Economic woes - the engine of the end events

The following is personal interpretation of Biblical prophecies of future events that shall happen very soon.  It is based on what is understood as the commencing fulfillment of these End prophecies.

Today (08.09.19) Patrick Rizzo and Jeannine Aversa, who are AP writers, wrote a news article, they stated that the present ongoing problem was/is the worst for Wall Street since the depression.  In another link, Heather Steaward wrote in the Guardian on Thursday, April 10, 08, that the present economic woes are the greatest this world has experienced since the Great Depression.

Follow up, 2008.09.20
Today in Reuter's, Patrick Rucker and Kevin Drawbaugh had an article about the economic crisis that has gotten everybody's attention.  Here it states in similar language as the above news links that the present crisis is the biggest since the Great Depression.  For those want to explore the link, it is included here.  Again, it is likely a temporarily link: news link

On another news site, it was mentioned that the American government will infuse ca 0.7 trillion dollars (700 billion) into the economy to try to make it bouyant.  On top of that, many other governments have followed suit internally and force-fed massive amounts of money into their institutions to try to prop them up.  Many banks around the world have gone bankrupt and more would have without the assistance received.

As my wife commented, if these same people had wanted to help the little man, they could probably have avoided this whole problem with pennies (comparatively) by giving those who couldn't afford to pay the extra fees on their mortgages a few hundred dollars monthly assistance free of charge.  But such help of the individual that may have avoided the sub-prime problem in the first place is a foreign concept to the rich rulers.

Conclusions

Wall Street's problem, Main Street's problem, and the Credit Crunch that has surfaced just recently is now affecting the whole world.  As this line is being written (2008.10.24) stocks and currencies are taking a dive across the board in many parts of the world. 

Some types of stocks were doing so badly that trading was halted several times today in Europe and perhaps other places.  As a comparison, with the 2nd paragraph below, the severe economic depression has caused the usage of fuel to drop so drastically that even though OPEC today agreed to cut production 5%, the prices are still expected to drop down to US$50 per barrel.  The OPEC cut is an attempt to control the prices and prevent them from falling any more catastrophically. 

According to this site Crude Oil Futures Prices, we can see that ca 08.07.31, a barrel was about $145 and today (08.10.24) it is $64.15 per barrel.  This is a direct result of the demand-and-availability causality of the globally troubled economy affecting oil prices.  As may be seen from the unaltered paragraph below, gas prices at the local pumps then were sky high – the two dates are just a month apart.

(08.09.19) The sub-prime problem combined with the spiraling costs of fuel which translates into food production problems that already have caused the feed of animals to rise to such levels that some milk producers have been forced out of business constitute a problem of global proportions.  These economic woes are already affecting food prices around the world.  No country is unaffected by this.

What is of interest here is that Revelation chapter 13:16,17 - tells us that the time will come when no one can buy or sell without a mark.  There would have to be an overwhelming reason for the need to establish such global control.  The present economic woes worsening without bounds is that cause.  Soon, the  IMF will become even more powerful as a global force in regard to overseeing the economic transactions of all countries.  

Rev 13:16,17,  . . .And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their right hand, or upon their forehead; 17 and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name. (ASV)

When we study Revelation's prophecy about Babylon the Great's destruction, it cannot remain unnoticed that the same kings that destroy her are saddened beyond measure at this. 

Rev 18:9, And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication, and lived luxuriously with her, shall weep and wail over her, when they see the smoke of her burning, (Darby) (Definition: Babylon the Great is used to symbolize the world's organized religions, perhaps all are included, perhaps not)
This tells us that there was an imperative reason for them to commit this act of violence onto their lover.  What deep reason would that be?

Money!

When we combine the prophecy in Jeremiah below with this, it becomes clear that the two prophecies are interconnected.  We are told that God makes the kings have this need to destroy her; he forces them into this action.  How?
Rev 17:16,17, And the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast, these shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and shall burn her with fire; 17for God has given to their hearts to do his mind, and to act with one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast until the words of God shall be fulfilled. (Darby)
What drives the world?  Money!

