DOXOLOGY: Preparation or Victim?
Among the more difficult tasks in understanding and deciphering events prophesied to take place during the coming future End Times (or Last Days) are specific determinable correlations between events and their dates of occurrence. This is particularly cogent when trying to clarify the challenges presented by descriptions in the Old Testament by prophets such as Daniel and Ezekiel, alongside New Testament prophetic visions by John in the last book of the bible; “Revelation”.
If you’ve had the time to read my series’ “Hidden in Plain View”, “Out of the Shadows”, or “Time Lines” (www.manaopublishing.com/articles) concerning posited End Times events and their consequences for believers and non-believers alike, you’ll notice events are related to spiritual growth and purpose rather than exclusively focusing on when they will actually occur.
Many think the timing of events presented in the book of Revelation are sequential. It’s believed by others this bible text’s events are not necessarily chronological. This series (Doxology) is an attempt to frame explanation and sequence by distillation to show readers connections between prophesy and existential reality as future history revealed. More specific reading and applied extrapolations of End Times events are available in my new series, “The Final Decade.”
As with previous postings the underpinning effort herein is to provide comprehensive understanding for those desiring to know more. And precautions for those who may experience firsthand described events of the ‘Last Days.’ In either case for readers now or in the future, the fundamental belief paving the way of salvation is encapsulated in these two scriptural references: 1Corinthians 15:1-4, and Romans 10:9-10, 17.
These hold for the believer in Christ, the foundational pillar of salvation’s redemption. For the few reading today, there is comfort in stepping on the spiritual path. However, its poignancy for many during the strife and struggle of life in the Last Days will be invaluable. Whether today or in the Tribulation years ahead the taproot of salvation remains understanding the cognitive and spiritual relevance of salvation’s scripture.
Let’s examine two global actions that will occur in the near future which illustrate the power of preparation verses victimization. The first is a reset or reconstruct of 'fiat' to digital currencies. This action may very well turn out to be a form of financial fraud for those who have put their faith in paper money. Effective Jan 25, 2021 the U.S. Federal Reserve is scheduled to consider and possibly enact steps to establish for implementation a new Central Bank ‘digital currency’ model.
The easiest way to understand this is to know that the ‘Fed’s’ digital currency system (“Fed Dollars”) will eventually become everyone’s ‘bank.’ This action will accomplish several things. It will gradually eliminate the banking system as we know it and additionally, it will consolidate control of the U.S. financial system.
These changes will most likely be incremental over the next few years. However, by mid-decade replacement of the U. S. (and possibly other nations’) fiat currency with “digital dollars" should be accomplished or well on its way to effective implementation. The U.S. Federal Reserve’s accommodation to this monetary modification will probably be initially employed through two or more innocuous methods; first by government agencies' payments (i.e., Social Security, Disability, Annuities, IRS, Health and Human Service program recipients) by transferring their fund beneficiary payees as the first ‘clients’ of this new credit and debit program.
Second, within commercial retail buying and selling exchanges. Use of scare tactics as an attempt to curtail or stop pandemic viral transmissions wrapped up in propaganda similar to; “The paper money you come in contact with is tainted, spreading the virus.” Or, “Stop using paper (fiat) currency and protect yourself, family and others.” Or, “We will curtail all paper money usage and stop the spread of virus.”
Instead of payments being received by individuals and groups as is now the case, future ‘Fed Account’ holders will be credited electronically their funds through the receiver’s identity account. All purchase and debt transactions will be credited and debited from accounts by electronic digitization transfer. In this way, we can move steadily to a ‘cashless society.’ These new transaction steps will likely be presented and promoted under auspicious banners labeled as ‘Equality Distributions, Safety and Security, Universal Basic Income’ or some other tag line/promotional program name. Ultimately, at stake is national and then, global financial control. In a cashless scenario all transactions will become trackable, traceable, and taxable.
