Current monetary policy will end badly

I have often argued that the current economic, fiscal, and monetary policy in the US will create conditions that will enable the Beast to gain dominion over America.  Drastic change is needed move America towards a different destiny.

A breakup of the current EU?

In the past we have argued that a breakup of the EU as it is currently structured is consistent with the prophecies of Revelation.  Consensus interpretation of the relevant scriptures is that the Beast will come to lead a 10 nation confederation, and the current EU has 28 member nations.  We concede that there is … Continue reading “A breakup of the current EU?”
