Götterdämmerung Is About To Happen, It Is Foretold In Bible Prophecy

I. Introduction.

The Apostle John wrote from exile in prison, on the Isle of Patmos, the Revelation Of Jesus Christ, in about the year 90 AD, which foretells those things which must shortly come to pass, Revelation 1:1, meaning a series of events that once they begin, will fall quickly into place, one right after the other. And Revelation 13:3 mentions a fatal wound which will be healed; the apparent deadly wound could be described as  Götterdämmerung.

II. Revelation Chapter 13 tells of three separate beasts which rise to sovereignly direct mankind’s activities. Sovereignly means to rule in a monarch fashion, that is powerfully and authoritatively; the word came into use in 1250 to 1300 according to Dictionary.com.

A. The Bible Prophecy of Revelation 13:1-4 tells of a sovereign system which directs all of mankind’s activities through seven institutions and ten regions of global governance; the regions replace sovereign nations and their constitutions; and institute principles of global governance. The world’s governments will fail in their fiscal seigniorage, and their currencies will collapse.  Regional currencies may arise, or perhaps a global currency will be established as a means of recovery.

1) The seven heads of Revelation 13:1 symbolize mankind’s seven institutions:

1) Education,
2) Finance, Commerce and Trade,
3) Body Politic
4) Military
5) Religion
6) Media
7) Science & Technology

2) The ten horns of Revelation 13: 1 symbolize ten regions of global governance.

The Club of Rome made the call for regional governance in February 1974.

The Club of Rome is the premier think tank comprised of approximately 100 global leaders including scientists, philosophers and political advisors which envisioned totalitarian regional governance and a unifying global ethic — a world consciousness to solve interlocking world problems; and it relates this through published material such as ‘Mankind at the Turning Point’, and ‘The First Global Revolution’

Brent Jessop writing in GlobalResearch.ca provides the historical account:

“Therefore we have concentrated out efforts in this report on a number of vital worldwide issues whose mastery we consider essential for man’s survival and for an eventual transition into sustainable material and spiritual development of humanity.”

“If the human species is to survive, man must develop a sense of identification with future generations and be ready to trade benefits to the next generations for the benefits to himself. If each generation aims at maximum good for itself, Homo Sapiens is as good as doomed.”

“In order to achieve balance between regions in global development a more coherent regional outlook must be developed in various parts of the world so that the “preferable solutions” will be arrived at out of necessity rather than out of good will… we are talking about a regional sense of common destiny that will find its expression through appropriate societal, economic concepts and objectives… Such a regional outlook will create a “critical mass” necessary for the practical implementation of new and innovative ways of functioning in cultural, economic, and agricultural areas, especially on the rural level.”

North America is one of the ten regions of global governance called for.

This region of global governance was announced by George Bush, Vincente Fox and Stephen Harper at Baylor University on March 23, 2005; this triumvirate committed the continent to global principles of security and prosperity.

The Canadian think tank, Frazer Institute, makes a case for The Amero as the North American Continent’s Currency relating: “In sum, the alternative methods for creating the benefits of a monetary union have a number of defects and basically are inferior substitutes. If a Canadian consensus emerges that flexible exchange rates are to blame for many of the country’s economic ills, monetary union is the preferred alternative institutional arrangement”.

The Eurozone is another of the ten regions of global governance.

In April and May of 2010, crisis arose over both the value of the Euro and the financial stability of European financial institutions, and as a result governance changed. Jolted by a continuing slide in the Euro, FXE, soaring sovereign debt bond yields, and soaring credit default swaps, the EU Finance and State Leaders convened the Eurozone May 2010 Summit and announced European Economic Governance, seigniorage aid for Greece, and called for a Monetary Union with seigniorage authority to issue eurobonds, and in so doing they effected a bloodless coup where they waived national sovereignty. Sovereign nations are now history they existed as a principle of a bygone era. Those living in the eurozone are no longer citizens of a nation-state; rather one is a resident in a region of global governance.

