The Lord is opening First Seal of the Apocalypse, Revelation 6:1-2, and he is bringing forth the EU ECB IMF Troika, and establishing its fiscal rule over Greece, as it has lost its debt sovereignty, and has to look to the sovereign authority of the Troika for fiscal aid. Yes, look! A white horse. The one riding it has a bow with no arrows affixed to it. A crown is given to him. He goes forth conquering so he might finish his conquest. We can identify several elements in this First Seal:
- a crowned king
- with a bow, having no arrows affixed to it
- riding a white horse
- having conquered
This first horseman of the apocalypse is passing the baton of sovereignty from nation states to the the EU ECB IMF Troika. With the provision of seigniorage aid to Greece, the appointment of technocratic government in Greece and Italy, and with Mario Draghi providing the Long Term Refinancing Operation, LTRO, that is the ECB’s funding facility, whereby the ECB takes in distressed securities and loans out money for three years, at the average of the ECB’s benchmark rate, currently 1%, over the period of the loan, the seigniorage of fiat money, that is the moneyness of fiat money, is failing, and the seigniorage of diktat is increasing.
The Sovereign Lord God, Psalms 2:4-5, is operating through the first horseman of the apocalypse to bring forth a New Europe, where the Sovereign, Revelation 13:5-10, and his banking partner, the Seignior, Revelation 13:11-18, will rule over a federal Europe, with fiscal rule and fiscal sovereignty coming through a fiscal union, and the ECB or the Bundesbank, empowered a federal bank.
The ten toes of regional global governance presented in Daniel 2:31-33, being mired in the iron of diktat and clay of democracy, will eventually crumble, and the Sovereign and the Seignior will eventually rise to rule the world, and install a one world government, Daniel 7:7, a one world currency, and provide global seigniorage, Revelation 13:17-18.
Other horsemen will follow in the first horseman’s steps to assure that regional global governance rules over all of mankind, red symbolizing violence and war, black symbolizing starvation and misery, and pale symbolizing devolution and death.
The first horseman has a single crown (Gk. stephanos) of victory, whereas in Revelation 19, Jesus has many crowns (Gk. diademata), signifying His sovereignty.
In our increasingly credit devalued and currency depreciated world, only diktat can provide order and security. People will be amazed by this, they will marvel, and place their trust in diktat; they will give their full allegiance to it, Revelation 13:3-4. If one perceives freedom and choice, then enjoy it while one may. Open Europe relates that Welt and FTD report the former chairman of the Federation of German Industries Hans-Olaf Henkel, a well-known critic of the euro, has joined the ‘Free Voters’ political platform, which will run in the 2013 German national elections. A comment piece in FT Deutschland notes that “with Henkel, all those voters who are critical of eurozone bailouts can have a political voice.” Mr Henkel is an anachronism in the Age of Diktat, where only the Sovereign and the Seignior have political voice, and use their political capital to replace fiat money, as well as to rule in a totalitarian collective. The Zero Hedge report Swiss, Germans Set To Unleash Capital Controls, foretells draconian authoritarian measures over investments are coming.
The statue of the progression of human governments, Daniel 2:31-44, reveals that God has purposed for an eternal kingdom which will be ruled by His Son, Revelation 2:26-27, where He will reign in righteousness, Isaiah 11:4-5, … Isaiah 16:5, … Isaiah 32:1. His kingdom will be characterized by peace, Isaiah 2:4. The human life span of those with earthly bodies will increase, Isaiah 65:20-23, sickness and deformities will be healed, Isaiah 29:17-19, … Isaiah 33:24. The earth itself will also experience restoration as its decay will be reversed and the topography of the earth will be changed, Isaiah 2:2, … Ezekiel 47-48, … Zechariah 14:4-10, … Romans 8:19-23. There will be no double entry bookkeeping, and no credit or debt issued. Social problems of poverty will be solved, Psalm 72:12-13. The earth will enjoy productivity as even the deserts and wilderness will become useful, Isaiah 35:1-7, … Amos 9:13-14, … Zechariah 14:8.
God has moved artists to develop art depicting our apocalyptic age. There is a lot of apocalyptic sculpture and paintings at Denver International Airport, including the horse that one blogger says ”looks as if it galloped straight out of hell.”
