Light for the Last Days

Signs of the Times – 17 October 2020

1. Coming economic crisis and the rise of the 666 system.

Describing present economic situation in his Zero Hedge website, Tyler Durden writes of the economy under coronavirus lockdown: ‘All of this is certain to trigger a protracted global recession marked by at least 12 months of negative growth, with economic and social displacement the likes of which the world has never seen before. The decision by countries like the UK, France, Italy, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the US to voluntarily implode their economies and place most of their populations under house arrest will have a lasting impact not only on national economies but also the global economy for years to come. In terms of scale, the damage caused to markets and industry has already surpassed the 2008 financial crisis by orders of magnitude, and there’s no end in sight.

To ‘fight the coronavirus’ governments have imploded their real economies and replaced them with nationalised pools of finance earmarked for each section of the economy. This emergency transformation is the same as a wartime mobilisation of an economy, with a heavy focus on the medical and pharmaceutical industrial complex, the military, and selected corporate partners hand-picked by the state. In this brutal and constrained environment, these are some of the only institutions strong enough to remain viable.

The net effect of immediately putting millions of workers onto government welfare rolls and pushing hundreds of thousands of small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMEs) into bankruptcy will be the largest consolidation and transfer of wealth in modern history. Those with enough capital to ride out the crisis will be able to buy-up companies, and even whole industries, for literally pennies on the dollar. Monopolies like Amazon, Google and telecoms giants will consolidate and solidify their market shares as competitors gradually die off and are swallowed-up in receivership. (Note the growing collapse of the High St in the UK).  Formerly independent contractors will now be reliant on government assistance, as will any business qualifying for government ‘relief’ grants and loans. Large corporations will now have governments covering the cost of their payrolls for the duration of the crisis.

There is no semblance of any discernible sound economic model to describe what is now happening with government printing up record amounts of money to cover the enormous cost of the shutdown. For a wealthy country like the US, the Federal Reserve Bank will simply go into overdrive, creating trillions of dollars to be released through various ‘stimulus plans’ and bailouts. The New York Fed is now pumping trillions of new dollars into banks, with the Fed also issuing ‘bridge’ loans directly to businesses. This never happened before in history. The US is also buying up unprecedented amounts of corporate stock in order to keep Wall Street afloat. With these levels of quantitative easing, there are risks of hyper-inflation and other systemic problems. This may be coupled with higher food prices due to supply shortages, and stagnant wages due to a glut in the labour market after the government’s domestic scorched earth economic policies. The end result of all these bailouts (if they ever end) will be exactly as with any war in history: a rapid wholesale transfer of power, control and ownership into centralised government and the central banking cartel.

For individuals and families, this means your savings are wiped-out, your property collapses in value, and your future prospects are dim, at least in the short to midterm, and you will have no choice but to load up on personal and family debt to survive.’

In a similar vein Don Koenig writes

‘The globalists are doubling down on global governance. They see the global coronavirus pandemic and the economic problems it will cause as an opportunity to revise the economic and social systems of the world.  The unwinding of the economies of the world will take many more months to play out as businesses continue to fail and people lose basic income.  This economic collapse will bring disorder and chaos in the streets and cities all over the world. As people lose faith in their currencies and nations grapple with massive debt problems, the globalists will march in with their ‘Global Reset’ plan to save the world.

When the full force of this economic crisis hits, the middle-class will almost be wiped out and the poor will not have enough money to even buy the necessities for life. So, a new globalist world order where necessities are universally promised will gain overwhelming support. It will be a type of international socialism overseen by bureaucratic technocratic authoritarians. Something like the existing communist/fascism of China. However, the world will be calling it something that sounds more positive like “progressivism”. As existing resources of the world become rationed, population reduction will be pushed as a means for those remaining to get more rations.

Since the global restructuring plan will be coming out of Europe this economic crisis could very well end with the rising of the initial ten kings spoken of by Daniel 7 and Revelation 12,13 & 17. The Beast of Revelation rises as the Little Horn among ten initial world leaders. He then grows exceeding great toward the east, the south and toward Israel (Da 8:9).