This type of Central Bank cashless ‘auto credit/debit system’ is currently being used in Sweden, tested in China, and soon to be operational in Switzerland. Many of the world's Central Banks are somewhere on the Digital Wallet Account path. It’s being considered, evaluated, and proposed by approximately eighty percent (or sixty-six) of the world's fiat currency central banks. A joint venture of exploration instituted and accepted by central banks around the world will allow the global stage to be set for an eventual one-world currency system of centralized electronic credit/debit accounts.
What does a new financial world system like this one mean? When the prophesied worship of the Antichrist is dictatorially ordained and instituted, the global financial system necessary for worldwide commerce adherence in line with such an order will be fully functional. The dictate to possess an identity ‘mark’ for participation in the global ‘buying and selling’ system will be easily implemented. The ‘banking’ system necessary to make global commerce transactional recording possible will already be established and operational. (Rev 13:17, 14:11, 16:2).

The Final Decade
The Lord God does not wish us to be ignorant about His plan for our spiritual redemption and reconciliation. He does however, desire we employ discernment and patience regarding His prophetic design pertaining to the ‘end of the age’ or ‘End Times’. Jesus warns us as to his Second Coming by stating, “that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” [Mt 24:36, Mk 13:32]. However Old Testament prophets, New Testament apostles, even Jesus himself did in fact give us an ‘event’ chronology to study and apply in preparation for His “second coming” arrival as it relates to that specific moment for every believer in Christ.
The information contained herein is based on readings and study of biblical scripture. I share it with you to help make bible prophesy less intimidating and more relevant in your life and future. I am not claiming to know, nor project dates that the following events may or will occur. All calculations are based on a three-hundred and sixty-day Jewish calendar year. The purpose of this series is to aid listeners, readers, and followers in preparation for prophesied pre-millennial kingdom occurrences. And to help explain the path of spiritual salvation through the shed blood of Christ, should you meet your mortal demise prior to His second coming.
I am sharing what I believe will be significant and observable events prophesied to take place, affecting people around the world during the coming final decade of this world’s present age. When will ‘The End’ start? Many prophetic precursors have already begun or have taken place. When will the ‘Last Days’ begin? I believe the initiating ‘spark’ is on the horizon, with the advent of the coming “Ezekiel War.” [Ez 38-39]
I encourage you today, come to personally know God’s unconditional love, mercy and forgiveness through His Holy Spirit enveloped by and contained within a voluntary, surrendered heartfelt and soul dedicated relationship with Jesus, the Christ/Messiah/Savior. When one spiritually accepts and trusts in Jesus’ thoughts, words and deeds through faith and belief, no matter when death may occur, that individual is better prepared for the promise of everlasting life in the presence of the Holy Trinity; Father, Son and Spirit.
There will be many who doubt, mock, or scoff at what I am about to share. So be it. We each choose for ourselves who and what we will believe. These are neither predictions nor efforts to entice, coerce or frighten. These are my determined understandings based on the study of biblical scripture. My commission is neither to convince nor convert. My task is to sow seeds that expose readers to the possibility and process of attaining everlasting life through spiritual rebirth by belief in Jesus as the Christ/Messiah.
The choice to believe in Jesus or not is yours and yours alone. Should you decide to heed and respond to these observable events, perhaps when they come to pass, you will remember how to avoid their consequences. Or at least be redeemed by the blood of Christ should you be unable to sidestep the outcomes that await their manifestations.
Join me next time in Part 2 as we recognize the pivotal moment of God’s intervention.

DOXOLOGY: Preparation or Victim?
What “Lie” could be so great as to deceive the entire world and entice its inhabitants as global serfdom followers to pay homage to a single individual?
How profound would the lead up need to be for that Lie to be accomplished?
How convincing would its supposed merits need be to coerce the entire world?
God tells us that wickedness through belief and action paves a way for the coming “Man of Lawlessness” [2 Thessalonians 2:11]. However, his arrival will be preceded by numbing preparations that enable “the Lie” to be believed and go unquestioned.
Such a devoted delusion would have to be ensconced within a situation so life threatening, and conversely, so sincere in its belief of life saving certainty that it's irresistible to all but the most Christ grounded and spiritually confident. Its success would need to appear guaranteed without any down sides. What could produce such a singular entity utilizing both sides of the same coin, with hope in the face of failure and success in the light of disaster?
