. The meaning of these “unruly children” could be deduced by considering the money-related context and the ways God has led us in past Bible studies.

In some of our previous articles, we already explained how “men” can represent money as a prophetic symbol, just as we speak of dollar bills as “George Washingtons,” for example. Children, then, could be a representation of a “young” currency, with the children’s age as an indicator of how long the currency has been in circulation. Thus, the age of about ten years as presented in dreams points to the number of years bitcoin has been in use in a commercial capacity.

If you look at what investors say about bitcoin, or if you watch the price of bitcoin yourself, one thing that stands out is the fact that it is very volatile in comparison to other more stable currencies. It is up one day, down the next hour, back up again, up higher, down again, up again… it’s all over the place, like “unruly children.” It doesn’t generally follow expected norms. We, however, weren’t looking to gamble with it[15]—we just wanted to preserve the value of the provisions that the Lord has supplied in order to continue His work of ministering to people’s physical and spiritual hunger for bread and water throughout the last harvest of souls.

Then will be the time for us to trust wholly in God, and He will sustain us. I saw that our bread and water would be sure at that time, and we should not lack, or suffer hunger. {Mar 181.2}

The redemption money that the Lord provided to us stands for the 144,000 pure and undefiled “virgins” who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. That means we have to train the “unruly children” to be disciplined and useful workers in His service. This is done by putting them to work supplying the needs of God’s children who are suffering under the oppression of the new world order and for His cause.

The cross In the very end, all money will lose its value. The only thing that has enduring value is Christ and His sacrifice. He is the Pearl of Great Price. When planning financial affairs, it is easy to get caught up in laying up treasures for a future on this earth, but this earth is passing away. There is a new home that Jesus has prepared for us. We must never forget why God gives us temporal resources: it is to reach the lost with the message of salvation and obedience to the cross that He used to demonstrate His love. His sacrifice is the first transaction in the “Genesis block” of the blockchain of the Kingdom of God, where self-sacrificing love is the “gold standard” that underpins the economy of the sinless universe. But it is here on this earth when we must begin to invest in His Kingdom.

All the things of this earth are passing away—even bitcoin—and we don’t want the things of this world to blind us to the world to come. We don’t want to let our hearts get set on earthly fortunes. But if our heart is in the Kingdom of God, then it makes sense that as long as we live on this earth and need to deal with money, we should put our earthly treasures into His cause, however that can best be accomplished.

Reaching Out to the Lost

A Forbes article listed previously, dated July 30, 2019 and entitled U.S. Lawmakers Are Realizing They Can’t Ban Bitcoin does a good job of explaining why bitcoin can’t readily be outlawed. The issue is summarized from the mouth of a global financial services CEO who senses a threat to the whole financial sector and every government in the world:

“I think the challenge that we all face with this is some of these cryptocurrencies — they’re literally just a piece of open-source software,” said Allaire. “There’s nothing else. It exists on the internet, it’s open-source software, anyone can implement it, it runs wherever the internet runs, and these have a monetary policy where these assets are algorithmically generated . . . That is a challenge that every government in the world now facesthat money, digital money, will move frictionlessly everywhere in the world at the speed of the internet.”

In comparison to the banks, “frictionless” is a very fitting description for bitcoin. Banks take their time, charge all kinds of fees, and impose limits of all kinds to stop clients from having, gaining, or using large amounts of one’s own money without their approval. Generally, they just do what they want without so much as common courtesy.

Bitcoin is different. As an example of how “frictionlessly” bitcoin works, consider a real-world example of ministering to the needs of a number of people in a distant country who had come into need as a result of the coronavirus lockdown. By sending bitcoin, it was possible to provide help instantly and “frictionlessly” resulting in purchases of foodstuffs on the receiver’s end in just a matter of a few hours from the moment the money was sent.

Contrast that with the number of business days it takes to send money via international bank transfer, or with the cost of fast money transfer services that make you pay through the nose.

To really drive the point home, I would like to show you one letter from our mission field as an example of the contrast between the two systems, in very tangible and practical terms from those who are on the front lines:

Happy Sabbath to all of you, my dear family in Paraguay.