The elitist reset plan is going to be pushed globally no matter who wins the 2020 election in America. If Trump is reelected, the elite of Europe will largely act like the government of America does not exist. If the Democrats take over, they will just join with the globalists. The demise of America the leftists would bring would soon make America irrelevant anyway. Much the same thing is happening with Great Britain. The elite in Brussels are acting as if Britain cannot remove itself from the EU. What the people of Britain want, seems of no concern to the elitists running Europe. They just go forward with their authoritarian plans.

The shutdowns all over the world proved that the global elite are fully in control. They control the deep state bureaucracies, universities, corporations, media and even most religious institutions. They shut down whatever voices they do not want heard. The elitist corporate run media now tells people all over the world what to think and the masses comply as if they were programmed robots. Most Americans have already been reeducated by their phones to believe whatever they are fed. The last high profile hold out is President Trump. The collectivist Borg want any Trump supporters to know that resistance is futile. The hive intends to take over America using America’s walking dead whether the people like it or not.

When (not if) the Democrats gain the White House, they intend to put down all remaining resistance.  America is the last holdout. The rest of the world will totally fall in line and support an authoritarian globalist technocracy managing every aspect of their lives. Like the Brave New World, the people will think this is the way it has to be. Like Orwell’s 1984, spying on everyone and micromanaging everyone will just be the way it is. Of course those books and many other books not approved by the collective will no longer exist. These books about the future of the human race became reality because the fallen human nature can only bring about such dark realities. The Bible told us this would happen, but the Bible also will be banned under the globalist plan.

The day is soon coming when no one will be able to buy or sell without the access code of the technocracy. Those taking the code will be required to deny reality. Even so, the Lord will soon hit the whole world over the head with His own reality. The great reset plan of God that brings in the Kingdom will crush the great reset plan of Satan’s globalists.’

Another issue relating to the economy is that many shops are now refusing to take cash and saying we must pay using contactless cards only.  The claim is that cash can pass on the virus.  China first raised this as a possibility and began withdrawing bank notes to clean them up.  It is now testing a state-sponsored cryptocurrency known as the DCEP (Digital Currency Electronic Payment).  The aim is to eliminate the use of paper currency and replace it with the new Chinese cryptocurrency, giving China insight into every transaction DCEP is involved in.  Wang Zhenying, president of the Shanghai Gold Exchange, has called for a new “super-sovereign currency system” using this system globally to replace the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. 

Commenting on this Brett Gillette writes: ‘The end of paper money and its replacement with government-sponsored cryptocurrency will put unlimited power at the fingertips of government leaders. Not only does cryptocurrency offer a way to permanently record every financial transaction, but it will also be able to track where you go and what you do. It will track the websites you visit and make note of who your friends are.   While most of this information is already available through tracking of credit and debit cards, mobile phones, and social media profiles, a state-sponsored cryptocurrency will provide unfettered access to this information. It will create a closed, government-controlled economic system where you’ll be dependent on the government’s cryptocurrency to pay for all your needs.

If the government decides they don’t like you, they can turn off your access and freeze you out of the banking system. They’ll be able to decide what you can and can’t buy. They’ll be able to tell you where you can and can’t go. In essence, they’ll have complete control over your life. The coronavirus will accelerate the adoption of state-sponsored cryptocurrencies and the elimination of paper currency as all economic transactions go electronic. The replacement will be either a series of national cryptocurrencies or a single global cryptocurrency.’

From here it will not be too difficult to see how the world progresses towards the 666 system in which people will need a number and a mark to buy and sell: ‘He causes all both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.’ (Revelation 13.16-18). 

2. Prince Charles calls for the ‘Global Reset’ as environmental disasters hit the earth. 

Prince Charles delivered a speech for Climate Week 2020 on 21 September, in which he warned of a looming environmental crisis that will dwarf the negative impact of coronavirus. He described the climate crisis as a ‘comprehensive catastrophe that will dwarf the impact of the pandemic’.  He said the world now has a window of opportunity that requires swift and immediate action to ‘reset the economy for a more sustainable and inclusive future.’  The ‘Global Reset’ requires a radical green agenda as the world moves away from the use of fossil fuels, coal, oil and gas, which have been the main drivers of industrial society and prosperity for the past hundred years or more.

