Man's failure to obey God's laws,
especially the ones regarding money, is a central theme of prophecy.
The Israelites were defeated by Babylon due to Israel's failure to obey God's
command to forgive all debts every 7 years and every 50 years. This
resulted in the punishment of the 70 years of Babylonian captivity as observed
by Daniel. But, still, Israel did not repent, and so, the punishment was
increased, and from this, we get a time period in the future often called
"Daniel's 70th week", also known as the "seven year tribulation".
During this future time, I expect to see the fulfillment of the "Mark of the Beast" (666) from Revelation 13. Before
the tribulation, before the mark of the beast, I believe that the Lord Jesus
Christ will come for his bride, to rapture her, and take her away to heaven for
7 years, to return with her after the tribulation, to rule on earth.

before the rapture, perhaps well before the year 2030, I believe there will come
a world government, which will be the 7th beast of Revelation 17-18, that comes
prior to the antichrist's 8th beast government with the "mark of the
beast". If the 8th beast is a world government, then it stands to reason
that the 7th beast will also be a world government. But the money of the
7th beast will likely be silver and gold (not the 666 mark of the beast system);
just as all prior world governments in human history and Bible prophecy used
gold for money. God sets up kingdoms on earth according to his will
(Daniel 4). Using gold as money brings peace and prosperity (along with
covetousness), which are described in Ezekiel 38-39, which I expect will take
place prior to the rapture, and prior to the return of the Lord Jesus.
Why is the mark of the beast money
system so evil? It is a monetary system based on everything the opposite
of what God gave us to use as money: which is gold and silver. The 666
system is a permission-based, cooersive, forceful, 'no freedom' type of an
economic system. The 666 system is the exact opposite of the freedom and
prosperity that results from using gold and silver as

Here are a few of my VERY BEST Bible Studies on the
subject of money, in the order I made my discoveries:
- False weights and measures are an abomination.
- The dollar is a broken promise to pay an unjust measure of silver or gold.
- The borrower is the servant to the lender
- You were bought for a price (with the blood of Jesus) so do not become the
slaves of men.
- Usury (charging interest on a debt) is forbidden, except to a foreigner.
- Although Jews could lend to strangers, Christians are told to love their

always been another choice: God's .999 fine silver and gold.

Many people think the mark of the
beast is the social security number. It certainly comes awfully close, and
more each day as its use is becoming quite mandatory in ever increasing
ways. In 1999, I scoffed at the idea that the social security number was
the mark of the beast. But by 2001, I decided to take a stand, and I found
out something quite shocking!

- Pseudo-Ephraem's Pre-tribulation Rapture
Statement (c. 374-627) "All the saints and elect of God are gathered
together before the tribulation, which is to come, and are taken to the Lord,
in order that they may not see at any time the confusion which overwhelms the
world because of our sins."

The Restoration of Apostles and Prophets In the Catholic Apostolic Church.