Marco Buti,  Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs, and Martin Larch, Economic Adviser, DG Economic and Financial Affairs, European Commission, write in article VoxEU article The Commission Proposals For Stronger EU Economic Governance that on September 29, 2010, the European Commission adopted a comprehensive set of policy proposals to reform and to broaden European Economic Governance which include European Semester budgetary surveillance, which vets national budgets before they are presented to Legislatures, as part of six pieces of draft legislation which are divided into two pillars, European Commission (2010c); “A new EU economic governance – a comprehensive Commission package of proposals”, 29 September. Fiscal federalism will further strengthen the global governance of the Eurozone.  

3) There are a number of outstanding characteristics of the beast system.

Revelation 13,1:  I saw the beast rising … Global corporatism and the word, the will, and the way of Leaders reigns sovereign as the law of the land replacing sovereign nations, their constitutions and the traditional rule of law. Stakeholders replace citizens in democratic leadership. The beast has been rising through the turmoil of waves of yen and dollar based carry trade investing, as well as through quantitative easing provided by the lowering of interest rates globally, and by the US Federal Reserve’s QE 1 and QE 2.

Revelation 13,2:  Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority … The leopard’s coat varies in color, providing camouflage; the leopard hunts using stealth and mainly at night or hides amid the shadows during the day, and often pounces on unsuspecting prey from trees. The bear’s foot has thick pads enabling it to trample on all kinds of potentially hazardous material; bears can run short distances very quickly or up to 40 mph, uphill or downhill.  The lion’s mouth, according to Answers.com, has canine teeth spaced such that they can slip between the cervical vertebrae of their favorite-sized prey animals, and sever the spinal cord. The shape of the back teeth, which are called carnassals instead of molars, makes them work like a pair of scissors, for cutting pieces of meat. The rest of the teeth are conical, and designed for cutting and tearing. Lions, like all cats, do not chew their food, but swallow it in chunks. They also use only one side of their mouth at a time. This trait is also common to all cats, and is caused by the inability of the jaw to move side-to-side.” Lucifer gives the beast its power, domination and authority.

Revelation 13,3: And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast … The apparent deadly wound can be described as Götterdämmerung. Yet, this violent collapse is repaired; and an amazed humanity, accepts and relies upon the beast.

Revelation 13,4:  So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” … The world worships the beast acknowledging that it is invincible.

With globalization, there has been a continual growing cohesive integration of mankind’s institutions. Rather than independence, there has been growing interdependence, as held forth by Eric J. Chaisson, who spoke at the Humanity and the Biosphere conference in Paris, France in September 2006, who elaborated on the need for a planetary civilization, the elimination of cherished concepts like national sovereignty, and an environmentally efficient symbiosis with networked machines in a merging of mankind and technology.  Chaisson states: “the next great evolutionary leap forward could be labeled “ethical evolution” – the espousal and development of a global culture, one where planetary citizenship becomes as important for us as it is for microbial life forms.”

4) The Beast System of Revelation 13:1-4 was also prophesied in Daniel 7:7.

Rudy Sanchez writes that Ten Region World Division Could Fulfill Revelation 17:12-13.  This Beast was also prophesied in Daniel 7:7.

Heartlight provides the Scofield Reference Notes (1917 Edition) for commentary on Revelation Chapter.

DontBeFooled666Blog in article The Fourth Kingdom–Iron And Clay, relates that the Beast System is  the fourth kingdom mentioned in Daniel Chapter, strong as iron, for iron breaks and smashes everything, Daniel 2: 40-44: “Accordingly, in the not-so-distant future, America (or the coalition of nations) will suffer a potentially fatal wound to one of its ‘heads’. Once revived, and as a result of the trauma from the near-fatal blow, it will have a different character than before.  It will be anti-God through and through.  It will dominate by strong displays of power.” 

B. Revelation 13:5-10 tells of a sovereign king, that is a monarch, who has sovereign power and authority to rule.

The global leader of Revelation 13:5-10 is knowable: scripture provides insight to be able to identify him.

