An interesting verse in God's Word may be found in the book
of Revelation 16:19, "And the great city was divided into three parts, and the
cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to
give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath."
In America today we have the Rockefeller family one of whom
is David Rockefeller, a well-known wealthy financier. This man set up a group
called the Trilateral Commission and has divided the world into three major
regions each with their own standing army:
- Southeast Asia and the Pacific.
It is for this reason that the APEC conference was held in
Auckland city recently, where people from Southeast Asia came to decide future
policy for this region of the world.
In Europe we see them setting up a new economy called the
Euro, in America, all the way from north of Alaska down to the southern coasts
of South America, there is a move afoot to use the American Dollar. And now we
are not surprised as we see the third area being set up ready for some sort of a
single currency. We quote from the Waikato times, 3 April 2000:
"Asia should create an economic zone with a single currency
to catch up with the US and Europe, a senior politician in Japan's ruling
"I think we should create it definitely," Hiromu Nonaka,
former chief Cabinet secretary and a key member in the Liberal Democratic Party,
The region's currency "could be the won or yuan and it
should not necessarily be the yen", Nonaka said.
"Japan's past emerges to reveal old scars when you go
with the yen," he said.
Many Asian nations are negative to a yen economic zone due to
memories of Japanese colonial rule before the end of World War II." End
Now, just to warm New Zealanders and Australians up to the
idea of a change of currency, we read again in the Waikato times, 15 April 2000,
Anzac dollar a step closer
"An "Anzac dollar" has moved a step closer after
Parliament announced it is to investigate a single transtasman currency.
Parliament's foreign affairs, defence and trade select
committee yesterday said it would assess the benefits of the Closer Economic
Relations trade agreement between Australia and New Zealand and how it might be
David Tripe, the director of the Massey Centre for Banking,
said the select committee inquiry would help to push the issue on to the
political agenda, and an Anzac dollar could replace the New Zealand and
Australian dollars within the next 10 years.
"It's got to the stage now where the argument is not
should we have a common currency, but who should we have the common currency
with," he said, referring to calls for New Zealand to adopt the US dollar.
"Australia's much closer, and our economic linkages are a
lot stronger; that therefore starts to make sense."....
Last week New Zealand's Ambassador to the US, former prime
minister Jim Bolger, urged New Zealand and Australia to follow the EU move to a
single currency." End Quote
It's exciting isn't it!? And now we turn to the Sunday
Star Times, 30 April 2000, and see an article by Michael Laws:
"Equally it is inevitable that the world will soon be
apportioned into three great trading blocs -– Asia, Europe and America -– and
that, ultimately, they too will agree on a common international currency.
(Authors note: did you see that -– this man is
obviously in touch with what is going on behind the scenes and has simple
vindicated what I said earlier on in this article.)
...The move towards a global order is an inevitable
consequence of human progress. And each country, including New Zealand, will
continue to play its part. No matter how timid those first steps." End Quote
Readers of our newspaper may ask, "How does this affect us?"
The answer is, we are members of another country, a city whose builder and maker
Upon being born again we are called pilgrims and strangers
and therefore we do not have concerns about this old world because we are
temporary citizens passing through.
Hebrews 11:13-16 "These all died in faith, not having
received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of
them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on
the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a
country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they
came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire
a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be
called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city."
