Hi, Everybody! Let's get this discussion on the road. Grab a cup of some Black Tiger. That stuff is stout! If you're not awake, I promise you will be! If you don't need waking up, there's a carafe of some Double-Roasted French. That will at least light up your taste buds!
For some folks, no doubt, it seems like I've slipped a cog somewhere in talking about a series of geopolitical and geoeconomic events as I began to do in the last Coffee Break, but it is important for you to see what John saw and prophesied in Revelation 18. I'll get back to the narrative I was sharing last week in a few minutes, but let me begin by showing you the first eight verses of chapter 18:
"And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her."
In earlier Coffee Breaks in this series, I've noted how we have this distinction between the "King of Babylon" and the feminine picture of the Spirit of Jezebel personified in "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." Notice again how John opens up this passage as he refers to Babylon strictly in a feminine gender.
I've noted how this Babylonian spirit is part and parcel of the structured church world with its systematized and canned dogmas and doctrines, as well as its two modes of governance -- (1) Hierarchical, with tiers of ascending leadership and authority eventually vested in one individual or a very small group of individuals; and (2) Congregational (or Democratic) with primary authority vested in the masses, making the "leadership" answerable to a voting process -- both of which subvert the plan of the Lord for Ekklesia and replace Theocratic leadership with Humanistic leadership veiled as the leadership of the Lord Jesus Christ. THIS is some of that harlotry to which John refers.
That's a mouthful, I know, but that's the essence of "the doctrine of the Nicolaitans" as described in Revelation 2. Within our "Charismatic" church world, we've come to recognize apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers (generally referred to as the "five-fold ministries") and yet, so much of the contamination of the Nicolaitan doctrine has still pervaded the Charismatic churches.
There are so many wanna-be apostles (who freely refer to themselves as "Apostle so and so") and wanna-be prophets (who also take the label unto themselves as a title of honor) who easily, and without discernment, mix some real prophetic utterances with false prophecies that tickle the ears of the listeners.
I grew up watching the true apostolic realm manifested in my father, but to all the religious world, he was nothing more than "a missionary." Dad would have been horrified at the thought of being referred to as an apostle. Even his denominational brethren cringed when I described his ministry in that manner at his funeral where folks came from all over the world.
Folks, there is a real separation going on in the body of Christ -- a separation between those who walk in real apostolic and prophetic anointing, and those who may sincerely desire and aspire to those ministries but have never been anointed for it, who wind up doing damage to the body. There is a clear -- and growing clearer -- distinction between those whom God has approved and sent forth with His authority and anointing, and those who lack His approval and simply go forth spouting doctrines, dogmas, and formulas pretending to be the servants and representatives of the Kingdom. In fact, they don't have a clue what Kingdom living is all about!
Then of course, there are people who've been shoved into evangelistic ministry because they're "supposed to lead souls to Christ" almost immediately after they've been "saved" themselves. They are babes in the Lord who are supposed to be bringing more babies into the Kingdom, and as a result the body of Christ has been weak, lacking in true authority, and spiritually sickly, still living off the milk bottle and pabulum. What you see in the church reflects our society as well -- kids producing more kids, little more than babies themselves emotionally, psychologically and spiritually, creating a society so immature that it is falling into ruin without spiritual and moral compass.
Isaiah put it even more succinctly as he prophesied of the day in which we live.
"The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves. Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." (See Isaiah 3:9-12) And HERE we have a picture of some of the abominations to which John refers.
[Now, PLEASE! Just because I've quoted from Isaiah's prophecy, don't someone get the nutty idea that I'm opposed to women in places of leadership, or that I have some bone to pick with women in ministry. Della is about the clearest evidence I can present against that! She has both the anointing and a command of the kind of authority that can only come from Father God. I'm talking about the anointing that comes when one is commissioned and sent forth in the authority and power of God to accomplish His rhema to them! What Isaiah was prophesying against was the spirit of Jezebel which had pervaded and contaminated the nation.]
One more example, and I'll get off this. Several years ago I was introduced to a rather prominent evangelical pastor and church leader who had a sizeable congregation. We sat at lunch one day and I asked him how the Lord called him into the ministry. He looked blankly at me for a minute, and then responded, "When I was in high school, I knew I needed to pick some kind of career. I looked at the pastor of the church we attended and decided that would be a good thing to do. When I graduated from high school, I picked what seemed like a good seminary (he named it) and went there. After graduating, the denomination thought I was a good fit for this church and sent me here."
There was absolutely no concept of being called, anointed or commissioned by Holy Spirit. It was nothing more than an intellectual decision that put him there. That experience, unfortunately, is not the exception. Over the years Della and I have both run into ministers of virtually every stripe who could tell us a very similar reason for being "in the ministry." We both have stories that would make you ill, were they to be repeated, and it isn't worth repeating, other than to amplify my earlier comment about the clear line of delineation taking place in the body of Christ between those who are simply "religious" and those who walk in true relationship with the Lord.