1) Dan 8,9:  And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land …   A seemingly innocuous leader comes from the North and West, that is he comes from England or the European Union to Israel.

2) Dan 8,11:  Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down:…  He may be Jewish, this would help him, as he gains access to Israeli government and the Jewish Temple, taking away Jewish Temple sacrifice, exalting  himself to the level of the Messiah, and finally making himself out to be The Messiah.

3) Dan 8,23:  And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up … He, being in the lineage of kings, uses this to claim world leadership; and he is amongst the world’s leading occultists.

4) Revelation 13,18:  Here is wisdom; let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six …. He is a man whose gematria when decoded, comes out numerically to be 666.

One individual who might rise to power as the world’s Sovereign, is co-chair of the Council on Foreign Relations, the CFR, Robert Rubin, who was Treasury Secretary. He is shown in a 1995 photo by Stephen Crowley of The New York Times, with Alan Greenspan, who was Federal Reserve Chairman, at a House Hearing, in The New York Times article The Reckoning Taking Hard New Look At A Greenspan Legacy by Peter S. Goodman, who said of Alan Greenspan: “And his views held the greatest sway in debates about the regulation and use of derivatives, exotic contracts that promised to protect investors from losses, thereby stimulating riskier practices that led to the financial crisis. For more than a decade, Alan Greenspan has fiercely objected whenever derivatives have come under scrutiny in Congress or on Wall Street.

“What we have found over the years in the marketplace is that derivatives have been an extraordinarily useful vehicle to transfer risk from those who shouldn’t be taking it to those who are willing to and are capable of doing so,” Mr. Greenspan told the Senate Banking Committee in 2003. “We think it would be a mistake” to more deeply regulate the contracts, he added.

Another who might rise to power is covered in the Afteramerica website, that being Herman Van Rompuy, who announced that nation states are dead … The EU chief relates the belief that countries can stand alone, is a ‘lie and an illusion!’

C. Revelation 13:11-18 tells of a globally sovereign religious leader and banker.

He is the Seignior, meaning, top dog who takes a cut; in modern-day terms, a banker, he is also the world’s religious leader, and via investment and commerce connections institutes a global seigniorage wealth and commerce system . Seigniorage means top dog bank-note system, and comes from the Scottish and Bank of England financial system which was devised to maintain the value of currency The History of Seigniorage Wealth Elaine Meinel Supkis February 7, 2008 Money Matters Blog

This individual will have the connections of Tony Blair, or Jean-Claude Trichet or a Timothy Geithner and has characteristics as presented in these individual verses:

13,11 another beast … This is a third of three beasts, who is preceded by the beast system, and the beast political leader; this beast promotes the power of the former two; and convinces the world to worship them both. He is called ‘false prophet’ in Revelation 19:20 and Revelation 20:10.

13,11 out of the earth … Just as the Sovereign is the embodiment of Lucifer, Satan, the Devil, the false religious leader will be sent forth and controlled by a demon from the pit of hell.

13,11 two horns like a lamb …  This describes the relative position of the false prophet compared to the beast system which has ten horns. The word horn in scripture symbolizes authority; and lamb symbolizes peacefulness: He uses his position to adeptly resolve global economic, religious, political and natural resource conflicts. Yet his outward gentleness belays his real deceptive dealings to lord it over mankind.

13,11 like a dragon …. He has a commanding way.

13,12 exercises all the authority of the first beast … This oracle yields all the power and influence of the beast system.

13,12 causes … The word causes is used eight times of him. He yields influence to establish false world religion, which is Luciferian in nature: he entices and induces so as to eventually dominate the world.

13,12 to worship … People are compelled to accept and worship, both the beast system, and the beast world leader.

13,12 whose deadly head wound was healed … This refers to the catastrophic global financial breakdown, Götterdämmerung, which at some point in time, is to a degree, resolved.

13,13 great signs  … The words ‘great signs’ is used of Jesus in John 2:11 and John 2:23 and John 6:2. He works false miracles which cause the world to accept the beast system and the the Antichrist.

