Genesis 6:11-12 says: “Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.” However, “Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord” (verse 8).
As in the Days of Noah
When Jesus described the events surrounding His second coming, He said, “And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all” (Luke 17:26-27).
In the New Testament, Peter describes Noah as a preacher of righteousness (2 Peter 2:5), which means the people living in the days of Noah were warned. In the Luke 17 passage, Jesus pointed out how the people of Noah’s day were not concerned about their spiritual condition. They were living their lives without a single thought of the judgment of God.
MSG Sphere in Las Vegas
Have you seen or heard about the new MSG Sphere? It’s Las Vegas’ newest venue. Its official opening is set for September; however, it was taken for a test run for the Fourth of July. This is the world’s largest spherical structure standing 366 feet tall — 61 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty — and an unbelievable 516 feet wide.
What is this structure? Its real function is to be an entertainment venue designed to hold nearly 20,000 in attendance. That’s on the inside. The real showstopper is the outside, where 1.2 million LED screens change color and graphics. One moment it is a huge eyeball looking over the Las Vegas strip, then it becomes the moon, then it turns into a basketball, and so on. According to local news reports, the cost of building this structure is said to be $3.44 billion. That’s a billion with a “B”!
The world is heading towards a financial crisis if not an economic collapse, and yet we are spending billions of dollars on a nearly 40-story sphere that lights up the Las Vegas strip. I can safely assume that when this venue officially opens in September, people will be spending their dollars heading to watch whatever events this venue hosts. As in the days of Noah…
Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs)
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an organization of 190 countries. Here is the link to the IMF website listing all of the member nations.
An IMF staff report dated March 29, 2023, said, “The global central banking community is actively exploring Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs), which may have a fundamental impact on both domestic and international economic and financial stability.” This report also said, “Over 40 countries have approached the IMF to request assistance through CBDC capacity development.”
A recent CBDC survey “covered a record 81 central banks, representing close to 76 percent of the world’s population and 94 percent of global economic output. The survey found that nine out of 10 central banks are now exploring CBDCs, with half developing or running concrete experiments.”
What does all this mean?
Central banks are increasingly pondering whether to issue their digital currencies to the general public. Here is the scary part — the IMF announced that they would not allow national currencies for member nations. This means that no government can have its own digital currencies. Instead, the digital currency will be a global currency. Last month at a conference in Rabat, Morocco, IMF managing director Kristalina Georgieva told conference participants that the transnational agency is developing a global platform for central bank-controlled digital currencies. She publicly confirmed, “At the IMF, we are working on the concept of a global CBDC platform.”
IMF member countries submit to annual “surveillance” (ie. monitoring) of their policies by the IMF. Each nation’s policies and goals should connect all nations with a global currency, not “fragment” the world by using their own currency. If one works backward from Revelation 13, one can see how the Antichrist system is being positioned right before our eyes.
Digital Currencies and Digital Identification
If (one could say when) this system is implemented, these Central Bank Digital Currencies will impact all the residents of each IMF country. All citizens will be required to possess proper “digital identification” or they will not be permitted to access the new global digital financial system. When central banks all over the globe roll out their new central bank international digital currencies, to use those currencies, you must “prove that you are who you say you are.” The only way to do that is with the new global system of digital identification which is currently in the process of being introduced.
The gap from freedom to global control is shortening as the world is mesmerized by a forty-story sphere. As in the days of Noah, people are eating, marrying, and carrying on without concern for their spiritual condition or the coming wrath of God.
Maranatha, Lord Jesus!
