“The upcoming G20 meeting in London, England will likely result in the failure of all nations to agree on anything on a unified basis, which will trigger major market declines in the weeks to follow.

Investors should get out of equities and bonds and into precious metals or cash (not U.S.!) exclusively.

This next wave of financial mayhem will also catalyze elevated levels of civil unrest where unemployment is highest and where food shortages will soon begin to underscore how serious the crumbling global infrastructure really is.

Governments throughout the G20 will likely react by protecting domestic supplies of energy and food as public pressure to solve the problems forces governments to act according to popular sentiment.

Organized crime groups such as drug cartels and bankers will take advantage of the growing chaos to perpetrate their own interests to the detriment of (mostly) urban centers.

We are progressing solidly toward a situation where lawlessness emanates from the top down, and leadership by example is the most to blame. The U.S. government is being implicated more and more in duplicitous acts that appear to provide cover and escape for high net worth bankers who have supported the election of governments with billions in ill-gotten gains for the last twenty years.”

The Lawless One Will Be Revealed

Nearly 2000 years ago God wrote through the Apostle Paul:

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12 (NKJV)

lawless-oneGod will use the lawlessness that is simmering to set the stage for the lawless one to be revealed. He will come forth to bring peace to a world in financial and political chaos. He will offer the solution that will result in renewed financial stability and prosperity, but only on his terms and with his control. He will have his roots in the Babylon whore spoken of in Revelation. But we know her end.

“The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’ And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. babylon-has-fallenThe merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’ They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’ Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!”Revelation 18:9-20 (NKJV)