I sent above some photos of the people that I have personally extended your gift to, and they are so very happy for the blessings from God. They extend their deep thankfulness to your ministry.

My brother in flesh who also received your gift said to me “Sister, your sponsor is so great. That is a blessing from God.” Praise God for their response to our Almighty God. His name is honored and glorified.

My husband told me that due to the lockdown, the [Church] cannot withdraw their money for the salary of their workers this month. My husband is really astonished because your help is real, and he said to me, “you received the money from them without any hindrances, it is really guided by God.” . . . .

Did you notice that the “Church”—whose identity I leave to your imagination—can no longer pay its workers? Whatever the reasons, in today’s day and age of the coronavirus when people cannot gather in traditional church buildings, the old “business model” simply falls apart. The sacred money-making machine is dismantled, and so is the weekly pep-talk preaching that was keeping the members in delusion. One of the prophets of the day recently relayed the following very accurate words:

I HAVE REMOVED MY CHURCH from the cold, dead tombs that they gathered in and have now made a way for MY CHURCH TO DRAW CLOSE TO ME.

The subject of the “removal” of the church is a big one among those looking for the rapture. If the above prophecy is taken at face value, it seems to suggest that the first stage of the rapture, which is the resurrection of the dead, has already taken place as people are ordered to stay home from church. Could it be that to “draw close to Me” does not mean a literal rapture-ascension either, but a closeness that is to be obtained through the study of God’s word at home in lieu of church gatherings? That is exactly what the High Sabbath Adventist Society is geared for, and combined with the facility to meet the tangible needs of people with “real” help, the message of truth can march forward. Our websites provide thousands of pages of strong meat as Bible study material for your Sabbath worship time—meat that can sustain you till Jesus comes.

This is why God provides resources—to reach people in time of need, both spiritually and physically. By contrast, the ecumenical churches have planned unwisely by investing in the Babylonian monetary system. As markets go down, so does their unused and unusable wealth. How God will judge those who lock up and abuse the resources He provides will be a topic in Brother Ray’s closing article.

How To Defeat Babylon

The Lord led us along a difficult way to finally reach the point where His provisions could be put to use in a practical sense. Having money and being able to spend it are two different things. Among other things, we had to figure out how to change between fiat money and bitcoin, which is not necessarily an easy task amidst a bank-bitcoin war. But the Lord taught us many things along the rough road while we were seeking His guidance in the search for the way out of Babylon.

If you want to change fiat currency to bitcoin or vice versa, you need an exchange house that deals in cryptocurrencies. There are many to choose from, and one that the Lord seemed to be pointing us toward is called CEX.IO. At first we did not understand the reason why He pointed us to this particular exchange, but when we began to understand how Revelation 13 was being fulfilled—a chapter which is directly related to chapter 18 in the crossover-chiastic scheme of the book[16]—then we understood a thing.

It has already been mentioned how nobody can buy or sell anymore unless that person or entity complies with the mark of the beast, or is dealing with amounts of money that are below the thresholds (in which case one is already a slave of Babylon, because without financial independence, a person is forced to do whatever the boss says—whoever that boss happens to be). So, understanding that those verses of Revelation 13 fulfilled, one might ask whether the fulfillment goes on further. The next verse in the chapter is:

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. (Revelation 13:18)

As we were having lunch one day and talking about these things, we suddenly had a realization that shocked us at first. Notice how the number 666 is written in Greek (the original language of Revelation):

The number of the beast

If you do not see what shocked us yet, let me help. English uses so-called “Latin” letters, but Greek letters are very different. Nevertheless, to our “Latin” eyes, the Greek numeral for 666 printed above looks very near XEC, which is CEX spelled backwards!

The way this number is calculated in Greek is similar to how Roman numerals work and is explained by Wikipedia as follows:

In medieval manuscripts of the Book of Revelation, the number of the Beast 666 is written as χξϛ (600 + 60 + 6).

You can be sure we were quite astonished as we sat there looking at these things on our smartphones at lunch, realizing that God had been leading us to the crypto exchange whose name was the exact reverse of the number of the beast! What could this mean!?

