Medvedev shows off supra-national coin

"And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name." Rev 13:16-17

The verses above tell of a time when the world economy will be united as one, commerce will be accomplished by a mark. Anyone not accepting the mark will be killed. The mark is the ticket into the economy. Buying food, paying rent, receiving salaries will all go through the Mark. However it really is a mark of worship, for taking it means that one accepts worshipping the Beast (Antichrist). Refusing the mark means you are excluded from the global system of commerce, and worse, it means you will be killed.

Two things have to be accomplished prior to the mark being developed. First, the technology must exist for the mark to be instituted. This technology must be so sophisticated that all who refuse it are known to government officials in a central location, (so they can be tracked down to be killed); and those who accept it can be tracked also, so they will not be killed, and will be allowed to participate in commerce. It also means the technology must be so far-reaching that it can accurately dip into every individual's bank account.

Secondly, the psychology of the world at the time the Mark will be proposed means that nations must be willing to abandon their sovereign national currency. Abandoning national feelings for and identity of themselves in exchange for a cold, impersonal mark is a difficult thing for a nation to accomplish. This would be a drastic change, and likely the global economy would have to be so terrible that the 194 nations on earth would be willing to accept this change.

That change took a step closer this week.

Medvedev Shows Off Sample Coin of New ‘World Currency’ at G-8
July 10 (Bloomberg) -- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev illustrated his call for a supranational currency to replace the dollar by pulling from his pocket a sample coin of a “united future world currency.” “Here it is,” Medvedev told reporters today in L’Aquila, Italy, after a summit of the Group of Eight nations. “You can see it and touch it.”

The coin, which bears the words “unity in diversity,” was minted in Belgium and presented to the heads of G-8 delegations, Medvedev said. The question of a supranational currency “concerns everyone now, even the mints,” Medvedev said. The test coin “means they’re getting ready."

It takes many people and a lot of time to develop a coin. It must be designed, the motto must be decided. Metal must be chosen and materials gathered, and finally it must be minted. You can see it here. To have a coin at the ready to show at the G8 economic summit is a huge step toward the moment we are sure is coming: diverse nations united, trading in supranational currency. Can you hear His footsteps?