There is plenty to be concerned about in the climate issue.  Bizarre things have been happening with the weather around the world, burning forests, destroying crops and resulting in poor harvests.  There is a potential for food shortages with the UN warning of famine for 2021.

On America’s west coast the skies turned blood red as unprecedented wildfires spread over vast stretches of California and Oregon. More than two million acres burned in California and two hundred thousand acres in Oregon, causing around 500,000 people to flee their homes.  Drought and blazing hot weather are also causing water shortages across much of the US Mid west.

Wildfires in Siberia have covered vast areas of Russian forest and are fuelled by abnormally high temperatures.  They have been burning as far north as the Arctic Circle.  Scientists are warning that, across Siberia, vast swathes of ground – normally frozen all year round – are thawing – with potentially devastating consequences for the climate. As it thaws, the earth is believed to be releasing huge amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas, accentuating the problem of global warming.  It is also causing bizarre bumps and hollows in the landscape, breaking up roads and causing houses to sink.  A massive oil spill near the Arctic city of Norilsk is believed to have been caused by melting permafrost that has accelerated with the region’s warming climate.

As well as fires there have been huge storms battering north America and Asia.  China has been hit by months of torrential rain causing flooding which at one point threatened to bring down the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze river, the largest dam in the world.  The Yangtze River basin, which accounts for 70 percent of China’s rice production, has seen the worst floods since 1939, damaging millions of acres of cropland. The heavy rain has ravaged vast swathes of industrial and agricultural land.  The damage to the rice crop means China may not be able to feed its huge population this year.  There have also been great floods in India, Pakistan, the Korean Peninsula and Indonesia.  Currently huge flood are taking place in East Africa driving as many as 6 million people out of their homes in Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan. 

In the USA a devastating tornado known as a Derecho ripped through several Midwest states the heart of the Corn Belt, leaving more than 1 million acres of destroyed or damaged crops. A lot of the damaged fields were actually growing corn seeds for planting in the 2021 season. Grain stored in silos for distribution across the country was also destroyed.  In the UK there has been a poor harvest as a result of unfavourable weather.  Unusual storms in the Mediterranean have affected agriculture and homes in Italy and Greece.

More than 100 000 livestock animals perished as intense snowstorms hit Patagonia, Argentina, 70 percent of flock at risk.  Patagonia has been gripped by one of its worst winters in the last 20 years, with Rio Negro among the worst affected provinces.  There have also been unusual snow and storms in South Africa and southern Australia. 

The strange weather is blamed on the burning of fossil fuels for energy and transport which is said to be causing the earth’s temperature to heat up to dangerous levels. This is being used as another reason to push for the ‘Global Reset’ that Prince Charles is advocating.  However climate change sceptics say fossil fuels are only responsible for part of change in climate.  Climate is driven by what happens in the sun, winds and ocean currents, which we have no control over. 

Both NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and NASA are warning that we are entering a full blown ‘solar minimum’ with lack of sunspots in the 2020s.  The past effect of the decrease in sunspots is extreme cold weather as happened in the little Ice Age in the 17th century when the Thames regularly froze at London Bridge and ice fairs were held on the river.  Significantly the southern hemisphere has just had extremely cold weather in their winter.  More than 100 000 livestock animals perished as intense snowstorms hit Patagonia, Argentina, 70 percent of flock at risk.  Patagonia has been gripped by one of its worst winters in the last 20 years, with Rio Negro among the worst affected provinces.  There have also been unusual snow and storms in South Africa and southern Australia. 

At the end of September much of Europe suffered a sudden and dramatic drop in temperature. The mercury plunged by between 10 and 15 degrees Celsius in Italyresulting in the coldest September temps there since the early 1970sThe bone-chilling cold, originating from the Arctic, also delivered heavy early-season snow to the most unusual of places: September snow fell on the hills in the greater Rome area as well as in the Lazio region. According to Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, snow rarely ever falls this early in Lazio.  There has also been unusually cold weather in US and Canada east of the Rockies.  If this heralds a cold period, especially in Europe and North America it could create some confusion in the ranks of the climate change activists.  If this is the shape of things to come, they need to get going on the global reset while they can till tell people global warming is the problem.

