The Tribulation is a punishment to the world for their blasphemy and ungodly acts. God uses increasingly devastating judgments to bring the world to repentance. Many repent and are saved. But many choose not to submit. In fact, the Great Tribulation is a time when the world governmental systems fall and the world economic systems are replaced with the Beast’s. This is known as The Mark of the Beast, a mark that the Antichrist institutes in Rev 13:16-17 after he is indwelled by satan in Rev 13:3. The bible does not use the words “one world currency” nor does it use “one world government” but we can deduce these things by the verses which state “that authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.” (Rev 13:7b) and “All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain.” (Rev 13:8) and “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)
With this in mind, I report to you that a global currency now has been launched. Whether it becomes THE world currency spoken of in Revelation remains to be seen. But the concept, framework, and execution of it is a reality. It is called the WOCU, or World Currency Unit. The currency symbol for the Wocu is The plan is for nations to systematically liquidate their rapidly devaluing Dollar reserves and build new holdings in the more stable and safer WOCU, resulting in volatile-free international trade. And who would be against less volatile international trade? Hmmm…
World currency unit intended to rival U.S. dollar for supremacy
A new currency is intended to challenge the U.S. dollar as the world’s foremost reserve currency. The WOCU, short for world currency unit, was actually launched by London-based WDX Organization in September 2009, but only seems to be gaining recognition now. Its value is determined as a derivative of the exchange rates of the world’s top 20 currencies, as measured by GDP, in order to reduce the risk associated with exchange rate fluctuations. The new currency is similar to the International Monetary Fund’s special drawing rights (SDR), which the IMF uses as a reserve asset to supplement the currency reserves of its member states. Both Russia and China have been pushing for the world to switch to a new currency.
From March this year, a financier’s opinion:
The WOCU is Here! Finally, a Stable Reserve Currency to Replace the Dollar
It may sound like a character from StarWars, but starting in Q2 of 2010, the WOCU or World Currency Unit will become the medium of exchange among trading nations. This is welcome news to a world weary of Dollar hegemony and the violent and bloody US imperialism that comes along with it. One of the most beneficial aspects of the Wocu is a stabilization in the prices of imports, exports, and traded commodities — freeing the people of the world from the crippling manipulation of currencies by Central Banks, which is directly responsible for a great deal of human suffering at the consumer level. For me, it’s not such great news since I am a currency trader and rely on the international corruption of big banks to make a living. Oh well, it’s a small price to pay to finally jettison the Dollar and the massive reserves that nations are forced to hold [often against their will] in order to do business with one another. For my part, I’ll find another Plutocratic enclave to exploit. Meanwhile, the Wocu is apolitical — and it’s about d*&# time.
“The Wocu has been developed as a derived world currency unit to allow corporations, financial institutions, governments and even individuals to trade across national boundaries and hold foreign assets with minimal risk of losses caused by exchange rate fluctuations. How does the Wocu differ from the IMF’s SDR [special drawing rights]? The SDR, while a valuable tool, is based on 4 currencies and re-weighted only every 5 years, unlike the Wocu which is re-weighted by an independent institute every six months (when the IMF releases its GDP figures).”
For many years, people thought that the Euro, the currency for 16 of the 27 European nations, would become the supranational currency for the world. However, we have seen the euro’s fortunes fall lately as well as the dollar’s. God spends a great deal of time carefully setting up conditions for prophecy fulfillment, but when prophecy is fulfilled, it happens fast. Just two years ago, who would have thought that the US Dollar would fall so low? That we’d have a Muslim president dedicated to destroying this country? That the European Nations would be bankrupt? It will be interesting to watch the WOCU gain traction. We know the result, the bible tells us. What is interesting is the journey, seeing Him work, and being alive to see His promises come to fruition.
Speaking of journey, there are two paths, and you do not need to be faced with the horrific choice to either take the mark and eat, or refuse the mark and starve and get beheaded. You can accept Jesus NOW, by repenting of your sins (to be sorry for the bad things you have thought, said, and did). You can ask Jesus to forgive those sins, and make Him the Lord of your life. If you submit to Him, He will send the Holy Spirit to indwell you, guide you, help you, and grow you. He will reveal His Plan for your life, and though you will still have daily troubles, you will know an ultimate peace that passes all understanding. Then you will be raptured to be with Jesus always. (1 Corinthians 15:52; 1 Thess 4:16). The choice is yours. It will always be yours. But the risks FAR outweigh the benefits the longer you put off making it.
