First, on June 30, 2019, a freak hailstorm dropped 5 to 7 ½ feet of hail on Guadalajara, Mexico.
The temperature was in the mid-80’s, and the hail melted and refroze as it hit the earth.
The governor of the area said he had never seen anything like it, but some see similarities to the seventh plague in the days of Moses.
“Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation” (Exodus 9:23-24).
Some Bible skeptics say hail and fire wouldn’t exist at the same time, but 5 to 7 feet of hail recently fell in Guadalajara, Mexico, while the temperature was in the mid-80’s; and that is not normal.
Second, two weeks ago, I wrote about Facebook’s plans to implement a global currency called the Libra in 2020 (see “Approaching Our Blessed Hope.”)
Since that article was written, there have been two new developments.
One new development came on June 25, 2019, when Steve Forbes, a two-time candidate for the Republican nomination for Pres. of the U.S., posted an open letter to Mark Zuckerberg on his website.
Forbes believes Zuckerberg can create a global currency to replace the U.S. dollar, if he plays his cards right; and Forbes told Zuckerberg four things he wanted him to know:
Link your global currency to gold.
There have been other currencies that were successful because they were linked to gold.
A global currency linked to gold would be the most desirable currency on earth.
Call the currency the Mark instead of the Libra.
The Mark of the Beast is one thing, and a one-world currency called the Mark is another; but prophecy teachers have been linking the Mark of the Beast, tracking all buying and selling, and a one-world currency together for years.
The other new development came in early July 2019 when World Net Daily reported that about 30 public-interest groups have asked Congress to permanently or temporarily stop Facebook from creating a global currency.
According to these groups, a global currency will impact the sovereignty of nations, it will impact every person on earth, there will be privacy issues, corporate power issues, government control issues, money laundering issues, the role of the IMF, etc.
They believe it is dangerous for the U.S. to let Facebook create a global currency that will impact our national sovereignty and all of our citizens without any discussion in Congress.
Facebook is establishing a group of corporations called the Libra Association to manage the currency.
The Libra Association will be located in Switzerland because of that nation’s supposed global neutrality.
Facebook plans to issue its global currency in about a dozen nations in early 2020 (a global currency in a dozen nations perhaps less than one year from now).
Third, on July 5, 2019, it was reported that UNESCO has just made the ancient city of Babylon a World Heritage Site.
I have long believed that Babylon will be rebuilt and become the home of the one-world economic and religious systems during the Tribulation Period.
I am not predicting anything, but I will be watching to see if the Libra Association decides to locate the headquarters of their one-world currency (called the Mark???) at the World Heritage Site known as rebuilt Babylon.
I am in awe that a one-world currency may be on the horizon in the same year that the UN grants a global status to Babylon.
Fourth, I have also long believed that the Kurds will destroy rebuilt Babylon at the end of the Tribulation Period.
My last article mentioned that a delegation of Christian leaders, including some of Pres. Trump’s Faith Advisors, unofficially met with Kurdish military officials in Iraq.
The Kurds want to be an ally of the U.S., and they want the U.S. to give or sell them modern weapons.
The Christians that met with them promised to relay the message to Pres. Trump.
So, the Kurds, who may be the ones that destroy Babylon in one hour, are asking the U.S. for high-tech weapons in the same year that the UN grants a global status to Babylon; and that is roughly one generation after Israel has become a nation.
I don’t know what is going on, but it is as strange as hail in 80-degree weather.
Fifth, two small political parties that ran in Israel’s April 6, 2019, election failed to get enough votes to be included in the Israeli government.
Prime Min. Netanyahu won the election, but he couldn’t get enough support to form a new government; so he scheduled another vote.
Those two small political parties have decided to merge and run as one party in the September election.
One of their main issues will be to rebuild the Temple.
They believe their merger and support for rebuilding the Temple will easily get them enough votes to participate in the next Israeli government.
