A group of world leaders from the top twenty developed and emerging economies that represent 85% of the world's economy and two-thirds of it's population are meeting in Washington D.C. to discuss how to contain the worldwide financial crisis.
In preliminary meetings around the world, these leaders have already discussed how a new global financial structure must be put in place to take care of these present problems and make sure that this does not happen again. All of the leaders agree that there is a need for urgency and that the proper action now could stimulate growth in all economies, but this can only be done through an agreement to bring about a global financial structure and have it in place in the very near future.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The leaders from the top twenty developed and/or emerging economies meeting in Washington to put in place a global financial structure to confront a worldwide financial crisis is a precursor to a scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy for the last days.
This weekend in Washington D.C. the leaders of twenty nations will meet to set in place a global structure to help cure the present international financial crisis and at the same time, take care of any future financial problems. In regional meetings around the world, these leaders have already discussed plans for what they believe will be a new world order financially - a plan that must take control of the economies of this present world.
If you think this sounds similar to what Bible prophecy calls for in the last days, you are right. Revelation 13:16-17 reveals a financial plan where those who want to buy or sell must have a special mark on the forehead or the right hand. This same passage in Revelation states that the Antichrist, a one world leader, will take the lead of this new economic structure and that the headquarters for this new economic system will be in Babylon which is modern-day Iraq (Revelation 18).
World leaders at an economic summit in Washington are indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
