Modern Idolatry

Part 7 – Hijack the Earth’s Money

The world today is coming together with one mind.  This is no accident but is rather being done under the careful guidance of so-called “elites” who wish to re-establish a union of church and state. That system existed for thousands of years and appears to be making a resurgence in the last days.

Revelation 13 describes a situation that we are watching take place today: Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb, and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast… It works great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men;  and by the signs which it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast, it deceives those who dwell on earth, bidding them make an image for the beast which was wounded by the sword and yet lived; and it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast should even speak, and to cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.  Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.”

In a discussion about modern idolatry, one cannot over-emphasize the god known as money.  It is power and control.  Buying and selling means life or death.  In this section we will see how important it is for anyone wishing to control the world to hijack the earth’s money supply.  A one-world cashless currency could certainly usher in a system of forced pagan “worth-ship” on a scale that we have not seen since the Roman Empire (what Revelation calls “the first beast”).

A Small Group of Dominant Men

Shortly after World War I, President Woodrow Wilson wrote: “I am a most unhappy man.  I have unwittingly ruined my country.”  He gave himself this harsh evaluation mainly because he allowed the creation of the Federal Reserve.  He expounded on this non-governmental cartel, writing “A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit.  We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”  Fiercely opposed by presidents Lincoln (shot), Garfield (shot), and Jackson (shots from two guns attempted), the private central bank scheme was tenaciously attempted for over 100 years.  Its story, however, is never told in history class.

The scheme may have remained a secret, except that twenty years after the signing of the Federal Reserve Act, Citibank president Frank Vanderlip came clean in an autobiographical article in the Saturday Evening Post: “There was an occasion near the close of 1910, when I was as secretive—indeed as furtive—as any conspirator…I do not feel it is any exaggeration to speak of our secret expedition to Jekyll Island as the occasion of the actual conception of…the Federal Reserve System.”  The entire story of how “banksters” Vanderlip, Rothschild, J.P. Morgan, Rockefeller, Aldrich and Warburg tricked President Wilson into making their banking cartel constitutional (alongside other deceptions) can be found in great detail in Edward G. Griffin’s book Creature from Jekyll Island.  Suffice it to say, the legacy of this world-changing event lives on to this day, with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke returning to Jekyll Island to celebrate the “Fed’s” centennial in 2010!

The significance of these private bankers turning their cartel agreement into law is summarized by Joseph Plummer in Tragedy and Hope 101: “They can now create, destroy, and direct as much money as they see fit.  They currently earn interest on every single dollar in existence, because every single dollar in existence has been created and loaned to the economy by them.”  With the power to print trillions of dollars at will, it is easy to understand why no one dares to criticize this beast.  Indeed, Wilson remarked of this hidden hand of power that was “too big to jail”: “Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, afraid of something.  They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

Sadly, this “pervasive” power is what put Wilson in the White House, and he regrettably did their bidding, making “an image for the beast,” one that has a masonic pyramid, all-seeing eye, and says “Novus Ordo Seclorum” (New World Order)!  Wilson was tricked into collecting “temporary” federal taxes (not unlike the 666 talents Solomon levied in 1 Kin. 10:14) to cover the cost of “foreign entanglements.” After campaigning on keeping the country out of the war, he sent U.S. troops to Europe to protect the bankers who had loaned money to the British and French.  Wilson’s final act was the League of Nations, a plan for a new world order that would clear a way for the United Nations and N.A.T.O.  H.G. Wells had this to say of the remorseful President Wilson: “He ceased to be a common statesman.  He became a Messiah.”  From the perspective of the moneychangers with whom Wells shared beliefs about shaping the world, Wilson could not have done a better job of bringing us closer to their utopia.

Moneychangers Are Idol-pushers

Moneychangers have been with us since the time of Jesus, literally making “money from nothing.” This is no exaggeration since the principle of fractional lending allows banks to lend (and collect interest on) ten times the amount in their reserves!  This is why a “bank run” results in collapse.  Of all the evil people that Jesus encountered in the gospels, the moneychangers were the only group that he physically attacked: “And making a whip of cords, he drove them all, with the sheep and oxen, out of the temple; and he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables” (Jn. 2:15).  Mammon is truly the preferred form of idolatry for New Testament Jews.  Jesus splits no hairs when he says flatly “You cannot serve God and Mammon.” Usury (the collection of interest) is forbidden under Mosaic law.  Earlier, we discussed how covetousness and idolatry are one and the same.  We also mentioned that the banks of Ephesus were tied directly into the city’s main industry: idolatry of Diana.  Today’s economic system is no different, and it is the international/merchant/investment bankers who are the “den of thieves” that wields international sovereignty over most of the planet.

Like moneychangers, we too can fall into a morally ambiguous trap when we invest in “Babylon,” purchasing stock in weapons, fleshly entertainment, drugs, and debt.  We should remember that the frenzied Babylon trading market in Revelation 18 is responsible for the blood of “all who have been slain on earth!”  We should consider whether it is becoming of a member of the body of Christ to profit from others’ misery.  Weapons, drugs, and debt are some of the biggest money-makers in our portfolios.  To be profitable, these investments require endless war, endless poverty, and endless disease.  Is it time to diversify?  Babylon “futures” are falling fast!

