We’ve all heard of the coming one-world government and single world currency. In fact, prophecy watchers have experienced these terms so often that there is a tendency to ignore any news that mentions them.
But now, there is a new twist to the story … from the Russians, no less! Russia’s leader, Dmitry Medvedev has predicted a coming global currency. As reported on July 10th by Bloomberg financial news, he called for a new form of money at the recent Italian meeting of the G-8:
"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.’Medvedev, Russia’s third president, rose to power as a legal expert in Russia’s International Relations Committee (IRC). He gained fame in devising methods whereby the government could legally mingle its bureaus with corporate operations, real estate and land deals. He became Chairman of the Board at Gazprom, Russia’s huge energy company.
"‘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.
"The question of a supranational currency ‘concerns everyone now, even the mints,’ Medvedev said. The test coin ‘means they’re getting ready. I think it’s a good sign that we understand how interdependent we are.’
"Medvedev has repeatedly called for creating a mix of regional reserve currencies as part of the drive to address the global financial crisis, while questioning the U.S. dollar’s future as a global reserve currency. Russia’s proposals for the G-20 meeting in London in April included the creation of a supranational currency."
In 2005, he was appointed as First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian government. In 2008, he became Russia’s President.
It is important to note his legal and financial background. As a corporate bureaucrat, by training and vocation for his entire adult life, he is an "insider" in monetary matters. Therefore, when he held up that coin for reporters to see, he was making a rock-solid prediction of what he and his peers expect to be the future … the near future.
Little does he know that he was simply repeating a truth that Bible students have preached throughout the last century. He held up the coin as a visual aid to make his point.
Its obverse design features the words, "United Future World Currency," surrounding five different types of tree leaves sprouting from a single stem. Apparently, these symbolize different groups of nations. We are immediately reminded of a biblical prophecy uttered by our Lord to His disciples:
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.Here, the phrase "All the trees," is an expression for the rise of the Gentile nations surrounding Israel in the latter days.
"And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
"When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
"So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand" (Lk. 21:28-31).
On its reverse side, the coin has a large numeral "1," and the words "Unity in Diversity" and the year 2009. It is also marked "Test – Limited Issue."
It was delivered to the G-8 participants to send a message about the future of this world. Medvedev and others got the message loud and clear.
The coin was minted in Brussels, Belgium by a group that calls itself, "United Future World Currency." It is open in its belief that only a global monetary system will finally bring together the world’s diverse societies.
Its public statement is unmistakable. It says:
"The world in a coin. This is our vision, our hope. It is a necessity and a challenge. What seems an impossible dream becomes an inevitable historic, economic and social process. It is an event, which is intertwined with the fate of human evolution.The group’s vision statement is based upon the idea of humanity’s upward evolution toward what they see as higher and higher forms of social expression. It is obvious that they regard independent nations with separate constitutions, as barriers to the advancement of society.
"A single currency becomes the premise for an increasingly global planet. A virtual currency capable of speaking a single, comprehensive language to foster humankind’s innate desire to go farther, to surpass boundaries, and move towards true principles of peace, freedom, brotherhood and understanding beyond issues of race, political and religious beliefs and party interests.
"We are presenting the peoples of nations, governments, institutions, intellectuals, ordinary people, pragmatists and idealists, scholars and, above all, young people – the real protagonists of the future – with a simple, ingenuous yet determined long-run vision for building an ideal bridge with tomorrow and interpreting a dream to transform into reality.
"In this program, currency yet again assumes the principle goal, which it has had since its invention centuries ago: to facilitate and codify human commercial and social exchange. And become a form of ‘communication’ between different peoples – a communication of ideas, ideals, information and culture. This constitutes progress, development and well-being."
Their scope is utopian and socialist. Its central features are "progress" (liberal), "development" (wealth transfer) and "well-being" (environmental control). Clearly, they regard man, not God, as the measure of social well-being.
The Bible speaks of those in the latter days who wish to create a perfect secular society. Its opinion of them is dark, indeed.
The group issuing the coin has published a ten-point manifesto. Article one reads as follows:
"‘Unity in diversity’ is the foundation that drives this initiative, which started up in 1996. Its aim is to bring people together and go beyond national stereotypes. Its historical importance is even greater than its economic one; it is a goal built on faith, common hope, and the unification of cultural and spiritual roots."Here, we find a secular view of the world system and its future, built on faith, hope and unity. This is nothing less than religious belief, built on a secular base.
After another eight articles detailing the group’s action plan, Article ten concludes the manifesto:
"It will be the responsibility of the world’s future citizens and the governments they put in place to make our Project a reality. This project is driven by a firm belief in the unification and coexistence of different peoples. It aims to promote an increasingly equal distribution of the planet’s resources and human intellect."And there we have it – redistribution of the planet’s wealth, so that all can have an equal share. Equality, idealized in the ancient hope of building a world ruled by wise men. Such plans have always failed; the Bible says that they always will.
Had not Dmitry Medvedev held the coin aloft, we would hardly have noticed this group and its world coin. But it caught his attention, and it is only a matter of time before the world follows suit. Breitbart.com reported that while holding the coin, he said,
"In all likelihood something similar could appear and it could be held in your hand and used as a means of payment. This is the international currency."These days, no one is hiding the coming New World Order.
