For the past 50 to 60 years significant ecological, economic, political and technological events or ‘signs’ have been occurring with increasing regularity and intensity in both the natural and the spiritual realms. They are happening on a world-wide basis and I believe that they provide insight into both the present and the future. In the struggle to find suitable adjectives to describe them, the media have been using words like: ‘unprecedented’, ‘of biblical proportions’, ‘catastrophic’, ‘apocalyptic’ or even ‘Armageddon’. Never before in the entire history of the world have we seen such a convergence of ‘signs’ all occurring at the same time. In common with many other Christians, I believe that these ‘signs’ indicate that we have now entered the last of the last days as described in the Bible and the final lead-up to the greatest event the world has ever seen. The return of the Lord Jesus Christ.There is no doubt that a convergence of events is taking place in the natural and spiritual realms that I believe will culminate with the money system having a huge role to play during what the Bible calls the last days. This will be a time when, according to the book of Revelation, a man called the anti-Christ (meaning in place of Christ), will be able to rise to the world stage, declare himself to be God, receive worship from all people groups and gain absolute power over all the nations just before Jesus comes. This can only be achieved through the establishment of physical and spiritual control of the political and monetary systems. This authoritarian rule will initially appear to be benevolent but will end up being totalitarian.I believe that only the Bible can shed a true light on all that is happening throughout the world today. Only the Bible can speak into the events taking place both in the natural and in the spiritual. Only these ancient prophetic scriptures can bring full enlightenment and awareness about what lies ahead. One thing is sure, as the world continues on its current trajectory: truth looks likely to continue to become the major casualty in a post-modern society that rejects the concept that anything can be absolute.

Both Web of Debt and The Public Banking Solution are written by Ellen Brown who founded the Public Banking Institute. She is one of the most readable authors , able to describe in everyday language what has got the Western world into such huge debt and what the ramifications are from being in such debt. She also provides some clear solutions about what we must all do to deal with this situation, which if left, will bankrupt all Western sovereign nations.
The Coming First World Debt Crisis
This book was written in 2006 before the current crisis began and Ann Pettifor is one of the only Economists who saw clearly what was ahead for the Western world.
In this book Ann Pettifor turned her attention from the debt crisis affecting developing countries to examine the ballooning debts of first world or OECD countries. She explores the history and roots of the forthcoming international debt crisis - economic liberalisation - and the restructuring of the international financial architecture in the early 1970s. The book goes on to explore the implications of high international indebtedness for governments, corporations, households and individuals. An important and unique contribution is Pettifor's discussion of the justice and morality of debt, particularly for individuals.
The issue of the US deficit and increasing level of individual debt has become a source of concern for governments and individuals alike. Total UK personal debt broke though the £1.1. Trillion barrier in June 2005 and is now nearer £1.4 trillion. Britain's personal debt is increasing by £1 million every four minutes. This situation is echoed in the US and throughout Europe. The national debt is fast approaching $17 trillion and with unfunded liabilities is nearly $125 trillion. Pettifor's book made a strong appeal for the need for change to the current situation to avert the coming crisis and argues for a new financial architecture.
The truth is that since writing this book, the overall debt situation has grown even more and is now at crisis point once again.
This book will give insight in a clear way that the average reader will be able to grasp as well to understand that we all need to take personal responsibility to act and inform our local politicians
What Has Government Done to Our Money?
FEW ECONOMIC SUBJECTS ARE more tangled, more confused than money. Wrangles abound over “tight money” vs. “easy money,” over the roles of the Federal Reserve System and the Treasury, over various versions of the gold standard, etc. Should the government pump money into the economy or siphon it out? Which branch of the government? Should it encourage credit or restrain it? Should it return to the gold standard? If so, at what rate? These and countless other questions multiply, seemingly without end.
Perhaps the Babel of views on the money question stems from man’s propensity to be “realistic,” i.e., to study only immediate political and economic problems. If we immerse ourselves wholly in day-to-day affairs, we cease making fundamental distinctions, or asking the really basic questions. Soon, basic issues are forgotten, and aimless drift is substituted for firm adherence to principle. Often we need to gain perspective, to stand aside from our everyday affairs in order to understand them more fully.
This is particularly true in our economy, where interrelations are so intricate that we must isolate a few important factors, analyse them, and then trace their operations in the complex world. This was the point of “Crusoe economics,” a favourite device of classical economic theory. Analysis of Crusoe and Friday on a desert island, much abused by critics as irrelevant to today’s world, actually performed the very useful function of spotlighting the basic axioms of human action.
Of all the economic problems, money is possibly the most tangled, and perhaps where we most need perspective. Money, moreover, is the economic area most encrusted and entangled with centuries of government meddling.