When we see this severe economic plague have global implications that possibly will grow worse despite the rulers' best efforts over this next coming period of time, the answer as to how the nations shall attempt to solve this problem becomes a question of where they will procure the money from.  As the economic problem is seen expanding, going from nation to nation in just a few days (2008.10.07) the scripture from Jeremiah 25:32 comes to mind.  Of course, if the calamity or evil refers to these problems is uncertain and can only be known by watching further the events unfolding presently.   Nonetheless, the account in Jeremiah is referring to the End events !  So, the likelihood is strong that the scriptural prophecy below applies to what we are experiencing now.
Jer 25:32, Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts, Lo calamity! going forth from nation to nation,—And a great tempest, shall bestirred up, out of the remote parts of the earth.
(08.10.31) Today,  there was a quote in which the Japanese prime minister Taro Aso says about the present economic problems, that "A harsh storm seen only once in 100 years is raging."  It is uniquely interesting that the Bible uses a similar description on the calamity it depicts.  Surely this is confirmation of sorts that this prophecy applies to this problem.

When the kings look around themselves to search for an answer to their problem, they see near them their lover, a  rich fat whore, Babylon the Great, ripe for the harvesting, ready to give them the infusion of funds they so desperately need.

The logical conclusions, however tentative they have to be, can only lead to this answer. 

In a very short time from today, we can then expect Babylon the Great's final hour to arrive. 

Before going to the Break Point subheading, another point has come up today, today being 2008.10.29, a Wednesday.  That point  turns around the Mark of the Beast.

The Mark of the Beast – Rev 13:16

(2008.10.29) What is this mark of the beast?  At this point, only speculation is possible.  However, a hint was provided today by a David Smick in an article he wrote, "If Entire Countries Go Broke, We'll Go With Them."  This is a newspaper article, so no Internet link is given.

About midway into the article Mr. Smick coins the phrase "today's partially taxpayer-owned, soon-to-be-politicized financial system."   If the world is entering into a period of  taxpayer-owned, politicized financial systems, then this would fit with Revelation's mark of the beast.

Here we are told, " the image of the beast . . . makes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the freemen and the bondmen, that they would give them marks on their right hand, or on their foreheads. 17And so that not any man can buy or sell unless having the mark--the name of the beast or the number of its name. " (Rev 13:16,17, ACV)

Since the beast symbolizes the political world and governments, the mark of the beast clearly indicates control.  How can the political systems get more control of money and the business sector than by owning it !  From this, we can then understand that this prophecy is beginning being fulfilled now.

When the political systems become the controllers of the flow of money to the business sector in the form of loans, credit, etc., these systems are able to exert their influence as to why and who should receive the monetary credit against what return service the political system demands.  Indeed, that is a mark in its own self.  Perhaps that constitutes the mark; namely, money lend on the basis of the business serving the political beast in some fashion.

Break Point - let the count start

The moment Babylon the Great is destroyed, the stopwatch counting days must start.  We have now entered a period of time known.  No longer are we barred from knowing when the end must occur.  These details are discussed here: Rev Twelve  & Rev 12-2. (second link has the details.  The links discuss the ousting of Satan from heaven, the resurrection of the dead saints, and the rapture of the remaining saints)

It would not be surprising if the destruction of Babylon the Great takes place in October or April of  whatever year that it occurs in.  If that holds true, we then count  from that date – which would be year: (####.10.01 or ####.04.01) – one year exactly, and the next part of the prophecy begins unfolding.

That next part would be Dan 11:40-44.

During the first year the report about Babylon's destruction is heard, we need to prepare our hearts.  For in the second year from whichever date happens to be right of the two mentioned above, war shall break out.  Based on the above (if it occurs as said) there shall then be one year of war. 
Jer 51:46, And let not your heart faint, neither fear ye for the tidings that shall be heard in the land; for tidings shall come one year, and after that in another year shall come tidings, and violence in the land, ruler against ruler. (ASV)
This is when the last pushing between the world-powers begins.  We are now seeing the end.

As the links about Revelation chapter twelve explain, from the destruction of Babylon the Great, the end of Armageddon is 6 years 4 months and 20 days.  These years are counted as 360 day years to observe prophetic consistency.

Please be aware that I only put forth the above as one possible way future events may be fulfilled.  I am not inspired by God to know that the above is going to happen as I postulate despite trying to base what I say on the Bible. 
After all, future prophecy is the hardest to get right.