Also something called the Beaufort Gyre is troubling climatologists.  This is a massive wind-driven current in the Arctic Ocean. The region has been regulating climate and sea ice formation at the top of the world for millennia. Recently, however, something has gone amiss.

But for more than 17 years now, this carousel of ice and freshwater has been spinning faster in its usual clockwise direction, all the while collecting more and more freshwater from three sources: melting sea ice, runoff flowing into the Arctic Ocean from Russian and North American rivers, and the relatively fresh water streaming in from the Bering Sea. 

Today, the Beaufort Gyre now holds as much freshwater as all of the Great Lakes combined, and its continuing clockwise swirl is preventing this enormous volume of ice and cold-freshwater from flushing into the North Atlantic Ocean. Scientists say the gyre will inevitably weaken and reverse direction, and when it does it could expel a massive amount of icy fresh water into the North Atlantic.

Polar oceanographer Andrey Proshutinsky of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has labelled this anticipated surge of water a “ticking climate bomb,” noting that even a partial flush of that growing reservoir –a mere 5 percent– could temporarily cool the climate of Iceland and northern Europe. A larger outflow would actually threaten to shutdown the Gulf Stream, an event that would see ice age conditions sweep Northern and Western Europe almost overnight.  The British Isles are on same latitude as Labrador in Canada, very cold region. 

All of this could throw out the computer models of warming by up to 4 degrees Celsius over the century causing catastrophic climate change results.  The sun, ocean currents and wind are factors we can’t control.  The magnetic north is also moving fast beneath earth’s surface from Canada to Siberia. 

The Bible indicates a crisis in the natural world at the end of days, including an increase in earthquakes (Matthew 24.7), storms (Luke 21.25 – ‘the sea and the waves roaring’.  Admittedly the prophecies sound more like warming than cooling, with prophecies of great heat causing people to be ‘burned’ (Isaiah 24.6, Revelation 16.8-9).  Revelation 8.7-11 speaks of trees and vegetation burned, fish dying in the sea and waters becoming ‘bitter’ (polluted).

All this is another reason why Jesus has to come back to save us.  God is showing us how puny and helpless we are in the face of natural forces.  Our efforts cannot save us.  Only the power of the Lord can save us as God brings His gigantic global reset with the second coming of Jesus Christ.

3. Brothers all for the Pope.  Another way to the New World Order.

The Pope has published an encyclical letter called Fratelli Tutti (Brothers All) calling for some kind of global government to solve the world crisis.  He wrote: 

“The twenty-first century is witnessing a weakening of the power of nation states, chiefly because the economic and financial sectors, being transnational, tend to prevail over the political.  Given this situation, it is essential to devise stronger and more efficiently organized international institutions, with functionaries who are appointed fairly by agreement among national governments, and empowered to impose sanctions,” the pope advises in the 43,000-word text.  In other words these agents of ‘more efficiently organized international institutions’ should form a global government with power over national governments.

He then talks about some form of world authority regulated by law, which, he says, ought at least to promote more effective world organizations, equipped with the power to provide for the global common good, the elimination of hunger and poverty and the sure defence of fundamental human rights.”  Towards this end he calls for a reform of the United Nations Organization, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth,” Francis declares.  Teeth to do what?  Bite and devour any opposition to a new global tyranny backed by a global religious system under the power of the Vatican?

The Pope’s encyclical also calls for a change in property rights so that the immigrant and the refugee has the same right to property as people already living in the country.  He says that the common destination of the earth’s goods “requires that this principle also be applied to nations, their territories and their resources.  Seen from the standpoint not only of the legitimacy of private property and the rights of its citizens, but also of the first principle of the common destination of goods, we can then say that each country also belongs to the foreigner, inasmuch as a territory’s goods must not be denied to a needy person coming from elsewhere.”

In other words this new authority he sees coming into being should have the right to take over all property and resources from a nation and an individual and transfer wealth to the needy, to migrants and to all nations.  This is a form of enforced communism, in which property rights are taken away, something envisaged in the UN’s Agenda 21, seen by many as a plan for world government under the UN.  Covid 19, the climate crisis and the coming financial collapse of nations are triggers for this coming change and the religious and political powers are working for this.