I've already quoted this statement from Isaiah in an earlier Coffee Break, but it is worth repeating here: "Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee." (Isaiah 60:1-2)
That's precisely how this clear separation between the people of God and those who simply name the name of Jesus Christ ("Having a form of Godliness, but deny the power thereof." -- II Timothy 3:5)
I've taken more time with this than I expected to, so let's see how far along I can get in finishing the narrative from last week.
When we were ending last week's discussion, I mentioned that the United Nations Security Council was expected to end the sanctions against Iraq this week. That took place on Thursday, the 27th. A unanimous vote by the Security Council initiated a process that will unfold during the coming months. Expected early this next week will be the release of the reinstated value of the IQD (now the IQN), and from all indicators we should see something on the order of a value similar to that which existed just before sanctions were imposed over 20 years ago. It's value is expected to rise over the coming months to an even greater level, and for those folks who hang onto a good percentage of their currency, the returns will be even better.
What is taking place with the Iraqi Dinar, however, is a drop in the bucket when compared to the overall picture of what is taking place. While the IQD/IQN may be the pivot currency for the events to follow, on Sunday night, June 30th, if reports are accurate, some 66 currencies will change significantly in value. This could easily result in chaos in some parts of the world, while in others -- like our Canadian friends to the north -- will experience significant gains in the value of their money against the U.S. Dollar and other worldwide currencies.
Because of the chaos within the European Union, and the fact that various central banks within the EU countries have simply reached their limits in bailing out countries like Greece, Italy, and others who are in absolute crisis, the expectation (and prediction from several prominent bankers who are part of the Basel III, Global Currency Reset) is that the Euro will be dissolved and replaced with a new currency entirely -- a currency which has true asset backing, be that gold, silver, platinum, diamonds, oil, natural gas, or whatever mix they choose.
By mid-October of this year, if all goes according to plan, 198 currencies representing the overwhelming majority of the nations of the world will have been restructured/revalued/devalued/realigned against one another based on their respective asset backing.
There is more than a little uncertainty as to what will happen within the U.S. economy when the U.S. Dollar is devalued by 50% -- a two stage event expected to be completed by October 8th. But the U.S. Dollar is not the only currency taking a hit of this magnitude. Many other currencies are going to suffer similarly. The world is going to experience an economic shaking the likes of which has never happened before in history.
There is both danger and benefit in the events to unfold. The danger comes in the form of people who are unprepared for the losses they are likely to suffer, and the panic that ensues. The benefit will be to those believers, especially those within the Bride of Christ, who have been forewarned and have prepared themselves against this day. Not since the children of Israel departed Egypt carrying Egypt's wealth with it has there been such a transfer of wealth into the hands of God's people.
The events taking place are going to result in more than a few billionaires within the body of Christ -- billionaires who have both a commission from the Lord and an anointing to help fund this last great harvest prior to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ -- even perhaps a half-dozen trillionaires, and literally millions of new millionaires. If these numbers stagger you, one only has to remember that more than $47 Trillion gets traded daily on the FOREX exchanges around the world.
But, folks, here's where things get serious! Those people who experience this newly-acquired wealth, who do not put the Kingdom of God FIRST, who forget that this blessing is from the Lord, who neglect to sow their first fruits, will before long be in worse shape than they were before the transfer took place.
I remind you of exactly what God said about it:
"But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth, that He may establish his covenant which He sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God." (Deuteronomy 8:18-20)
This is a once-in-history event tailor made by Holy Spirit to fund what God is about to do. It has already happened, but there is a shift in the realm of the Spirit in the atmosphere. A new era among God's people is unfolding. It's a new day! It's a new season!
Over the years I've discovered that when God's people don't have the nagging of unpaid bills, debt, mortgage payments to make, automobile payments, the weight of credit card payments, etc., all weighing them down subconsciously, they walk in a liberty in God that just doesn't exist otherwise. When people see the marvelous provision of God that frees them once and for all from financial bondage, they discover an ability to believe God's Word in a dimension they've never walked in before.
Whether there is a direct correlation between total financial freedom, coupled with the ability to obey God at a moment's notice without any concern as to monetary costs and the ability to walk in the midst of the kinds of signs and wonders that draw people like a magnet to know the God of this kind of liberty, it is my conviction that God is doing this NOW so as to free those who will be on the cutting edge of the "greater works" that Jesus promised from all financial constraints.
What I've just described, however, is only one side of this Global Currency Reset, the Basel III Protocols and the Babylon II software. There's more to come, and that's where we'll go next week.
Blessings on you!