At first, we were not completely sure about the last letter, sigma (Σ, σ, or ς), being comparable to the letter C. In many Greek fonts, it does not really look like a C, and sigma is usually associated more with the letter S than the letter C. However, a little research revealed that we are perfectly correct to see the sigma as a C according to Wikipedia:

In handwritten Greek during the Hellenistic period (4th and 3rd centuries BC), the epigraphic form of Σ was simplified into a C-like shape. It is also found on coins from the fourth century BC onward. This became the universal standard form of sigma during late antiquity and the Middle Ages. It is today known as lunate sigma (uppercase Ϲ, lowercase ϲ), because of its crescent-like shape.

It is still widely used in decorative typefaces in Greece, especially in religious and church contexts, as well as in some modern print editions of classical Greek texts.

Wow, does the number 666 have a religious or church context!? Are we speaking about coins!?

Furthermore, the fact that sigma makes an S sound confirms the only logical English pronunciation of CEX, which some of us were initially a bit bashful about. CEX is pronounced as “sex,” just as the sigma would suggest if the mark of the beast numerals were literally reversed. In this way, God confirms directly in His Word that the mark of the beast is about a “backwards” or wrong form of sex. But when we use the name CEX, we are speaking straight (the letters are not reversed).

Do you understand what this means in the bigger picture? Cryptocurrencies (especially bitcoin) are at war with the Babylonian so-called “fiat” currencies, and if CEX (a crypto exchange) represents the reversal of the mark of the beast, then the mark of the beast itself must belong to the banking cartels, which is exactly what we could discern. Without the mark of the beast, one cannot do with his or her own money what one wants. Once again, this emphasizes that to come out of mystical Babylon, one must also come out of the banking and financial system on which it is built, and God is showing that cryptocurrency is the modern way to do that.

Why? Because bitcoin has many features that are an affront to Babylon, such as:

• Bitcoin is decentralized, so the oligarchs can’t control your money. You can do a transaction anytime, day or night, weekend or work day. It is similar to cash in that respect (which many governments are striving to eliminate for the same reason).

• Bitcoin is discreet. You can have any amount of money in the tiny space of your electronic wallet without attracting attention. Not so with cash (much less gold or silver).

• Bitcoin transactions are secure, without the need for trusting a bank.

• Bitcoin transaction fees are set by the ones who want to do the transaction instead of imposed by the bank, and the fees are the reward of the ones who process the transaction. This is fair, in contrast to how the banks take as much money as they choose in fees for their “trustworthy” service.

• Transferring bitcoin does not put your money in someone else’s hands for long delays of multiple days, like when a person works with a bank. This stops the banks from being able to speculate with one’s money while they keep it “on hold” for several days during a transaction, as they are well known to do.

Cryptocurrency wallet Unfortunately, fees charged by exchanges can be costly, and bitcoin is not legal everywhere. But when the rubber meets the road, anyone can install a mobile or desktop wallet and send or receive bitcoin directly to/from another person without any government interference or excess fees—easier than cash. As that concerned financial sector CEO said, it works wherever the Internet works and there’s really no way governments can stop it (or even know that a person has bitcoin).

For those fluent in the English language, Keiser Report’s episode entitled Quantitative Hardening offers an unusual but accurate discussion of the war between bitcoin and the fiat money system. Soon, as banks begin to collapse in the coronavirus crisis, the governments will likely step in with one of their own trackable cryptocurrencies designed to allow them to control the world. Stay with bitcoin! The participants in the video mentioned above compare owning bitcoin to civil disobedience, because it is “an exit” from the government’s “Ponzi scheme” of unbacked fiat money that is pulled out of thin air.

That’s where the topic comes back around to the spiritual battle we are facing. That’s where the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego comes in, because ultimately the king of Babylon will mandate the worship (use) of his own golden-statue currency to combat the hemorrhaging, as more and more people leave the debt-based system of fluttery fiat money to buy cold, hard bitcoin.