4. Chernobyl revisited.

The other day I chanced to turn on my TV to a channel showing the ‘Chernobyl’ film, a dramatic reconstruction of the nuclear disaster in Ukraine in 1986.  It was at the moment in the film when Soviet leader Gorbachev was being informed that in 48 hours the melting reactor would hit the water tank below it and cause an explosion which would destroy everything within a 30 mile radius, including the other 3 nuclear reactors on the site.  The resulting nuclear explosion would make Ukraine and Belarus (population 60 million) uninhabitable for a hundred years.  Radiation would contaminate water in most of Eastern Europe making life difficult if not impossible there too.  The only way to avoid this was for men to go into the tank filled with radio-active water and open the sluice gate to drain it out.

Three men did this, going on a suicide mission to save the world from catastrophe.  These heroes of Chernobyl were remembered in the memorial which stands there today, showing an angel blowing a trumpet, linking it to the wormwood prophecy of Revelation 8.10-11.  ‘Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.’  Significantly there is a connection in the Russian and Ukrainian languages between the name Chernobyl and the plant that grows by the river there, known as Wormwood.

The world was saved from apocalyptic disaster, but only just.  The event with its connection to Revelation was a warning from God to change our ways before the time of great tribulation comes bringing an end to the world as we know it. Instead of turning to the Lord, governments, religions and people of the world are going farther away from Him – persecution of Christians, wicked laws and corruption, production of ever more dangerous weapons, terrorism and war, and growing apostasy in the church. 

We see signs of God’s judgement coming and the last days’ prophecies being fulfilled.  The Middle East situation lines up with Bible prophecies concerning the restoration of Israel and the conflict over Jerusalem. Now we have the Covid pandemic, the lockdowns around the world and the search for a vaccine backed by biometric ID and a track and trace scheme, leading to a COVI pass for re-entry into society (already happening in China).  We see social distress, institutions closing, jobs going, poverty and huge national debts building up.  There is a prospect of the collapse of the present economic and social order, to be replaced with a cashless society using crypto-currency backed by a technocratic control system with connections to the 666 system of Revelation 13.  We have natural disasters worldwide, earthquakes, volcanoes, great storms, floods, droughts, fires, a locust plague eating up crops across Africa and much of Asia.  These are hitting food production hard with warnings of a coming famine worldwide. 

If you join all the dots together you can see the ‘beginning of sorrows’ period which Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24.7-8, nation against nation, famines, pestilences and earthquakes in various place.  This will lead to the time of ‘great tribulation unlike any that has been or ever will be’, which would cause the end of life on earth if God did not cut it short (Matthew 24.21-22).  Then will come the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory. (Matthew 24.29-30). 

Back in the 1980s around the time of Chernobyl, I began writing Light for the Last Days, with articles about end time prophecy and the coming of the Lord.  A church leader told me this was the wrong message.  We should be telling people about the great revival which is coming with signs and wonders and the church taking over the world and Christianising it before Jesus returns.  Another told me to forget the Second Coming and work for world peace through uniting the world’s religions. I disagreed with both.

30 years on there has been no great revival, but wickedness has increased and the church worldwide is suffering either persecution or apostasy, not ruling the world.  The Pope is working to unite the world’s religions to support a world government in the cause of peace and saving the environment.  The UN and the World Economic Forum are calling for ‘Agenda 21’ and a ‘Global Reset’ to bring this to pass.  Neither will save the world, but may well help the Antichrist to come to power.  Sinister forces are working to suppress the message which offers ‘the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us.’  Titus 2.11. 

So what is to be done?  Soon Jesus will come to take His church to Himself in the event we know as the Rapture of the Church.  In the meantime God wants us to get the message of the Gospel out and tell people that ‘God now commands all people everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.’  Acts 17.30-31. 

We have produced a booklet, 10 Signs of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, which explains the current situation in the light of Bible Prophecy and shows how to find salvation in Jesus Christ.  We have also produced an A5 leaflet to give out to people on the streets or through their doors, ‘SOS 2020 – What is happening to our world?’  We are happy to let you have as many of these as you wish.  Something to give to your unsaved friends or family.  Details from Light for the Last Days, Box BM-4226, London, WC1N 3XX or