The lies preceding the Lawless One will make the Lie of the Lawless One seem complete and competent. The first part of this Lie is a unifying delusion that victory in the face of our ‘climate change’ crisis is achievable by its recognition. The second part of the Lie is that economic security will be guaranteed within the advent of an institutional one world financial system.
These two predated parts of "the Lie" are necessary for operational and staged execution so existence of the Lie embodied in one man’s worldwide tyrannical rule can and will be accomplished. According to God’s planned design for mankind’s salvation as described in ‘End Times and Last Days’ prophesies. [2 Thessalonians 2:9] The world must be deceived to desire the Lie, so when it is unveiled by the Man of Perdition, it will seem to be the logical next step. Where received without resistance its rewards will be coveted and its punishments feared enough to move men and women to the pinnacle of a life or death choice.
This Lie has several precursor events which must be advanced and accepted by the public using labels which are not offensive, frightening, or absurd. No matter which are touted in the media or presented by political propaganda messaging machines posited as, “The Great Reset, Building Back Better, New Normal, New World Order” or some other plebian pabulum pronouncement, the outcomes will be the same. Preparing the mass of humanity for global change old to new, which will set into motion for the Antichrist heralded opportunity to step in and take political and economic control.
The constant drip of multiple small lies daily eroding the presence of truth establishes a pattern that invariably builds a barrier in the psyche of the listener. In this way the “Big Lie” makes perfect sense for those who no longer understand, pursue, or desire truth. Many have experienced this phenomenon over the last five years from daily exposure to the oratory and written rhetoric of Donald Trump’s fabrications and outright deceptions. He has single handedly reversed the course of two hundred and fifty years of commonly held collective civil belief that truth matters.
As with others in history who have come before, his presence on the world stage has led astray millions of people to a point where they now blindly follow without query or reason exceedingly absurd, harmful or damaging presuppositions affecting behaviors that lead away from truth. Trump and his ilk will continue to prepare and mentally massage the way for the Antichrist to step into the spotlight of a world frothing at the mouth, and with perked ears open wide to hear “the Lie”.
If you know and trust in truth then you are keen on knowing what to expect, and from whom. With the veil lifted efforts and actions of prophesy are revealed. Those who desire to know the truth of the End Times have opportunities to recognize the signs, events and personalities fulfilling Last Days prophesies.
Bible prophesy tells us exactly what is to take place in the future leading to Christ’s return to gather his believing followers. More importantly these prophesies also explain to the reader and hearer what the consequences of the coming premillennial events will be. By knowing the precursors one can be prepared to survive the struggle while understanding how the fallout will affect humanity.
God plays no favorites. This information is given freely through love and grace to the reader of biblical texts. His unconditional love, compassion, and mercy is provided to every living soul. Recognition of Christ Jesus as the advent, arbitrator, and conduit in this spiritual relationship is the only prerequisite for the understanding that leads to eternal life. Our individual decision of acceptance awaits each of us as the prophesied future unfolds in the coming years.
The changes on our horizon continue to creep into our life systems to be embraced, enabling forward movement item by item through cultural normative alterations and governmental legislations. These life arenas are now in undeniable and irreversible flex as their bases are compromised and consolidated by the financial and political elites around the world.
With unfolding time and impending circumstances each change will occur across every nations’ financial, social, and economic landscapes. Cascading the pronounced events necessary for future history’s fulfillment according to God’s plan and design. If prophecy about End Times events are true and therefore inevitable, these step-by-step incremental changes must take place. Knowing this equation, nothing happening in our world today is surprising or unpredictable for the listener and hearer of God’s prophetic word.
Now is the time to prepare. For your sake and that of your family, today is the day to commit to learning more. These things will come to be. You can believe and understand, or you can risk everything and be led astray in ignorance and pride. The choice, as always, is yours.
Join me next time for Part 2 when we look at shattering economic foundations.
