Florida Governor Ron DeSantis seems to be the lone politician/leader of significance who sees clearly through the smog and fog of deception in the issue of digital demonomics. He has called on the Florida legislature to prohibit federal digital impositions upon the citizens of his state.
“The Biden administration’s efforts to inject a Centralized Bank Digital Currency is about surveillance and control,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. He continued:
“Today’s announcement will protect Florida consumers and businesses from the reckless adoption of a “centralized digital dollar” which will stifle innovation and promote government-sanctioned surveillance. Florida will not side with economic central planners; we will not adopt policies that threaten personal economic freedom and security.”
The state’s chief financial officer, Jimmy Patronis, expanded on his governor’s assessment of the proposed digital dollar matters:
“Governor DeSantis is ahead of the curve when it comes to protecting individual rights. A Central Bank Digital Currency is the cornerstone of a federal government that could track each and every transaction that happens in the world. There would be no privacy, and if there is no privacy, there are no rights. In the same way, Florida is fighting back against the IRS, we need to fight back against this program. It’s how we protect freedom, liberty, and prosperity.”
Some years ago, some top people of economic/financial acumen—such as G. Edward Griffin—were concerned, kind, and generous enough to condescend to my request (I am woefully inadequate at dealing with such stratospherics of thought) to contribute chapters to our book, Demonomics: Satan’s Economy and Your Future. I remain thankful to the Lord and grateful to each of those contributors.
These financial experts laid out the way things were trending that would lead to tyrannical control by the globalist elite. At the time of the book’s release, things were well on the way to proving their predictions accurate, right down to the details of the coming transformation of America, the singular nation with the most profound influence on global monetary matters.
The one thing I might have somewhat contributed to the book (and I must give Todd Strandberg credit for the idea) was the title. The word “demonomics” accurately frames this world system of evil. The love of money is indeed the root of all kinds of demonically inspired evil.
In that book, I wrote:
Like it or not, believe it or not, you and I are being swept along by the tide of human history toward something profoundly ominous. Hourly news accounts, no matter how much they’ve been doctored to try to present a recovering national and global economic picture, engender fearful concerns about things to come…
History is replete with attempts to reshape national and even global economic realities. Money equals power, and power exerts control upon this fallen planet. Power is the ultimate endgame of all who seek it for themselves.
Henry Kissinger put it this way: “Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.”
The declaration can be understood in recalling the most ancient of accounts of an infamous personality seeking the greatest of all power:
“For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isaiah 14:13-14).
Man’s determination to do the same—acquire the power to which the angel named Lucifer aspired—hasn’t changed since the serpent first told Eve that she and Adam would be like God if they ate from the fruit of the forbidden tree (see Genesis 3:5). Following the serpent’s trail of power madness to a later time recorded in the Bible, Nimrod was the would-be one-world-order builder of his day, following the Great Flood of Noah’s time. He, like every megalomaniac since, lusted for God-like power.”
Since the publishing of that book, we have watched the voracious appetites of those determined to be the neo-Tower of Babel builders.
Their blueprint to follow Satan’s prideful plunge into perdition says it all: Build back better!
The following is also from a chapter in Demonomics. I hope it describes why things have developed to this point in 2023 and how God will deal in restraint until His judgment and wrath must fall, as described in the “days of Lot” prophecy by the Lord Jesus recorded in Luke 17:28-30:
Such is the way of man, fallen since the moment of rebellion in the Garden of Eden. Humankind has been determined to do things that seem right in their own eyes. The sin-cursed mindset will continue until the catastrophic second when God must end the rebellion as He first had to do when He destroyed all but Noah and his family in the worldwide Flood.
We are told this in the following prophecy given by the psalmist:
“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
“Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
“Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
“Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.” (Psalms 2:1-11)
The Psalms 2 prophecy is in full sail toward the point at which God will put an end to the power madness of His sin-sick creation called man. The God of Heaven will send the Son of Man—Jesus Christ—to intervene catastrophically in the insanity we are witnessing through today’s headlines.
Man’s lust for power continues to grow; he has not learned the lessons of the past because, as a whole, he regards the Word of God as irrelevant to the governance of the earth. One philosopher of renown [George Santayana] put it this way: “He who does not remember history is condemned to repeat it.”
The corruption that God saw and condemned in antediluvian times, which caused Him to destroy all upon the earth except eight people, has again reached a dangerous level. Dictators prove the truth of another bit of philosophical wisdom [by Lord Edward Acton]: “All power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
We have only to consider the dictators of most recent times to know that lust for power and love of money are locked together in the tyrannical determination to enslave people around the world…
Satan’s economy is being shaped before the eyes and ears of all who will pay attention. But, most of the world—even here in America where the free flow of information is unprecedented in history—is paying scant attention to the true nature of unfolding issues and events.
All is moving toward a predestined finale, according to God’s Word. The grand maestro orchestrating the end-of-days global economic order is none other than the serpent that started it all with his seduction of Eve, as recorded in Genesis chapter 3…
Satan is working behind the scenes with supernatural cunning to create chaos within the economies of the world. His intention is to bring about panic at a level that will incite universal demand for a new world financial order. That new economic global order can’t be achieved as long as sovereign national monetary systems exist.
Here is Satan’s endgame in a scriptural nutshell:
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 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” (Revelation 13:16-18).
Somehow, all nations—all peoples—must come under the 666 system of numbers and marks. This will happen because God’s Word says so. He cannot lie. It will be a totally different economic regime from any on earth today. But, one can sense that the instrumentalities already exist to implement and administrate such a regime. Satellites, computers, and electronic/biological chip devices come to mind, for starters.
The fiat money of the Antichrist will almost certainly be electronic in nature—an electronic funds transfer (EFT) system along the lines of the Special Drawing Rights (SDR) utilized in financial institution money exchanges today.
I personally believe it will be a hybrid Internet system in conjunction with EFT that will give Antichrist the tyrannical control after which Satan lusts. He wants to be worshiped; that is his endgame. He will force all within his reach to do so, and he will use control of the economy to accomplish that.
Those who wield the power at the top of the present world economic system will never agree easily to give up their authority. Nations won’t voluntarily surrender governmental or monetary sovereignty. It will require a crisis of unprecedented magnitude to cause fear sufficient to convince the powers that be to bow the knee to the prophesied Beast described in Revelation 13. My own belief is that it will be the Rapture of the Church that will provide that crisis.
Despite the obvious efforts to bring in Satan’s demonic plan through central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), God continues to restrain, as promised in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2. But the devil hasn’t relented in his determination to lift himself through his son of perdition, Antichrist, and cause all to worship through the 666 marks-and-numbers system of Revelation 13:16-18.
You don’t want to be here when the Church is called into Heaven and the worst times in human history begin to unfold on earth for those left behind.
Here is how to make sure you will be instantaneously safely in the loving presence of Jesus when He says, “Come up here!”:
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10).
