In many previous posts, I’ve written that the biblical prophecy of Revelation 17-18 foretells that the current global system of world finance will be torn down and collapse in the latter days of our current age, to be replaced by a new global system called “the beast.” This biblical prophecy foretells that an alliance of “seven heads and ten horns” will wage war on the current global financial system and successfully tear it down at some point (Revelation 17:2-3, 9-16). This prophesied “war” is one which may have a military manifestation, but it will surely be a financial/monetary war to be sure. It may sometimes be “out in the open,” but it will surely also be waged behind-the-scenes far from public or media scrutiny.

My thanks to a reader who sent me the first link. It includes a list of 36 prominent bankers in key positions who have mysteriously died at the heights of their careers. This list includes the grandson of famous global banker, John D. Rockefeller, and all on the list have apparently died in 2014. The second link includes an expanded list of dead global bankers and financiers which lists 64 such figures who have died under mysterious circumstances over the last few years. This expanded list includes the son of John Corzine, the head of MF Global, a large Wall Street money-management firm, which mysteriously “lost” billions of dollars of their clients’ money. Mr. Corzine is an ex-US Senator, an ex-Governor of New Jersey and a former CEO of Goldman Sachs (third link). Personally, I find it hard to believe a sophisticated “money man” like Mr. Corzine could simply “lose” billions of his clients money without a clue about where it all went. Congress has done some investigations, but it’s my viewpoint that Congress usually looks at suspicious matters involving ex-senators with a blind eye. Interestingly, the second link is entitled “Is someone targeting the World’s Bankers?,” and despite the fact that the long list of dead bankers and financiers looks way too long to be coincidental, the article concludes this long list of untimely deaths is just a “coincidence.” Personally, I doubt it. The article poses the question of whether someone was trying “To bring down the banking system?” but doesn’t think that is the reason behind the long list of banker deaths. Based on the prophecy of Revelation 17-18, we should expect there to be a financial “war” going on behind the scenes as the “seven heads and ten horns” work actively to tear down the current Babylon the Great system and replace it with one more to their liking.

The fourth link, from earlier in 2014 when the number of dead bankers was only at eight, posed the questions of whether international bankers were being killed because they knew too much or were they committing suicide over shame at the corruption they were involved with? It is also possible that insider bankers realize the extent of the financial crisis coming to the world and they have opted for suicide, even as some bankers and financiers reportedly opted for suicide rather than face the financial collapse that occurred in 1929.

It is not only bankers and financiers that are suddenly turning up dead. The last link, from the BBC, details the “accidental” death of Christophe de Margerie, the CEO of France’s Total oil company just after he met with Russia’s top leaders at Moscow. He died in an “accident” at the airport as he was leaving Russia. If the death was actually planned, it does not necessarily implicate the Russians as the source of his death. That is possible, but it is just as possible that he was killed by western operatives to prevent him from cooperating with Russian leaders and bankers who are trying to bring down “Babylon the Great’s” current system of global finance. It is also possible that it was truly an accident. One does not have to be a “banker” to be involved with the financial struggle now being waged within and across the world’s global markets.

However, due to the prophecy in Revelation 17-18 that a great global financial/monetary war will occur, apparently mostly behind-the-scenes, between the entrenched global financial system (“Babylon the Great”) and a powerful group which wishes to overthrow the entrenched global financial system (“the seven heads and ten horns”), I personally suspect that many of the “suicides” of global bankers and financiers are actually “hits” which are made to look like suicides. Anyone who watches the popular TV program, NCIS or various other of the popular criminal investigative TV programs, knows that it is easy for professionals to make a murder look like a suicide.

If this rash of banker/financier deaths is not accidental, it means that the biblically-prophesied war between the “Babylon the Great” faction and the rival faction called the “seven heads and ten horns” is already happening behind the scenes around the globe. Revelation 17:16’s wording indicates to me that this war will be fought and finished with extreme prejudice. It is impossible for us laymen to know which faction’s bankers are being removed from the world scene or if both factions are losing operatives. This behind-the-scenes war would be fought on many fronts: the stock and bond markets, the oil and energy markets, the currency markets, the gold and silver markets, the base metals and other commodity markets, etc. A recent post of mine documented from global media sources the extent of corruption and manipulation that is occurring in many of these markets. Many banks have paid huge fines for their roles in manipulating global financial markets.

I think we laymen can be glad that we are not inside the world’s elite banker/financier elites. It seems to be very hazardous to one’s health to be in that category now. What it does tell me is that the prophecy of Revelation 17-18 is being implemented right now in our current time. We in the public get some glimpses into what is going on (as in these public links), but the full struggle is being waged away from public view. It is possible that we are drawing near to the fulfillment of Revelation 17-18’s prophecy, and that a sudden and open global financial crisis in the future will reveal the extent of what is now a behind-the-scenes financial/monetary war.

My final observation is that the existence of Revelation 17-18’s prophecy proves that the Creator God is fully in charge of deciding when this global financial war ends and when and how the current Babylon the Great’s system will fall. This prophecy was written almost 2000 years ago. That it is coming to pass now confirms the reality and sovereignty of the Creator God who inspired the Holy Bible , and that we are living in the biblical latter days when the events of the book of Revelation (and many other biblical prophecies) will be fulfilled.