Money is perhaps the falsest of false gods.  A dollar is a debt, an I.O.U.  Since the 1970s, it is all fiat currency, printed at will, lent out in amounts vastly larger than all resources in existence.  Beyond nothing, it is a black hole.  The Bible succinctly sums up the unfathomable situation that exists today: “Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, and never satisfied are the eyes of men” (Prov. 27:20).  There is 60 times more debt in the world than goods and services in existence!  When the Babylon market crashes “in a single hour” (Rev. 18:19) do we really want to be under that heap of ruins?  Do we want all our hopes and dreams and future plans to be “like a great millstone” which an angel casts into the sea (Rev. 18:21)?  “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”  Let us rather “Keep your life free from love of money and be content with what you have; for he has said, “I will never fail you nor forsake you (Heb. 13:5).”

Usury (loaning money at interest) was against the Law in the Old Testament, yet most people do not consider it immoral.  In the 18th century, however, moneychangers hit a new moral low, starting in the Napoleonic wars when international banking families like the Rothschilds lent money to both sides, while using fake news to manipulate the markets in London.  As kings and queens went further into debt financing their side, the moneychangers took their money and, in effect, their place as new royalty.  Again, in World War II they lent to both sides, this time spawning a permanent “military industrial complex” as well as a hijacking of university scientific research.  It became clear to anyone “following the money” that countries no longer mattered.  Those who controlled the world were not kings with borders, but supra-national banking cartels.

The U.S. has had two presidents who tried to “buck the system” and print their own money outside of the usurers’ high interest: Lincoln (greenbacks) and Kennedy (silver notes).  Both were assassinated.  Shockingly, two recent presidential candidates, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, have mustered the courage to say: “End the Fed!” leading some observers to wonder if there are still chinks in the world-controllers’ armor, at least in terms of presidential elections.

A Monolithic and Ruthless Conspiracy

President John F. Kennedy said: “the very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.”  He went on to describe how everything has been hijacked by hidden conspirators: “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence, on infiltration instead of invasion, subversion instead of elections, intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day.  It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.”

Kennedy did not have time to name the members of the “monolithic and ruthless conspiracy,” but Congressman Larry McDonald named one in 1976, prior to his accidental plane crash death: “The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control.  Do I mean conspiracy?  Yes, I do.  I am convinced there is a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.”

In school we are taught that capitalism and communism are opposites, but one-world controllers know communism means no more competition or market volatility to worry about.  Indeed, Rockefeller’s penchant for communism is obvious in a 1973 N.Y. Times op-ed where he writes “the social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.”  This was a bold statement, considering that Mao’s “Great Leap Forward” social experiment resulted in the deaths of 60 million from death camps and starvation.  We will discuss the Rockefeller Foundation’s obsession with population numbers in a future chapter.

The Chase-Manhattan Chairman David Rockefeller was well aware of the accusations that many people like Congressman McDonald leveled against him, despite the army of public relations spin doctors who portrayed him as a “philanthropic” saint.  Rockefeller wrote in his memoirs: “Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world if you will.  If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and am proud of it.”

Mark of the Beast

According to the prophet Daniel, the kingdoms of the earth will stand as one when Christ returns (Dan. 2:44).  The “one mind” of globalist humanism is also mentioned in Revelation 17:12,13. Unifying countries into regions and regions into a One World Order is the globalist plan, and it seems to be progressing well.  In 1994 a full page ad in the New York Times summarized Rockefeller’s achievements:  “1994…The IMF and World Bank…1945, San Francisco: The United Nations…1994…The World Trade Organization…History knows where it is going…The World Trade Organization, the third pillar of the New World Order, along with the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund.”

To create this beast, the International Monetary Fund and World bank are methodically bankrupting every nation and eroding every institution that stands in the way of a single digital world currency.  As Richard Gardner, adviser to President Carter wrote in the Council on Foreign Relations’ journal Foreign Affairs: “In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up…an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.”  And Ronald Reagan seemed to agree: “But, no national currency will do—only a world currency will work.”

Most people are aware of PayPal and Facebook’s recent attempts at owning the global currency.  Microsoft just filed for its “666” patent (actually #2020-060606) which enables exchanges of cryptocurrencies by using a person’s biometrics and bio responses as I.D. instead of passwords or complex codes.  No empire (beast) likes its subjects using cash, because of the tax money it loses out on with every “under the table” transaction.  It is interesting to note that 666 only occurs one other time in scripture, where it refers to tribute.  ADHAAR, the cashless system that they are trying to develop in India to make sure no exchange of credits happens without the banks’ knowledge.  It uses biometrics (the scanning of face, eyes and fingerprints) as personal identification.  In China, cash is all but disappeared, with even beggars using Alibaba, the digital system!

The push for “REAL ID” means biometric artificial intelligence identities for Americans.  The push for “one chip to rule them all” has taken off in countries such as “E”stonia (Estonia), where everything to do with finances, medical records, and government records are combined in a single chip.  Every vote, signature, license, bill, check-up, etc. is done in cyberspace in “E”stonia.  If not, the “e”police will intercept!  They even have a biobank which collects and owns your DNA!  Naturally, “no one can buy or sell without the [chip]” in these prototype countries.  And if you already have everything in a single chip (on a card), why not take the small step to insert that chip into your hand?  This too, is being done (voluntarily…so far) in countries like Sweden.

Even in America, several corporations offer this “service” to their employees.  “I have the chip” is a refrain that is heard at every grocery store across America as people insert their chips.  The insertion is even giving way to a mere waving…of the right hand!  As we watch the literal fulfillment of the mark of the beast enacted, we can take heart that golden-headed Babylon’s days are near their end.  But will we have the “endurance of the saints” who “conquer?”