13,14 make and image to the beast … He directs construction of a symbol, that is, a representation of the beast system.

13,15 speak … The image of the beast system communicates, which is contrary to what is normal of idols.

13,15 causes to be killed … His gentle appearance is a lie, he is a killer.

13,16 a mark … He introduces a seigniorage system which is based upon the “mark” which comes from the Greek word charagma meaning “etching in”, or “tattoo upon”, or “stamp”, or “badge of servitude”, which enables one to conduct economic activity, and which authorizes one to receive economic benefits; the mark will be required in order to buy or sell ; this being further explained by David Deschesne Editor, Fort Fairfield Journal, A Mark in the Right Hand or in their Forehead, Fort Fairfield Journal, July 6, 2005.

All seigniorage comes and goes through him: all sovereign wealth funds, and banks report to him. There is no national seigniorage, as sovereign nations and their constitutions are history, as principles of global governance working through regional economic and security pacts or agreements exist; and these serve as the basis for regional currencies or a global currency.

His religious and economic power complements the military and political power of the Sovereign; and between this false prophet and the Sovereign, they own the world “lock, stock and barrel”.

III. Revelation Chapter 13, Holman Christian Standard Bible.

The Beast System rises out of the turmoil of human experience to direct and rule all of mankind’s activities.

1 And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea; he had 10 horns and seven heads; on his horns were 10 diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names.

2 The beast I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like a bear’s, and his mouth was like a lion’s mouth; the dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

3 One of his heads appeared to be fatally wounded; but his fatal wound was healed; the whole earth was amazed and followed the beast.  

4 They worshiped the dragon because he gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to wage war against him?”

The Sovereign rules for 42 Months, that is for 3 and 1/2 years

5 A mouth was given to him to speak boasts and blasphemies; he was also given authority to act for 42 months.

6 He began to speak blasphemies against God: to blaspheme His name and His dwelling—those who dwell in heaven.

7 And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them; he was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation.

8 All those who live on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name was not written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slaughtered.

9 If anyone has an ear, he should listen:

10 If anyone is destined for captivity, into captivity he goes; if anyone is to be killed with a sword, with a sword he will be killed; here is the endurance and the faith of the saints.

The Seignior institutes the mark, Greek word charagma, meaning etching in or tattoo upon, which is required in order to buy or sell.

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; he had two horns like a lamb, but he sounded like a dragon.

12 He exercises all the authority of the first beast on his behalf and compels the earth and those who live on it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.

13 He also performs great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth before people.

14 He deceives those who live on the earth because of the signs that he is permitted to perform on behalf of the beast, telling those who live on the earth to make an image of the beast who had the sword wound yet lived.

15 He was permitted to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could both speak and cause whoever would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.

16 And he requires everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on his right hand or on his forehead,

17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast’s name or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom: The one who has understanding must calculate the number of the beast, because it is the number of a man. His number is 666.

IV. The Investment Application.

A. Bill Wilby, back on January 29, 2008, wrote in Yale Global, The Dollar And The Market Mess, that the dollar was quickly loosing its seigniorage …. this is even more true today:  “Recent steps by the US Federal Reserve to lower interest rates, in an effort to stabilize global financial markets, directly contribute to a decline in the value of the dollar. That in turn leads to increases in inflation and oil prices. As a result, the dollar is in danger of losing its reserve currency status, writes equities analyst Bill Wilby for the Wall Street Journal. “The real economic benefit conveyed by the right to print the accepted global currency is called seigniorage, which results in part from the lower capital cost we derive from foreigners’ willingness to hold dollar cash,” he explains. Long accustomed to lower capital costs, the US takes that benefit for granted. In the lightning-speed world of global finance, trust is more essential than ever before. Workers, investors and business owners expect stability in currency value. Attempts by the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve to restore financial stability must make the dollar’s value a priority.”