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace; and he will deliver us out of thy hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. (Daniel 3:16–18 ASV)

It is already clear how the beast of Babylonian is to be defeated. What do you think will happen to Babylon, when everybody recognizes the value of bitcoin and leaves the banking system? The lifeblood of the beast will drain out, and because the bleeding is coming from billions of tiny capillaries—representing the oppressed masses who are the working hands and feet of the system—there is no single point to stop it. The blockchain itself is distributed and replicated around the world, and as long as individuals are discreet about their own bitcoin wallets, there’s little Big Brother can do against it—other than make a decree.

To put the situation in another historical Babylonian context, trading fiat currency for bitcoin is the redirection of the Euphrates river, which was done the good old-fashioned way: by the manual effort of thousands of fighting men who used shovels instead of swords. That is how buying bitcoin brings down Babylon in the same ingenious way that Cyrus conquered the ancient city.

And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. (Revelation 18:22–23)

Although the method is simple, this is a battle that will require sacrifice and determined effort until the goal is reached—and that goal is the coming of Christ to rescue His people from this sin-ravaged planet. Do not be afraid, because only those who fail to leave Babylon will suffer her plagues. Only those who keep their money in the systems of Babylon will lose it to uncontrolled inflation and skyrocketing prices, or those who keep it in illusory investments like the real estate market, which has collapsed because people cannot pay their rent or make their mortgage payments anymore.

I saw that if any held on to their property and did not inquire of the Lord as to their duty, He would not make duty known, and they would be permitted to keep their property, and in the time of trouble it would come up before them like a mountain to crush them, and they would try to dispose of it, but would not be able. I heard some mourn like this: “The cause was languishing, God’s people were starving for the truth, and we made no effort to supply the lack; now our property is useless. Oh, that we had let it go, and laid up treasure in heaven!” … {EW 57.1}

Although God has spoken by His prophets,[17] it is dangerous to view the prophecies of God as inevitable fate, because such thinking lulls a person into feeling no responsibility to fight for His cause. This matter calls for duty. Human initiative is required. God does not force people to carry out His will, and therefore it devolves upon you, reader, to act.

It is not a question of whether God has the power to accomplish His purposes, but a question of where you will be, in the final analysis. Remember the words of Mordecai:

Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? (Esther 4:13–14)

Our Lord, who calls us “My people,” has given the command:

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. (Revelation 18:4–5)

There is nothing left to salvage of Babylon except the souls He purchased. Have you asked Jesus to be your Lord? Do you obey His command implicitly as a good soldier of the cross? Then His command to you is to come out of her! Come out of the den of thieves! Do everything in your power to drain the veins of Babylon of every excess dime you can influence. (Were not the Israelites commanded to plunder Egypt?) Babylon extorted her taxes from you, she robbed you with high fees, stole your retirement, devalued your money by sleight of hand, and sucked everything she could get from your pockets to consume it upon her own perverted, Proud, LGBT lusts—and then she raped your sons and daughters with your own money, squandered by a church that will do nothing for you when you need it most! Now it is your turn, by order of the throne of the King of kings and Lord of lords, to His people:

Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. (Revelation 18:6–8)

Black hole Let her riches be consumed with the silent, relentless power of POWEHI, letting only the light of her burning be answer those who would not escape her destruction. And never forget to show compassion on fellow sufferers in the name of Christ, by providing for their physical and spiritual needs to help them leave too and rejoice over her with you—they are your eternal investment in the expansion of the Kingdom of God. Sin will be burned up, but those with pure hearts shall see God.

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8)

Cryptocurrency (being information) never deteriorates; it is the most incorruptible form of money today, invented here at the end of time just as we are preparing to enter the heavenly Canaan where there will really be no more corruption of any kind. Bitcoin is secure from the thieving banks, who break into your private affairs and steal your money by hook or by crook.

In view of the benefits of bitcoin over other forms of money, and recognizing that God’s plan is to use it to destroy Babylon and ultimately establish His Kingdom, the words of our Lord gain a whole new meaning:

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:19–21)

And to another:

Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. (Matthew 19:21)

Attitudes are being reeducated, however. If time would go on, people would be happy for AI bots to know about every detail of their life, in order for them to also give advice on what to eat for lunch on any given day for optimum health, as just one example.