Since that time there was a global commodities price collapse, as well as the implementation of QE 1 which integrated the banks with the US Federal government and traded out money good US Treasuries, IEI, IEF, TLT, and ZROZ, which now reside in Excess Reserves at the Fed declining in value; and accepted in distressed securities, such as those held in the mutual fund FAGIX. The Federal Reserve TARP facility was a financial, banking and economic coup that socialized losses to the people of America and privatized gains to corporations world-wide.   

Then in order to support the value of mortgage-backed bonds, MBB, held at banks, KBE, and at investment brokerages, KCE, Federal Reserve Chairman planned and finally announced QE 2 in its November 2010 FOMC meeting.

The stock market, ACWI, the bond market, BND, the commodities market, DBC, the junk bond market, JNK, and the municipal bond market, MUB, anticipating this, beginning in June of 2010, sold the US Dollar, $USD, driving the value of the Euro, FXE, from 119 to 140. Capitol took flight to the distant corners of the world, that is as far away from Wall Street as possible, flowing into the Frontier Markets, FRN, with countries such as Turkey, TUR, the emerging market, EEM, Thailand, THD.    

But a global bear stock market commenced on November 5, 2010, when World Shares, ACWI, fell from the November 4, 2010 rally high of 46.60 to the November 5, 2010 value of 46.51, on rising credit default swaps of European sovereign debt particularly that of  Ireland and Portugal; and as bond vigilantes, called the Interest Rate on the US Government  Debt, $TYX, above 4.0% as the Fed Chairman’s QE 2 constitutes monetization of debt. Currency traders then sold with major currencies, DBV, and the emerging market currencies, CEW, against the Yen, causing carry trades to unwind globally. Stocks, ACWI, and Bonds, BND, fell parabolically lower for a full week — the week of November 8, 2010 to November 12, 2010.

The dollar’s flagship seigniorage investment has been: one, the 30 Year US Treasury Bond, EDV, and it has  fallen lower from its August 26, 2010 high of 103.20; and two, the 10 Year US Government Note, TLT,  which has fallen from its August 31, 2010 high of 107.49. These are now broken financial investments that cannot sustain wealth.

  1. Tom Paine Says:

    I didn’t read your article, but I know it is nonsense because it starts from a nonsense premise, i.e., that Bible prophecy has any merit.

    Apocolyptic is an age old genre based on a scam that works like this: One writes some history, often encoded in religious mumbo jumbo, and then one makes some dire predictions of the future also often encoded in mumbo jumbo. It is usually implied that the future horrors can be avoided by turning to whatever religion or god the author is pimping for.
    Finally, the whole thing is attributed to some revered figure who died many years earlier. That way the figure it is atrributed to looks like a prophet, having “predicted” the actual history presented. The reader is expected to accept that this figure predicted the actual events that took place and that therefore the future events predicted in the apocolyptic will also come to pass unless the “prophet’s” warnings are heeded.

    A very excellent and well documented case of this is the Book Of Daniel which contains many accurate “predictions”, but at some point the predictions begin to go way wrong. Of course, the point at which they start to go wrong is just after the time of its writing, which was quite some time after Daniel, if such person is more than legend, was already dead.

    The Book of Revelations was not written by John. It was written many years after he died and attributed to him. I’ve not studied it, but I am sure that some part of the “predictions” if one could decode them, would be found to have already occured at the time of writing and the rest, which probably did not happen are just scary scenarios made up to scare the reader into accepting Jesus as Christ.

  2. Kenneth Acushla Says:

    The Word Charagma does actually mean ETCHING. A permanent tattoo on the skin where the Mark is to be ETCHED. It is well documented by the First Pastors of the Congregations in the first century that John was the writer of The Apocalypse. I would draw your attention to the prophecy re the Two Witnesses. We now have phones cameras which can instantly transmit events all over the world when it is taking place. The Great Tribulation will be a horrific time for mankind. When the Two Witnesses are put to death the whole world will see it happening and will be rejoicing in seeing it. But they will see them resurrected, ascending up into the Heavens after 3 1/2 days lying on the ground.
